Ryan its July, archive time, meaning this will be at the top of the page, yay.-- By Danko CH 19:48, 1 July 2009 (EDT)

Just dropping by, to say I'm still alive =P

  • Hi Ryan, I was kidding about the title by the way :D. Just wanna say hi and that I'm sorry that I haven't been contributing and logging in HeroesWiki lately. I never realize that after highschool, my life would be so busy -- college applications, CVs, interviews, exams! -- Student life kills! LOL --NiveKJ13 (talk2me) 18:09, 3 July 2009 (EDT)
    • Same goes for me. Not the specifics, but in general. I haven't been round for a while. -- Tristan0709 talk 23:13, 3 July 2009 (EDT)
      • I haven't been around for awhile either. Busy running Scout camp, with a slow internet connection to boot. Have a great summer, boys! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:08, 6 July 2009 (EDT)

Sorry to bother you

Hi Ryan, if you have time could you confirm that this IMDB page is for Jamie Maxtone-Graham and that this one is for Scott Steele also that this one is for Joey Watts. I know they probably are but I don't want to add incorrect information on pages. Thanks in advance also could you tell me on my talk page so I can add the credits as soon as you confirm :) --posted by Laughingdevilboy Talk 18:03, 14 July 2009 (EDT)

  • Don't worry about the lateness, I have added their credits, could you also confirm if this is for Angela Gurule and that this is for Dave Snyder, this is for Anton Holden, this is for Michael Hooser, this is for Mark Steele and finally that this is for Burton Weinstein. Don't worry if it takes you a while I know you are away and I am sorry there are so many, but I have been busy. As before if you could tell me on my talk page I would be very grateful :) also on a side note, what is an ADR editor and is that job under sound or music? Thanks again and don't worry if you cant answer before August :) Enjoy your camping :) --posted by Laughingdevilboy

Talk 16:24, 26 July 2009 (EDT)

    • Those are all correct, to the best of my knowledge. ADR means Automatic Dialogue Replacement, and it's a job for a sound editor. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:10, 1 August 2009 (EDT)

New Template

I did what it said to do on Help: Templates, but I wasn't able to get it to work. Can you please help me? (User:Iheartheroes/Template:Iheartheroes' Template)

--Iheartheroes 17:23, 15 July 2009 (EDT)

  • I think I fixed it. Does that work for you?--Bob (talk) 18:51, 17 July 2009 (EDT)
  • Yeah! Thanks! Now, to add to it what do I have to do?
  • Never mind! I got it! Thanks again! How do I add a Bar to the top of it though?--Iheartheroes 17:42, 18 July 2009 (EDT)

Two Things

Hey Ryan, long time no annoyance. Anyway just wanted to say a few things. Firstly, I'm going on holiday from Monday so I won't be on for a while and secondly, on the facebook site for Heroes Wiki, who are the admins, I was just wondering as it is a bit dejected, I think that it could use some help :) Thanks as always --IronyUTC CH 18:01, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

  • I'm an admin, and Admin is an admin on the Facebook site. I'm open to suggestions to improve the page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:11, 25 July 2009 (EDT)

please delete this image

can you please delete this image of me Image:Dylan_09.jpg i had it categorized for deletion forever and its still up. Superdylan56 04:56, 26 July 2009

Hi Ryan

  • I saw those edits, welcome back, is camp over then?-- By Danko CH 17:17, 11 August 2009 (EDT)
    • Thanks, Danko. Yep, camp is over. I got home some time on Sunday, and have been hanging out with my family. It was a great summer! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:40, 11 August 2009 (EDT)


  • Ryan are you on, I don't think Miami is so look at this please User_talk:MiamiVolts#Vandals-- By Danko CH 16:24, 14 August 2009 (EDT)
    • Its OK he is on and the vandal blocked-- By Danko CH 16:31, 14 August 2009 (EDT)

Check It Out!

