Welcome[edit source]

Hi, welcome to Merlin Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Balinor page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Sophielou (Talk) 18:48, December 19, 2009

Categories[edit source]

Hi there, I see you enabled the achievements, sadly this also draws a lot of edits which I would see as rather counterproductive, for example adding categories is one of the magnets, people start adding them for every tiny detail, but in fact it is doing more harm, even if they act in good faith. I suggest making some sort of draft what can be categorized and what not. I saw some really unnecessary examples on pages. I contacted [[1]] on that matter, but the user keeps adding categories on endless pages. I hope you understand my concerns. Greetings — ochristi (t·c) 21:48, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

Just look at pages like Morgause or Kilgharrah. Could you please respond on the same page, it is way easier to follow conversation this way. — ochristi (t·c) 18:20, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Spotlight Request[edit source]

Hi. Merlin Wiki looks good and I have added it to the approved spotlight list. Please keep an eye on Special:UncategorizedPages -- there are a few articles in there right now. I categorized the ones I could figure out but there are still a few more to do :). -- Wendy (talk) 01:28, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hello, thank you for welcoming me on this Wiki. I hope that I will be a useful member of this Wiki. Please, respect my English, thank you. ... :D

Quick Question about my profile:[edit source]

I've had a couple of people editing the "My favorite pages" section on my profile and adding random pages that I don't want on there. Is there any way to prevent this? Thanks! LadyTristan 20:53, October 5, 2011 (UTC)

Article consistency[edit source]

Hi. Have you seen this? I'd like to help make the article pages more consistent, something I have experience with on other wikis. But every wiki's different, and I don't want to step on anybody's toes by messing with a page in an unwelcome way. Since you've been around a while and are the only active bureaucrat, I figure you might know which approach the community prefers. --Tulipclaymore 00:51, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

In what way exactly? --MrThermomanPreacher 12:37, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
Well, look at this section of Guinevere's page as an example. It fluctuates between present and past tense for no reason, sometimes within the same sentence. That's confusing, hard to read and doesn't leave a good impression. It can be fixed in several ways, as detailed on the talk page. This wiki does not have, as of yet, custom guidelines (except for the one "stay in-universe whenever possible" rule), so I'm unsure what the community prefers in practice (-> what the unwritten preferences are). --Tulipclaymore 13:54, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of redirect pages[edit source]

Hi, deleting of redirect pages is bad for consistency of wikis, there are pages eventually linking to that article name, before it was moved. Deleting them will break those links, same on older revisions, even if the link has been updated. They do no harm and keep the wiki together. — ochristi (t·c) 20:57, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

Pointless as in, someone still has to update hundreds of links? Please just take a look at Special:WantedPages. Only for different lemma of Merlin now exist over 150 dead/red links around the wiki. — ochristi (t·c) 16:09, October 10, 2011 (UTC)


User deleting content[edit source]

Do I need to inform you when a user is deleting the contents of entire pages (i.e. the home page, Merlin, Morgana, Arthur, Gaius, etc. ) I've tried to undo as many edits as I can, but the user keeps deleting the content. The user's name is Bobcards.

LadyTristan 02:26, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

please note that i have never deleted anything. do u think some won got into my account and did this? please answer back as soon as u can. i will change my password if you recommend it. thanks. --Bobcards 21:17, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

Locking the home page?[edit source]

Could I suggest that we lock the home page? I've had to restore it 3 times in the past couple days after someone has removed all the content.

LadyTristan 01:45, October 28, 2011 (UTC)

disruptive behaviour[edit source]

Hello, I have asked User:Rooneyo14 several times not to do massively consecutive edits in a row ([2] [3] etc.), which can be done in one step. The user is admittedly padding for those useless achievement/stats thing. It is highly disturbing as they are blocking and pushing legit or vandalism down, as recent changes list is limited to a certain amount of edits, it is impossible to monitor the wiki activity. Please try to reason with the user. Thanks a lot, — ochristi (t·c) 22:57, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the Welcome![edit source]

Ok Thank you for welcoming me to the Wiki, i will be editing from now on.

