Myrra[edit]

hey thanks for banning the (I don't have a name so the number thing will have to do) 2601:281:c000:4fa5:b159:457a:db9b:98db guy i saw the vandalizaton when i was bored going through recent changes. let me know if there's anything else i can do to help the wiki

--Myrra (talk) 16:00, 7 April 2019 (EDT) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Myrra (talkcontribs) .

No problem =) - Spirou (talk) 22:18, 11 April 2019 (EDT)

Hey There[edit]

So I noticed you used to work for Warner Bros. That's pretty cool actually. --DuskTheRaccoon (talk) 12:33, 10 April 2019 (EDT)

Still do, as a freelancer from time to time. - Spirou (talk) 22:18, 11 April 2019 (EDT)

I see. I also noticed you're quite active on this wiki a lot. I seem like the only other person actively updating this wiki. Well us and GreenReaper (the owner). --DuskTheRaccoon (talk) 22:33, 11 April 2019 (EDT)

There are, and always have been, many transient editors - in any given month, edits by occasional visitors (most interested only in specific topics) tends to be roughly equal to that of established contributors. Traffic fallen over the years, and edits roughly in line with that, but to a point; and in the last few months it increased. I've adjusted our settings to encourage the use of HTTPS, which Google favours - most visits come through search - and it seems to be working, inasmuch as they've switched over from HTTP. Colleagues are often busy (as I have been) but drop in occasionally; WikiFur's been up for 5000 days, and you can't expect people to stick around all the time. (Oddly the top three main-namespace editors by edit count all have about the same number of main-namespaces edits; but activity differs in other namespaces.) --GreenReaper(talk) 17:46, 16 April 2019 (EDT)

Hmmmm good point. Well I've been helping to update this wiki the best I can. The YouTube article definitely needed some work lol --DuskTheRaccoon (talk) 18:03, 16 April 2019 (EDT)

Noodles[edit]

I have tried to politely fix the discrepancies with my wikifur page for a few months now. I noticed that you are the one who keeps changing it to false information. If you would like to learn the actual details, please contact me. Otherwise if the page is not fixed by the end of July, I will be seeking legal counsel. Thank you. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by NoodleDoodle (talkcontribs) .

If you had used this your real handle all this time when making all those edits, instead of different suspicious anon IP addresses, we wouldn't be here and now, wouldn't we?. But, hey, you learn something new every day, don't you?. =) Oh, and the legal threat?, no, no so much (that is something else you learned today). - Spirou (talk) 23:07, 3 July 2019 (EDT)
I should not have to disclose my identity to fix false information. If you ever need help getting correct information there are proper ways to do it. Posting false claims as fact is a little harmful to not only those involved but the lives of those around them, you silly little goose :D
Also to add, as you can see, I literally just made this account today just so I could message you —The preceding unsigned comment was added by NoodleDoodle (talkcontribs) .

Hey if they keep updating your account with false info about you and removing the true info, that’s textbook slander and you can 100% pursue legal action, as well as you should. And to Spirou, that legal threat is valid as you committed slander. So yes, yes so much.

Kitsugai[edit]

Hey there. Regarding the lemonbrat debacle. It was a pretty big even that got a lot of attention in the community. She is trying to cash in on the drama she created so it’s only fair that the whole story be known. Just because it was resolved does not mean it didn’t happen and people should know about it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2601:603:4d00:6:a851:8ca3:9ad6:d6e4 (talkcontribs) .

You just proved that you hide the truth and event based on your own opinions, not facts and therefore have proven yourself to be biased and untrustworthy. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2601:603:4d00:6:a1b5:3b03:1346:9c79 (talkcontribs) .
The matter with the fursuit was solved, period, and "hearsay" is not valid info, by the way. You are taking the side of Lemonbrat to bash the other user with unreferenced/NPOV statements under the guise of reporting a possible "beware" situation. Slam the user directly if you wish, don't hide behind the, again, resolve, non-notable, fursuit matter. - Spirou (talk) 23:15, 18 August 2019 (EDT)
Except I provided a link directly to the beware and included exactly what had happened. Just because what had happened made Camaro turn out worse
That doesn’t mean bias, that means truth. The mere fact you are calling easily shown and proven circumstances bias just shows your own. And again, what part of just because something is solved doesn’t mean it didn’t happen do you not get. That’s like saying that someone killed someone was found guilty, does that mean it didn’t happen? No, it doesn’t. Way to hide the actions of another person and taking her side ignoring legitimate proof. Good to know that this site is about as bad as encyclopedia Dramatica, if not worse as you peddle in bias and lies. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2601:603:4d00:6:c5aa:f3be:e87a:710c (talkcontribs) .
I looked through what was on the page, and it definitely is not worded with NPOV, and cites no other sources other than the beware, which quite frankly, doesn't even put the situation in favor of Lemonbrat as the wiki text did, that's pretty obvious by reading the comments of the beware posting. There is no bias here - if someone had posted something bashing Lemonbrat, we'd have dealt with it in the same way. --FrostTheFox (talk) 21:58, 24 August 2019 (EDT)

