Purpose: Because I have writer's block and I'm not a good writer, I have to read a lot of beginner guides in the Anime Vice Community. Despite the fact that I'm a wiki editor and my writing grew better these past 10 months, I have no style but only substance. This means my guides could be boring.
The only things I accomplished on my rough drafts is the characters and what story arcs need to be covered. The only things I need to work on are the intro and the conclusion/verdict.
I'm not going to write my drafts or reveal what franchises I'm going to write about. It'll be a surprise.
This is a personal blog for me to reference, but it's for others who have writer's block on their guides. If you want to help me, please feel free. Today, I'm going to read some beginner guides, bookmark the good ones, and update this blog until this weekend is over.
I'm on a deadline: I have to submit at least one beginner guide before the end of August.
Examples: Vampire Knight
Godlen has his style; Sotyfan16 has his style. Regardless, there is a set format, I believe.
I think it's okay to take their format style and put a spin on it. I got the characters and story arcs done, and all I have to work on is the intro and last two points.
I would like to thank the people who wrote the beginner guides and the advanced guides as well. They have the guts to write a guide. I'm just an amateur who has writer's block.
Thank you Sotyfan16 for the extra help! (Before this blog)
Good luck to those who want to write their first beginner guide!
Go Anime Vice!
Purpose: To document the history of past wiki editors, present, and future wiki editors. This is a commemoration to all wiki editors who worked hard. Since I used to be a historian for my clubs at college, my community service and role has seared this element into my Anime Vice life.
Note: This is not an exhaustive list since most of information are vague and going through wiki submissions of wiki editors are long. I don't have exact dates, but thought counts.
First, I add the dates of the volumes of Shaman King since it gives a rough timeline for events before February 24, 2011. The dates for adding Shaman King volumes are very beneficial to this blog.
|Volumes 1-10||Volumes 11-20||Volumes 21-30|
|Vol. 1: Dec. 5, 2008 by Void_Wizard||Dec. 16, 2008 by Haseo||May 23, 2009 by AgentJ|
|Vol. 2: Dec. 11, 2008 by DarkShpaer||Dec. 16, 2008 by Haseo||May 23, 2009 by AgentJ|
|Vol. 3: Dec. 12, 2008 by DarkShaper||Dec. 16, 2008 by Haseo||May 23, 2009 by AgentJ|
|Vol. 4: Dec. 12, 2008 by DarkShaper||Dec. 16, 2008 by Haseo||Oct. 8, 2009 by Obsidian609|

**Why is Haseo's name is DarkShaper?
*Before I came to work on this project, 29 volumes were added already, and vols. 1-3 had plot summaries while volumes 10-26 had table of contents. In Shaman King, Hiroyuki Takei, author of Shaman King, created 32 volumes. I decide to add the remaining 3 volumes after I finished plot summaries for all of 29 volumes in the right format.
Ethan - Without him, none of these wiki pages exist without his authorization.
I wanted to thank the previous wiki editors who worked hard on this franchise. It was a rough road of taking on Shaman King franchise alone for 7 months now. I met new people who edit on some the Shaman King pages and ask them to help out.
Goal: I will complete this franchise, with a team or no team, by the end of this year. This is one of the major wiki projects that I have no partner on. I'm lucky to have a partner for Rave Master and a team on Fairy Tail.
*If I forgot you, I'm sorry. Can you PM me please, so I can add you. Oh, if you are one of the wiki editors who worked on Shaman King, I ask you give dates or any information for the historian blog and the vitae list.
Go Anime Vice!
Purpose: It's almost a year where I become a year old wiki editor. I see a lot of wiki editors keeping track of their contributions. I should have done it early.
This is a personal blog that I will use for a future Anime Vice 1st Year Anniversary Blog. (Inspired by Soty16's My Anime Vice 1 Year Anniversary Blog) It's like streamlining my future blog by creating this stat blog. I have to keep track now.
The lists are in chronological order. A lot of time is spent on the vitae lists.
It's time consuming, but it is more organized and faster to update than the recognition blogs.
The lists do not contain individual volumes and episodes, so I used the recognition and the historian (Not created yet) blogs to gather those data.
