Welcome Enchantedsleeper! Thank you for the recent edits on the Spider-Man & Megamind! If you happen to have any questions shoot me a message or any of the other gardeners! --Harpie (talk) 01:39, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
- Hey Harpie! Thanks so much! I have really enjoyed being able to contribute my odd bits of fandom knowledge :D Especially Spiderman which was a nice nostalgia-trip back to my teen years...
- Hope I can continue to be helpful! Thanks for the welcome :D -- Enchantedsleeper (talk) 22:03, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
Hide the Rum
I made a rudimentary page for this site: Hide the Rum. Maybe you can think of some things to add?
- Oh, thank you!! I wanted to make a page for it but I didn't think it would be possible without some access to an archived version of the forum. I like how you did it! I'll add as much as I can remember and also try to get in touch with someone from the LJ comm to see if they can remember the URL (I think there's a high possibility it will be recorded on the Wayback Machine).
- Thank you so much! o^^o I am really glad my edits have been helpful. I'm having a lot of fun contributing to Fanlore :D Thank you for being so nice and welcoming! Enchantedsleeper (talk) 12:47, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
I found this link where someone is talking about the forum. Perhaps you can use? http://allkindsofeverything.boards.net/thread/101/story-forum --MPH (talk) 13:11, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
- Haha, I *just* dug that link up myself! Yes, All Kinds of Everything was created by a former HtR user in 2013 who explicitly invited other former HtR members to take part in it. I intend to add a small section for it on the HtR page :) Thank you! Enchantedsleeper (talk) 13:30, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
April Showers 2018
Hi, Enchantedsleeper! I just wanted to thank you for adding Fantastic Beasts & Invisible Diversity in the Harry Potter Series, because it spurred me (/gave me the courage) to add what I know about fandom's hopes for a PoC Newt Scamander. Which is Important and needs to be documented, and I have information, but I am Still Angry and have No Chill on this subject, so writing about it calmly was a daunting prospect.
- Hey, Bikedancelaugheat! All I can say is WOW :D I *love* the info that you've added on PoC!Newt, and I'm so thrilled that I played a part in helping you document it.
- I've really enjoyed making pages for Stitch's awesome essays (she has so much great stuff about Harry Potter in particular), and I'm stoked to see them being interlinked with other articles and helping to make the coverage of race and fandom issues on Fanlore that much more comprehensive. Thank you for doing that, especially when it's not an easy topic for you to write about <3
- Also, if you'd like a hand with fleshing out the PoC!Newt coverage, I'm more than happy to join you down that rabbit-hole :D --enchantedsleeper (talk) 15:35, 01 August 2018 (UTC)
- *pokes head in* I was working on the Ilvermorny and History of Magic in North America (and Fantastic Beasts, to a lesser extent) pages earlier in the year - one thing those are really missing is more fan reception/reaction/meta. If either of y'all find material that would fit, or create new pages that are related, it would be great to see more links to further reading on those pages! Both of y'all's edits have reminded me to get back to those pages, so thank you! - Fandomgeographies (talk) 13:45, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Creating a Category
Hi, I wanted to ask about creating the Sports Anime category? I checked [] after making the sports anime page and realized need permission. It would be a subcategory of anime and manga. Please let me know if there's anything I need to prepare or fix. - Caessius
- Hi Caessius, yes that's a great idea! Please go ahead! Just to clarify, were you planning to make it a subcategory of Anime or Anime & Manga Fandom? I think the first one is probably more suitable as it contains the fandom pages for different anime, whereas the other is more about fandom activity; but let me know what you were thinking.
- Thanks for all your edits! --enchantedsleeper (talk) 00:22, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
- Oops, sorry about that! I should have realised. It seems like there's some odd stuff going on with the template though in that it's making everything italic - do you know why that would be? --enchantedsleeper (talk) 22:04, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
- That would be from Module:Citation/CS1 which italics the author and title of the works. Phoenix (talk) 13:28, 19 February 2019 (UTC)
- No problem! I enjoyed making them ;) It's a surprisingly interesting niche topic, haha. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 10:29, 02 March 2019 (UTC)
Edit on "Cats" page Question
- Hi, JKFAN. You may have already seen the answer to this query, but just in case, our most recent email about editing concerns explained why we preserve broken links on Fanlore. For more on this, you can read our Help article on dead links and this section on preventing link rot. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 10:41, 05 May 2019 (UTC)
I'm having difficulting connecting to my email right now, so I gotta do it this way.
- Here JKFAN removed Forbidden Planet because "All references on here to "Forbidden Planet" are about the movie." and that one link was about a bookshop in London.
- Here JKFAN removed In the Company of Wolves because "The page on here titled "In the Company of Wolves" is a 1990 meta essay about fan behavior." and that link was supposed to be about a J2 fic.
I am also concerned about JKFAN adding canon quotes to pages for no good reason and JKFAN uploading official logos and posters and the like. I don't know if anyone has directly told JKFAN to not do that, but I don't expect that me posting to JKFAN's talk page about any of this would actually do any good so bringing it up to you directly seemed best. - Hoopla (talk) 18:11, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
- Hey Hoopla - thanks for your message and for flagging these up. I've reverted both the edits that JKFAN made above. We did directly tell JKFAN not to add official imagery/logos or canon quotes with no fannish purpose in our last warning email, which was sent 4 days ago. Since he has continued to make these types of edits, we've issued a permanent ban.
- Thanks for all your help with flagging and reverting these issues, and of course for all your other great work on the wiki. -- enchantedsleeper (talk) 21:17, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
