I finally made a template for the see also thingie for the multiple game videos Mark makes these days (like 5 FNAF Fan Games). But I'm not sure what the title should be (See also doesn't seem like the best title). Any suggestions on what to name this series? Here's the template.
Yeah, I guess i'll leave it as See Also for now. Another thing i wanted to ask, do the charity livestreams count as episodes for the game Mark's playing? For example, Mark played PUBG, Minecraft and Sea of Thieves in the April Charity Livestream. So is this livestream to be added in the games' episode list?
That's always been a problem and already is kinda a mess. I'd want to count "official" episodes those that are in the playlists or have 'Part #' in the title, and those that are not as bonuses. But you should add all related videos to the respective games anyway.
I don't remember if we ever reached a concrete conclusion of this or if nothing ever came of it, but I feel the need to bring it up again: Should the livestreams be considered separate from live action episodes? I always found it strange that, whatever the reason, they were included in it, despite basically being their own genre of videos.
The ones that he's doing nothing for 20 minutes with facecam and then plays? In my perspective, these are not live action, because there's no "action". Not something that has a script with a scene, just a part of the pre-gameplay procedures. I also have problem counting some of them as regular gameplay, naturally because there's more than 2-3 games.
Exactly. I never wanted to shoehorn livestreams as just a series of standard Let's Plays since, like I said, due to their unique format, livestreams are basically their own kind of video genre, and should be treated as such. I am proposing that a new navigation (subsequently, a new infobox)be created specifically for livestreams.
But if this happens, I should mention a snag: What if a livestream, such as the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy episode HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!, is an official episode of a game? Well, in that case, it should be counted as exactly what it is: a livestream and a Let's Play. In other words, how about double navigation?
(shamwow? shoehorn? autocorrect?) Guess why I made the MEpisode template, will try to improve it over some multi-game stream, if I don't forget.
But I don't see what needs to be changed with HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!, it's a regular episode (sure, talking to chat sometimes) with Category:Livestreams attached, can't think of adding anything new.
If by navigation you mean making "previous stream - next stream" section, I can think about that. There will be a full list of streams though. The problem would be Twitch streams, that are obviously not on Youtube.
We've never added Twitch materials to the Wiki, beside Charity (which really needs to be updated). I don't know how to navigate with them, as they can't be added to List of Videos. Also some of the streams were not saved and deleted 2 weeks after broadcast, but many survived.
Some time ago I mentioned the possibility of a family tree that either you or NGTV stated would fit on the Fischbach family category page. Are you still on board with that, and, if so, any ideas on how to make it?
How did you originally find this wiki and what compelled you to make it what it is today?
1. The information about Mark's family isn't public. Well, it is on the internet, but we're sticking nose into private matters. I'm 100% sure that the known family tree is accurate, but until Mark outloud names his father, this may be dangerous.
2. I can't fully remember, it was over a year since I was subscribed, so I wanted to do something tribute-like, and found this site, that looked like it was filled with cobwebs, so I just took it. It was summer, around time when I was finishing school, so I didn't really have better things to do at the time.
Just went and fixed that for Bob, (though, I wonder if it's better to just replace Bob (Surgeon Simulator) with link to the game). If somebody appears with any names we know, which is still a low possibility, that sure would require an quick fix.
What is the purpose of having a category for "games played on livestream"? We already list specific videos that were streamed live, what's the purpose of listing a specific game? Gaming categories should predominantly revolve around the type of game Mark played for the sake of easier navigation.
We agreed for their prominent names. IDK about Bob and Wade, I suggested for Thomas and Tyler because Mark collaborated with similarly named individuals. I suggest naming Jack's category Jacksepticeye since there's also JacksFilms; so that we can easily tell them apart.
I don't really mind continuing this topic, but it will need more arguments.
I don't know of anyone else named Tyler or Ethan (or at least someone who collaborates with Mark as often as them) that could get confused with Tyler and Ethan. If you can think of someone who does, then by all means, tell me.
If not, then I think it unnecessary to include their full names.
Oh, that.. 'Twas tinkering with the source code on multiple wikis' main pages (including this one) to make a main page for this wiki I semi-recently was granted adminship of. I think I hit publish because I didn't want to close the tab, not seeing I changed something. Did it do anything noticeable?
Has the Markiplier Wiki ever been featured on Mark's channel or mentioned by him, or one of his friends? I ask because the Game Theorists Wiki was recently featured on GTLive (MatPat's livestream gaming archive channel), and I was wondering if anything like that has ever happened to this wiki.
Edit: I was also wondering if the "Vlog Videos" category could be renamed to simply "Vlogs". Having "Videos" added to it is simply pointless.
