House Slynt

The Citadel is in error about House Slynt's heraldry. The books never describe a checkered border, only a night-black field. The only time checkers have been mentioned are on the cloaks Janos and Morros wear, which do not suggest checkers are also on their shield - it's just a way to display the colors of their house. You are however right that Morros's personal coat of arms is non-existent. Potsk (talk) 21:13, 18 June 2022 (UTC)

I'm aware that the books don't mention the checkered border. I brought this issue up on the forum here and Ran very specifically said that the description on the Citadel came from GRRM and shows what the House Slynt coat of arms should look like. I assumed that since there's not really a contradiction, just an addition, if we go with what the Citadel shows, that's what should be shown here as well. --Alyx Rivers (talk) 21:47, 18 June 2022 (UTC)

Infobox character

Hey Alyx, I reimplemented the name parameters in {{Infobox character}} while keeping it compatible with current usage. That means that, for now, nothing will change visually unless the new name parameters are used. The new parameters allow editors to specify the different parts of a character's name and display it in a nice format. We can also use this in the future for categorization according to first name, last name, etc. You can have a look at User:Abjiklam/sandbox2 for some examples of the name formats. If I missed a special case you can let me know and I'll check how I can deal with it.

I've also thought about how to deal with more than 2 COAs. I modified the Infobox such that it displays extra arms in another field under the title "Other arms". Abjiklam (talk) 19:51, 15 September 2022 (UTC)

Hey! I was actually already watching your progress in the Recent Changes. ;) This looks incredibly impressive and I've already started experimenting with some pages. So, thanks a lot! I can currently not think of another special case, but if I come across one, I'll let you know.
About the Other arms, I think, this could work pretty well for Dunk and other people who had an extra sigil for a limited time only, like Tyrion's Hand coa, but I'm not sure if it works that well for women who married several times. Rohanne Webber would be the most extreme example I can think of. It might be a bit confusing if the coas of her birth house and her last husband's house are displayed at the top of the infobox, but her other husbands' sigils are further down.. -Alyx Rivers (talk) 20:08, 15 September 2022 (UTC)
I've answered your feedback here. Abjiklam (talk) 19:53, 3 October 2022 (UTC)


Thank you for fixing my mistakes behind me on the characters list project. This is a rather repetitive work, a mistake is easily made. --Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 18:53, 22 September 2022 (UTC)

You're welcome! Though I'm none too sure I caught everything either, reading the list gets somewhat repetetive too, after a while. ;) What I definitely haven't corrected yet are some of the thumbnail errors, because I'm not entirely sure if we're waiting for a fix there or not. Specifically the Blackfyre, Banefort and the Locke coa aren't working. (I just realized Potsk fixed them already.) -Alyx Rivers (talk) 19:04, 22 September 2022 (UTC)
