Hey Bad, a member from the esp wiki came to us to ask if they can use the content on our wiki and put it on their's, Ill post the link below. Just getting a yes or no from you and Spartan, but feel free to post thoughts on the thread.
Hey Bad, the wiki has left a message wanting to change the infoboxes we have to different ones. Right now I feel like the infobox we have now has been something we have worked to perfect, and give the information the users want in a way that also reflects Falling Skies, for example using the colours for their status, displaying the death picture and more. I strongly disagree about changing the infoboxes to the ones the wiki want, as I feel it is unfair to all the users who use desktop.
Agreed. Just removing the episode titles from the important characters' pages because I hate seeing them in a big list in the scroll ^^. I was also wondering, on other wikis I work on (namely Wookieepedia and Game of Thrones wiki) they use the reference points. Wouldn't it be better to switch to using them instead?
Also since you are an admin now, I'd like some opinions :)
Should we have these Cast tabbers on each Season page and do you think from you experiences, is there an easier way to display information on character pages instead of using the episode name > information layout.
I'm not a overly experienced Wiki manager and I've never really understood how to work a wiki, especially the templates so I usually base myself on previous used pages. I don't know if a there is any other way to present the episodes but I'll keep a lookout on other wikis just in case. As for the cast tabbers, I imagine your refering to the page CAST (Season 5) and the others like it? I personally don't see the point of these pages because the cast is already presented on the season pages.
I also think that, on Character pages, the way the biography is presented such as on Cochise's page (Season 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ) is good but the episode titles should be dropped and added in the text much like what is done on the Dornia page (In title, etc...)
I'll keep editing regardless because I'm in full Falling Skies mode at the moment and that will last for a while, until the show is over (although once it's over, I can't guarantee I'll remain as invested into the wiki: it happens in between shows and its even worse when its the last season ^^).
The trouble being, it's never over: just ask Tom and Weaver, they seem to have realized it ^^.
The really good thing would be for Falling Skies to become like Star Wars or Halo with an expanded universe behind it and (I so hope this will happen) the humans leaving Earth to go into space and discover thes other species that Cochise spoke about. Maybe even delve more into the origins of the Volm as warriors because, from the way they act, they don't appear to have been wariors all the time.
But you know what they say about wishful thinking ^^.
