Wiki Update & Challenge


Ah the wiki!

So update on the Wiki.   All bios that have an updated image (thank you taibhrigh!) the record has been updated to the new format.  

At the moment we’re about half way through updating the wiki! Considering the gap due to … well everything these past couple of years … we’re doing pretty good.

So challenge to everyone.   A lot of stories have been written since we’ve done the updates.  So the challenge, for characters that have had the image and format updated, let us know if the bio itself needs to be updated.  Did something not get edited with the new changes, or some important information was revealed and should be included.   We’re not talking every last detail from stories, but enough to showcase what’s been happening.

Again this is ONLY for bios with new images and format.

The rest will be updated as we go.

Leave a comment on the bio itself to let us know.

On a second note:  Dear Sylum Author’s if you need to update bios for characters you’re working with let me know and I’ll get those updated for you.

Major Sylum Update: Oh Hell No List (Must Read)


This is a Major Announcement!


We’ve had to do some major casting changes for three characters within Sylum, due because two actors ended up on our Oh Hell No List!   Ironically, this list was recently brought up, when we had a Casting Call to get some ideas for new Sylum Characters.  There were some questions and concerns about who was on, or what exactly the Oh Hell No List was, and how it impacted Sylum.

The Oh Hell No List is basically actors/actresses that stand against everything Sylum represents.  They are homophobic, racists, sexist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic … the list goes on.   Basically, those actors/actresses that have crossed that line into areas that we can’t condone.   We actually have a list of actors/actresses that we will never use, and there are reasons why some characters were either killed off or re-cast – Jim Phelps (aka Lord Croft) and Hercules come to mind.   At the same time, we have a small list of actors/actress we keep an eye on, basically those who have a bad habit of not quite wording statements right or every once in a while doing something stupid.   We make sure the stupid doesn’t go full stupid.

Recently we’ve had two actors that have not just crossed the line, but high dived right past it.  And well, for one in particular, went straight to crazy land.

So we’ve spent the past few weeks cursing their name, doing major re-casting research, looking for actors that weren’t RDJ, JDM, Russell Crowe or Michael Fassbender (yes, when we started the research those were the top names that popped up – shocking!), and then making sure storyline could continue without too many major re-writes!

Sadly, the first character that got re-cast was someone with major influence within Sylum storyline – one we couldn’t kill off (oh we contemplated it, we were that pissed off at the situation).   So with sadness we have to announce that we’ve re-cast John Rhys.

Yep you read that right.   Mr. Rhys – the Man in the Suit, Nico’s Meridia, Assassin, Spy and Sith.

Why?  Well when we said one of the actors high dived off the cliff, dove straight past the line and right into crazy land – this was the one.   We actually got wind of behavior that was making us start to cringe, so at first we nixed any future characters from that actor, and deleted the name from the wiki.   Then three weeks ago, there was no way we could keep the actor in Sylum.  His rhetoric stood against everything Sylum stands for, and despite John Rhys being a major character we had to stand by our principles and remove the actor from Sylum.

The only reason we’re not having a beautiful storyline of Nico going utterly batshit because someone took out his sister and daughter, is because we have way too much storyline where those two are needed.  We didn’t want to piss off the Machine, and well we couldn’t do that to Harold.

So re-casting was our only option.   When we typed in ‘tall dark brooding actors’ the first two that popped up were JDM and Fassbender, but both were nixed instantly as I wasn’t even going to try to deal with those family lines connecting with Rhys & Finch.

But we found someone!

I’ll admit it wasn’t someone I would’ve guessed to play the role, but amazingly he fits the character well, and though they have other characters in the Sylum Universe it works.

So who is the new Mr. Rhys?

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

Search Feature: Sylum Wiki Blog

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: 

Tallikut Clan:

Barry Frost

Victor Henricksen – Tuckercat your timestamp just became the 4th story in the Carry On My Wayward Son Series … so it may take longer to get written than anticipated.  At the moment Pirates are in the way 🙂

Mod Kin Clan:

Angela Bennett

Sanguen Vitae Clan (India):

Jayadeep Mir

Medjai Clan:
