  • What do you think about customizing/creating specialized badges.

    I rather like the idea of "You can set up more than one category track, so try choosing two categories that would help users show off their specialty! Ignite a rivalry between the users who edit Vampires pages and the users who edit Werewolves pages,..."

    I wish TVD had this because of there main two species

      Loading editor
    • Sure, why not, sounds cool. I know on the TVD wiki, I typically edit werewolf related pages, so badges like that sound like a good idea.

        Loading editor
    • Ok sure. I'll get started on that over the weekend. I'll try to get some decent screenshots of the promo trailer to use too.

      Other question. The Character cells, do you think they are too small, I used 100x100px. Maybe they should be a bit bigger for the homepage?

        Loading editor
    • The character cells look great, but they do appear to be a little small.

        Loading editor
    • I bumped up the size and reordered on the main page.

        Loading editor
    • looks good

        Loading editor
    • So I've got three tracks done. Werewolves, Witches, and Vampires. (each with customized badge names --let me know what you think and/or change wherever) Do you want badge tracks for each species, i.e. Weretiger, Ghost, Psychic and Angel as well or just the well known species?

        Loading editor
    • Nice! Those are awesome. I think each creature should have its own track. I'd imagine that  it might be difficult for a species like the weretiger since we don't know anything about them yet. So you don't have to do all of them if it becomes a problem like that, hold off on it if necessary.

        Loading editor
    • So Ghost and Angel... What about Psychic?

      (I also did one for Help Needed)

        Loading editor
    • I think a track can be done for psychics, they can see Ghost, summon them, get possessed by them, etc.

      Good idea with the help needed category

        Loading editor
    • Done and thanks. Tweak any badge names as you see fit. I tried to keep them species related.

    • For the Season one page, within the episodes, do you want to include any of the production information i.e. exec. producer, written, directed, etc., by? If so we also need individual pages..

      1x04 Director: David Solomon, Camera: Phil Pfieffer (11-14-16)

      1x05 Director: Milan Cheylov, Camera: Mike Spragg

      1x06 Director: Nick Gomez, Camera: Mike Spragg (12-6-16)

      Executive Producers listed on the table reads that the cast has released have Monica Owusu-Breen and David Janollari listed, just fyi

        Loading editor
    • What do you mean by within the episodes? Are you talking about on the episode template? And individual pages for what?

        Loading editor
    • The Episode chart on the season one page. There isn't any current spots for it and I was wondering if there should be. (Season_One#Episodes)

      If we included this information would we need individual pages for the Directors, i.e. David Solomon, Nick Gomez, etc.,

        Loading editor
    • Sure. Feel free to include it if you'd like.

      As for individual pages, I think we should create those for the important crew members, like directors, writers and producers who have worked on more than one episode. Camera men and minor crew members, if necessary, we can just link them to IMDb like we would do with minor characters.

    • If you have the time, can you tag those images I just upload, if not that is fine and I'll tag them later today/tonight. I'm about to be out for a while.

      Also if you want make a category for the wrap party images. Something like Category:Images for Season One Wrap Party

      Thanks in advance.

    • Thanks for doing that. I'll be out for another couple hours and just didn't have the time to do it then or now so I appreciate that. 

      They keep saying and tagging coming soon, so hopefully we will get something soon or maybe another trailer.

    • Thoughts about this?

        Loading editor
    • So given that original dateline article and that Jason was at the NBCU Summer cast panel along with David and Monica, can we take that as a confirmation as he's a regular? (instead of recurring).

        Loading editor
    • Yul was there too. It's kind of confusing. Either they're major recurring or they've both been bumped up to series regular, and no one has said anything. I think we should just go by his latest released status. It's not really unheard of for major recurring cast members to attend panels. JR Bourne (Argent) and Cody Christian (Theo) did it with TW.

        Loading editor
    • Alright. Thanks for the info. I'm just glad things seem to be picking up again though the wait (though now with a date) is still like 4 months off.

