Alasker Heston[edit]

Thanks a lot for your help!! I'm still getting use to this site, but I aprreciate your help that there's no way to describe it!


Hello BlueOtter,
I'm a little curious why you removed the [[Category:1982 births]] from Kithylin. Categories are there to reflect the article text, and a birth year of 1982 is given there. I'm also curious about your comment removed date of birth category --- no citation for that anyway, when there is a citation (number 4) given in the article.--Higgs Raccoon 10:20, 12 July 2012 (EDT)

My apologies, Higgs! My statement about a lack of citation was incorrect, but my edit also could have been much better described. It was in response to a mostly page-blank edit to an otherwise good article. The reason given by the anonymous user was "Edited by Kithylin - Contained personal information that I do not want listed on this website.". Because the article contains good information, particularly about a founding member of a convention, making it historically important, I requested to the user that he follow the policy for making a formal exclusion request, providing identification. In an effort to prevent this page from being completely blanked with the {{Protected-Excluded}} template, I simply removed the only "personal" information I noticed on the article, the indication of real-life birth year, and noted that in my response to the user in the invitation to make a formal request. I also noted in my response that things like external links shouldn't be removed as they could be easily found and added again. I'm sorry my summary was unclear - it was misinformed as to the reference and lacked clarity as to why an otherwise correct piece of information was removed. --BlueOtter 10:45, 12 July 2012 (EDT)

Hoof Beat[edit]

Nice work putting Hoof Beat together. I imagine it'll remain a one-shot, but it'll probably be a topic of search interest for some time to come. --GreenReaper(talk) 06:09, 16 July 2012 (EDT)


thank you for editing my page, i created it before i made this account, is there a way to link my page to my account here so i can complete it with pictures? my ip should still be logged, if not then i can prove its me via fa, my website or any other form of contact

Hello, Syrik. I've put in tags so that the Article about you has a pointer to your User Page and vice-versa. Your User Page is a personal space where you can put whatever you want. This can include photographs/images. (Of course, images can also be added to the Article if you wish.)--Higgs Raccoon 12:15, 22 July 2012 (EDT)

Future plans[edit]

I've added a mention in Help:Furry Book of Style‎#Articles about people that future plans should not be included in articles. Aligning practice and style help! -- Sine 13:35, 30 July 2012 (EDT)

Can I have my article removed[edit] I wish to have this article removed COMPLETELY. thanks.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by SableQueanVilaya (talkcontribs) .

GreenReaper has made a note of your request for personal exclusion on the article's talk page. Assuming there are no objections within 24 hours, the article will then be deleted and locked against further edits. Any articles made for alternate identities will, of course, remain open for editing.--Higgs Raccoon 14:30, 4 August 2012 (EDT)

Changing my page.[edit]

May I know why my page info was changed? Thank you in advance. My page:

If you wish to revert to having an article about you on WikiFur, you are welcome to request to have BillyTheCat128 unlocked and restored. You could then edit that article, or move it across to CrescoTheEko if you prefer. You should note, however, that exclusive editing rights will not be granted. Although this was once a possibility, long ago, admins frown upon it now since i) it goes against the idea of a wiki where all may edit, and ii) it invariably resulted in an abandoned, unmaintained article.
So you choices are to remain excluded, or unlock your old article for all to edit.--Higgs Raccoon 15:27, 17 August 2012 (EDT)

In that case I wish to unlock my old article and I guess I should just keep a close eye on inaccuracies.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by BillyTheCat128 (talkcontribs) .

The article at BillyTheCat128 has been unlocked and restored, and moved across to your preferred name of CrescoTheEko. You are free to update it now. Have fun.--Higgs Raccoon 15:43, 17 August 2012 (EDT)

Bundaberg Furries on Channel 7[edit]

I noticed on Timeline of media coverage that it had the news Paper links to the Story about the Furries in the Bindabergbvg Botanic Gardens and I thought this link of a clip of channel 7's coverage might be useful: . I'm not entirely sure if I should add it myself, or if theres some submission process to do so, so I figured I should pass the link onto you :3 -- KaiAdin 06:39, 18 August 2012 (EDT)

Hello, KaiAdin. There's no submission process for the Timeline of media coverage, so feel free to edit it yourself and add in the link to Channel 7's coverage. Thanks for the info!--Higgs Raccoon 13:17, 18 August 2012 (EDT)

You vandal! You villain! You.. Page-poker![edit]

I was still working on my page, haha. Was surprised to see it edited so quickly xD -Shaun

Signups seem to be broken, by the way.[edit]

Getting this when I try to sign up for an account.

