We should change Gray and Jellal's profile pics!

I think maybe we should change the profile pics of Gray and Jellal on this site and try more new and updated pics.I think we should change these two because they are two of the most attractive male characters in Fairy Tail and their current pics don't really show that off!Thanks!--210.4.65.12 11:42, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

I don't recall any discussion that brings this to mind, so I'll just announce it here.

From what's seen on the Main Page, there are two sections consisting of six portals each linking to different characters from the series. It appears that it's Protagonists on the top half while there are Antagonists on the lower half. Since that appears to be the case, why is it that Ikaruga is featured? Compared to the others (perhaps Ultear as well), she's a very minor character who's made significant appearances towards the latter half of one arc. I would propose that she be replaced with someone such as Brain/Zero. He is a major antagonist during the Oración Seis arc and I believe he would be better suited than Ikaruga to be on the Main Page in that particular area.
Glass Heart (GHeart) 07:35,12/29/2012 

Support Support - Yeah... I was looking at that, too. Brain/Zero is a good choice, seeing as the antagonists are listed after the protagonist, and Brain being the main antagonist in the OS arc. Sleep time ( ._.)~.Chibi StingMega Chibi Cobra 07:40, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

Support Support - - for Ikaruga's change. I do remember at one point that it was said there needed to be some sort of a male-female ratio though. Angel is far more significant than Ikaruga... .:Umy:.Juvia'sPictureForUmneiSignature 08:28, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

Neutral Neutral - The Main Page will be redesigned by the DOD... Changes here won't mean much... Herme 12:32,12/29/2012

Oppose Oppose - If it's going to be replaced, it has to be another female antagonist in order to keep the male-to-female ration. And as Herme said, the DOD is going to redesign it later anyway. RelikzBickslow Doll3Talk 18:28, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry you guys, but I'm going to have to close this vote. We have Ikaruga because, as Reli and Nei-chan have pointed out, there is a specific male-to-female ratio that must be maintained. And the last time I checked, Brain/Zero is not a female. >_> Ikaruga can be exchanged, but she can only be exchanged by another female antagonist.   Rai  Talk     19:38,12/29/2012

Angel for now and once Minerva is colored, can she be included there also? Just an early proposal. Hihi. KOKOAraña Anime SquareROCHAS 02:31, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
Minerva might go up there at some point since the ratio is not complete yet and since I couldn't find any female antagonist that I thought were good enough. :/   Rai  Talk     03:13,12/30/2012

Hey, now that Chaos uploaded HQ versions of the Slider's images, I decided to check it out and it came to my attention that the option "Locations" in the Slider isn't that cool :/ It redirects to Earthland's article, despite saying that it would be a "List of Locations" (poor Edolas). Also, it doesn't seem a very popular page (nor a veeeery important one, let's come) So what do you guys think about changing it?

In order of preference, I will be voting for Makarov's Fairy Law, Cana's Fairy Glitter and Natsu's Dragon Roar. But yeah, I'd like to stress my preference for Makarov because not only does the Magic he is utilizing appears ambiguous enough to embody the term "Magic", but he is a notable character in his own right.

Ikaruga and Faust

This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion is:
The change will not be made.
Please do not edit this discussion.

Why is Ikaruga in the front page? She is entirely minor character... Faust is a bit less minor, but I can't say he is a main character either... There is a plenty of more fitting characters, like Wendy, Carla, Gajeel, Juvia, Laxus, Makarov...

Just, what is the reason for these two? Sligneris (talk) 18:53, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

It's to keep the ratio of male/female, protagonist/antagonist characters even. Miskos3 Message 19:00, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

But, it does not make sense. There are 2 villain females and 3 protagonist ones. There is no kept ratio. Sligneris (talk) 19:05, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

This was already discussed. It was said that all present characters will remain.Chibi StingMega Chibi Cobra 19:02, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

Recent Anime Episode Section...

This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion is:
Option 2 will be put into place and the needed vote conducted through the Sorcerer Magazine Monthly.
Please do not edit this discussion.


Hey guys...

I've been thinking about this for a while, and I dunno if anyone else has been or if the admins have already discussed this and sorted something out, but due to the hiatus of the anime, the "recent anime episode" section on our Main Page is a little useless/meh.

The way I see it, there are 4 things that can be done right now in response to this, and I just want to see what you guys think about this:

  1. The recent anime episode section stays as it is. This will mean that episode 175 will be stuck on the Main Page until 176 airs... whenever. I realise that it is the "recent" anime episode section, meaning that it should have the most recent episode, but I don't particularly like this, as I think it would be nice to have some change/I don't really want it there forever.
  2. The episode featured in this section could be changed every month. My idea is that maybe alongside the featured pic/quote/article, we could pick an episode of the month that is featured on the Main Page. I dunno what you guys think about this, but this was the idea I had so it's not stagnant for the next year/however long it takes the anime to return.
  3. We could just put a link to the list of episodes/anime page with a little summary of the anime and it's episodes, production studio etc.
  4. The section is deleted altogether >___>

As far as I can see, these four options are pretty much it, but hey, that's why I'm putting this here, cause you guys might have some other ideas.

So... what do you guys think? Is this even a problem for you? >___>

Support Support 2 -*clap clap clap for Carrot* ^____^ When I started reading this, my idea was to put something like "Featured Anime" section instead, which is Carrot's number 2. We can't have the 175 there for too long, at least we have to change it so the viewers could read different ones every week/month maybe and not the same thing again and again. We could put it up there until the anime starts to air episodes again, then we could change it back to "Recent Anime". Red SigHearts 4:41PM, April 23, 2013

change
Please do not edit this discussion.

Riding the coattails of another Characters vote, I'd like to propose another change. Honestly, at this point in the series, I'm getting a little tired of seeing Ikaruga's face on the main page. I understand there hasn't been a change yet due to "ratio", "gender" and "allegiance" etc. so I decided to propose Minerva and am requesting the removal of Ikaruga. She's much more of a villian than Ikaruga was and has appeared plenty more times with much more relevance than the handful of chapters Ikaruga appeared in. Plus shes female so she pretty much fits the bill. I believe this hasn't been done yet due to the lack of proposition so here it is.

Support Support - Away with the birdie! bring in the Sabertooth-lady :Umnei:Juvia&#039;sPictureForUmneiSignature 00:50, May 10, 2013 (UTC)

Magic

Hello, I was just hovering my mouse over those tabs on the wiki, and realized that under "Universe > Magic", there is another link to Magic. It is the same link but just different section of the page... I think that that link is completely redundant as it only takes scrolling to get through that section... I was thinking that it should be removed since that "Magic" can already be clicked under "Universe" and take you to the exact same page.

Edit: Same goes for the List of Fights, it is under the FIGHTS tab, but they both are linked to exact same page, why is it even included under the "Fight" tab with a fight page? are we having a Fight-ception here? ..::ShinShinTo::. 12:19, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

Proposing another change~ After looking at the portal,I just feel like Mirajane's panel looks out of place and could be replaced for Wendys... she fulfills the "ratio", "gender" and "allegiance" factor when it comes to choosing the panel characters and Wendy just seems to be more important than Mira, and Wendy is usually in the same group as Team Natsu (some album artwork, the battle vs. Hades etc.) So... let me know what you think!

Support Support - I too agree that Wendy would fit better. And i also think this isn't the best pic of Wendy. Maybe something in her GMG outfit.

Also why are both Zeref and Hades on there? Shouldn't one of them be replaced with an antagonist from another arc, like Brain/Zero or Byro?

Support 2 - Fine. Dull.gif Well, I knew Wendy's much more relevant to the story than Juvia is, however, I stick to whom I like better, which is just so wrong. This voting isn't really to change Mirajane to someone who we like far better, because if we were to do that, then this voting would lose its sense at all. What? =_= I know I suggested and voted for Juvia too D:< We vote to change Mirajane into someone more important to the story, which would be Wendy - who appeared more than Juvia and Mira.

