Bio I am a geek with a love of quality, with humor and wit I plan on spreading what I love with others. I'm also a lover of the great and obscure like Double Fine's goods. With time, I hope to be someone who can provide for Wikia's history.
Hey Zeromaro! I'm TyA and I'm your wiki's Wiki Manager. I just wanted to stop by and check in to see how you and the wiki are doing. Is there anything you could use some assistance with? Has anything exciting happened you want to brag about?
As your Wiki Manager, please feel free to contact me if you ever need anything. Thanks ~tya 15:42, April 28, 2020 (UTC)
I think everything's fine, but that might be the problem too. Most of the material we have is pretty much all we've got. Any new material takes time and we don't have connections/translators at the ready to help provide new data. There's plenty of stuff to work on but there's not enough to bounce off of. Even some of our regulars stopped appearing per their own reasons.
I don't know I feel like there's supposed to be more to this than just getting some form of burnout.
Hi Zeromaro! I'm TyA and I've been assigned as the Devilman Wiki's Wiki Manager. My job is to help support you and your wiki be successful, be your liaison to full time staff and provide assistance however I can. If you ever need anything, feel free to leave a message on my wall or contact me on Discord (@ty#0768).
I'm looking forward to hearing back from you! 15:22, February 29, 2020 (UTC)
Hey there, I am thankful you felt I could be a good admin for the site, if anything I guess I can demonstrate I can make things nicer on wikis so definitely up for helping here.
Are you able to contact previous bureaucrats to assist with this? Otherwise may I count on your support for pressing ahead to adopt the wiki since that is a way to attain the bureaucrat role?
Unfortunately we have experienced first hand how not having one is not helping the wiki now or long term. You did mention that you are occupied with other matters, since I am able to commit to developing the site I would like to attain the rights in order to:
Make others admin both immediately and share the Discussions moderator, content moderator symbols with others now and in the future, they are there let’s allow their full potential.
Create Discussions categories - with a vast amount of people viewing online content on portable devices it would be helpful to establish Discussions properly if people have questions.
Update the mobile main page – as above, and I am able to make it easier to navigate for viewers.
Help monitor the article comments – have you seen examples of entire wiki’s being closed for deemed ‘toxic’ behaviour? Fandom actually goes there, haha, I also know how to use a spoiler template to cover certain parts of article comments. That way people’s freedom of speech is guaranteed but out of civility certain parts can be concealed that people need to hover over to see.
Use the wikis CSS to help fix the infoboxes – this wiki is an unusual case in that it’s apparently a site wide issue with the infoboxes. The CSS can help both with that portability transfer and amend the issues with them.
Update the navigation menu – should we have the “community” page as a part of the community heading? Some links need addressing, have some suggestions for alterations but would like to work with you and others to decide what is best.
we dont need any new admin's nor beurecrats, the site is fine and you're being ridiculous to constantly ask this. zermaro wouldnt make you one without consulting me prior and your past actioms and attitude do not put you in the running to get a place as one any time soon.
Hi, as of now it is a 1,125 page wiki that definitely does need admins and bureaucrats. Ideally all the current ones should be on hand to help – you can never have too many users available to help not just in the bulleted areas above.
No doubt the site is fine, but there are plenty of areas of improvement and I think it’s fantastic if there are people who would offer to help in these areas of which I can cover. It is nice Zeromaro would consult you, I also mentioned in the blog that it is definitely best if we leave all past actions where they belong in the past and move forward together. I would like to work with you both to make a better wiki for its own sake and to support the Devilman series.
Might be challenging to get privy (?) with the details on Silene’s Devilman Crybaby page when unscrupulous edits have removed relevant information and then placed the “stub” template on it. No, I’m not sure how that works either. In any case would you mind allowing me to undo the edit, changing her name back to “Silene” and then it might be worth protecting the page after that’s done?
It is the pages loss of a valid trivia point, and the chosen difference with this entry in the Devilman franchise. Discussions are good, and on that it might be worth enquiring about the issue with gallery pages (indeed the infobox ones seem to take their time in loading).
A wise man once said “There are better traits than stubbornness” true story. None of us should waver in looking for meaning in this very layered and complex series. It’s good for discussions, and getting an understanding of the content.
Netflix has chosen “Silene” as the name, and so the differences in the manga point ”Sirene” is spelt “Silene” will need to be added for this English wiki. Also “It helps people understand there is a difference as various incarnations of characters have differently spelt names, and is a difference.” Better with making the site more user friendly, it’s an interesting point people would like to know, are you sure it's good to leave it out?
“Stop looking for meaning for things that aren't there.” Why? It's unrelated to the post, and as above why would anyone stop seeing things for what they really are?
I think it would be a very good idea to add that ”Sirene” is spelt “Silene”. Trivia point for differences from the original manga. It helps people understand there is a difference as various incarnations of characters have differently spelt names, and is a difference.
