I don't know if you've noticed, but the 3rd picture in the Echidna page (The black and white one with the pregnant echidna) actually contains the character Merse. I noticed the tattoos around the stomach and chest (Which is found on post-transformation Merse), and as well as the lack of the oval tattoo on the forehead(Found on Echidna).
I would do the transferring of pictures myself, but due to my lack of knowledge in wiki editing, I decided to report this to the experts instead. (I would like to avoid messing things up as much as possible.)
Starting a 20+ comment chain about having a 'war' against monsters. I don't know if he's the one who kept doing this before but regardless, it needs to stop. I propose a temporary ban (Anywhere from 3 days to a week makes sense).
That's not a reason to not adminster punishment. If you don't, people will see that as long as they don't log in/aren't registered, they won't be punished. It's really about sending a message to people like this guy.
The spell checker can't be trusted. I have looked up the spelling of certain word in an actual dictionary, and the wikia's spelling checker seems to be very much confused. I would not use it or even pay any attention to it. I'm not sure if it's something that anyone here can fix, or if it's the spell-checker that is used universally on all wikis, but at the moment I wouldn't depend on it for the correct spellings of words.
So SilentRanger has recently gone around and started making much needed grammatical/spelling corrections to profiles that had fallen short of fluent English standards. Now, I there's nothing wrong with doing that but I asked him to put a hold on it because I want to know what you think before we make changes. There's currently a lot of debate on monster girl forums like MGU and MGR about whether the English translations that we receive from the translator need to stay the same or if they should be adjusted to make more sense. I'm all for corrections on the actual Wikia article but I think a small note needs to be added to the bottom/somewhere that says it was edited from it's original translation for grammar and comprehension. That way, if people want to access the original unedited version, they can look to the posted profile picture.
So, I've come across a couple profiles that have images in their gallery of the described monster girl but it clearly isn't depicting a monster of the Kenkou universe. I think because we're a Wiki dedicated sepcifically to MGE that any images not clearly depicting the MGE monster or in someway indicating that the monster is a member of the MGE universe, the image should be removed. If you want, we might even be able to add a page with links to things like the MG booru and Pixiv.
Sounds good. Just from what I've seen so far, there are three potential rules that I can name off the top of my head.
The 1st is what we just talked about, no non-MGE-based pictures.
The 2nd is something we're all familiar with at this point, no violent conspiracies. Now that the founder has blocked most of the people responcible for all that "war talk," it shouldn't be a problem. But, now that I can block problematic users, I'm getting an "itchy trigger finger" sort of feeling.
The 3rd is a bit unusual though. For the most part, I think there should be a rule that pages should fall into certain categories:
Mamano: which make up the majority of the MGE (and our wiki).
Locations: such as the Wonderland page that you made a little while ago or the Zipangu Region page that I made when I started working on the wiki. I aslo have a prototype for the Demon Realm in the works that's almost finished.
Books: I know we've only just gotten a bit of info on the various books so far, but a new burst of info could come at any time.
Also, on the succubus page, there are some character bios in Japanese for a mini-side story setting-type project that Kenkou made. They're something like a spin-off of sorts. anyway, I have translations for those prepared, but I'd like to here your view of them before I do so.
Setting: like Mamano page that I made a while back, for example. These would be existances that haven't been described in detail or have an entry, but are still important to the background of the series. Such as the Demon Lord, for example (I'm also just finishing a page for her). Come to think of it, there are some who think that the Queen of Hearts should have her own page (I'll leave that decision to you).
Speaking of which, there have also been mentions of various gods and goddesses in some entries, so a single page with a section for each of them might come in handy later on.
Oh, and one more thing, some users have made blog posts for fan-fiction purposes.
Interestingly enough, most of them are pretty good. And since it's within their rights to put them on blog posts, I think we should leave images that they uploaded for those blog purposes alone as long as they aren't inappropriate (like those war pictures or images that expose too much).
I think we can keep the categories down to 4: Mamano (Monster Girls), Books, Settings, or Fan-Fiction.
The Mamano page can just go under the Mamano category because that is what it is but everything else mentioned (Wonderland, Zipangu Region, Demon Lord, and Queen of Hearts) are all setting material so they can go under that umbrella.
1) This wikia is dedicated to information from the Monster Girl Encylcopedia series. This means that pictures that do not clearly show a MGE girl or show in some way that they are related to the MGE series will be removed.
2) Topics of discussion on this Wikia should remain about monster girls and any other information from or pertaining to the Monster Girl Enclycopedia series. Any talk that falls outside this range will be considering spam and the user responsible for the post will be punished.
3) Any new pages added to this Wikia must fall under one of four categories: Mamano (Monster Girls), Books, Settings, or Fan-Fiction. Pages that do not fit into one of these four categories will be revised or deleted.
Note: Wikia staff members reserve the rate to make any changes to the rules that they deem necessary.
Created the Wonderland page for a start. It's the transalted description text of Wonderland from Kenkou's website. The original source is at the bottom.
There's tons of editing and formatting that needs to be done so I figured I'd let you have the jump on it before I go to bed (Mainly because you're about the only other person I trust here to not screw up the whole thing). Regardless of if you work on it or not, I'm gonna sit down and do the whole shabang tommorrow. If you don't want to do it then feel free to ignore it.
