Dregran's Talk Page

Welcome to my Talk Page! Feel free to leave me a message about any of your site concerns, as well as anything relating to Skulduggery Forums. I'll answer as soon as possible!


Hi, welcome to Skulduggery Pleasant Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Dark Days page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Kingbirdy (Talk) 06:01, July 9, 2010

that sysops request

give it some time. I know you may like the sieres, but I can't make you a spsop because of it. Make more edits (100+), stick around for a while(at least a month), and try and get some new users here. I'd like to have a community up before I make a new admin. But if you need me to do some admin things, just tell me and I'd be happy to help! =) Kingbirdy 07:13, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

what's CBW? Kingbirdy 07:13, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

wow, that scene has really changed since i was in it. when I played with them they were just expensive knex-lego hybrids with unpronouncable names that no one really cared about. (no offense) [[User:Kingbirdy|Kingbirdy 07:13, July 9, 2010 (UTC)]]

China does use "symbol magic" but it is just a branch of adept as far as Mr. Landy has told us. I believe the same goes for Mr. Bliss.[[User:Kingbirdy| Kingbirdy 07:13, July 9, 2010 (UTC)]]

I did all but the part about the next and before in the series. why? Kingbirdy 07:13, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

Don't worry about language with me. I swear like a sailor =). And thanks. It's actually quite simple once you learn the markup code. Kingbirdy 07:13, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I finally got of my lazy, ah, posterior region and made a custom sig thanks to seeing yours. I've been meaning to forever. And it sucks your favorite character died. I don't realy have a favorite, but I like the Necromancy. Me and a friend who read the books spent well over a week arguing over what stephanie's necromancy item would be after we finished book 3. Kingbirdy 07:25, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

yes, I have read book 4. Ordered it over from the UK because they didn't seem to have them in the US. I am from a few other wikias, but I'm not an active user or anybody important. This is the only one I'm active or important on. BTW, you're quite high on the bionicle site. Are you an admin or something there? Kingbirdy 07:42, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

ah. well, I'm probably going to move on to other things for the night. if you need something, just let me know. Kingbirdy 07:55, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

Well I would change it, but I don't know how the hell to do that, so I suppose I wont. Nice meeting you too. Kingbirdy 08:00, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, I just found it and did it. Good night. Kingbirdy 08:05, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

check the sitenews on the main page. you just might like what you see. Kingbirdy 06:44, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Well, I'm probably not going to promote you to admin anytime soon now thanks to the merger, but I felt bad, so you now have rollback permissions. It's not much, but it's something. It lets you revert page's quicker. So if someone vandalised a page, you could revert it in one click as opposed to several. But don't worry, that doesn't mean I'm going to hold you accountable for all the vandalism that ever happens to the wiki =P Kingbirdy 07:04, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I cant remember what I did to the Diablerie page.

Blogman12 15:14, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

I know you've earner it too, but BLogman wants one to, and he has been more active, and we really cant have all 4 of the people here being sysops. If you can get at least 20 active people here, I'll see what I can do. (probably a vote) if we can get up to 50+, then maybe the both of you.

hi im a wiki con.... whatever that is anyway it wont let me create an account any help!!!!!

btw my ip adress is


Its fine. I did the same for a little while. Life is more important than the wiki. As for Vile, you'll need to do that yourself. I have cell-phone access only ATM, so not enough for heavy coding.

Another disambiguation idea

Sorry if Im becoming a nuisance...

I thought of making a template. It can say "Teleport me!", and then something like:

"You may be looking for the series, book or character of the same name."

Then we can change the biography template. I was thinking it could be something to do with Tesseract and his masks.

Blogman12 16:59, December 24, 2010 (UTC)


I'm back now. I was grounded. but dude, if we get enough people for you or blogman to be sysop, yall will be the first to know, I promise. Kingbirdy 22:22, November 28, 2010 (UTC)


sorry, i wont do it again, and you spelled badges wrong.

