Why is there no Drinking Game for this series?
Yeah, do it. You won't.
I know Fire Emblem and Smash Bros have a closely related history here in the West, but I feel like that last paragraph should be drastically simplified. It's getting awfully lengthy for something that is only tangentially related to the series proper, and it's only going to grow as more Smash games and DLC get released. Maybe it should be reworked as more of a simple list than a fully-written and detailed paragraph.
Maybe it doesn't belong here, but: should we change the series logo to its new version(the Awakening/Fates one)?
Should we have a page dedicated to references in the names for Fire Emblem. As You Know, many characters, weapons, locations, etc. are all derived of historical and mythological references, so I thought we should have a page for it.
Maybe, but make sure that the names you list are actually references. People tend to confuse coincidental similarity something being a reference.
Yeah, I am not willing to put regular names like Edward or, pretty much most of the Dawn Brigade unless there is something significant.
Uhh, how do you make a page?
Go to ShoutOut.Fire Emblem and hit "edit". Remember to index the page.
So new Fire Emblem. Anyone expecting Feet Confirmed because of the trailer now?
Archanea vs Akaneia
Which to use? Seriously, every other article uses the NA names. I think it's high time that we switch to Archanea completely.
Akaneia is the original name. Archanea is the North American name. Methinks it should be the latter.
So I already made a Wiki Talk topic about this issue but it never got an answer, so I thought I'd ask here: Does anyone else think it would be better to sort the games in the series by individual game, rather than by continuity? It looks like there are enough tropes to split the pages up into individual games. We'd just need people familiar with the games in question to sort through the entries.
There's definitely enough material to split Tellius and Jugdral. I don't know about Archanea though. Gaiden would be left without much.
Is this unfunny joke really the best line to caption the page image for every single game in the series?
No, but someone will get their jimmies rustled if we change it. Final Fantasy has an even worse running joke.
Although, I want it gone too. Let's give it 3 days and see if anyone objects.
No objection. "Is Marth or Roy in this one?" There if we change it, then people will always know what joke we were talking about.
So a certain troper, ThePope went ahead and revived that running gag in each page, telling us all in his edit reason to "come up with [better captions] or don't get [our] jimmies rustled" ... even in pages that already had captions (i.e. Awakening's page).
Putting aside the confrontational/taunting tone in his repeated edit reason, it's kind of obvious he just wanted to revive the gag.
Not sure whether its worth it or not to stop him from having his way, though.
I removed it. As you can see, we already discussed it (both here and on the forums) and didn't want it on the pages.
For one, not every image needs a damn caption and if the only thing you can think of is decade old memes that folks were sick of even back then, then leave it alone.
Two people wanted it removed before you went on a "sweeping reform" to remove it.
One person noting a change in a bipartisan manner is not a point in your favor.
The site has running gags, such as the Final Fantasy ones. You might not think they're funny, but other people do.
Four. Four people who are not me wanted it removed. One person wanted it to say, because they still live in 2003 apparently (how is it like over there anyway? How are you even accessing the Internet of over a decade later?). Since you seem to have trouble counting, I will spell it out for you: Bakazuki (1), Thecommander236 (2), Oleeter (3), and abomb30 (4). And I make 5.
Meanwhile, you make one. And I am pretty sure 5 is 4 more than 1. Sorry buddy.
What the Final Fantasy pages do is really none of our concern.
Anyway, your obsessive edit warring has already been brought to the mods at Ask The Tropers, so I don't know what to tell you.
My vote makes 6.
Thecommander gave no objection to changing it, but he also wasn't in favor of outright stripping them. So that's a neutral vote.
Bakazuki didn't actually say whether he wanted a change one way or the other, that was just noting the change.
So that's 2 people who agreed on a massive change before it was enacted, and 2 more who came in later into the matter, so that's 1 vs 4. Five people is not a large enough voter pool to base the change of multiple articles on.
Now if you actually got a thread where more people could chip in and provide alternatives rather than "NOPE STRIP THEM", then maybe we'd be getting somewhere. But until we can have a large, civil discussion, leave them be.
whups double post
Incidentally, I actually rather liked them. Gun to my head, I'd vote for them. I don't think Pope went about this the best way possible (and I feel like some of the votes against him are because of that).
After talking through with a mod, it would be best if we made a forum topic about this so we could have a better agreement on the matter instead of just jumping the gun.
Where can we start a thread on this matter? Because this discussion is too tucked away to suffice.
I would think Wiki Talk.
Lies and more lies, the caption on Fire Emblem Path Of Radiance was funny. Granted, it might not be as funny now that the image has been changed but that is still the same issue. Tropers have a tendency to change what is well enough and look past any number of things that could be cleaned up on the wiki, such as the zero content examples on the Fire Emblem page, as well as those that only apply to individual games in the series (and no I am not going to fix them, your lack of fun has sapped my motivation to do so)
When should Fire Emblem Awakening get a new page?
I'd wait for at least release, if not a bit after. We currently know little about it aside from a few gameplay things, so I doubt we'd be able to make a full page at this time.

How well does it match the trope?
