    I have noticed this user is very active here but there is one thing I noticed that impressed me that he is marking pages for deletion that need to be deleted and if it was not for him they would be over looked and this also helps me out as well. so if its OK with him I would like to nominate him for RFA because IMV ASW should encourage everyone to help out another thing this user i setting a good example

    Category Restructuring

    May 18, 2012 by Ralok

    The categories here seem to be ill-thought out for the scope of the project . . . I suggest a complete restructuring of the categories.

    It needs to be planned though, there is going to be a loooooooooot of grunt work involved in reformatting the categories of 5000 pages, of course I have the time to do so o _ o

    There needs to be four over-categories, one for technology, worlds, sapient species, and non-sapient species. A basic overview of what I think it should be I am going to put here, but I think a lot more discussion needs to be put into the idea of a radical reformation such as this.


    • Planets
      • Habitable Planets
        • (various third-tear sub-categories based on broad environmental assessments)
      • Uninhabitable Planets
    • Moons
      • Habitable Moons

    A Beautiful Thing

    May 18, 2012 by Ralok

    Look at all these pages . . . look at them

    LOOK AT THEM I SAY

    LOOK AT THE GRAND GLORY OF HUMAN IMAGINATION

    This is humanities purpose, to imagine and create . . . and we havent even begun to scratch the surface!!!

    Marvel comics, DC comics, the French comic Aldebaran by Leo, Out of the silent planet by CS lewis . . . so much isn't covered here.

    Now here is the truly beautiful part . . . it can all fit in just one galaxy . . .

    if all of mans thought became real . . . it could fit into just ONE galaxy, and still leave more than enough breathing room.

    The Races of Prey

    May 15, 2012 by Ralok
    I have decided to re-blog my blog from the prey wiki, this blog concerns the many races of the "Prey Universe", as prey 2 has not been released the names of many of these races are simply placeholders'

    Well, prey has undergone a radical shift in structure. It is no longer a universe formatted like doom, resistence, or red faction. No longer does a single enemy sit upon a pedestle of wrong, and a single force stand for good. Normally a reformmatting like this would hurt the universe (ask red faction about when it added aliens) . . . . but . . . In prey, stated that other races and worlds existed out there. There was enough little things to indicate that this type of system could exist, and now it looks completely awesome.

    So I have noticed th…

    IP address 68.231.204.160 has been adding pages without information. While that isn't against policy or anything as far as I can recall, these completely blank could get easily lost amongst all the other pages if we don't get on adding at least some information to them, which for one will diminish our overall professionalism. If you are looking for pages to add info on, I suggest checking out their contribution page and adding info as well as images to the various pages (though you should check the alien species galleries just in case images for the species already exist). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Another idea brought up was that we should change the background theme from the default...siren or whatever it is... to somethin…

    Permaban (4/26/11)

    April 26, 2012 by Somarinoa

    I "permabanned" IP address 98.208.152.222 (for a full year) due to their...complete and total disrespect for the wikia project(s). He had vandalized the Interdimensional Being page with information such as, "I THINK ITS TIME FOR ANOTHER HIT OF LSD...." and "Thirteen beings arrived on my balls about 5,000 years ago (circa 3,000 BC)." He also linked to some Facebook account (his, I would assume) along with what some people consider a still-offensive version of the "n word". I will roll the edits back in a few minutes and hopefully he drowns in a river somewhere... and I mean that in the most professional way possible, of course.

It looks like he has got the message that this behavior won't be tolorated on this wiki however he should be moniored which I am doing at the moment but if he reverts back to his formor self let the ASPF know and we will handle it however if you are an admin by all means block him

    More Aliens for You Guys

    April 16, 2012 by Ralok

    wow amazing little wiki here!

    you guys are welcome to copy the pages from the Edgar Rice Burroughs/John Carter wiki

    http://barsoom.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Races

    there are many races native to barsoom/mars, venus/amtor, va-nah/luna that most definitely qualify as aliens!

    Edgar Rice Burroughs was one of the grandfathers of science fiction, so his races definitly deserve a place here :D

    I dont know if the pellucidar races count though, since they are from the center of the earth in a speculative version of the earth.

    Removing Images

    April 8, 2012 by Somarinoa

    Dantescifi thinks he's...funny, or something. He added a bunch of Star Wars images - some of which we already have - but the thing is, he added MASSIVE amounts of white to each. Each of these need to be deleted but I want the other admins to see. One is even the same image twice under separate species name. Sorry, but no. It's another suspicious action.

