:I'm not 100% sure what you mean by separate rows for Ranks of: "Ninja, ANBU, Samurai, etc." I was thinking that ANBU should be merged with Ninja, as for doing a query on ranks, we could try to find a way to set ANBU to a NULL value when being searched. For Samurai, there are no rank "subcategories," So it would be kinda weird to have a box with a title, Samurai Rank: Samurai.

Jutsu Infobox

What needs to be done to the jutsu infobox for it to be ready for implementation? Also, is it gonna be manual edits or bot replacing info? Simant (talk) 06:02, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Well the first problem i notice is that under type there is only the ability to select one option, whereas i have seen jutsu with defensive and offensive. Simant (talk) 06:23, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
It looks like the problem with the range is that it is doing the array map first then the switch. So is the arraymap is just there untill the switch starts to work? so the problem is getting the variable into the switch statement? Simant (talk) 09:05, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
its working ok.. i just am still seeing the extra commas in front of it and not the text changing to "short to mid". is it my cache or something? Simant (talk) 09:21, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Another issue is that there appears to only be space for one parent jutsu, when some game jutsu's and harem technique have multiple parents, shadow clone and transformation. Simant (talk) 02:18, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

And when the infobox is being used in a artical, the "Shippūden" section code is written without the line over u, making all jutsus first appear in Shippūden. Jacce | Talk 16:44, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

You are probably right, all I meant was that when not choosing "Debuted in Shippuden", the box still said that it first appeared in Shippuden. Jacce | Talk 18:27, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

Something bugged up somewhere.. causing justu range after being inputted to be listed as uses kekkai genkai after using the formedit.Simant (talk) 21:29, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

Article of the month/week

Hi. I dunno if it is ok to compare with other Wikies, but I'll take my chances and do it. On Bleach wiki, on their main page they have an Article of the Month (which we could turn into article of the week or smth) for characters (but we could do it for jutsu, places etc as well). I dunno how the system works to create such a thing, but it would be nice to have it for newcomers who do not know what to search for first. - MadaraU (talk) 07:58, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

Now that you mentioned it, the random page feature does kind of render the article of the week feature useless. Thanks for the quick reply. - MadaraU (talk) 08:05, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

The Chap Is Out

Can we unlock the Fifth Mizukage article now?Saimaroimaru (talk) 07:27, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Re:

Thanks for the info :) I like the jutsu icons that are on the new infobox, but i don't like them actually being in the info box. looks kind of weird to have all text in the infobox (other than the pic) and then have the release type icon and have it increasing the height of that row. Just a suggestion. —This unsigned comment was made by Skyflicker (talkcontribs) on 13:01, 2 October 2009.

Missing image

I know that the character infobox is tagged synced across multiple wikia; but I was wondering anyways if we could add the same Maintenance: Missing image tags to it like we have for the jutsu and episode infobox; Also perhaps a maintenance for missing translations to help ShounenSuki‎ (and others?) out. Simant (talk) 18:28, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

O-Parts Hunter Wiki

Is there in discussion a wiki for 666 Satan (O-Parts Hunter) Manga? I am asking it because I know you are not resuming solely to Narutopedia and I've seen on your info page that you are currently reading it. - MadaraU (talk) 20:36, October 9, 2009 (UTC)

Yes it is referred to as 666 Satan in Japan because the story pretty much revolves around this dude:)) I would never read the english volumes because judging from the very name of the manga (in the english version), it is heavily censored. Then again... I cannot read the Raw manga because I am no jap speaker/reader. I was left with only one option: to read the scanlations... AND BOY WAS THAT HARD!!! (read further to see why) You asked me if I would be interested in editing it. Hell yeah I would be, but having only the scanlations at my disposal would not make it a professional work (SOME SCANLATIONS ARE SO BAD that I am still wondering if I caught the full spirit of the manga - which is awesome by the way). If we were to be more who would work on the project (some of which could read raws as well) then something good (like Narutopedia) would come out of it. Anyways, if we were to revive the 666 Satan (Yes I would prefer this name more:P) Wiki we would have to correspond through mails or yahoo messenger (the talk style on wiki is mendokusai :) ) BTW I have not understood the last part of your message: B. Ichi. (is it a crypted reference to Bleach :)) ? ). - MadaraU (talk) 06:58, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I'll see what I can do. - MadaraU (talk) 07:55, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I am waiting on you then. - MadaraU (talk) 08:57, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Good Job. I'll try to make an article for Jio once I get home from work. - MadaraU (talk) 15:43, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Spoiler Warning message

