Dog and Gun Edit

I had wondered why it wasn't linked, but I reversed it because I'd linked to the modern Dog and Gun. Then I went to the page and saw it said it was in Wythernshawe and so thought that probably meant it's not the same pub. Wasn't sure what to do for the best but left a message on the Dog and Gun talk page. (I just saw my last edit was on one of the "Deirdre and Me" pages - goodness, it's nearly a year since Anne's death!)

Oh that reminds me, I saw the Deirdre book that came out. I haven't got up to date with chat on GB for ages so I don't know if you've mentioned it there - but I'm guessing you know the wiki is credited in the book? You must feel great about that! TellyFan (talk) 12:03, January 5, 2016 (UTC)


Sorry to bother you but I've only just got into Coronation Street by watching it from the start in 1960. I've started building up an archive of episodes using what I've scavenged off YouTube but obviously this is nowhere near complete. This Wiki has been a great help but I was wondering if you could help me at all and point me in the right direction of getting a bigger more complete collection. I know some DVDs exist for each decade but these are expensive and only offer a handful of episodes from each year. 

Hopefully you can help me out in some way, thanks!

Thanks. Added the image, was about to upload a new one (which funnily enough is similar) so thanks for pointing out the episode. AGoodPhelan (talk) 16:05, February 3, 2016 (UTC)


The message you sent to me about a few days ago Jenny Bradley had nothing to do with me the person who did this is someone with a similar name to mine so you must have got the names mixed up.  From CorrieKing

Adding an imageEdit

Seeing as you locked me out of Izzy's page, will you do me a favour and add this to her profile? It will look better than the six year old publicity shot. Thanks.VB1989 (talk) 20:54, May 27, 2016 (UTC)

==Entertainment Footers==

Emmerdale has been submitted aswell an the person who will talk to youor one of the other admins, Raylan 13 is considering dividing it into a soap drama footer aswell so if he creates it he will change the footer on your wiki to soap.

Mallett twins Edit

Hiya, Please see to check out what I did for the info on Gary and Judy's children. Having a special info sentence split between the end of 2 cast credits seemed awkward to me. I don't know if the use of asterisks with note(s) under the cast list has been done here, so please adjust the format as you think best. I just wanted to demonstrate the idea. Revert it to how it was, if you like. Thanks for your work. Cheers. derekbd (talk) 15:27, August 3, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I made the change on 27 December as well. Looks like they were credited in a number of ways in their earliest episodes, but at least the other entries are fairly simple. Be well. derekbd (talk) 15:58, August 3, 2016 (UTC)

Hello, this is a great site keep up the hard work, just a quick question quite new to this do you have any old episodes dating back to the 70s/80s that are not on DVD I cannot find any or anybody that has them, do you have any or know anyone who will? I understand your very busy but if you could reply with an answer that would be great.

Caz Hammond in TemplateEdit

Hey, I don't have permission to remove Caz Hammond from the current characters template. I removed it from her page, but I couldn't remove her name from it altogether. I think you may be able to do it? Thanks, {{SUBST:User:Layton4/autosig}} 23:13, December 2, 2016 (UTC)

Gbjerkec (talk) 20:10, February 3, 2017 (UTC)I don't appreciate your passive-agressive tone as of recently.Gbjerkec (talk) 20:10, February 3, 2017 (UTC)

Abuse of Power by AdministratorsEdit

Gbjerkec (talk) 20:24, February 9, 2017 (UTC)It strikes me as arrogant that you believe that being an administrator gives you the right to open and close matters at will. You are not the only administrator on this site, in case you haven't noticed and you do not have power over anyone because of your status. If you want me to continue editing, I suggest you change your tone, otherwise I will permanently leave this site effective Febuary 20th.Gbjerkec (talk) 20:24, February 9, 2017 (UTC)

Hjlyio (talk) 05:21, February 16, 2017 (UTC)You know, you were both acting like children. With that whole ordeal. "Forming changes without debate" is blatant fascism, but that other person only escalated things by vandalising your talk page, unprovoked and for no reason. It just shows the state we're in, I've done my fair share of stupidity, mind you but whether administrator or user, we all seem stuck in grade school.Hjlyio (talk) 05:21, February 16, 2017 (UTC)


