I am checking all of your updates for Geralt of Rivia, why did you delete that Yennefer is love of Geralt's life in books under Personality? I mean it seems like Yennefer doesn't play any role in his life which is totally wrong...Sapkowski created Yennefer for Geralt and yet I don't see almost anything about this important fact. I am really curious why did you deleted that or if you plan to edit the Personality section with more info about importance of Yennefer and Ciri n Geralt's life because seriously I lack this information in the seciton!

Thank you a lot I just wish people wouldn't forget about Yennefer (I see a lot of biased edits because of the romances in games) but if some fans like it or not Yennefer had big impact for Geralt's personality in books and basically next to Ciri it is the most important person to him in saga, I just don't get how anyone who is fan of Witcher books can miss this.
XD thanks. I can't do it right down because I'm from mobile and I'm not very good at it. Perhaps I'll try later or ask Mechemik. Also I wouldn't write those cards in infobox but I would create a paragraph called Meve's starting deck.
Yeah aha, I was really into that but then i felt like writing it wasn't up to the quality you or Mechemik could write it, as Mechemik would completely rewrite my work, so I figured Mechemik or you would have written it better.

Small details like that, where it's not important to the overall story, aren't really needed (player can read the books in full to get the full pictures :p ) Obviously the unicorn part is left because it keeps coming up in other areas.
As for moves and other, should we merge Alvin with Jacques de Aldersberg? It might be spoilerous, but Duny's real identity is way more spoilerous (especially for newcomers from TV series) and yet we have it merged under Emhyr.
I noticed that you've undone nearly every change I've done in this wiki, which would be ok if those changes wouldn't be useful or interesting or something like that.
Well, if you love playing gwent like I do and your goal is to complete your gwent card collection, it's really nice to know which gwent player rewards you with a card and which not. So if there's an innkeep or any other kind of gwent player and you look him up in the wiki, I would expect so find some kind of information about the reward for beating him, even if there is none it would be nice to know so you could simply spare him and use your time otherwise in the game. I'm sorry if my english is not flawless and maybe those short sentences I wrote weren't completely correct, I'm from Vienna btw, but the information I tried to provide wasn't unnecessary or even incorrect. Are you actually aware that the "Collect them all" quest isn't linked at every gwent player which has a part in it or otherwise that it is linked at gwent players who won't give cards as a reward, which is kind of a hoax ?
I even thought about elaborating the Blood & Wine gwent quests which I'm not interested in anymore, thanks to you.
Aren't wikis actually community projects to gather facts about a topic, some important, some worth knowing, some subsidiary and even some fun ones, it seems to me that not every aspect is appreciated here.
I’m so sorry, I should have sent you a message explaining. The rewards from beating the vendors is random, and just because you got something doesn’t mean someone else will. Plus, you had a couple of spelling errors and saying “he just plays for fun” isn’t really up to standard. The vendors are all contributing to the quest, but they only give a card on their first match.
Well if I had to prove something I would say, that If you already seem to know that the rewards are random at each of those vendors I tried to edit, then you should add this little piece of information in their description, since you haven't done this I assume that you're not sure about that.
And to repeat myself, not every gwent player who is a part of the collecting quest has this quest linked on their side and as I've already told you, my native language isn't english. So there sure could be spelling or grammar mistakes but instead of deleting everything, you could have just corrected them.
I just wanted to point some things out, hoping someone would take care of it since my effort isn't desired and because I know how difficult it can be to work on a wiki which won't stop growing which is actually a good thing but just pretty exhausting.
So no thank you, I don't need to talk to anyone else.
Actually we have a list right on the gwent players page to see who gives a unique card or not. Those who don't means they may not give a random card as a reward (instead may give crafting components or a small amount of coin instead). All cards that are random are marked on their respective pages as well (though you can also view each deck page to make it easier to see which ones are randomly rewarded).
Hi juraj i dont know if you have "Zrada" a witcher comic book, it is in polish and i need to know as much information about it as possible. Can you either please send me a link to a translated version or tell me the info yourself.
