Once those things get done i think Beyblade wiki will turn out to be an amazing resource for new bladers. I also think it's a bit too hasbro based, it's probably just me but i would prefer if it was more Japanese based since they are the creators, and just have the Hasbro stuff as a side note on the actual article. I am definitely willing to help out on this project.
Haha, yeah, the Wiki needs a lot of work, but that's what this project is all about. By merging the content from both Wikis, presenting the Wiki as a WBO project and working on everything together, we hope to create a well-presented Wiki that is the go-to place for Beyblade information. We've all been extremely excited for this when we've been planning it, and now it's just a matter of getting everything transitioned and cleaned.
I do understand the Hasbro point completely. I'm also used to the original terminology however, as I mentioned in another thread earlier
, we're using Hasbro terminology because it's far better for our SEO and brings in more readers, specifically children who have picked up the Hasbro toys or watched the dubbed show. It's a sacrifice we make to make the Wiki a better place in my opinion, haha.
It's nice that you're willing to help out! We're slowly getting things started over in the Beywiki Project board, so it's worth hopping over there and seeing what needs doing. We're also distributing Overseer rights to those who join our dedicated Wiki team, so that's a nice incentive as well and gives you a few extra editing tools!

Do you think it's possible to disable the Flash Player Plugin ?
Hmm, peculiar. Would you mind PMing me with some information on the computer/device you're viewing the Wiki on so I can see if I can replicate the issue on my end? It could very well be something on Wikia's end but I'd like to see if I can dig through and see if any errors pop up.

Indeed. I'm investigating ways to crop down on this file size now, as it does appear to be the images that are causing the issue.
