Adding audio drama info into the wiki

Hello everyone, I just wanted to let you all know I plan to slowly integrate the information from translations of the German audio drama into the articles (for instance, adding character changes or interesting trivia/differences into the character articles); many thanks to Luna (who goes by "Mikami" on Tumblr) for providing partial translations of the scripts and summaries of each chapter. This will be an ongoing/on-and-off endeavor since I do work full-time and have adulting responsibilities. Of course, if any of you all want to help, the translations and summaries can be found in the following link:

Please reach out to me if you have any questions. Thanks!

Sharing scans from the anime guidebook

Hello everyone. I want to ask if it would be possible for me to share the scans from the Death Note anime guide book volume 14. I wanted to ask first since I wasn't sure if sharing the scans say via Google Drive would be against Wikia terms of service.

The book is essentially out of print and the scans are lower quality so it would be for fair use purposes such as improving or adding to certain articles on this Wikia here. I've also made some translations on some of the passages and pages here and there, but my Japanese isn't the greatest and I still have to use Google Translate. It would be nice to get some translation help from other contributors.

Please let me know what you all think.

Character relationship sections - keep or delete?

I noticed a few character pages, namely "drama" versions of the main cast such as Light, L, and Misa, have character relationship sections. I know the main canon pages don't have them. Should we keep these sections or follow suit with the other wiki profiles and remove them? Or should we go the other direction and add relationship sections to all the important characters?

So lets talk about Wammy's house.

So, Wammy's House, we know what it does; it is a place where L and other characters (Near, Mello, Matt, Linda, BB, A) came from. However i do want to discuss about what happened behind the walls.

Wammy's House was created by Watari, for talented gifted children. At first the goal is to just to raise talented children, however soon L came in. After seeing lots of great achievements from L, Watari decided to make the project for the successor of L, in the orphanage. And here's the question: Do any of you think this is a bit too much? Putting children under pressure to make a successor of the prototype(L)?

Examples of how this goes wrong is A and B. A and B was the first generation of successors, and A committed suicide due to the pressure and …

Why Light Yagami is not Pure Evil

First of all, I am aware of the Slippery slope he went down as a delusional & insane serial killer, but he did have some hidden mitigating factors/moral agency issues from  what I could tell. Though some people may not have noticed them, I did. Without further ado let’s dive in. Though the scene where he hugged Misa was an act of manipulation, It might have implied that he felt some unconditional/reluctant love for her and/or proved that she was extra special to him. His fight against L was but a childish game. You can even relate both the Light hugging Misa scene & Takada’s death to when Light was calling for Misa and Takada, which was actually quite the heartbreaker, and also he seemed to regret/feel remorse for letting them outlive thei…

Bug squashing efforts from Fandom

Hello! My name is ReverieCode and I’m a Wiki Representative from Fandom.

I wanted to draw your attention to a 2 week quality of life bug fixing project we’re undertaking at Fandom as we work through a ton of great feedback we got about the new unified experience we unveiled at Community Connect last weekend. This work will focus on bugs which haven’t risen to critical fix levels while the engineering teams have been heads down on the unified experience work, like features not quite working the way they’re intended or the way they used to on the legacy platform.

You can read more about it in this blog, but what I’m specifically reaching out about is seeing if you have any particular bugs on the wiki that are really annoying, but not site break…

Improving Wikia Videos

As you might already know, Wikia Staff has added videos at the top of the following pages on the Death Note Wiki:

  • Light Yagami - Script has been edited by the community and sent for updating.
  • Misa Amane
  • L (character)
  • Ryuk
  • Rules of the Death Note

These videos were not created by Death Note Wiki contributors and we had little say regarding their content or implementation. They were created by Wikia Staff.

We have now been given the opportunity to update and improve them, starting with Light's video.

For any members of the Death Note Wiki community or Death Note fandom, I encourage you to offer suggested improvements so that these videos are accurate and clear. The scipts we have to improve are here:

  • Light Yagami - Done.
  • Others pending.

Seeking Volunteer Curators

Hey Death Note Wiki community!

I'm sure you're aware of FANDOM's editorial site, and our coverage of gaming and entertainment news. One of the features of the site is that we curate news from other sites with the intention of providing a full picture of what's happening in the world of gaming and entertainment.

To that end, we're creating a new volunteer group at FANDOM called "Volunteer Curators". What we're looking for are subject matter experts that have deep knowledge of news and features about their favorite game, movie or TV show. If you spend a bunch of time on the anime subreddit or follow anime news obsessively, we want to talk to you!

We're looking for people like you to help us round out our anime coverage - everything f…

New layout

The new layout is live!

I think I got all the main code that needs to be updated for readability, and I'll keep making tweaks to the rest. If you spot anything that could use an improvement, drop me a note!

