One day somebody lame is going to visit your user page and simply remove your image of V, because it is copyrighted, and then you will be sad. Fair use doesn't extend to user and talk pages I'm afraid. ;( Just a heads up. - Phorque 09:05, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

List of Neon Genesis Evangelion episodes[edit]

Hi. Please see Talk:List of Neon Genesis Evangelion episodes --GunnarRene 21:01, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Let me know when you've restarted on the List. My figurative pen of editing goodness is ready and waiting.--Gatotsu91112 April 2007
A matter of days. Of course, I just started the episode guide because no one HAD already; besides, the "heavy hitters" (episodes bearing the most analysis) are ironically the last 8 or so episodes in which the production was actually rushed. I don't speak any Japanese, and I literally started watching Evangelion when it reran on Adult Swim six months ago (though now I openly lament that I was not watching it when *I* was 14 some 7 years ago...). At any rate, "Rebuild of Evangelion" comes out in September 2007; even if the Live Action Eva Trilogy (Frankly I would prefer a Tetrology) is stalled at the moment, Rebuild will give it a shot in the arm. Okay, I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan, it's why I went onto "the Internet" in the first place and I can tell you now: Evangelion now looks to be the "next big thing" "next Star Wars/LOTR/Matrix", and the current state of Eva I equate with Lord of the Rings in 1998-99---->After a 10 year furlough from the "original" (over 40 years in LOTR's case) they're going to make a new "adaptation". Long story short, I want to get heavily involved in all Eva articles (I have been punching all of them up for the past 6 months are so as best I could) and eventually launch a "Wikiproject: Evangelion" as a sub-part of Wikiproject Anime (just as Wikiproject Middle-earth is a sub-section of Wikiproject Films and Fantasy). You know, there ARE quite a few other Eva fansites out there, but many are just old holdovers from 10 years ago or so or don't have a lot of people going to them: I mean theoritically I could just make a dedicated "EvangelionWiki" like Wookipedia is for Star Wars: however, I'm focusing my efforts on Wikipedia itself because this is where the most "casual new fans" go for information, and I'm trying to do my part to hook them in. More "Visible" on Wikipedia itself. So there is a two-part goal this summer: launch a Wikiproject Evangelion, and round out ALL Evangelion articles to the point that they are DEFINATIVELY completed, and then we can just sit around and do maintenance on them. Not long after that, word will start coming out about Rebuild of Evangelion, which will basically DOUBLE all Evangelion material, and hopefully give enough new buzz to get Live Action Eva off the ground. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 23:23, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
Righto. Actually, you sound remarkably like me - except I watched EVA after buying the DVD boxset because it sounded like something I'd enjoy, I actually DID watch it when I was 14/15 (I had my birthday in the middle), and, well, yeah. I'm surely in a minority here, but to me EVA is a personal thing rather than a media thing. I kid you not when I say that my mental and emotional state was ALMOST IDENTICAL to that of both Shinji and Asuka (but especially Shinji) at the time I saw the series, and by the time it was finished it had radically overturned my outlook on life. I think of Hideaki Anno the way many people might think of, say, Jesus. At any rate, I am therefore fiercely devoted to the series, on not just a level of fandom but of personal appreciation as well. I'm not the social type, but I always like to share my observations and analyses of something so important to me with those who are willing to hear. That's why I take such an interest in EVA-related editing. And by the way, EVA is the only anime for which I would say without any hesitation that the English dub is equal to, if not greater than the Japanese.

