  • Hi LilyLacreag, how do you know Anne's date was March 23 1886 in anime counterpart, but in novel was March 5 1965, it is actually a fictional or what else?

    • Hi! I was not aware of the anime date until you added it here on the wiki. I immediately found the episode online and it only confirmed what you added here. We can build on that information to create a timeline for the anime universe. I think Anne was 11 (like in the book) at the time of her arrival to Green Gables so the first episode of the anime must take place in 1897. Then we can track down the other references to complete the timeline.

      For the novel timeline, I recommend the Dating clues section on this page. We use Rilla of Ingleside as the main reference point because it specifically states it is set during World War I. Then we went back in time, using the ages of Anne's children for reference – Rilla's age being the most obvious one. That way we calculated Anne's birth year to be 1865.

      You cannot find this year in the books. Rilla of Ingleside was the first book to specify the time setting and the previous novels would only vaguely imply the story takes place in the late 19th century. There are some articles which present another timeline, based on other references from the books – such as the use of electricity or the introduction of telephone. These occurred much later in the real life than the proposed 1870s/80s setting for the first three novels. Montgomery most likely decided to use the WW1 setting after experiencing the war herself – and she did not consider the references she made in her previous books. 

      Finally, the birthdate. From the books we only know Anne was born in March. The prequel novel Before Green Gables specifically states Anne was born on March 5. Some adaptations (like Green Gables Fables and Project Green Gables) decided to use this information and their counterparts of Anne celebrate their birthdays on March 5 too.

  • Hey! I noticed that there has been categories & articles created for animals featured in the books but also in animated series. I was wondering if that applies for Road to Avonlea & Anne with an E? Or let me rephrase the question, would it be okay to create articles for animals & pets featured in those to adaptations? For example the horse Belle in AWAE? Or is that seen as non-relevant information?

    • Yes, I just noticed that you've polished them a bit. Hope they weren't all too messy! When mentioning something that has taken place in an episode, I'm supposed to make a reference & then in the reference list just write the episode title & link to the episode article, is that correct?

    • For the most part, they were OK. There were some tiny issues with the new articles - the Sullivan live-action pages have yellow infoboxes. I have a tip regarding editing new / empty pages. What I usually do is that I copy the code from the Source mode of already existing article from the same universe (like Eliza Ward) and paste it into the new page. Change the necessary details and there you have it!

      Regarding the references. All the pages should have a Reference section and "reflist" template. If they don't have them, feel free to add them. :) Currently, we don't have many references on our pages but we've started using them for the timelines and sometimes even for the character pages. The references for episodes should look like those I edited yesterday. - "Episode title" (No italics, quotation marks). For films - name of the film in italics. For books... well, we have a whole guide for that.

  • Is it possible to join in on the fun with the project of editing/expanding the articles related to Anne with an E? Thought I should ask just in case, to be sure

      Loading editor
    • Sure! Go ahead! The project is still on and you can get points for your edits on AwaE-related pages!

  • I watched "Anne of Green Gable: A New Beginning" awhile back. Gilbert's gravestone reads:

    Dr. Gilbert John Blythe

    June 18, 1890 - Aug 19, 1942

    Killed in action at Dieppe, France, etc.

    But his page on the Wiki lists his birth year as 1887, so I was curious as to which would be considered canon.

    • Hi! I am not really sure myself. I think the year 1887 was added by one of our users because they had found this information on the official Sullivan Entertainment website. However, there are many inconsistencies within the SE timeline. 

      AoGG: The Sequel is set in 1902 – as mentioned in the newspaper article about the Mary, Queen of Scots production. At that time, Anne was 18. It means she was born in 1884 and came to Green Gables in 1897 when she was 13. Anne and Gilbert get engaged the following year (1903). 

      The year 1903 is generally believed to be the starting point of Road to Avonlea series. There are some mentions of Marilla visiting Anne and her newborn baby. This makes perfect sense when we consider Anne and Gilbert's recent engagement. Marilla dies in Season 3, which takes place in 1905 or 1906. 

      However, AoGG: The Continuing Story starts in 1915, claiming it takes place 5 years after AoGG: The Sequel. During that time, Anne was supposedly engaged to Gilbert and worked as a teacher in the Hopetown Asylum. The year of their engagament is changed to 1910 and her birth year would be 1891/92. In this timeline, Gilbert's birth year as written on his tombstone (1890) would also make sense.

