Just to let you know I changed or at least i think i changed Adam's hair from brown to blonde because on page 321 on Shatter Me in the second paragraph it says that "he runs his hand through his messy blond hair." I would just like that to be corrected because it is a simple mistake that everyone seems to miss. Anyways I hope you have a good day!
It's true that the versions you uploaded are in better quality, and having slightly better file names, however, Lyra did upload them first; in order to keep her edit history in display, and since they are in fact the same file types, please just head over to the latter and update the images (it may warn you that you would then be uploading the exact duplicates, but just ignore it as the separate files would be eventually deleted). File name change is a piece of cake for later.
I'll edit this post if I find more fitting this situation.
Grace, dear, can you please reread what I wrote to you slowly and carefully? Cuz you did exactly the OPPOSITE of what I said. What the heck is the point of replacing your higher quality image to crappier ones? I asked you to bloody replace the ones uploaded by Lyra, so that there would still be a record of her initially doing the upload. There is absolutely no point in replacing the ones you uploaded AKA the duplicates, when they shouldn't have been uploaded separately in the first place.
If I have to spell it out clearly, so be it, I have no idea why there was any misunderstanding in the first place, but I would like to avoid any other possibility; take the last bullet point for example:
So that File:Shatter Me eyes by chrysalisgrey.jpg can have the 705 × 1,132 quality, while still showing Lyra initially uploading the first file, and you are still the one uploading the better quality one; win-win situation.
Do I make myself clear? I do not have any other way to explain this simple action.
Oh god I'm sorry I was/am half-alseep readng the post. Im pulling an all-nighter right now for exams. Horrible at making excuses but this is honestly true - I'll def fix the files in 2 days tops. Sorry!
It's okay. I'm sorry if the tone of my last message come of as a total b*tch; I kind of panicked cuz I wasn't looking at this wiki's recent changes, and by the time I saw you did the uploads, it wasn't exactly like it had just happened; I didn't know if you would go on replacing the other files in the misunderstood way, so I figured I had to explain exactly what I meant ASAP. Again, sorry for coming off way to strong, but thanks for letting me know the situation, and no worries, as long as now you do get what I meant then it's fine, there's no real rush, so if you are busy, don't need to stress for this task.

Hey there! Just a reminder :3 You still have one more to go. (I've removed the ones you've finished replacing from the 1st post so that it won't get too confusing.) Thank you for replacing them. =D
I was wondering if you think entering Tabbers after the Biography (of characters) is a good idea. I don't mind AT ALL either way, just wanted to let you know that there is another option and that we could do that if you wanted and thought it would be better and more orgniazed or something. I've made Juliette's page like that so you can see an example of what it would look like. If you don't like it, I can take it away.
I've been editing Juliette's Notebook and if we were to put all the passages, it would be a really long article and it would take too long to reach the other information such as Appearance and everything else (suggesting you don't use the Table of Contents). Other than that, it doesn't look very nice. So I was thinking I should make a link for Passages that would link to another page/article that would contain the passages for that book (example: Juliette's Notebook Passages in Destory Me/Passages from Juliette's Notebook in Destroy Me <---hopefully something shorter) or we can edit the Wiki Navigation to add tab for the passages. Do you think it's a good idea? Cause I think it's a really good thing to have the passages from her notebook available in the Wiki.
Also, have you seen the new effect for Maze Runner Wiki? When you hover over your profile image, it rotates and becomes a circle and when you hover over the sites name, it gets larger. Do you think you can choose what kind of effect you want or is it all the same? Can we do it ourselves?
Answering the second part of your question, it is done via java script, something you girls should def. NOT think about considering how both of you are so inexperienced. I am NOT saying this to belittle you both, but FOR NOW, that is sort of a fact; it CAN obviously change if you choose to spend time and study the mechanics, but scripts are something that, to be honest, if you don't know what you are doing, then you shouldn't be messing around with. I also suggest that in the future, anything regarding to the designing aspects of this wiki, start a thread and post it at Board:Questions and Answers, so that it's not all crammed in a person's wall, and that other people (if there's any) from the community can contribute to; for you never know, perhaps there is in fact someone with advanced knowledge that would be interested in helping out. There is also the fact that you girls already enabled the new forum function, might as well ACTUALLY USE IT, or it's just a waste of space.
ALSO, do at least reply to Thread:3807; I may not have knowledge for this series, but in any standard it is quite rude to ignore a post written to you, no matter whom it was from.
We should definitely not write out the passages word-by-word. Only as summaries of each one. Secondly, the appearance is barely mentioned and has little significance anyway.
So I just saw that you wrote out the journal entries...word-by-word. We really shouldn't do that; what's the point of reading them in the book then? And it's considered plagiarism right now. Perhaps you could credit Tahereh Mafi's work?
Pointing it out, Table of Contents automatically appears once you insert a heading. I haven't heard a way to prevent it. And even if you could, I'd still have a Table of Contents nethertheless.
