Grounded

  • FYI I added Mark Sable's "Grounded" and "Hazed" into the Amazon product rotation. (Admin 00:19, 1 June 2008 (EDT))
    • Oh, cool, I'll let him know. Thanks--what a great idea! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:38, 1 June 2008 (EDT)
      • Is that easy to do? I sent Ryan by e-mail the transcription of the last part of the R.D. Hall interview, so I've a few ideas about products to add for that interview.--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:36, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Delete it

yes i would like you to delete it, thanks

It's time!

Just to let everybody know that my wife's water broke, so we're heading to the hospital in a little bit...and I'll probably be in and out of commission over the next week or so. See ya! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:11, 1 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Congrats, Ryan! Drive safely!--MiamiVolts (talk) 17:41, 1 June 2008 (EDT)
    • Indeed *hopes Mrs. Stewart's time in labor is short and Oscar comes out OK* --SacValleyDweller (talk) 17:49, 1 June 2008 (EDT)
      • Aw, my glass of water broke. Now it's all over my desk. (good luck) --DocM 17:52, 1 June 2008 (EDT)
        • Thanks, guys! We're leaving for the hospital in about 10 minutes, now that the kids are all safe and settled at the sitter's. We're excited, but still pretty calm and collected. Thanks for the good wishes! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:28, 1 June 2008 (EDT)
      • Congrats and good luck buddy.--Bob (talk) 19:32, 1 June 2008 (EDT)
  • Oscar was born early this morning at 3:26. 6 pounds 11 ounces, 19 inches long. 4 weeks early. Mom is doing well, Oscar is in the NICU having a hard time breathing. He'll be fine soon. Thanks y'all! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:39, 2 June 2008 (EDT)
    • 26 is my lucky number, so you should rename Oscar "DocM". --DocM 14:16, 2 June 2008 (EDT)
      • Congrats man on the new born!!! hope he is as cool and into Heroes as his dad. Shoyru1177

Hi

Hi Ryan

My name is Matej and I run Heroes fansite called Heroes Television ( http://www.heroestelevision.com/ )

Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi

Also, if you have any Heroes scoop/news that you think it might be something I could blog about, fell free to contact me - I will credit you.


Cheers!

  • Hey, Matej! Love your site! ... I've contacted you in the past through the contact form on your site, but I had trouble accessing it yesterday--it seemed to be down, or the link I had used in the past was dead. In any case, it would be much easier for me to contact you directly. Feel free to email me your information, and I'll keep you updated on any news I might have. My address is ryangibsonstewart at heroeswiki dot com.

    In the meantime, I recently interviewed Mark Sable about his work as a graphic novel writer with Heroes, especially his work on his latest novel set Faces. The interview can be found at this link: http://heroeswiki.com/Interview:Mark_Sable. Feel free to post at your site. Hope to hear from you soon! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:43, 3 June 2008 (EDT)

Artwork

Badower's part 1 artwork is up now at his blog, and he answers a couple questions at 9thwonders here.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:43, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

Hall interview

Many, many thanks, Ryan. You might want to add it up top with Sable. Therequiembellishere 22:35, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Thanks go to MiamiVolts who transcribed half the thing...We're going to wait until the other half is done to publicize it and link to it...but feel free to read and enjoy the second half of it! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:42, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Sabine

  • Did they ever make it clear that it was in fact Julian that was her significant other? I got the impression that it was actually the Hartsdale duplicate the entire time... or at least that it wasn't yet clear which one she was actually with. (Admin 00:54, 10 June 2008 (EDT))
    • Right, it was the Hartsdale guy, the one she killed, right? Isn't that what I put? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:55, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
      • The link text says Julian, but the link is actually to the Hartsdale duplicate. I dont know if that was intentional or not, but seems ok to me either way. I didnt notice it linked to the duplicate's article until after I left you the message. (Admin 00:56, 10 June 2008 (EDT))
        • Doesn't matter to me either way. I just thought it was an appropriate way to link to the right guy, but to have it appear incorrect, sort of mirroring the way that Sabine thought it was one guy but it was really another. We can make it more clear if you want, I just thought it was kind of sly. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:58, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
          • Yeah, I don't mind it either. All I cared about was that it linked to the right article which it does. :) (Admin 00:59, 10 June 2008 (EDT))

The new Linderman

  • I saw your comment: evsdropr is the new Linderman: the man behind the curtain pulling all the strings... indeed, it does seem that evsdropr gets around. I dunno if it's a man, though... :)--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:53, 10 June 2008 (EDT)

OMG I'm so gelous!

