==Editing==
 
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 !

Could you also advise me about video uploading in this wiki ?

::Wait, what page or part of the main page are these videos displayed on?--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 14:07, March 14, 2014 (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)

::I see now. They're not "must watch" because they linked to random IGN reviews.

::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. Just wanted to give you a heads up. :) [[User:JoePlay|<b>JoePlay</b>]] http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/joeplayground/images/a/a5/WikiaStaff2.png [[User talk:JoePlay|<font size="1">(talk)</font>]] 21:53, June 3, 2013 (UTC)

::Shit. Some of them were loaded directly onto this wiki, others are indeed ported over from Wikia itself. Well, convention panels, cast & crew Q&A, official trailers, and episode clips aren't bad in and of themselves...so long as they display properly, below actual content.

::Also, I think we should switch out the Beric Dondarrion image in the front page slider for one linking to House Frey: they're important again due to Edmure's wedding and have been in the background since Season 1 so casual fans might need easier access.--[[User:The Dragon Demands|The Dragon Demands]] ([[User talk:The Dragon Demands|talk]]) 22:08, June 1, 2013 (UTC)

: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)

Hey again! I'm not sure which photo you are talking about, the original, or the one I wanted to update with. As I'm sure you remember, I added a photo of Dany from 3x08 a few days ago, [http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/File:Dany_Second_Sons_bath_gown.png this one], which I experienced no problem with from the mods. And today I wanted to add [http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daenerys_in_3x09.png this photo] from the latest episode (3x09) but it kept getting reverted.

==Fan V Critic Videos==

Hey, Buffy! Hope you're doing well :) I just wanted to give you an update about the video series I contacted you about a while back. We're still hoping to do these fun fan vs. critic videos with help from Game of Thrones Wikia users. Brian (who you've talked to) has already reached out to some people as you know, but we think it would be nice to keep the community involved and thus maybe have them select fans to represent them in the series.
   
Apparently some of the images released for the Season 3 finale were actually leaked by accident from HBO. They've asked us to delete them for now. They can be reinstated after the episode airs.--[[User:Werthead|Werthead]] ([[User talk:Werthead|talk]]) 17:07, June 8, 2013 (UTC)
+
We were imagining maybe some kind of audition competition where people can try to prove that they are big enough fans to battle critics and it could include video auditions or something. We'd love to get your help on this, so, if you could let me know what you think (if the community would like the idea, if there would be good participation, etc.), maybe we can discuss a bit more. Let me know as soon as you can, thanks! [[User:Gcheung28|Grace]] <staff/> <small>([[User:Gcheung28|profile]])•([[User talk:Gcheung28|talk]])</small> 23:08, April 3, 2014 (UTC)
:Which ones? The screencap ones were from the trailer on the HBO site, so I doubt they mean that one. I think they might mean the one with Joff, Cersei and Pycelle in the small council room. I will start with that one. {{Template:Buffymybasset/sig}} 17:12, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

==Fan Brain Video==

Hey Buffy! Sorry to bug you, but, in addition to the Fan vs. Critic video I mentioned above, something we really want to do with the community is a Fan Brain video for the Season 4 premiere. I put up a blog [http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Gcheung28/Game_of_Thrones_Season_4_Fan_Brain here] talking about it, but it's basically asking users to share whatever trivia or Easter eggs they find while watching the premiere so we can compile the facts into a fun premiere celebration video! Once that's all done and the video is complete, is it alright with you if we add it to the Season 4 page and to the main page of the wikia?

Since you all on Game of Thrones Wiki are deep into chronicling the new season, we'd like do a Food Fiction with you all! (We [http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:The_Dragon_Demands#Food_fiction reached out to The Dragon Demands here] with the same request, FYI.)
   
==True Blood==
+
For each program, we start off with a blog post on the community, inviting users to nominate their favorite dishes in various categories. We'd need admin help promoting that post as well as help deciding what those categories should be. We were thinking some fun category ideas could be: Dishes by Region (Dorne, King's Landing, The Wall, etc), Dishes by House (Lannister, Martell, etc), or simply by course (appetizer, main dish, dessert). [http://adventuretime.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Asnow89/Food_Fiction:_Adventure_Time Here's an example] of that from our Adventure Time Food Fiction.
   
