  • Hey, I'm curious why you deleted the pages for Sphinxman and Kintaman (possibly others?). If the pages need more details, I can punch them up a bit. Think you can reinstate those pages?

    • 2) To be honest, I'm not quite sure I understand this one, so I might need it rewording ^_^() I have a feeling that creating pages/redirects for every character will be a¬†huge¬†undertaking, though, even with dividing up the work, so it¬†might¬†be more practical to find a simpler solution (if one exists).¬†

      What I meant was creating redirect pages for EVERY character and then simply labeling those pages with Tags like "Kinnikuman characters" and "Kinnikuman Nisei characters". That way a master list of characters for both would be formed as a Category page rather than as a traditional article. But like you said, that's a crazy, and probably unnecessary undertaking. I like your solution better.

      That's not a bad idea. Just include the "Main" characters (meaning characters with their own pages) and at the top, the lede could include a link to the MInor Character page too.

      Awesome. I'll get on that now, then.

  • Just wondering why¬†you want the Voice actor pages deleted?

    • Please See: Rules: Notability.

      In short, we made a decision as an administrative team.

      We have wanted - ever since we came to this wiki - to make it an encyclopaedic wiki, which has extensive and informative articles on topics relevant and unique to the series. This was impossible for us at the time, due to a disagreement on policy with the previous administrator. Now that matters have been resolved, we have implemented this policy in line with other wikis. 

      A secondary issue is that VA pages are virtually impossible to keep updated, and they are extensively documented already on the Seiyuu Wiki, IMDB, Wikipedia and other sources. They are not unique to Kinnikuman, difficult to keep updated, and distract from the wiki's purpose. 

      I hope this clarifies matters

      Thank you for coming to us with your concerns, too.

      if that's an issue then why not add link to the voice actor's wiki pages on wikipedia, IMDB or the Seiyuu wiki on the character infoboxes.

    • No worries.

      I was just uncomfortable with the "banter". There were a lot of times you would start conversations with middle finger emojis, calling me "wanker", or randomly seeming to insult me. I also wasn't sure how to take stuff like you randomly addressing me by my old username, that would have taken some digging, or me saying I disliked zoomer talk in the main server (like "oof" in specific), so starting a conversation with that exact word and screenshotting the server convo at me.

      I understand it was probably in jest, or just sort of banter between lads or whatnot, and maybe I should have been forward instead of just defriending, but I also struggle with that kind of social interaction at the best of times. It's hard to tell whether it's meant to be joking with me or at me, innocent or malicious.

      I'll sort it out a bit later on Discord, as I can't use the site on mobile, but you're owed an explanation and I don't think you're a bad person at all, and I very much always have appreciated your passion and honesty. I'm just often left uncertain as to how some behaviours are meant to be perceived, thus how to best react.

  • Big Ramenman fan here living in Tokyo since the time Kinnikuman was nearing the end of its TV run and its first spinoff, Ramenman, started its TV run. Man it was a HUGE deal over here when the manga came out where Kinnikuman was taking his mask off. Bought that one. Thanks for doing what you do up in here, see you around the chats!

    • Thank you so much for your kindness¬†:)

      It's always great to meet a fellow fan, and also a fan of the wikia, too! Neon Alkaid and I have spent this year trying to get it looking its best, as well as to update as many articles as possible, and it means the world that you're enjoying the wikia, as it means it was time well spent. Thank you :)

      I think - unfortunately - we do need to properly update the articles for the "Ramenman" spin-off, which is a shame as it looks a truly awesome series (both manga and anime)! If you wanted to edit those pages - or any others - you're always more than welcome to join the community, and both Neon Alkaid and I will be happy to help you however we can, too. We're always here to answer questions or help in any way that we can :)

      Thank you again, and wishing you the best!

      We hope you enjoy your stay on the wikia.

  • Finally did some work on the voice actor pages, for now just fleshing out the notable credits in their infoboxes. Someone here is a huge Transformers fan, and maybe that same person is a huge Saint Seiya fan. I don't know the Transformer anime stuff well enough to know if any of those are major roles, but I do know Saint Seiya well enough to know which ones weren't. I've noticed there's not a very consistent layout to the pages, so I wonder if you'd mind if I just use the layout I use on the WiKitaro?

