  • Please upload screenshots in standard resolutions. I assume you took your latest Ordinal Scale screenshots with a tablet or something, as you uploaded them in strange resolution. If that's the case, please use a PC or laptop to take a screenshot with a program like VLC. I'm not sure whether you were using Blu-rays for your screenshots, but the resolution of your images does give me the impression that your images might not be taken from quality footage.

    • Thanks. Those names are slightly more specific than what I would done. Perhaps that's why my naimg schemes are problematic; I'm rather hesistant on being too descriptive with file naming out of concern that I might end up with a excessively long, convoluted name. Anyway, maybe a stronger focus on the details in the images should help me out.

      By the way, has anyone managed to get a decent shot of the sword Kirito earned for defeating An Incarnation of the Radius? Such a powerful weapon deserves at least a mention on the Items page. Of course,  if anyone ever gets around to it, someone will probably have to set up measures to prevent more casual, uninformed fans from renaming it as Durandal before we get confirmation from Reki on the name.

    • Slightly longer but more specific names are always better than short but very vague names. A name shouldn't be a kilometre long, but it should refer to specific details/context of the image to prevent confusion with other scenes. There were multiple scenes of Yuna in Eiji's recollections, so your names didin't really help narrow it down. Of course, my names aren't perfect either, but at least they make it easier to tell which image is which in source mode.

  • Hey man! Really appreciate all the work you are putting into completing the Gameverse images! Though as a friendly suggestion, can you try streamlining your uploads/edits a little?

    For example, the last bunch of contributions seems to be on the theme "Bed Scenes", but the problem is, there are more than a dozen Bed Scenes with all different characters and if you go with a "Theme" categorization, it leads to more than a dozen edits concerning a single image on various different pages, which can be time consuming for those who are reviewing the content.

    Instead, if you categorize your uploads/edits based on "Characters" rather than "Themes", for example, uploading all Rain images in one go and putting all the necessary edits to a single bulk, would put much less workload overall onto those who review the content, since they will still be reviewing maybe more than a dozen Rain pictures, but they won't have to crawl through a dozen edits.

    Once again, thank you!

    • I'm not sure about basing mass image uploads around characters. Some of those pictures include characters other than the main one the the image is focused, and if I hold back on adding those photos to image galleries other than the one I'm prioritzing until I can get around to the target gallery later on (e.g., if a picture of Kirito includes Asuna and I wait for a mass photo upload revolving around Asuna to include the Kirito image in there), I might forget. Sorry if I don't sound particularly clear or eloquent here.

  • Hey,

    I'm not sure whether you read my last edit summary:
    [...]Don't remove the spaces on class names, it is best practice in webdev to quote even if the name does not have spaces in it.[...]
    Thus, I thought I'd use this chance to add some background information. I'm aware that aside from us technical admins not many know the implications of this,so please let me elaborate. When I speak of class names, I mean the part class="name". In the example of the article, the class name in
    <ref name="refname">[...]</ref>
    is refname.

    Functional it does not make any difference as long as this is one word (meaning one word without spaces). As soon as a space is in that name the quotes are mandatory. For web development it is therefore best practice to always include the quotes, to accomodate for possible name changes in the future to not break scripts and bots and to make processing easier. Whether a space is pre-/appended to the equality sign does not matter either.

    <ref name="refname" | name = "refname" | name= "refname" | name ="refname"/>
    are all eqivalent

    You do not need to change this on every single article now, I just wanted to give you some background info why they are included on most articles. I've written this on the assumption you used source mode., to save you the hassle of going over them unnecessarily, because changing them with each edit is really a time consuming process unless you automate this. In which case you should already be aware of this dilemma though :P

  • Just a reminder that if you're planning to spam images, at least do it in one edit, instead of 3 consecutive edits in a matter of minutes.

    • Hold on, how am I supposed to change the images' names? I thought only admins and bureaucrats had file renaming privileges. The best I can do is reupload the pictures under completely new names, but wouldn't that simply clutter up the image archive?

        Loading editor
    • No, you can't change file names yourself. That's for admins and content mods only. However, you can either reupload the images with new file names and ask mods to delete the old ones, or contact a mod with your new names and ask them to rename the files.

  • Could you please not make as many edits for a while? I know that you have been contributing to the wiki, but at this point, your edits are so frequent and bulky that it's interfering with Gsi's work. He can't make any more articles because of how much and how big your edits are. It would be a big help if you either slow down on how frequently you edit (idk if you still want to keep your daily edit counter up or not), or only write down what is essential for people to understand what is going on (NOT a retelling, but a summary). I'm only writing this because I am concerned for Gsimenas, so take it into consideration.

