Hi guys! I have good news! We have decided on November's Featured User! This month's user is Ginhikari! He has been an active editor for the past several months! In an interview with him, here's what he had to say:
1.How did you find the Bleach Wiki?
Well, that’s actually a difficult question since it was so long ago. But if I remember correctly I was beginning to really like Bleach at the time and I felt that I wanted more information about the series and that I wanted to find a place where there were people other than me who like Bleach. I googled “Bleach”, looked at the pages that came up and saw something called “Bleach Wiki”. I decided to have a look at it and soon I was reading the articles and later on also the weekly chapter reviews on the wiki regularly.
2.What do you like most about the Wiki?
That’s also a difficult question; I’d say that I like most things about it. But if I am to say that there’s something I like the most I’d say it is the fact that this wiki is very well organised, it’s got all the relevant information presented in a very professional way.
3.What made you start editing here?
When I finally started editing I had already been reading on the wiki for a long time, and during that time I started to notice small things that were wrong in the different articles. Perfectionist as I am, it annoyed me greatly to see for example the small grammatical or spelling errors that nobody else seemed to notice, so eventually I worked up the courage to get an account and started editing. I also wanted to be able to comment on the weekly chapter reviews and thereby be able to discuss Bleach, but that was not my primary reason.
4.How do you go about editing?
I simply read through the articles and look for any eventual errors (like spelling or grammar or whatever it may be) or missing information, and then I correct these problems to the best of my ability. And if there’s some big change that needs to be done I of course discuss it on the talk page. I also try to incorporate information from new chapters into the appropriate pages when they come out.
5.If there is anything you would add or change about the wiki, what would it be?
There’s nothing I can think of, I like Bleach Wiki the way it is now.
6.What words of advice would you give to other users on the wiki?
Please don’t violate any of the Wiki’s policies; they exist to ensure that the wiki stays as marvellous as it currently is. If your edits are undone or your pictures are deleted or whatever it may be, read the policies and you’ll find out why. And if you still don’t understand you can always discuss it on the talk page or ask a committee member or admin. If you instead try to do it again you’ll simply be warned and eventually blocked. I’d also encourage all users to simply be polite and respectful, and please do try to be logical. I hope you all enjoy being on this wiki as much as I do!
Congratulations Ginhikari, and keep up the good work.
