A Series of Unfortunate Events

Just out of curiousity, last year I saw an article about a character in the series. I now forgotten the article but I do remember a few things what the article contained.
1) The character was male.
2) The picture was of a young man
3) He had a sister
4) He was not evil
5) He was not a member of the VFD
6) The picture showed a haircut much like Sanji

Do you have any idea who it is?

'Vandalism' regarding Randall Flagg

According to Wikipedia, vandalism is 'any addition, deletion, or change to content made in a deliberate attempt to reduce the quality of the encyclopedia'.

Upon noticing that all but one of his other appearences (the RF in Hearts) were speculations, I changed the sentence from "as well as cameo or hinted roles in other stories" to "as well as speculated cameos or hinted roles in other stories"

You, a user who hasn't contributed to this article for at least 500 edits, reverted and says it was vandalism.

Please explain.--CyberGhostface 03:32, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Software glitch. When I visited Randall Flagg, the article appeared as a completely blank page with the standard notice present for articles that don't exist, like fooooble (though it was still bluelinked, as was the "article" tab) and the history said that your edit had removed all the text from the article, so, in lieu of any reasoning I could see for its being deleted, I reverted it. I apologize for the hasty revert and especially for the presumptive message, as if I'd taken another minute to examine the circumstances surrounding the blanking, I'd have immediately been reminded that you're a major contributor to the article and would have no reason for "vandalism"—and in the time it would have taken to check up on the circumstances more carefully, the glitch might have fixed itself. Very sorry. -Silence 03:51, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Wikiproject Horror/Collaboration of the month

Hi! I noticed your name on the Wikipedia:WikiProject Horror membership list and am writing to all members who have not voted for the Collaboration of the month. Today is the designated selection day to choose the collaboration, but we currently have a tie between the two articles receiving the most votes, John Carpenter and Dario Argento. I am hoping to remedy this by drumming up a few more votes. Note that by voting for any nominated article (not limited to these two) you are indicating your "commitment to support and aid in collaborating on that specific article if it is chosen," so please feel absolutely free to ignore this message if for any reason you don't wish or would not be able to participate.--Fuhghettaboutit 22:46, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

The Devils Rejects Bios

Yes, sorry about that. I didnt realize it was entirely the same. I was trying to reword it from a biography that had come with these official figurines from 'The Devil's Rejects'. I guess, I didnt change them enough and this was the only bio I could find of them because I cant get onto the official website due to age restrictions. So, I changed the baby bio and I think its ok, but just to be sure:

Baby, was born September 12, 1948 in the rural community of Rugsville County. She was born as Vera-Ellen Firefly to parents Mother Firefly and Captain Spaulding.

As a child Vera-Ellen showed signs of manic behavior psychosis when at the age of seven she stabbed another school mate in the eye with a home-made knife. Around this time, Otis B. Driftwood, a violent criminal roamed into Ruggsville County. Otis had formed a deep bond with his new adopted family, the Fireflys', and especially taking a liking with Vera-Ellen. Otis then nicknamed his new sister "Angel Baby".

Beginning sometime in the 1970's Angel Baby and Otis becan a spree of murders across the country. All of which was documented in a series of diaries and scrapbooks that they kept. Later, in the winter of 1976, Baby returned to Rugsville alone and resumed her life on the Firefly farm. Lindsey8417

Image Tagging for Image:Goosebumps icon.gif


I've converted this image you uploaded to PNG format (here is the PNG version), and have been scolded by OrphanBot for not specifying source information. Since you uploaded the original image, could you please provide this info?

Thanks in advance, --Fibonacci 22:11, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

I added a source to the picture.--CyberGhostface 22:24, 24 June 2006 (UTC)
Thank you! --Fibonacci 22:26, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

Angels and Demons category

I suggested on the Books Portal that we create articles for all the characters for the book just like The Da Vinci Code. Any way to spread the word? --SGCommand (talkcontribs) 10:48, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

ASUE infobox

All the info in the box is coded into every page. Please leave as it stands.Alan 23:14, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

I've submitted this issue for mediation, as I really think that the content adds value to the pages.Alan 23:14, 6 July 2006 (UTC)


What the actors say is one thing, but what they say in the actual film is another. He's obviously mentally disturbed and probably has some form of mental handicap, but, not only is it unclear as to what handicap he has but saying "mentally retarded" is not an acceptable medical term. Bignole

