Hey OA, hope everything is well. I just wanted to message you quickly about the locked pages due to edit wars that ensued after TVD ended. When do you think is a good time to start unlocking certain articles to other users to edit? I know another user was curious being they wanted to help update the articles.
The certain articles the user is referring to is Stefan and Caroline's pages. The issues of it (editing war) has been taken care of for now.. (it's going to be locked back for users) I talked about it a bit from weeks ago, if you see the user re-add the temporarily death that is already agreed to stay on the deceased page, can you warn the user? It wouldn't be right if they start another editing war. Also the other user you warned about multiple pages edits, you probably have to keep an eye on because of the original post..
The next stage of our Wiki Modernization project is to test the page and article headers, which you can read about here. We'll begin running this test on Thursday this week.
Like we said in the blog, here's what we'll be looking at in the test:
How do readers interact with the new headers? We'll look at the number of clicks on header links, as well as how many people use the new headers vs the old ones.
What do editors think of the new design? We'll gather feedback and interaction data from you, ask follow-up questions, and do our best to understand your needs. We want a design that works well for everyone.
We want help from you and your community in figuring out if we got it right or what potential areas for improvement might be. Feel free to comment on both the reader and editor side of the header designs. We especially want to know what you think as an editor. Please leave any feedback for me here on this thread.
You are also welcome to share this information with your community, that way they are aware of the changes that have been made.
Hi, I was checking some episode pages and I saw that some of them have poor quality, so I want to upload new versions, can I do it? Also, I hope that it doesn't bothered you that I uploaded new versions of the images in Gather Up the Killers, the ones with the logo. If I did it, I apologize.
Hello La Ley, as long the images aren't edited, they are fine of being bigger than the original size released by the network.. Thanks for providing the source so I don't assume you're uploading edited images for size.. I'm a bit sad they didn't put that kind of hq version for TVD.
Ok, I don't need help with images with lower quality yet because the latest ones have their quality updated. If you see any images from earlier seasons of TO that needs quality updated, let me know through message. I can try to see if season 3 needs it when I'm not busy because the link is helpful for me to look for HQ images (when other sites don't have it up), usually I get them from one of the main sources that publishes news on both of the shows..
Just a friendly reminder, whenever you upload videos, can you check the title of the description? Because it looks like it automatically titles the description in spanish and we post in english, other users and myself had to edit the title every time it happens..
Hi OA, I was wondering why you changed the "We're Planning A June Wedding" Page, spesifically the cast section and Katherine Pierce, especially since we don't know if she is uncredited or not so I was wondering why you changed that
We can not credit Dobrev as playing Katherine. There is a lot of speculation that Katherine will return in Vicki's body or whatever; even though this is unlikely, we cannot credit Dobrev as playing her until we see her face in tonights episode.
Hi OA, I notify a user about this edit of adding screencaps of Rebekah, they labeled TVD screencaps correctly but she titled it wrong for Rebekah when she was on TO season 1 (it didn't say what season/episode it was from, however I only saw she categorized it as TO season 1 screencaps).. It confused me on which episode it was from (I told her about the media policy on her message wall, not sure if she got it)..
Edited: She titled it right for next screencaps (had to rename/replace it because originally the titles didn't look right before I had to name it properly and replace it), but she didn't replace the misnamed images and she also started an edit war (which is why their pages got lo locked) mostly on Caroline and Stefan's own page by adding info of death that wasn't significant since it was temporarily for Stefan when Cade bring him and Damon back when they were serving him..
