Proposing a template

Hey guys, i'm new here...so i'm not sure how you guys want your template's styled. I see you are using pretty simple borders, white background and black text for infoboxes. But what about navigation templates? do you guys want them? if so, do you know what style you want them? if not, i can generate a list of template I've seen/helped out on, and you can tell me which you like. Tacopill 20:16, 11 September 2010 (MDT).

Well I don't care. We could use some sort of system for the vast amounts of weapons in the games. Yusei 21:36, 11 September 2010 (MDT)
You don't care as in: You don't want them at all? or you don't care how they are styled? Tacopill 08:26, 12 September 2010 (MDT).
I don't mind how they are styled as long as they fit with the rest. Yusei 08:41, 12 September 2010 (MDT)
Ok, being I've never played any Fire Emblem before, this is probably going to seem obvious to you. But i will ask anyway....How integrated are the games. For example, if the character list isn't integrated at all, then modeling after this template maybe useful. if, however, they are fully intergrated, then this template maybe more useful. More options include:
  1. [1],
  2. [2],
  3. [3],
  4. [4],
  5. [5],
  6. [6],
  7. [7],
  8. [8],
  9. [9],
  10. [10],
  11. [11],
  12. [12],
  13. [13],
  14. [14],
  15. [15],
  16. [16],
  17. [17],
  18. [18];
Note: Not all of these templates were deigned by me. Tacopill 11:08, 12 September 2010 (MDT).
They look pretty nice to me. So about the question about the games - the games are set in separate places and continents. Fire Emblem 1-3, an set of extra maps, & 11 (Ankoku Ryuu, Gaiden, Monsho no Nazo, Akaneia Senki, and Shadow Dragon (a remake of FE1)) take place in a continent called Akaneia, except for Gaiden, which is in Barensia, but has been confirmed to be in the same universe, FE4 and 5 (Seisen no Keifu, Thracia 776) take place in Jugdral, FE6 and 7 (Fuuin no Tsurugi, "Fire Emblem") are in Elibe, FE8 (Sacred Stones) is on its own in Magvel, and FE9 and 10 are in Tellius. Every continent is completely unrelated, and may or may not take place in separate universes.

So this means each continent has its own set of characters and locations and stuff, although a lot of other things like game mechanics and weapons are in multiple games. Plus there are tons and tons of characters (all with different names! almost), usually at least twenty in one game. So we'd probably have to make different character and location templates for each universe or game.

There are exactly two characters who overlap the universes, Jake and Anna, two random married unimportant NPC characters who appear sporadically, except for Anna, who's in almost every game as a woman who says game functions (such as when suspending the game, when deleting a file, link cable arena, etc.). They could imply that the continents are in the same universe, since Jake is recruitable in one game and his ending says that he and his wife dream of traveling to distant lands.

So you wouldn't mind if we used them here, would you? The color schemes would may be altered, and of course the content altered for Fire Emblem. If so, then where should we give credit? Seritinajii 20:03, 12 September 2010 (MDT)

Well, this kind of depends on how you document the templates. You see, at lylat wiki as well as previous wiki's, I've been using a /doc subpage to be about that templates usage. Now, myself and Neo (the wiki's founder) argue over how much info is needed on the template: he thinks this way is better, meanwhile i think this way is better, albeit a bit more complex. Either way, we're you document the template i would put a link to the place you got it from (including the date of said copying). If you wish, you may use the Export & Import Tools. Just be warned, if you do so you may import every template that template uses. Which template(s) are you thinking about Borrowing? (and i hope i didn't scare you away). Tacopill 21:04, 12 September 2010 (MDT).
Not that i am trying to recruit people at the moment, but i went looking around other wiki's i helped out on and found more templates you can look at:
  1. [19]
  2. [20]
  3. [21]
  4. [22]
  5. [23]
  6. [24]
  7. [25]
  8. [26]
  9. [27]
  10. [28]
  11. [29]
  12. [30]
  13. [31]
  14. [32]
  15. [33]
  16. [34]
  17. [35]
  18. [36]
Anyway, hope i didn't overload anyone with options. Each of you can take half of list and call me in the morning. 22:57, 12 September 2010 (MDT).


Skype

Do you have it? If you do add me on it at zt-yusei. I've made a FE Wiki Skype. Yusei 11:48, 16 September 2010 (MDT)

That i do..... See my user page... Tacopill 12:05, 16 September 2010 (MDT).