Yes that is probably a more accurate term, at the moment (seeing as "The Beginning" will be out soon and they will hopefully put some rest as to what is wrong with him). I don't mean to be an ass about it, but it can't be said if his condition is a result of an actual mental development problem or if it was something that was more physical and emotional abuse, because of his physical deformity, that caused him to regress to a child-like state. Chances are that it is Autism, since there is an obviously lack of language development, but his awareness of rules and obedience to his family would suggest otherwise. Bignole
Those are fan sites. Fans dubbing the masks a name is one thing, but they cannot try and interpret what each means when he is wearing it. If you can find an article where any of the directors, writers or actors (that portrayed him) discuss his signature masks then that's fine, because they are the only ones that can give an insight into why he wears the different masks. Otherwise it's POV. Bignole 19:50, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
That's fine. But, you paraphrased one site and then used the Hansen interview as the cite, which isn't correct. Hansen didn't mention the killing mask, and his descriptions were slightly different. I inserted him as a direct quote, and added the other site back to cite the source for the title "killing mask". Bignole


Thanks! - Hollis1138 14:11, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Speculated Appearences for Flagg

Try finding sources first, then delete things if nothing comes up. Again, I advise checking books about King's work. -- LGagnon 20:19, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

No personal attacks

You shouldnt call anyone an "illitarate moron" (Neo pet on Saw 3 history page) even if they are one. This is a warning. Please be more pleasent to your fellow Wikipedian. Thank you for your contributions to wikipedia.--TheNation 01:00, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

p.s- On a side note, you spelt his user name wrong (there is a space), making a spelling mistake yourself. If your going to insult someone on something they did wrong, its better if you dont make the same mistake. Just giving you a heads up for the future. Again, thank you for your time, and remember, please be pleasent to other wikipedians, Thank you.--TheNation 01:00, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

  • I'm sorry, I thought you already had reprimanded her, but if you start insulting people, it only makes you as good as the vandals, you need to be better than them, and if Saw 3 is always getting vandalized, then request protection on the page.--TheNation 15:57, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
  • I'm the one who should be sorry, I would have done the same thing in your case. Keep up the good work.--TheNation 16:24, 3 August 2006 (UTC)


My sincere apologies for blocking you. I had thought you were not including the mandatory detailed fair-use rationale but in fact, I was blind. Thank you for pointing out my mistake and I am sorry for the problems this caused you. --Yamla 17:48, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Flagg image

Unfortunately, policy trumps consensus every time. If you wish, you could re-upload it and post an inquiry at Wikipedia:Fair use review to have some more input. howcheng {chat} 23:57, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

I was going to tell you to not reupload media deleted through our deletion process. If necessary, link to it offsite to discuss it. Jkelly 22:25, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
Next time get freely reusable licensing before uploading the image. Jkelly 23:36, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

BMB page

BMB and Brian Michael Bendis point to the same page. We need to make the BMB page a disambiguation page.

Do you agree?

And if you are more experienced maybe you can tell me why trying to modify the BMB page send me to the Brian_Michael_Bendis page?? BogieD 16:12, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

New userboxes ...

Please don't go creating any new userboxes in template space, but especially not divisive or inflammatory ones. We take free content very seriously at a Foundation level and your preference of fair use over GFDL content is not really appreciate here. --Cyde Weys 13:47, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

New userboxes

I have deleted a userbox template you recently created, as userboxes should no longer be created in templatespace per the terms of the German userbox solution. Here is the userbox code so that you can recreate the userbox in your userspace ("userfying") if you wish.

<div style="float:left; border:1px solid #111; margin:1px;">

Fair use rationale for Image:Estella.JPG

Thanks for uploading Image:Estella.JPG. The image description page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

It's obvious that you and I have totally different opinions of this film. But regardless of how we feel, many of the things in your edits were very biased against the film, and I tried to counter-balance that with a positive review from critic Joe Bob Briggs, whom I consider somewhat of an authority on horror films.

You say the majority of horror fans consider it the worst in the franchise, but I've personally experienced that the 2003 remake of the first film was the most hated amongst the franchise's fans. It's fine to say that alot of people hate TCM: Next Gen, but on the same token it also should be pointed out that many people also love this movie.

And I moved the "This film has a poor reputation..." paragraph to the Interesting Facts section because it really doesn't fit in too well at the beginning of the article. --CJ 05:58, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Ultimate character boxes

I removed the character box for Ultimate Gwen Stacy. The reason being that if the Ultimate versions get them, why not every other version? (What If versions, Exiles, Age of Apocalypse, Powerless, House of M, Earth X, etc...) And then it just gets cluttered. There isn't that huge a difference, except that Bendis and Bagley had a hand in recreating her, and the issue when she first appeared. There was a short discussion on the subject here... which you're welcome to join if you feel differently on the subject -HKMarks 14:50, 29 August 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for protecting the page. I really appreciate it.--CyberGhostface 21:49, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
