So, a while back, I proposed an idea to Selena about maybe putting a DiscordIntegrator on the wiki. I'm sure you know what it is but if you don't, it's basically a little widget on the side of the site that will enable people from this wiki to join an already established (and actually one of the best I've seen) Choices chat server. I think it would be quite a nice addition to the wiki as it will help others connect to another Choices community and it will also bring us editors and readers alike. If you want to see what it would like on an actual wiki, then take a look at this link.
I created that one (although it took a few days), I would need your help with it but it can be done. I spoked to Selena about again yesterday and she okayed it but told me to ask you so you can have the final say.
Hi, I recall you saying a while back that you were the one getting the awesome copies of the covers from the game and that this was an ongoing project of yours. My game goes through phases where I get the chance to screenshot the ingame covers and I have two of them at the moment (maybe more, I'd have to look through my files). One of those is for High School Story, Book 2 and the other is for The Freshman: Love Bites. I realized after I got the one for Love Bites that you already have it, but that my screenshot includes more of the picture. It's wider somehow. I think maybe different versions of the game might have different specs and thus the covers are different.
Anyway, I was wondering if you would like me to upload the one for High School Story, Book 2 and what your thoughts are on the one for The Freshman: Love Bites as far as the wider or thinner covers. If you want the wider one I will upload it and see if I can get any of the others that are thinner replaced over time. If you don't I will leave it alone and not worry about any that have the in game cover regardless of if they are wide or thin.
Sure. I've gotten a few more since then which I would be happy to share if you are interested in them. If not I won't worry about sharing them. I have reasons why I want them in addition to this site. For now though, here's the Love Bites one I mentioned. I seem to have misplaced the other one and I'll have to grab it out of another device later, but this is the one that is a comparison between it and what's already on the site, so that seems a good place to start.
Found it! Here's the High School Story, Book 2 one. I also uploaded the Endless Summer, Book 2 one, because I realized I could replace the one on my user page, which lead me to realize I can use all of these on my user page as I collect them. Since I already uploaded it, I'm including it on this, too.
In addition to these three I have nine more that I have ready to upload:
America's Most Eligible
Hero, Volume 1
Perfect Match, Book 1
Red Carpet Diaries, Book 1
Red Carpet Dairies, Book 2
Rules of Engagement, Book 2
The Royal Romance, Book 1
The Royal Romance, Book 2
Veil of Secrets
The ones for America's Most Eligible, Hero, Vol. 1, Red Carpet Diaries, Book 1, The Royal Romance, Book 2, and Veil of Secrets are very close to the one on site other than the absence of the Choices logo. The Red Carpet Diaries, Book 2 one is likewise very similar other than the absence of the Choices logo, but it is a little longer showing a little bit more of the cover. The Rules of Engagement, Book 2 one is a lot more detailed since the one we currently have is a thumbnail. The one for The Royal Romance, Book 1 is wider, though the additional detail is mostly wall.
I try to catch screen shots every time I play and will continue to do so until I have one for every book. If you don't want me to use them for the book pages, that's fine. I like the look of the screenshots better, but I look at my user page a lot more than the book pages (where I mostly read and reply to comments) or the top of the walkthrough pages (where I am already avoiding the spoiler tag I really don't like the look of). Just let me know where you stand and I will follow through by either posting them as I get them or leaving the images already on those pages alone.
I haven't heard from you on this yet, so I thought I would let you know that I got six more in the last two days.
High School Story, Book 1 - It's a bit wider than what we have and shows more of the school as well as showing that Brian is holding a football in the picture, something not visible in what's currently there.
Rules of Engagement, Book 1 - It's a bit wider than what we have and shows more of Leo and William including both of their missing arms and the rest of the hands that are holding something.
Rules of Engagement, Book 3 - In addition to not having the Choices logo, it also is longer and includes her full dress.
The Crown & The Flame, Book 1 - It's a bit wider than what we have and doesn't cut off Kenna or Dom's hands.
The Freshman, Book 4 - In addition to not having the Choices logo, it's longer and shows all of both James and Chris. This particular cover was the first one to set me on a quest to try and get the ingame covers from my iPad, because I didn't want the two guys cut off like that.
