• Hey Pyramidhead, I was just wondering why you change some of the days from like (Days 93-) to (Days 93-94). I'm not sure I understand the logic behind you doing it? ~ Unfortunate
    • Only two days have gone by. To me, it's clearer to establish that in the title, so's not to confuse anybody. --Pyramidhead 16:10, 15 February 2008 (PST)


  • I deleted the Miles Nav you made. Nav bars are meant for very complex ideas or relationships between numerous different people, places, things, episodes, etc. They are used when a given character or plot or whatever has a great number of articles relating to it. 3 articles does not constitute a nav bar especially for a character with only 1 FB scene. If Miles gets more FB time in the future a nav may be in order but for now, it's not. If we made navs for every character we could relate an ep too and a person from their past we'd have dozens of navs on most articles, something that is cluttering and not need. Hope you understand. If you have any questions let me know. -Mr.Leaf 21:11, 8 February 2008 (PST)

Image uploads

Hi, regarding your recent uploads of season 4 character promo pics, if you have a new version of a photo to upload (especially if it's the exact same shot but different aspect ratio, resolution, or what have you), please upload the version over the older version. You can do this by clicking "Upload a new version of this file" on any image page. This way, we don't have duplicate image files, and there is also a history stored of all previous versions of the image, any of which can be reverted to any point. Thanks! Also, I was wondering why you chose those new versions; most of them have the "Credit Lily Ford" watermarks on them. I think those are less desirable than the ABC watermarks (which are translucent and from the official source, anyway). Other than the different watermarks, most of the images don't seem any different. -- Graft   talk   contributions  08:38, 13 February 2008 (PST)

  • I see you uploaded character promo pics to separate files again (this is the third round of those images!) I'm off to go find the old ones to delete them (btw, please mark unused images with {{delete|REASON HERE}}) and re-categorize the new ones (the way to do the ones you uploaded would be, for example, {{image|copy=promo|season 4|Juliet}} or {{image|copy=tvs|4x03|Charlotte}}). -- Graft   talk   contributions  23:19, 26 March 2008 (PDT)
    • I tried uploading to the same filename, but for some reason it doesn't update the images. If it's a different size image, it'll just show the old one really stretched. Sorry I didn't mark them, I'll do that next time. --Pyramidhead 23:30, 26 March 2008 (PDT)
They don't update right away, they take sometimes about a day, and can also not update just because of your browser cache. For instance, I re-uploaded Image:1x02 Sawyer Close Up.JPG yesterday, and it didn't appear correctly until today. This method is much preferred, even if they appear stretched for a little bit, because we can preserve the image histories, talk pages, and not have to switch out all the pages on which they appear. -- Graft   talk   contributions  23:37, 26 March 2008 (PDT)
Ok. This will probably be my last update to those pics, just wanted to get rid of the watermark and make them the same size. Thanks for the tip! --Pyramidhead 23:49, 26 March 2008 (PDT)
  • Why are you uploading different versions of station logos to different files? -- Graft   talk   contributions  23:38, 28 March 2008 (PDT)
    • These ones match the background color of the infobox, so there's no white patches around the logo. It's so the original ones can with the white background can still be used on the logos page.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pyramidhead (talkcontribs) .


Out of curiousity, what's the deal with resizing all the character infobox images from 250px to 248px? Robert K S (talk) 20:05, 25 March 2008 (PDT)

That was a goof. I saw that someone's (Kate's?) picture was that size and assumed they all were. Sorry about that, I'll fix it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pyramidhead (talkcontribs) 2008-03-25T22:06:43.
Okay... next question... why are you italicizing somes names in some nav templates? Robert K S (talk) 20:52, 25 March 2008 (PDT)
I'm italicizing everyone who's died on the show, just an idea I had. I can change it back if you want. --Pyramidhead 20:53, 25 March 2008 (PDT)
Yes, I just realized what you were doing. I don't necessarily disagree with your action, but I disagree entirely with how you're taking it. When you come across big changes on a wiki, the proper thing to do is to discuss first, then implement. If your idea is good, it'll get consensus, and the upshot of this is that you won't have to do all the work--others will join in and assist. So, please stop making changes that affect numerous articles, and post your idea at an appropriate talk page first. (If you don't know where to go, you can always post to Talk.) Cheers, Robert K S (talk) 20:57, 25 March 2008 (PDT)