    I am not an idiot. I have an IQ only 16 points under Einstein and I am a significant Star Wars fan. You're not pulling any wool over my eyes here, buddy.

    It's entirely possible that they were attempting to add images without saving original images to the drive by using screen captures and MS Paint, though it seems unlikely due to the violations of species names and designs that don't norma…

    Pages to investigate

    March 28, 2012 by Somarinoa

    Here are a few pages to investigate that I have not been able to find pages to on the main wikia for the universe, Wookieepedia. I bring these to your attention in case any happen to be fanon, in which case I suggest moving to either Alien Fanon Wiki or my own Creativity Wiki. Keep in mind that there is another Star Wars wiki that I have not checked - Star Wars: The Old Republic Wiki. I am 3 hours late to start my Mass Effect 3 play schedule today and so haven't taken the time to peruse there yet, but you may wish to do so in my absence. In the case of the Blubreen, their article states a homeworld while their Wookieepedia article says it hasn't been stated yet. These pages to look into are listed below:

    Alien Fanon Wiki

    March 19, 2012 by Somarinoa

    We have still been moving articles written as fanon placed here to Alien Fanon Wiki. The only thing is, whoever took it over recently has killed it and brought it back down to be specifically based off the Alien universe. Therefore, we need to create a new fanon wiki to continue doing this. For those interested, I will also be pulling back my own fanon written there to my own personal wikia, Creativity Wiki. You all are welcome to join me there and place the pages there also, though it is not specifically dedicated to extraterrestrials (though they will certainly be a major factor there in the long run). -- Somarinoa 10:54, March 19, 2012 (UTC)

    In response to User blog:Insurgence/Article Comments -- Yes or no?

    I wish to thank Insurgence and Owen for the initiative to discuss this matter and Insurgence in particular for electing myself as the "defender"

    First let me say that after reading the first post I find some of Insurgence's four points to be very valid. Others, slightly disagreeable. But let's start with two points that I consider obvious:

    1. Comments stimulate discussion
    2. Comments stimulate frivolous discussion

    This is beyond doubt, especially but not uniquely to new users, and for many reasons: the use of a format so widespread across the internet makes us feel more comfortable than a talk page format. Consider too the fact that the comments are displayed on the same page as the ar…

    Recently BlueFrackle stated that he would be interested in having article comments on the wiki. As I am strongly against it, I am here to provide the cons while he will provide the pros for you.

    My list of cons:

    • Hard to follow conversations. Exactly what it sounds like, conversations previously discussed may be accidentally discussed again. Without topics on the comments, it's painful to wade through dozens of comments to find what I'm looking for.
    • Unprofessional. In Wikia Staff's recent string of "social site" releases, they have been making what is supposed to be a specific online encyclopedia into a social site. This is not facebook, this is wikia.

    Glitch Problems

    February 1, 2012 by Somarinoa

    Anyone else out there having problems with the wikia editing pane? A few days ago I noticed that the search results when typing into the search bar was appearing behind everything else, and that was....obnoxious but bypassable (simply by continuing to type). However, today when I logged on and prepared to continue editing galleries for Star Wars species (specifically illustrated aerial species), I found there to be no tabs for the "Source Mode" against the "Visual Mode"; I can't edit galleries in Visual Mode at all, and I feel as if the search bar problem was happening at home as well as at work, so I'm a little worried about it. Does anyone else have these problems at all? I want to find out if it is a wikiawide problem (and I did check ot…

    We've finally hit 3,333 pages, with today's addition of two Bespin species - the Airborne Algae Sack and the Airsquid!

We're coming along great so far, but we still have a long ways to go! Keep up the excellent work, everyone!

    Christmas Plans

    December 23, 2011 by Somarinoa

    I don't exactly celebrate Christmas (or any holiday), but I am not sure I will be able to get into my building at work to work all weekend. Therefore, I am setting up plans for what I should work on this weekend if I happen to be home. It should be noted though that I intend to spend a majority of the time I'd be home playing Mass Effect, as opposed to overhauling this page, simply because I want to beat both games in the series before Mass Effect 3 comes out, and on a normal day I can only go through one or two planets, if secondary missions; most days I do not have time after work for a single plot-based planet.

    I try to add something every day although since my job has taken over much of my life I simply have not had the time. It'd help however to have a basic guideline to follow, which I usually just have in a document but since I'm bored and want something to do in my downtime, I thought I'd make a blog about it.

