Table help

Hey there. I saw you needed a bit of table help. You'll want to use colspan= to make a cell that spans more than one column. For instance,

{| class=wikitable
| '''Number''' || '''Episode''' || '''Past/Future''' || '''Centric'''
| colspan=4, align=center | [[Season One]]
| 101 || {{ep|101}} || ||
| colspan=4, align=center | [[Season One]]
| 201 || {{ep|201}} || ||


Number Episode Past/Future Centric
Season One
101 Genesis
Season One
201 Four Months Later...

Hope that helps! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:42, 2 November 2008 (EST)


Last week, my computer got infected by adware. I've been limping along with the college computers so far, this is the only opportunity I've had to Wiki. It's still not fixed, these edits now are done on the college computers. If I ever get my laptop, full story will be posted to my blog. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 11:05, 13 November 2008 (EST)

  • Dude, that sucks! I was wondering where you've been...I assumed we were just editing at different times. Good luck getting everything straightened out... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:15, 13 November 2008 (EST)

Thank You!

screencap request

You grabbed this pic for the portal. Any chance that you saved the full 650 × 350 px version of the whole screen for use here in place of the 450 x 350 version? if so could you upload it please? Thanks --SacValleyDweller (talk) 14:04, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Hello there, i will try to upload the full version with the car, but it has a watermark on it, will see if i can remove it. If so, i will upload it! Thanks for your question! -- Futurepeter ( U - T - C ) 16:16, 16 December 2008 (EST)
OK! I upload another version of this image. You can view it here. I hope you like it! -- Futurepeter ( U - T - C ) 16:32, 16 December 2008 (EST)
Thanks man! :)--SacValleyDweller (talk) 19:26, 16 December 2008 (EST)


Why did you put semicolons instead of colons before the part titles for the Webisodes in Template:Ep?--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:20, 16 December 2008 (EST)

  • It looked like proper English grammar to me. Is it? --SacValleyDweller (talk) 22:15, 16 December 2008 (EST)
    • The standard format is colons (e.g. Heroes: Origins); not sure about the grammar.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:06, 17 December 2008 (EST)

User ability: 'E=MC2'

DamakahRoku added his power to the list of abilities on the bottom of abilities pages (like on empathic mimicry... I'd remove it, but I don't know how. I noticed you commented on his talk page, so I figured you know what you're doing :) --Punxas 16:46, 17 December 2008 (EST)

  • I forwarded this to someone who can fix it, cause I dunno how.--SacValleyDweller (talk) 17:06, 17 December 2008 (EST)
    • It should be gone now. If not, you may have to purge the page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:15, 17 December 2008 (EST)
      • Thanks, guys! That was awesome! --Punxas 00:24, 18 December 2008 (EST)

Rough day at La Casa SVD

I hope things perk up for you. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:02, 23 December 2008 (EST)

  • Thanks for thinking of me :). It was nothing TOO rough. most of the TV stations around here (NBC 24 included) are pulling that DTV switch early. it was a scramble to try to get some converter boxes and some new TV's up and running running, all the while my grandma blaming my grandpa for not testing things earlier, and frustrations at TPTB that mandated this switch in the first place. Reception is hit or miss with our TV's, one is getting everything right now :) I still get NBC in my room. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 01:13, 23 December 2008 (EST)
    • At least you get a new graphic novel tomorrow, right? :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:39, 23 December 2008 (EST)


What's wrong? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 02:40, 23 December 2008 (EST)

Ability heredity

  • Hey. Just wanted to give a heads up. I was editing the ability heredity page and got the 'edit conflicts message,' since you were editing it at the same time. I'm pretty sure I included your edits in mine, but you might want to check and make sure (I went with mine since it was a lot of work doing those tables  ;)). A quick question...what should I do when the edit overlap occurs? Do I have to reincorporate the code into the top box (with the edits that were done while I was working on it), or start all over, or something else? I wasn't really sure what to do, but since I'm pretty sure I incorporated your edits into mine, and since I didn't want to have to type all of that out again, I went with replacing the top box code with mine for now, but I really want to know what normal protocol is for future. Thanks.  :) --Stevehim 00:16, 24 December 2008 (EST)
    • What you did looks good, and better that my edit! :) With regards to the edit conflict, it's been a while since one happened to me. There is no real protocol as far as I know. What I usually do is look at the top box and see if the changes are related to and are better than what I was trying to add. If yes, I just close the tab and abort making the change. If no, I try to incorporate my edit (bottom box) into the top or paste my edit in where it would fit, even on top of the existing info like you did there. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:32, 24 December 2008 (EST)
      • Cool. Thanks.  :) --Stevehim 00:52, 24 December 2008 (EST)

