Sure, I could use some help.

What I am trying to do is work on making the protals easier to use and more accesable as well as creating new ones for series that don't already have one.

Howdy, just read on your page you plan on organizing the images on here and I just want to give you a heads up on what I’ve been doing here in regard to box art/covers.

The format I’ve been using to clean up is to use the full game title as much as possible excluding things like colons, full stops, commas and special characters and keeping in spaces as well as adding the region in a bracket at the end, if the title covers different platforms then that’s added in as a bracket before the region. Most of the images in the categories have been cleaned up so it’s easy to work off of. The only ones that don’t really need a region code would be for the DSiWare and WiiWare and their only issue is if the same game (or one titled the same) appears on the other in which case it’s just a platform code.

I do hope I haven’t made it seem more complicated than it is, if there is any questions just ask.--TheWho87™ 01:31, May 12, 2012 (UTC)

Not really it’s a bit of a mix up, the only format I tried was with the galleries for games in regard to box art, an example being Pokémon Platinum/gallery, beyond that it’s pretty much anything goes, there should be some kind of formatting though just haven’t got round to it.--TheWho87™ 01:46, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
When you do the box art renames, can you not make a redirect and fix up the pages with the new filename, it might take longer but it cuts down on the amount of unnecessary redirects. Ignore this if that was what you were going to do anyway I just noticed the redirects.--TheWho87™ 23:02, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
Don’t take this bad but I got a couple of issues to bring up with you. Firstly when it comes to games released on multiple formats it’s preferred that the main image used is that of the main console release and preferably North American covers take president unless it wasn’t released there then it’s any English cover then Japanese. Secondly when it comes to the release dates in infoboxes I can’t remember when but there was a bit of a move to stop using the flag system mainly because for North American releases and that they come out in both America and Canada and the American flag doesn’t really express that so the whole NA, EU, JP, AU system was pushed for use. Also on the same subject for future reference try and make sure release dates are in date order. Just brining you up to speed on layouts and such as this place has a whole lot of clean up needed.--TheWho87™ 23:29, May 14, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah the flags were used before and most of the time never got round to being cleaned up, personally I don’t like them but that’s me, guess I’ve been pushed away from them as I used the other system. My view in regards to the console order was to use home console first since most of the time it only came out on one then handhelds and then working from oldest to newest so DS before 3DS, that would also work for the home consoles so for example Twilight Princess would be GameCube, Wii. Also another rule I tend to use is if its released on more than one format I’d breakdown the link for example GameCube, Wii, DS, 3DS but if it was solely released on that format go ahead and use the fill console title. And if you do the WiiWare and DSiWare pages I tend to format them as Wii (WiiWare).--TheWho87™ 00:50, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
There was a media section on the old templates but that became a bit pointless when it just kept saying “GameCube Media Disc” or “Wii Media Disc”, I don’t think there should be much problem for the moment even with downloadable content that info can be put into the main page.--TheWho87™ 01:14, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
Couple of minor things, when I’ve been doing the regions I put the colon inside the bold code, that’s a minor thing. Also when listing Wii games don’t use Nintendo Wii just Wii, that’s a bad habit I started and only just noticed I was doing it wrong.Oh and a minor thing, add the stub code at the top of the page, another bad habit of mine.--TheWho87™ 14:58, May 15, 2012 (UTC)

Nintendo Monthly

Status  Emotion - Unknown
Rocketslime 1 1 Avatar Hello. I have recently been working on a old feature of the wiki where people write articles as part of a newspaper/magazine. I was wondering if you would want to write an article to introduce yourself to other editors. Would you be interested in doing something like that?
~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 02:39,6/16/2012
For articles I was thinking we could just do anything about Nintendo. Like new games, upcoming or past events, game characters, game locations, or anything like that.

I was thinking there would be a page of the slider that mentions the newest issue.

I have started the first new issue here.

Re:VG Infobox

Status  Emotion - Unknown
Rocketslime 1 1 Avatar I thought we were still using them. I understand about the country misrepresentation, but I think that just the initials are also a bit misrepresentitive as some of the initials are quite a bit different than the names so I think we should try to find something new to do. I currently have an idea of what to do. I will try that and get back to you about that when I finish (or don't).

