Hello. I read your policies about creating pages & I just wanted to ask & reassure you about a few pages before starting.
Soundtrack & openings for the series & anime. I thought that it would be a good idea for fellow fans of the anime, manga and series to be able to listen to & be able to buy the soundtracks of the album. Such as YouSeeBIGGIRL/T:T used in Season 2 & many other episodes, with the Music composed by Hiroyuki Sawano & openings like Shinzou wo Sasageyo! for the opening of Season 2 by Linked Horizon. The list doesn't have to be super broad & long, which I can help assist with the pages for with my past experiences on wiki's.
Promotions, merchandise, etc. Another thought coming to mind, for companies & producers that produce & make merchandise, such as FunkoPop that make loads of money with people buying their products. It would also be a good idea for the anime & manga adaptations to get recognized & announced to the public. For small & big announcements like giveaways & release dates, would be good to keep a list of the winners & events that have to pertain with Attack on Titan. For example, tourist attractions & meeting with creators, producers, & voice actors of the series that will be held at that certain place would be a good experience for many fans to be able to meet people that work behind the scenes!
Anyways, just a thought & suggestion of mine. You don't have to agree with these terms because of your reasons with using a certain style for the wiki & policies in order for the Attack on Titan Wiki to stand out a little bit more compared to other wiki's. Just something that you should consider thinking about.
We already have pages for each individual OP and ED song for the series. You can see everything covered in our Music Navigation Box put at the bottom of each song page. (I pasted a copy of the nav box at the bottom of this post since it would otherwise be too long.)
If there is a legally available video of the song (not just uploaded to YouTube, but provided by the artist, the recording studio, or other official source) we like to embed it when possible. You'll see that on most of the OP and ED pages.
We do not have pages for merchandise, because that could get wildly out of hand and most merchandise is only available for a limited amount of time in small quantities. The only "merch" featured on the site are those immediately supported by the creators (like it's on their websites), which means soundtracks and character songs are in, because they appear on the Japanese anime web site, but Funko figures are out.
Meetings with creators and producers can be added as trivia to the appropriate page if they talk about certain characters, locations, plot points, etc.
Our Twitter feed is more liberal about talking about current promotions, giveaways, etc. but we don't feel it is appropriate for the wiki itself. We're a documentation of the source material, not the fandom around it.
Okay great, thank you so much for your feedback. I hope to be able to stick around to the wiki on helping it grow & expand to the public in the coming years & near future. Even if the series eventually ends & a lot of users are inactive, I'll be able to help expand & gather some images from articles. It's quite amazing how many pages this wiki has & how much work has been finished & needs to be done. Does it ever get stressful to focus on expanding on the wiki & focusing on real world activates & events at the same time?
To be honest, I wasn't really into the series since it's initial release because I had anxiety over the gore & blood in 6th grade watching other people react to the show. Now that I'm a little bit older I'm giving the series a chance to shine, which the series is not that bad. I'll have to wait for a few more years to watch the episodes & movies of the anime until I'm a little bit more mature about deaths, gore, etc. But, I have been able to watch little clips from the anime.
But overall, it's a very special piece of work that the creator was able to make happen & be able to turn it into an anime because most manga adaptations don't get the chance of having their own anime. I like the small & humorous moments between characters in the series & how they're able to shine & work together through very tough situations.
As well as, how younger & older heroes are in desperate need of saving their own race & rebuilding civilization from the gruesome titans. I quite like that about the anime on how it centers around very young heroes such as Eren, Mikasa, & Armin that have to act like adults despite being teenagers & the responsibilities that they have to take towards saving humanity.
There are many contributors to the wiki. :) It would be stressful if a single person had to do it themselves, but we have 12 staff members and a large number of regular contributors, to say nothing of people who pop in just a handle of times to add some trivia or fix some grammar. If someone needs to take a break there is certainly the bandwidth for them to do so.
Generally most users find a niche and they work extensively within it. The music section was built out primarily by 3-4 people. Other people like finding missing references. Currently I do the weekly episode summaries after the anime broadcast, but once that's done I'll move on to something else.
