Tales of Destiny II vs. Tales of Destiny 2

I just changed it without realizing that it was done once already. If people would like to talk, that is fine. I just want people to make it clear to me; what do we want Tales of Destiny II to describe? Tales of Eternia or the second installment in the Tales of Destiny universe starring Kyle? I use Tales of Destiny II for Eternia because that's how it's written on the game case; Tales of Destiny 2 for the Kyle one because that's what the box art says.

Questions, comments, etc.? Jayce

The actual logo for ToD2j is "Tales of Destiny 2" -- the American localization of Tales of Eternia is "Tales of Destiny II" -- thus, it should be "Tales of Destiny 2" --ChronoSpark 23:36, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

News section on the talk page

I think I might be appropriate to include a news of recent changes section on the main page. I'll be helping out with what I can soon.--Imaginationac 01:17, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Purpose of the wiki

I'm not clear as to what the purpose of this Wiki is exactly. Anyone who knows should probably put it up on the main page.--Imaginationac 02:11, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

I found the purpose on the Wikia Central article on Aselia. Will add later today, after I sleep! --Imaginationac 08:24, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Table the list of games

It might look better if the list of games, fandom, and anime was grouped in a table. I tried doing that myself, but my table creation skills are not up to snuff.--Imaginationac 03:24, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

I created the table. Yeah! If you like to change the style, formatting, or categories, please discuss here first. --Imaginationac 20:15, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
Kinda late, but whatever. I changed it (specifically the Fandom part to "other") the other day to make it more accurate. Tempest isn't a main game, and Tales of Eternia Online didn't fit into any of the categories before the edit (it, too, was under main games). I also don't think ToS: KoR is a main game, now that I look at it. It's generally called a "spin-off sequel"--Drache 15:14, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
With the latest issue of Nintendo Power out, we should first change the name to "Dawn of the New World" (to stay true to that English name only thing), and also, it was mentioned that it fell between sequel and spin-off. I'm shoving it in the "other" category because of that. Drache 12:56, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Kudos

This was moved from the main page by --Imaginationac 07:54, 17 March 2007 (UTC): OH, AND GOOD WORK RECENTLY, REVIN, GENJIS AND GOLDENTALESGEEK. THIS WIKI NEEDS SOME MORE OF THAT KIND OF HELP AND STUFF

Spoiler warning

I suggest placing a spoiler warning on the front page that states that spoilers are to be expected. This will save time. --Imaginationac 21:53, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Tales of Phantasia names

I'm going to change the atricles so that they use Nintendo of America's names. They've been used in the game and the OVA already so they're probably official. DeJap fanboys may argue, but then, nobody goes around calling Raine "Refill" just to stay true to the Japanese version, do they? --Meeps

Help make the main page look neat

I think the main page should include less encyclopedic information since it slightly makes the page look tacky, the purpose of the main page isn't for having encyclopedic information, and it makes the page too long. --Imaginationac 02:53, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

I second that notion but point out that if you fill the page with too many of those text boxy things, that might also make it look a bit messy. Who knows though. You did good work on them other layouts, Imaginationac, so chances are you'll make it look alright. --Meeps

What the front page really needs

Is a featured article and a news section. Not that there's ever much news in the world of Tales games. But, you know. Something to do. --Meeps

I concur. I'll try to get on that, around the beginning of May.--Imaginationac 17:58, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Main page not appearing correctly in IE 6

The only problem I see are the intro tables I created on the front page are way out of place, or not there at all. Is this happening to anyone else using IE 6? --128.192.39.3 01:23, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

The intro tables are shown incorrectly for me by using IE 6 as well. I've tested it with Firefox version 2.0.0.3 and Opera version 9.10, so it's a IE 6 problem only. --Genjis 09:02, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Fansite links

On the main page, there is only a single link to a Tales fansite (Tales Central) but since there a are more than one Tales fansites on web, I sugesst to add more links from other fansites to not let become Tales Central a monopoly because the visitors only see this link and favor this fansite. Tales Central is more a "database" as a site with helpul information after all. At least one or two additional links and it should be fine. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Genjis (talk 09:02, 15 April 2007 (UTC)).

Do you have any specific suggestions for other fansites? --Imaginationac (Talk | Edits) 14:51, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

I know a lot fansites, but we can't list them all, can we? However, I would suggest that we add Temple of Undine and Raijinken.net beside Tales Central. These both sites have a large list of affiliates, which means a lot of links to other fansites, and the purpose to link the visitors to as much fansites as possible is erfüllt. To spare place, we could make it like this:

We could also add a line with other language Tales fansites to give it an international touch.