Support 2 - When dealing with characters who appear on the main page, it should be the ones that people are most likely going to be searching for - which will be the ones most relevant to the story. It's why the main antagonists and the majority of Natsu's core group are displayed. Wendy is much more relevant as a main character rather then support characters like Mirajane and Juvia.

chapter 337 summary

I'm new so this is probably the wrong place to write this but about the summary for chapter 337 since it only showed future Lucy glowing after the gates were destroyed it is likely that Lucy did not actually go to heaven but actually come back to life (since the situation in which she died had become impossible) and was transported back to her her own time which would be when fairy tail is leaving crocus city after the dragon attack.--Roax206 (talk) 08:22, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

is faust really that big of a character to be on the main page? i mean yeah he was the antagonist for a relatively big arc but even so he barely did any more than say knightwalker or the other members of the royal army did until the end of it and even then he was kind of bland bar the dorma anim thingy, just feel like a more prominent character would make more sense (eg Makarov, or another antagonist like Mard Geer or something) Hewy (: (talk) 22:08, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

Since im the only one working on it, I'll go ahead and update anyone that cares. The main page will be redesigned however there are some problems. We voted on a really cool style for the new page but its very difficult to code. The person who originally made the code for it left the wiki and so I have to sit down and really learn how it all works to get it to work for us. On top of that, Wikia has disabled JS for the time being as they had an attack on the site. I can't do much until that gets re-enabled. But when everything is done. Faust will be included as an antagonist, but there will be many more as well due to the nature of the new slider we will be using which will allow us to feature many more characters-- God · Pray · 22:16,9/13/2015

Suggestions main page

Hi I've been looking at the Wiki and I was wondering if it's possible to add/change a few things. I think if the following changes are implemented it could boost member contribution and help new fans.

Add a short synopsis that introduces the series to new fans. For example:
Fairy Tail is a manga series written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima. The story centers around the adventures of Natsu Dragneel, a member of the wizard guild Fairy Tail, as he searches the fictional world of Earth-land for the dragon Igneel. During his quest, he makes a bunch of friends and enemies.

Contribution box
Fairy Tail is a wiki dedicated to everything about the Manga and Anime Fairy Tail created by Hiro Mashima. We aim to archive Fairy Tail and all related material. And as a fan of the series you can help us out! Join our many Guilds and see where you can lend your many talents. Be part of our journey into making the Fairy Tail Wiki the best one ever!

Instead featured picture a featured villain
This triggers the visitor to go to that page and see why it's featured.

Spoiler warning
Add a spoiler warning before getting to the featured article section. That way readers don't accidentally read the latest developments in the series. --Zuleika B (talk) 09:55, July 12, 2019 (UTC)

In my opinion adding a Adding a short synopsis that introduces the series to new fans is not needed since such intro already exist in the Fairy Tail (Series) page since that page itself is about the fairy tail series as a whole. Adding it in the mainpage makes it seems that the wiki is only limited to the main manga which already ended and the anime series which is about to end but its actually not since the whole wiki also has infos from other sources such as spinoffs, movies, games and more aside from the main manga and anime series. I think the intro itself should be more generalized or neutral instead of only focusing stuffs about the manga and anime.

As for the contribution box i think that can be added in the mainpage but the wiki guilds are currently inactive and promoting it to have members while no trusted and active editor to oversee it will be counterproductive since people who wants to contribute should follow a uniformed format and quality all over the wiki. At best if they really want to contribute then they can just do it on their own for now and familiarize with the wiki's format and policies. Back then there are random editors who wanted to join the guilds without actually ever contributing to the wiki.

As for changing the featured image to featured villain i personally don't agree with it for now since various iconic villains are already listed in the mainpage making it redundant, next switching from one villain to another will be very limiting since there aren't that many villains that are worth featuring and at most a lot of them were already featured before so it's likely that they'll just be repeated over and over again compared to a fairy tail image being featured which is more broader like in the past we also featured movie posters to promote the movies, manga image to promote the latest manga being released and now anime images to promote the latest anime episode. So i think since the anime series is about to end its better to focus on that first and once its over the featured image could then focus on the fairy tail sequel images to promote it too.

When it comes to adding a Spoiler warning for the featured article i believe it's unnecessary since the whole wiki is already filled with spoilers. Even by just using the internet will have anyone be exposed to spoilers be it fan arts, social medias, blogs, forums, videos, wikipedia pages and news articles. The way this wiki sees it is that once the latest fairy tail related informations were released then encountering spoilers everywhere should already be expected. Im sure even if this wiki never existed spoilers will still be unavoidable especially when the main manga has already ended years ago and the anime series is about to end soon. LightningGeistLaxus Chibi 12:12, July 12, 2019 (UTC)

Hi. I'll begin slightly off-topic: please, whoever did it, revert the changes done to the character portal. It looks ugly with three rows, not to mention that the space between row 2 and 3 is smaller than between row 1 and 2. The single manga picture makes it look really bad. Such changes should be discussed first. @LG, @Nc

Short synopsis

I'm fine with this. If it's a short paragraph that won't take much place, it can only help.

Contribution box

As LG mentioned, the guilds on the wiki haven't been in function for a long time, however, there are still leftover jobs, so I'd suggest condensing them into a single "guild" page - i.e. list all the tasks that need to be done in a clever format (summaries, pages, pictures needed, etc.) and then link that on the main page.

Featured villain (or any other type of character, really...)

I'd start doing this after the anime is over. For now, it features an image from each new episode every week, for a week. I'd like to keep doing this until the end of the series' run and then start featuring other things.

Spoiler warning

I also don't think the spoiler warning is necessary. It never was. It's obvious that the wiki is full of information about the series, so entering it while not caught up is just asking for obvious problems.

Rows Voting

This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion is:
2 rows
Please do not edit this discussion.

Voting for 3 rows character portals, top 2 rows are main/prominent side characters, both row all villains. Other wikis like my hero academia manage 3 rows fine plus it's outdated like with alot of things on the wiki, 14 characters doesn't express well FT's big cast and it'll encourage more users to click on few characters they're curious on and possibly edit. Alvarez is longest story arc with no reflection in the character portals. Me and Lightning both thought it looks fresh and updated, just removing it is disencouraging when it comes to editing for me when the wiki doesn't have many editors anymore so for the ones that still edit it's refreshing... that's my case, it adds to the wiki and takes away nothing, adds more variety and I've already looked at the coding and it's fine and everything is readable

We have an entire Characters page that displays how big the cast of FT is; the point of the portal was always to display the same amount of protagonists and antagonists, and there is virtually no reason to change it. As I said, from visual point of view, it was bad; three rows just don't look good with our design and even the MHA one is questionable, but they also don't have the final row with the guilds, in our case it actually creates 4 rows that take up a huge amount of space and it just looks bad. At MHA wiki, they have other elements on the page that are big(ger), so it works somewhat. It wouldn't, and didn't here. Not to mention the space between rows not being the same, and that one manga image being out of place, both visually and otherwise. Also, in the future maybe consult other active users about such major changes.  Miskos3  Message  15:33, July 16, 2019 (UTC)

Hi guys! 久しぶり! After going back and looking at the proposed portal change... I tend to agree with Misk. >__< Three rows for a character portal in general doesn't bother me and the three row portal works for the MHA main page, but for our main page it does indeed make it look clunky rather than sleek (as it was intended).

Mard Geer in the row

I noticed that the thumbnail used for the row is different to the profile photo in Mard's Character page. I checked all the other ones and they all seem to match with their own character page, and only Mard is different. Should it stay with the consistency to Mard's thumbnail be the same with the character page or change the character page to match with the homepage thumbnail. Tonyojimbo (talk) 07:29, August 8, 2019 (UTC)

We can just leave it as it is since the there was a vote on mard geer's profile image and the image seen in his personal page was voted by the majority. If we used that same image for the main page then it will create an inconsistent format with the rest of the profile photos listed in those rows.

So in the end mard geer's profile page will have the image voted by the majority of the editors and his image for the main page will follow the used by the rest for the sake of consistency in the main page.LightningGeistLaxus Chibi 08:45, August 8, 2019 (UTC)

Reddit Discord replacing the Wiki Chat

This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion is:
Reddit Discord will replace the wiki chat
Please do not edit this discussion.

