Replace "Season 3 international song videos" with "Equestria Girls international song videos" on appropriate files, please. It just doesn't make sense currently. Vengir (talk) 11:06, November 23, 2013 (UTC)

Crystal Empire images

The Crystal Empire/Gallery needs to have all of its images in the Crystal Empire images category. -- Ozuzanna (Talk) 12:52, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

Please wait for Forum:Location gallery requirements to conclude before doing this. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 13:33, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

Done. There seems to be a glitch in the system where some of the old categories still list them in that category despite the new category replacing them, but it shouldn't matter much. B0lGGoQ.gifOz   09:12, May 17, 2014 (UTC)

Images categories and nameconvert

Add the following characters' gallery images to their respective image categories:

Also, maybe run the episode nameconvert thing now that we have all the episode titles. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 15:18, May 7, 2014 (UTC)

I've done the adding gallery images to their respective categories. B0lGGoQ.gifOz   09:50, May 17, 2014 (UTC)

Also replace redirects (Castle-Mania; Pinky Apple Pie; Three's a Crowd; Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3; Trade Ya; any others). (7)6(four) (talk) 03:37, March 14, 2015 (UTC)
Sorry about that, I was supposed to replace those years ago. You don't need to enumerate the list, AWB has a function to substitute templates (thankfully its internal function can do a full recursive substitution). Anyway, both parts done. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 20:06, March 14, 2015 (UTC)

Diamond Mint article now exists again. (7)6(four) (talk) 01:01, December 19, 2013 (UTC)



Hello, there seems to be a commotion over wether to rename "bog"/"Bog" to "Bogg" or the contrary – regardless of capitalization. please replace one instance by the other in the appropriate case – and I have no clue which is, just know I saw a reversion of both, and the search results are richer for "Bogg", while there are two apparently correct instances of "the bog" in articles. Thanks,  Drakep6yPvD4.png  11:07, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

I think it's "Bogg" in official material, I'll look it up. –Throwy 13:25, June 7, 2013 (UTC)

Crystal Ponies

Hello, it seems that "Crystal Pony" or "Crystal Ponies" appears to have a capitalized P; it may be good to add a correction from "crystal pony", "crystal ponies", "Crystal pony" and "Crystal ponies" to the official case. Thanks,  Drakep6yPvD4.png  11:41, June 7, 2013 (UTC)


Hello, it seems that both the "Minor", minor", "Major" and "major" are found in the mainspace, after the word "Ursa"; might be worth checking plural too. What is the official capitalization ? Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  21:03, June 9, 2013 (UTC) Also, both "Ursa and "ursa" seem to be used, independently from ponctuation. Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  23:15, June 9, 2013 (UTC)

Foreign terms

Discussed but unfinished, here; Should we use the term "protégée" (n.f.) or "protégé" (n.m.) for Twilight Sparkle, given the latter is technically incorrect due to her being femal ? Furthermore, would this term be deemed sufficiently integrated in the english language to avoid a {{lang}} or italics, or not ? I personally used "protégée", without ", but it seems the other way is more used by other contributors. Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  18:59, June 23, 2013 (UTC)

Galleries' season sectioning

On galleries that have them, turn "Season [one/1/One/two/2/Two/three/3/Three/four/4/Four]" sections into subsections of parent "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic". (7)6(four) (talk) 09:22, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

I dunno if that's necessary...since the show is the main focus of the wiki, I think it's fine to leave each season as a level-two heading, and any other media as another one. If we did this there would be two levels of empty sections for each episode, and that seems a little much. But I suppose if there's agreement on this I can figure out some AWB regex for it. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 20:55, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Future seasons placeholders

For the task |26 → |[[{{nameconvert|4|26}}|26]] , maybe go through all the pages that use placeholder names for S4 instead of just the main 6 ? For example this one was excluded, among others. Thanks —  Drakep6yPvD4.png  23:25, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

There's no easy way to find all of those, I'm not gonna wait around for AWB to go through up to 380,000 pages running regex on every one. It's fine to have a few of them, I just wanted to set all of the appearances ones. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 02:10, December 6, 2013 (UTC)
I understand you second point, and agree. Concerning the search, if a page contains "season" and "four" on the same line, and then somewhere |7 (for example) instead of |7]], then it could qualify ? It is not something with numerous pages, so it could submit a succinct list of results found to confirm before pressing the red button, I suppose ? Thanks —  Drakep6yPvD4.png  22:16, December 6, 2013 (UTC)
