Decks for Free!

Hey Nep, thanks for always being a contestant in the Deck Contests.

Anyway, I don't want to talk about that, but I want to talk about Forum: Decks for Free!. A while ago, I left Decks for Free to go do other things, and after I left, the page become more or less dead, after almost 2-3 years of continued service and use.

I'm trying to restart DFF, and I need Deckbuilders to do it. I can't really count on my old staff/old friends, as they are busy with their own lives, and have kinda just not been there. I need to hire new staff, would you be interested in becoming a deckbuilder for Decks for Free!? I'd actually have to test you, by giving you a deck to make, but I think you should be fine, as your decks are usually solid in the contests.

---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 22:51, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

1 or 2 decks a week, isn't bad, and it's better than nothing. I'd like for you to build a deck around Ocean Dragon Lord - Neo-Daedalus or Satellite Cannon as a test. ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 20:13, October 21, 2012 (UTC)
That's great. But I'm not sure I really want to start DFF back up again. The other users I had asked to make decks didn't make decks, not that they didn't try but I never got a deck after a few weeks, so I'm not very optimistic. I might just give up on it and continue with just the Weekly Deck Competition. ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 14:12, November 23, 2012 (UTC)
Unless a bunch of people in the Weekly Deck Contests want to help? I mean most of the decks are built with good foundations, even if the deck doesn't always seem to reflect that.

WDC 34

Go see to comments section on this contest to see how to turn off the Signing reminder. ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 01:28, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

Decks can be turned in now. -Dark Ace SP (Talk) 00:18, December 1, 2012 (UTC)


I see. Personally it doesn't seem bad, if you have it on DN, do you want to play me sometime? ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 14:23, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Never mind, I see you posted the deck over 3 hours ago. ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 14:24, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Post more comments in a bit. ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 14:25, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Well I think I can add you onto the active staff bar, I don't see anything wrong with your deck. If your up for it, I can go ahead and reopen DFF? ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 20:44, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Could you try to add something to your profile, so it doesn't become a red link when I do this: User:Nephthy. ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 20:48, November 25, 2012 (UTC)
Will reopen now. ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 03:12, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

Decks for Free! Staff Guidelines

1) Always try to help the requester actually make their deck, if you've tried to make it and it won't work or they request cards that never want to work together, then inform them of that and ask if they want something else.

2) Be respectful, the people we help are members of the community on this wiki. They want to know that the person on the other side of the screen is actually willing to listen to them and not just bluntly ignore them.

3) Be respectful of the other members of DFF, they are actually trying to help someone too.

4) Cooperation is the quickest way to happiness. So in other words ask for help from another deck builder when you need it.

5) Remember that this will probably be the final attempt by me to restart this project, if it fails it fails, and we go on with our lives, or one of you can try to deal with the stress if you want. But let's not get there yet.

Basically it's like a restaurant, don't piss off the "customers" and try to help them, at the same time don't make yourself hated by your boss or coworkers. Let's try to enjoy what we do.

And as a general rule, let's all trade DN names in case we need to test and deck and have no one to test it against. ---Dark Ace SP (Talk) 03:25, November 28, 2012 (UTC)


Hey, I'm looking forward to working with you in DFF and just wanted to introduce myself to the rest of the staff. If you ever need me for anything just post it on my talk page and I will be happy to get back. Also like Ace said we should exchange DN names, and mine is the same from here, Hastydemon2. Hastydemon2 (talkcontribs) 04:39, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

DN name

Sup, my DN name is boris12. Nice to meet ya.--Let the Number take hold! 05:32, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

I'll contribute here aswell, my DN name is GearfriedThe Synchro, pleased to meet you. BROOKLYN RAGE! 08:01, November 28, 2012 (UTC)User:BROOKLYN RAGE!
My DN name is the same as on here, and do you think you could take a deck, as the others already have, but if you don't see anything interesting, then that's fine as well. -Dark Ace SP (Talk) 14:47, December 2, 2012 (UTC)

Decks for Free! and 2013

First off a little holiday music: Music Link!

So, the end of the year is approaching, and the holiday season is upon us, with Christmas about 2 weeks away. At this time of the year, Decks for Free goes into a shut down/revamp period.

