FIRST you delete my Monty Python lines, THEN you delete the image I put as a joke on my user page....

DARNIT, you never let me have ANY fun. :))

AnthroSamurai 14:01, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

But I didn't, Higgs Raccoon did.
The reason why I removed the template was because while I did find it funny, it also caused your user page to show up in Category:Protected pages, which might cause some confusion.
Now, if you'd to include an image that looks like the protected template (like this one, or just copy and paste in the template code, I say go for it! Neither of those would cause any issues, and be rather amusing. --Douglas Muth 14:19, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Removed "short story" tag[edit]

Mwalimu, I removed the tag you put on "Tales from the Reservation" because it's definately NOT a short story - The site does not have the entire story transcribed yet. Shoot, there's 3 parts of the story, and part-I is still being transcribed (got 6 pages left to go).

LUCKILY, part-II is only 5 pages, while part-III is 9 pages - because if each part was 17 pages (like part-I is), by the time I got halfway through part-II I would be in a padded cell with my fingers all bandaged up :))

That's fine, if you wish to reassign it to a more appropriate category. Note, however, that Category:Stories is essentially an obsolete and unused category. Perhaps a more appropriate category to assign it to would be Category:Story series. --mwalimu 20:32, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

I take it there's no category for Science Fiction??? All hail VLADUZ - the EBAY IMPALER! 03:19, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

At present we do not have categories by genre for works of literature (or for any other types of work unless you count Mature as a separate genre). Although Category:Stories is unused, the text there is a guide of sorts for what category a story should be categorized in. --mwalimu 05:15, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Removal of contributions[edit]

You know, the end result of you removing your contributions is the loss of quality and content on this wiki - and someone will likely revert to the more desirable versions of those pages you "un-edit". As noted beneath every edit box, contributions are made under the GFDL, which essentially means that your alterations are considered open for the public good. Much as bad edits can be made good (see the history page for FurNation Worlds, specifically May 23 and 24 as an example of what happens to changes made in anger), so good edits can be retained through the diligence of any contributing party. I only have a special interest in diffs because I see those red !'s next to them, but I do have an interest in preserving good information. -- Siege(talk) 15:16, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

I never signed any waiver or release stating that I lose rights to what I post. If I choose to remove it, that should be my privledge. If this site was not so willing to overlook one of it's users pushing a vendetta (and using absolutely childs ways of doing it) I would not mind contributing. However, I refuse to promote, contribute, or otherwise assist such a site that does condone such.

NOW, if you wish to keep re-adding the information, I can sit here all day reverting it. If you wish to ban me for that, I can simply create a page else detailing exactly what is happening here and why I have removed my contributions. Then this site will quickly gain the same sullied reputation as it's parent - wikipedia.

The choice is yours.

All hail VLADUZ - the EBAY IMPALER! 16:59, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Contributions are not yours. If you spit in someone's coffee, you can't take it back out, can you? -- Brushwell T a l k 17:55, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Quote: I never signed any waiver or release . . . Answer: You don't lose your rights - we gain some! It's only an official policy, noted on every edit page (stuck beneath the text box and above the subject field), and included in the user agreement when you create an account:
Please note that all contributions to WikiFur are considered to be released under the GFDL (see WikiFur:Copyrights for details). If you don't want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then don't submit it here. (emphasis mine - I refer you again to WikiFur:Copyrights, which specifically covers this behavior)
I am not party to your complaint, and have no wish to be party to an edit war. I'm trying to be neutral here. However, I see this as childish behavior, destructive to the wiki and to yourself. I, personally, will not ban you today, but I am going to seek consensus with other Administrators on your behavior if it continues; and you may yet receive that ban. I would especially note that your recent comment to fellow editor Brushwell Clinton can be considered a threat, and if you want even a hint of support from me, you might want to apologize to him and/or remove it.
-- Siege(talk) 18:22, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Thank you SIEGE for showing that there ARE in fact double standards on wikifur.

Your directives are noted.... In this instance however, they are rejected. Should you be foolish enough to apply policy to me, while once again ignoring it in one of your own, then you will not only further prove that double standard, but can expect neither respect nor compliance.

