The above is true but if you want to hear explanations here you go:Playboy talked about my parents and thats a red line for me, the other things against mike borg is that she is acting bossy in the chat and i cant take it(she is saying or i won't guarantee anything and she cant do anything). also they take words to seriously and they reported me because i said i will...but never did. and actually i didnt do anything wrong in my conversation with borg exept tell her to stop acting bossy in somehow hard way and i told her to change her name using the page i linked her.if you want to hear more then just tell me at my talk page, if not then thank you right there.I dont fear being banned from the chat and im not gonna kiss anybody's feet so i won't get banned, i was simply explaining my behaviour so if you accept it, fine if you dont, then its still fine.--LaserGhost (talkcontribs) 12:54, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

February 2003 lists

Hey Delt, here's hoping you know something about the old Forbidden/Limited lists: do you have any idea what's up with the February 2003 Lists? As far as I can tell, all additions and changes made in this list were reversed in the subsequent list. The source for this list is the same as the source I found for the May 2002 Lists, which match up with the originally posted list, though unfortunately that source has disappeared since the last time I looked. The other list pages I've created/updated all use Wayback archives of UDE's old list page.

My current theory, since the source used otherwise agreed with UDE's lists, is that this list was actually for Europe or Oceania (or some other non-NA region), but I don't have any way to prove or disprove this.

While I'm at it, you wouldn't happen to know of any sources for the old OCG lists, would you? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 09:25, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm, you know how to make a guy feel old.
It looks to me like the February 2003 Lists are for the OCG, which had those cards and the April 2003 Lists are for the TCG, which didn't have those cards. (It's a lot more likely than them deciding to unlimit "Harpie's Feather Duster" and "Sinister Serpent"; two long term residents at 1 and 0.) The OCG and TCG used to use different Forbidden and Limited Lists, where some cards would have different status, even if they were released in both regions. That would explain why some of the other cards are different. -- Deltaneos (talk) 11:04, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
I actually don't remember where the source for these was. It is entirely possible the early ones are OCG list.--TwoTailedFox (My Talk Page) 17:35, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
I've sourced all of them except the May '02 and Feb '03 lists to UDE's old site, so those ones are definitely the TCG lists.
Also, as a general note (I probably should have said this earlier): don't trust what I've written in the ledes for the lists, in terms of what was added and changed. While adding the April '03 list, I looked over the earlier ones and noticed several discrepancies that I'll need to fix at some point. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:53, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
That's what I'm here for. =D
That would help explain things. If we can just find a source for the old OCG lists, then, we'll really be in business. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:32, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
You guys probably already have found these but just incase, this but it only goes to 2005, and this has all the lists except 1999 but no official sources. Here are two older lists, not sure on the date though looks like 2004 here and here. Hopefully this helps a bit. ^_^ Look234 (talkcontribs) 18:00, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Unofficial?

I asked this to Cheesedude, but he couldn't answer me for sure. If a card is played in the manga, but the card itself is not shown, and the effect is just explained in a dialogue - is the Japanese card lore of that card considered an {{Unofficial lore}}?LegenaryAsariUgetsu (talkcontribs) 23:13, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

I would say yes (I would also say I make for a funny-looking Deltaneos, but that's neither here nor there =D ). Such cases should be noted somewhere, probably on the card's trivia page. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 05:12, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
In the same token, this could also apply to the English lores of ALL anime-only cards. The dub has no card text, which means no lore, which means unofficial. However, I think applying it that way is just pointless...and would probably confuse more people than it would help, honestly. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 14:18, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
But in this case, if we have the lore shown in Japanese, then we couldn't consider it unofficial, as they cannot change the effect of a card in the dub. However, um, for example: Remember Kaito's Feelings Towards the Future? If we didn't have the image for the card showing the lore, we would never know it would inflict 4000 damage to Kaito if he didn't Overlay the Special Summoned monsters. So, the lore would be incomplete. This is why I came up with this question. The cards may have other effects, limitations, drawbacks, etc, but we can't figure it out if they don't say or the card is not shown. And you know in the manga many cards don't have the lore written in the card. LegenaryAsariUgetsu (talkcontribs) 16:04, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