Hey, I just wanted to stop by and say hello... Hello! Well I have posted a blog... I wanted you to check it out and leave comments. I would love to hear them :) The website is So please check it out!--PsloverUTC 18:04, 14 August 2009 (EDT)

Apsect Ratio

I have noticed for a few images I have uploaded, such as thumb|right|this one the one included you have placed a thing saying they need to be proper aspect ratio. What is that? If I knew how to do it I would be able to reupload them properly :) AJUTChronicles

  • It means that the image is "squished", and needs to be fixed. For example, in the image that you linked to, Angela's face has been stretched out. In this image, Noah and Angela's bodies have been stretched out too much. --Radicell 05:23, 15 August 2009 (EDT)

Help, please?

Hey, I'm new here so I need help. I want to know how to add a fan fiction. I probably should ask someone else if you're busy. Thanks anyway. Kyle Stevens 00:51, 16 August 2009 (EDT)

  • It looks like you've already figured it out...but basically, you'll want to have your username before the titles of any pages you create. So if you want to create a page called "Claire's balloon", the title should actually be "User:Kyle Stevens/Claire's balloon". If you need more help, let me know. I'm not online all the time, but if you leave a message for me, I'll certainly get back to you when I get a chance. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:55, 16 August 2009 (EDT)


Hi RGS, you might need to delete that Episode:Gift again. Thought there is a userpage of that, Sylar12 has created another one. You also might need to talk to him about making user pages. I tried but it didn't work.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 16:16, 16 August 2009 (EDT)

  • I also moved his New Heroes into his userspace, but again he created a whole new page of it with the same stuff on it. But the weird part is is that he is working on both pages.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 16:29, 16 August 2009 (EDT)
    • I deleted the new mainspace pages and left a warning. Hopefully, he/she gets the point and works only on the userspace pages.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:07, 16 August 2009 (EDT)


Your Welcome! I enjoy helping out! But I would like some help on some explanations on some of them..or help completeing them! That would be nice too! But anyways, your welcome! :) --Iheartheroes 21:07, 16 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Anything in particular that you'd like me to clarify for you? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:10, 16 August 2009 (EDT)
    • Only one that I can think of right on the top of my head...If it says "___ (list new "{Place Subject Here}" here)" does that mean that there aren't any? Or does that mean that no one has taken the time to find that subject thing? --Iheartheroes 21:18, 16 August 2009 (EDT)
      • It could mean either. When we add the checklist, that's the default text that appears. It's then up to users to add the information. If there's nothing added, it means that either there's nothing to add (and nobody took the time to delete the line), or that nobody's taken the time to add the subject. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:55, 16 August 2009 (EDT)
        • MMk, I may sound dumb on this next one, but what does it mean on a new episode, the first line is Episode Screencap. What does that mean? Idk if I can cross it off on some or not. --Iheartheroes 08:11, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
          • You don't sound dumb. :) The episode screencap is the main image for each episode. It's the one that goes in the infobox. It should be sized at 300x169. We have an image for every episode up to this point. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:30, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
        • Another, what does "Check that links from last weeks episode works" mean?
          • That simply means that in the infobox for the previous episode, that there's a link to the newest episode. In other words, there should be a link in the infobox on Episode:Genesis to Episode:Don't Look Back.
        • Also, On Going Postal, Part 2 do we need Story Development? Cuz that's the only one left.. --Iheartheroes 22:06, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
          • I'm not a big fan of the story development sections...but especially when there's nothing new that's in the episode or webisode, I really don't think we need it. I think that page is fine as it is. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:30, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
            • User:Catalyst said that Echo DeMille's home and Gina needed to be added. I agree with him, but what do you think? --22:41, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
              • Like I said, I don't care much for the story development sections anyway. If you think it needs to be added, go for it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:26, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
  • Another question, for the songs, do they usually say the song names and artists in the credits after each episode? --Iheartheroes 23:40, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
  • One other note--webisode credits don't typically get their own credits. Since there's so few of them, we can just put the credits in the lead section of the director/writer's page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:57, 17 August 2009 (EDT)


