What's on your mind?
And before you guys react, hear me out first.
I've been thinking this for a while since Slush Invaders Series is been on a hiatus for a looooooong time. This and the sister wiki, Fanon, is pretty dead and we have very few or nothing left to contribute in our main articles here. Our respective series are exception of course and we'll get to that later.
This wiki has been standing for almost five years in Wikia and we get a lot of recognition on its first year in a few months. We know what happens next, the "Great Depression" (as I dubbed it) and Gildey released prequels like Slush Invaders: Duel and Slush Tile Rush, in 2013 and 2014, respectively. These animation and game somehow lifted our community spirits up and went downhill in a short while. We also came into a conclusion that Canon and Fanon articles here should be on the Fanon wiki originally created by Mart456t and was deleted by the Wikia staff because of its idleness. I decided to create another one and I want credit it to him since it's his original idea we didn't acknowledge in the first place (again, sorry Mart).
Most of us know, (yes including you idle users and anons), that Gildedguy has other animations like Gildedguy vs Jade and Basement Busk that we can relate to Slush Invaders but its heavily focused on Gildedguy/Stick Michael himself. Additionally, we have a few sets of characters to add yet. I'm also including his other unfinished games that are posted upon his site... and don't forget his artworks are pretty shiny (pun intended cuz of Gildey's armor and art and Moana's "Shiny" song :3). All I'm saying is let's make this a Gildedguy community instead of just Slush Invaders community because, for me, that's only a small portion of his community that doesn't get enough attention nowadays.
I have conflicting thoughts about converting this wiki to Gildedguy Wiki (yes, including the Fanon Wiki) and I'm not sure if you guys are fine with it. I don't want to transfer our articles again just like the one happened in Fanon wiki and we're all gonna start to zero if that happen again. If it does happen, we' have to organize our categories a bit and leave a few tweaks because I can tell our wiki still need a few edits on some major articles.
Also, I'm not saying that we "erase" our memories here but, at the same time, I don't want it to just fade away just because this wiki doesn't get enough attention it needs. I know we lost a lot of users carelessly all these years; some disappeared without a trace, some said their sour goodbyes and some are... just trolls who don't deserve a life. Though some of us wildly appear from real life and welcome them warmly.
For my family from 2012 and onwards, I know we have been through a lot... and we owe Gildedguy for creating Slush Invaders Series and I want to return him a favor by flourishing his community, our community. If majority of you guys agree with this, I'll contact the Wikia Staff immediately to change its name and make another progress. If not, please don't be afraid to voice out your opinion because I really need to hear it.
Ayoo, everyone in the Slush Invaders Wiki!
It's 2017 now and you know what that means?
A new year filled with all sorts of new things for all of us to look forward to; new beginnings, new friends, new experiences, new times, new possibilities... and also new screw ups to also expect to be unexpected.
Any things to say for this year?
I honestly can't believe it even though I was looking forward to it but guys... we did it!
The wiki has been up for 4 years now.
Can you even believe it? :D
I can't say anything apart from I'm very happy and proud that we're all still together after 4 years. It's been a good run so let's keep going at it, shall we? The wiki is now 4 years old. We've all been with each other for 4 years. We've had a lot of stuff. things happen in 4 years and even now after those we're still here!
So to commemorate such an occassion (and yes, I know it's a bit late; 4 days late actually --- what a coincidence!) what do you guys think we should do to celebrate 4 years of still being here? Put your suggestions below and thoughts about this wonderful topic! Let's keep it up and head for 5 years... even if the series is currently on hold, we'll just have to wait for Gildedguy (finally said his name right, lol) to put updates on the series soon and think positively that the Slush Invaders series is still alive and going!
With that... let's also stay alive and keep going onward... together, like always! :)
Happy 4 years Slush Invaders Wiki and everyone!
I love you all~
Yes, I'm referring to all of you; Fan, Drew, Thomas, Skp, Khen, Seth, Darkfire, Light, Chak, Stenry, Shaden, FlameSword, Uno, Munna, Scott, Noriel, Lucas, Alec, James and even you, Ultra. Myself included (just out of self-humor and convenience; Vince).
It's been about a year since we've had anything major in the wiki; major updates, major discussions, major threats, major events and even major randomness (the current randomness is, to be honest, on a stale level).
