Could someone delete this (link to "Raid on Kohlingen" article was present here) article for me? No one but me has edited it, so it won't be missed. --CrappyScrap (talk) 18:22, July 10, 2014 (UTC)

I'm wondering whether we need all the screenshots that are currently in Uncategorised Images. They're all from the newest FFXV trailer.

Can images be restored on the wiki that were deleted? If so, these would need to be restored. FFVI SNES Battle for the Frozen Esper.png, FFVI SNES Esper Attack Ancient Castle.png, FFVI SNES Raid on Narshe.png, and FFVI SNES Battle over the Floating Continent.png. These were deleted for some reason. Fenrir9 (talk) 02:25, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

Y Xeno deleted them in November 2014 as duplicated/superseded files, which could mean that there are/were better versions elsewhere on the wiki ... or he was just purging Unused Files at the time and got a bit trigger-happy. Either way, your files are back. Cat (meowhunt) 05:24, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

Hey guys, I don't know if anyone remembers me but I used to be on here a lot a few years ago (Wow...looking back it was yeah it's been a while). Anyway, I had mostly completed a walkthrough for FFVIII and with the remaster coming out I was interested in trying to finish it. I know it was deleted a while back since it wasn't completed but I was hoping someone would be willing to restore the pages for me. They should all be under the main thread of Walkthrough:Final Fantasy VIII/Bond with a number of subpages since I think I got through disk 3 on it. I'll be going back through all the templates and what I wrote to make sure nothing else has changed...and if I need to do more than just request it here to have it restored please let me know. Thanks! Bond_em7 (Owl Me) 12:27, June 11, 2019 (UTC)

Y Two things to keep in mind:
  • If we do a pass on the walkthroughs and find it unfinshed and unedited for a year it's gone again.
  • There's probably quite a few broken links for that have been renamed over the past 3 years, you'll have to fix those yourself. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 12:54, June 11, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks SCM. I'm definitely planning on finishing it in short order and I do plan on going back through completely to make sure things are properly linked (a couple pages are redlinks but I can fix that easily). On that note I found one page that wasn't restored here so if you could do that it would help. Thank you! Bond_em7 (Owl Me) 14:49, July 17, 2019 (UTC)

Oh.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 18:15, February 25, 2015 (UTC)

Hiroyuki Ito could really do with being locked to admins only. We first began having problems back in September 2013 with the user SQEX (though issues with the article itself and the edit warring began back in May), and he was finally blocked in January. However, the fact that he has continued to come back to this article and repeatedly add in long-winded passages without sources, using multiple sockpuppet accounts, is quite frankly ridiculous. It is now April 2015, he's been at it for over a year! Drake blocked him yet again today for editing under the name Follow My Lead. Off the top of my head this makes four registered sockpuppets of his that have been blocked, not to mention several attempts as an IP too. I'd hate to lock moderators out of being able to edit the article, but unfortunately there's no option to allow all staff members access, only options for autoconfirmed and admins. Call me lazy if you wish but I'm just sick of seeing him come back thinking he can get away with it again. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 19:10, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Can't Wikia adjust editing right for staff? Admin-only is very limiting and would mean that if a moderator would like to add something to the article it would mean going through the article talk page more often that required. Also, why did this "Hiroyuki Ito" started in the first place? Fanboying over how "perfect" he is? No one's perfect and that stubborn fool of a user doesn't seem to know that. -_- —Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 21:58, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
Well, I think we had to ask Wikia for moderator, I don't know if they would be able to give us an additional protection option to include them as well. This whole business started the minute G-Zay was banned from Wikipedia for his Ito editing, so he then came over here. This will show you the extent he goes to sockpuppet, the fact he's been doing it on Wikipedia and here for ages now just shows a real lack of a life. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 22:03, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
Oh my— He's kind of a danger to Wikis of all kinds. He's like some kind of twisted fanatic.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 22:08, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
He's notorious to the extent that people even made an encyclopedia dr*matica article about him. I support a sysop-level protection, the amount of editing is pretty extreme, and this is clearly a case where he won't go away like most people normally do, sadly. If anyone has anything to add to the page, they can propose it on the talk page. Not sure what to add other than more fanboying/bloating and the odd update which a sysop can do with prodding anyway, though. As for a mod-level protection, we'd have to ask Wikia to provide a new protection level below sysop and above autoconfirmed, and I'm not sure how easy that is to do (I believe SCM said it was stupid hard for them to do).--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 22:13, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
I am totally against sysop level protection. It's not frequent enough. Yesterday, before that January, before that June. We're well equipped to deal with one user every few months. JBed (talk) 22:32, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
We are not going to perma-protect the page, and even if we were, an autoconfirmed level protect would get most of his socks. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 22:46, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
Now it's mentioned, I'm not sure that sysop protection - or asking for a mod level protection - is worth it for the page. It's an eyeroll that we'll get every few months, but unless it becomes more frequent than every few months, not worth it.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 22:58, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
Now I'm reminded why I never take part in discussions anymore. Okay, cool. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 08:43, April 21, 2015 (UTC)

