I'm looking at replacing template image with a newer coded one. I am going to start working on the code soon. When I originally created that template it was just a rough idea, and the way it's coded is very rough and not the best way. I'm looking to create some new coding for it, so I may be changing it a bit and noticed you were working on cleaning it up. Just thought I'd let you know and ask if you had any suggestions for additions or changes. -Mr.Leaf 11:53, 9 August 2008 (PDT)

  • Cool, just about to do the first update, I've figured out how to have it automatically check if a category for the tag entered exists and add it to that if it does. That removes the need for about 100 tags in that list. I also have made it so only one list of all search tags is needed so when adding a tag you only have to update once. Both those things are hopefully going to make the template size smaller so it isn't as resource hungry and refreshes quicker. The next update I want to look into is more automated. The problem you speak of likely results from different capitalization. I want to see if i can figure out how to have it say add the image to the same category if you type claire or Claire for example which would help a lot and reduce the Improperly categorized images most likely. The first update I am adding as we speak so it should help a bit. -Mr.Leaf 12:31, 9 August 2008 (PDT)


well because we have the science team and the mercenary team articles I think we should also have a Kahana crew article so I coped the article on my sandbox so I could base the Kahana crew article on the articles about the science team and the mercenaries.--Orhan94 11:03, 10 August 2008 (PDT)

  • I don't know I'll create the article on my sandbox, I'll compare it to the Kahana article and if its to reudant I will not create it separately.--Orhan94 11:09, 10 August 2008 (PDT)

Sandbox Link

Sam -

It may not belong where I put it, but I didn't where else it could go. If there is a "user tools" page point me at it and I'll copy it over. I won't attempt to remove it from Ideas because I don't want my hand slapped <sigh>.

I love the fact that you asked Chau what name it was that he said on the video. However, I am not finding the question or answer in the transcript of the interview. Because of this, over at the Fuselage, it is being debated as to your credibility. Can you please add this question and answer to your interview?? Thanks!!!--Kansasgal 16:43, 13 August 2008 (PDT)

    • Here is a link to where it is being discussed. Thanks so much. Once again, THANKS for the confirmation of the name.

      • FYI.. It's me. I am using my desktop that I have not used in a long time. Laptop is in for repair. Longstory short... used old login on desktop and did not realize it was different. You deserve much credit for giving all of us obsessed with Lost the real name Chang used.--Kansasgal71 18:09, 13 August 2008 (PDT)

Well, to be perfectly honest, I was only on lostpedia for about 5 minutes anyway, I was a bit more interested in bebo and facebook!

  • Hey if this isn't advertising and what I did is, then I duno what is! Sorry beingbackcharlie I really like you but its just not fair.--Rbfskywalker 02:47, 18 August 2008 (PDT)


I didn't mention my site in it, how was it a advert? I wanted people to submit questions if they were interested, are you jealous or something? --Rbfskywalker 14:29, 15 August 2008 (PDT)

  • I'm tired of you treating me like I'm less than you. We are both at the same level on this site, so please treat me that way. I thought that people on the site might want to ask questions to someone who had not already been interviewed by the site, I have no dark motive behind what I am doing. And I was never not asked I was asked not to. I was trying to help the community here, one of the reasons I left the site full time was that people on the site were so mean! And are you watching every page I edit, I also think that that is a personal attack, you most definitely have something against me.

You all editors thing that Lostpedia is yours

and barely let someone to upload something on the site. You think that only your stuff is worth something (and my be of ypur friend) and you manage here a kingdom of yourself. I guess to get something on the page i need a favoritism.

--Yifaat 15:53, 17 August 2008 (PDT)--Y 15:50, 17 August 2008 (PDT)

Of course you will put yourself on the bright side

and justify yourself.

If you put this video on the page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tni4h7kRb-k you can put my to.

this video is stated to the information you already had in the video that on the page in a different, less concise way. but you decide to keep it there.

according to yours consideration ther is no plaese for "the a team" video to be on the page to.

I will write about what the editors doing here to the creators of Lost.

--Yifaat 16:17, 17 August 2008 (PDT)

let see you if this video will be proper for the page

let see you if this video will be proper for the page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMqx8pjXakg that video don't have any connection to the video that on the page.

Let see what excuse will be make up now.

--Yifaat 16:31, 17 August 2008 (PDT)

of course, i said that you will have an excuse

you rude, and imperious and think that Lostpedia is yours and i willn't be quiet about that and i will take care that an article will be publish about your discrimination and favoritism and i will write to the creators of Lost about this.

there are things on the page that are not necessary to, but you keep them there and i making a bet it because favoritism. there works are not better then mine, not invested then mine and not necessary then mine.

to put rhe video in my page is not worth and it's like you tell me: " to stuck it".

I think you are jealous

and you just excuse yourself.

I decide to implement what i said and take care that an article will be publish about Lostpedia's discrimination and favoritism, and i will write to the creators of Lost about this.

any thing you say will not change my point becouse you will always justify yourself and willn't agree that i will put my video on the page. I Believe on what that i said and as long as you wont agree about my video i will not think differently.

