Hello Jas, it's been awhile. I stopped playing otome games after school started for me, sorry for my absence. I see a lot of people helping though and I'm glad the community is growing as the time pass by ^_^. I'll still continue the task about the icons. Especially the removal of the standalone apps, I better act quick. >.<
I'm sorry for my tardiness of the editing summary of Kazusa Hanai page. In a sense, I wasandam still very busy right now. I can certainly edit the page during the month of December. In these months, however, I'm taking care of several projects, after-school activities, and more, a future part-time job. It's quite heavy, especially the last weeks of stress.
Despite all of this, I will take full responsibility for my actions. I'd like to know what are your personal thoughts and what solutions we can find. Above all, if, lastly, there any guidelines that explain this situation on the website, I'd clearly check it out after a couple of weeks. Thank you for your warning. If you ever have anything else to mention, please let me know in your message wall.
Please, no rush. I understand that you have a busy life style - I have one too (not that fun ahaha). But I do hope you don't ware yourself too much and be sure to rest as well; the editing can always wait.
Just know that I wasn't there to reprimand you, just to help you with our guidelines is all. As we've experienced many troubles with copyright, I do not want a new editor to deal with such a thing. But you are free to ask questions and present your concerns to me if you feel that is it needed ^^
I wish you good luck with your endeavors and please don't forget to rest!
Hi teacher! Excuse me, please do not be upset ... I'm curious, that see new app "Love 365" but what do I fix with the new name and new games? And "Taishō Roman, Unmei no Hito" because he was never changing in "doom" for nothing? Do not look "see source"? :'3
I recently started playing the otome games again and was also released a personality quiz, just yesterday. I actually have made two quizzes, based on some of the games by Voltage Inc. Would it be alright for me to advertise it somewhere on here, so I can get more people to take it?
I actually made it ages ago and wonder now why I never talked about it earlier, lol.
As in the home page of Voltage Inc wikia, where the list of games and polls are?
If so, then I want to make it like, in the same place as the polls, but on a different tab, if you know what I mean. I'll write a description that I've made quizzes for some games and insert the links to them there.
Hi Jas, Did you check out the My Last first Kiss new character Icons? What did you think? If you're okay with it, once I get home I'll change all the character Icons into like that style. ^^;; (I'm going to finish cropping in the for the other pages too.)
Hey, I did actually but it looks uhhh, strange. Like, the scroll bar there... it makes the page look funny.
So I moved the image right next to the description of the character. And it made a huge space between the first sentence. So I'm trying to find a way for the words to curve around the image. And I think I may have found it. Let me try it out first.
Hahaha, same here. I don't really have much knowledge to it, though I do know some •~• I would do a lot more research about other ways to make the Character Portal look okay, but I'm going back to school next week so I have errr.. some stuff to do. 😅
Ugggh... Okay, I'm finished. I didn't use coding which made it more of annoyance but all I did was put it in as a picture, and placed it on the left side, then did some spacing between the characters to separate them. And this is what I have. It's about a 4 space (using the Enter button) between each character, expect for Ayato... Annoying jerk >.> And then, to achieve the spacing between the last character and next section is about 6-7 spaces (didn't really check)
I saw, I actually like it :D I followed how you do it for the other pages, I finished for today since I haven't finish making the other sprites... Yup I did exactly what you did but It is getting annoying lol, I'm just going to try to get used to it for the next past few days..... >.>
Oooooh, I saw! I'll follow that. Sorry I've been on hiatus Jas, lol. School has started for me and my classes have been soooo hectic these past few weeks and even next week. I'll try my best to upload character icons as I can.
By the way Jas, I have some apps that I don't have in my phone tho lol, may I ask you to instead create the other character icons instead in the apps that I don't have nor play? XD You don't have to, I'll find a way to create the character icons lolol
HHHHaaah, ikr?! Just trying to contribute whenever we can XD
Yay, thank you uwu I would download them but my phone's memory is too full to add anymore apps HAHA, I'm trying to get JP After School Affairs for Chiharu's sprite but lol I'm too lazy to access JP Google Play store ._.
Aww Lucky your school didn't start yet! lololol Mine, even though it's just the second week we already have a quiz and it's beeeeen really hectic ._. even my personal time's been taken away by my homeworks from classes >w<
Yes yesss, though I checked it recently I haven't been able to access it. I used VPN if you're wondering about it. :D
I wouldn't call it lucky if it starts tomorrow. I'm going to have a boat load of stuff to do... sigh...