  • Fatal error: Call to undefined method LoginForm::getTitle() in /usr/local/www/wikifur/prod/en/w/includes/specials/SpecialUserlogin.php on line 306


Huh. Thanks for pointing it out, I'll pass a note on to GreenReaper and see what he says.--Higgs Raccoon 11:43, 3 September 2012 (EDT)
Looks like this was the result of backporting a security patch that used a feature not in our current version of MediaWiki. Fixed it now. Thanks for the heads-up! --GreenReaper(talk) 14:07, 3 September 2012 (EDT)

Article Remove Request[edit] Could this Article be removed please? A "MyFur" page has been linked to it. In order to stop further confusion, could this article be removed, as this it is no longer of use to me anyway? The information on "MyFur" is incorrect also. Thank you in advance.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Akino (talkcontribs) .

Done.--Higgs Raccoon 16:31, 21 September 2012 (EDT)

Motivations behind all the Stubs on AU furries.[edit]

Hiya Higgs Raccoon, a few of the local furries I know have recently discovered the Stub pages on them that you created, which has caused a small discussion on twitter to occur.

I'm kinda curious at why you do this, and where you initially gather the names of the furries that have made articles about.

I personally don't mind the page you created on me, but some are of the opinion that it perhaps would be nice if you asked peeps first for permission to post such things (even if they may be easily googled and such).

Anyway, I'm sorry if this isn't the most appropriate forum to ask you this, but it seems to be the most logical, since you're the initial creator of all of these stubs! Thanks --KaiAdin 07:10, 24 September 2012 (EDT)

Let's see... Why do I create stub articles? A variety of reasons, I guess. Being a scientist, recording and cataloguing things goes with the territory. Also, I think the fandom as a whole is worth recording. And not just all the well-known artists, fursuiters, convention organisers, etc. I think more everyday furries should be included, too, so that WikiFur records a more complete cross-section of the fandom. As to why I create stubs on the AU furries, that's because I'm an Ozfurry myself (though I don't get to be there that often anymore.)
As to where I gather the names... all sorts of places. LiveJournal, Fur Affinity (with its ready-made list of Ozfurs), Twitter (yes, WikiFur knows when you're talking about us), the Fursuit Database, WikiFur itself (lots of red links to google)... pretty much anywhere furries gather online.
Because the information included in articles is gleaned from public profiles that appear in the simplest google searchs (I, for one, don't bother digging for information), WikiFur doesn't have any policy regarding asking permission first. Feel free to open a discussion about it on the Policies and Guidelines page, if you like. Of course, anyone who has an article here and wants its removed is welcome to request personal exclusion.--Higgs Raccoon 17:27, 24 September 2012 (EDT)
Hehe, Yea I figured you'd find the mentions on twitter. As I said I'm not personally opposed to it, I was just curious myself as to why! Thanks again for clearing that up :3 -- KaiAdin 21:03, 24 September 2012 (EDT)


Thank you for cleaning up the ToonPimp page. I hadn't been cognizant of all the steps needed in order to retain the edit history, and I probably would have gotten it wrong if I'd tried to do it myself. APDamien 16:47, 28 September 2012 (EDT)

Hetsu Procyon[edit]

er hello, I wanted to know why my article is back- I've requested it to be deleted several times, and each time it's been taken down for a short period of time, only to reappear again. I want it gone because it violates my privacy, I don't understand why it keeps getting put back there. Thanks.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

Sorry about that. There was nothing that linked your new name to your old one, so I created a new article without realising you'd already been catalogued previously. The Hetsu Procyon article has now been deleted and replaced with a redirect to the earlier article (which is still excluded, as per your wishes).--Higgs Raccoon 15:09, 30 September 2012 (EDT)

Article Removal Request[edit]—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

I would like this removed entirely. I attempted to edit out my information and it keeps being replaced.

If you are Maldavius Figtree and would like to request personal exclusion, it would help if you could leave a note in your Fur Affinity profile saying "Delete me" (or similar). This would be taken as proof that you are the person the article is about, and the article will then be deleted and locked against further edits.--Higgs Raccoon 17:40, 12 November 2012 (EST)

Cats on user pages[edit]

I respectfully disagree! Cats are absolutely suitable for user pages. ;-) --GreenReaper(talk) 21:22, 13 November 2012 (EST)

Article Removal[edit] I wish to have this article removed due to harassment issues from an anonymous user to prevent further issues. Thank you. --xJayne 07:27, 13 December 2012 EDT)

Hello, xJayne. Are you sure you want the article about you removed? Vandalism can always be reverted, and you can always put the article on your Watch list so you will be alerted every time an edit is made to it. If you're sure, though, then there won't be a problem in removing and locking the article.--Higgs Raccoon 00:48, 13 December 2012 (EST)


I would like to have the article on me removed due to privacy and security reasons. Please and thank you.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Syrik (talkcontribs) .

