Oh, ok. Just wondering. Anyway, the reason I wanted to speak with you was because you've been an editor here for nearly six months and doing great work. Once you've been a steady editor for a solid six months and if you are interested, I would like you to consider becoming a co-admin with me. In my definition of the role (not FANDOM's) it means we collaborate on whatever is going on with the wiki, which is to say we discuss things as a team before making any major changes. Minor corrections of an edit, of course, do not need such double checking, but I've seen how you work and I feel confident in your abilities.
If you feel you can give time to this wiki in such a way, I would like to move forward with the upgrade as of Nov 15th. That will give me a chance to post a general message to the community-at-large about the nomination to see if there is any feedback - pos or neg, but I want to know your feelings first.
This is very interesting timing. I have been thinking of way to get myself on a writing schedule so I can get rid of my anxiety towards writing and have the process become smoother. I would take the offer however, I've been recently promoted to discussion moderator in another wiki. It attracts a young audience and needs a fair amount of moderating. At this point I will not be able to commit the time needed for this wiki. Thank for the offer though.
I have a page setup that has all the missing chapter pages. A few months back someone created nearly all the chapter pages but it's just a skeleton needs to filled in. I started with 60s. You can check the link, it's my taskbox.
S'me, Angelle. You are now in the thick of what a dedicated editor does for a wiki. It's something most casual editors don't realize as they usually just want to add an item or two and disappear or to see their name show up in "Wiki Activity." Being a true Wiki Editor means doing just what you are doing and doing well, Ty. I'm aware of that. Just want you to know that I appreciate everything that you're doing.
By the way, I've posted an message on Tumblr inviting people to vote in our latest poll and to promote our manga chapter editing project. Hopefully, someone will take us up on the advert. Angelle 23:26, August 15, 2019 (UTC)
I've updated the Main Page with a very visible message and posted a similar one on Community Feeds. Hopefully, it will bring in some editorial assistance. But even if it doesn't, don't stress this. There's no pressure here. This is supposed to be fun, remember? As an editor myself, I know that feeling of wanting to see something "completed," but the more editing you do, the more you realize that there's really no end to it. It's always evolving. Besides, real life has a way of hitting you hard and you realize that what we do online for fun isn't very important, though it's helpful to us/others in escaping reality for a bit. So...relax and just do what you can, when you can. It's all good. Really. Angelle 17:58, July 29, 2019 (UTC)
Ty, I'm curious as to why you felt a need to create a Task Page when the wiki already has a page called Pages Needing Attention that covers everything you said and more. I'll allow the page to stay provided you modify it asap to address the formatting of the manga chapters only. Where do you propose this page appear within the wiki?
Also, please note that Wikis are not to be edited as assigned tasks to individual editors nor do pages "belong" to an editor to be completed. They are edited as open-ended documents where anyone can edit any page at any time. This, of course, means that a sign-up sheet is disallowed. Editing is completely voluntary and at the discretion of the editor, as they see fit. That's how wikis operate. I'll be around over the weekend to see how the page is amended. I know you understand.

I created the page based on a discussion conversation []. Since this wiki doesn't have heavy traffic and few people actually contribute worthy edits I suggested a task page. The page was just to keep track of what needs to be done and what's in progress. It would be wasteful for the few editors that are here to work on the same thing hence the sign-up sheet.
The editors that are here have expressed some feelings of being overwhelmed by the amount of work. We want to see this wiki filled. Having a singular page listing can give us a better idea on how to go about making this wiki as complete as possible. Do we work as a team going by volume or randomly fill in chapters?
I know wiki pages do not "belong" to anyone. On my profile I have listed summaries that I plan on doing. I would not be vexed if another editor came and filled chapter summaries I wanted to do. I would be happy. I might even ask for tips on how to write summaries faster (it takes about 2 hours for me to write/type a chapter summary).
Ah so. I'm glad there are a few people willing to help out at this point and editing wikis do take time, but it's always a labor of love and a hobby, not a job. If writing full summaries is too much, a short synopsis of each chapter is sufficient. I also suggest that if you wish to continue with tackling this as a group project with individual "assignments," you move the Task Page to your Profile, where you and the others can track progress without it appearing "official." That way it will also remain as you intend, yet everyone can see what needs to be done. If this is agreeable to you, I will post a message on the Main Page and on Community Feeds about this Special Project pointing to the Task Page with an explanation so other editors can find it and join if they want to help out. I believe this is a fair compromise made in good faith. Let me know if this works for you. Angelle 12:21, July 27, 2019 (UTC)
Ty, It's been nearly a day and I haven't heard back from you on my suggestion. I would like to work together with you on this project, but there are limitations as to what can and cannot be done. You're an enthusiastic new editor "learning the ropes" of this wiki. Each wiki has its quirks so how things are handled here may differ from other wikis on which you edit and there are no rights or wrongs - just different. I hope to hear from you within the next 24 hours. I offer you this opportunity to provide a response to my suggestion either by way of acceptance or counter-proposal. In the meanwhile, be well. Angelle 11:16, July 28, 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for responding. This is fine. I will post that message, but right now I am heading to a wake for a family member and am also very upset about the news regarding Futoshi Nishiya, who has been reported as having died following the arson attack on Kyoto Animation last week. He was, of course, the Chief Animation Director for the Free! series. This is a tragic loss not only for his family and friends, but for the industry and for the franchise. A new project - likely the final project for the series - was slated for release next summer, but that is now in question. To have someone so talented die at so young an age is heart-breaking. Well, I must go. I will tend to this matter a bit later, but no later than tomorrow.
Thank you for everything you are doing and for working on behalf of the wiki which, after all, is the reason we are all here. Angelle 17:55, July 28, 2019 (UTC)
