  • Greetings,

    I am one of the admins from the Bungo Stray Dogs Wiki. Since our wikia has started being active again we are interested in affiliating with other wikis. We were wondering if you would like to affiliate with us as it would be a big support to us.


    Regards

    Admins of the Bungo Stray Dog Wiki

  • Hello Gytis.

    As you can probably tell I'm new here and not very familiar with this wiki's standards. I don't quite understand what is required by "proper introduction". Would you be able to explain that please? Thanks in advance.

    • Yes, I've been around long enough to know everyone on the wiki and tell when someone new joins :P

      To answer your question, proper introduction refers to context that helps identify which event you are talking about. This context is usually the exact date of the event (see Timeline for known dates) or an explanation of when the event takes place in relative to other events (e.g., three days after [insert event here]). This allows others to track down which specific event you are referring to. Especially when you do not provide appropriate chronology sub-headings.

      On a side note, I've noticed that you undid ZeHaffen's undo of your previous edit. For future reference, such an action is considered to be a breach of wiki etiquette and will likely get you into trouble and/or on someone's bad side. If you disagree with the reason why your edit was undone, the first thing you should do is to message the editor either on their wall or on chat to discuss the issue. Only when a mutual agreement/compromise is made can you redo the edit with the appropriate corrections. If you can't come to an agreement, you could request an admin to intervene and break the tie. Either way, redoing the edits without making appropriate corrections can cause unnecessary edit wars and conflicts, thus please try to solve issues diplomatically.

      P.S. This wiki has a Discord server, where the majority of the community gathers to socialise. I highly recommend joining us, as it'll be an easier way of getting help and learning how the wiki works.

    • Okay I see. I didn't know about the timeline page. The episodes I was basing the information on didn't include a date so I wouldn't have known what to put there. Thanks for the explanation.

      I'm sorry about that. I've apologized to him. I wasn't sure if he checked his message wall since he didn't respond to the last reply I left there. But I will not do such a thing again.

      Ok, I probably will join at some point. :)

    • He usually checks his messages, but when he's busy, he may miss a message. All the more reason to join us on Discord - most of us keep more of an eye on Discord than wiki messages, especially since Discord is available as an app on phones. ;)

      If you don't get a response from the user in a timely manner, you could always ask an (another) admin to intervene and help resolve the issue so as not to drag the matter on too long.

    • I see. Alright, but I don't think I can today. I'll see you there when I do.

      Ok, thanks again for the answers :)

  • Hi. Charlotte seems to be a very obvious reference to Charlottes Web. As both are spiders and both are named charlotte, and both have wisdom to help others.

    I believe that fact should be included as trivia on her page. I mean after all, a lot of the other places and people are named after mythological characters or different stories. So its pretty reasonable to assume that Charlotte the spider is based on Charlottes Web.

    • The keyword here is "assume". We cannot allow assumptions, especially ones on such dubious grounds, on the wiki. We are a wiki - a place where people come to get facts, not speculation, no matter how sound that speculation sounds.

  • Just curious, what other articles did we feature on the homepage in the past? I just would rather not have any accidental repeats when time comes to change the featured article for a new one, so it could be helpful if a list of previously featured articles was compiled for the archives, like on one or two other wikis I've seen.

  • Excuse me, Gsimenas, where is the page 008 colored illustration for Volume 11? I've looked through the wiki and can't seem to find it anywhere. Also, I've checked the Yen Press translation thereof and noticed that the content therein is different from that of the Volume 10 page 008 colored illustration, so I don't think we have to worry about it being an exact duplicate if we need to upload a new copy to the wiki. Unfortunately, I don't know where to find an original, good quality raw image of the page, so I can't upload it myself.

  • Hi Gsimenas,

    I'm contacting you as you are the most recently active admin.

    I just posted a blog post about Volunteer Curators here on Sword Art Online Wiki and I'm wondering if it'd be ok with you and the rest of the admin team if I posted a community message about it (like a site-wide message, but just for this wiki). We're hoping to attract anime news fanatics to help round out our anime coverage on Fandom.com .