Excuse me, I've got a question for you![edit]

How come you deleted that "To whom it may concern..." message from WikiFur? This is a VERY serious message I put on the talk pages of Scotty Arsenault and Commander Kitty!

So, did you get it? I need the answer now! Thank you!

--83.185.35.154 01:02, 31 August 2019 (EDT)

Yes, it was reverted because you erased other users posts on those articles. Now take this one out or I will take it out for message spamming. - Spirou (talk) 02:28, 31 August 2019 (EDT)
I'm DEEPLY sorry, Spirou! I did NOT mean to erase other users posts on those articles! I don't know what to do, but PLEASE don't block me! :'( --83.185.35.154 02:59, 31 August 2019 (EDT)

From Fruxuyup Artist[edit]

Hello. I am writing to request personal exclusion from the website. There is currently a page to the same name as the one above, which I wish to be removed. Thank you. -Fruxuyup Artist (18/09/2019)

Jalen D Folf[edit]

I have already made my case on the article's Talk page and will reiterate here: a lot of the information presented on the current version of the article is not up to date. Jalen has changed his fursona since the image was uploaded, has stopped using the "jd22292" name, subsequently changing his social media accounts, has more recently dropped the D from his name, and has gained new social media accounts, such as at Twitch. I doubt he even meets this Wiki's notability criteria. 2601:589:8000:D340:2464:3DE4:C26F:84E0 20:25, 19 September 2019 (EDT)

Keziah[edit]

Hey there -- thank you for going over my addition to the Wiki! I'll be working on cleaning it up a bit more, and my apologies for the infobox usage; didn't know about the special pages usage for it, so thank you for correcting me there. Looking forward to helping contribute where I can! I appreciate your time and effort you put into the site. Cheers! --KEZIAH (talk) 04:00, 2 October 2019 (EDT)

Grrfret[edit]

Hi. Signed up for an account today, admittedly not having delved into the rules of this site first so I'll start off by apologizing if I've broken any. VPN was active when I signed up, also I used a protonmail account which has given me grief on a couple of other sites but I like it for its extra security. Anyway, a few hours after signing up for my first account (I've only browsed without signing in before), I received this message when I went to check my profile:

"This user is currently blocked. The latest block log entry is provided below for reference: 12:10, 24 September 2019 Spirou (Talk | contribs) blocked Grrfret (Talk | contribs) with an expiry time of 1 year (account creation disabled, email disabled, cannot edit own talk page) (Ban evasion: Account spamming (continuing))"

I assume this has either something to do with my VPN, protonmail or combination of both. Is there anything I can do to get unbanned?

Thanks!

- Just a quick update to say thank you very much for restoring my username to unbanned status :)

Dove Windsor article[edit]

Thank you for deleting Dove Windsor. I kind of wished that I didn't add my personal information in the first place. At least it has been deleted. Thank you! --EOG (talk) 09:20, 18 October 2019 (EDT)

Tabyhunterwolf[edit]

I need help, there's one page originated by original fursona owner page had disabled public edit, I would like to add more info about him, I know him very well and I meet him in Furs Upon Malaysia (FURUM) personally, I tried to edit but failed to do so. Curator pls help. Could you change from disable public edit to public edit? That will allow me to add more info about this furry.

