Mr. Muggles

I just went back and rechecked. Sorry, I thought Lyle was holding him in that scene, as well, but he's not. Oops. -- Lulu .:talk:. 00:34, 1 December 2007 (EST)

  • No worries. When I was doing the appearances, I thought the same thing. He must've been off winning medals and awards. Or in mourning somewhere. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:44, 1 December 2007 (EST)
    • As yes, give people more ideas to add to his Theroy page. :] -- Lulu .:talk:. 00:51, 1 December 2007 (EST)

Primatechpaper.com

I am having troube with primatechpaper.com and I was wondering if you could help me to get on the site. I go to the jobs pag...' (and the only contributor was 'Nick Petrelli')

  • Sorry, Nick. I'm not very familiar with primatechpaper.com. I really don't check the Heroes Evolutions stuff too often. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:01, 1 December 2007 (EST)

Post Show & Mohinder

  • The hosts seemed to get a big kick out of your remark about Mohinder being too cute. :) (Admin 23:22, 1 December 2007 (EST))
    • Well he is! He's a fan favorite and has survived just about everything else--I think he's even more indestructible than Adam...Mostly I was just looking for an argument against Lauren....But I know who dies in the finale, so I'll keep my mouth shut from here on out. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:58, 1 December 2007 (EST)
    • Speaking of knowing things, I'm glad to see that Adam got buried :-P--  Japanimation          My Talk   23:50, 3 December 2007 (EST)
      • I'm looking forward to watching this week's Post Show clip. Japanimation, did Ryan already give you the dvd to upload?--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:56, 3 December 2007 (EST)
        • I haven't even burned it yet. I'll get around to it and I'll see Japanimation on Wednesday. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:02, 4 December 2007 (EST)
          • Is it online now?--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:04, 6 December 2007 (EST)
            • My meeting with Japanimation got snowed out last night. I'll see if I can get the DVD to him this weekend...By the way, George Takei's dramatic reading is to die for! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:06, 6 December 2007 (EST)
              • Cool, perhaps you can convince Japanimation to add that to the clip he publishes. Cause I think unless you tell him otherwise, he's going to continue only publishing the portion of the show that has you in it.--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:33, 6 December 2007 (EST)
                • Yeah, I have that burned to the DVD also. I plan to put a link on George Takei's page to the upcoming YT vid. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:35, 6 December 2007 (EST)
                  • Sounds like this week's Post Show was a good one too.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:51, 9 December 2007 (EST)
                    • Is this your gentle reminder? ... Yes, it was good--there were some nice interviews. I always prefer to hear from the creators (Allan Arkush and Tim Kring) than I do from the actors. Of course, Jack Coleman is always good for some laughs. Yeah, it was a good episode. Nice that it was an hour too...I have a few sections from last week's show burned on a DVD, and I think I'll burn George Takei and William Shatner's segments tonight as well. Then I'll see Japanimation at church tomorrow and hopefully he'll get it on YouTube when he gets a chance. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:56, 9 December 2007 (EST)
                      • Yes, it was my gentle reminder. ;) Tommorrow it is then...--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:03, 9 December 2007 (EST)

Alot of (ability) name changes

http://theories.activatingevolution.org/swiki/wiki/index.php/List_of_Anomalistic_Abilities

i guess this seems a pretty good place to kind the 'real' ability names. for example on here theres 'induced radioactivity' but here its named as Radiokinesis. ah well i though you might wanna change some of the names lol

http://theories.activatingevolution.org/swiki/wiki/index.php/Radiokinesis (induce radioactivity) http://theories.activatingevolution.org/swiki/wiki/index.php/Florakinesis (plant control) http://theories.activatingevolution.org/swiki/wiki/index.php/Cryokinesis (freezing)lol XD http://theories.activatingevolution.org/swiki/wiki/index.php/Spontaneous_Regeneration (Rapid cell regeneration) http://theories.activatingevolution.org/swiki/wiki/index.php/Omnilinguality (Omnilingualism) somewhat minor http://theories.activatingevolution.org/swiki/wiki/index.php/Self-Duplication (replication) http://theories.activatingevolution.org/swiki/wiki/index.php/Electrokinesis (lightning)

and http://theories.activatingevolution.org/swiki/wiki/index.php/Emotion_Manipulation (bliss and horror) i though i might as well put that one cause on the page it actually says the haitians father had that ability

btw sent this to the other admins too. have fun lol--Ashwilson12 (talk) 15:40, 2 December 2007 (EST)

  • You would think it'd be a good place to get names for abilities, but activatingevolution.org is actually a wiki much like this one. The biggest difference is that that wiki is frequently vandalized, poorly patrolled, and full of misinformation. With very few exceptions on that site, I would consider most of the pages at activatingevolution.org to be fan speculation. Unfortunately, we won't be using any of the power information on our site. Thanks, though! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:43, 2 December 2007 (EST)

Pic size?

