Hi, welcome to Aselia! Thanks for your edit to the User:水のウォーリー page.
Your recent contributionsEdit
I'm just posting to let you know of this before it gets out of hand in the future. Images that are added to mystic arte pages should -always- be the arte in action, and -not- the cut-in. The cut-in images belong on the pages devoted to each individual character, typically in the gallery section using our custom gallery system, since the default gallery system was once perfectly fine but became terrible with Wikia's interference. The same applies to all attacks - it should be a single frame of the arte as it is being performed, and the arte banner display is optional and unnecessary.
The cut-in images that you added to these mystic arte pages won't be removed right away, but I very highly suggest moving those images to the appropriate pages and replacing their current placeholders with the artes themselves. And most importantly, please take care to cite the source(s) of the images. Please be aware that we do not accept images that have been obtained randomly off of the web. All images must come from a verified source, most suitably an official website or one of our affiliates such as Abyssal Chronicles. Images from blogs or screenshots of Youtube videos are not allowed. Any uncited images will be sweeped away and deleted whenever I feel like taking the effort to do so, which means these images might stay whether or not you do provide your image sources, at least for a while, but it will happen at some point.
Re: Arte PagesEdit
Replying to your comment on Lig0schndr talk page, adding new arte pages are not against the rules of this wiki, it's just not our priority to create them at this moment. Our priorities are to expand existing stub pages we have right now, including character, location, and term pages. I won't go into an all out explanation, because I hate writing multiple paragraphs, just check here for a full list of our priorities. --Zolo Miphares (talk) 08:39, November 27, 2011 (UTC)
I see. So at this point of time, it's not a major priority. But once in a blue moon you can right? As long as you don't leave the page blank like Lig0schndr said.
So like, when I added a phrase at the end of Rita's Ancient Catastrophe, is that the type of priority we have? Just editing EXISTING pages, am I on the right track?
- By EXISTING pages, I am always and forever referring to stub pages with little to no content on them in their current state. Examples abound on this wiki; there is absolutely zero need to make more of them. With all honesty, I would rather see the individual arte pages never touched at all until we get those stub pages eliminated once and for all, and at our current rate, we will finally achieve that maybe a few months before the next decade is set to begin. That is a conservative estimate too. As I find myself always repeating, as much as I hate it, I would rather have red links for missing pages than new articles with so little content that they may as well have stayed as red links. It keeps the wiki free of clutter, especially during these times when I am becoming increasingly more preoccupied to fulfill my apparent janitor duties on this wiki [including all analogies related to such duties]. If you can manage to make pages that are already complete in their own right, then that's fine, and I have no issue against it if you can make those pages correctly. But past experience shows that it is silly to expect "new" or "infrequent" users to achieve any standard of quality that I start quantifying everything in a bad way.
- In any case, I apologize for being insulting in my comments when I edit pages, but you really do have to realize that I have always acted like that and will continue to do so when the same errors are repeated by not just you, but several dozens of others over the course of my tenure here. And it's not like you made an effort to realize what it is I am talking about when I say that diacritics are forbidden here. What are diacritics? These are the line things that you have been adding to extended vowels, known as macrons. Diacritics are a blanket term for macrons, accents, and other markings that modify the modern English implementation of the Roman alphabet. Seeing how you have continued to use diacritics on every page that you have created in spite of others going into those pages to fix the romanizations to fit our policies, it really gets tiresome to have to explain it so that you would understand why things are the way they are, to the point that I would rather not bother.
- As for the descriptions of each of the artes on the pages that you have created, I only just browsed through them, but it looks like I will have to rewrite all of them. We will not describe the specific button presses for the artes to activate them - that information belongs on the arte list pages themselves, alongside other statistical data related to an arte as it applies to a specific instance of its use. The descriptions must -describe- the artes, as in their animations and effects, without the injection of personal thoughts about their effective use. I'm sure I was prepared to say more, but I've already forgotten since there are too many edits that I have to look through just because I couldn't get online at all yesterday, and you are not the only user who needs to be edit-stalked so that others can fix the mistakes that occur when you make your edits.
