This is an archive a previous messages and shouldn't be edited.


two notices Edit

  1. Can you possibly archive some of your talk page as it takes a good few minutes to load past 8pm GMT+0 (theres an internet connection problem around here and things slow down around that time)
  2. Do you think we should make a need image template or/and category as we have quite a few of articles needing them and it'll make it easier to find/see ones that need images, making life easier for people uploading images.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 19:32, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Both good ideas. It is quite a problem to find these things--Otherarrow 19:38, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Suggestion Edit

One of the optional widgets on the sidebar says "Help needed" and can only be changed by the admin. With my work on the Sega Wiki, I found it helpful when I didn't know which page needed exactly the most help, and it turned out the page that needed help only had an image and a stub template on it. Perhaps you, as the admin, could edit this page to tell new editors or even some who are more experienced what page exactly you could use a hand with.
Wadu Ferd-soren Talk-Contributions 20:17, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Wait....what? I'm suppossed to do what now? English please.--Otherarrow 21:59, 2 July 2008 (UTC)


Sorry if that sounded commanding, it was meant only as a simple suggestion.
There is a thing on the sidebar that says "Help needed" at the top. It says what the administrator thinks is a page that could use some editing if it is in really bad shape. For example, pages like Barts or Valaura. Both pages are tiny and have only had around 1 or 2 edits.
To change the text on that widget, the administrator visits MediaWiki:Needhelp and... I don't know exactly what he/she does, but it should have directions on the page, or you can ask Wikada on the Sega Wiki.
After that page has been edited with... whatever you typed in, the "Help needed" widget should display something about how the page you selected needs help and, hopefully, editors would see that the page you chose needed help and edit it or make it bigger or something like that.
Again, I'm just suggesting. You don't need to do anything. Wadu Ferd-soren Talk-Contributions 01:25, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

I don't see any Help needed thingy. I'm useing old fashion monobook, so I can't really see the problem. Also, these sigs are starting to annoy me with there code taking up tons of space on the edit page, and in some cases the talk page. Maybe I'm losing it--Otherarrow 01:29, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

It's an optional widget to put up under preferences. I guess not a lot of people use it. --Wadu 02:01, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry I can't really help. --Otherarrow 03:28, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

about that voting for new featured article Edit

Do you think you can put up a note about it on Mediawiki:Sitenotice (remember to change that other page so it shows up again for people who have previoulsy dismissed it.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 20:08, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

It's on the front page, so I don't see any problems. Besides, the site notice is for site notices. People will be able to find it if they look for it. Or look at the front page.--Otherarrow 20:14, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Few problems with that theory:

  1. Regular contributors usually won't stop and stare at the front page as they've already seen it a lot (The only reason i noticed it was because it was in recent changes)
  2. The only link to it is at the bottom of the featured article bit which isn't very eyecatching.
  3. It is a site notice, as its voting for a featured article, which is part of the site and not really to do with the FE series itself.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 20:21, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Eh...true. Now let me find the thing.--Otherarrow 20:25, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Das ist Sehr Gut. When are you planning to tally the votes by the way?

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 20:37, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

,but you may want to put the 'R' in featured

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 20:39, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Whenever we get more than one vote per article for starters. Also, what language was that?--Otherarrow 20:41, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

meant to be German, however there is the possibility i misspeled 'Sehr', but then again i dropped German in Year 9 so you can't really blame me for getting the spellings a bit messed up.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 20:47, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Sorry...Edit

Fe7Karel
Moblin slayer - I'll get twenty somethin sword hits off you before you even move.
TALK - Big sword time...
Sorry about not categorizing...I have a terrible memeory and I've barely been on any wikia for a month...and it's not like I've created any new pages on Zeldapedia...pls forgive me, I'll do my best to remember in the future...oh, u like the talk bubble?




