[edit] Your Skills Were Very Appreciated

Thanks a ton for the crisp look and proper rewording to the page.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nosphaer (talkcontribs) .

[edit] Thanks and hello!

Actually, I've been around for some time now, it's just hard to contribute to WikiFur, as most of the info is there already. But I am working on articles on Estonian WikiFur, that's a field that has plenty of work to do. And I would also write articles about couple of most-known Estonian furries to English WikiFur. Only thing bothering me is that I'd like to change my username to TDtheTiger (so it'd match my fursona and user names on other sites) but I'm not sure if it's possible to do on WikiFur sites without losing contributions.

All the best, TD

Hello, Riverside/TDtheTiger. I can rename your account TDtheTiger quite simply. I'm not completely sure, but I'm fairly confident that your editing history is retained during such a renaming. So if you want me to go ahead and change it, just say the word.--Higgs Raccoon 20:13, 29 August 2013 (EDT)
Yes; the names will be adjusted everywhere, and the contributions remain. --GreenReaper(talk) 01:49, 2 September 2013 (EDT)

Hello MuddyTheFox here, sorry about the constant saving, I am very confused with all the layout and was being passed info from some friends to update their pages as it was just as confusing for them lol. Thanks again for the greeting too! :) All the best!! Ps I hope I posted this in the right place lol!

[edit] Dhary Montecore

"Currently" as in...well...up to and including earlier this week :) Is there some particular phrase I should be using here ? Bezel 12:46, 20 September 2013 (EDT)

"As of (date)" would be good. The problem with "currently" is that it's rather vague.--Higgs Raccoon 12:51, 20 September 2013 (EDT)
I can understand that, but "as of September 19th, 2013", seems a bit too specific ! Like giving GPS co-ordinates for a furmeet :) I'll have a ponder Bezel 12:58, 20 September 2013 (EDT)
If you feel the day is too specific, try just broadening it to "As of September, 2013, he is working as a freelance event technician",--Higgs Raccoon 13:04, 20 September 2013 (EDT)

[edit] User Page templates

Hi, I might need some help and advice. I tried to create a user template, the ones you can place on your profile to display various things. Like whether you have an FA account etc. and I am having trouble making it into an actual template myself and others can use like that on their profile. I think I have also slightly messed up my user page as my links to being a wikifurry have disappeared and some of my current templates. Sorry for the fuss and any help would be much appreciated!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mikune (talkcontribs) .

Hello, Mikune. I think it's working now. The template needed a few small adjustments, that's all, and I've renamed it Template:User_Leeds_Furmeet. To add it to anyone's User Page, just include the code {{User Leeds Furmeet}}. --Higgs Raccoon 14:26, 23 September 2013 (EDT)

Thank you, your help is much appreciated! --Mikune 01:45, 29 September 2013 (EDT)

[edit] User page - random blue background?

Hi, I would just like to ask about something that sometimes occurs during preview of an edit. Well, a sort of half blue background appears when I click to view my edits before publishing. Is this something wrong with the code in my userpage or is it not actually there when published? Mikune 00:29, 29 September 2013 (EDT)

You may wish to direct this query to User:GreenReaper. Viewing your User Page, I don't see any half-blue background, nor do I get the effect you describe if I open it for editing and click the Show Preview button. GR has a better understanding of WikiFur's nuts and blocks than I do, so if there's some some subtle glitch then he may be able to offer advice.--Higgs Raccoon 10:44, 29 September 2013 (EDT)

[edit] Deletion of page inqury

Hey it's user:MilitaryAviator, just wondering if you could delete for me. I'm in a transition period at the moment, (changing fursona's) so once I finish, I'll make another page. So if you could please delete my cole cherno page, that would be greatly appreciated.-user:MilitaryAviator 18:16 EST, 1 October, 2013

From the POV of WikiFur's curators, it'd be easier and tidier if you decided on your new fursona and then simply rewrote the existing article, which would then be moved if the name has changed as well.--Higgs Raccoon 19:12, 1 October 2013 (EDT)
Alright, I edited my page, I just need you to change the url from Cole Cherno To MilitaryAviator if you could please ---user:MilitaryAviator 9:28, 3 October 2013 (EST)

[edit] Help with clearing and deleting a page

Hi there... I wanted to have my page deleted. It's I've been clearing the page and saying "user wished to be excluded," but people just keep reverting it. If you could delete it, that would be absolutely wonderful. Thanks! -Nick

[edit] FurWAG

Hi. I notice you've now split this up into seperate articles for each year, created a template etc. Is this standard policy where a convention has had at least one iteration and has announced there are plans for another one ? Bezel 09:31, 7 October 2013 (EDT)

