  • Hello, I'll try to explain this the best that I can. Basically I'm not sure how to insert a link, for instance if I wanted to say "in the sixth season" and link "sixth season" to [Season Six] without creating a new page, how would I do that? Same with putting "6" instead of physically having to put [Season 6].

    • Never mind, I just figured out that I have to highlight the word and change it to an existing link.

    • Hello! I'm sorry for my delayed reply! I've not been too well. Glad you figured it out! So, you can do it as you type too - by inserting [[Season Six]]. When you're using the link button, you don't have to insert the entire URL if it's an OITNB wiki page, you can just start to type the page you want to link to and it should bring it up for you to select. Hope that makes sense! Any other questions, please do ask away.

  • Heyo,


    So when putting in some new photos for the season five gallery the whole thing kind of went over the infobox, I was wondering if you knew how to fix that?


    Thanks, Kit.

  • Heya,

    The inmate navbox now has the past inmates which is fine, however my query is what do we do about the escaped inmates, i.e Chang and Pennsatucky?

    • Hm, I see what you mean. Are you asking whether we should italicise their names or not? If so, I'd be happy with italicising them. However, Penn is still on prison ground technically - it seems likely that she'll be found eventually, whereas I reckon Chang's gone far away.

  • Hello,


    I recently noticed that the character infobox had been edited with new sections and such, that is all fine however on most if not all character pages a small fraction of data is coming through and leaving all given data in the actual edit section of the infobox. Is there anything we can do?


    Thanks, Kit.

    • Heya, sorry I'm on holiday at the moment. I've just had a look and I'm not entirely happy that a user who hadn't previously contributed to the wiki in any other way has just come along and changed our entire template without discussing it. I don't know how you feel about it? I'm not saying that additions would be a bad idea, just that I'm not happy with someone coming along and changing it all without consulting anyone. I'm tempted to undo it all and place a notice on the user's wall asking that they start a discussion before making further changes. What do you think? (Any regular users also welcome to jump in on this discussion)

    • (I've gone ahead and done that now simply because I'm only online for a limited period and infoboxes were broken, but if there's elements anyone would like putting back in, feel free to suggest, I only had a quick look but some of the additional info could be good if the coding was done correctly)

    • No I agree, that was the right move forward.

  • Hey palz,


    So my exams are just about coming to an end (final one is Monday) and after that the wiki is all good to go. Like I'm ready to do my thing again.

    See ya then!

  • Hey Ruby!

    Thanks again for taking such good care of the wikia while I wasn't around. I'm fully back now though to work on the Season Five content! :) Have you watched the new season yet? I'm currently still watching.

    However, what I wanted to address was that one member had created a lot of articles on the series' writers - but I don't think we really have enough information of them, nor they really are of much relevance unlike Piper Kerman and Jenji Kohan, to make proper articles out of it for our wikia. What do you think?

    - Liane~

    • I have mentioned it to Arthur (IKermet) - he did say he likes to have a page for everything (also he speaks Portugese with not much English so it's a little difficult to communicate). He's a great contributor so I don't want to devalue that. Basically I feel if a character has been given a name, they can stay, but unnamed seems a bit superfluous - what do you think?

      I LOVED the new season! I was so gutted when Taystee refused to take the deal, though ;_; Also the error at the end when they said their were 10 missing inmates annoyed me - there were 10 in the pool, plus Penn and Chang had escaped. Although they also counted Linda, so it should have been 11! But yeah, I thought it was great! Just sad we still don't have an Angie flashback yet! How about you?

      There have been some new categories created by a few different users too, I think I've taken care of it all but just keep an eye out. Takes ages to sort out :(

    • Oh, also, I wanted to ask you about the AKA bit in the infobozes. Some of them are getting ridiculously long. How do you feel about only listing nicknames that are actually nicknames rather than off-the-cuff references that are only made once?

  • Should we change the season article titles from "Season One" to "Season 1" in order to keep consistency with the categories?

    • Ah, no, I'd really prefer we didn't. Standardised rules of writing generally agree that words be used over digits if you can spell the number in two words or fewer. Obviously this isn't a law and there are exceptions, but I'd personally like the wiki to be as grammatically correct as possible.

      The first Season pages and categories were set up before my time here, but I'm personally happy with the way they are as categories aren't part of prose so can reasonably be abbreviated for ease. Does that make sense? x

  • Hi Ruby! I'm Mike with FANDOM's Community Development Team! With the new OITNB season right around the corner, we were hoping that you would agree to put Discussions on the main page. At the moment, the wiki's Discussions are hard to find, so we want to make it easier to readers and contributors to get to. We would like to put something on the main page like a direct link button or a Discussions module to showcase the feature. We would also like to put a link in the navigation bar (under "Community") with a direct link to Discussions. Currently, we are enabling the Discussions feature in the app, and we are hoping to make the feature as accessible as possible.

    Let me know what you think, or if you have any questions!

    • Oh, really? I'm away for ten days and there's major change! Thanks for the clarification. I've fixed the wordmark with a bit of experimentation, so don't worry about it - thanks though, and thanks for the other work you've done :)

    • Looks good! Let me know if you need any help with anything else :)
