Re: Needs major changes
I know I'm not the one you left the message for, but Dantman is more like the behind the scenes kind of guy. Regarding the criticisms you made about the wiki:
- Categories. We use something else to group pages. If you go to the characters category, you'll see a big "You can browse this page to give you a list of Characters you can browse through and filter" at the top of the article. By clicking the link in that box, you'll go to a page which collects semantic data from the articles, allowing you to filter characters by many criteria, such as rank, chakra nature, kekkei genkai, affiliation, media, status, clan. Similar filters are available for jutsu. That link you gave for the Fairy Tail wiki isn't a category either, it's a list. You call it an eye sore, we call it useful, and despite what you think, it is organised, since we can quickly drill down any specific combination of criteria. Jōnin with Lightning Release? Quickly find Kakashi, C and Darui. Living Mangekyō Sharingan users? Kakashi, Sasuke and Obito. Fire Release-using Kage? Mū, Ōnoki, Mei and Hiruzen. Kirigakure ANBU? Ao, Kushimaru, Tsurugi, Zabuza and Raiga. You may not like it, but it works for us.
- Images. Images used in infoboxes are for how the character was introduced in the series, we don't do "current" images, since those can give loads of spoilers. Imagine if we had Kabuto with Orochimaru's remains as his infobox image. Imagine if we had unmasked Obito with Sharingan and Rinnegan as his infobox image. Should we have a Tailed Beast Mode Naruto in his infobox? Edo Tensei Madara or Nagato? We put in the infobox images of how they were when they were introduced, which means part 1 images for part 1 characters. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:04, April 12, 2013 (UTC)
