Hi there, thank you for helping out here! :) I did a majority of the content here (including logos, templates, etc, some reused from the Kingdom Hearts Wiki and Mario Wiki). This wiki was founded in Jan 2020, and has been an uphill effort for sure. Results May Vary (talk) 22:20, December 23, 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome! I'm very shy but I do hope I'll be able to help out to some degree. ^^; --Zeal (talk) 22:23, December 23, 2021 (UTC)
No problem, and you already are helping by uploading the Pixel Master sprites. :D You might be interested in seeing the format of some articles like Zombie Dragon, Flame Sword, Cloud Strife, Concentration, Magna Roader, and Mt. Hobs. By the way, I know you're new but are you able to create new pages? I think the MediaWiki software is set to allow new pages to be created if your account is at least one day old & you've made at least 5 edits (I'm just wondering because I thought file uploads were one of the autoconfirmed limits -- you're good btw, don't worry). Results May Vary (talk) 22:45, December 23, 2021 (UTC)
I made a new category for the sprites, so I can proooobably make new pages proper? (also sorry for making so many tiny edits at once I feel like I'm making a mess of things aaa) --Zeal (talk) 22:52, December 23, 2021 (UTC)
Oh yeah that's true, you did. I would try to get things done in one edit (I suggest using Preview button before publishing) but it's no worry if it's like 3-5 times. Just don't make like, for example, 16-20 minor edits to the same article in a row. Results May Vary (talk) 22:54, December 23, 2021 (UTC)


Awesome edits to the Goblin article and gallery :D Results May Vary (talk) 21:28, December 24, 2021 (UTC)

Oh gosh, thanks! I don't think I'm terribly good at writing or structuring things but I'm going to try my best nonetheless. Please let me know if there's anything I'm doing wrong at any point or anything. ^^; --Zeal (talk) 02:09, December 25, 2021 (UTC)
You did teach me something new with the distinction of the tutorial Goblins in Final Fantasy V :) Results May Vary (talk) 04:44, December 25, 2021 (UTC)


I gave my responses on Gallery talk:Goblin. I hope they help :) Results May Vary (talk) 21:31, January 15, 2022 (UTC)

Definitely, thanks a lot~ --Zeal (talk) 22:48, January 15, 2022 (UTC)
No prob, I hope we can continue working together more in the future. I just been kind of more tired lately... and doing original research while writing RPG-related articles, cross check official sources, etc... quite exhausting isn't it Results May Vary (talk) 00:25, January 16, 2022 (UTC)

Cure article looks phenomenal!!![edit]

And yes you implemented the Thai language perfectly to the Foreign names template as well. All these great contribs make me want to post :D :D :D a lot! Results May Vary (talk) 03:57, January 18, 2022 (UTC)

aaaaa, thanks! I'm still consistently worried I'm doing things wrong, hopefully I'll get past that at some point. ^^; --Zeal (talk) 04:07, January 18, 2022 (UTC)
I think you will -- you have done really good work thus far & have gotten hang of the style here like almost immediately. That's not common for a newly registered user (I'm not being rude to them either -- this is a compliment :) ). Results May Vary (talk) 04:26, January 18, 2022 (UTC)
Amazing work! Definitely missing some FF8/FF10 info around here (for the main series I've only gone up to FF7 & FF9 as i haven't reached the end of FF8, FF10, or FF12 as well as FF3). Results May Vary (talk) 19:03, January 26, 2022 (UTC)
Oh gosh, I'm still totally in a state where I'm scared I'm messing everything up. But given I've played all the main series games (though I've not finished a huge percentage of the content in the MMOs and still need to get around to finishing the rest of XV) and a significant portion of the spinoffs I figure I should try my best to add info from all of them and all. ^^;
(also, question, I labeled Rude "Turks:Rude" in the enemy box thing in my edits yesterday since that's what the menu calls him in-battle ingame, but should I just remove the first part for Reno and Elena too if they show up on any pages I work on going forward?)
--Zeal (talk) 19:53, January 26, 2022 (UTC)
Ohhhh sorry my mistake -- feel free to add the "Turks:Rude" back. I thought it was a spacing error or something. Results May Vary (talk) 20:13, January 26, 2022 (UTC)
Yeahhh, FF7's English script can be really weird about that sorta thing. ^^; So sorry to bother over random minor things like this! --Zeal (talk) 20:27, January 26, 2022 (UTC)
But yeah in-game name should take precedent, so you're correct :D Results May Vary (talk) 20:30, January 26, 2022 (UTC)

