We were waiting on your final approval on the Velaryon sigil (which in turn will be used in the Blacks heraldry). See discussion on that page...--The Dragon Demands (talk) 04:36, January 3, 2017 (UTC)
Season 8 episode count
Hello Gonzalo :-) I don't know where should I put this info http://ew.com/tv/2017/03/12/game-of-thrones-sxsw/?1, because it might be too early to create season eight page, so I'm leaving that to you :-)
Wikia Staff wants to open "Discussion" - what do you think?
Would take time to police, but also draw in more audience away from other places. http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/User_talk:The_Dragon_Demands#Enable_Discussions_for_the_coming_season.3F --The Dragon Demands (talk) 05:31, April 22, 2017 (UTC)
Watch this playlist
Please watch this playlist I made on YouTube. Try to get to it soon, it's about 13 hours of content already and its unfinished - but it represents over a year of research. I figured out everything we didn't understand before. You need to see this.

Accents in non-English dubs
I'm interested in how non-English dubs represent different accents within the story:
Westeros basically has three for the Common Tongue:
- "Standard" Common Tongue accent, for the Andal-dominated kingdoms of southern Westeros (including the Iron Islands). Uses a standard, southern England accent.
- "First Men accent" - the North at Winterfell and the wildlings beyond the Wall both speak like this, in a northern England accent (Westeros is fantasy-Britain, both are from "the north). Wildlings have the same accent due to their shared descent from the First Men.
- Dornish accent - from the Rhoynar. A "Spanish" accent.
There are also upper-class and lower-class accents, between the aristocracy and the working classes: aristocrats like the Lannisters or Tyrells speak in refined "Received Pronunciation" English (like what would be heard at the royal court in London). Working class people like Davos, Gendry, etc. speak more loosely, with grammar errors ("Working class accents" like Cockney English or Estuary English).
I just updated with some info about the German dub accents:
Interestingly, the German dub doesn't try to officially show a difference between a northern and southern England accent: people in the North talk like people in King's Landing (though they use more slang terms). German doesn't have "accents" so much as "regional dialects" so this wasn't a difference that was easy to portray.
Some people from outside of Westeros also use specific accents.
How do they represent regional or class accents in the other language dubs you've seen? Like the Spanish-language one?
Btw, how does specifically Pedro Pascal's "Spanish accent" for Oberyn Martell hold up to native Spanish speakers? Does it sound like it's from somewhere specific, or generic?
- To be honest, I never watch dubbed episodes because the character changes with the new voice and translations always mess up something (learned it watching Buffy). However, I'll see if I can find something on Youtube.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 04:41, August 14, 2017 (UTC)
Hi there! Hola!
I wanted to add something to "Major differences between Book and TV series"
but I don't see an "Edit" button there. Is this a page that only admins can edit? The edit I wanted to make is as follows, I checked in all six seasons and I didn't see it mentioned anywhere:
Season 1 Episode 1 Winter is Coming: Maester Luwin's chains (as well as all the other Maesters in the series) are links of different metals worn as a long, loose chain over his robes. In a further episode, we even see Gran Maester Pycelle dressing and putting the chain over his robes. In the books, the Maester's chains are also links of various metals (red gold, iron, copper, gold, platinum, lead, valyrian steel, black iron) are worn tight around their necks, and they cannot remove them even to sleep. They are meant to be as tight as dog collars to remind them of their servitude. Maester Aemon is even described in AGoT as tugging on the tight chain collar when speaking to Jon Snow.
Character galleries and the main page
Hello Gonzalo84! Recently, FANDOM has been looking at the way visitors interact with the main page of various communities, and we would like to share some of the results we discovered concerning the Game of Thrones Wiki. Overall, the most popular section of the main page (as in, the most clicked/interacted with) is the character gallery. We've found this is true across a range of wikis. In terms of Game of Thrones Wiki, the next most interacted section is the episode guide. In total, these two sections account for around 20% of visitor clicks on the main page.
However, these sections are "below the fold", meaning that a visitor has to scroll down the page to find them. Because of this new information, we are recommending that character galleries be moved higher up the page to take advantage of this popularity, taking the place of the slider as the focus of the main page. We will be publishing a blog on these findings soon, but thought you might appreciate this information in case it changes the way you structure your main page!

Gallery vs Image Galleries
Just a heads up as I clean up the galleries. Image galleries such as "Gallery: Jon Snow" needs to be categorized with Image Galleries (and Gallery if you wish) only. Other categorized pages, like "Category:Image of Object" need only "Gallery and Images", not "Image Galleries" Since it isn't a gallery like the "Gallery: Samwell Tarly" pages. https://gameofthrones.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Gallery - You will see ALL categories still here, so this change won't change too much. If you look at "https://gameofthrones.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Image_Galleries" You will now see that only the character and episode Image Galleries should be there. This just organizes it better. I've made the chances to the upload image rules for the Wiki. Let me know if this was too confusing or if you have questions. :) Now then, back to editing. QueenBuffy 16:02, April 16, 2019 (UTC)

Great Council of 305 AC
Hi Gonzalo. On this page, I made an edit that significantly detailed the page, adding 976 characters. You will be able to see it if you look in the History. As this event is monumental in the history of Westeros, and indeed the series itself, I believed it required a sound amount of detail. However, after making this edit, it was immediately rolled back by MatthewOne, who took to vehemently insulting me on my talk page, telling me to "Watch the show." and he seemed extremely angry that I had edited the page. As far as I can tell, this wiki is a collective, community-oriented, organic entity. Pages aren't chattel; they can be added to by anybody. I just wish for you to sort this issue out. I put a lot of effort and time into making what I believed to be a very instructive edit, only for it to be deleted. Thanks! Evremonde (talk) 16:51, May 21, 2019 (UTC)
- Nevermind. MatthewOne rolled it back after I messaged you. Evremonde (talk) 16:54, May 21, 2019 (UTC)
Never meant to remove anything, those edits got removed while I was restoring my section as Evermonde kept removing it. The only objective was to keep the section about why a new king had to be elected at Grand Council of 305 AC. My problem isn't with any other of your edits. By the way I didn't insult him at all. You can see his talk page User talk:Evrmonde. MatthewOne (talk) 16:59, May 21, 2019 (UTC)
