That would be very cool, thank you. What would I have to do? -- Supermorff 07:10, 21 March 2007 (CDT)

Might as well delete the Atkinson picture from the server as well, I think. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 09:33, 2 July 2007 (CDT)


Honorifics in page names

I see you reverted my moving Dr. Anton Sevarius to Anton Sevarius. I guess you feel that it's preferable to include the honorific in the page name, but I'm slightly confused as to why. Every other page name that includes an honorific uses it only in place of an unknown name (e.g. Mr. Jaffe, Dr. Sato, etc). Furthermore, when a character's full name is known (as is the case for Mr. David Xanatos, Dr. Lydia Duane, etc), no honorific is included. The only other character treated similarly is King Arthur Pendragon, and one might argue that he's an exception if only because of the familiarity of the name "King Arthur". If you're willing, I'll change the page back and I'll even redirect all the links to the appropriate page, but otherwise I'll defer to your superior wisdom and leave it as is. -- Supermorff 13:21, 26 March 2007 (CDT)

I tend to agree that honorifics aren't part of the name. A "Dr. Sevarius" redirecting everyone to "Anton Sevarius" makes sense to me. But not so much having the Dr. as part of his name. Even with Arthur, I'd think you'd want "King Arthur" to route everyone to Arthur Pendragon. And I'd even suggest using "Mr. Jaffe" only to route readers to "Jaffe". Or "Sir Griff" to "Griff". The only exceptions I'd make is if the honorific isn't really an honorific but is in fact part of a character's nom de guerre. For example "Doctor Doom" or "Mr. Fantastic". Now, I can't think of any examples in the Gargoyles Universe. We do have nom de guerres, like Wolf or Fang, etc. But I can't off the top of my head think of a nom de guerre that contains an honorific. JMHO, btw. --Greg Weisman

Yeah, I guess that makes sense. But, I think Arthur should still have his title, usually if you look him up in a book or encyclopedia, he has his title before his name. As usual, I trust your judgement. -- Greg B

Taskforce

Taskforce is one word. Though we'll still use the acronym GTF, cuz humans are inconsistent with the names they love so much, Taskforce is still one word. Gargoyles Taskforce (GTF).

Timeline

Thanks for the clarification of the canon vs. cit training thing. As for the timeline, I really would like to do some more work on it. As it is, it seems kinda disorganized esspecially after 1994. I havn't done much there yet cuz I don't know what kind of format we should go with. Also, I'm think that perhaps we should put the Future Tense dates in a seperate section altogether of the Timeline. They never actually happened and having them where they are adds to the disorganization, IMHO. Let me know what you think. - Matt

Timeline

Well, that is starting to look a lot better. Sure you don't want to keep the Future Tense dates in a seperate section of the timeline?

Great work you and Matt have done on the Timeline. Do you think it might be worth splitting some years (particularly 1994, 1995 and 1996) off into separate articles, linked to from the main Timeline? There's easily enough information to warrant it. -- Supermorff 13:28, 11 April 2007 (CDT)


Gargoyle Beasts

Hi, Greg. I want to talk about this "gargoyle beast" vs. "Gargoyle Beast" issue. While I understand that Greg (the other Greg) does use "Gargoyle Beasts", he doesn't seem to do so consistently. In comments 653, 5514, 8877 and [1] at Ask Greg, he clearly uses the lower case variety. In fact, sometimes, he even uses both "gargoyle beast" and "Gargoyle Beasts" together in the same comment, as in 609 and 92.

At other times, Greg (Weisman) also capitalises "Gargoyles" when referring to the species, as well as the word "Gargates" (but again, inconsistently). On GargWiki, "gargoyles", "gargates" and "gargoyle beasts" are very rarely capitalised, making lower case variations the preference largely by consensus. Even on the Gargoyle Beast page, there is only one instance in which they are called "Gargoyle Beasts" (in the intro paragraph), and otherwise they are "gargoyle beasts".

