I was finally able to buy a deck of KH cards, and finished the card infobox templates to the best of my knowledge, so we can start doing these right. However, I think it would also be a good idea to get a separate card namespace like the Digimon Wiki has, so that it is possible to search for the card you want. This would need community consensus and a request to the central wiki, but it's quick and painless once we agree on it.

Other considerations -

  • The Digimon Wiki's character infoboxes list all cards that depict that character. Do we want to do that?
  • Unlike Digimon cards, the set name is not listed on the card, and there doesn't seem to be official acronyms. The sets are:
    • Base Set
    • A Darkness Awakened
    • Light and Darkness
    • Break of Dawn
  • Do we want to use "BS", "ADA", "LAD", and "BOD" as the acronyms?
  • We need to set up a messagebox like Card:Agumon has to link back to the depicted character's article.
  • I need help setting up switches for: getting the set acronyms to the full name, getting the rarity acronyms to the full name, and getting "-" in the home world entry to "TCG cards with no home world" or something similar, or just having it not categorize in that case (or just leave it blank, but we'd still need a switch).
  • If anybody would prefer different colors for the infoboxes, please speak up.
  • I'm going to post a link to an archive of the scans I have, but I will need help getting the scans I'm missing, and possibly getting better quality scans.
  • We need to set up cardlist pages like Digi-Battle Card Game.

It's really urgent that I get your input on this, guys.

TerraCharm.pngI think everything's fine. And I'd be more than willing to help with the scans...not making promises that I'll find everything. If I don't, it's not that hard to put the picture template up. And I'd say the acronyms are fine, but lowercase the small words like "and" and "of." Other than that, It's gold in my opinion.

This sounds good! Ghostboy3000 11:38, September 26, 2009 (UTC)

Alright, we're rolling! See Card:Sora for the start of what's going on. Beyond just filling out the card articles, here's what we've got to handle:
  • Again, is everyone okay with the infobox colors? Are there any complaints about the setup at all so far?
  • Still need to set up a switch for cards with an empty world.
  • Cardlist page.
  • Do we want to cover the Japanese cards at all?
  • Make sure to credit the scans we use, as done with the current image in the Card:Sora article.

TerraCharm.pngIt's all very well laid out. My only problem is the red link in the first infobox. The Cardlist page shouldn't be that hard to make, and credit for scans is a given. I can't really say for the Japanese cards, though...might be something to mention, or put a scan in the Gallery section. Since we focus on the English version of the franchise here, it may seem a tad out of place, don't you think?

The red link is there for the image, because the scan hasn't been uploaded yet. I have the card, but I don't have a scanner. If I can get one, I'll upload it, but otherwise I only have the BoD scans which are on the official website.

As far as I've heard, the American cards are a straight translation of the Japanese ones, unlike in Digimon, where they are completely different and form a major arm of the franchise (so covering both is necessary). If that's not wrong, then there's really no need for the Japanese card sections.

TerraCharm.pngAh. I see. Well, rather than an infobox for the Japanese cards, why not just put it in a Gallery that said "Japanese Card" or something...