OK[edit source]

Ok i have decided to take what you say. - Rooneyo14

Question[edit source]

Hi MrThermomanPreacher I had a question about Merlin and Morgana I was recently reading there main pages in the relationship section for both of them it states that they shared a kiss once. What episode did that happen in out of curiousity.

From Rod12

Hi MrThermomanPreacher thank you for help in regards to my question its ok if you don't know the episode it appeared in but you did at least narrow down the search a little by saying it was either in Series 1 or Series 2. Out of curiousity even though you don't know the episode if you had to take a guess do you think the scene appeared in a full episode or do you think it might of been a deleted scene that might of appeared mainly on the DVD of the certain series.

From Rod12

Hi MrThermomanPreacher thank you again for help with my other question hopefully that will help me try and find the exact episode. Its funny I've seen all the of the episodes for the first three series and I own Series 1 and Series 2 but don't remember seeing that certain scene between the two of them. Hopefully I'll find what episode it was and I will let you know as well what episode it was. But thank you again for your help.

From Rod12

Hi. I'm an old fan of the series Merlin. And I would really like to support Merlin Wiki in good condition. Tell me please, can I give an administrator? I will follow the order on the Merlin Wiki.

Move request[edit source]

Hey, could you please move the article Merlin (character) to Merlin, over the existing redirect and help me move other pages, such as Gwaine (character) in the same fashion. I think it is best to have the in-universe article undisambiguated. Thanks--Skittles the hog - Talk 18:56, November 16, 2011 (UTC) (ip address) has been misusing the following pages

My name is Peter and I'm Wikia's Content Production Manager.

Was wondering if we could help you with a main page design/content update prior to season 4 next year (US).

Lemme know if you're interested, and you'd have approval of course!

Peter 03:05, November 21, 2011 (UTC)

Category deletion[edit source]

Hello again, I wanted to ask if you agreed with the deletion of categories such as Category:People who have been in love with Gwen and Category:Series 4 enemies. The former is just a pointless biographical addition and the latter is out of universe and far too generalised. If you happen to agree, could you please shoot them dead. I will then gladly remove them from the individual pages. Many thanks--Skittles the hog - Talk 17:28, November 21, 2011 (UTC)

Template:Series 4 enemies[edit source]

Hi, was deletion of Template:Series 4 enemies on purpose? — ochristi (t·c) 21:21, November 21, 2011 (UTC)

Please note my response to you on the merlin_wiki talk page. -- 08:19, November 22, 2011 (UTC)

Block[edit source]

Could you please give User:Sky89 a temporary block for vandalising Template:Morgana - top repeatedly and without reason. If you don't understand the situation, please ask me. Thanks as always--Skittles the hog - Talk 17:50, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

Morgause's page[edit source]

Someone keeps on ruining Morgauses page, like changing its display picture and ignoring comments. I was wondering if you could restrict the page to users only. It's getting annoying that I have to get on everyday to edit Morgause.

Thank you :)

Thank You Its my Pleasure I am 39 years old and a girl of course can you not make the edits i made not go away. I SAY PLEASE!

Thank You Its my Pleasure I am 39 years old and a girl of course can you not make the edits i made not go away. I SAY PLEASE! And yes ill be on it everyday ill look always on Morgause's Page.

Hi, could you move Valiant (character) to Valiant, I had concerns, but only you can do it, see Forum:Ambiguous lemma. Thanks. :) — ochristi (t·c) 23:15, November 29, 2011 (UTC)

Syfy Webring[edit source]

Hey there, {C}My name is Kate and I'm a staff member at Wikia. I'm a fan of Merlin and the wiki looks fantastic! Since we have so many popular and amazing Syfy wikis on Wikia, we made a Syfy webring that links to all of our Syfy wikis.