Good Day, User:AstonishingSpiderMan brought up the idea of replacing the current wiki chat with the fairy tail discord used by the fairy tail reddit. I will be posting the things we have discussed below and I am hoping veteran fairy tail wiki editors would chime in since it would be very suspicious if there would be a surge of new users responding to this thread out of nowhere.

Here is what we have talked about:

So from the moment I got into Fairy Tail; I wanted to have most if not all avenues that discuss the series connected with one another. This does not mean I would run every avenue or that I wanted control over all of them, the opposite I wanted each avenue to be its own thing but be interconnected like the guild. No matter where you chat to know that you'd be welcomed in the other forums and appreciated. I wanted the passion of Mashima to be shared by all that's why SorcererWeekly (the site to find the spin off and the sequel) is a thing and why discord became a thing. Simply put, I want there to be a hub for all things Mashima and all things EZ and FT. With a decent following on Discord and on Reddit we want to continue to grow and incorporate more of the fandom and different parts of the fandom. The wikia has always been one place I wanted to incorporate more but with some resentment from godisme2 and myself there was never a real opportunity, I want us to get past that so we can make these places active. Now, what will the Wikia gain out of this on Discord:

1. There will be an official discord for it ----> https://discord.gg/fairytail where you'll be able to discuss the newest releases, have a section of your own (more on this later), and be able to instantly communicate with others in the fandom to help grow and improve what you would want to.

2. Discord is basically instant chat with channels and categories (sections), I apologize if you knew this already. On the discord you and your staff will have:

a. Dedicated Server Roles (FT Wikia Admin) b. Dedicated Channels (help discuss among yourselves any changes or updates you wish to make to the ft wikia pages) c. Will have access to new user base that could help with the wikia and continue the hard work the users and admin do in ft wikia.

Now, I am sure you are wondering okay but who are you? Well I run the Fairy Tail and Edens Zero reddit pages. Founded and run SorcererWeekly. I'm a huge fan and advocate for Mashima and the series he provides us. Above all that I'm just a guy who wants to have Mashima's fandom all connected. AstonishingSpiderMan (talk) 17:04, February 7, 2020 (UTC)

I get what you are saying about having all things be connected with each other and i appreciate it. As for the having an official discord where we'll be able to discuss the newest releases, have a section of our own, and be able to instantly communicate with others in the fandom to help grow and improve what the wiki would want to is promising. But i would like to share my thoughts about it too.

The reason why this wiki did not incorporate an official discord to replace the wiki chat is due to the lack of active fairy tail wiki members that can take on the responsibility to moderate the said discord. Since the main series have ended a lot of active and veteran users moved on and prioritized with other things such as real life responsibilities, those users who are still active here are for the most part are juggling their personal time while also helping out the wiki as much as they can.

If a discord is going to be connected to the wiki its very likely that due to limited active members that there might be no one who can manage the discord that can represent the wiki. On a personal note i personally dont want to oversee a discord since im already overseeing the wiki and its discussions forum and seeing that the other members of the wiki not as active as before its likely that the others will also not be able to do the same especially since personal responsibilities will also take up a lot of their time.

You've mentioned about dedicated channels which will help us discuss among ourselves on any changes or updates we wish to make to the ft wikia pages. That works too but for a very long time the wiki is set up to have the wiki talk pages be the place where users can discuss fairy tail related concerns and changes for the sake of consistency and documentation, future editors can also look back at it as reference or if a clarification is needed. Let's say a discussion was made in the discord and majority of the participants agreed to something without the wiki's knowledge does that mean what the people in discord decided upon will be implemented? and i am not sure but can you look back on past discussions in the discord that took place months or years ago? Coz in my experience being able to see past discussions about something helped people understand why certain things are the way they are in the wiki especially when there are some people who insist doing their own thing or what they see is right while ignoring what the wiki decided upon as well as its format and rules.

Right now lets say you want to talk about Juvia's page then her talkpage is the main place to do it and nowhere else, if people stopped using the talkpage over the discord then i feel like there will be confusion since such changes was mainly discussed in the discord. I fear is that since most people will favor using the discord then its possible that it will now decide on what will happen to the wiki ignoring the wiki's established policies, rules and format akin to the discord taking over the fairy tail wiki.

You also mentioned that through the discord the wiki will have access to new user base that could help with the wikia and continue the hard work the users and admin do in ft wikia. That is also promising. I do visit the fairy tail reddit from time to time and i know there are people who complains about the fairy tail wiki, I also understand their complaints such as having incomplete summaries and so on.

Based on my experience whenever a new user joins the wiki to edit there is only two outcome first is that they might make an edit that does not follow the wiki's format and policies but after informing them about our format and policies as well as encouraging them to finalize their drafts on their own page to get the used to editing here, they are able to adapt and become good contributors but those kinds of people come and go since the wiki is run by unpaid volunteers afterall, the second is that a person might edit the wiki and insist in doing it their way, ignoring the wiki's format and policies or doing it in a very subjective manner especially if it concerns their favorite characters. Some even make big changes by themselves because they've decided on their own that what they are doing is what must happen without even discussing it with everyone. So in the end people might want to edit but majority of them doesnt want to follow the wiki's format and policies. Similar to the fairy tail reddit's very own wiki having its own guidelines this wiki also have things being implemented for the sake of consistency and uniformity and unfortunately a lot of people tend to ignore it resulting in edit warring and eventually being banned.

What do you think? LightningGeistLaxus Chibi 01:41, February 8, 2020 (UTC)

Sorry for the very delayed response, real life responsibilities have kept me occupied the last few days. Going back to your response, some of these reservations I understand and others I do not. In particular, the one about moderating the Discord. I think there was some misunderstanding because I wouldn't be asking you to moderate the discord, I would simply partner with it. If your staff would like to apply as moderators, they would be able to, however the discord has its own moderation. None of the reddit moderators mod the discord and vice versa. Additionally, the wikia changes that would occur to the pages in your hypothetical would simply be introduced and discussed in the server but ultimately the final decision would be made in the Wikia. The purpose of the partnership is not to make one or the other obsolete but rather help each thrive and continue to grow.

You also made mention that the wiki has a limited number of active members, but linking the discord to the wiki could bring back a sense of active community to the wiki and could bring more activity to the wiki itself, through new users and perhaps even old users returning. A lot of other wikis use discord to communicate and it could help to kickstart the wiki back into greater action. Not to mention that some wikia members are already in this server, which will help increase discussion amongst everyone and create a healthy, thriving environment.

Ultimately like I said, I want to unite discord, reddit, and the ft wikia together where the fandom could coexist and prosper and thrive with our love for Fairy Tail. Each fandom would see an increase in user base and interest because of the other 2 communities. I hope this helps clear some of your reservations. AstonishingSpiderMan (talk) 23:46, February 10, 2020 (UTC)

No problem with the delayed response, everyone have their own real life responsibilities anyway so i understand. As for moderating the discord thanks for the the clarification that we won't be moderating it unless a wiki staff would applied to it. I also like the idea that people can discuss things in the discord but the final documented discussion and voting will still be done in the wiki's talk pages. I also agree and hopeful about having the sense of an active community into the wiki that the discord could bring. Let's say we're finally on board with what you are proposing, how would it be implemented? LightningGeistLaxus Chibi 00:55, February 11, 2020 (UTC)

> Let's say we're finally on board with what you are proposing, how would it be implemented?

Well you would incorporate it to the widgets, essentially where the current chat box of the wikia is, I would of course give you the code to put and from there I would work on stuff from the discord end. Additionally you could also tweet it via the FT Wikia twitter so your audience is aware of it as well. The code itself is

<iframe src="https://discordapp.com/widget?id=176028172729450497&theme=dark" width="350" height="500" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0"></iframe>

as far as discord aspect of it I would work on roles, channels, a category to fully incorporate the wikia community, and an announcement for the entire server so they also know about this partnership. AstonishingSpiderMan (talk) 18:51, February 11, 2020 (UTC)

Ok I get what you're saying but before anything happens I believe it would be best if I post these in the fairy tail wiki talk page for the sake of formality & documentation as well as opening the discussion for everyone in the wiki to see and chime in. Maybe we can wait for a week and if everything goes well after a week then we can officially move forward with it. I believe that is acceptable correct?

