Image Problem.[edit]

I was editing the move list for Duck King in Real Bout Fatal Fury, but for whatever reason his picture didn't show up. Can you help me?

Thank You. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kingofstreetfighters (talkcontribs) .

Dragon Spirit life bars[edit]

With regards to your edit of the Walkthrough page, I feel I should tell you the cabinet has a special "life" setting; by pushing Tab in MAME and picking "Dip Switches", you will find it (it is set to "2" by default, but can be upped to "3"). Namcorules (talk) 05:40, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Japanese vs English titles[edit]

Hi Procyon. First of all, happy new year!

When I wrote to Sonic Hussein, I applied some psychology. I listed five corrections, and I expected him to follow just some of them, to probe what was really bothering him. As it turned out, he followed four out of five, leaving out just the less meaningful (Jap-Eng), and that is way better than what I hoped! I think he was too hasty in editing and too lazy to read all the website rules. If the guy avoided the ban, everybody wins.

About the English vs. Japanese titles, I know the Strategywiki policy and I agree with it. In fact, I used the subtle specification "the due priority", that is different from "an absolute priority". I explain. I feel that writing, e.g.: "Mega Man, also known as Rockman in Japan", sounds like: "Mega Man was made in a Western country, but the Japanese changed the title to Rockman"; so I would prefer, e.g.: "Mega Man was originally released in Japan as Rockman". It is just my whim, so I won't get anal about it. Therefore, I decided to leave alone the last edits by Hussein Sonic for the time being, even if "or known as" is outright wrong. --Abacos (talk) 10:44, 22 January 2017 (UTC)


Sooo.... why was the Melee tier list deleted? I was adding that in to be consistent with the Brawl page having it's tier list added, and I was gonna fill it in. I wasn't gonna leave it in it's current state!

I'll definitely look at point No. 2 again; I kind of forgot about that during my hiatus[edit]

And yeah, the bold-face was to draw attention; I'll see what I can do about that. Thanks for pointing that out so graciously; I really appreciate that, and I will fix the issue! Have a happy Easter, and God bless you!

EDIT: Oh yes, btw; what's the reasoning for marking a page as "Minor Edit"? Each edit requires you to provide a summary regardless, so I'm wondering if that's something for the mods?

Re: Signing and minor edits[edit]

Ah, I see. Good to know that I've been using the "Minor Edit" box correctly.

As for reducing the bold-face, it's my pleasure man. I want this guide to be as great as it can possibly be; so I'm more than happy for every bit of editing assistance you've got. Thank you so much, and God bless you.

When you update an image; how long does it take for the changes to take effect?[edit]

About a day ago, I realized I wanted to add more information to one of the images I uploaded, so I did so. But, looking at it, it seemed the updated image didn't reflect any of the changes I made; so I just assumed I accidentally uploaded an old version, and replaced it again. I got a message saying that I was uploading a duplicate, but I chose to save it anyway...

And then, lo and behold, the previous one suddenly had the changes I made...for some reason. So it seems to me like there's some sort of lag that happens before the first version is swapped out for the updated version; but I don't know how that works. Would you mind explaining that to me?

Thank you so much, and God bless you.

Fionordequester (talk) 22:59, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

Right, I'll stop using that phrase. Sorry about that.[edit]

Any time there's something else you wish for, feel free to tell me, ok? Have a nice day!

Fionordequester (talk) 17:55, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

I wish to update my guide so that it better keeps track of collectables; is it ok if I use the bold-face font for that?[edit]

So for example, instead of this specific passage reading like this...

Current Verson

Goowain can be recruited where the northwest Mini Medal is in the remakes!

I would want it to read more like this:

Updated Verson

Goowain can be recruited where the 24th Mini Medal is in the remakes!

Would that be ok? That's the convention that the latter half of my guide uses, but I could simply change the latter half if that's more desirable.

Fionordequester (talk) 03:53, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Re: Mini-Medals[edit]

Sounds good! I also updated the SNES Mini Medal icon to be higher quality; the original was fine, but I knew of a way to make it even better while still keeping it the exact same size. Thanks for all your help!

Saw your comment on my edit to Digimon World: Dawn And Dusk/Controls[edit]

What I said in email was that, it being my first edit on StrategyWiki, I felt it'd be less of a faux pas to reference a page with identical content rather than get someone angry at me for plagiarism of their work. EndymionMallorn (talk) 03:25, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

Re: Image Name[edit]

Yeah, that was a typo. I meant for the new name to be "DQ6 Murdaw's Keep Part 1.png"; but I guess I goofed. I was also typing that from my iPad, which is prone to crashing on Strategy Woki, so I forgot to use the Preview button, once again.

