  • Could someone delete thislink to "Raid on Kohlingen" article was present here article for me? No one but me has edited it, so it won't be missed. --CrappyScrap (talk) 18:22, July 10, 2014 (UTC)
Danke! --CrappyScrap (talk) 22:26, July 10, 2014 (UTC)

Can someone do a speedy deletion of thislink to "First Gestahlian Campaign" article was present here article for me? I was way too hasty when I wrote it and as a result it's factually wrong on a number of points higher than what can be repared. --CrappyScrap (talk) 04:54, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

Y BTW, you can request a speedy delete with {{SD}}. {{Delete}} implies it's up for discussion. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 07:16, September 16, 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm wondering whether we need all the screenshots that are currently in Uncategorised Images. They're all from the newest FFXV trailer. But the uploader has not responded to my request to license and categorise and do we actually need these? I don't know enough about XV to know where to put them. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 16:50, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

Could someone delete Sage's Surplice, that is now a disambig, and then move "Sage's Surplice (Armor)" back into "Sage's Surplice". (See Sage's Surplice (Armor) talk page for discussion on this.)Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 19:53, February 20, 2015 (UTC)

Merge "Template talk:Theatrhythm"'s history with "Template talk:TFF", since TFF is the proper template name now. --Shockstorm 06:36, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

Merge "Endure (Status)" with "Vigilance (Status)", as the latter is the correct name. --Shockstorm 02:36, May 3, 2014 (UTC)

Y "Vigilance (Status)" was a redirect with no prior history so merge not needed, move is done. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 00:54, May 5, 2014 (UTC)

Could someone merge Maduin (Summon) to Maduin (Final Fantasy VI) as all summon appearances are in reference to his character from FFVI? They would just go to "other appearances", but we would like to preserve the talk page of Maduin (Summon) and not just delete it.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 19:03, March 6, 2015 (UTC)

Urgh, Fenrir, do not copy/paste an article to a different name as it messes up the page history. Merge incoming. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 21:04, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Somebody want to protect Northern Cave (Final Fantasy VII), some pointless edit warring there lately.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 15:30, February 25, 2015 (UTC)

Oh.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 18:15, February 25, 2015 (UTC)


What did I do as wrong as SQEX (talk) to warrant a block? This ban reeks animosity. You blocked me because I edited the Hiroyuki Ito page, yet all I did was add important hotlinks that were missing from the page. Go and check my additions. Further still, after I solely reduced the info on the page after everybody said it should be reduced (check the Talk Page for the discussion), a user named Mask no Oni (talk) has greatly expanded the 'Game Design' section after my reduction. Despite this, you've given no warning or penalisation to that user. So why do I get blocked for adding virtually nothing to the page and he doesn't?

Also, you claim I warned to not edit the page, but never once was a warning given. I was never told if I ever edit the Hiroyuki Ito page again, I would get blocked. Not once. If it was, I'd have remembered and known better. In actuality, all you did was put a lock on the page and say it was "to prevent edit warriors from pretending to be anons on this page". No mention was made anywhere, not even on my Talk Page, that if I edit the page it will result in a ban.

Therefore, I'm rightfully appealing this ban. If no warning was given, how would I know I was stepping out of line by merely adding correct hotlinks to the page? Even if you had given me the warning to no longer edit the page, I'd have questioned why such a harsh rule was being applied solely to me, especially seeing as I was the one that streamlined the page when everybody was whining about it being to bloated. Yet, after doing this, a user Mask no Oni (talk) has recently added back info that everybody was whining should be reduce, yet you didn't do shit to his account. No block, no warning, nothing...

I'm seriously confused and surprised by you actions here. An explanation is needed and I will hear it. SQEX FF (talk) 06:26, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

You were, in fact, told that if you edited Ito's page again, it would be treated as vandalism. We are quite frankly sick of any and all shit coming from that page and the only reason it's not fully protected is that most of it was being generated by one user, namely you, and because of that, we elected to go straight to blocking. There is no warning given to Mask no Oni because page bloating is only against the rules if being done excessively/disruptingly, and frankly, I don't see the problem with what he added anyway.
Your appeal is denied, and your new account is banned for ban evasion. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 06:39, January 9, 2014 (UTC)
Welp, I give up. I'm done with this community. No point hanging around a place you're heavily disliked. It's not like I'm paid to contribute here, after all. There's much better things to do with my time. 06:54, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

