Welcome

Hi and welcome to the Yu-Gi-Oh! wiki! Thank you for your edit to the File:UrgentTuning-DP08-EN-R-UE.png page.

If you need help, you can consult these pages:

If you would like to make a suggestion or ask for assistance, feel free start a topic at the forums or contact an administrator.


Uploads

Thanks for your recent uploads. One thing to remember is that where possible, crop out any extra space around the card (if there's a bit around the edges because of the card's orientation that's okay). Your image of Speed Warrior has too much blank space around the edges. --MasterMarik (talkcontribs) 21:10, April 5, 2018 (UTC)


Copying information straight from YugiPedia

When you copy information from the YugiPedia, like in you massive edit to the 2018 page be sure to attribute the edit to them.

https://yugioh.wikia.com/index.php?title=2018&diff=3984830&oldid=3984720

You copied their entries and more importantly sources without making a single change. So you are copying articles written by someone and not just public information available for copy by anyone.

I undid your edit, because most of the work copied was done by me over there. You can always go there and copy the entries (as that is public information), but not the sources; unless you go to each and verify they are correct and link them yourself. It was pretty obvious spotting your copy-paste edit, because no one else adds Korean text to their sources other than me. So at least have the decency of doing the work yourself or don't add sources and just put YugiPedia.com as a single source.

--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 15:00, September 6, 2018 (UTC)-

Thanks for understanding. I mean the entries themselves are public, we copied them from the sources, so you can always copy them from us. And since the syntax is the same there could never be a "Oh you copied them from us"; which could apply both ways. But the sources are important, and in that case YugiPedia was the source... of the sources. We left the Wikia not because we wanted it to fail, it was the best thing to happen to the game and the staff was always helpful. But then the video-mania started and the Admins were tired of dealing with bureaucracy. The Wikia was managed from way up, so even if the Yugi branch did wanted to help and comply with the main Admins, they have to comply with their higher-ups. So we left. It hasn't been a smooth transition, we (mainly the know-how guys) have to deal with daily issues with the server and pages. But progress has been made. But the most important aspect; the Yu-gi-oh! information is constantly flowing there (and one of the reasons sometimes the server overloads; because of the massive amounts of uploads made). Because we who left, were usually the ones doing so here; anyone can contribute here and there, but as always there is a smaller percentage that takes that to heart, and if you take them away things will go pretty slow until a new group incorporates. But sometimes it doesn't. The clearest example is the Pokemon Wikia, nowadays is pretty slow but keeps it up; but compared to the BulbaPedia is child's play. And BPd originated from a fork just like YPd did.

Again?--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 10:19, October 2, 2018 (UTC)

Look, you can do that, but at least remove the individual sources. The entries are fine to copy, but you are simply dragging-select and copy-past.--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 10:21, October 2, 2018 (UTC)

Paste the same information you did, and then go entry by entry and simply delete the ref parts. That and with the credit to YugiPedia should be fine enough.--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 10:36, October 2, 2018 (UTC)

Look, I was a bit hasty when I undid your edit; that is why I re-did it. Because I saw you credited YugiPedia. So I think it is fine to leave it as it is now. The references are what bother me a bit, but again, you can leave them just like that. It is public information. But you could modify them to be at least a bit different. Maybe not deleting them, but simply removing the extra text after the proper URL. That way they'd remain neutral and 100% open. But it is up to you. To remove that bit just look at each entry and at the end between the "ref" bits are the URL and then a colon of text, that colon you could modify or delete; this way the URL will remain to back up the information and as I say it will be 100% open and neautral. Have a nice day.--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 17:05, October 2, 2018 (UTC)

The Main Page can only be edited by Admins and higher ups, so it is up to them, you could request them to modify it; but I don't know what Admins remain active here.--Erdvilla (talkcontribs) 17:08, October 2, 2018 (UTC)

New Leadership

Hello there. I suggest you visit Forum:New Leadership to discuss what's next for the wikia. 0123456789 The Great (talkcontribs) 03:39, November 9, 2018 (UTC)

Re:Allusion Forum

AFAIK (I am just a new guy here), the previous admins moved the forum to its crrent place from the mainspace due to it being "fan speculation" (which iis while obvious, fan). So I think it can remain in the forum as the sticky thread.

