ResponsibilitiesEdit

As you are obviously aware, I was the founder of this wiki (back when it was a "wikicity") back in May of '05. This was after observing Memory Alpha's community (Wookieepedia was too new) and incorrectly believing a similar community would "flock" to a DCAU Wiki. I did everything I thought I could (posting on Toonzone among others, placing it on all my Wiki-related User pages), all the while doing my best (I had some wacky ideas though) to build this site by myself.

While I half-gave up around early August 2005 (after 3 months by myself), I became more focused on expanding myself at Memory Alpha (when I began to contribute more than minor edits). I became a lead contributor there and an admin in early January of '06 (I also started another wiki, which is still terrible, and became an admin at the X-Files wiki). It was not long after that, that I was forced by personal reasons to limit my internet access, and therefore editing of my wikis to occasional weekends.

CooperTFN's "appeal" in April is what basically led to the influx of editors that some are still around today. I was greatly surprised and thanked him for something that I apparently was unable/unwilling to do. I tried to remedy my situation by giving adminship to both CooperTFN and later Bonegnawer who both seemed to be the major editors. The situation apparently has sinced trinkled down to the three editors you mentioned, and although I've recently gained more Internet access (in late November), I still lack the time (full-time work) and the "drive" to do the editing I would wish to do.

One of the things I hate is abandoned wikis with little to no articles because their "founder" had abandonded it. Unfortunately, I guess I have almost become what I hate (I hope to remedy that). I'll try to write something tomorrow, and I'll stop messing with things I don't understand.--Tim Thomason 04:22, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Well, this site is not a priority ― it's a hobby; so you shouldn't feel guilty for not being able to put it before your personal problems. Sure, people might be driven away if the founder abandoned the site, but on the other hand, if this site had many editors, maybe they wouldn't even notice that. I don't even know who founded Wookieepedia, because it has such an expanded community, so it's not your fault that this site is almost deserted ― it's sort of a vicious circle.
It’s unfortunate that the most active members have apparently left, but this site is still growing and had lots of potential. I have plenty of bios I want to add, and there are a couple of n00bs who seem really committed. So nothing's lost. ― Thailog 11:11, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Season ChartEdit

On the Season Charts what do the double "#" lines mean? Did you mean to separate production by airdate number?--Tim Thomason 00:19, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

It was supposed to be production order numbers, but they were the same as the air date #. I fixed them now. ― Thailog 00:39, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

IP Block Edit

I've blocked to catch his attention, but all the edits I checked seemed fine. Let me know if he starts discussing the issue, and I'll unblock at once -- sannse (talk) 20:39, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Thank you. This user submitted texts with parts from the official WB site:
And these are just some examples of the texts that I was able to track down. Also, looking to the time span between his subs, it's highly unlikely that he is writings his own material (seeing as he already takes some from the official site). Also, the texts I wasn't able to trace down, were not in conformity to our established standards. That's why I asked him about it, to make sure that he wasn't taking everything from other sites, and avoid having to remove 30 bios. But he either doesn't know how a Wiki works, doesn't want to know, or is too immature to be part of such community.
And if you look here, you'll notice that 200.127.79.42 entered the exact same text as 24.41.41.209 did before, which was then removed by BoneGnawer. And, that user was suspended twice for the same offense. So it's very likely that these two unregistered users are the same, and we'll hear from him again. ― Thailog 21:28, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Re: ForumsEdit

How's this?

Hopefully, this'll solve some of the communications problems we've been having. It'd be a good place to post on topics not limited to a character or television series (e.g. Talk:Justice League (animated series) about DVD citations).

