From Sega Retro

Before I update this so we don't have to specify PDFs - was the "vol" parameter ever used and will we miss it if it goes? -Black Squirrel (talk) 12:24, 26 October 2018 (CDT)


\| (.*)_source\=\{\{num\|([0-9]*)\|page\=([0-9]*)\|pdf\=(.*)\.pdf\}\}
| $1_source={{magref|$1|$2|$3}}

^^ For magazines with simple numbering systems, page numbers that line up with the PDF, and with reviews that don't span more than one page.

The results are good but I just feel really really guilty setting it away on 1400+ pages and clogging up the Recent Changes for what would be most of a day. And then I wonder if we should be taking into account the version of a game being reviewed (e.g. region, re-release)... should this data maybe be generated from the magazine articles sub-pages? Will every review need manually revisiting anyway if we're to represent things as stars or whatever

And then there's TV shows - it's really complicated -Black Squirrel (talk) 15:07, 2 January 2019 (EST)

I am considering editing the entire page of Sega Saturn. May I change all pages from num to magref?--Akiyama Akane (talk) 12:33, 13 January 2019 (EST)
Yes - that should be fine -Black Squirrel (talk) 13:41, 13 January 2019 (EST)
Thanks. Then correct the whole as follows.--Akiyama Akane (talk) 18:44, 13 January 2019 (EST)
  • If pdf is not registered in IssueNameStore, it will not be changed.
  • For those with page only, use that value.
Example:| arcade_source={{num|21|page=73|pdf=Arcade UK 21.pdf}} to | arcade_source={{magref|arcade|21|73}}
  • If page and pdfpage are different, leave a comment after magref.
Example:| cdconsoles_source={{num|27|page=90-94|pdf=CDConsoles FR 27.pdf|pdfpage=62}} to | cdconsoles_source={{magref|cdconsoles|27|62}} <|-- page=90-94 -->
  • Delete unused ratings such as | comingsoon, | famitsu com.