Tabyhunterwolf I[edit]

Stop deleting my pages without permission, I had put a lot of efforts on my wikis, you deleted without coticing me, that's really rude! :( Restore it back! You making me sick! Also this website don't have a page to save draft without posting to public.I also need thinking what to write. - Tabyhunterwolf(talk) (7 November 2019 6:07 PM Malaysia Time)

Unfinished articles need to be finished, you cannot keep creating half done jobs (been going around all the articles you have created and added to, and it's been a pain to re-edit them). No, is not rude, rude is creating one paragraph articles like Ben-Ben without giving editors enough material to work with, or half dangling ones like Seelmaru that didn't have the basic syntax necessary to complete it.
Also this website don't have a page to save draft,... I'm looking at it right now, it is called Show Preview, one of three buttons sandwiched between Save page and Show changes. And if you need time to work on an article, use a text editor to work offline or use the future article's user page to mock it up, preview it, then posting it (while consulting the Furry Book of Style for tips). Hope this helps. - Spirou (talk) 05:29, 7 November 2019 (EST)

Tabyhunterwolf II[edit]

Could you upload my works online, at least I can have a track about my work. - Tabyhunterwolf (talk) (7 November 2019 6:35 PM Malaysia Time)

Tabyhunterwolf III[edit]

I just couldn't understand why you had deleted collaborations & convention attencdance on "Majira Strawberry's page, although they are based on true information. Your edits made me quite confused. You just couldn't respect people's hardwork, you just delete whatever you think it's wrong information, I actually watch all Majira Strawberry's Youtube video for a few hours, you didn't even watch all Majira Strawberry's videos. >:( - Tabyhunterwolf (talk) (14 November 2019 11:18 AM Malaysia Time)

The convention dates should have stayed on my last edit, it seems it was a failed copy/paste. The collaboration section is non-notable, bloated and is too common (everybody collaborates, it doesn't need to be announced everywhere). The image influx is excessive as it is, the least notable ones (i.e. a social media front page screenshot) can go. You should be careful in your continuing edits, as you keep adding redundant info over and over, in data and internal/external links. This is an informative article, not a vanity one - Spirou (talk) 22:51, 13 November 2019 (EST)

Tabyhunterwolf IV[edit]

You are still escaping my question, the point is you didn't even watch Majira Strawberry's whole youtube channel videos, you just edit out all my serious hardwork, that's really disrecpectfull. You kept escaping my question, didn't even admit that you were wrong at this answer. That's why some furries quit editing & contributing to Wiki Fur. Just quit doing your bullshit edits and watch all Majira Strawberry's videos before you delet all my edits. - Tabyhunterwolf (talk) (14 November 2019 12:23 PM Malaysia Time)

Watch your language and don't revert valid edits. You only get one warning. - Spirou (talk) 23:24, 13 November 2019 (EST)

Saros[edit]

Saphy has a track record of doing exactly what he’s being accused of, and the fact that it’s a con itself saying it means it holds much more weight than random twitter comments. Oh and “the allegations aren’t explained”? Can you not read? It’s pretty black and white. How about doing research before trying to protect Saphy again. Using your power to further your own views rather than facts. Seems to be a track record for you. I’ll take note —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 134.39.241.130 (talkcontribs) .

Create an account (or wait until the temp protection expires) and provide enough reference material for the allegation to stick. Until then, you are just another anon IP accuser insinuating a non-backed up claim in need of verification. - Spirou (talk) 14:00, 14 November 2019 (EST)
So the word of the chair and vice chair of a convention isn’t enough? Way to defend the attacker and not the victim? If you knew anything about Saphy in the slightest, you would know what they said he did is par for the course. The letter happened, I linked the letter. Unsubstantiated my butt. And it’s not me making the accusation, it’s a full fledged con. You think Saphy is innocent talk to them, in the meantime, the letter was sent, saphys record does him in, and you need to act like an admin and stop cherry-picking what you want in articles. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 134.39.241.130 (talkcontribs) .
Is not about this person is innocent or guilty, is about the allegation being unreferenced. And, as the accuser, is your responsibility to provide the information needed to substantiate the claim (we are not, but we could, just add a [citation needed] tag and hope for the best). Oh, I already looked it up the first time it appeared on November 11 (the article Saph is very often targeted, so it's not unknown to us, "allegations" wise), still needs references to become valid article data. - Spirou (talk) 14:39, 14 November 2019 (EST)

An ashamed Malaysian fur[edit]

Hi there. There's this Tabyhunterwolf guy that has been around and doing an editing spree on furcons and other people. He said it was 'A contribution to the furry fandom'. We, the others sees it as an unnecessary effort as he was new in the community. I know this is a strange request, but can you revert back all of the changes he made on every country furcons and people/character/fursona to the point before he edits them. This is on behalf of other people as well because it makes us, the Malaysian Fur Community looks bad. Thank you, and sorry this happened to you and your colleagues. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2405:3800:282:fb53:d015:a3a2:ff08:363 (talkcontribs) .