If you (or Mr. Weisman) insist that capitalised variations are correct, then that's fine (although it will mean that at some point we will need to trawl through every page on the Wiki and correct "gargoyle" to "Gargoyle", "gargoyle beast" to "Gargoyle Beast" and "gargate" to "Gargate"). Since they are not proper nouns in any case, my personal opinion is that they should all be lower case throughout (except when Gargoyles refers to the series instead of the species), and thus I think the page should be at Gargoyle beast. What do you think? -- Supermorff 13:28, 11 April 2007 (CDT)


I say, it's fine as is.

Not to be a pain in the ass or contrary, but I tend to agree with lower case in most instances (despite how inconsistent I know I've been and will probably continue to be). The words "human", "humans", "dog", "chimpanzees", etc. are all properly lower case, I believe, and the words "gargoyle", "gargoyles", "beasts" etc. should be lower case as well. Of course when used as the title of the show, "Gargoyles" should be capitalized, but maybe that's the distinction. (Though I'm quite happy to be overruled, if people disagree.) - gdw


Yeah, gargoyle beast in text. But, Gargoyle Beast as the title of an entry. That's the way I see it. Of course, as always Greg, what ever you think is best. - GXB

I'm not going to change it again, but in my experience Wiki article titles should always be the same as they appear in text. That way, when the title is used in the middle of a sentence, it can be linked without pipe-linking, as follows: "Gargoyles are to gargoyle beasts as humans are to chimpanzees." However, if there's a different preference among GargWiki users, then we should stick to that. -- Supermorff 19:35, 11 April 2007 (CDT)

GXB - I tend to agree with you for aesthetic reasons. That entries would be in Title Casing. But that within the text, something like gargoyle beasts would be in lower case. - gdw

Blacklisted

Greg, yesterday I learned that GargWiki has been blacklisted by Wikimedia. This means that all Wikimedia Projects (in particular Wikipedia) will automatically reject any edit that includes a link to GargWiki or any of its subpages. The reason for this seems to be several acts of vandalism and link spamming that have taken place both on Wikipedia and on Grimorum, which is what you might call a "rival" Gargoyles wiki. Some of these edits seem to be well intentioned, but their execution was disruptive and uncivil. I have already petitioned that the site be removed from the blacklist, and I have been informed that no action will be taken for at least one week, at which point I will make the request again and see.

To improve our chances of being removed from the blacklist at the end of the week, we have to be seen to be taking action against such vandalism and link spamming. At the very least, I suggest we create a Policy page here on GargWiki (for example at GargWiki:Policy) that promotes civility among GargWiki users and that specifically denounces any acts of vandalism, both on GargWiki and elsewhere. The policy would need to explain what vandalism and link spamming are, and why they are bad ideas. If you wish, I can draw up a draft based on Wikipedia policy pages, and we can hold a vote among GargWiki members to establish it as actual policy. If you or another administrator would rather draw up a proposal yourself, that is also acceptable. How would you like to proceed? -- Supermorff 17:10, 12 April 2007 (CDT)


Sounds good to me, do it.

Hopefully, I should have a first draft ready in the next few days. -- Supermorff 09:06, 13 April 2007 (CDT)
That's done now (see GargWiki:Policy). Considering I was basically keying off pre-existing Wikipedia policy pages, it took a surprisingly long time. How should we let people know about the page to comment on it? -- Supermorff 08:23, 16 April 2007 (CDT)
Looks great to me.

Can I ask why there is another gargoyles wiki site? I mean obviously I don't want to vandalize it, but having just went over there it seems like one big stub. Do we know who is running it and why they feel the need to compete with us here? Did they predate us or something? I'm more curious than concerned. It seems like such a waste. If there are people who want to work on a garg wiki, maybe we can channel their energies here...

They didn't predate us. Other than that, I can't say. -- Supermorff 08:23, 16 April 2007 (CDT)

More Gargoyle Beasts

Having mostly settled on Title Casing as preferable for article titles, what do you think about the names of categories? Once again I would prefer changing them to lower casing where appropriate. Proper names (such as Category:Manhattan Clan) would remain as they are but others (such as Category:Gargoyle Beasts or Category:Organized Crime) would be changed. What do you think? -- Supermorff 17:14, 19 April 2007 (CDT)

For aesthetic reasons, capital letters.

