  • Hello,

    I am the bureaucrat of the Shades of Magic Wiki and I wanted to ask if you would like to affiliate?

  • Just wondering if you have done any work on the Swarm recently, due to the new book coming out. I believe we left off on Ch. 21 or 22 last August, as I am looking at finishing the book soon.

  • I recently bought issue number 1 of Ender's Shadow:Battle School. I was thinking we may want to use this page as a template for future comics, so I was wondering how you want to do this. I know presently on the wiki we have a general overview of each comic with areas left for summar. However, other wikis such as Wookiepedia make completely different pages for each issue as well as an overview page of the comic series.

    Do not worry about me buying more of these anytime soon because I got lucky and found it at my college comic book shop this Saturday, so unless he has more, I will probably not buy more for a little while.

  • Earlier today, we had an individual come through and vandalize approximately 10 pages. I tried my best to undo the edits, but I am letting you know, so that we can ensure that these pages are restored to their original quality, as the vandalism was extensive. I banned the user from the wiki immediately, as we can not risk him or her doing it again.

    • Also, I am unsure about its current state, but it would probably be a good idea to make the page on Mazer Rackham protected, since the page on Ender is also protected, and Mazer's page is too extensive to risk being ruined due to vandalism.

    • Thanks for informing me, I'll try to get to work. Don't see why WIkia's auto-revert bots didn't kick in. Also, I updated the ban of the vandal for a extra few millenia for him to get the message.

      Edit: I've gone through the pages and fixed the ones you didn't already.

  • I'm still running in to the occasional old character page which use the old reference system, without the links and books. I feel uncomfortable editing these pages as I don't want to link any information with the inocorrect book since it has been a while since I read the corresponding books, so if the character or item is reference to multiple books, I am going to let you know about them, so you can take a look. Right now, I have finished updating the E-characters a part from Ela Ribeira, who is the first character I ran into with this problem. Slowly, working down the list of characters in alphabetical order.

  • Hello again! Let me know exactly what you need help with, and I'll get started soon.

  • Hi, MavikVCT!

    I removed the outdated Science fiction footer; as a replacement, I'd like to invite Ender's Game to join our movie footer program. Please let me know if you are interested!

    Best regards,

    Raylan

    • Ender's Game is mainly a book series, which is why it is sorted in the "Books Hub". I'll gladly join the movie footer, however, but is there a seperate one for science fiction novels as of now?

    • As of now there isn't a list of book footers, though there is a chance in the future we'll split apart the existing single footer we have. I can put you down for any science fiction one we make :)

      For now I'll place Ender's Game in the movie footer. If the option comes up in the future for a book footer, I'll let you know and then you can decide which you want displayed on the main page.

    • Alright, sounds good. Thank you!

  • Hey Mavick, just thought I would let you know everything is going great in college. Unfortunately, I have not really been able to read the Swarm a part from a speed reading course this weekend because I have a ton of reading for other classes. However, I do want to start getting back involved with the wiki since I am getting used to college life. If you could let me know of any small projects, such as looking over the wiki pages for conformity or short stories that need to be looked at in further detail, just let me know. Also, just noticed some of the pictures for badges. Looks great.

    • Nice to see you back! To be honest, I haven't felt very motivated to add more of The Swarm to the wiki, and as a result we're only up to Chapter 21. However, that daunting task has overshadowed a lot of smaller, yet also essential projects on the wiki.

      The To-Do List is always a good place to check for tasks, but there are a few things I haven't put on there, as they are pretty minor. First of all would be updating pages to current standards, i.e. references, Personality header, and sub-headers in the History section. Checking "Oldest pages" is a good way to find these.

      Other than that and the To-Do List tasks, there's just some minor details across the wiki that need to be fixed, and you can probably catch some by clicking through random pages.

      I'm glad to hear that college is going well for you, and I hope to see you more on the wiki again!

      Also, a few updates. I've enabled the new Discussions feature to replace Forums, so if you have any feedback in regards to how I've layed it out it would be much appreciated. The About & Staff page now can have descriptions for our staff members, so feel free to add to your section.

    • Thanks for updating me, and when I have a little more free time I will be sure to continue the book on the wiki, as that is where I am approximately.

  • I was just thinking about the books Poll which has been on the Wiki since January. It may be a good idea to change it once The Swarm is released as a constantly changing poll is a good way to keep people coming back to the wiki. We could then post the result on twitter or by some other means and tell people to come to the new poll. This may slowly get more people coming to the wiki as it is a minor interaction. If you like this idea, I would suggest making the first poll related to the repeating characters from the First Formic Wars trilogy who will be or may be seen in The Swarm and the poll should be posted on August 1st or 2nd if we do this. Anyway this is just a suggestion and my thoughts.

    • Yeah, I was intending to make a new poll on the 2nd when The Swarm is released, titled "What was your opinion on The Swarm?" with some options. I haven't made a new poll in awhile because I was waiting to have that done. About two or three months after, I intend to make a "Who was your favorite new character from The Swarm?", and so on.

    • Okay. Sounds good.

  • I finished updating the major information for Earth Afire today, and I am going to begin reading Earth Awakens after I sleep aiming to get through the first chapter. I calculated that if I read one chapter a day including today I should finish Earth Awakens by July 29. I know The Swarm is released on August 2, so is July 29 too late, or do you have an earlier date you would like me to aim for?

    With Earth Afire I believe I have covered all the information. I was thinking about adding a small page for Mr. Bullick, but other than him and some other minor characters the book should be covered. Essentailly, any missing information on the book is not neccessary to be on the wiki at this point. Maybe later after we have detailed some of the other books. Anyway that is the current update let me know what you are thinking.

    • Though at the moment post-Third Invasion tech should all be under Starways Congress, when new books such as Fleet School come out we may want to change that into Colinization Era and Starways Congress Era, but for now that sounds good.

    • Just letting you know I left a message in the live chat. It is not urgent, but I just wanted to test out the live chat as I thought it would be a useful tool for when we were both on the wiki at the same time.