Wait, what EXACTLY am I supposed to do so my images won't be deleted? Kyle Stevens 23:57, 16 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Somewhere on the image's page, you'll need to put the source for the image. A link to the website where you got the image would be sufficient. (A search engine like Google Images would not be sufficient.) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:51, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
    • What about now? I did what you said although I have the feeling that I did something wrong. Kyle Stevens 14:05, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
      • I don't know what you did. You have several images that you've uploaded, and many of them are missing sources. I don't see any image pages that you've changed. Could you give me a link or let me know which image it was that you changed so I can help you out? By the way, a good example of how to source an image is this one. When you're editing the image's page, it would look something like this. You'll want to make sure you do the same for all your images. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:26, 17 August 2009 (EDT)
  • Hey Ryan, and what if I am the one who made the image? What should I put instead of the source? Green.gif AltesUTC CH
    • If you created the image, you should put yourself as the source (your username is fine). See Image:Calendar pre eclipse.jpg, for example. However, if you are taking a screenshot and altering it, the source should note that it's a screenshot, but that it's been altered by you. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:12, 18 August 2009 (EDT)

Taken Care Of

Hey, sorry. We had no idea the links didnt work but we have gone back through them and fixed it all. We now know how to properly link them and their should be no more problems in the future. Thanks for alerting us. Josh KorolenkoUTChronicles

Hey, there. Check it out!

I wanted to drop by and say hi......Hi. I made this article and I want to see what other people think of it. CLICK HERE. Please leave comments on the talk page. :) :) --Kyle Stevens 22:35, 18 August 2009 (EDT)

Contest. Join?

Hey! I have my own contest and wanted to know if you wanted to enter. Well, you would have to read the episode summaries first.......But no worries, enter here! :) :) :) --Kyle Stevens 23:40, 18 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Thanks for the offer, but I'd rather not enter any contests right now. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:48, 19 August 2009 (EDT)

Regarding Seal

On his page, it lists his ability, or rather abilities, as Intuitive Empathy and Empathic Communication. I understand that these are his powers on Heroes Survival, but as this page is about his Civilian history, should his ability be confirmed? I mean, it wasn't mentioned in the iStory and he himself was only mentioned in a one off sentence. What do you think? Josh KorolenkoUTChronicles

  • The page Seal is not about just the Civilian history, but about the character named Seal. Similarly, Rachel Mills's page is not just about her iStory appearances, but also about her episodic history and her graphic novel history. But in any case, I've put out a few emails to get the answer to your question. In fact, I asked the larger question about who it is who runs certain profiles, and which profiles should be considered "official" and which shouldn't. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:07, 19 August 2009 (EDT)
    • Please make the Size alteration ability page as I have to go now. Thank you.:) Josh KorolenkoUTChronicles

abandoned hospital

What category would the abandoned hospital be under, medical, or education/research? I put both, but if there is only one, I will take off the other.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 18:14, 19 August 2009 (EDT)

  • I would say medical. But that's my opinion. --Kyle Stevens 18:23, 19 August 2009 (EDT)
    • I thought that too, but they were doing some sort of research/tests.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 18:40, 19 August 2009 (EDT)
      • I think Category:Medical is the best choice, since we know it was once a hospital, and there was medical paraphernalia in the background. We have no idea what kind of research was being done beyond medical research, so it's best to keep the category to what we know. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:20, 19 August 2009 (EDT)


Hey I have just finished doing the sources for all of the images that I have uploaded. AJ still needs to do his but they will be done. Also, there are a few of my own that I have marked for deletion as they are not needed. Josh KorolenkoUTChronicles

  • Thanks, JK. If all that's needed is a source, then you can remove the AFD tag. I'll check those other images that you deleted. Thanks for the heads up. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:28, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
    • A lot of the sources were sourced with links to Google Images' result page for that specific image. I have fixed most of them, but there's still a few that need to be checked up on (by Ryan, or JK, or whoever). Mother and Mary_Grifin.jpg are two that I found where I'm not sure the source is working. If possible, please remove the link to Google Images' result page as well and replace it with the link to the actual image. --Radicell 08:54, 22 August 2009 (EDT)


