Vandals

  • MV do you reckon this user is the same one you blocked earlier for a few hours as he has just came on to HW and started vandalising?-- By Danko CH 15:59, 14 August 2009 (EDT)
    • I thought the same thing. Both of them seem to be adding Barbara to pages.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 16:02, 14 August 2009 (EDT)
      • Yeah it wasn't long after vandal no.1's block ended this guy created an account, suspicous.-- By Danko CH 16:03, 14 August 2009 (EDT)
        • He is still going. This is the same person.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 16:12, 14 August 2009 (EDT)
  • Sorry, guys, I can't tell if both users belong to the same person. I agree the fact that the Barbara thing was done again is telling, but it's not concrete proof. In any case, he/she had added more false info. after a warning so a block was justified, which I've done.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:36, 14 August 2009 (EDT)
    • Problem solved and another vandal blocked, well done MV-- By Danko CH 16:33, 14 August 2009 (EDT)
      • I think it is the same person. A new user, Sylar12 just made a character call Marius bazadragis. the previous vandal was named Mariusb. And on Sylar12's user page, alias = Syral12. other user, Syral11. Coincidence?--Catalyst · Talk · HL 13:59, 16 August 2009 (EDT)
      • Catalyst, that could be a coincidence. Users can make mistakes. We shouldn't jump to conclusions. --Boom D  9,992  15:48, 16 August 2009 (EDT)
        • Your right, I will keep that in mind. Just seems a bit suspicious. But I won't jump.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 15:53, 16 August 2009 (EDT)
            • I see you've just blocked another, this spammer could just be switching IP addresses and creating new profiles from which he vandalises HW, which is pretty hard to prevent, so what can we do?-- By Danko CH 10:45, 31 August 2009 (EDT)
              • I took a minor step that will slow it down a little. I have other plans in store for dealing with it, too. (Admin 10:59, 31 August 2009 (EDT))
                • The Md'j guy is back Miami,-- By Danko CH 04:16, 1 September 2009 (EDT)

Bad User?

Bad user name, might mean vandal. Just a heads up.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 13:07, 30 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Ok, thanks for the heads-up. Let me or another administrator know if see he/she does something wrong.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:23, 30 August 2009 (EDT)
    • That user moved sylar ro Gabriel "Sylar" Gray and redirected Takezo Kensei to Adam Monroe.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 17:37, 30 August 2009 (EDT)
      • It's an anagram for TheEvilNoob! --Boom D  9,992  17:50, 30 August 2009 (EDT)
        • Huh, clever. Anyways, Ryan took care of it; he's blocked now.--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:26, 30 August 2009 (EDT)
          • He/she did do something "ok"...he/she fixed a grammar mistake in Dual...--Iheartheroes 18:28, 30 August 2009 (EDT)
            • Another anagram for TheEvilNoob. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 14:51, 31 August 2009 (EDT)
              • Thanks, it's likely him. I'll be tracking his contributions.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:36, 31 August 2009 (EDT)
              • Admin's taken care of him. Thanks, Admin!--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:51, 31 August 2009 (EDT)
                • No problem. At least he enjoys coming here to try to antagonize people, even if it's not really annoying anyone. :) Guess Heroes Wiki has something to offer even the non-fans! ;) (Admin 15:54, 31 August 2009 (EDT))
                  • Not sure this is an acceptable username. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 13:12, 3 September 2009 (EDT)
                    • Thanks, I took care of it. It made me smile. :) (Admin 14:20, 3 September 2009 (EDT))
                      • More to go: User:Ho boil event, User:Boomerisaprettysmartman, User:Catalystnotquite, User:Orgasm, User:NiceUsernameFilters, User:Lol Orgasm, User:AdmanLicksNuts, User:NlGGAADMlN. Admin might want to use checkuser, my guess is that it's all from the same IP. Most likely it's TEN bored. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 20:31, 10 September 2009 (EDT)
                        • Looks like Admin already took care of them. Thanks Admin!--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:48, 10 September 2009 (EDT)

Hi Miami

I have added you here if thats alright, if it is then please insert a pic if not you can remove yourself thanks.-- By Danko CH 08:50, 2 September 2009 (EDT)

  • Cool pic, thanks-- By Danko CH 15:25, 2 September 2009 (EDT)

Account

  • I don't know... that last account your blocked looks like it might be legit. haha. I'm getting a kick out of all the attention. :) (Admin 18:59, 4 September 2009 (EDT))
    • Yes, I guess we are a bit merrier for it. :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:11, 4 September 2009 (EDT)

Help me?

