  • Stop deleting stuff

    • I'm not Lady Lostris, but I think it's been communicated to you very clearly why things were deleted. Do you have any questions about why things were deleted? I'm sure if there's any confusion we'd be more than happy to explain.

    • I can't do that, sorry. As administrator, it's my responsibility to make sure that there are no pages or images on the wiki that breach our policies. Your page did, so it had to be deleted. That said, I saved the content and messaged you about the reasoning for the deletion and offered you a better place to share your content, which I made sure was still available to you. As such, I don't really see what the issue is here.

      Also, the second page you created that got deleted was not done by me. Regardless of that though, so general respect and a friendlier way of conversing with your fellow community members would really be appreciated.

    • You put fanon information into a canon article. I'll never stop removing that. You're more than welcome to continue your fanon story in a fanon article though. If you need help on how to do that, please read out Avatar Wiki:Creating a fanon. If you still have questions afterwards, don't hesitate to ask.

  • Can we write fanfic blog posts on this wiki?

  • Why in would you delete categories like Category:Index or Category:Redirects? Why are they not simply used?

      Loading editor
    • What would be the use of those categories? Category:Index is unnecessary due to having Category:Avatar Wiki, which is a good SEO marker. Category:Redirects just serves no point in general.

    • The use would be to have pages that are not normal pages, like templates, redirects, categories (making them subcategories) etc. have categories as well, so that it is easier to find them and navigate between them.

    • Which is a purpose that is performed better by the Category:Avatar Wiki, so I don't see the problem?

  • When was this Wiki created?

      Loading editor
  • Hey there, brand new here, but have some experience editing in general. I've been working on pages like Suki's relationships, specifically the section about Sokka. I noted that you added the needs improvement template, noting "relationship pages =/= history", and I agree with what you're saying. I had added the section from Shells in the same format as the rest of the section, which basically was just a history of all of their interactions.

    However, I am wondering what the general approach to relationship pages should be, particularly for those that are in depth. For briefer interactions like between Suki and Katara, I fully understand how it can be summarized as such, with their general approaches and amenable behaviour. However, I'm unsure how to address more complex relationship that develop throughout the series and the comics (the comics in particular, as I am working to add that info, which seems to be lacking entirely). In this case, both Sokka and Zuko come to mind, as these are characters with whom she has extensive interaction. So how should these be phrased? Are the pages for Katara and Aang's relationship the ideal for this type of article?

    Personally, I would have added succinct analysis based on the interactions while extrapolating as little as possible (ie. Sokka's reactions upon seeing Suki might show he missed her, etc.) This doesn't seem to be in the pre-existing parts of the article, and I also didn't add anything like that to the section I wrote. Thus, is the idea to exclusively summarize their interactions in a concise format, or to try and write some insight into what we read/see?

    If this is a discussion that should be had on the War Room, or has been addressed previously, please let me know. I'm not fully aware of all of the guidelines on this wiki, so my apologies if this is something I should have known.

    • The approach we take in general on the wiki is to avoid extrapolating or adding personal opinion to articles. The text should reflect what was stated, and so any insight into the relationship between the characters should be based on what was said in the episode, comic, etc.

      In terms of what should and shouldn't be included, where the interaction between two characters concerns their relationship or provides insight into their relationship then it should be included. It is not always clear or obvious where this line is, which is why there is no written rule on what is and isn't acceptable; we prefer instead to allow editors to use their judgement or to discuss it among the wider community in deciding what should be added. Using a hypothetical example, I would say it falls into three categories:

      1. Aang and Katara take a trip on Appa and discuss their future together - this interaction clearly concerns their relationship so would be valid to include
      2. Aang and Katara take a trip on Appa and discuss her mother's death - this interaction is less obvious; the discussion isn't about their relationship, but aspects might be valid (e.g. Aang consoling Katara, Katara opening up to Aang). This could be added as a more general point about them growing closer
      3. Aang and Katara take a trip on Appa, but nothing of the trip is known - the interaction doesn't tell us anything, so there is no need to include it

      a As I said, there is subjectivity in deciding what is and isn't valid, and if there is disagreement the best option is always to discuss it.

      I hope this helps. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    • This sounds great - thank you for letting me know. I appreciate the thorough response and the examples in particular. I'll be adding material from the comics over the next week or so. Hopefuly my editing style is okay; I typically add anything relevant first as I read, then start examining the interactions more closely after the fact and remove redundant material.
