Sandbox[edit source]

Hi, could you not take stuff away from my sandbox without at least letting me know? Thank you. Mierna 08:20, December 30, 2019 (UTC)

Ah, of course. My bad because I rushed by creating the article for A1C2 -- Eco (talk) 12:04, December 30, 2019 (UTC)

Re: Costume[edit source]

Best to just currently keep it in the Profile section still. As discussed here, and also on the wiki's discord, we are planning to abolish trivia sections. --Miphares (talk) 04:27, January 23, 2020 (UTC)

Editing Opera Omnia pages[edit source]

Hello there, OneEco.
I do not want to come off as horrible in any way, but could you please not invalidate some of the edits I make to Opera Omnia pages of certain Final Fantasy characters by changing my text into less accurate descriptions of what the text says in the Opera Omnia mobile game itself?

If you are trying to make these Affinity Ability descriptions more appealing to look at, that's fine. But when an Affinity Ability says 'Raises [stat] by [number]' instead of 'Increases [stat] by [number]' in-game, I would rather fill the description boxes with the text that you can actually see in Opera Omnia, over something that could potentially confuse people when they read a description from one source, only to find that the game has a description that's very different from what they initially read.

While I really appreciate what you've done for the Wiki, I also feel like we're just stepping on each other's toes when editing pages for the playable characters in this Final Fantasy mobile game.

Anyway, I just thought I would bring this to your attention. Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a good day.
Kind regards, JamesPro93 (talk) 14:55, March 15, 2020 (UTC)

Greetings, my fellow editor.
Don't worry, I'm not taking this into offense, in fact I appreciate your attempt to communicate with me!
As you've said, we are both covering the same game, thus we tend to edit the same pages quite a while.
Since I'm used at my hobby of fantranslating the JP content of this game, I have my own specific wording I use each time a new weapon or armor joins the game. Thus I tend to forget that the GL localization team has a different style of describing than the JP team.
What should we do? Copypaste the style of the weapons that already exist in GL and then update the weapons and armor as they are added into the game?
I'm going to continue my current rhythm until I reach Noctis, since he was the 1st Anniversary character for JP and then reedit the pages considering the agreement we will reach. Or maybe if this happens in the following hours, I can make it earlier... We will see. -- Eco (talk) 16:00, March 15, 2020 (UTC)
Hey, thanks for getting back to me.
I've been thinking about how we should edit these Opera Omnia, and while this might not be the best answer to your question, I hope that this is a solution that can benefit the both of us.
Until the JP content gets translated into the GL version of Opera Omnia, keep trying your best to fantranslate the content into English as you normally do.
Then, when the JP content gets added into the GL version, update the Opera Omnia pages according to how they are presented in the new GL version of the game, since those translations are made by the GL developers themselves and could very well be considered official.
When it comes to Weapons, the descriptions could be either "Increases [blah-de-blah]" or "Raises [something something]", but when it's Armor, it will always be "Raises [stat] by [number]" in the GL version.
I don't see the GL devs changing the descriptions for Affinity Abilities from "Raises" to "Increases", at least where Armor is concerned, anytime soon, since those particular Affinity Abilities aren't necessarily unique to each individual character. Seriously, the amount of Armor items I've maxed out that all share Affinity Ability names like Shatter and Destruction is stupidly high at this point, and I'm not planning to count them all up. (Not yet anyway.)
I don't know if this will entirely stop our edits from clashing with each other, but I hope that this is a good enough plan for editing Opera Omnia pages going forward.

Been a while[edit source]

It's been a long time since I've personally talked with you about something at all, and I don't really have time to dig through the archives to figure out what it was. Anyway, if I remember correctly, Spanish was your native language, right?

I'm not here necessarily to play salesman, but here I see that you've played Secret of Mana. So, I was wondering if you could add one of our satellites to your list of wikis that you edit for?

Here's the scoop: I've been an administrator for the Wiki of Mana since 2018. Some higher-ups of Fandom clued me in on the existence of a Spanish affiliate, which is really hurting for contributions. I figured you might be an appropriate person to contact with your knowledge of the language. Of course, I don't mean to pressure you if Final Fantasy is your first choice. But I would look at it this way: if you really wanted to flex your muscle, here is an opportunity. With that, I know of an Argentine woman who took over the Star Ocean Wiki and is pretty much the go-to in that space. She got started by editing units for FFBE, which led to a summer collab with SO; and from there, she grabbed the reins.

