Alright, these will also be taken in consideration and, hopefully, finished soon. As for the questions:
- Yūto Sakaeguchi.
- I think it should be " (1) The Real Ace (Manga) " and " (1) The Real Ace (Anime) ". This way the people won't have to enter a page to know the chapter/episode's name, and will also know which chapter/episode it is ( first, second, third, etc. )
Got it. Follow-up questions:
(1) So it will be Yūto Sakaeguchi (栄口 勇人 Sakaeguchi Yūto)? For the romaji part (inside the parentheses), should we follow the Modern Hepburn?
(2) Regarding to my 2nd question (chapters and episodes), the titles should be settled down on what version we should follow. What I mean is, for instance, in the case of episode 1 and chapter 1, the title of chapter 1 in the english scans is The True Ace while the title of episode 1 is The Real Ace. What version will be followed?
The Real Ace (Manga) and The Real Ace (Anime)
The True Ace (Manga) and The True Ace (Anime)
There is also the issue of redirects and disambugations. For instance, if the user types Episode 1, on what page should (s)he go. (Don't curse me from these things. XDD /runs)
Also, aside from those, I would like to add something from the to-do list. This can be considered as low priority or something:
Editing the Community Message (the one found in the Recent Wiki Activity)
Provide pictures for the badges
Layout for disambugation, stubs and the like
Creating the Manual of Style
Don't forget the lyrics of the OP and ED of the 2nd season XD
The heck with this list ... OTL. I am just remembering the reason I do not like updating the character pages. XDD /dead
Hm ... I just created a redirect page for the exact episode you used as an example, and when someone types " Episode 1 " it will now redirect to this page. ( I also modified the episode's title to prove it, and that is how I wish for the episodes' names to look like in the near future too. )
And alright. I'll edit my post and add your ideas up there as well then.
Some sort of suggestion but how about include the list of characters who appeared in the chapter/episode + Manga/Anime Differences for the episode? It is kind of troublesome though, lol. (Just an excuse to make that table of contents appear. XDD) Also, I am not sure of the difference between sypnosis and summary, so my distinction on that part may be incorrect. Oops. ^^;;
Finally, if you have suggestions regarding the appearance of wikia, feel free to tell me and let's see what can I do. :D
I know that you wanted to change the wordmark, and I found this one...
It's not really that different except for the thing at the bottom and the color of it. I just thought it would be better because the color kind of matches with the color scheme that we are currently using. I also noticed in many other wikis, that the wordmark usually says wiki on it, so I can see if I could possibly change the "Oofuri" at the bottom to wiki (anyone else can do it, if they want to though) Just a suggestion.. we don't need to use it...
In my case, I personally prefer to retain it and place the wiki somewhere. Some people do not know that Ookiku Furikabutte (Oofuri) and Big Windup are the same. ^^;;
EDIT: Also, heads up on the edit on the chapter's infobox. Check Chapter 2 for details. Regarding the navigation part, you can also put it as [[(CH2)_The_Catcher's_Role_(Manga) | Chapter 2]] instead of simply [[Chapter 2]]. There is also the case of [[(EP2) The Catcher's Role (Anime) | The Catcher's Role (Anime)]], instead of The Catcher's Role (Anime). Well, I would not mind editing it though. Just FYI. XDD
I only edited the "World" one for now, since there are only 4 submenus at "Characters". I could delete the "Mihoshi Academy" and let Musashino First there instead, so after "Other Players" I could put the "Parents". Though I've noticed it "looks better" as "Nishiura High School"-"Mihoshi Academy"-"Musashino First High School"-"Other Players".
I think your ideas were good. I'll put some names under "Other Players" in a few minutes too.
As for the CATEGORIES, I believe it's best if we change them. For example, from "Nishiura" to "Nishiura High School" ; "Mihashis" to "Mihashi Family". It just looks neater, so please abstain from re-adding "Mihashis", as used in the example, back on after I deleted it.
IMO, for Characters, I might feature the teams of "Nishiura, Tosei, Sakitama (more or less?)" then, "Other Players" and "Other People" (cheerleaders, parents, coaches). Other Players will include Kanou, Oda, Hatake, Haruna and Akimaru. I did not include Musashino in the featured teams because of my view of Haruna being an "one-man army" lol. But then, if they had featured a lot of remarkable players during their match against Nishiura, why not? XD
I've also checked one of your articles in types of pitches. Some comments and suggestions:
Include references. I know that was one of my misses before. XD
May include the things the mangaka said before in the omake or something
As you add the categories, "tag" the players who use it ... ?