It's hard to disagree with such a terse answer. So you apply the same aesthetic to category titles as to article titles? Okay. Aesthetically, I prefer lower case (the "Voice Actors" category in particular looks wrong to me), but I'll let the matter drop if you've decided. -- Supermorff 05:48, 20 April 2007 (CDT)

Still blacklisted

Yes. A new Wikipedia user has taken the opportunity to use Ask Greg as a conduit in an attempt to circumvent the blacklisting. It is making the removal process complicated. -- Supermorff 03:32, 21 April 2007 (CDT)
The new incident can be found here, and the ongoing discussion is here. Not much to do at this point except keep your fingers crossed. -- Supermorff 13:18, 21 April 2007 (CDT)


This is the current situation: we are still on the blacklist. We will remain on the blacklist for the foreseeable future. The important thing to remember is that this blacklisting is not intended to "punish" GargWiki, but rather to prevent what were quite obvious incidents of link spam. Admittedly, it hasn't done us any good, and the ruling might seem unfair, but they have the weight of precedent and guidelines behind them. For now we've got to accept it and move on.

A bigger concern at present is the risk that AskGreg might also be blacklisted, because User:GT75gs has been using it as a means of circumventing the blacklisting. If it is put forward, there is no argument we can use that could keep it off. The only action we can take is to get in touch with the responsible parties, calmly explain the situation and, in a civil manner, try to convince them to stop.

Eventually, we can go and suggest that certain pages be added to the Wikipedia local whitelist. Trying to whitelist the Main Page is a bad idea, considering that's the one that was used for link spamming in the first place. I think the best suggestion for a first article to try and whitelist is the article on Demona, both because it is protected and because it had previously been on the Wikipedia article on Demona before the blacklisting without any problems. However, any instances of link spamming in this time will serious hamper efforts to have any page whitelisted, so we should probably wait for at least a couple of months before taking any other action, just to be sure that the problem has ended. What do you think? -- Supermorff 07:06, 22 April 2007 (CDT)

I think somebody needs to write to User:GT75gs asap. His/her user talk page would be a place to start. Vaevictis Asmadi 19:02, 24 April 2007 (CDT)

Thailog's Skin Color

I don't think of Thailog's skin as black. The color inspiration was the shift in uniforms for the Fantastastic Four when John Byrne took over. They went from light blue to dark blue after a trip through the negative zone. (Of course, I agree that Elisa's hair is black.)

His skin always looked black to me. In "Double Jeopardy" and in #3 of the comic. Though in "Sanctuary" and "The Reckoning" it looks really dark purple. So, it's officially dark blue?

While we're at it -- Greg W., I don't know if you can answer this, but did you have a particular color in mind for Malibu's hair? People seem to disagree whether it is black or green. Vaevictis Asmadi 10:21, 30 April 2007 (CDT)

I'm color deficient. So I can't tell you what colors anything is with any certainty. I can only tell you what was in my head. In my head, Goliath isn't WHITE skinned, so Thailog wouldn't be BLACK (and I'm talking actual white and black here, not caucasian or african). And Brooklyn's hair is white, so Malibu's is black. But again, if the evidence of your eyes is telling you something different... -- GDW

I pulled out an animation cel I have of Thailog and Demona, and yeah, he does look like a dark blue. A very dark blue. Always assumed it was for the same reason Elisa's hair is "blue". Still, nice to finally have this pinned down. --Greg Bishansky

Moved from "Talk:Greg Bishanky"

"1. Do not ask Greg Weisman questions here, there exists a website called Ask Greg (http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg) for asking him questions."

  • I wanted too... but the site is not accepting any questions as you can see...

2. You said you downloaded the first three issues of the comics. This is illegal, and this comic book needs all the sales it can get, please go out and buy them instead of downloading them. It's the same as theft. -- Greg Bishansky

  • Then why are they available for download???