I list the ones that I created except the bugs report and blog posts. This is not an exhaustive list since I did not keep track until today. Plus, it's a short list since I don't go into forums much except when it's related to wiki, wiki editors, news, and the community.
Is Natsu's relationship with Lucy going be like Haru and Elie's? (March 25, 2011) - This is my proudest thread that I created for Fairy Tail, yet I regretted making into a forum thread. If it is blog, I could have linked it to Haru Glory, Elie, Natsu, Lucy, and more. This thread gives a wide amount of evidence and commentary on comparing Natsu's relationship with Lucy, Erza, and Lisanna to Haru and Elie's relationship.
Seikon no Qwaser's Teresa Beria's War Rape History (July 19, 2011) - I was disillusioned by the franchise and how Teresa Beria is traumatized by her sisters (nuns) being raped and killed in Yugoslavia's ethnic cleansing. I felt like I shouldn't create a thread, but I did it to show that the franchise did a good job of connecting real history. Not lot of franchises talk about war rape. Hopefully, this thread does not spark any controversy.
Most of my threads are light hearted except for my last one. I try to make some threads to spotlight characters for my wiki projects.
I can't remember all my wiki points progress, so I check my pm box.
Thank you. This is just a laundry list of forums and lists.
Go Anime Vice!
Welcome to another lovely recognition blog.
Purpose: Like all of the recognition blogs, rekindle the flame into the Anime Vice community and to boost morale of wiki editors.
Once we get the team form and things moving along, this franchise's wiki pages will join the other franchises the circle of Anime Vice life.
Note: There are vague details before July 2011 for Blue Exorcist regarding who started it, worked on it, and more.
A team vitae list keeps an organized data of all of the little contributions to the characters, concepts, objects, and more. The only thing it cannot do is keeping track of episodes and volumes. This table will be organized in alphabetical order. Right now, I leave some areas blank since I cannot tell the specific contributions.
|Wiki Editors||Area of Contributions|
This is the same layout as the Team Blue Exorcist Vitae list. I'm experimenting with adding the list onto the blog using the new editor. The problems is that the list is very long.
Note: The list is edited differently from the actual vitae list to make it more subjective and third person.
|4. Kamiki Izumo|
|5. Konekomaru Miwa|
|9. Noriko Paku|
|11. Rin Okumura|
|12. Ryūji Suguro|
|13. Renzo Shima|
|14. Shiemi Moriyama|
|15. Shiro Fujimoto|
|16. Shura Kirigakure|
|17. Okumura Yukio|
|Demon Slaying Sword Kurikara|
|19. True Cross Academy|
|20. Kazue Kato|
*Hashino is out of place and should have been first in alphabetical order, and Amaimon, Igor, and Mephisto are not on this list. (See below)
It's the same problem as the character list. As the series progresses, the episodes and characters will probably need a separate list.
Interestingly, the Blue Exorcist recognition blog is pretty long than Fairy Tail's recognition blog because of the character list. I will publish a historian blog about the episodes and plot summary for Blue Exorcist as well as for the other wiki projects: Fairy Tail, Shaman King, and Rave Master.
Thank you for reading this blog. PM me if I forgot you. This is not an exhaustive list. I will keep on updating this or publish a historian blog for the episodes.
Go Anime Vice!
Purpose: This is a personal checklist to keep track of what work that my team and I do. I have to break down the tasks to manage my time.
Current Projects in July: Blue Exorcist episodes, Fairy Tail episodes, Shaman King volumes, reformatting Gosick episodes (started 2nd week of summer school), and reformatting Shadowknight508's characters.
Active Current teammates: Anna and Newten (Fairy Tail).
Supporting Teammates/Pillars of SUPPORT:
*Since I haven't make a log and the vitae lists don't have dates of work, I put down June in this blog. I apologize if this list is messy for this section.
Rave Master project started in May 17, 2011 and has ended on June 28, 2011.
Section completed for now.
When Piface314 came home, she proposed to Anna and I that we start working on Sket Dance franchise. See team blog (Sket Dance Wiki Project: Team Wiki Nation - Anna, Piface314, Taka) that started on August 18, 2011.
Blog is completely finished updating as of August 26, 2011.