Writing in capitals is considered to be SHOUTInG. Please do not shout, not even in article titles. -- RHaworth 06:52, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

  • (sigh) the name of several Neon Geneis Evangelion episodes is indeed spelled out in full capital letters. I will move them back. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 15:49, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

This IMDb page does not contain any shouting. Where is your justification for caps? Even you do not use it: in Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win! the title in the infobox is not capitalised. In this Google search how many times is the title capitalised? -- RHaworth 21:21, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

See List of Neon Genesis Evangelion episodes#Episode titles. The translated Japanese titles simply have some titles which are all-capitalized, and apparently wiki-project Anime states that this takes precedent over the standard manual of style. Please move this discussion there, and stop making more work for me to do by reverting everything back after we're already decided it is correct the way it is. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 06:15, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Have a Barnstar[edit]

Barnstar of High Culture.png The Barnstar of High Culture
For your contributions to Librarians are hiding something among others, and in recognition of your excellent taste in movies, music, and television. Goodnightmush 00:38, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Umm...thanks, how do barnstars work exactly? I mean with "Librarians are hiding something" I was actually trying to write a serious article about what I thought was a new internet meme. Is this just something one individual can award another or was there a vote on this or what?--Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 13:59, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Howdy. Check out barnstars for more information on barnstars. They're generally given for dedication to one task or another. I can see you do a lot for wikipedia, although your work with "Librarians" is the only material i am also familiar with. Good taste in culture is generally not a criterion, but I was so impressed I had to note it in the award. Goodnightmush 14:47, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Talk:Characters of The Big O[edit]

Wikipedia has a manual for writing about fiction. It basically says fictional events should be recounted the way they happen for the viewer, not the way the happen for the characters.

Like saying "Roger was adopted at the age of five by an affluent family" at the start of his entry when the viewer doesn't learn that until halfway through the series. It should read "In Act:14, Roger reveals through internal monologue he was adopted." or something of the sort.

Take Schwarzwald. His entry read...

"Michael Seebach is a vigilante reporter before the main narrative begins, but later he is transformed into Schwarzwald."

Now, we both know it didn't happen that way. When he appears he is already transformed and Seebach does not actually appears on the show. So I changed it to...

"Schwarzwald first appears in Act:04, 'Underground Terror'. His real name is Michael Seebach, a reporter for Paradigm Press."

--Nohansen 16:04, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Oh I know I know; I'm going to have to brush up on that eventually; yeah the "In-universe" stuff won't be a problem, it's just that I like all of the info from the show that had to be removed (which basically just means next time around I"ll actually have to say "this is revealed in Act 5", etc. etc.) The goal is of course to eventually get like, independent articles for the major characters....but I'll have to learn how to write them up good to justify that. Well like I said I"m too busy at the moment and I really don't want to devote my life to wikipedia (I just drop in on shows I like) I"ll have to spend some time working on that later. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 16:13, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Adult Swim[edit]

Er... you seem to know a lot about Adult Swim, so I think it's worth asking: What shows would they, and could they, air, and on what basis do they select them? That is to say, for example, could my dream of watching Excel Saga on AS ever become a reality?

Few people actually know alot about Adult Swim, except Adult Swim. What I do know is that their annual "run potential new shows, or new anime we like, past the ad companies and see which ones they like" event is April 26th. After that, who knows. I have yet to figure out who has exclusive contracts with them (Gainax, ADV, whatever). I DO know they have acquired the rights to Death Note, but acquiring the rights to it does not mean they will run it (they only run stuff if they think they can later make money on it and enough will watch). I *do* know that they actually really liked Elfen Lied (story of the diclonius mutant Lucy (Lucy is like Asuka to a factor of ten). Problem was, they went so far as to ask the censorship board if they could run a *censored* version of Elfen Lied, but the censors flatly said it would be a cold day in hell when they could run ANY of that show. As a result, I am now leading an online drive (well, mostly just the Elfen Lied fans from Adult Swim) to get it on another channel, i.e. IFC, which DID run "Gunslinger Girl" totally unedited. The hope is to garner enough interest to eventually get a sequel. But I do not seriously expect good results. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 03:10, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Eva portal images[edit]


I removed the Selected Image section from the Eva portal simply because there are so few potential images that you can have there. Wikipedia does not allow fair use images on portals. It sucks, but that's the way it is. -- 18:32, 7 June 2007 (UTC) Note also that fair use has been removed from lists, the main page, and probably completely removed from Wikipedia in a while. Are you sure you want to use Wikipedia for this work? -- 18:35, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