Karma's a bitch.... And I act as her agent ;)

All hail VLADUZ - the EBAY IMPALER! 19:32, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh please. You're not above the law. None of us are. Stop acting like you are. You submitted something, now it can be edited ruthlessly. Including keeping it intact as you edited it. Spaz Kitty 03:23, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Yet you gleefully follow your master in her schemes, SPAZ. Of course, people like you - with rather limited intelligance - ALWAYS tend to blindly follow others, no matter if they're right or not. Your so willing to look the other way when your idol is doing something wrong, yet jump all over anyone who either calls them on it or mockingly immitates their actions.
Therefore, at this time I would have to classify you as an adversary.
All hail VLADUZ - the EBAY IMPALER! 10:58, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
...what the hell are you talking about? As for "limited intelligance" (sic -- ironic that you can't even spell 'intelligence' right, no?), I'd like to note that I was in gifted courses from kindergarten through high school. When I was tested back in 9th grade, my IQ was 120. I scored 1330 on the SATs. My GPA in high school was a 4.1 out of 4.0 (possible through advanced courses with extra "honors" credit available), and my GPA at UGA is a 3.4, and I made the Dean's List last fall. Who has limited intelligence, again? Don't talk down to me. Spaz Kitty 00:40, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
We are all agents of karma. I invite you to spell out your accusations and complaints, plain and clear in this space, so that we can confront them honestly and have done with this. -- Siege(talk) 14:10, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

First off Spaz, I too am laughing over that (I swear, unless I'm actually looking at the keyboard, from time to time my fingers seem to have a mind of their own - and WILL tend to deliberately hit the wrong keys :)) ) Does anyone happen to know of a good Exorcist??

Second, No matter who or what the article is about, there SHOULD be some sort of uniformity, and those who have a conflict with whoever/whatever the article is about should be discouraged from actively adding to it. As I have outlined before, that is pretty much the same as an officer conducting an investigation into a crime commited against them. Instead of being objective about it, the officer would be out for revenge - and where is the justice in that?

Though she may present herself as objective, and may even have the rest of you blinded to it, she DOES conitunally show signs that she IS in fact out to keep this conflict going. Allowing her to do so is a great disservice to wikifur. if you really want to see this place become the best that it can be, instead of jumping onher bandwagon you should at least try to make her see reason - and there IS a chance that she does not even realize herself what her true motivations are.

I WILL point out, first and formost, My own question "HE or SHE" - it was an honest question, as there was conflicting information and I wanted to know which was correct... not only for myself but for others who may come along and ALSO wonder. Ayuka's reaction was to claim I was "targeting" her for some unknown reason - which couldn't be further from the truth.

Oh, and Spaz? having a 4.1 grade average does not automatically make one smart.

)) Just look at a storm chaser named Reed for proof of that. :)) He's almost lost his life at least twice because - in spite of his college education - he doesn't have the sense to realize when a tornado is coming right at him until it's nearly too late :O

I'll be back in a few hours - have to finish waking up. (Unless of course another idiot get's their sailboat stuck on a sandbar AGAIN.)

All hail VLADUZ - the EBAY IMPALER! 12:08, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Speaking of intimidation, could we try to keep the toughguy talk to a minimum please? Using phrases like "it will be the biggest mistake of your life" are not going to help the situation any. Even if Ayukawataur is acting inappropriately, I'd like to ask that you not do the same. Thanks. --Douglas Muth 17:29, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry Douglas - Did not mean it to sound like I was trying to intimidate. I HAVE however dealt with people like her - they use any tactic, fair or foul, to get their way. I posted that so she knows that I'll fight back if she does, as I consider such to be extremely dishonest and do not stand for it.

Any suggestions on how I should reword it, to correct it so it's not mistaken?

All hail VLADUZ - the EBAY IMPALER! 17:36, 27 May 2008 (UTC)


Hello AnthroSamurai ,

This is in regards to Image:4262568584.jpg. It has not been tagged with a copyright status. This can be a complicated area, so I can try to help if you need any. The Wikipedia Image use policy may give some background, but it isn't policy here.

To deal with this image, there are a few choices:

  • If you are the copyright holder, release it under a free license, for example:
  • If you are asserting that this image is usable under fair use, add an appropriate fair use tag. A very basic summary is that fair use is used for commentary, criticism and review on the image when no free image could be used instead. Some fair use tags are:
    • Logos: {{logo}}
    • Covers: {{Cover}}
    • Comic panels: {{Comic-panel}}
  • If the image is already under a free license, provide information on the license, and tag the image if you can.
  • If you would like the image to be deleted, ask any administrator

To see a list of current copyright tags available on WikiFur, see Category:Image copyright tags If the copyright status is not resolved, the image may be deleted.

