    Biter's page says he was "part of the foraging company who captures Ser Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth near Maidenpool." But it also says he doesn't appear in ASOS, and indeed I can't find a reference for him being there. Is there one?

    Is it possible it's counting guests? Do you see me? I just went to your profile and it showed two users including me.

    This is pretty minor, but is it possible to get more specific timestamps for posts between 1 and 24 hours ago or before the current week? Also, I'd like an option to use absolute timestamps (e.g. "November 23, 2015 at 6:30 p.m." rather than "30 minutes ago") for all posts.

    It goes in the opposite direction. I think the numbers should look like: Arya IX: 16, 21, 15 Dany IV: 10, 13, 9 So it's going from a 7-page difference to a 5-page one. I realized that this analysis of chapter lengths could allow me to find errors more easily than checking manually, so I copied the table for AGOT into Excel and used it to calculate the ratio between the wiki-derived and expected (based on the US paperback, which I have confirmed) chapter lengths. Here are all the chapters in AGOT that were more than 10% shorter or longer than expected: So I would suggest checking the page numbers for chapters 27, 31, 35, 36, 37 in the US hardcover and 60 and 64 in the EPUB edition.

    I'm not certain I follow? Arya IX is the chapter before Dany IV so moving the start of Dany IV two pages makes Arya IX two pages shorter/longer.

    All the other page numbers are the same, so I think it is a typo. Edit: To strengthen my case: Consider the lengths of Arya IX and Daenerys IV in three different editions -- US hardcover (1999), US paperback (2000), UK hardcover (1998) -- based on the page numbers on the wiki page. Arya IX: 16, 23, 15 Dany IV: 10, 11, 9 Comparing the page numbers of the last chapter (719, 956, 699) we see that the US paperback has about 33% more pages than the US hardcover and 37% more than the UK hardcover. If we attempt to predict the length of the two chapters in the paperback by their length in the US hardcover, we get about 21.3 and 13.3; using the UK hardcover numbers, we get 20.5 and 12.3. This lines up much better with my proposed correction, under which Arya IX would be 21 pages and Dany IV 13 pages. And since the hardcover editions referenced are from before 2000, that means that there would have to be something particularly odd about the 2000 edition, rather than something changing after 2000. (I typed that up and then thought "wait, maybe this is overkill", but then I already had it typed so I figured might as well post...)

    Finished checking; found one error. In the US mass-market paperback edition of ACOK, Daenerys IV starts on page 696 rather than 698. My copy would appear to be the August 2005 Bantam Spectra mass market reissue edition, for what that's worth.

    I too would like the plain text editor back. BBCode still seems to work for the most part. I did have trouble trying to use BBCode to quote a specific post (with the user who posted it and the time in the quote header, and a link back to the post, as above), although I'm not 100% confident I remembered the code correctly.

    Has anyone checked that the page numbers in the Table of Contents are correct? In particular, the US hardcover page number for AGOT Daenerys IV looks suspicious to me, as the lengths of that chapter and the previous don't seem to match up with other editions. I own the first four books in paperback and ADWD in hardcover, all US editions. The ADWD US hardcover numbers are correct, and I'll check the US paperback numbers for the other four later.

    Oppo appears in ADWD: Edit: I can't find a mention of him in the AFFC chapter cited, though. The dwarf's head presented to Cersei then is a sparrow's -- the one Brienne meets in Duskendale, it seems.

    In the Chapters Table of contents page, the following links are incorrect: ACOK Chapter 66 (link goes to chapter 68) ASOS Chapter 67 (link goes to chapter 66) ASOS Chapter 72 (link goes to chapter 73) Also, A Dance with Dragons Chapter 4 is listed as "A Dance with Dragons-Chapter 4" instead of "Bran I" The sidebar for ADWD Chapter 13 (Bran II) shows it as Tyrion III.

    The "A Dance With Dragons" section on Myrcella's page seems to be conjecture, and has no citations.

    Making my way slowly through Pattern at the moment. I regret my decision not to make a "What order should I read K.J. Parker in?" thread.