By the way, I could add links to fansites on the specific game articles which spicify to a single Tales game, like Tales of Symphonia only, Tales of Eternian only, and so on. I know a lot informal and helpful sites, especially the european ones. And since this is a wiki, an encyclopedia, it would be good to list nearly everything, right? The Wikipedia articles to the specific Tales games includes links to fansites already. -- Genjis

Website Name

Why Aselia? Can't it be called Magic Lens? -Meeps

Renaming the site is a major consideration as it involves possible moving to a new url address. I'll put it up for one of the topics in my proposal. --128.192.219.239 22:05, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Poll is broken

Polls created with {{Poll}} which includes use of the <poll> extension are broken across several Wikia. The problem won't be worked on until tomorrow at the earliest.--Imaginationac (Talk | Edits | Email) 03:16, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

  • <a> tags had to be removed because they don't work anymore, hence the poll was reset.

Redesign

So I redesigned the main page again, and this I definitely like it. Any comment? Wanted additions/subtractions? Colors? Leave 'em here!--Imaginationac (Talk) (Edits) (Email) 23:59, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Red.Cress, the first character in the Tales series has red as his main character. Lloyd too. In fact, just add the colors of the top Tales characters. e.g: Black(Yuri)

Wikia Gaming footer

I went ahead and added a Wikia Gaming footer to the bottom of the Main Page. We're trying to get Wikia's gaming wikis more linked with each other. It's not mandatory, so you can remove it if you really hate it, but it would be appreciated if you didn't :). You can change the links to point to any other wikia wikis you like or cooperate with. Ausir 15:48, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Wikia Gaming IRC channel

Hullo! I am Kirkburn, your friendly local Wikia Gaming Helper!

You may be interested to know there is a Wikia gaming IRC channel, #wikia-gaming on chat.freenode.net, where you can hop on, ask for help from users of other gaming wikis, or offer your own experiences. If you are not familiar with IRC clients, you can access it from http://irc.wikia.com/gaming.

Different people may be on sporadically, but we organize weekly chats at a fixed time so we can get the most number of people online at the same time to ask and answer questions, or just to hang out. The admins of some of Wikia's biggest gaming wikis (e.g. WoW, Halo) often attend them. You can find the time for the next chat by following this link.


If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me! Kirkburn (talk) 11:11, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Main page layout update

Hullo! I am Kirkburn, your friendly local Wikia Gaming Helper!

Hopefully you have read about the skin and ad changes at Wikia's New Style on Central Wikia. If not, I hope you'll have a look.

One of the changes is a block of two ads on each main page. It's possible that they won't always show up, but to ensure your main page continues to work properly when they do, you need to update your main page column formatting code with new column tags.

I have drafted a main page using the new tags on User:Kirkburn/Dev which I hope you can take a look at - feel free to make a copy and edit it. Though the layout may seem restrictive at first, there really is a fair amount you can do with them - for example see these customized main pages - Muppet Wiki, WoWWiki, FFXIclopedia. You may want to chat with your wiki community about what direction to take with a new main page.

If you encounter any problems with the new tags, please let us know.

My apologies for any inconvenience these changes bring.
Thank you for your time, Kirkburn (talk) 17:08, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

I have switched to the new layout - it should be pretty familiar. I have also done some code cleanup which should make it easier to read. Kirkburn (talk) 15:30, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Table colors

Hey, not sure who to talk to about this, so I'll post it here.
Is there any chance we can get the default text color for tables changed for the Gaming color scheme? It's white text on a white background, which is difficult to read to say the least. I'm not sure if this is something that can be fixed here or if it's a Wikia thing, but I thought I'd ask.
Thanks. ZWAndo 22:00, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Citations

I'm getting a headache. Citations or no? I was going to add citations to the pages I wrote, but it's not going to matter if they're just going to be removed. Please, let's discuss this now: Citations or no? Lanate (talk) 03:38, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

