I unlocked the page, didn't even realize it had been locked. lol
Also don't worry about. When it comes to granting adminship, it is just a process that takes a while. You typically want to make sure that a user fully understands/upholds wiki guidelines and will be a regular visitor of the wiki as well before giving such responsibility.
If there is anything else you need, let me know! c:
I don't mean to nag, but is there any chance you could give me admin-ship or moderator status soon? There are some pages I can't edit because they're locked. At this time, I want the title so I can continue to work and keep continuety within pages.
Which articles are you referring to that are locked? The only articles that should be locked should be the main page and templates that are design-based.
As I've mentioned before, the process takes a while of observation of user edits to make sure that they fully understand the wiki guidelines, such as the policies and manual of styles, before deciding to grant adminship. Please don't misunderstand that we have already decided to grant you an administrator position, as that is still being decided based on your contributions. If there are any articles that happen to be locked that should not be, please let me or Riopug know so we can unlock them if necessary.
That's strange, those articles shouldn't be locked. My only guess is that since there isn't much to add to them, at some point they were locked for whatever reason. Just checked the second original soundtrack's article and that one isn't protected, so it shouldn't be locked. I'll have the others unlocked, but if the other article is still locking you out, let me know and I can see if there is some sort of technical problem.
Here we use "Active" and "Deceased" for the status of characters. So yeah, if there are any articles where a character's status is "Alive" then it is best to change it to "Active" for, as you said, continuity.
Also, just a heads up, but on this wiki we don't link voice actors. ^^;
No problem, just letting you know. It's more of a personal choice among us, but also due to the lack of information on some outer websites. For example, Wikipedia may have an article on one voice actor, but not another, and same for other sites as well. So it just gets a bit "messy" so to speak.
(Please understand that I am not angry or mean any ill will ; I'm often told I sound angry in text. This is not at all the case.)
I understand that the character cards give the eye colour. But as it's been shown, there are slight variations from anime to manga. Kenshirou is listed in the manga as having "cherry blossom-like eye colour", and in the manga they are a much brighter colour than in the anime. In the anime, they are not at all a "cherry blossom" colour. When changing the eye colours on character profiles, I was using an actual colour identifying website. Would you settle for some characters having listings such as in the case of Kenshirou? i.e Cherry Blossom-like (manga) Raspberry (anime) ? As is done with Jyugo?
As for the quotation marks, using the Japanese 「」 doesn't make sense to me. I am rather unsure if the aim here (in terms of wiki-like accuracy) is to copy the writing of how a real Wikipedia articles would look and be read. I referenced some Wikipedia articles when trying to decide how to write and present some information.
I strive for pin-point accuracy when contributing and having the eye of an editor and artist; I feel it's quite strong, this leads to slight irritation when my corrections are reverted. Though I understand that can seem quite immature, but I don't make it known either way.
That being said, I don't want to be battling contributors or admins. I would like to formally inquire about possibly having an admin status for this wikia? I feel I have contributed and will continue to contribute a fair amount of information. My organizational skills are very well sharpened as I do have OCD ( >.>) I am also quite excellent at information gathering.
Please reply when you can, Cheers, -Duchess
In regards to the eye color, as the web manga is the main canon and source for this series, we primarily go by official information given by the author; i.e. the official character cards for one that provide a character's information. The color identifying website could be used with colors that are majorly different in the anime, to the point of barely little resemblance to the web manga, as well as with characters that have no official information revealed. Looking at Kenshirou's eye color variation between the web manga and anime, an entry for the color in the anime should be fine, however, the canon eye color of the web manga should remain but in the format as shown in Jyugo's article, as you've mentioned.
Looking up other wikis, we can change the current format for the quoted Japanese names to the following format: (七夕星太郎 Tanabata Seitarou)
I use the above as the change as that is the most common format I have seen in most wikis from what I've looked up.
Do keep in mind that when it comes to something such as a format change (as stated in the Rules & Guidelines under the Manual of Style articles), it would be great for users to discuss any modifications to an article's format with an admin first to avoid any controversy. This aids us to figure out any current issues, as well as improving the wiki.
In regards to the admin request, you have made very noteworthy contributions, however, you've only started contributing since July 1st. We don't actually accept admin requests, rather when accepting new admins, we look at a user's contributions and if they are shown to follow and understand the wiki guidelines and are regularly active and feel that they are responsible enough for some extra control over the wiki, then we will request the user in question about adminship.
