Hi, have you received Encredechine's message about a potential restructuring of this wiki? We would very much like to work with you proactively here: it's my understanding that the current branding of the place hurts its SEO a significant amount; people tend to look up wikis based on the name of the game they're playing, not the developers. So this change would probably help to increase activity and discoverability in general a certain amount.
Please let me know what you think! You don't have to be super involved with the restructuring, we should be able to handle most of it, but we'd just like your support beforehand. Thanks. :)
Okay, so, to be honest, if you want to bisect the parts of the DONTNOD Wiki that everything to do with Life is Strange and Vampyr because the latter wikis either don't exist or the other wiki doesn't have the quality of information I do here, you can.
But, you have to find someone who's willing to run the Remember Me Wiki, because I'm not interested anymore. I'm tired of asking for help and I shouldn't have to network on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to get it.
I'll give it a month or two before I officially remove myself from the Wiki if ya'll don't do it first.
Restructuring the wiki to focus on Remember Me might actually help with that. Users interested in the game are more likely to find the wiki once it has a new name and precise focus, and more visitors to the wiki means more potential future contributors.
If you're just not up for all the work at the moment that's necessary to run a wiki, that's absolutely understandable, of course. We won't remove you, and you can be as much or as little involved as you'd like.
Dear Lily Ford,
I come to you to discuss with you how we could approach a restructuring of Fandom and Gamepedia Wikis. You are for sure aware of the fact that the two platforms are now working together and so we have quite some kerfuffle with the duplicate content. Our goal at the moment is to get communities together and to look for opportunities to archive certain wikis and to also migrate communities if possible. Our Gamepedia LiS Wiki already moved successfully to Life is Strange Wiki on Fandom and there is Vampyr featured on Gamepedia (plus a German Wiki on the Fandom side), so the question is, how are your thoughts about a possible rebranding of the Dontnod Entertainment Wiki into "Remember me Wiki" and moving LiS and Vampyr content to their respective Wikis? I know this probably sounds quite "extreme", but with three wikis, each one dedicated exclusively to one game, the players/editors can focus on building the best resource for each, rather than multiple wikis competing on the same topic. Players are also more likely to search for "Remember Me Wiki" when they are looking for game information than "DONTNOD Wiki", meaning all three wikis would likely benefit from this re-focusing. Thank you and best regards! Caroline aka Encredechine
You can update the articles with as much accurate information as possible, just remember to make sure it's written in keeping with the Manuel of Style (see: Policies) and to place or not remove the particular spoiler notice created for each game represented on the Wiki.
Please don't forget to add citations to the content that you add to the articles.
My name is LaVey and I'm an administrator at the Castlevania Wiki. I'm aware that you asked one of our other admins about affiliating our wikis together earlier this year. I apologize for the late reply, but your post completely flew under my radar and it was by mere causality that I came across it.
If you're still interested, you can contact me directly on our Discord server, where we'll be able to discuss this matter more openly.
Hello! Will this wiki be covering Twin Mirror? I had some assets (just a handful of screenshots and a cover image) for the game and placed them on a wiki someone started and then abandoned. I can bring them here if you want them (or you can grab them from here.
Do you think it prudent to create a separate wiki for Vampyr, since it's an RPG it's going to be fairly large and I think it deserves its own.
Also, a lot of the Vampyr articles need cleaning up, and since I've been doing a lot of that myself in the past few weeks, I'd appreciate having a conversation with you about improving the Vampyr wiki (if not create a separate one entirely). I appreciate your help, but I am getting a little ticked off by you deleting some info/renaming pages that I've worked to improve because no one else has. I'm sure we can work together for mutual benefit here.
Thus far, the only article I deleted that you created was London. I stated before, "London" does not need an article any more than "France" (the location of Neo-Paris in Remember Me) needs an article as it is simply the location of several crucial places in game. The Wikipedia link suffices in this case.
The production of the game literally advertise and spell Vampyr as VAMPYR on multiple occasions. As far the spelling of the title goes, the caps-locking is for article and linking purposes only as Vampyr can be spelled standard within the article itself.
The revert on the Shadow Jump article was purely because you provided no citation on the information provided in the article that contradicted information that was cited in the last edit I made to it. I realize the E3 2017 video shows that the Shadow Jump is called Spring, but the tweet that was posted on the official account after the event rather contradicts the information in the video.
You cannot participate on the improvement or editing of a wiki and get mad at every or any thing that gets deleted or changed. That's a surefire way of burning yourself out and creating unnecessary antagonism where there needs to be none.
Hello there, so I was wondering how one (i.e. myself) might become an admin? I just think it would be convienient since I've been working on the Vampyr section of the wiki, and I plan to update it as much as I can when it comes out in a few days. I did read the page on the wiki about requesting adminship, but I'm a little uncertain if I nominate myself, or if someone else has to first? Thanks very much :)
Usually, if there were other people here, the typical thing to do would be to have those people vote on whether or not the user would be good in the role as an admin, or they would vote in the negative.
