Hi Audrey, I take a look at the last updates of the main characters...
Their infoboxes... sections friends and enemies...
It's difficult to say that someone is a friend or enemy because relationships quickly change from an episode to another (and sometimes in the same episode)...
Just for examples :
The premise of the series was the rivalry between Fallon and Cristal but their relation changed to become more friendly before her death.
Claudia was clearly Cristal and the Carringtons enemy. Adam is clearly the enemy of Steven and Alexis but can we say that he's not faithful to Blake?... And both of them are mentally disturbed !
Fallon had been "enemy" to nearly everyone (in and out of the family, her boyfriends/husbands...)...
Kirby was introduced as a rival for Fallon but they are now friends. Liam doesn't want to see Fallon but can we say that they are now enemies?... Fallon seems to have make peace with Jeff... She has her up and down with Monica... Cristal showed us a new face at the end of 2.15 but is she an enemy?...
That's my point of view and everybody can have his point of view in those sections...
I have the unpleasant feeling that you want to close the discussion because you are more talkative after a troll alert (which not really need an answer) than after my long speech about a thing that may improve the wiki ... and reject it without a word (oh no, sorry, three words) !... And it's not the first time you act like that... There's no way I'd do it again !!... Bye.
Friends and enemies section just needs to be updated more frequently. So I wasn't dismissing you. Just telling you that I did think they were necessary. When have I acted dismissive to you? I think you need to take a step back and not lash out at me.
So I was doing some digging, and I came across this article about Maddison Brown. It looks like Kirby has promotional stills? The article cites "Dynasty" for photo credit, which is why I'm pretty sure these aren't just for something unrelated.
Couldn't find any for Alexis and Cristal 2.0, though there's definitely more stills from Nicollette's first photoshoot back in November 2017. She once posted a LQ one to her Instagram (pretty sure it's actually on the wiki).
Anyways, yeah, wanted to bring that to your attention. Didn't just wanna upload it myself in case there was an issue!
Whoa. They really should do a better job as marketing this so people like us who manage this wikia can find these things. Does it say the date on it by any chance? I don't see it on my end? But yeah, just go ahead and add it.
The article came out on October 22. I can't believe these pictures never made it to SpoilerTV or anything. The marketing really is atrocious this season, and it's frustrating because this confirms that there is promotional material that they're just not releasing to the public. I'm willing to bet that Cristal 2.0 has unreleased stills since they'd be needed to photoshop the Season 2 poster.
^^^ Me too! Like we found the Netflix poster by pure chance. Audrey, one of the other admins basically did a google search and that's how we got it. I tried applying (1 in a million shot) to get promotional content for the show through the CW as like a special reporter of sorts, but of course was denied. I even showed then the wikia via link. But knew going into that the chances were slim.
Hello, we regret to inform you that we’ve decided against it. We find that the subject matter between Dynasty and Manifest is simply too different and we would rather not be associated with that show in particular as we aren’t really fans of it. Hope you understand, it’s nothing personal! :)
Hey there! My name is Chen, I'm with the Community team at FANDOM.
Over the last year, we’ve been working on a brand new TV Community Builder. We’ve identified your wiki as one of the best candidates to move to the new platform because it already has a great structure for characters, cast, seasons and episodes. We designed the TV Community Builder from the start with TV shows in mind to mirror that same structure.
While the new Builder is still early in its life, we would be thrilled to have you as a key test community to help us learn what works, what doesn’t, and what feedback we need to know moving forward! Would you be interested in giving some feedback and participating in helping figure out what features we should create for the TV Community Builder?
Here are some of the reasons we’re excited about the new experience:
Mobile capabilities: This new builder is designed to work across all devices - making it easy to create and view pages on desktops and phones with no extra work required from editors. Over the years, more and more people are switching to browsing the internet on their phones and FANDOM is no different. We are invested in making it a better experience and allow fans to edit as easily from their phones as their desktops.
Structured data: Structured data is a way of organizing all of the data on a website so you can present information in more powerful ways. Not only can you display content in ways that helps people find what pages they should read next, but it can even make editing easier - imagine if you could update a single character page, and that data would be added to all other relevant pages automatically. By removing the reliance on wikitext, editing becomes a simpler experience and content becomes easier to find.
You can see this new platform in action on Making It wiki right now - please check it out!
If your wiki uses the new Community Builder, what we would do is migrate all of the articles here over to a new domain and temporarily maintain both while we go through and clean up some of the information. It won’t all be perfect so there will be some work to do to get everything set on the TV Community Builder before we switch over the domain. We are happy to help with a lot of the heavy lifting there.
We’d love to do this in the next week to make sure this wiki is ready for Season 2.
Thanks for the quick response! I'm happy you would love to help! I just want to be clear that after the migration, this wiki will start using the new format (TV Builder) moving forward. We are still in a early stage of this layout, but we will keep evolving it with the feedback we collect from our admins and users. Your suggestions and feedback will help us direct the way where we want to head to for the improvement of TV builder. So for sure!
Would you like us to start the migration next week? Thank you.
Do we have any admin powers? If so, then yes, next week works great. Also, one of my fellow admins was wondering if one thing u guys can consider is the wiki background. But all in all, we are excited to help test out!
That's awesome! We will start the migration soon if everything looks good to you and other admins! There may be some pages need extra attention during the migration process, and I will keep you updated. Basically we are going to use a new URL for migration while keeping the old one, and you can compare both communities to make sure all content are well-transferred. Once that is done, we will change the URL as the final step.
Back to your question 1 - yes, you will continue having the admin power. For now, you can only manage the community and reorder the pages. There is no permissions yet but we plan to work on that very soon. We are thinking to let admins have the ability to delete pages, manage community (including page types) and block users for the next step.
About your question 2 - we are using a standard design for the current layout. We will likely start from basic theming (dark/light background switch) some time soon. We would also like to know what kind of customization you are hoping to do specifically. Background image? Word-mark? Or others? That would help us to plan what specific theming customizations to be added to this product to meet our users' needs.
This is still an early stage for this new tool and many parts may not be perfect. But we are hoping to let our users easily edit and contribution content via a simple, non-mediawiki tool with a modern design. To achieve our goal, we would like to continue talking to you and gathering feedback/suggestions after the migration. We really appreciate you can be part of this experience and help us make the product better and better! :)
Yeah, just in case, having the power to block or delete pages would come in handy ASAP. As for customization, yes to all the above (i.e. background image, word-mark, etc.). But yes sounds perfect! I look forward to it.
I twisted some words and linked the message wall to Community Central. Another suggestion is you can use Discussions for conversations too. We will develop more tools by the end of this year, like admin rights, etc.
Just checked with our team and the migration will be done tomorrow! Please notice that some pages may not be 100% perfect and may need some manual migration work. Our team has been doing as best as we can. But please feel free to jump in and adjust the pages if necessary. If you have any questions about any page or you don't know how to adjust them, please let me know! Thank you!
Hello Selena... I don't understand the reversed edits on this page... This is an episode page and I deleted the counting appearance after the cast member/character name to respect the layout of the other episode pages... The counting is on the season pages, not on the episode pages.
Basically, the reason to include the numbers right now is because no new episode has premiered. So it's just easier to show how many episodes there are in the cast section. In case people are just quickly reading through the page. Does that make sense?
