About this board

Not editable

The Town Hall is a place where users can meet and discuss larger changes to the wiki, such as policy proposals and new ways of displaying and organizing information. It serves as a way for users to be involved without having to find a relevant discussion page. Please be constructive and courteous when corresponding with fellow editors.

We're testing this new discussion system for the Town Hall right now. You can still view the old Town Hall.

Just as Wikipedia does yearly donations, have ya'll ever thought about allowing a donation area to help with server costs/domain renewal/etc via something like a paypal or anything? Even if it's a small donation I'd love to help. Over the years I've visited the site enough.

I think this is a good idea. AIO Wiki is such a great resource that I would be happy to give some money to help its upkeep!

Bump :) (hoping for an admin/mod response lol)

Hey all! Some of you might have seen Moviemanev making edits and uploading photos recently. This is Evan David, content producer (I believe) for AIO! This is the first time in my memory when a member of the AIO team has been directly involved with the wiki.

I’ve been considering how to regard Evan’s edits here on the wiki. Because he’s on the team, and since he’s been creating canon (or not, depending on how the “old guard” decides) with his social media posts, he could have the potential to create canon directly with an AIOWiki edit. This would give him a privilege that no other user has, although he would still be bound by the general guidelines for users and non-sysops.

I see two alternatives for Evan’s edits:

  1. Prohibit canon creation through AIOWiki. Details and new images must have already been released on social media, the official site, or other public means.
  2. Regard the content of any constructive edit by Evan as canon. Canon would be expanded to include direct additions made by Evan or the final edit by Evan of those additions, along with the final version of any file uploaded by him. This would not canonize entire pages in which he makes one edit but rather just the text added by his edit. Evan can only remove from the canon what he has added; striking edits made by other users is not sufficient to remove their subjects from canon.

Thoughts?

Aiow (talkcontribs)

I think the first option is the better and safer route. I welcome expanded canon aio content. However I do not think we should be counting contributions on the wiki as creating canon. Official AIO should come from an official source. Opening up canon/world creation to essentially any wiki editor could or will cause problems. We do not want to host user created content as official. User created content is great, but not the focus of this wiki. We are here (as far as I understand it) to document everything created by the AIO team. Which gets back to the original question. I see the main problem being precedence. Even in this very unusual situation I do not think we can open up the door to calling user created materials official.

I think we should all share our ideas for what they should do for the issue of Will Ryan's death.

Club Seasons Album Covers

I noticed the thumbnails for the seasons don't exist. A couple of these I found online but I "made" a couple up by taking the soundtrack thumbnails and removing the word soundtrack (for seasons 6-8). They still have the music credits on the bottom cause I didn't want to take the time to photoshop them out. I don't know if I have permissions to upload them to the season pages or even if ya'll want them there, but here they are if you want to add them.

Since those aren’t official images, I don’t think it would be best to use them. We have custom images for upcoming albums and the unreleased episodes, but those have been seen as special cases on the wiki since they also aren’t official. If the other admins/users disagree, I’d be happy to reconsider.

ReCaptcha Issue

AIOFAN2009 (talkcontribs)

When I was signing up, I tried to use the new sign-up page. I ended up having to use the old one because the CAPTCHA on the new one is not working. Just letting the owners of the site know. Probably a problem on where the CAPTCHA code was inserted to the HTML code. Also, I turned on JavaScript and Pop-Ups and it still didn't work.

Thanks! (: AIOFAN2009 :) (talk) 08:15, 27 May 2022 (MDT)

I wasn't capable of filling out the Captcha, so i mentioned its incapability of use, and I was still accepted into AIO wiki.

AIOFAN2009 (talkcontribs)

Cool! Thanks.

We have an issue. It claims Matthew Parker is 12-13 years old, but Olivia is 12, so how is that possible?

Books Work Needed

OdysseyFan (talkcontribs)

so Jones and Parker got a Repack and a book 2 so they need a series Overview page, book 1 and book 2 pages and notes on the Original Book 1 cover. Artwork uploaded. NAv Template updated, I'd say Superslueths and The Nemesis are fine for now, but if they get in deep prob need to abbr to JP1, JP2.

thank you

I have recently noticed that the broadcast schedule for June 2022 is completely missing. Does anyone know why it isn't created yet?

Aiow (talkcontribs)

So sorry. That is my fault. Life has been crazy, and I simply let it slide. June and july's are up now.
