Hello Mai, So Fluid layout it's coming whether anyone wants it or not, or so it appears. I have no idea how this will affect this Wiki and trust that you have the technological skills to handle the changeover. From what I've read, it seems that many sites won't be radically affected but many others *will* be tossed on their head. WikiaCC is offering help, but I have to leave this "seachange" to you. I hope we don't get hammered. Supposedly, this change is supposed to make things "easier." It's been my experience that *that* is never the case -- different, yes; easier, no. But whatever. If I *can* help, you know that I will. I just don't know how much help I can be with the graphic design stuff - not my forte. Let's keep our fingers crossed ::sigh::
Hi Mai and Happy Monday to you! Just curious as to whether you'll be moving over to the Fluid format once it becomes available. Seems like we have enough input to make a changeover and it also looks as if it will offer Chat, if that's something you want. I like chat as long as the threads are visible to all and don't become havens for cliques. Can you tell I work with teens who have cyberbullying perfected to an art? So...I'm very aware and very cautious about that sort of thing. Anyway...if we don't go Fluid, I'm ok with that, too. As always, your call.
P.S. If at any time you feel comfortable to add a co-admin, I'm available. I'm not very techno-savvy, but I'm vigilant and dedicated to the effort. Just letting you know. Angelle.
Hello. I actually don't know that much about the fluid format, but I don't have anything against it, so if that's what other people want, I would change it when it becomes avalible. Chat is also already avalible with this layout, so I could inable that now, if that's what everyone else wants. You can also block people with chat so they can't go on anymore, if cyberbullying becomes a problem.
And I gave you admin rights ^^ I can't be on this wiki that much, so it's always good to have somelse who can. So you can now delete pages and ban users. Just message me if you need anyhelp.
!OH! Was not expecting that. Can you direct me to where I can learn the basics? I'd also like to know how I go about using admin rights (like the ones you mention above). I just want to take a look as I'm new to this. As for chat....let's hold on that until I get a bit more comfy with the admin rights, k? ::see me still in shock:: I'm delighted to work with you on this. :D
I'm going to start changing over the character names, but don't know how to change the names of the pages, yet. If you could take care of that, that would be great. Hope we don't have to do a redirect, but if we do, we do. If you need help with the Viz Media spellings, let me know. The majors are simple enough -- Suoh instead of Suou; Kyoya instead of Kyouya (Ootori stays Ootori); Ryoji instead of Ryouji. Not sure about the rest but I can find out.
Mai, I know your original thought was to use the Japanese spellings for names, but considering that even Wikipedia uses the romanized versions, might you reconsider? I think this Wikia would be more user-friendly that way and attract more visitors. I will continue to abide by your decision as the admin; but since it seems that it's the anime that's a bigger draw, the simpler spellings and use of Honey and Mori for Mitsukuni and Takashi (except in titles or quotes) and spelling Kyouya Ootori as Kyoya Otori (as Wikipedia does), might hold greater appeal. As always, it's your call. I'm fine with either. Have a great day!
Sure, that'd be fine with me ^^ When I decided to use the Japanese's spelling, I didn't know that the official translation of the manga also uses the same spelling. Since it's used in both the manga and the anime it seems like they would be the more appropriate spellings.
Good morning Mai, wherever you are! You must be excited to see this Wiki growing; I know I am. When you get a chance, though, could you please help out some new members who have some great ideas for the manga pages, but seem to be creating separate pages instead of simply adding to the existing manga section. I'm sure it's because they're not sure how to do that (I know I don't). Nicole set it up, but she seems to be on hiatus and not responding to requests for help. I would help if I could, but I'm a bit techno-challenged in that regard although working on this Wikia has definitely improved those skills. So...thanks for that and hope to hear from you soon. ;D
I was wondering where you'd gone, but figured you have other wikias to tend to. But, yes. Dfm has been working on the manga section but doesn't know how to add to the pages Nicole set up (and neither do I!!) As for contributing...it's my pleasure and my obsession! ;D And it's your low key style that allows for us to do so, so thanks for that.
hello, i'm trying to help by creating the page for "volume 3" on this wiki. I was making trying to put a picture in a template "info-box" but the picture never shows up ! D: please help me. i don't what i;m doing wrong :(
Hi Mai, I figured out how to delete the unwanted category page (Go, me!) Now I need to figure out how to add a page to an existing category and move independent pages into category pages. I'm working on that.
Also...I want to ask if this wiki is going to use fan artwork or manipulated images. We have a few already, so a decision needs to be made to stay compliant with copyright laws.
That's good to hear ^^ This is a good page for help with categories, if you haven't read this before.
There shouldn't be any fan work/manipulated pages on actual pages, such as categories or character/episode/chapter pages. They shouldn't be uploaded on this wiki. Instead, they should just be linked to, so it isn't actually on the wiki.
