Thanks for going over my edits to Encyclopedia Dramatica and leaving feedback in the summary for me. Patience and help are always appreciated when I'm on a new encyclopedia with a different atmosphere than my home wiki. Are you a fan/user of ED as well?  Vermin  Brian Vermin icon.jpg 09:39, 3 November 2014 (EST)

No indeed, I merely enjoy making writing tighter. When RecentChanges shows edits to a page that is more than someone's personal diary, I look in. Thanks for agreeing that my assertion, that the tone of three ED articles was not acerbic but self-deprecating, did not require a fetish confession as a proof! However, after I made that change, I looked at your Aquaphilia article; except possibly for one or two photos, it has no relation to furries at all except a link that the reader might bring to the reading. So I toyed with removing that too, but you can decide. Cheers! SPIKE (talk) 11:10, 3 November 2014 (EST)
Right, I wrote the article about aquaphilia from a general standpoint which could be applied to any fandom/subculture that took interest in it. Here, I was providing additional examples of furries/furry fans writing satirical articles about fetishes found in furry artwork to clarify the "fun spin" mentioned in the article where further clarification was requested by the template.  Vermin  Brian Vermin icon.jpg 12:08, 3 November 2014 (EST)
You say there is an intersection between furry and aquaphilia, but your ED article doesn't claim one. The result is like saying, "Wikipedia includes an article on jaywalkers, and some furries may be jaywalkers." What is missing is the obvious reason to cite that second article of yours in the first place. (Clearly you had a reason, but the Wikifur reader won't see it.) But perhaps that is what the person is saying who added {{Cn}}. SPIKE (talk) 12:29, 3 November 2014 (EST)
Yeah, I understand ya. I went ahead and updated the article with a photographic example of aquaphilia in the furry fandom and added its inclusion in the article's intro. Thanks for pointing that out to me!  Vermin  Brian Vermin icon.jpg 13:47, 3 November 2014 (EST)
