Cross editing

Were we editing Women in Refrigerators at the same time? Sorry 'bout that! (Great minds think alike, eh?) - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:37, 12 January 2007 (EST)

It's alright, yours was better anyway. Doesn't it normally have a warning though, it didn't this time. -Level 15:44, 12 January 2007 (EST)
Not necessarily. If one is just editing just a section (eg, you pressed "edit" on the subheading "Heroes in Refrigerators"), then there's no warning, so long as I don't change that section too. Since you added a section and I added a section, there's technically no conflict in our edits. ... At least we were duplicating and not conflicting, right? :) - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:54, 12 January 2007 (EST)

L337 and uncommon versions

Hey, its me, WolvenSpectre and thanks for the message.

You pointed something out to me I never noticed. Using that uncommon hardcore version of leetspeak, L337 becomes a leetspeak palindrome ( spelled the same backwards and forwards).
I also understand that it is a bit of a reach and may be a coincidence with another couple of theories I have bouncing around in the old melon. The only reason that I know about this is I had to interact with four different communities when I first started going online. Each had its own dialect of leet, partially because of the way language and slang evolves in any community making their own version unique, plus the amount of censorship and monitoring that took place.For example
One group was on services based around a Canadian University Internet Service, which was supposed to be open to all ages, so language and topics considered inappropriate or legally risky (hacking, lock-picking, copy protection circumvention for fair use, etc.) were filtered. The problem was they used learning software, that could censor attempts at getting around the filter. To beat that their leet got so leet they eventually made a 30 page dictionary file for newbs just getting in like me, because most people couldn't read it at all. With my minor learning disorder it was all I could do to keep from looking like one of Sylar's Victims.
Group 2 was mostly made up of programmers that ran their own IRC Service. Very little censorship and leet was used the same way programming jargon was, less a necessity and more a fun choice.
If you type it like "LE37", it almost has rotational symmetry -LEи37 15:57, 26 January 2007 (EST)

Proper usage for the term E-Mail

Sorry about that, the changes sent to me by the Wiki Software said it was Darc and I had never seen his name before.

Trust me on this, I am a certified professional trained in Computer Systems Support (End User Support, Network Administration, Hardware Installation and Troubleshooting, Office Data Entry, etc). For our courses we had to use the "Officially Recognized Proper Syntax". Wikipedia has this one wrong. It was Electronic-Mail, originally abbreviated E.M., but quickly changed as that was a common electronical term already. They then brought back the full word "Mail" and the dash. It is meant to be used as a proper noun and both Words are capitalized. When it grew in popularity and also became a verb, it is then that it is not capitalized.

I can feel my friendly instructor's hand jokingly smacking me in the back of the head for leaving out the dash. So ironically I am correcting myself. However you are very right in that what is officially correct and what is publicly accepted are two different things.

Ironically this wasn't the reason I changed it though. If you look, all other Theory subsections are fully capitalized (ie Hiro's Sword, Sylar's Victims) and I thought ascetically "email" should be capitalized.

Whats say I capitalize the E and not be snooty about the rest by keeping it in the "common man" format and we both go away happy?

--WolvenSpectre 01:36, 27 January 2007 (EST)

If you're talking about renaming the article this would be better discussed on the talk page for The email. However "email", while perhaps more colloquial, is an acceptable form of spelling it now. (Admin 10:00, 27 January 2007 (EST))

Run!

Episode:Run! was not broadcast in Utah because of a mall shooting in Salt Lake City. -Level 03:55, 13 February 2007 (EST)

Road Signs

Hey, Level... I uploaded another road sign image with you in mind. Thought you might enjoy! :) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:30, 26 February 2007 (EST)

  • Thanks, when I first saw the sign, I looked up information about it, but I didn't have time to upload, so I forgot about it. By the way how do I do left align inline thumbnails? -Level 16:25, 26 February 2007 (EST)
    • I'm not sure I understand exactly what you're asking; if you're asking how to make thumbs on the left, just type [[Image:extension|thumb|left|optional caption]] and that will make your thumb left-aligned. Is that what you're looking for? — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:10, 27 February 2007 (EST)
      • Yes, but without the text wrapping. -Level 11:34, 27 February 2007 (EST)