You are now part of heroes! I would LOVE to help out a artist/writer so mutch! If you ever know enyone who wants some help then I would LOVE to do it, thanks --Skywalkerrbf 11:30, 10 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Check out Jason's blog and the blogs of the other graphic novel artists, then. Sometimes they give shout-outs to those that help them.--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:33, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
  • Yeah, Jason's a good guy. We met up for lunch in NYC last year, and we write a lot and help each other with various Heroes-related tasks. Jason's really generous with the shout outs, isn't he! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:49, 10 June 2008 (EDT)

Interviews (Lost Soul)

Hey Ryan! Do you remember when you said to me you could give me a hand with phone interviews, like, software and stuff? Well, I'm probably going to have an interview with Javier Grillo-Marxuach, and I kinda need a hand... would you be able to help? Thanks!--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  11:36, 10 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Sure! (And I can't wait for the interview--good score!) I use FreeConferenceCall. It's a completely free service you can sign up for, no strings attached. After you sign up, you'll get a phone number. It's based in America, but I believe you can use a calling card or even just dial the number, albeit with extra prefix numbers. I'm not sure about calling from England (that's where you are, right?), but I know Jason Badower used the service in Australia with minimal problems. Anyway, when you sign up for the service, you get a phone number. It's not a toll free number, so it's considered a long distance call...but I have free long distance at home and it doesn't cost anything to call long distance on my cell phone either, so it wasn't an issue for me. But you work out a time that you and Javier both call the number. You'll also have to give Javier the access number. There's other minor stuff you'll have to do once you get the phone number, like dial a passcode, an access number, and a code to start recording, but it's pretty user-friendly. If you'd like, you and I can do a practice call. Email me at ryangibsonstewart at heroeswiki dot com, and I'd be more than willing to do a run through with you. Anything for a good interview with a Lost producer! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:56, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
    • So you call it from your own cell? And it records the convo? Sounds great! Is it easy to set up and things? :)--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  13:42, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
      • I think that's three yeses. And afterwards, you can either listen to the recording by calling in or download it as a .wav file. I recommend downloading it and playing it back in an audio editor such as Audacity (which is free). Some of the recording may not be clear and so it may take you listening to it a few times to understand it when transcribing. Also, most audio editors let you select a small portion of the file for repeated playback.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:48, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
        • Yeah, very easy. (Thanks for the good advice, Miami.) You don't have to use your cell phone, though--any phone will do. And not that you need it for this interview, but you can actually have a whole bunch of people on the line at a time. Also, you do have to tell the system (using a code) to record the conversation--it doesn't do it automatically. But the whole thing is very user-friendly--start an account and go from there. If you need more help or want to do a practice call, let me know. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:47, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
          • Would he be able to call me (so he gets charged and not me), and I still record it and get it on my computer? I don't really get that part... Thanks again for your help, both of you!--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  15:04, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
            • No. You both call the service. It will cost you both the cost of a long distance call, whatever that may be for you. The service records the call. Then you download the recording. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:06, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
              • Think of it rather like a private "party" line, heh. Except that it has a recording feature. You both have to call a third party so that party (the computer) can do the recording for you.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:10, 10 June 2008 (EDT)

hmm

Edit summary: "(update with links, rmv ass tracker stuff (or at least keep it to a minimum))"

"ass tracker?" I don't know what kind of wiki you think this is, Ryan. ;) Hope things are well with Oscar. I check your wife's blog from time to time for updates. (Admin 22:41, 10 June 2008 (EDT))

