Hope this message finds you well! My name is Matt and I'm a Community Development Associate with Wikia. A&E has reached out to us promising some new Bates Motel imagery and we were hoping we could use some of it to replace the current skin. Is this something you would be willing to consider? We can send along the new art as soon as we have it -- all we know now is that its related to the coming season of the show and it's straight from the source, so it's bound to be of high quality.
I noticed at the top of the page under the 'Episodes' tab where it says 'Season 1', 'Season 2' and 'Season 3' that there's no arrow beside the latter which creates a drop down menu containing the episode titles. How do I go about fixing it?
I'm honestly not sure about that. I wasn't the one who added the Episodes tab to this wiki.
I would suggest you either a) ask the other admins about this (one of them is most likely the one who added the Episodes tab) or b) screenshot the top of the page and show it to a wiki staff member (they should know how to fix it or how you can find out).
Just wanted to let you know that I worked out how to do the drop down menu (I had contacted another admin but didn't get a response). I looked at it myself and just clicked on the "Edit Wiki Navigation" option from the "ContrIbute" menu and was able to add the Season 3 episodes to the tab.
I also added the Season 4 and Season 5 tabs and will update them with the episode titles whenever they're released. :-)
We definitely haven't talked in a while. How have you been? Also, have you watched any new shows such as Gotham or Forever? If you haven't, I would definitely recommend you do!
Btw, have you seen the promo for TVD and will you watch the premier this Thursday? It doesn't look like this season is going to be all that great :/ I'm only interested in Alaric and Tyler's storyline this season, but my expectations are low haha. On the other hand, I can't wait until Season 3 of Bates Motel.
Hey, it really has been a while since we talked. I watched Gotham and I liked it (except for the dramatic name drops), but Forever didn't look very interesting to me. I'm gonna watch TVD, but only because it may be the last season. The promo trailer wasn't anything special, but I liked the promo picture. There were some interesting bits about it (namely, no Damon + Elena).
I initially wasn't interested in Forever either but I ended up liking it a lot and think you will enjoy it too. It's also my favorite new series atm :)
I agree with everything you said about TVD. Overall, the promo picture looks nice, while the promo trailer was disappointing imo. Are you excited for The Originals? Mikael, Esther, Finn, and Kol have all returned. I'm definitely more interested in season 2 of TO now.
Yeah, TO is better than TVD now. I wanted Mikael to be brought back to life, but not the entire Mikaelson family. At least not yet, because that's rushing through their storylines... similar to how TVD did. But let's enjoy TO while its glory lasts :D
You watch GoT and TWD, right? Do you also watch AHS and/or BB? (American Horror Story and Breakig Bad, in case you don't know.)
And yes, I watch GoT, TWD, and AHS. I've also seen parts of BB whenever my brother watched it, but I haven't personally watched the series. I heard a lot of great reviews about it so I definitely should one day even though I know the ending haha.
I started BB during the summer. I planned to watch it very casually (because it didn't interest me much, but Lorax suggested it for me), but I turned out to absolutely love it. I'm almost done with the series now. If you like GoT, TWD and AHS a lot, I would definitely recommend BB for you.
Oh, and don't spoil the ending for me :P This is one of the only shows I've started after it finished and doesn't know how it ends :P
I saw you reverted my edits. Sorry if I did something wrong. I am currently working on the German Wikia Community for Bates Motel and I think interlanguage links are a very good way to promote both language versions of the wikias. What do you think?
Interlanguage links can link to other language versions of a wikia community which has the same topic. In this case de.batesmotel.wikia.com (see the language prefix? DE stands for German/Deutsch). So if someone finds one of those wikis, sees the interlanguage links and decides to continue reading in another language the same article is available, he can click on that link. For more information visit the help page about interlanguage links: Help:Interlanguage links.
If it is okay for you I'd like to continue linking from your English article pages to the German articles in the German Bates Hotel wikia, which is currently still small but interlanguage linking is one way to draw more attention to it. I will also continue to add interlanguage links to the German wikia so people find the Englisch Bates Motel wikia. In addition I am currently working to increase the content and set up a attractive main page so it looks way more inviting :)
Good idea, but most people do not visit the wikia via its main page but dive directly into the content – for example via Google search results etc. Adding the links to every page is not a big deal for me. Or do you have any good reason against adding interlanguage links? A lot of other Wikia communities are already doing it and there are a lot of reasons in favor of interlanguage links. You can read about it in this blog post on Community Central: User blog:Sannse/Guest Post - Your Wikia, Internationalized
Hey, I'm liking this season a lot, but I still like the first season more. So far, my favorite episode of season 2 is Meltdown. My favorite episodes of season 1 are The Truth, Midnight, and Ocean View. Which of your favorites (of season 1 and 2)?
Not that we know of. The reason for Bradley being written off was that the actress who plays her, Nicola Peltz, was busy with movies, namely Transformers 4. It's possible she'll come back, but it pretty much depends on the actress wanting to return or not.
