Hi FutureKnightX! I'm Mike from FANDOM's Community Development Team! With the release of the new anime based on IDOLiSH7 starting, I'm reaching out to you to see if you are interested in turning on the Discussions feature for your community, and migrating your Threaded Forums across as well.
In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced in 2016 to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly, and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. You can read more about Discussions here.
For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.
If you have some concerns, Discussions and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.
Let me know what you think, and if you want to proceed I can get the ball rolling!
On a related note, I noticed that your current wordmark still uses "wikia." While this was encouraged several years ago, FANDOM has gone back to referring to individual communities as "wikis" over "wikias." I have mocked up a new wordmark design on my sandbox that you can use.
Also, will there be any creation of individual episode pages for the anime?
First off, thank you! Seriously! As I’m sure you are aware or at least can guess, we are suffering from a lack of dedicated editors. Though, I suppose my occasional inactivity doesn’t help. I very much appreciate this!
I will discuss this with the other admins. Pretty sure we will take you up on your generous offers. And yeah, we should make pages for the anime. It’s just rather new and not sure how to start that, exactly.
No problems! Happy to help out! Let me know when you and the other admins make a decision about Discussions and I'll take care of it from there. I see you've uploaded the wordmark as well and modified it to look better than my original!
As for the anime – creating pages for the individual episodes is relatively easy and I can start off the process for to show what kind of format would be easy to carry forward. I think the current problem I see is that I can't find a site that lists information on the episodes themselves. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place, though, so if you know of any sites where that information is located, I can begin creating those pages. Something that other communities do is use a section of the main page to highlight new and upcoming episodes so they are instantly findable by visitors to the wiki.
Sorry! I was busy and the like! Well, that and I kept mulling over how to go about asking for help.
The only thing I would be comfortable with you, as a staff member, doing is just making the forums into Discussions. Apparently, I am the only one who has any sort of clue in regards to that and I figure there isn’t much in the forums right now already and closing the forums now would be better sooner over later. I honestly don’t see how anyone could complain over a feature that’s hardly seeing use as it is.
If there is any advice you have for aiding in wiki growth, I’d love to hear it!
No problems! I'll go ahead and get the ball rolling on getting the forums moved over to Discussions and let you know once it is done.
Also, I created articles for the five episodes of the anime that have aired so far (Shaking Your Heart, First Stage, Their Feelings, A Pro's Resolve, and Secret) taking information off Crunchyroll. I must admit that reading your initial message I missed the part about what you would be comfortable with me doing, and hopefully this is not overstepping. If it is, I apologise; it only registered when I re-read the message to reply.
In terms of wiki growth, the Discussions feature should hopefully help to bring in those fans wanting to talk about all aspects of the franchise, which in turn should make them contributors. Seeking out like-minded editors is also a big help, so it might be good to see if there are wikis on similar anime/mangas/games and seeing if editors are willing to help here. Seeing if the wiki can be included on a footer template that will be added to multiple wikis is also a good way of advertising the wiki to other contributors.
Nah, don’t worry too much about it. It looks like you did it the way we wanted it, anyways. It’s just that you’re a staff member and it’s just that, how to put this...I feel like we would be wasting your time?
Don't worry about it! As a member of the Community Development Team, I'm here to help support communities. So if adding a few article pages here and there and keeping some content up to date helps the community and wiki, then its not a waste of my time!
I was searching throught websites about Idolish7 (because why not?) and I found that somebody has hard time with Yuki's character because this wiki doesn't have much info of him.
That is also in other character pages minus IDOLiSH7 members.
Can this be changed? Like, more info or trivia about TRIGGER and Re:vale members.
I loaded the game about week ago and today I got this odd thing in game.
I took screenshot but I don't know how to put it here... Can I maybe send it to your email? I am here via my phone.
And can here be link to IDOLiSH7 Amino? Or Otome Amino?
It's okay if you can't play the game. Having an editor of any kind here that isn't malicious will always be welcome here (not that you ever were malicious, just pointing out the exception to my statement).
I really did like Katekyo Hitman Reborn, so it's easy to like the picture lol.
Good~ I will do my best! I look forward the time here! Hope we can be good friends!~
And good to know another KHR -fan! It was one to change me forever! But the pic is old one, as I haven't been logged in in long time now and just got my laptop back so I can be active again~
I still can't message here lot, as I can't use laptop all the time and I have school and night sleep.... So I am more on phone.... If you have any other sites or etc. that I maybe have too, tell me, please.
