  • Hey Virvar! Hope everything is okay with you. I was wondering if you would be okay with me adding a sister wiki section to the main page to link to the 90210 Wiki as well as add such a "sister wiki" link to the global navigation, similar to what I did on the 90210 Wiki main page and its navbar (under the 90210 Wiki tab).

However, I do feel like there may be some additional benefit of linking to the other wiki for those people that are interested in the reboot (which also means that this wiki doesn't have to deal with it :-D ). I feel like the template allows for that easy link without being intrusive and while being easily ignored by those fans that just don't care :-D

      It also would not be on that many pages I believe. Were there many other crossovers besides Brenda, Kelly, Donna, Nat, and Jackie?

      I also linked to those three pages, as well as the overall series page, in the navbar on the other wiki.

      Hey, sorry I didn't get back before! Great idea, I think that works well. No other crossovers than those you mentioned :)

    • So I created the template and placed it at the bottom of the pages; doesn't look that intrusive and may be useful for some. Thanks for the help!

  • Hey Virvar, just wanted to quickly check in how things are going, as well as wish the wiki a happy twelfth birthday today! That's quite the achievement for a wiki. You may be super proud of all the work you've done here to get it to be in the condition it is today, so as far as I'm concerned, you both deserve cake today!!

    • Hi!

      Aw thanks so much! I'd no idea about the birthday, but indeed, a milestone!

      I'm just hoping everyone gets something good out of this wiki, I wanted it to be a hub for this childhood series of mine ;)

      Couldn't think of anything I wanted to bring up, do you have any thoughts on improvements/changes? :)

      Thanks again!!

    • That's a very nice goal indeed! Hehe, you're basically creating your own little "memoir"-wiki; if you should have kids and they ever ask you what you did when you were young, just point them here :-p

      The wiki is looking very good overall. At this point, I'm going to do my own little project of making sure this wiki and the 90210 USA Wiki have enough links to each other to sort of pull one another up since the shows are obviously related. No need to go through the trouble of merging them, but I'm just going to see they have sufficient links to each other to provide easy navigation (so if you randomly see me pop up some time, this is probably the reason why).

      The only thing I could suggest for this wiki as this point is an adjustment of the wiki logo to include the word "wiki", recreate the background to fit the proper size (as it now is flanked by this white rim for me, which doesn't look great), and adjust the favicon to be transparent. Which sounds like a lot but are generally small things with which I can help if you want. Perhaps it is also time to remove the Perry memorial note? Without much other notice for that on the wiki, it sort of comes across as being this wiki's or the show's tagline, which isn't the intention, obviously.

  • Hey Virvar, I was just checking things out around here, and one thing I noticed was that while there 72% of the traffic comes from mobile, there is no mobile main page set up. I think this would be beneficial to do, as to more easily guide the mobile visitors around on the wiki. I can help with this if you'd like. Just let me know what you think.

    • Hey Virvar, I hope you don't mind, but I removed some of the character pages and replaced them with just a more general link to the main pages of both series as well as the episode page. I also added the BH90210 category to the main page.

      I was thinking that you could perhaps also update the mobile page once or twice a month or so with a featured article of your choice. Just a thought. You're free to change any and everything of course.

  • Hi Virvar, I'm Lostris, and I will be taking over from Mandy as your Wiki Manager, since she was hired to become a full-time staff member and oversee things as a Community Manager. I hope you and I can continue in the same productive manner as you and her cooperated, so if you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., don't hesitate to leave a message on my wall or contact me on Discord (Lostris@4280) if you prefer that medium, and I will do my best to help. I'm looking forward to working together on this wiki. You've done a fantastic job keeping it going!

    In case you may not have read these before, I would also like to take this opportunity to highlight two blog posts regarding the "Unified Community Platform" (UCP for short).

    They're definitely worth a read, and somewhere next week, one of the biggest changes on the UCP, the one to the wiki editor, will be announced as well, so that's definitely something to look forward to!

    Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you could use any kind of help. Kind regards, Lady Lostris @fandom / Wiki.png

    • Hi Lostris,

      Thanks for your message! Sorry for the delay in replying.

      Thanks very much! That sounds great, will keep that in mind. Right now I can't think of anything I've considered about this wiki, but will let you know!

      Thanks!

      Kind regards,

    • Hey Virvar, glad to hear back from you! Don't worry about the delay, that happens, we all have things to keep us occupied. I'm glad to know you and the wiki are doing well. Just as a general note, if you ever have an idea for an exciting project for this wiki, that too is something you may come talk to me for.

      An speaking of things worth a read, as an editor, the following two links are definitely worth your attention:

      1. Fandom staff blog that gives us a more insight to the new UCP editor
      2. First release of the Unified Community Platform with a link to a test wiki where you can get a feel of what the new platform and especially the new editor will be like

      I you have any questions or concerns regarding this new platform, do not hesitate to contact me. I will try to provide you with as much clarity as possible. One thing I would like to emphasize beforehand is that the UCP is currently only happening on newly created wiki, so this wiki will remain as is for now. The UCP available on the test wiki is also not the final product; it's an early release to allow Fandom to start collecting data and smoothing out any and all bugs users encounter, as well as testing the system against more traffic than just the tester groups.

  • Hey Virvar,

    It's been great working with you! Once  I update the pages with Episode 6 info, I will have officially wrapped my work on this project. I always appreciated that you were on top of things and quite receptive to feedback. I never got around to helping you change the pages of the fictionalized actors (i.e Tori Spelling BH90210 to Tori Spelling (BH90210), but think pretty much between the two of us everything else regarding the reboot was handled. I hope that if there's a season 2, I can help be of service once more! 

    FD signing off!

  • Hey Virvar,

    Just wanted to let you know that I went in and formatted the actor pages of Ty, Vanessa and La La. While I only uploaded pics to put in the actor pages for Ivan, Karis and Natalie. If you find better ones to display on the infobox, that's okay. :)

  • Hey Virvar,

    FD here again. I didn't help you edit today but that's cause I was catching up on the two episodes that have aired and took some notes. I wanted to ask if you had any formatting ideas for how to add the info we get from a character from a given episode. LIke how would we add what happened with the BH90210 version of Gabrielle in The Reunion? If you don't have any ideas, I would suggest something like what I did on the PLL wikia (https://prettylittleliars.fandom.com/wiki/Alison_DiLaurentis#Series). We basically have a section for the series, and under the episode name's section we write what happened to that character in that episode.

    • Cool!

      True, that would be cool if she could be a part of it!

      I made a separate episode template for the BH90210 episodes, as the other one's more designed with the '90s theme in mind and thought the new show should have its own look.

  • Hi Virvar,

    FD here, I was just curious if you would object to change the formatting to the BH 90210 fictionalized versions of the cast. for example instead of having them written as Ian Ziering BH90210  , it could instead be written as Ian Ziering (BH90210 Version). I think this would make it easier for any wiki users that come to hear to easily distinguish the real life versions of the cast and the fictionalized versions they are playing in the BH 90210 show. Let me know what you think.

    • Hi!

      Sure, mainly did it to avoid parentheses. ;) But yep, definitely! Would Character Name (BH90210) be cool, do you think? :)

      Kind regards,

    • Yup! I think that works works just fine!
