I'm debating putting up the manga series that goes with the mobile game, but I'm not sure if I should put up the Japanese only ones, scanlations, or both. And secondly, should they go in their own gallery page since there's at least 18 pages so far? Sondenise 20:15, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

I think they should be on the page rather than a separate gallery. Maybe see about putting the japanese and scanlation pages together side by side if you can? -- The Witch's House 01:23, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
Scanlation-only should be fine, we have pages like that already. Great job with the page so far, User:Sondenise, by the way! - Prima 03:36, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Should we start an english menu/gameplay guide on this wiki?

I know that the Madoka online game which rests forever beneath us had a menu and gameplay guide of the sorts on this wiki, but I'm not sure how long that took to compile. I was hoping that if anybody knew if there was another place where this was happening, they could post it or create one here. Lord Fawful 01:13, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Some are already floating around. There's also first story translated, during which you fight a single witch. Homuhomu 19:04, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
I would love if we did this - the one for PMMM online was like my bible. Mimihamburger 00:53, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the links, I've been looking for one for a while. I don't know Japanese so I suppose that we just wait for someone to make something more concrete than a few translated photos, especially with new gachas and skills etc. Lord Fawful 02:31, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
If it doesn't exist by the time I manage to get everything in the game set up, I'll do something. Maybe a Quick Start page linked prominently from the main page, and two more pages for in-depth gameplay and for translated storylines? The only hard parts of setting up Madoka Online stuff were translating the Japanese and finding reports about actual errors people ran into and how they worked around them.

the new subreddit is making a lot of translating progress. - Prima 09:22, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

God damn, thank you! Now I can update and add some images. Big question for you guys; are these the accurate names of the new girls? --The Witch's House 06:44, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
There's some hiragana on the Japanese gamerch and appmedia sites, like https://magireco.gamerch.com/%E7%B4%94%E7%BE%8E%E9%9B%A8 and http://appmedia.jp/magireco/938556 (ใกใ‚…ใ‚“ Chun instead of Chen) and while looking for a voice line I saw the same hiragana in a video of the game UI: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gt47LtKlpR4 The JP wikis seem to be copying the in game profile text too. KM 13:08, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
I just checked with the character screen and they seems to be accurate. -- 0x99 14:29, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
I'm currently finalizing the new wiki setup, what would you think if we have separate wiki instance for Magireco gameplay? (But with shared accounts, assets, etc. with the main wiki pool, in similar way that Wikipedia/Wikipedia Commons/Wiktionary etc. works). -- 0x99 08:56, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
Mmmmm, there's already an English wiki for MagiReco. Seems a bit redundant, unless I'm missing something.Universalperson 10:38, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
Oh, well, I can never quite get Wikia to load fast enough, so I thought it might be good idea if we could provide a wiki hosting if someone want to do it, or something. -- 0x99 14:39, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
I'm not sure what all the implications would be or if it would matter if it's a separate instance, as long as we can use images from and links to the non-magireco stuff just as easily, and the accounts are the same with no permissions issues. As for wikia, that whole site sucks and it's not a coincidence that so many games have independent wikis splitting off, often on bad terms with wikia administration. Magireco itself is unpredictable though, since they're already making us jump through hoops to play it and the future of the English community is unclear. KM 15:46, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

Crossover characters

I was wondering how we should set up the information for the crossover characters that already have their own respective character pages? I'm talking about the game information for say Madoka and Oriko. I was thinking of setting up a single page with all of the crossover characters listed and posting only the game info that's relevant rather than putting extensive character history and summaries since they already have that. I could post it under Magia Record Characters as "Crossover characters" and then backlink to them on their character pages

for example: For MagiReco game information see Madoka Kaname

or something like thatSondenise 20:51, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

Also, should I add the stats to each character's page? I'm talking about HP, ATK, and DEF at their initial, 2 star, 3 star, etc? Sondenise 20:51, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

I've really fallen behind the past two weeks. Well, stats have to go somewhere, and the character pages seem OK and leave lots of room for details. Stats pages for crossovers should have the same format as stats for new characters so it'll be consistent for players looking things up. If all the stats are going in individual character pages, there could be something like a "Madoka Kaname in MagiReco" page with the gameplay data and links back and forth to her main page. KM 08:20, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
Well so far I set it up on the Talk:Magia Record Characters page in similar format to the MagiReco character pages. I've also so far limited the gallery to just the game specific images like their different rarity cards and memoria cards. I'm just trying to figure out how to link it on the character page. Maybe a game chip currency icon or something? Break it up into individual links without an image? with an image? Sondenise 18:03, 16 September 2017 (UTC)
How about something like this added to Magia Record Characters below the original characters table and above the witches?
Magia Record Magical Girls from Other Media
MagiaRecord-Madoka-card 20014 f.png 110px 110px 110px 110px
Madoka Kaname Homura Akemi name1 name2 name3
And the title at the top of the table of new girls would become "Magia Record Original Magical Girls" and the page Madoka Kaname in Magia Record would be a copy/paste of her Talk:Magia Record Characters section. KM 06:54, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
I would like to suggest splitting up all of the character pages to have:
  • one page for factual game data: stats, material requirements, memoria etc (basically everything you can see in-game's for each character)
  • another page like the current character pages describing the character's history, involvement in the story and so on
They could be separated as Iroha Tamaki and Iroha Tamaki (Magia Record), with links at the top to switch between the two. Then it would also match your plans for Madoka and the rest. --Knon 22:11, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
