  • Hey JoseChung! I just wanted to give you a heads up that we will be temporarily removing the X-Files app promo banner in the right rail on the main page. We're removing it because of a minor technical issue and are hoping to have them restored in a week or so. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about this!

  • Can you create a separate page for him please as he is part of The X-Files universe.

    Thanks

    • Sorry, allow me to explain my reasonings more clearly. Lone Gunmen is a specific spin off from the X Files, so yes, naturally is included here. As for Millenium, there were already interweaving links (such as the character of Jose Chung) to the X Files before the main characters appeared themselves. Likewise Munch has a page here on the X Files Wiki because he himself appears in the series. They are validated by their appearances within the X Files itself, which is where I consider the line should be drawn.

      If the claim that Carter allowed the use of Mulder's name can be verified, then I don't see why there can't be an out of universe page for the series as a whole. Perhaps even a page which lists all the shows with connections to the X Files, similar to the descendants page. There are countless other series with connections, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Spike also smokes Morley cigarettes), but aren't included here because it is another series linking to the X files, not the X files linking to them.

      What I don't agree with is adding specific articles for characters etc from series with only the smallest of links, and which didn't appear in the X Files. Munch may prove that Law and Order exists in the same fictional universe, but that doesn't mean we add pages for everything about that series. Harper did not appear in the series, so shouldn't have a page here.

    • A connections page?  The references might be that already or is very similar and we would need to figure out a line separating them.  Some of the more interesting pages I added were things like "Descendants of the X-Files" or "References to the X-Files" since most of this wikia is about the episodes themselves and so on.  I wanted some more entertaining pages I guess.  Some ideas being rather silly like "Injury Tally" (a page that counts the number of times Scully and Mulder have been shot, number of times they died, and so forth [I swear Doggett was run over by a car at least twice if not more in only 2 seasons]).  Just stuff to make this wikia kind of strange.  Maybe format pages more creatively.  But generally I don't have the time to do as much anymore so I imagine it will be up you new rising editors to do what you want, fill in the blanks and move the wikia in whatever direction you care to move it. 

      And with Chance Harper I don't know.  I was watching some Strange Luck episodes today.  It's an okay show but it is only loosely connected to the X-Files so ultimately it isn't a priority.  Many pages for the X-Files itself continue to have no summaries of any kind.  Older episodes and so on.  Make a minor Strange Luck page if you want to look into it some and gather images and info on the show.  I usually find myself promising to be the one doing it but it leave it to you, LostFan.  But MadeIndescribable is right, he shouldn't have a page. 

      I'm going to throw an edit on something.  I try to do that once a day at least.  I have enough time for that at least.

    • Well I know how much Johnny Depp loves wearing a hat in his films so I think Kolchak will happen.  Ha!

      True, but if the movie is made I hope they keep Kolchak's personality. I'm also curious if the movie would focus more on the dark tones of the tv movies or go for the dark, but more fun tv series tone.

  • Hey are you still around. I am trying to get a community spotlight and could use some help.

    • Right, so concentrate on the under 300 byte ones.  There's so much to do.  I still haven't done all those summaries.  In time it will all get done.  I should just do it incrementally.

    • What is your take on the ranks?  I think they are useless.  People aren't going to click those links.  Corporal, commander, master sergeant, etc. could all go.  We should delete them all (though remove any links to their pages.)

  • I have updated the season pages a bit and only three of them have a plot summery. You did a great job with episode summaries could you write summaries for the seasons.

    • Did season 2.  I don't know about what I did.  I told all the big reveals and mysteries in a fairly condensed way but it is still very lengthy.  Either that is the way to go with all that included so the summaries explain all the bizarre stuff OR I should reduce it down to almost nothing so that they are very simple summaries that tell almost nothing.

    • It's perfect. 4-5 paragraphs is exactly what I had in mind. Great job. I know season 1 has one already but could you expand that one a little.

  • Hey Jose. There is a lot of work to be done that requires admin rights and it will take forever to inform you or KLessard about all of it and wait for it to get done. Can you restore my admin status.

    • Fixed.  It took me a while to figure out how to do it.  I've been gone so long I can't remember how to get into the admin dashboard.

    As part of our effort to connect fans with the entertainment they love, we are working with sponsors and partners to place certain content on fan communities. This content could be, for example, trailers or behind-the-scenes videos and would live in a prominent place on all of the pages of the X-files community. The placement is temporary (~2-4 weeks) and is only done with admin consent. This is a great way to get content that is relevant and interesting to existing fans as well as drive new fans to your Wikia community! Here is an example http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Borderlands_Wiki of what this could possibly look like. What do you think?

    • Yeah I would like that.  I started the "References to the X-Files" page to try and have some video content showing those references but had to walk a fine line.  How would copyright play into having behind-the-scenes content and so forth?  Is Wikia getting some legal rights to show certain things OR using fair use?

      Temporary placement of material by non-admin members?  That would be fine.  I am fine with 99% of changes.  It is the 1% of vandalism that I watch for and rollback.

      Wikia would have full legal rights/permission for any assets included in this program. :)

    • Would this include brief scenes from the X-Files?  I had always hoped to be able to show a 1-2 minute scene for major characters on their pages.  Or their actor pages.

    Hey there! Now that the new series is for sure a go, I was wondering if you had any plans for the wiki yet in order to accommodate it. I was kind of thinking the main page could use a little refreshing, and I'd love to create some custom headers with the classic X-Files typewriter font. What do you think? Have you considered a visual character / content portal for the main page? Just checking in, as there will definitely be an increase in traffic here the closer we get to the premiere of the new series. Let me know where you're at with these ideas, and maybe I can work with you on some or all of them. Can't wait to see what's in store! :)

      I would think the right side would be best, since there is so much unused space. Either below the series image links, or in place of them if they are moved- or removed. Also might not be a bad idea to join the Sci-fi Alliance - as seen here, esp. since as I said there is plenty of room on that right side.

    • I'm thinking that they should be removed.  The links in the box go other places then the three on the side which seem to go to series overviews.  We could either drop them entirely without doing anything because people probably don't want series overviews when they come here (they probably want to look up a character or an episode or whatever) OR we could just drop them but make the new titles in the box links to those overviews.  Easy to do. 

      I suppose we should join the Sci-fi Alliance.  I'm surprised there aren't more alliances though.  If there was a Horror Alliance, it would belong there.  Might as well join I guess.
