Wow, last week our wiki task theme was Fairy Tail and what a great job you guys did.  Special shout out to  takashichea,    buhssuht and annabanana who really cleaned up.  Based off your suggestions I picked  Beelzebub, D.Gray-Man and Shaman King for this week's theme.  We have a great start on all these franchises and i bet if we focus on them for a week we could get them to the same caliber as our Fairy Tail articles. Gotta tell you guys, I'm very impressed with the quality of our wiki pages and the amount of tasks that were completed last week.

Congrats to the team!
Man, I am not consistent like I was hammering on those Fairy Tail bounties. I only have two more weeks left before I'm free.

Hey Ethan, I appreciate that you open those Shaman King character tasks. I know it's kind of late, but can you postpone them after May 20th? I am rushing these bounties because its looks bad if I neglect them. Besides that, I don't think the old users are coming to finish what they started on those character pages.
 I live by a cruel philosophy of my dad. "Finish what you start." I admit that I am a inconsistent hypocrite when applying these ideals on wiki.
In due time, I finish the Shaman King project.
I will finish the "Manta, Bason, and Horohoro" tasks that were already open. You have my word.

Wow, a trifectaof sorts.Three series I know little to nothing about.  I hope these tasks go over well.

Still, great work on the Fairy Tail quests. Really great work. Nice to know I'm not the only person going wild in the wiki. Would be nice to see the Data Porn for Anime Vice and see the points earned by users.

@takashichea:
I like finishing what I start as well, but I undertake insane tasks, such as the formatting of the One Piece episode pages. That's nearly 500 episodes, now. Also, check out the first 15 episodes of Naruto Shippuden. I've been dabbling in that series, too. I formatted part of the Itachi Pursuit Arc and the Five Kage Summit Arc.

I checked out my wiki points total. I was rather shocked to see I'm in the 490K range.

@FoxxFireArt: Data porn coming today.   Yah Fairy Tail theme has been our best so far.

@takashichea: I wont add any more Shaman King to the task queue for now.  The wiki will always be evolving so no worries if people dont finish an article, someone else will chip in eventually, right?

even though i watched/read all three series, i feel like it's gonna be harder than fairy tail mainly because they been around longer than fairy tail, also the stories are kinda confusing, especially shaman king.
still, i'll try my best on those along with the plot summaries task. hopefully i can do a good job on it since i dont know how the 'good' plot summary is suppose be look like.

I know there are great examples here on AV and CV.  But I often point people to this one on Screened.com for Avatar

@FoxxFireArt:
Thank you, but you should give a big congratulations to Anna. Due to these reasons below:

 

You should note that AnnaBanana had the most bounties done than me. She's the better wiki writer for character pages. For me, my specialty is in episode and volume wikis.

 My writing skill is of a nine grader. I still remember your comment on Sieg Hart's summary that I need to write clearer and consise.

Things have change since 7 months ago.

Comparisons

I seen your one piece work on the characters and the episodes and it blows me away. My shaman king project which is mostly episode and volume wiki pales in comparison to your One Piece. I can't catch up to you since I'm doing a episode and volume a week. (Right now I'm stopping the anime due to school, but I have volumes 14-17 notes left)

Best work is volume 12 of shaman king and for episodes: Fairy Tail ep.  41   and Shaman King ep 16.


Edit: Add this since May 7, 2011

Purpose and Thanks to the People

This is to highlight the best work I have done. I am not gloating but is to show the passion of a dedicated fan. Anime Vice needs more people to get working on the wikis. I using these examples to attract more people. It's thanks to Ethan and FoxxFireArt for helping me. FoxxFireArt has really help me by providing examples to show what a good wiki page looks like.

I also thank Anna because without her and her passion in Fairy Tail, I would not keep editing wikis. This is a hobby that I will keep while being in college. It keeps me sane (for the most parts)

 

*HTML since the link button does not work

 Edit: I linked them.

 

@ethan:
Thanks Ethan. I will work on the wiki style for the Shaman King characters after finishing the anime and manga part of the project.

A while ago I put some reading time into D. Grayman and Shaman King but they were just some more shounen series that suffer from  holding style above substance.  God bless whoever is tackling these tasks because I don't think either show is particularly good.

The link button still works if you use your mouse to highlight the word you want linked.  The link icon no longer becomes active when you use the key board to highlight a word though.

@ethan: 
I added links. It was the college's computer fault. My college's library computers disable most of Anime Vice's functions.

@Mezmero:


Thanks for the blessings. I am working on Shaman King because I like the series. For D. Gray man, it's aim at audiences who enjoy a realistic war on good vs. evil. By "realistic," I mean a lot of good, neutral, and bad guys die a lot. There is some comedic moments to take off the tension, but there are some twisted scenes. How evil is always adaptive and the good guys will never have a break.

Edit: About the torture part, I guess the most hard thing for completing the Shaman King project is the anime/manga differences and the dialogue change between sub and dub, and the censorships between sub and dub. I don't know why I'm doing this, but I just wanted to add something interesting besides plot summaries.
For Fairy Tail, the only thing I can add is "Points of Interests" while Anna adds anime/manga differences because she reads the manga, but I don't.


@FoxxFireArt:
You should try Beelzebub. It's about a delinquent who is chosen to raise a baby of a demon king. There are some innuendos. Since I know you are sensitive about censorships, the only thing I remember is that the manga has guns but the anime does not.

A quick question. How do I add this actress table to the character page? I wanted to add actors or actresses to the Shaman King characters. LIke adding Yuuji Ueda to Horohoro's page.
See this picture for an example. I play with the edit button and I guess I can't touch the table.

@takashichea: You should be able to do that from the movie or episode page, then it just displays on the character page.

@ethan:
Oh I see. Then I have to add that person in the database first, and add that on the episode page. Viola, it appears! It sounds simple.
Seven months, I still don't know my way around on anime vice.

@buhssuht:
I agreed with you. I never finished D. Gray Man, but I read it a long time ago.
Darn, I wished I had more time or better time management because I am in the last two weeks of school. I try to finish some D. Gray Man bounties because it was me who  suggest it.

Edit: It was my fault because most people are in school right now. Some colleges are finish earlier than the others, and the high schools and middle schools are not done yet until the end of June. (I know some hard working wiki editors are in high school and middle school) I doing this because I am older and supposed to be a role model for them.

Thanks guys for working on these.... I'm moving the theme to "RANDOM".   Finding random series and characters that don't have article yet, but that Pinchuk or you guys talk about.