I've been meaning to do this for awhile, but you just gave me the right nudging, thanks.--Tim Thomason 03:52, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Looking great! Thanks. ― Thailog 09:42, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Mockingbird Edit

Hi Thailog, I've been looking at Mockingbird's contributions, and they don't appear to be a problem to me. they may not be perfectly formatted, or fully in-style, but that's to be expected from a new contributor. It's better to just make changes as needed, and to help and encourage people to learn more as they edit, rather than to demand compliance with the wikis manual of style instantly. At least he is contributing content, which is a great start. Remember, wikis were never meant to be built in a day... perfection is a goal, never a reality, on a wiki ;) Keep up the good work -- sannse (talk) 21:13, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Mockingbird is not new. He's the same anonymous user who has been giving us hell for the last weeks. I can tell by the articles he contributes to, the content he adds, and his writing style, otherwise I wouldn't have been so blunt. Notice how he didn't reply (or read) my message to him again. How can we teach him if we can't communicate with him? ― Thailog 21:33, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I know it's the same guy, he emailed me to say he had registered and that he was hoping things would go better. He seems to be having problems in replying to messages, or maybe is not good at communicating, but I think that he still has something to offer this wiki -- sannse (talk) 22:04, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
I'm sure he does; but part of collaborating is cooperating, and just like any other wiki, we have standards and guidelines that need to be followed to steer this ship towards the same direction. We can't accept everything and be expected to clean up after people who, for whichever reason, can't abide by established rules. Part of contributing is also doing it correctly, and anyone here is more than wiling to help out newcomers, but something like that cannot be done if communication does not flow both ways.If you have his e-mail, then I urge you to refer him to a tutorial that covers the basics of Wiki. ― Thailog 22:34, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

AdministratorshipnessEdit

There you go. Now stop bothering me. (jk)--Tim Thomason 00:36, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Much obliged. ― Thailog 00:43, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Recent Changes notes Edit

You can modify that text by editing MediaWiki:Recentchangestext. See w:MediaWiki:Recentchangestext for example. --Splarka (talk) 23:10, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Ha! Thanks! ― Thailog 23:20, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Legion of SuperHeroes Edit

The redirect works. Please check before making changes, especially deletion of articles. Your browser cache may need to be refreshed. --BoneGnawer 18:42, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

I did refresh it. And the redirect worked after I deleted the article; that's why I didn't create the page again with a new redirect. ― Thailog 18:44, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Eiling Pics Edit

Why did you change them? Seems a bit unnecessary. -BoneGnawer 11:54, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Oh. I had those stashed until I (or someone else) made the article. I just replaced them because they look a bit 'better' and don't have the network's logo on it. But revert them if you prefer the other ones. ― Thailog 12:04, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
I do like the "normal" Eiling one better, not having the glass in frame, but I like my shot of the mutated Eiling because its a wider shot. I suggest discussing image changes before making them, especially when the current image adheres to our guidelines. You may upset editors by second-guessing their creative choices without discussion. --BoneGnawer 12:07, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
We don't have guidelines for selecting pictures; we should though, so that people don't just take the first they see or submit pics from fan sites without proper crediting. Replaced pictures can be easily reversed, that's why I don't delete the earlier versions for a couple of weeks. ― Thailog 13:16, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Resolving Issues Edit

Thailog, you are a valued editor here, and I like the vast majority of your contributions, however I dislike butting heads with you, so I'd like to discuss a couple of what I believe are recurring issues.