Btw I would like to add that the Edens Zero wiki was created by the editors from this wiki and if i remember correctly the fairy tail editors also made the edens zero discord that is currently used in the edens zero wiki which can be seen here. So as an alternative for merging the reddit discord into this wiki we could integrate the edens zero discord used in the edens zero wiki and making it into a fairy tail and edens zero discord too.

What do you guys think? LightningGeistLaxus Chibi 15:08, February 12, 2020 (UTC)

I'm on-board with this, seems like it would be beneficial for everyone. --Neffyarious (talk) 18:44, February 12, 2020 (UTC)

In terms of the EZ discord, i checked it out and it is inactive whereas the reddit discord is very active and has a large audience, so im not sure how much it'll benefit the wiki if we merged EZwiki discord instead of the reddit one. Michelle Hyena (talk) 20:01, February 12, 2020 (UTC)

I have doubts about how active I'd be, if at all, but I have no issue with adding a Fairy Tail Wiki aspect to the Fairy Tail discord. Disabling the wiki chat seems a little necessary though.

As far as Eden's Zero goes, I don't read it or know what is going on on the wiki, so I'd hold off on making decisions without consulting the active editors there (not sure if anyone already has). King of Uncool 20:20,2/12/2020

Where in the discord do we talk? SubZeroSilver (talk) 19:28, February 18, 2020 (UTC)

I believe there will be a designated place to talk within the discord once its implemented so that the discord will be a place where people can hangout and talk about fairy tail but major changes such as voting or discussing wiki related changes will still be in the wiki talk pages for the sake of consistency, formality and documentation. LightningGeistLaxus Chibi 00:39, February 19, 2020 (UTC)

There will be 2 roles one for the admin of the staff, and one for the wikia members. As far as the channels and category there will be a special section for the wikia members where you could discuss changes to the wikia which you then bring over here, and then there will be your typical ft wikia gen chat along with the general chat for everyone. Once we get this partnership going everything will be set up accordingly. Hope this clarifies things.

Removal of the Reddit Discord

I'm writing this as a form of formality and documentation on the removal of the fairy tail reddit discord from the fairy tail wiki. Based on recent events, We are now ending our affiliation with the Fairy Tail reddit discord due to events brought up by User:Miskos3 as quoted below.

"Hello, so there has been a bit of, um, situation with the whole affiliation thing to the FT reddit and their discord. Basically, Michelle became a moderator in that discord, but ended up being constantly bullied by the rest of their staff and/or other people. Because of that, she decided to leave that server. Since as far as I'm concerned, I considered her as sort of a FT wiki representative in this whole affiliation thing, and in any kind of partnership, it looks quite bad to treat a person you're dealing with in such a manner."

When the idea of implementing the reddit discord in the fairy tail wiki was proposed by User:AstonishingSpiderMan, they've mentioned these "Ultimately like I said, I want to unite discord, reddit, and the ft wikia together where the fandom could coexist and prosper and thrive with our love for Fairy Tail."

We believe that the discord staffs and members bullying someone from the fairy tail wiki side does not fit with what was promised to us by User:AstonishingSpiderMan. This kind of treatment does not support the idea of "unity between reddit, discord and coexistence" As admins we have taken an executive decision to terminate the said partnership. LightningGeistLaxus Chibi 11:18, June 6, 2020 (UTC)

A shame that this happened, any word from AstonishingSpiderMan about this?Ophiuchus in ECS arc no bgAnimaltamer7Gate of the Snake Charmer11:29, June 6, 2020 (UTC)

None so far, but given that the people from the fairy tail wiki are already in the minority within the discord its very likely that the majority of users will stick with their fellow reddit discord members. Bullying a moderator to the point of them leaving the discord server already means that bullying is agreed upon by a lot of users and such thing were allowed to happen by the rest of the discord. Even if the bullying was denounced by User:AstonishingSpiderMan it doesn't change the fact that such thing happened, and it's very unlikely that they can force the discord members to change their ways either.

So it's really unfortunate that the situation led to this and promoting a place where such bullying happens is not what we were hoping to accomplish in the said partnership and it is definitely not the place where we would encourage the young and new fans of the series visiting the wiki to be exposed to. LightningGeistLaxus Chibi 12:07, June 6, 2020 (UTC)

Michelle is lying, I have done nothing but treat everyone with respect. She has admitted to accusing mods of hating her but subsequently admitted to them doing a fair job of moderating. She even made up with a mod she accused of hating her. Additionally, she even stepped down from the server when she was mod because of reasons I did not agree with. Ultimately, I am saddened that this has even happened. We all worked hard to make this partnership happen, I have even been working on incentivicizing users (via gift cards, or other rewards) to edit and help in the wikia but if you wish to remove the affiliation then I respect the decision. I disagree vehemently but it is not my decision to make. I am honestly tired of this from her, she has an issue she then threatens to get the affiliation to be removed, she has to have her way, and it's frustrating. I have been respectful, I have tried doing something for the entire community but I will not be held hostage by her. I worked something out with you. Uncool is still there and still comments and interacts, Davjac who she considers a close friend doesn't agree with the accusation either. The records are there, she wasn't mistreated, she didn't like that there was a change implemented so she cried foul. - Spider-Man AstonishingSpiderMan (talk) 23:57, June 6, 2020 (UTC)

I want to start off saying that in no way do users in the discord bully anyone. There is friendly banter yes, but to say we bullied someone into the point of leaving is 100% false. Next, Michelle and I are friends and in no way am I here to talk bad about her or anyone else for that matter. I am here to say yes, there were problems between people in the server, but it was never bullying. People didn't get along all that well sometimes and after some changes were made there were some issues that happened. Again, I am friends with Michelle and all the mods as well. I understand people were unhappy and were having a hard time that is literally just people not getting along all the time. Neither side was bullying the other. I am someone who tends to stay neutral which I will do now but really wanted to give another POV on this issue. I disagree with the statement that she was bullied out of the server 100% again and I do recognize there were issues between users which is bound to happen. The community and server are a good place and people are always having fun for the most part in their discussions and interactions with each other. I don't think it’s fair to punish everyone else revoking the affiliation over something where both parties were at fault for not getting along not bullying. Obviously, you probably don't care about my opinion or pov on the matter, but this is what happened. Not everyone is going to agree or get along all the time and it’s unfair to punish everyone else because of problems a few had with each other. Also, the post makes it seem like we are all bullies and rude which is not the case at all. These people are friends of mine on both sides. Taillee (talk) 01:31, June 7, 2020 (UTC)

I wasn't going to make a statement because after i left the server that was the end of it for me. but i do want to clear some things up. the issues I had with the server stemmed from a select few individuals, and in no way reflects on the community as a whole. I won't be calling out or naming said individuals because honestly there isn't a need to - i still hold dearly to me many people from the server, a majority of which are part of the staff. the term bullying is not the most appropriate word for the conflicts that had occurred as i am not someone who is without fault. Nor was it a manner of outright harassment either.

However, i was not respected there, myself as well as many other people from the server have voiced the same opinions and thoughts. I was treated in a hurtful manner by people i considered friends to me or people who i had tried to make amends with.

if there is one thing i pride myself on, it is that i am a genuine person, it may appear as though i love to create drama but it is rather that i am someone who is not easily pushed around and i will always stand up for myself when i'm being treated poorly. I think a lot of people from the wiki could agree with that, as well as people from the server. Leaving the server was not a decision i took lightly and it is one i had sat on for a while and it is one that i didn't want to make, but ultimately i felt extremely uncomfortable remaining in a place where i felt nothing but hostility.

that's all i'm going to say on the matter because i have no need to drag this on any further, the decision to remove the affiliation was not a decision made or pushed solely by myself but was discussed by the admins themselves.