Chat Ban

Hey, I need some enlightenment on a recent chat issue. A little while ago, me and a few fellow users from the Dragon Ball Wikia decided to visit this wiki's chat. However, the only chat moderator on at the time (NexusShiker) somehow came under the impression that we had malicious intent there. Even though we were not breaking any apparent rules, we were all eventually banned by this user. I find this highly unfair, could you shed some light on our dilemma? --NobleTrigon 17:31, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

Delta why are User:Spongebob456 and User:NexusShiker Chatmods? they are just two power abusers. I got banned from Sponge and when i went to see the reason it said "Miss-click" ok seriously what is that?--LaserGhost (talkcontribs) 11:33, July 15, 2012 (UTC)

"Miss-click" was the reason given for changing the length of the ban. He meant "misclick", as in he originally clicked on the wrong length. The reason he gave for the ban was "insulting". You can view the full log. -- Deltaneos (talk) 12:09, July 15, 2012 (UTC)

Chat Rules?

Hello delta. I am being frequently banned because of extremely small insults (stupid/noobs) so I ask you to put a list of Insults that deserve a ban. because of the power abusers banning people for no proper reason. oh and sponge said i was insulting at other people's back while they happened to be away, and that person didnt bother putting his brain to work and figure out that if anybody returns they will see my insult meaning it is not behind people's back.--LaserGhost (talkcontribs) 14:52, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Nexus and me have been discussing the Chat Rules. That may be something to add to the list. The severity of the insult may be up to the Chat Mod's discretion however. --SuperSponge!! 15:04, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Template:Card lists and Template:NavboxList

Hey Delt, do you have any idea what's going on with the archseries member lists on {{Card lists}}? Archetype [anti]support lists don't do the same, even after a null edit, and I can't find anything obviously wrong in any related template. The only possibility I can think of is that there's a problem with using a category in the query, which is supported by this edit. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:47, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Something to do with spacing. [[Archetype or series__card list for::Abyss]] works, while [[Archetype or series_card list for::Abyss]] doesn't. The double space is needed for the cards, whose archetype is automatically taken from the page name some. The single space is needed for the others. -- Deltaneos (talk) 20:28, July 17, 2012 (UTC)
Actually once you null edit one of the other list pages, you'll see they all need the double space. We could just change Template:Card lists to return ?Archetype or series  card list, with the two spaces. But I think we'd both rather have it fixed, so that they use the proper single space. -- Deltaneos (talk) 20:41, July 17, 2012 (UTC)
It was just a bit of phantom spacing. Just need to let the cache for each page clear now. -- Deltaneos (talk) 20:56, July 17, 2012 (UTC)
(A bit late, but...) Thanks for figuring it out. Whitespace bugs are nothing short of retarded - you shouldn't have to worry about whitespace unless you're doing string manipulations, in which case you (usually) want to explicitly handle whitespace character-by-character, just like everything else in the string. This is not such a case, thus this is an incredibly retarded bug (and a regression at that, since it worked prior to the upgrade). =/ ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:06, July 18, 2012 (UTC)
They can be a pain alright. The Factbox, which I've been in favour of removing, is what helped me spot the problem. I noticed the extra space after copy pasting the property name from the factbox. I don't know how I would have picked up on it otherwise. Despite its assistance, I still feel like backstabbing it and having it removed. ^^ -- Deltaneos (talk) 00:10, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
You and me both. It's great the 0.0001% of the time I'm playing with properties in templates, and otherwise it's just an almost completely useless waste of screen real estate. I'd be perfectly happy with it not displayed by default, with a switch of some sort (maybe something like __FACTBOX__) to display it on a page. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:32, July 19, 2012 (UTC)

Xyz Colosseo

Why did you move this? I said that Colosseo is the original Italian name, and your reason was the talk about kana, even though that has nothing to do with this. MadRest 22:31, July 19, 2012 (UTC)

