When making articles on cards, try to use the {{e}} template for energy symbols. Just put {{e|Whatever}} for the energy you want. It defaults to Colorless, but it works for all the rest: {{e|Metal}} makes Metal. It saves some typing time. TTEchidna 04:32, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Ah! Thank you! A simpler way :D Will be using it :D Arri 04:39, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
Yep. I don't see why it wasn't made until recently, what with all of the rest of the single-letter link templates. TTEchidna 04:51, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Opening lines

They should technically be written as they are in the Charmander δ article: '''Charmander δ''' (Japanese: '''ヒトカゲδ''' ''Hitokage δ'') is a {{TCG|Lightning}}-type basic Pokémon card. It is part of the {{TCG|POP Series 5}} set, making it appear like so: Charmander δ (Japanese: ヒトカゲδ Hitokage δ) is a Lightning-type basic Pokémon card. It is part of the POP Series 5 set.

Also, the jname and jtrans parts of the card infobox template are for the actual kana and the romaji, respectively. In jname, you would put ミズゴロウ, while in jtrans you would put Mizugorou for a Mudkip card. TTEchidna 19:11, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

...and don't forget. It's Colorless, Darkness, and Metal, not Normal, Dark, and Steel. TTEchidna 19:19, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Card Pictures

We sure could use your help in creating scans for Project TCGDex articles that don't yet have scans. Politoed666 came up with the idea to have a list of card articles without scans. People with scanning capabilities can then use this list to find a card article without a scan, then scan the image into the Archives and add it to the article. On all but three articles in the list, the "Image" field is currently blank, making for even greater flexibility in image naming.

If you're interested, you can scan the images and upload them similar to how you did it for Goldeen, the first article to get removed from the list upon its article getting a scan. Then remove that card's entry from The List.

If you're not interested, please disregard this message without a second thought. --Shiningpikablu252 03:08, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
