Hey

Hey, sorry Miami. I was trying to make a spoiler page for weather control but mistakenly move talk:weathercontrol there instead, can you please delete Spoiler:Weather Control (which has nothing in it) and move "Weather control" there. Thanks (sorry about that) --IronyUTC CH 02:52, 1 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Done...--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:02, 1 April 2009 (EDT)
    • Thanks for that :) --IronyUTC CH 03:00, 1 April 2009 (EDT)
    • No problem. :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:02, 1 April 2009 (EDT)

April Fools' Day

So, I noticed you cracked down on Action Figure's April Fools' Day edits. If you hadn't noticed, I've been playing around with Spoiler:Heroes a little. I was planning on removing these tomorrow, but if you think it's inappropriate, I'm happy to take them down now. -- Tristan0709 talk 03:48, 1 April 2009 (EDT)

  • They are very inappropriate. Purposely adding fake information to articles here is vandalism no matter what day it is. (Admin 09:16, 1 April 2009 (EDT))
    • Yes it was innapropriate but he wasnt doing it on perpose or as vandilism,cmon admin you do have some holiday spirit.Im sure he didnt mean it in a nasty or rude way :) Gabriel Bishop 10:16, 1 April 2009 (EDT)
      • Purposely inserting false information is vandalism. April Fools is not a holiday, it's a silly tradition among people showing a lack of maturity. Do not do it here or you will be blocked, plain and simple. (Admin 10:40, 1 April 2009 (EDT))
        • It should also be noted that not everybody celebrates April Fools' Day. We have many users from other countries where April Fools' Day is not celebrated, and it's very confusing and degrading if the site prints false and misleading information that others don't "get". It's like being on the outside of an inside joke, and that's just not cool. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:15, 1 April 2009 (EDT)
          • Admin and Ryan are correct, but I think it should also be noted that our site is translated into nine other languages right now, so adding false information and pages can hurt more than you realize because the information could be propagated to the nine other sites. Also, I noted on Action Figure's user talk page that what he did was more than just immature; I said it was in bad taste. Then, he went on to do what I can only describe as vandalizing a page, so I agree with the decision to temp. block him.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:00, 1 April 2009 (EDT)
            • Just so you know, my apology at User talk:Admin is directed at you and other administrators/patrollers as well. -- Tristan0709 talk 22:48, 1 April 2009 (EDT)
              • Thanks, apology accepted (I'm speaking for myself only, of course. :)).--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:50, 1 April 2009 (EDT)
                • Thankyou. Feels strange having gone from a new patroller to feeling like a spammer. -- Tristan0709 talk 22:59, 1 April 2009 (EDT)
                  • Eh, don't feel like a spammer, Tristan. You're a good guy who tried to play an innocent joke. The important thing is how you handled it afterwards. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:08, 2 April 2009 (EDT)
                    • Exactly. The difference between what you did and how you responded and what Action Figure did and how he responded was night and day. :) He vandalized the main page and even tried to forge a message from me... and then brushed off the incident as if he didn't care. You took a much more responsible position. (Admin 01:13, 2 April 2009 (EDT))

MQ

Hey miami someone is editing peter's page and adding mq's to the page.isnt there a page for mq's ? Gabriel Bishop 13:06, 3 April 2009 (EDT)

thanks for the help!

Hey thanks again for helping me with my template, it's working great now. :) --Piemanmoo 13:43, 7 April 2009 (EDT)

Phew!

Thanks for banning that guy, he was giving me some trouble! --Crazylicious 17:57, 7 April 2009 (EDT)

  • And thanks for your help in undoing the vandalism. If you spot another vandal, please let us administrators know as well so we can take care of the situation.--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:58, 7 April 2009 (EDT)
    • Yeah, no problem. I was going to post on Ryan's talk page, but I was busy undoing all the edits, and making sure they weren't making any more, so the multitasking was difficult. Will do in the future. --Crazylicious 18:03, 7 April 2009 (EDT)
      • That's okay to undo it, but since we can always check through the vandal's contributions to see what needs undoing, the priority should be to get the user blocked. If for some reason you can't notify an administrator on the wiki itself, you can e-mail one of us. Thanks again.--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:13, 7 April 2009 (EDT)