Cheesedude moved it, not me. I would have thought "Xyz Colosseo" was right too. But in the conversation he linked to, we were talking about when Japanese names use katakana to write a word in a language other than English. And whether we should leave them in the language used or translate them to English.
One way of looking at it is for example the Japanese name for "Stardust Dragon" uses English words. Its Italian name uses the Italian words, despite the Japanese name using the English ones. For "Xyz Colosseo", the Japanese name uses an Italian word, so the English one could use the English word, despite the Japanese name using the Italian one.
Really, both translations, "Xyz Colosseo" and "Xyz Colosseum" are correct and arguments could be (and have been) made in favour of using either one. In the long term, I think our best option is to see what English name 4Kids/Konami give it. -- Deltaneos (talk) 23:25, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
I thought the point of the kana conversation was that we should only leave foreign loan words that way if they are names. "Colosseo" isn't a name, so we should use "Colosseum". The dub is very likely to use "Colosseum" as they've set a precedence for that sort of thing already (no, I'm not suggesting we use that as rationale to change it back to "Colosseum").

My TF05 would be 65x131. I'm using whatever the original resolution is that I'm getting them at.

The images include the booster box art next to them (File:PickingFlowers-Booster-TF05.png, File:GenerationGap-Booster-TF05.png). Should I make all the other images like that, or should I crop them and only have the booster pack? -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 14:51, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
Including the box art might be a good idea, given how small the images are. Should we maybe use a different filename for the images that include the box? -- Deltaneos (talk) 14:57, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
I have all 60 Box and Booster images each for both (TF05 and TF06, 120 total), so I can make it so that all the TF05 and TF06 images all are the same, so a different filename may be redundant.
I'm pretty sure I can do the same for TF04 and below when I get access to them. -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 15:02, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
I have access to a copy of TF04 now (File:NaturalBornCritters-Booster-TF04.png). I'll upload the rest of TF04 and the full images for 05 and 06 tomorrow (was busy earlier, now it's late night here). -Falzar FZ- (talk page|useful stuff) 14:40, July 30, 2012 (UTC)

(File:NaturalBornCritters-Booster-TF04.png)+(File:PickingFlowers-Booster-TF05.png, File:GenerationGap-Booster-TF05.png) = 48+60+60. That's all of them.

Translation Errors

Greetings, I've reached out to you because you seem to be the admin most concerned with Japanese texts and translations.

As you've known, User:Master D is obsessed with using online translators to translate Japanese card names. Also, he has been moving many pages without official TCG card names. Often, his edits are full of mistakes. What's worse is that he is making more mistakes than I can correct him. Moreover, he is undoing my corrections.

Whenever he is confronted by me about the way the words he translated being far too literal, he refuses to admit that he is using an online translator, despite the blatant obviousness, and continues to copy translations from them. Time and time again, he fails to give an educated proof to his rebuttal in discussions about translations.

Right now, it's turning into a "one vs one" argument. I do not intend to go into an edit war with him. I request the intervention of admins and other educated users in this matter. Your opinions on the matter are greatly appreciated.  HHT   - (Talk to the Turtle) 15:03, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

We really only argued about Arcane Archer of the Forest. I say that he shouldn't be too literal about translating Kyutsukai as bow user, when it's obviously archer. Even admins have told me not to be too literal. The other argument we had is about Seven Kids, but I accepted that I was wrong about that. I don't know why he's making up stuff that we're arguing. He's clearly starting the arguments because he's angry about being confronted. MadRest 15:34, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
It is not only those 2 card articles. There's also the mistakes you've made with Nitwit Outwit, Flaming Star Emperor - Choraio, Centrifugal Field, Anteatereatingant and many, many others.

