UPDATE!!! I thought I'd give you a update on the new features implemented recently by Wikia. But before I'd like to remind you of the live chat with Tammy on readergirlz and propose that we come up with some questions to be asked. The chat is on December 16, that means next Wednesday, on 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern and in the middle of the night for Europe (so although I'd really love taking part I'm not that sure if I can make it, considering I've a test the next day, but I'll see how awake I'm next Wednesday).
Here are some questions I've come up so far:
- How is your progress on writing Mastiff, e.g. when can we anticipate with it being released?
- Regarding Duke Vedris' sons: Pressuming Frantsen/Franzen are the same person, is he the oldest or youngest son? What's the other one's name? While I'm at it: What was Lady Inoulia's husband's (Vedris' other son) name?
- Where is Lark originally from? She is mentioned to have a dark complexion, so she doesn't seem to be from Emelan.
Well, that's all I can think of at the moment. I know I had another question in mind, but I forgot (that's the readon why I wrote down those questions, as to prevent I'll forget those, too). If you come up with any good questions, just write a comment and I'll add them to the list.
Now for the second part of this post: New features--or rather a new feature, because the other new features don't apply to us (like the release of the new editor, which will not be released wikia-wide until next year). The feature I'm talking about is "WikiStickies". If you're using the "MyHome" page then you've certainly already noticed it, becuase it really can't be not noticed. It's in the upper right corner.
If you're wondering how the pages appearing there are chosen, I can only tell you that I've no influence on that (at the moment), as that's still an automated process. So you might have realized that most of the pages listed there as needing a picture can't really be improved by adding a picture because there are no pictures of, let's say, Corus. But still this feature might have its uses, especially once admins have the abilities to customize it. Fell free to browse through the stickies (its a loop of twenty messages, I don't know the frequency in which those messages are refreshed) and improve the pages listed there, especially those listed as missing.
If you've any questions or advice to improve the stickies or anything else around here, just let me know and I'll see what I can do. For more information about stickies you can also visit the anouncement page on Wikia.
Feel free to comment on this post, leave ideas regarding questions for Tammy at the chat, give your opinion of the stickies or say whatever else comes to your mind reading this.
UPDATE: Adding a question about Lark to the above catalogue.
