No problem, I'll run the bot now and correct all to the uppercase variant.
Few things I just wanted to get your opinion on.
Currently [[The Vampire Diaries and The Originals Ratings#The Originals|Ratings]] that is how we style "ratings" on the navigation boxes at the bottom of articles. Of course, this needs to be renamed to include Legacies. I'm not too sure though about what to rename it to, adding Legacies to the end seems that it will be a very long article name, should we just rename "Ratings"?
The Vampire Diaries and The Originals Episodes is also a little long as it stands, rename to just "Episodes"?
One more thing, that I will be consulting the other admins on, aswell as the rest of the community soon. The wordmark. Do you recommend changing it to incorporate Legacies, or just leaving it as it is? If we changed it, do you think that it would be beneficial to add all three logo's, that might be a little cramped? I was thinking maybe just re-doing the logo to say something like "The Vampire Diaries Universe wiki" or something?
I went through and spot checked and cleaned Templates. I think most of the dead links that remain are on user/talk/message wall pages, and maybe a few comments. I vaguely recall that bot's aren't capable of editing those types of articles? If not, there's not too many to correct and I can run through them.
I cleaned up the episode dead links yesterday by had. Overall, there wasn't that many (>20), so it didn't take that long. Okay sweet. I'll continue to browse around and see if there's anything else that should be changed/updated to suit the new spin off.
Yup. A lot of users have been wanting this sort of feature since forums were replaced with Discussions, so seeing it go live is great!
Thanks. I've not heard about that, but it's good to know. Are they replacing it with something else/better? I assume not....
Regardless, that information can just be moved to the Community page. (I know some communities do no have this, but since we do, we could utilize it more.)
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 understand what you mean, and if you think that we should change it back I'd be perfectly happy to rollback my edit. I was just thinking that we should use the most up-to-date terminology as possible.
I think out of convention, most users would still use Ancestral Plane... though for updated clarity/terminology we can just use the name on the article like this -- The Ancestral Plane, also known as The Ancestral Well, was a supernatural dimension....
Previous summaries wouldn't use "Ancestral Well", because that terminology wouldn't have been introduced in earlier seasons, so I think renaming the page wouldn't be representative.
Something to that effect, anyways. What do you think?
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?
And what about the Voodoo page? Could I revert back to what I had and say that it is possible Gloria's decelerated aging was through the use of Voodoo. It never said it was because of Voodoo. Practicing Voodoo doesn't always mean it was because of Voodoo.
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?
So, it would seem we have a timeline issue and wanted your opinion on the matter. So basically given the premiere, we're at a 7 year time jump. The last known date in TO's timeline is May 2019. Now jump 7 years, it's ~May 2026; however, they are preparing for Mardi Gras which is usually February or March. --I've made this note on the timeline that it's either Feb. or May of 2026.
Additionally, Hope was 9 years old, in 2021 when she astral projected to Klaus in Russia, again, confirming that 2026, she's currently 14. This being said, in Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, Freya states that Hope is 15.
At this point, it's quite sad that the writers can't keep a simple timeline, but none-the-less, as far as the timeline goes, by all accounts it's 2026 and Hope is 14. Shall we keep with the timeline as the actual date, Freya's statement, or just include both for prosperity?
EDIT: Alternatively, a 7 year jump from May 2019 to May 2026 would place Hope right on her birthday (which is May 2nd), which would make her 14. The timeline, however, is based on actual Mardi Gras dates, unless they are having Mardi Gras in May (for the continuity of TO).
Firstly, apologies for the late reply. Secondly I'm good thanks, college is stressful, but same old same old. How about you?
I agree. The writers have never been able to follow a timeline correctly. For the moment, the best we can do is follow what the writers have said. Freya stating that Hope is 15 is what we will, at this moment, have to go off for canonical reasons. However, it should be noted on the bloopers article that, yet again, there has been a timeline mix-up.
We haven't really seen anything about Hope's birthday, in the way of celebrations or anything, though right?
If more information comes out in the future that points to our original timeline being correct, we can change that up and note that Freya actually made a mistake.
I'm good. Not as much stress, currently. :) No worries about the timing. It's not a big issue and I just locked the page until it could be reviewed and decision be reached.
No, we've not seen anything by means of celebration (or otherwise) for Hope's birthday, which would have occurred during/after (give or take) the Hollow's de-possession of Hope and the separation of the Mikaelsons.
Regardless, I can make the necessary correction using Freya's statement as a confirmed source, until proven otherwise.
I've been noticing on pages that proper nouns such as names of magic types/practices, beings like Originals/Evolved Werewolves, and etc. aren't capitalized like they should be and I have been editing them for a little while now. I've recently been told that I had to inform you of them so your bot could take care of them.