A note about the hiatus notice on front

Hey guys, i am going to be away from September 29th, 2010 to October 4th, 2010. I will be visiting one of my old colleges for a LAN Party, and don't know how much free time i will have, no how much i will be visiting the wiki. I will probably still have acess to email, so if something turns up, just leave a message on this page, and i will look at it when i am next able. Thanks, and see you guys Monday. Tacopill 13:43, 28 September 2010 (MDT).

And i am back.

About templates

Hello, Tacopill. I'd like to ask if you could create some templates for the classes pages once we decide what is needed... of course, if you have time ;) --Aria der Donau 22:05, 6 October 2010 (MDT)

Yeap. i can do that. The searching for information on classes is why i started the talk in the first place. :D . Tacopill 00:20, 7 October 2010 (MDT).

Top secret missions

I am beginning to recurit people for a few top secret missions. If you think you may be interested, and have the spare time, then drop me an email at bud0011[at]gmail[dot]com, user "tacopill" on skype or here on the wiki. Of course, i can't discuss what they are here, but you can still express interest in them. Tacopill 22:24, 18 October 2010 (MDT).

Hmm, sure, why not? Sounds interesting. (would this count as contacting you 'here on the wiki'?) Seritinajii 04:59, 19 October 2010 (MDT)
It does count, but as i said, i can't discuss them here. I do appreciate the interest, though. ;). Tacopill 10:59, 19 October 2010 (MDT).
Interest sparked! I'll send you an email soon. Strategex 16:39, 19 October 2010 (MDT)
Sounds good. Tacopill 21:16, 21 October 2010 (MDT).

F-Zero Wiki

Needs to be added to the interwiki table. Thanks. --SnorlaxMonster 06:57, 19 March 2012 (EDT)

Alright. Will Take care of it. Tacopill 17:09, 19 March 2012 (EDT)
Might prove to be more difficult. Tacobot
Alright, fixed. Tacopill 22:09, 20 March 2012 (EDT).

Dragon Quest Wiki

The URL path is wrong. It should be http://www.dragon-quest.org/wiki/$1, not http://www.dragon-quest.org/$1 --SnorlaxMonster 06:43, 4 April 2012 (EDT)

Alright, consider it fixed. Thank you for pointing it out. Tacopill 17:32, 4 April 2012 (EDT).

Skill Tonic

Due to a specific entry on the blacklist, I was unable to create the page Skill Tonic normally. As a result, I instead had to create it in my userspace as User:Shiningpikablu252/Sk.Tonic, and the Skill Tonic's image had to be uploaded as File:Is 3ds01 skil tonic.png. Is it possible to get those assets to where they should be normally? Thanks. --Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 17:34, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

I apologize, but do you know what needs to be changed and how it needs to be changed. I am looking at MediaWiki:Titleblacklist, and don't see "Skill" or "Tonic" listed. Tacopill (talk) 01:45, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
It's a string within the word "skill" that trips the blacklist...--Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 16:49, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay. Try it out now. Tacopill (talk) 02:30, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, but it didn't work. Got tripped up by this message:
"User:Shiningpikablu252/Sk.Tonic" cannot be moved to "Skill Tonic", because the title "Skill Tonic" has been banned from creation. It matches the following blacklist entry: .*[Kk][Ii1][Ll1][Ll1].* ### kill
Given the amount of franchise elements that use the words "skill", "killer", and "killing", I don't see why the string "kill" would be on the title blacklist...--Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 15:50, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
Alright, with some help, found out it is a problem on the server side, and fixed it :). Try it out now. Tacopill (talk) 18:38, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
Success! --Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 01:42, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
*Double RockPose* (Bottom, righthand panel). Tacopill (talk) 20:57, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Another blacklist issue, I'm afraid...

While going about and writing rough starter articles for the Awakening bosses, I've ran into one whose name trips the blacklist. Specifically, the name of the boss of paralogue 1, Roddick. A string within the character's name (I've bolded the string in question) trips the blacklist, meaning I cannot create the article for Roddick under normal means. I've already written the target article at User:Shiningpikablu252/Para1 Boss, so all that really remains is to get the matter sorted out...--Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 17:39, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Try again. --Moydow (Support) 23:16, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
Worked! Thanks. --Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 23:45, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
