Wanted to ask, since you may or may not be fixing this wiki similar to the other wiki but under your own formats and rules. If you do not mind me asking, do you believe our wiki could benefit with some additions to certain article pages?
At the moment, I want to know if there is a possibility that Character pages could be improved with a small section for relationships outside family (which is already done in the infobox). Have a small section that list all the known friends and enemies that each character may have if applicable. We do not have to write out how their relationships are for everyone, but I believe a list can help keep up with things and aid in navigating between characters.
If not, we do not have to implement this change. Any decision I will respect. Appeciate your time, Krazygirl.
Hi. I'm not sure if there are any plans for the main page. Obviously, I imagine you may want to do something that may deviate from the designs used in the other Black Lightning Wiki.
In no way am I saying I know of ways to change up the page; I'm asking if there is anything or anyway I could aid in "revamping" it while keeping a section for people that want to contribute to the wiki.
Ah. For the most part, I somewhat know a few other stuff that could be added to the main page, but nothing as fancy as other wikis. You don't have to do anything big right away. Small progressions are better than none at all.
I was definitely attempting to make a Character Portal template to add to the main page, but I don't know the templates that people use or the codes.
UPDATE (especially since you're still like the higher admin of the two of us) I've been gradually adding things to the main page and making small edits. You are welcome to tell me to stop if you want. I also somewhat created a Main Page Character Portal for the page. I just used the gallery to make it (since that's all I know how to do). You are welcome to make any necessary changes to that if you would like.
And I'm still open to anything you come up with or find out for the Main Page. It might not be as pretty as the other guys, but hey! Nobody said we had Mona Lisa our projects! You do you! :D
I took notice that you mentioned that you were searching for mods and admins for this wiki. Acknowledging that this is super early for a random stranger to request for such a position, I would like to know if there are any requirements before a consideration. I will provide edits the best of my ability and I will follow any and all rules and policies that you may have set for this wiki for consistencies and navigation.
Well, thank you for request. I was mostly looking for someone who's had admin experience before, and you have experience. All you have to do is say yes. I really do need help setting this place up and build this community.
Do you know how to promotional image as a license option when posting images? What I mean is when I want to upload promotional photos for new episodes, it doesn't give me the option to choose the Promotional Images license
I do not, but I know there has to be some way to alter templates for licenses and copyrights for images and videos uploaded. I'll look through the Marvel Cinematic Universe wiki and ask how they manage to fix their licnese, since I know they managed to make those changes.
I figured it out. It appears this wiki needed a page that lists the licenses for images. MediaWiki:Licenses. I learned something new today!
I don't think we've met. But since I just saw you're reason for tweaking my edit I made in the first episode, I was just fixing the position of the cast section cause it was wonky. Plus the word Starring did appear in the main cast bill.
Hi Krazygirl; I'm Mike from FANDOM's Community Development Team. I'm wondering if you are interested in merging this wiki with the Black Lightning Wiki? Given the relative newness of the show, it seems counterproductive to have two competing wikis on the same subject. I've sent this message to the admins over on the Black Lightning Wiki as well.
Hi, when I saw this message, I took the liberty of going over there to see what they had to say. I'm please with the fact that they're trying to paint me as a bad guy. I want to clear something up.
I did NOT create this wiki out of retaliation for not receiving admin rights on the Black Lightning Wiki. I created this wiki before I discovered the other wiki. Once I discovered theirs, I complerely abandoned this one. I did this a long time ago with the Disney Channel show Jessie. I created wiki, but I discovered someone already created one. I abandoned that one to start working on the other wiki. It was called Jessie (tv series) wiki and I believe it is deleted now. It's the same with Black Lightning. Now I will admit, I did try to message someone at Community to try and give me admins right there and delete this wiki. However, that was because I beleived that the admins completely abandoned the wiki.
When I first got there, the character, Jennifer Pierce, page was already created. I decided to go from ther and create the other character pages, actor pages, Season 1 page, and Black Lightning. I came there and helped contributed, so they could have that wiki up and running at. They claim that I didn't follow the format of the Arrowverse wiki, and they repeatedly told me to do so. This is not true at all. My first time there making pages, I saw them on wiki activity visiting and editing pages, which means they saw my work. Not once did they stop by to tell me what format to use. Even when I messaged the admin TimeShade on the wiki o let him know the first design of the wiki didn't really work, he didn't tell me anything about their policy and how they wanted things to go. Yes, he did tell me that they wantd things to be consistent with the Arrowverse wiki, but how is anyone suppose to know that means follow the Arrowverse wiki policy? Reminding you that they sw that n pages were being created and failed to inform me of the Arrowverse policy. So I kept creating and editing, until I came back after being gone for 3 days to see that they deleted my work. They didn't even message me to tell me that they were going to delete the pages. They jus decided to do that without informing me, so I could understand. I got upset, so I decided to let them know. But I calmed down and decided to do things the Arrowverse wiki way, since that's what they wanted. I created a character page again in the format of an Arrowverse character, and that got deleted too. Again, no message to inform me beforehand. How are we suppose to follow the Arrowverse wiki rules when they don't bother to tell us what they are or to do so when we first came?
So, I left there and saw this wiki was still here. I decided to do something and I just started creating.
I'm sorry for the long message, but I wanted to clear things up. I'm not a bad person, and I don't like how they're trying to portray me as that. Again, I did not create this wiki out of retaliation. I would never do that as I'm not that kind of person. You can go there and read my talk page http://blacklightning.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:Krazygirl. Read the messages and read the messages on theirs as well.
As you can tell from this long message, that me and the admins over there don't have a good relationship. So, I'm not merging my wiki with theirs as I don't want to be forced to work with them. Also, it would be unfair to wiki users here who have came and contributed. If Black Lightning does become apart of the Arrowverse, I will be happy to merge my wiki with the Arrowverse wiki. Until or if that time comes, I'm keeping my wiki separate.
Again, sorry for the long message, but I wanted to clear the situation up.
Thanks for the information, and I understand your reasons for not wanting to merge due to the previous issues you encountered. Looking at the history between you and the Black Lightning Wiki, keeping this wiki separate is probably the best course of action to avoid future conflicts. I wish you luck in your endeavour!
Thanks for understanding. The situation is messy, and I don't want to escalate it any further. Again, if Black Lightning becomes part of the Arrowverse, I will be happy to merge with the Arrowverse wiki.
