Category

Taking in consideration there is a category for evolved humans with synthetic abilities, should we consider making a category for evolved humans who had their abilities removed? It's consistent with some other categories, such as characters with the Shanti virus. Intuitive Empath 14:02, 31 October 2008 (EDT)

  • I don't mind it. :) Would it only be for characters who are currently powerless (like Peter and Maya) or for any characters who have ever lost their powers (like Sylar)? What would you call the category? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:06, 31 October 2008 (EDT)
    • At first, I was thinking just about the ones who had their powers removed by Arthur, but now that you mention it, I'm in doubt. The Haitian, the ability negation pills and the Shanti virus all suppress abilities, but they don't effectively remove them, the Haitian was able to use his power after being cured, but I think that there are special cases, most notable Sylar, who after being cured still retained his original ability, but lost all but one of his acquired abilities. The category would work for all characters who were powerless for a while, even so even if Peter or Maya got their powers back they'd still fit the category, but then we'd need an "abilities restored" category too. Peter, Maya, Sylar and Adam are the only ones who fit the category right now, maybe we should wait until there are more characters? Intuitive Empath 11:27, 1 November 2008 (EDT)
      • Waiting is probably a prudent idea. I don't mind the category, but it would have to be clearly defined. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:25, 1 November 2008 (EDT)

Patrollers suggestions

I've sent a few suggestions via e-mail to you and Admin a few minutes ago.--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:21, 1 November 2008 (EDT)

more help.

I need to fix the width of the columns on my page, how is that done? --SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:38, 3 November 2008 (EST)

  • nevermind, found a page that will help.--SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:42, 3 November 2008 (EST)
  • I would change the row with your headers to an actual header row by replacing the pipes with exclamation points. So for instance,
{| class=wikitable
|-
! Number 
! Episode 
! Past/Future 
! To where? 
! Centric
|}

yields

Number Episode Past/Future To where? Centric

Then, you can specify the width by using percentages or pixels. For instance, you can specify the width's percentage:

{| class=wikitable
|-
! width=5% | Number 
! width=20% | Episode 
! width=25% | Past/Future 
! width=25% | To where? 
! width=25% | Centric
|}

yields

Number Episode Past/Future To where? Centric

Also, you can specify the width in pixels:

{| class=wikitable
|-
! width=25px | Number 
! width=40px | Episode 
! width=60px | Past/Future 
! width=100px | To where? 
! width=220px | Centric
|}

yields

Number Episode Past/Future To where? Centric

Hope that helps. I'm heading to bed. If you need anything else, just drop me a message and I'll see what I can do tomorrow. Or feel free to experiment. Also, check out Help:Editing#Tables or Wikipedia:Help:Table. Have fun and good luck! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:49, 3 November 2008 (EST)

Patroller

I'd be glad to help out with this. Just finished re-reading the page about it; and will go back and read it again a few more times to be more clear on it; but sure; count me in. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/3/2008 11:24 (EST)

Podcast

I promise the audio will now work...lol. We just recorded our most recent LOST podcast, so it should be all good. Let me know your schedule for this week?? The ODI 18:02, 3 November 2008 (EST)

  • Tuesday (11/4) is good for me after 8 pm EST. Same goes for Wednesday after 9 pm EST. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:05, 3 November 2008 (EST)
    • How about tonight at 9:30 EST? The ODI 12:10, 5 November 2008 (EST)
      • Actually, there was a development with my son and he has to be admitted to the hospital. Nothing too serious, but he has to be tested. He's going in around 3 pm, and I'm not sure when we'll be back (or if I'll be up for talking after that anyway). Gosh, I know it sounds like we keep pushing this back, I'm really sorry... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:12, 5 November 2008 (EST)
        • Sorry to hear about the son, I hope he is ok?? Just let me know when you are free. Just was hoping to post this week sometime. The ODI 18:49, 5 November 2008 (EST)
          • We still set for tomorrow night?? The ODI 19:24, 10 November 2008 (EST)
            • Sounds great. You're calling me, right? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:24, 10 November 2008 (EST)
              • Yup, but via Skype, I got a better software that works great. **Keeps Fingers Crossed** The ODI 03:48, 11 November 2008 (EST)

Power template

Hi there RGS, I just had a question I wanted to ask... if you look at Template:Power, you'll see that a lovely ability created by Bentonyang is still listed in the list of abilities... I've been trying for the past few minutes to get rid of it, but I can't seem to figure out what exactly to edit to remove it. Any tips? Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 20:43, 3 November 2008 (EST)

  • Just clear the DPL cache by editing and previewing the page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:45, 3 November 2008 (EST)
    • Ah, it still seems to be there... Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 20:51, 3 November 2008 (EST)
      • Try purging. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:08, 3 November 2008 (EST)
        • That worked.--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:34, 3 November 2008 (EST)
          • Yup, worked for me too. Thanks! Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 21:34, 3 November 2008 (EST)

Yeah, Thanks for that information very helpful --Harrypotter1994 21:39, 3 November 2008 (EST)

FYI

You might want to check this when you get a minute; User:Skywalkerrbf; unhappy member who also mentioned deleting off prior wiki pages he has contributed. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/4/2008 12:46 (EST)

  • It's ok, Ryan and I know about it already.. but thanks! :) (Admin 12:48, 4 November 2008 (EST))
    • You could of asked be about this.And Admin are you goin got say anything to me? Mayby tell me what was so wrong with them? --Skywalkerrbf 12:51, 4 November 2008 (EST)

Infinity Symbol

http://heroeswiki.com/Inifinity_Symbol

hi, I made a page about the Infinity symbol that keep reappearing in the episodes, just like The Symbol. I'm not sure about this, and I ain't got that much pics by now... Please help improve it...NiveKJ13 15:52, 4 November 2008 (EST)

  • Hey, Nick. Check out The Symbol. They've been including it in some form since the second episode. :) (Admin 15:53, 4 November 2008 (EST))
    • I think Nick means the new symbol that Pinehearst is using, but it's not an infinity symbol as I just mentioned on the related talk page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:55, 4 November 2008 (EST)
      • I don't get the difference. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:55, 4 November 2008 (EST)
        • I'm just realizing, that just like the Helix symbol, it seems like, there are Infinity symbols everywhere in the series...its just a theory... XD NiveKJ13 17:17, 4 November 2008 (EST)
          • And by the way, It's not "Nick", call me "Keff"....NiveKJ -backwards- JKeviN...XD
          • Ah, I see. I moved the page to your user namespace since it's a theory. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:20, 4 November 2008 (EST)

Question on my profile

Can you answer them please as Admin is too busy.--Skywalkerrbf 15:59, 4 November 2008 (EST)

  • I believe I did on your email. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:53, 4 November 2008 (EST)
    • No they were not. I want examples and reasons of what quality mean.--Skywalkerrbf 16:57, 4 November 2008 (EST)
      • AM I ever going to get proper reasons or just I just give up trying?--Skywalkerrbf 17:13, 4 November 2008 (EST)
        • I believe I gave you plenty of detailed reasons via email and Help:Interviews. I don't think we need to further this discussion. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:20, 4 November 2008 (EST)
          • Its ok for you saying that I'm not good enough, but you did not explain your self. You really don't seem to realise that you are ruining my life. You said:


they do not meet grammar standards, spelling standards, formatting standards, or quality standards.
What does quality standards mean? I have dyslexia so grammar and spelling is very hard for me. What was wrong with my formatting? Did I need pictures, more gaps, what? The least you could do is answer my questions, do you realise what you are doing to me?--Skywalkerrbf 17:25, 4 November 2008 (EST)

I duno what to do

This site, this site was what I did, interviews were what I did. I'm so angry that I can't get answers to my questions off anyone, you have ruined my life, please, I am begging you, I am sat here almost crying , why won't someone just give me the answers I want? I have given my all to this site, months of my life. I'm not getting them months back. Please I am actually begging you, I will sit on my knees if I have to. I don't understand what was so bad with them. Give me examples. I need to know. Please, I gave you months of my life, give me minutes of yours back.--Skywalkerrbf 18:03, 4 November 2008 (EST)

  • Please, just answer my questions. I have given you months of my life, is it really too much to ask for a few minutes back for you to tell me the answers? I am so upset, please, I am begging you.--Skywalkerrbf 02:53, 5 November 2008 (EST)
    • Just so I know, are you going to get back to me at some point or not?--Skywalkerrbf 11:19, 5 November 2008 (EST)
      • I believe I've told you everything I can tell you (mostly via email) and don't really have much more to say. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:54, 5 November 2008 (EST)
        • There are only thing you havn't. I want to improve my future interviews and that is hard if you won't answer these two things:
  • What was wrong with the quality of my interviews? Did I ask the wrong questions? Was I rude to the actors ect.
  • Why now? Did NBC complain about my interviews or was it just you and admin? I need to know this as if it was NBC then I don't know if I will continue with my Heroes interviews...
  • Can you give me examples of good/bad interviews? Or are they all bad?