        Loading editor
    • Np. Now that the network has confirmed a date, I've been seeing a little more buzz. Cant wait for them to really start promoting. That wait is still a kick in the ass though.

        Loading editor
    • I hope that we get character promos eventually and maybe another trailer before July. They need to keep the buzz going.

      This show is going to be the best summer show this year!

        Loading editor
    • I'm really looking forward to the design of the character promotional images. I'm more hype for this summer show than I am for TW, and that doesn't happen too often. So, I hope this show's a hit. Gotta say, I'm really happy it's not on the CW.

        Loading editor
    • NBC is a pretty good network imo, that is if they actually give a show a chance, they are notorious for canceling shows after their premiere season though I think MTX will be great and TVD/TO/Grimmm/EC fans will probably flock to it given that they've ended.

        Loading editor
    • Hopefully, the ratings are good. We haven't even seen the show, but I'm gonna be pissed if they don't get a 2nd season. I've never been this hype for a show I haven't even seen yet. Between the fans of the books, and the supernatural shows that you mentioned, I could see this going well.

        Loading editor
    • Noticed that we didn't have an actual category for the screencaps, so I made one. Just letting you know, so that you'd know to add it in the future.

        Loading editor
    • Thanks for taking care of that. (I would have tagged all of those so I appreciate that.)

      I still wanna tag each episode for images along with the season one tag that way if you're searching for a specific scene for a specific episode it can be quickly found so once the official synopses come out then I can create those for images.

        Loading editor
    • Sounds like a good idea. That should make it a lot easier to find images. Speaking of which, what's your take on separate gallery pages (Olivia Charity/Gallery, Joe Strong/Gallery, etc)? I don't like them. I find them to be unnecessary. Thoughts?

        Loading editor
    • I'd only suggest the subpages if the parent page has too much info/code on it.. i.e. if we went for 8 season with 22eps each, then galleries for mains may need to be separated out (slows down page loading etc.) For now on their pages is fine because it is easily found and all the content for that character is together on one page.

        Loading editor
    • Alright. Just wondering where you were at one that. We can only hope for that many seasons. This is a problem I wouldn't mind having in the future

        Loading editor
    • Right!? Lol I wouldn't even consider it a "problem". I hope we at least run for 5/6 seasons like Grimm (whatever number they are up too)

        Loading editor
    • Grimm was lucky. Hopefully, we're just as lucky cause I here these type of shows don't really do well on NBC. Fingers crossed.

        Loading editor
    • Definitely. I hope the ratings are a smash hit and we get an early renewal/expanded season for next spring. Mighty big hopes!! XD

        Loading editor
    • Big hopes indeed. Nothing would make me happier than an earlier renewal/expanded season.

    • So the tabs on the images one season one page.

      I've combined the 'Cons' into conventions and for each new con use the image name.jpg|Wonder Con etc... and each following image will be for that con.

      Since there were to many (long title) tabs. Unless you want to have a separate gallery for cons?

        Loading editor
    • Alright. Sounds good to me.

        Loading editor
    • As it is now?


      Or we could have a separate gallery named conventions, tabbed to include each con.

    • Since NBC has a habit (both trailers) of removing the trailers and the main page should have a trailer for the users that visit to work, what do you think about his video that combines both the first and second trailer?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NH2MvzWbYA&index=3&list=PLQZuobTS-I6PKFrSClOt9JubNNc5Q1DnB

      The one that is separated out, that I found is only 720p.

    • Wtf? I hadnt even noticed that they took it down. But that's exactly why I downloaded that last trailer from YT as soon as they released it. 

      Either video is good. As long as there's a trailer on the main page. But the one that combines both videos is probably best

        Loading editor
    • Yup. I downloaded for cap, but it's ridiculous they they removed it. Seems like poor advertising.

      I'm on mobile so I can add it later, or you can restore it from the deletion log. I had uploaded it then thought well they are combine so it may not be a good video.

