  • Hey there, I'm Mish.  I was the old admin of this wiki from 2011-2012.  I don't quite remember, but I think w/ me getting a new computer and email address, I forgot about this wiki...it's now February Break for me, and I decided to take a trip down memory lane.  Imagine how exciting it was to see this revamped website!  Wow!  I'm incredibly impressed w/ your admin work, kudos to you!  For now, I'm just reveling in all the cool changes, but if you need an extra hand, I might be able to break out my SG books and do some editing.  I must be terribly rusty, though...

    • Oh hi! Welcome back to the wiki!

      Haha, thank you for the kind words - you are absolutely more than welcome to lend an extra hand (we need it so badly considering the rewrite is coming up :)

  • I want to create a new page for the Council of Mirrors, aka, that group of magic mirrors that play a big role in the last book. The only problem is, of course, that there's already a page for The Council of Mirrors (the book). So should I name the new page The Council of Mirrors (characters), or The Council of Mirrors (group of characters), or something like that? Or should I be sneaky and call it Council of Mirrors without the "The?" 

    Basically, I want to know if there's a preferred format for this kind of thing. If it doesn't matter to you, I can figure out a manageable way on my own.

    • Oh I see what you mean - I think The Council of Mirrors (group of characters) and The Council of Mirrors (characters) is too long to be used as a title. Go for the Council of Mirrors and then we can add a {{Similar}} template to both the book page and the actual council page, so they mention one another on their repsective pages. We can also them nake a disambiguation page for the two so there is a 'base' page that lists the two together. I'll make an example of The Everafter War and the Everafter War so you can see what I mean :) If it causes too much confusion that way, I can always rename the page later :)

    • Okay, I'll do that. I don't think it'll cause much confusion--people are probably more likely to search for the book anyway.

  • Sorry to come out of nowhere like this, but I clicked through to this wiki through its Spotlight and I just want to say that the way you customised this wiki's Navbar is bloody amazing! It is easily the best Navbar customisation job I have seen around Wikia, and I just thought you should know how good it is. Mind if I take a little inspiration from your code there in future? :)

    • Oh hi!

      Aww, thank you, thank you so much :) You are absolutely more than welcome to take whatever inspiration you need from the CSS codes - do you need a link or something?

      Thanks again :)

  • So as you are the admin here... I shall ask you :P

    I noticed the character templates have a category 'Aliases'. My question is, what counts as an ailas? Is it a name used consistently, like a nickname that stuck (for example, 'Old Lady' from Puck), or is it anytime a character is referred to be a name other than their own?

    Thanks!

      Loading editor
    • Ah hello!

      Firstly, welcome to the wiki and thanks for editing :)

      It's both really - primarily a nickname that has stuck like 'Old Lady' but if you have instances where they are called something once, then you would reference the book where it was mentioned next to the name so it's evident it's just a one off thing.

      Does that make sense? :s

  • Hi there!

    I came across your wiki- and wow, you've done such an incredible job! My name is Ariana- I'm on the staff over here at Wikia and I work on a lot of the book wikis (primarily at the Books Hub). If you ever need help or want something in particular promoted, let me know and maybe I can help!

    Have a good week :) Asnow89 @@Wikia (profile)•(talk) 00:23, December 3, 2014 (UTC)

    • OK I created a template for the character portal here and put it on the main page-- this should let you change anything you want without messing it up! Let me know if there are more problems :D

  • So there's a lot of cool fan art for this series, especially on deviantART. Edessa runs a group page for it all, and I was wondering what you thought about creating a space on here for it? I know there's a space for fanfiction (though I haven't been through it), so maybe we should make one for fanart. What do you think?

    Edessa, if you see this, I'd like to hear your thoughts as well, since you have so much to do with the group on dA :)

    • Yep. 200 days and I won't even get a badge until I complete a full year - a badge which I should have got last July and then the bug happened :(

  • I noticed there are a lot of book illustrations and chapter headers uploaded, but only for the first three or so books. I'm curious--where did you get them? I'd like to upload more books' illustrations if I can, but I want to know whether I should scan them or whether there's another source where you got all the good-looking images that are up so far.

    • YOU CAN RENAME PICTURES? Tell me how to do this, because lots of the ones I uploaded have stupid unsearchable titles because I wasn't paying attention.

    • I'm not sure if it's a function available to everyone, but if you click the down button beside the red edit one beside the title of the page, it should have a list of other options - rename should be one. If you can't find it then it might just be something that admins have - if so, let me know which ones you want me to rename and want you want me to rename them to :)

  • I just came back from seven months without Internet, and I checked back on this wiki and it seems so... silent...

    Are you, the admin, at least still alive?

    Or have you been zombified like the rest of them....

      Loading editor
    • Haha - I'm still alive :) Though not active yet - I've just started college and I'm getting used to the workload which leaves no time for any life outside of studying.

      Blanket assurance though - I do check up on this wiki everyday and I am genuinely trying to manage my workload so I can build up this wiki and the other two that I've let fall aside. (I'm failing at trying but.) There is absolutely no way I'm going to let this wiki be shoved under my studies and I will start editing with a maniacal vengeance as soon as the college allows me to breathe without talking about deadlines.

      But I'll be back really soon.... I'll not let college zombify me :D

      And thanks for calling my attention back here - I thought no one would notice if I left it for a bit since it's a veritable ghost town on here. But evidently, I was wrong and there have been many awesome people editing whilst I've been a bad admin.

      I apologise, fellow fans.

      Keep being pucktastic.

    • Heh, I know what you mean about college sucking time away. I'm supposed to be working on an essay right now. But who cares, Sisters Grimm is waaay more important, right?

  • Hi! I'm a huge fan of the Shades of London series, and I'm new to editing Wiki pages, though I frequently read/visit them. I was sad to see how bare the wiki is, so I'm looking to help with editing the pages - supplying more information on anything, really. 

    Like I said, I'm new to this. I've briefly worked with HTML and know a very little bit about it. I'm very good with written but have the artistic ability of a lamppost. So, what can I do?

    • HI!

      Firstly, I'm soooo glad there is someone else on the wiki becuase it's a veritable ghost town that I've been posting on whenever I have the chance. So I'm so glad that there is someone else who can edit on the wiki! I literally threw my hands in the air and killed my friend with my happiness :)

      I'm not a dictator about the wiki - if you have anything to add to any of the pages, feel free :) Honestly, everything needs to be edited on the wiki - I'm gonna rejig the homepage a bit so it's more fluid. If you want direction with what you want to edit then, since you're good with written, perhaps you could start on the character profiles or with the plot-line for the two books? I want to add more people to the character boxes at the front because it's currently an odd number and it's killing me :3

      Thanks again!!

      P.S - If you get this twice, that's 'cause I've posted it on your Sisters Grimm Wiki Message Wall and Shades of London Message Wall - not becuase I'm overeager or anything :S