If you could just give me answers to these 3 things then that would be great.--Skywalkerrbf 11:58, 5 November 2008 (EST)

    • I have heard about your son and I am sorry to hear that but are you going to answer my questions or not? People are starting to give me a lot of abuse e.g. calling me a little pig so could you please answer them sooner rather than later? I do want to be able to leave this wiki as people here don't seem to like me any more because of me being over dramatic.--Skywalkerrbf 17:05, 5 November 2008 (EST)
      • No. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:23, 5 November 2008 (EST)
        • Ok that's going to make things a lot harder for me then. I would go on but no I'm tired of trying. If you do change your mind then just send me a email or somthing. I will start trying to set up my own website then. Thanks for the good times, and sorry that you couldn't repay my months of service with a few questions. I've had a good time on this site and sorry it had to end like this with people refusing to talk to me.--Skywalkerrbf 02:52, 6 November 2008 (EST)

Thanks

For replacing the pic.--Citizen 15:38, 5 November 2008 (EST)

Image formats

Do images have to be in .JPG format, or can we upload others such as .PNGs? I'm asking because jpegs usually have for the lack of a better word, a rather crappy quality, and it really shows in some of the images. --Ciwey 03:54, 6 November 2008 (EST)

  • Images can be in .png, .gif, .jpg, or .jpeg formats. Sound clips must be in .ogg format. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:00, 6 November 2008 (EST)
    • Just a small note, that .jpg format tends to be more common here cause it's scales better. We often use the same image for multiple portals, in which case it will be resized using the image tag (and .png and .gif don't do that as well). But if the image is just for use in an image gallery, .png or .gif is okay.--MiamiVolts (talk) 07:48, 6 November 2008 (EST)

Interviews

Hi Ryan, I'm just about to send you an email regarding all this interview stuff. Just wanted to give you the head's up.--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  15:42, 6 November 2008 (EST)

  • Cool, thanks. I think you have my email address. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:46, 6 November 2008 (EST)
    • Uh-huh. Sent the email. :)--  Lost Soul   talk  contribs  15:51, 6 November 2008 (EST)
      • If you ever get an interview with Greg Grunberg, I want to do it, please. Just that one interview, haha. --DocM 16:16, 6 November 2008 (EST)

Image:Precognition.jpg

Hey, Futurepeter. What episode is Precognition.jpg from? — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:39, 6 November 2008 (EST)
  • It took a little while before i found it. It came from episode 16, Unexpected. It was last scene from that episode, in this scene Simone got shot by Isaac.

Interviewquestions for Greg Grunberg

  • Well i got a couple of questions for him, first of all he could probably tell us what was on the note of the group of twelve wheter it's "Suzanne Amman" or Susan Amman. The second question is what's it like to work with Brea. Third one is how was Usutu's food like. and i got a couple more, but this might be a good start for an interview. -- Futurepeter ( U - T - C ) 07:46, 7 November 2008 (EST)
    • Keep in mind that I don't actually have an interview with Greg Grunberg, nor do I think Dave from The OWI will want to do another interview with Greg...but I sent him an email about it. These are great questions! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:42, 7 November 2008 (EST)
      • Thanx Ryan! -- Futurepeter ( U - T - C ) 10:44, 7 November 2008 (EST)

List of abilities

I'm confused about something...See, Santiago have the abiltiy of "Accelerated probability", I know this, because it was mentioned in this Comic Con Video 1. And isn't Kaito Nakamura's ability the same as this one?...

My question is, How am I gonna type it in List of abilities...in "Unkown Abilities" section or "Deleted DVD scenes" section, or do I make one for each...since Santiago is not from the DVD deleted scenes.NiveKJ13 11:47, 8 November 2008 (EST)

  • Santiago's power also looks like it might be super speed. It's hard to say until the webisodes are released on Monday. I think the list of abilities is fine right now as it is. (I fixed it up a bit.) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:51, 8 November 2008 (EST)
    • The problem is, Santiago's not in DVD deleted scenes... :D NiveKJ13 11:54, 8 November 2008 (EST)
      • Actually, you're right--and Santiago is a spoiler right now, so he doesn't belong on the non-spoiler page at all. I left the link to the Comic-Con video since it gives the name. It's a bit of a leap to say that what Kaito did in the deleted scene is the same as the name released in a video about somebody else completely, but I don't think there's much harm in it since ultimately it's a deleted scene. I'm fine with it as it is. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:58, 8 November 2008 (EST)
        • Works for me as well... thnx by the way! : ) NiveKJ13 11:59, 8 November 2008 (EST)

Level 3

hi just saying i think there should be a level 3 page because (unless i hears wrong) angela said to the haitian that there was a incenerator on level 3 in villains.what do you think ? --Gabriel Bishop 15:29, 14 November 2008 (EST) Gabriel Bishop

  • We haven't seen Level 3 yet, so any information about that level should probably go on the Primatech Research article. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:27, 15 November 2008 (EST)
    • thanks i have edited it tell me if it's ok. --Gabriel Bishop 16:42, 15 November 2008 (EST)Gabriel Bishop
      • It's good. It just needed to be alphabetized. Hey, quick tip for you--when you're adding a comment to a talk page, be sure to use asterisks, and generally use one more than the person before you. For instance, if you place a comment below mine, you should use four asterisks (****). -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:47, 15 November 2008 (EST)

pic request

pls...can you get me a Pinehearst monument logo, where Daphne and Linderman had a meeting...pls...tnx in advance..NiveKJ13 16:40, 8 November 2008 (EST)

Super Speed

"Super Speed, rename to, Superior Physical Speed (since theres different kinds of speed; mental (in the choices as well), physical, verbal, etc..."

  • I just noticed, this is what's written in the choices, in the Create Your Hero event NiveKJ13 07:02, 9 November 2008 (EST) Superior Physical Speed
    • what do you think? NiveKJ13 11:29, 9 November 2008 (EST)
      • I think that the on the Create Your Hero voting, they were giving people choices between attributes to vote on, not naming powers. "Effects Speed of People" and "Superior Physical Speed" are attributes to vote on, not names of the abilities. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:59, 9 November 2008 (EST)
        • Just a head's up, the article text was copied back instead of moved back from "superior physical speed" because NiveJK13 edited the "super speed" page after moving it blocking a move back. I've added an afd and a rename template tag as appropriate to fix the history.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:48, 9 November 2008 (EST)

1 person, 2 abilities, should have 2 pages...