The preceding comments were added to "Talk:Greg Bishansky" by User:Sevarius

Ok. Can I still ask Greg Weisman a question here? I can't do it on S8.org... -- Sevarius

Erik and Gunther

Thanks for changing those links, Greg. I wasn't sure how to do it. Where did the old spellings come from anyway? Did Greg W change the spelling? What was in the credits? --Matt

That's how Todd originally wrote their names. --Greg Bishansky

Episode Titles

I'd like to propose a change that would make things more consistent and more simple. Lets say I write about something that had occured in Issue #3 of the comic and after it I want to cite it. I hate having this whole big, clunky (Clan Building Chapter Three: Invitation Only) link. Wouldn't it be nicer simply to have it say (Invitation Only). I mean, afterall, when referencing The Mirror we don't write (Gargoyles Season Two: The Mirror). I think that keeping each episode consisten looks nicer. I understand that Invitation Only is part of a larger story, but in the Gargoyles context you could say that about every episode. Obviously, I'd still want Invitation Only to be catagorized with the SLG comics, and The Mirror catagorized with the tv episodes. I dunno, what do you think. --Matt

Sounds good to me. --Greg Bishansky

That's done. I also added introductory paragraphs so we didn't lose information formerly included in the page names. For the first two issues, I needed to add qualifiers, so someone may want to check that they are acceptable. -- Supermorff 10:57, 19 May 2007 (CDT)

Main Page

Greg, I think it's about time we prettified GargWiki's Main Page. I made a header and a featured article box (I picked the article Goliath fairly arbitrarily) based on ideas from Wikipedia and other wikis, and I've put them on my user page so you can see what they look like (the featured article is actually transcluded from GargWiki:Feature). They're just examples of things we could use, so you (or anyone) should feel free to make suggestions or changes. If in the end you don't think we should use either, that's fine, but I'd still like something on the Main Page that's a bit more inviting to new or casual users than the text and lists we use at the moment. What do you think? -- Supermorff 14:34, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

That isn't the same Goliath article we have, but it looks good. I can add it to the Main Page.

Okay. Did you decide not to use the header as well (it's at my user page)? I edited the Main Page so that the feature box is transcluded from its own page - it'll make it easier for editing later, if we decide to vary our featured articles. If you do use the header/banner however, that will probably need to be copied. By the way, is there a cascade option for protecting the main page, I mean so that it automatically protects pages that are transcluded on it? If not, we might want to protect GargWiki:Feature as well.
You can consider the featured article box as a sort of "introduction" into the main article. I picked what I thought was most important about the character. If anyone thinks I missed anything, then they should add it. ... Actually, I'll make it easier for people to edit the paragraph without worrying about all the code that's there as well. Back in a sec. -- Supermorff 16:11, 29 May 2007 (CDT)
I've now edited the feature page. The code (for the box, size, colour, etc) is now contained at GargWiki:Feature, and the actual content (the title, the picture and the paragraph) is at GargWiki:Feature-01. People can feel free to edit that page without having to worry about inadvertently changing the wiki markup. Any change made there will be instantly reflected on the Main Page.
If we wanted to, it wouldn't be too hard to use some or all of the text from the feature in the article itself. It might be worth having an introductory paragraph that explains why the character is important to the series. That's just a thought.
Let me know what you decide about that header/banner. -- Supermorff 16:24, 29 May 2007 (CDT)
Oop, guess you've answered that question. -- Supermorff 16:25, 29 May 2007 (CDT)

First-person

Hey, did you ever hear back from Todd regarding that stuff about his episode tidbits? Caswin 11:11, 2 June 2007 (CDT)

Greg? Where'd you go? Caswin 08:35, 3 September 2007 (CDT)

Villains

I see you've created, or in the process of creating a new category called "Villains". I would suggest against that. One of the things that's great about the series are the complex characters (as I'm sure you'll agree), and the Gargoyles Universe isn't quite as Black and White as "Heroes" and "Villains", which makes the storytelling more realistic. (Since real life isn't all black and white and is very complex as well.) So creating a whole separate category for "villains" isn't a good idea. Especially since some people you listed as "villains", like Xanatos, can reform to some extent, and Demona has more of a personal vendetta. Also, where do people like Fox, Dingo, Mace Malone, Martin Hacker, or the Canmores go? And how would you characterize "Villains" in the Gargoyles universe? They're more like antagonists to each other. Sure some, like Demona, have goals that are much more harmful than others, but as I said, it's not simple. So I hope you'll see me point and consider not creating such a category.--Moeen 18:55, 16 August 2007 (CDT)