Looks like vandals have got themselves a new idol instead of Harry Fletcher, and it's none other than Tracy Strauss. =( Green.gif AltesUTC CH

  • It seems you're right [[1]] -- By Danko CH 07:19, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
    • I don't see anything wrong with Mr. muggles mike's contributions to Theory:Tracy Strauss. What exactly is the issue? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:31, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
      • Umm, absurd theories about imaginary aspects of Tracy's ability such as shooting ice blasts, absorbing water, enlarging herself and shape shifting? Green.gif AltesUTC CH
        • Those theories aren't that crazy. They can be honest thoughts from the users.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 11:26, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
          • Right. I don't see any of those as outlandish theories, or spamming like with Harry Fletcher. Tracy seemed to shoot an ice blast in Cold Snap, she seems to have some aspect of her ability that makes her turn into or absorb water (An Invisible Thread), her ability seemed a lot like shape shifting, and perhaps related to it (An Invisible Thread), and it's completely plausible that if she can grow from a puddle to a full-grown woman that she would be able to enlarge herself. Theories are all about imagining aspects of abilities and characters. I'm still not sure how this constitutes vandalism. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:33, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
            • My bad, then. Green.gif AltesUTC CH


Wow, those were lots of afds, have you ever considered having a bot with sysop rights? It would make things a lot easier on your side. Or did you do it via a bot working under your username? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 16:31, 20 August 2009 (EDT)

wikipedia:Wp:Pywikipedia. Joeyaa 17:34, 30 August 2009 (EDT)

Heroes Oddity

This is Gabriel Bishop to Ryan Gibson,

Im here to say im back

And I hope you had a lovely time away.

I look forward to speaking to you another dayyy. ;) Gabriel BishopUTC 09:54, 21 August 2009 (EDT)

New User :(

this new user, doesn't seem that good. :(--Catalyst · Talk · HL 19:52, 23 August 2009 (EDT)

  • sorry for making a talk page for him. I didn't check his name. Yeah...maybe that isn't the best name. -Vampirate68 19:53, 23 August 2009 (EDT)
  • Whoa. It might just be TheEvilNoob, or someone else you have blocked, like Mdj. --Boom D  14  19:59, 23 August 2009 (EDT)
  • Someone doesn't like you. Heads up. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 19:53, 23 August 2009 (EDT)
    • Thanks for the heads up guys. He's got a couple of sock puppets that I'll block now. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:36, 23 August 2009 (EDT)
      • Possibly more? Ryan, Fool, TwoAccountsWereNotMine, HOWSTUPlDDOYOUGETRYAN.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 21:51, 23 August 2009 (EDT)
        • Ryan this new user needs to be checked, thx.-- By Danko CH 04:43, 24 August 2009 (EDT)
        • I blocked the accounts for HOWSTUPlDDOYOUGETRYAN and TwoAccountsWereNotMine, since they were unacceptable usernames. The others, I suspect they are likely the same user, but am not sure. Admin can check the ip information to see if it's the same person, but I cannot.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:29, 24 August 2009 (EDT)
          • It's also time to cut the cord on User:Adamhiro. He seems to be antisocial and doesn't listen to anything we tell him, creating user pages in the namespace and being belligerent about it. --Radicell 08:04, 25 August 2009 (EDT)
            • As I was just looking through the recent changes this morning, I was thinking the same thing (but got your message before I could get to it). I'm not keen on a permanent block, but more of a warning block for a short amount of time. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:59, 25 August 2009 (EDT)
        • Hey, this is kinda funny and sad. --Boom D  14  08:19, 28 August 2009 (EDT)


Hey Ryan, yeah i got a little bit confused with the whole spoiler reporting business, but just check the ODI for the details on the episode and GN titles. Thanks so much!TracyStraussFan 15:23, 25 August 2009 (EDT)

The edit for Marc's character history

Hey there rgs - re: this revision that ya had to do as a result of my meddlin' - sorry 'bout that - I was just dividin' the text into paragraphs, although I'm not up on the wiki text rules (if numbers hafta be spelled out, then the "3 minutes apart" should be "three minutes apart" - and designatin' which characters are which with quotes? I had no clue. lol)...

