  • Hello! Since I've been trying to boost up the quality of the Hama article, I was wondering what sort of changes you thought would be helpful in order to see it get nominated around the end of the month.

    • My criteria are generally speaking: completeness of the article (meaning going through every episode that features said character to see if all information has been included in one form or another in the article), a good ratio of relevant images (emphasis remains the written word), and fluent writing (word variation, sentence length variation, etc.)

      I don't really have the time to look at the Hama article right now to give specific points for that article, sorry :-/

  • Hi, just for letting you know. This user has removed the content of some pages without any reason, could you please check to his edits, and take an action like a block?

  • For tedious edits such as switching all 30+ articles in Category A to Category B, is there a way for admins to set up large-scale bot edits like what you did on The Game Theorists Wiki last year, or would I need to create a separate bot account?

  • Mind running her to move all instances of [[Gene Yang]] to [[Gene Luen Yang]]? There's 62 instances on the Main namespace and I'm not exactly the most keen on doing that manually.

    • We do not see the need to take such action. If severe vandalism would ever occur, we'll take the appropriate steps then, but we do not really believe in edit protecting pages as preventive measures. There are benefits to having the main page be editable by all--within reason and according to our rules--that outweigh the benefits of being a step ahead of a hypothetical vandal attack. Thank you for your concern though, it's much appreciated :-D

  • Hi, I noticed you removed my new entry for “Hot cakes”. In the episode “Into the Inferno”, Sokka lures the crew of the airship into the bay area with the promise of hot cakes and sweet cream to celebrate a crew member’s birthday before dropping them all through the bomb doors. I didn’t get to the episode reference yet because I wanted to check that template you once mentioned to me to make sure I got it right.

  • I undid Fire Eater's edit on the basis of it being speculation, but the more I think about it, the more I start to doubt that. Mark Hamill is credited with 'additional voices' in that episode, and the vocal turn does match, even to someone who isn't very familiar with him as a voice actor, like me. So I'm basically 99% certain that it is Hamill, and especailly with that additional voices credit, I'm starting to lean more towards 'list it'. Or am I missing the point?

      This also begs the question whether or not he actually is part of SAG-AFTRA and whether or not the contract was adapted in any way. Basing ourselves on a general sample contract is useless as it doesn't show the specifics of Hamill's terms. Maybe that's my occupational hazard, but unless you're working with the signed contract, it's useless.

      I support Tono's suggestion of just asking Hamill, that way this is settled for him.

      The long term issue is about whether or not we allow user-claimed credits. Because that's what we would be doing here, even if we could make it an "educated guess". This wiki's MO has always been to use verifiable sources. The meaning of "speculation" on this wiki is "without verifiable source", not "educational guess". Stupid example: Yue Bay and Kyoshi Brigde. We don't list that they're named after Yue and Kyoshi respectively, even though the chances are real that they are. We could make educated guesses in that line, because why else would those locations carry those names? Even so, there is no source to claim that definitely. It's not because fact A and B could lead to conclusion C that conclusion C is the only way to go. For all we know A and B could also lead to D and E. Without an verifiable source, we simply don't know. Just making the claim based on an educated guess and some facts that could allude to C is not how we work here. If we're not sure, we just do not list it.

      Fire Eater wrote: [...] what a simple observation will readily confirm by itself.

      It's not about overcomplicating, it's about verification. To make a comparison, Iroh's two voice actors: you may have easily picked up on the fact that Iroh had two voice actors, but I can guarantee you that others did not. So while you may have pointed out "it's certainly a different person, I can confirm it by listening", others may counter that by confirming that they hear the same person. The only reason why we do list another voice actor is because we have objective sources saying so. We can verify that there were in fact two voice actors for Iroh's character, thus moving beyond the level of the subjective observation.

    • Yeah, despite the fact that Nickelodeon can only employ SAG members, there could be a change in the contract that we are not privy to. I was merely giving it as justification that everyone is credited.

      But that last point I honestly have to concede. Everything I've presented is not directly verifiable; it should not be added. I can go through the rest of the pages in Category: Minor characters and make sure no voice actors are listed.

  • So, one thing I thought about was making a new article for the new airbender nation, since I feel like they play a larger role in the world of Korra than the air acolytes, and there's more noteworthy information on them than is displayed in the general article for the Air Nomads. Does this sound like something that would be a good idea to you, or should I just expand on the currently existing article?