RS

This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion is:
RS will be permanently disbanded; relationship sections will be permanently removed.
Please do not edit this discussion.

Hello everyone, quite the busy wiki we have lately, isn't it? Now, on to business. This forum is about deciding the fate of the RS. In the past, the relationship sections were removed and rebuilt at a later date, which resulted in the creation of the RS due to the speculative content and pages that do not have them. However, at this point in time there are over 400 characters and there is no way we can ever make relationship sections for all of them, nor give them the general upkeep they need as the series goes on. Also, we are all so busy that we just cannot manage writing for it anymore, and with us lacking qualified editors, finding help is far and few in between. So it's yay or nay on deleting all the relationship sections and disbanding the Relación Seis for good and never reviving it because we'll just rinse and repeat. Personally, I Support Support - the disbanding of the team. It lived its use and I had fun while I have been part of it for these last couple years...even though we didn't really do squat. ( .___.)

Lock Old Blogs

This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion is:
Lock code will be used on a trial basis.
Please do not edit this discussion.

So tonight, an anon revived a years dead blog by spamming 10 comments saying how Nalu is the greatest thing ever. To my knowledge, only Reli and I use Recent Changes, meaning everyone else on the wiki using Wiki Activity had to see 10 consecutive comments in the feed about Nalu. The revival of dead blogs by anons has been an issue for a while and to me and several others, its pretty annoying. That's why I am bringing up the issue of the blog lock code. For those unaware, there is a simple JS script we can install to the wiki that after a set time of no comments, a blog would lock and be unable to be commented on and displays a nice message saying the blog is old and there is no reason to edit it. This message is also customizable and there is even an option for a category blogs can be added to that make it so that blogs in that category never get locked no matter how much time has passed. You can view the script and details for it here. I suggest we implement this code. It would keep things more tidy around the wiki and the WA and RC wouldn't be spammed by anons engaging in shipping wars anymore. If a blog has been dead for years, it should stay dead. Leave your thoughts below. -- God · Pray · 04:32,4/15/2015 

I definitely support this. It's really annoying to see old blogs from 2012/2013 still being flooded with fan wars such as is Mirajane or Erza stronger or aforementioned shipping wars. Locking those blogs would really clean up the Wiki Activity so people don't have to scroll down over pointless comments to see changes that are actually relevant.
DispellingJellal chibiMage 05:30, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

3 things:

  • Not everyone is caught up to the manga/anime. For all we know, most of those anons just started reading/watching the series. For all we know, most of them have no idea that Mashima is just making scenes for them but up to now, there's no real romance yet. Or, some of them must be thinking if Mirajane and Erza had a duel and one of them prevailed. Most of them are probably coming here in search of answers to the questions they have. Most of them are probably here to voice out their own opinions about their shippings or whatever. Annoying as it may be, wouldn't it be more troublesome if an anon makes another blog regarding the same title and topic? Then what, we delete them and we get shit feedback? No. I don't want that. Yes, I am also annoyed as well, but the fact remains that not everyone has the same knowledge on the series, like ours.
  • Like what I said in the chat before, and Rai per se, that's basically taking away the freedom of users to comment and voice out whatever they want. If old blogs will make them happy, then let them be. Again, don't get me wrong; I am also annoyed as well, but I am thinking for the others. We just can't lock the blogs just because they're annoying. Please, if annoyance can be always given a solution, then I'll give a list of users that I want to be banned forever just because they annoyed me. Ban them because they clashed with me, which made me feel annoyed. Remember the LUT issue? The times where we cannot edit because the group is there, and even if we edit, our work will be reverted, no matter how good it is? This blog issue is just a little different shit but totes the same case.
  • Lastly, we already voiced this out to Rai, and what did he said? A big flat NO.

So for a tl;dr version, I say neutral. But then again, whatever will make your guys boats float, though. What I said above are just my two cents, and besides, I usually go along with what you guys will decide on. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Jakuwhore believes in democracy and it annoys enough of us that we are finally having a discussion on it. I guarantee you though that these anons that come here to spam comments on old blogs will not be willing to make accounts to make new blogs to rave about how much they love Nalu. If they want to express their opinion, the are free to on any of the recent blogs about all that crap.-- God · Pray · 05:56,4/15/2015 
I am not saying that they will make an account and make new blogs, I am just looking at the bigger picture and the possibility. Besides, I have a feeling that if this code gets implemented and one creates a blog regarding the same title/topic, either one will delete it or one will comment on the blog and say "how is this not over" yada yada stuff. This looks like, to me, at least, that we're monopolizing the place, just because we're annoyed. Again, if annoyance can take precedence, then please, ban some people for me and I might agree. Oh well, I rest my case. I am neutral.

I don't see this is an issue. If some anonymous users, or registered users for that matter, wish to comment on old blogs, then why can't they? Because it annoys a few people? If you don't want to read something that someone says, don't. It's that simple. We are a very liberal and free place, and it's one of the reasons that I adore our wiki so much. Creating too many policies, especially unneeded ones, for the sake of creating them will do nothing but harm our wiki imo. And as far as shipping "wars" go, they can happen on any blog - old and new. If you see a lot of people commenting on an old blog about their favorite ship, then do like you would do if it were a new blog - ignore it. No one is forcing you to read it. It takes two seconds to scroll down peeps. Let's not make a mountain out of a molehill. Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben06:08,4/15/2015

Shipping wars are not even a problem, but it's silly when there is a a theory about a topic X from 2013 that has already been proved/disproved in 2014 and people continue commenting. Such blogs are simply outdated and the need of commenting, regardless of how "free" this wiki is supposed to be, is zero. This is basically the same thing as closing discussions on talk pages. Miskos3 Message 06:16, April 15, 2015 (UTC)
I don't think they are the same thing whatsoever. Discussions are closed because once a decision is reached, there is no longer a need for discussion because the changes have already been implemented on the wiki. Unlike discussions, however, blogs have no bearing on any wiki policy. Their sole purpose is to express an opinion. So there's a "need" for commenting so long as someone wishes to comment. And furthermore, not all blogs are about theories. Take the Mirajane vs. Erza blog for example. That blog is as old as dirt but the subject matter is still a very valid topic of debate. And I'll reiterate once again, if you think a subject a silly, you don't have to participate. We're all adults here and should be more than capable of ignoring something. Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben06:22,4/15/2015
There are certain blogs like that that we can add to an exclusion category. But ones like Freed's runes, Natsu being E.N.D., etc. that have already been proven that result in an RWA flood (can't really ignore that, btw) due to commenting by people who are too lazy to scroll down and see 250 other comments that express their own opinion is stupid.
WrathRogue ChibiZero 06:29, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

WrathRogue ChibiZero 06:29, April 15, 2015 (UTC)
The people who HAVE the knowledge are the ones commenting, lmao. They will rush to a blog with theories about E.N.D. from when we still didn't know, like, "No, it's Natsu! u stupid?!" And yes Rai, it's the same as talk page discussions, they get locked because the original purpose is no longer present; a decision has been made. If a blog's purpose is to speculate about the identity of E.N.D., after it's been revealed, the purpose is gone, and with people continuing to act clever and still commenting the same thing over and over in spite of the blog being prehistorical, I don't see a single reason not to disable the comments. Either manually or we can make our lives easier with this script. Miskos3 Message 06:36, April 15, 2015 (UTC)
Blanket labeling is always a mistake. I highly doubt every single comment on an old blog is someone with knowledge like you are suggesting. Furthermore, as I mentioned, not every blog is about old theories. Once again, I'm citing the Erza vs. Mirajane blog as an example. Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben06:43,4/15/2015
Rai, exclusions are a thing. If you want to keep a hot-topic blog open, especially one that is more opinion-based, then we will add a category to it that will prevent locking. RWA is honestly secondary. It's about people being too lazy to scroll and topics being beaten to death after being disproven.
WrathRogue ChibiZero 06:57, April 15, 2015 (UTC)
Once again, not everyone is at the same point in the series. What's proven to one is still a mystery to another. And furthermore, no one is willing or able for that matter to go through and tag old blogs that may or may not be still discussable. They'll all get blanket locked. Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben07:01,4/15/2015

[Template fetch failed for https://community.fandom.com/wiki/Template:RI?action=render]Any blog can be kept open so long as it receives 1 comment every 30 days or however long we set it at. Any blog that we deem to be a good discussion can have an exclusionary category slapped on it. Jakuwhore, while you may be arguing about in theory, in reality 90% of these blog comments are just people trying to seem smart by telling all the people who made a theory 3 years ago that they are wrong and should feel bad about it or people spamming their ideas on everyone that disagrees with them. The old blogs are a pretty toxic place. I see no problem in locking old blogs that don't get commented on anymore to prevent this. They can always be excluded so they never lock if you really like the blog.-- God · Pray · 07:08,4/15/2015 

Please don't try and assert that any of this is more than conjecture. I've seen decent comments on old blogs and I've seen bad ones. Do I know for a fact which there are more of? No. Do you? Certainly not. And just because a blog hasn't been commented on in thirty days, doesn't mean it won't get commented on, something which has been demonstrated countless times. I don't see any point in us being overly anal about something which isn't a big deal at all. Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben07:19,4/15/2015

..: Mamerge @ 07:35, April 15, 2015 (UTC) :.. 