Here's what it looks like and we thought we could put it on the mainpage of the wikis listed as a way of "affiliating" with the other ones. Let me know what you think and I'd be happy to put it up!

{C}hi MrThermomanPreacher i need help of editing i need to edit lots of things and is important to me can u help please

By = Kellyanne

Hi! Do you know who exactly is in charge of the front page of this wiki and why does it barely change? It seems like someone is dozing off, I think this wiki has a major lack of maintenance.

I've edited the pages for Vivenne and Ygraine to remove the sister relationship and all related assumptions, but someone else has gone back and restored the pages to they way they were before my edits, so the sister relationship is again on those pages. There has been no indication in the show that they are related, so could you put a notice out warning people to stop assuming that Vivenne and Ygraine are siblings? This is getting very annoying.

Thank you.

I must support this statement since there is absolutely no source to this fact, and all references to Vivienne being the sister of Tristan, Ygraine and Agravaine should be removed. But if we're going to remove them, we need to do it ourselves too. And it is good that most references are removed but we're not quite there. Gwaine-looks-like-cenred 10:43, December 15, 2011 (UTC)

Other admins?[edit source]

I was wondering if there were any other admins of this wikia other than yourself, because you are the only admin I ever hear of much. Thankyou, Gwaine-looks-like-cenred 10:55, December 15, 2011 (UTC)

Consistent reverting[edit source]

Not sure if this is the place to go or if it's sufficiently important, but I've been having an issue with User:Tns31091 / since they continue to add in an irritating edit to the opening section of Arthur Pendragon's page which includes a reference to future events and is obviously skewed in favour of a certain point of view. Additionally, they have taken to writing pretty defamatory and insulting comments on my talk page, including rampant accusations of racism among other things. Wondering what to do about the situation.

Thanks. - Captain Cai 19:52, December 16, 2011 (UTC)



New Edit

Arthur is in love with Guinevere, even though they are currently not together. This is my edit, it is the truth and I want it kept that way since Captain Cai changed my original post!Tns31091 22:15, December 16, 2011 (UTC)


There are so many things on this wiki that are not true or have not been confirmed. I was extremely upset that you just took someone's side and not confront me about it. I have the right to write whatever I want, this is a wiki, it is not an encyclopedia. It was rude and ignorant and I would like an apology. Tns31091 23:30, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

FYI encyclopedias are scholary text, wikis are just something created by fans, most important is true, but it is not credible. BTW Where is my apology? FYITns31091 23:36, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

"Please stop reverting edits on the Arthur Pendragon page and being rude". You made a bias assumption, you were rude and I want an apology!Tns31091 23:45, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

Well, I guess the old saying goes: "birds of the same feather, flock together"Tns31091 23:54, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

enlighten yourself and find out! I'm finishedTns31091 00:00, December 17, 2011 (UTC)

Removal of HTML comment tags[edit source]

I'm not sure how prevalent this is in the wiki, but I find that the HTML comment tags are being used unnecessarily. For example, in the Guinevere page (among other problems, including the affiliations and enemies being deleted), the attributes in the infobox use the HTML comment tags where none is needed, where a simple break tag (or maybe even without a break tag, not sure if it will render correctly) will work. Is this common throughout the wiki, and, if so, is there some way to mass-remove them? Saiarcot895 02:57, December 17, 2011 (UTC)

Which photo to use?[edit source]

On the Guinevere page, which photo should be used for the main picture: File:Gwen_4.jpeg or the original File:Guinevere.jpg? My opinion is that the original one be in place while the newly added one be moved to Personalities. Saiarcot895 03:00, December 17, 2011 (UTC)

Spells[edit source]

Thanks a lot for adding some spells from "The Sword in the Stone". I usually find them on this website: http://notabenoid.com/search/?search_q=merlin but this time there weren't a couple of spells (the one Merlin used to make Arthur lose his will and the one Morgana used to blast away the fugitives). While I see you've found the first one, the other one is missing. Where have you found the spells? Could you tell me the site? I'm also missing a spell from S4Ep05 and one from S4Ep08. Thanks!