Don't get me wrong. I still punch in when I can over here, but we've got a lot of work to do on the English Wiki of Mana now that Trials 3D is loose. Come over there if you would like, and chip in where you think it's needed. And by the way, thanks for listening. Take good care of yourself. Swordzmanp236 (talk) 21:54, April 28, 2020 (UTC)

Nice to talk to you again too, Swordzman.
Yes, my native language is Spanish and I appreciate the offer but I'm taking my time off wiki work right now and I'm currently focused on working on several projects at the moment for my personal life, and the scarce free time I have, I use it to advance through the MSQ and grind in Final Fantasy XIV (currently finishing Heavensward) so I don't expect to appear here except for those moments in which Opera Omnia adds a new alternate costume to its armoire.
I'd love to help, but I finally have some me-time and I'm going to use it wisely. Sorry. -- Eco (talk) 22:10, May 1, 2020 (UTC)
Think nothing of it, chief. Just know that both of those spaces are open if you want to drop by. I myself have been in containment since late March thanks to "The Virus". Nothing but time on my hands where I'd usually get out in the world and volunteer. Stay well, and I'll see you around. Swordzmanp236 (talk) 22:56, May 1, 2020 (UTC)

DFFOO late insert[edit source]

Hello. Do you happen to have the data dump on Guy? He was released in global last night, and I just created the two articles for him. If there's anything you can add, you're welcome to it. Swordzmanp236 (talk) 18:49, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, I have it. I'll start working on his pages during this weekend since I had everything ready to whenever his data would be added to the game. I'll also update the pages for Ramza, Caius and Balthier in the process. -- Eco (talk) 19:21, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

Well, that was fast. Not even two days later, here comes Ultimecia and her time-freezing Burst Finish! Splashy stuff, but not much in the damage department. Swordzmanp236 (talk) 09:21, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Heads up![edit source]

I've discussed with some of the staff over on Discord how we're going to handle Cid from XIII when he arrives. In almost all non-canon appearances, he goes by his surname to avoid conflict with other Cids. Any pages we do might have to reflect that. Thanks. Swordzmanp236 (talk) 19:33, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up! I already planned on doing it since in JP OO's event and on his very own equipment he is treated as "Raines" instead of "Cid". Once I saw that I changed all the passive links to make sure it contained "Raines" on them. -- Eco (talk) 20:17, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Dissidia costumes[edit source]

May I ask where you found all those images for Dissidia NT's alternate outfits? DrakeyC (talk) 21:21, 9 April 2021 (UTC)

Sure! They were all the official renders that Square shared in the update notices for Dissidia Arcade in the japanese Square Enix Bridge page. Every weapon and costume images come from there, the major issue is that whoever updated the Bridge... didn't do it with image consistency, that's why some images have decent quality and others... not so much. -- Eco (talk) 13:39, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. Do you recall off-hand if they posted the costumes we already have images for, like the WoL's base outfit? Mostly I'm interested in them because having all the characters in their default/neutral pose for the page seems better to me than some having special poses. DrakeyC (talk) 16:27, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
Nevermind, I found one of the pages that hosts the costumes and see they only displayed the recolors. Ah well. Thank you for answering. :) DrakeyC (talk) 17:26, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Serah's spring surprise[edit source]

Social was certainly buzzing when Serah's LD dropped earlier in the week for Global. And from what I had seen, looks like she got an unexpected bump. Here's hoping you have the goods. Long story short, she becomes a fairly decent debuffer. Swordzmanp236 (talk) 18:57, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

My luck ever since Eald'narche has been on the down side, I haven't obtained any new star weapon ever since and resources are quite low too, so I'm considering hibernating for a while until Divine Alexander. -- Eco (talk) 18:59, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Ah, yes, that accursed El Nacho! I've only got a tiny bit of Divine Ramuh left for resources before he ends tonight. Then we get to blow stuff up real good—with a bow and arrows! Swordzmanp236 (talk) 19:09, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
