Welcome everyone, today we'll go over the many differences in the wiki features and tools that Anime Vice and Wiki Communities use. I hope this will influence and motivate the engineers and others in Anime Vice to improve its wiki editing system.
Please drop any comments, suggestions, or improvements.
Improvements for Anime Vice: Daniel Newton noted that the episode wiki pages are a bit disorganized in his thread, Episode Page Template: Feedback Wanted. The wiki style is very inconsistent. I proposed using a template box that is like Screened to organized the miscellaneous information such as arc names, theme songs, and more.
In Anime Vice, we usually have glitches. A preview would be extremely helpful.
Both wikia communities need to have a search engine.
Improvements For Anime Vice: We need exact dates like January 7, 2011 format. The exact time is not needed. A search engine would be excellent since the Wikia communities have it, too.
To Search For An Image: In a Wikia Community, a new wiki editor might not know how to search for an image. This leads to making duplicates images. An advanced editor knows URLs to search images, but a new editor is disadvantaged. In Anime Vice, it's easier to find images. You can just search galleries by scrolling down in the sub galleries you made.
Anime Vice: No improvements in image galleries, but we do need a stricter image policy and eliminate the redundant episode gallery. We have two galleries for episode wiki pages, one for the anime page and one for the episode, it is titled by the episode's name. Keep the anime page since it is the main gallery that people use.
Wikia Communities: Make image policy visible and put it on the main image gallery for new editors to see.
Anime Vice: I'm not sure about the Fair Use Rationale. It's time consuming, and the community has thousands of images already. It's highly unlikely that this community established a Fair Use Rationale. I would like it because it prevents copyright and gives respect to authors.
