I'm not sure if you would even remember me but I spoke to you in an unkind manner a couple years ago, when I was 14, and I wanted to apologize to you, personally, even if this means getting my IP or whatever blocked. I'm sorry for my actions and you have every right to block me again but I wanted to tell you I was sorry first, now, as a grown 17-year-old.
It happens, I'm just glad you grew from the experience. I have unblocked the account, but if you plan on using this account ur talking to me now... I'd advise you close the other account for good. The link below will show u how.
No worries! :) Likewise, it takes guts to do what you did. Some people forget that admins are people too and that we aren't getting paid for this job. We do it cause we like it. So talking to us in a calm and civilized manner goes a long way.
This gives away the information that has yet to be revealed.
By allowing this type of spoiler info to be on the episode pages it makes the wiki virtually useless until a viewer has watched the entire series without. It makes looking at the episode wiki pages after viewing those episodes to dangerous for fear of unwittingly spoiling future plot points.
The kind of information such as Nathan's real identity is appropriate for the character page but not for a episode page in which that information has yet to be revealed.
Notes and Continuity sections should only reference from that episode back not forward.
Users currently watching the show for the first time should be aware that character and other aggregate pages will reveal spoilers ( due to the nature of those type of pages ) but they should feel free to view each episode page as they progress through the series.
At the very least spoilers info should be the users choice to see ( there are several methods that can be used to accomplish this ).
I have seen this type of thing a few times on episode pages as I have been progressing through the series and following along on the wiki. I would take it upon myself to edit out the spoilers as I progress through the show but is appears most of the episode pages including the "Birds of a Feather" are locked so I'm unable to make any changes. And anyways if I have to edit out the spoilers myself well.... then it's too late for me not to have it spoiled.
So your saying if your new to the show don't use the wiki?
The entire show is available via Netflix, DVD's and other means so there is still and will continue to be new viewers to the show.
I understand it would be a lot of work to go thru and check each episode page for this, I'm the main admin for the Archer Wiki and there are no where near as many episodes as for this show, so believe me I know, however it can be done.
If you don't want to make the wiki user friendly for new viewers could you ask one of the other 5 admins if maybe they could make a pass of the episode pages?
Other possible options could be unlocking the pages so when someone like me comes upon spoilers we could remove them for other new viewers or you can make me an admin which would give me access to edit the locked pages and I will do it as I watch thru the show ( it will still suck for me but I can at least could fix it for future viewers).
This is such a nicely put together wiki it would be a shame if it was only good for users who viewed the show as it was aired.
So far you're the only one to find a fault in it. We have a 24 hour no Spoiler and that's it. Thank you for the suggestion, but we'll leave things as are. You're just putting words in my mouth now since I'm not saying any of the things at all. It's also not about the amount of work you claim it'd be. Sounds like ur just power hungry if making you an admin is immediately what you jump to...
So as stated above by Fearless Diva, we do have a spoiler policy on new episodes in that info shouldn't be shared 24 hours. But since the series ended last year, everything is really fair game. New readers are given the "read at your own risk" choice around here, so ultimately it's your decision if you decide to keep reading knowing that you will receive spoilers.
The Perfectionists is really up for air, be maybe we can incorporate a "spoiler" warning. We already have one for the series' page, as you can see right away.
As for the Birds of the feather spoiler, I agree that it's a spoiler given way too soon and have now deleted it. Feel free to message me on any spoilers like that.
Has editing infoboxes actually changed in any way at all? I was going to edit Toby's infobox but I oddly could not edit in any way. I also cannot edit the infobox that is on my own, personal profile. Was the wiki involved in a huge update in any way or is it just my computer?
To be an admin, it takes a lot, a lot you don't have (as of yet). In a big nutshell, you need hundreds if not thousands of edits (we mostly care about quality edits, though). You need to have been on the wiki for months if not years to establish yourself as a long-standing member who can respectfully engage with users and with admins. And form some trust and friendships with me and the current admins (interwiki talk and help on our affiliate wikis or wikis we frequent a lot is also greatly appreciated and can help). Already having a user rights position on here like a moderator for example ups your chances.
It may seem a lot but if you truly dedicate yourself and work edit by edit, you'll get where you'll want to be. However, at the moment, we aren't looking for any new admins. The most I can tell you is that, if some of our admins are still inactive by 2019 when the spinoff premieres, Selena will demote them and appoint new ones accordingly. New administrators will be decided by us, but only if they meet the standards in the previous paragraph to the best extent. And right now, there is a batch of very eligible users who are far above you in talent that are a good fit for eventual adminship.

