Shear and DassemEdit

Hey, so what's going on with this character entry? Based on the ever growing size of the article I'm starting to think she is the most consequential character in the entire series. :) Dassem Ultor's childhood writeup is starting to go the same way. Remember, you just have to add a concise summary, not rewrite Erikson's prose. You don't really have to get very detailed to get the main points across. Something like "As a child on the Dal Hon Plains, Dassem Ultor fell into a sinkhole where he encountered a strange, old man" could replace the first two and a half paragraphs, for example.--ArchieVist (talk) 12:39, January 6, 2020 (UTC)

I think the Dassem section is much improved. Great job!--ArchieVist (talk) 16:08, January 7, 2020 (UTC)

Archiving mistake - help needed Edit

I took care of it, Pcwrcw. It's simple with the admin tools.--ArchieVist (talk) 04:11, January 10, 2020 (UTC)

Dassem's daughterEdit

Hi Pcwrcw. I have reinstated the speculation section on the page for Dassem's daughter as it does make sense the way the page is set up at the moment. There is no doubling up, whereas Nara's page uses a different format so make sense not to have the speculations section there.

I think both pages are now spoiler-friendly for readers of the original series as well as anyone starting out with the Path of Ascendancy books. Egwene of the Malazan Empire (talk) 12:27, January 28, 2020 (UTC)

Edit: Alternatively, we could add a spoiler alert box to Dassem's daughter's page instead of the speculations section - what do you think? Any preferences?Egwene of the Malazan Empire (talk) 12:34, January 28, 2020 (UTC)

I agree that a spoiler alert box is the best way to go. I'll also remove the name from the infobox. I don't think we should add speculations there. Something to take a look at elsewhere. What I have done is put the spoiler alert box under a speculations header. That should address the aspect that although it is of course extremely likely, we don't actually have positive confirmation that the two are the same at this point.

My pleasure. Constant tweaking to get it right is what this Wiki is all about :)

I missed it when it happened, but congrats on reaching 10k edits!--ArchieVist (talk) 03:14, February 2, 2020 (UTC)

Your work on those DPs has been outstanding, Pcwrcw. Congrats on achieving this amazing milestone! Egwene of the Malazan Empire (talk) 09:45, February 2, 2020 (UTC)

Logros T'lan ImassEdit

Please don't let a mistake stop you from patrolling. You didn't know what the German link was, but now you do, and it was easily correctable. The RCG change was no big deal either. The important thing was checking that the user change was factually accurate, which you did. I just made some stylistic updates. Besides, Egwene wouldn't have upped you to patroller status if she didn't think you could handle it. You may have noticed we admins make mistakes too. We're all just learning as we go.--ArchieVist (talk) 04:15, February 11, 2020 (UTC)

I'd like to second that statement from AV. Making sure content is accurate is the top priority of patrolling. Thanks for helping AV out with this mammoth task whilst I am unable to do a lot. Egwene of the Malazan Empire (talk) 17:22, April 2, 2020 (UTC)

Re: "Carrier" entry in the Mega DP Edit

It seems to me that if we have to make up a descriptive name for a character then it belongs on the unnamed portion of the Full DP whether or not they are on the Unnamed characters page. See also Aren treasurer. I'm sure there are plenty of counterexamples on the Full DP though.--ArchieVist (talk) 04:15, April 7, 2020 (UTC)

I don't think its ignorance to not know my previously unrevealed feelings on the matter. I've updated the DP page with a note explaining the unnamed character section. I also wouldn't put in a "Carrier see below" type message because that would defeat the purpose of having the unnamed section at all.--ArchieVist (talk) 13:27, April 7, 2020 (UTC)

The BonehuntersEdit

Hey, thanks Pcwrcw. I always know it's time to pack it in when my write ups become more and more verbose. The Bonehunters had almost twice the number of characters as Midnight Tides and it felt like it too. I still had about 40 to review when I gave up. I may come back and work on a few, but more likely I'll retreat back to handling odds and ends again for a few months.--ArchieVist (talk) 12:50, May 7, 2020 (UTC)

Message Wall/Forum Retirement links in Talk pagesEdit

FYI: If you get any wiki emails about some updates to old messages on your Talk pages, it's because I fixed some broken links caused by the forum/message wall technical retirements from two weeks ago. I replaced the old internal links with the new internal links. Cheers!--ArchieVist (talk) 01:15, September 25, 2020 (UTC)
