It would be wonderful if you could join our newly created Facebook-group for better communication among staff! If you don't want people to know your true identity, you can easily create an account with a nickname or alias. You don't have to share anything you're not comfortable with :-)
This is an idea which I've discussed with some of the other staff members. As you know, many of the references to Disney on the show are visual, such as Jiminy and Archie carrying an umbrella, just like the Disney version of the character; Snow White interacting with blue birds like in the Disney film; Ariel interacting with a fork, Gothel's Rapunzel disguise being dressed like Rapunzel from Tangled and holding up a frying pan, etc.
I've been toying with the idea of changing the format of the page and include images, not just from the show but from the Disney films as well; in other words, showing these references rather than just describing them. What do you think about this?
On a side note, I noticed some people who brought items from the Once Upon a Time auction are now reselling them on eBay. I figured since they are no longer affiliated with iCollector, who – if I recall correctly, asked us to pay $500 per image, we should be able to upload pictures the seller has taken themselves (Of course, with permission from the seller). I've begun emailing a lot of them, and they've all agreed so far, as I have mentioned I would link back to the original listening as credit. So, hopefully, that's okay with you. xD
I did notice they were one of the eBay users selling a lot of OUAT Props. I have contacted them, but I have yet to receive a reply. Only some have replied back to me so far, so I'm hoping more do, including Probabilia. xD
Oooh, good news! Propabilia has replied to my message and said as long as we don't remove his watermark and credit him, it's okay (I went ahead and created a template; so we can add it in the licensing section when we upload the images).
I think it would be best to create an "Unseen Pages" gallery for Authors' Books and put it there, because this page does not appear on-screen. There is an excerpt from "The Pink" on the back of the storybook page that Lucy finds in "A Taste of...", but it is different from this one. There are also several excerpts from "The Pink" in Wish Rumple's prison books (both unseen and on-screen), but none of the pages match the one from the auction.
I also plan on creating an Unseen Pages gallery for the prison books, since there are several unseen pages from Probabilia, which are linked to in the Trivia field. Unless you beat me to it ;-)
By the way: There are many extra props pictured on their website, as seen here; you should upload them as well :-)
I was over-analyzing screen captures from "A Taste of the Heights" and "Leaving Storybrooke" in an attempt to try and see if the prop matched "The Pink" excerpts in those episodes, but I was getting so annoyed by it. >.<
Oooh, I know! I plan to do the eBay ones first, and then I'll go to his site and upload those. xD
I was keeping an eye on what Propabilia was selling and there was something on there I could afford so I ended up bidding and winning a few of the gold coins they used on the show. (File:206-605-716Prop1.jpg) xD
They'll take about a month to arrive here, but I'm excited. Also, while I have you here, do you know which episode this ring is from? (File:UnidentifiedProp1.jpg) I thought it was the same one Mr. Gold has always worn since the Pilot, but Propabilia has that one under his sold category. Then I figured maybe two rings were made, but the one from the images has different etchings on the band. So now, I do not know where the hell to put the images. xD
As for the rings: Sorry, I have no idea... It might be a good idea to create a separate gallery for props and clothing that we can't place. It's the only solution I can think of at the moment (although in Gold's case, you could study his gallery, but that might take a while...).
I actually did study his gallery, as well as Robert's gallery for the promotional photos and I could not place the ring anywhere. My second idea was to make a separate gallery but I didn't know what to call it? xD Because there are a few items I wasn't able to place so I couldn't upload them on here. >.<
The only name I can think of is "Unidentified Episode Props". We could format it in a way where there are different sections; "Clothing and Accessories", "Book Pages", "Weapons" etc. We can also put a notice on the page, explaining the point and help identifying the correct episodes. What do you think? xD
Sorry to bother, but this user has been bothering people on other wikis, asking them to post videos of them blowing bubble gums, as you can see here, here, here and here. He recently messaged both Claire and Lola. I was going to go ahead and close the threads, but decided to bring the matter to one of the admins first.
I am watching this user. It's not exactly harassment at this point, so taking action isn't necessary. If Claire or Lola feel like they're being bothered, they're always welcome to close the threads themselves.
The template was coded by KillianJones, who is no longer with the Wiki. I've looked at the template, and I am unable to deduce how the template was made with an image for the background. I'd recommend asking Utter solitude, as I think it might have to do with the CSS.
A few ordinary items (Eric's cloak, Cinderella's glove, Smee's hat) were added to the List of Minor Items because they were enchanted; others, like Emma's scarf from 408 and Mary's necklace from 604, have not been added, despite the fact that they also were enchanted. Personally, I think that we should remove the items which were only temporarily enchanted and make it a rule not to include those, and keep the items which were permanently changed into magical items (such as Smee's hat).
There is already a discussion about this in the comment field, here, although it has been inactive for a year now lol. I think it's time to settle this; I've spoken to Utter and AppleGirl and they agree with me, but I want to hear what you think as well. Of course, you don't have to agree with my suggestion just because the other two agree :-) Please let me know what you think.
Thanks! That's me, you, Applegirl and Utter, as well as Schroeswald (one year ago, as seen in the comment field). The discussion has been open for over a year, so I consider the matter settled. Now off to implement the new change :-) *whistling*
