I jsut discovered that people are adding gifs and other pics to the quotes sections of characters/couples. I just spent five minutes (literally, five minutes) trying to load the editors of both the DE and SE pages. And then my browser crashed thanks to that and had to start all over again.
The amount of images and gifs (including the galleries) is honestly ridiculous. Nobody is going to look at 2000 pictures. There's honestly no need for such amount of pics. There's no need to have every single scene of a ship/char in the gallery.
This is exactly the reason why I proposed to get rid of ALL gifs in the 1st place (maybe leave just the one in the infobox, but not the rest), pages are ridiculously heavy, and it seems nobody is monitoring these pages to make sure stuff remain under the rules. Over 2k images in one single page is overkill. Most wikis have just a few images because they take into account computer and ISP capabilities.
Months ago, I took the time to remove gifs from galleries, and now I see most of the galleries have gifs again...
Srsly guys, not everybody has ultra fast internet.
Hi, all not to interupt but, I was wondering what's the point of having a message wall - as an admin - if people can't leave messages? And also I'd like to know why File:Elena & Jeremy S6 was deleted. (It's been inactive - out of use for only 8 days.)
I completely forgot about my wall. After I got chain death threats and I disabld it. Have you not seen that some months ago? Second, the bot removes unused files no matter date. When you have over 2k unused files, you don't really check the date. If people don't want the file remove, then they should put it under their own profile, that way it will be safe.
Hey Alaric, I messed up and renamed a page two times and then I redirected it somehow. Long story short, I put everything back to normal but can't delete the two new pages that I created by mistake. Can you delete them for me?
Hey, Im not sure who should i talk to regarding the pages of each episode of the TVD and TO.
I was reading through the episodes and looked at the Trivia area, and noticed that each page have an antagonist listed for that particular episode.
No offense to anyone, but it really annoys me to see very little character did a little bit evil to be considered an antagonist.. an antagonist tends to be a major villain in a particular movie, series or season. I was looking at the new episode of TVD; and saw the page of the episode and it says Kai and Caroline is the villain? Though it says indirectly next to Kai's name but that doesn't deserve to be called an antagonist... neither does Caroline since she did not do any major evil to be considered an antagonist.
that's like if(an example) you have an antagonist list on that particular season. you'd have to list every person in the whole season.
I was wondering if you, maybe some other people could do something about it.
I just wanted you to ask that should we rename Stefan and Damon's Mother to Lily Salvatore, because it's pretty much confirmed that she's struck in Prison World. I just want to be sure before I rename it, because having two different pages for same characters is confusing.
Also, is she a human or a witch? For now, I added Unknown Status category, if that's okay.
I don't know. People just write down the antagonists of particular episode. Major or minor. For me, it doesn't matter at all. If that character did a little evil thing or major; played as an antagonist for that episode, it's fine. And it's actually really helpful sometimes. If you wanna know the antagonists of some episode, you don't have to watch the whole episode again, just to find that out.
Though, if you think that it should be deleted, then that's a all of episode pages to edit.
If you need another opinion on the antagonist thing, I believe the contributor has a point. Because there is no consistent pattern we seem to follow on that. Matt and Jeremy were deemed antagonists because they went after Enzo, and the reasoning was "because he is a main character". However in season 3, Klaus was a main character and had someone going up against him in almost every episode, yet none were deemed antagonists, because Klaus was already the antagonist of that season. Just like Enzo is of this season.
I really have no idea. I guess, you have a point too. I don't know about Jeremy and Matt thing, but I do know that Kai and Caroline were termed as antagonists of Let Her Go (ONE particular episode) because indirectly because of Kai, Bonnie had to face some problems in getting out of Prison World. And Caroline snapped Elena's neck. That makes them the antagonists of THAT particular episode. When Elena switched off her humanity in Season Four, though she is the protagonist of the show and wasn't the main antagonist of Season Four, but she acted as an antagonist for few episodes. Maybe, that Jeremy-Matt thing needs to be removed because like Mgc said that Enzo is already the main villain of this season, but they are some minor antagonists too. And that's what is written down in the Trivia section. The minor antagonists of the episode/season.
But clearly, this is up to you guys (admins). I'm just giving my opinion. Maybe you guys can discuss this situation with all the other admins and then come up with a solution. Bit it would be really appreciated if you guys decide to NOT remove it because sometimes when we need to know the antagonists of a particular episode, we don't have to watch the episode again.
Seriously, who actually wastes time writing those down ?? I'll never understand some people ..
I am for minor/episode antagonists .. as long as there is a consistent pattern. I agree, Kai was antagonist and .. Caroline is debatable but she will be in following episode .. But it's (no offense) kinda stupid to write Jeremy and Matt antagonists because Enzo is a main character - ergo a protagonist - because Enzo was the one who is going up against Stefan ("the" main character), which puts him to the antagonist section.
Hehe. Crazy people who have nothing better to do than annoy people, I guess.
I agree with you on that. It's stupid to write Jeremy and Matt in antagonists section. It can be removed. But that doesn't mean that there are no other minor antagonists in the shows that needs to be listed down. I'll remove Jeremy and Matt from the section but I guess, except that, rest is fine. So, why should we remove the antagonists part from the Trivia?!
Hi Alaric. I was just about to update the last words article with the death of Kol. However, he already appears under the 'vampire' section. Should I just add him again under the 'witch' section or just leave him in the 'vampire' section? Thanks in advance.
