As we move forward we plan to have wiki videos in many communities, with Gorillaz wiki being a candidate for videos. If you are interested in which video types we might use you can find some great examples in this blog post. We are working on several ways to involve users in the video creation and script writing process. If we start producing videos we may reach out to you, other admins, and users if we think you can be involved in the production. At that point we will provide further information.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Springteufel (talk) 15:57, May 31, 2017 (UTC)
The theme song is DEFINITELY catchy. My personal favorite song though is "Disco Prince" c:
In terms of the Katamari games, I only recognize the first two and Katamari Forever because it was more of a "best of" compilation. I love Keita Takahashi's work but, outside of those first two, you can definitely see the difference in comparison to after he left. I felt like the King's loading monologues during that "last level" where you eventually roll up continents was actual Takahashi's inner thoughts about stepping away from Katamari.
Sorry for nerding out. I just REALLY love the first two games~
As for the videos, I will look into it when I get a chance. I recently had a family emergency with one of my relatives so I'm taking some time to focus on my family. I won't go too much into detail besides that. I hope you understand ^^'
It is really hard to say which of the Katamari songs is my favorite because they have all a different mood that matches perfectly stage you are playing. I think the one I have to sing along always is Cherry blossom color season (especially fanfare version from Katamari forever). And please no excuses for nerding out :D I am also a huge fan!
No need to hurry about the wiki videos. We don't have concrete video creation plans for the Gorillaz wiki yet and possibly we won't create any in the near future. But I wanted to let you know about the possibility since the community has many very interesting and high traffic pages. Of course take your time for every personal issues and please reach out to me in case you have questions about wiki videos or related topics. Thanks! Springteufel (talk) 09:46, June 7, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the understanding.
Cherry Blossom Color Season is a great song too. I like the version from the first game because it has a strange nostalgic feel to it.
As for the family emergency, it was a death in the family. So I'm taking this week to just decompress from the situation.
Video integration in discussions would be great.
Also, there really should be a way for the site to archive videos that are imported via youtube links because there's been countless times that videos have went missing because the original source deleted them from their actual channels.
I have video files but, I can't even upload though .3.
That's normal. As long as they fully display when you click on them, they're fix. Making the thumbnail orientations vary depending on how the actual images are would make the gallery look like a broken jigsaw puzzle. Don't worry it's fine ^^
Hey there RadicalEdward2, my name's Ryan and I'm a member of the Community Development team here at Fandom. Also a big Gorillaz fan :)
Since there's a new album coming out at the end of April and there's likely going to be an uptick in traffic to your wiki, I wanted to get your input on a few things. Specifically, I'd like ask whether you'd be open to enabling our Discussions feature and if you'd be interested in a getting a community app for the wiki?
Discussions is a desktop and mobile conversation board that is also tied to community apps. It's similar to the forums, but it's also mobile-friendly, which means users can check out your community wherever they are. Users are able to post links, images and videos, upvote posts they like or report posts that may be inappropriate. It's been very successful on several communities this past year. I'd recommend checking out the Elder Scrolls or Fallout communities for an idea of what they look like and what kind of interactions they can get. If you have any other questions, definitely let me know and also feel free to take a look at the Discussions Help Page on Community Central.
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and run those ideas by you. Let me know if you think this is something you'd be interested in for the community. Thanks!
I'm worried about the future of this Wiki because of Xenomorph's sudden retirement. I seem to be the only editor who puts in regular checkups on here. We need more editors, ones that actually know what they're doing. I come to you because you seem to be the highest ranked around here. Please, tell me how I can help.
Well, prior to his resignation, I was trying to look for more people to add to the site's staff while also balancing out maintaining real-life stuff (finding a job). If you still have my email, we can discuss adding you to the admin team (as Xeno and I were already talking about that prior to his resignation).
I know he's on board for having you as an admin. I just need to you to email me so we could discuss admin duties. The more help we could get, the better. We need a team if we're going to keep this site running (:
We need to have an admin and mod meeting. What time and day will be good for you? I am okay with anytime you, Crackedtalon, and Jackbilly choose. It's about a number of things that have been on my mind.