  • I edit your meltdown because you used the wrong image for the meltdown, that's Max Radical not Meltdown.

    • Ah, thank you!

      The designs look so similar that I must have been mistaken; I'll look for a proper Meltdown image tonight, as well as format Max Radial (as he appears to be missing an info box on a glance). I very much appreciate you catching the mistake and letting me know ūüôā

      I have Part One, first printings, as a full set in English. 

      I have Part Two, second-hand, as a full set in Japanese. 

      It's just a case of taking photographs with the flash for a clear image, then uploading them. I do sometimes cheat with Part Two, though; up until chapter 44 is fan-translated, which makes it easier to search and find specific parts, and after that I have the RAWs on PC, which also can be a little easier than flicking through the physical books. The books lack the furigana, and my kanji knowledge isn't great, so having the English makes it a lot easier for speed alone.

      How about you make scans from the English Ultimate Muscle Manga books you have and donate them to Kissmanga please?

      Unfortunately, that isn't really possible. 

      The books are 220 pages each, and it takes about a full minute to scan two pages. This means it's about 1.5 hours just to scan one book, and that's not including uploading times to those sites, when I'm in an area that lacks a good Internet speed. I'm currently spending my time working on the Wiki and writing new fanfictions for AO3, which is my way of contributing to the fandom, and both of those are time-consuming in themselves due to the heavy load of writing involved.

      That being said, I can recommend Tumblr user "sirenianheart"; they have volumes 6 to 14 available to download here: Link to Tumblr  - as they say, scans of volumes 1 to 5 tend to be widely available already on various manga-reading sites. They also give permission for anyone to upload their scans to any site, if you wish to do that for other users. 

      I hope this helps, and good luck in your search :)

  • I don't have it anymore, so editing images is difficult for me. There are new images from an upcoming book up on Amazon that would be good to put up on the wiki. https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/4054066062/ evan1975 (talk) 18:44, March 20, 2019 (UTC)

      By the way RobinKnight your messing up the images with your edits like Images in Akuma Shogun's page are in the wrong places now.

      The issue is the amount of text on those pages. 

      On pages like say "Kevin Mask", there is substantial text, and I can often match images to the appropriate places. When Chloe saves Kevin -? An image can go there. It's filled with story and trivia and so forth to make this easy without readability being affected. 

      On "Akuma Shogun", there's just five paragraphs (with a liberal definition of paragraph). Everything else is techniques and career information. The images - if we place them strictly according to appropriate places in the timeline or story - make the page completely unreadable and all mingle together in one giant clump, so I had to spread them out. 

      You're more than welcome to move them about, so it's both a readable article and the images are also in the right places, and it'd also be incredibly helpful, as I've still some new images to upload and sections to finish off on Kevin Mask and Warsman (along various other work to be done on the wiki). If you do decide to make edits to the images, thanks in advance :)

      Otherwise, I can only really wait until more text is added ^_^()

      By the way again.you made another page Jack Faucet even though already one for him

      (Jack Faucet)

      (Jak Chi)

      Thank you for letting me know. 

      This is why we use Japanese names on the wiki, as the original was impossible to find. I'm not even sure why it was titled with "Faucet", as I can't find any official translation with that name, and his official name is "Jak Chi" (even in Romaji). The fans all call him "Jak Tea", for some reason, so I genuinely can't fathom why anyone titled it as such (and I'd have never have found it, as it doesn't even have any redirects attached). 

      I'll update the new page, as it's the one with the info-box, and delete the former. I'll also add redirects for "Jak Tea" to the new page, too . . . if anyone can explain where Jak Faucet came from, providing it's a legit source or a common fan-name, I'll redirect with that, too. 

      Thank you again, and apologies for the error. 

      Edit: The page only has five hits; I suspect all those hits are us, as I clicked it several times in checking things out . . . I suspect it was hard to find for the very reason of naming, seeing as he has some traction in terms of interest on the forums and other places ^_^()
