Template:Alicesoftwiki and Sengoku Rance[edit]

Hello, Template:Alicesoftwiki has been marked for deletion. These types of templates are reserved for our partners, with whom we have a reciprocal relationship. It is against our external links policy to send users offsite for information which should be hosted here. The same can be said for the entire way in which Sengoku Rance had previously been set up. I admire your goal of bringing info from the Alice Soft Wiki here, which you stated on your user page. I think that's a great idea, and because they have a compatible license (CC-BY-SA), we can use whatever they have as long as we properly attribute them. Let me know if you have any questions or would like any help importing their guide. :) — najzereT 21:38, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure if it notifies you of what I respond with on my Talk page, but what exactly is the rules on importing? Is there a template I should use that properly credits other wiki's? And I completely stole your sig. Sorry. [= JepjrTalk 22:43, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
When importing information from other sources (that are compatibly licensed) you just need to add your attribution to the edit summary, which usually consists of a URL of the source document and the author's name. You can see something like that on this history page. Hope that helps! — najzereT 23:42, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Preload buttons[edit]

The preload buttons.

In order to keep pages on the wiki neat and uniform, we employ certain formatting and templates to help us accomplish this. When creating a new page, please use one of the preload buttons located above the edit text box, which will insert the needed templates and formatting for you. Thanks for keeping the wiki organized! — najzereT 23:50, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Image uploads[edit]

Please see our policy on image naming and categorization. For consistency and ease of use throughout the wiki, image names should contain the name of the game or its abbreviation and a one or two word description. All images also need the appropriate categories added, as well as the guide-specific image category (e.g. [[Category:Game Name images]]). Thanks for helping to keep our images neat! — najzereT 23:50, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Also, it is not necessary to have a cover from every system a game comes on – we're more interested in the artwork itself rather than the interchangeable logos on top of the art. — najzereT 23:50, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
It was also the main image for the game, which totally went over my head, but dually noted. --- JepjrTalk 00:21, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for naming those ME2 weapon images correctly and categorizing them as Icons. Just remember to put the guide-specific image category (e.g. [[Category:Mass Effect 2 images]]) and we'll be all set! Cheers, — najzereT 17:22, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Please ensure that all uploads have an image category describing what they are (e.g. [[Category:Icons]]) as well as the guide-specific category. Also note that [[Category:Guide-specific images]] never goes on an image, only on an image category, such as Category:Sengoku Rance images. Let me know if you have any questions or need further clarification. Thanks, — najzereT 18:47, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi again. Please remember to put the guide-specific category on your uploads. Example. Thanks! — najzereT 21:05, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Editing[edit]

It would probably help if you read through the user guide (it was linked in your welcome message), which will inform you of a lot of these little things we're running into (new pages, images, external links, standard links on the Table of Contents page, etc.). It take a little experience to get the hang of all the formatting and templates and whatnot, but hang in there – we appreciate your edits! — najzereT 23:50, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Sorry about the poor editing. I'm starting to get the hang of it. --- JepjrTalk 00:21, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
No prob! Keep up the good work! :D — najzereT 00:31, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Image renaming[edit]

No one sees the image name, so as long as they're somewhat meaningful it doesn't really matter what the filename is. It's just not worth the trouble (page moves, deleting the redirect, updating the guide pages) for very minor change. "PNG" vs. "png" is just a guideline anyway; the wiki treats them both the same. — najzereT 23:38, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Righto, I've seen it done that way in other places. Then please ignore those requests I put in. SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT
No problem, I already reverted them. :P Thanks for doing so much cleanup around here lately! — najzereT 23:44, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Achievement/trophy images[edit]

Hey, thanks for adding all those Star Ocean images. These images get either Category:Achievement images, Category:Trophy images or both to categorize them. Category:Xbox 360 achievements, Category:PlayStation 3 trophies and other categories in Category:Achievements go on achievement and/or trophy pages, like Star Ocean: The Last Hope/Achievements and trophies. Hope that helps. :) — najzereT 15:58, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Ahh, sorry about that. Didn't mean to have to make you change all those images. I just took a quick glimpse at the info page, I didn't read the whole thing. Dually noted. SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT 22:00, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, what do we do if the game has two different images for it's trophies and achievements? or different trophies and achievements for that matter? SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT 23:09, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Well, it depends on how different they are and how many of the images are different. I'm kind of on the fence for Star Ocean, since the trophies are basically the same, just inside picture frames or something. If you feel like it, you can get all the trophy ones and put them in the description cells, but if you don't think it's worth it, I would understand that too. — najzereT 23:23, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I don't think it'd be worth it. They are the same images, just in a frame. SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT 23:38, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon Maps[edit]

Where'd you get the AMAZING quality Pokemon map? — Imjon 02:51, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

If you look on the images pages, it shows where it was from. I got those ones from our partner wiki Bulbapedia, I've already collected most of them, and I'll post them in the appropriate sections. SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT 03:04, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
Silly me. I didn't think about Bulbapedia. I obviously also didn't think to look at the information on the images themselves. Alright. Imjon 03:21, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

How similar is this game to the Gold and Silver game? Can they share a walkthrough? -- Prod (Talk) 03:32, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

For the most part, there are a lot of subtle differences though, and things are adapted to the DS. SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT 03:37, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
In that case I'd suggest treating this game as an expansion, rather than as a completely new game. This means it will transclude the ToC from gold/silver, any minor changes would be mentioned on the relevant pages in sidebars, and major changes go in the game's subtoc. You can refer to Diablo II for a good example. -- Prod (Talk) 03:54, 22 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure. I think a lot of the pages would come out looking oddly due to the sheer number of minor changes. I personally think the guide will look better done individually. Updated images, strategies, all the good stuff. SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT 04:23, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

At the rate you're going, you'll finish the guide before I finish the game. :P Imjon 05:15, 22 March 2010 (UTC)

Deletion question[edit]

Hi, can you explain in more detail the deletion rationale for Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver/Special? Also, is the information already duplicated on another page or can you integrate it where it needs to go? I don't really understand what's going on with it, but as long as the information's not lost I'd like to delete the page for you. Thanks, — najzereT 17:22, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

I just figured since the only thing on there could easily be transferred into the catching section, and there was nothing else apparent going into a special section, that it should be deleted. SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT
Okay, sounds good. Let me know when the info has been moved and I'll delete the Special page. Thanks for the quick response! — najzereT 07:34, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Done. I'll have to make a more appropriate page later, as I'm kinda tight for time now. SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT 02:23, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon template[edit]

Hey, I don't know if you can find a use for it, but I made {{pokemon trainer}} a while back for someone in case you're interested. You can see what it looks like on Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire/Route 120. Cheers, — najzereT 01:22, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

I think ones for individual trainers are too space consuming, one would be better suited for all the trainers in a region. The code for that is simple enough as it is, though. In the Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver guides, you don't get the issue of game identification either, considering all the trainers are the same. It's appreciated, though. I do think this Wiki could use more templates. SRTakugaIcon.pngJepjrT 02:53, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