Yes, but why are you saying that I started an edit war over them? I accepted hat I was wrong and didn't argue about it. Show some proof that I argued about them before reporting me! And Centrifugation Field wasn't a wrong translation. Centrifuge and Centrifugation can be used in the same way here, by the way. MadRest 15:52, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, Mister "D", just make your own article and keep all your weirdo translation to yourself, ok? --iFredCat 15:56, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
I never wanted to report you or get you blocked or banned. I just wanted more expert opinion on the matter. Also, I said that I do not want to start an edit war with you. You did undo my edits multiple times.
Also, "Centrifugation" is the process. "Centrifuge" is a thing that performs the process. There are not synonyms.  HHT   - (Talk to the Turtle) 15:57, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Fine, but it's still not that horribly wrong from the previous translation. I meant they were similar, not synonyms, but I edited that. And the reason I'm moving pages with no TCG names is because they are wrong. MadRest 16:01, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, many translations on this site are incorrect because we don't have many people educated in Japanese here. However, you making numerous mistakes isn't making the situation any better.  HHT   - (Talk to the Turtle) 16:07, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
I don't make numerous mistakes. In the case of Anteater, I wanted to keep the Kana, because it's the same as the Syllable cards. They are supposed to be some kind of pun. And it's not bow user, it's archer. I'm not syaing it's incorrect, but even an admin has told me not to be too literal. MadRest 16:10, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, Mister "D" - I am with Turtle here in the argument - I am also uneducated in Japan, though I am easily educated in cette langue and este idioma. El día bueno, señor. --iFredCat 16:12, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
The Syllable cards retain the "Gagaga" and "Achacha" because it has no meaning in Japanese and English. It's like baby talk, trying to translate it is foolish. [オオアリクイクイアリ] does have a specific meaning in Japanese.
When Dinoguy1000 told you "not to translate too literally". What he meant was not to do what you did with Nitwit Outwit and others, separating the name into individual words and translating it 1 word by 1 word which is what most online translators do.
[魔弓使い] is translated together as a phrase into "Magical Bow Wielder". Furthermore, "A person wielding a bow." and "He is a bow wielder/wielder of bows." are correct grammar-wise.  HHT   - (Talk to the Turtle) 16:27, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

Well, amigo, the reason why I am here is to "vote" Turtle and maybe Deltaneos if he agreed for this whole argument. I am aware of what the hell is going on around here - you're the one screwing the translation around some bunch of articles and Turtle don't like that. Therefore I am not only here to vote them, but also to advice you to do one thing: Keep your stuffs to yourself. Like myself with my own Judge Rulings that don't belong to Ruling Articles, my own create cards that don't exist in this site, and ever smily that don't making any sense anyways. So now, would you heed my advice or being an asno? --iFredCat 16:20, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
I'm with Fred and Turtle, the wikia has various users, from different countries who different language. It is a bit difficult trying to find someone who actually understand/is educated in Japan. So if you don't have any proof or source, don't throw out names from online translators. Btw Fred has the right and reason to support who he wants to. It is very simple, No source/proof, no naming.--Laggia Will Lag You(Talk) 16:21, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

You don't get to vote when you're not a Japanese speaker. How the hell do you know if Turtle is right when you don't know Japanese? And no offense, but I doubt you're a judge. I saw you say on a forum post that Trigger Effects can never miss the timing. And no, just because he's a Japanese speaker doesn't mean he's always right.

