LinkEdit

Err...what Brigade link? C A T U S E 05:02, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

What's now called "Final Fantasy: Airborne Brigade". --Shockstorm (talk) 05:04, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
k, on it C A T U S E 05:07, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

As I'm sure someone has told you before, it's okay to fix links in userspace, but generally not so much to fix grammar. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 04:36, December 17, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I decided to correct some misspellings on a single userpage. I honestly can't believe you would take the time to write a message about that. Don't message me again if you're just going to waste my time and harass me. --Shockstorm (talk) 06:19, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

GalleriesEdit

Reason for 2 galleries on the EoT Armor page (you'll see this in other pages too) is because they're for each specific section. Keeps from having one GIANT gallery clogging up the page.

Strange...I remember that too. Probably was in the Articles to Move Topic (probably in the archives of that now). I'd suggest looking in there and see if you can find it in there. But yeah, they need split as they're 2 separate abilities. Not sure how we're going to handle anything that's not named those 2, especially if they're Blue Magic...

Say, would you be willing to work on the Body Armor section for the EoT scrolls for me while I work on the Head Armor? It'll make that go by doubly fast, if anything else @_@;;
Ok, in a bit. --Shockstorm (talk) 20:45, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

TALK - 20:49, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

Much obliged. Do try to keep the format like it is on the page (requires some editing, but not too much) to keep it consistent if you can. The way the page is set up is different than how it is on the person's blog page thingie (mostly the annotations being spelt out amongst other things).


Also, about that Dragon Tusk and Whale Tusk, you think they should go to Dragon Whisker/Whale Whisker, respectively? I'm honestly not sure on those...though Dragon Tusk IS a spear, much like Dragon Whisker (has Whale Whisker been a spear ever? I...actually cannot remember right now...).

Well, there's already a link to Dragon Whisker, but I think they're similar enough. As for Whale Whisker, it only seems to have been a rod/pole. --Shockstorm (talk) 20:51, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

Ah...probably should link to that then (I...don't remember what else links there from the weapons page). Also, all that's left is the Body Armor, so that's up to you! After that, that page will finally be done~

If you could help (I'm busy doing other things today so I can't do much on this myself), can you add things from the Unused Image categories to either their appropriate pages or to the Image Hosting Pages of mine? The Artniks stuff, I don't know what we're doing with, so either add those to the appropriate pages and/or Image Hosting Pages both. Same with the LoV stuff. That is, if you can kindly do so. ^^;

Re: MovingEdit

The Help:Tags and Disambiguation Pages page says that "(The) Final Fantasy" is to be omitted when tagging pages to the Legend series. Also, I think I started that rename&fix task pretty late at night and forgotten to continue it. Also, I couldn't move as many pages as I wanted to as I don't have the rights to move like 6+ pages in a very short interval of time, so if you were fixing link after me then sorry. I guess I'll continue then.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 23:03, February 6, 2013 (UTC)

When linking to something game-specific link to game-specific pagesEdit

Forum:When linking to something game-specific link to game-specific pages. It is appropriate to link the ListOf pages since they are more immediately relevant to the user. JBed (talk) 13:35, June 11, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, that's your opinion. Thanks for the unsolicited advice. --Shockstorm (talk) 19:29, June 11, 2013 (UTC)
Why yes, yes it is my opinion. The forum also sheds a bit of light on other people's opinions on the matter. After all, it is also your opinion that we always link to the recurring option whenever possible. That's not official policy either.
I would love to prevent potential edit wars. If you have any thoughts on the matter you can post it in that forum. Maybe we can make something official policy! JBed (talk) 20:03, June 11, 2013 (UTC)

Redirects and mod rights Edit

Sorry about making all that extra work for you, I could've sworn I fixed it months ago >_< Well, I think I found the problem, so it shouldn't happen again.

By the way, do you have the ability to move pages without leaving a redirect, have the 'rollback' button next to edits in Recent Changes, and the ability to move files? I was logged in as Intangir Bot changing some things and noticed that even though he isn't a mod, he can do all those things. But I don't know if this is because he's a bot or because Wikia's herpaderping. C A T U S E 18:27, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, it's alright, I don't really mind. And I don't have any of those things, so idk what's with Intangir. --Shockstorm (talk) 21:16, June 16, 2013 (UTC)
Alright, so Wikia gave extra rights to bots. Thanks. C A T U S E 23:30, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

Gargoyle Edit

Sorry about those two, I am meaning to just replace the old ones with new versions rather than upload new images, missed those ones. Thanks for putting them on the pages and adding back the bestiaries. Drake Clawfang (talk) 05:16, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