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)
+
Finally, we'll take the most popular nominees in each category and put them into polls by category on a post on Recipes Wikia. [http://recipes.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Asnow89/Adventure_Time_Food_Fiction-VOTE Here's an example] from the same Adventure Time FF.
   
: 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)
+
Does this sounds fun and interesting to you? And what categories do you think would be best?

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.

Hey! Would it be possible for you or any other admin to unlock the [[Shae]] page? I want to do an edit. :) [[User:Lionheartedcat|Lionheartedcat]] ([[User talk:Lionheartedcat|talk]]) 17:09, April 30, 2014 (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.
 
 
 
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)

==Fan Vs Critic Videos Section==

Hey, QueenBuffy! I was just checking in to see if you'd be interested in adding a Fan Vs. Critic section to the [[Season 4]] page for the videos we've been doing? It would be a nice archive for all the videos and a source that we could link to for users who see the blogs and who want to check out the rest of the videos produced so far. We could update it each week and then it would also be great if the community could link from the main page slider to this compilation page. Let me know what you think!

Greetings,

==Back==
   
  +
Yay! I was seriously getting worried you might be gone forever because we really need your help on here. You know more about Wikia stuff than I do, plus we've been badly short-handed.
   
  +
I explained this to other Admins but to catch you up to speed: I was "around" in the first half of Season 4 and worked on what I could, but my time was limited because I ''finally'' finished my thesis and passed my Latin and French tests. It was hard, but I will be graduating this month with a Master's degree in medieval History. So that ate up a lot of my time. But I've got more time now.
   
Can someone change or put my character in GOT, Season 3 Episode 10?
+
Let's see...the Wikia people started doing a "Fan vs Critic" video thing; I'm camera-shy so Greater Good volunteered.
   
  +
Other news is that I have completely redesigned the front page; we now have collapsible menus. I've started taking library sciences classes and a major point is about "access points" -- basically ''we'', the regular editors, know where everything is, but articles like "Heraldry" or "Currency", they wouldn't even know if those exist or not. Well I discuss this more on the Talk page of the front page.
   
  +
But I'm excited you were able to catch up, and I'm very curious: what did you think of Season 4 so far, both as a female viewer (you're the only female Admin here) and as a Lannister fan? This was very much the Lannister season; really the first time Tywin and all three of his children have been in the same location and playing off against each other, as well as two out of three of Cersei's children (and they're even mentioning Myrcella in dialogue a lot; Myrcella's one of my favorites but for things she does in later books as she grows up).

==Wikia's Video Swap Tool==
   
Like my character etc....
+
Hi there!
   
  +
Though you might already know about, I thought I’d remind you about [[Special:LicensedVideoSwap|Wikia’s Video Swap tool]], which allows you to very easily swap out YouTube videos embedded across your community for the [http://video.wikia.com Wikia] equivalent. It only effects YouTube videos with a matching Wikia video. Swapping out your videos for matching officially licensed Wikia videos means that the videos on your community are less likely to be taken down and rendered unwatchable.
   
  +
With your approval, I can go through and make these swaps for you — if you’d rather undertake this task yourself — or if you’re uninterested entirely — just let me know! I'll likely start making some of the swaps for you in a week, so be sure to let me know as soon as you can if you'd rather not make the switch."
   
Thanks

==Timeline policy discussion==
 
==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)

Our WikiasEdit

Hey Buffy! I was wondering if you wanted to be affiliated w each other? I'm admin of the Reign wikia now also :) --~ Lorisa! (talk) 08:02, March 12, 2014 (UTC)

"Must Watch" VideosEdit

Who has filled the bottom of articles with that? its visually cumbersome.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 04:26, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