Hey Miami

Hey miami Me User:Irony and User:Laughingdevilboy have made our series could you read the first three eps and enter the competition Thanks.Btw its here User talk:Gabriel Bishop/Cockney Heroes Gabriel Bishop 17:16, 9 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Sorry, I haven't read Cockney Heroes...--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:54, 9 April 2009 (EDT)

Possible impersonation

Someone just made an account with my username, removing the space from it, please check it. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 21:50, 9 April 2009 (EDT)

  • I'll keep an eye on it; thanks. I asked if he/she would consider using another username to avoid confusion.--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:59, 9 April 2009 (EDT)
  • Hey, don't worry Intuitive Empath im honestly not trying to impersonate you. It was an honest mistake. Sorry! If you check my Nickname, i wanted my username to be something like that but for some reason it was blacklisted. --Intuitive Empathic Absorbtion 22:05, 9 April 2009 (EDT)
  • Chill, I've been victim of impersonation and vandalism in the past, both here and in other wikis, so when someone with a name too similar to mine shows up, I put the shields up. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 22:06, 9 April 2009 (EDT)
  • Don't worry about it you are safe from me impersonationg you. It will be extremely confusing for other users though, so ill go about getting it changed to what i originally wanted. --Intuitive Empathic Absorbtion 22:10, 9 April 2009 (EDT)

Deletion

2 things i want to ask if its ok. 1: Why was my Fan Power page for Techno-Phasing deleted i would really like to know 2: How did you become an administrator. Timing is funny as i live in the UK Obelisk52 22:07, 9 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Sorry, I didn't see this message until now. I think I already answered about your article, but just in case you should know that your fan power and character pages need to stay in your userspace. That means you need to use 'User:Obelisk52/<title>' instead of just '<title>' for each article's name. Regarding being an administrator, I was asked if I would like be one by Admin and the other administrators. It is not something you can ask to become.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:10, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

Science behind abilities

Are you going to update it? It's been a while. I enjoy that page! BoomerDay 11:45, 10 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Thanks, nice to have some feedback. I'll try to do an update this weekend.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:15, 10 April 2009 (EDT)

Admin has totally ignored me

Hey. After the message you sent me yesterday about having a similar username, i sent a name change request to the admin and they have seemed to totally ignore me. They have replied to the later post you made on there page but not mine. Do you know what the deal is? --Intuitive Empathic Absorber 12:06, 10 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Not sure, he may just be busy. I think it's something he needs to do on the server side. You could also send him an e-mail if you think he missed your message. Use "admin -at- heroeswiki.com".--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:18, 10 April 2009 (EDT)
  • I don't reply to messages in the order I get them, I reply to them based on how much time I have and how much time they take to answer/fulfill. (Admin 12:29, 10 April 2009 (EDT))

Deletion (II)

would you be able to delete my fan power page for User:Obelisk52/Possibility Absorption? I am going to create a new one and would like my old one deleted thanks in advance Obelisk52 17:30, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Ok, it's been deleted.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:10, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
    • I know i have asked you for one deletion already today but can u delete my new one Obelisk52/Ability Randomization please as i have not added the User:Obelisk52 at the top of the page or is it possible for u to be able to change it to have the User:Obelisk52 at the top please Obelisk52 18:30, 11 April 2009 (EDT)
      • I moved your article to User:Obelisk52/Ability Randomization for you. However, if you make a mistake again, you can move articles for yourself. Just click the "Move this page" link on the sidebar when you are viewing the page you want to move. Then enter into the form the new name for the article.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:34, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

congrats

hey do you know that guy Volts, rachel's freind from istory? well he's called after you XD, i just felt telling you in case you didn't know its in the most recent interview of istory--Manwithnoname 13:10, 12 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Yes, I know... see here. Thanks for the thought, though. :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:40, 12 April 2009 (EDT)

