  • Hello Thero,

    I just don't know how to put this without offending you. You have put more work into the wiki than anyone else recently, including me.

    Unfortunately you are still making work for me, or for someone else who will have to follow up with your work on the wiki.

    There are still large numbers of very short pages, which you've created and haven't yet updated.

    You are still creating a lot of crew pages, of very little interest to anyone because they contain almost no information on them, except for data from a single site - IMDb. The data from there is ok generally, but we're not adding any value by recreating a small part of IMDb on the wiki.

    None of the pages I've looked at have any pictures of the crew. Pages without pictures don't get looked at.

    The pages you've created are going to be hard to maintain, they don't contain the full crew Infobox, just the bits of it you've used. This makes it much harder to update for new user, they can't fill in the blanks and contribute easily to the wiki. They have to go and look up what the format is etc. And they never do, so you're creating pages that only experts can update.

    I'll write you again later today, I'm out for an hour now. Read this message again and have a think please.

    Regards,

    Reggie

    • Can't promise about pics, since I'm not sure if I can if Art 13 gets passed. And I overll don't want to get in trouble with copyright, unless it's a character.

    • If you can't create an interesting article, then please don't create one.

  • Hello Thero,

    Hope you're well.

    I can't tell you how much I appreciate the work you're doing on the wiki. Having someone as enthusiastic as yourself about making the wiki a complete resource is brilliant.

    Couple of things I need to speak to you about.

    • Short articles, under 300 characters or so, are frowned on by Fandom / Wikia - the company that host ask of the wikis. It's one of the automated tests they use when deciding which wikis they are going to promote - we need to keep article lengths above 300 characters. It's fairly easy, including a cast or crew template will go a long way towards sorting that. Do you know how to do that? Need a hand? Are you a technical person? (There are tools...)
    • A context for the articles on crew members and named actors - there needs to be somewhere on the wiki that lists the crew to the level of detail you're working at. Do you have something in mind? Want suggestions? Want a hand?
    • Pictures, a lot of these guys won't have images on IMDb. Do you have a plan for getting any?

    Ok, thanks again, don't stop editing, get back to me as soon as you can. By email if you like - just ask.

    • Hello Thero,

      Please don't create articles that are less than 300 characters long, they count against with Wikia / Fandom.

  • Hello Thero,

    Hope you're well.

    I'm puzzled by the Helicopter Article. Do we really need an article explaining what a helicopter is?

    What do you have in mind?

  • Hello Thero,

    Hope you're well. You know the automatically generated galleries on most of the character pages? They all look like something like this:

    <DPL>
        namespace          = File
        category           = Images of Ashley Stubbs
        format             = <gallery hideaddbutton=true widths="150" spacing="small">,%PAGE%\n,,</gallery>
        allowcachedresults = true
    </DPL>
    

    Please forgive me if I'm tell you things you know already, but the key bit of the code above is this line:

    category           = Images of Ashley Stubbs
    

    The DPL code puts together a gallery with all of the images in the Category "Images of Ashley Stubbs"

    You'll see DPL galleries on episode pages as well, but with a category like "Images of Phase Space".

    You don't need to change the page to add a picture to these galleries - Crtl-Click on the picture you want to include, and add the appropriate category for that gallery - you do this near the bottom of the image page, have a poke around.

    I noticed you'd changed the gallery on Ashley Stubbs's page from a DPL gallery to a manual one.

    If it got changed because you didn't know about the Category thing, then - Does this noted make clear how the DPL galleries work? Let me know if there's something you're not clear on.

    If it got changed because you wanted to do something different with the gallery, then - Tell me what you'd like to do and we'll see if we can incorporate that. I'm changing the way things work for another user (by adding a manual gallery after the DPL gall on character pages) so I'd be happy to try to change things for you if I can.

    Talk to you soon.

    Reggie

    • No worries, I'm half-way through changing all of the galleries on character pages so that you can add pictures at the bottom with the add button if you want.

      If I wanted to add an image to a gallery that was already on the wiki?

    • Ok. Is the image you want in the gallery already on the wiki?

  • You're certainly keeping yourself busy while you wait for Season 2!!

    Thanks, that much work doesn't go unnoticed.

    • Thanks! 

      I wanted to ask something. There is the picture with Strand, Bernard, Lowe and Maling. It's beautiful, but is there a way to crop it? Get an image where we mainly see Strand/Maling by the infobox?

  • Hi,

    Just to let you know, I've added an explanatory note to your comment on Evan Rachel Wood's article.

    Thanks for the comment. The issue is clearly an important one to this actor and it's right that we document it on her page here. If you wanted to add the YouTube video to the article that would also be welcome. Let me know if you need a hand with that, out any other work.

    • I’m not really one that edits pages. I’m just here to engage with other people who share same interests. I saw that the video had very little views so I thought you gotta spread awarness. Thank you nonetheless
