Basically they're flat-shaped letters and mostly associated in writing/typing non-Japanese words, names, and languages. Assuming the character you mentioned doesn't use a Japanese-like name, then I'm quite sure her name is in "Katakana," not "Hiragana."
About the Adrian Perez guy (theseare two of his accounts), this guy is a spammer/troll. He's been creating numerous socks to spam stupid stuff on the Aikatsu wikis for months (you can see the block logs there). And he's recently been around spamming similar stupid stuff here on at least two different accounts. Seems to be barely literate, as he never responds to what people say to him and never even talks much at all and has terrible grammar. He just now created a spam page on this wiki (this). What to do with him?
Yeah...I'm kinda getting annoyed with all these junk posts around here, though it kinda morally limits me what to do as an admin, and what to not. It's like they're "kids" or something, and that I should try reasoning with them. But with this information you shared that they're just a non-responsive troll, I can freely block this scrub from posting anymore junk. Let me know if they popup again. Thanks.
Yeah I heard of Cocotama. But...I kinda haven't indulged with it yet. I'm also not much into idol culture but I did indulged briefly in Aikatsu. Yeah just kinda heard about the third Aikatsu series. And oh! Didn't knew Pripara is getting a new series like Aikatsu. That's interesting. Ha.
Sorry if I didn't reply soon enough. Got too induldged playing new indie games I've bought recently.
Sad that these kinds of franchises never leave Japan except for Asia, isn't it? I would be the happiest man on earth if AiStars, Cocotama, or Fairilu (don't hope for original Aikatsu, Tamagotchi, JPT, or PriPara since they've been out YEARS though) were announced for a Western release. Then again even Saint Seiya had failed in the West so I don't expect that happening anytime soon.
I'd say America is just full of tough guys. Though America and Japan are diplomatically on good terms. So why can't they embrace two cultures at the same time? Well it doesn't hurt to be adventureous through its target demographics. But somebody's gotta be here to keep remote wikis running for Fandom.
I'd say it's due to a lack of interested companies. Saban only has Digimon Fusion (which flopped) and Glitter Force (which was on Netflix instead of TV and had literally no merchandise), 4Kids these days exists just for Yu-Gi-Oh, and Viz hasn't done anything targeting kids since the Toonami era.
Because...kids are for kids? And the fact those companies are trying to make it "kid appropriate." So that's what they try to do: Make it kid appropriate. Remove any Asian significance, naughty tidbits, and butcher out all the original work just for the sake of "kids." Just like Sailor Moon. And Yo-Kai Watch too (though it's already for kids to begin with).
Doesn't hurt for kids to be adventurous. But then, we'd have otakus of tomorrow. If only they were raised right...
And even the Western localizations of Tamagotchi and the Jewelpet toys tried to downplay the cuteness of them and turn them into Western girly stuff. I guess for the better or worse, the non-Asia mass just isn't set for cuteness
Just going to ask this question, how should English versions of Apron of Magic cards be tackled?
A few weeks ago (it was officially announced in December 7 that it debuted in the branch I specifically visit), the game debut on several Quantum arcades in the Philippines, but started with the "Lovely" version (cards say that specific collection was localized in 2017) instead of the first. Although it seems that the older versions have been released in other countries years ago, barely any information is out there about all that.
I have around 15 non-duplicates that I can add information about, although I still haven't understood much of the gameplay since there is seemingly a lack of tutorial that I know about (3DS Hello Kitty version says it's a Rhythm game but I can't be sure about it for Jewelpet and the Apron of Magic because I can't even hear the machines...) and there is no official English site listed in any of the cards.
Here's my question, if pictures of the cards should be added to the gallery, should they have a separate section from the Japanese cards, and should their card backs showing their information be added? Thank you.
Hey, sorry for not replying soon. Overslept and got too preocupied playing games.
Really? I didn't knew they decided to release that arcade outside their country. But it's the far east and that's where Philippines is. I looked up on Facebook and I can confirm you are correctthey've announced this. I'll go right ahead and add this information regarding release in the Philipines.
As for your question about cards, yeah. If you happen to have these cards and scanned (and not by camera), you can go right ahead and upload those cards on the article. I don't know much about the Apron of Magic cards, but if they are double-sided cards, then you need to edit both images and combine each side of the card into one Wikia image, usually attached side-to-side as if they're "foldable." But if you happen to have more then what you said and the gallery becomes too big, then I'll have to shrink it down to minimize bulk. Otherwise it might have to be moved to a separate page.
Sorry for not starting ASAP, I got stressed out the passed few days because of personal issues. I added Rinko's and Akari's Idol Style cards to their respective gallery, and making subsections for both the English and Japanese cards, Japanese first. I'll scan the rest later, I didn't have enough time to scan them all a few days ago and I recently got three more cards.
