Welcome

Welcome to the Gantz wikia. Never hesitate to say what's on your mind. Please discuss any massive changes before you do them, and never try to delete an article just because its short or you don't like it. Dream Focus 20:05, March 11, 2013 (UTC)

Improvements and the like

Hey dream, Im Salubri im a admin over at the bleach wiki. There is a few of us there that are fans of Gantz. I myself have read through it to the current chapter within the span of 2 days. I was looking around the wiki and what not and was wondering if you needed some serious overhauling help. I know you have done most of the content and what not, I was just wondering if you wanted to take it to the next level. I commonly deal in referencing material, template creation and the like come over to bleach wiki and you can see for yourself the kind of work that i do. The majority of templates are my creation and can be used here as well. Creating a background theme and all that can be done eventually too. The layouts and what not can also be greatly organized as well. Let me know if your interested.-- SalubriSalubri (Chat) 17:43,4/20/2013 

Adding references to what chapters thing were revealed in may be useful to some I suppose. If you want to do that fine. People just edit as they see fit, and its fine, as long as they aren't destroying other people's work or adding in empty sections into dozens of articles that will never be filled. Had a lot more editors around in years past than recently. The series is coming to a close now, so I don't know how many new articles can be created, people having made them for about everything imaginable already. If you see something that needs to be done, and feel like doing it, just go for it. By background theme, you mean the background image? If you want to change that, show me the new one you are suggesting changing it to first. Dream Focus 19:08, April 20, 2013 (UTC)

ok and what about the templates and layout or do u want me to just show you on a character page.--Salubri

Hey! 

I was looking at the main page and its a bit messy. Would you like me to help you out with it? 

XGlass Reflection (talk) 18:19, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

You can make a replacement page you think shows all the information but in a nicer format if you want. Then link to it once you are done. User talk:XGlass Reflection/main Dream Focus 18:52, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

Adminship

Hi there, its been a while since I have been fully active here I know. You do remember me don't you. But to get to the point now, now that the series has ended I intend to become very active here again. To be precise I am going to be making an chapter page a day. Not only will a make a full complete chapter page, I will also update all pages related to it. And make new character pages if need be. Check out my recent edits to see how I work. However there is one other thing I want to do while working on the chapters and that is update everything that can, to do this however I need admin rights. Which prompts me the question , could you please make me an admin, it would really help me out in helping this wikia out. You have been the lone admin for this wiki a very long time. Let me help you. My edits and dedication to this wikia should speak for themselves. So please make me an admin. OnePieceNation (talk) 17:54, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

Alright. I'll look through the options and find the thing to click to make that happen. Dream Focus 17:59, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

new pages

In case you start wondering. I will eventually fill in all the pages, I am making. Once I am done with the chapters I will do movies and arcs. OnePieceNation (talk) 13:54, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

Biggest site problem

The biggest problem on the site is that the page for the mission and the corresponding alien(s) are the same. Every alien and every misison should have its own page.  So instead of doing two chapters I will work on that during the weekend. OnePieceNation (talk) 14:34, July 4, 2013 (UTC)

Is there any information about the aliens outside the missions though? Can you have an article about the mission without mentioning what the aliens were like? And can you talk about the aliens without mentioning the details of the mission? Dream Focus 15:55, July 4, 2013 (UTC)

Creationg templates is tiring

After a long night I finally created an alien template and a mission template. Please tell me if you think their, fine, great or perfect. I have also made pages for both the adult and kid onion aliens and I renamed all mission pages. Tomorrow I am going to seperate the alien part of the mission pages from the mission pages and create alien pages. However I have one small question wether we should call those who are forced to hunt aliens: hunters, players or participants which I prefer. OnePieceNation (talk) 21:43, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

