My list of things to do (Do Not Edit)Edit

  • Bring Predalien (species) page up to a good status.
  • Make adoption request on community central to have admin and bureaucrat status on May 21st.
  • Plain old editing.

WelcomeEdit

Hi, welcome to Xenopedia! Thanks for your edit to the Talk:Scar page.

If you need help, and there are no local admins here, you may want to visit the forums on the Community Central Wiki. Looking for live help? Then join us for an upcoming webinar to chat with staff and other Wikia editors. You can also check our Staff blog to keep up-to-date with the latest news and events around Wikia.

Happy editing, Soldierscuzzy@Wikia (help forum | blog)

The Xenomorph pageEdit

Hey can the admins reunlock the xenomorph page, because it really looks stupid with all the red hyper links and missing photos, or can they change it back, can you tell the admins if you know them.Ultimatex (talk) (Contribs) 16:24, February 11, 2012 (UTC)

AlrightEdit

The fanon has been deleted, I'm working on the other stuff and I've unlocked the Xenomorph page. Anything else I need to unlock?

--Nightmare76 (talk) (Contribs) 09:10, March 3, 2012 (UTC)

The Predalien (Earth) page has been unlocked. Help me keep an eye on it though. I remember why that one was locked. There was a lot of arguing involved. If the other admins don't return soon, I'll talk to the Wikia staff and see if they can appoint me as a bureaucrat so I can appoint a secondary admin or at least have them appoint another admin to help out.

RE:Admin Edit

Hi Ahaga10! Please make an adoption request to receive admins rights on this wiki. Thanks! Mark@Wikia (talk) 14:12, March 14, 2012 (UTC)

Broken templates Edit

Hi,

Just looking at the messed up table on the Predators (film) article and the Template:App template, where there are repeated "This user has been warned. The reason given was..." bits.

I think it is because of these two edits.

http://avp.wikia.com/index.php?title=Template:Warning&diff=45004&oldid=12716

http://avp.wikia.com/index.php?title=Template:Warning&diff=next&oldid=45004

Could you restore the old Template:! template please?

I'm on wikipedia as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:AlistairMcMillan if you need to contact me. 93.97.132.209 01:38, March 19, 2012 (UTC)

I saw the changes you made to the Predators article, that doesn't fix all the other articles that use the ! template. You just need to recreate this template: http://avp.wikia.com/index.php?title=Template:!&redirect=no. With this content: |<noinclude>[[Category:Templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]</noinclude>.
Give us a shout if you have any questions. Alistair McMillan Can't Remember His Old Password (talk) (Contribs) 19:26, March 19, 2012 (UTC)
What happens when you try to edit this page: http://avp.wikia.com/index.php?title=Template:!&redirect=no ? If it doesn't let you edit it because of permissions, do you know how to contact someone who does have higher permissions? Alistair McMillan Can't Remember His Old Password (talk) (Contribs) 20:58, March 23, 2012 (UTC)

Your ProfileEdit

I stopped by Nightmare's talk page for an unrelated reason, and happened to see your request to lock your profile. I've gone ahead & done this for you, so it is now protected against new & unregistered users.

siggy3.png@Wikia (profile)•(talk)•(email) 00:52, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

NPEdit

No problem, I've had it happen to mine in the past as well. It is not advised to lock article pages, or the main page on wikis, but a user's profile page is a different matter.

FanonEdit

I fixed your talk page for you. It had that you put the warning there in the history. You may have accidentally hit the button to insert it. It has happened to me before, but at any rate it's fixed.

With the Fanon, I've always personally liked the idea, but the other admins always told everyone to post their fanon on the Alien Fanon Wiki, but that wiki is all but dead. I was the admin there for a long time, but myself and the other admins kinda gave up on it because we had a hard time sorting everything out (it was anything extraterrestrial fanon such as Halo, AVP, etc, hard to keep up with everything lol). There are also fanon blogs category, but since I am the only active admin I'll put it into consideration. Make a blog entry and see what others think. If it gets enough good reception I think we'll go through with it because I personally see no harm in it. I mean the SC wiki allows fanon and canon, so why not Xenopedia? I don't think this would be a place to post full-fledged fanfics though, more like character pages, etc kinda like how the SoulCalibur wiki does. Anyway hopefully it gets enough good reception because I like the idea, but I don't want to do it without finding out how the other contributors feel about it. If it does work out, we'll need to set up a "Rules of Fanon" page like the SoulCalibur wiki has.

