Have really been enjoying this book and hope Gigi writes more. However, I found myself jarred out of the story once when I read ‘kilometers’, don’t recall any other metric measurements in other books (Anne’s nor Todd’s) and once at the use of ‘fecking’ seemed to be strangely Irish rather than Pernese. Anyone’s else notice, or feel the same?
What's on your mind?
The site change.org created a petition to the Warner Bros about the early creation of the film. Support the petition, show the film company that the Dragonriders of Pern series has enough fans who will gladly go to the cinema and pay back the production!
Hello everyone, friends!
Today there is a small reason for joy - for the first time in a long time of the wiki’s existence, it was possible to achieve that the number of Wanted Pages became less than 1000!!!
Of course, I did my best to correct non-existent links to existing analogues - it was my contributed to work, but most of the work was done by Shambala108, creating dozens of articles a week, for which we to be very grateful!
In honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the Dragonriders of Pern series, Gigi does her mother proud, adding to the family tradition of spinning unputdownable tales that recount the adventures of the brave inhabitants of a distant planet who battle the pitiless adversary known as Thread.
Having finished work on articles about Weyrs, Holds and Crafts, as I promised for a long time, I'm made a new design for the Main Page.
Cheers! On the eve of the release of the new book, the design has become stylish and youth, which I hope will be attractive to the younger generation of readers. Main Page has become shorter, due to the removal of the Gallery of Books, but more informative, thanks to the Navigation section, which covers most of the content of the wiki. In the old version from the Main Page you could only get on the books and a dozen articles, the links to which were in the right column.
Currently, only the "Random Book" block does not work on the new Main Page. There is only one book added, but in the future it is planned to add the possibility of accidentally appearing one of all existing books. I will do this after I finish updating the articles about the books and their covers.
In addition, since the new design was incorrectly displayed in the mobile version of the wiki, I also made a new mobile version of the Main Page.
Hello, dear readers of the wiki.
I want to share with you my joy and pride. I recently completed a lot of work. I updated infoboxes of Weyr, Holds and Crafts. This work included not only updating templates, but also updating all articles and putting in order the categories tree (including - the categories of characters).
Let them still far from the ideal, but it's already much better. At least all the articles on the same topic are in one place, and not scattered throughout the wiki, cheers! And the mess in the special pages of the wanted / uncategorized / unused pages has significantly decreased.
The next step is going to do articles about books and stories.
I just found a box of the fan magazines/newsletters from the old Fort Weyr and Ista Weyr clubs.
Anybody interested in them?
Looking forward to the new novel from Anne McCaffrey's daughter Gigi. It is due to be released on October 2nd, 2018.
Hope the new year brings you all much joy, happiness and success!
When Lessa brought the five wyers forward, what happened to all the support wyerfolk? Did each dragon carry 3-4 people and their belongings? If they were abandoned in the past there would be some kind o legend of just dragons and riders disappearing. Where did all the wyerfolk go? - Pyewacket
The Pern Wiki has 9 users that are listed as sysops. Only 3 are currently active. Additionally, there are 5 bureaucrats, with 4 of those not making any contributions for at least the past 5 years.
Per Fandom policy, I would like to open this discussion to see if there is a consensus to remove the inactive bureaucrats.
Please provide your input during the next 3 days.
Cara Telgar as an idea
This is not a discussion about Lorana. I just have to say something...
WHY IS LESSA NOT IN THE DRAGONRIDER CATEGORY???? SHE'S TOTALLY A DRAGONRIDER! (and a very significant one) Will someone Pleeeeeeeeeeeease make something about Lessa? In which category is she???
There only one ref. so I"m wonder should we just put in the glossry part of here? Its shown in the contract that Ussie comment about.
I could have sworn I read in one of the books that gravid queens should not go Between or they might lose their clutch. I believe the reference was made regarding queens arrriving late to a Gather because they had to fly straight over land from the weyr. Does anyone recognize this and can you direct me to the book it was in?
Someone, please, spell Piemur for me, phonetically? How in the heck do you pronounce it. I have two ideas, maybe they're both wrong.
pee-AY-mer (ay means the long-A)
I was looking over some stuff and this name has come up, I was just thinking, you have read too much Pern, when you finding more information.
