Previously, my observations give me the conclusion that if something (written by a staff) has once been on the books hub "From the Community" section and is replaced by newer blog post, it will later be archive What's Hot; I mean, I'm not exactly sure if my conclusion is right cuz I did not click on every single blog on What's Hot, but the majority does seem to be written by staff, and I know not all the stuff that used to be on "From the Community" are on there. So my question is... Is it okay to put the Inkheart menu on What's Hot, since it's written by you and it is now no longer on "From the Community"? I know it may be a think-skined request, but I really wanted to promote the trilogy in every way I can think of. (and yes, I am aware that the blog is on the What's Hot at the Lifestyle Hub, but because it's a trilogy with main characters being die-hard book-lovers, I kind of think the Books Hub is even more suitable)
The Y.A. Society Reads Archive used to show the next three "books of the month"; is there a reason that it's only showing one now? Is it possible to go back to previewing three?
1. Yes unfortunately we stopped archiving the From the Community section. It used to be on this page- feel free to update that page if you like! The What's Hot is supposed to be only for Wikia Marketing projects :)
Thank you for making those updates! However, although you've said feel free to update From the Community, the page currently is locked from regular users =/ And if it's more of a archival page now, is it possibly better to rename it as such? (Not exactly sure!)
Other book related wiki stuff. A fellow editor is in the process of adopting the Septimus Heap Wiki and we are currently doing our best to revive the said wiki; is it possible for you to help change the wiki to the book category (when it comes to WAM), like how you helped out the Cornelia Funke Wiki and Peter Pan Wiki? (The part where a orange "BOOKS" label would appear next to the Wikia logo) Thanks!!
Also, not sure if you can be the go-to person for this situation, but since the direction of the wiki now clearly includes covering the spin-off series (which takes place in the same universe and 7 years later of the events from the main series; characters from the main series are also featured), can you help redirecting the currently unused url to the Septimus Heap Wiki?
Since the spin-off heavily referenced the main series (the book covers even have the big label "The World of Septimus Heap") and wouldn't really make sense without the concepts and terms established from the previous books, we hope that should people want to focus on editing material from the spin-off, they'd come to the already established wiki and work on it there instead. All in all, we just hope the wiki can be a concentrated place for fans of the same thing to gather around! Hope this can be considered! =D
Glad you found someone to help out! Let me know if it comes up again :)
For now-- we have the design request page technically for wikis with a minimum amount of pages. Sadly I don't think I have time to do a design request wiki for smaller wikis myself, BUT I would love to see a Community member get involved with that :) I will ask around!
I would like to ask you something about a ban I recieved on a wiki.
Okay, so yesterday I was on my IPAD trying to edit a page (Game Over, Charles) because I watched the promo, and one of the cast members wasn't in the cast section so I added it. I don't have a laptop at the moment, so I can't edit on the classic editor on my IPAD 2 since it doesn't have that option. I decided to use the Visual Editor, and I admit it was taking me ages to just add this one cast member, but I eventually finished and saved it. I checked if what I edited was there and I went off wikia. This was yesterday.
Today, I came on to find I had recieved a one week ban for deleting content/pictures. I was surprised since I had NO IDEA, and I mean that and I will swear it to my grave that I had no idea, that I had deleted some content. I do take responsibility if it did happen but it was a mistake. I was never asked by an admin about what had happened and I have never recieved a warning on this wiki. (I used to be a chat moderator but I took a break from Wikia due to exams, but I haven't been on much recently either due to an accident in my family). I immidietly messaged Selena (Fearless Diva) on her wiki, I was upset and mad since I had no idea what I had done. I should of recieved a warning and a chance to explain myself, not a one week ban where I miss dicussing the finale with my PLL wikia friends. If I would of realised I had deleted the content, I would of added it straight back but I haven't been on wikia since until about 20 minutes ago. I checked the rule guidlines to see if my ban was fair since I have never recieved a warning for anything. This is what the rule states:
This is my first "vandalization" and I never recieved a warning or asked by an admin what happenend. It also states you need two warnings for this to recieve a one week ban. If I purposely did this, I wouldn't be upset and mad and I wouldn't be wasting my time sending messages to you and Selena, but I honestly had no idea. Is there anything that can be done? Thank you for your time!
