Hey. I see you're reworking some Header templates and was wondering if you'd wanna share your process and assets? Maybe we could discuss some design aspects, and I've considered trying to redo some of the film logos for some time now. On that note, or rather, a completely different one, what would you think of setting up a Discord for the wiki? This is a bit unweildy for me as i'm on mobile at the moment, but... Uh... Yeah.
Yeah, I've been meaning to get around to it for ages now and bring all my old material into conformity with the new, more compact sizes. Make a bit more room on the header boxes etc. I've just finished with the films, a few big video games and all the main arc books. I think I'll take a nap now. We'll have to arrange for a repository of assets, perhaps Discord might work nicely.
I hope you are well. It occured to me that the main poll on the Wiki hasn't been updated for a while and I was wondering whether you would support creating a new one, perhaps integrating a Danny Boyle-themed question to keep it topical? Let me know your thoughts and any suggestions you may have, no rush though!
I saw that you mentioned that General Orlov appeared in the role-play James Bond 007. As I am currently editing Octopussy's character pages on the French wiki, I was wondering if you could tell me about the role of Orlov in this game. Otherwise, do the other characters of Octopussy like Kamal Khan, Gobinda ... also appear in this game?
He has quite a major role, he survives the events of Octopussy and re-establishes SMERSH (which had been long defunct). It even establishes a first name for him, from what I recall. Not sure about Khan, Gobinda etc. I believe they appeared in the RPG adaptation of Octopussy, but I'll have to confirm that from the documents.
Mmh ... That's very interesting. It would be really great if we could know the first name of Orlov. Thanks for these informations. Otherwise I went to the game page on this wiki and I noticed that Anya Amasova was quoted. Does she also appear in this game?
Yeah, there are modules sold separately loosely following a number of the films. I'm torn on what to do with some of the characters though - there are notable differences in them, although I'm unsure as to whether they merit their own pages or not.
You mean there are differences between the characters of the movies and those of the game ? I think the question is still worth asking but I can not really help you because I do not have the lucky to have this game. For my part, I already find very well what you are doing on the page of Kamal Khan (having mentioned his appearance in the game with information). This could be done on all the other pages of the characters appearing in the game. It could also be a good opportunity to clean some pages and add some information (for example, Khan's page is rather incomplete about the movie Octopussy and I think it deserves to have a more detailed film biography like most other pages of the main villains).
I continue to edit on the French wiki James Bond I spoke to you once. Unfortunately, I am the only user who is really active on this wiki and I am a bit overworked right now. For example, the Wiki deals with very few vehicles, weapons, video games and novels, and I would really need help. Since you seem to have very large resources on the 007 universe, I wondered if you speak a little French or that you know someone who speaks it and who could come to help me. I am thinking of making a collective request on this wiki for help.
I'd love to personally help, I really would, but sadly my French isn't what it used to be and I've got my hands rather full at the minute. I've put a prominent request for help on the main page - if you need to have it tweaked or modified, please let me know. Hope it helps Vrack.
I had recently had a problem with the creator of the Annapurna Pictures page. I had replaced their content with the SpeedyDelete template since nothing was officially confirmed of the company's role in the Bond Series; just a bunch of rumors on website articles. Furthermore, Annapurna has distribution plans with MGM which does not include the James Bond series which is confirmed. The user then redone my revisions directly telling me in a aggressive tone, not to delete the page again when I had not. Therefore, I had redone his revision. Afterwords, he once again redone my revision and slammed me in a more aggressive tone not to the delete the page. I don't know what else to do than come to you so you could resolve this issue. If you want me not to intervene any further in the issue than that is fine; at least the issue would be resolved.
I wanted to share my worries over political correctness and how its implementations into original film franchise or TV shows that consisted of no political correctness. The latest Star War films have received backlash from mainly audiences for including political correctness and SJW agendas killing off all of the old cast for diversity brownie points. I really don't want the 007 franchise going on the same bandwagon ever since all of the Bond films are politically incorrect and it should be kept that way for the series' run. This is because it could bring forth the destruction of the 007 franchise as a whole. There should be no gay or woman Bond just like in the Shapiro video I showed you. I hope producers have in mind that Bond should not be a woman or gay because that be hijacking a classical characters and certainly no political correctness since it could ruin the franchise as a whole.
The screenplay that Kevin McClory, Jack Whittignham, and Ian Fleming collaborated on in the Bahamas; Was it registered? My father seems to think otherwise hence it had no copyright value according to files the Circuit Courts had. Can you provide evidence to answer my question to clear up the confusion here. Thanks.
