Type here if you want to talk to me >:3

  • - As we can currently see from the "orange-glow" that occurs when he touches an evolved human, he takes their power until he is exposed to another power (through physical contact).

When Arthur was shot by Peter (yet the bullet was actually let go and launched, by Sylar) we saw Arthur on the floor with an orange-glow surrounding him as if his power was leaking out of him. What I suspect in my theory is that Peter saw his dad as the strongest of them all and wanted to be the same because he thought Peter was a disgrace, this changed his genes (or the glow affected his genes) and his new ability from the formula is most likely Power Absorption but with the ability to do it without permanently taking the ability.

He can use the ability of anyone he physically touches (even without knowing it) and loses it when in contact with another ability, I guess he has Power Absorption but in an early stage where he can't manifest it correctly. After-all Arthur had just telepathy because he probably couldn't manifest more than one ability and mentally taught himself how to take more than one? If he doesn't have power absorption, then he has Power Mimicry (via physical touch). --Arkillion 10:24, 10 February 2009 (EST)

(Just so I can put it somewhere later).


As I guess you have found out by now, I have blocked you for three days so you could cool down. You have repeatedly cleared out other people's user pages and a section of Talk:Empathic mimicry, and you had been warned more than once not to do so. You also were repeatedly uploading another image without first discussing it on the related talk page as you had been asked to do so. All of those things constitute vandalism. I was lenient because you have contributed for several months and this is your first block. I hope that you can take the opportunity to return and act responsibly, remaining a constructive part of our community. However, if you return and repeat any of these actions, you will most likely be blocked permanently.--MiamiVolts (talk) 16:15, 12 February 2009 (EST)


The character images are to be of the right size (200x250px), and we try to stay away from .png files. That's the reason we won't use Image:Alex.png. Feel free to upload a better quality pic of Image:Alex.jpg if you like to, though! Thanx for understanding :) --Pierre 07:54, 17 February 2009 (EST)

  • all my PNG images are still PNG images but with the scaling fixed, the image will be fixed by someone later (Ryangibsonstewart) has put it on his to do list as I can't scale images to a specific size. --Arkillion 07:56, 17 February 2009 (EST)
    • You have to let me know, though. My to do list has items on it that have literally been there for years. I'll gladly rescale or reformat images for you, but I need to know specifically which ones. If you could save the Alex image as a jpg and then reupload it over Image:Alex.jpg, that would help tremendously, rather than uploading a new image that has to be deleted later on--if I remember to catch it. Thanks, Arkillion! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:02, 17 February 2009 (EST)
      • Usually using paint and JPG doesn't mix well, kind of like paint and a shirt >_>... But okay.. Also since I was "vandalising" the empathic mimicry page with the precognition image (since it looks way way better) I've stopped and started to write recaps again (The one you see is all mine, took me a while >_>). Didn't you used to do synopsis' when they were on TV? Well someone did and I used to wake up every morning with the whole summary of the episode, now I don't :( --Arkillion 08:04, 17 February 2009 (EST)
        • Image:Alex2.jpg - Done. --Arkillion 08:06, 17 February 2009 (EST)
          • Please mind your language. And not only is Alex2.jpg in the wrong format, it also include a watermark, wích need to be removed. Please behave. --Pierre 08:22, 17 February 2009 (EST)
            • Language? I'm not swearing? I said open your eyes because clearly you're not looking. I think ANYONE would rather have an image that has a GOOD QUALITY and doesn't look like he's just blinked or been pixelated then the current image there is. And a watermark is nothing serious, it can be removed, LATER. --Arkillion 08:23, 17 February 2009 (EST)
        • I would generally discourage using MS Paint. Not a very good program for image editing, to be frank. Try Gimp instead. To answer your other question, I've never done a synopsis for an episode. Admin did most (or all?) of the first season synopses. I've certainly helped edit them. I'm a slow and laborious writer, so I tend to stick to the editing. But I've been a bit more involved with work in the past year or so, and I know Admin has duties at work too. The summary is good. You'll want to make sure you are very detailed in your summaries to make sure that the quality matches those of past episodes. Almost like a play-by-play. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:21, 17 February 2009 (EST)
          • On the first time watching it I decided to write every bit of detail with grammar, spelling and punctuation and did a small check on it afterwards and then posted it, people have corrected certain issues I'm too lazy to work out, considering I did the whole synopsis, made like 4 pages and added alot of images :P --Arkillion 19:16, 17 February 2009 (EST)
            • I only use paint to size my images, then I go and do the actual editing in this knockoff Photoshop thing called Picture it Photo 7.0. Not Photoshop, but it works fairly well. -- Psilaq R.- \m/ -_- \m/-