Instead of reverting all off his edits, it would be more efficient of just editing out the wrong or inaccurate data, which editors and curators already have done, and will continue to do so. - Spirou (talk) 02:50, 2 December 2019 (EST)

The Lupin V Wolfe controversy[edit]

Question: Why have you locked the Lupin V Wolfe stub on the bad version, the one with less references & links, the one requiring clarifications and citations? The one Furry Underbelly, without any supporting evidence, insists is the truth, while the real Lupin's version included references. Look, I'm the Lupin Wolfe, not Lupin V Wolfe, who's information is in that dox. They went after Lupin V and found me instead. And nobody wants to drop it. I would not care, or even be aware of it, except for people coming to me because they thought I committed suicide over cyber-bullying. Again, mistaken identity, but in reverse this time. So, with respect for the dead, and because I know I'm not him, I've taken to maintaining the correct version of Lupin V's page. And now, "for Christmas," you have locked the page on the version with my information attributed to someone else! Lupin V Wolfe was right: Furry Underbelly I a damned Vandal, even if you ignore their motives. They are taking down a well-referenced and formatted Wiki page, in favor of an interior one, which now two people are contesting the validity of. If you care so much about WikiFur, why don't you lock the version that is more well-composed and -referenced? Not to mention contains less information, and poorer references. This is beginning to look like the Encyclopedia Dramatica! If you can lock pages, why don't you lock it on the version that the person it was about wanted when they died? The other Lupin Wolfe (talk) 14:11, 25 December 2019 (EST)

You can edit the page again at the beginning of the year, take a break until then. - Spirou (talk) 13:58, 28 December 2019 (EST)

Delete Page[edit]

Hello! I recently attempted to post a deletion request for a page containing my real name *deleted* and information about where I lived. I don't want to be listed on WikiFur, under any moniker, and definitely not under my real name. I am frequently the target of real world doxxing attacks from alt-right trolls and this page makes me less safe. Unfortunately you restored the personal information, so I am trying again to request that WikiFur delete the page under your Personal Exclusion policy. If you could also delete reference to the page in this comment, I would appreciate it.

Happy to verify my identity via other means, if necessary, but my data needs to be deleted off of this website. Thanks! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 64.74.136.165 (talkcontribs) .

Possible to delete page + all of its edit histories?[edit]

Thanks for editing my page https://en.wikifur.com/wiki/The_Realist through the years. I made some dumb mistakes oversharing info all over when I was in university, and this corner of the Internet was no exception to that habit I had back then. I've had to go through and update things to explain the content of the previous versions, which led to more explaining, which kind of snowballed out of control and led to the fluff-filled mess that is my page today. Nobody should have to read all of that. Since trying to explain things spiraled out of control, I'd like to ask if it's possible to just erase this page from the site while I'm still relatively a nobody... maybe to start over years from now if I ever gain some traction in the community? Any assistance would be appreciated, thanks.

Suspicious edits[edit]

You banned the creator of this edit: https://en.wikifur.com/w/index.php?title=Furry_Survey&curid=21379&diff=522410&oldid=468525 but, after the fact, I realise that the author of this edit may be the same person: https://en.wikifur.com/w/index.php?title=Furry_Survey&curid=21379&diff=522411&oldid=522410

I realised the first edit may have been done solely to slip in the second edit, which, if you compare it to the edit before both of those... (by using my own correction diff, too) the words "positive" and "negative" are swapped. i.e. making an influential change by disguising it as an undo. So you should probably consider the second person bannable too, given his changes were very very intentional.

My posts were deleted, and I'd like to recover my files[edit]

My posts on Awiti and Lira were recently taken down, and I was wondering if the information is still available in some way. I apologise for the insuffiency that the posts lacked; I generally had no idea that leaving areas unkempt would be an issue, and I have to ask, is there a way to repost them once I've gotten everything sorted out, or will it risk a ban? I only ask, cause a lot of the work was an expansion on pre-existing stories that I'd planned to publish.

I also apologise if Lira's post was too NSFW. I'll refrain in future.

