It is however, advisable to create your own unique username rather than to use anoymous/IP address, since many other users may use the same IP address and therefore be directed to this talk page, which is actually only addressed to you. If your query is related to this wiki, it is best to discuss it either in the [[Forum:Index]] under 'Watercooler' topic or on any of the users' talk pages.

== OP & ED layout suggestion ==
Hey there, it's me again xD
And, like always, I've got a little question concerning the layout ^^; Erm.. wouldn't it be easier, but mostly more neat, if we'd added English and Romaji titles and used the Kanji ones for the header? EX: ED16:サヨナラの空 (sayonara no sora) by Qwai. I think it would look better if we took the Romaji and English out and just used the Kanji title.
I'm currently editing the 16th ending and to show, what exactly I mean with my above blabla, here an example:
「サヨナラの空」 by Qwai
:Title (romaji): Sayonara no Sora
:Titel (translation): Goodbye to the sky
:[ Qwai Official Website]
:*作詞 Lyrics - Qwai
:*作曲 Song-writer - Qwai
:*編曲 Music Arrangement - Qwai
:*gr8! records
And something more that bothers me. Why do we use this: 作詞 Lyrics? I mean this is an english Wiki (for a japanese series, I know...) why do we use actual kanji for something that doesn't exactly relate to the show?
Just a suggestion ^^
And is it my computer or is the last poll conflicting with the layout? oO; I get this when I'm visiting the site:
[[User:Nukaru|Nukaru]] 15:29, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
:# page name - I am ok with just kanji/romaji pagename provided all the necessary redirects from romaji and maybe english page names are included, but the romaji/english names must be inside the page, as what you have indicated above
:# 作詞,作曲,編曲 text - regarding the lyrics/composer etc in kanji, LOL, I think I explained before, this template will be used for the episode ending credits, which is following exactly what the TV ending credits show, though I guess I can probably tweak the template to show certain things only on OST page and more things on Episodes page.
You can do without them if you wish, I'll see what to do later, though if your pagenames are already in kanji/kana, to me it makes no difference if 作詞,作曲,編曲 are also inside, :)
:3 what browser are you using? You should see this:

:: strange, I thought I tested on FF3.62, Chrome 4.0 & IE8, but maybe I forgot to test that page ...but anyway, it's gone for good ;)
:: looks fine, but can we perhaps standardise the following:
::# the movie name should come on top? just like ED15 or OP2 etc. For all we know, there may be 'other' movies in the pipeline, XD (''shiroyasha''!!!)
::# the romaji readings in ''italics'' (I know I have not been consistent myself, LOL) except for the names of people. The lyrics' romaji readings are all in italics for the OP & ED pages
::# my translation for the Japanese name of the Benizakura movie is not quite accurate, that version was more for making the layout 'look nice', XD. It should be "Movie Version - Gintama - New Interpretation Benizakura Chapter"
::# in the case of wonderful days, there isn't really any romaji but only wasei, how do you want to show it? 2 times? under both romaji and english titles?
lastly, thanks for all the effort (and Charlesg154 too), really appreciate it! ~~[[User:Gin-san|Gin-san]] <sup>([[User_talk:Gin-san|Talk]])</sup> 11:36, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, concerning the template.
::#We could just take out the Movie and title and only write it down, where it really needs to be. So that the template begins with the japanese title. [[User:Nukaru/Sandbox:2|See here.]]
::#Changed Romaji to ''italics''.
::#Well the title is: 劇場版 銀魂 新訳紅桜篇 which would make it: ''gekijouban gintama shinyaku benisakura-hen'' - Movie Version Gintama - New Translation/Interpretation - Benisakura Chapter.
::#Well, the actual romaji for ワンダフルデイズ (Wonderful days) is ''wandafurudeizu'', since it's even written in the actual lyrics.

It has been built into the template that when <nowiki><ref></nowiki> tags are detected, <nowiki><references/></nowiki> tag will be activated.

