Episodes leaked Edit

Just so you know, the first few episodes have leaked. From the screeners, one assumes. They're all over the torrent sites. So we should probably prepare for a lot of people trying to add photos from it, or information from the episodes, which is based on illegitimate means of acquiring the episodes. Anyway, thought you should know. —ArticXiongmao (talk) 02:22, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

Heads up Edit

HBO Canada aired the premiere last night by mistake - it was all over the fileshare sites before anyone could stop it... - Xanderen signature 12:04, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

.....(Long, silent pause)....


Burn them all.

Locked pageEdit

Why is the season 6 premiere locked? Is it to prevent the spoilers? I wanted to like help out and make a couple tweaks while watching the opening and end credits cause some people may not be included. S hannon434 (talk) 00:42, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

We don't edit live, that gets too messy. We unlock it the instant it finishes airing. Keep notes, that's what I do.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 01:01, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

Valyrian in The Red Woman Edit

I'm guessing you did not get the email I sent you last night, so let me repeat more-or-less what I said there: I promise you that in the Meereen scene in The Red Woman, both Tyrion and Varys are speaking High Valyrian to the beggar woman—OK, Tyrion is barely speaking any language at all, but he's clearly trying for HV: the first word is cearly supposed to be aōha, HV for "your," rather than ao, the Astapori equivalent (the Meereeneese equivalent seems to be osh, which is even further. I guess it is at least remotely possible that the second word he says is the Meereenese reflex of ipradagon "to eat," but I doubt it). Varys is likewise speaking HV: first sentence is something like zȳha Valyrio *qubēgrie issa (that word for "terrible" is new, so I'm not certain I have it right. We should find out for sure later today), whereas in Astapori it would be more like zya Valyre sa **quveghri(?), and in Meereenese... well, again, even farther.

So, why are they speaking in High Valyrian to what is evidently a very humble inhabitant of Meereen? Well, David J. Peterson has repeatedly said that he views the situation as diglossic. Basically, everyone in Meereen understands High Valyrian, even if only the nobles know how to speak it. He has explicitly compared this to the situation with Arabic today, where nearly everyone learns Classcal Arabic, at least for reading and understanding, but under normal circumstances speaks their native "dialect" (and assumes it's just a degenerate form of the language). Consequently, Dany, Tyrion, and Varys are all shown speaking only in High Valyrian, even when they understand Low Valyrian (Tyrion understands the bouncer in Volantis, for instance, and Dany understands everything Kraznys says), while most inhabitants of Slaver's Bay speak in Low Valyrian (the nobles occasionally use HV, I think, but usually they too use LV) but understand High Valyrian (e.g. Dany's speeches to the Unsullied, and the slaves of Meereen). The only characters shown not to understand HV so far (if I remember correctly) are the two shepherds victimized by Drogon... presumably there is less call for High Valyrian out in the hinterland.

The situation gets even more complex when you take into account the use of Astapori in Meereen, as I mentioned in my email to you, but we can save that for another day.

Anyway, I am really not sure exactly how the text in the episode description should be changed. I made some minor changes last night to indicate that they are in fact speaking High Valyrian, but I really wasn't sure what to do with the rest of your commentary on the sociolinguistic situation, and hoped you could figure out an appropriate way to rewrite that. Unfortunately even my minor edits have been undone since then. I mean, I guess I could go replace the text entirely with something like what I have written here, but it feels inappropriate to just wipe out all your work there, much of which is very good. I kind of hoped you'd help figure out what to keep and what to change.

Ack...I see now. Let me get to fixing this up...--The Dragon Demands (talk) 21:36, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

Oh! I should also add that the Red Priest was also giving his sermon in HV (just as the one in Volantis did). --Mad Latinist (talk) 17:15, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

re: Discussion at bottom of articlesEdit

Hmmm... Not sure what you mean by "it shouldn't" - it looks to be working as intended. If you're asking whether the feature itself can be 'turned off', I just checked into that, and unfortunately it's not currently an option.

Trystane Martell Edit

Hello Dragon. I have thought to write in the article about Trystane that he's still alive in the novels but that his death in the TV show could imply that he will die in one of the upcoming novels, would that be allright? --Exodianecross (talk) 18:14, April 27, 2016 (UTC)

1 - We have an article on "Ellaria Sand's coup in Dorne"

2 - NO. Nothing about what just happened in the Season 6 premiere gives us a prediction about the novels. Frankly, it throws Myrcella's death into question.

--The Dragon Demands (talk) 03:52, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

Do you think it can be generalized to other characters as well (Selmy, Selyse, Shireen, Myrcella, Doran, Hotah, etc.) - that their death in the show does not necessarily mean they will die in the books too? 06:14, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

They stated that Shireen will die in the novels. Otherwise we don't really have "proof" or even solid clues that deaths in the TV series probably correspond to the books (except maybe for major characters such as Cersei or Jaime; they will be following the broadest strokes). Don't fixate on this.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 18:57, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

I have understood what you wanted to say Dragon. Now let's see how it will go on in Dorne. --Exodianecross (talk) 23:02, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

Animals and plants portal Edit

Are you happy with it as it stands? - Xanderen signature 08:53, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

Great. Though are there any other more closeup images that can be used for Weirwood trees? current version is too zoomed-out.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 19:27, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

Nav Bar and other editsEdit

The "Oathbreaker" link on the nav bar under Season 6 doesn't lead to that episode page, it just leads to the deleted page with the mispelling. Also 6x04 is called "Book of a Stranger" so you can probably add that as well. Alcasinoroyale (talk) 20:18, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

Also, I mentioned this on the talk page for the "Home" episode, but nobody ever changed it. You have the episode written by D&D, but HBO confirmed that Episode 2 is written by Dave Hill. So that's something else to add. Alcasinoroyale (talk) 00:38, April 29, 2016 (UTC)


Wow, I was going to take it personally that you were online and didn't reply; now I understand why it took you five hours to do that. I thought I was on a Davos chapter :3.

