  • Hey Chrome, the community has been struggling to communicate with Mr. Waddle Dee and to deal with the bad edits they make. Of the eleven messages posted to his wall in the past two months, five have been ignored and the same mistakes continue to be made. The things we have addressed that he continues to do include

    • Making one-sentence edits to plot sections when there are paragraphs of information to add, and he will revisit and edit these pages one sentence at a time for several days
    • Skipping far ahead in the story when adding to plot sections, leaving out context and intermediate events
    • Adding the Story Impact section to arc pages and Special Abilities section to character pages after discussion about why this wiki doesn't use those sections
    • Adding incorrect information that we need to fact-check and correct
    • Creating new pages without filling them in
    • Adding categories that don't make sense, including "content" and adding objects to "antagonists"

    We'd like to be able to communicate with and encourage new editors, but it's difficult to do when they refuse advice and discussion - either in the chat or on their own message wall. By having to check every edit they make and correct many of them, Mr. Waddle Dee has been making more work for us.

    • I understand how frustrating this is, especially when you're unable to communicate with each other. However, I'm going to give Mr. Waddle Dee three days (from today) to respond to this before taking any action. Since the issue is with communication, it would be best if we could resolve this through communication rather than sysop action. ☆

    • Sorry, I just try to do what I can but I'm not much of a writer.

    • It's not an issue with your writing. It's the content and number of your edits. If you would take note of our complaints and suggestions, we wouldn't have to leave repetitive messages on your wall. It's really helpful that you want to add to the plot summaries, but don't edit a summary section sentence-by-sentence and make multiple successive edits to a page within a few hours. Don't include plot details without context by writing for an event that happened later when there is no text to tie it in to the rest of the summary. Don't add sections to pages that we don't use on this wiki. Check your sources before you post. Those are all honest mistakes for first-time editors, but we've reached out to you and they continue to happen. Cleaning up has been troublesome.

  • We had talked briefly about adding a Creator category, and we have a page for Narita floating around here. I'd like to make pages for Yasuda and other artists and authors of Durarara-related works, and for that we'd need a creator infobox. If you think it's worth it and have the time to make one, I compared the contents of similar templates elsewhere and have this in mind:

    {Creator |image = |name = |occupation = |born = |works = |awards = }

    • I wouldn't mind making one, but are we sure we have the information to fill out these pages? I haven't looked into the other authors, though I agree that listing them would be helpful. ☆

  • We don't have infobox templates for either chapters (manga/LN) or arcs, and we could use both. ★

    • Then perhaps that field should be "New Characters" for clarity. As for the code for the collapsable section, I'm pretty sure it's adding this into the field:

      |new = [Mikado]<br / [Masaomi] {Expand|[Walker]||[Erika]|[Kyouhei]|[Saburo]|[Celty]} etc

      If we add an illustrator section, I think the author section should be there too. The author is just as important as the illustrator, and Minidura and YxD have different authors than Drrr. I understand what you're saying about DuraLove; there are several authors in the volume infoboxes already, and if we get more info, adding a table to the volume pages could be enough.

      Thank you for making these templates!!

    • Ah, I see what you're saying. That's a good point, I'll include author sections. It's very editable so we can add and remove things at will. Hopefully, this will make things better. ☆

  • Hey, when you get home, can you change "Good Luck to the Joker " to "Say Hello to the Joker"? I used a mistranslation but Charmante corrected it for me. Thanks!!

  • I can't make the forum work, it's not letting me post. So I'll put it here:

    I'd like to change the poll, does anybody have a suggestion on what our next topic should be?

  • Replying to your edit summary; I didn't change that word.

    • Really? It's showing up for me that you changed it to friendship. That's strange, well sorry, mate. I guess it's a glitch.

        Loading editor
    • No worries.

      The word was already 'friendship' when i edited the page. You might just be seeing the entire sentence highlighted signifying a change. That's because i moved the sentence down a space, not because i changed the word. If you see something else, i don't know why.

  • On a lighter note, I saw your recent update to Community Messages which included a to-do on adding tabbers for both the Japanese and English novel and manga covers. For the main series I remember I replaced the Japanese light novel covers 7-13 with higher-quality versions, but never uploaded the Japanese covers for light novels 1-6 since their respective pages used/use the English covers at the time. 

    Should I take the new community message as a signal to upload the Japanese #1-6 main series covers?

    • Either way works for me, for some reason my Discord works fine. But I'm Chrome#0354 on Discord. Or you can use this link and join the Drrr server. It's a one use or it expires so I feel it's safe to link here. https://discord.gg/vm2YWh

      But I believe I can center the tabbers with some code. If you can send me the code on discord or here, I'll see if I can write a fix.

    • I shared the screenshot over on the Discord server, but I guess I'll share it here as well just in case. Judging from the visuals of the character infoboxes I assume you're using Europa (but I'm not 100%) which I think is why the tabs are oriented left (the Vamp! and Etsusa Bridge wikis have Europa enabled...which I should...change and tabs in infoboxes there are also irritatingly oriented left). 

      Edit: I'll send the code via Discord in a private message, since I'm not sure if any of the server channels I can access would be appropriate for it.

  • Saw your edit summary for Byakuyamaru ("They changed the way you create pages... I'm going to have to mess with this for a min."), were you referring to how if you click the add page button in the top right corner it defaults to classic editor (vs if you click on a red link to create a page it gives you the visual editor?). If you were, I remember seeing this discussed on the forums with it being changeable.

    • Testing if it'll let me reply yet. It's been giving me errors...


      Edit: 

      Okay, sorry for the delayed response. Each time I tried to reply it woud give me an error message. But yes, basically I'm talking about the top right button. It's not giving me the option to use the classic editor, it just forces me into the visual editor. I did a look through the Wiki Features in the Admin dashboard, but I couldn't see a setting to change that. I may have to come over to the Baccano Wiki and see how it works over there. :p

    • The interesting thing is that the modernization of Headers/Top Nav, etc. (or one of the technical updates around that time) made it so that creating a new page via the top-right icon would have users default to the classic editor instead of the visual editor, which is evidently not what happened to you at all. I think I remember quite a few people complaining and asking how they could switch it back...

      The Baccano! wiki's top-right "create a page" button definitely defaulted to the visual editor before the June 12th rollout. 

      If you go to Special:Preferences you can change which editor is default for you, though it affects edits and not just what defaults for creating a new page.

      Ah...yep. Rooted around in the technical updates archive - one week after the rollout of the new headers, the June 19th list of updates included one making it so that "add a new page" would respect a user's editor preferences. Definitely a response to the multiple users in the forums upset with the button defaulting to classic.

      Edit:  This user actually had issues with editor defaulting to classic all the time before the rollout of the new headers, which another user thought might have been a javascript error. I'm going to assume that in this case it's a matter of just editing your editing preferences, but I thought it was worth linking to for reference's sake.

    • I just gave it a shot, but it's still defaulting to the classic editor despite me setting it to the visual editor. OTL

      Fortunately, it's not the worst thing in the world, it'll just mean an extra step whenever I want to create a page. It's unfortunate that I can't adjust this though, the classic editor is something of a nuisance when you're first creating a page. Particularly when it comes to templates.

      Thanks for responding though! Haha I'll just take my extra step until Fandom decides to make it an option or not.
