Editing Questions Please

Hi Matias ~ and anyone else who is able to help. I have only edited one page before and that was something I was positive about. But, I would appreciate your validation of these two before I procede. One comment in "Iknimaya" reads that the Banshee Catcher is snapped around the eyes, temporarily blinding the animal; then following, in the notes, it elaborates that Jake's animal was not blinded like this. If Jake is the only example we have of this in the movie, should his experience be the one in the main article and not the other? The second question I have is in "Ikran Makto" and states that becoming a Ikran Makto is a rite of passage that all Omaticaya Clan members must pass to be accepted as one of the people ~ I was under the impression that only the warriors must pass this test? If you could help, please, I will appreciate it. Thank you ever so kindly and I sincerely hope that life is treating you very well ~ you absolutely deserve it. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 23:13, May 31, 2010 (UTC)


My Dear Matias ~ Ahhhh ~ have you missed me? (I thought you would be counting your blessings :-) ) Just teasing you. Thank you for your help with this ~ I will continue in that direction then. PS I really have missed you~ I hope you are ok.

R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 00:50, June 1, 2010 (UTC)


My Dear Matias ~ sick for the past couple of days? That's a bummer ~ sorry to hear that. Sometimes you need a chance to just recharge your batteries. Drink lots of fluids, eat chicken soup and gets lots of rest ~ those things work in the United States, do you think they might work in Peru also? I will be sending healing energy in your direction. Take care. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 16:47, June 1, 2010 (UTC)


My Dear Matias ~ I see you have been doing a BOATLOAD of editing today. That must mean you didn't make it back to school huh ~ how long are you going to stretch this sickness out ;-) ? My healing energy must be a little rusty, I'll polish it off and give it another try. Take care. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 18:42, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Featured Article

I know any of the other Admins can help but something needs to be updated. In the index to the left in:

  • Top Content
  • Featured Articles

It only shows Jake and Pandora. Since then we've obviously had more featured articles. I think they were Neytiri, Toruk, and then Grace in that order. Thanks. [[TECTONIUM]] 23:52, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

I simply removed it. It seems it was from times when the wiki was still young and empty and doesn't have any meaning anymore. Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 00:09, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
I thought it looked fine! It matches the category of Top Content and shows newcomers the best the wiki has to offer. [[TECTONIUM]] 17:01, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Yea Me!

My Dear Matias ~ wow, thanks so very much for finding this newsworthy item for me ~ I am pretty impressed with myself because you made it sound like a really big deal! Ok, duh, I don't have a clue what it's about?????? Help, please. A very close friend of mine used to say that "Even a blind hog roots up an acorn now and then." LOL Think I might be that hog?

You are probably feeling much better now that the weekend is here huh ;-) Take care. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 02:39, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

Pronounciation??

Just out of curiousity, how do you pronounce your username? =i==i= Draginfli the Luminescent =i==i= 00:32, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, how can I spell it here? =P Ma (not me) -ti (tee) -as (not ays) Arana and ten. God, I'm useless for this =P I hope this helps you a bit... --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 12:25, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry to butt in but I'd love to learn to use the IPA language system but I think i've been pronouncing your name wrong all along. Is it like one of these:[1]?. I got stuck trying to use the IPA with the stresses. --IWantheUltimateChange 12:59, June 7, 2010 (UTC)


Sort off. it's not Mátias, it's Matías. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 21:36, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
My Dear Matias, I couldn't stand NOT to be in on this discussion :-) A while back I asked my Spanish teacher the correct pronunciation of your name so that I would, at least, be saying it right in my own mind. She said I already had "Matias" right; but she did tell me that I was pronouncing "Arana" like it means "spider" and she laughed because she said she didn't think that is how you intended it to be.
OK, serious business now (believe it or not): you never did tell me why I am "famous" ~ because I don't understand what the "Hot Spot" is all about? I have yet to receive a bottle of champagne for being so honored.
Also, I edited the Ikran article again. The first time I changed it from all clan members to all warriors; then I remembered that, when Neytiri was telling Jake about the Ikrans, she said it was something that all hunters must do ~ so I changed it again. Don't know why I am so fascinated with this particular subject. Is school out for the summer yet? Be well Spider. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 17:31, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Hahaha thanks for thinking of me at least outside your computer =P Arana is not spider, although is very close. Araña is spider, and it sounds like Aranhia.
Well, you're "famous" because your userpage appeared in front of millions of people! Hot Spots are the articles who have more traffic, and they publish it in Wikia's main page.
Great, keep editing articles! And btw, school is not over until December, you know, the South hemisphere thingy =P I'm freezing! Be well Spider, ROFL that actually made me laugh out loud =P Thanks for writing to me. Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 02:03, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Good Afternoon My Mentor Matias ~ Thanks for explaining my "famousness" to me ~ I am suitable impressed with myself =P ( < see that, see what you've taught me?). OK, so the only difference between being you (Arana) and being SpiderMan is a little squiggle above the "n"? Hmmmmm ~ you do walk a tightrope don't you. LOL Dang, I was so embarrassed when you mentioned that Southern Hemisphere thingy ~ being a Geography major, it seems as though one of the basic premises of elementary geography somehow got lost in my overcrowded brain. I will wait for a while before I ask you what you are going to do with your time off this "summer". :-) I might try to get up the courage to start my Phoenix gallery today ~ I created the heading and then got scared to go any further. Stay tuned for success stories. Hope you are having an awesome day. Take care and be well. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 17:23, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Heh, that means I've been a good mentor =P Yeah the little squiggle is the only things that differentiates me from spiderman lol! About my "summer", don't worry, not everyonw knows we're freezing in the south while they're enjoying the beach :( What do you mean with a gallery? Something like mine? Or something like this? You know that if you're having any troubles, you can ask me ;) Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 18:05, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
OK, Mentor Matias ~ Of course I'm having troubles ~ need you even ask =P First of all, is that your new Spiderman avatar on your User Page? LOL OK, I really AM learning a few things. I checked out both galleries that you suggested and I like the scroll one the best; but the screen size isn't very large. I think I am going to just stick with the spread-out presentation for now. My questions are: (1) I ended up with so many duplicate images in "New Images" and I think you are the one that has to get rid of those, correct? When the image I uploaded didn't show up in the "My Home" review, then I uploaded it again; because if it didn't show up in that review, then it wouldn't upload to my page ~ all I got was a file name. So I would try again. I think I had my file names wrong in my own file, so I have just renamed them. I have a bunch more to upload once I get it right. (2) I would like to have nice tidy borders around the images, is that where I should have indicated a caption in the original upload? Any way to do that now? Other than pulling my hair out for HOURS and HOURS last night (I am practically bald with all of this hair-pulling-out going on), I am feeling a little more comfortable. Should I just scratch what I have done so far and start over fresh and clean??? If you think so, what would be the best way to do that? I am sooooooo very sorry ~ so very very sorry ~ to be this albatross around your neck. You should have never answered my first cry for "HELP" ~ maybe you will know better next time. But, I'm soooooo grateful that you did and I will never, ever cease to be your most humble admirer. Take care and be well. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 13:39, June 14, 2010 (UTC)


