  • Post,
    I just recently read many of Robin Hobb's books and am interested in assisting with this wiki.
    The first thing I want to look into doing is creating a Character Infobox Template and then begin adding it to some of the character pages.
    I was hoping to get your input on what you thought of this ideal.

    I've only just started thinking it through but the Info Boxes would contain information such as the following:
    Character
    Aliases
    Titles
    Gender
    Species
    Complexion
    Hair Color
    Eye Color
    Abilities
    Relationships
    Family
    Romantic
    Wit-Bond
    Skill Coterie
    Novels and Stories
    Appeared in

    What do you think about those items making it onto the Infobox? Are there any you can think of adding?
    Thank you,

    • Hi SecondAlarm,

      I think the infoboxes are a great idea, thanks for making them. The only extra things I can think of to add would be 'occupation', and 'location' or 'residence', but the one's you've added look pretty good so far.

      There's not much editing traffic on the wiki (and most of the recent stuff is anonymous comments/fixing typos), so feel free to make as many changes to stuff as you want. And let me know if you need any admin tasks done, and try I'll get onto them quickly.

      All the best!

    • Occupation and Residence seem like good additions to me, I'll see to it.

      Thank you,

    • OK, I've setup the Character Infobox on a few articles and I've also created an updated Book Infobox and added it to all the book articles.
      I plan on moving on to many of the other characters in the next few days, but before I do I wanted to recommend some changes to the naming of the character articles.
      A lot of the Character Articles are named including the Character's Title at the time of the article's creation. For example, the Prince Dutiful Farseer article isn't necessarily correct because in the latest books he is King Dutiful. I would recommend renaming the article to Dutiful Farseer.
      Would it be alright with you if I went through and renamed these articles as I add the Infoboxes or would you prefer I create discussion on each one and then wait for responses (or a certain amount of time) before I move forward with renaming it?

  • Hi, are you aware there already is a wide wiki about Robin's work, which the author herself admits of using sometimes...

  • RotE Logo CROP

    "Realm of the Elderlings" Wiki Logo, by Swifthorse

    Hey there! 

    I just finished the logo and have it attached here. Let me know if you having any sizing issues on your computer. I can resize it if necessary. :)

    Best,

    Swift

    • Thanks heaps! I've changed it now and it looks awesome! I also changed the background to something a bit lighter than the red, but if you have other colour suggestions I'm happy to talk about them. :)

      I'm not sure how to change the favicon to an .ico, I've only ever used online programmes to make (really terrible) ones. I might have some time over the weekend to look into it though.

      Don't worry about the long response time, things move pretty slowly around here!

    • No problem! Thank you for the complement! Also, I like the background a lot. I wish that there was something that we could use that would fit the theme but since these are books we have very limited artwork to work from. Haha.

  • H ey there! 

    I was wondering, is there anyone or anything that you would prefer to be included in a logo? I was planning on working on a logo over the next week and was interested in incorporating one of the dragons but I wasn't sure which.

    Best Wishes!

    • Hey :)

      Any of the dragons would be great! The current logo is just from a screenshot of one of the books with some text over it (I'm not very good at designing things), so I'm sure you can come up with something better. Having the words 'Realm of the Elderings Wiki' or 'Robin Hobb's Realm of the Elderlings Wiki' on it would be good too.

      Do you know anything about favicons too?

      If you have any ideas you want to throw around, I'm happy to discuss.

    • Hey there!

      I'll have "Realm of the Elderlings" and Heeby and Rapskal from the Blood of Dragons cover. I'm sort of handy with art programs so I hope I won't run into too much trouble. :P

      I'm not too sure about favicons but my sister, whose profession is in computers/html, should know and should be able to help me figure it all out.

      I'll keep you updated!

  • Hello!

    Wikia Contributor 68.206.116.16 here. Sorry if my formatting is exceptionally poor, at least my information is good?

    • Okay, I'll keep dividing it up. See Paragon for a rough example of what I was trying.

      I'm not sure if we do have an Elderling category but it can hardly be difficult to make and enforce one as I have a list of them made on the page already!

      Well, I hope you're going to do something enjoyable with your vacation time. I'll keep plodding along on fleshing things out. I read in sort of a strange order Liveships -> Rain Wild Chronicles -> Farseer -> Tawny Man so things came in a bit odd but I'll try to keep patching things up.

    • Hi, How's it going? I managed to get through the first 3 Rain Wild books on my holiday, now I'm part way through Blood of Dragons. Once I'm done with that I think I might pick a book at random and go through slowly with editing the wiki, adding in pages for secondary characters and the information that is at the start of each paragraph. It means we will get a lot of detail about more minor things, but I think it's good to have that info around.
