Greetings, kindred spirit! I'm SusannahWithAnH, one of the admins on this wiki. I will edit pretty much anything, but I prefer to stick to behind-the-scenes stuff like categories, templates, images and the like. If you've got any questions, you can leave a message for me. If you're from another wiki or Anne site, you can also request affiliation here. I'm here almost every day, so I'll try and get back to you as soon as possible. Cheers!

  • Welcome back here, Susannah! I'm really glad that you are still very enthusiastic about this Wiki and I hope you did well on your exams. ;)

    I'm really busy right now, the workload at uni is just crazy, but I'm trying to help out when I have enough time - or when I need a moment off from studying. Now I mainly focus on the behind the scenes info from the filming of both the TV series Anne and the two film sequels. I also edit pages concerning Project Green Gables and there is a little announcement I wanted to make for you (and also the other editors) to know:

    I am aware that the crew episode count for Season 2 (and for the entire series as well) is not accurate and it is not being updated. The thing is that the producers use the same crew list for almost every episode and the only certain thing is the cast (because you can see who actually appeared in the episode). This situation is why our episode counts are a little bit off and why the episodes are not at the IMDb. I wrote an email to the creators more than a month ago, but there hasn't been any reply yet. I'll write them again when I have enough time. :) 

    I recently visited the official website of the Cracked Slate group and the whole content is gone. The page now says Coming soon. The other social media accounts are not updated, but maybe there is a chance that we get a third web series? 

    I don't have anything else on my mind right now, but you can contact me anytime you want. :)

    • Welcome back, WithAnH :) (It's monotonous if all you call Susannah ;))

        Loading editor
    • Thank you both! My name is actually Susannah, so I really don't mind getting called it all the time! WithAnH is funny, though. It's nice to be back.

      I hadn't even noticed the PGG problem yet! Not to worry - your explanation makes sense and I hope we can get the issue sorted out soon. It's a surprise about the Cracked Slate production. I thought for sure that they had (sadly) dropped the ball. Hopefully we'll get some more news and the project won't be forever stuck in development hell.

      Right now I am going to finish cleaning up the RoI library pages, as well as add to the books timeline as much as I can. The category system also needs fixing - I was partway through a big project when I took a break.

      I do want to say that I am very VERY happy with how the galleries are turning out - I know there is lots to go, but right now they look SO good. It's exactly what I wanted when I decided to build gallery pages - everyone contributes as much as they can, and we end up with a big collection of covers. The end result is impressive.

        Loading editor
    • You're welcome. :) If you are interested in more details about the PGG situation and you want to know what exactly is going on, here is what I wrote them in my email:

      "[...] The thing is that the same crew list was used for 4 episodes in a row and my intuition tells me that it's not correct. The crew list in question was first used in episode 2.4 ("Making Friends 101") with Laura as Director, Janika as Writer, Tuulia as Cinematographer and Lyydia as Editor. The following week's episode ("Molding Young Minds") had the same crew list. That's not weird, things like that happen, the four of them could write, film and edit two episodes in a row and it would be normal. But I noticed one thing. There was only one credit in the cast section - Laura as Anne. The credits for Viviana and Juho playing Jane and Gilbert were not there. That's when I knew that the whole video description was likely copied from the previous week. I thought you knew about it and that you would edit it. [...] The same crew list was also used for two following episodes ("Miss Shirley's First Week" and "Hair Update") and that's exactly when my updating attempts got stuck as I couldn't tell for sure if Laura-Janika-Tuulia-Lyydia really made those episodes or it's just the ongoing mistake."

      I wrote this email on October 2. The crew list has been used several times since then.

      I'm really happy about the book cover galleries as well! I'm particularly proud of SarahCB's job, she managed to extend most of our galleries. And I know how difficult it can be as I was doing research on several languages (including Swedish, Russian, Czech, Ukrainian, Polish and of course Slovak). It is not an easy job, you are practically confused all the time becuase you find a book cover and you cannot tell when it was published - there are at least 7 possible years, book sellers often lie and use incorrect images or information and you have to be aware of rule no. 1 - YOU CANNOT TRUST ANYTHING OR ANYONE. You have to double check everything.

      I recently found an article about the LMM book collection on KindredSpaces.ca . There are many covers of English editions that we don't have in our galleries, but it is very likely that a further research will be needed (to find out if the publication dates are correct).

  • Hi there! I know the new Anne of Green Gables show will be premiering in 2017 and I wanted to help out in any way I can. I could to do this in multiple ways such as creating a new background skin and adding relevant information to the Character, Works, and Portal sections of the wiki. Anything and everything I change and/or add is subject to your approval of course.

    I also wanted to let you know that currently the wikia polls aren't working on mobile. We know that they are a great way to survey the community so we recommend replacing them with another mainpage unit. Pollsnacks is super easy to incorporate and I can change it for you if you like.

