@pikahyper:@wcarle Bug is still up. I'm unable to add anything to the wiki as I can't upload any images to pages.

I feel that you should have included Gravity. It's not a hardcore sci-fi film but it still counts.

@ghostodoofus2: Most of these are sci-fi, they're not your Star Wars or Star Trek, but they still have large elements of the genre.

On-topic: It was a hard choice between Arrival and Inception, but I had to give my vote to Inception as it just kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Plus the visuals were stunning.

New Bug: If you enter text into the description field and save it. It adds points. Then if you open it up again in the same edit and add new text, it doesn't add the new text to the point counter, regardless of how much is added.

Request for the Series section of the wiki:

Cast & Crew

Add a new section to episode pages to allow cast and crew members to be credited. Due to the sheer number of roles that can be credited, keep it limited to a small number of important roles.

Once a creator has been added, allow two initial choices to choose from, Cast or crew. Once one of them has been selected, have a new dropdown menu appear based on the previous choice to have the following options appear.

Cast:

  • Cameo

  • Guest Starring

  • Main Actor/Actress

  • Supporting Actor/Actress

  • Guest Voice Actor/Actress

  • Main Voice Actor/Actress

  • Supporting Actor/Actress

And if possible, allow the cast to be linked to a character so that their name appears next to it or vice versa.

Crew:

  • Cinematographer

  • Director

  • Editor

  • Producer

  • Special Thanks

  • Writer

Have their Series credit’s appear on their main page as currently on the Movies section, actors can be credited but no information is transferred to their own page, leaving them blank.

Teams

Have teams that appear in episodes have their own episode appearance count in the same sense that characters do.

Themes

Allow themes to be added to series, with the same features as volumes currently have. If possible, have a few themes exclusive to the series section as many shows; specifically anime, use their own terms. I.E: Shounen, Ecchi, Shoujo & Seinen.

Series in General

The landing page for series should not place the user on most popular as it hasn't changed in months, meaning it’s not the most popular in any way. It should be Publish Date, starting with the newest.

On that note, sorting by publish date hasn't worked since the site rework. It gives error 500 when sorted.

Series Details Box

Add a new section called based on/inspired that can be used to link to its source material or what was created afterwards. This will reduce the need to place it in the description box. This will help users find the original source material as manga can be incredibly hard to find the source for as titles can change between Anime and Manga

Add another section with two choices to choose from, Live Action and Animated with a link to anything else credited with those choices.

Quick Add

Remove quick add from the series section and place it into individual series section. I haven’t found a need to mass add series quickly compared to the amount of time I’ve spent adding hundreds of episodes consecutively.

Lo'Gosh should have his name changed to Varian Wrynn as it's his actual name and Lo'Gosh was a name he used while as a gladiator and currently goes by his real name.

Pika' and I have discussed it to some extent, we put together a list of themes that can be used.

Other editors were involved, I've solicited multiple editors for suggestions and will continue to so the list can evolve and improve.

Apologies. I completely forgot.

And seriously people its been almost a decade, it is pikahyper with a p not P.

My bad. Capitalising names is a habit my old English teach reinforced into my head, even if they are written in lower case.

@redhood_jaytodd: Apology accepted, although not needed. Just happy that we agreed in the end.

@redhood_jaytodd: The only reason I tagged him was because he's one of the few mods I've spoken to that interact on the forums, the others are wiki. If you think someone else can also contribute, tag them.

But thank you for understanding the point I was making.
