  • Thanks for editing so many pages on this wiki!

    • No trouble! Just saw that a lot of the infoboxes on this wiki weren't working properly and that some templates could really be used. Hope to also go over the content once I'm done with that project :)

    • Oh and also, do you know who has admin abilities? Some pages really need to be deleted and also a few pages that really need some editing are locked (e.g., The Enchantress)

    • Hello,

      That image was posted before my time and I don't know precisely where it came from; however, I did a reverse Google Image search and found this page (link).

      Information about that image can be found there. I'm fairly sure that's the original source due to the nature of the website/account.

      Hope that's useful!

  • Hi, Stinky troll!

    The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel wiki was included in the now-retired Book wiki footer. A new fantasy literature footer has been created, and I was wondering if I could place it on the main page, since this site meets all the new requirements for inclusion.

    Best regards,

    Raylan

  • Could the List of Elders page be readded?

    • My hope is that all the elders will be listed on the "Elders" page, along with a short description (which would sort of act like a list). If you want though, you can rebuild the "List of Elders" page and leave it at that if it looks good. Ideally I'd also like to make a page for "Dark Elders", and work on the "Next Generation" information/page.

      Re:Candidates for deletion; yeah, I've deleted several of them, I'll finish the job.

      Re:pictures; I did go through and get rid of something like 100 (seriously), but properly dealing with them is on my to-do list. I'd also like to give them useful names, and (if I have the time) see whether we should legally be using them.

    • Re:images; while I can delete them, I won't if they still appear on at least one page. Those images that you mentioned should be removed from their original pages if they really don't belong.

  • By the way, I requested to adopt the wiki and wanted to see if it was okay with you.

      Loading editor
    • That's not really the intended function of "adopt a wiki" - "adopt a wiki" is intended for wikis where all administrators have been entirely absent for at least two months.

      That said, if you need to be able to use administrator powers, I'm happy to give them to you as long as you actually need them to get a bunch of stuff done. If there are only a few minor things you need done, just let me know. Another thing I might be able to do is change what powers are available to all non-admin users.

    • One of the admins say that since you apparently didn't have bureaucrat rights, I would need you to inform you that I was requesting to adopt the wiki.  I do need them to get a bunch of stuff done.  You're not exactly here a lot and the wiki desperately needs to be cleaned up and the wiki, and you, need all the help it can get. What powers are available anyways? 

        Loading editor
    • I did hear about "bureaucrat privileges” when I went through the adopt-a-Wiki process myself (though I totally forgot that I didn't have them). Bureaucrats are one step up from admins; only a bureaucrat can make you or me an admin or a full-fledged bureaucrat. Since I was never given these, I'm actually unable to give you any new powers – we'll have to wait for adopt-a-wiki to do give them to you our me. (Unless one of our long-lost bureaucrats comes back from the dead; Bigbrologan has been gone since 2009, and Cörey hasn't been seen since early 2016.)

      Re:Admin privileges; admin privileges are useful for a bunch of stuff. You can delete pages, and gain the ability to change edit protection on pages. (I've had to de-protect a number of pages that were edit-proof before; I thought I fixed them all but last week I found two I missed. The only important page that is still protected is the front page.)

      The most important tool available to admins is the admin dashboard. The dashboard lets you look at the structure of the wiki (category structures, lists of pages, lists of specific wiki-content, etc). I know it looks like I have been inactive (and I admit I was AWOL for a long while earlier this year), but I have also been doing a lot of stuff behind-the-scenes. (You can look here for proof)

      Anyway, you're absolutely right; this wiki does need all the help it can get. I just wanted to make sure you had a use for admin powers (I do apologize if this came off as being overprotective). Unfortunately it turns out I don't have the power to give them to you, but you have my full support for obtaining them!

      One last thing; I'm currently working on a new category system for the whole Wiki. If you see a maelstrom of editing in the next week or so, that's what that is.

  • Hello there. I've just wanted to ask what the different Level Priorities you're tagging the articels with are supposed to mean. At the moment they merely look like some big spam. Yours truly JK

    • Hi, sorry for the unreasonably long reply time. I was working about 50h for the last few weeks and had some major computer trouble.

      Well, two reasons; 1) I was in the middle of final exams and sort of lost my mind while looking for stuff to do that wasn't studying, and 2) I thought it might be useful to have something on the front page along the lines of "Want to help the wiki? Check out our lists of pages that need to be improved!".

      The idea was:

      Level 1: Really important pages that need major work. For example, the page on The Enchantress is one of the most important on our wiki, but doesn't have any of the information it needs.

      Level 2: A fairly important page that needs to be restructured or revamped. For example, the page on Archons.

      Level 3: Medium to low traffic pages that need a reasonable amount of editing.

      Level 4: Low priority, but needs to be brushed up. Maybe the article is short, or needs one or two more details.

      In retrospect, devising that whole system wasn't a good use of time, and kind of looks like spam. As I said I was kind of losing my mind, but the system could be an okay place to start in terms of letting people know what needs work.

      Anyway, I'll be back on the Wiki a lot more again; the last month wasn't brilliant.

    • Alright, that sounds reasonable indeed.

        Loading editor
    • Maybe - I still regard it as a bad idea, but maybe it'll wind up being useful. At any rate, the next time I have some grand schemes like that, I'll run them by the forums for a bit.

  • Hello. I saw your request, and I just gave you bureaucrat rights. Keep up the good work!

  • As a long time fan of SOINF, it saddens me to see the wiki in such a sorry state. I'm willing to help, but also to make some changes. With that in mind, I wish to ask: what are the requirements for promotion? 

    My knowledge of the first 4 books is almost complete, but I've sadly never had the chance to read 5th and 6th.

    • Hello!

      Well, if you're looking to help out by improving existing pages, this is an incomplete list of pages that need attention; you can choose the topics that you know the most about and work on those. I think the most important project right now is to improve the summaries for the books in the series.

      In terms of promotion: You can do almost anything on this wiki with your current user level. I think the only major things you can't do are delete pages and edit the rights of other users. If you need to do either of those things, just let me know and I can do them for you. If you make regular contributions to the wiki, then I'd be more than happy to grant you additional powers if you think you need them!

      I am aware that the Wiki is a little rough in patches; that's partly because it's been a while since the author has added to the series. Every few months the passion to improve the Wiki strikes me and I'll make a few hundred edits before hibernating again. But if you leave messages as you have done here, I will usually reply within 24h.

      Best wishes,
