I assume you mean the info box template? If so, how they currently are works fine; some have tabs if necessary (when a character has appeared in more than one season of anime) and just one picture in the box.
I realise now you must have been looking at Thunder Dracyan's page; it's one of the few (I think there are others) who have this exception and include 2 pictures in the box instead of one because the Japanese and Hasbro versions look quite different. This doesn't mean it requires a new tab; the tab is only done so to present separate and a large amount of information to the box e.g. character descriptions from one season, see Yamato's page, to the next or a change in character like Rudy Sumeragi's page.
The main reason we don't do the tabbed thing for all of them is that some we just don't have the picture for the Tomy or Hasbro versions; it would look uneven to have some tabbed then and others not or even have them tabbed but with a big error picture in one of the tabs because we just don't have it's picture. Also, some B-Daman are the same in Hasbro and Tomy version; you can't tab those. Either you tab them all or tab none; seeing as we can't tab them all, we tab none. In actual fact, we're only supposed to display one picture, generally the Hasbro one gets priority over the Tomy version. Also if you're going to start adding tabs for each version, what about Sonokong versions? Or just alternative versions of the B-Daman itself? Take a look at Cobalt Blade's page at the long list under Other Versions. You want to start tabbing those? It would be ridiculous.
There's several ways. (Assuming you're in Visual Editor mode) The easiest is to select the text you want to add a link to, click on the little box with the underlined A symbol, click on Link in the drop-down menu. This makes a little box appear under the text you selected. Type in the page name you want to link to, and then click on the page when it appears in the drop-down menu. That'll add a link to the chosen page to your selected text.
You seem to know a quite bit about B-Daman, and I'd like some help. I have this B-Daman from Hasbro that appears to be Proto One but has a camoflauge design and a longer barrel. Do you know what it's name is? I haven't been able to find any info on it on the internet
Ah, that's a General Cammo! It's a Hasbro-exclusive Proto One variant, with a nod to Cammogale. I've been looking for a photo of this B-Daman for a long while now, because of that and also my lack of time, there's isn't an article for this B-Daman on the Wiki yet but you can see the link to it on the Battle B-Daman templates at the bottom of pages. It's one of the many articles I hope to get around to making and updating over time; would I be able to use your photo for the article?
That's ok, and a lot of people don't know that :P If you want to get Mana's attention you'll have to post directly on his wall rather than reply to a message left on yours. But judging by the last login dates of both Mana and Edboy3, they don't seem particularly active on the Wiki anymore, so I would contact them on the forums if you have an account there.
The reason why I thought that was mostly because of you name, also shadow ifraid half the time won't even let me make an edit I swear he doesn't even look at it and just clicks undo even if the information I backed up the informantion(which I always do when I edit) he just removes it even if all my grammer is correct and there is nothing wrong with the edit I made. When I edited Left=Starion that was because it said twice that it was a rapid fire type and it said it was a rapid fire type in trivia section which made no since so I removed it from the trivia he still undid the edit.
Sorry if it sounds rude but no it isnt in the right spot and the definition of trivia is information of little importance that is not well know, so even if it was it really doesn't matter since all you need to do is look at it to see that it looks like a proto 01. If it is about the head wouldn't it make more since if it was in the head part. Please explain to me why this is in the right spot and why it is important anyway.
Please don't take this personally, but your grammar and spelling aren't too great, so please don't try to edit articles to change that (I know I've had to go back and fix your mistakes regarding this). If it means a lot to you to get your spelling and grammar in check, use a Spell Checker on what you're intending to add to make sure it's ok. You can find one easily online by searching through Google. In particular, work on capitalization of proper nouns such as writing Cross Fire instead of cross fire or B-Daman instead of B-daman. Please also watch your formatting on the Wiki; make use of the Preview button to see that the page looks neat before publishing; this will also help you to see if you've left out/forgotten something.
Shadow's undo revision of WBMA Proto One page was correct; you removed relevant information there so I agree with his undo revision. No where else on the article is it written that Dragold's power dispersal is what lead to Proto Ones being able to talk, so it was wrong of you to have removed that information. His second edit to that page was also relevant as he was correcting your spelling.
Shadow's edits to Strike Swallow after yours are also very relevant; your writing was pretty bad here for the reasons I've already stated above. Take a look at the edits Shadow has made and learn from them rather than taking it as a personal attack. He makes good use of linking phrases in one article to other articles on the Wiki.
Shadow's undo revision on the Right=Drake page was correct; the information was valid, not anywhere else on the article and in the correct location. I have reverted your edit on this and hope that the nonsense on that page stops.
Your revised edits to Left=Starion are correct; the information in the trivia section is repeated and doesn't need to be present there. I will leave Shadow a message about this.
