Welcome to Sket Dance Wikia and Thanks

Thank you for coming to Sket Dance Wikia. Since the anime is over, I'm going to through each episode and reformatting headers: Anime and Manga Differences to Manga and Anime Differences since the manga came first. Also, I'm checking each image to see if people add Fair Use Rationale and organizing them into categories. Lastly, I have to add summaries and new episode screenshots.

If you don't have a good source of images, just leave the creation of the image galleries to me. You can work on episodes, characters, manga, or whatever you want. I think character pages especially minor characters need a lot of attention.

Image Rationale

{{Fair use rationale
       | Description = 
       | Source= Sket Dance
       | Portion= 
       | Purpose= Illustrate Articles
       | Resolution= High
       | Replaceability= Only by a higher quality image of the same licensing status
       | Other Information=
In General:
{{Fair use|Fair use type}}
For Character's Profile Image:
{{Fair use|character}}
For images placed in episode's snapshot gallery:

For manga:

This is what you put on the images.

Leave the image galleries to me because your images are small. Taka shichea 09:18, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Anime Vice Image Source

My team and I have lots of episode galleries stored at Anime Vice. I haven't created the galleries here at Sket Dance Wikia since this place is not automated. You can take a few if you want.

Just take care of episodes 12, 13, and 14 if you want. I'm still taking care of the Switch Off and Ogress Arc episodes.

I'll replace those two images that I didn't have snapshots later. I got school in the morning. Sorry about that.

Hope this helps you.

RE: Gallery, Chat, and Badges

The gallery header is great, but I will not rename the episode screenshots page after the episode titles. The reason is that I have organized all of the episode image galleries by the same name, numerically. See Screenshots page.

As for the badges, I'm not a big fan of it. I thought it would good to attract more people. For the chat feature, there's nobody to moderate the chat system, and given the small size of this community, the chat system wouldn't do much. I don't think the other editors here are into chat either since there's not much comment activity on the manga and anime reports.

Please add the full fair use rationale from now on. Thank you. Taka shichea 00:08, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

No worries. I'm sorry for being too pushy. I haven't thought about proposing to Animanga Wikia. I don't think we're ready until we finish the episodes and 1-100 manga chapters.

Re: Chat and Favorite Character

I pick Switch because I connected with him more due to his origin story. I wrote a blog on how his story correlated to an article I read at my college. I'm sorry for not welcoming all suggestions. Back then, I was looking and asking folks what I can do to improve the site.

I looked at the other Wikia sites and saw episode galleries, so I borrowed them with the help of Omega and Tutles. Then, I created a list of Sket Dance covers, RocketWobbuffet created a page dedicated to Sket Dance references made by other media, and Utipintar created a list of Sket Dance DVD page.

I thank you for you suggestions.

I posted a blog for the chat system. Please see it. User blog:Takashichea/Vote: should we have a chat system?. Taka shichea 01:11, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Anime's Status, Plot Summaries, and Preview Clips

Yes, the manga is ongoing, and it's good. The short, gag stories that the anime covers are done better in the manga version. Also, there is no censorship. If you recall the School Trip Rhapsody, Part 1 episode, it had omitted a lot of manga content involving Himeko and Bossun's shower and bathroom scene. There is a possibility that the anime will resumed. I'm hoping it does air again. We don't have any news article from Anime News Network, Crunchyroll, or any credible sources when Sket Dance will air again. Don't worry about the manga, Utipintar and Balthierfan are on the job. I haven't read the manga in its entirety because I only read the chapters that the anime cover since episode 24 (Switch Off arc).

The reason why I asked about shortening your plot summaries is that most episode pages just had 3 or 2 sentences for summaries. When the anime was ongoing, we were really busy trying to finish an episode page each week together. In the early days, Lynxian or somebody else added long summaries to the first few episodes. Now, I look at your format. You put a large summary after a smaller summary. I'm thinking what to do since the wiki style guide only mentioned one summary. Right now, I'm thinking we should just have every episode include 2-3 paragraphs for summary to complete the anime project. Just merge your long summary with the smaller one into that format. Your recent work on Kaimei Rock Festival (episode) looks like the right amount for a summary. I just don't want to overwhelm new visitors with walls of text.

Don't worry about leaving a lot of messages or suggestions. I should have been more open minded.

Regarding Preview Clips on episode articles, do you mean adding videos to the wiki pages or the weekly reports I write. I don't mind if it's for the weekly reports, but for wiki pages, it seems weird. I remember in the wiki style guide that adding a gallery of images would slow down the page. A video would have the same effect. If you mean a wiki page, you can add the video to the anime screenshots page.

Can you be specific about spotlight? Forgive me, I'm not catching what you meant exactly. Do you mean a spotlight done in this community? I can do that one. I'm planning to do a spotlight blog once we get to 1,000 pages and another one for the end of the year. Taka shichea 19:49, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

Switch takes off his glasses
I knew the reason why we have a short synopsis and a long summary. I just was exhausted from doing the same thing in other Wikia communities and at Anime Vice. If you looked at the Sket Dance episode wiki pages at Anime Vice, my teammates and I finished episodes 21 to 77. We still need to fix the formatting because the recent episodes had better organization.

Since I worked over there, I have to reword my plot summaries and everything to avoid plagiarism despite that it's my words. I will add a full summary but not this month. I have to do the episode galleries first. I will help you complete the episodes just not now.

Oh, is this the snapshot you wanted? Taka shichea 18:04, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Regarding the episode's wiki style, just keep it the same.

  • Summary
  • Full summary
  • Gallery
  • Cast and Credits
  • Manga and Anime Differences

I don't know about Trivia since we do that for characters. I think it's redundant to add the same info, and it's not a consistent section since most episodes don't have it. It's better for characters.

Taka shichea 18:09, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, let's do this way. Please give me an example by adding a video to episode 1. I'll discuss it with the other wiki editors if a video's beneficial or not. Videos are more useful on the music pages.

Video Category

Hey, I visited Sword Art Online Wikia's site. I noticed they had a cool video category which I feel that this is more productive than adding videos to the episode wiki pages.
