KIzuna Ai, Mirai Akari,Nekomiya Hinata, and Kaguya Luna have Nendoroids now.
What's on your mind?
I'm thinking of doing changes in the VTuber templates:
1) removing "weight" as that is a quite inexistant factor in the virtual world, and the vast majority don't provide such a number.
2) adding a "unicode symbol" line as many VTubers use such a symbol to identify themselves. (e.g. see Hololive schedule tweets twitter.com/hololivetv/status/1116741149681602560 ).
Based on Merriam-Webster, trivia is defined as "unimportant matters", while Oxford Dictionaries gives the definition as "details, considerations, or pieces of information of little importance or value". With this in mind, most of what's written about VTubers are put in the trivia section even for activities that I wouldn't call trivial such as being the host of a TV program as seen on [[Siro]]'s page or history of their activities while being a YouTuber such as [[Baacharu]]'s page describing his quitting VTuber activity in the trivia instead of a dedicated history section. I suggest that trivia be used as only for facts that are of little importance to their overall VTuber activities while their VTuber activities and history (hiatus, character design update, changing to a 3D model, song release, controversies, retirement, etc.) are in a separate section such as.
I was looking the case of characters such as A-chan or Pandy, who albeit not having their own channel, they do activities on their own and do collaborations. This is the case of Osanai Ichika as well. I think this can't be applied to all sidekicks, because not all of them do collaborations or participate on events by their own (like Ebiber, Ankimo, Kikunojou or Kokon).
That's not the case of other sidekicks like Chancho, because he has his own channel.
If you don't consider they need their own entry I'll merge Ichika info into the Osanai Mei article.
Is it ever established that the usage of external links (e.g. [example.com]) instead of the ref tag (e.g. <ref>Reference here.</ref>) is encouraged since every reference I see uses external links instead of the proper ref tag which will make it more organised.
I'm proposing this message to be posted on the wall of the users who create a minor vtuber / advertising / vanity article after their article is deleted for lack of notability. Feel free to suggest any change or anything you want to add to it. Have a Nice day!
"Welcome and thank you for your contributions to the Virtual YouTuber Wiki
Unfortunately, the entry you have created does not meet the necessary requirements for Notability and thus all the relevant information has been moved into the List of Minor VTubers. (For more information of Notability, please read the section Current notability standard on the same List entry). Any attempt of recreating the article will result on deletion.
Please take into account that if you are (or have a close connection with) the VTuber of the article that has been deleted, The Virtual YouTuber Wiki has a policy against blatant advertising, as this contravenes its goals and purposes.
Shall we change the name of the wiki from "Virtual YouTuber" to "VTuber"?
Asking this as many VTubers don't use YouTube but other platforms such as NicoNico.

I think we need the creation of a policy regarding debuting vtubers who are using the wiki as an advertisement tool. The purpose of a list of Minor VTubers will be defeated if they create their own articles without any moderation and despite not achieving the notability threshold required to earn an article in here. Also they are creating their vanity articles with disregard of the style that is desired on the entries.

Found a minor information, didn't know how to edit it in into the page
- Channel Member are called 'fam' an acronym for 'Family'. Despite Family being a plural, she use 'fams' as the plural form of 'Fam'
These models have a sort of similar art style. Was there a specific program used to make them, or just the same artist?
Who is the best virtual youtuber to watch to get into virtual youtubers?
Is there a policy for how to refer to guys doing VTuber activities with female avatars, with or without voice changers (so called "babiniku" or "incarnated")? Probably the most popular of these, Noja Loli has "Female (trap)" and "Female (male)" mentions on his page, but he is still categorized under Female category. Takehana Note (who uses a pitch changer) had no mention of him being a guy. I "fixed" his page, but now I'm wondering if the original was intended and I just ruined it.
Personally I find calling them traps feels off, since most aren't trying to hide it. They are also distinct from actual cross-dressing characters like Suzuya Aki or Hanabatake Chaika. On the other hand leaving it completely unmentioned feels unsatisfying and possibly misleading. Maybe add a page/category for incarnated/babiniku and link to it?
So I'd like to hear at least some confirmation from someone more experienced before I fix/ruin/add anything else to this wiki on this subject.
I suggest that the image galleries be included on the VTuber's main page instead of having them be separate. This would make it more convenient for wikia visitors to see what the VTuber looks like. Also, most VTubers seem to have very few to no images in their galleries anyways, so this change would definitely simplify the wikia and eliminate unnecessary pages.
If given approval, I can begin the transfer process and add more images. I plan to implement slideshow galleries to minimize the amount of space the galleries would take on the page.
Yomemi, Moemi and Moe are not part of DUO's company ENTUM. Eilene parted ways with them. So I'm suggesting to add the category "ICETEA" to the vtubers created by Eilene (with the exception of Mirai Akari). I asked Comdost if Eilene is still using the name ICETEA for her studio and he confirmed that.
What do you guys think about adding a page that lists the active vtuber Discords? - (also I'm new to this wiki, and I'd like to help out with whatever needs doing)
We need to write the editing policy, and create a standard to follow.
Here are my suggestions for time:
For the infobox use the Japanese standard: Year/Month/Day
For the articles use the international standard: Day-Month-Year
For the names, use the Japanese Standard:
(unless it's a composed name like with Dennou Shojo Siro , or it's a group name.
What else could we add?
I’m thinking of adding a new "standard" section to all articles of this format:
ABCTuber's videos are mostly voiced in Japanese (~90%), the remaining ~10% are voiced in English with a mild accent. In videos and twitter conversations she's been eager to speak in and to has shown good experience in English.
~70% of the videos are subtitled in English. Community Contributions are enabled and most videos are short clips of a few minutes, many with hardsubs, so they should be quicker to fansub and it is hoped that some generous fans will be able to do this in the future.