Done. If you should ever change your mind, you can ask any curator to unlock the article again.--Higgs Raccoon 06:08, 20 December 2012 (EST)

Article Removal[edit] I started doing all sharply, and it was my mistake adolescence. Could you delete this? -- SDraw 29 December 0:55 (GMT +4)

Done. The article has now been deleted and locked. If you change your mind in future, you can ask any curator to unlock the article.--Higgs Raccoon 16:05, 28 December 2012 (EST)


Oops - apologies :) Bezel 13:39, 18 January 2013 (EST)

Deletion of WikiFur Page[edit]

Heya, thanks for helping me setup a WikiFur page for myself early September. I've now decided against having one, is there any way I can get it removed? Would be useful for some help on this one, I can't seem to find out where to remove it. Thanks Toasted 16:52, 22 January 2013 (EST)

FurFright dates[edit]

I put the FurFright dates back that you had removed. You can see them here and they appear in advertisements in many furry convention books including FurFright 2012, FC 2013, and I believe MFF 2012. I have a PDF of the ad as well which I would be happy to share. I'd appreciate it if you would ask first or let me know that you were reverting my change instead of doing so without telling me. Thanks. skippyfox 12:53, 28 January 2013 (EST)

what's up with adding stuff I don't want here?[edit]

I'm trying to get my stuff removed from here and you put it back. This is really frustrating. Go check my journal on DA... That should do it. Thanks—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wyoon (talkcontribs) .

Very good - that confirms your identity and the article Wyoon has now been deleted and locked against further edits. If you change your mind in future, you can make a request to any curator to have the article unlocked.--Higgs Raccoon 20:48, 21 February 2013 (EST)

Request to remove my article[edit]

Hello, I would like to remove my article Akeno Kerayni. I no longer want the page up. If you need further conformation you can message me at the sites provided on the pages.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

Hello If you are Akeno Kerayni and would like the article about you excluded, could you leave a message to that effect on your Twitter? That will be taken as proof of identity, and the article will then be deleted and locked.--Higgs Raccoon 04:21, 28 February 2013 (EST)

Hi, sorry for the late rely. I just left a tweet on my twitter profile about it. Twitter

OK, that's fine. The article Akeno Kerayni has now been deleted and locked. If you ever change your mind in future, you can ask any curator to unlock the article again.--Higgs Raccoon 10:29, 6 March 2013 (EST)

User Article[edit]

Hi Higgs, What sort of data should go into my article, wasn't aware I'd had one created until just now Jester Spearmann

That's largely up to you! There are plenty of articles about other furries here, on which you might drawn inspiration. Other people sometimes add brief descriptions of their fursonas, or describe how they first found the furry fandom. You might also add a brief list of interests outside furry.--Higgs Raccoon 08:51, 15 March 2013 (EDT)
Thank you, I'll look around a bit and pick up some ideas. Jester Spearmann 08:53, 15 March 2013 (EDT)


I'm only reverting my page back to how I put it so I can use Spirou's changes as a baseline for the next version, as some things he's added are those that are dead/inactive like my DeviartArt page. At least give me a proper chance to redo it all without it being changed again. ~Sparky15756

There is a difference between making changes to an article and doing a complete revert on it every time someone else changes it. Spirou's changes were made to make the article Sparky15756 conform to WikiFur's standard article format, so that is what you should be using as a baseline.--Higgs Raccoon 16:20, 31 March 2013 (EDT)

Unreferenced person-stubs[edit]

There seem to be quite a number of unreferenced person-stubs listed at User:Rat/PersonStubsNeedTagging. -- Sine 20:39, 7 April 2013 (EDT)


Thankyou for making a WIkifur page about me:) and for fixing my page after I broke it:D I tried to fix it but couldn't work out what I had done! Thankyou



Thanks for creating a page about 9-Lives, I added extra information about it after noticing a few incoming links from it. Not sure if this is how I edit things correctly, But I guess i'll do it anyway :D ~Zumi

