Manga raws

Hi! From where did you get raws for the Kazumi manga? Does the same place also has raws for other manga entries as well? WizardFlower (talk) 17:50, 13 May 2023 (UTC)

I downloaded a torrent from somewhere. I don't know if it has raws for others. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 00:19, 15 May 2023 (UTC)

Is it possible to share the link with me here? Or is there some rule that forbids that? WizardFlower (talk) 01:29, 16 May 2023 (UTC)

I don't know if there's a rule forbidding it. I'm hesitant to share a torrent link in any case. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 23:26, 15 May 2023 (UTC)


Do you think Arne is worth adding into minor characters of Magia Record? He fairly contributed to the story's plot and we'll, to the girls' development a bit as well.WizardFlower (talk) 14:06, 15 June 2023 (UTC)

I was considering it. He never makes an appearance but he does have an outsized influence on the plot. The main reason I didn't end up adding him myself is because he never made a appearance. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 02:12, 16 June 2023 (UTC)

Characters by Age

I will add Kyosuke in 14 because I got a confirmation for his age. Also, do you have Kuroe's age anywhere? Yes we know she's middle school 3rd year but when was her age said? I kind of feel like it's not correct taking ages from grades for a handful of reasons. And last, eh is it safe to make assumptions regarding ages? We never got any mention to Haitani and Kuroda's ages. WizardFlower (talk) 11:17, 23 June 2023 (UTC)

I don't know where Kuroe's age came from. It was added to her page in an edit by User:Cookies0628.
I think it's pretty reasonable to guess that Haitani and Kuroda are the same age as Asahi, but you're right that there's some assumption in there, so I wouldn't really mind them being moved to the Unknown section.
In case you missed it, see Talk:Characters by Age.

NA screencaps

Gamepress still has all the stuff I did for them, including extensive menu screencaps and other screenshots I had put up. Sondenise (talk) 03:01, 4 August 2023 (UTC) Ok, I uploaded the rest of the skill icons. Sondenise (talk) 13:51, 9 August 2023 (UTC)

0x99 got back to me: "It looks like there were some permissions changed in recent version of MediaWiki for editing the UI. I've fixed this, and all autoconfirmed users should be able to edit Mediawiki:Common.css."

Let me know if it still won't allow you to edit the page.Sondenise (talk) 20:05, 11 August 2023 (UTC)

Skill Icons

Can you please fix Template:Magia_Record_Skill_Icon so that "MP gain up when damaged has the correct icon"? it should be the yellow MP icon with a single arrow (icon 1227), but it looks like you have two different effects pointing to the same thing (mp gain up icon 1180). Thank you! Sondenise (talk) 17:48, 23 August 2023 (UTC)

It has been fixed. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 18:01, 23 August 2023 (UTC)

I just realized, but the "add magia seal" icon is duplicated on the Template:Magia_Record_Skill_Icon and when I checked the Magia_Record_Skills_and_Status_Effects it seems like it's missing entirely.Sondenise (talk) 19:34, 10 May 2024 (UTC)

I see it on the latter page (you can get there just by clicking the icon anywhere it appears). I do see the duplicate icon as well. It looks like the duplicate was intended to represent a possibly non-extant "negate magia seal" effect. Does that exist? Is there even an icon for it? If it doesn't exist, I can just delete it from the template page. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 00:51, 12 May 2024 (UTC)

Side Characters Order

to let tou know, I ordered these characters based on their ID their L2Ds are given. Which I am certain its the most official and correct way to go by, as the reorder you did feels like it may have holes later. Wizard Flower (talk) 19:59, 06 October 2023 (UTC)

Ordering by ID is completely nonsensical though. I could understand falling back to that if there's no actual logical order, but I don't think that applies here. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 17:30, 6 October 2023 (UTC)

We also use ID numbers for Magical Girls units, so I'd maintain consistency if we used IDs for side characters too.Wizard Flower (talk) 21:59, 06 October 2023 (UTC)

I'd argue there's no reason to use IDs anywhere unless no other natural ordering exists. There are some orderings that sort of make sense for the main story characters, but they're not exactly "natural" so I don't mind sorting them by ID there. (For example, in Arc 1, you'd group Mikazuki Villa, then Mitama, then the twins, the Magius, Kanagi, and Ui, in that order. Karin and Asuka technically aren't main story characters so either move them to side store or just add them at the end.) This approach could also apply to the side story characters, but there are enough interrelations between those characters that I don't think you could come up with a single "obvious" ordering.
But using ID numbers for minor characters definitely makes even less sense than for major characters. The major characters are somewhat grouped logically with respect to their IDs – for example, Mikazuki Villa gets the lowest 5 IDs. But the minor characters (8000's range, I think?) are just thrown together in no particular order, at best maaaybe vaguely in release order. If you order them by ID, it'll just look like a chaotic mess.
If you still think that's better than the way I ordered them, then it's not like I can stop you from reordering them again by ID. But I really do think it makes more sense not to do that. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 23:42, 6 October 2023 (UTC)

Hi Celtric, They probably removed the IDs because on the character discussion page, part of the argument was if we're going to move characters around based on their importance to the story (like moving the Tokimes up to Arc 2 main characters, and then have inui with the side characters because she has a witch, and move Asuka down to side characters etc etc) then there's no point in showing the category ID on each table in teh characters page. I mean, if we're not going to strictly follow that convention, then why have it? It's just misleading otherwise. Sondenise (talk) 13:55, 19 March 2024 (UTC)

The ID ranges are still approximately true, but I do kind of see what you mean. Then again, I don't think there was ever a time when they were exact. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 00:09, 21 March 2024 (UTC)
