Now that there is a Character Template, I'm going to ask this before I start something very big. Can I go through the old wiki articles and recreate them here? I'm talking major revisions to some existing articles, some articles getting merged (such as Jutsus. Techniques are better kept in a list format than stand alone articles.) Wikipedia Prime is nolonger a good source for Naruto info, and now with the Image Purge in effect its becomming finalized. So I'm asking here, can I take this next step?--TheUltimate3 21:03, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

A few notes...
  • Don't add character infoboxes yet, Naruto Uzumaki is just an example right now, I'm missing one or two important subboxes before we can start adding character infoboxes to Character articles.
  • Don't merge jutsu articles. We have DPL, it's possible for us to use a Jutsu infobox to create dynamic lists of Jutsus with the info, but still leave them in individual articles where they can each get more detail on them. I do intend to have more in a Jutsu article than what we have now.
  • Some of the articles have been properly copied from Wikipedia and we have that data, but other ones have not yet been copied. If you're copying articles from Wikipedia put them up at Village in Distress: A new E-Ranked Mission! as you go. (Or on another note, if they're starting to be deleted, I could always clear out our articles to a new spot temporarily... And use Export/Import to get all the Wikipedia contributions here if you want. We won't need to attribute to deleted pages then in that case.)

Understood. You can see/revert my revisions to Kakashi as that was more a test really with aid using the infobox. Personally I'm happy with the results but you can change if it its not up to standards.

Understood on the second point. Though I would make sure there is consistantcy(sp). Which language will the techniques be, their japanese names (i.e. Goukakyuu no Jutsu) their direct english translation (i.e. Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique) or their english manga/anime versions (i.e. Fire Style: Blaze Of Glory/Fire Style:Fireball Jutsu). I ask this because I'm not really sure which this wiki prefers.

Understood the last one just hadn't used it on Kakashi, but I did use it on the tailed beasts. Will add it to Kakashi now.--TheUltimate3 10:34, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Names are from the English Anime/Manga, those are the official names to use. But put up redirects from the other forms to there and use the {{translation}} template. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) current discussion Aug 24, 2007 @ 23:18 (UTC)