Shouldn't Michelle's pregnancy be under the miscarriage section of the List of births and pregnancies page as technically it was a late miscarriage not a still birth? Qazwsx1972 (talk) 16:42, February 20, 2017 (UTC)

I disagree with this move. Although it was technically a miscarriage the show has emphasised that they are treating it as a stillbirth and that they want viewers to see it in the same way. This includes factors such as giving him a full name and a funeral, avoiding (from what I recall) the term "miscarriage" and actually showing him on-screen. They've even brought up the problems associated with "late miscarriage" by showing that he doesn't get a birth certificate and are essentially putting across the message that he should be given one.
Even if this might not seem like much of an argument, the practical issue that arises here is that Ruairi has an article on this wiki because he has been deemed notable enough to have one. He is in the "2017 births" category and is mentioned on the infoboxes of his parents and siblings. In other words we are reflecting how Corrie are treating him; as a stillborn and not a miscarriage.
Another big problem is that the "miscarriages" section of the "List of Births and Pregnancies" article only gives the name of the parents. Surely if Ruairi was born on-screen and has an article, he should definitely be linked to in that page. While I personally believe he sould be moved back to the "births" section, perhaps the best solution is a compromise where we create a new section called "stillbirths and late miscarriages" or something similar. The section would have a short paragraph explaining how we define "late miscarriage". Either way I think this could do with some discussion.

Amy Barlow talk pageEdit

Hi, I left a message on the Amy Barlow talk page a few weeks ago about some issues with the casting information. Would you be able to check it out? Thanks --Pascal11 (talk) 17:20, July 25, 2017 (UTC)

Nathan Curtis Edit

Hi John, I've been looking at special pages, namely uncategorised pages and noticed his LoA page is uncategorised. Normally the category would be 'List of main character appearances', however some points suggest he is main i.e. 2016 debuts and current character categories but because he doesn't have the info box or be included in the list of main characters page, one may suggest he is guest. What do you think?1234567jack (talk) 21:10, July 27, 2017 (UTC)

Return your help Edit

Hi Jtomlin1uk you help me out a while ago with finding viewing figures for EastEnders and I just had a thought I would try and help you, on EastEnders Wikia we have an automatic episode counter on the front page. This is an automated counter that adds an episode to the counter after it has broadcast. I was wondering if you would like it on your wiki as well obviously it might need some tweaking as its designed for 4 episode a week and may need amended time to time when the schedule is slightly different but on the whole its automated. Thanks Kelvin 101 (talk) 20:04, August 13, 2017 (UTC)

Gemma's age Edit

On tonight's episode (Monday 28th August), Gemma says she is 26 that mean Gemma was born in 1991. To let you know because the page is locked. (Ednasharon24534)

Ray Langton Edit

I understand why you undid my edits. But I must remind you, you've forgotten to remove the infobox image from the other information section - a page can't have the same image twice, and I can't do it either because the page is protected from my computer. Followtheyellowbrickroad (talk) 09:26, September 15, 2017 (UTC)

Re:Return Edit

Thanks, I felt like making a change to Andy's page adding in some relevant information and taking out some that was overly detailed. I assume that guest characters such as Pete (Micky Dacks) who have few appearances can have more detail in them as I have done on that page? Notdoppler (talk) 23:30, October 30, 2017 (UTC)

Tommy Harris DOB Source Edit

Hi Jtomlin1uk!

After Angela's arrest, Katy takes her bank card to buy food.  She panics because she doesn't know the PIN number. Craig says "Dad's birthday, 8164." (Episode 5996 (4th April 2005)). As British date format is day/month/year, Tommy's DOB would be 8 January 1964.

I should have sourced it in my edit summary.

Sorry about that!