I don't think we should protect it. It is a pain to check all his edits, but he only edits select few articles at least. Sometimes his edits are actually useful. Just need to indiscriminately remove all edits without sources and all pointless fanboying. It takes just a few button presses to revert something after all, it's not the worst thing ever.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 17:14, April 21, 2015 (UTC)

I only wanted to suggest something to make our lives a bit easier, and instead I've just publicly embarrassed myself. If anyone needs me I'll be over here, keeping my mouth shut. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 17:40, April 21, 2015 (UTC)


What did I do as wrong as SQEX (talk) to warrant a block? This ban reeks animosity. You blocked me because I edited the Hiroyuki Ito page, yet all I did was add important hotlinks that were missing from the page. Go and check my additions. Further still, after I solely reduced the info on the page after everybody said it should be reduced (check the Talk Page for the discussion), a user named Mask no Oni (talk) has greatly expanded the 'Game Design' section after my reduction. Despite this, you've given no warning or penalisation to that user. So why do I get blocked for adding virtually nothing to the page and he doesn't?

Also, you claim I warned to not edit the page, but never once was a warning given. I was never told if I ever edit the Hiroyuki Ito page again, I would get blocked. Not once. If it was, I'd have remembered and known better. In actuality, all you did was put a lock on the page and say it was "to prevent edit warriors from pretending to be anons on this page". No mention was made anywhere, not even on my Talk Page, that if I edit the page it will result in a ban.

Therefore, I'm rightfully appealing this ban. If no warning was given, how would I know I was stepping out of line by merely adding correct hotlinks to the page? Even if you had given me the warning to no longer edit the page, I'd have questioned why such a harsh rule was being applied solely to me, especially seeing as I was the one that streamlined the page when everybody was whining about it being to bloated. Yet, after doing this, a user Mask no Oni (talk) has recently added back info that everybody was whining should be reduce, yet you didn't do shit to his account. No block, no warning, nothing...

I'm seriously confused and surprised by you actions here. An explanation is needed and I will hear it. SQEX FF (talk) 06:26, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

You were, in fact, told that if you edited Ito's page again, it would be treated as vandalism. We are quite frankly sick of any and all shit coming from that page and the only reason it's not fully protected is that most of it was being generated by one user, namely you, and because of that, we elected to go straight to blocking. There is no warning given to Mask no Oni because page bloating is only against the rules if being done excessively/disruptingly, and frankly, I don't see the problem with what he added anyway.
Your appeal is denied, and your new account is banned for ban evasion. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 06:39, January 9, 2014 (UTC)
Welp, I give up. I'm done with this community. No point hanging around a place you're heavily disliked. It's not like I'm paid to contribute here, after all. There's much better things to do with my time. 06:54, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

I've just had a look through the edits Mask no Oni made, which in fact are just two small paragraphs and some info moving. Not exactly a great expansion. I'm sure you thought you were doing well, but it does pay to listen to the staff and fellow users. Hopefully you've realised that. Your SQEX account will have its ban lifted in three months. SQEX FF, never. We do not approve of ban skipping and sockpuppeting here. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 12:37, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Bluh C A T U S E 15:18, January 10, 2014 (UTC)[]

Special:Contributions/ has been changing J2e information for weeks now to what looks like more recent ports and has not responded to any of my requests to provide sources or proof. He has made extensive changes to the Final Fantasy IV translations article and I'm questioning whether or not it's good faith. EDIT- I'm not even joking, I'm downloading the fan translation now and will play it to see what's right. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 18:42, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