Just wondering since it seems out of place, did you want the spoiler warning to appear here on Special:SpecialPages? Simant (talk) 19:42, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

Spoiler warning though should appear on this specialpage. Special:CreatePage :\ Simant (talk) 05:18, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Re:Rollback

Hmm, I've seen you on a couple of other Wikis before, so I'll direct my questions to you. Is there a list of administrators and policies on this Wiki? Also, isn't rollback meant solely for the reverting of vandalism and not a tool to make quick edits? Thanks. Calebchiam Talk 07:00, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

Is there a process to select administrators? I noticed that Charitwo (a user that I know) is a sysop with 189 edits. Also, are there any behavioural policies, like a user treatment policy of sorts? I hope I'm not annoying you with all these questions ^^. Calebchiam Talk 07:21, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
Mm, that makes sense. Probably cuts down on a lot of the Wikidrama as well. Calebchiam Talk 10:09, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

Semantic MediaWikia and Semantic Forms

Hello Dantman,

I am Ten Tailed Fox (talk), a regular visitor to this wiki, as well as an administrator on both Naruto Fanon Wiki and Bleach Fan Fiction Wiki. I have just sent a request to Wikia to ask them to activate Semantic MediaWikia and Semantic Forms, so that we can set up a template, similar to how you here at Naruto Wiki did with your jutsu. The staff I spoke to at Wikia referred me to you. Can you possibly explain to me how to set up both Semantic MediaWikia and Semantic Forms?

Thank you for your time,

Ten Tailed Fox (talk) 21:49, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, I will contact you if I have any questions. Ten Tailed Fox (talk) 17:04, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Akatsuki memebers' rings

I noticed that in the jutsu infobox the elemental natures' icons were scaled enough to be put inside the infobox. I was wondering if such a thing could be done with the Akatsuki rings and be put for each member inside their character box (or how it is called). I am guessing that first of all the pictures of the rings (or just the kanji on a circle colored with the color of the respective ring) ought to be drawn. Then again it could be said that it is not that important seeing as only a handful of people wore such rings, most of the ones who wore them are dead while the rings are not worn by anyone anymore, but then again the rings are an important part of what Akatsuki is (otherwise Zetsu would not have been sent to recover them). Perhaps the rings will play a bigger role in the future. Waiting on your opinion on this, Dantman. - MadaraU (talk) 06:41, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Ok, tks for the answer. If only I'd had more time, I would draw the svg's myself :-< - MadaraU (talk) 09:02, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Jutsu media

I modified the Template:Infobox/Jutsu so that if there is a debut in anime/manga, it will list it as jutsu media in that field. Now since semantics seems to need to be updated manually for each page, I was hoping you could send a bot to do null edits to all the jutsu pages, so they would update. Simant (talk) 01:49, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

*shrug* I just didn't see any cases where that wouldn't be true; Unless someone knows it debuted in anime and forgot which episode. But I guess we can go through and manually tag them all... Simant (talk) 02:26, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Infobox

Our wikia has received the upgrades, but we still need a working infobox to go with it. I tried to replicate the one that is used here, however, for some reason it would not work. I need your assistance in creating a working, character and jutsu infobox that will work with the new upgrade. ~NOTASTAFF Ryun Uchiha (Ten Tailed Fox, Getsueikirite-taichou) (talk) 02:37, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Hahaha I know what you mean. Thank you for the link. ~NOTASTAFF Ryun Uchiha (Ten Tailed Fox, Getsueikirite-taichou) (talk) 15:04, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Volumes

