But if you want to complain about the recent mass deletion of bad filename, that's because they're around for far too long and set a bad examples against our Image Policy. I've to ban another person because they don't give a damn despite multiple warning. It's good to see that you do better lately.
Hey Kuruni! I'm Jamie from FANDOM's Community Development team! Not sure if we never asked you if you are interested in turning on the Discussions feature for this community, and migrating the Threaded Forums across as well.
In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. Discussions also links with our FANDOM Apps, which this community has and it allows app users to easily take part in Discussions as well. You can read more about Discussions here.
For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.
If you have some concerns, Discussions, and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions and Forums will be sunsetted as a feature, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.
Feel free to have an open discussion with your community about this, and I'm available for any questions you might have. Have a good one!
We'd love to get the discussions ball rolling, so why don't we say that if I've not heard back from you by the end of the month (Jan 31) I'll go ahead and enable discussions. I'll leave forums as they are.
I don't mean to be a bother, but the image you uploaded for Donahue's Gelgoog Ground Type isn't exactly... accurate to any other source I'm aware of. It lacks the antenna, emblems, and white stripes the custom painted MS is known for.
I mean, there are eight other pictures of Vische Donahue's Gelgoog on the page that contradict the new profile image you posted!
I'll upload the original page scan ASAP. But right now my internet connection is pretty crappy at uploading stuff to Wikia (most of other site are fine, just a little slow, what the hell is wrong with it?).
(edit) There it is. Now please send any complain to Futabasha or Sunrise, I merely crop out the image.
I thought I had a good version of the "Missing Link" artwork/model, but it turns out to just be the same one in the image gallery with the text cropped. (So part of the leg is faded.) Not sure if thats acceptable.
I also have some pictures of the P-Bandai official model that have yet to be uploaded to the page. I'm not sure if its appropriate to use a model as the official profile pic though.
So instead of actually finding a better image by yourself, you make a thread to make me sound like a petty guy?
Known what, fuck this. Checking your contribution make it clear that you're all talk and no action. Unless you start contributing any actual content to this wiki, I consider it's my right to ignore your crap.
I actually didn't get angry until yesterday. I check your contribution to see how far you're at talking to other mod about posting "better image". Then I see everything, you don't talk to other mod, you make a thread to make me sound like petty guy, you even revert the image, clearly you're just mess with me. And all of your activity on this wiki is chit-chat to boost (not fault by itself).
Really, I'll be more happy and change my opinion if you're going to prove that you can make meaningful contribution, but it look like that won't happen.
Please, calm down and let me explain the best I can.
I'm a very insecure person. I've been watching the wiki for a very long time- and have always wanted to contribute... but as the origin of the series is in Japan and I live in the US, I feel like there's not much I can do. People upload official art before I can get to it, and as a person who only reads/writes English there's not much I can do to translate profiles and new information.
Since my initial suggestion in the first post of this conversation I've been going through the thousands of images on my computer trying to find a picture of Donahue's Gelgoog thats the most appropriate. I've recently moved my files around, so it was difficult for me too sort through my images.
Eventually I gave up and went to see if I could find a better image online from official sources. It was also pretty unfruitful; the best I could get were either the official P-Bandai HGUC promo images and the "Missing Link" image- which has part of the leg armor obscured. I felt neither were appropriate.
Because of this (and realizing the poor quality of the image that had been uploaded before you posted your picture of Visch's new Gelgoog) I reverted it back to your image since it WAS significantly higher quality.
You were quite brash when I made my initial suggestion- and I was unsure what to do next. I decided to make that post on the board. Now, pardon me here, but if you READ my post, it has very little to do with you. I did a brief recap of the situation and asked if"I" ' had behaved badly'''''- and if I should continue doing anything on the site.
Shortly afterwards you posted that I had no idea what you were going through, and I realized you were probably going through something. I felt stupid for making the forum post, so I removed it. I hoped that was the end of it.
Then you looked at my contributions and got angry again. I was so ashamed of myself. You were right but I felt helpless. I couldn't find a replacement image. While I did remove that post, the fact is I still wrote it. I suffer from severe depression- and as I've pointed out many times, I have nothing but respect for you... and for me to make you that angry broke me.
I swear to high heaven I'm not trying to troll you. I have nothing but respect for you. In fact while my contributions on this wiki are few, I have made lots of contributions on other wikis- for a VERY long time I was extremely active on WoWwiki (before I moved to Wowpedia) and if you click my contributions there, I've made over a thousand including images, lore, NPC information and quests..
So I didn't just create this profile just to troll you. I'm very, very sorry that you feel this way. Please, just understand I went in this with the best intentions... even though I've screwed everything up.
So last week User:HalfMoonFenrir created the Space Attack Force
article, which I've since expanded with information sourced from the archived GundamOfficial site. Got me thinking we need to add more pages for the various sub-factions and how this will work with listing mecha operated by and characters affiliated with a specific faction. So my idea is, only include the smallest faction in their operator (if mecha) or affiliation (if character) parameter, unless there's a good in-story reason why not (promotion, dissolution of the faction etc.) If all subfactions of faction A use a particular suit (including variants), only then will said suit be listed under faction A.
I've added a lot of trivia notations to the various pages detailing how various units, characters, organizations, and series specific to Gundam are depicted in the above mentioned game series. If possible, I would like my contributions to be examined to make sure I have adhered to the manual of style, which I have done my best to do, but I'd appreciate another opinion. I've also tried to summarize some things as concisely as possible (not an easy task for some of the SRW trivia), would like to make sure my contributions have been appropriate.