It's OK. Anywho, I just spoke to you about that.--Otherarrow 16:40, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, go and delete it, i didn't see that at first (missed it on the recent changes...)--Moblin slayer 16:43, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Like I said, and repeated to that other guy, we can have fun stuff on the Wiki, if we actully can make this Wiki good enough so that said stuff won't get in our way. I won't delete the template yet though. We may need it later.--Otherarrow 16:45, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

I don't know if your gonna be able to get this message Edit

but before you leave the computer, can you make me a sysop for a while so i can deal with any vandals while your gone, you can take the powers away when you get back if you want.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 15:12, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Sorry Semaj, (mind if I call you that?) I left right after I made that message and besides, the only powers I can take back is rollboack, if I give you sysop rights I couldn't take them back. So no problems, eh?--Otherarrow 01:06, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

About the polls Edit

I've just archived them and put two new ones up

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 15:41, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Good job.--Otherarrow 15:41, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

You may want to know the polls have been reset as I spelt favourite the good old British way and so that had to be changed, though i don't think there were that many votes at the time so it doesn't really matter.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 14:02, 24 July 2008 (UTC)


These need deleting Edit

Category:Articles_that_need_deleting

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 10:03, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up.--Otherarrow 13:53, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Needs deleting again those vandals made one.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 15:44, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

vandals to ban Edit

you probably saw them

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 09:32, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

  • Freniminomdacx
  • orangemonkey

they both need blocking!!!!

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 09:44, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Done and done.--Otherarrow 14:41, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

How would you feel about adding Tear Ring Saga stuff to this wiki? Edit

it seems that both FEwiki.net and Serenes Forest.net have at least covered the basics, maybe we should do the same, it would increase our potential userbase (attract more people) and people don't have to get involved with that side if they want to, we could just make sure all the categories the TRS pages use would include Tear ring saga in the name (and the same for the artciles if necssacery)

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 16:07, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Makes sense! Thing is, I know next to nothing about that.--Otherarrow 16:17, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Yeah me neither however I think to have the option available to users is quite important.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 16:52, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Can you check to make sure everything on Template:Character is ok, and then protect it Edit

People keep editing it and its getting really annoying and wasting my time correcting it...

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 14:07, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Done.--Otherarrow 15:27, 29 July 2008 (UTC)


Can you delete these categories and articles Edit

Category:Articles that need deleting

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 15:46, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Can you edit MediaWiki:Edittools for me, instructions below. Edit

Can you please add a new section for templates and add {{Stub}}, {{Needimage}}, {{Needcharacterinfobox}}, {{Needquote}} and any other relevent ones you can think of.

Thank you

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 19:55, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Hmm? Is that really needed? It's not like this are hard to remember. It's just a stub for stub and the word "Need" before what is needed. If there where really complicated named templates, then maybe, but who would used those anyway?--Otherarrow 19:59, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

OK, it would simplify things for me and it would get new users (but not new to wikia) used to the templates we use, however more importantly

Got to: http://metroid.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page and create a new page, you'll see at the top of the page there are those buttons that create infoboxes, could you make one of those buttons for characters for me, it would make things easier in creating new character pages.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 20:21, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

There is also the matter of thast thing looks really complicated. One with my coding knoiwledge will not be able to do that.--Otherarrow 20:53, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Ok i'll create it in a template until i have it right, then you can copy it to the mediawiki bit.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 10:33, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

either copy Template:Newpagepractice over to MediaWiki:Newarticletext, or put {{Newpagepractice}} in MediaWiki:Newarticletext and then protect that template.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 10:47, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Hold that as there seems to be a minor problem (checking on advance wars wiki)


Fixed it should do it now (when you copy it across)

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 13:45, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Clicking the Character tab on the newpage practice just leads to the edit page for the template.--Otherarrow 15:25, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

thats because it only works on a new page, when its on the template it'll just take you to the edit page, but if you click it when creating a new page, it will make the infobox appear so you just have to fill it in

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 15:56, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Here's what i've done on advance wars wiki as an example: http://advancewars.wikia.com/index.php?title=Exampleforotherarrow&action=edit

If you click unit it will load the write infobox for you

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 16:01, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

It works! Thank you for dealing with my lack of coding skill there Semaj.--Otherarrow 16:08, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

only a slight mistake, you repeated:

'You are starting a brand new article.

Check out Help:Editing for more information on how to edit wiki pages. Don't forget to categorize articles by adding [[Category:Name]] to the bottom of the page! A list of categories can be found on Special:Categories.'

So the first one of those needs taking out and also could you protect the involved templates (Template:Newpage Character and Template:Newpage instructions I think)

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 16:17, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

The template seems to repeat that message, so I had to remove the first message.--Otherarrow 16:19, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Why is this page categorized as name? Edit

Are we starting to categorize user pages?

