- Glad to have you! It's always good to have contributors who already know about MediaWiki. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 05:35, 4 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing my entry. Still a bit of a noob when it comes to wiki entries, etc. :) H.
- Thanks! I'm excited to join the team and hope to be a aid to the community as a whole. I took on a big project pretty early to my Wiki career, the What is Furry? article. Myself and Giza are undecided as to wether or not the sexual nature of being furry should be included on this page. Some discussion between me and him carried over from the discussion page on the artical itself. It boils down to the impact of drawing potentially harmful attention to the fandom through the sexual aspect. Your thoughts? --Omnibahumut 06:19, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Hey, thanks for the welcome. Sorry this reply is a bit delayed; I tend to procrastinate a lot. ... Mainly because I keep getting to this point in my reply and hitting writer's block about what to say next, then I get frustrated, and decide I'll do it later... I'm just going to leave it at "Thanks for the welcome" for now. Hopefully I'll be more verbose later on. KaloFoxfire 17:35, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
Actually, that was one of the articles I entered in Wikifur. It wasn't vandalism, just vandalized,... <=( Spirou 04:27, 21 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- No problem, Thank you very much =) Spirou 04:31, 21 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Welcome back, GR... :) Carl Fox 05:06, 21 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Thanks! I'll be letting people know about my trip, since it relates (somewhat) to WikiFur. :-)
- Consider it done, O Fearless Leader. :) Carl Fox 05:36, 21 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Oddly enough, I had one of those forehead-slapping moments yesterday when I realized that I can take my work laptop with me when I go traveling for Thanksgiving. So I'll end up having some connectivity during the holiday after all and will be able to keep an eye on things here. --Dmuth 15:03, 22 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Great! I should be around as well . . . and I'm sure we'll have a lot of visitors from people who actually have time to read the leaflets they picked up at MFF. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 14:50, 23 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Hmm. (Grins stupidly) Um. I apparently forgot I already had a username on here...and...you can delete either one (Lone or LoneWulfe) 'cause...I hadn't worked on my little page in so long, I'd forgotten I had to make a name. I just wanted to let you know that it is indeed the same person...and that I am indeed an idiot. Let me know iffen you'd like to delete either one - I'm more than happy with either name, myself.
(Will promise to stop being dumb)
- Well, if you still have the same email address (and put that address in when registering) then you can ask to have the password sent to you via the login page . . . --GreenReaper(talk) 07:31, 26 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Hmm...well, I do have the passwords to both, I just wasn't sure if you'd wanna get rid of one since both names are registered to me and I dun honestly need both. I won't complain 'bout it...I just dun want it to be an inconvenience or anything.
- Okay, that's fine with me - no worrie sin that case. I'll just use this one, then...thanks for the help!
- Yes, whenever something goes right on this site, I know who to blame - Nidonocu, or one of our other administrators. Yet they keep doing it! *sigh* --GreenReaper(talk) 08:48, 10 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for the welcome!
I'll just take a moment and thank you for the warm welcome. It's much appreciated. From what I've seen, this community is a good one, congratulations on creating something so successful. --quoting_mungo 07:50, 10 Dec 2005 (UTC)
- You're welcome! I'm glad that WikiFur is a success, but honestly, anyone could have founded it given the great response we've got from the community; I just happened to be the person who decided to start the ball rolling. As the good Dr. Strangelove almost said, the technology required is easily within the means of even the smallest furry fan - it required only the will to do so. And, heck, I couldn't think of anything better to do with my evenings. ;-) --GreenReaper(talk) 08:48, 10 Dec 2005 (UTC)
I was just wandering what events furs can have in Australia, it seems all the action is at america or canada, i just wanted to know if there was anything on here *hugs* im new to the sight, saw a chance and took it to ask. *snuggles* please reply. --Furrywolf
- The only one I know of is MiDFur - the "Melbourne in December furmeet". I would suggest asking about it in Ozfurs. Further furry information about Australia can be found in the Australia category. --GreenReaper(talk) 23:49, 17 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Hey, thanks for the message.
At least I'd be productive and do something for the furdom ^^
Re: redirect from Footboy
Hi there, and welcome to WikiFur! I noticed this edit, but the edit summary wasn't particularly enlightning to me - could you let me know what the issue was with the redirect? --GreenReaper(talk) 09:43, 9 Jan 2006 (UTC)
- I'm Footboy. I severed the redirect on that page because someone advised against directly linking my forum name to my furry one. Unfortunately I don't know how to delete the Footboy page entirely. Sorry for the confusion. ^^
Welcome and comics
Hi there, Ricardo, and welcome to WikiFur! Thanks for telling us a little about yourself and your works. Let me know if you need any help not already provided. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 04:29, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
- Hi there GreenReaper. I´m glad i make my way to WikiFur through Fur Affinity link. I´m not having any problem creating my pages and I hope you don´t mind it.
