English Wiki?

#1NemhyPosted 12/6/2008 4:11:35 PM
Now that CB is out in NA, is there an English wiki being made?
#2Sundive101Posted 12/7/2008 10:10:55 PM
Yes. And they're all terrible. No information on them. Or it's all the same info they stole from each other. They have a basic walk through for the acts (main story quests) and fusion charts but no side quests, no info on demons (Like which demon gets what ability), etc.

The best part is how terribly translated it is. It's like someone who speaks French decided to take the Japanese wiki, rip it off and made an english version. Nothing like reading a sentence in frenglish ("Throw me down the stairs my coat." Or "I went to get my shoes and I opened the closet door and there they were, gone!")

I had to read that second example twice before I noticed the error. Do I fail at English?

Would it be possible for people to post all the english Wikis they're aware of for Imagine, please? Terrible or not, it'd be nice to have a list of what's out there.

For that matter, if it's not too much of a threadjack, what Japanese wikis are there? I only know of two:
http://imagine.gkwiki.com/
and
http://wikiwiki.jp/imagine/

Are there more?

Looking around further, I found two english wikis:
http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Megami_Tensei_Online:_IMAGINE
and
http://dbdb.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/index.php?title=DBDB:Megami_Tensei_IMAGINE_inter-klan_mainframe

The wikia one has a cleaner look and is more recently updated, but the dbdb one has different info and a list of the upcoming Moon Phases....

Also ran into another Japanese wiki:
http://ahirukumi.thick.jp/imagine/

Any others?

I personally hate wikia wikis just for the amount of ADs it have.

I would have suggested about starting a wiki ourselves if it wasn't for the fact that the game itself is in Engrish. = = (Please don't tell me this is perfect English. http://i36.tinypic.com/205unpj.jpg )

All the english wikis are trash. Little to no actually useful information, it's laughable really. Of the japanese wikis gkwiki is my favorite, though they tend to be a bit slow to update when things are changed or for temporary events.

This site:
http://artifact.sakura.ne.jp/imagine/

Is highly useful as well.

Well, I know I don't want to work on a Wetpaint wiki... such a dumb and slow editing interface....

Miyuki, what do you mean about ADs on wikia wikis? I took a look and didn't notice any advertisements. Or does the AD stand for something else?
And yeah, the translation quality throughout what little I've seen of the game so far... it's sub-amateur. It's just bad. *sigh* Hopefully that'll get cleared up over the beta.

#13: Wow, the lookup multitool on the artifact site is fantastic!

One more english wiki:
http://mto.diabolicalsys.net/index.php?title=Main_Page
The player skill page has some more detail than the wikia scratchpad in a few cases, less in others.....


So, we've got
http://imagine.gkwiki.com/
http://wikiwiki.jp/imagine/
http://ahirukumi.thick.jp/imagine/
http://artifact.sakura.ne.jp/imagine/
in Japanese, and

http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Megami_Tensei_Online:_IMAGINE
http://dbdb.digitaldevildb.com/wiki/index.php?title=DBDB:Megami_Tensei_IMAGINE_inter-klan_mainframe
http://mto.diabolicalsys.net/index.php?title=Main_Page
in English.

And (obviously) the FAQs here. Is that really it? Hunh.

I've been to a few other wikia wikis with advertisements. Not sure if it's just those though, since I tend to stay away from the site as soon as I see the word "wikia" in the URL nowadays.


I still stand by starting our own wiki if Aeria actually polish up their so-called translation, since I don't wanna do the translation for them.