Dude, I'm diggin the pic by the way! :D I love Billy Ray ;)

Okidoke SkulMan :D 02:48, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

OK, thats good. And sorry for my mistake

Blogman12 11:59, January 1, 2011 (UTC)


dude, that really isnt someting you should have done yourself. First you should have toalked to me or manga about it, then if we agreed we would put it up to a vote. Plus, and no offense meant here, you dont have the aauthority to do that. I know I've said you will eventually become admin, but I meant that as the posistion just as much as the buttons. I think it might be a good idea, but it could hurt us at the same time. where on the one hand, we gain exposure to fans, possibly the largest group of them without derek blogging about us, but on the other hand we lose the wikia exposure, wich really helps and puts us high up on the search results. We are 9th on google for skulduggery pleasant. the forums arent on the front page. So can you get me in contact with the mod you talked to so I can straighten things out? Also, stop trying to get at admin. I swear when we get a good enough community to warrant it, you wil become admin, as I've told you before. I'd say before summer, you and Blogman will be admins, okay? so just wait. Kingbirdy 22:28, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

its cool

dude, its cool. relax. I'm not gonna ban you or anything. And to be fair, yeah, I'm not the most active, but keep in mind I have a life :). I dont think we really need to be under them, since they know about us already, and we would lose the exposure brought on by wikia. For now, lets just stay were we are, yeah? Kingbirdy 00:30, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

not quite what I meant. I meant I dont want us to be a subdomain if theirs (i.e. or something like that) I want us to stay on the wikia network. Now if they want to consider us partners and have links and the like, thats all cool. we can work that out easy. Kingbirdy 00:39, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

If its all the same to you, I think I'll talk to him. Whats his name again? Kingbirdy 01:09, January 2, 2011 (UTC)

have at it. I fiddled with it for almost an hour. if you can get it working, more power to you. Kingbirdy 09:57, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

i dont know, its just a figure of speech, it means something like 'good for you', but you would say it beforehand, like, 'if you can make a hole-in-one on this, more power to you.'. its nothing, really. maybe its just a regional thing. Kingbirdy 19:43, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

re: stuff

sure, go ahead. but if you're going to edit the manual of style, it helps to know how to spell Manual :) Kingbirdy 23:16, January 16, 2011 (UTC)

are you sure necromancy isnt its own magic? I've heard it said before, but never seen it backed up. if you can give me a page number or atleast a book chapter, I'd be happy to, but as far as I know, it's its own magic. (also, I probably screwed up the 'its' just then) (also also, do you know who that cranios guy was?) Kingbirdy 23:03, January 17, 2011 (UTC)

I dont see anything wrong with kiiyashi's pics. I feel it might not be the best idea to use the ring, bently, and revolver pics, as we can get real pics of the car and gun, and I dont think the ring is described much, so I might switch those pictures out.

OK, should have realised myself though.

Blogman12 10:14, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Scepter and Sceptre are both correct, but it varies by location, I wasn't going to change them at first, but Firefox considered it wrong. I'll leave that spelling as it is then.
~ Kiiyashi, The Forum Mod 03:37, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Well, Irish. But that won't make much of a difference, I shall remember to use Sceptre though.
~ Kiiyashi, The Forum Mod 03:57, January 30, 2011 (UTC)


its just redirects. What harm do redirects do? just leave them be. the only reason there are redirects is if they are needed. unless they arent linked to at all? I cant be bothered to look, lots of stuff to do. also, why protect the movie page? Kingbirdy 23:23, January 30, 2011 (UTC)


I believe I found the two guys you were talking about. I banned the guy who did the Caelan stuff for a year, and the guy who put false info in the movie page for a couple weeks. If you see anyone doing stuff, let me know! I'd be happy to ban them if they're doing something wrong. Kingbirdy 01:12, February 3, 2011 (UTC)


I never meant to do that. I don't even know how it happened. :S sorry about that

Blogman12 07:02, February 3, 2011 (UTC)


Dude I'm sorry :D Wasn't sure which People it meant! Also I was tired and bored so.... Again Sowwi! :) Danke Schon for telling me! SkulMan :D 19:41, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

MOS and Misc

you can do the MOS whenever you feel like it. Its not like people really read it, anyway :). Also, about your adminship, the merger with the forums should bump up the member count where I can justify giving you an adminship. And I will be giving it to you, as you have more expereience and seem to care more about the wiki in genral than edit counts. but that is no garuntee that the merger will bring the numbers. On a completey unrelated note, isnt our new background awesome? Kingbirdy 23:32, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