Hi Bezel. I don't think there's anything written in stone, but it's what we do with the "big" conventions, and I see no harm in being consistent and treating the smaller conventions the same. Of course, it depends on how much there is to split off. With FurWAG there's only a few paragraphs to put in the year-specific articles, but I feel it's just enough to justify splitting it. If there was anything less than that then I'd probably keep them together in one article. (For example, in the article about EAST, there's only one or two sentences on each iteration of the event, so that's an article I would leave unsplit.)--Higgs Raccoon 09:49, 7 October 2013 (EDT)

[edit] Hopeful this work

Im a newbie, thanks for the page and help your awesome. Have a good Christmas :D

[edit] Deleting page

Just wondering you you cloud somehow delete my page MilitaryAviator and close my account. I don't use this site too often anymore, so if you could please. -user:MilitaryAviator 17:54 EST, 26 December 2013

I have deleted the article MilitaryAviator and locked it against further changes. If you change your mind, you can ask any curator to unlock and restore the article. I'm not sure if there's a mechanism for deactivating your account. That might be a question best put to GreenReaper.--Higgs Raccoon 18:56, 26 December 2013 (EST)
ok thanks man, I asked greenreaper and we'll see what happens -User:MilitaryAviator 19:20EST 26, december 2013

[edit] Personal Exclusion Request

Hi, I'd like to have my primary article page WolfWings here deleted/protected and the Exclusion Template put in place please. WolfWings 19:12, 2 January 2014 (EST)

Done. The article has been deleted and locked against further edits. If you change your mind in the future, you can ask any curator to unlock and restore the article.--Higgs Raccoon 19:48, 2 January 2014 (EST)

[edit] Deleting page

Hi! Earlier today I tried to remove this Trimoon article page since I'm no longer active in the fandom, but you brought the page back (probably because you assumed someone is just trolling etc), but yeah, it's me. If you go to my FA page that's linked on the article, you can see the text "Higgs Raccoon" under Artist Profile. I'm sure that's enough to prove that it's me. I'll remove your username from my FA once the article is gone. Thanks!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

OK, that's good enough to prove identity and intent. The article has been deleted and locked as per WikiFur's personal exclusion policy. If you change your mind in future, you can ask any curator to unlock the article again.--Higgs Raccoon 17:40, 10 January 2014 (EST)

[edit] Hello! SyrahFairbairn here.

Thank you for putting me up here, I'm really, very flattered! My DA Info is wrong, and I no longer use it, but it's ok. (just thought I should notify you.) :) Much love to you!

[edit] Hi this is Katsuke

I would like to request for my page, Katsuke_Saito to be closed and deleted due to inactivity.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

It's not considered necessary to delete a page just because it is inactive, but, it you are sure you want it removed, could you put a note saying "Remove me from WikiFur" on your Fur Affinity profile? This will be taken as proof of identity, and the article will then be excluded.--Higgs Raccoon 06:04, 16 January 2014 (EST)

[edit] In regards to my talk page

Thank you for the helpful advice, since I'm new here I didn't know frequently pressing save was a bad thing. I'm sorry for any trouble I put you or the other curators through. Much love and your knowledge is very appreciated!--Richard Lindsey 14:17, 19 January 2014 (EST)

[edit] Personal Exclusion Request

I would like my page, Skittle T. Furfag deleted. Thank you.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Skittle (talkcontribs) .

[edit] Hunter DarkWolf

Hunter here just saying thinks for work on my page but can I ask how so you know my sofurry and FB—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

Are you asking how I know the addresses of your SoFurry and Facebook pages? TheEchoRies added your Facebook address, and your SoFurry address is linked to on your Fur Affinity page.--Higgs Raccoon 18:49, 5 February 2014 (EST)

Higs do you have a FA if so note me—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hunter DarkWolf (talkcontribs) .

I don't use Fur Affinity to any meaningful extent. BTW, when using Talk Pages you should sign your comments with "--~~~~".--Higgs Raccoon 17:12, 6 February 2014 (EST)

Do you use any other site that I can chat with you on --Hunter DarkWolf

Not really. Other curators may maintain an online presence off WikiFur, but I find it hardly worthwhile anymore.--Higgs Raccoon 14:52, 7 February 2014 (EST)

[edit] Doh and thanks (re rollback)

An iPhone screen can be a pain in the arse for editing sometimes. Missed the screw up , too /=< -Spirou 16:57, 28 February 2014 (EST)

[edit] Changes to ConFurgence page

Hello there, are we able to talk in regards to the editing of the ConFurgence page? You can reach me at <>, or I am currently on the wikifur IRC channel. - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

We prefer not to converse via private e-mail, as it leaves other editors in the dark. (Article talk pages are better as everyone can keep up-to-date.) I don't use the IRC channel but you can probably find GreenReaper or other admins there. (I am going afk anyway.) --Higgs Raccoon 07:49, 3 April 2014 (EDT)
