  • Obviously, I feel like we have the most animosity between us. So, I'd like to apologise for everything. Not just for what I've send, but for the way I've been acting recently. I hope you find yourself sticking with us for a while and if you don't, I understand. If you decide to stick, let's become friends - let's not fight. That's the last thing this wiki needs :)

    • Of course, it would be bad if no one was admin and a bunch of people started to vandalise

    • True. But anyways, good luck, and as stated, tell me what is going on at the wiki. Currently from now on, you can find me here. Let's talk sometimes, as friends this time.

  • Dear Wiki Former Admin KidProdigy,

    Recently, the Wiki community has come to an issue about the format of character pages. To fix this, we are conducting a general voting session to the community for the format of the pages. To ensure that this voting session is accurately representative of the Haikyuu!! Wiki Community, we (the rest of the Haikyuu!! Wiki community) are sending out notifications to almost all Haikyuu!! WIki user that has been listed in the "No Group" group and "Administrators" group regardless of status of inactivity or activity; to also prevent several problems, unlisted or banned registered users will not be sent the notification. If you see this message, please participate in our voting session.

    Sincerely, 

    The Rest of the Haikyuu!! Wiki Community

  • I'm sorry for bothering you when you already have so much going on, but I noticed that the chapter summaries have been changed to past tense. I read your message on Healnarutoule's wall and how you prefer past tense, and I hate bringing up old issues that have already been resolved, but as someone who takes grammar seriously–sometimes too seriously–I need to say this.

    I think present tense should be used for plot summaries.

    Like Healnarutoule said, fictional works are considered timeless so they should always be discussed in present tense. If they're discussed in past tense, that really messes up the flow and other things. Stuff like "character revelation, trivia, etc" will always be discussed in present tense no matter what; they just can't be changed to past tense. So if the summary is in past tense but the trivia is in present tense...it just doesn't match.

    That aside, you said that the reason you prefer past tense is because most wikias are doing it that way; so I looked around at some of the other wikias but a lot of them use present tense (KnB, Hunger Games, Eyeshield 21, Naruto, etc). Wikipedia also uses present tense.

    I know that it might look and feel weird, and I understand the whole "summaries are histories so they should be in past tense"; but past tense doesn't work for summaries. It's not about the rules and all that stuff, but it's more about getting the tense to fit with the time flow. It's extremely hard to write summaries in past tense because there are a lot of things going on in chapters/episodes such as sudden flashbacks or a narrator talking. Healnarutoule has been doing a good job with her chapter summaries but I can tell that she has trouble sometimes deciding whether to use past or present tense. Using present tense is the easiest way.

    All in all, I'm asking for permission to write the summaries in present tense. Please consider my request and thank you very much. Again, I apologize for adding on to your troubles.

    • Sorry, due to a lot of load that has been pushing towards me I'm not able to consentrate fully anymore.

      Use the present tense for the chapter, episode or whatever on this wiki. Past tense is being used for flashbacks.

      Hope it actually finally will be resolved, at least.

    • We need (most) of these things done by tomorrow, because we can't do anything without it. Especailly navigation and the renaming of characters, plus i'm going to compile a list of episodes that need to be renamed, since it doesn't match the episode list/there's an unneeded (episode) at the end of the title. Thanks.

  • I know you're not light on giving adminship, but it seems like there's still unfinished things on the wiki we need to change. It seems you're very busy with life, but I've been on the wiki a lot as of late. Chan and Jin agree with me, but ultimately, it's your choice :)

    • There are still a lot of things that haven't been fixed on the wikia, and some of the issues have already been here before TheLittleRabbit joined. Everry time someone has a problem, the only person we can go to is you because you're the only admin here. We don't want to spam you, and I'm sure you don't want to be spammed either. We don't want you to step down. You have done much more for this wikia than any of us have; most of the pages were even created by you. We just want a second admin. You can stay as the bureaucrat, but we're asking if you can add secondary admins. You're not really a coder so why not have a secondary admin who can code for you? You will be the head of the wikia and TLR will be a second admin. But, I think we can get something sorted out if we talk to each other at the same time so is it possible for you to go over this issue with TLR, me, and maybe fattieschan on the chat? Can we can find a time to meet up on chat and discuss this?

    • Sigh, I really feel too much spammed about the same topic constanstly. Anyways, how do you actually know that I'm not a coder? I do not actually need someone to code for me. Listen, I do not pick up a second administrator out of nowhere. Just show me how dedicated you guys are for the wiki. And I know you guys are dedicated to the wiki with every bit you guys got to share for everyone. First of all, it also too early to pick up a new administrator when there is a new contributor who is getting admin rights out of nowhere without helping out with filling information.

      To be clear: I do not give administrator rights to newly registered contributors that early. Also, I do not give administrator rights to contributors who are not sharing their knowledge about the series.

      To let this finally stop, I will contribute to this wiki.

  • Hi! TheLittleRabbit didn't finish changing the wikia completely, so there are a few links on the navigation bar and main page that don't work or are redirects. There are a lot of things but I don't want to bother you too much so I'll just list the major ones:

    -On the main page, under characters, Suga (Teams) doesn't work; it only leads us to the image. Yamaguchi (Our Staff) links to a blank space instead of the List of Admins page.

    -Navigation bar: Characters:

    -Fukurodani High is spelled wrong so it doesn't link to the school page. Bokuto's name is also spelled wrong, so same issue there.

    Since only admins can edit the navigation bar and main page, I want to ask if you can fix them. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you.

    • If you could help out, could you please give a structure about how to fix the navigation bar. I'm actually bad lately with organizing. Thanks!

        Loading editor
    • Oh, sorry but I don't know either because since only admins can edit those things, when TheLittleRabbit and Fattieschan were fixing up the wikia, only TLR worked on the navigation bar and main page. So noone else knows how to code that stuff........sorry.