Cockney Heroes

Hi there Miami, I have two questions for you :) 1) Me, Gabriel Bishop and Irony were wondering if we were allowed to have a category for cockney heroes. As you can see here, another fan fic made by PinkKeith has a category. This category only has five pages, ours has considerably more, as you can see here, which is a list of all of our pages. The number of these are rapidly growing and with the competition we have already got at least another 15 more. 2) Is it possible to move all our pages to either Cockney Heroes/ or User:Cockney Heroes/ from Gabriels user space, as this would include all of us in Cockney Heroes. It would be a great help, thanks. --posted by Laughingdevilboy Talk 13:11, 13 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Hi Laughingdevilboy. I have no idea what Cockney Heroes is, but as far as I know it isn't connected to the main part of the show. From what I've read, you're running some sort of contest in the userpages, though I have not read anywhere where you have gotten permission to do so. I think you should be discussing this at Heroes Wiki talk:Community Portal, so more people can answer. It's not really my call. You might want to also discuss this with Admin. He might consider making for you a separate wiki at cockney.heroeswiki.com that shares the images source that this wiki has, if that would be easier.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:35, 13 April 2009 (EDT)
    • Cockney heroes is a fanfic here at heroes wiki and RGS knows about the contest and hasn't mentioned we needed permission. Thanks for your quick reply, I will talk it over with Irony and Gabriel Bishop to see where to go next. Thanks again :) -posted by Laughingdevilboy

Talk 13:43, 13 April 2009 (EDT)

      • I guess you don't need permission to do what you want in your userpages, but organizing it with a category kind of makes it more like an official contest--at least that's how I see it. In any case, my opinion (since you asked) is that whether you need the permission to do so or not, it would be considerate to discuss projects like this with the community before embarking on them.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:31, 13 April 2009 (EDT)
      • Hi Miami, I was talking to LDB and he wasn't sure if you knew what we meant. Cockney Heroes is a fan fiction which User:Gabriel Bishop, LDB and I are writing. We would like to put our pages in a category so that we can keep track of them all. If we were not allowed to do this (becasue it conflicted with the rules of the wiki) we were wondering if we could move all the pages to User:Cockney Heroes namespace so that it showed we were all involved, not GB and it would be easier to know where the pages were --IronyUTC CH 14:37, 13 April 2009 (EDT)
        • Is it just you three who are participating? It appears as though GB is soliciting a number of other users to participate, including me (See the Hey Miami thread above). Like I said, a category might be okay, but it would need to be addressed to the community for approval. If you want to create a shared user account for the project, that's something you need to address with Admin. He is responsible for allowing/denying multiple accounts. You could also create a user template that you put at the bottom of your project pages and have it use DPL to list of the pages that use it (no category would be required, but the template would need to exist in one of your userspaces).--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:47, 13 April 2009 (EDT)
          • Irony and Laughingdevilboy did not discuss this with me Miami and I personally dont mind it being in namespace.Also I shall be asking Admin about The competition on his talk page :) Also miami please could you read CH and see what you think thanks GB Gabriel Bishop 14:52, 13 April 2009 (EDT)

Talk 15:03, 13 April 2009 (EDT)

                • I see four episodes listed, but isn't it supposed to be based on some novel???--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:08, 13 April 2009 (EDT)
              • No its a fanfic that we're writing --IronyUTC CH 15:13, 13 April 2009 (EDT)
                • Ah, GB's comments mentioned something about there being a novel. That's why I was confused. Thanks for clarifying.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:15, 13 April 2009 (EDT)
  • I checked some of it out. It's rather difficult to get through. It seems that you guys are putting yourselves in a storyline similar to the what happens on the show, though. When I have some more time, I'll see if I can check though it some more but it's not really something I'm interested in contributing to atm (not that I have the time to do so, either).--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:22, 13 April 2009 (EDT)

Just To Say

I throughly enjoyed our science wars while they lasted. Thanks :) --IronyUTC CH 20:13, 15 April 2009 (EDT)

EpisodesCreated

Hey Miami. When you get a second, could you look at Template:EpisodesCreated? It's messing up Aron Eli Coleite's name whenever it has to be piped. The issue is not happening with Template:NovelsCreated as far as I can tell. Thanks! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:20, 15 April 2009 (EDT)

