Signatures for GMT users

I wonder if there's any way to have it so that if you're a GMT (or any non - American) user and you click on the signature button it'll come up with your time? I have to do mine manually. Thanks! --IotV 12:12, 5 January 2009 (GMT)

  • Under your preferences, 'Date and time', you can set your timezone to GMT by setting the difference in hours from UTC. Or you can create your own custom signature template. See Help:Signatures for more info.--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:11, 26 January 2009 (EST)

Jimmy Jean-Louis's Charity 'Hollywood Unites for Haiti'

Hey, I know that you give donations to charities with some of the money generated by the website and I was wondering if you would be willing to give to Jimmy Jean-Louis's Charity 'Hollywood Unites for Haiti'. It is a charity which is trying to help out Haiti which according to Jimmy is really struggling at the moment and has been since it was hit by a hurricane in September. There is more info on Jimmy's site [1] and a website for the charity should be up sometime next week [2]. I feel that this would be a good place for the wiki to give money too as the charity not only aims to raise money but also aims to let people know what is going in Haiti a country so close to the USA. Jimmy is a great guy and would be really thrilled if you could give his charity a good start. Thanks a lot. I have done a interview with him and this is one of the topics which we talked about a lot.--Skywalkerrbf 15:18, 15 January 2009 (EST)

  • Any thoughts on this?


Have you seen my comments about the ExpandTemplates extension and Template:ArchivePrelinks on the test site?--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:43, 26 January 2009 (EST)

  • Not yet, I haven't had a chance to work on the new release for the past week or so. I will read them, though. (Admin 10:47, 26 January 2009 (EST))

Help finding a specific wiki page

There is a page I can't remember its name, where we showcase a side-by-side gallery of a painting and its real-show counterpart frame. It looks like the gallery in this page (here), but it showcases all examples of paintings that resemble real-life shots. Can you help me find it? I wanna save it as a link in my user area...I just can't remember it's name or what it's catalogued under. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 01/26/2009 14:51 (EST)

Can you go to Talk:Peter Petrelli help to set some consensus rule as to what is Peter's current abilities? Thanks. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 15:27, 3 February 2009 (EST)

Can we set up an official IRC channel for this site? There would be a few users, and you can link a Mibbit widgit in the navigation for any users who don't use IRC clients. Spatial 18:37, 3 February 2009 (EST)

Physical Mimicry

  • Can we have a definite hold on the Physical Mimicry theory of mine? As far as we know that's the only speculation that we have as shown in the episode? - Arkillion (Arkillion 13:28, 4 February 2009 (EST))
    • What do you mean? (Admin 13:29, 4 February 2009 (EST))
      • As far as we know he can mimic abilities of other evolved humans such as Mohinder and Tracy by physically touching them, people speculate it is a mixture of both his original ability and his father's ability and some speculate that it was due to the "shunt" keeping him drugged. Can we have Physical Mimicry/Peter's Ability remain open for speculation?
        • Well, the name "Physical Mimicry" is completely off the table because it's an inaccurate term for his ability. The fact that it requires physical contact (it seems) is merely a detail of the ability. I think the article can be left Peter's ability for now while we document exactly what we've observed so far. If we determine through more information in upcoming episodes that it's actually more appropriate to use one of the existing abilities we have then we can merge any relevent information from Peter's ability into that article. There do seem to be some clear differences so far between his ability and the others we've seen so far so I think having Peter's ability for now allows us to collect everything we know about his current ability without the risk of incorrectly claiming it's one of the other abilities we've seen so far. (Admin 13:42, 4 February 2009 (EST))
          • I realise the term "Physical Mimicry" sounds a tad risque, but I had no other way of describing the process of his ability without including mimicry and something physical. Power Mimicry is way too inaccurate/bland. Ability Mimicry is also inaccurate/bland but Physical Mimicry sounded "okay". Heh - Arkillion


i think in the character pages instead of appearing seasone one or two should appear volume --Manwithnoname 17:44, 6 February 2009 (EST)

  • This is actually a pretty good idea, it makes sense considering that we are still in Season 3 but are into the second volume for the season. Adding A Clear and Present Danger to Season 3 can be a bit confusing.--Steelymcbeam 11:07, 8 February 2009 (EST)
    • A Clear and Present Danger is part of Season Three. It's the fourteenth episode of the season and is billed as such in official sources. Making a change like the one proposed is not a bad suggestion, but it would mean restructuring pretty much the entire wiki. However, it should really be discussed at the community portal. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:36, 8 February 2009 (EST)

Spoiler on non-spoiler page

Hi, I just had a question about spoilers on non-spoiler pages... are they not allowed at all? I was under the impression that we could post them as long as they're blacked out using spoilertext. It's been done lots of times before to no consequence. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 22:20, 9 February 2009 (EST)

  • There are differing opinions on it. I am absolutely against the use of the spoilertext template (as I was when it was originally created). When I come across its use I remove the text. Spoilertext doesn't hide text reliably nor does it hide it when viewing diffs in the recent changes. I've had too many things spoiled because of its use. (Admin 22:22, 9 February 2009 (EST))
    • Agree. When the spoilertext template was first created, I thought it was a great solution. That was also at a time when I immersed myself in spoilers and spent a lot of time scouring the net for them, so seeing a spoiler wasn't as sensitive to me. I've since mellowed in that regard. I don't avoid spoilers, but I don't like seeing them unless I choose to see them. I, too, have been disappointed by seeing spoilers when my mouse accidentally crawls over the black text, or when I check diffs on nonspoiler pages. I've also seen computers that don't behave nicely with the spoilertext template, and nothing gets blacked out. If it were up to me, I'd get rid of the template and just say no spoilers on nonspoiler pages. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:36, 10 February 2009 (EST)

German Wiki

Hello. I'm the Admin of the German HeroesWiki (The lady with the white scarf, maybe you remember ;)) and there are some things for you to be done there, an also something I'm wondering about the whole time:

  • Could you please update the statistics? It's February right now, and they are sticking in September. :)
  • We were running into some problems with the toc-template. But I think you got already a message on your user page at the German Wiki. It would be really nice if you could correct this.
  • And, last but not least, I was wondering if you could create namespaces like "graphic novel" and "theory" for our Wiki as well? I mean we can creat pages which are named e.g. "Graphic Novel:Libertad", but it's still defined as a normal article, and not as a graphic novel. We would need the namespaces for "Comic" (graphic novels), "Theorie" (theories) and for portals, which are named "Portal"s as well. Like I said, I was wondering if you could do that.

