Interviews Portal


Yeah, I was Phoenix or something on TC, and I'm a moderator on RPC. I'm Phoenix on Mini's new forum too. But mostly I'm Phoenix on The Revival (TR). Oh and unreality on brainden

looks like you're a big contributor to LP ;D I need to start editing more, I've only contributed twice I think, lol

  • come to think of it, I think there was a member named "Sam McPherson" on the very first form of TR (it was called 'The Edge Chronicles' back then)
    • yep then me and a guy named Woodfish took over as admins for Shorstuff after he disappeared off the face of the earth, lol. Then the EC crashed, so we restarted it- then moved from forumsvibe to phpbb88 and called it TEC, but it got crappy, so we made TR. But yeah we have no idea what happened to Shortstuff... jeez, that musta been a year and a half ago or so :D
  • Yeah we've come to the consensus that he's in Atlantis shagging octopi ;D

Interview Portal

Hey, can you add Emilie de Ravin and Lance Reddick to the coming soon interviews. --Gluphokquen Gunih 21:49, 14 June 2008 (PDT)

Well, it's not a secret that we're going to have interviews with them, and the section is called coming soon, but i have no problem if you want to wait. --Gluphokquen Gunih 22:30, 14 June 2008 (PDT)


It was on a website i came across with an interview involving J. J. Abrams 01lander 16:54, 15 June 2008 (PDT)

I'm trying to at the moment! I clicked off it before i thought to add proof, so I'm just trying to find it again. 01lander 16:57, 15 June 2008 (PDT)

I'm not very good at using this site! Haha. I'm trying to find the interview now. 01lander 17:11, 15 June 2008 (PDT)

In regards to..? 01lander 17:19, 15 June 2008 (PDT)

Oh right, ok. I just didn't know how! 01lander 17:24, 15 June 2008 (PDT)

Thanks! Lol. Ur 1 of the nicer users, some of the others tend to get arsey... :S 01lander 17:34, 15 June 2008 (PDT)

Bring back the casualties petition

After the events that happend with deleting the 5 casualty articles, me and some other users started a petition for bringing those articles back on Lostpedia. If you share our opinion on this matter, please sign the "Save The Redshirts" section on my user page. If you want you could contact other users about this or create a "Save the redshirts" section on your user page, because the goal is to get as many users to sign the petition as possible along with 6 SysOps (Admins). I would appriciate a quick respond and a sign on either my user page or User:LostCloverfield42's page. --Orhan94


  • I know it takes all the recent changes but I think that's the only way every user on Lostpedia will get the chance to get to know the facts about the pages' deletations. I did make few statements why there should be a page for Red haired casualty (I actually created it in the first place) but I don't think many users read it so I think the best way to get most of the users to sign it is throgh a messeging with info on the petition.But I think I will listen to your advice and make a large statment on the blonde casualty talk page. And I would appriciate if you could sign the petition (in case my statement doesen't have the effect I wanted), though if it's your opinion thta these articles should not be brought back to Lostpedia I do not mean to make you go against your opinions.--Orhan94 09:34, 16 June 2008 (PDT)
    • I'm not trying to make the users argue with each other, I'm just trying to d osomething I thoat may benefit to Lostpedia. And about the SysOps, I only stated that because some of them were strongly against these articles (eg.User:Santa who actually deleted all the articles).--Orhan94 10:19, 16 June 2008 (PDT)

Main Characters Portal

Hi there. The key is pretty clear. Alive is alive. Deceased is deceased. The show's intention was to make us believe that Jin is dead. All opinions and theories must be left out of the article. Please refer to the Portal talk page for further clarification. --Uncertainty 08:55, 18 June 2008 (PDT)

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree. If you have an outside source that says Jin's fate is to be determined, then I completely understand. Otherwise, you can't say that "it was the writers' intention to leave us on a cliffhanger as to Jin's fate." I honestly believe that he's alive too, but that's just me. It is my theory. Seasoned Lost fans like us have come to question everything. But we shouldn't overthink Jin's current status as given by the show. We need to go by what happened in the episode. He was last seen on a boat in a giant fire ball. That implies 'Deceased' to the average viewer. Lostpedia is a resource for everyone. To inject our own opinions into articles would be wrong. --Uncertainty 09:30, 18 June 2008 (PDT)
Hardcore Lost fans like us can make assumptions about everything, but I think we have a certain responsibility to the public who uses Lostpedia as a reference to not put our opinions into the articles. I cannot stress this enough. There's has been no evidence that Jin is alive that has not been refuted (see the Portal talk page), and the implication of Jin last being on a boat that exploaded with at least 20 pounds of C4 is that he's dead! Once again, I personally believe he is alive, but if it's a twist that he IS alive, then allow it to be a twist. Also, if you have that article you previously mentioned, I'd like to see it. --Uncertainty 10:09, 20 June 2008 (PDT)

