You're right there. I'll fix that up in a second. Thanks.

It's not my video, I just found it on youtube and thought it would make a funny addition to my page, so by all means. Unless you want to ask the person who made it first. I'll get you the link.

I don't give my email out, I'm a bit of a spamaphobe and the ISP my dad's registered to keeps getting taken over so I don't know what my adress is anymore. Just tell me here.

I was planning to at least fake my character's death, and it does sound like an interesting twist. Go on.

First of all, if I hadn't played FF12, I wouldn't be semi-working on a walkthrough for it.

Second, so at one part, SCM tries to enchant Chaos's swords, and 8 tries to stop him?

Third, make sure it's after Yuan finally decides to kill her character off, so she can't use a Life spell.

Contrivance of the plot is BS and only happens during cutscenes. And Ultima could work too for destroying bodies.

Referring to your comments on 'before a consensus could reached,' there is already a guideline of 50px. The templates in question were not in compliance with this guideline and were edited/created without discussion. For the record, I was maintaining the status quo.

School Certificate? Edit

Aali's driverEdit

Aali's driver is a rendering engine that allows for VIIPC1998 to work, work well, and allow lots of mods.

SE "bought" this from Aali and used it to make VIIPC2012. I'd go as far to say that they made VIIPC2012 because they discovered this and saw they could profit.

Aali's driver fixed some glitches, and therefore those glitches were fixed in VIIPC2012. There's some stuff mentioned on here. JBed (talk) 00:07, February 11, 2013 (UTC)

OK. Still, I'm not really sure if saying "this bug is fixed specifically because of this driver" is useful/noteworthy, especially if we already note the changes in detail elsewhere. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 00:12, February 11, 2013 (UTC)


Well, sorry 'bout that. I just remember that was a little edit war some time ago on Ultros's page when someone was repeatedly adding Tros as an Ultros appearance and it was agreed that Tros is not a reference to Ultros.

Hometown Edit

Okay. Never mind, I just thought they were using it in the context of "birthplace". Never mind.

Yeah, original block was three months. I admit that tacking another month on before he goes to tons of swearing/personal insults again might be a bit harsh, but frankly I'm sick of his shit. :| -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 22:17, November 3, 2013 (UTC)
Is there any way to stop him from being able to post stuff entirely? It's nothing short of bullying. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 22:21, November 3, 2013 (UTC)
If several different reports are sent to VSTF in a short amount of time, they can temp block user profile access, like they did during the last block after all the Qubecois swearing and name calling. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 22:24, November 3, 2013 (UTC)

This would be much quicker if Wikia would let us do emergency shutdowns of all proxy IPs. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 04:54, December 26, 2013 (UTC)

IIRC (from what Cat told me 5 minutes ago :P), Wikipedia has a bot that does nothing but block proxies. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 04:59, December 26, 2013 (UTC)

Final Fantasy XIII Edit

Hello, I noticed you reverted my edit in FFXIII. I found there is location information about the English version. Any Japanese words can be written as romanization in English, like "新生エオルゼア" can be written as "Shinsei Eoruzea" simply, and do not need to translate "新生" into "reborn". But in Chinese, there aren't any alphabet-liked system, so we have to translate "新生" in to "reborn" rather than a transliteration "Shinsei".

The same title would be translated into different name in Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Like Chrono Trigger was translated as "The Round of the Space" in Mainland, while Taiwanese name is "The Key of the Space", and a "Space Shuttle" in Hong Kong.

The translation problem is obviously important for a game, so I think it's necessary to introduce that. Or this the English language wiki site, so do not accept the Chinese translation info? Thanks.-- 10:16, December 31, 2013 (UTC)

Just leaving myself a note to look over this tomorrow, It's 12:05AM on New Year's Day and I'm too tired to handle this now. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 13:05, December 31, 2013 (UTC)
SCM reverted because he couldn't make sense of the grammar used, I tried to fix it, but might've screwed something up. C A T U S E 22:03, December 31, 2013 (UTC)
Well, if that's what he meant, I think that works. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 23:24, December 31, 2013 (UTC)

Hello, just wondering about something which I stumbled across. Should images (take this for example) have full stops after a caption if it is just one word/not a full sentence? I've tried looking around on the policy pages and Manual of Style but I can't seem to find anything on it. Thanks in advance. RainbowShifter 10:36, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

Pretty sure the rule of thumb is no full stop if it's a sentence fragment/one word. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 10:50, January 1, 2014 (UTC)
Alright, thanks again. RainbowShifter 10:55, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

Re: LP... Again Edit

Hello SCM,

Well, I'm hoping to get two LPs done per month. The fact that the FFA LP hasn't been updated for a long time does worry me though. I'm not sure whether to wait until that's done or just start the FFX LP anyway. I was hoping I could get the first episode up from next week, but that's looking increasingly unlikely...