On the beast Titan abilities section, it mean powerful throwing. I don’t think that a beast Titan ability and more like zeke own skill. The text say a unpredecented, awe inspiring weapon which mean it was never done before. It literally something zeke came up with himself. It not a beast Titan ability. So can you actually consider it a beast Titan ability?
If someone else welding the Beast Titan power were able to do the same thing with it (i.e. throwing stuff) then I would consider it an ability or 'advantage' the Beast Titan has - even if Zeke was the first to make use of it.
As an addition to what Jinx said, I would not be against removing it since currently there is no way to tell that it's specific to the Beast Titan or something Zeke just happens to be good at because he's Zeke and he likes baseball. Like Annie's Female Titan is really good at martial arts, but that's not considered inherent to the Female Titan. That's a reflection of her personal fighting style.
If you feel this is not a proper representation of the Beast Titan's abilities, you can edit the page and remove it with a note that it isn't supported as being Beast Titan specific. This is a wiki and community edited. If you can support your argument you can make the edit.
We can always put it back if we later get another Beast Titan (future or past) who is similarly good at throwing.
Thanks for reviewing my legions of goblin edits! I hope they didn't cause you much trouble. So many articles and infoboxes contained outdated and conflicting info, so thank you for clarifying and sorting out some stuff. I did indeed notice some org templates were acting weird, but I had no one to turn to. It's good you took care of the matter in hand. However, some org and fam templates are still missing, I think. Gotta catch 'em all! As for the Alpha/Elite Squad, a bunch of infoboxes list this team as a subunit of the Garrison and 104th Training/Cadet Corps, which suit I followed. I guess those articles need to be updated, too. Oh, by the way, how do you connect/link a Wikia/Fandom account to a Discord account/profile or Attack on Titan Wiki Discord server? --Goblin King - 3000 B.C., Keeper of Evil Squirrels 14:16, March 20, 2019 (UTC)
I figured out those articles have yet to be created. As for rejected org templates, gotta stick to good ol' plain text. Yes, Sam and I did indeed discuss in detail the Discord thingy. --Goblin King - 3000 B.C., Keeper of Evil Squirrels 17:33, March 21, 2019 (UTC)
May I ask if an announcement can be made to share the news in the Discussions post here? Like I say, Crunchyroll did listen to feedback on their quite frankly odd line-up for the first awards, and the third season of Attack on Titan has been recognised as a nominee in these bonus rounds!
Great and all but way better if it were to win! So yes a great chance to use the announcements feature, if you would like : )
You currently are allowed to edit. However your edits so far do not meet the wiki's standards so they have been reverted. If you wish to avoid having your changes removed, you need to be aware of the mistakes you have been making. For instance, it's against this wiki's policy to delete messages from your wall for anything less than abusive or inappropriate content. You deleted Samuel's message and his request not to add invalid information to the wiki (I've since restored it).
We have a Manual of Style which explains our standards and contributors are expected to be familiar with it.
From the way you've been typing, it doesn't look like you have a strong written grasp of the English language. I can understand enough to know what you are asking, but if you added anything to an article with that level of grammar, it would be deleted. Unfortunately your English needs to look like it came out of a textbook. If you cannot write English at this level, but still want to contribute, you may want to focus on adding interwiki links to connect pages from the English wiki to the French wiki, where it looks like you've been active.
Please double check the grammar (especially usage of capital letters) and the coherence of the sentence before saving the edit. For example, one sentence said "to get through to the traitors" and you changed it to "to get through the bertolt".
I see you also take information from fan translations because there was another line reading "Bertolt refuses and attempts to justify his actions by stating that someone had to do it", and it was changed to "Bertolt says he cannot as someone had to get blood on their hands", which is not what the official translation says.
The official translations are available on Amazon Kindle Store, comiXology and Crunchyroll. If the copy you have says something different to what's stated on the wiki then it's very likely a fan translation, so preferably ask on the forum before replacing existing wiki information with it.
That was the page for the manga chapter though, and not even the anime articles use information from the dub, since it's not a close translation from the Japanese and it frequently changes sentences completely. Only information we take from dubs is the English names for the anime versions of characters.
