I don't know if you've been an admin on any other wiki, but I think most of your new capabilities here will not throw you for too much of a loop. Where once you could choose to Edit a page, now there will be options to Rename, Protect, or Delete. You can now visit the Admin Dashboard and make edits to the navigation bar. One thing I do think is a bit hidden away is if you need to block a user, it's among the options when viewing their Contributions. Feel free to ask one of us if you've got any questions.
Most admin communication is pretty open, but for times when we want a little more privacy (like discussing pros or cons of potential new admins) we usually use a group conversation at Hello! Online because... it works. We've also got an #adminsonly channel on the Discord server, though it's pretty rare for anyone but me to be in there.
Sorry for the late reply, but thank you!! I'm honored, and I'm not sure what to say, I didn't expect to win the audition, so thank you. On a side note, I never use Hello! Online, so I'm going to have to check whether I have an account on there or not...
Kica, if you're logged in then at the top there should be an envelope icon that will take you to private messages. Possibly right now it will be lit up showing unread messages since I've just invited you into our already existing conversation. Anyway, just click on it and you'll be in.
Depending on your settings you can also make it email you when there's a new message there, but the system seems kind of flaky about sending these in a timely manner.
The covers you replaced are the actual covers, perhaps saturated with the colors off, but the actual covers nonetheless. The image you replaced them with are photographs of the singles. There's a difference. if you can maybe find a way to scan the covers of those singles, or maybe find a version of the actual covers with more accurate colors, that would be good. For now, I think it will be better to restore the covers to the way it was before, and then when you have those better covers, you can replace them.
Sorry if I didn't explain it well, if you need more clarification for what I just said, I can try to explain my opinion again. I have work though, so I won't be able to get back to you for several more hours.
After Wada Ayaka’s Graduation, the Hello! Project website changed the ANGERME members official order to be leaders first and then everyone else after, but since this wiki has a history of ordering the members by generation, and since the rest of the pages on the wiki lists the ANGERME members in order by generation, I do think that your Portal template should do the same if for no other reason than to be in accordance with how the rest of the wiki orders the members.
Hey, Kica. I'm not 100% sure why you started deleting lyrics links, but I think they're something useful to have and I've recently checked with the folks at Project Hello to make sure they don't object to the links being there. So please leave them alone from now on?
While I may not be on the wiki as often as I used to, I still have the most edits out of everyone applying this time around. In addition, whenever I am on the wiki, I sometimes go through the pages and categories that need maintenance, a job that could be done easier if I were an admin. Even though I can't promise anything, I want to do my best if I'm chosen as admin.
This is being copy/pasted to all who decided to audition to be an admin. Tomorrow starts the second week of August so I'll put up a second blog entry for discussion to continue with and about you lot. I'd like to include a message from each of you. Consider this your main sales pitch. Why do you want to be an admin, and why do you think other people should want that, too? If that includes stating things the current admins are lackluster at, that's fair game. Just send me your message as a reply here.
I can't promise anything if I become an admin. I have, however, been a user on the wiki for a while, even if I've been away for a while for some of that time. This is an example of a factor that is going in my favor. If anything, though, I'm going to be a senior in high school in less than a month, so I'll be busy with college apps and stuff. In addition, I do not have my own laptop. This message, in addition to anything I've been doing for the past several months, was typed on my iPhone. This is a factor that is going against me.
If I become admin, all I can promise is that I will try my best to give this wiki anything that I have to offer.
And your blog is no longer on private... hehe, I feel like such a stalker but it made me happy to see just one little contribution from you. I miss you, Kica-chaaaannnn! I hope you're doing okay. Love ya! <3
I apologize for the random message I just got excited and I was thinking about you not too long ago so...yeah...
In the UFP page, I did that page a looooong time ago and I forgot to fix it (oops). J.P. Room and Just Pro are different companies. Just Pro is a new company (formed in 2012). In early 2013, they affiliated with J.P. Room, and they took both Kusumi and Mano with them. Transfering members takes a while, which explains why it took forever to remove Ai and Gaki from UFP's page.
But there is no proof of Yamaga graduating.She is probably busy,or hurt herself.Since we heard nothing about her,we really should not go ahead andsay that she left when she probably did not.Probably,Tsunku is getting her ready for a unit.
People don't have to graduate to leave, I can list countless eggs who resigned without any graduation or notice, they're all listed on the Hello! Pro Kenshuusei page if you want. Yamaga Kanae is listed on Wikipedia as a former member that resigned in August 2012, check it if you must.
Maybe, but if she were debuting or hurt herself, they would have said SOMETHING. They told us when Aika got hurt, Ayumi got hurt, Kudo got hurt, Eri with her skin disease, Kanna with her bunion thing. And, S/mileage and Up Up Girls, and new Morning Musume members all got announcements. It's really a small chance that Yamaga Kanae would be debuting or hurt without an announcement. Maybe if you want to double check, you can check out the official site and see if Yamaga Kanae is still listed on the site: http://www.up-fc.jp/helloproject/member/egg/egg-show_2012sep.php#004
Also, this situation similarly happened to Icecreamusume and Frances & Aiko, both left and were removed from the site without an announcement.
If you want, I can always just remove the confirmed part, but still list her as "left". She's technically "inactive" if you want to be as positive as possible. If you want, go ahead and list her as inactive until a year rolls by and she still hasn't taken part.
I wouldn't be too dramatic. It's a small chance that she'll be actually returning or that her profile was removed for no reason. Usually, that's not the case.
I'm not trying to sound mad. I'm trying to say that she most probably resigned. Wikipedia is actually more reliable that some other wikis out there, and if Wikipedia says that Kanae resigned in August, then she probably did. Otherwise, it would have been pointless for her to have been inactive while the others were active for a trivial reason. It never happens. It's either announced or mentioned in some sort of way that she's inactive but will come back, or she just left and there was no announcement.
She probably died her hair purple for cha cha sing.
What kind of single do you think WANT! will be?
I think electro and where everyone gets lines like heroine ni narou ka!(thats my second favorite berryz single.First being special generation and third tomodachi wa tomodachi nanda!) with some autotune.
But her hair was purple in Chou HAPPY SONG and Loving you Too much, too.....
When I thought of WANT! just now, it made me think of C-ute's Kiss me Aishiteru. Which is like wanting a kiss and stuff. I agree when you say it's gonna be electro, but I'm not sure if it's gonna be autotuned or not (I don't think they need it). Cool favorite Berryz songs!
If she were leaving, I would think that Rina would look more upset. I think she's only upset about something that happened on stage.
I guess, but if H.P. All Stars was legendary, then it should stay a one time thing because it's so special. I just think that they should have called it something else, cause when Mano leaves, they're either gonna have to change the name or disband the group...
Yeah,but I think Tanaka would not STAND to be away from Shige.It would be hard for her as leader too,knowing that she might not have any of the people she first debuted with.I think they would graduate together,probably in 2013/2014.
I liked Risa a lot better when I saw Haromoni@ when there was the GakiKame theater, and when they had the idiot girl and crap girl tests way back around the time Kei was graduating and the 6th gen first joined.
She's first because when I was first setting up my profile, the Sayumi picture happened to be the one I put up first and, as a result, was put up there first. Actually, I had Junjun up there first, but the pictures on my profile aren't in any particular order...
Well, you wouldn't know how they would feel at having a member leave. They've been with this member for a long time, and now that one of their friends is leaving, they're sad. It's like when someone from school decides to leave and go to another school. You aren't sure if you're gonna see them again, so they're sad.... and cry.
