Notice
Welcome to noticeboard, here you can read what's been happening with the guild.


Wassup <insert name here>,

October ended and the Mage of the Month is WU!

Anyway, I get that we're all busy and stuff. Not like I'm one to really complain considering I would love to do jobs but just can't find the time to do so (well, I started Laxus, but... :'D). Anyway, I'm waiting until there are literally no more regular jobs to take. As long as there are still some on the board, I won't add any. Take 'em off! Get a badge! -insert more shiz here- HNNNNNGH

Reminder: Please try to complete 3 jobs every 2 months, otherwise you face excommunication. If you can't meet the quota, just tell me, do what you can (this does not mean blow me off and don't do work), and then we'll work from there for the next two months.

Grammar GuildEdit

The Grammar Guild is a group of Fairy Tail Wiki users who have the clean-up task of correcting grammar on our articles by making sure the grammar within articles is correct and proper. All users should read over our Grammar Guidelines before you take any jobs!

Roles of the Grammar GuildEdit

The following are the duties of the guild:

1. To improve the grammar of our wiki's pages.
2. To improve the syntax of our wiki's pages.
3. To change past tense on our articles to present tense.
4. To understand that grammar checks aren't a one-time thing, and unless the character is dead, the grammar work on their page will not end until the series itself ends.

RequestsEdit

If any non-members wish to see a particular page checked for grammar errors, then leave a message on the talk page and the Guild Master or one of the S-Class Mages will add it to the list of jobs.

ProcessEdit

Here at the Grammar Guild, you pick up jobs from the Jobs section below, and check the entire page for grammar errors and syntax mistakes. Each Job is worth a certain amount of Jewels, and at the end of the month, Wrath will tally all the jewels and whoever has earned the most Jewels in a particular month will be called the Mage of the Month. If you see a job that you want to take, simply put "Taken by" and your signature beside it. Once you are finished, place "Completed by" beside it, and it will be checked for completion.

If any members wish to take a particular page and check it for grammar errors, they should leave a message on the Guild Master's talk page and inform him of it and how much they wish to receive for it.

When signing up for a job please use ~~~ instead of ~~~~ so that your timestamp isn't left.

Joining the Grammar GuildEdit

Mavis

If you wish to join the Guild, fill out the application below and post it on the guild talk page, and after your application has been reviewed and accepted, the Guild Master or an S-Class Mage will add your name to the list of members. All users should be dedicated to referencing our wiki, and must not be anonymous users. If you wish to join the guild, you must create an account.

Excommunication from our GuildEdit

In general, any users that go two months without successfully completing at least 3 jobs will be excommunicated from the Grammar Guild. If you cannot meet the quota, please inform the Guild Master or one of the S-Class Mages and you will be excused from the quota limit. When you are excommunicated, you must take our Guild's Badge off of your userpage within two days of being notified of your excommunication. If you do not remove it, one of your fellow Guild members will. Before a Guild Member is excommunicated, they must be warned at least 2 weeks in advance. The Guild Master or one of the S-Class Mages should handle this. Excommunications aren't permanent and if you wish to rejoin the guild, simply re-apply.

Grammar GuidelinesEdit

For a full page grammar edit, copy the page into Microsoft word, run the page through a spell check and judge whether or not the change it is telling you to make is actually a correct change. If so, go back into the actual article and make the change. Once you have gone through the spell check, give it a read through and make sure that everything flows and that you did not miss anything. Understand that not all users on this site are native English speakers, as such, the way they word things may not be the most understandable, BE SURE YOU CHECK AND FIX THAT!!

  • Please maintain the History sections of articles in the past tense. All other sections of an article should be placed in present tense.
  • Always use american convention.
  • If you come across any names that have not been changed to their proper form given in Kodansha's official volumes, please correct it. See Name Spellings for details.
  • Please make sure that names that are spelled with either of these characters (ōūó) are spelled correctly with the appropriate characters. For example Gatō not Gatou and Oración Seis not Oracion Seis.
  • Please change past tense to present tense EXCEPT in the history section.

Official LanguageEdit

The content of this wiki is expressed in English. This is an English language wiki and all edits are expected to be carried out in English (with exception to the Japanese content required via technique, powers or skill names determined by the content of the series). This includes articles, forum posts, blogs and talk pages. If a user's second language is English and they are not apprised of correct grammar and sentence structure we can only ask that you have someone help you with the content you wish to provide here as editing will be extremely difficult if you can not properly understand or converse with others in the community. Such edits would likely end up undone as they cannot be understood.

Spelling in WordsEdit

There are many different types of English; such as: American English and British English. To prevent this from leading to conflicts, Fairy Tail Wiki chose American English as our main form of English. For more information, please see the examples below. Also see American and British English spelling differences on Wikipedia.

Request BoardEdit

JobsEdit

When completing jobs, make sure you remember a few things:

  • Remove unnecessarily bolded words, like spell names that are either linked or written a second time.
  • If you see faulty references, or references that may correspond to more than one paragraph but only appear in one, fix it. Just because we are not the Referencia Guild does not mean that we ignore references.
  • In addition to correct syntax, make sure to capitalize words or terms that the wiki has deemed to be of importance (Magic, Mage, Demon, etc.).
  • Make sure image alignment is appropriate. If you have to remove images, then do it. When editing, you may end up reducing content and that may interfere with the layout of the page you are working on.
    • Alongside this, since you're going over image alignment, make sure the images pertain to the paragraph they are next to, not the ones they are near. This is a big problem on the wiki's older pages. If I see the problem still exists on the page you are working on, it will not be complete.

In addition to all this, if you see a page that needs text-reduction (these are not Fights or Events, but character synopses, arc pages and things like that) and you reduce the text, you will get a bonus. However much you get I will decide based on the amount you reduced. The opposite also applies; if you add content to fight/event pages that are lacking, you will also receive a reward.

Overall, remember that my job is to check your work, not to do half the work for you.

S-Class JobsEdit

These jobs will be graded more harshly, so be warned if you take them. They have to be as neat, tidy, collected, and perfect as you can muster (otherwise they wouldn't be S-Class jobs). Jobs that are equal to or greater than 10,000 Jewel are listed here. They will most likely have poor grammar and need text-reduction, so if you think you can get away with just mild rewording, think again. If the work I see is half-assed, you get no reward.

If you complete 1 S-Class job, it will count as 3 jobs, which means you will be exempt from the 3 jobs per 2 months rule upon being cleared for completion. If I feel that you can not complete one of the S-Class jobs up to my standards, then I will inform you and direct you towards an easier job.

Completed PagesEdit

The winner will be marked with  gold , whereas second and third place will be marked with  silver  and  bronze , respectively, if applicable.
