Hello there! My name is MrSiriusBlack, better known as Sirius, and I am a bureaucrat on the Waterloo Road Wiki.

I watch closely for vandalism and spam on this wiki, and I am happy to help - feel free to leave a message with any questions or queries you may have.

  • Hey Sirius, 

    Just a quick one to say that the main page could do with an update (https://bbc-waterloo-road.fandom.com/wiki/Waterloo_Road_Wiki) still saying "Current Characters" etc.

  • Hi again! I hope things are going well. Checking in to see how you're doing here, and I want to make sure that you catch these important Fandom updates.

    The Unified Community Platform (UCP) is coming this year, which means that Fandom Wikis like this one will be getting some much-needed renovations (and new features!) as we move to an upgraded version of MediaWiki. Check out the Staff blog post UCP: The Vision, Purpose, and Process for information on the roll out plan, which will come out this year in stages.

    The first stage will be starting very soon, with new wikis being created on the UCP. To stay up to date with these changes, you can keep an eye on the staff blogs on Community Central.

    If you have any questions, feel free to comment on those blog posts or let me know!

  • Yay, message walls! I saw that you put a welcome message in a regular wall post; if you'd like to put one at the very top of your wall and keep it there, you can do that by creating Message Wall Greeting:MrSiriusBlack. Just put your message table in there and it'll show up at the top of your wall!

    For the main page, I saw you worked on that too! Would you be interested in implementing the main page columns to help the display? Also, I noticed that "teachers" is a common search item for the wiki. Maybe we could create a navigation gallery for teachers to help visitors find what they're looking for? I can help with that!

    • Thanks for the message wall tips!

      I've been meaning to work on the main page for a long while, but I've never known what do do with it, so yeah go ahead. Teachers and Students are the main character categories.

    • Also this wiki had had message walls originally, but when I became bureaucrat I changed it to talk pages because those are what I am used to from other wikis, but over time I had come to change my mind and was thinking of changing back anyway

    • Thanks, I'll play around with the main page a bit. Feel free to make changes to anything I do!

  • According to Bridget Morley's page, she perished during the fire, but I can't find the part in the episode where that happened or any article online where it says that she died, so I'm really confused as to whether it is true or whether it is an error.

    • The final paragraph of the page states "She was mentioned by Rachel in the first episode of series four when she dedicated the new school to the six casualties caused by the fire.", so, unless Miss Mason never actually said that, it was not in error. (I can't remember, as admittedly it's been a few years since I watched that episode.) Thank you for pointing it out though, and if you have any other queries just let me know :)