Yeah, I agree that this is going off-topic. We can maybe resolve this if we focus on the problem and don't fight. So the problem is that Hide Head Turtle thinks too many of Master D's translations are disputed that it's becoming too time consuming having to correct or discuss each one, right? Is there much consistency in what you two are disagreeing on? i.e. Do you think each other are making the same type of mistakes each time? If so we could create a page similar to Project:Arabic card names guidelines for Japanese name translations (Dinoguy's suggestion, btw). Whatever rules or guidelines are put on it are a result of collaborative discussion. Anything on it should be followed and if you disagree with it, go to the policy page's talk page, rather than change translations. -- Deltaneos (talk) 20:56, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Just to clarify, my suggestion is for a policy page on Japanese translation in general, not just names specifically.
We may instead want to rename "Project:Arabic card names guidelines" to "Project:Translation" or the like and generalize it to translating between languages in general, with specific guidelines for individual languages/language pairings as necessary. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 21:58, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
I actually assumed there already was one. MadRest 23:33, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
It's scary how quickly this went-off topic. The topic I'm arguing about is that User:Master D should not be basing his Japanese to English translations on online translators.
Here are some examples of his edits:
Even he himself has admitted to using an online translator for his edits: Talk:Nitwit Outwit. To quote his statement: "Use www.tangorin.com for translating kanji. I will change it if someone doesn't offer a sound counterargument." I'm not saying that my translations are 100% correct. I've even participated in discussions about translating conventions multiple times. However, he has continued with his nonsensical translations, ignoring discussions on the Talk Page.
Dinoguy1000 said it best: "If you're using an online translator - any online translator, regardless of advertised, perceived, or actual quality - you've automatically lost the right to declare any translation "incorrect". Machine translation is still years (if not decades) away from even approaching the level of quality and accuracy needed for this type of translation work, and that's if it can happen before the creation of strong AI (which I doubt for a plethora of reasons). In absolutely any situation where I have to pick between what an online translator gives and what a person that knows Japanese gives, I will go with the person every time."
A set of established guidelines for Japanese to English translations is a good idea. However, it won't solve the fundamental problem here. The No. 1 important guideline for translations that Master D must follow is to "Never, ever rely on online translators for accurate translations.".  HHT   - (Talk to the Turtle) 06:25, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
Automatic translators are useful, but it's ridiculous to expect perfect translations from them or cite one as proof for a disputed translation.
Looking at the "Nitwit Outwit" talk page, Master D doesn't seem to understand that compounds can have a different meaning than the individual kanji. "" = "strange", "奇策 = "clever scheme". Other editors have caused problems by translating names one kanji at a time before.
Per the "essay" above (may end up on a separate archive than this), a non-English word in katakana doesn't necessarily make it exempt from translating.
Do you accept these three points, Master D? If we follow these, that should hopefully lessen the disagreements. -- Deltaneos (talk) 09:09, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
That was before I learned how to use the general translations. That's why Nitwit Outwit's was so literal. My translator also gives the translation as clever schemes. And for most of those examples, I didn't use a translator. A baku is a Japanese supernatural-being. Even Wikipedia has an article about it. And I mostly edit those translations which are wrong. Abyss doesn't have a special meaning. It is part of the Yomi/Abyss archetype. For the rest, I wanted to keep the original kana, but now they look just stupid, so I guess they can be translated as frog. And I don't know how I am causing a problem, when none of those translations would've been fixed if I hadn't changed them. Also, my translator didn't give Alive Return as a translation. It gave returning alive, but I didn't have a better way to phrase it for the time being. In fact, for those examples, only Nitwit Outwit was from a translator, and guess what: It also gives the translation as Clever Schemes. And based on results, I'm guessing my translator is 85% of times correct, since I've done way more translations and no one's complaining about those. You just think since I'm using a translator, when a confronting opinion comes up, I will always be in the wrong. Also, what point are you talking about? I will edit translations that are wrong, and if you want them changed, then come up with a valid reason! I mean, I didn't complain when Turtle said Choraio, Anteater and Seven Kids were wrong.

The reason I told you not to respond on this post is because you're annoying. You never once responded to what I posted; you just keep saying my translations are wrong. Even now, you don't offer a counterargument to what I said; you just say that ALL of my translations are wrong because I use a translator, even though you don't know Japanese or English. Unless you want to say something that is related to my previous post, don't enter this discussion at all! This is the last time I'm responding to you. MadRest 14:08, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
Let's not make another fight out of this. If we can be patient and polite, we might sort this out. FredCat, I know you mean well, but it's not nice to keep degrading other people's work, particularly when you don't understand it. They are trying to help too. Master D, yes his Japanese credentials aren't much and he's not adding adequately responding to your new points, but maybe we should try not make something personal of this. We don't want to stray into another off-topic fight. If you don't want to reply to him any further, okay. I guess it's one way of sorting that problem, for now.
For "Desertapir", you are okay with the current translation, "Sand Tapir", right?
Archetype consistency seems as good a reason as any to choose one translation over another, but correct me if I'm wrong, would it not be better to list "Yomi" as the translated name for all the "Yomi"/"Abyss" cards, rather than "Abyss"? Yomi (黄泉 (よみ) ) is the Japanese word for the land of the dead. "Abyss" seems to be the same concept, but from other faiths.
You say you're willing to admit a translation is wrong if someone manages to prove it's wrong. That's fine. If you can prove other people's translations are wrong too, that's also fine. I think the problem is in the occurrence rate for these disputes. You and HHT could probably discuss each translation and come to an agreement on each one, but it's not something either of you want to spend most of your free time doing. If we can find some commonality in where wrong translations, whoever they're from, we might be able to reduce their occurrences. Do you think there's any repeating mistakes that HHT keeps making? When did you start using the "general translations" option? It sounds like a step in the right direction. Have there been as many disputed translations since you started using it?
I know you say that the majority of your translations are right and most of the stuff you change was definitely wrong beforehand. I haven't checked myself. I'm guessing HHT will have something to say about this. HHT: While you think he is making a lot of mistranslations, do you think he is making a share of correct changes to existing translations? -- Deltaneos (talk) 15:52, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
I started using it 2-3 months ago. And the Toonzaki subs, if you can count them as official, translate them as Abyss. MadRest 16:01, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
Don't the Toonzaki subs use dub names? Dub names aren't always a direct translation. e.g. they changed "Wicked King" to "Ruler" for "Abyss Ruler Mictlancoatl". -- Deltaneos (talk) 18:45, July 24, 2012 (UTC)

