  • Hello Rey,

    First of all, How are you doing? I know we haven't talked to each other very often but I would like to invite you to the new discord server. It is a very convenient way to discuss matters. Currently, Lukas, Archer and I are using it but it would be better if all admins joined. Of course I do not want to force you to join or anything :) It is your decision to join or not after all. Let me know what you think!

    Greetings,

    Creative Dream

  • Hello, I am still new to the wiki and have written the content for 'The Lake of Tears (location)' and some other articles. At this point I am confused about the tense that should be used when writing articles. I checked the manual of style but is a bit contradicting. So what tense should be used when writing 'in-universe' articles, I have used past-tense now but I do not know if this is right?

      Loading editor
    • Past tense is correct for locations, people, organizations, or creatures that do not exist anymore or have died in-universe, so you are correct in your use of past tense for something like the Lake of Tears. Present tense is used for book and episode summaries and characters, creatures, and locations that are still alive or still exist.

      I hope I explained it well enough for you. If you have any more questions feel free to contact me or any other admins. Thank you for editing and keep up the good work!

    • Thanks for your explanation. What about the history of creatures like Ols and Grey Guards?

        Loading editor
    • Hi there! All history sections are to be written in past tense, as they are describing events that have already happened. Thanks for the questions!

        Loading editor
    • Thanks then I have been doing it right so far!

  • Rey!

    Thank you.

    Thank you so much for all your work in categorising all the images on the wiki! I've been wanting to do that for a few years now, and it's finally happened. They've come a long way since I deleted around 500 a few years ago!

    Hope you're well,

    Ben

    • Thanks Ben! 

      Once all the images are categorized, I think we should go through and delete duplicates and low-quality images for brevity and clarity. And once I'm done with that project, I'll be free to rewrite the gems pages and work on book plots. 

        Loading editor
    • Yes that sounds good Rey! The duplicates can be linked to the one image too. I'll be happy to help with this.

  • Hello Rey. I was wondering about something. Do you ever edit pages offline, so that you don't lose your bigger edits in a browser crash?

      Loading editor
    • No, I don't usually. Why do you ask?

      P. S. Sorry for being rather inactive! I'll probably get back to editing in my usual way sometime in August.

        Loading editor
    • Nice, glad to hear that! I'd like to talk to you more in-depth about some things on the wiki though. Where would that be possible? Tumblr?

      Also, the reason I ask is I am afraid of losing edits I am working on...

  • On Lief's history remember to add some info about Lief's fight with Neridah and his defeat. Perhaps talk about Barda and Jasmine's first fights too. Or do you already plan to add this in?

      Loading editor
    • Yeah, I planned to add that. I was editing in roughly 3-paragraph sections, and hadn't got to that part yet. Hopefully I can finish Lief's history in The Shifting Sands in the next couple days.

    • You're incredible Rey!

      Like what Ben said above, you truly are incredible Rey. We could never had gotten the wiki to this state without your help. You're like ten or more editors in one person.

    • Thanks, guys! I really do enjoy putting my knowledge and hard work into this wiki.

  • Hi Rey, could you begin to do some major work on Lief's history now (meaning soon, not at this second, but perhaps as your next big series of edits?), cleaning it up and expanding on it, including continuing from the point in the story where I left off, which is somewhere in The Shifting Sands.

  • Hey Rey!

    The license templates we use are split into three categories, images that have been scanned, images of covers, and images from the anime. These templates explain the justification of the images under fair use, etc.

    I added some code that automatically adds those with the 'cover' license template to be added to the category you created, 'Book covers'. I'll do the rest for the same! Eventually, whenever an image is uploaded, you just select which book it's from and what type of image and it'll be categorised automatically!

    I initially started doing this last year, and if you go to the 'Anime images' category, you'll find all the images we have from the anime!

    Can't wait to sort through the rest with you and the others :)

    PS: Nice tumblr! Got to say you crack me up :P

    • Ok. Thanks! Do images that are just part of a cover (like Swamplands.png) need to go in the 'Book covers' category?

        Loading editor
    • All good! The 'cover' license template was added to it by mistake I think, hence it went into that category. I'll remove it now, though I'm going to re-do the lisence templates first so we can easily categorise them all!

        Loading editor
    • If certain images appear in multiple books (like the Shadow Lord's brand or the Resistance symbol), should I put those images in all those book categories, put them only in the category of the first book in which they appear, or not specify which book and just leave it in the series category? 

        Loading editor
    • Hmm. I think it'd make sense if the exact same image appears in multiple books, to include it all of the book cateogories it appears in.

  • Hi Rey!

    I was just about to talk with you on the chat about the image categories - which are great by the way, but you left at the same time I began typing!

    Great edits recently also, I always love seeing how you so drastacally improve an article! :)

    Ben

    • Oops! I joined the chat and saw no one was there, but I'll get back on in a second. And thanks! (I'm guessing that was in reference to the Broome article?) I love adding loads of information to articles when I get the time.

    • You're welcome. Broome, among others. Predominately most of your edits actually!

  • I saw your tumblr, when I was surfing the net looking for mbti personality types of DQ characters. I've gotten into mbti over the past few weeks and just started typing DQ characters after finding nothing on the internet about them. I was very happy to find your tumblr! :) I don't use tumblr but if you want we could maybe type DQ characters together?

    Also glad to see someone else ships Britta/Sky together. :D I was thinking I was the only one! Most of the other writers I talk to on fanfiction.net seem to ship Britta/Jantsy. :/

    Also congrats on becoming an admin! :)

    • I'm still waiting to get my copy of Illica, so I'm afraid I can't help you there. However, I have been leaning towards some kind of NT typing for Sky, or possibly an STP. But I still have no idea for him or Britta. 

      And I would count SoD as a different series from DQ because it doesn't feature the same characters. 

      Hopefully I'll get Illica soon and I can begin my typings of the Star characters. I'll let you know when I've read it and come to some conclusions. :)

        Loading editor
    • I'm 100% certain that Sky is not an STP. Everything he does in Illica practically screams Fi to me. You might see what I mean when you read the book. :)

      I can't remember if I've already posted this but here are the typings I've come up with for the SoD characters:

      Britta: ESFJ or INTP (can't decide where her Fe is in her functional stack. I'm leaning more toward INTP now, to be honest.)

      Jewel: ESTP

      Sky: ENTJ or INTJ (can't decide where his Fi is in his functional stack. He's probably ENTJ though.) 

      Mab: ESTJ

      Vashti: ENFJ or ESFJ (probably ESFJ) 

      Dare Larsett: ENFJ or ESTP or INFJ or ENTP (probably not INFJ. ENTP maybe? It's hard to tell at the moment. Is Dare's longing to get rich and see all the wonders in the old tales a sign of Se or Ne? There's also something in Illica which makes me think that Dare may have Ne somewhere in his functional stack. I won't say what because of spoilers :). He definitely has Ti and Fe, though.)            

      Margareth: ESFJ

      Maarie: ISFJ (this one was easy for me to type. Maarie is very judgemental and obsessed with appearing respectable, and becoming ostracised by her own people seemed to hit her hard (Fe). She hasn't gotten over Dare's betrayal/disappearance even eight years after it happened, which shows that she has a hard time letting go of things (Si).)

      Zoolah: ESFJ or ISFJ (probably a very unhealthy ISFJ. The explanation I gave for Maarie applies here, too.)
