In several occasions you have posted images in articles that already have a fair amount of them; including inserting them next to very short paragraphs that don't need images at all. This makes the articles look crowded, which has required to revert such edits. I request that before inserting an image in an article, you evaluate if said article really needs another image or if it already has enough.
Additionally, please don't forget to follow the image-related guidelines of our Manual of Style, among them:
All images should be added to the galleries of the characters that appear in them.
Images should be of 200px in size, and alternating left to right.
All images follow this format, and our standard is to have images alternate left, right, left, right. If you insert an image so it becomes the fourth image on a page (a new "right"), than you would type "right" in the above image format and then for all images afterwards you would update whether they belong on the left or right. On a long page this is potentially a lot of work.
I'm responding to this earlier thread because I saw your recent edits to Erwin Smith's page and while you did alternate the image alignment, you still are not posting them 200px size (see the formatting previously in this thread if you do not remember how). I have not made the correction yet since I would like you to do this yourself so you get in the habit of it.
Also, remember to add any new manga images to the appropriate character galleries (images are presented in chapter order) after adding them to the article.
about the videos you uploaded, I wanted to ask you no to upload any file or video you don't intend to use anywhere on this wiki, as stipulated in our image policy:
Only upload images that you are going to use (in articles, blogs, comments or forum), any images that are not used after 2 days of their upload will be deleted.
Before deleting an unused image, you must check if there is a page where it can be included, and include it if that is the case.
Galleries do not count as a valid use by itself. Galleries are only a collection of images already used in other places.
I'd like to ask you not to alter the default infoboxes on the wiki. Even if a field is not being used, it should not be deleted because it causes when we run our bot to do any large scale changes.
I did a rollback of all your edits to the Wall Titans (Anime) page to ensure all parts of the infobox were restored properly. Aside from that, I don't know where you're getting information for the Wall Titans being 50m above ground and 60m overall (you're saying they're partially underground?). I don't believe that is supported anywhere. If you can find the episode with that information, then please add it as a reference.
from the miner story in the info card of episode 25 we know that the foundation of the wall is deep underground (the feet of the wall titans ) and the rest is 50m above ground from info card in episode 8.
That's fine then. Add it as a reference. If you had inserted that as part of the post, I likely would have done the infobox rollback and added your information back afterwards. But without a reference I had no way of knowing where you were getting your information and it's been over a year since I watched Season 1.
I find a couple of problems with that reasoning that come from two assumptions:
That the section of the Walls found underground has part of the Titan body inside it. That section could be a foundation made purely of Titan crystal with the Titans standing on top.
That this section is around 10 meters high. The info card only says "four or five times the miner's own height", and the miner's height is never provided.
Also, if we assume that the "floor" the miner encountered were the Titans feet, then that'd be their insteps, meaning we still need to consider the height of the feet themselves. All of these factors can wildly alter any possible approximation, so a ~60 m estimate could end up being highly inaccurate.
Given the limited information we have at hand, I guess something like ⪆50 m (about or more than 50 meters) would be the closest figure we can provide.
Hello. I would like to ask that you stop adding "Human" and "Male/Female" categories to character articles. The "Human" category does not exist, and the characters are already grouped into their respective gender categories based on the information in their infoboxes.
The statistics were provided in a guidebook for the manga, so they should only be included on the characters' manga pages. According to wiki policy, the manga and anime pages should be completely separated, meaning that information provided in one medium cannot be applied to the other, unless specified. For example, Goggled soldier is not named "Abel" despite the fact that his anime counterpart was named as such.
As another note about the categories, almost all categories are added automatically by templates, so in very rare occasions they will be added manually. Before adding a category manually it's better to contact a staff member and ask if such category is needed.
When a page is deleted, we enter a reason in the deletion log, and that message is automatically e-mailed to you as long as you are following the page, which you do by default. Unless you went out of your way to unfollow a page you just created, you should have gotten the e-mail. Manuel had written for each page deletion:
"Read the Manual of Style and don't create pages without consulting the staff first. This page doesn't meet any standard."