I see now that this was a wikipedia-wide policy, apparently similar to when the images were removed from the episode lists. .....EvaMonkey may be better; wikipedia is always just a launching point (i.e. MemoryAlpha is better than wikipedia's Star Trek section could ever be). --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 19:16, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Well, there might have been a good reason for using one fair use image to illustrate a featured article on a portal, but having somebody elses propriatory image as a "featured image" - not a chance. -- 14:31, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
What exactly does "Fair use" mean? Do not link to the fair use article I have already read it but apparently, I don't understant what you mean by it. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 18:00, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
Wikipedia has stricter rules for fair use media than what would be allowed under US law. See Wikipedia:Non-free content for the policy and guideline on this. Note that as of late, certain administrators have started interpreting and changing policy on fair use to be even stricter than this - it is anticipated that all images, sounds etc. that aren't PD/GFDL/CC-BY will be removed in a while. -- 22:04, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Little context in Enemies in World War Z[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Enemies in World War Z, by (talk · contribs), another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Enemies in World War Z is very short providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Enemies in World War Z, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page.

Evangelion images and episodes[edit]

Basically, a non-free image has to say what articles it's being used in explicitly (See file links is a bit iffy) and explain exactly why this image is important to each article it's being used in. A lot of using non-free images is to do with spelling out common sense, I think. If the Evangelion wikiproject makes their fair use rationales more detailed, the images have got more chance of not being deleted in the next fair use purge, whenever that'll be. You could look at how others do their images - GA-FA class articles have to have their images properly fair-use, so it might be worthwhile looking at those. The major problem with Image:Spear_of_longinus_and_unit_00.jpg for me was that it didn't name its articles, and didn't say why the image was important to each article - both problems that Willbyr kindly had a stab at. Try using Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria as a checklist for each image - and if it doesn't explicitly state something on the Image: page, it might be worthwhile editing the Image page to state the bleeding obvious. Another issue is the image sizes - the only concrete mention I've found of this is at Template:Non-free_media_rationale#_note-1, where it suggests 300px or less. Anyway, I hope this helps - I've linked the non-free criteria and the fair use rationale guideline on your project page so that it's handy. Eventually, your episode articles could have stuff like the production and the real-world response - that'd be the stuff that'd need citations, and it also helps make the articles out of universe and more interesting. Anyone can watch an episode, but it takes some research to find out about the production of it. you'll notice that in WP:SM we don't have any episode articles - that's partially due to having 200 of them, and partially due to not being able to find much in the way of real-world information about them. Mind you, we do link to an external Sailor Moon wiki for episodes. None of this stuff has to be done right this second, but you might like to keep it in mind as the Work Group gears up. Best of luck. :) -Malkinann 00:56, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

The problem is that even after reading through the image use guidelines, I keep getting that feeling that I think I know what I'm supposed to do when I really don't. (sigh) I'll be getting back to this. There's a prototype EvaWiki in the works, so the overall plan is to actually make the episode guide articles here conform to rules more and get them GA-quality level, and then expand upon them on the private site (similar to what MemoryAlpha and WookiPedia do). Problem is that anime episodes, that is individual anime episodes, don't have as much of a "real world reaction" as say, Star Trek's "These Are the Voyages" (I pray you never had to live through that mind-bogglingly bad series finale, but I digress...). While I like putting up the "summary" part, I always focus on developing the Notes/Analysis sections; this actually fits well for Evangelion, because the writers kind of "painted in the corners" and little things scribbled on notes a character is holding are actually little hints about the plot that they drop (i.e. in Lilliputian Hitcher's Notes section, the thing pointing out that the hand-written stick-it notes are an Easter Egg). Well I'll be working on this for a while, so "work in progress". Thanks. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 01:29, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Yo, V5...I think we need to talk about the future of the images in the Evangelion articles. I've started a discussion at the WikiProject's talk page. Willbyr (talk | contribs) 03:57, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Be back in a few hours please wait. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici 21:35, 14 July 2007 (UTC)
Got your message just now. I'm in the process of getting all the images in the category size-reduced and giving the purposes for each a bolster so they can meet FU guidelines...I'm about halfway done. After that, I may try to tackle the episode articles. Willbyr (talk | contribs) 04:50, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Neon Genesis Evangelion episode review[edit]

