Thanks a lot ! I'll have it in my mind. I'm an admin in two wiki but I'm not sure I understand how things work here. I'd be grateful if you could explain me more about special rules in this wiki so as not to make anything bad during my edits. Thanks again !

I need you to review "Version 2.0" of my writeup of this, sooner instead of later, I don't want to put it off until the end of Season 5, but to make it our "official position" and interlink with episode and character articles as soon as the other bureaucrats give it the go-ahead. Please point out anything you feel needs to be changed: http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/The_Jaime/Cersei_sex_scene_in_%22Breaker_of_Chains%22
   
Thanks, that's exactlly what i wanted to know, I suppose fanmade videos are forbidden. What about episode scenes videos ?

Interesting question: what licensing are we all supposed to add for non-HBO images, such as magazine covers that the cast appears on?--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 19:00, April 18, 2015 (UTC)
   
We need to be able to put House sigils into the navboxes for different regions and for houses by region. For example, the "House Tyrell" template navbox does currently contain a House Tyrell sigil, but the navboxes for "The Reach" (geographically) and "Houses from the Reach" should both have Tyrell sigils in them as they are the ruling House of the Reach. I can't figure out how to do this and my attempts have failed. This needs to be done very soon.--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 20:21, June 1, 2013 (UTC)

==Jaqen H'ghar in Season 5?==
::QueenBuffy made a request for help, so I'm responding here. I assume the changes mentioned by The Dragon Demands are needed for more than just the navboxes that apply to The Reach. Therefore I just created two templates (similar to [[Template:House navbox]]) to help with this process. The templates are [[Template:Region navbox]] and [[Template:Regional houses navbox]] (feel free to rename them). They allow you to simply enter the information and a sigil image, then display the navbox as usual. You can see the templates working at [[User:JoePlay/test]]. Let me know if have any trouble converting any existing navboxes to use these new templates, if you choose to use them.

:::P.S. Buffy, your signature template is causing all text after it to appear in a different font. This is because the [[Template:Buffymybasset/sig|template]] has <code><nowiki><font face="Microsoft Sans Serif"></nowiki></code> twice, but there is only one <code><nowiki></font></nowiki></code>. As a result, there is an open <code>font-face</code> tag.

==Featured Programming Updated==

Hey QueenBuffy,
   
Would you be so kind as to update some family tree portraits? Sansa, Arya, Bran, and even Rickon have notably aged, as well as Myrcella and Tommen. Jaime and Tyrion could use updates as well, for the beard and the scar, respectively. And there are better Robb images. --[[User:Gonzalo84|Gonzalo84]] ([[User talk:Gonzalo84|talk]]) 20:01, June 5, 2013 (UTC)

I noticed today that the featured programming section of Community Messages was painfully outdated. So I updated it with the recent Q&A and Giveaway things. Figured I might as well keep this updated every week or so. Let me know if you'd rather handle it or want a correction or something. Hopefully you don't mind!

About replacing the images with higher quality, I didn't know I could do that. If I replace the same picture because it's in low quality, I'll replace the old picture like you said! :) And for the elongated images, OK! :) I usually leave them as they are when I replace the info box image, but now I'll start making sure it's elongated :)

:The podcast was very nice, thanks for the shoutout to everyone else. I don't personally think I've done a "good job" because by my own high standards I haven't done as much as I wanted (I blame that on the three crucial months lost to Ch'Vyalthan...I don't mean to fixate on that, but he really did shut me down in the three months leading up to the premiere when I was hoping to make up for earlier lost time). --->Anyway, the funny thing is...given that you were on the True Blood Wiki and from LA/TX area...when I've read your messages in the past, in my head I read them using the voice of Pam the vampire.--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 17:29, June 9, 2013 (UTC)

Hi QueenBuffy,
   
I recently finished working on navbox templates for the [[w:c:stormlightarchive|Stormlight Archive Wiki]], using your navbox for reference.

