QuoteFor reasons they state, verifiability and stuffs.
How the heck does one cite Japanese online sources, and an image board whose content changes every hour, every minute? no internet archive can possibly record everything on there. Wikipedia's rules aren't very nice to a subject such as OS-tans, where verifiable sources are quite lacking.


Good point. However, you're preaching to the choir. Most of my information is based on conjecture and stuff I've deduced. I think we should start a wiki, or at least a database here on the website. I've already started to write articles.

We definitely need Fedora-dono's input.  Remember, this forum was once simply part of a main project page, so i wonder if he'd be interested in resurrecting such a feature, be it Wiki-like or traditional.

A wiki would be a great way to have an OS-tan repository essentially build itself up (cause I can attest that doing one yourself is a handful...  ^^'

But it does come with the added risk of vandalism, so you really have to be sure you're committed to making the building of it a group project.  Otherwise, a quick refugee site similar to this one....

... should be enough to keep the character descriptions safe and gradually expanded until we can invest the time and resources in an OS-tan Wiki.

NewYinzer

Well...I kinda took the wikipedia page and adapted it into a series of small blurbs. For example:

QuoteMe-tan:
The more cutesy personification of the much maligned and infamously unreliable Windows Me Operating System, Me-tan was the first OS-tan created. She is usually known as Me-tan, but is often called Emui-san. She was created by the one now called "ME-aki". ME-tan's appearance rarely varies and is instantly recognizable. She has green hair in long pigtails and wears a maid outfit with an exclamation mark badge on the front modeled after the Windows error icon. ME-tan is a hard worker and always wants to help her master (Toshiaki), but predictably fails at everything she tries to do, and often literally crashing and irritating her sisters. When she is not frozen or out of control, she tends to do things showing a lack of common sense or knowledge, such as putting soda into a microwave oven or attempting to kill people by swinging a scallion or crowbar. In spite of, or perhaps due to, her pitiful plight, the clumsy ME-tan is one of the most beloved OS girls.

Sorry for the necropost, but we might or might not be reviving this thread with a vengeance very soon.  ^___^

Testing, testing.... -v-






See if that does anything....

Now (most of) the OS-kuns have Wiki pictures too! Can't forget them! (although I actually not too fond of the Windows-kuns) And so do Firefox-ko and uhh.... I forgot who the pink-haired girl is! ^^;

SeaMonkey-tan.  ^v^

Have to do an Nvu-tan late, so we can preemptively salvage the Moezilla article before Wikipedia deletes it.  ^__^

Then we can work on the other missing OS-kuns (such as Kyurou-kun and the OSX-kuns, which I'm sure were the ones you had on your mind... ^__^')

QuoteAlso, I didn't know the 98-kuns existed, so I can't confirm whether those designs are canon (they're mostly depicted as young men in mechs, though).


Though I'm by no means an expert, what few renditions I've seen appear much like unto those depicted above, though I never knew their "Other Forms" were 'Mechs! better go change the Wiki.

Later:

There, I've uploaded all the OS-Kun's picture into their respective articles (except 3.1-kun, who doesn't have an article yet!)

Good work, Tsubashi-san.  
Primary Mission Objectives Complete!
The Emperor will be pleased!  ^__^

Too bad I know next to nothing about 3.1-kun, so we'll have to play his article be ear....  ^^;

Tsubashi

QuoteToo bad I know next to nothing about 3.1-kun


I was surprised when I saw your upload of him. I've never even heard of 3.1-kun, so I'm afraid I can't really add anything to the wiki about him. Cool that you found him though!

Fedora-Tan

Nothing very interesting to say there, except you're really doing an excellent and awesome work on the wiki ! Congrats ^_^

C-Chan

Thank you.  ^__^

Maybe keeping the discussion here is worthwhile after all.  ^v^'

Still need to change the name, though.  -.-

Hehe,... I can sorta relate with the 98-kuns.  ^^'
Worse comes to worse, we can always create a placeholder page with the picture, and worry about a substantial description later.  ^__^

The Nvu-tan page (when it's done) will probably look the same way.  ^.^'

NewYinzer

Since we stopped editing Wikipedia, I have altered this thread in order to better coordinate our Wiki editing efforts. So, does anyone have anything to say?

C-Chan

Yo NewYinzer.  ^^

For starters, we're still wondering whether to post here or at the Discussion Panel:

http://ostan-collections.net/wiki/Talk:List_of_OS-tans

NewYinzer

Better make it the discussion panel. This thread just ain't doin' its job anymore.

C-Chan

Yah sure about that...?  ^.^

http://ostan-collections.net/viewtopic.php?p=13353#13353

...it's got potential.  -v-

Besides,...

A) It's easier to keep on top of new postings here with using email notification on Wiki.  ^^

B) Less places for the global Mods to mod.  ^__^

C) I can post pictures here, but not on Discussion Panel.  -v-

Seems I'm developing a bias against my own work, but "A" and "C" are bigs things for me.  ^^;
