Welcome to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia, feel free to ask me if you have doubts. You may also like to take a look to our FAQ if you have questions. --Dragon Slayer (Contribs Count) 04:35, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Articles Merge

Do not worry about that, I got Falzar or someone who noticed that to cover it up for your trouble. I had learn of "Merge" when there was warring on "Dark Magicians" article with other article simple to it and brought it up to here. So I hope it helped your request better. --FredCat 01:53, July 23, 2011 (UTC)

It appeared that Dinoguy1000 (talk contribs) got it covering, so your request is now completed. :-3 --FredCat 02:16, July 23, 2011 (UTC)


Please remember to add the card number and set number categories when you make the respective redirects. Thank you. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 20:33, January 3, 2014 (UTC)

Luca, again, remember to add the categories. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 12:38, January 23, 2014 (UTC)

Image Uploading

Please upload your image as .png, as .jpgs will be deleted in favor of .png files. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 06:40, January 24, 2014 (UTC)

Dragons of Legend

Can I have the link for where you're getting the DOL info, please? Much appreciated, Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 06:41, February 18, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, the info is from pictures on this poster at (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 07:03, February 18, 2014 (UTC))
Ah, cool. Thanks. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 07:04, February 18, 2014 (UTC)
Yes, well, I hope I've been useful to the wiki. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 07:07, February 18, 2014 (UTC))
Of course you have. There's a reason I asked you the source instead of reverting - I've seen you editing around the wiki and know it would be unlikely you were adding false stuff. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 07:09, February 18, 2014 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. Just glad to help. Hope my translation of Number 23: Spirit Knight of the Underworld is accurate. My Japanese is rather rough, but I needed somewhere to put the picture. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 07:11, February 18, 2014 (UTC))

((Card table set))

Hey, I've noticed that you've been adding in {{Card table set}} to cards that are in Star Pack 2014. However, you've been messing up a little. When you input {{Card table set/header|XX}} for the Spanish, Japanese and Korean set products, you need to put in "es", "ja" and "ko" respectively, otherwise they get messed up. The reason is that those are the correct language abbreviations according to the ISO 639-2 Language Code List. I've fixed "Odin" already, but when you have the time, please fix the other cards. Thanks. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 17:49, February 21, 2014 (UTC)

Repeating myself again, you just did it for "Tanngnjostr of the Nordic Beasts". Check the history to see how you should do it, looking at my edit. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 15:59, February 25, 2014 (UTC)

Why edit the eye of timeus and dark magician the dragon knight?

Anzu-chan4ever (talkcontribs) 07:07, March 3, 2014 (UTC)

Editing "Numbers Page"

Mate, wouldn't be best to keep it as "Legendary Numbers" Rather than the English version name? It is quite an annoyance. So I hope you reconsider and stop editing it into English version names. (I am not saying that you are wrong. I am saying "Let's just keep it original"). Ultimate Yggdrasil 11:11, March 7, 2014 (UTC)

Imagine Breaker / Phantom World Breakthrough

Please refrain from adding your own translated names/effects for newly spoiled cards. It just adds to more misinformation, as the last effect you gave was completely incorrect. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 18:30, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

Mover rights

Hi Lucafriz. I've given you mover rights, as I believe you can make use of them. hen moving card sub-pages (such as galleries and trivia pages), you can now suppress the redirects. If you move images, please suppress those redirects as well. Let me know if you need any help with anything. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 01:46, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

Don Thousand

Can you plz tell me what are those Don Thousand's cards? And those weird attributes?
LionHeartKIng (talkcontribs) 09:34, May 25, 2014 (UTC)

Card Errata pages

You should be doing this instead. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 16:30, October 27, 2014 (UTC)

Page moves

Please be careful not to suppress the redirect when moving the main card pages. I know it starts to become a habit when doing multiple page moves, I've accidentally done it myself in the past. Just try to be aware of it. Thank you for doing so many page moves, BTW. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 17:11, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

Well, no problem. Admittedly, yes, I did suppress the redirects due to habit. I'll keep that in mind for next time. Is not suppressing the redirect for moving the main card pages meant to benefit anyone who searches for the card using the OCG name? (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 17:15, October 31, 2014 (UTC))
Exactly. In addition, its important before the links are updated everywhere else, but they should be retained afterwards as well. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 17:21, October 31, 2014 (UTC)
Alright then. I was wondering if you could move the "Subspace Wyrmhole" page to "Celestia", the official TCG name as seen here: I can't move the page myself since "Celestia" already exists as a redirect to "Celestia, Lightsworn Angel". Thanks. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 17:24, October 31, 2014 (UTC))
Sure, I'll get it. Thanks for letting me know. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 17:26, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

