  • Hello J.S.!

    So, I've started a wiki for The Ravenwood Saga (Christian/Dark Fantasy/YA by Morgan L. Busse) and I'd love if you could give me any advice or explanations (especially) on how running a wiki works and what the different lingo means (e.g. ambiguous-something or rather XD). Anyway, I'd really appreciate it!

    Also, whenever I get it fully up and running, I'd love if ya'll'd be okay with perhaps affiliating with each other? No worries if you decide otherwise. 

    Thank you so much!

    • Thanks so much for the message, Kate! I'd love to help you with any explanations you may need, and I know Pinkpeony73 and Kilmarnock228 can help too! (They administrate a couple other wikis.) A good way to start is to edit your wiki's overall look and its main page. Have you uploaded a wordmark yet (the wiki-logo), or edited your theme colors/wiki-background yet? That stuff can be accessed and modified by going to Special:ThemeDesigner on your wiki (that would be your-wiki-name-here.fandom.com/wiki/Special:ThemeDesigner). If there's any feature on this wiki (or on our mainpage) that you'd like to know how to replicate, I'd be more than glad to help. Just send me a message! ;)

      Also, I'd personally be very excited to have your wiki affiliate with ours (if Peony and Kilmarnock agree to it, that is, which I don't think would be a problem). If you'd like to, you could probably join our Christian Fantasy Footer Wiki Project; I think your wiki would qualify! ;)

  • Hey, J.S.!

    Just wanted to check in with you, Celta-wise. First off, thank you so, so much for all your amazing feedback! You provide a perspective that's truly unique and thoughtful, and I'm so grateful to you for taking the time to read my little story. :)

    Second: so, as is obvious, I'm done with this draft. Yay! xD As you saw on the Hangout, I'm planning on starting to rewrite it in a few months, after I've made some progress on my TLK rewrite. The Hangout is still gonna be "running" even when I'm not writing, as I'll likely be dumping ideas and questions and such there. So feel free to stay on the Hangout or leave it. No pressure either way! I'll probably open for alphas for the next draft around late spring or early summer. If you're interested in being an alpha again, you can just let me know on the Hangout or, if it's all right with you, I could give you my email via a wiki chat. But again, absolutely no pressure to read; you did so much with this draft, so I totally understand if you'd rather not. And no pressure to answer immediately, either. I know you're busy right now; we've all got lives, after all, so don't worry about anything. ;)

    Again, I really appreciate all you've done to help me with this. Seriously, the next draft is going to be so much better thanks to you.

    I hope you had a Merry Christmas! :)

    • I signed the petition! I also made a post about it on YWW, my writing program. It's a great thing you're doing! :)

    • Wonderful!

      Thanks so much! I figure that even if Amazon decides to disregard the petition, we can't say that we didn't do anything. And that is what makes me feel happy inside. That and the fact that there are apparently so many other LotR fans who feel exactly as I do regarding these issues. :)

  • Hey J.S. do you think you could help me out with the Spoilers3 template I made for First Fowler/A Green Ember story books? It's serviceable, but it'd probably be good if we could make it a different color from the other Spoilers templates and see about getting the title text for First Fowler in there.

  • So are we not going to add a new quote and image for November?

  • Hey, J.S.! How are you?

    I was wondering if you would be interested in making a template to put at the top of pages that contain content that hasn't officially been released yet, such as The First Fowler and Ember's End? Here's an example from The Lion King Wiki. :)

    • That sounds great! I like how Mr. Smith is reserved when it comes to the romance. I feel like it's extremely easy to make love triangles that are overly mushy and/or ridiculous, and he successfully avoided that pitfall. I definitely don't think you can go wrong by using Mr. Smith's works as a prototype. (It's nice to know we both recognize and dislike bad romance.) XD

      Thanks for that info! It sounds like a wonderful place, much alike to the Christian Fantasy community I am acquainted with on Wattpad(although the site's unashamed promotion of LGBTQ+ stories is more than a little annoying for me). I should definitely join, although I don't think I'd be quick to post anything once I get started writing. (I can be a bit obsessive in getting everything perfect before I show my work to others.) Would you please supply me with a link? ;)

      Thanks for your interest! I opened on the 23rd, although I haven't yet started my "massive social media marketing campaign". XD I call my shop "Heartlight" for reasons rather lengthy to explain (although I certainly will if you request me to). It can be found at https://heartlightprintables.etsy.com.