I've just had a look through the edits Mask no Oni made, which in fact are just two small paragraphs and some info moving. Not exactly a great expansion. I'm sure you thought you were doing well, but it does pay to listen to the staff and fellow users. Hopefully you've realised that. Your SQEX account will have its ban lifted in three months. SQEX FF, never. We do not approve of ban skipping and sockpuppeting here. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 12:37, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

This anon is annoying and have serious mind issues. Also, aggressive as they come.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 14:06, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

Bluh C A T U S E 15:18, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

Special:Contributions/ has been changing J2e information for weeks now to what looks like more recent ports and has not responded to any of my requests to provide sources or proof. He has made extensive changes to the Final Fantasy IV/Translations article and I'm questioning whether or not it's good faith. EDIT- I'm not even joking, I'm downloading the fan translation now and will play it to see what's right. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 18:42, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

They tried to redo the edit on Neo Exdeath (see here), and tried adding one of his alternate names to the Dissidia page; I decided to play it safe and revert it, since although I have little experience with translations, I'm certain they intended his name to be translated as Exdeath that time around. Lord Grammaticus (talk) 20:01, January 9, 2014 (UTC)
Fae has blocked after I requested it on IRC. I am unsure about the fan translation edits now because I've found out there are two versions of the J2e, of which I have the 10th anniversary addition which appears to be older. I could have been wrong about all his changing, but edit warring over names is unacceptable. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 20:04, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Requesting a second block of this anon. Despite Fae's instruction to him, after blocking for two hours as a warning, to inform a staff member of his sources regarding the fan translation changes, he has returned and continued to edit the translations and ignoring my messages, of which I have left one more. This is getting ridiculous. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 18:36, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

Y 1 day block should hopefully get his attention. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 21:07, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

He's back, now editing the RPGOne section of the Final Fantasy VI/Translations article. Best be keeping an eye on this. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 12:39, January 22, 2014 (UTC)

You have to be kidding me, he was editing yesterday and I didn't catch it. That's it, I warned he'd be getting a ban off me this time and it will come if I see this again. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 13:17, February 3, 2014 (UTC)


Request to keep an eye on this guy; he seems to be constantly insulting users through edit summaries and using vile words like "Retarded". How he's been allowed to get away with this is beyond me. I've personally only just noticed him and looked through his edit history. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 09:00, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Oh boy, what a yawn. If he keeps it up, block him, but (at least for the moment) he's making productive edits. :/ C A T U S E 12:53, August 8, 2014 (UTC)


There. Archived.Edit

Now next time ask on the noticeboard itself so we can see it even when we inevitably forget to check the talk page. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 21:12, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

Oi, I last asked weeks ago! I would have asked here if I hadn't been apprehensive about making a brand new section. And like anyone ever uses this anyway. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 22:15, January 8, 2014 (UTC)
It gets used! Sometimes. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 02:13, January 9, 2014 (UTC)
Seems the IRC is more common for requests now, particularly blocks, they really do get answered faster there. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 02:35, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Last comment in the block sectionEdit

I feel like if the person had actually applied that "better things to do" logic when they actually needed it most instead of trying to "salavge" some semblance of victory by appearing indifferent and getting the last word, they might never have been blocked to begin with...

That said, will the block of the IPs they last used (if any) affect the block on their main account? I've seen people have their blocks lengthened for being similarly persistent, and I forget if that's how things are done here. Lord Grammaticus (talk) 07:55, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Eh, if he's as gone as he says he is, we won't need to apply any IP blocks this time.
It's typical (but not required) to make blocks longer for repeat offenders, but beyond that there's no guideline on how long to block someone. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 08:20, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Adding the Theatrhythm sequel to the topnavEdit

Could someone add Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call under the "Future Releases" at the top navigation.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 20:49, February 21, 2014 (UTC)

Argh, when I asked people in the IRC if there were any games I was missing when I updated it last time, they said no. :| In any case, Y -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 21:15, February 21, 2014 (UTC)

Videos not appearingEdit

I'm not seeing any videos on any articles, just the coloured boxes they sit in. I've tested out a few of the URLs and they're working fine, just nothing is showing up. Is anyone else having this issue? Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 18:51, February 25, 2014 (UTC)

I'm having this issue on Chrome but not for IE9. Monterossa (talk) 20:31, February 25, 2014 (UTC)
I'm also using Chrome. Maybe the browser is having a problem. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 20:32, February 25, 2014 (UTC)
Videos're working for me on Firefox.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 22:58, February 25, 2014 (UTC)
It seems like Google just fixed their Chrome several days ago. Monterossa (talk) 17:36, March 18, 2014 (UTC)