Jin's fate

I was reading the talk between you and Uncertainly, I don't mean to be nosy and yes I do agree with you that Jin wasn't on the deck, but no one was seen on it probably because it was a computer image (boat blowing up), but yeah Jin's fate should be unknown. He was very close to the edge, he knew boat would blow up, he could have jumped or thrown off by explosion (which took place in central part of the boat, which is where everyone else was last seen [Michael, crew, survivors] so they would be dead), but overall, Jin is definitley a ? --Mistertrouble189 09:53, 18 June 2008 (PDT)


Hey again haha, do you know how to create a redirect page? Because I made a page for Becky and if one were to type in Becky in the search, it would go to this page but there should be a page that could redirect them to either Becky or Becky Goodman. If you could tell me how, that'd be a great help =]--Mistertrouble189 12:02, 18 June 2008 (PDT)


Can't do it tonight. Can you ask Santa or somebody else? Robert K S (talk) 21:23, 18 June 2008 (PDT)

Question about Interviews

Hello Sam McPherson. I was just curious, how were you chosen to organize and present some of the interviews Lostpedia is doing? I would be interested in holding one myself, but I will be busy and unavailable for the next three weeks starting Monday. Thanks! -- #1LostFan  talk  contribs  Lost Wiki  21:45, 18 June 2008 (PDT)

  • Thanks for your input. I don't think I should start inquiring about this until I have plenty of time to do so. I'll contact Lost Soul in mid-July, when I should have more time to do something like that. For now, I'll just continue submitting questions for the interviews. Thanks again. -- #1LostFan  talk  contribs  Lost Wiki  21:54, 18 June 2008 (PDT)

Interview nav

  • Oh hey, sorry I've been so busy, I didn't have a chance to carefully look at the history and post a note to the editor(s) involved. You can go ahead and make the interview nav yourself if you want. Just go back into the history of the transcript template to pull out the old code. If you need help, I can get around to it this weekend. The interviews are really a great thing, and they really do need a nav. Sorry again I didn't have the time to make it immediately.-- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk  04:09, 19 June 2008 (PDT)
  • A single image to illustrate the interview would be a great idea. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk  18:44, 20 June 2008 (PDT)

Lanny Joon

No problem, will not touch it again. I didn't notice the previous undo. I routinely check the Orphaned Articles portal and saw it on the list, so I added to (what will be) the correct spot to correct this. Dharmacakra.png Kevrock   talk  contribs   15:45, 19 June 2008 (PDT)

Re:Man (Left Behind)

Hey, I ended it on no consensus cause there was no real favor in for or against I felt. Since the discussion had been on since March, I felt no new ground was being covered so ended it on no consensus. When this happens, it just stays as is unless new arguments are being proposed, or a reasonable amount of time has passed since the last stand-off as it were. If you wanna re-nominate it, that's cool, I was just trying to trim the fat from the large list of rename nominations at Category:Rename. --Nickb123 (Talk) 09:46, 21 June 2008 (PDT)

Done. Drop me a message when you're finished. Thanks, --Nickb123 (Talk) 09:55, 21 June 2008 (PDT)

LP Interviews

keep up the good work :D do you have any Main Cast actors on the list? ~ Phoénix _U_ _T_ _C_

it'd be awesome if you could get Alan Dale, but that's probably impossible ~ Phoénix _U_ _T_ _C_
oh yeah, I forgot he was on Monty Python!!! ~ Phoénix _U_ _T_ _C_
Zach Grobler would be awesome! ~ Phoénix _U_ _T_ _C_


Ok whats a sysop? and the redshirt is Dustin Watchman's charetere, whatever hes called lol --Rbfskywalker 08:36, 23 June 2008 (PDT) o i'd of thought that the site would be glad of the additon :S, can you tell me what I've done wrong, I feel realy bad and thid has realy put me off the site And on Plkrtn page it says I would be better to contact a differnt sysop :S --Rbfskywalker 08:59, 23 June 2008 (PDT)
Also ' I doubt the sysops would not take very kindly to this' mkaes no sense :) --Rbfskywalker 09:06, 23 June 2008 (PDT)