Why This Wiki is Broken: An Open Letter to AdministratorsEdit

H3mh7b (talk) 17:49, December 9, 2017 (UTC)How is this wiki made to expand if we must first spend time asking for permission, and then despite our efforts to grow this wiki to it's potential size, one of you administrators can just come along and delete all of our progress, no questions asked? I've done a bit of research, and in the past, when people ask reasonable questions about why their work as been deleted, you simply reply that you are administrators and therefore, you are in control. When they continue to protest, you block them. This doesn't seem like the most efficient way of doing things.
That isn't to say that my page should not have been deleted, but to do without question, especially as it seems to be following in a similar "approved" page, (Suicides) does not seem reasonable, as the page I created helps readers to navigate. It isn't something that could stir up counter-productive debate as in the case of Murderers as the rules are extremely straight forward. I am as ready as the next person to dedicate my time to growing this wiki to the height of its potential, but I don't see how deleting pages, simply because they weren't "approved" prior to their creation helps to do this. I have no choice but to conclude that you simply like to be in control.
I am willing to hear your side of the story, but bear in mind that I do have my limits. I want to work with you, not against you, but at the moment, you are forcing me to do the latter. I hope we can work this out, but if I feel that this model has not been approved, I want you to understand that I will contact the appropriate channels.H3mh7b (talk) 17:49, December 9, 2017 (UTC)
H3mh7b (talk) 23:52, December 9, 2017 (UTC)My intent was not to threaten, it was to warn and to make my case clear. I hope that I am understood. I thought that I had asked appropriately, clearly I hadn't. David said "without approval or clear precedent" I thought that I had the latter, and when I did ask for permission, no response was recieved.

When I say "broken", I mean in recent times. I am glad to hear of your success, I just thought that you knew your responsibility.

Your rules appear to serve no clear purpose other than that of control. This is an oligarchy, don't pretend it isn't. "All parties". Is it not telling that more than one editor has had complaints? The appropriate channels may not do anything, but they shouldn't have to. This is your wiki, do you honestly want it to stand for what is seen as a facist counter-productive model that is only helpful if you are an administrator or bureaucrat? The only way to make significant progress in expanding this wiki is if you are one of the higher-ups, so to speak.

All that I ask is that you take this into consideration. I have spoken with many other editors, and they feel the same. I would like to work with you, but this is going to be difficult if things do not change.H3mh7b (talk) 23:52, December 9, 2017 (UTC)

Carla Edit

Hi there, looking at double redirects you can see that Carla's page is Carla Connor but the talk page is Carla Tilsley. Assuming they should both be Connor thought I'd ask before I change it? 1234567jack (talk) 12:45, December 10, 2017 (UTC)

Lack of ResponseEdit

H3mh7b (talk) 03:58, December 14, 2017 (UTC)I want to continue this dialogue and hopefully work toward a solution, if you do not reply I have no choice but to assume that you simply do not wish to admit what are, in my eyes, blatent issues with this wiki.H3mh7b (talk) 03:58, December 14, 2017 (UTC)

H3mh7b (talk) 04:24, December 20, 2017 (UTC)So... is that it, then? Is this the "professionalism" you speak of? Can I go forward with these categories, your lordship, or am I not permitted to? Do you want this wiki to prosper and grow, or is this about power? I'm sorry, but I've reached my wits end. This goes beyond giving instructions, this is hindering the growth of your wiki. The Breaking Bad, and Star wars wikis are superior and far more advanced, why? Because their admins don't act like roadblocks.H3mh7b (talk) 04:24, December 20, 2017 (UTC)

Portable Infoboxes Edit

Hey! I'm here representing FANDOM's Vanguard team. We're users who volunteer to help communities adopt to new technologies and features, like content portability. We've identified Coronation Street Wiki as a high priority for introducing the Portable Infobox tool, which has a lot of benefits for your community. Rather than get into all of the metrics and numbers (though I can present some of those if you're interested), I'll keep it simple: I'd like to reproduce as much as possible the look and feel of your desktop infoboxes in global CSS, and work to update the Infobox templates themselves so that they can be accessible on any current and future platform. Maintaining them if you want to make changes should be very simple.

I've recreated both Infobox Episode and Infobox character and showcased them here, which gives them both a similar design while still keeping the same color scheme. Of course, I can also just replicate the original designs of both completely. I'd like to get these boxes working on your community if this is fine with you. Also, if you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks!--V Technobliterator TC 23:28, March 14, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for getting back to me! I didn't see "Friday" hyphenated on mine as it depends on the browser size; however I've added CSS that should stop that from happening. I've also used the draft infoboxes on just Episode 1 (9th December 1960) and Ken Barlow so you can see what they look like on the articles to make a judgment (revert after you've looked of course). Please let me know what you think!--V Technobliterator TC 00:03, March 15, 2018 (UTC)
Hmm, it shouldn't still be hyphenated after that edit. Try hard refreshing (ctrl + F5, or clearing cache first) and see if it's still hyphenated, if it is I'll try another fix. And sure, I'll ask the opinions of a few other admins-- it was just easier to message one person!--V Technobliterator TC 00:59, March 15, 2018 (UTC)

Coronation Street explosions. Edit

Hi, sorry to bother you but I'm currently working on an explosions compilation for Emmerdale and Coronation Street to really see how many there have been.