And since we've all taken way too much time just standing by and doing nothing in our lives here in the wiki we are (no, we aren't gonna quit; shut your mouth and sit down) gonna do some major things around the wiki to actually keep it on a clean place; where the wiki is currently at is not considered clean --- it's literally a mess (yes, I know I could just do that myself with all my "free time", but let's me put this here first --- I'm about to take summer school soon out of a hunch that I failed one of my subjects this semester; so that takes away yet more time in my life from what I should be spending it on (E.G: Like being here in the wiki and at the K-On! Wiki), so screw that).
So start of this (soon to be forgotten and ignored anyway) thread that I just [hopelessly] created, let me sum it all up into different sections that we all have to (yes, ALL of us have to; it's time you take part yet again in [hell] wiki activities) do in the wiki to improve to say the least (just out of a better or simpler word to say; yes, I'm being bossy and stupid again --- deal with it).
Alright, but first, sit your butts down on whatever surface you are currently reading this on, pay attention, keep your focus on this (unless you're brain-dead) and just (for goodness sake) bear with this and read it thoroughly:
Seriously, we need new templates around the wiki. The current templates are now atrocious. They may not to you and others, but to me, they are. They just are. They are seriously horrible now than before.
With that [honestly] said, we need new ones that are just good enough so that they aren't considered really horrible. I've also had this idea that we should create new ones that differ in category; character templates and user specific templates. This way, we don't have to use the same templates in the [more or less] same type of characters, items and locations within the Slush Invaders series (this also includes anything else that Michael/Gilded creates).
Templates which I will exemplify would be as such:
Character-specific templates must be in different colors, depending on their roles in the series; a character that is among the Slush Fighters, among the Invaders or among other unknown factions. The way we do this is differentiating the colors of their infoboxes; green for the Fighters, blue for the Invaders and yellow for other characters without any specific group (Limes are included into this).
Boss type characters will have to be red due to obvious reasons.
Meanwhile, user specific templates are on an optional customization place; meaning that those who wish to create their own specific template for their own are on their own for this but can ask for help if they need to.
If somebody can be helpful enough to voluntarily customize the templates we already have in the wiki into the ones that I just exemplified, that would be wonderful!
They look awfully arranged. It's like some typhoon came by and just messed up the whole category in every single page around the wiki.
Alright, let's get down to the real thing here. We have to redo all of them properly. We really REALLY have to. How? That is simple: Remove a category that really is unneeded and does not fit whatever page it is on.
Example: Stickyle's page has these categories in his page; Slush Fighters, The Movie, Auto Fighters, Upgraded Standard Fighters, The Game, Ultra attack fighters, Slush Defenders, Slush Invaders Characters, Slush fighters that uses fire, Elemental Attacker, Fighters who change their icons, Not-playable Slush Invaders Characters, Non-affecting Fighters, Fighters who do not use weapons, Th (what even?), Melee Fighters, Starting Fighters, Unlocked in regular mode, Slush Tile Rush and Original Articles.
Seriously? To make this short, the categorizes that I mentioned that are italized must be removed; they are literally inappropriate and insignificant to Kyle's page. The one's that I did not italize can stay because they fit into his page fine.
Regarding others with the same problem (more or less), remove the categories that don't fit in and leave out the ones that are significant to the page (in this example for every Slush Fighter-specific character; leave the categories Slush Fighters, Slush Invaders Characters and Slush Tile Rush in their pages.
Simple explanation enough?
Need I say more?
We need to do a daily or weekly round in the wiki to inspect any spams, grammar errors, unneeded information or just to keep the wiki safe (like a patrol in this case).
Continuing with what I said about infoboxes in the templates, we need to double check the infoboxes in the wiki and properly put what is necessary into the pages they are put in.
Only put in information that is significant and has an actual relation to whatever or whoever's page it is on. Let's not complicate this any more than it should be. Simple task. Simple finish.
Weekly Wikia Rounding:
Same as the Extra Clean-Up duty I'll be giving everyone, but this one is a weekly thing.
Apart from me (who is active on a daily basis), we need people to go by the wiki once at the end of each week (Saturday) and to check the place out for any "inconvenience" and to keep it in proper order while the others are away doing...
Whatever the hell they are doing (I don't flipping know). Just one or two users (excluding me) who can make enough space in their busy schedule to go active in the wiki three times a day during the end of the week.
I can assign people who can, but those who can't can ask someone else to take their place for the time being. It may be an unnecessary thing, but just as a precaution, but we just need this. Trust me. We do.