  • I was wondering if you could help me with something. I uploaded a pic for my profile that is too big. How do I make it the size of the character pages? Is there some type of code? Thanks,

Nick Petrelli 21:01, 4 December 2007 (EST)

    • Just add |*px at the end of the image name. (*=size) for example Sunset.jpg --  Seclusion  talk / contribs 21:05, 4 December 2007 (EST)
    • The easiest way is to reupload it at 200x250 or something close. Otherwise, you can force the px width by entering a pipe and a number followed by px. The whole line should look like this: | image =[[Image:Nickpetrelli.jpg|200px]] -- if you still need help, don't hesitate to ask. By the way, cool picture--did you make that yourself? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:05, 4 December 2007 (EST)
      • Thanks, and I did make it. drew it and photoshoped itNick Petrelli 21:08, 4 December 2007 (EST)
        • I like your style. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:09, 4 December 2007 (EST)
        • By the way, you had a double equals sign which was showing up in the infobox itself. I took the liberty of removing it for you. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:11, 4 December 2007 (EST)

Oops...

Well I guess I don't know how to alphabetize... That's librarians for ya.. eh.. lol sorry Random guy 22:09, 4 December 2007 (EST)

  • Oh, no worries at all. I just got finished saying that you did a great job in making the move very complete. Many people only update a few articles, or just move the article and leave all the work for somebody else. Thank you for taking the time to update all the templates and other pages. Alphabetizing is an easy fix. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:11, 4 December 2007 (EST)

when do you sleep?

I laugh as I just noticed that you live in EST, and you're up at 2 AM. Tomorrow is Friday and, last I checked, school is in session. Don't you need your shuteye to deal with those second graders and teach your curriculum? ;)--SacValleyDweller (talk) 02:05, 7 December 2007 (EST)

  • ...and I woke up at 5 am this morning. I have chronic insomnia. It goes along well with my narcolepsy, and I end up getting very balanced sleep. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:44, 7 December 2007 (EST)
    • you and I both Ryan :) Random guy 07:42, 7 December 2007 (EST)

Caitlin

I won't touch the current image, but what are your thoughts on this one? --Cylon 12:47, 7 December 2007 (EST)

  • Yes, I like that image better. Her makeup looks better and she just looks "softer". I'll take care of it now. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:32, 7 December 2007 (EST)

nbls?

what's this curious nbls thing you're doing?--SacValleyDweller (talk) 01:51, 9 December 2007 (EST)

  • Ryan's adding non-breaking links.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:52, 9 December 2007 (EST)
  • They're non-breaking links. Rather than typing [[Virginia's snow globes|Virginia's snow globes]], we can just type {{nbl|Virginia's snow globes}}. Then, on the navbars, if the link falls at the end of the line, it won't be broken up between two lines. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:54, 9 December 2007 (EST)

Mission trips

I go all over, but mainly the Southern US, like Biloxi Mississippi, Tampa Bay Florida, Orlando, Auburn, Alabama. Mourning Sage 19:14, 11 December 2007 (EST)

  • Cool, just curious. I went on a two-year mission to Albania. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:39, 11 December 2007 (EST)
  • That's awesome. My mom says I'm not old enough to go out of country yet, but I want to. Mourning Sage 19:13, 11 December 2007 (EST)

Rooijker spelling

Sorry about mangling that...and missing the "i"...noticed you've been following me around, and cleaning up after my mess. Thanks. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 12/13/2007 13:53 (EST)

  • Oh yeah, no problem at all. Simple mistake, simple fix. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:55, 13 December 2007 (EST)

Saving Charlie

  • Hey Ryan, I was wondering, what type of canonization are Heroes books like Saving Charlie going to be considered? Jason Garrick 23:17, 16 December 2007 (EST)
    • Good questions. There's a bit of a discussion about it here. I think it'll probably be considered about the same level as the Heroes Evolutions content. However, it's hard to say since I haven't read it and it hasn't come out yet. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 05:13, 17 December 2007 (EST)

Derek?!

