  • The You're number four, Tracy memorable quote for Invisible Thread argument has been taken to far, look [[1]] -- By Danko CH 13:23, 25 June 2009 (EDT)
    • Thanks for the heads up. I've left a message on the person's page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:33, 25 June 2009 (EDT)
      • How do you decide when there are too many quotes, or which quotes are memorable? I thought this was a fan edited site and, as far as I'm concerned, some fans remember some quotes more than others.--JaceJones (talk) 23:11, 25 June 2009 (EDT)
        • I think that, in this case, it is a memorable quote, but I'm not opposed to trimming it. It's not for me or you alone to decide which quotes are kept or tossed. As appropriate, it was brought up on the episode's talk page that the quotes were too numerous and should be trimmed, and that was done. PS: Please sign your username and timestamp when leaving a message on a talk page. I did that for you above.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:28, 25 June 2009 (EDT)

Spammer

I figured I ought to bring this spammer to your attention, spamming something in Chinese I think. With your admin powers you should be able to see that this guy did the same a while back. (evidence here) --SacValleyDweller (talk) 02:40, 29 June 2009 (EDT)

  • Thanks for the heads-up. I deleted Mdjww's page that was in the mainspace (there's a copy in his userspace) and left him a warning on his talk page. I don't see any contributions for Feilsky, and there's no messages on his user talk page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:11, 30 June 2009 (EDT)
    • I think if you undelete Feilsky's pages and contribs, you'll see the offending material. I know it was there. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 15:54, 1 July 2009 (EDT)
      • Maybe if you could tell me the name of one of the pages? I need an article title or part of one to check the deletion log... user search just shows who did the deleting.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:45, 1 July 2009 (EDT)
        • Try Fielsky's user and user talk pages. I think that's where the offending material was found. Mdjww might be Fielsky coming back is what I'm thinking. You might also find this search applicable in this mater --SacValleyDweller (talk) 02:59, 2 July 2009 (EDT)
          • I checked for a user and user talk deletion, but didn't find one. I also searched the past runescape spam deletions, and Fielsky wasn't the author of any of those pages. Sorry.--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:38, 2 July 2009 (EDT)

Cockney Heroes Competition Two

As you may know, a group of Heroes-Wiki-Users are writing a fan fiction called. We are happy to announce a second Cockney Heroes competition. In this competition you will have to create a character and an ability. If you have not been reading Cockney Heroes, a portal of all of the episodes are here and there is a series similar to the graphic novels for Cockney Heroes, here. We would like you to try out as we think that you would be a great inspiration for the team :) Thank You, we hope very much that you will enter If you need to know anything see here, we will try to respond as soon as possible. The competetion page is here--Catalyst · Talk · HL 16:54, 29 June 2009 (EDT)

  • Thanks, but I'm not interested in participating. A reminder: if you want to contact many people at once, it is easier and better to leave a message on the community portal talk page than to add messages to many user talk pages.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:16, 30 June 2009 (EDT)

SpaceBro14/Spacial Adaptivity

This power is in the ability template and I don't know how to get rid of it. See ability development. --Boom D  9,992  21:27, 30 June 2009 (EDT)

  • SpaceBro14 just erased all the content of my userpage (I undid it). I would like to end this but if I respond, I'd just be making it worse. --Boom D  9,992  22:59, 30 June 2009 (EDT)
    • Thanks for the heads up. He also committed other vandalism today in the mainspace so he has been blocked. If he returns and continues to vandalise pages, please let myself or another administrator know.--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:30, 1 July 2009 (EDT)

While you're online...

Could you take a look at Category:Articles for Deletion and clear out some of the fan-made unneeded redirects that are cluttering the place up? And if you have the time, there's lots of userpages that need deleting. Thanks. --Radicell 03:42, 1 July 2009 (EDT)

  • I guess I did about half the articles for deletion. I'll work on some more as I get time or maybe another administrator will work on them some later today.--MiamiVolts (talk) 05:02, 1 July 2009 (EDT)
    • Thanks Miami. --Radicell 05:25, 1 July 2009 (EDT)


Image Link

  • That link says the image was posted originally at the Outpost Gallifrey, copyright BBC. Sorry, GB.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:26, 1 July 2009 (EDT)

Deletion of archived page please

Hi Miami, can you delete my page please? Here is link User talk:Leckie/Archive 1 -- Leckie talk 12:08, 4 July 2009 (EDT)

Umm.... nevermind. Irony did it for me -- Leckie talk 12:09, 4 July 2009 (EDT)

  • So it is okay as-is? Just to be clear, Irony added an archive for that talk page for you. He didn't delete it.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:23, 4 July 2009 (EDT)

image link to page

Is it possible to make an image link to a page? If so, how can I do it?--Catalyst · Talk · HL 21:42, 5 July 2009 (EDT)

  • Yes, and there's a template that does that for you. See template:Imagelink for information. If you don't understand how to use it, let me know and I'll try to help you get the hang of it.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:07, 5 July 2009 (EDT)
    • when you type in the text, how is it supposed to look? Because I'm not seeing anything--Catalyst · Talk · HL 23:40, 5 July 2009 (EDT)
      • The imagelink template takes an image and makes it so it links to an article when clicked instead of the image itself. Check out Category:Season One Episodes for several good examples. If you're still confused after checking the code on that page, let me know.--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:12, 6 July 2009 (EDT)

1000 days

Did you know today is Heroes Wiki's 1000 day anniversary? --Boom D  9,992  23:27, 5 July 2009 (EDT)

  • Is it? I'm more looking forward to the 3 year anniversary myself.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:31, 6 July 2009 (EDT)

Rachel Mills

Hey. I was just editing the characters from The Agent istory and all I have left is Rachel. However, her page is far too long and my computer lags whenever I try to edit it. So, I was wondering if you could either try to shorten her page by either getting rid of unneeded detail or by creating an Agent history, similar to the Season One/Two histories that the main characters have? Thank you. Josh Korolenko.

