page name correction[edit]

Hey Dmuth, RVDDP2501 here, listen I made a mistake of mislabeling a page I made, how do i fix it? - - RVDDP2501 00:15, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

You tell us, and we move it. --GreenReaper(talk) 00:20, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
Hey GreenReaper, thanks for the move, I will try not to make mistakes like that in the future - RVDDP2501 00:26, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
No worries. We make them too, sometimes. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 00:29, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
Hey GreenReaper, I was wondering if you could perform another page name edit, could you add an "s" to my Remalon page turning it into "Remalons" (since there are five characters in that page), I would really appreciate it, thank you - RVDDP2501 18:20, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
Done. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:24, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

Could you reupload Image:1153413048.ebonyleopard john.jpg with a clearer filename? Perhaps Shawntae-JohnChristmas.JPG ? -- Sine 23:43, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Sure, I will reupload it with a better name, I'm really sorry about that - RVDDP2501 23:45, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
ok, is that better? - - RVDDP2501 23:49, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
Looks good. Thanks! -- Sine 02:41, 27 October 2006 (UTC)


I read the documentation at Wikipedia on reverting, but it's cumbersome when these guys obviously have scripts. I was going to ask someone more knowledgable if there was some Firefox userscript or some other voodoo that would streamline the process. But in the end you just have to last longer than they do, which shouldn't be too hard. :) Simba B 22:11, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

If you're on Firefox this looks good. You have to add * to the active site list in Greasemonkey however. Simba B 22:17, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

The admin team is quite aware of the recent attacks. They've been working for a while on cleaning it up. --Markus(talk) 23:36, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Extinctioners Wikipedia page deletion threat again[edit]

Hey GreenReaper, Sorry to constantly bother you but I just saw on the talk page of the Extinctioners page that it will be coming under a deletion threat within several days claiming wikifur IS NOT a reliable source (yeah right), here is the link to the page - - I hope it will not be removed, I don't understand it, they have pages for other furry comics but they seem the think this one is not worthy but if you think its not worth fighting over, I will understand, thank you - RVDDP2501 13:16, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Unfortunately, WikiFur isn't a reliable source, at least not in Wikipedia's terms. Someone could come by and change anything at any time. Articles are not guaranteed to be peer-reviewed - indeed, there is no particularly certainty that information on WikiFur has been checked by anyone. Contributions are, in many cases, anonymous. If you want to have an article at Wikipedia, you need to give proper references to the primary sources (the comics themselves), or to secondary sources that have been published in some kind of guaranteed editorially-reviewed medium, like a comic review in a published fanzine (or better).
Consider: You wrote most of the pages on WikiFur about the comic. Who's to say you weren't making up half of the stuff you wrote? You can see their situation - they can't just rely on your words for its accuracy. It is not that it is a furry comic. It is the entire article is your original creation, and you've not backed it up with links that show the source of the facts that you state. Go look at this article for an example of what I mean. There are probably worse articles, but that does not excuse the one about Extinctioners. --GreenReaper(talk) 05:12, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