During this "down time", if you can even call it that, I usually like to make edits or changes to the overall design and usability of Decks for Free as a whole, and I like to have everyone's thoughts on this matter before any real work is done.

So here are thoughts that are swirling in my head as I'm typing this message.

  • We need to update the rules section! I'd like all members to read the rules to themselves and wonder if we really need a certain rule. I mean Decks for Free! is a few years old, and certain rules may need to be made more "Yu-Gi-Oh environment of today" friendly or they may need to be totally reworded, as right now, they may be kinda "clunky". So find those rules, and give your opinions on them, and any possible ideas you have for an update.
  • We should get rid of unused parts of the page. I truly liked the Decks for Free! Staff Application Center when we first put it in place, but now I wonder. That page has kinda been unedited for a while, and it might be better to just put Deletion requests/notices on them for an admin to remove later. Thoughts?
  • Any other ideas are welcome as well.

Merry Holiday Season to all, and to all a very jolly and folly evening or morning as the case may be.

Forum: Deck Contest 36: We'll Miss You 2012! --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 15:33, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

Decks are due for WDC 36. --Dark Ace SP (Talk)

Need to Relax and Retire

Yeah, I just don't have the will to do DFF anymore. I've tried to continue DFF for almost 2 years, and I just haven't had enough time to really enjoy the different archetypes that come out. I kinda want to, so I'll leave DFF and put Brooklyn in charge. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 16:20, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

Deck Contest

Deck submission time, guys! --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 23:07, February 16, 2013 (UTC)

P.S. Did you have any more ideas about certain challenges we could use? --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 23:07, February 16, 2013 (UTC)

Decks for Free

Can you give a second opinion on this? --Evolution Is The Key 09:01, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Meklord

I'll put up my thoughts after I've looked over the deck and bit more and try to think of something. In the meantime, I think you should also ask User:Synchro Maniac10 about the deck too, he's done a lot more off the wall decks than I have, and I think he'll be a bit more help as well. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 23:48, April 7, 2013 (UTC)

Damn! I can't think of anything! The Meklord and Synchron combo is just too out there for me. But it was a cool deck, rest assured of that. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 01:40, April 12, 2013 (UTC)

Contest 39

Try to have your deck in the WDC by the due date which is fast-approaching. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 22:51, April 29, 2013 (UTC)

Due date is tomorrow! --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 12:46, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

Your Username

Just wondering where you got your username from. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 22:08, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

Dude, I needed to say thank you. Dueling with your crazy, most-likely one-of-a-kind Synchron Stealer deck gave me the final piece of the puzzle I need to finish off Machina Synchron. Take a look. If you have advice, please do tell. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 02:33, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
Celestial Dragon is probably amazing enough to warrant space, and I can probably drop some others for some better Synchros. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 12:31, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
Current version of deck. The only thing I have to say is that Trifortressops puts in overtime, thank you Konami for a TCG exclusive that actually is useful without being overpowered. Secondly, I somehow drew all 3 Tuning first turn, not worried though, because that happens less than 1.9% of the time. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 13:29, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
Thinking of dropping Machina Cannon for Machina Force. I really won't use either of their effects, and Force can't be hit by Deck Devastation Virus. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 13:32, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
That's true. I don't mind dropping the Veiler for "C". But then I lose the utility to use Trifortressops for a Level 7 Synchro, it's not perfect, but it's at least something. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 01:36, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

Need Staff...

I know you're busy with real life stuff Nephthy, but when you get some free time, mind helping out with DFF? --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 04:26, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

I think you told us..not sure, but me and Haste and SM10 can handle it. Not like we have a lot of requests anyway. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 13:25, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

Lost connection when we were dueling, and it's taking too long to get back in. --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 14:07, July 12, 2013 (UTC)

You're the only one that hasn't replied to the PM, did you want to add something to the conversation? --Dark Ace SP (Talk) 20:29, August 19, 2013 (UTC)


Thanks for the help on the Garunix/Nephthys loop. Your username was also an added bonus. Silverspark is Was and forever will be Awesomer than thou! 00:22, December 29, 2013 (UTC)