I better run now. lol
EDIT: Dunno if you care or not, anyway, just FYI XD
I implemented an "upgraded" version of Infobox character (upgraded since it uses now the new markup for infobox). For now, only Nishiura has it (the ones with Infobox character (Nishiura)) so expect ... messed up stuff here and there. (lol) Soon, other schools will have it, hopefully by end of this month. @_@ As for the messed-up stuff, will fix it as soon as I find time and motivation. XDD Oops
In case you have not realized it yet, Episode and Chapter infobox also implement the new infobox markup so if in case you something messed-up, just tell me
Speaking of infoboxes, does anyone know the color of uniforms for some schools (like Senda)? For the font color and background colors of some stuff..
2. 'did'? Why? XD btw, feel free to comment regarding its appearance. I've been experimenting stuff on the infobox so I really would like to hear comments on those. :3
3. kk. :) If you have colored pics on Senda's uniform, just upload it here. :Dv
EDIT: Two things
I got a picture for Senda. Will do the adjustments in the future.
Senda ... why you have a lot of members. Enumerating members in Volume 25 will be a very pain in the ass. OTL
Would it be acceptable to create gallery subpages for characters to put unused images into which got removed from the main page? This way they wouldn't overclutter a character page as they did originally while still being useful in showing how they appear in the anime.
There are galleries/subpages for most of the existing characters, openings/endings, episodes, teams and whatnot. If you have any that haven't been used yet, however, you can post them in their respective gallery/galleries. But be mindful of the regulations that have been put up.
I've noticed that many other wikis included a character's manga and anime appearances in their character infoboxes. I was thinking maybe we could do that too. We don't have to do it. It's just a suggestion!! <:
Well, if you are referring to their debut appearance, we already have that. Long, long ago. (lol) It's just, the subsection (or whatever you call it XD) will not appear if there is no data for "manga=" and "anime=" :Dv Or probably, I messed up somewhere in the codes. Oops.
If you are not referring to that, can you explain it to me? Some samples will also help. ^^
If you have doubts, just check Ren Mihashi's page. If I remember correctly, it has the most complete listings of things to be filled-up. :Dv
pfff--- trying to hold my laugh. XD You really refer to that wikia? XD
@Abetakaya, how about using File:Oofuri_jpn_logo.png instead, then put "Big Windup" at the bottom of the "振りかぶって" (in small letters, probably uppercase?), while the wikia will be at the right side of "おおきく"?
@YumekoChanny, anime/manga-related wiki at least. :)) You can aim at those popular wiki. XD
Alright then. I'll try to talk to some admins about affiliations on the popular sports animangas first ( Haikyuu, Diamond no Ace, Yowamushi Pedal, etc ), then see about the others ( like Owari no Seraph, Naruto, etc ).
Also for the watermarks, to me the second one looks better ( the one that ends with Big Windup! Wiki ) than the first where "Wiki" is harder to be spotted.
@Abetakaya I also prefer the 2nd one. XD I was thinking of expanding the space between letters of "Big Windup Wiki" (enough to be aligned in the 振 and て) but it seems that the one you gave looked better. ^^;;
@YumekoChanny (and @Abetakaya by extension) You can edit Template: Affiliates once you got some affiliations. *nom nom*
Well, for most wikia, a message on the message wall usually suffice so I guess it's fine. The thread in the forum is just a suggestion of mine if in case you want it more organized (since all of the admin are active here. XD)
As for the rules, there's no set rules so far (right YumekoChanny? ^^;;) but ... personally, I guess we should only affiliate with those related in anime/manga. Not sure with the Manhwa/Manhua/webtoons though...
BTW, if in case you edit the template of affiliates and it has not appeared in the main page, do an empty edit to purge page. (edit -> publish (without doing edits whatsoever))
Yes, there are no rules whatsoever as of right now, but I too, have thought about adding some regarding the Wikias we affiliate it; and as Chixm8 said, I'd rather not affiliate with Wikias that aren't anime or manga related. Although Manhwa should be fine as well ?
I've managed to get quite some affiliations last night before going to bed and today I'm going to keep looking for more Wikias to affiliate with.
That's some good news. Firstly, yes, that's what we (?) had in mind. As for the changes, they're good as well. That image for the places with no photos provided was just something I quickly found before going to bed one night and used it but in the end it seems it was fine enough.
I'll check out the changes made on the other pages and infoboxes a little later, since I need to take a nap due to a current headache, but after that I'll go see things around and of course, tell my opinion on it and whatnot.
