Unlabeled unofficial art as the main image on pages[edit]

For a small number of obscure Digimon like ChaosPiedmon and BlackGuilmon the main image on their pages is an unofficial fan recolouring. Why do we allow this? Its not clearly labelled and most readers just assume its official art, which makes it misleading. At least the recoloured artwork in the image gallery for the digimon I mentioned is labelled.

Adding an additional admin or two[edit]

I have received an e-mail or two saying that we could use additional administrative help around here. Looking at the current admin list, I did note that two have not been active in years, and took away the permissions. I did see that a couple have been active recently, but is there anyone here that has been interest in joining the administrative team?

If so, please reply here. We can schedule a time to chat, and I will review your previous edits and chat with other active admins. Thanks. --Koroku (talk)

im an admin on the dub wiki and do a lot here as well. i focus more on the dub, with my main focus the dub wiki, but someone on both like that could be beneficial.Muur (talk) 23:44, 5 April 2023 (CDT)
I am an administrator on the dub wiki as well, having had nearly ten years worth of administrating experience across multiple wikis. I consider myself the meticulous sort who'll clean up the places that need it like the category for stuff marked to be deleted. Chimera-gui (talk) 00:43, 6 April 2023 (CDT)
I would like to join.
I've been here for a few years, and I constantly find information and references missing from pages, as well as multiple times where I've found fanart left in the site's archives.
I would also like to mention my contributions regarding the Voice Actors pages, various Toei clean art, as well as the Vital Bracelet sprites and several that would have been lost, such as Digivice: & Digivice Ver.Complete, coverage of the Digimon New Century, artwork and info, plus the sprites from Digimon Survive. Devie. (talk) 10:14, 6 April 2023 (CDT)
they wouldn't "have been lost", they've been on the dub wiki for years. Tbh I always thought you were just taking them from there. The new century stuff I was doing for years but just left it to you when you started because it saves me time. If you weren't doing it, I still would be. Similar for the card game stuff. I was doing it for years only for kirara to appear and start doing it. You and kirara have saved me hundereds of hours by stepping up but if neither of you had the content would still be done: just by me. I've spent hundreds, prob thosands, of hours across both wikis (dub wiki and wikimon) I'll never get back the last few years doing updates. The Survive stuff, admittedly, wouldn't have been, though the vb stuff would've as I know where to get those. People stepping up to do this stuff is nice for my time but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be done if you and kirara didn't exist. You can look at my edits over the last 10 years to see all the stuff I was doing before you guys took the load off my backMuur (talk) 12:05, 6 April 2023 (CDT)
1- Both Digivices are from 2020 and nobody showed interest in doing it before me, quite the contrary, you just got in the way thinking that I was listing the enemies of the Digivice: based on assumptions, and I would give credits if I had taken it from there
2- I see no reason for it to bother you then
3- again, I don't see why this seems to bother you since you yourself say it saves you time
4- good for you
5- "if you and kirara didn't exist", choice of words a little strange, but ok
6- it's not because you work ten years in a company that this automatically guarantees you a promotion above someone younger who may be more capable, and let's face it, in recent years your "job" is limited to crying on Discord and trying to attack new users until they give up on this site Devie. (talk) 14:51, 6 April 2023 (CDT)
for what it's worth, i think the best choice would probably be User:Pluvia. chimera probably isnt active enough, and the above for devie and also [1] isnt really how i think users should be talking to each other.Muur (talk) 00:29, 7 April 2023 (CDT)
I'm neutral in this debate and dont want to be an admin. But I think who should ever be an admin shouldnt be scaring off new users (Is there evidence Muur has done this?) and should aim to be polite and courteous to all users even if they make mistakes. Which Devie has just demonstrated the opposite of. Penguin (talk) 04:44, 7 April 2023 (CDT)
asking users for a source is scaring them off I guess. That's even what set Devie off as I asked them for their source on their above edit and instead of giving one said I had no brain. Providing source is wiki 101.Muur (talk) 09:09, 7 April 2023 (CDT)
I don't think Muur should be an admin to be completely honest. You have to be an active editor indeed, but you have to also be able to properly communicate with others and have certain mediator skills which is something I'm afraid he is lackin just yet. I think Pluvia or Devie are good candidates, if they are willing to take the spot. On another hand, I personally feel Chimera would be a good candidate as well, if only because they are an admin on the Digimon wiki already. I think having the same admins in both sites can be hindering and detrimental for the Digimon community.
you said the same Admin is good then said it is bad. And generally arguments only happen as you and devie and others get mad at being asked for sources and often times the sources provided don't say what the edit says. Like, a new rule had to be addded when multiple people lied about the contents of art books trying to push their made up lore. And this was *this year*. Which shows how important it is. People were making stuff up and/or using mistranslated sources.Muur (talk) 09:19, 7 April 2023 (CDT)