[Reset indent]

Yes, except in cases where there is no dub name. The Crimson Devil episodes were never dubbed, so the Toonzaki subs are as close to official English names as we'll get in such cases. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 19:08, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
I have approved and defended his edits before, e.g. Talk:Magic-Power-Induced Explosion. Let me be clear on this: I don't choose sides. I only favour good edits.
As said before, Yomi (黄泉 (よみ) ) is a special name for a special place. It is more akin to the words "Hades" and "Hell". Translating it as "Abyss" causes that special meaning to be lost. I'm not convinced that Toonzaki subs are "reliable enough". They have never intended to translate the Japanese names as consistently as possible. Toonzaki, 4Kids and Konami (TCG) are all subject to censorship laws so many of their English translations are heavily altered to prevent mentions about death, violence, etc.
As for his "general translations" method, whatever that is; it has not gotten any better. Here is one of his recent translations: From Gaia Soul the Combustible Collective, [爆炎集合体ガイヤ・ソウル] ---> "Aggregation of Explosive Flames - Gaia Soul". There is so much wrong with this. 1st, "Aggregation" is the process, "Aggregate" is the noun. 2nd, [集合体] should be translated as "Assembly" as in [燃料集合体] [3] (Fuel Assembly). 3rd, [爆炎] is a very difficult word to translate, literally it means "Bursting/Exploding Flames", though together as a phrase it means something along the lines of "Combustible"/"Explosive"/"Inflammable".
I think there is a fallacy in your statement: "And based on results, I'm guessing my translator is 85% of times correct, since I've done way more translations and no one's complaining about those.". 1st, you don't understand any Japanese at all, how would you know when the translations you are getting from it is right or wrong? 2nd, 85% is not good enough. 3rd, I've been fixing many of your edits. 4th, plenty of users have been complaining about your edits.
To address your next statement: "You just think since I'm using a translator, when a confronting opinion comes up, I will always be in the wrong.", I don't think that you are always wrong. I just think that since you are relying heavily on online translators, you are not a certified translator, meaning you have never earned the right to declare other people's translations as being right or wrong. Also, you have never given intellectual and educated rebuttals in our discussions which further affirms the above remark.
Lastly, this is all said with no offence to you or your being. You are very passionate about your edits as do most users here. However, please be open to criticism from other users. Under any sort of circumstance, there is no need to be emotional on the internet.  HHT   - (Talk to the Turtle) 06:24, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
You're wrong about Gaia Soul. Check this: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/aggregation You can see that an aggregation is a collection of parts, not just the process, therefore it is correct. Bakuen means explosive flame. I didn't even need a translator for that. No matter if it's used in different ways, it can't get any clearer. You just want to translate too literally. That's why you translate Kyutsukai as Bow User. That is the correct translation, but you even said to me that I translated Nitwit Outwit just by looking at the kanji, and this is what you're doing now. It is Archer, no matter how you look at it. The only way to wield bows is through the use of archery. MadRest 13:20, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not saying that your Gaia Soul translation is wrong; it's just there are more ways to translate it, and my translation isn't incorrect, just because there are different synonyms to it. You offer synonyms to my words, and expect people to believe it's the translator's fault for not offering those exact synonyms. MadRest 13:23, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Also, Naraku is translated as Hell. Shouldn't it just be Naraku? As for Yomi, since it's the closest official English source, we must go with that. I mean, we follow the English video games and their translations, don't we? MadRest 13:30, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Video games and Toonzaki are legitimate sources for official