So, Mark now has two separate playthroughs of Factorio on his channel; one solo and one co-op with Bob. Neocarleen decided to split them up, but I don't know how we should label them. Should they be considered as a singular playthrough, or should they be separated with each episode article noting the difference, and if so, how could we make them stand out more from one another (like adding something to the template to indicate that this is a second playthrough or separate co-op run)?
We already have many games (The Forest, Slender: The Arrival, [[[Minecraft]] and others) that are revisited becuase of a new version or personal reasons, the videos are numbered in a single order of release for the games, and a note can be added explaining the difference from the previous video in the list.
More technically, it's not "one solo and one co-op", it's one 2016 playthrough, Mark restarted and decided to invite Bob next episode, and a new playthrough that just started.
Does this ring a bell to you at all? This person claims they've supposedly seen or found evidence that Mark had a video of him playing Deltarune somewhere before deleting it for unknown reasons, yet I couldn't find anyone ever mentioning this let alone the actual video.
If Mark had a stream or a video of Deltarune even for 10 minutes it would be discussed on Twitter and Discord nonstop. That's quite an elaborate fanfic there, but for something "often debated" there's literally no mention of "THE FAMILIAR PRINCE", or even "Deltarune" and "Markiplier" together, anywhere.
What do you think of the Unus Annus thing? Mark made triple sure that he wants this to be "an experience for those who lived in the moment" and DMCA'd channels that reupload videos. He has the right to strike reuploads, but I believe creating a temporary content is... kinda dumb, in this age undoing something would require not uploading anything publicly to begin with. But this is the problem with how much these should be documented, just have a list? One article with notes? Have empty video articles, short descriptions, long descriptions, audio transcripts? Have them hidden under a subpage or open? I'd prefer have pages say as much as possible, but if the channel's point that things stop existing after some time, the site may be targeted.
Ye, I agree, it's kinda dumb to focus on temporary, 'one in a life time' content in the age of digital media where everything you do is extensively documented (plus, you also have to consider that not everyone who watches you is aware of this even being a thing and I'm not a big fan on capitalizing on the fear of missing out). When he first did this for 3AM AT THE KRUSTY KRAB on a stream, his viewers immediately backed it up and reuploaded it onto several places and others have outright said they're gonna be preserving Unus Annus videos despite the lack of Mark's consent.
Unless we directly reupload his content, there's nothing wrong with documenting it, it's within our rights. My idea was to basically create these pages as usual, same format, but for the separate channel with a separate episode flow (as in, we don't link them to his main channel). Maybe we can also make another episode template and change its color from the standard red to something like black and white to better reflect the page.
I like to think that if a livestream has multiple games, then it's not a dedicated episode for those games and put those in a separate livestreams list, especially since there are countless of those on Twitch, or it would require having the next and previous fileds for game1 game2 etc, or a separate navigation template. Videos would still be added to games page.
I guess he's Robert then, since he's fine with it, though he's literaly never been called that elsewhere.
Should Unus Annus videos have some overall summary of what happens in them seeing as Mark intends to delete this channel in a few months? Adding to that, do we need links to videos either since they'll no longer be available or do we just preserve the URLs for some reason?
BTW, I've never heard of Norbert Moses up until I started looking at Unus Annus' content, should this be just part of the Unus Annus page, or should it be considered its own separate channel article, even though its already been deleted.
At the end of Purging Our Sins with a Neti Pot, Mark says if they were to get 1 million subs by the end of the week when that video came out, they'll hand-deliver that channel's golden play button to a lucky subscriber. Did anything ever come out of that?
User:Blakelangermann2/Twitter contacted me on Twitter and claimed that he's blocked (it was like 2 months ago, why message now?) becuase his little brother made some edits while he was away. Considering his grammar and that he spammed you on Outlast Wiki, and now me, I don't think this excuse will slide. He still asks for the unblock and promises to do better, what do you think of it, should he get a chance?
Just to be sure, he's only offence bad grammar and putting unnecessary dots in the articles?
No clue why he contacted you 2 months after this nor why he's so obsessed with it. Yes, that's his only offense, continuous unnecessary edits across various articles. He made 20+ changes in less than 20 minutes, distorting a number of articles. There's always someone's imaginary brother behind the act.
