Does anybody else think that the featured article should be at the top of the page? Maybe somebody could try making the top header smaller and sticking it to above the table and using the white space above Latest Developments for the featured article. I hope that makes sense, I tried to visualize it. Just a thought. Malan89 20:25, 25 March 2007 (CDT)

Alex to migrate to main page?

I know this has already been debated, but I think that Alex should be moved to the Main Page very soon. Some people have said she shouldn't because she's not a blogger like Bree, Daniel, Gemma and Jonas; I still consider her a main character. No one ever really said that all main characters have to be bloggers...

No i don't believe that she should, Because the main characters on the main page, are in all or most of the videos and shes not in that many, I think that it would just be safe to keep her in the supporting characters section, unless she becomes a character that should be put on the main page.

But thats my personal opinion.


Well, I say we should give it another two or three weeks, then decide. --XAccordianGuyx

In my opinion we should change the title from "Main Charcters" to "Bloggers" to try and avoid this confussion, because you can argue forever as to what constitutes a main character, as seen above in the "Gemma" section, with people thinking Bree's Parents should be in there. I think we should go down the route of simplicity and have it as bloggers, since these are the charcters we are connected to, since we see it through there point of view. Just my opinion. Coffeeaddict 18:22, 6 April 2007 (CDT)
in my opinion, there are no "bloggers" anymore. the "Blogs" have just become plot points, which are posted as episodes of the lonelygirl15 series, under the lonelygirl15 productions' account on revver and youtube-Misty 18:34, 6 April 2007 (CDT)
It's true that they are not blogs in the traditional sense (hehe, it's funny using the word traditional about blogs, anyway back to my point) but I cannot think of a better word. Thinking about it "Episodes of the lonelygirl15 series" is all they ever have been, done in blog form or not. Anyway I think that Alex should not be there, and the title should be changed to Bloggers, since the Teen Angst Adventure Gang are still the only individuals who post videos (the order and all it's factions discounted) and they are the people who give us the plot, Aunt Alex is part of the plot but BDJ are the plot. Anyway just my opinions, apologies for the long and ramblingness of them. Coffeeaddict 18:58, 6 April 2007 (CDT)
I think that if Alex is the topic of another post or two, then she should be added to the list of main characters.--Malan89 11:03, 8 April 2007 (CDT)
Lets see if Alex goes with them, when they leave mexico, if she does, then I agree, put her on the front page -Misty 15:34, 9 April 2007 (CDT)

Okay, I think maybe it's time for Alex to hit the main page - she posted her first blog. Yes, I know it's officially a DB vid but it's still technically by Alex. All Daniel really did was hold the camera :P Anyone else agree that she should now be moved? --XAccordianGuyx

In theory I agree with you, but I think it's still premature. It's possible that BD&J, will take off, and that will be the last we hear from Alex. -misty 19:39, 11 April 2007 (CDT)
Not sure I understand the obsession with moving Alex to the main page. It's not you personally, AccordianGuy--people have been anticipating this since the Uncle Dan days. I think it's a little premature and we should give the character a chance to really become "main" before adding her. In the meantime, though, if you feel like searching for some nice picture of her that we can use, you can go ahead and do so. You can post them here for others to chime in on which they like. We'll need to pick an image before adding her anyway, so might as well get a start. OwenIsCool 20:56, 11 April 2007 (CDT)
Well given this latest video It doesn't look likely tha alex is gonna become a main character -misty 00:39, 14 April 2007 (CDT)

Bree's new picture

what video is Bree's new picture from? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Garfwog (talkcontribs) .

Snow Angels.--Jonpro 22:54, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

177-Bree.jpgHow does everyone feel about making this the pic of Bree on the main page? -misty 15:13, 20 April 2007 (CDT)

no way that' a really bad picture. the main reason i asked where her new picture is from is because that's the prettiest she's ever looked you can't ever get rid of it! -Garfwog 18:35, 26 April 2007 (CDT)

NBR on main page?

