  • Hi, Virvar.

    I'm Matheus. I'm a huge fan of Gilmore Girls. I plan on rewatching the show later this year and I was thinking that, when I do, I could use my rewatch to help improve the wiki. One of the things I thought that could be improved is adding appearances to the characters pages, and changing the cast lists on the episode pages, to make them similar to the on-screen credits. For example, on the pilot article, we have this on the cast list:

    Recurring cast

    Liz Torres as Miss Patty
    Jared Padalecki as Dean Forester

    Guest starring

    Alex Borstein as Drella
    Emily Kuroda as Mrs. Kim

    However, in the actual episode, they're all credited as "Guest starring", and other actors are credited in the end credits as "co-starring" too. About the appearances thing, I thought about following a format similar to the Once Upon a Time Wiki, which you can see here.

    Of course, I need your approval to make all those changes, so I ask you to please consider those changes, because I think they would help this wiki get better.

    • Hi!

      Thanks for your message!

      The cast credits are listed this way to highlight guest stars that are featured more frequently than others (eg. mrs. kim for say, 13 episodes versus drella for, say, 3). That we have no interest in altering.

      Adding the credits to every episode would be very welcome as so far few users have done so or conveyed interest in doing so.

      In terms of appearances, the main characters need not have it as they're in almost every episode. It would be put at the bottom of the character pages and structured this way:

      Episodes

      SEASON 1 (?/??)

      [episode]

      except for the main characters, where it'd be:

      LANE DOES NOT APPEAR IN

      [episode]

      Thanks again for your message and interest in helping the wiki! Hope this answered your questions!

      Kind regards,

  • Is okay if I create a fanon page for my original character, Joshua Shelpman?

    • Hi!

      Sorry for the late reply! Unfortunately, we don't do fanon pages on the wiki.

      Thanks for your message!

      Kind regards,

  • While in the series it is stated that Lorelai was 16 when she got pregnant with Rory, she was actually 15. She turned 16 in April of 1984, and Rory was born in October 1984; so Lorelai was 15 when she got pregnant. (Nine months before October is January.) So, under the heading of Lorelai's youth, it should say that she was 15 when she got pregnant. Please make that change? LA (T) @ 20:11, March 1, 2020 (UTC)

    It was not stated in the series that Rory was born premature (6 or fewer months). LA (T) @ 20:13, March 1, 2020 (UTC)

  • Hey Virvar!

    I’m contacting you, because we want to get off on the right foot the year and after all the feedback received at Community Connect, we want to know more about the current status of the communities. First step is to analyze the previous year, so we would like to hear from you about 2019. It’s so important for us to know what’s your opinion about the work that we did in 2019. It has been a year of a lot of changes and we would like to continue working in the right direction and find solutions to any problem detected by you in the last year.

    We know that you could have questions about the UCP too, please feel free to ask me anything about it and I will share your concerns, comments and questions with the other Community Managers in order to obtain an answer as soon as possible.

    Finally, also I would like to invite you to rate the last year in Fandom from 1 to 5, meaning 1 as "definitely not good" and 5 like "this has been a fantastic year!". It would be super helpful for our work.

    BTW, if you haven’t joined us on Discord, feel free to do it, we plan to run some new projects there and use it as platform to communicate important things to TV/Movies communities, so you will be welcome to our server!

    And like I said, let me know if you have any question. I will be happy to help you.

  • Hello Virvar! My name is HighJewElfKing, and I'm the Fandom Wiki Manager for Gilmore Girls. My job is to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. We want to help you include your community on our Fandom app so it can attract mobile viewers! To do this however, we need to have a mobile main page setup. You can add a mobile main page by clicking the dropdown arrow on the homepage and selecting "edit" mobile main page. To help you all get a head start I added the Characters category and Lorelai Gilmore as well as Rory Gilmore to the featured content section. If you need any help at all with this process, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'm here to help! :)

  • Hi Virvar. I approved your request, so I uploaded the font to my sandbox wiki and edited MediaWiki:Common.css to import the font and set the styles for Template:Heading. Here is an example, using {{Heading|Gilmore girls}}.

    Gilmore girls

    Of course, edit MediaWiki:Common.css to adjust the color and font size as needed. Let me know if you have any questions or trouble.

    • Hi!

      Thank you so much for the help! It looks great. :)

      I was wondering, is it possible to create another template and add that to the CSS? I was considering making smaller headings for the separate elements on the front page as well. :)

      Thanks again!

      Kind regards,

    • I just created Template:Heading2 and added CSS for MainPageHeading2 to MediaWiki:Common.css using half the current font size of the larger heading.

  • Heyyy,

    I'm currently putting together a print publication for my final major project at university (although I plan to continue with it afterwards) focusing on knitwear. I've written a feature on the preppy/ college scarf and mentioned Richard Gilmore at the Yale vs Harvard match. The image you've uploaded on here is perfect and I really want to include it in the article. I don't know if you are the correct person to ask but thought I'd try anyway. Is it free to use or subject to copyright?

    The image: Ted_Koppel%27s_Big_Night_Out?file=409emrich.jpeg

    Thanks,

    Frankie
