  • So @The Fragile Patient and I discuss the topic of categories and how to make less confusing for anyone who comes to the wikia (http://orphanblack.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:13054). So just click on the link provided inside the  parenthesis to read our convo and let me know if it also makes sense for you. Also, I saw that you created a page for a new character but have not infobox. In other wikias (like my own Pretty Little Liars or the Once Upon A Time Wikia) they wait till there's more  information available and after that if all it's missing is a pic, then they have a placeholder image they put to let the readers no there's no image available. If you want  I could get creative and come up with a good concept for one? Just let me know okay!

    P.S.: I hope I'm not oberstepping any potential boundaries but I just wanted to give you some of my own knowledge to help make this wikia even better!

    • Ah, okay. Sorry. I just read the tidbit and thought I'd add it (even though I haven't been on here a while). Just that on my wikis, I don't mind creating pages for yet-to-appear characters with little information, etc., as long as they're confirmed, and yes the infobox is usually added, but I was in kind of a rush earlier when I made the page and I just decided to publish the bit I've typed up; and as for placeholder images, it's not a practice I've gotten accustomed to, but I see its uses. :D Well anyway, seeing as I'm not very active anymore, I'll leave the decision making up to you guys who are. :) If you two could discuss who I should promote to bureaucrat, in case you guys ever decide to expand the admin team in my absence, just tell me.

    • No, I'm not chastising you... Just that I felt like at least having it with an Infobox would have made it look more professional. You get me? How r u by the way? Okay, I'll look into some place holders and get back to you on that!  Well, seen as how I have the most experience (you can talk to other people) you can promote me and then together we can decide if  Luka(Fragile Patient)/or someone else who exceeds our expectations. I could remain your active bureaucrat. I think once the series resumes, we could see if any users stay beyond the normal run and decide from there.

    • Yeah. Like I said, I was just kind of in a rush, and when I am I tend to get too lazy to go to the infobox page or type it up myself from memory.

      Haha, just busy with stuff in life. I've been on a kind of much needed break from Wikia for weeks/months.

      Done.

    • No worries, like I said, i was chastising you at all. Just noticed it and wanted to ask you about it and suggest you some alternatives. LOLI was too (off wikia for a while) but I came back and there was so much to do.  :P Have you been doing anything fun?

    • Occasionally. But mostly, it was to bury myself in work and classes and life. :))

    • Oh, for college. I shifted to a new major this semester so I had a bunch of adjustments to do; didn't help that last semester was extra hectic. Makes me wish I left earlier, lol.
