Ray Langton, last appearance in 1978Edit

Karen

I think there's a discrepancy in Ray appearances in 1978. His list of appearances says that his last of 1978 is Episode1845 (20th September 1978). But that ep page doesn't say his last appearance until... 2005, and he's in the cast list of the next episode, 1846. I can't investigate further right now. Thanks for your help. derekbd (talk) 22:46, April 24, 2017 (UTC)

Oh darn. Disregard. I should have looked on the laptop and not just the phone. Apologies. I do wish there was an android app, but that's a whole other matter! Best wishes to you. derekbd (talk) 23:20, April 24, 2017 (UTC)

Daniel and Sinead Edit

On 8th February, Sinead wasn't Daniel's girlfriend where they slept together for first time. Daniel and Sinead wasn't boyfriend and girlfriend at time. Sinead was Chesney's girlfriend when she sleep with Daniel. (Ednasharon24534)

Is there really a need for the rude comments?Edit

I really don't think there's a need to leave rude comments such as "Corrected formatting - yet again" when editing other people's work. Yet again? Yes, there has been several times where you've had to make ammendments after I'd updated the appearance lists of certain characters but there's really no need to make comments like that. At least I'm bothering to keep character appearances updated (those that I can anyway). I've noticed you haven't done any work on current character's appearance lists in over a month!

Hi Karen

I see you removed my 'real life' contribution about the Elvis concert in 1977. My apologies - I didn't realise that was only for real life events involving the street and its actors etc. It's just that the concert was fresh in my mind because I was actually there, and myself and five others who were also there have just met up to discuss old times; I'm still buzzing after meeting one of them for the first time in forty years!

Louise Connor Edit

Hi,


I'm really confused on the date of death of Louise Connor. The date was originally 18th December, but in the episode from 2015, Aidan says it was Christmas Day 22 years previously.

Danielroxheaps (talk) 11:15, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

Which episode are you referring to? In Episode 8797 (18th December 2015) - Aidan states it's 22 years to the day. Karen2310 (talk) 11:20, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

Katie McDonald Edit

Should Katie not be number 14 on the on-screen deaths list, being an unseen character?


Thanks

Danielroxheaps (talk) 06:27, August 1, 2017 (UTC)


Also should Paul Connor Jr be moved to late miscarriages as he was stillborn?

Hiya

Please can you help me?

How do i link the word 'Dirk' on the current staff section of the Underworld page to the actual page for Dirk?

Thanks

Updated images for LOAsEdit

Hi Karen, Thanks for all of the kind words on the mid 2000s character pages. The 2017 pictures for LOAs are Chesney, Luke, Eileen, David, Sarah and Faye. The main reason for the updated images was that these characters' images were a tad older than most of the other current characters. Thanks again, N&R 01:04, August 17 2017 (UTC)

Who Pushed Ken?Edit

Followtheyellowbrickroad (talk) 11:17, August 17, 2017 (UTC)I wrote a short summary for the Who Pushed Ken subheading on Ken Barlow's page. Did it require filling? It was neglected ever since I first saw it.

LOAs Edit

The LOAs of Kirk (2012), Audrey (page 2012 LOAS 2013), Anna (2014), Fiz (2014), Tracy (2014) and Mary (2014) could do with an upgrade.Followtheyellowbrickroad (talk) 05:00, August 19, 2017 (UTC)

Max 2016 Edit

Max 2016
I've got a new 2016 image for Max Turner. Trouble is, my computer says that the page is protected, so I can't access it. Would you be so kind as to add this image to the page? Cheers. Followtheyellowbrickroad (talk) 05:15, August 30, 2017 (UTC)

Or on second thoughts, no need to upload this one - it's got David's shoulder in it. Followtheyellowbrickroad (talk) 07:16, August 30, 2017 (UTC)

Given names Edit

Instead of deleting a first name, you could turn it into a useful disambiguation page, so that someone who knows a character only as "Steve" or whatever can go to a page that lists them with enough detail beside each name for the searcher to work out which one he or she wants. -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 12:45, August 30, 2017 (UTC)

Regular charactersEdit

Hey Karen,

I couldn't help but notice you had removed my additions to the "current characters" category, on the grounds they were not "regular characters". I find it hard to think of any reason why Summer Spellman, Moira Pollock and the Appletons shouldn't be considered "regular", especially as there are people on there who haven't been seen for any episodes for a few weeks now.