Thanks for fixing up my page (Jack Newhorse)[edit]

Hey, Spirou. Just a quick note to thank you for bringing my page up to Wiki standards, and my apologies for not having it right the first time. (I'm a very occasional Wiki editor.)

Still Would Like My Page Deleted, Please[edit]

Greetings. I left a message on this page over 2 months ago requesting my page https://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Sean_Christopher_Hayes have its history deleted. The message seems to have gone completely ignored. I have no other way of contacting you, since your Twitter blocks DMs and I don't think you check FA anymore. I don't know what else to do. I've cleaned up the page itself, but everything I want deleted is still very much visible publicly in the "History" section. I made some over-sharing mistakes on my userpage when I was younger, and I'd rather not have those immortalized on the page history forever. If it's at all possible, please erase everything from History at minimum, if not the entire page and all references to it directly. I would do it myself but I do not see an option to do so anywhere at all. Thanks. User:Therealist

Sorry, yes, you did post a note here, it seems I just failed to notice, my bad. Also, you are indeed correct about my Twitter's DMs not allowing people to contact me (fixed that too, thanks). No, my Fur Affinity's Spirou account is still off-limits due to the (years ago) FA's Password Fiasco (not fixed yet).
Since you are one of the original editors of the article, and you indeed tried to contact me via Twitter (which create an error I was able to confirm), I can go ahead and Protect Exclude your article in a couple of minutes. Thank you for getting back to me, and thanks for the info about my Twitter account (it does explain some past issues). - Spirou (talk) 20:34, 25 March 2020 (EDT)

Question about "formerly known as" change to my page[edit]

I appreciate the change saying "otherwise known as" Doathejackalope, which is totally fair since that's what all my art pages are, I don't really understand the previously known as addition though. That last name is something I used for exactly like 1 month ten years ago when I initially created my page, I've only ever gone as Doa or DoaTheJackalope since. I only popped over to edit this page because I was reminded it existed and was incredibly outdated. When I first created my entry I just had it as Doa but for some formatting reason the page was moved to my full name at that time. If anyone ever saw or used that name it was because of this entry, I didn't use it anywhere else. May I just politely ask for the page to not mention it or for the page to simply be "Doa"? - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Destroyer-of-ants (talkcontribs) .

It's been there for 10 years, so people have viewed that data as valid all this time, but if you think the info is not longer valid you can edit it without asking for permission. - Spirou (talk) 22:03, 3 April 2020 (EDT)

Azure (USA) article title[edit]

Hi Spirou! What if there are multiple Azure in the USA? This is extremely likely. The current Azure on FurryMUCK is also in the USA, and multiple other Azures listed on the Azure disambiguation page seem to be in the US too, as evidenced by them visiting US fur cons. I think using someone's first name works. I was also considering Azure (Bluemew) as a title name, since Bluemew is his WikiFur username. Make sure to fix the red link on the Azure disambiguation page when you're done. Thanks! Novaaa (talk) 23:27, 16 April 2020 (EDT)

If there are multiple Azures within on single country, then move it to states, then city, or a station in the fandom (furry fan, fursuiter, or furry artist. Also, you need to remove the Furrymuck data from the article regarding Azure/Rich so I can move some Azure articles around. - Spirou (talk) 23:52, 16 April 2020 (EDT)
I don't think there's need to remove the information about Rich's time MUCKing on FurryMUCK. As long as it's properly past-tensed, and clear the current Azure username/character on FurryMUCK isn't him, it's still a part of Rich's history. Novaaa (talk) 00:08, 17 April 2020 (EDT)
So both Azure/Rich and the Furrymuck character Azure's player (Bluemew) are on the same MUCK?. Are you starting an article on him/her/they?. Is there more info to be added, both on Azure/Rich and Azure/Bluemew?. If so, please go ahead and add/create them so I can expand the Azure disambiguation page with additional data and other Azures - Spirou (talk) 02:56, 17 April 2020 (EDT)

Rich = Bluemew. A single person. I'm offering that the article title for him could be Azure (Bluemew). I'm not starting an article on the Azure (Fox) who is the Azure currently on FurryMUCK, since he didn't seem to desire an article on him when I was mentioning this to him.

Maus Merryjest[edit]

Hello, Spirou- I sent you a message on your twitter regarding an issue of cyber-stalking and vandalism and protection of our wikifur pages. Because we're trying to avoid further flare-ups with said stalker, I'd prefer if we could speak further of this there. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Vorpalcheshire (talkcontribs) .

