Hi, welcome to Supernatural Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the File:Sean rogerson.jpg page.
Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help you with anything!
Also note that we are in the process of converting articles written in the present tense to the past tense. So you are welcome to edit any such article you come across. Once again, Welcome! Calebchiam (talk) 14:50, December 7, 2015 (UTC)
Good evening, I would appreciate to hear your thoughts on that matter: http://supernatural.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Lambda1/EmpyreanSmoke_Admin_right_removal_and_infinite_ban --Lambda1 (talk) 20:47, December 7, 2015 (UTC)
Since we have pages for the anime show, we should keep contents seperated. It can cause edit wars such as Azazel being an angel in anime but not in the show. People start to insert false information on both pages. SeraphLucifer (talk) 08:10, July 23, 2016 (UTC)SeraphLucifer
Hey, I was just making sure that you are planning on using all the photos you've uploaded. There is thirteen unused photos, on the first page. If your not going to use them, please mark them for deletion. I do want to personally thank you for your contributions though. Those pages are helping us become a more dominant resource on matters relating to Supernatural. Zane T 69 (talk) 00:30, August 3, 2016 (UTC)
Okay, first you go to Special:Images, you should probably scan pages 1-5. If you uploaded them, you need to use or delete them. To mark for deletion, right click, then click open in new tab/window. To mark for deletion scroll down, till you see option to add categories at bottom. Then add category "Speedy Deletion Candidates".Zane T 69 (talk) 20:16, August 8, 2016 (UTC)
Hey Reka, I just wanted to thank you for what you've been doing recently and improving the wiki, your work is good and helpful. Appreciated. SeraphLucifer (talk) 20:46, August 18, 2016 (UTC)SeraphLucifer
Saw your message on Calebs wall, thought I would provide you with more information. Links weren't working so i'l copy/paste:
Anyone can revert vandalism and bad-faith edits, but it takes a couple of clicks in the page history to get it done. Users with the "rollback" tool can undo bad edits with one click, by using the rollback link on diff pages, user contributions list, or the list of recent changes.
You have been granted use of the rollback tool. Please keep in mind that it should only be used in the reverting of vandalism; good-faith edits should be undone with an explanation in the edit summary. Cheers. Calebchiam Talk 13:20, August 26, 2016 (UTC)
I just wanted you to know, "The Girl in the Wall"'s name is Lizzie Gibson. That's a fact. I suggest using it simply because it is easier and more convinient. There are a handful of characters on this wikia who use names that weren't used in the episode but really are their names, example : the demon Tom. Kajune (talk) 11:52, September 9, 2016 (UTC)
Personally, I don't think it counts. You could say the same about Nadia, who wrote Nadia's codex, which is a very important tool used in both season 10 and 11. Or even Abel. Or maybe even Inyo and Cacao. Inyo had pictures and pretty much is the center of the episode, as well as Cacao, but they had little 'direct' involvement with the story. They were only mentioned. But...I don't know the official rule on this, so...up to you, really. Kajune (talk) 14:32, September 9, 2016 (UTC)
No, you saying you have proof is enough. You have proven your value and trustworthiness to this wiki. I just wanted to hear you say you have proof, in case it's contested.Zane T 69 (talk) 21:53, October 28, 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry for making you sad. I was concerned the wiki might be punished as a whole. I was just making sure, I'm paranoid, and have been betrayed and burned several times. If anything, I was annoyed at the staff member, I didn't see how that picture violated wikias rules. Zane T 69 (talk) 23:39, October 28, 2016 (UTC)
- Would you mind giving your opinion on the proposed background and logo change? Link: here. Zane T 69 (talk) 15:42, November 7, 2016 (UTC)
- To clarify, you support a black background color, oppose the current presentation of the twitter feed? Thank you, for your opinion by the way. Zane T 69 (talk) 18:12, November 7, 2016 (UTC)
RE: Supernatural Wikia Actor Template
Although I did update the templates, I'm not in any position to change the actual functionality. The category was in the original template, and I passed it over to the portable infobox.
