  • Pretty obvious revert, but I don't quite get the removal of the "ref" template in the ostentatiatory section. Unless it's because the last paragraph's references cover the whole thing?

    Thanks!

  • I joined the wiki mostly because I love the books and read the wiki when I am bored and should be doing work (got to escape the paperwork somehow). I am glad you appreciated my edits to the Hades page and I really appreciate the warm welcome I received. I hope to be a valuable member of the community. Thanks again.

    • Gotcha over on AVR’s wall. I’m not real active, but I’m technically proficient so if you run into any bugs or have site suggestions, toss ’em my way.

  • Last time I've heard about such things, the welcome message to new editors was signed by the admin who edited last. For the last few instances on DF, however, this does not seem to hold, since it has been you for a number of new contributors. Happen to know why? I'm curious, they must have changed something.

    • Good luck lol
      Also I’m afraid I may end up a bit inactive for a few days, not just here but on all of Fandom. Life calls.

  • Say, Ursuul, how do you remove the DEFAULTSORT template with autoeditpages? Tried didn't work that well. Thanks!

  • Should we do battles pages? The “Battle of Demonreach” seems appropriate, especially since you could attribute different names to different battles to cut down on confusion.

    The DF is one unending series of battles, but other than that, I've got no rational objection to list them. I'm not sure if we should introduce a cutoff line between the battles worth mentioning (two at Demonreach: #1 Carlos Ramirez against the Naagloshii I don't remember in which book - Turn Coat? and #2 the Wild Hunt against the Outsiders in Cold Days, then the battle at Chichen Itza in Changes should) and those who aren't (Lacuna kicking Dresden's ass in Cold Days probably shouldn't). Might as well try.

    finished necessary refs; is there a logic to the coin order? Perhaps ordered by introduction? I feel like I should alphabetize them for some reason. Also, in the books they capitalize “Fallen,” but feel free to uncapitalize it if you see fit AVR.

    No coin order I'm aware of. Go ahead and alphabetize them; if a reason to order them by introduction comes up, one of us can do it in a draft in his user space and move it to the appropriate page later.

    As for "Fallen" being in the books, I'll keep that in mind. I'm not one to capitalize things unnecessarily, but I'll do it given a good reason.

  • You're forgiven for editing so rarely here only because your edits are (almost!) invariably useful.

    I'm sure, however, that a hornless demon can find a better occupation than "maid". ;)

    • I'd love to be able to work and admin on at least Uplift and Alex Verus wikis, but the heyday of David Brin's Uplift novels was in the eighties/nineties, and Benedict Jacka's Alex Verus series has an even more restricted following than DF. So I'm not going to. ::sad smile:::


      "shortcomings and problems of a community;" that was a mistake of mine: "shortcomings and problems of a missing community"

      Of course DF wiki is a good one, it even has a few good people really working on it. Feels like DF fan's enthusiasm for the books is rather more subdued than other fandoms...

    • Eh, Diep.io sure as hell doesn’t have good grammar, & it has a community (albeit a small one). Dresden Files has a much higher standard, trust me.

  • Did you happen to notice what happened to the wiki features settings for the leaderboard? It appears the option to turn it on/off is no longer there - weird.

    • I liken Susan’s death to Lash’s. Susan knew what her choice meant, she just didn’t have the computational might to give it as much consideration as Lash did. Though in different circumstances & by different means, they both sacrificed themselves willingly & for good reasons, hence why I’m ok with it. Changes was one of the best books imo, things had become static (bad thing happens, Harry goes out & fixes it, then he comes back to his basement), but that threw everything in the air. As for my favorite characters, I’d honestly have to say Dresden himself. Ruling out the protagonist, I’d go with these:

      • Gatekeeper is my favorite side character/neutral character. He works like Winter does, doing a thankless job for all of humanity & though his motives are often misunderstood, he’s always doing what he thinks is right via skilled manipulation.
      • Nicodemus is my fevorite “enemy,” both because his character & drive are deep (he’s also a skillful manipulator looking at what he did to get Murphy to destroy Amoracchius) as well as because he’s just badass, but mostly because he’s badass (flying on a shadow?!!!).
      • If I had to choose one /good/ character as my favorite besides Dresden, I’d choose Bob.

      One character I’d like to see return is Cat Sith, but I think he may have died (it was Halloween).

    • Will have to go through Lash's death again, I don't remember much of it...

      Another character I like is Butters; it's a nice evolution from a cowardly runt of a man to someone capable of holding his own in a bigger game than he is. He also gets the girl, of course. <G> But then there are Michael Carpenter, and, even better, Charity.

      I never really stopped to think if there is a likeable antagonist, but it probably is Lara Raith. Manipulative, self-interested, of course, but she looks at the bigger picture; one can get along with her, if one's careful not to slip one's guard.

      Notice they've all got at least one redeeming quality about them, which Old Nick hasn't. I probably have let JB guide me in disliking him, Uriel notwithstanding; let's see what the future brings.

  • what's better? Two Separate "Description" and "Biography" sections or one merged "Description/Biography"?

    I've got the notion that two people worked on them, incommunicado.

    • True, but having more people looking into it can only help.

  • Ursuul, I need your technical expertise again.

    It appears that TOC has a relatively small, fixed width, rather than adapting to the length of the various titles therein. It looks like it is limited to DF wiki. Harry Dresden vs. Potter]. Any idea why?

    THX.
