Hello everybody! This is ManOnAMission with another blog post about this Wiki.
What has happened to The Giver Wikia?
I mean, sure, a lot has happened. We had a problem, then we fixed it.
Now I realize we have another problem. We need more users because this Wiki is basically deserted.
I mean that we only have 2 or 3 active contributors and we need more.
I don't want this Wiki to become dead with no active users.

Hi The Giver Wikia! This is ManOnAMission (with apologies for my previous blog post, which can be found here; I couldn't make up my mind and decided to stay.) with a quick heads-up.)
For this week and next week, I will not be online Monday to Thursday. I may be online on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

Okay, I know it's not actually called the stub tag (template?) but it's what my brain was supplying. Anyway.
We have a lot of pages for minor characters that are tagged as stubs, needing addition of information and expansion. However, there simply isn't a lot of information for a lot of them. Yoshiko, for instance, is a character mentioned once in passing by Father. She has very little information to be known about her, yet her page is tagged as a stub.
Shouldn't we remove the stub tags from the pages with little information to be known?

Hello everybody, this is ManOnAMission with one more blog post.
I am leaving The Giver Wikia.
This wikia was interesting in the beginning, but it got more boring, and now nobody is on the chat, and there is nothing to do.
If you would like to contact me, I will be on the One Night At Flumpty's Wiki, Five Nights At Wario's Wiki, and Five Nights At Treasure Island Wiki.
I have one last thing to say: It was an honor to be on this wikia.

The following are some of the important quotes of The Giver (film). They are listed in the order they appeared in the film.
Jonas's voiceover - After The Ruin, we started all over. Creating a new society. One of true equality. Rules were the building blocks of that equality. We learned them as newchildren. Rules like... Use precise language. Wear your assigned clothing. Take your daily injections.
Jona's voiceover - Obey the curfew. Never lie.
(The Giver title card)
Jona's voiceover - My name is Jonas. I don't have a last name. None of us did. That day, the day before graduation. I had met it. I was scared. Tomorrow we would be assigned our jobs, our purpose. It seemed that everybody knew theirs already. (pauses) Not me. I was lost. I a…

We've come into some controversy over the Jonas's Mother and Jonas's Father pages. When I originally adopted the wiki, I edited things to keep everything consistent, but now some people want to change it back.
We could just name them Mother and Father since that's what they're referred to in the books.Read more >
Hello, Darkstripe here, a fellow Elder! I'd like to address a bit of an issue.
First of all, I'm starting to notice that there are WAY to many stubs, which should really be updated/improved. We've really been working on improving already full articles (there's nothing wrong with that, I'm not trying to say there it) but I think the admins and all the other active users should start working on adding to stubs, so we can remove the tag and have better articles.
Now, just hold on a second before you start shouting, "Hey, you haven't improved any stubs recently! Don't be so hypocritical!" I know I haven't recently, but in my spare time (which I have little of nowadays) I'll start trying to do so.
If and when I find the time, I am going to create …Read more >
Hello everybody, this is ManOnAMission, with a question for the admins.
What is the future of The Giver Wikia?
This a very clear and mysterious question. Unless you have ESP or are a gyspy, this question will remain unanswered. But another question arises, what can we do to insure that this wiki is accurate and safe?
The answer is clear: keep doing what we are doing: making contributions to the various pages, and keeping this wiki running.
To the admins, I would like to apply for chat mod and rollback. Also, admins, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!

Hello everybody! This is ManOnAMission again, this time with a few suggestions for our recently opened chat room!! Yay!
Suggestion #1: The Chat room should be called The Community.
Suggestion #2: The Chat room should have a color scheme of gray and then slowly transistion to red.
Suggestion #3: Allow people to customize their chat settings (i.e., text color, font, status, etc.)
These are just a few suggestions for the admins to consider.

Hello all! I am going through the list of comments and deleting all the spam and inappropriate comments. It's long overdue. Fellow admins, remember that we can delete comments, and should be doing so as soon as something inappropriate is said. If you don't know how, I'll be happy to show you :)
However, since I don't have my bot account active on this Wiki, this means that all these deletions is going to affect the Recent Activity. When you do a bunch of deletions in a short period of time, it makes the RA basically disappear. It may be entirely empty, or just short.
So don't panic! It's not the end of the world, just a big spam cleanup :)
I have also requested the disabling of IP editing on the basis of COPPA compliance.Read more >
Hello The Giver Wikia! This is ManOnAMission again with another blog post!
To ANYBODY, if you can find The Giver manga, send me a link.
To the admins, I would like to become an admin.
I also have gotten the Lucky Edit badge for the 4000th edit to this wikia!! Woot!!