Templates for Dailymotion?[edit]

This is Fionordequester, and I'm now covering the final boss of Dragon Quest VI. He is by far the hardest, longest, most complicated fight in the game, so I wanted to make a video walkthrough of that fight like I did for the "VS. Murdaw, Round 2" page. Actually, I wanted to make two of them; one for those who followed the guide, and one for those who didn't.

However, Youtube does not allow annotations to be made anymore, so I can't commentate on everything happening in the fight like I could for the previous video; so I uploaded the two videos to Dailymotion instead. But it doesn't look like there's a template for Dailymotion.

Is there any possibility that one could be created, or is that something that would take a while to do? Thank you for your time.

Fionordequester (talk) 05:50, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

If you're looking to embed a Dailymotion video, you can find an example here. Just change the URL accordingly and that's it. Lukey140701 (talk) 21:41, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Questions. mostly about Final Fantasy X[edit]

1. Can I use information from another wiki - wikia to be exact, to add to this walkthrough, if I don't use this information verbatim? Is most of the information on strategywiki user generated? meaning, it's completely researched on the user's part? Or are there other sites I can quote if I leave a source? 2. How do I know what type of information to add to a stub? I'm specifically referencing the main Final Fantasy X page, I would like to edit that, but I'm not sure where to start. 3. Are any walkthrough videos hosted on this site? Can we add personally made videos, or links to good walkthrough videos? Svrangerchrista (talk) 04:12, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

Why did you delete the sandbox?? Svrangerchrista (talk) 00:24, 27 May 2017 (UTC)


Pre-load buttons[edit]

The pre-load 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 pre-load buttons located above the edit text box (e.g. click on "Guide page" to add {{Header Nav}} to the top and {{Footer Nav}} to the bottom), which will insert the needed templates and formatting for you. These templates are very handy because they include the templates that are required for each page type. If you are unsure about how to use them, or what pages to use them on, please let me know. Thanks for keeping the wiki organized! — Procyon 01:11, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

Every new page you added is missing the Header and Footer Navs. Could you please go back to each new page and add them to the top and bottom of the pages respectively? When editing the page, you can use the Guide markup insert box below the edit box. You'll see {{Header Nav|game={{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}}} and {{Footer Nav|game={{subst:BASEPAGENAME}}|prevpage=|nextpage=}} in there. Just click on them to insert them into the page. It would be nice if you could fill in the prevpage and nextpage links, but it's not required. Thanks. Procyon 01:11, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Hello Procyon. I am sorry but I didn't knew that. I've created 18 pages and I would prefer to do it with AWB if possible (I know how to use it: I've more than 102,000 edits with SyntaxTerrorBot on I had the idea of adding links to the military units and other similar pages with it as it is lacking in the AoE2 walkthroughs.
Anyway, I will not do those edits tonight, it is 4:22 am here and I'll go to sleep soon...
Waiting for your answer and possibly my accreditation to use a bot on this wiki.

ARMS Institute[edit]

Thanks for fixing the link. Inkipedia uses this one inkipedia:File:ARMS Institute favicon.png, while bulbapedia uses this one as icon for ARMS Institute. --Raltseye (talk) 17:31, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

Reply on writing quality.[edit]

Thank you for your honest opinion. I guess I haven't really done the editing, the right and proper way. I'm just trying to hard to add as much gameplay info as I can including spoilers and such. Perhaps I should tell you I have mild autism. I just need a place to exert my creativity. I have no complaints against you since you're obviously normal.

I'll do my best to follow your example. By the way, I saw like gold stars on the top of those games. Are those featured guides? What makes a feature guide? There's still more for me to learn. And if "Trial and Tribulations" gets a gold star, I'll be very happy.

It won't be easy but I'll try not to be such a nuisance when it comes to editing in things that you wouldn't like me to do.

Johnnyauau2000 (talk) 05:53, 29 July 2017 (UTC)

All I can say is sorry. It's hard not to do it again so what words can I use? My English is not that good. Help me on this.

Johnnyauau2000 (talk) 15:12, 24 August 2017 (UTC)


Hello Procyon. I wish few edits on this wiki. I don't copy text from other websites or anything. 05:39, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Honestly, I have no idea what you're asking for. Register an account. Procyon 23:59, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Advice on horror games.[edit]

It might be just me but I'm still figuring out how to do this without being scared of those games. Games for example like Doom, Resident Evil etc can take a while to accomplish. Of course I live in Australia and the current climate is very hot. So I'm taking a break until the heat cools down. Believe me, it's hard working in the heat, especially if the humidity is high.

