I think the news feed is useful. That's where I usually check for any new information about the show from legit websites. However, I can see if we have space to add it somewhere in the main page if you like.
Also, I have a task for you. I think we could use more affiliated wikis to add to our short list it may help to bring in more potential editors. If you are interested, could you go to other communities and ask them to affiliate with us?
It has actually become more active than before. I think people are finally getting a discussion going about the third season, so that's why I think it should remain where it is now. But we can make space for it in the main space when the affiliates list becomes longer.
So here is the list of communities I had in mind:
The matter that pertains your visit to these communities is that on behalf of 13RW you are seeking to be affiliated with them in order to facilitate the recognition of our community, which will increase its development and growth. This affiliation will also benefit them. If they approve, then you will both exchange wordmarks to add to the respective communities. You can access ours here.
Great. Also, I wanted to tell you that I have updated the design of our wiki in par with the Wiki Modernization. It's about time for some change. I also wanted to change the colour palette of the wiki to be more dark themed. I'll try to see if that'll work in the Theme Designer and then post a screenshot when I finalise it.
Hey Tammzz, Charlie from Fandom here with more good news to bring you! We announced the other day the official Fandom Discord server! You can join here and see the blog post for more information here. The Discord server was made to give you and your communities more support on Fandom so we hope to see you there!
Yeah, I know the page, but I needed you to specify the issue since I didn't get it. I can see the page, but I don't know why you can't. Maybe you should report this to the staff so they can check out the problem. The font I also imported to the wiki is not working anymore, nor is the RailWam. The latter seems to be happening to several wikis
But the only problem is, staff will not be able to help us with creating Quizzes so we will have to create them as tests. 13RW S03 could be here anytime judging by release dates of previous seasons. I think this feature would help us boost some activity on discussion board.
Hi! Every S2 episode has screenshots now, I completed the last episode yesterday :)
I will add the pictures to the character pages in the next few weeks.
I made a few mistakes in the file names, and only admins can change file names, so I was wondering if you or another admin could correct them?
These are the incorrect names:
- File:S02E05-The-Chalk-Machine-002-Tyler-And-Cryus.PNG -> Cryus should be Cyrus
- File:S02E06-The-Smile-At-The-End-Of-The-Dock-014-Clay-Jensen.PNG -> Clay Jensen should be Alex Standall
Since there are so many of them it might take a lot of time to correct them, so if there's anything I could do to make it easier, please tell me!
Some other questions I have:
- I’m probably going make some of the S1 screencaps too, kinda depends on when S3 comes out. The S01E01 screencaps only have the first names of the characters in the file names. In the S2 screencaps, the full names of characters are used when they’re alone in the screenshot. Is it better if I name the S1 screencaps like S01E01 or like the S2 screenshots I made?
- On the CWB Project page, it says the Tape 1, Side A screencaps are completed. However, only the first half of the episode has been screenshotted. Could you or am I allowed to change this on the CWB page? And am I allowed to, if I’m going to screenshot S1, complete the episode?
- Some things on other pages you could change now: the image policy says you have to add episode names as a category to images. You guys decided not to do that anymore right? And now that every S2 episode has screencaps, you could change the template Mainpage Help.
Also a question that has nothing to do with the screencaps; there are some characters on the Minor Characters page that I was wondering of if they could get their own page:
- Tracy Porter
They appeared both seasons in multiple episodes. Seth is pretty important to Justin’s storyline and based on the last S2 episode, he’ll still be that or even more important in S3. Tracy Porter also seems just as important as/more important than characters like Jackie/Coach Patrick/Mrs. Bradley/some parents who all have their own pages. So my question is if I'm allowed to make those pages?
There are some characters that could move to the Minor Characters page instead:
- Garrett: Appeared in only one scene and was mentioned once.
- Michael: Only known as Nina’s friend, wasn’t important to the storyline.
- May Dempsey: Appeared for less than a minute in the 3 episodes she was in.
Thanks in advance (and sorry for the many questions/long message)!
I just want to thank you for your commitment and perseverance in uploading the screencaps. I am happy with your contributions thus far. I will fix those mistakes right now, but thank you for actually going over them and marking the mistakes for me. Makes my job easier.
Re. the s1 screencaps, I would say to go with first names, but since you included full names for the s2 screencaps I say you should continue with the full names. I like consistency to be kept throughout the wiki, and renaming all the s2 screencaps instead is not an option. It'd be too tedious.
Re. Tape 1 Side A, I started working on the screencaps but I never managed to finish due to revising for the exams. Don't worry about it, I'll finish it soon. You should always do complete episode screencaps, don't be like me haha.
Me and LegitPLL did discuss episode categories and decided to just allow it. So that remains in the image policy. However, if you haven't added the categories, then I can help you with that. I will also remove the notice in the main page right away.
I approve Seth and Tracy getting their own page. They are not minor characters anymore, as they appear in more than 3 episodes.
And yes, those three characters should and will be moved to the minor characters page. They don't require individual pages due to their low appearances/importance.
