Hello Springteufel! I'm Monollama, and Bureaucrat Admin for Danganronpa wiki. On June 30th you offered to the wiki your new Featured Wiki Videos, (http://danganronpa.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:51768) which we were happy to have the chance for! However we had some questions and concerns before we agreed to it, and I hope it's okay to repost them here.
Would we be allowed to know what "group" we would be in? Would you (or the group FANDOM hires) be writing the script? Or would we (the Staff of DR Wiki) be writing them?
And what control would we have over the content? The Danganronpa series is rife with spoilers and I would like to prevent that from being placed on the top of the page or inserted in a video accidentally.
Would we also have control over clips, pictures, and/or images? Or would this result in Copyright issues?
great to hear back from you :) Yes, Danganronpa is a great candidate for possible wiki videos. Wiki videos are rolled out to more and more communities and are a permanent and mandatory part of FANDOM.
At the moment our video team produces all videos you see in the wikis and additionally also use third party videos, for example from well-known youtubers or publishers. That also means that the team will pick the video clips and pictures.
When videos are created, we highly focus on the article where the videos will be placed to make sure that they match the wikis tonality and content. The wiki videos are supposed to support the article's information and to provide a second way to consume it. Of course, we are happy to get your feedback to work steadily on the videos. Recently we got great ideas and hints from the communities about wiki videos.
Please come back to me if you have further questions, I am happy to help!
Thank you for the answers, this leads me to a few more questions and concerns though:
Do we (the Staff of DR wiki) have the ability to deny/reject any assets of a video?
Spoiler Content: Because our franchise is a visual novel franchise we'd be extremely concerned about having no creative control over spoiler content, because the games typically do not have a lot of re-play value due to the main meat of the game being who lives and dies and the story's outcome. In Japan, the developers of our game actually disabled the ability to record video or screenshots past Chapter 1 for this reason. There are so many spoilers, some of which would probably appear minor to an outside viewer, that it would make us very concerned about being held to account for spoiling readers in a video we didn't have any control over.
For example: there are several characters where videos wouldn't be suitable at all because their existence is a spoiler, or their history is a spoiler. We'd need at least some measure of control over that.
Narrators: Unfortunately, as a visual novel wiki our franchise doesn't lend itself particularly well to being LPed because it can take over 60 hours, and as a result most Youtubers who have played it are of variable quality. Some of the few popular Youtubers who do associate themselves with our franchise are particularly controversial and unsavory and we would be uncomfortable with our wiki being associated with their content without our consent.
Information: I also would like to know about where the information would be coming from? I would assume it'd be the wikia pages themselves, however, a good majority of the current pages we have on Danganronpa Wiki are severely outdated or poorly written in desperate need of a rewrite. I would not be comfortable with videos being made with the current content on the aforementioned pages.
All these questions can be individual to the specific wiki.
For now, we don't know when we will create videos for the Danganronpa community yet.
Whenever we may make a video for your wiki, those questions will be determined by the Wiki Video Team at that time and we are happy about hearing your opinion on the videos then. I am sure it will be easier to discuss actual videos examples than the theory for now :)
