I would like to know any ideas you have on improving the wiki. Is the theme making content unreadable? Are the infobox templates poorly implemented, or need a new theme? Do we need a new format for displaying classes in the Disgaea series? Does there need to be a new rule added to the wiki?
What's on your mind?
Hello, I've started going onto the Japanese disgaea 6 website and I've noticed there's some good info in Japanese the American website doesn't have yet, like character bios, info on some new classes, and an explanation of the super reincarnation system. if you can read Japanese, it could be very helpful for us if you could check it out and update the page accordingly
So Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny has been announced today, and one of the new features in the game is that it has 3D models for characters. This could break consistency with articles on the wiki, as they used 2D sprite textures for pages. How will we handle this change in character appearance on the wiki?
It appears that the existing administrators of the wiki have not been active in the last six to twelve months. We may need new administrators to manage the wiki, or get the existing ones to become active again or at least give other users admin privileges.
Do you think we should allow someone to adopt this wiki using the forum at https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Adoption:Requests to give admin privileges to a new person? Should we get the existing admins, Ken.nihart, Yuanchosaan, and Otherarrow, to give others admin privileges? Or should we just get some of them to become active contributors of the wiki again?
With Disgaea 6 appearing on the horizon, action should be taken now to reinforce standards for the new pages that will inevitably be created due to the release of a brand new game with all new characters, new stages, returning and possibly new classes, and likely new mechanics such as Super Reincarnation. In addition, unlike normal users, administrators can delete pages, protect pages, block users, modify the site theme and navigation bars, and do many more actions as well. As such, having at least one active administrator is a big boost to the management of the wiki. That is why I'm trying to get an administrator available again in the form of existing ones becoming active or establishing other users as administrators.
I suggest you reply to this thread before October 1, 2020. Replying before then will make your response more likely to impact the outcome of this discussion.
Hi, I was trying to update the sprite for Taro once I noticed that the image was quite compressed. After pulling up the sprite and editing the .gif to use an uncompressed version of the original sprite, then re-uploading, I realized the wiki had compressed my image, which I assume is because of the .gif extension. With the image still open in my image editor, I saved the same image to my disk as a .png, and it actually is smaller like that (939 bytes PNG vs. 1,322 bytes GIF), even before running it through PNGauntlet. Is there a specific reason for the sprite images being uploaded as .gifs or am I free to re-upload sprites as .png for smaller filesize and (hopefully) better quality?
so apparently trough the multiplayer in Makai Senki Disgaea Portable: Tsuushin Taisen Hajime Mashita(psp digaea 1 japanese only re-relaese) you can get asagi as a doll(like you could with prism ranger red, but even more battle points, i do not know how many) and there was also something about baal, but i can't remember what it was, can anyone confirm?
The Unified Community Platform (UCP) is a new wiki platform running MediaWiki 1.33. All Fandom wikis (including the Disgaea Wiki) and all Gamepedia wikis, which currently run on separate platforms, will eventually live on the UCP and use the same underlying technology.
"Fandom's legacy platform is running a much older and heavily customized version of MediaWiki. All the custom features Fandom added over the years, such as Message Walls, threaded Forums, Chat, Achievements, the Admin Dashboard, Special:WikiActivity and many more, made it nearly impossible for Fandom to update to a newer version of MediaWiki. That meant losing out on lots of improvements and new features developed by the Wikimedia Foundation that come natively with newer MediaWiki versions.
After Fandom and Gamepedia joined forces in 2019, we finally decided that it was time to untangle Fandom's complex and heavily customized platform, remove or replace outdated features and unite all the wikis in our network on a single platform running an up-to-date version of MediaWiki. This will give Fandom users access to newer and better MediaWiki features and Gamepedia users access to features that were previously only available on Fandom. Our development teams will no longer have to maintain two separate platforms, one of which is heavily outdated, and are instead able to focus on building new features for our users."
