    waifs are cool. The ability to read minds is cool. Being small is cool. I wish Paul Stewart had used this amazing species more often.

    Bot Proposal

    September 12, 2018 by JimTheEagle

    Hello again,
    Due to a recent discussion on our Discord, I'm looking for community approval to run a bot on our wiki. The bot will be located at User:Banderbot. I'm currently thinking of using AutoWikiBrowser, but if there are tasks that can't be done with that I'll be using a C# application and CXuesong/WikiClientLibrary.

    However, before I can run a bot, I need to get your approval. This is important, since bots need to be labeled as bots to comply with the Terms of Service, but FANDOM won't label it as a bot for me unless I can show approval. If you're not sure what this means, please read Help:Bots on Community Central.

    For the present, the bot will just be used for recategorization jobs (mostly related to the new Multimedia Categorisation Po…

    This blog post is outdated. Please see the Multimedia Categorisation Policy


    Hi Everyone,
    As you may have noticed we currently have little or no structure for categorizing images and other multimedia files. Below is my suggestion for a categorization schema for these files.


    I propose breaking down the files into Images, Videos, and Other Files.

    • Images should be categorized by subject and origin.
    • The only subcategory currently needed in Videos is Timelapses, as we have several of these.
    • Other files, I'm not aware that we currently have any, but we might later, so how they are categorized will be determined by what comes.

    • Images
      • Images of Quint
      • Images of Twig
      • Images of Rook
      • Images of (character)
      • Maps
      • Book covers
      • etc...
      • Images from The Curse of the Gloamglozer …

    Imagemaps are important for a wiki like us. When you have a fictional universe, maps form the best way for those unfamiliar with it to get a feel for the world and its layout. Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell have been amazing enough to provide us sketches that we can use to give that added insight into the world they created. These imagemaps are powerful tools because they connect names and information with places on a physical map.

    However, navigation and presentation are equally important. Visitors will always form an opinion of us from our articles. If our articles are informative and tidy, visitors are more likely to come back. But if our articles don't follow our own policies or feel messy and unprofessional, it has the opposite effect. T…

    Thank you for all the people who were involved in the Fan Fiction Competition. The standard was so high, making it really difficult for me to choose a winner, but we had to make the descision... While judging this , I decided to make two prizes instead of one- one for the Writing called the Professor of Darkness and one for Illustrations called the Professor of Light . The Professor of Darkness is CrispyPancake and our Professor of Light is Dominic Bell!!! Look below to read the winning and highly commended entries...

    This is my entry for the Edge Chronicles Wiki Fanfiction Contest of March/April 2018. I based my entry of off the canon Single-Page Short Stories. Be aware that, while this story is about a character from Doombringer, it contains no spoliers and you will be fine to read it even if you haven't read the book. Without further ado, here is the story:

    Doombringer—Artifuce, a tavern waif at the Winesap Inn (read Chapter Twenty-Four for his appearance in the book)

    “Most people think that my job is an easy one, and I would know, because I’m a ghostwaif , and I hear them think it. But the truth is, people who think that being a tavern waif is easy are dead-wrong.

    There is a lot more to my job than sitting in my nicely carved chair up on the pillar all …

    NOTE THAT THIS Q&A IS NOW OVER AND NEW QUESTIONS WILL NOT BE ANSWERED


    The Edge Chronicles Facebook have announced that they will be having an interview with Paul Stewart about The Descenders. In this post, we can compile our best questions for him.


    • Why did Nate never mention his half-brother, Thadeus, and which parent do they share? 
    • Will we get any more information about the Midwood Decks or Riverrise in The Descenders?
    • About how long do you imagine that the First Age of Flight lasted?
    • What was there before the Mire? If it's now grassland, was it like that as well before the Undertownders dumped their toxic waste there? Or was it a forest?

    In the editions of The Edge Chronicles that were printed with the newer Chris Riddell covers, showing a single character, the first page of each book had a short story where it expanded on a background character.

    These are currently only available in that edition of the series, but Paul Stewart kindly gave me the drafts. Each of these stories was also accompanied by the characters' face in a wreath. I've attatched all of these images that I could find, but some are still missing.  The pages were then removed from the current (as of January 2018) editions, which have the Jeff Nentrup covers. 


