Page naming Edit

Hey, so I just created a page for Uchino and, of course, named it Uchino 内野. And now the only way to go directly to the page is to type that, kanji included. Typing in just "Uchino" goes to a list of all pages that have "Uchino" in them but from that list, the link that's supposed to go to her page is broken because the kanji are replaced with other characters. And yet from the Earth Creatures page and from the Recent Wiki Activity, there's no problem going to the page. So, for future reference, I wanted to ask how exactly to name pages to avoid problems like this and if you could fix this one. Pesky Bug 22:33, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

seems to be a Wikia bug, not something I have control over, just use a redirect from the romaji name to the actual page with romaji and kanji name, like this "Uchino" --> redirect to "Uchino_内野" ~~Gin-san (Talk) 09:26, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

"PLS DO NOT CHANGE IMAGE FILENAME, can replace same file with another image" Edit

Don't think I understand what you mean when you undid my edit on the Uchino and Ane pages. The images I put are ones that I uploaded but simply gave them a similar name to already existing (just adding a "p" at the end). Never mind, I figured it out. Pesky Bug 10:53, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia Anime on Twitter Edit

Hello, I'm Kate from the Wikia Content team. We are trying to create a WikiaAnime Twitter group, where all of the amazing wikis can come together and share their most exciting information, and hopefully get a lot of new users! To join, all you need to do is post this Twitter button and tweet list on your main page.

Twitterbutton

Then you can visit the Anime Twitter Suggestions Page and post tweets you'd like to see, with links back to your wiki.

Please share this with your other members and admins and see if it's something they'd be interested in joining! Let me know if you have any questions, and we hope to see you there! Kate.moon 02:38, February 23, 2011 (UTC)

Hey,

I just wanted to let you know that I put the Twitterfeed on the mainpage. It's been doing really well on other anime wikis and I hope that this will help you guys get more traffic and users!

Concerning the naming of the Characters and whatnot.. Edit

Hey, I just started checking out this Wiki since I'm watching the anime too. But there's one thing I think would help. I've been around on several other wikis, and I find that having the Romanized names only in the title of the article kinda helps to make it look more presentable as well easier to find. They normally place the Japanese names in brackets or somewhere inside the article instead of the title. I think it would make things easier to find and organize things, especially for those who aren't fluent in Japanese [like me. xD].


Do you think it might be possible to do this? I don't know how many articles are already like that, but I feel that it would give the wiki more order in a sense.

Thanks, The Hero's Fan 14:37, May 24, 2011 (UTC).

No.
If anyone wants to appreciate Gintama-esque jokes, learn to speak / read Japanese names properly, i.e. family name first, then first name.
This shall be this wiki's policy until new site administrators come onboard, then they can set whatever rules they wish.
~~Gin-san (Talk) 15:33, May 24, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, that's not what I really had in mind. Having the names in order <Family Name> <First name> is fine, but I was just suggesting organizing the Japanese characters in some way in the titles of their pages like in brackets or something. I just kinda found it odd having the characters there just like that. Anyways, thanks for your feedback, I'll try my best to work with what's here. ;3
The Hero's Fan 19:18, May 24, 2011 (UTC)
All the Romanized/Japanese name pages have redirects containing only the Romanized names alone, e.g. Okita Mitsuba redirects to Okita Mitsuba 沖田 ミツバ. Others with nicknames like Zura may also have redirects already.

Hey... =) I'm new so I'm not sure if I did the right thing Edit

I tried to add something from episode 216... it's the Patriot. But I'm not sure if I edited it properly. Will my contribution be seen by others right after I posted it? I hope I did the right thing because I would like to help you complete some of the missing pictures and info on the page. I'm a Gintama fan and I would like this page to look more awesome... =) This is my first time using Gintama wiki so I'm not yet sure of what to do. I hope I did it right.Lala Sanchez 17:50, July 11, 2011 (UTC)

Skin Edit

Greetings! I work for Wikia, and in light of the amazing work being done here I've been asked to extend an offer to build a skin (background, wordmark logo, color scheme) for you - as well as custom main page headers if you would like them. If you are open to customizing the look of this wiki, and are willing to work with me to get it just right, please let me know! :)

We should remove the kanji. Edit

The thing that I noticed here is that every page has a kanji. I find the japanese words not really needed considering most of us like me can't read that. What I mean to say is that we should remove the unnecessary kanji word.