At what point is it generally accepted that True Blood turned sour? Near as I can tell, it was good through Season 3 (due to Russell Edgington), then the Season 4 witches storyline really dragged on as a waste of time. Did Season 5 improve upon this? How do things look for Season 6?--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 14:42, June 16, 2013 (UTC)
+
(c) Lastly, would you mind if we updated the text of the community message itself when you change the Featured Programs section (so instead of sending the generic notice "Community Message has been Updated" it updates with context and a link)?
   
: In my opinion season 5 was pathetic; the return of Russell Edgington was the only aspect that made it remotely bearable. Early reviews for season 6 are positive, with some people saying that the show has "returned to it's roots", so to speak, and got back in touch with what made it good in the first place. Fingers crossed.--{{The Boy Who Cried Direwolf/signiture}} 14:49, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

==Jaime and the Lannisters==
+
==Filming locations==
   
Loosely speaking, my "favorite characters" are in order: 1-Daenerys, 2-Jaime, 3-...a combination of Myrcella and Shireen. They're really minor characters in terms of page count (so far, anyway) but I like the idea of them - the fact that Myrcella is this walking proof that Cersei isn't really a good mother, even though Myrcella basically looks like a younger mini-version of Cersei (I hope the show expands upon this, but Myrcella and Tommen basically had Stockholm Syndrome when they were living with Cersei before, or at least, they didn't know better....after Myrcella spends time with "sane people" with House Martell in Dorne, she realizes in retrospect how much Cersei mistreated and ignored her). Well, realistically my "third favorites" are a dozen-way tie topped by Barristan or some of the other better characters.
+
Why did you revert and ban the anonymous edits to [[Filming locations]] which added links to tour companies? And you banned their IP addresses. That's why there's a links section there - for tour companies to be added to. I don't think it counts as solicitation - though we do have to weed out the "good quality" tours from the small scale stuff just trying to latch onto the name.--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 22:33, May 15, 2015 (UTC)
Anyway, I want to make clear how I reconcile this with hating "House Lannister": Jaime isn't really a Lannister anymore, he gave up his House membership when he joined the Kingsguard. So I don't have a real paradox about hating Tywin/Joffrey/Cersei but liking Jaime; arguably it's one of the most interesting storylines in the series, Jaime's quest for redemption after losing his hand and realizing that without his martial ability, he's nothing, he's the guy everyone thinks is honorless (even though we later find out that in one of Martin's best examples of how it's a world of gray morality, Jaime saved all of King's Landing from the Mad King). Jaime's really stuck there - Eddard isn't angry he killed the Mad King, but that he didn't kill him ''earlier'', before the war started, thus saving his father and brother and stopping all this mess. Well, hindsight is 20/20, and even Jaime probably thinks, retroactively, that had he known what Aerys was capable of he would have killed him sooner. That, and he was *struggling with his vows to protect the king*, which DID matter to him, he didn't break his vows lightly, but the real tipping point came when Aerys tried to burn down the entire capital city as petty revenge against the victorious rebels. Seen from Jaime's...chronological perspective, he was just a frightened young teenger when Rickard Stark was executed, begging the other Kingsguard to do something (men whom he had revered his entire childhood as exemplars of knightly virtue)...men like Arthur Dayne, who stood by and didn't stop Aerys. I don't blame Barristan for not stopping Aerys; disagree, yes, but Barristan admitted he hated Aerys and was in a bad situation overall, but ultimately that he was bound by his vows....well, that, and Rhaegar *wasn't* insane. Most, practically all of the people who fought for the Targaryens in Robert's Rebellion weren't fighting for Aerys, they were fighting for Rhaegar. That's why Rhaegar's death at the Battle of the Trident was such a death knell to the Targaryen cause, not just the loss of their main army. Barristan fought *for Rhaegar*, by Rhaegar's side, and was taken prisoner at the Trident as soon as he died....he never fought for Aerys alone. And indeed, that's sort of why Jaime himself didn't break his oath sooner: everyone was just hoping that Aerys would die of natural causes soon, because everyone felt that Rhaegar would make a great king, so why break such holy vows when they could just wait a few years more for Rhaegar to succeed to the throne?

