Awesome! Just signed up, I'll be psyched as soon as I'm done with work next week. I'll be able to make the odd contribution until then, though, I'm sure.

So, should this be the "discussing the Wiki" thread, or will we do that on the Wiki itself...?

Stuff like "do we title Shiryu's page 'Shiryu' or 'Dragon Shiryu'?", "do we put Kanon in the list of Saints or Mariners? (both!)", "what translations of the Evil Stars shall we use?" and all that...

Well, you can discuss Wiki stuff here, too - then you'd have input from the non-wiki folks, too

Sure, that'd be best.

Well, first I'd like to suggest character pages are headed with only the character's actual name; Seiya, Kanon, Saori Kido, Tatsumi Tokumaru, etc. Because there's such a thing as Pegasus and Sagittarius Seiya; Sea Dragon and Gemini Kanon, and so on. This is in contrast to Wikipedia, who (the last time I checked), described characters as "Pegasus Seiya", "Dragon Shiryu", and so on, which aside from being sometimes inaccurate, implies that Saints with no official constellations, like Dokrates, are less than real Saints. It's also kind of a misnomer, because Shiryu can be "Dragon no Shiryu" or "Libra no Shiryu" in the original Japanese, but he's aaalways Shiryu. The various titles and Cloths borne by the various characters can just be detailed within their profiles themselves.

Oh, and I'd suggest Kanon have a link in the Saints *and* Mariners, as he's officially been both. =3

Apologies for the academic language, I've been doing a lot of formal, sometimes argumentative work this week and I guess it's not out of my system. >_< Looking forward to getting silly again!

Sure we can go by the normal names, makes some sense to me ^_^

Heck to be precise, Seiya's full name is Seiya Kido, as is the same with the other bronzies :D


I also think we should do a seperate article for the manga and anime, because reciting the differences over and over again is just boring :P

Agreeed! Heh, that's some of the stuff I'll come to the Wiki to read for myself; there's a couple of manga-only events I have only the vaguest memories of from when I read them, and they've plagued me to no end. Misty, Babel, and maybe Moses killing the Dark Saints while Mu was disguising them as the Bronzies, or SOMETHING, for one thing. =/ Yes. My long-term memory isn't always that great. >_>

What about the Greek names? Latinate or hard Greek pronunciation (Cassios / Kassios, Docrates / Dokrates)? The latter is more accurate, but most people seem to use the former. Kinda like Aioros / Aiolos, but let's not get into THAT one yet. =p

Looks as it had to be set in LocaleSetting.php. I set the variable to "enable". Hopefully it works now.

Thanks Shaina, uploads are working fine now! Put a profile pic on Seiya's page, just as a test (not correctly formatted or resized), let me know what you think of it, folks!

 :seiya: ...Is that really appropriate?