I think you need to look at your history

When I posted that he deleted the link to his Bebo, so it was. And there is no need to be nasty. --Rbfskywalker 04:21, 18 August 2008 (PDT)

General suggestion for interviews

Hey, I was a little bit disappointed after reading the latest interview with Jorge that no question was asked if he knows Lostpedia. I strongly feel that the very first (or last) question of every Lostpedia interview should ask something like "Do you know Lostpedia? If yes, to what extend do you use it?". Anyway, thank you for the work on the interviews. --MacCutcheon Talk? 05:02, 19 August 2008 (PDT)

Okay, thank you! --MacCutcheon Talk? 11:38, 20 August 2008 (PDT)

New interviews

Since you have contacted few Lost main cast members, could you ask them for contact details for other main cast members. Do you think you could so this, because it will speed up the contacting process as well as the range of contacted characters.--Orhan94 09:25, 19 August 2008 (PDT)

  • OK. --Orhan94 15:04, 19 August 2008 (PDT)

IMDb Pro

Do you have it? It could help Heroes Wiki get some great interviews if you do. I am not trying to promote Heroes Wiki or anything like that but as no one at the site has it it is harder to contact certain people and I was wondering, if you do have it, if you would mind maybe getting some contact details for me? I'm sure you will find something wrong with me asking but I thought a bit of wiki to wiki support might be nice. --Rbfskywalker 03:36, 21 August 2008 (PDT)

  • We are. I alone have got 46 people to agree to interviews. --Rbfskywalker 04:38, 21 August 2008 (PDT)
    • Hey no need to me rude I was trying to be nice!!! For me thats not enough, I would want to interview all of the cast. --Rbfskywalker 04:42, 21 August 2008 (PDT)

Episode receptions

I saw that you deleted my first reception on the "The Shape of Things to Come", but by mistake I added it again, could you make a list of accepteble sourrces on the talk page for Episode Receptions so users could know which sources to use and which not. I used the receptions used on Wikipedia so I really don't which are major sourcesand which not.--Orhan94 14:17, 24 August 2008 (PDT)


I really hope so! I was reading the article about it on wikipedia and it seems to be around the same genre as lost. Of course, it will never beat Lost. Lost will always be the God of all shows in that genre. At least Fringe is at 8 Est. Which is prime-time. It seems to be a cross of The X-Files, Altered States, and The Twilight Zone. (All great shows). Do you think they will include easter eggs from lost on that show? Cheers, --JPB. T. C. E. 19:07, 27 August 2008 (PDT)

Excellent! Now I will definitely commit myself to watch it :). Surprisingly, I haven't seen any commercials on Fox. Hopefully It won't show the same time as the re-runs of Lost on sci-fi channel. About two weeks then (Countdown to another awesome show has officially began for me at least).--JPB. T. C. E. 19:14, 27 August 2008 (PDT)
Huh seems like all the great show happen in september. I might watch heroes too since I heard from a lot of people thats its a good show. Right now I went quickly to check my mail and I got a big surprise that brightened my day: An autograph from Michael Emerson! :] --JPB. T. C. E. 19:35, 27 August 2008 (PDT)
I guess I will try mailing Daniel later. So far the best actor that I got an autograph from was Marvin Candle. He sent me an 8x11 autographed photo with a small description along with a separate letter asking me if it was ok. You should ask him by emailing him (find his email on his website). After Daniel, I will try mailing Hurley, because its just not right to have already two autographs but not have Hurley's. --JPB. T. C. E. 19:43, 27 August 2008 (PDT)
Yea, nice job on the interviews. Its really hard to get celebrities to agree. Because you have now got me into Fringe, I have set up a new wiki dedicated solely to the TV show Fringe. Click here to see it. --JPB. T. C. E. 21:38, 27 August 2008 (PDT)
It looks great, but It has a lot of advertisement. At first I was hosted by Wikia but then I got tired of the skin and the massive advertisements so I set up my own server. This way I have access into the server, so I can upgrade/install extensions whenever I want. Hey, Would you want to switch into my domain? I'll give you bureaucratic permissions, access to the server (An FTP Account), an email like admin@fringe.vindemi.com. This way all that advertisement wouldn't be here and We can easily import all the users and pages with the import feature from mediawiki. Tell me what you think...Maybe if the site picks up as lostpedia picked up I can register a domain like fringepedia.com. Cheers, --JPB. T. C. E. 12:42, 28 August 2008 (PDT)
Awesome! As soon as you join, Ill change your permissions and give you an ftp account and an email account. --JPB. T. C. E. 14:18, 28 August 2008 (PDT)
Ok, so I gave you bureaucratic permissions. Tell me what you want your email address to be and the name of your ftp account. --JPB. T. C. E. 14:21, 28 August 2008 (PDT)
Hey sam, I wanted to tell you that the site has picked up significantly. Are front page is awesome, DocH made a logo, and we are working on a skin. --JPB. T. C. E. 18:02, 29 August 2008 (PDT)
One last thing, I have moved the site to its own domain name at fringewiki.info If you are still interested...--JPB. T. C. E. 21:49, 4 September 2008 (PDT)

Cast/crew crossovers

Hey man, can you add Damon to the crew for Crossing Jordon, he was a writer and producer. I'd do it myself, but I am great at destroying columns and rows and such. --Gluphokquen Gunih 19:54, 30 August 2008 (PDT)

Tent images

Hi Sam. I'm trying to refurbish the beach camp article. I'm adding a table of the various residences on the beach camp, and I'm searching for pictures of the survivors' shelters. Do you think you could help me find pictures of the survivors' tents? I've been looking, but haven't found many great screencaps. If you can help, that'd be great. If you find any screencaps of the tents, just add them to the bottom of this page. Let me know if you can help. Thanks! -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 16:32, 1 September 2008 (PDT)