V, I could put Neon Genesis Evangelion on the review list, or you could — actually, anyone can start the process. But if you're interested in keeping the articles, you can start looking for real-world source material now, and improve the articles before the review starts. Some of the reviewers are pretty harsh and dismissive of what they call "fancruft". The best defence against them is to have lots of real-world context as well as the fannish info the articles have now. If there are interviews with the creators, artists, voice actors and so forth, that would help; so would reviews printed in a reliable source. Personally, I'd rather wait to put another anime series on the list until we see how the Oh My Goddess review goes. —Josiah Rowe (talkcontribs) 17:29, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Eva 1.0 article[edit]

Hi, I'm copy-pasting this image to all you members in the Evangelion workgroup, since there seems to be no communication/to-do template in your workgroup yet (not sure if I have the time to join myself yet). The article on the newest movie needs serious help, particularly in converting listcruft to prose. Note that you may expose yourself to some spoilers if you choose to help.

Talk:Elfen Lied/GAR 1[edit]

Your comments at the GAR page have been removed. Commenting on the GAR is done, so such comments would belong on the talk page. However, as they were also uncivil and included a threat to deliberately disrupt Wikipedia, I decline to move them. Ranting and making such threats is not acceptable. -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 00:15, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Again, your remarks on the GAR have been removed. They were not constructive and not civil. Also, your edit to Lucy and Nyū to delete the redirect of a merge is borderline vandalism. I strongly suggest you stop the ranting and the pointy edits. -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 19:40, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
Irrelevant; the comments were directed at you and I know you read them. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 15:24, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
So if they were directed at Collectonian why'd you put them in a closed discussion? I'd also like to know what you have against WP:Verifiability. I dont see how changing Wikipedia articles to conform to the available and published facts is is any way ruining the pages. Any other encyclopedia would require the same level of referencing, and not having proper references on pages is what gives wikipedia the reputation for being unreliable. --Kraftlos (talk) 17:32, 4 July 2008 (UTC
......I acknowledge that these are the rules as they have been set forth and that I cannot possibly change them or resist them. I will not bring this up again. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 22:12, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
Hey, I don't wanna be a harda$$ about this; this is just how WP operates. I'd like you to know that I'm trying to maintain the original character of the sections I work on. I don't think anyone wants to butcher the article down to just references; it just has to say where the information came from. That's all. --Kraftlos (talk) 21:38, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
I'm not blaming you or anyone specific Kraftlos. I'm just mad at The System. Don't think anything of it. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 20:57, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Revert warring[edit]

I'm fed up with your constant revert wars.

If you're not able to contribute as a normal wikipedian, and discuss article content before blindly and savagely reverting, actions will have to be taken against you.

How many times will you disrupt Wikipedia just because "you are personally insulted that your edit isn't the final one" ? If no one can ever modify (even slightly) the edits you make in an article, with no other reason that you refuse to admit the possibility that you can make mistakes sometimes, then it is a case of article ownership which is not seen as an acceptable behavior on WP.

Besides, given the last revert war you waged on me happened only a few days ago, one could think that you've actually targetted me and that you're determined to revert all of my edits just out of spite, because I dared to question your way of editing. Which is incivil behavior, and can result in blocks.

