Please Rename Me[]

Heya.. I'm just gonna open up a new section because I think I'm going to need your help a lot.. I either come across files that need to be renamed or I accidentally upload the file with the wrong spelling, or wrong letter case. I'm slightly OCD as far as the latter is concerned, so I'm gonna start a list of stuff I need you to rename for me :p (will continually remove the ones you have renamed and add stuff to this list) (i'm back :p)

Thx --Arciel Spira (talk) 10:24, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, not to worry, I am OCD about these things as well, so I'm more than happy to move them for you. Jimcloud 13:40, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

Hey! Sorry to bother you but would you rename the following image files for accuracy??

  • File:LoV_Jormungand.jpg >> LoV_Wrath_Giant.jpg
  • File:Wizer_Staff_Brigade.png >> Wizer_Rod_Brigade.png

Thanks! Kimlasca warrior (talk) 18:56, January 2, 2013 (UTC)

It's no problem. Done and done. By the way, I think we have Blade: Ko, it's the one with the tiger, right? If so, I'll move both it and Blade: Ga to their proper names. Jimcloud 19:10, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
Yes it is! Just edited that in. Thanks a bunch. I'll keep you posted if I find anymore. Kimlasca warrior (talk) 19:45, January 2, 2013 (UTC)

Hey Jim, I don't know how productive you're gonna take this to be.. but is it possible to have these images renamed? Cos it would make it so much easier for me to sort and track my weapon image uploads, especially moving forward. I know.. I was the one who uploaded thse to begin with.. so I kinda blame myself for not having the foresight in this area. (this is just for 1 category of weapons, but if you would indulge me, then I'd give these to you 1 weapon group at a time)

Thanks. Also List of Final Fantasy XI Weapons/Great Axes is done :D --Arciele Spira (talk) 05:00, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

I've been looking for some mindless menial work to do around the wiki, so I did those, and would be willing to do the other weapon groups over the next few days as well. C A T U S E 06:43, September 1, 2013 (UTC)
much thanks! should i leave the list here or somewhere that doesn't violate Jim's talk page quite as much?--Arciele Spira (talk) 07:00, September 1, 2013 (UTC)
You can leave it on my talk page or just the noticeboard especially since I'm forgetful and if it's out in the middle of projectspace somebody will slap me for not working on it if I put it off for too long <.< C A T U S E 07:03, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade[]

I think I found you on the game :D I would have said hi there, but sadly my game is buggy where I can't input text at all, including the code for the special summon stone :< Which one did you get? If you need a code I have extra!  Cecily Redwingslogo.png  06:25, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, nice to sort of psuedo-see you there! I have sadly not obtained a summon stone :( if you have an extra code, I will gladly take it. Jimcloud 06:30, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
Hopefully this works for you And if a spot in your party opens up please let me know?  Cecily Redwingslogo.png  06:57, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
Yup, that worked like a charm! Thank you very much :D and I will let you know if there happens to be a free spot in my party. Jimcloud 07:01, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
I'm glad that worked! Did you get just Cloud, or was it Cloud & Zidane because I had gotten 2 emails with the same code so I wasn't sure exactly how that was going to turn out.  Cecily Redwingslogo.png  07:27, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
I got both Cloud and Zidane, yeah. Weird that you would get two emails with the same code, though, how odd. Jimcloud 07:34, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
It may be because I had initially signed up that particular email without the referral code and then signed up and with the same email with all the various codes I found online (lol) but in the end only ended getting 2 emails-one declaring the code for just cloud and the another for cloud & zidane.  Cecily Redwingslogo.png  07:44, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

I've been screen capping images using Screenshot Ultimate but it sucks a bit since there is a delay making it hard for me to get some images. If you know of better (free) app that can take pics instantly I can get pictures of Carbuncle & Atlas before the text shows up. I have already gotten some of the things screencapped, I just need to sort and process images later.  Cecily Redwingslogo.png  21:24, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

You could try to take a picture of them during the battle, hoping that there's not some sort of weird effect that takes place as the screenshot is taken. It might be best to take a couple, actually. Also, I didn't think of it, but a pink fragment picture would be cool as well. And thank you :D Jimcloud 21:45, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Jim, have you transmuted any items yet in the game? Even if you transmute something that has been maxed evolved, then new item will be without any limit breaking (and thus can still be evolved), right? I think someone from my brigade is lying to me about it to mess me up because they didn't like how helpful I've been to the others (like wtf?) I've organized a ton of data from the Japanese wikis and comparing weapons and abilities to figure out what would benefit most from transmuting since my crystal suppply is limited.  Cecily Redwingslogo.png  15:51, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

I just checked, and no, they do not carry over. The naturally higher level limit of the higher quality weapon is there, but the level limit raising doesn't transfer over. My Sargatanas went from max level 125 to max level 120. Jimcloud 17:23, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

*Pokes very hard*[]


Atelier.Eladrin (talk) 03:22, December 25, 2012 (UTC) Except that page is implying that they were branded by the god pulse, when that is CLEARLY Anima doing the branding....hence why I have and will continue to keep correcting it. jeez, if you're going to have info on here, at least make sure it's accurate...which if you're an admin you aren't doing very well at....with all due respect of course.

