Alex A. Fawkes
Since you edited Alex A. Fawkes, I was wondering if you knew where the Alex A. Fawkes comic was. Due to what Scaramouche says, I'm wondering if both the articles are hoaxes. --EarthFurst 09:00, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
- No idea, sorry, I was probably just copy-editing. -- Sine 20:40, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
Articles (the grammar, not the reading material) (A, of, the, etc.), except at the beginning of the title of something, should never be capitalized.
I could be wrong, but you should check a textbook just to be sure.
- I checked englishplus.com and the site says ".. Capitalize all the other words except for a, an, the, .. and prepositions of four letters or fewer." reference.com says "for" is a preposition so lower-case "a" and "for" they should be. --EarthFurst 05:41, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Just a reminder, with dead links, it may be worthwhile to check http://web.archive.org to see if an archive link would be suitable (or a note in the edit summary saying that an archive version was not found or was not suitable). --Rat 21:17, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
Hi. I just wanted to make sure you were aware that WikiFur:Noticeboard was recently opened. Your input on any open topics would be appreciated, and please feel free to open new topics as you see fit. --mwalimu 04:36, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Regarding your recent edit to Midwest FurFest 2013, do we really want to get into the practice of listing the dealers who were at a particular convention? It seems to me like going to a level of detail that not many readers would be that interested in and which adds clutter to the article. If some dealer's appearance at a convention is particularly notable for some reason it could still be included, but I don't see why that would be the case with a couple of the dealers you've already listed. --mwalimu 09:30, 3 December 2013 (EST)
- Thought since convention articles list specific events (including shows, panels etc) that listing dealers would also be of interest. Plus the ones that are redlinks let others know which ones don't have articles yet. --EarthFurst 13:32, 3 December 2013 (EST)
- I tend to agree that this information is unlikely to be of particular interest to readers after the convention unless certain dealers were notable by their presence. It might be more interesting to have it on the article about the dealer, so that fans have an idea what conventions they are likely to be at in the future, just as some articles record convention attendance. Even more useful would be to add every dealer to WikiFur, as almost all are likely to be of interest to furries and many may be new up-and-coming artists who we should have articles on. --GreenReaper(talk) 16:12, 3 December 2013 (EST)
Categories in DPL
I hacked in a fix for categories in DPL results. The existing version of DPL was doing something specifically weird and I'm not sure why - the code is hideous. There's a newer version from a different maintainer who's been trying to clean it up, but it doesn't fix that specific problem and adds more breakage right now, so I'm avoiding it until things improve. The front page should work once the DPL cache times out. --GreenReaper(talk) 17:29, 22 April 2015 (EDT)
Artist collectives category
- Thanks for asking. GreenReaper pointed out "They are not individual artists, as is implied for that category." So removing those collectives articles from Category:Artists would be appropriate. --EarthFurst 02:12, 4 August 2015
Hello, I am "Akonite" and noticed you have a page on me using that name.
"Akonite" is a business name I use outside the fandom. I have changed all my fandom names recently to protect my business interests outside the fandom (it was my mistake to use the name in the first place). I don't mind being on the site, but would prefer to be listed under "Kubaryi" which is my fandom name. Current internet search results have damaged some business contacts and I would like to resolve that. I am also currently resolving the name issue on other fandom sites.
I have left the name up on my weasyl page so you can see it's me and see the transition I'm making. https://www.weasyl.com/~akonite

Removal of Wolfie Stonespirit from Wikifur
I was wondering if we could please remove the Wolfie Stonespirit page from Wikifur as well as any mentioning of Wolfie Stonespirit from any wiki page? I know I'm mentioned on Keba's page and Brown Leopard's page. My records were sealed and therefore I don't have a criminal record, so would like any mentioning of me to please be removed. I started my life fresh from scratch and this has popped up a couple of times preventing me from gaining employment a few times. Please if.if can be removed I'd appreciate it! ~Wolfie —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 00:40, 9 July 2018
I want this down. ~Vespian
Hi, partner. I want the page written about me taken off. 99% of it is inaccurate/has changed and I not once got permission from anyone to be added among your site's pages. I've long been aware of my addition here, but I've moved on so too should my information. Specifically so with its inaccuracy. Vespian's turned over a new leaf.
I've attempted editing the page merely to wipe clean of its contents but it was restored with fingers pointing back to a curator such as yourself. I know next to nothing about this website or its mechanics, so tell me what I have to do to get my article taken off.
Hi I have created two species Sycrows And zenixs and would like to have a page showing them. How do I do this? To reply email me Mr.email@example.com Thank you —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2a00:23c4:a207:6400:1892:87ca:2e1e:7c82 (talk • contribs) 10:40, 11 November 2018

Requesting removal of Dakota Jaymes page
Hello there, Dakota here. It's been a while, a few years actually, but I wanted to ask if I can have my page https://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Dakota_Jaymes removed or blanked. Given the state of the internet, recent developments, and risks of doxxing, I feel that this page no longer serves it's purpose.