  1. In the past, when I have written conjecture into articles, you were opposed to it. I saw the wisdom of presenting a purely canonical reference, and conceded the point. However, as I look back through history, it seems to me that you don't mind conjecture, as long as it is your conjecture or conjecture that you agree with. That sort of double-standard is not acceptable, and frankly it was one of the reasons I was hesitant to support your admin nomination.
    We are talking about two different things, I think. I always have and always will oppose to include conjecture in the main body of an article. However, I think the point of disagreement here is that you believe that Hawkman's background is conjecture, while I think it's simply implied facts, albeit not stated. Conjecture to me is saying that Killer Frost is Crystal Frost or Louise Lincoln, when we have no evidence to support that. ― Thailog 15:57, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
  2. I've noticed that you have a tendency to let emotion seep into your discussions, and you often use condescending language. This is simply unacceptable, especially for an admin. Please try to keep an even tone and stick to the facts of the discussion.
    Could you give me some examples of those occurrences? Rest assured, if I ever sounded belligerent, it was unintentionally. I always tried to conduct myself in a civil and professional manor, before and specially after becoming admin. ― Thailog 15:57, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Again, I believe you are a great asset to this wiki, I just need to address these points with you in an effort to eliminate conflicts. --BoneGnawer 14:56, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Like I said, I never intended to be confrontational or aggressive. I just think that, particularly on the mentioned issue, when someone claims that some information is misplaced, and they rewrite it to meet their preferences, that very same someone also should make the effort to preserve the original work. As it is, the article of Hawkman contains nothing that explains why he is (or might be) the reincarnation of Katar Hol, other than the character's own convictions. The text only contains supposition, as opposed to implications supported by the facts I brought up. You reworded the text and you are telling them to add what I think is missing. No offense, but I find that's somewhat inconsiderate. ― Thailog 15:57, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
and frankly it was one of the reasons I was hesitant to support your admin nomination
Then you should have brought it up in the appropriate time, so that I could defend myself and avoid these conflicts and misunderstandings. Also, and I don't mean this to undermine you, BoneGnawer, but don't forget you were an appointed admin, as opposed to have been selected by the community. That doesn't make you any less qualified for the job, but I don't think it's fair that you are evoking these issues and questioning my admin qualities at this point, since you had the change to do it before, and no one had the change to judge yours. ― Thailog 15:57, 17 February 2007 (UTC)


I'm not questioning whether you should be an admin. I did support your nomination, and I think you're doing a good job overall. I'm just pointing out areas for improvement.
One example of condescending tone is:
Do you mean you wanted this "theory" (as so you call it) to be explained out loud on the show like in other shows targeted for 5-year-olds? from Talk:Hawkman
The other that comes immediately to mind is in the discussion on the Appearances template on Grimorum. All I ask is that you read your own comments before posting them and take a moment to consider how you would feel if someone made the same comment to you.
Oh, I can see how that came out sounding condescending, but believe me, that was not my intention. I was trying to make a point and probably didn't use the most correct analogy... What I wanted to say, on both instances, was that I oppose to "dumbing down" the content of our contributions to make it "easily understood" when it's so obvious if you simply resort to common sense. ― Thailog 16:31, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
In the Hawkman article, I reworded the text to reflect the ambiguity presented by the episode. I added the Background section to note the similarities to the comics. I'm not sure what else I could include short of "It wasn't mentioned in the episode, but Gardner had been right all along", and that statement isn't necessarily true given the ambiguity in the episode. --BoneGnawer 16:16, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
The background info should be more precise and say why they are similar; it should contain the parallels between both characters' background (from both the comics and the DCAU). ― Thailog 16:31, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Deletion Policy Edit

I like what you've been doing when we delete articles/files (archiving the discussion in a separate place). Could you write up this process as a policy proposal? I want to add it to Category:Policies on the DCAU Wiki--BoneGnawer 15:09, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

No problem. But do you mean this should be a "Archiving Policy" or a process that should be included in a "Deletion Policy" you'll be adding soon? ― Thailog 18:52, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
I'd like the archive of the discussion leading up to a deletion to be considered part of the deletion process. --BoneGnawer 19:29, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
Ah. I though you just wanted me to describe the process of archiving, as opposed to the process of deletion, which begins with the nomination and concludes with the archiving. I'll work something out. ― Thailog 19:49, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Re: Wiki table (Template:Btasdvd1/doc) Edit

Looks fine here, what browser are you using? (no need email attachments, icky). --Splarka (talk) 06:33, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Firefox... Sometimes the lines disappear when I check the table on other templates. ― Thailog 09:05, 15 May 2007 (UTC)
Odd, it looks fine to me. Okay, upload a screenshot? (or put it on imageshack or flickr or something). --Splarka (talk) 02:19, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Here. ― Thailog 09:14, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Hmm, might be the border-collapse then. I also moved it to css. Try it now? (Yah, the borders are too thick, but see if they disappear?) --Splarka (talk) 06:37, 18 May 2007 (UTC)


Penguin images Edit

When i took these i took these shots and saved to .JPG, i'm gonna reupload as .PNG.