If you are talking about to the references I've talk to over 6 admins at other wikis and they say references are not needed, only at wikipedia they are needed, but wikia has no policy for information added that needs reference.--Zolo 20:34, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
I add my sources to every page I add to this wiki, since I think it's helpful if someone wants to see how the data was listed elsewhere. This is more important if the pages are in Japanese (like those from Majestic Phantasian or the various JP @wiki communities) - they cannot be found easily using English-based search engines, and they generally carry more info like suggestions on how/when to use certain attacks, or how to optomize their abilities, things that become far too much to write out in English without separate articles for each attack (which is why I started that [stalled] project in the first place). I could care less if the reference sections are deleted though, it's not really my problem, but I prefer to keep them. Just keep in mind that every article and stub that I have made here has a "References" section, so that's like, hundreds of pages to sort through if you want all of them deleted.
Mayu Miyuki 21:11, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
I typically prefer references as well, perhaps not to the same extent as Mayu, but definitely some.
I guess it's not as important here, but on the Digimon wikia there is a lot of misinformation and misconceptions floating around, so over there we've gotten into the habit of sourcing and adding references. Aselia doesn't have the same amount of problems, but I do believe having some references on hand are good. Lanate (talk) 01:35, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Well I guess (how much I hate them) references are ok I guess. I hope you guys finish the arte sections I'll be glad to see this wiki progress in the future sad to say I'm leaving for a while to help my Lucky Star wiki get up and running. Till then Seeya.--Zolo 00:46, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Poll

I notice the poll on our home page is extremly old so I was just asking should we make a new poll or just delete it, becuase it kind of makes the home page big?--Ratatosk/Zolo 23:18, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello descision people take down the poll or not?--Ratatosk/Zolo 10:57, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Uhh, do what you want. If anyone is opposed to your changes, they'll tell you. In any case no one else will reply here since, remember that we have like a total of 3~5 people who actually come here to work on stuff, so there isn't much to discuss when there are more important things to work on.
Mayu Miyuki 12:43, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Navigation

I hope it's not just my computer, but is it possible to have the Tales of... Navigation on as above the page as possible? If it could get before the news, and MAYBE before the welcome box, then it could work? It would just be easier for people to see the navigation if it washigher up.

Penamesolen 16:52, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Deletion?

A Note to All (esp.Moderators): A new category has been created, Article Graveyard, all pages worthy of deletion are to be placed here. Moderators are to search through the pages and delete which ever pages should be.

gammer10 15:56, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

A category already exists for pages proposed for deletion. To add articles to this category, please add the {{delete}} tag to the page.
I will be moving your "article graveyard" to the deletion category to avoid redundancy. Thanks for trying to help, at least.
Yumemi Hoshino (talk) 16:37, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't know that it existed. Thanks for clearing things up

The Names

What the hell is this? The names are Cless and Klarth. I guess the One Piece wikia should use Zolo right? Drunk Samurai 18:23, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

We use the official localized names on this wiki, whether we like them or not. I assure you that I hate Kronos and GARRRRRR as much as anyone else, and I would find it amusing to use Japanese nicknames like "Empty Space" instead of Nanaly, but this is our standard. If we were in charge of that other wikia, then yes we would use the localized name "Zolo"; in fact, one of our users is named with that spelling.
Yumemi Hoshino (talk) 19:40, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

That makes no sense at all. It is always a horrible idea to use English names over the original names. Especially when they were already romanized from the ORIGINAL Tales of Phantasia. Also you wouldn't since Zolo was only used in edited dubs. Funimation uses Zoro in their uncut DVDs. Drunk Samurai 20:18, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

This is the English-language wikia for the Tales series; therefore, it's our policy to use only the official localized names, when available. Other wikias may use whichever naming convention that they wish, but it is their choice to do so; whether the One Piece wikia uses Zolo or Zoro has absolutely no effect on what we use here.
Like it or not, Cress and Claus are the official localized names; even TalesRPG.com, the official English Tales website, uses the names "Cress" and "Claus" (though the site itself has several typoes and the like, so perhaps it wasn't the best example; regardless, it does not change the fact that the website uses Cress and Claus). Believe me when I say that I dislike these names myself, but I accept that they are the official localized names. Besides, in my opinion, it is unprofessional to switch naming conventions to suit the character; if we use Cless and Klarth, then by extension we must use the names "Refill" and "Shihna", which are simply unacceptable on an ENGLISH wiki.
Formula 22:17, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