For example it should be like this instead

Sakata Gintoki 坂田 銀時

Sakata Gintoki


When he cross-dresses, he is known as Paako (パー子), complete with twin pony tails and big breasts. Sakamoto Tatsuma persists on calling him Kintoki (金時), which happens to be his name in Kintama, a parody of Gintama set in the alternative world of Male Host Clubs. Otose usually uses Tennen Paama (天然パーマ, a.k.a. Natural Perm) when scolding Gintoki. Likewise, Catherine alternates between Sakata-san and Aho no Sakata(アホの坂田, or literally Idiot Sakata). Sakata-shi (坂田氏) is used only by Hijikata Toshiro when under possession by Tosshi. Gin is used by Oiwa and Rei. Tsukuyo simply calls him 'Gintoki' though she referred to his hair as a 'burnt wild field' inEpisode 177.

I disagree. Just because you and/or most people (how many I do not know, and I suspect no one will) do not know kanji doesn't mean the rest of the readers will not appreciate or learn to appreciate Japanese language in its written form. You may wish to bring up your request to the new future administrators if you wish, but until then, I am still the sole administrator here and the kanji, katakana and hiragana stay, not least because I do understand them and I believe they help to promote the site in search engines using other languages. It is also the standard set by Wikipedia in English, if you haven't noticed.

VandalsEdit

I know your not active on this wikia anymore but there was a vandal today that created a page with no sort of content at all and just gibberish i cant delete it since im not a admin so i ended up renaming it and redirecting it but could you please delete it the name of the page is Chief Fireman,btw i created a template for the organizations Template:Organizations hope you dont mind,and thanks in advance. User:X-RAPTOR 08:46, April 5, 2012 (UTC)

When you moved the page or redirect the page, sometimes the page history is lost and I can't undo or rollback. Best to just add a "request for deletion" template there if nothing abusive is visible.
Also please do not rename all the images "kawakami_mug.jpg" to other names because many other articles, birthday notices depend on the same image name and will not be updated. You may re-upload a new image to the same "kawakami_mug.jpg" page if you wish, then all pages referring to the same mug shot will display the same image.
Last but not least, thank you for patrolling the site. I have given you rollback rights to continue your fight against spammers.

Wikia BackgroundEdit

Hey Gin-san i have a request and that is if you dont mind changing the wikias current background to this picture http://download.minitokyo.net/Gintama.426075.jpg since the current one is a bit dull and its not that fitting,thats my thoughts on the matter you may disagree but i just thought of leaving you message in regards to that. User:X-RAPTOR 11:51, April 8, 2012 (UTC)

Please refer to the post titled "Skin" above on this same page and contact the poster whose name was signed off there
~~Gin-san (Talk) 15:06, April 10, 2012 (UTC)

hahaha Gin-san theres no need for that its just changing the current background image no need for the wikia skin buliding that the other user was talking about its just changing it and see how it turns out,you can see how it looks beforehand when you upload it on the theme designer options i think so no problem :) User:X-RAPTOR 15:22, April 10, 2012 (UTC)

Questions and RequestsEdit

Gin-san i want to talk with you about the templates that are currently being used on the character pages,i find them very confusing and kinda hard to work with in my opinion i find that they should be replaced by a easier and more accessible one since many of the information in it is unnecessary like the appearance (eye color,hair color can easily be put under the appearance section),background,personality, strength & abilties,relationships,trivia,all of the ones i mentioned can be used with heading 2 and be put in their respective pages with the neccesary information on each section be put below each one.I have created this new Character Template (not yet being used without an admin aproval of course) i think i have put all the necessary information in it http://gintama.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Character_Box and i would like to know what you think regarding this,the other question/request is about the kanji and japanese be excessively used in my opinion it should be put only in the infobox and on some exclusive cases outside of it but not has the pages name since the person who searches for it can easily find the japanese/kanji name in the respective infobox,i think thats all i wanted to cover for now and since its very difficult to discuss and talk with you has your not has active has before please reconsider my wikia background request above,thank you.User:X-RAPTOR 18:08, April 14, 2012 (UTC)