(Explanation added to my own talk page, but nevermind, here it is) Ah, I felt it was excessive. There is little writing and I prefer the pictures and text to be evened out. That particular picture was the only one without caption, so I thought, yeah, this one can go. Bring it back if you want. Kajune (talk) 15:57, November 7, 2016 (UTC)
Of course. I was simply going through Images and categorizing them to make them more visible. They were essentially hidden images, unless someone searches. Zane T 69 (talk) 17:51, November 9, 2016 (UTC)
I have no idea what your talking about. I didn't alter the sections for the Era's prior to Singer & Dabb, or the seasons 1-11. I simply added what you asked of me. It must be your computer because I didn't alter the other season information; in anyway, whatsoever. Zane T 69 (talk) 21:03, November 9, 2016 (UTC)
Wiki Activity issue has recieved an answer, It's our fault. The massive image categorization caused it. Obviously neither of us are in trouble, those edits were essential and needed for the long term. Zane T 69 (talk) 22:16, November 9, 2016 (UTC)
I'm actually done with my part, I was making them visible in a publicly accessible part of the wiki. If you put a more informative category on though, remove the Images category. I used it as a universal category. The goal is draw in more users with potential edits and increase user participation. But if you want to leave them for newer users that would be even better. Though try categorizing all the photos you upload from now onward, which I noticed you started good and great work by the way. Zane T 69 (talk) 22:29, November 9, 2016 (UTC)
You haven't made me mad. He honestly appeared to be playing around on the page. He made thirteen edits to the same page, your welcome to personally review his edits yourself. Simply view the page history of this page. Zane T 69 (talk) 00:44, November 19, 2016 (UTC)
I have not, nor have I ever called you a name; other than "Reka". I was saying I'm not a jerk and don't run around trying to be. He obviously has experience editing, disproving your theory. I had to step in and make sure he's not taking advantage. I will try to be nicer in the future. Zane T 69 (talk) 01:36, November 19, 2016 (UTC)
Hi, this is according me Brady without doubt yet my friend wasn't sure, can you confirm it?
Sorry, I cannot confirm this for you. Please do not post any more graphics on this page.Thanks.Reka12452 (talk) 19:24, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
Certain, considered per your suggestion
Zane - i have considered it, and have decided that creatures are all monsters, therefore the 'Creature' category is irrelevannt. so, just consider it another potential excuse to carry on with your edit havesting . Reka12452 (talk) 23:40, December 18, 2016 (UTC)
Reka, we operate on consensus here and doing that would make a mess of the categories and undo years of hard work. As for your accusations of "edit harvesting"; I have to make those edits to categorize the photos, because no one else is. I have YEARS of work, neglected by previous admins, to do and I'm the most active Admin. I have all that work, plus all kinds of offline work to do.
But I'm glad all the work I've done here is noticed and appreciated, yes this sentence is sarcasm.
Since the being in debate is in fact - a monster - your 'warning' is null. so if you go all admin on me and pull your blocking thing, we will meet in a different forum.Reka12452 (talk) 00:08, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
It is labeled a "Creature" on both the Monster page and Shtriga page. Since your ego has grown to the point where you feel yourself Ruler of the Wiki, I'll consult other Admins. In the mean time, if you vandalize a page; you will be given the appropriate punishment. Zane T 69 (talk) 00:16, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
I really do not believe that an objective observer would say that I am carrying on as "Ruler of the Wiki", especially in comparison to you, who actually responded to someone who made a legit edit "Don't get into an edit war with an admin" . And, not to put too fine a point on it...creatures are monsters. You accept that, yes?Therefore, if so, i haven't vandalisied anything. And even if i had, no one even sees the 'category' of an image, except those looking for it, so who would be my target audience? why would i vandalise something i've been trying to enhance? Reka12452 (talk) 00:56, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
First of all, it wasn't a legit edit. As I said above both the Monster and Shtriga page lists the Shtriga as a Creature. The photo you labeled monster was a Shtriga, a creature. And no, I do not accept that Creatures are monsters, the best way to classify monsters is descendants of Eve. So yes, you did vandalize a page and then tried justifying it and forcing your belief upon others. Furthermore, I'm considering reviewing your previous categorization of images. You weren't try to "enhance" something, you were trying to get easy edits, without even trying to do a good job.
