Hello Zaheerkarim. I noticed you have made several edits today, and I wanted to talk to you about them. I very much admire your enthusiasm, and your willingness to go that extra step and edit a template.
However, I am sorry to say I am not sure what the "status" entry in the character infobox actually adds. How is this a vital statistic? Yes we have some characters that are deceased, but this is already made clear on their articles. Then there is the issue of Oddities, which can not really be classified as alive or dead.
Would you be willing to explain your recent edits? Thank you.
Of course it may be clear on the artices. I am currently watching the anime I understand the story I will continue to investigate decide if oddities can classified Aive or Dead so far according to my investigation they can be aready dead because they aready dead like Oshino Shinobu she a vampire so basically she was aready dead from very beginning also Hachikuji Mayoi a ghost but same thing basically dead anything that is not human is call the living dead I classified Oddities dead unless you want me to change status to unknown for oddities. Also I'm trying to make it more neat and professional I hope this explain my reasoning. I going finish off the status and go to sleep it aready 4:32AM.
I am afraid you have not explained your reasoning, or at least not in a way I can understand.
The first thing you said was: "Of course it may be clear on the artices." Okay, if it is already clear in the articles, that brings me back to my original question. What does the "status" entry in the character infobox add?
Then you go on to say all oddities can be classified as dead, but what about the oddity characters that are alive? What about Black Hanekawa, who is one part deceased cat and one part living human? You talk about introducing the status "living dead", but I do not understand how that is supposed to make anything clearer.
EDIT: I see you have just edited the Yotsugi Ononoki, and labeled the character as deceased. Just off the top of my head, and I can think of several reasons why you could be right, and several reasons why you could be wrong. See, this is where the difficulties arise.
It seems to me that adding such a difficult to define thing as "status" to the infobox is only going to lead to confusion, and at worst, possible arguments. Do you see where I am coming from and why I am concerned?
I'm sure we can label every character either dead or alive if a character is half vampire it classified Alive if you still worryed I think it's best that you find the Creator get in contact with him if you want I can do unknown just for oddities and human alive or dead Ok.
First off, unless you have a way to get in contact with Nisio Isin, please do not suggest contacting him. It's a waste of time.
And you are still missing the point: "I'm sure we can label every character either dead or alive". Yes, we can label every character as something, but we cannot do so definitively. The wiki is based on fact, not conjecture.
Look, I really cannot in good conscience leave your edits be. I am going to undo them. If you are still convinced the information can be determined, is necessary, and improves articles, state your reasons why. I am not opposed to the change if you can convince me otherwise, but you have not done so yet.
Okay, it seems we are speaking at cross-purposes here. I will try to be as clear as I can.
1) What does "status" actually add to the articles? As you have said yourself, the articles already made it clear if a character was deceased, if that information was important.
2) Can characters be definitively labeled as either alive or dead? The Monogatari series is supernatural fiction. Characters quite frequently cross the line between life and death. Trying to stick a label on such a cast seems to me to be a fool's errand.
Finally, you are trying to add information to articles. That puts the burden of proof on you. I am sorry if you are upset that your edits were undone, but is not my job to vet your information. You have to do it for yourself.
Very well I state my reason the status show if the character if dead or alive or killed in action apart from monogatari series I have seen anime I watched. One day I was look for a new anime to watch and found one with high rating I did some research and found the website look at the characters template it show it status decased character which made me attempted to see the series I didn't read how he died I watch how he died it better that I just look on the template to get quick information I have had other people agreed with me I only add new informaiton that has been miss out or mentioned but not mentioned on the character template. I hope I made clear enough I know my english is not that good.
Zaheerkarim, forgive me, but I really am not sure what are you are trying to say. Are you talking about the Bakemonogatari Wiki or another site? Are you talking about Wikia at all?
As best I can tell, you are of the opinion that the character template should give a quick run down of important information. On that point, I agree with you. Where we do not agree on is whether a character's status as dead or alive is appropriate. I believe I have already explained why I think trying to add a status field is a bad idea. I am afraid though you still have not explained to me why you think it is a good idea.
If English is not your first language, I do not want to penalize you for that, but this is an English-language wiki. If you cannot explain yourself to an extent that other editors can understand you, then we are rather at an impasse.
your website has anime called gundam 00 on the one those character template show status dead or alive and the name of the character Kinue Crossroad you should take look if that anime has status why can't this anime have status I can't copy the character template paste it on this reply that why I'm asking take a look. I will do two more replys if you not convinecd than I will end the negotiation before it turn in to a war which now none of us don't want.
One more thing english is my first language most people understand me it my email that they find hard to understand.
All right, the Gundam wiki uses status on some of its articles. You do realize these two wikis are run by different people, yes? Fair enough. I assume the administrators of that wiki decided the information warranted being placed in the character infoboxes.
What of it? Gundam and Bakemonogatari are very different series. One is science fiction, the other is supernatural. In Gundam, character deaths are important to the plot. In Bakemonogatari, they are not.
Zaheerkarim, you keep asking me why this wiki does not include status. I keep asking you: why should it?
Finally, if you cannot communicate clearly through writing, that is something you should work to improve. This conversation would have gone much smoother if we could both understand one another.
It not just gundam there are others too. But why is not important in bakemonogatari you also say bad idea and said based on fact and confusion you just need something clarify to avoid confusion Black Hanekawa can be classified alive if blank hanekawa dieds so hanekawa along with it. Now you ask me why should it include status because I believe impotant in this plot beneficial that could be in people best interest that a fact.
All I need is a answer why is not impotant in bakemonogatari.
Now this I find worrying, because I was under the impression I had already explained myself. That you do not believe so indicates to me that I have not understood you, and now I am not sure if have understood you at all.
Look, I believe you genuinely want to improve the wiki, and I hope you think the same of me. That said, we are going around in circles of mutual misunderstanding. I am sure we are both frustrated at this point, and rather than keep beating a dead horse, I think it would be best if we both retired while the conversation is still civil. I am sorry we could not come to a proper conclusion, but I would rather stop here before the conversation turns into an argument.