I am not in favour of re-doing work that is already reasonably acceptable, work that was previously contributed by many other users. If you are really interested in this series, you should be expanding it, not re-doing the old stuff, since there are more that 200 episodes & more than 200 characters now, more than enough to keep any editor busy. Having said that, there is nothing to stop you from replacing the templates since none of the pages are locked now, as far as I know. Let me know if you find any and I will unlock them.
~~Gin-san (Talk) 14:55, April 15, 2012 (UTC)

Ok thanks a lot for your reply..i just wanted to try and make it all look simpler and easier to work with and please take into consideration that wikia background request i think the size fits and it looks good on the wikia has i myself have tested it on a test wiki,and again thanks. User:X-RAPTOR 15:27, April 15, 2012 (UTC)

Sysop RequestEdit

Hello Gin-san i am here to ask you if you could give me admin rights,i have been away from editing for a month or so because of exams and school but now im back,and i will try to do my best here and help the wiki grow into a large community and organize/create the nescessary pages and templates to make it easier for people to edit and understand how to help the wiki,me along with the help of others users that come here,but has there is no active admin right now i would really like if you could consider this request,thank you. User:X-RAPTOR 22:57, June 14, 2012 (UTC)

- To be fair to all other users of this wiki, kindly take a look at the T&C to qualify for the Gintama wiki admin published on my profile page
- You have only been active for about 2 months, I find that for most users, the enthusiasm tends to die off after about 3 months or so, which is why I have to put a 6-month observation period in just to be sure, otherwise I will end up promoting and demoting users often, which can lead to a lot of unhappiness. Having too many wiki admins is also detrimental to the site as my past experience working on wikia has shown me that many wikia users are not mature enough to handle the responsibility of taking care of a wiki community and its contributions.
- I have already given you rollback rights to help you in spam control, I believe it is sufficient for the time being to aid you in taking care of this wiki
- Please do continue the good work you have been doing so far, and check back again in a few months with your request :)
~~Gin-san (Talk) 06:56, June 17, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Gin-san i dont want u took take this the wrong way but this wikia needs alot of work and with a inactive admin its kinda of hard because this wikia needs features and to be organized and cleaned(useless pages,one of many things..) to atract users to come here and help editing because if that doesnt happen most of them will leave and it will become really hard to do anyting productve in this wikia alone or with just 2 people,still i think you could still observe my progress while being a admin and give feedback i dont intend to leave the wikia or you could just comeback and help doing stuff arround here,since its really hard to communicate with you since ur inactive,please take this request into consideration because i really care about this wikia and i want to be of help and its being kind of hard doing it with just 1 or 2 users here. User:X-RAPTOR 22:06, June 18, 2012 (UTC)

Hey,Gin-san im having troubles moving pages lately it says that is the incorrect name or that the page already exists and this causes a real mess (with useless redirects),i would like your help on this and if you have some way to solve it please do so. User:X-RAPTOR 16:36, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

Which page(s) are you trying to move and why? List them down together with corresponding error msg or snapshots and I will take a look when I have the time.
what kind of organization or cleaning up are you proposing that will supposedly make this wiki easier for other editors? Have you discussed with them already? Pls share and let the rest of the editors give their views on your proposal
Pages that need to be deleted should be tagged with the delete template so that no more edits will be done there.
Anything to do with skins I have already indicated earlier that you should approach the wikia staff who left a post on my talk page further up. If you haven't noticed that staff has already done a main page makeover, so I repeat, pls avoid redoing things that have already been done by other users.

Offer of assistance Edit

Hello, Gin-san. While I am currently not a contributor to this wiki, I have several things in the works and would gladly help in promoting the quality of the site. I am already an administrator of the Inuyasha Wiki and while my hands are currently involved there, I will soon be taking a break to pursue work on this site instead. A sort of working vacation, if you will. While I realize that I do not currently meet the criteria you listed on your user page, I would like to offer you my candidature in the event that you do not find any other suitable replacements as administrator. I will begin work on the site within the next several weeks, so if you need a show of good faith, you may look to that as a display of my sincerity and enthusiasm. Happy editing to you.--Suzaku 朱雀Maze Castle 03:55, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Actually, since I left this message, a lot has happened and I've actually begun work elsewhere, so I don't know when I'll be able to start working on articles here. My offer still stands, but I doubt I'll meet any of your criteria any time soon.--Suzaku 空の天使Oración Seis Symbol楽園の塔 23:31, July 24, 2012 (UTC)

abuseEdit

Oii faggot, you should create an admins for this wiki. You don't care this wiki anymore right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, let other care for it FAGGGGGGot!!!!!!