Hey Pyramidhead - Robert said to bring this issue to you (its about character infoboxes). I've noticed that some characters have all seasons "crossed-out" at the bottom of their infoboxes (see: Keamy, Omar, Dave) - why is this? Is there any way we can help insure links for them being provided on the Character appearances page like other characters?--Overworkedirish 17:33, 29 March 2008 (PDT)

I'm actually not sure. I reused the code from the old Other Infobox so that if they have an entry on the Character appearances page and the Name field matches the span ID, then the link should redirect to their row in the particular season. It works for just about all the main characters, but not some of the freighter people. Gault and the science team all work fine, though. At first I thought it was somehow because their names don't have spaces in them, but Karl and Alex work. Maybe it just takes a while to update, like saving new pictures over old ones.--Pyramidhead 17:46, 29 March 2008 (PDT)
This is definitely not a cache issue. Sexy blue striped shirt girl also suffers from the anomaly. Robert K S (talk) 22:04, 29 March 2008 (PDT)
She's not in the appearances grid, though. By all rights, the links on Keamy and Omar's page should be working. --Pyramidhead 22:28, 29 March 2008 (PDT)
Where is the appearances grid and how does it inform the infoboxes? Cluelessly, Robert K S (talk) 22:33, 29 March 2008 (PDT)
Character appearances. Every row has a span for the character's name:
<span ID="KeamyS4">Keamy</span>
. If there's one for that character, then their infobox will have the link active which will direct to that row. Notice on Jack's page (or any other) that there's no code in the actual page for those links, it's done automatically. --Pyramidhead 22:36, 29 March 2008 (PDT)
But I think it runs in conjunction with Template:Character appearances Infobox Code. From what I can tell from the explanation, the season appearances have to be inputted on that template, and then it will generate strikes and links in the appropriate seasons on the character's infobox, and the links will then go right to the character's spot on the table on Character appearances. -- Graft   talk   contributions  00:32, 30 March 2008 (PDT)
That seems to do the trick. I entered Keamy and Omar in that template and now the links work appropriately in their infoboxes, but characters who aren't on the character appearances page (like Sexy blue striped shirt girl) don't work with that format, since the links can't be generated to that page. -- Graft   talk   contributions  01:04, 30 March 2008 (PDT)

punctuation and quotes

Hey, Pyramidhead... can I ask a favor? Not to modify episode templates just to place commas and periods inside quotation marks. Wiki style is to keep punctuation outside of quotation marks, except where such punctuation is part of the title or quotation. Thanks for all the great edits... Robert K S (talk) 18:06, 2 April 2008 (PDT)

Episode synopsis edits

Hi. I was just wondering, is there a reason why you're removing "Real-time events" from episode articles? AFAIK, there hasn't been a change on LP:EMOS on this matter. Don't you think it should be discussed first? --     c      blacxthornE      t    

It just seems misleading to say that the episodes happen in "real time." To me, anyway, it makes more sense to divide between flashback and location. I can change it back. --Pyramidhead 12:37, 17 April 2008 (PDT)
That seems plausible, but it should be discussed, I think, before we change all episode articles. Someone might come up with an even better formula. --     c      blacxthornE      t     12:44, 17 April 2008 (PDT)

Character page timelines

  • I notice you've been correcting all the character pages in terms of which days each season was. Wouldn't it be simpler just to get rid of the days altogether? Season one, season two, etc, coupled with an episode credit at the end of each paragraph should suffice. If people want to know what days each season was they can check the timeline. Especially since it seems the timeline still has a bunch of controversy surrounding it. That said, why did we start dividing it by season anyway? Within the show the characters don't have a concept of what season of the shoe they are in. I thought the pre-island/island/post-island worked much better. Especially now with the flashbacks and flashforwards! It doesn't seem to make sense to divide character histories by the chronology of episodes aired when the episodes themselves jump back and forth within the chronology of the Lost universe. --Jackdavinci 21:58, 18 April 2008 (PDT)