== Re: using template for your references? ==
I'm going to try that template suggestion you mentioned earlier, though I am still not sure how to do it.
So I make a page for it, then make the content just like what was written in [[Template:Chbook1]], right? That's it? I got confused after reading this [[Template:Documentation]]. [[User:Bronx01|Bronx01]] 13:39, June 18, 2010 (UTC)
: yep, you are on the right track, here's a step-by-step process:
::# create a new page but with the page name prefix "template:" followed by whatever page name you want, e.g. page name on [[:template:chbook1]] says '''Chbook1'''
::# then add in the contents, it can be anything, wiki tables, or text or images etc, but since you are doing citations, it only requires text, can copy the contents from chbook1 and modify
::# after putting in the book/source details, create parameters using 3 curly braces, 3 for opening brace, and 3 to close, you can use the <nowiki>{{{pagenum}}}</nowiki> that is in chbook1 template and change the pagenum parameter to anything, e.g. pgnum or vol-no or lesson-chap etc. Example the contents of your template can be -->
<pre> ''your book name'', Vol. {{{vol-num}}}, Lesson {{{lesson-num}}}, Page(s) {{{pg-num}}}.</pre> and this will give you ---> <div class="maindiv" style="text-align:center; padding:15px; ">''Gin Channel! (Gintama Official Character Book)'', Vol. '''5''', Lesson '''135''', page(s) '''64'''.</div> in the article that you use it in.
::4. then on every article that you want to use the template, put them in this clean unfilled in format first -->
{{YOURPAGENAME (the prefix template is not optional since the 2 curly braces already tell wiki that this is a template)
| vol-num=
| lesson-num=
| pg-num=
after that put in the relevant page numbers, volumes etc.
::5. another way to present the template above is in 1 single line, good for template with very few parameters, e.g
<pre>{{YOURPAGENAME | vol-num=XX | lesson-num=XX | pg-num=XX }}</pre>
::6. and then save the article, and done!
::7. don't worry about making mistakes since you can always undo, just experiment a bit
::8. if you are REALLY worried, you can create a sandbox just like [[User:Gin-san/Sandbox:1|my user page]] on your own user-page and experiment there without worries
::9. don't worry about the <nowiki>{{#if: XXX}}</nowiki> parser for now, just take it 1 step at a time
::10. LOL, hope the above is clear? You can also just copy the code above and modify ~~[[User:Gin-san|Gin-san]] <sup>([[User_talk:Gin-san|Talk]])</sup> 16:26, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Excuse me, but could you please stop deleting my redirect pages? Most of them are from the Crunchyroll translation, and as that is about one of the only places you can view Gintama online legally, I don't expect people to find the pages without those redirects. [[User:Nexorath|Nexorath]] 19:05, August 27, 2010 (UTC)
: You may not expect people to find the pages without those redirects, but I believe mature users know how to use the search field to search using keywords. By doing such blatant redirects, you are effectively limiting the search function's ability to source out all the articles with that particular keyword. If you have not noticed, the Monaco skin does not provide for separate 'Go' and 'Search' buttons unlike the Monobook and Vector skins used commonly elsewhere. Please stop making these unnecessary redirects as I have already explained that they turn up erroneously on the widget as new pages.
: Crunchyroll is NOT the final authority on English translations, and they are not the only legal means of watching Gintama online. There are Japanese broadcasts online too.
: Furthermore, I do not regard the edits made by anonymous IP addresses as yours, as there can be 1,001 users using these IP addresses. If they are really your work, it is to your benefit to log in and register those edits as yours.
: Until the new wiki administrators come onboard and change the wiki's policies, I, as the only wiki administrator at the moment, deem these redirects not needed.

:: Do be careful when redirecting categories, as categories may be used to generate lists in categorytree extension, generally category should not point to articles, since they are of entirely different namespace and function
:: You can use the template:Delete to tag any file you wish to delete, just grab hold of the oldid or permalink of the image/article if there are multiple copies and add the template to the top.

Revision as of 12:14, February 18, 2011

Page naming

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"

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)
