ADTRWiki

ADTRWIKI.com is an open-source collaborative effort between all members of SA who have maybe at some point in the past enjoyed a show about anime and think that other people might enjoy it too. If someone's looking for a good show and don't perhaps know exactly what they're looking for, this is the place to browse. It's a repository of the good shows we've watched over the years and has opinions, links where you can find more information, and opinions of SA members of the shows they've watched.


Notes
  • You must be approved to do basically anything that isn't looking at pages. Post in this thread so Nate RFB or I can approve you and you can start making and editing.
  • This isn't meant to be a comprehensible encyclopedia of anime. We want writeups and (most importantly) opinions on series that people have enjoyed and/or think others would enjoy, not just a volumous recording of all the bad shows we've subjected ourselves to over the years.
  • No porn.
  • It isn't as hard as it looks. There is an editing guideline linked on the front page of the wiki that details all the different formatting, none of it is any more complex than using the tags here. Take a shot at it!
  • Joke/parody pages. Unless they're really funny.
  • Don't just make stub pages. If you don't like a series enough to make a full page on it, opinion and all, you probably shouldn't.
  • If the wiki goes down then one of us is just loving with code. Pay no attention to the goon behind the curtain, it'll be back up shortly.

I can't find you when I search for "XboxPants" (EDIT: Or I could look at the user list... )

I made a Haibane Renmei entry as a quick test, and noticed:

1. "Licensed" is spelled wrong in the info box.
2. We should add a field for "Format," stating whether the entry is an Anime(TV/OVA/Movie) or Manga.
3. Is current status referring to whether the show is licensed, or whether it's finished?
4. Maybe, for manga, we should change the "Number of Episodes" to "Number of Episodes/Volumes:" That way either format has an option. "Episode Length" would just be set to "N/A" for Manga.
5. Eventually we should set up an index that shows all of the entries entered thus far.

All good points, changes have been made. I also removed the 'Anime Name' from the template since it was entirely redundant as page names display it anyway.

Is there any clean way to list multiple opening/ending songs? I'm attempting a Honey & Clover entry which has 5 songs total and it looks like hell. Even worse, think of a series like Bleach that has upwards of a dozen or more. Maybe Op/Eds should be in the body instead of the info box.

Oh God I never thought of that. Good idea, implemented.

VVV You've got a point there. I think we should keep episode length/# of episodes and the company/director that made them at least because that gives a general idea of how long the series is and the creators because everyone likes that kind of thing. Should we keep those four and get rid of the others?

To be honest, I wonder if we even need to have them listed. Afterall, if you're interested in pieces of info like that then ANN would be a better source probably. The purpose of the wiki is more to just get a show's name out there as a recommendation, rather than provide on random info bits into the show. I wonder if, in that sense, we need list stuff like "Director" since that too may have multiple entries.

EDIT: Eh, I like having the Director listed I guess because that way we can also have an "Artist" for manga.

Maybe this can be a case by case basis - when there's a director who's pretty much doing the whole show, like Satoshi Kon or Miyazaki, then you would list a director, but if it's Naruto or something where there's a random director for every episode, that's not very important, and you don't list any director information.

Also, "format" doesn't need to say "anime/manga" on the final page, that's redundant; same thing for "status".

The thing about the Template:Infobox page is, you can have dozens of lines in the template page, and then only use the ones you think are neccessary in the series page. Any you choose not to add info for won't be shown.

Edit: no, it appears I'm dead wrong. You can add new fields to the infobox template but you can't not show ones currently there. Oh well.

edit: Example, if you wanted to add the writer for your show, you'd just add
code:
|- 
! Writer
| {{{writer|}}}
|-
To the Template:Infobox page, and then
code:
writer = Some Guy|
To the series page infobox, and it would show up. But since nobody else added that to their page, it wouldn't for them. At this point it's really a question of how much info the writer of the page wants to include. On one hand you're right and this isn't ANN filled with trivia, but on the other there's no harm in adding it.
I added "# of Episodes" to the Template to see if I could try to alternate between "Episodes/Volumes" and "Episodes," but while it added the field that I wanted it didn't remove the original "Episodes/Volumes" from the page.

At least this means we can have a degree of customization for each entry, if the entry maker is willing to add the necessary stuff to the Infobox.

Nate, take a look at the page. If you don't have a problem with it shall we use that as the standard template so we can stop messing around with layouts? Basically eveything that isn't the short synopsis (i.e. music, character bios, website links etc) can go into sub-headings under Main Description as the writer feels the need to add them, and the infobox kept to the bare minimum of info?

Sounds good to me. I changed "If You Like This..." to "If You Like This, You Might Like..." though just for clarity.

Everyone who has registered thus far is approved. You guys can start making entires, using the Haibane page as a template. Unless there are any comments/suggestions over the look for it. Otherwise, just search for whatever page you want to make, and when it doesn't find it click on "Create page."

Next step is finding a way to index the entries.

Well, I didn't know anything about creating/editing wiki pages until this morning, and now that the template seems more or less hammered out I think it'll be a lot easier. It's a work in progress, so any help can be directed right in the thread here.

I've now created my first entry. One suggestion I have to make however is that we add a few links at the bottom of each article in order to make it easier for someone that's interested in a series to look up more information about it.

How do we want to categorize articles? I'm guessing the best method would be by genre since that's what most people are going to care about, but maybe also by director and stuff might be a good idea.

Interesting. If you type in "Yu-Gi-Oh" it will take you to the correct page. If you type in "yu gi oh" it returns nothing. How hard is it to add closest matches to the search results? Also, do we have redirects working? We can't even agree on an official thread title for Haruhi...

Last thing: does anyone think it would be a good idea to have a players/codec page? It might be an easy way to keep everyone current.

Genres and formats are probably the two best ways. Maybe Pierson can elaborate on how that'll work though. Right now searching goes just for revelancy, but hopefully it can be made so that you can run a search that grabs every entry with "Drama" as a Genre, or every Manga entry that's been published thus far. Eventually maybe we'll find a way to sort the results by highest votes, and so on.

As in, the best stuff to use to watch fansubs? I think it might be a bit unnecessary, but it can't hurt either.
