Grimoire of Time Discussion[edit source]

     Feel free to ask me any questions or leave requests for pertinent information that would do well to list within the Grimoire of Time.
~Archmage Zebular, Terraseer of Mystryl

Fundamentally, the main issue with the page is storytelling. The wiki's main namespace is for documenting the game in a encyclopedic manner. There shouldn't be any first-person perspective ("You come across a massive square book...") and there shouldn't be any references to player characters ("Grimoire of Time by Archmage Zebular"). Also, people tend to feel ownership of stories, but pages in the main namespace are communal.
There are minor issues with html and css tags, but those are superficial.
The complex fix is carving out the storytelling, and splitting the page into distinct articles about the Forgotten Realm's calendar, pantheon, etc.
The easy fix is moving the page to your user namespace. Your user namespace is a sandbox, and you can maintain the page mostly without interference. I'm going to move the page to user namespace for now, and leave a redirect. -- Two30 (talk) 16:08, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
That works! Thanks! I'll see about getting pertinent documentation laid out in a relevant format in their own proper pages at some point. Mostly used it as a dumping ground for lore that's mostly missing from the in-game lore book pages. --Old Zebular (talk) 17:50, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
