Teasers

You can find them all here[1] Commie 16:09, 19 January 2011 (CST)

Yes I know, but these are higher-quality and load normaly. I usualy have problems with official site. --Euphoric 16:12, 19 January 2011 (CST)

How to format this page? Something like header and brief description? Should video be inlined or as a link? --Euphoric 16:14, 19 January 2011 (CST)

The trailers on the official site work just fine for me, you just have to wait until they load. I suggest putting both links on the page. --E 16:18, 19 January 2011 (CST)
I put them into a table with the title of the video as the link text. Embedding the videos would surely take up a ton of (too much) room. --E 16:36, 19 January 2011 (CST)
Wow, awesome, thanks. --Euphoric 16:39, 19 January 2011 (CST)

Tube Dubber

Why is this classified as "Speculah" or speculation? It's more of just a 'for fun' thing... --e 17:12, 19 January 2011 (CST)

Speculah namespace was intended for everything speculah thread-related, including anything that's not official, for example. Though its use is pretty ambiguous right now, I might as well merge it back to the main namespace. --0x99 17:21, 19 January 2011 (CST)
Ah, okay. Thanks for the clarification. --e 17:22, 19 January 2011 (CST)
Maybe we need a community namespace, any official content would go in the default namespace. Also, I think this page might be better named "Music videos".
I approve of this. Mic2070 04:01, 20 January 2011 (CST)

What is "Media"

Is it is official media, is it community contributed, does it include image packs, videos, dvds, episodes, music, fanart? I think Media should probably be for official Madoka releases, and there should be a community section for fan-made stuff. --Sayaka 01:39, 23 January 2011 (CST)

Community-contributed images, AMVs or something among those line. Official releases are already listed in Products. Teasers are listed here because they're YouTube mirrors. I'm not sure we should splitting up more articles, description in each section should be enough, IMO. --0x99 03:49, 23 January 2011 (CST)

Images

Shouldn't we either remove or update the image gallery here too? Maybe post a link to the image pack (or even better, move its section here; it's more logical to have it here than on the "Threads" page) --Homerun-chan 04:51, 20 February 2011 (CST)

I support removing the gallery here. --0x99 05:47, 20 February 2011 (CST)

Image pack

Is it really useful to have both the content of each archive next to the download link, and a list of the overall content? Why not laying it out like this, for example:

Madoka Image Pack v00010-A.zip (182.71 MB, 434 files)
Fanarts: Mami, Mami and Charlotte, Mamilotte, Charlotte
Madoka Image Pack v00010-B.zip (177.69 MB, 502 files)
Fanarts: Madoka, Kyubey, Madoka and Homura, Homura, Nekomura
etc

Shimeji

I was wondering about this. Can anyone tell me about it's purpose? -Dandan550 04:54, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

It's an app for your desktop. It basically puts the characters walking around in your screen. I tried both of Sayaka's files, and neither worked, though. BrickBreak 11:35, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
It requires jp java file. Dandan550 04:32, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Updating the look-and-feel

I don't know if I'm the only one, but this page doesn't seem too attractive to me right now. Hence, I'm trying to redesign it a bit here. Any comment, modification, addition, etc. would be welcome. Especially, I don't know how we should display the videos/tubedubber links, as well as the official content. For the latter, I thought of something like the "new" Image Pack layout but I'm afraid it would make a bit too much images on the page. --Homerun-chan 17:43, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

MAMI MOGUMOGU GONYO!

Question how do you play this? -Dandan550 10:13, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

A bit late to the party: use the mouse wheel to move Mami's fork. The rest is pretty explicit. --Homerun-chan 08:12, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Proposed page changes

On the sidebar, there's a Products page under the Product category, which really is a consortium of official medias (dvd/bd, cd, and dead trees). Whereas our Media page is a mixture between Teasers and Fanworks. I propose the following changes:

* Products category on the sidebar renamed into Official
* Media split into Teasers (recategorized under Official) and Fanworks (remain under Community)
* Products -> Media

