  • Hi, Snhnry. Haven't heard much from you about the movie, but I'm guessing based on your "Owl Star" comment that you didn't care much for it either. In any case, things have been going fairly well on making updates for it. For the most part, I think the existing pages we have are good in terms of covering it, but I've identified a few topics that I think might merit their own film-based pages. Let me know what you think about the possibility of creating film versions of any or all of the following:

    - Time Freeze - LEPRecon - Magic - Troll - Haven City


    I'll integrate anything else that doesn't merit its own page into the existing articles.

    • Okay so I actually found Clay Moore and Sky Willow as well.

    • Ah, thanks! Well, nice to finally put some names to faces. As for the new article creation, sounds good. I think I can make good pages for both LEPRecon and Troll, the others, yeah, no reason not to just integrate them into the existing articles.

  • Snhrny - just a heads-up that I just deleted a page called "Artemis Fowl Backstory" that was posted by a user called "Sub2funzies." You can check the deletion log if you want to see it, but trust me, it was complete nonsense.

    • That's cool, I would have done the same you just beat me to it.

  • So I was recently contacted about a planned new feature for the wiki. I don't really know all the details yet, but they want me to try work on some specific pages. Regarding pages for the film, are we planning to have separate pages for anything that's in the film? In other words, should something like Gnommish be getting its own film-specific article? Anyway, really looking forward to the film - less than a week to go now!

    • I've only been splitting out film pages if there are significant differences between the books and the film. I also weigh how long the article will be in general.  If it is a longer article, I would split it into a tabbed film version.

    • That makes sense to me! Alright, sounds good for know, and I guess we can evaluate for more once the film itself actually comes out. That will, of course, let us really see where the content is.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah I'm constantly reminded how little we actually know about much of the film.  Some of the character pages are almost empty because we just don't have any info yet.

    • Agreed. Unless I'm mistaken, that A Fowl Adventure book is the only one that's really given us actual story content, and that's pretty thin. But not too much longer before we'll have the whole motherlode all at our fingertips. That's the nice thing about the Disney+ release - all of it right there to pursue and use at leisure, the second the film releases.

  • I noticed that the film seems to refer to the character as "Artemis Fowl Jr." rather than "Artemis Fowl II," so I created the film version at that name, though still with "(film)" at the end. Feel free to change it if you don't think that's a good idea, but I think it makes sense to go with the naming in the film.

      Loading editor
    • I debated this, since they're both technically correct, but ended up going with the Artemis Fowl II because it's what we already have for the book version.  I think Jr. flows better though, so I don't have an issue with it.

  • Snhnry - I went ahead and created the spoiler template over at Template:Spoiler. Let me know what you think of it and if you think there should be any changes. Also, did you want to categorize articles that have spoilers on them? If so, let me know and I can try to work in that functionality - for right now, I just wanted to go ahead and get it set up. I haven't really had too much experience making templates in the past, so I wanted to just go ahead with the basics.

    • Great, I'll look at it and start working on getting that and the new main page integrated.  I personally can't think of a compelling reason to categorize spoilery pages, but I don't really know the best practices for that.  If we can get it set up, great, if not I wouldn't worry too much about it.

      Also, I actually got the digital versions of all the new books, so I'm going to be adding the important images from those.  I noticed the images you added seem to be scans or actual pictures of the pages, so I was hoping to update those with digital versions for maximum quality.  Just wanted to let you know before you got too far into adding them.  I appreciate the time you took to do it, though!

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, sure, digital versions would be much better! You go ahead and replace those then. And if I have any others, how about I just go ahead and upload scans of the ones that I want, and then you can replace them with the appropriate digital versions?

      As far as the spoilers, I think some wikis do and some don't, but personally, I can't really think of a practical reason for doing it either, so my personal inclination would be to leave it off. But once we have more film info, I might create a portal of sorts for material related to the film.

        Loading editor
    • P.S.: I see you've also started creating characters specifically for the versions of the characters as seen in the film. Cool. I'll see about working up some sort of system soon for identification between the two different versions and that sort of thing.

  • Snhnry - I just got my hands on a copy of this book and I was wondering if you would be okay with me adding information from it to the wiki. From what I can tell, it seems to cover the first part of the film, which in many ways is similar to the original book, but diverges on a couple of key plot points. If you want, I could also work up a spoiler template that could be used on any articles that have information originating from the film or an associated product.

    • Great timing, I also just got all the new books and have been gathering info from them.  Go ahead and add whatever you like.  A spoiler template sounds good as well.

        Loading editor
    • Cool! I don't have much more time tonight, but I'll make it my first priority tomorrow. I don't have any of the other new books yet, though I definitely plan to get them. So for now, I'll make this one my priority, and if you want to work on stuff from some of the others, that would be great.

    • There's some fantastic info on some of the lesser talked about characters and species, and we finally have a picture of a Kraken, that's exciting.  I'll be uploading a bunch of it soon.

    • Sounds really neat. Looking forward to seeing all of it, and, of course, the film next month on Disney+.

  • Hello again! With the film inching closer, we'd like to work on some updates, including the main page and navigation to help bring focus to the film and novels. Would you like to work together to design that, or would you like me to set up a sample on a sandbox first?

    • I sure hope it's not spelled Aculus, otherwise Disney will have to reprint all of the tie-in books they've published so far.  Definitely let me know what you find out, that's really interesting.

        Loading editor
    • Agreed. In the meantime, I've gone ahead and added the alternate spelling to the page for the time being and also created "Aculus" as a redirect. If it turns out it's "Aculos" when the film releases, we can just get rid of them.

  • Hi! With the film coming out in about three months, I was wondering if I could make some updates to the main page to feature information about the film. Some details about the film itself, pictures of the characters as how they appear int the film, stuff like that. Thanks in advance!

    • For the movie info, would it be fine to update the "Featured Article" section of the main page with info for the movie?  In the interest of getting the info on the main page as soon as possible.

        Loading editor
    • That would be good. And perhaps once we start getting more information about the film proper, we could update the character images to feature stuff from the film and maybe make some other updates. I'm hoping that Disney gets on with releasing more info soon - it's kinda annoying that this is coming out in May and the only official poster still lists the old August release date and there's still only the one trailer.
