About "admin" status.
I feel kind of weird for now noticing this, and even weirder for bringing it up, but I'll throw this out there anyway:
WikiFur:Administrators lists me as an admin, and you've also done it on the community LiveJournal which proves that it wasn't just a misclick or anything like that, but after looking up what I'd be able to do with this status, I notice that... well, none of it's there. :) I confirmed this by looking at the literal special page and notice that, while Osfer's name is on there, mine isn't.
Not harping on you to get right on this so I can go willy nilly on this here Internet Wikipedia machine, because that would be stupid, but can you double-check to see if you did add me to the actual admin database? Thanks. -- Verix 06:17, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Heh. It's pretty nifty that we each banned 18.104.22.168 at the same time. :-) --Dmuth 23:58, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Yeah. I think I've been monitoring the site since I woke up at like 12:30PM PST. I'm so addicted to this fucking site. D: -- Verix 23:59, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Verix, the Anthrochat article needs to update 'Memphis Fur Meet' to read 'Mephit Furmeet'. It's locked, so I can't do it. Gawd, I'm addicted to this too. :_( BlueOtter 14:49, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Doing it now. Give it like five seconds and it should be done.
- edit: Huh? Looking at the Anthrochat article, there's no mention of MFM... --Verix 22:08, 17 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Verix, what does "mark this article as patrolled" mean? I noticed this link today but aren't sure what happens if I click it. BlueOtter 01:15, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Honestly, I have no clue. I think it means if you click it, admins are watching it, but then again it appears that regular users have that link enabled... Check Wikipedia, they might have something on it. --Verix 01:27, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Changes on the Recent changes page have little exclamation points next to them. If you look at the change and see that it not vandalism, click Mark as Patrolled and it will remove the little ! on Recent Changes. This means that multiple users can keep track of changes easily. You can't patrol changes if you are not signed in and it is considered good form I think to not mark your own changes as patrolled.. if you can. I've never tried this though. Hope that helps. :) -Nidonocu - talk 15:32, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Person pages vs. Personal pages
Since this is going unanswered in the Category talk:People section, I'm going to take this here. :>
I'd like to take initiative to start removing information that's too personal-- such as the likes and dislikes of a person, who they're friends with-- in order to make the people pages sound more informational and less like the person is advertising themselves to other possible friends or love interests. Not saying that these are bad, but inapropriate for something like this wiki, which is supposed to be an online encyclopedia.
Thoughts? --Verix 19:35, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
So yeah maybe you should consider locking up those templates. --? 20:34, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Yeah, I'm doing that right now. --Verix 20:34, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- Thanks! --Dmuth 20:39, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
On pre-emptive protection:
It wasn't pre-emptive. Yesterday there was perpetual vandalism going on on the front page from YTMND.com, spamming "GNAA™" and editing various other parts of the template where they'd just add something stupid. Just wanted to clarify that. :) --Verix 14:20, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- OK. :-) Just make sure you unprotect them when they go away again! Although I should really have noticed before someone else did. *grin* --GreenReaper(talk) 14:30, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Comments from other users
This section has been moved from Verix to User:Verix on the basis that it is not appropriate for articles in the main article space. For further information, see the section "...so tell us about yourself..." in WikiFur:What WikiFur is ----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 15:27, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
- Yeah, that seems more appropriate. Verix
FA and such
I just wanted to apologize, again-- though I guess to you directly-- for what I did the other day. I was responding more as damage control to prevent an explosion of drama rather than following the guidelines stipulated. This whole thing, though not directly affecting me, has seemed to've killed my patience and thinking. Thankfully it's cleared up now.
It won't happen again. Verix 17:57, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
