I have a digital copy of the complete Protector of the Small series and one of Trickster's Queen from my library and they include a new short story about Bonedancer and a sneak peak of the upcoming Tempests and Slaughter. It might be worth a look at your library to see if they have the most up-to-date digital copies to included these bonuses as well. :)
Glad to see you’re back, I thought for a moment you’d left me here by myself...
Btw, since I noticed you edited his page: I think for Dunevon’s page, that it’s fine to leave Rubinyan as his successor, but I don’t think Imajane really belongs there. After all, she didn’t succeed Dunevon as King. She and Rubinyan may have ruled together, but we don’t show Thayet as a successor to Roald V, even though she rules with Jon. Thayet’s predecessor was Lianne... what do you think?
One more question. Could you take some time going through the Wanted Pages links and edit the archived talk and blog pages that they appear on to remove the bad links (like ones that are misspelled or older versions of pages that had name changes) so they don’t show on Wanted Pages anymore? I think we are getting close to being able to see all the wanted pages that are left, but those in particular are Admin-only and I can’t do anything about removing them. I’ve added several pages over the last week or so to try to take care of some pages higher up the list, and have a few that I removed (and noted to myself on my Notes page, to link back to once pages are created) hoping to get to the end of List since it maxes out at 1000 pages.
I don't agree. The successor for a king regnant is whoever becomes regnant after him. If you look at William IV of England's page on wikipedia, he is titled as King but his successor is still Queen Victoria since she succeeded him as the monarch regnant. Since Imajane and Rubinyan are co-monarchs who acceded the throne at the same time, they would both be listed as successors to Dunevon.
Since Jonathan succeded his father before marrying Thayet, I think it's fine to leave Thayet out of it because she didn't rise with Jon at the same time. But that's just me. We could add her, but Imajane definitely belongs there with Rubinyan as Dunevon's successor. If Imajane was consort (which would not have made sense because she was the Rittevon), then I would agree that she does not belong as Dunevon's successor, but she was co-regnant. That is why I don't think Thayet should be listed as Lianne's successor, as Lianne was technically a consort, not a co-monarch, and Thayet is very distinctly a co-monarch.
I can look into the Wanted Pages but I know that my time on here will be sporadic for the next month or so. I gave you admin rights to offset that. One thing to keep in mind, it shows you a lot of templates for the Wanted Pages. Please don't mess with those since there is a disconnect and perfectly functioning and created templates on the site are being listed in Wanted Pages.
One thing though, and I forget if we came to a conclusion about this. Aly the redirect has been deleted, but the problem is that Aly is what many readers know her by. So if they come to the wiki and search for Aly, Alianne Crow doesn't even pop up. I think that's a bit of a problem. I don't think there's anything wrong with having canon nicknames be redirects. I don't think that looks messy because it's part of the universe, not misspelled, and will only further help whoever comes on this wiki looking for information. Especially if that nickname is what most readers know her by and what she is referred to throughout the books by most characters.
I see what you mean about Rubinyan and Imajane, now that you’ve explained your side. I NEVER mess with the templates, I don’t want to accidentally delete something that shouldn’t be so have shied away from all of those. I haven’t yet gotten around to adding back redirects, but Aly is a good one to include. The redirects List is cleaned up now, so add back any you think we should have, no problem! :)
Why did you change the title of Baird’s infobox from Duke Baird to just Baird? That spot is for the name they’re known by and he is only ever referred to as “Duke Baird” in the novels. It looks very weird to me to just have “Baird” in that spot on his page, since he’s never called that in the books.
If you removed it because his title “Duke of Queenscove” is listed right below, I would like to say that it does not bother me in the slightest to have his name with title listed above, and his full title listed below. I think the infobox names should be what they’re know by, so for example, “Merric of Hollyrose”, “Princess Shinkokami”, “Numair Salmalín”, “Duke Baird”, “Jonathan IV”.
I can see where titles change that leaving them off would be better, like Jon being a prince and a king in the books or Raoul being “Sir” and then “Lord”, but especially for characters like Duke Baird who was only ever referred to as “Duke Baird”, I think that title belongs there as his “name” in the infobox.
And especially when two characters have the same first name, the infobox is a big clue as which character the article is about. In this case it distinguishes his page as that of Duke Baird as opposed to Prince Baird.
I think it flows better especially when the title is right underneath the name, and that's why it doesn't look very good to me if the title is echoed right below. But in the end, if you strongly think it should be changed, go ahead. And I'm not sure who put Numair's infobox to read Master Numair, but it 100% was not me and I definitely think it should have his last name like you say it should.
I also think George Cooper's infobox should read George Cooper, instead of George of Pirate's Swoop. If we're going off what he is most known by, it's "George Cooper". And that's technically the name he kept even as the Baron.
I agree about George. I think perhaps the name bolder in the first paragraph should be his most recent name, but I really do think that the infobox names should be what they’re referred to in the books/ most known by. Definitely should be George Cooper.
I like the Liege Lord addition you made to the RoyalNoble template. :) Can you add it to the main Character template and the two Commoner templates as well? I can add them this evening if you don’t have time before then. I’m currently at work, just checking in, on break at the moment.
I think just in the position categories, titles are sort of their own thing.
Allegiance would be good to add right before affilitation, for things like countries or monarchs. It would definitely be a good add for Tristan's page, as even though his origin is unknown, he definitely had allegiance to Ozorne and Carthak!