    Since we now have 26 separate galleries for alien species, I thought I would perhaps add something per subsection of each letter, instead of just one per letter. This will take some time of course but hey, I've got a weekend coming up anyway. From what I'm staring at right now, here's my list I plan to work on this weekend, though I don't expect to get all finished - like I said, it's just a guideline. Keep in mind I took one from each …

    I am at work currently so I'm only doing the minor things I can get by with between short downtimes and such, but I was just in the Character Gallery and it is looking like it, like the Alien Species Gallery before it, is about ready for a splitting as well. I may do this during a significant period of downtime today, after work, or sometime during this work period, though I will wait probably at least an hour to see if anyone has any comments to add about the idea.

    Week's plan(s)

    November 30, 2011 by Somarinoa

    As I have this week off from work, I am playing through Mass Effect 1 (I was intending to beat it in a day since I was at the end of it...but I guess my ex had chosen to delete my save, so I got to start all over again, whooptie-doo). This fits in with Alien Species Wikia too, however -- I will be adding the information pulled straight from the codex for the various races and such here on the wikia. I'll probably do Salarians followed by Asari, and then the Krogan, Geth, Elcor, Volus, Hanar, Quarians, Protheans, Rachni, Keepers, Batarians, Husks, Thresher Maws, Varren, and then I'll see what I can come up with from there.

    Weekday Plans

    November 7, 2011 by Somarinoa

    I am going to see what I can do about adding in more letter galleries (such as the already-existing Alien Species Gallery (A) and B) this week. Since my weekdays are spent at work and all that, you certainly cannot expect me to finish the entire lettering, but I can work on it during my lunch breaks and downtime and such. But I'll see if I can't finish one a day at least (which would put us down to Alien Species Gallery (G)). Either way, though, I will definitely try working on it. I'd work on it right now, but I'm working for the weekend, so I do not have personal time at the moment and presumably won't later today, either. -- Somarinoa 02:58, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

    October 5, 2011 by Cgb07

    Doraemon

    Background


    He is a robotic cat from the 22nd century that has been sent to the present because he needs to guide the great-great grandfather of his master, Sewashi. He travels back to time to where Nobita Nobi lives as a young kid who is troubled with low academic marks and is being bullied by other kids so his self-esteem is really low. Moreover, the family of Nobita is troubled financially as their business goes down. In order to make the situation better, he is sent back to the 20th century.


    Origin

    Doraemon is created on March 9, 2112 and is manufactured at the Matsushiba Robot Factory. Initially, he is a yellow body with a higher voice and ears but because of the malfunction in electricity while he is being assembled. He becomes the…

    I am curious if anyone knows the coding to create a space within a subsection so that the next subsection to follow only begins after everything from the last subsection is shown? I could have sworn that it was { clear } (but with two brackets), but apparently it is not and I cannot find any information on it on Google. I know I filled it out recently on a few articles I've worked on but I work on several wikias and do not know exactly where or even exactly when it was that I did that, so that does not really help me, with hundreds of articles under my belt in the last few weeks.

    Rules & Policies

    June 15, 2011 by Insurgence

    Hello. Let me start this off, by saying that I am deeply honored if you are reading this blog, but unless you are directly involved in the policy and regulations process, or are interested in how our policies are made, you will probably find this boring. So this is basically what I want changed in regards to policies, if I get support from my fellow policy maker, Owen, then I will proceed to make the changes. Here's my plan for future changes.

    • I want to merge some of the policies. I think if we can have about 3 outlined, detailed articles that contain multiple policies, it would be better then it is now. I don't believe that the average reader wants to read 10 pages of policies before he/she starts editing.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm excited. Keep in mind everyone, that work from before the achievement badges were implemented do not count towards the badge progress - you will need to keep up the good work to get them from here on out.

    I was curious if the rest of the administration staff and even the users would like us to try and add badges - aka achievements - to the wikia, as is featured on some of the other wikias on the server (examples I know of being Conker Wiki, Invader Zim Wiki and Marvel Database Wiki). We have 36 active contributors this month, but badges could always encourage more contributions, and we still have thousands (if not hundreds of thousands lol) of articles to add still. I currently know where to request having a wikia gain the badge system and while not the original creator of the wikia, I am a bureaucrat so hopefully we could do something about it. What is everyone's opinions on the badge system? -- Somarinoa 06:38, June 6, 2011 (UTC)