Pat Phelan's DeathEdit


As I am unable to edit for some reason I was wondering if you could edit the date of death on "Pat Phelan"s page? I was wondering if  you could change it from "28th May 2018" to "26th May 2018" as I have recently gone over the episodes and have discovered Pat was killed the day after Zac was born (25th May 2018) and also the day after Roberts stag evening and Michelles hen evening (also on the 25th May 2018). It is rather confusing as all the episodes fromlast week were all set o a storyline of only 2 days. I hope you see what I mean!

Kind Regard

Memorable/Notable Dialogue Edit

Hello, if you still add this section to the episode pages, could you please add this to 9512? '''[[Tracy Barlow]]''': "Hey, [[Steve MacDonald|Steve]], I have found us the most perfect wedding venue." '''[[Eileen Phelan]]''': "Billy Smart's circus." '''Tracy Barlow''': "And where did you and psycho [[Pat Phelan|Pat]] get married? Chamber O' Horrors?"

Hi! Could you please change the last section about Iain MacLeod taking over from Oates to say August instead of June (which is what David guessed), as the page is locked. Thanks Danielroxheaps 01:28, July 28, 2018 (UTC)

I think Iain did take over in June? That is when Kate left, and while his first credited episodes will begin airing in August - he took over for her as soon as she departed. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 01:37, July 28, 2018 (UTC)

BFI Archive and ratings Edit

Hi there, I'm visiting the BFI Archive next week for university study and I'm also planning to look at TV ratings as I want to check out EastEnders single showings while I'm there to determine once and for all it was not beating Coronation Street as is often made out (and some other ratings I want to find too). I remember you were able to get the Christmas Day Coronation Street 1987 figure there, which source did you get it from? Was it from the IBA Archive on microfiche or Broadcast magazine?

If there are any CS ratings that you would like me to find I can try my best. LewieVHS (talk) 14:18, August 13, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for replying! Oh that's good, and yes I know the microfiche is held off site as I've looked at their catalogue. I'm just unsure of what to search for the IBA archive on the catalogue. No problem, thought it was worth asking but I'm sure you scoured all of the ratings with a fine toothcomb! LewieVHS (talk) 15:38, August 13, 2018 (UTC)

1st October 1975Edit

Hi do you happen to have this episode? It's quite a rare one and I can't seem to find it anywhere online. Thanks. Danielroxheaps 01:54, August 15, 2018 (UTC)

OK, thank you so much. If there's anything I can do to help on this wikia, let me know :) Danielroxheaps 09:15, August 15, 2018 (UTC)

thanks mate for adding Lewis :) (Spice boys (talk) 10:24, August 20, 2018 (UTC)

mate can you please put Lewis on the past offenders (Spice boys (talk) 21:47, August 23, 2018 (UTC)

ok thanks mate :) (Spice boys (talk) 21:57, August 23, 2018 (UTC)

Longest Running Characters pageEdit

Surely this page is only updated at the end of each month for all the character totals? But it should be updated as soon as a character returns, as I did with the likes of Alex and Wendy Neeson earlier this year. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 19:08, September 7, 2018 (UTC)

I didn't notice you had done that. As the narrative at the top states an "as off" date, it should reflect that date please.--Jtomlin1uk (talk) 19:30, September 7, 2018 (UTC)

Reg Holdsworth Edit

I was going through an Emmerdale spin-off movie, The Dingles in Venice and I found that Ken Morley actually appears in the film (set in Venice) as Reg Holdsworth. I was going to add this but was unsure on how you wanted to do this so I decided just to message you. - Danielroxheaps 10:32, September 28, 2018 (UTC)

Brilliant. I was about to create that spin-off page, I'll do it shortly and let you know when it's up. Thanks - Danielroxheaps 10:41, September 28, 2018 (UTC)
The page has been created here. Is it possible that when we create a Reg Holdsworth page on the Emmerdale wikia, we could have a "See also" section linking to Reg's page on Corriepedia? Thanks. - Danielroxheaps 10:57, September 28, 2018 (UTC)

I saw that you have made some edits to classic Coronation Street episodes. I have been searching the net high and dry to find episodes pre-1976. I was wondering where you have found the information for these episodes, do you own any? I have the whole collection of EastEnders episodes and a fair few of Emmerdale Classics. I'm now just looking for Corrie episodes pre-1976.

