I'd like to draw pics![edit]

I'd really like to draw pictures for you. I wondered if you could use me and my drawings in your website. I can draw every single dragon and was hoping you could let me! Please get back to me on this! ~ Treerock

You are more than welcome to draw and upload art -- it's one of the best parts of the wiki. The instructions on the upload page should be pretty clear, and be sure to categorize your artwork by adding this to each page: [[Category:Artwork]] -whitearrow 15:20, 5 January 2011 (PST)

How do you link a picture to a page? ~Treerock

Please see the relevant Help section -- everything is explained there, with examples. Thanks. -whitearrow 13:44, 12 January 2011 (PST)
I typed in [ [ Category:Artwork ] ] (the talk page wouldn't let me type double brackets right next to each other sorry) and it didn't show up. Am I doing something wrong? --Treerock 16:10, 12 January 2011 (PST)
If you did that to link an image rather than to insert a category, yes, you need to use the "Image:imagename" link, not a category. Please do look at the image help page which has specific examples about how to link images. -whitearrow 16:15, 12 January 2011 (PST)
Sorry I'm really confused. Where exactly do I type in "Category:Artwork" because when I put in the picture, All that comes up is a File name/location box, an image name box and a summary box. Is that right?--Treerock 12:14, 16 January 2011 (PST)
You add that to the image's page -- I added it to Image:Celestial.jpeg for you. That puts the image in the Artwork category. To link the image to a page, use [[image:celestial.jpeg]]. More examples are on the image help page. Hope that helps. -whitearrow 14:37, 16 January 2011 (PST)

Drawing Pictures?[edit]

Do I need permission to draw pictures for you? --Ivy 10:53, 22 October 2011 (MDT)

No, you don't. Thanks for asking. -whitearrow 20:42, 22 October 2011 (MDT)

Images uploading broken?[edit]

The strange thing is the fullview is ok, the miniatures are screwed.

In fact uploading anything seems to be broken - after hitting "save" on anything I get a few symbols ( ďťż ) on a white page (though the submission is proceeded).

red links[edit]

  • I did a #REDIRECT page for Maila Yupanqui --> Maila but the Maila Yupanqui link is still red. Normally it should be blue. What's wrong?
The redirect seems to be working fine.
  • Is there a category for the Incans? Or the Russians ("Category:Russian")? I used "Category:Russian]" but it is still red because I haven't added yet all the russian characters
The Russian category is fine. I added a description so it is no longer red. Use Incans if appropriate.
  • Do you have a template for historical persons? (like "Template:RealPerson" ...) I just put the external links to wikipedia.
No, please just use whatever category they would into.

Please sign your talk posts with three squiggles :) - whitearrow (talk)

new category gods?[edit]

  • Shall I open a category "Gods"? There are a lot of gods (16) (incan, chinese, roman, greek, japanese). -LordJinai
Sure, that's fine. -whitearrow (talk)
  • What category shall I put there (under Category : Gods)? I don't know if "imprecation" is the correct word for what I mean (in most of the roman gods articles). Could you correct it if it is wrong? -LordJinai
"Gods" is fine. -whitearrow (talk) 17:43, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
  • There are just 3 or 4 persons in the Category:Austrian. What about a Category:Roman for the people appearing in the Vici short-story? Or a Category:American for all people that are american but not incan (Brazil, USA)? I propose to shift the Category:Larrakia to Category:Australian because there is just one entry (to shift the entry Larrakia People and to erase the Category:Larrakia]]). -LordJinai


On the pages "Blood of Tyrants" and "Caracters in Blood of Tyrants" it is said that Tecumseh is President. Ihad the same discussions with my forum mates. I believe that NN didn't change the heads of state (she didn't, concerning the british prime ministers...). After my opinion Wampanoag is just mixing two thoughts. The first: "I would have liked Hamilton to negotiate with the Japanese but Tecumseh is a good man too to do this." The second: "Yes Temeraire, I've seen the President already and I've even had tea with him." Madison was President, I don't think Tecumseh was in NN's universe. May I write this (because two other articles meant the other version I wasn't sure if I should write my opinion)? -LordJinai -30 of June 2015 12:00 CET-

Why don't you open a discussion on the Talk page, and leave a message for whomever wrote the text, so hopefully they get an alert about it? This way you guys can hash it out. - whitearrow (talk) 16:14, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Ask Naomi[edit]

I'm not sure whether I may ask it here or not. Where are the answers of "Ask Naomi" posted? It was reactivated but I just find these two FAQ answers. Second: When I first vistited this Wikia, Lung Tien Zhi was a son of Lung Tien Ming and you didn't know how Ming was related to the other Celestials. Now, Ming and Zhi are cousins and sons of Lung Tien Xian. Did somebody asked NN about it or for which other reason did you change it? Third: Does NN answers more questions for those who were busy writing on the Wikia? LordJinai (talk) -7. July 2015- (CET) 10:12AM

I'm not sure where the Ask Naomi answers are posted -- probably elsewhere on the site? I don't know about the cousins/sons thing, maybe leave a note for whomever edited the page. Naomi doesn't generally answer questions specifically for the wiki outside of her general Q&A opportunities; it is just too time-consuming, sorry. whitearrow (talk) 16:14, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Category sorting error[edit]

I already added some individual dragons but they don't appear in the categories "Dragons" or "Individual Dragons". So the pages can by now just be found through searching, not by links. I don't know what I made wrong, can you fix it? LordJinai (talk) -6. Nov 2016- (CET) 1:24 PM

As I think I've mentioned I cannot fix anything on the technical side at all. Please double check to make sure the categories are listed properly. If it's still an issue, I can pass along the problem. whitearrow (talk) 17:54, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