- I'm glad you did, too! You are welcome to create the pages about you and the things that you have done (and other things, if you know about them :-).
- I saw some people I know in here and I thought I could have my name in it too. And I internal-link some of my pages such as Balls of Furr and No One´s Land. I´m still finishing Moon Bunnies and Bound to be Friends. But I have a question: how can I post my comic strips in here too?
- Hmm. Do you mean posting all of them, or individual strips? WikiFur isn't really a comic hosting site (it describes comics and contains examples, but not the whole thing), but if you have them hosted elsewhere it may be possible to link to them in some fashion, if you think that would help. I notice you have already uploaded sample pictures for several of them (which is good!).
- There´s this Comic of the Week thing that I find interesting. I have lots of strips ready to post and I´m in the making of more yet.
- Thanks! --Rcanheta
- Yes - the Comic of the Week (recently added) is intended to highlight a particular comic and the article about it. It is basically the "Featured article", but just for comics, because we have so many of them. It is based on both how many nominations it gets (if any) and how good the article about the comic is. --GreenReaper(talk) 09:23, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for Darrel Exline
- You're welcome. It's still not perfect, because I don't know the guy and I'm sure he's done other things worth recording, but perhaps it's better to start it off by writing the more "difficult" parts from that perspective. All I really did was look at the material available to me and summarize how it looked overall to me. Sometime's that's what's required. --GreenReaper(talk) 03:08, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
Hey GR, I was just curious how long it took the Creatures Wiki to be added to the DMOZ, and if they actually sent you a response or you just found it added one day. If you could response over at Redwall that'd be great. Thanks --LordTBT 01:23, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
- Heh, they finally added it? It can take a while if there's nobody actively looking after it. I was tempted to apply, but it was just too much effort. But yes, it can take several months. --GreenReaper(talk) 09:13, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
Anthrocon's room block
I don't think it's smaller than last year (I don't have the exact numbers, as Kage handles the hotel stuff, so I could be wrong), but I do know for a fact (as also stated in the linked to post) that it's filling up faster than in previous years. Just wanted to point that out. :-)
On the subject of a room party, maybe we should put up a survey closer to the con, asking who would attend? --Dmuth 18:26, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
- Hmm. Lessee - the Wydham Franklin Plaza has 757 rooms, of which some unknown percentage were rented out due to prior commitments. The Westin Pittsburgh Convention center has 616 rooms, all but a few of which will be used by Anthrocon. I'd guess that there's probably a slightly smaller room block this year, but the difference is likely negligible - a few dozen, perhaps.
- As for a room party, I'll be glad to stop by and slouch bonelessly in a corner and try not to fall asleep :-) --Duncan da Husky 18:58, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
- I was given to understand that the room block was smaller because of the rushed move, but I could be wrong - I guess if Anthrocon did actually manage to book those days then it would have the full use of the rooms (as you'd expect for a convention hotel). I had trouble booking for the 14th myself, and I had a good time at MFF just arriving on the first morning, so I went for arrive 15th - depart 18th. I figured it was better to have WikiFur users get into the main hotel as I learnt at MFF that it can be a bit of a hassle going to and from overflows (though admittedly that was across a freezing parking lot ;-).
- The survey does sound like a good idea, perhaps a month or so before so there's time to organize anything that people ask for. --GreenReaper(talk) 20:00, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
- Going from memory (again), we had somewhere around 500 rooms in our block at the Wyndham. Something about going to them with only a few months notice due to the Adam's Mark closing, and all that. I don't know offhand what the size is at the Westin.
- Regarding getting ALL the rooms in the hotel, I don't think that's EVER happened in our history. Even at the Adam's Mark in 2004, there were a few dozen guest rooms and one function room that were already "spoken for" when we wanted to have our con.
- Regarding your issues making reservations, if it was recently, doubles sold out on the night of the 14th (Wednesday). Hotels only have so many different types of each room (and each convention there has different demands, of course), so stuff like that happens.
- Yes, I am particularly scared that the hotel is filling up this early. o.O
- --Dmuth 20:39, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
- Well, I was going for a King size, but it seemed I couldn't get one of those either for the whole time. I'm fine coming in during the morning, though - gives me time to wake up (and it's more money that I can put towards the fandom rather than the convention support industry).
- Couldn't get a king size? That's interesting. Either those have sold out too(!), or the hotel is getting confused. That seems to happen to some degree every year, regardless of which hotel we deal with. --Dmuth 23:21, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
- Perhaps there was a convention the previous day and they had taken the rooms for the day? I'm not sure why, either. Still, as long as nothing hugely essential starts before 12 or so, I should be fine. And if not - well, it's my fault for leaving it too late. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 03:42, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