Also, just as Tare’s name is changed to Taro, so too is there a name change for Silene in this English version, suitable for this here English wiki. Wouldn’t you agree?
As I stated before, those are just translations that can go either way as Sirene (with and w/out a hyphen) or Silene.
Taro is just the name given to the character because of a decision made by the makers in Japan. It is not a different way of writing the name like the above.
Japanese is a very complex language, especially when trying to translate to Western languages. Rs can be spelled as Ls and Vs can be spelled as Bs because there are no pronoucible differences. What translates to one name does not always translate to another.
It wouldn’t be proper for anyone to cease until its’ acknowledged that official sources should decide these matters. The officially referred to name, the one used across every other site (you know I’ll link every last one), the one he’s most known as and what people will be searching for should be the title. The aforementioned Banana Fish is a good example, his real name is Aslan Callenreese, and he’s known to everyone as Ash Lynx. With Ryo who he ‘really’ is, is irrelevant, the human aspect developed since birth is what Ryo Asuka is known as. It matters a lot about surface, and chiefly inner differences. The true reason is of course who they were on the inside.
As already stated, the humanised persona Ryo developed is notably different. Doesn’t matter if it’s the same person, it’s the personality (real Akira is shaped by a personality from Amon, with Ryo a human personality is shaped by a true self as Satan – but the shaped personality is what’s there and what should be focused on – it’s part of the complex stuff the Devilman series deals with). Fighting against demons is markedly different to using them to kill humans. Ryo didn’t trick himself, that was a persona developed as a human until memories came back (remember if you found out tomorrow you were Satan, with different motives, plans and appearance, you’d still be known as Zeromaro, that’s the persona who you are, same with Ryo Asuka).
"Ryo's plan might have been different outwardly, but it was no different from his true self as Satan's! He just tricked himself into thinking it was for humanity due to his faulty memory, he was just trying to kill humans off so he could have the world to himself and Akira! Ryo's plan was Satan's all along!"
Oh my, this is factually and observably incorrect. That was Satan’s plan, Ryo wanted to gather evidence to warn humans of the demons to prepare for an assault. Human Ryo personality wanted to defend them along with Akira.
Does it really bother you by having factually correct and right information? Fine, be like that, but later when the name is changed to Ryo Asuka (Crybaby) in keeping with what the official information lays out, you’ll be counted on to defend the title from those who would seek to incorrectly change it to “Satan”.
Hey, with image galleries on pages the Devilman site currently has the layout where you click to reveal more, showing eight at a time, like this example. Whether this layout is kept, or whether image galleries have there own page (the Banana Fish site is a good example of own pages for episode galleries) either way would you be able to implement an "Add photo to this gallery" like at the bottom of the page with Banana Fish? Unless there's an even better way, that seems to be the way forward for uploading images.
That's part of the wiki features when it comes to new galleries. It's active but deactivating it now would not be very good. It's already built well into the source code. You'd have to leave feedback to Community Central to voice your opinion.
Sure, if I ask if the “add” more photos button to the galleries could be added, that could be quite handy. If it is possible and we have the option, should we stick with the eight photos at a time click to see more layout on a page? Or should we simply add another page linking to the article to show all photos by themselves? They're both good of course, just depends which ones right for this site.
Turns out that add button option isn't available at this time, it could be added later but not now. As for pages that are their own galleries, I think that is going to require a ton of pictures to qualify.
It might be because the new gallery feature is on. If it's turned off here then will the add button be available then it can be changed back once the photos are on. Banana Fish has it's own page for photos, that example count as a ton?
Excellent, yes all the images fill the entire available space, have .png format, titles, that's the best way right? That 'Add photo' allows you to upload ten all at once, which is faster than the upload one photo at a time, add it to the gallery in source mode, so even if temporary that would be ideal for adding photos here.
Would you mind temporarily disabling the new gallery feature? That will allow the “Add” photo button to appear which will make uploading images easier. It can always be changed back later once the photos are uploaded if that’s right for the wiki.
See, not that bad at all! Nice one, would you mind changing the page name “Satan (Crybaby) to Ryo Asuka (Crybaby). When his name is being tagged in the write-ups it’s really something else tagging him as Satan. Ryo wanted to defeat the demons (Satan used them) Ryo knew and cared for Akira (Satan had a different type of affection) Ryo had entirely different dynamics to Satan once the memories were given back.
It’s the humanised personality of Ryo, the name everyone knows him as, that should be the page name for him.
It doesn't matter how different they were on the surface! They were the same person! Ryo's plan might have been different outwardly, but it was no different from his true self as Satan's! He just tricked himself into thinking it was for humanity due to his faulty memory, he was just trying to kill humans off so he could have the world to himself and Akira! Ryo's plan was Satan's all along! They aren't that distinct, Satan's just more unhinged since he doesn't have to pull punches!
If you have any further comments go bother Spellvader about it. Because I am done listening to that.