--Nightmare76 (talk) (Contribs) 21:07, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, thank you, by the way, for the compliment on my new page. I would add some pictures of the Marines, but the pictures on the website where I found the Aliens' and (most of the) Predators' pictures they were not HQ like the others I used. The same thing happened with Dark (Predator) and Claw (also a Predator). I have been searching for HQ pictures for at least some marines all this afternoon, but I haven't been successful. But, I can mention it on the talk section of the page and maybe other users have better access to pictures of Marines than I do. But, I'm sure I can find at least one!

adoption Edit

Hi. Thanks for trying to start a community discussion. I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights. Good luck with the wiki! -- Wendy (talk)@Wikia 03:59, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

The Request Edit

Thanks for offer, but should i ask you for the these rights or another admin.Ultimatex (talk) (Contribs) 11:02, June 12, 2012 (UTC)

  • Thank you very much for giving me these rights. Ultimatex (talk) (Contribs) 08:33, June 13, 2012 (UTC)
    • Yes i would also like to get bureaucrat rights, because we need more people to stop vandalism and plagiarism of the articles, but we need to choose the right people, not just randomly.Ultimatex (talk) (Contribs) 15:30, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

New Wiki Background? Edit

I have heard some userd saying that we need a new background to represent us.....something oher than just plain grey.

Since the wiki is being rennovated (unnecisary pages being deleted, chat, esc.), may I add a new bg? something that actually represents us.

Thanks!

btw, thanks for the Admin rights :)

Bman14 (talk) (Contribs) 13:21, June 13, 2012 (UTC)

Updating a page. Edit

With your permission, I would like to update the wiki rule/policy page as it needs updating and one "rule" is actually quite counter-effective to the wiki. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 17:31, June 14, 2012 (UTC)

Potential new help? Edit

Hey there

There is a user by the name of Halo4master who has noticed our lack of admins and says he's interested in helping us out. He's great at coding (so he can make us some more templates), and he says that he can clean/improve pages with bad grammar and sutch. I've seen his work on various other wikis. Maybe he too can become Admin after he's been editing for a while? He's able to get on often and contribute. I've already sent him the requirements for admin.

I know i'm an admin myself, but i just thought I should ask first.

Thanks!

Bman14 (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 20:25, June 14, 2012 (UTC)

Halo4masterEdit

Okay i will watch him and check his contributions.Ultimatex (talk) (Contribs) 10:49, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

New Wiki Project? Edit

Hey.

Now that our original "big project" seems to be just about done (like getting more admins and deleting unnecisary pages), that is this wiki's next "big project"?

Bman14 (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 14:13, July 4, 2012 (UTC)


I think we still need some more admins, There was two spaces for crat rights and five for admins and while there are currently four admins, two of them got crat rights so they count as a bureaucrat rather than just admin so that leaves three spaces open for potential admins and we do need more, since depending of the circumstances not all of us can be on at certain times to monitor the wiki and more admins means a more secure and orderly wiki. But yes the pages have been deleted so that is one problem out of the way, we can still start another project even if we are still looking for new admins, I recommend a thorough scan of the wiki articules to root out fanon, speculation and other unconfirmed info because this wiki is full of it The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 21:08, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. Nightmarizard [Chat] 09:00, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

There are a lot of fanon pages that need to be removed but out of respect to the author, I recommend we copy and paste it to their profile, so it still exists for them. After that we can deal with the speculation and unconfirmed info. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 23:42, July 9, 2012 (UTC)


I'm not really familliar with fanon. How, exactly, can we tell what the "fanon" and speculation is so we can delete it? Bman14 (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 14:16, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Well Fanon is fanfiction and so is clearly false info, they are easily spotted but if you are unsure if something is fanon or not, ask me or another fellow admin, specualtion is people taking it upon themselves to try and connect dots or theorize things. you can find some obvious fanfiction by typing in fanon, as there pages that start with Fanon: The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 23:20, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Ah, I see now. I'll definately keep an eye out for it. Thanks! Bman14 (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 12:13, July 11, 2012 (UTC)


No problem my friend, just type in Fanon and you will see a lot of it, but dont delete the fanon page yet, first copy it and then paste it onto the author's page, then delete the fanon page. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 12:19, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

BanEdit

Please ban the user address 217.209.82.165 ASAP, because he's been vandalising and posting spam on the wiki after being warned against it. TroopDude (talk) (Contribs) 20:42, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Warned member. Edit

Just to give you a heads up, I gave an official warning to member TI154th for repeatedly accusing someone of trolling and despite being told not to do so again, he recently called a member a troll. (what he should have done is come to admin first and not accuse someone of trolling or being a troll, that counts as a personal attack) He also accused someone of threatening him when they were just making a comment about some fans being aggressive. He attemped to get me to deal with a member by threatening me. The latter is on my talk pages while the troll insult and accusation of threat was on a blog.

