Hi Jfgslo; I'm Amanda with FANDOM's community development team! I'm reaching out to you to see if you are interested in a wiki update: I'd like to spiff up the main page, add a new wordmark and background skin, and also edit the mobile main page. I also wanted to see if you were interested in turning on Discussions.
In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year 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.
Yes, I'm considering it, I haven't forgotten. However, while I'm the founder of the wiki, Eindeh has always been far more active than me as a contributor and administrator, and I'm waiting for his response on this proposal. I will not take any decision before reading Eindeh's assessment, so please, if possible, wait a little bit. I will give you a response.
Hi Amanda. I've received feedback from Eindeh and I've decided to accept your proposal. We are interested in the wiki update that you explained above. The Discussions feature in particular seems very useful. So, let me know if anything else is needed from me.
Hello. I haven't seen any edit from you on this wiki to merit granting you that privilege. I've quickly checked your contributions to other wikis and, while you were blocked in one, I can see that you are a dedicated editor.
In consideration of that, I will give you the chance to convince us. Why do you want to be a bureaucrat and what do you plan to contribute to Captain Tsubasa Wiki? Eindeh and I will review your answer and throughly check your edits in other wikis and then we'll decide whether or not to grant you that status.
Now there is something I'm not sure about. In the first and second route of Captain Tsubasa 4 (the first route is where you face Netherlands in the finals of the Jairo Cup, while the second is Italy in the finals of the Soccer Grand Prix), the final match of the Latin America Cup is Brazil vs. Mexico. The thing is, it's more like "Brazil selection" vs "Mexico selection" to me, because both teams have foreign players playing in the domestic league among them (Tsubasa, Stratto. Ishizaki for Brazil; Hyuga and Wakashimazu for Mexico), and I'm not sure if this can even be put in National teams. What's your suggestion?
Ah, yes, the wacky Japanese logic. I remember that in the game. I agree with you, they really aren't national teams and shouldn't be in that section. On the other hand, I think that within the canon of the manga, Wakabayashi played as the German goalkeeper against Holland.
Nevertheless, I don't like that wacky logic, so I say that instead of adding them to national teams, we have an extra section for "Special teams" or "Other teams" like how the Captain Tsubasa 5 game article is in Wikipedia. In that section we can have "Mexico (league selection, CT4)" and "Brazil (league selection, CT4)" as well as other teams that are similarly weird, like Campione from CT5.
You mean non-canon national teams, right? I see two options:
1) Add them like normal, but add "(Captain Tsubasa X)" depending on the game at the end of the name or the anime if the case occurs. For example "United States (Captain Tsubasa 3)" and "United States (4th film)". This regardless if the article name doesn't have that extra part.
2) An special section that says "Non-canon teams" under which Africa, Asia, Europe and America are repeated as subsections.
I favor this second option as this emphasizes that they aren't part of the more well known manga.
I just realized that this part in many players' pages isn't quite accurate as the elementary and middle school team were counted as one in many cases, it's also like that with national teams and youth/top section of club teams. However adding all teams to one infobox might result in a very long list. Sure, we can put it just like the way you do in the Jun Misugi page, but I still feel it's not quite right. Your thought about this?
Well, the length of the infobox was created trying to emulate the infobox of real-life footballers in Wikipedia, like Jürgen Klinsmann, and if you see their articles you'll note that their infoboxes are normally quite large due to their teams lists, so I don't think it's an issue. But if you think they take too much space, we could simply remove the career section from the infobox altogether and put it as a normal section within the article of all players.