My point in all of this is not to take sides; I'm here to make sure the Wiki has good information that is presented in a neat manner. I'm also not here to continually mini-mod you and Shadow's behaviour; that's the job of a staff member so please contact Mana or Edboy3 on the forums. I'm talking to you as one member to another, asking for you to take a Wiki-etiquette approach to the whole situation; be friendly, flexible, focused on the task and work together to achieve our goals. Whenever someone, whether it be Shadow or anyone else, reverts an edit you have made, instead of taking it personally, take a look at what they've done and consider why they have done so. Always try and find a way to combine information, rather than take information from one person only. That's the whole point of a Wiki.
It's not my grammer it's my computer doesn't have spell check on it in the first place. I have never really been good at writing in school mostly because I always forget the check behind my self.I never removed anything about the reason the proto 01s started talking, infact I am the one who added that to the wiki, Shadow was the one who removed it not me. I am fine when shadow goes behind and edits to my grammer and spelling are right however, what I find as an attack is when he just completely removes it.
Trivia can mean unimportant facts or details or facts about people, events, etc., that are not well-known, yes. The Head part section is to talk about features of the head part specifically, such as does it have a horn for accuracy or some slot to attach something to it. You don't need to know that it's head piece looks like some other B-Daman's head in order to do well in a competition with it or even use it at all. To say that the head resembles some other B-Daman is not a specific piece of information about the head that people really need to know, it's an interesting but unimportant piece of information and so technically falls under the definition of trivia. For this reason, it belongs in the Trivia section and not in the Head section. Also, it's important in a sense because it's novel information not located anywhere else on the article and because not everyone might have seen the resemblance until someone points it out to them; I didn't see the resemblance till I read that. Keep in mind now that there are now 2 people who take this opinion about the matter; does everyone in the world have a problem or is it just you? Like I said before, please try and consider information people give to you rather than question their edits soley from your point of view.
"It's not my grammer it's my computer doesn't have spell check on it in the first place." Use a spell checker online as I previously suggested. Try reading my reply entirely before jumping on the defensive.
" I have never really been good at writing in school mostly because I always forget the check behind my self." That's ok! Like I previously said, take this opportunity to learn and grow from it. Now you know it's a good idea to learn to proofread what you write before you publish it.
"I never removed anything about the reason the proto 01s started talking, infact I am the one who added that to the wiki, Shadow was the one who removed it not me." My mistake, I'll change the article soon to reflect this.
"...what I find as an attack is when he just completely removes it." My whole point is that you shouldn't take anything personally; nothing should be seen as an attack to you. Just take a look at what he's doing and try to understand why instead of claiming it's a personal attack. Why not leave him a message on his wall and ask why he's making the edits that he is if you really can't understand? Just don't be so harsh on each other.
After further revision of the WBMA Proto One article, I don't feel I'm in the best position to make edits nor speak to either of you regarding the edit. As far as I was aware, Proto Ones started talking when Dragold was destroyed, not when Basara invaded the B-Crystal. I'll take this up with a senior member and get clarification on it. Either way, your edit to the page would have been incorrect; under your edit, Proto Ones starting talking when the crystal was invaded AND Dragold was destroyed, which is obviously not correct. Until I can get clarification on which event is correct, Shadow's edit still stands as the correct one.
If that's the case then why did you add the Proto Ones starting talking after Dragold was destroyed? Your current stand on it agrees with what Shadow has been trying to show to you this whole time by reverting your edits...
I didn't say that if and if I did then I typed it in by accident. However, I did edit and remove saying that Rudy's Proto 01 was " destroyed, rather disintegrated into sand" and just put down that Rudy's Proto 01 was disintegrated into sand because it makes more sense that way and it was disintegrated so it was still correct.
I'm pretty sure the B-Crystal and Dragold are separate entities; I recall some kind of backstory that Dragold (& possibly the other dragons too) helped bring the B-Crystal to Earth which gave it's power to B-Daman or something of the sort.
Even if they are two separate entities they said themselves that the reason was because of dragold's power being dispersed, now it is possible that some of dragold's power was residing in the B-Crystal and this power was released during the invasion, in fact this theory might have been backed up by due to a fact that a great power escaped the B-Crystal and that it was seaking someone strong. During the invasion a gold light came out of the B-Crystal and flew into a bunch of b-daman all of which started talking later and it is also possible that Dragold's B-animal was trapped inside the b-crystal.
