  • Hi

    I have many of suggestions for merging pages:

    - Red Silk Hat with Silk Hat

    - Iron Boots with Iron Leggings

    - Silver Boots with Silver Leggings

    - Platinum Shoes with Platinum Leggings

    - Collected Item with Collectibles

    - Crystal (power-up) with Morning Star (power-up)

    I also have two other questions:

    - Would it be possible to redirect Copper and Silver from Encore of the Night to the Gold page?

    - Would it be possible to create a gallery for the Carmilla's character?

    • Hello, Dovah. I apologize for the late reply.

      I agree with:

      Even though leggings are not actually the same as boots, they do take their place in Harmony of Dissonance and their icons do display pairs of boots.

      In regard to Collected ItemCollectibles, I'm not really sure what to think. I guess both pages could be merged, but currently the Collectibles page is organized in its entirety to focus only on the Harmony of Dissonance items, so you will have to come up with a good design so it can be used for both games (HoD and Legends); and of course, making sure that all links that are currently pointing to the Collected Item page, do it toward Collectibles when (and if) you have finished. (TIP: Use What links here)

      About the Crystal (power-up) and Morning Star (power-up), I'd say to leave both pages, as the former is also used as reference to the other diverse types of crystals that have appeared throughout the series.

      About the Copper, Silver and Gold pages/categories, I have thought about linking all items to the Gold page several times in the past, but I've always refrained from it because I believe some of the former admins pretended to categorize each element separately (e.g.: "Gold" category); and also because it appears that Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night treats each element for a specific purpose (although I could be wrong). I guess we'll have to put that to vote on Discord as I would like to hear Chernabogue's insight on it first.

      And last, let's leave Carmilla's page as it is (I believe that topic had already been discussed in the past).

      Regards.

    • Right, I take note of it.

      I think you're right about Copper and Silver: it would be better to have a vote on Discord to get the opinion of a few people.

      Thanks :)

    • Remember not to delete any pages, but instead leave them as redirects to the pages they were merged to.

      Also, you forgot to include all the categories from the old pages to the ones they were merged to (e.g.: "Boots" category on Silver Leggings as it now includes Silver Boots).

  • Hello, just wanted to say thanks for the help when i added into some of the pages to help them out (changing one pic for a better one, adding a line or two) Very appreciative.

    I was wondering if we could change Gabriel/Dracula's bio images for their artwork images like shown for Trevor and Simon (that pose pic of Dracula with the burning cross behind him and the Gabriel one where he's standing before Marie's grave). Hope this isn't too much to ask for as i figured it'd make the bio stand out more with said art shown off like the pages are for Trevor and Simon (wonder why Victor never got an art promo image).

  • Hi, I just wanted to ask about Trevor's age in the animated series. 

    According to this page (https://castlevania.wikia.com/wiki/Trevor_Belmont), Trevor was 20 years old in 1476, the year for the beginning of the animated series. However, on this page (https://castlevania.wikia.com/wiki/Trevor_Belmont_(animated_series)), Trevor is in his late thirties. This is a really minor detail, but I just wanted to clear this up. 

    Thanks!

    • The animated series takes place in its own timeline/universe; as such, any characters and events that take place in it may or may not share the same characteristics than those they were based upon from the main Castlevania timeline. This also allows the series the introduction of new characters and unique events. In other words, the Trevor Belmont from the animated series is not the same from Dracula's Curse and other titles in the main timeline; he has his own backstory and lives in his own era.

    • Hi. Thanks for you reply.

      Do you know where I can find more information about Trevor's age in the animated series?

  • Hi I wanted to know something: on the Spell Fusion page, the different powers / invocations have a name and a description. But are they official names and descriptions? If so, what is the source?

  • Hi.

    As I asked on Death's Page before, he was in Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth, yet was not in the original game. How do we handle that regarding his bio?

      Loading editor
    • Death's not given any storyline involvement in that game, nor in Castlevania/Super Castlevania IV, Simon's Quest, Dracula's Curse and Bloodlines, so there's really not much to say about it. I believe the manuals only limit themselves to say that he's "Dracula's confidant" and similar things (at least the English ones, I'm not aware if the Japanese manuals expand about his participation in those games).

      Regarding ReBirth, there's a small "Trivia" bullet that mentions he was added to that game, even though he didn't appear in the original. If you wish to expand more about his participation in that (and/or the other) game(s), feel free to do it, jut please be careful not to add any fan speculation.

