Times Square

Nice work on the Times Square article! One thing: can you go to this page and note the original source for this image? Just a link to the website it comes from is fine. We try very hard to credit the sources of all our images in case there's a question about copyright at some point. Thanks again for your hard work!--Hardvice (talk) 12:40, 25 January 2007 (EST)

Language

Don't worry about the language -- you're doing great! (Et votre Angalis est meilleur (mieux? meilleur?) que mon Français, je croix. :) )--Hardvice (talk) 13:24, 25 January 2007 (EST)

On dit "meilleur" en Français. Mais par contre on dit "je crois" avec un s. Anyway, thanks mate ! --FrenchFlo 13:32, 25 January 2007 (EST)

Guard pic

Hey, FrenchFlo. Thanks for uploading the pic of the guard. The pic has already been uploaded, and we want to avoid having duplicate pics - that way we can make changes on one pic only. Here's the pic you can use: Image:Museum guard.jpg. Thanks! - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:56, 25 January 2007 (EST)

Welcoming new users

Hey, FrenchFlo. I know you do a lot of the welcoming of new members, so I thought I'd give you a heads up on something we talked about last night. We discovered that when you include the welcome template, it throws off the section heading edits. It's best to substitute the template instead. In other words, rather than typing {{welcome}}, you can type {{subst:welcome}} and that should take care of the problem. :) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:23, 20 February 2007 (EST)

  • Let's do this ! Thanks for the heads up Ryan!! --FrenchFlo.(talk).(contribs) 17:36, 22 February 2007 (EST)
  • Thanks for the help (I uploaded a picture!)----Patrick 19:59, 26 March 2007 (EDT)
    • Actually I uploaded the picture using the Special:Upload page that is bottom left of your navigator. But that's cool! We have to help new people to get used to the wiki things. --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 20:01, 26 March 2007 (EDT)

French wiki

  • Hey, FrenchFlo. I dont remember if I ever discussed it with you, but we've had the basics of a French version of Heroes Wiki in place for a long time at http://fr.heroeswiki.com, but unfortunately we don't really have any contributors there who speak French so it's in need of major maintenance. Do you have any interest in doing translations of the English wiki into French or know people who might be interested? I know we get French visitors and it would be great if that site took off to help those who don't know English. It's probably too much work for a single person, but if you know other French Heroes fans then they might be willing to help, too.  :) (Admin 15:58, 25 February 2007 (EST))
    • Yeah I know about the French heroes wiki... but you know.. I use this wiki to improve my english skills and I do really like to read/write/watch things in English. Plus, French community isn't really the best hehe. Finally, I would say that for me translating TV show is ... mhh.. what's the word, altering the spirit of the show. When I see how french watch TV show like Prison Break, it's pretty horrific! So I'm sorry to say that I don't think I will contribute to the French wiki but I'll try to give this one the best I can. This site is sooooo great and it's contributors so cool ;) --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 16:10, 25 February 2007 (EST)
      • No problem. :) I was just thinking about the French wiki earlier and remembered that you spoke French so I figured I'd ask. We appreciate your contributions wherever they are. :) (Admin 16:16, 25 February 2007 (EST))

Picture Deletions

I add a question on this topic, what's about the file in the Special:Unusedimages? Why don't we delete them if they are uploaded for a long time (November 14, 2006 for exemple) and still unused? --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 15:32, 26 February 2007 (EST)

  • Hey, FrenchFlo -- typically, there's no need to delete a picture unless it's poor quality (in which case it should probably be reuploaded) or a duplicate image. If it's just unused, that's okay. We have a lot of space on the server to keep pics around for awhile. If there's one in particular that you think should be deleted, just let us know; however, we tend to not delete pics all that often. Hope that ambiguous explanation helps! :) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:03, 27 February 2007 (EST)

AWI/Company redirects

Hey FF, it might be a moot point since you seem finished, but I just wanted to let you know that when a piped link says AWI, it will redirect to the Company. For instance, you don't need to change every link that say AWI's gun to The Company's gun because they will redirect to the same page anyway. The same goes for AWI's needle and The Company's needle (which actually both redirect to pneumatic syringe anyway...) Of course, you're more than welcome to make whatever changes you want, but I just thought I'd save you some time. :) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:20, 28 February 2007 (EST)

  • Yeah I know Ryan, I'm pretty used to the wiki thing now, but I think I'm a little bit perfectionnist and I assumed that if new users see link to AWI's XXX everywhere, they will use that later instead of the name we now have choosen, The Company. And I had some time to kill... ,) --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 12:18, 28 February 2007 (EST)
    • "'AWI's XXX" -- is that some kinky film they made? :) I know you've come quite a long way in your wiki knowledge ... I just didn't want you to feel like you had to change everything, or to waste your time. I'm glad the links are changed, they're more accurate. I just wanted to make sure you knew you didn't have to change everything. But thanks for doing it! — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:37, 28 February 2007 (EST)

