I will give opinions on anything

A complete list of new shorthand terms for Yu-Gi-Oh!

23 May 2017 - 02:22 PM

With life points already LP, and the graveyard soon to be the GY, it is clear that card texts must be shortened at all costs. In this spirit, I have taken time from my blank schedule to compile a list of further changes that could easily be incorporated, to improve the flow of the game. Less time reading, more time dueruing! The changes are ordered (almost) alphabetically, so they can be read as efficiently as they will make reading cards.


banish - bn

Battle - B

battle - b

card - c

coin flip - cf

column - cn

detach - d

destroy - dy

dice - ?

discard - di

draw - !

Effect - E

effect - e

Extra Deck - ED

Extra Monster Zone - EMZ

Fusion - F

face-up - fu

face-down - fd

field - f

hand - h

Link - L

Main - M

Main Deck - MD

Main Monster Zone - MMZ

material - ml

monster - m

negate - n

Normal - N

opponent - o

owner - ow

Once per turn - OPT

Pendulum - Pm

Phase - P

player - p

quick effect - qe

return - r

Ritual - R

scale - sc

Special Summon - SS

Summon - S

Spell & Trap Zone - STZ

Spell/Trap Card - S/T

Synchro - Sy

target - t

tuner - tu

turn - tn

unaffected - u

Xyz - X


Polaris' compendium of types and attributes:

Shadowliepard's neo-new improved shorthand:


2 or more -> 2+
and -> &
cannot -> can't
maximum -> max
number -> #
attack -> atk
per -> /
equals -> =
or -> /
activation -> act
Giga's submission:
References within a card's text to it's own name is represented by ~ 


What will follow is a few well known cards, with their text optimised. Notice how easily recognisable they are! Proof that this system is foolproof, as if it were needed.


! 2 cs.


T 1 m on the f; r that t to the h.


D all ms on the f.


Di 1 c: t up to 2 S/Ts on the f; dy them. 


1 Tu Sy M + 2+ non-Tu Sy Ms

Must be Sy Sd & can't be SSd by other ways. This c's max # of atks/B P = the # of non-Tu ms used as its Sy Ml. OPT, when a c/e is act (QE): You can n the act, & if you do, dy it. When this c leaves the f: You can SS 1 "Shooting Star Dragon" from your ED.


If I have missed out any relevant terms or phrases, let me know and I will update the list!


You're welcome Konami.

Delete the cardmaker

20 May 2017 - 06:12 PM

I think we can all agree that YCMaker is literal trash, and I think we all recognise that as long as he has money coming in from here he won't do any actual administrating. So delete the cardmaker and remove his income. Don't know how much access you have to the code but do whatever to fuck it up or better yet, see if ye can prevent ads running on it. It's pretty pathetic as a thing for making cards anyway being 2 generations behind the game, so it won't be missed by anyone with a genuine interest in making their own cards as they'll have TCGeditor or Photoshop or Gimp or whatever.


When YCMaker realises no money is flowing to him for nothing each week/month, he will have to come back here to find out what is going on, and we can hold him to ransom. Tell him there was a virus or something, I don't know. Open the path for Tormy or someone to buy the (now worthless) site so we can have a proper admin and a functioning site, undoing whatever damage was done to initiate this (probably important to ensure that whatever is done is reversible, but not obvious enough he'd figure it out himself; not sure what this would constitute but this is just an outline of a plan).


This is the final solution.

Dimensional Barrier

19 May 2017 - 02:51 PM



Declare 1 monster card type (Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, or Pendulum); for the rest of this turn, neither player can Special Summon monsters of the declared type, also negate the effects of all monsters of that type while they are on the field. You can only activate 1 "Dimensional Barrier" per turn.


A fun card that we all love which should never have been printed and should go away forever. Discuss tbh imo.

SwagCompton98 touched me!

18 May 2017 - 05:45 PM

Yes, it's true. He touched my heart, and the hearts of many others, with his deeply emotional poetry. His way with words is truly a gift, and I would like to take this opportunity to dedicate a thread to YCM's foremost wordsmith. The following is an exert from his 90-verse epic, "The Spirit of Swag; or, the Conquest of Niggas", translated from the original Greek:


"feeling grim enjoying life not trying to fight ight just dueling teaching these fools a schooling before they start drooling but in a sense do n't take offense of this cuz once I needed schooling in the way of dueling so calm down get ya game on life points set to eight thousand roundup your cards and get on guard cuz it 's dog eat dog world but hey today you better pray I do n't summon that dragon and your ass would be dragging behind streamline BOOM duel is over do n't be a poser free loafer now im filled with rage as i write these lycris on this page oh well i could tell you never liked me so just bite me fuck you bitch your nothing but a witch why do i feel like this oh wait you took my heart and torn it apart damn im pissed but i wished i would have met you now imma bet against every single thing guess i should have pulled that ring let the bomb explode. Why tell me why i feel all this rage someone lock me up in a cage quick before i go a kick down that door im head stright to my core".