        Loading editor
    • I wonder what they're doing. I hope they don't plan on pushing it back even further.

      It's up on the main page now. Hopefully they add that trailer back.

        Loading editor
    • I hope not. Seems like it's already on a good time slot.

      Thanks. I tried restoring it via mobile but once I did it said content was not found. Idk what was going one. I'll be briefly back on a computer for a bit then back to mobile.

    • Will you be making a page for Breeda Wool since she's a guest?

      Co-Stars, we can just link to Imdb or something.

      Also, shall I go ahead and create a page "Mr. Livingston" or "Sheriff Livingston"?

        Loading editor
    • Yep. Hopefully, tonight I can get Breeda's page up. 

      That's the plan. All Co-stars will be linked through that IMDb template.

      Sheriff Livingston would be best. If someone comes searching for this character, I guarantee you the first word will be Sheriff. Speaking of which, that had to be the biggest shocker of the episode. Why was he credited as a main XD

        Loading editor
    • Okay cool.

      Yeah I'm not sure. Kinda makes since. I read that the Murder plot will kinda get placed on the back burner throughout the episodes and it will focus on the Demons as the main plot, so I guess the Sheriff will featured a bit.

      I did just double check that Jos Smith (voice of Mr. Snuggly) is actually not credited. Which is weird. I guess voice work doesn't get credited? Wonder why that is..

      Is that also the reasoning behind the Rachel/Harold redirect verses just linking to the season one minor page?

        Loading editor
    • Looking forward to the introductions of demons. They look much cooler than I expected

      Voice-overs are generally credited, so yeah that's strange.

      Yes. Its for searching purposes. Everyone's not going to know that we have a minor characters page. It's more convenient for visitors to be able to search the name and find it.

        Loading editor
    • I'm going to guess, that we'll see them around episode 3 or possible 4 --"ancient supernatural who seduces and feeds on men" --calling it as a succubus. XD and probably a demon, or a sub species.

      Yeah Idk.

      I see. Makes sense.

        Loading editor
    • Succubus was the first thing that came to mind. I could see Succubus being considered as like a class of demon.

    • Hmm tough choice for ep three image.

      Lemuel, Unchained 103-14-Lemuel.jpg (Lemuel looks Unchained)

      Thoughts?

        Loading editor
    • Lemuel, Unchained 103-14-Lemuel.jpg seems like the best option since this ep is pretty much dedicated to him.

        Loading editor
    • I was leaning towards that or the nest. Interesting promos XD

        Loading editor
    • Very interesting. Lemuel looks extra badass in that one image. I'm hype for this ep but of course not as hype for ep 2. I've been waiting for this above all else.

    • Lol Lemuel is growing on me (for a vampire that is). I think I'll like ep three XD.

      Never thought I'd say this, but can Monday hurry up and get here. Like this show makes Monday worth it!

        Loading editor
    • Same here. I generally dont care for vamps, and even through all the promotion, I didn't really care for Lemuel, but that one episode has me liking him.

      I don't think I've ever said in my life that Monday needs to hurry up, but thats exactly how I'm feeling. Never connected to a show as quickly as I have this one. Apparently, we arent the only ones. A ton of tweets about people being hooked.

    • I don't think the a section on the minor characters page is need for a nameless officer with no name or lines. Minor character pages are typically for characters of relevance to the story but don't have enough info for a page. The officer was pretty irrelevant imo.

        Loading editor
    • He had a line something like hey we found something... but if you want to remove it, be my guest. Idk why he was even credited to begin with when he wasn't featured in the investigation like Tina and Livingston.

        Loading editor
    • I agree. He was more like an extra, if anything. They credit the nameless officer but not the voice-over cat. Crazy!

        Loading editor
    • I know. I don't get it either.

      But makes sense. SOL bikers are also nameless, but their scene was significant. Rachel and Harold set up Manfred's introduction and his abilities so by comparison, they are "significant" (for a lack of a better word) minor characters.

