  • So I was wondering recently about whether the four currently unconfirmed SSF2 characters deserved their own pages. I know those pages were removed a long time ago for not having SSF2 relevance, but what's complicating things here is Sasuke. He has a full page despite not appearing at all, and the rest of the unconfirmed cast is in the same boat right now, so either the four remaining characters should get pages or Sasuke should have his removed. I'm leaning towards the former, but what say you?

    • That was because Sasuke's posture was officially out and no word has been spoken for the rest. The admin that took the decision of taking out unconfirmed characters' pages is no longer part of the staff, and you're an admin now, so you may bring them back if you wish.

    • Ah, I see then. In that case I may hold back for now, since that might also mean that we'd have to treat the stages and items the same way.

  • I wanted to do a little bit of expansion on the Yeah Jam Fury game pages, but I wanted to ask for your thoughts on them.

    First off, do you think the level themes are deserving of their own sections (or even a new page)? I was thinking they were important because they have unique properties and are part of the Stage Builder and whatnot, but I didn't know if they were quite that important.

    And second, what should we do about the reception? UME would probably be easy to do because of the Steam reviews and actual game websites and a couple YouTubers reviewing it, but I don't know if we have anything to go off of with the original other than a Newgrounds rating and comments.

    • Excuse me for the late reply but I'm still not back at "full power".

      Because of the level themes for YJF, I originally envisioned an article titled Level, which would have explain each of these themes respectively and would also list some details for levels in the SSF games, I actually started working on the page but drop it because I just got tired and I hate creating articles leaving them as stubs. A page like that is welcome.

      Well, I wrote the reception sections from the ASMW episodes based on Newgrounds comments due to the lack of feedback, so with no other alternatives, you will have to rely on that.

    • Okay then, I guess I can create that page myself. Would that page list every level in all the games? And what other details could be listed for the SSF levels? Do you still have the draft of the page you scrapped?

      I think I can make that work then, I'll get to it.

  • Hey. A few current and past developers do not wish to be identified by their real names on the wiki and I understand that they've reached out a few times to try and get the OG pages moved over and no longer contain their names. If you could take care of this that would be awesome.

  • This is probably a question for the distant future (if at all), but how will we integrate the elements of the calculator games into the wiki? There are lots of them, and a good portion of them have characters and/or enemies, not to mention items like potions and gold, and gameplay elements like turn-based combat. How much would you expect them to add to existing (or their own) pages?

      Loading editor
    • Hmm, I'm unsure how we should handle this. On one hand, if the content is abundant, then, it makes perfect sense to add the full plethora onto the wiki with the respective articles, templates and categories; but on the other hand, the sole issue is that we are talking about the very unpopular calculator games, no one will be interested in contributing for that. MG is mainly known for the SSF games, moreover, we barely have editors interested contributing on YJF coverage. This means you'll have to handle that alone as I'll be unable to help you. I'll be fine whatever the way this is handled, so you have the last word.

    • I guess I’ll hold off for now, then. Most of the games I haven’t gotten into yet either don’t work or can’t be accessed, so the pages would probably stay incomplete for a long time. I’ll just keep efforts focused on the games without pages.

      But I also wanted to expand on my question, do you think we would group them together or separately on pages? What I mean is, on the Character page we separate most works and then bunch up the miscellaneous works. And then in the characters navbox we separate everything, but right now in the games navbox we have the calculator games bunched in their own category. There are a few series and in the list (RPG, Jharmen, High Stakes, Collided Worlds, S.I.M.), should those be treated the same way as other series? Or would they be miscellaneous?

  • Shall we make a region languages on every articles? If not, then that's okay if we don't need a languages link.

    • There are no other languages in the MG media aside English. Moreover, the McLeodGaming Wiki is currently available in said language only. I reported the messy MG Wiki in Spanish to close it down.

  • We may have using the wrong names for two of the YJF blocks. I haven't gotten official confirmation, but when I checked the YJF Discord, the emoticon for the Yellow Block actually labeled it as a "Yeah Block". And I don't know what source named the Lead Blocks, but when I checked the files of the original YJF they were coded as "Steel". Would you say we need to massively change everything?

    • Oh, huh. Well I do think it's worth noting but it looks more like it's trying to describe the blocks than make an official name for them. I think I trust more its name in the Discord emote.

    • Then do it the way you think it's more convenient, after all, soon you won't be in the need of asking stuff like this anymore.