This is Ratclaws, and i am having a small problem logging in. I had a power outage at my house, and it logged me out of Heroeswiki, and when i went to log back on, it kept saying my password was incorrect. I had a temporary one sent, and logged on with it, and when it asked me to put in a new password i did that, but then it took me to a page that said log-in, or something like that, with a pink box that said "no form". After about 10 min. of this, i had enough, and made a new account, this one, to see if someone could help, thanks.

I didn't know where else to put this, you were the last admin active--Helpratclaws 18:59, 21 September 2009 (EDT)

  • Try getting a new password again if you forgot it. If you enter the wrong password the first time, you'll get a box with a word in script form that you have to type in to prove you are a human and not trying to crack a password. If you don't see that box, you might have scripting turned off. That's all I can think of. You might also ask Admin if you still have trouble. Hope that helps.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:15, 21 September 2009 (EDT)

Hey

Hey, Volts, did you receive my email?--Citizen 23:00, 21 September 2009 (EDT)

  • Sorry, haven't checked e-mail since before the premiere. I'll check it and reply to you shortly.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:04, 21 September 2009 (EDT)

Heroes Survival

Hey, I'm the 'owner' of Harvey, and I wanted to know how to audition or be accepted or whatever into your faction. I was kinda offering myself on a first come, first served basis, and StreetLife sounds like the kind of thing Harvey would do. The only thing I'm hesitant about is the lack of "protecting ourselves" as a major goal, but I doubt I'm going to find a better match, and it's a rather major faction. Honestly, I'm flattered. Anyway, you can either post something on my talk page or send me a personal message via 9th Wonders (same username, and I have a recent post in "introduce yourself", if that helps). If you feel that this information needs to remain completely off the books, you can email me at uncanny474 -at- gmail.com. I have a teensy bit of RPing experience from the Star Wars TOR site (they were kind of snobbish, so I quit almost immedietly; not a problem I expect from someone connected with Heroes Wiki--y'all seem to be a great bunch), and I have extensive storytelling experience. If there's anything else you need to know, don't hesitate to contact me.--Uncanny474 19:13, 24 September 2009 (EDT)

  • I posted my reply on your talk page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:31, 24 September 2009 (EDT)
    • I figured it was easy, but I didn't want to seem foreward or anything by just randomly clicking buttons. I wanted to make sure I would be accepted at the earliest possible opportunity.--Uncanny474 00:05, 25 September 2009 (EDT)

DPL Query

Hi, searching through the internet I've found you are quite an expert on DPL, am I right?

I'm the owner for an architecture wiki (www.wikiarquitectura.com) and I'm having some trouble with that extension… I was wondering if you could take a quick look at my issue, I’m sure it’s pretty simple but it’s driving me crazy… so here is the thing:

I want to use the DPL extension to show ads on my wiki. The query that I need should show all the ads listed on a specific category, one by one and randomly. I already got it to do that with the following query:

DPL

category=AdFootOn

mode=userformat

includepage=*

randomcount=1

/DPL

As you can see at the following link: http://es.wikiarquitectura.com/index.php?title=Sandbox

So the problem is this query also renders the category the Ad its showing belongs to, in this case Category:AdFoot On, and there for when I pace it on a real article that article becomes part of the ads category and the query start showing that article as an ad at the end of other articles. You can see the loop here…

Any ideas? Thank you very much for your time!

--Hoiol 17:42, 4 October 2009 (EDT)(guillermo =at= wikiarquitectura.com)

  • Hi, Hoiol. I think you should be able to simply strip out the category you don't want using a regular expression. I've done similar things here at HeroesWiki. However, I'll check when I have some more time later today just to be sure and send you an e-mail.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:43, 5 October 2009 (EDT)

Wellness messages

Are you receiving wellness messages? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:05, 7 October 2009 (EDT)

  • Yes, I am now. Thanks a bunch for helping to get that fixed! :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:45, 8 October 2009 (EDT)

I hate to be the one to point it out but...

that picture you use for EM interference just reminds me of a vagina and the doctor at the end of the tunnel. I apologise if that's all you see it as now but I just had to point it out just in case you want to change it. --mc_hammark 17:46, 16 October 2009 (EDT)

  • Um, I hadn't thought about it that way... I'll work on a version with arms outstretched when I get the chance tomorrow. Hopefully, that will be better. Thanks for the heads-up.--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:22, 16 October 2009 (EDT)
    • Sorry, didn't have a chance to work on it this weekend. Hopefully, I'll get more time tomorrow morning.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:11, 19 October 2009 (EDT)
    • Ok, I've changed it... is it better, now?--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:52, 19 October 2009 (EDT)
      • I can't see a difference. --mc_hammark 17:15, 19 October 2009 (EDT)
        • I can.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 17:16, 19 October 2009 (EDT)
          • When I look at the file itself i can't see the new file but when I click on the pages which uses this image, in the other page of the user's friends, I can see the difference, but not on this page. Yet. --mc_hammark 17:18, 19 October 2009 (EDT)
            • That's probably due to the cache in your browser. You should try clearing out your browser's file cache. That should help.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:44, 19 October 2009 (EDT)

Hey ya!

