In light of various old and not so old series getting either rebooted (for better or worse) or a sequel, I want to know what you want to see get the same treatment. (doesn't have to be anime, can be anything)
The reason why is because I think it's kind of crazy how much has been coming back recently. Samurai Jack returning with avengeance, Studio Madhouse breaking their phobia of 2nd seasons with Overlord and One Punch Man, and now Kino's Journey, an obscure light novel adaptation that aired over 14 years ago has recently announced a new anime (sequel or reboot is unclear).
Me personally, I'm hoping for a Baccano reboot (with how much was altered in the anime, they'll need to if they want to stay faithful to the books). I'm also hoping for (and this is a huge pipedream on my part) a new entry in the dot hack franchise. While I have a soft spot for durarara, .hack has been my true passion since I first played it back when I was in middle school and I would be super hyped if we got a new entry/reboot after all these years.
I had been mulling this over for the past couple of weeks and decided to finally make a decision. As the title implies, I would like to resign as an Admin for the durarara wiki (assuming my privileges weren't revoked already). When I first started editing stuff here, it was mostly due to being bored over the summer and spun out from there since durarara was one of my bigger obsessions at the time. Now, while I still love the series, I just don't have the drive to meticulously edit and check in like I usually do. Chrome and Shiki are much better suited as admins if they haven't been appointed as such already.
To those who are curious, I recently had to drop out of college due to failing one of my classes too many times so now I'm just trying to find a job. How's that for Irony? Before I had the drive but no time, and now I have time but no drive. Also, so I don't worry anyone, I'm not in any financial trouble. I'm lucky enough to have a family that's able to support me while I search for work.
Anyway, that's the gist of what's going on right now. I know it's kind of a minor thing but I don't really see the point in having admin privileges if I'm never going to actually use them. Also, It's not like I'm not open to chat. I realize I'm not the best at checking my message wall, but I'll try to be more consistent about that in the future.
I'm sorry to hear you dropped out, but I'm also glad to hear from you. I don't know what your plans or aspirations are, but please don't be discouraged just because it didn't work out the first time. Have I ever mentioned how many times I had to take Geometry in High School? Lmao it was a lot of times....
Although you're probably going to be busy finding a job now, it's nice that you're still going to be sort of around. It'll give us an opportunity to talk to you as none of us have really talked to each other. I hope everything works out for you though. There's all the time in the world to make things how you want them.
I understand setbacks too, I had to take a considerable 'break' between highschool and collage, but I hope things start looking up for you soon. You were a great admin when you were around, but I can understand fading interest and life getting in the way.
I'm glad to hear you'll be around to chat though, you seem like a great person and you've always had great perspectives to bring to the table when it came to wiki discussions.
Hey Sol, sorry to hear about current times, but I'm glad to hear you'll still be around and I hope we get to chat. I've always been grateful when you contributed to discussions. I'm having to re-take a class needed for my major and I hope I don't mess up again this time (this is time three), so I have some idea of how it feels to lose that drive. I hope you find something soon that gives you new motivation. Wish you the best, and see you around!
I don't know if you're online, but I undid an edit from my phone where it looked like they had made Sayaka's name bold following the kanji. Nothing is showing up on my phone though, her page appears blank of info? Can you check on this?
So it's bothered me for a long time that 'locations' is a subsection of 'characters' in the navigation bar, and while browsing another wiki I saw they had a much more clean satisfying format for their navigation, and I was wonderinf if ours could be changed up a bit? I would have done it myself if you approved, but only admins can so that's out of the picture.
The idea I had was to create more tabs, where it says 'menu' and 'on the wiki' one tab could be Characters with the sub tabs Protagonists Antagonists Male Female human Non Human each linking to those categories, with dropdown menues that showed links to each character in them, another could be World with locations groups and organizations, one could be Media, with Anime Manga Light Novel Games Songs, Community with Forum Dollars chat Anime/manga hub
Maybe this is excessive and too much work, but I thought I'd throw the idea out there
I mean the light novels, sorry. There's a very minor difference between them, but it's easiest if all the boxes are the same. x1 and x2 have (JP) rather than 'America' behind release dates and such. I was wondering which way you guys preferred it. I'm at work right now so sorry if I'm not very clear on what I mean. I can barely see this box on my phone.
If possible, could you post what the differences are between the three? I believe it would make a wonderful contribution to people whom have not read the original material and only watched the animated version of this series. You could even post differences between the way how the characters act or look. Thank you.
the Naritaverse page is meant for details that actively hint at the shared universe. The baccano password thing is more of a reference as opposed to crossover evidence. I mean, they play baccano clips in the background sometimes but that isn't listed either.
This subject has come up before but no, we generally do not affiliate ourselves with other wikis unless the content of said wiki has something that directly relates to durarara. For example, we WOULD affiliate with the Baccano wiki since it and Durarara both take place in the same universe. However, the Baccano wiki is rather dead as of late so we never bothered. So yeah, sorry but we are not interested.
