TobDei Project

Oh man very happy that new pages related to Brazilian fandom are being made here on Fanlore, thank you for that. I edited it a little because it had a word in Portuguese (capas), which are nothing more than cover art for the stories -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 18:34, 18 April 2022 (UTC)

Aw, thank you for that! I am a little too invested in this ship, so I know everything that is going on everywhere. I wasn't sure how to translate capas so thank you for that! I haven't used Spirit a lot, but I felt like in Spirit fanfiction culture, cover art is as important as the fanfic itself and people put a lot of creativity into them --Alpha (talk) 18:43, 18 April 2022 (UTC)
It's not wrong, the people at Spirit are very passionate about the subject of covers. Before, the site had skin editing features that related to pages and editor groups within the site itself. It was recently removed to the displeasure of many. Several good editors/fanartists and programmers used the site's communities to share some xriac But it's not just Spirit that focuses on covers. People here in Brazil really like to give points to authors for their covers. Challenges and contests are made, in order to reward and choose covers for certain stories. In the scope of anime and especially in Spirit this is very high, almost becoming a war with flames. But never aggressively, would it be more like the Forever Knight faction Wars is getting me? Cover creators are called "Capistas". Some charge fees to create their cover, others do it for free.Many cover artists really fight each other over this, over who supports and who doesn't support such work being commissioned. It's a place where I don't get involved because from the colleagues I know, I've heard and seen a lot that scares me. Think of a strong passion taken to the extreme, it's the fervor of the Brazilian fanfic writer. Some treat this activity as a profession, some as a hobby, and some as a competition -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 21:50, 18 April 2022 (UTC)
I think I never got to see that feature. I think the commissioning bit is getting in murky waters if fanarts made by other people are being used. And yes since the pandemic started I have been more in contact with the Brazilian fandom as the ship I like is much more popular in BR fandom than Spanish or English for some reason and I noticed soon that there are a lot of very intense feelings going on, generally speaking. --Alpha (talk) 23:07, 18 April 2022 (UTC)
It's Brazil is very fascinated in Naruto, and the slash ships of the fandom is very big. I have no idea what country you are my friend Alpha, but know that the waters of fandom are turbulent, but with the right mastery easy to navigate. Yes, many want to charge for covers made with resources that cannot be commissioned and still dare to criticize those who point this out. I have some publisher friends who charge nothing and some who do. But let's not talk about it, I'm glad you're joining the Brazilian fandom. I speak a little Spanish and no English (thank you online translators), so I also get involved in different fandoms of these three languages. Maybe if you need support with the idiom difference, you can call me without hesitation -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 23:30, 18 April 2022 (UTC)
Oh thank you very much with the offer and thank you for adding information! I offer you help with Spanish if you need it anytime too :D --Alpha (talk) 00:14, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

Alpha, I've got some handwriting samples. I'd like to send them to you. If you want, you can email me via my talk page. --MPH (talk) 20:52, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

Note about tumblr links on Daily Dracula

Hi, I really appreciate all of the links you've been adding to Dracula Daily! Awesome work. I just wanted to point out that a lot of the tumblr links you've been adding have been formatted to direct people to a login wall -- this isn't your fault, Tumblr changed how it handles the "copy link" button a few weeks ago and it's been very annoying for all of us! So far I've just been fixing it by hand (you just need to change "" to "") but if I figure out a more convenient way of getting the public link, I'll try to remember to add that here. -- Quaelegit (talk) 06:16, 3 August 2022 (UTC)

Hey! I was not aware of that, thank you for letting me know, I will test the Tumblr links on an unlogged browser before adding them from now on. --Alpha (talk) 16:43, 3 August 2022 (UTC)
Further Updates October 2022: Tumblr is continuing to mess w/ its URL structure and general feature behaviors (one announcement, and there's been other changes to that I don't have a handy link for)-- but at least this week the "share" button is working again (and produces URLS in the format This links you to a mobile-formatted view of the post, which I personally dislike, but you can at least access it w/o being logged in to tumblr, so there's no need to hand-edit tumblr URLs on Fanlore anymore. -- Quaelegit (talk) 23:04, 10 October 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for letting me know! I've seen Tumblr has been tweaking stuff often lately, but didn't notice this one. Let's hope they can be saved correctly in the wayback machine again! Alpha (talk) 23:24, 10 October 2022 (UTC)
