  • Hi :)

    This is just to let you know that there's a countdown on the main page that's supposed to count down to the start of season 4 of The Originals, which is a nice idea, only it's going backwards...

  • Howdy! How are you?

    I've been converting infoboxes to PI's recently and I'm just wondering, is there any need to have two infoboxes for the cast of TVD/TO. The TO Actor template is kind of ugly and doesn't match with any of our other templates. Whereas the TVD cast one is nicer. I suggest that we either just use the green infobox for all cast members or use the TVD cast infobox but change the colour to something else.

  • Hey Alaric, what's up? I'd just like to ask if "é" is necessary for Celeste's name (Céleste). I know it's French, but there have been many (a couple or so) tombstones of her shown during the show's run that have shown Celeste's name as 'Celeste' and not 'Céleste'. I think we should go by what the show shows and not with what we, fans/viewers/editors, think. Thanks in advance.

  • Hey Alaric, how are you? I've got a few questions about the status of the navboxes at the end of articles. I've been cleaning them up — and moving people to correct sections — and I've noticed that they're really poorly structured. There are characters in multiple sections for example, Rebekah appeared in both the 'Recurring' and 'Main' character sections, I moved her to just recurring. Is that a right call? I know that she has both 'Main' and 'Recurring' categories on her article so I was wondering, was this done deliberately, should I undo my edit?

    Also for characters that are deceased, but appear in flashbacks. For example, Tobias Fell, Giuseppe, Miranda and Grayson, all appear under the 'recurring' section despite being deceased. Should they remain in those sections or be moved to 'deceased'?

    Last question. How will we deal with characters appearing in both shows? For example, Kol is noted on the TVD template as a 'recurring character' despite being dead. Now, this could be done deliberately, which is why I ask, do we represent TVD Universe as a whole when considering the Navboxes or do we represent just individual shows. If as a whole, Kol could remain in recurring characters, if individual shows, he would move to deceased despite being alive, as he died in the TVD universe. If individual, this then presents problems with crossovers, i.e Finn would have been moved to 'Recurring' on TVD despite being dead, but now he's dead that doesn't matter but we should know for next time. Thanks!


    Also, is it a go ahead with the admin nomination that we discussed? If so, I'll promote.

    • 1.Well, Rebekah is recurring in TVD, and main in TO. I think we should leave her under both. 2.Miranda and others should be under deceased. 3.I'm not sure. Maybe leave them as both deceased and recurring? I don't know. 4. As for the admin, come to chat when you're available.

  • hey how come alot of times when I post a new group of comments in a comment section, it erases half of it and how come also when I stay on a page for a few hours, it wont let me comment cause it calls it session hijacking?

    is there a way to override those two things cause they are getting annoying

    • I see. On the matter of the comments, I'd suggest filing a bug request at Special:Contact/bug, staff will assist in solving the matter.


      I'm not too sure there is a way to override this — as it's a security measure implemented by staff, they won't allow it to be overridden. Simply refreshing the article should do the trick.

  • Hey Alaric,

    How are you? I've taken the time to thoroughly examine the edits of inactive administrators, and I've left them a message on whether they would like to keep their rights. MGC and Buffyfan123, would like to keep their rights in favor of maybe editing here sometime soonish. Scarlett, however, did not want to keep her rights and I have revoked them. This revoke of rights means that either we, keep the admin team at 10 users, which it's now at, or we elect another candidate to fill the spot of Scarlett Spike. I just wanted to know how you'd like to proceed?

    EDIT: In actuality, we actually have two openings on the team due to the demotion of Tyler, but I'm not sure if you want to elect another admin, or two. Let me know :)!

  • Hey Alaric, I'd just like to make sure what was the final decision on TO ages? I know we allowed Hope's age to be updated, but what should we do with the other characters?

    • We can do it, but I'm not sure about the Originals who are in the coffins, maybe time stopped for them?

      This too is a concern of mine. Freya stated that she used the same spell Dahlia had used to keep them alive for a thousand years. However, back when Freya was introduced, she said that the aim of Dahlia's spell was to keep them 'young & beautiful' thus, they did not age — obviously why Freya is still young in appearance. So from this, we can gather that indeed when in use, the spell halts aging. We did, however, despite Freya really only aging 10 years throughout the use of the spell, calculate Freya's age to be over 1,040+ and add that to her article. Taking into account the years that she was under the spell. So the question is, do we calculate the ages from birth, or do we leave their ages as they are without adding the five-year jump on?

    • From birth, I think.