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding but I thought I mentioned Asoiaf Wiki; you know the one that 2 people edit.. Aw yeah it's the topic of this conversation :).

First of all let me tell you that I'm really impressed; you surely deserve to be a bureaucrat admin. Did you have all this information about us in your mind, or did you just make a research? Because I assure you, you missed the conversation when I declined the offer to be an admin. They promoted me anyway, but I'm telling you, they were only bored of me asking them to delete or change the name of a page :P. I still pretend I'm not Admin though.

Surely you think this is irrelevant, but here is the thing.. some people make edits for the fun of it, not the title.

Now let's get back to our topic. I don't mind honesty in people. in fact I love it, so you don't have to apologize :3. The only thing that irritated me is that you read My conversations in My talk page.

All in all I agree with everything you said. I'm aware of most of it, I mean we are half started Wiki and we don't stand a chance against Weteros group. but hey who said we think of it as a competition? Again I personally like editing, then who cares if I'm editing at the top of the world, or some side pit at the bottom!

However, I've just noticed one more thing, I don't know if Weteros group are some self-centered group! but if linking asoiaf Wiki might anger them, then the last thing we'd like to do is cut off the coat tail you're riding. We definitely don't want to pull you down with us.

I'm not trying to insult you. But I get the feeling we're becoming good friends : ).

I'd like to thank you for bringing the Wret boy subject; I can see why you're angry about it.. We should probably file to Wikia asking for the demotion of LordSnow and Werthead; neither serves any purpose as staff there, and their presence as such does make the Wiki more unprofessional.


  • Joe and I didn't put faith in anyone, since there was no one to begin with. We don't feel abandoned.. at least I don't
  • I'm actually deeply upset that you didn't get the chance to get in an international airplane flights paid for by Wikia itself, to attend convention panels in the US, and take Selfie with the cast members in place of the Wret boy. you deserve better.
  • Thank you very much for your offer, I will surely think about it in the future, however I don't think you want me on this Wiki; although it has been very nice and informative to tlk to you, and I've met some other cool and cooperative users such as Xanderen, let alone how active this Wiki is.. Yet I'm deeply sorry; I haven't watched a single episode of GoT.
  • I know, major loss for the Wiki, but maybe when I start the series... since you mentioned an Open Invitation ;)
  • I'll let Joe know about your offer, you can expect an answer any time soon.

I know you think this was hard to read*, but I'm telling you again... I joined asoiaf Wiki aware of the situation I'm in; even Joe wasn't active back then. Maybe you'll find someone like me who thinks it's fun to edit, and not interested in a Selfie with the cast members.. See ya. May Kaiba (talk) 22:20, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

two pics Edit

I added two pictures... and I am proud of those two! I wish I had HBO (for those who aren't aware, I am a psychology student and I am basically broke lol) and could edit more freely. lol I hope you know, even if I am not around often, I LOVE this Wiki and I am here if you need anything, I will always stop in and check on things! I can always be a mediator lol. You guys are the best! QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 05:26, April 30, 2016 (UTC)

Absurdity the key word Edit

What an awesome message, thank you!

I did finally get a chance to view the episode... the following day. :) I was very disappointed in the Sand Snakes as well. It is obvious that Dorne is in chaos and WILL fail/fall from Ellaria's choices. Why kill Trystane? Because he would have been next in line? Simply because he was a male? They could have molded him into being a new, strong leader. Who will take Dorne seriously now? I totally agree with what you're saying on the misogynistic part.

The episode was a little anti-climatic-- though it did update us on most of the characters. I wonder when Bran will come into play, as well as Bronn... where is he??

Seeing a new Khal made me miss Drogo and Jason Momoa... but that is probably just a woman thing. ;)

I thought it was a cool reveal about Melisandre... it shows just how powerful the woman actually is. That said, I really hope she can bring Jon back in some way... his revenge would be so epic! I do hope we get to see Ghost tearing shit up too! haha

I'm sure you read about how the final seasons of GoT will be much shorter. Not sure how I feel about that. :( Actually, I do know how I feel about that... it blows. I don't ever want the show to end... though I don't want it jumping the shark either.

As far as being broke... yeahhh, every college graduate in America is, sadly. I've just signed up to go back to school myself... to get my masters in Counseling. I'm either brave or stupid... I haven't decided yet. haha

Candidates for Deletion Edit

Paul Andreson - seems to be a typo and/or unrelated to GoT. Can't find any Paul Andreson/Paul Anderson credited on the show.

Pauline Norton - same idea as above. Created by same user too.

Tulla Fyus - once again same idea, same author.

Iron Bank (talk) 05:18, May 7, 2016 (UTC)

The next two weeks are finals at school and I'm finishing term papers. This combined with the already heavy workload from Season 6 means my ability to get to work on here will be sporadic at best (frankly I'm already robbing papers of time by coming on here as much as I am).

I will get to further messages on my Talk page when I have a break between projects.

Thankfully this tight time situation will be over with by the halfway point of Season 6.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 00:53, May 8, 2016 (UTC)

Quick question - can I start adding the smaller shields and earlier versions of the shields as candiates for deletion? If so, should I just add the category "Candiates for deletion" and then you will review when you have the chance?

As you know, I am particularly focused on cleaning-up the shields on this site BUT I really do not want to step on anyone else's toes. Given that I would be recommending for work by other's to be deleted, I just wanted to double-check with you first before I started.

I would only add those files that were not used anywhere on the wiki. I wanted to start having the smaller versions deleted so that everyone to use the main-shield versions. It's easier to get everyone to use the main-shields if the other versions are no longer available to be used.

Hammerdown ProtocolEdit

Perhaps you can write a short tag or something explaining the Protocol.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 04:05, May 11, 2016 (UTC)

"Hammerdown Protocol is a scorched earth code-name wherein the U.S. military decides to cut it's losses and destroys, through carpet bombing, the U.S.'s own territories and/or cities that are deemed lost to enemy forces."

Changes to the Main Page Character PortalEdit

I think "Reek" should be renamed "Theon". And with Roose dead, who do you think should be take the new spot? I'm more inclined towards Gilly or Jorah. Any ideas?--Gonzalo84 (talk) 06:18, May 13, 2016 (UTC)

I was pondering this as well - Gilly or Rickon? Depends on who gets prominently used next episode I guess.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 06:20, May 13, 2016 (UTC)
I think we should use Rickon. Gilly is always with Sam, and it doesn't look like they will appear much this season, probably only 3 or 4 episodes. I think we should swap Roose for Rickon, but put him in the first row where rest of the Starks are. Blackfish can be put somewhere in the lower rows. --Gladiatus (talk) 12:18, May 13, 2016 (UTC)

Television footer Edit

Hi, The Dragon Demands!

Would you be interested in having Game of Thrones added to our television footer program?

Sigils of Dornish houses Edit

Hi, were you going to delete those sigils we discussed earlier? Just making sure you haven't forgotten :) (And who knows, maybe I'll make another attempt and do the job more properly in the future) --CrappyScrap (talk) 17:15, May 14, 2016 (UTC)

Great News. But I'm starting to reach the point I realize I'm running out of time. Freaks me out that I'm as old as my mom was when I was born.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 18:32, May 15, 2016 (UTC)
I think about that too.. that as I get older, it means so are my folks :( Scary thought. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 15:40, May 16, 2016 (UTC)

House Stark, "Kingship" or "Lordship" Edit

Hello Dragon. In "Book of the Stranger" we heard Sansa and Jon talking about the "Warden of the North", there was no mention about the "Kingdom in the North"! Shouldn't the Inbox of House Stark be changed accordingly? It seems that the "Kingdom of the North" with Robb as independent king is more or less buried. Therefore Bran and Rickon are just lords and Sansa and Arya are just ladies! --Exodianecross (talk) 16:33, May 16, 2016 (UTC)

Right now they're just fighting for survival and don't have a firm plan. Even in the novels with Stannis in the North, they don't waste that much time debating "is Stannis going to be king over the North or not" once he just starts attacking the Boltons. They'll figure that out later, and so shall we.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:39, May 16, 2016 (UTC)

Bastard letterEdit

I think that article should be simplified following our time-honored format: an "in-universe" section for the show version and the "In the books" section for 'book-to-screen' comparison.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 21:40, May 16, 2016 (UTC)

I tried to do that. I'll move it around.
Actually this was my attempt at consolidation: rather than have a gigantic notes sub-article on "The Red Woman/Mutiny at Castle Black" or a huge sub-section on "Mutiny at Castle Black", or a giant notes section on "The Red Woman/Ellaria's Coup in Dorne"...
I realized it might be easier to segregate off the controversial mess onto its own dedicated topic articles: that is, "Bastard Letter" and "Ellaria's Coup in Dorne" will contain all of the comparisons/differences, so we 1 - aren't redundant 2- don't use up a lot of space for other stuff on the episode articles.
Oh I didn't think the current version was perfect, it was getting the ball rolling.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 21:48, May 16, 2016 (UTC)
If a "controversy" section proves to large we can have sub-articles (like with the infamous Jaime/Cersei scene) Titled "Article title/fan reaction" or "Episode title/Reaction to XXXXX scene"Gonzalo84 (talk) 21:57, May 16, 2016 (UTC)

Okay. Er...I think we'll be refining this thing for a couple of days so if anyone doesn't like parts feel free to revise them.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 22:04, May 16, 2016 (UTC)

Back in the GameEdit

Hello again, The Dragon! I've had three previous accounts on this wiki, namely User:Aetherium, User:The Snow Prince and User:Asguardian, so I wonder if you (or any other administrator who sees this) could redirect those articles to my new account? I would very much appreciate it! – Mel Sailor (talk) 06:41, May 17, 2016 (UTC)

Love it!! Thanks for sharing that info. Stuff like that ALWAYS interests me and I Am always looking at the numbers under our Admin link. haha QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 23:05, May 17, 2016 (UTC)

Footer Thing Edit

Hey Dragon, I haven't edited a lot lately but I was checking in and noticed the footer thing.

I was looking through it, and I think it's kind of unnecessary and lengthens the home page. It's at the very bottom of the page, which to be honest, I doubt anyone really has any need to go down there, and it appears it would contrast greatly to the color scheme here. That's just my thoughts, it doesn't really matter, but you know, your choice, just my thoughts. How are you by the way? Played the game yet?