RE: IP Vandalism

Found it. It was from Kingbirdy's very first blog, much to my chagrin when looking for it. What an interesting comment... Okay, I'm going to ban the IP. Unless me or Kingbirdy have already banned him somehow. Manga Maniac 21:42, February 15, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I've protected Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain infinitely, and also Skulduggery Pleasant 6 until 2nd April. Doing the movie later, need to go. Manga Maniac 13:12, February 16, 2011 (UTC)

Derek and the Wiki

I mentioned it, but he didn't say anything about it. I can ask him to visit, and to put it on his website/blog. That would get us new members. Any questions you want to ask him? Blogman12 19:54, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Forums

I'm not entirely sure exactly what our position to do with the forums is. However, in order to not induce any vengeful wrath, I've included a link to them in the Main Page. Well, actually I did that in order to balance out the sides because of the new poll, but stopping any vengeful wrath is a nice bonus. Manga Maniac 02:08, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

I will not conform to your Nazi signature style! I am a free man!!! Manga Maniac 10:32, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
And on that note, what do you think of my new sig? Manga (talkcontribs) 20:57, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

HEY! just here to say I like Bullet for my Valentine as well! :D I haven't talked to you in ages so HELLO! XD *insert nerdy wave*


Done. Manga (talkcontribs) 10:02, February 25, 2011 (UTC)

I love your choice in music! :D None of my friends like Muse, My Chemical Romance or The Killers as much as me so Kudos to you! I also love Green Day(<3), KoRn and Evanescene! :D

Haha I know what's it like to be obsessed with a band!! My friend has gotten me hooked on S.O.A.D and I'm seriously obsessed :) SkulMan :D 13:51, February 26, 2011 (UTC)


Thats pretty sweet! I cant see it in entertainment, though... Also, why is the sydney opera house in the background?! Kingbirdy 00:30, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

Nah, I figured it out. it was just adblock. Kingbirdy 23:36, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

Vals birthday

OK then. The book have their set dates as well now. Blogman12 09:56, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Congrats! You earned it Blogman12 10:06, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Well... I only copied the background and changed the colour to me suiting :) Blogman12 17:32, April 5, 2011 (UTC)


you still on for the podcast? If so, i was thinking of having it next weekend. would that be cool? Kingbirdy 02:13, April 8, 2011 (UTC)

I know, but I figured if you could be on then, we could work out specific times. Kingbirdy 02:07, April 9, 2011 (UTC)

He is just on to help with a script. also, we have malice and possibly meepnessness. and volcano god will be joining us second episode, as she is out of town on a trip to france that weekend. Kingbirdy 01:41, April 10, 2011 (UTC)

what time is good for you? I live in america, EST. I can probably operate anywhere between noon and 3am EST, saturday (well, bit of sunday, too, I suppose). If any time in there works, let me know! Kingbirdy 00:42, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Book 6

I'll ask him. But on hs blog he said he's been ill, so it might take a while. I've found a synposis for it as well, so it's more and more likely. Blogman12 09:44, April 14, 2011 (UTC)


sneaky little bugger XD. But yeah, I thought about it, but I realised there was no need. It summer, so I'll be on more, plus I should have talked to manga first, and anyway, nothing is happening on the wiki till the new book comes out. Kingbirdy 15:52, June 8, 2011 (UTC)

RE: The Forums

That is awesome. Now we just need to figure out something to announce. Manga (talkcontribs) 17:14, June 27, 2011 (UTC)


If you want to apply it to a whole wiki, add this to MediaWiki:Common.js or MediaWiki:Wikia.js:

function UserContribsMenuItem() {
	$('ul.AccountNavigation li:first-child ul.subnav li:first-child').after('<li><a href="/wiki/Special:Contributions/'+ encodeURIComponent (wgUserName) +'">My contributions</a></li>');

For yourself only, add it to User:ThatDevilGuy/wikia.js.

Hope that helps. Manga (talkcontribs) 15:50, July 11, 2011 (UTC)

Out of curiosity, where are you using this code? Manga (talkcontribs) 20:28, July 13, 2011 (UTC)


Nice wiki you're running there. Hope it all continues to go swell. Could you make a comment here? It's about getting some custom namesaces and I want to wrap it up quickly. Manga (talkcontribs) 22:55, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, and your bot's up. Manga (talkcontribs) 23:00, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

RE: That monobook button...