Dutch Heroes Wiki

  • It looks like you created an account on the Dutch Heroes Wiki. Do you speak Dutch? (Admin 16:42, 18 April 2007 (EDT))
    • Nope, I also have an account on all the other languages as well, I just wanted to be able to add language links. -Lөvөl 17:45, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

happy birthday

in the last 60 seconds. woo!--Piemanmoo 03:01, 1 May 2007 (EDT)

  • Thank you, by my clock you were an hour late. Actually I was born later in the day so it is alright, and you said it before anyone in my family. -Lөvөl 12:54, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

Jawbone

...as in the Book of Mormon prophet? — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:49, 5 May 2007 (EDT)

  • I figured you would figure it out, you can also find it in the numbers. People do like to tease me about my dreams, I have lots of weird ones, but most of them are not Prophetic. -Lөvөl 12:54, 7 May 2007 (EDT)

Credits

Are we going to create each crew's page ? Coz if not, we probably should remove the red links, I hate seeing content in the Special:Wantedpages :p . -- FrenchFlo (talk)        10:01, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

  • Thats what its there for. I don't have much time to find all the information, so if I made them now they would be very stuby. The main reason I got this was because Mark Kolpac, a visual effects supervisor (thats what I'm in to), was mention in an interview, I wanted to make a page but couldn't find any information, after figuring out the corect spelling of his name (Mark Kolpack), I found NBC's credits page. -Lөvөl 11:13, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
    • There's nothing wrong with having some red links, and there's nothing wrong with having articles for the crew. Some wikis have pages for their stunt coordinators, for their visual effects guys, and Lostpedia even has pages for all their foreign language voice actors. I'm not suggesting we jump straight to that extreme yet (although I am not opposed to it), but there's nothing wrong with having aricles for lots of crew members. When we get enough in a group we can always split them out of the miscellaneous crew group and make their own group. (As it is, we're just about ready to start a portal for the art department.) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:11, 9 May 2007 (EDT)

Time in New Orleans

When/where'd you live in New Orleans?--Bob 16:37, 12 May 2007 (EDT)

  • I was there in 2003-2004, February through September in Terrytown, October through April in the Carrollton area, and May through July in Metairie. I have a few friends from all over New Orleans, but I haven’t been able to get in contact with some of them since Katrina. I miss it down there and want to go back to visit some time, but haven’t been able to yet. -Lөvөl 02:13, 14 May 2007 (EDT)
    • Oh cool. I lived in Old Jefferson most of my life, then I was at Tulane from Aug. 03-May 05 (transfered because of Katrina).

GN templates

Hey, Level. Good job on the GN templates. You mentioned in the usage that they were for the template:crewnav--do you plan to put them into the episode crew templates, or did you just mean to put template:gncrew instead? — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:31, 16 May 2007 (EDT)

  • Actually both, I am working on template:crewnav right now, I just forgot to add template:gncrew when I copied it. -Lөvөl 14:35, 16 May 2007 (EDT)
    • I'm not sure you need the gnbar in the middle of the crewnav bar--it looks a little odd. Plus, if it says row heading says "Graphic Novel Writers", then it seems a bit redundant, you know? One other issue: You've got an extra bullet after Graphic Novel Colorists in the See Also section. I don't have a code-ified way to get rid of this, but there's an easy solution: since there are no GN colorists who work on the episodes, you can just take off the bullet, and we won't have to worry about it ... until Annette Kwok starts directing in Season Two. :) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:37, 16 May 2007 (EDT)
      • Is that better? If someone can think of a way to not need the gncrew variable it would be nice. -Lөvөl 15:54, 16 May 2007 (EDT)
        • You can nest ifeq: statements and have it test gnwriter, gnart, and gncolor sequentially. Since the statements are nested, it would stop after it matches any of the three, and only produce the bar reflexes once.--Hardvice (talk) 16:15, 16 May 2007 (EDT)
          • I think this ought to do it:

{{#if: {{{gnart|}}} | {{#if: {{{gncolor|}}} | {{#if: {{{gnwriter|}}} | | [[Portal:Graphic Novel Writers|Graphic Novel Writers]]}} | {{#if: {{{gnwriter|}}} | [[Portal:Graphic Novel Colorists|Graphic Novel Colorists]] | [[Portal:Graphic Novel Colorists|Graphic Novel Colorists]] • [[Portal:Graphic Novel Writers|Graphic Novel Writers]]}}}} | {{#if: {{{gncolor|}}} | {{#if: {{{gnwriter|}}} | [[Portal:Graphic Novel Artists|Graphic Novel Artists]] | [[Portal:Graphic Novel Artists|Graphic Novel Artists]] • [[Portal:Graphic Novel Writers|Graphic Novel Writers]]}} | {{#if: {{{gnwriter|}}} | [[Portal:Graphic Novel Artists|Graphic Novel Artists]] • [[Portal:Graphic Novel Colorists|Graphic Novel Colorists]] | [[:Portal:Graphic Novel Crew|Graphic Novel Crew]]}}}}}}

  1. If a person is a GN artist, writer, and colorist, it print nothing.
  2. If a person is not a GN crew member, it links to Portal:GN Crew
  3. If a person is a GN artist, writer, and/or colorist (but not all three), it links to the portal(s) of which they aren't a member.--Hardvice (talk) 16:53, 16 May 2007 (EDT)

Thank you

Thanks for the welcome! It's appreciated! -Ahoehler 15:54, 30 May 2007 (EDT)

newgnchecklist

Sorry we were editing the template at the same time. Did the subst: work? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:14, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

  • I didn't respond earlier because I had to go on a doughnut run for work.:) The Pagenamenopseudo did not work the way I thought it would, the (disambig) kind of worked, I can see if there is a better way. -Lөvөl 12:51, 5 June 2007 (EDT)
  • I reverted the edits since it was including a disambig link on all GNs, not just those with "Part" in their titles. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:45, 5 June 2007 (EDT)
    • I'll see if there is a way to get it to work right. -Lөvөl 12:51, 5 June 2007 (EDT)
      • Right, I'm sure there is, I just don't know how to do it. In the end, a little bit of code doesn't really hurt the page all that much. Afterall, there's a bunch of code on other places in the page, so it's not really that big a deal. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:54, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

Gender and Spoilers

Duh... that was a smart idea. Thanks! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:22, 20 June 2007 (EDT)

  • I think its kind of funny. I didn't notice until most of them were done, then you had to undo all of them. Are there any other cats that need to be removed from spoilers? -Lөvөl 14:28, 20 June 2007 (EDT)
    • Other categories on the box are
Thanks for fixing that up! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:40, 20 June 2007 (EDT)

MMM

I snagged an immmage for you.--Hardvice (talk) 00:16, 4 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Thanks, now we need one with Mohinder looking at Matt while he is sleeping, like you mentioned earlier;). -Lөvөl 01:31, 4 October 2007 (EDT)
    • Done. (Good luck typing that out a few times).--Hardvice (talk) 15:57, 4 October 2007 (EDT)
      • That title is just too funny.:) -Lөvөl 02:06, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
        • I'm a ridiculously huge Magnetic Fields fan. I don't get to use their lyrics for image titles as often as Ryan gets to use DMB lyrics, but I couldn't pass this one up.--Hardvice (talk) 03:45, 5 October 2007 (EDT)

Characternav

  • I went ahead and updated characternav with your version. Sorry to jump the gun on you, but people were editing the old one for season two, and I didn't want people to waste a lot of time re-inventing the wheel while you had something so kick-ass ready to go. I did switch from separate variables for seasons to one, with a #switch, to make future updates easier and to allow for a default value of season=one.--Hardvice (talk) 21:28, 4 October 2007 (EDT)
    • Cool, it was done as much as I could do. The switches work great, much better than the way I rigged up. I also like the edit links on the templates. I have one for the cast, if it would be useful. -Lөvөl 02:06, 5 October 2007 (EDT)

Thanks...

...for keeping my subpage updated. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:47, 17 October 2007 (EDT)
