I was recently looking through things I can help with in Project: Clean-Up and one of them was managing categories better. You said that if someone was to do the job well they would have to be admin so I was wondering if I could have admin to help with this job. Thanks if you don't want to give me admin thats fine I'll help with something else and if you do give me admin when I'm done you can then take my admin privileges away. Thx. I sent the same message to Samaru and Lukas in case you weren't on.
So... its been a while since I was looking around here and I can't seem to find that big, interactive map of Deltora. I even bookmarked it. However, when I click on the link all I get is an error page. Did it get taken down? It was really useful.
Obviously I am not Belt of Deltora but I thought I would answer this question for you as Belt isn't a regular contributor at the moment, and I'm another admin here. FANDOM removed the map feature in the middle of 2017 as they believed that it wasn't being utilised by enough wiki's, thus the reason our wiki no longer has it. I agree with you that it was a useful thing and it really looked good. It's a real shame.
Just noticed your recent edit. I know that Doom was not of the Dread Gnome tribe, but I was following the example of Ranesh who is not of the Tora tribe but resided for a time at Where Waters Meet. Even though he lived a good amount of life in Del and despised Tora, his infobox represents his heritage. I also thought it was safe to change it as the picture clearly indicates he is not a gnome (plus all gnomes live on Dread Mountain and neglect the rest of their territory) and not at Kinrest. Also the infobox indicates he is of an unknown tribe anyway. If the colour were to represent the tribe, then logic would mean that all the towns such as Shadowgate, D'Or, etc. would need to be made into something else. I've left it as it is for now. You should really join the discord as it is now where Lukas, Samaru, Dream and I discuss these things and vote on changes before making any changes whatsoever.
I figured it out by myself by reading the help page about a minor edit. So ignore my questoin. I do have another thing though. The link to the Deltora Book of Monsters in the menu seems to be refering to a deleted page. Maybe you could look into this?
Another question. Could it be useful to have a 'status' parameter for the character infobox? On wikis I always find it quite convenient to immediately see whether a character is 'Alive' or not. I would not mind to add this information to the Deltora Series characters once the parameter has been created even though it would be a bit of work. Let me know what you think.
Could you please help with the relatives section on Thaegan's page. I started with the familytree template but it is a bit of a mess now since I do not really know how the template works. It is also a bit of a problem to get all of Thaegan's children in the family tree.
Yeah it is a bit confusing. I looked at Lief's relatives and used that as template but I do not know the symbol that connects to horizontal lines and has a line attached to it point downwards. This probably makes no sense. I thought it was the 'T' which seemed logical but that was not the case. Thanks for your help.
I saw that you've immediately jumped onto the idea of merging the riddle pages I made into one. I don't know if we really need to do that. We already have each of the pages under the appropriate catagories, and other such pages, like the horses and several minor characters who only appear for one page in the series (such as the Toran decoys) get their own pages despite their limited information.
The difference between the riddle pages and minor characters/animal pages is that it still makes sense if the riddle pages were to be combined into an page, while it wouldn't to have a minor characters/animals page. Hopefully that makes sense.
It's not too big of an issue however, so I think it's fine to leave them how it is. I do appreciate the quality of them though!
I was wondering about the categories 'Articles in need improvement' and 'Articles in need of citations'. There are also templates for when an article is in need of 'citations' or 'improvement'. These templates will appear at the top of the article to indicate that this is something that should be worked on. Could it be an idea to automatically generate these templates at the top of the article when the category 'Articles in need of citations' or 'improvement' is added. Maybe this is just a stupid question but I thought it could be worthwhile. Hope to hear from you soon.
Hi there! It actually works the opposite. The category is added when the template is added. Currently, there is no way to implement automatic templates when a category is added. However, I'll look into it.
Some of your edits did make sense grammatically, used present tense or the previous version was more concise. Looking at it again, I've restored some of your edits again. Hope this helps! Sorry for any confusion!
Hey, I would like to help adding information to this wiki but I am new to wikis and such. At the moment I am reading the books. I have read 4 (Forest of silence, lake of tears, city of rats and the shifting sands) so far and currently I am reading Dread mountain. For now I plan to only read the first series (Deltora quest 1), I have also seen the anime for the first series (the episodes with english dub). I love to write stuff and maybe I could help you guys with this Wiki? It is not that I want to add lots of stuff but maybe I could write some information for some pages that need information? Btw good job on the wiki so far!
