  • Hey UpnCbs, how are you? The Bachelor remains as popular as ever, as ABC proves with its latest The Bachelor - The Greatest Seasons Ever. This wiki should probably capitalize on this as well, seeing how the show started airing two weeks ago, with the fourth episode coming up shortly, and create another show page for this bachelor series as well! Staying on top up current shows should probably be at the top of the priority list, to ensure that people will come to know of this wiki as a current and up-to-date resource for these things.

  • Hey UpnCbs06, I’m Antonio, and I’m a Community Manager on Fandom’s TV and Movie community team, which, as you already know, is the team supporting this community and also involved in obtaining and keeping the Official Wiki status for ABC Wiki. I’m messaging you in Discord to discuss the progress of some points that Lady Lostris has been mentioning in other messages to you. My Discord ID is: bola#1331. See you there!

    • Hi Antonio,

      It’s going well, I’m currently just going along with each show page. I may have forgotten to do some of the show page updating, but I promise you that I haven’t entirely forgotten about them and I will eventually update them to match with the Manual of Style. Thanks for messaging me.

  • Hey UpnCbs, as you probably noticed, I made some rounds (though hardly even covered the majority of the pages around here) to update the pages with some quality issue notices, mainly indicating the layout problem, a future update, and a need to be expanded (they're all grouped in the Category:Needs help). Some of the pages that got tagged are pages that are featured on the main page, which is sort of problematic, as we do not want to highlight pages that have content issues. In that same light, Shark Tank still hasn't been created even though it is up on the main page. Could you maybe review those pages one of these days to fix those issues as soon as possible, or at least for those pages featured on the main page? Thanks in advance for the quick assistance!

  • Hey Upn, hope you're doing well!

    I got around to creating an ABC Wiki:Layout guide and to update the MediaWiki:Community-to-do-list. The latter contains two pages that deserve some special and semi-urgent attention, namely the:

    The lists I added there are pulled from the main page and the shows I mentioned on our other conversation. I was wondering if you'd be up to it to get through them the following weeks, say by June 15? Since this is an official ABC Wiki, I reckon it deserves a bit of extra attention, and those pages seemed a good place to start. I created a preloaded page, which should make page creation more easy for everyone.

    Would that be okay with you?

  • Hey Upn, I just created the For Life series page, and I think we can perhaps use that as a point of reference to how we, for now at least, could go about styling our series pages.

    I think it is too much upkeep to cover everything about the series (and that will result in a Wikipedia-copy anyway), so perhaps, as a wiki, we should focus on creating short, concise pages that offer basic content to give people an idea of what the series is about (so basic plot summary, main cast/character, and an episode list), add a trailer so they can see if they like it, and most importantly, add links to the specific wiki (both in the infobox as on the page itself). To that end, I "borrowed" the {{CE}} and {{SE}} templates from the Netflix Wiki, which allows for easy linking to actor and character pages present on the other wiki, as well as to the episode pages, respectively.

    While the series infobox also holds way more parameters than I filled out for the For Life page, I was thinking that we should perhaps limit the info given there too to the minimum to keep the focus really on being a quick overview and guiding people to the more specific wiki on the subject.

    What do you think about this approach?

    • I just received word of two more pages we shoul add. There are no wikis for these show yet, but they will be created over time once a Wiki Manager has been assigned. With the ABC partnership, we're tying to be really accommodating toward new and current current.

      1. Call Your Mother (comedy) - Wikipedia:Call Your Mother

      Writer(s): Kari Lizer
      Studio: Sony Pictures Television, ABC Studios
      Logline: This multicamera comedy follows an empty-nester mom who wonders how she ended up alone while her children live their best lives thousands of miles away. She decides her place is with her family and as she reinserts herself into their lives, her kids realize they might actually need her more than they thought. (Multi-camera)
      Cast: Kyra Sedgwick, Rachel Sennott, Joey Bragg, Patrick Brammall, Emma Caymares, Austin Crute

      1. Big Sky (drama)

      Writer(s): David E. Kelley
      Producer(s): Ross Fineman, C.J. Box
      Studio: A+E Studios, 20th Century Fox Television
      Logline: In this procedural thriller, private detective Cassie Dewell partners with ex-cop Jenny Hoyt on a search for two sisters who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote highway in Montana. But when they discover that these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, they must race against the clock to stop the killer before another woman is taken.
      Cast: Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury, Ryan Phillippe, John Carroll Lynch, Dedee Pfeiffer

      ABC article about it.

      Sorry to be dumping this all so on you. I don't know if you have another preferred way to get a to-do list out there? Perhaps we should add one to Special:Community under the "from the community" section to get the word out. You can then just remove the series of which you have created a page. Then again, since it's mainly still just you being active here, the result of who's doing the work will still be the same, sorry 😅

      I was also thinking that we could perhaps work with preloaded page templates and format, so whenever someone creates a new page for a show, the series infobox is immediately loaded, along with the headings "About the show", "Cast", "Episodes/Seasons", "Production", "Trailer", and "See more", underneath which a short (and hidden, to be removed) explanation is added to what info should go there. That may make things easier for everyone to create pages in the same unified fashion.

      In that same light, I would like to set up a Manual of Style page as well as a minor policy/guideline page to get the word out for how we'd like things to be done around here, what the scope of the wiki is. Would that be okay with you?

  • Hey UpnCbs, congrats on becoming to new admin to this place! You already know this, but I am the Wiki Manager assigned to this community, so I'll serve as your primary point of contact should you ever want to get in touch with a full-time Fandom staff member. Additionally, I'll also provide support on a more local level, so if you have any issues (this could be something design related, editing problem, or perhaps even a social dispute, to give some examples), don't hesitate to reach out, and I'll see what I can do to help solve the problem! Next to problems, I'm also here to help you get fun ideas off the ground, so if you ever need some help, just drop me a message, here or on Discord, whichever is easiest.

    As the new admim, you seemed like the person to get in touch with about creating a page for the For Life series, which has its own wiki. I think we can just copy some content on the series and transfer it here to serve as a general page and add a link to the wiki so people can easily find out more if they're interested! Would that be something you'd be willing to set up?

    I'm reworking the infoboxes to 1. be portable, and 2. include a link to the series, much like what's happening on the Netflix Wiki, which will make interwiki navigation much easier between this wiki and the more specific ones. With the long weekend coming up, I hope to finish it then.

    Once that's done, I will also make work about implementing the new design for this wiki, so excited about that!

    Looking forward to start working with you!

    • Okay Thanks Lostris, I’ll definitely be making those pages. Quick question, are these pages going to be imported or simply copied and pasted?

        Loading editor
    • Hey Upn, good to hear back from you! I'm checking some things to complete some final tweaks to the new design, so one of these, you'll most definitely see the big change.

      Considering the wiki's theme will also be changed, this does mean that some of the css coding will also be removed to make sure everything shows up as it is supposed to. Considering a lot of it is dev wiki import, those things can easily be reinstated if necessary, but in general the idea for the wiki would be "less is more".

      I'll also be uploading a new infobox template, the Series infobox, which will replace the existing, non-portable {{Infobox Television}}, and the portable but seldom used Telivsion Series infobox, because the goal is to also streamline the use of infoboxes. It'll be some work transferring the info in the existing ones to the new one, considering not all parameters are the same, but I'm sure the result will be wordt it. Hope you're up for the task to help revamp this wiki and truly get it off the ground and up to the official status that it has!