Converting Volumes to be semantic compatible. see Template:Infobox/Naruto/Volume and Form:Volume, do changes as you see fit. Simant (talk) 02:15, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

I was thinking of creating a new [[property:Volume number]], but why not just change Property:Episode number -> Property:Release number, and have it work for both. Simant (talk) 15:56, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

K, then should I just create the new property:Volume number? or deal with it later. Simant (talk) 16:00, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

Ninja rank

"This is getting tiresome, Village Head was never stated to be a Ninja Rank" -It is a rank, that ninja from multiple villages have. Is it necessary for it to be on a chart to include when we have multiple examples of it? It makes sense to be there. ZeroSD (talk) 10:48, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

About the Giant Ram/Bull

I have modified everywhere in the Giant Ram's page to make it correct that it is a Bull, but I cannot correct the title of the page to make it Giant Bull. If you could... thanks. Also at species I've put cattle given that the bull is a male cattle. - MadaraU (talk) 08:55, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Soft Redirect

I was wondering what you thought about protecting soft redirects, since it breaks the semantic system pretty bad when messed up, at least so only registered users can edit them. Simant (talk) 22:49, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Also, it would be nice if Uzumaki Naruto! could be a redirect and have the semantic properties at the same time. since i'm linking the debut's to the episode/manga title in the character infobox. Simant (talk) 23:11, October 21, 2009 (UTC)

Primary jutsus

I think the section "primary jutsu" should be added to the characters' info box. I would suggest putting it maybe under the nature manipulation and above the list of known jutsus. I'm suggesting this because in the english manga (maybe also in the japanese) there is sometimes a page at the end with a naruto character on it. This page lists a few facts about the character. I have only read 2 pages like this and the only way I can find them is by buying mangas. I would rather read this info on the internet. So maybe everyone with a copy of any english naruto manga with a character fact sheet can contribute to this site.

Zatch Bell Wiki

As one of the main creator of wikis you can understand the importance of reliable information. So Im asking, with your help, I'm wondering if you can get Zatch Bell wiki back up to date.The current admin isnt doing much and so far im appalled at the effort put into the wiki. Being one of my more favored shounen I expected work to be picked up quickly on it.That has yet come to pass, so with your help im hoping we can get something done despite my lack of knowldge on how to use a wiki. —This unsigned comment was made by Kiddo789 (talkcontribs) on 13:01, October 24, 2009.

question about the caution symbol next to age

File:Capture098765.jpg

how do i get the caution symbol next to deceased? this is my talk page http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:KiumaruHamachi (sorry - - ~ ~ ~ ~ doesn't work)

by the new infobox: do u mean this... or another one. Because i like the current infoboxes. And I have been trying to get that model for the longest and when i typed in Template:Infobox ill copy and paste fill in the right parameters and it will look like that.

http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:KiumaruHamachi

that infobox is the new infobox on the new wikis created in late 2008 to current. I think I have an idea. Change my style to Wikipedia. I think that might be able to work. Sadly, my view on Narutopedia will be wikipedia... oh well. http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:KiumaruHamachi
I meant my wiki... that i'm doing. Narutopedia will always be in its current style the style i like. I'm thinking of using Narutopedia's infoxboxes. But its only a test. http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:KiumaruHamachi

Opinion

Currently Template:CharacterJutsu, works, but it is a bit messy, opinion, comments, cleaning ideas? Simant (talk) 17:56, November 12, 2009 (UTC)

Hello

Sorry about the messy animation article - I figured the black background would be a lot easier on the eyes, but I guess it turned out kind of ugly. I'm new to this so I'm not really familiar with much of the code. If you know of a better way to format it than the basic table, I wouldn't mind redoing the whole thing.

Insane111 (talk) 20:58, November 12, 2009 (UTC)

Do I have a policy-grounded reason to be annoyed?

