I have a quick question about PBB categories. If categories such as "Vietnamese-Filipino" contestants exists, would you also have to do a Japanese-Filipino contestants for contestants such as Kiara Takahashi?
Hi Jruoy! I'm Lostris, and I'll be taking over from Mandy as Big Brother's Wiki Manager, since she has since her introduction been hired as a full-time staff. So while she will assist as a community manager, it is my job to serve as your direct line to Fandom staff and as a general community support with anything and everything to do with this wiki. I am not here take over, I am just here to provide more on site support should you so desire. I will also contact the rest of the admins to introduce myself and inform them of this change.

Hey Jruoy! My name is Mandy, and I’m the Fandom Wiki Manager assigned to the BB Wiki. No worries, I am not here to take over. My job is to help the community and serve as a liaison between contributors and full-time Fandom staff. I will be your primary point of contact should any assistance be needed, so if you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., don't hesitate to leave a message on my wall and I will do my best to help. If I am unable to solve your issue, I will be able to get in contact with a staff member that can. I will also be getting in contact with the rest of the active admins in this community to introduce myself and inform them of my position. In the meantime, please let me know if there's anything I can do for you or if you have any further questions regarding my role, and I will get back to you as soon as I can. With that being said, I have a lot of amazing ideas on how to improve this wiki, but I can only work my magic with the permission of the admins here.
Do you have any information about the next batch of PBB8 Housemates? ABS-CBN has announced eight of them, but I don't know if I should tag them as official housemates or not. Could you also add the biographies of the housemates if I don't soon? Thanks!
For the PBB8 housemate pages, do we put all of the new housemates' real names as their page name? When you created the pages for Batch 3, they all had their nickname, but in the previous batches, Yamyam, Apey, Lie, Jelay, etc. had their real names as their page name? Do we use their real name instead of their nickname. If we do, PBB8 Batch 1 Sansan and Krist needs to be changed too.
Hmm. I haven't really thought of this but the production use the real names but some I guess preferred to use their nicknames that's why they're addressed as such like Yamyam, Lie etc.
Okay to make this clear, I've decided to just use the ones given by the production, the names stated on their profile cards. But I'll probably still put their names on the biography section for further information.
