  • Hello Kimlasca, This is LuckyFlanker13 here, just to check in some updates you made to Selvaria's gallery. From what I've seen, it's edging a bit too close to NSFW territory; I'll be removing them in 24 hours unless you find a way to include them in a less obvious and easily clicked-fashion (say, external link on deviantart, for example). I'd rather not our wikia not be labelled NSFW (damn you Honjou-san); we're a niche fandom as is, and we can't afford to lose any new players because of the wikia's risque look

    Anyway, it's nice to welcome you back, and please respond as soon as you can.

    Warm regards, LuckyFlanker13

    PS - You know those risque background images (say, of Crymaria and Kai)? Do you know how to change those?

    • I've implemented a NSFW tag. Please implement it on pages that you believe may pertain to be towards NSFW. Character pages shouldn't require it I believe unless there is relevant NSFW content on it, links to pages with that content shouldn't matter in that regard but those pages should have the tags.

  • Hello, could you fix or unlock Template:Infobox character? After whatever changes was made to how "Rank" parameter handled, now all pages with the Template that had "Rank" parameter with rank icon and rank names now not displaying it at all in the infobox, and now instead displaying broken category because it tries to create category with the rank image in it.

    Thank you for looking into this.

  • Dear Kimlasca, 

    Hello, name's luckyflanker and I'm a recently-joined editor to the encyclopaedia. 

    In regards to editing, I've hit a bit of a roadblock -- it's been rather painful to hit the standards that you and Ragemaru have set on adding information to the Valkyria Chronicles 3 tank turret stat pages. 

    Not only have the screenshots been low quality, but its also been incredibly painful simply to get the screenshots consistent in size and having correct info. As you may know, recording the unlock conditions of each turret is dependent on story timing, making it harder to pull of the necessary screenshots as consistently as possible. 

    In my recent playthrough of VC3, I've been trying to keep to the standards you and Ragemaru have set, but I've realized that it may be slightly redundant; why do we need to record stats in the form of screenshots when typing them down is easier to keep neat, uniform, and to the qualities of this wikia?

    Thanks for listening to me and watching over this awesome wiki! I hope to hear from you soon!

    Best, 

    Flanker-13

  • I still think the system of subdividing VC4 character pages into five sub-pages is excessive for one-off non-storyline characters: we don't do that with the characters in any of the other games, it's just all on the one page and works fine. I see the point of having a sub-page for quotes since that section tends to be very large compared to the rest of the article, but it seems to be complexity for the sake of complexity with all the others.

    • I can agree with that solution for the biography and the gameplay pages. For the most part, it seems all of the biography is canon so there won't be issues with trying to unify, besides removing it from the gameplay pages. I was actually thinking of something to that effect, like how it is with the biography section linking to the biography page. Merchandise can just have a small blurb on the character page and be linked to the appropriate page for it. I will also modify the character boxes for the gameplay pages as those shouldn't need much information compared to the main page.

      I'll get to work on that then!

  • Could you perhaps not split pages into a half-dozen useless side-articles while I'm trying to write them?

    • Maybe eventually put like a trivia/note on the aces page about that male/female ratio as well.

    • Also I'm taking the Japanese Ace names off a Japanese game guide site, I don't actually speak the language so I just hope they've got it right >_>

      I can see they got a little creative with some of the translations.

  • Hello Kimlasca Warrior, I love art. I love drawing characters from different games and anime, but I don’t know which game your profile picture is from. May I ask which game is your profile picture from?

  • More or less modeled after Valkyria Chronicles 3 Chapter List in terms of internal page structure.

    Naming-wise I like prefixing VC4: for the "game data" articles, kind of giving them a pseudo namespace. Chapter names have in-game English titles, so I'm using them as-is (still possible that the English localization will change the name later, in which case we'll just have to rename the articles, and add a trivia note about different official English spellings). For mission names there wasn't any in-game English, and any translation I attempt (or any other Japanese-fluent wiki contributor comes up with) has a high chance of not exactly matching what the English localization will end up using, so I decided to follow the VC3 example and use the original Japanese names for now, and we will just have to rename them when the English localization become available.

    The biggest possible controversy/debate here would be the prefix system. I would propose that they are used only for articles specific about game-specific data/system, and do not apply to articles for lore or real world things.

    Thoughts?

  • It seems on this wiki often the Biography section simply contains a character's profile description or in-game "Personnel" data, as opposed to being actual biography (I just checked, English VC1 doesn't call it "Biography"). And then there are things that are partially in-game text but partially edited, which from a copyright/license perspective can technically be an issue (derivative writing).

    I doubt the wiki would actually get into trouble for in-game text. Whereas if there are source book or art book text, those would be have a higher potential for copyright problems. There's a difference between documenting information found in a book, versus "plagiarizing" the text of the book.

    I would suggest official in-game text (or other official/copyrighted text) be placed in <blockquote> tags (and identify where it is quoted from, so that people would only edit it to correct any quoting mistakes). The in-game "Personnel" text would belong in "Profile" but not "Biography". "Biography" would be a main article section that is merged with "History" and/or "Story", and avoid direct copy (and shallow edits) of copy-righted text. Some characters, especially squad members that aren't central to the main plot, might only have "Profile" descriptions without a "Biography".


    I also have a separate issue where I feel a person's biography should belong on the character's main character article as opposed to being split out on a subpage. A person's biography should be the second most important aspect of a character needing textual description. If the main article is too long, it would be the other stuff that gets split out from the main article (such as a multi-paragraph treatise on different outfits that barely tells me anything more than an image gallery would).

    • BTW I'd like the following to be added to both MediaWiki:Common.css and MediaWiki:Wikia.css:

      .WikiaArticle blockquote {
          background: #fdf6e3;
          color: black;
          padding: 5px 10px;
      }
      

      The <blockquote> tag is currently used on some weapon articles such as Lancaar. The css rules would add a background color for the blockquoted, whereas currently it only gets an indentation that isn't always very visually distinguishable.