I will leave it to you to decide if the warning was justified or not. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 23:42, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

Compromised Edit

Their is a highly offensive blog on this website that should have been shut down from the moment it was created.

[[1]]

It is full of sarcastic insults, the creator of this blog is Daniel Large and has gotten away with these comments without incident. Now you may not have noticed what I am talking about, The Cruentus hasn't, but these are the insults I am talking about that no one has done anything about.

Quote

1. AVP fanboy: "The plot with Prometheus is like the first AVP movie where a bunch of explorers find a pyramid or ancient civilsation to explore which is like AVP which proves AVP must be canon."

Wrong AVP plot was about human civilsation where predators told them to build pyramids and make humans treat predators as gods which the movie shows ancient civilsations show

unquote


And this is how all the points start. AVP fanboy:, AVP fanboy:, AVP fanboy:, AVP fanboy:, AVP fanboy:

This point made by Daniel Large has a sarcastic frown face in it, so as to rub it in that he thinks he decanoized the movies.

quote

"4. AVP fanboy: "Prometheus took some bits out of the comic Aliens Destroying Angels which means the comics are canon."

Actually no it dosen't they took peices of the comic but not the whole comic they took peices in because they like the designs and wanted into their movie. They didn't take the whole story or the characters in the comic why? because the movie Prometheus tells what really happened making the comic non-canon but using some of these elements into the movie.

Example: Star Wars: Old Wounds Darth Maul survived the attacked (well he still lost his legs but still alive) by Obi wan and since then darth maul has robotic legs like general greivous. But it states that darth maul has been searching or hunting him down since the clone wars and he finally founds him years after the end of clone wars.

http://wn.com/sv_Star_Wars_Expanded_Universe

But in the TV series Star Wars The Clone Wars it states that darth maul has been hiding on a garbage planet with spider legs and since then he gone insane or crazy and then he get his new legs and starts fighting obi wan.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sD1KdIabzJU

The TV show is canon between the events 2 and 3 and also george lucas is the producer of the show and declares whats canon. :("

unquote


If I had the software to be a mod I would have locked it after seeing his quote unquote points. People that do not like the avp movies and fans of the movies get away with this kind of bull and worse all over the net. I will not stand for it. I had to watch this place by myself for the longest time guarding it from Daniel large and people worse than him and I have no tolerance for insults or canon breaking.

From my brief observations I would have to say that the mod watching the blog is not indifferent towards editors. He has allowed this Daniel large to get away with insults made at the AvP fan base and I think it has to do with the fact they dislike the AvP movies. I had a talk with other people and they find if offensive as well what Danile large wrote in his blog. "AVP fanboy:, AVP fanboy:, AVP fanboy:, AVP fanboy:, AVP fanboy:." Being a "Fan Boy" is looked at as a negative thing.

At the very lest make him take that crap out. --WAVE (talk) (Contribs) 20:01, July 10, 2012 (UTC


First off, there is no bias, I would warn and block him just as much as I would warn and block you, He has not made any direct insults to members here...unlike you. Fanboy is not really a likable word to some but it is actually a word to describe hardcore fans and you have said the same thing too because if I recall, you said "Prometheus fanboys". Now just because you don't agree with Daniel and what he says, that does not mean he is insulting people, being wrong in his opinions also does not mean he is insulting people.

Blogs are for people to voice their opinions or talk about a subject, and it is allowed. They should not be shut down just because the author dislikes avp or because you don't like it, this wiki does not cater to your personal desires. Now i'm going remind you one more time, If you do not like it, do not go there. simple. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 20:55, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Yes he has insulted people with his sarcasm. I said Prometheus fanboys as an insult to him and anyone else insulting fans of avp which now tends to be Prometheus fans. --WAVE (talk) (Contribs) 21:02, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

So you said it intentional as insult? not a smart move, it seems you have a problem with Daniel and his opinions and you are taking it personal. Not everyone is insulted just because someone else does not share their views or like avp, you need to learn that not everyone in the world is the same and they don't share the same thoughts, now to give you another lesson, do not insult someone back if they did insult you or if you believe they insulted you, fighting fire with fire does not work and you only adding gas to the flames. Best course of action? walk away and/or report it. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 21:12, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

  • No I have a problem with people insulting people just because they like something. And just so you know I have reported him to mod that should be indifferent. You are not indifferent, or at the very least you can't tell when someone is making an insult, you have said nothing to Daniel large about his sarcastic insults, nor did you even notice I was insulting him by calling him a Prometheus fan boy.
  • I also shouldn't have to report him since you can clearly see his insults. Here is your lessons, those that walk away from a fight have no spine and are easily controlled.

