Fastlane 2016 theme song

Hey, Wagnike. I noticed that the Fastlane page on this Wikia has been locked but the theme song for the event hasn't been added yet.

Could you please add 'Watch This' by Will Roush as the theme song?

Much appreciated,

RE: NOAH pages

Hey, I'll change them. I just copied the format used on the already existing pages and used that as my template. Might I suggest adding a template for the icons used for WrestlingData and CageMatch links? This would make it easier to insert the logo where it should be used than having to type out the entire file name and size. This could be as simple as Template:XP on FFXIV wiki. Simply make a template with [[File:Wrestling Data logo.png|50px]] on it, and nothing else, and it'll insert that wherever you type, say, {{WreData}}. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 18:23, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

Another suggestion, same topic, the current image used is really, really squished. It's impossible to read when it's made so small. I'd suggest cropping out ".com". Should solve the problem while still keeping the logo. As for replacing the old system of just inserting the file manually into pages, that should be a fairly simple task for a bot. I used to maintain a pywikibot for janitor work on various wikis, so I could set that up here for similar tasks. I hope I'm not stepping on any toes here, I'm just looking to help clean up the wiki a bit. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 21:23, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

I'm happy to hear that! I can't guarantee I'll stick around for long, but I hope I can be of use while I'm here. Just let me know when/if I can and I'll set up an icon template for Cagematch and Wrestlingdata, and replace the image used for the latter atm. I could make templates similar to Template:IMDB title, but there's no easy way to replace what's already used with a bot, as far as I know. ~~

Move pages

Hey, saw the community message not to move pages, so I'll post here.

I'm not sure if how city pages should be named, whether it should be "CITY, COUNTRY", "CITY, REGION", or just "CITY". Just looking at Category:Japanese towns it seems to be very inconsistent, some even have "CITY, REGION, COUNTRY". Looking at the Event History page for NOAH, the locations used are all "CITY, COUNTRY", but for the most part city pages seem to be named with "CITY, REGION". This isn't just the case for Japanese towns, looking at other categories there doesn't seem to be too much consistency. There's a decent amount of city pages that need to be moved for consistency. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 17:05, May 1, 2016 (UTC)

Ah, I see! I understand how that might've been the easiest way to do it, at least at first. It's not the most important thing, I suppose. Though, keeping consistency across the wiki is definitely helpful to newer editors, so I would suggest that at some point you look into making city pages more consistent in the naming. Another option is to just make redirects for the more common ways to write city names, I suppose. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 23:51, May 1, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks

Thanks that's why I asked because I didn't know and wanted to make sure what was ok and what wasn't.  Goku20  Talk  ULTRA DBZ  ULTRA POKEMON  00:44,5/2/2016 

Worker Ant and assailANT/Worker Ant II

Hi Wagnike. I decided to jump in and help bring the CHIKARA content on this wiki up to code, but I have a question about policy.

So, there was the original Worker Ant. He retired, but he gave the Worker Ant outfit and gimmick over to the wrestler formerly known as assailANT. But I noticed you redirected assailANT to Worker Ant, even though they're not the same guy. My thoughts were to have assailANT/the second Worker Ant's article at assailANT, but I figured I'd better ask if there was a policy about naming situations like this.

Duplicate pages

Templates

Hey, I know you said you'd think about it when I suggested it, but I've been doing fairly tedious work for the last couple of days (see my Workload page to see what I've been up to), and needed something a bit more interesting to do. While doing it I saw all kinds of variation of links to both Cagematch and WrestlingData, some even without the logo. I've only used the templates on two articles, so it's not a lot of work if you want me to undo it all.

The templates can be found at Template:WDataEvent and Template:CMEvent. Should be fairly easy to make templates for Promotion links and Worker links as well. Like I said, I only added it to two pages, so you can see both of them in effect here (Wrestlingdata) and here (Cagematch). I'd still like to replace the wrestlingdata icon with one that's better, but since that's a change that would affect hundreds, if not thousands, of pages, I didn't want to do that without your go ahead first. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 23:29, May 9, 2016 (UTC)

  • Felt bad constantly bothering Dean with these things so I figured I'd bother you once. I came across NWA Southern Tag Team Championship, a disambiguation page that links to four different variations of the title, only two of which have their own page. I'm having a real hard time finding them on Cagematch too. What I could find however were two titles: 1 and 2 that are called just "NWA Southern Tag Team Championship". This whole thing is very confusing, and I'm not sure how these two titles should be named on the wiki, I'm having a hard time replacing the links to the disambiguation page. Any ideas? -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 09:32, May 19, 2016 (UTC)
  • All right, sounds like the best thing to do right now. Thanks! -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 14:16, May 19, 2016 (UTC)
  • All right, good to know! Thanks for being so quick on taking care of the minor stuff I post by the way, appreciate it! -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 21:55, May 19, 2016 (UTC)
  • Hey, The New Breed and New Breed are duplicates, both being disambiguation pages linking to the same two articles. Should probably keep New Breed imo? In addition, New Breed (tag team) redirects back to the New Breed disambiguation page, so it needs to either be deleted or a proper article needs to be used. Not sure how you want to have this done. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 09:41, May 20, 2016 (UTC)

Hi Nic,

My name is Marvin Ward. I am from Virginia. I own AWE, Awesome Wrestling Entertainment. I just recently found your page and I signed up to edit the content because the information listed is false. My login username is aweinc. I had everything corrected and went to save it and it prevented me from changing the page and blocked me from editing. I would appreciate the opportunity to correct the information on my own company. There were never any other owners other than myself and a silent investor. That Steve person nor Dave Hebner were never owners. The date founded was wrong and it was never known by any other name. The information is false. I am asking you to please correct the information since I am blocked from doing so. I think its great that AWE is listed on your page but if the correct information is not listed I am asking you to please remove my company from your page all together. The correct information is listed below. I appreciate your help in this matter! 

Awesome Wrestling Entertainment is a United States based wrestling entertainment company. AWE was founded and is owned by Marvin Ward and was built to offer fans the lost art of kayfabe and bring back 80s style sports entertainment. In 2011 AWE made history and became the first wrestling company that did not have a weekly television deal to host a Live PPV event on INDEMAND PPV. The event was called AWE Night of the Legends and the hopes were to use the PPV as a stepping stone to obtain a national TV deal. The PPV was a success but was not enough to attract a cable broadcast company. Currently AWE is planning to relaunch in the fall of 2016 with a new format and new roster. AWE is headquartered in Virginia.

Duplicate categories

Hey, figured I'd make a new section, got a bit messy. Category:WrestleWar and Category:Wrestle War should be merged. It should be WrestleWar, at least the PPVs on the Network are titled as WrestleWar in one word. Which means WCW Wrestle War and NWA Wrestle War should also be moved/renamed. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 12:51, May 24, 2016 (UTC)
