Pages to Combine

Wiki pages I plan on combining, mostly because lots of pages would make more sense as sections on other pages. Having separate pages for things like student and school uniform is unnecessary. If a student appears in an episode wearing a school uniform, add the student concept page, if someone cosplays in a school uniform, add the cosplay concept page.

Lots of object pages in the wiki are WAY too general. Object pages should be specific to anime and manga, like Poké Ball, Dragon Balls, Senzu Bean, Zabimaru, Yui Hirasawa's Guitar, Saeko Busujima's Katana, Natsu Dragneel's Scarf and so on. Objects that are significant and are worth writing about (half of those pages don't exist, but they should). We shouldn't have pages for Glasses, Skirts and Cell Phones. These are things that will appear in countless episodes and can be read about in way better detail on wikipedia anyway. We don't need to know how many anime episodes glasses appear in, that's completely useless information.

I'm tired of seeing wiki pages that are clearly just image galleries or lists of characters. If you want to make a gallery or a list, that's exactly what the gallery and list functions on your profile page are for.

We should take a page or two from Comic Vine's book. If you look at the list of objects on that site, it's all very specific, it's clearly a wiki about comics. Anime Vice is a wiki about anime and manga, and it should look more like one.

1. Students
2. School Uniform

^ Move to the Student page. Mention on the cosplay page.

3. Gym Uniform

^ Move to the Student page. Mention on the cosplay page.

4. Nurses
5. Nurse Uniform

^ Move to the Nurse page. Mention on the cosplay page.

6. Yuri
7. Lesbian Characters

^ Combine with Yuri.

8. Yaoi
9. Gay Characters

^ Combine with Yaoi.

10. Transformation
11. Tropes And Transformations

^ Combine with Transformation.

12. Henshin

^ Combine with Transformation.

13. Ninjas
14. Female Ninjas

^ Move to the Ninja page. While female Ninjas may be considerably different in a lot of cases, there's no need for separate pages.

15. Christmas
16. Santa Costume

^ Move to the Christmas page. Mention on the cosplay page.

17. Bunny Girl
18. Bunny Suit

^ Move to the Bunny Girl page. Mention on the cosplay page.

19. Magic
20. Spellcasters

^ Move to the Magic page.

21. Japanese Festival
22. Yukata

^ Move to the Japanese Festival page.

There is a lot of redundancy within the wiki clearly.

The motto over on Screened and across all former WM sites was specific over general. The wikis should be filled with oddly specific pages pertaining only to one or two shows/movies. But of course there are themes and ideas that tend to pop up in more than one anime.

I understand that some animes will break trend and not fit 100% into every mold but you can't make an exception for every show.

So you have to go way too specific for most pages with the occasional general page to understand when something is a yuri or has yuri elements for example.

Except on GB. :P

Kidding aside, that'd really benefit the wiki here on Anime Vice. You could have more well put together pages instead of just a ton of pages with images upon images attached. (Could even rework the galleries to make them more put together or something. It could look really nice!)

Although I do think that a few pages (such as Yuri/Yaoi/Gay/Lesbian) are fine being separate. I mean, yuri and yaoi are a genre, right? Where as the other is more of a specific character whereas the series may not embody what yuri and yaoi is about. Maybe make those two a well done concept and have gay/lesbian as a combined concept instead?

Sorry for bringing this up.

and Daniel Newton:

Should we combine Catgirl, Catboy, and Furry into Kemonomimi?

I agree that catgirl and catboy should be combined with Kemonomimi, but Furry (that should probably be renamed to Anthropomorphism) is a different thing. Anthros are basically animals that walk and talk like humans, like Sonic the Hedgehog for example.

Oh, I see. I was confused when I saw this new word.

I want you to read this list's OP. We're trying to move from general objects, concepts etc to franchise specific pages.
