New PollsEdit

Hey! Would you mind taking a look at and voting on the three new polls. Adamtoise and I thought that we should decide on a main antagonist since there are so many opinions on S4 (Marnie, Antonia), S5 (Lilith, Salome, Russell, Bill, Bud Dearborne and Sweetie even lol), S6 (Warlow, Sarah, Truman). We thought it would be less junky if we all decided on an antagonist. Tysonjackson (talk) 23:23, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

Re: PollsEdit

Lol, yeah. And it's on the Polls page. :D Tysonjackson (talk) 23:28, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

Antonia/MarnieEdit

Also the reason I think Antonia should be listed as the main antagonist instead of Marnie is because 1. Antonia was the one who most of everything. She held Tara and the coven hostage, She led the attack on Festival of Tolerance, and the attack on the vampires in 4x07 (I think), she was the one who also led the coven during the Vampires/Witch war in Spellbound. 2. Marnie was revealed to be evil in 4x10, Antonia left in 4x11 and Marnie was killed in the end of that episode. She only really did anything in 4x12. Tysonjackson (talk) 23:38, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, but if it hadn't been for Marnie, Antonia would have never bothered anyone. Marnie channeled her, and awoke her essentially. QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 23:44, September 4, 2014 (UTC)
I guess that's true. I guess they're at equal footing for the role. And what do you think about S6? Are you the one who voted Warlow? Tysonjackson (talk) 23:46, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

BreaksEdit

Sorry... I've been revising old edits. I could see getting rid of the {{-}} tags because they did spread the content a little far apart. The <br /> tags were to keep headers from running into the content sections from the section that proceed the violating sections. On smaller pages they were only to match the uniformity of larger pages by keeping content too close together... I only put the {{-}} tag before the Appearances header because a lot of the smaller pages fall victim to the header being separated from the Appearance tables when the Table of Contents are hidden. I felt the {{-}} tag below the Appearances table should be required to keep the default "See other wikis" content separated from the actual page content... But however. If you really think they need to go, I'll remove them all, even though, like I said, certain sections run together without the breaks. It was all just part of an effort to achieve a fluid consistency and cohesiveness. I already plan on removing the {{-}} tags, but if you don't want the <br /> tags either, I'll take care of them and just won't do it again. I do really hate seeing the Appearances header separated from the Appearances tables, though... But I promise I'll fix all occurrences. I don't want to... do anything that you don't want me doing... Adamantoise (talk) 23:48, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

I think the sections flowing together is better than having large gaps. Especially on pages that are quite long, it takes up less space if you have them together. Hope that makes sense. QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 23:51, September 4, 2014 (UTC)
It does. That's why I was taking the {{-}} tags back out. The more I stuck in the more I realized I didn't really like them after all. What about biography sections where Seasons are back to back? I kind of like separating episode references with an H4, but when you use H3s for Season separation they appear a little too close to the Season info above, giving you almost no break between the text (making it appear to almost run together. Can I still put the <br /> tag between Season listings or just remove them all? Adamantoise (talk) 23:55, September 4, 2014 (UTC)
P.S. That's only because I took out tabber for Season listings, because it makes the page more comprehensive. Or longer, at least. But I still think they should be separated. That's up to you. Adamantoise (talk) 23:57, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

Maps to the RightEdit

Hi Buffy. The only reason I aligned the Cemetery/Sheriff's Office maps to the left were to keep them within the locations section, under the header. When the Table of Contents are hidden, the pictures, forced under the infobox when aligned to the right, no longer appear to be a part of the Location section, and thence appear to be jumbled between the two sections... They only remain a part of the section as long as the Table of Contents is open, but even then, with a lack of content above, the header is shrunk down to fit beside the infobox, still making the righthand aligned picture look jumbled between sections. I though they looked okay aligned to the left. Was there a specific reason why you moved them? Adamantoise (talk) 22:21, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