Hey! It's me again from phone~
(This is going awkward now...)
But yeah, I know japanese, but only as understanding talk. I haven't have time, or will have enought time to study all the kanas and kanjis..... And also, I have studied many languages that I'm going crazy..(-_-;) anf as you see, I use lot of these [-'")(^~\¤`]- marks to talk others. Don't worry, I don't use them to any things I would do here.
By the way. There is some things I need to mention.
As I live in Finland and it's my mother language, there is note that R and L letters are quite sharp... or how to describe them... but because that, those letters are difficult to separate in Japanese language way. Like, you know that R and L can be heared as same kind... or was it like that..
But for me, I don't have huge problem on that. Only minor ones are possible...
And also, my timezone is +2h. And I have school... and when it's night, I can't contact at that time... You have already noticed it, didn't you...
And I know that about R and L. It also applies to TH and S, along with B and V, I believe.
And you don't need you to learn just for me, especially as it isn't easy to learn and I am not qualified to teach (as I don't have a firm grasp on it, either). I would just appreciate another editor here, is all.
As I know, I have little problems only on R and L.... Because I have studied Russian for about 6 years in school, I somehow can separate them, even if I have problems with Russian many S letters... lol.
V and B are easy to separate as B isn't mentioned so many times in Finnish culture/ my daily life... Only in internet when I do something in English, what I actually do a lot, so B and V are more used then.
I have speciality to regonizise the feelings and emotions from talk and I am pretty sharp listener and stuff related to that...
But I need to go now. I will reply little later by my phone. My class starts now.~
Hi. It has been some time now when I were here last time. My phone was taken away for a week and laptop is still away...
I was going to ask some things... like:
As I have been listening the new MEZZO" song, I could make some lyrics for romaji and maybe for the english translate... only for the words, not any colours as I'm not familiar with them...
And the other is because while I have been into this fandom, I have gotten many fanfics ideas... I would be publishing some to wattpad... I am asking for some tips for how the story is going now and if I could example shoutout for you... or something like that...
And I will ask quickly about the new story parts. When the new parts are coming? I have been waiting them for some time now...
I will leave this here and attend to class. Bye for now.~
I've been sick and busy with a new game the past week or so, so it is okay. Thanks for reminding me that this thread exists lol.
Do a shout out to the wiki as a great resource is you like. Be sure to include a shoutout to the main English fandom Tumblr, as they do great work and this wiki owes a lot to them.
They are working on the new story right now. They showed the completed script and said that this next part will be longer than 1 and 2 combined. I would expect this to release in maybe 3-6 months and take at least a year to get through once it is up. Gotta be patient while they do the voice work and the songs lol. Maybe the second anniversary will start it off.
1. We should not do Moonlight Illuminate's lyrics as of yet. You probably seen me blast through most of the song pages on the wikia if you look at the recent edits. (lol) Sense Moonlight Illuminate is still new, its official lyrics hasn't been released. The offcial lyrics are found within the CDs, the CD hasn't been released as Moonlight Illuminate was a digital released (like the full length shuffle units songs). Now while we can do the song lyrics by ear, it's just going to take more effort(color coding/translating/ect.) than it needs to be. And, it's just a personal preference of mine that we only have offcial lyrics(translation/romaji/kanji) on the wiki.
3. Only the Part 3 Key Visuals are out and the length of the script. As Future said, it's longer than part one and two combined. Going by this timeline, I'm going to take a wild gusse that it would release between June and August. As that's when the last story update probably took place and Ainana likes to tie real world events with in game events. For the time being, side stories are being released to keep us busy.
That's about all I have to say, gomen if I sound rude in anyway. Please have a nice day.
I've asked haru about this, but haru hasn't responded so I'll ask you.
Okay, so during my two months stay, I've realized a few things. One being it's not updated regularly (ex: everything after part one stuff is... nonexistent. The wikia is already pretty far behind and that's kinda bad with part three being just around the corner.), two a lot of stuff are broken (ex: Sougo's name dosen't appear... anywhere in the categories). And I bet with the anime coming, a lot of people are going to be dragged into playing the game thus looking for more info. Three admins isn't very much and must be very difficult to manage (two must be even harder with one of them being inactive). So I was wondering if I could become an admin and help out. I have too much free time on my hands and I know quite a bit about the game,, just don't expect me to be coding anything or translating any Japanese, that's literally my weakest point. Of course if you don't want to make me an admin that's perfectly fine, I understand. (Appoligize for the text wall.)