      Good to know then. :)

      Edit: I did tweak the opening statement though to "The characters below are listed in order of appearance for your convenience." Alphabetical seems weird me. I.e. spoil content say if an ep8 character is before ep1 or something, idk if it matters but, Imo, order of appearance, per episode, seems logical as you'd just keep adding to the list.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah. Their status is minor but the role that they play can often quite significant.

      I agree. Order of appearance is probably best.

        Loading editor
    • What do you think of modifying the assassin category to include bounty hunters? Since the most recent synopsis credits Bowie as one. I mean for now, just one character in a category seems like a waste... I'm debating a succubus category too because we will probably not have another one of those...

      We could have a generic "Supernatural" category to cover those that are not the core species...?

        Loading editor
    • Sounds like a good idea. No point in having two separate categories for assassins and bounty hunters. They're pretty much the same for the most part. Since the odds of another Succubus being introduced are low, I doubt we need a category.

      I was thinking a "Supernaturals" category would be more accurate since titles of categories are usually plural and Chuy referred to them as "Supernaturals" when asking about the veil

        Loading editor
    • Okay sounds good.

      ^You want to revise the "Assassins" category and I'll create the "Supernaturals" one?

        Loading editor
    • Yeah

        Loading editor
    • For main cast, I thought if they were absent from the episode we were going with "credit only"... versus removing them altogether? I ask because Sheriff Livingston wasn't "credited" in Lemuel, Unchained, but is listed as "credit only".

      Just let me know to clear things up for future episodes.

        Loading editor
    • I didn't realize he was listed as credited on Lemuel, Unchained. That should be removed as well. "credit only" is for characters that dont appear but were credited. The Rev and Sheriff weren't credited nor did they appear. That's why I removed them.

        Loading editor
    • I was initially going to do that but it being late last night, I opted to follow episode 3. Good to know.

      Btw, I've linked two guest cast/characters on the MTX page, I'll get around to creating them later.

      I have the episode screencapped too, I haven't renamed the images though, and with other stuff, I wont be able to post them until probably tomorrow or so, just wanted to give you a heads up.

    • Is there enough information to create a page for Ross? Peter makes sense bc we'll be seeing more of him, and that was something I had been meaning to get to as well. But I don't see there being much with Ross.

      No rush with the screencaps.

        Loading editor
    • He's guest cast/character and I think there's enough information to make it work. Olivia let him live and he was hired by her father, so there's always a possibility that he could come back.

    • Ok. Nevermind. I got the characters confused. I was thinking of Ted. The douche with the red Caddi that Gina killed at the beginning. You're right. Ross can work

        Loading editor
    • Lol okay. Yeah I figured that Guest Stars/Characters can receive their own pages and co-stars are minor, unless they become recurring or something.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah. That's generally how it works. There are of course exceptions but we'll deal with those as they present themselves.

        Loading editor
    • Hey, how come my images for Patsy and Ted were replaced? Was there something wrong with them? I don't really see much of a difference in between images. Just asking bc I wanna avoid any mistakes in the future.

        Loading editor
    • They way I process the image in photoshop for profile images retains a high quality while keeping the image at 400x500 px and the resolution at 300dpi.

      So for example when I cap at 1920x1080, I'll crop at 800x1000, resize the image by 50% and change dpi to 300 so it will still be high quality.

      The sizes seemed a bit wonky to me so I fixed them.

    • Thanks. Yeah I noticed Original Authority imported it to TVD and I rather like it. After a bit of searching I found on Dev Wiki that it can be moved, so I was just waiting on the approval.

      It was further down on the feed, prior to the custom js, though above insights looks better and it's more noticeable (more of an attempt to integrate discussions with wiki.)

        Loading editor
    • Makes total sense to integrate discussions with wiki. FANDOM Staff is pushing this so hard. I was 100% against this replacing forums at first. I still am, just not 100%. Its made improvements.

        Loading editor
    • It's gotten better. I never really got into forums. I think when I original came to TVD wiki, it was around and I didn't really care about them, and then they started to phase it out so I didn't see the point in it.