So consider this as a "friendly" way of making things better between us, before I use official warnings. I can't see why I would be the only one to be civil, to try to discuss edits and to reach compromises between my ideas and some of yours, when you seem to be perfectly fine with just reverting to your version.
So, to conclude, concerning the Eva 1.0 plot summary, if your next step consist in discussing the edits, explaining and giving reasons why you don't like my version, and taking into account what I have to say on this matter, and if you wait that we reach a compromise before doing anything else (like reverting), then it's fine. Otherwise, I will have to go further in what I mentionned earlier.Folken de Fanel (talk) 23:09, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Continue this discussion on the Rebuild talk page. Folken it is you who are unable to contribute normally: you've done little actual work on these articles other than to cut things out the rest of us wrote and call it "actual work". You never tried to achieve consensus on anything, but simply cut stuff out and keep badgering everyone else. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 23:15, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
No, it is you who are unable to contribute normally. Whatever "great" actuall work you claim to have done on the articles do not give you the right to claim the ownership of an article:
I am as entitled to you to make edits on Wikipedia. And yes, "cutting things out" can be positive. That's why we talk about summary style, and that's why there are many rules and guidelines about how to edit on WP, because obviously, you can't write on WP as you would on a forum. You are obviously not familiar to the WP style, and I remove what must be removed in order to be more wikipedia in style.
Because, no matter how great you think you are, you're still making mistakes. And they can't go uncorrected forever.
It's you who never tried to achieve consensus on anything: how many reverts did you need before actually taking the matter to the talk page ? You just reverted, and reverted, and reverted, without a single attempt at explaining yourself, beside showing how you dislike me and how you're determined not to allow any of my edits, as if you were an admin.

Re:NGE deletion[edit]

You did everything correctly, although you missed one minor but important thing: the editer who created the article should be notified using the template syntax provided on the afd template ({{subst:adw|Neon Genesis Evangelion RE-TAKE}} ~~~~ ). I went ahead and placed the notification message on the user's talk page, otherwise my hats off to you for getting it all right on first try. TomStar81 (Talk) 07:05, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey, wait a sec... are you...?

...also, how do you put those button-things on you user page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gatotsu911 (talkcontribs) 16:52, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm pleased to meet you and I hope you guessed my name, but what's puzzling you, is the nature of my game. Otherwise, as you know I founded WikiProject Evangelion, and I created the Eva Portal. I also wrote up the episode guide article series, but of course, Wikipedia admins gutted those and deleted the entire thing. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 01:40, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Most professional "wikipedians", hardcore wiki-addicts, are morons who don't make it easy for other people to understand wiki-templates even though the whole concept was "a website anyone can edit". At any rate, do what I did: those "buttons" are "Userboxes"; I figured out how to use them by "reverse-engineering" other people's userpages. Search "Userboxes" and find ones you like. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 01:42, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

I hate when I go to edit a template and its just a mess of javascript. I took a year of java and it still confuses me. I think wikipedia has some good programming talent, but they dont seem to realize that they're quite advanced. It would be nice if they put in comments into their code, explaining what does what.... gah.... I feel your pain. --Kraftlos (Talk | Contrib) 02:10, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance[edit]

Why do you keep re-adding that information to Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance? It's original research, speculation, and unreferenced. —TheLeftorium 15:29, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

The reference is that I'm describing what the trailer is; that isn't Original Research (the original description by that other guy WAS original research, he took it too far and into speculation; you were right to change his version; but I brought back a toned down version of it.

Eva interpretation[edit]

So I've been thinking that I ought to gather up my ideas on how to interpret Eva correctly into one big essay covering everything, since I'm so dissatisfied at what I see in general - lots of bits and pieces, but nothing doing it all. I'm going to start with my impromptu dissertations at but I recall that from what I saw of your presentation, you seem to think along much the same lines as me, so I'm curious as to whether you see anything obviously wrong with my therapy paradigm & whether you've written up anything already. --Gwern (contribs) 05:05 7 October 2009 (GMT)

This will take time, and whenever I try to direct a vast new sweeping reorganization on here I get yelled at for "telling people what to do"; so I can review through what you post on wikipedia but I'll have more of a hands-off approach.--Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 20:13, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Hm? Oh, no, I think you've mistaken me. I intend this as a non-WP thing, since I know the synthesis and sources needed wouldn't fly here, even though I'm sure I'm correct. :) I'd be putting it on my personal wiki, with other essays of mine like Contacting you on WP was just the easiest way, and I didn't think it needed the privacy of email. --Gwern (contribs) 23:16 7 October 2009 (GMT)

