Currency established in the TV continuityEdit
I have to say that I tend to agree with the IP address user about some of the content in this article. A lot of it is not based on verifiable information from the TV series as far as I can tell. I think it needs to be better sourced or more concentrated in the "In the books" section where the information cannot be sourced to the TV series.--Opark 77 21:11, May 9, 2012 (UTC)
- Well if you think its better to re-arrange the headings so its under the "In the Books" section, just so it all seems kosher, I have no objection. But the TV series doesn't exist in isolation, its a book adaptation; the anonymous IP address just gutted the whole thing via deletion (which sort of rankled). Just generally, certain things which haven't been named yet in the series can probably be assumed to exist within the TV universe (i.e. in The Faith of the Seven, they didn't actually name all seven individual gods until season 2). Whatever. Do you feel it would be more appropriate to move the info under a "in the books" heading? --The Dragon Demands 23:01, May 9, 2012 (UTC)
- Okay as per your suggestion I've rearranged things to move stuff into "In the Books", and I deleted a few redundant things. How does it look to you?--The Dragon Demands 23:20, May 9, 2012 (UTC)
Gold Dragons were prominently mentioned in Season 1, and Coppers were mentioned in Season 2 so that establishes they exist in the TV series; I don't think they've mentioned Silver Stags yet.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 03:04, December 1, 2012 (UTC)
- I have double-checked the books, which do not capitalize them; A Wiki of Ice and Fire does capitalize these terms in its article. I think they should remain capitalized on here, because TV-first fans might not realize that they are specific terms within the fantasy universe. What do the admins think?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:17, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
Petyr Baelish's JobEdit
The quote names Lord Baelish as Master of Coin even though he was no longer Master of Coin at the time of the quote, nor is he presently. The Maester of Coin now and at the time of the quote is Tyrion Lannister. I don't see why it was added again.
Read the description I gave when I reverted your first edit. Baelish was the outgoing Master of Coin at the time, given that he said this the same episode they mentioned he was leaving - and he said it as he was leaving his office, handing off his records to Tyrion.
But this is fixating on a minor technicality - it is needlessly complicated to include long explanations in quotes, and it needed to be streamlined. If he said this in episode 4, after we see Tyrion acting as Master of Coin at council, then we'd have to include this detail. But in episode 3 he was "outgoing", so it isn't entirely wrong to omit the "former" from "Master of Coin". And above all, the quote shouldn't include too much complicated detail.
