  • Hey Inmyplace, I've seen you around a lot and just wanted to stop by and say hi ... oh, and a bunch of other stuff, naturally (I apologize in advance, I am notorious for being extremely and unnecessarily long-winded).

    I first just want to voice my gratitude for all the work you have done and continue to do on the transcript pages, especially the graphic novel commentary transcripts (as Lady Lostris has already expressed). Those have kind of been exclusively my projects prior to your involvement, so I really appreciate the help. As may have been noticed, I did sort of take a break for a while because of the sheer size of the project, but I have since started up again, though mostly only touching up some of the additions you have made.

    I also wanted to reach out to you with a few inquiries. Since we are essentially the only users to work on these pages in a substantial manner, I thought it would be helpful to discuss a few elements of them. I really enjoy the way you write your contextual remarks prior to the commentary (more so than my own for sure), however, there is no debate about the fact that mine are quite different. It is my opinion that we should attempt to standardize them to some extent. First off, just want to know if you agree in that regard. Then we can discuss how we go about doing so in a way that still preserves fluency and avoids giving them a mechanical feel. I would say that we could simply establish certain criteria and pieces of information to include in the descriptions, exempli gratia page identification (as you have typically included), reasoning/context behind the comment, scene description, et cetera. This would allow for a general structure without stifling creativity in how exactly one goes about implementing it within the description. Potentially, we could also decide on an ordering of the info, if you believe it to be necessary.

    Thanks for bearing to read this, and thanks again for all your hard work.

    • Alright. One last question: Will the plan be to save the commentary pages as a reference to make the transfer easier, then delete them after the move is finished?

    • Yes, that is correct. I would say we just keep them all until all the information is switched over, then have an admin (most likely LL) delete them all at once.

    • Alright, dude. I'll try that out and see if it works.

      Also, should I be posting these somewhere else? I get the feeling that this message board might not be the best place to ask all these questions.

      With incredibly simple answers.

      None of which I know.

    • What Tono said :-)

      And buh, you can post your questions wherever you want. Don't worry about it being questions with "incredibly simple answers". They're only simple when you know. Everyone had to be shown the little tricks at some point in their "wikia career" ;-)

    • Thanks for the nomination and the heads-up, and sorry it took so long to properly respond. I think my window, however damaged, will survive.

      By the way, your avatar is epic. Just looking at it makes me smile. :)

      That's okay, however today is the last day to vote, and I don't know for sure if people can vote if the nominee has yet to accept the nomination. Glad to hear your window will survive :P

      And thanks. I got a similar compliment in the February BSST in the Valentine's section, where Minnichi complimented on how all of my past userpics have been "really creative or epic", and that her favorite was the Gandalf with sunglasses.

      Wait... was that (second-to-)last sentence a pun? Was that last sentence a freaking pun?!

    • Ok. I kinda felt like I was asking questions in the wrong place. Thanks for your patience.

    • Nah, you're doing just fine, both with asking questions as with editing this wiki. In regards to the latter, I might even say that you're doing an excellent job :-)

    I would like to inform you that I have nominated you for User of the Month for all your hard work throughout this wiki. You will need to go here and accept - I hope you do so as you have certainly been one of the wiki's hardest workers, especially in that always difficult transcript space. :)