You're welcome, Zumi. Don't worry too much about formatting - you'll most likely pick up the preferred style from other articles, or, if not, other editors will adjust things as required. Might I suggest a list of characters from the comic?
Oh, and BTW, thanks for creating the articles Zumigal and Kia-tk.--Higgs Raccoon 16:03, 1 May 2013 (EDT)
Np :) I figured having dead links was wasteful so I created them with basic information :) We are going live with a major site update monday, It may not be an update to fit the theme of this wiki (Furry) but we will be going live with Either world, which atm is just on her DA account. I also had some spare time yesterday having fell down a hole and injured my ankle (Which is fine now). Why not check it out anyway on monday :D ~Zumi 00:02, 2 May 2013 (GMT)


Thanks for the help with adding the danish article Cool, nice and naughty furries to the Timeline of media coverage :)

Not to get you involved,...[edit]

But thanks for the assist - Spirou 11:27, 19 May 2013 (EDT)


Hey, thanks again for helping me get started, I'll begin my editing and revising asap, thanks again.

KentFurs: Help Please[edit]

Can you offer some suggestion on how I can improve this article please? Someone created the article without asking the KentFurs community and I been trying to improve it, though this is the first wiki article I have ever worked on, so doing the best I can with no experience.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Thayne (talkcontribs) .

You may wish to put this question to User:Spirou, who added the cleanup tags. But, glancing at it, the first thing that needs correction is all the unnecessary bolding and italicising of various words and phrases, from the "Locations" section to the end of the article. PS You can sign your words on Talk Pages like this one by putting the code "--~~~~" at the end.--Higgs Raccoon 15:05, 14 June 2013 (EDT)

Amy Ninetails[edit]

Thank you for creating a page about me and motivating me to merge it with my user page <3—The preceding unsigned comment was added by DJ Tiger (talkcontribs) .

No problems. Thanks for fleshing out the Amy Ninetails article.--Higgs Raccoon 17:32, 21 June 2013 (EDT)


Hmm, actually I did. I made double sure since you also locked down the last PE article I made, thinking too I had done so. I wonder why it is not sticking when I press save. But Thanks anyways - Spirou 21:06, 5 July 2013 (EDT)

Well, if you locked down (protected) the Haruki Talos article, it didn't show up in the protection log.--Higgs Raccoon 22:12, 5 July 2013 (EDT)

... Mind deleting mine and recreating it?[edit]

Hey i dont mind at all that i have a wikifur (Siberia Copper) - but i really dislike that my school is forever associated with it. Dont mind if people know where i live and such, but i dont want my school associated with the account. If you need proof its me, see my FA journal: or see that i revised my FA "Full Name" to get rid of the "tiberious" —The preceding unsigned comment was added by SibeCopper (talkcontribs) .

I have hidden the revisions which mention your school from public view. --GreenReaper(talk) 22:04, 16 July 2013 (EDT)

Please remove all references to home town[edit]

Please hide revisions that mention my home town on

As you wish. --GreenReaper(talk) 22:21, 16 July 2013 (EDT)

Please remove PrincessWilly29[edit]

I'm no longer associated with the furry fandom and would like my page taken down, along with revision history. Thank you.

Khord Kitty[edit]

Oh, I see. we're writing FICTIONAL articles on people, that are only positive and give praises for them, even (especially?) when they behave badly or harass others. got it. Better go modify Sibe's article to describe him as better than Jesus and Buddah, and say that Andy Panda is an okay guy, despite all the horrible things he's done. Is Mr. Hands now a martyr for the fandom? Better add that to his page!

if this is what wikifur's devolved into, then i'm running for the hills!

I don't care if you block me... even if you were an admin, by banning me, you'd just prove me right. maybe you like it when others harass you, but the majority of us don't! the majority of people also understand that there are things called "consequenses for your actions"... and if you're stupid enough to do drive-by trolling followed by blocking, you're GOING to get people pissed off and looking for you and returning the favour if you`re stupid enough to advertise your online locations.

i don't know how they do things over there in Merry Olde England, but here, if you start trouble, you better stick around to finish it... those that don't tend to be on the receiving end of shit like this.

Just because you are a WikiFur Patron does not make you high-and-mighty or better than anyone else. so... get off your high horse, and learn that you are NOT better than anyone else!

now, i'll have to revert your vanadalism...

RingtailedFox 13:55, 25 July 2013 (EDT)

Tarakan Alopex[edit]

Thanks a lot for your help with that Template, and tidying up the articles for me:). Very new to the wiki editing world. Tarr 04:02, 18 August 2013 (EDT)

No problem. Thanks for your additions to the RivFur articles and ActFur on Air. Don't worry if wiki editing is unfamiliar to you - you'll soon get the hang of it, and you've already demonstrated that you know how to expand articles.--Higgs Raccoon 08:17, 19 August 2013 (EDT)