    • (winces, sighs)...I'm well aware that the size and frequency of my contributions are practically always on the large side; for that I apologize again. Unfortunately, as I've stated earlier, I had planned on finishing the Safe Haven Incident summary by the end of 2017, and being asked to delay on that has compelled me to resume completing it at the earliest best possible time after the start of this new year, though I've tried to pace that impulse. Also, as I've repeatedly noted in the past, I've disliked the extreme sparseness of some of the more shorter summaries on the wiki and am trying to rectify them; it's partially why I became an active regular here. However, my first run on Progressive Volume 2 apparently strengthened my tendency for overdescription, and it's still rather difficult for me to curb that habit. Plus, I fear if I'm not too careful, I could cut down my summaries too much to the point of being uninformative. I'll continue to attempt restraining my retelling propensity, but I'll have to warn you, it'll most likely be a long while before I can get it to a level favorable to all of us.

    • I don't want to get involved in this, but...

      Do you see that, really, because of your retellings, some people don't able to give her/his 100% on editing the wiki? I don't want you to accept it, but understand that because of your style, some people "got hurt" in a long run. And not just people, the wiki too. Not because of the size of the edits, nor the frequency, but the way you do it. You do a lot of edit in the same time, it's not a bad thing to be dedicated, but you do it with poor quality. If you just try to step a little back, try to collect the essence of the text AND make an edit, Gsi and the others have less job/problem with your edits instantly. The progress can be faster on the wiki. Try to be dedicated AND a little maximalist. If you don't able to, sorry, but that's because your too lazy to really try.

      How much time do you want to be better?/How much time the wiki gonna go step-by-step, without running a little?

  • So, nearly a year ago, you made a lot of edits on Kirito's article. Due to lack of time, I've only managed to finish reviewing those changes today. If you'd like to see the results, see [1] here. Not sure how much this is relevant for you after a year, but I hope that it'll be of use to you in determining how much content you should cover.

    • ...I see. That is quite a lot. Though, if you'll forgive my quibbling, you might have removed one detail from the Progressive chronology section than might have been absolutely necessary; of course, you're the admin/moderator, so I won't raise too much of a fuss over it. When I finally resume my work on the Progressive Arc articles/sections, I'll try and reintegrate it along with some minor expansion while keeping it in line with the main flow of the story and trying to match it with Asuna's chronology.

    • That is quite a lot

      That's why I asked you to slow down. A lot of the issues there were repeated time and time again because you never waited for corrections the first time.

      you might have removed one detail from the Progressive chronology section than might have been absolutely necessary

      Not sure what you have in mind, but if I removed it, it means you didn't really make it sound important by burrying it in unimportant details. Which is why I am asking you to be concise and avoid covering minor stuff that has no real importance to the big picture.

  • For a while now, I've seen you referring to the infobox debut parameters as "appearance". This is kinda confusing, because "appearance" usually refers to the actual appearance/description section that is present on most articles, rather than an infobox parameter for when a certain character/location first appears in the franchise. The infobox parameters are better referred to as "debut" or at least "first appearance" to avoid being ambiguous.

    • Right, sorry about that. I'll try to clarify when I'm describing debut or appearance on subsequent edits, though sheer force of habit might make this confusion continue a little longer.

  • I'm going to be busy with exams throughout June, thus I would appreciate it if you'd refrain from excessively large edits during this time (as this and this is what my to-do list looks like ever since my last exam session; I have yet to catch up on stuff from way back in November for the entire half a year since then). Your latest batch of edits were surprisingly not hard to review, thus I hope you can continue to find similar work (or if you want to do summaries, please tone it down - don't write 5 paragraphs every 24 hours, especially when those 5 paragraphs could just as easily be covered in 2 or so paragraphs) for the next few weeks to allow me to focus on my exams. Thank you for your understanding.

    • (blinks slowly)...That much over two consecutive days is still going overboard? Bother, I was hoping I was finally getting my summaries under control. I had been working on adding two small paragraphs to Dark Repulser's chronology before I got this message, but looks like I'll have to restrict my contribution to just the references/dates/links and leave the chronology expansion for next time. Sorry about that.

    • Two paragraphs every few days is fine. Two paragraphs every day when I have exams is pushing it. I haven't yet reviewed them, so I can't (yet) say anything about how concise they are, but I definitely won't have the kind of free time to go through two paragraphs each day until Friday. Especially if they start piling up.