Is it possible that one hero can have more than 2 abilities, without absorbing from others...?

coz I really think that some have 2 powers like Knox, He's got Fear Absorption and Enhanced Strength...and the Santiago, I think he's got Accelerated Probability and Enhanced Speed. Aren't we suppose to make 2 different pages for each ability they have?NiveKJ13 07:04, 9 November 2008 (EST)

  • Mr. Bennet told Sylar that everybody they had come in contact with at that point had only possessed one ability each (Fallout). The only person I know of who is listed as having two abilities (other than through some form of absorption) is Brendan Lewis--and even then, I'm not convinced that his regeneration wasn't an aspect of his plant manipulation...but that's another story. No, I don't think Knox has two abilities--he has the ability of enhanced strength which he gets by feeding off the ambient emotions of others. The strongest cases for somebody with more than one ability is Hiro (who can stop time, teleport, and travel through time) and the Haitian (who can block the abilities of others and can erase memories). But it's been shown a few times that even these guys have only one power--Hiro said he can manipulate space and time (which is the umbrella for everything he does) and we've called the Haitian's ability "mental manipulation" as a catchall for everything he does. I think it's too early to tell much about Santiago's power, but you can bet dollars to donuts that he's only got one ability. We'll see tomorrow, won't we? :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:06, 9 November 2008 (EST)
    • ok...but then, if tomorrow in Heroes: Destiny, when the webisode showed that Santiago have Super Speed and Accelerated Probability, are you gonna make 2 different pages. I know there's already Super speed, but what about Accelerated Probability...since, another person have the same ability - Kaito Nakamura...NiveKJ13 14:10, 9 November 2008 (EST)
      • Kaito does not have that ability, or any ability at all. What you are referring to is a deleted scene. If we make a page about accelerated probability, Kaito's name can go in the notes and nowhere else. But unless they're explicit in saying that Santiago has two powers, we will make one page that describes his one power. I don't yet know what power that will be, but I imagine it will be super speed. I also imagine that if he's able predict probabilities, it's because his brain works at super speed, too, which is a little different than the super speed we've seen from Daphne. Again, we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see how it all plays out. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:14, 9 November 2008 (EST)

Question about images

Hey. I wanted to create a page for the explosion future Ando (even though it would have very little on it), and I was trying to use this image, but even using the thumbnailing piping or pixel specifications (200x250px), I couldn't get it to look right in the portal (the bottom half seems to be all white). I was wondering if there is another way to get it as a portal image, or if I'd need to edit it and reupload it. Beyond that, I was wondering if you had any suggestions as an alternative to creating his page. I mainly wanted to do it for two reasons:

  1. He was mentioned a bunch and played a part in how Future Hiro behaves (and we have pages for other minor future characters like Crane boy and Parkman's son).
  2. To note the conflicting stories of his death. Future Peter tells Ando that he died in the explosion (Five Years Gone) but Ando tells Hiro that Sylar killed him, using the final 9th Wonder issue as evidence. (The Hard Part)

Thanks.

I think TEN may be back

Check out User:Linderman Mendez's changes. I patrolled and undid them so far, but they include listing Issac and Arthur as Peter's grandparents, and giving Maury a pizza delivery service. --Stevehim 11:47, 10 November 2008 (EST)

  • Also check out User:Gabriel monroe, as he's vandalizing things as well. On a side note, what's going on with the the Mr. Muggles theory page? Seems like a lot of nonsense on there. --Stevehim 12:11, 10 November 2008 (EST)

      • Thank you, faggot who dreams so much of the ability to have a "superpower" he actually photoshops images. Not cool 22:22, 10 November 2008 (EST)
        • Haha, at least that's not my entire life. And I'm actually not a faggot. I'm quite heterosexual. ;) Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 22:23, 10 November 2008 (EST)
          • Since when is trolling my life either? This is my first time looking at this site since my unfair ban. "I'm heterosexual" That's funny right there.
            • It actually isn't! You've created quite a few spam accounts for the sole purpose of harassing Ryan. But I don't really see why that's funny, actually. It's true, after all. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 22:27, 10 November 2008 (EST)

                  • You don't believe me, that's fine. You've a right to your opinion whether it comes into conflict with a fact or not, I suppose. But I only edited here for the sole purpose of telling you all that I wasn't the vandal you're talking about. You insulted me first, remember. Not cool 22:30, 10 November 2008 (EST)

My user page

I need some help recreating my info box for my page. For some reason I don't know why it won't format itself correctly I think something is obviously missing. Horrorman 1:48, 10 November 2008 (EST)

  • It looks like you've got it worked out. At a simple glance, it looks like you were missing the end of some links. Is that what you needed? If you need anything else, let me know. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:20, 10 November 2008 (EST)

Question about punctuation

I looked on the editing page, but didn't see it there. When listing an episode at the end of a sentence, does the period go before or after it? I noticed you placed it after in a recent edit (so assume that's correct), but it seems to go before in a lot of places throughout the site. And would the same rule apply to the examples of abilities sections? Also, I was looking at the redirects, and am not exactly sure how it works. Do I just edit the page and put the redirect command in? (eg - On the Ando (explosion future), goto edit and type #REDIRECTAndo Masahashi (explosion future))?Thanks. --Stevehim 17:20, 10 November 2008 (EST)

  • Check help:cites. There are no set-in-stone rules, but there are some guidelines. Really, it depends how it's used. If the cite can be used for the entire paragraph, then it makes sense to put it outside the paragraph. If it can be used for only a part of a sentence, it should go at the end of the part it refers to. If it is a reference for an entire sentence within a paragraph (and there is another sentence that follows that does not need the reference), then it goes inside the sentence. Here are some examples:
    1. Peter fights Sylar at Homecoming. Then he falls off the roof and Claire thanks him. (Homecoming)
    2. Peter absorbs flight from Nathan (Genesis), but loses it to Arthur (Dying of the Light).
    3. Peter is Claire's uncle (Distractions). This would mean that if they ever dated, it would be really icky.
  • Hope that helps. Regarding the redirect, yes, that's all you do. Pretty simple, really. Check out how the page for "Peter" is edited for an example. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:50, 10 November 2008 (EST)

Accelerated probability - "working outs"

  • Hi, I just wanna say that, what I mean by "working outs", is like working out a problem, like in maths, you need to do some working out to find the answer. So in Accelerated probability, he doesn't need to do any solutions and stuff to work out the probabiltiy...i dont know something like that hehe XD NiveKJ13 19:50, 10 November 2008 (EST)
    • Gotcha. I figured you meant something like that...but "without any working outs" doesn't make sense. I think what you're trying to say is something like "without having to work anything out." However, we don't know very much about the power, but we do know that Kaito compared his mind to a computer, which definitely does have to work things out, just at a very accelerated pace. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:54, 10 November 2008 (EST)

Apology

Look mate, I'm sorry but i am editing my userpage. -- Linderman Mendez 14:20, 11 November 2008 (EST)

  • Yeah I understand mate but can you give Gabriel monroe his account back. I would be very grateful. His account has been hacked.That is why he has changed his password.But does Mr. Muggles have a power and has Maya gone for good? Cheers. -- Linderman Mendez 15:21, 11 November 2008 (EST)
    • If the account was hacked, I certainly don't want to give the hacker back the account. If it wasn't hacked, then Gabriel monroe did some serious vandalism, ignored warnings, and erased warnings. I don't think it's a good idea. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:23, 11 November 2008 (EST)

Alejandro's ability

  • I actually have no idea about what a "verified" or "unverified" tip is. The thingy is gone now, I was just messing around that time in the Assignment Tracker when I saw the tip, so I thought it was real, coz you guys keep talking about the Assignment Tracker when you decide names, and since thats in the AT, then I thought maybe its real. I knew it was fake, the spelling's wrong LOL Witchy2006 18:55, 12 November 2008 (EST)
    • I hope you don't think I'm accusing you of anything. I know you uploaded the image, but anybody would have done the same if they thought it was legit....In the assignment tracker map, there's a box in the top right corner that says "Assignments," "Tips," and "Verified Tips". If the "Tips" box is checked, it shows entries that come from basically any fan who wants to submit stuff. The "Assignments" and "Verified Tips" are from NBC. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:07, 12 November 2008 (EST)

Can we use this anywhere?

I made this little "BrowseAll" template yesterday,

Browse All edit
Episodes Webisodes Graphic Novel
(which is what got me into messing with collapsible tables), because I wanted a one-stop-shop kinda point of quick-reference to be able easily jump to any episode or GN and either its main-page, or its image-page...without having to drill through other pages, and menus, etc...and also that would list the numerical value of each epi/gn because sometimes folks refer to them that way, and I can't always remember what number is what, and have to go digging to find it.