  • I'm looking at Aron Coleite's page and don't see the problem. What am I missing? Can you link an example from the sandbox for me, please?--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:45, 15 April 2009 (EDT)
    • I had fixed the issue by "unpiping" Aron's name on The Eclipse, Part 1. I just undid it so Aron's page should be messed up now. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:10, 16 April 2009 (EDT)
      • I had to remove the pipe again. Fixing the issue is not a good idea because of the limits on template calls. The problem with Aron's listing is for that episode, Aron is not the only writer. That means the code has to parse both writers so it doesn't do a check for multiple pipes. If I add an extra call to the template to split the extra pipe, additional pages would no longer display correctly. I could add the code just into Aron's page directly, but I think that would be overkill. If it's important enough, we can remove the DPL from Aron's page and update that section manually.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:35, 16 April 2009 (EDT)
        • No, I think we're fine leaving out his middle name. Thanks, Miami! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:14, 16 April 2009 (EDT)

Thanks

Thanks for that comment for some reason for my laptop it will not load correctly and give me a signture or and thing on that tab bar so i had to look for EVERY thing i had commented on and put that on but i missed some i guess thanks--Skyeatsout (talk) 02:04, 18 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Sadly, you still did not add your signature, not even for this comment where you note it... I just added it for you here. If you cannot see the button, just type --~~~~ at the end of your comments, thanks.--MiamiVolts (talk) 08:11, 18 April 2009 (EDT)

Just wanted to say

I have enjoyed our battles and discussions over the recent influx of IStory abilities :) I would also like to say great work with all the IStory stuff you seem to do all of yourself. If you ever need a hand just ask. --posted by Laughingdevilboy Talk 17:24, 18 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Thanks... and I'll take you up on your offer right away... see the checklist at Talk:The Agent/Week 10 and get started. There are a lot of character summaries to do this time and I'll gladly take the help. It shouldn't just be me doing all the summaries all the time, anyways. :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:30, 18 April 2009 (EDT)
    • Thanks for helping with the iStory summaries for chapter 10 of The Agent. I should point out, though, that they shouldn't be verbatim copies of the Exodus graphic novel summaries even though they cover some of the same content. The iStory included additional information such as the fight between Rachel and the Building 26 agents before Danko showed her Jason's video. I think that's info. that shouldn't be left out, like it was, so I'm adding it to the summaries.
      • Sorry about that, I haven't really produced summaries before so it was a learning curve, I was planning on going back and adding anything I missed, but got sidetracked with coursework. In future I will try to spend more time doing them :) Thanks for the advice though --posted by Laughingdevilboy

Talk 13:15, 20 April 2009 (EDT)

        • That's okay. Just telling you so you know for the future. In such cases, where you can't add everything, you should leave the sectstub so someone else can go back and finish up. Thanks again.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:22, 20 April 2009 (EDT)

Tom Inkel

I have contact information for Tom Inkel and told him I'd send him some follow up questions. They don't necessarily need to go into interview:iStory, but who knows...Anyway, if you have any questions you'd like me to ask him, shoot them my way. One of the first I'll ask is who portrays Brian. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:06, 25 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Well, I've a number of questions about the circus folk in The Agent, but I think it would be better to wait until after The Agent is finished to send in those questions. Did Tom say he is planning to disappear right after the finale?--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:26, 25 April 2009 (EDT)
    • Disappear? What do you mean? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:52, 25 April 2009 (EDT)
      • I meant if you knew if he had any plans to go on vacation such that he can't be reached.--MiamiVolts (talk) 05:01, 25 April 2009 (EDT)

Tonight's HI

Hey, is it too late for you to receive tonight's Heroes Interactive? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:59, 27 April 2009 (EDT)

  • Since you asked, I just sent a request to participate in the Pacific show, but I haven't gotten a response. Are you having trouble?--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:20, 27 April 2009 (EDT)
    • Ok, I just got four replies... I guess I'll be grabbing it tonight.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:36, 27 April 2009 (EDT)
      • I've got a double whammy--my phone was acting funny, so I'm not sure I got all the messages...and my wife ended up not being able to watch Heroes tonight, so neither did I. I'll watch tomorrow, but in the meantime, I'm trying really hard to avoid learning plot details. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:53, 27 April 2009 (EDT)
        • Oh, that's going to be very hard... I'll try not to tell you then that blah blah and blah *censored* blah happened. ;) I'll post here if I'm receiving the messages in a couple minutes.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:58, 27 April 2009 (EDT)
          • Ok, I'm getting the messages.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:19, 28 April 2009 (EDT)