No problem, I like people who seek out help from an admin when they need it instead of doing things without permission. Plus, it makes me feel useful for once lol. Just keep up the good work and I'll be back to help out full-time very soon, once I fix my laptop. There's still a lot to be done, and I'd prefer them to be accomplished before s3 is out. Btw, if you notice other things that need to be done, please do update the CWB Project or inform me if you want.
Also, one more thing. Make sure to not capitalize .png. It should all be in small letters. Moreover, if you check out this wiki's Manual of Style it has the following rule: "The first letter of every word in a title must be capitalized, except for articles (a, an, the), coordinating conjunctions, prepositions and the "to" in an infinitive." This rule applies to file names. Looking at the file names above you've capitalized all the words in the episode names and that is wrong. Unless everything is capitalized in the actual episode officially, then for instance it should be "The Smile at the End of the Dock" instead of "The Smile At The End Of The Dock". Got it? If you are unsure about how to name episodes, check out the corresponding episode pages. That should always work. I will unfortunately have to rename most of the images to fix that, but good job nonetheless.
Oh... You mean the images I upload aren't allowed to have PNG as file format name? It refers to the same file format as png.
All screencaps from 2x04, 2x05 and 2x06 have capitalized PNG behind their names. Maybe this happened because I uploaded those screencaps at the images page and I uploaded the other screencaps while I was editing the episode pages.
They are allowed to have png has the file format name, but I was referring to the caps. I'd rather have either PNG or png, though I know they are the same thing but I like to keep it clean and consistent. I also updated my reply above, I included other things you should be aware of.
I understand that, but the thing is that this just happened as I uploaded the images on here, I didn't do anything to the files I had saved on my laptop.

I did this because every word in the screencaps names always had every word capitalized and I assumed that that meant literally every word had to be capitalized in image names, despite the episode names/exceptions. I should've asked this beforehand. My apologies!

Now you almost have to do as much work as you would have made the screencaps yourself. I don't know if there's a way you can make a non-admin able to rename images, but if there is, please let me know and help.
I see, it's no problem I am not blaming you. I understand your situation.
Re. the naming of files, I guess I should've been more clear about that in the image policy too. When you come across unclear situations like this always ask an admin to be safe. But it's fine, honestly, no need to apologise. You actually managed to follow all the rules, but mistakes always find a way to come through lol. Most people don't even bother and I have to end up deleting or renaming all the files myself.
Because you have shown dedication to the role of uploading screencaps, you'll be glad to hear that I am promoting you to a Content Moderator. That way you can you can monitor and fix small mistakes right away without admin assistance. That means deleting, renaming and protecting files/pages. Along with these new perks, your job is also to patrol the pages edited by other members to ensure that the content remains relevant and protected by spammers and/or other abusers. I hope you're interested in this promotion :)
When I'm going to rename the files, shall I also fix the numbering of the screencaps that start with 000 instead of 001?
Is there anything else to fix, maybe other words that shouldn't have capitals (for example: S02E12-The-Box-of-Polaroids-099-Olivia-and-Jessica-hugging.png instead of S02E12-The-Box-Of-Polaroids-099-Olivia-And-Jessica-Hugging.png)?
And yes you should definitely change the numbering and fix the capitalized words in the file names. I can help you with that too. To make it easier, I can start from ep 1 and you can start from ep 13, then you work your way down and I work my way up. Btw, if you use the Mass Renaming tool you have to manually update the file name in the episode and character pages. Imo that is tedious work, I prefer to do it individually because that way you can use the "rename and update" option which automatically updates the renamed file across all the pages it's in. Also, don't leave any redirects for the renamed screencaps.
So I renamed the S02E13 screencaps, but there were some files I couldn't rename. I made a few mistakes with the numbering of the screencaps when I first uploaded them and had asked LegitPLLGirl if she could fix them. Now I can't rename those screencaps because of redirects.
It's all sorted out. I just deleted the redirects so I could rename them respectively. When you come across a situation where you want to rename a file/page, but it is used as a redirect, go to the redirect page (if you try and it redirects you then the link to the page is usually under the main name) and delete the redirect page so you may use it.
Hmm, I'll check it out. Thanks for letting me know. Btw I can undo it that's not a problem, and I'll be able to see what else the bot has done by going to it's contributions. But what I'm wondering is why the bot is doing that.
I still had the image on my laptop, now I understand why it was deleted! The screencap showed Clay looking at a Polaroid, the one of two students having sex. I will take another screenshot without the Polaroid in it and make sure that the other screencaps I'm gonna upload don't show anything graphic.
I'm late but I had this problem, yeah basically FANDOM doesn't allow any media of a sexual nature, when I was editing The Polaroids–as you'll see– I had to re-upload the image with a censor on it (now deleted because of the updating/renaming screencaps thing). And put warnings under the headings for the The Second and Third Polaroid. So you can upload the same image but censor it, i'd recommed pixelating anything graphic.
The only problem is that I already uploaded another screencap to replace the third Polaroid and didn't screenshot the second Polaroid because I knew it would get deleted, so I'll have to change the numbering of the screencaps.
Good to know. I've also been away, as you already know, because of exams. But I'm planning on returning soon during the summer vacation. We have gotten some fandom wiki managers to assist us in developing our wiki. Ranmeare has also been working on the screencaps. That's about it really. Glad to have you back though :)
