You can see old stuff in:
Fandyllic's talk page Edit
Since you're an admin, I suggest that you add the official twitter feed of Downton Abbey to the front page. The right column right now has a gap and the twitter widget can fill a bit of that up. It's very common for wikis to have a twitter widget on their front page so it could be a great addition to this wiki. 09:59, December 27, 2014 (UTC)
Are you here?Edit
You may remember that, eons ago, we had Robert's father as "Patrick Crawley"; well... I think I found where it came from. Right here. Under Robert it has him as "He is the son of the late Patrick Crawley and his wife, Violet". Should we re-add it in? --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 23:04, August 27, 2015 (UTC)
- It's borderline, but go ahead. Use this as a ref:
<ref>[https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=YQ3Di0adR8UC&q=patrick+violet#v=snippet&q=patrick%20violet&f=false Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham] in [https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=YQ3Di0adR8UC Downton Abbey: The Unofficial Guide to Seasons One and Two: BookCaps Study Guide]</ref>
- This is technically not a good source, because it is unofficial, but it should be fine unless something contradicts it. -- (talk · contr) 27 Aug 2015 3:20 PM Pacific
Re: Doing a good jobEdit
Hello. Thank you very much for the offer. I am happy to accept. --RotomicAcid: Remember, we are the Edwardians 21:20, September 23, 2015 (UTC)
I'm trying to make an edit to the "List of Minor Off Screen Characters, Patrick Crawley, 6th Earl of Grantham"... but my edit doesn't transfer over to the main page when I make it. Could you fix it?--HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 13:12, October 23, 2015 (UTC)
Your advice please Edit
Hello, I just wanted to ask you your opinion of how we should proceed with a possible problem editor. User:Scoutpower1 has made a number of problem edits, most of them to do with them adding appearances that aren't cofirmed and other speculation, as well as little errors. None of it is a massive problem but the worrying/annoying thing is, that they haven't replied to any of the comments that have been left on their talk page. So I'm not sure what to do now. --Amateur Obsessive (talk) 22:40, October 24, 2015 (UTC)
Home Page Issues Edit
The fandom link just added at the top of the home page does not seem to be working, but I do not see anything wrong with the URL. I removed the trailing slash, but that does not seem to be the problem.
Also, the featured article does not reflect the current wording of that article, specifically referring to series 6 episode 1 on PBS in the future tense. Unfortunately I do not see how to fix either problem. Ehj666 (talk) 20:09, January 5, 2016 (UTC)
Hi there! We you guys planning anything for the end of the show's run next week? Were thinking of running an Upstairs/Downstairs awards. We'd post for submissions next Monday. What do you think? —This unsigned comment is by Alwaysmore2hear (talk • contribs) 10:04, March 2, 2016. Please sign your posts with ~~~~! Whoops! thank you :) Jamie (profile)•(talk)
- I started a thread (Series 6 Upstairs/Downstairs Awards at Downton Abbey wiki) on your Community Central Message Wall, so we can discuss the details more there. I also notified Amateur Obsessive, so they can give feedback also. -- (talk · contr) 2 Mar 2016 10:58 AM Pacific
Scoutpower1 has made a large number of edits on Sybil Branson's page, enough of which are in error that the whole set should be rolled back to the edit of March 5, 13:20. I was only able to undo two edits, then unable to do any more than that. Ehj666 (talk) 06:09, March 6, 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks for fixing that, and the tip. I wasn't sure that would work due in part to extra things found at the end of the page, such as categories. —This unsigned comment is by Ehj666 (talk • contribs) 12:58, March 7, 2016. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
Final Upstairs/Downstairs is live!Edit
Hey Fandyllic, Doug from Wikia here. Just stopping by to let you know that the voting round for the last Downton Abbey Upstairs/Downstairs Awards is live! Feel free to promote around the wiki where you see fit
- I'll fire up a notice and put it on the main page. -- (talk · contr) 21 Mar 2016 3:10 PM Pacific
- Too bad it requires Flash. -- (talk · contr) 21 Mar 2016 3:18 PM Pacific
Well, this is odd. Have I crossed over into some bizarro universe? :D
Forum Migrations to Discussions Edit
Hey Fandyllic! I'm Jamie from FANDOM's Community Development team! Long time no talk! I'm not sure if we ever asked you guys if you are interested in turning on the Discussions feature for the Downton community, and migrating the Threaded Forums across as well.
In case you are unaware of the feature (which you probably are, but here's here's the spiel just in case), Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. Discussions also links with our FANDOM Apps, which this community has and it allows app users to easily take part in Discussions as well. You can read more about Discussions here.
For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.
If you have some concerns, Discussions, and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions and Forums will be sunsetted as a feature, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.
- Amateur Obsessive says it's ok so I will get the ball rolling! Thank you and I hope all is well! Jamie (profile)•(talk) 15:34, October 24, 2017 (UTC)

