Image categorisation[edit]

When uploading images, please make sure to categorise them using the correct image categories and the guide-specific category, i.e. [[Category:Game Name images]]. Please see our image policy for more details. Thanks for helping to keep our images neat! — WarioTalk 23:42, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

New Move list format[edit]

I'm trying to switch the move lists to use an easier format for arranging the pages which reduces the amount of transcluding pages in multiple places. Please create all the move lists on the /Moves page, and then transclude to Character pages from there. This avoids all the hidden character specific pages that appear everywhere, and all pages can be linked from the Table of Contents. -- Prod (talk) 23:12, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

How do you transclude from a /Moves page? I saw there was a Movelist template but I couldn't figure it out. -BrownDerby (talk) 23:36, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
I've done all the updates to SNK Gals Fighters. It's easiest when there's only one game in the "series". When you have multiple games it gets complicated. I've got a to-do list for all the old games in the previous format that i'm slowly working through, so I'll take care of all of those. I just want to direct you for new guides, as you seem to be on a roll :). -- Prod (talk) 23:49, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
I'm glad to see you getting into the wiki editing so well, and merging the Samurai Shodown 2 guide. Unfortunately, when merging guides, we have to be careful to make sure all editors are still attributed based on the license we follows (see my recent edits). For now I'd suggest that if you're adding to an existing guide, follow whatever standard is already used, and let me take care of the format migration. However, if this is a task that interests you, come on Discord and I can show you a few ways to maybe make the process easier. This series of games is actually a few entries down my list since it has almost 150 pages to update. -- Prod (talk) 05:05, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Character pages[edit]

The Street Fighter games have a lot of back story spanning multiple games, so individual character pages make more sense there. Some of these other games probably don't have as much content for each character, so it may be easier to just have one /Characters page which lists all the characters stories together. -- Prod (talk) 17:59, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