He was Human, Male, Toussaintois, Had a brother, appeared (mentioned only) in BaW. Mechemik and I would like to have an infobox on as many pages as possible. Its consistent and gives quick information quicker than text you see?
Also Downtoearth, remember not to write things as it did happen (versus can happen) unless it's something that can't be avoided (main quests). Everything else is written more like "If Geralt meets so and so or does such.." etc.
Oh, yours mustn't have shown up, didn't see it until now. I feel until we have more than a sentence to describe the department (with the sentence being something than stating "this is a department at the Oxenfurt Academy") the pages leave much to be desired. By combining them, we also keep users from having to go back and forth on pages to see such little information. Now if one day we suddenly get a lot more info, I'd glady separate them out again.
lmao, well I can't seak for everyone, but I just think of Australia of that cool, if a bit funky langage, area where the majority of people live on the west coast and all the other areas are barely inhabited. Oh, and every creature can kill you. How accurate is that? :p
Pretty much accurate, ilive on the coat, i think like 90% do, because its so hot and dry in the center. I have never seen many dangerous animals down south but i know up north its a great threat. I have been to the USA and Australia is quite similiar except for the heat, but dont get met wrong, in winter its just as cold.
This was all before my joining, so this is only from what I've gathered while cleaning up the wiki:
Remember my answer about why there are two official witcher wikis? Well, when they went to gamepedia, Game Widow ran a bot over here that did a LOT of forking (linking out to another competing wiki, in that case, gamepedia). That was a direct violation of Wikia's policy and so a Wiki staff member did a perm ban on them.
It's an iffy thing because so many locations are simply mentioned, not just in the games but the books as well that I fear it'd become a very bloated category, making it meaningless. I think it's best to just have in the appearances section as "mentioned" than anything.
Note: We don't capitalize titles in English unless it's right before their name (like "Queen Calanathe") or if it's actually their formal title and can't be referred to as any other way (example, if Calanathe could only be called "Queen of Cintra" and not "Cintran queen"). Otherwise "king/queen/duchess of X land" is the standard, no caps.
Also, as you didn't see my comment on Schwann, if a person appears in both the books and games, we go by the book/canon for status. If it's unknown in the books we don't put anything.
Well 1) trivia isn't for game quotes, it's for outside references (like say Roach was actually named after a famous, real world horse) leading to 2) trivia shouldn't include every little thing, otherwise it makes the page meaningless (like why we don't list every Temerian on "Temeria" page, it'd be too much information and would then defeat the purpose beause if readers just see walls of text they'll become disinterested).
That's why I've just been creating temporary WIP sub-pages to try and consolidate information from the books before merging it over to a character's page. But yeah Geralt's is... going to be freaking huge. And we still can't get his timeline right so we don't actually know when certain book events happened.
Thaler is never actually mentioned by name, only that the man was a spy, though the clues heavily imply it, that's why we can't actually say it was him (and thus only the note to state it all points to him).
Hello there Jack! Do you, by any chance, have a TW1 save where Radovid and Foltest give Geralt the mission to kill Aldesberg? I need it to make sure because I think Radovid says to Foltest, before the dialogue scene, that he will 'stage a great hunt' or something along those lines. You know -- referring to TW2 and TW3 stuff.
PS: Do you plan to continue adding book info? We're still missing almost everything from Ciri's portal-travel in The Lady of the Lake and you already did a great job on "Y Dynan Bach Tegdwell" dudes :)
I don’t know really, as i am raising funds to go from Australia to Sri Lanka for three weeks and it is very time consuming as i also have school studies. As you may have noticed i am not as active the last couple of days.
Within the last day. I had to make sure I got some other bit of code working and a few more minor fixes (no more weird vertical blue line between kingdom flags and coas!) and images will also have padding around them so they don't loook like they go edge to edge when the blue header below doesn't.
