  • Hello there,

    I noticed you put the spoiler tag to the Wild Hunt Page. We decided with both Juraj103 and Bizippo that we will no longer use them for articles wit book info. The main reason is that the books are out in US for sufficiently long time now. Here is Juray´s oppinion on that:

    "Look, the idea to have separate pages for Duny/ Emhyr, Borch/Villentretenmerth, Saskia/Saesenthessis... was good maybe until last year, but currently? Many people who come here already know who these characters are, with their dual identities because books are for more than a year out and games? They never bothered with throwing novel spoilers (you learn Emhyr is a father of Ciri at the beginning of TW3, alternative card for Villentretenmerth shows Borkh and this goes for Saskia/ Saesenthessis as well).

    It is like if Wookiepedia had a sole page for Anakin Skywalker and sole for Vader, or Harry Potter Wiki for Tom Riddle and Voldemort. These dual natures were betrayed sometime ago, and this applies for the witcher as well. ScorpiO is not the first man who saw it unfit to have two pages for Duny and Emhyr, he was first to approach me with it though. In the case of Borch, well it was always that when someone typed Villentretenmerth on google or here on the wiki, then an article about Borch emerged so that much for the spoiler I guess. 

    Wikis always contained spoilers and with time I came to a conclussion that spoiler is something of importance for 1y or so, after that it ceases to be spoiler. What you think?"

    That is why I would like to ask you to not return it to the Wild Hunt page ;)

    Anyway, I wish you a nice day ;)

    • Ummm...actually the one who 1857a used was the spolier banner, not the tag, which is different.

    • Oh okay, sorry about that. I removed it

    • But I think that the spoiler banner can stay since Mechemik is putting it in many pages as Emhyr, Henselt...

    • @ Bizipo - sure, but it is kinda same, don´t you think?

      @ 1857a - Thanks man ;)

    • well that would eventually lead to amost every single article containing the spoiler banner...

    • Indeed i don't undertstand why they removed the tags and put the banners...

    • To be fair, Mechemik did not participate on our discussion so he may not be aware of that, Do not know if Juraj told him. Anyway, I will ask him about that.

      @ 1857a - We will now move out from your wall and leave it in peace. Take care :P :D

    • Actually they discussed togheter about this topic and they decided to put it.

    • Yeah, Juraj and I discussed it and decided it was better safe than sorry, since we occasionally had someone complain about things being spoiled for them in the comments section and the like. And yep, it'll probably mean a banner at the top of almost every major page.

    • @1857a I think that you can insert the banner again then :)

    • and wouldn´t in that case make more sence to add a general disclamer about potential spoilers on the mainpage? It is kinda weird to have virtually all the articles with the spoiler banner, I think

      But where is the problem if all the pages have the banner?

    • well I do not say it is a problem. It just..I don´t know, feels strange to have a disclaimer on every single page. I think one general disclaimer should be enough. ;)

      Anyway, if you want it on every page, then Ok ;)

    • Yeah, I get that, only one minor problem with that: those on mobile devices can't see the main page that we see on desktop, and the majority of our views are through mobile atm.