Hello everybody! ManOnAMission here again with another blog post! I have a few things to say and ask.
To the admins, I am encouraging the complete ban of I.P. editing and commenting (if it has not been enacted already). The reasons do not include my previous blog post but some evident changes around the wiki. There is a large and consistent amount of I.P. users who are vandalizing the wiki with no intent of stopping, or helping this wikia maintaining its accuracy and sanity.
To the admins, I would like to be an admin. Just let me know if I am eligible.
On a side note, I got a new avatar picture.
Thank you and on behalf on the sanity and accuracy of The Giver Wikia,

We haven't had a new poll in a long time, so I think it's time for one. Does anyone have any ideas?Read more >
The following essay was created by an anonymous user as an article page, where it should have been put up as a blog post. They seemed very proud of it, so since I am deleting the article, I will put it in it's rightful place as a blog post.
Today, I am going to tell all the people who like reading fun-filled, exciting books with an amazing theme spoilers on The Giver. This is my interpretation of The Giver, and I hope you all enjoy.
Well first off, I would like to say kudos to you Lois Lowry, because this book is awesome. Anyway, I think that lois Lowry means to represent our community today. Think about it: we all follow the rules and get chastisement, we all go to school, for those of us who need community service hours or confirmation/gr…

Hi, I'm ManOnAMission, a relative newcomer to this wiki, and have read the Giver Quartet and watched The Giver movie.
Anyway, what I REALLY wanted to discuss is the high amount of vandalism on this wiki.
After reading Mycastleofbooks' blog post about vandalism and how IP editing could possibly be disabled, unless the vandalism does not stop (the blog post can be found here).
On a side note, if the admins are reading this blog post, PLEASE take into consideration what I am about to say.
I completely agree that IP editing should be disabled.
The reason is that it will force people that are trying to edit a page to sign up for Wikia, which will make users more easily punished or banned if they vandalize a page.
However, this blog post is just an opi…Read more >
I was wondering how many registered users are on this wiki and getting rid of vandalism.
If you are the above, please comment on this page.

I really love this wiki. There's so much to do, but due to the hard work of my fellow editors, there's also a lot of good information about Lois Lowry's books.Read more >
So we haven't had a lot of updates recently, but I'm putting that down to the hype of the movie having gone down. There's been some speculation about a movie for Gathering Blue, although it probably won't be out for some time. Maybe we'll get more contributors if an announcement is made.
Your thoughts?Read more >
So I noticed, some pages are in the category of Jobs. And we don't have a category of Assignments. Pages that are about occupations in Community should go in the category of Assignmens and pages in the category of Jobs should be about occupations of Village. They are two very separate things! For example, Drone Pilot, Nurturer and Speaker, would go into the category of assignments. Singer, threader and dyer should be in jobs. Would someone please get on fixing that, I'm very busy.Read more >
I'm starting to love this wiki. There's so much to do, but when I joined, thanks to the work of others, there was so much to base everything from.Read more >
I am so glad to join this wiki. Hope to do as much as possible with adding information. See you I the comments!Read more >
I'm very new to this wiki, but not to Wikia. I plan to help as much as I can on this wiki as possible.Read more >
I wanted to bring to the attention of our community the matter of anonymous users making harmful edits.
I've noticed a few IP addressees (that's what shows if you edit anonymously) have made edits claiming to have greatly improved the page, but instead have erased everything or added nonsensical information.
If you do this, you will be given a temporary block lasting one week. If you do this when signed in, you will be given a warning.
If you do this accidentally, please undo your edit. If you leave it empty, it creates more work for the admins who then have to undo the edit themselves.
Thank you. Mycastleofbooks (talk) 21:59, August 21, 2014 (UTC)Read more >
Okay so I have 2 announcements about administration. Number one- I'd like everyone to welcome our new admin, Utter Solitude. She is our third admin and Mycastleofbooks and I plan to work closely with her.
Number 2- I am looking for an admin to work with on Wiki El Dador. That is the Spanish version of The Giver wiki. But if you speak Spanish, I really could use your help. Check us out at es.eldador.wikia.com. If you start helping us edit, I may consider you or contact me. I am currently Wiki El Dador's only admin.
Thanks!Read more >
So I was looking at other wikis and noticed that some have their wiki translated into other languages. Harry Potter and LOTR have them in almost 30 other languages. I think it would be cool if we translated our wiki into another language. Other wiki's don't have every page translated, so we dont have to translate everything. What are your guy's opinions?Read more >
Hey, this last week has been a great milestone for our wiki. In the last week we have had so many new contributors and viewers, and just because the giver movie is out, I hope you don't leave. So, yeah...
Oh, and we have a new poll on our the wiki home page.
And a question to anyone who watched the giver movie. Who are Dinah and Robbie? Does anyone know who they are?Read more >
Hello everybody! I'm corious on what your guys thoughts would be if other books in The Giver series get film aduptations. I personally would if they didn't make it with similar advertsing to The Giver where they were just trying to sell to the audence of Divergent and Hunger Games and to a group of people who would enjoy it for what it actually could be. Also, I think relesing Messenger before Gathering Blue would make more sense so that more people with actually know how Gathering Blue is connected to The Giver and would actually see Messenger instead of watching The Giver then Gathering Blue and giving up after that point due to not enough connection.
Anyways, leave your thoughts in the comments!Read more >
I literally just got out of the theater, and I have to say, it was amazing. Don't worry, I'm not going to spoil it! I have only a few things to say.
1. It was very different from the book.
2. It may have been better than the book.
3. There was a mention of something that was in Gathering Blue, but not the Giver. This may leave room for the sequel!
Personally, I loved the movie and hope that there'll be one for Gathering Blue. What are your thoughts?Read more >
Lately I've been seeing a lot of irrelevant information going into articles as well as irrelevant categories being added to categories. So just a reminder, if I see to much of this from one user, you will be blocked for a week, first offense. Second offense will be longer. So please pay attention to what you are doing. If it's an accident I get it. But I hate wasting an hour fixing people's mistakes. And if you're doing it on purpose, it's really annoying. Don't do it to raise our rank on the wiki, cuz in my mind, your rank when you do that is dead zero. Thank You! Sorry for putting out a sour note but it had to be done to keep myself sane. Once again Thank You!Read more >
Our 100th article is out! Thanks to everyone who has made this possble. When I first joined this wiki september of 2013, we only had 59 article. 41 articles in less than a year. Thank you once again. Visit our 100th article, Renate Stuurman.Read more >

