Hi, I just removed the wildcard directions for this pinata. Is this something I should be doing with every page? I shall continue with doing that as I come across it in other pages. Thanks. --ImaTestWentBad 17:35, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes. I'll explain the history, so you are familiar with how things came to pass. Before TiP was released, we made some guesses as to how the game worked, in order to have articles setup by release, ready to fill in. One of the guesses was that the wildcard requirements were different for each species. So, because we though we'd have to provide species-specific details on each species page, we had a "Collect all hearts in n seconds, ..." types of details, ready to be filled in.
After the game came out, it became clear that the methods were general. The nn seconds lines should have just been removed. Before that happened, someone else made changes to those lines and replaced them with the general methods, so it simply became something differently-worded to remove. A species article's wildcard table is just meant to show species-specific details, i.e., images and traits. --FeralKitty (talk) 20:07, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
