Sure I will. Thank you! :) —Iimitk 14:33, 8 March 2009 (UTC)


I'm happy for you to remove the oddly shaped one. I use it on my user page because I love that expression, but I'm not married to it in the article. I hope you are okay with the proxy section being pared down, but I think I made it clear in that section why that has to be so. We can't have mass speculation about this or that being a proxy. It belongs on the theory page. I, for one, do not think that there is anything else that is to be a proxy, and the speculations drive me nuts. It's like those that come up with wild theories and then tack on "oh, and time travel" as if that explains the theory, LOL. Anyway, glad to help. Let me know if I can chip in anything else. ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 17:26, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

  • It's pretty standard to reply on each others' talk pages, especially since you can watch it, and get an email notification when someone replies to you, as I did with your most recent reply. If you have your talk paged watched, you would get a notification that I answered you. Smiley emoticons smile I think the way you split the events up by the people is fine. Overall, it may need a bit more work to get it featured, but it's looking good. ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 18:35, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
  • I guess that's because really important conversations should take place on the article talk pages, whereas user talk pages are more for one-on-one conversations. *shrugs* ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 19:27, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Your signature

Greetings! If you would go back to your Preferences page and put a check mark in the box marked "Raw signature" (or something like that), it will keep all the code in your signature from showing up on pages. Thanks.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 16:57, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

First of all, I love the quote by Einstein.

I don't know the next step for certain. Usually, not checking the box is the culprit in these things. LP instructions -- and I'm not sure I know where to find them since we moved to Wikia -- used to say you needed two pages: /sig and /autosig. You would put the code for your page on /sig, put {{User:Iimitk/sig}} on /autosig and put {{SUBST:User:Iimitk/autosig}} into the space on your prefs. I have no idea why it would matter. I've been working in wiki for almost a whole year! If the previous doesn't work, two possibilities:

  • Start with a simpler signature (my first one was terrible)!
  • Ask a sysop, but don't try in the first couple of days after an episode airs because they're up to their hips in alligators.

Take care,

Thanks, I parked the link on my increasingly busy user page. Maybe (Ha!) I'll remember where I put it if the subject comes up again.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 18:26, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Jumping into conversations

From my perspective, jump on in any time you agree with me <grin>. Seriously, jump on in any time. If we wanted privacy, we'd use email. I have a fellow editor here, who also works as a fellow sysop on another wiki, with whom I "go off-line" all the time.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 20:10, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure that anyone my age (64) qualifies as cool, but thanks. <grin> I try to keep my cool, although there are some people (not including you) I find myself wanting to reach through my monitor and strangle... That would be a whole new form of cyber crime. I'm sure there are several people who would like to do the same to me. As long as we keep it civil, we succeed. With some minor exceptions, I don't do blogs, not even the LP blog. People seem to type things the wouldn't dream of saying in front of their mothers! I went back and looked at your contribs and think it's neat that you give a reason almost every time you change something. You're ahead of me on that. 'Nuff philosiphyin'--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 21:23, 27 March 2009 (UTC)


Thank you for your complaint. It is being discussed currently. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  21:14, 7 May 2009 (UTC)


Just when I think I'm beginning to understand... Thanks! <grin> --Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 18:23, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Re: Fork in the Outlet

Hey, I had the same thought as you, but several times the producers indicated it was the finale scene. Such as in the March 19th podcast:

Damon Lindelof: It will be up to you to decide what incident we were referring to once you've seen the two-hour finale. The rest of it is just people sitting around talking but then there's something that happens, right at the very end.

Carlton Cuse: An incident.

Damon Lindelof: Yeah. Speaking of which...the very end--

They then go onto discuss the contest and previous codenamed scenes. --Blueeagleislander 14:46, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

I understand what you mean, and hopefully some good discussion happens on the secret scenes talk page. --Blueeagleislander 07:54, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Re: Banned Template

It was just a joke by that user. I don't believe that he was ever banned by an administrator. It's just a joke that I doubt anyone would take seriously. I don't think the reputation of the wiki or the administrators is in any kind of danger. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  14:42, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Still, I wouldn't worry about it. It's not that big of an issue, and I don't believe that anyone will take the hyperboles in the user's ban template seriously. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  16:43, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