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 16:24, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

ahh I realise it was in my other post.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 16:26, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Idea: Task board Edit

my idea is that we should create some kind of page (proably Fire Emblem Wikia:Task board) with a list of jobs that need doing for the wiki (i.e add images to Category:In need of an image or whatever that category is) this offers more options for users who have deliberately come to edit (over the usual just add content involved in the wanted pages and short pages), I can do all this work myself I just wanted your opinon on it first (and any tips/idea's you may have on it yourself.Another advantage of this is if a user see's a long task that needs doing (i.e categorize all fire emblem 1 characters), but don't have time to do it themselves they can simply add it to the Task board and so brings attention to the job so someone with time can get round to doing it. I will start creating this board, when i come back from a short 1-2 day holiday which i will embark on in about 2-3 hours.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 13:25, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

p.s when you levae a message can you put it on my talk page as i will not entirely remember this when i get back, (so that message will remind me)

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 13:27, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm quite sick right now, so i don't really feel like doing the character infoboxes. Edit

Feel free to carry on complaining though.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 15:17, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, that's sweet of you.--Otherarrow 15:18, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Featured ArticleEdit

Just dropped by from the Final Fantasy Wiki to remind you that the month is over and the new Featured Article should be put up! P.S. I am by no means continuing to edit this wiki nor abandoning it, I'm just putting it on hold. Ultimateria 04:28, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Your right. I should get on that.--Otherarrow 14:17, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

You may wish to know that i've sent off a few emails to the admins of some fire emblem sites I have/do use. Edit

and politely asked them if it would be possible to place a link to Fire Emblem wikia on their site.I've only sent them in the last few hours so I havn't got any responses yet, however i've got high hopes that this could draw more editors to the wikia.

p.s on Saturday will be going on a one week holiday and so won't be editing or even going on wikia for that time.

--Semajdraehs-Talk page-Shaman animation 13:52, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Please do not overdo it, we do not want to look like morons in need of saving here. Also, next time, tell me before you do something like this. I dislike it when you go behind my back on things.--Otherarrow 14:47, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for going over your head, didn't realise you would take offence.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:08, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

The admin of Serenes forest has added to the link section and he says he may include a link in an update in the near future.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 22:33, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Task board Edit

Hey, I did the Itemnav thing in all the item pages but they might get messed up again. Do you want me to take the responsibility of checking now and then if it's all good upon my own shoulders? It could save others some worry and trouble and I don't mind checking the list every week after school starts. I think it would be a great way for my to shoulder a bit more of the cyber yolk arond here. Anyways, its your call, I can look after it if you would like me to.
C13g3 -Dracoshield--Talk Page- 22:26, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Eh...Do as you please? If you want to do so, I see no reason why not.--Otherarrow 22:32, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Cool. I just thought it could sorta become my responsibility and other users don't have to waste their time doing it if they knew someone is taking care of it. In fact, I was thinking we could even have spaces on the task board where users write their names and agree to pay particular attention to that particular task to see to it that it is done and stays done...
C13g3 -Dracoshield--Talk Page- 22:57, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

That could work. Don't know how may people will go along with it though.--Otherarrow 23:04, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Ok, whatevs with that idea. P.S: What do you think of the sig?
C13g3 -Dracoshield--Talk Page- 23:13, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Pretty good. I guess.--Otherarrow 23:17, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Back from holiday Edit

anything new/important I should know about?--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:04, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

We hav gotten new members and my new nickname for you is SemajW00ter.--Otherarrow 15:07, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Just noticed were on wikia spotlights now Edit

*Breaks open a bottle of imaginary champagne*

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:17, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Since when? I wasn't informed of this. It was your doing wasn't it SemajW00ter?--Otherarrow 15:19, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

If you don't remember:

User_talk:Otherarrow/Archive_1#to_get_the_wiki_to_the_point_where_it_will_be_eledgible_to_become_a_spotlight_wiki...

and 2-3 sections down it mentions it being added to the spotlight list

Thats where all these new users have come from.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:23, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

I thought they came from Serenes Forest? And I have yet to see the spotlight.--Otherarrow 15:25, 15 August 2008 (UTC)


The Serenesforest bit doesn't make sense since we talked to serenesforest way after those messages appeared and I saw it on the left hand side a minute ago, just keep an eye open.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:29, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