    Let me know if my helping out would be something that you and the community might be interested in. :)

    • Hello! Thank you for your interest. :) I knew about the polls not working, but to be honest, mobile experience is not really one of my priorities. However, if PollSnack works, I don't mind using it.

      A new background for the wiki, at least temporarily in promotion of the new TV series, would be great, as we've been thinking of changing the current one for quite some time. Perhaps it will be easier to create one when more promo pics are out? Also, LilyLacreag and I can tell you more about what needs to be done closer to when the TV series airs (I don't have Netflix so I don't know if/when I'll be able tow watch it), but you can also talk to LilyLacreag (who's on holiday at the moment), as I'm sure you know. I noticed she's already given you a debriefing, so there's not much more I need to say! But yes, your help is definitely appreciated, especially for PollSnack and a new background skin.

      Thanks again for dropping by :)

    • Awesome! :) I look forward to working with both of you!

        Loading editor
    • I'm looking forward to working with you too! And I'm really excited about the new TV show and the fact that somebody actually came here and said "Hi, I want to help you with it." :)

      I'm already back home and as Susannah said, there's not much to do right now. The filming is supposed to start in several days/weeks, I only know that Moira (the producer/writer) was recently looking for the right locations in Prince Edward Island and Ontario. I'm sure they already have the contract with the actress who's gonna play Anne, but there hasn't been any press release about her identity yet. Actually, the background with the promotional pictures might attract the possible viewers and fans of the upcoming series, so I'm okay with it. 

      (A little side note... do you think that I have Netflix? Not a chance! I watch everything online... That's how I intend to watch the show, by the way. :) )

        Loading editor
    • Hi again! Okay so I went ahead and changed the background just until we get more images for the upcoming CBC universe. I also created a new poll using Pollsnacks and created a new page to archive the previous poll. For future polls, I created this How-to Guide to help you make the switch! http://bit.ly/2cPq8xh Let me know if you like it or if I need to make changes. Let me know what you think or if you need anything changed/edited. :)

  • In case you don't check your email regularly (I have two email adresses myself and I check one of them like once a month - then I'm always surprised with the amount of unopened messages.) I just want you to know that I wrote you a very long email yesterday. :D You don't have to reply immediately, I just wanted to tell you about it because I don't know if you already found it or not. :) 

      Loading editor
    • This is excellent timing, haha. I've been writing a reply for the past fifteen minutes and was literally just reading it over and going to press the 'send' button when I saw this. So you should get a long email in your inbox very soon :)

      (And people always think I never check my email/messages/facebook/anything, but that's because I'm just really bad at replying in a timely manner!)

    • Intuition or sixth sense? :D Like I said, I was just making sure - I know many people who don't check their emails and it's not like on Facebook with the "Seen" word. Thanks, I'm looking forward to reading it. ;)

  • Hi, I noticed you were an admin here and wanted to message you about this. Sometime ago before I had read the Anne of Green Gables books I found a Japanese manga titled Akage no Anne. I've only read the first few pages so I don't know if its any good or not yet. I believe it is just an adaptation of the novel and connected with the anime of the same name. There also appear to be ones based on Anne of Avonlea, Anne of the Island, and Rainbow Valley. I found them hereSorry for the long message, I'm a fan of manga and felt like bringing attention to this.

  • I've noticed that you changed the layout of the CoA library page. I understand your intention and value your time and effort, but I feel that the page looks overcomplicated and slightly chaotic. I don't know if you want to change also other libraries, but the other books have more than 30 chapters and the tabview would not look good. Also, the CoA chapters are linked from their respective main pages – those links can direct you only to the subpages, not the tabview page.

    On the other hand, I like that the title is now in the middle, it looks good. :)

      Loading editor
    • Yes, I think I decided in the end that it just looked way too messy, but didn't have time to change it back just then. I will do so, but I think I'll keep a couple of the smaller changes, such as the title in the middle and the slightly altered navbox at the bottom. Thanks for your input. I was experimenting with several different things at the same time, and some are definitely more sensible than others.

      edit: I've now fixed the pages up, but kept/added a few minor things:

      • centred the title of the story/chapter
      • changed the DISPLAYTITLE to more appropriate things
      • changed the footer navbox slightly
      • linked the articles for chapters of CoA to their library pages

      I have not changed the AoGG and RoI chapter pages, but will do so.

        Loading editor
    • It looks really great now! And thank you for adding categories for the CoA stories and cast lists. I wasn't sure which categories would be the best and I didn't want to cause any chaos.

    • I'm finally back home, safe and sound! The trip was amazing and it was really great to visit all the landmarks. I'm a proper fangirl and it was really difficult for me to keep my mouth shut and not to tell my friends everything about their involvement in Harry Potter or Doctor Who. For me it was a dream come true. Sadly, we did not have time to visit King's Cross.

      Well, that is the disadvantage of Australia, I guess. It is easier to travel here in Europe as the countries are usually quite small. The flight to London took only about two hours. You just have to save up a lot of money - travelling usually isn't cheap. Well, at least from my point of view as my country is not very rich and Slovaks generally think twice before spending money.

