HEY! I just wanted to say I'm diggin the new style of the main page :D It's deadly! Danke Schon!SkulMan :D 20:32, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

More content on this page

I think this page needs more content, such as Characters, Areas, Items tab etc. Many other Wikis have them. Blogman12 18:10, June 5, 2011 (UTC)

I think the Featured article serves enough purpose for that kind of thing. Of course, a tab (or whatever they're called) like on some other wikis wouldn't hurt, but I've never liked them for some reason. I don't know what that reason is. I just simply don't like them. Manga (talkcontribs) 20:16, June 5, 2011 (UTC)


I think we should have a poll every month. I've changed the Poll today as the previous has been there for a while. Blogman12 19:24, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Agreed. --TDG (Talk) 00:24, July 7, 2011 (UTC)
yeah, my original intent was to change it up once it had gotten stale, I just couldn't think of any good polls. Kingbirdy 06:01, July 7, 2011 (UTC)


Uh, why is the Camp Half-Blood Role Playing Wiki affiliated with us? --TDG (Talk) 06:50, July 16, 2011 (UTC)

Blogman, Kingbirdy and I discussed it on Chat. We decided that since the Skulduggery Pleasant and Camp Half-Blood settings are similar and we're both wikis that it wouldn't be too out of place. I believe Kingbirdy was supposed to get them to add us next. Manga (talkcontribs) 07:31, July 16, 2011 (UTC)
Um, right. Go on chat now (for totally unrelated talkness :P)? --TDG (Talk) 07:32, July 16, 2011 (UTC)

I think we've picked up an ad...

I think Wikia has put an advert on the right side of the Main Page. Just want to check if that's showing up for anyone else before I move anything around for balance. Manga (talkcontribs) 14:08, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

I see it too. It disappears when you use the menu with "Characters", etc. on it. —Resident Devil 02:16, August 13, 2011 (UTC)

Poll ideas

Anybody got any ideas for the next poll? Manga (talkcontribs) 22:37, September 18, 2011 (UTC)

"Who do think will be the next Death Bringer?" --TDG.gif (Talk) 04:48, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
maybe just an opinions poll on Death Bringer. Kingbirdy 01:55, September 20, 2011 (UTC)

Changing biography stuff

I think that we should change the titles, e.g. "Playing With Fire" and "Dark Days", in the character biography (and possibly other pages such as the Irish Sanctuary) to events. A lot of Wikis have them. I know this could take a while changing all the events, but it's still an idea :P Blogman12 07:15, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Hm. That's a very good idea. Support.jpg SupportTDG.gif (Talk) 07:38, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
I think that would be good, although it might take a while to change all the layouts. Support.jpg SupportManga (talkcontribs) 17:04, January 16, 2012 (UTC)
Eventually it would finish. So can I start changing, or should we wait for Kingbirdy? Blogman12 19:33, January 16, 2012 (UTC)
No. His vote can't change the overall answer. I'm a little busy with other wikis and writiing, so I may only be able to change links.. --TDG.gif (Talk) 07:17, January 17, 2012 (UTC)
If this is what I think it is, then I agree. If it isn't what I think it is, well, I'm out-voted anyway. Kingbirdy 01:45, January 21, 2012 (UTC)
Hi guys. Do all the biography stuff stop at The Last Stand of Dead Men or The Dying of the Light? Because it's been a while since the books have been released, and I think it's time stuff has been updated here. Well, if you don't agree, feel free to ignore me. That's the one amazing thing about personal opinion: if you don't like it you can not give a damn. Eleonora Nyx (talk) 04:40, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
This is a conversation from 2012. Not only that, your question is unrelated to it. Answering your question, of course you can add content. I'll be here to make sure the formatting is consistent and to fix any problems that arise. --Dregran (talk | contribs) 01:21, February 11, 2016 (UTC)
I agree with OP completely we need to decide on a basic format for character pages.Johnddoe69 (talk) 21:51, June 25, 2017 (UTC)

Kingdom of the Wicked

The new book should have a link on the main page. Just write on the little plain cover of the book, Skuldggery Pleasant: Kingdom of the Wicked, to be released September 2012

We could do a countdown like we did with Death Bringer. Blogman12 11:28, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

We shouldn't do that. We should wait like we did with Death Bringer. Or maybe we should not make categories incorrectly. Dunno which. --TDG.gif (Talk) 02:59, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

Main page Grid? More than one line?

