  • Gloamglozer and I have noticed you have been an extremely active member of the Edge Chronicles Wiki for quite some time now. This is why we have have decided to give you the status of Content Moderator on this wiki. As a Content Moderator you will be able to do the following: 

    Deleting and moving protected pages

    Deleting and moving files

    Undeleting pages and files

    Rollback Re-upload files

    Protecting and unprotecting pages

    Patrol pages if the community has the

    RecentChanges patrol feature enabled

    We are not going to give you Admin Status at the moment, for the fact that otherwise we would have too many admins and this may seem a bit weird to newcomers. We have noticed Crispy Pancake has also be editing very frequently and it would seem unfair to give one person admin status, but not the other. However do not lose hope- we will be thinking about promoting another wiki member to an admin in the near future!

  • I have been sent this message from a potential person

    I had two questions about the Edge Chronicles contest. Can I write a short story about Rook, for example, or does the main character have to be someone less important? Does it have to 100% conform to canon? 

    I'm pretty sure Rook wouldn't be allowed, however he has since sent me his entry... What shall I say? I don't want just to dismiss his entry after they have put all this work into it(plus, I'm suprised we even got an entry), but yet again it doesn't really fit the brief.

    • Rook definitely isn't a minor character, and I'm not sure what they mean by "100% conform to canon". Rearding the canon, I don't think it matters that much, although ideally it shouldn't contradict the current canon. Regarding the character, I think you should inform them that Rook isn't a minor character, but shouldn't disregard their entry unless we actually get lots. Hopefully they will feel encouraged to write something new about a smaller character.

    • While I am very glad that we already have an entry from someone who isn't one of us, this is a bit of a difficult situation. Rook is not a minor character, and conforming 100% to canon would be preferred... but it seems like a bad idea to reject a short story if someone has already written it. I'm not sure what is the best course of action. I guess that you should answer their questions and accept their story, but encourage them to write another one that fits the idea of the contest.

    • Thank you for your suggestions. I have emailed him back telling him that he can enter this entry, but he may have a less good chance of doing well.

  • Is it okay for you if the chat time will be moved to 6 pm GMT on Sundays?

  • DeadlyDirtBlock, I just wanted to remind you that there is a chat going on right now. We noticed that you edited recently but didn't join, so we thought that you may not have noticed.

    • In future, if I'm not there within the first 5 minutes, then I've most likely forgotten (I'm unlikely to be away from my computer because I have no life). Message me and I'll hopefully show up.

    • I have a alarm on my phone for every Sunday, 6:20 pm. Kind of stupid, but effective.

    • DeadlyDirtBlock: I will then! I'm glad that this message worked today, and hopefully it can work in the future too. In future, I will just reply to this message rather than create a new one

  • Where do you get the images from? What do you do that the quality is so good?

      Loading editor
    • I just take screenshots from Google Books. Not all images are available there, but it works well for those that are.

    • Surely, it must get up to a point where there isn't really anything else to edit.

        Loading editor
    • If we keep editing at this rate, and if the authors don't release anything else after The Descenders, we will eventually reach that point. Maybe in 5-10 years time. At the moment, I'd say about 90-95% of pages on the wiki need working on to bring up to our current standards.

  • Congratulations, it certainly is a record. And as long as you edit productively (eg not intentionally making what would normally be one edit several edits, not making unnecessary edits) I have nothing against you coming near my #1 spot. But I still have more than 4 times as many edits as you do ;) (which don't count because many of them were made before we enabled the badges). And congratulations for now getting you Lucky badge! Have fun editing!

    • In recent history, yes. No idea how it was before I was an admin. But on the WAM we lost like 40 places from December 16th to December 17th. This is so weird.

        Loading editor
    • They seem to fluctuate from day to day, but still, we've moved up hundreds of places in the last week or so.

  • Hi! I can edit any blog post, so if you make one, you and I can access it. Here's my notes so far, edit whatever you want. The Strange Traveler may also have some suggestions here: Thread:6620

    These are the minutes of the weekly Help and Chat time:

    Date and Time: 12/10/17, 5:06 PM, GMT

    People present:

    Issues discussed:

    • The Strange Traveler will maybe edit the Farrow Ridges after Undertown and the Deepwoods
    • What classifies an article stub?
      • Categorizing an article as a stub signals other people that the article needs work. It is also helpful to remember later that you wanted to look something up/edit something later/let others check for grammar. If you have nothing to do, you can also just look up the category and see what pages need work.
    • Who should be on the list of deaths?
      • This should be decided by answering the follwing questions:
        • 1) Was it one (possibly named) person?
        • 2) Did this character's death influence any other character's decisions?
        • So for example: Academy of Wind=Unnamed people, no impacts on characters decision, shouldn't be included. Tug's mother=Named, Tug fled the Nightwoods, should be included
    • How do we deal with last words that we don't know?
      • "N/A" (not applicable) if someone is not capable of speech
      • "Varies" if members of a group said different things, but they should generally be seperated.
      • Words over sounds: If someone uttered last words and then screamed and then died, we keep the last words.
      • Speech marks seperate words from sounds. "Aiiii" is a word, "he screamed" a sound.
      • "Unknown" everywhere we don't know if someone said something/too much happened between what he said and when he died. Blanks should be filled as fast as possible.
      • All these should be added as a key to the Deaths in the Edge Chronicles page.
    • Graphics of the list of deaths could be added.

    • Wow. That's very thorough! I don't think there's anything more I could say, so I probably won't bother making a blog post about it.

        Loading editor
    • But you need to. We will add the next minutes there as well, and if you make the blog post, I can edit it as well. But if I make the blog post, you are not able to edit it or add anything if I might not be around for the chat time. It is just a formality, but you have to make the blog post.

      I just copied a lot of the stuff from the chat and took notes while chatting, that's all.

        Loading editor
    • So should I make a new blog for every chat, or just create one and update it every week?

        Loading editor
    • I guess updating is better. Just put a line in between. There is a better way to do the blog posts, but I forgot how to do that.

  • I saw that your edits don't appears on the Top Contributors list. I though they had fixed this bug long ago, but I contacted the support and they said they have been looking into it for some time and are working on it. If you weren't aware of this problem, sorry for bothering you, but I think the feature is motivating and helpful to see if there's a lot of activity on the wiki, and I was always kind of disappointed when I was ignored by the counter. We appreciate your edits and the answers to my comments ;)

    • I guess we could copy paste the chat log, or make screenshots, if we wanted to do so. You can start a chat at any time, but people can only join if they are online at the same time. Last time we chatted for an hour or so? That was pretty long.

    • The chat is a "Labs Feature", so it is something Fandom/Wikia is experimenting with. That's why it isn't perfect. They even invite you to do give feedback, so I already suggested a few improvements, like it making it more noticeable when there is a chat going on.
