  • Hi, I've been trying to update the featured article each month and I was considering on changing the featured video monthly as well. Does it matter which video is featured? I mean I should most definitely try to avoid spoilers as much as possible for newcomers. Could interesting cutscenes and/or gameplay videos be featured (like rare cutscenes that aren't major spoilers) rather than just trailers?

    • As revealed in a free quest conversation with Megumi Mishima that the editor may have missed in their playthrough, is that Megumi's mother Fusayo Mishima allows her to keep the kitten at her house. That's why the kitten disappears from the shrine when Ryo works at the harbor.

    • In Shenmue II, the only time the kitten is mentioned is during a cutscene with Fangmei Xun when Ryo airs out the books. He says how her eyes look like the cat.

  • Hi, long time no talk. Sorry for being absent so long! I just have to say good call on the Gender Status on the Yuan page. I was considering on doing this myself but never did! As of late, I've cleaned up some articles that needed some attention and added some redirect pages that should have been there before, like Lishao Tao for Xiuying Hong.

    • Welcome back! Managing the wiki has been easy since the series isn't that popular. And no need to be sorry, it's all volunteer work.

      Just trying to help out the wiki with what I can. I only have vague memories of beating the first game a loooong time ago. I've never played the second (just done a ton of research on it), and am waiting for the first two games to be remastered, and for 3, of course.

    • Yes, I've noticed some of the Ryo Hazuki quotes were inaccurate so I fixed them and added some more iconic quotes. Luckily I'm so obsessed with the series that I know so much about it.

    • Some of the quotes seem a bit unnecessary, like "A capsule toy. $5 each" and ""Security guards! I can't let them catch me!"

      Then again, I based off the ones I added since I find this hilarious:

      Quotes sections are usually for most memorable quotes. Think we can tone it down a bit?

        Loading editor
    • Yes ok. I think the capsule toy quotes from Shenmue I should still be kept as they are very iconic and memorable.

  • Hi Shepherd, Sorry for my long leave of absence. I'm back and am editing again. Is there any chance you could make the infobox images for Ine Hayata, Smith Bradley and Tony Abrams have transparent backgrounds? I think that would look better for the pages if that's possible.

    Thanks!

  • Hey man, I'm back to editing on the wiki and fixing the infoboxes and all that.

    I have a quick question, would it work if the featured videos are gameplay videos / cutscenes? Or is it better with it being promotional videos or trailers?

    Personally, I feel both would be good because there are a lot of obscure scenes in the games that many people may not know about that I mentioned in the articles. And whenever a new trailer for Shenmue 3 comes out that could be a featured video too.

  • Hi, I think the character infoboxes should be updated to include spaces to list their D.O.B., Blood type, zodiac sign, height and weight, since this information is available for every Shenmue character.

  • I know that Ren Wu Ying is the Chinese style of his name and that would definitely be written as Wuying Ren westernized plus it's spelled like that in English Shenmue II.

    However, the official English Shenmue III website now officially writes it as Ren Wuying. So now because of this being official and the fact that many sites spell it like that I wonder if the page's name should be changed to match how it's currently officially written. Plus the fans commonly know him as just Ren so the page would be easier to find written that way. What are your thoughts?

    • I'd stick to Wuying Ren for now since it's Shenmue 2 canon. If Shenmue 3 uses Ren Wuying, then we can change it to that, but for now, I see no point.

      Official websites can still make mistakes, and they're rarely edited by the game devs themselves.

    • Alright I understand.

      I believe I have renamed all the Shenmue II character pages to westernized style. And we agreed that the Shenmue I Chinese characters will stay in Chinese style because that's how it's officially written in the English text.

      Also I was working on a collection datasheet for all the toy capsules in the games like this Shenmue/Collection Datasheets because I figured it was unnecessary to create a page for every toy like Akira 1, Akira 2, etc. it just seemed like spam. Then again they are items though and there's a page for every item. You think I should continue the datasheet or make a separate page for all the toys?

    • Datasheet :)

        Loading editor
    • Yeah that sounds better.

      Probably just make the toy capsule pages redirects to the datasheet.

  • I wouldn't mind changing the featured article regularly.

    How often should it be changed?

      Loading editor
    • About once every 1-2 months, usually. Although if the wiki seems abandoned, it doesn't really matter.

  • There are some Chinese characters that appear in Shenmue I, but are never mentioned or appear again in the series. They are listed in Chinese style in the subs and dialogue like Xia Xiu Yu and Wang Guang Ji. Should those stay in Chinese style since that's how their names are officially written in the English version?

  • Is there a template on here that's a small box where you can add text?

    I think for on the bottom of a page where it says for example-

    "An image gallery is available for Ryo Hazuki."

    I think that text should be in a template box. Most wikis that have separate gallery pages do that and I feel it would look much neater that way.

  • I like those new infobox renders and the whole new wiki layout in general. Did you make them or did you find them somewhere?

    If you did make them, could you make an infobox render for Hong Xiu Ying, Nozomi Harasaki  and Chen Gui Zhang too since they are major characters?
