Yippee! A new book about Pern went on sale!

In honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the Dragonriders of Pern series, Gigi does her mother proud, adding to the family tradition of spinning unputdownable tales that recount the adventures of the brave inhabitants of a distant planet who battle the pitiless adversary known as Thread.

New Main Page

Having finished work on articles about Weyrs, Holds and Crafts, as I promised for a long time, I'm made a new design for the Main Page.

Cheers! On the eve of the release of the new book, the design has become stylish and youth, which I hope will be attractive to the younger generation of readers. Main Page has become shorter, due to the removal of the Gallery of Books, but more informative, thanks to the Navigation section, which covers most of the content of the wiki. In the old version from the Main Page you could only get on the books and a dozen articles, the links to which were in the right column.

Currently, only the "Random Book" block does not work on the new Main Page. There is only one book added, but in the future it is planned to add the possibility of accidentally appearing one of all existing books. I will do this after I finish updating the articles about the books and their covers.

In addition, since the new design was incorrectly displayed in the mobile version of the wiki, I also made a new mobile version of the Main Page.

About my work

Hello, dear readers of the wiki.

I want to share with you my joy and pride. I recently completed a lot of work. I updated infoboxes of Weyr, Holds and Crafts. This work included not only updating templates, but also updating all articles and putting in order the categories tree (including - the categories of characters).

Let them still far from the ideal, but it's already much better. At least all the articles on the same topic are in one place, and not scattered throughout the wiki, cheers! And the mess in the special pages of the wanted / uncategorized / unused pages has significantly decreased.

The next step is going to do articles about books and stories.

Oldtimer Wyerfolk

When Lessa brought the five wyers forward, what happened to all the support wyerfolk? Did each dragon carry 3-4 people and their belongings? If they were abandoned in the past there would be some kind o legend of just dragons and riders disappearing. Where did all the wyerfolk go? - Pyewacket

Inactive Bureaucrats

The Pern Wiki has 9 users that are listed as sysops.  Only 3 are currently active.  Additionally, there are 5 bureaucrats, with 4 of those not making any contributions for at least the past 5 years.
Per Fandom policy, I would like to open this discussion to see if there is a consensus to remove the inactive bureaucrats.
Please provide your input during the next 3 days.
Thanks,

Egg-Heavy Golds Going Between

I could have sworn I read in one of the books that gravid queens should not go Between or they might lose their clutch.  I believe the reference was made regarding queens arrriving late to a Gather because they had to fly straight over land from the weyr.  Does anyone recognize this and can you direct me to the book it was in?

Pronounce Piemur

Someone, please, spell Piemur for me, phonetically?  How in the heck do you pronounce it. I have two ideas, maybe they're both wrong.
PIE-mer, or
pee-AY-mer (ay means the long-A)

Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern, HUGE plot holes.

This book is driving me insane. It's bad enough that we know from the balad exactly what will happen...but why don't they just stop the plague outbreak at the source by traveling through time and stopping the sailors from either rescuing the creature or returning with it. And why doesn't someone hop back a few days in time and stop Moreta from overdoing it or going at all? I don't understand why there are any tragedies in these books, when TIME TRAVEL is so easy, casual, and so without consequence throughout.
