Hi there, I just noticed the new template you are making Template:Proposed deletion because, I was wondering what articles you personally thought might need such a template? I'm just asking as I currently monitor current templates in use on the wiki and keep them catalogged WikiFur:Boiler Plate Text, and I previously didn't make a 'Votes for deletion' template as I've been told we are currently trying to be as inclusive as possible in the wiki. Asking users to improve rather than remove articles that seem lacking. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks. -Nidonocu - talk Nidonocu 20:48, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I just copy-pasted the template from the main wikicities one as it didn't seem to exist. I used it on the tengu page as people keep overwriting my personal Internet biography with the text from wikipedia, but said creatures are not exactly well known in this fandom the way kitsune are, so I think repeating the wikipedia text is redundant and unneeded. -Tengu 20:56, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
There's a more simple solution than that. :) Turn Tengu in to a disambiguation page. Make a new page right now and call it Tengu (Person). Put the content that you want in that and then give me a message here or on my Talk Page. I'll sort it out so both these pages can exist. -Nidonocu - talk Nidonocu 21:08, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Okay I THINK I did it right. Hope you can fix it if I didn't. (Wikis are hard) -Tengu 02:04, 27 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I've made a few corrections which you can take a look at. Not a bad attempt though. ^_^ Feel free to take a look and see how it all works. -Nidonocu - talk Nidonocu 02:27, 27 Aug 2005 (UTC)

My apologies for making the initial deletion. For obvious reasons we've gotten a bit over-sensitive about trolling, and your initial page didn't make it clear that it was referring to a specific individual. Also, I was way too quick on thye trigger deleting the uglybirds image - I should have marked it for deletion, not deleted it out of hand. This occurred to me right after I deleted it, of course. --Duncan da Husky 14:29, 27 Aug 2005 (UTC)

'Sokay. I was just goofing around anyway. --Tengu 21:42, 27 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Addition of Turaco et. al.[edit]

Hi there! I noticed you added Turaco, Caecilian, Tikbalang and Selkie (species) - was there any reason for doing so? They don't seem to be linked to anything, or to contain any specific furry content, and in thsoe cases we try to link to Wikipedia (with [[Wikipedia:Article name|text to show]] rather than copy, mostly because they can keep the pages more up-to-date than we can. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 04:18, 25 Sep 2005 (UTC)
