  • If I spot anyone touching the templates especially not telling us in advance why, I'll refer to you from now on.

    • That's alright, Taka, don't worry about it. In case I miss anyone messing with the code, you can poke me on Discord, and I will take a look into it. :)

  • It's better you weren't online during this month. We had some mishaps (little too personal and I wouldn't want you to deal with it since it might be heart breaking), but I manage to take care of it with help of Luis, Dragon Nesha and a Wikia Staff member. It's thanks to them for their support.

    • Alright, cool. I did want to come online, but the old provider made us return all the equipment (modems and such) and the new one didn't bring theirs yet, so we were kind of in a limbo. All is well and working now, though. I hope things around here have been okay? Anything that I can help with?

    • Oh I see. That's unfortunate with your internet providers. They didn't give you good service.

      I did find a case for us. I don't read Adventure of Sinbad (which I should sometime), I found Sense Scans has Serendine's name as Celendine or something with a "C." Just wanted to hear your thoughts on it. I know the Wikia mostly uses Sense Scans names but I don't know how recent they change the name. I could have sworn I saw "Serendine" or so early.

    • I see. We will have to be careful, because I think we should be consistent with her name, and the name of her brother. So, if we go with Serendine, then the young prince should be Seiran (and if she's Celendine, then he should be Ceylan).

      I will go through the old chapters of AoS and see how they're calling her there, and compare it to the new chapters, to see if they are using the same translation, or if it has changed over time.

  • what are your thoughts on this category? I was thinking it was probably just as useless as slave traders and thieves.

  • I actually finished my business on my home site with the best 2016 anime/manga series. I can do the chapter summaries. I'll make them a bit longer than what I usually do if you like me too.

    That way, I cut your workload in half.

    • If you've got the time to do them, I'd be happy if you helped me with them. Now that I am back, I should have more time for the Wikia as well, so I will be back on track with my usual work, too.

      Thanks a lot for the help, Taka.

  • One of our wiki editors who is knowledgeable with Arabic names told me about this name change: http://magi.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:20047

    Do you wish just to update the Trivia or do you want me to site wide name change? It shouldn't be a massive task compare to the Judal to Judar and other character names task that NatiChan and ManikWorld had undertaken.

    Where did you find those heights? I went on the reference. I remember the pics were blurred for some reason.

    Oh yeah, thanks for fixing it. I wasn't sure how I or others mistake it earlier.

    Then we can upload the image in their galleries which help reinforce the ref

  • Just to let you know, I work backwards since you're doing the new chapter summaries. Right now, I have to do the Magi chapter summaries for Ch. 300-330 in Anime Vice Wikia. Since I have the same job in two different Wikias, I cannot show any preference over the other. I'm pretty loyal to that Wikia. I have to rewrite everything from scratch to avoid plagiarising my own work or yours or others. Once I finish that, I continue backlogging.

    I assure I can keep my word since I promised ManikWorld that I finish season 1 episode summaries. I did that.

    • Hey, Taka.

      Yeah, that's okay, don't stress over work on Magi wikia, do as much as you can, when you can. I will stick to writing chapter summaries for the new chapters as they come out, and aside from that, I'm slowly completing that list of characters. You can do chapter summaries prior to chapter 300, or perhaps the episode summaries like you mentioned. Either is okay.

  • If you like to discuss and share your opinions .

    The original rules for the Readmore template is after 5-7 paragraphs, we would use it to condense all the paragraphs afterwards to cut down and streamline the page in a sense.

  • I know different Wikias have different approaches to them. Some won't add them, some add them on a list, some add them when they have speaking credited, some add them for parents.

    Right now, we don't have a rule on these characters. That's why you don't see any of us old wiki editors adding them because they were so minor.

    I honestly don't see a need to add unnamed examiner or Al-Thamen's Magician. since they will always be stub pages. We can't add much because they are so insignificant. I'll ask Dancing Fairy and Natichan on what they think. I'm up for adding Tiare's parents together or separate characters for both mom and dad; however, we won't have much for them. 

    Edit:

    What are your views on the approaches for these nameless characters?

    • Thank you for bringing this up, Taka! I was going to have a discussion about it with you eventually, but I suppose it's best to do it sooner rather than later.

      Yes, different Wikias indeed have different views on what to do with these less significant characters. Currently, I'm going through the anime slowly, and making screenshots of all characters that appear, whether they are significant, or not so much. That way, I am ensuring that I'm not missing any of them, as I go through. I added them to the list of characters that I'm compiling in my Sandbox, which I believe will eventually become the remastered Characters page.

      Now, my view is as follows: - I do not think that such minor, non-substantial and unnamed characters should get their own pages, because you are completely right in saying that it would just be a small, stub page that wouldn't get much information. Some wikias (like Fairy Tail) do it, but I honestly don't see much point in that. - On the other hand, I think that the list of all Characters could contain the images of all characters, even the less significant ones. That way, people can see all the characters that appeared in the manga/anime. If they want to know more about a major character (for example, Sinbad), they can click on their picture and they will be redirected to their page. They won't be redirected anywhere by clicking on minor character pages, though.

      There was also something else that I considered, but I'd like you to tell me your thoughts on that. Currently, I programmed the list so that if you click on one of the boxes at the top (Active, Defected, Deceased...), it will show/hide characters with that status. I think that's a good way of filtering characters. Now, I could make it so that the list would show only prominent characters by default; and if you wanted to see all characters, you'd click a little button, and it would show you those minor ones as well. That way, the list wouldn't be immediately clogged with these minor, insignificant characters, but only show the major ones, and then only if you wanted, you could see the rest as well.

      Thoughts?

    • Oh you already making a list, so we don't have to make a separate list of nameless characters. That's a smart idea, Mell. I never thought it that way. 

      The status filter sounds cool. I did find Aladdin being repeated in certain arcs was a bit strange, but I realize you wanted to show changes like Aladdin, Aladdin (Magnostadt) - since he changed his outfit, and then so et cetera 

        Loading editor
    • That was exactly my idea! And it is not only good to see how a certain character changed (getting older, different outfits,..), but also what factions he was affiliated with through the series (for example, Aladdin was a guest in Sindria, a magician student in Magnostadt,..). That way, the list wouldn't show only the last affiliation of a character, but all their previous affiliations. It is then easy to make a filter, that toggles between showing only the current affiliation/appearance of a character (that way, all characters in the list are unique), and all affiliations of characters, if we decide to do so.

  • Lately, I notice the site and only this site has been lagging, specifically on character pages such as Aladdin. It freezes on Fire Fox and Google Chrome for me. I visited my home wikia and the other Wikias I'm affiliated with in mutual alliances. I had no trouble with them.

    • That's odd. It shouldn't really be lagging because of page length, and it's weird that it would suddenly start to lag, and it wasn't before.

      Can you check, if it's still lagging for you if you try to open it on another computer? That'd be a quick way to find out whether it's your current computer or the site.

    • Sorry, I don't have a 2nd computer or laptop. It's okay. It just takes 1 to 2 minutes waiting time to access the site.