      I have edited the template to comply with your request! ;)

    • Yes! I think these days, romance is something that needs to be handled carefully and with God in mind. S. D. Smith is a perfect example of this, and hopefully my writing will reflect it as well.

      Of course! They only accept new members twice a year, however, and I’m not sure if it’s currently open for application. But if it isn’t, I’d definitely consider joining the waiting list! Here’s the link: https://www.dohardthings.com/young-writers-workshop. And if you think you’re going to join, let me know! :)

      That’s awesome! I just checked it out. It’s beautiful, and I absolutely love the title and logo! Your prints are lovely as well. I really like the Samwise Gamgee quote one.

      Sweet! Thank you. :)

  • So J.S., I've noticed there's a link on your user page for a "Master Smith (Halfwind Citadel)". Do you happen to have a page reference or anything for that? I don't recall a Master Smith at Halfwind; only the two from Ember Rising.

      Loading editor
    • Thanks for the notification, Kilmarnock. I realize now that I was referring to Master Smith of Harbone Citadel. I get Harbone and Halfwind mixed up. ;)

      Nice work on all those new pages, by the way! :)

    • I figured it might be something like that.

      Thanks; I like to get rid of red links/wanted pages. I’m hoping to get all or most of the story ones cleared before First Fowler releases. There’s a few Wikia-based ones I’m not sure what to do with thought.

  • It’s been a long time. Kinda. The wiki looks good pal, And seemingly gaining more users. I have to say well done. Now I know it’s not just you but the whole administration team. But still a job well done. Running a wiki is hard. Easy to loose motivation. I hope to help around on this fandom, soon. Just weathering storms at the moment. This summer hasn’t exactly been the greatest, and new school year. But I wish to help with anything so, maybe you could tell me something that needs to be done? Or I can look for gaps.


    Also, love the profile picture, it remindes me of Strider (Aragorn) when he was at the Inn at the beginning of the LoTr adventure.

    How’s everything for you?

    • Sorry for the late reply. Schools getting rather heavy

      The first part of your ‘sermon’ described what pretty much goes on in me from time to time. For me, it was really hard and I mean, man it still is. I still go threw new emotions almost everyday. I get so confused xzD

      But, your points are valid and true. And, what I have to do is.. go threw the feelings and memories. No matter how much it hurts or exhausts me. In the end I know it’s gonna bring healing. Even though that seems so far away.

      As well as it’s true that, my rite of passage. And everything that’s happening to me now. Makes me yearn for Heaven. And It will feel so good when that day comes.


      Cayonan is spoken on the island that I lived. You wouldn’t find it on Google. xzD

    • No, that's fine. Sorry for this really, really, really late reply. ;)

      I'm glad that you were able to relate. It looks like we have much in common, and I'm glad I "met" you. I hope you are well, and that life is treating you well. Is there anything you'd like me to pray for you about? :)

  • Hey J.S., I was curious; are we keeping track of the various quotes and images that have been featured on the mainpage of the wiki? I know we have a category for articles, but I'm not aware of any means or mechanism by which we've been tracking the other two. Might be good if we could set something up if we haven't already, so we don't suggest the same quotes and images over and over again.

  • Hey J.S.! 

    I would like to submit something to the main page nomination for August, but I cannot figure out how. Pinkpeony said that you may be able to direct me. 

    Cheers,

    • Hello LuvGreenEmber! Have you ever edited a wiki template before? All you have to do is enter visual editing mode and click one of the headers in the text. (Each of the three headers and the normal text below them are part of three different templates; you can only edit one at a time, though.) When you click a template, the template will become highlighted; at this point, a little white rectangular thingy with the name of the template on it will appear over the right part of the selected template. Then you can simply click on the template name on the aforementioned white thingy and fill in the form.

      I hope this helps. :)

  • Hello, I'm just your regular old Green Ember megafan. Just wanted to say thanks for putting this wiki together and keeping it going. While it isn't a center for debate or discussion on the books (like another site I know), this is certainly a good resource when studying for the Green Ember trivia rounds! 

    Just a random get to know you question: How many times did you have to read the books to put this together??

    • Yeah. Ember Rising is my favourite though. As I said, I've read that one 20 times, so that's why I'm mostly editing the Ember Rising minor character's pages.