`
   
Anyway (I apologize for the length of this) it's weird that we don't seen Jaime interacting with Tywin...or really Cersei and Tyrion, since early book/Season 1, but they tried to emphasize this then: Jaime is the only member of Tyrion's immediate family who treats him as a brother, his own flesh and blood. Tywin and Cersei hate Tyrion for "killing" Joanna, Jaime doesn't blame him. I.e. when Jaime attacked Eddard in Season 1, that wasn't part of a "plan", even Tywin points out that it was stupidly rash; he just attacked Eddard because he was angry that his younger brother whom he loves was unjustly taken prisoner by the Starks (albeit for a crime Jaime actually committed, shoving Bran out the window). Also, the books make it clear by this point: Catelyn asks Jaime if he sent the catspaw assassin to slit Bran's throat, and he says he didn't; he would have done that himself if he wanted, cut his way into the room and cut his way out leaving no witnesses, he's a good enough fighter to do that - and Cersei wouldn't have ordered it without telling him. Jaime's plan, once realizing Bran was alive, was as the show says; just hope he doesn't remember and if he does, say he was dreaming. But yeah...he did try to kill Bran; but as Nikolaj has pointed out, he doesn't *enjoy* doing that; if Bran revealed his secret, Jaime, Cersei, and all of their children would be killed, so he didn't really have a choice at the time.

==Birthday girl==
 
 
I digress. The point is that "Jaime" isn't really a Lannister anymore, he's a Kingsguard. Minor spoilers here, but I had hoped we'd see this in the Season 3 finale: as you recall from Season 3, when Tywin is talking to Cersei, he says he considers Jaime his heir...even though Tyrion explicitly pointed out that Jaime gave up his right to inherit when he joined the Kingsguard. Tywin blows off both Tyrion and Cersei's suggestions that maybe they should be designated the heir then (Tyrion is the lawful heir under current succession law). How can Tywin think this? All these years, it turns out (to the surprise of even Jaime) his functional plan was to one day get powerful enough (i.e. after Robert died somehow) to manipulate the High Septon into granting Jaime special discompensation to free him from his Kingsguard vows....which is technically impossible and illegal. The vows are taken for life, no exceptions - and yes, you can buy off the Pope to say "it's okay" but that doesn't make it right. So there's this giant scene coming up at the first Small Council meeting Jaime attends as the new Lord Commander, in which 1 - He's actually very upset that they unlawfully fired Barristan, a man he respected his entire life (even if Barristan understandably was angry at him for breaking his vows), 2 - He's horrified at the sacrilege of the Red Wedding, and 3 - Tywin bluntly explains he's going to have him released from the Kingsguard, buying off the High Septon to say it's okay, and send him back to Casterly Rock as his heir. To the surprise of everyone, Jaime tells Tywin to shove it, and that he is a Kingsguard until he dies, and Tywin physically is in no position to force him to resign (or risk massive public embarrassment). Tywin threatens to disown Jaime if he refuses....and Jaime firmly responds that he ''already'' gave up his right to inheritance when he joined the Kingsguard, so Tywin's threats mean nothing. Tywin coldly says he'll let Jaime stay in the Kingsguard as he can't stop him, but he will no longer consider Jaime a Lannister or his own son...Jaime agrees. But really this is all in character: Jaime was the only one to stand up to Mad King Aerys, and thus he's the only one to openly stand up against Tywin. Yeah we've seen Cersei and Tyrion bicker with him, but it's a whole different dynamic between Tywin and Jaime - Tywin isn't *used* to Jaime talking back to him, nor is Jaime afraid of Tywin anymore (or anyone else; after losing his hand he basically considers himself a dead man already so he fears nothing, i.e. saving Brienne). I'm annoyed we didn't get that scene yet in Season 3, you were excited for "Jaime comes back to King's Landing" - oh, and we also realize that *Jaime hates Joffrey*, and realizes he's a monster. He was never in a position to "raise" their three children, but he's at least kind to Myrcella and Tommen (I hope they show this). But Jaime's the one who realized Aerys was evil, and he bluntly tells Cersei that Joffrey is crazy and a monster.--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 15:10, June 16, 2013 (UTC)
 