      My laptop is currently being repaired, but I'm planning to contribute any time my mum borrows me hers. We'll see... :)

  • Hi Susannah. I approved your request, and I'm here to help.

    Please share with me any information and details you have about a redesign for the things you mentioned (main page, background, infoboxes, and possibly logo), and I'll get started when I return to work on Monday.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  • Hi Susannah!

    Well, this would be long, I think. A really long time ago I wrote to that Message Box on GGF website that we here like that show and consider it a proper adaptation so we make pages for episodes, actors etc. Some time later, there was a reply from Marie Trotter and since then I was in contact with her - she provided me some info that I needed to upload on IMDb or here.

    I wrote email to Marie a few days ago and asked for a permission to legally use their images. Good news! We've got it!

    But there was something in her reply that I want to discuss with you. I'm gonna copy it here as there is no way to contact you privately:

    "I have a request to make- we've had some concerns lately about our actors' and showrunners' privacy on the Internet. Several of them do not intend to pursue a career in acting or webseries after this show is finished, and therefore are concerned about having Wiki and IMDb pages. For simplicity's sake (and I know you've put a lot of work in the actors' pages), we're going to ask that you remove all the actor and showrunner pages from the Wiki and IMDb. Please know that we really do appreciate your hard work in creating a solid database of information! But we would like to keep our personal lives private- so the pages for Mandy, Chris, Ravyn, Eliza, Abigail, Tanner, and Darcy need to come down. I sincerely apologize, I would have told you much earlier had I known- but this problem only came up recently, from concerns from some of our team members."

    About IMDb... I already replied, as I take care of all the IMDb stuff connected to AoGG. Shortly: There are only two options: delete all the cast and crew info from IMDb (as that is the only way to remove actors pages) or keep it as it is now (with no personal info, just name and filmography).

    However, our pages... I'm not the only admin, that's why I want to discuss it with you. What do you think? I'm not really sure about what to do. I mean, HP wiki has a page for actor who played a goblin in the background and we would not have a page for person who played our Anne? But I respect their privacy... I was thinking about having a page with almost no information. No photo, no biography, no filmography, no social media links. Just the first sentence, imagesof template (link to the behind the scenes photos) and external link to IMDb. But I really wanna know your opinion so we can tell Marie what we're gonna do.

    • Well, this is a pickle.

      I have written out several responses to this, most of them not very articulate, so this is the result. Even though I never had anything to do with IMDb pages or GGF wiki pages for things other than episodes, I do feel partly responsible for this. I felt uncomfortable when I saw that you added FB links and things like that, but since I hate confrontations (even on the internet!), I didn't talk to you about it. Also, I've never contacted any member of GGF, privately or publicly, so I had no idea how they felt about it all. In hindsight, I should have checked before we veered into privacy-violating territory.

      • breathes deeply*

      Anyhow, there's nothing we can do about the past, so all we can do is to try and make things right. I would argue that IMDb pages for cast & crew (cc) members are not really necessary -- we should keep the focus on the episodes and the webseries. But since I'm not familiar with the inner workings of IMDb, here's my suggestion for the rest of the problem:

      I think what you considered for the changes to our wiki pages is good. Run them by Marie and make sure that she and the rest of the GGF crew agree and are completely OK with it before you assume or do anything. But if they want us to delete the pages completely, we'll have to do it.

        Loading editor
    • You should've stopped me then! :D I was thinking about it when I added the links to Mandy and Ravyn, I wasn't sure, but somehow I chose the wrong option. I'm sorry as I'm the responsible person. Maybe our links were not the main reason for them to feel not safe, but they might have created an easier way for someone to bother them.

      Here's what Marie replied: "For the Wiki- we're okay with having the actors listed, of course, but personal information really must come down. ... So in recap- IMDb can stay exactly as is, sorry for the misunderstanding, and on the Wiki, we ask that you remove personal information."

      So... IMDb is fine. I'm not gonna change anything. And here on Wiki - as I suggested yesterday, I'm gonna remove all the personal info as they are OK with having pages here (without personal info, of course).

      By the way, we should find a way to comunicate privately as it's kind of uncomfortable (at least) for me to discuss some delicate issues here where everyone can see it.

    • I think I have a solution: send me a note with your personal email to anneofgreengableswiki@gmail.com (which I run), and I'll reply using my personal email. If you want to use something other than emails, that's fine, but I thought it'd be easiest.

  • Hi Susannah! Hope all is well. I just wanted to reach out to see if it's okay if I set up a Parent Page on the Anne of Green Gables Wiki. Essentially this page is a guide for parents to understand the age range for different books and shows! Here is an example from The Hunger Games to give you an idea of what it looks like.

    Let me know if this is a possibility and/or if you and the other users would be interested in helping me fill it out since you are the experts! Best, Asnow89 @@fandom (profile)•(talk) 23:14, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
