  • Hi Dion,

    I reverted your edits to the events pages regarding Lily's deaths as we go by the date the Hollyoaks episode aired, rather than the first look. Lily's death was aired in the first look episode on 10th April 2019, but aired on 11th April 2019.

    • I know that, but it said on her order of service that she died on 10 April 2019

    • Thanks. However, I think the events page should reflect the transmission date rather than the in-show date otherwise it gets a bit confusing. Like with Coronation Street, Liam Connor's death episode was transmitted on 17th October, which was set on 16th October - but no episode was aired on 16/10/2008.

    • but won't that be a bit confusing, because not all events in hollyoaks are on-screen or transmitted like births of characters, off-screen events, etc.

    • But normally there are other things to indicate if an event has occurred off-screen, such as the character's final appearance being before the death or an event taking place prior to the character's first episode.

    • I just think that it's not good to have a mix of events based on real-life transmission dates and events based on soap dates. But I do completely understand your point, so it's up to you :)

    • Yes, now that you've brought it up. I think using the in-show dates would lead to someone changing it anyway (eg: someone else might have changed Lily's DOD back to 11th April), but I don't see how anyone would get confused either way, no matter which we do...

    • I guess we could include some rules about this in the manual of style.

    • Yes, I've been meaning to update the Manual of Style and some of the templates.