Stuff still to do:

  • Main page header images. For now, I put in a quick fix to invert the images, which is why they appear white. I'll look into updating them though.
  • Main page sub-header styles.
  • Chat fixes. The chat room's night/day view options are now both black, so that's useless. Will need to get around to implementing display options.
  • Tabber tabs look kinda funny.
  • Manga navigation box image. The death note image is hard to see, maybe find a new image.
  • Site needs like 100% more silhouettes of Ryuk flying.

The Author and L

People argue that Tsugumi Ohba is a pen name. Some say Hiroshi Gamou is the author of Death Note manga. Others say it is Asami Yuuko! Well! I guess, as crazy as it may sound, the Author has no certain name ( Remember; a nameless orphan) He is all Hiroshi, Asami, Tsugumi and any other. This means that a search for the author's name is not the right beginning, maybe more attention should be given to the characters, L in specific. L used a name of a celebrity Hideki Ryuga as well as the Author used the name Asami Yuuko. What about the fake rule; If the user of the Death Note fails to consecutively write names within 13 days of each other, then the user will die, in how to use list of the death note. Why 13 days and why the Author wrote How to rea…

Portable Infoboxes - Styling Preview

By making use of the user-specific CSS customization available by editing User:[username]/custom.css, I've begun working on creating style themes for the new infobox markup. I've been playing with a few ideas and styles, which I'm putting up here for previewing.

As mentioned before, I can style the new infoboxes to look like the classic ones currently in use. If we're interested in a seamless, unnoticeable transition, this is an option.

Another option is that we can make some changes. The more I consider the possibilities and look through other documentation and designs, the more I'm inspired to update our infobox design.

  • 1 Previews
  • 2 New style features
  • 3 A few infobox features of note in the previews

An announcement

Creating pages for voice actors and actresses from the English and Japanese dub of the Death Note anime have been sanctioned by staff. You may now make these articles for any cast member as long as it is not a direct copy-paste text and has sources. Dubs for other languages has not been discussed yet, and live-action actors/actresses are still under consideration.

Portable Infoboxes

I've mentioned before that I'm in favor of migrating to the new infobox markup, called portable infoboxes. They have some neat features, like groups and collapsible sections, and they should display correctly across multiple devices. (If you've tried to view a page here on your smartphone lately, you'll know what I'm talking about.) You can read more about them here. I've made one infobox for testing, which is currently in use on the Death Note (TV drama) page.

The wiki already has a nice color theme and setup going with the existing templates, and I'd like to preserve that. Styling the new infoboxes will require an admin to do it in the community's CSS code, which you can read more about here. Today, I used Chrome to mess with the CSS of t…

No point in leaving

I got harassing messages from him even afterward. He said it was smart of me to quit, that he's going to find me, that I'm going to pay the ultimate price, that he'll see me soon, that he's obsessed. If that's the case, then I don't see why quitting the wiki would make any difference. Thanks, though, to ForcesOfNature, for filling everyone in.

He could've gotten rid of me, but he kept pushing, and if he thinks I'm kidding about the FBI he's mistaken. I'm going to talk to a lawyer about how to file the report tomorrow.

I noticed on the Doubt page that there was a section of goofs (i.e. mistakes or oversights) made in the episode. I really like that idea, and I find it very likely that there are other goofts in other episodes. If you ever notice any, feel free to add them.

We might want to think of a new section title instead of "goofs", though.

Due to the latest incident on this wiki I feel it is time to award new admin roles to people on this wiki as we only seem to two active admins right now (me and StillAlive). 

Comment on this blog and tell me what skills you can offer us and I will start by awarding you a "Rollback" Position and will agree a specific Primary Role for you to have on the wiki.

If you then continue to prove your worth upon the wiki as time goes by I may then award you a "Sysop" Position.

Primary Roles can include the following...

  • Wiki Discussion
  • Article Quality Control 
  • Anti-vandals 
  • Category article management
  • Making and managing templates
  • Image management 
  • Repairing links
  • Chat moderators

(plus anything else that can be determined by what skills you think you can offer)  …

Obscenity policy

Due to a recent event on the wiki, I'm going to go over Wikipedia's rules on "Offensive material".

According to the guidelines, "offensive material" (i.e. swears, slurs, etc.) are not to be used unless it is from a direct quote. For example, there are several influences in the Death Note series in which characters swear, and it is acceptable, when using those quotes for an article, to include the swear. However, using swears in blog entries, articles, etc., when not in the context previously stated, is not allowed. Bowdlerizing swears is also not acceptable.

Personally, I swear like an *insert expletive here* sailor, but that is beside the point. Rules are rules. The penalties for swearing will be discussed by the admins, and when we come to…

How to make/add to episode transcripts

Episode transcripts have the entire dialogue of episodes. Certain things should be done when certain things happen. I will explain what to do when a certain even comes up.