  • You saw him too, huh? What the hell is that about?! Angela and Sylar?!?! Man, I love this show! Just thought I'd share that with ya... sorry... :o--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  02:46, 18 December 2007 (EST)
    • Don't ever be sorry for fangasming! :) Yeah, weird. My guess is that in the next volume, they're going to not only introduce new villains to us and up the ante, but they'll also explore the psyche of villains a little bit. I'm thinking that's gotta be a dream that's haunting Sylar. Who knows, though, eh? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:43, 18 December 2007 (EST)

Lightning

So sorry, i'll change it back now. Sorry, i've changed eveything Back.. You really know your stuff, eh?? -- Ninja-duck 15:13, 20 December 2007

  • That's okay. I just wanted to let you know the reason for not calling it "electrokinses". But yeah, I'm kind of obsessive about Heroes, so I try to familiarize myself with as much about the show as possible, from the episodes to the graphic novels, and from the Heroes Evolutions content to interviews. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:19, 20 December 2007 (EST)
    • People obsessed with Heroes? On Heroes Wiki?! Doesn't sound very likely to me. :) (A tiger? In Africa?!) (Admin 15:29, 20 December 2007 (EST))

Automatic function or not?

If I attempt to remove (or perhaps add) a character or actor to their correct place in the Portals, will the portal update itself by adding (if/and removing) the next character/actor from the next page or push (if adding) the, now extra, character/actor into the next portal page automatically? Or is this something that needs to be done by hand? -- Lulu .:talk:. 20:03, 20 December 2007 (EST)

  • The character portals are still done by hand. In fact, the only portals that are automated right now are the Season Two minor characters. Was there something specific you wanted to update? Did you want to try it yourself? If so, go ahead, but let me know if you run into any snags and I'd be more than happy to help you out. I'll be online for another half hour or so. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:06, 20 December 2007 (EST)
    • Lucky me, then. Time to remove the now red-linked "Mr. Bennet's Boss" from the first portal and update all the other portals to adjust to this change! I'll handle it myself, its not actually that much of a task. -- Lulu .:talk:. 20:08, 20 December 2007 (EST)
      • More stuff to make you happy...While you're updating the Season One portals, a few other things need to be taken care of in there: Sanjog Iyer needs to be added, Kensei needs to move to Fake Kensei, Shanti Suresh needs to be added, so does the Women's Correctional Facility guard, the being who might see Molly (and that's how he should be listed, and without a picture since there wasn't one for that season), and the cabbie could also be added... Mr. Petrelli and Monty Petrelli also need to be alphabetized. Do what you want, and I'll take care of the rest if you're not in the mood for such a big project tonight. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:13, 20 December 2007 (EST)
        • No, it's not that large a project. I'll get started. Btw, Mr. Petrelli is listed as Arthur in the portal, are you wanting him to be named "Mr. Petrelli?" -- Lulu .:talk:. 20:15, 20 December 2007 (EST)
          • Oh, I was just looking at Template:PortalCharNav/Season One, which still has him listed as Mr. Petrelli. I suppose it just needs to read "Arthur" to be alphabetical. But that's probably a moot point since you'll be making lots of other changes and things will switch around. Incidentally, I suppose you could use Image:Being who might see Molly.jpg as a character portrait--it's from Season Two, but I think it's fine to use since it's not a picture of Maury...plus it'll take another image off special:unusedimages. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:22, 20 December 2007 (EST)
  • Would you like me to remove Amid Halebi? He is listed as a Season 1 minor, however he isn't one. If he is included, then all the other In His Own Image unaireds should probably be added as well (Which, incidentally, might make this project bigger than my mood from tonight encompasses.) -- Lulu .:talk:. 20:41, 20 December 2007 (EST)
  • I'm taking care of the Template Portal, as well. -- Lulu .:talk:. 21:20, 20 December 2007 (EST)
    • It's looking fantastic! Kudos on juggling lots of tasks at once. Four minor things to fix:
      1. Shanti is alphabetized by her first name, but she should be alphabetized by her last name.
      2. Use Image:Women's Correctional Facility guard.jpg
      3. Portal:Minor10/Season One needs to be in standard format. Specifically, change the width of the top row to 75%, and make a new table for the second row so it's centered.
      4. I didn't realize that Amid Halebi was listed under "Engineer". That's a name from the unaired pilot. The name as it appears on the list is "Amid Halebi". He'll have to be realphabetized.
    • Other than that, awesome job! Let me know if you'd like me to take care of any of the above tasks. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:32, 20 December 2007 (EST)
      • I think I got everything. Phew. Teach me to ever consider messing with the portals :] -- Lulu .:talk:. 21:42, 20 December 2007 (EST)
        • Yeah, they're a beast, aren't they? Now you can appreciate why I'm so happy that they'll be automated, and why I've left that growing list of portal updates on my to do list for so long... :) Great work! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:44, 20 December 2007 (EST)
          • Thanks! -- Lulu .:talk:. 21:45, 20 December 2007 (EST)

