  • I want to create a category for all the characters of color. How do I do that?

    • Hello. Just FYI, next time, you don't have to create a new thread whenever you'd like to reply to a user. Please just reply to the thread where they first reached out to you; in our case, here (linking here for future reference).

      The category was deleted when you first made them for three reasons:

      1. The format / capitalization was wrong: on this wiki, categories and headings are not capitalized like titles (note the categories are formatted like "Male characters" instead of "Male Characters", among others);
      2. No admin was consulted for the creation, which would have been necessary because (aside from the fact we can't just let every user create any category they want; we've had many useless ones created in the past)...
      3. This category isn't usually a category found on other similar wikis.

      I am considering possibly keeping the category, mainly because Cassie herself has been trying to place emphasis on diversity in her books, but it would still be something I would first discuss with other admins and/or users as I'm not sure about the need for this distinction.

      The fact that it was immediately applied to around 50 articles made it worse because the activity is considered spammy — your consecutive edits flooded the wiki's activity pages, which is grounds for blocking. For this reason, edits like this are usually done with our wiki's bot.

      I'm noticing that you're also trying your hand at editing on the wiki and also tried to create a blog post. As you proceed, I'd like to point out that the wiki has certain policies you would need to take note of. An error that stands out to me at the moment: Please try to keep your edits, especially minor ones (ones that don't entail paragraphs and paragraphs of additions) under one revision. To avoid this, I advise that you not edit by section; edit the page as a whole so that each section edit won't be saved as separate revisions, then check to see that you are satisfied with your edit before you hit publish. Otherwise, the tendency for edits that take several revisions is that they will just be undone (same as above, this floods wiki activity pages).

      Thanks for understanding, and have a good day.

    • Hi. A little update. My fellow admin has consulted other wiki users and the general consensus is that this categorization can come off as offensive. I also don't really see this as a crucial or necessary addition to the wiki, so we've agreed to not make this category on the wiki.

      Thanks for your suggestion / request, and I hope you understand the decision.

  • Hey Red!

    It has been a very long time... Hope you are well, I have been absent for a long time but did visit once in a while! Sorry that I wasn't mush of the help these past YEARS, wow... So I will probably be here once in while to work on the Russian wiki. It seems to only matter to me that it exists haha (apart from wiki staff ofcourse) :) I keep reading the books and follow Cassandra Clare's work, I guess I got uninterested in Wiki stuff at one point and then just kept delaying my visits until eventually I stopped. If you need me to do anything like clean up or anything really I would gladly help.

    I realize there have been a lot of changes of course in policies and edits so I will stay away from making any mess :)

    • Hi, Kam!

      How've you been? And welcome back! That's no problem, we have our own lives. I've been on and off on the wiki, as well, but with everything going on I have time to micromanage the site again, lol.

      Good luck with the Russian wiki. And thanks! Feel free to help whenever you have the time. :D

  • Hello Red! How you doing??

    I was editing some pages in the Brazilian wiki about TLH characters, most specifically the Esme Hardcastle page. But, after I finished, I saw that there was another Esme in the time James and the gang was in the academy. Do you think they are the same person?? I'm just looking for a second opinion to merge the two pages there since we don't have a confirmation by Cassie yet.

    Have a nice day.

    PS: How are things there with this awful situation that we are going through?

    • Oh, hi! Thanks for this information, I hadn't noticed it. (TBH, I'm not done reading the book yet. But because I've been hanging around the wiki, I'm already getting spoiled massively so I've decided to put off reading the book for a while.) I'm not so sure about this, but it's definitely a possibility. Perhaps for now, until we've had confirmation, I'll keep the pages separate on this wiki but I'll add a note under Trivia.

      My family's managing pretty okay, we're fortunate to have been well-stocked just before the quarantine measures were strictly imposed. I did almost get stuck in another city because I had traveled to work on the day it was announced, so that would have been a nightmare. Our healthcare system sucks so sadly, the tests aren't accessible to the people who really need them yet, and so we're expecting numbers to rise once people are tested in larger scale. How about you? I sincerely hope you're doing well!

    • Yeah, I was thinking that too.

      Here things are... Weird. A lot of people seems to minimize the problem, mostly related to the position of the president. In my state, most specifically, the governor has already extended the quarantine and things seems to be getting a lot more serious, since there are a lot of people on the street. I've started working at home, so I was only affected in the matter of being very bored. But everything is ok for now. I'm just afraid of the consequences of people not staying at home right now.

    • Same here as well. Aside from the disease spreading further, I'm scared that tensions could rise between authorities and other people if they keep going out unnecessarily. But at the same time, I feel bad for those who have no source of livelihood now because of the situation. It's a bad time, for sure. I can't imagine just yet when or how life can go back to normal after this.

    • Yes. It's going to be tough times.

  • Hey Red,

    I had a couple ideas for the wiki I wanted to discuss with you real quick.

    The first is possibly extending the spoiler policy for Chain of Gold on the articles. I've noticed on the discussions board that a good majority of people will not be able to get their copy till next month due to the worldwide Corona pandemic closing stores and delaying shipments for quarantine. We took a vote in the discussions section for extending it there and because of the large number of people in support of that, I thought it would be worth considering doing on the wiki too. I know the policy is only 2 months after release and that sometimes the warnings get left up longer by accident anyway but I just wanted to see if we could possibly make it official for the benefit of those on the site.