Are they called by any official name in the Gantz manual or other official publications? What about in the video game? I don't see the point of having the aliens mentioned outside of their mission, if there isn't really anything known about them. When you get the missions like the Dinosaur mission, what do you say? Just list every single thing there, and have the story of the mission spread out through all those enemies? I don't think that's going to work. If you could figure out how to make a working template for the episode or chapter list that'd be something truly useful. I tried many times to just import the ones from Wikipedia, but never got it working. Dream Focus 21:56, July 6, 2013 (UTC)
The point is the fact that this is a wikia and not a group of articles on wikipedia. Wikipedia templates will always go wonky on wikia's. That is why I use other wikia templates as a basis. A wikia's job is to give clear, destinct, easy access information. Jumbeling the mission together with the aliens makes for a poor and confusing read. It also cause multpile pages for the same mission as is the case with the italian/romen statute mission and the nurarihiyon and dinosaur/kappa. The mission pages as they are are terribly unorginezed and unnecessary difficult to read.  Seperating them creates clearity, easy access and specified information about one thing. After I am done with seperating them I will look into the episode and chapter lists. OnePieceNation (talk) 09:42, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

Character Names

I've noticed that many of the character pages were lacking the characters true names and/or info boxes. Some of them were slapped with a label such as "AmericanG1" or "SoliGirl2". However, now that most of their full or entire true names have come out, I took the liberty of renaming and editing them for accuracy. I still can't find the name for AmericanG4, so if anyone knows it I'd appreciate you notifying me. Also, if anyone could translate the manual for better accuracy, I like to know that, too. Orochidayu (talk) 23:22, July 11, 2013 (UTC)

[1] I didn't realize they had names at all, or that they were listed anywhere. Dream Focus 00:41, July 12, 2013 (UTC)

I guess you've never heard of the Gantz Manual. It contains extensive information and other tidbits on the setting, characters, weapons, aliens, and more. It's a data book of sorts. Some of the anime section was scanned and translated into English, but for some reason they stopped. There's an article about the manual on this site. --Orochidayu (talk) 06:12, July 12, 2013 (UTC)

I heard about it and have a copy, but it wasn't translated that far. I guess people add to the translation over the years somewhat. Dream Focus 13:56, July 12, 2013 (UTC)

Besty17

I have just changed Besty17's block from indefinite to 2weeks, since he needs to be unblocked to be able to adopt this wiki http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Adoption:Galactik_Football_Wiki. I personally believe in second, third and fourth chances, so I wouldn't mind him making a second effort to become and editor here as long as he can accept mine and your decisions about stuff. He personally said he doesn't feel like editing here anymore, which is fine by me. I think we should keep him unblocked but if you disagree feel free to block him again in 4 weeks after having giving him the time to adopt his wiki.

OnePieceNation (talk) 16:23, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

That's fine. I just argued in places with her, she refusing to stop doing certain things even after I specifically said to. Not just our discussion here on my talk page that took place. She even carried the argument over to another wikia and claimed it wasn't an argument, refusing to admit she did anything wrong. Don't think I can let someone like that back in ever. Dream Focus 16:30, September 6, 2013 (UTC)
Besty is a male but you probably didn't know it >_> {{SUBST:User:Staw-Hat_Luffy/sig1}} 16:54, September 6, 2013 (UTC)

  • I explained the entire issue at the adoption request page, and linked to various examples of problems with the person. [2] On August 26, 2013 the request was closed. You'll have to email the administrator if you want them to reconsider. The category was changed from "Adoption requests" to "Complete request". Dream Focus 13:57, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

Content

The category content is mostly used on primary pages, like category pages, pages with lists on them and pages with questions and answers on them like here. Basically it is the final listing category. A chapter can be categorized under chapters/manga chapters an episode can be categorized under episodes and characters under characters. But eventually you will have pages who won't fit into nice categories like that and then content is used, we could however make the category lists and limit the number of times, content is necessary.

OnePieceNation (talk) 18:17, September 20, 2013 (UTC)

Don't judge a book on it's cover

or anime for that matter. Hunter x Hunter has many parts in it that are as near to seinen as you can get in a shonen. Especially in the manga. Give it a watch or a read before you knock it down based on the appearance of Gon (the main protagonist) and Killua (the secondary protagonist and professional assassin). OnePieceNation (talk) 14:09, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

PS: I have only heard about btttoom but I have seen claymore and it is my very long to read list. So I will request affiliation from the claymore wiki. OnePieceNation (talk) 14:18, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Main Page

