  • I'm going to be getting around to finally fleshing out the wiki's new terms and policies for page layout and whatnot, so I wanted to get your opinion on this one last time.

    Which would you prefer going forward regarding the Appearance section of Chapter and Episode pages? The current "In order of appearance" method, which allows readers/watchers to know which characters appear how late into the chapter? OR the "In order of significance" method, which allows readers/watchers to know which characters appear based on their relevance to the chapter/episode?

    With the new significance method, all major characters (like Guts, Griffith and whatnot) would be at the top, allowing people to know which major characters are in that chapter right away with minor characters (like Pepe for example) being towards the bottom. This method is how we do it over on the JoJo Wiki and it looks very nice, so I wanted you to think it over before we change anything. If it is changed to this, it won't take long at all to update everything, so if that sways your decision, just letting you know now.

    • The changes seem okay. The only thing that bothers me is that maybe we're becoming too similar to the jojo wiki? I would prefer input from other the admins before reaching a decision.

  • How do you make pages on Berserk wiki?

  • Involving the characters of Theuene, Iony, Pick, Pack, Peck and Pock, since they are all stubs, do you want to move them into the Minor Characters section until more info is obtained involving them?

    Deleted pages can always be restored after all.

    • We could make Puck's brothers their own separate page like the Mozgus' Disciples page, since they are all closely related. (and have it categorised as a group page, since they are a group). The minor characters page may be a preferable location, though.

  • Can you read the vanguard message on my wall and give your opinion on it? I personally don't want them messing around with our templates.

  • Should we keep the current dark red font color for clickable links? I ask this because bright red is used to denote broken links and could confuse a few newer editors.

    I was considering maybe a golden yellow, dark purple or orenge-ish brown color as alternatives. Do you have any suggestions? Black won't do, as it's too similar to normal text.

      I really would like to help out, truly, but I'm simply not democratic enough to tolerate this disgusting choice of design that you all seem to be so fond of.

      I don't know. I don't really think you ever intended to help out, regardless of the choices made. At least, that's the impression I get, though I could be wrong. Wikis can never be "lost causes" because they can always be edited. Even the shittiest website can be turned into a more quality product provided somebody spends enough time and effort to make it so. All of the problems you listed can be fixed. Why can they not be? Why is it a lost cause? There's pessimism and then there's writing something off without even trying. At the current rate we're going now, I don't see why in, say, three or four years we can't have something decent worthy of Berserk. I'm certainly not satisfied the way things are now, but that doesn't mean I won't be in the future. If people had the mentality seen in your comment about everything then nothing would ever get finished or improved.

      If you don't like dark purple then why not suggest a different colour? That's the topic of this thread, after all. None of the answers in here are final. I chose dark purple because that seemed the best out of the colours Ecks listed, but i'm open to change my answer if somebody proposes a colour I would prefer. Admittedly, I have a pretty small imagination myself, so i'm not very good at coming up with alternatives of my own. I can write articles and post pictures, but I've already said that i'm not good when it comes to web design. Feel free to contribute not directly to the wikia itself, but to these discussions, which means you'll indirectly contribute anyhow. What colour do YOU want to see? Maybe i'll agree with you. But comments like yours just now in this thread don't really help anybody. Pointing out that the wiki is kinda shitty right now doesn't solve anything. It doesn't tell us anything we don't already know and it doesn't achieve anything other than demoralising new people like me who are excited about changing things up and making the wikia better. It doesn't contribute to the discussion we should be having on the thread, either.

      If purple is disgusting, then what do you think would be better? That's all that is asked in this thread. Oh! I just edited to make sure that I don't come across as aggressive or anything. I don't have any problem with you Diecut. I just disagree with you comment.

    • We'll use dark purple for now, but please feel free to keep the thread going until we agree on it finally. Please feel free to also suggest a color you'd prefer everyone, you don't have to choose something I picked.

  • Hey Betsy, please could you delete the Male Characters and Female Characters categories? We already have the Male and Female categories, so they're redundant. I've moved all the characters from Female Characters (8 of them) to Female and from Male Characters (12) to Male. The categories themselves just need to be removed and I think only an administator can do that. (Forgive me if i'm wrong.)

  • Just so you know, I updated the infobox to be more in-depth and can now include additonal info, such as the original issue the Chpater debuted in under Young Animal or Jet Comics. It can also display what anime episode adapted the chapter.

    • NO, no, no. Just no. WTF did you do. You only removed stuff were is the previous were are the japanese titles, arc etc. Also wtf did you do to the navigation just no.

    • Calm down, I didn't "remove" anything. The templates just need to be updated with the new ones on each page. A normal user can do it or you can program a bot to do it.