I made this as a template, with as small a footprint as possible, and am now using it on my userpage; but was wondering if there would be a place on the main board this would be useful for with other members. Any ideas? --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/13/2008 11:05 (EST)

  • It needs a little bit of cleaning: I would put the full number of the episodes, so 308 for Villains instead of just 08. The first three S2 episodes need to have space between the episode name and the "images" link. Shouldn't we italicize the episode and graphic novel titles, and not italicize the "pages" and "images" links? I would also switch the order of the rows: put the episode number, then the title, then page link (but I would call it "episode page" or "graphic novel page" or something) and finally the image page. Finally, the bottom needs to be rounded. Nice job putting War Buddies, Part 7 in two spots--looks great.

    After that, where do we put it? I don't really know. I like it a lot. Hmm. Let me think for a bit and work on it when I get home from work tonight... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:14, 13 November 2008 (EST)

    • Point 1) I started with the season number '308' in the numbering, then realized after I had them all entered, that it looked redundant, since they are grouped by season, and when you're in the 'Season 3' list, you know 08 is 308...so I took the season-prefix off, to let the season heading handle that.

      Point 2) I agree about italicing the title, and normalling the 'page/image' links...will do that.

      Point 3) I also started with it ordered as number, epi, page, image; but since the episode names are all different sizes, it makes it very unreadable that way; in this order, every thing is in clean, straight columns...I was trying for a more sophisticated template that was quick and clean; and that is why I tried to mimimize extra redundant text in the rows...('Page' instead of 'blah blah page', etc...) because after a few uses, it would be easy for anyone to catch on to how it works. It's really intended to be a fast, quick-reference tool from getting to where you want to go.

      One thing I wish I could figure out how to do with the collapsible table feature, is remove the forced double-space (extra blank row) between each table...who is our resident wiki-code expert who might know if this is doable? --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/13/2008 11:26 (EST)

      • I'd suggest perhaps considering to add it to Heroes, and I agree you should make it display as initially collapsed as it's rather big. Ryan said he'll work on it tonight for you, but if you want to try yourself here's a couple tips: 1) remember that a header row is always required for collapsible tables to work properly, and 2) it's a good idea to always put a width= attribute to prevent shrinking...if you look at the code on the Nielsen Ratings article, that could help you with the spacing issues.--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:07, 13 November 2008 (EST)
        • Just consolidated the 'Page' link into the title name, and also moved the image link to the end, after the title as Ryan suggested. Will let it set now, and let you guys think more about it, and see if others comment. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/13/2008 12:24 (EST)

Please Unblock Linderman Mendez

Hi i would like to say please unblock linderman mendez. I told him to copy the user template without knowing it would delete other peoples. he is a nice guy who enjoys watching heroes like everyone on here so plz could you unblock him. p.s who is ten? -- Gabriel Bishop 15:02, 13 November 2008 (EST)

  • I'd like to speak with Linderman Mendez myself, but since he is blocked he cannot. Please have him send me an email at ryangibsonstewart at heroeswiki dot com. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:01, 13 November 2008 (EST)
    • okay m8 i will ask him tommorow :) -- Gabriel Bishop 16:03, 13 November 2008 (EST)

        • He might send you one in the next days but he said it would be easier for him if you could unblock him. i know you might not want to but could you give him a chance p.s could u check the elle page to see if its and ok edit :$ --Gabriel Bishop 16:11, 14 November 2008 (EST)Gabriel Bishop
          • I don't make it a habit to unblock people that repeatedly insert silly information into articles ([1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10], [11]). It would have to be a pretty convincing argument, if you ask me. But ultimately, though I have the ability to unblock Linderman Mendez, I have never blocked him. He was blocked once as a warning, ignored it, and blocked again infinitely for messing with a widely-used template ([12], [13], [14])--this may have been an inadvertent mistake, but his history is certainly blockworthy. Keep in mind that both these blocks were given by somebody else. I support my fellow administrators, so I would not reverse the block without the blocker's go-ahead. Further, I really agree with the decision to block him. Those silly edits destroy the integrity of the wiki, demean the hard work and dedicated contributions of others, and create a big headache for those who have to reverse the vandalism. Linderman Mendez may certainly send me an email as I described above, but I'm not sure how much good it will do. It will have to be a very strong case, and it will have to be determined by the person who blocked him, not by me. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:52, 14 November 2008 (EST)

ok but he's alright,he loves heroes and the contributions to this wiki as everyone on this website but i will have to tell ted c about "the accident" thanks .also could you reply to my level 3 question plz--Gabriel Bishop 12:17, 15 November 2008 (EST)Gabriel Bishop

Ability names

Future Peter - Object displacement

  • I just noticed that in the first episode, The Second Coming, when Future Peter sent Matt into Africa, he didn't really teleported Matt in there, if he did then he would've also be with Matt in Africa then travelled beck to the previous location; Future Peter just touched Matt and sent him into Africa...and as you can see, in the Unknown Abilities in the Abilities article, theres an Object displacement abiltiy, meaning touching an object and then sending them to unknown locations...what do you think?NiveKJ13 13:11, 13 November 2008 (EST)
    • I think it's entirely probable that Future Peter teleported Matt to Africa. It's also possible he used another power, but that's more speculative. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:08, 13 November 2008 (EST)

Arthur Patrelli - Floating

  • And about Arthur Petrelli, in the episode Eris Quod Sum, when he made Sylar float in the air while talking to him. If Arthur is using telekinesis then he would've been using his hand while making Sylar float, this is what's been being shown to us, but he doesn't, he just talks to Sylar while Sylar is floating...isn't this suppose to be ability, we can call it Floating like Shattering, Melting and FreezingNiveKJ13 13:10, 13 November 2008 (EST)
    • I would never doubt the advanced nature of Arthur's abilities. He is deft and nimble, and he is much more powerful than we know. However, others have held things in place without holding out their hands. For instance, Sylar held Mohinder on the ceiling and Peter against a wall and began to cut open his skull, all at the same time, and I don't remember him motioning to Mohinder. He also caused snow flakes and snow globes to float around his mother's apartment, yet he wasn't always using his hands to move them. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:08, 13 November 2008 (EST)

Bathroom Cheerleaders

On the talk page of the Betty graphic novel, you mentioned Ryan Odagawa told you the names of the three cheerleaders in the bathroom. Any chance we could use them to name the pages rather than differentiate the cheerleaders by their hair colour? --Ciwey 06:36, 14 November 2008 (EST)

  • Ryan told me the names of the real-life girls he used as models for the three cheerleaders. They are friends of his. He also asked that those names be kept quiet to sort of protect his friends' identities. I think I published them at one point and then deleted them at his request, but I can't remember now. Because he asked to keep them private and because they're the names of real people (not the names of the girls in the comic), it's probably best that we don't use them at all. As much as I'd like to differentiate the names of the cheerleaders, I don't think we have enough information to do that. Oh well! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:01, 14 November 2008 (EST)

Fan powers

I guess the best way to describe the problem is when I do that User:Horrorman/some fan power, and after I head to the create this page link, it only gives me an option for a user infobox. Horrorman 11:56, 14 November (EST)

  • Ah, I see what your talking about. Solution: don't click that option. :) Nah, in all seriousness, I was thinking about that earlier--I was making a user subpage, or commenting on somebody else's, or something like that, and it was pretty annoying that there was an option for a user infobox. I'll see what I can work on later tonight. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:07, 14 November 2008 (EST)

Things have been a bit crazy at home.  :( Hopefully, I'll have more time to devote soon. --Stevehim 16:37, 16 November 2008 (EST)

  • No worries--and I hope you don't feel like there's a minimum amount of time you should be spending on the wiki. It's completely volunteer, of course. I've been busy with my son in and out of the hospital, and life is crazy at the moment. In fact, I usually get online just to relieve stress! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:40, 16 November 2008 (EST)
    • I know...I just feel I should be doing more. I'm very sorry to hear about your son. Everything is going to be alright I trust? --Stevehim 19:11, 16 November 2008 (EST)
      • No idea. He's not growing, and he's recently developed the nasty habit of vomiting everything he eats. Everything. The doctors think that the two issues, and some other minor ones, are all interrelated. Hopefully they'll find answers. Thanks for your concern, Stevehim. :) And personally, I think you're a terrifically strong editor. Keep up the good work, but only when you get around to it. Home always comes first! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:16, 16 November 2008 (EST)

Playing with Fire

I got an email from Zach Craley. I told him that some people have said that the sailor in the end of Playing with Fire is supposed to be Nathan. It would make sense from the timing (they would have met about 18 years ago), and it'd be a cool ending. I know Nathan was a pilot, but I wasn't sure if he was a sailor. I also asked Zach what happened to Mrs. Gordon, Meredith's mom?

