  • Hi Alex, I have posted a new conversation with regard to other books Diana wrote about the outlander series and wanted feedback if anyone else read them. I'm interested in knowing if the Lord John Grey series is in chronological order on this fandom website under "books"? I thought LJG A Private Matter was the first one in the series. I have purchased that one and LJG Hand of Devils, LJG Brotherhood of the Blade and The Scottish Prisoner. There is also novellas written about LJG in the book Seven Stones to Stand or Fall. I thought you might help.

  • Hello,
    Joe Abernathy and Young Ian are two of my favorite characters in the series, books and TV. I would like to add the actors to the bios pages. Is this possible? I just got a contact back from Wil Johnson and he told me the two sources for bio on him he approves of. I would like to add him and have him look it over then have you guys run through it? Is that something that is okay to do?

    Trying to get a hold of John Bell. He's a real sweetie and will probably be open for it, too. I don't like doing this kind kind thing without checking with actors. Too many commercial ad running sites using bots to create awfully wrong bios on actors to make money.

    Can you let me know if I can do this? I will put things together in a Google doc first and fill in the Wiki when it's ready for a first draft.

    Unless you got their bios buried on this site and I can't find them. Janet

  • I see you have some of the main actors listed under series, was wondering if you are adding others?

    • I'm not personally very interested in actor bios, so no, I wasn't planning on adding them. You can add them if you want, but please keep in mind, content should not be copied directly from another site unless it is free to use under a CCBYSA license (e.g. Wikipedia). When using content copied from Wikipedia, the template {{Wikipedia}} should be included at the top of the page. If you have any questions about this, please let me know.

    • Wasn't planning on copying directly, writing it myself but from the actor's approved sources.

      Do you not already have a template for the bios? 

      I would ask Actors for any approved headshots they want used and contact info on them.

  • Just a question, do you have articles in books v series, or are articles in the body separating what happens book v series. I have read all the books, and would indicate if something was series v book.

    • Since the TV series so far has been largely true to the books, with deviations here and there, it hasn't made sense to make separate pages for the show. So for a character page, most of the content should be based on the books, and any significant TV differences would go in the "TV Series" section.

  • Hello, what do you really need help with. I just updated a Duncan Lacroix page about his upcoming performancy as Lord Percy. Since he dropped off Twitter. Sad. There's a gap in data for him with some upcoming outside Outlander Universe we are waiting official on.

    I can do basic clean up edits if you want, mostly glaring things. I can try to read through things if they need some smoothing out, another set of eyes. Don't think I would add to WiKi until I saw how others were doing it

  • I've really been enjoying editing lately but please don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything I'm doing consistently wrong or you'd like me to do differently. :) I hope I'm not making too many mistakes. I know the basics of reading/writing code, but not much about wiki code specifically.

    • I definitely appreciate your efforts! Especially since I've been too busy IRL to really devote time to generating content; these days I usually just check in a few times a day to make sure there's no vandalism going on.

      I haven't noticed anything major with your edits. Whenever I do notice a recurring sort of edit that I don't agree with, I try to remember to add a note explaining why in the edit summary.

      I'm not sure how you have your preferences set, but I prefer and generally recommend editing with the Source Editor, rather than the VisualEditor. I just feel better about my edits knowing exactly how the underlying wiki code looks, and there's the "Desktop" button that lets you preview how the page will look before you hit Publish.

      That said, you can of course edit using whichever works best for you. If you want to review/change your preferences, go to Special:Preferences and click on the Editing tab. And don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions :)

  • Thank you so much for returning a response Alex. May I call you that? I understand that while only being able to read the posts it doesn't include feeling or tone in the conversation. I'm glad you explained yourself. Thank you for doing so. No. You did not indicate that I would not be able to further post on the site but I took the chance. I was unaware that there was a private message board also for I would have messaged you privately. My mistake. Mine was not the first post that I got that impression from you. There was a discussion on the "Can Anyone Tell Me Why Joe Abernathy Calls Claire "Lady Jane". It was your response to Adso The Cat aka Eva. You berated her about speech patterns. My hair sort of stood up at your response. I guess we can just chalk it up to finding ourselves in the middle of the "Droughtlander" situation. We are finding ways to keep the conversation going. I, as you know am trying to catch up by reading the books. I don't consider myself thin skinned and am always willing to look at things from another perspective. That being said, let's all just be aware of other's feelings and enjoy this wonderful way of experiencing what brings us all together "Outlander". I hope this clears things up? Thanks for your time.

    • Yes, you are welcome to call me Alex. Just to clarify something up front, message walls are not private – they are visible to anyone visiting the wiki. They are, however, a better avenue for one-on-one conversation, airing grievances, asking policy questions, etc., rather than the discussion board which should ideally be focused on book and TV discussion. Again, I just wanted to make sure you were aware this sort of message isn't strictly private.

      As to the other matter, I see again a case of perceiving things very differently. I'll admit that my post on the Lady Jane thread was snarky, but it definitely focused on the content of Eva's comment, not her as a person. I can accept that such frank disagreement might rub someone the wrong way, but there is nothing inherently scolding in what I wrote. Personal attacks are definitely not tolerated anywhere on the wiki; the main reason I take time to try to read every single discussion post is to make sure ad hominem remarks are kept out of it. A byproduct of reading so many posts (a majority of which I tend not to respond to) is that, I guess I get a little comfortable speaking my mind without accounting for others' sensitivities. I'll try to be more mindful of that in the future.
