I'm all for uniformity throughout - looks more "put together." I've been trying to do that with the eps, but I have to look into how templates work. I'm a learn-as-you-go type of person so I'm not sure how to do that, but I'll look into it. Are you okay with what I did with Ch1 of the manga summary? I didn't want to alter your text too much (unless you want that), but I fixed some stuff and created paragraphs where they seemed most natural. I've seen the anime dozens of times but only read the manga once. Let me know how closely, if at all, you want to collaborate with them. Have a great day!
The episodes all look really good together, but it's just maybe if the manga and anime both have templates, it will look more neater on the wiki ^.^ And yeah, thank you so much for editing the summary, it was really good :)
Just a note to say hi. How does one create a template? I think the format in place for the anime eps covers a lot: Intro (with pic), Summary (with scattered pics), Gallery (with all summary pics and any others put into sequence -my next task), Notable Quotes (which should also be in sequence), Character Appearances (in order), Trivia and Episode Marker. If you can create a template page from that model, I'm good with it. I've added sections that were missing but I can't figure out how to add a "Contents" index to the eps that are missing that. Anyway...it's been a long day and I'm going to have some dinner.
BTW..you're welcome on the manga chapter. Keep it rolling.
I can't really explain how to 'make' one, but usually I just go to templates.wikia.com for templates.. Oh and yeah, I made a template yesterday for the episodes but it kind of resembles the manga template. It's here :) And Enjoy eating your dinner :)
You make sense, it's just that Nicole is the genius of page setup and templates. Contact her to see if she can help or if there's a template already available that you can use. She's the #2 contributor on this wiki and you can find her on the leaderboard as Queennicolee. Click on her name to get to her message wall and inquire. She's a nice gal.
It looks okay to me. Would it be okay with you if I do some punctuation clean-up? Your grammar and usage are fine, but there are a few minor things here and there. I won't change your text. Let me know if that's ok with you.
Also, except for appearing under Recent Wiki Activity, the volume isn't appearing under the Manga category where Vol 1 and Vol 2 already are listed. An icon link to Vol 3 should be added, but I don't know how to do that.
I just wanted to let you know that I'm currently working on the places template, clubs template and anime episodes template. I'm sorry that I didn't ask for your permission/opinion on the places and clubs template, because since I'm working on the anime episodes template, I wondered if putting a template infobox on the places and clubs would look nice too. Hope to hear from you soon :)
I noticed that there's a Ritsu Kasanoda category page , which seems to be not really necessary for this wiki. I checked the only option which is 'History' and found out that the category page was created way back in 2009. The problem is, there's not a 'delete' option on the edit button, and it seems that only admins can delete it.
It seems that Mai is currently inactive so I hope you could check it out :)
Hi, I was wondering if it would be appropiate to make a page called "Other Clubs"? I'm making a list of clubs mentioned throughout the manga, and a lot of them do not reveal enough information to be deserving of their own page, so I was wondering if I could group them together in one entry. I don't want to clutter the wiki with a lot of stubs.
I just finished the page and I added some pictures. I wasn't sure if I should give each club it's own header or categorize them. I also didn't know if I should try to add galleries or just single pictures. Right now, it looks a little messy. I will play around with it more later, or you can if you wish. I hope it's a decent starting point! :-)
I just took a look and it's a very good starting point. I'm wondering if there's a way to list them in a table format or tabular format. Ask Nicole or shoot a message to Mai. They're the graphics mavens.
And if anyone reading this under Wiki Activity knows how, let us know, too! All help is welcome!!
Do you think it will be a great idea if we put transcript section (all the dialouges) on the manga chapters? I think the manga chapters might be more detailed that way + it might be something some of the wiki visitors want to see. If the page ever gets messy, we could always create a new page like Chapter 1/Transcript :)
I think it's an awesome idea, but I'd prefer each chapter having a link either right at the start of the summary, the end of the summary or in the Infobox -- your call. The link would go to the page where the transcript would appear. That way, the chapter itself will be cleaner with easy access to the dialogues. And, of course, Transcripts will have to be created as a new category; but once done, Quotes can be eliminated altogether. There would have to be a sub-category for anime transcripts - subbed; anime transcripts - dubbed and manga transcripts. I love that, especially since I think so much of Ouran is quotable and Quotes always seem cluttered to me. Let's do one chapter and see how it looks, k? If it's good, I'll get started on the anime chapters.
This is time-intensive work, so if anyone out there is reading this and is interested in a big challenge, this is a great project for a team effort. Just let me know which chapter or episode you plan on transcribing and remember...it must be accurate or it's a goner.
Okay, then let's put the Transcript on the start of the summary :D And yep, Quotes are unnecessary if we put Transcripts on every chapters and anime episodes. I'm currently working on Chapter 1 Transcript now, I'll notify you when it's done :) I could also help out with the Anime dubbed episodes, once I finished the chapters :)
Thought I responded to this but then I couldn't find it, so I'm posting again. Helping out with any of the transcripts would be fine; however, I would prefer the links to the transcripts for the anime eps to be placed just beneath the brief blurb that sits beside the infobox: one link for dubbed transcript; one link for subbed transcript. And we should use the scripts found on Funimation's website since that's the outlet Viz Media chose for American release. I'll beta the transcripts (just like the chapters) as we go along, if that's alright with you.
Hi! I finished recreating the infoboxes for Kaoru, Honey and Mori. Though, I cannot find the exact same picture Kaoru and Honey had. And I kind of re-created Kaoru's page. Unlike before, it can be now edited in "Visual Mode". :D
S'me, Angelle. For the time being, the main character boxes are locked because of vandalism. When they reopen, you can add trivia. If you want text to appear now, just post it in Reply and I will add it asap. For the record: locking pages is a standard feature of all wikias for highly trafficked areas or areas that are tempting to vandals. It's unfortunate that protection even has to be the case, but trolls need to know that this wikia isn't a playground for idiocy of the unsavory kind. General idiocy of the fandom type is, however, encouraged. Your patience and understanding is appreciated. :)
Sure! And if you can find other vids for the songs, please add them. I absolutely love the Guilty Beauty Love vid. As for other vids, that's another area that needs additions - just make sure to post them in the Videos area. There are some really great ones; I just don't have time right now as I'm immersed in writing the next chapter to Clueless in Ouran. In fact, I know you have a list of pages that need attention, but I'm not sure the genpop sees that. If you send me a text list, I'll post it in the forum, highlighted, for all to see OR we can add a link on the Main Page that leads directly to the list so visitors who want to contribute can do so in areas that really need contributions. What do you think?
