  • Hey, just so you know, I've already given Mandy my permission to update the wordmark/theme and background of the wiki, just waiting on your word! Also, for the main page, do you think we should perhaps make the spoiler warning a bit more prominent to people new to the wiki? OR is it pretty self-explanatory? Also, the countdowns for the episodes.. are those going to be there 24/7 until all the episodes have aired? I just don't think they're the prettiest countdowns. Maybe we could design a better template for them :) I'll work on a prototype

    • Yep - I'm definitely behind it! Hopefully that & the URL will be updated for tonight! For the warning, how were you thinking of making it more noticeable? Moving position? Adding an outline? I'd probably agree to moving it somewhere else as, for logged-out users, an ad covers the right column, pushing down the text so I agree on that. The countdowns will be there 24/7 (and will probably be used again next year and for TBoD3) and they definitely need a touch-up!

      Also, happy watching for tonight! I hope you enjoy it :)

    • And have you seen Special:Analytics!!!!!! 8 000 to 54 000.....wow!

        Loading editor
    • Oh wow that's a huge jump! And I'm so excited to watch tonight! I've been watching trailers and cast interviews all day hoping to make the time go faster T^T

      For the warning I'm thinking a notice template might work (maybe put it above the countdowns), but IDK how to make the countdowns look prettier at this time

  • Hi there! How are you? I'm part of the FANDOM staff, and in preparation for the upcoming HDM series, I was wondering if you would mind if I made a few minor main page updates? Just adding a video section, maybe some new headers, a social media section, or anything else you'd have in mind!

    Let me know what you think or if you prefer it as is! Thanks!

    • Thanks for the quick reply!

      1. It might be for the best seeing as quite a few of those wikis are small and inactive as well as a few not having the footer on them at all. It might be better to replace it with another section...
      2. Oops! I didn't explain properly although thanks for reminding me of that - I'd forgotten! I meant the actual file page (File:Everything you need to know about His Dark Materials - BBC, for example) - can we revert it back to a smaller description with less links?
      3. For this, I think I probably should update the mobile main page. But here, when you click 'view more' and scroll down, it doesn't look very neat - is there any way to hide some of those templates/clean them up?

      Thanks!

    • Hi!

      1. No problem, just deleted - if another section comes to mind let me know!
      2. Ahh I see now- I just fixed the description.
      3. The view more section pulls automatically from the main page slider- so you could either change the slider, or perhaps there is another way to edit the mobile main page? I can't see the editing section to check it out unfortunately because I don't have the admin rights!

  • Do you agree it's about time we get rid of the LBS Spoiler template?

    • Also, I replied to your idea on the Admin discussions page. I'm actually going to add a topic there shortly so please keep an eye out for that :)

        Loading editor
    • Yes, definitely. I'll start that shortly! Thanks - I'll take a look at that now! I assume the new topic has something to do with meetings between users to discuss the wiki xD - although we all edit around the clock so it might be a bit tricky to implement although I think it's definitely something we should try!

    • Done! Something I've been meaning to tell you for a while now: FANDOM actually put HDM in a spotlight on their front page a few months ago under Television (which we must have missed). They had actually used this image from the film so I alerted them a month or so ago to change it (and suggested the image of Iorek in his armour). However, staff didn't listen and chose that (reasonable) image of Lee which is what there is now - but at least we're on the home page!

      I've also alerted them about changing the image used on the app (currently it's Dakota) although this hasn't been updated yet.

    • I've been looking over our protection policy recently and I think there are a few issues with it. Firstly, the sky blue lock should completely go - it's meant to go on pages that can't be created. However, if the page hasn't been created, there's no way we can put it on the page! The move protected might also want to go because we're unlikely to use it (there are a few pages that are, quite rightly, move protected). It should be pretty obvious we've stopped the page from being moved and is something most readers won't be interested in.

  • Hi NightSpeakers, I'd like to extend an invitation to become an admin on the wiki (I have extended the same invitation to LimeInABush). I've found myself caught up in work lately and I'm realizing that my work around the wiki has definitely been slacking. I am definitely going to need help in the next few months with everything that will be happening regarding His Dark Materials (tv and book releases). Please don't feel pressured. Only accept this invitation if you have the time to dedicate to the wiki and if it's something that interests you :) And feel free to ask any/all the questions you want before giving me an answer.

  • Hi NightSpeakers! I've been absent for a little while as I focused a bit on a work project, but I'm back! If you could be so kind as to use your bot to speed up the process of adding the Template:Witches navbox to the respective pages, I would appreciate it!

  • Hey Nightspeakers, I saw you created a bunch of pages related to the File:List of kidnapped children.png. I'm just curious why you added them to the English individuals category because none of them are confirmed to have come from England. Also, how are you sure that they underwent intercision and weren't just being held at Bolvangar for the time being? Also, the transcribed image template is only meant to be used if the title of the article is unclear - the image of the list is clear enough to not need that header template.

    • Hi,

      The English individuals category was added because I thought the list was of those taken from Brytain. I assumed they were some of the people in that room when they were told to write letters....I'll remove that. As for being held at Bolvangar, I thought I but that :P, will fix. Sorry for the misunderstanding on the image template (I thought it was generally for images whose title was derived from an image - my mistake.

      My bot has just (or is just finishing) the edits. Thanks for telling me! That podcast sounds interesting........though probably impossible to do.

      Happy editing.

  • Hey, I don't think that thevore.com is a reliable source as far as a release date goes. I think if there were an actual release date, it would be on more prominent websites, so I feel like that information should be taken off of our wiki for now (?) until a bigger source confirms this information? Or at least, mention in the wiki article itself that "According to thevore.com, an online culture magazine, the first episode will supposedly air on December 31st". Just to be on the safe side...

  • Hi,

    I would like to apologise for this comment I made on the Notes and references forum: "To me they seem like useless changes to get up an edit count." I was looking back through some forums and saw this comment. Frankly it was a rude comment to make and I regret making it. It was not intended as a personal attack but instead the result of other things happening in my life outside the wiki. Nevertheless, that is not an excuse and I am deeply sorry for what I said. Thanks again for making so many great edits and changes to the wiki! -LimeInABush

    • Wow, thank you. Just to save you worrying - the comment didn't affect me and I completely forgive you for it :). One of the best characteristics for a great admin of a large community is to admit to their mistakes - and hopefully that's the figure you'll become! Thanks once again, I understand, and hope everything's all right in real life. :-)