Knowing People[edit source]

Hi I am gaius-looks-like-ferryman and i want to know some people around me if u do leave a message on my talk page and after i definitly will get to u shortley. THanks!!!

Thank you[edit source]

Thanks for doing what you could! As for hiring more moderators/admins, I'm completely interested! I have no "résumé" to give you, only a guarantee that I've spent many months anonymously editing wikis before I made this account, I edit a few websites, I've been the admin of forums (smaller ones with hundreds of users), I've run blogs, and well, I've seen how it all works. I have good knowledge of how "trolling" works- and I for some reason enjoy deleting and banning people (with GOOD reason of course), I have high standards of English, I love discussion, I'm on literally every few hours when I'm home, either from my iPhone, iPad or Computer, and what can I say, when I'm on the Internet I have the Merlin wiki open in a tab. In addition, I'm a passionate Merlin fan. I'm crazy over the show.role,

Just a head's up, as finding more admins might not be easy, I've seen in some discussion Gwainered for example said being an admin would negatively affect his wiki experience and bring the fun out.

Thanks for reading. (I do it all for the love :)

Dryuuu 00:27, January 8, 2012 (UTC)Dryuuu

And I can confirm this to be true, since I've have chatted to this user for the past few days Gwaine-looks-like-cenred 10:07, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Can you delete this?[edit source]

Can you delete this duplicate photo, sice there is two of them, http://merlin.wikia.com/wiki/File:Mordred_Emo_Art.png.

And also, I have considered the BEAURCRAT role, but I'm not very interested, but I'd like to become an admin when the show ends, and there is nothing to do but remove vandals. Gwaine-looks-like-cenred 09:22, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Advice[edit source]

Could I please have some advise Mr Admin Sir?

Admin role[edit source]

About the SOPA thing, you're welcome, Gwainered should share the thanks as well. If it were possible I would have censored the logo as well. Have you given any consideration to promoting more users recently? I haven't heard more from you back on that. Given the amount of Wikis you're admin on, a definite attack on this Wiki, one worse than the recent attack from UthersBackside, would usually go unnoticed at the time. Thanks. 00:48, January 21, 2012 (UTC)Dryuuu


I was wondering how you put a link to your page on someones talk page. Every time I trie to it dose this Forestfire3.


New chat feature[edit source]

The new icon and menu seen in the top right corner of the Wikia home page would be a great addition for this Wiki, especially as we have some users who are here only for discussion. Only an admin can add this, so please can you add it, it'd be super useful. This place has frequent blog posts and discussions, and this feature is something I've always craved for this Wiki. So please, let us have it.

Hey there, you told me to leave a message so I did, I don't really know what to say though ahah.

I actually really love Merlin but I can't really be bothered to make a page on it. I do know loads about it that I remember and everything but when I come to making a page that no one has bothered to make themself, everything I know just kind of dissapears and I can't remember anything. It's quite annoying actually.

So anyways, I'll ask you if I need any help on anything, was nice talking to you c:

Uploading multiple pics at once[edit source]

I was just wondering if it is possible for you to change it so you can upload multiple pictures at once. It wastes bandwidth and time if you only upload one picture. But if it isn't possible, could you tell me who I can ask to make it possible. Ḡwẵine Ḹٍٍkƨ Ĺiĸe Ͼềлȑềd 01:40, February 11, 2012 (UTC)

'You will find over due time this Wiki will blossom! Thank you!! As for Gwaine, if you look on his profile, he has actually thought about admin. I've also persuaded him via email. We are friends. 'He won't find it so pressuring now if there are two others around.

You will find some changes over the next few weeks for the better. Thanks again. Dryuuu 13:35, February 11, 2012 (UTC)Dryuuu
