Yes, since I think we can do just as good as Serebii since there Character Bio isn't extensive. And even Bulbapedia doesn't elaborate on all important or what they think is important occurrences.

So, I take that as an ok then? I'd certainly love to start working on it straight away. (BW guide)

Compiling isn't hard just tedious. And I may need to watch some more episodes to run through some ideas of resources we could provide. Main thing I would be lack luster on is making the formatting look good i.e. coding and CSS.
I feel if we are going to compile we need a sub-forum since I'd like to see the parent forum for discussion only and maybe events like the ABP and future things such as that. Articles could be one of the resources. Maybe instead of a dedicated subforum for that alone we could work it into either a topic or series of topics. This would probably be a pain but somebody compiling videos of battles and adding to a battle profile of the character and their pokemon. I don't know if there is an Anime Location Dex where the locations are detailed and what goes on there but that may be something like Who appeared, battles, events that happened in those places, etc.
EDIT: I like that, it shouldn't be too hard to maintain either. I can edit others posts here and there if they become inactive.

Or perhaps instead of a sub-forums (I think I'm brainstorming ideas here), a sticky thread quide to BW (seeing as it's the most recent series, most people are likely to read it). Like, each post has a character bio, stick a full episode list with small summaries and a small picture for each episode etc...

If you want or need any help compiling it, I wouldn't mind helping out.
You mentioned a while back in a VM about the section having the capability of putting together information like Bulbapedia (such as the non-filler guide). I've been thinking about it, and seeing as we are just a forum, I thought about the idea of a sub-forum for articles and stuff like character bios etc, I think it would be a great idea. I don't know what you think of the idea, but I'd like your opinion before I do something like mention it in CQ&F. Bit too ambitious much?

I know, since I was waiting for you to fix it or I didn't know what you were doing with that episode. I fixed the "Memories Are Made of Bliss" to link to the topic you made.
I plan to, since I was the one keeping up with the recent episodes anyways. I plan to make a Revamp thread soon. At the same time I want to add to the FAQ. Maybe like the reasoning behind BW023 & BW024 not being aired. Cause I have seen multiple people ask about that and when they are going to be aired.

I think I've made that mistake a few times, but probably due to not taking any notice of Pokémon.com's mistakes in their episode guides. I've been too lazy to fix them. I'll probably go through them later and edit, or you could if you feel like it. The Beheeyem episode is also missing from the dub index. Also the hyperlink for "Memories are made of bliss" links to a locked thread. If anyone wants to discuss the Purloin episode they can just make the thread themselves, unless you feel it needs to be made for the index, but I see no point either way.
Why not remake the non-filler guide? We could make it a community project I suppose. We could make a thread regarding it and ask for peoples input, information and ideas after which I think we could compile it all together and either sticky the project or add it into the FAQ. The FAQ certainly needs a refresher.

Speaking of titles, I think there is a slight mix up on some. For the Beheeyem Dub episode you have pictures from the Purloin episode. And there is no dub episode topic for the Purloin one(unless I overlooked it).
Well like I said back in September I'd like to get the community involved considering we are called Pokemon COMMUNITY after all. Like I said when talking to AshPikastar I mentioned we could get some community projects going like we had with the Guide to Non Fillers, I am sure there is other things we can do to actually retain resources for our site that members could use not having to go on other places to see info on something.
Then some other game like things similar to ABP like Character vs. Character(which is just instead of pokemon the trainers and so on), then like Whos that Pokemon in Trivia we do something like who is that character and give hints as to who it is or what pokemon it is. Post blog entries with Episodes Previews that link to the topic discussion maybe to draw in people that may not usually frequent the Pokemon Anime Forum. I think a Revamp topic like other forums have did would also be a good idea so everyone could bounce their ideas around.
January 10th, 2012 7:38 AMMew~Quote:I inversely was hoping that for you. I have seen little to no one that is more helpful around the site then you. You are always adding something too the discussion when other replies may be bland yours seem to be above and beyond. I really hope one day that we are working together as well cause I adamantly think you deserve it as well. At least we can still fight over Episode titles(which I updated) xD.
So, have you got anything planned for the anime section yet?
September 19th, 2011 9:56 AMKenshin5
I wish I could say. Although we should probably get with Kirbychu and see if he has any ideas or plans. And we as Supporters always have our blogs to plug our forum if need be. Member participation will be the key for sure, so if we have stuff geared toward that the better.

You have practically just taken the words straight out of my mouth. Rather than me writing a massive lump of text, let's cut to the chase. What should we do to solve this exactly?
September 19th, 2011 9:17 AMKenshin5
Problem with most members is there is a childish stigma to the Anime. Or they are awed by Kanto saga and got tired after that and quite the anime. They may have been turned off back say the extensive fillers that Johto had to offer and though that the anime took that path in the rest of the series. Which is not the case especially with Best Wishes pace.
If they complain about the repetitiveness that seems irrelevant as the games are just as repetitive. New concepts like rotation for Ash are brought to the table. I know in at least Supporters Forum we were talking about Live Stream nights and what not. Well I don't see why if that ever goes down we can't incorporate Pokemon Anime in as well.
Yes there will be people that have grown out of the anime or lack the interest at the time. What we should try and do is target not only everybody but the people that have long since stopped watching. I don't know if they think it is any less of a viable medium as the games or TCG or even the manga for that matter, but to me it illustrates a story just as well as the game. It gives pokemon a new shade of life and character and adds to the characters in the game as well as introduce new ones along the way. That is what I would like people to realize(yes it may sound a bit philosophical at times, but Anime too me is just as important to the franchise as anything else and I wish our section would show that).
It's not like we need our members to writer long drawn at sentences about how they feel about an episode or a question raised in a topic but at least give your opinion. Yes I know it sounds like forcing it on people but I want them to enjoy what we enjoy, and maybe see that the anime is as good now as it was back then.

Oh right, I think I remember seeing a thread like that on Bulbagarden. The caption the screenshots thread in there is pretty popular too though, I'm sure we could try something like that out. Though it does sound very trivia, but I guess it could be an exception.
You've taken the words straight out of my mouth. Though really, our anime section has a huge amount of potential. Most of the uses I've talked to in this section don't really seem interested in the anime right now, or just don't notice the section. But that is really why I've mentioned the notice, I think it would help people notice the section a little more. I'm pretty sure most moderators aren't going to complain, we've got very positive staff.
Our real weak point from my point of view, are members. Though it does seem a little obvious, we still need them to support the section. Interested and dedicated members will give us a lot more activity. I'm babbling on a little there, but I do think we need to do something to maybe interest a lot of the members around here and maybe even get them into watching there series again...