I'm glad so many people picked up on the tie-in at the end. Michael Gaydos would have to confirm whether or not that's actually Nathan, but I did suggest that he could be present in the script. So yes, the timing is right--but maybe not necessarily the moment she met Nathan, in case that is territory they ever want to explore in the show. Nathan became a Navy Pilot and attended Annapolis. Flint generalizes by calling them all "sailors," cause he's a colloquial kinda guy.

I submitted some info for the assignment tracker that would fill in what happened to the mother and where they live, not sure if that's gone live yet? Don't want to spoil anything if it hasn't, or in case something has to change.

So bottom line, it looks like Nathan being in the novel is up for personal interpretation, but we probably shouldn't include it on our pages. No, I don't have Michael Gaydos's contact information, but not for lack of trying. I'm still looking for the password to that assignment tracker profile. It'll be C013--that's the only one that's live that we don't have the password for... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:06, 17 November 2008 (EST)

Minor Edit About Sylar's Age

Hi me again just saying that i have written sylar's age as 27 because peter and gabriel gray are twins.--Gabriel Bishop 15:40, 17 November 2008 (EST)Gabriel Bishop

Mr. Gordon.

I started moving everything according to Flint's assignment tracker, but when I tried to move Mr. Gordon -> Flint Gordon, the page already existed, so I'm not sure what to do. Just a heads up.--Riddler 08:17, 18 November 2008 (EST)

  • That's because Flint Gordon already exists as a page (it's a redirect now) and would need to be deleted. However, in this case, every time Flint Gordon is linked on Heroes Wiki, it refers to Flint Gordon, Jr., so we'll leave that redirect alone. Instead, I'll move Mr. Gordon to Flint Gordon, Sr. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:47, 18 November 2008 (EST)
  • Actually, I just read the AT profile, and it never calls the father "Flint". Flint, Jr.'s name is Junior, but that doesn't mean his father's name is Flint. I was named after an uncle, and as a youth was called Junior. Many kids are named Junior if they are named after a grandparent, etc. David H. Lawrence XVII was not named after his father (though that's a different story, isn't it?) In any case, I left the father at Mr. Gordon, where it probably should be. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:56, 18 November 2008 (EST)

"Elephant man"

Hi RGS, I just saw your edit to Template:AppearancesIt's Coming‎ and you changed the use of "elephant man" because it's speculative and somewhat degrading. I just thought I'd point out that the test subject was actually credited as Elephant Man in the end credits of It's Coming. I don't really have a problem with either name, I just wanted to hear what you thought? Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 20:22, 18 November 2008 (EST)

  • If that's how he was credited, then that's what we can use. I was actually just checking reference to see the credits--my TiVo cut off the last two minutes of the episode. Ugh. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:23, 18 November 2008 (EST)

rgs i changed elephant man to pinehearst test subject. i think this is a better name do you agree?--Gabriel Bishop 17:04, 22 November 2008 (EST)Gabriel Bishop

  • He was credited as elephant man, so that's how he should stay. It's a more specific name than "Pinehearst test subject". -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:08, 22 November 2008 (EST)

Jessica Sanders (Niki's sister)

Wasn't Jessica Niki's older sister? The girl in the headbox looks like she's the younger one of the two girls in the photo.

Also, for Arthur's team; do you want to use the promo-photo from "It's Coming" of the team standing behind Arthur after he painted the eclipse? --Cylon 22:05, 18 November 2008 (EST)

  • I don't know of anything that says that Jessica was older than Niki. In Distractions, Niki talks about listening to her sister play the piano--some have felt that implied that Niki was younger. However, Jessica was born in 1976, and Niki was born on August 24, 1974. The promo image sounds like a good one. Let me format it correctly. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:09, 18 November 2008 (EST)

  • We can just leave it as a redirect to Usutu's hut. Typically we don't make redirects for incorrect capitalization, but I think it's fine to keep it around. By the way, only administrators can delete pages. If you have a page that you want deleted, either let an administrator know, or mark it with {{afd}}. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:38, 19 November 2008 (EST)

It was deleted because you created the article in the main namespace (meaning it was just "mna") and not in the user namespace (meaning that it has to begin with "User:Gabriel Bishop/"). -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:19, 21 November 2008 (EST)

Transcripts

I am really sad that www.kilohoku.com has died. (The site that hosted Heroes Transcripts). I think I put together all of the 1st season episodes into one html file for you a couple years ago....I have saved off, all of Season 1 and 2 transcripts. (In their kilohoku format)....I am thinking about starting a project to gut and clean them down, and working through all of them, and reducing them down just to the actual on-screen spoken text; to have as a reference. All they would contain would be the Episode title, and the dialogue...that way, I am not infringing upon kilohoku (if they even still exist), but just re-representing the transcripts as they are from the episodes themselves. I would eventually like to have them drilled down cleanly enough to start building up a wiki-page for each epi transcript; that can be linked from the epi-page. If all of this goes well; I would like to endeavor to transcribe the GNs. Yes, I have already done Monsters....I am off to a blazing start there. What do you think of the idea of inclusion of transcripts on the wiki? (If not for whatever reason), what would you think of an off-wiki website that I happen to stumble upon that has all of the transcripts; and then linking to it? Just kinda thinking outloud on this...I use to use the transcripts alot; and if this is a project that can be accepted at the wiki; I would like to get underway with it as time is available. For Season 3, I will have to manually transcribe all of those by hand; and want to get that done before too many new epis come out. What do you think? --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/20/2008 17:59 (EST)

