Ok, this used to be the "list of character articles to be improved" page, but I have a lot of thoughts about further steps other editors and I can take to improve this wiki as a whole. I'll be posting lists of things to work on, as well as topics for discussion. Please leave any thoughts you have in the comments.
Attracting More Contributors
This should be obvious. There's a lot of work to do (just look at the current community message), but it can't be fully completed by the handful of active editors (including me) currently on this wiki.
- Post an advertisement on the Shakugan no Shana section of the animesuki forums.
- Create a Facebook page just in case.
- Become affiliates with other anime wikis (especially those for series similar to Shakugan no Shana).
Japanese vs. English Terms
We need input from more people on whether to use English names (such as Crimson Denizen and Treasure Tool) or Japanese names (such as Seireiden and Shintetsu Nyoi) for terms. This wiki currently uses English for major terms like "Denizens", while there are plenty of Treasure Tool and Unrestricted Spell pages that use the Japanese name. What do you think?
- Use Japanese names for Unrestricted Spells and Treasure Tools (unless the name is something that's clearly not supposed to be Japanese, like Blutsauger).
- Use official or fan-agreed English names if possible.
I wanted to put this at the very end but it would look weird after the long character list. This is, after all, the ultimate goal of any wiki. If we want this wiki to be THE best and most comprehensive online, English-language database on the Shakugan no Shana series, then it needs to cover every single bit of information related to the franchise that can be found.
Articles This Wiki Needs More Of
- General terms, like Dantalion's inventions and any jargon that might have been missed.
- Treasure Tools and Unrestricted Spells that don't already have their own pages.
- Locations that don't exist in real life.
- There's an article for Rie Kugimiya, but none for the other prominent voice actors.
- Also, if any information about anime staff members can be found, it wouldn't hurt to add it to the wiki.
- Character image songs from the Drama CD/albums.