  • Oh, dude, I must have been editing the wrong wiki! Whoops! :) Yeah, Oscar's doing great! He'll be coming home on Thursday, thank goodness! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:44, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
    • That's fantastic. I'm sure the whole family is excited. :) (Admin 22:49, 10 June 2008 (EDT))
  • Heh, I think the 3-letter PC abbreviation is "asn". ;)--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:10, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
    • Oh, but it's so much more fun to say "I killed a rogue duplicate on a really dangerous ass!" -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:14, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
      • True, but that ass might then have four legs, turn around, and bite you. LOL.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:17, 10 June 2008 (EDT)

Backlogs and stuff I dont want to touch

I got more of them--SacValleyDweller (talk) 16:01, 11 June 2008 (EDT)

The Fries

OK! Tasty stuff. You didn't get an answer on the date if the 2008 was a slip up, did you? --SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:39, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Nope. I can't remember why I didn't ask it...but there was a lot to ask, so some things fall to the wayside... Sorry! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:40, 12 June 2008 (EDT)
    • That's ok. :) I smell a plot hole, though. :( Although, personally, I only consider what's in the black on this page to be canon.--SacValleyDweller (talk) 01:08, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

That message title still cracks me up! What was the inspiration for it?--SacValleyDweller (talk) 17:38, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

Uncategorized pages

It seems to me like all the uncategorized pages all have categories assigned to them.. am I missing something? -- Friskymuffin (talk) 18:12, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

Stunts and partnerships

Did you mean to comment out Tony Donno from Template:Stunts? Also, can you look at User:MiamiVolts/List of Company Partnerships and add your feedback? Except for a few pics, I think it's ready to move to the mainspace.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:29, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

  • All red links on the stunts template were commented out so we don't look like Red Square. I fixed it--thanks! I'll leave my comments on discussion page. I'll also grab those pics for you if you want... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:36, 12 June 2008 (EDT)
    • If you could grab those 3 screenshots, that'd be great. A better shot of Mohinder with Elle (maybe from Powerless?) would be good too. I'll try and switch it to use wikitable format now.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:48, 12 June 2008 (EDT)
      • Thanks for fixing the images. If you're still up; go ahead and take another look.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:31, 13 June 2008 (EDT)
        • If it's okay, can you move the partnerships' page? I think the current page needs to be deleted to make way for the move.--MiamiVolts (talk) 18:48, 13 June 2008 (EDT)
          • I was going to try to blank the page so that it would preserve the history, but I still had to delete it. I think there's a way to merge it or something (I remember we did something like that with Peter vs. Sylar, I think) but I forget now, and it's not that important I guess... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:07, 13 June 2008 (EDT)
            • We could have blanked the mainspace page, then manually copied the userpage and pasted it into the edit box for the mainspace one, but I think a move was cleaner since it's a different format and there wasn't that much history yet (it is still a rather new article).--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:26, 14 June 2008 (EDT)

Show later

Haha oh wow--Citizen 12:02, 14 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Yeah, it works pretty nicely and it helps so that we don't have to remember to update things. I'm all about easy maintenance! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:47, 14 June 2008 (EDT)

Happy Father's Day

Hope you had a good father's day at camp.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:22, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Thanks, Miami! Yeah, I did (it was the first day of camp). It was funny--this morning my wife brought me breakfast in bed, a huge basket of gifts...and a baby with a dirty diaper. Ahh, fatherhood! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:28, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

Spelling

Does every spelling on the site have to be the "americanized" version because the site is American? If so, that's fine, you'll just have to excuse me if I put any "english" spellings in instead! (tyres, grey etc.) -- Friskymuffin - (talk) 11:22, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

  • When it comes to article names, yes. When it comes to text within an article I'd recommend trying to keep it in American English, but if you forget I'm sure someone will change it later. :) (Admin 11:27, 17 June 2008 (EDT))
    • It's really more a matter of standardization than because the site is hosted in America. We just need to be consistent. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:30, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
      • I think it's because the show is American. The HP Wiki is American hosted but a British book and Commonwealth spelling is used. Therequiembellishere 18:08, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

IMDbPro?