You are hereby warned not to use abusive language on this wiki. Any repeat occurrence and your IP address(es) will be reported to Wikia staff for their action and you will be banned from Gintama wiki. If you wish to be admin, take a look at the terms and conditions listed on my profile page and see if you qualify. However, it is very obvious to all by your post above that you do not.

Thank you very much for the welcome message :D

Hey, can you show me how to restore pages, which were deleted from vandals? I tried to restore the Home Page but I don't know how to undo multiple edits...


Never mind I figured how to do it. Sad that so many people try to delete the pages ZOLANTON (talk) 15:18, March 19, 2013 (UTC)ZOLANTON


Hello there. A lot of people upload useless photos and create false pages. How can I delete or alter or hide them? ZOLANTON (talk) 13:01, April 2, 2013 (UTC)

Just tag the pages to be deleted with the "delete" template and wait for the new admins to clean up when they come onboard. ~~Gin-san (Talk) 11:54, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

Ok about the pages, but what about the photos? Lately a lot of people upload useless pictures like this is Facebook or anything. And sorry to sound so impatient but they need to come quickly. 90% of the edits are fake/vandalisms, either deleting the main page or adding false info, which is a little difficult for me to spot as I haven't finished all episodes yet. ZOLANTON (talk) 13:16, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

Same procedure. I have already given you rollback rights, which may come in useful for some of the pages with multiple edits. ~~Gin-san (Talk) 12:15, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

Request from Wikia Edit

Hi Gin-san,

We’re conducting a survey of Wikia’s most passionate Anime users. Your depth of knowledge on these topics inspires us to learn more about Anime and why it appeals to so many of our users. We’d appreciate if you took a few minutes to complete this short survey.

The first ten users to respond to this post saying they’ve completed the survey will receive a $20 Amazon gift card.

If you have any other Wikia friends that you think would be interested in taking this survey, please let me know! Thanks, Abarlas (talk) 23:43, April 3, 2013 (UTC) Take survey here:  https://wikia.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_dgRoStluxU61UeV

new imageEdit

Hello, I am having trouble of making a image file to be shown and displayed on a episode template, Do you know perhaps how I can make it be displayed?

No one knows how to help you if you do not show what the problem looks like or where the problem is located, since most users are not having this difficulty. It is best for you to post the link or screen shots and approach Wikia staff for help. I am no longer working on this wiki. ~~Gin-san (Talk) 08:41, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

4 Devas of Kabuki DistrictEdit

Okay so hello there all wiki editors who are reading this I am new to wikia and only joined to fix up the '4 Devas of Kabuki District' page ( If you don't read the manga there are 4 new devas). Now the four new devas are Sakata Gintoki, Shimura Tae, Azumi and Kurogame Katsuo; I've already edited their pages and moved Otose and Saigo Takamori to former devas. Although this is done I do not have the required editing skill to add these 4 to the 4 Devas page so if anyone could do this I would be thankful Archelepago (talk) 13:07, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

Hi there, thank you for your contribution. Just a small note, whatever edits you make, kindly ensure you spell the characters' names correctly. I won't be able to help since I am no longer working on this site, kindly approach other editors for assistance, or failing which, ask Wikia staff.
~~Gin-san (Talk) 14:37, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you! I do not really know very much about wiki but I will try to help to add things! Before you didn't need a user to edit things but I guess it is more convenient like this?