This is not Wikipedia this is a wikia. It is 100% acceptable to use ORIGINAL AND CORRECT names on this wikia. It's like saying O-Parts Hunter instead of 666 Satan or Case Closed instead of Detective Conan are the correct names. Whoever suggested this wikia use the horrible localized names was completely incorrect. Drunk Samurai 03:38, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Our stance on this matter simply will not change. I do not know why you continue to bring other series into this discussion, as whatever they do in their own fandoms is up to them. While we realize that we are a wikia, it is our choice and our choice only to bring use localized, OFFICIAL information. Yes, I did just use the word official, shock and alarm. These localized names and terms are just as official as the ones used in glorious Nippon land - in fact, in Vesperia and Dawn's cases, both the localization and development teams even worked together! - so you'll just have to deal with it, to put it bluntly.
Honestly though, did you come here JUST to complain about the names used in our wiki? That notion in itself is just as absurd as you say using localized names is. Using the localized terms is NOT incorrect in every case, as you seem to believe. This is, again, an ENGLISH LANGUAGE WIKIA (does that need to be any clearer?), so just as you say using the names from the original Japanese release is 100% acceptable, so is using the localized names. I'm not saying that the localized naming convention is more "right" than the Japanese names, but it is the naming convention we use on this wiki. You can feel free to use the original names elsewhere on forums, etc. if you'd like, but that won't change a thing here.
English language wiki, localized names. That's how we do things here.
This is our final ruling on this matter.
Formula 04:34, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
You're entitled to your own opinions on how you render these names for yourself. But all of our opinions are irrelevant when we post information in an official display. The localized names take precedent in all cases, without exception, because this is an English website and resource. The information that we present here is designed to be more accessible and understandable for those who read it - specifically the English-speaking players who are familiar with the English names. In fact, I wish we were more like Wikipedia... we might get more traffic and contributions that way.
If you think the original Japanese names are so superior (including those terrible names like Rid, Lion, Genius), I suggest you get your information instead from the many dozens of Japanese atwiki and futaba wiki sites that exist, which tend to have a whole wealth of info that we haven't even attempted to translate yet. Surely you'll be able to get more out of those sites than from this one, because Japan's resources are oh so much more superior to our own. Our only advantage (penalty? handicap? disability?) is the English language, so we make full use of our language to cater to the English-speaking audience.
Yumemi Hoshino (talk) 05:42, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

So let's see. Even though the names you use are WRONG you still use them? All the names were changed in 2008. Let me guess. You didn't even run a consensus for it before the change or blocked every person who wanted the correct names right? BTW your reasoning for using Cress and Claus is completely wrong. More people know about the fan translated ROM than the PSX version. So English speaking people know the names Cless and Klarth over what is used here. Drunk Samurai 07:27, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Protip: ROMs are illegal. Anyone who is not a pirate, specifically anyone who wants to support this series by buying the games to prove to Namco that there are people outside of Japan who want more Tales games, have purchased and played the localized GBA version, possibly as their only version. And though I freely admit that I do pirate some games of my own, that doesn't change the fact that Cress/Claus and the last names Albane/Adenade/Burklight/Klein were used in the official localization, and that all of these name changes were retained in the Phantasia OVA dub. The names are not "completely wrong", they are completely correct for the context of this wiki.
We use the names that are published by Namco Bandai and its localization branch known as Namco Hometek. If Hometek uses the name, we use the same name. If Hometek changes the name, we follow their lead. There is zero margin for error, and this is how things have been since this wiki was created. Again, if you like the original names better, please direct yourself to the nearest Japanese-language wiki site instead. I suggest Majestic Phantasian or Tales of Surprise. Clearly we don't have enough Japanese birds cooking spaghetti (ilu /jp/), and I'm sorry that you don't accept the way we do things here.
If you feel the need to complain further, please file your complaint with Namco Bandai, as it's their decisions, not our own, to determine how to name the characters.
Yumemi Hoshino (talk) 13:28, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

New Template, perhaps?

I'm not sure whether to call it WIP or Construction, but can we get a template for something that isn't finished being written yet, so people know that it's not quite done yet? Mind you, we'd need rules on that, and I'm not exactly sure what the rules would be. Also looking for insight on this, since I have a couple of pages like that. Omio(talkBelt«: You say that the Gary Sue is first, yet the not-so-bad character isn't on the poll? WTF, NAMCO?! 16:30, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

