Thanks

Thanks for the reword on the Peter's scar theory. I appreciate it!! :) Disney42 12:17, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

Template:Infobox cast

The colors you chose for the cast infobox are fine. You switched the spoiler color, too, though, so Ellen Greene, for instance, was showing up as a regular cast member. I tried to switch it, but changed the wrong spoiler section and didn't have time to fix it before I had to go out.... I just wanted to give a quick explanation. Thanks for fixing it up. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:12, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

  • I was wondering, is there some sort of list of all the codes for the colors, for future reference? Heroe!(talk) (contribs) Random Page! 23:54, 6 May 2007 (EDT)
    • To be honest, I'm hesitant to publicize a web address of HTML color codes because I don't want the colors to be changed willy nilly. But if you want it for future reference, that's cool. There are tons of sites that list color codes. Personally I prefer this one. The list doesn't seem to be in any particular order, but I like the selection of colors they have. Another one I use sometimes is this one--it's a very organized list, but I find it more confusing because it's difficult for me to tell the difference among the colors when two neighbors are so similar. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:02, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

Portal: Non-fictional places

  • What's the problem with the way Port Washington Harbor is displaying on your screen? In any case, we can't just cram "Port" and "Washington" into one big camel-cased word--that's not its name. If it's splitting onto three lines, try "Port&nbsp;Washington". If it's too wide for the cell, try "<small>Port Washington Harbor</small>".--Hardvice (talk) 17:33, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Oops. I was actully just trying to fix a cell slightly shorter then all the other ones, but I must have accidentally edited more than one :/ Heroe!(talk) (contribs) Random Page! 20:28, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

Edit conflicts

Hey, Heroe. When I was updating Portal:Minor Characters--especially when I was working on template:PortalCharNav--I kept getting a lot of edit conflicts because you were updating it at the same time as I was. Updating those portals is a bit of a high-wire act for me, and having edit conflicts can be kind of frustrating. I appreciate your help in updating them, of course, and I know you always have good intentions. However, if you see me working on them, I'd appreciate it if you just waited a little bit to edit them. Thanks for understanding. :) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:10, 17 May 2007 (EDT)

Who's the bomb?

What? There's not an option on the google fight for a combined explosion?--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:58, 18 May 2007 (EDT)

Hirowned

Hey, where'd you find that picture? — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:05, 19 May 2007 (EDT)

Image Cats

Hey, thanks for helping tag a bunch of these images. Think you can start from the beginning? I've moved backwards to Run! Also, I don't think pictures of people's hands constitutes an image of them. I can't really identify Nathan's hand versus Peter's hand unless I've seen the episode, so it's not worth the category tag. Again, thanks for the help.--Bob 13:57, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

  • No problem. I could have easily left it all to you, but my sense of better judgement got to me first :) Heroe!(talk) (contribs) 23:20, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

Nicknames

"Mommy?" — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:40, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

  • Probably because of the comment about some students accidentally calling you "mommy." My nickname is obviously because I'm in fact made of cheese. How Heroe found out about this I haven't the foggiest. (Admin 23:44, 30 May 2007 (EDT))
    • And here I thought it was just another way to say "The Big Cahuna". ;-)--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:50, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

Reference Bar

Hey, you're welcome...I didn't even see that you had that on your to do list. What a koinky dink! RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:28, 31 May 2007 (EDT)

Todo

I think I beat you to the converting of Candace->Candice in the main article pages. If you still want help with the image idea you had, you can PM me the idea on IMDb and I'll try my best.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:59, 2 June 2007 (EDT)

signature

You've got the first few steps down with your sig and autosig. Now, go into your preferences and put {{subst:User:Heroe/autosig}}. Make sure the "Raw signatures" box is checked. Then, just type your four tildes (~~~~) and your date should appear. Three tildes is just your name. Five tildes is just the date. Four is both your name and the date. Let me know if you have any more trouble with it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:39, 3 June 2007 (EDT)