JayHenry put Nikki Bowers latest video on the back on th main page, after I deleted it . I thhought that the main page and the video list were only supposed to include canon videos. on the list of videos talk it was decided that even the tachyon and brother videos don't belong. So can we get clear criteria as far as what gets included and what doesn't -misty 22:01, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

I added it following the conversation at Talk:Following the Drugs!! - NBR Investigates. Nikki's video is included because it's difficult to understand the series without it. The List of Lonelygirl15 videos reflects those videos that appear on the left sidebar of But the Main Page does not follow this same guideline. Indeed, we always added Tachyon and Brother videos to the main page. --JayHenry 22:16, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

Video Descriptions

Just wondering, as this seems slightly better: have we ever considered writing our own descriptions to the new videos instead of copying and pasting the ones used when the videos are posted to Revver? We could make these descriptions shorter and more useful. When the videos are posted, they usually don't summarize the video because why would Bree, etc. tell you exactly what the video was about before you watched it? For an encyclopedia, however, it seems better to summarize. --Andy 20:39, 14 April 2007 (CDT)

Yeah, I seem to remember that we decided that writing our own descriptions would be better. Just most of the time no one does probably because it's easier to just copy/paste the description from the video. If you (or anyone) wants to start writing better descriptions, then go for it as far as I'm concerned.--Jonpro 21:30, 14 April 2007 (CDT)
Well, I changed them. However, I'm not sure if I like them or not -- so if anyone has any improvements/re-writes which would make them better, please add them! I think they're slightly longer than the original descriptions, which is bad in my opinion, since I already think the right column is too long. Anyways, if you guys totally don't like them feel free to revert. --Andy 22:11, 14 April 2007 (CDT)
Personally, I think the new descriptions are a tad too spoilerly. For someone who occasionally sees the LGPedia update before getting a chance to SEE the occasional video, it kinda bites. Any chance the descriptions can be less spoilish? -- Phoenician
Hmm, good point. I'll try to work on that if I happen to write any more descriptions.--Jonpro 14:33, 12 May 2007 (CDT)


Some time last night Smosh overtook LG15 and became the most-subscribed channel on all of YouTube. Lonelygirl15 had been at the top for over 7 months. Does anyone think we should mention this somewhere? Maybe in recent developments? Maybe just in the lonelygirl15 article? I see that OIC already uploaded "Image:Smosh_ian_and_anthony.JPG". Thoughts? --JayHenry 10:22, 26 April 2007 (CDT)

Hm, well I just went and checked.. LG is currently 17 ahead of smosh... and still in the lead! :P --Zoey 11:24, 26 April 2007 (CDT)
You have to check their profile pages. The page for most-subscribed only updates once a day or so. At this moment Smosh has 91684 and LG15 has 91638. When the page updates next and Smosh is 50 or so ahead should we mention it? --JayHenry 11:34, 26 April 2007 (CDT)
Ah, okay thanks for clarifying that. I say it's worth a mention. Not like.. a whole page on its own.. but def. a blurb on the front page :) --Zoey 11:37, 26 April 2007 (CDT)

maddy : (

maddy's dead! i think that's important enough to put on the main page, even if she wasn't canon. opinions, anyone? --Skeeta 18:55, 30 April 2007 (CDT)

It is shocking, but I don't think it relates to the LG15 storyline enough to warrant a mention on the Main Page. I have a feeling that we're going to hear more from Maddy in the future so this may not be as big as it looks like right now.--Jonpro 01:15, 1 May 2007 (CDT)

"Encyclopedia" section update?

I think we should either update or organize the "Encyclopedia" section more. I really do think this, and it is a strong suggestion. Anyone else agree? SilverBULLETx3 15:35, 7 May 2007 (CDT)

I think it's a good idea. Any suggestions on what we should include?--Jonpro 16:09, 7 May 2007 (CDT)
I know this has been mentioned before, but perhaps the Featured Article should be right below the Main Characters. After the Breeniverse Timeline is improved, we could include that. Maybe the links to the List of Videos and List of Characters? SilverBULLETx3 16:12, 7 May 2007 (CDT)
Not sure what you mean by all that. The link to "List of videos" is already where it should reasonably be found--on the videos column. The List of Characters link is already below the BDJ table. So are you just suggesting we add the Breeniverse Timeline, when it's been fixed up? And then move the FA right under the characters table, pushing everything else down?OwenIsCool 16:15, 7 May 2007 (CDT)
I definitely think we need to spruce up that section. There's a lot of pages on the wiki that are virtually impossible to find unless you know to look. Ideally, almost every page should be reachable from the Main Page in only one or two clicks. The question is, how do we identify those good pages and get them better placement? --JayHenry 17:02, 7 May 2007 (CDT)
I think an both topical and alphabetical indexes, would be helpful to make make articles more accessible. there should be links to both on the main page. -12:37, 8 May 2007 (CDT)

I think we need to add something for the Characters.. like a link to the new Characters page? And of course my Relationships page which I have been so vying for xP And hm, I think we should add links to the Notable Details and theories and speculation categories, although maybe we should have pages summarizing this instead of just linking to the cats. themselves. Really, other than that though, I think the encyclopedia section contains just about everything we'd need? Yeah, I just think adding those links would help. And if people agree, etc, I'm happy to make summary pages for notable details and theories and speculation. Just er, let me know if its something that sounds good and I'll get right on that!

