I was strolling around in the wiki and I noticed something we could improve: while we have very precise categories, for example, for the City Watch and Grand Guard members, the same can't be applied for other characters/groups. The Brigmore Witches, Delilah included, are under the category of "Supernatural", which includes a lot of things like powers, runes and so on. It could be more precise and less vague adding a categorie for them ("Brigmore Witches"?). Same with the "Gangs" category (Bottle Street, Whalers, Hatters, Howlers...).
I hope I managed to explain myself clearly; otherwise, I'm sorry.
(Also: in the Italian version of Dishonored, Callista Curnow is written as "Kalista Curnow"; can I add this to her trivias?)
I wanted to ask you when an user is allowed to create a page about unseen characters, like Captain Galloway's. In other words, what are the requirements. I wanted to create a page about Fenella Reid, an unseen character mentioned in Dishonored 2 by three written notes: Letter from Boyle Accounting Service, Anonymous Letter and Warehouse Key. There is enough material for an article, but I wasn't sure after reading the Manual of Style; so, I thought it was a better idea asking to a moderator.
Thank you for your attention, hoping I didn't bother you in any way.
Greetings! My apologies for so late a reply to your message.
I double-checked the notes in question that you linked and I don't see any problem with doing a page for that character.
As for requirements for an Unseen Character there isn't really a set of them as far as I know; it's more of a case by case basis. Usually though, we kinda choose characters who appear in more than one note and who have a bit more information than just their name or title. Appearing in multiple expansions also helps such as with the case of Captain Galloway.
However, we also make exceptions with characters such as Jelly who was kind of a fan/community favorite making only two appearances in notes and not having a lot of info. Two moderators (Piko and myself) actually consulted about this in Live! Chat before the page was made and we weighed the ins and outs of it before proceeding though.
That said, you may proceed with your new page whenever you wish and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask. :)
Hi. I'm a huge Dishonored fan and frequently visit the Dishonored Wiki. I was looking at the page on the Burglar challenge and noticed it doesn't include a trivia entry relating to how you (for unknown reasons) wield the Assassin's blade instead of Corvo's sword when playing the "Expert" version of the challenge. I think it's an interesting tidbit of information, arguably worthy of being a trivia point on the page. What do you think?
Thanks for all the work you've put into running this wiki!
My sincere apologies for taking this long to get back to you. :(
Yes, if you have trivia related to the Burglar challenge that is not up on the page, please feel free to add it. I don't usually play the Dunwall City Trials, never really play on expert, and it's been so long that even if I had done the two former things, I don't remember.
Thank you for your interest in the wiki and again my apologies for taking so long a period to reply.
Hey, ich habe gesehen, dass du auch im deutschsprachigen Dishonored Wiki aktiv bist, daher formuliere ich mein Anliegen mal auf deutsch. Ich bin der Leiter einer interatkiven Schauspielgruppe und arbeite momentan an einer Geschichte, die im Dishonored Universum spielt. Die anderen beiden Hauptgeschichten entspringe komplett meinem Gedankengut und der Kreativität der restlichen Köpfe dieser Gruppe. Ich belese mich schon seit einigen Tagen in diesem Wiki über die Welt von Dishonored und bin von eurer Arbeit ziemlich überwältigt. (Ein Lob an dieser Stelle) Ich müsste für einen erfolgreichen Verlauf der Geschichte nun Informationen aus diesem Wiki, mit dazu gedichteten Charakteren und Städten verbinden. Anschließend wollte ich diese inoffiziellen Informationen in unser Schauspielwiki hochladen. Im Endeffekt habt ihr euch aber die Arbeit gemacht die ganze Lore aus den Dishonored Spielen herauszuschreiben und ich hätte ein schlechtes Gewissen dabei mein Vorhaben in die Tat umzusetzen ohne mit jemanden Rücksprache gehalten zu haben. Es bleibt zu erwähnen, dass wir nicht kommerziell arbeiten, es geht nur darum ein paar Menschen mal eine Auszeit vom Alltag zu gewähren. Weiterführend würden wir in jedem Beitrag einen Link zum englischsprachigen Dishonored Wiki hinzufügen.
Greetings! I was wandering around the wiki (and let me tell you, you all did a really great job here) and noticed a little detail: there isn't any page for Mariah, a witch enemy you can encounter in Dishonored 2 during "The Clockwork Mansion" mission (she will appear on Lower Aventa after rescuing Sokolov). She also carries a note, where you can learn her name, which is recorded here among the others.
I was wondering if I could create her page, but being an user who never contributed before, I tought it was wiser asking to an admin the permit before anything. Being an assiduous visitor here, I'm pretty accustomed to the wiki's format and style rules, but asking doesn't hurt, does it?
Thank you for the attention, hoping it wasn't a bothersome question.
I just read the page, in order to assimilate my potential flaws. Thank you for the review. I'll make sure to be more careful next time, looking forward to a collaboration with y'all in the future (even though, I suppose this isn't... the best moment, considering the hiatus of the franchise).
