Hey - in poking around I noticed that the infoboxes have not been updated to the portable versions so the mobile versions are largely unstructured and difficult to read. Do you want some help converting them over? There would be some admin work needed on the CSS to restore the background color and such for the web version, but at least the mobile versions would be understandable. Look forward to your thoughts - Cheers.
You around Stan? I have some time to work on migrating the templates if that works for you. I'll either need your help, or admin rights, to handle the CSS changes that will be needed. Let me know as I'll be around working on some other pages in the meantime. Cheers
Roland is one of my childhood heroes. An Avatar for people like me, you might say. Across the series Roland is described as being pale and unnaturally tall, with bright blue eyes. He is described as a sort of mix of Caucasian, Latino (Southern European) and Vaugely Asian. I see him as the Vampire Hunter D type.
not this guy. This guy would make a fantastic Bond, because the Bond Lore allows for it. There is no one Bond, it's a codename for many different agents. Perfect Bond.
How do you think black fans would react if Leonardo Dicaprio was set to play Kunte Kinte in a revamp of Alex Haleys Roots? I think it was pretty cowarly of you to close the thread when us fans were venting our spleens about this debacle. Also making the Bad Guy a white man was fine, huh? Perpetuate the lie about whites oppressing blacks? Personally McConohey(sp?) makes a fine Flagg/Marten/ Man in Black, but it creates a false conflict within the plot. Good job being an apologist for the production company though. Elba is a mediocre actor, but it's obvious he'll take any job he can get (Ghost rider 2, anyone?) as he obviously has no love for the story or the characters
Thanks for your feedback! Uneeded drama on such a simple matter. Roland isn't saving the Tower constantly so we can all sit around and complain, I left the thread up for a year and a few months, so no, cowards act first, I waited. Tired. That's what I am. You can only beat a dead horse for so long until you smash it into dust.
Hi Stan! With the imminent release of The Dark Tower film, I'm wondering how you plan to handle the character articles. Will the film information go in the same articles, or are you planning on separate articles for the film characters? I'm more than willing to help by creating those articles for the main characters.
Hi Stan -- with the global release of the new FANDOM headers, I took it upon myself to update the wordmark a little with a white board to make it stand out against the new header color. I've also added a header image to emulate the "other worlds" slogan that was previous there through CSS.
Hi Stan -- sorry I missed the reply. If you want, I can see about drafting a new wordmark to better complement the color. Alternatively, changing the color of the header might work as well, and then revert back to the original black colored wordmark.
Hi, I'm Mike from Fandom's Community Development Team! With the new Dark Tower film (hopefully!) releasing this year, I want to offer my help in redesigning the main page. This would involve updating the wordmark and background, and reorganising the content with an eye to showcasing content relevant to the film. I see that my colleague, Ryan, has already introduced himself and that you were receptive to some help, so I hope that is still the case!
It's something willing to consider. However, I do not think incorporating the film appearance heavily into the main pages is a wise choice. The main fan base are more interested in the books, and judging from forum pages, the movie isn't looking too appealing right now. That being said, the Wiki seems more enriched in the books. If you have designs, I'd be willing to look them over, and maybe have you persuade me.
Sorry, my comment was not to suggest changing the actual article and content pages themselves. My mistake - I did not make myself clear. This would really only center around the main page itself to capitialise on interest surrounding the film. The actual content pages themselves would continue as they are. I would like to knowr how you plan to incorporate the film content into the articles, or if you plan to create separate ones for the film versions? In either case, I will mock up some main page redesigns on a test wiki and then show them to you for approval/modifications.
Hi Stan -- glad you like the design! No need to do anything on your part. As Fandom staff, I can implement the changes without the need for local administrator rights. If you provide some ideas for the poll, I can integrate it into the new design.
Hi Stan -- I've gone ahead and pushed the new design across. If you have any ideas for some polls, I can create a new section and add them in. Let me know if there are any problems with the new design!
Hi there, my name's Ryan and I'm a member of Fandom's Community Development team. I just wanted to drop in and introduce myself. I'm a huge Stephen King fan and have read the Dark Tower series multiple times. I know the Dark Tower movie's coming out in the summer of 2017, so I wanted to offer any help you might need or any resources I can provide in anticipation of that. The wiki looks great and seems really thorough so it looks like you've got it under control, but just wanted to put it out there that if you need anything at all, feel free to reach out to me. I'd be more than happy to help out! Thanks!
Hi; is it possible to edit a bit of the article about the castle of the Crimson King? I am french and when I read "Le casse roi russe" I went here to see why it was named like that, because it doesn't make sense (Casse= to break; Roi= King; Russe= Russian,) so as you can see it doesn't mean "Castle of the Crimson King". Thank you
I'm interested in the admin position if it's still available. I recently created an account here so I could do some cleaning up, revision, and expanding. I look forward to helping you guys out here either way!
I acknowledge that you are ready SC. However, you are too young yet. Much like Roland challenging Cort at 14, I think the odds are outbalenced. Please see Admin Talk to see the requirements we have set in place for potiential admins.