Can you please delete these images:

  • Image:PenguinSurprised.jpg
  • Image:I've got penguin in my Basement.JPG
  • Image:BLIND Bird.jpg
  • Image:Strange secret.JPG
  • Image:Birds of a feather.JPG

Thanks -- WarioLoaf 17:54, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Green Lantern Edit

Why did you change my edit to Green Lantern's opening quote on the page? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Along (talkcontribs)20:58, 4 July 2007 (UTC) (UTC).

Why did you change the existing quote? ― Thailog 21:30, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
I changed the opening quote because I think it better sums up what the character is about. In my opinion, if you use a quote at the very begining of an article it should be about the whole character not just one part of them.
I think GL's "Brightest Day, Blackest Night" speech should be somewhere on that page and the begining quote is the most logical place for it, as it would throw off the article's structure if placed anywhere else. (Believe me I looked)
You're the Admin so if you want me to leave it alone I will, but think about what I've said. I've been trying to improve this whole Wiki for a while now and it'll be easier for us both if we work with each other and stop clashing over little things. The way you cleaned up my, somewhat rough, rewrite of Meta-Brawl is a good example of working together to form a better site. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Along (talkcontribs)02:12, 7 July 2007 (UTC) (UTC).
The GL oath applies to every GL, so that can't be representative of John's character alone. In fact, while you say that "it better sums up what the character is about", the current quote says the exact opposite.
Also, please sign your posts using four tildes (~~~~). Thanks. ― Thailog 09:56, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Boxies Edit

Whoops. Got the hand of it. added them to the last two Penguin toys. -- WarioLoaf 13:54, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

WTF Edit

O.K. here we go again. I let the GL thing go like I said I would, even though John Stewart's oath is different from the traditional GL oath, but this time I have DCAU backup in my complaint.

You undid my change to the War Wheel page. War wheels is NOT a conjectural title. In the JLU episode I Am Legion, a former member of the Blackhawks referes to them as "War Wheels". If you want this Wiki to be any good you need to stop messing with other people's work just because you can.--Along 01:14, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

When were remove something like that you need to give a reason, specially to avoid situations like these. You can't expect people to guess your reason. You ought to say why the title was not conjectural on the summary, and not on my talk page. ― Thailog 10:43, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
Fine, I redid my change to the page and explained why. Now anyone besides you or me will see that last section and wonder what I'm talking about. I'll be sure to put the same irrelevant information on any changes I make in the future. That way, you won't have to "guess my reason", or do your homework to see that I'm right.
Don't do me any favors. But please, keep acting like an errant child. That will take you miles. I don't care what you think is irrelevant or not. And no one here should have an encyclopedic knowledge of the DCAU and blindly trust random and unexplained changes like yours. It's plain professional courtesy to say why something like that should be removed. ― Thailog 23:05, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
I'm sorry my previous statement seemed childish, but I thought I might have more success talking to you at your own level.
As far as professional courtesy goes, try showing the rest of us some, and you might get some back in return. I've read some of the other posts on this page, and I'm not the only one who doesn't like how you keep removing our work. No matter how good a job you do at something, it can always be improved on. Undoing any work anyone else does, on everything you've written is immature.
This Wiki won't get any better unless you swallow your pride and work WITH the rest of us to improve it.--Along 00:49, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
Right... This from someone who leaves me a message every time I reverse something you changed... If you can't take advice like a man, then I won't give you any. This conversation is over. ― Thailog 08:21, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

I'm trying to make some improvements here. God knows this Wiki needs it. If you have advice to give, then I'll gladly hear you out, but removing everything I do isn't giving me advice, its flatout being disrespectful to me.

At least have the courtesy contact me if you don't understand why I made a change. The world will not end if have to wait one day for me to tell you why I did something. If you don't get a reply in 24 hours, change it back, and I will get back to you when I can.--Along 01:21, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

CongratulationsEdit

Two months-plus belated congratulations on your bureaucraticship. God knows the site needs one as good and as present as you. Now go easy on me.

