This is a summary of all the wiki stuff I do across the Whiskey Media sites and one Wikia community.

New Projects

Hey everyone, I can't believe how time flies so fast. After the summer is over, my teammates and I finished most of the summer 2012 anime projects. We only added all of the characters (except for minor characters) and finish all of the episode summaries.

With the fall semester in session, it's going to be hard to manage wiki editing with school work and volunteering at Church and in my community. I tried to only do like 3 hours in the weekend. Somehow, I end up working overtime. I need to improve my time management because I tend to focus on one or two things a day instead of doing rotating from one area to another area.

Magi the Labyrinth of Magic
Magi the Labyrinth of Magic
Start Date: Oct. 10, 2012
I pick this project from the start because it was Annabanana's favorite manga series. Since she and I had similar tastes in Shonen anime shows, I decided to give the anime a try. Despite the shonen cliches, I got hooked onto the show with its characters and strong themes of slavery and poverty that will pop up frequently.

Roles: Complete episode summaries and adding characters
Start Date: Oct. 6, 2012
At first, I wanted to avoid watching this series because of the graphic content. Like Deadman Wonderland, Hagure Yusha, and Seikon no Qwaser, I'll end up getting hooked like a moth to a flame. Yeah, I don't know what drives me to work on these pages. It's not the sex or the violence that stimulates me, but it's more about watching the insanity and despair that makes me curious.

Roles: Complete episode summaries and adding characters
Teammate: Acura_Max
Start Date: Oct. 20, 2012
I had no interest in watching this show, and I was picking potential fall anime shows that the folks of Anime will be interested. Learning from my mistakes in the summer season, I noticed some discussion threads are dead while some are not. I know that Stein;Gates was popular in this community, so I open the discussion thread on this one. Along the way, Acura_Max and ElfenLied1012 got me to try this series. Somehow, I like the show because of the two characters that foil each other: Akiho Senomiya and Kaito Yashio.

Roles: Adding Characters.
*I don't think I have time to add summaries with a full plate of projects.

Old and Ongoing Projects

Fairy Tail
Fairy Tail
Teammates: Daniel Newton
Resting Teammates: Annabanana, Wales, Obsidian609, Buhssuht
Start Date: Around November 2010
This is one of my first and biggest wiki project. I love working and watching Fairy Tail, and I'm glad to work with one of the biggest wiki editing in the community. It was awesome when Ethan and FoxxFireArt open a slew of wiki tasks on Fairy Tail back in spring of 2011, and Anna, Wales, Buhssuht, and I just finished them in a day.

Roles: I still recall the old days. Now, I'm working with Daniel on the anime and keeping it updated.

Sket Dance
Sket Dance
Resting Teammates: Annabanana, KuroNekoXIII, MohsinMan99, HalberdierV2, Piface314, Hibaru

Start Date: August 18, 2011
Piface314 invited Annabanana and I to try the show. When we got hooked on the show, I started the first weekly reports in order to boost discussion and spotlight the wiki work that my teammates do. Along the way, KuroNekoXIII and MohsinMan99 join the team. Geo came back and wrote news on the show. It was a fantastic experience, and I enjoyed working on this series with my teammates.

Roles: With the anime gone, I'm not working on it as hard as I used to be. I'm just cleaning up the formatting.

Sword Art Online Season 2
Sword Art Online Season 2
Start Date: July 16, 2012
This is one of the newest shows I work on since the summer 2012 and the only one that is running. Ever since I saw the trailer, I was so hyped up to watch the show. It's one of the best shows I watch in the summer along with Binbogami Ga and Humanity Has Declined. I enjoy watching and discussing with the good folks here in Anime Vice.

Even this is a solo project, I had some help from Sonata who got some nice default images and Daniel who helped me on the main anime page and format the episode pages. AnimeReviewDaily worked on Kirito and the main anime page. Buhssuht helped me out on the franchise page.

Roles: Adding episode summaries and characters.

Giant Bomb

Independent Wiki Editors: Hailinel, Chalphy, and Video_Game_King

See Fire Emblem Community and the Unofficial Fire Emblem Fan Club

Start Date: December 2010?

I used to work on Fire Emblem characters, but I didn't have enough time to gather notes from Serenes Forest, Fire Emblem Wikia, and Youtube Videos. The challenge with these characters is compiling an article on their back story, dialogue, stats, and anything I can find. Right now, I'm just adding video games from Japan that were influenced or spawn the anime series that I worked on.

Examples: Alice in the Country of Hearts, La Storia della Arcana Famiglia, Guilty Crown: Lost Xmas, and Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment.


I'm just adding episodes and quotes for my favorite TV shows: Supernatural and Raising Hope. Don't have time to do full plot summaries like I do at Anime Vice.

Comic Vine

Start Date: Oct. 17, 2012

I first came to Comic Vine after clicking on the news articles on the bottom of Anime Vice's website. That was a year ago. I didn't know Comic Vine had Japanese manga until I stumbled upon FoxxFireArt's blog about having a staff writer focusing on manga. Over there, I was introduced to another awesome wiki editor, PikaHyper. The man had an ambition to expand on the foreign comic database and adding more manga titles than Anime Vice. It made me work in Comic Vine.

While I was working on the manga pages, PikaHyper helped me lot in Comic Vine with the wiki style and the rules. I added manga volumes from Anime Vice and adding manga volumes from Comic Vine to Anime Vice. Usually, I concentrate my work on a few projects, and I don't create a lot of different series that I'm not familiar with. His ambitions changed my wiki outlook, and I'm adding new titles either from Quick Picks or CV for the sake of expanding the database.

I hoping that the work on foreign comics that PikaHyper and everyone else did can bridge the gap between Comic Vine and Anime Vice and increase wiki editing in both communities as well.

Sket Dance Wikia

Teammates: Balthierfan, Utipintar, Lynxian (Admin)

Start Date: February 2, 2012

Became an admin on April 24, 2012. It's the same situation in the Sket Dance project for Anime Vice. Unlike Anime Vice, I have to check the community every day because the new and anonymous editors tend to mess up due to not reading the rules. I help them and fix any mistakes. Plus, there are spammers who attack the pages occasionally. Ever since the Sket Dance anime has ended, my gears are slow, but I still continue to work on the characters a bit and watching the wikia activity.
