Hey Lavi, just so you know a link to Imageshack, like on Image:Amaterasumug.jpg, is not a proper source for an image. You need to cite the original source. - Brandon Rhea (talk) (contribs) 02:01, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
- Ehhh, I'll get to that. Don't ban me!! --Lavi Talk 02:02, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
- I added them back in. You can use them, Lavi, since you're from SWRP. - Brandon Rhea (talk) (contribs) 14:38, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
- I'm having trouble connecting too. I'm spending time here to wait for the forums to start connecting again. Today is a pretty bad time for the server to disappear. --Lavi Talk 23:36, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
- I think back now. :) --Lavi Talk 23:47, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
- Oh, never mind. My webpage loaded a saved version of the forum from 1:30 this evening. >.< --Lavi Talk 23:48, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Heya, Lavi, 'tis Storm. Please add at least one line of content to Selena's Ruan within twenty four hours or myself or one of my administrator colleagues will be forced to delete it, which we don't want. Cheers. -- (talk) (contributions) 19:27, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
Video sourcing Edit
- I was just seeing how the thing works out. I didn't even notice it was uploaded. It'll be up in a minute. --Lavi (talk) 03:55, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
Re: Proposal Edit
Here’s the issue I see with this. Your wiki looks half-decent enough to where it’s probably going to really improve in time, but from what you’ve told me it seems to have a lot of OMG DRAMA ON DA INTERNTZ issues that need to be worked out. Star Wars Fanon has its fair share of kinks, sure, but we’re pretty much beyond that petty drama, which also plagues a lot of other wikis. We also have our share of garbage on this wiki, but the quality of the top content we put out is vastly superior to all of that. An issue I see is that most fan fiction wikis, this wiki and your wiki not being counted, are total garbage. Their members suck, their average content sucks, and their top content sucks too.
Now everything I’m saying would seem to support what you’re saying about those wikis needing help. That’s true, it does support what you’re saying. That being said, we’re currently in the process of a mass deletion drive, we’re preparing for a mass unsourced images deletion drive, we’re going to be going through and categorizing all of our images, and we’re hopefully going to be deleting even more garbage content than what we’re set to delete on July 28th. I say this because a) most of those other fan fiction wikis really wouldn’t be able to help with that since they don’t even come close to enforcing the rules that we’re enforcing right now, and b) this wiki needs to be focusing on its own problems so we can finally get out from under the shadow of the crap-filled years of 2006 and 2007.
Your idea is a noble one. I think if you guys and your wiki want to do it, you should. The only thing I would take out of your proposal is competitions, as wiki’s are meant to be competing with one another. That’s one of the major issues with what Wikia recently did in allowing anyone to create wikis without going through the request process, and allowing them to create additional Star Wars fanon wikis or new Wookieepedias, etc. While there are multiple wikis, all of Wikia is meant to be a community rather than a group of individual websites that are competing against one another to see who can be better than the other.
Although you guys should definitely do it if you want to, I don’t think the members of SWF will want to be a part of it for a variety of reasons that I’ll sum up here in a tl;dr version: one, most people won’t see the need of bring fan fiction wikis closer together; two, most people will want to continue the positive growth of this wiki rather than spend their time doing it for others; three, I don’t think the members will see any real benefits for our wiki, but rather only benefits for other smaller wikis; and four, as the fifteenth largest Wikia wiki and the second largest Star Wars wiki, SWF would likely end up having to take a leading role in this which we simply do not have time for. But hey, I could be wrong. Feel free to propose it in the consensus track and see what everyone else things. It’s the community members, not the Council of Seers, that would decide something like that.
Special invitation for LaviBookman!Edit
Hey, you! Yes, you!
You're cordially invited to the 7th Annual Wiki Awards on the Star Wars Fanon Wiki! Come nominate, procrastinate, marinate, and pontificate over the best and brightest of the community's offerings with us! Sample the choicest works with your critical eye (monocle sold separately) and submit your own works for a chance to be enshrined in the annals of Star Wars Fanon history. You might write whatever you want to because it's fun, but getting shiny awards and bragging rights doesn't hurt either, right? We didn't think so.
Don't force yourself into exile, or look for alternative activities this winter. Whether your work is one of the myriad incarnations of Revan, a Sith Lord with a hard-to-pronounce name, or some random teenager's pet pittin, you'll find an entry where it belongs. (Editor's note: "Best Incarnation of Revan" and "Best Hard-To-Pronounce-Sith" did not make the categories list this year.) It's time to break out the ancient Sith armor and capes, the dress uniforms for every soldier, and something to catch the eye for every pretty lass. And did I mention our sponsors include Sarth's Darths, provider of the finest black capes in the galaxy? Join our star-crossed, er…star-studded collection of Star Wars Fanon administrators including Brandon Rhea, Goodwood, and Trak Nar as we celebrate the individualism and creativity on this wiki. And if you thought this announcement was cheesy, you ain't seen nothing yet. (Consider this a warning to those, like Fiolli, who are lactose intolerant.)
