  • I just posted this on Sabrina's page but it probably makes more sense to ask you directly: 

    So I've noticed that the main characters' image galleries (at least the ones I've just glanced at) don't include any of the cover illustrations. But there are some pages, like Jabberwocky, that do. Is there any official wiki policy one way or the other as to using colorful cover illustrations for character galleries?

    Basically what I want to do is instead of having Official Image Gallery/Chapter Headers/Fanart Gallery the way all the big galleries are split right now, I want to start changing them to Cover Images/Internal Illustrations/Chapter Headers/Fanart and I want to know if that's cool with you Ms. Admin. :)

    • Ooh, I hadn't even considered the cover illustrations. This wiki doesn't even have any policies about galleries so feel free to change them as you see fit, you have complete free reign over them :)

    • All right, I'll get on that! 

      Another thing, I know a lot of fanon wikis will put character galleries on a whole other page for space-saving reasons. I've never really considered doing it (and I'm definitely too lazy at THIS point in time) but then looking at how long some like Sabrina's are, I can see the appeal.

    • Having a separate page for galleries would be a good idea, especially with the revised editions and hopefully, HOPEFULLY a graphic novel (pleasepleasepleaseMichaelBuckley). However, I personally don't think it would be a good idea for pages which only have a few images on them i.e Atticus Charming so perhaps we should only do that for pages which have more than 10 images on them? What do you think?

  • Sorry I just made a couple really empty pages--I fully intend to come back and flesh them out, I just wanted them to exist before I go into a completely internet-less state for the next week.

  • Hello! I just wanted to ask for information about the rewrite and movie. I'm sort of new to the Sisters Grimm, so I don't really know what you lot mean when you say there's going to be a rewrite and such. Could you please explain this to me? I would be so grateful!

  • 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 :)