    • Got it. Added it in to the detail you requested, and made sure to avoid stating anything not indicated in the games themselves or the manual.

    • I seem to have an idea of what was the problem; the code and templates' data on all affected pages were actually correct. If an issue of this nature still displays on a page, it usually gets resolved after the whole wiki's database has updated, which happens once every day.

      However, there exist certain types of events that will never get resolved, and as such, will keep on presenting false positives, as it was this case. These will only get fixed after the affected pages have been manually updated via an edit.

      I've just made null edits on all remaining affected pages and they have finally disappeared from the "Pages with broken file links" category page.

        Loading editor
    • I'll have to remember to make a null edit on the articles concerned.

      Thanks a lot :D

  • I wanted to thank you for your edits to a lot of the pages I had edited, including fixing spelling errors I had made and re-wording things to sound a lot more fluid.  Thanks for making me feel welcome~! ^_^

    • Glad to know you're having fun on the wiki. I try to review every edit made on it and if I make another edit after you (or anyone), it's likely just housekeeping and to preserve a quality standard.

      I suggest you to consider joining our Discord server, where you will be able to meet people with the same interests as yours and talk all things Castlevania and whatnot.

      Keep up the good work.

      Regards.

  • Hi

    I ask a question myself: what makes you say that Order of Ecclesia really takes place between 1862 and 1897? Despite the fact that no specific date has been given on when the game takes place.

      Loading editor
    • That recent edit on the Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia page was made by an anonymous user. According to them, Dracula reaches 800 years old during the events of OoE, as Mathias Cronqvist/Dracula was born in 1062, thus giving 1862 as the starting point when OoE could have taken place. However, I don't know where that specific "800" years number comes from, and unless a valid source is provided it could have merely been made-up.

      The ending number, 1897, is the year when Quincy Morris, John's father, killed Dracula prior to the events of Castlevania: Bloodlines, giving us only 35 years to work with between when Shanoa and Quincy each killed him.

      As we all know by know, the "Dracula resurrecting every 100 years" rule has long been abolished. If we check the timeline, Dracula's real resurrections (i.e., not only as a ghost) greatly differ between time periods, most frequently happening an average of every 40+/- years (Symphony of the Night and Curse of Darkness being remarkable examples of short time lapses).

      I think this user didn't take certain factors in consideration while calculating those numbers (or maybe I'm just missing something). That said, for the time being I think it would be better to play it safe and restore the page to its original state. Still, I'm going ask the people at Discord what they think about this.

      Thanks for pointing it out.

    • Oh sorry, I thought it was you who made the edit.

    • Very interesting! :o

      I think the "100 years" thing was really just the state of affairs before the turn of the 19th century; personally speaking, I would say someone writing in 1801 could truthfully make the claim that Dracula's return happens every century, since before this time battles against Dracula happening in the same century were just parts of their centennial cycles, since it often takes more than one attempt to kill Dracula "properly": for example how 'Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse', the original 'Castlevania', and 'Castlevania: The Adventure' lead to 'Castlevania: Curse of Darkness', 'Castlevania II: Simon's Quest', and 'Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge' due to Dracula having been at first defeated but not vanquished by each era's heroes.  It could also be argued that 'Symphony of the Night' is part of the same cycle as 'Rondo of Blood', since Shaft is behind Dracula's resurrection in both cases, but this is also the beginning of an interesting turning point.  In the 19th and 20th centuries, it becomes increasingly clear that Dracula isn't just coming back "early" but that his resurrections are going to continue to happen more and more frequently (probably due to the power of humanity's darkness growing alongside the first truly global conflicts), culminating in his final cataclysmic resurrection in the year 1999.

  • There is a problem on the Heavy Armor page: there is a huge blanck from Enemy Data.

      Loading editor
    • The problem once again was caused for exceeding the number of allowed templates on the page. All points out that even the inclusion of references also affect this factor. I removed a reference on the infobox and the page returned to normal. I also made some tests, and by removing at least two rows in total from the Enemy and Item Data tables, the page also displays correctly.

  • Hey Lavey, i went and tried to change the profile images of Gabriel/Dracula to their artwork shots from Reverie and from the promotional artwork of LoS2, key word being tried. I was wondering if you could help with that. (these images would fit better and mirror how the profile images are for Trevor Belmont/Alucard and Simon Belmont)