I understand that... When I took Psychology I learned that almost everyone focuses their attention first to the left, and then scans to the right. That's why I've been changing the layout of images through character biography sections to the right in each section (unless there are more than one image per section, than I stagger, from right to left to right). The maps, however, I experimented with, and realized that keeping them to the left kept them more consistently laid out within the section they were meant to modify. However. I know you'll always have the final say, so whatever you say goes... :) Adamantoise (talk) 00:33, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
I understand what you are saying, but people also read from left to right, and the image there breaks up the flow of the paragraph. -shrugs- I don't know, like I said, its just being consistent with the other pages. QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 00:35, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

EpisodesEdit

I saw you updated the Strange Love page. So you'll know, I already plan on going back through all of the episodes I have updated and removing tabber and changing the layout of the Memorable Quotes section and adding columns back into the cast listings. Please don't get mad at me because I've already realized a longer page, rather than a page fit into collapsible boxes, is a more definitive and comprehensive page. I was going for looks but now I'm going for looks and better comprehensiveness. I was just going to do that after I remove the "unneeded" line breaks from all pages they are currently a part of. Sorry... Adamantoise (talk) 00:56, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

It's alright! You were only trying something new. I just want this page back to the cohesive way it was. I know you'll help where you can. :) QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 00:57, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

"uneeded external link"Edit

I noticed the link to Television Without Pity's 23-page recap of the episode was removed. Why? While I haven't been on TWoP for years, I was always partial to their recaps. They are definitive, insightful, full of background information, contain a ton of allusions, and a plethora of memorable dialogue/quotes. To cover as many pages as they do, they'd about have to be. The True Blood wiki's mission statement mentions wanting to cover everything relating to the series (which it should), but by removing a link to such comprehensive supplemental material, aren't we denying the fans the opportunity to learn or know everything? Eventually I want to feature a full transcript/walkthrough to each episode, but for now, it is so wrong to provide a link to such a lengthy analysis, especially one authored by a writer for major magazines and newspapers? Adamantoise (talk) 18:28, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

I've never linked external sites from pages, just for the sake of linking them. Usually they are reference pertaining to news or something. I mean, we block people for that very thing, "spamming to external sites". I don't know, I'm on the fence about it. They aren't really a "sister site" or an affiliate of ours. QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 18:31, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
I'm certainly not trying to spam anything. And I certainly didn't link the page just for the sake of linking it... The recaps are just top-notch. I thought they would bring another level of completeness to the article. But I'll be happy to remove them... I certainly hope you wouldn't think about blocking me just for trying to ensure that the pages were covered completely. Like I said, they just provide an alternate level of completeness by the inclusion of insightful background information and allusions not normally caught. But I'll be happy to remove them... Adamantoise (talk) 18:54, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
Well, we want to do our best and have editor's remain here, and want to edit here, rather than going to an external site for their information. If that makes sense. QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 19:33, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
It does. Really, I'd like to incorporate all of the uncaught allusions, more memorable quotes/dialogue, etc., from the recaps, into the articles here. Really, I don't even like including references on pages, as long as the info is factual, because, personally (and I guess, like you), I would rather the site be fully contained, without the need for external information. I'll remove them when I remove tabber. What do you think about the possibility of complete episode transcriptions, perhaps in the form of pictorial walkthroughs? Adamantoise (talk) 20:08, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

When you get time, just put the info from that page onto ours :) And do you mean recap like this? GoT Recap? I certainly don't have a problem with that. QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 20:13, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

Nice example. Yeah, pretty much something like that. I know the episodes have a pretty detailed recap as they are, but I was thinking of maybe including a transcription, also. Kind of like the entire script of the episode, typed up, organized by section, and accompanied by both scene recap summation as well as plenty of pictures. I don't know. Maybe a thought for something we can work on later down the road? :) Adamantoise (talk) 20:34, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
I noticed The Vampire Diaries have transcriptions. Perhaps we can add transcripts like this, but incorporate recaps like the ones on Game of Thrones with a whole lot of pictures. Maybe a thought for later down the road? Adamantoise (talk) 13:53, September 9, 2014 (UTC)