Got your DM, will work on the Exclusion in a bit. - Spirou (talk) 23:17, 28 April 2020 (EDT)

Regarding the Ryker122 page vandalism[edit]

Hey!

First of all I wanted to thank you for being so quick to react to the vandalism of the Ryker122 page last night. It was in response to an attack on another platform and I was only told it had happened about an hour ago. But I'd also like to raise a question. Is it possible to remove some of the information on the page completely? I have no idea who made the page and the majority of the info is false and quite damaging, as I feel like it has the potential to affect professional connections I have outside of the community. Not only that but, no offence, I'd rather not have my personal info and real name link back to a furry site when employers review my online presence.I figured I should consult someone first incase the deletion is listed as vandalism, as I'm not familiar with how this site works,

Thank you! --Ryker122 (talk) 06:11, 1 May 2020 (EDT)

I will edit out the bare bones IRL info, you can edit more if you wish. - Spirou (talk) 22:34, 1 May 2020 (EDT)

Fluke[edit]

Hello, was wondering why you reverted my changes to Fluke Huskies Wikifur page. The location I gave although approximate is rather accurate so I am slightly confused by the removal of my addition. Thank you. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Huzoidiys (talkcontribs) .

Actually that shouldn't have happened. I may have hit the rollback button when scrolling with my iPhone (not the first time that that has happened, a bad case of "sausage fingers"), but it looks like you have fixed it. Sry about that. - Spirou (talk) 05:55, 15 May 2020 (EDT)

Irwin's page gone/moved after last change?[edit]

Hi, I changed the info on my page for the first time since 2013, and then the whole page was removed. I've created an account now, and have tried to write here before, will try again. - Have I done something wrong? - Can you roll back the removal/move so I can work with it from the latest change?

Regards, —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Irwin (talkcontribs) ./Peter

Hallo. Fursona/character articles normally (unless very notable) reside stay within its creator's article. The data is not deleted but transferred to the creator's article, and if none is found, to the creator's user page until such time an article for him/her/they is created and merged. - Spirou (talk) 18:51, 22 May 2020 (EDT)
Thank you for the clarification! But I still can't find the page, I've searched for it and looked for it in my account. I've been writing on that page for years, but not gotten an account before. I'm using Telia.com as Internet provider, så my IP will probably change with every time I go online. So perhaps you've placed the page in the creator's article, but that's just an IP number, as far as I know.
- Could you place the page in my article instead?
Regards,
Irwin/Peter
I'm sorry, are looking for the fursona page (it is on your user page) or your own (personal) article?. Do you have or created an user's article yet?. - Spirou (talk) 02:37, 25 May 2020 (EDT)
I'm not sure about the nomenclature here, but it's probably the fursona page I'm looking for. Sometime over a decade ago, I wrote an article on Wikifur about Irwin without having an account. I've added things over the years, and I've had a link to it from FA for years:
http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Irwin
It was at least listed among Swedish fursonas.
I cut out some text from it maybe a week ago, then you moved it somewhere or erased it, and I can't find it again. So I decided to create an account(?) here, and now I have created what I hope is a user's article by just writing a sentence.
https://en.wikifur.com/wiki/User:Irwin
I didn't want to do more without asking you what was wrong with the article/page, or if the page was just moved somewhere. I'm slowly trying to learn how to even pose questions with links back to my user and Talk pages...
Regards,
Irwin (talk)/Peter
Ah ha, I see known. The problem was the article was only about your fursona, not you. Unless a fursona is notable enough to have its own article, it normally resides within its creator's user article (let's use the example of Bambioids, normally characters created by Jerry Collins, and modeled by Bob Hill, its fandom notable enough to have its own Bambioid article). If not, fursona articles used to be deleted, but, as said before, they are now saved on a creator's user page waiting for integration.
So the best thing for you to do is to create your own Irwin (person) article (furry fan, furry artist, fursuiter, YouTuber and/or whatnot), and then transfer your fursona data here to it. Am I clear what is normally required?. Please say so if I still not coming thru, thanks. - Spirou (talk) 02:53, 27 May 2020 (EDT)

Help?[edit]

Do you know how to change an account's email? I left a similar question on GreenReaper's page and haven't received a reply.