When a character is talking:

  • if a character is talking, use only their first name, or their last, name, if that is what they are most often referred to as (e.g. Light Yagami = Light, Touta Matsuda = Matsuda)
  • add a link to character pages, but only when they first talk [or, if they are mentioned before they talk, then the link should be added there instead]
  • if a character is talking in a certain way (e.g. over a two-way radio, with a voice modifier, etc.) add this in the dialogue portion, not with the name (e.g. !Light |([Over the phone]). This goes for thinking, singing, whi…

Death Note Review VII

Hahahaha YES I AM STILL ALIVE! I was actually really busy these four (oops) months since school was nearing its end. Anyways, I'm just going to start wrapping up this long long review :)

"Death Note: Not the end"

As you might have guessed already, I love Death Note. It has been and always will be one of my favorite anime/manga of well all time I hope. I love it so much I really can't get enough of it. Why do I love it so much? ell, if you've ever tried searching up something like "anime like death note" you won't get any. Maybe Mirai Nikki is close (eh not really) but to be honest, Death Note is just...a masterpiece. It wasn't copied off of other stories 24/7, it was real creative talent and imagination. It's unique, and I'm a sucker for uni…

L(Death note) vs A(Pretty little liars)

I think this is very important to discuss.

Because if these two characters were in a battle, it would be very similar to L vs Kira, both are intelligent, and L would stop at nothing to discover a case.

A is almost impossible to find out, of whom that person is, that I had to spoil the story, by looking up the wiki to know who A is.

Now if A is able to defeat L, then he would have a backup plan

Near-whom is considered by some others to be smarter than L

Mello-Whom is a boss.

So whom do you think will win.

Remember it took like 5 or 4 books to find out who A is.

To-do list for the Wiki (read if you're a contributor!)

So I contribute on Dragon Age Wiki which (unsurprisingly) has a ton of more pages than ours does, which is to be expected for a wiki about a video game which also has novels, comics, movies, etc. A lot of other wikis also have more pages than we do. Hell, if I wasn't so lazy, my wiki would probably have more pages than ours. I realize Death Note isn't a very long series, but there is still a lot to work with, and a lot of potential additions we could make to the wiki. So, here's what I think should be focused on:

• if possible, expand article stubs

• there are 33 other episodes of the anime that could use transcripts, as well as the two Relight episodes

• if anyone can read and translate Japanese, please leave a message on my wall, we have 2-3 …

So my topic today isn't technically about the CHARACTERS in Death Note. It's more on the anime and manga. To be honest, I personally like the manga better because that's where it all started, PLUS, there were more details to it. I watched the anime only because, well, I must admit, I had begun to realize that Death Note had already ended....and it's not a very long series either. The whole of it gave me really intense feels and I felt really attached to it, so haha surprise surprise, I ended up watching not only the anime but the movie as well.

Death Note: Live-Action American Cast (fantasy)

This is a page that simply is what the title says. These are the people I feel should be casted for the American live action version of Death Note. I don't have all the characters, but I do basically have the essential ones. Would love to hear opinons because I know there will be a lot of them.

L's Eating Habits Theory

I read a fanfiction one time that really made sense to me regarding L's odd eating habits. He only eats sweets and eats a lot of them, yet he's so thin. It could be because he's a cartoon character and they decided to stretch reality with his statement of being able to use his mind to stay thin as truth but in the fan fiction that was used as an excuse. The truth in the fan fiction was of him being bulimic. Where he binges on food then purges to get rid of it. That would make a lot of sense. I was just wondering if anyone has ever thought about this or what your opinion is.

Hello again~~

I apologize for not being on for so long- I had business to attend too (lol so formal). I guess what I'd want to talk about right now would be...."Matsuda".

Matsuda is an interesting character. He's the goof in the story, the one who lighten things up a bit, and he believed in Light throughout the entire story. I like Matsuda, he's a good person so I find it intriguing how much he believed in Light. Although Aizawa, Ide and even Mogi were very doubtful of Light after Near's appearance, Matsuda held strong. He believed in Light. He trusted Light. But when Light finally admitted to being Kira, I found it interesting how much it affected Matsuda's feelings. He said that Light's father, Soichiro, had sacrificed so much to try to fi…

Hi~ MissUchihaNara here. If you have not read Review I, that's alright. :)

Let's go!: "L Lawliet"

So basically, L is Light's main 'nemisis' in the Death Note series. It seems that most Death Note fans stopped reading/watching Death Note when L died. I guess it was because they felt that there was no meaning anymore, but that's just my opinion. I did continue reading/watching Death Note, even when L died, but I guess you could say I went into a sort of...'emotional trauma' or I could say depression but depression sounds so much more serious. Yeah, anime does that to me. So for a while, after L's death, I was now there is these new characters, these...childish children (lol) and they are going to fight for L. Ok. I guess it was just …