Thank you for all your help. Lady xph 245 16:01, 16 February 2009 (EST)

  • Admin, I'm not sure if I am able to help with any of this...but I know it's a lot of work. If there's anything I can do, please let me know. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:45, 16 February 2009 (EST)

You seem the best person to ask;

I've hunted down some of the policies but is there any issue with making my sig look like this: -- VanguardLogo.pnganguard, because in other wikis some small images are allowed as long as it doesn't break the line spacing. I want to know before I activate it and get bashed.-- Vanguard 11:01, 18 February 2009 (EST)

  • I don't see a problem with it at all. It's not tacky or obtrusive. Go for it. :) (Admin 12:14, 18 February 2009 (EST))
    • Rock on, many thanks! ----VanguardLogo.pnganguard 12:28, 18 February 2009 (EST)
      • Vanguard, since you have a fancy sig like that, you might want to shorten it by using an autosig so that you can update it easily and so it doesn't crowd the talk pages with extra lines just for your sig code. There's an explanation on how to do so in Help:Signatures, but feel free let me know if you need extra assistance.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:26, 18 February 2009 (EST)
        • Autosig? Yea, a more direct walkthrough would be nice. Unless you're talking about simply typing the tildas and it's automatic, it already is. I don't Copy+paste it every time. But my sig line isn't much different than most others. I could count the characters used to prove this if you want.----VanguardLogo.pnganguard 13:28, 18 February 2009 (EST)
          • Yeah, it's not much longer than normal, but if you want to change the span style or image later on, having an autosig will let you apply the new sig format to all the talk pages on which your signature already appears without having to go back and change all the pages. First, create a page at "User:Vanguard/sig" and put there the code for your signature ([[Image:VanguardLogo.png|19px]][[User:Vanguard|'''<span style="color:green"><strong>anguard</strong></span>''']]). Second, create a page at "User:Vanguard/autosig" and save that page as "{{User:Vanguard/sig}}". Finally, go to your nickname in your preferences and save that field as "--{{User:Vanguard/autosig}}", making sure that the raw signatures checkmark is set. If you still have trouble, let me know.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:39, 18 February 2009 (EST)
            • Why do I need 2 pages for a template? Won't 1 just do? My theory: User:Vanguard/Sig, Plug in {{User:Vanguard/Sig}} in my "nickname" section of preferences, would that work? ----VanguardLogo.pnganguard 14:00, 18 February 2009 (EST)
              • You need 2 pages because the wiki automatically substitutes the contents into the signature, meaning if you put a template in your nickname, it automatically substitutes the contents of that template instead of listing it on the page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:04, 18 February 2009 (EST)
                • You lost me. Would it be too much to ask if you went ahead and did it D:----VanguardLogo.pnganguard 14:24, 18 February 2009 (EST)
                  • Ok, I've added the subpages for you. You still need to save your nickname field of your preferences as "--{{User:Vanguard/autosig}}".--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:40, 18 February 2009 (EST)
                    • Thank you, this wiki is wierd from the one I'm active on.--VanguardLogo.pnganguard 14:58, 18 February 2009 (EST)
                      • You're welcome. Yeah, we are different in some of the ways we implement things. I hope you become more active here. Have a good day. :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:19, 18 February 2009 (EST)

Name Change ?

  • Is it possible for me to get a name change from "Hirovan" to "Ross R. Smith", I'd rather not make multiple accounts, etc. (Hirovan 13:18, 23 February 2009 (EST))
    • Done. (Admin 13:35, 23 February 2009 (EST))

  • What do you mean block him? (Admin 00:50, 24 February 2009 (EST))


  • Additional Question - Do you still need the button graphic/banner made as is on your User:Admin page?
    • I think we're ok for now, but thanks for asking! :) (Admin 11:52, 24 February 2009 (EST))

  • It hasn't come out yet this week. I'm hoping it's just a little late...--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:12, 27 February 2009 (EST)

Annoying ad

Admin, are you able to do anything about that verizon ad at the top of the pages. It rolls itself out and is becoming annoying and inconvenient. -- Elemental Manipulator [ U | T | C ] - When in doubt, ask BTE 02:43, 12 March 2009 (EDT)

  • Seconded. It has to manually be closed on each opening of a new page, and it seems to be the only ad in use right now. -- Tristan0709 talk 02:46, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Agreed. AdBlock doesn't work on it either since the flash object plays directly after opening the page. --Radicell 05:14, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
      • Yes! It's a terrible ad!--Cro Magnon 06:26, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
        • I've seen it too, but not recently. Can somebody take a screenshot of it for Admin? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:21, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
          • I've got a screenshot but I don't know how to send it. Seeing as Admin has been online recently however he's probably seen the ad so it doesn't matter.--Steely McBeam - (talk) 10:42, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
            • It actually looks like the ad has been completely removed... To upload a screenshot, just go to this form, browse for the file on your computer wherever you saved it, and then upload the picture. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:02, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
              • It's still there. - Josh (talk/contribs) 11:17, 12 March 2009 (EDT)
                • I see it now. I'll let NBC know. Thank you. (Admin 11:23, 12 March 2009 (EDT))
  • Just something I thought amusing, it's happening to 9th Wonders too.--Steely McBeam - (talk) 11:58, 12 March 2009 (EDT)