Ugh, no clue! Did you check out History?? QueenBuffyPink crown 18:06, March 13, 2014 (UTC)
History has no record. The videos are embedded over at Wiki so it must be one of them. And while we are it, any news on the new background?--Gonzalo84 (talk) 19:01, March 13, 2014 (UTC)
Send me a link to a page that has the video you are talking about. I will ask about it. Also, I did contact Wikia Design about the background...that was last week so shouldn't be much longer :) QueenBuffyPink crown 07:45, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
For example: [1] And these aren't even official videos but IGN reviews--Gonzalo84 (talk) 14:00, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Wait, what page or part of the main page are these videos displayed on?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 14:07, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Go to any article and go to the bottom. Sometimes they even show up above categories--Gonzalo84 (talk) 14:29, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
I see now. They're not "must watch" because they linked to random IGN reviews. If anything, I wish we could replace them with the Westeros.org video reviews...actually the videos don't seem to be embedded adds, but videos loaded up onto Game of Thrones Wiki. Let's just delete them all.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 14:34, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Shit. Some of them were loaded directly onto this wiki, others are indeed ported over from Wikia itself. Well, convention panels, cast & crew Q&A, official trailers, and episode clips aren't bad in and of themselves...so long as they display properly, below actual content. I'd rather we didn't have them. But linking particular reviews like that is silly.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 14:44, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Oh yeah, it looks like it is just part of the "Around Wikia" boxed links at the bottom of each page too. Definitely takes up a lot of space. QueenBuffyPink crown 16:22, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Should we complain to have them removed? Again, at least the independent reviews which are not HBO-released material?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 16:28, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Would you like me to inquire more about them? Then we can go from there. QueenBuffyPink crown 16:31, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
Yes. The frelling "must watch" videos have now expanded into TWO FULL ROWS of videos.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 15:53, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Done! :) QueenBuffyPink crown 17:36, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
I think it would be a good idea to remind them of the promise they made to us last year about not making changes to the wiki without asking for our permission first...--The-Boy 11:28, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
Hey guys. Wikia contacted me and told me this is just a test they are running on certain Wiki's. Here is a link that explains more Must Watch Vids. You can also leave feedback there, so make sure you let them know how you are feeling about this new feature. QueenBuffyPink crown 17:03, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

At the moment the "must watch" videos appear on the right hand sidebar, pushing the "new photos" box and stuff several pagelengths down.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 04:57, April 3, 2014 (UTC)

Season 3 Recap VideoEdit

Hey, Buffy! We just finished up a Season 3 recap video that I put up in a blog here, and I was wondering if I could put it on the main page? It could maybe replace the S4 teaser or just go in that section with the other two videos. Let me know, thanks! Grace @Wikia (profile)•(talk) 17:29, March 27, 2014 (UTC)

As long as 1-2 latest trailers stay, I don't mind. I think up to 4 vids on the main page is fine. QueenBuffyPink crown 00:05, March 28, 2014 (UTC)

LogoutEdit

Am I the only one who keeps getting logged off every few seconds? I'm using Chrome.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 18:44, April 2, 2014 (UTC)

Everything fine with me (other than some damn family trees), I'm also using Chrome.

Fan V Critic VideosEdit

Hey, Buffy! Hope you're doing well :) I just wanted to give you an update about the video series I contacted you about a while back. We're still hoping to do these fun fan vs. critic videos with help from Game of Thrones Wikia users. Brian (who you've talked to) has already reached out to some people as you know, but we think it would be nice to keep the community involved and thus maybe have them select fans to represent them in the series.

We were imagining maybe some kind of audition competition where people can try to prove that they are big enough fans to battle critics and it could include video auditions or something. We'd love to get your help on this, so, if you could let me know what you think (if the community would like the idea, if there would be good participation, etc.), maybe we can discuss a bit more. Let me know as soon as you can, thanks! Grace @Wikia (profile)•(talk) 23:08, April 3, 2014 (UTC)

Fan Brain VideoEdit

Hey Buffy! Sorry to bug you, but, in addition to the Fan vs. Critic video I mentioned above, something we really want to do with the community is a Fan Brain video for the Season 4 premiere. I put up a blog here talking about it, but it's basically asking users to share whatever trivia or Easter eggs they find while watching the premiere so we can compile the facts into a fun premiere celebration video! Once that's all done and the video is complete, is it alright with you if we add it to the Season 4 page and to the main page of the wikia? Grace @Wikia (profile)•(talk) 17:55, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

Food FictionEdit

Hi QueenBuffy!

We've been running Food Fiction programs with various communities. You can take a look at all the various ones we've done so far here .

Since you all on Game of Thrones Wiki are deep into chronicling the new season, we'd like do a Food Fiction with you all! (We reached out to The Dragon Demands here with the same request, FYI.)

For each program, we start off with a blog post on the community, inviting users to nominate their favorite dishes in various categories. We'd need admin help promoting that post as well as help deciding what those categories should be. We were thinking some fun category ideas could be: Dishes by Region (Dorne, King's Landing, The Wall, etc), Dishes by House (Lannister, Martell, etc), or simply by course (appetizer, main dish, dessert). Here's an example of that from our Adventure Time Food Fiction.