My ceramics work, please look! :)

Here the link to my blog post! --SacValleyDweller (talk) 02:57, 4 January 2009 (EST)

  • Wow. Great job! -- Tristan0709 talk 02:58, 4 January 2009 (EST)
    • I like the snout on the piggy. It has a cool design. Nice job! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 03:33, 4 January 2009 (EST)


No one get any ideas about those mugs they be mine and not to embarass my son I am very proud of his work ***Cheshire Grin**

My Subpages

  • Sure, that'd be great! I'd love some contributions on Interactions, Team-ups, and Abilities, and you can work on that template idea is started on if you'd like as well. Thankyou! -- Tristan0709 talk 03:59, 25 January 2009 (EST)

Re: Signature Repair

  • Thanx for fixing my signature :) I must have forgotten the </span> tag! -- Futurepeter ( U - T - C ) 18:35, 13 February 2009 (EST)


Thanks for changing my images page, I never noticed I had put Misha in the wrong place lol. --posted by Laughingdevilboy Talk 16:58, 14 February 2009 (EST)

Talk 17:21, 14 February 2009 (EST)

On your Publishing Chronology....

Thank you very much SacValleyDweller... You made me release of a long effort :)

I would just add some more details like dates, then put it in a page directly in Heroes wiki. Is it possible?

--Janrodrigo 20:22, 15 February 2009 (EST)

What I'm planning to do is to create a thorough version including, all the evolutions, release dates and also to which date it corresponds in the Heroes universe etc...

But I would be glad if we could work together.

I wouldn't like to mirror your page neither but just in the beginning it seems so. I copied it to have a base. I have a base but on Microsoft Word, so yours is just more sound base. I want to build up on it.

I'm not sure about the GN theory but it seems logical.

Look at the page now. How is it? Just the beginning of beginning of change. :)

I hope we work together.


--Janrodrigo 00:52, 16 February 2009 (EST)

I'm ok with continuing from your page. But I'm not sure if I understand what you mean second. The notation can be changed but I definitely want to put both dates (real world & heroes world). What do you say? --Janrodrigo 01:42, 16 February 2009 (EST)

Thanks. I'll continue but for now I've to deliver a homework. Cordially, --Janrodrigo 03:44, 16 February 2009 (EST)

Hi SacValleyDweller, I'm a little busy these days. But I'll start again as soon as I can. (I'm working with DNA & have to finish some experiments for my thesis) Hope to hear from you soon, Friendly, Jan,

--Janrodrigo 17:10, 18 February 2009 (EST)


Hi, Thank you for the edits. As I'd just started editing, I was going to change all the "EW"s to "HE"s.

Just one comment. I picked the term "Social Networking Website" from Wikipedia and as far as I know blogs are not SNWs. So if you don't mind I prefer to group them with Web Sites.

Look at User:Janrodrigo/Heroes Release and Arc Chronology. There I've prepared the order with which all of the HE are published.

By the way I let it, HEV (Heroes Evolutions Videos) because you'd also say so.

You got only one thing wrong. Those folders (HEF or simply F) don't contain audio and video. The audio and video are separately contained on the sites, like the ones you called HEV. And the folders contain all the pdfs, the assignment trackers etc...

Hasta luego, amigo,

--Janrodrigo 04:06, 23 February 2009 (EST)

So, what do you think? --Janrodrigo 15:33, 23 February 2009 (EST)

I think that you're actually right about numbering, I'll simplify them making them just "two-numbered" instead of three. Like S 1.01 is enough.

Although I don't agree with the date style (the American style is confusing for me and also for most of the Europeans), I'll try to adjust and apply: October 28 etc...