Thanks for adding me, I hope to help. Do I need to add myself to the patrollers page? --IronyUTC CH 12:48, 12 March 2009 (EDT)


How did you put the adverts on the top and on the right on the main page. Just wondering. XxxsacheinxxX 18:25, 13 March 2009 (EDT)

  • For the top I just modified the Monobook.php skin. For the right on the Main Page I wrote a simple MediaWiki extension that would insert the ad code based on a new tag I added so that I'd be able to include the ad inline with the content itself. (Admin 19:39, 13 March 2009 (EDT))
Sorry to bother you again, on the main page, how did you get that border. I know you use the templates: Template:Blurb, Template:Blurbclose, but how does that really work?


In yesterday's press release, NBC announced it will premiere Merlin on Sunday, June 21, 2009. Thought you might like a heads-up. :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:47, 14 March 2009 (EDT)

Useful Explanations For Odd Things in Heroes

Hi Admin, I thought that this page would be a good addition to your list. --Elemental Manipulator [ U | T | C ] - When in doubt, ask BTE 04:42, 20 March 2009 (EDT)


On the talk page for Annapurna you stated you had a request in for the proper spelling of the character's name. I was just wondering if you had heard back from anyone or gotten definitive information from any source. ? Thanks. TheHunter 19:16, 20 March 2009 (EDT)

comment about betamax on my page you posted

IceGhost78 when you said that did you mean using proxies was against the rules? because i use a proxy for protection almost all of the time

  • Using them is not against the rules. Trying to abuse them is. Just be aware that if you use proxies you may find yourself accidentally blocked. (Admin 23:45, 22 March 2009 (EDT))
    • IceGhost78 oh ok thx for replying, sorry i didnt see it before, have a good one

Hiro's current power

I was wondering if there should be a separate page of just Time manipulation for Hiro's current ability. Right now, Time manipulation redirects to Space-time manipulation. I was just wondering your thoughts on the situation. --Bender 22:44, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

Matt's ability

Hey Admin, do you think you could move Matt Parkman, Jr.'s ability to Matt's ability for now? It makes things easier and it follows previous conventions for level six named abilities. Unless you have any objections to that... -Sincerely, Thrashmeister » talk- 00:59, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

Baby Powder?

Hi Admin. Do you recall if adding a strikethrough tag for the title of an article name would break anything? Perhaps you know the appropriate html character code?--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:33, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • Striking out text is done through HTML, so it's not possible for it to be the title of an article. Titles and URLs are characters and any character in a URL would have to be part of a specific character set. (Admin 11:47, 24 March 2009 (EDT))
    • Ah, thanks for the clarification.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:06, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
      • Uncyclopedia has a Template to change the title, it may need some extra things installed (see the talk page). -Lөvөl 18:45, 24 March 2009 (EDT)


Hi, I was wondering i i were to change the skin of the site in my preferences, if that is how it would look for anyone else. I don't want to change it without knowing that first. and have people mad at me. So if you could pass this information down to me it would be much appreciated. Thanks! -- Catalyst · Talk · HL 13:08, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • Nope, don't worry. It only affects you. :) (Admin 13:08, 24 March 2009 (EDT))

Naming Conventions

I've noticed that there have been a lot of problems naming abilities. For a number of abilities we get a semi-cannon name but the consensus goes against it. Is there any way we could get some cleaner cut rules for how we name abilities? ( Talk To Jakk55 ) 17:39, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • Sorry, I do not know if I can discuss other questions, but I think as HeroesWiki is an encyclopaedia open to all, is the name of a hability is not clear in an episode, the truth is that everyone can discuss, and give ideas. (Gabrielense 17:50, 24 March 2009 (EDT))

Re:fan creations

Acknowledged, and now that puts me in a bit of a pickle, as the page was one of User:Catalyst's that I half (shouldnt have) promised him would go to the Mainspace. I moved it there for him, and it probably shoud be moved back. <miffed and regretful sigh> Now what do we do? --SacValleyDweller (talk) 02:08, 30 March 2009 (EDT)

  • I already moved it back and opened up discussion on the talk page to determine consensus, so everything's all set. I'd just recommend trying to get a few other diligent editors to also comment on it so that any issues can be worked out. (Admin 02:11, 30 March 2009 (EDT))

Why no 'preview' feature for uploading images

Has anyone ever asked this question? I know that when I create new pages, or edit existing pages, I am always able to hit the preview button before submitting the change, to check for typos, redlinks, etc...but when uploading new images, it doesn't provide the option to preview the description. You have to upload it, then go back and check to see that the links worked correctly, and then if not, make a subsequent edit to the that time, you can do a preview. Only when initially uploading an image, you can't do a preview. Just a thought...if this could be turned on, it would probably help lesson entry-errors when uploading new images. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 03/30/2009 13:30 (EST)

  • Not a bad idea, but I don't think it's an option in the MediaWiki server we are using or in the newer versions. I checked through the extensions, but didn't find anything regarding this. The new version Admin is working on does show an image of the file that already exists on the server if it matches one, but I understand that's not the same thing.--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:31, 31 March 2009 (EDT)