Also, I am not a good writer nor a dedicated anime watcher, so I dont think I can help in adding stuff to the forum. 0123456789 The Great 03:12, December 28, 2018 (UTC)

Plagiarism

I've got a report that you have been copying pages from the other site. At least try rewording pages, rather than plagiarizing them. Don't make this mistake again. Energy X 16:33, January 4, 2019 (UTC)

Reply

I don't think it is noteworthy to write out 5D's series and before, because the details mimicking past series has been featured prominently in ZEXAL series and after. Energy X 18:56, January 10, 2019 (UTC)

Card lores

If you have the time, can you review these articles, some of which may need lores? Energy X 19:54, February 7, 2019 (UTC)

Well, I don't think a lot of people know to read Japanese texts. You did your best, I guess. Energy X 22:32, February 7, 2019 (UTC)

Yugipedia

(Normally I'd post this under the "Copying information straight from YugiPedia" header, but I want to make sure you see this.)
Arcadias, regardless of anything any Yugipedia editor has said to you before, you are not allowed to copy Yugipedia content. The reason is because we are using CC-BY-SA 4.0, and Fandom is using CC-BY-SA 3.0, a license that is incompatible with ours. Even if the licenses were compatible, I'd prefer if you stop copying Yugipedia content anyway, as I don't like seeing our editors' hard work being effortlessly copied.
This is a preliminary warning, so please stop copying. If you don't, then actual measures will be taken. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 05:11, March 18, 2019 (UTC)

Repeating the above warning for copying the content from Yugipedia for the Blue Angel vs Baira Duel page. The entire page has been copied byte-for-byte, including the content that I added to our page a few days ago. What's more, as all you have to do is copy the content from your episode pages, it was a real exercise in laziness. Do not copy our content again please, as we will have to report this to staff if it doesn't stop. It's actually a legal issue, not a politeness or courtesy one, which is why I'm reiterating this.

Sanokal K-T (talkcontribs) 02:52, May 13, 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, don't do that. Since you have been warned before, the next time this happens, a block will be initiated. Just to keep things fair. Energy X 11:40, May 13, 2019 (UTC)

Ah, well, it was bound to be competitive like that. Since they have split, it is rather obvious that they'd have to resort to plans to gain user views. Nothing wrong about that, as long as it is fair. I also run another wiki, which is overshadowed by a bigger one. Then I realized it is very hard to simply gain user views, and simply decided that the goal is to have more information - areas in which the other site lacks. As one famous comedian in my country said, if someone doesn't have the thing in his brains, they have it in their provocations.

I'm not a lawyer, but an engineer, so I am still uncertain about that licensing. Though I still remind that we should aim not to copy others' content. Perhaps the only time it is, well, justified, is things like card texts; it has to be written out just like it is read from the card, so that piece of content should the same on both sites. Anything else can be considered as plagiarism, mostly. Energy X 22:04, March 27, 2019 (UTC)

As long as I get to keep World Legacy lore up to date I don't care what yugipedia does. Pitifulheartles (talkcontribs) 12:59, April 1, 2019 (UTC)
It's OK, just please follow the rules. It's not beneficial if you get blocked, but neither is disrespecting the rules. Energy X 14:42, May 15, 2019 (UTC)
You can only screw the rules if you have money or are Kaiba. Pitifulheartles (talkcontribs) 14:52, May 15, 2019 (UTC)

CardTable2

Hi, in reference to your edit here, the reason the page doesn't display with your edit is likely because of your use of the {{Ruby}} template in the Japanese lore section. When the template is used, certain kana characters seem to overload {{CardTable2}} in such a way that it causes it not to display at all. We are working on a fix for this, but the template is incredibly complex, so it will take some time.

For now, you can make your edit, just put the entire Japanese section to the right of the equals sign in an HTML comment <!-- {{Ruby|blah}} -->. Please continue to include the necessary Ruby annotations where they are missing; they are useful and should always be used where they appear on cards. Commenting them out is a temporary fix, and we will run a bot to remove the comment tags once the infobox is fixed. Please let me know if you have any questions! Thanks. :) —Atvelonis (talkcontribs) 19:44, June 17, 2019 (UTC)

