Maybe this sounds weird, but some here are not english native speakers....(like me...), i don't speak english wel, but i read kotlc in english...and I was ust wandering if i could actually type in another lanuage...maybe not the editings but comments..becuase I saw some french comments here...is that okay??? or do i have to type in english???
For sure! I think everyone should be able to communicate however they feel most comfortable. I think having edits in another language could work if you make a separate page (example: Sophie Elizabeth Foster: French) and then translate the English Sophie page into French (or anyother language). However, since I cannot read another language (aside from a small amount of French) people edit on those pages would have to be very honest and not vandalize these pages.
Comments can be in any language users are most comfortable in. Google Translate is a great idea and can work both ways- if you write in another language and wish to comment in English then feel free to copy and paste but otherwise English users who want to read comment in other languages can also use Google Translate to see what the original comment said.
Hi!! It's really great to see you back here :) I'm not sure we've met -- I'm Gildie, and I've been on the Lost Cities Wiki for over a year and I LOVE this site! I'm not sure how I can thank you for everything you've done here -- I know it's grown so much since you were last here, but without you, this site wouldn't be nearly as amazing as it is today :)
Asdfghjkl I haven't been on here in so long but I need someone to tell me who updated the background!! I'm seriously in love- it looks so good 🤩 If someone could please tell me who made it so I can tell them how amazing it is I'd be very grateful!!! Thank you!
I like it a lot! I especially like "The World" tab- there's so much cool stuff in the books that are hard to classify into categories but you did a really good job! It all seems like an intuitive way to find things which is exactly what you need 😄
I like it a lot! When I first started really doing coding on this wiki I looked at other, bigger (at the time, holy we've grown so much) wikis and tried to replicate their code on here. I'm really glad now that people are being taught these things without needing to look to other websites and trying to teach themselves! Everyone on here is so talented 🤩🤩🤩
Honestly, one of the things I love so much about this wiki is how wonderful all the contributors are! This is such an amazing community and I love how ready people are to mentor others and how ready everyone is to learn! I love seeing people inspired by these books and by this wiki! Working on this wikia is one of the reasons I choose to continue my education into website design and I really love seeing people inspired like I was and able to find guidance from other amazingly inspired people!
There's been so, so many people who've made invaluable contributions to this wiki (including you, you've been on here for almost as long as I can remember!!). I love seeing how everyone's ideas come together and keep this wiki active even when waiting for a new book to be released! I would have never thought to set up a mentoring activity or any of the other cool features on my own. I think it's a wonderful idea you've come up with! I'm excited to see what ideas you continue to come up with in the future 😄
Awww, thank you! It's all thanks to you that it exists! You've put so much work into building the pages and the community and designing the wiki and its function and everything, and your leadership is invaluable! ❤️ And I completely agree; this community is so wonderful!
Thank you; you're so sweet 😍😍😍! I'm excited to see what this wiki will be doing next with Legacy's release. I'm (impatiently) waiting to see what's going to happen next for Sophie and the gang (is there a better name for all of them? Team SFKDBLTMW Sophie, Fitz, Keefe, Dex, Biana, Linh, Tam, Marella, Wylie????), but I think I'll need to review what happened in Flashback first 😋
(Discord is super awesome and I’ve found that it really helps wiki owners/admins/moderators have a nice place to chat privately because Lc doesn’t work quite as well for that purpose due to its removal of history)
I recently made a Discord account (after confusing it with disqus, but that's a whole other story) under wonderstruck111 but I have no idea how to work it at all! I've tried to find communities that I know have Discord and all I got was error messages. Long story short, all my dealings with Discord makes it seem like I don't know how to work technology orz
Hi, I'd like to ask if my admin status can be removed. Over the past severals years I have enjoyed being on this wiki, but now I feel as though it's not as important to me, especially since I have had a falling out with KOTLC, and therefore am gone for long periods of time. I have no personal problems with the wiki, or anyone on it, I just have moved on to different things and it's wrong for me to have a place of authority with people asking questions of me when I can't help them as well as others.
Yes! The founder was whoever this is ^. By the time I joined the wiki he had made three pages and then left so I filled out forms and adopted the wiki hoping to build it up to the wonderful community it is now!
okay this is really old and I'm not sure how I found this, but Coltan Shone probably left the wiki for real life reasons. Like, they may have had something happen, but who knows. They weren't able to keep working on it anymore, so Icecream111 brought it back to life!
I'm sure there was a valid reason why Coltan left, and if there wasn't the wiki was pretty dead, so it didn't matter too much at the time.
Hey, so sorry to bother you (again) but I have been getting many requests and suggestions to create a page made for Fanfictions and short stories that the users come up with and many users here seem to want that feature but on the other hand, the page wouldn't be considered factual or informative so I don't think it could be a page but I thought maybe you thought otherwise? Or not create the page.
What I have suggested to one user is to create blog posts, comment and even use message walls for the stories. I have also come up with the idea to create a Forum board called 'Fanfictions and Short Stories' where users can create threads with their fanfics. Thank you!
At one point (like three years ago) I made a separate wiki for fanfics about KotLC but I don't think anyone used it and I can't find it by googling it anymore- probably because it wasn't popular at all. I think your idea for blog posts or forum boards sounds like a much better idea than a separate wiki ;). I like the idea of keeping the wiki pages factual and having something else to post theories or fanfics to but if you (and others) feel like the wiki would grow more by allowing people to post fanfics wherever then I support your decisions!
Hey, so Preston asked us if we wanted to be an Affiliate with his wiki. And we need a summary and everything and I thought I should message you and SophitzFoster instead of doing it myself since I'm not sure if I'm allowed or I should do this alone. So I was thinking maybe we could come up with a summary together instead of me doing it myself.
Hey! So I'm the new admin and I have recently added some new features which I thought I should tell you since you're co-owner. So I have emailed Fandom a lot and they have enabled:
The Community Feature. Which is something that keeps track of the top edits, suggests pages that need to be edited, admins and other things. You can read more here .
Auto-Refresh, so if you go onto 'Recent Wiki Activity', on top there is something that says 'Auto-Refresh' and it basically refreshes the page whenever something new happens automatically, I added the Auto-Refresh code into JS and Fandom approved.
Live Chat, since we have JS, I put a code in for LC and Fandom has approved so now it shows when people type and there is a special Emoji feature.
I added the 'Wam' thing at the side of your screen which keeps track of the wikis progress and growth overall. Did you know that we're number 44 top book wiki?
Discord, so to keep the explanation simple, Discord is basically like LiveChat except we're all in a server called 'KotLC Chats' (Which is my server that I created) and in that server, we have so far 3 text channels, one is called 'Main' for the main chat, the next is called 'Ships' where users can talk about ships and one is called 'Theories' to discuss theories. All you need to do is press 'Connect' and users chose nicknames and profile pictures and we can all chat. You can also DM and do Private Group Chats.
I added other mini features like colouring admin's names and other stuff which I can't really remeber at the moment.
This all looks awesome! The discord bit looks really cool the bit I've looked at it :) I am also super excited that we're the number 44 book wiki! This group of people are so dedicated and I'm so happy so many people love these books as much (if not more) than I do!
Hey so Ccow the Hydrokinetic has asked me if we could make a page for wiki affiliates, so on the page I guess we would have links and a description and wordmark from that wiki which is related to KoTLC. It's technically not a page related to the series so I was wondering if we would be allowed to make it. Thanks!
