Hey other admin of DK wiki, I was wondering if we could put up a character template on the main page for easier direct access to the characters themselves, and also adding episode numbers in front of the episode titles along with changing series to Season?
I don't remember when, but Wikia did a Rollout change which barred IPs from editing things they considered "for children", to enforce that COPPA thingy. It hit a lot of Wikis I'm involved with, though it can be reversed/added by talking to Staff.
But yeah, perhaps Staff put you in some fringe "not for children" group, or you just evaded their eye, I dunno.
I put a notice about it in the middle of the Home Page a while back, so anyone reading it will probably just ignore it and go on and do whatever they were going to do before. The biggest problem we ever really have on a regular basis is people adding a random Category to a random page, and those can be one-click-Reverted, so it's no big deal.
So an update to translation issues, I've recently stumbled upon the language brigade, who apparently does translations! We'll have all the music up and running in the coming days boss! And other people!
Hmm, well for one we haven't exactly secured all the song lyrics for DK yet, but if you want to then sure boss. I'm preoccupied with college stuff lately and can't exactly get work done so thx for the help! I'll get the pages up and running when the they're done. Well anyway, here's our best lead on the music.
So apologies for being MIA for the past few weeks, I blame College Exams for that...
But you might've caught me on chat that one brief time, which I should've noticed but didn't...
Anyway, I've been thinking about setting up a page for the Image Songs (Character Themes as they seem to call it), and I kinda need some folks to identify the songs for their respective characcters or sides or stuff...
Information about these songs in freaking scarce, some of them exist, but the problem is identifying the song's character behind it......
Well most of them are the other 2 songs (Including Off-Vocal) from the various CDs of both Opening and Ending themes, some we'd had to resort to Amazon JPN to get confirmation, luckily some of them had their CD cover pics up on Google Images.
Anyway here's where we managed to get the CD contents
Um not exactly, because don't the episode pages already have that...?
Erm...basically I was thinking that we also include links to the Japanese dubbed episodes on the episode pages...
I get that people would prefer English dubs over the Japanese dub, but I was thinking about including the Japanese dubbed episodes for those who want to see certain deleted parts of certain episodes by 4Kids...
I'm still not completely sure what you're trying to get at with the Japanese episodes thing. Are you asking about making new pages for them? Or are you talking about adding the actual episode videos on the pages?
As for the JP Wiki, it'll probably take some time to get all the details down, since I'm also preoccupied for the moment.
Also, I'll be away for a week starting tomorrow, taking a vacation.
To Admin @BioniclesaurKing4t2 or Boss if you're there, I've been thinking about the TCG and had this in mind...
Um...I was thinking that we make a completely seperate page for the TCG cards so that anyone in the world who still plays the TCG can access it for easily rather than slog through the page of that specific Dinosaur.
Basically it's more like trying to give that one specific card it's very own page so that people can refer to the TCG cards and stuff more easily.
I kinda got this idea after being part of the 'Cardfight! Vanguard Wiki' for awhile, so I was thinking maybe we should go ahead with this plan?
Or maybe not so soon, seeing as the Booster Sets for the TCG could use some arranging too...
So what do you think?
PS: Getting the Music for the series has stalled for a bit, so this is also something else that I thought we could work on in the meantime...
Well, the arcade, anime, and TCG (and sometimes DS) stats and stuff for each dinosaur are sort of integrated into the same single page, so isolating one onto its own page would almost prerequisite the isolation of each source onto different pages (meaning everything would have 3-4 different pages, which would make one need to search for what they were looking for). Now, a while ago I had the idea to make a separate wiki just for the TCG so that the quick-and-easy access you describe could be possible while not cluttering or confusing up this wiki, but I never got around to it. Perhaps I could revive this idea to make the spin-off wiki, copying over the needed info and pics.
But then again since all the information's already here, why not just stick with it?
I mean Vanguard had both an anime and a TCG...with everything about that series all strapped together on one convenient location...
And if you think about it, people who are looking for the TCG might not necessarily be willing to include TCG when searching for it, might just assume the wiki has everything on it, being the same name and all...