One of the reasons I banned him is that he clearly doesn't know how to use a wiki and if you look at his various other contributions across FANDOM, he has been warned multiple times, even banned from some of the wikis, for failing to follow its code of conduct and guidelines. On top of that, he doesn't seem to have the grasp of basic English grammar, as most of his contributions are poorly structured. I frankly don't wanna bother with him, cause his edits are too sporadic and he constantly fails to improve on them, but if you wanna unban him, that's fine with me.
Should Unus Annus video list have its own sub-page seeing as its a major channel in Mark's history and it's got an entire series worth of videos? If so, maybe we can alight it alongside other sub-pages (2012, 2013, etc.) on the 'list of videos' article.
Haven't really been paying attention (I should now that it's close to ending) so don't know about the others, it most likely may've happened offscreen. But for the third one I think you mean these 1, 2, 3.
Appears to be the case, it gave me "bitly (Block #471260)" error and a link to some licensing page.
Not that I like having shortlinks anyway, people can put whatever they want there and checking where they lead takes some time, so I had replaced such links if there were any. Not to mention some redirects can have extra inside them.
BTW, since Mark's father and grandad both have the same name, wouldn't that make Mark's dad Cliffton Jr.?
EDIT: I've also been thinking, what if we only list people on the wiki if they've appeared at least 3 times alongside Mark and are not somehow directly or indirectly related to him? Since there are pages of people who appeared once alongside him in a one-off video.
What do you think of Unus Annus' challenge section; is it fine as it is or should something be done to rearrange it? Cause I wanted to list all the important ones on a single page to showcase some of their major events, but just look at this giant drop list (and I've only gotten through the first 5 months so far). My major issue is that the sub-headers are kind of flooding the page, but I can't figure out a workaround and I don't think creating a sub-page would help either.
Sidenote: I've sourced some of the stuff on the wiki from various Unus Annus videos, what do we do with those citations once the videos get removed? Do we just leave them as they are and just use it as a reference point for video titles and timestamps?
Weird, I thought pop-ups were part of the coding by default.
Also, should friends even be a category? Technically, most articles relating to these individuals are often Mark's close or longtime friends, so it's kind of redundant at that point. Should it be removed or should we get a better alternative for them, a more professional sounding category if you will?
Doesn't sound like a useful information if there are no visible differences, and there were only 4 of them who never worked at the same time. It's probably a safe bet any video after February 2019 is edited by Lixian unless it's a vlog or on the other channel.
BTW, you have any idea why The Deep End of Omegle: Risky Boogaloo was ever claimed by a third party? I didn't even know this video existed until I saw that there was a gap between March 30th and April 1st in his videos. You can still see it on other video sharing platforms under the same name.
Do you know what outro song was used for this video? I was updating some old stuff and randomly ran into it.
Also, do you by any chance know what the actual difference is between Unus Annus' touchusannus and quarantannus? Touch is suppose to be them donated cash to charity every single time they touch their face, but I don't get what quarantannus is suppose to be.
They actually used both terms simultaneously, quarant came after touchous, but I'm not entirely sure to what it specifically applies to. I'm not past April yet, so they might eventually mention it somewhere. Touchus ended in this video.
Sidenote, any chance you could complete the missing lists for games and videos? I'm working on a bunch of other stuff at the moment.
As for the Unus Annus table for challenges, I can't recall how to exactly build rows. What am I suppose to change on this code to create a separate row beneath instead of a column for the summary box. Here's a reference of what I mean.
BTW, I didn't pose the template question correctly; The example I gave you were two templates in one, how do I list another table inside an already existing one so that the page looks like this (that giant summary box beneath the header) and not like the current one.
Something I noticed whilst going through pictures, the only wiki badge without a Markiplier-themed picture and title is Pounced! You got any ideas what the badge could look like, the requirement is do 100 edits within an hour of the page's creation.
And is the Discord app image planned for anything or can I just delete it?
Mark's page reads that he has 3 channels outside his main one. Besides the original and twitch one, which one's suppose to be his third or is that some false info?
EDIT: Is there any more information about Mark's dogs in general? Some vague post mentions their age and apparently Buddi was owned by Mark's stepmom, but I can't cite those.
Edit Edit: Would it be safe to say that Cliffton had three kids with Dee, David, Elizabeth and Susan, since his obituary states that he had those 3 additional kids and, as far as we know, he was only married twice.
