It makes me sad to see a wiki with so much potential as that doorstopper of a comic be so... empty... maybe if you spruced it up, customized the theme and wordmark, we might be able to get more attention to it!
TBH I'm not much of a template guy, not opposed to them or anything, just seems like something to do once a page has grown significantly. Aside from name/gender I probably wouldn't know what to put in there... bad memory for details. I guess 'first appearance' and a link to the comic they debuted in would be good.
I guess I misunderstood and thought temp was just keeping a copy of the old database. Is the eventual plan to reduce the temp subsection to nothing once we know everything on it is in the theme-based subsections?
Makes me wonder if we could cross-reference it with our "series with wikis" category to see if the numbers match up. Could be hard since some series are multi-genre though. For me, usually I have less common themes (like sports) override more common themes (like romance) when trying to choose what to list something as. Most sports anime have comedy and romance and drama and all that too.
Also: would it be okay for me to put a link to w:c:Tropes:Category:Anime And Manga Pages on the Memes subsection of the footer? I got permission from a sysop to consolidate all their anime/manga related categories and articles and there is a link to the Animanga footer both in that section as well as on the homepage of the wiki itself.
Thanks for the thought - but if you go back to the "Caillou" Wiki, you'll find that the user in question has already reverted both of your edits. If I become the admin, I intend to do something about that, because such a situation can't continue, but in the meantime, I don't see how I could discuss anything with that user if she makes it a habit of removing anything that anyone posts on her talk page. As for the other users that you mentioned, well, see my comment on my original application. The rules for applying state that there should be "no sustained editing by other users," which they aren't, other than the one already mentioned who refuses to talk with anyone. Some of them are even obviously vandals.
Yeah when I left the message hadn't looked closely at the type of edits being made yet. Her removal of content precludes her from my wanting her in an authority position but if a contributor it's prob good if she has a say still.
