  • Hi,

    That's OK to mention the 3 years. It should probably have an asterisk for further clarification.  

    The series' press releases have said 3 years since the events of series 2 but the birthday party is just over 2 years since the date of Beth's summons to testify at Joe's trial, which I think was May 14, 2014. She then had Lizzie and up to 3 months more of the trial. 

    I know Mark keeps saying 3 years but it makes more sense if it's "3 years since Danny's murder" on July 18, 2013 and not since Joe was kicked out of town.

  • Hi,

    I just wanted to say thank you for giving me the position as an admin once again. As i have used it to my full potential. I wanted to say that I am going nowhere and intend to make sure that the wiki is up to date and by series three everything is full of detail.

    If you aren't staying on here, is there any sort of roles that I could gain so it means I am capable to do everything?

    Thanks and I hope to see you around, now that there is a series three, which I have made the page for. I have also made a blog post on what we could expect in the next series,

    Thanks

    • Hey there!

      Just as in the last series gap, I will always be here checking up on things and making sure nobody's destroying the place, but my activity may be very low because I'm a lazy sod and I prefer working on back-end jobs than actual mainspace pages. However, if you ever need to ask anything, I'll be just a quick message away! Oh, and you should have the powers to do anything you need to as an admin, except make new admins, which I doubt there would be much need for. So, yeah. I hope I'll have some time later to add more info to various pages, especially as the series is now airing here is Aus so I can add ore content on the second watch through, but otherwise, I'll just see you around.

      Hurray for series 3 :)

  • Hi there, I just wanted to say thanks for giving me the admin rights, as I intend to use them well.

    The second series is getting better and better and as you may have noticed, more and more people are starting to edit on the the wikia. Which is great but also brings problems to the wikia.

    As I have worked on quite a lot of wikias in the past and present, when a show becomes increasingly more popular it brings vandalism and what not. In my opinion we need to protect some of the main articles for example the home page which I have do already. Main characters such as Alec and Ellie. Just to be on the safe side.

    Also if the wikia does become more successful I would love to do the a Broadchurch Wikia Awards as we could do awards for both the series, wikia and it's users. We could post something on the main page which would then lead to a blog post. Where users can vote.

    I think that would be a good idea, as the awards should bring popularity with them. I think as this is the only Broadchurch Wiki we need to be celebrating the wikia as a whole and the show too.

    Also as you may of seen I am adding more and more pages on the new characters and that's what I want to carry on with.

    Thanks, GamerKid248.

    • Hey GamerKid248!

      It's fantastic that your adding more content, and it's also brilliant that you have such high hopes for this wiki. The problem is, I have a lot of experience with being on wikis in the off season, and because of that I doubt this wiki will be able to retain it's momentum once Episode 2.8 airs next week. Most of this wiki's life has been spent in the off season between series 1 and 2, and was dead for most of that time. Maybe I'm just being pessimistic and this wiki will get more contributors as Broadchuch airs elsewhere (S2 started airing officially in Australia this weekend), but I wouldn't keep such high hope if I were you. Traffic is wonderful while it lasts, but on a wiki on a topic which is only released periodically, it rarely stays this high.

      That leads me to the topic of page protection. Very few pages should ever be protected on a wiki, and only if there are clear signs of persistent vandalism actually happening (as opposed to predicted vandalism). Even then, you shouldn't lock out any more than the unregistered/new users so that other users aren't discouraged from editing and it means that people aren't relying on admins to update everything. This is especially important for pages like Ellie and Hardy's as they're little more than stubs at the moment. So I say yes to protecting the front page against new users, but no to the others. Using rollback is easy enough to stop most vandalism.

      If you'd like to try and create some wiki awards, go ahead and try it! Make a blog post and advertise it on the front page! But do it quickly before Ep 2.8 airs to get the maximum users seeing it. I'll participate if no one else!

      Anyway, I haven't seen Ep 2.7 yet so I'm in spoiler avoidance mode, but I should hopefully be able to contribute a little more tinight!

  • When I added the cast list i noticed that Claire is referd to as Claire Spencer. On this wiki she is referd to as Ashworth. Do you remember her surname has been mentioned on screen. I think we should change it to Spencer, I assume she either didn't change name when sher married Lee or changed it back after the Sandbrook case.

    • "Claire Ashworth" was written on the envelope with the bluebell I thought, but if this isn't what she's referred to in the credits, then can you redirect the name to whatever is in the credits? I've seen other news sites such as RadioTimes give out different last names for her, so the credits should be what's trusted if you can find a copy to review.

    • No idea how why I wrote Spencer was thinking of Ripley, the credits says Claire Ripley. I assume she changed name from Ashworth after Sandbrook then.

    • Thanks for noticing that and fixing it up.

  • Hi, I wanted to ask how many edits you have to do to become an admin. I know I only started yesterday on this wikia but I have got a good history on wikias. I am an admin on two wikias, In the Flesh and The Sarah Jane Adventures. Both shows have now finished so I have ages to work on them. Broadchurch on the other hand is an active show, in which will need editing and keep protecting from vandalism. I know I can help. I write for papers around my area and have posts as a journalism. I think I can be a key admin worker here.

    • Hey there! I would love to have another admin around here to help out, but I currently don't have bureaucrat rights to give those powers. How about we do a deal: I'll spend the next week trying to fully adopt the wiki to get bureaucrat powers (it takes about a week for the request to go through), and if you're still active by then, I'll give you admin rights. Sounds good?

        Loading editor
    • That sounds fantastic! ☺️ I will try and add as much detail as possible!

        Loading editor
    • As much detail as possible is exactly what this wiki needs! I noticed that you said you came from a journalistic background. That's really good as it seems to suggest you will be good at writing the articles! Me, I'm better at the technical side than the actual article content, which is one of the reasons why so many of the articles here are underdeveloped yet the infoboxes are beautiful (if I may say so myself :P ). Anyway, hope to see you around! A link to the adoption request is here if you're interested.

  • Nice to see you back.

    I have a problem at the moment. I don't know if I mentioned but I'm moving to South Africa (near Cape Town) in two days time, and it might be a while before we get an internet connection up. Til then, I will be able to edit this Wiki on my phone, but I really appreciate your help on here, so if I don't edit for a while, it's not because I've forgotten about this Wiki, it's just i'll be having trouble getting online.


    Thanks :-)

    • In case you were wondering, just checked out Google, and the most searched for thing under "Broadchurch w" is Broadchurch Wiki, and this wiki is the 3rd site listed if one searches for "Broadchurch Wiki" on Google. However, if one just searches "Broadchurch", we don't appear within the first 5 pages of results, but hopefully with enough time and content, we can work our way onto that list. Just thought you might like to know.

    • yeah, thanks for the tip :)
