On September 19th 2019, it will be ten years since the Toaru Majutsu no Index Wiki was launched. Although we've got quite a lot on our plate already, I thought it might be an idea for us to do a little something to commemorate the occasion. I'm not sure what form it will take (e.g. countdown and banner on the front page, special background image or logo, blog post, featured article update etc), but it is less than 2 weeks until then and it might take some time to prepare, so it'd be best if we discuss and decide soon.
Thanks Herald. I haven't got anything particularly solid in mind at the moment, but if you could make an adjustment so that it indicates the 10th anniversary while still fitting the style you made for it then that'd be good.
P.S. Ollerus suggested a blog post for the history of the Toaru Majutsu no Index Wiki earlier. I thought it might be a good idea but I have doubts as to whether it could be done in the time left and I don't think it would be something that I could do alone. A decision hasn't been made yet but if we do make one, would you be able to help?
I suppose we'd have to rely on the history logs and our own memories if we were to attempt a detailed version, though we don't really have enough time to do so...
Side-Note: Briefly wondered about adapting an element from Kamachi's 10th Anniversary logo into our own one, but I doubt whether it would fit as it is. Currently thinking about the banner and big poll post ideas.
I'm leaning towards the third, just like how the 10th Anniversary of Index looked like.
I'll try getting it done within the day, but I have yet to start converting my logo project from PSD to SVG for better clarity.
EDIT: Here's my initial submission for the 10th anniversary wordmark.
I went with the similar thought as mentioned before, but since kanji don't flow like Western letters, the "years" ended up on top of the numbers. The gold is derived from the Magic Side pentagram, while the blue is taken from the Science Side atom model.
It looks good to me Herald, but I've just realized that there was another factor I'd forgotten about - there are dimension limits on the wordmarks which can be uploaded in the Theme Designer (I haven't verified what the maximum values are yet but I can't get it to accept the initial version above for a test view).
I did notice it while logging yesterday. I haven't had a chance to look at them properly yet (due to RL stuff), but from a quick glance, it looks like I may well have to take action of some kind. I have to tackle a number of other tasks, so I might be delayed a bit.
i want to ask you about Touma's Dragon form, after his fight against Corozon he did lose Imagine Breaker and as of the events of NT22R, the emanation of his powers taking his form and most of Imagine Breaker including his dragon powers.
Touma also appear to confront his otherself under the form of a dragon, i add those informations and yet got erased why, does those informations are not good ? i have read the NT22R and know everything.
I hit rollback by mistake for that last one, but the For link isn't to be added to the top of Touma's article for the time being. With regards to why the information was removed, I don't know for certain why it was removed previously, but looking at the reverted edits, it might have been because it was done in an unreferenced and somewhat slipshod manner (please be a bit more careful next time).
I am currently working on an expansion to the relevant sections which will include the information in question, a temporary measure prior to a large-scale overhaul.
Hey there! I'm planning some stuff around A Certain Scientific Accelerator, and I wanted to see if you had any plans. Have we considered where that content might live? It's certainly related to content here, but I don't know if that's part of your content plan or not.
A Certain Scientific Accelerator. The series is covered here along with all other parts of the overall Toaru series. We're currently carrying out plans and work ahead of the upcoming Accelerator anime, as well as other new and recent releases.
Sorry, Magical got stuck in my head! As for specific plans, I was more trying to see if the admins here had anything planned. I definitely want to do some promotional efforts, maybe make a landing page, etc., but I also wanted to see if you had planned any efforts so I'm not stepping on toes. Do you have a Discord? Might be easier to just talk there so we can discuss what's possible, what's planned, etc.
Hello, I'm Lucas, another member of the Fandom Anime Content team like Furusato. Other projects are taking up a bit more of his time than expected, so I'll mostly be in touch from now on.
I read through the Accelerator - Plans and Progress thread, and it seems like you folks have a pretty solid idea of the direction you want to take the wiki and how to handle the recent release of the Accelerator anime. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you need a hand implementing any of those changes, I'm here to help as best I can.
I was also wondering if it's okay for me to make some edits around the wiki? It'd mostly be grammar and readability edits to the more popular pages, and also some organizational changes like making sure all pages have at least one category. Nothing major, but hopefully these edits would encourage people to stay on pages longer, explore more of it, and maybe even contribute themselves.
Lastly, Fandom is running a couple of giveaway sweepstakes that tie into the launch of the summer anime season. We already have one going for Dr. Stone, Vinland Saga , and Fire Force. We'd also love to host a giveaway tied to the Toaru wiki, if it's okay with you folks. The prize for the sweepstakes would probably be the first volume of one of the manga series, a Fandom anime t-shirt, and maybe one or two other goodies.
Sorry for typing out a book, but please let me know how all this sounds when you have a moment. Above all else, I'm here to help your wiki grow. So feel free to let me know if you have any questions or issues you'd like to discuss. Thanks!
Hello Lucas. Thank you for getting in touch and sorry for the late reply.
It should be OK to make grammatical and readability edits, so long as context is kept in mind while making them (there have been a few occasions in the past where users have inadvertently introduced distortions into article information by rewording the text without keeping context in mind - these have been a bit of a headache).
With regards to uncategorized articles, the special page indicates that all articles have at least one category and as far as I know most of them are fine, though it is still possible that a few may have slipped through the net - if so, it might take some time to track them down.
With regards to the giveaway, how would that be conducted - would it be presented via a blog post?