Thanks,

QuotesEdit

Please reinstate the quotes! 

Noted. Some of the links removed were for things where I thought just a few words of explanation were all that's needed and so a whole page seems over the top - e.g. What else could be said about Ormskirk, a west Lancashire market town that one-appearance characters visit from.

Why This Wiki is Broken: An Open Letter to AdministratorsEdit

H3mh7b (talk) 17:53, 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) 17:53, December 9, 2017 (UTC)
H3mh7b (talk) 23:51, 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) 23:51, December 9, 2017 (UTC)

I am glad I left this hostile site 3 years ago, as Hitler's Nazi Germany was sedate comapred to this hellhole. Some idiots have posted on my own Corrie wiki saying this Corriepedia is flawless. Sorry but I have noticed no end of mistakes on Corriepedia. I am sick shitless of people saying how great Corriepedia is when I know different.  Benny1982 (talk) 18:47, November 3, 2018 (UTC)

Oh dear! Well since you posted this on my talk page I can only speak for myself. I certainly haven't been anywhere near your site... but after three years you're back here having a dig. Again I haven't claimed that this site is perfect - it's far from it, but I have no control over anybody else's opinion - that includes yours. Hope you feel better now for getting it off your chest.

Lack of ResponseEdit

H3mh7b (talk) 03:57, 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) 03:57, December 14, 2017 (UTC)

H3mh7b (talk) 04:25, December 20, 2017 (UTC)So... is that it, then? Is this the "professionalism" you speak of? Can I go forward with these categories, your ladyship, 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) 04:25, December 20, 2017 (UTC)

List of deaths Edit

Hi, is it possible you could add Simon (Episode 4740) to the list of on-screen deaths? It took place on Episode 4740 (25th December 1999) and the cause was cardiac arrest after being knocked off his bike. Thanks. Danielroxheaps 07:14, February 23, 2018 (UTC)

Hi, could you please add an unnamed man to the list of deaths? He was run over by Ronnie Clayton on-screen in Episode 6304 (31st May 2006), with his death being revealed Episode 6305 (2nd June 2006)
Thanks. Which date should it be? Danielroxheaps 09:30, July 1, 2018 (UTC)
Just checked out the episode now, it's on the paperboy statue outside the Kabin, so it has no date. Danielroxheaps 10:07, July 1, 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I'd already checked. There's also no given date when the police arrested and interviewed Steve or when they arrested Ronnie. Karen2310 (talk) 10:25, July 1, 2018 (UTC)

Main Cast Edit

I thought it was custom that when a character was upgraded to the main cast that all of their appearances beforehand were changed to reflect this - so that they appear in the "regular cast" section in the pages of all of their appearances rather than "guest cast". This is evident with the likes of Gemma Winter who only appeared in a guest role in 2014-2015 before being made into a main character yet her credits for her original episodes now show her in the main cast. If I've got it right shouldn't both Gina Seddon and Robert Preston be listed in the main cast sections of their original episodes rather than guest cast? Or have I got it wrong? Xx-connor-xX (talk) 15:37, March 10, 2018 (UTC)

All of Gemma Winter's appearances were changed to regular when we felt like she was sticking around, but Dolly-Rose Campbell has made all of the appearances. Both Gina and Robert were played by different actors in their first stint and have only become "regular" since being replaced by the respective current actors. Other examples of this scenario are Blanche Hunt (Patricia Cutts - guest / Maggie Jones - regular), and some actors portraying both Peter and Susan Barlow have also been listed in guest cast.