April Fools' Day

Hi Admin. Just wanted to issue a quick apology about my April Fools' Day edits. They were unnecessary, and as immature as some actions that have gottne people banned, and I would like to apologise. However, I would also point out that they were obviously false, and all links pointed to the Wikipedia article for April Fools Day. I don't wish to defend myself or argue with you, but just thought I'd point it out. Again, sorry for any inconvenience caused or disrespect of the wiki. -- Tristan0709 talk 22:27, 1 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Thank you, that's a very responsible reaction. :) (Admin 01:19, 2 April 2009 (EDT))
    • Thanks. I just feel as if there's a stereotype on this wiki and others of people my age spamming, so I want to be as far away from that as possible. -- Tristan0709 talk 01:26, 2 April 2009 (EDT)
      • Gotcha. I don't even really look at people's ages. The way each person interacts with others is the only thing I really look at. :) (Admin 01:28, 2 April 2009 (EDT))
        • Yeah. Anway, thanks for "forgiving" me, so to speak. :) -- Tristan0709 talk 01:35, 2 April 2009 (EDT)

Name change

Hey ive just created a new account and appear to have a name which is very simular to another user. I would be greatfull if you could change my name to Intuitive Empathic Absorption to avoid confusion when posts are added. My name is currently IntuitiveEmpath and there is another member with the name Intuitive Empath, which im sure you can understand is far too simular. When i created my account the name i originally wanted was Intuitive Empathic Absorption but was blacklisted for some reason.


So you just made your own bot, or is it manually updated?--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:22, 10 April 2009 (EDT)

  • No, no, it's manual. It's just for sending out news such as interviews, etc. (Admin 09:14, 10 April 2009 (EDT))

Cockney Heroes

Hi Admin. You may have noticed, through recent changes, that User:Gabriel Bishop, User:Laughingdevilboy, User:Obelisk52 and I are writing a fan-fic called Cockney Heroes. We are wondering if we were allowed to create a seperate user namespace for it at User:Cockney Heroes amd move evething here. We spoke to MiamiVolts and RGS about this and they said you were the admin allowed to grant multiple users, RGS also said that this was a good idea. We hope we will be allowed to do this as we want some way to difine the pages, thanks --IronyUTC CH 17:40, 2 May 2009 (EDT)

  • As long as you create an actual user account with that name then it will be alright to do this. I recommend not actually using the using the account for editing, but it needs to exist as a placeholder at least. (Admin 20:57, 2 May 2009 (EDT))



Multiple accounts

Hey, Admin. When you get a chance, will you check to see if User:TedGordon, User:Gordonfamily:WilliamBehr, User:Gordonfamily:Katrina, and User:LucasTelekinesis are all the same person using multiple accounts? Thanks so much! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:12, 15 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Yes, it is standard practice to remove disproven theories. However, theories shouldn't be removed just because they are old.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:48, 20 April 2009 (EDT)
    • Oh no, I would do anything of the sort! I'm just new and didn't know the protocol for disproved theories. Thanks for the help =) Snoopy 14:14, 20 April 2009 (EDT)

Error on Latest Heroes Episode Template on Main Page

In the Latest Episode Template on the Main Page, the bubble at the bottom of it that has "For a complete summary, see the full article, or watch the episode on Hulu." is linking to next episode instead of the current episode like it is supposed to. I tried to fix it, I looked at the edit page for the Template and the currentep Template but I did not see how to change the actual output of Template, so instead I thought I would just notify you guys because I'm sure you guys know how to fix it. I clicked the link earlier to go to the full article and bam there was a bunch of spoiler warnings and I then quickly hit the back button lol.(Craigyjack 19:44, 22 April 2009 (EDT))

  • Thanks for the heads up, Craigyjack! The edit had to be done on Episode:I Am Sylar. I took care of it. If there's anything else, let us know. Thanks! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:48, 22 April 2009 (EDT)

References to Films : The Crow

Is there anybody watched a film serie called "The Crow"? In crow people can heal like claire, suddenly disappear like sylar, and in one of scenes of crow 1 eric(the most important character) takes his friend's cigarette and says "you shouldn't smoke this,it will kill you" and when sylar comes danko's car (after taking shape-shifting) sylar did same thing and in second movie if crow appear sometimes we hear a voice and that voice is now using as space time manipulation sound, in crow 2 a character named sarah can draw future, see future and past in her dream.I can't write everything cause of i can't know english very well but you must watch this films.

Nathan clarification?

So, seeing as how he is technally dead, are we reverting the portal pictures of Nathan to deceased (faded)?--Anthony Gooch 01:18, 29 April 2009 (EDT)

Hi Admin, Im trying to create a autonav and I was wondering if their was a template for them since im really dont understand how to make one :s Gabriel Bishop 15:10, 5 May 2009 (EDT)

  • I'm not exactly familiar offhand with what you're referring to (though if anyone else is, please jump in). Is there a page here that has an autonav already that I can use as an example? (Admin 15:13, 5 May 2009 (EDT))
    • Hey, I think he means a user autonav, so either one like mine here, one with collapsing tables like the one Cockney Heroes uses here or one like the character ones on character pages. Hope I helped :) --IronyUTC CH 15:21, 5 May 2009 (EDT)

Nielsen gets sued

  • If you haven't already heard, you can read about it at this link.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:16, 6 May 2009 (EDT)
    • That's funny. I don't see a whole lot of merit in their claims. Everyone else seems happy except them just because they didn't like the results. (Admin 09:15, 6 May 2009 (EDT))
      • Well, besides the ad revenues Sunbeam lost, which in the millions are nothing to sneeze at, there is the matter of Nielsen deciding to institute set-box meters in the South Florida area without getting certification from the government's Media Rating Council. I think it will be interesting to see if anything comes of this or the current four-day delay in announcing any ratings, said to be caused by an unspecified server problem.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:44, 6 May 2009 (EDT)
        • The ad revenues explain why they got frustrated and decided to sue, but that alone sounded to me like them just whining. I was not aware of the set-box meters. I can see how that may add merit to their suit. (Admin 17:43, 6 May 2009 (EDT))

