I noticed the fire sages have vacant positions. Given you were user of the month and you are a bureaucrat and amin on the German wiki, I believe you would be in excellent standing for the position. Try applying here.
I'm aware that the group is looking for new members, however I don't see myself suited for the position (even though I like the idea of joining). I do find it a little odd that you bring up my UoM, bureaucrat and admin titles, as I don't see how those have anything to do with me being a good match (or not) for the position. Only because I have those titles doesn't mean that they 'prove' that I am suited (or vice versa).
The main reason that I don't think of myself as fitting is because I don't apply to the requirements. "Have a good history of expansion and article wide revisions" & "Be consistent." I don't think I'm any of those, as I am neither doing big edits nor being consistent in overall.
I do appreciate that you thought of me, though. Nevertheless, I think I'm not the right one for the position.
Ah, okay. I never knew if to convert it after or before editing the image. Good to know. Do you use 444x250 for Korra images and 333x250 for Aang images? This whole size and width/height thing is still confusing to me - sigh.
Always after, because png allows you to resize without loss of quality, whereas jpg images will come out all distorted. And yes, those are the preferred sizes, but if the image doesn't allow for those measurements (for example because you want to crop someone off or something), you can have other sizes, but with the restrictions we talked about before: do not go below 250px at the least in either width or height.
Also: Rohan is categorized as an Air Acolyte, but can we safely categorize him as such if he's just a baby/pretty young child without having demonstrated any of the things acolytes usually do? I guess that him not eating meat due to growing up with acolytes and airbenders around him would be notable, but is there reason to see him as an acolyte other than that? Tenzin and his other children (while all of them being airbenders) aren't noted as acolytes either, even though airbenders and acolytes practically do the same thing with the difference that the former can actually bend air.
Also, about my edit on the Metalbending page - sorry. I had a brainfart there and didn't realize that metalbending had been invented during Aang's time and instead somehow thought it was older. ^^"
Hoh, that's a good question. I think it's safe to list him as such considering his upbringing. His brothers and sisters aren't listed as such, just like the other new airbenders, because they're airbenders. Some may or may not also follow the principles of the acolytes, but that's not entirely known.
Hey, just curious is there something which separates plantbending from other forms of bending on the page that makes it not a specialized use of the art? Rarer techniques like metalbending from ATLA become much more common in Legend of Korra, and those are alongside always-common arts such as healing under the water category. Is there any official definition of a specialized technique? (I'm behind on well over a years worth of canon material so I might've missed something)
Hey. I removed the edit because of the following that is said on the article:
"Please do not add "plantbending" as a specialized technique. Since it requires nothing special except the ability to waterbend, it is not viewed as a specialized technique"
I saw that note when I looked over the edit and due to the note I removed the addition that had been made. For plantbending you just need to waterbend the water inside the plant and don't need to perform a higher technique / sub-skill of that element like it is the case with healing for instance. While healing derives from waterbending and does require bent water, it comes with a special 'extra', for a lack of a better word, which would be the ability to heal others' wounds and check one's chi (which you also can do with firebending, apparently...).
I don't know if this is helpful (probably not), but I'm not an expert on the elements, so you might need someone who is well-versed in it. ^^" I don't think there's an official definition of a specialized technique, however, just the wiki's.
I don't see when they would have kissed during the events of the show and if they had, we would know. Besides, it wasn't until the very end of the show that they became a couple, like Kataang. So it only makes sense that it's their first kiss.
Well yes, we can assume they woudlnt' have kissed during the events of The Legend of Korra, but it's safe to assume that a bit of time passed during their vacation, and since we only see a montage it's fair to assume we don't see everything, therefore I don't think its safe to assume that was their first kiss.
But then it wouldn't make much sense to show a random kiss. Why show a random kiss and not their very first one? Besides, Asami says that "there's one more thing [she] want to do" before they kiss. That indicates that they haven't kissed so far.
Yes, and as far as I'm aware we don't label any other kisses as their first kiss unless we are certain that it is in fact their first kiss, such as Aang and Katara's kiss during the DoBS when it's made abundantly clear by Aang's reaction to it following the fact.
EDIT: Now that I think about it, that too is ambiguous due to the Cave of Two Lovers. Regardless, I think my point stands.
Hm, that is true, it's listed as their first kiss there. However, we are not a concrete source and I'd argue that it should be removed there as well as we still don't have enough evidence. If you want we can go to the War Room with this because I genuinely do not feel that we have enough evidence this was their first kiss without some sort of verbal cue. I feel genuinely wary adding this in as canon, I mean people were even reluctant to state Korrasami was canon even when the creators were sharing articles saying it was until Bryan officially confirmed it on his tumblr :P
Sure, go ahead. I would have deleted it myself but only admins can delete images, heh. The other images need to be sourced, but I'll wait with doing that until it's clear that they are going to stay on Asami's article. (We'll see what Lostris or the other users will have to say.)
Random note about the sourcing: I'm always a fan of images being sourced even if they would end up being deleted afterwards. That way, the sourcing cannot be forgotten. Besides, it's not like it's something so time consuming to do :-)
While you're here: I wanted to ask you the order of steps you do in FastStone Image Viewer because for some reason the edited images end up in a not so great quality and/or size. Would it be too much to ask you to give me a short break-down of your steps in chronological order? That way, I think, it would be a big help in aiding with the lack of images on the wiki, as I would know the necessary order of steps on how to edit an image. (Your images always seem better somehow)
I hope that's okay with you. ^^" I don't mean to be a bother or the like.