I'm going to be on the IRC tonight so hopefully we can discuss what's going to happen next and also to arrange a date for the next recording. Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 12:30, January 2, 2014 (UTC)

The Spoony Hater Edit

Looks like he's back again, with an Antwiler hater edit to Troll (Final Fantasy XI) by Special:Contributions/ that Leon reverted. Seems he's been forced to vandalise elsewhere since Antwiler's page has been protected. He's made no further edits but given the last guy's penchant for using a bunch of proxies, it could well be the same person with absolutely no life. The admins at the IRC are all quiet and haven't responded to me asking for a block, but I know you'll see this soon enough. We should keep a good eye on him. Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle 21:00, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

So... Edit

Heard you finally found the Spoony/XIII vandal. Good on ya.

Questions, though: How can you tell which IP isn't being used by an open proxy? And what stops them striking again? Though I think I may have an answer to that second part, I want to be 100% sure; I admin a couple of wikis, and I've never once had to deal with vandalism that persistent, so I wouldn't know for sure. Lord Grammaticus (talk) 06:19, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

It's not 100% accurate, but this place will tip you off if it appears to be an open proxy. Also, you know, if you ban them and they come back 5 minutes later, that tends to be a dead give-away.
There's no way to completely stop them from coming back here. Wikipedia has that bot that actively blocks known open proxies and there are ways to just completely turn off anon contributions, but we don't have access to those things. If things get really bad, I think you can ask Wikia to temporarily turn off anon edits but that little spree was nowhere near as bad as it would have to be for Wikia to do that. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 06:36, January 14, 2014 (UTC)
That and a lack of rampaging revenge means either 1) they gave up upon being found out or 2) they haven't realized it yet. If they decide to resurface, though, I'm sure we'll be more than ready. :B Lord Grammaticus (talk) 08:49, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Ixbran Edit

Can you fix the page? All I did was hit undo on a vandal edit, change the summary, and it STILL blew up a bunch of tags. I hate using the Nook's desktop mode...

The edit was by Gayhza Killer or whoever (they keep uploading some tumblr image and leaving a weird comment), and iirc they were banned for it previously. Lord Grammaticus (talk) 06:43, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

Final Fantasy XIII troll attacks Edit

Hello. I am one of the head administrators of the Final Fantasy Answers wiki, and my wiki has been experiencing attacks from a troll who is violently harassing any member that isn't a clear fan of Lightning or the game Final Fantasy XIII. It seems that you are, or have recently experienced the same threat.

My incident started shortly after the arrival of a very rude account named "Lilyheartslightning", who proceeded to display inexcusable behavior towards my members. This account was banned immediately after I learned of it, but since then, FFA gets attacked on occasion by anonymous IPs, all expressing the same intolerance for anyone with an obvious dislike of FFXIII. (Although I use the term "dislike" loosely as it seems even people who liked the game, but for instance, don't like Lightning, are being assaulted.) It then came to my attention through a mutual acquaintance, Catuse, that your vandal problem was traced back to this same account on your own wiki. So it seems that we share a common enemy.

I take the protection of my members very seriously, and this outrageous behavior has left me stressed. I don't know if there is much you can offer, but I am looking for advice. Since we've experienced incidents with the same person, I figured I would come to the ones who have shared my grief and combatted this unforgivable behavior to see if there is anything helpful I can learn from your staff or yourself.

If there is anything you can offer to assist me, I would be most grateful. Thank you for your time. (Lockexceles34. Because apparently my signature won't work here for some reason and I am completely source mode illiterate so I don't know how to make a link the right way.)