You need help? What a surprise! =P Do you like my spidey? It's a great fan work I found in DeviantART. I deleted the pics that you asked me to delete. Actually you were lucky because I deleted randomly one, and it wasn't ones that you were using in your talk page =P And what do you mean with the nice tidy borders? And just to make it clear, you want the Jake Sully gallery-like right? *Sighs* You're right, I should never answered your first post a month ago... LOL Just kidding, I'm so happy to be able to help you with this hard work (in which I never had guidance :( ), it's a pleasure! Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 22:11, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
Hey Fella, you sure are getting sassy in your old age =D Whine, whine, whine "hard work for which you never had guidance" whine, whine, whine. I'll bet your were born with a computer mouse in your hand and did your teething on the keyboard. You probably didn't have to learn any computer-speak, you just soaked it all in through osmosis. Whew, I can get just downright mean can't I? LOL Yes, your Spidey IS cute, especially appropriate now that we know he is your true alter-ego! Thank you so much for deleting my frustrations ~ are you really the only one who can do that? Sorry about that! The tidy little frames that I like are the ones that Nick has placed around his artwork ~ and I think those are for captions. Is there any way that I can somehow go back and add those to the pics I already have posted or do I need to delete everything and start over. Hey, this phoenix gallery was YOUR idea ~ and I will never let you forget that. HeHeHe! Matias, you really are special and I know that you know how much I appreciate you. Take care. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 23:39, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
Lol, that was funny to read! I'm not the only one that can delete them, other admins can, so bug them instead of me =P Just kidding. You don't have to delete everything! Hehe, you just need to add a little code, but as that will cause only more trouble... =P I added them for you. I hope that's what you wanted. Send me a message again if you want to change something or if you have a question. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 01:59, June 15, 2010 (UTC)
You have no idea that I am physically hopping up and down right this moment and dancing around the room because I am so excited ~ yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! What you did for me is PERFECTION! Exactly what I was hoping for! Actually, it turned out even better than I had hoped. And I will follow your trail in the code so I can do the same thing tooooooooo. And, yes, you do know that there will be more questions =P. Bug the other Admins? You know you'd miss me. Spidey, you are the BEST. Thank you so very much. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 02:19, June 15, 2010 (UTC)


Lol your welcome! And please don't ask the other admins, I would really miss you ;) Again, it is a pleasure to help you. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 02:33, June 15, 2010 (UTC)
WhooHoo My Dear Matias ~ WE (you and I) have a phoenix art gallery up and running ~ are we good or what???? I am very excited ~ the colors are rich and bright and brilliant. I never did ask what kind of phoenix research you were doing when you came across "our" images? None of my business, I know, but that won't keep me from asking. =P Spidey, I hope you are keeping toasty warm in that southern hemispere thingy type of climate. You should come to Texas, we will make sure you stay warm in June. LOL R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 00:18, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
Yay, our gallery! I found the pics while I was doing a science research about birds. I know a phoenix isn't real, but I still think they're cool =P Actually, I think I'll go to Texas next year to my aunt's house in July :) Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 12:01, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
"A phoenix isn't real"???????? Huh?????? Next you will be telling me there aren't dragons or fairies or trolls that live under bridges!!!!!! Texas in July???????? You'll be sorrrrrrrrrrry =( . My Mentor Matias ~ how do you separate messages on talk pages? Mine run together and yours are always neat and tidy ~ some Spidey advice please? Take care of you. Ok? R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 12:57, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, that was a typo, I meant I know that a phoenix is real, sorry about that =P Why will I be sorry? Because of the temperature? And what do you mean by sepparating massages on talk pages? If you clarify that then I'll give you the spidey-advice =P Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 20:22, June 18, 2010 (UTC)
You are the only person who can make me actually stop dead in my tracks and laugh out loud =D ~ I love it. You have such a great sense of humor ~ but I know you must hear that all the time. OK, Texas in July (depending on where you are, 90's-100's F, unrelentingly sunny and dry) as opposed to Lima in July (59-65 F, overcast, fog and mist). OK, I think I see your point ~ as much as I hate the heat, your overcast would do me in. See you next July. The Spidey advice I respectfully petition for is (1) how do you makes empty spaces between the messages and (2) how do you make a message indent from the one before? Please? Thank you, thank you. I have a surprise for you tomorrow XD. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 23:00, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
Yay, I make people laugh :D I've been in Houston a couple of times before, so I know how the climate is, but only in winter (actually, the last time I went was 2004-2005 three months to study there for a while, and it was the first time it snowed in like 20 years, so I was kinda lucky =P). Ok, here is my spidey advice: to make spaces between the messages is adding :s before what you write. As more :s you add, the more space you will make. That's what you meant, right? Well, as I had completely no idea of what indent meant, I searched for its meaning and I got destroy, bloody, macabre... I guess that's not its real meaning =P Oh wait, I got it, spaces from the margins? I think that was the previous question, so now I'm confused... What did you mean with the first question then? I love surprises :D --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 01:34, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, Spidey, we will see what this :s will do and then I will find out which question you were kind enough to inadvertently answer =P. By spaces between messages, I meant a message separated by spaces from the one above. I'm not actually sure how else to say that. OMG, what source did you use to look up "indent"? The Zombie Handbook? Just teasing. Indent, in my dictionary (The Human Handbook), says to "push in, to form a dent or impression". In this wiki format, it is used to push your text in to fall below and to the right of the text above. You brought snow to Houston????? Did they make you leave? I lived there for several years and we had hurricanes all the time but it didn't dare snow. Please don't get your hopes up about your surprise being something really neat = ( You may hate it. I didn't promise it would be a good surprise. Ok, sleep well on those words =) R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 02:25, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

