(As it is I'm having a hard time finding a way to have two info boxes on there w/o it looking clunky.)That "low-res doodle" is actually a nice piece of artwork that was uploaded in 2009. And of course there were ie-tans before this inori chick. A simple gallery search coulda told you that. >>;
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on November 24, 2013, 10:18:11 pmhm, that could work, though i'd recommend keeping a blurb at the bottom of the IE-tan page. if you want some inspiration, go over to the 7-tan page, there's like, 10 different descriptions there (a couple of which were Microsoft sponsored).i'm only miffed at you for not thinking of it. there have been -tans for every major browser since the os-tans started back in 03. stands to reason that there would be IE-tans out there this whole time. (also, the original blurb was written back in 08 or 09. a lot has happened since then.)if you want my advice, do more legwork when you write an article. take inspiration from the ones out there and do more research. a kickass article doesn't take an hour, it takes days. (or several hours if you're insane like me and write the whole Nijiura article in an insane 12-hour stretch that lands you in bed at 6am. -w-; )

Quote from: Chocofreak13 on November 25, 2013, 10:32:53 ami am going to contest that bing girls page considering1. it was me who wrote the whole 7-tan article2. the bing girls were a promotion released by microsoft as themepacks for windows 7, thus they don't go with any other OS/browser/etc3. they have never (and likely never will) represent any sort of Bing-tan, so making a seperate page for them when they don't even have an infobox seems....friviolous.the difference between them and Inori is that Inori has enough information for her own article. i don't think the Bing Girls do. i'm moving the information back. >>;btw, was there a technical details section of the windows 7 page, or did you delete it? .__.;EDIT: reading over the bing girls article as we speak and i need to say THEY DO NOT PERSONIFY THE BING ENGINEI HAVE NO IDEA WHERE YOU GOT THAT FROMthey were PROMOTING it, but they do not REPRESENT it. they're just random themepacks, it seems, nothing more than a marketing campaign. do you guys know if spoiler tags will work on the wiki? because that seems like it could be very useful here in keeping the windows 7 article size down. :\
Quote from: Chocofreak13 on November 25, 2013, 05:24:49 pm*pinches forehead*the bing girls have NOTHING to do with ANYTHING other than windows 7. they were made SOLELY as a marketing campaign, and have not appeared since they were created. they were barely given any personality and frankly, finding the themepacks is a bitch now. if it wasn't for my putting them on the article in the first place, i doubt anyone would remember them anyway. without a technical section to go off of, or an individual item to represent (as they STILL do not represent bing itself, just promoted it), they are little more than an accessory for windows 7. having a seperate article JUST FOR THEM is nothing more than wiki clutter.if nothing else, their section is a wee bit long and makes the 7-tan article seem a little overdone. but that could easily be fixed with some sort of spoiler tag, if possible.and even if it's not, who cares? 9 times out of 10, more information is better than less. >>;
Quote from: Bella on November 25, 2013, 08:43:05 pmThe Inori page looks good Dustii, the only change I would suggest is modifying the Lineage section, since Inori / IE-tan isn't a part of the Windows NT family. I mean, I guess she's associated with them, but Lineage specifically references bloodline. ("Internet Explorer" should suffice as far as lineage goes.)Also, I think the Bing girls should have a page separate from Nanami, since they're completely tangential to Nanami / Windows 7-tan. As for lack of information, that's something that plagues a LOT of -tans. It's never stopped anyone from making articles before.
