This is my first blog, and I'm really not sure what to say. Hello?
Sorry if I'm a bit distracted, there's a sodding party happening three houses up and it's filled with teenagers all off their faces on cheap vodka being far too loud for this time of night. I may break off from this to swear at them from time to time. Please excuse any accidental rudeness that might be conveyed.
I like this wiki. The users (those who I've talked to on chat anyway) all seem friendly enough to newcomers, even if it devolves into casual insult with familiarity. They've certainly been willing to advise me on how to edit more efficiently, including such tips as "If I say yes, will you stop bothering me?" and "stfu nova". I feel that - one moment.
"KEEP IT DOWN YOU LITTLE *****"
Err, sorry. My life in general has been marginally enlivened by this wiki, and the community who contribute. It certainly makes a change from sitting in my room playing old PC games all summer, waiting for term to start. But at this rate, it's likely that I'll stay active even in the midst of university 'life'.
On to other matters, then. It's clear that this wiki has some dedicated users in certain areas, but one area I've noticed to be particularly flawed is chapter and episode summaries, chiefly the early ones. To this end, I have begun rewriting the chapter summaries (very very slowly), so as to improve the wiki in my own way. This isn't difficult work, and it's clearly not as important as whether an image shows a spoon being knocked off someone's face or not, but it's editing I can do, so I shall do it, and hopefully go on to the episode pages as - *sigh*
"LISTEN YOU ******* *****, IT'S HALF 2 IN THE ******* MORNING, SHUT THE **** UP OR I'LL CALL THE ******* POLICE ON YOU"
Where was I? Ah yes, rewriting. It seems incredible that some of these chapter summaries were ever looked upon and uploaded. Allow me to insert this excerpt from Chapter 18 before I changed it to make any sense:
"Nami (having stolen the treasure already) is watching the fight while some of Buggy crew decide its best to pretend to be unconscious still rather than risk being killed if they get involved."
It's clear what the writer meant, but it clearly was in need of changing. That is, in general, the sort of edit I plan to be making on this wiki - fixing that which is broken. And speaking of breaking -
"RIGHT, THAT'S IT, I'VE CALLED THE POLICE, YOU ****** ***** ARE PAYING FOR THAT WINDOW"
I think it best if I retire here for now. I await your comment(s) with interest.
