  • We need to start discussing the merging of pages. There are still way too many. Have you checked any further about a Discord server for the wiki? One one of the servers for another wiki I moderate, there is a channel for the wiki editors/admins which I think would be useful.

  • Just letting you know that I am going to transfer the information on the "Planet Power, Make Up!" pages to the character's senshi page; under a header "Transformation".

  • Going through the image library, I want to instate that "1 image per user" thing you brought up. There is a lot of fanart, cosplay, and fanfic type stuff. It's making it difficult to curate the image library as well. Some users seem to use their user page as an "account" and leave. Similar to the way I guess Deviantart would be. I'm not sure how many users recognize that the images they upload are stored in the wiki's image library. There are over 17K files and that needs to be tended to.

    I usually make a page regarding image  names and uploaded images as a rules and regulations guide. I am going to do that for here because the wiki is still messy.

    • I'm largely free most of the days. I also need to discuss a possible problematic user.

  • I'm concerned about DuchessDream. She literally deleted almost every page about a certain sailor moon actor or actress, Musical actress and voice actress. Please have a talk with her about this. She is unnesscary deleting pages that literally aren't stubs and have info! Basically she deleted actor pages that are literally full of info. I consider this unnesscary deleting.

    • Sorry for not emntioning this sooner to you. I was planning on announcing it but it seems things got ahead of themselves. Me and DuchessDream have discussed it and we figured it was time for some change in the wiki format. We decided that actors articles do not really contribute much to information on Sailor Moon, itself, as it is one note in their career, and that the wiki needs to be cleaned up. I do think that the wiki has become quite over saturated with articles on actors across multiple languages. I'm sorry you weren't informed sooner, but this isn't vandalism, but moreso a make over of the wiki.

    • It's alright. I understand this wiki needs a bit of a clean up.

    • I would have explained had you asked on my message wall. If you feel something is off or don't understand the changes, please leave a message on my wall and I will be more than happy to explain what's going on (usually an announcement is made for large-scale changes but sometimes mini ones happen but still cause some users to become concerned.) But thank you for your vigilance and concern.

  • Hello, thank you again for the bureaucratship. I have gone through all the "Unused Photos" and deleted the ones that were:old/low quality, duplicates, and spam/non-Sailor Moon related (Even warned a user or two about their uploads).

    I am now working on cleaning up pages. Some things I meant to ask earlier were:

    1. What is acceptable for me to do and decide on my own?
    2. Do you want any changes to be proposed to you first?
    3. Am I allowed to delete pages I see as unnecessary?
    4. Am I allowed to change the format of pages?
    5. Can I change the theme of the wiki (i.e. the background, cursor, favicon. etc)?

    The reason I ask is because there are a lot of pages that are very short and are essentially copied form Wikipedia.

    The main types of pages I want to delete are: Actor-specific pages, Artist-specific pages , and Company-specific pages.

    They are largely copied from Wikipedia or other database sites. A summary of the actor or company is not necessary on a wiki about Sailor Moon; even if they were involved with Sailor Moon at one point or another. A Wiki usually centers around the lore/story, characters, and in some cases: merchandise (CDs, DVDs, Books, Special Events). So pages dedicated to a voice actor or actress, detailing their life and roles is straying from the main focus. A link to their Wikipedia page when they are mentioned is usually the standard.

    Please respond when you can.

    P.S. I hope I don't sound like I'm reprimanding or anything; I'm only trying to be as articulate as I can be while giving examples to support my statements. No anger is intended!

    • The issue I've had with tabs is that I have noticed in the past that they could only be edited in source mode, which is tricky for some users. So maybe hold off on that for the time being.

      One thing I have been thinking of doing was combining the Sailor Senshi (and Tuxedo Mask) pages with their respective civilian pages. I'm guessing that the reason they were originally separated was because that was how Wikimoon did it, when this wiki was first made and the formatting never changed. If we do that, that will also be a big project of moving content, and we would have to decide which name of the article to title it.

      But for now, we can just focus on clean-up and we can discuss more of the future formatting later.

    • Yes, I agree; tabbers are helpful for viewing, but difficult to edit. At this time, deleting, renaming and fixing broken links so that there is a more manageable amount of pages on the wiki should be the focus. I suspect that the wiki will go from 4,400+ pages to around 3,500 or less. There are still a lot of very short pages. I will make "dumping pages" for similar info to be pasted i.e. the attacks from the different video games. Many of the attacks have a dedicated page with 2 sentences. Putting them onto one page to be sorted later will also help reduce the amount of pages.

      Also, I don't know if you were aware, but removing a page's categories before deleting them saves a large amount of hassle. I have found that when deleting categories, it will often still list a deleted page. So removing all of the categories from a page before deleting a category is the best course of action I've found (unless there is an easier way that I am not aware of).

  • Hello, I'd like to request a status change to adminship. There are a lot files I'd like to delete or rename to clean up the wiki but lack the status to do so. I have been an admin of other wiki for a few years so I am trust worthy and know the basics of code.

    The wiki is very large and I would like to help clean it up. But I will understand if declined.

    Please respond when you can!

    • I can make you a Bureaucrat, if that's alright. I'm just concerned about handing out admin status since we have a lot of absent admins currently. Would that be alright?

        Loading editor
    • If you gave me bureaucrat status, that means I could just give myself admin rights lol. You don't need to worry about me being an inactive admin. If I do happen to become inactive or have to go on hiatus, I'd let you know.

    I reformatted a page why where some my edits reverted?

  • Hello, I am not sure if it is you I spoke with about making the video game menus, but I would like to ask if it would be alright to make a menu page for the music? rather than rely on the category page. I have implemented quite a few on other wikis. here are some examples:

    1. Header and Gallery
    2. Gallery only
    3. Tabber Gallery

    Respond when you can,
