Talk:Guide for young witches

Probably needs a name change to just Guide for Wet Hennes but seems serviceable. Been recommending this page to new witches. --Wrathe 12:20, 24 Dec 2021 (ET)

Would anybody be able to date the original article? According to Pit Pumpkin town was opened for players in 2008. The article also mentions only three languages (Djelian, Morporkian, Agatean), hasn't Ephebian been around for the same time? When did newbie chests/crates start being around? When did the broom location in the McSweeney estate change? If the article should remain unchanged for historical reasons, should the intermediate edits be reverted, and should the warning about incorrect data be emphasised more? I am not really happy with the article as it is now. --Gunde 10:22, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

  • I think it's a variety of dates, and Wee Yoni simply didn't edit as she went along to add new things. I originally added the article for historical reasons, and to protect it from spambots at the other wiki. My suggestion is we revert the edits made to it, and then make a new page that we DO edit as needed for the benefit of wet hennes. --Helaena 04:53, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
The versions of this article are in the history if someone wants to look at it, but the version referring to old info is unlikely to be very useful to most readers.
I think it's probably best to change the notice to say it is based on Yoni's version and updated then update it, adding the name of who added new paragraphs but just changing stuff in existing ones. --Frazyl 07:55, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
...Ah. Yeah, I guess it's not really appropriate to have a notice saying "This is exactly the way it was, beware of outdatedness" and to update bits of it. I'm in favor of changing the notice and updating small factual bits (maybe keeping really outdated parts like the newbie area but with a notice that it doesn't apply and is there for historical reasons). --Ilde 18:20, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