OH, well the new guys didn't appear until the Sernes Forest bit happened. How long has the spotlight been up?--Otherarrow 15:31, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Ah, when you put it that way I guess it can be both which caused the influx.I'm not sure how long its been up, I only came back today...It could be other any day where I wasn't here

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:33, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Favicon Edit

First let me say 'congrats' on reaching 1,000 articles! I saw the message on the RPG portal. Anyway, on to the point of this message: I noticed that the Fire Emblem wiki doesn't have a custom favicon, and I think you guys should definitely have one. I found some Fire Emblem icons here. Let me know which one you'd like to use, and I'll convert it into the correct filetype and upload it to the wiki. JoePlay (talk) 14:47, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Don't make your mind up yet as I may have examples of other ones in a minute...

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 14:52, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Doesn't matter, can't find the image i'm looking for.Do you think we should vote for the favicon or just decide now?

P.S i'd vote for the bow --Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:06, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Favicon...What? Please explain this to me. What do these do?--Otherarrow 15:24, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

In your bookmarks (favourites) there a little icons next to the links, the favicon will be this icon, it also appears next to the link in the address bar.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:51, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Oh...I'm digging that bow then.--Otherarrow 15:52, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Ok, bow it is, should you talk to him on his talk page or shall I. --Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:57, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

I just uploaded the bow as the new favicon. It usually takes anywhere from a few to 12 hours for it to show up, so be patient. Glad I could help. If you ever need anything, just shoot me a message. JoePlay (talk) 16:13, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry Edit

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 20:03, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

I have added two variations on the Hello template Edit

At the moment they only have minor differences, but I will better personalize them as i go along, Classic {{Hello}} for those who still want it, {{HelloIP}} for IP users and {{HelloLOG}} for logged in new users.

The new ones:

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 14:50, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Seems good! They could use come changes, such as image balancing (I really liked the Pegaus Wyern balance) but it's a good start!--Otherarrow 21:37, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Maybe we should let it so only the main page and connected templates can only be edited by registered users? Edit

???

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 10:43, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

I think that guy who redid the Main Page without asking anyone put up a warning sayng not to do that.--Otherarrow 10:45, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

do you think we should follow step 2 on the raising your google ranking advice article? Edit

http://help.wikia.com/wiki/Advice:Raising_your_wiki's_Google_ranking#Step_2:_Move_the_main_page.

Waiting for your opinion.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 19:37, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

OK. So what should we name it?--Otherarrow 21:36, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

i was thinking Fir Emblem Wikia.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 22:07, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

You mean "Fire Emblem Wikia" right? Will do.--Otherarrow 22:09, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, unlucky typing error... --Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 22:11, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Done.--Otherarrow 22:13, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Seems good with no obvious backlashes Edit

I say, i think this has gone rather swell then.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 22:18, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

YEs. When I came I neer thought I'd have any power...Oh, you mean the move.--Otherarrow 22:21, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Recent image edits Edit

You must be the one making all the pictures I upload larger. I must thank you for that, as I do not quite know how to do that =D. Email me at quagmire8364@hotmail.com if you have any certain FE pictures that you would like uploaded, as I have every one of them.

You obviously do not look for quality my friend. You just increased my work load by so much for having to fix your mistakes. I am now in a bad mood.--Otherarrow 23:28, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism attacks Edit

Apparently, someone claiming to be you has been trying to vandalise a rival Fire Emblem wiki. Just telling you this because I don't think you, of all people, would try to resort to such tactics in order to promote Fire Emblem's Wikia. 203.176.151.19 00:04, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Thank you random guy! I will work on that!--Otherarrow 00:10, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

To answer your query on my talk page (Being an ip address, I'm not going respond there), I trust that you are not the type to vandalise other wikis as doing so so blantantly and disruptively is only going to lower people's opinions of this Wiki, and also yourself. And because you have been appointed the administrator of the FE Wikia, I expect you to know this already. 203.176.151.19 03:44, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

I guess that's true. I didn't know who you were at the time I wrote that though.--Otherarrow 10:20, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

What other Wiki's? Edit

????

