Hi there, Siridean, and welcome to WikiFur! Thanks for telling us a bit about yourself - however, I'm a little concerned about the Dizzywhig article. It seems to me that you're being needlessly mysterious; as the inventor of the species, you are surely in the position to make clearer statements.

If it is a species used only by you, it is probably not suitable for a separate article, and should instead be described on the page about you. WikiFur is not for the coining of new names. :-)

Let me know if you need any help not already provided! --GreenReaper(talk) 02:23, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Hey GreenReaper. Thanks for steering me in the right direction. Using this wiki thing is still new to me.


No problem. Glad to have you here! (BTW: You can do signatures on talk pages with ~~~~, or ~~~ to get it without the date). 18:44, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Personal exclusion vs Blanking[edit]

Hi Siridean, you have recently blanked or removed lots of information from the article Siridean‎, which was reverted by another editor. If you are Siridean‎ and wish to be excluded from WikiFur, you can request personal exclusion. Note that to remove incorrect or private info, you don't need to request personal exclusion; see alternatives.

Blanking vs editing[edit]

Question: Is there a reason I can't remove inaccurate info from my own page? Or any information, for that matter? --Siridean 06:56, 12 January 2012 (EST)

Hi; Yes, you can almost edit everything you wish from it (with exceptions; see Sibe), but you cannot blank a page, which will result on an automatic rollback (Wikifur rules), or lay an article so bare it doesn't read as an article anymore (no references, no links, etc,...).
In this situation, you can minimize the amount of information on the article so it stands enough as one, or you can request for Personal Exclusion (closing the article). PE can be permanent or temporary until such time you can recreate the article in full form the way you wish it to be. Hope this information helps - Spirou 17:46, 12 January 2012 (EST)
