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

  • I've sorted it. Dean27 (talk) 16:36, May 6, 2016 (UTC)

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)

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)

  • So I finished making sure nothing links to disambiguation pages and wanted to add the Steve Austin's Event history from his beginning at USWA, and I have a question for it. If you look at his page on WrestlingData here, you see some of the events were TV Tapings. In the first TV Taping of that month, Austin won the TV Championship from Bobby Eaton. The matches were aired at the end of the month on WCW WorldWide. Do you count TV Tapings as House Events, or do you not add them to the database at all? The matches are not available on CageMatch, which is why I'm using WrestlingData for it. Cagematch doesn't have records of any of Bobby Eaton's matches as TV Champ. I'm asking because it would be odd to list the match against Bobby Eaton twice, once for the TV Taping event and once for the WCW WorldWide event.
Second part of the question, in this TV Taping Austin defends the title, but it looks like the matches either weren't aired, or at least not on any of WCW's regular programming. The match is also available on CageMatch. Basically, I'm a bit stuck and not sure what to do. Should I include TV Tapings if they weren't aired on a program, and ignore them if they were aired? -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 17:51, May 25, 2016 (UTC)
  • That sounds fine to me, I can't really think of a way to do it. What you're saying is I include both the TV Taping match and the TV show match in the event history, right? I can add a footnote for both entries that explains it all. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 21:29, May 25, 2016 (UTC)
  • I made a change to the Steve Austin event page, check it out here. Instead of a footnote there's an extra column for short notes. Of course there are some matches between the two I'll add, but I just wanted to show what I figured would be the easiest way to do it. Column might be a bit small but it's the best way I can think of displaying it. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 22:16, May 25, 2016 (UTC)
  • Great, and thanks! I'll get back to work then. -=KAG=-YELL AT ME 22:24, May 25, 2016 (UTC)

Vandalism

Just wanted to let you know that user WrestlingFan1969 has been vandalizing Andrew Anderson's page all morning long. He's violating the Wikia TOS and we need him to stop.

This is the proof:
