Hi, welcome to Game of Thrones Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the User:Iron Bank page.
We welcome all contributions to the Wiki but please be aware of the following simple rules:
1) This wiki is meant for the Game of Thrones TV series and the TV alone. Spoilers from the novels are not permitted at all. Discussion of earlier events in the novels and the use of non-spoiler background material from the novel as regards specific events, characters and places in the TV series are allowed (in the 'In the books' section of an article) but future events cannot be discussed.
2) This wiki has specific permission from HBO's marketing department to use a reasonable number of promotional images and screencaps from the series to illustrate articles. The use of other copyrighted images is not permitted without either specific permission or fair use attributions. For example, this Wiki cannot use Amoka's portrait images or Ted Nasmith's castle pictures as these are copyrighted. In addition, the Wiki is focused on the TV series and TV series alone. Images from other media should be avoided without a very good cause.
Please stop; there isn't enough information on Lhazareen or Qartheen to justify giving them their own pages (technically they weren't specifically mentioned in the TV show; that's why they're only briefly given some mention on the overall "Languages" page).--The Dragon Demands (talk) 01:19, June 15, 2014 (UTC)
Okay. Sorry about that. Iron Bank (talk) 02:02, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
Some of the userboxes are mutually contradictory. You cannot be a Kingsguard and also sworn to another house - that's why they're the Kingsguard!
Probably also can't be a maester at the same time, given that they're technically neutral and just serve whoever controls the castle they're assigned to.--04:07, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
I, as the one true God (other than G.R.R.M of course), defy these laws.Iron Bank (talk) 04:19, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
Unless I serve House Martell in secret... Iron Bank (talk) 04:20, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
- ...yeah, I, as an Administrator of the wiki, just removed those userboxes from your Userpage and locked it so you can't edit it. I'll unlock it in a few minutes just to let you know this is serious.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 04:25, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
Ack, I meant to just lock your page for a few minutes to get your attention but I got distracted by IRL and accidentally left it locked all night. Unlocked now, very sorry.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 21:52, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
No problem. Iron Bank (talk) 22:00, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry about that. I'll be sure to do so in the future. Thanks. Iron Bank (talk) 19:34, June 16, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! --Iron Bank (talk) 20:34, June 17, 2014 (UTC)
I haven't had a chance to read them, but I've heard things like that! --Iron Bank (talk) 22:17, June 17, 2014 (UTC)
New "Two Swords" imagesEdit
It took me a while but I fixed it. Very sorry about that, I think it was from the video player I was playing the episode in; I had the episode fullscreen and captured my whole screen without cropping it thinking I didn't need to do so. --Iron Bank (talk) 02:03, July 3, 2014 (UTC)
Image needed Edit
Please don't add the "Image needed" category to pages whose subjects don't actually appear in a licensed source, and therefore can't receive an image. It's standard practice to show a location's position pinpointed on the map. Also "Minor character" denotes the actor's billing, and how often they appear in the story/how important they are. "Mole's Town Whore" is a minor character, the pickled fetus of Selyse's stillborn children are not...-- 06:29, August 4, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, very sorry. --Iron Bank (talk) 20:26, August 4, 2014 (UTC)
Histories & Lore articlesEdit
Alright. --Iron Bank (talk) 16:39, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Vote for new BureaucratsEdit
The Wikia Staff said that even though Werthead is stepping down voluntarily, we need to have an open vote to determine who will now be promoted to Bureaucrat status.

Hello, I'm trying to get some census data about our editors:
Have you read the books? If not, do you plan to read them eventually? If you are reading them, did you already start reading them before the TV series started, or did you start after the TV show began? If after they began, have you: finished yet? still trying to finish? Or, you're intentionally only reading one book at a time to match the pace of the TV series? (the last of which is really not a good idea because a given TV season will often pull a chapter or two from the next book, i.e. Jaime and Brienne at the end of Season 2 were the start of book 3).
Are you male, female, more complex description? I kind of assumed male but you don't talk about yourself much.
What part of Canada do you hail from? (It helps to know what airing dates everyone is working with). If you don't want to say a specific city just give a province/region.
Would you like to be an Administrator?Edit
I made a list of potential Administrators to appoint when Season 5 began, which I limited to five new people (for a total of seven). Of these three accepted and one declined, but the last one CorneliusAgrippa hasn't been on the wiki since September 2014, and did not return for the Season 5 premiere.
Now assuming that CorneliusAgrippa will not be returning to regular editing for the forseeable future (and hoping we don't have a Torgon Greyiron the Latecomer situation) I'm now moving down the list.
Would you like to be an Administrator? We need help dealing with vandalism and spoiler-posts in Season 5. Keep in mind that this is a massive time commitment - or at least, we expect you to edit at least every day or two in the active season, around once a week in the off-season -- you can't just take off for a month during the off-season without explanation (explanations can be as simple as "stuff in my personal life happened, sorry" - just don't treat one month absences as normal).