Also, do you think that a page on Sonic the Hedgehog toys would be good enough, or should I put that as a section on the main article? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by SonicFish (talkcontribs) .

Greenreaper will help you out with account help (I don't think I'm able to make those changes, even being a curator); Toys or products would go in the main Sonic the Hedgehog article, but unless is furry related (plush), products and toys are not normally covered (also unless notable). - Spirou (talk) 17:59, 31 May 2020 (EDT)
Are you sure? I checked the SNN page on toys and they seem like a large part of the series. Anyway, thanks for your response! --SonicFish (talk) 10:13, 1 June 2020 (EDT)
Edit: This is the page I was talking about: Jazwares on Sonic News Network.
Quite sure, the notable exceptions being plush toys, Meeko and Bad Dragon's adult|toys. The crowbar is not a toy, but is the perfect example how a mainstream object is listed because is a notable article item when related to the furry fandom's arts. - Spirou (talk) 21:09, 2 June 2020 (EDT)

Edit permissions[edit]

Is it possible to lock a page to registered user edits only?

There's an Australian IP address, a Canadian address, and a Swiss address that have all edited my wiki page to some extent. The Aussie one is benign, but the Canadian one and the Swiss one are both malicious and are floating in from Reddit. Couple users there have been stalking me constantly across that site and one of them had vandalized my wiki page.

--WhiteTigerOfTheNorth (talk)

No, sorry. Short of Personal Exclusion and deletion, anybody is allowed to edit any article on this wiki. If they continue to vandalize any entry over and over (which are normally reversed almost immediately), they would finally be perma-banned, which normally tells any reasonable troll "You are done" (there are a few which are adamant on learning that vandalism is futile on their part but continue to do so, but even those get bored with it eventually). Is the editors vs vandals, but in the last 15 years, nobody has been that stupid enough to just drudge on defacing a page for long.
Your article will be taken care of by most editors, so it's up to them of how much RL time and effort they are willing to waste on the endeavor. In short, it is a game of waiting them out. I hope this info helps. -Spirou (talk) 04:06, 2 June 2020 (EDT)


Well I know the username of the person who keeps doing it. They left their original Swiss IP in one of the edits, and then switched to NordVPN. I mean really, I called you out, using a VPN is just telltale that it's the same person.

I know that the Official Wikipedia has some sort of 'protection' so that only staff are allowed to edit.

Kai Llewellyn[edit]

I wish to have my page on WikiFur removed under the request for exclusion rule. How do I go about doing that? It's (https://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Kai_Glyn_Llewellyn) Thanks -WikiKai (talk) 11:14, June 7 2020 (PDT)

Hallo. Sure, please DM me on Twitter at @spirouwikifur for confirmation to start your Personal Exclusion. - Spirou (talk) 16:06, 7 June 2020 (EDT)
Thanks for the confirmation DM, will start with the exclusion of your article. - Spirou (talk) 19:40, 10 June 2020 (EDT)

Deleting pages[edit]

Could you delete these pages: Sleet (character) https://en.wikifur.com/w/images/d/dd/Sleet.png - —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 207.38.88.127 (talkcontribs) .

Hmm, no. This is an actual mainstream character from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, not an user's OC or fursona - Spirou (talk) 18:58, 30 June 2020 (EDT)

Niss(e)[edit]

Hi, sorry to bother you but I'd like to have my page (Nisse) removed please. (That also removes the history, right?) Thanks! Nisse (talk) 11:20, 5 July 2020 (EDT)

Hi. Just send me a DM to @SpirouWikifur on Twitter to initiate Personal Exclusion. The article's history will have to be deleted/hidden by one of the higher level Curators, like GreenReaper. - Spirou (talk) 13:55, 5 July 2020 (EDT)


Zxarr[edit]

Hi there. I saw a wiki about me and noticed you started it. Not upset or anything, but do I know you? Just wondering where you found that information... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 192.0.233.254 (talkcontribs) .