It isn't about "reading what people have to say", it's about the RWA being clogged with comments on years-old, disproved topics, that have already been said by well over two dozen other users/contributors. Democracy isn't the issue, and like it was said, there is an exclusion category. Chaos said that it refuses to lock comments on its blog because it wants to see peoples' reactions to the thought of FT ending for good, so we keep that one open, as an example. However, topics that should be long-since dead like the no-shit-Sherlock Natsu and Gajeel being stuck in Freed's runes being commented on over and over by different people who are just too lazy to scroll down and see the other 250 comments that say exactly what they are thinking is ridiculous. Community Central uses it, and they are probably one of the freest, most liberal wikis out there. No one complains, because when a topic is dead, it should stay dead. It's got nothing to do with people being annoyed. It's that it's essentially spam and laziness on their part. I'm actually more curious about how they find these old-as-dirt blogs anyway.

For instance, everyone on this site loves the Sorcerer Magazine, but does anyone comment on the old issues of it? No, because there is no need to. We can still be the fun, liberal, and widely loved Fairy Tail Wiki where you can say and type just about whatever the hell you want without the need for old topics to be dug out from an all but almost metaphorical grave. What happens when someone edits a closed topic on a talk page? We undo it, because there is no need to comment. Like Misk said, same principle.
WrathRogue ChibiZero 06:29, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but the RWA being clogged is nonsense to me. The RWA is meant to show recent activity and that's what it does - whether that recent activity is someone editing their userpage, commenting on a blog (new or old), or mass deleting a bunch of useless spell pages. Half the stuff on the RWA is of no importance to me. So when I'm on RWA and I see something I don't care about, I scroll down. Why? Because it takes two seconds. And as Choko mentioned, not everyone is fully caught up in the series. If they want to comment on an old blog, even one with a topic that is no longer valid, why is that your business or your problem? And as a former editor of the community wiki, I know that however free they may or may not be, they are nowhere near as liberal as us. Few wikis are. And as I mentioned to Misk above, discussions and blogs are two different things. To try to lump them together as if they have the same purpose is ridiculous. Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben06:43,4/15/2015

Oppose Oppose - I absolutely hate these shipping wars and power wars and have most probably asked on Chat quite a few times why these old Blogs aren't locked. But what Rai says is true. These blogs, unless they get a satisfactory conclusion (maybe Mira pummels Erza in a serious fight and hangs her out to dry \( ^_^)/), are eternal. Locking them is extremely high-handed. The best couple can definitely never be locked and blogs like Mira vs. Erza and Gray's future bride will only be obsolete if Mira butchers Erza or Gray ends up with somebody (or dies or kills all the females in the world \( ^_^)/). So ... no, let these blogs live. I'd mp be the first to rage about how much RWA gets clogged, but I'd also be the first to admit it's a stupid reason to rage about.

Now, if this forum had been to selectively lock blogs, then I'd support. Like Misk said, the Freed's rune things and E.N.D. Blogs have served their purpose and should now be put to rest. Some ppl who are discussing might not have reached the point where the mystery has been revealed? Let them scroll down a bit and get spoiled. The main purpose of the Blog is to get an answer, not discuss theories. And this is a wiki they've come to, they better expect to get spoiled.

So, currently, I oppose. But I might support if this was to lock blogs selectively (yeah, I read about the exclusion cat; as things stand, it'd be much easier to lock selectively than to exclude blogs selectively).

Oppose Oppose - I don't really get why this issue is such a big deal for you guys. Here are my two cents justifying my vote:

  • The wiki activity in general is annoying. No one wants to scroll through endless comments when a new chapter is released, and nobody wants to see numerous edits of the same user who just performs maintenance. Most people just want to look out for wrong edits to fix, or reply to an interesting comment they see. Out of all of those, the resurrection of old blogs is not even an issue for me.
  • There's also the issue that not many blogs are made nowadays, apart from the weekly reviews based on the new chapter/episode. Disabling comments on old blogs will only make this wiki quieter, and also possibly turn new users away from the wiki. It was one of the reasons I didn't like visiting the one piece wiki; I found the locking of the comments intimidating and made the community look more dead than it actually was.
  • Finally if those blogs are locked, many users will try to discuss the same thing in a new blog, so there's really no profit in that.

Adding a link to a character's image gallery at the top of their page?

This discussion is closed. The result of this discussion is:
Image Gallery link will be added.
Please do not edit this discussion.

I was browsing the Bleach Wiki and I noticed they do one extremely useful thing that this wiki doesn't: They add an easily accessible link to each character's image gallery at the top of their respective articles. The FT Wiki uses a similar bar atop the more important character's pages, would it be too difficult to add a link to a character's gallery to that?

Here's a link to the Bleach Wiki article for Ichigo, just to show what I mean: bleach.wikia.com/wiki/Ichigo_Kurosaki . Thoughts? I know the link is already at the bottom of the character template, but the top bar makes much more sense to me.

PS, Captcha seems to be broken on this wiki. Nothing loads, for me anyway, so I can't make actual links. 98.143.4.68 19:02, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

We already have a link to the character galleries. Its at the bottom of the infobox-- God · Pray · 19:22,3/31/2015 
Yeah I mentioned that at the end of my post... I am suggesting adding it to the bar at the top instead/too, where applicable. 98.143.4.68 20:48, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

We are not doing this; we are not going to make a tab for every single character, and we are not going to break uniformity by giving only characters with subpages other than an Image Gallery a tab. It has been fine in the infobox, and it will always be fine in the infobox. We may have derived a lot of content from Bleach Wiki, but I will always maintain that tabs are hideous, no matter how we stylize them, and oh so many people here will agree with me (also 99% sure this was discussed a long ass time ago).
WrathRogue ChibiZero 20:51, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

If everyone thinks tabs are so awful, why have them at all? It's not like there aren't other solutions. 98.143.4.68 22:06, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

lol the bleach wiki is a horrendous looking wiki. I mean just look at Ichigo's page. The background is so low quality and looks fucking ugly with the transparent content background they use. I have no fucking idea why they stopped using the series' logo as the wiki wordmark and are instead using... that. They have all these clashing reds and blue everywhere. The character quote has color that doesn't match anything. The tabber makes me want to rip my eyes off with the blues and red and the fucking appearance in other media in another line is just shit. The TOC's bubble for "Contents" is so damn tight it looks bad and it'd be better if they got rid of it. The character infobox has squares and circles for boxes. Really. Either make them all squares or all boxes but having them both is a tragedy. The Former Powers and Abilities section has the collapse boxes with titles that are illegible. And everything is a pain in the ass to read with that background. Please, no one should ever say we should do anything like the Bleach Wiki design-wise. Bickslow Doll Bickslow Doll3Bickslow Doll 2 21:14, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