  • Since I found out that Naruto and Bleach are owned by the studio company, Pierrot from the Wikipedia, so that means we can created that page? Oh, and also InuYasha are owned by Sunrise, too.

    • Those are only the anime proprietors, we also need who owns the manga rights (see? Dragon Ball: the original manga is owned by Bird Studio whereas the any anime adaptation is owned by Toei Animation). Also, I don't feel we currently need pages for non-video game companies.

  • I just got the new YJF game and beat the entire A-Side, and now I have a few questions regarding the future pages.

    1. Do we really need B-Side pages? Turns out the B-Side levels have the same names (with few minor exceptions) and structure as the A-Side levels, just with a few alterations to make the level harder. Could easily fit on the same page.

    2. On that note, do we need separate pages for the levels featured in both YJF games?

    3. I asked this before, should we take out the best scores on the levels? The problem I found with the first game's first level was that more than 5 pages of people shared 9th place so it's impossible to list everyone. And that will always change.

    4. Do we need separate pages for the Steam achievements, stickers, and Memory Book? Those all tie together; earning a Steam achievement unlocks a sticker with the same icon, and that sticker unlocks its respective Memory Book page. On that note, what about the Steam trading cards?

    5. Does the UME demo deserve its own page or should that just be mentioned on the regular game's page?

    • Oh, I see. BTW, mid helping me adding the World Entertainment Studios category to the YJF properties? Of course, the only exceptions are the levels and their elements (flags, mango, blocks, etc.)

  • It hit me recently that we don't have the pages (or even the names) for any of the TI-83+ games McLeodGaming used to have. I found 18 of the 28 documented online and I also have a TI emulator on my PC, could I make pages for them?

      Loading editor
    • The sole reason we don't have pages for the calculator games up to this point is because no one ever bothered to make them. I don't have a calculator or the required device to play them to make them myself, yet I have always thought we need to document, so as long as they are under the McLeodGaming brand, they deserve an article. Indeed, asking this was redundant, go ahead!

        Loading editor
    • I have another problem... some of these aren't actually games. They've all appeared as "83+ Games" on the website before, but some have the heading "Math Programs" instead, and a few others are labeled as games when they're just standard programs. The wiki has never had a page for a non-game program before, so... should they all be labelled as games? And should the non-games be italicized?

      Edit: Also, what about the Navbox? Should there be a separate one for the TI-83 games or should everything go under the standard MG Games box?

        Loading editor
    • If the program is not interactive, it shouldn't be labeled as a game (like The Cell, the sole interactive game of the site that could barely be classified as such). Programs don't normally have their titles italicized, so...

      TI-83 games can be on both the MG Games navbox and their own navbox.

    • Alright, noted. In that case, I created a new infobox for software, could you let me know if I'm missing something or have too much? http://mcleodgaming.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Infobox_software

  • I was considering tidying up the YJF level pages, but I feel like the level infobox should have a bit more to it. I think it should have a row detailing how many blocks are available in the level, and there should also be one for where the level takes place since that affects the background, music, and sometimes the visuals (not sure if that's what "world" is for but I also don't know what names for the worlds I should put). Also, the side row seems useful but it might be better if there was a more general row to fit the first game (Tutorial, Regular, Unused). Could you update the infobox to add this in, or is it just unnecessary?

      Loading editor
    • There was a row that detailed how many yellow blocks were found in a level; I took out that row because there are levels where it will be practically impossible to tell how many blocks are found (I don't truly think there are actually 5000 blocks in the level of the same name). I got to add that I constructed the infobox level also based on Super Mario levels actually (even though we cover none), that's why there is a row for world and alternate last/next level rows. You may show me a draft of how you actually think they should look so I can know exactly what's your propper idea.

        Loading editor
    • Ah, I didn't consider that about the blocks, though it might still be a good idea to at least list how many the player starts the level with. I imagined a row would list, say, "Underground" or "Factory" or "Space", maybe above the level number. And we'd also have a row above side that we'd use one of depending on the game. Something along the lines of...

      |name     = 
      |image    = 
      |symbol   = 
      |caption  = 
      |game     = 
      |universe = 
      |world    = 
      |location = Underground
      |number   = 
      |type     = Regular
      |side     = 
      |time     = 
      |note     = 
      |lastalt  = 
      |last     = 
      |next     = 
      |nextalt  = 
      }}
      

      (Also, unrelated note... should we take out the best scores on the levels? The problem I found with the first level was that more than 5 pages of people shared 9th place so it's impossible to list everyone)
