  • 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.

    • 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?

    • 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?

    • 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.

    • I agree. Just letting you know.

  • 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!

    • Please make these additional changes to the L video:

      • "Who is L?" at the beginning is in yellow text with a yellow border. Can a color other than yellow be used for this? A light blue or cyan maybe? The yellow is unsightly.
      • 00:31 - can the manga text be erased or blurred in this image? It's unnecessary, and because it doesn't read right it's distracting.
      • 00:45 - "Instead of catching Light," - can this be rephrased to "Unable to find the evidence to convict Light,"
      • 01:02 - "Light stands over him" - please rephrase to "Light holds him"
      • 01:06 - This image of L, Mello, and Near is fanart, so can an alternative image be used? Perhaps this?

      Thank you.

    • Bump.

      Another thing as well, on the L video, Orphanage is incorrectly spelled "orphange".

  • 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?

  • Let me know if there's an issue with me doing this. It makes editing in source mode easier. If it's fine, let me know how many spaces there should be as i'm only putting one.

      Loading editor
    • I prefer the extra spaces in the infobox so it lines up in source mode and is easier to skim, but it's not a big deal. If you edit in visual editor and it automatically changes it, that's fine. But I wouldn't suggest changing them all just because.

      I prefer the spaces in the bullets, but I think Night doesn't like them because he changes them back. Just a matter of preference I guess.

  • I don't see why I can't use templates. The mobile version is trash.

      Loading editor
    • I don't disagree about the mobile version quality, but users nonetheless reference the site on mobile. The information should be visible, and using a template unfortunately hides it on mobile.

      I can look into it more this weekend when I'm back home and see if there's a way around it. You can also ask at the Wikia community if you're interested.

    • Hey Morgan, got good news. After looking into it, the reason the template was not showing up on mobile view is because it was typed as a navbox template, which are hidden on mobile. I've retyped the template as a design template, which displays for mobile users. More info here.

      It can now be used as intended for the List of Death Note Chapters page, if you would like to continue development/implementation.

  • Hey Ky! If you feel this is worth it, do you think the staff page and the staff drop-down under the Portal tab could be updated? They haven't been changed in a couple years, and it would be convenient to have a shortcut to your message wall.

    And I have to say again that I love the colours and the new look of the wiki so much.

    ~Ever