But considering this place a veritable ghost town outside of the occasional passerbyer and myself, I don't think you were in the wrong for using the application route. I had actually went to check the application article when you reverted the changes.
That said, a majority of the edits you've made to the VAMPYR articles have been solid and constructive. I don't think you'd be bad as a co-admin for the wiki in the least. I'd certainly welcome the help.
My only major complaint would be that the edits you make don't follow the article format established for all articles on the Remember Me Wiki, and most (from what I've browsed thus far) are lacking in citations.
Several character articles created for instance don't follow the Manual of Style and you even removed the formatting of article stubs that did. All character articles should make no reference to the characters position in the narrative or gameplay (playable, protagonist, etc.) and simply stick with briefly summarizing their story before elaborating on story beats in the Biography and Characteristics sections of the articles.
Have you familiarized yourself with the guidelines and policies of the Remember Me Wiki as well?
I have glanced over the Manual of Style, and admittedly I've not been good at following it since I'm used to following the editing guideline of other wikis such as the Horizon Zero Dawn and Final Fantasy wikis. I think it might be prudent if I created a separate wiki for Vampyr (as far as I can see there isn't one except on this wiki) much like how Life is Strange has its own separate wiki, just for the sake of having its own space.
And this isn't because I want to be in total control of something, I just think that it wouldn't be so cluttered and could follow the example of more recent wikis. I'm not trying to antagonise anyone, but if you want me to back off I will do so freely.
Wiki's covering one or more topics like the Capcom or Final Fantasy Wiki's are hardly cluttered. That said, from the sounds of if you're already out the door on account of that and a few guideline adherences and the rearrangement or relocation of information.
That was also a problem for every one who migrated to the Life Is Strange Wiki (and they copy/pasted content from here in the process).
No offense, but, whether you mean it or not, this does come off like someone frustrated about the lack of control they effectively don't have, especially after the last message you made while I was in the process of responding to this message.
Someone's already made Vampyr Wiki and also copied the information from this wiki and pasted it there (that's the frustrating thing about running a wiki for a not-so-popular french dev, I guess). But, at the very least, they were polite enough to use a header notice that informed people that the information was copy/pasted from the site I'm managing.
That said, best of luck elsewhere if you're leaving and thanks for contributing to the wiki. It's appreciated.
It's been a minute since I've been in entrenched in the LIS fandom, but, I don't really recall creating a "Life Is Strange References" article, let alone deleting an article named that if someone else did. For a moment I thought you were talking about the Choice and Consequence article, which to the best of my knowledge, is still present on the Wiki.
If you're talking about the "References to other Media", they've always been in the episode articles relevant to them. I never saw the point in creating a singular article like "List of Popular References in Life Is Strange" like I ended up doing with the Alan Wake page on the Quantum Break Wiki, esp. when everything was occurring realtime and was highly episode specific.
Btw really late now but did Toby ever contacted you regarding this? I tried contacting him later but he didn't answer.
No, one involved with DONTNOD Entertainment's social media sites ever contacted me about that. The Remember Me Wiki nor the lifeisstrangegame tumblr is never mentioned or referenced in the post they made late 2016, which pretty much tells me what my relevance to the LIS fandom is as a contributor that started out working on LIS content (to the point of remodeling my Remember Me Wiki to a DONTNOD Wiki) before the game gained any sort of popularity, pardon my bitterness.
Thanks, I found them. I though there was one article for some reason.
It is understandable that you are a bit bitter about being barely recognized for your efforts. He at least indirectly did in that post. I will definitely mention you again if they repeat the event again.
I'm a little annoyed too nothing came out of it. You (Lily) deserves so much credit for the wiki and recognition.
Honestly, I don't expect much of anything from the LIS fandom these days. I've repeatedly asked for help before the great bulk of the users here migrated to the LIS wiki, and everyone from lifeistrangefans.com to the general Wikia community have been content to ignore me. Esp. after I reported on the LIS Wiki's plagiarism of the Remember Me Wiki, something from which they continue to benefit from.
I wasn't there in the beginning and I don't have any justification to critic you. But here is just my opinion anyways that you might find interesting.
I think one of the issues might be the fans of Life is Strange and Remember Me barely overlap. Most LiS fans seems to be very focus/engaged with it and the strong differences in terms of genre etc don't really help. The way wikia handles wikis as places for one specific fan group doesn't help here either. I think that handicapped the popularity of LiS content too.
Another issue might be might taking it too seriously in terms of rules and beginning quality. Seeing it more as a Wikipedia for games and less as a fan resource, which might lead to less contributors.
Lastly there are people like us here that clearly appreciate the work you have done, I hope I let you know that. It's also cool to see that there are some people who continue to work on the Remember Me articles. Perhaps when Vampyr comes out, more contributors will come with it.