  • p.s., I also have the sword saint series transcribed and the Tim Kring Pilot transcribed. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/20/2008 18:01 (EST)
    • I contacted kilohoku awhile ago about using her transcripts, and she granted me permission (provided I follow a few stipulations). I have put them on my blog in pretty much the exact format they were on at kilohoku. (Actually, I have a few more to put on from S2, I'm just being lazy.) I'm not real comfortable putting them on the wiki, but a blog is a good idea. I talked about the idea of getting people together to do the S3 transcripts here, but people either didn't see the post or weren't interested. If you're interested, we can link to my blog etc. It's not a project I want to work on alone--I'll make you an administrator on the blog, if you want. GN transcripts are not as important, I think, but are still a great idea, and we could include those on the blog. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:45, 20 November 2008 (EST)
      • Sounds like a plan. (I have all of S2 if you need any of them to finish that one up). It is a daunting task all at once, but broken up into smaller bites; it won't be too bad; and it will be worth alot once it is all done. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/20/2008 19:11 (EST)
        • I had the foresight to save all the S2 transcripts before they went offline. (I was inspired by you, to be honest.) I can go ahead and finish putting them all on my transcript blog now. Really, I was just waiting for somebody to show some interest. I'll post the link in a few... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:24, 20 November 2008 (EST)
          • Okay, all the transcripts are posted for Seasons One and Two. Here's the link: http://heroes-transcripts.blogspot.com/ Let me know how you want to proceed with Season Three. If you want to do graphic novel transcripts (for searching purposes), I think we should put them on a separate blog. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:46, 20 November 2008 (EST)
            • Because I already had them handy, I went ahead and created this: http://heroes-transcripts-swordsaint.blogspot.com/ for the Sword Saint series. I suppose right now, I'll also start one for the GNs; since I already have 'Monsters' and I can do them at work when time is free, since they don't require monkeying with sound. I'll post the link to them as well, when I get the first one put in. I'll have to work on S3 epis at home; so that will be longer. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/21/2008 14:47 (EST)
              • If you send me your google account or blogger account email address, I can grant you full administrative privileges for http://heroes-transcripts.blogspot.com/ and we can have everything centralized for the episodic transcripts. Just to keep things simple, we should probably have a separate blog for the GN transcripts. I have the original scripts for Road Kill, War Buddies, Part 4, War Buddies, Part 4, and maybe one other one. The scripts for a few others are online (Robert Atkins posted most or all of his at 9thwonders.com). (Speaking of the Road Kill transcript, I need to look up the Northeast Brewing Company trucker's real name...) The rest of the GNs would have to be done by hand, I guess. Ugh. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:15, 21 November 2008 (EST)
                • Heres my start to the GN transcript blog. http://heroes-transcripts-graphicnovels.blogspot.com/ I'm gonna change my blog email address that I created them by to one more Heroes-sintric...will send you that once I get it created. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/21/2008 15:29 (EST)
                  • It'll be later on before I can get going, our work firewall blocks all web-based email accounts, so I can't get to yahoo or gmail; although luckily, I can get to googles blogger pages. Will let you know when I'm good to go. Also, I tried to set up the two new blogs (SS and GN) to match your epi format, was am unsure how you are using 'labels' to setup a TOC. How did you do that? --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/21/2008 15:34 (EST)
                    • Looks good. I have your "real" email address, but if you want to use another for the blog, that's fine. Let me know what it is when you have it. If you'd prefer to keep it private, that's cool--just email it to me. (ryangibsonstewart at heroeswiki dot com). Also, if you want me to fix up anything on the GN transcript blog (there are some spelling mistakes and some formatting things that should probably be standardized), let me know. The labels should be at the bottom of the editing page--I can do that in a snap if you want. My blogger email address is the same as the one above, but it's hotmail instead of heroeswiki. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:37, 21 November 2008 (EST)
                      • When I get home either tonight or tomorrow, and get a good gmail account setup for this; I'll move things over, then set you up as a 'Blog Author' so you can access both of them. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/21/2008 15:58 (EST)
                        • new blogid setup and invites sent to your email to join.--HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/21/2008 20:00 (EST)
                          • Great. I'm confirmed as an author, which means I can add new posts. I won't really contribute to the Sword Saint blog, unless there are other videos released one day, I guess. (By the way, in the blog description, "SwordSaint" needs to be two words--only an administrator can change that.) Do you want me to add the graphic novels in order, or just in whatever order they happen to get transcribed? Also, with just "author" status, I can't edit the transcripts that are already there--I can only add new ones. That's fine if that's what you want....Whenever you get your new email account set up, let me know, and I'll add you as an administrator on the episodes blog. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:50, 21 November 2008 (EST)
                            • Just set you to admin on both...couldn't do it until after you accepted being an 'author'. Will be away most of the weekend, but put up and alter whatever you think needs it.--HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/21/2008 22:20 (EST)
                              • Sent you an email earlier today.--HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/23/2008 22:52 (EST)
                                • I didn't get it. ryangibsonstewart at heroeswiki dot com. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:03, 23 November 2008 (EST)
  • Lostpedia has transcripts linking from the episode pages, and its one of the site's highlights. Why can't we do the same thing? in b4 we're not Lostpedia, etc.--Citizen 21:31, 25 November 2008 (EST)
    • We actually just did. Check the See Also section of any episode from the first two seasons (like Run!#See Also or Lizards#See Also. We haven't transcribed the third season episodes yet. If you'd like to help out, just let me know. Additionally, we've started transcribing the graphic novels (well, HiroDynoSlayer has) so there is searchable text. Check out Monsters#See Also or Sum Quod Sum, Part 1#See Also. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:36, 25 November 2008 (EST)
      • I wanted them to be here on the wiki like Lostpedia. Oh well.--Citizen 21:50, 25 November 2008 (EST)
        • Oh, I see. No, we can't. It goes against our license, and it violated fair use. Plus, if I get in trouble for posting the transcripts, I'd rather only have to shut down my blog rather than have the wiki shut down. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:57, 25 November 2008 (EST)
          • Question about labeling on the transcript blogs. From what I am seeing in the wiki side, we are just using the name part of the label to do our linking with. However, on the transcript blogs; we have labels for both the name, and the numerical value. To me, if we aren't using the numeric label for anything, I want to get rid of it, because it just clutters up the TOC. What we can do, is remove the numeric part of the lables; and then edit the actual Title; so that the TItle itself (which we don't use for linking) is formated like so: "101: Genesis", or "112: Partners", etc. That way, anyone who goes there can still have the benefit of our inclusion of the number (in the title); but the label itself will just be the epi-name, which is what we use for linking back to the wiki, and what shows in the TOC. What do you think? --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/26/2008 11:27 (EST)
            • It helps with organizing. That way each transcript isn't just found alphabetically, but in order also. I think there's a way to make the links on the side be less obtrusive, like a drop-down menu instead. I'll see what I can find. (If anybody knows much about blogger extensions, let me know.) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:53, 26 November 2008 (EST)
              • Just playing around with things, using Going Postal P1 as a test-case. I take the label from "001, Going Postal Part 1" (which is a two-part label indexing both 001 and the name because of the comma operator; and change it to be "001: Going Postal Part 1", it now only shows once, and only has one label indexed. If I do the following search, it finds it in this format: "http://heroes-transcripts-webisodes.blogspot.com/search/label/001:%20%20Going%20Postal%20Part%201". So....since we have all of our webisodes, GNs, and Episodes numbered; is there a way to modify the { {seealsotranscripts}}, { {seealsotranscriptsgn}}, and { {seealsotranscriptsweb}} templates so that besides dynamically embedding the { {PAGENAME}} into the search url; we also prefix the PAGENAME with the number in "001: " format? If we could do that, then we could just change all the labels on the blog entires to "999: Title", and then the seealsotranscript templates will still find them; and we will only have one list in the TOC, which includes both the number and the title. I am not exactly sure where the PAGENAME template is being generated from, and if there is a similar variable that keeps up with the Epi number. Do you think that might work? --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/26/2008 13:33 (EST)
                • If the issue is the big TOC on the right side of the blog, there's a way to make it smaller in a drop-down menu. I just have to figure out how to do it. The problem with changing the label to "001: Going Postal Part 1" is that the labels wouldn't be alphabetic, only chronological. Plus, getting the number to print automatically on the seealsotranscript links is not very easy. I could probably do it, but it would be very messy and we run the risk of glitches. By the way, PAGENAME is a magic word, not a template. There's no way to alter it or change it at all. I believe it's just an inherent part of MediaWiki. Let me see what cool stuff I can do over the Thanksgiving break about the TOC. Check out the drop-down menu on http://heroesspoilers-odi.blogspot.com/, for instance (at the top where it says "Jump to a subject"). -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:46, 26 November 2008 (EST)

bit of help?

hi, i'm pretty new here, figured you were the best person to ask questions to. how do you create an article just for fun, in a uh....namespace, or whatever it is called? like the one you have here: http://heroeswiki.com/User:Ryangibsonstewart/Behind_the_Eclipse ? Just a query I had. I know how to make a normal article, just not one like that. thanks for the help. - Tristan0709 01:56, 21 November 2008 (EST)

  • There's a few ways. Typing the name of your article in the search bar is the easiest. For instance, type "User:Tristan0709/ARTICLETITLE" in the search bar. Then, click the red link that is created at the top of the page, and begin editing. Another way is to create a red link on your own user page, then click that red link. Bottom line, you need to create a red link, click it, and begin editing. Check out Help:Editing#Adding New Pages, too. Let me know if you need more direction. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:57, 21 November 2008 (EST)
    • Thanks. Seems kind of simple when I think about it. - Tristan0709 00:04, 22 November 2008 (EST)
      • No problem. It is pretty simple, but if you don't know how to do it, you don't know how to do it period. Would you believe that before I started editing Heroes Wiki, I read Lostpedia for months...without knowing you could even edit the site? Sheesh! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:28, 22 November 2008 (EST)

Gabrielle name

Has this pairing ever been referred to as Gabrielle?