V Jump promo galleries

I'm not sure what you're doing in VisualEditor to cause this, but could you please stop putting <nowiki> tags around {{Card name}}? It prevents the Japanese name from displaying. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 01:28, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Strange, those tags weren't there when I created the articles in Visual Editor. I edited the latest page I created and only saw them there, so I manually deleted them. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 01:42, December 19, 2014 (UTC))


You realize the poll page specifically says "names subject to change", right? We probably shouldn't be moving these. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 04:00, January 22, 2015 (UTC)

Huh, no I didn't see that. I thought it was ok to move them since people have done it in the past for past Shonen Jump polls. Also, cards like Number S39: Utopia Prime were moved to the name given by the poll, even though that card didn't win the poll and hasn't yet been printed. So, should names like Utopia Prime be retained in that sense, since if it's "subject to change", it might be changed when printed in the TCG. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 04:03, January 22, 2015 (UTC))

Reo = Professor

From the way you said it, it sounded like it was a fact. But can you answer this? --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 03:11, January 27, 2015 (UTC)


Hey Lucafriz, the Igknight monsters were created under the name "Ignite" a couple hours or so ago; see List of "Ignite" cards. Could you redirect one set of pages to the other (I don't know which would be the "preferred" name)? Thanks! ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 09:30, March 5, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I had no idea at all that the pages were already created under "Ignite" when I created the "Igknight" pages. I took the names from ygorganization, so I'm guessing that the other ones are wrong. I assume that "Igknight" is the correct name, since they are apparently a sub-archetype of the "Knight" archetype. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 09:32, March 5, 2015 (UTC))
Don't worry about it, and that's sound enough reasoning for me. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 09:35, March 5, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I apologize for any inconvenience caused, since I entered the card names as "Igknight" under "Create an article" and no articles were there under that name, so I thought the wiki didn't yet have pages. Since you are an admin, I suppose you could do the actual pagemoves? I can do stuff like move the images. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 09:39, March 5, 2015 (UTC))
I don't think any moves are needed (though correct me if I'm wrong here); just redirecting the "Ignite" pages to the "Igknight" ones. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 10:03, March 5, 2015 (UTC)
I'm not 100% sure what the policy is, but I know some other admins like UltimateKuriboh prefer to have as little redirects as possible, and so they delete "unnecessary" ones. But I'd figure you're more in the know about this wiki's policy than I am. I guess I can redirect the "ignite" pages to the "Igknight" ones and maybe another admin can do a more through clean-up if needed. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 10:07, March 5, 2015 (UTC))
Well i created those pages with the initial translation of "ygorganization" which was "Ignite" (now changed to "Igknight"). Plus i did put up the links on the CORE listings. So, a simple "Renaming" would have worked. Now we have to get someone to delete either of the articles. Would be better to inform about this to a Admins or someone who can delete articles.--Supratim1986 (talkcontribs) 10:09, March 5, 2015 (UTC)
Well, Dinoguy is an admin and can do it. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 10:12, March 5, 2015 (UTC))
I think it would be better to delete the ones i created (since the ones u created already have most of it properly linked). But before that we have to move some info from it, like the Japanese text.--Supratim1986 (talkcontribs) 10:14, March 5, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, alright, that works. Sorry, I had no clue you already created pages, otherwise, I would have simply moved them instead. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 10:16, March 5, 2015 (UTC))
(outdent) Again, I don't believe any deletions are necessary here. I'm aware of Ult's views on redirects, as well as the underlying reasons for them (the main one being that redirects appear in the autocomplete dropdown in the search box, which can complicate navigation if you use that as a primary means of getting around the wiki and finding stuff), and if he wants to go ahead and delete these redirects I won't complain, but I don't see any reason to do so myself. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 22:23, March 5, 2015 (UTC)
Well, you're the admin, and if that's your view on the matter, than in my opinion, that's all there is to it and I have nothing more to add. I would leave any final says on such things to the admins anyway. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 23:53, March 5, 2015 (UTC))

German dub

UltimateKuriboh warned me twice about this. Don't rename character/place pages until the English dub of ARC-V officially airs, or if the dubbing network or voice actors reveal the official English names. ChaosGallade (talkcontribs) 17:38, March 14, 2015 (UTC)

As quoted by NeoArkadia (in a chat), "Germany works under same source as English dub it looks for the art edits... Main characters should remain the same between German version and English version... Usually the German dub sticks with the 4Kids dub as due to contractual issues." Unfortunately, he forgot that the title of the article was ambiguous, and due to his opinions, didn't bother specifying that this has only been confirmed for the German dub (which you could only see in the source he cited). Please be careful and check the source to make sure it is actually confirmation for the English dub. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 17:46, March 14, 2015 (UTC)

Page moves

Please treat the anime subpages as "main" pages, meaning try not to suppress the redirects (once again, I have done it myself, it happens), but just a reminder. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 03:33, October 3, 2015 (UTC)

hi!. is nishibach, karakuki an effect card?