English names. As we all know, official English names aren't always translations of the Japanese name. They didn't use an exact translation when they changed "Jaō" (Wicked King) to "Ruler", so they didn't necessarily use an exact translation when they changed "Yomi" to "Abyss" in the same name. -- Deltaneos (talk) 13:42, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, if it's a concept similar to Hell, rather than the Japanese word for Hell, I personally think "Sun of Naraku" would be a more suitable translation than "Sun of Hell". -- Deltaneos (talk) 13:58, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, Maddy Rest... shut up and accept it! --iFredCat 13:35, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
I'm failing to understand your logic here, Master D. HHT: [爆炎] ---> "Combustible" is too literal??? Master D: [爆炎] ---> "Explosive Flames" is ok??? Do you understand the meaning of the word "literal"? Fine, I've changed [弓使い] to "Archer" since you always ignore my other points. As for Gaia Soul, "Aggregation" and "Assembly" do have similar meaning. However, that doesn't mean you can use them interchangeably. As I've shown, the name is paralleling the word [燃料集合体] [4] which is called "Fuel Assembly" in English. If you told an Engineer that you call that thing a "Fuel Aggregation", he would look at you funny. This is why I emphasizes the inclusion of context in translations so much. Words in English that have similar meaning don't usually have the same usage. Which words to use is always governed by context.
Another example of your blatant ignorance for context, "Naraku" is the name for "Hell" in Japanese Buddhism while "Yomi" is the land of the dead which is often portrayed in Japanese Mythology and the "Shinto" Religion. Using them interchangeably is absolutely incorrect. Also, telling a Japanese person that "Yomi" is some sort of "Abyss" will garner the same reaction from telling a Greek person that "Hades" and the "Elysian Fields" are just some sort of "Abyss".
Yes, we do obtain English names from video games, Toonzaki Subs, 4Kids and Konami(TCG). However, that doesn't mean we should obtain translations from them as well. The word "Abyss" is used in the Toonzaki Subs but it shouldn't be in the "trans" section. Remember that is was Master D who added that word "Abyss" into the "trans" section of the Treeborn Frog article.
Lastly, the edits by Master D have been getting worse. Example from Silver Sentinel: [白銀のスナイパー] ---> "Silvery Snow Sniper"??? "Snow"? What "Snow"? Yes, there is snow is the card's artwork but nowhere is it mentioned in the card's name. Also, the translation was fine before you decided to mess with it. If you have no clue what you are doing, then I suggest you take some time to reconsider your edits.  HHT   - (Talk to the Turtle) 07:45, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
Silvery Snow Sniper was its previous name. I didn't translate it. I just added it in the trans parameter. And it doesn't mean White Silver. It means either Silver or Snow. This time, you seem to be translating too literally. The previous translator, I'm guessing, translated it as both. I have no qualms about the trans parameter about Yomi. I agree that the translated should be Yomi. I was just talking about the English name. And I fail to find how bakuen means combustible, when kanen means inflammable, combustible, burnable, not bakuen. MadRest 12:50, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
Now, you're just being foolish. [白銀] (hakugin) means "White Silver" or "Silvery White". It's not a matter of "translating literally", it means nothing else. Also, there is no mention of "Snow" in the name. What the heck are you talking about? [可燃] means "Can be ignited" or "Inflammable". [爆炎] means something along the lines of "about to burst into flames" or "Inflammable" or "Combustible". Again, mean almost the same thing but cannot be used interchangeably.  HHT   - (Talk to the Turtle) 16:04, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Block log

I just had a look through the block log after blocking an IP. I noticed that that are multiple cases in the early years of the wiki where IPs were blocked indefinitely (and thus are still blocked to this day). Isn't this generally frowned upon (or even against general Wikia policy)? And if we are permitted to permanently block IPs, then I have a few I'd like to block myself.

