  • Hello, I'm Lucas and I'm a member of the Fandom Anime Content Team. Basically, it's my job to help anime focused wikis grow, and act as a resource to those communities. 

    I'm reaching out today to see if I can make a couple of changes to the Toaru Majutsu no Index wiki, with your permission. It wouldn't be anything major, just editing some of the more popular pages for readability and grammar, making sure every page belongs to at least one or two categories, making pages that present a lot of information easier to navagate, and other stuff like that. 

    Please let me know if it's alright for me to make these edits. I'm also more than happy to answer any questions you may have and help out with ongoing projects. Thanks for your time and have a great day. 

    - Lucas

    • Yeah, I need some tips as I'm no expert in curating social media either.

  • Hello Herald

    With regards to that update on what's been going on, given that your last action prior to a few days ago was in December, do you want it from the start of the year? Concerning the most recent stuff though, following the conclusion of Index III, we've been doing Accelerator anime plans and NT22/R-SS3 article stuff. I overhauled the Did You Know selection in May and as you know, OH&S is working on an updated slider and quick link templates. In the past few weeks, I've also tried to regain some clarity that had been lost during a holiday break and attempted to reorganize my plans and drafts (though it's still rather messy). Not that long ago, Ollerus made article #3000.

    Also, with regards to chapter/synopsis work, Auric Drake has been doing a good job going through the Railgun manga chapter articles. The OT22 chapter summaries have yet to be done. A considerable number of Accelerator chapters and the Necromancer Arc article itself are also lacking summaries but seeing as you didn't include among the ones you said you were considering, I'll consider it out of the question.

    • Backup purposes in light of the upcoming system transfer.

      The main things I wanted to ask you about involve the actions of certain users and uncertainties as to how best to tackle them. It'll take a little time for me to get the details together for some of them, but below is the first and more pressing one:

      A few days ago, while dealing with some inappropriate comments, I spotted some things which made me suspect that someone might be using multiple accounts as sock-puppets (in the comments of Accelerator, Misaka Misuzu, Misaka Worst and Misaka Tabigake). Along with Ollerus and Lord Reader, I've been keeping an eye on the accounts for further movements and evidence here. However, it came to my attention that there was another more indicative piece of evidence on the VS Battle wiki, although I wasn't fully sure if I'd be able to act on it given that it came from another wiki. Would you say that this is enough to act upon and if so, do you reckon we should act at once rather than wait for further actions?

    • If there's an available piece of proof to make the corresponding actions, go and do that. Much better if you can ask for the insights of Ollerus and Lord Reader, as well as Fandom Staff.

  • Hello Herald

    I was thinking that it has been a while since we've seen or heard from you. Is everything OK on your end?

  • Hi herald, I was hoping to make some mass categorization edits on the wiki but require to be put in the "bot" group so I can do so unimpeded.

    Would that be possible from your end?

    • I've made good use of the bot account and have migrated Category:Artwork by Kiyotaka Haimura ---> Category:Artwork by Haimura Kiyotaka.

      It wasn't seamless though. I used one script to rename the category but it stopped after 500 images. Afterwards I couldn't get a list of the remaining files in the category so I had to manually paste things into Excel and make the list there.

      I then used another script with the generated list to replace the remaining categories. Bu then I screwed up and spelt Artwork as Atrowrk leading to 800+ files with a wrongly spelt category.

      So I then ran the script again to fix the incorrect spelling.

      With everything almost done, there strange errors where some files (about 10) were still listed in the incorrect category pages even after their category was fixed; I re-categorized them manually to be doubly sure they were correct.

      Anyways, its all done. 1,311 images now correctly categorized.

  • Hello Herald

    I have a few questions for you, some of them on AS.

    First of all, how many series connected to wikis you administrate have new installments during Autumn and Winter?

  • As with the case in the days leading up to the airing of Index II, Index III's airdate has been confirmed, will you implement a countdown feature once again in this wiki?

    • Countdown JavaScript imported via MediaWiki:ImportJS and added to front page.

      Still need to tweak the format/style of the table which contains it.

      Just to make sure we're all on the same page, currently when the timer hits zero the message will switch to:

      The countdown time is set to 10pm JST (when Ep 1 airs on AT-X).

      Is everyone fine with the final message and time set?

  • Hello. We never spoke before but allow me to thank you on your hard work on the wikia. It is great. I have been doing some clean up and need some info .

    Fiamma's holy right was stated to have limited stocks by Vento. But does it mean that he can't use it many times in a row and recovers once he rests or does it mean it has a limited number of use before it permanently disappears and Fiamma is rendered normal? 

    I also asked the same question to The great eye to know his opinion. I hope I get an answer because it is killing me.

    • I'd say that it might be true that the Holy Right had limited uses. Since his fall from grace, Holy Right hasn't been used as liberally as he did during World War III. There are some reasons why: God's Right Seat is no more (and thus the Idol Theory is heavily weakened), and he was most powerful only when the rest of the world saw him as the antagonist. This is why all of Fiamma's capabilities during New Testament relied on nothing related to his powers as leader of God's Right Seat.

    • “Currently, you cannot wield the perfected version of your power as Michael.”

      “True. That’s what I want Sasha Kreutzev and Imagine Breaker for.”

      “That right arm has to have limits on its use,” said Vento interrupting his casual speech.

      “…”

      Fiamma stopped speaking, but Vento’s voice continued.

      “Because you played around with those small fries, it has already begun to disintegrate into the air. There is a theory behind the superhuman powers magicians use and members of God’s Right Seat cannot just use spells other than the special ones that have been adjusted for our use. Once your stock runs out, you are nothing more than a regular human.”

      (Volume 20, Chapter 2, Part 8)

      The quote is indeed ambiguous, maybe get someone to read the original Japanese?

    • Ambiguous. Yeah. I will try. Please let me know if you find anything else. And thank you.

  • Hello. Just wanted to introduce myself. 

    Do you use Discord? 

    https://discord.gg/tsvBV8j

    That is the link for the index reddit server. 

    And I wanted to ask, where can I find valid images for the Idol accelerator manga? I wanted to update those pages here.