They tried to redo the edit on Neo Exdeath (see here), and tried adding one of his alternate names to the Dissidia page; I decided to play it safe and revert it, since although I have little experience with translations, I'm certain they intended his name to be translated as Exdeath that time around. Lord Grammaticus (talk) 20:01, January 9, 2014 (UTC)
Fae has blocked after I requested it on IRC. I am unsure about the fan translation edits now because I've found out there are two versions of the J2e, of which I have the 10th anniversary addition which appears to be older. I could have been wrong about all his changing, but edit warring over names is unacceptable. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 20:04, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Requesting a second block of this anon. Despite Fae's instruction to him, after blocking for two hours as a warning, to inform a staff member of his sources regarding the fan translation changes, he has returned and continued to edit the translations and ignoring my messages, of which I have left one more. This is getting ridiculous. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 18:36, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

Y 1 day block should hopefully get his attention. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 21:07, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

He's back, now editing the RPGOne section of the Final Fantasy VI translations article. Best be keeping an eye on this. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 12:39, January 22, 2014 (UTC)

You have to be kidding me, he was editing yesterday and I didn't catch it. That's it, I warned he'd be getting a ban off me this time and it will come if I see this again. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 13:17, February 3, 2014 (UTC)


Request to keep an eye on this guy; he seems to be constantly insulting users through edit summaries and using vile words like "Retarded". How he's been allowed to get away with this is beyond me. I've personally only just noticed him and looked through his edit history. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 09:00, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Oh boy, what a yawn. If he keeps it up, block him, but (at least for the moment) he's making productive edits. :/ C A T U S E 12:53, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Last comment in the block section[]

I feel like if the person had actually applied that "better things to do" logic when they actually needed it most instead of trying to "salavge" some semblance of victory by appearing indifferent and getting the last word, they might never have been blocked to begin with...

That said, will the block of the IPs they last used (if any) affect the block on their main account? I've seen people have their blocks lengthened for being similarly persistent, and I forget if that's how things are done here. Lord Grammaticus (talk) 07:55, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Eh, if he's as gone as he says he is, we won't need to apply any IP blocks this time.
It's typical (but not required) to make blocks longer for repeat offenders, but beyond that there's no guideline on how long to block someone. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 08:20, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

FFT grid images used improperly[]

For example, File:At the Gate of Limberry Castle OH.png.

The images were created by user Xifanie of, rather than ripped from the game, so they can't use the SECopyright fair use claim, since it's a derivative work. As a side note, the image is not a low-resolution version, but rather was probably ripped via a screencap and then edited in Paint (given the white margins).

At the least, the image pages should give proper credit. Maybe clip them properly and don't display them stretched. --Raijinili (talk) 08:41, December 13, 2014 (UTC)

While we here at the staff noticeboard appreciate you letting us know this, the staff noticeboard is usually for things that need admin activity to be resolved, which this decidedly does not.

Personally, I have aimed to put info on where I got the file to the file page if it is more than just a simple screenshot even if I think it is SE copyright file.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 17:52, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
Moot point now, but: It's not SE copyright. SE does not have complete rights to it, since there is originality (for example, the layout and presentation) that wasn't by SE. Beside that, it's not fair use. --Raijinili (talk) 03:16, December 14, 2014 (UTC)
I could've sworn I got those images from Caves of Narshe, but looking at their Maps pages they're no longer there, so maybe my memory is just bad? Also, back then, we didn't have a lot of copyright templates so SECopyright was just the generic "slap this on everything" template.
Anyways, the way I set up {{Battle information FFT}} comes off as sloppy and unprofessional even without accounting for copyright problems, especially when we have the Map extension up and running, or could just generate Dissidia-like maps for Lua or something. What I'll do for now is move them all to {{OCopyright}} crediting Xifanie's work (though as Kelt says, they are still SE-copyright), and sometime soon redesign the Tactics maps.
Sorry about that. C A T U S E 18:48, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. (Xifanie says she herself made those images.) --Raijinili (talk) 03:16, December 14, 2014 (UTC)

Uncategorised Images[]

Every time I come back there's more cluttering up this space, and we're currently debating on the IRC whether to actually keep all the images I've just been deleting, the ones that have been sat there since the 13th and apparently some users said to keep but have done nothing about moving them. Can I ask that maybe I'm not the only one to be checking and clearing it out? I'm often gone for several weeks at a time now meaning they're just sat there and users aren't being told where they went wrong with uploading.

