Saddly, we might be the "#1" exclusively dedicated to Megaten grand unified website dejour, but our track record atm is completely dysfunctional!! So no reason to start boasting... not to mention the website is so far from comprehensive it's sickening sick

I don't want to seem down... but anyway, if we're gonna replace that banner, it needs to say something like "We're a collectivist website now and need you to contribute content" ...only it has to be phrased very ergonomically and endearingly if it's going to cut mustard sweatdrop

Btw, since the ads aren't bringing in enough money anyway, and we're all used to them by now, I removed the "The database is now ad supported! Please consider our sponsored links." from the front page banner... but it looked weird with all that empty space, so I put it back...

So I think it's time to change the banner message to something else. Right now the database needs new content most. So If anyone can writeup a new catchy message that is no longer than the old one asking for contributors that would be most helpful smokin

The site is really slipping away in terms of popularity and I don't really know what to do about it.

It's still a fairly major spoke of the internet for web surfers looking for Megaten info. But it doesn't really have a dedicated following, and the ad revenue isn't enough to finance hosting the website. We still have virtually anonymous people letting the site sit on their host (and not at all responsible people I might add)

If the ads don't pickup the only chance of the website having a continued presence on the internet is if/when I have to lease a fairly beefy host for some other reason and can afford to just stick this website in some corner of it.

So let's just hope the website can keep floating in indefinite limbo and nothing happens with the domain name. Because if it did, even though I control the whole site now, I seem to have zero authority when it comes to the domain name. The name is currently on lease by the host provider (hostpapa.com) which I have no influence over.

I think maybe the question is where is the earring boy in the P2 games?? I haven't (read: don't want to) played the P2 games myself, so I don't know if he's there or not... but anyway, posters asking questions: please be more specific rainbow

I wonder if that dude would let us syndicate/translate his Megaten posts on this site??

^Google Chrome definitely seems more responsive.... you probably wanna at least try downloading Chrome and using it with Google Spreadsheets...

I do recall in the past however, using Chrome would make you do shit you didn't want to do, but you could always hit undo afterward and keep going.


Anyway, I've given you some breathing room if you wanna keep going smokin
248  Post Apocalyptic Hellscape / The Underground / Re: Need help with your Demonary? on: May 21, 2009, 06:52:53 PM
To be honest.... I'm still not convinced this Google Spreadsheets webapp is reliable enough to keep using this way.

I'm trying to make the page you're working on longer (more empty rows to fill in) and still haven't been able to get it to work...

I'm going to try with Google Chrome, then give up. Maybe if your internet is better you might have better odds of pulling this off...


But remember, you gotta keep making the spreadsheet longer, and its best to do it before you get too close to the bottom.
249  Post Apocalyptic Hellscape / The Underground / Re: Need help with your Demonary? on: May 20, 2009, 05:13:45 PM
Yeah, the Translations column is not Atlus USA localizations. That column is for unofficial translations (which we assign democratically or whatever)

The Atlus USA translations aren't needed in this spreadsheet, but if you want you can stick something in the first column just for reference. That column is there because it has to be, or the copy over won't work right.

Copious notes are great. Entries don't have to be spells either. Just put what it is in the function section (devil, persona, item, skill, whatever makes explicit sense I can accommodate)

If you want to add some helpful info after a Japanese cell just put it in square brackets and it will be ignored. Like if a skill is in Kanji and you want to add the kana to help people read / look it up, just put it in brackets (edited: currently we're using [], which is easier to detect, but I can probably do 「」 as well if I gotta)

If there are any skills that are actually spelled different in the Japanese games (I don't think there will be other than some games having kanji and some not) then we might develop a new notation at that time (a double entry won't hurt though)

You're doing a fine job rainbow


PS: Personally I prefer Jio to Zio for an unofficial translation because it's more modern and because it's easier to use shorthand notation (A,B,J,Z) than (A,B,Z,Z) rolleyes

But the ball is in the court of whoever does the work as far as I'm personally concerned (Jio also sounds like Geo, which is very Earth elementally tongue)

You can sort any column alphabetically to help you find what's been entered previously entered (but only in the uniform Stock Terms spreadsheet -- a sort in the others will fuck up everything / require a rewind wink)

About however Atlus USA localized stuff, just leave that blank or stick whatever in there. The idea is just to fill out the list so it can be copy pasted into other game specific spreadsheets, then fill in the game appropriate translations in the other spreadsheet, and delete anything that doesn't belong (though extra stuff doesn't hurt anything)

Ok, this one is up...

I changed up the title, but I haven't really read the write up.... if any of our editors wanna fix anything please post an edit up.

If this is from your blog Emilio please give me a link.

Sorry, I'm just pressed to even get this up today~
252  Post Apocalyptic Hellscape / The Underground / Re: Need help with your Demonary? on: May 19, 2009, 05:18:27 PM
I think what primarily needs doing is to just add rows to the terms table for all the classic stuff like Agi, Bufu, etc. Of course I already did a number of those (can't recall how far I got) ...then there are also a lot of extended magic families, and non-classifiable skills also that can just be tossed into the same bunch. The first field I think is for the Revelations skill name for now. Then there is just Japanese (in romaji -- maybe in kanji/hiragana as well... can't recall) ....and finally there is a field for just a straight best we can do English translation (edited: oh yeah, and don't forget original Japanese game names)

The goal is just to make sure when people are browsing the Megami Ibunroku database, there are no unnamed skills (in each of the three presentations; Revelations, Original, and Unofficial English Translation)

There will be a fourth for Atlus USA's PSP translation after that happens as well. If the reader is viewing the website in Spanish, then they will see Unofficial Spanish Translation instead... but that type of translation will be handled by a different database, so no need to think of it for now.

In short, we just need all the Megami Ibunroku skills indexed sweatdrop


^And later we can do the same for devils, items, etcetera doh


Edited: You can leave anything you're uncomfortable with blank. It's most important to just get the rows in there.

^I think I tracked down where you got it (geez hardest working blogger ever...)

http://www.kotowari.org/megami-ibunroku-devil-survivor-pocky-shaman/

The original fullsize link seems broken, so maybe it'll come back confused

I noticed we lost the (hot linked) graphic for this post...

I know we gotta work out a better system for posting images. But in the meantime, can we find a replacement so I can upload it to the server?

PS: From now on when someone adds a post, please use the forum attachment feature to upload it to our server (do it for them if you gotta) ...That way I can at least have a copy when the post graphic goes link dead sweatdrop