We now have a purge button. Manga (talkcontribs) 09:52, July 25, 2011 (UTC)


Yup. Hold on, I'll just go and get it... Manga (talkcontribs) 10:02, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Put the following in MediaWiki:Common.js:
// BEGIN JavaScript title rewrite -- jQuery version and new wikia skin fixes by Grunny
function rewriteTitle() {
	if( typeof( window.SKIP_TITLE_REWRITE ) != 'undefined' && window.SKIP_TITLE_REWRITE ) {
	if( $('#title-meta').length == 0 ) {
	var newTitle = $('#title-meta').html();
	if( skin == "oasis" ) {
		$('header.WikiaPageHeader > h1').html('<div id="title-meta" style="display: inline;">' + newTitle + '</div>');
		$('header.WikiaPageHeader > h1').attr('style','text-align:' + $('#title-align').html() + ';');
	} else {
		$('.firstHeading').html('<div id="title-meta" style="display: inline;">' + newTitle + '</div>');
		$('.firstHeading').attr('style','text-align:' + $('#title-align').html() + ';');
// END JavaScript title rewrite
And the following in MediaWiki:Wikia.css
/* Fix for rewrite title */
#title-meta i { font-style: italic !important; }
I think with this CSS you can italicise titles by just going {{DISPLAYTITLE:''*Insert Title Here*''}}, but if you want you can use the Title template. Manga (talkcontribs) 10:09, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
Yes. Manga (talkcontribs) 13:01, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

SP Forums

Is the Skulduggery Forums loading for you? All I'm getting is a "Problem loading page". Manga (talkcontribs) 19:48, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Categories

Do you use the Rich Text Editor? Manga (talkcontribs) 10:59, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

The RTE is the thing that puts the words in bold when you higlight them and click B, puts them in italics, underlines them, turns links blue, and makes templates a green puzzle piece. It can occasionally mess up stuff and do something stupid, like randomly break all the sections. Manga (talkcontribs) 10:12, September 2, 2011 (UTC)
You'd have to disable it and CategorySelect on Special:Preferences. Be warned, it can be quite a shock if you're not used to wikicoding (though I wouldn't be surprised if you were used to it). As for my guess, chickens. Manga (talkcontribs) 10:33, September 2, 2011 (UTC)
On the subject of editors, the New Editor that I enabled will be going sitewide soon. Manga (talkcontribs) 10:47, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Hi .3.

Thanks. I hope this doesn't clog up space on your talk page or anything. I edited the bit on 'Playing with Fire' about Billy-Ray Sanugine. (I hope thats how you spell it?), just because he is my favorite character, apart from perhaps, Desmond Edgely. Sparrowfang 06:45, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry I couldn't join you on chat. I seem to never be on when you are. Anyway, this is the greatest website ever. I have just finnished the secocnd Skulduggery Pleasent and I am about to read the third. P.S. Your signature is really cool. How do you make a signature? Yours truly, Sparrowfang 10:24, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

Add a Page stuff

No, sorry. Might be worthing asking here, usually someone has the answer. Sounds like the sort of thing that would have to be personal use-only, though. Manga (talkcontribs) 17:17, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Custom namespaces

You have to ask Wikia staff for it. You'll probably want to read this first, though.

By the way, you really need to get into the habit of using sections on user talk pages. Always neater, if you ask me. Manga (talkcontribs) 14:53, September 21, 2011 (UTC)

You can still switch to the Monobook skin if you want. And, with the right code, you can turn Monobook into a pseudo-Vector (Vector = Wikipedia's skin). Manga (talkcontribs) 22:17, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Help!

Did you just title the section on my talk page? OhgodI'msoproudofyou! *hug*

Anyway, do you know when the thing broke? Manga (talkcontribs) 20:52, November 17, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, that strange space in the template seems to be important for unknown reasons. Template seems to be fixed on my end. Manga (talkcontribs) 18:01, November 26, 2011 (UTC)
It was still turning up broke on my end. So either it was very coincedentally timed, or my edit cleared the cache and I can claim credit anyway. So there. Manga (talkcontribs) 10:21, November 27, 2011 (UTC)


Could you go and make a vote on the Featured article nomination place please? We're about 3 months behind, and the two top ones are tied. Manga (talkcontribs) 18:49, November 27, 2011 (UTC)