For an space, just click Enter, duh! I did like the surprise, a lot! But as far as I know, I created the wiki on July 20th, not June... history confirms it. What made you think it was June instead of July? Heh, still it's great, thanks ;) I really appreciate it! You are such a great person. Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 03:49, June 20, 2010 (UTC)
There you go, getting sassy again ~ this younger generation ~ what are we going to do with them =P. I DO click "enter" and put lots of spaces between the previous post, but when I "save" it places it directly underneath. DUH yourself! LOL Danngit, I don't even care anymore ~ I have moved on to bigger and better things like cleaning up after some outrageous birthday party. Spidey, considering the source of the birthday blog, it didn't turn out too badly ~ you think? XD Ok, a word in my defense ~ if you will please go to my Talk Page, to the section "I'm Back", scroll to the 4th post down dated May 17, and look in the middle of your message ~ tah-dah. Redemption for Linda! When you originally wrote that, I made a note with the intent of creating a blog for you on June 20th. The most amazing part is that I kept it a secret for so long! Yea me! I'm glad that Faern put little winking icons by his comments or else I would have gotten my feelings hurt =( . Ok, so what plans do we have for the real birthday of the wiki ~ want me to be in charge? Just teasing =] Take care of you (and the rest of us when you have time). Peace to you my funny Spidey friend. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 13:43, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, so you click Enter and you leave many :, right? Then what is wrong????? *sighs* I will go to Texas now and tell you what are you doing wrong =P I told you that the birthday was June 20th?... Whooooooops! My bad =P Sorry about that, it was still great :D Faern always put the winking icons, but is Faern, so don't worry =P I actually don't have plans for the wiki, but Wikia is doing a contest to feature a wiki in the main page, so if we have a chance, we would be featured in our birthday :) If you want you can comment there telling why our wiki is great, I would really appreciate that :) Sooo... back to homeworks. Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 22:32, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
I'll pick you up at the airport ~ then we can get all of my questions answered at once =P I have composed a nomination for the contest; but the only question I have is, how many users do we have? I only have one word left out of the 250, so I am not sure I can work it in =). Spidey, I have really had fun at your June 20th birthday party ~ what a great, fun, group of people ~ I am truly so happy to "know" everyone. Take care. Peace. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 23:37, June 23, 2010 (UTC)
I already nominated the wiki, you can find somewhere there... among the other 500 comments =P You just need to say why the James Cameron's Avatar Wiki is great, talk about how friendly are the users, how it is helpful to get info about avatar, etc. We have around 800 users, how many active? No idea... I had so much fun as well! Thnaks, thanks, thanks! Now I'm thanking you ;) I'm also blessed to be part of such an extraordinary community :D Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 00:47, June 24, 2010 (UTC)
Yep, I read your nomination yesterday ~ very well done, very factual and very intelligent, especially compared to all of the others. Yea Spidey! I finished my nomination this afternoon (249 words), and was just curious how many users we had before I actually posted it. I will do that this evening. Never forget how awesome you are, ok? Take care of our Spidey Man. Peace. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 01:49, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, I just wanted to point out the best of the wiki (for me, it's the community). 249 words, huh? The maximum words is 250 =P If you haven't posted it yet, remember to call it the James Camerons Avatar wiki, or they will consider us as the chinese cartoon =P Thanks for calling me awesome, you're an extraordinary person as well ;) Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 02:16, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Whoo Hoo ~ this girl has done her thing! If you are still awake, check it out. If you don't like it, please don't tell me, ok? And I actually did remember the James Cameron's Avatar Wiki thingy. Ended up with 250 words because I stuck in the 800 for Users. Hey, I like the nice things we say about each other. Let's keep it up ok? R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 02:42, June 24, 2010 (UTC) XD Peace to our Spidey.
That was more than perfect :D Thanks for saying those things about the wiki! Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 02:47, June 24, 2010 (UTC)
Awwwww shucks, I'm blushing. And that doesn't happen often. =) Thanks for the nice words. This wiki deserves to have nice things said about it ~ if only I had another 1,000 words. That was actually what I started off with and had to do some serious editing ~ no joke! Sleep well my dear Spidey. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 03:00, June 24, 2010 (UTC)
I made you blush! Mission accomplished ;) Actually, you don't need to write 250 exactly, I actually wrote almost 300, so if you find that enything needs to be added, just click the edit button next to your comment. Sleep well, Linda ;) --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 03:05, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Another Question

