My name is Jay, and I founded the roswellnewmexico.wikia.com and roswell-new-mexico.wikia.com. Earlier today, The CW ordered five pilots to series, one of them being the Roswell reboot, now renamed "Roswell, New Mexico". I actually created the wiki before they made the official announcement, because I found the show's secret Twitter account beforehand. However, I know that this is the central hub for Roswell, both the OG show and reboot. Thus, I'm asking if you'd like my wikis and their URLs merged into here, and if so, transfer my bureaucrat rights here? As you can see on roswellnewmexico.wikia.com, I created a preliminary design, given what I had. However, I can go further - I'm also an admin on the Pretty Little Liars Wiki and Criminal Minds Wiki, and I'm responsible for the entire design and main pages (minus the background) plus 80% of the coding, along with Altered Carbon Wiki. So, would you like to take my offer and its perks?
Apologies for the delay in getting back! I'm actually fine either way (merging or if you'd prefer to keep them separate), but if you are interested in merging the sites I'd be happy to grant you the necessary rights.
I'm not very active on this wiki continuously, but adopted it to provide some structure.
I would like that the work I've done thus far remains intact, regarding the category structure and general navigational paths.
I think having a condensed wiki would be best - when I created the wiki URLs, there wasn't a lot of traffic as I thought (but it wasn't unexpected given this wiki already has the traffic and is the recognized, official Roswell wiki given Witnessme's message to you underneath mine).
Your current work will remain intact - however, for the reboot, I'm thinking there should be new categories like "Female Characters (Reboot)", "Season 1 (Reboot)", etc. The category system will remain simple however. The navigation bar will remain the same if you wish.
Otherwise, the only changes I see right now is a new color palette in the theme designer, new reboot categories, and a possible main page redesign similar to the Pretty Little Liars Wiki (however, I can coordinate with you on that).
Cool. Feel free to revamp the design. The navigation bar should be updated to include the reboot. And yup, new categories will of course be created for the reboot series. The font for the original Roswell is actually Bank Gothic. The current one is the google font I could find which most closely resembles it.
Alrighty. I've identified the new Roswell reboot logo to be a font called "AF Restropective Roman", but the logo is a heavily modified version of it. The "New Mexico" part is a font I already know. The current wordmark will stay (given if it looks good against a black header) and we'll see if we can get a new wordmark from FANDOM Staff.
Hi Virvar - I recently contacted FANDOM Staff for help on a new wordmark. The wordmark will be the new logo of the reboot - seen here with the "WIKI" part being the same as the "New Mexico" part. However, they want your permission before accepting the request. The message they left me is here:https://roswell.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:3592
Hi Virvar; I'm Amanda with FANDOM's community development team! I'm reaching out to you to see if you are interested in a wiki update. I'd like to edit the mobile main page and add new pages once the reboot is released. Plus I'd like to add the new Roswell (Reboot) page to the main page slider. I also wanted to see if you were interested in turning on Discussions.
In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly, and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. You can read more about Discussions here.
For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.
If you have some concerns, Discussions and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.
Let me know what you think, and if you want to proceed I can get the ball rolling.
On a different note, I've been meaning to reach out to Community Tech as there's something wrong with the site, but got away from it again.
The pages keep "jumping" and showing site code when you browse thorugh various pages quickly. And sometimes the slider doesn't show up on the front page at all. Might you be able to help me figure out this issue?