Interesting. I just tried re-adding the ja_lore content without the HTML comment and it doesn't seem to have overloaded the template. I gave it another look, and it turns out that it's actually the jp_sets parameter that's problematic. So perhaps try restoring your edit, and comment out that instead.
As for your report about the infobox coloration: {{CardTable2}} is fully protected, so only content moderators or above can edit it. The reason it's appearing yellow is because the template defines the default color value as FF3 (Ctrl+F == Table start == in the code). Do you know what color the header is supposed to be for Skill Cards? I don't know if this is based off the game or decided arbitrarily by the community.
I can look into the other issues you brought up as well, although we might not get to anything immediately. The code is terribly out-of-date; it's not at all portable to mobile devices, and is a complete mess in general. Staff have a consultant writing a report about it right now, so it'll be redone entirely soon, at which point it will be much easier for us to edit. —Atvelonis (talkcontribs) 18:36, June 18, 2019 (UTC)
Well, we certainly appreciate your resolution toward the wiki! It's always nice to have people stick around through the years—more than a few communities lack the institutional memory needed to really keep themselves rolling. You're quite welcome to join the wiki's Discord server as well, which should help to coordinate editing projects.
I think your color solution is pretty reasonable (though there are plenty of online tools that do this for free; no need for Photoshop!). When we redo {{CardTable2}} we might offload some of the coloration to CSS pages, or otherwise simplify that whole aspect of it (not sure yet), but regardless of how the code looks in the end I'll make sure that the colors aren't overlooked. —Atvelonis (talkcontribs) 21:02, June 22, 2019 (UTC)
Discord is a chat service, yes. It's usually marketed toward gamers but can be used for any purpose. It looks like this and is a great way to communicate with other editors; easier than talk pages for sure.
I operate a bot site-wide that can handle maintenance on the wikis I'm looking after, although I don't think I quite understand how I would automate the process you're describing. I get the general idea, but where is this information stored to begin with? How would a script know which passcodes to assign where? —Atvelonis (talkcontribs) 23:32, June 25, 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I meant. I understand the page structure that the redirects use, but I was (and am) unclear about how a bot would be able to take a look at a passcode redlink like "97688360" and then apply the correct card name "Gouki Twistcobra" within the link brackets in an automatic fashion. My bot mostly runs off AutoWikiBrowser and is not particularly intelligent; it needs fairly specific instructions to do much of anything. If there were a page listing out each card and its corresponding passcode, that would probably be sufficient, because then it would know how each seemingly random number is connected to each seemingly random card name.
Alternatively, if given a list of cards whose corresponding passcodes need to be created, I could maybe write a Python script to somehow look at a given article, store the card name as a variable or something, open up the passcode link (if it's linked on that page, like it is on Gouki Twistcobra), and then insert the redirect code with the appropriate card name. However, the specifics of that would take me quite some time fiddling around with the MediaWiki API to figure anything out. :P
How many redirects do you still have to create? If there aren't that many, it would probably be more efficient to just finish them by hand, because it would take me a while to finish up my existing bot tasks anyway. If you have a list of them somewhere, or another way for me to know which redirects to create, then I could handle it manually; if your specialty is content, then it would be better for you to focus on that. —Atvelonis (talkcontribs) 17:31, June 27, 2019 (UTC)
Interesting. I imagine that Beca's solution made use of the redirect lists on pages like this. It would be easy for AWB to generate a list of pages that need to be created with the links on page (only redlinks) setting. I could then at the very least have it automatically insert the generic code for a redirect (probably not hard), and manually add the redirect destinations, thereby making the entire process semi-automatic, which is better than nothing. I'll see if I can get that done soon. —Atvelonis (talkcontribs) 00:37, June 28, 2019 (UTC)
The release statuses are a possibility, though as you say it would take a certain amount of extra scrutiny, and I'm not sure we have the manpower for it. Perhaps bring it up to Energy X, as he's more involved in the policy/style side of things than I am. —Atvelonis (talkcontribs) 18:07, June 28, 2019 (UTC)

Link

You do know we don't need so many links, right? It just looks too much. Energy X 21:25, June 18, 2019 (UTC)

Copying

While you are showing progress by attributing credit to the other site, I still need to block you, at least for a day. It is just that certain content (like sentences) shouldn't be copied; you need to write it in your own words. It would also be wise not to copy the entire page, too, but to simply change it. Same goes for images.

In other words, if there is something you can write or post in different ways from the other site, then do that. Energy X 20:24, July 15, 2019 (UTC)

As said, you are learning. Just don't copy evertything word to word
As for their extensions, we have noticed that. You can join the Discussion on that in Discord. Energy X 08:44, July 19, 2019 (UTC)

i understand that it looks like "nasary" is kanna due to the color scheme, but i feel it more or so fits lucoa cause "nasary" is kinda posed on the fan-servicey side and lucoa is also more or less taking care of shouta whenever his dad is at work. kanna i feel is more like the "laudry" cause "laudry" seems to be younger in comparison to everyone else and the dragon form seems similar to kanna's seeing as how they appear fluffier than the other's dragon forms and the laudry dragon form had it's hairs tied like kanna
