Things here are mostly going fine, though I do have a few worries about all the merch that will need to be added to the Wiki sonner or later. There are so many peieces of merchandise that I feel like it would be better to split up the merch that gets added by the year it was released. If there was less merchandise, I would probably have more energy to create pages for figurines and plushies.
I just need to add some more information on Snow Miku and the Piapro Characters page. All that is left to do for the Racing Miku (main) page is importing the photos from the VOCALOID Wiki.
So what Luka's provider is basically saying is the more skilled you are at speaking English in terms of forming sentences, the more skilled you are at forming words. Essentially, "don't worry about your accent, the more your understand of the language itself the less your going to mess up the basics." The way to understand it is essentially she is saying being able to form sentences is more useful then being able to say words. If you put too much emphasis on being accurate with words, you sound unnatural and forced.
She struggles to speak English and needs a machine translator, so people think she is great at it when she is not. So she is I guess speaking from experience.
Thank you so much. Using this information I will attempt to write a sentence or two that clearly states her opinion on learning English. Also, I believe it would be best for me to do the same on the VOCALOID Wiki's V2 voice providers page.
Its the same theory that Nana uses, don't bother being correct just sound natural.
I've seen some people say Miku English isn't as good as Luka V4x, but its actually Miku English V4 thats the better English vocal according to CFM themselves. Since studios are "word of God" you always have to go by what they say, even if you disagree. But its because they made a lot of new improvements in English development with Miku V4 English so... On a technical level its better supposedly.
I was testing out the appearance for the second headers in PortableCSSPad, those being General and Product information, to see if there was a way to make the shadow for them less intense. To me it looks muddy and hard to read, but I know what is there.
The options I was working with are: "font-size: 16px;" or "letter-spacing: 2px;"
If possible, I would not change the font size or the letter spacing and attempt to remove the text shadow only from the second headers. Initially I only wanted shadows on the primary header (article name), but the other shadows popped up so I just decided to keep them there.
As long as the shadow on the article name is not removed, any change made is fine. Though EarthlingAkumi did note that the CV text shadow was too bright. So I changed the code from pure white to the lightest gray color I could find. Eventually I may try to create a shadow text gradient similar to the V4x packages.
But I am also working on trying to add text gradients to only the headers too (the goal is also to get the header to look similar to the V4x logo). So far I have the colors I want to use, the only issue is getting the code formatted so it works.
I am working on adding text gradients similar to the icons on their offical product packages. I am only not sure as to where the text gradient code goes. Therefore I am asking for help through the Community forums again.
I apologize. That is why the text appears white. Hopefully the problem will be solved soon though.
Okay so as you've figured out, you can make a infobox very easy when making a template just by using the easy set up system the wiki has provided. That is fine for a quick set up and great. But... When it comes to wanting to do more advance templates, every time you hit "edit" you end up on the wikias "easy to make" system each time.
Sorry for bad terms, but once you've made a template and saved your basic layout, look at the top of the page until you find the words "Template Type". Then, switch it from "infobox" to "non-article". It leaves the source code on the page only and for advance wiki users, we prefer that.
If you need help don't fret to ask, you seem a lot more "new" then expected thats fine though. ITs all very overwhelming and I have time to help a newbie. ^_^
Thank you. As with everything, there will be a learning curve to editing. But if I taught myself how to use VOCALOID4, I can (probably) figure these things out. I might need to learn the code before I start though.
PS What do we do about Miku's thumbnail? It's not showing now.
Can you screenshot the issue, its not having any problems my end?
Ah, never mind I see it.
I have no idea whats up there.
If it continues tomorrow I may have to ask Bunai about it.
My guess its either confused which image to use or the wiki cliche system hasn't updated yet. I think Miku's the only page without a non-Galley'ed image and that may be the problem. The only images on the pages right now for characters is their information box.
I have been working on the infobox color issue. I was able to solve the text color issue, but I am still trying to create color themes for each Crypton vocalist page.
So far all I know how to do is make the entire page's text a single color. It isn't exactly what we need but it's a step in the right direction. I will see if the Community Central Forums can help me solve this issue.
Thank you very much. I will do my best when I have time to edit here.
Might as well call this my new "Wiki home." Though I may not be extremely fond of Crypton's vocal products, I cannot deny that it helped the popularity of vocal synths rise for quite some time.
