  • Hi Lily. Just wanted to let you know that the location tabs on the home page, has a link leading to the Dark Palace, which is a deleted redirect (unable change it myself).

  • Hi Lily, I have yet another update. As of right now, this community will migrate forums around the fifth batch. As this community currently doesn't have discussions enabled, it's probably the best to wait for the migration to occur, as the category structure may need adjustments if enabled earlier.

    As I left a message on the Discord, the legacy posts with heavy wikitext will be converted to have the same outputs. However, due to the coding involved, editing previous posts after the migration could break that coding, so those posts should be left untouched.

    If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact me on my message wall or ping me on Discord. I'll be in touch again once this wiki is closer to its migration stage.

      Preparing Editor Spell
    • Thank you. We have no plans to enable discussions before the migration occurs.

  • Hi Nightlily!
    There has been global discussion about the use of TabView on the wiki, and after assessing pages here, it seems TabView is used strictly to modify title display. This usage is brought up to question, given it makes editing tedious if users have to navigate pages just to edit one article. And further peculiar when the "editable" page contains every incarnation barring the current. With that in mind, I propose using {{DISPLAYTITLE:}} to solve the problem by displaying the character's current name, while still consolidating the pages into one. What do you think of this solution? I am open to your thoughts!

    • I'm not Lily, and I wasn't even here when this was decided, but I am an admin so I'll explain why I at least don't think that Displaytitle really fixes the problem that we use tabview for.

      I originally had a big history lesson but here's a tl;dr:

      TabView is used on the wiki because its basically impossible for us to come up with a system of deciding which name we need to use without having a handful of major characters having page names many would consider unacceptable. Tabview means that we don't really have to decide, and as I understand it, DISPLAYTITLE still means we have to find a system that gives us no unacceptable names for the shows most important characters, and TabView is the only system the users could agree wouldn't do that (at the time, due to the radical shrinking of the wiki since that time who knows what would happen now).

  • Hi Nightlily, in case you haven't heard the latest announcement, Fandom is retiring the chat feature once wikis have been migrated to the UCP platform.

    As your community recently implemented a dedicated Discord server, that shouldn't be too big a problem but thought I should keep you updated. The feature will remain on the legacy platform until the migration. Is there still significant use of the feature on this community?

    • Hi Shade!

      Thank you for the update. Me and the rest of the staff are aware of this and we have developed an excellent Discord server, which has already become very popular with our users, much more than the chat ever was. Not many people use the chat these days; I see one, two or three users use it now and then, but it is mostly empty.

  • Hi, Nightlily!

    So, while I was scrolling down August's page, I scrolled to the bottom where there's FANDOM recommended articles and posts, and I clicked on a recommended page named Snow White, and it led me to a duplicate once upon a time wiki. It seems like they copied your infobox styling an icon styling as well as page content from this wiki. The link to that wiki is w:c:once-upon-the-once-upon-the-time

      Preparing Editor Spell
    • in fact, almost all of the pages on that wiki are plagiarized from this wiki. The content is the exact same, word for word, taken verbatim from this wiki. 

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Now I'm not Lily, and don't treat this as speaking for any admins beside me, but considering that wiki is crazy inactive, incomplete and generally a non-factor I'm not really sure there's much of anything we could or should do about it.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • If they're plagiarizing our content, we should report them to Fandom. I don't think it's a huge deal, considering what you mentioned, but we should do it regardless.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • We're on it. Thanks for telling us, I appreciate it.

  • I noticed two images missing from Seraphina's gallery; her entrance into the underground cave scene in 7x19 when Eloise is trying to convince Tilly to help her cast her spell. She is wearing the hood and can't see her face before she reveals herself. There's also a scene where Seraphina is warning Gothel of the guards coming before she kills everyone.

      Preparing Editor Spell
    • Done 😀

      Not to be rude or anything, but last time, there was a constant stream of image requests from you. Please note that I don't mind helping you out occasionally, but I am not going to be fulfilling constant requests for images.

  • Hello!

    on the Once Upon a Time Universe page, it says French is spoken in Agrabah, by Cyrus to call his mother 'Maman'. However, 'Maman' is also Persian for mother, which would make more sense, because Agrabah is loosely based off the Middle East.

      Preparing Editor Spell
    • Thank you, that does indeed make more sense 😀 I've corrected the info on the Universe page and added the trivia to "Dirty Little Secrets".

  • Hello, How are you? I hope you are well.

    I was wondering if you could help me with something.

    On the following page, please can you make the appearence table look more professional (like for an actual character- with green letters for 'Appears' and for all the boxes to be the same colour?

    Thank you.

  • I noticed that there are no images of Gideon on the Nautilus in the Page 23 episode. Is there any chance you could upload them? On an unrelated note, do you think you could unlock the MagicalAbility template for about a day? I was planning on adding Summoning to the MagicalAbility template the last time I added new abilities but seemed to forget. I don't need too long, just enough time to add it and be done.

  • Hi Nightlily! Im a bureau at Littlest Pet Shop (2012 TV series) Wiki, and so I adopted the wiki in the beggining of month and the wiki has undergone a lot of work and I was wondering if the OUAT wiki would consider an affiliation with us

      Preparing Editor Spell
    • Yes, of course! I've added you to your list 🤗

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Thank you! 

      Also, on Hook (Wish Realm)'s page, it says hes inspired by Flynn Rider from Tangled, but shouldnt it also say hes an allusion to Captain Hook from Peter Pan?

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Ah! I remember asking my fellow editors about this, wondering why the page didn't say that Wish Hook is based on the Peter Pan character... If I remember correctly, I did add it to the page, but it was reversed. I think most of the people who chimed in on the discussion felt that adding the Peter Pan part was not the right format, since he is based on the original version of Hook, who is in turn based on Peter Pan.
