  • Hey, I did a basic page for one of the weapons used in the series. It's far from finished but I wanted to give you a basic idea of what I intended and see what you think.

    • Glad to see you had a good time, and if anything at all use this opportunity to analyze the changes I made:

      http://the-strain.wikia.com/wiki/Glock_17?action=edit (then select the "Source tab")

      In time, you could be at the same level , if not better, that I am at. At a certain point, you won't need me anymore. 

      The method I brought to your attention, is exactly how I learned.

      I do not know how other administrators work, I let the users do the work, and I provide the appropriate guidance as needed

      Also, I am happy to see that the tenor of our interactions, are not as combative as they once were

      Regards

    • I forgot to tell you:

      I do not know how familar you are with the Fandom ( wikia -- old name) interface.

      To edit a page, therer is a drop-down menu right next to the edit radio button. It is a downward pointing arrow -- it points up when you scroll through the options. Select the "Classical Editor".

      I prefer that over the new one anyway.

  • I was just wondering if I could add a bit of extra information to the weaknesses section of the page about the Strigoi. I was watching clips from Season 3 of The Strain and I noticed during a fight between the Ancients, Quinlan and the Master's Strigoi, and I noticed the the Ancient were able to kill the Strigoi by slashing them with their talons and snapping their necks; and throughout the series in general, the Ancients crush the skulls of their victims, to prevent the transformation into Strigoi. I wanted to add this information but I wanted to check with you first; especially after the last time I tried to edit that section.

  • Hi, just to let you know, I have created tv show versions of certain pages because the show deviates a bit from the books and so the lore is not the same i.e tv show vampires do not lose their ears. I think pretty much most pages on this wiki may need to be divided between book and tv show version as I think certain character arcs didn't follow the same paths as the book etc. I remember getting confused by reading some information as it was from the book and not the show, (haven't read the books)

    • Thank you for contacting me, it seems that the tv show page and the "original page" look the same other than the tv parts, You could have created a section called "television" and explained why it differed.

      PS: I just thought of something, if you have some "wiki programming skill", why don't you create a tabbed version of the page, separate tv from book. I would fully support that.

      [Another] PS: I added some videos recently, check out the therapy, baby factory, and finale ones, you may find it interesting, especially the therapy one.

    • It is the same currently because as I have explained in some of the summaries, that someone who knows the books will need to sort out the page and seperate book info from tv show info. I have never read the books and I need to rewatch the tv show again before I can even begin to sort the information out.

      Sections wouldn't necessarily work as depending on how much more information from book or tv show can be added, the page could end up being stretched and too long.

      Tab thing is a good idea but I am not savvy with computer codes, I have tried tabbing before and the results have been mixed.

      What I can do is rewatch the show when I got time and make sure the tv show pages are not duplicates of the original, while someone who knows the books can make sure the originals don't have tv show information.

      When I have got tabs to work, they could not be renamed which caused issues with keeping things orderly and properly categorized. I will see about trying to find working ones, you will probably need to create a template page to house the codes necessary for proper tab codes.If I can get them to work properly, we can merge the infomation but keep them tidy with tabs.

    • We had a coder last year, but he moved on to other projects, just leave me an instruction list and I will do my best to carry them out.

  • So as the the number 1 user on this wiki, what did you think about the Strain series finale !!!

      Loading editor
    • As I said, it was an unexpected twist, the father and son dying to together, I thought fet was going to die for the cause.

      It also seem like Quinlan did defeat the master by tearing off a portion of the neck.

      I'm guessing fan's demanding an "good" ending and cuse or del toro accomodated  them

  • Hi Nemo,

    Have you thought about asking Wikia for a spotlight (spotlights are the links to wikis at the bottom of each page) to draw attention to the wiki now that S4 is approaching?

    There are some technical requirements that need to be met before they'll do that, but they're not that arduous and are all good ideas anyway.
