  • Hey,



    You undid my edit with the argument that Hope's transformation control comes from her being a tribrid, not because her werewolf side is evolved. It has been EXPLICITLY stated in TO that her transformation control comes from her being an evolved werewolf of the Crescent wolf pack...

    Klaus did state her to be a Crescent wolf capable of transformation control (go to see TO season 5, episode 12. Stated around minute 4), where do you even get the assumption that her tribrid side is the one granting her that?

  • Hi, I'm from Manifest Wiki. I'm wondering if Vampire Diaries Wiki would like to have an affiliation with Manifest Wiki?

  • Hey,

    I was wondering if we could split up the family part of Josie and Lizzie's infoboxes into "actual" family (via Caroline and Alaric but replacing the word actual with something more fitting) and biological family (via Jo) as they consider Caroline to be their mother and Elizabeth to be their grandmother. To me the infoboxes currently seem like the only relation they have to Caroline is that she carried them (I would also suggest dropping the prefix surrogate or changing it to adoptive as it's basically embyro adoption) as well as ignoring Caroline's side of the family. Legacies also stated that Caroline is their actual mother and Jo isn't. I would also change their introductory summary. I attached an image showing what I mean: 

    Infobox Change Suggestion

    • Hi LordStormborn,

      I agree, the infobox should be changed. Feel free to do this. However, I think that surrogate should stay as the prefix, since there has been no mention of actual adoption.

    • I've reordered Josette under Biological and Caroline as Surrogate within the infobox. Alaric, too, is a biological parent, and there's not a valid reason (to me) to not include them both together when Josette is isolated and stated as "Biological" (shown above and previous edit to mine for correction).

      As far as the Surrogate Maternal Ancestors go, via Carolina... I'm not sure that's even necessary because Lizzie has only referred to Caroline's mother... i.e. she was named after their (Lizzie and Josie's) mother's (Caroline) mom (Liz Forbes)... "I'm Lizzie. After my mother's mom." They aren't biological related to any of her ancestors, so it just seems unnecessary to me to include anyone beyond Caroline or her parents. That's just my two cents though. That like listing Stefan as their step-father when Caroline was only married for less than a day and there was no 'formal' adoption that's been stated as canon. -Thoughts?

    • I totally see where you are coming from. For me it just seemed like the series implied adoption (which althought not confirmed just seemed logical for me for Caroline to have adopted them). Thus I'm kind of of the opposite opinion and would consider Caroline's family more "important" than Jo's. 

      I'm going to try to reach out to the writers via twitter even though I doubt they will reply.

  • Hello, there. I'm an admin from the Your Hero Academia Wiki which is relatively new and my friends and I just got started on it. A friend told me you were good at source code editing and I was wondering if you could help us out a bit? So far, we've managed to create two character infoboxes kind of based off of some old versions of the ones in this wiki and the TVD Novels Wiki. I was wondering if you could help us create a character infobox styled like the one on your profile page with the ability to switch between three categories: Hero, Villain and Vigilante (which would change the color coding like your wiki's Template:Character when editing the "universe" code). Our codes would use your user profile's character template style with a couple more categories and use the colors "orange", "dark red" and a "dark purple" or "magenta" of sorts for each of the previously stated character categories respectively.

    Please let me know if you can help or if you know someone else who can, it would be much appreciated! :)

      Hi Elena,

      Apologies that I didn't reply, I've been busy with exams and stuff that has meant I couldn't dedicate a huge portion of time to FANDOM -- I've been loosely checking in every now and again. If you still need help with the template, let me know. I'm sure I can help out over Christmas.


      No apology needed, lel, my friends and I actually haven't had much time either, we're only just getting to the real work of creating our wiki now. And yes, please. I'd like to use this template on my wiki as simplified as this wiki's "character template". By that I mean how you can simply change its color by stating which series the character is in (example TVD/TO/LEGACIES). Instead of "universe" on my wiki it would "alignment" and the three different types of categories (instead of TVD/TO/LEGACIES) would be "hero" (gold), "villain" (red) and "vigilante" (purple). Idk how to do any of that, Lol.

      Do you still need help with the username template? That requires some JS to change the name, it doesn't just work from the template.

      Rip, I messed that up XD. I assume you'd need administrative rights on my wiki to do all of the above?

      The species section did, originally, read as unknown, but users kept changing it back and I lost all effort to stop them. It might be changed back soon.

      Thanks for getting back to me! By the way, on the main page I saw that the color scheme for Legacies characters doesn't match that of the character pages, which is green the last time I checked, I think? Is there a reason why they don't?

    • Apologies again, Christmas got the better of me.

      Weird, I wasn't the one who created that. Nonetheless, I've fixed this. They should now match.