Tracy or Barbara

  • So do you think it was Tracy or Barbara in the season finale? I wanted an Admin's opinion. :) Heroes Wiki Fan, --Pslover 20:16, 8 May 2009 (EDT)

Admin suggestion


  • Can I suggest that user: Irony be recommended to become an administrater. He is very helpful, he will answer and assist any queries you put to him. He is a patroller at the moment (a very good one I may add) but I believe and I am sure others will as well that his work rate and attitude on Heroes Wiki merits an administrater place. This is just a suggestion, it will be your decision, I am just casting my vote.--Danko 16:46, 18 May 2009 (EDT)

Just a hunch, but there has been a stream of new users today, can you check their IP adresses, it looks slightly suspect, the users are: ValdoMzelr, CaladOmcoe, OksanaL, C4tcaLetoa, LipasElcac, TapasLidom, TroclIdelc, OloroMonde, C4ttrOrget and NoercNabas. Of course, I might be completely wrong, but the way the usernames are set up with a name, then a capitol letter half way through looks very similar.

    • If you have been hacked or are being hacked you need to get better firewall defences, also you need to be careful where you are logining in from. If you think that you being hacked will affect the wiki in any way I would think you should not log in until you are cetain that you are no longer being hacked. Also you should not have more than 1 account (I understand about Autobot and Autobot 2) but the others should not have been created. --posted by Laughingdevilboy

==New Book, Heroes and Philosophy==

Hey There,

My name's Tyler Shores, and I'm one of the contributing writers for Heroes and Philosophy, a new book that's coming out this August. I'm a big fan of Heroes Wiki and used it pretty frequently during my writing, and thought it might be a neat idea to get in touch with you. If you'd like, we could send you a free advanced copy of the book - and if you find it interesting, it would be great if you'd want to post some thoughts about the book for your readers. I asked our publisher to write up a more formal invitation, which I've enclosed below. Heroes and Philosophy was a lot of fun to work on; the show has a great deal of philosophical depth that I think fans will really enjoy exploring in the book.

If you have any questions at all, feel free to get in touch with either them or myself.

Thanks! Tyler


May 2009 Dear Fellow Heroes Fans,

When ordinary individuals from around the world inexplicably develop superhuman abilities, they question who they are, struggle to cope with new responsibilities, and decide whether to use their new powers for good or for evil. Such is the mythological universe of Tim Kring's hit TV show Heroes, a critical and popular success that has developed into interactive websites, magazines, action figures, games, clothing, and now, just in time for the new fall season, the first unauthorized book to explore the shows’ epic philosophies.

HEROES AND PHILOSOPHY: Buy the Book, Save the World (Wiley; August 2009; $17.95 / Paper; ISBN: 978-0-470-37338-5) draws on some of philosophy’s heavy hitters to examine questions crucial to our existence as thinking, rational beings. Is the Company evil or good? Does Hiro really have a destiny? Do we? Could mind reading be a power that we already have? Is time travel actually possible? If so, could we, like Hiro, use it to save the lives of those we love? What obligations do we have to family? Is it okay to lie in order to hide your powers and save the world? And shouldn’t the heroes of Heroes get paid for their services? This new book offers answers to these and other fascinating questions about one of the most watched TV shows on the air.

In the vein of other books in the successful series, HEROES AND PHILOSOPHY uses pop culture phenomena to creatively uncover our driving world views. This book is sure to fascinate fans, critics, students, and professors alike!

Series Editor: William Irwin (Wilkes-Barre, PA) is Professor of Philosophy at King's College. He originated the philosophy and popular culture genre of books as coeditor of the bestselling The Simpsons and Philosophy and has overseen recent titles including, Batman and Philosophy, House and Philosophy, and Watchmen and Philosophy.

Heroes and Philosophy Editor: David Kyle Johnson (Wilkes-Barre, PA) is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Kings College.

I hope you’ll consider HEROES AND PHILOSOPHY for a review or feature. If you have any questions, please contact me by telephone at (415) 782-3213 or by email at

A Few Questions..

If you have the time, I was wandering if I could ask a few questions...

1. I was trying to get on my account on Heroes Wiki on my phone, because I was on vacation and the e-mail notifications were saying someone had made a message on my talk page, but it said that I has to enable my cookies first....and I was wandering....A. What does that mean? and B. How would I accomplish this?

2. There are several books out. Saving Charlie is one. There are two Graphic Novel books. And then the Heroes Magazine mentioned a book called Heroes Revealed. Also, in the back of the second Graphic Novel book, it mentioned the third coming out in Fall 2009. I was wandering why these books don't have pages in Heroes Wiki? Under Portal:Promotions or something. Saving Charlie I think has a page but the others don't.

Please answer my questions when you have the time! Thanks!

Kyle Stevens 01:33, 16 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Heroes: Survival characters by themselves are entirely fan-made. So if it's such a fan-made character that hasn't appeared in Heroes-verse, then it needs to be in your userspace, as you did with the "Fredrick Swift" article. Thanks.--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:32, 16 August 2009 (EDT)

Hi Admin

Hi Admin. I had asked this question to RGS, and he told me I should ask you. So...I have recently created a wiki, and was wondering if I could copy some of the templates (pretty much just the character and ability templates). I would very much appreciate it if I could for it would be pretty helpful. But if not alright, that's ok and never mind.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 21:20, 8 September 2009 (EDT)

  • First, keep in mind that many of our templates are based on MediaWiki extensions that may or may not be available in your MediaWiki installation. In terms of being copied, templates are kind of a gray area in my opinion. I believe the advice I've given before is that people are relatively free to use the templates elsewhere as long as they're not used in such a way that it creates an intentional ambiguity as to whether the site some is at is Heroes Wiki or not. Also providing some sort of attribution somewhere saying that the templates originated from Heroes Wiki is a nice way to avoid any hard feelings (in the event that one or a couple people were principally involved in their creation), but is by no means required. I know Heroes Wiki originally adapted some templates from sites like Lostpedia which initially generated some negative feelings and while it was never my intention to generate any negative feelings, I also felt it was necessary to personally convey though my actions here that copying templates was not the same as say copying content. I hope this helps. :) (Admin 21:45, 8 September 2009 (EDT))


Hey Admin, is there a way to modify the recent changes page to hide both User and User:talk modifications ? Sure I can select the User namespace and do an invert selection, but I still will see the User:Talk pages in the results.