Np, that's what I was thinking. I think I got all the non-undead (skeleton/zombie) images you've uploaded, and I'm putting them on the List of Enemies page. I'll leave the undead to you or Kelt since I have trouble identifying them. --Shockstorm (talk) 05:19, June 29, 2013 (UTC)

Rare game modelsEdit

All the rare game enemies share the same model with the one they are "evolved forms" of. The only one who doesn't is the Urutan Exile, but in the end it's just an ordinary Urutan, only bigger and with no cape. As for FFX models, it's the same thing. The reason is: why create two models that look exactly the same if we don't use them differently? --Pmbarbieri (talk) 10:57, July 8, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, that's what I was kinda thinking :) --Shockstorm (talk) 17:53, July 8, 2013 (UTC)

FF12 Edit

Apologies for making you do clean-up, I derped a bit obviously. :p Drake Clawfang (talk) 17:03, July 11, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, I don't mind. I'm not sure which we should keep: "Reaper-ffxii.png" or "XII mors render.png". They're likely the same monster (Mors iirc is the Italian name for the rare game derivation), but the colors are different. Edit: Actually, just checked, Mors = Reaper on the Italian wiki. --Shockstorm (talk) 17:10, July 11, 2013 (UTC)
They've both got merits, your images in general have the visual effects the raw models don't (I haven't replaced several for that reason, they're better with such effects regardless of image quality), mine are more crisp. Either one could stay, up to you which. Drake Clawfang (talk) 17:37, July 11, 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations Edit

You've been added to the acknowledgements list on the staff! Judging from the other acknowledged users, you may put {{Staff Member}} on your page if you so wish. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 01:24, July 19, 2013 (UTC)

Oops! Thank you! Edit

Did I seriously forget to do all the relinking when I moved the Katana article? Aww man. Thanks for doing that, it honestly slipped my mind. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 08:24, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, it's alright. I've been doing some of the weapon types relinking when I see 'em, since it's not really something that could be done with a bot. --Shockstorm (talk) 08:43, July 21, 2013 (UTC)


Thanks, I'll do my best to provide as much as I can to this wiki, specially in FFIX articles as it's my favourite game. Thaks for the spells correction, and yes, + spells are -ra spells, as well as ++ are -ga. {{SUBST:User:OtakuJuanma/Firma}} 21:33, July 26, 2013 (UTC)

Of course, it's a game I've been playing since the beta for the 1.0 variance ^^; and it just bothered me that next to none of the information sites actually had that information. Such is even important to those who only RP around the lore of it, but hey, nice to meet you I suppose. Embergale (talk) 07:07, July 28, 2013 (UTC)

A Big TaskEdit

ACRudeBox
Xenomic
TALK - 01:37, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

Since you seem to have a lot of spare time on your hands and seem to prefer to do this kind of thing, if you can check each of the pages for the Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade abilities sections and go to each disambig and fix the disambigs to properly link to the right page, that'd be great.


Example would be Shot, as the Brigade link does not link to where Shot is (due to the wiki apparently putting the ability lists on subpages which wasn't a bad idea, but left a looooot of broken disambig links that lead to the parent page and not the proper page).

Sorry, can't. --Shockstorm 01:50, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks :3Edit

Hey, thanks for leaving that FAQ for me. Can you believe I stupidly and accidentally created a page named "Melchior Merrowson", thinking I was editing my Profile itself? =.= Thanks to whoever deleted that! Sorry! D: --LuvLuvG (talk) 08:45, September 27, 2013 (UTC)

It was Some Color Mage. Don't worry, he doesn't bite new users if you feel you have to apologise to him :P we've all started out, been there, done that. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 08:56, September 27, 2013 (UTC)

FFIV ImagesEdit

I noticed you have moved many FFIV iOS images to the Category:Final Fantasy IV Mobile Location Images but I don't think that's what the category was for...I think it's for the Japan-only cellphone version from eons ago, the version that looks like this. The FFIV images really are a mess though, I can't tell how to begin organising them.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 00:57, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, I wasn't aware of that. I thought mobile just meant iOS, so I think I moved them to standardize the category names. Sorry if that complicated things. Not sure how to organize them either. --Shockstorm (talk) 01:50, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

XIV Enemy Moving Edit

Glad to have someone helping me with it all! At least there's not so much relinking to do with most of these compared to other articles I've moved before. Don't forget we always have the bots if you can't be bothered to fix the links yourself, or just bug me. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 18:29, November 28, 2013 (UTC)

