To display a memoria, you have to put the code on the image description itself. Basically click the image, then click edit. just look at a different memoria and copy the format. Once you do that and put it on the character page between the two sets of brackets how you were doing it'll show up. Sondenise (talk) 04:03, 30 September 2023 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll do that in the future. Amaterasu (talk) 11:03, 30 September 2023 (UTC)


I undid your \n removal on Madoka Magica Online Story Quest 11 and instead replaced them with <br>, which was probably the original intention. I copied the entire text into a text editor and just used find and replace all. I'm noting it here in case there are \n on other pages too, and because I accidentally submitted before I finished writing the edit summary. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 13:40, 13 October 2023 (UTC)

Thats fair, and I'll do that in the future. Thanks for telling me! Amaterasu (talk) 15:03, 13 October 2023 (UTC)


Just letting you know, you don't need to create redirects for plurals (unless it is a highly irregular plural). You can just write [[wraith]]s and the link will automatically expand to include the S. (That goes for other letters besides just S too, so you could for example do that for a -ed or -ing ending.) ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 23:14, 17 October 2023 (UTC)

Oh. I see. Thanks! Amaterasu (talk) 01:59, 18 October 2023 (UTC)


In case you were planning to make card galleries also for Kyoko, Mami, and Sayaka, you can find all the Mobage cards at Category:Madoka Mobage Star Cards. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 04:08, 6 November 2023 (UTC)

Thanks! I was planning on doing that, so having an actual "bank" of their cards is useful. Amaterasu (talk) 11:44, 6 November 2023 (UTC)
Why did you suddenly delete six of them? ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 18:58, 7 November 2023 (UTC)
Duplicates, I think? I wouldn't have deleted them if they weren't duplicates. Amaterasu (talk) 19:33, 7 November 2023 (UTC)
If they are duplicates, can you add the category to the ones they're duplicates of? ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 00:38, 8 November 2023 (UTC)
Yeah, sure. I'll do it! Amaterasu (talk) 12:39, 8 November 2023 (UTC)
…when exactly…? ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 03:44, 9 November 2023 (UTC)
Also, for the last pair, why did you delete the ones that were inconsistently named and not categorized instead of the ones that were consistently named and properly categorized? If the other one had been a png instead of jpg that would make sense, but they were both jpg… or was the other higher-res? ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 03:46, 9 November 2023 (UTC)
First answer: soon. I am currently trying to clear out the "unused files" section, so it will take time before I get to categorizing the files. For your second, the ones I didnt delete were already in use and I didnt want to replace them. Amaterasu (talk) 12:05, 9 November 2023 (UTC)
My brain works in a weird way. If I interrupt an activity, I need to complete the other activity before I go back to the interrupted. Its more efficient for me to move on from one project to another once the first is done. Amaterasu (talk) 12:07, 9 November 2023 (UTC)

How to Tell

This is in response to your deletion log message:

Used. Weird how its technically in use but the files dont show it.

The way I've been identifying files to undelete is via Special:WantedPages. To detect that they're used so as to avoid deleting them in the first place, or to make them not be used anymore (which might be more appropriate for some of them), you can go to the file page and click on "What links here" in the tools section of the sidebar. It seems that direct linking to a file (rather than embedding it) doesn't count for the "File Usage" section on the file's page. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 18:33, 9 November 2023 (UTC)

Ooh, good idea! I'll do that in the future. Amaterasu (talk) 03:35, 10 November 2023 (UTC)

Future of Fanworks

Content moved to the talk page for the main page

Puella Magi Madoka Magica TPS

The wikipedia page for Kyoko Sakura mentions a Kyoko Sakura and Sayaka Miki third person shooter (go to the page, hit ctrl F and paste "Puella Magi Madoka Magica TPS Featuring Sayaka Miki & Sakura Kyoko"). We dont seem to have a page for it on the wiki, but there also doesnt seem to be much information about it in general. I dont even know if that is the correct name or not.

Henshin screenshots

Yo, there's a better way to get fullres screencaps from the henshins than just screenshotting - download the henshin from here and then run it through OpenShot (I tried other video editors, but they introduced new artifacting and bluriness half the time). The MagiReco henshins use the FHD 1080p 23.98 fps (1920x1080) profile; just go to export video, then set the profile, then go to the advanced section and pick "series of images". Taking a screenshot from the game means the image will be rescaled, compressed, it'll have the skip button and overall the quality will be worse; this allows you to skip that. EPF (talk) 11:44, 15 January 2024 (UTC)

Great, but I'm not the one screenshotting them (I am merely cleaning up the screenshots). I think Celtic Minstrel is the one who does it? Amaterasu (talk) 12:48, 16 January 2024 (UTC)
Nope, I haven't uploaded any transformation shots. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 13:55, 16 January 2024 (UTC)
Weird. Maybe Sondenise then? I know someone has been uploading them. I'll undelete the old M0miHenshin.jpg file to see who uploaded it. Amaterasu (talk) 14:19, 16 January 2024 (UTC)
Yep, it was Sondenise. Amaterasu (talk) 14:20, 16 January 2024 (UTC)


Your rationale for deleting a detailed written description of Kuroe was:

It doesn't appear in other pages, so it shouldn't appear here.

I don't think this makes any sense. It's useful to have a written description (though that was a little too detailed – "peach skin"? Really?), so not appearing in other pages seems to me to be more of a reason to add it to the other pages rather than deleting it from Kuroe's page. (Though obviously that's a huge amount of work and I'm not suggesting you actually go and do it… still, I don't think there's any good reason to delete it from Kuroe's page when someone went to the trouble of actually writing that.) ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 23:50, 7 April 2024 (UTC)

I just realized that the one who wrote it was you? So it's not quite as bad if that's the case, but I still think the general argument here stands. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 23:59, 7 April 2024 (UTC)
When I initially created the page it wasn't really in line with the rest of the wiki norms. I tried to revamp the page to be more in line with the rest of the wiki. If you think its good for the section to stay, though, then I wont contest it. Amaterasu (talk) 11:50, 8 April 2024 (UTC)
As I said, I think it wouldn't hurt to have written descriptions of everyone's appearance, but that's a lot of work so I'm not going to outright suggest it. Maybe at least the main cast already has written descriptions in the novelization though…? ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 13:54, 8 April 2024 (UTC)
I'll think about going through main character pages and adding descriptions on their designs. I don't mind doing it. I actually find it fun! Amaterasu (talk) 14:11, 8 April 2024 (UTC)
Fair enough. I wouldn't consider it a priority though, more a nice to have thing. Stuff like adding all the missing lore and character info (pretty much every Magia Record page is missing tons of info like that) would be higher priority for me. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 17:32, 8 April 2024 (UTC)

Episode Navigation

Instead of copy-pasting the template content and modifying it, don't you think it'd be better to extend the template to do what you want it to do? ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 18:01, 11 April 2024 (UTC)

It would. I'm not knowledgeable on how to do that, sadly. Amaterasu (talk) 18:03, 11 April 2024 (UTC)
It's not hard to find the MediaWiki documentation online. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 23:33, 11 April 2024 (UTC)
Ok. I'll look into it when I have the time. Amaterasu (talk) 23:45, 11 April 2024 (UTC)