Eva economics[edit]

Since I know how much you enjoy reading the latest interpretation of Eva, I thought I'd link you to something I found today:

Apparently Eva is about the conflict between globalism and protectionism, and borrows many elements from James Bond movies. I felt so enlightened after reading it - and since it's a published academic work, I can't wait to begin rewriting our articles based on it! --Gwern (contribs) 23:07 5 November 2009 (GMT)

And isn't it fascinating that the title of NGE comes from William Burroughs, and that the character based off Nadia is not Shinji as we and Sadamoto always thought, but Misato? --Gwern (contribs) 00:26 7 November 2009 (GMT)
I have heard of that article before: it is beneath contempt to the point that we don't even need to make an argument against it, like for Sean McCoy etc.; it's as complex as the inane scribbling on a bathroom wall; for God's sake he openly states he only based it on the first 14 episodes. To be read once so if other people stumble on it you can tell them to avoid it, but otherwise...making a counter-argument would only prolong its life, when instead we should let it die a quite death of obscurity. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 16:09, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
So... you aren't interested either in the articles he has published on Eva? :( And after I got copies of them! --Gwern (contribs) 00:15 10 November 2009 (GMT)

That said, if you can tone down your personal attacks and can stop adding uncited text until we have resolved the citation and synthesis issues in article discussion, I will discuss the matter with you. You need to act better than you have, as you get less honey when you kick over the beehive. - Jack Sebastian (talk) 05:06, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

RE: Species in Defiance[edit]

Hello. I am watching this back and forth between you and Jack. I am only on Wikipedia (WP) for about 2 weeks and I don't know completely the rules yet, that's the reason I don't want to get involve with all this. I can only tell you the experience I had till now when one of the pages I created was deleted.
I don't know if you noticed but, I am the person who made the pages for the episodes of Defiance. Only episode 9 left and I'll do it later today if I have some time or tomorrow. Except from Defiance, I made pages for the episodes of Modern Family (MF) show too. Why am I saying that...
In one of the episodes of MF, my page was deleted because of copyrights. I contacted the administrator who deleted the page and through a nice conversation, he restored the page and I could write about the episode again. The problem was the "plot" part. I write the plot of the episodes after watching them (or watched in the past) and the adminstrator asked me to add some cites on the plot of where I found the information. When I said that it was after watching the episode and not from a specific source, except from the episode itself, and that also almost all the plots I see on WP don't have sources, we ended up in a no way out because no one knew if that was allowed. So, I asked on the Help page of WP in hope to find an answer.
The people there were very polite and they provided me with links about WP's "rules". In the case of a plot, the editor can use the episode as primary source as long as they just describe what is happening in the episode without any personal analysis or personal conclutions. Since you are not writting a plot, I am not sure if the episode can be used as a "reliable source" just because of the chatacters' lines. This is something you have to ask and see if it's allowed.
As for the facebook and tulblr links, for me personally since the accounts are official, it is considered a reliable source. But that's for ME! I don't know if WP can accept them. I read somewhere in the pages with the rules, while I was going through them for my deleted page, that links from Facebook or blogs are not reliable for WP. But in this case, that the accounts are official, I don't know if they can be "reliable source". I know it sounds inlogical not to be reliable sources but if those are the rules on WP we can't change them :(
I believe the best way to sort this out is to contact an administrator or the people on the Help Desk, tell them about the problem, what pages you are using as sources and ask if you can use those pages. Till then, to not seeing your work getting deleted or removed, and avoid this back and forth (personally I don't know at this moment what parts of the page I read and which ones I didn't :( it's bad for the people who are watching the page this back and forth) maybe you can stop adding things for the moment or even better copy the whole page and make the changes you need on your sandbox. When you are ready and after talking about the problem with an administrator if you can use the Facebook and tumblr links, you can paste your work back to the original page.
Just wanted to tell you my experience and I hope it can help. Arguing with Jack it won't solve the problem, it will only make it worse for both of you. Ask what you can use and what you can't and then make your edits.
I enjoy very much reading your additions because I am learning about the species and I really hope this problem will be solved soon. Sorry for my long post. TeamGale (talk) 20:33, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