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 08:26, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

P.S This user need blockingEdit

Special:Contributions/63.163.64.246

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 08:31, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Done. Also, the wiki mentioned in the above header. After I hade to clear out some imposter troubles, I learned you have been pestering the users there.--Otherarrow 10:19, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Pestering:To bother, harass or annoy persistently. I asked once what was the point in creating a fourth fire emblem wiki and then I left it alone, that hardly counts as pestering.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 11:10, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Just don't bug people elsewhere. Strike 1.5 then.--Otherarrow 11:15, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

another IP for blockingEdit

71.13.219.58‎ and the page he created needs deleting.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 19:49, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Sitename and Project namespace Edit

Hi there. I noticed that your Sitename and wiki Projectname space are both "Fire Emblem", and not something like "Fire Emblem Wiki", which seems to be causing problems with the fullgame page titles like "Fire Emblem:Path of Radiance" because the system seems "Fire Emblem:" as the namespace for the page, not part of the page. We can fix this, but it will take a little bit of pagemoving to make sure things dont get lost in the shuffle. You would have to check places where you used the {{SITENAME}} magic word, to make sure you dont end up with "Fire Emblem Wiki Wiki" (such as on the mainpage). I wanted to check in with you before we change anything and make sure that your ok with the changing of the sitename and project space to "Fire Emblem Wiki". --Uberfuzzy 10:09, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

So that were not darting between talk pages see this disscussion at Fire Emblem:Community Portal

Sh**! Damn you Gheb-Vandel-Who-Thinks-I-Suck! Semaj, when have I EVER typed in all caps? Think next time!--Otherarrow 21:35, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Two problems caused by move Edit

  1. Some of the redirects to the game pages have been deleted
  2. The wanted pages has gone a little crazy


Solutions Edit

  1. I'm going to surf the wiki now fixing the redirects that have been deleted
  2. I suggest maybe you put out a little note via sitenotice explaining the wanted pages have gone a bit weird and were waiting to fix the problem.

Wait, how have said pages been screwed up, and where would I find them? Just browse the main game pages?--Otherarrow 21:52, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm a little confused myself, it seems redirects have disappeared.I saw one on the page Dayan, which i know never had a red link before, which i redirected to the correct place.

And for the wanted pages, see how there are a 100+ links to Fire Emblem Wiki:Radiant Dawn despite the fact none of those pages actually link to it?

Yeah...Being an idiot at coding, I'm not sure what this means...Heck, that faker has more coding knowledge than I do.--Otherarrow 22:01, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Either way, i would suggest putting up a site notice saying the wanted pages are a bit messed up due to a namespace move and will be 'out of order' until about a day (when the cache clears).

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 22:04, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

ok i've got a soloution to the redirect problem, it seems that blank edits at Special:BrokenRedirects do the trick, so i'll have them done soon, as for the wanted pages we'll just have to wait a day for the list to update.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 22:08, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Semaj. Your a good help to dumb old me.--Otherarrow 22:11, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Can you put that Mediawiki:sitenotice up

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 22:28, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Any suggestions Edit

I've done Template:Lancenav any suggestions before I start adding it to the lance pages?

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 12:55, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Maybe make more of a seperation between "special lances' and "unique lances".--Otherarrow 12:57, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

I was going to do that, then i realised I don't know the seperation for the first 5 fire emblem games. :(

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 13:01, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

You didn't delete the category in one of the two delete categories,(forgotten which one i put it in) Edit

maybe we should consider creating a delete template.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 13:03, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Where were they again?--Otherarrow 13:11, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Category:Articles that need deleting Category:Pages proposed for deletion

its in one of them.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 13:13, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Why do we have 2?--Otherarrow 13:15, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

We created the first one before you got admin, to immediatley delete the pages when we had the powers.You created the second one some time later, to put articles in that should be considered before deleting.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 13:18, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

I did? I thought it was one of those janitors or helpers or something.--Otherarrow 13:20, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Template:Axenav has been completed and added to relevant pages Edit

just thought you'd like to know


--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 15:31, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Were gonna need an extra day for that wanted pages to cache Edit

turns out it was a problem with redrects which caused it.So were gonna have to keep that site notice up for another day for it to cache again.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 23:01, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 23:07, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

...The wanted pages will still need a day to cache to get rid of the fire emblem wiki pages, anyway you know.

--Semajdraehs- any replies to my Talk page 23:14, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