I noticed that in "FF Series (Cont'd)" we lack Final Fantasy XV which we should have added like two years ago, even though it only has a demo. Plus, "Future Releases" should get World of Final Fantasy. And Explorers should probably be moved to either "Latest Games" or removed altogether since it's available in Japan and I don't suppose we'll get international release because if they planned to they'd announce the localization on E3 2015 which they didn't do. And maybe Bravely Second: End Layer to "Future Releases" since localization for the next year have been announced.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 22:56, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

about FFVII remake, it's very likely that we'll need an article for it once they announce the official title. should we create an article now and use "Final Fantasy VII Remake" as a placeholder title? Monterossa (talk) 08:54, June 26, 2015 (UTC)
C'mon guys, I created a new section for discussing topnav stuff about 5 hours before you left these comments. :(
We can't say for sure if FFVII Remake will need it's own page yet. We don't know how much will be changed from the original and if it's not enough of a change it won't warrant a new page. Like, if they make it into some variety of ARPG, that will need to be a new page as covering both versions on one page will be difficult if not impossible.
And before anyone brings up War of the Lions, I'm pretty sure that's not meant to have it's own page, we've just never gotten around to merging it into the main Tactics page. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 11:06, June 28, 2015 (UTC)

Bravely Second: End Layer categories[]

Since the game is called Bravely Second: End Layer the categories should be named this but a lot are still called just Bravely Second which is confusing. Could someone go through and rename these categories so they are correct and then obviously delete the ones that are not?--Xion V. (talk) 05:52, March 9, 2016 (UTC)

Wiki Directory links[]

The links to "Category:Articles needing images" and "Category:Articles with incomplete tables" in Forum:Fora Rules and Wiki Directory need to be fixed as they have not been decapitalised. I'd do it myself but it's protected to admins only. --Leon95 03:37, May 10, 2016 (UTC)

Bravely Default Ba'al and asterisk holder enemy pages[]

The Ba'al enemy pages from Bravely Default should now have the tag (Bravely Default) since they appear in Bravely Second as well. It would be smart to do so now before anyone makes the Bravely Second enemy pages.--Xion V. (talk) 04:17, May 18, 2016 (UTC)

  • Adding on to Ba'al pages is the asterisk holder enemy pages (such as Braev, Praline, etc.) since they return as enemies in Bravely Second they should probably have the tag (Bravely Default boss) now as well. So same as what I said before.--Xion V. (talk) 05:37, May 23, 2016 (UTC)

Link fixing[]


Done. Cat (meowhunt) 23:18, May 30, 2016 (UTC)

Move category[]

I am not sure how to use the bot thing, but the Villains category should be deleted (which I also can't figure out how to do) and moved to the Antagonists category so as to fit better.--Xion V. (talk) 08:52, July 29, 2016 (UTC)

Y Done. --Leon95 00:49, July 30, 2016 (UTC)

Something odd about the Category:Games[]

I noticed that Final Fantasy V is not between FFIV: The After Years and FFVI. Instead, it is incorrectly between FF Type-Next and FFVII G-Bike. I ask for someone who could fix this in the shortest time possible. Thanks in advance.--Norman Fong Ochoa (talk) 17:42, September 19, 2016 (UTC)

There's no enemy stats template for FFBE enemies and I'm not sure how to make one so....--| ShiroxCloud(talk) 04:33, May 21, 2017 (UTC)

New article for a piece of fan content[]

After reviewing the criteria for fandom-related articles, I request permission for an article for Final Fantasy VII: Machinabridged, a Machinima parody of FF7 by Team Four Star. Aside from the sizeable YouTube viewer count rivaling (and in some cases exceeding) that of Dead Fantasy, it's my understanding that the iTunes/Amazon sale of the parody's soundtrack—entirely featuring tracks from the original game reorchestrated by Cliff "AinTunez" Weinstein—is legally sanctioned by Square Enix, similar to Erutan. I've highlighted a comment from the AinTunez account confirming this. Would this be adequate for inclusion? SubZeroSilver (talk) 23:38, October 29, 2017 (UTC)

