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.
When we design themes we do it ahead of time. With movies we publish on Sundays, where it is up for a week, and then it is taken down. But due to the absence of certain events the tradition of movie theme design have been discontinued.
This is not the way to do it, now please undo it. From what I've heard she's not interested anymore, because she knows its too late.
I will undo it for now, but I emphasize again, I did receive permission from SilverFlight to do it. So is your objection that you dislike the appearance of the theme, because if not, then I don't see any reason to take it down.
For some reason, we don't really seem to have hit things off well. I'm not trying to make things difficult for you. I'm simply trying to get things done. I'm perfectly willing to work within the guidelines to take care of things, but at times you've simply done things or told things without reference to any particular posted guidelines as far as I can tell. It's not the job of an admin or moderator to simply tell people "how things should or shouldn't be done." You have to work with us.
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.
Not really. I'm all about following common sense. I can see your intentions. You only want to create a page on the Frozen 2 Magic Guide so you can link stuff on other pages, which is not enough for an excuse. I noticed what you were doing. I know how it goes when it comes to creating book pages. They're created with little information and then abandoned with no further extensions intended.
PS: The images you uploaded were already up, and you didn't need to upload duplicates. If they were bigger quality, all you had to do was replace over the existing ones.
Alex - that was not my sole intention at all. Not only did I have every intention of adding more content to those pages, it is in fact my job. I am a Content Team Member for Fandom and have been assigned officially to post any and all content related to this film. As for the duplicated images, I do apologize for that. I did see after the fact that I had posted a duplicated image for the Secret River book. Regarding the concern on spoiler content - I was told previously that anything from published material is fair game. If that is not the case, then I would appreciate further direction to the appropriate policies, as I have been assigned to provide this material and I need to know what is and isn't off-limits.
Look I'm not forbidding you from creating the guide book. I never said that. You are permitted to make a page on that book based on your intentions, and you can undo the deletion. Bare in mind if it doesn't receive any major editing or attention that makes it worth keeping over time, it will eventually be deleted again measured by what I've already stated.
I've learnt you can't just go ahead and create any article. There are lots of things to think about. It is written that until the movie premieres no major spoilers will be leaked on the Wiki. Comments mentioning spoilers will be deleted, and reference links to leaks will be remove, including ones that are considered false. To make sure we don't receive any spoiler edits, all articles on new films are locked out until they premiere.
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.