::I think story wise the Lannisters are just the most interesting to me. There is more meat to their stories, where as others in the show seem too linear. I understand why Jaime is honorable to the Kingsguard, but we can't forget the undying and unconditional love he has for Cersei. If you think about it, every thing he's done up to this point, has been for her, or per her request. When he returns to the Red Keep, the first person he see's... Cersei. In the books, I believe it tells how he gets Brienne situated before seeing Cersei, and perhaps that happened and the writers simply didn't show it- but they did show JUST Jaime seeing Cersei. He always wants to marry her and only be with her; it's tragic really, and I feel for Jaime in that way; although Cersei denying him is a given and obvious why she can't just run into his arms and agree to be his bride. {{Template:Buffymybasset/sig}} 19:42, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

Hi there! I’m Andrew, one of the community managers at Wikia. If you don’t know me, [http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User:Ducksoup here’s my CC profile]. I like baseball, laying on the beach with no plans or goals for the day, and [http://i.imgur.com/PA6oIng.jpg climbing things].
   
  +
We have a new beta project out, and since it's going to be critical to Wikia's future, we're asking for your help.
   
  +
We want to partner with your community (and a couple others) and collaborate on a redesign of your existing infoboxes. It’s not a small task, but it’s one that we think we can get done relatively quickly and efficiently. Our engineers - both here in San Francisco and in Poland - will get hands-on with your community and work with your team to redesign the infoboxes.
   
  +
You can read more [http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:841717 here in the forum] (and head to the sandbox to give it a whirl), but the tl:dr version: our current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and [http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/central/images/c/c3/Wikia_mobile_traffic_growth.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20150519221746 mobile is where Wikia’s growth lies]. We came up with a solution that will take a bit of effort, but will pay significant dividends in the near future. What we're hoping is that we can use this community to test out its strengths and limitations while we get it from “beta” to “full feature”.
   
Thank you
+
What you get out of the deal:
   
  +
*Wikia engineers who will work directly with your community to update the code that underpins your infoboxes
  +
*Access to staff for feedback, and our promise that your ideas will be taken seriously
  +
*A head-start on this change and therefore a significant upgrade in your community’s visibility
   
Greetings,
+
What we get out of the deal:
   
  +
*Several fresh sets of eyes that can help us understand how this will be used by the average Wikian
  +
*A test community that will let us track how the new infobox structure is used by visitors and viewers
  +
*The opportunity to share this initiative’s successes (and failures, I’m sure!) with the wider Wikia community and show them that it’s a smart plan for our shared mobile future
   
  +
Please talk this over with your admin team and let me know. I’m happy to answer any and all questions about this - please use my wall or just keep the conversation going here.

Hi QueenBuffy,
 
[[User:Marco dubrovnik|Marco dubrovnik]] ([[User talk:Marco dubrovnik|talk]]) 21:59, June 16, 2013 (UTC)
 
 
==Jamie and Cersei==
 
 
Random thought that I got when watching Westeros.org's recap of Season 3. You actually see this in the season 3 finale in that wordless shot of Cersei and Jaime, but it's this shocking realization when you get further in the books that you realize...Cersei doesn't really love Jaime as much as Jaime loves Cersei, and it's utterly heartbreaking to realize this. Partially it's because neither one was a POV narrator in the first two novels. But Jaime genuinely loves Cersei unconditionally, and when he makes that jibe to Catelyn in book 2 - that Ned Stark had a bastard son that Catelyn has to live with but he's only ever had eyes for Cersei, and thus objectively he's been more "faithful" in love than even the honorable Ned Stark ever was - Jaime earnestly meant that remark. They even show that in the series premiere; he barely even glances at the naked Ros. And in his head, in his POV chapters, at times when the Brave Companions are tormenting him, he laments and mourns and all he wants is to be in Cersei's arms again.
 
 
But the disgusting thing about Cersei that makes her really a more hated character than Joffrey eventually, is how shallow and delusional she is. Part of this is, as its often pointed out, Joffrey's insane, but what's Cersei's excuse for defending him? She's a sane person who deluded herself into loving her oldest child even though he's a psychopath, hypocritically claims to "love all my children" but all but ignores Myrcella and Tommen (the books...imply, that Joffrey may have sexually molested Myrcella and Tommen; or just sadistically tormented them. Much debate about that in fandom - there's a point when Tommen says he used to "go away inside" when Joffrey did "things" but gets interrupted, so we're not really sure the full extent of what exactly Joffrey did).
 
