How to contribute

If you're not sure where to begin contributing, take a look at Special:ShortPages and Special:WantedPages for lists of pages that could use attention the most. For now, the primary focus is to get information into this wiki; cleaning it up and making it more presentable can always be done later if you are concerned about the quality of your writing.

A suggestion

What do ya'll think about moving the quick links to the side bar and having the Serial Experiments Lain page move to Main Page and then delete Serial Experiments Lain? - ian2

Merging episode summaries, scripts, analyses?

I think it makes more sense to have a unified description including the scripts, summaries, analyses,, of episodes. The point is to have one document that does all of that. Perhaps marked up in a way that makes it easy to look at only certain aspects. Lainwashed Pseudofan---Now with more soap! 19:50, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

I'd agree with putting summary and analysis on the same article, but I do feel that the script is a bit different and deserves its own page because it's not really encyclopedic content, and is more just a data dump of source content. Bytor (talk) 22:08, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Lain history

Is it alright to talk about the history of the Lain community itself here? Quintuplicate (talk) 00:18, 31 January 2022 (UTC)

If you mean in the wiki itself, then yes, absolutely. I only request that you be mindful of how personal the information being posted is. I will admit that I will be more active in editorial control of language in topics relating to real world people and events, to try to ensure a neutral and factual tone is preserved.

Does Wikipedia's No original research rule apply here? Quintuplicate (talk) 08:27, 20 February 2022 (UTC)

I'm going to say no, but it isn't something I want to actively encourage. If you choose to do research and post the findings here in a way that is relevant then that's fine, but I think maintaining verifiability and npov is all the more important in that context.

Local area articles

Would it be OK to make articles like "Los Angeles" as a more permanent space to refer to and a resource hub when planning meetups of Lain fans? We have threads like this but they're ephemeral and in any case people from different regions are all mixed up together so it's not much of a help. Kind of like or,_California only for the Lain community.--Quintuplicate (talk) 16:49, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

I don't think this is the place for planning events - that would should happen in the community that is doing the event. I also don't think making an article for the location would be the right way to handle reporting the event. Instead, I think if meetups happen that are notable, the appropriate place would be on an article about the entity doing the meeting; so in this case, lainchan. Bytor (talk) 19:02, 13 March 2022 (UTC)
