  • So, with the announcement that the 2017 production was filmed and will be broadcast in December and January, would it be worth it to ensure that the wiki has access to uploads of the recordings when the time comes? The 2015 versions have the screen names of the uploaders credited in sinnesspiel's subtitles; maybe we could try to get in touch with some of them to see if they can share the 2017 versions, too?

    On a different note, when such a time comes that the 2015 versions is fully subbed with all the original English lyrics, I intend to upload both versions in their entirety (one big video for each version). Would we want to link those on the musical's video gallery page for archival purposes?

    • The entire musical (raw or subtitled) should not be provided here, for the same reason that we don't provide entire films or episodes. The wiki isn't a place for facilitating downloads like that. Acquiring the musical, even for wiki-related research, will need to be done elsewhere. If we were to include any subtitled clips, it should be with the translated subtitles.

      Feel free to discuss this with me on the wiki Discord server. I'll be on later and over the weekend.

    • Makes sense. I wasn't sure, since the production isn't available to purchase anywhere (to my knowledge), and, to my knowledge, recorded televised broadcasts are (in the US, at least) legally gray bordering on totally legal until someone revises the laws for the internet age.

      How do I access the Discord server? I literally just joined Discord last week, and am new to the whole Discord thing.

  • Good evening KylaraE. First let me thank you for all your contributions to this wikia. I still remember when this wikia was new several years ago when I first started editing here and after the hard work of users like you we have really come a long way.

    I wanted to ask, based on some of the edits you have done on a few DN:LNW, would you happen to have a summary or translated version of the DN:LNW novel? I was thinking of creating a page for it and adding the summary there for curious users such as myself. Or did you want to create the page yourself?

  • How do you feel about changing "Character" to Personality and having a background section on articles? Feels odd having background information in some characters' Character section and still having a background section.

    I also propose the background section be the very first section shown.

    • I think we use "History" almost exclusively, Jack's is the only article I noticed with "Background" instead, so let's stick with "History".

      I think staying with "Character" is fine. I see "personality" to be more about how a person acts outwardly? "Character" seems to cover more.

        Loading editor
    • That's fine. Some stuff from various Character sections should be split into History sections then.

  • You have any plans to go through the images and get rid of what doesn't belong? I was going to go through them and tag 'em but eh, there are a lot. I don't need the unnecessary edits.

      Loading editor
    • Unless something's inappropriate (I once deleted a swastika wtf), I'm not too concerned about the images. I'd rather put energy into building the visible part of the wiki than cleaning up the dark corners that no one really sees. And at least a couple of the images you had marked were in use? If you mark them, I'll eventually go through them.

      Tagging the deleted videos really helps though, since I can try to find replacements for them. I made a YouTube account to reupload videos for documenting at the wiki. After the second LINE commercial was deleted and is now apparently completely erased from all existence (Light had a fantastic manic laugh in that one and I will miss it), I've been downloading videos just in case. The deleted Othellonia trailers are now replaced with working videos.

    • I don't believe any of the images I tagged were in use anywhere of importance. (most were fanon or terrible quality and not in use) Usually, most wikias don't want images uploaded for the sole purpose of profile or forum use. If you want to share an image, an outside link can be used.

      Anyway, thanks.

        Loading editor
    • I tagged another batch of them. I still tagged some used in talkpages and such as I feel they don't belong here (the inappropriate ones at least). If you think otherwise, that's fine.

  • I propose that Netflix characters (ex. Light Turner, James Turner, Mia Sutton) be given their separate pages and their images and info are not on the Light Yagami, Soichiro Yagami and Misa Amane pages. Exceptions for Ryuk, L and Watari, since those three characters are from the manga itself, while the former three are based off of Yagami Light, Soichiro and Misa.

      Loading editor
    • All the Netflix characters are based off the original characters, whether their names were changed or not. Ryuk, L, and Watari are just as different from their original characters as Light, Mia, and James. Light from the Japanese film series and the Light from the TV drama are also vastly different characters, but we don't give them separate pages either.

      The characters are always going to be changed in adaptations, and I don't think we need completely different pages for them.

    • They were both Light Yagami though; this one isn't. But very well...