Goblin names[edit]

Are these names in other language of Goblin in terms of Final Fantasy or the folklore creatures themselves? It should be the former (just making sure) in case it's not, as translations for subjects with regular names can differ. Results May Vary (talk) 05:51, January 18, 2022 (UTC)

It's the former, yeah, largely verified by cross-checking against foreign-language Let's Plays and streams of official releases across the series. I can't guarantee I didn't miss the odd game with a slightly different name for them, though, my search was pretty wide, after all. I can speak Japanese and to a lesser extent German but it'd be a bit tougher to double-check guides and the like for any of the others. ^^;
As an aside, the German Mystic Quest name is kind of a pun, Giftzwerg is literally "poison dwarf" but it's also slang for an unpleasant person, I wasn't sure whether to try to fit a note of that there.
--Zeal (talk) 06:53, January 18, 2022 (UTC)
Okay, appreciated :D. Also I do think it's a good idea to add a note about the German FFMQ name because it is an interesting piece of information. Results May Vary (talk) 07:04, January 18, 2022 (UTC)

WIP on new enemy stat templates[edit]

You can see on Final Fantasy bestiary. Then it can be transcluded into the articles themselves -- more efficient than manually adding stats into the articles themselves.

e.g. on Final Fantasy bestiary:

|image=[[File:Goblin FF PSP sprite.png]]

on Goblin article:

{{:Final Fantasy bestiary|transcludesection=Goblin}}

new page creation[edit]

For a few days (1-2 or to, I think) page creation was accidentally disabled for all users as there was a spammer IP who was making nonsense pages, so now it's only IPs who can't make pages. Did you experience any issues? Results May Vary (talk) 15:08, January 31, 2022 (UTC)


I saw you logged on & wanted to give you an e-hug :D Kristak made an FF10 template a few days ago (it's still in a working stage). Meanwhile I've updated the List of characters and List of items pages (to-do: List of characters by game). I'll prob make a preliminary List of enemies article next. Results May Vary (talk) 15:53, February 9, 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, I've been checking up on recent changes daily, I've just been a bit preoccupied with stuff, sorry for the lack of contributions lately! --Zeal (talk) 18:25, February 9, 2022 (UTC)
No problem -- we all are busy with life & other projects to a degree Results May Vary (talk) 18:46, February 9, 2022 (UTC)

if possible[edit]

Feel free to replace the PSP sprites within the bestiary infoboxes with Pixel Remaster ones, as these are the latest release, if that makes sense. Thank you again for your help! Results May Vary (talk) 19:41, February 13, 2022 (UTC)

Oh, sure! Maybe I should focus on uploading all of those first, then xD —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zeal (talkcontribs)
If you want to Results May Vary (talk) 20:04, February 13, 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for uploading all those sprites. You're doing great on the Final Fantasy bestiary article as well :) Results May Vary (talk) 01:44, February 17, 2022 (UTC)

Thank you for the Mount Duergar catch[edit]

I tried to find a name from FF NES (as I didn't play through that one, so I used YouTube for a reference) but couldn't find it. Keep up the amazing work! :D Results May Vary (talk) 18:23, February 21, 2022 (UTC)

Oh gosh, thanks! I've been starting to consider whether I should try to help out with the other independent wikis in this general family, too, but I'm still very nervous about all this, since I've never really edited wikis before now and all, y'know? --Zeal (talk) 18:36, February 21, 2022 (UTC)
Definitely, I've actually founded Gaming Wiki Network and have had a large involvement in most of its wikis (starting them, moving off Fandom, etc.) Sanrio Wiki was the first outside affiliate. You'll find friendly people in each of the communities :) Results May Vary (talk) 18:59, February 21, 2022 (UTC)
aaaa I'll try my best to work up the courage. I started out editing this one on a whim, after all. ^^; --Zeal (talk) 19:28, February 21, 2022 (UTC)
I am here to help & support you every step of the way :) Results May Vary (talk) 19:47, February 21, 2022 (UTC)

Weapon icon formatting[edit]

I think I might have an idea of how to go about it. I'll see if I can try it out later today. Results May Vary (talk) 13:27, March 5, 2022 (UTC)

Okay check out Template:Weapon-icon. Results May Vary (talk) 17:43, March 5, 2022 (UTC)

in case you wondering[edit]

Hi there, just in case you wondering where i am nowadays i been focused on some Miraheze wikis such as this one. Results May Vary (talk) 16:13, March 29, 2022 (UTC)
