Friend Safari locations for Pokemon pages

I would really like to know the current status of noting Friend Safari on Pokemon pages. Has there been any progress since the update you gave two months ago? I'd like some response (from someone...) to my query on the Friend Safari talk page...

In particular, I want to know if it's actually impossible to satisfactorily note the Friend Safari, currently, on Pokemon pages. If it can be done, it should be, whether there's a new template in the works or not. I cannot fathom what a new template might do that the current template couldn't that would make it and only it acceptable for adding the Friend Safari. Tiddlywinks (talk) 04:46, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

As much as it should be listed, I believe the consensus is to wait for the new template. No sense doing work twice (I do, however, understand the concern with how long it is taking). Although the new template may appear ready, some staff members have a few concerns with the template. We're pushing this up in the communal to-do list immediately. I'm sorry if I'm not too much help here. I've been out of the game-loop for a while with my focuses elsewhere. MaverickNate 05:10, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Can you direct me to someone I may implore to better effect then? "No sense doing work twice" is not a good reason. It's your (staff, I suppose) reason. If I could be allowed to add Friend Safari locations (in an acceptable format), I wouldn't care the least bit if, one day in and a quarter of the way through, the new template was approved and staff started inserting the new template, with Friend Safari locations.
What there's no sense in is keeping the wiki in a decidedly incomplete state when it can be complete. If staff don't want to do the work twice, let other people who don't mind do it. There should be several people around who would still be willing. Tiddlywinks (talk) 05:23, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
Not doing work over again is my policy. I was speaking for myself. Not the staff. I run a section with very few users contributing, and I like to make sure any and all help is maximized to the fullest, because I'll never know when it will be available again. I suggest going to either the Head of Games, as it's the game availability template in question, or the Editor in Chief, as the template in question is being worked on by her. I have no power in granting a temporary implementation into a section that isn't the TCG. MaverickNate 05:32, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Name parameter

What exactly is the "name=" in the cardlist/div for? I noticed it's only been put in -EX listings for XY Series cards. glikglak 04:36, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

It is supposed to be used on anything with an image in the title of the card. Pokémon SP, Pokémon ☆, Pokémon-EX, etc. The title of each section is treated as an anchor for links, but as images can't very well be in links, there needs to be some way of textifying the names so that links work. The name parameter does this. Ex: Blastoise (TCG)#Blastoise-EX. These links are used on the card name sections of every card. MaverickNate 05:02, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Ran into a problem with blank Owner's Pokémon: the cards' infoboxes seem to link to "#_.27s_(Pokémon)", which I'm assuming translates to " 's (Pokémon)", but putting that in the name parameter doesn't appear to work. Also tried copying the whole ____'s but again, no dice. glikglak 20:08, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