Hey! I'm here representing the Vanguard team, just asking if you would like to adopt the Portable Infobox tool here. See User talk:Jtomlin1uk#Portable Infoboxes for details, I asked him already and he thought some others would like to take a look!--V Technobliterator TC 01:00, March 15, 2018 (UTC)

UK English spelling Edit

I'm a bit confused on "tranquilisers" vs "tranquilizers". Is the first one not the UK English spelling? Because here in Australia and New Zealand we use an S, and we generally always use UK English spelling? Danielroxheaps 19:27, March 25, 2018 (UTC)

Yes I'd looked at Cambridge instead of Oxford dictionary. Feel free to change it. --Karen2310 (talk) 19:43, March 25, 2018 (UTC)

Maggie Redman Edit

Shouldn't Maggie be reverted back to a regular character? I don't know how you decide here but over on Emmerdale Wikia we do it that if a character appears frequently every month for 6 months then they are a regular. Maggie appeared frequently every month from October 1992 to April 1993, totalling to 7 months. Danielroxheaps 07:46, April 6, 2018 (UTC)

As far as I'm aware, Maggie has never been placed as a regular cast member on any of our episode pages, so I'm not quite understanding what you mean by "reverted back". Personally, I'd agree that the character stays in guest cast - considering that she was never a Coronation Street resident and also taking into account the nature of the character's storylines, but that's just my opinion since you've posted the query here. Please feel free to open the debate on a forum page though. Regards, Karen2310 (talk) 18:02, April 12, 2018 (UTC)

Robert's birthday Edit

Robert's birthday is 22nd October 1971. It's revealed on tonight's episode. Can you added Robert's birthday into his page? (Ednasharon24534)

As Of Edit

Just a suggestion: wouldn't it be easier for you to create an "as of [episode]" template instead of updating all the character pages? Emmerdale Wikia has a template and it makes it so much easier for Aks, who updates all the LOAs. Danielroxheaps 02:38, April 16, 2018 (UTC)

Thank-you. Might be looking into that in the near future. Karen2310 (talk) 12:59, April 26, 2018 (UTC)

Where to Watch Edit

Hi Karen,

The Coronation Street episodes currently being shown in New Zealand are from October 2016. Therefore it is nineteen months behind, as opposed to the eighteen listed on the main page. Thought you should know this.

This has since been corrected, thanks! Karen2310 (talk) 12:59, April 26, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks Danielroxheaps 04:03, April 25, 2018 (UTC)

Also just letting you know June 11th, the show will be split into two "shows": Coronation Street 2018 which shows the episodes from last week from UK's most current episode, and Coronation Street Catch-Up which will continue the current episodes from 19 months behind. There'll also be a show called Shiver which will catch viewers up with the storylines from ninteen months in two hours. Danielroxheaps 00:08, May 10, 2018 (UTC)

PC GranEdit

Hi Karen, hope you are well, I was just wondering about a potential page merge. Clifford Barry played an '[[Police Officer (Clifford Barry)|unnamed police officer]]' until July 2012, then returned as PC Gran from March 2013. Could we assume that these two characters are the same? If not, would it be sensible to put a note at the bottom of the page(s)? I thought I would come to you first, as I am unsure on whether or not these two are both the same character. Kind regards, Layton4 - 23:55, 8/5/2018

Yes, I'm well thank you. Just been extremely busy off-site of late. I'd certainly agree with the page merge if you'd like to work on that, and the unnamed officer page can get deleted once transferred. All the best. Karen2310 (talk) 08:49, May 10, 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your reply; I have gone ahead and merged the pages, whilst amending all the links on the episode pages, as well as the actor's page too. The only thing that needs to be done is the page deletion, which I am not authorised to do. Thanks again, Layton4 - 13:04, 10/5/2018
Deleting now - many thanks! Karen2310 (talk) 13:56, May 10, 2018 (UTC)

