  • Something came up internally, cannot do a project on Dresden Files now or help much. So sorry man :(

  • Just thought to note that in cases such as Nicodemus Archleone, just a link in an otherwise blank section isn't very good for SEO. There should be an abridged version of the content being linked to, so for example Description section would have a short summary of the /Description subpage, & same for In the series etc.

  • Hey, random question if I can. Do we use redirects here at all? Was just thinking that it might be easier in some cases to use various terms to refer to the same page (ie Nemesis / Contagion or Order of the Blackened Denarius / Denarian etc.) These may already exist, I am not sure - in which case is there a way I can see which pages do so? I am a massive noob when it comes to this wiki stuff, so please forgive if its an obvious answer or whatever. Just a random thought bubble I had.

  • yeah, assassinate probs doesn't work. i just didn't really like the tense of 'shoots'... all good, I was more getting at the water beetle bit, but it looks fine now. thanks for all the proofing!

    • Adding content has never been my forte. But I like proofing and doing revisions.

      Excellent job with refs, btw. Spot on!

    I uh, am not really a fan, not sure I can take Mab seriously anymore now that I know that's what her voice sounds like xD I LOVE that they're branching out & that the book is coming soon, but this kinda messed a lot up. Do you think we should update character pages to use the actors from this trailer? They got Dresden, Thomas, Lara, Murphy, Mab, Marcone, Justine, Ramirez, Molly, Maggie, Ebenezar…

    Also HOLY SHIT THEY JUST ANNOUNCED BATTLEGROUND THE 17TH BOOK

    • I must be getting old, I didn't notice Battle Ground - I've placed the order on amazon. PDF of course. :)

      As you may have noticed, I've started the Peace Talks category. Lemme read through the chapter and see how far I can go. Actor names is a though question. If it's only their character's names, I would avoid modifying thir character's pages, way too little info. A mention on Peace Talks page seems more sensible, under a "Trailer" heading.

  • Apparently, according to our SEO specialists, quote sections are actually just fine & might actually help SEO a bit. Just thought to pass that info on to you, since I think I was wrong about being opposed to quote sections before.

    • Meaning, from a practical point of view? Am not keen to start quote sections again - only subheaders in the appropriate paragraphs.

    • what we are currently doing is fairly ideal so you don’t need to, just wanted to make sure you were aware that you could if you wanted.

    • Feel better. Remaking quote blocks again is a daunting prospect with no discernible advantage.

    • no action needed then 👍🏻

  • Hi,

    I'm just checking in with those taking part in the advisors project. Hopefully you will have had some time to see how it works, and have some ideas on how it can be improved!

    How has it been working out for you and this wiki? We know that few people who sign up actually ask questions, but have you had any good (or bad) experiences with those who have?

    Can you think of any areas we could improve on to make this a better system?

    And my final question: looking at the project overall, how many stars out out of 5 would you give it (and why)?

    Thanks so much for being a part of this experiment. Giving your knowledge and expertise to the next generation of editors is a great thing. Thanks!

    • Sannse, greetings.

      I can't say that the advisor project has worked at all; Ursuul and I are the whole community here. There has been only one person signing up, and he hasn't edited since.

      It looks like that the project did not even take off; I can't give it a vote.

    • No problem, even "it hasn't worked for us" is great feedback. Thanks for getting back to me!

  • Hey, I was just adding info about Mike the mechanic based on the newly released story "Mike" on jim's website yesterday. I want to provide accurate references but I'm pretty new to the whole page editing thing.

    What still needs to happen:

    - Add "Mike" short story page

    - Add new short story to the "uncollected" cattegory in the stories pulldown

    - Add proper references to the additions I made on the "Mike Atagi" page



    I'm more than happy to write the actual content for these pages, I just don't want to start messing with stuff and breaking the whole Wiki by accident. So any help would be much appreciated.

    • I'm kinda busy right now, so you're on your own for the next couple of hours. Further I'll have to read the story.

      Feel free to add what you think is needed; I'll go over it when I'm back.

      Best. :)

    • Thanks. So as to not break your wiki, I think I'll just leave it as-is until you can take a look at it. Part of the problem is that I can't create a new page for the short story "Mike" because 'mike' already redirects to the "Mike Atagi" character page. 

      Thanks!

    • Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Try.

    • Ah, I forgot. Should you need to, you can also contact the other local admin, User:Ursuul; he's always happy to answer any inquiry one can throw his way. :)
