  • Hello, there. I'm an admin from the Your Hero Academia Wiki which is relatively new and my friends and I just got started on it. A friend told me you were good at source code editing and I was wondering if you could help us out a bit? So far, we've managed to create two character infoboxes kind of based off of some old versions of the ones in this wiki and the TVD Novels Wiki. I was wondering if you could help us create a character infobox styled like the one on your profile page with the ability to switch between three categories: Hero, Villain and Vigilante (which would change the color coding like your wiki's Template:Character when editing the "universe" code). Our codes would use your user profile's character template style with a couple more categories and use the colors "orange", "dark red" and a "dark purple" or "magenta" of sorts for each of the previously stated character categories respectively.

    Please let me know if you can help or if you know someone else who can, it would be much appreciated! :)

  • Hi Luke! It's been a minute. How are you? You good? Anyway, I was wondering why the backdoor pilot isn't listed in the "previous episode" in the episode template of This is the Part Where You Run and if I could add it if there since that's where it technically starts. Also, can I do the same for Always and Forever?

      Good to hear that. I'm good, graduated back in June and taking a gap year to figure out what I wanna do first in university so I've got all this free time on my hands, it's kind of liberating and maddening at the same time.

      Yes. Feel free to add this.

      Cool, thanks.

  • Hello, Luke!

    Hope this message finds you well! Haven't been around for a minute. Not sure if you are aware but I have been working on my own wiki on-and-off for about 4 years. It is coming along nicely, slowly but surely. However, I do not know how to create infobox template codes, as the ones already there are either standard wiki infoboxes or were added on by other sources several years ago. Specifically, season page infoboxes, character appearances, and for in-universe groups. If you could help/teach me, it would be much appreciated.

    • Hey Patrick, hope you have been well.

      I'm not sure if you're aware of the new infobox syntax, but things have been simplified massively. Infoboxes for characters and seasons are easily made, and then styled through CSS. I have included the syntax for the season infoboxes we use here, and then the CSS can be found at MediaWiki:Themes.css.

      For other infoboxes, such as character appearances, do you have anything in mind? I can help you design something if you have any ideas.

      Let me know what exactly you want help with, I can help you style them if you have the basics down.

      <infobox theme="to-infobox-season">
      	<title source="Season"><format>Season {{{Season}}}</format></title>
      	<image source="Image"/>
      	<group layout="horizontal">
          <data source="Season"><label>Season</label></data>

      	</group>
      </infobox>

    • Okay, so I would simply make a new page then copy-paste the code and I'm done? Seems simple enough. Thanks.

      For character appearances, I was thinking basically the chart that is here, or something similar to it. For example, a chart for the character appearances here:

      https://cw-series-fanfiction.wikia.com/wiki/Supergirl_Season_3

      Would I need to make a different code for each season?

  • Hello again! I think it would be very difficult to work in a third logo and still be easily readable, but I can try. Just link me to a (preferably transparent) version of the third logo, and I'll see what I can do.

    In the meantime, I'll work on a wordmark that displays "The Vampire Diaries Universe Wiki" and show it when it's ready.

  • That information was already confirmed to be incorrect. She was not born in May. If you are going by Kol's statement in 4x03 that was a continuity error.

    "This is madness. How can a 16-year-old girl shake the entire French quarter?" - 1x11 (Klaus about Davina)

    " I'm gone not three months and look at the trouble your in". - 5×12TVD (couple weeks after 1x11 Rebekah to Matt), she had left at the end of Summer right before he started college in 1st episode of season 5. 3 months after August/September is November/December)

    "They've got every **16-year-old girl** in our coven dying to be one of the four chosen for this crazy-ass ritual". - Sophie to Marcel in flashback **8 months prior to 1x02 which took place same time as 5x01 in September** (end of summer/starting college), September minus 8 months is January.

    ^ these dates confirm Davina was 16 between January 2011 to November 2011. Putting her date of birth between November 1994 to January 1995. 

    If it was May 1994 then she would have been 17 when she 1st appeared, despite it saying multiple times she was 16. If it was May 1995 then she would not have been 16 at the Harvest, despite it being said in flashback (1x05) that she was.

    See thread.

  • Hi there, Original Authority,

    For consistency, I was wondering if you'd run your bot to fix these episodes names (and their transcripts) so all episodes are formatted the same?

    • [[Isobel (episode)]] --> [[Isobel (Episode)]]
    • [[Rose (episode)]] --> [[Rose (Episode)]]
    • [[Klaus (episode)]] --> [[Klaus (Episode)]]

    • Graduation (Episode)
    • The Originals (Episode)
    • Legacies (Episode)

    Or vise versa with (episode). With Legacies now an episode title, some are (episode) and other are (Episode). Seems like somewhere down the line after season two, 'E' was used and followed.

    Just let me know whenever/whatever you decide and I'll go through and clean up straggling dead links.

    • For some reason, I'm thinking that was taken with a Polaroid(?)... But, yes, I believe so. I'd have to double check to be sure though. I vaguely remember the episode.

    • Smh. Another continuity error. The Episode was The Map of Moments and yes it was burned. (Image from finale)

  • I'm curious; why are we changing Ancestral Plane to Ancestral Well, when in 4 and a half seasons, Ancestral Plane has been used and Vincent (3x) has only called it Ancestral Well in one episode. (Ivy called it as such only once in the same episode).

    I think the connotation is stemming from the Ancestral Well of Magic that was used in S3 (when Freya took Ancestral Magic via Davina), so if Ancestral Well can be used interchangeably with Ancestral Plane, wouldn't it just be a nickname? It would save cleanup with the bot anyways.

    I was just curious about the reasoning. Thanks :)

    • Not at all related, but have you got any idea what month it is in TO right now? I've always been a little confused. Does the universe follow the same months as us out of universe?

    • We discussed this, briefly, I believe in regards to Hope's birthday.

      Given the time jump exclusively of 7 years would place the timeline in May (I think Hope just having turned 15), though given it's Mardi Gras, it would be in February given irl dates.

      As far as the length of time for S5, JP and co, claims S5 spans the time of only 2 weeks.

      I'm not really in the position atm, to really dive deeper into this, but I can explore it over the next few days.

  • I was hoping you might be able to settle a little disagreement between me and Bennett Blood. I added images of grimoires to the Grimoire page, but they were reverted because they were not the focus of the images and were hidden. I say they are in the images and can be seen even with all the other things around it, what do you think? In terms of the spelling policy, should the Playhouse be the Playhouse or The Playhouse?

    • Vampires is not a proper noun.

        Loading editor
    • In the case of wikipedia:

      A proper noun is a noun that in its primary application refers to a unique entity, such as London, Jupiter, Sarah, or Microsoft, as distinguished from a common noun, which usually refers to a class of entities (city, planet, person, corporation)"
      Original vampires is capitalised as such as "Original" refers to the "Unique" but vampires is common.

  • Hey,
    I've made my bot cross-wiki fix redirects on User:Ripto22475, but it hit into an abuse filter on this wiki and was unable to fix the redirect. Could you redirect that userpage to User:Icier instead?

    Cheers!