Has Xanatos reformed at all? He may no longer be harming the gargoyles, but he is still a ruthless, amoral businessman. His scheming is far from done. Greg Weisman referred to the gargoyles' situation in an interview as "Sleeping with the enemy." As for Demona. She is my favorite character, a fascinating one. She is three dimensional. But, anyone who's trying to commit genocide is a villain in my book... she has her reasons, yes, but so does every historical villain in history. Dingo doesn't fall into the category because he is trying to be a hero. Mace Malone was a criminal, and we've never seen him engage in anything not... villainous. Hacker is too early to make a call on either way. Fox, well... she hasn't displayed any regret, I'd say she's still just as ruthless and amoral as her husband. The Canmores, well... Jason and Robyn have reformed.
Well, I think the problem is that Greg Weisman can blur the line between villain and antagonist. Villains are by definition "evil" and have a disposition towards evil that distinguishes them from antagonists. Xanatos is amoral, not quite "evil", though his unscrupulous behavior does put him in that direction. Look at Macbeth for example. Is he really a "villain"? I wouldn't say he's "evil", and if Macbeth is a villain does that make his former antagonist Canmore a "hero"? If you're really intent on keeping the category, you might at least try "antagonists" instead.--Moeen 19:16, 16 August 2007 (CDT)
If Macbeth was a villain, I'd say he's changed. Xanatos, however... this has always bothered me, how is he amoral but not evil? He manipulates and hurts people for his own personal gain, with only his wife, son, and now by extension the gargoyles as exceptions. Caswin 12:11, 17 August 2007 (CDT)
Well, according to Greg Weisman Xanatos is is amoral, not evil (you can check the archives yourself if you don't believe me). But to answer your question, it's not that Xanatos goes out of his way to hurt people, he only does so if it helps him achieve his goals. Evil people intentionally hurt people because they enjoy doing so. Amoral people will do whatever they feel is necessary to achieve certain goals. If they have to do some good to achieve it, they will do it, and if they have to do some bad, likewise. Xanatos would probably find spending time just to hurt people a waste, but he has no compunctions about it if he feels it will help him. It's just that so far he'd done a lot more bad than good. Though personally, I see where you're coming from, and have never found the whole "amoral" attitude particularly realistic or convincing, probably because all the amoral characters I know about end up doing a lot of bad.--Moeen 11:31, 18 August 2007 (CDT)
Count me in as someone who is very much against the "Villains" category. That just isn't Gargoyles. --Matt

What if you changed it to "Antagonists"? - gdw

Whose antagonists? The protagonists' antagonists? Who exactly are our protagonists? Do we count only Goliath? The Manhattan Clan? The Manhattan Clan and its close allies? What about the Redemption Squad in Bad Guys? If they ever come into conflict with the Manhattan Clan, do the Manhattan Clan become antagonists?
The entire notion is subjective, especially in a franchise that's as capable of evolving as Gargoyles is.
Here are some other tricky questions:
  • Does the category only include villains "at the present time", or are all characters that have ever been villains included? What about Goliath during "Eye of the Storm"? What about Demona if and when Dark Ages is produced?
  • Are we considering only the intent of such "villainous" characters, or only their actions? A bit of both, maybe?
I would prefer not to separate characters along these lines. However, if the decision is made to do so, I would then prefer "Category:Antagonists" over "Category:Villains", and I would appreciate some discussion to determine exactly where the dividing line is. -- Supermorff 11:31, 17 August 2007 (CDT)
I also oppose the idea of a "Villains" category. It goes against a major theme of "Gargoyles", that nothing is so black and white, that characters are complex and they can change. I don't even agree with having an "Antagonists" category for the subjectivity and time-period objections Supermorff cited, and because Bad Guys will probably blurr the lines between villains, antagonists, antiheroes, and protagonists. But Antagonists would be far preferrable to Villains. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 13:00, 17 August 2007 (CDT)
Why do we even need to make this category at all? What is the point? --Matt


Canon-in-training style

Hey, Greg. A while ago I had a thought about the way canon-in-training information looks on the site, in particular whether the distinction between canon and c-i-t info was clear enough. Small things that bothered me included using bold text for both the c-i-t info as well as in introductory paragraphs on every page. Eventually I came to the conclusion that, although the system we use now is pretty good, it could be even better. Long story short: I suggest that we make canon-in-training information a different colour from regular text. I've already drawn up a template that will make doing this easy (Template:CIT).

