Starter page. Will add more CDs as time passes.--WikiSysop 01:31, 29 May 2006 (MST)

Is it possible to add a second table which would list the release date and catalogue number of each CD on this page?--WikiSysop 13:24, 24 July 2006 (MST)

I don't see why it wouldn't be possible. What I'm guessing you want is making the lists under there now tables instead of a list? With each row having rhe name of the CD, date, and catalogue number? I don't see how this won't be possible. I can play with this if you'd like. --MarioKnight 15:49, 24 July 2006 (MST)
Seconded. And Sailorjupiter244's site would be an invaluable source of info for such tables. 210 17:04, 24 July 2006 (MST)

Dan, see what you can do. Something along the lines of what's up at the Compleat Sailor Moon CD List would be good.--WikiSysop 17:08, 24 July 2006 (MST)

Just browsed the site. It's a very good resource. But haven't found the PGSM ones yet. So I'm still recommending SJ244's site for that. 210 17:25, 24 July 2006 (MST)
I played a bit and I can do HTML tables here which can make it look how you want to with all that info. One question first. Using tables will kill the auto-number system in place, so I was wondering if the numbers there mattered that much to put them in myself, or to just scrap them altogether. And thanx for the link, I was wondering where the site's been hading nowadays. It seems to change places anytime I go a few months without visiting it. @_@;; --MarioKnight 19:52, 24 July 2006 (MST)
Don't worry about the numbers. Generally I use wiki-tables here, but if you can get HTML to work too, go ahead ^_^ dooky 19:58, 24 July 2006 (MST)
The HTML seems to work fine and has no problem with the wiki-code, so I'll start playing around with them and get it all going. I wish there were a way for me to use the wiki-tables, but it looks like you can only use tables by making templates, which wouldn't really help us here.--MarioKnight 22:45, 24 July 2006 (MST)
You can use tables without templates (I use small ones for inserting images into articles). There's an example of a big one I made in this article in the Suburban Senshi wiki. dooky 22:51, 24 July 2006 (MST)
Ah, very nice and easy to do. That's what I get for not looking too much into wiki-code. ^^;;; Anyways I'll get started on this page tomorrow before work, I've got to get some sleep now. --MarioKnight 00:55, 25 July 2006 (MST)

SM won JASRAC award, but I'm not sure was it two or just one. Does anyone knows? I think it was 2 awards, but I'm not sure.....--StarFighter 18:56, 24 July 2006 (MST)

So how do we use those tables?--WikiSysop 00:46, 7 September 2006 (MST)

Oops, somewhere along the way, I guess I forgot about redoing the page with the tables. Since this was back in July, I can't remember what had me distracted to forgot about them. I just made myself a note to do this (and more SMU comparisons) on my next day off, Wednesday. Sorry about that, I have no idea what happened. ^^;;;;; --MarioKnight 00:30, 12 September 2006 (MST)
Okees, have each section formatted to wiki-tables now with the catalogue numbers and release dates using Beej's site and the CD info from here. I may play around with the look of this to have it more crisp and such, but hopefully that will work for now. --MarioKnight 01:02, 15 September 2006 (MST)
Thx for your hard work. It looks neat. 210 04:43, 15 September 2006 (MST)

PGSM CD Resources

This site contains detailed info of PGSM CDs, among others:


210 23:49, 26 July 2006 (MST)

PGSM Singles Release Dates

I'm sure some of them are wrong since the singles weren't released on the same date as it's currently shown, e.g. Ami's & another one were released later, as I recall it. 210 04:43, 15 September 2006 (MST)

PGSM Singles' Serial #

Why only Usagi's begins w/ "CODC"? Highly suspect. 210 05:10, 15 September 2006 (MST)

Koro-chan Packs 1 & 3 got the same #. 210 05:19, 15 September 2006 (MST)

Page Formatting

Gokurosama deshita to MarioKnight for his hard work in setting up the page tables.

Let's discuss some of the formatting rules we'll probably want to set. I think the text, instead of being centered, should probably be set to the left of the column. We may also want to set a standard width for all the tables. Also, we should probably reference Beej's site since we got the info from there.