Final Fantasy XIII Ultimania Omega identifies the figure with a half-covered face as the god Pulse. You can read more details on this from Pulse's article.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 04:04, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the tip! Really, really helpful!! I noticed some of the pictures weren't in there and I managed to get screens of them from the game. I keep getting 'You cannot upload photos on this wiki' when I try to upload them though. Any assistance? :)


I like you. Can you lock the Forum:Discussing "related" games. I put in the Labyrinth. 16:08, January 9, 2013 (UTC)

Done. Jimcloud 17:10, January 9, 2013 (UTC)

XI statuses[]

Should Bind, Rasp, Frost, Flash, and Choke get their own status pages? If so, I'll put them on Articles to Move. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:28, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

Hmm, not sure. Probably a good idea, though, especially with Flash, Rasp, and Choke, which are abilities in other games as well. (Maybe the others too? Dunno.) Jimcloud 22:45, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

FF Airborne Brigade - Cross-Slash file edition[]

Jim, you mentioned in the FF Airborne Brigade ability section (here) that "Coss-Slash" was a summon stone instead of an ability. Well, both Stone and Ability share the same sprite. If you don't believe me, here's a screenshot that shows it along with other abilities:

FFAB Ability - Cross-Slash (in Imgur)

Hope that clarifies a bit the subject being discussed. I hope you could edit that change you made.

MorrisSEX (talk) 14:41, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, they both look the same, I know, but their backgrounds are different, which was my point. Even if they look the same minus backgrounds, they are effectively different images, so we should have both. Jimcloud 18:43, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

FF Airborne Brigade Ability Images[]

Hey, I just noticed that the backgrounds and some stuff for the ability images change depending on whether it's N, N+, R, R+, SR, and SR+ (i.e. a dark blue frame appears in N+, etc.). It's also happening with the summon stones/weapons. Do you think we should post those images as well??? Kimlasca warrior (talk) 20:24, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I've been wondering about that myself as well... the difference almost seems too minute to merit more than one image for each, but I don't know :\ You could try making a forum page for this, perhaps with two images shown for a side-by-side comparison, and see what the Wiki at large thinks about it. I'm kind of torn, myself. Jimcloud 20:32, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

Happy birthday![]

Whoa there![]

The renders shouldn't really be in with the artwork, since they are in-game images, not art (and I have a complete set of all FFIX weapon artwork coming, so there's definitely enough to justify weapon artwork as its own category). Otherwise, all the enemy renders, character renders, and really, every image taken from the game would all be lumped into the artwork categories. Espritduo (talk) 00:38, March 19, 2013 (UTC)

I... didn't put them with the artwork, did I? Jimcloud 00:40, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, but I think I see what you think you saw. All those images with the scratchy background aren't artwork, they're images of the renders scanned and cropped from the Ultimania. It seems we have those scans of renders, and then the actual renders as separate images, and then a small smattering of real concept art. The actual concept artwork is considerably different from the renders. Espritduo (talk) 00:44, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
Oooooh, does this mean I can get out the deletion stick and smack some scans of renders? Jimcloud 00:46, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
Sure, knock yourself out! I mean, they look nice, but the artwork will look better, and the true renders are the "legit" versions, I suppose. Espritduo (talk) 00:57, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
I guess the question would be whether or not the arted renders display anything different than the renders do sufficiently to keep them. Are the differences (coloration, for example) a quirk of the scanner that uploaded them, or actual differences from the printing of the Ultimania? Jimcloud 01:24, March 19, 2013 (UTC)
Probably a combination of both. No printed/scanned reproduction is going to be perfect. Only a purely digital reproduction, like the render-grabs we have from the game itself, show the 100% true coloring of the object. But, looking at the Final Fantasy IX weapons, they do work well on that page, no? I dunno, it's up to you.Espritduo (talk) 02:27, March 19, 2013 (UTC)

Userpage request[]

I know this is like the second time I've asked this, lul, but would you mind restoring my userpage and its 2 (or however many there were) subpages when you have a moment? Thanks. --Shockstorm (talk) 07:24, June 2, 2013 (UTC)

Looks like Yuan beat me to it. She left in the revisions where you nominated it for deletion, though, so you may want to put it back to wherever it was when it had content on it. Jimcloud 15:37, June 2, 2013 (UTC)

Noobish mistake[]