Future ReleasesEdit

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster should be moved from Future Releases to Latest Games.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 17:05, March 18, 2014 (UTC)

Y -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 11:52, March 19, 2014 (UTC)


Can someone update the featured article if Tia isn't around atm. :)Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 15:56, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry my sweet, I'm on it. I haven't had access to my lapop in the last few days. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 16:46, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

Future ReleasesEdit

Final Fantasy VII G-Bike, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and Final Fantasy Agito should probably be added.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 09:05, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

Y, Y, and Y, although someone might want to check the punctuation on G-Bike's name, SE tend to avoid using colons if they can get away with it. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 09:51, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

Future Releases 2Edit

Can someone add Final Fantasy Explorers to Future Releases. :)Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 16:12, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Added, I think? Doesn't seem to be updating, but I definitely added it.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 18:39, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
Shows up for me. Thanks. :)Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 19:42, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Top NavEdit

It's fuxed up somehow and now contains links to most popular scans and most recent blogs, instead of the useful links it used to have.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 12:20, July 18, 2014 (UTC)

It's odd. I just edited it and it's fixed for me. And my edit is to do what I thought you would suggest anyway (add Record Keepers) :D--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 12:25, July 18, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. :D I haven't been keeping up so I don't know what Record Keepers even is!Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 19:30, July 18, 2014 (UTC)
It did that to me when I wasn't signed in...just like how RC gives weird out of date edits when you're not signed in. I think wikia's cache is borked somehow. C A T U S E 12:33, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

Top Navs AgainEdit

Theatrhythm Curtain Call should go from future releases to recent releases, and the "most visited articles" doesn't seem to work atm.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 16:23, October 1, 2014 (UTC) EDIT: Also Record Keeper is out I think, so probably should move from future releases.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 18:30, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

Record Keeper is out? Huh, ok. Done.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 18:39, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and Final Fantasy Legends: Toki no Suishō should be added to future releases.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 17:16, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

Y More rushed spinoffs added successfully. C A T U S E 18:57, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

FFT grid images used improperly Edit

For example, File:At the Gate of Limberry Castle OH.png.

The images were created by user Xifanie of, rather than ripped from the game, so they can't use the SECopyright fair use claim, since it's a derivative work. As a side note, the image is not a low-resolution version, but rather was probably ripped via a screencap and then edited in Paint (given the white margins).

At the least, the image pages should give proper credit. Maybe clip them properly and don't display them stretched. --Raijinili (talk) 08:41, December 13, 2014 (UTC)

While we here at the staff noticeboard appreciate you letting us know this, the staff noticeboard is usually for things that need admin activity to be resolved, which this decidedly does not. I would bring this up on one of the image's talk pages, or in a forum post, personally. Jimcloud 12:42, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry about that. It was the first thing I saw in the sidebar that seemed appropriate. --Raijinili (talk) 03:16, December 14, 2014 (UTC)
If a pic uses any game assets in making it it is SE copyright, but if everything is created from scratch copyright is to the creator. Personally, I have aimed to put info on where I got the file to the file page if it is more than just a simple screenshot even if I think it is SE copyright file.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 17:52, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
Moot point now, but: It's not SE copyright. SE does not have complete rights to it, since there is originality (for example, the layout and presentation) that wasn't by SE. Beside that, it's not fair use. --Raijinili (talk) 03:16, December 14, 2014 (UTC)
I could've sworn I got those images from Caves of Narshe, but looking at their Maps pages they're no longer there, so maybe my memory is just bad? Also, back then, we didn't have a lot of copyright templates so SECopyright was just the generic "slap this on everything" template.
Anyways, the way I set up {{FFT BI}} comes off as sloppy and unprofessional even without accounting for copyright problems, especially when we have the Map extension up and running, or could just generate Dissidia-like maps for Lua or something. What I'll do for now is move them all to {{OCopyright}} crediting Xifanie's work (though as Kelt says, they are still SE-copyright), and sometime soon redesign the Tactics maps.
Sorry about that. C A T U S E 18:48, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. (Xifanie says she herself made those images.) --Raijinili (talk) 03:16, December 14, 2014 (UTC)

Uncategorised ImagesEdit

Every time I come back there's more cluttering up this space, and we're currently debating on the IRC whether to actually keep all the images I've just been deleting, the ones that have been sat there since the 13th and apparently some users said to keep but have done nothing about moving them. Can I ask that maybe I'm not the only one to be checking and clearing it out? I'm often gone for several weeks at a time now meaning they're just sat there and users aren't being told where they went wrong with uploading.
