Hello Leviathan657! Thanks for leaving a few reminders regarding photos that should be uploaded in this wikia. :D I really appreciate it~ I know being a newbie on these kinds of matters is not an excuse; I still hope you're gonna be patient enough to answer my questions (here and there)... and also remind me again just in case I might so anything that's against the policies here. I'm so sorry. ; 3 ;)/ But I really promise to be responsible! >.<
Anyhow, I just wanna ask about one of the Expansion Project's objective: "improving the article quality". Is it just in terms of content and information accuracy? Does it also consider sentence construction and grammar? In case it doesn't include the latter, I guess I'll just apply for work in the clean-up project team (since my skills are closer to its objectives). But if you need help with anything, please do ask. I'm an able (and fast >.< ) learner so I think I'm capable of handling jobs. o/
Oh yes; where are my manners. :)) I'm Michieruchan; very pleased to meet you! :D/
Umm I think that spelling and grammar falls under clean up, though I'm not entirely sure at the moment. Either way feel free to target spelling and grammar. :p I've written most of the pages here since I've been around since 2010 and there was minimal information here at that time, but more recently my spelling and grammar has improved greatly because "I now use Source mode when editing pages and that highlights any spelling errors (plus age/experience contributes greatly). All-in-all spelling and grammar will be more of an issue on pages where I haven't had a chance to improve and expand (i.e. Jack/History just had another admin go through and correct some of my older mistakes). Feel free to help out
Yo Levi . I created a fair use template for the images on the wiki. From now on, all of the images have to have this in their pages:
You can see an example in this image. I know that currently none of the images don't have this, but if new images are uploaded without it, then the image will be deleted. Either this and if the image is not used. Also please if you find a .png image over .jpg image, then use the .png image as it is higher quality as said in the image policy.
Since you are the one that mostly uploads manga images, I would really like you to use this website when you make your images. This website has the highest quality PH images and they are in .png format. Please make manga images in the future from this.
Also Levi, when you write on the wiki, please try to keep it short. Here's an example:
"Oz fell down, he was shoked and hurt his leg. At that time he was thinging about Alice and his dear, best friend Gilbert." - Not this. Instead somehhing like this:
"Oz fell down startled. As he fell he remembered Alice and Gilbert".
This is just something random I just made up but I wanted to tell you that you don't have to write in so much detail. We already have a lot of info on the wiki and it's really long. So just try and keep it precise and to the point.
I appreciate everything you do in this wiki, in fact I think you're the most hard working user here ^_^ However, I'd just like to remind you that when one uploads images from the manga, the text should be removed :3 And also I suggest that don't name them just numbers. For example, "Levi 89" is a better name than "89 - 5". I'm currently taking care of things now though :3
That's all I wanted to say, overall you're my idol because you contribute a lot XD
That's my one issue, I can't remove text from images, I can only crop and slightly enhance sometimes - if I needed to ever upload images, GoldStar would usually take care of the text. As for naming the images, I can do that, but say Levi appeared in a chapter more than once, should it be Levi 89 - 1 ?
Thanks for all the compliments too btw, I've been working on this site since 2010 I think (shortly after the creator vanished I do believe). Just like the Barmas I believe knowledge is power :p
Well, I remove text on paint, but when the text box is complicated I use photoshop :3 And yes, that's right, you can name it Levi 89 - 1 and so on :3 as long as the character's name is mentioned it's alright ^^
Yes, feel free to hunt down Zwei's and change them to Noises (unless they're in locations where they're necessary, like Trivia where it says that Zwei = Echo + Noise).
For now that's the only change I'm making, just because the whole Echo thing is very confusing - but it's looking like I might be making further changes to Duldum and making a new page for Duldee, which may result in more hunting. *Sigh* why must Jun make things so overly complex :/
Update: Hey I saw on tumblr an update from lilyginnyblack and it says she mistranslated some part :3 Basically on her post it says Noise is the original.. well just check it out it's pretty complicated :(
I looked at it, but it doesn't make sense. Like it does make sense that Echo is a "Chain" and all, and how she came to be makes sense, but the rest of it doesn't now.
It doesn't make sense how Echo/Duldum could be so sinister while Noise is so pitiful, only for them to switch personalities with one another (hopefully that'll be elaborated on).
And it also doesn't make sense because Noise always called her Chain Duldum (Echo's apparent name), when in reality it was Duldee. I liked it better before the correction, because that made more sense, but now I'm just going to wait to see what the English scans say and leave the pages the way they are.