That's the role of the {{stub}} tag. Besides, I would prefer to avoid publishing new pages unless there is a decent amount of info to warrant making a new page, so we don't find ourselves littered with more stubs or "filler" pages than we already have now. In my opinion, having red links is better than having nearly blank pages that no one will try to complete in the near future.
Besides, such a template would prevent other users from making their own changes on those pages, in fear of conflicting edits with the initial creator of the article. I mean yes, that's exactly why I'm not changing the format of ToI - Recipes yet, I'm going to let the initial contributor to finish it so I don't have to task myself with completing the page on my own. But everything that I publish, it's usually in a state where there is nothing more I can add until my source itself is updated, and I'm counting on other users to add in any remaining missing info. Too bad no one ever does, and certain pages look exactly the same way they were when I created them, so meh.
Byakuren Hijiri (talk) 18:05, January 28, 2010 (UTC)
I thought the role of the stub tag was to inform people that the article doesn't have information because either the author does not have much information, or there is very little information to give in the matter in total.
As to the whole list thing, I'm pretty reluctant to edit them because I'm afraid of botching something up, or putting possibly incorrect information up. [Yes, I know of reverting, but that idea is something I really don't want to exercise without a good reason, like to ditch vandalism - and even then, I'd just edit and take it out unless there's been stuff taken out.]
The Melnics page is definitely not done, and I don't know how images work, and until I learn, or someone else finds good images and puts them on, I can't really call the page done. Maybe I should get to headlining some things and dividing it up.
Omio(talkBelt«: You say that the Gary Stu is first, yet the not-so-bad character isn't on the poll? WTF, NAMCO?! 15:25, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
No, the stub-template is to tell that the article/section needs expanding. Why would it else Alice or Yeager have their stub-template?
Penamesolen 16:04, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
Okay. Anyone else have anything to say on the matter? I've got nothing.
Omio(talkBelt«: You say that the Gary Stu is first, yet the not-so-bad character isn't on the poll? WTF, NAMCO?! 16:15, January 29, 2010 (UTC)

Article count off-kilter?

Every time I log in, it shows 2101. Once I log out, 2100. That extra '1' shows up every time I log in, and vanished when I log out. Mind kinda answering me on saying 'What the heck?!'

Omio(talkBelt«: You say that the Gary Stu is first, yet the not-so-bad character isn't on the poll? WTF, NAMCO?! 00:18, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
I've no idea. Admins can't control wiki statistics, so it might be a MediaWiki or Wikia database indexing issue of some sort. Or maybe it's cache/cookie related on your browser, and you would have to flush them or wait a day or two for it to correct itself. I can't do anything about it.

Narikiri Dungeon

Narikiri Dungeon is NOT part of the ToW franchise. It has absolutely no place there. It isn't titled as a World game and has no cross-over elements whatsoever.

And meanwhile, Summoner's Lineage, which also has no crossover elements with Tales games beyond Phantasia, is titled with the TotW name. Is it not a World game then?
And meanwhile, Material Dungeon, which also has no crossover elements whatsoever, is titled with the TotW name. Is it not a World game then?
And meanwhile, Tales of Tactics, which does have crossover elements with all Tales games that existed at the time, is not titled with the TotW name. Is it a World game then?
The World series is not a series of crossover games. What separates the subseries from the other games is the ability to change the class of the lead characters and achieve distinctly separate movelists and fighting styles. It's just that four out of seven of them happen to be crossover games (NariDan 2+3, RadiMai 1+2), while four other crossover games exist outside of the World series itself (Tactics, VS., and the two Fandom games). Therefore, crossover games do not equate to World games. Everything else that might connect some of the World games ultimately does not apply to all of them.
But if you feel you know best, then whatever, I won't press the issue. I don't care enough to start some sort of edit war, and it makes very little difference where the original NariDan is listed anyway.
Byakuren Hijiri (talk) 20:07, April 22, 2010 (UTC)
@ Zolo - *facepalm*
Even when I'm irritated or angry about something, I don't go about throwing personal insults, dear. I might insult the content, but not the person who added the content. And as a frequently anonymous contributor to a certain imageboard site, I also get slightly annoyed by those namefa-- er, namefriends♥~ who look down on their fellow Anons. I wasn't going to press the whole issue either, since it doesn't even matter where the first NariDan is listed as long as there's a link at all.
Byakuren Hijiri (talk) 02:51, April 23, 2010 (UTC)
Nothing to say really, but I only insult I.P's or annoying new users Although I was one at one time. I do not insult fellow great editors like you or Lanate. The issue is do we keep it in the TotW or the Escort area. I mean Narikiri? I would believe it would go into the Tales of the World section, becuase of Narikiri Dungeon 2 and 3? The game is not really a direct sequel it's more of a spin off like Summoner's Lineage which is a ToTW title, so it wouldn't really go into the Escort titles like Knight of Ratatosk. Either way.....screw it I have nothing really to say. If the I.P changes moves again, "it" moves it again. I'm going to bother myself I have more important things to do. --'SilentKlarinette 03:23, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

And meanwhile, Tales of Tactics, which does have crossover elements with all Tales games that existed at the time, is not titled with the TotW name. Is it a World game then?