Hallo. The article was created from a red link from an existing user in Wikifur, but you already knew that since you already have edited your article twice under the alias Zxarr in 2019, didn't you?. Is there an issue that needs to be fixed? (wrong info?, RL needed to be deleted?), just ask, we will fix it. - Spirou (talk) 22:33, 5 July 2020 (EDT)

Hex Furfest[edit]

Greetings, Spirou. Hex Furfest is requesting the article's name to be changed to "Hex Furryfest" because of a trademark complaint with the name of the convention. thanks! Sincerely, Meeran 19:12, 20 July 2020 (EDT)
Will do. - Spirou (talk) 19:22, 20 July 2020 (EDT)

Meeran[edit]

Hi, Spirou. I uploaded this file, but realized 1. I mislabeled it; 2. It was already uploaded by someone else. Could you please remove this file? Thank you! P.S. Could you re-direct Furrydelphia Virtualcon to the 2020 section of Furrydelphia?

Hi Meeran, no prob. Done and done. Also, I don't check my Twitter account that often unless I need to receive a Personal Exclusion request, so I just saw your message just now. In response, here or Twitter is fine for contact. =) - Spirou (talk) 01:22, 17 August 2020 (EDT)
Hi again, Spirou. Today, I came across this and this on Wikifur. Most of the VR conventions that have happened take place in a game called VRChat. Is there a possibility you could add that sub-category, and I can learn how to tag and categorize the appropriate articles? I'll try my best. Thanks! -Meeran 16:18, 24 August 2020 (EDT)
EDIT: I created VRChat and this to help with that. Thank you again. -Meeran 10:18, 25 August 2020 (EDT)
Hmm, looks like you are a bit ahead of me. =) The only thing is the VRChat article, I will make a few changes, but is almost there - Spirou (talk) 22:32, 25 August 2020 (EDT)
Happy Saturday, Spirou! =) Is there a way I can help you get rid of name spammers? I hate seeing the changelog get flooded with it. Thanks! -Meeran 13:38, 5 September 2020 (EDT)
Unfortunately, the name spamming is a bit difficult to tackle. We can block some of the user accounts and based on their IP, some will be autoblocked by MediaWiki, but the true solution is identifying some of the IP ranges the spamming is going on from and putting in some IP range blocks, but that can only be done by CheckUser, which only GreenReaper and Mwalimu have the permissions to do. Depending on the amount of IP ranges they're coming from, it may or may not be an effective strategy. --FrostTheFox (talk) 15:01, 5 September 2020 (EDT)
@Meeranm, more or less what FrostTheFox has explained above is the jist of the issue. - Spirou (talk) 23:02, 5 September 2020 (EDT)
Frost and Spirou, thank you for explaning this to me! =) -Meeran 23:30, 5 September 2020 (EDT)

Sweetie The Protogen[edit]

Hello there "Spirou", I am speaking on behalf of my friend / account owner for the creator of the "Makemeä" Species.

We have been working on over the past few days on this website trying to make a detailed documentation of our fictional "Makemeä" Species.

https://en.wikifur.com/wiki/User:YuumaKuma

When at "13:05 on 19th of September" you used your position of power on the website, to "Delete the page" and transfered the data to YuumaKuma's page for safe keeping, until we managed to create a personal statement / article around the user YuumaKuma.

As of recently me and YuumaKuma have been working together to this issue, by making sure that some information is specified on her account.

Would it be possible at this time for us to resume our plans to create this "Makemeä" Species page properly? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sweetie The Protogen (talkcontribs) .

You can continue to work with the Makemeä species presently in YuumaKuma's user page. After you create its creator's article (can't see one at present time), the species data can be inserted in as a section in it. But as a standalone, presently, no. Is not propagated through furry lore, nor notable enough for (X) reasons, hence the initial move to the talk page. Hope this helps. - Spirou (talk) 17:03, 29 September 2020 (EDT)

(Edit 02/10/2020 at 21:13) - User: Sweetie The Protogen

I think I understand what needs to be done and how to do it, thank you for responding.

I shall update this conversation if any notable progress is made.

Online furry conventions[edit]

Hi Spirou, please take a look at the Online furry conventions article when possible. The references have all been cleaned up, so perhaps one or more of the article flags can be reviewed for removal. Thanks! --TJCoyote (talk) 22:42, 19 October 2020 (EDT)

User Vandalised Community Central[edit]

I just undid vandalism on Community Central by User:KillFurries1298. I don't really know where to report things like this. It looked like you were the last one to moderate the Community Central page, so I assumed putting this here was fine. TheDocTrier (talk) 07:50, 20 October 2020 (EDT)

It looks like a lot of pages were affected. You can find links to a handful of the pages at the shared image File:Killfurries.jpeg. TheDocTrier (talk) 07:56, 20 October 2020 (EDT)