No problem. And thanks :p --Shockstorm 19:45, November 28, 2013 (UTC)
Just a quick heads up though. Could you look at Forum:Articles to Move Topic and remove any off there you've moved? Lets us keep more of an eye on proceedings and I've had to take off a lot already that people have forgotten to remove. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 20:16, November 28, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah I didn't forget, I was just waiting a bit. But I'll do it now. --Shockstorm 20:17, November 28, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks very much! Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 20:19, November 28, 2013 (UTC)


Hey there, late Edit

Hey there Shockstorm. I'm a little late here, you wrote in my talk page two years ago and I was cheking my wikia pages and read your message. A little bit late haha but thanks for the welcoming, I suppose. GestahlianChocobot (talk) 09:56, March 12, 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome. I always have time for a fellow Toriyama hater :p --Shockstorm (talk) 22:55, March 12, 2014 (UTC)

Wait what? Fellow? Really? I'm not alone after all. GestahlianChocobot (talk) 04:43, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, not a big fan of Toriyama, after FFXIII and XIII-2 and all. --Shockstorm (talk) 04:44, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

I understand. I'm not a fan of Toriyama since he was born. GestahlianChocobot (talk) 04:49, March 13, 2014 (UTC)


Bravely Default Edit

Hey there Shockstorm. I don't know if you are admin or mod here, but I was checking out some information about Bravely Default here. I was wondering, why does the "Final Fantasy" wiki have Bravely Default information here? I mean, it's related to the franchise, but it's not even part of it. It's like if we would have Kingdom Hearts information here, just because it's from Square Enix. It's my opinion only, I know, I was just sharing it with you. What do you think? I honestly don't think that's appropriate for the wiki, since it has like nothing to do with the franchise. But as I said, it's only my opinion, I was sharing it with you. I joined the wiki like two years ago, but I never did do anything here until a few days ago. I only want to help improve the wiki. GestahlianChocobot (talk) 06:56, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

I haven't really thought about it or commented on it. If you'd like you can mention it on the Scope talk page, since that describes what games the wiki should cover. Apparently it was discussed in the past here and here. I don't really mind having extra stuff related to the franchise, even if it's not a part of it. For example we have some info and images on Final Fantasy characters appearing in the Mario Hoops game. Anyways I'm not a mod/admin, but anyone can start a discussion on policies and stuff, so if you're interested feel free to do so :) --Shockstorm (talk) 19:59, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

All right pal, thanks for the info. GestahlianChocobot (talk) 01:45, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

No worries! I'm very knowledgable about FFX (apart from Blitzball); I'm considered one of the top players on GameFAQs and have a series of youtube videos to prove it (search NSGNSND if you're interested). =)

I generally get bored quite quickly of going through and editing pages, but I'm happy to fix a few things here and there, and to provide info that's useful to other editors.

I know some details about FF7 and FF8 as well, but not even nearly to the same extent that I do for FFX. HayanNinja (talk) 07:23, April 3, 2014 (UTC)


Some Line Fixing Edit

ACRudeBox
Xenomic
TALK - 00:56, April 6, 2014 (UTC)
So it was brought to my attention from a friend of mine that the descriptors that many of the Final Fantasy VI enemy pages uses from the PSX version should not read "Playstation One" as that was something entirely different. If you're up to it, could you go and fix that to read something like..."Playstation" or "Final Fantasy Anthology" or something? There's quite a few of them (and more than enough to boost your edit count further!), so...up to you.
I'd be willing to do so, but I want to make sure that just saying "PlayStation" is accurate. I'm assuming PlayStation One refers to this thing? If you wouldn't mind just confirming that (replacing PlayStation One with just PlayStation), I'd appreciate it. --Shockstorm 01:06, April 6, 2014 (UTC)
ACRudeBox
Xenomic
TALK - 01:09, April 6, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, that's the PSOne (which I didn't even know was an actual thing until now). Either "Playstation" or "Final Fantasy Anthology" works for replacing aye. Whichever you think works best (probably just Playstation in this case?)

A Task for you~Edit

ACRudeBox
Xenomic
TALK - 08:23, April 29, 2014 (UTC)
I've already done FFI-IX (including Crisis Core), so if you could finish up the rest for me (bar Crystal Chronicles as the names for abilities there aren't named really), could you finish up the redirecting and disambigging of enemy abilities starting from FFX? I already placed stuff on the To-Do List page, and I'm not sure what all games may be missing disambigging/redirecting of enemy abilities since I started at FFI but...yeah! If you can do that, that'd be great! In all honesty, I'm kinda tired of doing it after 3-4 days straight. Not as fun as actually making articles to me, that's for sure. x_x;;

I remember doing a bunch of those games (X thru XIII-2) a while ago, so they should be near completion. I'll check later today to make sure I got all them, though. As for XIII and XIII-2, there may still be some enemy abilities that haven't been recorded yet, though. --Shockstorm 13:34, April 29, 2014 (UTC)

I believe Xenomic is working on a complete enemy abilities page based on the UCG (the most comprehensive and accurate source of enemy data so far).

