Welcome to my talk page

June 2, 2007 - December 31, 2008

Current talk page is archived at the end of the day when the size of the page exceeds 50KB.
Current page size: 16KB (17,130 bytes, 33% filled)

Happy New Year

It's 2009! New year, new talk page archive. From now on I'll be archiving - well, it says at the top - whenever the page hits 50KB in size. Should last a few months, then. Cipher (Talk)

Your template

Can I use it?--Maria♥♪♫δ 12:26, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Which one do you want to use, the one on this page? Cipher (Talk) 12:52, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes. With a little modification of course.--Maria♥♪♫δ 12:54, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Sure, no problem. You can just copy the code from this page into your own userspace and edit as you wish. Don't forget to change the links too. =) Cipher (Talk) 12:57, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! I will use it tommorow.--Maria♥♪♫δ 13:00, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Can you help me to change the backgroung colour to lightish pink in my template and then protect it?--Maria♥♪♫δ50px 13:16, 12 January 2009 (UTC)


Why can we not use {{game3}} on TCG articles? That's dumb. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:14, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

I'd be willing to change all of them if "consistency" is so important. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:17, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

That won't be necessary. JessTehSkox and KKllnn (now Cold) have been working on the Origin sections for a long time and always use {{game}}. It's what they use. It's the style. You going around changing hundreds of articles for something that makes hardly any difference, we won't have. Redirects are there for a reason: to allow the simplest wikicoding possible. {{game}} stays, simple as. Cipher (Talk) 22:23, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
However, it's been stated before that linking to redirects should be avoided whenever possible. It's possible to avoid linking to a redirect by using {{game3}}. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:24, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm. It looks like chocolate thought that whatever he was doing was the most correct thing, and had to come bother someone who does something different. This is exactly what I was tallking about yesterday. MaverickNate 22:25, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
No, I was asking a question. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:26, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
It's as simple as this: {{game}} is the simplest to use. It uses the least characters. It doesn't need substing. It stays. Cipher (Talk) 22:27, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Except, it links to a redirect. It has been stated tons of time that redirects must be avoided whenever possible. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:28, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

awww, my bad. You were asking a question that you ask anyone who "does something that isn't exactly what you do, or is a revert of something that you have ever edited." MaverickNate 22:29, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Firstly, if you two are gonna have an argument, DO NOT have it on my talk page. Understood? Because I know you're like around each other.
Secondly, having just asked TTE, this template linking to a redirect doesn't matter. So drop it. Cipher (Talk) 22:34, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
