LJ list: move hobbies to interests?[edit]

Since you recently edited List of furry LiveJournal communities I'm hoping you'll comment on my "move Hobbies to Interests?" suggestion --EarthFurst 04:53, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for my article[edit]

Thanks for making an article on me on WikiFur. ISD 22:00, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

You're very welcome! Thanks for providing the information. -- Sine 21:01, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

I'm confused...[edit]

I'm not clear on why you disagreed with my edits on Ashley Revell. The links to internal articles seem preferable than just website names, providing a reader a better explanation of the sites in question. Also, I'm at a loss on the "Retrieved" dates - are those the dates that you looked up those links? Are the links any less valid today than they were on those dates? I'm not sure what is meant by that and why it is necessary. ----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 16:03, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Those are the dates the links were looked at, yes, and as for why: things disappear, move, and are altered. A proper citation of an electronic document includes the date that document was accessed.
As I mentioned over on Talk:Endless Round MUCK, the reference format I came up with is an in-house format. APA, Chicago, and MLA get rather complicated and cryptic, and readibility is important. I didn't feel there was a need to repeat the actual URL of items, as we can provide a link as part of the citation; however, all necessary information should be in the citation if available from the source. For an online item, that's author, title, date updated, URL, and date retrieved.
-- Sine 17:10, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
That would be fine, except that the format you have chosen is different in usage from almost every article on WikiFur. I did a bit of research and I now see the style to which you refer in Wikipedia. If you wish to adopt such a format (and more importantly, expect others to follow it and not revert your edits, as I did), I would recommend that you write up a proposed policy for it, solicit comments, etc. etc.
In the case of this particular article, the links in question are not actually references (in the WikiFur sense of the term) since they are not actual citations of facts stated in the text of the article. They would probably fit better under the heading of External Links. I'll hold off on making any edits until we come to some agreement, though. ----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 17:42, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Bunny boy[edit]

We both seem to have noticed the need to improve the disambiguation at about the same time. If you see any problems with my changes, go ahead and improve on me. --Rat 07:32, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Recent Vandlism[edit]

Sine, thanks for helping out :) I've moved the pages back that were moved and we're getting circular redirects when you revert after I've already reverted XD... Sorry about that. -- JaeSharp 04:56, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Sorry about that! I think my connection may be blipping or something because I was checking recent changes, just apparently not correctly! Can you fix the redirect on Lemming, or should I recreate it? (It was a disambig of just a couple lines, created earlier today ironically...) -- Sine 05:00, 26 August 2006 (UTC)
No problem :)... already fixed, restored the deleted edit and reverted to the earlier version :) -- JaeSharp 05:02, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Recent Changes[edit]

Thanks for the small change! Hope I can come to you for help when it`s time for me to actually make a full article. ^^ Streakthetiger 16:25, 6 September 2006

You're very welcome! Feel free to ask for any help or advice, although I think we've got most stuff covered in The Furry Book of Style, so that's a good place to start. -- Sine 18:20, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

I don't understand?[edit]

What do you mean by that my article needs to be cleaned up? I though it looks clean enough? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by TerrisRacoon (talkcontribs) .

Hmm, that's a good question. I just looked at TerrisRacoon, and it looks pretty good to me. Sine? :-) --Douglas Muth 17:56, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

As you can read in it I'm from Poland and my grammar nor orthography are not perfect, so if you can please be so kind, can you clean up the page the way YOU would like to see it, because as for me it looks nice and clean. TerrisRacoon


I can understand needing more reference for some of the details in the Cerebus article, but do we need to be that academic beyond citing Wikipedia for the aardvark entry? If so, a lot of the other species entries (e.g. hyena, etc.) are going to need that template. --Frizzy 05:16, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

Critieria for comic definition?[edit]

Just curious again, I just noticed the entry for A Very MU Christmas had the category and stub tag related to comics removed. Is there a specific criteria we need to use for the definition of a comic or comic book? --Frizzy 05:42, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

BTW, thanks for the grammatical and other cleanup. :) --Frizzy 05:44, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
My assumption is that comic would refer to individual comic-format stories, so an anthology of comics should just be categorized as an anthology rather than in Category:Comics. Maybe we need a Category:Comic anthologies? What do you think? Feel free to move this discussion over to the Forum for wider input. -- Sine 06:43, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
I think that's a great idea, thanks! =^_^= --Frizzy 07:51, 19 September 2006 (UTC)