You're jumping to far too many conclusion and honestly I'm getting rather tired of trying to be understanding. I just watched through Episode 13 and it doesn't mention anything about Proto Ones. In fact, what the episode was actually saying was Dragold's spirit was trapped within that B-Crystal, and was released alongside a different power which allows other B-Daman to now speak (although again, no mention of Proto Ones being able to speak and I know they had a strange exception of some sort to all this going on in Episode 13). The power referred to being released is both some power of the B-Crystal which is a separate entity to Dragold AND Dragold's spirit itself being released. I'm getting tired of your poor referencing to episodes which don't talk about much of what you take from it. I saw it happen when you referenced an episode in regards to the Smash Dragold article. I'm starting to see Shadow's frustration with you; you're very black and white and don't research things properly and expect us all to take your word for it and then claim we personally attack you when we try to correct your facts. I don't wish to continue this conversation anymore; I've already referred to 2 other senior members about the matter and I'll see what they have to say to me when they get back to my message and they will be able to help edit the article accordingly.
Nothing about the Proto 01's come in intill episode 14 and nothing about anything of dragold's power being dispursed intill 24 you don't need to see all of it just the end to hear them say it that is it weither you watch it or not to hear them say it is up to you I am done for the night I understand you live in new zealand where it is might might b like 1 pm but I live in america where it is 3 am
Well I confirmed with another member that Proto 01s as well as other B-Daman were able to speak after the B-Crystal's energy was released and then all B-Daman got their B-Animals restored when Dragold was defeated. The B-Crystal and Dragold are different entities; the B-Crystal is what Dragold was sealed inside of. But yeah, if you feel that leaving is necessary, then by all means.
Hi, i'm Ari Cocodoro, i saw that you were one of the few people to still edit this sight, so, yeah.
I don't really specialize, but, i guess i specialise in Crossfight B-daman being Alba's sister, i know quite a bit about B-daman's history, and thanks to the other B-daman series, i know even more, even if some info doesn't add up.
I have a Chrome Raven, looks like Chrome Zephyr, (but i still call him Zephyr for some reason) but he has rollers in his core and a one-ganded grip with wings. He was one of the last 7 in the shop, and i was lucky enough to grab him when i did.
So, if you've got any pointers and stuff, can you give me some advise?
N-Nothing much, i just needed to specify, and since no one is ever online here when i am, i just neevev to know that this site wasn't dying. B-daman is a big part of my life. Growing up in Sauzu, it's a big part of everyone's lives.
That's ok, I'm always glad to help out ^_^ Though I'm not sure B-Daman roleplaying is appropriate on the Wiki, it's quite a formal place. If you have a Deviantart account, you could join and post on my B-Daman group page and I'm sure some others will join in with you there: http://the-b-daman-lobby.deviantart.com/
-- NO MORE replies please 1Risingdracyan1 or Shadow=Ifraid! You two are literally antagonizing each other and being just as bad as one another. Honestly I don't care for petty arguments online, but I do when they're on my wall and I have nothing to do with it. BOTH OF YOU can take it up with Mana or Edboy3 and BOTH OF YOU can stop replying to this thread, which had nothing to do with either of you to begin with!
@Dreamergirl3000: If you want to keep chatting to me here, that's fine. If you want to chat to Shadow, please do so on their wall. If you want to chat to Rising, please do so on their wall. Don't keep encouraging them to talk here as it's just going to end in more arguing. Thanks~
Ok then, also, have any of you heard word that they're making an english dub Crossfight B-daman eS/Fireblast? It'll be out soon, my friend says, and in November in my country, there's a tournament, and the winner gets, uh, i can't remember, but it's an awesome b-daman from eS with a metal core and golden/bronze/silver colors for all i know!
Omg you are so lucky!!! I would love nothing more than to live in a country where they hosted tournaments! I hope I can find one of those prize B-Daman for sale later~ We don't even get the anime aired on TV here let alone any products sold in stores :(
Wow, what country do you even LIVE in?!? Our country has been in a political war against China for the past 20 years or so, we're 3rd world, yet we have Animax, Crossfight b-daman on Disney XD, original B-daman in our shops, and we even have counterfights at the small toy shops! Your life must be so sad!
New Zealand; a first-world country but also a very small island where nothing much from overseas gets brought to us. The only big franchise still going here is Beyblades. Yeah it is very sad :(
Hmm I've never really seen people posting Fanfic on the Wiki, if you did you would have to do it as blog posts on your profile. I think you would get a lot more attention for something like that on Deviantart, considering it's a website for showcasing arts and literature, you'll have a guaranteed audience to appeal to there. That's why I linked you to a B-Daman group on Deviantart earlier who might be able to help with that (http://the-b-daman-lobby.deviantart.com/).
That's a shame :/ Give it a go posting it as blogs on the Wiki, it might take off anyway!