Alert: AfD on collision course[edit]

There is a discussion in the talk page of Species in Defiance that I am positive you are going to want to be a part of. Additionally, the article has been nominated for deletion (not by me). This is what I was warning you about before, though. - Jack Sebastian (talk) 21:48, 26 August 2013 (UTC)

Re: "Species in Defiance" deleted[edit]

Hi V3,
I am rather sorry that the article was deleted, but I had nothing to do with either its nomination or deletion. I did not even vote in the AfD discussion, as I was waiting for you to contribute. As soon as I heard about the deletion discussion, I notified you on August 26th about the movement in the article, apparently arising out of the discussion I initiated at the Reliable Sources Noticeboard. My only contributions to the AfD were two comments: here and here.
I wanted sources, not deletion, and repeatedly tried to warn you that this was a likely outcome, were better sources not forthcoming. I am sorry you did not contribute to the AfD and, were better sources to be found, the article could be reinstated. This means avoiding Facebook, YouTube, and other suspect, unreliable sources. I'd even help.
I have no opinion about the Mass Effect races article you mentioned, and haven't seen it. (I have a toddler, so my RPG gaming opportunities are long gone for now). If it was cited to something other than the company's website, FB, YT or some such, it would have never faced deletion.
My Dad used to edit Wikipedia, and I took over a lot of his articles when he retired for health reasons, so I am still something of a literalist when it comes to the policies and guidelines - this even in the face of WP:IAR. I have decided (for myself) that if it can pass the litmus of strict procedural interpretation, it deserves to be in an online encyclopedia. If not, there are several, less stringent wikias out there ready to provide a home for it. If that sounds elitist, then I guess it is. Wikipedia's supposed to be better than the rest; it is, in fact, what the others measure themselves up against.
For me, it isn't a matter of being inclusive or exclusive; it is a matter of keeping the opinions of the editors who contribute to the encyclopedia out of said encyclopedia. It is this goal that makes us different than all the rest of the pretenders out there. I usually avoid issues of notability; I don't know every nuance of a given culture, so who am I to say that something is notable or not? I simply ask myself if more than a few people would find the matter of interest. For me, it always comes down to whether it can it be reliably, verifiably and neutrally referenced. If yes, then it isn't WP saying something, its the source. If not, then it has no business being here.
Lastly, I'd point out that the Defiance subarticle wasn't deleted because of notability. It was axed because of the numerous copyvios and bad sourcing.
I completely get that you are discouraged by this turn of events, Vi, but I think the better take away from this is how to make a better-sourced article. With that in mind, I'd like to propose something. I am not sure if you are a Babylon 5 fan, but the Civilizations in Babylon 5 article is in dire need of some cleanup, and I happen to know that there is a lot of sources out there for this. I simply don't have the time to do it myself, but I am worried that the Wrecking Ball™ might come a-calling at some point. You could save it, if you were so inclined. - Jack Sebastian (talk) 02:03, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

For the last time: a video released on the official youtube channel of a TV series, featuring statements by the creators, is blatantly a reliable source. As for the Facebook information I'd proposed just asking some of the production team to repeat it on an official blog or something so we could avoid the problem.--Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 15:14, 18 September 2013 (UTC) wasn't deleted for notability? I asked that you point out what was specifically wrong with the article, and I'd remove the OR. Much of this is my fault for being away from wiki for a few weeks.--Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 15:16, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
I am not sure how to respond to your latest post, Vi. I thought I explained Wikipedia's stance on using Youtube as a source. You should have taken my advice and gone to RSN to have them endorse your intended inclusion of dozens of links for one or two sources. Without support , you were pretty much dead in the water.
You are completely correct in admitting that you should have been on-wiki. I am not sure why you were avoiding the emails you must have been getting informing you of posts made on your talk page, but I get those every time. It happens. I think I did what I could to let you know; not sure why you are still blaming me. - Jack Sebastian (talk) 21:30, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

