  • Heya! It's been a while. I'm here to bring you more news from Fandom, a big one - a new Analytics Admin Dashboard feature has just been introduced, giving admins access to interesting wiki data. You can now understand better how the wiki is doing and may plan certain things/make decisions based on what you can see there.

    Visit Special:Analytics to check it out!

    The page Help:Analytics dashboard was also made available if you have any questions about the feature. But please ask me if you have any other questions - I’m in direct contact with staff and would be able to find out from them.

    Feel free to spread the word with the other admins. I hope this is useful! (Some of the data can be surprising, right now "Quinn" seems to be more searched than "Dexter" :P)

    • Heya! I'm passing by to share one more blog (just trying to making sure these don't go unseen, particularly when they're relevant to editors like yourself.)

      This one is about Fandom's projects for Editor Rewards. You can find all the information in the blog, so not much to add on my part - feel free to check it if you wish, and comment if you have any questions/feedback.

      Cheers!

    • Got another bit of update: Fandom just launched their official Discord server and lots of editors are joining to chat! In this blog post you can find more information, as well as a server invite link. Lots of exciting things happening! :D

  • Good afternoon!

    I know the Episode 301: Our Father credits list them as "Kid #1", etc. but the "#" has a special meaning in wikis. It links to a section of the page like this Episode 301: Our Father#Gallery. So "Kid #1" will try to link to section "1" of the page "Kid". I would suggest calling the page "Kid number 1" or "Kid No. 1" or whatever else you think (I have no preference) but using the pipe to make it display like the credits show: [[Kid number 1|Kid #1]]

    I hope I've explained sufficiently, but I can elaborate more if necessary.  :)

    • I've found it hard to find pics of some actors too. I've spent hours watching unfamiliar shows to try and spot actors to get a different pic for a wiki page. lol

    • I understand completely. You'd think actors would want their pics out there. lol

  • Hi, we can link to categories without just adding pages to that category by adding a colon before the word "Category" like this:

    [[:Category:Indexter|Indexter]]

    which results in this:

    Indexter

  • Do we need separate pages for Teenage Dexter and Young Dexter? I'm not necessarily opposed, I'm just asking.

    We already have a separate page for Dexter Morgan/Early Life.

    • I was thinking about the characters, but maybe I'm too ambitious.

    • I tend to think it's better to discuss different aspects of characters on a single page. I think it's easier to compare and contrast, plus readers may not know to look on a different page or that different pages even exist.

      What are some benefits to splitting them?

    • Fine, save work for me. Could I see you in chat for a different matter?

  • I saw your message in the chat, apologies I was writing up something in regard to the character Esenya. If you can I'll be in the chat again tomorrow after I get off work if you'd like to discuss it further.

    • I'll try to chat tonight. I should state that I won't be a part of working on The Method for two reasons. First, the show sucks, maybe that's why it's only one season. Second, I barely see any similarities to Dexter other than him being a killer. Have a good day!

    • Would you say it doesn’t have a place on the Wiki then? There’s probably other series with more in common than Method and having watched into it a bit...there is scarce a similarity that can be tied to Dexter. My honest opinion is that we should just remove it especially considering it has a place on the Main Page.

      If we could get Gnome on board...I think it best the series be removed from the site completely. I don’t really want to make a Wiki for it either..it’s a one off, nobody cares about it.

  • I know I kind of disappeared a little while back. I’ve finally recaught the Dexter bug and am rewatching the series with a new perspective considering how life has been the past year. I’d like to even get back to editing articles! Do you know of any in particular that need some work at the moment?

  • If she was born in Dec 79, she would have turned 33 in Dec 2012, so would have been 32 in Sep 2012, no?

  • I liked Cody at first...he was likable and innocent, but turn into a very annoying character...Astor was no prize either (running away and getting drunk...smoking grass)...this could be attributed to unresolved anger...against Paul, their father, a drug addict and abuser...their mother, for dying...their grandmother, Gail, a mean spirited creep...Dexter...

    Cody would have been more interesting if he had developed like he did in the books ("Cody had a dark passenger")...If there had been a ninth season he might have a serial killer or an arrogant bastard like Dokes...either way Dexter would have forced to kill him.