  • Thanks. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 23:41, 3 June 2007 (EDT)
    • Great, looks like you got it. Just beware that when using an autosig page, you're a bit more prone to vandalism. For instance, some wiseacre could vandalize your page, which would change all instances of you using your autosig. It's not that big a deal since it's easily reversed, but it does leave you a little more vulnerable than if you subst: the sig and leave the code on the page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:42, 3 June 2007 (EDT)
      • Why did he do that? --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 10:32, 4 June 2007 (EDT)
        • Haven't we a function to lock page ? I think we aren't going to change our signatures every days so we could lock the page and unlock when needed by asking an admin. -- Frenchflo.gif (talk) 10:39, 4 June 2007 (EDT)
          • I'm sure Bob was just joking around, which is fine with me. :) I can protect a page for you, but then only an admin can edit or unlock it. If that's what you'd like me to do, that's fine. It seems like more trouble than it's worth, if you ask me. But it's your sig page, so I guess you can do whatever you want. (Kinda like a person can put underscores on their own talk page or signature if they want, right? ☺ ) Just let me know if you want me to protect your sig pages for you. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:07, 4 June 2007 (EDT)

Source

I know it's been awhile, but do you know the source where you got Image:BTS Greg.JPG? Could you add it if you do? Thanks! Never mind, I found it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:35, 4 June 2007 (EDT)

MQ

The reason I didn't include the heading in template:MQ is because it would throw off the edit buttons. We have the same problem with template:theories and template:spoiler, which is why they're required to be at the very end of the page, so it doesn't hurt any edit buttons. It's also the reason why we have to subst: template:welcome, and why there's all that odd code around the character appearances on the episode pages. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:21, 4 June 2007 (EDT)

  • I hate it when I don't know what I'm doing. :P --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 23:28, 4 June 2007 (EDT)
    • No, it's not that you don't know what you're doing--we did the same thing for the longest time. All the examples I gave above caused a big problem and it took us a while to figure out. Each has their unique solution, including heading placement, subst:, and span/div codes. I figured the easiest solution for MQ was simply to not include any headings in the code. It's a pretty simple template, it shouldn't be that big of a deal. But don't think that you don't know what you're doing. For the longest time, we all thought using headings in a template was a good idea, too. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:35, 4 June 2007 (EDT)

Screencaps

Looks like you've got 3 requests filled on the screencaps request page. When you get a minute, make sure you remove old requests and use any images as needed. Anything that you don't need should be marked with {{afd}}. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:28, 7 June 2007 (EDT)

Autolinking

Template:character box will link to an actor automatically, if the page exists. There is no need to add brackets around the name. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:19, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

Stubs

Heroe, I saw you've tried to take the stub off Sheku Fofana more than once ([1] and [2]). Check out the discussion. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:48, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

  • I argue if the cast or crew member deosn't have any information, then it shouldn't be a stub. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 22:50, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

T-shirt

  • Hey, Heroe. If you would like one of those free Heroes Wiki t-shirts, just email your shirt size, name, and shipping address to admin@heroeswiki.com and I'll mail one out to you for free. Size chart is here. (Admin 22:12, 21 June 2007 (EDT))
    • Can it be shipped under one of my parent's names? --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 22:14, 21 June 2007 (EDT)
      • It can be shipped wherever and to whomever you want. Just email me with the details. (Admin 22:24, 21 June 2007 (EDT))

Mr. Bennet → Noah

Good call on changing Related Articles:Noah. I hope you're not planning to change Category:Images of Mr. Bennet, though. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:16, 24 June 2007 (EDT)

  • Yeah, that's why I tried to warn you not to do it ... Category redirects don't put images (or articles) in the new category. The redirect is a good idea. Changing 126 image names just to update a perfectly fine name is not a good idea. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:32, 24 June 2007 (EDT)