In the English Volumes they're called Crimson eyes. I'm not sure why, but Red eyes just doesn't sound right in that context, in my opinion - and apparently Jun (or at least translators for the English Volumes) agrees. Crimson is the way to go :p
I don't actually know, myself. I've never been able to find English copies of the Guidebooks :( I'll look around online, but I don't know if I'll be able to find anything. Echo is atleast 26 years old though (we know this because Zwei was at the Coming of Age Ceremony), but I don't think it was ever revealed if Zwei/Echo were Baskervilles chosen by the Abyss in present day or 100 years ago like most of the Baskervilles.
Now I do remember hearing that Echo herself is 16. It's been discussed before that this could be because the personality of Echo was created only 16 years ago. Zwei is atleast 26, and she did say that she was the original personality. This being said it's likely that Echo is 16 and Zwei's age is unknown.
Hello ^_^ Aside from "Back to Back" and "Couldn't put Humpty together again" is there anything else that need to be hunted down and changed regarding the chapter names? And just to let you know, I am a member of the Clean-up project so you can always approach and ask me to do these kinds of tasks ^.^
I've been looking through some character galleries when the image of playing cards with Pandora Hearts characters on them caught my attention. I would just like to ask: Are these playing cards canon or fanmade? I really don't have any idea, I never really bought any Pandora Hearts merchandise since I don't have money :/
If it's fanmade, I'll have to remove them from the main galleries, though I'd place them on my own user page (they're cute so it'll be a waste to delete them >w<)
I wasn't the one who put them there, and I really don't know if they're legitimate components of the Pandora Hearts merchendise world, or if they're just something some fan made to take up some of their spare time. I think they're meant to tie-in with the anime style (just because of the design Rufus' card has), but apart from that I know nothing. :/
I'd say remove them, just because we don't really know. If someone would like to come by and make a legitimate confirmation that they're actually canon, then they can feel free, but otherwise they should be removed for good measure
Regarding the List of Omakes, I've been editing it this day and when I was about to add summaries I found that majority of the Omakes (from Volume 6-17, and one each from Volume 3-5) are missing/not published online. Since you're the one who made the page (I looked at the history), I would like to ask if you know a manga website which includes the omakes for Volumes 3-17+ of Pandora Hearts, since I assume that you got those information because you have a hard copy of those volumes (I wish I have too v.v) If you can find a website I'd gladly do it myself.
But if you don't know such website then... maybe... I suggest you do the summaries yourself? (if in case you really have hard copies) I'm not forcing you, it's just a suggestion :3
It is really unfortunate that not all the omakes are up online, I couldn't find any either when I created the page, and yes all I have are the physical Volumes 1 - 16 with the intention of getting Volume 17 tomorrow and Volume 18 within the next 2 weeks (we'll see if this plays out, depends on money - I love that the English Volumes are coming out at a fast pace now!).
I've been rather busy lately because of a large fair event that happened here for about a week (where I helped out), and today is Canadian Thanksgiving, and tomorrow I have an all-day doctor's appointment, but I can probably help out with the summaries after tomorrow. Especially since I'm almost completely done with Isla Yura :)
Hello ^_^ So I summarized all the Projects in one page. I assigned you as Head of the Manga Project since I saw that you are the one who always Manga-related stuff, such as the latest chapters. I also assigned you as Head of the Expansion Project since I saw that you're active in expanding articles, (for example Isla Yura's page). You may also assign yourself as Co-Head of any other project you would like to actively contribute to, or Head of the Anime Project (if nobody else has assigned himself/herself as Head of that Project by the time you read this)
Also, I created some new badges, and the blog post related to that can be found here.
Hi Levi! I was thinking that a lot of our current Admins are inactive. It's basically me and you that are active, so I was thinking of introducing a new rule and that is that if an Admin is not active for a month, he/she loses their rights. I think it's only fair since they haven't been here in ages. Of course, before we take the Admin rights of any of them, I will write on their walls about this new rule. What do you think??
It doesn't mean that when you become an Admin, you can just disappear...
I was thinking of something else recently by the way. Like we do have the Similarities page for what's similar between Pandora Hearts and the Alice in Wonderland series, but it's not very well known from what I understand. Perhaps it'd be better to include an 'Origins' section on certain characters' pages whose ties are known (sort of like how some wiki's have 'Etymology' sections on character pages). It'd make access to that information easier, and the connection would be more clear. What do you think?