Samsonius's talk page says that he can "Na'vitize" people if they give him a picture. Do you think that this could be mentioned on the "Welcome" template that welcomes users to the wiki? =i==i= Draginfli the Luminescent =i==i= 01:15, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

May I suggest that the perfect place for this would be the Community Corner. I believe it can only be edited by admins; if it is, one can leave a suggestion here. --IWantheUltimateChange 12:09, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
I agree that the right place would be the community corner. We could also add that you make signatures (if you're still doing them). If you agree, I'll add it right away ;) --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 12:27, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Oh yes, of course. I still love making sigs, but no one wants them anymore. =i==i= Draginfli the Luminescent =i==i= 13:20, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Draginfli, could you please first ask Samsonius if he is ok with advertizing his work in the Community Corner? Thanks! --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 23:40, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
He says he's fine with it. Actually, he says it's an honor. =] =i==i= Draginfli the Luminescent =i==i= 15:58, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, I have added it to the Community Corner ;) --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 01:58, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Weekly featured quote

G'day Matias, I was on the main page and I noticed that the weekly featured quote is incorrect. It reads: "Jake...I'm with her...she's real", but if I remember correctly it's actually "I'm with her Jake...she's real." I couldn't find any way to edit it (I'm pitifully bad with computers...), so I was wondering if you could please change it. Thanks, Ozzyjalo94 09:27, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll change it right now. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 12:28, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
If you find another quote discrepancy you could probably use the quote discussion page (note that no one has actually written on the page (so it really doesn't exist yet)). --IWantheUltimateChange 12:35, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Concept Art Gallery

Hei, just a question, what would you think about Concept art Gallery, with pictures of early Na'vi designs. --KillerZ 17:38, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

Only if you can name a source for every single picture. Otherwise, it could just be fan art or from something totally different. ;) Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 18:35, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
You sure those are legit?JCameronFan123 17:19, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
Some were not, I moved them to wait for deletion. --KillerZ 09:23, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Hello

Hi You may of noticed my admin Reqeust and to prove im good most of your admins have not got your template , info box navi


i have check it out see my comitment

I'm sorry, but you're not eligible to be an admin. You have to make a lot of significant edits to the wiki, stay in the IRC and be experienced with in the wiki. I recommend you to keep editing and imrpove your work. Cheers, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 01:56, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

community corner

G'day Matias (again), sorry to bother you (again), but in the Community Corner it says that Draginfli makes "costume signatures". lol, do sigs have clothes now? Ozzyjalo94 09:35, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Hehe sorry about that, it has been changed. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 01:56, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Hello

Hello, I'm Trikster87, i appear and create many wikis and ill join this one. I really love Avatar! I do hope to be an admin but if i do any major edits, please email me and tell me what you think of them! --Trikster87 20:45, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Trikster, thanks for consider joining this wiki, it would be great to have you around! You are right, to become an admin you have to make many significant edits, but it seems that you have done only 1, so that wouldn't count... Please keep editing and we'll see. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 20:22, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Munincipal Creamatorium

Why did'nt you put something on my talk page to tell me that u used my picture of the Cremation oven? At least inform me. Yes, I'm mad about this. --Jetfire606 20:43, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Every file you upload to this wiki is assumed to be licensed under the CC-by-SA if not denoted otherwise and may be used without anyone's consent. If you don't agree on this, you should not upload your images here. You may also refer to Wikia:Licensing for details. It is linked on the bottom of every page on Wikia. Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 21:39, June 18, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, what Faern said is right, I don't have to tell the user that uploaded an image if I can use it, then it would be almost impossible to use pictures. And, what's the problem of using your pic, anyways? --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 22:13, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

"o" or "ou"

G'day Matias, I have a question about the spelling preferences on wikis. Being Australian, I spell, for example, armour the British way, with an "ou", but when I type it this way the red line telling me it is incorrect appears. My question is: is there any preference when it comes to American English and British English on this wiki? If so, which one is preferred? (I'm a bit pedantic, and this question has been bugging me for a while) Ozzyjalo94 09:33, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

It pains me to say it but yes its American English. i.e. armor instead of Armour. This is probably because most of the internet is dominated by American spellings. Apparently it all comes down to the Americans wanting to get back at the British so they changed quite a few words from the technically 'right' form to their one. Hope this answers your question (sorry, couldn't resist answering it Matias). :( --IWantheUltimateChange 11:10, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with UC, but my favorite (favourite =P) way to spell it is "armour." I still use "armor," though. =S =i==i= Draginfli the Luminescent =i==i= 15:05, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks UC, it is a shame isn't it...

