What do you think about adding something to the pages that have an associated video cached on the wiki? I know I never think to check out that area of a wiki and sometimes there is interesting material there. I'm not sure where we would put the notice or what it would say, so I'm spitballing the idea with you. Maybe a line in the infobox like: Video: link given???? Angelle 13:54, January 29, 2020 (UTC)
I think most major pages with associated videos do have them attached to the pages already, in an individual gallery at the bottom, I just haven't gotten round to adding all the ones I added a few months back yet or some of the really really old ones
Can you recall if the DISCORD widget has always appeared on every page of the wiki's right rail or just on users' Message Walls? I just don't recall because I don't use DISCORD. Angelle 15:50, January 28, 2020 (UTC)
I'll admit the only pages I really have a solid recollection of it being on are on the home page and the recent activity pages cause those are the ones I used to test that it was working when I added it, but looking at a regular page now I'm inclined to say I don't think so? Maybe wiki made some updates to how the widget functions?
Ok, whatever. I just added the widget to the Psycho-Pass wiki and asked the person adding it to duplicate wherever they saw it on this wiki, so I guess it's been where it's been all along. I don't use the feature so I'm sort of blind to it, y'know? It makes sense that it should be visible in the right rail at all times anyway. So...how are you? I'm recovering some sort of virus (not corona thank goodness - just a rhinovirus, maybe bird, maybe swine, maybe some other creature - who the heck knows anymore) but I'm on the mend now and feeling like myself again, bit by bit. Other than that, January has been relatively mild, but that doesn't mean February won't be brutal. It's usually when my area gets the heavy snow. So we'll see. That's all for now. Take Care.

Have you had a chance to consider the two emails I sent in reply to our discussion re: prefixes to ep titles and the issue of categories? I don't want to move forward without your input. Angelle 14:48, January 12, 2020 (UTC)
What I mean is the box that appears at the top of an article page listing all the segments. Also, where can I find the coding for the "Back to top" link on the bottom Admin menu. It's so helpful and I'd like to add it to a few other wikis. Thanks. Angelle 13:33, January 11, 2020 (UTC)
Glad you took care of this. For the record, I have no tolerance -- NONE -- for vandals and trolls. My policy is "you play nice or don't play at all." I have, therefore, changed all the blocked users to "infinite" blocks unless you, or anyone else reading this, objects with a valid reason for not doing so. I just deleted/reverted a good deal of vandalism on the Ouran wiki so I think this vandal may (or may not) be the same person using a different pseud. I suggest you take a look at the other wikis you manage a bit more frequently than usual to be sure they haven't been and aren't affected in the future. Angelle 04:48, January 10, 2020 (UTC) (smh)
All good, and I agree on a permanent ban, especially since considering they used the same images as last time I'm inclined to believe it's the same person just with a different account. Most of my other wikis are fairly niche except for one so I'm not to worried but thanks for the heads up
How are things your way? Are you affected in any way, air quality being the greatest concern? I've been reading about the terrible conditions and natural destruction that's happening. I also read that there have been arrests of individuals suspected of deliberately setting the fires. If that's true, their actions are truly criminal. I'm sorry to see this happening to your beautiful continent. Angelle 16:45, January 7, 2020 (UTC)
my area is actually completely unaffected by the fires (we've actually had less than usual which is odd but not unwelcome) luckily, thanks for asking. I worry about some of my friends though that live in sydney, their air quality at the moment is horrific and is about to get worse again unfortunately. I think the estimates about arson have been somewhat exaggerated by certain outlets but it's not uncommon which is despicable frankly; the bigger problem is our current PM and his stance on climate change tbh (I'm actually going to a protest rally on friday to let him now how aussies feel about this whole mess).
1. For some odd reason, there are duplicate categories for anime episodes that I don't recall being established. I believe only one is necessary unless there is a bona fide reason for the second being present. The first category is listed as: Season X/Title of Season. The second is listed as Episodes/Name of Season. Which is these do you want to keep and which do you feel should be eliminated? I don't mind doing the clean up work as long as we agree on which one to keep.