Well jeez, it's not like I'm suggesting you copy the style of that wiki. Personally I find it hard to navigate the Bleach wiki in comparison to this wiki. Adding an extra link to the tabs at the top wont make it look any worse than what's already there, and IMO tabs are much more useful when they list all subpages for a character. 98.143.4.68 22:06, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
The thing is, not all character pages have those tabs, only those whose articles got divided into several sub-pages due to their size. Or are you suggesting to add it only to already existing tabs? Miskos3 Message 22:17, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
I would still oppose this. It isn't necessary. It's still fine in the infobox where it always has been. This person is just being nitpicky, because even though they admitted we are easy to navigate, it apparently could be easier for him/her.
WrathRogue ChibiZero 22:32, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
Passive aggressive much? :| I'm not being nitpicky. I saying it makes much more sense for the gallery to be added to the tabs for the characters who have tabs, after all the tabs list every other sub page for each character. This would make the wiki more consistent and make it easier for others to find the gallery. 98.143.4.68 22:48, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
That is exactly what I am suggesting. No need to go around adding tabs to character pages that don't already have them, especially when a lot of characters don't even have enough content to require tabs. 98.143.4.68 22:48, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
I still don't agree with this. I think the image galleries are fine where they are. It isn't consistent. Characters who have tabs have tabs because the content in their main articles was too large and the pages were loading extremely slowly. The images galleries were not part of the content that was separated; they were separated to begin with. Again, it is not consistent because then characters wouldn't have image gallery links in the same places.
WrathRogue ChibiZero 22:51, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
But then you have a single subpage for the characters with tabs that isn't listed with their other subpages in the tabs. It wouldn't be necessary to remove the current link to the gallery on these pages since there are characters without tabs at all, simply to add it to the tabs as well. And by that logic, the galleries were the first thing to be separated from the main article because of slow load times as they were never included in the main pages for this reason. I'm failing to see how adding the gallery to the tabs doesn't improve consistency. 98.143.4.68 23:01, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
No, the galleries were never part of the articles. They have always been a separate entity. The tabs are for links information content only. Adding a link to the image galleries up top is stupid.

The link on the infobox is fine. When I was on Bleach wiki, I looked at FT wiki and thought that was a much better place to put it. Tabs are ugly, no reason to have more tabs.-- God · Pray · 22:57,3/31/2015 

Also, to answer your earlier question Mr./Miss Contributor, no one wanted to split the articles into tabs. We had no choice. At that point the series was over 350 chapters long and the articles for the main 5 were tens of thousands of bytes in size (arguably, some other characters need to be split like them, but w/e), so we split the main page, the synopsis-history, the appearances in other media, and the relationships into four separate pages to make loading the pages easier. Seriously, we hate tabs. Every single one of us. It's like one of our other admins said in the forum to make them: Tabs are like abortions, you either love them or you hate them; there's no in between. However, we did it to make the wiki better.
WrathRogue ChibiZero 23:02, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

Seriouly off topic here and I am by no means advocating this, but since everyone hates tabs, wouldn't a better option have been a reduction in content? Wikipedia for example doesn't allow articles as highly detailed as the ones you have here. Then there's the images. I just counted 175 on Natsu's synopsis page, which really is far too many. And GIFs are nice, but they tend to slow load times too much to be practical.98.143.4.68 23:28, March 31, 2015 (UTC)
lol not everyone hates tabs, only them. The community decided a while ago to do tabs for certain pages cuz they became necessary, but putting tabs for every character page to link to the gallery is unneeded and evidently unwanted. Bickslow Doll Bickslow Doll3Bickslow Doll 2 00:12, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

Wow guys, no need to pound the poor man just because he uttered the word "tabs" >__>

Hiya anon~ As you can see, the people on our Wiki, uhhh, don't like tabs ^__^" Some of us get very uptight about uniformity as well, so the idea of adding extra tabs to some pages and then not to others sends us into a flurry.

I guess my main question for you is why you would like a tab link to the image galleries? Do you find the current link at the bottom of the infobox to be too small? Or is it hard to see on your computer? Or does is not load sometimes? Aka, is there something wrong with what we currently have? It's just we have had the link there since the beginning of time and nobody has brought it up like this. If there is an actual problem with it that we can fix, then we'd be glad to help. However, if it is just the case that you like tabs, I'm afraid we will likely be of little help. In which case you should just make an account called "TabMaster" or the like and hang out in blogs annoying people with the word tab :P

☆°・*CarrotSays...*・°☆ 02:52, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

The truth is, to me it just seems like such an obscure place for it to be. All the way at the end of the infobox in a grey box, it looks like that spot is more like a padded footer for the info box at first glance. I've been visiting this wiki semi-regularly for the last year or so and it was only recently that I noticed the link was even there. Then today I saw the tab for the gallery on the Bleach Wiki and thought it made so much more sense for it to be there than how the FT Wiki is doing it now. So I decided to make the suggestion. Who knew it'd turn out to be such a big issue for some people? lol If no one wants to add the gallery to the tabs for the pages that have tabs, how about moving it to just below the character portrait so that it is more prominent? Having the link below the character portrait makes sense, but this way you'd have to edit all character profiles... 98.143.4.68 03:37, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

Okay, my earlier behavior was the result of a lot of pressure outside of the computer screen, so for being rude to you I formally apologize. I just have to point out that it's at the bottom of the info boxes because every portion of the info box is organized so that certain criteria are kept together. It wouldn't fit anywhere other than the bottom, because directly below the portrait is to be the character's name, that way it is clearly identifiable. You are the first one to ever bring this up, but I'm pretty sure that we'll never ever (I mean the community as a whole) agree on a place to move the image gallery link, so it's best if we just leave it as is. Maybe make it not gray or something though...something more stand-outish. Though I can't imagine what color we could make it. Gray is neutral and goes with every color we have. :/
WrathRogue ChibiZero 03:54, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm also wondering if there is a way to make it more stand-out-ish. Tbh, I have always found it small, but I've been here for ages, so I just got used to it. Grey is neutral, but perhaps making it a bit bigger? Or on two lines with slightly larger text? I dunno, I'm no coder and tbh I'd only agree to the change if others thought it was necessary too. This seems more like an issue to pose to new editors/users though as, like I said, all of us older users probably have no issues because we're so used to the location :/ No idea.
☆°・*CarrotSays...*・°☆ 04:10, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
I think what I see wrong with making it bigger is that the font size is consistent with the overall size of the font of the whole infobox, and making it two lines, but keeping it the same font size in respect to that, would make it look rather queer. Way back when I was a wee anon a few years ago, I noticed it because the page background is white and the box is gray, and if you're actually reading the whole page for what it's worth, you'll notice it too. But I guess if you're giving it a glance over you probably will just skim right over it. This is just one of those things where if it had to change, I guess I'd be willing to help brainstorm some ideas, but I'd just prefer it rather not. ( ._.)
WrathRogue ChibiZero 04:16, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
Well, personally, I prefer things the way they are, but we just cannot ignore him, can't we? Whatever his reasons are, he's probably inconvenienced with the location of our image galleries. Dragons of Design Brainstorming is the way to go; who knows, we might come up with a new design that would be extremely stylish and of course, friendly to everyone.

I wouldn't say that we need to redesign every single infobox because one person finds it...I wouldn't say "inconvenient" because they have admitted that it is quite easy to navigate. They just found it out of place due to their being tabs on character pages that have tabs that do not link to this sub-page. In years and years of doing it this way no one has found it really out of place... If you're actually looking at the page you're bound to find it; it's the only gray box amidst, generally, a box of vibrant color. If more people found it bothersome like he did then yeah, sure, but we are all here saying that it's fine, so let's not bother with what isn't broken. :/
WrathRogue ChibiZero 04:24, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
Agreed. I think right now it's going to be a "if anyone has a good idea, then let's check it out, otherwise, sorry but things stay the same" kinda situation. That is, unless anyone reading this has been wanting to agree that the current link is bad and hasn't, cause they'd better step forward now. ☆°・*CarrotSays...*・°☆ 04:25, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

I don't have any ideas as to how to improve it right now, but I do think we should brainstorm some. I've always found our Image Gallery link very obscure, and it's always bothered me.