The animations are pretty cool additions, but not exactly needed. Only my opinion though.
Okay, so if you disagree with making a new page for the passages, then I think your idea is good; to add a summary only But if you think that's not good either, then we can just exclude the passages entirely. I think it would be good to have the passages available, though. Someone may just want access to the passages from J.'s notebook and they can just click on an article or something to see them. If you disagree, though, I think it is totally fine. I's not that big of a deal, anyway.
No, no! We can have the passages on the article. We just shouldn't make a new page specifically for the passages if we can fit them on one page. Besides, the entries in the book don't have a title, so what would we name the page?
So you think we should just write the summary? Or maybe we can create one of those things where you click on a specific word/sentence and the contents appear under it so you can close and open it whenever you want like the table of contents? (If that's even possible).
I'm sorry I've been absent for a few days, but it's the holidays, you know? I'm probably not going to be on the wiki for a week or two, actually. I'm very sorry to say it, though I'm flying to the South to meet up with family, and I won't be here for a while. Please contact User:Aaron Warner-Perfection for any questions. Thank you.
Okay, so these quote things, well, we have to place them in quotes because they are talking. The big quotes are used because weare quoting the book,so there is no use for two quotes at the beginning and end ofa sentence. Juliette, however, does not needa quote because it is her thoughts, and she is not speaking.
I'm going to make a new wikia called Furthermore Wikia! Actually, I'm looking at the tab right now. The name of the wikia is Furthermore Wikia and the wikia address is furthermore.wikia.com. I haven't submited it yet because I was wondering if you thought it would be better to write the address as furthermore-tahereh-mafi instead. The book hasn't come out yet and there is no cover so it'll be pretty much empty but I wanted to make the Wiki before anyone else and this way we haveplenty of time to get everything organized andfixed so wehave a plan once we get the information when the book comes out. We'll also be able to becom affiliates with this wiki.
I was wondering if we could become an affiliate of The Maze Runner Wiki? It says that we have to post their link or put it on our own wiki first, then leave a comment on their wiki saying our username and our wiki's link so I was wondering if you could do it since I'm not sure how you became affilaites with the other wikis and you know what you're doing and stuff.
Also, if you ever come around when I'm online too, you can open the live gruop chat thing so we can communicate live, if you want.
I visited the Polish Shatter Me Wiki... are we supposed help build that wiki? Cause if we are, I was thinking we could just use a relaible translator or something...
Well, I'll just say this, other more sucessful wikis do not have quotes like that (Katniss and Uriah), even if it's dialogue. And when quoting dialogue in MLA format, you would not have two quotes, that just look silly.
"You helped her"
is the correct way to quote dialogue instead of
""You helped her""
where there are two quotations on each side.
Cool! It's nice that you're making a wiki, just make sure there's enough people to contribute. I'll be happy to help if you want. furthermore.wikia.com is more professional, but it's your wiki, you can name it which way you want. furthermore.wiki.com would just be easier to search up.
We can become affiliates with them. I'll do that soon (depending on how much time I have).
Lastly, we do not HAVE to contribute to the Polish wiki. Like you said, it would be pretty difficult without a translator.
Sighs.... I don't want to hurt you girls' feelings... But aren't you girls possibly biting off more than you can chew? This wiki still have SO much work, and you've already gone ahead to create another wiki? Well, good for you for being so motivated I guess, also kudos to you for snatching the url. However, what exactly do you know about this new book, besides what the author has revealed so far? Is it a BOOK, or a BOOK SERIES? This wiki is for a series, and it already only has less than 50 pages, can you imagine having a wiki for a single book? Like what, 10+ pages? Is it worth opening a wiki that may not ever have many content? No matter; what's done is done, and perhaps you will actually have loads of stuff there. On that note, since the book doesn't release till next August, I suggest the both of you to meanwhile use THAT WIKI as a test wiki; since neither of you are fully familiar with editing on Wikia. Test out layout, templates, anything you can think of, and only apply them here when you are satisfied with the result.
Um, I'm just offering to help. I don't really expect to be there full-time; just there to give the wiki a little booster. I doubt I could even handle building a wiki to a decent state (lol). I'll only be there in it's beginning stage, and hopefully it will grow bigger as User:Aaron Warner-Perfection finds some active members to contribute frequently. And Furthermore is a junor high fiction (middle school), which I discovered a while ago, and I think I've gradutated that stage for a while now, haha.
If Lyra lets me, I'll use it as a test wiki, though.
I couldn't see the eye either and I had a problem with it so I was looking for more pictures that would look better!!! It's great how you're getting a professional one made! But I think it's better than previous pictures. Can't wait to see the new picture. Also, the favicon (the image for the site that appears on the tabs and stuff) is there a black hexagon around it o is it just my computer? XD I liked the one before (Without the black outline) better. :)
I only changed the square favicon to the hexagon favicon because square (16x16) favicons seems very sloppy, as if someone had hastily uploaded it without taking time to edit and perfect it. I'm trying hard to find someone good at graphics, so it may take a while :)
What? No, there isn't, like, a group of graphic designers for Wikia. I'm just looking around at different wikis, and if they seem really well laid out, I'll ask an ADMIN who designed it and if they'd be willing to offer any help (though, I haven't found any yet).
Girls, PLEASE STOP deleting any thing on this wiki; Lyra, you've just deleted one of the logos of the affiliates wikis. Don't do actions when you don't fully understand the situation. And seriously, deleting files one by one is an effing waste of time, and I'd really hate either of you to effing waste your time when you could have been doing something else.
Okay, well I look it up before (Forum: Mass delete images), and there's no way to delete more than one photo at once, except with a bot. I mean, you can replace them, but I think (think!!) you can only replace newly uploaded photos.
Command/Ctrl. F and search for "Category/image either not relevant to this wiki, or duplicates, cropped, scaled down, poorer quality of existing files"; you'll see that all of the images given this reason were deleted exactly the same time.
Should I stay off all the past photos until you give back your moderator rights (which I know you don't have right now)? It probably would be easier for you (and us, lol) if User:Aaron Warner-Perfection and I didn't touch any of the files unless you say to modify them.
1. Admin Support Team. They're essentially a team of experienced ADMINS who help other ADMINS with their wikis. Unfortunately, they're currently down right now.
2. User:Xxsammmsammmxx mentioned the Community Devlopment Team. They literally help with the wiki design; they create new logos, graphic backgrounds, etc etc etc, but we'd have to add more to the wiki before they helped.
Uh... Does this wiki really need anything new though? o___O (I'm seriously just curious about the answer) Did you both find something that's incredibly ugly or something? Again this is just my personal opinion, but I certainly didn't think anything was on a fugly level, if that makes any sense. I haven't built a fruitful portfolio, but this was what I've worked on before: w:c:syfyfaceoff:Special:RecentChanges (logo and background, both having nothing set prior to the fix); another slight redo might be coming up, depending on my mood. If there's anything I could help out, I would, but you gotta be specific about what you want.
The main concern is the current background, nothing else really. It's just that the eye can't be seen at all because it's in the middle and the sides look plain. We haven't fully decided on how the background should look like yet, though if you were to ask me personally, I'd go for something like:
I love the favicon you've put for the Wiki! It is perfect!
But...the background of the wiki (the birds) are nice, and we all know their important relation to the story, but it doesn't look very nice being tiled (repeated) and stuff. It is a bit dark, and it doesn't seem to...represent the story...you know what I mean? It was hard for me trying to find a new background, and this is better than the ones I tried, but maybe we could try a few more backgrounds? Possibly without needing to repeat in a way where itwould not look nice. I know that, when zoomed in enough to fit the screen, the tiled imagesarenot obvious, but I think it could be better.
I was seeing Kenji's quote, andI love that line from him, but in the story, Kenji shows his humorous sidemore than his secretive "dark", secretive side we all would kill ourselves to find out. So a funny quote (there are so many...pretty much everything he says) would be more appropriate because it would represent his personality more.
Also, I like how after the dashes (after the quotes) you add the name and then the book. I've decided to just pklace one dash and then a space, I think it is nicer that way.
I was also wondering if it would be better for all the characters to be visible when hovering over the "Characters" tab. It is a lot, and it might not fit, but I think it would be better for all of them to be easily accessable.
I was trying to find a background to match the blue backgrounds of the book, but I can't find any 0.0. The background here is a homemade one, but it seems I'm pretty bad at art and stuff, haha. I mean, if you have a better background, you can change it, but I can't find any good ones.
I'll change Kenji's quote into something funnier (which is a word now, lol).
What do you mean by all the character being visible? Like on the category page, all of them would appear at the top?
love Kenji's quote, I was considering the "I know for a fact there are millions of people who would love to see me naked" quote but this one is just as perfect!
By "all the charactersbeing visible", I meant that, on the navigation bar or whatever its called, after going into "Universe" and opening "Characters", all the characters that ever appeared in the shatter me series would be there. it is a bit much and some aren'ttoo important, like juliettes parents and warners mother and stuff. But I'm not sure if its a good ideato add "backgroundcharacters" either. "Omega Point memebers" is not that good either because then it would be repeating, regardless of the fact that omega point doens't evevn exist anymore. but there are a lot more important characters to be added, so I think we should start with those first.
Oh, well I don't know if we could list all the characters; I'm sure Wikia has a limitation on this. We defintely could add more, though the ones on it right now are the main characters, if wiki members wanted to see the complete set of characters, they could just click the sub-category "characters" on the navigation bar which leads to the Category:Characters page anyway.
I'm sorry if I've confused you, I'm not too good at phrasing things!
