Hi there, Brody, and welcome to WikiFur! Thank you for your recent contributions - let me know if you need any help not already provided. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 08:45, 6 February 2006 (UTC)


To answer your question, reverting involves going to the previous version of a page by clicking on the appropriate date in the history page, editing that and then saving it. Administrators have a rollback link that allows them to roll back all of a user's sequential contributions easily, but anyone can revert. --GreenReaper(talk) 09:29, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Here's a step by step for manual reverting for yee. :)

  1. From the article page, click the History tab.
  2. Click the link made up of the date/time of the last good version.
  3. That version is displayed in full with little previous version, next version links. Read the page and check its the right one.
  4. Click that version's Edit this page tab.
  5. You'll see an edit page with the warning: WARNING: You are editing an out-of-date revision of this page. If you save it, any changes made since this revision will be lost.
  6. Scroll to the bottom and fill in to the edit summary suitable comments to say you are reverting and the reasons why. Eg: Revert due to vandal or Reverting due to unchecked facts, please cite a source.
  7. Save the page and the old version will be restored as a new edit.

TMI on Wikifur![edit]

What's the policy on people just making vain, overly-attentive sites on Wikifur? Some of these people are really just putting too much trivial information on their own site. Here's an example. I want to just start deleting out obviously vain, purposeless data, but I don't know the policy on it. Yeah, I know, we all want to see our name on the web, I am guilty of it too, but I feel like there is a line being crossed here. --Brody 15:42, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

To quote DuncanDaHusky on another talk page, WikiFur has no problem with vanity pages. As long as everything said is factual and non-biased, it's more or less allowed. Anything that's obviously not encyclopediac, however, such as friends lists, personal opinions/claims ("the best _____"), and the like, should be moved to the person's user page, if applicable.

FAOD sexual orientation poll?[edit]

Last year one of your edits to Homosexuality article included that FAOD did a sexual orientation poll (FAOD = Furry Army of Doom?). I was hoping you knew the URL of that poll and could add it to the Homosexuality article. --EarthFurst 16:37, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

No problem. Updated the Furtopia numbers too, since the poll is still open. Thinking about researching the story of how that guy (Merlino?) brought the gay community to CF early on as a possible theory to put on the page. -- Brody 9/5/07

Creator of first Furry Musicians panel?[edit]

After thinking about the Musical Furs panel I ran at Anthrocon in 2000, I was wondering if there was any furry musicians panel before that time. (All I saw before that was masquerade performances.) It's something I'd add to my page if so.

Damn right, I'll take credit if I can. -- Brody 9/5/07

RCFM charity figures?[edit]

Hi Brody - would you able to give more exact figures for RCFM's charity donations? We're trying to get this article published, but RCFM's figures for all years but 2006 are imprecise. I sent you an email on this just prior to the New Year, but I think it may have got junk-filed. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 23:17, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

I did get it, just been really really busy, so sorry. Feels like *I* have been junk filed! :) Brody 19:26, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
No worries, I knew you guys would likely be busy with the con and other matters. Good luck climbing out of that junk folder. *grin* --GreenReaper(talk) 22:03, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Here's what I have so far - 2003 $550, 2004 "Just over" $1,000, 2005 "Just over" $1,200, 2006 $1,364, 2007 "Just over" $2,000. The approximations occur because small amounts of money are often given directly to Joel (the PCDS rep) without the Treasurer (me) ever seeing it. For example, the count of $1738 in 2007 was increased with an impassioned plea at Closing Ceremonies, a hat was passed around, and we reached 2k. The money was given directly to Joel and that's the last I saw of it. I'm currently contacting Joel to see if he has the exact numbers. Brody 14:55, 5 March 2008 (UTC)


Hello Brody,

This is in regards to Image:RCFMhotelDriveway.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 03:15, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
