Welcome to all users! This page is where you can ask StrategyWiki-related questions to the staff and senior community figures, and they will do their best to answer. If you want to raise a topic for discussion (rather than just ask about it), please use the community issues forum instead. New issues are entered here, with the most recent at the bottom of the page. If your question does not pertain to editing StrategyWiki (e.g. asking for hints or game-specific information), please ask on the guide's talk page or on the forums.

Please review the Table of Contents to see if your issue has already been raised; also check the archives (to the right) in case it was discussed some time ago.

To facilitate ease of browsing and replying, please:

  1. Place your question at the bottom of the list.
  2. Title the question (by placing the title between equals signs: ==Title==).

Series logos for category page[edit]

I had a question concerning categories that have a logo on them. Is it allowed to put a logo (in my case, I wanted to upload the EA Sports Madden NFL/NHL/FIFA stylized text) on a game series page or is that only for console pages? JeffMandM (talk) 20:51, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I believe there's a spot in the infobox for an image, so go for it! -- Prod (talk) 22:05, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

"Broken" Header Nav in Table of Contents[edit]

When I discovered that the Commodore Amiga version of the game I am currently writing about, Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, was composed of nine levels instead of just four (like all the others), I had to edit the Table of Contents to give that version its own Walkthrough page; however, in doing so, I have somehow caused the ToC to be displayed in the Header Nav with centred text (and not after clicking "[show]" either) and after two attempts to fix it, it has not been rectified! If somebody could tell me what I have done wrong and how I can fix it, I would be most grateful - as this has never happened to me on having to edit a Table of Contents before.

You can't put a comma in page links. You had "ZX, CPC and Commodore 64" in your link name, and the comma broke things. It's fine to put commas in the description of links, but not the link itself. I changed your page names to 8-bit and 16-bit, while leaving the descriptions alone. Feel free to change them if you wish, but avoid commas. Procyon 17:33, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

GraphWizExtensionDummy dot[edit]

What's the deal with this file being uploaded every time an edit is made? Did something glitch out? T.testLP(talk) 12:24, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

I updated to the latest version of mediawiki yesterday (1.25.1) and all the extensions at the same time. Looks like there's a bug in this version. I'll open a ticket with the developers about it. -- Prod (talk) 13:31, 29 May 2015 (UTC)


Twitch has channels for tons of games, and I've added a link below all main page infoboxes to the channel for the each game. Should we keep it? -- Prod (talk) 01:28, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

It certainly sounds like a neat idea. It doesn't necessarily contribute to the guide, but some streams can provide extra strategic guidance. For popular multiplayer games, one can even see tactics in action and compare them with written advice. Definitely keep it. T.testLP(talk) 19:04, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Where is Io in ff6?[edit]

Every time I see this enemy mentioned, on any site, it never states where to find it.

So, where can it be found? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

Io may be found in Dreamscape during Cyan's nightmare, specifically in the mine section. Also, you may want to post the question on the talkpage of the associated guide, as it is more likely to attract attention of those familiar with the game in question. This allows them to both reply, and make a potential change to the guide at the same time. --Sigma 7 (talk) 01:54, 25 June 2015 (UTC)


I am playing Runescape and am in the lower section of the house on the hill. I have made it through the door with the water barrels, but the creature I find around a sharp bend in the path is spitting poison at me and I do not know how to kill it so I can move on. Can you please help me? Thank you.


Several times now, when I go to SW, I see large, window-filling Flash-based pop-up advertisements. What's more, the "close" buttons on the ads don't always work (in which case I must refresh the webpage). I have seen the "Dominion" ad on the main page, and a video game ad on the sign-in page. Prod, Procyon, is there anything you can do about this? Thanks! Wjk (talk) 18:47, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We will investigate it and do our best to stop it. Procyon 23:50, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