Skul Forums

I haven't been able to access the forums for the past few days, is it the same for you? Manga (talkcontribs) 23:50, December 4, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it's the database thingy. If you have the time, you ask him on MSN. But don't concern yourself over it, I'm sure things will work themselves out. For us, at least. Manga (talkcontribs) 17:59, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
(EDIT) You might be interested in checking this out. Some of the forums' members have ended up there, and they've been talking to us about an affiliation and maybe getting us our own domain away from Wikia. Certainly an interesting offer, at the least. Manga (talkcontribs) 18:15, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
I didn't get any e-mail, but it could've got lodged in my spam folder - and frankly, I don't want to look in there unless I have to. So many strange people seem to think I want to enlarge my... Anyhow, yeah, moving Wikia is a very bumpy thing. My main problem is that it'd involve leaving a shadow copy of the wiki behind (I still hold grudges against Wikia solely because of that policy), and might be viewed as breaking off the alliance with the Skulduggery Forums (what with the other site having their own forums). Still though, leaving Wikia presents so many options it's amazing. Different skins, the ability to add entirely new features, and so on. Manga (talkcontribs) 22:48, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
See, if we refuse, they're going to make their own wiki anyway. And put me in charge, because I said okay then (I'd still be on both wikis equally, though, if it does happen). What I really hope for is for them to replace their forums with the ones we're with, but it seems unlikely. They're a pretty well-established German site with dreams of an internation hub site, but the English-speaking world has all the important bases already, and it's best not to disrupt what works since it works. Manga (talkcontribs) 23:12, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
(EDIT) I should say that they also contacted Birdy, and he was not supportive of the idea if they've told me correctly. Not vehemently so, but still not supportive of it. Manga (talkcontribs) 23:17, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
Nah, I like the current ones better, to be honest. Manga (talkcontribs) 23:18, December 6, 2011 (UTC)

I like the idea of moving, but the baggage it carries outside of the wiki messes it up. But, since they're making their own wiki if we refuse, I may as well be in charge of that one in addition to being an admin here, if only to stop both sides from copy/pasting eachother to death. Also, I get the feeling if they start their own wiki they'll not get many native speakers and I can't stand to see grammar rules broke. Manga (talkcontribs) 23:52, December 6, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Death Bringer

Darkskull19 08:28, January 23, 2012 (UTC)

hmm.... I think it's pretty fair to merge Skul and Vile's page you know, but it may be some kind of a spoiler for anyone who hasn't read the DB, like me for instance when I first joined the wiki ;) A lot from my school mates and maybe others started visiting this wiki daily since I'm the head of a fan club in the school myself and I don't wanna praise myself but Skul became a lot more popular ^^ And a lot of them hadn't read them yet, they're just curious you know... I'm pretty new at this editing thing so it's your call ;)


How did you make your "Resident Devil" signature shaded?

Blacksworn 00:00, January 30, 2012 (UTC)

P.S: Awesome! I posted at 00:00 exactly!


How does this look?

Swarm of Darkness 23:03, January 31, 2012 (UTC)

Awesome! Thanks for showing me the code.

Swarm of Darkness 08:57, February 1, 2012 (UTC)

Uploading Troubles

I was trying to upload a new file, but it said to me "File extension does not match MIME type". Do you know what that means and/or how to fix it?

SP Game

I'm making up a Skulduggery Pleasant game, could I please use This as a base for it?

Thanks! I'll show you the end result :)

The End

You're Australian, right? Someone's added to The End Of The World that Hayley and Tane don't appear in it, and I'm English so I can't check. Manga (talkcontribs) 01:34, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

why cant we?

so why is it exactly we cant work with Kingbirdy 20:48, March 12, 2012 (UTC)

Fan art

Why do you keep deleting the art that I placed on the Lord Vile and Faceless Ones pages? I have noticed that this wiki does allow fan art on pages such as this,this and and this.DrNefarious 09:05, May 9, 2012 (UTC)

Testing out the auto-refresher in Recent Changes

Nothing to see here, move along. Manga (talkcontribs) 11:51, May 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hi there. I was just going apologize for the blog thing, I understand. I actually meant that I abandoned the blog available in here, not this site. I know I shouldn't have posted something like that. Sorry. Darkskull19 (talk) 06:10, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Hey ThatDevilGuy,

Are you a Skulduggery fan too?

I am a huge fan and cannot wait for Kingdom of the Wicked!


Ryuk =)

Are you the same person I think you are? 08:57, July 24, 2012 (UTC)

I am very angry with you for deleting everything Marino312 (talk) 17:25, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

u faggggggggggg, y did u delete my page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????????????????????????

Biography and stuff

How comes no one ever calls me a fag? Feeling a little left out here.

Anyway, the block template looks nice enough. I'll be honest here, though, I'm probably going to forget to use it if I see an IP just randomly replacing words with "penis".

Personally, this would probably be worth discussion, I'd go with event titles. I would then merge "In Books" and "History" together (into one big "Biography" or "History" section) and then make everything in the section past-tense. The subsections would still go roughly by-book, though, simply because each book happens in a similar timeframe. Manga (talkcontribs) 15:59, November 22, 2012 (UTC)

Oh yeah, and I think as it is the Biography section's a bit too beefy. It basically contains the whole article in it. Manga (talkcontribs) 16:02, November 22, 2012 (UTC)
When the Biography section is that big, it becomes redudant to the actual name of the article. Although admittedly it does separate the Quotes section and stuff, which is nice. Still overall against it, however. Aside from that, they're nice. "Description" might be a bit redundant to the lead, but I lack any real strong feelings. Relationships will be a bit of work to implement, but then again so was the idea of even making an article.

What is Myosotis Terra? I know What Could Have Been & Just Another Friday Night are part of The End of the World (with the latter being exclusive to Oceania. But what is this other one?

Marino312 (talk) 18:43, December 12, 2012 (UTC)

I found out what Myosotis Terra is. Do you want to add it to the list of books infobox? It is only in another language so I don't know if you want to count it or not. Marino312 (talk) 20:19, December 18, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for helping edit the Black Annis page :) Im kinda new to the website so i havent really got the ropes of how to make a proper page like perfect. Cheers. 16:19, April 7, 2013 (UTC) 

Hi ThatDevilGuy,

My name is LunaCain7, I'm very new to Wikia and none of this hardly makes sense. I added a few pictures the other day and I've noticed they've been deleted and I'm sorry if I've done something wrong. I'm just curious to know what I've mucked up there. Please get back to me when you can.

Thank you, Luna Cain7.

Hi ThatDevilGuy,

Thanks so much for answering, it's good to hear from you. No worries, Luna Cain7.

Chinith and Other Pairings

So I was surfing the Pleasant Series FanFiction Archive Skulduggery Pleasant Series FanFiction Archive last night (which is really good, I would seriously recommend checking it out if you haven't already). And I came across Chinith.

For those of you who don't know, Chinith is an unoffical term coined by fans to name a pairing between China Sorrows and Tanith Low. Admittedly a personal favorite of mine called Be Still.

Anyway, as good as it was, it made me wonder why there weren't any such pairings mentioned in - The Skulduggery Pleasant Wiki Skulpedia. I personally believe that Chinith and other fan pairings should be added.

Anyway, the main point of this messenge is to see what you all think of Chinith.

What's you're opinion? 02:33, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

Fact or Fiction?

I'm a big fan of Springheeled Jack and I was wondering if it was possible that he might actually be the actual Jack - Wikipedia Spring-heeled Jackcreature that terrorized London/Liverpool from 1837 and (currently) 2012.

So far, Derek Landy hasn't gone into Springheeled Jack's history, yet. So it's entirely possible that they might be one and the same.

What do you think? 03:01, June 8, 2013 (UTC)


Could we update the Books & Short Stories headings of the Real Life section?

Last Stand of Dead Men

Myosotis Terra

Trick or Treat

The Button

The Maleficent Seven

all need to be included. Also, The End of The World is more a novella than a short story. Either create another heading for that & TMS or just add them under Books.

Shall I do a blog post saying no adding information about book 8 until official date? And if they want to discuss it go to Skulduggery Forums? Blogman12 10:33, August 26, 2013 (UTC)


There is an interview with Derek Landy here:

Remember he said he would be a character in the future? Well I think more seems to be going on:

Q:Your characters have several names each. Why is that?