Yeah, we really should just make it default that lists of people should only be notable people unless it needs to list everyone for a specific reason (like all the mages' names that died on Sodden Hill).
I don't know if it is possible in visual editor but in classic one, the easiest way for you is to copy the code from existing page that has those 3 columns, insert where you need it and change the subjects to your liking. That's how I do it anyway :P
Oh whoops, yes it did get lost, I can check it over. Though I'm still not sure from the books if "Deovel" was meant to refer to Sylvans as a whole or just tie villagers nickname for Torque in general. I'm guessing the former but I honestly can't tell.
As for the DA thing, yes I created one but haven't checked in on it in awhile.
I think I remember a bit in that story when a local wise woman read Physiologus and mentioned deovel as another name for a sylvan. Wasn't it there? I am also currently rereading Season of Storms and fauns got mentioned. I would consider that as another name for sylvans too but it isn't explicitly stated so I don't want to act hastily.
My vote's no because 1) we already have a page that lists all of them and 2) the category wouldn't really fit in with the others. We keep track of mages, merchants, witchers, etc. beause they're occupations while the only reason someone would need to see gwent players is to know who they can play (and particular, who have unique cards) which is already covered on one page and the same reason we don't have a category for dice players.
By that, I also mean things like you recently added to the New thread. Because then I write something to Bizippo/SMiki55 but until he comes around there's an entirely different discussion going on and the entire place is full of chaos. I hope you understood and won't take offence.
Basically, the way it works is to treat "country" as "state/country/kingdom". Even if it's a vassal state, it's still a state and run by a semi-independent ruler, unlike a region (like the blue mountains is a region but it crosses through several different governments).
I like to make sure they are correct, as past info from other sites have sometimes been wrong or outdated... and why it takes longer to add them because that's what I'm doing, actually checking in game to make sure they're correct before adding.
Except captions aren't meant to be treated like normal information on the page, otherwise that defeats the purpose/coding. It's only meant as flavor, so to speak, otherwise wikia wouldn't have tied the code to the images themselves and left it to be just another text field like the rest.
Jack, please read the books again before removing categories. Cahir does appear in those books, quite prominently in one (as Ciri almost kills him actually) and as a smaller role when he first found her in Cintra.
Hmm, it might be better to just add them to the main list instead (like how the food page is). I know it's not a complete list yet, but it doesn't look like there'd be a lot (right now we list less than 20).
That page will actually be getting a massive facelift as we need to add in her story from the books. So really, just avoid major character pages for now as they'll be redone eventually (Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer, Triss, Philippa, etc.).
@Jack: Jarl of Skellige, despite how it sounds, isn't a title but a very specific military rank that grants it's owner leadership of the entire armed forces of Skellige. Being a jarl of An Skellig for example doesn't yet make you a Jarl of Skellige ;)
Oh to be honest after i left white orchard i dint go back so i thought there was no Innkeep until i saw a video of if Ciri becomes Empress (Something Ends, Something Begins), so i suppose it is even more needed than i thought
No haha, also i think we need to update the Faithful Friend page, maybe add a page for the horse in it, called Gulden, because the whole quest is based around that horse. It is also mentioned by Dandelion in the SE,SB quest that he has a sister, as this is non-canon, i didnt add it to his infobox
Mechemik can you over you reverting my edits, I noticed that in the game the Last Wish books says there, not that that, so I changed it. I am convinced that you don’t look at my edits or the Emhyr book edit
It's because some of the edits aren't correct (xp changes based on level and other factors so we list the max available when possible) or wrong categories (if the book is available though in Tw3, we need to remove it from BaW category)
I ask because the way Dulla describes it would rather suggest Ofir is an entire subcontinent with various kingdoms and empires. I would rather expect an emperor or a sultan to oversee it all, not a mere king. Or, at least, "king of kings"?
Calling a concubine prostitute is a bit vulgar. Think Ottoman harems. Dayo and the other girl were most likely abducted, prostitutes usually kinda choose their profession (even if not always but ya know...)
