The WikiFur page Nyinxie has been deleted on 22 September 2021 by Spirou, see

Editor's summary: Not ready for prime time article. What does this mean? i don't understand - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nyinxie (talkcontribs) .

Hallo. As it was (a couple of links and request to expand the stub), the article was not ready for inclusion yet (see a full article like Splash Fusky as an example). If you still working on it, is best to build it on your user page, then copy/paste as an article when is ready to be published.
I moved the available data to Nyinxie's talk page. Direct users there to help you out fleshing it out. Hope it is clear, Cheers - Spirou (talk) 19:23, 22 September 2021 (EDT)
Ooooh! Oh ok! I get it now! Thanks a lot for the example also. Cheers. Alrighty I'll give it a wipe over. Cheers m8. - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nyinxie (talkcontribs) .
No problem, any time.😊 - Spirou (talk) 01:31, 16 November 2021 (EST)


I would like to have my page, located at Faux-Pa, removed from WikiFur by Personal exclusion. I have attempted to contact GreenReaper via Email 2 weeks ago, but have yet to receive a response.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nikolai-The-Wolfdog (talkcontribs) .

No problem, just fire me a Twitter DM at @SpirouWikifur, or I can can review the Controversy section (issues seem to have been worked out between both parties internally, so is no longer an standing problem, and is not something that affects the fandom in general, so it can be edited out as of now). Either way, please take your time. Hope this helps. - Spirou (talk) 14:48, 28 September 2021 (EDT)

Vandalism at Christian Fur[edit]

Hey an IP is vandalizing Christian Fur.CycoMa (talk) 16:19, 4 November 2021 (EDT)

Thanks. User banned, article protected (one week, excessive vandalism). - Spirou (talk) 00:38, 5 November 2021 (EDT)

T.E.C. page deleted[edit]

Hello! I updated my page a few minutes ago for my Convention, and I come back a couple minutes later to add more to it, and you have deleted it for being unfinished? Why have you? And is there a way to restore it please? - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2001:569:fcba:a600:f423:6c0f:9c20:fd9 (talkcontribs) .

Wrong convention article scheduled to be deleted. Restored and partial edit. - Spirou (talk) 01:31, 16 November 2021 (EST)
Ty, I was worried I did something wrong. I will continue editing and finish up the page in a couple hors here.

Request: New Turkish Subdomain for WikiFur[edit]


I've already posted this request in GreenReaper's talk page and emailed him but I haven't received any feedback, yet. I apologize if I'm acting impatient.

Could you create a Turkish subdomain in WikiFur so we can contribute it by our native tongue ?

Thanks. - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by DarkBloodKing (talkcontribs) .

Hallo. GreenReaper is the best person to perform this task, I can email your request to him, shouldn't take long. Cheers - Spirou (talk) 19:58, 17 November 2021 (EST)

Request: Page Deletion[edit]


Can you please delete this wiki that was made for me years ago:

I'm no-longer in the fandom and wish to have my page, all my information and edits completely removed.

If you need conformation of identity, please contact me at

Request: Page deletion[edit]

Hi could i possibly have my user page ( removed? I am no longer comfortable with this information being here.

Thanks, Eddy

Hallo Eddie; please send me an Twitter DM for verification (@SpirouWikifur), and I will take it from there, cheers. - Spirou (talk) 01:30, 5 January 2022 (EST)

Request: Source citations[edit]

Heyo Spirou, thanks for all your patience and help with my page so far.

I have some sources you can use for my WikiFur page, which I've put in the Talk page of my article.

I don't know how to add citations but if you can add an example I can just copy and paste stuff myself, which is entirely how I wrote the original article.

Here's a link to my blog where I reference my immigration, which you can add as a citation for my immigration under "early life" and change "at the age of 16" to "under the age of 18".

Thanks for everything,

Etrius WhiteTigerOfTheWest

Issues with citation templates[edit]

Hey Spirou, I'm curious as to your comment on this revision where you mention that the reference templates I've been working on lately were "bombing" Safari. I also use Safari as my main browser and haven't encountered issues. Are you able to provide more info on what's causing problems, or what affect it seems to be having? Thanks! — beeps (talk, contribs) 12:31, 23 February 2022 (EST)