Stuart Blackburn’s PageEdit

I have made edits to Stuart’s page to make it fit the same style as Kate Oates’, would it be possible to have the page unlocked? Xx-connor-xX (talk) 17:47, May 24, 2018 (UTC)

Blocking Edit

Hi I noticed you have been blocking users for one year and then waiting about eleven months to block them again. In case you weren't aware you can type infinite into the box to permanently ban them. Thanks Danielroxheaps 21:58, May 30, 2018 (UTC)

Richard HillmanEdit

Richard Hillman confirmed not dead today Possible link between Rosemary and Richard Fri 1 June needed to be added to Richard Hillman Appearances Curtisssssz (talk) 20:48, June 1, 2018 (UTC)

That was not Richard Hillman in tonight's episode - it was Lewis Archer - different character, different actor!! Karen2310 (talk) 21:40, June 1, 2018 (UTC)

Unfair blockingEdit

Hi Karen, is there any way you could possibly find out the reason for my year long blocking on my Xx-connor-xX account? I have no memory of any wrongdoing on my part/any negative interaction with admins. Thanks. Connorguy99 (talk) 18:08, June 2, 2018 (UTC)

I don’t feel comfortable with talking to that admin, this is the second time I’ve been wrongly blocked by the same individual with no reasons given. I thought I’d message you as I find you to be fairer. Thanks anyway, I’ll simply just start again on this account and hope I’m not persecuted by the same individual.

Pat Phelan’s Date of Death Edit

Hi,

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 from last week were all set on a storyline of only 2 days. I hope you see what I mean!

Kind Regard

Pat Phelans death date Edit

Hi, As I am unable to I was wondering if you could change the date of Pat Phelans death. It currently says he died on the 28th of May 2018 but I believe he actually died on the 3rd of June 2018 as in Monday nights episode Sarah says how she needs to wish Bethany a happy birthday (her birthday is on June 4th) and that day all the news papers have headlines about Phelans death and it is even said that last night was a horrible one. Hope you see what I mean! Thanks!

Actors Leaving TemporarilyEdit

Hi Karen,

Do you think not adding a character's last appearance episode because the actor is on leave/has been revealed to return soon is a spoiler? Because to a non-internet viewer, Rosie has left. We discussed this on the Emmerdale wikia and I believe we decided it was a spoiler.

Thanks, Danielroxheaps

Maternity durationsEdit

Hi Karen, I was just wondering - does the six month appearance rule not apply when the actress is on a maternity break? I only ask as both Fiz Stape and Michelle Connor have taken breaks longer than six months but that is not reflected in their duration dates. Thanks. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 11:35, June 22, 2018 (UTC)

Wouldn't both Ken Barlow and Kevin Webster still be under contract despite their break from the show? They were never fired. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 11:42, June 22, 2018 (UTC)

Trivia Edit

it doesn't have to be factual (Spice boys (talk) 11:00, June 23, 2018 (UTC)#

We know Jim is the only current serving member - which is included in the "Present known offenders" section. The other pieces of information in there are just speculation. No other page on this whole site has a "trivia" section. Karen2310 (talk) 11:20, June 23, 2018 (UTC)
Nor will we ever have!!!--Jtomlin1uk (talk) 11:29, June 23, 2018 (UTC)
i know but its strong speclation which could give people idea's and theres no harm in saying its unknown if karl was sent there (Spice boys (talk) 14:36, June 23, 2018 (UTC)
ok i don't agree with you guys but i will stick to the fact's so i won't be dispointed noting against you guys just don't agree (Spice boys (talk) 14:42, June 23, 2018 (UTC)
Why would you ever want to present unconfirmed information as fact? Xx-connor-xX (talk) 14:46, June 23, 2018 (UTC)
im not its just to give people idea's (Spice boys (talk) 14:53, June 23, 2018 (UTC)
What do you mean "ideas"? This Wikia isn't for fan fiction the only thing it should be giving out is fact. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 14:59, June 23, 2018 (UTC)
what i mean is that john stape visting room is similar too Tyrone so its very likely Tyrone was sent to highfield. in a nutshell i just didn 't think the information did any harm (Spice boys (talk) 15:10, June 23, 2018 (UTC)
People do rely on these pages to be factual, this information harmed the credibility of the page. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 15:22, June 23, 2018 (UTC)


ok fair enough just that if it's in Trivia i thought people will know its not factual (Spice boys (talk) 15:27, June 23, 2018 (UTC)