2. Outside of the List of Episodes, All Pages and the cat list at the top of articles, Episode Titles do not indicate their place in the franchise order. This can be highly confusing for readers who need a quick way to establish this info without going to "List of Episodes" and scrolling through its entirety to find the episode's placement. With so many episodes to track, a quick numeric in front of the title may be in order at this point. Not only would it assist readers, but it would list the episodes in chronological order in the overall listings. For example: One Style Final is Episode 7 of Season One but does anyone know that off the top of their head? I doubt it. However, naming the episode 0107 One Style Final gives it a definite place in the order of things. I've done this on the Psycho Pass wiki and it really helps to keep the eps in sequential order. What do you think?
1. Hmmm, I'll have a look at our previous categorization focused threads and see how that could've happened, but in terms of personal preference I'd rather keep Episodes/Season Name, how about you? Once we decide I'm happy to help clean up the episodes too
2. I think this is an issue that was brought up once before and we decided that it would make the article titles overly long, hence we made sure to add them to the categories on each page to make it clear what their episode number is in the context of both the individual season and the series as a whole. A possible work around I've seen implemented on other wikis for similar cases (as well as for times when a character might be better known by a nickname but their article name is their full proper name) is to create redirects so that if someone typed "Episode 7" into the search bar it would automatically bring up "one style final". Do we think that could be workable?
I agree with you on Episodes/Season Name as that seems more clear-cut. I've taken care of eliminating the other listing from the episode pages.
As for the second item...we did agree at one point not to add numerics, but I believe that was prior to S3 beginning. I know other wikis use redirects frequently but I'd rather steer clear of them. Titling wasn't one of our Wiki Review questions, but we can raise it if/when our wikimates return. In the meantime, I'm going to add a list of episodes to each season's general page and link the titles. That, at least, will minimize search time.
So...tell me about the trip. What was the biggest surprise? The worst thing? The best? Anything else you care to share...please.
I think adding it to the discussion list is a good idea, and the episode lists on each seasons page in the meantime also sounds good, I'm happy to help with that since you took care of the previous issue
Hmm... I'm not sure if there were any surprises really thankfully haha, the worst part was probably lack of sleep/health issues getting in the way of fully enjoying certain days but it was worth it overall. The best part was definitely being able to see my favorite band live (the whole reason for the trip truth be told lol), they only hold one concert a year and the venues are small so getting a ticket is a pretty competitive affair (I entered the lottery 14 times and only one of those entries actually won) so its a miracle i got to go at all ^^
How has your holiday season been? Is winter treating you well?
Happy for you that you got to see your fave band. I'm sure that was a highlight and something you will always remember.
No worries about adding the eps. I simply copied over the seasonal charts from the List of Episodes onto the appropriate page. Easy peasy and it looks good, too.
The holiday was fine but I'm tuckered out. I'll be watching my grandson for the next few days while mom and dad get away for a bit but he's no trouble and we'll have some fun times together.
Have also been marathoning The Ancient Magus' Bride and enjoying it very much. Have you seen it? It's a 2017 anime but I never can keep up with everything that comes out so it takes me awhile to get to everything I want to see and much of it leaves me cold. This particular story, otoh, has a story that intrigued me from the start.
Aww nice that you get to spend time with your grandson, I'm sure he'll have a great time ^^
I saw the first couple of episodes while it was airing, but since that was a pretty busy anime season I sidelined it in favor of other things since it didn't interest me as much, but glad to hear you're enjoying it, always nice to find new shows to binge watch
Don't know what you celebrate but wishing you well at this holiday time of year. How was the trip to Japan?
As for the wiki, I've begun working on the novelizations. I've had some issues with categorization but decided to only list the subcats under the category directly above which is what I think we decided to do, right? That, versus listing every cat that falls above the article? Or do we list all the cats? I don't recall and you seem to have a good memory.
Also, I wanted to ask you about proper Japanese etiquette when writing about an individual after their demise. Are they referred to in the present or past tense? I want to be respectful of their custom re: Futoshi Nishiya and Yasuhiro Takemoto. Might you know?
Anyway, I'll be working on those books over the next few weeks. Just wanted to let you know.
Happy holidays to you as well, the trip was fantastic thank you! How's your snowy winter coming along?
