Sylum Update: Wiki & Chat


A few quick updates!

Wiki Formatting: A while back (okay so it was a month ago, but feels longer) I brought up about the formatting for the post for the Wiki, whether to stick with the old style or implement the new one.  The votes favored the new format, and with much discussion, decided to go with the New Format.

This actually wasn’t an easy decision (as this is a lot of work) but the main factor was – we couldn’t trust the plugin to keep working, and if it failed we would be right back where we started.   Thank you for all the votes, it helped with the decision process.

So we’re back to putting in the new format.  As we do Sylum Inspiration’s you’ll see the changes, and we’re slowly working through the Clans – starting with the ones that have updated images.  As the tabs are working, we’ll update bios to the new formatting when we get updated images.

Global Movie Day: Still want to guess how many movies there are in Sylum – you have a chance.  Go Here and put in your best guess.

Discord:  Would you believe we’re actually tied on this … so if you haven’t voted Go Here, read the post and let us know what you think.

Sylum Wiki: To Tab or Not To Tab


The Wiki.

How I despise thee.

Some of you may recall a few months back I made an announcement that due to updates from wordpress, the tabs weren’t working on the theme we had.  We ended up changing themes, only to discover tabs worked on Pages not Posts.

Noticing that the plug in hadn’t been update in a while, we figured best to change the format of the posts, taking away the tabs.

Guess what’s working.

Come on guess!

Yep the tabs.

*sighs along with rolling my eyes*

So here’s the question we have for you.   Keep the new format?  Or go back to tabs?

New Format: James Malone

Tab Format: Timothy Quinn

Wiki Blog Update

When I went to do maintenance on the Wiki Blog, I noticed that search queries were not pulling up any findings!  Despite the fact we all know, there is enough Michael’s and Sam’s to pull up at least 5 bios!!

It took some time, but was able to locate the problem and fix it.

If you were searching for anything on the Blog the past few days, and didn’t find anything – this would be why.  Feel free to try your searches again.

If some of you don’t mind, could you test the search function to make sure it is actually working and reply to this post … that would be great!

Sylum Advent 2017: December 1st

***

This was a very large update!!  Hence we had to take the Wiki down for a week to prep everything for Advent.

So here’s the thing.  We’ve done some re-arranging, adjusting, deletions and additions.  Along with updating the Clan Pages, The Library, and Main Tables!

Some of this rearranging is due to changes that is going on within the stories, set up for future stories, protecting Sylum from actors/actress that ended up on the ‘oh hell no list’, and storylines that have been abandoned.

Just to give you a small indication of how big this update really was …

Deleted Characters: 24

Added Characters: 50

Moved Characters: 10

Let’s just say the only Clan that didn’t get touched in some way: Sila Kin Clan.

On top of the character updates we’ve also updated the main tables to show case the 10 Races … you might remember the post about it.  Tags have been added to characters that are related to these specific categories.

We have changed a few things around.  The Home Page is now a static page that introduces Sylum, and has a table with links to the Clans, Clan Positions, Organizations, Ten Races, and Enemies.

The bios will not be seen under the ‘Sticky Post’.

Please Note: As we’re on a shared server and we’ve officially started Advent … remember that lag time could happen, so be patient!

Wiki Update: New Look & New Characters

The Sylum Wiki Blog has a new look!! 

We’re always trying to find better ways to view, sort and find things you need to enjoy the Sylum Universe.  The Wiki basically got a simple facelift, making it slightly easier to view, the set up is still the same.

NOTE: At this moment Wiki Index Page is broken, the program that runs the index hasn’t been updated to the latest wordpress.  When it’s up and running again we’ll make another announcement.  In the many time – use the SEARCH field to search for characters … we’re building an extensive index list in the background that will make things easier to find.

We’ve recently removed characters: A few were do to adjustments in their storyline, and others do to the actor playing the role ended up on the ‘oh hell no list’, pulling other characters associated to their bios with them.  We’ve also changed the image of at least one character for the same reason.

Reminder: The ‘oh hell no list’ is actors/actress that stood against the basic principles we showcase, and would probably took offense to all things Sylum, and we work hard to keep Sylum a safe place, plus lets not anger the ‘powers to be’.

We’ve also added five new characters over the past few months, though these don’t directly replace the ones removed they do added more diversity to Sylum.

Characters Removed:

Tallikut Clan: 

Timothy Taylor
Jill Taylor
Brian Kenny
Justin Taylor

Image Changed:

Dirk Pitt

Bios Removed Pending Changes:

Catherine Willows
Clavo Cruz
Ramon Cruz
Sean Boswell
Ellis Cochrane

Characters Added:

Jayadeep Mir

Medjai Clan:

Update: Old Sylum Wiki

b92e7a03d73853f5da9711350290a3ad

The Old Sylum Wiki has died.  It’s deader than dead at this moment.

*salutes a fallen brother*

The only reason we’ve kept it up these past months, is a place holder until the new one was finished.  This weekend we’ll be taking the old one offline and lay it to rest properly.  It did a good job when we needed it, and it deserves a good rest.

The new Sylum Wiki Blog will be released to the masses during the first part of Advent.

Lets take a moment of silence to mourn the passing of the Old Wiki.

*lifts glass*

It served us well, may it rest in cyber peace.

 

Sylum Inspriation: Sylum Wiki Blog

wikiwars-835x1024

 

Sylum Wiki Blog

Is officials up to date.  Well up to date as it can be.  There’s always going to be edits, additions, and moving things around.

But it’s done.   It will be revealed during Advent!  So must be patient for a while more!  But believe me it will be worth it.

Totally Bios: 1002 (Because someone had to add a new guy just after I declared it’s officials done … pointedly looks at that someone)

Total Clans: 19

Total Enemies: 81 (Alive and Dusted)

Total Mutants: 10

Total Aliens: 4

Total Meridii: 31

*collapses in a heap*

Iz so done.

Wanders off to add the 1002 bio ….

Sylum Characters: Last Chance

messy-desk-300x239

As we’re dwindling down to the last bios for the new improved wiki … lets not even discuss the amount of work this has been or the time it has consumed!!

I put out the call a few weeks ago and here is your last chance.

We’re taking suggestions for characters … before you hit the keyboard – we’re already looking at Nick Grimm as many many many many did I mention many of you asked/commented about him.

Please Read: Sylum Characters – before suggesting anyone just to make sure you’re not asking for characters that well not be considered.

One last thing:  Do not just give us a name from a show.  That doesn’t help.  If your serious about a character – give us information along with the name. The more information the better chances.

If do not want to reply to this post – you can send your idea to sylumclan@yahoo.com  – please label email: Sylum Character.
