First I assume you aren't done revising it, but I want to bring up the various issues that exist in the current version of the draft.
The character's official name should always be the title of the article.
The same goes for chapter, episode and volume titles. The literal translation of the Japanese should be the title and the English name should serve as a redirect.
My first issue: The wording of the policy quoted above suggests that all English names are not official, but ReLIFE does has official localization in English up to Vol 7.
Second, the policy quoted above would also mean that Report 1 should be renamed either to [[Report 1. Arata Kaizaki (27), Unemployed]] (the literal translation of the Japanese name equals the English name) or just [[Arata Kaizaki (27), Unemployed]], depending on whether we consider "Reprt 1." to be part of the name. While I personally don't care if it gets renamed, somehow I get the feeling that is not what you intended.
Also, the policy as currently written does not elaborate on what happens if a chapter title and an episode title (and/or a volume title) are identical. We have previously discussed this, and the current draft of the policy contradicts (or at least does not represent) what you said last time.
Another bullet point in the policy explicitly mentioned macrons as an example, so I feel I should also bring up that topic again.
Take 大神和臣 as an example:
Official "Japanese English" spelling = Kazuomi Ohga
Official "American English" localization = Kazuomi Oga
Standard romanization of the Japanese name = Kazuomi Ōga
The version with the macron is, ironically, the only non-official way to spell the name.
For 夜明了, we get:
Official "Japanese English" spelling = Ryo Yoake
Official "American English" localization = Ryo Yoake
Standard romanization of the Japanese name = Ryō Yoake
We can go with macrons if you really want to. I can appreciate it from an academic perspective, but that would require us to not follow the "The character's official name should always be the title of the article" policy. A possibly way to word that policy would be:
The standard romanization of the character's official Japanese name should always be the title of the article.
The same goes for names of location and institutions
For example, the capital of Japan would be Tōkyō, not Tokyo nor Toukyou.
Some additional clarifications would still need to be added to the above wording assuming we want to use "Aoba High School" instead of "Aoba Kōtō Gakkō" as the article name of the school...
On the other hand, if you want to stay with official names, we still need to pick a side between Official Japanese English spelling versus Official American English localization spelling.
I'm fine whatever you decide on the policy, as long as the resulting policy does not contradict itself.
I don't really care personally if you want the policy to go British and add /u/'s or stay American... It is also possible to go the Wikipedia option in this case: either variant is acceptable but try to stay consistent within one article (See: wikipedia:MOS:ENGVAR).
But if you make the rules and after that you make edits that do the opposite of what your rules say, it gets confusing.
Instead of only giving the DOM elements one class "relife-tablet-blue" or "relife-tablet-blue", you can do two classes at once: "relife-tablet relife-tablet-blue" or "relife-tablet relife-tablet-green".
Then in the css file, ".relife-tablet" can contain all the style rules that are common across all colors (and uses a default color), while "relife-tablet-blue" and "relife-tablet-green" only contain color-specific rules that override the default color.
This allows you to easily maintain lots of different colors of the same basic style. As an example of this idea put into actual use, see the bottom of MediaWiki:Common/PortableInfobox.css where I gave override colors for bonus-report and episodeinfo.
If the title images can be the same dimensions (or aspect ratio) as the thumbnails, then when switching between tabs on the infobox, the infobox won't grow/shrink. Not like we lose anything by trimming out whitespaces from the top/bottom right?
since we are on the subject of thumbnails(?), what are your thoughts/plans for the images on Episode pages (including any standardized naming scheme)? I noticed a number of the episode pages used to have images which you deleted, leaving red links on the old version of the template.
Regarding that, I uploaded a GIF image, which compiles the screenshot from here for each anime episodic pages. The reasons why it was deleted are: (1) GIF adds a lot of noise (unnecessary pixels) to the images, (2) The transitioning of the images in GIF can be a little bit distracting in the Category:Anime Episodes. A substitute for this is to upload those 5 JPG-format images per episode instead. If necessary, we can just add other screenshots as well.
I suggest a file naming scheme of Episode X-Y where X is the 2-digit zero-padded episode number and Y is the 2-digit zero-padded upload order. For example, the fifth screenshot for Episode 1 would be named Episode 01-05.jpg. If you have other suggestions, feel free to tell it.
Good recommendation. But in the future uploads, that will only limit us with 26 images though (if we keep using the single letters as counters). I have no problems with it as long as we're strict with the number of screenshot uploads.
1. After we hit z if we want more images we can add a second letter (-:
2. a~e are for official preview screenshots. For other screenshots the file name should be more descriptive of what the image is about (which would result in longer file names), so "Episode 01-(human-readable-short-description).
