  • I'm from the Siiva team. It was brought to my attention that some articles, such as the one for yodooder, feature the subject's full name prominently on the page. He and many more of us feel uncomfortable having our names posted this way, and I'm asking on behalf of everyone named in an article who's not agreed to being named if you'd be so kind as to revise their articles to remove their real names. We'd also appreciate it if you'd refrain from posting information like peoples' real names unless you have their permission. We appreciate your enthusiasm and thank you for your consideration.

    • I’m one of the other admins on the wiki. On behalf of the SiIvaGunner Wikia’s contributors, I deeply apologize for this mistake. We have responded personal privacy issues before and removed personal information, but we have not been consistent. I will remove full names and full birthdays from contributor articles, and revise our editing guidelines to respect the privacy of those we write about.

    • I deeply apologize as well. This wiki was never intended to be harmful for the privacy of SiIvaGunner contributors. I am really sorry that we have been passive about this situation, and promise that the articles will not display full names, irrelevant old usernames or other personal information in the future.

      There is now 112 articles in the "Contributors" category, and I don't think these 112 people approved of their articles at all. Please don't hesitate to tell us whenever people want their articles to be revised, because spreading personal or false information about contributors is the last thing we would want.

    • On behalf of the Siiva team again I'd like to say thanks and that we all appreciate your swift action. We're very fortunate that such a nice group of people as you guys is running this wiki. Once again, thanks for your consideration and your enthusiasm!

  • From the trumpet noise you hear in the beginning of this rip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_83fSFLJzU, is that the same trumpet from the Family Theme song, or from a different song?

  • Hey Merry, 

    I noticed that you've been removing rips that only contain the song "Meet the Flintstones" from the "Rips featuring 7 GRAND DAD" category. Wouldn't those rips go in that category, as "Meet the Flintstones" is a sub-meme of the 7 GRAND DAD meme?

    • Hey Stroove,

      Sorry for removing all the categories on your Undertale rips just like that. I decided to remove the Flintstones rips from the "Rips featuring 7 GRAND DAD" category when I saw that most people weren't adding them to it, including Ironwestie and HughMungusEsq.

      I've used the "Rips featuring 7 GRAND DAD" category instead of "Rips featuring Meet the Flintstones" for Flintstones rips for a while and I shouldn't have. Now I think that it's better to use the categories according to what can be heard in the rip. Most of the time melody changes are not of the full title theme of 7 GRAND DAD, but just of the regular Flintstones theme. Having two categories allows that distinction to be made. Also, "Rips featuring Meet the Flintstones" is currently a subcategory of "Rips featuring 7 GRAND DAD".

    • Okay, I see what you mean. I was just thinking of this with that "List of SiIvaGunner memes" page in mind. Should we change the 7 GRAND DAD section there to "Meet the Flintstones"?

        Loading editor
    • You mean, that Meet the Flintstones would be the main meme and 7 GRAND DAD would be a variation? It's probably how the team view things too, and I'm okay with it.

      Still, people always refer to flintstones as "grand dad" and SiIvaGunner is always associated with the grand dad meme (which is why I put Flintstones rips in "Rips featuring 7 GRAND DAD" in the first place). I'd say this subject needs a forum thread.

  • Hey Merry,

    Should all the rips under the "Rips featuring Megalovania" and "Rips featuring Sans is Ness" categories also go under the "Rips featuring Undertale" category, or would that be redundant?

    --Stroove

      Loading editor
    • Hey, Sorry for the late reply. I don't think it would be redundant to have a rip in both the categories "Rips featuring Megalovania" & "Rips featuring Undertale". For "Sans is Ness", the "Undertale" category would be ok if it accepts other things than songs from Undertale, though something like "Rips featuring Game Theory" is probably more accurate.

    • Hey Merry,

      Thanks for replying at all. I put forth this question to Iron, and he said that it would be redundant, "since the categories are already subcategories of Undertale"

      Would you like me to open a forum post for you two to discuss this?

      EDIT: I already started a post if that's okay with you. It's at Thread:6288

  • Hey Merrygoroundoflife,

    I've attempted to fix the bug you reported in your edit summaries.

    I've made it so that the infobox won't categorize or automatically link the album or author if they have links or tags on them. The infobox also won't link / categorize if those parameters have more than one value (i.e. "Mth, Chaze" won't work, while "Mth" will). It should fix the problem.

    In the future, please use this thread (or another like it) to report bugs. I don't get notifications unless the edit is from a forum thread or Message Wall post.

    Thanks again for your hard work!

    • Oh ok, sorry for the confusion.

      That's what I meant by "if we can't parse ref tags, then we have to add the link and category ourselves". We'll have to check every article with ref tags in the infobox, then.

      Are you sure there isn't any other way to parse them?

      No. I asked on Community but I've received no answer.

  • -> Template Category link (inspired from Wikipedia)

    • They automaticly apply categories, and the tag label displayed can be changed with the parameter altphrase .

    Is that useful or does it add unnecessary categories?

    • I like them! I would consider changing the neutrality one to something else, though. Neutrality is more of a problem on Wikipedia, since they talk about real-life people that might be biased against/for the subject of the article.

      On this wiki, we really just need to make sure people don't say "This rip is a fantastic Kazoo rip by the handsome Ironwestie" or something opinionated like that.

        Loading editor
    • I think the neutrality on this wiki matters, since there are some controversies and such.

      Examples:

      I'd agree that these sentences can be easily deleted or corrected, though. For now I haven't found such a sentence. I tried tagging Haltmann with a theory but it was stupid, and I should have used the "citation needed" tag instead.

        Loading editor
    • Fair enough. Perhaps Amboxes for 'Neutrality' and 'Citation needed' are also needed, since they are used (in Wikipedia, anyway) to notify editors / readers of really biased / unsourced data. Or perhaps we won't run into that problem.

  • I think ideally every "Rips by artist" category should include a list of rips, like "Rips by month" and "Rips featuring..." categories do. It's just that Triple Q has made a huge number or rips, it's the same as with "Rips featuring Snow halation", the list is gonna be humongous, pardon the pun :)

      Loading editor
    • Actually I'm wondering about category pages, since we are not handling this like Wikipedia.

      I think on Wikipedia, instead of putting the list in the category page, they would have made an article "List of <this category>", such as what I suggested for "Rips referencing YouTubers" and put only a link to the list in the category page.

      Hence why I asked about "Triple-Q" if I should make a "List of Triple-Q rips" instead. I should have discussed that earlier maybe, since it also affects your "Rips by month" and "Rips featuring..." list... (great work by the way)

      Triple-Q didn't made a huge number of rips, don't worry: only about 50, so it's less than what is already in "List of songs featured in rips" :)

    • I see. Well, I think it's better to discuss it on the forums then, we need a consensus on this. The reason I started putting lists on category pages is because it's easy to check if something's missing from the list. E.g. someone adds this category to a rip, then one can go to the category page and compare the list with the automatically generated list of pages containing the category. That's why I made the tables sortable, too – I can easily sort the table alphabetically and compare it with the autogenerated list. If the list was on some other page, it would require loading 2 pages and cross-comparing them, which is more complicated. Another reason is that if the list isn't very long (e.g. "Rips featuring Bangarang", which is currently 12 rips) making a new page for the list seems too superfluous and spammy. But I'm open to discussion, of course.

      P.S.: Thanks! Glad to help

    P.S.: I like your idea to make it a list, btw, thanks for the suggestion!

  • Looks very cool! But what about characters who aren't memes? E.g. Santa Claus, Meta Knight. Would this template work for them too?
