  • Sorry for the block, I didn't want to resort to this since you're an active contributor, but it seems to be the only way to get your attention as you seemed to have stopped paying attention to the messages in your wall.

    I've noticed that you added a contraction yet again in Surma's page, something that it's against our Manual of Style and which we instructed you twice not to add, but you still continue using on a regular basis, which forces us to be fixing them continuously. Back in November I had even asked you to remove the contractions from two pages you had just edited, but my message went completely ignored and someone else had to fix that.

    Also some days ago Samuelmathew280 gave you an instruction regarding the spoiler overlay, which apparently was ignored as well since yesterday you did exactly what he had instructed not to.

    Your summaries usually surpass the limit of 10 lines per paragraph recommended by the MoS (sometimes by far), and I'm sure you also don't pay attention to Special:WikiActivity as we've asked you at least 3 times, since our corrections and comments to your edits go totally unnoticed.

    Please use this time to look for unread messages in your wall and let me know when you have done it to lift your block.

    • I'm sorry about the contractions and the other errors. I'm used to doing it in the wiki for The Walking Dead and I have noticed myself starting to slack more often here. In regards to the summary, I have a habit of going long and before I found out about the ban, I was trimming down the one I was writing for Chapter 54 for BF. 

      I was not aware of the spoiler overlay and I do apologize for not consulting the Wiki Activity log. I believed I would have received a notification when something I contributed was changed and that is on me for not asking about it sooner. I will definitely consult it in the future.

      It's a New Year, yet more old habits I have to learn to break.

    • Alright, I have lifted your block now. Just so it's left clear, I'm going to make a quick list of the points posted in this wall since your last response:

      1. No contractions.
      2. Paragraphs of ~10 lines.
      3. Check Special:WikiActivity regularly (preferably bookmark it).
      4. {{Spoiler overlay}} goes in a new line.
      5. Only upload images that are going to be used in articles.
      6. Pay attention to the messages in your wall.

      Hopefully with this there are no more issues.

      Thank you for your contributions, by the way. Your dedication and efforts are appreciated regardless of these areas of improvement, 👍

  • Just a friendly reminder, the Spoiler Overlay template is preferred to be added in a new line, just as we do it with any of the other templates.

  • Hello Winston4278, 

    I noticed you have uploaded several Junior High Manga images on this wiki. While I have no doubt they can be used, I would like to remind you that they must have a purpose and be used in articles, as said in our image policy. Only upload images that you are going to use (in articles, blogs, comments or forum)

    If you want to keep them, please do not forget to add them in articles. I had already adressed it in Rod's Reiss (Anime)/Image Gallery (see the history of the said page) and since it happened again I allowed myself to point you this.

    As you were told, your contributions are welcomed, but please take some time to read our policies and take a look at the others' edits in the recent activity, it'll be helpful for everyone.

    Greetings, Dal

  • Hi,

    You answered my topic about Before the Fall (thank you for that!) and said you could try to answer my questions. Well now after I have read some of your texts about BtF I have only one thing worrying me before I want to invest money on the series, otherwise everything seems good! =D 1. Does it have mentionably romantic relationships or does it focus on relationships more or less than main series?

    I don’t like when series focus too much on romantic relationships and main series have had reasonable balance so far I have read it, so what do you say about it after reading both?

    Thank you so much for your time already!

    • Hello!

      In regards to your question, I think it's about the same between both series. Since Hajime Isayama doesn't have as big a part in making 'Before the Fall' as the regular series (to my knowledge), it is more open to the possibility of relationships forming. I can sense that Sharle definitely feels that way towards Kuklo, but there has been no indication from him that he feels the same for her; it's more along the lines of a family bond, since she was the first person who truly took care of him. It could very well change at some point but so far, Before the Fall stays away from romantic attachments just like Attack on Titan does.

      I know that most everyone has their ships with different characters (myself included), but it doesn't fit in with the structure or narrative of a series like AoT.

      I hope this helps!

    • Thank you so much for this very comprehensive answer! This really helped and of course there is always possibility that things change along series, but it was important to know how it has been this far. I think I can finally buy more volumes of this since it has seemed very great and interesting series, but something had given me the idea this might be now the series which focus more on relationships to attract other kind of readers.

      Thank you once more!

  • I'm glad you are writing the Before the Fall pages, it's been bugging me how hollow that section is and I'm far too lazy to do anything about it 

      Loading editor
    • No problem! Keeps me busy while waiting for the main series every month :P

      As I work on the character pages, I'm finding a few of them in Before the Fall are actually more engaging and likeable than some of the characters in the main storyline (blasphemous, I know.) Perhaps it's due to how much he's changed during the timeskip but I'm slowly beginning to lose interest in Eren and prefering Kuklo as my favorite protagonist. Since he now has three Titan abilities, Eren's become a bit overpowered and there's a sense that he will more likely be victorious in fights now (which could take some of the suspense and intrigue out of it; we will ultimately have to wait and see). Kuklo, on the other hand, can still be injured or killed in a fight with humans or Titans. Since he is still human, it draws you in more (at least for me) and makes you actively wonder if he will survive to see another day.