Calmwinds07 (talkcontribs) 02:13, November 11, 2015 (UTC) calmwinds sorry!!!

Treated as Normal Monster

What did you mean by this edit? --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 03:26, November 29, 2015 (UTC)

{{Card table set}}

For {{Card table set}} in Korean languages, please use |kr instead of |ko. If you see any instances where |ko is being used instead, it'd be appreciated if you could change them. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 19:54, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

YGO Grammar

Regarding your edit, please refer to the "Rescue Cat" example at Yu-Gi-Oh!:Manual of style#Apostrophes for proper apostrophe usage when it comes to card names. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 09:33, December 23, 2015 (UTC)

Updating property pages

When you update property pages, make sure that for Anime/Manga you use [[Card type::Monster Card]], rather than the [[Card category::Monster Card]] you use for TCG/OCG monsters. Otherwise, the query will not return any results. --SnorlaxMonster 08:58, January 1, 2016 (UTC)

Your newest category

Could you please stop adding them to pages? We have no idea what the definition of "procedure" is... you're only deriving it from the text of "Void Expansion", which applies to monsters that cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Check Card Rulings:Vampire Grace; there is a difference in how these Summons are treated. And we don't know if the term "procedure" describes both types of Summons (treated as an effect, or not treated as an effect). —This unsigned comment was made by UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 17:15, February 27, 2016 (UTC)

I intended the category to be for any card which says You can only Special Summon <insert card here> once per turn this way. (and we already have a decent number of those, so I thought they could go into a category). Admittedly, I wasn't actually sure what to call the actual category, I thought about "method" at first, but I used "procedure" since I knew it to be official wording. The short end of it is that the category was meant for cards that can only be Special Summoned once per turn through whatever means is listed on the card. Is such a category needed or not, and if so, would there be a better name for such a category? (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 18:46, February 27, 2016 (UTC))
Well, I don't expect it's a term that's going to be officially identified any time soon... so I guess that's vague enough to use in the meantime. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 05:54, February 28, 2016 (UTC)

RE:Hippo Token pages

There should be no individual "MPB Token" pages. If they do exist, then they should all be redirects to the "Mecha Phantom Beast Token" page. If there are such pages that aren't redirects, please let me know. Regarding the individual "Sheep Token" pages... the only reason I haven't cleared those up is because nobody can effectively handle redirecting everything on each of their pages to the "Sheep Token" page; when they do decide to do it, they have to do all the pages at once (and it's a lot of work), otherwise you end up with a half-assed attempt. That's the only reason there are separate "Sheep Token" pages. So there is no other backing for separate "Hippo Token" pages to exist; if people want to check out their different artworks, they can check the Card Gallery (and maybe Card Artworks page?). --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 01:49, March 7, 2016 (UTC)

To my knowledge, they're neutral on the matter, apart from Deltaneos, who's helping shape the policy on Token cards. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 04:24, March 7, 2016 (UTC)
I don't remember the exact details, but...
1) Cards with generic "This is a Token" text and a unique logo (such as Token (Kaiba & Yugi - The Dark Side of Dimensions)) get their own unique pages.
2) Cards with specific names (as seen in their name boxes), such as "Hippo Token", "Charisma Token", etc. get their own unique pages.
3) Cards with unique texts, such as Token (Jaden and Winged Kuriboh), get their own unique pages.
4) All other cards get relegated to the Token page. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 04:45, March 7, 2016 (UTC)
Regarding the "Moon Token": Technically, the TKN3-EN003 card isn't showing a "Moon Token" (along with the other Token cards in that Token Pack); it's just showing the card artwork of the card that produces the Token (a.k.a. "Arcana Force XVIII - The Moon"). And since the card's name is just "Token", it goes on the Token page, not the Moon Token page. The same applies for the TKN4-EN013 card (a.k.a. the MPB Harrliard Token); its name is just "Token", so it goes on the Token page, not the MPB Token page.
So yes, the trend nowadays is that Japan is making Token cards with the actual card names (and stats) of the Tokens they represent: "Infernoid Token", "Synchron Token", etc.
And you're correct, the reason that older Token pages like "Double Dude Token" don't use their real-life Token cards (a.k.a. the TKN3-EN006 card) is because there are no real-life Token cards with the name "Double Dude Token". If you look at the top of these older Token pages, you'll see a disclaimer redirecting people to the "Token" page.
There's a possibility that things might change with the release of SR02, as it has a Token card with the actual name of the Token it represents (along with its stats). However, I'm not very optimistic the TCG will change... (This sort of Token arrangement thing is also important, since that weird orb Token in SR01 might have been assumed to be a "Vassal Token", when it actually isn't.) --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 06:17, March 7, 2016 (UTC)
There's an excuse for the MPB Token: They weren't released in the same product. The Japanese Token was released in a special pack, and the English card was released as part of a reward for this tournament series. It's now or never, regarding the SR02 product. If the TCG decides to not copy Japan, problems won't occur unless they specifically say that the product has a "Great Dragon Token" card.
And no, we're not going to be making an artwork page for the "Token" page. What I can see happening though, is that the {{CardTable2}} template is eventually removed and a layout similar to the Card sleeve or Playmat page is created, allowing for easier displaying of release date and product names next to the associated Tokens. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 20:30, March 9, 2016 (UTC)

TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 18:52, March 14, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding the MPB Token: I was only referring to TCG Konami's reasoning for not using the JP formatting. "We're not releasing the Token in the same product as the Japanese, so we don't have to copy the formatting." I've handled the MPB Token pages, yes. The English MPB Token goes on the generic Token page, because it only says "Token".
I don't plan on revamping the Token page anytime soon, as my major project right now is revamping game mechanic pages (Battle Phase, replays, attacks, etc.) with cited rulings. However, if you do want to get started, all you have to do is create a sandbox page like so: User:Lucafriz/Sandbox. That way, you can experiment with formatting and take your time with designing how it looks. Personally, I'd copy the Card Gallery page and see where it goes from there. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 01:30, March 17, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, doing it this way would make the Card Gallery redundant. However, we don't need to worry about that right now. You can just prepare it in the sandbox beforehand. Feel free to experiment with different layouts. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 01:45, March 17, 2016 (UTC)

Forbidden and Limited Lists

In future, if you're going to make a page for a Forbidden and Limited List, it would ideal if you didn't have a partially complete differences table (since it gives the appearance that those are all the changes); I think no differences table is better than a half-done one. If you want to make it in multiple edits (not sure why you would need to though), it's better to do that in your personal Sandbox, then copy the code over once you're done. --SnorlaxMonster 11:29, March 15, 2016 (UTC)


Please check the article's talk page. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 18:13, April 19, 2016 (UTC)

Sorry about that, though I would suggest that if you want your message to be seen, to edit it into that template which proposed the page move to "Cubic". something like "Please see Talk Page". I know not many seem to look at Talk Pages very often. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 18:19, April 19, 2016 (UTC))


What was your citation for setting the Weekly Shonen Jump April 2016 membership promotional card legality date? I can't find anything that indicates it was legal on April 13th, which was the same date you made that page. I see that you copy/pasted from other pages, but if you had decided to look more carefully, you'd see that none of their legality dates match up with the "last day to sign up" dates. So, where did you find the "Relinkuriboh" banner from? --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 22:21, May 23, 2016 (UTC)


I have nominated you for adminship here. Please accept or decline the review process when you can. Thank you. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 23:59, July 4, 2016 (UTC)

I would hope the experience was valuable, yes. You learned of areas you could work on and that's always something to consider. I'm glad you're going to continue here. Use what you learned and perhaps a future RfA will be successful. :) Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 14:45, July 21, 2016 (UTC)

Card sub pages

Luca, I can tell what you're trying to fix, but creating pages with wrong names like that is not how you do it. You need to null edit the main card page, then null edit the sub pages for it to stop recommending you rename the subpages. --Golden Key (talkcontribs) 17:18, July 21, 2016 (UTC)

Cipher Etranger

Why did you create the page as "Cipher Stranger" and not "Cipher Etranger"? At no point did the Org publish the name as "Cipher Stranger". --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 14:54, August 18, 2016 (UTC)

Monster ability

Hi Lucafriz. Monsters with abilities are, by default, Effect Monsters, so you don't have to note them like "Effect Flip monster", for instance. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 16:21, August 30, 2016 (UTC)

About the members of the Predator Plants...

Since Sundew Kingii and Squid Drosera is basically based from Drosera, isn't it better to keep the previous edit?