The specific colour I've chosen is cornflower blue. I think blue matches the rest of the site, and cornflower blue in particular has a good mix of subtlety and clarity (on my screen anyway). I would not object if someone had another preference.

What do you think of the idea in general, and of the example in particular? Changing the whole canon section over might take some time, but I think in the end it'll probably be worth it. -- Supermorff 12:02, 3 September 2007 (CDT)

Sure, go right ahead. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Greg Bishansky (talk).

I like that you picked a color that matches the outlinks that are being used to cite Ask Greg. I do wonder if the combination of bold plus a different color will stand out a bit too much, but I agree with you that changing the formatting from plain bold makes sense. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 11:28, 4 September 2007 (CDT)

It's weird, but having looked at it with a colour and without, I actually think it's less obvious without a colour (or, at least, the regular canon text stands out more). Maybe it blends into the background better? Maybe I'm just imagining it. I don't know. When I put the colour back in to the template, you can decide you yourself. Thanks for helping, by the way. -- Supermorff 11:26, 5 September 2007 (CDT)
That's what I mean, it is more obvious in color. I was specifically wondering if with a color, the bolding was no longer necessary. If nothing else, it would allow us to mark things that are already bolded for other reason, specifically dates in the Timeline. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 15:08, 5 September 2007 (CDT)
Oh! Oh, right. I did wonder that myself, for a while. Unfortunately, colour alone doesn't affect links. Without the bolding, it's impossible to tell whether a link is marked or not. But the good thing about a template is that we can muck about with the exact format of it later, so if we find a way around that it shouldn't be too hard to fix everywhere.
By the way, Greg, sorry we're carrying out this conversation on your talk page. I think we really need to create some sort of Community Portal, for discussions/suggestions like these involving the whole of GargWiki. For now, this page is as close as we get. -- Supermorff 10:06, 6 September 2007 (CDT)
You're right, of course, bolding takes in links as well. And if this is imposing on Greg's page, we can port the entire conversation over to the talk pages for the CiT category or the CiT template. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 12:01, 6 September 2007 (CDT)


Admins only

Hey, Greg. I was just wondering, is the wiki still locked so that only those with admin priveleges can edit it (I only just recently found out this was the case). If so, maybe it's time to unlock it, just for a while, to try and encourage some new users to join up? If you decide not to unlock it, then there are some new users that have signed up that currently cannot edit and it might be worthwhile making them admins. It's hard to tell which ones (if any) are really spam accounts, but I suspect that at least User:K9Thefirst1, User:Mordred 23, User:Phoenix-forge, User:Sonia rubab999@gargwiki.com, User:T smitts and User:GreenReaper were created by real people and not bots. There are probably others as well. If only there was some way of adding a captcha to the registering process, we could avoid this problem altogether. -- Supermorff 06:41, 27 September 2007 (CDT)

Demona

About Demona in "Mark of the Panther" She was mentioned by Angela but not named- "My father never talks about himself, or my mother." I thought that was acceptable since other episodes are listed where characters are alluded to but not named, ie: Elisa's father in "The New Olympians"--PGFish 15:42, 2 January 2008 (CST)

Okay, I forgot about that line. Mea culpa.

--~~

Demona-Series Bible

I added Demona's profile from the Gargoyles Bible [2], since I noticed other characters had a Series Bible section and she didn't. Is that ok? --Doop 23:05, 3 January 2008 (CST)

We're taking them down, actually.