Here's a few examples:

Regards, InGen Nate Kenny (talk) 23:17, May 17, 2016 (UTC)

Robb Stark Edit

Do you remember where GRRM made the comparison you mentioned? If we could find it, it should definitely be added to the article. (For the record, of course I agree Robb was a shitty politician xD ) --CrappyScrap (talk) 22:21, May 21, 2016 (UTC)

...not a specific quote, but what comes to mind is the special feature in the Season 5 Blu-ray about "real life history and Westeros" and they talk about how characters were based on King Edward IV of England (Richard III's older brother). And GRRM is one of the commentators. And I mean the comparisons have been drawn before because they're very obvious: young Edward IV was a lot like Robb, this dashing young warrior king...then as Edward IV hit middle age, he hated the business of actually ruling and became this drunken glutton like Robert Baratheon. I don't have an exact quote but it's a point brought up repeatedly: neither Ned Stark nor Robert Baratheon were particularly good at politics despite being good warriors and generals on the battlefield, and like them, Robb Stark ends up getting politically outmaneuvered due to his own failings (losing any potential alliance with the Baratheons, losing the Karstarks, then losing the Freys was his biggest blunder).--The Dragon Demands (talk) 02:48, May 22, 2016 (UTC)
Fair enough. It's not that I disagree that Robb was a bad politician, but I felt their failings were different in nature. But if its coming from the big man himself, it's gospel :P Cheers! --CrappyScrap (talk) 11:48, May 22, 2016 (UTC)


Hello I was wondering if Trivia sections could be added to character articles, trivia is a great idea especially when people want to know quick facts about the characters. Just a suggestion. Bree 08:44, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

Generally we call those "Behind the scenes" sections, not "Trivia". They go immediately above "In the books".--The Dragon Demands (talk) 15:49, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

Watch this guy! Edit

I've had to undo every one of his edits so far because they are spoilers. Shaneymike (talk) 12:34, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

Update from leaks Edit

While I'm already bothering you - is there any rule that prevents me from adding information from an episode before its premiere? --CrappyScrap (talk) 14:32, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

Explicitly. It is forbidden to update character articles with information from leaks...that's why they're called leaks!--The Dragon Demands (talk) 15:27, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

Alright. I felt the spoiler policy was a bit unclear on that, but maybe it's just me :) Cheers, --CrappyScrap (talk) 15:53, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

Don't update anything from a new episode until it finishes airing, which is at 10pm Eastern Standard Time. If one of the international broadcasters screws up like HBO Nordic and airs it earlier, that's their fault, not ours.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 16:02, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

- Copy that. Cyanide3 18:22, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

Hello the dragon demands, I was recently banned on my account "zillez" for adding details of an episode before it was released. I now realise that was a huge mistake as it was a spoiler and i had no intentions of trying to spoil he episode and merely wanted to be the first one to edit it. I have now read the rules and will never do something like this again and edit before the official release. I really appriciate and love this wiki and hope you can give me a second chance. Thanks, zillez.

No. You should have known better. You will remain banned as an example. A smarter man would just make a new screenname and pretend that he never edited here before nor refer to this incident again.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 14:26, May 23, 2016 (UTC)

I actually do feel the rules should be clearer on this point (especially with 10pm Eastern Standard Time in mind). Feel free to believe I'm being the devil's advocate on purpose, but I honestly think it's an easy mistake to make for a keen and well-meaning contributor. --CrappyScrap (talk) 22:07, May 23, 2016 (UTC)
I agree, this is an extreme, uncalled for response - the episode wasn't illegally leaked... it was uploaded by HBO (albeit by mistake). A simple clarification of the rules with a warning not to do it again should be enough... not permanently banning a new, good-faith contributor. - Xanderen signature 09:39, May 24, 2016 (UTC)


Maybe an Indefinite ban is a little extreme for this situation. {{SUBST:User:Byzantinefire/Sig}} 00:22, May 24, 2016 (UTC)

The taunting was too far - and he'd had warning bans for stuff before that.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 00:27, May 24, 2016 (UTC)

House Mazin Edit

It looks like the unidentified banner at the Battle of the Bastards (blue and white checks and gold rings) will be House Mazin. I'm separated from my personal computer at the moment, so I don't have access to my image editing program, or any of my template files, but I will get started on this when I can (although I don't mind if anyone else wants to have a crack at it). - Xanderen signature 09:45, May 24, 2016 (UTC)

I was wondering that. It's similar to a Stormlands banner so I don't know. Strange.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 03:15, May 26, 2016 (UTC)

We'll soon find out. Hopefully we'll get canon GLover heraldry as well. - Xanderen signature 10:11, May 26, 2016 (UTC)

Affiliates Edit

Can you do me a favor? I need to add Affiliates somewhere on this Wiki.. It may be and I'm just not seeing it. I thought about putting it on the Nav bar? QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 02:52, May 25, 2016 (UTC)

Ack. I need to get to this....--The Dragon Demands (talk) 03:18, May 26, 2016 (UTC)

Favor - Please Delete Old Shield & Banner FilesEdit

As you might remember, I have focused on updating all of the pages so that they all use only one version of a shield to bring consistency across the wiki. I have made a lot of progress and a significant number of shields (and almost all the banners) are no longer used anywhere on the wiki.

Can you do me a favor and delete the no longer used shield and banner files (I've added all of them to the category: Candidates for deletion)?

That way we can prevent anyone for re-using these versions in the future. Plus, it makes it a lot easier to see where the old versions are still used if they are not mixed in with all of the shields that are no longer used.

Finally - it looks like almost all of the old versions still being used are part of family trees (with several also being used in the Battle templates, which I am slowly updating). So at some point the family trees will need to be unlocked or someone else with access will need to update the shields.

Regards Ser Shield McShield (talk) 22:30, May 25, 2016 (UTC)

If you are going to delete Victarion, do the same for Willas and Garlan Tyrell seeing how it's the same situation with those pages. Killuminator (talk) 18:33, May 27, 2016 (UTC)

Stark navboxEdit

I was wondering if you could possibly update or give me permission to update the stark navbox please  Bree 16:47, May 29, 2016 (UTC)


I've contacted you some times ago in order to learn how you put links in the middle of a page.

I was talking about this links [[1]]

Can you help me? I'd like to do something similar in my wiki too.