Hey there. I had a really bad day and decided to write a rant on my userpage when I got home, and I wanted to have this video there, but I used the same codes I used when I put videos on my VIII walkthrough a while back. So now, this video that does not have anything at all related to FF is now uploaded here apparently ( I apologize, I really didn't know this would happen, but if one of the staff users could delete it, it would be great. Again, I'm sorry. SetzerLeonhart (talk) 23:59, June 10, 2013 (UTC)

FFXI Location pages[]

heya. leaving you a note here cos I think you're the only one who cares. I intend to remodel the FFXI location pages.. mainly because the current format we adopted isn't practical or particularly useful. I looked to areas from X, XII and XIII for a sense of style (Dalmasca Estersand, Besaid, Hanging Edge) and what to keep or not and came up with this. I think this will probably be for the better cos theres less content to actually "create" and will make it easier on everyone (ie. just you and me lol), even if we cut a bit of the "trivial info" out. Don't worry I'm not asking you to do anything - moving forward I intend to slowly convert existing location pages to this template. I have another idea for town areas but one thing at a time, Serah--Arciel Spira (talk) 06:34, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

Looks good to me. Jimcloud 06:38, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

FFXIV Content Location[]

Hi Jimcloud!

I wanted to post a quick question for the administrators here about the content of Final Fantasy XIV, so if you could share this also with members of the team that weren't directly contacted, it would be much appreciated :)

Obviously all of you are much more knowledgeable about the game series than I am, so I'd like your opinion on where the content for the game should be placed and where best it would benefit the players:

  1. On the this wiki
  2. On a specific FFXIV wiki

If the second, would you be willing to assist in revamping the existing FFXIV wiki?

Thanks for your time and input!

Best regards, Raylan13 (talk) 18:36, July 22, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you[]

Wow, blast from the past. It's great to see you're still around. That must have been years ago – I don't really have much interest in that series any more.
As far as I recall, I lost patience and abandoned the Wikia version of that site due to Oasis issues and a rather nasty, unfortunate misunderstanding with some fellow over my removal of stub pages. I didn't intend to stay associated with Wikia, but I'm still devoting my spare time to a wiki for a different gaming franchise, sort of conditionally swallowing my pride on the Oasis skin complaints because the series in question *really* warrants and deserves a good, visible encyclopedia at this time.
I don't know what's happening at MMWiki now, but I do offer well wishes to anybody editing it. You folks have done a great job with this site, that's for certain. Thanks very much for the kind comment – and I hope all's been well on your side. --LoK-Aevum (talk) 20:29, August 8, 2013 (UTC)

Walkthrough deletions[]

We're currently going through and deleting incomplete walkthroughs on the wiki, and weren't sure if you were going to finish yours. Your walkthrough won't be deleted if either a) you edit within a week or b) it's moved to userspace. Thanks, C A T U S E 05:34, November 26, 2013 (UTC)

BD Stuff[]

I was planning on creating some of the BD location pages that we need. I was just wondering if you had enemy formation data on hand (like you did with chest items in your sandbox). Otherwise I could find some myself. Also, I have no way of taking images of my game, so the pages I make might be pretty bare unless you have some images or I manage to find some good screenshots. --Shockstorm 00:30, April 9, 2014 (UTC)

Anybody with a miiverse account can take screenshots via Miiverse; it's how I got mine. And no, I don't have enemy formation data on hand, sorry :( I could find it for you, if you like; that's the easy part of the whole thing. Jimcloud 03:48, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I didn't release it was that easy to take screenshots, lol. I'm towards the end of Ch. 2 now, and I've been grinding a bit so I don't mind getting enemy data. Unless you have an online/game guide sort of thing that gives enemy formation data. Otherwise I could do some of the areas as I go through the game. --Shockstorm 04:08, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
I'm afraid I don't, no :\ That being said, I do need to go back through and test every enemy for every status effect so I can get their templates mostly cleared of all that junk, so certainly I have a reason to collect enemy formations and such. Jimcloud 05:08, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good. I have free time this weekend to try and get some images. I can handle the enemy formation data for Mt. Fragmentum since I got that a while ago. Yesterday I beat Praline - and I thought the previous asterisk bosses were weird, lol. This game is really something else. --Shockstorm 03:48, April 11, 2014 (UTC)

Well, my main party is Cloud, Zidane, Shantotto, and Lightning, which I took to 99 three times and decided they were good for now. Then I made a new party; Aerith, Prishe, Onion Knight, and Tidus, which I was not quiite as happy with, I took them to 99 and ditched. Now I'm working on a party of Yuna, Paine, Lilisette, and Celes, and they're almost to 99; when they get there I've got a party ready consisting of Galuf, Vivi, Ciaran, and, uhh, who was it.. bah, I forget.
