Remake[edit source]

Thank you for the uploads of all the renders from the Remake! Just so you know, we keep enemy pages for different versions split (as is done with the FFIV 3D remake), so "Abzu", "Scorpion Sentinel", etc. will get separate new pages while "Aps" and "Guard Scorpion" will link to them, and vice versa. I'll probably be making the enemy pages when I buy the guide as the game comes out, would be great for others to contribute. Thank you for the great contributions so far!--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator (TC) 18:18, September 24, 2019 (UTC)

Hey there, thanks for the clarification, and sorry for the move. Anyway, I'm very happy to help! ColdRamenTPM (talk) 18:34, September 24, 2019 (UTC)
No worries! Also, when uploading images, it's best to use the consistent name scheme we started here (don't worry about reading the whole thing yet). This will be the name scheme we use soon as we figure out the best way to get a bot to mass-rename images, since it's more SEO and editor-friendly.
For instance, I've renamed this to "Tifa Lockhart from FFVII Remake render", as the name scheme we prefer is "<name> from/in <game> specification" (so if we had images of Tifa that weren't renders, it'd just be "Tifa Lockhart from FFVII Remake". Hope this makes sense (and I'll move the others shortly so you don't have to)!--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator (TC) 18:57, September 24, 2019 (UTC)

Categories[edit source]

Is there a reason why you're removing categories from image pages -- were the images mislabeled somehow? Cat (meowhunt) 20:19, March 18, 2020 (UTC)

Yes. Every category I remove is on a redundant or outdated image, so I transfer the categories to the updated version. I do this so the category page is not flooded with two versions of the same image. ColdRamenTPM (talk) 23:22, March 19, 2020 (UTC)
If we don't need a given copy of an image any more, it's better to tag it with {{Delete}} or {{Dup}}, those both will flag the file for deletion. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 05:34, March 20, 2020 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

Hi, thanks for uploading VIIR screenshots. Just a few things to keep in mind:

  1. It's not required (yet), but we're phasing in standard image naming across the wiki. This'll eventually be done by a bot, and probably sometime after VIIR releases. As an example of how this works, "Tifa bartending from FFVII Remake.png" (and if there was equivalent artwork, "Tifa bartending from FFVII Remake screenshot.png"). The bot will eventually rename all these anyway, but it's something to keep in mind.
  2. More to the point, /Gallery pages generally are still supposed to only include images that have encyclopedic value. As a rule of thumb, if an image is only included on a Gallery page, it probably doesn't need to be on the wiki. The exception is if it is a very unique image that genuinely can't be fit anywhere else, or if the intention is for it to be included elsewhere.

Thank you!--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 01:07, April 1, 2020 (UTC)

Hey Techno, thanks for letting me know about this. I didn't quite know about that gallery rule, so perhaps I go a bit overboard with how many screenshots I put in there. I just thought it'd be a good idea to consolidate some of the best shots of the characters in one place, but I really should manage the redundant ones. ColdRamenTPM (talk) 21:31, April 5, 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't think I replied to this! Great work on keeping up with the image naming scheme now, and with all the info you've been adding -- really appreciate it! A lot of the images for galleries could probably go on the quest pages I'm working on (ideally the infobox image would be the image that represents the quest in the games' menu), so don't worry too much about uploading an image -- as long as it can go on one page other than the gallery pages, it's definitely worth adding. Thank you!--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 08:20, April 13, 2020 (UTC)

Weapon icons[edit source]

I don't know where you got them from or how, but they're really awesome. Thank you!--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 07:10, April 17, 2020 (UTC)

No problem friend. They're ripped from the game actually- I'll upload all of them soon. ColdRamenTPM (talk) 07:18, April 17, 2020 (UTC)
Awesome. Are you able to rip materia and quest images from the game also?--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 07:23, April 17, 2020 (UTC)
Hi, just checking if you saw the above message!--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC

05:47, April 20, 2020 (UTC)

Yep, I just put some materia icons up. I wanted to let you know I can't really find clean versions of the chapter images, and I'm asking if screenshots that either copy the same shot in the chapter select menu or that summarize the chapter would work as well?ColdRamenTPM (talk) 05:53, April 20, 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, if you can get those, that's fine, providing quality and etc. is good. Thank you!--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 05:57, April 20, 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I don't suppose it's possible to rip icons for the materia slots from the game? To replace the ones we use on Feathered Gloves and etc where we're still using the slot images we had way back from OG.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 07:29, April 25, 2020 (UTC)

I haven't found those just yet, but I'll keep an eye out for sure. ColdRamenTPM (talk) 19:23, April 25, 2020 (UTC)

Sourcing[edit source]

When sourcing the Ultimania, you need to use {{cite|Final Fantasy VII Remake Ultimania|p=}} and then put whatever page it's from next to your addition. I know someone did the English translation of the Ultimania, but I don't know if we can get specific page numbers.

Also, regarding affection mechanics, there's some info about how Tifa and Aerith's resolutions were introduced to be similar to the Gold Saucer date scene, and how originally Cloud wasn't going to hug Tifa so they had to re-record it. I'd add it myself, but I've no clue what page that's written on.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 19:12, May 1, 2020 (UTC)