Yep, except for the occasional exception we agreed upon previously that only direct predecessors categories were necessary (for the exact exceptions you need to look up the previous convo threads unfortunately) so as to avoid over-categorizing everything/redundant categories
Unfortunately I haven't been made aware of much etiquette in this regard, only really basic stuff, but also due to the grammatical structure of Japanese it lacks tense (& pronouns) a lot of the time except for specific actions (ie. "I bought something" as opposed to "I will buy something"). So, I think it would probably be fine to write in past tense especially if it pertains to their role in a completed project (ie. "Nishiya was the artist for *insert title here*"), but maybe give it a google just to be sure
ok, sounds good to me but keep in mind we still have some group consensus' to reach regarding the novels so some of your work may get changed accordingly depending on what we end up deciding in the end
Understood, but you might want to look over some of the cats you worked on just to be sure I didn't change something we agreed upon earlier. I went through Media and removed it from a few items that seemed to "jump" over cats to be included and that just seemed weird. The end goal, as I see it, is to have a cascade of categories so a user can move from the "trunk" to a "branch" to a smaller "branch" etc. (with the exceptions noted). Angelle 16:08, December 24, 2019 (UTC)
Will do, but from what I could see it looked good, as for the "jumping" cats that may have been my bad ie. forgetting a cat came before a different one and then not rearranging them into the proper order so apologies for that (if I've understood the issue correctly that is)
Just a heads up that I was poking about the Starting Days pages and noticed a category called Authors that had no description and no other content but one page - Kouji Ohji - so I deleted it as superfluous. IDK who created it, maybe even me at some point, but if you feel we should keep it, we can restore it and give the cat page a description. I'm thinking now that maybe we should keep it, but let me know your thoughts.
Hope you're enjoying your warming/hot? weather. We just had our first winter storm, if you can call it a storm. People in the NY metro area are such babies when it comes to weather. A few inches of snow and they act like they're going to be snowed in for weeks without food or electricity. I don't get it, but whatever. It's pretty and I like snow as long as I don't have to shovel it, which I do since my dog doesn't do the honors.
Btw, where exactly are you on the western coast of Oz? It is the west coast, eh?
Going over the history of the page it seems you were the one to add the authors category, given it came after creative staff i suspect that it may have come from the cat tree and we just never put any info on the author category page/we currently dont have any other articles (that im aware of) that belong in that category. I think if there are other sub categories under creative staff such as artist/director/producer etc. then an author/writer one is only fair, but if it was the only distinctive sub-cat of that type then it may be superfluous as you said
Not particularly lol, I hate hot weather and its sitting around 40 degrees celsius here for the next few days so im patiently waiting for the end of the week when im off to tokyo where its snowing ^^ Ooo that sounds so lovely (even if some of the others in the area may not think so), well except for the snow shovelling of course
Yep I'm on the west, I split my time between the capital city (perth) and a rural town a couple of hours outside of the city
Ah. Happy travels if I don't speak to you before then. What made you choose to go in December? Biz or fun? Either way, be sure to visit Hachiko and have some bubble tea at a rabbit-cafe (or a hedgehog cafe) with me in mind. Cat-cafes are sooo over. :p Angelle 18:01, December 3, 2019 (UTC)
I see you're adding episode images which is great. I would like to tackle adding images from the many Openings and Endings (just the music) as a project, if that's ok with you. I'm starting with DttF. If you want to work up a different series or movie, just say so. We have some images for Rin but not so much for anybody else (I think). I'll start tomorrow which is your today. So, according to Einstein, we're virtual time travelers. Isn't science grand?
But before I begin, let me ask you...Do you think we should add the images as a stand-alone collection with all media together OR add O&Es to each individual group with an identifying caption? Let me know your thoughts before I get too far into posting, ok?
The poll is up and running and I'm currently rewatching DttF. It's interesting what you notice in a second go-round. Different lines stand out, other features of the animation (for better or worse), a particular actor's way of presenting their character. It's more technical for me, but equally entertaining.
I haven't been adding any new images, I've been working from the oldest added images to the newest and adding images to the relevant galleries if they were missing for some reason or another, but I think adding stills from the openings and endings would be good (I know Makoto's gallery also has quite a few from s1 and 2 but everyone besides him and Rin don't have many if they have any at all
If you mean adding different sections for each o/e per season then i think that's a reasonable idea as well, putting both the opening and ending images for each season together in a gallery before the first episode of each respective season (im assuming that was what you meant? if not please clarify)
Glad to see the poll is doing well, and yeah rewatching things always lend themselves to noticing things you never saw the first time around (I must confess I haven't actually finished DttF for a first time yet, but ive watched ES at least four times lol)
