Stub September 2020!


Hey Elfwreck, thanks for all your recent edits to our stub pages. You've earned three shiny new badges. One is for adding so much content to Phineas and Ferb that it is no longer a stub, and another for identifying that the AO3 Census: Masterpost is no longer a stub. You've also earned our bonus badge for going the extra miles on Robin (DC Comics). Well done!

Stub September activity


Hi! We're belatedly setting up the gardeners mailing list, so if you're still committed to gardening, could you send an email to volunteers at subj:wiki-gardener so that they can subscribe you using that email address? Lemme know if our astonishing slackness has changed your mind about being a gardener. --Betty 03:01, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I just want to say that I love the info you're adding about filks and filking. I don't know much about it and am learning all sorts of new things. --Mrs. Potato Head 14:48, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Hey there. If you have time, would you read over the glossary pages I made for copyright, Fair Use, Creative Commons and the changes I made to Intellectual Property and make sure that in trying to make simple definitions, I didn't simplify to the point of meaninglessness or some other transgression? I would really appreciate your more knowledgeable eyes on those pages. Thanks! (and anyone else is welcome too, of course) --facetofcathy 17:47, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

album template question

Hello! The only way I could find for removing included categories from certain individual pages that use the template was here, and it looks like it would be as complicated as added the category manually. Do you know of another way? Otherwise, we'll either have to remove the filk music category from the template or restrict the template to filk album articles only. I don't know how many non-filk album pages there are likely to be.--æthel 22:47, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Non-filk albums might include individual fanmixes, Dr. Demento albums, and movie soundtracks. (Off the top of my head, the soundtracks for Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Terminator (2?) and Akira were memorable & part of many people's fandom experiences.) So, ahm, maybe there should be a "filk album" and "album" template? --Elfwreck 14:42, 25 September 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for working on those double redirects, Elfwreck. --MPH (talk) 13:44, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

Another thanks for working on the redirects! You keep it so tidy! --MPH (talk) 14:57, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

Help with Infobox Creation?

Hi Elfwreck, under the help category it suggested if we needed help we could contact a gardener so I'm going ahead and doing that. I am trying to make a new infobox template for Art Roleplay Games, and you can find that template page here.

I am not code savvy so I copy and paste other infobox code then insert what needs to go there. But I can't figure out how to fix an issue I'm having where once I put the infobox template into a page, then type into the sections (like arpgname= Fawnlings), once I hit preview nothing shows up after the =. I can't figure out how to get it to show and the template help pages aren't really explaining the problem either. Could you possibly help me? Thanks! Patchlamb (talk) 19:47, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Amazing work, Elf! You've blacked out both of your cards for the Bingo Challenge! That means you've earned the remaining three badges for the Bingo Challenge, so here they are...

Misc Hello

A spot for random comments that don't belong in any other section!

Hello! Thank you so much for helping me during the bingo period! I appreciate it, especially during what probably is a busy period for n00b questions. OT: I see you collected Elfquest! Alas I could not, but I do recall spending hours in the mall reading available copies during the mid-1980s. ^^; WhitedSepu (talk) 03:11, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

Hey Elfwreck! I saw your message about Dabi/Hawks and oh boi do I agree with you! In fact, I feel like quite a lot of the BNHA pages need to be updated or created, given how the story is unfolding. I do want to make a page for Enji Todoroki, seeing how Horikoshi is hellbent on redeeming him and how fans are very conflicted about that. And Enji is quite integral to the Dabi/Hawks dynamic so it would make sense to do so. Do let me know if you're cool with working together on these massive updates. But I have to let you know in advanced that I have my finals going on till the end of this month, so I won't be able to give adequate attention to adding info. Cheers^^ --Mika Marguerite (talk) 07:01, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