And considering how much work is put into the Image Galleries, I think we should put some effort into getting people to know we have them. >_> Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben05:02,4/1/2015

So prioritize it for the Dragons of Deadness to do. This involves making Reli perform necromancy and starting sometime within the next few weeks. =) But if I had any ideas...I guess you could try making the infoboxes more vibrant, and then making the image gallery link equally as vibrant, but a darker shade. Not trying to throw gradients down everyone's throats (I know now many people like them, which is funny because on just about most of the things DOD re-codes we use gradients), but there are ways in which you can use gradients to, obviously, make the obscure not and make the non-obscure even more beautiful.

Well, imo redesigning infoboxes is a discussion for another day. For now, I Support Support - adding image gallery links to the existing navigation tabs. Miskos3 Message 05:42, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose - Unlike some others here I don't hate tabs, actually I quite like them, but only in certain limits. Yes they are useful, but if there are too many they just make things more confusing, so I'm for keeping them at a minimum. Adding a tab for the image gallery (or a link in a "tab-spot") is unnecessary in my opinion, so I'm against it. Besides making something look like a tab even though it's really a link isn't exactly elegant either. If the majority thinks that a link from each tab is a good idea, I suggest making it an actual link at or near the top of the pages, but certainly not this suggested "semi-tab". NoNickNeeded (talk) 06:29, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

I don't understand what you mean by semi-tab. The Image galleries are subpages of character pages like every other tab. So adding a tab for the Image Gallery wouldn't be any different from anything we're already doing. Furthermore, I don't get what you mean by "adding a link in a tab-spot." I don't even know what that is, and I don't recall anyone proposing anything like that. :/ Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben13:05,4/1/2015
"Tab-spot" is just what I called the place where a new tab would be added into the bar. If we take Natsu's page as an example, that currently has the three tabs "Overview", "Synopsis" and "Other Media" and the "new tab-spot" would just be the currently free spot to their right. And the reason why I call it a semi-tab is because I don't consider a link to the gallery a true tab. A true tab for me is like the current ones, where the tab-bar stays visible. But the current links to the gallery don't do that, so it'd only be a semi-tab, unless this tab-bar would be integrated into the gallery itself too. But then it'd be odd for people who got to the gallery via the info-box link. NoNickNeeded (talk) 14:11, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

In my opinion, the link is fine the way it is. Only thing I'd suggest is to increase the font so it makes it more noticeable. After all, looking for something never hurts anybody, right? :D
DispellingJellal chibiMage 07:15, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

I disagree. The problem isn't people who know the Image Galleries can't find them, it's that there are probably a lot of people who don't know about them because our link is so obscure. And changing the font size is not the solution imo. Having un-inform font size in the infobox would look terrible. Iam...    JakuhōRaikōben13:05,4/1/2015

I'm against it. Though it wouldn't matter much in the 5 characters with tabs already since it would just be adding another one, it would be bad for every other character having only Overview and Gallery as tabs. In my opinion they look pretty good where they are. It looks neat and clean yet not too tight. It doesn't interrupt the flow of the page and looks like it just "fits" there quite well. Bickslow Doll Bickslow Doll3Bickslow Doll 2 13:58, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

Been awhile since we've had a discussion like this. ( .___.) Anyway yes, like Reli said, adding a tab to existing tabs is okay, but I'll be damned if we make a tab for just overview and image gallery. In all the years they've existed no one has ever complained, so aside from the characters who were split (we should still keep the image gallery link at the bottom of the infoboxes too, but if we don't, w/e), we shouldn't really bother with trying to change anything. It's very nice where it is.

All the anon is suggesting - and what I am supporting - is to add the image gallery link to existing tabs, i.e. to split character articles like Natsu, Lucy, etc. The characters without tabs won't get touched. So, can we get this out of the way before trying to be hurr hurr and redesigning the infoboxes? Miskos3 Message 18:37, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

Exactly this. To be clear, I was never suggesting tabs be added to pages that don't already have them. Just that pages with already existing tabs have a link to the galleries added to them. I never wanted a massive redesign of the wiki, especially since tabs are unnecessary for the majority of characters that exist within the FT universe.98.143.4.68 19:07, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

  2. Neutral Neutral - If it was to all characters I would oppose, but if its only to characters with tabs already then I don't really care. Bickslow Doll Bickslow Doll3Bickslow Doll 2 20:24, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
  3. Neutral Neutral - Same as Reli. So, how many characters are there that has a tab? *counts* 5? 6? Idk, CBA to look. Nevetheless, 5/6/whatever tabs; how about for other characters? Would that mean, those tabbed pages would get all the changes? The how about for the hundred plus characters? We'd make a tab for them as well? I thought that we'd brainstorm some ideas first on how to make the gallery link in the info box be noticeable, since it is very dull, as mentioned by some. Correct me if I am wrong since the post is tl;dr, but, are we going to make the changes alone for tabbed pages? If yes, I'll lean towards oppose. Either we design them all or don't design them at all, and focus on the info boxes instead. It doesn't sit well with me. After all, those tabs existed because their pages had gotten too big; too big that we have to separate them. Otherwise.. neutral.

  4. Neutral Neutral - Okay, so Misky had given me a very short but detailed explanation about this, and I am still neutral about it. Quote and unquote in chat, it is not difficult to go back to the main page of the article and click the link. Like, if I can do countless clicks in my games, then why not for an article that would only take 2-3 clicks for me to reach the IG link. Though, borrowing Carry's statement, maybe I am so used to this format for 2 years; NO ONE, NOT UNTIL NOW had brought it up, that I didn't even care for such trivial detail. But w/e floats all of your boats though. If this change would make the experience a lot better then go for it, but honestly, I am fine the way it is.

  5. Neutral Neutral - I'd just suggest that the image gallery links be added to the tabs only on the character pages where it's not present: Synopsis and Other Appearances only. Leave the main page alone (and try to make the link at the bottom of the infobox more noticable if required). But, eh, w/e. --Sane Lunatic (talk) 15:33, April 2, 2015 (UTC)
  6. Neutral Neutral - I don't think this would be necessary for all of the characters, and I agree with Choko, its just a few clicks to get back to the main article Ophiuchus in ECS arc no bgAnimaltamer7Gate of the Snake Charmer04:54, April 3, 2015 (UTC)

Oppose

  1. Oppose Oppose - I don't mind there being a link, but for reasons I stated above I'd prefer it not to be a tab. NoNickNeeded (talk) 20:34, April 1, 2015 (UTC)

New Gallery Section

Section will be implemented.
Please do not edit this discussion.

Recently I've been giving a look at our Image Galleries, and noted some kind of "rule" on them, with the appearance images (ie Profile Pics, Full Body Pics, Mugshots, etc) put in the top of the gallery. This "rule", however, isn't followed in every Image Galleries, but as it isn't official, nothing is done. From my view, to put this kind of images among normal images make the gallery looks messy. So I thought it would look cooler and more pleasant to the eyes if we add a section on the Image Galleries under the "Manga" and "Anime" headers. There, we would put:

  • The current profile picture(s) of the character (that means; Mugshots of the character not being used would be taken off of the Gallery)
  • A full-body picture of the character.
  • Same for X791 and young age looks.
  • Pictures of the character with different relevant looks.
  • For main characters, "relevant" means an outfit it has used during an Arc (for an example, Lucy's and Natsu's celestial clothes during the Oración Seis Arc).

The Appearance-Manga section would work somewhat differently:

  • Same picture criteria from above.
  • If a different outfit for a character has been featured in manga, we use it instead of the B&W version. (Ex: We'd use this instead of File:Lucy in Bunny suit01.jpg)
  • Possibly sketches, if released.

I've made a prototype of how these sections would look here. Not like that's the final version thought.

Please note that these are just some criteria I've thought about. Feel free to discuss or oppose to them if you want. Herme 00:40,12/6/2012

Putting each gallery as a job worthing 1.000Jewel in the IG should solve this problem (that is, if Ish approves...) Herme 00:45,12/6/2012

Just brainstorming. For mains it would be higher and for minors it would be lower, of course.