If you look at the uploads Xandotablets has done (Special:Contributions/Xandotablets), he has uploaded several anime images over the original manga images instead of uploading them in new files. TheUlitmate3 and I aren't agreeing on the legallity of this (Conversation: User_talk:TheUltimate3#I_can.27t_agree_with_you_there, User_talk:Hakinu#Re:_I_can.27t_agree_with_you_there). Could you give your voice in the matter? Thanks, ~Hakinu (talk | contribs) 19:03, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Basically to chime my reasoning in, I see this case as a loophole in the Policy.
  • Teh Loophole: In the same vain where a Scanlation image is replaced with a RAW image, an manga image can be replaced by a Anime image, as long as that image is exactly the same as the manga image it was replacing.
For example: The now defunct picture of Madara Uchiha's Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan image, it was replaced with the direct anime version of the image. Using the above loophole, the image could be changed with no problem.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 19:09, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

There's no loophole, that's just wikilawyering. "same image" in the policy refers to the precise same image, there can be no difference in where it came from. The reason that the policy is in place is because MW's history does not keep page text organized with the relevant version of the image. Thus if you upload an image covered under a different fair use rationale it messes up the page history because it's hard to separate what rationale was used for what image. Thus the spirit of the policy is "Don't upload an image over any image unless the images are covered by the exact same rationale."; Thus you can't upload images of different people (voids the description), you can't upload an anime image over a manga image (voids the source), you can't use an image from a chapter/episode/page/scene which is different than the original's (also voids the source). The purpose, resolution, and "replaceable?" fields don't really matter though. So yes, any of Xandotablets re-uploads that upload a anime image over a manga image should be reverted. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Nov 19, 2009 @ 20:08 (UTC)

I have another question, for images from episodes, is the fair use rationale valid if the episode number is missing? Simant (talk) 20:46, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
How do you want them to be tagged if they don't have the episode number? is there a template already? Simant (talk) 23:11, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
Oh so I was Wikilaywering. Hm, I prefer to call it a Loophole >.> Alright then. Let's get er done.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 21:50, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Request

Several of the users of my Naruto Fanon Wiki would like to use infoboxes like you have for your jutsu and your characters. Is there anyway you would be willing to put it on my wiki, or at least teach me how? I know it's a pain, and I apologize in advance, but it would be a great help to our wiki. Thank you for your time. ~NOTASTAFF Ryun Uchiha (Ten Tailed Fox, Getsueikirite-taichou) (talk) 03:32, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

Oops

Hi, I was told by Simant to ask you about a Navbox for Akatsuki members, I use this wiki for information on akatsuki members alot and i knew it would make it easyer to go from page to page with a navbox. I made and placed a navbox on a few pages but they were deleted by Simant. Like i said, i'm new to this wiki so i dont know how things are done here. Is there some rule against navboxas? If there is I apologize for the mistake. Thanks--Zexion14 (talk) 20:30, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Character Infobox

Family Tree

How far along the family tree do you want the infobox to list characters relations? Simant (talk) 20:18, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

Well i made the generations for the family tree go from grandparent to grandchild. It still needs to remove duplicate entries, since it displays children from both parents. Also a few bugs still such as displaying a extra line when Hiashi/Hizashi; Also for some reason Neji adds an extra line to the bottom that is a broken link... I might add a function to check the ages between character for younger/older siblings, twins, and such. Also, this family tree, and jutsu need to be sorted, preferably while in string format separated by commas, not sure how to do that on mediawiki, hoping you could tell me how to do the sort. Simant (talk) 01:16, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
Nope can't do that since its set up so they contain multiple queries. Simant (talk) 01:35, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps install this Sort Extension? Simant (talk) 01:44, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
Well I suppose i could do it a horribly ugly way by using lots of OR statements in an ask statement. -.- Simant (talk) 02:04, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
Then again.. I'd probally have to seperate the manga only, anime only, from the normal jutsu list if i did it that way. Is that ok? Simant (talk) 02:06, October 27, 2009 (UTC)