/me ducks from expected snippy comments.--Tim Thomason 21:51, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Well, thanks. I'm glad to see you didn't completely abandon the site. Hope you find the time to come here more often. ― Thailog 09:49, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Animation Services Edit

I just need to know, are all Batman Beyond Animation Services by the same provider? If they are, then I'll go ahead and keep putting up the provider you used on Rebirth. If not... then please let me know who to credit. MrWhitman 16:53, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

I believe they are. In any case, you can check WF for that effect. ― Thailog 17:51, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the greeting Edit

Hey thanks for the greeting there, I find it very awesome that there is a DC Animated Wiki. And yeah, I am a Christian, and I am sorry to upset anyone, but what I edited wasn't solely based on my Christianity but the fact that it is a hand in that episode at the beginning of time, which signals creation and God I'd say. But as for me putting creation as the explanation, is the original explanation of the "big bang" put their really any more fair? Not trying to start something here, just asking. But thanks again for the welcome, I hope to help out around here as I have at Wikipedia. But one question. The article for Commissioner Gordon is "James Gordon" right? I filled in that page but when I found it as short as it was I was concerned I'd stumbled upon a revert page. But I always liked Gordon so filling up a lot of his history in the shows was cool. I probably should have noted his approval of Dick dating Barbara and all as seen in Subzero. But hey thanks again man, this is an awesome site.The Roar 07:18, 4 November 2007 (UTC)JesusFreak89

Thanks to call to my mind.. Edit

Sorry. I forgot to write source and to add license. i got it. Thanks..

PS: My English is not so good. i usually work with images and short texts. --Akadirgun 21:44, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Re:Perspective Edit

Got it, thanks.

Penguin Article revisions done: FA?Edit

Heyo, i have just revised Penguin 's article. Before i nominate it next month do you think it now deserves FA? Just revised the entire history section. -- WarioLoaf 13:25, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

I was just going over it. Still plenty of typos and grammar problems. ― Thailog 13:30, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

YouTube as a Picture Source? Edit

I was wondering if it's acceptable to use images from YouTube as a source and if so, how would I cite it? I found some episodes of Static Shock there and will be writing up on them. MrWhitman 16:57, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

That's great news! As for the sourcing, you can go with the original source of the video... Even though it was uploaded on Youtube, you should simply cite the original broadcast. Cartoon Network or WB!. Whatever the case may be. See Image:Timecode.png for example. ― Thailog 19:58, 14 March 2008 (UTC)


Wonder Woman/ Batman Relationship? Edit

I've added some references to the writer's experimentation with a Batman/ Wonder Woman relationship. These need to stay in. You're calling them "conjecture," but I'm taking words directly from the scripts. I'll be happy to back up "conjecture" with interviews with Timm and McDuffie. This is pretty significant- you can't have material about Batman and Wonder Woman without acknowledging writers' intentions in the DCAU continuum. It may even need its own page, but since you started this, I'll avoid that big step.--Lamlsk 20:30, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

I think their intentions were made pretty obvious, however, the relationship was never confirmed. When you claim that there actually was a secret relationship whereas there was no confirmation on-screen, then that's conjecture. Also, please avoid pointing out every hint or innuendo to a romance between Batman and Wonder Woman in episode recaps. Let's leave interpretations to the viewers and our readers. I'm referring to phrasing like this "Batman admits, "Maybe," admitting that he and Wonder Woman have "a thing," and that they are keeping it under wraps" ― Thailog 21:02, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
I completely reverted your edits to maintain the neutrality of the texts. Your references point to a secret relationship between the characters, while all we had were nothing more than insinuations and teasing on the writers' behalf. Please leave it alone. ― Thailog 21:12, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Regarding Jay Garrick, and Nightwing's bio Edit

Hi Thailog! I've seen that you have removed my article on Jay Garrick. Yes, he has never appeared in any of the DCAU-films. But since he has appeared in Justice League Unlimited #12 and has confirmed in that issue that he was Wally's inspiration to become the second Flash, shouldn't he have an own article? I thought that we could write about anything in the DCAU - the films and the comics taking place in that universe.

