  • Hey, don't you think that we should write a short summary of this wiki?

    • No, I mean that little logo next to the address bar! And do you think one of the reason for this wiki's problem that there are many wiki with the same purpose of Macross?

    • Yeah, the icon is the UN Spacy logo, the circle with the kite on it.

      Yeah but those Wiki's have been abandoned (I Think), I'm not in charge of them.

  • Hey, I have made a few template edit, but why didn't they appear on the Wiki Activity? And I hadn't received a badge, too!

      Loading editor
    • Yeah, they don't show up on any wiki, they do count as an edit i.e. you'd get a badge if you edit 250 template articles they just don't show up on Recent Wiki Activity. Only main pages show up.

  • Do you think we should make it a redirect, if so where to?

  • Hey, I'm the admin of Geronimo, the mecha anime wiki.  I'm linking my wiki to yours for Macross material.  Might I suggest a clearer link to Robotech (the existing wiki for it) & the SDF trilogy.  I understand the desire for some Macross fans to distance Macross from the Robotech version.

    Also I have a page in my wiki for Shoji Kawamori with info you don't have on your page.   You're welcome to copy/link to my Shoji page or any of its contents:

    http://mechaanime.wikia.com/wiki/Shoji_Kawamori

    I look forward to working with you and your Macross Wiki colleagues!

    • I and the other editors were thinking of incorporating Orguss and Southern Cross into this Wiki, what do you think?

      Robotech is linked on our home page and we put links to the Robotech counterparts on all of the pages of the original series.

  • I know a little about Japanese pop culture, so I got a question.

    Aren't Idols and Singers pretty much the same thing? Couldn't they just be merged into a category called, "Idol Singers"?

      Loading editor
    • That was what the original category was but I split them up since some characters such as Basara Nekki is a singer but not an idol.

  • Hey, could you show me how to make tags useable in an infobox template? I'm trying to do it with Muv-Luv wikia.

  • Hello! I am the founder of a Hyperdimension Neptunia wiki and would like to request an affiliation if possible. I hope to receive a favorable response. Thank you for your time.

  • I have a question on what this Wiki's stance is on the Macross Mecha Manual and the Macross Compendium sites? I ask because those are the sites I go for information on the mecha of Macross before I found this wiki, and likely before this wiki was founded as well. I don't really feel comfortable (more accuratly safe) about filling out the pages unless I know what the rules or procedures are concerning these different sites. 

    I just don't want to step on a landmine, I just want to fill pages and I knidof live under a rock so that leaves me at a disadvantage if I have to worry about permissions, rules all that "scary" nonsense.

    P.S. Is permission needed for using the pics found on Macross Mecha Manuel? I'm not even going to try it but if those sites I talked about are used as "External Links" than someone's going to get the idea to do that.

    Again, I just don't want to step on a landmine.

    • If you find any copy and pasted text paragraphs from either of those sites on an article, please put the cleanup template in it so I can check what to remove.

      Use Macross Mecha Manual as a source but don't try to copy entire paragraphs. Putting a link to the mecha's article on that site in external links seems a good source. e.g in the Technology & Characteristics section of a Variable Fighter's article it could be own-written sourced from that site but we put a reference tag with a link to the Variable Fighter's page on Macross Mecha Manual.

      As for Macross Compendium, again don't copy entire paragraphs. I'm not sure if it's collabiratively written since the pages are all locked.

      If you can get the info from watching the Macross anime, playing the games and reading the manga, then put Template:Cite after a sentence or paragraph. We know VF-1Js are use for target practice in AD 2040 because we are shown in the first episode of Macross Plus so in the VF-1J section we put {{cite|Plus|AD 2040}} after the last period in that paragraph or sentence. We know that the Macross was a Meltrandi ship instead of a Supervision Army ship in the Do You Remember Love? movie so we put {{cite|DYRL}} after that paragraph or sentence.

      Using <ref> </ref> tags don't always have to be external links, you can cite DVD booklets/notes which sometimes has character and mecha stats and books such as Shoji Kawamori Macross Design Works (though since we have an article for that book I could expand the cite template to include books.)

    • I wasn't thinking of straight out copying and pasting, what I was going to do was work on the wiki page while I read and look over the page from the other web sites I mentioned. I'm not new to this stuff, but as I said I just didn't walk on any landmines.

      Thanks for the help, I didn't know how to do the citing thing before now. I might try it out.

  • I'm pretty sure it isn't just me, keep getting an empty page, "Home". I've tried going through links on other wikis and I keep getting that blank page. It could be wikia is just acting weird again

  • I have noticed that the spelling of the first opening song of Macross Frontier on this wiki is 'Triangular' however it appears that the official spelling is 'Triangler' according to Yoko Kanno's Itunes and generasia , should I change the spelling on this wiki to 'Triangler'?

    • Very well, since there isn't any official subbed version of frontier, I was watching fansubs when I was making the articles so spellings differ.
