hey! I'm writing to tell you that I discovered a music video based on death note... or pretty much, it's a k-pop video called "play with me", this is the link if you wanna take a look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP7dMPSqtO0... I was thinking that you can add a new page about it or add it as a curious fact, it's pretty interesting I think... let me know in any case, bye :)
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?
Good evening! And thanks, Munch. The page could definitely use some work. I don't have a summary or translation, I just have the actual Japanese novel and I can skim it and catch the basics.
Thanks for the kind words. It's definitely a group effort, and I'm glad I can contribute to the wiki's continued growth. Thank you for your contributions as well, and it's always nice to see our regulars around!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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
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.
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.
L with cake is a Hot Topic exclusive, and he's my favorite. Hot Topic was sold out, but I found him online. I didn't get Ryuk because he kinda looks weird? Not that I need another one, but I wish they had a Misa!