Actually, I already recently started an (albeit slow) effort to update the wiki. But I did notice that you continued to update this place even after it was mostly abandoned. I would like to make you an admin, but I'm not a crat. I think Haru is. Crats are the peeps who can make more admins. All I can do is make you a moderator.
I would still appreciate your help! However, don't upload any card images as I will gradually add them off my computer.
Alright. One question, why is the pajamas!riku image called 'Riku Nanase (Comic Bonus 2)'? I'm confused why is there a two, you don't upgrade it to get it lol. Also, can I add the new dis one cards? I currently only have Yuki tho.
Hello! I said it in the Discord too, but this is just to make sure you're aware of recent vandalism by the IP address 18.104.22.168 ! Hope your day has been going well and will continue to go well~ ^^!
I can only think of two issues:
1)It's a unit card. Those are cards that aren't of one specific character. They don't have audio.
2)You have voices off in settings (they take up a lot of memory, so Bamco gave the option to turn them off).
So, I've been wondering how we can display the cards on the individual character's articles without having to use the tabview function, so I kind-of made this template to display the cards they way they're seen in the game itself (minus the levels and such).
Hmmm...go ahead and do it, but I feel that sooner, rather than later, it'll still take up a ton of space on the character's respective pages. I really think we should just go ahead and make a page that lists all of a specific character's cards and use those templates as the lists. It's just 12, anyhow.
I was thinking of just updating the Category:Cards and all the sub-categories of the characters' cards. A sortable table with at least previews of the cards plus stats would be helpful, but given the huge number of cards we have right now, it'll be difficult to create a full database... (should we do this, we'd better get started before more cards come out lol)
And on a related note, we should get sound files on this wiki, huh? I was thinking that since I've seen some people rip the sound bites the characters have on the home screen, we pop those to go with the translated bits on their character pages. It'd also be good to have the songs on their page, too. Will this site face legal trouble if we post the full versions of songs or do we only use the shortened versions that are in the game?
Also, sorry I haven't updated the wiki with story 2 stuff in a prompt manner like I usually do. I didn't get notified until I was super busy. I'll try to get it done within 24 hours, however. By the way, I. LOVE. LOVE&GAME...
Yeah, I got the idea from when I was going through the Ensemble Stars wiki to help a friend of mine with cosplay. They have that going there and that franchise has like, 30 characters and is only a few months older than this one.
I've seen sound bites of the home screen sound bites on blogs and stuff. I can ask around.
Oh, on an unrelated note, as I feel you may or may not know. My friend who is cosplaying is a straight male. How often do you see those in regards to fans and cosplaying of explicitly shojo male idol franchises like Ensemble Stars and Idolish 7? I'm a curious person, especially in regards to statistics like this. I just typically see straight girls crossdressing lol.
Ensemble... Stars... Ahaha, amazingly that game didn't last with me for too long. ;w;
When comes to fandoms and popular franchises/series, out of all the facets, I'm probably weakest when it comes to cosplaying. I know only a few people who are into cosplaying, but I generally don't have any problem on their choices, regardless of the target audience of the series they choose to involve themselves in and the characters they choose to cosplay. ^^
Ah ok, thanks anyways. Yeah, I looked into that game and while I adore the whole concept, the gameplay seemed really boring. It felt like I was gonna watch paint dry just to have cute boys be cute. I have better uses for my time, you know? Besides, Idolish7 is fun even when cute guys aren't being cute lol.
Anyways, back on topic, I asked the biggest source for ripped sound files I found (they also do lyric translations!) and they gave us permission to use their sound files, as long as we credit them. Know how to get the sound files off the blog?
New MEZZO song is faster than I thought it'd be, but still more or less similar to their other song, so for those who like sappy love songs, there you go. Not that I particularly dislike them. I'm just a big fan of TRIGGER style songs, is all lol.
And I know why they kept the other song a secret. An upbeat song done by Pythagoras Trio...and Gaku. Yeah...