Cool sig, Draginfli. Ozzyjalo94 02:52, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Clearing

What I meant was that the word skxwang means moron so why would you call that your username. I think that I'll just stay off the wiki for a couple of months to avoid misunderstandings and stuff. And just browse pages. That sounds good enough to me

Hi Matias. Avatar Wiki looks great (still) and I have added it to the spotlight list. I'm sorry about the delay in responding to your request. -- Wendy (talk) 04:41, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

Feature Daily Image

Hello, Matias, the featured daily image has been off for they day. Just wondering if your still running it for now. --IWantheUltimateChange 09:10, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

I already pointed it out in IRC yesterday, but noone reacted. Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 13:47, June 26, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, we are still running it. Faern pointed it out yesterday, but I didn't have time to do it, I'll probably do it today. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 14:24, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

Itz Me ~ Help Please

WoW ~ that is one big Spidey at the top of your page! Are you trying to scare people away? It didn't work =P My Dear Matias, just when I think I have some stuff figured out, the stuff stops cooperating. I was trying to upload several images to my User Page and the first two behaved perfectly. The second two refused. And I tried, I really tried, to figure out what I'm NOT doing. When you have time ~ no rush ~ just in the next five minutes or so (just teasing), will you please go to MY Home, My Contributions, there are two files there that ended up uploaded (one twice), but they are not showing up on Activity Feed and, therefore, aren't available to plug into my User Page. The two files are AvatarWorthFightingFor and AvatarYoureFreeToChoose. What the heck am I doing, or not doing????? Danggit, I am SO sorry to bother you for this; but you know how grateful I ALWAYS am =) I am just about ready to leave to go to my friend's house to watch IB ~ full report tomorrow. It better hadn't scare me or I'll be banging on your door in the middle of the night. Take care My Spidey Friend. Peace. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 22:59, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Hehe, Samsonius did an amazing job creating that banner, and I was trying to scare you away, so I wouldn't have to help you again. Heh, you know I'm teasing you =P Well, as I'm not a mind reader... I added the pics in the Phoenix "Gakkery" =P The "L" and "K" are dangerously close. You know you can bother me all the times you want, and if I don't, it's because I'm dead ;) IB is not scary, but violent, very violent. So if you don't like dead nazi's, then I think I will wait for you tonight... Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 01:01, June 28, 2010 (UTC)
I figured that I WAS the target on the scaring away tactic. HaHa Better luck next time. Matias, thank you AGAIN. so very much for your help. You always come to my rescue. My hero. =) Were you able to figure out why I couldn't get the files to upload into Activity Feed ~ I felt that I was doing exactly the same thing that I was doing for the ones that uploaded ok. Whine, Whine, Whine. It has happened like that before and I don't want it to happen again. Whine, Whine. I have already posted my movie review tonight and I sincerely appreciate your offer to wait up for me; but, I covered my eyes on all of the yukky scenes and didn't get scared. Hope you're having sweet dreams tonight. Take care. Peace. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 06:37, June 28, 2010 (UTC)
Well, maybe it was the system that was slow, as I can't find another reason. I liked your review, the movie was indeed brilliant. The performance of Christoph Waltz was more than brilliant. I still don't get why you love whine so much... =P Take care, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 14:37, June 28, 2010 (UTC)
Hmmmmm ~ I thought I was the only system that was slow. Whine? Because it goes so well with cheese and crackers ~ that is where you were going with that wasn't it? XD Thanks again my Spidey for all of your help. Be sure and recharge your emotional battery for my next crisis. You're not laughing are you? Take good care. Peace. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 17:43, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

You're Welcome

Just thought I would say you're welcome for the banner, since you posted a thank you on my page. Take care, and if you need anything altered, just leave me a message or get at me in the IRC. See ya! Samsonius 23:05, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Hey Matias, since you requested a logo for the wiki, I made it and you can find it here. However, Ozzy and I concluded that I think it would be a good idea, since most people are fine with the current logo, if someone were to make a blog about it and offer up suggestions of what to add or what to change about this new logo, and then they could vote in a later blog for whichever logo they prefer. I'd prefer it if you would make this blog, since I don't want to look like I'm overstepping my bounds by suggesting a new logo design. Just be sure to mention me as the creator and it'll be fine. If you don't want to, I completely understand. Thanks! Samsonius 02:21, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

That's great! I also agree to create a blog, so the community can decide. If you could ask one of the admins or you to do it today, or just wait until I do it tomorrow, as I'm bussy now and I have to leave. You decide. Again, thanks, I think that is a great logo that stands out better than the current one, and it also looks great in a white background. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 03:23, June 30, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I created a nice little blog entry. Samsonius 04:15, June 30, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, and great blog. Btw, I never said I preferred the current logo... I think I like the new one even better, but we will see what the community decides. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 11:43, June 30, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, sorry. I thought I heard you say that you liked the current logo. Anyways, I was thinking, since this logo will be the permanent logo, that maybe we could advertise the voting blog (when I make it) on the front page, since we probably want as many people to vote on it as possible in order to really get the true voice if the community. Samsonius 21:59, June 30, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I think the current logo is great, but yours is better. I will advertise the logo voting in the main page, and as Wikia is giving us an spotlight, maybe we can get more votes. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 22:44, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

monaco sidebar

Hi. I just started my new wiki (www.operation-stratos.wikia.com) and I don't well..... You don't need to know about that but when you started the Avatar wiki, how did you make the little boxes filled with different categories and the menu sidebar? I was just wondering, because I'm lost and don't know what to do. I See You.