 
But anyway, what really breaks my heart, seeing it visually now, is how Cersei is so shallow with people she claims to love; they're just "extensions of herself" as the saying goes, and when they start to have thoughts and opinions different from hers, she sees it as betrayal. Or not living up to her fantasies. The thing the Westeros.org review pointed out is...and I think the makeup department does a fairly good job on this...Jaime looks like he's aged ten years when he gets back to King's Landing. Partially from being locked up in the dungeon of Riverrun for a full year, but also from the extreme stress of losing his hand. He looks completely haggard, no longer like the stereotypical "Prince Valiant" stand-in from season/novel 1. Moreover, he hadn't had the chance to shave his beard while as prisoner, and even after getting back to King's Landing, he doesn't bother to shave the full beard he's grown - without his hand he's not a full man anymore, so his feeling is why bother to shave? It makes him look older, not the smooth-cheeked prince charming he was. Moreover, he's got a few flecks of grey hair starting to grow interspersed in the blonde hair of his head and beard. Not a lot; he's like in his late 30's at this point - but from the stress. Maybe he can qualify as what women call "ruggedly handsome" (how would I know?) - but he's lost his boyish good looks. ---- and of course, on top of all of this, the loss of HIS SWORD HAND.
 
 
So looking at their review, I realize that the TV show nailed this: Cersei *didn't* start crying when she saw Jaime return, *didn't* rush up to call him a poor thing. She's outright *disgusted* at his physical appearance now, haggard and one-handed. Certainly Cersei always convinced herself she loved Jaime, believed she did, but you soon realize just how shockingly shallow she actually is. Jaime betrayed oaths and risked the damnation of men over his love for his sister (granted, brother-sister incest was something the Targaryen kings had done so they didn't consider it ''that'' crazy)....and after all of that, everything Jaime did, she simply starts to spurn him. And you see this from Jaime's POV and it's one of the most heartbreaking parts of the books....I mean on the scale of the Red Wedding, albeit drawn out over a long time (multiple novels) the falling-out of Jaime and Cersei is simply *painful* to read and you're sitting there stunned, just stunned along with Jaime at how shallow and selfish Cersei is. Keep in mind this is all part of her mental fantasy life: Joffrey is the great king, and Jaime will be his Hand of the King. Despite the fact that the real-life Jaime points out that 1 - he isn't good at politics and knows it, 2 - from a simple point of practicality, it would be too controversial to make him Hand of the King because he's the reviled "Kingslayer" and some of the other noble Houses wouldn't take kindly to that, 3 - Jaime doesn't even want to be Hand of the King, both because he firmly believes in the first two points (he's not that good at politics and he'd be a controversial choice), and because Hands tend to get assassinated (all points he explained in the first episode, a conversation moved from their sex scene later on in the book at Winterfell). Gradually you realize the significance of what we saw in that conversation; Jaime honestly ''isn't'' making a power grab as Ned fears, while what seems like Cersei chiding him to be Hand back in season/book 1 we later find out is this full mental fantasy she has of her nuclear family holding all the power at the royal court. She wants her mental construct of Jaime, not Jaime the real man, who grew disgusted at politics during the years he spent guarding the Mad King and saw politicians sit by while men were condemned to die.
 
 
At any rate, I'm happy the TV show didn't change this to some Hollywood-style "hurray you're back Jaime!" -- I hope the viewers noticed Cersei's odd reaction and thought it kind of weird. It will only get worse from here on out. Again, Jaime gradually turns into the most heroic of the Lannisters (he doesn't even consider himself a Lannister anymore, thus I can hate the Lannisters but love Jaime the Kingsguard, he's my second favorite behind Daenerys). He's the first one that openly tells Tywin to go screw himself, and Tywin has no idea how to react, because Jaime was always the "good one" of his children.--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 00:48, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

:While we're on the subject, Jorah is just a supporting character for Daenerys - albeit he appears in most of her episodes as Mr. Exposition - thus I think his spot should be bumped out in favor of someone else who had more prominent storylines in Season 3. If we remove Catelyn and Robb I think the logical replacements are Stannis and Margaery. As for the third to take Jorah's place, <s>why not Zoidberg?</s> I'd go with either Varys, or Brienne of Tarth.--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 14:24, July 18, 2013 (UTC)

Hi QueenBuffy!
 
