A staff member has asked us a very important question that all current editors should be weighing in on, as it may change the future of what content we will have on this wikia. If you could visit the below thread and give us your opinion, it would be very much appreciated. There needs to be enough community opinion for anything to change. You've been editing here for a while now, so your feedback would be really appreciated.
there is already another harvest moon wiki on fandom that is pretty much abandoned and shold be up for adoption. I say if natsume wants something official they can most likely have that one to build up as they wish, and I think we shold keep this one as is.
Personally I’m against splitting things, unless we're splitting the natsume-made games from all the Bokujō Monogatari games - even the ones that were licensed the under the Harvest moon name in the past, so there's less confusion for casual fans
Hilarious that I was literally JUST downloading a photo of Edmond after seeing it on CeeCee's tumblr and I see that you already started the page. I don't know why I find that so funny. My recent activity hadn't updated so I was totally unaware. Silly.
Hi Clover, I'm responding to the chat we had about Harvest Moon vs Story of Seasons a little while on my message wall. I figured I'd post it here, so you could more easily see it. I've changed the header on the main page to say that we cover Story of Seasons now. I've also made up a description (which I think is somewhat accurate) to include on the home page explaining the differences. I thought I'd run it past you though, since you explained it to me and understand a bit better than I do. Let me know how this sounds before I publish it:
Natsume, for years, had been localizing the Bokujō Monogatari series (Harvest Moon) and publishing the games that we all know and love! However, recently, Natsume's rights to localize these games expired. Natsume kept the trademark on the name of "Harvest Moon," and started to make new games in the series that were different from what the original publisher (Marvelous) had done. These games include Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories, and the upcoming Harvest Moon: Skytree Village.
Because Marvelous was no longer allowed to utilize the name of "Harvest Moon," they changed their series name to Story of Seasons for their upcoming games. These workings continue on with the traditional older "Harvest Moon" styles, and is the true continuation of the Bokujō Monogatari series.
Skytree Village is already out so it's not rely upcoming. Maybe so you wont have to update the information with every new harvest moon game you can instead link to this category page to make things easier in the long run
the second paragraph is a little hard to follow and I got friend to help me double check it and we reworked it a lil bit:
Because Marvelous was no longer allowed to utilize the name of "Harvest Moon," the current and future games of the Bokujō Monogatari series was changed to the new title "Story of Seasons" outside of Japan and is the true continuation of the Harvest Moon series.
Just wanted to ask why you took the information out for the children. It's much easier and simpler laid out on the pages than it is on the child page. I thought it looked fine as is and was thinking of reverting the change, but you changed every page it looks like.
It just looks sort of empty and out of place with no information. I can always use a main directory to the bigger "Your Children" article if you want. I've done this on Owen's page as an example if you wanted to see. I thought that would be an agreeable middle ground if that's okay with you.
I also want to point out that if you change the wording from colour to color in the character box, the information wont come up because thts not whats in the template. I just thought I should let you know in case it causes confusion. In case you change it on a page where you have that information and it dissappears on you.
