FA icon.png Alright, so this is the subject which I would like to bring up :

This part of my talk page.

Thing is, I welcome the idea, and I honestly believe that we should have walkthrough space.

Many users (even I) have walkthroughs in our user space, but this guy is a serious LPer who knows his stuff in and out. Given the effort he has put into his work, he won't leave his walkthrough half complete like what most of us have done. Look at the Walkthroughs category and you'll realise that not a single person has done a complete Kingdom Hearts II walkthrough. He's doing it with vids on top of that. Efforts like this should be really commended, even if he's a first timer.

So, here's my suggestion : Instead of putting walkthroughs in user space, we have an all-new walkthrough space, where people can contribute in order to make it better, but there are several conditions to be fulfilled :

  1. Each LP must have a maximum of seven users editing it. This includes people who are willing enough to source for missing files, if any. I'll be sourcing for HD screens, which can be used in the articles proper as well as in the LP.
  2. A trustworthy user must keep watch of the whole effort, and any bad activity, as usual, is reported to the admins (if the banhammer is needed) or mods (if rollback is needed).
  3. Because there are too many strategies on the Enemy pages sometimes, we need something to match the videos in use. We have a KHW user doing it proper, and thus, only one strategy and a maximum of two alternatives are needed during boss fights.
  4. Once the walkthrough is complete, the page should be locked.
  5. There should be one walkthrough/LP per game. Incomplete ones shall be merged, if there is substance in them ; or else, into the VFD pile they go.

I'm yet to think of the sections that should appear there, but I'll write them down ASAP.

Thoughts ?

 "Yes, but Rimmer Directive 271 states just as clearly: 'No chance, you metal bastard.'"

TALK -
If we're thinking of using the videos for the actual boss articles, then I'm slightly uncomfortable with an LP-style video, just because of the fact that it has the guy speaking. I mean, this guy is going to be really helpful, don't get me wrong, I'm very appreciative, but I'd like the videos to stay in the walkthrough space.

However, if he plans on doing Days, it might be appropriate to use his videos in the Mission space, since that's already a sort of walkthrough deal going on.

Can you ask whether he plans on doing the game's 100% (getting every treasure, etc.)?

FA icon.png I'll go ask him. I doubt we'd be using it for the actual boss articles, since strategies may differ, and boss pages have like, five strategies and there only needs to be one vid to fit at least one strategy. In our walkthrough, we're taking the route "apparently less taken", so I doubt the vid will get into the Boss space...... right ?

OPXion4EverIcon.png Walkthrough space sounds good to me. One question, will we model the walkthrough space similar to Final Fantasy Wiki's style or start one from scratch? Also, Kryten's summarized the best choice for the videos; leave actual Boss articles alone (due to voice/background noise from video) but use in Days Mission articles.

For simplicities sake I've created a list of all the walkthroughs we currently have on the wiki:

Kingdom Hearts

NONE

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories & Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Kingdom Hearts II

NONE

That's everything.

I have to say, I love how SN formats his guide.
