Categorize it

Would be good to make an extra category, where you can put all your Animepedia:... articles. Keeps them nice and together ^^

Just didn't wanna open up a new one myself.

Thanks, ~HKK

Concerning 'Avatar'

Yes I know Avatar looks like anime, but should that really classify it as anime? I'm not trying to complain, but most people, like myself, would not classify Avatar, Totally Spies, etc. as anime just because they look like anime. People are able to draw and learn from all over the world. I'm probably talking nothing but nonsense. You can ask other people what they think I suppose. -Crystalbear 19:24, 14 October 2007 (EDT)

That's the whole thing. Looking like an anime. Anime is an all-encompassing term for animation in Japan. In the west, we primarily use it to describe cartoons which are based off of "manga", a comic book using a drawing style referred to as "manga". Anime is simply, by it's most common usage in western language, animation of the manga art style. If it succeeds in fitting to the "manga" style traits, it is anime. Anime does not refer to something that is strictly from Japan, hence why the term "Japanimation" went out of common use in the 70s and 80s. That would be like saying that a modern painting in the Baroque style is not a Baroque painting because it isn't from 17th century France. Avatar succeeds in following the anime traits, more so than other American attempts have, such as Teen Titans or Totally Spies. - Xero XIII 23:28, 14 October 2007 (EDT)

Okay, okay. Fine. By the way, I have another question, below. -Crystalbear 01:18, 15 October 2007 (EDT)

Disambiguation pages

I was thinking, if Animepedia should have disambiguation pages. This would be helpful in finding certain articles faster. Such as if an anime had a title, that was also the exact name of a character. Examples of articles that may need disambiguation pages, would be the Tenchi Muyo! articles. I would like to see each Tenchi Muyo manga and anime to try to have their own seperate articles, that is if there is enough information for an article. It's quite possible to make disambiguation pages without the... say... "Tenchi Muyo! (Disambiguation)" title. It could actually just be a normal article that links to other articles, but made to look like a disambiguation page. Believe me, I saw this done on other very popular wikipedias. Plus it makes things look professional. What is your thoughts on it? -Crystalbear 01:18, 15 October 2007 (EDT)

For this, there are several ways to go about it. I'll use Naruto as an example. The actual article "Naruto" will link to the article for the series. At the top of the page will be a redirect link for people looking for the character Naruto, which will be under the article type "Uzumaki Naruto". As for character's like Tenchi Muyo, the same idea is used, the series article being "Tenchi Muyo", with the redirecting link at the top of the page to "Tenchi Muyo (character)". Tenchi Muyo, and Tenchi Muyo, for example, though a redirecting link is not yet in the series article. I will go ahead and add that now. - Xero XIII 13:25, 15 October 2007 (EDT)

On that note, I think we should make a standard template for that purpose, both to make it easier, and to ensure consistency. I'll see if I can come up with something to start with, and then we can modify it as needed. Regex 16:51, 15 October 2007 (EDT)

So basically the idea of disambiguation pages are accepted? Thank you for taking my suggestion into consideration, it'll help a lot of people out. And yes, I also think there should be a template. -Crystalbear 19:48, 15 October 2007 (EDT)

Concering the Video Game articles

It appears that some video game articles are allowed on Animepedia. I'm more than willing to make some, but there is no guidelines at all. I'm guessing only the video games that look like anime, or based on anime are accepted to be made into articles on Animepedia. Although I'm not all that sure. Are we also allowed to make character articles for characters who appeared in video games? -Crystalbear 17:22, 19 October 2007 (EDT)

I don't want to make super strict guidelines on these things, so I say go for it. In general, it would be nice if the games had been adapted into anime and/or manga at some point, but I'm not about to outlaw any of them. -Regex 01:59, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

Oh okay that's good. It looks like I can make a Harvest Moon video game article, it was once adapted into manga. Well thanks for the reply. -Crystalbear 16:58, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

A little thanks --HKK

Haha, i see you guys seem to have at least a little accepted this idea of mine here. Thanks a lot for that ^^ -HKK 07:58, 5 April 2008 (EDT)