Saving on preview causes the page to lock, and eventually crash. Does not happen on (Apple-approved) Chrome or Edge (could be a Safari extension issue, maybe Grammarly). first page with this type of reference edit use instead of the ones we have been using since day one, is there a reason for using this type now?. If this is GreenReaper approved, no prob, but syntax that may cause a possible crash could be an issue (if extension related, could be a pain if I have to switch them off to just edit an article) - Spirou (talk) 14:51, 23 February 2022 (EST)
My assumption would be that it would be extension related if it's not happening in other browsers. Nothing too weird in the syntax either, it's pretty much the same as what Wikipedia were using before they transitioned all their major templates over to Lua (which WikiFur doesn't support).
I started updating and using citation templates (most already existed, just hadn't been used or updated for several years) to try and bring some consistency to citations. I personally find it easier to assemble them if there's a template with specific parameters and formats to use, and it of course removes some human error from the equation. Most other wiki projects I contribute to also use such templates, so WikiFur either lacking equivalents, or those equivalents being so massively out of step, was pretty jarring for me. They're not something I'm pushing to be a standard on WikiFur, but they're a tool I personally find useful. — beeps (talk, contribs) 15:15, 23 February 2022 (EST)


Hello. Do you have permissions to hide my IP on this diff? I didn't see I was logged out. On another note, I'm working on fixing the issues you pointed out. I'm a Wikipedia editor so I know wiki formatting for example, but I'm still getting used to some of the different policies here. Yiff (talk) 12:04, 7 March 2022 (EST)

Please contact GreenReaper to hide the IP, I'm not cleared for that. - Spirou (talk) 01:05, 10 March 2022 (EST)

Quick Thanks[edit]

Thanks for cleaning up my page and getting rid of the dude putting stuff on my page about farts XD. I made some more revisions to my page if you wanna take a look but just wanted to thank a homie for looking out <3 -Dex

No problem, anytime. Be aware that you need to upload an image via Wikifur's upload file page to have it available in the article, cheers. - Spirou (talk) 21:28, 15 April 2022 (EDT)
Yea I tried but it says I don't have perms yet so I took them down. Gonna add some for all my characters. Thanks for the formatting too btw!


Good evening,

I created the account GrantGraywolf about 7 hours ago. I can see why you blocked me, since I didn’t contribute anything and made no edits to my user page. My email address and IP are both blocked as well, so I’m sending this from my phone.

My intent was to edit the page for Longhorn Furs and create an article for its successor org, Longhorn Furries. I’m smack in the middle of finals season so I didn’t get to this right away. I’ve also read through WikiFur:About and understand wiki policy.

I would like to kindly request my block be lifted. If you need any sort of verification, I can happily send it. If the ban is permanent, I’ll also understand.

I apologize if I’ve made any mistakes, and I wish you well.

Thank you, Grant 2600:100C:B05D:C4E1:FCED:E3D6:A1BA:9B2C 01:38, 2 May 2022 (EDT)

The block is removed. You just got caught on a false positive spammer name run. It happens, apologies. - Spirou (talk) 03:10, 2 May 2022 (EDT)
No worries, thank you very much! GrantGraywolf (talk) 12:35, 2 May 2022 (EDT)



I recently added some characters from SpongeBob to the Fish page as anthro characters. I was wondering why my edits were gone, then I saw the comment to go with it. This is my first time editing mind you but here are some links to the wikis where I found what their names are:

If they aren't major enough characters to add, I understand that though. Cheers!

—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Feesh (talkcontribs) .

Except for Mrs. Puff on Sponge Bob Squarepants, we don't include incidental characters as it would quickly overtake the article. If we did so, the article would be just Shark Tale and the Nemo franchises' incidentals. - Spirou (talk) 21:17, 22 May 2022 (EDT)


Hello would u plz do me a favor and have a look at the deleted revisions of Pawstop.png, deleted last year despite that many pages still link to it. :^) Hipcrime (talk) 01:07, 9 June 2022 (EDT)

Okay, seems that the restore worked for both the dark and white versions, I need to ask GreenReaper if it's possible to overwrite, or outright delete the vandal version. - Spirou (talk) 02:03, 9 June 2022 (EDT)

Requesting removal of information.[edit]

Hi, got your message, I'd like to get some pages and reference to my name removed from here. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

Hmm, what article/user are you referring to? (need a link, please). - Spirou (talk) 23:30, 11 June 2022 (EDT) This, and anything that links to, and from it. Please. - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .
Requests for personal exclusion are fine but need verification by an account known to belong to the subject (and have limits, they're meant to protect real-life information about a person, that would go on the page about them not e.g. what creative works they made or were in). Perhaps you two can get in contact over on DA to confirm this, since the FA account appears to be inaccessible? --GreenReaper(talk) 23:53, 11 June 2022 (EDT)
I am the individual who owns the DA/FA accounts. I closed the FA account in particular. I can open it, temporarily, and contact through it for verification if need be? - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .
Cutting it close, but done - Spirou (talk) 22:26, 15 June 2022 (EDT)

Request for Exclusion[edit]


I am requesting that the article Naia Okami be excluded. (verify request) Thank you --Naiaokami (talk) 17:17, 25 June 2022 (EDT)

Hallo, seems that colleague RainRat got to your request already. Hope that helped. - Spirou (talk) 02:06, 26 June 2022 (EDT)

Request: Page deletion[edit]

Hi could i possibly have my user page ( removed? I am no longer comfortable with this information and pics being here.

