I'm skeptical of this use of fonts and borders to alter the look and feel of the page. For one thing, it might override a particular user's preferences and browser settings, which could be quite an issue if, for instance, someone has to use larger type because they are visually impaired. Should this sort of thing be encouraged, or would it be better to stick closer to the look and feel of most other articles on the site? I'm particularly skeptical of the "To contact Shiek" pop-up on the bottom of the screen. Finally, some of the content here might be more appropriate for the contributor's user page rather than the article, such as the list of IRC channels. What do others think? --mwalimu 15:39, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Mm, I've not edited any font sizes on the page, all are the default size and should change varying on the preferences the user has set.
The popup on the bottom of the screen again is Wiki-Markup and shouldn't effect the users in anyway. Though I admit I'm treating the article more as a userpage than an article, but if this was on my user page it would be harder to find seeing as my username was not made available to me to choose.
As I am aware though, the markup used should not alter preferences. [S]hiekky talk 15:49, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
I don't really like it (the styling or the fixed position link). This isn't a homepage. You set <span style="font-size:90%">. This plus the border makes it look different from every other page about a person. --GreenReaper(talk) 21:23, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Personally, I think this sort of stuff should be kept to user pages, if allowed at all. I'm typically of the opinion that content/profile pages should follow the formatting of the sites they're hosted by, and we probably don't want Wikifur to turn into a Myspace-esque formatting frenzy. --Natasha Softpaw 22:05, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Exclusion request ?[edit]

We don't have a dated deletion template on WikiFur, but if I'm interpreting that edit correctly, the subject of this article has requested exclusion. -- Sine 18:13, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

The subject of this article added deletion tag "I myself wish to no longer have this page that shows information to me ...". I think we should take take that as a request for exclusion from WikiFur. --EarthFurst 09:32, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