Reply to Predator Plants

I see. The thing is, while Moray and Ptero are based from Nepenthes, I specified the species in Ptero's page. That is why I re-grouped them again. S-sorry... ><"

Dark Contract with the Grotesque Entity

Hi Lucafriz. X-Metaman says this card didn't appear in the anime. Usually, X-Metaman's information is accurate. But yours also tends to be. So, when did the card appear in the anime? Could you take a screenshot or something? Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 11:51, October 30, 2016 (UTC)

Supratim1986 is also saying it didn't. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 11:53, October 30, 2016 (UTC)

No worries. The YGOrg page does say that; I'll look into it. In any case, if the card appears in the anime, I'll just bring the page back. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:01, October 30, 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I understand. Don't worry, no problem at all. It happens. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:07, October 30, 2016 (UTC)

Moving card pages

Hi Lucafriz. When you move a card page, it would be good if you could move the card images as well, to match the card name. I've noticed that you often don't move them. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 00:47, November 11, 2016 (UTC)

Also, please try to use the queue when moving batches of images; this will avoid multiple minor edits. You can read info about the queue here. If you don't know how to use the queue or have any questions/doubts, please feel free to give me a poke and I'll gladly give you a hand. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:11, November 11, 2016 (UTC)
No worries.
When you choose to move a file, you'll have three buttons there:
  • Rename page: This button allows you to merely rename the page. It renames File:A.png to File:B.png. Any page that was using File:A.png will still link to file "A.png". A practical example of this is if you upload a 1st Edition image of an Unlimited Edition image; you'll then change it from -1E to -UE and that's all you want to do.
  • Rename and update: Does the same as the above but also renames all the instances of File:A.png in any page (unless you uncheck Include links in all namespaces eg: [[:File:File.png]]; if you uncheck this, it will only update the links on the main namespace. I advise you to keep this checked). A practical example is if you want to rename an image that has a poor/wrong name; you'll want to update all the instances of its erroneous link. For instance, when you move a card page because the TCG name was leaked and you then want to rename the image as well.
  • Add to queue: Exactly the same thing as above, but instead of perpetuating the action immediately, it will place he file in a queue; it won't rename it nor update the instances of its links right away. This allows you to then go to another file and also place that file into the queue. And so on. When you finally have placed all the files you want to rename into the queue, go to any file page and click on the arrow on the yellow "Edit" button; the dropdown menu will open and you shall see an option named "Queue". There, you shall see all the image links you threw into the queue. Like above, check if Include links in all namespaces eg: [[:File:File.png]] is checked there (on the queue). If everything is alright, press "Execute" and only now the pages will be renamed and the instances of their links will be updated.
    The queue will rename every item at the same time (which you can't do if you use Rename and update). This means that if a page contains two of the files you want to rename, only one edit will be made into that page, instead of several, like Rename and update would do. So if you rename several card pages (like you usually do), I'd advise to, after all the renames are made, place the files for those cards on the queue and run them all together.
Don't know if I was clear. If you have more questions, let me know; this can get tricky. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:35, November 15, 2016 (UTC)

Requires specific Synchro Materials for its Synchro Summon

Synchro Monsters are not the same as monsters that can be Tribute Summoned. Most monsters that can be Tribute Summoned have no requirements for their Tributes other than those dictated by game mechanics. On the other hand, most Synchro Monsters do have specific Material requirements, because they are printed on the cards themselves.

I think a property for Synchro Monsters that DO NOT require specific Synchro Materials would be far more useful (and smaller). --SnorlaxMonster 02:46, November 15, 2016 (UTC)

Coin toss

It should be "coin toss", not "Coin Toss", by the text of "Second Coin Toss" and by the rulebook. That means: your page should be "Changes coin toss result". Also "Coin Toss" should be renamed to "Coin toss". Analogous for "Die roll".
And maybe it would be more appropriate to place them under the "action" parameter, what do you think? Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 13:31, November 15, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, there are several pages with capitalization problems. You can move these two new ones you created to "Changes coin toss result" and "Changes die roll result", if you don't mind.
I think it fits better under "action", you could place it there. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 13:45, November 15, 2016 (UTC)


Could you stop adding them please? There might be a discussion on whether or not to use personal pronouns. You can see by my recent moving of your new category. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 04:31, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

I think it's okay to proceed this way then. For instances where you're referring to "you", I believe we'd use "the player". An example would be:
Sends from the Deck to the Graveyard
*Sends from the player's Deck to the Graveyard
*Sends from the opponent's Deck to the Graveyard
However, there might be some instances where some form of "possessor" may be better instead of "player" (idk any atm). If you have any doubt with a category name, feel free to message me or Snorlax or maybe Beca. If you message me, I'll see it (at the most) within 24 hours of your message, and unless an unexpected delay occurs, I'll likely reply immediately. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 04:47, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
It's not that big of a problem, since Beca can arrange for his bot to rename categories en masse, where appropriate. I only ask this for any future categories you make. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 04:57, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
What are you intending to do with with Performs an Xyz Summon? Has it been replaced with Treats Special Summon as Xyz Summon? There's still some anime card pages left, so I'm not sure. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 16:50, December 5, 2016 (UTC)