Prima 20:49, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Actually, I think we'll have to change the layout of the Main Page's menu soon too: for instance, a Music section would be welcome I think; or maybe even a Media section where we'd stuff Magia, Connect, the OST, Character Songs, Teasers and Fanworks?
I'm okay with your changes, except that I don't think "Media" is explicit enough to designate the BD/CD/Manga/etc. I don't have an idea of a better name right now though. --Homerun-chan 21:18, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
The redesign is finished. If no one has any objection against it, I propose we move it to the main namespace at the same time. So basically what I put under "Teasers" would have its own page, and every title would move up one level and be on the new "Fanworks" page. --Homerun-chan 16:34, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Aw shucks, does that mean that the redesign work that I just recently did on the actual media page sucks now? :P In all seriousness, though, while I like a few of the aspects (like the specification of whether or not is something is a youtube or danbooru link), I see some strong potential for overlap in your division of the videos/ links for "Crossovers," "Fanmade Videos", "Alternative Stories", "Remixes and Covers", and "Others." In fact, I already see how some of the videos already there could easily belong more to just one of those categories. For example, aren't all of these videos under community content fan-made videos, not just the ones under "Fan-made Videos" And can't some of the videos under "Remixes" belong under "Crossovers" as well (like the Kamen Rider arrangement), and vice-versa? Plus, there is no acknowledgement of how some of the links (like the Star Wars/Madoka mash-up and the Magical Index remix) hit dead-ends. In the end, it could get difficult for users to think of where to exactly put their videos... I know there's some bias on my part, but I sincerely do feel that much of what's in place currently is already very streamlined while also allowing room for some flexibility of classification (particularly in my "Miscellaneous" section). Animerican-Redeemed 21:31, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
It only natural that overlaps occur. But I believe it is better to give in to a little bit of ambiguity in order to have a proper classification and division. With fanworks increasing, a misc section simply isn't able to handle it: it is already way overcrowded for proper navigation, and it will only increase.
I believe an AWOL section isn't needed, a (dead link) notice besides the link should suffice. BrickBreak 22:00, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
No objections. Although someone should go through both versions to make sure we didn't lost a few videos in the process. Prima 22:06, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Alright, a few quick questions about the new layout, then, if it really is to stick: within each subdivision of the categories under "parodies", are the newest ones to placed at the top or bottom? Or is the order pretty free overall? (By the way, apologies if I sounded anal earlier... looking at the whole of the reconstructed media page, it comes more streamlined than I thought it would be.) Also, about the whole "Others" section... couldn't its present content, the Wrestling mod and the Mahou Sentai OP Parody, just be put into the "Crossovers" category? Animerican-Redeemed 22:31, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Answering to a bit everyone:
  • I made the classification of the videos before you (ani-redeemed) made them here, and without actually seeing the changes made here, so it's only natural both pages aren't the same. I'm not eager to keep my own sectionning, so if you think another method is more relevant, feel free to change it
    • The section's name is what I came up with on the moment. "Fanmade videos" isn't explicit enough indeed, but I didn't really see anything more fitting...
    • ... and the "Others" section is basically where to put videos when you don't know where they belong. I didn't have the time to watch all of them so I made my ordering based on the descriptions only; they may be misplaced indeed.
    • If you think a link would fit better in another section, feel free to change it. Same goes with sections and everything in fact. It's still a wiki page (even though it's in my personal namespace for now), so do what you like with it :)
  • Regarding the ordering, I just copypasted the links from here and made them into tables, so I didn't change it. I suppose they should be ordered by date, newest first, or maybe by topic? Anyway, that's a pretty subjective criterion, so feel free to change it as you like
  • Same remark regarding dead links. I just copypasted the links from here (before Animerican-Redeemed refactored the page) so I didn't check them. I just removed one link from the fangames 'cause I noticed it was dead when taking the screenshots. We should probably check the links, and comment the ones that are dead indeed.
  • I also tried to keep my page up-to-date, i.e. reflecting the changes there. Better check once again before refactoring, but normally there shouldn't be too much things missing.
That's it. I hope I didn't forget anything in my answer. --Homerun-chan 08:03, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
No further questions/remarks? If so, I'll do the moving tomorrow or something. If nobody answers by then, I'll probably keep my layout, and find a way to archive this page, so that if you find the other sectionning method more relevant we can change it easily --Homerun-chan 18:22, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Wait, why do we still have this? With the Fanworks, Teasers, this page is completely superfluous. --BrickBreak 11:00, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

It is, it was kept here for archiving purposes when migrating to the new structure. Might be deleted now that the new pages are well established --Homerun-chan 15:03, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
Seriously though, what the hell is Media still doing here? the fanworks page is more updated and more organized. This page might confuse those who might try to add more Games/Videos/Etc. to the site. MochaCoffee 03:36, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Right, I completely forgot about this. Gonna delete it now (which means you probably won't see this answer but whatever) --Homerun-chan 10:09, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