  • Thanks so much for your help with those summaries. Regarding Rachel, I agree that her character summary is rather long. I think a separate subpage with her history would be okay. I think we can split off her Season 3 history into a separate page. We'll need to do that for the other characters as well. I've gotten the Rachel Mills/Season Three page started. Let me know if you still have trouble editing it.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:21, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

Histories

As you may have seen, I;m blitzing the season three histories at the moment. I'm just checking I can do them now - I saw you created Rachel so I assumed this was the time - this is ok, right? Thanks --IronyUTC CH 10:58, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

  • I mainly did Rachel's since her page was so long it was hard to edit. However, it's mid-summer now so I guess it's the right time.--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:14, 7 July 2009 (EDT)

Sylar

Hey i noticed than someone messed up the sylar page really bad. instead of talking about the abilities he had, it just says flight. someone should change it immediately!--I.absorb.abilities (talk) 14:17, 8 July 2009 (EDT)

  • It appears that you're the only one who edited the page. You removed the closing curly bracket (}) from the call to Template:Sylaracquired when you added flight directly to the page instead of the template. Also, please note that there was a comment that asked for people to not add flight as it is speculative (he could be using TK and not Nathan's ability to fly). PS: I undid your edits so the abilities should again be listed.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:28, 8 July 2009 (EDT)

Noah's pics

A possible pic for Claire
.
A possible pic for Hiro
.

Hey. I noticed while I was doing Noah's season three summary that he is the only character that has pictures on his actual bio (season summaries). I think this is kind of strange and was wondering if we could do this for every main character. The pictures could show key moments in their historys. I have included possible pictures as examples for Hiro and Claire. I just feel that if Noah has pictures, other central characters should have them too. :) Josh Korolenko.

  • That picture probably shouldn't be there. I'm not opposed to it for a single picture, but for it to be a general policy you should discuss it first on the community portal talk page. For multiple pictures on other articles, the standard practice is to make a gallery.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:17, 11 July 2009 (EDT)

Categories

Unused categories has some that can be deleted. --Boom D  9,992  18:06, 12 July 2009 (EDT)

Sorry to be a bother

Could you please tell me how to make a navbar for characters and abilities, like the one all heroes characters/abilities/items/place/groups etc, have? I would like to use it for the fan created series my bro and I made. Chronicles. Thank you Miama, :) AJ

  • Basically, you make an article called "User:AgentJordan/Navbar" or similar and edit it to contain the links that you want. Then, you add it using template inclusion to each of your articles by adding "{{User:AgentJordan/Navbar}}" at the bottom of each page. If you have trouble or are confused, let me know.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:59, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

Crew portals and navbars

Hi Miami, as I have been creating crew pages recently I noticed some inconsistencies between different portals and navbars. I noticed some portals and navbars included the persons role in Heroes, here for example, whereas others did not include this information, here for example. I do think for portals such as other roles and doubled up portals such as hair and makeup should have the inclusion of the job role but navbars are cluttered with this information and I feel it is unnecessary. What I wanted to know is can I change this or should I bring this up on the community portal? Thanks for your time --posted by Laughingdevilboy Talk 17:06, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

  • I think the job titles were left off some the portals and navs, like effects, because some were rather long and cluttered them up. If you want to add the job titles to other portals and navs, you could discuss it on the individual portal's talk page. I think the main thing we have been keeping to is that the portal and its nav should be arranged similarly. If the portal has job titles, the nav should too; or vice versa.--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:20, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

As you've probably seen

I've created a navbar for the Chronicles abilities, thank you for your help with that. I will be creating one for all my characters and would like to know if there is a way to edit them without them going to recent changes, because last time, as you have probably seen, my navbar adding clogged up a lot of room. Any words of advice? :{ AJ

  • When making an edit, you can click the 'Show preview' button instead of the 'Save page' button. Previews are not saved, so they don't show up in recent changes. However, they do allow you to see what your page will look like.--MiamiVolts (talk) 05:36, 18 July 2009 (EDT)

Likeness Of?

I was just wondering for some characters, like Sparrow, Abigail, Lee and other characters that have been drawn/based on the likeness of real people, we could add that to their page instead of just their notes, like mention it instead of "PORTRAYED BY:", put something like (for Sparrow as an example), "LIKENESS OF: Kat Purgal" or "BASED AFTER: Kat Purgal", something along the lines of this, any thoughts on the matter? AJ

  • I think the notes/trivia is the correct place for that. I'm not certain the sidebar is the right place for that info. Perhaps you could get more input on the community portal.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:08, 18 July 2009 (EDT)

Hi

Hi Miami, I have asked Ryan this, but he is too busy to help me and wondered if you could help. Is there anyway you can confirm that 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. Also can you confirm if this is for Angela Gurule and that this is for Dave Snyder. Thanks in advance also could you tell me on my talk page so I can add the credits as soon as you confirm :) If you cannot confirm these I will have to search the internet :) --posted by Laughingdevilboy Talk 10:59, 20 July 2009 (EDT)

  • They look like they could be right, but as none of them list Heroes in the credits, I'm not sure. I would recommend searching the internet for their webpages if you can.--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:51, 20 July 2009 (EDT)

Cockney Heroes Deletion

I have removed all links to the pages nominated for deletion, some still have dpl created links and the current events page linking to them. --posted by Laughingdevilboy Talk 09:17, 28 July 2009 (EDT)

  • Thanks, LDB. I just finished deleting those Cockney Heroes pages.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:14, 28 July 2009 (EDT)