I've a question. What do you think we should put each time; the internal link (Heroes wiki link) or the external link? With some of them, the external link doesn't exist anymore and directs automatically to --Janrodrigo 04:06, 24 February 2009 (EST)

Another question. Do you I should put the internal link each time I'm writing that part? I mean should I do like this?

or like this?

(forgot to sign) --Janrodrigo 04:15, 24 February 2009 (EST)

Matt Parkman Edits

SVD, why have you edited the Matt Parkman page to say that "It is unknown if [his precognition] is a separate ability or an extension of his existing telepathic abilities" when it has been confirmed in a BTE interview that his precognition comes from him being able to reach the same plain of consciousness as other precogs due to his advanced telepathy? --Elemental Manipulator [ U | T | C ] - When in doubt, ask BTE 05:14, 24 February 2009 (EST)

  • Because I completly forgot about that fact! That is, until WarGrowlmon18 Made his edits at Precog and Matt articles. Consider me slapped upside the head, now, lol. :) --SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:14, 25 February 2009 (EST)

Can you watch?

Hi Sac,

I've a question in mind since a while. I'm not sure whether the links I wrote after each HEV are working properly. I am not able to watch any of the HE videos but these (those I wrote) are the links provided. I thought this might be because NBC doesn't let you watch videos outside the US and as I live in Turkey I can't watch them.

Could you check whether they're working, whether you can watch them so that we may be sure that the links aren't broken?

Thanks my friend,

--Janrodrigo 06:07, 4 March 2009 (EST)

Very bizarre indeed :) I had tried so many times and I wasn't able to watch any of the videos. But after I wrote you the message above, I was just opening the links of videos in order to copy them, and it started playing !! :) It said loading video... and then started playing, except for the voting video conferences! :) --Janrodrigo 10:12, 4 March 2009 (EST)

Season One is finished =) except for smoothings. --Janrodrigo 10:47, 4 March 2009 (EST)

On the Progress

Nice work! on the HEV's, we dont need to link directly to the vid if we already have a summary on the wiki. also, I dont think we need to bold the numbers on them any more. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 13:48, 4 March 2009 (EST)

Unfortunately we don't have summary of the videos in the wiki. So I think the direct link should stay. Did you watch any of these videos?

--Janrodrigo 13:51, 4 March 2009 (EST)

I'm quite good at trigo, if you want I can help you :) I'm doing master degree about genetics right now but I've a good history of math degrees. If you want we can talk through msn, direct mail or whatever you like :) --Janrodrigo 03:08, 6 March 2009 (EST)
  • OK, videos and Bennet audios checked. All video links working except Video Conference ones. Bennet audios 7-10 mot working. Also, we dont need to link to the sword saint vidoes, we have each chapter and part summarized at Sword Saint. Good work so far! --SacValleyDweller (talk) 20:00, 8 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Thanks Sac, I try to do as much as I've time. But sometimes I can't find a lot. Still I love Heroes so I love every part & parcel of it :)

that as a By the way, I know that we don't need the links the sword saint videos but as all the other HEV's have it, I would like to keep them too, if you don't mind. A internal link is already provided.

I liked it, that you divided the hiatus into weeks :) that's a cool way to shape the article.

Again, the template doesn't work, that's why I had changed it. (I don't know still to fix templates)

Comrades, Part 2

(Strangely enough it works here)

After finishing everything and "decorating" it nicely. Wouldn't be good to make it a direct heroes-wiki page? Any way, take care my friend,


--Janrodrigo 17:40, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

P.S. I've been researching about the canoncy of all the "doubted" GNs, that you marked pink or red. As far as I digged & analysed, I came to think that you're right about some novels written without consulting some of the main writers. But those include some more then you marked. And anyway it doesn't matter with the Hana/Drucker and Matt storyline because they occur in 2008 and we are still in 2007. Think of an aired episode which only shows us the future where no present character time-travels to the future and three characters die in that future. That would show us nothing but a possibility about what would happen if Bob and Elle wouldn't have died. (And probably when Future Peter came to shot Nathan, he crashed butterflies... leading Sylar towards Claire and Level 5...So this is maybe one of the possible 2008s that would happen if Peter wouldn't have come from 2011.) So few of the GNs over there are completely another timeline which "could happen" :)

Though I agree with you that those GNs should have been consulted before being published and also I know that they used scab writers, I also think that as already millions of people read those GNs it would have been the most difficult for the "original writers" to cancel them. And I think they had to accept them (most probably unwillingly) as a part of the storyline (because it's published). They even signed a second published GN collection including all the GNs that we are speaking about. And has afterwords added Ben Franklin as a hero. etc...

