Hi there, Graafen, 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) 15:10, 9 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Hey ThalyiFace! ;) Welcome to da wiki! --Nidonocu - talk Nidonocu 10:57, 15 Dec 2005 (UTC)


I'm curious - why remove the Category:Werewolf characters from the article about you? We generally apply it to articles about people whose fursonas are the appropriate "species", although not if there is a separate article about the character under a different name. --GreenReaper(talk) 08:06, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

I don't feel that the term "Character" applies really. It insinuates that my werewolf side is a fabrication, whereas that is how I see myself spiritually and have done for a very long time.
The only characters I have are Thalyi and Boswell, they have always been pure fabrications and are the only ones I "play". Simply put, I am Graafen.
I hope this isn't too confusing.

Fair enough. We tend not to try and force categories on people that they feel are inappropriate, unless there's a good reason for believing otherwise. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 15:47, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
By the way, could you remove my article? I've moved all the info to my User page instead. The only reason it was there as an article anyway was a mistake. XD -- Graafen Blackpaw 15:52, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
I'm confused - it's an article about you, isn't it? It seems to be written neutrally in the third person. That would suggest that it should be at Graafen Blackpaw, not User:Graafen Blackpaw. You can see the difference at GreenReaper and User:GreenReaper - the first page is the one about me, while the second is the one from me. That is also why the {{Contributor}} tag has a link to your user page, because it's meant to be used in the main namespace (it is bold currently because you're already on that page).
When moving articles you should also use the Move tab, so that it preserves the history of article edits. --GreenReaper(talk) 16:10, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
I think I'm the more confused, but I get what you mean now. I've put everything back as it was. -- Graafen Blackpaw 16:21, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
Hehe, no problem. That's one reason wikis are great - it's easy to change things back, just click the old revision in the history, click edit, type a summary explaining the change and save.
Our main reasoning for having people in the main namespace is so that it's much easier for people to find and link to them there - and they're valid topics, so they shouldn't be shuffled off to another namespace. It also encourages neutral writing, which might be less so if people had the "main" articles about them on their user page, the content of which is traditionally at the user's discretion (unless there are major problems with it, in which case there's historically been major problems with the user as well :-). --GreenReaper(talk) 16:30, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

WikiFur News linkage[edit]

Hi GR!

I just wanted to point something out to you as I'm not sure if it's supposed to work this way or not.

I've noticed that the ConFuzzled article has this at the bottom:

However, the link one would expect to lead to the News article about ConFuzzled actually links back to the ConFuzzled article via:

This also happens with the Ursa Major Awards.

I'm not sure how to, or if I even can, rectify this myself so I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction or help out. :) --Graafen Blackpaw(talk) - 21st March 2007 - 17:47 (UTC)

Good call! This should be fixed now. Thanks for pointing it out. --GreenReaper(talk) 17:50, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Noble A Wolf?[edit]

I noticed Graafen Blackpaw article read “Boswell debuted at Further Confusion 2006. Created by Noble A. Wolf,”. I changed the link to point to Noble Wolf (aka Noble Arctic Wolf) because what I read indicated he is the Noble who did the Boswell fursuit (including the photos in his photo gallery) --EarthFurst 07:40, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