  • I already posted this in NightFalcon's wall but he doesn't seem to be replying so I thought I should better post it here again since you're active. I may sound impatient but I need a reply so I'm reposting about it again.

    So it's been around two weeks since creating the server and I was able to gather 58 members (server info ). A live chat is a great way for initiating discussions. And I think it is doing great. . I hope we can affiliate since it will be beneficial for both the wikia and the server. 

    Cheers!

    • Hey, thanks for reaching out. I'm not quite sure what a Discord server is. Can you give me a bit more of an idea what it's about and if an affiliation works differently from affiliating with another wiki?

        Loading editor
    • Discord is basically just a chat-room site meant for video games but people have made them for all kinds of things recently. There's also video/voice calling among other features.

      I believe Itsmezoro is asking we add the widget to the wikia. You can see what that looks like here, Ky.

      If it's to be implemented.

      Itsmezoro, would you be willing to let staff here edit things there? Like give roles and such? I see some things that look like issues, like the fact that there are 17 text channels. Why?

        Loading editor
    • Hey, thanks for replying!

      KylalaE, your question is answered nicely by Munchvtec (thanks there!).

      And yeah Munchvtec, I'll be willing to give the wikia staff access to roles, channel permissions or whatever you want. I'm open to suggestions if you think something is wrong.

      I have divided the server into various channels according to the topic, for eg. there are seperate channels for the anime and the manga. Also there are some hidden channels like mod-chat and logs and a temporary emote-suggestion channel.

      I think you should join the server so you can get a better idea of what's going on. Here is the invite link : https://discord.gg/Q6mzAgy

    • Thanks you two! This sounds good, I'll look into getting the widget set up.

  • Just so you know (i don't know how much contact you've had with Staff), as we have little say in the whole video bullshit. All those changes most likely won't be implemented and they'll end up ignoring us if we continue to pester them.

    If they do make all the changes, good for us. If not, it'll be something we'll just have to ignore altogether.

      Loading editor
    • I know, and I feel naive for actually thinking (however briefly) that Staff might work with us on a smooth implementation. I vaguely remember reading the blog post on the featured videos when it first went up and remembering something about communities helping with the videos, but that was apparently thrown out. Ironic that wiki-style contribution can't be handled by the Wikia Staff.

      Nonetheless, the videos permanently affixed on the wiki would preferably not be full of problems, and I'd rather not compromise on that.

  • Hi KylaraE. I'm Brandon, Manager of Content Production at FANDOM. My team is currently in the process of producing Featured Videos for Death Note Wiki. You may have heard about Featured Videos as we spoke with the community about Wiki Modernization, and how Featured Videos are part of reducing the number of ads on FANDOM.

    These are going to be what we call template style videos, with images/footage and text on the screen (but no voice over). These will live on some of the top pages on the wiki. We're in the process of producing videos for L (character), Light Yagami, Rules of the Death Note, Ryuk, and Misa Amane. The Content Producer who is making the videos, Amanda, will be reaching out to you on this thread as well to ask you for some input on some of the videos.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

  • Hey, Kylara. So I'm planning to make arcs after finishing off Part I and Part II. Let me know if you have any concerns so far:


    Name: Second Kira (arc)

    It's when the Task Force discovers there's a Second Kira, starting from episode 10, up to when Light loses his memory (episode 17).

    Name: Yotsuba (arc)

    I decided "Yotsuba" instead of "Yotsuba Kira" to stay consistent with the constant one-word titles in Death Note. Episodes 17-25. When Light loses his memory and battles Yotsuba with L.

    Name: America (arc)

    When Mello kidnaps Sayu and Katimura, and takes the Death Note. up to when Soichiro dies. Episode 26-29 (it's very short, perhaps make it a mini-arc?)


    I haven't decided what the other names should be. Anyways, any concerns?

      Loading editor
    • When you say you're making the arcs, do you mean as separate pages? I thought the Part I and Part II pages would have the smaller arcs as sections within the page, in which case they only need section header names.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, as separate pages. Although they would be worthy of mention is the "Part I" and "Part II" articles.

        Loading editor
    • The Part I and Part II pages are only useful with that kind of information. Without it, they don't serve any purpose. I don't see why it would need to be moved to separate pages?