 
I recently left [[User talk:Werthead|Werthead]] a message but didn't hear back, so I wanted to reach out to you with the same message. If there is another better place to tell the whole community, please let me know.
 
 
I am writing to give you some exciting news - [[w:c:video|Wikia Video]] has recently received some fresh videos on Game of Thrones. Many of the videos embedded on wikis come from sites like YouTube and often become unavailable when they are removed or taken down for copyright violations there. To help provide a reliable and legal option, Wikia has licensed thousands of videos for use on your wikis from several content partners. These are all found in [[w:c:video|Wikia Video]]. They are viewable worldwide and Wikia has the full license for these videos, which means your wiki can use them anywhere you like.
 
 
Through a quick search, I found this [[w:c:video:Category:Game of Thrones|set of videos]] for the Game of Thrones Wiki. Please let me know if you need any help adding them or your community, or have feedback on the videos. We are working hard to improve the content and tools for adding videos, so let me know your thoughts or if you have any questions.
 
Thanks!!

I need you to review "Version 2.0" of my writeup of this, sooner instead of later, I don't want to put it off until the end of Season 5, but to make it our "official position" and interlink with episode and character articles as soon as the other bureaucrats give it the go-ahead.

Your message Edit

I just read your comment on my page, you're right about the images not adding categories, sorry for forgetting haha :( I used to add them but this time I forgot for the images I lately posted :(

About replacing the images with higher quality, I didn't know I could do that. If I replace the same picture because it's in low quality, I'll replace the old picture like you said! :) And for the elongated images, OK! :) I usually leave them as they are when I replace the info box image, but now I'll start making sure it's elongated :)

Thanks for the advice! :)

Free Copy of Telltale GoTEdit

Hi QueenBuffy,

Since you responded to the blog post I made in regards to best unfair fights, I wanted to pass along a Steam code for you. It's for the game Telltale: Game of Thrones. Send me an email at nico@wikia-inc.com so I can give you a code :)

Ideas for additional codesEdit

Hi QueenBuffy,

It's me again :)

I wanted to ask you about some ideas we had in regards to giving out some free game codes for Telltale: Game of Thrones.

We have a bunch of codes that we want to give to the community and had some ideas about how to do it:

(a) Us adding a "pencil unit" calling out the latest "The List" blog post and the giveaway that's part of it on relevant pages: TT GOT overview page (http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Game_of_Thrones:_A_Telltale_Games_Series), TT GOT hub (http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Telltale%27s_Game_of_Thrones_Super_Walkthrough), the latest episode article page (for example, http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Sons_of_the_Harpy_(episode)). I can send you a screenshot of what it would look like on an article page

(b) Running a giveaway blog post (requirements to enter: log in, then leave a comment with your favorite GOT character) and then featuring that giveaway in the first slot of the main page slider for a few days?

(c) Lastly, would you mind if we updated the text of the community message itself when you change the Featured Programs section (so instead of sending the generic notice "Community Message has been Updated" it updates with context and a link)?

Let me know if your thoughts and concerns and please pass this on to any other admins you feel it should go to.

Filming locationsEdit

Why did you revert and ban the anonymous edits to Filming locations which added links to tour companies? And you banned their IP addresses. That's why there's a links section there - for tour companies to be added to. I don't think it counts as solicitation - though we do have to weed out the "good quality" tours from the small scale stuff just trying to latch onto the name.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 22:33, May 15, 2015 (UTC)

I just assumed it was spamming out to external sites. If we are going to allow "some" external links, we need to specify this in our policy. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 03:25, May 16, 2015 (UTC)

Birthday girlEdit

36? Cool. I hope you get stuff. No one remembered my b-day last time around (save my nuclear family) though obviously that's because I graduated and moved so it's not like I'm in contact with as many as I used to be.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 23:45, May 15, 2015 (UTC)