      Moreover, the new timeline ignores the existence of Road to Avonlea and the canon introduced in its episodes – Anne's baby, Marilla's death or the fact that RtA ends a year or two before WW1 and covers approximately 10 years of life in Avonlea. If Anne had been engaged in 1910, she would have gone to school with the King children and been taught by Hetty King, instead of Mr. Phillips and Miss Stacy. 

      In conclusion, I don't know. The year 1887 is obviously not correct and 1890 works only in the timeline used in Anne 3 and 4.

    • Wow, what a confused timeline Sullivan has created lol. I wished they would've just built on the canon established in Road to Avonlea, instead of just doing whatever they wanted in Continuing Story. And A New Beginning completely ignores the canon established from Anne 1 (the only reason to watch in my opinion is to see Rachel Lynde and Hetty King once more).

      Aw well, thank you very much for your detailed explantation of this muddle timeline. I guess I can add his middle name, "John", to his page since that can't be contradicted.

  • Hello, nice to meet you. I found a picture of Blair Stanley's gravestone [1] on an old website. I think the birth year says 1864, but I can't be sure. I'm not even sure if this counts as canon, so I thought I would tell an admin first.

      Loading editor
    • Hi! I would say it counts as canon if it's displayed within the actual episode (such as John Blythe's gravestone in Anne with an E). I cannot tell from this picture. It could be both 1861 or 1864. Maybe try rewatching the episodes and find a better view of the writings?

    • The tombstone is only shown from the back during the episode he dies. I'll keep watching to see if its in any other episodes.

  • Hi Lily. May I ask you for a little Slovak translation? Here and here. Thanks in advance

    (That wiki contains many scripts and most of them are used by hundreds of wikis, unfortunately not many scripts are translated into Slovakian)

  • I can not understand why you as FANDOM deleted the picture?

    I see you say in my email that it was a "Duplicated/superseded file" but what does that mean?

    You gave the option to include a pic in the new topic, and it was not copyright pic or any such a thing.

    Link Adaptions Board = wiki/Thread:19648 

    Or here =  https://anneofgreengables.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:19648

    What was done wrong?

    • Hi Lily ~ I am very happy that you did not get irritated by my many questions.

      Now I see that the format and functioning is very different here at Wiki than it is at other forums that I have been on, so I will try to adjust to the new stuff as time goes on.

      I also appreciate that you edited in the picture to my comment, because now I see how it is done.

    • Well, I am here to answer your questions. :) 

      Wiki is not just a casual forum. It is like Wikipedia. An online encyclopedia dedicated to the works of L.M. Montgomery and the Anne of Green Gables adaptations. We mostly try to create pages covering information from all of the sources. Forum is just one of the many possibilities here.

  • Hi Lily,

    I just realized I must have made all kinds of extra work for you with the quotes and pictures I added...I noticed you've been editing them!  I'm sorry for causing you trouble! :(

    Is it all right if I continue to add things to the wiki? I've been looking at your edits to see what you do that's different from the way I was doing them, and I'll use your edits as my models when adding new pictures and quotes and things.

    • Hi Felicity,

      I saw your edits a few days ago and I had time so I started editing them to better suit our layout. I am still busy in real life so I couldn't edit everything. I am happy to see that you are very prolific and initiative. :) It was no trouble at all, you are doing very well. Feel free to contribute! ;)

      If you are interested in the proposed ideal layout for the Road to Avonlea episodes, you can check out the page for the first episode, "The Journey Begins". I still have plans to update the other episode pages, but my real life agenda prevents me from doing it right now.

    • Thanks so much, Lily! :)  I'll check out the page for "The Journey Begins!"  I'm so excited to get to contribute to this wiki!

    • You're welcome. There is also one thing concerning the pictures. It's great that you're adding categories. However, we usually use only the episode related categories as they are in fact subcategories for seasons, TV shows etc. (E.g. you only need to use Images from The Journey Begins, not Images from Season 1 or Images from Road to Avonlea. I hope it's clear.)

  • Hi,

    I have upload the German Cover of the book Rainbow Valley and put it in the Gallery: Rainbow Valley, but I don't see the tab "German" in the page.

    Did I do something wrong or can you see the Image?

    Greets Klappi

    • It works now. :) The thing is that you edited the main gallery (Gallery:Rainbow Valley) before you created the German gallery. The main gallery page usually refreshes itself, but it wasn't that case today and the page needed to be refreshed manually for the link to work. (Next time just click on the Edit button, don't edit anything and then click on the Publish button.)