Fan stuff in Downton Abbey (film) Edit
- Because it really has nothing to do with the official movie and is about a separate unofficial fan effort. -- (talk · contr) 23 Jan 2018 11:20 AM Pacific
- Fair enough. Is there somewhere else better suited where I could place it? I think this project is important to Downton Abbey fans. —This unsigned comment is by DowntonAbbeyMovie (talk • contribs) 12:08, January 23, 2018. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
Re: Content ModeratorEdit
Portable Infoboxes Edit
Hello! I'm Isaac, and I'm representing FANDOM's Community Technical team. We help communities adopt to new technologies and features, like content portability. We've identified Downton Abbey Wiki as a high priority for introducing the Portable Infobox tool, which has a lot of benefits for your community. Rather than get into all of the metrics and numbers (though I can present some of those if you're interested), I'll keep it simple. I'd like to reproduce as much as possible the look and feel of your desktop infoboxes in global CSS, and work to update the Infobox templates themselves so that they can be accessible on any current and future platform. Maintaining them if you want to make changes should be very simple.
As your infoboxes all have the same style, it was fairly straightforward to replicate "tablegreen". I've already set the infobox drafts up for your review. We'd really like to get working on your community, but we would appreciate your approval of the templates or modifications. If you have any questions, or this is the wrong venue for this kind of a discussion, please let me know. Thanks! — FishTank (wall) 21:36, August 29, 2018 (UTC)

Your Wiki ManagerEdit
After confirming with staff, I'm able to help be a Wiki Manager doe thia community! Would you like me to contact the other admins here as well regardless if they're inactive? 02:51, May 21, 2019 (UTC)
Community Manager Introduction Edit
Hi Fandyllic, my name is Antonio and I am a Community Manager of the TV/Movies vertical for Fandom. I wanted to introduce myself and see if you need anything, have any problems, or would like to share any ideas you have. As you may already know, our Community Org is changing. From now on our team will focus even more on building closer relationships with the communities, admins, and users.
We are here to support you and help make this community thrive. If you need anything, feel free to contact me or our Wiki Manager directly at any time. And just so you know, Wiki Managers might be more available than me on weekends.
I will be here together to TimeShade -Wiki Manager- for anything you need.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope to hear back from you soon! :)--Antonio R. Castro 00:49, July 13, 2019 (UTC)
Hey Fandyllic, you may have noticed on this wiki on the right module there is a module offering a walkthrough of editing. It would help newer editors learning more about the editing process and a step by step walkthrough on editing the page they're on. This is currently a test run by the Editor Experience team. What are your thoughts on this? Any feedback is welcome for the EdEx team. 04:15, September 19, 2019 (UTC)
- I'll play around with it. I may ask some people who don't usually even visit FANDOM if it stands out or seems helpful. -- (talk · contr) 19 Sep 2019 3:23 PM Pacific
Film summary Edit
Much thanks for that lovely welcome.I've been a browser for ages before I decided in a sugar-laden rush to do that film summary while I could still remember it. I'm expecting it to get majorly edited once the film comes out in the US :-)
- It seems the plot summary has gotten quite detailed for the film... maybe too detailed. LOL. -- (talk · contr) 19 Sep 2019 7:22 PM Pacific
Letter in filmEdit
According to this site, the words on the letter in the movie have been revealed by the historical advisor, Alastair Bruce. Should we add it in to the summary or notes for the film?--HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 00:03, September 23, 2019 (UTC)
I just happened to read the resume of season 3 episode 2. Please, please, PLEASE get the titles right. It is NOT "Lord Robert", that would be the (honorary) title of the younger son of a duke or marquess. Lord Grantham is a PEER and should be thus be referred to as "Lord Grantham" or "The Earl of Grantham". Neither is Sir Anthony Strallan "Sir Strallan". He is a baronet and ought to be referred to as "Sir Anthony Strallan" or as "Sir Anthony". You put so much effort in this Wiki, so you ought to get such (specifically for this series) important details right.

- Fixed. I dispute the determination of "important details", but the issue is worth fixing nonetheless. -- (talk · contr) 7 Feb 2020 12:08 PM Pacific
