  • Lately, I've been editing around pages related to Atlantis: The Lost Empire, and I've noticed a few things that are in need of re-evaluation. Mostly all the pages relating to the film are filled with contents that sounds like speculation, fan-fiction and nonsense.

    When I read through the Atlantis page it says that after its discovery it became a secret tourist attraction for celebrities, and dignitaries. According to the Heart of Atlantis page, the crystal originated from a comet, which passed over Earth 10,000 years ago. We even have a page on Keepers of the Journal. I've watched the film and behind the scenes documentaries. There was no saying Atlantis became a tourist attraction, no origin of the crystal and no Keepers of the Journal.

    From what I can tell, all this information was plagiarised from the Atlantis Wiki, which is seemed to be more fan based than accurate. I think its time we gave Atlantis: The Lost Empire a major re-evaluation. Remove any information that is considered false as well reorganise and simplify the contents till they are more like the rest of the pages on this wiki.

    I'll be notifying other admins, content mods, and other good users to help out.

    • 'Fraid I won't be able to help, as I've never even seen the film. Good luck on the project, though!

  • Since you can access the theme settings, its time to revert the theme back.

    • I can't always give you references. Sometimes someone's word and experience is all there is and all you're going to get. I'm here 24/7, and I know most of things and users around here. I'm the closest thing you will have to a guide. This site is also a target of vandalism and sockpuppet, which is something we try to keep out. Hence why we have certain restrictions that you can't understand. I know because I'm the one who spots and reports them all the time. If you were in my shoes or on here everyday 24/7 you know what I'm talking about.

  • Book pages are less likely to expand. It's more efficient to just have all books listed on one page instead of creating individual pages for books because they receive any major editing activity for years. When we create individual book pages, it depends on how much attention the article gets and how popular to topic in question is, like the Descendants novels. The same goes for all the articles on this Wiki.

    • That's fine - but from a perspective of search engine optimization, that's probably not the best practice. Even if you don't want to have the page for the particular book, rather than flat-out deleting it, it would be better to instead keep it as a redirect to the list of books. That way if somebody searches for the book title or otherwise come into the wiki that way, they'll be sent directly to that rather than simply finding a deleted page or not finding anything at all. It also serves as an easy indicator that the list of books page is preferred, rather than having the article that doesn't have much content.

      As for the concern regarding spoilers, perfectly understandable. I was able to find the Spoiler policy and I read other it, so I will be mindful of that. It might be helpful to include some form of that in the "Upcoming" template that is on the top of such pages.

    • Every deletion I make is given careful consideration, and all broken links are either removed or redirected. Your concerns about users ending up at a deleted page will never happen here. We're always around the clock looking out for broken links. I have other users who help me out in that department. We do have a separate notice for "Spoilers", which is only inserted when the movie premieres and after a month it's removed.
