This article is a current featured article candidate. A featured article should exemplify WikiFur's very best work, and is therefore expected to meet several criteria. Please feel free to leave comments.

Information deletion[edit]

Why was the following line rolled back? "Uncle Kage also has been confirmed to own a character named [information deleted]." --Verix 09:56, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Because it is a rumor. Check the history of the edits. If it has been confirmed the real, quote a credible soure. --Wesha.
Or better yey, don't! ;-) I have reasonable cause to believe that the individuals behind each name do not want them to be associated with one another. Whether or not it is true that they are one and the same, if the player wants the character to be separate, we should respect that unless there is an overriding need for them to be associated (see Sibe for an example of that). I do not know of such a need in this case.
WikiFur is already being indexed by search engines, and it is important that we consider the potential effects of that on people's ability to remain anonymous. We don't want to hurt people. --GreenReaper(talk) 13:32, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
'Once you've opened can of worms, the only way to contain them again is to use a larger can'. If you can egoogle (ego + google) enough already, why worry about yet another article? I always said it's quite stupid to attempt to seal a crack in a dam with your thumb. --Wesha.
Ahh, but a thumb is all I have. I can but try. :-) Besides, this place gets a lot more traffic than places you mention, and not only by those specifically searching for information. --GreenReaper(talk) 08:21, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

The way I see it, Kage is so open about this connection that it's going to be added to his page every few changes. You might want to lock it to prevent this being a long term change/revert cycle. --

I don't personally know how open he is about any connection that there might be between the characters concerned. However, if it is not his wish that this connection be advertised online (and given the evidence I'll assume that until told otherwise by him), then I will endeavour to ensure that that happens. If that means reverting it every so often and leaving an explanation on the user's page, so be it. I would rather leave the page open for other useful edits that might be added than stop any edits being made by non-admins. Moreover, protecting a page just makes people wonder why it's protected, which defeats the whole point. :-)
I'd note that anyone who does add it would be going against the wishes specified as a comment in the wiki text itself. --GreenReaper(talk) 08:14, 21 Aug 2005 (UTC)

"Grandpa Kage is his FATHER!"[edit]

Doh! >.< Sorry. Spirou 02:56, 6 Oct 2005 (UTC)

They should do a skit featuring that. I'm sure someone who goes to AC has some Darth gear. ;-) --GreenReaper(talk) 03:50, 6 Oct 2005 (UTC)
"My God!,...It's full of Kages!." Spirou 04:12, 6 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Nah - Grandpa Kage is a quiet, unassuming gentleman. Grandma Kage will kick yer ass, though :-) --Duncan da Husky 13:11, 6 Oct 2005 (UTC)

A Jack cameo?[edit]

Very recently an arc in the comic strip Jack was put up which featured a cockroach in a labcoat (or what looked like one) delivering a small speech at a wedding, even having a drink of wine from a martini glass and being called Kage by name by the groom and the bride. I am not sure however, if this would be placed in this article or in the Jack comic article.

The arc in question which features what might be a cameo starts on this strip and so far goes up to this one. It adds a little humor as Giza thought it was an unusually accurate portrayal and especially since Kage couldn't remember what he said in the speech after he finished saying it, probably because he might have been drunk. --Markus 14:42, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

I think it would be most appropriate in Jack, perhaps along with a list of the other cameos present in the comic, but I could see it being mentioned in passing here as well (it's probably not the only comic for which this has happened). Considering the comic's theme, I'm amazed he managed to go five pages without dying in some horrible manner. ;-p --GreenReaper(talk) 16:14, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Uncle Kage=Rogue?[edit]

This edit made my jaw drop. Should this page mention that Rogue is also Kage? ANFKL 17:27, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

It already does. My personal opinion is much the same as it was five years ago: if they are not widely linked online, they should probably remain that way unless there is a clear reason to link them. But I'm curious to know what others think on the topic. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:00, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
It's definitely something worth mentioning, and I don't think he's trying to keep it a secret, so I don't see why this page should avoid it. ANFKL 19:53, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
It was confirmed to me by an FA admin, though I made sure to also find evidence in order to back up the claim. SilverserenC 21:16, 12 July 2010 (UTC)
I'm inclined to agree to ANFKL. It doesn't seem to be much of a well-kept secret, so I think it's worth keeping. Plus, Silver Seren did his homework and supplied a reference link to support the claim.--Higgs Raccoon 21:53, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Does Kage have an FA account (not counting Rogue)? ANFKL 17:56, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

I would expect not, since Kage is always going on about how FA is bad and there's way too much sex and things like that. Having an FA account in his name would make him a hypocrite. ...well...more of one than he already is, at least. SilverserenC 18:02, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Opinion on topic: Maybe the owners of the characters like to keep them separated for personal reasons? Or perhaps to ensure they can still have fun every once in awhile, too. TalynWuff 19:03, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