Remind me to do this later. I'm currently still at work, so I don't have the program before me, and I don't know the names of the commands that I use.
Also, what have I told you before about feeling like a bother when you're asking me questions? Didn't I tell you not to feel like that? ;-p Golden rule: you can ask me anything, and if I don't want/can't do it, I'll let you know. Like now: I can help you, just not at this instance, so prod me again in like an hour or so if I haven't gotten back at you yet :-)
You deserve it! Oh and technically you were supposed to accept the nomination before people started voting, but people have already started doing so lol so if you want to accept the nomination, now's the time ;D
Hey! I figured it would be easier to talk it over through messages rather than starting an edit war. I do think it is likely that Viper was killed, but IIRC (it has been a while) the wiki's policy is to avoid speculation whenever possible. So yes, he is probably dead, but we don't know for 100% sure, so I think it's best to keep it off of the article.
Hm. While I think that there is the possibility of him being alive, the question as to whether or not would have been cleared in my opinion. Besides, it is also said that Tokuga would do anything to reach his goals, including killing the ones that stand in his way.
I feel like if the possibility exists and he wasn't stated to be killed we should probably avoid putting it in articles, since the possibility exists that he's alive and I'd say there is a chance of it. Maybe I can ask Lostris for her opinion on the matter?
The exact quote is "This kid Tokuga, he took advantage of the chaos. He bumped off our old leader, Viper. Then started recruiting members of the other triads. Anyone who didn't fall in line didn't live long." And that's all that's said on the matter in TW1
I was thinking the exact same thing: hopefully the other parts will shed light on this matter. Though for now, I think it's best to stay as close as possible to the given information, which apparently left the matter vague 9_9
I hope so too, the novel seems to be shaping up to be about Tokuga so it would make sense that we'd get 100% clarity later. If we're really interested maybe I can try sending Irene Koh a message on tumblr and see if she'll reply :P
Ha, I once sent her a message and she did reply. However, I doubt she can give you info on that, as she's stated several times already that she isn't part of the writing team and only works by Mike's script.
Also, since you're online LL, I've got a question (another, heh): As you can see, I'm currently adding the TW characters - category (sigh) and since I haven't read the comic (entirely) yet, I'm not sure if certain characters appeared or not.
I guess I'll explain my problem/question with an example:
For instance, I do know that Ikki and Meelo appear in Turf Wars because Irene Koh had shared a sneak peek in the past with those two among the featured characters. However, I do not know if that sneak peek was related to the first issue or for the second issue, as Koh was also sharing sneak peeks of the second issue (I think) while she was finishing it. (My guess is she's done with Part Two around now.)
Since the category is called "Turf Wars characters" and not "Turf Wars Part One characters", is it still safe for me to add the former category to e.g. Ikki and Meelo's page?
Oh, and same thing with Pema and Rohan (and Bumi). I saw a sneak peek of Pema and Rohan, but I don't know if that scene is from Part One or not, so if you could help me out, that would be very appreciated. ^^"
Hahaha, don't worry. These are part of the "rules" that we make up as we go. I'm only one voice in this, it's not like whatever I say needs to happen :-p (oh, that would be so much fun. Alas :-p) So it all comes down to "find a consensus with people".
Ah, thanks! :D Do Varrick and Zhu Li appear? I do know that the latter will appear in Part Two, but does she (and Varrick, for that matter) already make an appearance in Part One?
Zhu Li appears, Varrick does not thankfully. I know it doesn't matter but thought I'd answer your question nonetheless.
And Turf Wars is great so far, definitely worth picking up a copy! I'm obviously biased due to the korrasami in it but I really did enjoy Turf Wars, the story felt complete and like a good introduction to the rest of the series.
Also, I noticed that Zhu Li is in the category "Neutral characters". Curious, I clicked on the category to see the category page with the corresponding characters and... I'm clueless.
What is a neutral character? If it's a compromise between "Major" and "Minor" character, then I think that's a little.. unnecesssary? ^^" Also, there isn't a "Neutral characters in graphic novels" category anyway, so.. Huh? xD
Though, I am curious if they have a similar political system in the Avatar world as our world. As it seems like, re-elections are on, which would mean a 4-year - term for their president. (Though, maybe that rule wasn't established and this is just a spontaneous re-election due to the sudden loss of supporters Raiko had, prompting his opponents to take advantage of the moment and go for a re-election.)
But if their politics are similar to our world's or the USA's, then maybe the president needs to be someone who was born in the United Republic, just like how the US president needs to be a US citizen. If Zhu Li should be able to compete against Raiko (because the description for Part Two says that she would compete against him in a bid for the presidency), then that would mean she was born in the United Republic of Nations..
.. and that would mean that she wouldn't be a neutral character anymore.
This is the end of my unnecessary long message depicting my thoughts.
Haha, neat theory, but yah, that completely makes the assumption that the URN's political system would be based on the US's. In France, the president can be a foreign born person. However, the changes of such a person actually becoming president is unlikely, but still, it's a possibility in theory. (However, the French president has a 5-year term.)