That's a bad idea, I think. Almost all Spell/Trap Card have an effect that resolves upon the activation resolving. If you mean S/Ts with other effects, well, "Call of the Haunted" is another such card. I don't think this is a category we want. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 23:57, December 29, 2016 (UTC)

Again, this is almost all Spell/Trap Cards. Those aren't Ignition-like or Quick-like either; their effects are only usable at the time the card is activated. In the effect_types parameter, this would be listed as "Effect". --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 00:04, December 30, 2016 (UTC)
It's still very irking. How are you going to define the category name to exclude certain types of cards? Why would "Kunai with Chain" and "Swords of Revealing Light" be excluded, for example, even though they fall under what you're trying to encompass? What is even the functional purpose of trying to identify such cards in the first place? Finally, the terminology is possibly incorrect, if you look at "Macro Cosmos" as an example. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 00:24, December 30, 2016 (UTC)
Lucafriz, I don't think this new search category of yours is very helpful. It's too general; too embracing. I don't think it's useful; I don't think people will search for cards that have an effect that activates when the card is activated. Like, I don't think people need to specifically find cards whose effects activate when the card is activated. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 00:35, December 30, 2016 (UTC)
A category for tracking which cards have effects that activate in the Graveyard actually has a relevant purpose: tracking which cards "Skull Meister" is capable of negating, and which monsters have effects that are prevented by the effect of "Soul Drain". As far as I know of, there is no unique, functional interaction with this group of cards you're trying to identify. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 00:41, December 30, 2016 (UTC)
Lucafriz, I think the main purpose for categories like "Sends from <place A> to <place B>", etc. are useful because it helps with deck building and I don't really need to expand myself, because UltiK covered it nicely.
But for this particular category. Why exactly would people look for that? You said you would find it helpful; how so, exactly? I do like these search categories you create a lot, but I think you're complicating it too much this time. This way, I fear we are going to start having lots of search categories and some of them are too broad or just too niche. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 00:48, December 30, 2016 (UTC)
"Overwrites card effects" has a functional purpose too: finding possible ways to deal with cards/effects that can't be negated. Yes, there is no functional purpose for "placing cards underneath," but that's an anime/manga-only mechanic; what do you expect? Additionally, it's a small-enough group that I don't mind. I essentially have no comment on that category, but will wait for Cheesedude or someone else to comment on that category. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 01:02, December 30, 2016 (UTC)
Don't worry, I don't take it you're offending or something; it's important to discuss these matters and we want your sincerity, to try to understand your points of view.
By me Places cards underneath itself could be deleted too; I don't see any practical uses for it, besides fanfiction (I don't mind it either, to be honest). Which brings me to the point that if we are going to create niche categories (regardless of being embracing or not) or too general categories because of fanfiction, we could create tons and tons of other categories. Like, a search category to track all cards that have exactly two effects. Could be useful, for theme Decks. But it would be exaggerated to have categories for that, just like I think this one is overcomplicating it. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 01:07, December 30, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, at least for the 1 category. I'm not taking a position on the "Places underneath" category though. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 04:10, December 30, 2016 (UTC)

Is there a particular reason why you excluded Spell/Trap Cards from the recent categories you made? Or did you really not think about the possibility? If you deliberately decided to exclude them, then why on earth did you name the categories so ambiguously, instead of like "Activates when Normal Summoned"? --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 18:13, January 10, 2017 (UTC)

Honestly, this frustration comes from the feeling that you're not the best judge of what categories should be defined, what names they should be given, and how they should be defined. I wish I could just let you go on with this (similar to other users who are trusted enough to do their own edits), but it's annoying to have to verify the categories you create. This is just my initiative, but can you just make a list of categories that you want to add, so that the admins can check it over before you actually create them? It doesn't have to be now, and you can add to the list over time. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 18:38, January 10, 2017 (UTC)

If you happen to have Discord, Luca, we could add you on the wiki chat there. That would help with communication and speed up the verification. Cheesedude (talkcontribs) 20:04, January 10, 2017 (UTC)


