    • The {{urlencode:}} parser function actually substitutes spaces with "+" instead of "_", but clicking the link still takes you to the right page (a redirect?). - Esjs(Talk) 22:48, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
      • Even better. Now we only need to convince someone to set the bot to work. MauserComlink 23:49, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
        • Looks good. We need to keep those links working. -- Riffsyphon1024 07:01, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
          • I've been holding off on suggesting this because the SWCCGPC has been saying that "We're currently working on a robust database for all of the SWCCG rules and cards," and I didn't want us to have to redo the template YET AGAIN after they performed that database update. But they've had that message up for so long now, that improvement may well be vaporware, so yes, it's definitely time to go through with this. jSarek 08:41, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
  • I think it would actually be a good idea to maintain the links to Decipher/ in the template even if they're not parsed or displayed. The legacy URLs will be useful if anyone ever sets up a proper mirror of the Decipher site, and will serve to validate card filenames against local copies maintained by certain oddballs who downloaded the whole archive before the site died (me, Trip, a few others) since people will undoubtedly try to add links to the stupid "virtual sets" if we do link the SWCCGPC. I'm just not sure how we would go about keeping both the old URL and the new format. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 13:24, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
    • Yes it's a good idea. So good that I emailed them months ago after we discussed this on IRC to ask if they'd be happy for us to link to them. Nobody replied so I didn't take it any further. Green Tentacle (Talk) 18:39, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

So, can we just get this thing moving? If we use Esjs's version and just change the name of the first field, we won't even have to run a bot: all links would be working automatically! MauserComlink 23:17, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Yeah, I say go for it. If the SWCCGPC ever gets around to doing that update, it won't kill us to update the templates a second time. jSarek 09:24, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
    • Done. If anything is wrong, please report here. MauserComlink 09:42, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
      • It was having issues if the card name was italicized (e.g. Independence) since the apostrophes were getting included in the URL. Should be fixed now, but let me know if I broke anything else in the process. Green Tentacle (Talk) 18:35, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Okay, here's another idea. Let's say I have all card images from Jedi Knights Trading Card Game and Young Jedi Collectible Card Game. If I set a small crappy website that will have nothing but those images so that we could properly link to them, you think that would qualify as fair use? MauserComlink 06:13, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Admittedly, I'm very unclear as to what constitutes "fair use". If you have the images, why not upload them to WP? If that is not an option (please explain), could you create a Wikia for JKTCG and/or YJCCG? That way you could follow the example of the "database". If all else fails, I don't see a problem with your initial suggestion, but again I'm not clear on the rules of fair use. - Esjs(Talk) 15:43, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
    • Uploading all 800+ card images to Wookieepedia serves no point, what we need is a working template that could link to them for verification. Unfortunately, creating a wiki (even a crappy) one from scratch is not an easy thing, as it's very different from editing a wiki with established formatting and templates. If anyone would like to help, I'm all too willing to try though. MauserComlink 14:29, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
      • Actually, I think it would be far more likely to be regarded as fair use if they were hosted here (where they would be subject to commentary and analysis) than if they were all alone on their own wiki. That said, I think we'd have to realistically have a large-scale program of commenting or analyzing each card (perhaps in their respective set articles) to truly be Fair Use in that regard. For more on Fair Use, Wikipedia has a pretty good article on the topic. jSarek 22:31, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