Yep, 36.. gettin' old! BAH! Thankfully most still think I am in my 20s. :)~ Well, no one would remember my Bday if it wasn't for Facebook. haha QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 03:25, May 16, 2015 (UTC)
Happy belated birthday!--Gonzalo84 (talk) 18:20, May 19, 2015 (UTC)
Aw, thank you!! But it was my "name day" really. ;) lol QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 18:25, May 19, 2015 (UTC)

Hall of FacesEdit

I think the article should be merged into the House of Black and White article.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 19:28, May 19, 2015 (UTC)

I think maybe just a "See Also: Hall of faces" at the bottom of the page? I don't know. I guess we can see what others think. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 19:34, May 19, 2015 (UTC)

Hi there! I’m Andrew, one of the community managers at Wikia. If you don’t know me, here’s my CC profile. I like baseball, laying on the beach with no plans or goals for the day, and climbing things.

We have a new beta project out, and since it's going to be critical to Wikia's future, we're asking for your help.

We want to partner with your community (and a couple others) and collaborate on a redesign of your existing infoboxes. It’s not a small task, but it’s one that we think we can get done relatively quickly and efficiently. Our engineers - both here in San Francisco and in Poland - will get hands-on with your community and work with your team to redesign the infoboxes.

You can read more here in the forum (and head to the sandbox to give it a whirl), but the tl:dr version: our current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and mobile is where Wikia’s growth lies. We came up with a solution that will take a bit of effort, but will pay significant dividends in the near future. What we're hoping is that we can use this community to test out its strengths and limitations while we get it from “beta” to “full feature”.

What you get out of the deal:

  • Wikia engineers who will work directly with your community to update the code that underpins your infoboxes
  • Access to staff for feedback, and our promise that your ideas will be taken seriously
  • A head-start on this change and therefore a significant upgrade in your community’s visibility

What we get out of the deal:

  • Several fresh sets of eyes that can help us understand how this will be used by the average Wikian
  • A test community that will let us track how the new infobox structure is used by visitors and viewers
  • The opportunity to share this initiative’s successes (and failures, I’m sure!) with the wider Wikia community and show them that it’s a smart plan for our shared mobile future

Please talk this over with your admin team and let me know. I’m happy to answer any and all questions about this - please use my wall or just keep the conversation going here.

InfoboxesEdit

Hey Buffy!

We'd love your help, but it's not 100% necessary. You have gorgeous infoboxes, of course, I should've complimented them before. We'd have zero interest in doing anything that would ruin them; we just want to get a better experience for mobile users.

I'd absolutely love to discuss with your other admins - who do you recommend I talk to? Do you folks chat together somewhere?

Promotion and Giveaway OpportunitiesEdit

Hi QueenBuffy,

I spoke with The Dragon Demands earlier this week, but he suggested I also ask for your opinion.

We are going to do a game code giveaway next week for the Telltale: Game of Thrones series. TDD said it would be cool if we switched from the 4th hub slider to the 1st for the duration of the giveaway ~6/19 and update the community message one time. Cool?

Another thing has come down the pipeline that MAY or MAY NOT actually happen, but I wanted to see if you'd be interested:

We are working with sponsors and partners to place certain content on fan communities.

This content could be, for example, trailers or behind-the-scenes videos and would live in a prominent place on all of the pages of your community. The placement is temporary (~2-4 weeks) and is only done with admin consent. This is a great way to get content that is relevant and interesting to existing fans as well as drive new fans to your Wikia community!

Here is an example of what it would look like. Its the image/banner above the slider.

Again, this isn't something we're going to do for sure, just want to know if you'd be interested.

Thanks for taking the time to get back to me,

Lock pages?Edit

Could you lock the Myrcella Baratheon, Stannis Baratheon, and Jon Snow pages? There's an edit war going on over whether they're dead or not that's dragging on. DRAEVAN13 12:09, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

#SCOTUSMarriage on the Main PageEdit

What do you think of my celebration idea?--Gonzalo84 (talk) 03:58, June 28, 2015 (UTC)
