I removed some old stuff to clean up this page. Maybe from now on it can be used for general discussions about the wiki. What needs to be done, who wants to do what, etc. And also questions about wiki editing.

Template importing

If you want to import templates from Wikipedia, tell us here.

Imported Template:Nihongo, Template:Cite, Template:Cite_web. Yunabeco 15:45, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Imported a huge batch of templates, you can see them by checking the template namespace. This include the good old [citation needed]. Yunabeco 08:10, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Regarding Romanized Lyrics

It's spelled, said, and transliterated "romaji." There is no n in the japanese word, nor should there be one in English. Please do not use this common error, and correct it if you see it. Trance Blossom 01:23, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Also, anyone can add in romanized lyrics to any song that has the kanji. Just google "kanji romaji" and you should get a lot of results for converters. There will be a few cases where it will be wrong, but listening to the song before saving the page should allow you to hear any incorrect sounds. Trance Blossom 02:17, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Although make sure it adheres to the Romanization Standard. Trance Blossom 02:29, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Missing Lyrics and Quotes Translation

I have been noticing it for a time But Ninomiya Asuka's quotes aren't being translated at all and WOW! I NEED!! ~Singing Monkey Kashou Ken~ on THE IDOLM@STER LIVE THE@TER HARMONY 08 by Mami Futami also isn't translated.. Same is with other songs that have become old but still not translated....

We only really have two regular song translators and one dialogue translator (which is me), and I'm a full time student with a job so... Things will be left untranslated. I'm working hard, but I can't possibly do everything and expecting everything on the wiki to be fully translated is foolish. Sakuya (talk) 21:57, 2 October 2015 (CEST)

Sorry, I didn't meant to be rude....You work so hard to complete this wiki yet I was complaining,I will do my best to complete this wiki!! :)

Platinum Stars

I know Bamco hasn't revealed the game as such, but shouldn't PS be under 2nd Vision considering the character stats are consistent with the rest of 2nd Vision's? --Roadingu (talk) 16:29, 26 February 2016 (CET)

Delete Request

File:Chieri_SR14.jpg and File:Chieri_SR14+.jpg are overlapped with the SR13 set, maybe they should be deleted. However, I don't have the delete authority. Should I write this request in here? 緒方智絵里担当・SaberCF - Producer cont@ct - 10:24, 17 March 2017 (CET)

Ask your request to the wiki's admin User:Yunabeco. --ChocoCats (talk) 18:58, 17 March 2017 (CET)

Thany you! 緒方智絵里担当・SaberCF - Producer cont@ct - 20:56, 17 March 2017 (CET)

Main page clutter

The main page, as measured on a 1600px wide monitor, is 5556px in height with info boxes compressed. (Yes, I stitched together screenshots just to measure this. Yes, that's a stupid way to go about it.) As we've done in the past, it's probably time to rearrange elements for ease of reading. In my opinion, creating an "Official Album Listing" in the style of the Official Song Listing would effectively remove the majority of the bulk. Alternatively, album listings could be grouped by series, resembling THE IDOLM@STER SideM series. Transferring the lists to separate pages is something I could do without much fuss, so it wouldn't need to be a huge endeavor!

On a less immediate note: every main "branch" of the series has either an upcoming or actively updating game. Does anyone think it would be a good idea to add a section directing readers to pages on each branch's most recent large releases? Not something as comprehensive as the Current events page, but a quick header so that first-time visitors can immediately find relevant information. Tamaratan (talk) 22:22, 23 March 2017 (CET)

Hm. I agreed with creating an "Official Album Listing" page. Not too sure about the 2nd note, though. -- ChocoCats (talk) 02:15, 24 March 2017 (CET)

Upload Request
Perhaps newly registered account does not have permission to upload files? Hamon002 (talk) 16:12, 12 May 2019 (CEST)

Would someone mind doing me a favor then? Hamon002 (talk) 12:50, 12 June 2019 (CEST)

Hello. You answered your question. It's an anti-spam/bot thing. Anyways, I did it for you. Sorry for taking a while to do this. Thank you. --ChocoCats (talk) 22:25, 12 June 2019 (CEST)

Fixing ambiguous link in about section

Someone with the requisite edit privileges ought to change the link to THE iDOLM@STER in the main page's about section to THE iDOLM@STER (Arcade), since the former redirects to a disambiguation page. --GashaponDeReplay (talk) 05:21, 5 July 2020 (CEST)

Done. Arcorann (talk) 05:26, 6 July 2020 (CEST)

New Image Host

To save on disk space, I've (finally) moved all images over to Digital Ocean Spaces (storage service similar to Amazon S3) and installed an AWS extension to hook the wiki up to it for both uploads and downloads. (I'll spare you any further boring technical details and just say it wasn't nearly as simple as I had hoped)

What does this mean for you, the average user? Well, large image galleries should load much more quickly. Also, you should see images load from instead of now.

I've already tested new image uploads with it, but if any problems arise... Please do contact me on my Talk page or on Twitter (@oneletterK) immediately!

K (talk) 22:03, 28 June 2022 (UTC)

Okay, I've gotten some reports on long loads with "503 Slow Down" errors. Initial investigation reveals it could be either aggressive thumbnail creation in MediaWiki, or some service issues with Digital Ocean Spaces. Will continue looking into it. K (talk) 15:49, 13 July 2022 (UTC)

Other changes?

Hi!! I have started adding Million Live card cameos! I hope this is okay! I was also wondering, will we ever have a merch logging section? I have so much Ritsuko merch so i'd be able to help with her page!!♡ Also~ Is there a wiki discord? I'd love to join! Lots of love, Ivy!♡