Also, you said, and I quote/copy and paste "Zane - i have considered it, and have decided that creatures are all monsters, therefore the 'Creature' category is irrelevannt."
You said "You decided." this wiki operates on consensus, it's not your personal domain to exert absolute control over. This wiki must accurately portray everything in it, to be a reliable resource. That means factual, confirmed information. Zane T 69 (talk) 01:25, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
Carry on with what you feel is best for SPN and the wikia, Zane.Reka12452 (talk) 01:37, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
The debate on what goes on the monster page has been reopened. Your opinion on the issue would be welcome. you can find the link here Talk:Monster#Monsters_omitted_part_2 Thank you--ThomasNealy (talk) 22:49, January 19, 2018 (UTC)
Thank You for your upload of images. Please note that all uploaded files must be used on a page. This wiki does not act as a host for images or allow personal images. If the images are not used with in 24 hours, they will be deleted. Thank you for helping to make this wiki a better place. --ThomasNealy (talk) 18:44, February 1, 2018 (UTC)
I have begon deleting your unused uploaded images. Please do not upload images that you have no intention of using. It looks like you were edit harvesting. --ThomasNealy (talk) 19:40, February 2, 2018 (UTC)
According to new guidelines, photos should ideally be used with 24-hours and your photos have not. In the future, should your edits be deemed edit harvesting, you will be blocked for three days. Unused photos are being actively cleansed to free up server space and make the wiki more manageable, as such, we cannot allow special treatment. Zane T 69 (talk) 19:52, February 2, 2018 (UTC)
ThomasNealy - I have not had the pleasure of dealing with you before but I assume you are a new admin, although I did not see you listed on the front page. In any case, i would like just like to let you know that i like to screen-capping SPN episodes (seasons four and five are examples) and have uploaded tons of images as a result.
I fully intend, and have always fully intended to use every image that i uploaded, but it is hard for me to place them until i get them uploaded and arrange them. I cannot find the 24 hr limit policy posted on the Wikia, and if there is one, i kindly request that you or Zane post the link to it. I This is to inform you that I am going to re-upload the images that you have deleted thus far.
I usually try to ensure that i have not left an image unused, and if i have, i request that it be deleted, if given a chance to do so. At one point in history, there was a very effective “Speedy Deletion Category” that could be assigned to such images, but some sweeping power among us decided to do away with it.
Zane - it is almost laughable that you have the nerve to accuse me of edit harvesting - How else could one who has never actually uploaded more than a handful (if that) of images or articles of his own reap so many edits that it becomes appropriate to post edit count milestones on their profile page?? I guess you’re still miffed that i figured out that your secret to making billions of edits was to categorize *every single image* that is uploaded on the wikia, and that i decided i would deny you some numbers by categorizing ONLY THE IMAGES I UPLOAD. Btw - I noticed a while back when you approached Caleb to inquire if you could get me blocked, and he told you that you had no grounds. Solid try, tho.
I don’t quite understand...why are edits such a big deal to you anyway? Does the one with the most edits get some fabulous cash and prices that i don’t know about?? I really don’t get give a crap about seeing a big posted number beside my name; if i could take the dang counter off my page, i would, because then there would then be no reason for me to have to deal with admin types involuntarily. Anyhoo, i kindly request that neither of you pollute my page with the ridiculous so-called edit mining or harvesting accusation/threats again because it is not against any rule to categorize images i upload and i really don’t have to place them on your 24-hr deadline. Thank you.
- On another topic: What’s with the big restrictive warning on all the episode pages re:Summaries?? We *are* aware the CW has their very own site, yes? Why does a wikia built for collaboration and new ways to present need to read exactly the same as the home site?
Reka12452 (talk) 00:24, February 3, 2018 (UTC)
It's a new guideline that we haven't codified and Thomas is a Content Moderator focused on cleaning up the colossal mess that is the images aspect of this wiki. The Speed deletion candidates still exists, but must be manually typed due to being empty. Yes, I categorize uploaded images (that no one else had), how dare I? It's almost like managing the wiki was a responsibility... Wait... It was. I categorized images to keep everything manageable. Edits aren't a big deal to me. Do I take pride in my edit count? Yes, it's proof of my work to better the wiki and I have become B-crat due to said hard work. It's also not a "big secret". Literally everyone can see those edits and make them.