What I mean is that even if the way some published GNs are prepared in a not very decent way and if they were not "fully" consulted, we have to accept them as a part of the story-line, as now the writers have also collectively accepted it. (Though some, may be most, unwillingly) I think also that; Pokaski & Coleite were kind of protesting (very reasonably) while saying "... had nothing to do with us", also meaning "we were not consulted about..."

By the way, Chuck Kim was the only "non-scab" writer, creating GNs during the strike. He may have been consulted.

Any way I wrote too long for a "P.S." =)

Take care,

--Janrodrigo 18:11, 9 March 2009 (EDT)

Re: Mohinder and Enhanced strength.

Yes, that's why I edited the page to show that he had enhanced strength since The Second Coming, and had other mutations until Dual. The writers said enhanced strength was his "only ability remaining": He had other abilitie(s) but only enhanced strength remained. - Josh (talk/contribs) 01:26, 21 March 2009 (EDT)

Catalyst's Active and Passive abilities

How does this look to you?--Catalyst

Alright, doing it now.--Catalyst

Although, i am not to familiar with these abilities which makes me unsure which are active or passive.

Alright, it's done. tell me what you think. Oh, where should we put this page so people can see it?

thanks. my reason for changing the names was because i didn't think my page would be seen by everyone. i'll switch all names back now. you were a good help and thanks again.

Should i go ahead and change all the abilities mimicked/acquired to the box form like we talked about?--Catalyst

So what are we going to do about my page User:Catalyst/Active & Passive Abilities?-- Catalyst · Talk · HL 21:47, 27 March 2009 (EDT)

Take a look at it now and see how it is.-- Catalyst · Talk · HL 13:17, 28 March 2009 (EDT)

Alright, I looked through twice, and thinks the page is finally done. Take a look at it for me and see if I did miss anything. But tell me what you think and what the future of the page will be. Thanks.-- Catalyst » My talk Page- 20:11, 29 March 2009 (EDT)

Ok!, Thanks for all the help, and fee free to edit all you want.-- Catalyst » My talk Page- 16:36, 30 March 2009 (EDT)


Now, i sort of know how to change the appearance of my signature. But when i go to change it, it says for me to check my HTML. And I have know idea what that means. Do you?--Catalyst 01:53, 24 March 2009 (EDT) But do i just make a random page called User:Catalyst/sig and User:Catalyst/autosig ?--Catalyst 03:21, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

When it asks me what i want to create when i first click on it, what do i say, fan creation, thing, what?--Catalyst 12:00, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

Alright, now i have a sig that i like in User:Catalyst/sig. Now how do i put it in User:Catalyst/autosig ? --Catalyst

Thanks for all the help. Catalyst · Talk · HL 12:48, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

Ok, i just did what you said. But the last time i checked i did have the correct thing in the nickname box. But i hope what i have now is better.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 16:44, 31 March 2009 (EDT)

Fan creations

  • FYI fan creations need consensus among a number of people before they can be moved to the main namespace. I'd encourage you to try to stimulate discussion on the specific talk page for the article and to try to get a few people to weigh in first. (Admin 02:01, 30 March 2009 (EDT))


Hi SacValleyDweller. Me (Irony), Laughing Devil Boy and Gabriel Bishop are writing a fan fic called cockney heroes. At the moment we are on episode 5 (series 1). We are running a contest and the prize is to get a character in the series and to co-write a few episodes. The episodes are here and the contest is here. We have been asking a few of the members of the wiki, and we think that (if you won) you could be a great help, thanks --IronyUTC CH 18:40, 9 April 2009 (EDT) P.S If you are interested just leave a note on my talk page. :) Thanks