See Also and Disambigs

If an ambiguous name does not already direct to a specific article, there's no reason to put a See Also on that page. For instance, Louis redirects to Louis (disambig), not to Louis Iacoviello, so there's no reason to put a See Also on his page. On the other hand, Tom already redirects to Tom McHenry, so it's a good idea to put a See Also at the bottom of his page to Thomas (disambig) (or to Tom (disambig), which redirects appropriately). I know it's confusing, but I hope that clears it up a bit. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:36, 24 June 2007 (EDT)

removed the red links from the screen caps screen

Wait....they were red-linked on purpose. Really. With the disdain for red-links, I had hoped by using them, it would help remind whoever posted those requests, to update the page, and clear them out with the actual 'desired location'....otherwise, I am afraid it will just sit there blank... At this point, if I spent the time to find those sources, since there is no link to where they are to go, why even spend the time researching to find them? I suppose I could go back through the history tab, and determine who originally posted those entries, and then send them a message asking them to update them. Maybe that is a better solution. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 06/25/2007 14:50 (EST)

Removal of 2 new evolved humans

OK. I just saw where you reverted my addition to the Evolved Humans list. The source material didn't come from the questionably AE wiki, which anyone can update, but from the new Mailbag page, which isn't editable. I tried to find the canon list and its heirarchy, but couldn't find it. From what I remember of it, Episodes are Canon. The next tier is GNs and then 360 sources. Was there ever a decision made on the Evolved Humans list to only be primary canon sourced? If so, then we should remove 40% of the names from it, because alot of the people sited on it are not primary canon, but came from secondary sources like the Map, the GNs, the Journal, and the new Mailbag. I thought the intent of the list was to document in one central location, all of the likely evolved humans that are involved in the show.

Should the evolved list be busted out into confirmed and suspected, and move all of the non-primary canon citations down to the lower 'suspected evolved humans list' and change it so it isn't specific to the Journal? The two newly mentioned evolved people from Mohinders Ae Mailbag should be documented and listed on the evolved humans page. Perhaps it should be split between confirmed(primary canon) and supsect(secondary canon) but we should have one page that lists them all together. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 06/26/2007 16:10 (EST)

  • I don't think Heroes 360 is any level of canon. That's why I removed it. But feel free to discuss this on Talk:List of evolved humans. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 16:14, 26 June 2007 (EDT)
    • Update: I just found and went to the Canon page. GNs and Heroes 360 are listed at the same tier as being 'Near Canon' which places the entry of the two new AE Mailbag people as on the same level of canonicity as Hana (used to be most of the season), David, Austin (originally), Au Co, the Walls agents, Becky, and any others that aren't coming to mind. Nothing on the Evolved Humans page tells direction as to which level of Canonicity must be conformed to for inclusion. We should clarify this in a way, so that page can remain a 'list-all' source of documentation for all confirmed and suspect evolved humans. No other Heroes resource tool has as a complete list as we have in that one page. We shouldn't exclude from it, but work it out so we can include any that the Heroes-Engine sends our way. IMO. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 06/26/2007 16:20 (EST)
      • Our general practice with Heroes 360-only information is to confine it to a separate section labeled "Heroes 360" (as on Isaac's paintings, Prophecy, The Map (until the interactive map was split off) or several other pages.) That's probably the best way to go. (Incidentally, information from the journal is canon since the journal pages appeared in an episode.)--Hardvice (talk) 16:30, 26 June 2007 (EDT)
        • Thanks. Sounds consistent to me. My only concern is omission, verses deletion. I think it is important for the E.H. List to be a resource of documentation of all the evolved humans that are mentioned in the Heroes World. I'll add a similar section to the List like you suggest from the above example pages. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 06/26/2007 16:33 (EST)
          • Actually, after a review of the mailbag page, I'm pretty sure it's just the best of the fan-submitted emails. I'd be disinclined to call that "near-canon" information any more than I'd call the tips on Hana's blog "near-canon".--Hardvice (talk) 16:36, 26 June 2007 (EDT)

Tone

Hey, Heroe. Just a reminder to watch your tone in your edit summaries. I know you mean well, but "don't you learn?" is quite rude. Not everybody reads (or even knows about) the recent changes page or how to check previous edits. Thanks, man. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:08, 6 July 2007 (EDT)