  • Hello. Just in case you didn't notice it, we had to take care of the file information of the images you uploaded. Please take a look at our corrections and try to add it yourself in the future.

    Once again, all you need to do is copy/paste the file information and fill it like the following: https://imgur.com/a/y4D0w (Since you're working on Before the Fall you may replace the "m" on the source line by "bf")

    By the way, you can do it directly when you upload an image in the "caption" space. Feel free to ask for more details. Hope this will help.

    • Where do you go to add that info? I went to try it when I uploaded "Eren assaults Hange". I looked at a few others and I was not seeing anything different in the editor; I went to the file to look again and saw it was just filled in.

    • If you go back to Dalmatia's original post and click on the image link, you can see on the right side of the image there a space called "Categories" with Willy's name partially spelled out as "Will." Underneath that, the field has auto-populated to say "Images of Willy Tybur." That is where you add the character categories.

      Just start typing in "Images of [insert character name]" and the field should auto-populate so you can just click on the one you want (don't forget continuity in cases like Mikasa who can have a manga/anime/Lost Girls appearance). If a character name doesn't auto-populate they either are very new or you spelled it wrong.

  • Hi Winston,

    Event pages like the Battle of Liberio are written a little differently from regular wiki pages. Unlike the Story sections of other pages, they're written in past tense and they're intended to be a high level overview of the event and the movements of the people involved.

    I noticed you wove in and out of past tense, probably because you're used to using present tense on other pages, but you were subconsciously aware that the rest of the page was in past tense. This is something to be aware of, but only applies to this particular page type.

    Also, just in general (because I can see myself doing this edit when I go home tonight) you've used the word "blimp" multiple times in edits so far, sometimes even changing the word "airship" to "blimp" when it appears on other pages. The official translation uses "airship" (and never "blimp") so please keep the terminology consistent with the manga.

      Loading editor
    • Thanks for the info! That was the first time I edited a page like that; now I know what to do for next time.

      In regards to "Airship v. Blimp", that's totally on me; I used "airship" originally but saw "blimp" being used more often by some other editors, so I figured that was the correct term in-universe.

        Loading editor
    • No problem. I think most of the blimps have been turned to or back to airship by this point.

  • Hi, I'd like to call your attention to a bunch of edits you've been making. I've noticed numerous instances where you have been changing [Titan]s (which is our preferred way of setting up the links) to [Titan|Titans].

    I don't have the bandwidth right now to revert your changes (perhaps later tonight), but going forward, please refrain from doing that. The "s" in [Titan]s will automatically be converted into part of the link. There's no need to do the longer [Titan|Titans].

      Loading editor
    • I'd also like to mention that you've been using contractions like "he's" instead of "he is", and single quotes instead of double quotes; all of which we've been fixing on spot since they don't follow the guidelines of our Manual of Style, but it seems you're not seeing our edits because you continue editing this way just after our fixes.

      We appreciate your interest and effort in editing the wiki, but if these edits are not according to the guidelines we need to be fixing them and that takes much work from us. This is not the first time we ask you to read the manual (I see other posts on your wall about uploading images with bad file names and without adding file information, which you've continued doing), but I have to reiterate: please read it, pay attention to our edits on Special:WikiActivity, and make sure that your edits follow the guidelines; it'll save much trouble for everybody and prevent further issues.

        Loading editor
    • Alright. Thanks for bringing this to my attention; I will try to be more observant when I post so it doesn't take more time to go back and fix!

      The main thing with the Titan/Titans is when I'm editing and see 'Titan' highlighted and not the 's' as well, my brain automatically thinks that it wasn't included in the link.

        Loading editor
    • Just another reminder to avoid contractions like "can't", "couldn't", "doesn't", etc. These two pages (and probably many others) have a lot of them, would you mind replacing them with the full forms ("cannot", "could not", "does not", etc) and do the same with other pages you've written?

  • Hey, I'd like to discuss a few things about the images you upload. First, reminder of our image policy, images need a file information you can find on the page I linked and copy/paste and fill, once again, all the instructions are there.

    Before uploading images, please give them a proper name. We don't ask shakespearian sentences but, for instance, "Sasha Connie Liberio" is not good, make a short description rather than key-words. Here are a few good examples among the latest images additions:


    And last, if you already don't do that, I'd advise you to take a look at Recent Wiki Activity to see how the others edit, that's super effective I swear. :)

    Feel free to ask if you have any doubts and happy editing.

    • By "file info format" I meant the one in the Image Policy's File Information and Licensing section.


      It's copied and pasted then filled so it appears like this in Source mode: https://imgur.com/a/y4D0w

      "m" stands for "manga" and "100" is the number of the chapter the image is from, then don't forget to add categories of whoever appears in the image, like shown in the screenshot.