That's what I was thinking. Yeah, the descriptions stink, but hey, it's a start. What do people think of this? --Zoey 13:37, 8 May 2007 (CDT)

Here's what I think about those, Zoey.
  • Breeniverse — Yes, but currently it is nominated for a cleanup and it is a stub, so we should probably improve it very much so first.
  • The Story So Far... — Yes.
  • Characters — Yes, especially after the awesomely new redesign!
  • Relationships — A very good page. :) Yes.
  • Locations — Yes, after a possible redesign? Currently the page is looking a bit shabby. Perhaps we could fix it up like we did the List of Videos and just recently the List of Characters?
  • Bree's religion — Yes, a very big part in the plot.
  • Theories and Speculation — Yes, speculation is very much so important, especially for newcomers to understand it all.
  • Notable details — No. They are tiny little details that are probably not worth mentioning.
  • Behind The Scenes — I agree with this one.
  • LG15 Site Features — No. The site features are not plot essential AT ALL except for the one time Bree had a chat.
  • Unofficial spinoffs — Sure. This might get newcomers excited and they'll start videoblogging as fan fiction.

And I agree, topical and alphabetical indexes would be so great. Maybe we should explain that LGPedia is a wiki that everyone can edit? Or is that already in the top part? SilverBULLETx3 15:22, 8 May 2007 (CDT)

That list is looking good. The only thing I would take out is Characters, and that's because there's already a link to that where it says "List of Characters" right under the BDJ table--you can't get much more obvious than that. OwenIsCool 16:28, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
I would say keep the site features. They're not plot essential, but LG15 is an interactive experience with more than just plot. I could go either way on notable details. On the one hand, they are sorta fun; on the other hand, by definition trivial. --JayHenry 16:34, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
True, OIC, I forgot about the "Full list of Characters" link. I see your point about the interactive experience - remember when we helped Daniel crack Tachyon's code? Interactive experience right there. I stand my point though about the notable details - sure, they're fun for us lonelycracks, but do we really need a link to them? SilverBULLETx3 17:02, 8 May 2007 (CDT)
Here is my revamped Character Box for your consideration... Main_Page/redesign. Psmith 07:28, 10 May 2007 (CDT)
The colors look all right in the Characters page, but I think they're a little clash-y in the character box. I would leave it as is. OwenIsCool 10:47, 10 May 2007 (CDT)
Okay, I think we should put up Zoey's new list -- but I don't think we should link to category pages. So unless we create a home page for "notable details" and for "Theories and speculation" those links should go. --JayHenry 10:40, 10 May 2007 (CDT)
Um, yeah I'm working on a Theories and Speculation page right now, although its totally hideous and in progress atm because I haven't had much time to sit down and actually do it. If anyone wants to help... :P But uh, hopefully later today I'll get a chance to work on the page and make it look much prettier and ready for use on the Main Page. --Zoey 10:45, 10 May 2007 (CDT)

Okay, so I think this is the latest decision:

I think that's modified to what everyone said. I (with the help of Psmith, have gotten the Theories and Speculation page looking halfway decent, although I'd love opinons on that before we go "live" with it (aka put it on the front page). But yeah, once that is worked out, does everyone agree with having the encyclopedia section as above? The majority seemed to vote against having a "Notable Details" page, so I didn't bother. I can still try to do that, though, if people prefer. Anyways, it seemed like this was the way we decided to go, just making sure! =) --Zoey 14:17, 10 May 2007 (CDT)

Just to update, I went ahead and created a Notable Details page because really, even if it's not linked to from the front page, I think it will be useful. I do still think it should be added to the main page though... underneath Theories and Speculation. Um, I haven't heard anything to the contrary, so if I don't hear something soon, I'll go ahead and update the main page? If people end up deciding against it later, we can always revert.  :P But yeah, please let me know your thoughts!! --Zoey 19:37, 10 May 2007 (CDT)

I think it looks great. --JayHenry 14:28, 12 May 2007 (CDT)

I think it looks great too, but why neglect calling the Trio "Bloggers"?? -- Phoenician

We didn't call them bloggers before, but I think it just looks better without the "main characters" box above it -misty 00:21, 13 May 2007 (CDT)
It looks awesome, misty. silverX3 08:46, 13 May 2007 (CDT)

Time for a new featured article

Ok the "New Girl" storyline has played itself out, and the article isn't the kind that really lasts beyond that. So it's time for a new one. -misty 11:23, 14 May 2007 (CDT)