One more thing: about Dick Grayson during the gap between BTAS and TNBA (2 years if I remember it right). According to the comic book-series The Batman Adventures - The Lost Years, Dick trained under different masters and teachers during the two year gap. This means that he possibly can't have been with the Titans. Dick had many adventures with them, in my opinion - it's impossible that Dick can have fought against Slade and other villains, and later trained with the masters during these two short years! Yes, I'm also a fan of the Titans, and I belong to the group claiming that Teen Titans took place before Batman The Animated Series. I think that is the most logical idea. My question is: May I write about these Titans-DCAU discussions on the Nightwing-page? --Asdjol 21:02, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

I, Asdjol. There has been an ongoing argument about the canocity of these DCAU comics. See here. ― Thailog 21:30, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I see your point. I don't know if I have missed something, but I've got some more questions after I read it. I agree with you all that Adventures in the DCU is not canon, but the others seem logical to me. I mean, the TNBA-episodes Holiday Knights, Sins of the father and Mad Love are actually based on stories published in The Batman Adventures. So why can't some of stories "The Batman Adventures" and its sequels be considered canon? And I have read that the five-comic series The Batman Adventures The Lost Years took place between BTAS and TNBA. The editor Scott Peterson wrote this in the final issue of Batman & Robin Adventures: "...Working in conjunction with Paul Dini, one of the animated show's producers, we came up with a chronological timeline of when and where things happened. About 40% of these events will be on the show; the rest will be shown here for the first time ever. In The Batman Adventures: The Lost Years (our first ever miniseries), you'll get to see in expanded detail what led Dick Grayson to leave the Batcave, how Batgirl became part of the team, where the new Robin came in and how Nightwing was born."
I have one final thing to ask of you. I would be appreciated if you give me either a comment or feedback the next time you remove some of my future texts. I never got an explanation of why Jay Garrick was removed, leading to my conversation with you now.
Happy Easter holidays! --Asdjol 18:46, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Category:Superheroes Edit

Sorry, didn't see the subs.

Roygbiv666 19:01, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

New Category: Giants? Edit

I've just recently finished writing up an article about Titano and I started thinking it might be a good idea to have a category for giants. Others in this one would be The Prometheon, Long Shadow, and Giganta. I don't know if there's enough characters to justify a new category however, so I thought it best I ask. --MrWhitman 05:06, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Don't forget Atom-Smasher and Micron. I think it's a good idea. Go for it. ― Thailog 06:51, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

skin Edit

Hi there! My name's Scott, founder of Muppet Wiki and contractor for Wikia with a focus on Entertainment wikis. I'm working on a project to help wiki admins migrate over to the Monaco skin which was launched in February. Although the older skins will be available for individual users to select in their own preferences, Wikia will no longer be supporting them. In case you haven't seen it yet, the Monaco skin is the version with the navigation links back on the left side (like in Monobook, the Wikipedia skin). You can preview what the DCUA Wiki will look like by going to Special:Preferences and clicking the preview links. There are also options to customize the look by changing color schemes and adjusting other elements. Take a look at some examples here: Star Wars and Hot Wheels.

So before any default changes are made, I wanted to be sure you knew what was going on. If you need help changing the default, or you decide you'd like to customize the skin to fit the theme of this wiki, please let me know what I can do to help. Thanks! —Scott (talk) 06:39, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

I set up a custom version of the navigation bar which you can preview here. To edit those elements, only admins see the "Edit this menu" link at the bottom of the rollout list menus. Let me know if you have any questions about that. Thanks! —Scott (talk) 20:03, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Hi again. Just wanted to let you know that Wikia's changes are going into effect soon. I'll be working on the front page to make sure things don't break. Just in case you wonder what I'm up to. Here's some more information about the changes in case you didn't see the notice. —Scott (talk) 20:42, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
All the wikis are moving to monaco, but we're trying to work with the communities to help them make the transition rather than flipping a switch and moving everybody at once which could potentially break things. We'll eventually get to Wiki 24, it just so happens that DC Animated was next on the list of those I'm trying to help out. —Scott (talk) 21:42, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
So, the ads went live today on the main page. I've shifted around some of the tables so that things didn't break. Please feel free to adjust whatever works best and let me know if you have any questions. Also, FYI, ads on content pages are scheduled to be going away for logged-in users this week; so that's a nice bonus to look forward to :) —Scott (talk) 19:14, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