The section has been removed - twice, with an explanation as to WHY. There are to be no Triva sections on this Wiki (any more that are discovered/added will be removed). We only document facts as one person's perception of what might have happened/can be seen may differ drastically from another's. If we don't know something - then it's not added - plain and simple. I'm sorry you're not happy with that but the matter is now closed. Karen2310 (talk) 15:33, June 23, 2018 (UTC)


ok fair enough anyone has they own opinion i will stick to the fact for now on (Spice boys (talk) 15:40, June 23, 2018 (UTC)

anyway i hope we cool :) (Spice boys (talk) 16:29, June 23, 2018 (UTC)

Announcements Edit

Hi, thought this new feature might be something useful for Corriepedia, in case you didn't already know about it: https://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:BertH/Introducing_Announcements,_a_new_way_to_notify_your_community Danielroxheaps 06:27, July 21, 2018 (UTC)

PS, I used your delete template as a base for customising the Emmerdale Wikia one, and we found that it didn't add the pages to Category:Candidates for deletion, which also occurs with yours. We managed to fix our one and I tried to fix your one. However, despite copying and pasting the template from Emmerdale Wikia in case something was missing, the CFD category doesn't appear in the categories list. Instead, the page is only added to the Candidates for Deletion category. Danielroxheaps 22:28, July 21, 2018 (UTC)

Lewis Edit

can you please  put Lewis on highfield prison list (Spice boys (talk) 08:56, August 18, 2018 (UTC)

Edit summaries Edit

Hi just to let you know sometimes I have a problem where the edit summary box doesn't work (usually when I'm making numerous edits across a/multiple sites) - other users may be having this problem too. They've removed mobile editing for now but if they put it back, you can't add edit summaries. Just thought you might want to know - Danielroxheaps 02:18, September 12, 2018 (UTC)

Yes I completely understand. I am an administrator on the Hollyoaks wikia and we had a phase which went from before I adopted the wikia to shortly after where the site was horrendously vandalised. Most were bulk edits and having to go through and check each one was a pain.
We also had a problem over on the Emmerdale wikia where people kept adding spoilers and such to pages. We resolved this by adding a bubble on the bottom right on the screen - it may be better to do that as opposed to adding it to the community messages wall as it may not get read. Let me know if you wanted to do that, however you can also create announcements by creating a forum post and adding the link through this - the bell icon up on the top bar will have a (1) and tell editors that an announcement has been made (regardless if they're on another wikia site at that time or not). Let me know if you want any help doing these - Danielroxheaps 06:54, September 12, 2018 (UTC)
Also, I've found there's no way to see if you have any messages through mobile view, and if you use desktop view on mobile sometimes the system messages are hidden somewhere the site doesn't recognise. By the way, sorry if I've brought this up already but I found a way to create your own messages to appear in bubbles at the bottom right of the screen, for example one should appear on the desktop view on the Emmerdale wikia. Thought I'd let you know about this ability as it might be a better way to get contributors to consult the manual of style before editing. - Danielroxheaps 11:37, October 6, 2018 (UTC)

Jim's sister Edit

Shouldn't Jim's sister be listed in the infoboxes as Eileen McDonald as that would be/have been her surname at some point regardless of whether she's married or not? - Danielroxheaps 07:36, October 13, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, done. Karen2310 (talk) 08:05, October 13, 2018 (UTC)

Sorry I didnt realise I just thought a category would be helpful as I have a list of the killers/murderers I also think a kill count would be helpful Iv done It on Hollyoaks wiki and Eastenders wiki but If you feel this will be a bother then I apologize and wont do the edit again.