Thanks, Zeed - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Drax4210 (talkcontribs) .

Hallo, it shouldn't be an issue. Please DM a note from the article's Twitter account to mine (@SpirouWikifur), and I should be able to start the Personal Exclusion right away. Cheers. - Spirou (talk) 22:26, 23 July 2022 (EDT)

Request for Exclusion[edit]

Hello, I am reaching out to ask that my page please be removed, I am trying to clean up my google hits a little.

Thanks again, Drake Wingfire - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Drake Wingfire (talkcontribs) .

Hallo, please DM a note to my Twitter account (@SpirouWikifur), and I should be able to start the Personal Exclusion. Cheers. - Spirou (talk) 16:26, 24 July 2022 (EDT)

Request for Exclusion[edit]

Hello. I'm requesting that my article Eurodex be excluded. I no longer wish for it to remain on here for personal reasons.

I believe I already moved my original username "Eurodex" to "NuclearVacuum" years ago (back in 2008 it seems). If you still need more confirmation that it's me, please let me know.

I'd also like to request the removal of the following files:

These were personally done by me and I'd like for them to be removed as my article will become excluded.

Please and thank you. --NuclearVacuum (talk) 20:44, 14 August 2022 (EDT)

Images have been deleted. Please DM me at Twitter at @SpirouWikifur next to confirm the final step. Personal Exclusion will take place afterward. - Spirou (talk) 21:16, 14 August 2022 (EDT)

How do I upload an image?[edit]

I would like to put one on my user page. Unlike Uncyclopedia the upload button seems to be missing. Is it restricted to mods only?—Crocotta1 (talk) 10:19, 21 August 2022 (EDT)

Template:PingHello?—Crocotta1 (talk) 19:11, 21 August 2022 (EDT)
Hallo, were you able to perform the upload, or do you need further help?. - Spirou (talk) 02:18, 24 August 2022 (EDT)

Thanks for your moderation work[edit]

I kind of feel bad a lot of what you're having to do has to do with reverting vandalism edits and blocking the vandals who do so. But thanks for what you do. Scarbo (talk) 18:30, 10 September 2022 (EDT)

Dankeshen, no problems. - Spirou (talk) 00:49, 23 September 2022 (EDT)

Wolfie Kif[edit]

Where can I find the original text? I don't want to write it a third time. I looked to see if I could hire myself as the director of my own event (Staf). However, you have already deleted it twice. There is no more information on several other staff. I would finally solve it so that the event does not have a dead link, but they keep deleting it.

Why is it good that instead of my name, Stafs now reads: —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

The paragraph is located on the initial creator's user page. I will put in your user page too. - Spirou (talk) 00:49, 23 September 2022 (EDT)


I'm starting to feel like you're targeting me and my page, I don't care that you think certain things don't belong the way you seem to think they do, but I'm getting sick and tired of your elitist edits on my page. I'll kindly ask you to leave me and my page alone.

  • Sigh* First, it’s not YOUR article, it is an article about YOU in Wikifur. Second, me, you, others, anybody can edit your article so it becomes what the article should be and work with the rest of thousands of user articles on this wiki, third, I’m not targeting you, so kindly do not THREAT anybody who gives its/their time on this wiki. I edited out your article because I’m working on other Wikifur articles offline, keeping an eye on vandals on the recent pages, and removing spam, so I had spare minutes to help you with the article about you. And fourth, if you are losing iit because another editor is working on your article, you will not make in the real world. Really do please use basic common decency while dealing with people. - Spirou (talk) 03:42, 24 September 2022 (EDT)

Request: Page Deletion[edit]

(confirmation) Hey Spirou, could you please remove/exclude:
not comfortable with it being up / it includes personal information that I shouldn't have put in there
also apologies for trying to remove it forcefully, should've assumed there was an actual process

Thanks, F

Thanks for the confirmation, it is helpful. I will go ahead and exclude/protect the article. Also, just FYI, you have the option of just removing all personal info instead (with a note to other editors not to reinstate it), but that will be up to you if you wish to do so in the future. Thanks and cheers. - Spirou (talk) 07:44, 24 September 2022 (EDT)

Request: Page Deletion[edit]

Hey Spirou, please remove/exclude: I have a new job and this is one of the last resources about me that can be found online - i would like to have it removed. Thank you.

Done. Your article has been excluded and protected. - Spirou (talk) 19:35, 24 September 2022 (EDT)