You are free to categorize the images you upload, but must do so correctly and not try enforcing your own POV; while ignoring consensus, which you have tried in the past. Per consensus, we now use official releases and this allows us to reduce edit-warring or changes to the point they have stopped. You always try to make a problem someone elses fault, and never take responsibility for your mistakes; and I have been quite lenient with you. I will codify this new rule, immediately and if your photos aren't used within 24-hours, then they will be deleted and you blocked. Zane T 69 (talk) 00:45, February 3, 2018 (UTC)
I had all this typed out and then Zane posted. So if there is overlap or what not you know why.
It would have been nice if you responded when I left the first message( instead you kept uploading until an admin got involved and then responded). Next time just let me know that you are working on a large image project or something. I have thousands of images I have to go through and delete, seeing that already massive queue get longer with no explanation is irritating ( and no deletes do not count to edit count). As for the 24 hour time I was going off past warnings and blocks. The image issue is that people keep uploading images and not using them, or worse using us as an image host. All those unused files clog up the system and make maintenance harder so we can't see the ones that are using us as a image host or uploading bad photos. And no I'm not an admin which is why had Zane do the warning. I am a content moderator.
The speedy deletion is still there. And I check it every day as does Zane.
The edit thing is because some people make useless edits or clog the system up with hundreds of small edits on the same page for the only reason of getting a higher edit count. It makes it harder to do our job and keep things going well.
Now for the last point. The Summaries were decided to make official copy of the press release while the Plot would be community based. There was a lot of back and forth on talk pages and even a forum post about the lay out for the season and episode pages. The summaries were being mutilated to the point that they no longer resembled what they were meant to be. So like most rules, a new policy was put in place because a few people could not help but ruin it for everyone. --ThomasNealy (talk) 01:03, February 3, 2018 (UTC)
- Zane - what in the world are you talking about?? 1. You are not in a position to be lenient with me about anything because 2. I haven't done anything wrong. I don't know what mistakes or problems owing to me you percieve or are trying to conjure up, but just saying the words does not make them so. i make edits, the same as everyone else, and people are free to do the same; i have never started an edit war. Btw, would you say that making edits to categorize as images of Dean or Sam that only feature the back of their heads or maybe an arm is the kind of mistake you are taking about? You have really got to be kidding me with your pot-calling-the-kettle-black thing that you do. Your feined martyrdom behind your admin duties makes me laugh; seems like just like to bully people behind that guise.
- Anyway, Will You and/or Thomas Nealy Please Replace My Images so that i wont have to rename them (That'd take sooo much more time, yes?) And that word that you love - CONSENSUS - also appies to you, friend. Your "codifying" something on your own does not make it law. So, if you try block me over some arbitary 24hr rule, this willl definately go to another level. Goodnite

- ThomasNealy -just so you know - you were posting on my page while i was, so i havent read your response yet.Reka12452 (talk) 02:03, February 3, 2018 (UTC)
I restored the images. Thank you for moving them to your sandbox. It helps alot since they do not show up in the unused file log. which makes my life a lot easier thanks. --ThomasNealy (talk) 13:04, February 3, 2018 (UTC)
You tried defying rules in the past and we argued, I could have blocked you then, but didn't. I really regret not doing that now... You have consistently demonstrated that you believe you are special or exempt from certain rules; you aren't and will not receive such treatment. I literally have not mentioned edit warring in this or the warning section. First of all, it's spelled feigned, and I am not playing a martyr and have never resorted to bullying. I was told that I could introduce policy in such a matter by Caleb, and even if I didn't have such permission, it would pass with ease due to it being needed. I will also be posting again in a few minutes... Zane T 69 (talk) 15:33, February 3, 2018 (UTC)
Re:Indefinite block of Reka12452
I have responded to your request on my talk page. I would advise that you prepare a timeline / sequence of events that led up to your block, but that you describe these events in a fair and neutral way (erring in the side of fairness to Zane, so that no one can accuse your account of the situation of being biased.) In the case that a community discussion has to be started for this, you can offer this account of events and allow the community to decide if there was any error on your part. Cheers.