Okay our goal for completion is in five days, the 15th. We still have a lot to be done. We need to expand stubs, especially actor and actress pages. We need to add character templates to all character, actor and producer pages. And of course, make actor pages. We need 8 more articles to get 100. Let's see it throug!!!Read more >

Hey! My class just finished reading The Giver (pain in the neck having to keep my mouth shut- and then the teacher claims that Gathering Blue and Messenger aren't the sequels, but Son apparently is), and I'm back with the book refreshed in my mind!
I was searching through Google, trying to find stills from The Giver movie. But instead, I found something equally as epic- comics!
These comics by Lucy Kinsley depict certain scenes in the Giver, such as the airplane overheard, the Ceremony, and the apple.

Since The Giver movie comes out in only a few more months (four and a half), I though that I might tell you a few little known facts about the movie!
- A quote from Lois Lowry about the Giver movie: “The film rights have been out there for 15 years now,” she said. “And every now and then, some big studio gets involved, and some major player gets involved. And then time passes, and it all collapses again…So it’s out there, and I should be feeling excited, as if now is the time it’s actually going to be made. But this has happened so often before that I’ve become kind of sanguine about it.”
- The movie is in full color. There will be no black and white parts like in the book.
- The pills that community members take every morning have been changed to …
I just wanted to say that I love the new makeover to the wiki. Thank you Asnow89. It looks wonderful, and has a great new logo. I really apreciate it.Read more >
First of all, I just wanted to give a big thank you to Asnow89 for helping out with the awesome new pages! The front page has been given a total makeover, complete with polls, videos, and links. The other pages have been given new backgrounds, and new templates for our editors.
This is the first step to reconstructing this wikia. Now that we have a cool new look, it's time for big time editing. Lots of revising our articles, and improving their quality. We'd appreciate it if you told your friends, so that they can help to.
I'd like to make a goal for the clean up to be finished. How about August 15? That's the day that The Giver comes out as a movie for the first time!

Hello! I'm mycastleofbooks, and I just learned that I'm a new Admin of this Wiki!
I know that I'll probably be getting a lot of help when the Giver movie comes out and the books get more exposure, but until then, I can use all the help I can get!
Before we construct more, we'll need to reconstruct- removing vandalism, fixing grammar errors, rebuilding pages.
But once that's done, we can work on adding new pages, and focusing somewhat on the other books besides just The Giver. I've noticed that Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son don't have as much info on pages relating to them as the Giver, and I'd like to fix that.
Thanks!Read more >