God, talk about no life... Have you blocked the IPs they use as they pop up? I'm sure you have, but I just need to confirm. FFVAExdeathmenu Lord G. matters. Talk to me. FFVAExdeathmenu 02:45, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

Yes I have. And on this last one, I actually tracked the IP using a website. The IP apparently originated from Ottawa, Canada, the same town LilyheartsLightning claims to be from, so I now have irrefutable evidence it's been the same person. [[File:LockeSig.jpg|120px|link=User:Lockexceles34]] 02:50, February 27, 2014 (UTC) <-- You know what, whenever you see this, just realize it's me until I figure out why my sig doesn't work here. - Lockexceles 34.

For starters, thank you. It was your first incident with Lilyhearts that allowed us to catch her. When Cat pointed out that you guys were having problems there too I took a look, noticed the Lilyhearts block, we performed an IP check and that proved that she was behind all this.
There's no real way to combat the proxy abuse, we don't have tools to automatically block proxies, as much as I would love it, so we're stuck playing whack-a-mole there. However, their real address range is pretty easy to find out, and we've put a block on it, which will at least slow her down a bit,as she seems to forget, quite often, that she's not on a proxy. If you want to try it, block Spelt exactly like that, the software will interpret it as "block all addresses between and". Also, don't make any block on it permanent, as this will affect other people from Ottawa who use the same ISP.
And the reason your sig is not working here is because it's dependant on an image you uploaded to Final Fantasy Answers. When it's here it doesn't work because there's no LockeSig.jpg on this wiki. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 03:13, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, I'll go try that out. [[File:LockeSig.jpg|120px|link=User:Lockexceles34]] 03:21, February 27, 2014 (UTC)

Can you answer me... Edit

Why does the "Final Fantasy" wiki have Bravely Default information? With all respect, it's not a Final Fantasy game, and I have read the tiers about games considered to be here in the wiki, but Bravely Default has almost nothing (it's not based in a world of the franchise, it's not developed by any Square Enix member/team, it's not related even by story, and now it can be considered as a new franchise since it already has an upcoming sequel)... so why is it here?

By the way, like two years ago you said something about people "reading" a lot about Ito's pattern. I tell you that, I don't read, I played them. Nevermind, can we solve that again? I think it's unfair that most people welcome it here just because they like the game or something, when clearly has nothing to do with the franchise overall. GestahlianChocobot (talk) 01:52, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

These are not the reasons people gave for why they think we should cover Bravely Default. The reasons given can be found here. We decided to cover it based on a vote where a majority decided that we should cover it.
Asking any individual person won't get you any response besides a link to the place that it was decided. Policy can change at any time, but this a topic that I think most people are tired of. It may come up again when we inevitably discuss placing Bravely Second in our scope. JBed (talk) 02:10, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

Fair enough then, but again, in those terms, we could even combine the Kingdom Hearts wiki with this one (since it's far more related to the franchise than Bravely Default), or any kind of information about Chrono Trigger, since again, it's more related. Anyway, I see why people is tired of it, and it doesn't surprise me but I still believe it's kind of unfair that it was decided by a few editors and not in a bigger context. The fact it has magic, blue mages, red mages and it's turn-based doesn't make it a Final Fantasy game. In that context, even the upcoming Child of Light (which is referred as a "French Japanese Role Playing Game") applies to be in this wiki. And you mention this is gonna blow up again when the sequel(s) comes out, so why to wait until then? It's my opinion though. GestahlianChocobot (talk) 03:12, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

I will repeat what JBed just said, we are tired of talking about this. It is a game made by SE that quite clearly takes heavy influence from classic FF, which enough people believes qualifies it as scope tier 1. End of discussion, do not use my talk page as a stepping off point to start this up again, please. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 04:37, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

All right almighty Archlord, I won't touch a basic, obvious point like that one again, since "enough" people believes that. GestahlianChocobot (talk) 03:35, March 21, 2014 (UTC)

E-Sumi-Yan's page Edit

To quote your summary when you edited the page "OK, somebody's going to have to help the non-XIV-playing admin here; why does there appear to be a gimmick account repeatedly changing all the gender pronouns on this page? Looks like your typical bishie to me."

I have to agree with you- He is definatly a bishie (If I spelt that correctly). The FFXIV wiki also call him a male character, and the naming conventions of the Padaj race according to this wiki say that he is male.