Application to be New Wiki AdministratorEdit

Hello Gin-san! My name is The Forgotten Beast, not sure if you remember me but to get to the point, I was hoping to ask you for your permission on adopting this wiki or for your permission to be granted administrative/bureaucrat status here. You can be sure that I will devote as much of my time to improving this wiki further and keeping a close eye on it. I am a faithful admin to all my wikis and have over 7 years of experience on wikia. I hope you'll consider my request, and whatever your decision I am thankful that you took time to read my request. Have a good day Gin-sama! -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 17:43, February 10, 2014 (UTC)

So sorry, I seemed to have forgotten to reply to this message here :)
You seemed to have gone MIA after Feb 2014 after a good long run of regular contributions to Gintama wiki, are you coming back anymore? :)
Do let me know if you are coming back

~~Gin-san (Talk) 12:16, September 20, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for my long absence, but ever since the anime ended I've been trying to catch up with the manga, so after February I decided to start reading it from chapter 1, however I'm still a little behind due to work and other personal affairs as well as due to a conflict that my main wiki (Toriko Wiki) had with a rival wiki which caused a whole mess where users from my wiki were getting harassed by the rival wiki. I guess after everything that happened, I must've forgotten my application for adoption here, but regardless I plan to devote my time to helping this wiki as an admin (if you're willing to allow it of course) and I know how important your other wiki is, as such if you would like I'll happily add links to the Gintama QWIKwiki in every article so users can check both wikis for correct and proper references. Whatever you decide, I will gladly accept and will understand your decision. Have a good day Gin-sama. :) -The Forgotten Beast (talk) 08:04, September 21, 2014 (UTC)
LOL, you sound busy. Settle your other stuff first, Gintama can wait :)
~~Gin-san (Talk) 08:01, September 25, 2014 (UTC)
If it's about the "rival wiki" then don't worry about it, I already contacted Wikia about it and I did all I could do on the matter. As for the personal matters, they won't impede my wiki duties, but if you still feel unsure I respect your decision, but I assure you that I always keep my wikis in tip top shape and well cared for.-The Forgotten Beast (talk) 09:08, September 25, 2014 (UTC)

Delete blank pages Edit

Hi. I know you haven't been active lately, but in hopes that you will log in again at some point, I will send you my request. Some editors made quite a mess lately and switched the characters' names. For example "Sakata Gintoki" was turned into "Gintoki Sakata". While I was trying to fix it, I had to rename pages and remove the redirections, which caused quite a number of blank pages in this Wikia. As a regular member, I don't have the power to delete pages entirely, which is why I'd like to ask you to delete the following pages: Blank Page, Blank Page 2, Blank Page 4, Blank Page 5, Blank Page 6, Gintoki Sakata, Shinpachi Shimura and Isao Kondou.

Thank you.

Matako (talk) 20:52, September 14, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for looking after this wiki. The aforementioned pages have been deleted as per request.

Matako (talk) 13:45, September 20, 2014 (UTC)
I re-looked at your contributions history. It appears you have qualified for criteria 1,2,3 & 5, which are mandatory for the contents-oriented wiki admin. Coding-oriented admin can be someone else, so you need not fulfill those criteria :)
~~Gin-san (Talk) 08:09, September 25, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for checking this for me. I may not have aimed for a higher position when I started here, but if I truly fulfill the required criteria for this position, then this sounds very tempting! I will very likely forward my application to you shortly.

Application to be New Wiki AdministratorEdit

Hi Gin-san, I'm Mary. I want to apply to be an admin of this wiki. I've not been here for long at all, but I really want to help contributing to this wiki, starting from writing the synopses and cleaning up redundant pages (which is really difficult, since no one beside you is an admin.) I'm not too good in coding, but enough to edit pages without using the visual text editor at all. I'm trying to devote my time as much as possible to complete pages, so I hope you will consider my application.

Thank you. - MoonyMary (talk) 07:51, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your interest in the Gintama wiki. Seeing as you only joined in August this year, I would suggest you get yourself familiarised with the wiki's operation first before attempting high level tasks like being admin for any wiki.
If you are really keen on being admin, please have a look at the Terms & Conditions stipulated on my profile page to see if you qualify.
Thank you once again and welcome to the Gintama world! :)

~~Gin-san (Talk) 11:54, September 20, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your welcome, Gin-san. :) To be honest, I've read the criteria carefully before applying to be an admin, and I'm sure that I qualify criteria #2, #5 (except Japanese) and #6. As of #4, I'm (re-)learning coding (for both real life and wiki-writing,) so I hope that counts.
Also, I've had several months of working in a Hetalia Wiki before coming here, so I hope that counts too. - MoonyMary (talk) 15:35, September 21, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. To be fair to other editors, partial qualification of criteria is not acceptable. Work from other wikis also do not count towards fulfilling the criteria. hope you will understand. Hope you do hang around long enough and re-apply in future :)
~~Gin-san (Talk) 08:00, September 25, 2014 (UTC)
Oh, it's okay. Thanks for considering my application anyway, Gin-san. :3 - MoonyMary (talk) 11:43, September 25, 2014 (UTC)

But if you are asking about being wiki admin, as you can see from my profile page, there are a number of criteria to fulfill to qualify as administrator on this wiki.
Please feel free to apply again once you fulfill those terms :)
Last but not least, a warm welcome to Gintama world!

