What's on your mind?
Hi, I'm pretty new to this wiki and I was just wondering what progress that was being made towards the move to the Unified Community Platform? For example, this forum is still using Special:Forum, but Forums are planned to be removed and replaced with Discussions.
New wikis are already beginning to use the new system, and the migration of existing wikis has begun, so I thought it might be worth checking in on progress here?
They really don’t look the same with noses, like they were perfect with out them. Also Hinatas hair? It used to look so soft and now it’s scary.
Hi! I'm not even sure if this is the right place to put this, but I think that on Akaashi's profile page, his height is wrong when it's being converted from centimeters to inches. The centimeters are correct, but the conversion is wrong.
182.3 centimeters is actually 5 foot 9.8 inches. On his page, it's listed as 5 foot 11.8 inches!
Are you going to put the updated stats of characters here? :<
I was reading the english volume 29 (viz media) and in the back when it talks about character stats and stuff like that, mika was featured. Idk why the book says that she's a wing spiker tho??? (she doesn't play volleyball right?) i thought i had mistaken her for the other girl that was commenting during the spring tournament (takanashi) but i didnt lol.
(i could show the img if admin wants tho) i was wondering if this would maybe go in the trivia section or smth lol
In Ennoshita’s flashback to him quitting volleyball but then returning, Tanaka had a shaved head. Also, their third years were still with them. But in chapter 262 with Tanaka’s flashback, the third years had left but Tanaka didn’t shave his head until after. Is this a mistake on the author or am I missing something here?
Hey, I’ve spent a bit of time recently editing the chapters articles (adding plots, overviews, categories etc), and I was just wondering if there was any particular way you guys preferred having appearances listed? I always tend to list mine in alphabetical order as I feel it makes the wiki page look neat and tidy, and I edited a few older chapters so the appearances are in alphabetical order too, but I realised there’s nothing actually saying anything about them having to be in alphabetical order. So I just wanted to make sure and ask, is it okay for me to put appearances in alphabetical order? I feel like it makes it easier for people viewing the page to find out who's in the chapters :) If not that’s completely cool too, I can go revert the edits I did and focus my attention elsewhere lol
On the Tokonami High page it says Sakurai's number is 2 but his number is 12, it says it on his page and i checked to make sure.
Hey, sorry for a potentially slightly confusing post. I’ve looked through all the rules and stuff, and haven’t been able to find it, but is there any rules regarding what form of English we use here on the Haikyuu!! Wiki? For example, my country uses a mixture of Australian English and British English, so some of our spellings are different to those from America. An example of this would be the word "colour" or "color". Sorry for such a pointless question, I was just wondering if there was any preferred form of English to use on the wiki, or if it didn’t overly matter. Thank you, Midnight
Hey everyone, so there's been the recent problem with users changing statistics on character pages because they believe these stats no long apply. This is especially relevant on Hinata's page and I was thinking that we could update the ability template to include a title (link here ) stating "Original Statistics" or something similar to that; I'm not sure about the title, so we could certainly change that. Hopefully, this would help clarify things and prevent future situations like this. What do you guys think?
Okay I just wanted to notice you all: I don't know who would usually go around and fix such things but I'm currently already working on fixing it with Tsukishimas page. It has been messed around with as well and I'm not quite sure if I found all the things that where changed and not true at all. I dislike to ask for it but you should put a protection stage 1 on his page as well as it seems to get to be a new sport messing with Wiki pages for peoples own fun. I really hate this and I hope I got everything changed back to normal. If anyone finds anything thats still wrong I'd really appreacite if its fixed soon? I'd offer myself to fix it if I get messaged about it.
Season 3 Ep. 6 Koshi Sugawara just sub and served and tobio set the ball to hinata and hinata hit the ball to the blockers hand and it was out. Winning the point, but then tobio gets the serve the next ball when they never lost the ball to start with.
Not sure if this kind of post is allowed, but this has been bothering me for a while. I won't deny that I haven't been guilty of it as well, but it's only because I didn't want to cause conflict at the time (what I hope to start now is a disscusion).
The Haruichi Furudate page currently uses "he/she" as whenever it describes Furudate. That's totally fine since it's grammatically correct. However, I do understand why users have been changing it to "they".
To be honest, I would personally prefer "they" - it sounds more natural and looks much cleaner. Sure, it's not grammatically correct, but English has never been clearcut. Maybe proper writing has a certain style that must be followed, but it can't be helped that people want to write naturally on a wiki. While there is a line that shouldn't be crossed, I believe that some grammar rules are flexible and should be acknowledged without just being labled as either only wrong or only correct.
Also, using "they" to refer to something singular isn't something new. I will admit that it might be when it comes to referecing someone of unidentifiable gender, but with modernism and the growing trend of agender, I wouldn't be surprised if this somehow becomes the norm in the future.
Something I noticed that doesn't help is that the wiki isn't consistent. In Manual of Style, this is what is written:
- Personality — The personality of the character (what he/she acts like, their nature)
So whose right and whose wrong?
Some interesting reads that talk about the uses of "they" (both proper and improper):
Feel free to disagree with me. These are just my thoughts on the matter. It's impossible for all of us to use the same grammar rules, especially on a forum that anyone from anywhere can edit on. If the majority wants to keep it as "he/she", then do so. All I'm asking for is for it to be clearly stated and enforced that the Haikyuu!! wiki uses proper (and I mean, PROPER) English. To say that something isn't grammarly correctly can always be debated.
Last thing - I honestly believe there are worse grammar issues on the wiki that could be focused on.
I'm not sure if we already had a discussion about this but should the age of character go by the manga or the anime? It is currently October 27th in the anime (the Karasuno vs. Shiratorizawa match) and as of Chapter 218 it is December 9th.
I just wanted to make this clear because of other wiki contributors changing the ages of characters. I've just been going by the manga.
I've read through the guidelines and couldn't find anything about this so i thought id post it here. I was going to edit the template on the shosetsuban volume page so that the volume covers could be displayed alongside the volumes chapters (so it looks like mangas volume list). I was just going to use the same template code as the manga volume list but i just wanted to check that it was ok to do this.
Thank you :)
