Eternal Flames KHD.png Well CONGRATULATIONS everybody! The KHWiki-verse will turn 10 years old next year! That’s right, we’ve been around for almost 10 years. The Wiki was founded on April 1st, 2006, so our tenth anniversary is April 1st, 2016. So, we should celebrate! So, this forum will be host to the many ideas that we may have. If it works out, we could probably do more than just one! Eternal Flames KHD.png

Ideas[edit]

/KHWV/ sings "Simple and Clean"[edit]

The idea would be to mock something like /a/ sings. /a/ Sings is a reddit board that comes together and sings anime openings every so often. Example! (ignore the first 20 seconds) So, I thought we could get a few people to come together and sing Simple and Clean. You don't have to be good, this is supposed to be a thing where everyone sucks at singing so we all come together and embarrass ourselves as a team!

Discussion[edit]

If we do decide to do this, English version or Japanese version? I'm rather picky when it comes to the two, sorry! 53c5232e-8bd7-4844-bb55-47c9dde2cfb5_zpsb63294f5.pngANX219 18:59, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

I was thinking we'd do the english plantB remix shortened version. (That way I could just overlap the our audio to the KHI intro.) Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 22:35, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Collaborative Art Piece[edit]

Brought up by FR, we'd come and make up a bunch of art pieces to make a big collaboration. I'll have FR come and give more details later. Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 05:07, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Time Travel to the Past![edit]

This was brought up by KSM right before he left. "The only idea I was thinking we should/could have is to rehash our old themes (backgrounds) with our old logos, but the logos sporting a nice 10th Anniversary banner. It would run around during that week, unless you guys want to change the time it runs, it’s up to you guys." Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 05:07, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

I kind of expanded on this and tried to make the whole front page of The Keyhole into a flashback here. So maybe we could do that with the KHWiki front page as well? Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 05:07, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

I wouldn't mind doing that. It's not very visually appealing, but I suppose that's the point- to show what it was in 2006 and how much we've improved since. Since the wiki's birthday is April 1st, would the anniversary celebrations be happening on that week or for Jan 1st? TheFifteenthMember 10:13, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Shouldn't someone be making this ready now? TheFifteenthMember 17:21, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

KHWikiverse: A history[edit]

Inspired by this, I've been wanting our own KHWiki:History page for a long time and what better incentive to write one than our 10th anniversary? This will require digging into ancient edit history especially for the first few years, but the few really old users can help out. Maybe we could contact inactive users from the past to piece together the information? TheFifteenthMember 21:54, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Perhaps we could. I'm not sure how active Bluerfn, Ultima the High Seraph and the lot will be, but it'll be nice to hear from them again. I can piece bit by bit from 2008 to 2011, and this year. There are some usernames I can draw. However, it would be advisable to contact them on the Keyhole, rather than here (because chances are, they wouldn't have signed up). TRSNX 20:20, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

I wondered if anyone has off-wiki contacts for any old editors, because there's a bigger chance of them replying on Facebook or something than the wiki. TheFifteenthMember 20:18, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
I know how to get ahold of DE, Sox, and DTN. Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 22:27, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
Definitely interested in this. I know Saph, Hex, and a few others. I know BebopKate can be contacted on Facebook. Xion4ever 18:22, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
Great. I think the sooner we start this the better, even if it's just contacting individuals to start off with. TheFifteenthMember 20:45, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Timeline of the KHWiki[edit]

Similar to the KH timeline, we could make a timeline of the wiki with the important events (like moving to KHWiki or the founding of the KHWikiverse), game releases (to see what happened when) and, the most important, the join dates of the current users. We could later display it on the history page mentioned above. TheSilentHero 11:15, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

I like this a lot. Would we only have the join dates of current users? I think it's important to recognise retired ones too. The problem is deciding which users deserve a mention and which don't. TheFifteenthMember 11:27, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Maybe also retired staff members and all Featured Users? TheSilentHero 12:54, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
Sure. TheFifteenthMember 12:59, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
Is it possible to merge this with the above topic? Or have them at least link each other? Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 22:28, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
Sure, the timeline could be a supplement/summary of the history. TheFifteenthMember 20:00, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

Themed magazine issue[edit]

It's been decided that #Issue 7 will be themed on the 10th anniversary and will incorporate the history, timeline, art collab and /KHWV/ sings ideas mentioned above as well as other ideas. Check out the Journalist Spot! TheFifteenthMember 19:55, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

IRC party![edit]

A bit of a delayed announcement, but Aixon has brought up another idea for the celebrations- an IRC party! Basically, we want our channel as boisterous and active as possible for the 1st of April so spread the word across all editors, active and inactive alike, and try to spend as long as you can on the IRC this Friday! TheFifteenthMember 12:45, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Overall discussion[edit]

How long would the celebrations take? A week or a month or maybe longer? TheSilentHero 11:43, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

Depends. I think the /a/ and art collab could be featured in a special 10th anniversary celebration page fourteen in the magazine set to release in April 1st (our birthday). The logo/skin/main page could be retro for that week. TheFifteenthMember 16:27, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
I think we should use the entire month. It's easy to miss out on everything if you have a busy week, while everyone should be able to come online sometime during the month. TheSilentHero 11:15, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
I agree with the whole month for the main page. Would we want to change the Monobook skin background as well? Or would that be too much work? Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 22:52, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
The only reason why I wouldn't want it to be the whole month is the main page doesn't look as good as our own, but we only turn ten once so let's just do it. When are we planning on doing these projects? After January? TheFifteenthMember 20:02, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
My thoughts on time frames: /KHWV/ sings - video gets posted on April 1st, so I'd want everyone's audio by at least March. Maybe the art piece could be the cover for April's issue of the magazine? The history page/timeline really doesn't need a time frame in my opinion. Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 03:06, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
I was hoping the history page/timeline is released for the first time on a page 14 of the April magazine and then after a month or something, put onto the wikis. TheFifteenthMember 20:48, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
I like that idea! Magazine first it is! Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 07:07, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry I'm late to the party again.

We reskinned the wiki not too long ago, but do you think the 10th anniversary warrants a reskin, or shall we just leave it as is? TRSNX 13:22, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

I think we agreed on keeping the celebrations for one month, which I find too short to change the wiki skin entirely. Maybe just a different logo, with 10th anniversary on it, or something? TheSilentHero 18:16, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

It may be a bit late, but are we still going to do the timeline idea? TheSilentHero 23:33, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Yes, but we'll first need the history to get a rough idea of what to do for it. TheFifteenthMember 12:24, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

An editor pointed out that we should probably take the 10th anniversary main page decorations down now. I know we agreed on a month but with KHUX's English release, we're probably receiving a lot of traffic right now, hence why it's more important now than ever that our main page is in top form. Besides, two weeks is still a decent length of time for the celebration. Thoughts? TheFifteenthMember 20:46, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

I agree. I'll revert it now. TheSilentHero 11:45, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