Hi Pyramidhead, I reverted your move of discussion on the talk page of this article because that move would lose the 2008 part in the midst of the 2007 discussion (and this would be a separate poll than any concensus perceived before the canonicity was established by the enhanced episode of MKJ). I understand why you probably moved it, because the discuss on the article banner went to the old discussion. If you'll look at the talk page now, you'll see how by renaming the subject of the old section something other than "rename", and making sure the new discussion header is the only "rename" on the Talk page (archives excepted), solves any problems with the discuss link on the banner. :) -- LOSTonthisdarnisland 10:21, 19 April 2008 (PDT)

Song Infoboxes

  • Hey Pyramidhead - so I know you're savvy with the infobox coding and whatnot - I wanted to ask a favor. So, you know how Template:Infobox_Cast has the "IMDB Profile" option at the bottom? I'd like to have the same for Template:Infobox_Song, except with "Songfacts Profile." I looked into the code a bit, and I know that the way the IMDB thing works is that on each cast member page, the "IMDB #" is used. Well, Songfacts works the same way. See, for example, Strawberry Fields Forever (ID #116). Could you help me out with getting this in the coding? Thanks!--Overworkedirish 23:13, 26 April 2008 (PDT)

Removed UQ

Hi. I removed your question about why Staples speaks Korean, because:

  • She's a scientist, as in well-read. Moreover, she is an anthropologist, which means she is at least interested in different cultures.
  • She's free to speak any language she wants. We know that she also speaks French, but we didn't ask why.
  • It's fair to assume this (why she's learnt Korean) will not be resolved in the future, until it is.
  • It's more like a theory to assume that there was a special reason behind this.

You still didn't answer my question. Why are you insistent the article be named Erica but not Stevenson? Robert K S (talk) 20:06, 3 May 2008 (PDT)

I didn't see the "son" on there. Go ahead and change it. --Pyramidhead 20:08, 3 May 2008 (PDT)
Nope. 'Cause I'm in favor of Erika Stevens.  :-) Robert K S (talk) 20:09, 3 May 2008 (PDT)
I'm confused. Where did "Stevenson" originally pop up, anyway? --Pyramidhead 20:12, 3 May 2008 (PDT)
Where did "Erica" pop up? Robert K S (talk) 20:12, 3 May 2008 (PDT)


Okay, it was my fault. :) Omar didn't appear in the last episode. Just the injured soldier was very similar to Omar. :) At any rate for me. --Norden 10:45, 4 May 2008 (CEST)

It's cool, don't worry about it. :) --Pyramidhead 01:55, 4 May 2008 (PDT)

The Other 48 Days

It says that the flashback is from the POV of the tailies, surely this means the TAILIE characters...? Not being sarcastic but then if no one is credited with the episode of a flashback, why is it COMPLETELY a flashback??? We see Ana Lucia killing Goodwin, which is obviously her centric, Eko killing the two men, Libby putting bodies to rest etc etc... [[user:01lander|01lander|2008-05-14T18:41:27}}

Ok well i'll do that then yeah? I just don't see why, if it is completely a flashback, no characters are credited with the episode... [[user:01lander|01lander|2008-05-14T18:41:27}}

As I said, it's not one person remembering/experiencing the events. It's a narrative set in the past. The episode page refers to it as a flashback episode for the tailies for the sake of simplicity. --Pyramidhead 03:42, 15 May 2008 (PDT)
I agree that the Other 48 Days should not be listed as Eko-centric, Ana-centric, Libby-centric, etc. It is a tailie-centric as a whole. Otherwise I guess we should put "There's No Place Like Home, Part 1" as Aaron-centric since it's an O6 FF and Aaron is one of the O6! I agree with Pyramidhead on this and think the tailes' pages shouldn't have this listed as a centric ep. --CTS 18:12, 24 May 2008 (PDT)