I think what they are saying there is that they don't need Square Enix's approval to release a cover album since they don't use any samples by them.
I had never heard of it but googling it now, it seems to be popular. It doesn't seem to have been acknowledged by SE or by a big gaming journalism outlet though, which was the crux when drafting the fandom content policy.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 16:01, October 30, 2017 (UTC)
So this subject isn't suitable as it stands? Because I have a contact who said there was confirmation of a contract from the Team Four Star account itself (TFS has replied to YouTube comments before), but they can't recall where; all I know from them is that the AinTunez comments weren't what my contact was talking about. TFS have stated that they have had sponsorship from Square Enix for a Final Fantasy XIV "Let's Play" series (opening as such with this video), but that's a different topic altogether. About the only reference from a significant third-party media outlet I could find on this is a shout-out from UK news website Metro, but that doesn't specialize exclusively in gaming.
I suppose the only other thing to do is ask for clarification directly. Otherwise, unless we can create an article on TFS itself (considering the Square Enix sponsorship), it looks like we may have to drop the subject altogether. SubZeroSilver (talk) 16:37, October 30, 2017 (UTC)

FFBE Modules[]

It's probably a bit lengthy to do, but I think the abilities and unit data for FFBE could use some Module:Data-ifying since there are so many. I'm not sure I'll complete that (since I've just finished with updating the weapons list, and I want to continue working on the units' pages/gameplay), and everything else, but well... Just the Module:Data foundations would be enough? --| ShiroxCloud(talk) 21:45, July 8, 2018 (UTC)

Policies and Guidelines Locking Request[]

The Policies and Guidelines are not locked yet and I'm requesting for locking them all to prevent vandalism. Mariogoods (talk) 09:42, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

N The high traffic and high visibility protection reasons are there for if vandalising those pages could cause serious site wide issues. Aside from the Manual of Style (which used to have a lot more content and as it currently stands is probably not as critical to protect any more), someone screwing with them won't cause significant problems. And also, the policies section isn't new. Rewritten and restructured, yes, but the section of the site has been around since very early on and we've never had a vandalism problem with them significant enough to warrant a protect. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 21:22, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Template is Broken[]

Hello Staff! I created a post on the templates talk page before I found this one so I am posting it here as well just in case. I was hoping somebody could fix the Infobox Enemy Stats FFI Template (although I think the issue is actually realted to Infobox Enemy Stats FFI Data) so that the Pixel Remaster values show up in the stats section? Also it isn't showing the pr prev and pr prev no fields either. Thanks in advance!!! Tythesly (talk) 15:09, 15 December 2021 (UTC)

Y -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 20:39, 15 December 2021 (UTC)


Hello everybody. As I recently discussed on Some Color Mage's talk page, the contents of etymology pages are not etymologies at all. Actually, I checked many of them, and only 10% have etymology next to the meaning. That means that 90% of 2600 "Final Fantasy etymology" pages have no etymology at all on them (about 2300 pages).

From the main page of the Online Etymology Dictionary: "Etymologies are not definitions; they are explanations of what our words meant and how they sounded 600 or 2 000 years ago." Please check out the Online Etymology Dictionary about "Final" and "Fantasy". Another website, Wikipedia's Wiktionary often puts etymology and definition next to each other. Please check out "Final" and "Fantasy".

Can you see the point? Etymology is about the way a word is written: its linguistic (not cultural) root, its prefix and suffix, its phonemes. I dare say: the origins of its spelling. You are not interested in the origin of the spelling of words. You are not interested in etymology! You use that word for something else.

I would like to work towards a satisfactory option. How about "Inspiration"? It would be coherent with the text already on the "Etymology" page: "As the Final Fantasy series draws inspiration from various cultures, mythologies and religions, Eastern and Western alike, it [the section] provides interesting coverage for terms which are not common in English." --Abacos (talk) 20:59, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

I responded to this at Forum:Many proposals concerning etymology. Cat (meowhunt) 00:09, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
Thank you. I didn't see that --Abacos (talk) 14:13, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

Database Dump[]


I was trying to pull down the database dump for Final Fantasy, but it hasn't been done since early last year. Would you be able to do that? Or should I try and contact FANDOM help desk to have them generate it? --AkodoGarou (talk) 08:59, 1 April 2022 (UTC)

I sent in a database dump request. The last time someone requested this it didn't quite work though, so you may need to contact FANDOM if it isn't generated by 24 hours from the time of writing (say). Let us know here if you do that. Cat (meowhunt) 21:06, 1 April 2022 (UTC)
