Category:Camp Half-Blood characters[edit]

Would anyone be opposed to a Camp Half-Blood characters category? Seems appropriate, given that most of the characters have article an' all. Harry Blue5 (talk) 22:27, 6 January 2011 (UTC) Probably we should just to Camp Half-Blood series for the Percy Jackson series category and the Heroes of Olympus category. The list of characters should just be in both cats, and in this cat. --Perseus, Son of Zeus 16:31, 11 January 2011 (UTC)


Our collaboration's pretty much stopped with The Battle of the Labyrinth...would someone rescue it? --Perseus, Son of Zeus 16:33, 11 January 2011 (UTC)


I'm planning on recategorising some of the stuff. Basically, Category:Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Category:The Heroes of Olympus would only contain the books in their series, and all characters would be moved to Category:Camp Half-Blood characters. The PJatO and the THoO categories would be recategorised and be subcategories of Category:Camp Half-Blood. That's the basic gist of it. What does everyone think? Harry Blue5 (talk) 13:36, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm going to go with silence as consensus here and do the categorisation. If anyone objects after I start recategorise stuff, tell me and I'll revert everything and continue the discussion. Harry Blue5 (talk) 10:59, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
I think this is a good idea, but maybe you could also help to clarify the different sets of characters, as a few of my friends have complained about it being confusing Charmeister (talk) 11:07, 21 January 2011 (UTC) thanks Harry
I really don't know what you mean, truth be told. Harry Blue5 (talk) 11:08, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
Charmeister, that doesn't apply to the whole world's view. --Perseus, Son of Zeus sign here 18:06, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

FA review for The Lightning Thief[edit]

Anyone think we should try to get The Lightning Thief to FA-status? --Perseus, Son of Zeus sign here 18:49, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Percy Jackson mass deletion[edit]

I am in the process of a Percy Jackson mass deletion. --Perseus, Son of Zeus sign here 18:55, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

This is not the case; please see here for more info and clarification. Airplaneman 00:35, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Article Alerts[edit]

Has anyone noticed that the PJTF articles alerts aren't working? There are three afd's and they're not showing up on the alerts... Brambleclawx 15:46, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, the articles alerts haven't been working for awhile. PrincessofLlyr royal court 21:08, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
I think the bot has been down for a few months, and its maintainer is inactive. I do recall a few people trying to revive the bot's project a while back; I'm not sure of the status on that. Airplaneman 07:46, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Oh, the new bot's up and running, but it doesn't seem to be working for PJTF. Brambleclawx 22:13, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Next collaboration[edit]

Nom'ed The Battle of the Labyrinth for collaboration? --Perseus8235 15:15, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

minor spelling issue[edit]

Can anyone confirm the spelling of Gaia/Gaea in The Lost Hero? It is being frequently changed back and forth in the related articles and honestly, I don't remember which one the book uses. Can we pick one and clearly stick with it? PrincessofLlyr royal court 02:41, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

I just had a quick check in my (British Hardback) version of TLH and it appears to be "Gaia". Harry Blue5 (talk) 23:04, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
But my American version writes "Gaea"... -Mktsay123 (talk) 14:30, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

It's time for another roll call[edit]

Well folks it looks like we've become inactive again and in hopes of changing that I propose sending out another roll call to our editors, moving pending to inactive, and active to pending. Anyone for or against? Winner 42 Talk to me! 01:30, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Sure, sounds good. PrincessofLlyr royal court 13:46, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I'll start on it. Can we get the bot to send out the roll call?Winner 42 Talk to me! 11:18, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
You can use bots, yes. MessageDeliveryBot is really easy to use. Regards, Rock drum Ba-dumCrash 12:23, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
I've sent out the roll call, you should be getting it soon. Winner 42 Talk to me! 16:27, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
The message is has been sent completely now, the bot's work is done. Winner 42 Talk to me! 18:03, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Our very bad staffing problem[edit]

As you may know, only 3 editors are "active" making it difficult to complete our projects. Does anyone have any ideas? Winner 42 Talk to me! 19:13, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Suggestion that this taskforce become the "Rick Riordan Taskforce"[edit]

As Rick Riordan has been steadily at the top of children's literature bestseller and favorite author lists, maybe a way to get this WikiProject reactive would be to change it from solely Percy-Jackson related to include the Kane Chronicles and upcoming Magnus Chase series; perhaps even the Tres Navarre novels should be included, for the sake of completeness.

Support - I am not active in this group, but it seems like a reasonable expansion and a good way to get targeted support on the topic. I would strongly recommend finding other people to collaborate on the articles with you, Sadads (talk) 14:20, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