Fred, you're missing the point. Any admin can block anyone. I just blocked two IPs in the last twenty-four hours.

There are some very limited circumstances where indef-blocking an IP is okay (the English Wikipedia, for instance, indef-blocks known proxies and TOR exit nodes), but generally it's a bad idea.

LC3 Token

Hey Deltaneos, I just wanted to explain why I made my edit. I know that they're all printed as "Token" but most people, and the wikia itself refer to them by the monster on the card. So I thought calling the tokens the Kuriboh token and the Emmisary of Darkness token was sufficient. Besides, isn't saying "with "Kuriboh Token" illustrations" also doing the same thing, saying that they're actually named that? The problem I have with that is shouldn't it be more like "with Kuriboh illustrations/art.

How about something like:

The first part tells them they're named "Token". The second part allows people to still see the artwork, but doesn't name them "Kuriboh Token". - 魔法師 MoFaatSi (talk • contribs) (talkcontribs) 07:06, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

'Have been trying to move the wiki away from referring to them that way; Talk:Token. By 'with "Kuriboh Token" illustrations', I just meant with "Kuriboh Token" in their artworks, but you're suggested reword is fine. It's closer to how Konami have worded it. -- Deltaneos (talk) 16:54, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
Okay I see, I see. It's just hard to refer to a certain token without doing that, regardless of whether or not the card is actually named that. I'll refrain from doing that from now on. So I'll use the above reword then. - 魔法師 MoFaatSi (talk • contribs) (talkcontribs) 22:46, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Hieratic being vandalism...

This user didn't listening to Sponge's warning repeat so can you please lock that article to User only? --iFredCat 19:56, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Again, he didn't paying any attention to his Talk Page and just vandalism-ing the article continuous... All we had to do is to lock up the article and be done with it. Kindly like my "Buddy List" article a while ago. --iFredCat 20:05, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
It's getting out of hand - time to lock up the article and be done. --iFredCat 20:10, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
Seriously! Go do your Admin Godly Power on that user. --iFredCat 20:12, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
I am not against you - I am supporting you, I only want that User to stop vandalism-ing the article - that's all. --iFredCat 20:13, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your kindly offering, Co-Founder... I mean, Sub-Founder. --iFredCat 20:23, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Jump Festa 1999/2000

yes, i am sure, i don't know why some sites call it JF 99... maybe just because it was released in that year. here it is ****. this is an official poster of the event, it reports date, year and event name. /////||||||\\\\\ Jump Enemy (talkcontribs) 15:48, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

User Page

  • Hey Delta. I know you're good with this stuff, so I thought I'd ask you. Is there a better template I can use on my userpage to spruce up the Deck(s) column on the side? I think it looks a little ugly ATM, and I've only used it for so long because it was the only one I knew how to use. Do you know of one that lets me customize more, like colours and naming each parameter (rather than being stuck with, for example, Tag Force 4), etc.? Thanks in advance.--YamiWheeler (talkcontribs) 10:00, July 31, 2012 (UTC)
  • Template:Infobox should let you do whatever you want in terms of colours and giving names to sections. It might be hard to figure it out if you haven't used anything like it before, but the examples section should be able to help get you started. The things like background:#ccf; in those examples are what's determining the colours. You can replace them for example with something like background:red; color:white; to change the associated background to red and text to white. If you know CSS, you can alter its appearance in pretty much any way you want, so if there is any particular customisations you'd like to give it, just let me know. -- Deltaneos (talk) 12:23, July 31, 2012 (UTC)
  • The design looks fine. It just seems a bit strange to me that it's only got one row other than the header. -- Deltaneos (talk) 17:32, July 31, 2012 (UTC)
  • Yeah, I don't really know what else to put in there. I'll play around with it more some other time. Thanks for the help, though.--YamiWheeler (talkcontribs) 17:35, July 31, 2012 (UTC)

Card chants

Oh you made it back the way it was? >.> Oh well. It took a long time to go through it all you know. I was just bored and cruising on the forums and that thread took ages to load, so I just thought 'hey why not tidy it up a bit' and I tried to delete only the ones without signatures so that I wouldn't offend anybody. I might have accidentally removed a few though.