Hey Lucafriz. When you move a page that is being transcluded (like templates), it's convenient to clean then the instances, especially if the old name is being used for other stuff now. Some episode pages are/were now displaying the navboxes, instead of the scale images. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 17:06, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, the card articles use the actual image. You can check what pages are linking/using a certain page (including templates) on Special:Whatlinkshere. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 13:14, December 17, 2016 (UTC)


Would be appreciated if you could avoid the redirect for "Deck" and instead use [[Main Deck|Deck]] in card texts. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 00:31, December 28, 2016 (UTC)

Help in Editing

Hi there. i don't know how to put pictures in the gallery of a page. Can you please go to the page of City in Synchro Dimension and help add pictures in the Different Views section. I recently added images of the city being transferred and the duel lanes also transferred in the uniting dimension. You can find it it the images. Thanks a lot!!! Denversapple (talkcontribs) 11:56, January 15, 2017 (UTC)

Jelly Hole

I forget if we went over this before, but something like "Fire Formation - Tenki", "Trap Hole", or "Jelly Hole" does not have a Trigger-like Effect. For "Tenki", if it was a 'Trigger-like Effect', then it would need to activate in a new Chain (after its initial activation resolved) due to the rules of SEGOC (Trigger/Trigger-like Effects that meet their activation conditions while a Chain is resolving or being constructed, cannot be activated until after the Chain resolves, assuming it doesn't miss the timing). For every card that has an activation condition that responds to an "event occurring", those aren't Trigger-like Effects. Trigger-like Effects are only possible when the Spell/Trap Card is already face-up on the field, or banished, or in the Graveyard. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 07:13, January 19, 2017 (UTC)

Requires multiple Synchro Monsters as Synchro Material

Hey Lucafriz. Could you please reply on Talk:Requires multiple Synchro Monsters as Synchro Material? Thanks. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 13:45, February 4, 2017 (UTC)

Why did you not reply to my response on the Talk Page, and moved the page regardless? Moving the page without reaching a consensus first isn't good behavior. --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 20:23, February 4, 2017 (UTC)

If that really is the case, then you shouldn't make edits when you're pressed for time. You claim you saw that Becasita consented, but you renamed the page without actually looking at what he said. 9 minutes had passed since I made my comment before you moved the page (you basically had a minimum of 9 minutes of being distracted, up to an extra 32 minutes, after you read Becasita's comment before moving the page... without check the Talk Page to see any further comments/suggestions). What's with these discrepancies? Either sneaky (idk why), or really lazy. I'm not a fan of having to look through longer page histories because of mistakes you've made with these category names (requiring multiple renames for each card page). --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 20:35, February 4, 2017 (UTC)

Replaces detachment of Xyz Materials from an Xyz Monster to activate its effects

Hey Lucafriz. Please don't tag anything with this search category. Just wait some time, please. I don't think it's the best name. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 20:51, February 7, 2017 (UTC)

Yep, I think it's a very useful search category. I just don't have any suggestions for a better name at the moment; I'm also waiting for UltiK to show up and whoever else appears. I'm also doing other stuff at the moment, so I can't give you an answer right away.
I'd just like to try and find a better name; preferably shorter. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 20:58, February 7, 2017 (UTC)
I don't have any good ideas at the moment. Maybe something like "Replaces detaching Xyz Materials" solely. I don't know; something along "Detaches for others", in terms of concept (of concept; not literally that); still not happy. We'll see if we can find a better name. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 21:13, February 7, 2017 (UTC)

Search categories wording

Hey Lucafriz. Any particular reason for you to not be using {{See also}}? And please place it on the top, it's better. Also, on those pages, could you try to word the section headers in a more natural way, please? An example (those might need better re-word). Sounds more natural; also capitalization. Thanks! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 19:51, February 17, 2017 (UTC)

I understand.
Yes, it looks better that way. Thank you! Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 20:02, February 17, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Category name change

Ok, done. Let me know if you need anything. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 22:45, March 1, 2017 (UTC)

RE: Requires Synchro Monsters as Synchro Materials

Hey Lucafriz. Just to let you know I've replied there. And I'll be replying there. In any case. thanks for pointing it to me. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 02:45, March 3, 2017 (UTC)