    I was also thinking of maybe adding an Inventions section on Henry and Christopher's pages. It could list all their attempted inventions, those that failed and how, as well as those that succeeded and are still used. I think it would be nice to have them all listed in one place so that people can really get a sense of how their minds work and just for fun. I know it's not a part of the standard article format which is why I wanted to run it by you first.

    Thanks, CJ

    • That might be it. It's weird though because I checked a few more after I posted this and some still pop up, others don't. But I've visited those all before too. So sorry to waste your time with this lol. I should have realized that was probably why 🤦‍♀️ I was just worried it was failing and we'd get complaints of spoilers.

    • No problem! I also encountered that issue a couple of weeks back. I guess I just didn't think too much of it because it still worked on some pages.

  • Hi there,

    What is the reason that you undone the changes I made in "Mundanes"? This informations were absolutely correct! I think it's an interesting addition that some warlocks also have human fathers, not demonic ones. And the information about relationships with fairies and mundanes, and half-fairies born in this way, can be found in a similar form under "Faeries".

    Greetings Hydree

    • I'm not sure what chapter it was in. I would have to go to the city library to read it, but right now there is a major corona-crisis in Europe and the city library is closed, like most public buildings. I think that was about when Jace Clary told everything about the shadow world and what vampires, werewolves and witches are; or just before Clary's first meeting with the Seelie Queen. If you can't find it, I'll try to read it after the corona-crisis and then write it in later.

      Yes, that's fine. I removed it for now because I couldn't find it in my Amazon copy. It's possible that I'm just not looking for the right keyword, so if you find it in the future, feel free to check back.

      Take care of yourself there.

  • Greetings,

    Firstly I just wanted to say I'm very excited to edit the Shadowhunters wikia. I'm really interested in focusing on the Shadowhunter Academy. I wanted to focus specifically on the school, the classes offered, the training schedule, the dorms, etc. But the page I created for the class Demons Through the Ages was deleted and the person felt that classes offered didn't merit their own pages. What do you think? I personally feel like the known class, given it's only a handful that are mentioned, that they should receive their own pages.

      Loading editor
    • It was deleted because there is not enough information for it to require a whole page, not because they aren't worth being added. You can make a section on the Shadowhunter Academy's page titled "known courses" or something to that effect (similar to how the Shadow Market stalls are done), but an entire page just to say "they learn about demons" isn't necessary and it would likely rarely be searched for. It makes more sense to have them all in one place for people to learn about. Especially because, as you said, there's only a few that are mentioned.

  • Hey there, I'm checking in to update you with the latest UCP updates! We've lately had a barrage of updates including new profiles and message walls, as well as the new wiki creation process.

    For new profiles:

    • It will focus more on the user, rather than the stats

    Wiki creation:

    • To prevent duplicate wikis, there will be a process if it detects an overlap which a new wiki would be flagged for approval.

    You can learn more in the respective blogs which I linked above. If you have any questions, feel free to drop one on the blog or on my talk page/message wall.

  • Hey Rwtia, I had a question for you about categories on thule characters.

    I was wondering if we should give them the roles of gender and species and such or only "thule characters, queen characters, and tsc characters", like they were at first.

    And if so, I was thinking we could make thule character categories like the film has (ex "shadowhunters (thule)" and "male characters (thule)" etc) instead of the regular ones. Just because it seems a bit redundant to me to have Alec listed twice in those categories just because he has a thule version we've seen.

    I know your probably busy and everything, I just figured I'd post it here and get your opinion before I do anything. Let me know when u have a chance. Thanks

      Hey, this sounds good! :) I'll test it out with a couple of characters I'll be patrolling today. (P.S. I edited this message because I removed a previous suggest; I tested it but it doesn't seem too good lol.)

      Sorry I've been inactive. I'm just starting out at my new job and it's taking quite some adjustment.

    • That sounds good to me. So in that case "Thule Characters" should be the umbrella category and should be removed (along with "tsc characters" as u said) from the pages because itd hold all the sub-categories of "thule male" etc. or did i read that wrong?

      I think that'll work much better and I can get on that right away. It makes much more sense to me than double listing.

      And that's totally fine, no reason to apologize. People have lives lol. I hope you are enjoying the new job atleast.

  • Hey, I was wondering if we could maybe try changing the background on the wiki. The one we have right now is fine, but some 'change of scnery' would definitely be nice. I also made a post on discussions about it, maybe read that. (it makes more sense)  Thanks!

    • Hi! Thanks for the suggestion. I'll keep it in mind. Right now, our backgrounds are mainly to reflect what the latest/upcoming releases are. Maybe once a new cover is released, I'll change it up. I'll see what I can do with the new RSM cover though, I think the color matches COG2's color scheme.

      We mainly use covers or official images for backgrounds that's why it's seldom changed. But if you or other users have suggestions, feel free to tell me. Thanks again!

  • Hey there! Hope all is well. It's been a great year around Fandom with lots of updates. Will like to leave you update once more before the year ends about an update on Featured Videos if you haven't read it yet. Basically, they will be replaced by The Loop, which are vertical specific mini-shows. These will also help promote wikis within the vertical unlike the pre-exisiting featured videos.

    And if you'd like a recap of the year Fandom has had, feel free to read about it here!

    Hope you have a great New Years!