Unless you have a question for me specifically, I'd prefer responses on the page for the image. --Rat 20:49, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Questions about Cubist[edit]

I ask you, is there ANYTHING in my post that could be considered an attack on Cubist? And do you know of any reason why Cubist would choose to launch an attack upon me?

All hail VLADUZ - the EBAY IMPALER! 17:31, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

The simplest conclusion is that he is being honest - that the reason for his assertion is he believes you to be a concern troll. I don't see any reason to suggest that he is implying that you made an attack on him - just that he strongly disagrees with you and suspects your motives. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:03, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

QUOTE CUBIST: Shorter 'Vladuz': "If we don't remove Mozdoc's real name from his Wikifur page, the terrorists win!" Overblown histrionics much, V-boy?

All hail VLADUZ - the EBAY IMPALER! 18:06, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Right. He believes that your statements are overblown histronics. The form of his expression might be considered an attack on you, but does not imply that he felt that you attacked him, as you said. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:08, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

"A concern troll is a false flag pseudonym created by a user whose point of view is opposed to the one that the user's sockpuppet claims to hold. The concern troll posts in web forums devoted to its declared point of view and attempts to sway the group's actions or opinions while claiming to share their goals, but with professed "concerns". The goal is to sow fear, uncertainty and doubt within the group."

Excuse me a moment... (Falls out of chair laughing).

Ok, so let me get this straight - because I am TRYING to to get both sides to stand down to some degree, Cubist is claiming that I am Mozdoc using a second account???? Oh good lord, not ANOTHER person like "triple W" :)) Why is it anytime someone doesn't agree, they have to claim that the person they disagree with is a "sock"???? That is really pathetic, do you not think?

All hail VLADUZ - the EBAY IMPALER! 18:14, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

No, that is not the meaning of the term. He appears to believe that you do not actually support the same goals as the wiki, but are trying to subvert them by pretending that you do. For example, if giving people fair treatment was one of the goals of the wiki you might express concerns that Mozdoc is not getting fair treatment, thereby hoping to elicit sympathy from those who would otherwise have a neutral or negative opinion. The trouble with making such assertions is that people's motives are unknown to us without some external form of confirmation, therefore they are hard to prove or disprove. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:31, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Mozdoc needs to learn to control his temper - I can sympathize with that. I also know how most of society can literally drive people like Mozdoc to such actions.

By only using punishment against him, we only further reinforce his behavior. That's not to say we should just give in and remove it to stop threats - just the opposite. HOWEVER, If it is removed, and you and the others make it CLEARLY known that 1 - it CAN be added in again should the threats resume. 2 - that it is being done for fairness sake.

I believe it will have a greater positive impact not only on the conflict but upon Mozdoc himself.

By the way, kindly take a look at my user page ;) :)) That should (hopefully) show we are two different peole - Mozdoc tends to simply open fire, wjile I tend to toy with those who make such pathetic attacks.

So I am a SOCK?? WHY am I always the last to know these things? :)) 18:52, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

As far as I know, the only person who has brought up the concept of you being the same person as Mozdoc is you. The assertions made by Cubist relate to the pursuit of similar goals, not similar identity.
I am unsure how much any of us can help Mozdoc. I've talked to him on several occasions and made no long-term progress. The whole reason the page is here in the first place is that counseling hasn't worked to stop the harassment of others in the fandom. As I understand it, its purpose isn't to coerce the subject into good behaviour (because punishment doesn't work), but to ameliorate the effects of his bad behaviour on others. The question is whether or not the real name is a requirement for this. --GreenReaper(talk) 19:32, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Threats do not belong on WikiFur[edit]

Regarding this edit, threats do not belong on this Wiki. I'm not sure what the conflict is between Cubist and yourself, but I suggest you find another battleground if you wish to make statements like that. --Douglas Muth 14:56, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

IM and flames from this user[edit]

Between IMs like this:

(12:47:41 PM) aysakiansamurai: As far as I am concerned, you, Ayuka, Spazkitty, Cubist, and all of wikifur in general can suck my dick, then fuck off and die. All you assholes are doing is using the shit to further anteagonize Mozdoc - and it's your own fault if he winds up going postal on your asses.

and comments like this, it suggests to me that this user is more interested in stirring up trouble here than actually contributing. I'm just sayin'. --Douglas Muth 17:31, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Well, if you dickheads were'nt so hell bent on screwing with people then you wouldn't have so many people who hate you.
If you want to fuck with people, you'd better expect people to fuck with you. ;)
So I am a SOCK?? WHY am I always the last to know these things? :)) 20:11, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