Another RequestEdit

Hi again! I have another request. To cut a long story short, the user Ritsel created the page "Doujinshi", which contains a number of fan arts. Those could be copyrighted content, which may be a problem. Not to mention that a wiki is not a place for fan arts. As you can see on Ritsel's talk page, I already tried to address this issue, but the user did not reply. I know you're busy again and I know that it'll probably take some time for you to react to this because of that, but I'd like to ask you to delete this page.

Thank you in advance.

LOL, I think the copyright issue is more pertinent to the original creators than fan-arts. This wiki has been uploading loads of original content without the anime studio or manga creator's explicit approval in the first place :)
I have moved that page to the user's own page so that he/she can continue to share with the community what he/she likes.

My my, you sure reply quickly when one needs you. Thanks for moving the page, though!
Unfortunately though, I have witnessed a few cases where this became a problem. This is why, in rare cases wikis, and in common cases forums, strictly prohibit the usage of stocks without their original creators' permission. A recent and good example would be the currently biggest Naruto forum "Narutoforums", which constantly uses Naruto related fan art to create quite a number of new overall forum designs and banners for particular sections. They too always remind people to ask for the original artists' permission if a stock is used for these things due to the copyright issue. We may not forget that many fan arts are protected with a seal (like the famous DeviantArt seal people hate so much) to prevent people from copying their work without paying for a reason. But of course people are smart and manage to remove the seal and share the artwork as it is against the artists' will. Some artists track back their work and there we go. I really do think moving the fan art page to the user's own profile was a good decision.
Anyway, thank you again for replying and sorry I've troubled you with my request yet again.

Do we have forum discussion in here? Sorry for asking I'm kinda lost at it ^^;

Suggestions Edit

Hi Gin-san,

I've just had some suggestions to the structure of pages in the wiki. I once talked with Matako about one of them quite a long time ago, and she instructed me to discuss with you, so I hope this will help.

Firstly, I think we should create section tabs for character pages (e.g. History, Image Gallery, Relationship, etc.) for more clearance. We already have the content list, but personally, I find it too long in some (main) character pages (e.g. Sakata Gintoki, Kagura) let alone those with their pages incompleted. In addition, I think having the Image Gallery share the same page with the character's information is somewhat unfitting. Moving it to another tab might be more suitable for more images later on. There would be directing tabs on the top of the page, so it would not be too uncleared for the readers

A smaller suggestion is an option box for manga and anime photo of a subject (e.g. arcs, characters) in their infobox. Since the manga and anime are still ongoing, I think it is recommended to use the images of both versions.

Here are just my suggestions for the wiki later on, when it is more completed. So, I'd like to have your opinion on them to see if it's alright to carry them out in the future.

Thank you for reading this, and I'm sorry if it bothers you.

Deletion Request Edit

of page: http://gintama.wikia.com/wiki/Popularity_Polls in favor of http://gintama.wikia.com/wiki/Jump-Gintama_Polls

I don't believe regular users can delete pages, but those two links above have the same data, with the latter being much more detailed and complete.

Hi, I'd like to affiliate my wikia with this wiki. Here is our wordmark. Thank you in advance. Leonnn

Arc Aftermath Episodes/Chapters Edit

I apologize for bothering you but do arc aftermaths when it concerns some of these arcs count as part of them or are they separate?

/* New administrator for this wikia */ Edit

I think a new administrator should be needed to clean up this wikia,Because the orginal administartors are not coming back therefore there should be a new head administrator who should not only clean up every articles in Gintama wikia but to update them as well.



Especially that they should change the background ,Fill in more bonus segments and put on episode references in every episodes.



and also there should be more editors for this wikia as well.Jamesnight64598 (talk) 07:11, November 22, 2017 (UTC)
