I’m new to this site and would like to help out with edits such as fixing small continuity and grammatical errors, yet many of these pages are unable to be edited. I’m not sure if this is intended to keep me out or if it is just my trash fire computer ability but I’d love your help if possible!
Hi. Tsuminohime is currently inactive, so I will answer for her. I hope that's fine?
All except a few pages can be edited by logged-in users - sometimes if you have a brand new account or just joined a Wikia, it may take a few days until you can edit them though. So, which pages do you mean which you want to edit but cannot? It's easier for me to help you if you are a bit more specific.
Bringing the discussion to you, since I have faith that you will be coming back soon for the Chapter 129 thread.
I would like to remove the anime synopses entirely. No one maintains them, or adds to them, the grammar is atrocious, and references are scarce. They simply clutter our pages for no good reason. Ever since Book of Circus, I believe it has been an implied rule that, unless they are an anime-only character, we do not need to write about what they do. It is difficult and pointless to go through every episode just to document every character's actions, especially nowadays, with everyone so busy. We may as well remove them all and clear up some space. Thoughts?
Additionally, for the latest chapter, I referred to the second Ciel as "Ciel." I figured we can work with that for now to distinguish between the two Ciels. Are you fine with it, or would you like to use something else?
Hey Doggy!!! Hahaha, ofc I would come back (esp coz Chapter 129 was a really important chapter)!! You should comment again on the thread once Lau writes it up :)
Yeh, I think that's the best solution too. No one has the time to fill them out and I would prefer our articles to not have them at all, rather than having incomplete sections which kinda triggers my perfectionist tendencies - seeing the incomplete tag is a lowkey eyesore on the occasion that I look at the articles anyway. Like maybeeee one day, if we have to, we can always reintroduce them (in Anime-Manga Differences? Idk) coz some users/viewers might want everything to be covered on the wiki, but tbh I agree with what you mentioned - I don't see any particular need in them being there either and as of now anyway, nobody's really wanted them to be completed lol.
Let's use Real!Ciel I'm fine with keeping it as "Ciel" for now, since I can't really think of any better alternative.
Yes please let's get rid of 'em, they're SUPER ANNOYING and like Tsu said a lowkey eyesore, I really hate the incomplete tag too, they majorly detract from the reading experience. Though I can't speak for her, I'm pretty damn sure Momo will be on board with this, so let's start removing them asap. (Lol that poor Anime-Manga differences page, hopefully someone will have the ambition to fill it out 'cuz I sure don't.) Anything that's not the manga aka the source material is not worth slaving ourselves over writing summaries about (esp with all of the confusing filler). We all have our life obligations to deal with and there's no way in hell the anime will ever be a priority during our tenure here. Don't I sound smart using the word tenure?
So I was in the mood today and started deleting all the anime's synopses. I think I got to them all. While we're on the subject of deletion, I was wondering if several minor characters really do need pages of their own. I'm just going to list 'em, and we'll decide whether to keep them or delete them.
Out of this group, Mathilda and Mary are definitely the most irrelevant, so if we have to keep the ghost brothers and the dude from the OVA (whose page is really bad), then we should get rid of the girls at least.
Oh good thinking! I think the Grim Reaper character articles could definitely be added onto the Grim Reaper page instead.
Character articles I think we should keep: Edward V, Richard, Thomas Wallis (yeh, his page is atrocious, but I think he was integral to William's character development, no? One day, it needs to be cleaned up though it's in severe need of it LOL OTL), Damian (Lol him and Cedric Brandel's roles are pretty much the same, either delete them both or keep them I guess)
Should delete: Prince Albert, Unnamed Lady, Mathilda Simmons, Mary Jane Kelly, Maria, James, Priest
Aaand I'm not sure about the rest lol, coz idk how strongly we want these articles to be deleted.
I think we should keep Thomas', Eric's, and Alan's pages and put the others together in a "Minor Characters" page.
Just like Tsuminohime said, Thomas was quite important for William's development. And I don't think we should include character bios in the Grim Reaper page. But if you want to delete Eric's and Alan's page, I think we should put the info on them on the musical page instead - just like the bios of the movie characters are on the movie page, and the ones of the game characters are on the game page.
Hmmm, I'm not too sure how a Minor Characters page could work out, coz are we just going to keep updating it whenever a minor character pops up in Kuro (and there will be a looot)? It's also likely we'll forget to keep adding to it which will make it out-of-date very quickly.
Yeh, that's alright too. I don't mind adding the bios to either the article or musical pages.
Is it okay if I translate your wikia to a spanish version? I'm fluent in both languages and have studied english for 10 years in a bilingual school (ASV ) as well as taking a third grade education in North Carolina. Also I speak spanish and english daily, both my parents are fluent in both languages.
I assume you are busy, but when you find the time, can you please check the kanji and romaji for Cloudia Phantomhive? We currently have it as クラウディア·ファントムハイヴ, Kuraudia Fantomuhaivu. A user says that it should beクローディア・ファントムハイヴ, Kurōdia Fantomuhaivu. The discussion can be found here. Thank you.
I checked various Japanese sources and apparently its supposed to be ザーシャ. Which I find weird coz what German name can be derived from 'Zasha'? I guess Sascha is the closest alternative.
Oh, I'm still on vacation, LOL. Sorry for not being able to do much the past few weeks coz I haven't had internet connection all the time and not much time either to go online but once I go back home I'll get access to internet everyday again *^*