Mark has a Discord server, but it's private and was open only a few times. (Why are there mupltiple Markiplier Manor wikis, how much lore did it get...?) I guess the icon is useless now.
I suppose it refers to markiplier2, a short-lived Minecraft channel. It only got two series, which were later moved to Minecraft Highlights (not all of them) and "Markiplier's Minecraft Adventure | YogBox Edition".
In one or two vlogs when Mark was at home he mentioned that like 2 dogs are owned by his stepmom and 4 others by his mom. Worth checking.
I think it's a safe assumption, not sure it's safe mentioning. I think Mark mentioned having step-sisters like once.
The "E" wiki love badge just made me laugh, that's a good edition.
That's a lot of mannor wikis, is that part of Who Killed Markiplier series? I'll comb through them and see if they have any info. (Edit: Which ones were you referring to exactly? I only ever found one and another random fanfiction wiki that has a page relating to the manor)
Should we list markiplier2 somewhere, is there even any kind of source? The channel doesn't seem to exist anymore.
I suppose Buddi was owned by his stepmom, as I've never seen Sunok with her.
Do you have any good ideas for a navbox for the very top of Mark's page? My idea was to list all the sub-pages and prop them above for easier navigation; think of something like this (not necessarily in that style, just the location and layout of the template).
I completely forgot, wanted to ask you this for a while, what do you think of this thing for the wiki; Witcher series has a different story between its books/tv show and games, so when you click on the game-related article, the background and its wiki wordmark differ compared to the one from the tv show. What do you think of implementing this for the Unus Annus section of the Markiplier wiki?
Probably should mention markiplier2 is history somewhere. Wait, it's already mentioned. Mark also briefely talked about it but dunno when.
Interesting idea for a navbox, let me add something like that...
That is pretty amazing and I have no idea how Witcher wiki is doing that, but their css has a lot of clues. The point of this would be to tell that it's as much Ethan's input as Mark and it's not Mark's subchannel. A good solution would be make either make a copy for CrankGameplays Wiki or make a new wiki for it. But one is practically empty and the other already exists and seems to be deep in roleplay, and almost dead as well. I'll try doing something about it.
If videos are saved and not manually DMCA'ed, they should stay up forever, though they may have higher requirements than they pages they're on and may not load.
Yes, but they're mostly anime/manga wikis, they have stories that tend to stretch for years, if not decades. If Mark's bio ever gets too large for the main page, I'll move it back. I still haven't finished his early YouTube years to present.
Alright, let me know if you find or need help with anything, I'll be sure to look through it myself once I've completed Unus Annus, I've got like a month left to catch up.
Oh, never mind, I didn't see they were already up on the page. Ignore my statement.
I actually wanted to make a separate background and wordmark for the unus annus article. The background can just be Mark and Ethan in their suits, but I was wondering, do the background's settings apply for both images? Like, how the current wiki background infinitely multiples, is that rule applied for the unus annus one as well or can it be separate?
Here's something weird that I've never seen before, I went to check on their basic UA bio, and I saw the channel's founding date change from time to time (screens: , ). What in the world is causing this?
Do you remember where this box is located at? I want to remove those upper notices, they don't serve any purpose, no one reads them and they just clutter the edit page. Plus, they don't show up for people using visual or phone editors.
For CSS I'm waiting to js edit to get verified (importing scripts from dev wiki shouldn't be reviewd tbh) before continuing, I want just one list of pages with what colors they change, not a copy of a list for every page element.
BTW, you're prob. aware of this, but our Wiki's gonna get upgrade soon, you should save anything if you have any threads and messages lying around that you need, otherwise they'll disappear from walls, and will only be visible under your contribution history.
Decided to ditch the script since it doesn't actually make the css shorter, it just does what I've done anyway automatic, so there's no point. It should work on every UN page made so far until more added.
I'm slowly catching up with Unus Annus stuff, but I still haven't seen most of it. Are you familiar with their SCP stuff on the channel? Apparently, at one point, they redesigned their Unus Annus alter-egos to act like SCP monsters or something.
Also, are you by any chance able to find anything relating to Mark's mother's birthdate? There's no reference on her page and I have no clue where it comes from. There are others as well, but I can't confirm which one's her's.