You know what's ironic? You base your reasoning on the exact name that Namco choose for a game, yet you argue that a game called Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon should be considered Tales of the World.


The World series is not a series of crossover games. What separates the subseries from the other games is the ability to change the class of the lead characters and achieve distinctly separate movelists and fighting styles. It's just that four out of seven of them happen to be crossover games (NariDan 2+3, RadiMai 1+2), while four other crossover games exist outside of the World series itself (Tactics, VS., and the two Fandom games). Therefore, crossover games do not equate to World games. Everything else that might connect some of the World games ultimately does not apply to all of them.


And neither do Narikiri Dungeons equal World games. Just because some World games are ND, does not make the other NDs World games. Also there is no class changing in SamoRine. Only thing Fulein can change is his attack element. That theory doesn't hold either.


But if you feel you know best, then whatever, I won't press the issue. I don't care enough to start some sort of edit war, and it makes very little difference where the original NariDan is listed anyway.


Fun fact: The original is listed as a World game, the remake isn't. Where's the sense in that?


Nothing to say really, but I only insult I.P's or annoying new users Although I was one at one time. I do not insult fellow great editors like you or Lanate.


The common synonym for people behaving like this is "ass-kisser".

As for the rest, I won't bother to change it again or try to argue with someone who hasn't played the games in question in the first place.

Tales of Xillia

A new tales games known as Tales of Xillia has been announced. Although there exists a main page for it here, it not only lacks any detailed information, but there are requests to delete it entirely. However, both the game AND it's title have been confirmed, and there's even an official site for it now. Therefore, it's only fitting that this game not only has its own detailed article, but it be mentioned on the announcements as well.

I'm saving the main page update for whenever I'm not being lazy, which will be after things are sorted over on our new server for our wiki move. In any case, if you think a topic deserves an article, make sure to add as much accurate detail as possible from the first edit. Simple stub-length pages that state less a mere sentence or three are pointless and worthless, since they only provide obvious facts that anyone would likely already know. Actual detailed information includes specifics (and not speculation!) that have been disclosed about the two characters through Namdai's press conference and trailer yesterday, along with the Weekly Shounen Jump magazine leak last night. If you or others don't have that information or don't want to go through that much effort to make a page, it's better off not existing until someone can make a fully viable article as a base for future edits.
Anyway, I'm not bothering to properly delete that article so people can see through the history archives exactly what the page looked like when overenthusiastic people make silly stubs without much effort, since I can't even remember how many times I had to delete pages for other past topics until I got fed up with it all and dumped something on those pages on my own. Even then it keeps happening because of the general "someone else will do it" mentality.

Somebody Ought to Update all the Tales of Legendia Title pages

I noticed nobody has written any data for the titles in the game, and having title pages for each character would surely help. I know that most of the titles are received through the main storyline and not really through any sidequests or achievements, but still.

It's up to whoever has the time and interest to invest into making those pages. Someone said that he/she would do it a looong time ago and never had anything to show for it (which is actually far better than publishing single entries on each page and making minor updates across the span of the same number of months and still come nowhere close to finishing any one page), and I have other things to worry about on this wiki, what with me being the wiki janitor around here, with all janitorial analogies fully implied to my utmost misery. So I assure you that we are well aware that there are pages that don't exist on a wide variety of subjects, but we cannot get to all of them when there are so many other things to deal with at the same time.

News Section

Never gets updated, so why do we keep it? Makes the wiki appear as if it isn't really used anymore. Is there any way to link it to a Tales site that updates frequently?

In terms of sites with Tales Series news, the wiki could link to the official Tales Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/tales Lig0schndr (talk) 09:40, August 30, 2012 (UTC)

Unused Data

I've seen this being thrown around a few times, and I just wanna ask it here: Usused data...It's not to be used on this wiki, correct? I've seen a few sections about unused data still lying around and I want to make sure that it'd be OK to get rid of them, without seeming like some kind of deletion-mad editor...

--LolX3D (talk) 20:11, October 19, 2012 (UTC)

That is correct. Content regarding unused or dummied data has no place on this wiki, and should be removed if noticed. This is primarily because it usually results in speculation, and can easily be associated with other nonsensical information such as bugs and cheats. Mayu and I monitor all edits pretty well. If one of us notices you are doing something wrong, we will inform you.
