  • Hello -- I've been working on the entry for Crabtree à la Carte, and learning the HTML markdown syntax. My work will likely be slow for a while, as there's a learning curve for fandom.com and for this wiki as well, and I wanted to clarify a couple of things. First, is it all right to remove spoiler warnings for the Season 11 pages? Second, are there any episode descriptions that you consider particularly exemplary? I ask because I notice a variety of styles in the summaries, and I would like to understand the preferred style for the sake of consistency. Finally, is it standard to reveal the solution to the mystery? As a frequent user of the wiki, I find it useful when this information is included.

    Thank you!

    • First - Admin or Content Moderator will move spoiler alert when proofing your contribution.

      Second - While every MM editor has their own style within the editing guidelines, what we do not favor is a blow-by-blow description (including every scene), focus on the investigation and how it unfolds.

      Finally,  the resolution to the investigation in all episodes from Season 1 - 10 is fine; a more measured (cleverly suggestive) conclusion for episodes of Season 11 - 13, please.

      The complete resolution can be found if the visitor is encouraged to link to the Character pages, especially if they visit the culprit's page ;^)

    • Brother's Keeper is a good example of how to frame the investigation and encourage exploration to its related pages for more information.  

      The intention of this wiki is not to have all the answers on a single page, rather engage the visitor to explore and search deeper which is what all good working sites strive to achieve.

    • So, TipsyFerrett, MM editors need to consider putting the final resolution of the case on the criminal's page as its category label does give it away to some degree anyway?

    • Exactly and from the criminal's POV is more interesting (as Character pages should be edited, ideally) – it has been done but not consistently on the wiki. The summary leads the visitor to want to check out the suspects, etc. This will increase the 'click through' of the site as well.

    • Ah, yes, of course. I like the idea; Make it so.

    • Good. Also, thanks for getting the side scoop on the rest of Season 13 episodes!

    • Back to summary style: It is a bit limiting to ask different editors to write in the exact same style - rather, we ask that the summaries use the Murdoch language style, avoiding any contemporary language that is not in keeping with Murdoch's world.  Solutions to the murder cases are placed on the appropriate criminal's Character page for Seasons 11-13 please. Thanks to all ;^)
