Dragon Ball Z: Idainaru Dragon Ball Densetsu[edit]

Please do not revert cleanup changes such as the ones I made to Dragon Ball Z: Idainaru Dragon Ball Densetsu. I'm OK with you going against the standard whitespace formatting for the {{Infobox}} template and adding extraneous whitespace, as you did it as part of a legitimate edit, and it's up to personal preference.

What you also accomplished with that edit, though, was to revert the categorisation changes I made, which is not good. Any of the {{rd}}-style templates will automatically categorise an article in the appropriate date categories, so there is no need to add them manually. Your removal of the extraneous series category was a good catch, though. I've reverted some of your changes, but kept your whitespace changes, since that seems to be your style. Thanks for contributing, and make sure to leave me a message if you've got any questions about any of the changes I've made, or the style guidelines on StrategyWiki. :-) --DrBob (talk) 23:01, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Footer Nav links[edit]

Hi, I'm not sure what the Table of Contents looked like at the time, but your original links in the Footer Nav on X-Blades/Temple in the Sky didn't follow it. I changed them to reflect the layout of the current ToC, so they may need to be changed again. If so, then we need to change the layout of Table of Contents to accurately reflect the actual navigation of the guide. Just a heads up in case things need to be shuffled around. Thanks, — najzereT 19:52, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

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:X-Blades images]]. The image policy is viewable here, and contains all the information you'll need to categorise future uploads. --najzereT 07:16, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Also, I deleted the European box art you uploaded, since it's a duplicate of an existing file (which already on the main page of the guide). In the future, don't bother uploading different regions' box art unless the art actually changes. The Japanese cover you uploaded is exactly the same as the European one, with Japanese text. It's just redundant. Thanks, — najzereT 07:16, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

First of all, there's nothing wrong with console-specific box art; as I mentioned earlier we're interested in the art not the system name on it. Second, if you want to replace an existing image, go to the image file and click "Upload new version". As a side note, are you saving the box art and converting it to PNG from JPEG? If so, I'd suggest you don't, as for complex images like these, JPEG is a much more efficient filetype. You can see that the box art I uploaded is much smaller in file size. PNG format is good for large swaths of a single color, transparency and clean lines of demarcation between colors. I hope you take what I said about not bothering to upload multiple versions of box art if the art isn't changing to heart for any future uploads you're planning. — najzereT 07:32, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Okay I understand that you don't want to show preference, but if you look around the site you'll see that we just use whatever we can find with no bias whatsoever. We really don't need multiple covers for Japanese box art and multiple covers for PAL box art if the art isn't changing. What I'm trying to say is that we're interested in the art on the box, not representing every single permutation of region/console/text style. You have to ask yourself what benefit does the reader get from seeing the exact same image multiple times with different text on it or a different ratings symbol? We try to avoid redundancy of any sort on the wiki; I hope you can understand that. — najzereT 08:02, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Something like a censored and uncensored version seems like an acceptable difference; it actually lets a reader know something. I have no problem with putting both on the page. Thanks for clarifying your intentions. — najzereT 08:11, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

You're talking about two Japanese covers, one censored and one not, correct? I'm saying that's a pretty big distinction and it would be good to have both. If that's not what you're saying, then just make sure the art is different from the ones already on the page. — najzereT 08:32, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Don't forget the guide-specific category when uploading images, i.e. [[Category:Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy images]]. — najzereT 21:44, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Headings[edit]

Make sure you start headings at ==Level 2== instead of ===Level 3===. Thanks, — najzereT 12:15, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

X-Blades ToC[edit]

Hi, is it possible to group some of the pages currently in the guide together in some way? They are mainly just a paragraph or two each, so if they can be grouped into different areas, or stages of the game or something, it would be nice to combine some of the pages and reduce the links on the ToC. — najzereT 22:07, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

TMNT translations[edit]

Sure. I was very interested when you posted it as German, and as I was looking over the text I was excited because I first thought it was Norwegian, however Google translations were a little off. As I was translating one of the words, I could not find a single Norwegian to English translation of it, so I tried a Danish one, and it worked out perfectly. Then I went back and used Google translations successfully. Lucky me! Hopefully it doesn't turn out to be some other Germanic derived language that I'm not familiar with enough to separate from the rest. Anyways, I've gone ahead and completed your request. Cheers (it was a very painful process)! --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 05:20, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

X-Blades Japanese Cover.PNG deletion[edit]

Hi, Image:X-Blades Japanese Cover.PNG has been marked for deletion. Please feel free to discuss this deletion request on the file's talk page if you disagree. Thanks, — najzereT 23:13, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Image credits[edit]

When uploading images, please provide a URL or name of the author (whoever scanned the box art or flyer or whatever). It helps us to maintain our good will towards all contributors, such as those outside of StrategyWiki, and identify if our members are providing original content.