Upgrading the Wiki

I've already asked Jeb about this, but if you're a system admin, you can do this too. That is, upgrade the current version of the wiki from 1.5.1, which is a couple of years out of date, to 1.11.0. Instructions on how to do so can be found here. Let me know how you'd like to proceed.--Moeen 16:18, 5 January 2008 (CST)

Castaway

Oh play fair, Greg. We obviously disagree about whether or not to categorise Castaway as a Hunter. Reverting each other's edits isn't going to get us anywhere, so let's work it out. Talk:John Castaway. -- Supermorff 17:09, 10 April 2008 (CDT)

Mab

Hi, it's Abbie, um I'm really really sorry for changeing the mab entry, I was only trying to help, I didn't mean to wreck it. I read that Mab was derived from the celtic goddess Medb and that was how she looked and so I just thought it might be a good theory, because I thought that the tinyness with more that one set of arms seemed far fectched and I thought that theroy came form romeo and juliet, I didn't know that greg said she was tiny, I'm really really sorry, please don't be mad at me! I'm really sorry. I won't do it again. IdrilFay 2:50, 23 August 2008

Favourite authors

Hey, Greg, did you know you mentioned Victor Hugo twice? Also, did you know that if you make a list with # at the start of lines instead of *, then it will automatically number them for you? -- Supermorff 12:46, 2 January 2009 (CST)

Questions for Robby

Greg, do you know if Robby Bevard has any more model sheets he might be willing to let us use? I think it's be particularly nice to have one for Fu-Dog, since their aren't that many great clear shots of him in the comic. I'd also love to get his opinion on what color Brookscro is and which Schnozz design is correct. (I'm assuming it's the one we see in "City of Stone," but I'm not sure.) -- Demonskrye 11:46, 7 September 2009 (CDT)

Eventually, he's putting all this stuff up. --GregX 18:23, 7 September 2009 (CDT)

Family tree

Hey Greg. Any particular reason you uploaded a new family tree image instead of using the one we had already? Just curious. -- Supermorff 10:18, 3 August 2010 (CDT)

Rotating Featured Article

I've made a little change to GargWiki:Feature. If it updates daily, then yes that's doable. If it doesn't, then probably not. Fingers crossed! -- Supermorff 07:02, 13 May 2011 (PDT)

It seems to be working. -- Supermorff 23:56, 13 May 2011 (PDT)

PNG Images

Just a hunch, but I think the .png for the images on the Fox, Coldsteel, and Coldfire pages needs to be capitalized (.PNG) . . . Without trying to assume too much, it seems like your converting the .JPG images to .png's so when I previewed the pages with the png capitalized, I didn't get the image, but this time a red link (meaning, I think, that the image had to be renamed with a '.PNG') instead of what's currently displayed (Error creating thumbnail: /web/gargwiki.net/htdocs/bin/ulimit4.sh: line 4: /usr/bin/convert: No such file or directory) -- Pheon 18:55, 14 May 2011 (PDT)

I can tell from the Recent Changes that it's not working . . . sorry about that, hopefully someone more well versed in the wikicodes can figure it out -- Pheon 19:09, 14 May 2011 (PDT)

I e-mailed JEB, hopefully he can help out. Because we need to be able to add new thumbnails to the site. -- GregX 19:13, 14 May 2011 (PDT)

YJ Reviews

Hey! Are you GregX? I noticed "his" reviews on WF are the same you post on Ask Greg. If so, could I interest you publishing them on YJ Wiki as well? Thogial 16:08, 16 October 2011 (PDT)

The thing about those reviews is that they think my perspective as someone largely ignorant of DC was an interesting viewpoint for the "Young Justice" reviews. For a wiki, I think you would prefer an expert. --GregX 16:12, 16 October 2011 (PDT)
Not really. A review is a review, i.e., an opinion, and yours is a valid as anyone else's. And your perceptive is shared by many. Thogial 16:18, 16 October 2011 (PDT)

Adminship

Is anything coming out from this? I just want someone to fix whatever is wrong with this wiki. It's very frustrating having ideas but not being able to see them through because parser functions (to say the least) don't work here. --Thogial 13:05, 19 July 2013 (PDT)

I've asked, but there's been no movement. I can try again. --GregX 13:06, 19 July 2013 (PDT)

Accounts

Another question: who are all these accounts that flood the RC every day? Are they spam bots or real people? --Thogial 04:18, 23 July 2013 (PDT)

Spam bots. --GregX 06:56, 23 July 2013 (PDT)
Can someone add a CAPTCHA requirement to the registration process? It's a simple solution to an extremely annoying nuisance. ---- Thogial (talk) 14:16, 1 September 2015 (PDT)
I asked the gentleman who owns the server to do it, and haven't ever gotten a response. GregX 18:35, 1 September 2015 (PDT)