      Rip, I messed that up XD. I assume you'd need administrative rights on my wiki to do all of the above?

      Add this to your MediaWiki:Wikia.js will solve this problem.

      function UserNameReplace() {
          if(typeof(disableUsernameReplace) != 'undefined' && disableUsernameReplace || wgUserName == null) return;
          $("span.insertusername").text(wgUserName);
       }

      I'll get to work on the template sometime tomorrow, as it's quite late in England and I'm off to work. I'll let you know when it's finished. Sometime this week hopefully.

  • Hi Luke! It's been a minute. How are you? You good? Anyway, I was wondering why the backdoor pilot isn't listed in the "previous episode" in the episode template of This is the Part Where You Run and if I could add it if there since that's where it technically starts. Also, can I do the same for Always and Forever?

      Good to hear that. I'm good, graduated back in June and taking a gap year to figure out what I wanna do first in university so I've got all this free time on my hands, it's kind of liberating and maddening at the same time.

      Yes. Feel free to add this.

      Cool, thanks.

  • Hello, Luke!

    Hope this message finds you well! Haven't been around for a minute. Not sure if you are aware but I have been working on my own wiki on-and-off for about 4 years. It is coming along nicely, slowly but surely. However, I do not know how to create infobox template codes, as the ones already there are either standard wiki infoboxes or were added on by other sources several years ago. Specifically, season page infoboxes, character appearances, and for in-universe groups. If you could help/teach me, it would be much appreciated.

    • Hey Patrick, hope you have been well.

      I'm not sure if you're aware of the new infobox syntax, but things have been simplified massively. Infoboxes for characters and seasons are easily made, and then styled through CSS. I have included the syntax for the season infoboxes we use here, and then the CSS can be found at MediaWiki:Themes.css.

      For other infoboxes, such as character appearances, do you have anything in mind? I can help you design something if you have any ideas.

      Let me know what exactly you want help with, I can help you style them if you have the basics down.

      <infobox theme="to-infobox-season">
      	<title source="Season"><format>Season {{{Season}}}</format></title>
      	<image source="Image"/>
      	<group layout="horizontal">

    • Okay, so I would simply make a new page then copy-paste the code and I'm done? Seems simple enough. Thanks.

      For character appearances, I was thinking basically the chart that is here, or something similar to it. For example, a chart for the character appearances here:

      https://cw-series-fanfiction.wikia.com/wiki/Supergirl_Season_3

      Would I need to make a different code for each season?

  • Hello again! I think it would be very difficult to work in a third logo and still be easily readable, but I can try. Just link me to a (preferably transparent) version of the third logo, and I'll see what I can do.

    In the meantime, I'll work on a wordmark that displays "The Vampire Diaries Universe Wiki" and show it when it's ready.

  • That information was already confirmed to be incorrect. She was not born in May. If you are going by Kol's statement in 4x03 that was a continuity error.

    "This is madness. How can a 16-year-old girl shake the entire French quarter?" - 1x11 (Klaus about Davina)

    " I'm gone not three months and look at the trouble your in". - 5×12TVD (couple weeks after 1x11 Rebekah to Matt), she had left at the end of Summer right before he started college in 1st episode of season 5. 3 months after August/September is November/December)

    "They've got every **16-year-old girl** in our coven dying to be one of the four chosen for this crazy-ass ritual". - Sophie to Marcel in flashback **8 months prior to 1x02 which took place same time as 5x01 in September** (end of summer/starting college), September minus 8 months is January.

    ^ these dates confirm Davina was 16 between January 2011 to November 2011. Putting her date of birth between November 1994 to January 1995. 

    If it was May 1994 then she would have been 17 when she 1st appeared, despite it saying multiple times she was 16. If it was May 1995 then she would not have been 16 at the Harvest, despite it being said in flashback (1x05) that she was.

  • Hi there, Original Authority,

    For consistency, I was wondering if you'd run your bot to fix these episodes names (and their transcripts) so all episodes are formatted the same?

    • [[Isobel (episode)]] --> [[Isobel (Episode)]]
    • [[Rose (episode)]] --> [[Rose (Episode)]]
    • [[Klaus (episode)]] --> [[Klaus (Episode)]]

    • Graduation (Episode)
    • The Originals (Episode)
    • Legacies (Episode)

    Or vise versa with (episode). With Legacies now an episode title, some are (episode) and other are (Episode). Seems like somewhere down the line after season two, 'E' was used and followed.

    Just let me know whenever/whatever you decide and I'll go through and clean up straggling dead links.

    • For some reason, I'm thinking that was taken with a Polaroid(?)... But, yes, I believe so. I'd have to double check to be sure though. I vaguely remember the episode.

    • Smh. Another continuity error. The Episode was The Map of Moments and yes it was burned. (Image from finale)
