Verification of Fixes[edit]

Hi, this is Stonulf. I think I'm entering this message properly. (If this isn't the proper way to contact you, please feel free to correct me). I've made an account, but I made my userpage first (not exactly my shining moment). I see that you have added me as a contributor on my userpage. Does this essentially make me the owner of that page? Or is there a separate process that i'll need to go through?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Stonulf (talkcontribs) .

Hi, Stonulf. There are two pages with quite different purposes. The page User:Stonulf is your User Page. That's a page where you can put whatever you want (within reason), and format things however you like. You can think of it as your personal page. On the other hand, the page Stonulf is an Article, which is owned by the entire community and may be (will be) edited by anyone at any time.--Higgs Raccoon (talk) 20:06, 11 June 2015 (EDT)
Ok. Can I transfer the content of that article onto my userpage, then delete (or have you delete) the article? I'd like to come to the end result of having just one page for myself.


sry for my short fuse, Higgs. no, he is still alive,. tube was taken out at 8. He is heavily sedated, so he doesnt respond if i talk to him, but he feels no pain. All local close friends came to see one last time last nite to say their goodbyes. Now we can onlywait -Spirou (talk) 15:24, 23 June 2015 (EDT)

No problem, Spirou. Sorry about the mistake - I was acting on the original version of the Flayrah article, which was inaccurate. I certainly wasn't trying to cause you distress or disrespect Doug in any way.--Higgs Raccoon (talk) 15:42, 23 June 2015 (EDT)

Lack references[edit]

Why you classified the page "Rhodes Gamble" which lack references if all the informations are there?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by PomegranateOtter-eng2 (talkcontribs) .

References are helpful as they allow readers - should they be so inclined - to verify the truthfulness of the information contained in articles. When quotations are included (such as "an artist of clean lines" in the Rhodes Gamble article), it is a good idea to include a link to somewhere where that quotation is actually used, so people can check it's a true quotation.--Higgs Raccoon (talk) 18:09, 14 August 2015 (EDT)

Possible Username Change?[edit]

I think when I originally created this Wikifur account, I did not have the username on other sites that I have now (see my article for clarification). I would like to make a change if possible.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hg3300 (talkcontribs) .

I can change your user name without any problems. So there is no confusion, could you tell me exactly what you want it changed to (including any spaces, upper/lower case letters, etc)?--Higgs Raccoon (talk) 18:45, 9 September 2015 (EDT)

Page Removal Request: Trent Halvorsen[edit]

Hi. My name is Trent Halvorsen. I'd like the page profiling me to be removed from this wiki.


Just wanted to give thanks for cleaning up my personal page and making it conform to wiki standards. I appreciate it. --S-Config

Personal info and name merging[edit]

Hi, I'm Twitch Da Woof, and noticed more incorrect info added to my wiki page, along with my real name in the history of edits. I don't want my professional life attached to my furry life, so is there any way my real name can be removed from the page edits in the history? Also, can my name be merged with "TwitchDaWoof"? It wouldn't let me to register under my actual fandom name because of the page's existence. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by TwitchWolf (talkcontribs) .

Higgs poked me and I've removed the revisions with your real name. As for your username, the issue is that you had an account when we were at You need to login here at least once with the username TwitchDaWoof and the password that is valid at (you'll have to go through their reset-and-login procedure and set a new permanent Wikia password if you don't remember it). will then transparently import your account, and the old and new accounts can then be merged into one. If you've done that, or if what I've explained doesn't work, drop me a note on my talk page explaining what you tried and I can have a look at it. --GreenReaper(talk) 13:35, 12 October 2015 (EDT)

Please remove the page profiling me ( It's no longer accurate nor relevant. Thank you. I will update the actual page regarding myself ( at some point in the future.

Response from Woody[edit]

Sure thing, happy to help out. I know MFF's Wikifur presence hasn't been very well maintained, but our marketing department is now trying to get everything in line. Hopefully, soon we'll have more actual reference points on our own site, which Wikifur can be directed towards. In the meantime, I'm trying to minimize what I add by only filling in gaps, and instead focusing on unifying the formatting of the information already here. --Woody (talk) 04:50, 13 January 2016 (EST)

I know that Fred Patten reached out to Robert King a couple of years ago, in regards to MFF's early years, but I've just reached out to a few more of the founders to see if anyone has this information, or can find it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! --Woody (talk) 12:32, 15 January 2016 (EST)