Marked for deletion

  • Hi, Arkillion. You can't just remove a legitimate AfD template from a page. It must be discussed and removed after consensus is reached. Thanks. (Admin 10:10, 24 February 2009 (EST))
    • Sorry, I just dislike my images being taken, resized and anything I've done to be tossed out the boot, I apologize on this case because HiroDynoSlayer uploaded them before me, but I've had other images uploaded, to be copied, deleted and re-uploaded by someone else, I apologize. --Arkillion 10:14, 24 February 2009
      • Might I give a gentle reminder that once an image is uploaded to the wiki, it becomes a public image. There is no "my" image. I have done the majority of the deleting of images on this site; when deleting a duplicate image, I simply look to see which image is of better quality. If they are of the same or similar quality, I look at which one is already in use. I don't think I've ever really paid attention to when an image was uploaded and certainly not who uploaded it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:37, 24 February 2009 (EST)

Matt's Drawings images from Cold Wars

Not sure why you chose to replace the original Matt Drawing pictures I uploaded last night. I uploaded those pictures hours before you did, with proper category stamps, no watermarks, and proper size standardization. Your pictures were later duplicates, some of which contained watermarks, were not standard sized, and and did not contain proper category stamps. Be careful when uploading new images to be sure that others have not already done so, and especially don't just ramdomly decide to overlay other previously uploaded gallery images with the same pictures that are not properly uploaded to standards. I am reverting again back to the original images from last night's episode. If we can get hi-def images (later when they begin to appear) they would be a better alternative to replacing the original caps. Until then, the original standard caps should remain. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 02/24/2009 10:12 (EST)

    • Sorry but your images are of insanely low quality, even when mine were JPG they're ALOT higher quality then yours, I need a resizer program since Photoshop won't install on my computer and I'd do it myself, because I keep getting every image I upload taken and then resized with no credit given like User:Psilaq Remake
      • I just re-upped 3 of the pictures, tweaking the contrast and brightness to be a little sharper. However, the frames available were so limited, we won't have any incredible sharp pictures available until the hi-def caps start to become available. When that happens, I'll gladly be the first one to replace what I uploaded. As far as 'getting credit'...were not hear to get credit for non-standard image's not a contest. We should be solely concerned with uploaded the best, and most properly formatted and standardized pictures we can aquire. If software constraints limit you from properly formatting images to standard, then you might consider refraining from uploading images until you rectify your software editing deficiencies, and consider simply making posts to the Requested Screen Captures page for now. (Also remember to sign all of your posts.) --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 02/24/2009 10:25 (EST)
        • I thought I signed it because I included a User but I guess not. What do you mean by "Hi Def" caps anyway? I torrented the episode since I don't live in America and I had it by the morning (1AM for Americans and 7AM for myself) and that's where I took the screenshots from? And I appreciate the advice, but I'm egotistical so NYAH! :P --Arkillion 10:27, 24 February 2009 (EST)
          • High - Definition. ;)--IotV 10:29, 24 February 2009 (EST)
            • I know what High Definition is, I was just wondering what he meant by "Hi-Def" as in image-wise, like some sort of Blu-Ray screenshot? Lol --Arkillion 11:34, 24 February 2009 (EST)
  • Just a gentle reminder to all who are uploading images--the standard size for images of art (such as Matt's drawings or 9th Wonders! panels) is simply to be full size. Artwork that is 200 x 250, or 450 x 350, are not standard size. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:40, 24 February 2009 (EST)

Cold Wars page...

I don't think there's a need to write that in it - the discussion page is fine. ;)--IotV 10:37, 24 February 2009 (EST)

Second block

I blocked you for removing comments of others, and even after you have been warned. See here. I just saw that this is the second time that you have been blocked, both for the same thing. I will be extending your block beyond the three day "warning" period. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:40, 25 February 2009 (EST)
