Title

Does Cartoons and Comics really work out for a name? In the Western world Cartoons and Comics refers to Western styled work not Eastern styled work (ie: Animanga) but both are used here on a Western portal. ~Dantman(talk) tricks May 14, 2007 @ 23:15 (UTC)

Do you want to call it "Graphical entertainment"? People in the Western world might think that refers to "Entertainment that contains graphical content", where "graphical" has a certain rated annotation. I think using differing terms to segregate art styles should just be reserved for the Western otaku elitists, whereas the otaku purists and the general public should just accept that "anime = Japanese word for cartoon" and "manga = Japanese word for comic". Some of the Western general public still has never heard of the term "anime" or "manga". -PanSola 22:35, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
T_T We can't call it Graphical Entertainment. That will be the info page for the Graphical Entertainment Wiki that will need to be created when the WGEP expands even just 1 more phase into the project. Maybe, Graphical Entertainment Hub... But it's annoying that things like that will confuse people and make them think that everything there is part of the WGEP. ~Dantman(talk) tricks May 19, 2007 @ 07:37 (UTC)
Well, I don't care if ppl can distinguish whether something is in WGEP or not. My primary concern is, whether people can figure out what the label means, whether it's "Graphical Entertainment" or "Cartoons and Comics". I would say that, considering there is Anime shown on the "cartoon network", and manga sold in Comic book stores (or comic section of book stores), and there are probably still lots of uninitated general public who has not heard of the term "anime" and "manga" and would just consider something like Dragonball (if they see it) a "Japanese cartoon/comic series", the current name of the hub is fine as is. People interested in gore and action might, on the other hand, consider the Doom FPS computer game series as "graphical entertainment". -PanSola 22:44, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Entertainment.wikia

Is Entertainment.wikia's scope supposed to cover cartoons and comics? I thought it was simply a misnomer that was restricted to TV series and Movies, as opposed to all forms of entertainment. -PanSola 22:38, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Other portals

What about a portal for each of the sections; Comics, Cartoons, and Animanga. We already have 3 categories, and there are a lot of wiki in the 3 sections. There are especially a lot of inactive Animanga wiki, perhaps a pyramid portal would help make some of the inactive Animanga wiki more active. ~Dantman(talk) tricks May 21, 2007 @ 20:37 (UTC)

The idea of a hub like this is to encourage people to browse. If somebody likes Marvel comics, they're also likely to be interested in other cartoons and comics, including anime and manga. So the hub helps people to find all of the related wikis in one place. -- Danny (talk) 20:42, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

HI i was just wondering umm... can you put back the "List of Wikia's", and can you make a genere of Fantasy i only see science fiction in here, i think that will be all bye.~~EL CID~~

Adding wikis?

Can we add wikis to the list at user's own disgression? The Young Justice Wiki is a wiki based on the brand new Cartoon Network television series. It is slowly progressing, but progressing none the less. We could always use more editors to help out, and placing the wiki here might do it.

Standards

I feel that if a wiki is going to be listed at this hub is should at least have a favicon, custom skin (doesn't have to be fancy though), and a logo. I'm glad a webcomic is featured at the top, but the Penny Arcade wiki doesn't have any of those.  YazzyDream  Talk  Gravity Falls    04:59,7/29/2011 

MS Paint Adventures Wiki has all of those. Actually, I just noticed it isn't even listed at the bottom. I'll add it now. -- Supermorff 21:10, July 29, 2011 (UTC)
Then I think that one should be featured instead of PA.  YazzyDream  Talk  Gravity Falls    08:16,7/30/2011 
Done. -- Supermorff 10:14, July 30, 2011 (UTC)

Discrimination and disputes

I've had my link randomly removed by someone calling it a "fanon" wiki, and "having no place here."

Dozerfleet Database is the official database for Adam-00's Cagegirl series, in addition to various other works that have been created, such as the Blood Over Water miniseries compiled into a single film on YouTube.

To call all of it "fanon," just because the concept art for some characters uses Sims and because many of its projects are still in development, is a gross misrepresentation of the wiki and its ultimate purpose.

For starters: what is Cagegirl a fanon of?

Yes, some fanfics are documented on there, but it's not the main function of the site. Adam-00's main syndication for his graphic novel is ComicFury, and secondary is DeviantArt. I know his work is rejected by the staff at Superpower Wiki for mention, because they have an ignorant bias against the works of writers that have not yet earned X amount of money from publishing their work. However, that does NOT make it "fan work."

The moderators at SuperPower Wiki went so far as to say: "As long as it's on DeviantArt, we will always count it as a fan work, and therefore, invalid."

So how do I go about disputing another user who rules something as a "fanon" wiki? Contributor186 removed my link, and mine alone.