Huh, I've never really had that issue with iphone. Like all you have to do is type in the japanese name and you can download it. if not, it'll tell you. Most of the time it works. Which games do you have installed, so that I know which ones I'll need to download take pictures of the character icons.
Sorry late reply, this week I had tests going on LOL. Anyway, In don't have the old games except My Forged Wedding. I don't have Sleepless in the Seduced City, Pirate's, Bmp, bmp2, kiss of revenge, llftx, my sweet bodyguard, serendipity, a knight's devotion, metro pd, bad boys do it better,office secrets and more... I might have to download lololol seriously? that's so simplee!!
I haven't heard from you in a while, but I wanted to let you know that Voltage sent me emails and I've learned that we are no longer allowed to posted any cropped CGs for the Character Icons. That is probably why the DMCA was issued and all those pages were deleted.
I think if we just delete the character icons, we can restore the pages without getting trouble with the FANDOM. What I put the reason for the restore was: "The copyrighted content has been hopefully removed".
So I got all these email notifications that most of the game pages are being deleted by Semanticdrifter because of and I quote "Copyright violation: DMCA Takedown Notice Received: DO NOT RESTORE. Contact Fandom for more information or to file a counter-notification."
What part exactly is copyright???? We've cropped the images, the images we've taken are ACCESIBLE if the game is downloaded. UGH, this is driving me insane. I'd assume that if they deleted it, it's probably because of the images we've cropped, even though I read that it is okay for us to do that since it doesn't show the whole thing.
The thing is, if we want to we file a counter-notification we have input our personal information.
I went ahead and restored them but here's the list according to my email:
True Love, Sweet Lies,
Finally, in Love Again,
Enchanted in the Moonlight,
Be My Princess 2,
Serendipity Next Door,
Kissed by the Baddest Bidder,
Class Trip Crush,
Kiss of Revenge,
10 Days with My Devil,
Dreamy Days in West Tokyo,
Office Secrets, A Knight's Devotion,
My Sweet Bodyguard,
Love Letter from a Thief X,
Be My Princess,
In Your Arms Tonight,
Seduced in the Sleepless City, and
My Forged Wedding.
He also deleted two pics of Krioff and Zyglavis in their uniforms and god forms, but I restored that too.
I written on his wall on what the deal was but he hasn't answered in several hours, so I want to ban him from this wiki. I don't care if he's a member of Fandom's community team, we have followed Voltage's rules and they're the ones we answer to because this wiki is dedicated to their games. If he issues these stupid DMCA Takedown Notices, then every wiki's gonna have one.
God, that's a lot. But what if you get blocked? I don't want that to happen to you!
He never really responds to the messages written on his walls even though we need an answer. Exactly, we've read the rules over and over again, and I've even added that term and usage page! I'm not sure what we should do.
I'm gonna be in the chat. Wanna chat there so we can somehow sort this out?
Hi, this is.. the previous kouhahime. I got blocked by someone for violation and stuff so I'm guessing a fandom user blocked me because of what I did to contribute in this wikia.....? May I have my adminship back? ALSO IT IS COMPLETELY BS THAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY DELETING ALL THIS WE'RE FOLLOWING VOLTAGE'S COPYRIGHT RULES THOUGH?
I apologize if my edit reason was unclear; but we received a DMCA takedown for those pages, they should not be restored, and we are happy to provide more info about the takedown notice if the admins reach out to FANDOM via Special:Contact.
Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), hosting providers like FANDOM are legally required to remove material when we receive a takedown notice from the copyright owner, as was the case here.
If we remove something because we receive a DMCA takedown notice, it should under no circumstances be restored. Anyone who restores something we remove due to a takedown notice will be blocked. Please re-remove anything that was restored after the initial takedown.
I have provided the contact information of the copyright owner as requested.
I can appreciate that it is frustrating to see things you worked hard on get removed, but FANDOM needs to honor its obligations under the law. We are not acting out of a sense of malice. Why would I personally want to remove anything added to our network? I am merely complying with the law.
Jas, I got an email from Voltage and here's what they said:
"Thank you for contacting us directly about your concerns and questions.