Koroku, I know you asked for volunteers, but this has been rather hard to watch. My own recommendation, if it means anything, would be to reach out to Pluvia and/or KiraraKidohara and ask if they'd be willing to take on an administrative role. --TMS (talk) 12:56, 7 April 2023 (EST)

Sometimes, it's useful to ask for volunteers, and then see how they volunteer - and then the resulting interactions. I have gotten some valuable insights here, exactly what I was looking for! --Koroku (talk) 11:57, 16 April 2023 (CDT)

Rule Change on Citation Specificity[edit]

As a result of recent events, I've made an update to the rules that states: "When citing a book or series, be as specific as possible. For books, include a page number, and for anime or manga, specify the episode or chapter." That way people can more easily verify an edit. If anyone notices a book reference that's lacking a page, please add it or bring it to my attention (I own a number of Digimon books and may be able to make the addition, as I recently did on Gorimon's page). --TMS (talk) 15:40, 16 December 2022 (EST)

Would it be possible to get a nice, consistent, Wikipedia-style ref template for book/print citations to better facilitate this? I've been meaning to ask this for a good long while for both this and referencing other mediums, because honestly sometimes I lose track when doing it manually. I'd be glad to create such a template myself, if doing so were permissible. --Pluvia (talk) 07:45, 20 December 2022 (CST)

Suggestion: bold lettering in the stat tables[edit]

Since a lot of Digimon had inconsistent levels and attributes and what not across various pieces of media over the years, I was wondering if bold lettering could be used to indicate their Reference Book traits (and/or their generally most consistent and current traits). Similar to how "canon" evolutions are put in bold.

For example, Gabumon could have its Type listed as:



While its Attribute is listed as:



--Yamato-san (talk) 16:44, 13 December 2022 (CST)

I suppose I have no objection, but don't want to implement it unless there's agreement from other members. --TMS (talk) 18:07, 13 December 2022 (EST)
if we do that, we need to add the xros wars level as well. the none/- level is technically a different thing. at the least, the drb levels and attributes should be at the top of the list.Muur (talk) 21:23, 13 December 2022 (CST)
Making the "standard" stats clearer definitely makes sense. I dunno about denoting "Xros Wars" level status specifically, but that can't hurt, either. --Pluvia (talk) 07:45, 20 December 2022 (CST)

Human character profiles[edit]

Hi, I was thinking of making a template kind of similar to [the ones used for Digimon profiles] with the switchable tabs -- I thought it'd be cool to have all of the official website profiles on there (I'm willing to do all the translations myself!). But this is a pretty major thing I would be doing to a ton of pages at once, so I wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts before I attempt such a big update...and also I looked at the existing Digimon templates and it's a whole nest of templates that makes my head spin, so I'd appreciate any help demystifying it. Kazari (talk) 00:48, 1 July 2022 (CDT)

Just for the record, I really like this idea! I'm all for anything that makes resources like these more accessible. Ditto other bits of flavor text from over the years, like the DMCG Back Ground stories. --Pluvia (talk) 07:45, 20 December 2022 (CST)

Seeking Localization or Translation?[edit]

Very sorry to intrude, but before making any edits related to it, I wanted to make sure of this. On some Digimon pages, under Profile -> Video Games -> Sunburst/Moonlight, the English is missing, and only the Japanese is there. Sunburst/Moonlight are games that were localized under Dawn/Dusk, and thus the Digimon included in those games have canon English profiles. So is that section asking for someone to translate the given Japanese profile, or is it seeking the in-game description found in Dawn/Dusk? Sorry if this was the wrong place to ask this, but I looked around the wiki for some information on this and was unable to find it. -- Rinmon (talk) 21:04, 31 March 2022 (CDT)