RE: Advanced Templates

Um, well i was thinking since we were not going to have any of Species next to Summoning technique since the list would be automatically generated. We needed a space for affinity, and I figured why not use the space system as for media. But That edit was to separate the two, so that the word "only" would not appear when you typed something like Naruto Uzimaki~Toads It would Just show (Toads). Simant (talk) 20:10, October 17, 2009 (UTC)

On second thought I suppose it is kinda useless (right now) since we don't need the word "only" in there, but when we do the semantic properties it may be useful to differentiate the two. Simant (talk) 20:15, October 17, 2009 (UTC)
Yah, okay, got the part about the whitespace. But I'm not sure how to handle the switch without the ifeq statement. Simant (talk) 20:35, October 17, 2009 (UTC)
Ok I cleaned it up. Btw, was wondering how we were gonna handle semantic properties of characters that used jutsu in only one media, with other jutsu users in other media. Only way I could think of (without giving myself a headache) was making separate media properties for each user field such as [[Anime Users::]][[Manga Users::]]. and then doing combined searches with ask query. Simant (talk) 03:40, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
I was wondering if we could have the min/max chapters in a volume displayed like it was here but still using the inline query. I'm guessing you would have to do something with format=template, and stuff, but i'm not sure of the code to return min/max values from the property manga chapters (property not made yet). Simant (talk) 20:03, October 20, 2009 (UTC)
Pretty sure nothing skips in volumes, unlike in anime episodes, they should all be in order. (I would hope at least) ill take a quick look through them all and check, then if so, i'll start changing. Would you mind setting up the form, while im looking? Simant (talk) 21:30, October 20, 2009 (UTC)

Do you know of a way to pass a variable such as name through an ask query to the template:sandbox? Simant (talk) 21:25, October 22, 2009 (UTC)

Well if thats the case I may have to remove the user property all together to get the search to work, and have them all divided up into Properties such as, User Manga, User Anime, User Movie, User Game. Simant (talk) 01:07, October 23, 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I can easily move them back, inside the infobox. Is it ok to keep the icons for the hiden jutsu, and the kekkei genkai as well inside the infobox? Simant (talk) 16:51, October 24, 2009 (UTC)
Um, how do you feel about kekkei genkai that are also chakra nature, picture for both, or just one. Blaze Release: Kagutsuchi. Simant (talk) 17:32, October 24, 2009 (UTC)
Well i had an ask query before to eliminate the extra one in the titleicons, but removed it when transfering. Simant (talk) 17:35, October 24, 2009 (UTC)
I almost got the infobox jutsu search working for users. User:Simant/Sandbox 2, just gotta get rid of those line breaks, and do a sort, then do same thing that is done on jutsu pages with (anime only) etc. Though i'm not sure how to get rid of the line breaks, or if sort will work with them in there. Simant (talk) 18:07, October 24, 2009 (UTC)
I was wondering if you had any insight why there are 23 extra non-visible characters in front of the frist, and after the last lines in the code
{{#arraymap:{{#ask:[[Category:Jutsu]][[User::<!--{{PAGENAME}}-->{{{name|}}}]]|?Jutsu media|limit=250|link=none|format=template|template=Sandbox}}{{Sandbox|anime~{{#ask:[[Category:Jutsu]][[User Anime Only::<!--{{PAGENAME}}-->{{{name|}}}]]|limit=250|link=none|format=list}}|task=1}}{{Sandbox|manga~{{#ask:[[Category:Jutsu]][[User Manga Only::<!--{{PAGENAME}}-->{{{name|}}}]]|limit=250|link=none|format=list}}|task=1}}|,|!|<nowiki/>

from Template:Infobox/Naruto/Character, they only display as off (at the beginning) and on (at the end), and only if the code is put into a link.

