Wikis suggestionEdit

There is a Victorian London wiki - [1] and a Victorian Britain wiki [2].

It might be useful to use these for the factual background to complement articles here. Jackiespeel (talk) 18:11, February 25, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion Jackiespeel, I'll check them out. :) bloob (talk) 20:01, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

I am using a library computer (so it is lower rather than higher resolution) at the moment - and several of the components of the main page overlap. Jackiespeel (talk) 17:46, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

Probably for the reason mentioned immediately above I can't post to BB's wall: but a SH equivalent to 'Tea in the Wikiverse' (on Tea Wiki) might be useful posted to each of the several Sherlock Holmes related wikis (duly amended) - Baker Street is not necessarily going to be the first search idea. Somewhat simpler than a webring - and, suitably annotated (particular series, role playing etc) somewhat more useful. Jackiespeel (talk) 17:54, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know about the main page, I'm not sure what I can do abiut it as it looks fine on my computer and when i look at it on my Kindle, but I'll keep it in mind.
We already have a page for Related Websites:Wikis with minor Holmes content, is that the type of thing you mean? --blue (talk) 18:56, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

Tea Wiki tends to freeze up library wikis.

Do a check on the 'new Wikis' on the main Wikia site there are several to be found under 'Sherlock.'

A link from the main page here (and those of the other wikis) to the 'related wikis list' here would resolve the matter. Jackiespeel (talk) 19:04, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

I didn't see any Sherlock wikis that are currently active or have more than a couple of pages. blue (talk) 21:14, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

As 'many people' are likely to search under 'Sherlock' perhaps a 'See also Baker Street Wiki (link here)' on the main pages might be useful.(There should be more 'signposting to other relevant wikis' across the wikiverse generally) Jackiespeel (talk) 09:03, August 23, 2013 (UTC)

Sherlock HoundEdit

The wiki is missing a Sherlock related show, Sherlock Hound or Meitantei Holmes in Japanese. Egon Eagle (talk) 15:19, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hello and welcome! This wiki is open to editing by anyone, so feel free to jump right in and add a page for Sherlock Hound. Amateur Obsessive (talk) 15:22, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

An Idea Edit

Maybe we should have links to lists of literature, television and cinematic adaptions on the main page, just after the pictures/links? Тостер (talk) 15:28, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

Wouldn't that be giving the same links twice? Since the pictures are links. I had been thinking of adding captions to the images to make it clearer what is what. Amateur Obsessive (talk) 16:16, January 26, 2014 (UTC)
Certainly it's a hard question with all these links... Тостер (talk) 21:24, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

Sherlock Holmes Baffled Edit

Is there any way to add Sherlock Holmes Baffled (1900) on the main page? Also, I wonder, what pictures should be used in cases when we don't have Watson or otherwise can't get the picture of both him and Holmes for the main page? Тостер (talk) 22:25, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

I'll add it when I get a chance. I generally use whatever images I can find that look clear and good quality - I do usually use an image of Holmes and Watson but I can use somethig different, it doesn't have to be them. Amateur Obsessive (talk) 23:03, January 26, 2014 (UTC)
Good. I must admit, though, that you'll hardly find anything better then screenshots we already have because that's the best quality we can get of this film, unfortunately... --Тостер (talk) 23:11, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

Blog about Sherlock Edit

I've created a new blog, for my fellow Sherlockians and I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions of what I can post on my blog.

Hope you like it.. :D

Nice blog! Maybe you could post popular theories about the upcoming season, and give us your opinion of what may or may not happen, and why. --Nxtstep101 16:59, March 29, 2014 (UTC)
I enjoyed it. --202.65.183.3 03:36, May 16, 2014 (UTC)
Your blog was interesting. --Sherrinford (talk) 04:45, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