I'm sorry for bothering you again, but I have a question (and I hope this is the right place). I wanted to edit Jacobi's page, adding all the informations about his childhood revealed in My Family's Bones. However, I can't manage to add the reference, and a wording continues to pop out, saying that tag ref exists, but no references/ tag was found.
I also cheked the manual of style and other pages to get an idea about an eventual error in my coding, but I can't find it. Could you kindly help me? Also, should the reference be applied after all that biography part? It's not a simple sentence, after all, and I would not like to make a mistake.
Hey there, Geist. First off, long time no see; it's good to see you're still around. :)
More importantly though, as the last of the old guard who's still kicking around, I was wondering what your thoughts are on me adding IPA pronunciation guides for major characters, locations, and the like.
Actually, "pronunciation guides" are very compact and are meant to immediately succeed the name as stated in the beginning of the page, on each page. Thus, for Corvo, it would look something like this: Corvo Attano (/ˈkɔrvoʊ əˈtɑnoʊ/) is the protagonist...
Admittedly, for people not familiar with the IPA it may be frivolous, but they are pretty standard for most proper names on Wikipedia and the like, if that's any indication of their usefulness.
Hi it's Ann. I was gonna make a page for Blake's Sister who i met in the flooded district. She is never call by her name i checked everything and talked with her brother and the survivors but i didn't found her name she is only called Blake's Sister. I saw The Dressmaker page that's why i was gonna make a page for her, since we don't even know his name. But I wanna ask your opinion first. I know little things about her but not her name. Should i make it or not.
To your query, I would probably say that we shouldn't make a page for her with only Blake's Sister as a title.
A while back when Dishonored's DLC was still new a group of us discussed certain minor characters (both in DMs and on the Live! Chat service here). There were characters we wanted to make pages for but we agreed that unless they were named or were very unique, we wouldn't make a page for them.
For example, before you discovered the name of Isabelle we had wanted to make a page for the turncoat witch, but since we hadn't discovered it, we left the idea alone. Great work, btw, on locating that! :)
The only exceptions we really have, that I can think of are: the Dressmaker (as you pointed out) but he has a very unique story wrapped about him; the Wyrmwood Witch who again has a unique story/premise about her and the fact she is the primary behind-the-scenes antagonist of The Wyrmwood Deceit comics, and Mrs. Brimsley - with the latter resting right on the cusp of what we would consider acceptable.
For Blake's sister though, we have neither a first or even last name to go on and she isn't as involved as the former two examples I listed above. If we had any way of designating her beyond just being the sister, I would gladly welcome the new page, but for now I would have to say no. I did discuss this with a fellow admin offsite before just making a decision.
If you do have any information you'd like to add, you can put it on Blake's page as we already have a little information for her there already.
Hi! My name is Moviesign, and I’m the Fandom Wiki Manager for Dishonored Wiki. I am here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. If you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, styling, templates, bots, etc., please contact me on my message wall / talk page.
Here are some handy links for help with wiki features:
Is it ok if I create a page that lists all artifacts? We already have one for abilities and there are some artifacts that derserve to be mentioned but don't have enough information to have their own page (Granny Rag's hand, the Altar, Black Mirror).
I think we're still missing pages for gears and stuff from DOTO, or may need to spruce them up.
Still, I'm starting to think we should stick to in-article links to categories instead of using navboxes. The problem is that Wikia's sad excuse of a search tool also scans texts from navboxes. For example, just searching for "Loulia" brings up 90 page results instead of 5. And so ironically, the more we add navboxes to facilitate navigation between pages, the more it makes it difficult to search for anything.
Tbh, I could have made navboxes for DOTO's characters, gears and other stuff. I just withheld doing so because of this situation.
I am not a fan of NavBoxes (serach my history for this - circa 2016 especially) for precisely the same reasons as Pauolo. He and I had a good conversation about this a while back as I recall, and all of his concerns and problems he offers mimic my own for why NavBoxes are more of a pain than an aid.
Unfortunately, it seems that Wikia, now Fandom, has not fixed or addressed this issue yet.
Honestly, that brings me to something I wanted to discuss with you. This edit here is an example.
I ask that you do not start rearranging words and phrases simply to comply with a preferred method of your own. We've had an incident like this before with another user that resulted in a temporary ban for unnecessary changes and the equivalent of badge-hunting. In fact the switching of the word "mission" that you did was one of the problems we had with this user.
As a wiki that has a broad spectrum community contributing to it, there will always be different levels of writing ability and preferred usage of terminology. Unless there is an occasion that warrants a change, the terminology should be left alone. If the change brings something more to the article, clarifies or makes a statement easier to read, or corrects improper information and grammar, then it's fine. Otherwise it should be left alone.
I'm hoping this concern will not become a problem with any of our current user base as I really don't want a repeat of 2017's issues.
For that edit, I simply thought the grammar was incorrect. Afaik, you only put noun before names in case of historical figures or geographical landmarks (King Lear, river Thames). I wasn't trying to be a smartass or enforcing uniformity.