Aww, 'Grats

I've got several new, little people entering my life as well, so I know how much of a joy they can bring. Congratulations. -- Lulu .:talk:. 20:50, 21 December 2007 (EST)

  • Thanks, Lulu. Much appreciated. My wife and I are both very excited! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:51, 21 December 2007 (EST)
    • Indeed, congrats! You are very fortunate.--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:04, 21 December 2007 (EST)
  • Congratulations! :) --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 01:37, 22 December 2007 (EST)
  • Several? You expecting twins? Either way, congratulations. :) (Admin 01:38, 22 December 2007 (EST))

Remove redirect.

I noticed you removed the Baseball bat link from Marcus, so could you delete the Bat page? -- Lulu .:talk:. 13:44, 25 December 2007 (EST)

  • Thanks -- Lulu .:talk:. 13:47, 25 December 2007 (EST)
    • You're welcome. I didn't realize there was a redirect page for it, so thanks for bringing it to my attention. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:48, 25 December 2007 (EST)
      • You didn't notice because I had just made it. ;] Either way, you're also welcome. -- Lulu .:talk:. 13:50, 25 December 2007 (EST)

Drucker Puzzles

I don't know if this warrants an edit or not, so I thought I'd forward it to you. This is regarding the William Congreve puzzle. It's already been noted that the quotes are from "The Mourning Bride." The quotes given are the opening lines from Act One, Scene One.

But the most famous quote from that play is even more intriguing: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." It's interesting to note, particularly in light of Angela Petrelli and her "Pandora's Box" reference. The actual quote is "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor Hell a fury like a woman scorned." And ... wait for it ... it's the last line of the last act.

Hmmm ... the beginning and the end? Sounds like the puzzle.--Lorivolkman (talk) 19:07, 26 December 2007 (EST)

  • I noticed that too when I started working on the puzzle, but I wasn't quite sure where to put it, if anywhere at all. I mean, there's no mention of "the end" or of "seeing things through" or of any rational reason to include the more famous line...I think it's a nice piece of information, and something to certainly keep in the backs of our minds, but I can't see what it has to do with the clue. But then again, I can't figure out the clue for the life of me. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:29, 26 December 2007 (EST)

New Comment code bug?

I just forwarded the above message. Somehow Lori managed to post it here. It seems weird to me that she was able to post there. I added an afd to it so it can be deleted.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:25, 26 December 2007 (EST)

  • Weird. I've had a similar problem with my new laptop--every once in awhile (I haven't found a solid pattern yet, though I think it only happens when I use the laptop when logged in to my work's network), if I go to edit a page, it open a new page called something like "Richard_Drucker&action=edit". I suspect it's something similar. Odd, though, isn't it? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:21, 26 December 2007 (EST)

Slusho

Have you seen this?--  Japanimation          My Talk   08:58, 27 December 2007 (EST)

  • Yeah. J.J. Abrams said somewhere (don't ask me to find the quote) that slusho.jp would have subtle clues about Cloverfield. Hmm... I added the site to the External Links section of Slusho. Thanks for the heads up! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:16, 27 December 2007 (EST)

It looks like I'm still doing something wrong.

(Incidentally, I forgot Help:Signatures existed because it frustrated my last time I tried to use it, cause I was much less experienced in wikilingo.)