    • These may not be exactly word-for-word what is in the books, because these were drafts.

    Wasn't sure where to put this, so I decided to make a blog about it.  :D

    I've been a fan of the Edge Chronicles for many years now, but I've only just realised (after seeing the list of deaths) how few characters actually knew their parents, especially their mothers.

    • Vilnix - Abandoned in the Undertown Sewers
    • Quint - His mother died when he was 3
    • Maris - Her mother died in childbirth, father died when she was 15
    • Twig - Left in a woodtroll village at birth, never met his real mother
    • Cowlquape - His mother died when he was a child
    • Keris - Her mother died when she was 1, father left when she was 3
    • Rook - Both parents died when he was 5
    • Felix and Varis - No mention of a mother, so Fenbrus was probably their only parent
    • Xanth - No parents mentioned

    This blog post is just for all the monthly polls that were done on the main page of the Edge Chronicles Wiki. Maybe someone can learn something from it, for example that most people prefer the Twig Saga and the First Age of Flight over everything else. Kind of oldfashioned, one might say ;)

    If you have other suggestions for new polls, put them in the comments or add them to this conversation.



    • The poll "Which is your favourite Edge Chronicles Saga?" ended on April 1st, 2017. 15 votes were cast and Twig got 53,33%, Rook 20%, Quint 13,33% and Nate and Cade each 6,67% of the votes.

    This page was to track our achievements. We achieved all our goals in January 2018! We were only two people when we revived this wiki, but now have more active, motivated contributors and a wider range of people reading this wiki. Thank you all for using this wiki, reading articles or even contributing to this wiki!




    Hi everyone,

    Sadly, there are not many people contributing to this wiki. Running this wiki all by ourselves isn't nearly as much fun and much more work than running it as a community.

    Over time, we implemented these measures:

    • The Facebook post about the Community on The Edge Chronicles Official Facebook
    • The poll on the mainpage (that shows that there are more than two people on this wiki!)

    If you created an ImageMap like explained in this guide, the ImageMap might still not be working properly.

    There are a few things that might have gone wrong:


    If you cannot see the blue image sign in the right bottom corner or you ImageMap seems to be too big for the site, there are two things that might be wrong:

    • Try to change the image's size by changing the File:HERECOMESTHENAMEOFTHEPICTUREYOUUSE.PNG|left|640px command. Try different values for the number of pixels and see which one fits the best. 650px is usually a good value. 300px is way to small and 1000px are bigger than the article and the image won't show properly.
    • If your image doesn't resize when you change the number of pixels check if you have a [...] in your coding. You might ha…

    Check out this Guide on the Standardisation of Image Maps on the Edge Chronicles Wiki



    ImageMaps are maps or pictures that, when you click on something, take you that page on the wiki. For an example, see ImageMap The Edge or to the article on the First Age of Flight or Sanctaphrax. This is an easy to follow guide on how to create ImageMaps of whatever you like. All you need is a picture, this guide and a page on the wiki where'd you want to put your ImageMap. Best open those pages in several different tabs in your browser. Creating an ImageMap will take you about half an hour, depending on how many objects there are on the picture. Your first ImageMap will probably take some more time, but you can always pause the project as long as you com…

    Weird New Worlds

    February 4, 2016 by Gloamglozer

    Hi,

    I don't know if this already exists - I am new - but I thought, I'd start one anyway.

    Okay, so the important thing is that I can't find the sequel/prequel ( whatever it is) on the Farrow Ridges. This is supposed to be a blog by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell on the website http: //www.weirdnewworlds.com/ according to http:// theedgechronicles.wikia.com/wiki/Weird_New_Worlds

    (Sorry, I can't put the links here, this site made me do the security test over and over again, so I put a space in there. Just leave it out. )

    Nevertheless, the site Weird New Worlds doesn't work. I know the story was finished in 2013 or something, but the site doesn't seem to exist anymore.

    Did anyone like save this blog or knows where I can get it from? Or is just the U…