So fire up the hyperdrive, hope it doesn't catapult you a few millennia forwards or backwards in time, and head on over to the Seventh Wiki Awards. We'd love for you to nominate deserving works (including yours!) and help us choose the best entries for this year! We can't pick between all the entries without you! And if you see any other special snowflakes who need invited to the extravaganza, just slap this message on their talk page to spread some holiday cheer… or something.
So from two folks who've contributed far more at Wookieepedia than here, who habitually bring you either terrible puns or delicious pasta, please accept our sincerest invitation to the Seventh Wiki Awards. And remember, we're doing this all for the community, because that's what really matters on this wiki. Right? Yeah…
Hi, sorry to bother! Edit
Hello, sorry to bother you on this Wikia. Why am I not confronting this issue (at least currently) at the Naruto Fanon Wiki? Because I've been banned. This is what I'm dying to discuss with you. I have had many of my pages deleted without warning; no tags, no mass delete categories added, no notices left on the talk page. All of this was done by Prodigy. Chances are, you'd probably listen to him more than you would listen to me, because he's an admin. Let met explain to you what I've been accused of.
I'm fully aware that he's an admin, but I strongly beleive that he should atleast tell his victims what he is expecting of a page, aside from relentlessly deleting everything a user put so much effort into. Here's what I supposedly did:
Breaking the Manual of Style. Here's my page: (hopefully it hasn't been deleted. If not, you can check it's history). Page: www.narutofanon.wikia.com/Shun_Kimoko. As you can see, not a regulation on the manual of style was broken, nor was it broken on any of his Jutsu pages. I did nothing to break the rules on a page, with the exception of a very vulgar and violent character - Ami Hyuga, whom had alot of bad content on her page. I deleted this page myself, so it's history now. Why I'm Arguing:
Glue Release: My element, Glue Release, was deleted. Yes, I know it sounds odd, however, you will see how legit it is, compared to "Candy Release" (because, this is what David and Prodigy have compared it to). Glue release is simply manipulating the earth and water elements in order to create a gooey, sticky substance with a high viscosity (aka, glue). When this substance is brought fourth, it can be freely manipulated. Why was it deleted? My character's techniques seemed stupid and full of nonsense to Prodigy and David. My character's techniques consisted of "Glue Hearts" (sounds strange, I know, but let me explain). The glue hearts are hearts made of glue (in other words, the glue was manipulated and shaped into that of a heart). After being shaped, these hearts will be imbued with fire release to give it a more deadly property. The shape simply serves as a distraction. (Technique names: Glue Release: Kiss of Doom; one heart blown out of mouth. Glue Release: Kiss Kiss Barrage; many hearts released). Not only that, these hearts stick to the opponent (hence its glue-like properties). This, however, seemed like nonsense and stupidity in the eyes of Prodigy and David, thus, it was deleted without warning. Everything... even the element itself. To make it more legit, I was planning on renaming the element to "Latex Release" (it makes a bit more sense, if you ask me). I can't, now. Because I've been permanently banned for voicing my rightful opinion. Proof: http://narutofanon.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:57900#12 At first, I approached the situation very abruptly (see this thread: http://narutofanon.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:57752), however, I was repremended. In turn, I approached it in a nicer manner (the first url seen).
Second argument; my character's weaponry. Apparently, water with chili pepper powder and special oil (pepper spray) is "too modern". Again, it sounds strange, however, there are stranger things in the naruto verse (sexy techniques & 1000 years of death, ect). My pepper spray page was deleted without warning, same with it's technique (the pepper spray technique; by focusing chakra into the liquid, the acidity levels are boosted, and the amount of spray released from one pump is also increased. The rank of the technique is "C"). This was all deleted.
Another one of my "deleted weapons" is the love bomb. It's simple; a paper bomb and a small flash bomb hidden inside a heart-shaped locket large enough to store its hidden contents. With the ignition of the paper bomb, the flash bomb will be ignited by the resulting explosion. Simple. The heart locket also serves as a disguise, and an accessorie. This too was deleted because it was "foolish and stupid".
I know that my character has an odd style of techniques/disguises, but what can you say? Every ninja thinks differently, and that's what David and Prodigy fail to understand. I personally believe that Prodigy was abusing his power, that's just me though.
Please resolve this issue, because what I've stated was 100% true. I want to continue contributing to the wiki, however, I'm currently banned because of my "bad behavior". Please help!Here's a screenshot. I simply corrected what needed correction:
- Hi there. We prefer not to have non-Star Wars Fanon issues discussed here on the wiki. Feel free to post this on Lavi's Community Central wall. Thanks! - Brandon Rhea (talk) 05:22, November 23, 2012 (UTC)
- I replied at your Community Central talk page, FortressSwan. Please reply there. --れび (talk to Lavi!) 02:10, November 27, 2012 (UTC)