Yeah, KotW is behind the ad or the poll, depending if you have an ad blocker or not. :\
What to do? --TDG.gif (Talk) 12:11, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

Let me just log out, see what it looks like normally, then I'll fix it. Manga (talkcontribs) 17:41, May 25, 2012 (UTC)
Did a quick fix. I'll do a better one with the Lost Art stuff soon when I'm a bit more free.
If we can get it to look right, it might be worth sort-of dividing them per line based on each "trilogy". Might look a bit weird with KotW on it's own, however. Manga (talkcontribs) 17:49, May 25, 2012 (UTC)
I like the trilogy idea. Maybe we could add like a square rectangle and have Skulduggery 8 and Skulduggery 9 inside it, and it links to the page. True, it may not be the covers, but meh. Blogman12 18:33, May 25, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, that trilogy idea sounds great. Though, I think we should wait for the covers. --TDG.gif (Talk) 11:23, May 26, 2012 (UTC)

Wait. If we keep End of the World up there, we can have five books per line, which works. --TDG.gif (Talk) 06:27, May 29, 2012 (UTC)


What is it, exactly? I say we use this: [1]. I gather we have permission. It could do with a little tweaking, but that's easy. In favour?--TDG.gif (Talk) 06:08, May 31, 2012 (UTC)

I asked 'Birdy about it once. It's actually meant to be a hand, but using fire. Part of the problem is that the "hand" blends into the background, so it looks more like some randomy fire with holes in it. Manga (talkcontribs) 19:05, May 31, 2012 (UTC)
So can we change it to some awesome fire? --TDG.gif (Talk) 11:35, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
That's from the forums, right? If we have permission, then sure, provided that no one has any objections or other suggestions. Manga (talkcontribs) 23:47, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
*le summon Kiiyashi* And now we wait for Gen's approval... --TDG.gif (Talk) 10:35, June 3, 2012 (UTC)
it seems like there was talk earlier of using one of manga's emoticons. why not just do that? I think one of the skulduggery ones would look appreciable up there. Kingbirdy 01:35, June 7, 2012 (UTC)
I'd be willing to make one if you fancied it. Truth be told, I'm not entirely fond of using the forum's thingy. Manga (talkcontribs) 01:36, June 8, 2012 (UTC)
Gen is inactive on DevianArt too. :\
I vote Manga makes a cool fire thingy. Or something cooler. --TDG.gif (Talk) 23:39, June 9, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I should probably work on actually making that favicon now. On it. Totally. Manga (talkcontribs) 00:45, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Not Likely

Salutations capricious denonyms, why don't you preform reductio ad absurdum on this page?

Marino312 (talk) 19:00, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

Unless you're willing to explain what exactly you mean, could you not leave confusing messages like this one? --TDG.gif (Talk) 23:42, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

But of course!

Marino312 (talk) 16:33, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

New Book

Could We put the image of the The Maleficent Seven in the list of books section?

Marino312 (talk) 15:59, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

Although it's not released yet, I don't see why not. Just give me a bit to figure out how to properly balance the page. Three by three might look nice, but would it be too spacious on the side? Decisions. Manga (talkcontribs) 16:09, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
Thining about splititng them into three clickable tabs. "First Trilogy", "Second Trilogy", and "KotW and Others*. And then when the next book comes out, the last one becomes "Third Trilogy" and "Novellas". Gonna see if I can make the tabs look nicer first, though. Manga (talkcontribs) 16:48, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
You mean "EotW and others", right? o_O --TDG1-derp.gif (Talk) 01:19, December 12, 2012 (UTC)
Nope. Manga (talkcontribs) 02:31, December 21, 2012 (UTC)
Would the Novella section include the short stories? Only two have covers. (Gold,Babies.... & The Lost Art) The other three (Trick Or Treat, Geoffrey & Black Annis ) don't.

Marino312 (talk) 18:23, December 12, 2012 (UTC)

So far we can fit six books per line, but the trilogy idea is good. Look at the assassin's creed wiki's home page. It has an interesting tab idea. Anyway, we could do:

Bk 1 2 3 4 5 6
7 8 9 EotW t Ms


Short Stories

That would we six across two lines.

That's not including the stories that have no covers though which is why the assassins creed one looks good.Marino312 (talk) 17:40, December 18, 2012 (UTC)

With a little tweaking, this could work. Manga? What do you think of it? --TDG1-derp.gif (Talk) 04:40, December 19, 2012 (UTC)
I shall look into it, and report forthwith. Manga (talkcontribs) 01:47, December 21, 2012 (UTC)
Incidentally, while we can fit in six books per line, I think it would be better if we could lower that amount. The small size can look a bit unpleasing as the covers curently are. Theoretically, we could hold an infinite number of books per line. Manga (talkcontribs) 01:48, December 21, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, maybe four? It really depends on what short stories we want to include. --TDG1-derp.gif (Talk) 10:56, December 21, 2012 (UTC)

We could always just make more headings on the page, one for books, one for short stories/novellas below it? Kingbirdy 06:34, December 21, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, yeah, 'Birdy. Take the easy solution. Pfft. Manga (talkcontribs) 12:44, December 21, 2012 (UTC)

So has anybody thought of a solution yet? Marino312 (talk) 19:20, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

I agree with Mario's proposed layout. --TDG.gif (Talk) 05:49, March 22, 2013 (UTC)

You know, Tms has been out for a while & there is still no sign of it on the main page... Marino312 (talk) 17:01, April 20, 2013 (UTC)

Featured Article?

I was just wondering when anyone was planning on changing the featured article? I was on the nomination page and there hasnt been a vote since October '11 Come and have a go, if you think you're hard enough (talk) 18:16, April 11, 2013 (UTC)


Should we change the poll? Romulus Krefth (adept) (talk) 21:51, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

ThatDevilGuy normally takes care of that. I suppose he wouldn't mind us doing it, though. It would need to be The Dying of the Light themed.