--WAVE (talk) (Contribs) 22:09, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Sarcasm is not really grounds for warning or blocking (it depends on how it is used) and from what I read of the blog, he is simply making mock scenarios between two different fans and posting what he believes, you seem to have a problem with that and it is not the way to go here, we all have our opinions and blogs are used to express them, just because you don't like the fact that he dislikes avp or views it as non-canon does not mean he is insulting people and does not give you the right to call him a troll, I am indifferent, I am not taking either side in this blog madness but you insulted him....and again as you admitted to your wording of "prometheus fanboy" was used as an intentional insult rather than a way to describe a passionate hardcore fan. Sorry pal but walking away is the smart and civil solution and not the actions of a spineless coward. When in forums and blogs, you should always walk away rather than continue and cause drama and flaming if things get heated. Agree to disagree is what sensible people do when their points are getting nowhere or when either side cannot be convinced of something. That is another lesson you should of learned. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 22:33, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

  • Bull. He would update his blog and use what I said except for he would use the name AvPfanboy instead of my name. I would mention a reference from Destroying Angel, his next updated would be "AVP fanboy: "Prometheus took some bits out of the comic Aliens Destroying Angels which means the comics are canon."

The rest of what you said near the bottom is filled with false accusations. Maybe I didn't make it clear. I FOUGHT BACK BECAUSE HE INSULTED FANS, AND ME, OF AVP'Bold text. I didn't say, "'I AM INSULTING DANIELE LARGE BECAUSE HE IS USING INCORRECT INFORMATION." Another lesson you should learn is never to write to me again--WAVE (talk) (Contribs) 02:29, July 11, 2012 (UTC).

If someone insults you then you report it, you do not insult them back and as for his updating his blog, he did say that he was still updating it so either he took what you said or it is coincidence, regardless, you do not have the right to insult members, Now calm down immediatly. Now here is the funny part, you said his blog insults people yet after all this time, it is only now you are reporting it, you think of him as a troll yet you keep responding to him. If you know what trolls are then you should know better than to talk/respond to one. I simply think you are taking it all too personally and you got issues with people voicing their opinions, thing is, at any point you could have walked away and kept things nice and civil but you kept on and started to call people names, now if you carry on being aggressive, uncivil and you accuse someone again with no proof then I will have to deal with you. Now calm down and start behaving yourself in future. If you find yourself disagreeing with someone and it is getting heated, walk away. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 02:48, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

  • You just gave me an ultimatum... People who run from trolls are cowards. Your pesudo psychology that you cyberspace people made up about just ignoring problems like trolls shows me that most people on the net are spineless and if somehow you humans from the age of cyberspace, that are alive now, some how switched places with say General George Washington, you would have backed down to British Empire just because it is an inconvenience to fight an oppressive force not unlike trolls. As for your ultimatum about DEALING WITH ME. I am about to accuse Nightmarizard of something.--WAVE (talk) (Contribs) 04:51, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Calling us folk who obey rules, spineless cowards just because we do not want arguments, drama and flame wars on his wiki is an another insult and again you're assuming daniel is a troll, ever hear of something called wiki rules such as civil behavior? no drama and flame wars? respecting others? well you violated those rules and are contining to do so, there is no cowardice in walking away, in fact it takes a bigger man to walk away than to lower himself to argument. A sensible and rule abiding member would make a report if he thought someone was a troll, they do not and should not attack the other person. A sensible and rule abiding person would agree to disagree in debates that are getting heated rather carry on until it got out of control. I'm going to block you for a while, nightmarizard will decide to if you are allowed back on or not.