I notice you created the articles for the reporters from "There's No Place Like Home, Part 1". If you're able to tell them all apart, could you edit the There's No Place Like Home, Part 1 transcript so that dialogue for each one is being spoken by their casting designations ("BLONDE REPORTER", etc.)? Robert K S (talk) 08:09, 16 May 2008 (PDT)


I noticed that before the episode aired, you created articles for the actors and characters listed in the press releases from the episode. Could you please not do this? This makes it tedious for actual information about the characters to be created, because they have to go through the redirects. Thanks. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  12:16, 16 May 2008 (PDT)

Episode names in italics in infoboxes

Please don't embark on this project until you've gotten some semblance of consensus for it. Robert K S (talk) 23:23, 3 June 2008 (PDT)

General consensus

Hello Pyramidhead. Before you change the Season 1, Season 2, Season 3, and Season 4 pages from character appearances to credited cast, please ask for a general consensus on the change in the article's talk page. I don't agree with switching to credited count and I think it should stay at appearances. Before implementing a change like that, please ask for general consensus on a talk page. Thanks! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by CTS (talkcontribs) 2008-06-08T00:02:51.

Dead/Alive statuses

Since you undid both of my edits, perhaps this is a better place to ask. Several characters have been revealed to be dead in flashforwards. I adjusted Elsa and Nadia accordingly. Is there some guideline for how such flashforward deaths are meant to be handled? Are flashforwards not considered to be part of the show's present-day timeline (i.e. these people aren't dead yet, even if they will die in the "future")? I'd appreciate some clarification. Cheers, -Jslost 18:14, 18 June 2008 (PDT)

There's no consensus yet that I know of. Right now, the practice seems to be indicating that the person is alive, and adding the date of death below, so it's clear that it eventually will happen. --Pyramidhead 18:16, 18 June 2008 (PDT)
Then...what's the point of even including a status? -Jslost 16:07, 19 June 2008 (PDT)
What? The status is whether the person is alive or deceased at the current place in the story. Not whether they'll be alive or deceased at some arbitary point in the future. If that were our basis, then every character on Lost would be deceased. In any case - anyone who has died in a flashforward will, at some point, have their status changed as soon as the current, present-time story has moved past the date that they died. --Pyramidhead 18:44, 19 June 2008 (PDT)


Just wanted to say, good work on the Cast crossovers page. Keep it up! =] -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  18:01, 13 July 2008 (PDT)

Just wondering how you get all those. IMDb? Your general knowledge? Some other site? --Blueeagleislander 18:23, 17 July 2008 (PDT)
IMDb and a lot of free time. I was bored that day, what can I say :) --Pyramidhead 21:34, 17 July 2008 (PDT)
You completly messed the page up. I spent hours doing the TV show cast members in alphabetical order. WTF did you do? Why did you remove names? Ugh.

Casting Parts

I may be talking to the wrong person, but I believe you were the one who added all the casting part details such as "Mr so-and-so: early 50s, indian, wears glasses", stuff like that right? Well Santa requested that the source for this infomation be posted onto the pages otherwise they'll have to be removed.--Mistertrouble189 10:09, 11 October 2008 (PDT)

O6 conspiracy

Why did you add a link to the O6 nav, to an article called The Oceanic Six: A Conspiracy of Lies, when there is no such page?--Orhan94 00:59, 24 October 2008 (PDT)

Because it's an in-universe documentary that adds new characters and locations. Someone will have to start it eventually. --Pyramidhead 19:00, 24 October 2008 (PDT)

Season infobox

Hi Pyramidhead. I noticed you changed the infobox to include the cast as well as characters. I think it should only include characters, since including both lengthens the nav box. Also, it's kind of redundant since it is already on the page. Thoughts? -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 18:36, 22 November 2008 (PST)

Reformatted to list it in the center like centric episodes. It's redundant either way since it's listed in the article, so we might as well be thorough. --Pyramidhead 18:37, 22 November 2008 (PST)
Before making major changes to the template, such as deleteing the "slogan" section, please discuss it on the Template Talk page. Thanks. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 19:13, 22 November 2008 (PST)