--Jetfire606 14:48, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

Well, I see some boxes there, so I think you figured it out. If you want to check our sidebar, go here. If you want to check yours... here. Only an admin can edit it, so I just can help you from here. If you have any other question, just ask me ;) --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 22:22, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

Re: New Policies

They're great! You got the basics down, the details down, and I agree with them. You got them perfectly professional, too. With these policies, it helps make the Wiki higher in quality, standards, and professionalism. I'm a grammar nut, so I like to check the articles and other things for grammar, and I didn't find anything wrong with the policies! =] =i==i= Draginfli the Luminescent =i==i= 04:17, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

I only have 1 issue and that is the blocking policy. It says 1 offense of inserting nonsense to anons is a warning. I feel that if you are inserting crap into our wiki, you should be banned, end of discussion. If you are doing that crap then there is a 99% chance you have nothing to contribute to the wiki. I'm not saying change it, but personally if I'm the one catching you, I give no warnings. JayBo The Mindtaker Talk 07:38, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with Jay. In my opinion if someone makes an edit like this there's no need for warnings, just instant 3 month ban as there's a very small probability that those users will ever contribute in a way that benefits us.
Other than that it seems fine by me and clarifies a lot of things around here. --LuckyMan 08:05, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, obviously an edit like that would be an instant banning, but in my opinion just 2 weeks, as I don't think they will do it again, or maybe they will just never return. But if they are edits like "Jake dies at the end of the movie", that's just a warning. Thanks for your opinions ;) --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 12:19, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
I like the policies as well. They are clear, well written, and could have prevented (or not) some problems we have had over the past few months. I do agree with JayBo and LuckyMan that some vandals need a longer ban and don't necessarily require a warning. Something you might want to think about is adding a rider to the policy, something like "Administrators of this wiki will apply the following blocking policy, however we reserve the right to alter the severity of the block based on the level and type of vandalism." As written, a vandal could argue that if you block him after his first vandalism, you are violating your own policy. Just my two cents. Skxwang 13:07, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
IPs cannot be warned because there is no way to contact them (edit summary is in most cases the wrong place). Also, there is no point in banning IPs for longer periods of time. Many ISPs give you dynamic IPs that change every now and then or at every reconnect to the internet. If another person happens to get an IP that is banned here, the user is unable to contribute. That's why I would never ban an IP longer than 1 month, except a single IP vandalizes for a longer period of time, making it obvious that the IP is static.
If you want to push that "use images only to illustrate articles and don't upload screenshots to only use them on your user page" policy through, then we will have to delete all galleries and most images in there and scan some hundred user pages...
I would add that unused images are subject for deletion at any time. The wiki is no image hosting site. Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 15:29, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with Skwang and and Faern about the vandals. About the images, I think Matias meant that don't upload an image if you only want it on your userpage, and if you don't want anyone else to use it. Like what Jetfire606 said when Matias used one of his uploaded images: he didn't want Matias to use it in an article. I think that's what Matias is trying to say. Correct me if I'm wrong. =i==i= Draginfli the Luminescent =i==i= 16:50, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
I was more referring to the two sentences in the copyright section. Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 17:43, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
So I just get back from camping for the fourth of July, and now I have to read stuff? Just kidding! These policies are very well written, they're very clear in the kind of ideals that you want to be projected on the wiki, and I think they might deter anons from making worthless edits. Excellent job on that bit. However, I think we should enforce more of a zero-tolerance policy rather than introducing a warning system. Maybe not a 3 month ban, but more like a month, and then the second time the same anon makes a useless edit, it's a ban for 1 year. This also might tie in with your badge idea that we were discussing in the IRC, where if an anon makes a worthless edit, gets banned, and then comes back and make 5 useful contributions, you could give a badge out for that. Although, that might lead to people making worthless edits just so they can get a badge later on. I dunno, glad it's not my job to think of these things. :P Samsonius 18:20, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
Nope, I'm definitely against any kind of reward. The wiki is not an MMORPG where you get points for everything. If people want to contribute, they will, if not we won't suffer any loss. Also it is impossible to do so with IPs for the above reasons. Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 19:04, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
Good policies from what I've read, just one or two things I wanted to talk to you about the policies if your on the IRC tomorrow (tomorrow for me that is). --IWantheUltimateChange 08:02, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Badges

I still have some questions, and I was told to come here to ask them: 1.) Who created the other 10% of the badges? 2.) Will there be more badges created then the ones currently in effect?Jhayk' Sulliy 03:14, July 7, 2010 (UTC

Since Matias isn't here right now, I suppose I'll answer your questions. Well, Matias technically named the other 10% of badges, even though I told him the names to use because I wasn't an admin yet, and consequently couldn't view the badge editing page. Once I have the badge request page up, you can post requests for any kind of badges that you can think of. Hope this helps clear some things up!Samsonius 03:21, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

