When making multiple edits to an article, please use the "Show preview" button to view intermediate changes, and try to limit use of the "Save page" button to when you are finished making all of your changes. Frequent use of "Save page" during editing tends to clutter the article's edit history and the site's change log. Thank you. -- Sine 16:15, 17 November 2011 (EST)

About page FuRio and Neeru deletion
Not long ago, I requested the deletion of pages FuRio and Neeru right here.
Well, I understand your point, but I believe I was actually the creator of both pages, and not exactly a third-party. In any doubt, feel free to check my IP and/or contributions to the pages, please; You will see it's me. The only reason I'm asking for the permanent deletion is because I can't do it myself, due to lack of knowledge or else. And my point is to prevent any further harassment to the personal lives of the furmeeting's ex-staff members, which is already happening.
I hope you can understand my reasons.
- Sorry that I'm sending you two messages instead of one, I imagine people might be asking you a lot of stuff right now and I'm not helping.
- However I feel I should add I was not only the creator of both pages, but also the person they talk about. Neeru used to be my alias, and FuRio was a furmeeting I used to organize. I'm not taking anyone else's information away. And I can assure you it's no longer active, but still causing troubles.
- Thanks for your time once again. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Xnielsenx (talk • contribs) .
- The article Neeru was protected 2 hours ago. But, as indicated by Colleague Equivamp, we (typically) do not exclude articles about public events. The known existence of this particular venue seems to be already common public knowledge (see Google or Furry Brasil), we just report on it/make an historical entry about it - Spirou 18:04, 27 March 2013 (EDT)
"There are NAMES on it"
Once again, (A) this is an public entry about a public event (i.e. everybody already knows about it), (B) these are aliases, not real, personal names, (C) if people are currently harassing them via their aliases, even eliminating them from the article would not make them forget these, nor incapacitate them from telling others about it - Spirou 19:29, 28 March 2013 (EDT)
- Honestly, I don't see why is it a problem to cut off the names. People don't know about it, it was a small thing. Not to mention the information is >completely< outdated. This furmeet is dead for the past two years and the links don't even exist anymore. Why would you add it back? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Xnielsenx (talk • contribs) .
- "Honestly, I don't see why is it a problem to cut off the names", Aliases, not RL names. "People don't know about it, it was a small thing", enter Wikifur, keeper of all and anything Furry related, including Furmeets. "Not to mention the information is >completely< outdated". Past history is already >outdated< in principle, doesn't mean it cannot be written down for >future< readers. "This furmeet is dead for the past two years and the links don't even exist anymore". History, knowledge keeping, the purpose of this and any other Wiki. "Why would you add it back?". Reread this paragraph - Spirou 19:48, 28 March 2013 (EDT)
About FuRio once again. =
I apologize if I'm bothering the wikifur staff, and I understand the article holds some importance to this website, though me and the fellow ex members sincerely don't wish to be related to the article even by our aliases. Not to mention the information is completely outdated... The event is no longer active, it's dead by a couple of years, the links are gone and we would definitely not be asking for the details removal right now if it wasn't a real issue. But no matter what I do, the page is re-edited by one of the moderators who's now preventing me to do it again.
Can't we come to an agreement? You can keep the article, it's your right. But would you please delete the all the aliases, including the staff and ex-staff list and then change the status to inactive? I don't want to make this a big deal, but I really hope you can understand our rights and needs at this time. If I could do it myself, it would be resolved by now... But I'm afraid my hands are tied.
I can't speak for thirds, however I don't believe I need to bring the rest of the ex crew here to talk about it. Nor I wish to. It doesn't have to be a thing, and with all respect, I also don't believe it's up to an outsider to define how we should face these events.
So please, again... Would you do it for me? All I'm asking is for the aliases to be gone and the status to be changed to inactive. The rest of the article can stay as you please. It was all I tried to do earlier by editing, you can check if you need. I really hope I'm not asking much.
- If the other people involved want their articles to be excluded, they need to request it themselves. The aliases (which, as has already been pointed out, are not real names and excluding them will not stop harassment) are not likely to be removed, as this is accurate historical information. The article can certainly be edited to show that it is no longer active, however.
- I am sorry you and your friends are being harassed, but to put the blame for it on WikiFur is a stretch. Equivamp - talk 13:55, 29 March 2013 (EDT)
If the article about you is has been excluded (meaning, even if someone clicks the links assosciated with your pseudonym, they won't be able to learn any information about you) what harm can it be? I'm not sure whether WikiFur has done this before, so I've posted a forum on the topic in hopes of reaching a consensus. Equivamp - talk 08:48, 9 April 2013 (EDT)
