Hey there. Thanks for updating the wiki...but it's our policy not to place spoilers on pages that don't have "Spoiler" in the title. Please do not post anything about unaired episodes on pages that are not spoiler pages. Thanks! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:03, 27 September 2008 (EDT)
- Hey there again. Our policy is still to not put spoilers on pages that don't have "Spoiler" in the title. If you would like to put a spoiler about somebody's power that has not yet been shown in an episode, that information could go on Spoiler:Heroes. Of course, to go under the Published Spoilers section, it would need to have been published, and you would need to reference to published spoiler somehow--otherwise it would go under the Fan Theories section. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:11, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Hey, just a quick heads up. If you change something on a page and it gets undone, it generally means there was something there that shouldn't have been there. If your revision gets undone, try not to redo it without posting on the talk page of the respective article. Thanks.--Riddler 17:06, 27 September 2008 (EDT)
Power theft versus ability theft
I noticed you changed a lot of articles to have the link to power theft. This link is a redirect to ability theft, so it's unnecessary to change the link, especially since the link is piped to display other text. --16:09, 29 September 2008 (EDT)
Matt did display this ability
He did. Thats most obvious. His eyes turn white and he looks all around. Or do i have to send you a screenshot to prove it?
- Did we see him paint or see the future? No, we saw his eyes turn white. That's all we saw. This is not evidence of using the ability. See talk:precognition, where even I pondered over this.-- 14:21, 30 September 2008 (EDT)
Can I have more info please? Do you work for NBC or somthing?--Skywalkerrbf 05:20, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
- You seem to have a interest in this article, any reason?--Skywalkerrbf 16:32, 11 October 2008 (EDT)
Hey Skywalkerrbf. I don't work for NBC but one of my friends does.
- Hey, who is your friend?--Skywalkerrbf 08:15, 12 October 2008 (EDT)
Hey, Skywalkerrbf. My friend being my cousin. He works within the digital effects department.
- Cool, as you can see from the top I have got some interviews with some of the team already, does he have a page on the wiki?--Skywalkerrbf 09:24, 12 October 2008 (EDT)
I've checked and he doesn't. I'm not very sure why he doesn't have a page on Wiki.
- make him one :)--Skywalkerrbf 13:16, 12 October 2008 (EDT)
Some edit stuff
I've noticed recently that you make edits that are, for a lack of better terms, unfounded, then you continually revert edits when someone removes your speculative edits. Regardless of whatever source you're getting your information from, it doesn't matter, because our content derives from what has been aired on screen. If you have a source for spoilers, you need to have that information published, then you can cite it on a spoiler page. But with regards to things like Stephen Canfield's power, it really doesn't matter about the wording of his ability because he hasn't even demonstrated it. So if we don't see his ability on screen anyway, his ability will remain "none" until we see something, because it's just speculative. If you have a question, let me know. Thanks.--13:56, 12 October 2008 (EDT)
Hi there. You seem to have some pretty strong feelings about the name of Canfield's ability, as most of your edits have been about that subject. Your claims have also been unsupported, as mentioned a few times above. You asked more than once what exactly you have to do to make us all see that what you're adding is true. MiamiVolts gave you the first step: discuss it at Talk:Vortex creation. Your talk page is not the place to discuss the name, but I'll just give you the brief reason: Meredith reads a Company file that says Canfield can create vortexes. Hence, the name we give the power derives from that: vortex creation. I suggest you read Help:Naming conventions and familiarize yourself with the section about ability names. Remember, we always use canon sources above everything else--that includes common names in comic books and other works, scientific names for phenomena, our own speculation and theories and interpretations, and even words from cast and crew members in interviews and the like. Now, if Canfield's assignment tracker page comes out and it lists his ability, we will use that name, whether it's perfect or not. After having digested all that, if you'd still like to discuss it at talk:vortex creation, please feel free. Thanks. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:27, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Ok kk, Ryan. I'm sorry. It's just i have been telling everyone this for several weeks and no one believes me thus my work is not appreciated and just discarded. --ACDC1989 04:29, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
- No, it's not that your work is not appreciated, it's that it's unfounded and unsupported. I still have no idea who your cousin is, and as much as I'd like to believe what you're saying, I have no basis for what you're claiming. Even if your cousin were Tim Kring, the information you're adding still needs to be cited somehow. It also should stay in the Notes section since it's not directly from an episode, a graphic novel, or other such content. And to be honest, it's not that anybody is discarding your information, we're trying to get you to give us background and to go through the proper channels. I would hate for you to discard the sound advice others have given you about discussing the topic at talk:vortex creation, or discarding the advice about supporting your claims. If you would like me to explain anything further, or if you have any questions, by all means, please let me know. Thanks. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:35, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Ok, Ryan. I really appreciate your comments. I will do all i can in giving you a greater amount of knowledge on specific information. Thanks =)--ACDC1989 05:09, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
- Great. I don't want you to think that anybody is ignoring you or purposely deleting your edits for personal reasons. We're "trained" to be catalogers and archivers here at Heroes Wiki. In doing such, we also put sources for our information, as much as possible. It's the wiki way. :) Don't take it personally, just understand where people are coming from, and we'll all get do just fine. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:40, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
No problem:)--ACDC1989 06:41, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
If you know somebody who works for Heroes and would like to share that information, it belongs in the Notes section of a page. It also should have your cousin's name and some context to it. I have interviewed a couple of writers and other creators, and no matter how official their information might sound, it's not official if it's not directly from the show or other content. Outside information generally is confined to the notes and definitely needs support, context, and the source's name at the very least. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 04:31, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Ok kk thanks alot Ryan. I sent you a message on your Talk about something i'd like to create. Thanks --ACDC1989 06:48, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Spoiler as theories
You really shouldn't put spoilers disguised as theories in non spoiler pages, such as It's Coming. Intuitive Empath 15:08, 12 November 2008 (EST)
I'm not sure exactly what you're talking about. I never removed any theories from anywhere concerning Baron Samedi, especially considering there is no theory page for him. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 07:14, 9 December 2008 (EST)
- Hey. Oh no problem at all. I understand:) --ACDC1989 09:31, 9 December 2008 (EST)
- Oh. I'm sorry what a terrible mistake on my part. Again sorry. --ACDC1989 06:34, 10 December 2008 (EST)
