  • Hey Oppaichan

    Recently, wikia has implement a built-in infobox builder and I tried to created one. Here is my blog post: http://to-loveru.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:VuLinhAssassin/New_wikia_standarized_infobox

    What do you think of this?

  • Hey, Oppaichan.

    Been a long time since I've been here. What's up?

    Any way, getting right down to the point of this message of mine, I uploaded a ton of images from the anime of the series and, I noticed that about some of the images on each of the character pages are merely fan made, with some being colored from the manga (and redone fan arts from the anime too), which I know should not count to the official images within each of the characters' individual galleries.

    Also, a few of the galleries are a bit, for lack of a better word, disorganized. Why did I choose the word "disorganized" instead of "unorganized"?

    Well, it's mainly because it seems that we don't have proper control over users who upload images onto the wiki to the character image galleries, which is bad as we both know it. And also, some of the manga images are mixed with the anime, which we should separate in different sections on the galleries. As a rule, we should make it clear that only official images from both the anime and manga be uploaded to the wiki. Fan art images should be inadmissible to the wiki, with the exception if users were to ONLY upload them in their User pages.

    Also, I noticed that characters such as Aya, Risa and Sawada lacked an image gallery. That should be a problem easily dealt with though.

    Getting back to the main discussion about the image galleries, like I said, we should establish a rule to forbid random users from uploading fan arts to character galleries and only allow registered users to upload them, but, however, still keeping the rule of now allowing fan arts be uploaded, unless if they were to solely put them in their user pages.

    This is just my thought though and I'm not telling you what to do around the wiki, dude. I just wanted to point things out so that the wiki can be a bit more organized. I wanted to clean up the galleries today, but I only had 30 minutes to be active on the wiki before logging out and leaving this message to you.

    Sorry if I bothered you about this though. Like I said, I just wanted to voice something out to you. That's all.

    I'll listen to what you have to say about this later when you reply back (or not, it's up to you).

    - Vince!

    • Thanks a lot for your input. It's always great to hear from people who cooperate and want to make this Wiki great.

      I've always wanted the images uploaded on this wiki to be limited to only official artwork, as well as manga pages and anime screenshots ONLY IF they are relevant and complement the articles. Unfortunately, regulating the images has always been the biggest chore with this Wiki, especially with people uploading completely random screenshots of characters doing unimportant stuff like walking around, pictures with nudity, and fanarts. 

      Several users have a habit of uploading completely random screenshots from the anime that don't really display anything important or serve any informative purpose. And they upload them in dozens, so deleting them all one at a time is so repetitive. 

      Unfortunately, this wiki can't differentiate between random users (wikia contributors) and registered users (people with usernames). It can only differentiate between regular users and authorized users like admins. So the image gallery will likely remain open for any user to upload useless images. 

      I know we have a rule to not upload fanart, but the main reason for this is because, not only do the artworks sometimes require permission to use from the artist, but also because I believe it's courteous and obligatory to credit the artist for the artwork. Finding the original artist can be difficult and so, more likely, people would simply collect and upload whatever fanart they like and not bother giving the artist the proper credit. 

      But I think it's a great ide to use fanart only in the users' own pages. 

      Do you think it would help if we make a page for user rules and policies?

    • It would.

      It should be put on the home page of the wiki and on the Community Message as well, just in case users were to skip the home page. Also, it should be good to inform the already established users in the wiki about the upcoming rules and policies, to have them be accustomed to the future changes in the wiki to help it become better for both it and our own sakes.

      Also, regarding official artworks, other websites actually have a pretty good assortment of images from both the anime and manga. I honestly take my time into googling them and finding good quality ones to put on the wiki, like the ones you saw me put up and the ones that I will soon put up as well here.