I've only heard it referred to as Syelle. --Cylon 08:44, 22 November 2008 (EST)

  • I've never heard of either one used in "real life". I called it "Gabrielle" here. Why do you ask? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:26, 22 November 2008 (EST)
    • Syelle is the term used in this Sylar/Elle community, and I've heard the term used elswhere as well. I've never heard the term Gabrielle used.
    • Also, as of now Sylar is still the name most commonly associated with the character, even if Gabriel is his real name. --Cylon 14:00, 22 November 2008 (EST)
      • I think "Gabrielle" is a cool name, and the relationship started when Sylar was known as Gabriel, and was rekindled when he was known again (by the Company) as Gabriel (or Agent Gray). Are you asking me if you can change the name? That's really something to be brought up on Talk:Gabrielle. I don't really care one way or another. I try to stay away from relationship pages. In fact, I only edit them because they're still in the main namespace and not in a Fan Creations namespace. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:09, 22 November 2008 (EST)

Statistical curiosity

I just checked the site statistics, and with the current number of registered members, 0.07% are administrators. Funny isn't it? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 16:45, 24 November 2008 (EST)

Seealsotranscripts template

I'm not sure if this will help you with that template, but when handling url's it sometimes helps to use the #urlencode and #urldecode functions. For instance, {{#urlencode:http://heroeswiki.com/Talk:Upstate New York farm}} becomes {{#urlencode:http://heroeswiki.com/Talk:Upstate New York farm}}, and {{#urldecode:heroeswiki.com%2FTalk%3AUpstate+New+York+farm}} becomes heroeswiki.com/Talk:Upstate New York farm.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:45, 24 November 2008 (EST)

  • Oh, that's good to know. The issue I'm on now is more about blogspot's label restrictions rather than the url encoding. Feel free to make some changes if you'd like. Thanks, Miami! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:48, 24 November 2008 (EST)
    • Right, you were talking about space character issues. #urlencode converts all spaces to the + character.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:50, 24 November 2008 (EST)
      • I think I was having a problem with the DPL code putting a space before itself. It was very weird. Either way, it's probably better to not go with DPL in this case, and just use the pagename. It means that a few of the pages will need special labels (like "Angels & Monsters" becomes "Angels and Monsters" or "Run!" becomes "Run!"), but that's a minor issue. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:52, 24 November 2008 (EST)
        • Yeah, I see DPL doesn't need to be used in this case cause the information is static. Also, in Template:Seealsotranscriptsgn, you're doing a couple replaces. If you use #urlencode, you shouldn't have to do the replace of the _ (underscore) character cause the function will do that for you.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:58, 24 November 2008 (EST)
          • #urlencode changes the underscores to plus signs. The underscores have to be changed to "%20". If urlencode is used, a replace would still have to be done to switch the plus signs to "%20". -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:16, 24 November 2008 (EST)
            • Ah, I didn't know that + was disallowed.--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:21, 24 November 2008 (EST)
              • And I had forgotten about #urlencode. We both learned something! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:24, 24 November 2008 (EST)

Caged Bird vs Caged Bird, Part 1 - Category

Noticed that you renamed the GN appending , Part 1 to it. Cool, glad to see more are coming. I've been going through and updating all pages to now point append the Part 1 suffix. I updated the images as well, but I can seem to figure out how to either:

1) Move Category:Images from The Caged Bird ---> to ---> Category:Images from The Caged Bird, Part 1 or 2) Create this category (Category:Images from The Caged Bird, Part 1)...is that an admin only power?

Right now, all of the images from that GN are stranded in lah-lah land. What am I missing to get their Category:Images from The Caged Bird, Part 1 set up correctly? --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/25/2008 14:35 (EST)

  • Nevermind...I figured it out, I think. However, I did notice what appears to be a wiki bug. Here were the steps to recreate.
1) Before the new [ [Category:Images from The Caged Bird, Part 1]] was created, I went in and changed all of the edit-details of the images for it
from: { {image-screenshot|The Caged Bird=t}} to { {image-screenshot|The Caged Bird, Part 1=t}}...adding the ", Part 1" suffix.

2) Since the new Image Cat hadn't been created yet, of course the images didn't list the image cat at the bottom of their pages.

3) "After" the new [ [Category:Images from The Caged Bird, Part 1]] was created however, when I would go to any of the pictures, they still weren't showing the category at the bottom of the page.

4) I could go into edit-mode on those pics, preview, and without making any changes, the cat would now show at the bottom. (so I ended re-saving all of them without making any changes to them, to get their [ [Category:Images from The Caged Bird, Part 1]] to show at the bottom.) Sounds like a wiki refresh problem. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 11/25/2008 14:57 (EST)

Report

I would like to report User:Blairwitch46 for constant reeverting without discussion. Raiku 20:18, 25 November 2008 (EST)

  • Thanks. I'll take a look at Blairwitch46's history. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:20, 25 November 2008 (EST)
  • If you're referring to the couple of edits back and forth on the eclipse, I don't see much wrong with the edits Blairwitch46 has made, just as I don't really see anything wrong with the edits that you made. You have a difference of opinion as to what should or shouldn't be on the page. I applaud you for taking the issue to the talk page. One suggestion would be to leave a kind message on Blairwitch's talk page pointing him to the discussion. He's young and he's brand new to the site, so he might not know about the discussion pages or even how a wiki community works. I know I didn't when I first started editing wikis! As for the actual issue of including the information on the page or not, I'll leave my opinion at Talk:Eclipse#The Eclipse, Part 1. Thanks for bringing this to my attention! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:31, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Idea

You should make a fanstuff wiki, where fans can create fanstuff like email shows or comics and have fun. Raiku 20:47, 25 November 2008 (EST)

  • Not a bad idea! I actually don't know much about setting up a wiki myself--that's Admin who did that. Plus, I kind of dedicate my editing time just to one wiki--I figure if I'm going to do something, I may as well do it right and put my whole self into it. But if it's something you're serious about pursuing, you might want to talk to Admin about it. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:01, 25 November 2008 (EST)

User Raiku & Santiago's ability

He keeps adding Super Speed as one of Santiago's ability after it has been conclusively he doesn't have that ability. He cites NBC provided info that doesn't meet the canon nor even near-canon sources for information. --Snow Leapord 00:18, 26 November 2008 (EST)

  • I didn't think there was anything conclusive. The best information I found was in the latest Behind the Eclipse when Joe Pokaski and Aron Coleite said that Santiago has super speed as a byproduct of his accelerated probability. That's not a canon source, but it's excellent information and usually pretty reliable. Does that mean that he only has one ability? That's debatable. I look at it much like Brendan Lewis's dual ability--he has regeneration as a result of his plant manipulation. However, if you're looking for canon or near-canon sources, look no further than Create Your Hero, which is part of Heroes Evolutions. The description for Santiago is pretty explicit in saying he has two abilities: "He has the power of accelerated probability. Not only that but he realizes he can run super fast! Combined, the two abilities make him unstoppable." With all that information combined, I think we need to have Santiago's name on super speed and list both powers on Santiago's page (in the infobox, in the Abilities section, etc.) However, when we're linking the power from other pages, we should generally link to accelerated probability. We don't need to add many examples of Santiago's ability to the examples of super speed--I think just the mention on the power's main page is probably sufficient. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:36, 26 November 2008 (EST)
    • Have you actually watched the webisode? Webisode #3 said Accelerated Probability did three things, slow down time, show him the probabilities, & then accelerates him to probability he chooses. There is absolutely no evidence of him having Accelerated Probability & Super Speed. Webisodes trump some game NBC plays and the results they get. --Snow Leapord 08:08, 26 November 2008 (EST)
      • Yes, I have actually watched the webisode. Numerous times, in fact. There is no need for a "trumping" in this case because there is no conflicting information. They are in harmony. The Heroes Evolutions content which shaped the webisodes (Create Your Hero) specifically states that Santiago has two powers. The webisodes never say that he has only one power. The serious looking woman describes Santiago's power to him and explains some of the byproducts of it. That goes right along with what writers said in the latest Behind the Eclipse, that super speed is a byproduct of accelerated probability. We can't ignore one source because it's "some game"--it's a legitimate near-canon source with terrific information that gets reviewed, edited, and approved by the writing staff before it is published. No doubt Kay Foster and Adam Armus used that information to write the webisodes. The Santiago article is just as much an article about the character you see in the webisode as it is an article about the character created by Create Your Hero. Quite simply, we're using all the sources we're given (which are all really in harmony) to create a big picture of what we know: Santiago's power is called accelerated probability. It allows him to do the things we've seen and which SLW described. Super speed is a byproduct of his main ability. He has both of these powers. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:19, 26 November 2008 (EST)