A:In my books everyone has three names – the name you’re given, the name you take, and your true name, the secret name you’ll never know. I have actually taken a sorcerer name, and I make an appearance in the books. I’m just not telling anyone who I am. That way I can do outrageous things and no one can blame me for it...

Marino312 (talk) 15:25, August 30, 2013 (UTC)


Since the Short story collection now has a cover, could you add it to the main page & the book's page?

Also, the template for Appearances still hasn't been updated. It needs a lot of mentioned only pictures.

Marino312 (talk) 11:39, March 29, 2014 (UTC)


Hi, I saw your reply on my talk page. Are there any tasks on this wiki that need to be done that I could help with?

Marino312 (talk) 14:45, April 2, 2014 (UTC)

why did you delete the "The Dying of the Light" page? Pippinstark (talk) 15:15, April 20, 2014 (UTC)

My Task

I will do what you asked in the Character Templates with pleasure.

Also, I noticed that you wanted another bureaucrat in the absence of the retiree. If that person retires, does that mean you would need a new administrator? (Hint, Hint!) I have a lot of experience with Wiki Markup Language & would be able to all the tricky coding sections like in the Appearances Page. Of course, all of that sort of thing requires Administrator access. Have I not proved my loyalty to this Wiki on countless occasions?

Marino312 (talk) 16:15, May 8, 2014 (UTC)

Armageddon Outta Here

Thanks for giving me my new powers! The first thing I will do with my new-found powers will be to add Myosotis Terra to the list of short stories in the template {{SPSeries}} . Anyway, I was thinking about the upcoming story collection. Should we make a character template for that book that would have a list for every short story? Example:

Or even (the code needs a little perfecting, the following is just an idea):

If we went with this idea, we would also need to figure out where it would go in the List of Characters Page. Would it be placed before the first book? Or Should we just add a section for each individual short story? User:Marino312 (talk) 12:03, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

I'm around-ish

Hey TDG, how you been? 

I'm always telling myself I'll be back, I'll be back but never got round to it, especially May/June exam season. But I promise I'll be back by the end of June! Blogman12 18:23, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

That's good! And I've always just been silently looking at the Wiki, telling myself I'll edit soon :P But I will start again soon! Blogman12 06:44, May 19, 2014 (UTC)

Armageddon Collection

I saw your message. Specifying which short story is a good idea. What about category pages? We have categories for Trick or Treat and The End of the World but not the other stories. Maybe we could have both a category for Armageddon-Outta-Here and the individual story?

Since The End of the World was once a separate book, should we let it keep its own Appearance template? Also, should we keep in on the front page? I think we should as, assuming book 9 will be the last in this series, it rounds off the front page with 5 books on each row (See Here). If it was removed, there would be a gap at the bottom. Marino312 (talk) 17:47, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

Main Page

What do you think of didviding the books up into the trilogies, based on the words of Derek Landy?

Test 2

Marino312 (talk) 18:04, May 22, 2014 (UTC)


I considered joining the forums for a while now but felt that I had missed the boat somehow. Is the title you receive for being a Staff Member here automatic or do I have to specify it in the settings? (Or ask an Administrator there?)

Marino312 (talk) 10:36, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

I created an account:Here

Marino312 (talk) 19:13, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

Once again, I took your advice and went to the New Members Section. I hope all goes well!

Fanmade Characters

I noticed that the template for characters created by a non-Derek Landy source has been removed. Was this deliberate or are the templated going to be replaced? I recall a few months ago that users were adding information that wasn't mentioned in the books. This would be fine if they could get Derek to confirm it on social media or something (like when he mentioned how Crenga reproduce), but otherwise, they could be adding useless info. Marino312 (talk) 15:58, June 14, 2014 (UTC)


I'm not really sure as to whom I should leave this message with, but as you are an admin, you are the lucky winner! *bells ring and confetti comes out of nowhere*

Anyway, I just wanted to formally introduce myself to the staff (or, a member of one but x3) and offer my (kind of) services.

I am a fan of Skulduggery Pleasant, having first learned about it from this wiki! As such, seeing as how I have recently decided to join, I figured I could pay you guys/the wiki back with what I believe to be decent coding skills! I can work on templates/random bits of coding for you/the wiki if you'd like me too and, though I understand you would want to get to know me better for agreeing to this, if given temporary sysop rights, I can add some cool things onto the wiki's JS/CSS pages to make it look a lot cooler! (not that it isn't cool already, but x3)

If you don't want me to do any of the, that's fine, I'm just happy to help a wiki that brought a really big book series into my life!