We've been given access by ITV to a collection of episodes held by Kaleidoscope and have also viewed the archive held by the BFI.--Jtomlin1uk (talk) 18:15, October 15, 2018 (UTC)

(2hotStreet (talk) 11:57, October 22, 2018 (UTC)) 

Have you got any episodes from 1974 that aren't on VHS releases or DVDs 

Please see my answer immediately above.--Jtomlin1uk (talk) 12:47, October 22, 2018 (UTC)

Community GardenEdit

Hi, just wanted to let you know that there was an incorrect month on the list of appearances page for the community garden. I admit the first time I accidentally changed the wrong one, but the error was still there when you changed it back. The error was gone after the second attempt. Sorry if you got angry whilst I kept changing it! :D

Lack of evidenceEdit

So apparently there is no evidence Vera Hopkins and family live at the residence I presented, even though it says they moved there in the biography. AlmightyDino (talk) 14:26, January 27, 2019 (UTC)


Hi Jtomlin1uk, have you got an email I could contact you on? If you don't want to share your email on here, feel free to contact mine - Once we get in contact with each other via email you will know why I couldn't share it on here; it's confidential information, look forward to hearing from you.

Current characters templateEdit

Hi, I don't know if you're the person to mention this to but Nicola Rubinstein is still present on the current character template box (at the bottom of the current character pages). Also, should Bertie Osbourne not be added as he is included on the List of current characters page. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 22:44, February 24, 2019 (UTC)

I've taken care of it. David (talk) 19:15, February 25, 2019 (UTC)

Graham HaberfieldEdit

I saw your edit summary regarding his date of death. At first I thought it was strange that most sources listed 18th October but 17th was accepted, however since doing a little digging I found a scan of the Glasgow Herald from 18 October which mentions his death "yesterday" and a Flickr post from someone claiming to be his cousin who also mentioned 17th October as his date of death. Funny how things like this can slip through the net. Sorry if I caused any trouble. Sam Talk 20:56, March 2, 2019 (UTC)

I do. I'm an admin on a Wiki as well and while we don't insist on edit summaries (and admittedly I don't always leave them) it certainly does help when people use them, especially new editors, but granted most users leave them. On a similar note to our initial discussion, if it's not too much trouble, I saw on William Roache's page that it says he was born in Ilkeston, but most articles I've seen say he was born in Basford, Notts. and grew up in Ilkeston. Have you or any of the other admins seen a copy of, say, his birth certificate or registry? I don't want to amend anything as it's been there for ten years but if you or one of the admins could clarify I'd be grateful, but don't go out of your way for it if it's too much hassle. Thanks. Sam Talk 19:23, March 3, 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for clearing that up. Regarding other sources I was generally disregarding Wikipedia, I meant more from news articles.IMDb has never been used on our Wiki for anything other than confirming an actor's role in a game but obviously we work with far less source material due to the nature of our content. That's why I asked if you'd seen a copy of his birth certificate because having seen your comments to other users and your citing the source in your edit summary you do go to great depths with your research. I was a casual visitor for a few years before I started editing on here and I've always been impressed with the amount of information on here, covering nearly 60 years of ever-increasing content is no mean feat and I know for a fact I'd never be able to keep up, so I do genuinely admire you and your fellow admins for the work you do.

Question from corrie fan, but can't find informationEdit

Hello, do you know who caused the 2010 tram crash, because I've only been watching the show since 2017 and have watched many old episodes back too, but I don't know who or what caused the tram crash. I know that it started with The Joinery explosion, but I don't know who caused that. Dionhosseini801 (talk) 21:25, April 29, 2019 (UTC)

Nobody "caused" it, but Nick Tilsley didn't report a problem with the gas and was therefore blamed by people such as Claire Peacock. However, Rita Tanner stuck up for him as he had saved her life after noticing that she was trapped in the Kabin. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 20:47, April 29, 2019 (UTC)

Question Edit

Hello Sorry to bother you but I just wondered why you deleted my note about the character Gordon Blinkhorn. He was featured in an episode that morning on the old Corrie so I thought the note might be helpful. I'd like to know what my mistake was so that I don't repeat it! I'm not very technical - not even sure I'm doing this right! Thank you Denise (MissK28) MissK28 (talk) 12:35, May 25, 2019 (UTC)


Just wondering if you know the answer to this.