GN + TV

If they appear in both, why not have them in both? If a new user's looking for info, they might not necessarily know where to link without at least a link pointing it out? --Matchu 00:50, 26 November 2008 (EST)

  • It's a hierarchy. Live actors and episodes are at the top of the list and graphic novel characters are lower down. If we have people multiple levels of the hierarchy, they get lost and people don't know where to find them. Really, the only reason we have a portal of characters from Daphne-related graphic novels is because if we put all 209 graphic novel characters in one portal, it would be huge. Imagine, then, adding all the characters who appeared in both graphic novels and in episodes. Yikes! And really, it would only be fair to extend that same dual portalship to places, location, abilities, items, etc. Now we're talking about adding any power that's ever been shown in a graphic novel to Portal:Graphic Novel Abilities. Any world location that's ever been featured in a graphic novel would be added to both Portal:Locations and Portal:Graphic Novel Locations. It continues... The bottom line is that there's no easy solution. Yes, you're right, new users sometimes get lost. I could make the same argument, though, that new users would get lost if we had each character in multiple portals. It would be like having parallel portals instead of a trickle-down hierarchy. ...... I don't know if any of that makes sense, I hope it does. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:00, 26 November 2008 (EST)
    • I personally would like things to be in all portals that apply to them, but I don't really use the portals so it doesn't matter too much. -Lөvөl 01:33, 26 November 2008 (EST)
    • I'm still struggling to see any logical reason not to. If a character appears in both, put them in both. It doesn't create excessive space (since navbars and such appear at the bottom of the screen). I mean, I don't get how people are more likely to not "know where to find them" if they're in both areas (areas which would then be linked to each other); not including characters on their respective "related story" portals makes it seem very disjointed. But I think you're wrong about the volume of work that would be added if we changed the rule. I'm stressing that only things that have appeared distinctly in both GN and TV should have dual status and that's a low number of things. --Matchu 09:29, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Sorry

sorry I just wanted to see if I could change something and it stay changed. I didn't know what I was doing.-SkylaRIOT 02:18, 26 November 2008

  • No problem. I had a feeling it was something like that, where you're just practicing editing. A good place to do that would be at Heroes Wiki:Sandbox, where you can make as many edits as you want, and it won't really affect the rest of the site too much. You can also edit your user page all you want with no serious consequences. We don't encourage practicing editing on "real" pages because people search for that information and it's important that it's always as current and accurate as possible. Thanks! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 07:57, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Patroller (II)

Hi Ryan - I wouldn't mind being a patroller - thanx for the confidence :) --Pierre 10:54, 26 November 2008 (EST)

  • I modified the header here so Ryan can find the post. There is another 'Patroller' topic on this page.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:58, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Alright

Hey, thanks for the heads up, I wasn't aware I guess. I'll rewrite the information a bit next time. On another note, could you please delete User:Radicell/Hypnokinesis? Apparently someone else had created the ability and at that time I thought it would be some fun thing to have a fan power, now I find no use of it. Thanks. Radicell 07:01, 27 November 2008 (EST)

User:Bentonyang

Surely his userpages are getting out of hand now, right? They're really inappropriate. See User:Bentonyang/Fecalkinesis, User:Bentonyang/Preference manipulation, and User:Bentonyang/Homosexuality for examples, as well as those related to those pages.--Riddler 16:10, 27 November 2008 (EST)

  • I was just gonna say...--NiveKJ13 18:23, 27 November 2008 (EST)
    • I am sorry that my pages have offended you and other users on Heroes Wiki. I do not mean to offend, it is not my intention. I will make the necessary changes to my pages even if it means removing them completely. I would like to add that I do have gay friends and that we're pretty comfortable talking about that stuff and kidding around. I just forgot that this is a web page and not just between friends. If you have anymore comments or concerns please write it on my user talk page. I really don't want to make enemies, it was simply a failed attempt a humor ad I apologize.--Bentonyang 19:47, 27 November 2008 (EST)
      • Thanks, Bentonyang. Your reaction to how you've offended other people is very reasonable and your apologies and intentions are more than acceptable. I left some suggestions and comments for you on your talk page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:02, 27 November 2008 (EST)

Maury Parkman Pics

Do you have any pictures of Maury Parkman?Cheers:)--Noah Bennet And The Whale 13:59, 28 November 2008 (EST)

Arthur's powers sources

I saw you changed the note about Arthur to reflect that we don't know where he got mental manipulation from. I don't really object to this (though I feel it's within acceptable speculation), but the same information would also have to be changed in his Evolved Human abilities section on his page. It lists him having gained mental manipulation from Peter there, as well as space-time manipulation, telekinesis and precognition (and we'd have to change the precognition source on Arthur's drawings page, and al of the references to where Arthur got the abilities on the power pages). If we're not assuming he got mental manipulation from Peter, we can't really say he got any of those from his son either, can we (I would think lightning is fine since that what he demonstrates upon stealing Peter's abilities, and possibly empathic mimicry since it was confirmed in an interview). I just wanted to get your opinion before doing all the changes. --Stevehim 21:07, 28 November 2008 (EST)

  • The only one I personally object to is mental manipulation since we've never seen Peter use it. We've seen Peter use all the rest of them. I don't mind if the note and the abilities section are changed to say "probably Peter", though. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:40, 28 November 2008 (EST)

User Pages

Hey there, now if i wanted to make a page just for me am i suppose to put "User:Anthony Gooch/" in front of it?--Anthony Gooch 01:15, 29 November 2008 (EST)

  • Yep! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:17, 29 November 2008 (EST)
    • Thanks, and another thing, is there a way to change my name without deleting all my stuff (my account, contributuions, watchlist ect.)?--Anthony Gooch 01:19, 29 November 2008 (EST)
      • No, I don't think so. (I've wanted to change my name to RyanGibsonStewart for awhile now.) You can ask Admin, though. He might give you more information...but I think people have asked in the past and have not been able to. :( -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:21, 29 November 2008 (EST)

Clarify

Hi, I thought that when we did the supporting/recurring cast overhaul thing, it was agreed that once a character has 3 appearances, he/she is considered "recurring character"? But on this page, you say that a character needs 4 appearances to be considered recurring. Has the standard changed, and what is the real standard right now? thanks. Radicell 23:43, 29 November 2008 (EST)

  • See here. It's four for Season One, three for Season Two, and right now it's three for Season Three. That's subject change if the portal for the recurring characters gets too big. We really should have a Help:Characters. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:48, 29 November 2008 (EST)
    • Does four for Season One have anything to do with its longer run?--Citizen 00:03, 30 November 2008 (EST)
      • Yep. Check out how three appearances compares with four appearances here. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:07, 30 November 2008 (EST)

Oh right, I had forgotten about our discussion over there. Thanks Radicell 02:15, 30 November 2008 (EST)