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 16:13,7/9/2012
The only thing is that we shouldn't make users use templates. It makes it so you can only source edit the page which turns away many editors. There is a workaround for that, but it depends on the situation if it will work. My idea was that we have an image of part of the Earth with the specified section highlighted, but I don't think that would work. Do you have any ideas of what we should do instead of the flags?

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 16:43,7/9/2012
I found some images on wikipedia that show geographic regions so those should work instead of flags. The way I am setting them up you mus put them in like this.
| released = [[File:JP.png|25px|Japan]] '''JP:''' July 28, [[2012]]<br>[[File:EU.png|25px|Europe]] '''EU:''' August 17, 2012<br>[[File:AU.png|25px|Australia]] '''AU:''' August 18, 2012<br>[[File:NA.png|25px|North America]] '''NA:''' August 19, 2012
| platforms = [[Nintendo 3DS]]

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 00:21,7/10/2012
I think the system images are a good idea. The only problem with them is the sizing, but to fix that all you have to do is put the image correctly sized down into a template then take a screen shot and separate the system logo from the rest of the screen shot give it transparency and upload it over the larger logo.

New infobox idea

Status  Emotion - Unknown
Rocketslime 1 1 Avatar I recently came up with an idea to make entering release dates into infoboxes easier. I made this template to test it (Template:Infobox CVG-T). The way it works is if you enter the release date for any region it automatically puts the globes in and every thing. I also made it so it works with multiple systems for release dates. I put it on my user page to test it. What do you think of it?

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 12:36,7/22/2012
I was thinking for multiple systems for release dates I might just have places for two or for three and for all other cases do them case by case (use a modified version of the template in the page).
For the system images I can do the same thing with the "system-1" "system-2", but reuse those variables to add the images. I'll try adding that to the test template. (Done)
Also for updating all of the templates I have come up with a slightly complicated idea using the bot to add a special category to all pages with infoboxes and then remove the category when they have been fixed. I can also make the infoboxes backwards compatible until they have all been fixed then I'll remove the backwards compatibility as not to confuse users.

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 01:16,7/23/2012
I fixed the spacing issue so the dates take up two columns and they are centered. Though I don't know how to organize them. I asked about it here, but I don't know how to apply what the person said in the reply to the placement of the dates.

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 21:15,7/27/2012
I was thinking and maybe somehow we could do something related to the sortable table thing. But I think we may have to settle for the dates being out of order.

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 21:36,7/27/2012
I fixed the problem. Now all dates are moved to the center instead of centered.

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 21:55,7/27/2012
I think we should make the template official. I'll contact Conker's Bad Fur Day about it and get him to have the bot put a category on all pages that need to be updated called Category:Un-updated Infoboxes so when we fix a page we just remove the category and keep doing that until we update all of the pages. Edit: I'll work on centering the release dates thing.

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 22:09,7/27/2012
Conker's Bad Fur Day doesn't know how to do that, so I found a way around that. I put a code in the template that will activate sometime soon, at least by tomorrow. It will add Category:Un-updated_Infoboxes to all pages with Infobox CVG. When ever you update an infobox add this to the template in source mode.
| Fix = a

If you add exactly that it should be easier for Conker's Bad Fur Day to remove it when all of the infoboxes have been updated.

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 00:23,8/5/2012
It has started adding the category. All the pages that should have it will have it by 24 hours from now.

New Badge System

Status  Emotion - Unknown
Rocketslime 1 1 Avatar I recently designed a new badge system that could be used for awards that could be given to users (it would work alongside the current system), and I was wondering if you have any ideas for it. I was thinking maybe we could have award things were users could nominate other users for awards, and we could have special awards for users who contribute good things to the wiki like useful templates or users who write popular blog posts or for other things. What do you think of it?

~Rocketslime_1_1 (Talk | Wall | Contribs) 23:13,7/25/2012
I came up with an idea for the badge system. One type of badge we could award by putting a link at the bottom of the page of a very anticipated game and make a small event thing that users could do and they would while doing that sign a talk page and be awarded a badge. (Example: There would be a picture of Sandbag on the new Super Smash Bros. game's page and when clicked on it will lead to this page. And they would click on the sandbag and sign the talk page to get this badge.)

Sorry I haven't been able to help with the things you ask of me.

Thanks for the information, Blacklodge. I really appreciate what you said and I will do that in the future.

Oh and another thing, couldn't we just add the different box arts in the gallery?