Grandfather Shephard

Pyramidhead, you cannot redirect a page (Grandfather Shephard) to a new page (Christian's father) unless a sysop moves it. The history of the page cannot be moved unless the entire page is moved. I understand your reasoning for the rename, but in the future, wait for a consensus, and then ask a sysop to move the page. I moved the page back to Grandfather Shephard, and you can call for a rename on that page. Thanks. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 10:48, 13 December 2008 (PST)

Locke's First Name

Greetings- Did you have a better version of my question about why Widmore can't coerce Ms. Hawking?--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 00:20, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

There's no basis to ask it. What evidence is there that Widmore even knows she exists? --Pyramidhead 09:05, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Because Widmore used to have a position of authority (Ben's predecessor?) on the Island; Ben apparently didn't have to figure out who Ms. Hawking is.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 13:41, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Then by that logic, you might ask the same question of Jill. And where was it stated that Widmore was an Other? --Pyramidhead 19:38, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
The word Other was not used, but Widmore accused Ben of taking what was his. And Jill is portrayed as an operative, not a "discoverer"--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 20:00, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Beside the point. The fact is, we don't know anything about the relationship Widmore and Hawking may or may not have - for all we know, she might actually be on his side. If there was a scene of them together, there might be a solid basis to ask this question, but as there wasn't, I don't think it's necessary. --Pyramidhead 20:18, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Use U.S.-style dates on Lostpedia

Since Lost is a U.S. television production the convention on this wiki has been to use U.S. styles for spellings, dates, punctuation, etc. whenever the rules differ. I noticed you've been modifying some U.S. styles to British styles. I think you should rather be doing the opposite--whenever you find British style dates, make them U.S. style. Thanks!

Eloise Hawking character appearance

Hawking is shown in episode 17, (she is in the picture with brother campbell) of season 3 so I would appreciate if you would stop changing it to her not appearing in this episode.--Czygan84 04:05, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, in a badly photoshopped picture. Not in the flesh. No deal. --Pyramidhead 07:06, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Re: Flashbacks 5x07

I have no problem with your changes and agree with it. There seems to be problems with this site tonight as making one little change is reverting other's previous changes as well. --Makiwolf 08:38, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Lockes appearance

While I agree with almost all of your changes the one change I dont agree with is that you have lumped dream or hallucination with "alive after their status was suggested as dead". Being a hallucination and coming back to life are two completely diffrent things. We should either create a new category for "appears alive after their status was suggested as dead" or just list him as appearing on island with lines because it would seem that locke will continue to appear on the island as he seems pretty alive (hallucinations and visions dont need to eat to continue appear and locke was seen eating) and he shouldnt be credited as a hallucination from now until the end of the show.

just wanted to avoid the confusion.--Czygan84 00:28, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

episode numbers

I think you are jumping the gun a little bit with the episode renumbering. There's three different ways of numbering episodes - maybe they should all be reflected: "There is no spoon" was the 99th episode by airing, 104th by hour, and 102nd episode by production number. Just saying something was the X numbered episode is too unspecific since there is no one universal definition of what "episode" means. --Jackdavinci 04:15, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

I think it's important to be consistent with the most recent "official" numbering scheme we get. At the moment, that is the press release for 5x14. --Pyramidhead 04:16, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Bens appearance

Ok this is getting ridiculous I have edited this and cited reasoning with supprot multiple times. While Ben may not speak in present time in episode 7 he does have lines. Now here is what the rules say regarding the shade of gray:

Character appears in episode with no lines (that can be heard or are subtitled). If appearance is after the character's death it means they appeared as a corpse

where in that sentence does it say anything about when the lines occur,present, past it doesnt matter; ben does have lines the rules say Character appears in epsiode with no lines so that doesnt fit Ben for episode 7. When you make edits you need to refer to the rules as well as the history page to se why someone is changing your edits, because i have cited the rules every time ive made this edit. --Czygan84 00:05, 23 March 2009 (UTC)


I've been wanting the season finales to be separated into two halves for a long while now, and I'm so glad you've got discussion going on in each of the finale pages.