"I had just deleted this page, the name is incorrect and the code is a mess, and you still didn't consult the staff before re-creating it."
Since you hadn't read the messages being sent to you, he put a temporary block until you had a chance to see them. The notice about new pages needing to be run by a staff member is part of our Manual of Style.
Adding to that, I want to highlight that the block wasn't only for re-creating the page, but as I explained in my block reason, this was just the latest in a long list of warnings we have given you for a variety of reasons; to the point that practically every staff member has posted in this wall at least once, along with other editors.
We generally don't like to block contributors who make bad edits in good faith but we try to instruct them so they can improve their editing; but when there's little to no improvement over a long period of time, a block becomes necessary since it reaches a situation where the edits cause more problems than help due to the continuous fixing they require.
For this particular case, some of the issues with the page were:
The name of the group in the official subtitles of the anime (I've seen you use fansubs) isn't neither "Eldian Restorationists" or "The Restorationists", it's only "Restorationists".
The code of the article, as I mentioned, was a mess. This reason alone required a complete revamp of the page at the least. Rune had already recommended you to use the source editor back in April, which you don't seem to be doing since breaking the code is a common issue with your edits.
You copy/pasted the quote from the manga version of the page, which is not what Grisha says in the anime.
When you initially posted the page, it had no content at all besides an infobox (which was incomplete and incorrect). The page can't go live in those conditions, even if you were still working on it. This is why we request that you consult a staff member first and preferably start building the page in you user sandbox.
After you noticed that the first page was deleted, even if you didn't see the deletion reason, you should have concluded that there had been a motive for it and asked the staff instead of going ahead and re-creating it. It couldn't have just been deleted for nothing.
In general, you need to pay more attention to the quality of your edits. Many of these details are just a matter of logic and can be easily noticed by comparing the result with other pages and seeing that it doesn't match the pattern. There wouldn't be a need for so many corrections and warnings if this was the case.
I'm blocking you again for adding a bunch of unnecessary categories to articles; even though in this thread to which you had replied only a few days ago we had told you not to do that, and I explained you that most categories are added automatically by templates and asked you to consult the staff before adding any new categories to pages, which you again didn't.
We're not going to be repeating the same warnings over and over, so you have to pay more attention because from now on, every time you do something you had been told not to do or that is against the manuals, I'm just going to drop an increasingly longer block.
Your latest editing spree broke the infoboxes in all the pages you edited. You had been warned that you usually break stuff when you edit and asked to make sure that this doesn't happen, we recommended you to use the source editor, and specifically warned you about not breaking the infoboxes; but as always it's as we never told you anything because you simply ignored it all.
You have been given way more than enough chances and yet you aren't putting the slightest effort in improving or in even listening to what we tell you. Bad edits only damage the wiki, nobody's going to be constantly behind you fixing your mess, and if you can't bring yourself to actually contribute with good edits, then it's better for the wiki to not have you around. Blocked permanently.
It looks like you've been recently posting pointless comments on blog posts like "ha", "cool", "hehe" or "just commenting" for the sole purpose of keeping a daily edit streak, which counts as badge farming and is forbidden by our policies:
This feature is intended to encourage people to help on the Wiki, not to make a high number of insignificant edits or vandalize pages just to get a prize. Any user detected doing this could be blocked, losing also all their points and badges and their position in the ranking (if any).
I request that if you want to get any of the badges, your edits at least have to be constructive, or else actions may have to be taken to stop the farming. Thank you.
Hello! Thank you for your recent edits, you've added several images to pages and your efforts are appreciated. However, our Wiki follows certain guidelines while adding images to pages and for that, I'd recommend you check the Images section under the Manual of Style.
Every picture uploaded also has its own file page, which needs to be updated with the File's Information (Description, Source, Resolution etc.). Guidelines concerning this have been specified in our Image Policy .
For all of this, editing the page in its Source is recommended.
Thoroughly go through the links I've posted above and keep an eye on the Wiki Activity.
Have a nice day!
Before continue editing, please take a moment to read our Manual of Style, it is the guide that explains the way we work on here. Be aware that your edits will be reverted if they do not follow those guidelines.
