Enemy to Caretaker trope (glossary term)

Hello, you mentioned that the Enemy to Caretaker trope was growing in AO3 and it would be interesting to have a glossary page for it, I built it a few minutes ago. It's still small, a stub, but if you want to go there and add something I would be grateful -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 14:15, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

To Anyone Reading This:

does anyone know what's up with the Winona_Ryder, Melissa_Benoist, and Berkley_Silverman accounts on AO3?? I feel like I'm diving into some conspiracy I wasn't meant to see lmao -- Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 19:48 EST, 19 April 2022

Curiosity killed me and I went to see it I wish I hadn't. Better not to go into it too much, I just feel that the three of them are related, maybe they're from the same person. Black Mirror and M. Night Shyamalan sends his regards -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 00:32, 20 April 2022 (UTC)


I'm looking to make an InsaneJournal account, if anyone can spare a cose. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 00:36, 19 October 2022 (UTC)

code* Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 00:36, 19 October 2022 (UTC)

I've had an account there for a few years, after I got an invite, but I have no idea how to invite someone -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 17:54, 19 October 2022 (UTC)

seems to be Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 20:13, 20 October 2022 (UTC)

actually it's on this link here [1] because on the other you are blocked if you enter and there are already open invites. Got one a few years ago, never been used. Do you want him? -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 01:57, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

him...? Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 02:22, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

do you want the code? to enter the insanejournal? I don't speak English, my translator is wrong. I think I may have cut what I said -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 00:22, 22 October 2022 (UTC)

yes, I'd appreciate the code Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 01:15, 22 October 2022 (UTC)

Sobqjmv sphinx the code is fsq8caaat5dx ok -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 08:40, 23 October 2022 (UTC)

thank you thank you thank you Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 13:48, 23 October 2022 (UTC)

The credit is not mine, the code was passed to me by an acquaintance. At the time I got two invitations and I only used one so the other stayed there. Hope you like the site -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 07:26, 24 October 2022 (UTC)

Lost Narnia Podfic Site?

In my endless search for Eustace Scrubb-centric Chronicles of Narnia fanfiction I have stumbled upon a Reddit user claiming to have once seen a Narnia audio fanfic site with "radio" in the name. Any leads would be appreciated. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 22:56, 12 November 2022 (UTC)

found it on an old archive of the Narnia Fan Fiction Revolution site! Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 01:23, 13 November 2022 (UTC)

it seems that none of them were saved on the Wayback Machine, though, so I may go on a quest to track down any other postings. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 01:27, 13 November 2022 (UTC)

first result for reaching out to the authors: acacia59601, author of "The Guardian," does not have a copy of the podfic. I PM'd her. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 14:24, 13 November 2022 (UTC)

I am struggling to find a way to contact EveningStar. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 14:39, 13 November 2022 (UTC)

WingedFlight has also confirmed they do not have theirs. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 15:38, 13 November 2022 (UTC)

I have had my first success. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 18:28, 13 November 2022 (UTC)

got in contact with someone who's still able to communicate with many members and directed me to someone who may have files and apparently responds to PMs. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 19:26, 24 November 2022 (UTC)

Thank You!

Sobqjmv sphinx, thank you for all the work you are doing on archiving references. I love seeing those saved and updated. :-) MPH 15:58, 1 January 2023 (UTC)

Source template for adding archive links

Hello, I love that you've been adding archived versions of external links to several pages, thank you for doing that! I wanted to point out Template:Source and Template:Cite web as tools that make it easy to include both the original link and the archived version on a fanlore page. Let me know if you have any further questions, I've been doing a lot with both of these templates! -- Quaelegit (talk) 03:25, 2 January 2023 (UTC)

Alright!! I'll try to use those more, thanks Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 17:07, 2 January 2023 (UTC)

Congratulations! --enchantedsleeper (talk) 23:46, 21 February 2023 (UTC)

Just a quick note

Hi hi! I just wanted to let you know, as it's something I was recently told myself. Fans/People don't get chronology categories. source Just thought I'd let you know, cause I didn't know either :) -JadedPrism (talk) 00:31, 23 March 2023 (UTC)

Oh, interesting! Sorry about that, thanks! I may have to make a few edits for that lol Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 00:33, 23 March 2023 (UTC)

It's okay lol! I do too. Or would, if I remembered them. You can just remove them if you come across 'em again ;) -JadedPrism (talk) 00:54, 23 March 2023 (UTC)
Neither of you should worry too much about that! It crops up a lot because its one of those rules that isn't obvious and most editors only learn it exists when they make a mistake. I've been there too! And Gardeners/Advanced Editors are used to updating categories when we see they need a change. Someone will get to them eventually xD --Auntags (talk) 00:37, 24 March 2023 (UTC)

Note on Category Sorting

I saw that you have been adding asterisk sorting to some pages to move them to the top of their categories (e.g. this edit on the ATLA&LOK relationships list page). While I appreciate the help with organizing pages within categories, the asterisk method is outdated and it's preferred (or at least Pinky G. and I prefer, and we've already been doing a lot of category re-sorting) to just put a space, like I did for this edit for the LOK fandom page. If you prefer the asterisk method, we should discuss it on a talk page (is here okay?) and come to an agreement so we're not making more work for eachother. -- Quaelegit (talk) 06:15, 5 May 2023 (UTC)

Oh, alright! Yes, I was confused by that. Sorry for any changes I made to your edits. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 17:03, 5 May 2023 (UTC)

No worries! I really do appreciate the help with keeping categories organized. I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page with *how* to organize them, lol. And you're right, it's confusing, b/c there's a lot of incosistency across fanlore as a whole on this --and I haven't found anything in the help pages about this either, i'll start a talk page discussion about it. -- Quaelegit (talk) 03:18, 6 May 2023 (UTC)

Removal of on the Bryan Fuller article


I know that there is no definite definition of "queer", but could you please give some insight why you removed that category on the Bryan Fuller article/you think it is not fitting? Especially since he has produced a [5-part documentary] on how horror and queer authors? -- WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 14:33, 28 May 2023 (UTC)

I found it strange for his page to be the only person's page in the category, when there are surely many other creators of queer content with pages on Fanlore who are not included. I think a category for "Queer Content Creators" or something along those lines may be useful, but for how it stands as a category right now, it seemed out of place. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 18:04, 28 May 2023 (UTC)

I see. As you may know, we have a rule of thumb that new categories may be created after around at least 5 article pages are there to be categorized. How would we know if we need more categories/subcategories if the articles aren't in a more general/broader category first? -- WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 19:04, 17 June 2023 (UTC)

I suppose that makes sense. I apologize. Sobqjmv sphinx (talk) 19:30, 17 June 2023 (UTC)
