The canon source material are the light novels, not the anime. And yes, in the novels, it was an undisputable victory for Yuuki, Kirito got defeated without any senseless addition like the timer running out for a counter attack. In the novels, Kirito got utterly defeated.
Just read the request from ZeHaffen, and he told me to talk to you about his qualifications, just going on his SAO wikia profile 2 months of activity, and edits pertaining to ogg. he may have his niche but since you've probably worked with him I want your opinion. already asked Gsimenas as well
The reason for the Image Gallery was for characters with a lot of images. Godfree, for example did not have many appearances that we felt needed a new page. But then there are characteres with several images.
So the rule is: If they have more than 3 or 4 images, make a subpage for the character; otherwise just put the gallery under a "Image Gallery" heading.
We only have separate gallery pages for characters that have more than 5 images available for a gallery (because galleries for characters tend to get really big). For all other pages, we just add the galleries on the article itself, since it's not worth making separate gallery pages for them. For example, http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/Divine_Dragon_Alliance#Gallery is how a gallery is done for a guild. If you wish to add guild images or images for characters that don't have more than five pictures (Godfree, for example), you can just make a gallery like that.
It really doesn't matter whether you use underscores or spaces when uploading images. The wiki will handle them the same way. Though it is preferred to space words one way or the other to keep the name less cluttered.
Just because one guild has a lot of pictures doesn't mean that all the others do. I haven't seen your images, so I'm not sure what kind of images you are planning to add to the guild gallery, but guild galleries should only have images of the guild as a whole or a group of guild members (e.g. http://swordartonline.wikia.com/wiki/File:KOB_members.png), not individual members. Individual member pictures should be used for the known member table and character galleries.
If you took the time to do a bit of research you would find the Elucidator only has that cross in two places throughout any of the sources. Both are within the manga and most every shot of the Elucidator in the manga exlcudes that part of the blade. The few scenes its actually shown it is either missing or in one instance it is poorly drawn on it, almost as if it was an afterthought. The first instance is just some concept art thrown at the front of the manga that explains the characters, i havent found an eglish translation of said page so i dont know what that description says. The anime makes zero references to this cross in any of the shots of it, opening and ending credits both show it does not exist on it, especially in the scene where the Elucidator gets detailed shots without any motion it is not shown. The Light Novel makes no mention of said cross when it is described. Even the games do not have the cross on the blade. The rest of the images that do contain said cross appear to be all fan art. To me there is a vast amount of evidence against the cross being on there and only one source that puts it on there.
If i sound like an ass in this message i apologize for it coming across that way, it is not my intention. Also my first edit did not remove that line but stated its abscence in one source, not including the other sources. Apologies for getting a bit irrational and deleting that line after, was silly of me to do. At this point it doesnt really matter to me if the wiki states it correctly or not as most wikis have tons of flaws and i, for some reason, pay attention to all the dumb little details.
The description of the Elucidator is based on the rough character design art drawn by the illustrator of the light novels and character designer for the series, abec (posted on the illustrator's blog http://abec.blog93.fc2.com/blog-entry-36.html). The author of the novels only gives a minor description of the characters and their items. The actual design of the characters and items is created by abec and the rough character design art linked above is the only instance of the Elucidator being drawn by the illustrator. According to the rules of the wiki, in the case of conflict between two sources, the higher priority source is considered to be canon. As the anime is an adaptation, the light novel's illustrator's design of the sword is considered to be the canon version on the wiki.
As the current description of the sword is based on a rough design which may or may not have been changed later on, we may add a clarification that the cross is present in design art. But it cannot be removed from the description unless abec or Kawahara confirm that the cross was scrapped.
So, upon researching nerve gear, I've sttumbled upon a question. This wiki says that NerveGear cuts off all transmissions from the brain to the body and vice-versa, but would that kill a person? Wouldn't this stop the person from breathing because their autonomic system would stop transmitting information to and from the brain. The only other way I see them living is by an alternate source.
Yes it would, but the NerveGear doesn’t necessarily intercept all transmissions from the brain. According to Kirito in Volume 1 on page 11 in the English translation the NerveGear “intercepted and collected the brain’s commands to the body”. This sounds to me like the NerveGear is designed to only intercept “conscious signals” from the brain, “subconscious signals” like breathing and heart beat would therefore be allowed through. Of course this is only my interpretation of a translation, can anyone back this up with a Japanese copy?
The Japanese version of that sentence is 脳から自分の体に向けて出力される命令をも遮断・回収されるのだから。 Although Yen Press omitted some of the words, the meaning is pretty much the same. However, that's not the part that you should be looking at. The real problem is page 35 of the Japanese version (page 18 of Yen Press)
To realise the FullDive environment, the NerveGear completely cancels the command signals for moving our bodies that our brain sends down our spinal cord and, in exchange, converts them to signals needed to move our bodies in this world. So however wildly we swing our arm about here, the arm of my real body, lying on my bed right now, wouldn't move a bit, ensuring that I wouldn't run into the corner of my table and bruise myself.
I reused the fan translation, accounting for some translation errors. The Yen Press version is a bit different, since they change "body" to "limbs" among other changes. Anyway, the problem is that the fan translation wasn't really accurate, since it omitted the 体を動かす part. The raw is only referring to signals for body movement. It doesn't mention the autonomic nervous system. Though I wonder why the medulla oblongata part is omitted in both the fan translation and Yen Press version. Could a later reprint have changed that part?
On a side note, the heart doesn't really need impulses from the brain to work. Heart beats are generated by the sinuatrial node in the heart itself. The brain is only needed to reduce or increase the heart beat rate via sympathetic or parasympathetic stimulation of the sinuatrial node.