Its kinda serious perturbing... Simant (talk) 18:21, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

I figured it out for some reason there was [[SMW::off]] at the front of the text, and [[SMW::on]] at the end... now that i know what the exact values are i think i can just trim them off. this is probably a bug that should be reported... Simant (talk) 18:53, October 25, 2009 (UTC)
Quick question why doesn't this:
{{#ask:[[Category:Jutsu]][[Name::Protection of the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms]][[Jutsu media::!Anime]]|format=list}}

Return no results. Simant (talk) 00:50, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

So.. any ideas? Clearly I am missing something obvious about the syntax of the above query statement. Also, I decided I am gonna either:
  • A. Do a sort using string functions and switch statement. OR
  • B. Give up on trying to sort. And.
1. Wait till someone makes a php sort that is acceptable. Simant (talk) 20:51, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
Well uh... first off family. Maybe I overcomplicated it, but I didn't see a simple way to do it with a single ask query. Data from family is set up to come back this way:
Hyuga Elder~Grandfather, Hiashi Hyuga~Father, Hanabi Hyuga~Sister, Hizashi Hyuga~Uncle, Neji Hyuga~Cousin

Data from jutsu comes back basically the same way, and since I separated single media specific jutsu users from the user parameter, It can't really be combined easily or possibly at all. Simant (talk) 21:11, October 27, 2009 (UTC) Simant (talk) 21:11, October 27, 2009 (UTC)

I think I will try to do a bubble sort with two arraymaps using the {{#sub:}} string function... It would look too ugly if there were sections for only one result. By the way is Extension:ArrayExtension installed? Simant (talk) 21:25, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
This looks like what needs to be done. Help:ArrayExtension - Alter an Array Simant (talk) 21:29, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure by what you mean I did something wrong with the way I got the results of a Characters Jutsu/family. Since I couldn't pass variables into the query:
  1. For the Jutsu with one user only in a media, I instead appended the variable to the front of the results. Which makes the two queries separate and unable to do a sort together using the query sort feature.
  2. For the families. Did you want me to make a separate property for each relation? Otherwise if only using the parent property, special cases like godfather would have to be handled without the ask query which also can't be sorted using a single query. It could probably be made into a single query if each page had properties for each relationship, but then making it tag (such as Minato Namikaze (Father)) the type of relationship would be difficult if at all possible.

Character Age

I have been wondering why we are listing character age throughout a specify part in the series rather then just their age at debut. I don't think we have any cases of characters who stop aging (chronologically at least; otherwise maybe madara... but doesn't matter). This is disrupting my ability to create Template:CharacterAge, properly. Simant (talk) 22:23, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

Family Tree - Both Parents Checking - Half-Siblings

I'm trying to do a query with the parents, so it checks children from both parents, so that siblings can be marked as "half-siblings." The problem is, with the duplicates in the family from both parents, I don't know how to remove them without using a counter variable, which I have no idea how to create/change in mediawiki syntax. Any ideas/help would be appreciated. Simant (talk) 21:49, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Figured out a way to remove duplicate info in an array using #arraysearch, and #arraydefine, but they are also both part of Extension:ArrayExtension which you didn't like..., but with that installed the infobox would be complete... Simant (talk) 02:14, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Two new categories in the character infobox

What do you think about two new categories named Master(or Sensei) and Apprentice for each character? The student-teacher relationship is one of the most important in this story therefore these two categories could be added under the family category or something in order to better illustrate these ties which in the Narutoverse are just as important as family ties ( if not more important :D ). And if a character had more than one teacher (like Naruto) we can add them all just as we can add all the students each character had (if the respective teacher had any). - MadaraU (talk) 19:02, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Permanent Resignation

Hello Dantman, it's been a while. What I'm about to write to you will be my last series of inquiries (and quite frankly, my last series of edits) as I've decided to resign from this wiki for good; I just couldn't see any future for me to continue working here. No offense, but I just couldn't stand seeing the numerous inconsistent Naruto facts found in the site (as a result of numerous faulty decisions made by the community). What's more, I've had my fair share of experiencing injustices done to me (i.e. having my contributed images deleted - despite them being in accordance to the wiki's rules), leading me to conclude that this wiki isn't just for me (despite Naruto being my favorite anime). So for the last time, I'm asking your help: How do I unsubscribe from this wiki (if possible)? This might be saddening for you, but I've completely made up my mind. I hope you could understand and help me out on this final plea.--Ethelion (talk) 04:31, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Nine Tailed abilities should not be listed as techniques

Hey Dantman I just wanted to tell you that I think the Nine tails techniques that are listed in naruto's jutsu list should not be there because they are not connsistent techniques and they take up to much space. I propose you move there information to anouther technique like {Nine-Tailed Transformations} as added information.