Wiki Background Fix:
Simple question for this: Who can properly align the wiki's current background?
Whoever can take this up, big thank you!
User Page Inspection:
The same as going around the wiki to check for any "problems", but we need someone who can inspect every single active user to date's user pages for anything "suspicious" (no, I'm not referring to anything personally suspicious; don't look at me), just in the case that somebody might try to break the rules and test us by spamming around.
This is in the case for what happened with Thomas a while back; a new user came by whose name I will not even dare say bcuz reasonz and foolishly decided to deface Thomas' main user page by editing it saying "I like [censored]" (look up TRS' user page's history page for what he wrote on Thomas' page).
Right now, he is still blocked.
This is also just a precaution, just in case any [annoying] troll out there may arrive and try to spam on each of our user pages and the pages itself.
Home Page Update:
Somebody (specifically Fan) has to update the poll in the home page of the wiki.
It's been a year since Slush Tile Rush came out and if that poll isn't updated still, it will be about 2 years since that poll was up. Somebody has to change it. Along this, somebody has to change the featured image and featured page once every week. We may have a limited amount of images and pages in the wiki (since Slush Invaders isn't that much popular anymore; but have faith in it and Michael), but that's something we have to keep updated to add more show that this place is still active and so are its users.
So yeah. Not much to say about that apart from what I just mentioned we need to do about it.
Half of the Fanon pages in the wiki are still present and knowing full well that it was my job to delete every single one of them without needing to wait for all of you after the deadline (which was during January 12 of last year), I've decided to let those remain (referring to the remaining fanon pages that I haven't deleted) until the owners of those page remain and can move them to the Fanon wiki.
And speaking of the Fanon wiki...
About the Fanon Wiki:
With the uprise of inactivity of users lately (being similar to the, I quote Fan-Fan, "Great Depression" of 2013), even though the Fanon wiki is now up for users to do their fan made pages there and keep on doing them there so that they won't interfere with the activities here in the main wiki, it seems that there have now been less activity than before.
A similar situation happened during 2013, but luckily went away by the time a dozen users joined and helped rose back the wiki's stand to where it is now, however, where it is apparently falling from again.
I will having another discussion thread regarding the Fanon wiki in that wiki itself soon enough, likely some time by the start of April to add up convenience since Fan will become more active due to Summer coming along (at the cost of me suffering yet another On Job Training class and likely summer school too), since she is the current owner of that place and the fact that Chak, Seth and Bright will also be active once again by this time.
Any way, rest assured, I will be beginning a new discussion there soon.
With those out of the way for now, I'm hoping (though foolishly) that we can at least accomplish this right now, as in this year itself, without any faults or any more mistakes.
Keeping this place as active as it can, that's a personal objective that I have. A literal one at that. I am still keeping my word of not letting this place die so long as I'm still alive and guess what, I'm still breathing... so that practically means that the wiki is also standing.
I made that promise and I'm keeping it still. It's gonna be almost 4 years since the wiki has been standing and almost 4 years since we've all been together (though being drifted away due to personal reasons that I will not disclose).
I would like to not see the day that we all be separated forever due to complications, due to personal grudges or even hatred... and I would like to not see us all be torn apart. That is something that will indeed break half of my soul. I've been giving my time to this wiki because, I don't wait for time and I know for sure that time does not wait for me. I make time for the wiki.
I make time to do whatever I want to do. Do whatever I need to do.
I make time to make things right... and maybe even make things wrong... or better or worse...
I make time because I know I can make it. But maybe I can't and I'm just being too naive for my own good. Or that I'm just talking nonsense.
But here is something I do know.
I make time because I want to. I want to make time to spend it on certain things. Doing my artworks, continue progressing my series, continue my other works in here, the Fanon wiki, the SF wiki, Dimitri's wiki, the Date A Live wiki, the K-On! wiki, the Gochiusa wiki and on the Metal Slug wiki.
I make time because I believe that I can make time for myself and make time to hang out with the people that I know certainly in myself that I consider close to me to the point that I consider them family, and as such, would not even think or dream about NOT spending a day without at least one of them. And that's you guys. There was never a day that I would not be here, never a day where I wouldn't try to gain your attention just to talk with me, never a day that I wouldn't try to act as though I didn't want to be teased so that you guys can do the opposite and never a day that I would imagine my life without any of you.