Finally, we'll take the most popular nominees in each category and put them into polls by category on a post on Recipes Wikia. Here's an example from the same Adventure Time FF.

Does this sounds fun and interesting to you? And what categories do you think would be best?

​Thanks!

Hey! Would it be possible for you or any other admin to unlock the Shae page? I want to do an edit. :) Lionheartedcat (talk) 17:09, April 30, 2014 (UTC)


UpdatedEdit

Shae's page needs to be updated. --DevynC2 (talk) 18:02, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

UpdateEdit

Hey... been trying to get someone to do this for about a week now. Maybe you will see it. Shae's page needs to be updated... it is currently blocked.

Thanks. --DevynC2 (talk) 18:04, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

Fan Vs Critic Videos SectionEdit

Hey, QueenBuffy! I was just checking in to see if you'd be interested in adding a Fan Vs. Critic section to the Season 4 page for the videos we've been doing? It would be a nice archive for all the videos and a source that we could link to for users who see the blogs and who want to check out the rest of the videos produced so far. We could update it each week and then it would also be great if the community could link from the main page slider to this compilation page. Let me know what you think!

I hope to hear back from you

Thank you for getting back to me, I will add GOT Wiki into our affiliates now :-)

BackEdit

Yay! I was seriously getting worried you might be gone forever because we really need your help on here. You know more about Wikia stuff than I do, plus we've been badly short-handed.

I explained this to other Admins but to catch you up to speed: I was "around" in the first half of Season 4 and worked on what I could, but my time was limited because I finally finished my thesis and passed my Latin and French tests. It was hard, but I will be graduating this month with a Master's degree in medieval History. So that ate up a lot of my time. But I've got more time now.

Let's see...the Wikia people started doing a "Fan vs Critic" video thing; I'm camera-shy so Greater Good volunteered.

Other news is that I have completely redesigned the front page; we now have collapsible menus. I've started taking library sciences classes and a major point is about "access points" -- basically we, the regular editors, know where everything is, but articles like "Heraldry" or "Currency", they wouldn't even know if those exist or not. Well I discuss this more on the Talk page of the front page.

But I'm excited you were able to catch up, and I'm very curious: what did you think of Season 4 so far, both as a female viewer (you're the only female Admin here) and as a Lannister fan? This was very much the Lannister season; really the first time Tywin and all three of his children have been in the same location and playing off against each other, as well as two out of three of Cersei's children (and they're even mentioning Myrcella in dialogue a lot; Myrcella's one of my favorites but for things she does in later books as she grows up).

So I'm really interested in your reactions to each episode so far.

Wikia's Video Swap ToolEdit

Hi there!

Though you might already know about, I thought I’d remind you about Wikia’s Video Swap tool, which allows you to very easily swap out YouTube videos embedded across your community for the Wikia equivalent. It only effects YouTube videos with a matching Wikia video. Swapping out your videos for matching officially licensed Wikia videos means that the videos on your community are less likely to be taken down and rendered unwatchable.

With your approval, I can go through and make these swaps for you — if you’d rather undertake this task yourself — or if you’re uninterested entirely — just let me know! I'll likely start making some of the swaps for you in a week, so be sure to let me know as soon as you can if you'd rather not make the switch."

Thanks!

Season 4 finaleEdit

The Season 4 finale is upon us. The internet is going to explode after this one, on par with or surpassing the Red Wedding or Ned Stark's death. Enough traffic that the site itself might slow to a crawl, much less all of the vandals or random anonymous editors who need to tinker with it.

The hordes are closing in.

This is where we hold them.

Remember this day.

And sadly I JUST got to download it and watch it a few hours ago! I am a horrible Watcher of the Wall and shall hang my head in shame!! lol

The Snow Prince for Admin Edit

I have started a vote on the matter right here. Your opinion would be welcome.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 20:17, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

True Blood Season 7 Edit

Are we going to bother? I must admit, I'm tempted as it's the final season and I'm curious to see how it all will end (apparently, a major character dies in the first episode.) On the other hand, I was so drained by last year's awfullness... I'm not sure I've got the passion for it anymore. What about you? Good to have you back, by the way. :-) --The-Boy 13:59, June 21, 2014 (UTC)