About the picture Edit

Hello and thanks for the greeting Thailog. Regarding the picture, I apologize if I'm causing any trouble, on my first day around here. I noticed other episodes include pictures with their opening titles and I wanted to do the same with "House & Garden". I took the picture myself with BS Player, that's why it's called bscap0003. I don't claim anything as my own, Batman belongs to Warner Bros. Inc. I bought the DVDs, I took the screenshot. But if it's this troublesome, then you can delete the picture. I'm sure people are more interested in the content of an episode rather than pictures of it anyway. Just sorry if I'm causing problems or anything.

New Format Edit

Hello, Thailog, it's Matches Malone. I was just wondering, what's up with the Wiki's new format? It seems a little... limited in capability compared to the old one... Care to elaborate, please? Don't worry, I still am just as faithful to the Wiki as ever! Please leave your response on my User page's "discussion" tab. One last thing; I'm not trying to be disrespectful; my comments may seem a bit harsh, but they're not meant to be so!

TNBA Edit

Thailog-- It's Matches Malone again. I just left a comment to say that The New Batman Adventures article needs some cleaning up. I'm doing the best I can as to getting rid of all of the fragments and replacing them with sentences, but I can't really fledge the article out. Maybe you could alert some of the others? It's your call as always, however.

P.S. From now on, you can just call me Matches.  :)

The Savage Time Edit

Thailog,

I see you changed my change on "The Savage Time":

from

Cassandra Cain to Annie

The reason I changed it was because Annie didn't have enough association with Batman to be part of his "family" the girl is clearly Cassandra Cain, in her only animated appearance.

This is backed up on Wikipedia "Cassandra Cain" and I can get a reference if I need to.

Of course, you're in charge, but this is the facts.

ComicsEdit

Are the comics considered to be non-canon with regards to this wiki? Because if they aren't, Barry Allen did appear within them, as I understand. -- SFH 15:58, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Pseudo-"Blasphemy" Edit

While I, personally, wasn't the one deleting the "Catwoman's new beau" line from the Catwoman bio, I will say it is a little off. She was toying with the mouthy little punk, but it seems a bit wrong to say that he's her "beau". As long as people who may have never seen the episode get the message that she would never be interested in "Big Robin", or "Big Bird", I see no problem. But, I will say, I think this little site of your's is a great idea, and I've enjoyed reading it, and I'll pass along the message that you don't like your stuff being deleted. You shouldn't get any more deletions from this profile.

Innocent Edit

Like I said, I, personally, didn't delete it. My computer is shared in my house, by other comic fans. Regardless of how I feel about any of it, I didn't delete your stuff. one of the other users did. But, then again, it doesn't matter. I told everyone not to rip of any of the things posted here.

Redirects Edit

Thailog, I understand why you deleted DC comics, as you thought it was an unneccessary redirect. Now allow you me to tell you why it is a reasonable redirect. I have been contributing to Wookieepedia for years, and let me tell you, I have seen every possible permutation of the word Grievous, Anakin, and Palpatine. Some people just make a spelling mistake (or they can't spell) they find an article that they think is needed, and more often than not, they write it with bad grammer. Oh, by the Source, how bad the grammer is. So trust me: a reasonable redirect is a lot less trouble than a poorly written out article. -- SFH 16:47, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Hey! Could you help me out here? Edit

Hey! I know we got off on the wrong foot. I know what's canon and non-canon now but I still don't know what images I can use and can't use. For example, you said I couldn't use anything from World's Finest and that I have to list the source, but I don't see any other pages doing that. I'm going to use an image from World's Finest of Queen and caption it, and if that's wrong, by all means tell me so I don't get blocked again.

Gypsy authentication Edit

Hey! Thailog, I've just verified the character Gypsy from justice League Unlimited through this address:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gypsy_(comics)#In_other_media

and am going to proceed with expanding the article.