Can you please update the Navbox for House Stark and House Bolton??  Bree 12:21, June 23, 2016 (UTC)

TV series retcon: Daenerys can control dragons?Edit

So does what happened in tonight's episode confirm what I think it means? In the books Daenerys can't control her dragons, but in tonight's episode she's doing just that: telling Drogon where to go, when and where to land, and he's not attacking anyone... DRAEVAN13 01:58, May 30, 2016 (UTC)

Did Aegon II tell Sunfyre to come to Dragonstone?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 05:00, May 30, 2016 (UTC)

New sigils Edit

Just a few quick sigil related matters:

  1. Once again, the art department at HBO have used AWoIaF as a direct reference - the Tarly sigil on Randyll's chest is an exact copy, although the fine details can't really be seen, due to the dim, candle lighting. However, the banner from the Purple Wedding can also be seen on the wall of the dinning room. That being said, I would recommend keeping the Tarly heraldry as it is for now (maybe I could adjust the colors slightly?)
  2. Should I create a new Kingsguard shield with the crown enclosed within the seven pointed star of the Faith?
  3. As I hoped, the trailer for next week gives us our first look at the sigil of House Glover (I'm working on this) with Lord Galbart played by none other than Tim McInnery! - Xanderen signature 12:07, May 30, 2016 (UTC)

1 - I've noticed that and it actually contains some errors.

2 - ...hold off on that until we see where they're going with this.

3 - Oh yes, I jumped for joy at Glovers. No longer will some noob come on every other week adding a fanart Glover sigil.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 13:28, May 30, 2016 (UTC)

Jaime's statusEdit

Since Jaime's been removed from the Kingsguard as of the latest episode, isn't he technically Lord of Casterly Rock now? DRAEVAN13 13:45, May 30, 2016 (UTC)

....good question. I think they just removed him as Lord Commander. Dunno.

Memorial DayEdit

Due to the Memorial Day holiday in the United States, everyone is at home using the internet. The whole internet infrastructure is therefore slowed down to a crawl.

My ability to edit for the rest of today will be sporadic at best, in between random points when my internet turns back on.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 14:49, May 30, 2016 (UTC)

Mainpage episode templates need updating... Edit

This is a pretty big wiki so it makes sense they're protected. Its Monday so it should be good for updating.

Anyway, {{Latest episode}} and {{Next episode}} should be Blood of My Blood and The Broken Man.

CornettoMan Edit

Can you have a word with this user please? He won't follow the Image Policy and is ignoring his talk-page. - Xanderen signature 21:40, May 30, 2016 (UTC)

any idea Edit

Any idea who this is? I am going through all the pages that need images...and her page perplexes me. She doesn't even have an IMDB page. Thoughts?

Also, Is the Margaery actress really going by "Mummer" ? I don't see that anywhere. I see her casted as "Theatre Troupe Actress Margaery" What do you think? If not Mummer, I need to change up some of her page, and titles of her pics, etc.

QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 20:07, May 31, 2016 (UTC)

This seems to have a good clue:

So probably one of the prostitutes in the brothel that Salladhor Saan was in where Davos found him to recruit him to sail for Stannis. Maybe.

Sv Game of ThronesEdit


I am the admin on Game of Thrones wikia in Swedish. I wonder how I make links from this wikia to the Swedish. Kindest Regards K10rca12 (talk) 09:55, June 2, 2016 (UTC)

Yes. I have repeatedly tried to contact Wikia Staff about this but received no answer. They need to create the ability to interlink. We didn't use to have automatic links to the Japanese wiki, but later they created them.

I'll ask them again.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 00:45, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

Editing "Blood of my Blood"Edit

The edits you made are full of mistakes:

Why do you insist that Sam stabbed the wight in its heart? He did not. That mistake appears on other pages, like the wights page. Read the book and see for yourself.

Patrek Mallister is not "the eldest son" of Lord Mallister.

It is not written anywhere Blackfish has 200 soldiers. Jaime has nerly 1,000, the Freys - 2,000, but how many soldiers Daven Lannister and Forley Prester brought - unknown. So there is no number to divide by twenty. Just because it is written in the ASOIAF wiki, it is not necessarily correct.

Coldhands did not enter the cave - he couldn't for the reasons he and Leaf explained.

And so on.

No one expects you to learn the books by heart, but it can expected to check the books before making the edits - let alone when the editor is an administrator. 15:56, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

As I explained, I wrote the whole thing up in one big burst, offline because my internet was down, and thus I was unable to doublecheck.

Yes Patrek is Mallister's only son.

...I knew Coldhands couldn't directly enter the cave, I must have worded that confusingly.

I honestly remembered Sam as stabbing the wight through the heart, but I will check now...

....AWOIAF says that Blackfish has 200 soldiers. I will have to double-check where they're getting that?

Thank you immensely for the corrections, I can't be everywhere at once.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 19:07, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

Okay I made the other three correction, and I just checked: Sam never stabs the Small Paul wight directly in the heart. He was wearing chainmail which turned the blade. I have no idea why I thought this, I must be mentally combining it with some other point when a wight was stabbed in the heart with a normal steel blade.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 21:36, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

Bad image template/category?Edit

Do you think we could benefit from a bad image template (well, this wiki doesn't do the top-of-the-page thing AFAIK) and category? Just for grainy, badly colored stuff. AllHailTheFirstOrder (talk) 19:09, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah that could help. I won't opposite you implementing one.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 19:34, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

  • How is "Articles with images of poor quality" for a category name? AllHailTheFirstOrder (talk) 19:42, June 3, 2016 (UTC)
...Why not just re-use the existing "Image Needed" category?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 19:49, June 3, 2016 (UTC)
    • I don't really mind, although I only suggested that in case there was a difference between "Image needed" being just about articles without images at all. In this case it would be articles with bad images. But one for both is fine, imo. AllHailTheFirstOrder (talk) 19:52, June 3, 2016 (UTC)
My line of thinking is that with only one category we'd only have one to check. And yeah we need hundreds of images. Well, if an image update is badly needed make a post about it on the article's Talk page, that's a quicker way to get attention.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 20:00, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

I'll just go with "Image needed", then, to keep it all in one place. Usually I might just go back and correct a bad image (like Robb Stark), so it's good for reference as well. And I'll start adding to imageless articles, too. AllHailTheFirstOrder (talk) 20:03, June 3, 2016 (UTC)

Failed betrothals in family treesEdit

I just saw the email alert with your comment "that isn't a festival". I guess that makes sense (it's not really meant to "commemorate" or "celebrate" anything), but I still think it was good for the page. If anything better comes up in the future I'll re-insert the section.

Blocking policy Edit

Hi The Dragon Demands,

I apologise for troubling you but I just wanted to raise something that might sound difficult. I notice that you and the other administrators seem to have a tough policy of blocking several anonymous users infinitely. I am aware that they have committed vandalism, spamming, and other unacceptable behaviour. I don't condone such actions. However, I am concerned it might sound pretty harsh because those are public accounts which get swapped around depending on the IP address. Perhaps, we could have a formal blocking policy guideline like what Wookieepdia has.

Let's say a maximum of three or six months for anonymous users as a suggestion? I occasionally edit here. Have been editing quite a lot with Season 6. Please don't take this criticism personally. I appreciate the hard work that you and the other admins have put into make this Wiki a credible online encyclopaedia for everything Game of Thrones. It is just a suggestion from an outsider. Perhaps, this is something you should discuss with the other administrators and the community. Please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. Andykatib 09:55, June 21, 2016 (UTC)

I have already replied to this, so it is a closed subject and don't worry with it. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 00:52, June 22, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, IP addresses shift after a while; may be better to block those for 1 year and not infinite.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 14:52, June 23, 2016 (UTC)

I have sent you a raven Edit

Please check your personal email. :) QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 00:51, June 22, 2016 (UTC)

blocking policy Edit

So I wrote up a quick blocking policy, however I cannot figure out how to put it on the nav bar. Where do we edit the "On the Wiki" section. Every other section you can edit/find, but that one. I'd like to put it there. Any ideas? here's the policy. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 02:33, June 22, 2016 (UTC)

The ForsakenEdit


I just finished reading the released "Forsaken" chapter. If you need the link it is:

I think that in view of the information revealed in that chapter - about Balon's death, that Euron committed three kinslaying, what he used to do to Aeron and Urrigan, etc. - the "In the books" section of the pages of Euron, Aeron, Balon and kinslaying should be updated. Maybe not about Aeron's current status because it is kind of spoiler (I'm not sure), but at least about the fact that the books finally reveal who killed Balon. Since those pages are locked I can't do the edits. 12:31, June 22, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah I read the Forsaken stuff when it came out the other week. I just didn't get around to updating everything yet, we're busy with the end of the TV season.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:42, June 22, 2016 (UTC)


Hi. Im a new user on the wikia. I uploaded some images for "The Winds of Winter" but it's locked. Since your a Beaurecat, I was wondering if you could upload them onto the page for me. Thanks

Lola987 (talk) 15:09, June 23, 2016 (UTC)

Load them up into a "gallery" format on the Talk page for the episode, it makes it easier to cut and past them all in at once.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 15:11, June 23, 2016 (UTC)

Please check your own talk page Lola987, as I left you a message about our image policy here. You uploaded every image that is already on the page, therefore I had to delete yours. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 23:19, June 23, 2016 (UTC)

Just thought I'd drop by to give you a friendly reminder to cross Ramsay off your list of your death list.Shaneymike (talk) 04:20, June 26, 2016 (UTC)

I didn't exactly enjoy the poor writing that lead to his death in the TV show.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 05:08, June 26, 2016 (UTC)
Poor writing?Shaneymike (talk) 10:51, June 26, 2016 (UTC)
Poor writing. All elements of Ramsay antagonizing the North's lords like the Manderlys who will eventually turn against the Boltons were removed. Instead they invented that Ramsay raped Sansa, anticipating that this would therefore make his death more satisfying...that's just simplistic, lazy writing.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 14:47, June 26, 2016 (UTC)

Image alignment Edit

Image thumbnails are supposed to be evenly distributed throughout the article, correct? Left, right, left, right, and so on. Not all aligned to one side of the page? - Xanderen signature 09:00, June 26, 2016 (UTC)

Generally. You're supposed to use your own judgement, though, as in some cases it might bust up the paragraphs in a weird way or it would make sense to stack two together for comparison - obviously it doesn't work on short pages, etc. --The Dragon Demands (talk) 14:45, June 26, 2016 (UTC)

If I could interject quickly... we usually try to keep all images aligned to the right. It just looks neater, makes paragraphs easier to read without images on the left breaking things up. Hope this makes sense. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 22:39, June 26, 2016 (UTC)

Post Season 6 To Do ListEdit

My vaunted "To Do" list of ongoing tasks on a years-long timetable for the wiki as a whole is separate, and already on my userpage.

This is just a quick rundown of particularly major things which need to be updated which came up in Season 6.

Notice that I don't really focus on character pages such as "Jon Snow" or "Sansa Stark" philosophy is that 1 - People know to edit character pages and episode articles, but casual editors are less likely to put in the effort to edit wider stuff, 2 - The main character pages such as Jon Snow and Sansa Stark have been "laying fallow" for a few seasons now, without oversight, and "fix up the character articles" was already a major item on the Overall To Do List before Season 6 began. So Season 6 didn't really change that very much, that's happening later.

