Which games?

Out of curiosity, which games are being covered under Project Sidegames? Just the Ranger and Mystery Dungeon series, or would Colosseum and XD also be covered under this? --Phantomjunkie 01:35, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Everything here. CuboneKing 01:37, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

It covers all non-main series games (XD and Colosseum are main series games) aside from Battrio, which has its own project. Flyingtypefan 03:07, 13 July 2010 (UTC)


Where did Flyingtypefan ask to be a leader? Founders and leaders are different. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 01:39, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Umeko just warned her about it... CuboneKing 01:41, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

I didn't know when i started it. Sorry! Flyingtypefan 02:08, 13 July 2010 (UTC) So...should i ask, or does anyone else object? Flyingtypefan 03:01, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

You need to ask, even if no-one else objects. That's just the way it works. Werdnae (talk) 03:05, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Features Stub/Wanted article

Great work so far guys. Could I also get you to post on this talk page (not necessarily in this section, but for now it'll do) when you improve one? That way I can see it and update the featured article more quickly. Thanks, and keep up the great work. Werdnae (talk) 06:52, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Can I join?

I was hoping you all could clue me in. I would love to contribute to Project Sidegames, but I can't dedicate a huge amount of time. Can I become a member? I play the Ranger series, Rumble, and (as soon as it comes out) PokéPark Wii. I have tried to build up the Rumble pages in the past, but there is a little confusion as to template design. If someone would help me with standardizing the availability templates, I'd certainly implement them. (Specifically, the colors on the current template do not match the colors of the levels, which is something I've unsuccessfully advocated for in the past.) Thanks! ʝɑzzmotɦ ❝❞ 05:47, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure to join any project, you just add your name to the bottom of the list unless it says otherwise. So, to join, just add your name to the bottom of the participants list. Flyingtypefan 19:52, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Please do add your name to the list, we need more members! Even if you don't have much time, every little bit helps. I can help with your template standardising. Which template in particular? Template:Rumbleloc and it's respective header and footer? Werdnae (talk) 21:12, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Yes, that's the template. Now, maybe I'm just crazy, but I clearly see that the letters of the different stages (C,B,A,S) inside each level are color coded --- just like in SoA, when you are graded on your capture. I think it would be better to have colors that match, but I had a ridiculously hard time trying to convince Sidnoea, and didn't want it to turn into an edit war. Normally, I'm pretty okay at code, but the lack of whitespace in the template confuses the hell out of me. ʝɑzzmotɦ ❝❞ 21:40, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
What colours are the ranks in the game? At the moment it has | style="background: #{{#switch:{{{3|no}}}|yes={{bronze color}}|no=FFFFFF|{{red color}}}};" | '''{{color|{{#switch:{{{3|no}}}|yes=000000|no={{bronze color}}|{{red color}}}}|C}}''' This bit: style="background: #{{#switch:{{{3|no}}}|yes={{bronze color}}|no=FFFFFF|{{red color}}}}; changes the background colour, and this bit: '''{{color|{{#switch:{{{3|no}}}|yes=000000|no={{bronze color}}|{{red color}}}}|C}}''' sets the text colour. In other ranks {{bronze color}} is replaced by {{silver color}}, {{gold color}} and {{platinum color}}, similar to how the route articles have the game colours in the list to show availability. If the ranks aren't coloured bronze, silver, gold and platinum then we should almost certainly change the colours. Werdnae (talk) 22:32, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
The ranks are C-green; B-blue; A-magenta; S-red. (Examples: C rank, B rank, A rank, S rank) I tried to implement it without a template before I knew how to code one, still visible on Bright Beach. I'm also a little confused, because I thought that A was red and S was magenta, but apparently I'm wrong? Also, I think "Grade" is UK English and "Rank" is Am. English, but I'm not sure about that, either. Anyway, if you can fix the template, I can work on fleshing out the pages. Thanks so much! ʝɑzzmotɦ ❝❞ 22:56, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome. I pulled the colours from those images. Werdnae (talk) 23:34, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Stub/wanted article

Just so you know, i plan on tackling those later if no one else has already. But i have a question: why is "Croagunks Swap Shop"under "featured wanted article" if it already exists? Flyingtypefan 02:07, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
