  • I am 80! I never watched series on TV. Except for French series in the past 20 years. And except Downton Abbey and Poldark since they aired. But Outlander was not visible on TV in Belgium and only partly in the Netherlands. I discovered the books, parts of the series and bought the DVD's.

    Now I am re-watching from time to time and think I will never see the end of the story - age and the number of books do not make this possible - or be able to meet one or another of the characters. This last idea does not pain me as much as not seeing the last season(!!!)

    I loved season 1 but admit that the scenes with Jamie and Black Jack Randall made me hate the captain and his twisted brain. I liked season 2, but peferred the second part, in Scotland. Paris is so complicated and the honest characters Jamie and Claire are not the right people to be there in all those lies. Versailles and King Louis XV are a bit too caricatural to me. I did not like season 3 to begin with. Jamie's character has changed so much and Claire is so "doctorish" and superior! But, after a second and a third reviewing I realized that this is a love declaration from Jamie to Claire! He does everything he can to keep her, to have her back with him, forever. Sometimes I think she did not understand this. Jamie is not Frank. Jamie is kind, has been unhappy for 20 years trying to be a man at 100% and she is not helping him that much in the beginning. She should understand this as she has been unhappy too. But he had their daughter at least. Jamie has been lon,ging to be a father and never really was. I know he will meet Brianna in season 4 and I am looking forward to it. I just hope that Claire will follow the love of her life in a more comprehensive way and be the person she is in Diana Gabaldon's books. She is not only there to be a doctor or a nurse, but principally to be Jamie's wife and life-long truthful companion, the person who assists him in the new world and helps him to be the man he has to be. It will make her happy too.

    And I would prefer not to see any drilling skull images. Did not seem serious to me. Sorry! I did not like Jamaïca and The Bakra because it does not have to be reality but should a least seem credible. But I am still an addict and love the whole presentation with its qualities and its defaults. Thanks to all those who worked at it.

  • I’m sorry for the misunderstanding between GadjanovD and myself. I posted an apology on first thread and also one along with a response to a new post she has made in an attempt to leave this behind us. To start with a clean slate. I was not trying to derail the conversation but just apologize to her and so everyone could see that I’m genuinely sorry. I’m always willing to agree to disagree with others opinions I do not share. Which I have said in several other conversations. I’m also sorry that I assumed your previous post from 11/20/17 would apply in this case. In the future if I have any misunderstandings or difficulties I will bring the problem to you for assistance in settling the problem. I’m truly sorry about this situation and I hope that this will settle incident.

    • Sorry for the delay in responding – was visiting with family the last several days and I've been playing catch up. Anyway, no worries! I just think it's important, especially when newer people are joining the discussion, to start off by assuming good faith and then to reiterate that discussions that go beyond mere disagreement are best brought to an admin to help resolve. That's what I'm here for ;) Even in cases like this where it turns out to be a simple misunderstanding, I'm happy to act as a third party moderator on any issue.

    • Thank you, for your understanding. I’ve been under a good deal of stress lately and so I will consider my replies more carefully. :)

  • 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.

    • I added a link to the discussion: Outlander series. You can also check out the Lord John series page.

      The LJG series gets complicated because the 3 novels are interspersed with novellas/short stories. So, Private Matter is the first novel, but the short story Hellfire Club precedes it in terms of internal chronology.

    • Wow! That's great. Thank you Alex. I wouldn't be a big deal if all the LJG stories were just simply stories and didn't effect the time line but I wanted to make sure. That's a big 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

  • Hi La Dame Blanche! We've a signed Bear McCreary Season 3 CD and I'd love to send it to you if you'd like it! Please email us at giveaways@fandom.com with your mailing address.

  • 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.

      Loading editor
    • 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 :)