StatisticsEdit

How come you removed the statistics from the business LOA pages? Xx-connor-xX (talk) 22:48, October 24, 2018 (UTC)

For uniformity, basically. The pages that were set up originally and put into the category don't have them. I also wrote this on the edit summary of the pages I removed them from. The formatting should be consistent throughout. Karen2310 (talk) 22:56, October 24, 2018 (UTC)
They're designed to be like the character LOAs, and I was planning on adding statistics to the earlier few too. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 22:58, October 24, 2018 (UTC)
Oh! Apologies, I didn't realise you'd decided that. In any event, the year formatting had taken on two different styles so at least that's now uniform, and I'll keep a lid on the rest. Karen2310 (talk) 23:12, October 24, 2018 (UTC)
Its ok if you feel like it doesn't belong, its just what I thought was to happen. Thanks. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 23:49, October 24, 2018 (UTC)

ok ive never really been best at Spelling but i try better next time please don't be Annoyed (Spice boys (talk) 20:21, November 23, 2018 (UTC)

ok i think i understand what your talking about the summary how do you do it? (Spice boys (talk) 21:06, November 23, 2018 (UTC)

ok thanks :) (Spice boys (talk) 21:19, November 23, 2018 (UTC)

An unnecessary & unreasonable blockEdit

No wiki I have ever edited on has ever blocked me for failing to add a reason for editing, and thus I did not realise that it was a blockable offence on this wiki, and I didn't think I had to add an ROE for the edits whose reasons were frankly pretty obvious. I have been an editor on this wiki for five years, and other wikis for longer, and I have never been warned, let alone blocked, for this frankly trivial and nitpicky reason, ever. And I'm sorry if this sounds rude, but all I have ever done on this wiki is help out when and where I can, making purely good faith edits, and then out of the blue I get blocked without warning for next to no reason. Ridiculous. In simpler terms, my case of MoS rule 1 violation has been handled poorly by admin here.

Look, I don't mean any bad blood here, I understand why the ROE rule exists, I just think it's a bit too strictly enforced for what it is & should probably be relaxed a bit. - a signed-out MrSiriusBlack 10:05, November 24, 2018 (UTC)

Yeah nah, don't refer to those messages on my talk page as 'attempts to correspond with me' as if I deliberately ignored them. A: I replied to one of them with the reasons for my edit, and B: all they are are reminders to add ROEs, with no implications whatsoever that a block is impending if I don't. As I stated above, poorly handled. - MrSiriusBlack

Paul Foreman & Gemma WinterEdit

Nonsense, eh? Ah, you'll find out soon enough.

  r/woooosh
I'm pretty sure it is true. However, until it is seen on screen it can't be implemented here. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 21:24, December 2, 2018 (UTC)

Hi, could you please tell me why the page about Spain was deleted

The reason is given on the deletion log. Karen2310 (talk) 09:28, January 3, 2019 (UTC)

Are you aware it is mentioned in the notes of the episode he returns in December 14th?

What notes?? What episode?? I don't know who has left this message or what you're talking about but if it's about Paul Foreman he didn't return until 1st January. Anything that was written about the character (with the exception of additional information from his first stint) prior to the episode being aired on that date was a spoiler. This is a strictly No Spoiler site. --Karen2310 (talk) 18:21, January 12, 2019 (UTC)
They’re talking about Ken Barlow I think. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 18:32, January 12, 2019 (UTC)

Claudia ColbyEdit

Hi Karen, hope you are well,

Shouldn't Claudia's placing on Template:Coronation Street characters and List of current characters be directly before Brian Packham? Unfortunately both of these pages are locked so I cannot make the changes myself. Thought I'd message you while it was still fresh! Layton4 - 18:42, 15/1/2019

Thank you! Having worked on all the entries/placements that need to be changed all afternoon, I think it was just a brain cell lapse. All the best. Karen2310 (talk) 18:48, January 15, 2019 (UTC)

Just wondering why you deleted my edits to Sarah and David's pages. Is adding education details to that section as well as addresses and employment not allowed? I don't imagine it would be that much extra work since it would only apply to characters who we have explicit details of school years. Carterboi33 (talk) 15:55, March 28, 2019 (UTC) 

Hi Karen, picking you as you're the one online at the moment!