Looks like a big undertaking, but definitely doable if one day you want to make it happen. :) QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 15:47, September 9, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the support! It's definitely a big undertaking, but hopefully as you've seen from what I've already done as part of my alphabetical swipe of the wiki, I'm more than up for the job! I just needed your approval first!  :) I want to do transcripts, recaps, and a pictorial walkthrough all in one, for each episode. (I have done a detailed analysis of the movie I told you about, Nightmare on the 13th Floor, which is basically 100 printed pages devoted to 85 minutes worth of movie. Transcript, recap, analysis and pictorial walkthrough all in one.) I'll work on a sample of "Strange Love"... I think you'll like it when I'm done. We can maybe have small infoboxes incorporated as characters are introduced, interwiki links to article pages and so much more! It would definitely provide a new level of comprehensiveness and giving a True Blood experience that you won't find anywhere else! And I hope you understand, I really don't like External Links. I've always thought the site itself should be fully sustained and self contained. I want people to receive the most complete True Blood experience ever, without having to go anywhere else, because they have everything they could ever possibly want to know, or need to know, about the series right here. You're right. They did need to go, but I'll definitely work on incorporating all of the background material and allusions. I'm working on reformatting the series' finale chat transcription from the chat we all had the other night. I also have a few episodes I have to remove breaks and tabber from. And then I still have a few other pages I need to modify. But I'll be working on the transcript in the meantime~! Adamantoise (talk) 23:29, September 9, 2014 (UTC)

Transcripts, Companion Websites and Templates, oh my!Edit

Hey Buffy! Wanted to discuss a few things with you...

Transcripts - As you have probably noticed, I am finally finished with the Strange Love Transcript. I'm not going to do mini character infoboxes just yet. I'll put that idea in the back of my mind. I thought about using the {{CharPortalAAA}} template but just wasn't sure if that's the look I was going for. I just added the characters involved in each scene in two columns, in order of their appearance. It looks pretty good that way, I think. I eventually want to add more screenshots, and the scene synopses come from the episode synopsis section. What do you think about the page, though? Visually, I know it is somewhat lackluster, but definitely has potential, and any ideas you can think of to improve the look of the page would be much appreciated. And if you really don't mind me working on them, I would love to add transcripts for every episode, as well.
_______________________________________
Companion Websites - All good things eventually come to an end. It may not be for a year, it may not be for 10, but having worked on custom websites for almost 15 years, I have seen MANY good websites come to an end - especially when it comes to television or video game companion websites after the television show is long off the air and the video game is nothing more than a memory. For True Blood, HBO has created several companion websites that have served alongside the show for years, providing bonus content that helped to supplement the main content within the show. But I know eventually they will go away, and all pictures, videos, and blog posts will be deleted, banished to the realm of internet limbo. I have most all (and can get the rest hopefully fairy easy) of the content off of all of the sites, and would love to incorporate all of the content within the wiki. Perhaps under the Category:Websites? One example is babyvamp-jessica.com (whose page name could be the same). We could make tables that organize all of the blog posts in sortable or selectable menu boxes. We can arrange them by month, and when a month is selected, all of the blog posts (exact wording, all pictures and videos) would be displayed, separated by H2 headers, and directly under a special licensing template (similar to the one I made for the transcriptions). Other sites, like welcometobontemps.com could have a page linking to all other pages (similar to standard site structure) where the site's content could be preserved.

This is more for archival, preservation, and reference purposes. I truly think the content should be added before it is no longer available. What do you think?
_______________________________________
Templates - The simpliest of today's concerns... A fix you'll probably just say take care of. I've corrected minor tweaks on some of the templates, and thought about fixing the appearances ones too, but figured I'd ask you first. Here's the problem. The Appearances tables are awesome, but when the three longest episode titles in the Season 5 Appearances tables are illuminated, the columns are too small, and the text forces it to be broken up onto two lines, giving you either a 4- or 6-line table, when all other seasons, when bolded, still remain a 3-line table. It's a simple fix. Just expand the box to the width of the main text field then take the pixel difference and divide it equally among the three columns. It would just have to be done on all seven appearances tables in order to ensure uniformity and consistency. What's your take on this one? You want me to just widen the tables? This would, aesthetically, give the Season 5 table a much more cohesive look when juxtaposed against the six other tables...