You were told to not make more insults or accuse daniel again, yet you just have and your mock accusation at nightmarizard was apparently your attempt to disregard what I said. Whether or not I'm justified in blocking you I will leave to nightmarizard to decide. I really don't know why you have problems with rules. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 11:30, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

I am accusing you Edit

Of really being a Green Lantern fan... You pretend to like Bat Man and the Joker but deep down you really like Hal Jordan.--WAVE (talk) (Contribs) 04:53, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Candidates. Edit

Now if we are still looking for more potential admins, then I have spotted a few members who may have potential, I picked out five, not all might be suitable but I had a quick look at their talk pages and there seems to be no previous issues or warnings but if they need to be fully screened then we need to check the history of their talk and user pages as well and talk to them. If you agree that we should check out these potentials then I shall add the names here later. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 15:51, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

Dear Nightmarized, I am interested in becoming an admin, and have have talked to The Cruentus about it and answered his background questions. I am a relatively active member on the wiki, and I also try to keep spam off Xenopedia and to keep the wiki tidy and updated. TroopDude (talk) (Contribs) 17:10, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

BlockEdit

The user with the IP address 211.30.54.76 has recently been vandalising the Engineer page. I have just warned him, and I recommend that if he does not stop vandalising Xenopedia, he be blocked from the wiki ASAP. TroopDude (talk) (Contribs) 09:10, July 15, 2012 (UTC)


Hey Night, Just to give you a heads up, I recently blocked http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/173.24.245.195 because I believe it is TI154th, People who are blocked are not allowed to get back on through other means until their block time limit is over, otherwise it undermines the block and the admins' authority, Now I increased TI154th's block by another two weeks, Frankly it should be more than that due to him attempting to get back on when his block is still active but I shall leave it to you to judge if it was justified or not, also if you want to double check, click on this http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/173.24.245.195 and check the contributions history to make sure if I was right or not. Also, I'm not sure if you have noticed but troopdude has requested adminship, it is somewhere above this section. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 15:11, July 20, 2012 (UTC)

WAVE is accussing me of spamming and you of being inactiveEdit

Recently the user called WAVE, the one you and Cruentus have banned multiple times, is accusing all of you of being inactive and me of spamming with two accounts. http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:I.P._Address_Scan?t=20120723021831

I think you all should do something about that.Werebereus (talk) (Contribs) 22:40, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

Block 2 Edit

Just to give you a heads up, I had to block TI154th again for contantly arguing and being hostile, not to mention making false claims/accusations again. He thinks we are all corrupt and bad for this wiki. Since this is his forth block, I have blocked him indefinitely, I believe in a three strike rule and he had more chances than most to learn from his behavior. You can read everything on my talk page, Check the history on it as well as I had to delete some of his posts to prevent further arguements as I was attempting to put an end to it which did not work as he then spammed by talk page. I leave to you to see if the block was justified or not.

Three days back and he already starts his antics up again, I don't think he will ever change. He even refuses to provide sources for info he puts onto the wiki, instead he tries to turn it back on us when asked to provide sources. If he wanted his edits to stay, he should have provided a source instead he thinks we are canon breakers, another false accusation.

This wiki has improved a lot due to speculaltion and unconfimed info being deleted not to mention we are trying to source everything. Though we do have a long way to go yet. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 12:05, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

I'm back Edit

My apologies about being inactive. Since my original plans to help the wiki, I have become a chat moderator on a wiki and an administrator on a couple others, and have been very involved and busy. I am going to try my best to contribute here now, and I hope this goes well. Cheers, Halo4master-Signature-CCRENDER Halo4masterCloudchaser 23:03, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Update Edit

Hello friend, I thought I would update you on the past few months since I noticed a bit of activity from you not long ago. 

Pages have been improved, either by grammar, structure or by sources, we got a few good members here helping with that. I would say the wiki is nearly out of the tunnel but like all wikis, the work is never done and there is much more improvement needed yet. 

A new "wiki project" is up and running though I am not sure if anyone will volunteer and help with it. The last one has some good ideas which will be passed on to the 2013 one, if you at all have suggestions and ideas, we can talk about it in the chatroom with Ultimatex, it can help improve the wiki even more.

Not everything has been sunshine though, WAVE was eventually blocked indefinitely due to continuous uncivil behavior, he challenged that block and so BertH came here to tell us to sort it out amongst ourselves and we have indeed as three admins decided that his block stays and that he should move on, though despite that, he had been harrassing the admins on their talk pages on other wikis, we thought we sorted it but if you have noticed, he has done it again with you. Should you wish it, you can inform BertH at wikia central and there is a reference/ticket number as well  if you want to get in contact to resolve this.

I am sorry to hear that you won't be active here anymore or at least edit active. By adopting the wiki and getting four admins, you pretty much saved this wiki as it was adminless and well, a devil's playground. Now pages are getting sourced, restructured and done in a much better way and we have a few new members that have good contributions.  The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 23:07, April 4, 2013 (UTC)