The epiosde numbers listed for 1991. I there a missing number after ep 3406 as it jumped to 3408. I do see name names and two productions codes. So maybe its just a double ep. Would you be able to confirm. If so could it be better to list it as 81/82 or add 3706/3407. The numbers dont match up with the eps number list If this is the case.

If you could confirm. I am currently use your guide when i rec the eps from itv3.

My email is

Hi Amanda, I would prefer to answer here rather than by email. As the notes for Episode 3406 (6th July 1992) state, this and episode 3407 were edited together and shown as one hour-long episode with one set of end credits back in 1992. This means that the viewer's perception was that it was a single extended episode of the programme. For some reason, ITV3 chose not to show this version but instead the two separate instalments were shown (Granada Plus did the same in 2003). Our convention is to try and find a compromise between what was produced and what was originally transmitted and we think stating the two production codes on the episode page, but also stating that this was the 81st episode of the year to be shown suits that compromise. We face similar issues with double episodes, or extended episodes, going right back to Episode 1026 (18th November 1970) where two scripts were hurriedly edited down to one just prior to recording to produce a single-half hour standard instalment. Stating that these were the 84th and 85th episodes of 1970 wouldn't be right as viewers saw nothing unusual or different on transmission. --Jtomlin1uk (talk) 08:06, June 12, 2019 (UTC)

Building pages Edit

So I wanted to do a page for Gary Windass' construction. However I would like to know how you get the contents box in case it is needed. Also do you mind that every page I make lacks an image? Grandpa Lo68 (talk) 16:36, July 2, 2019 (UTC) I have worked out how to infobox link and defaultsort now, however I have been asked due to taking so long to figure it out and missing essential info (which I had said I would look up for future pages), and having all of the pages I make lack images (which you had told me was fine) not to create anymore new articles. Just thought I would inform you of this as now because I am now limited to editing old character pages that go unprotected. I also received a ban for failing to link infoboxes, which I would have had to have waited out if I did not make the decision to flout the second day ban from David, who had said he would let me off that once (and only once) as I had no clue that doing so was a bannable offence, however due to this I learnt how to defaultsort and ask admins for help on things if and when needed. So do I have your permission to try and make new pages with functional infobox links and defaultsorts that lack images and potentially lack List Of Appearances? This is due to the fact that they are proving hard to do on IOS devices at this very moment in time. Thank you. Grandpa Lo68 (talk) 10:35, July 3, 2019 (UTC)

Grandpa Lo68, JT is on holiday at the moment so won't be able to get back to you for several weeks. David (talk) 12:26, July 3, 2019 (UTC)

Oh I had wondered where he was, as I knew he was the site creator, No Offence here but I did wonder as to why you took charge. Am I allowed to create new pages after the episode pages have caught up? I can defaultsort and infobox now unless I do list of appearances as a fandom user on another device I cannot do those and I do not have the best access to images. Thank you for your potential response, also most of DC Ahmadi has now been given the detail it needs for the character page. Grandpa Lo68 (talk) 12:38, July 3, 2019 (UTC)

New Analytics + SEO TestEdit

hey there, I'm the Fandom Wiki manager assigned to this wiki. I'm here to help and support this community as a direct point of contact and liaison to Fandom staff. If you ever have a question or need support in an area, don't hesitate to contact me. I'll see what I can do or get the right people to help. There are a few things I'd like to let you know!

In case you didn't hear, a new Analytics dashboard has just been introduced! This should give a clearer understanding of search terms viewers are using and which devices they come from.

All you need to do is visit Special:Analytics.

Help:Analytics dashboard can also be used for more details about the Analytics dashboard.

Additionally, I'm here to let you know that Fandom plans to run a test here starting this week. It aims at improving the search enginge ranking for our communities. Yours and a few other communities have been selected for this test.

Some details: We will be automatically redirecting anonymous users who land on file pages to the first article page that the file is used on. Our hope is that this will help anonymous users (who are usually clueless about wikis) find what they're looking for more easily. During the test, we'll measure whether this has a postive impact on search enginge rankings.