Hey, Volts! Um...I'm here to thank you for not kicking 'Angelus' out of the faction when he dropped to 70% a few days ago. I bumped him back up as soon as possible to like 90% and I plan on keeping it that way. :) --Kyle Stevens 20:35, 24 October 2009 (EDT)

  • No problem, Kyle. You've told me you have trouble connecting during the week, so I keep that in mind.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:32, 5 November 2009 (EST)

TAMi Ratings

Out of interest, where do you get the information for the TAMi ratings? - Jenx222 | U / T / C 19:21, 5 November 2009 (EST)

  • Never mind, I've seen it now, lol - Jenx222 | U / T / C 19:27, 5 November 2009 (EST)
    • Well, just in case, it's explained in the TAMi article below the data:

      TAMi is published weekly in PDF format in the NBC Entertainment Spotlight section of the NBC Universal Media Village website. To access the TAMi, go to "Network/Programs", then select "NBC Entertainment". The main flash window that automatically scrolls ad images for NBC's television programs has multiple pages. On the last page of the flash window is the Spotlight section with the logo for TAMi in one of the panels. There is nothing that says "Spotlight" on that page, but if you select the panel with the TAMi logo, you should be able to click a link to download a PDF file containing the latest weekly results for TAMi (the TAMi logo image itself is a link).

      Right now, the flash TAMi spot reads as being for 'October 27, 2009', but if you click the link you get the 'November 3, 2009' TAMi.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:30, 5 November 2009 (EST)


  • Ye, just downloaded it, thanks :) - Jenx222 | U / T / C 19:33, 5 November 2009 (EST)

Help:Consensus checks

I see were in need of a help page for consensus checks, would you mind if I started working on it or should I leave it for an Admin? - Jenx222 | U / T / C 19:50, 5 November 2009 (EST)

  • Thanks for your interest! If you think we are missing some help, I recommend you write a draft in your namespace and then post about it on the related help talk page and/or on Heroes Wiki talk:Administrator Portal. Regarding establishing a consensus, we have Help:Naming conventions which you might want to review.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:43, 5 November 2009 (EST)
    • It's not that were necessarily missing help, it's just were in need of some consistent standards and an article which can be used as a reference when consensuses are being created. I'll draw up a page in my name space to see what I can come up with. - Jenx222 | U / T / C 06:56, 6 November 2009 (EST)

Chadra Suresh Spoilers on Hulu

Don't know if Heroes Wiki was aware, but hulu has four "web exclusive" videos up. I'm guessing NBC.com has the same viedos up aswell. They feature young Chandra Suresh discussing various aspects of the "Heroes" particularly a pregnant woman who's unborn child seems to be controlling seismic activity (Samuel?) It's pretty clear these are spoilers as they went up Nov. 3rd. Couldn't find anything about the videos on Heroes Wiki, so I thought I'd give you guys a heads up. -Hero

The Crow

Hi. At May i uploaded some pictures and i tried to talk about a movie named The Crow. You can watch movie at YouTube. There ara a lot of similar thing between it and Heroes. For example - Hiro's teleport sound was using at second movie(1996) Crow movies based on people who returned for revenge from other world and they all got power - They have rapid cell regeneration power - They can see past when they touched something - At second movie there is a girl named Sarah and she draw her future(her death) - Also Sarah saw future in her dream Ernie Hudson acted at The Crow as a police officer and he acted a police officer in Heroes. And in The Crow when Eric(hero of movie) met him he took his cigarette and says "You shouldn't smoke this, it will kill you." and at Into Asylum Sylar says it to Danko. Also there is a serie named "The Crow : Stairway to Heaven"

I can't create a page and write all things cause as you see my english is not so good. I'm just saying this and i hope somebody would watch movie and create a page.--Nbcheroes (talk) 18:42, 27 November 2009 (EST)

  • Thanks for the suggestion. It may make good article, but I have not seen the film. I made reply to you on your talk page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:39, 27 November 2009 (EST)