      It's just about taking time into searching them out and finding the good ones. It's good to dig deep into the internet sometimes and pretty much the time spent/wasted in doing so is [probably] worth it. Also, about the differentiation between random and registered users, I think it would be good to put the pages on "Protect" to make sure that ONLY registered users are allowed to edit. Reverting back unnecessary edits and/or vandalizations done should always result in an immediate warning and block respectively, to ensure wiki and user safety that is.

      Also, another thing worth mentioning is how we should actually organize the pages with updated templates. In my opinion, the current templates are good, but don't seem that good at all. Although this is just general opinion from me. That actually has no real "go up against" toward the wiki in general.

      Any way, before I forget, a strict rule should be put up in the "soon-to-be" established rules and policies about how only official artworks should be uploaded to the wiki, avoid any inappropriate activities and non important discussions should be held on blog posts and not on forum threads. Someone should also be assigned to look over the wiki from time to time when there aren't any people editing, to patrol the wiki for any overlooked activities that we may miss and have them take over in dealing with it. I think admins should be able to do this.

      This way a bit of authority and management can be instilled.

      Thoughts?

  • I wonder why this wiki doesn't have a navbar at the bottom of articles? Is it just that nobody creates it yet?

  • Recently, there is an anonymous person who has been editting some article like Tearju's and Kyouko Kirisaki's pages, and he/she claimed that they ARE in love with Rito. From what I read in manga, as well as watching anime, I can be sure that although they DO have feeling for Rito, however, it is not LOVE, and even if someone can assume that is LOVE, there is no official information to confirm they are in love with him.

    Well, he/she and I have been debating those things for sometimes. I need your final decision.

    Here is Tearju's page: http://to-loveru.wikia.com/wiki/Tearju_Lunatique

    And here is the latest change: http://to-loveru.wikia.com/wiki/Tearju_Lunatique?diff=19919&oldid=19913

    • Tearju is definitely not in love with Rito. Whether she will be later or not is yet to be seen. In my opinion, unlikely. 

      Kyouko is explicitly developing a crush for him. But clearly not at the point where she really is in love with him.

      Claiming that they are currently in love with him is very much false information.

    • Maybe you will have the final say. If you deem necessary, please give out your decision...

  • I just wanted to know if I was unwittingly doing anything wrong or violating any of the wikis rules, and if there was anything extra you'd like me to do in order to help contribute to the site. I know this is a stupid question, but I just want to make sure that I'm doing what's expected of me as an editor.

      Loading editor
    • You haven't done anything wrong that I know of. And I don't remember any mistakes you made that I needed to correct or remind you about. So, really, you don't have anything to worry about.

      I don't know if you need to be told any of this, but since we're on the subject, there are some practices that I mentioned before to others, which wouldn't hurt to mention again.

      We try to avoid biased information. This could be difficult because it's sometimes hard to differentiate between facts and feelings. For example, you can mention that a character is cute, beautiful, very nice, or something, if they are established as such in the story. But if you overpraise them as being "extremely" beautiful, the best looking character, the most perfect girlfriend, or something like that, you're getting closer to expressing your own feelings and impression, rather than just stating the simple facts. The same principle applies for negative traits and criticism of the character.

      Also, take a look at the Venus Momo Club for example. The page describes the characters as "losers". And the Principal is a pervert, nuff said. This is not biased, because, as intentionally established in the story, there's really little other way to describe them.

      A second thing I'd like to mention is that I encourage leaving a short edit summary for changes made. Especially when undoing other people's edits. I've made mistakes with good intentions in other wikis before, but I found it very rude when my edits were undone with no explanation, like the admins just take my work and threw it back in my face.

      Third, upload official artwork into galleries, and only upload anime screenshots and manga pages if they are used to support the article. It's just one more thing I find frustrating sometimes. When uploading pictures, DON'T just upload random pages and screenshots that serve no purpose for the wiki. The manga and anime can be read/watched elsewhere.

      Also, sexually explicit pictures need to censor all private parts if they are to be uploaded.

      Well, I guess that's it for me ranting. Sorry about that. You really have done nothing wrong. So really, just have fun here.

