Hi Luke, I have a few concerns about the way the admin voting is conducted. Firstly; as far as I understand only you have access to the results, and this would not be a free and fair process. And secondly: In this format, by voting one would inadvertently give you one's email address. Therefore I have state that I strongly disapprove of this method of voting.
Yes, only I have access to the result, but at any time, I can share the results with anyone necessary. I am in no way fiddling the results. However, to keep privacy of users, I will not reveal their votes to anyone but the current administrative team. Please note that Alaric and I have decided this is the correct way to pertain the results we need.
To address the problem with email, users are free to contact me to put forward their vote without putting forward their email. On the other hand, this allows me to make sure that users only vote once. Besides, many users have their own email addresses for wiki, so the problem is negated.
I've been checking on the page Season One (The Originals) page and found a mistake in the Episode Guide section, in the summary of the episode Le Grand Guignol. By the end, it says "Phoebe's wolf clan". It should be Hayley's wolf clan, Phoebe is the actress. The template is protected so I couldn't edit it but I think you could.
Hello! I was wondering if the above photo could be used for the new Mikaelson family photo? It is a photo taken from during filming and on-set; the photo is good quality, and from their clothes, you can tell the photo was taken during the filming for Season Four, Episode Three.
This photo shows all the current, active and living Mikaelsons: Freya, Elijah, Klaus, Kol, Rebekah, and Hope. Hayley's there, too, so if you like her, that's a bonus too (I know a lot of people don't like her). I think it would be a better photo for the Mikaelson family photo. And while it may be from filming and on-set, the photo is very good and they appear in character.
I have already asked another admin (Alaric Saltzman) if we could use this photo for the Mikaelson family post. He said "Maybe" and that he was on board--however, he also requested that I ask another admin as well. So, I am here seeking clarification, and posting my pitch. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
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, Idk if this new design or something else, but I can't edit the actually large articles (like Damon's and Bonnie's) through the classic editor. I'm using Safari. Do you know anything about this?
Hey, I am able to edit those articles using Chrome, so it's probably not the Navigation's fault. It's best to notify staff about this through Special:Contact/bug.
