  • Hi Lily,

    "The jaeger is rendered" requires a capital "J" in "Jaeger", though I can't make this minor edit because teh Guardian Bravo page is locked. I understand this may be because of a previous user's incorrect edits on the page. May you make this minor edit, or open up access to the page?

    Also, woud you be able to get back to me on my post from 06/10/19 on your wall, which I last commented on sometime last week? This is regarding the Uprising novelisation's canon status on the policy page.

    Thank you for your time, it is much appreciated.

  • Hi again! A quick update on Featured videos - at the end of this December, available featured videos will be receiving some trial run experiments. This is being done to improve video quality since they tend to be outdated or unnecessary, therefore the main goal will be to figure out how to complement its content. Because of that, you might receive a video called "The Loop" play for anonymous users. It won't affect all users, so you might not notice. But if you want to learn more, you can go to the blog post. Let me know if you have any questions!

  • Hi again, Lily! I'm writing to let you know about the Global Taxonomy. This is a feature that accumulates wikis a user visits into a list of recommended wikis tailored to them. In this context, it'll attract fans and newcomers to the wiki! You can read more about it on the blog, plus if you're interested in template use, you can check out this link, too. Hope you find them helpful!

  • Hi Lily,

    I've been inactive here in terms of editing for a little while, hope you've been well.

    I'd like to ask about why Uprising's novel is listed as "non-canon" on the canon policy page. Both the first movie's novelisation and Ascension are listed as "canon, unless contradicted by film or writers", and this is indeed true. The novels tend to be mostly canon, though there are indeed parts which conflict with higher canon, and can individually be discarded. Why doesn't this same principle apply to the Uprising novel? I have not yet read the Uprising novel, but surely it should have the same canon status as the other two novels. Is it intentionally listed as "non-canon"? I'm sure the status of the other two novels should also be applied to it, having it canon unless contradicting the film or writers. These novels contain plenty of extra information not shown in the movies, that add a lot of depth. Most of this additional information doesn't conflict with the movies or writers, and adds a lot to the canon. I am talking about Ascension and the first movie's novel here, though surely Uprising's novel (which I am yet to read) is the same.

    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Many thanks,

    Spartan.

    • Thank you for the response Lily.

      There are already quite a few non-canon parts to the first PR's novelisation, but it still contains plently of canon info too that doesn't contradict the movies, and isn't seen in them. Even Ascension, which as you said is mostly fully canon, has some incorrect info which can easily be discarded. I am also yet to read the Uprising novelisation, but I strongly believe its canon policy should be changed to match that of the other novels. Anything conflicting with the movies can be discarded as non-canon, but the novel will certainly have plenty of additional information which will add to the canon lore. Even if newer content decanonises something in a novelisation, the novelisation would still contain plenty of other non-conflicting info which would remain canon. Will we get to assign the Uprising novelisation the same status as the other two novelisations, canon apart from where it conflicts?

      Thanks again.

    • Hello Lily,

      I can now confirm for certain that the Uprising novelisation does follow the "canon, unless contradicted by second film or writers" policy. Though I am yet to begin reading this novelisation, I was flicking through it and found this passage:

      "Drones went rogue and attacked in Anchorage, Guam, Lima, Attu… and Santa Monica, where November Ajax burned against the backdrop of the Kaiju bones at the pier."

      Which matches up with November Ajax's known, off-screen fate:  https://twitter.com/stevendeknight/status/1015114114614509568

      Once I begin reading the novelisation, I'll update November's page to reflect its destruction in its 'History' section. The novelisation had lore that was explained before being clearly stated by the producer, as with many other bits of lesser known canon info in the other two novelisations. Would greatly appreciate it if you could update the novelisation's canon policy to reflect this, I'm sure there are also countless other bits of canon info in the book that add onto the lore as well.

      Thanks for your time.

  • Hello! As the fandom has grown and changed, especially since PRU, Vanessa has gotten pretty popular in fanon as a specific version (present in, mainly, fic and the #karnessa on tumblr). I would like to request permission to update her page with a brief description of generally held fanon as a primer for new fans, especially those who get into the series through the upcoming anime. I would also like to update the section on discourse with current information.

  • Hi, Lily Ford.

    Do you still active? I have a suspicion on an user named Mark-5 Jaeger who expanding Mega-Kaiju page which may or may not mixed up with fanon articles based on the original. Can you check that page's article for me?

    Thank you.

    • It's not fanon, just over-description of details the article already covered.

    • I see.

      Well, I guess that it reminds me to my own past habits when it comes to expanding pages in wikia which unfortunately, not tolerated in Ultra Wiki.