New admin

So what do the other admins think about the quick shot of matias to promote Samsonius to an admin without discussing it with the other admins first? I don't think he is a bad choice or anything, so that is not the point, but we already have 5 admins (2 less active atm) and I don't think there was a need for another. If we had, there are also other possible candidates to take into consideration. Because admin status is also a matter of trust, I think it's worth to discuss such things first and at least half of all admins should agree to a promotion, no exceptions. Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 11:09, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Well, Ultimate was yesterday in the IRC, and he was fine with the idea, Lucky wasn't around, Jaybo is playing Wow, you didn't exactly have an opinion, I agree, Skxwang (rollback) agrees, and it appears that several other users do too. Samsonius did a lot for the wiki that deserve an administration, maybe more than other admins did. He created the banner requests, the images requests, the na'vitization, he dezigned the badges, he is really active, he is always in the IRC, and I think everyone in the IRC tsustes him. Anyways, this is not official, I told him it was a test, and if it didn't work, he would be a rollback again, so the other admins can still give their opinions about his promotion. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 11:46, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
I did not say I have no opinion. If you promote someone and ask afterwards, if people are fine with it, you don't grant them real free choice. That is as if your head of state would put some people he likes into your parliament and asks you afterwards with a gun on your breast if you are fine with it. This has nothing to do with Samsonius. He deserves it, but for example Skxwang does too. I always thought we would keep this kind of stuff in a somewhat democratic way which means discussion and election BEFORE making a decision. Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 13:37, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
Matias asked me what I thought on the IRC. While I am not an Admin, I do think it is well deserved. Samsonius does a lot for the wiki and has shown good judgment when it comes to edits and other additions to the wiki. He is already a rollback and a hard worker. Skxwang 12:29, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
Like I said, I am not talking about if he deserved it or not, but about arbitrary decision making. Faern. 3D-HD-Pics 13:37, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
Hang on, hang on. I said I was fine with the idea? I do not recall unless it was a misjudged response or I had a mind blank. I would have no qualms about the promotion after discussion which is always great and a useful tool (as stated in the Discussion policy). I just don't recall saying or hearing anything about a possible promotion up until now. As the Kenyan's say: “Having a good discussion is like having riches”. --IWantheUltimateChange 15:10, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with the discussion part. Every admin should be made aware of these things (within a range of reason of course, if an admin hasn't been online for quite some time), there shouldn't be that much of a hurry to promote people that we all can't be contacted =P. And I'm not going against Samsonius' promotion either. I just value discussion as much as Faern and Ultimate. --LuckyMan 15:37, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, I admit that I should have asked the other admins first, I do recognize that. I created the policies and broke them two days aftre that. Soooo... nobody seems to be against Sean's promotion. Let's forget the "arbitrary decision", we don't want an edit war. The important thing here is the adminship of Sean. I agree and Lucky agrees. We just need Faern's vote, Jaybo's vote, and Ultimate's vote. And Ultimate, I though you agreed because you didn't said anything about it last nast in the IRC, so I'm sorry if there was a confussion. Ultimate and Faern, do you agree or disagree about Sean's promotion? I'll leave a message to Jaybo because he probably won't see this conversation. --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 20:23, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Comment System: EPIC

This could be really big for the Wiki. I was cruising around and landed on The Last Airbender Wiki and found a really cool feature: you could put comments on pages. I don't know if you have seen this or even considered it, but I think it would make a really good addition to the Wiki, if put to good use. It could allow easy communication between users about specific issues about pages, freeing up space on talk pages and preventing edit wars, as it seems better to list your reasons on a comment instead of listing it on the edit summary. Also, it could allow users to add small imput and opinions about the page or the subject, instead of taking up space in the talk page *cough*Neytiri's Talk Page*cough*. Please consider it, and let me and the public know if it will be available ASAP. [TECTONIUM] 03:18, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I've seen that in many wikis, but I think they lead to dumber edits, and their comments are really awful, like I luv Neytiri, she's so hot. I just don't see the point. Anyways, we'll implement it if the community likes it. Therefore, I'll create a blog telling the wiki the good and bad things about the article comments, and if they like it, i'll go ahead and implement it to the wiki. Sounds fine? --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 03:24, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

She's Back

My Dear Matias, My Mentor, Mi Amigo, My Caretaker, My Keeper ~ you couldn't let a sleeping dog lie, could you =P You had to summon me back from parts unknown with your sweet talk ~ see how easy I am ~ anything for you Spidey. I can't really explain my whereabouts lately except that everything on the wiki slowed down to a snails pace a week or so ago and I thought I could snooze for a while. I returned a few days ago and this place has turned into a three-ring circus. What the hell have you folks been smoking? Seriously, you must be out of school for a while, or bored, or something???? LOL You asked my opinion on the badges ~ I am probably the world's least competitive person, so the badges don't inspire me, personally, to step out of my comfort zone; but OMG, the response you have received from everyone else has been incredible! Actually, it is almost overwhelming to try and keep up with it all. There are users contributing edits, etc. whose names I have never seen before. That was an extremely brilliant idea you had. Matias, you are always in motion, never static where our wiki is concerned; you give us everything you have on everything you do, all the time ~ and you have gathered such of a talented, dedicated, professional group of Admins and Rollbacks to oversee everything. Samsonius is a truly amazing person, a genuine workhorse and his promotion was SO deserved! Now that I have said all of this nice stuff, you did notice that you and I had absolutely NO influence when it came to convincing people to vote for the Greeny Wiki Logo ~ I'm sure it must have been you that drug our credibility down to zero.XD Shhhhhhhh, but wouldn't the planet look great with GREEN lettering ~ did I say that out loud? You miss having to help me? Did YOU really say that out loud? =P I thought for sure you be doing some kind of victory dance. Once I FINALLY learned how to upload and download images, I became Queen of the WIKI World. All of you went crazy, absolute berzerkers, trying to lead me through that (c'mon, you can admit it now). I wore us all out!! Whew! And, yet, you kept offering more help. Hmmmmm, I don't know about you Peruvians. I will have to think what my next biggest challenge is and then start knocking on your door again. =D Thanks for your "congratulations" for my 500 edits ~ I appreciate your taking the time to acknowledge that ~ even though most of those edits were on your Talk Page, asking for help. =) Ok, you asked for me and you got me and what are you going to do with me now? I await your instructions. Please take care of your very special Spidey self. Peace. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 05:27, July 9, 2010 (UTC)



Knock Knock? Anyone home? Yoo Hoo My Dear Mentor Matias? Are you there? I need help please =( There, are you happy now? Do you feel needed once again? Please stop reading all of that terrible fanfic and pay attention to ME, ok? Whoops, I should get courtesies out of the way first: how are you? have you been having a good day so far? has this been a fun weekend for you? is school going well? OK, back to ME! My Dear Caretaker, Keeper, ever since your lovely badge system was established, it has totally screwed up my User Page and we can't have that now, can we? "Your" badge stuff is laying on top of "our" phoenix banner and it has squished every single word of the text on my entire User Page over to the left hand side of the page. EEEEEK! Since you are the ultimate Geek (that isn't a bad word is it? Seriously?), I know that this will be a minor "fix" and if you will please explain in GREAT detail how I should ATTEMPT to make it right again, I will forgive you for all of your past trespasses. (Only the ones against me.) As always, I am your humble servant ~ at least until we resolve my problem. WOW ~ I am having way too much fun today aren't I ~ it must have been that new badge I just earned ~ actually, I'm sure you do realize that you bring out the absolute worst in me. XD Spidey, I sincerely will appreciate your assistance in restoring the original beauty of my User Page. You are the Best!!!!!!!! Take care. Peace.