That has never happen nor will it ever happen.
You guys are a part of my life now. And that is an official thing for me. That may be something stupid and highly ambitious, but I honestly don't care.
Once someone or something has become close to me, they become a part of who I am. That is my life essentially. And losing those parts of me is like slowly dying in an even more painful way than what one could imagine as being the worst experience of death.
To put it bluntly; I care about you guys. Even though I may sound rude for the most time, that's just to show myself as being... well... me. I've explained this enough already as to why I do this and I know that you all remember why.
Ending this thread, let's try to make this discussion a major thing this year in our wiki's history. Let's try to accomplish something together for once.
So yeah, let's get a move on, fellas!
So recently, I beat The Skunk for the second time in Slush Tile Rush and I encountered Overly Zealous Blue in Solarise.
I don't know if you saw it already or not, but he uttered an interesting new quote (which I put on his page) that could really lead to something:
"LONG LIVE BIG BROTHER BLUE!"
Do you suppose this means...?
Let's make the wiki a bit festive for Halloween. If some of you can, I'd like someone to take a few snapshots from the 2012 Slush Invaders Bored Pre-loaders. Michael posted a compilation video of all of the pre-loaders on his YouTube account.
I'd do it, but as well as we all know, I'm carrying you all... and it's far too long enough, so it's time you all walk on your own and give me some rest for now. I'd appreciate it if some of you can take at least a few minutes of your own "precious" time to atleast contribute more often than you should. I know that there's not much to do around the wiki, but are you guys really sure that there's literally not much to do here?
I've seen numerous grammar errors, irrelevent and uneeded information and just plain... spammage...
I'd take care of them, but I've done my part... MORE than just MY part. I've some of all YOUR parts for YOU, and did I ask for anything return? No. This is the first time I'm asking you all to contribute as of now.
Any images from the Halloween Pre-loaders will do, even a set will be good enough. We need to change the theme of the wiki. I'll change the text glow effect to something more Halloween-related. This may not be necessary, but I ain't asking for your debate. I'm asking for cooperation here. That's not an impossible thing to give, isn't it?
If you've got any objections, then bring out your "Phoenix Wright" and yell "OBJECTION" at me if you wish to do so...
For now, I'm just gonna sit and go around the wiki with Lucas/MW and just talk with him.
Have a good Tuesday... it's bad enough for me already, so why don't you all enjoy yourselves? I'll talk to you all later...
Yeah, for a long time, I've been thinking.
Concerning the Area pages. Their head images are from gameplay, instead of just a representation of the level's image from the "Map".
So to speak, I'm gonna edit out the Area pages and properly sort it out. If there is anything "screwy" or "out of place" after I edit them, I'd like someone to take charge of clearing out those mistakes for me.
For now, I only have about like 5 - 13 hours in the wiki until July, because, after my training is done, I'll only have about 1 - 3 hours of time to spend here each day... or worst. Which is less than that.
So while I'm still as active as I am now, I'm gonna start double timing everything and try to make sure things are good before my new schedule at our Campus REALLY brings down my time that's supposed to be spent here... and animating... and drawing... and... other... stuff. things... you get the picture.
But anyway, I'm gonna have to take my studies a bit seriously now (about just 5 - 15% serious, which is like 20% in total, lol) and, if I happen to break my "Ongoing activity" here in the wiki, which is like almost 200 days now, I'm gonna divide my responsibility to 4 - 6 different users here. As, well, I know you guys are taking things a bit more smoothly and accordingly, but what worries me is that, by the time I begin to spend less and less time here, things are gonna go down hill a bit... and I don't want that. But I have faith in all of you. That's for sure.
I'm just concerned that, you guys might start a few things that's not suppose to begin here and there, then afterwards come to a massive breakdown that could seriously injure all of our ties together and break us apart.
Which is one of the things that I fear happening.
But anyway, for now, just keep it safe, calm and collected. Keep things going smoothly, accordingly and greatly. Keep being friendly and warm to each other. Prevent arguments and other misunderstandings. Try to stand together as a whole, not by pieces.
Stay Positive, be yourself and Keep it Going!
i have felt very alone on this wiki ever sence the stkhen thing happened... and school is starting so that adds to the lonelyness basicly...i need to know if i can have a hug/cuddle... (que facepalm... yeah i still make horible jokes THATS STICKIN TO ME!) *lies in bed*