Apparently B-Daman don't sell as well as Beyblade do, which isn't much of a surprise considering how much bigger the Beyblade franchise is than B-Daman. Sadly it doesn't matter if they're made by the same company, the franchises themselves are still considered separately.
Oh yeah, did i mention the in our country, b-daman is being cleared out? They're just selling stock they still had, not new stock, but i heard word from one of my sorces that we're gearing up for eS, that's why, but it's sure taking long. :/
I might post the story, but it'll be hard to understand since the girls i paired with them aren't girls from the series, so yeah, i might just rewrite it and post it. Lol. :P
Yeah, i hope you get some, soon. I mean, you have to get some eventually, right? If your a collage student, it can't be all study and work, you gotta have some childish time to yourself, and what better a way that running around with a b-daman asking pepole to battle you?
Seriously, wheni get to collage, i'm going to do that. Lol :P
They're never going to bring B-Daman back into my country, but of course I have 'childish time' to myself, I don't think it's childish though :P I get all of my B-Daman online anyway so it doesn't really prove a problem to me, although I don't have anyone to battle. And yeah you definitely need to keep your favourite hobbies alive while at college/university, the work load there can really drive you insane sometimes!! What do you hope to study at college?
I wanna study at a collage called UP in the Philippines, where my parents studied, and if not, i'll study abroad, or at Ateneo or something, the possibulities are endless, but one thing's for sure, i am taking litterature in collage. I'm a JR writer and everyone tells me to work on it. :) They i'll be the next writer of the next most amazing anime or book ever~! Woohoo!
Also, once the refined version of my story is done, i'll send it to Takara Tomy and Tokyo TV and stuff and see if they'll consider making it the Crossfight b-daman series movie. It's real cool, they turn half human!
Hint: THe reason is the dude who started the GP series. ;)
Sadly I have no idea; I didn't even know what it was re-coloured to until Edboy told me when I showed him that photo. I would have loved to have won the auction it was a part of though so I could add more photos and info >__< But while that auction was going on, there was an Iron Black Cobalt Blade going and I ended up putting more effort into that :P
I'm inclined to think it's a limited edition model. Contest prizes usually have a white box of some sort (even if it has a picture on the front) and the box also resembles the box style for Cobalt Sword's clear blue version.
I saw your comment in the Spike=Phoenix page and I totally agree with you on the difference between the two often-confused terms.
[http:// I took this photo a long time ago] and I know this is a photo depicting Bakugan but the horn parts can be great examples to depict the difference between Chromed (Japanese: メッキ Mekki) and Metallic (Japanese: メタリーク Metariku) just in case someone asks for an actual example. ^_^ Actually when someone asks me about it, I give them that photo.
Although, I'll be honest...I haven't exactly seen a Metallic B-Daman yet. However, compared to the Battle B-Daman series, Cross Fight B-Daman have a distinct grainy feel in their coloring when you look closely. It sort of makes them resemble some Shampoo's lather.
An example of a Chromed one, however, is the Rev=Dracyan and the Round=Drazeros. Another paint type which was not usually used is the High-Gloss (if that's what its called) or the paint applied to the core of Accele=Bearga.
Haha when I saw the title in my email inbox, I thought someone was having a hissy fit at me and was gonna tell me they're the same thing. This post has made my day :3 That's a really good comparison photo, thanks for that!
Yeah I haven't seen many metallic B-Daman myself, the only one I can think of off the top of my head is Accel Leon's silver armour, seeing as silver and gold paints are generally lobbed in the metallics family (although not always the case). I bought a mixed lot of B-Damans from someone a while back and there is a blackish/browny IBA body that's metallic style. You can see the little specks of light/glitter in the plastic and paint. That said, I have many B-Daman I've custom painted with metallic paints so I should nab a comparison photo from them too. Are there any B-Daman that have pearly armour? That's use of metallic white paint.
I think that's the easiest way to explain the difference; metallic is paint that is sparkly or glimmery in a way, and chrome is just wow can you make that any shinier (I love chrome so much XD).
Yeah I think it's called High Gloss paint, that's what I know it as, and it's opposer, Matte paint. I'm generally more of fan of working with matte paint because of high gloss's sticky feeling when you're touching the parts but that's just me :P Also, this is a great pic of metallic purple paint example.
EDIT: I have a preliminary photo of my finished Royal Saber for you. I just finished it, and it's dark outside so I can't take good photos, so some smaller details are missing e.g. you can kiiiinda see the red strip on his black ears. But I'm just glad he's finally done :D
I didn't think about a blue and silver combo, that would look nice actually! Not sure what character I would end up doing though, I'm not a big fan of Chrome Levan. Either way I'll add it to my future customs list; at this stage, I have 4 other customs I'm working on so I want to get those done first :P