What he said!! Also, I'd like to add that in the future, immediately going to a new wiki and ask for admin rights starts u off on the wrong foot. Not that I think your power houngry Office Rec, but thats how it comes across. It's better to come to us and ask... I am new member of this wikia, how can I help?
Love the new dark color scheme! Feels like A could be skulking around any corner ;) Also makes things pop out more and adds a more sinister vibe which is apt for the inclusion of Ravenswood in the PLL Universe.
Hey Diva! I was wondering how you felt about me creating pages for the original Miranda and Caleb? There's a lot of information on them, and they were seen throughout Ravenswood. The only thing I'm not sure of is how to title the pages. I was thinking, "Miranda Collins I", but wanted your opinion first on whether or not you wanted a page for them, or if you had any input on how to name them :)
I was gonna make this a different thread but I wanna both you guys to see my suggestion. Since threRavenswood characters have pages most have character navi on their page but other than the ones that appeared in Grave New World they aren't on the character navi, so I thought what abount a Ravenswood character navi for theRavenwood characters outside of GNW and assuming TP characters would props get their own.
Wait I'm confused. Do you mean navigation boxes, or change the navigation header on the wiki? If it's the navigation box, then yes but make sure it looks exactly like the newly redesigned boxes.
If it's the navigation header, I suppose we can take a leaf out of Riverdale Wiki's book and make tabs like "Pretty Little Liars," "Ravenswood", and "Perfectionists" and put their respective characters, episodes, locations, etc, in it. It can clarify that we have not just PLL but are including Ravenswood and Perfectionists to our viewers. But we keep the "Books" and "Community" tabs of course. Again, if this is what you're taking about, I can make a preliminary setup on my test wiki and direct you guys to it.
Okay, while I like the idea and think it is needed, I think it should match the coloring of the other Nav boxes. The purple is a little bright/overpowering, especially with the white border. If you can match it to the other Nav-box then I'm all for it. This is just my opinion.
Stop it Selene and you know what stop it Jay, I am going to apologise for the transgressions I made but you know what? You're not blameless, you accused me of blanking out pages which I did not, I've tried countless times telling you that but you refuse to listen. I'm only going to post this one final time and after that do what you want, but I'm going tell you this: My father had died I was broken, shattered and I was all over the place,ok? I'm sorry if I was harrasing you and I'm not making this up as an excuse, I told you before he died and I tried to tell to you again and again why this happened but you wouldn't listen. So when I told you and you didn't believe me, calling me a loser and a sad person doing this and doing that, I got angry, you didn't even say "I'm sorry for your loss" or anything you just insulted me and didn't even care. I'm sorry if I was mentally unstable at the time.Isn't that what you want to hear? How much I suffered, how much I felt like I sould've died instead of him? That is what you want to hear isn't it? Because honestly, I'm done, completely empty and when you told me those things I felt hurt because you wouldn't let me explain and after everything that me and my family went through I needed to escape from it.
There that's it, that's the stonecold truth, believe it or not do what you want I'm hurting and I thought you would understand but you don't, because let me tell you one thing: Everythimg me and my family have been through you'll never experience it. Better off just trying to.
So Jay, tell me how would you feel if people started calling you loser troll, saying "This user has no life", "God rejected this asshole", "This loser needs to stop? Would you be upset because you're life is falling apart or would you act all "Hey yo know you're tight I'm lying.4
And you don't even say "I'm sorry for your loss", and don't tell me " I don't know you so why would I tell you that?" Here's a tip, you say that to be polite, so the person doesn't burst out in tears. And there were even people trying to stick up for me other users and you blocked them too.
So after telling you this, do you ahve the audacity to tell me I'm lying?
I know I shouldn't expect you to believe or forgive me, but my dad died, and i'm never gonna see him again, (EWIGTH), I know that gives you a great deal of joy but for the first time since we've talked just act human for once.
I noticed that the picture on The A-Team is incomplete in terms of members identities
Would it be possible that we could change it to this:
And perhaps even have a tabber for the image section where it has an image for The A-Team and click the other link for The A.D.-Team. I have made a second image for A.D., but we don't have to do the tabber thing if it doesn't fit with the page.
I've discovered an error with infoboxes and hyperlinks. For example: on the black widow page it has Black Widow Real Identity: Sara Harvey, and that is hyperlinked, however due to the new theme the hyperlinks blend in with the infobox so they're completely invisible.
As a workaround, Echo suggested using this code when doing hyperlinks so they are visible, I've tested this out on the A page for the characters names (if you don't like that edit I'm happy to undo it).
I'll hold off doing it on other pages until the method has been approved
