  • Images that are screenshots or manga scans require the anime name/manga name and episode number/chapter number. This is so we know where to look to find higher resolution images and what text it should accompany in a history section.

    When it comes to screenshots and scans, the "Source" doesn't field doesn't mean the website you get it from, it means the series and episode/chapter its from. If one is incapable of renaming the file, one must at least replace the source field or add the episode title as a category.

    • It's a good idea to identify screenshots, that's a cool system you designed, but as I noted in the source, the ones I uploaded were just taken from other sites. Sadly, they don't list where they are from. I agree we should try to eventually replace them with correctly labelled ones, but bottom line is that it is better to have an illustrated article than not. In order to be most useful for the readers, we need pictures first. Replacing them with higher quality, better description, etc. seems like something to do after the site has, at the very least, articles on major topics with at least one basic illustrsation (I couldn't believe so many key topics like main characters still didn't have an image...).

    • At least add episode names as categories to the ones you know of.

    • Sure. If I screencap myself rather than taking caps from web sources that don't lable anything, I'll be sure to do so.

  • Don't use the compendium (macross.anime.net) as a source since they don't source their own data.. Use information directly from watching anime or official materials like you've done here (but it's better to take your own screenshots and upload it to this site rather than use an external host like imgur).

    • Sure, I can try to follow that - but do note there is inconsistency in existing materials. For example, Yang Neumann, an article which seems significantly edited by you, is still in present tense. I don't see you removing or deleting its contents. Now, I am all for fixing it, but it is also clear that deletion is not necessary.

    • I said if you copy from English Wikipedia use Template:Wikipedia to signify it, I didn't say it was ok.. Because it honestly, is a shoddy source for Macross.

      Official (source from these):

      1. Macross Chronicle (read sketchley's fan translation)
      2. AnimEigo SDFM Liner Notes
      3. http://macross.jp and its Delta subsite
      4. Macross Perfect Memory (I fan translate on a case by case basis that is I'll translate paragraphs and sentences rather than an entire page.)

      Unofficial but very reliable (Useful for research but don't source from them.):

      1. Macross Mecha Manual
      2. Compendium
      3. Japanese Wikipedia articles on Macross as opposed to English which you've been copying from.
