I'll check on your question S92 and get back to you. I assumed everyone could see the history.
I guess we're meaning the same, but talk at cross purposes.I was referring to the quality of the article as well, and you can't expect the articles for all games to be as well-written as the current ones. What happens when we review an old beat'em up for instance? We will write "This game contains a female protagonist and each of your opponents can throw a punch and a kick" ... and that's about it. Because there is nothing more to write. And I thoroughly disagree with the phrase in bold. Whether you have something worth mentioning or not, every game with ryona elements must be written in the list, not just for the sake of completion (which is reason enough for me) but also for the reason you yourself stated later in your post : Our tastes in ryona are so different that someone else might love the game which you decided not to write an article about. It's evident that extremely short articles are a one-way street for a wiki like this.
Either you're not talking about the "thread rating system", or I still haven't understood how it's supposed to work.I thought it obvious that the rating will not judge the quality of ryona since that's pretty much impossible, and also harmful as you stated. It can, however, rate its quantity. Even if the possible attacks are listed in the game's description, they should still appear in this main list, for that will make it infinitely more helpful. If someone, for example, is looking for games which include lots of female characters, it will be very easy for him to find them if we use quantity suffixes, but it will be hell for him if he has to open each and every game's description to find them.
In case it helps to solve the issue, I don't see a tab with "history" next to "edit", "watch" etc. if it should be there.I'll check on your question S92 and get back to you. I assumed everyone could see the history.
I guess I missed the word "currently" :p And we do have different opinions on this, as I don't see any reason why anyone who knows of a game with ryona should not insert it into the list ; even if he doesn't have the time to write an article, someone else will. And I'd much rather have 500 game names that 100 game names in the list (the number of the articles is obviously the same in both cases) , the more the better, it's not like they are harming anybody. Plus it lets people who like to search out their own games (as opposed to relying on reviews) the incentive to do so.You seem to have missed the sentence after the bolded one; I didn't say that games with limited quantity of ryona content should not be added in the main list, but that currently we should concentrate more on creating articles about games already in the list, not adding just names to the list. Maybe we're having different opinions here, but imo a list with 100 game names and 10 are described more detailed in an extra article is for most people more helpful than a list with 500 game names and 5 extra articles.
I'm trying to address the issue Clan mentioned in the text I quoted, that there should be a distinction between games with several female characters with lots of ryona-inducing moves each and those with one female character with minimal interaction. That's why I'm proposing a suffix that will rate the quantity of ryona inside each game. The former will be "Good quantity" games , the latter "Barely passable" games.Either you're not talking about the "thread rating system", or I still haven't understood how it's supposed to work.
What you describe is pretty much the same what I meant with "suffixes for popular kinds of ryona".
I'm not sure what you mean by (no ryona) (other than there's no ryona at all?). Blade Kitten does have ryona, just not that great lol. I remember Sacred 2 had some too.My summer holiday has officially begun! I'm going to edit some of the older articles that need editing and also write few new ones. Anyway, I was going to suggest that in future article writer would add his own rating of the game X into the article, and other people could use the thread rating tool to give their opinion. Grade could be 0-5. This is because it would be too hard to make such calculations that Mardidion suggested. I hope that we could get somekind of rating to every game we have wiki articles for.
I have added ratings for two articles for example: Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and The Bouncer. You can look at those articles and then me your opinion.
EDIT: For games with no ryona I have not made an article but just added "(no ryona)" after the game's name in the list. Thoughts?
Oh I see. Well on the top of my head, I remember seeing a video of sacred 2 with some damage voices(very little or maybe I was hearing things ;/) but it was a long time ago so I can't say for sure, I might check later.(no ryona) is my solution to deal with ryona games that have so little/nonexistent ryona, that it is not worth writing article about them. I remember that in Sacred 2 characters where just standing like statues when receiving beating (i'm not sure if they even had damage voices). There was no pain animations at all, and when health redused to zero, they just suddenly collapsed.