Concerning Badhedgehog's page

Removal of Drakonman The Fox
Hi I am the real drakonman the fox, the page that was created about me is extremely inaccurate and not actually created by myself. in fact, i attempted to delete some of this in the past by myself however it was later restored. (it was created by a former friend who used it as an attempt to try and harass me) and I wish it would be removed. Please and thank you. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs) 01:19, 23 November 2019
Hi! Nice to meet you EarthFurst! I been contributing to WikiFur for weeks. I had been harassed by an unknown person for no reason when I was editing FURUM that I had attended from FURUM 2017 & FURUM 2018. Not only that, I also asked information from FURUM staffs & attendees that attended from FURUM 2015 - FURUm 2018 to confirm that my informations are correct. Can you block this person (Chaishen) permanently? I couldn't take his harassment! - Tabyhunterwolf (talk) (30 November 2019 1:50 PM Malaysia Time)

I am trying to create an account, and no matter how many times I answer that ridiculous captcha it tells me it's wrong. I even broke out a calculator to make sure my math was accurate, yet I get "Incorrect" on it.

Complaint against Spriou - Abuse of power and mismanagement of data
Hello there EarthFurst, if it would be possible I would like to launch a complaint against Spirou for a few reasons, and I feel you will be understanding of the bigger situation rather than himself.
For the pass 2 months me and a user called YuumaKuma have been trying to set up a new, operational and detailed species page for a custom furry species we have been working on in our free time called "Makemeä", however the first time we tried to successfully upload our page it was quickly taken down and the data moved to YuumaKuma user page at "13:05 on 19th of September".
And we were told by Spirou to:
"You can continue to work with the Makemeä species presently in YuumaKuma's user page. After you create its creator's article (can't see one at present time), the species data can be inserted in as a section in it. But as a standalone, presently, no. Is not propagated through furry lore, nor notable enough for (X) reasons, hence the initial move to the talk page. Hope this helps. - Spirou (talk) 17:03, 29 September 2020 (EDT)"
So after going through pain staking hours more to follow Spirou instructions by creating a "creator article" for YuumaKuma, and updating all of the pages related to us with the necessary key information required.
On "22:47, 21 October 2020" we published the "Makemeä" for a second time and got in touch with Spirou (Which I now regret doing), to let him know of the situation and for him to make sure that everything is okay this second time around.
However this was followed up by the page being taken down and the data moved to YuumaKuma again:
"Hallo. I have already made some starting edits to her article and merged the species data within. When your article is created, a copy of the species section will be added to yours. Sry, running on borrowed time here. - Spirou (talk) 00:51, 22 October 2020 (EDT)"
Which meant that despite following his instructions, we had gotten things wrong again somehow? But what made things worse was by Spirou deliberately making everything a complete mess, by merging all of our created data into one page again, whilst making the active title page the existing user YuumaKuma, which is completely wrong.
I tried to let Spirou know about this problem, but then he replied with an complex excuse that didn't make any sense.
"First, again, if a new species article is non-notable or not really fully integrated into furry lore, it will be added to the species' creator page (in this case, you and YuumaKuma). The first step was to edit the YuumaKum article into a properly worked wiki article. The second was to do a rough pass on the merged Makemeä data, finishing by adding cleanup tags to ensure the present data is completely edited in."
"Yes, you can have an article and user page for both of you. No, the Makemeä article will not be by itself at the present time as explained above why, so it will be integrated into both your article. If the Makemeä article, which really, really needs a lot of work, is not ready for prime time, please move it to either of your user pages, finalize it, then merge back to your personal wiki article. This is the way."
""Can you please reverse this action"... Again, I can only reverse omit the Makemeä data out of YuumaKuma's article to his user page for further reworking, not YuumaKuma itself, as it was already edited as a standalone wiki article. After final/further/continuing edit of the Makemeä article, once more, it will not be a standalone article for now, because (all together now) is not notable enough nor fully integrated into furry lore at this present moment in time. Hope this comes thru. - Spirou (talk) 23:48, 25 October 2020 (EDT)"
First of all "non-notable" I can understand the "Makemeä" species might not be popular as of current times but that might change in the future and, there is no such thing as "furry lore", the furry fandom is all about creativity and expressing yourself in anyway possible, and nobody has ever heard of "furry lore" because it doesn't exist at all.
Me and YuumaKuma have tried for countless hours in our own free time to get this project species for the "Makemeä" to work but every time we try Spirou does nothing to help or stop making the problem worse, and I am just so confused.
All we wish is to just have a working "Makemeä" page on the Wikifur, just like anyone else can create a page on wikifur, so please EarthFurst can you help me out and bring the "Makemeä" to life, because I can't talk to Spirou any more without losing my mind?
