Sakura Wars[edit]

Once I'm done mapping out the dungeon I'm working on I can take a look into this game instead for a while. It could be fun to work together on it. --Zaiqukaj 17:31, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I've done a quick test run through the first chapter. It looks like every dialog with options has 4 responses. I'm going to start documenting the results from the responses. I'll also work on mini-game advice. Also happy birthday! --Zaiqukaj 12:37, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Sorry about the delay. I get pretty easily sidetracked from getting online sometimes. I'll get to proof reading. --Zaiqukaj 14:02, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Hamlet[edit]

Hey Johnny, saw your note to Naj, thought I'd supply an answer. A lot of stuff happens in Hamlet (it's Shakespeare's longest play) but the core of the story revolves around a Danish prince named Hamlet. Hamlet's uncle secretly murders his own brother, the king and Hamlet's father, in order to claim the throne. In addition, he marries Hamlet's mother, so naturally Hamlet plans to avenge his father's death by overthrowing his uncle and ultimately killing him (although he too dies in the end, along with his mom.) A lot of people feel that Disney's "The Lion King" is kid-friendly version of Hamlet (Scar kills Simba's father Mustafa, Simba grows up, challenges Scar for power and wins). I haven't played Sakura Wars, so I have no idea how Hamlet relates to the game, but I hope this helps a little bit. Wikipedia has an article about Hamlet, but it's almost as confusing as the play itself. By the way, you're doing a great job, don't feel so nervous about the quality of your contributions.

Square Enix[edit]

Johnny, I really don't wish to embarrass you at all, but reading that you've never heard of Square-Enix is going to shock a lot of people. They're responsible for some of the greatest RPGs in the history of video games, including Chrono Trigger, the entire Final Fantasy series, the entire Dragon Quest series, among several other popular series like Kingdom Hearts, Parasite Eve, the list goes on and on. I would recommend that you try searching for them on Google before you post any more about them. We even have Category:Square Enix that you could have checked out before you posted. They are about one of the most famous game developers out there. Again, I'm totally not trying to make you feel bad, or ridicule you. I just wanted to help you out a little bit here.

Images[edit]

Those images you found for Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love look great. The full size ones will be perfect for their profile pages. I'll make some cropped head shots for the guide when I get home since I'm leaving the house in a moment. Could you please take a look at our our image policy. It has really good tips on how images work here. Also once I do get back is there any part of the box or manuals you think should be scanned for the guide? I'll try to at least get the front and back of the extras booklet for the front page gallery. --Zaiqukaj 14:59, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

No worries. Almost everyone will miss something the first time they try to upload an image. That image idea sounds kind of cool. I was thinking it might be good to have little icons of each girl for the dialog results when you loose or gain favor with them. --Zaiqukaj 15:38, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

I moved your images to proper names and categorized them. When you want to use them in the guide, you can find them here. Keep in mind that image names should have the name of the guide or an abbreviation in them. Also, whatever text you add to the summary actually goes into the file page—it's not just an edit summary. That's where a description of the image and the image categories go. — najzereT 16:01, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Sakura Wars naming differences[edit]

Hi Johnny,

On Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love/Walkthrough, you added the following under the Secret to Supernova Attack section:

"Special note: This is presuming you own the English version. The Japanese version on the PS2 dual version in terms of names is not available so you have to imagine or translate in your view the version you currently own at the time. Example, Rosita is Rikaritta and Cheiron Archer is Sattinga Weinberg in Japan."

This doesn't make sense to me. Are you trying to say that the Japanese version does not have the Supernova Attack? What is the "dual version" of the Japanese PS2 version? How is the Japanese version, in terms of names, not available? Your final sentences refer to naming differences... We often create naming differences pages to compare versions, or add the table to the Getting Started page for reference; the location of the table isn't important, but its existence is. Can you start one for us? --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 19:26, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

I didn't want you to remove it. I just wanted to know what you were talking about, because it doesn't make any sense. Can you rephrase it for me, if it is important? It sounded like you were talking about a few different things and you mashed it all together... --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 20:02, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
I figured you were just trying to talk about naming differences... don't beat around the bush, just say it! Make a table, like so:
Name 1 English -- Name 1 Japanese
Name 2 English -- Name 2 Japanese
etc.
That wouldn't have been so hard, eh? --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 15:42, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

GoldenEye 007[edit]

Please leave out info regarding the voice actors, etc. Focus on the game strategy. If people want that info they can look it up on IMDB or in the game credits. Feel free to make a /Credits page if you really want to list all of those reference, but the info shouldn't be in the walkthrough. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 17:25, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Run on sentences[edit]

Please try to keep your ideas brief. Separate, short sentences are usually better than long ones that try to connect too much. Revising and cleaning up your words is very tough. Please check out this page and this quiz. I want you to be the best editor, ever. =) Thank you for your contributions. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 20:29, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Please do not use "i" on content pages[edit]

Please avoid referring to yourself or to your opinions in the guide content. No one knows who the author is while they are reading it. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 17:09, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

"By the way"[edit]

Try to avoid using phrases like "by the way", as they imply a conversation (which cannot occur), as well as a meaning like "Oh, I forgot to say...". We don't want to forget anything, so make sure things are placed in an order that makes sense. =) --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 05:54, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Do not remove controls from a page[edit]

If other guide versions are combined on a single page, add {{control selector}}. In many cases, generic explanations can be used, but we like to add the control images because it is a feature that we want to use as much as we can so people know that our guides are visually different than the normal ones they've seen before. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 20:39, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Fortune Street[edit]

Hi Johnny. I applaud you for starting a guide on Fortune Street, but I think making direct comparisons to Monopoly only further confuses the description of the game. If you mention Monopoly, then people will start out thinking of the rules for Monopoly, only to be surprised when you further differentiate the rules of the game. Procyon

Heya Johnny, as you may or may not have noticed, Naj isn't as active as he used to be. Unfortunately, I'd put him under the "inactive" label; asking him for help may not be as effective as it used to be. As for the Fortune Street title, this site usually follows North American naming policies, so we'll leave it as is. I made redirects for the Japanese and European/Australian titles to prevent any confusion. Since the game took a major price drop (surprising for a first-party Nintendo game, but welcome of course :), I'll probably be picking it up myself some time soon. I'd be willing to help you out with the guide if you'd like. --WarioTalk 15:45, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Mass Effect 3 and CotM[edit]

I don't have Mass Effect 3, so unfortunately I won't be of much help. I have seen the 2nd one, and I am playing Dragon Age Origins which is similar, but overall the best I can do is watch your edits and maybe go out and grab some info from another guide. I will make it the collab for December if no other game beats it out. Luigi's Mansion 2 was nominated earlier. Also, I am really spread out around games, but am currently investing my game time on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, which I will not be helping to develop on StrategyWiki, as MMOs are just way too much work for one person and I prefer dedicated Wikis for those (there are already 4 or more out there for that game). Anyways, keep it up. You're not alone. Just play through the game and make concise notes here for each section. The next person will expand upon what you do not. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 19:41, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
