New 'aka' field in Template:Infobox character‎

I noticed that |titles = had many entries for several characters that weren't really titles, so please move non-titles to the new |aka = field of the template.

See this change for an example:

Looks like the movie has the green light!

See what we have so far at Downton Abbey movie. Some media outlets remain skeptical, but this has been the most official news about a potential movie.

Downton Abbey Prequel

Fellowes was not finished with DA and there were rumours about an upcoming movie, but it seems it could be a prequel... Anyone can confirm this?
Hollywood reporter
Telegraph
Dailymail.co.uk
CBS News
Pros: Cora as central character, young Violet in her young sassy days
Contras: Fellowes' writing, not to see most of the actual characters (some of them weren't born)
What do you think?

Downton Abbey in Belgium

We have moved to Belgium from the US and I would like to see the 6th season of Downton Abbey. Does anyone know when the series starts in Belgium and what station carries the series? Thank you!

Michelle Dockery's fiancé dies of cancer at 34

Life imitating art, as Michelle Dockery's fiancé tragically dies of cancer.
It appears Lady Mary's tragic love life is not limited to on screen, and that Michelle may be as strong (in a good way) as her onscreen counterpart. 
Tears as hundreds turn out at service to mourn Michelle Dockery's fiancé ahead of funeral service today following his death from 'rare form of cancer' at age 34

New high "WAM" score

Wikia uses a ranking called "WAM score" for individual wikias. Downton Abbey just set its all time best ranking , as of this post, sitting at 54 from a previous best of 55. Way to go.

Mobile stuff

Many of you may already know, but there are Wikia apps based on this wiki for both Apple iOS and Android. So if you have a smartphone, check them out. I tried to make them look decent, but more feedback is good. Some of the screenshots in the stores for the app are silly (Downton Abbey Walkthroughs!) because the app is based on games stuff.

Slight tweak to front page

Hey guys :)
Just happened by and noticed that the front page was a little ... off. Apparently in this edit from 2012, Tycio, who may or may not be the wiki's founder, Will1996000, introduced a little bit of code without comment to make it explicit who had founded the wiki. And though that notice was eventually taken down, the code which created it remained.
This forced the content on the front page to begin at the bottom of the advert on the right — and, thus, a huge gap on the top of the page. I trimmed the last vestige of that edit away today — and the page snapped back into a "normal" text flow.
Hope you guys don't mind. If you do, leave your comments below. :)

Season four vehicles posted

The vehicles appearing in series 4 has now been posted to vehicles of Downton Abbey. I have identified as many as I could, but there are still a couple I have not found, or even figured out the manufacturer. Once the manufacturer is known, it generally isn't that hard to then find the model and often even the year. 
Error checking, adding additional information, etc. is always appreciated.

Possibly changing the title/section title/wordmark font

So currently most of the titles and section title graphics are using a font called 'Eccentric' which has a distinctive Art Deco look, but is hard to read. I have been working on new title and section title graphics that use the same font, 'Bernhard Modern', as the Downton Abbey logo (the one used in the wordmark).
I will upload what I've worked on so everyone can take a look. Once everyone has taken a look, I will gather feedback on whether we should make the change over. I've done new versions of most all the titles, section titles, and wordmark, but I still need to redo the circular portraits.

Update
See the announcement about the new front page preview which you can see here: Downton Abbey Wiki/newfont
Here are the new font graphics for your perusal...