Ok, I tried to fix it again. The problem is how this is handled individually on each article, I guess.
Let me know if it's fixed or what's missing. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 13:29, March 4, 2017 (UTC)
Ok, now it should be totally fixed. The only one missing is "T.G. Blade Blaster", but that one isn't an Accel Synchro Monster (at least by the card text) nor is tagged with any tag related to its materials. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 13:27, March 5, 2017 (UTC)
No probs. Glad I could help. Thanks for pointing it out.
Yes, the way you did was the most correct.
Regarding the talk page, we just need to wait for more input or for some time to have passed without anyone commenting anything that would change the general idea. Patience, Lucafriz; we'll give it some more days. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 21:28, March 5, 2017 (UTC)
Other people are aware of it. Don't worry. We'll just give it some more days. People have the right to analyze and think about something before commenting. Usually, I wouldn't mind this much. But in this case, several people showed interest and opinions on the matter. I don't want to rush it. Don't worry, I won't forget about this matter myself. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 00:55, March 8, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I knew the card wasn't tagged as such due to the card image text. I didn't know about the chant. I don't think we need to reconcile it. Isn't if fine as it is? The anime one isn't an Accel Synchro, because it doesn't meet the criteria by anime standards (not written on the card); the OCG/TCG one... I guess it can be seen as related to Accel Synchro, but I might be wrong. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 11:44, March 12, 2017 (UTC)
Well, I suppose we can go with the approach on Talk:Requires Synchro Monsters as Synchro Materials. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 23:32, March 16, 2017 (UTC)
I wouldn't bother with "Blade Blaster". The anime one isn't an Accel Synchro, because in the anime, Accel Synchro is a monster card type and is explicitly stated as such (on the card). At the least, it is related to them, so it can be pointed as related to the theme.
That concept doesn't seem to exist in ARC-V, so I wouldn't compare to it. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 00:25, March 18, 2017 (UTC)
Solved. The query was asking for Synchro Monsters only. Those cards aren't exactly «Synchro Monster»; they are some variation of Synchro Monsters. So you either call for them all, or just ditch the "Synchro Monster"part, which was what I did. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 12:43, March 26, 2017 (UTC)

Does not require specific Xyz Materials

Hey Lucafriz. I don't quite get why you did this. You're just using it as another category, with a different purpose? Also, you kinda left it hanging like that. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 22:33, March 6, 2017 (UTC)

Hum, fair enough. I just wondering, in case it was too different of a category (in terms of purpose), if it wouldn't have been better to delete that one and create a new one, heh. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 00:55, March 8, 2017 (UTC)
The thing is: When you move a page, you preserve the history. If you want to create a new page, you're not going to Category:Candidates for Deletion and move a page from there to the new name and overwrite it with new content.
Conceptually, it can make more sense to tag one page for deletion and create a new one. If it's about the same thing, but has another name; move, for sure. If it's about other thing, it's best to delete and create a new one. Especially when "Requires specific Xyz Materials for its Xyz Summon" is the opposite of "Does not require specific Xyz Materials". But let's now worry much about it. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 11:44, March 12, 2017 (UTC)
Weeeell... I sometimes go through page histories; they are important as they hold lots of useful information and you can see why something was added, by who, when, etc., etc.. Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 00:25, March 18, 2017 (UTC)

Traptrix Ranka

Hey Luca, how come you moved Traptrix Ranka to "Card Trivia:Traptrix Coronatus" instead of just to "Traptrix Coronatus"? ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 13:45, April 12, 2017 (UTC)

Oh yes, that was by accident. I created the Traptrix Coronatus page, not realizing that it already existed under the name Traptrix Ranka, so I intended to move the page I made to be a Card Trivia page for the card instead, since there was a bit of trivia regarding that card. Then after that, my intention was to move the already created Traptrix Ranka page to the Traptrix Coronatus name. The thing was, I accidentally moved the already existing Traptrix Ranka page instead of the page I created, but I only realized my mistake after the move occurred. So I just moved the card gallery page to the new name and left it at that, since I figured there was little else I could do about the matter. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. (Lucafriz (talkcontribs) 21:14, April 12, 2017 (UTC))
No problem, though in the future you can ping an admin to fix stuff like that. =) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 22:04, April 12, 2017 (UTC)

Unnecessary categories

Just wondering when you're going to get around to listing "Requires only specific monsters as Fusion Materials with less than 1500 ATK", because I want to build a Deck around "Mystic Tomato" and "Messenger of Peace" that also Fusion Summons. Seriously, what criteria are you using to justify the creation of these categories? --UltimateKuriboh (talkcontribs) 20:19, April 17, 2017 (UTC)

The edit you made to YZ-Tank Dragon broke the link to the Requires_only_specific_monsters_as_Fusion_Materials. The link is valid for this monster. Inclusion of "Effect Monster" is not more clear than "specific monsters". Even changing the "monsters" to "Monsters" will break the link. Please think about whether your changes are needed. I know you have made these changes many places and broken links. You should go back and fix them. Synchro Cowboy (talkcontribs) 20:55, April 17, 2017 (UTC)
