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)

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)