  • Well, instead of flooding the comments section, I guess it'd be a good idea to use the forums to discuss about the current events in the manga, especially with the current chapter release.

    Anyway, for a starting discussion, I've noticed that Rito has been using the "It was an act of god" as an excuse whenever he tumbles or unintentionally "molests" any of the girls. So, any opinions on it before I give mine?

    • I've just re-enabled the forums. I find that they are more popular on forum websites made specifically for the topics, and not as popular on wiki forums, unless the subject is a very popular and active series or online game. But we'll see how this goes. Feel free to give it a try.

    • I actually don't know what the problem is. Your username is not on the block list. Are you able to make edits?

        Loading editor
    • Yep, I did some edits earlier. At first the thing at the picture always pops up. Then when I re-logged, it was gone. Then I logged out and logged in again for the second time, I'm blocked again. I relogged again and I can edit again. I really think this is a Wikia error :3

  • Seeing how the manga chapters need a fixer-upper how do I request for other people's assistance? I got how the pages should be titled, all organized in my head:

    Original To Love-Ru chapters  "The Girl who fell from the sky (Chapter)"

    Darkness Chapters "The Right Thing ~What is a Way of Life?~"

    Manga Volumes "To Love-Ru Volume 01"

    Anime Episodes "The Right Thing ~What is a Way of Life?~ (Episode)"

    Are these examples clear, to avoid duplicates?

  • I' just tooka  look at my message wall, and noticed a few of the concerns you expressed over the edits I've made on this wiki, both good and bad. I appreciate the feedback, and will do the best that I can to follow through with what it deemed as aceeptable. I hope you can understand what I'm trying to say, and if it's alright with you, could you give me a brief list of things that would be okay for me to edit?

    • By the way, I also noticed that you seem to often remove the categories from Rito's page. Can you please explain why? Was that somehow an accident or an error that happened whenever you make edits?

        Loading editor
    • I'm pretty sure that was an error. Either that or I accidentally hit a button I shouldn't have done. I'll be sure to use more caution in the future.

  • I came from a culture where people address each other by their first name, never use last name in most cases (of course, I would not address my mother by her name, as it is considered to be very RUDE). I've been watching To Love-Ru for some times, and I still feel confused about how people in the series address each other.

    As far as I know, when people in JPese address each other by their first name, it is implied that their relationship is somewhat close. But Rito addresses Haruna by her last name, but he calls Run/Ren, Momo or Nana by their first name (Run/Ren is not as close to Rito as Momo/Nana), and this somewhat makes me confused.

    If you know much about JPese culture, can you explain me how people in Japan address each other? When will they use last name (surname) or first name?

      Loading editor
    • Japanese speech is either formal and polite, or informal and casual. They have to always be formal and respectful to people older or higher in rank, and to strangers and acquaintances at first. And being informal and casual is permitted between close friends, or else it's simply rude.

      Japanese people do generally address each other by their family names, and add honorific for formality and politeness. And using first names implies close relationship and requires permission from each other. Sometimes they would even ask each other for permission.

      But the reasons for using first names can vary sometimes. Sometimes first names are a good way to differentiate between siblings or people with the same family name, but still require permission. And children significantly younger don't require being addressed formally either. But oftentimes, some people of the same age are just friendly, open to everybody, and think little of it. For example, if classmates you barely know tell you off the bat to use their first names, it's basically their way of saying "let's be friends".

      In Lala's case, I think I remember that she introduced herself as just Lala, and she immediately called him Rito. Run also started calling him Rito-kun. Nana calls him Rito because she's just immature and rude. And Momo calls him Rito-san, which is close but still polite and formal, the way a wife would call her husband whom she considers higher than herself. And so for Rito, calling them by their first names just came naturally. They pretty much gave him permission by default.

      And Haruna, well, both she and Rito are just too chicken to get closer to each other in any way. So it's family names for them, and will be for a long time.