    Thanks!

  • Excuse me, I've noticed the Aincrad Arc characters on the Official Naming page are the only ones who have their chronological debut listed. Shouldn't the characters from the other arcs/side stories have their debut listed, too? And should some of the characters have their publication release debut as well (e.g. Asuna noted to have first appeared in Volume 1, Chapter 5, release-wise, and Progressive Volume 1, Aria of a Starless Night, Part 1, chronology-wise), so as to not confuse those who've only read the main series? As for the Reference Guideline...since you finished translating and proofreading Hopeful Chant, the references for that could be added to the Guidelines now, as well as the prologue for Sisters' Prayer and the chapter parts for Calibur SS. Plus, I think the references for Volume 9, Prologue II need some fixing; their display text is listed as Volume 9, Prologue I. And when can one add a # to a reference, like with Volumes 1-7?

    • would deprive you of even five minutes to rectify a missing grammar symbol or misspelled word

      I still do that if I come across something accidentally. But only what I come across while doing other stuff. I don't have time to be intentionally looking for errors.

      but I'll take your word that I've been severely depriving you of any opportunity for adding new pages.

      Just take a look at all the Alicization and Progressive content that has yet to get articles. The former's progress got stuck at volume 15, the latter doesn't have the latest novel (and various stuff from the others) covered, even though it was released nearly a year ago. Who do you think covers content like that? How many people have you seen creating in-universe content articles?

      As for the massive edit on Volume 8...I didn't really anticipate how big it would be.

      As usual. You never learn your lesson. If you lack the capabilty of gauging how big your content gets, at least have the decency to publish it in parts, instead of all in one go because I certainly won't be busy with a hundred of other things beside your wall of text. </sarcasm> Though I'm not sure what part of six paragraphs doesn't seem like a lot to you, when I told you to keep to one paragraph a day at most.

      I wanted to resume my light novel summary editing without them taking as long last time; my work on Progressive Volume 2 took me three and a half months

      And why do you think it took you so long? That didn't even qualify as a summary; it was a retelling. It's at least twice as big as any proper summary. Which means half of the time you spent on it was a complete waste. Wait no, it wasn't a complete waste. It did succeed in ensuring that I will be busy with the page for just as much time (if not more) going through all that unnecessary content. So, half the time you spent on it will be twice the waste of time. There's a reason why I told you to limit your content - to learn the lesson that you need to cover as much content in as few words as possible while still making sense. That sole lesson would have saved you half the time you spent on that retelling. And you have yet to learn it.

      left my self-restraint a bit rusty

      I'll employ my own self-restraint to refrain from commenting on how annoyed I am with that "a bit" part.

      Why is it that I seem to get into trouble with you every other week?

      Maybe because you never realise how much of a burden you're putting on other people when you keep piling tons of unnecessary work on them just because you can't spend more of your own time on quality control? If you would like to know just how much work that is, I recommend the following: go back to Progressive v2 and cut that "summary" at least in half, while making sure that it still makes sense and covers the major plot points. That would be a start.

    • Sorry about all that; stubbornness runs very deep in my family from both sides, and I can be rather slow to change. Also, I suppose I've been getting impatient with my progress. When I first joined, I figured I'd be finished with all the major articles in need of improvement within a year; loking back on it now, I grossly underestimated how much work and time would be needed for everything, and it made me anxious to get the job done sooner. I'm not sure about cleaning up Progressive Volume 2 at the moment; I'm rather reluctant to severely reduce all the information I've put into it, and I've little confidence in my editing skills. As I said on my profile page, my mastery of the English language is far from complete. Plus, I'm worried I might go too far on cutting the paragraphs and leave the page with extremely sparse details like with some of the other articles, which is why, I think, I started getting getting overboard on summaries in the first place. Maybe I'll look at it next month. In the meantime, perhaps I should consider taking a break from the wiki; if I'm not too careful, contributing to it will become more of a chore rather than an enjoyable hobby, and it should give you and the other moderators and admins more time to finally finish going through my contributions without me adding more to your plate.
