  • Hi Ohmystars,

    I read the posts by Huffdogg and Nickoftime about the Kingkiller wiki, and though the story is not done, I think I have the perfect name for this archive. I had an epiphany last week while I was talking with some editors of another Wiki, and one of the old bureaucrats here (though I don't know his username).

    A great wiki has a really clever name that's a reference to something within the text. One could argue from an objective standpoint that "Wookieepedia" is the cleverest, but "Bulbapedia" and "A Wiki of Ice and Fire" (both of which are competitors) are pretty great examples. With that in mind, this wiki should clearly be called:

    Skarpedia

    Hear me out. We know little about Skarpi, but we know he is a man of significance. We also know that he is close to Kvothe and Chronicler both, and will likely have a much larger role in the third book. Finally, and most importantly, he is apparently a font of lore about Temerant and the Four Corners, just like this site. He is the perfect character to lend his name to this Wiki. Plus it's a great pun.

    Thank you for all of the work you have done on this wiki. It has been a welcome resource, and I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and helping when The Doors of Stone hits the shelves.

  • I just wanted to drop you a quick note telling you how much we appreciate all the work you've done to make this wikia as well formatted and comprehensive as it is. KKC is rich with subtlety, implication, and language. And this wikia does a phenomenal job of recognizing and reflecting that. So I guess I'm just saying.....Thank you. :-)

    • Hiya! Thanks for appreciating my work. I have been a bit busy lately, so haven't worked on the wiki. Hope to find time again soon. The wiki is far from finished, so any help would be welcome! :)

  • I've seen a mix of present and past tense in text describing events which took place in the books. Which is the standard here?

  • Hello again!

    I have some trouble editing my wiki's navigation bar: in the "World of Temerant" box, I put this:

    • El Mundo de Temerant
        1. category-Personajes#
        • Kvothe
        • Denna
        • Bast
        • Cronista
        • Auri
        • Elodin
        • Felurian

    Now the problem is that inside the "Personajes" (characters) box the list is not in that order, but in the order in which the category (the characters category) has the articles. Did I explain myself?

    How can I solve the problem?

  • I think some kind of glitch happened to the infoboxes when you edited them yesterday. When I try to insert them, where you would normally get the screen that you put the information into, it just says "this template does not have fields to edit." It'll insert the title into the page, and the source editor screen will say {{Book infobox}} or {{Character Infobox}} or whatever, but that's it. You can input the template information by, say, copying and pasting the categories from another page, and it works just fine, but the template itself definitely isn't working properly. At least, it isn't for me. Are you getting the same error, or is this just some weird thing that's only happening on my computer?

    • Hiya, sorry for the late reply. If you're talking about the infobox field editing thing in the Classic Editor that was available before, then it's not an error. I just converted the infoboxes to the new Portable Infoboxes that Wikia is developing. And since it is still under development, the Wikia developers haven't had time to enable that feature. They are aware of it though, as you can read here. I'm sorry, but I don't think there's anything we can do, unless we switch back to the old infoboxes (which I don't want). In the meantime there's no choice but to copy and paste from the templates into the source editor. If it really bothers you, let me know!

  • Hello Ohmystars!

    I have 2 questions:

    1.- Can you please tell me how did you do to create that "University index" where you can find all the articles related to The University, organized in groups? I mean, the one in the E'lir page, for example. I want to put it in my wiki as well, it is a great way to put together all the info about it!

    2.- The other question is about the "book infobox". I created one for my wiki, but where it says preceded by and followed by, instead of being next to each other, they are just the same as the other boxes. I suppose it has something to do with the html code, but I had to ask. 

    Thanks for your time!

  • Can you tell me about this?

    • Hi Hoanganh13, first of all thanks for visiting this wiki. I'm sorry if I did not really understand your question. Are you asking if I can tell you what this wiki is about? It's a wiki dedicated to the Kingkiller Chronicle, a fantasy book series written by Patrick Rothfuss. You should give the series a try if you haven't read it yet. Feel free to ask me any questions, but please formulate it a bit more clearly. :)

  • Hey there!

    Just wanted to ask you something... I'm the administrator of the spanish wiki of Kingkiller Chronicles, which is still at an early stage in terms of design, articles, etc. So I wanted to ask for your permission to "copy" this one's design (which I love xD), you know, colors, background... and use the information gathered here in order to translate it into spanish. (I've been doing this for a lot of articles, but now that I'm writing this message I feel the obligation to ask XDDD)

    And by the way, would it be possible to "connect" the two wikis so that the spanish people visiting this one could find the spanish version? I don't know, maybe using a link or something (though this is secondary, we can talk about this later...)

    Give it a thought and tell me. ;)

    • Sorry, I've been busy this past week. So the last step is to rename my wiki and inform about the other two, right?

      I'll try to do it later. Thanks for everything, Ohmystars and Cörey!!

    • Done, I requested the change of the name and URL, it should be completed in 2 or 3 days.

  • Hey I just wanted to pop in here and say that it's awesome to see someone from the "official" world of the Chronicle over here helping out.  I took over the Wiki some time back and put quite a bit of work into bringing it up to what I thought was a better standard, and then I just sort of ran out of stamina and I couldn't go any further on it.  It looks like you and Ziggelly are doing a wonderful job taking it to the next level.  Well done and thanks again!

    • Hey Huffdogg!!

      Happy to see you popping in! I wasn't around here when you were active, but I could see that you did a really great job back then. So thank you for your hard work! I hope your stamina has returned in full force and you'd consider contributing to this wiki again. There are way too few active users around. Most of the visitors just come to leave some comments and that's it. :(

  • Hello! Hey, I was wondering if you or anyone has any news on the release date of Doors of Stone. 

      Loading editor
    • Sadly, no. If there were news on the release date, we would surely announce it here. The last we know is that in october 2014 he had said at a reading that "at least a year is needed before the whole editing process begins", so that would mean that end of this year the editing may begin. Based on this information, It wouldn't be too outrageous to say that the book could be released in summer 2016 or something.