      • Actually, it looks like you get No Form Data but the password reset does actually complete. Did you try going back and logging in again with the new password? (Admin 16:49, 30 September 2009 (EDT))
        • I just tried that, but it only brought up the message "Login error: Incorrect password entered. Please try again." I also cleared my cache to see whether that helped, but it didn't. --HelpRedScharlach 18:09, 30 September 2009 (EDT)

Limit of Templates?

Hi there, how have you been? I've got some troubles in the german Heroeswiki with the List of character appearances by graphic novel. Some templates don't schow anymore, meaning after Graphic Novel number 140 the appearance template doesn't show right. No matter which template I put there. So is there some kind of limit of templates over there? Your List here despite the size, seems just fine. Or do you see any other reason for the wrong showing. Thx for your time. --Muffin84 10:56, 6 October 2009 (EDT)

  • There are template limits over there and over here. I noticed in the appearance templates, you are using the ep template to print the name. You can probably get some more to print out by substituting the ep template call with the actual name for the graphic novel. Alternatively, you can just split the page in two.--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:35, 6 October 2009 (EDT)

    • Any response? TanderixUTCR 11:59 (italy) March 7, 2010
      • Nothing? TanderixUTCR 10:14 (Italy) March 21, 2010
        • I think some people have been having trouble contacting Admin recently. Try emailing him. Other than that... I'm out of ideas. --mc_hammark 06:48, 21 March 2010 (EDT)
  • I'm not really setting up new administrators at this time. Is there something there that actually requires an administrator to handle? (Admin 20:53, 6 May 2010 (EDT))

Episode titles

Okay. So for some reason, you guys manage to list titles for upcoming episodes of Heroes months in advance to their being listed on NBC Universal Media Village (NBCUMV). In that respect alone, I think that this wiki's episode pages should be counted as credible sources for our List of Heroes episodes page on Wikipedia, however, one of our admins says that because your source for that information is unclear, we can't. Therefore, I was wonder if that information could be divulged. SnakeChess5 14:37, 9 November 2009 (EST)

I think that just might. Let me pass the message onto my fellow editors at WikiProject Heroes and I'll let you know if I have any success. Thank you. SnakeChess5 13:18, 10 November 2009 (EST)
Unfortunately they did not accept that. You see, to them it is merely a claim made by a Heroes Wiki admin. They need some more verifiable evidence that the episode titles listed on Heroes Wiki are 100% accurate. Some kind of confirmation in writing on a website that is accredited, because Heroes Wiki is still only viewed as a spoiler site and thus it is not accredited. If you were to help me further in this matter it would be most appreciated. You can view the discussion here. SnakeChess5 13:30, 11 November 2009 (EST)
Wikipedia has their own goals and policies and quite often information here isn't suitable for inclusion over there. I really think it's going to wind up where you just can't include it there yet until there's some announcement by NBCUMV. As you probably know being a Wikipedia contributor this has happened a number of times in the past already and there's probably not much you'll be able to do about it because of their policies over there. (Admin 13:37, 11 November 2009 (EST))
Alright, well thanks anyways. SnakeChess5 17:50, 11 November 2009 (EST)


I don't know how often you do it, but your talk page is pretty big already. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 13:39, 11 November 2009 (EST)

Admin Of Italian Heroes Wiki

Hello.I would like to request to become Admin of Italian Heroes Wiki. I and Tanderix are the only active users who translate articles, and I think I'm qualified enough to fill this position. I await response. Thanks for the time allotted. --Vinkmafia 14:35, 11 November 2009 (EST)

Hey Admin,

As you may or may not know, I myself have a fan fiction series. And I was just wondering if I could make a user account like you allowed Cockney Heroes to have. If yes, I would very much appreciate it. If not, I guess it's alright.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 16:31, 11 November 2009 (EST)

Malay wiki

I would like to translate all articles on this wiki to the Malay language. It's at Heroes Wiki talk:Languages#Malay_wiki. Sdbryan 05:30, 15 November 2009 (EST)

Namespace on German Heroeswiki

Hi there... I'm trying to include the buttons on new pages on the german wiki. Over here I was asking why it isn't working for all the pages. Ryan told me about the namespaces which aren't working. Could you change this for all the needed namespaces. Thanks for your help. --Muffin84 03:52, 10 December 2009 (EST)

  • Yeah I need my account to be deleted now. Please and thank you!--Computerdude0012


I'm a big fan of Heroes and of comic book art. I really enjoyed seeing the behind the scenes art of Cesar Lemus, showcased on your Slow Burn storyboards. Can you post some storyboards from Season 4? Would love to see some current stuff from the Carnival Clan. BR, Bob --Heroesfan2006

  • Hi, Bob. Glad you enjoyed the storyboards! I've been in contact with Cesar Lemus, and he was gracious enough to share his storyboards with us. (A few others come from screen captures and from former director Greg Beeman.) Often, Cesar doesn't feel comfortable sharing the storyboards until after the season is over, which is the main reason why there is very little from Season Four. However, I'll ask him again, now that the season is over. In the meantime, check out the storyboards for the Slow Burn webisodes, a few of the carnival banners, and the designs for Lydia's tattoos. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:11, 11 February 2010 (EST)

RedHat Certified Architect

I just saw that you became a RedHat Certified Architect. Sweet. Congratulations! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:52, 11 February 2010 (EST)

  • Thanks. :) Im pretty pleased. I found out that as of last week there were only 228 in the whole world...and I know a lot of them actually work for Red Hat itself. (Admin 17:49, 11 February 2010 (EST))

Hero Saving Facebook Group

Based on NBCs recent publicity stunt of having Betty White host SNL based on the size of a FB group, request your help, and the help of your website to garner support for a FB group I recently created entitled "Save NBCs Heroes!