Please do note that I am not declining your request, rather I encourage you to contribute more. We do notice all contributions, big and small, by all users on the wiki and we take note of them. We'd love to have more staff here, but please do understand that as a result of previous admins that have been appointed and then leaving abruptly for long periods at a time without any notice, we'd like to see plenty of contribution by a user who is regularly active before appointing adminship. In other words, please give it time before we consider adminship. We would love to have someone with good information gathering skills here, as my Japanese is limited, basic at best, and it has been difficult for us to access the web manga ever since Comico changed it to where one has to purchase a chapter. I also encourage you to discuss anything with either me or Riopug if there is anything you need help with or wish to inquire about.
It may sound dumb when I say that I tend not to look at the "rules and regulations" of things because I feel I am well mannered enough to not cause much trouble. As for the 'change in format' that, I may be guilty of. I do try not to change a wikia's format too drastically, but rather in a way that I see is easier to read for a visiting reader. But at the same time, it is going against the rules and reg. so I do apologize for that. The changes I make to a format is always for efficiency, clarity and organization. Not to say that the format that has been provided is messy ot unreadable.
I will continue to make contributions. I appreciate it greatly that my 'request' is being considered. Is there at all a time line in which you estimate that I may be more viable for an admin status? I understand that a user has to show regular attendance, but as to how much that is, I am uncertain. I can't say it would be "every single day" but most definitely multiple times a week.
Also, if at any point the consideration for my admin status should increase: I can always provide a "resume" of sorts.
In short, thank you for your quick and well informed response. Cheers,
No worries. I feel that a wiki's policies can be similar to a ToS agreement, as who actually reads those long bodies of paragraphs in-depth? Skimming over them, however, will suffice as most of it, aside from the manual of style, is typically common sense (i.e. no harassing other users, the use of vulgar language, etc). We do try to keep things as organized as possible around here, as I am pretty OCD myself, to the point that I occasionally make minor edits to merely adjust the spacing in an article. Like I said before, if you or anyone else ever feels that something should be changed with the wiki's manual of style, please don't hesitate to discuss this with staff, we are more than open to any discussions!
I cannot exactly give a definite end date to when you'd be considered. I'd like to think any user possess the potential for adminship at any point if they show regularly that they are fit for the task. I can say though that while it won't be something as short as a week, I'd say at least give it about a month at the least, perhaps. And of course, we understand that everyone has their own lives outside of the wiki, I myself being a full-time college student with a part-time job, so requiring contribution every day would be rather ridiculous. Contributing at least a couple of times a week is sufficient. Of course, if you have the time, feel free to lurk as well! Just a tip, but fixing any mistakes made by other users, be it vandalism or grammar/spell checks is a big help! Say if, for example, we have a user that doesn't understand how a template works and inputs it incorrectly in an article, fixing that mistake would be great! Bonus points if one interacts with the previous user and constructively educates them on how to incorporate the template in the future. This shows not only that you are capable with wiki functions, but also that you are engaging the wiki community. ;)
Also, no need to worry about putting together a resume. All we look for in an admin is someone who is knowledgeable of the guidelines and fulfills them, polite and helpful, engaging, and of course a fan of Nanbaka! So when the time comes when we decide on whether to appoint you, we will let you know. When deciding admins, we prefer to discuss potential staff together and agreeing before appointing. This all being said, I will say that you have a high chance and we'd love to have a new member of the team! Again, just give it time with regular contributions and once we see that you will be active regularly over time, we'll appoint you.
Thank you again for your contributions, they are greatly appreciated! We look forward to potentially having you apart of the staff in the future!
We'd love to affiliate with you! I noticed you also requested affiliating with the Juuni Taisen wiki as well and we'd also love to affiliate with your wiki there!Just send over your wordmark and it'll be done. Here is Nanbaka's and Juuni Taisen's wordmarks.
Before asking you about the headline above, I wanted to take the opportunity to once again thank you for allowing the Mahou Tsukai no Yome Wiki to use your Image Policy, it's still very much appreciated, thank you. On another note, our wiki is coming along pretty nicely and with the anime just around the corner, I wanted to ask if you'd be interested in becoming affiliated with us?
Oh, and while on the topic of affiliation, would you also like to consider affiliating with the Houshin Engi wiki? It's another wiki I'm in charge of, I've recently been making some major updates to it since the remake's release is approaching, and it is in need of some affiliates. If you'd consider, I'd be much obliged. c:
