TPW TalkpageBanner hell

Feel welcome to leave me any messages on this page. I'll be sure to read and respond to them appropriately. I've found that headings for your concern and signing of your messages with --~~~~ helps a lot in keeping track of things, so I would be doubly pleased if you remembered those two points.

As of June 12, 2011, I've decided to use a response policy as described above in the yellow box. As an additional sitenotice: The {{Talkback|Username}} template on the respective talk page fulfills the purpose that you or I will get the notifications that there's a new message, so please don't forget the template.

All messages up to the end of 2010 can be found in the archive.


Regarding the new style

I like the changes that u have been making.Tortall wiki looks very nice. I have one concern however,it is that the writing has become very hard to read,maybe change the colour to something less bright and more....prominent.


thanks --Lyra 15

Keeping me Posted

I appreciate it. However, it's now clashing with the blue background in the edit revision history box. I'll see what I can do about it, but thank you for telling me.Denizine(Blog|Talk) 17:00, January 1, 2011 (UTC)


Yes, that's what I am looking into. For my first Idea, I'm adding more white and opacity to the background and reverting the link color to a brighter blue(for me, it is difficult to tell apart link from text now), and that might work. What do you think?Denizine(Blog|Talk) 20:08, January 1, 2011 (UTC)


Alright, I have found my how to and am working on changing the background.Denizine(Blog|Talk) 20:38, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

Done. What do you thionk, more orange or yellow or brightness or what?Denizine(Blog|Talk) 20:59, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

Glad to see the transparency is right. Though regarding the history box I may or may not be able to modify that. Adjustments galore in photoshop have gotten me nowhere. I am however about to test the tool set of GIMP. That one might be useful with its unique Colorize tool. Denizine(Blog|Talk) 21:28, January 2, 2011 (UTC)


Hey, sorry I've been gone. Anything come up in my absence?Denizine(Blog|Talk) 05:50, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

Tamora has answered questions

Hello,

I was just thinking that since you seem to be the main editor of this Wiki I should tell you about this page: http://www.randombuzzers.com/the-buzz/boards/topic/118390/#post_118390 where Tamora Pierce has been answering questions. Some of these answers add information about what happened to characters (Kara and Kourrem e.g.) or other facts which concern the books.

Thanks. I knew of Tammy's attendance at randombuzzers but needed a little prodding to getting to add the new information. I've tried to get most of the new information, if you stumble across anything else feel free to let me know or add it yourself. --PurzelTalk 20:19, March 11, 2011 (UTC)

Heads-Up

Just a heads-up, main page ads are being turned on for this wiki. Because of this, I've made a change to the main page in order to avoid a placement conflict between the content and the adspace. Without this change, the ad would display on top of the current content, blocking it from users. Obviously, you are welcome to make further adjustments as you see fit - this is just a "quick-fix" to avoid a visual conflict. Please feel free to contact me on my talk page if you have any questions, comments, or issues.

New page/stub

Will you please help me set up a Michabur Durse of Queenscove page?

MOHE 17:35, December 19, 2011 (UTC)

Purzel, how do you make an article a stub?MOHE 14:20, December 22, 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry for the late reply. I wasn't near an internet connection in the last weeks. I'll get to creating a new page for Michabur Durse of Queenscove later today.
You can mark an article as stub by putting a {{stub}} on the page.

Main Page Changes

Hi! My name is Lexi and I'm a member of the Wikia Community Development team. This is a gorgeous wiki, and I absolutely love the color scheme. I would love to help you make it look even prettier by reorganizing the main page--I wouldn't touch the skin though, it's fantastic! Does this sound OK to you? I won't destroy any content on the wiki, of course. If you want to see a sample of my work, I completely made over this wiki.

LexiLexi 22:43, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

Of course. Feel free to improve the main page in any way you consider appropriate. At the moment I'm quite caught-up in real-life and don't have as much time as I'd want to take care of the wiki, so any help is really appreciated.

Book Series affiliation?

There's a cool series by Maggie Shayne and I think it might be a good idea if the Tamora Pierce and The Portal Trilogy (http://theportaltrilogy.wikia.com/wiki/The_Portal_Trilogy_Wiki) wikis could be affiliated since they have similar audiences! Let me know if you'd be interested since it could raise traffic for both wikis :)

Wikia's Fantasy Fellowship

Hey there!

Wikia is hosting a "Fantasy Fellowship" to commemorate The Hobbit and Hobbit Day!

We're delivering exclusive content via Fantasy Fellowship and we would love it if Tamora Pierce Wiki participated.

Check out this blog on how your community can get involved!

Thanks :)

Purzel,

Thanks for the message! I like this site. I feel like I should make changes, but everything seems to e covered already. :) Alright, i'll message you if necessary, but I don't want to annoy you. 

     Thanks! You're very welcoming! :)

Hi Purzel, I've been doing a lot of editing lately and I was wondering what you've been seeing for problems on my pages (I feel bad leaving all of my mistakes to you), and what I can do to better them. I've also been on the site for a while but I've never really been involved and I'd like to be now.

Thanks!

Mk101 (talk) 16:29, July 22, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Mk101, I noticed all the work you did lately and I really appreciate it because I don't have much time to edit anymore. I didn't actually correct mistakes, but mostly only added categories to pages and made some adjustments to the code (my education leads me to being obsessed with thinks like where to enter spaces in a text). Sometimes the visual editor makes curious things and puts the spaces in the wrong places, so I corrected some of those. I usually avoid them by using the source editor, but that's only a personal preference of me and you're free to use whichever editor you want; the "mistakes" the visual editor makes are usually not obvious when a visitor looks at the page, so that's really just my obsession and nothing you need to worry about.
I'm also grateful you want to be involved more. As my time is so limited at the moment (though I might be seeing a few months of a bit more leisure time), I'm glad for any help. It's early morning here and I'm on ly way to university, so I don't really have time to thinks about a specific way for you to be involved more (apart from the edits you already do). I'll think about it and get back to you later. If you have a more specific idea feel free to let me know (as well as any idea you might have to improve the wiki).
--PurzelTalk 04:39, July 23, 2013 (UTC)

Haha yeah, I can completely understand not having any time :) In September, I'm going back to university too.

I'm not sure, I think for now I'd like to just edit a lot of articles (I've been focusing on the Emelanese Universe so far, but I might go to the Tortallan Universe soon) because I'm still getting a hang of the inctricacies of editing and the Manual of Style and so on. If you have any ideas then let me know :)


Sorry, forgot to sign the above message,

Hi Purzel,  I was editing Mequen Balitang's page yesterday and I noticed that it still has the stub marker on it, even though it looks filled out enough to me.  I was wondering how you would remove the stub notice.  Thanks, Beka of Pirate's Swoop Beka of Pirate's Swoop (talk) 21:51, August 20, 2013 (UTC)Beka of Pirate's Swoop (talk) 17:24, August 22, 2013 (UTC)


Hi Purzel, I accidentally created another page for The All-Seeing, called All-Seeing — because it was linked wrongly in another page. It would be great if you could delete All-SeeingMk101 (talk) 18:01, December 23, 2013 (UTC)
