Ursus, regarding the cuts I ascribed to "probably on a ship" which you changed to "probably in Tokyo-3", see here. All three seem to belong to the same scene, Shinji is hanging onto a railing, and beyond that railing is ocean. The "buildings" also look rather weird even by Tokyo-3 standards. Plus the "vast expanse of sky" plus "breeze" combination. Rollback, bitte? --Reichu 12:30, 28 March 2009 (PDT)

Done. --UrsusArctos 20:25, 28 March 2009 (PDT)

Well, is it time we got around to changing this article to reflect the grand troll job? --UrsusArctos 20:02, 27 June 2009 (PDT)

Plot Summary

That summary was cut and pasted from Soth's blog, with permission, in order to get this article started.Cyber XIII 18:38, 12 July 2009 (PDT)

Thanks. We probably have to credit Soth somewhere, just so people know. I'll get to reformatting the text to fit with the wiki conventions later. --UrsusArctos 18:18, 12 July 2009 (PDT)

You're welcome. Yeah, we should credit him. Should we remove the trailer bits?Cyber XIII 18:38, 12 July 2009 (PDT)

I guess so. There's no great purpose in keeping them any longer. Add a link to Soth's blog to the "External Links" section, I'll handle the appropriate accreditation.--UrsusArctos 08:31, 13 July 2009 (PDT)
Going through the review I notice that Soth and Ornette digress on a few points (Accents, etc.) It also looks like cleaning up Soth's review won't be as easy as it looked at first glance. I'd like a couple of other opinions before proceeding on this page. --UrsusArctos 08:36, 13 July 2009 (PDT)
How much of the trailers do I need to remove? (-- Preceding unsigned comment by Cyber XIII)
Write a small summary for each of the trailers, and then delete the scene-by-scene description.--UrsusArctos 18:01, 14 July 2009 (PDT)
Well, the 2.0 summary is in progress right now. My apologies to Soth, but it would be less of a hassle to write a new summary than to edit his review. I'll deal with other issues on this page soon enough. --UrsusArctos 05:53, 20 July 2009 (PDT)

Regarding the current summary (I remember writing it up and some other folks tweaking it accordingly), I know it has the "too detailed" tag, but I'm honestly stumped on what should be axed and what should stay; since mostly everything mentioned is important in some manner... (There's such a huge difference between a movie and an episode of a series.) Thoughts, please? --Sailor Star Dust 00:10, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

I don't understand why 'too detailed' is even in this wiki's vocabulary. This isn't Wikipedia (thank goodness), and even from the perspective of readability, this wiki is aimed at fans and those interested in in depth coverage - if they weren't, that reader would be at Wikipedia or somewhere else. --Gwern 01:16, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Trailer Summaries

Should the trailers for 2.0 get their own page, be nuked from orbit, or just be one-paragraph/sentence summaries for each trailer? Not really sure what to do with those, but they obviously need work. --Sailor Star Dust 01:46, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Maybe just briefly summarizing the highlights of each ("fans got their first glimpse of....") would suffice. I mean, it doesn't hurt to have their release dates and a really quick bit of info here for posterity's sake, but obviously 99% of that crap can go. :3 --Reichu 01:52, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Okay, done. ^_^ (Hope it looks good according to what you'd like to see.) Now, I'm gradually working on fixing the 2.22 film summary accordingly... >_> --Sailor Star Dust 15:19, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

SSD wrote in History: "Was working on the trailer summaries but somebody else started working on them. Argh argh argh." I was actually just revising other shit on the page -- probably a bad idea, considering you were studiously at work! When that happens, you know how to integrate your changes with the "ninja edits", right? --Reichu 17:25, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Not really sure, but I'm assuming it involves some sort of copy/pasting. --Sailor Star Dust 18:13, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, it does. ^_^; Basically, bring up the ninja-edits (should automatically appear when you try to save yours), and copy/paste them into your updated version (or vice versa, depending on what's easier). I hope you didn't lose any work. :((( --Reichu 18:31, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
I don't believe I did, I was a little worried maybe you lost some of yours. ^^; But thanks a lot! --Sailor Star Dust 18:48, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Spoiler Policy

Is there anything in here that is still technically a spoiler? 2.22's been out on DVD and Blu-ray for quite a while, and finished airing in American theaters back in 2011. Can we nuke the spoiler banner on this thing? --Nuclear Lunchbox (talk) 18:10, 7 April 2013 (PDT)