Heroes wiki in spanish

Hi, administrator. I have seen that there is no active user working in the wiki (Heroes Wiki in Spanish), which is why I ask if I can appoint an administrator here, as I am interested in collaborating and functions need administrator rights to perform various tasks to improve Heroes Wiki in Spanish. First I want to translate MediaWiki spaces which are in English, I have experience in the wiki code, I'm working on Wikipedia for quite a long time. --Def35 13:27, 11 October 2010 (EDT)

Need alteration to robots.txt for page mentioning me


i was one of the VFX artists on an early episode of Heroes. I noticed on the heroes wiki, an photograph of me that was only briefly a Facebook photo that made it onto this site. I hadn't intended that photo to be public (it curiously never was), So I removed it from the wiki page that mentions me.

However it still shows up in Google searches, and I'd appreciate it if you might edit your robots.txt file for that page to remove the image from Google's (and other search engines') indices and caches. 

You can find the google instructions here:

many thanks

Admin rights and namespaces on French wiki.

Hi Admin,
I know it has been a long time since I made edits on the French wiki (I was busy elsewhere, notably on the French and English Stargate wikis), but is it possible please to grant me admin rights on the French wiki as I can change the main page for example to fit the English one and to make a better look on the wiki? And is it possible to add all Extensions like the English one (especially DynamicPageList)? Thank you very much for your answer. --LIMAFOX76 06:24, 4 June 2013 (EDT)

I forgot one last thing: Is it possible to create extra namespaces like the English wiki?
  • Épisode (Episode)
  • Bande dessinée (Graphic Novel)
  • Interview (Interview)
  • Webisode (Webisode)
  • iStory (iStory)
  • Portail (Portal), to be excluded from statistics
  • Spoiler (Spoiler)
Fan Creation is unnecessary for now.
Thanks again. --LIMAFOX76 08:19, 4 June 2013 (EDT)
Hi Admin,
I suppose you are quite busy these times, but did you of will you please have time to enable the different features regarding the French Heroes Wiki. As you can probably see, I've made some improvements on the look and feeling, and completed different main articles regarding the characters, notably. One more question: Do I have to enable again advertising as you did here? Thank you for your answers. --LIMAFOX76 02:44, 24 October 2013 (EDT)
Hi Admin,
Just checking if you have time to enable those features and creating Namespaces on French Heroes Wiki please. Thank you for your answer. --LIMAFOX76 12:19, 25 February 2014 (EST)
There are some issues with the translation, especially vith the caps and accents in French. For help, I just give you the syntax for the French accents to put inside the LocalSettings.php:
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_EPISODE] = "Épisode";
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_EPISODE_TALK] = "Discussion_épisode";   # underscore required
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_PORTAIL] = "Portail";
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_PORTAIL_TALK] = "Discussion_portail";   # underscore required
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_WEBISODE] = "Webisode";
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_WEBISODE_TALK] = "Discussion_webisode";   # underscore required
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_GRAPHIC_NOVEL] = "Bande_dessinée";   # underscore required
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_GRAPHIC_NOVEL_TALK] = "Discussion_bande_dessinée";   # underscore required
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_INTERVIEW] = "Interview";
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_INTERVIEW_TALK] = "Discussion_interview";   # underscore required
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_SPOILER] = "Spoiler";
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_SPOILER_TALK] = "Discussion_spoiler";   # underscore required
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_ISTORY] = "iStory";
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_ISTORY_TALK] = "Discussion_iStory";   # underscore required

Thank you very much. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 07:30, 31 March 2014 (EDT)

Ok, I believe I fixed this now. Main issues seemed to be with the talk pages which apparently I originally just took the French name and appeneded _talk to them. I've renamed them as you've suggested above. I did not add Portal/Portail as it's not an actual namespace. (Admin (talk) 14:12, 31 March 2014 (EDT))
Yes it's working. If you want to be "perfect", you can lowercase the "D" of the main Graphic Novel namespace: "Bande_dessinée" ;-). In French, we don't put caps after a name in titles.
Regarding the "Theory" and "Fan Creation" namespaces, I think there're not essential in the French wiki; the main work is to update and fill the canon and neo-canon articles (and there's already a lot to do). Theory and Fan Creation are secondary objective. If you want to keep them as namespaces, please find the code to put in LocalSettings.php to fit the French language below:
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_THEORY] = "Théorie";
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_THEORY_TALK] = "Discussion_théorie";   # underscore required
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_FAN_CREATION] = "Création_de_fan";   # underscore required
$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_FAN_CREATION_TALK] = "Discussion_création_de_fan";   # underscore required
Thank you again for your time. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 15:46, 31 March 2014 (EDT)
Changes made. I'd like to leave in the Theory and Fan Creation namespaces just for completeness even if they never get used. Thanks for the translations. On the EN wiki we usually capitalize both letters just as a standard for namespace names, however I don't really see a reason that standard need apply to the FR wiki as well. I've changed the D to lowercase as you recommended. (Admin (talk) 16:35, 31 March 2014 (EDT))
Great, that's fine, thank you again. Cheers --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 16:42, 31 March 2014 (EDT)

Enabling subpages on Heroes Wiki FR.

