Re: Bot requests

Oh yeah, whooooops! Noreplyz talk 09:23, January 3, 2016 (UTC)

Yes, there were issues I overlooked regarding repetition (e.g. II replacing III's one). I've run a fix, but there may still be some that haven't been fixed. Could you point me to pages with problems? noreply 08:44, January 7, 2016 (UTC)
I believe all of the monster pages are done. noreply 08:46, January 7, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, just notify me to update the game links in MonsterInfo. I've saved the configuration so it'll be less messy next time. That bot run was a difficult one :P noreply 08:50, January 7, 2016 (UTC)
No, it was just that the bot was matching DQ VI to DQ VII, DQ VIII, and similar case for II, IV, IX, etc. There were extra rules to make sure the bot avoided being silly and changing it to DQ II{{!}}I. Plus, one of the IV's in the request you put up was meant to be an IX XDnoreply 08:55, January 7, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding bot requests

Because of my future workload, I will do new bot requests when the page is more full (e.g. 10 to 15 requests). It'll speed up my work, since going through all the pages takes time, and it can be decreased when done in bulk.

I hope this is fine with you! noreply 11:39, January 8, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, and yes, good luck with finishing those tasks! It must be pretty difficult - most pretty big games/MMOs wikis have just one or two contributors with so many items, monsters, maps, quests etc. to manage. Props to you in holding it up! noreply 11:50, January 8, 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I've had my experience at MapleWiki - just a friend and me doing 50 or so edits a day. Sooo hard to manage, with so many red links, old images, etc. Hopefully the bot is helping you out just that one bit :) noreply 11:55, January 8, 2016 (UTC)
Ahh. If YogsBot had admin rights, I believe I could run through mass deletes or file renames too. Anyway, off to bed for me, talk later! noreply 12:02, January 8, 2016 (UTC)
Will work on it all at once in the near future, along with Pokemon Wiki and other requests. Sorry this isn't being done earlier! noreplyz 11:20, February 4, 2016 (UTC)
Yep, I assume you mean the same for the Pokemon template parameter ones too. noreplyz 11:22, February 4, 2016 (UTC)
It might be able to move sections (though I'm having some issues with the bot, there is a bug that hasn't been fixed). Depends on the scale of the move (if it's just repositioning it in an article, it should be easier than moving to another page). noreplyz 05:05, February 29, 2016 (UTC)
Hey, I plan to do it in the next few days. I was having a bug where my IP was globally banned - it has been fixed recently and I'm going through the bot requests from Pokemon first. noreplyz 12:38, March 10, 2016 (UTC)
Hey, the first one seemed to not have any hits, I'll double check later. The second romaji task was completed with 1002 pages changed. noreplyz 09:28, April 5, 2016 (UTC)
Ahh, I see what went wrong with the second bot run. I'll redo both soon. noreplyz 09:36, April 5, 2016 (UTC)
Hey there, I have other commitments that need to be attended to (VSTF, exams and other wikis), and since these bot tasks are done as volunteer work, there is less time to work through the tasks. For the categorisation, it may be possible for you to go through using some scripts in the dev wiki: w:c:dev:MassCategorization or maybe w:c:dev:CategoryRenameAuto-update can do a fair few of the tasks you requested. noreplyz 12:32, April 8, 2016 (UTC)
Yeah - it was just that you messaged me, thought you needed it done soon or something. noreplyz 13:02, April 8, 2016 (UTC)
Category:Dragon Quest Monsters enemies → Category:Dragon Warrior Monsters monsters going from Dragon Quest to Dragon Warrior. Not sure if this is what you meant. noreplyz 08:03, April 11, 2016 (UTC)
No problems. After I complete all the bot runs on the page now, I'll be temporarily not doing bot runs, feel free to contact others (maybe on Community Central) for assistance. noreplyz 08:15, April 11, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, there's quite a lot there, but workload is piling up and I may have to delay that work till May. noreplyz 08:18, April 11, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Name

What isn't pink? noreply 00:03, January 9, 2016 (UTC)

I'm slightly confused. Is it meant to be? :P noreply 00:06, January 9, 2016 (UTC)
Seems like it highlights pink for VSTF members. noreply 00:14, January 9, 2016 (UTC)