In case you were wondering the Main Page is still under construction and I moved the content of the previous main page to Gantz General Information. OnePieceNation (talk) 22:59, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Wikia has rules of content. They erase files that show nudity whenever they notice them, and they erased a page that listed what pages in the manga had sex or nudity. So you putting a picture on the main page of a group of men raping a giant nude alien female, certainly wouldn't be acceptable. Dream Focus 02:43, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
Why revert all my edits and hard work, when you could just as easily have changed just that picture. OnePieceNation (talk) 11:37, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
Construction of the main page is 80 % done, I only have to figure out  what other two to three sections are relevant for our wiki. To me it seems redundant for us to have latest episode and chapter sections. Also since the volume covers are rather bland having a section that list them also seem unnecessary so I am wondering whether we should have links to the missions, arcs or to the aliens on the main page and whether we should have featured articles or not. So please tell what kind of sections you would like to have on the main page. OnePieceNation (talk) 11:53, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
All information should be linked to on the main page. Like I did on Voltron wikia [3] and my Taylor Swift Wiki [4]. We could have pictures there, and list links to relevant things. And of course, no latest episode or issue link, since the series is completed. A link to the manga, a link to the anime, show all the chapters/episodes in that list, a link to the characters or decent pictures of the main characters with links to their pages and then a link to a page all of the notable characters, a picture of some equipment linking to the equipment page, etc. Perhaps a picture of the aliens at each mission, and link to those missions, that would look interesting. People show up, see the beautiful women and tough guys, see what the aliens look like, and the gear, and then they instantly get interested in it at a glance and look around. Dream Focus 13:50, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
  • The pictures you used of the characters are ugly. Kishimoto looks bad, there far hotter images of her out there to use. Something from the manga should be used instead. Dream Focus 14:01, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
  • There is no reason to have so much space on the main page dedicated to links to other anime/manga, especially since most of those series have a different target audience. Also its unlikely anyone is going to be making any new articles other than us, since everything anyone could think of has already been made. So that part taking up page space can be removed as well. Dream Focus 14:01, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
  • Before I continue with the main page I first need to have  a conversation with a wikia staff member who isn't a prude. Since User:Sannse keeps on removing pictures even though they are covers. OnePieceNation (talk) 19:07, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

I am now done with the main page, I incorporated everything you wanted me to incorporate. I work many hours on so don't revert it before discussing it with me. OnePieceNation (talk) 19:53, October 11, 2013 (UTC)

Covers

I can edit the fan sub out, I can't however find licensed cover online, like you, please tell me where you found those two covers and if I can find the rest there. If not I would like all to covers to show uniformity, meaning they all should look the same and not as different as 1 and 2 now look from all the others.  So please let me know what I should do should I edit all the covers (like I just did with cover 46), including 1 and 2 or do you know a site that has all the license covers and should I just replace them?

OnePieceNation (talk) 16:07, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

I just uploaded all the covers for chapters 3 to 10. I'll do the rest after that. They'll have the same naming convictions and dimensions. File:Gantz 01x03 chapter cover.png Dream Focus 16:23, September 29, 2013 (UTC)
  • Strange error. Had some trouble but finally got the next 12 chapter covers up now. Will be working on the rest. Special:ListFiles/Dream_Focus is where you can find them all. Dream Focus 16:54, September 29, 2013 (UTC)
    Got 70 chapters completed. Dream Focus 17:44, September 29, 2013 (UTC)

Do you agree that they guy on the cover of chapter 56 is Shion Izumi disguise during his spree killing from chapter 122 to chapter 132. Because it definitely isn't one of the black guys we saw during the dinosaur mission. OnePieceNation (talk) 22:34, October 4, 2013 (UTC)

I don't recall him painting his chest black also. I don't care enough to be looking through chapters to find pictures to compare. If the faces look the same though, put it in the article for it. Dream Focus 00:57, October 5, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah in my memory many characters were named either here in the manga, or in the anime or even in some data file. Currently I am just making pages for every character or group that seems even only remotely intersting since you never know when they will show up again. Characters in gantz have a tendency to dissappear for 150+ chapters and then suddenly show up again. OnePieceNation (talk) 23:18, October 7, 2013 (UTC)

Covers

There are several holes in the Cover Pages you uploaded. I am missing the covers of chapter 57, 85, 92, 94 and 124.

Obviously I am also waiting for 129-383 to be uploaded by you. 