Oh and could you drop by chat so that we can discuss this? Please...? :)
I suppose adding the stuff to this wiki would also work, it'd just take a bit more effort and might make the Move Card list templates explode from being overstuffed. Or maybe we could make redirect pages named after the cards to the relavant section of the preexisting card list pages. Also, I'm kinda working on "borrowed-without-permission time" at the moment, so I won't be available much.
You could also have just put it back on the page and cited proof while at it. For those who just look at the page, they might miss it as well, since the connections you made weren't very obvious.
Also, just to confirm, the dash in the middle of Goma's name is just for pronunciation, right? Although it seems to alter the romanji spelling to "Gohma" rather than "Goma". Apparently, a boss in Zelda is also called Gohma ... and looks quite different from the Goma here ^^;
The part that's confusing is why you brought the dish goma-ae into your explanation. The usual spelling for the dish is written in kanji (胡麻和え) rather than katakana/hirigana (ゴマどうふ), so if someone looks up the dish (which is what you mentioned), they won't have a clue as to how the two are related. I can't see any connection between the dish and his name, since the part you were getting at was only the sesame part.
Saying that Goma meant sesame, and putting the katakana for it (ゴマ) next to your explanation, would have been much simpler and clearer.
By the way the dash in the name is practically for pronouciation yes, the "ー" character in some japanese terms of words or names is used to extend the pronouncation so take a name like Lee for example it has the same "ー" character at the end what the character is doing is that it's extending the two ee's pronounciatios at the end of the name and since Japanese alphabets never use the letter the "L" it would be spelled like this Rī and the kanji character looks like this リー.
First, it's actually "Sonoida." Secondly, the link you posted said Sonida is Greek, not German
Okay here's the skinny to put this all under the bridge and let things be bigons be bigons. Why don't you ask a friend who probably japanese or learns japanese and ask them about the name and what it means.
I mean the name and meaning fits I'm because Dr. Z has great wisdom when it comes to finding dinosaurs and a countries have ceremonies to predict the next outcome.
"D" stop being so serious and technical, proof has nothing to do with it and besides if it did then I would tell you this that the Flintstones are pretty famous and so it's possibly that they could've gave the Deinonychus leader the name because of the character.
Besides you got any other suggestions on the Deinonychus was named Dino. Unless you think its a slight pun for the first part of its name...
Key word: possibly. I don't find any reason to think that it's from the Flintstones. Sure, it's famous. But Dino could be referring to anything. It's a name, shortened from Bernardino, which means "strong". You can add it back, but I just don't see any reason to assume that it's a reference just because they share traits. If we were doing that, I could compile a whole list of other characters that share traits with DK ones.
Bernardino is probably an Italian name. I just threw that out there because of the fact that "Dino" (pronounced deeno, as per the character you said) isn't limited to just the Flintstones.
The Flintstones is technically set in the Stone Age, I wouldn't particularly say it's dinosaur-themed, it just happens to have (out of place) dinosaurs. I don't particularly like The Flintstones, though, so my memory of it is probably wrong.
I removed the trivia piece because it very specifically said Tyrannosaurs, which limited the scope to Tyrannosaurs. If he fought distant cousins of Tyrannosaurs, that's fine, but they're not Tyrannosaurs, they're distant cousins of them. It's a given that he fought distant cousins. But unlike the other main dinosaurs, he didn't really fight any in his "immediate" family.
Wait, what are you trying to say with your last sentence? You're agreeing with me there/make no sense (Minor characters don't have a significant impact and some of them don't; that's essentially what you just said).
So you went into the anime, asked them their histories and relationships, and can put that info on the Wiki? That's what I'm talking about when I say "enough info to write anything about them". For example, we have a page for Amy (which I don't believe should exist), but we can't really add anything to her page besides what's already on there. We see their teacher twice (or more?), but we don't know anything about her except that she dislikes being called old (or young), is energetic, and can be a bit immature. Neither of them really caused any development for any of the characters, nor did their actions give insight into any other character's behaviour.