Pterry08 {talk} 6:46, December 22, 2009 {UTC}

I would like to point out Dant, I told Pterry they are pretty consintent to what is mentioned in the articles (Red Chakra Arms are red chakra arms, Sonic Roar is a roar that crates a shockwave, ect). I've also told him that we list techniques as they are used and moving them for no reason is not necessary.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 12:54, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

Frustrating bug (don't know if it actually is that, but it seems like that)

Hai! The problem (bug) is on reverting. Mostly reverting article edits goes smoothly, but sometimes it says I don't have the premissions. The problem is more frequent when I try to revert on images. It pretends to have reverted, but it doesn't! I can see the possibility of just being the cache problem, but then why would there be need for someone else reverting it aswell? It's been going on for quite a while, and I didn't want to bother you with it, thinking it would pass/be fixed overnight. But it didn't..!

Chapters

Is Template:ChapterList okay, or do you want the information stored differently? Simant (talk) 02:41, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Also, I was hoping to put the character infobox on an actual page soon for testing, maybe one of the Three Ryūdōin Brothers, since they have siblings and a parent, along with jutsu. Simant (talk) 06:25, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

That would require making separate pages for each chapter which would also still have to be manually updated. We probably won't have a lot of content on each of those chapter pages. I was thinking of including the chapter title as part of the semantic properties of the volume that it is in. Then do something like [[Volume Chapter {{#expr:{{{Volume end}}} - {{{Volume start}}}}}::{{{Chapter1}}}| ]] Simant (talk) 03:13, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

In that case you want it like this except with content and an infobox instead of a soft redirect. Simant (talk) 18:46, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

Character infoboxes update

I'm not sure if there is a forum where I can bring this up, and I was told this was a change we were implementing. From what I can understand, we're making changes on how character infoboxes are handled. Among these changes, some things, such as loyalty, kekkei genkai and chakra natures are going to the infoboxes. However, it seems that once the chakra nature is removed from the ninja icon template, a character is no longer listed as having that nature. Any idea if it is a bug or something yet to be fixed?

Capitalisation of "Path"

Some time ago, you seem to have decided that the path in, for instance, Deva Path shouldn't be capitalised, as you didn't consider it a proper noun.

I would like to ask you to reconsider this decision. The names of the individual Paths of Pain are proper nouns. The path is an integral part of their names and should be treated as such, which includes capitalising them. It is the same reason why the emperor in the posthumous names of the emperors of Japan are capitalised as well. You cannot call the Meiji Emperor only Meiji (明治). He is always the Meiji Emperor (明治天皇, Meiji Tennō). The same goes for the Paths of Pain: you cannot call the Deva Path Deva (天, Ten). He is always Deva Path (天道, Tendō).

The path is an integral part of the name of the bodies and should be capitalised as such. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 20:44, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Well, path shouldn't just be capitalised indiscriminately. When on its own, used not as a proper noun, but as a descriptive noun, it should not be capitalised. For example, take the following sentences: "The Deva Path is one of the Six Paths of Pain. This path has the ability to control gravitational and repulsive forces."
Also, I am all for title case. I get annoyed every time I see the word arc without a capital A in (sub)titles... --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 18:04, January 14, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not 100% sure what you mean by separate rows for Ranks of: "Ninja, ANBU, Samurai, etc." I was thinking that ANBU should be merged with Ninja, as for doing a query on ranks, we could try to find a way to set ANBU to a NULL value when being searched. For Samurai, there are no rank "subcategories," So it would be kinda weird to have a box with a title, Samurai Rank: Samurai. Simant (talk) 18:54, January 21, 2010 (UTC)