To be specific, we do not allow the following:
1. CGs (which the posters of the Voltage wiki have largely complied with)
2. BGMs or songs used in the game. (Especially if they are available for download.)
3. Special Images that can be earned via in-app campaigns. (Early Bird Bonuses, etc.)
4. Character voice clips.
5. Gameplay videos.
6. Screenshots of an entire story/route.
We apologize that we did not clearly state what our rules are, but please know that we truly appreciate what you've done for the fandom. It means a lot to have such great fans, and fans willing to put in the time and effort to create these pages.
We will try to be better about making our rules clearer to you in the future, but for the time being, we hope this helps.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Sorry to barge in but Google Translate is not very accurate when translating something in Japanese. Some of the words doesn't make sense when you use Google Translate. There's actually different ways when you read 運命の人/Unmei no Hito, 運命/Unmei can be read as Fated or Destiny either way it's still the same. 人 Can also be read as Man/Person. :)
Calm down Kitty, as I said above there are different ways when you read Japanese,When you read Unmei/運命 it can be read also as Fated or Destiny either way it's still the same. If that's how the blogger translated it so be it. I don't see any "my" in reading 運命の人.
Man, I noticed they're taking down Character Icons again.. -__- i thought we had Voltage's permission about that right? I don't want any other contributors tries to reupload the character icons and get a warning message like us >w< I mean getting banned is really scary thought atleast for me XD Do you have any ideas of what should we do about this and try to avoid from happening this again? ^^;;
Hurgh, this is such a pain. I want to try and alert the people who are persiding over copyright that we are allowed to upload cropped images. But if we can't find a way to contact them about this, we'll have to replace the character icons with their sprites instead. Hurray, more work...
Should we create a template/banner about uploading character icons too? Like Specifically mentioning character icons XD. I'll try to warn Kitty about this too since considering both of us got a warning, we don't want contributors to get banned because of this stupid dmca thingy >,> It is @.@
Noooo sorry for putting more work T.T though, If there's anything I can help with I'll be willing to help ^_^ Hmm... the sprites might be a good idea since so far nothing has been taken down like the free introductions screenshots or background introductions from the characters, it's always the cropped cg character Icons. Alright I'll be waiting for the news you get ^^
Oooh, this is a good idea but it's not gonna match the template we already have laid out. And you know, I've also been trying to put the images next to their character description on their game pages. But, no luck.
Hmm, if we could make the template transparent then yes that'll probably work. But, uhh... I'm not a coder so, I'm not sure how that's gonna work. And like I said, I've been trying to get the character icons to float around the description. But hurgh, this is getting annoying...
I just went to see your profile, first, Kota scared me because I didn't expect him to be there XD But I can see what you mean, you can try it out and see if it'll work with the icons. Have you heard of the Sandbox? You can create it this page and use it as a way to test your codes and stuff without messing with the articles.
Thanks, I appreciate it :D
Hmm, this one sounds more of discontinuation rather than maintenance. We're gonna need to make a new one.
Oh shoot I apologize for that XD trust me he looks good on my laptop that's why i put him there. HAHAHA XD Hmm.. I tried it out it worked but.. the names will be in the bottom of the icons though, I.m still figuring out how to put the names in the bottom right but I'm sure we're close XD Yup heard of it, though not really a fan using sandboxes XD I use classic editor on my profile and preview it lololol
No problem, i'm always here so- why not help XD
Yup that's what I thought but I can't seem to find the maintenance or is it just me being blind lololol
Edit: Okay I figure it all out on how to delete the background, we can still use the template, all you got to do is to edit the template itself and erase the background color, it should be all good now.
LOLOL I didn't know that AHAHAH probably to you guys it will bam XD
Yup, it's super annoying but at the same time I actually have fun at coding XD For me it's actually easier to use classy code than sandbox XD (been doing it to other wikisXD)
now THAT standsout HAHAHA. I like it it's really cute and standout the same time XD I'll be putting it ^^ did the erasing the background color on the template work? :o I hope it did because it's the source x.x
Well the source of the green background is becaus of this template http://voltage-inc.wikia.com/wiki/Template:CharPortalAAA , if you erase the background color in the template html I think the green color background will surely going to be transparent. Sorry if my explaining makes it more complicated ^^;;
