The character Ethan needs to be renamed to Ethan James. When I updated the list of cast members, I realized this when going through the episodes cast list on the proboards site. I would do it but I'm not sure if I should leave a redirect or go back and fix the links once its renamed.
So I asked Sol about it and she likes the idea. But I changed the pictures for some of the bronze badges to feature a Destined One. The creator badge is Sol’s profile picture and the welcome to the wiki badge is the picture of all the Destined Ones, but due to size of image you can see Prue and partially two other Destined Ones.
I’m asking you what you think of the idea as well.
And for right now it will just be the bronze badges and the creator badge to have their image changed. The names of the badges will remain the same no matter what.
I love the idea! Sol and I talked about it very briefly a while ago, but never got around to it. The correct image size for badges is 78x78, so that might be why you're encountering an issue with sizing :)
Overall, it's a great idea. You could also change the other images to potion bottles, powers, etc. Maybe for the highest achievement use the BOS? Just an idea!
Thanks! Like I said to Sol, I’m going to take some time with it as I get busy with school stuff (especially since exams are this week) but I want it to be a gradual shift...just so I prevent any errors that could sneak they’re way in. We don’t need the badges to mess up like other things...lol.
I just wanted to thank you for answering the comment left by an anonymous user disrespecting Destined and therefore my work, yours, Tim's and the love fans have for Destined.
I honestly saw it this morning after waking up, I was still at the bed and my first thought was if I should or not answer it. I honestly have no words left to answer to this kind of comments from ignorant people. Sorry for the use of that term but I couldn't find another one that describes these people better. The World has evolved a lot, but there are people who still seem to live inside a bubble. They have full access to the internet, books and all kind of information, but they still live in a bubble. What can we do?!
Your answer was straight to the point and very polite, which shows the right person you are and smart.
So for that, thank you a lot :)
Blessed be my friend and once again thank you for everything you've done to help me and Destined.
Aw, I'm glad you liked it! While originally I was very angry at the comment for its disrespectful language and shielded view-point, as I was writing a response I realized that they're uneducated. The media portrays one view of cousins who date or have affection toward one another, so any kind of change can be a shock. It was, admittedly, a shock to me until I heard your story and did research. Now, it doesn't bother me at all and I ship Pryatt so much it's ridiculous.
I'm sorry that you have to see these kind of comments on your work, on something that you're so dedicated to. It breaks my heart that you're so used to these kinds of comments. Please know that these people are just ignorant and uneducated people with a narrow viewpoint of the world, and do not speak for all Destined fans. All we can do is try to educate them further without sinking to their level.
Thank you, I appreciate your kind words. And you are welcome, I tried to ignore it but I think the more we respond and speak up about these things the more awareness and education we can spread.
You're welcome, and thank you for letting me be a part of this community and for being a great friend as well. Blessed be, my friend.
Thank you so much, dear. I wish people all over the world were more like you. That's why we live in the 21st century and there is so much hatred against what's different. I've seen one of this person's comments and he or she referred to gays! That only proves that this person is a racist apart from being ignorant.
Thank you for not judging without research. I do that as well when I run into something I have not knowledge about because I don't want to be judgemental against what I don't know. This person is obviously the opposite from us.
Yes, you did well in blocking him, her whatever. I would have done the same.
You're welcome! and I wish more people were like you :) There is, and it's so heartbreaking because you'd think we'd be more accepting of the world around us. When he/she mentioned gays I knew that the person was truly homophobic, racist, and just an angry person all around. That's why the block button is amazing ;)
When we judge without research its harmful to both our evolution and the people that we are judging. The world around us isn't taboo anymore, and hopefully everyone can learn to be a little more accepting. This person is a great example of trolling.
You're welcome, hun :) Glad that we were on to handle it and that we're more mature than trolls.
Thank you, dear. Yes, that comment about gays was horrible. I understand that sometimes we don't understand something, but judging them?! My God! We all come from the same place and will end up in the same place. That's why we should not judges others disrespectfully.
Just got it. So, what you can do as the founder, is disable commenting for anon users. If it gets worse you can also request for Community Central Admins to implement a wiki-wide ban. In the future, use "sockpocketing" as a reason in his ban. this will let everyone know that he is a multi and IP hopper.
So, I was editing this part of the wikia and I want to have all those who've been playing an important part in Destined. I just don't know how to put them there. I was thinking that maybe I could do it alphabetically. What do you think?