      Also, contemplating this... not sure if you saw it or not. I know we have the notable section, which is fine, but I feel like a comprehensive list or something should be detailed? I mean some are uncredited but I thought at least, they could get a mention or an image or something. I don't think a table like the Minor Characters is necessary and though maybe a separate gallery would be sufficient. What are your thoughts?

        Loading editor
    • There's no source editor in Discussion and you can't highlight threads. Those are my biggest problems, especially not being able to highlight threads. That is very important when you have a community. I see You an OA struggling to get certain info out bc everyone isn't seeing it. This is literally the perfect example of why highlighted threads are necessary. Every user on the wiki automatically gets the message, which is why I think it was premature for the TVD wiki to disable forums.

      No. I didn't see it. Seems a bit redundant since we already have the 'notable *insert species name here*' section imo. Labeling the images is fine, but it seems strange to section them off.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah in discussions, things tend to get buried by random, sometimes pointless post. I do like the highlight feature and I hope that they bring that back eventually in discussions. Not having the source editor is highly frustrating. Can't link anything properly. Smh

      So remove it entirely (as it as before), or maybe just list all *insert species instead of the notable section? It doesn't really matter to me, I just though it would highlight the other ghosts that may not have really any role (especially if they aren't credited as minors). I can change it back if you'd rather though.

        Loading editor
    • Should they fix those two problems, as they are the biggest ones IMO, I'd be on board with Discussions. Until then, Discussions isn't ready to replace forums.

      I don't really have a preference of. It doesn't matter to me. Choose whichever way you believe works best. I'm cool with either way

When creating a new wiki, forums are automatically disabled and discussions are enabled. You'd think that they'd pick up the pace with adding what's missing. Then maybe more users, such as myself, would be more inclined to transition over to Discussions. Seems so simple.

    • I really like the notifications feature. Other than that, a few more improvements and integration is still needed. It still seems to separate from the main wiki (though I do like the Discussions feed rail; seems more inclusive). With TVD, there's a clear separation between discussions users and wiki users, some never going to the other and then theres the few that actually do both. I guess it will just take time, but like you said seems simple so I don't understand the sluggish activity around it.

    • I've noticed that complaint from a lot of users. They all feel like Discussions is its own thing. They need to change the appearance. It needs to greatly resemble the wiki its apart of, and having that discussions rail automatically set to all wikis would help as well. From my experience, its like that many wikis, some wiki users have never even crossed paths with discussions users bc neither ventures far from their section.

    • That's the trend that I've noticed with user creation on TVD. A lot just create new accounts for post and comment on discussions, though frankly half of the questions asked, that are duplicates or similar, could easily be answered if the wiki was checked prior to asking. lol But yeah, the users there hardly ever come to the main namespace. I think if they incorporate the background and the wiki feed into discussions then the look and feel may be more inclusive or if they have a discussions recent actively page/log.

    • Excellent point. That's further proof that the discussions feels disconnected from the wiki. The users don't even bother to look up the info that they're inquiring about. Some of them don't even know how to use wiki.

    • Right! Smh I can't deal with that. It's truly frustrating some times.

      Edit: btw I'll get around to images after tonight's episode.. Do them all in one go round, so they will likely be posted around Friday night or sometime over the weekend. :)

    • For consistency, Last Temptation of Midnight - "of" is lowercase, yet for Riders On The Storm -- "On The" are uppercase.

      I already created the category for the screencaps of 1x09 but I didn't want to tag them all if it needed to be changed.

      The original link for episode names, which I guess slipped attention, has "on the" as lowercase. Should we change it to "Riders on the Storm"? If so we can leave the redirect and work towards deleted the redirects as we go throughout the pages, etc.

    • This script cover reads "On The" as upppercase, so we'll go with that.

    • Alright. Wanted to double check before I tagged 100+ images. :) I'll probably get to them throughout/later today.
