Neregate has 7 shows I didn't put since it contrasts with Anichart which I finished transcribing it. I'll be posting the Rough Draft of the Winter 2015 guide and calling it a day. PM me if you need me.

Editing & Tools » Guidebooks & Artbooks Submission Feedback Corner

Welcome everyone to this wiki thread. The reason I opened up this thread was that I'm unsure about the inclusion of guidebooks, artbooks, databooks, etc. After writing the Beginner Guide to Manga Wiki Editing, I was under the impression we didn't allowed them. We did have a few added in the database long before I was a user or mod. During my first year of wiki moderation, I had rejected artbooks and such because they weren't technically manga. I realized I may made a mistake on my interpretation.

Let's be honest, our wiki rules are outdated and unclear. With 4 wiki mods, we can't get policies through due to differences. For me, being very active and handling the wiki with editors on a daily basis, I need policies to be clear for me and the editors. Otherwise, I have to make judgements on the spot.

What we have here is a general rule of thumb. These rules are not set in stone. This thread will be receiving external wiki moderation not just from wiki mods but from wiki editors when you submit an guidebook/artbook. You are not sure if it belongs in our database. The grand purpose of this thread is to establish a general rule of thumb regarding artbook/guidebooks submissions in our wiki database as well as giving all wiki editors a place to receive feedback on guidebooks/artbooks they are unsure whether to add it or not.

General Rule of Thumb

  • The guidebook/artbook must have significant or valuable information to add. These can be character notes, interviews from the author/cast, sketches that influences the final character designs, etc.
  • Guidebooks must be from franchises whose original source material is anime, manga, light novel, manhwa, or anime styled. No video game, TV, or comic book based guidebooks and artbooks are allowed.
  • If the franchise has only one artbook/guidebook, which doesn't have significant information that contributes to the franchise, it's not allowed.
  • But if the franchise has a series of artbooks/guidebooks (at least 3), then allow them.

Thanks

I thank Dekken and Yusuke52 for their input and response on the general rule of thumb section. Yusuke suggested to me to open a thread, so we all can work together.

Can i borrow this image?

If you are asking someone on an old thread, chances are that they are not active. You always need consent with people's fan fic. Though, it's contradictory for the wiki community since most editors upload fan art from various sources. Personally, I never upload fan art. After experiences with the Magi Wikia community, where someone asked me and Admin to stop uploading fan subbed author sketches. I never did agree, but we removed them in the end.

Off-Topic » What's Going Through you Mind Right Now?

I wish I can read Japanese. As a wiki editor for anime and manga, this is the probably the best skill next to HTML coding. The Wikia uses coding a lot, and we use a coding a bit since our system is more automated.

Editing & Tools » Request an image change here

@reiyo:

With horizontal images, it gets scale down a bit. For vertical images, they scale up a bit, taking more room. I don't know how much. That's why we use 300 x 450 images for the best default image in character pages. Not every page has the luxury of that size.

You are the active editor of the DBZ project as of now and the top editor of the concept page. Do you want me to change the image after seeing the changes above?

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Magic Kaito 1412 Discussion

@Marshal Victory:

I tried the first two episodes. It was pretty engaging. The show reminds me of Mysterious Joker and I made a bad comparison between it and Lupin. Magic Kaitou and Mysterious Joker have more in common. Kaitou has an over arching plot unlike Joker which is more episodic and appeals to the younger audience.

Oh the noses in this show are shark and pointy.

Episode 4 explores Shinichi's past with his parents and more biology since Michi can detach himself for 3 minutes.

Oh, the directive stuff is challenging the whole nature vs nurture theory which I find fascinating. Human beings are so complex which makes it interesting to see where we are.

Indeed. I thought the Chaikas were clones made at the factory. Turns out they were orphan girls brainwashed by magic. Who's in the testing tube, Gaz's clone or another Chaika?

I predict a demi-human rebellion.

Off-Topic » Comic Book Club

Speaking of video game club, I should bump this one. Let me share some cool cosplay photos from LB Comic Con 2014. I didn't have much since I was too shy.

Then, I share what I think of the

My first two actual hard copy comic books. I bought a random Spider-Man issue because he has my favorite X-Men gal as his girlfriend. I was like, "what!" Spider-Man and the other heroes are shipped with so many gals. Peter Parker is a man whore.

Batman The Killing Joke is a great comic read. It was about how Joker was born. It was a different take from what I saw in the DC animated film, Batman: Mask of Phantasm. It was a lot darker in the comic book than the film.

I really want to buy Harley Quinn's Suicide Squad comic book series at the convention. Though, I had a budget which I couldn't go over.

Attended a Psychology panel on Harley Quinn

Off-Topic » Video Game Club

@MarioRedfield:

It's tough trying to promote things in the community. For me, I go with the flow. If folks talk about things they like, I ask them what are their two cents and recommendation on it. I also ask folks what their recommended games on consoles.

GokaiRed mentioned Guilty Crown, and I never played it before. I asked him for his two cents.

I asked you, Mario, for games on the Wii U and PlayStation 3 since I don't have a lot of games.

We have Comic Book Club that isn't so lucky like this one. I'm not an avid comic book reader, but I try to put what I experience and ask folks for recommendations to boost discussion.

Going by your question: favorite genres:

  • RPG (mostly JRPG since I haven't done western ones), Platformers, Fighting (I suck at BlazBlue while my siblings are pro), Action/Adventure, Simulation Games (prefer Animal Crossing over Harvest Moon)
  • Least favorite: Shooter games, horror games (Walking Dead is an exception. Took me a while to beat it since I'm not good with horror)

@whiskers:

Anything you don't like about this show?

For me, I haven't seen a lot of Shoujo adaptations. The most unique one I watched recently was World is Still Beautiful. I recall seeing shows with blackmail with their romance. This does feel like a rehash of tropes.

I watched this show since I got nothing much on Sundays. At least, it's entertaining for me. I feel bad for Erika.

Off-Topic » Video Game Club

@Acura_Max:

To be honest, you can post whatever you like regarding video games as long as it doesn't offend anyone. I know you expressed your thoughts that the video game club is dead. I'm doing my best to keep the thread active. I'm having a discussion with folks on games we love.

We can have different topics going on. It shouldn't stop you or others. It's an opened discussion for everyone. You don't want to stop folks from passionately talking about games they love. We might have a disproportionate amount of attention to one game. It will wane once the game is release and a few months pass by. Then, we have a new hyped up game that riles up the community.

Edit:

@MarioRedfield said:

Maybe we should make a "Nintendo Club".

I recently started playing LittleBigPlanet on the Vita again. It was fun going through a Superman level with a Superman costume. The DLC they release for the game is pretty ridiculous, though.

Oh... and I like Xbox. A lot.

Shoot, I double posted. If we do that, we might divide up a discussion thread up into consoles and mobile gaming. This thread might be obsolete.

If folks don't mind that, I'll probably be at the Nintendo and PlayStation thread since I never owned an Xbox before.

Battles » Vote For The Best Battle User of November 2014

Two more days. I have to send the battle interview PMs. For Taichokage, we might do one since we didn't do one because I was still in the pilot stage of the project. Thought I can do research on folks, but it was better to do an interview later on in the early 2014. I didn't know Taichokage until Fall 2013.

Status:

Thanks.

No worries, I seen folks asking me where you save your wiki submissions, make a list, post a blog, or write a review. They miss a button there.

The aesthetics of the site is a bit disorienting when you haven't got used to it yet.