  • but you are not a sysop? so what rights do you have that I don't? I try and help you and you start saying i should not be contacting people, even though they said yes! You also mention be being off the site?! I do not think i should be treated like this! I might be less experinced than you but I feel i desurve a chance!
    • So basicly you are saying that I can't do it arn't you? --Rbfskywalker 09:17, 23 June 2008 (PDT)
  • I am sorry for losing my temper with you and Lost Soul but I would like you to know that you have put me off the site with the way you treated me. I was only trying to help the site. But the thing that gets me in you and him are not sysop's but you would do the interview in my place? I realy think you need to give other people a chance. I got realy excited about interviewing a cast member and you have realy disapointed me now. I just want you to know how I fell about this whole situation. --Rbfskywalker 09:32, 23 June 2008 (PDT)
  • Ok but can you answer my orginal question which I asked with one of the major redshirts, i won't say who i will leave it as a surpise, but as you can see from the message which the sent me: 'do you know who authorized the actors and actresses to do the interviews? lost is pretty strict about this sort of thing but i could do it i just need to know that its "lost approved" lol....let me know some details..'??? --Rbfskywalker 09:50, 23 June 2008 (PDT)

Yes it is Dustin --Rbfskywalker 09:56, 23 June 2008 (PDT) Yer but me being a interviewer hadn't been desied on eny or that, just my disagreement with you and lost soul, thats what bugs me --Rbfskywalker 10:19, 23 June 2008 (PDT)

  • Ok I have calmed down now. I do thought still think that the interview should not be lost over this as the scot/stece questions could be realy fun and Dustin has been in the show since the very begining, I have also had a small amount of contact with him before. Mayby we could do it together, come up with some questions toeghtwr, deside on them, then I could send them. Would you be intrested in this? --Rbfskywalker 10:32, 23 June 2008 (PDT)
  • The only reason I was going to contact him was that I have had past dealings with him but we could get the questions sorted and deside this later. You could change eny questions that I serjested and hace complete control --Rbfskywalker 10:40, 23 June 2008 (PDT)

Lost Magazines

I think making seperate articles is a great idea. The magazine page is currently lacking a lot of info on the magazines. I think it would also be good for seperate articles to contain various images from the magazines. I have most of the issues, so I'd love to help write them.
-- CTS  Talk   Contribs 15:15, 23 June 2008 (PDT)

Yeah, an infobox would be great. I have issues 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17 with me now. Also, what do you think we should title the pages? Should we title them , "Issue One", "Issue Two", etc or should we title them by the headline on the cover? -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 15:20, 23 June 2008 (PDT)
Yeah, I was thinking that too. The infobox can say what issue it is. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 15:23, 23 June 2008 (PDT)
I like it a lot. Great work! -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 15:28, 23 June 2008 (PDT)
Okay. I think Lost: The Official Magazine page should just desribe the magazines in general and also have links to the seperate magazines. Should we start creating the seperate articles for each issue now? -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 15:32, 23 June 2008 (PDT)

This link from the DarkUFO site has a lot of scans from the magazines if you wanted to upload any. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 15:42, 23 June 2008 (PDT)

Okay, I'm not sure how to upload images like that. I don't think the articles need a ton of images though. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 15:46, 23 June 2008 (PDT)
Yeah, I agree. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 15:54, 23 June 2008 (PDT)


Hey, I created a new nav box for the magazines. It needs some clean up, but looks pretty good. What do you think? -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 11:27, 24 June 2008 (PDT)


Didn't realize you added the merge tag, I thought I caused the editing conflict and just copied and pasted. Sorry. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jamster (talkcontribs) 2008-06-25T13:54:41.


Try asking Plkrtn to get the interview directory advertised in a top-site banner like that one interview was for several weeks. Robert K S (talk) 19:49, 25 June 2008 (PDT)


Because of her decision for leaving Lost, Mira Furlan a.k.a. Danielle would be a good person to interview because we were left with a lot of unanswered questions about her and her character?--Orhan94 07:21, 26 June 2008 (PDT)

Steve and Scott

So what's the deal? Is Scott Jackson (played by Dustin) dead and Steve Jenkins (once played by C. Bowman but now played by Dustin) alive? Castaway815 changed the status of him on several pages so it was really Steve dead and Scott is alive?--Mistertrouble189 17:37, 26 June 2008 (PDT)

  • Alright cool, that's what I thought, was just getting quite confused with this issue on who's dead, who's alive etc.--Mistertrouble189 17:43, 26 June 2008 (PDT)

It appears that Dustin never left the show, and Christian did. What this means seems to be in question. Sorry for the changes. --Castaway815 17:58, 26 June 2008 (PDT)


Sorry about that. I'm not trying to cause trouble. I hadn't seen any solid arguments about the ambiguity of her status and there hadn't been any discussion since last week. I'm trying to follow the template. I've tried to restart the conversation on the talk page and will end the edits until it's resolved. Obviously I would like to hear your input as you appear to be a seasoned member here. Thanks. --Uncertainty 18:10, 26 June 2008 (PDT)


I don't understand the issue. If you want to revert to an earlier version, view the history for the page, edit the version you want to revert to, and submit the older version of the page. You don't need an admin to easily rollback to any older page. Robert K S (talk) 18:29, 26 June 2008 (PDT)