So, how much time a day do ya spend doin' stuff at this site?!? Anyway, thanks for all ya do! 'ROESian

  • No problem at all, 'ROESian. And thanks for the heads up on the other numeral. They're just good grammatical practices, not really "rules" per se. In the summer I usually have a lot more time to play around on the wiki since I'm not working. Thanks for all you do, too! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:36, 26 August 2009 (EDT)

Tom Inkel leaves next month

Just a heads-up. Tom tweeted today that he's leaving NBC in three weeks. I posted about it on the Community Portal talk page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:08, 27 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Thanks. I was just checking that out... :( -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:09, 27 August 2009 (EDT)
  • I'll email you a funny story, Miami. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:11, 27 August 2009 (EDT)
    • Ok, got it. Thanks for cheering me up some.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:17, 27 August 2009 (EDT)

Claire's Civilian/Faction

We have Rachel's Civilian and Faction Zero history on her main page instead of her Season Three page. Can we please do the same for Claire? Josh KorolenkoUTChronicles

  • I actually don't think we should "archive" any of the Heroes Evolutions content. It doesn't really fit with any season, and most of the main characters (like Sandra, Claire, Hiro, and others) only appear a little bit, or not enough to make the page super long. I'd personally like to see all the iStory content on the characters' main pages, and not on their archive pages. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:33, 29 August 2009 (EDT)
    • But what happens 2 seasons down the road? Or even one? It will be a long page on whomever it is. I say we put them on both and take them off the main page after a while. Anybody agree? --Iheartheroes 10:03, 29 August 2009 (EDT)
      • Putting them on both is not ideal--the purpose of an archive page is to remove the information from the character's main page. I don't believe that there is any main character who is featured prominently in the iStory and the episodes or graphic novels. Rachel lives primarily in the iStory, though she has popped up elsewhere. Claire lives primarily in the episodes, though she has popped up elsewhere. If that changes we can revisit it. However, my talk page is not the place for this kind of community-wide decision. You came here asking my opinion or permission, and I responded to it. This is not the place to solicit agreement or disagreement on a topic that affects the structure and policies of the wiki. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:07, 29 August 2009 (EDT)
        • Ok, but then I have one more question. What about Rachel? Is her page just going to be extremely long with Heroes Evolutions stuff?

Image Changes

Hello, I just have a question for you. A few characters, namely Daphne and Molly have (I feel) bad character portraits. So I have uploaded two images that I feel are better. Could you check them out and tell me what you think please? BTW, good work on getting that Samuel image, I think it is better then the one I uploaded. :) AJUTChronicles

  • They both need correct aspect ratios before they can be used anywhere. About the pictures, personally I think Molly's is just fine. Daphne's might be able to be improved upon. --Radicell 05:37, 29 August 2009 (EDT)
    • I agree with Radicell about the aspect ratio. However, I also feel that both Daphne's picture and Molly's picture are fine. In particular, I think Daphne's picture captures her cuteness as well as the depth of her character. I'm actually really fond of that one. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:36, 29 August 2009 (EDT)
        • I have the exact same feeling than Ryan has about these pictures. Don't change them, especially the Daphne one, she's perfect on it. <3 -- Frenchflo.gif (talk) 09:47, 29 August 2009 (EDT)

I'm sorry

Look i'm sorry i went like that it just that i think its obviuos that it is Sylar Manwithnoname 23:40, 31 August 2009

  • I think it's obvious it's Sylar, too. But obviousness is not confirmation. The Word of God is not necessary, but confirmation is. That's all. No harm, no foul. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:56, 1 September 2009 (EDT)