That's a lot of characters lol. Maybe just consolidate them down and do it by appearances. For example, the parents should be first, then your main villains in order of season, the other family members, and then major characters. If you'd rather do it alphabetically that would work as well, the only thing with that is that a lot of people look for certain characters and when it's alphabetical it's a little harder to find them.
I would make the edit myself, but I'm not sure really what the right dates are. As some of the dates are wrong for some episodes and I came to you as I figured you knew the dates better because I honestly have no clue what the correct dates would be on the incorrections, and I'm not sure if the scripts have the air date with them.
Hey! Yeah, I started doing the list and then completely forgot. So, each of the air dates can be found on the respective episode pages. They're not accurate to our-time (I think to match-up with the actual premier date) but those are the dates that should be used. I will finish the list up one of these days, but if you wanted to go ahead and do it you can. You can find the dates on the individual episode pages.
If you're talking about the Seasons page, some were incorrect as the corresponding dates on each episode page for season 4 ended up being incorrect in matching. I had to go back and forth between season 4 episodes and the seasons page to correct them, accordingly. As the date on Stormy Leather (which was previously November 8th, now Nov. 15th) the correct date) was the same as A Little Ruby of Me (also Nov. 8th). That's why I changed the date of S.L. and the ones following S.L. ended up being a week ahead. That had to be fixed.
As for the TBA episodes on the seasons page for seasons 4, those had to change to fit the corresponding weekly episode pattern, after the date correction.
If I hadn't corrected the dates, those who read it for info would've been mislead.
Nothing wrong, just wondering why? I thought she was a Warren Ancestor..though I didn't create the page..I don't think..at this point..I have made a lot of edits to the wiki to help expand it that I don't even remember what page I made my first edit on..lol.
Anyway, just curious as why it was deleted.
Awaiting your answer,
P.S. Can't stop listening to the song "Proud Corazon" from Disney and Pixar's COCO! LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH!
If you check ProBoards, you'll see that the page has been discussed for deletion before. There are also other pages that have/are being talked about for deletion, although I can't remember if they've all reach a conclusion or not.
Anyway, the reasons for deletion were:
Little-no information on her
She played no role in Destined
She has never been directly mentioned in Destined
She was never mentioned in Charmed, only in the novels
All of the information on her page was a repeat of other pages
Oh, and your first edit was to The Triad, although you did upload a few pictures before that. If you go to anyone's page and hit, "Contributions" and then "Earliest" you can see their first edits :)
Hope this answered your question!! And remember to check ProBoards for any updates on article stubs :)
I'm having an issue and its happening on my own wiki too. As of recently the wanted pages list says there are ZERO wanted pages to be created which isn't true as I have many red-links in the process of being created on my wiki. So I came to this wiki and went to the wanted pages (btw, this is all through the Admin Dashboard) and the same thing.
Are you experiencing this? I'm asking because I'm not sure if I'm the only one.
Awaiting your answer and hope you had a great Thanksgiving,
Yes, I've been noticing this problem as well. You can contact Community Central and they'll handle the issue. I've been noticing this issue on other Wikia's as well. I don't wnat to send in a duel report, so let me know if you decide to send one in. Thank you for letting me know you're expierencing this as well!
I did have a good Thanksgiving, I got to see my Uncle whom I haven't seen in a while so that was nice. :) And seeing my Grandparents is always fun and nice. How was yours?
Edit: I also wanted to remind you about copying and pasting from other Wikia's. Especially with character pages. While I understand for bulks of information, please make sure to adjust the layout to match that of Destined's.
Okay, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I was worried that I was having an error that take awhile to get fixed.
I'm happy to hear your Thanksgiving was great. Mine was great too. Though, the day before my mom, my sisters, and I went to the thrift store and our grandma let us borrow her card since she was too sick to take us. Anyway we get up there and do the usual looking around and picking things out. And when we get to the register, the cashier said we couldn't use her card, since she wasn't there to present her ID to confirm. The thing is, my family and I have shopped at that store for years and the cashier knew who we were and she know our grandma but she said sorry I don't. I told her she could call our grandma and she could tell the woman that she let us borrow it. But she was like, I can't..it would take too long and I'd have to that for every customer as it goes against my policy. So my mom goes to take our buggy (full of stuff) to the side and this woman behind runs after her and grabs this Christmas decoration that I really wanted and goes back to her husband in line with a smile on her face. I'm like..wtf?! Is she serious?. I ended up walking out of the store before I said something I'd regret. Though I'm hoping karma goes back on the cashier lady, or has..you know what I mean. But overall it was okay.