Because I was busy with school then death in the family, here's what needs to be done:

First, need to go through all interviews and information materials, which I lost track of. Straightforward though tedious: I went through's news archive and make a list of links to every interview or behind the scenes report which I need to read. This season they split up the "Inside the Episode" features: instead of being 10 minutes each, they now have 3 minutes focused purely on Benioff and Weiss interviews....then the behind the scenes production type information is segregated into new, separate "Behind the Throne" videos, one for every two episodes (because every two episodes had the same director for each). Also, briefly, Peterson's language notes posts, which he did briefly this year on Tumblr. This is all straightforward data-mining, though it is time consuming. Thus:

  • All Season 6 interviews
  • All Season 6 production videos
  • All language notes posts from Peterson

Next we have several large action set pieces, battle articles. The battle article series as a whole has also been "laying follow" since before Season 6 and was a major item on the main "To Do List" anyway, so we don't need miracles here, just a decent job while sifting out the weaker edits from when dozens of people were trying to write on them all at once:

  • Battle of the Cave of the Three-eyed raven
  • Burning of the khals
  • Second Siege of Riverrun
  • Second Siege of Meereen
  • Battle of the Bastards

Next we get into the hardest ones: major thematic updates:

  • Bastard letter - meant to be our "in the books" summary for all the changes to the Mutiny at Castle Black arc, instead of repeating ourselves on every page, we link to this.
  • Ellaria Sand's coupe in Dorne - meant to be our "in the books" summary for all the changes to the Dorne arc, instead of repeating ourselves on every page, we link to this.
  • Tower of Joy flashbacks
  • Melisandre (with updates about her age reveal in the premiere)
  • Night King/origin of the White Walkers
  • Little birds
  • Hodor
  • Kingsmoot
  • Update all family trees and make sure they conform to standards
  • The Bloody Hand/Mummers pages
  • Timeline issues

Also some minor updates:

  • Lyanna Mormont (a popular page)
  • Castle Cerwyn
  • Meribald/Elder Brother/Ray
  • Sam as a maester and Oldtown (probably more of this in Season 6 finale)
  • Abe Lincoln viz Tyrion
  • Is Daenerys fireproof, or did they just really want to split one scene into two scenes?

These are what will be worked on in the first week or two after the finale. Then I move back on to the main, overall "To Do" list.

At the end of the main "To Do" list (which was nearing completion before Season 6 began), we move on to major review and refinement of every character page (House pages count as character pages). These are meant to be quick: not definitive versions, just cleaning up what we already have. I.e. no "research", no rewatching episodes to see what Jon Snow does - purely reading the Jon Snow article and making sure the grammar is coherent. This is meant to be a quick fix task instead of lasting all summer, or even until Christmas break.

And then, my god, we'll be at the point I've been hoping for since Season 3: actually rewatch the show from the beginning of Season 1, one episode at a time, slowly analyzing every aspect of each episode - we were sort of able to do this in Seasons 5 and 6 but much of Seasons 1 and 2 the wiki was still relatively small and we were writing basic stuff like "this is what 'Meereen' is". Actually start with the histories and lore from Season 1 onwards - it's basically five episodes worth of material much of which we already covered, so doing that first just to be definitively done with all of it, exhausting all possible information. Then I move on to episode by episode. I've never listened to any DVD commentary I can't afford them, but I'll grab a copy from my library.

I don't think I'll probably be finished with the episode rewatch project by the Season 7 premiere next February, but maybe nearly so. And the idea is to tune up the relevant other articles like character pages as I advance episode by episode (i.e. rechecking the Theon article when watching Season 2). To be honest, I didn't watch Season 2 very well; Season 1 a family member downloaded, Season 2 I watched half as streaming and half as youtube clips, and only by Season 3 did a family member lend my their HBO Go password to be able to watch normally. So there's a lot of stuff from back in Seasons 1 and 2 which remains buried and escaped notice.

The goal is to finish everything by next February when the next Histories & Lore comes out, but I don't think I'll get through that many seasons by then, or even by the Season 7 premiere itself. But we will be nearly so. Next summer we'll be totally caught up.

I don't know. The ultimate goal of course is to be in such a state of readiness that I can sit down and re-read all the novels from the beginning, I haven't in years. It will provide a lot more context and information.

At this point yeah there are only two seasons left, but you plan how to win tomorrow's war during today's battle. I no longer see Game of Thrones as "a TV show" but as a franchise, and this is preparing the wiki for the inevitable prequel projects: a Dunk and Egg TV series and maybe a Dance of the Dragons prequel series.

Patiently working on "the plan" as I've been since late Season 1 or so. Like Hari Seldon's Foundation, the plan continues.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 21:58, June 26, 2016 (UTC)

Jon's parentageEdit

I think all this talk of Jon marrying into the Stark family to secure the North on the "Winds of Winter" page might be a bit premature. Only Bran knows about Lyanna having a child, so unless he makes it back to Winterfell no one but Bran will know the truth. I think we should wait until next season for that. DRAEVAN13 16:21, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

Well yeah, it's only talking about possibilities.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:08, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

chill out about the men😂 Edit

Based on facts on the iron islands, Pyke and the rest of the regions, and if you look extensively into their lore, you'll find that they are generally capable of raising around 10,000 men, these facts are easy to find mate...