Logged-in users will see absolutely no change, so you may not notice anything of this test - but we figured it's best to let you know, in case anonymous users reach out to you with questions.

If you have any of your own, let me know! -- TimeShade (Talk) 19:34, August 9, 2019 (UTC)

Introducing Editor RewardsEdit

Hi Jtomlin1uk, in case you haven't read the Community Central blog from earlier this week, Fandom officially announced the Editor Rewards program. Fandom has been looking for ways to give back to users for the work they've done. Recently they have done things such as buy movie tickets, or offer products from their favorite fandoms. Stay tuned as perhaps you, your co-admins, or other contributors for this wiki may even be eligible!If you have any questions, feel free to comment on the blog so the Editor Experience team can answer directly.-- TimeShade (Talk) 23:49, August 31, 2019 (UTC)

Re:Thank YouEdit

Hi, thanks for the message. The only time I really have an issue with the cast lists is when a page gets protected, particularly episode pages immediately after they've been made. For example, I'll want to edit 21st August part one in the near future to specify Bertie's casting details. Also, I just wanted to check if you're still okay for me to drop an email if I need any future assistance (I hope you don't mind but I've removed my email from this page).--Pascal11 (talk) 13:01, September 3, 2019 (UTC)


Thank you for your thank you note! Happy to help, even in a small way. Keggie (talk) 19:19, September 17, 2019 (UTC)

Eileen Derbyshire's DoBEdit

Hi there! I noticed you reverted an edit of mine on the 6th October page and protected the page to prevent the edit happening again despite the fact that the edit was correct - Eileen was born in 1931, as stated in the following trusted birth record source --> [1] - Kind regards, Sirius (talk) 09:41, October 15, 2019 (UTC)

Chinese "version" of Corrie. Edit

Hi! Not sure if this will be of any use to the wiki as it's not a proper Chinese spin-off of Corrie, but I discovered that ITV and some of the Corrie team helped a team in Beijing create a soap opera in China, based off Coronation Street. The first episode was premiered in August 2000 but the show's viewing figures tanked and was only at half of Granada's presumed figures of 50,000,000 at late 2000. The programme has been long since cancelled, however I can't find anything on a date. The latest article I could find was from January 2002, where it is mentioned that the show is continuing, but the viewing figures are still low.


Danielroxheaps 09:48, November 3, 2019 (UTC)

Oh, wow. That's quite good of them to do considering how much of a competitor EastEnders would turn out to be - especially for Emmerdale Farm who would often go head to head with EastEnders in ratings due to being on at the same time. I think either the Emmerdale Farm budget was given another boost, or the producer tried another (successful) tactic at ensuring that Emmerdale Farm would win in the ratings, as the show became a bit more darker with the brutal motorbike/car accident in April 1985, a fire in February 1985 (aired on the same day as EastEnders's pilot episode), the return of the show's major villain and an armed robbery in October. BBC ended up changing EastEnders's schedule because of Emmerdale Farm always achieving higher viewing figures. Danielroxheaps 21:14, November 3, 2019 (UTC)

Global TaxonomyEdit

Hey there, it's been a while since I checked in. Just letting you know about global taxonomy from a couple weeks ago if you haven't given it a read yet.

Basically, we're working to better personalize recommendations much like how Netflix does based on what you have watched. If you like to learn more, feel free to check out the blog or ask any questions.

Protected episodeEdit

Episode 8808 (1st January 2016) has been protected since 2018. It needs to be edited to reflect the fact it is no longer Emily's last appearance. Skteosk (talk) 00:47, January 12, 2020 (UTC)

UCP UpdatesEdit

Hey Jtomlin1uk, I'm checking in to update you with the latest UCP updates! We've lately had a barrage of updates including new profiles and message walls, as well as the new wiki creation process.

For new profiles:

  • It will focus more on the user, rather than the stats

Wiki creation:

  • To prevent duplicate wikis, there will be a process if it detects an overlap which a new wiki would be flagged for approval.

You can learn more in the respective blogs which I linked above. If you have any questions, feel free to drop one on the blog or on my talk page/message wall. —TIMESHADE @fandom |Talk/Wall| - |C| 21:55, March 8, 2020 (UTC)