I've done proofreads of last Fri episodes and the cast member who was in the list.

However the 'view full list' link at the bottom of 'proofread these articles' https://coronationstreet.fandom.com/wiki/Special:Community  goes to popular pages, not pages that need proofing.  Is there a longer list of stuff that needs proofing?  It's something I do in work with reports and stuff and wouldn't mind doing it when I get chance.

I'm also pretty good at cars, if anyone's got a doubtful car then happy for them to send me a pic and I'll try and identify it.  Already done a few of these on old episodes I'm watching off my PVR.

James Heaton (talk) 18:26, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

Hey i got the message thank you for that i love corrie watched it since 2000 - Jacob

Hi Karen,

Please can yuo e-mail me. I have a coronation street question regarding 1991. I see this list of episodes jumps from 3406 to 3408. Is this wrong or was it a double episode and should be 3406/3407. If so is the eps for the year wong as it just says 81.



amanda_1500@hotmail.com

Hi Karen, I'm so sorry about this, I will not do this again.

Thank you Karen. I also am a huge Corrie fan. So if you need me to help you out, I am always here!

Tracy McDonaldEdit

Sorry for all the slip-ups! It took a while for me to get used to Tracy with that name! David (talk) 13:03, June 30, 2019 (UTC)

Just noticed - congratulations on 100k edits!! David (talk) 13:13, June 30, 2019 (UTC)
Thank you!! That one had actually passed me by in one of my own senior moments! Karen2310 (talk) 13:15, June 30, 2019 (UTC)

PC Hall Edit

Apologies didn't realise John Hall existed, I was in the midst of infobox linking my old pages and do not think that existed. Also I have figured out how to infobox link and also how to defaultsort so every page I have made today have been gone through and sorted out. Also thank you for the Bea (Episode 9803) format changing. I did think that I should have episode numbered Carl there, but become unsure so never did, apologies. Grandpa Lo68 (talk) 22:14, June 30, 2019 (UTC)

Defaultsorts Edit

If Defaultsorts are unneeded if a surname is unprovided, how come some characters without surnames get Defaultsorts with episode numbers in brackets next to them when they do not have surnames? Also how come the ever silent factory employee Dirk or Little Bez (it's one of the two, not sure which at the moment though) does not have a page, when I think I read he's been in the show for years? Just to correct myself here his name is Dirk and he has been in the show for twelve years. Actually would Dirk actually be warranted a page? Because he is only an extra Grandpa Lo68 (talk) 14:08, July 2, 2019 (UTC) Well these are proving hard to research, I find a ton of Ralph Lewis' on IMDB so all of those need rifling through if I want to make a page for Little Bez as there are so many, and without it it's likely appearance numbers could be done wrongly by me again. In the case of Dirk, although he is an extra he is still credited as Adam Blease-Dirk first name dropped as Dirk in 2017 by Fiz when he passed her a drink in the rovers. Awkward thing is he doesn't have an IMDB and he is but an extra, that many want to have lines, and it's unclear when he debuted as an extra as some reports say between the 70s and the 2000s, whereas others say 2007 which makes things there very confusing too. Just thought that this deserved noting, although it should have probably been noted as a new message entirely, sorry that this was not done. Also by I, I mean anyone. So it begs the question should we all forget their existence on here and not give them pages? Grandpa Lo68 (talk) 17:04, July 2, 2019 (UTC)

Presenter Edit

I'm pretty sure that I originally put presenter under Coronation Street Characters originally however someone removed it for some reason when I added that category, not sure as to why however. Just thought I would let you know. I believed back then it was because she was only seen via the Holiday Resorts television was why, when it was originally removed. Also apologies for the Grammar and link on presenter, I just believed it look better inside the pipelink. Grandpa Lo68 (talk) 12:34, July 4, 2019 (UTC) Apologies about the Jamie Dickens situation, the pipelink to that one confused me much, and made me believe it was the same Michael Hawkins as the one from several years ago.

