Welcome to Fanlore, WhatAreFrogs?. :-) --MPH (talk) 16:03, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Thank You :). Since you're a gardener, can I ask you favour? I made some stupid spelling mistakes. Could you please move the page List of offical X-Files convention and panels to List of official X-Files conventions and panels and Fencesitter to Fence-sitter ? WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 08:12, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
Easily done! I also added caps to the panel and convention title.
I'm really enjoying seeing your X-Files editing on the "recent changes" page. --MPH (talk) 13:46, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Wow! You're adding so much interesting stuff, WhatAreFrogs?. This page alone is beautifully done: List of X-Files Podcasts. --MPH (talk) 15:55, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

ThanX (see what I did there?) ;-) There is still a lot work to do in the existing articles, though but some of the second and third way stuff from the Philedom is missing I try to add in the near future. WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 11:01, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

Have you thought about becoming an Advanced Editor? --MPH (talk) 13:11, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

I have. I even applied as a gardener some week back....WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 14:16, 22 November 2017 (UTC)


Perhaps you have some insight? I'm reading a 2001 academic article about The X-Files. It makes this statement:

" fans of the television show, which began its eight-season run in 1993, have designed hundreds of thousands of Web pages devoted to the series. -- A search for the text "x-file" using Yahoo! on April 24, 2001, brought up 10 categories and 441 sites. By comparison, a search on "star wars" brought 24 categories and 737 sites, and "star trek" gave 50 categories and 954 sites. More recent sci-fi hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer had 2 categories and 197 sites."

Hundreds of thousands of web pages for the X-Files from "10 categories and 441 sites"? Am I missing something regarding the math here? --MPH (talk) 22:18, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Hmm. I think the numbers of category and pages refers only to the pages that were submitted the (English language) Yahoo index (before crawlbots were a thing and people/search engines used directories), but not every fanpage out there was submitted to/or accpeted by a a search engine directory. The number sounds as could be from the late 90s and maybe only referring to Websites in English/name of the show, by 2001 still the height of the shows popularity, I would expect that were way more than 441 pages on the whole internet about the show.

Does "hundreds of thousands of Web pages" mean hundreds of thousands of actual websites (which seems crazily high), or all the "pages" in a site, do you think? --MPH (talk) 14:42, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
I think it means that there were a lot of actual websites, more than the 441 on the Yahoo listing and someone was too lazy to count the actual number (which may have been closer to thousand of actual pages for all languages). :) WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 17:42, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

DD Teens

Turns out there was a DD Teens page already that didn't come up in a search due to spelling variation. I redirected the shorter, newer one to the better page. --MPH (talk) 14:31, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Odd. I had the feeling that was already a page for that but couldn't find it via the search nor via google. Anyhoo, I salvaged the "Similar sites" edit from you from the duplicate page and added it to the DDTeens one. WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 15:22, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Oh, thank you. I overlooked that part when I merged them. --MPH (talk) 17:43, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

"Gender Bender"

There's some chat on this page ( that maybe you have some insight regarding the X-Files ep and the term "gender bender." --MPH (talk) 22:18, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Page event?

Hello there! I saw you added the Bryan3 controversy to the BTS page. Would it be more appropriate to move it to the ARMY page or make it a page on its own? I feel like I could supply more perspectives and information if it was a page on its own. Also, this is my first time using talk pages, please tell me if I'm doing it wrong. ^^; ---Charmedseoul (talk) 17:27, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi Charmedseoul,
thanks for reaching out. Yeah, I agree it would fit better on the BTS Army page. In fact, I didn't know an article existed yet since the title page of the ARMY is misleading (there are several fan "armies" out there or have been there (#X3Farmy or Swifites comes to mind) going back to the Beatles[1]), so I would recommend renaming/moving the current ARMY article page to "ARMY (BTS)" or BTSARMY and have an extra, general article for all sorts of fan armies. --WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 16:48, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
I think that would work perfectly! Also, do you think the word "army" itself is too vague too? I think it a page called Fan Army should be created and the word "army" itself shouldn't have a page or it should have a disambiguation page. ---Charmedseoul (talk) 21:29, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
Hiya, as discussed, the ARMY article page was now moved to ARMY (BTS) and I also moved the section about controversies from the BTS article to this section. --13:05, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you so much. I look forward to seeing you around Fanlore! ---Charmedseoul (talk) 18:04, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