If they're that easy to find, quote them, or I'm going to ban your account. That isn't how wikis work.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:52, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

Greyjoy Military Power Edit

It turns out I was actually wrong, but the Iron Islands are actually capable of raising up to 25,000 forces. Quite surprising actually, and in one of the more "obvious" sources for this,can be found at this link: But the problem is that there are so many sources and sites for this that it is impossible to link them all, search them for yourself if you like. --Thekingindanorf7 (talk) 18:07, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

ps. please don't ban me, it looked empty without showing how many forces the Greyjoys could muster, I simply wanted to fill in the holes, but that time I was wrong.

1 - Leave this blank, do not attempt to add it back, but I won't man you for it.

2 - The numbers in AWOIAF desperately need to be updated; read their source citations; they're citing a decade-old RPG game which was semi-canon to begin with; we don't trust those numbers. Only use a direct reference to the novels.

So really just avoid the "Military Strength" stuff for now.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 18:15, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

I'll leave the Military strength alone Edit

Ok thanks :) I'll just use this site to research game of thrones rather than edit.--Thekingindanorf7 (talk) 18:18, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

If I may. I am well aware the edits on the Rhaegar Targaryen page are getting annoying, but reverting my edit completely removed him from the Family listing once again as I had added it back after some edit war of several other users adding him in and out a whole bunch of times. May I suggest to just officially list him as "bastard son" or "possible bastard son" and lock the page from edits? Otherwise users like sharky will keep removing every single edit done adding him in, and sharky is well known for going on people's nerves by just removing edits all the time because there might be a small possible chance the content of the edit is not 100% correct, like in this case Rhaegar is 99% likely the father of Jon, but not necessarily, it hasnt 100% been confirmed. BUT. Based on this way to argue you could list benjen stark as "possibly deceased" because he has not been confirmed to be alive after the episode. He might have been hit by an asteroid minutes after leaving bran. Thats the kind of edit fight we're facing here. Never seen Sharky do an edit going as far as this, but he has gotten quite close to it already actually. but i dont want to point fingers, its not just him, many users do that. Anyways, sorry to have bothered you. I know the whole story can be quite annoying, edit wars on many pages after every single episode... Shado47 (talk) 18:23, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

Eventually yeah; need a week or two for people looking up characters who died in the finale.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 20:35, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

We have 25 slots, six major characters just died. Olenna and Ellaria are back in as faction leaders, and might as well put Edmure in there too as major surviving Tully.

Candidates for thre three remaining spots are:

  • Missandei
  • Grey Worm
  • Gilly
  • Bronn
  • Qyburn
  • Gregor
  • Meera
  • Podrick

Going by the general rule of "don't double up related characters it wastes space"...Podrick is kind of with Brienne a this point, Meera is with Bran, ah crud they're all "with" someone else.

Bronn has been recurring so long and is popular enough that he deserve a slot.

The other two I'm not sure: Qyburn is important now, Gregor to an extent, albeit they double up with Cersei. Gilly kind of deserves one for being a recurring character for so long. Plus Missandei and Grey Worm deserve some time in the sun, tough choice.

....whimsically I'd go with Gilly, Missandei, and Grey Worm, just because people like them more and they're distinct enough.

I'll replace them next week once finale blows over.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 15:41, June 28, 2016 (UTC)

Jon's Page Edit

I opened it for about 15 minutes while I was on, but then locked it up again. You may want to do the same, it's up to you... there is just so many people wanting to add stuff that shouldn't be'll have to keep an eye on it. I went ahead and allowed his father "Rhaegar - speculated" in his infobox, since it is obvious Ned isn't now. I just don't want too much of it coming off as a spoiler, like changing his last name to Targaryen, etc. lol. I'm sure you'd agree. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 04:00, June 28, 2016 (UTC)

I just finished up the episode notes. Moving on to Jon when I get home from interning today.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 12:10, June 28, 2016 (UTC)
I made some corrections on the article intro, which looked a bit cumbersome so I separated it into two paragraphs. Then I added another paragraph bout his true origin in the Background section.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 17:04, June 28, 2016 (UTC)
If I may interrupt - will the users be able to contribute to or comment on any of these changes being made (prior to the unlocking, I assume)? I cannot really tell if you're going for a full rewrite, or just some quick changes in the intro paragraph and the infobox. Reddyredcp (talk) 18:00, June 28, 2016 (UTC)

Oh yeah. I just haven't been able to turn my "full attention" to it; a dozen people rewriting it leads to a pile up. Going to sit down tonight, straighten things up, and then just keep track of every subsequent edit in case someone puts in something poorly written.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 18:43, June 28, 2016 (UTC)

Article changes - your input Edit

Hi Dragon, Not sure you remember me - been off awhile, now I'm back regularly. I have made some changes to the [Gregor Clegane] and [Benjen Stark] articles, after giving detailed, supported and justified reasons on the relevant talk pages. As one of the top admins on the wiki, and as the person I usually look up to when it comes to making edits, I would like to hear your input on it. It is obviously not a priority, but if you had a few minutes to spare for an opinion on the matter I'd appreciate it. I hope you agree with me. Thank you!

Best, --EchoesOfTheTower (talk) 13:18, June 28, 2016 (UTC)

Ratings Edit

WOW!!!! OMG! I feel like we need to tell staff or something! haha QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 01:06, June 29, 2016 (UTC)

Why not? It reminds them we do this for free, you know. But I need to get to the Jon Snow article now that I'm done with the episode article and i'm back from internship in city.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 01:08, June 29, 2016 (UTC)
That damn Jon Snow article is going to be the death of me. UGH. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 01:10, June 29, 2016 (UTC)

Why's that a specific problem? I mean it's a lot of work but I should be done later tonight.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 01:23, June 29, 2016 (UTC)
The specific problem was editors hounding me to unlock it... when given the reason I couldn't.. that didn't suffice and I got more of an earful. It was just tiring. QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 01:24, June 29, 2016 (UTC)