Also, I forgot to add that I checked my edits and I hadn't edited another page to have done this twice, so my ban was only for accidently deleting some content and pictures which I didn't know I had done. Sorry if this is really long, but I am upset and angry!
Oh no, that's awful!! Sometimes people get bans without warning-- this is something you should contact our Community Support team about. Here is the link if you want to go ahead and copy/paste this message for someone to help out.
Hello, I left a post on there a while ago and never received a reply. There's another person with a thread as well. I was curious. How often is that board updated and who is in charge of it? Sorry for bothering you. Once again, I was just curios on how long the wait time generally is?
Hi, Ariana! It's me again, and I need your design expertise for a wikia I founded about the Worldwalker Trilogy by Josephine Angelini.
I created the wikia on June 20, but I only got around to finishing the first book now. Problem is, the second book is being released early September this year and I have yet to update most of the content from the first book. Since I've been editing on mobile for the past few months, I can't even give the wikia a proper theme. This is where I need your help. Could you possibly revamp Worldwalker Wikia to look identical to its official website, complete with a wordmark, favicon, and background? They don't have to be exactly the same, but it will be nice if you could make it possible. I want to focus on building the content before the second book of the series is released.
I understand if you're extremely busy, seeing as you're a Wikia Staff member. Thanks for hearing me out.
How are you? No problem, definitely happy to help!! This week and next are particularly busy-- but I'll try to squeeze it in sometime if I get a few free hours, otherwise I can probably get it done the third week of August :D
I'll send you a link once I've done some work on it!
Yes, I read Red Queen and Fallen series... both are so good. I just hope the movie actually takes off. I want to see who they will cast as Mare, Maven and Cal. :P As for Fallen... I know wikipedia isn't a reliable source but it says it will be released in 2016. As well as production for a sequel has already began.Source
I have a really good feeling about this movie- there has been so much buzz about it even before the book came out...I also think the book would translate well to screen. Thennn again... there is always that book that totally flops as a movie.
Do you mean book club titles? But yes absolutely!! Right now we're reading The Queen of the Tearling, next month is The Scorch Trials. We run a bunch of group discussions on the wiki, hope you can join in sometime!
Yeah, those! (I also voted on the choices you had for the Red Queen fan castings) I am always looking for outlets where I can express my opinions on the books I read since a lot of my friends are either not avid readers or not into the same books as I am!
Hi, I'd like to inform you that Percy Jackson, Kane Chronicles, and Magnus Chase Wiki have merged their communities together into one collective database. Could you update the books template so that we are now under the "Authors" section as Rick Riordan?
Hi Asnow. Sorry to bother you again. What've I noticed with the first month of Bible Book Club that its not something that lacks interest. There are users interested- that's not the issue.
The problem(s) I am dealing with are :
1. Being able to measure the level of activity/engagement with the Bible Book Study
2. Getting users to engage
3. Quality of videos
4.Getting people actually reading the Bible
I honestly see this as more of a video-driven program and its difficult to create high-quality videos. Overtime the quality will improve. I was wondering if sometime this week (Monday-Wednesday) we could chat for 30 to 60 minutes (I know you might not have that much time) and talk about perhaps ways to get people more engaged with the program and perhaps any ideas on improving videos and intregrating that with the wiki's content.
I'm actually not the expert on videos... I'm probably one of the worst people to ask :( I'm sorry! As for the book club-- I know I've given you some suggestions in the past, so I think that still stands as my best advice. You might consider reaching out to the Literature Wiki admin? He might have some good tips!
The literature wiki admin probably wouldn't help (maybe I would be wrong) but they may not want to give advice on a Christian program. I will try looking back at past advice (difficult to find as it gets archived on message walls) but do you know anybody specific to reccomend me to for the questions (staff or otherwise) ?
Because it got me thinking, why have pages that have little information while you can have them all in the one page. Like it took me ages (3 three for it to be up to scratch) even the main page had to get cleaned. So it look me three weeks for me the clean up the wiki. Now it is going to take me another three more with the relinking part.
