[edit]

Not to step on anybody's toes, but wouldn't it be interesting and iconic to have the Slime in this wikia's logo? SpongeBathBill 19:22, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

genau dragon quest ist super!

Hello[edit]

Your spoiler and navigation templates coding is straightly ripped from Final Fantasy Wikia. Least you could do is refer the history of such templates from the Final Fantasy Wiki to credit the people who worked on them. - Henryacores^ 22:07, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

If that's the case then I might go and try to tweak those templates some (even though I hardly ever see the spoiler tag since the front page of this wiki gives a spoiler warning). I'll make note of this in the template pages for now, but are you certain the templates originated from Final Fantasy Wiki? When something is borrowed once it doesn't take long for it to get around. Just sayin'. --PantheonSasuke 23:49, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

Who has deleted everything?! T_T

DQ News[edit]

We might wanna hold off on praising the number of articles we have, especially when the vast majority of said articles are duplicates, ehheh heh... ehh... --PantheonSasuke 00:15, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

I fixed it. ha ha. --Pagoda 05:16, March 11, 2010 (UTC)


Playable Characters Template[edit]

Does we need to make a distinction between playable characters and non-playable characters in each Dragon Quest series characters Template?151.95.106.12 20:03, September 29, 2010 (UTC)

Recent Edit[edit]

The most recent edit here, as of this talk edit, placed this bit of text on the main page.

ja:DRAGON QUEST Wiki de: es: 

... along with a picture of Sancho. The text was given links pertaining to the ja:DRAGON QUEST, the de:, and the es:, which from what I see, looks like language options (Japanese, Deutsch (sp), English), but I don't think this wiki has those kind of options on it.

So... was there purpose to this edit? Or should it be regarded as gibberish and rolled back? --PantheonSasuke 02:46, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Unless there's going to be a translation of the wiki, it should be removed. Moreover, the home page should be locked to all but administrators to cut down on vandalism. This is how it is done on other wikis and it is a good idea. Otherwise, you'll have what happened to another wiki that shall remain unnamed that had on its homepage Kill all of the (insert pejorative here). --Shinitenshi 03:02, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Homepage Redesign[edit]

The homepage has been redesigned! I went ahead and took a stab at creating something that is dynamic and interesting based off of the old Dragon Quest Wiki and the existing homepage. Please feel free to give comments and feedback as I am not married to anything about it. Here are a few points to note...

  • The Dragon Quest News is pulled from the Dragon's Den RSS feed. I'm sure there is a better way to style it, but I didn't go that far yet.
  • I don't have a schedule for how often the featured video will be updated yet.
  • I'm not genius when it comes to colors and designs. It would be great if we could find someone to do some design/image work for the wiki. Woodus was generous enough to make the logo. It would be nice to come up with a good color scheme so that everything looks a bit more polished. It can really make the difference when visitors come to the homepage.

Independent Wikis[edit]

Well now that you are an independent wiki, you'll find out how difficult it is to keep afloat and grow beyond the dedicated core members. I own operate WiKirby and work in NIWA (Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance). We're more than a simple link exchange, sometimes you might need assistance on things beyond the experience of your members. NIWA is meant to bring independent Nintendo wiki editors, staff, and developers together and help one another grow and implement the tools they want. If you guys want to be a part of that, we'll be glad to have a Dragon Quest wiki in. Feel free to browse the wikis listed and you'll see how tight our organization has become. Members of NIWA often contribute to several wikis in the alliance.

Anyway, I recommend reading the NIWA About page to get an understanding of what it is. The forums are there if you want to meet other members, but I hope to hear from people here too. Axiomist 23:56, 24 November 2010 (CST)

Axiomist, my apologies for allowing this to go unanswered for so long. Life happens as I am sure you are aware. I will begin to stir the discussion again on this topic. To be honest, NIWA was something that impressed me when it was founded a year ago. It seems like a really good idea among groups who share some common goals. Thank you for taking the time to share some informative links. --FlyingRagnar 23:41, 12 January 2011 (CST)

Perhaps it's me... but...[edit]

It feels like Dragon Quest Wiki is slower to load. Is it because of the recent spam that has appeared in the Wiki? --V7ing 22:36, 30 August 2011 (CDT)

Error in the main page[edit]

In the bottom, where it has Dragon Quest 25th Anniversary Collection as the next Japanese release, its platform is the Wii, not the Nintendo DS. --V7ing 16:39, 6 September 2011 (CDT)

Oopsies. Fixed. --FlyingRagnar 19:12, 6 September 2011 (CDT)

SEIWA Update[edit]

Hey everyone, SEIWA has a new member, so I was wondering a few things:

  • could someone add them to the main page?
  • please head on over and give them a congrats. Here is the link.
  • please update your news thread when you get a chance.

TacoBud 19:50, 21 March 2012 (CDT)


When someone gets a chance, please update the SEIWA box and post news, we have a new member! TacoBud 18:16, 29 June 2012 (CDT)

SEIWA link[edit]

Hi, the SEIWA link (the visual link, not the link on the image) should link to http://seiwanetwork.org, not http://www.seiwanetwork.org. Thanks, Randomno 11:56, 30 March 2012 (CDT)

Good catch. Fixed. --FlyingRagnar 12:10, 30 March 2012 (CDT)

New NIWA member[edit]

When someone gets a chance, please stop over in the NIWA forums to gather the information on the newest member. TacoBud (talk) 19:09, 19 January 2014 (CST)

SEIWA[edit]

Hi, I am TheFifteenthMember, an editor from the KHWiki. In our recent roundtable meeting, we agreed that SEIWA's status is practically dead and inactive so we proposed that the five members of SEIWA disband and continue on as independent sites. Former SEIWA members can then be linked to each other as affiliates. We'd like to know the Dragon Quest Wiki's thoughts on the matter; do you agree with this plan? TheFifteenthMember (talk) 18:27, 13 September 2014 (CDT)

Hey guys, I'm KeybladeSpyMaster, editor at the Kingdom Hearts Wiki. A fuller discussion resulted in the revival, rather than disbandment, of the Square Enix Independent Wiki Alliance. I'm really trying to get SEIWA back up, and we'd love to see it happen. However, we need your help. We need your input on how to get this done. I've started a forum here, which I hope you guys will get involved with. As I state in that forum, I'd especially love the people who were originally involved with SEIWA to come, so if you know any of them, please ask them to return if only to give us direction. Thanks! 50.168.202.169 23:04, 20 October 2014 (CDT)

merge welcome to Join the Quest section[edit]

Would it be okay to merge the welcome message and introductory paragraphs and spoiler warning down to the Join the Quest section? This would give the DQI to DQX image links more visibility, keeping them above the fold on phones and other small screens. It would also improve accessibility, so that screen readers wouldn't have to speak all that text before finally getting to the links. Rigel Kent (talk) 22:18, 28 November 2015 (CST)

I made an attempt to merge them together. I agree it was a bit wordy at the top. Take a look and feel free to make addition modifications. --FlyingRagnar (talk) 13:59, 29 November 2015 (CST)
