Hi Joker, I'm here to talk about my Lord page edit that you had undone recently.
[Lords are a high ranking species comprised of multiple races, each specialized in a certain field.]
this is the Lords general description in the Lord page, I think it's more approprite to edit Species to Races in the followingpassage.
[Even though the different Lord species have remarkably different physiques and looks, they also share common traits that helps to settle them as one bigger group. The characteristic Ogre Orbs are perhaps the most well-known.]
Since seems to be a missunderstanding towards the terms Species and Race; I'll quote somthing that very much explains it:
"Race is wherein a genetic tie is located. For the Goblin Race, that leads down to where the entire Rou family is connected, Mi, kichi, and so forth.
They are all one race whereas the Wind, Fire, Earth, so forth Lords are simply classes, not a race of their own. If anything, memory serves that they are classified as species, such as when it is referred to that most of the Dark Generals of Blackened Doom that follow big boss Rou around as he goes calling anything that he eats and overanalyzing every monster he comes across only to never encounter them again..... Cough, they are refered to as Sub-species in many circumstances in universe. Thus implying that Lords are a Species, not necessarily a race in on itself. That being if we simply don't decide to classify Lorddom as a unified species wherein their fire or alignmentation is their Class. There are Gems and the sort after all. Then again, the entire process of thought behind this likely streches into the realm of consideration that the author hasn't even gone into. He scripts out a basis and then draws the trees and magnifies the powers accordingly with modest retention of power balance that is often undermined by the core cast.
If anything, the entire Goblin clan falls under as a single 'Race', with Rou still being within the Orkoid race whilst being whatever super overpowered munchy-diety inspired malgamation he turns into today being his species of the month."
He whom pointed the main differences is WhiteSamurai, one of the founders of the Pacem Community, responsible of the early English adaptations of the Web Novel present on this wiki, as well as one of the admins.
Also, in other order of things, I'd like to thank your continuous edits and hope that this keeps up on the future.
C ya 'round!
ninjaedit: If you face it from a biological point of view, what the author sets as Race will be the Family equivalent while the species are the diferent species inside that family or race
A Hidden Vault in the middle of a forest shrouded in mystical Fog, a mythical flute played in the background as the cherished children frolicked without care. The men chopped wood whilst the women toiled in various chores, the birds chirped and the land was at peace. All went silent as a single man clad in White walked through the town, and gave a sermon.
"Let it be known, that Science exists! That our bodies are the same and different! Behold my majesty and beware!
Obey the classifications I shall bless upon thee, and listen well for I shalt only say it once, and once only.
That is all"
And so the man left, and so but only three gentlemen in the corner held but more than a passing care, the day went on, and peace continued silently in the autumn dusk & dew.
Characters are often refered to by species rather than anything else.
For the example of in character reference, Rou's refered to as an Ogre sub-species when referencing himself, and others referencing him as well. Not an Ogre race. This allows us to make the assumptive reason that the Ogre itself is classified as a species, not a race. If it were, it would be sub-race, not sub species.
Class is a general assessment point that can be inferred rather than needing to be directly stated, as there are half lords and lords in general. These individuals are still of a classified race, their goblin roots, whilst other races of demi creatures are of other races. They can still be of the same species, such as with the Lorddom. To classifiy and divide a species, one would reference their classes.
To do this, I would reference this as a very loose distinctive seperative:
To duel quote the conversation referenced earlier:
"Yea, to clarrify, the Goblin race is one block
You cut that up into chunks for species
And you line them up to get evolution trees
Then the specialties you get are the subspecies and classes, such as Fire Lords or Wind Lords"
"Let's be honest here
The author of Re:Monster is an average man trying to write an above average novel, with varying levels of success depending on the day he is writing
He overglosses in detail in order to try and cover up his lack of power when it comes to prose and diction
That, and he has an eating fetish the likes Toriko barely can surpass
So the science of Re:Monster, and popular terms, are fully his"
The point of discussion is simply to establish which English term we will insert into which of the three distinct areas to reference.
The core of a tree is the Race, the main branches are the species that evolve into other species, and then the paths of those branches are the classes. Blessings, influences, behaviors, and the sort only have influence on class and species, not which race in which you were born. The race is the unchangeable origin whilst everything else is up to fortune and divine intervention (PA)
in the body color section it says that the color of the body is corresponding to the blessing deity's color, so they can't have the standard color of their specis unless that's their god's color.
As for why I think it's better to use Sub-Species, that's because I noticed the pattern that any individual have special abilities like a mage, rider, etc.
I simply don't want new readers to read about Rou being a variant in his Hobgoblin days then misunderstand that all Lords have blessings
Thank you for your time
Edit: WhiteSamurai the part about mutation you talked about is absolutely correct, and in that sense even mages and riders etc. are variants, but I'm talking about what class do the individual Lords have. Thank for the warm advice.
The Days are locked for protective reasons, before some people with ill intent tried to ruin the translations.
To edit those pages you must have a wikia account and be active here since at least 4 days I think, something that should be your case really soon.
