There's still plenty that needs to be done, so do whatever you feel like in terms of contributions. If you don't know where to start, Trails of Cold Steel I and II are in dire need of a plot summary/synopsis.
If you rather add data than write stories, there's a large number of characters that still miss their craft tables. Please use Laura S. Arseid as a template for them.
I only play Cold Steel so far, but I could also help out with articles consicering CS I and partly II (as I haven't finished it yet).
I only wanted to speak about follwoing points first:
1. Is there a page that explains the wikia's standarts? (in terms of quality) or is it enough for the beginning if I check on the other articles and use the same templates and headdings. (If not - just tell me about your standarts)
2. I am not a native speaker (you probably have noticed by now) - so my English won't be as perfect as yours or the English of all (or at least most) of you contributers - if that is a problem, tell be before hand. (In my opinion, it's more of a help if an article with typos or minor mistakes is corrected by another user than if the article has to be written by that user - but this is a topic every wikia decides diffently about, so tell me what it's like in this wikia.)
- I am contributing the Servamp wikia for excample, but I once wanted to help a wikia that expected me to write "perfect ecyclopedia style" - I am not able to do so I fear.
Just want to give my sincere apology for my edits the last 2 days. With the founder coming to shut down the wiki regardless of other's opinions, I felt much despair of my flood of contributions flooding down the drain. But I won't complain anymore
Sorry, I completely forgot to answer your message!
While a Wiki page is never 'done', I consider Laura S. Arseid's as pretty complete in terms of structure, albeit lacking in background information. Another example with a much more fleshed out Background is Kevin Graham, though it contains major spoilers if you haven't played the Sora trilogy yet.
Not being a native speaker isn't a problem. There are many editors that are natives and, as they have already indicated, very willing to correct grammatical mistakes they run into. I'm not a native either and my mistakes get corrected on a daily basis as well. Consider it an educative experience: you get to write about your favourite characters in a secondary language and natives will proofread your work for you, correct it and you'll get a e-mail (if turned on) with what has changed.
And hello Whiteknight810210!
I understand how you feel. I might have done the same if I were in your shoes. While the situation surrounding (the future of) the Legend of Heroes Wiki remains unclear, I hope you don't harbour hard feelings toward me for temporarily blocking you. Like I said before, I'm not willing to simply have the wiki's merged.
Still, what you said - that for a Kiseki fan it's relevant to know the Legend of Heroes series as a whole - got me thinking. How about we make a page for Characters, Locations and Events to which you can copy all your work? That way, none of your work on the Gagharv series will be lost and the focus of the Kiseki Wiki will stay on Kiseki.
well, let me reconsider your methodology. The merging request was a sort of an active response when I "got the message". I'm just relieved the wiki still stands, til/ we have news about our founder's fate.
I am Akemi - and I founded a German wikia for Trails of Cold Steel (I-III) recently. Yeah, it's still young and needs expandation, but I would like to ask if you are interested in a partnership with our wiki too? Here is it's link.
Different to this, our German wiki only contains information about the local Trails of Cold Steel game (and will contain info on the second and third game too as soon as they are localized here)
The main meaning in our wiki is, that German speaking Players can read about it in German to make them understand the content better.
We will have articles about Characters (of cause), places, basics on the game, gameplay etc.
If we were partners, fans could easily switch --> reading here and there to get a better understanding (mainly German speaking fans of cause)
Also I had the idea of "inderlangual links" these are links, that lead from an English article here, to the German article in our wiki.
This wiki once was partners with the closed "the legend of heroes" wiki, and I would ask a wikia staff member to be linked with this wiki instead.
Just tell me what you are thinking about it. If you don't know about ILs, just visit the German wikia on any character page, scroll to the bottom, and I guess you'll see it.
As for the "Partnership" I had added an extra link on the German's wiki main page (has nothig to do with ILs) but now the link only leads to the closed wiki. I could just insert a link to this wiki instead - of cause not without permission.
Usually you would also put a link on your mainpage (or a partner page) to the German wiki.
If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask =)
Thank you for contacting me. I speak on behalf of most editors when I say I'm impressed with the level of detail on the German Trails of Cold Steel Wikia. The articles are well written and to have even in-depth pages on lesser known subjects, such as Count Gorti, really shows your passion for the series.
For two Wikia's on the same subject with their standards raised equally high, it seems only natural to enter a partnership.
Is it alright if I leave the linking of the Wikia's and adding the interlangual links between both Wikia's in your hands?
If you don't like it, you can just create your own, no problem. (you can also change the colors - the text - whatever is on your mind. I also don't mind if you delete it, it just serves as an option for you to use it^^)
Thanks again for becomming partners.
The IL' are now active for this wiki. You can see it as an exepmple on Laura S. Arseid.
If you want to know how to use them, no problem - I will start creating the first ones here (as for the members of Class VII). Like I said, I will take care of those ILs.
The only thing I will leave in your hands is the "partnership" banner since it was ment to be on the main page (Or where ever you want to place it) and I don't want to "interfere" in such matters ;)
Hello, I'm WhiteKnight810210, one of the admins of the "soon-to-be-closing" Legend of Heroes wiki. Our founder of the wiki has decided to close the wiki, due to low editing, despite the edits of our fandomers. Because I find great pity to have most of out work flushed down the drain, I would like to request a merge with our closing wiki, meaning having all the pages adding up to yours.
I understand that this wiki is to commemorate the Trails franchise only, but the Trails series is one of the series of the Legend of Heroes universe. The rest may not have any connection to the Trails storyline, but as a true Trails fan, I believe that official history should be acknowledged to the last unimportant detail.
I apologize again if I am exaggerating much on our wiki's behalf, but in response, our pages will extend you wiki to high standards.
First of all, I'm sorry to hear that TheUnseelieCourt decided to close The Legend of Heroes wikia.
As you already point out, the Kiseki Wikia is dedicated to the Kiseki series. With its myriad of NPCs and obscure references throughout the now seven games, it already is a tremendous task the way it is. As much as I like the Gagharv games myself, the Kiseki Wikia is dedicated to the Kiseki series and the Kiseki series only.
And as you might know, the Kiseki Wikia is dedicated to accuracy and goes to any length to get the most detailed information out there. Unfortunately, The Legend of Heroes Wikia features a lot in inaccurate information, inconsistency problems, no set rules for formatting, superseded localisation and assumptions presented as facts.
Therefore, I decline your offer for a merge.
What I would suggest in this case, however, is to http://legendofheroes.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Export the pages (clustered per category). That way, you safely have stored all your work on your local computer. You can also share these XML files with me. Then I'll take my time to see what pages/information I like to use on the Kiseki Wikia.
