This doesn't seem to work when I put it on an episode page unfortunately. GracieLizzie 04:19, 15 May 2006 (MST)

I'm new at this, I'm afraid, but I'll have a look at it. I got the navigation template to work okay, although it could do with being a bit less ugly.
Okay, it's more or less working. Can't quite figure out why the colour isn't working, there's a few formatting issues, and I think we should add an Art Director category, but it's basically functional now. Think we should keep the navigation template as well? Dooky 05:05, 15 May 2006 (MST)
I like having the navigation at the bottom of the page and the Episoded Data at the top so I say lets have both :) GracieLizzie 07:19, 15 May 2006 (MST)

Is there a template available for PGSM episodes, which don't have need seasons or dub information? Kerochan no Miko 12:43, 13 July 2006 (MST)

Yup, Dooky made one. It's at Template:PGSM Episode. ^_^ GracieLizzie 13:10, 13 July 2006 (MST)
I figured there was one out there somewhere...thanks. ^_^ Kerochan no Miko 14:38, 13 July 2006 (MST)

For the sake of consistency, how should we format dates in the "air date" box? I'm partial to Day Month Year (like 28 July 2006) myself. Kerochan no Miko 21:54, 28 July 2006 (MST)

--MarioKnight 01:52, 4 August 2006 (MST): Since the majority of boxes I've seen have been a varation of Day Month Year (28th of July, 2006), I've been using that when I've added and edited dates. I assumed that was already decided as the standard. o.o;; --MarioKnight 00:05, 29 July 2006 (MST)

IMHO it just doesn't look...well, nice. But I'm opinionated. I would like some kind of standard, though, 'cause that's not what I've been using. ^_^; Kerochan no Miko 00:15, 29 July 2006 (MST)
I agree, it doesn't look all that nice to me either. The only reason I used it was because I thought it was the standard already set..... until seeing this page. ^^;; I like how you're editting them to be, so I'll put my vote in for that. (Month Day, Year) --MarioKnight 00:26, 29 July 2006 (MST)
Format it in any way you'd like.--WikiSysop 00:42, 29 July 2006 (MST)
Personally I much prefer "th of" over lack of it myself. I think this has occured because dooky was doing most of these and the "th of" method is more familar to us Brits. However, as most users of this wiki will probably be familiar with the American system I don't have too much of a beef with it being changed, even though it is not the system I prefer. GracieLizzie 02:39, 29 July 2006 (MST)
There's also the issue of whether it's worth going back and changing every single one.--WikiSysop 03:08, 29 July 2006 (MST)
So long as each set of boxes is internally consistent, I don't think it matters. I used the "th of" system, as Gracie says, because it's what I've always used. But the alternative is equally clear, so I'v no problem with people using it in boxes, as long as it's used in all boxes of that type. dooky 03:22, 29 July 2006 (MST)

Got a new little tidbit to throw in the air. I added all the USA air dates to any episode that didn't have them sometime last week, and tonight added all the original USA air dates for the DiC episodes on the anniversary listings (CWi episodes will be added onto them tomorrow night (need sleep X_X) unless someone beats me to it or I don't survive work ^^;; ). I also added the air dates of the movies in the USA. When I went back in the SMU news archive to dig those dates out, I discovered the Canadian air date for the movies as well, and added that to the listing. The I remembered that Canada and USA had different air dates of the same dub episodes and looked at Ken Arromdee's FAQ to confirm my thought. Since both countries aired the same excat episode on different days, should we add a field to stare the Canadian premiere date on the episode box? I think we should, since (even though I will still forever make endless jokes aimed at the country north of me) these dates are important for each country, and we shouldn't in a sense force Canada into thinking that the US dates are forever set in stone the dates the episodes premiered on this side of the ocean, especially since the DiC episodes and movies aired in Canada before the US! Comments? Thoughts? --MarioKnight 01:52, 4 August 2006 (MST)

Rosen also brought up in the community portal the point about the airdates in European countries. It's so much work to add all this stuff, though. I don't want to commit either way unless people are willing to dedicate their time to filling all the boxes.--WikiSysop 02:02, 4 August 2006 (MST)
Take one language at a time; it probably wouldn't even be possible to find lists of air dates for many other dubs, so I wouldn't bother with that for now. --Rosen 02:21, 4 August 2006 (MST)
Wow, I was just finishing a long drawn-out post of focusing on NA before moving to the rest of the world, checked for any posts made as I was typing, and saw that you made the point I was going to make summed down to two lines. ^^;; Basically what I was going to say, was that I want to fccus on getting Japan (SM's home) and North America (majority of WikiMoon fanbase home) stuff a lot closer to completion before moving to other regions, in which time we can figure out excatly how to implement. Since Canada and US share the excat same dub, only different dates, I figure this shouldn't be too bad. Other dubs, I vote we wait a while on. --MarioKnight 02:30, 4 August 2006 (MST)
Yeah I'm not sure the English-language episode boxes are the right place for those countries anyway. Otherwise they'd end up being huge to boot. Is there a way to double-up on the same box to add Canada?--WikiSysop 02:41, 4 August 2006 (MST)
You could have Date 1 (Canada) and Date 2 (US), separated by a break tag. If we were being absolutely even-handed about this, then if an episode had aired in Canada first, we'd give that date in preference to the US one. As regards other dubs... I'd rather not put them in the template too because there's so many of them. This being an English-language resource with (one would assume) a mainly English-speaking audience, the NA dub is naturally going to take precedence. That said, I'd love as much information on other versions as possible. As a matter of fact, I was going to start an article to this effect yesterday, only to discover I'd lost the Nakayoshi Guide with the list of character names in various dubs (it listed a lot of the lesser-known Asian dubs). dooky 03:59, 4 August 2006 (MST)

^ Dooky, despite the editing clash, I notice we've got the identical exact keywords "English speaking" (mine don't have the hyphen tho) & "take precedence". lol So I don't need to retype my stuff! However, my original msg did have the words "UK" & "Aussie" tho. What do you think? 210 04:14, 4 August 2006 (MST)

Despite being British myself, I've never really viewed the UK airdates as especially important... particularly since most of the series was only shown on a cable network accessible to relatively few people. The American/Canadian airdates are of much greater historical importance.
Also, how much info do we have on various dubs? ANN has some cast lists, but do we have episode titles for any of them? dooky 04:31, 4 August 2006 (MST)
I see. And I'll leave your questions for the English dub experts (I've never watched any English dubs ^^;). 210 04:54, 4 August 2006 (MST)

^ I was thinking of having a row in the table for the US date (what we have now), as well as a new row for the Candian date, though your idea of having a break tag sounds good too. However we do it is fine with me, I probably won't get around to adding them in until after the weened anyways. --MarioKnight 10:51, 4 August 2006 (MST)

Hmmm... "Romanji" is so romantic... 210 17:26, 19 August 2006 (MST)