I may have overwritten some already uploaded images but I'm not sure since the system didn't warn me. Were EvilMech and Esterk already uploaded? Frostare (talk) 21:50, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

OK, so do I have to add Steldemon since that one is missing?Frostare (talk) 21:53, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Oh, cool. =) And this has nothing to do with anything but do you mind if I ask what country are you from? Frostare (talk) 21:59, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Mexico. =) By the way you wanted monsters from DQX right? I just found four I'm sure you'll like  ;)Frostare (talk) 22:04, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

OK I found the names and am uploading them. =) By the way, you don't happen to have a full pic of Rhapthorne 2 do you?Frostare (talk) 22:17, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

I suppose their names will change when they get released in english right? for now I hope this suffices. =)Frostare (talk) 22:25, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

By the way if you're looking for quality I'd wait for Terrornodon and Maulrus too since they aren't the best quality. I only ripped them for the sake of my monster lists: and (talk) 20:43, January 21, 2016 (UTC)

Coming Back

Hey Ellis, what I meant when I said I was going away over Christmas was that I wasn't going to get back until school began, I am back now and am ready to help out however I can. TheHungrySage (talk) 23:31, February 1, 2016 (UTC)

Gaming footer

Hi, Ellis99!

A user recently nominated the Dragon Quest wiki for inclusion in our gaming footer program. I was wondering if you would be interested, as the site meets all of the requirements. Please let me know!

Best regards,

Raylan13@fandom (talk) 17:06, February 17, 2016 (UTC)

Consider it done! Raylan13@fandom (talk) 17:13, February 17, 2016 (UTC)

Hey uh, I made a category page relating to the enemies that are going to appear in Dragon Quest Heroes II. I made the page already but I'm stuck right now. When I try to put a page onto that category like a slime for example, but when I add the category "Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twins Kings and Ending of the Prophecy enemies" on the add categories spot, the category won't be posted. Is there something I did wrong on the category I made? The IT 15 (talk) 21:36, February 25, 2016 (UTC)

You are denying your wiki the potential to grow

Concerning your...fixation on trying to appear independent from Woodus' wiki, there are several large flaws in your logic. Firstly, the information hosted on Woodus' wiki is not unique at all; spell power and game mechanics are part and parcel to Dragon Quest. It does not matter which sites host the information as it is universal in regards to the series. There is no such thing as being "independent" in this regard as the information will always be the same. Following your logic, you would never allow yourself to grow grass in your yard because that is what your neighbor has done, and you want to feel special even if your yard looks miserable in comparison as a result.

Further more, you've demonstrated that you are all too willing to censor information with your blanking of the Whip and other weapon family pages after I expanded upon them in every way, increasing the useful information hosted here. Do you have a legitimate reason to justify blanking an entire series of pages down to empty stubs aside for your personal fixations? I very strongly doubt that you do or ever will, but I'm curious as to what your excuses are. The point that I'm making is that you've let your desire for the wiki to be unique override the main point of a wikia: to propagate information. Your foolishness has denied your users the ability to create a cohesive, perfect repository of knowledge for the series and destroyed your own credibility. If you continue to be a hindrance to this site I will present this case to the administrators of wikia as a whole, where your flaccid performance will be reviewed and your privileges revoked. You can do your best to fight that, looking even more foolish and incompetent as a result, or you can do the logical thing and allow knowledge-broadening edits to be made naturally and fluidly. (Follower of Light (talk) 15:42, March 17, 2016 (UTC))

Hey Ellis, I know that I'm not the most qualified user to be calling the shots, but it does appear like Follower_Of_Light was indeed not plagarising, as he was the one that wrot ethe articles in the first place. I've talked to him, and he's going to do his best to follow the layouts that you've written for pages, but as to him insertng information that we are missing this should be permitted. TheHungrySage (talk) 01:16, March 18, 2016 (UTC)


Hey Ellis99, I wanted to ask where did you get the name "Thuggler" for that monster?Frostare (talk) 19:08, March 25, 2016 (UTC)

I already e-mailed the correct name (Peekabogre) to Woodus and they will change it soon. I found them in DQM Super Light.Frostare (talk) 19:22, March 25, 2016 (UTC)

Way ahead of you! =)Frostare (talk) 20:45, April 17, 2016 (UTC)

I know...

