Hey Sondenise, so I've seen that some of the meguca pages don't have their illustrator listed. Would it be revelant to add them? Just asking before I make a mistake. boop Anon 02:53, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

:Yeah, it's been a little hard to keep up with them. If you could add them to the character pages I'd really appreciate it. And don't be scared to make changes. Just go for it! I tend to review all changes to the site and so long as it's a constructive change it's all good.

Hi! Thank you for your contribution. But may I ask why did you decided to blank Speculah pages? Thanks. -- 0x99 14:39, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

Couple of people have been discussing this on /meduka/ (this thread) that the wiki needs a clean up to look like a proper wiki, and speculah isn't exactly part of what's canon, but speculation that doesn't really fit considering all we know now and that it adds nothing but fanon. --The Witch's House 20:17, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

OK, got it. I think the best way if we want to cleanup the Wiki is probably to archive the whole Wiki as read only (e.g. as old.puella-magi.net or something) and start clean, probably importing stuff from the old wiki. What do you think in that case? (I think this discussion better be moved to Main Page?) - 0x99 16:26, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
I'm not too familiar with this process, are we gonna restart the wiki from scratch this way? The Witch's House 03:21, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I think that would be the best way. Old wiki would still be accessible in its current form (although read-only). Restructuring pages would be a lot easier that way, as current wiki is a mix of facts and speculation etc. Cost wise probably better as well as images belongs to old wiki can be dumped into bulk hosting. -- 0x99 06:13, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Agreed. I had at first tried to clean up the wiki so it was more standardized and streamlined across the board but page after page of speculah makes the wiki a proverbial rabbit's warren of pages and it's difficult to clean and keep what's relevant. If we archive this wiki and import/duplicate the main core of the pages to a new wiki that's been made from scratch it would definitely be easier to organize it from the beginning. Also, apologies if I went overboard on the cleanup. --Sondenise 06:08, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
Oh no, don't apologize. Your efforts are much appreciated! You're doing the Goddess's work! - Prima 06:22, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
Don't apologize. I know what you did of a good intent, and we're perfectly fine with it. :-) -- 0x99 07:14, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

Invite to Write for GamePress MagiReco

Hey Sondenise,

We been working together on the puella wiki for many years now, and I felt you're the ideal candidate to ask, so this is a personal invite to [write for the GamePress MagiReco site](https://magiarecord.gamepress.gg/) that I'm getting ready for the NA Launch.

Funny enough, I been involved with the Magica fandom even longer than with GamePress. GamePress really was a side project of mine for some mobile games that kind of took off. You can imagine how happy I was about the MagiReco announcement - finally seeing both halves of my life coming together like that!

Of course GamePress is going to cover MagiReco!

See the Job Listing more details, please consider applying for the MagiReco Content Writer position!

What I have in mind for you is to take care of the lore part of the site. You know your stuff, probably as well as anyone else in the international fandom. Who better to ask to write the lore background of every witch and magical girl, and get paid for it?

So how about it? Prima (talk) 18:04, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

PS: I checked in with User:0x99 before posting this.

Oh wow! This is incredible! I'd be more than happy to apply as soon as I've written those critical thinking prompts. This is a pretty golden opportunity to get paid doing what I already enjoying doing. Thank you for passing this information to me. Sondenise (talk) 06:15, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
You applying puts a big weight off my shoulders. Looking forward to your app! - Prima (talk) 15:26, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
PPS: the invitation extends to other puella wiki editors as well! I just really want to headhunt Sondenise for obv reasons!
I'd apply for it too if I could, but I know very little about MagiReco and how to play it exactly other than what's been translated and posted here on the wiki; I don't even have the game myself because I couldn't get it working on my phone for some reason (that and IRL priorities affecting me.) Good luck to Sondenise and anyone else applying though! It's damn good opportunity for sure. -The Witch's House (talk) 20:47, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
Alright, my application is in. Wish me luck! Sondenise (talk) 04:57, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Got it ^_^ Processing will start next week! - Prima (talk) 18:56, 7 June 2019 (UTC)

Magia Record Character Powers

So, I've noticed that a lot of the characters from Magia Record have been given powers stemming from their wishes (Ren Isuzu and Kako Natsume, for example), despite them not being explained in the main story or, to my knowledge, any personal stories. There are some exceptions, like Nanaka Tokiwa and Meiyui Chun, but I'm clueless about the rest.

I've seen these powers listed on other wikis, typically those focused on characters with superpowers and powers specifically, with the same wording used on this wiki - but without sources, it all feels like unsupported guesswork (which is supported by this wiki using the same language as the others, which makes me think those wikis created headcanons that someone copied and pasted here).

If you can confirm these powers and help provide sources/explanations to their pages, I would greatly appreciate it, because I'm at a complete loss. --Garr9988 (talk) 06:30, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

That information comes from the Magia Archive Volume 1 book I believe. -The Witch's House (talk) 06:40, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

They are also demonstrated in chaper 10. NepetaLeijon27 07:47, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

The powers listed come from the MagiReco Archive Volume 1. It's the same page that has the rest of their biography information, such as height, age, and what school they go to. Someone made a scan of the book and I posted the pages to their respective character. Sondenise (talk) 16:46, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

Oh, thank you both very much! It would be nice if anyone could properly translate all the pages into English for reference though, do you know if there's any progress in that front? --Garr9988 (talk) 19:16, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

I know someone either started or finished scanlating the book since I stumbled across a single page. No idea on who or what or where though. Sondenise (talk) 21:18, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

References to Kenji Miyazawa

The amount of references to Night on the Galactic Railroad and the rest of Kenji's works in Magia Record are kind of making me crazy. I just want to make a separate page of literature references in Magia Record in general by now. --NepetaLeijon27 07:53, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Go for it! I agree, it is a lot of references. I'll add to it as needed. But probably a page for Kenji's works would be better since there are one or two references to works of his besides Galactic Railroad. maybe one page with "Railroad" as one header and then another header that says "other works by kenji"?

Magia Record Anime vs Game Character Pages

Given that the anime now exists, and all the significant changes to both the plot and characterizations (like Yachiyo not testing Iroha or being so offensively against her coming to Kamihama, or the much smoother relationship between Yachiyo and Momoko), I think it's worth making separate pages for the anime versions of the Magia Record cast, and rename their game pages in line with those of the other canon characters (eg. "Madoka Kaname in Magia Record"). This will allow us to cover the differences in their personalities and the plot in general. --Garr9988 (talk) 03:59, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

It's either that or append each character page to include "in the anime" the same way the character pages for the original quintet are setup. For example, Madoka has a single character page that has a different section for each media format since a lot of her biography info would be redundant. A section for wraith arc, rebellion, the PSP game, etc

I would get the pages going but I am swamped just trying to keep up with the basic anime episode pages and the game itself. But if you feel up to the task then create the pages and I'll help setup the section under charactersSondenise (talk) 07:41, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