David/Alma appearances Edit

Thanks for correcting the David and Alma statistics, Karen. Just came back to sort and you'd beaten me to it! Kerry1983 (talk) 10:52, July 9, 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for your message. I was wondering what the rules are, regarding publishing vintage photos of characters from Coronation Street on this forum. Some photos that I have, have been published in TV guides from many years ago. I also have some images taken from pre-recorded videos of Coronation Street. I would be grateful for your help in clarifyingnthe position.

New pagesEdit

Let me know what the issues are and I can fix them, or I can remember the issues so that the next page I create won't have them. 

Category issue Edit

Hi Karen, I saw the message about the problem with new category pages and wonder what the issue was until I saw that the characters aren't showing up on the Ecclestone Estate page. Just to say that they definitley were showing there when I first created the category page, I know because I double checked all the characters had been linked to the page correctly afterwards so I don't know why they aren't now. Don't know if that helps or not. Carterboi33 (talk) 20:27, July 28, 2019 (UTC)

EDIT: I just removed and re-added Kylie to the category and all the characters are showing again now. Carterboi33 (talk) 20:29, July 28, 2019 (UTC)

Leanne Edit

Hi Karen, just wondering if there's any chance the protection could be lowered on Leanne Battersby's page so it can be updated? Carterboi33 (talk) 19:01, August 6, 2019 (UTC)

Debbie Webster in current characters template Edit

Could you add Debbie Webster to the Current characters template please?

Thank you.

Helloyoungchaps (talk) 21:02, October 2, 2019 (UTC)

Pointless in my opinion as she’s only back until Monday. I know this site is spoiler-free, and that may classify as a spoiler for some who think she’s back full time, but we did something similar by not removing Eileen from the template when she “left” last year as we knew she was coming back.

Chinese "version" of Corrie. Edit

Hi Karen! 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.

Thanks for the info Daniel. I've also passed the message to both DTW and JT for consideration. Karen2310 (talk) 16:59, November 3, 2019 (UTC)

Upset and disappointed Edit

My Wiki account is 'spice boys'. I feel like I need to talk to you, about you blocking my account. I feel somewhat annoyed that I was given no warning about the reasoning of my account being banned, I believe it was completely unfair and I feel rather upset and disappointed with your actions. I wish to understand your reasoning for your decision, because I feel like i'm a reasonable person and just wish for an explanation. My spelling and grammar may be effected by the fact that I have ASD, but regardless of this, I try to take part in providing factual information on the Wiki pages.(79.70.252.158 13:56, November 9, 2019 (UTC)

Pat Phelan in "Suicides" category Edit

I feel as though Pat Phelan should be added to the "Suicides" category, as he took the knife out which was keeping him alive.

I don't agree with this because it wasn't a self inflicted wound. Xx-connor-xX (talk) 17:00, November 9, 2019 (UTC)


Fair enough. Thank you for the response. Helloyoungchaps (talk) 17:08, November 9, 2019 (UTC)

I thought he pulled out the knife intentionally so he would die and Anna would be sent down for his murder. AlmightyDino (talk) 18:51, November 9, 2019 (UTC)

Character Rankings Edit

Hi Karen, thanks for tidying up my work after my changes. I was unsure what the convention was for character rankings when their totals for that year are equal. Are they listed alphabetically? Keggie (talk) 11:40, December 10, 2019 (UTC)

Hi, watching classic today, surely actors were in wrong yards for scene about pigeons?

Sorry, I can't help you. I don't watch Classic Corrie episodes so don't even know which episode you're talking about. --Karen2310 (talk) 19:52, December 13, 2019 (UTC)
