Godzilla Aquatilis and Ultima aren't the same Godzilla?

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

Same as above

Monster Island Buddies page

KunshuGoji (talkcontribs)

Hey Les, just checking with you and the other admins, is it alright if a few other users and I create a page on the Monster Island Buddies series?

Lamango (talkcontribs)

I believe the Monster Island Buddies has it's own wiki, but it hasn't been updated in years.

VaderRaptor (talkcontribs)

All the more reason to start one up.

Allosaurus (talkcontribs)

While my opinion has no weight, I would vote against Monster Island Buddies on this wiki. It is popular enough, but it is just series of videos, where a guy plays with figurines and jokes. I can't even call it a show.

KunshuGoji (talkcontribs)

While I do agree it is a bit ridiculous, it’s definitely a notable fan work, with the most viewed episode of the series (ep. 50) coming in at just below 5 million views.

KunshuGoji (talkcontribs)

And I’d never know about it having its own wiki, but I do agree Vaderraptor.

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

Sure. I don't really care, but good luck on that page!

KunshuGoji (talkcontribs)

Minor bump

Titan Designation

4
KaijuMan (talkcontribs)

Do you think that we should add the Titan designation for the MV Titans. Example: "Godzilla, designated Titanus Gojira" or "Godzilla, also known as Titanus Gojira"

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

No. The Titanus designations are already contained in the infoboxes.

Les (talkcontribs)

The Titanus designations are supposed to be their taxonomical classifications, as per the opening of Godzilla vs. Kong. There are plenty of other creatures we cover, especially from Kong media, that have species names but we don't list them in the opening paragraph. Seems unnecessary to me.

KaijuMan (talkcontribs)

Huh, I see. I've seen a few wikis do this but I guess it doesn't work here. It just sounds cooler as "Godzilla (ゴジラ,   Gojira), in-universally designated Titanus Gojira, is a Titan who first appeared in the 2014 Legendary Pictures film, Godzilla." It just sounded a lot cooler in my head, in the opening paragraph. Or maybe we can do it as: The MonsterVerse Godzilla (モンスターバース ゴジラ,   Monsutābāsu Gojira) is a Titan who first appeared in the 2014 Legendary Pictures film, Godzilla.

I have tried to add Amhuluk pic to the MV monsters list but I couldn't

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

For some reason, I can't manage to properly add him.

Can you please solve the code problem?

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

There were some additional code issues from the Godzilla vs. Kong additions... think I got it all in order now.

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

Thank you soo much buddy!

I finished my sandbox, but how do I convert it to a page?

6
TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

Pls respond.

The H-Man (talkcontribs)

It won't be published as a page because it's plagiarized from this site. Read the Plagiarism and other policy pages and re-work it from scratch.

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

Well, ok i will try harder.

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

I finished.

The H-Man (talkcontribs)

It's still not ready.

Plagiarism isn't simply solved by changing and removing certain words or by adding a reference to the plagiarized material. The history section of your page in particular needs to be rewritten in such a way that it's not obvious that you originally copied someone else's writing.

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

I have added references to what I have added now.

The Ghost of Slumber Mountain

12
Summary by Kaiju No. 14

The Ghost of Slumber Mountain is allowed here because it's a Willis O'Brien dinosaur film

Kaiju No. 14 (talkcontribs)

we are not allowed to have a The Ghost of Slumber Mountain page here if i am correct.

Allosaurus (talkcontribs)

I have a sandbox for it. It is allowed, because Willis O'Brien (who made special effects for King Kong) made special effects for it too.

Kaiju No. 14 (talkcontribs)

soo because O'Brien the special effects director of king kong made the film that is not of giant monsters but dinosaurs we can have a page?

Allosaurus (talkcontribs)

In many movies dinosaurs play roles of giant monsters. Even the tagline calls them "giant monsters".

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

O'Brien is an important enough figure to this wiki that Slumber Mountain is alright. Your standard dinosaurs-meet-humans movie would not be.

Allosaurus (talkcontribs)

I know that other unrelated dinosaur movies can't be there, no problem.

Allosaurus (talkcontribs)

Though some of them are related in my opinion. For example, Jurassic Park franchise has many relation with giant monster genre. It has references to King Kong, the ending of The Lost World is a homage to Gorgo, the first film was even inspired by Godzilla, King of the Monsters!, and inspired many scenes in GODZILLA (1998) too.

Kaiju No. 14 (talkcontribs)

understood

Kaiju No. 14 (talkcontribs)

but rip-off's of king kong are not allowed here.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

What? We've got plenty of those.

Kaiju No. 14 (talkcontribs)

The Mighty Gorgo

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

I said it "looks so inept I can't commit to covering it yet," which is still where I'm at, because I'm not exactly rushing to watch it.

Is there a Godzilla Merch page?

3
TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

Please put one in bc I have merc as well.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

I doubt we'd ever make such a page... it would be even longer than the main Godzilla page. Merch can go in galleries for the relevant characters/films though.

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

bc I have a hat jacket and shirt.

GvK Godzilla stat update

Summary by KaijuMan

Talk:Godzilla/Legendary

KaijuMan (talkcontribs)

Oh come on! I spent 4 minutes of my life putting those in there! Like, isn't it supposed to be the opening scene? And, before you say the "Uh... there are no credits to start" reason, keep in mind that KOTM also did not have opening credits. Also, do you think some fan edited this? Because this looks like some top notch movie editing to me.

KaijuMan (talkcontribs)

Why Godzilla page is closed to edits?

3
Shinomura (talkcontribs)

I wanna add a NEW game collaboration with a chinese game to the page.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

There was an edit-war on that page a few days ago. Changed it back.

Shinomura (talkcontribs)

Done.

You can close it again.

Also thanks!

Unofficial Godzilla Article

Summary by Les

Fan incarnations don't receive articles

KaijuMan (talkcontribs)

Well... I wanted to create a Wikizilla article about Dinomania's (That ain't me) LordVerse Godzilla from Godzilla: Lord of the Galaxy. Is that... appropriate or not, for it is not official?

Les (talkcontribs)

We rarely cover fan content unless it is especially notable (things like Gamera 4 and Heritage). Certainly never incarnation pages for a fan appearance of Godzilla.

KaijuMan (talkcontribs)

Oh I see. Well thank you. It is pretty notable, around 360,000 views and counting.

KaijuMan (talkcontribs)

Although this was my first time signing up. Just wanted to try something out lol

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

We don't really look at view counts to determine notability.

KaijuMan (talkcontribs)

Ah I see... how do you determine notability?