Hi Admin,
Is it possible please to enable subpages for article pages on Heroes Wiki FR like the following?

$wgNamespacesWithSubpages[NS_MAIN] = true;
$wgNamespacesWithSubpages[NS_TEMPLATE] = true;

Thank you very much. --LIMAFOX76 07:01, 10 July 2013 (EDT)

Left bars bug

As I mentioned in Talk:Main Page#Left bars, I'm having a bug with the left bars. In Chrome, regardless of being logged in or not, the bars at the left side of the screen have been pushed down all the way bast what would be the bottom of the screen, as seen you can see here. This doesn't happen with Firefox or Internet Explorer, all three browsers in their latest stable versions. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 10:11, 25 February 2014 (EST)

  • I don't have that problem in the desktop/laptop version of Chrome. I do have that problem on the iOS version of Chrome on my phone, but not on my iPad. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:17, 25 February 2014 (EST)

Upgrading FR Heroes Wiki

Hi Admin,
I see you have upgraded the main Heroes Wiki to MediaWiki 1.22.4. I would like to know if you plan to upgrade the French wiki as well + the specifications I asked you a few headlines upper. Thank you for your answer. Cheers. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 13:23, 29 March 2014 (EDT)

  • I just added the subpages that you requested above. I do plan to upgrade all the wikis that are still being contributed to in the near future once I work out any issues with the main site. (Admin (talk) 13:27, 29 March 2014 (EDT))
  • I also added the extra namespaces you requested. I didn't include Portal as that's not an actual namespace here but rather a fake namespace. (Admin (talk) 13:44, 29 March 2014 (EDT))
    • Thank you very much for the namespaces. For the Portail namespace, it's more to differenciate it from the project namespace. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 13:49, 29 March 2014 (EDT)
      • For that namespace you can just make an article named "Portail:Something" for example. That's what we did for Portal. (Admin (talk) 13:59, 29 March 2014 (EDT))

Upgrading of the French wiki.

Hi Admin,
I see you have upgraded the French wiki and I would like to thank you for that. Yet I think there is a small bug regarding the top advertising (see the snapshot below): French wiki - Genesis snapshot.jpg
I think it's just a missing closing </div> or something, yet the visual is quite different than the English wiki. I'm pretty sure you have the solution for this issue. Thank you very much. Cheers --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 06:24, 31 March 2014 (EDT)

  • Thanks for the heads up. The ads sometimes don't display at all for me so I didn't notice it when I was testing things out over there. I've adjusted the CSS to reposition it. If it's not already fixed for you over there then try to forcibly refresh the page. (Admin (talk) 09:15, 31 March 2014 (EDT))
    • Thank you, it's good now. Did you see the namespace issue above? --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 09:58, 31 March 2014 (EDT)


Hooray. And thank you. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:11, 31 March 2014 (EDT)

Advertising on French Wiki

Hi Admin,
Do I need to put back the advertising on the French wiki's Main Page? Thank you for your answer. Cheers! --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 15:45, 1 April 2014 (EDT)

  • Not at the moment, and possibly not at all. I think it's the EN site they're mainly interested in advertising on. (Admin (talk) 15:48, 1 April 2014 (EDT))
    • Understood. Just waiting your word. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 17:02, 1 April 2014 (EDT)

Statistics issues since the upgrade (and Interwiki)

Hi Admin,
It seems that the statistics, especially the the pages' number of visits don't work anymore since the MediaWiki upgrade (may be the server move, I don't know). Is it possible to fix it please? Thank you. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 08:16, 8 April 2014 (EDT)

  • Are you referring specifically to the FR site? I think we disabled statistics here a long time ago. If you're referring to the FR site it may have been some of the settings I applied over there during the update. (Admin (talk) 10:32, 8 April 2014 (EDT))
    • Indeed, I'm referring to the FR site. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 10:47, 8 April 2014 (EDT)
      • Ok, I reset the counter rate back to default for the FR site. (Admin (talk) 11:38, 8 April 2014 (EDT))
        • Thank you, it's working again now. Just another question: which wikis do you intend to shut down, as it seems I can only add interwiki links for English, German and Portuguese (sic! it's in English) wikis? Also, I didn't register at the time on the German wiki, so I can't update interwiki links since you have locked the registring. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 12:41, 8 April 2014 (EDT)

Double dash

With the new update, the "double dash" (--) is showing up as a double dash, not as an em dash. Is that something you can fix? Thanks! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:23, 20 April 2014 (EDT)

Hi, use instead, that's a "bug" since MediaWiki 1.15. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 04:48, 21 April 2014 (EDT)
When I get a moment I'll go through the new code and try to fix it again. (Admin (talk) 15:27, 21 April 2014 (EDT))
Thanks, Admin. No rush. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:32, 22 April 2014 (EDT)

Acces to German wiki

Hi Admin,
Is it possible please to have/create a userID on the German wiki? I didn't declare myself on it previously and as you've blocked all wikis to prevent spam, I cannot modify/add interwiki links on German articles. Thank you very much. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 05:51, 12 June 2014 (EDT)

Dynamic Page List on the main Heroes Wiki

Hi Admin,
It seems that DPL is lacking on the main Heroes wiki website. Is it on purpose, and do you intend to put it back on work, as many pages and templates are built on it? Thank you very much. Cheers and Best Regards. --LIMAFOX76 (talk) 04:53, 28 August 2014 (EDT)

  • It was causing some serious issues with the current version of MediaWiki so I had to disable it. If I can get it working at some point I'll reenable it. (Admin (talk) 23:19, 31 August 2014 (EDT))