Parasite translation

  • Thanks for translating what the Haitian and Mrs. Petrelli said in the episode. It really added to the understanding of the episode. (I like taking time to thank people for really important contributions!) Disney42 23:39, 6 March 2007 (EST)
    • I just found you French transcription. Thanks so much, FF! (Doesn't it feel good to be a language expert?) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:56, 7 March 2007 (EST)

Steven Lejeune

Is it "Lejeune" or "LeJeune"? I'm seeing both ways online, but mostly "Lejeune". — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:21, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

I think it's Lejeune because "Le" and "jeune" are euh... stick side by side ? It's not "Le Jeune" that could be written as "LeJeune".. I hope you ll understand me ^^ --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 07:24, 13 March 2007 (EDT)
Perfectly. :) They wrote it in all caps on the GN, so I wasn't sure. I just wanted to bring up the issue. Thanks! — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:37, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Galleries

Hey, FF ... if you want to do a gallery, type this:

==Gallery==
<gallery>
Image:Whatever.jpg|caption
Image:Nextwhatever.jpg|next caption
</gallery>
[[Category:Galleries]]

However, I personally don't think any of the soldier pages need galleries right now. I uploaded the dead soldier pics to use on the Vietnam War page. If you want to put one on San Antonio or somewhere else, that's fine, but my opinion is that I just don't think there are enough to make a nice gallery. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:55, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

I know how galleries work that wasn't my question but you also anwsered it "I just don't think there are enough to make a nice gallery". That's the point I meaned, I wanted to know when I should add a gallery, the help page isnt clear about that I said on your talk page. --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 10:59, 23 March 2007 (EDT)
Right, I gotcha. The help page is purposely kind of ambiguous because there's no hard and fast rule. We all have differing opinions on the galleries. For instance, Hardvice has mentioned he thinks there are too many galleries. Personally, I think there shouldn't be a gallery unless there are more than two pics. Others are not very fond of galleries on the character pages, and then there are those that like to see the episode pages full of so many pictures your eyes will bleed. There's not really a rule for when to create a gallery. I gave you my opinion, but that's just me, and I have no more say over it than you do. If you want to create a gallery, go for it; if you think the page doesn't need a gallery, then don't make one. :) And by the way, thanks for all your contributions -- you sure do a lot of work to make this site great. And I'm glad you don't allow language barriers to become an obstacle for you. Bravo. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:08, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

Please help me then

FrenchFlo,

I uploaded the picture
Jessica on broken mirror.jpg
taken from episode 2 at 11:53 but I don't know how to put in the proper place on the table of "Gallery of Appearances" on the page "The Symbol"

Can you assist me? Thanks! RicSantiago

User Infox

Hey Ohmyn0, the power(s) line of the template doesn't work on your page or mine... seems broken ! :) You appear to be editing it that's why I post here. thanks --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 01:42, 26 March 2007 (EDT)

  • There we go ---- Ohmyn0.jpgOhmyn0talk.jpg 02:18, 26 March 2007 (EDT)

Signature

Hey, nice addition to your signature. Now if you could show me how to put 50 stars into that sized space, that'd be great! — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:19, 27 March 2007 (EDT)

  • Hehe, your people should have think about it before creating your flag. Mine did, we thought about wiki signature! French rulz... or not :) --FrenchFlo (talk) ||||||||| 17:24, 27 March 2007 (EDT)

Your Hana Page

Hey, FF. What a great idea you had to make that Hana page!...I figured you wouldn't mind me adding to it. I just wanted to get as many pics for Jason as possible. Merci! — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:21, 29 March 2007 (EDT)

  • No problem Ryan you'r the welcome to change this page since it's not really a personnal one. I wanted to do what you did, classify pictures by drawers etc but I was to tired! Thanks :) -- FrenchFlo (talk)        05:25, 30 March 2007 (EDT)

The Austin thumbnail

Brilliant! I worked on that for an hour yesterday because it kept screwing up the table, but gave up. Now it's beautiful. :) —Soleta 11:10, 30 March 2007 (EDT)

  • Hehe yeah, it's much better now, I hope admins won't revert this edit! I hated the fact that the picture wasn't centred! Things need to be perfect! :) -- FrenchFlo (talk)        11:22, 30 March 2007 (EDT)
    • I won't revert it ... it looks much better. I just wish it were a bit smaller so it didn't throw the table off. Maybe somebody should reupload it as a vertical comparison rather than a horizontal one. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:00, 30 March 2007 (EDT)

Re:Character summaries

  • I understand what you mean. For Sylar's I realize I did go on too much about Isaac, but for Candace's page, I just thought I would write it from the viewpoint of the episode itself (where the viewer wouldn't know until she actually changes that it was her). FlyingMan 16:49, 24 April 2007 (EDT)

Memorial!

Sorry didn't realize you already put a link to the article on the Disambig page! Mattles07 08:30, 2 May 2007 (EDT)

Undo

  • Hey, I noticed you don't write summary when you undo someone's edit. Could you add one next times so that we can understand the reason! :) Thanks. -- FrenchFlo (talk)        15:08, 4 May 2007 (EDT)
    • I'm revert-button happy I guess. I'll start using undo for ones that need explanation. Thanks for the concern.--Bob 15:09, 4 May 2007 (EDT)
