Thought I'd make this entry as accurate as possible. Considering I built the thing in the first place, I ought to be the best source of information on it.

Ta! --Coyote Seven

Neat! Thanks for the information. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 03:10, 25 Nov 2005 (UTC)

I think the picture of the WcotP comic version of this thing would be better positioned at the paragraph that describes it rather than at the beginning. As it looks right now, it is confusing.

Or otherwise, I would say to include a caption along the bottom of the picture indicating what depiction that is. I was actually thinking I'd get a picture drawn of the original VVM to put there, oddly enough. I just hadn't gotten around to that.

Addendum: I'll shrink the image when I get back home and move it to align with the Jim Groat paragraph. Later on I'll get a picture of the actual MUCK VVM and have it positioned where the Groat picture is right now.

--Coyote Seven

Sounds good. I used the image of the comic version because that was the only one available to me. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 14:52, 3 Jan 2006 (UTC)

Why didn't you contact me with regards to Conna Stevenson? After a small e-mail discussion very recently, I discover that someone here gave her a hard time for editing the reference to her picture here? One that I put in only because I remembered it and I wanted to show proof that Groat didn't invent this idea as he tried to claim once while chatting to me. Trust me, if I had known at the time that she was trying to distance herself from Furry stuff, I would have completely understood and removed the link myself.

I hate to think I unwittingly caused her grief.  :(

Update: Apparently it was just because she didn't provide a reason for removing it. Granted that she should have probably identified herself. But still if she'd talked to me directly I would have removed it myself.

I would like to note, however, that her removal of the link in this article was unlike any of the vandalism attacks. Maybe sending me a note about the change first before changing it back so I could personally investigate the reason why might have been a better idea?

--Coyote Seven

I'm not sure this really counts as "a hard time". People try to remove information from WikiFur all the time, and if they don't leave a reason then they're going to get called on it. We don't want to cause people grief, but we also don't really want them removing relevant information without knowing who they are or why they're doing it, either.
If you want that kind of oversight of an article, you should really watch it and set your email preferences so that it emails you when it changes. We get 300 edits a day, we can't manually tell every majority contributor to every article about changes. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 19:11, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Conna Stevenson reference[edit]

Would it be gauche of me to ask that the reference to me my now-gone artwork be removed?

I bear no one any ill will about this, I'd just like to remove traces from places I no longer frequent as it's not relevant any more. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Connastev (talkcontribs) .

Can you point out where this reference is, please? I just took a look through the article and didn't see anything obvious. Thanks. --Douglas Muth 05:11, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

"Besides Groat, the Vixen Vending Machine caught the attention of other furry artists, including Conna Stevenson of Yerf, who drew a small comic about it." I will edit it, and if that's unacceptable let me know. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Connastev (talkcontribs) .

I just checked the page, and I think your edit looks just fine to me. :-) --Douglas Muth 19:14, 17 September 2006 (UTC)
My thanks again. --Connastev 23:00, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Display problems[edit]

Since the last edit, this page is erroneously displaying a slightly mangled older revision when not logged into an account. Is there a way to fix this?

--Coyote Seven

Try refreshing the page (Command+R on Apple, F5 on Windows) - Spirou 03:45, 1 July 2013 (EDT)
OK this is strange. I need you to look at the page using a different web browser that you normally use. Right now it's showing up correctly for me on FireFox (even though it didn't before I'd logged in, but right now it shows I'm logged out). I've also got it on IE and there it's showing the messed up version that I've been getting for the past couple of days. --Coyote Seven
EDIT -- Just to show exactly what I'm seeing...
In Pale Moon, which I normally use (after I'd logged in and then got logged out later):
Meanwhile, in Internet Explorer:
Here's what it looked like right now at work, before I logged into WikiFur:
I should note that even this discussion page was from an older revision and doesn't include the comments I added last night.
After logging in, the page looks fine.
Now I'm logged out and I reloaded the page and it still looks fine. Strange.
Looks like this isn't limited to this article. My friend can't see the additions I've made to the Talk pages either here or about the SPR entry.

I have accessed the page logged on and off, with Apple OSX 10.6/10.7/10.8 on an iMac, Mac Pro and Mac Book Pro, with Apple IOS 6 on an iPhone and iPad, on Windows 7/8 on Dells, and with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) on a Nexus 10, with a Safari, Firefox and Chrome browser (web and smartphone based). The page still displays fine.

Try logging on/off, hard refresh the page, clearing cookies and/or caches, or reset your browser - Spirou 02:42, 2 July 2013 (EDT)

Did you try it with a computer you do not normally use? Or better yet, one you've never used before and which has likely never been pointed to this website before. I've already gotten proof that this happens with other people's computers besides the ones I use. So I'm entirely certain it's not any sort of issue on my end.
Tho I did get Green Reaper's attention about it and he said it might be "possibly a cache difference between cookie'd and non-cookie access. Even if logged out they have a cookie." He said he'd look into it after AC so I'm cool with that.

"Did you try it with a computer you do not normally use?". Yes, I don't own Dells, neither do I have a Android Tablet, but they are accessible to me via a third party for tests. A further test with Windows XP on a Apple's MacBook Air (via Bootcamp), brings the page up fine - Spirou 15:25, 5 July 2013 (EDT)
OK, there must have been a cache update. Now I can see the page properly whether logged in or not and regardless of cookies or not, as can my friend. However I'll note the discussion page has not yet been caught up. You really should be keeping on top of this. This is a real problem on your guys end, I'm not making it up! --Coyote Seven 22:28, 7 July 2013 (EDT)