The Sophomore, Book 1 - In addition to not having the Choices logo, it is a little wider, showing more of the college in the background.
If you want to actually see examples of more of these before you make a decision I will be happy to post them here. If I get any more before I hear back from you I will let you know.
It's been a few more days and I have a few more covers that I've gotten from my game. Unfortunately after I got them, I realized that one of them was already on the site, identical to what I got. I also thought I had one that I didn't have.
Most Wanted, Book 1 - This one is identical to what's on the site, so obviously this one isn't needed.
The Royal Romance, Book 3 - Other than the lack of the Choices logo, this one is a little taller, showing more of her dress, and a little wider, showing more of the curtains.
The Sophomore: Hartfeld Horror Story - Other than the lack of the Choices logo, this one is a very little bit taller, showing maybe a few extra pixels of the fire at the bottom, nothing much to care about, so the main thing is the lack of the Choices logo.
Once more if you want to actually see more examples of these before you make a decision let me know. Or if you have made a decision one way or the other let me know that, too.
Hi, again. I just wanted to let you know that since it's been more than a week since I uploaded the cover examples for you to consider, I have contacted @Fearless Diva to ask her if she's okay with me uploading them. You can read the thread I started here. I hope it's okay that I did that, since she is also an admin here. Thanks for your time.
Hi Wolf, what do you think of these styles being used on the wiki? (Don't worry, the first two are from another wiki and the last one, only I can see since I changed my personal css). Do you think it would be a good idea to have this style of comments, profiles and wiki activity on the wiki? I talked to Selena but she said I should come to you since you handle the code and everything. I think it looks quite cool and it's also really modern.
I was going to add the book template in a new page for an upcoming book and I didn't find it on the list of templates in source mode. I saw it listed under the non portable infoboxes. So I assume that's why I can't find it in the list of templates. I ended up going to one of the book page, copy the template and paste it on to the new page.
I try to check for a problem when I go to another book page. I clicked on the book infobox template, it only shows delete when using visual mode. I know it will show the edit and delete options.
Thanks Wolf. Oh and one more thing if you don't mind. Can you delete the images listed below? I have uploaded the full version of the images and checking for any duplicate images that needed to be deleted.
Hello, I was earlier looking for the Choices wiki so I went to choices.wikia.com but it didn't exist so I thought there wasn't a wiki until a friend sent me this. Wouldn't it be easier if that was the url? I also play Episode and the wiki url is also episode.wikia.com instead of episode-choose-your-story.wikia.com
So what do you think about it? I can always contact wikia to change the url :)
Um I don't see any difference with the Choices and Episode name, Episode in the app store is also named "Episode - Choose Your Story". People will still find this wiki since the name is the same and the url is just a redirect, it's just a shorter and cleaner url.
So, I've been on this wiki for a bit now and I'm one of the few that has actually gone out of my way to try and make this wiki as good as it can be and am still trying to do that. I'll admit, I don't have the most amount of experience with administratorship (although I am admin on the Big Little Lies wiki) but I do know what needs to be done as an admin and that we're here to serve the community, not lord over it. I think the quality and quantity of my edits are good enough to be considered and even granted adminship. (but of course that choice is up to you).
Either way, I just wanted to let you know that it is something I'm thinking about and would, yes, like to become an admin. But I'll abide by your decision, if you choose to say no.
Lastly, I did speak to Selena about it and she said it would help as she isn't on 24/7.
So, I had an idea. The idea is to change around the formatting of some of the ES character pages; especially on pages that we have history for and put a biography there instead: for example Jake McKenzie, Estela Montoya and Quinn Kelly.
It's just basically to make sure it flows better and we are able to get as much info on the page as we can. I asked FD and she told me to come to you and to ask others. Also, if you decide to give it the nod and you don't like it, we can always just change it back or do it as a trial run if you want.
Lastly, as I'm going to be putting the events of the books on the characters pages for pretty much all of the series except ILITW, we could maybe do it for the majority of the character pages that need in-depth info put on them.
