I noticed you changed the word in my comment to GlitterInterformer where she was talking about unprecedented cures. There is a good reason I did not use "disabled". That is because the word can be mistaken for referring to someone who doesn't have a talent for something. You know it is like saying I can sing and play guitar and bass, and the other person is good at brass instruments, or this person is a good dancer while other is a good race car driver. I attempted songwriting, and was influenced by George Carlin where I try to use words with what the correct definitions are so the words and context won't confuse people.
Disabled doesn't mean "not having the talent for something". "Cripple" is offensive language and has been outdated since the 50s. Disability is an umbrella term and the appropriate word for what you tried to say.
I just don't use euphemisms because they hide the truth from people and try to control people's language. It is only offensive when you are referring to someone when the person and the word are not identified that way. If you were to call a blind person "deaf", yes, that would be offensive because that person can hear, but he is unable to see. Whether you like George Carlin and other comedians and writers or not, I'm fine with that, but this is just how I thought this is the correct way to communicate.
Heya LeahCCinnamon, I'm Alex, your new Wiki Manager here to replace SayuriDarling. I'm here to assist you & the Wiki, & will be around anytime you need me, but right now I wanted to let you know that Forum is being retired & having its posts transitioned to Discussions. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out here or on Discord @ Ursuul#0575, cheers!
In his blog, Joseph Barker suggested on making pages for some Healing Good minor casts, though Hibiki and I believe that the better option for these characters is to make a concise list page for them so that they won't get left out (like how we did with Starry Sky Galaxy). Of course these characters will not leave this listing page until they have gained more significance. looking forward to your reply! ^w^
I'm Towa A.K.A Holly, and I'm quite active on Pretty Cure wiki, (especially on the discussion page) and I was just wondering if you or another admin needed any help, or if you have any suggestions on what I can do to contibute to the wiki. Let me know!
You could check out some of the missing summaries especially of latter seasons (missing summaries start at some point with Mahou and are then sporadically covered until now), and write an episode summary that you've seen is still missing.
Recheck with an admin if you're unsure about structure and grammar, otherwise compare it with some of the recent HG summaries (I believe those were done by Hibiki).
I wanted to know how you/the admin team wanted Synopsis and Summary subsections to be organized on the FwPC Episode pages. In those, it generally (to whoever edited those in the past) seems that the Synopsis is the "brief one paragraph summarization" whereas the Summary contains the actual "meat" describing the episode.
However, I noticed that the episode pages for later/more modern seasons such as HGPC, STPC, HuPC, etc. use Summary for the brief paragraph while Synopsis is for the detailed description, so I was sort of confused.
Also, out of curiosity, I was wondering where the "brief episodial paragraphs" came from, if an editor created them by themselves or if translated from an official source.
The brief paragraphs were created by editors. Technically, it should be "synopsis" for the longer section, with "summary" for the shorter section. That there's inconsistencies on many pages doesn't surprise me, sorry for that mess.
By the way, I noticed you uploaded new versions of old images. That's great, but they still carry the old, undescriptive filenames. Now I know that renaming is tough and tiring, and I don't want to burn you out on this stuff, so I can just do it for you when you're done with the screenshots. I could give you a tutorial how to add a bot to your "my tools" section that makes renaming and automatically updating more efficient if you wanna know how to do it yourself, though.
Thank you for your reply.
And yes, I’ll go and account for the image files I updated so I can rename them to be more descriptive, and I would be interested in the tutorial you mentioned, thank you.
As I continue going through the FwPC episodes to revise, I am also trying to account for poorly-categorized (and poorly named) images uploaded by past users, but it is difficult to pinpoint what episodes they come from and such, but I’ll do my best with those.
You are looking for FileUsageAuto-update. It's a script that adds a queue option to the rename button.
The second option is MassRename. This one is great if you have a lot of images that are not put on many pages, because it can rename a lot more files at the same time. It can also rename files with () in them. However, it doesn't update them automatically on the pages, meaning you would have to manually add them.
You will see the follwing instructions: "Put the name of the page you want to rename, then the new name afterwards with a space in between on each separate line. For page names with spaces, use underscores instead of spaces."
Which means if you want to rename BadImageName.jpg to FwPC12 - Good image name.jpg it would look like this:
You can add a lot of items like that. If there's too many files, it will automatically hit a rate limit and tell you when it did.
But who has time to change all spaces to underscores and such, right? Good that there are text tools to our disposal. You open the gallery that you want to rename in source editor, and open Textmechanic. You select Find and Replace text. You copy the gallery into the lowest bar and now you can go wild. My favorite way of doing it atm is replacing "|" with "(linebreak)|" which makes the | that separates the file from the description move in front of the description, and the description move to the next line. Then I go to Remove Lines Containing and remove all lines with "|" in them, which leaves only the files. Then I replace all spaces with underscores in "find and replace text" and finally add the prefix "File:" to the files. Now I have the files ready for the bot and resave them to some other document for the time being (I use notepad for that).
Next up, we need the better filename. Aside some adjustions, the file descriptions can actually work well for that. I separate the filenames from the descriptions in find and replace text once again, take out the filenames in "delete lines containing" and then separate the dot before jpg and png from the files in "find and replace text", putting jpg or png to the next line. Then, in "delete lines containing", I delete all lines not containing dots. I resave the jpg and png list to notepad.
I go to find and replace text again. I separate the filenames from the descriptions. This time, I add the linebreak after the |. I go to "delete lines containing" and remove all filenames, as they have | at the back of the line. I copy the descriptions and resave them to notepad. I take the descriptions to Merge text line by line. I add the descriptions into the left box, and the .jpg .png lines from notepad into the right box, and execute. Now I've got the descriptions with .jpg .png correctly labeled béhind them.
Take those descriptions with .jpg and .png added to the prefix editor, and add the prefix (FwPC12 (or whatever ep name)). Resave to notepad. Add the prefix File: and replace spaces with underscores. Resave to notepad. Go to the merge page, and put the files with underscores to the left, and the fixed filenames with underscores on the right, with a space as a delimiter. Merge lines. Resave to notepad. Add the lines to the MassRename bot. Execute. Readd if ratelimits are hit. Merge FwPC12 filenames without underscores with file descriptions (both were resaved to notepad earlier) with | as a delimiter. Add to gallery page.
This second method sounds really long but if you know how to do it, it takes you about 10 minutes. The unfortunate thing is that it won't replace files on other pages like characters or attacks automatically, so you would have to add them manually. I feel like the text tools can be helpful to any wiki editor though.
Also if you come across poorly named and poor quality images that you don't know which ep they're from, just delete them or put them in your sandbox for now. You can always readd them with a better filename at some point. The images you are adding right now are more than enough for the pages.
I'm really confused on how to propely implement them via the steps, as even though I seemingly put them in the correct format and place (here ), they're not showing up for me. And in the one instance where MassRename randomly showed up in my toolbar, I tried to do it and renamed the files but it refused, saying that all my attempts were "bad tokens" or something.
Currently I've opted to continue manually renaming files one by one but even that is just as frustrating and discouraging because if I do too much it gives me an "action throttled" error meaning I have to wait before doing more.
Things to watch out for is forgetting underscores, leaving out the space in the middle or trying to rename a jpg to a png and so on. The file rename queue is not under the my tools section, but on the filename page itself. It shows up as another option on the manually rename screen. You can click "add to queue" and the queue will update up to 20 images at the same time. If you need screenshots for help, I can provide them.
I still haven't found how to queue image files for renaming, but I did manage to initiate the MassRename tool but only after the Wikia stopped me from manually renaming files and giving me an error page, from which I clicked "My Tools" and found it there. I was able to successfully rename a few files but the rest did not go through as it said I was rate limited. I've included some images so you can better understand, and some images from your side of things would be appreciated as well (https://imgur.com/a/m4XZuhJ ). It doesn't seem like I incorrectly formatted the file names for MassRename as per your instructions, so it must be some other problem.
Rate limited is normal if there are too many images or too many images at the same time. Just keep the files copied in notepad so you can paste them again from the point the rate limiting started (they tell you in the red box as you can see). Now that you have a delay the limit should start much later, though. Refresh your browser a few times so the limit starts working. I think I was able to rename up to 30 images at the same time.
I'll get to the queue in a bit. I see you are creating a few redirects with files. I would like to avoid that, if possible.
Alright, I’ll keep redirects unchecked when renaming from now on, I apologize since you seem to be cleaning up my mistakes at the moment. I only made it up to FwPC08 when renaming FutariPre image files.
This is helpful for a variety of reasons. I can just batch delete the redirects you made, so don't worry about it. Here is the explanation for the queue. https://imgur.com/a/a2fUhYX

Anyways, thank you for all your help, I'll be sure to keep these in mind for future edits.
EDIT: So I can set up the queue, but it only allows me to do three moves before "rate limiting" me and telling me to wait. I know you said that you've been able to queue and bot-edit more than that, so I'm wondering what else I need to do to bypass that limitation.
On the other hand, I renamed most of the poorly-named image files linked to the FwPC episode articles up to around the 17th episode, if you wanted to check how I was doing with those.