Regardless, after my attempt at doing as the page asks:

  • Created autopage
  • Entered {{subst:User:Lulu/autosig}} into Nickname.
  • Clicked Raw signatures.

I'm still having issues. Please enlighten me, oh gracious one. --Lulu

  • You're very kind. :) What you need to do is two simple things: create an autosig for yourself at User:Lulu/autosig where the only text on the page is -- {{User:Lulu/sig}}. Then, on your preferences, go to the "Nickname" spot, and type {{SUBST:User:Lulu/autosig}} and make sure "Raw signatures" is checked. That should do it for you. If that's still not working, let me know. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:33, 27 December 2007 (EST)
    • Wow, I feel dumb, in my haste I copy pasted User:UlurusGirlfriend/autosig without editing it. That should probably be deleted. Thanks. <_> --Lulu
      • Yeah, I just noticed that's what you did. Heh, go figure. Well, at least you have the process down. Maybe we should have a help page for copy-pasting. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:40, 27 December 2007 (EST)
        • I wonder how many people besides me would benefit from it. Would the content be something like: "Pay attention! You may want to edit your copypasta!" Anyway, thanks, without you it would have taken me much longer to realize User:Lulu/autosig was still a redlink. -- Lulu (talk) 17:43, 27 December 2007 (EST)
          • lol. I'm glad I could help. I don't want to step on toes (I know the value of figuring it out yourself), but I also saw you were having a hard time. All's well that end's well, eh? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:44, 27 December 2007 (EST)
            • Well yes. But you don't ever need to feel like you're stepping on toes with me, all help is appreciated. The sandbox had just become the most plausible course of action at that point. I had grown tired of plaguing up talk pages. :] -- Lulu (talk) 17:48, 27 December 2007 (EST)
              • What? Three lines of code for a signature? That ain't no plague! ... 'Sides, I'm still salivating over the thought of copypasta. Must be good with a nice alfredo paste. Mmm, yummy. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:53, 27 December 2007 (EST)
                • It is quite the treat. :] -- Lulu (talk) 17:54, 27 December 2007 (EST)

Here's your message

  • Here's that message you wanted. Have a pretty picture with it.

Requesting permission...

... to move Special to Special (theme). I ask because the discussion's been going on for ages, but the general, small consensus appears to be yes, and, honestly, I'm an impatient guy. :D Thanks for your time, Ryan! Oh, and why's my sig being weird??? --  Lost Soul   talk  contribs , 03:08, 29 December 2007 (EST)

  • Well, it's not really my place to grant or deny permission to move a page--that would be up to the community. I like the page you made about the theme of being special, but to be honest, I'm not a big contributor on the recurring themes pages, so I don't really have too strong an opinion one way or the other. If you want to move it, I don't personally have a problem with it. However, make sure you don't move Special, because that's a redirect to Graphic Novel:Special which needs to stay as it is. I'm assuming you're talking about moving User:Lost Soul/Special to "special (theme)", which makes more sense. I would suggest, however, that a disambig page ("special (disambig)") be created to distinguish the two pages....I also fixed your signature. Your "noinclude" needed to be moved up--you a line break as part of your sig, so the date was being put on the next line. It should be fixed now, but let me know if you're still having problems with it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 03:25, 29 December 2007 (EST)
    • I know, and thanks. I'll go ahead and move that page either on my lunch break, or when I get home from work. Thanks for fixing the sig! :D--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  03:37, 29 December 2007 (EST)

Yumi Mizui

I was going to get around to creating redlink, so why not start with the top? Anyway, I ran into some road blocks. Firstly, Yumi Mizui on IMDb doesn't list her as being connected to Heroes in anyway, so I don't even know if that Yumi Mizui is the same Yumi who is connected to Heroes, anyway. There is also a Yumi listed at Memory Alpha, and I don't know if that is her, either. Her only mention on Wikipedia is on the Tales From The Dead page.

Additionally, the only picture I could find and confirm to be her is this one. Would it be acceptable to crop the picture to (mostly) only feature her, and then resize it?

Your thoughts? -- Lulu (talk) 15:05, 30 December 2007 (EST)

  • Sorry, I've been on the road for the last 36 hours, and am glad to finally be back home. :) I'm going to continue this conversation at Talk:Yumi Mizui. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:12, 31 December 2007 (EST)