Another question, should cards not exactly pertaining to the character but featuring the character in some way (ex. Garnet's Idol Style card from the Lovely Collection has her human partner Miria in it too) or have a scene from the anime featuring the character (ex. several food cards) be added into their character card galleries too?
Well, you are new you say... Well, welcome to wiki editing, I guess...
But let me explain: This is "a wiki for Jewelpet related stuff." This wiki requires information from anything that's related to the character franchise. Characters, merchandise, animation. They're valid information sources you can look into. We need background history and informative content that displays information on the official content itself. Though, that is the basic norm of wiki editing.
Your character, Anby, is a fan character. It isn't allowed because you said it's "non-canonical." I mean...that's really obvious to me so that's why I decided to delete it, since you created it. Fan made content isn't allowed. If you want to make fan-related content, then you need to do it on a fan-related wiki. You are even doing it here, you know .
Therefore...if you want to be a wiki editor, I suggest you first start off by making grammatical corrections. Then when you get used to wiki editing, then it's time you find dig into the official sources and collect information that'll help complete the article. With that, you'll be a great writer with fresh knowledge immortalized into the pages of the topic you love.
I hope you understand the reason why I had to delete your character. I'm sorry, but again, it's still not accepted. If you follow my advice that I have given you, then in no time, you'll be a intel-gathering wiki editor with dedicated writing and knowledge gathering.
You can't just force somebody through your own ideals. They aren't you. If you just keep nagging at them to do what you, then they're going to get mad at you. If I were you, I'd let other contributors write what they want. I've been wiki-editing for like over 5 years and I understood how wiki writing and information works all around Fandom.
I can really see you have fine writing skills. You capitalize, and it seems readable to me. If you improve your own English, then sooner or later you'll be an accomplished writer. A great starting potential in your growing years that will soon develop. Especially when you learn more English at a college.
Asking nicely is all you need to do. Just only one message of you saying "thank you" and being part of the community. That's what I'd do, so that they'd know that I'm a nice guy. It's the simplest way how to earn someone's trust. But if they stay silent, then that's fine. They have their own interests as they explore wiki-to-wiki.
I'm glad to see you calmed down and understood everything even after all the trouble I've been through to get you to ease up... It's my job as a respectable admin. I respect your writing skills and they have potential. If you improve your own skill over time, and understood how the society works, then sooner or later, you could be accepted all over Fandom (Wikia) with your improved writing and intel-gathering skills forged together for pure encyclopedia content.
So as you know, Wikia changed its skin (appearance) not too long ago (a month, perhaps). The wordmark is putted on the theme colour and also other changes. But that makes our Wiki's wordmark...not too pretty because it's not transparent. So I find the wordmark back and edit it to transparent:
It may be not too good because I just roughly delete the white background. But is it possible to change our Wiki's wordmark to this? Thank you.
You're right. The series pages will cover it and, just to say, Jewelpet anime is a metaseries so I don't know why it's split in to "arcs" like that because they are completely separate stories in different settings.
Easy to make, but... Hmm. You don't seem to be an admin for the wiki. If I end up just making it out of the blue, then the admins over there might get mad at me for that. You need to ask them yourself to have me make a template for them so that I can do it with their blessings. Can't just go in and rain on someone's parade they created.
Update: I'm already working on the "Itembox". But currently trying to find a way to replicate the headers of the "item image" (can't read it). I'm still working on the itembox as I said, but never thought it'd be this much of a challenge. Hah. So I'll probably ask around in Community wikia.
Hey, it's me agan. I've been trying to ask around in Community Wikia on how to replicate those headers in the itemboxes. I'm still getting no dice. So it's gonna take a long time for me to compose this...
But I assure you, I will get this itembox done for the wiki. After all, I've been asked to do it anyways.
just to let you know, i'm friends with him on fb and he is kinda a weirdo. I don't think he understand what he is doing either.(fetish maybe). He is unable to talk (aka reply) to anyone. He mostly reply with "....." as you can see with his post. I don't know what you're gonna doing with him. Ban him? But anyways prepare for some konami x yu gi oh shit from him. If you look at his fb, you will start to question everything. knew these things were gonna happen when I found out that he found this wiki.
I don't know about him but his trivial contributions are only making me more disgruntled with him. As an Admin, I'll issue a ban on him if he continues this behavior of...mouth pictures. Because, I say again: There's no appeal just by showing one part of your body.
One question for you: How much do you know about him, btw?
I know he's korean, Can't speak, love cats I think, loves yu gi oh and konami (basically photoshoping the cards and the brand to most of his pictures, Loves music game and also doing weird photoshop with it, He reply with "....." and some pictures that doesn't make sense with the post. He photoshops a lot....and all of it doesn't make sense. imagine a picture of pikachu with a konami logo on the top right and a windows 10 logo on the bottom. He loves to post the same picture all over again like 10 times or so. loves....mouth???
I just thought of him as an extremely extremely weird and uninteractable person with weird fetish. Autism much?
Btw, I don't think he understand your post or himself either.
