  • Hi

    I would like to help update the emmerdale wiki, with the repeats on itv3 I see the info i entered has been removed

      Loading editor
    • I think that Qazwsx might have removed it as it wasn't formatted correctly. Would you like to add/readd the information to the repeats page and then either format it into the table yourself or message me and I'll format it?

    • can you show me how to format it? would it be easlier to e-mail you the info?

    • Whatever is easiest for you is fine with me.

      To format it, click on the down arrow next to the edit button and click on classic editor. Once on the classic editor, click on the source editor tab. Scroll down to the bottom of the table and press the enter key. Press the shift key and the "\" to get an "|" and then add a dash after the "|". This is needed to create a new line in the table. Press the enter key again and add another "|" then add two of the left square brackets and type "Episode" as well as the episode number. After typing the episode number, a drop down box should appear with the page you're aiming for. Press down and enter to accept this link. This saves typing out the full page name. Add two of the "|". This formats it so the information in the second column is formatted. After that add the information about when the episode + repeat was shown. Then repeat above steps for the next episode.

      Okay, reading that back I realise I've made that sound pretty complicated. It would probably be easier to copy and paste the last line and alter the information.

      If you would be easier for you, you could add the info to the page and I format it, or you message me the info and I add it.

    • Hi Souter,

      Thanks for offering your help. I do have the information, I just need to actually get it added to the page so don't worry if you're unable to work out how to do it as I will get round to adding it myself soon.

  • I notice others have spoken to you about this as well. I added about Jean Tate Snr having a residence. This was her residence at the time of her death.

    • Most characters who are dead don't have a residence listed as they are dead and the other ones should be removed. You can't live anywhere when you are dead.

    • I looked at all character who died after 2000 (over 100) and only 4 had residences which have now been removed.

  • Would you be interested if a section was added allowing users to freely discuss what they thought about an episode that aired?: https://emmerdale.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:36267

  • Could you please stop needlessly removing content that Dionhosseini801 adds. If you continue this, you may be blocked.

    • Also I corrected a typo about Steve Halliwell from "Stphen" to "Stephen" and it was reverted back to "Stphen". Qazwsx1972, there is no such name. Benny1982 (talk) 23:25, December 23, 2018 (UTC)

  • Why do u keep removing content repeatedly for no reasoning. You keep reverting Aaron's picture in the infobox to a less update image and you have been constantly reverting my changes whilst I was trying to update Kirin Kotecha's biography. Please explain why you have been my updates without stating why on the talk page at least.

  • Please explain why you removed content from the page Amba Metcalfe and reverted an administrator's edit without justification. Continue such actions without explanation and you will be blocked.

    • Sorry to interfere but Qazwsx1972 has done brilliant for this wikia across the nearly two years he's been on the site; helping to ensure spoilers aren't added, bogus edits aren't made, spoilers aren't added and the site continues to look his best. Sure, he does undo some edits that I/we/someone disagree/s with but a large majority of the time he is doing well. I also don't understand why he redid your edit of the info you added (although I do understand why he removed the image, Aks "established" a "rule" where the image should only be updated if the actor has had some sort of change (eg: hair colour, hairstyle, new actor, glasses) or it's a higher quality image). It's possible he might not have realised you are an administrator, however I do find it unfair that you threaten to block him for a possible slip-up especially since he has made nearly 1.1k edits, and a majority of users don't add summaries to their edits.

    • I understand, I certainly don't wish to block those who contribute to this wiki. I know not of an image update on the page in question, but text content I added was removed twice without justification, once manually, then my edit was reverted when I restored it. Now I work on several wikis whose policy is that even a single reversion of an admin's edit warrants an instant block, which I myself find a bit harsh though I understand where it comes from, that is why I did not place a block despite my edit being undone twice.

      I'm sorry if I came across as harsh, I just felt the need to settle the issue before it got out of hand. I suppose it is possible that he did not know I was an admin since Admin Usernames are as yet not highlighted unlike most other wikis, so he would have had to have seen my Userpage. As for not adding edit summaries, well, maybe that's something for us all to improve on. I am aware that Corriepedia for one requests all users to include edit summaries, and I certainly think some sort of explanation is required at least for this kind of action. I simply request that Qazwsx1972 justify what I saw to be an unjust removal of content.

    • I completely understand. I was actually thinking of proposing the idea of having differentiating wikia tags to make it easier to tell who is an admin, who contributes regularly/frequently etc.

      Also my apologies I got Qazwsx1972 mixed up with Ednasharon25434's IP address, Ednasharon25434 undid this edit on the Eliza Macey page.

      As an admin on two wikias and founder of two more I don't understand this - if a user disagrees with an edit, whether it is because it is a matter of an opinion, possible accidental removal of correct information or an bogus edit made, the user should have the right to be able to undo the edit and be asked why as opposed to just blocking.