EDIT: Nevermind, didn't notice who posted the first comment... or that the page is up. xD HayanNinja (talk) 14:48, April 29, 2014 (UTC)

TALK - 07:17, April 30, 2014 (UTC)
Already decided to wrap up FFX since I started that the other night. So that means from X-2 on up (which I'm only adding to disambigs, not making redirects this time) needs done. I know there's stuff from X-2 not recorded yet, since I'm sure we don't have all of the English names for the HD remake only stuff...

You're on your own there, sorry. I do believe a lot of FFX-2 mechanics data has been documented (though probably not the English names of new content, as you say), but I myself don't really know anything in-depth about X-2. HayanNinja (talk) 10:38, April 30, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Welcome Back Edit

Thank you! Yep, I love LR passionately so will certainly do my bit to help out. And good as I also use to panic about that and frankly I'm sure I've lost count of the amount of red links on in my user-space. COOLAWITS ~TALK | YFC | XVI | DQFF~ 23:41, May 26, 2014 (UTC)

Cactuer isn't a Type-0 enemyEdit

The fan-translation calls these enemies "Cactuar" and "Sabotender". Only random places on the wiki call it "Cactuer". JBed (talk) 02:37, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

Lol, damn. I remember thinking about asking Xeno and people about the accuracy of the translations he relied on for the Articles to Move topic. I should've thought about that :< --Shockstorm 02:39, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

Really? Edit

At least have the decency to let me know on my talk page instead of leaving me to check the history. It's late and I'm tired, and it produced the same result, nothing broken, just a minor slip up. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 23:37, June 13, 2014 (UTC)

Why the hell should I do that? I mean, you barely contribute and act incredibly arrogant anyways. Now please go away, thanks. --Shockstorm 23:40, June 13, 2014 (UTC)
My reasons for not contributing recently are due to the fact I, A) have been working a hell of a lot and B), am in the middle of a house move, which you knew, as we did converse in the IRC, back when we both had a little clawed-back respect for each other. I didn't have to remind you, but I won't sit by and let you insult my periods of inactivity; to be honest it's none of your business how much or how little I decide to be around here. You yourself have had periods when you have not been here at all, so don't try that one with me. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 23:48, June 13, 2014 (UTC)
Lol, I don't care how much you do or not. Problem is that half your contributions are posting incredibly trivial and nonconstructive stuff to talk pages (like now) or scaring off new contributors. But it's incredibly idiotic to make a huge deal about me fixing your mistake. Why don't you just accept that you made a mistake - everyone gets reverted now and then. Now please quit bothering me with this nonsense and at least start pretending to be an admin. --Shockstorm 00:00, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
I like my talk page, and it needed a few tweaks to be up to date. You're calling me out for something you've since apologised for, so I'm going to ignore that. I simply requested you post on my talk page instead, as I was actually just about to go to bed and spotted you'd left that in the edit summary. No harm done, but this could have been avoided had you not been extremely rude to me for little reason.
Also, if I want to be an admin right now, I have four buttons under my control. Which one do you think I want to use on you? Good day sir, and Yuan would like a word when you are next available on the IRC. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 00:14, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
Lol, you're threatening to block me because I dared to criticize you? Real mature. Anyways, every post you make here continues to demonstrate why you shouldn't be an admin, so feel free to continue. Also, I'm not going to let people threaten me in private - if they want to complain about something, they can do it on my talk page (where there's a log/history). Oh, and I apologized because I wanted to be nice, not because you weren't wrong (and you still are). --Shockstorm 00:19, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

Sigh. Seriously? Do you care about contributing or not? Do you care about productivity or not? Do I have to say this again? COMMENT ON CONTENT, NOT ON CONTRIBUTOR. What you are doing is the precise opposite of productivity. "HURR DURR YOU NEVER CONTRIBUTE oh because you have a busy IRL but I DONT CARE LUL IM STILL GONNA BE A PRICK BECAUSE HURR DURR IM RIGHT". Correcting people's mistakes is necessary, not arrogant. Like I don't understand how you manage to go from being helpful to being a dick so quickly like this. It makes no sense.--FFVI Kefka Palazzo Sprite iOS Technobliterator TC 12:13, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