However, this isn't the first time that account has said that the character is female- Your editing is the third time the page has had to be corrected. I thought that account had given up, but I presume incorrectly. ;( I was keeping an eye out on the character's page also- but Esumiyanisagirl (which is definatly a gimmick account) got past my defences :( My presumption is that the account thinks that E-Sumi is a girl and wants to 'correct' the page- even if we try and prove it incorrect.

That was my attempt to answer your question. I don't play XIV either (I would like to, but subscription is deterring me) but I just looked at several other websites to find out gender.

Thank you,

TMG- Why? (talk) 10:51, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I asked the XIV players on IRC immediately afterwards and they confirmed he's a guy. If it happens again, we'll break out the admin tools.
And I wouldn't worry about not noticing it happen in the 4 minute window before I got to it. :P -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 12:47, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Eck. xDEdit

That's what I get for copy/pasting the note instead of typing it out each time... thanks for fixing. ^^ HayanNinja (talk) 03:31, May 8, 2014 (UTC)

Didn't have a chance to on IRC Edit

Because you had to go, but anyways, thanks a ton for the help with the images, also I fixed Sword Master now ^.^--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 14:12, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Hi SCM, sorry for adding page to wrong place. Was just trying to recreate the same page as Diablocon but couldn't figure it out. I see you got me there. Can you tell me the difference between what I clicked and what I was supposed to click?

Ah, you actually answered my question as I was writing it to you, sorry about that, but thanks :D I get it.


"Nope, higher quality wins out"

Both revisions had the exact same quality. One extracted from the data, and the same one from the data but doubling up all the pixels (so each 1x1 pixel is equivalent to 2x2). JBed (talk) 00:21, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

So I should have said resolution, who cares? I don't see the point in nitpicking over one word. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 07:13, August 21, 2014 (UTC)
I wasn't nitpicking a word. I thought you genuinely thought the quality was different.
Now I know you're talking about resolution, your reason for reversion confuses me even more. I can double-up any image, then somehow it would be more preferable to the wiki? Us preferring a higher resolution just isn't true. If quality comes with resolution then sure, but that is not the case here. JBed (talk) 07:21, August 21, 2014 (UTC)
No, not all cases. It'd look stupid for things that aren't sprite based.
It can be hard to see small sprites on large screens (or high resolution on small screens) and wikia has some times in the past screwed up resizing algorithms and made things look blurry as hell when resized. Even when they're working as intended on the main section of the site, you can see blurriness in the file histories of the images Techno and I reverted today (and no, he didn't do it on my orders and I have no idea if he had the same reasons as me, I came by a few hours later and noticed that he missed a few). Having the sprites be 2x somewhat addresses these issues and has a very minimal impact on the size of pages we're putting them on.
It's not essential, so I'm not saying we should go out and double the dimensions of every sprite we have on the site. I'm just saying that if we have them, and they're effectively identical to the base sprite, I don't see the point in going on a revert spree on them. Which is why I reverted back. You're free to revert, I don't really give that much of a shit and am not getting into an edit war over the resolution of a bunch of sprites. Just please don't bug me further about it if you do so. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 09:26, August 21, 2014 (UTC)

It's nothing at all. The red portion of the HP bar is how much damage the last combo did, it automatically vanishes after a few seconds and does not impede healing in any way.

Re: Sastasha Edit

I went digging around in XIV's database type website, and I found images for treasure coffers. here is unshiny, here is moderately shiny and here is super shiny. Also I got an image for the boss icons, if you're curious. Also I figured we might need them at some point so I also scalped the soldiery and poetics icons. I wasn't feeling all too scrupulous. Anyways, just leaving these here for you and maybe me at some point later on in time, if you should happen to need them. Jimcloud 14:25, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Jim, I've been planning on making a project page we can store copies of all the map icons on so anyone can make a map (kinda odd you have to upload map icons from your computer but whatever). We've already got the tomestone images though - We've been using them here. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 22:06, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Tidus's Mother Edit

The revert is also pointless since there is no rule saying it needs to be exactly the way they were. --Cococrash11 (talk) 07:49, December 16, 2014 (UTC)

I prefer old discussions to be left alone unless there is something that needs to be added to it. A section header doesn't qualify. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 08:01, December 16, 2014 (UTC)

