Is it ok for me to correct summaries not written by me? I just stumbled across chapter 11 and the quality of language...left something to be desired. I only changed the things that struck me the most, yet I can't help but feel like I just ruined someone elses work
I'm sorry for raising this topic again, however I think it would be appropirate to give The Warriors Wedge a little side section on this wiki, should it's popularity continue to grow. Not only to take a break from me monotonous chapter summaries, but also becuase, if I understand right, the doujinshi got Yagi Norihiros approval. Not that his approval would make it official or anything, however from my point of view it is our "duty" to cover Claymore as a whole and inform people. Leaving out the most recent (and exciting) release would fail to do so, or am I the only one thinking like that?
I felt obligated to ask you as our only active admin for permission and...would you help me?
I was roaming trough the wiki a bit, when a few questions crossed my mind:
- Why do you think the wikis community got so inactive? Was it already that inactive when you joined?
- How many times have you read/watched Claymore? (as a reference for how much "experience" is required)
- What are your thoughts on "Claymore the warriors wedge"?
- Do you think it deserves to be featured in this wiki, even though it's "just" a doujinshi? (a really good one)
- What's the story behind your nickname? (I know it's a pretty personal question, however the stories behind nicks are often amazing ^_^)
I'm sorry I haven't contributed anything meaningful in the past 2 days. I've got some pretty big things coming up, so my time is fully engaged lately. I also want to apologize if I'm too...personal right off the bat, my curiosity is one of my major flaws. Just be sure to draw a line whenever it gets bothersome ^_^
I think the wiki became inactive because the Claymore manga and anime is getting old. I also think that people have other things to do in their lives, so they can't contribute anymore. It was inactive when I joined.
I've watched the anime series twice straight through and a lot of individual episodes to gather information. I've read the manga series twice as well visiting individual chapters.
The Claymore the Warrior's Wedge is pretty cool, but becuase it's not official, it shouldn't be put on the official Claymore wiki.
My nickname comes from being an otaku I guess. :P I had anime on my mind when I came up with it.
I've been busy as well, and that's why I haven't been able to contribute too much. Hopefully I'll be able to finish a lot of the manga chapters when school is out!
Sorry to interject this heart-warming thread (really) but I must add that I am an admin here (former username:"God-Eye Galatea Fanboy"). Most of my work revolved around amending and complementing the Anime Episodes and characters with additonal detail. I started working on the manga episodes but during that time (Oct. 2015 as I recall). I will admit, my love for this series withered because it was just me on this wiki. I certainly will return to full-throttle mode but I will be glad to help with anything. Note: I speak some Japanese - Most of my knowledge consists of Kanji characters - so feel free to help if you have a related question.
Ah, I see. If I may give you a few tips for when you start learning the language, it would be best to start learning Kanji early on and put special emphasis solely on Kanji especially in the beginning. Best case scenario is to learn all 2200 Jouyou Kanji before delving into the language because it will drastically reduce the odds of quitting it. Focus on learning the meanings so that you could make sense of written text even without being able to read it. Learning different readings for each Kanji will come naturally as you progress. But knowing early on the meaning of each character should greatly help you and only encourage to contintue learning the language. I would recommend using the Heisig Method from the popular book series "Remembering the Kanji".
I hope it will - it has helped many learners of the language. I myself don't find a need to use the pertinent method but according to hundreds online, it's amazing. As a side note, on God-Eye Galatea Fanboy's blog page there are two blogs that have been posted. Feel free to give your take.
Hey, I am fairly new to this whole thing here so I'd really need a guiding hand. You mentioned "leadership" in your blogpost, yes I know I can't speak for the whole community of this wiki, however I can at least speak for myself. I'd really like to help this wiki grow and that's why I want to contribute to it. Will you help me? If you need help with entries, just tell me and I'll do my best ^_^
It would be great to have some help writing a few of the summaries. I've written a few, and I'm planning to add them after I finish all of the formatting. With a busy schedule, I haven't had too much time to write them, but I'm working on it. Feel free to add entries to those that need them. ^-^
You said you wanted to be the leader and a leader you shall be...or at least a teacher to me ;). So, I've just finished the summary of chapter 60, would you mind looking through it? As I said I have absolutely no experience with wikis, which drastically lowers my confidence in this reguard, and I'd need a guiding hand telling me how to get things done right ^_^
- How do I format pages? (I was unable to edit the infobox)
- Is it more appropriate to use abbreviations (eg. Isn't or it's) or the full words (Is it not; it is)?
- Are you a native english speaker? (Though I would say my english is okay-ish it would not harm having someone checking for mistakes once in awhile *embarassed*)
- Is there some other way to communicate with you through this wiki? (I feel a little bit...exposed having to post everything on your wall, especially because I will have to ask you for advice a whole lot in the beginning haha)
At last I want to apologize if I am a little bit too straight forward, it is not my intention if I sound...creepy ^_^
Thanks for your contribution, and welcome to the wiki!
The pages can be formatted similar to this: Chapter 1 Formatting. They include a short synopsis, a long synopsis, and characters in the chapters (which I am currently working on adding). Don't worry about the scenes in the detailed synopsis. I would recommend editing the infobox in source mode. If you can't do this, you have to click on the green puzzle piece and click edit to add information.
Using contractions is fine as long as they are understandable. I use them when I write, so I don't see why not. We aren't doing any kind of hardcore professional writing here. It's all for fun!
I am a native English speaker currently taking writing and publication classes in school.
There are multiple ways of communicating through the wiki. There are forums, blog posts, chat, talk pages, and the message wall. Unfortunately, there isn't a private message option because this is a wikia community where everyone can share their thoughts together. There isn't anything to be embarrassed about though; we all started on a wiki somewhere!
I will read through your chapter summaries and proofread them as needed. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Good luck and see you around!