I know about the copy/paste thing and I try to adjust the layout as much as I can to match that of Destined's. Though its to match the other editors's (You, Sol, and Witchy) way of wording and grammar. And mine is almost the same as the original due to my OCD having my need of writing to sound perfect and formal. And that's why I try to avoid doing major character's history and adding info, because my wording and grammar is diiferent than that of the original creator of the page on the wiki (Destined). As for Leo, I did his page at a late time (well a late one for myself) and was beginning to doze off. So I went ahead and finished his page so I could go on to sleep and finish adjusting the rest of it, the next day (today that is). So I hope you can understand that small predicament and I was only tired, because we were out last minute Black Friday shopping at some stores that were doing sales yesterday, and I was really tired after that.
Nope, you aren't the only one. Most times, if you're noticing it on more then one Wikia, it's a Wikia problem not a you-problem.
Yeah, shopping policy's are really sticky situations. That lady who took the decoration sounds really rude - she could have at least waited until you were out of the store! Glad to hear the rest of your holiday was good, though.
I understand, I just wanted to make sure that you knew the layout. If you're ever confused, referencing Prue or Wyatt's pages are always a good idea. :) I'm actually going to message Sol and see if we can come up with a main layout. Wordng isn't a big deal, it's just keeping things releveant to Destined and what not. For Leo, the only thing would be the heading sizes, physical appearance section (we use Physical Appearance instead of Appearance since the latter is used to least characters appearances), and name section (we use Name's Meaning). The rest was fine, though. I understand the whole being exauhsted thing haha. Just watch out for it in the future :)
Yeah, I agree..she could have waited until we were out of the store.
Okay, a main layout would be good. With the heading sizes it gets confusing sometimes when trying to decide which size it should be, but its not a big deal. Yeah, I forgot to put physical in front appearance, I meant to do it though. And I will watch out for the exhaustion thing in the future.
I saw that you put a deletion warning on Chinese False Face Demon. I do disagree because its a demonic species not a specific character. I have also been cleared with Sol's consent that it was okay to make a page for a magical species (good and evil). Deleting this page would be saying that all magical species pages that have yet to appear in Destined would have to be deleted. Aztec and Chinese False Face Demon round out the last two species that already exist in the magical world. As I've said, I'd already talked to Sol about creating pages for magical species and she said that it wasn't a problem.
Hi, Matt. Thank you for reaching out with your concerns, I understand why you feel the way you do. The reason that it's been flagged is because they were already a minor species/being in Charmed (only having been mentioned in a conversation and seen briefly in a book), and have yet to even be mentioned or seen in Destined. Yes, creating magical speices is fine, but Chinese False Face Demons are to minor to warrant their own page. Plus, the page itself is a stub. No, other species pages that haven't appeared in Destined would remain even if this one was deleted. Like I said, they were a minor species in Charmed and have yet to even have their existence confirmed in the Destined universe. We can discuss this further at proboards with the other Admins if you want to. I just feel that the page doesn't need to exist as it isn't a major species, and wasn't even seen in Charmed other than in a picture.
Hi, I understand what you're saying it being a minor species. Though I think, since its minor, that there should somewhere its at least mentioned. Or I could even rename the page to have both on one, or not as well. Its really whatever. Now that I know why you flagged it, I am starting to agree with what you saying. So I'll go ahead and let you do what's need to be done, that way I don't..you know..pull a Matthew (that's what my friends and I call an accident I make, be it to myself, someone, or something else).
Hi. Thank you for understanding, and I agree, the information should be stated somewhere on the Wika since they do exist. Since it's a small amount of information, you could merge it with the "Magical Community" page. Maybe create a heading titled, "Other Community Members" and a sub-heading section for "False Face Chinese Demon" and inport all the information and image there. Then, if they're showed in Destined and more information is gathered, a page can be created. As of now, there just isn't enough information and it's to minor of a species to have it's own page.
No worries, I appreciate you reaching out to me so we could discuss this maturely. Please don't hesitate to message me with any addtional questions or concerns. I'm always available to help! :)
Okay, that makes sense then. Sorry if some of my edits were incorrect then.
I agree, we should do that. Maybe rename with a redirect left behind so the links left behind don't point to red ones? Should we rename it using Chris and Bianca's names? Or maybe just rename it to, "Condo"? It's up to you :)