No. Youtube videos can be used when they're the official youtube channel and the *series creator* appears in it; when the TV show is using YouTube as a distribution method. I'm confused...what would you describe that video as...other than an official source? What, you think it's look-alike actors? No, you're suggesting that it's video stolen by a youtube account claiming to be the "official" Defiance channel. EVEN THOUGH the official Defiance website links to it directly?!--Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 00:13, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Arbitrary break[edit]

I've brought this conversation over here so you can preserve it, or whatever. I've removed it from my talk after responding - it's all been moved here. Understand this move is not a request to engage in any more discussion about this. I would prefer to not interact with you any more. My time is too limited to be spending it in educating someone who doesn't recognize the value of the lessons he is supposed to be learning. Please don't bother me anymore. - J. S.

1 - Your rigid devotion to absurd citation rules is symptomatic of the destruction of Wikipedia these past few years.

2 - I remain utterly unapologetic for what you called "Synthesis" - which I call "reasonable extrapolation". For god's sake you refused to even acknowledge "Indogenes can smoke cigarettes but it's also bad for them, just like humans" - until I fought you at every turn.

3 - I am shocked that you consider yourself to be "accomplishing" anything on're a card-carrying Deletionist, judging from your contributions list. You and only you were trying to shut down the articles on Defiance. You camped on it and wouldn't leave it alone. You haven't "contributed" to any of this, just gutted the work of others.

4 - The actual discussions you made on that page simply ignored points I was making: you waved a hand and said I was citing only Facebook to prove something so basic as the name of the Castithan religion....even after THREE go-rounds of me directly pointing out that the citation links was to the official website, not facebook. You're not even paying attention.

5 - While I am passing annoyed that you criticized the page so much and brought enough attention to it to get it deleted, this was a secondary goal. Some of the Defiance cast & crew were coming to my local scifi convention and I wanted to impress them with a nifty little guide to the worldbuilding - and yes they enjoyed the "Species in Defiance" guide and chatted about little factoids in it. You served your purpose, and deleting the page after I already ran it by the crew at my local convention only "slammed the stable door shut after the horse had already bolted"..............I used you like tissue paper.

6 - You want to reduce the scifi TV pages of to ashes? You're welcome to be king of the ashes. As for me, I'm going to metaphorically sell out and work on one of the private wikis devoted to Defiance: showing them the depth of my work on "Species in Defiance" will be my resume, as it were (and it helps that under a different name I'm already an Administrator on other Wikia sites). I won't exactly be "king" on such a sub-wiki, but I'll settle for a shiny dukedom.

7 - Men who are small can never stand tall, while giants still walk in the light. --Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici (talk) 00:25, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Pardon me for pointing out the obvious; but you were the one who chose to use Wikipedia as an in with the scifi crowd. I am not going to ever apologize for pointing out the (many) mistakes you were making; the fact that you pointedly chose to ignore that advice and then blame me when the consequences came a-calling is no one's fault but your own. Indeed, you failed to respond to the AfD notice, or from either of the head-up messages I sent you. I was the only one defending the deletion, and you blame the whole thing on me? Vi, I know a dead horse when I see one. You are simply going to put the fault of your own slovenly, ill-plotted work habits on me, no matter what I say, so go ahead and consider your mission complete. Now you may go away, and never darken the doorstep of my talk page again. My time is too limited to waste it continuing to try and help you. As you are going to blame me for several deletions which I had nothing to do with no matter what I say, I'm not going to say anything else about this with you. I am glad you have found a place to call your own on another wiki; I am sure you will be happier there than you were here. The rules of Wikipedia require a bit more fortitude than other places; not everyone can hack it. Good luck in your endeavors. Elsewhere. - Jack Sebastian (talk) 02:59, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