First, we have a Manual of Style for a reason. It is so that the wiki reads consistently and grammatically for all readers. If you can't adhere to the style there is a very good chance your edits will be changed or reverted.
The female titan differs from most Titans in its ability to jump vertically on even surfaces as Most titans with the exception of abnormals, as well as this it is seen of being able to maintain high speeds for long distances whereas other titans seem to wear themselves out (armoured fleeing the scouts and the pure Titan running into a tree)
Even if English is not your native language, it ought to be obvious enough to you that this does not meet the standards of the wiki. Titan is inconsistently capitalized, Female Titan is not capitalized at all, you have a capitalization in the middle of the sentence that is not a proper noun at all, the entire paragraph is a single sentence that ends without a period, and you use the British spelling of the word "Armored." All of that fails to meet standards.
There are also general reading comprehension issues such as "its ability to jump vertically on even surfaces." This probably does not read the way you think it does. When I read it, I think of an even surface as the floor. There are other Titans that can jump vertically when standing on a paved street. In fact, there's one in the Trost arc. It eats Eren's leg.
After thinking about it, I realized you might mean that Annie can jump vertically to hang off of a wall, but then Ymir does that too, so that is not unique to her. And if the reader has to think about it, then the paragraph was not written clearly enough in the first place.
Secondly, if you want to support your case, you must cite it by adding a reference tag that demonstrates the evidence (this is covered in the Manual of Style). Talking about it not enough. Things cannot "seem" to be the case. The instant you make an assumption it shouldn't be on the wiki. The wiki's purpose is to present the evidence that exists, so other people can use it as an impartial reference. If you can't find a citation, then it shouldn't be there.
For instance, you want to talk about Annie's endurance, but Reiner isn't a slouch either. He didn't do it in a straight shot, but in less than a day he ran all the way from Wall Rose to Wall Maria, and he fought the Survey Corps and other Titans along the way. That's a lot of endurance! And Annie didn't even run as far as he did. Maybe he's less speedy, but he's got endurance in spades, and if you have to start nitpicking the difference between them, then that's not much of a noteworthy ability.
Ironically, there is support for Annie having enhanced maneuverability and endurance, but it's in the dialogue for an arc that has not been animated yet, so until it is, it cannot be definitively added to her anime page.
So what you spell armoured is spelling different in America?
And when the survey corps (who’s job is to learn about titans) are suprised by Annie speed and ability to jump it isn’t proof that she has unique skill in terms of her maneuverability
The moderators have told you enough amount of times to throughtly read the MoS, which is the first thing I'd advise you to do as well. Second of all, Armoured is spelt as Armored according to American English, which is something you can easily Google. A surprised reaction isn't substantial evidence for any ability.
Another thing I'd like to add is that the Moderators on the Wiki have been working on it for years and are highly knowledgeable in regards to what information is deemed necessary and what isn't. So it'd be better to respect their judgements and decisions in matters like these.
Anyhow, we can look at the context of the scene to show why her jumping is not a notable feat. The surprising thing wasn't the simple fact that she could jump. The surprising thing was that she mitigated the Scouts attack by using an unexpected move.
They're used to fighting unintelligent Titans. The Female Titan deciding to avoid an attack by jumping is a clear sign of intelligence.
The Roar of Awakening movie was released in US theaters today (well, July 10th, assuming an east coast midnight showing) along with Season 3 Episode 1. Given that the movie was a public screening of the first episode and that people are talking about it online, we are updating pages with that information. But only information revealed in Episode 1.
Yes, this means that scenes of certain character getting killed is not happening in the same chapter order as in the manga.
Attack on Titan: Roar of Awakening Season 2 recap movie. Season 3 Episode 1 is being thrown in as a bonus for the US screening since the TV air date is only a couple weeks away. That didn't happen in Japan.
Recap films are common in Japan. I don't know why since it's 90% of the same footage we've already seen. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Recap movies don't usually get US screenings, but Attack on Titan is large enough that it's an exception.