I've already accomplished in dealing with the Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney Trilogy with a few other similar games. So because Christmas and New Years is a few weeks away, I'm going to wait until February to start working on much tougher Nintendo Switch projects I wanted to do.

I appreciate the advices you gave me and I have no grudge against you. Instead, I want to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Thanks. From Johnnyauau2000 (talk) 07:44, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

RE: DW3 Party Article Complexity[edit]

Looking at the page before and after I started my edits, I see your point. But I also have one request. Could I edit the parts that conflict with whatever advice I give in the "Advanced" page? Because otherwise, you have two pages that contradict each other in rapid succession.

Also, I contacted the original page writer, Koweja, to let him know that I had begun changing the page he started. I realized I wouldn't feel terribly good if someone started editing my own DQ6 walkthrough without talking to me about I reached out to him to keep him in the loop.

Oh no, I wasn't asking if YOU could find someone to do that FOR me. No, I was asking if I could do it myself, after waiting for Koweja to respond to me. Even then, I'm not going to change anything till I've finished my own page. I was just asking for the future.

Much Obliged for the greetings[edit]

Thanks for the little welcoming and what not. It's greatly appreciated. I do want to apologize if I come up as editing multiple pages or such on the system. Still getting used to wiki markup and don't always have the spur of the moment to finish editing pages. I will get as much as what I started finished to the best of my ability if it can be minded. Though yea, really this is mostly a thank you notice. Was actually afraid I might've been yelled at for the WIP control page of Sonic Colors or something haha. I hope this will be published in the right section, if not I'll at least know which buttons not to hit next time.FancyJozie (talk) 01:46, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

RE: External Linking[edit]

Yeah, my apologies. I knew it wasn't a perfect solution; but the information I linked there was really important information...Too important to leave out for too long. I'm not comfortable doing really heavy duty page formatting. Plus, it seemed like that guide would have taken a while to reconstruct.

So if I run into a similar situation in the future, what would you recommend I do?

I am very sorry to have caused you such frustration. I seem to have a very difficult time understanding how this all works. Would you prefer that I run my pages by you before posting anything? At least till I've managed three or so page edits without incidence? I truly don't want to make life hard for you...

NeoGeo Battle Coliseum/Modern Warriors[edit]

A user made modifications to a number of move lists linked from this page. They definitely messed up where the {{Special Move}} template closes, but it doesn't seem to have broken the layout. Most of the changes seem cosmetic, so I'm wondering if you can verify his changes before I subst them to the main page. -- Prod (talk) 09:01, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

Troubleshooting email[edit]

Hey, I'm not sure if you're the person to ask, but I'm having trouble verifying my email. It says a confirmation code was sent to my email, but it didn't send, and it hasn't sent on repeated retries. I know the email address is correct because I copied it straight from my email client.

(You can reply here.)

EDIT: (02:33, 25 March 2018 (UTC)) The Main Page should have a section listing how to get basic help in all areas; it's kind of hard to figure it out if you don't look at the sidebar. --The Retro Gamer 02:29, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Problems with my notifications[edit]

Hi, I have problem with my notifications, and I want to fix this issue, the notifications automatically appear unread every time, while I click mark as read, I has posted on Prod's talk page, my talk page, and I do not get any reply, please can you reply to me please so I how I can fix so the notifications appear unread while I click mark as read, Psl631 (talk) 11:08, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Metroid (NES): Mistake in map of Kraid's Lair / Hideout I[edit]


while replaying Metroid (NES) I enjoyed your detailed maps of the game. Unfortunately I have found a small mistake in the one of Kraid's Lair / Hideout I. To be more exact, I mean the room left of label 4. You can bomb the floor there to get to the room below, but the map does not show that there is a passage (you actually have to go through there if you want to battle Kraid without the ice beam). Maybe you can connect those two rooms. :) Rob-in (talk) 23:34, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

I updated the map. Should be fixed, and you should see it once the image cache clears. Procyon 15:52, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

NiGHTS bosses[edit]

Nominate Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar for featured?[edit]

Long, long ago... you asked me if I wanted to propose for "featured guide" one of my Ultima guides. I finally completed the guide for Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar. Actually, since I just cleared the game four times in a row on four different platforms (Amiga, Master System, NES, Atari ST), I started getting a bit sick of it. Nevertheless, if there is an Ultima that deserves to be put under the limelight, this is the one. The player can learn actual philosophy from it! All the game invites the player to improve him/herself in real life. It is an absolutely unique game in history of video games. --Abacos (talk) 14:01, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