Hey Ryan! I was just wondering if you had access to IMDbPro? It's an excellent resource, and is a great way of getting contact details for Heroes people. As you may or may not know, I've been doing interviews for Lostpedia, and have reached many of the main cast of that show through IMDbPro. If you like, I could get some details for you? Thanks,--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  11:26, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Does it have contact information for Cristine Rose? There's been some interest in getting an interview with her. By the way, great job bringing the interviews to Lostpedia. I'm pleased to see that they were warmly welcomed there. (Admin 11:30, 19 June 2008 (EDT))
    • Unfortunately not. However, I can work on getting a list together for you, which I can then email to Ryan?--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  15:11, 19 June 2008 (EDT)
      • If you're looking to contact actors/directors, there's another way to go besides IMDb. Try checking for their talent agent/agency at the Association of Talent Agents (ATA) website. Cristine Rose's agent's information is there...--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:28, 19 June 2008 (EDT)
        • Hmmm, I did that before too. But, think that IMDb is better. Cheers for the tip. :)--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  15:46, 19 June 2008 (EDT)
          • I don't have access to IMDbPro, but from what I've seen of it, it would be an excellent resource. I have Chrstine Rose's contact info (well, I have contact info for her PR person). I was asked to contact Christine a little closer to September, which I will most likely do. I would love it if you sent me a list, Lost Soul. My email address is ryangibsonstewart at heroeswiki dot com. By the way, excellent interviews you've done at lostpedia! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:22, 21 June 2008 (EDT)
            • Thank you very much! I sent you a reply email - my free trial for IMDbPro only lasts till Wednesday, so I want to make use of it! :)--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  03:27, 22 June 2008 (EDT)
              • Thanks, LS. The stuff you sent me is terrific, and I can't wait to dig through it at the end of the summer.... Good luck with your Lost interviews--and don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:52, 22 June 2008 (EDT)
                • That's alright - anything to help. As I asked in my email, would you like me to contact some people for you, and then forward anyone who replies to you? If not, then that's fine - I don't want to step on your toes, by any means! - but I'd be happy to help. :)--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  11:08, 22 June 2008 (EDT)
                  • Feel free. I don't have anybody in mind particularly (the majority of my interviews just sort of seem to happen, rather than being the result of a lot of pursuing and chasing people down), but if you'd like to contact some people for me, feel free. And there's certainly no reason why I need to do all the interviews. I read your interview with David Fury and thought it was terrific. You should certainly feel free to conduct a Heroes interview if you'd like! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:05, 22 June 2008 (EDT)
                    • Are you sure? Because I'll only do it if you're absolutely certain it's okay - you've always been the one who does the interviews, and I really don't want to encroach on your territory in any way. I will send a few emails, though, and keep them updated. I'll also email you the copy of the email I will send - I tend to use the same basic framework, and only change the names. Oh, and thank you for your comments, I appreciate it! Thanks so much, Ryan!--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  16:45, 22 June 2008 (EDT)
                      • Absolutely sure. I think it'd be good to have more voices than just mine out there. Plus, I tend to interview people who interest me the most, so it'd be nice to have some interviews in other areas to be a little more well-rounded. And please use me as much as you need for help, advice, etc. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:46, 23 June 2008 (EDT)

Campmaster

So how long is camp for this summer?--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:34, 21 June 2008 (EDT)

Interview a colorist?

Just out of curiosity, has that ever crossed your mind? --SacValleyDweller (talk) 14:32, 24 June 2008 (EDT)

  • Yep! I've talked briefly with Edgar Delgado, Chris Sotomayor, and Annette Kwok. And of course Jason Badower...But I've never really developed a relationship with them to the point where I felt comfortable enough to ask to an interview...and it's been so long now I'm sure they wouldn't remember me. But I'm not opposed to the idea. The only colorist I have really "targeted" (though unsuccessfully) is Peter Steigerwald. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:56, 24 June 2008 (EDT)