Apologies Edit

Hey SCM, sorry about that. He was banned for trolling on another wikia, and apparently wanted to argue so much he tracked down my old account here. Thanks for the response on my talk page, and sorry for the trouble. Bond_em7 (Owl Me) 01:04, February 11, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the correction on Visage. I also noticed that I have the option to undo your edit. I've never seen that before Did you make me a mod? IronGasoline (talk) 06:56, March 22, 2015 (UTC)

I cannot give staff rights to people, the undo button is standard for all users. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 08:26, March 22, 2015 (UTC)

Deleted Character section on List of Final Fantasy XV Characters removed Edit

May I asked why you removed it? The template section of Final Fantasy XV also has a Deleted Character on it, so that should be include as well. ——Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~.

As far as I'm concerned, the List of Characters pages should only be listing characters that are actually in the game. I'm not actually sure why Stella is still listed on the navbox, when Versus and XV are now being treated on the site as separate games.
Also "Deleted Characters" is a stupid way to describe characters that were removed in development and I want to slap some sense into whoever came up with that. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 22:13, September 13, 2015 (UTC)
I'm so sorry that you feel that way, if you want Mr. Mage you could delete the "Deleted Characters" group from the offense. -- 08:09, September 14, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Uploads Edit


Hey, I am honestly not trying to stress you out. I'm not a bad guy and I really do apologize if I am bothering. I honestly like that you're a good admin and that you have been communicating with me nicely. There's not a lot of people like that out there. I have absolutely no friends ( only a dying grandpa that I've been taking care of ). Would it be alright for us to keep in contact. Email? Anyways, maybe we can put our heads together. Thank you and I'm sorry again.

Don't worry, I'm not stressed at all. And sorry, but I don't give out my contact details. Once that's been posted here, it's out there for everyone to see, and I'd rather not have some of the strange arguments I've seen here end up in my email inbox. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 23:04, January 24, 2016 (UTC)

Ah, I see now. Now I feel like a bigger idiot, haha. I guess it's from all that anime I watch, haha. Maybe that's why I created an anime review site in the first place. Maybe I was actually just trying to talk to people. *sigh*, but you know, I guess I do feel pretty good now that I was able to talk to someone about something. What do you expect from someone who has been living in solitude? I guess I was going to sooner or later end up talking about something.

scrublord, I need your help. I worked on a wiki page that someone created ( not sure how long ago ). It looks a little messy, but maybe you can help me work on it. It looks like someone created the page without doing any work on it and since I own the anime, I thought I'd contribute. Well, I'll leave the details to whoever wants to fix it up. I just want to write down all the dates and stuff. But, it looks trashed. I'd like to make it at least look neater. Do you have power to edit all wiki, or are you an admin for games section? If so, I could use your strength, oh mighty scrublord! The page is called Onichichi, but should have been written, "oni chichi". It's a hentai series. -Komishiro-

Walkthrough DeletionEdit

Hi, thanks for the message! Actually, I didn't know my unfinished walkthrough was on the walkthrough space. Actually, it seems Shockstorm ended up putting my pages on that space before they could be shown as a full guide, as I see when I look at the article's edit history. Can you please move the page back to my userspace? I don't know how to do it, thanks in advance. JC Holy Knight (talk) 23:50, January 30, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for your help :). JC Holy Knight (talk) 00:37, February 1, 2016 (UTC)

An apology Edit

Hi SCM. About a year ago I was trolling and asking about your taste in carrots. As a result I was banned for a year. Now I'm unbanned and want to say I've matured. Thanks for reading 00:25, March 19, 2016 (UTC)

News roll Edit

Okay, I get that you need sources. But what you areffectively telling visitorss is that if it’s not a mainline title, it doesn’t matter. If anything, our Twitter feed doesn’t properly track all of the social games, which are huge in their own right. That we are covering Final Fantasy XIV is great, but these spinoffs deserve more airtime than they actually get.

That said, heavy bias was, I think, one of the reasons the print news project got canned. We also can't possibly cover every character (re)release that happens, even if some are going to debut. DFFOO, at least, publishes a monthly preview at the end of the preceding month. We could include that in our feed as well. And if they spew a torrent of loot, our followers deserve to know.

The second and final loot drop from June will arrive Sunday PM/Monday AM, just in case you’re curious. Swordzmanp236 (talk) 18:55, July 5, 2019 (UTC)