I'm taking my time now to confirm they're of adequate quality. It may have happened when I scanned them and rotate them so I'm trying my best not to rotate them now, for the spanish DQ wiki's sake too.Frostare (talk) 14:50, April 18, 2016 (UTC)

Oh I see

So that's why you removed the images! Sorry, I didn't got the notice of a new message and that's why I didn't know. I still think they are the newest images in existance (they came from the DQ 25th anniversary encyclopedia). Anyway, could you please not remove the BoltRat? That one came from DQVII 3DS newest artwork, like the TimeSage, so it's definitely new.Frostare (talk) 16:07, April 19, 2016 (UTC)

Understood. =)Frostare (talk) 17:34, April 19, 2016 (UTC)


Hello Ellis, could you please delete the first Rashaverak.png file? Since I gotta edit for two wikis these mistakes sometimes happen. =)Frostare (talk) 00:12, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

Aw thanks! I'll probably do so. And sorry about Rashaverak, its tail is too far to where the staples are that I can't do much with that. And I'm not willing to tear my book apart. =) Frostare (talk) 16:43, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

Yes I've been scanning them from Ghoul onward. I wish they came out as perfect as they are in the book itself.Frostare (talk) 17:44, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

BoltRat, Witch Grachelle and Tantamount are not scanned, however. Frostare (talk) 17:44, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, but as you can see thanks to this book, even Dragon Quest VII-exclusive monsters have better quality than their original Playstation quality, which I also have. Frostare (talk) 18:01, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

OK, so in those cases where they aren't from the original game's artwork like DQVII, but they aren't from any new game either, how should I name them? DQME - *Monster name* (Monster Encyclopedia)?

Okay, will do that from now on (unless they're from DQVIII, DQIX, DQMJ2Pro and the like =)).Frostare (talk) 18:14, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

Bot question

Hey, yes, in general bots should be able to deal with parameters inside templates. It really depends on what is being changed and how unique the request is. noreplyztalk 09:56, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

Which ones did not go through properly? Could you give me a few sample diffs to explain what went wrong? noreplyztalk 11:41, April 30, 2016 (UTC)
"and ones where enemies is replaced with monsters." Which ones are they? noreplyztalk 11:45, April 30, 2016 (UTC)
Hey! Like I said previously, I won't be able to work on it for a bit longer. I'll contact you when I get the bot requests done. noreplyztalk 09:17, May 9, 2016 (UTC)

Your Message

I may come back; I've just got a lot going on. [ғeldιng] (talk) 20:18, May 9, 2016 (UTC)

You mean new official english names? Not that I know about...Frostare (talk) 04:22, May 16, 2016 (UTC)

So, I'm trying to help u edit the Dragon Quest 1 Red Dragon into Dread Dragon, and ClockMech to Automaton since the ProtoMech does not appear until Orgodemir's first lair and the ClockMech was seen with a Healslime in the Falrod region. Any insight would be greatly appericated. Macdawg (talk) 17:15, June 17, 2016 (UTC)

hey i saw your comment on my dq page, if you want to change it go right ahead. I was wondering what your favorite dq game is because 9 is mine. i love what you do for this wiki, so dont ever stop contributing.

On Builders-related article reversions

Hi there Ellis99.

I was just inquiring about the specific details of the reversions done to the page for Builders itself, as well as the Hero and Heroine characters. If I've done something in error, I'd just like to know about it and I'm particularly confused about the removal of the promotional images for the Hero/Heroine (sourced from credible gaming publications) and especiallly removing citations for the claims such as the possible NX release and the exact dates of the demo releases - don't citations exist so you can demonstrate that the claim is factually accurate?

I'm not trying to be particularly difficult, simply trying to understand how my edits were wrong in order to avoid it in future. I thought it best to ask here on your talk page as I didn't notice any edit explanations in the activity feed.

Thanks, Paranoid Donkey (talk) 06:43, October 1, 2016 (UTC)

Ok I'll change all old monster names I can find. Frostare (talk) 17:53, October 2, 2016 (UTC)

I would like to improve this wiki.

Hi, I am QuestDragon. (Dont ask me how nobody chose this name)

Hi, I would like to say that I really want to improve Dragon Quest Wiki. I feel like this wiki may need me and I am also a fan of Dragon Quest.