OnePieceNation (talk) 09:07, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

I decided to delete some of those I uploaded in bulk that I noticed violated the Wikia rules. File:Gantz 11x11 -129- chaper cover.jpg File:Gantz 11x11 -130- chaper cover.jpg File:Gantz 08x12 -094- chapter cover.png File:Gantz 08x03 -085- chapter cover.png File:Gantz 05x11 -057- chapter cover.png I was thinking since they told us not to do that before, no need pushing my luck. If you want to undelete those and use them, that's fine, if they get upset, they can talk to you. If I can find the other volume collections online in an CBR format, then I can do what I did before. I unzip it into a folder, then grab all the files that are labeled as the first issue of each chapter, that the cover, and unload them all at once. I previously couldn't find the other volumes, but I'll check again, its been awhile. There shouldn't be any other files missing though, just check the name. One chapter didn't have a cover image at all, it just got right into the action apparently, the one where Izumi has a hostage and is shooting everyone. Dream Focus 13:22, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

O damn I forgot to tell you I got a response from wikia about that problem. 

Here is the response: 

Hi OnePieceNation,

Wikia's Terms of Use state: "You agree that you will not [...] Post or transmit any content that is obscene, pornographic, abusive, offensive [or] profane". We have expanded on this in our new Community Guidelines at http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Community_Central:Community_Guidelines

Overall, Wikia should be suitable for general audiences. That means that we aim for a level of explicitness that would be seen in standard US media. While there are exceptions, as mentioned on the Community Guidelines, that usually means no nudity. We also do not allow explicit descriptions of sex - especially violent sex.

If your topic requires more explicit content than is usual, it may be that Wikia is not the right place for the wiki. However, from what I've seen of images on the site, it seems that the vast majority are within the guidelines. It seems to be only some of the covers, and a few other images that are a problem. If you are able to find alternatives for images such as http://gantz.wikia.com/wiki/File:Insideship.jpg that will help. I will mark the chapter covers as an allowable exception, as they can't be substituted for other images, but any covers that are more explicit than those I've seen (for example, if any show sex acts) will still not be allowed.

I realize this isn't ideal for you, but hope it will help.

Regards,

-- sannse

So the covers as long as they don't show sex acts which I believe none of them do, are allowed. 

OnePieceNation (talk) 18:03, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, great. No problems then. Just had me a bit worried. I found the 12th volume so I'll be getting all the covers from it now. Dream Focus 19:09, October 10, 2013 (UTC)
Volume 12 covers have been uploaded. Dream Focus 19:24, October 10, 2013 (UTC)
  • I can't find any cover images from volume 13 that don't have fansub names on them. Dream Focus 19:34, October 10, 2013 (UTC)
  • Skip them for now and try to find the rest alos tell me were you got the others from, since I can't find any. OnePieceNation (talk) 23:34, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
    You can find them online in PDF format [5], able to be extracted to a folder, and easily gotten. Dream Focus 00:11, October 22, 2013 (UTC)

God Aliens

I tried to identify all the faces of the people the God Aliens show but I can't go further that this could you help me identify them further and please tell me whether you think my assumptions naoto kan, clint eastwood, isaac newton etc are right. OnePieceNation (talk) 23:39, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

I have no idea. Could be anyone for most of them. Just whoever the creator felt like having drawn there. Dream Focus 23:53, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

templates

what have you done with all those templates not all templates from wikipedia are ones you brought in by copying from wikipedia, you somehow removed the wiki activity feed. OnePieceNation (talk) 14:28, December 30, 2013 (UTC)

No, its still there. It just list other things as the most recent activity, and these aren't on the main list. Anything you do from now on will appear on it. I brought over only the things listed at Special:Wantedtemplates. Dream Focus 14:46, December 30, 2013 (UTC)

alright OnePieceNation (talk) 20:59, December 30, 2013 (UTC)

Covers

By mere chance I found the original japanese cover for chapter 143, however for the other 20 chapters after it I can only find the fansub covers so I will now use cleaned up versions them instead. OnePieceNation (talk) 23:39, February 23, 2014 (UTC)

aot/snk

I am waiting for the anime to end before watching it, also I can watch it on my netflix account. Which I just recently got since it just recently came to my country  (the netherlands). OnePieceNation (talk) 01:01, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