Thanks again! Adamantoise (talk) 03:33, September 11, 2014 (UTC)

Templates are fixed. They were set to 90%. I initially changed season 5 to 100 but it seemed a little too big (even though it was now the same size as the header and the categories box) so I shrunk it down to 95%. There isn't much cellpadding to the left or right of the text, but all three of the longest titles can now illuminate without stretching the table height! It does make the section a little more uniform! Thanks!  :) Adamantoise (talk) 04:22, September 11, 2014 (UTC)

Multiple PostsEdit

Um, lol, did you mean to post the same message about infoboxes (templates) 6 times? I assume you didn't. I went on and was like "whoa". They're dated differently, that's the strange thing! I think the wiki's acting up. The Post comment and reply buttons on the Sookie wiki aren't working. They might be updating the software or something. General server maintenance... something.

Now I know it is. Tried to post the above and got a message saying the site was having technical difficulties. Luckily I was able to press back and come right back here, where I typed this, and am then planning on copying the text, just in case it still doesn't go through, so that I may paste it back here when the difficulties go away. Adamantoise (talk) 04:02, September 11, 2014 (UTC)

Lol, mine did too! Guess it went through even though it kept saying it couldn't do it. Gotta love technology! Adamantoise (talk) 04:07, September 11, 2014 (UTC)

QueenBuffy,I respect you as an administrator,you have the right to not consider Willa and other vampires like Jessica,James,....as villains and to delete it if I mark them like that, if you think it's unrightful.I don't wanna go up against the rules of this Wiki.But,if you don't mind I should like to talk about that and ask you some questions that I don't fully understand.Since when is defending,and even become part of a species of serial killers(because that's what vampires are,even the"likeable"ones)who set innocent humans(and faeries)on their menu card not considered as villainous and since when is that not a threat to humans(and fearies)?And since when is someone who puts her own( ex) father (who loves her very much) a knife in his back because he only wants to protect the humans from being eaten considered as a good person? And other persons who are also considered as"good guys" like Hoyt,Holly,Ginger,Eric,Tara,Pam,Bill...are actually marked as antagonists so shouldn't you correct that too? Sorry I don't want to offend you but it's just a question.

VandalismEdit

Sorry about that. I really do hate blocking people unless I know they are absolutely going to be a problem. The last guy I blocked added a bunch of gibberish to the Roman Master page and then signed it "hacked by". I locked the page to prevent recreation. I figured anyone who would type "hacked by" needed to go... I should have realized that the last case of vandalism was from someone who was only here to cause problems... I don't know if you read the page history, but he changed the h3 header "Season 7" to read "PENIS". Yeah I guess that was an obvious sign that he needed to be blocked. I apologize I didn't take affirmative action. From now on I won't let that happen again. Please forgive me. Adamantoise (talk) 21:55, September 15, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, we have zero tolerance here. If you see anything like that, it is obvious they are blatantly vandalizing, and should be blocked immediately. Thanks. QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 02:21, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

AffiliateEdit

Could we please affiliate with my Pretty Little Liars wiki? I am working hard to rebuild it and affiliations would help get users. w:c:prettylittleliars Tysonjackson (talk) 21:12, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

Sure! I'd say if they are at least over 300 pages, we should add them. We need to be somewhat discriminatory, but I think they would fit. QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 22:38, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

AffiliationEdit

Hello, I was wondering if you wanted to be affiliated with the Reign wikis? --~ Lorisa! (talk) 06:43, October 8, 2014 (UTC)

    • Dude, you have such great taste is shows!
      • ALSO! where it reads Affiliation it you've made it a dark red. How did you do that??

For the Reign wikis--~ Lorisa! (talk) 23:53, October 8, 2014 (UTC)


Yeah, How did you do that? -->

Timeline Chronology and Series ContinuityEdit

Hi, Buffy! I know most of the Season 7 related pages were updated to say Thanksgiving Dinner 2014. A user changed one page to 2015, giving his reasoning, and it got me thinking who was right. I think the dinner did occur in 2015. Please read this page below and give me your thoughts on it. If you agree, I'll update all occurrences to reflect the new date.