Anyway, I hope you have a good day/night and I hope to hear from you or another member of the staff soon! Thanks for your time! Bloody18 02:46, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

Of course! I'm the admin of another wiki, so I understand :)

I can't do much with CSS and/or JS, but I do have a friend who is in the middle of teaching me. However, I can still do thinks like change the "You have a message!" box link thing (I could make it say something like the Head Mage/Council needs you or something similar), I can change the names of the Admin/Rollbacker/Banned/B'Crat tags on your user name bubbles (For instance I could make banned people say Faceless One and you/other staff Adepts/Elementals), and I can also change things on the chat feature (like the name of PM's, the actual name of the Chat (I could call it Haggard or something like that), the thing it says when someone is kicked/banned/leaves, and stuff like that). Sorry for this wall of text x3

As for coding, I can make just about anything. I made just about all of the templates on my home wiki, I Love Writing Wiki. I can make boxes and borders, colors and fonts (Though I use a Chromebook and I can't see fonts, I know how to add them), and I can make the text big and small.

If you need any specific examples I can give you links, but they'd all be from ILWW x3

Thanks for your time! Bloody18 14:00, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

I can also code (example 1example 2example 3), it's just on the wiki's that I'm on, coding like that isn't all that nessicary, so I mainly do WikiMedia stuff.

And aside from the no-fonts-showing-up thing, I really like my Chromebooks (I have two of them x3) Bloody18 18:03, July 20, 2014 (UTC)


Don't worry about being inactive, I know what it's like to juggle multiple websites and real life at once! If you think it's a good idea, you could make me a b'crat in your absence. It would really only be for the chance that other users show up that could be promoted.

Adding new information from Armageddon Outta Here and Theatre of Shadows is going well and I still hope to meet the late August deadline of having the wiki in a good state in terms of grammar, tense and latest info. However, making sure all pages follow the same style will take a little bit longer. (A recurring problem is usage of the headings: Biography, History, In Books, Description/Personality etc.)

If you look at the list of wanted pages, you'll notice that some pages that we no longer need are still there. I believe the reason is because they were once in the character templates. For some reason, the cache doesn't refresh as much when a red link page was in a template. (Mr. Ping, Liam Delaney and others were all renamed; their old names were in the templates long enough to be registered as wanted pages).****

While this isn't really important, I am just worried that somebody will mistake it for a page we actually need. Thankfully, I check every page in the Wiki Activity/Recent Changes so I don't miss much!

****Having read back over what I just typed, I realised that the above is difficult to understand in writing so I hope you get my meaning!

Bye for now,

Marino312 (talk) 21:09, August 4, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I understand now and will try to edit any pages that haven't been edited before the templates were updated.

Yep, your idea for AOH sounds good; however, it seems that there will be a new short story released to Theatre of Shadows participants at the end of the event anyway, so we may have to find an image to represent that (hopefully, there will be cover art with the story).

I was thinking, could we find out if photographs will be taken on the day? We would then have more canonical pictures to add to this site.

One more thing: Continuing on from what I said yesterday, I would like your opinion on layout of biographies.

Some articles (like Erskine Ravel) do the following:

Across a Dark Plain
The Council Election

Whereas others do something like this:

In Books
Last Stand Of Dead Men


Do you have any particular preference for one style over the other? The second seems to be more common and more in line with the manual of style.

Literature footer

Hi, Dregran!

The Skullduggery Pleasant wiki was included in the now-retired Book wiki footer. A new paranormal/horror literature footer has been created, and I was wondering if I could place it on the main page, since this site meets all the new requirements for inclusion.

Best regards,

Raylan13@fandom (talk) 21:11, February 3, 2017 (UTC)

Derek Landy has given new info about SPX (Title and cover have been revealed) and I want to update the page on the wiki but it won't let me. Can you help fix it?

Person with person (talk) 17:48, February 10, 2017 (UTC)

Hey! You've got a cool page.

Did I happen to delete a blog page about Skulduggery facts? I believe I mistakenly thought it was an article and may have deleted it. I apologise profusely if I did. UnpleasantIE (talk) 14:31, January 19, 2020 (UTC)