Option 2 would be my personal preference (I should be able to have a reasonable expectation of what the image contains from just reading the image name), but it's not that big a deal and I'll go with whatever you decide.
The problems I have with the "human-readable-short-description" are (1) that it should be objectively written (for which we don't have a guideline yet) and (2) it is harder to recall these images in gallery or other necessary pages.
For the first argument, for example, we have this scene where Kaizaki meets up with Chizuru on her seat; do we, perhaps, name it as
Episode 01 - Arata awkwardly meeting up Chizuru for the first time, or
Episode 01 - Chizuru meets up Arata, who is seating on her official seat, or
Episode 01 - Arata and Chizuru at Class 3-2, meeting up for the first time.?
There are a lot of possibilities that would arise from this so it would probably be unmanageable when the time comes.
For the second argument, option 1 allows us to easily enumerate all uploaded episodic images without a hitch unlike the option 2 which we further need to deeply search in Special:AllFiles and repopulate them one-by-one.
Hmm, btw, if it makes sense to just do "File:Thumbnail 203.jpg", then "Report 204 Title (JP).jpg" can also just be "Title 204.jpg", where JP is omitted because it is the original; and "Report 204 Title (EN).jpg" can just be "Title 204 (EN).jpg"
also btw, have you looked at the V2 report infobox yet? I tried to make it look as close to the original as possible. One notable difference is captions cannot be displayed in the new system (or rather, the portable infobox system takes the provided captions and use it as the tab label).
The benefit is V2 looks way nicer on the phone than V1 (on the phone, different tabber tabs are all displayed at the same time one after the other, whereas with the Portable Infobox they form a slidable gallery)
If you are ok with V2, I'll work on replacing the existing Report infobox with V2.
Another question: the Japanese report title images you upload have the words "Original Story & Art by Yayoi Sou", but the webcomics from Comico do not have those words. I noticed you had deleted older versions that didn't have the words and uploaded new versions with the words.
That was a bit confusing to me, especially since in another thread you mentioned deleting some end panel images that had words added by fan translations or something. Are the title images with "Original Story & Art by Yayoi Sou" from a different official source?
I think, that only applies if the generic border color is not specified in the first place. I'm no expert in CSS but I know that using !important is the easiest way to ensure that it's the style that you want. Please tweak it if you may, as you see fit.
Sometimes a style that is recently added might not seem to work, simply because the old style was still being cached.
If there is a rule that didn't use !important, and you can only figure out how to override it with !important, then if that rule becomes !important, you will have no way to override it even with your own !important. And if one person starts to use !important by default, and other people start to need to use !important to override other !important, then we run into a proliferation of !important when you won't be able to override lots of rules even with your own !important.
Currently it's slightly inconsistent, so I want to start with one rule:
Where the article is a member of a type, and there is a category for that type, then its category name should be written in plural form. Example: Kaizaki is a earthling, and if we make a category to keep track of earthlings, it should be named Category:Earthlings (plural) instead of Category:Earthling (singular).
I don't actually have a strong preference whether it goes plural or singular, I just want something consistent.
Not all categorization describe a type-membership relationship, so this rule wouldn't matter to some categories. For example, there could be a category named Category:Aoba Highschool, and it wouldn't be plural, because that category doesn't contain different Aoba Highschools inside (it is more of an abbreviation of "Articles related to Aoba Highschool")
Blah, I forgot to mention I wanted to get your OK on this before going all out acting on it. If you would rather want singular instead of plural (eg, Category:Earthling as opposed to Category:Earthlings) I'm fine with that too, my primary consideration is consistency.
Um, by proper capitalization, do you want title case (Category:Solar System Planets) or normal case (Category:Solar system planets)? Wikipedia uses normal case, in this situation I really don't care one way or the other, and I know some wikis that prefer title case.
Actually, on the second thought, we could apply the normal case too at long category titles such as "Articles that appear in ReLIFE (Movie)", "Articles with major spoilers", and "Articles without proper referencing".
The version of MediaWiki:Licenses you added had most of the drop down options pointing to templates that do not exist on this wiki, so I deleted your entire thing (in order to revert to the default), saved the default, and then ported in the fair use options.
If you care about the other dropdown options you had in there, let's make sure what we do to port them actually works.
on a similar note, in case you haven't noticed, a few days ago I nuked a bunch of stuff you added to MediaWiki:Wiki-navigation, because they all pointed to non-existent pages. I've copy-pasted the broken links you added over to Community Portal#Under Construction so that you can fill them in and once filled in we can put them back into the navigation.
