I requested the character to be named since, to be honest, the name was chosen by the wiki is not that great.

I have no idea how many ponies you guys have "officially" named on your end, but I would like for Derpibooru and wiki to come to an agreement, I could post the names suggested on their reddit and maybe, hopefully, have someone do the coding for me?

Then everybody is happy and the wiki can be active in naming ponies again. These names are kinda closed to Derpibooru anyways like an inside joke. But most people would want to look at the mlp pony list wiki for the actual names and placeholder names.

For instance, when I suggested a pony’s name to be Fireside Quill or something, I didn’t know she already had a name, here on Derpibooru, as…shoot I forgot, again…and I’d have to go back a couple of pages to remember

Oh hi. Don’t worry, wiki editing is pretty much the easiest "coding" there is. It’s even easier than raw HTML coding, which is easier than Python, Javascript, or (by leagues) C++.

Friend, let me tell you back in High School I only learned enough to pass my Computer Science class with a solid D
Let that tell you that I have no idea how any of those programs work, maybe you should take my place as the MLPWiki Pony List coder? Hahah I think I’m just gonna manage the Reddit polls XD

At the risk of going off-topic, one thing that I miss about the wiki’s list of characters is that many of the characters have their own full page now, and the text description on the table has been replaced with a hyperlink saying "See (charactername)"

This means it’s a lot harder now to search for (as an example) a unicorn with dolphins for a cutie mark (sea swirl) because the cutie mark description has been moved to the character’s sub-page.

It’d be nice if the characters with their own sub-page still had a text description of the cutie mark on the main tables.

I was actually just suffering from this very problem a few days ago trying to figure out why "Patty Peppermint" was the list name for "Peppermint Goldylinks".

Which came from me trying to find out why IMDb and Behind the Voice Actors pages list her as "Patty" and Nicole Oliver as the confirmed actress.

I can screenshot what you guys have said and send it to the mlp wiki discord…maybe they’ll have some insight, maybe they don’t know what to do…maaaybe they’ll just shrug it off.

Oh good, I wasn’t the only one who thought of "Nob Nob". But then I realized, "Nah, that sounds dumb, I don’t think anyone would like that. And I don’t like it." Lol.

Oh god she reminds me of Milky Way… for an actual suggestion, “Delicacy” because chocolate and the hair seems… classy.

That would be Masquerade.
