Hey. So I have been away from the wiki for a while and I recently decided to start contributing again. I am not sure who's in charge of pages, but I noticed that on the Fairytale page for Cinderella, the story is a mix between Perrault's version and the Brothers Grimms' version. How should I proceed?
Usually, the origin of the first known publication of the fairytale is listed in the introduction paragraph at the top usually also providing the book and author name it was published under. However, for the traditional plot, it's not specified if the summary is a depiction of one fairytale version of Cinderella. The suggested idea of having both Cinderella story versions on the page is a current wiki discussion (though the thread itself has been inactive for some months now...), but it'd be great if you want to give an opinion within the thread and resume the conversation here: http://onceuponatime.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:172432
"Was that the Snow Queen, or Frozen’s Elsa, in the final moments?
Adam Horowitz: That was Elsa.
So you’ll base the character on Frozen and not the original fairy tale?
Horowitz: We are dealing with the world of Frozen. We are honored to be allowed to do it. We loved the movie. We fell in love with it when it came out last year like everyone did, and we want to do our best to do it justice."
It is clearly stated that she is to be referred to as Elsa, not the Snow Queen. There is no argument here.
But we have no proof that she will credited as Snow Queen either. There is no evidence that ABC would credit her as the Snow Queen, so why would she be called that on here right now? If you are saying that you don't know how ABC will address the character, you are now just picking the title of Snow Queen over Elsa because ABC hasn't given anyone a reason to call her the Snow Queen. It doesn't make sense...
Hi Prince :) I just noticed something: on the Worlds templates (like Oz, Neverland FTL, etc...) there is a "Relevant pages" section with Gallery, Timeline and Locations. I wonder why we can not add a link in this section to the List of Characters of the world too :)
Hey, I thought we could have discussed about the color instead of one just picking it and then simply reverting other's suggestion XD It's just a color, so It's ok whatever we end up using, but yet, I would've liked to talk about it first. :P
Sorry about that. All fixed. Also, I know you did a lot of work with the book appearance template, so if you could help me out by adding the icon to pages for whatever appeared in the books,
I would appreciate it. I never read them myself so my knowledge is limited.

Ah, I see. Well, no disrespect, but seeing how Wonderland was its own miniseries, I think it would be fair to include a few one shot characters like we do for some concerning the main show. After all, given how the characters in question have their own amount of fame outside the show. But of course, you are the admin so that's entirely up to you. Just a thought though. Thanks for answering my question! (And so quickly!)
Perhaps. (Although it can't be TOO much of a coincidence. You don't hear a fairy name like Silvermist flying around (oh ha ha) all too often. Not to mention the fact that she's a water fairy.) No, perhaps not, but we do have pages for characters that only appeared once that have left a lasting impact. The Dragon for instance. Personally, I think that the two should stay. I understand wanting to clear some room and that it'd be pretty unreasonable to keep them around since they only appeared once, but contrast to someone whose appearance were really none too spectacular or important. Marian and Trish for example. Two characters that appeared once for five seconds and didn't say a word. That I\ll grant you. Marion's impact however is still yet to be explored, but at least here, we learn some information from these characters...to some degree at least.
Well, if we ARE to go that route, we may as well put Grendel, Carpenter and the bearded man on the same lists. (Wherever they belong of course.) Think of this though, without the un-in with the Cat, we probably wouldn't have seen Will return to Alice's company unless by another means of encounter. (Knowing Will, who knows how long that might've been.) Without Silvermist's help, the two would never have flown over the sea and found the Mockturtle. With the two previously mentioned ladies, we only get maybe 10 seconds of screentime without a word and the next minute, dead. But you do have a point. Would there be any sort of consensus need this time round or would it simply be deleting whenever?
I disagree with Grendel, as he was featured much more in his appearance. But I completely agree with Bearded Man and Carpenter. Even woman/mother. I am not trying to say they didn't contribute to the flow of the story. I love stories like this that have multiple moving parts all of which are necessary. But page worthiness is another matter in and of itself. Usually, there isn't a consensus reached for page deletion. That's one executive power the admins have usually maintained for various reasons. But if enough people can prove the pages necessary then their Canidacy for Deletion will certainly be lifted. And remember deletions are not permanent. They can be restored at any time should a character reappear and make a larger contribution. The reason I am making this judgment call for "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" now is the cancellation, making the story rather close-ended.
Of course. My naming of Grendel may have been a bit blatant. Just trying to think of more one-shot examples. I agree with the others as well. As much as I'd like to say Mr. Shamed had a big role in ensuring Cyrus got to Wonderland in the first place, even I will admit even he didn't get as much screentime as Silvermist did. Same goes with Carpenter. I am one of those people that likes the idea that if they appeared in the original story or had some significance to their appearance that does their origin justice, they have a right to have a page. But knowing the wiki policies, that may be a bit brash given that even though certain iconic characters appear, it doesn't give them the ultimate right to have a page. So long as their origin is credited, I'm fine with that much at least. Ah, alright then. The perks of being in charge. Wonderful. :) Still, given the cancelation, there's still the hope that we may see some deleted material revolving around certain characters. Recalling the regard of the Cat slated to appear in the midseason finale and yet...nothing, there may have been a scene that might have been cut out. So perhaps, hold off on the Cat for a bit, but while I'm still against Silvermist's deletion, you are after all the one to make that desicion. I just wondered that's all. I thought their presence both on the show and on the wiki were....erhm....significant, but that might just be me playing favorites again.
I'm currently writing my Master's Thesis on Once Upon a Time, and I was wondering if it would be alright for me to start a thread in an attempt to get some feedback from some fellow fans of the show. Much of my research deals with Disney's role in the show (mostly through allusions), and I'm interested in getting some authentic opinions on/reactions to the Disney allusions and intertextuality of OUaT. I figured being up front about it would be the best way to avoid stepping on any toes.
Advertising is not the intent... it's really just sharing. Something cool happend for Once Upon a Time and all the fans deserve to know. That's what I'm trying to get across. I'm not affiliated with QuizUp. I did write the quiz though, with help from this wiki even.
Just go try it... I'm sure you're not afraid you'll lose. You should know Once Upon a Time better than most :P