Opinions?--WikiSysop 04:54, 15 September 2006 (MST)

Left justification, std width & credit: all agreed. 210 05:07, 15 September 2006 (MST)

It'd also be nice, at some point, to have thumbnails of the CD covers in one of the tables. Perhaps it'd be copying Beej's page too closely but I think he was spot on with his layout.--WikiSysop 04:55, 15 September 2006 (MST)

This would liven up the look. 210 05:06, 15 September 2006 (MST)

Can someone who has more knowledge of how Wiki tables work than me figure out why the CD titles aren't left-aligning?--WikiSysop 00:49, 19 September 2006 (MST)

I've looked up how to use tables and can see why. Before I go through and change them all, I was wondering if we wanted to keep the CD titles bolded like we have now or not. I want to do only one long run of editting if I can help it. I'll get all this done before I head into work, it won't take that long, but I do want to head to bed now. ^^;;;; --MarioKnight 01:38, 19 September 2006 (MST)
I think un-bolding them is better since their font size is already small, making them less clear to read. 210 03:29, 19 September 2006 (MST)
Thanks again for all your hard work Dan. For me, bold was a good idea and you can leave it like that.--WikiSysop 05:48, 19 September 2006 (MST)
If you finally choose to leave it bold, I suggest to leave the titles under the PGSM box set normal-font as they are now. 210 06:10, 19 September 2006 (MST)
I decided to leave them bold, but I kept the ones under the PGSM box unbolded as suggested, and it all seems to work out well imo. Also put Beej's site as a reference on the page. I'll work on adding thumbnails at some point since they seem to be in demand. --MarioKnight 12:00, 19 September 2006 (MST)
Looking great Dan.--WikiSysop 13:23, 19 September 2006 (MST)

^ Same here. 210 18:02, 19 September 2006 (MST)

I've done a pilot std column width formatting on the PGSM section. Of course, there're pros & cons. So opinions? --210 03:59, 3 October 2006 (MST)

If no one objects, I'll reformat the other tables as per the PGSM ones, otherwise I'll revert my last edit on the latter for format consistency. (I currently think that it's, in overall terms, still better to have std width, but I might change that if I did the other tables & encountered unexpected results.) --210 18:06, 3 October 2006 (MST)
They look good to me. I put my vote for std formatting on the tables. --MarioKnight 00:35, 4 October 2006 (MST)
Ok, I'll do it the next couple of days (busy lately). --210 05:23, 4 October 2006 (MST)
But I managed to finish it tonight. :P My biggest regret is the Myu section tho (see below). --210 08:04, 4 October 2006 (MST)

1st Unexpected Result (Myu Section)

Long CD titles which require line wrapping disrupt std column widths, tho std table width is unaffected. I can tackle this, but it'll sacrifice the page links. Hence I leave the column widths "variable". Anyone who knows how to solve it pls do it. --210 06:13, 4 October 2006 (MST)

But this problem doesn't occur in the Drama section, which also has line wrapping of CD titles. Random coincidence? Curious... --210 08:19, 4 October 2006 (MST)
Ok, I'd to fine tune the parameters to solve this problem. This Wiki bug is so stupid. --210 18:58, 4 October 2006 (MST)

2nd Unexpected Result (NA Section)

Long serial #s require larger-than-std column widths since the std ones would force them to wrap lines, making them confusing to the reader. Of course I can increase the std column width, but it'll lead to other problems in other tables. Since the "1st Unexpected Result" above has already led to "variable" column widths, I opt to increase the column width for them, & decrease that for the CD titles in order to maintain the std table width. --210 06:48, 4 October 2006 (MST)

Expected Result (Super Moonies Section)

For various obvious reasons, this section is the black sheep of the family. Nevertheless, std table width is still maintained. --210 07:47, 4 October 2006 (MST)

I'm now on a desktop. It confirms my suspicion: (1) the Myu table isn't standardized; (2) the Super Moonies table is also a bit wider than the std one; (3) the serial #s in the NA table can actually be acccomodated in a std column. Since I can't do prolonged work here, & the tables look fine on my usual tiny display, I can't do anything for the above 3 conditions. So anyone who's interested pls go ahead. --210 01:20, 11 October 2006 (MST)

Just to confirm the above comment is mine. --210 04:59, 11 October 2006 (MST)

I've standardized the parameters for the tables mentioned in (1) & (3) above. Don't know how they look now on a std PC (my device shows non-standardized columns for (1) & line wrapping of serial #s for (3), tho all tables have the same width). Even if they still look wrong, it's a good starting point for anyone working on them. --210 18:21, 11 October 2006 (MST)
Everything looks std on my PC except for Super Moonies. Do we really need that chart ranking column in that table though? --MarioKnight 00:18, 12 October 2006 (MST)

Musical CDs

I'd thought that we weren't including subtitles in the Myu titles? Kerochan no Miko 21:20, 25 September 2006 (MST)

Italian CD

I'm a bit short on info on this, but there was at least one Italian CD, called Cristalli, Petali e Misteri per Sailor Moon. I found a sleeve scan and track listing on this page, though I can't decipher the description. Track #1 (and perhaps #7; I haven't heard it) was most likely a song written for the CD, while tracks #2-5 are the Italian openings used up to the SuperS season. Anyone else seen more about this one? --Rosen 10:17, 4 October 2006 (MST)