The UCP migration will change some elements of this wiki. To learn more about UCP, check out Help:Unified_Community_Platform on Community Central.
What do you think of the UCP so far?
And I was wondering what units should i place into my party?
How should we apply categories to classes? I want to make it consistent across all class pages.
Should we apply the Humanoid Classes and Monster Classes categories to the main page for each class, the game specific pages for each class, or both?
Should we apply the Disgaea (game number) Classes categories to the main page for each class, or only for the game specific pages for each class, or do it for both?
I want to know your opinion on this.

So you know how all the sprites for the Weapons are in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, right?
...Not all of them? Well, I found these on The Spriters Resource that are for the game. Notice that there are not ripped by me, since I got them from the forementioned site itself. You'll also notice that the weapons have different colors as well. They are ordered from left to right: Common, Rare, and Legendary. The sprite next to the, let's say Common Sword, it's a modified, yet, higher rank sword.
Another example is the Light Saber on the bottom right of the whole arsenal (not the monochrome ones at the bottom). Next to it is the Yoshitsuna, the 'evolved' form if you will of the former. Here are the sprites ripped by CrimsonPenguin (if he has an account on here, I hope e doesn't mind if I show these without his permission)
Bows (note the sprite similar next to the one you see is an animated version)
I hope this was useful information for all of you! Post the sprites in the list of the weapons for the game! Add their three sprite versions of 'em, too!
Has anyone done this? The La Pucelle: Tactics article here is an overview and I imagine mods do not want data for that game cluttering this project. Could not find one in a search. Pucelle.wikia would be interesting. Lots of cool guides like https://www.gamefaqs.com/ps2/566126-la-pucelle-tactics/faqs/37307 have data we could adapt there.
Whatever pronect should be linked from this wiki's article and vice versa.
Was reading https://www.gamefaqs.com/ps2/589678-disgaea-hour-of-darkness/faqs/25989 and it mentions to maximize attack on an item you must subdue all specialists and fill it with gladiators before killing level 10 item general.
Can anyone verify if specialist presence on an item matters on the 10th levels? Guides say many things and it would be good to have alltheir discoveries here if they are verifiable.
I did not have this in mind when leveling my stuff. I kept the item i was leveling empty so i could use the specialists to keep my character stronger.
If slotted specialists matter, which ones do? Somepl properties like poison probably cannot transfer...
Does level of specialists matter or would 13 slots filled with level 1 gladiators be same as 13 slots filled wkth level 1000 gladiators?
Does anyone know where to find the area map images for the other Disgaea games. We have really nice map images for D1, but nothing for the other games. I've been googling a bit, to see if I can find them, but the only really nice ones I can find, are the D1 images already here on the wiki. So I was wondering where the D1 area maps came from, and if we could find the same for the later games.
It's not problem for me to put in the work to upload all the images. I just don't know where to find them.
Thanks for the help.
I've been experimenting with disgaeamapsinfobox template to see if there is way to make the already great template even better. I had this silly idea that it might be nice to have the information on Etna mode in a another tab. When a stage has an Etna mode counterpart, the infobox can get kind of crowded (example: Valgipus IV.) It's not dramatic, but I think less is more in some cases. And using a tabber for splitting out the Main story and Etna mode, seemed like a good idea.
Anyway, I created the sandbox page and got on with the experimenting. Template:DisgaeaMapInfobox/sandbox
The idea was to have Etna mode on a tabber, but the Etna mode tab should only be visible if and when there is any data to display. I'm not that good with coding so I knew this could take awhile :) But after a while, I started to wonder if this was even possible. It is! I found examples on another wiki but I'm unable to use the coding on our current template. I'm struggling with getting the if-function to work on the tabber and inserting the tabber without messing with the parameters.
This is the site with the examples: http://videogameresource.wikia.com/wiki/User:Sovq
Any help is appreciated. If we could get this to work, we could easily add more hidden tabs, like Dark World, Axel mode,...