I understand that it's frustrating to be blocked when wanting to do good, and will discuss of a way to prevent this from happening again
I think that it's important for this to be said: Thank you for your translation, anything better than the GT is good for us. What we seek first is more translated days, next we could think about the quality and perfection ^^
About 'Curse', for units it's a little tricky to get, as it requires certain past event's drops or Cursed Blood, which is obtainable on Monday Daily Dungeon, tho it's a rare drop.
To ensure you got the materials to make her learn it, tap on her next rank up on the chart, so it displays the required skills and which materials can be eaten by the unit to do so. Anything that appears as 4 squares is a material you haven't obtained thus far.
I'm thinking about reorganizing the current page by using Templates (like with Rou or the 8 Demon Generals). The actual page is really heavy and modifying it's content is becoming more troublesome (can't access anymore to "visual" when editing)
I would like your advice about what to put in each template and in the principal page. Here is my idea:
principal: anything in the gameplay category and above
Seems good, later on I've noticed as well that edits can only be done efficiently on Source editor. I don't have much experience on editing pages but if you need a helping hand I'm here. Give me a brief explanation and I'll do whatsoever I can ^^
Nah. as you said it seems to be fine. Almost all the weight on the page is due to the multiple galleries. Having the whole gallery on one template and the mc froms on another will make it more handfull. The tips section is growing as well, so having it aside is good for the cause.
Hello Joker, do you know if it'd be possible for someone to do some work as a proofreader for the mobile game's translations?
I must thank wholeheartedly the entire team that is doing them, since without their work I wouldn't be able to enjoy the game, but from what I remember there are some "spelling errors" which might confuse people that have difficulties with english comprehension, thus prompting me to ask you this question.
Yet being possible I'm afraid it won't do, as the agreement we got with Alphapolis dennies us the option of letting anyone outside the translation team access to the translation before they see it.
To be honest, we've been having some issues during the last week and the translations weren't sent, so that may have caused some of the mistakes you may have seen (we're far from being perfect but we do commit less mistakes than our japanese fellahs).
I kindly appreciate the interest on the translation effort and, before ending, a tip: Do not falter to message me every single time you find a possible mistake.
Despite the fact that we don't need more people on the TL team, we may kick-out a lazy proof-reader... and his chair may become yours if you prove to be sharp enough to see what he misses ^^
As I said, I can understand it pretty easily but sometimes I question who wrote what because of the grammar used and it gets in my head a little bit
I'm currently working on a excel sheet to try to make it easier for people to findwhere to get each and every ability/item - I think there are some in japanese but I havent found any in english ( I'm still starting so it'll take a lil while but I'll get there )
I'll come here once in a while to ask some questions and maybe answer others ( if I can ) so if you want to tell me something, either reply to me or answer me in my page.
PS: In the item box, it should be Received History instead of Recived History :P
Cutscenes are included on the same field as buttons. But appreciate the tip, I'll throw it to Alpha.
Regarding those abilities (except the goblin puch and the howl, those are Japanese made), yeah... I know the guy that made them. Luckily I kicked his ass out.
I bet that more abilities that share a similar text display the same mistakes, am I wrong? We'll correct it but I cannot ensure you that those corrections will see the light as, since the game went into the beta English mode, our translations seem to be ignored / not fully applied.
Exactly. Many abilities share the same/nearly the same text thus having the same errors, sadly, which is why I didnt post every single one here ( I also don't have every one unlocked since I'm still kinda new so I guessed it was better to hold on for a bit ).
About the cutscenes, its sad because they had really broken english... but oh well, what can one to do?
Nevertheless, there are some abilities like Army Commander that have really cryptic text ( what the hell does ally capacity increase do ? ) and should be replaced in order to be more easily understood.
I will keep sending you pics in batches from time to time as I unlock more and more stuff and go further in-game. ( I have a serious shotage of construction materials which impedes me from improving my base T_T and is the sole bottleneck of my improvement).
Hey Joker, it's me, sveinfyr, I had to create another account since I got blocked for some reason... can you help me? idk how long this one will last if the other was blocked wrongly. I've already sent the following message to support:
The only things I have done is post images to support my questions ( showing text/buttons ) on the comments screenI have also contacted some of the translating team (namely a user called JokerXIII ) to help them translate the game faster by sending them pictures which show what's wrong/ mispelled and should be changed, which can be seen on this thread: http://re-monster.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:40863#4
As for the reason for sending this message, I was blocked by a user ( or bot maybe ) called VSTF and the reason stated was vandalism ( as is shown is the picture I send in with this message ).
Now, as I have said, I haven't done anything of the sort, simply having messaged other members of the re:monster wikia for the occasional question/answer.
I'd like an answer as to why I was actually blocked since I think I've been wrongfully accused of something I didn't do.If more photographic evidence is required, I'll be happy to oblige and send it.
I'm waiing for an answer
Have a good day,
Now, about the evidence, you can confirm everything I said because I really haven't done anything else, especially not vandalism. Here is the blocked user message I got:
If you can, please help me...I'm sorry for the problems I might've caused
PS: In case this acc gets blocked too, contact me by email if you would:
