We are trying to keep the number of image files down. The wiki is very big with thousands of images. We don't want images that do not have to do with Sailor Moon, on the wiki. Images uploaded through comments and wall posts will appear in the Sailor Moon Wiki image library, forming clutter.
If you must have an image on your profile, it needs to be labeled correctly, as stated here.
If you want to share fan-works and fan-fiction, please feel free to join the Sailor Moon wiki Discord server. We are trying to move away from the discussion forms and on to the discord server. Monitoring thousands of pages and images is already a stretch for the few editors we have.
We aren't trying to rain on anyone's party, we are simply trying to keep the wiki organized. Essentially, we are moving the party to discord.
Edit: another way to share media without adding to the wiki's image library is linking the image, rather than uploading it. This is preferred for users who want to stay and share their Sailor Moon fandom on the wiki.
I see that you had contacted Thesonicfan106 to get more information. While Thesonicfan106's is right in asking what proof, we normally don't ask for proof unless it is something very big (i.e. important to the plot or fiction of the series).
For future edits, citing the source of the info you've added in the edit summary can reduce the number of reverts or editing conflicts. If They revert your edit, even after giving information on the source of the added info, please message me again and I will talk to the editor about it.
Can you upgrade the EpPGSM Infobox templete to make it more like the Episode Anime templete but have it in a light purple? Same for the EpCrystal Infobox templete but in Cyan blue. Afterwards, I'll try to convert the templetes to articles, rename them to Episode Crystal and Episode PGSM, and finally revert them back to templetes.
You don't need to this right now by the way. You can take your time if you need to.
I was about to start editing the templates when I reread your message and was a bit confused. Why would you be converting them to articles, rename them, then revert them? This doesn't makes sense, to me. If you have a goal in mind for the templates that your current membership-status won't allow, please inform me and I, myself, will complete the task (If I find the action is required).
For now, I have changed the infoboxes' colors.
I Chose to go with dark/hot-pink for the PGSM episode boxes because I do not feel that the colour purple represents that series very well. I am aware that the anime episode infobox is also pink, but it is a lighter, softer pink.
Answer to your question: I tried doing the Templete name (example: Memorial Infobox) method once but it gave me an old template. I believe the same thing had happened a while back when you were creating the Games Infobox Template. That's why when I first created the new templates I had to create them as articles and revert them to templates.
I think I might need some little help creating the other Infobox templates that need to be upgraded if that's alright with you.
I looked at the history of the Chracter Infobox Template and saw how you upgraded it. I'm gonna try that method for some of the Infobox templates
The old template means the name is in use. A simpler way to do would be to copy the html from the new template, and paste it over the old template (in source mode). That would be upgrading it in a much more simple way.
I'm aware not all the villains weren't killed. That's why I said "largely contain".
I've never found a "List of the Deceased" or a deceased category to be useful. At this time, we are also trying to clean up the categories as there are multiple of the same ones, but with different casing or spelling (o vs ou). I may later on post a poll asking users if they would feel a deceased category is more helpful than not having one.
Thank you for your introduction! The only issues that really arise are trolls. We get bouts of them from time to time and all we can really do is block them. We have a low tolerance for suspicious behaviour because of how often we are plagued.
I just created the new version of the MOTD Infobox . I left it blank for now so that you can do the rest. Use the original template as a guide to help you create the new redisigned template for the Monsters of the Day.
Here's what the template should have:
Kanji / Kana:
First manga apperance:
First anime apperance:
First sera myu apperance
First Crystal apperance:
anime voiced by:
crystal voiced by:
Sera myu actor:
As for what it will look like, It must have a simliarity to the character infobox template's apperance but each must have diifferent colors depending whom they work for (see InfoboxMOTD)
The basic colors are:
Purple (representing the dark kingdom's Youma)
Yellow (representing the Dead Moon Circus' Lemures)
and Golden Yellow (Representing the Sailor Animamates' Phage)
These are from the original template
The news colors for the other Villain organzations should be:
Green, Light Green, or Dark Green (representing the Makai Tree's Cardians)
and Dark Purple (representing the Death Busters' Daimons)
These should be the colors for the redesigined template.
As for the other templates, I'll let you work on them. If you need my help with them, contact me via message wall and I'll get to work on it.
I hope we can continue rennovating this wiki together!
I've filled out the majority of the info; I did make a few changes though.
I'm not going to include "gender" because they are monsters, and not people. It also saves a lot of breath on people debating the "gender" of a fake creature... (*facepalm* the whole Fish Eye thing....)
There is a way to make it so that the infobox's color changes when you enter in certain letters, but I need to research how as I have not implamented that code before.
So, you can begin adding the template now, or wait until I have added the color changer. Your choice!
Just following up regarding the ad I saw on the renovation announcement page now that I know it's still current. I would love to help wherever you need ^_^.
The skills I currently have are:
-Basic knowledge of HTML
-Understanding of how to use both Visual and Source Mode (though I really only use Source mode and the Preview feature)
-Basic knowledge of wikimarkup with some experience in tables & templates
-Basic understanding of image uploading and categorization
-Confident with English grammar
-Familiarity with the Editor's Guide/Q&A page
That's about it! You can reach out to me here or through Discord.
Thanks for working so hard on the wiki! I use it a lot for reference!
Thank you for reaching out to help the Sailor Moon Wiki! Your skills are ideal for helping with the renovations and your communication with us appreciated greatly! A large portion we ask of editors is mostly in communication. Asking Magic or myself questions and announcing your actions is important to us. This allows for more precise edits to be made and saves energy on potential time wasting.
Now, I will ask, is there anything specific you were wanting to do? It can be as simple as working on one article to wiki-wide formatting i.e. making sure all character pages use HTML to display the image galleries rather than the gallery template.
Thanks for your encouragement and patience! I've been looking around to try to get an answer to your question, since I didn't have a strong preference at first. After considering, I think being assigned one page at a time is probably the best for me at the moment since my free time really comes and goes, so I will be less of a roadblock in my away time. Since the project is currently still getting all the character pages up to the new standard, could I pitch in there? Maybe one of the Sailor Animamates to start but really any character you'd like to assign is fine by me ^-^. Thanks again!
Could the pages and any reference to a character's appearance and voice actor in Crystal be changed from "reboot/remake" to "Crystal" since Crystal isn't a reboot/remake of the first anime, but an adaptation of the manga?
A troll named Dykedonkeydick47 (https://sailormoon.fandom.com/wiki/User:Dykedonkeydick47) has vandalized the "Usagi Tsukino / Sailor Moon (manga)" page and the "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon R" page. I undid the vandalism for the former page, but when I tried to do so for the latter, I couldn't get the content back. Do you think you could do it?
I've blocked them. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
For future reference: If you are unable to revert an edit back, go into the edit history and find the last correct edit and copy it in "source mode". Paste the previous version's source mode into the current version's "source mode" and save.