Mi Amigo ~ of course I finally needed help! I'm getting better; but I'm not that good! Yet! You know that I will always come back, crawling on my belly, groveling and begging for your help =P It isn't that I don't like the badges ~ they just messed up my User Page and we can't have that. I followed your instructions ~ to the letter I might add ~ and now that the badges are gone, I kind of miss them =( ; but I am thinking that I can unclick that box just for a minute to see where I stand. You say that Spain won the World Cup? The World Cup of What? Just teasing you, I know it was ping pong. Call me if you need me and, as always, thank you again for your help. Take careful care of you.

My Dear Spidey Friend ~ there is just never an end to my needs! I am a pretty high maintenance Phoenix aren't I =P OK, after you read this request, you may want to run away and never look back. Or, you may look at this as the most amazing opportunity of your lifetime. I have had some conversation with Willofeywa about our "upcoming" Con (how is that for confidence). If you will go to the last comment on his Talk Page, you will see that he has already given this some considerable thought. (And his email address for future conversations.) Samsonius has indicated that he is also willing to help with planning our big event. My dear, sweet Matias, I think you would be a most awesome person to be in on this planning committee. You have Avatar resources and contacts, both offline and online, and you would be a great asset to help get this off of the ground and going. Please say that you would like to do this with us? Pretty please? Please take note that I am crawling on my belly and groveling. This is my email address and if you want to be one of us, you can email me with your address for future conversations. lindabsmith1@sbcglobal.net Not trying to push you into anything (I lie); but I truly do think that this Con has tremendous possibilities. And will be soooooo much fun to be in on from the beginning. And there will be lots of opportunities for lots of help from all of our extremely awesome wiki people. Peace to Mi Amigo.

OK, seriously, you asked for my opinon on this: I wouldn't ask them until we are a lot further down the road when you will have specific information as to what, when, where, why, and who. And, seriously, seriously, they don't know you have created this wiki????? Matias, nooooooooo ~ I promise you, they would be the proudest parents in the world to see what you have done ~ this is an amazing accomplishment. Besides, when it gets close to Con time, it would be an even more convincing "persuasion" to tell them that you are an honored guest at the Con because of the contributions your wiki has made to the fan-based success of Avatar. Tah-dah!

More seriousness: thank you very, very, very much for your offer of help ~ you will be an important part of this planning committee and will contribute a great deal to the enormous success of the first Avatar Con. I'll let you know once we start emailing, so you can send one of us your email and be copied on everything that is going on.

You really don't want me to stop, do you? I knew you were just teasing. Think how bored you would be. LOL It is my purpose in your life to make sure you have some variety. Have sweet Spidey dreams tonight. You are awesome. Peace. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 03:50, July 18, 2010 (UTC)


Puppy face? Well, yeah. How did you know that??? It appears that you are a pushover for a puppy face! heeheehee Peace. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 13:35, July 18, 2010 (UTC)


Puppy face calling Spidey ~ yoo hoo, are you there? OK, Samsonius and Willo and I are now in contact via email and would love for you to join us. I am pretty sure you can get a free hotmail or gmail account if you want. I know you already have a zillion irons in the fire; but we do too. By getting started on this early, we can take our time and do it well. So, please open up an email account and join us, ok? Let me put it this way, if you don't, I'll tell your parents about JC Avatar wiki ~ and if that doesn't work, I'll throw in the Inception wiki. Now you know just how low I'll go to get what I want. You! This will be an exciting adventure, I promise! No Peace for you tonight. =P Linda R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 22:00, July 18, 2010 (UTC)


Puppy face reporting back to Spidey. Good grief, you have me trained like Pavlov's dog ~ the second I open one of your emails. I start laughing. Much better than drooling, I guess? And, I see you respond well to threats. =P I will remember that when needed. heehee Emails are on their way. Take good care of my funniest friend (that's you). Peace.

4,000 + edits

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE AMAZING! YOU ARE EVERYWHERE!

Matias, 4,000+ edits represents a LOT of your own time, blood, sweat, tears and laughter given to make our wiki what it is today. Thank you. Sincerely. R Ghaziya, Phoenix Rising R 19:58, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

Stub or Article Stub?

G'day Matias, I have another question; what's the difference between the categories "Stub" and "Article Stub", and what are the rules and criteria that dictate which stub category the smaller articles and pages go into? Ozzyjalo94 00:13, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

G'night (or however you say it =P); the difference between the categories "Stub" and "Article Stub" are none. So in the IRC we decided to keep the "Stub" category and move the Article Stubs to the mentioned category. There are not exactly rules and criteria, just articles with very little information, mostly one line long. I hope this helps, --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 00:29, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Warning

Matias, I left a warning on Hyperknight's talk page. He added an incorrect picture to a series of pages, then undid the addition. Skxwang 12:53, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

I thought that I'd give you some credit for being #1 on this wiki congratulations

Thanks ;) --((((Matias)))) ~ Talk IRC 12:28, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

How'd you obtain the AVTR.com pics? I mean, I'm not bugging you, but yeah. I'm just pretty bored. And I was just wondering. I mean, if you're busy, I get it. But....yeah. Bye.
