Hi there, Xerxes, and welcome to WikiFur! Thanks for telling us a bit about yourself - let me know if you need any help not already provided. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 09:57, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome[edit]

Hey, GreenReaper. Thanks for welcoming me. As for your offer to help, I was wondering if you could give me an idea about what might get my fursona's article to lose its cleanup tag. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by XerxesQ (talkcontribs) .

Sure. Often, the user who put that tag on will have left a comment in the history. If it is not clear enough, or if there is no comment there, then you can ask them directly on their talk page. Making sure that an article sounds like an encyclopedia (e.g. avoids the use of an overly-informal tone) is generally a good idea, and the intent of many of the cleanup tags that are put on (we really need a few more specific tags than just cleanup). Of course, you don't have to agree with all of what they think is wrong about the article, and you can take the cleanup tag off once you think it's fine. They might then choose to do nothing, or edit it themselves, or give a more specific discussion on the talk page associated with the article. --GreenReaper(talk) 21:32, 13 January 2007 (UTC)
If there is a lot to say about the fursona, character, and person, and each of those is very distinct from the others, you could create seperate articles; otherwise, the information can all be within one article, but should be clearly distinguished. In particular, it's fine to talk about the personality of a character, but not of an actual person. There's a bit of format that needs to be changed to match our style, in the heading names and links, but that's a minor change, and might as well be left until you know the overall layout and content of the article or articles. -- Sine 07:53, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
The fursona and character are nearly indistinguishable from one another. It's one of the situations where a furcode would say he's a character to be roleplayed and to write stories about if you know what I mean. I only included the portion about myself because I modeled it off Nekonaru Letao's article, which has no cleanup tag. -- XerxesQ 20:35, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Moving stuff[edit]

Yo bud, just a heads up that you didn't actually move your article according to procedure; you should use the move feature to preserve article history, or ask an admin if you're otherwise unsure. I'll just sort that for ya. -- Alexander Greytc 21:55, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