There are a number of questions and points which I would like to discuss in further detail, if it is OK with you. I can't convey all of them immediately, but I'll put a few down below for the time being:
As you have probably gathered, there are a considerable number of plans in progress on the wiki at the moment. A fair number of these plans have been noted down, however there are a number of them which haven't been written down yet (some of them pertaining to the overhauls which are going to be carried out on quite a few of the major articles).
Due to both internal and external circumstances, we've been a little overloaded for a while, so some additional beneficial help would be much appreciated.
With regards to structural and navigational edits, which you mentioned in the messages to Great Eye and Herald, what articles and what changes did you have in mind?
With regards to the site in general, are the Wikia Visualization images still being used?
I promise to be extrememly mindful when making grammar and readability edits. If it brings any peace of mind, I do have a background in anime and general media writing, so I'm used to convaying the more abstract and complicated ideas found in a series like Index.
The giveaway would be presented as a blog post, and have the same rules, restrictions, and formatting as the giveaways I linked to previously.
As for structural and navagational changes, it'd be mostly minor things like filling in dead links. For instance, I noticed that the 'Most Popular' link under the Community tab doesn't go anywhere. Also perhapse reorganizing the 'Characters' category so that it's organized in a way that's more intuative than just alpahabetical order. This would be a bigger undertaking, though, and I'm not sure I have the availability to work on that in the near future.
Also I'm sorry to say that I'm not really familiar with Wikia Visualization images or the situation surrounding them.
I hope this offers some clarity, and feel free to get in touch again if you have any further questions or would like my assistance in tackeling a specific project.
I am one of the admins from the Overlord Wiki who is seeking to affiliate it with the Toaru Majutsu no Index Wiki. I am asking your permission if it's possible for our two wikis to be affiliated together?
Sorry for the delay. It should be fine for our two wikis to be affiliated. Here's our wordmark. If it is still OK with you, I will add the Overlord Wiki's wordmark to our Affiliates list in due course.
We're really deep into this now, but after reading the imfdb.org page on Index III and the wookipedia's section for technological stuff on their articles in episodes for the Clone Wars/Rebels/etc.,, I would like to ask for a subsection for Artifacts, Weapons, and Technology both from the magic and science sides, and fictional and based on reality, if applicable on episode and chapter articles.
Much like the one for Index III, the purpose of this thread is to try and help with the collective work on the wiki surrounding the upcoming Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator anime (which airs in less than three months from the time of writing); to keep interested and involved contributors up-to-date with the relevant developments, to discuss matters connected to the work, and to help coordinate collective efforts on the wiki.
There is a lot less ground to be covered than for the work surrounding Index III, but there is still much to be done and not much time to do it in, in addition to the remaining Index III work and the work to follow for Railgun III, so we'll need help if we are to pull it off successfully in time.
First off, are there any volunteers who would like to help out with this endeavour?
I already modified some articles in preparation of it (images for Esther and Tarantula thanks to the PV, group image for Scavenger, images for DA and other modifications), so I guess I'm already involved.
Edit: does anyone know the identity of the red haired woman equipped with some sort of exoskeleton that Yomikawa fights in the PV?
That's perfectly OK, though it has reminded me of something - there are a number of images which are now unused as a result of infobox/navbox image shifts. I was thinking it might be an idea to make a note or keep a log when we do such shifts so we don't have to spend much time in trying to verify the now-unused images again later. What do you reckon?
Only about three minutes of the first episode had premiered yesterday. It was original. After that Okamoto Nobuhiko, Accelerator's VA, introduced anime and THE SIXTH LIE played opening theme. If you're interested, you can re-watch the show here (Youtube). A raildex fan film a video.
The three new characters that are probably anime original and show up in the trailers: the red haired (cyborg? Powered Suit?) girl that showed up in both, a glasses wearing teenage girl in uniform and a tall man that showed up with red haired girl in the second trailer. They might be part of DA.
Also new pieces of technology that might get introduced.
As for locations, maybe Yomikawa's Anti Skill station.
With regards to Episode 2, Kaysuami, there are going to be scenes from the first chapters, though the cut-off point isn't known at time of writing. Please keep an eye out for images concerning Hitokawa Hasami, Nishio and the Prototype Coffin.
I was thinking we could perhaps use a few more images from Episode 3 (flashback, charms, reanimation, Hishigata, thrown bento, restaurant, morgue (Accel/Esther), Nephentesion) - can anyone think of any others? (there will probably be a better image for the Random Number Ultrasonic Blade next episode)
Sorry, I should have been a bit more specific there. What I was considering was possibly switching the member list on the DA article to a table, similar to the approach for the Kamisato Faction, given the extra data.
In magazine version of chapter cover of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun Manga Chapter 90, Seike's gender is written as unknown. However, its reference removed in tankobon version of chapter cover of Railgun Chapter 90. Seike's esper ability is control of coefficient of friction, but Seike's exact ability name and level are still unknown.
I added a note next to Seike's gender information.
Not feeling particularly well. Anticipated coverage for today's episode is between chapters 18 and 22. The Coffins will be certainly be showing up. There might be glimpses of Seiin High School and Emperor Shun's Blade. If there are flashbacks for Esther's time with the Hishigatas this episode, the attempted revival is one to look out for.
Hundun uses a strengthened Stealth Hide (ステルスハイド,Stealth Hide?) ability equivalent of Level 5. This ability makes the user invisible by dulling the senses of the people around them, making it similar in nature to the Dummy Check ability used by Juufuku Miho in the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun anime.