Changing the rules

As seen above i sent you a message regarding an edit war regarding Bens appearance in 5x07 and I stated a valid argument backed up by facts and the rules stated at the top of the page. Well instead of commenting back and stating your point you decided to go in and change the rules to fit your argument and your own personal desires. Well ive undone your change and wanted to let you know that you dont get to just go and change the rules whenever you please thats not how this site works. When you want to change the rules you go to the dissucion of the article and discuss the rule change you want and if you get a consensus to agree with you then you change it. --Czygan84 02:43, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

All I did was clarify them. It's always been the case that blue indicates a death in the present-time storyline, and that gray indicates that a character appears on the Island without any dialogue - trumping whatever they did in a flashback or a flashforward. Using blue for Abbadon, for instance, makes no sense - his death occurred even before the first flashforward in "Through the Looking Glass, Part 1"; just because we now see it happen doesn't mean anything. --Pyramidhead 03:02, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
You werent clarifying them you changed them and if you want to change them then you discuss it you dont just make changes to something as important as the rules on your own. Also seeing as how quickly you responded to this message you must have read my previous message above regarding bens appearance in 5x07 in which i refrenced the rules to support having his color solid black rather than gray but instead of debating you went and changed the rules to fit your argument, how convenient. --Czygan84 03:36, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
and just for your future refrence it hasnt always been the case that lue indicates a death in present time story EX: jae lee; and I had a look on the discussion board today and it seemed like everyone disagreed with you on the status of blue yet you went ahead and changed it anyway. Just so you know the character appearance page isnt your own personal toy everyone has opinions and they need to be taken into account when making a change. If everyone disagree with you about something it meens you dont get to make the change. So please dont let this happen again. Because i will report how you disregard everyone elses opinions in favor of your own to a sysop --Czygan84 15:38, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Season 5 Promo Image

Since you were the one marked as updating the image at Image:Season5promo-wide.jpg, I thought I'd let you know that I started a discussion there about what lostpedia should do when they change the promo image mid-season. Clamshell 18:34, 27 March 2009 (UTC)


That one 10-second clip does not make it a Libby-centric episode. By those criteria, Because You Left would be Pierre Chang-centric, because of the opening clip. --Managerpants 02:38, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

RE: The other 48 Days

That make since my bad and thanks for finding the evidence for me. --Czygan84 16:59, 4 April 2009 (UTC)


Sorry I gave you a block, but once I noticed what you were doing, it was the only quick way to stop an edit war until the policy decision is decided. Your block will end tonight, but I'll be happy to extend it if you go back and make reverts on article pages before we can get this episode numbering issue squared away. User:CTS and I are currently hammering out the details on a site-wide policy vote. Let the record reflect that the block was for procedural convenience and is not a black mark on your record as a valued editor. Thanks for your understanding.  Robert K S   tell me  20:47, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Again, I apologize. I had the option of either leaving you a message and hoping you'd see it, or doing the easy thing and stopping the edits using the tools. Your edit record didn't lead me to trust that you'd stop even if you got the message--you tend to operate pretty unilaterally when you are convinced that what you are doing is the right thing. Of course, if we had to form a committee each time a major improvement was to be made, some changes would never get done. But in this case, you were insisting on a pretty big reversal of the status quo (i.e., one that changed a long-established precedent and affected every episode article), and so I thought it would be less work for everyone if we just cooled it and let this be worked out methodically. If you tell me that I can trust you stop and discuss when you get a talk message, then next time I will simply leave a message. Feel free to offer your remarks regarding the sandboxed policy vote page, on my talk page.  Robert K S   tell me  05:53, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

While you're working on the episode infobox

Maybe you can find a way to use conditionals [1] so that the link to episode images category doesn't appear if the season and episode number arguments are undefined (or improperly defined), as is the case on the template page itself, and also on the Lost Moments page.  Robert K S   tell me  06:31, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Episode sorting

Hey, could you take a look at Category:Episodes and Template:Infobox Episode? Robert K S and I couldn't get "This Place Is Death" to sort properly in that category. See my messages for him here. Thanks. -- Graft   talk   contributions  05:44, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it is absurd

The regionality of the phrase (which can still be debated, regardless of the message board you found) makes it unusual for Miles to use it. It is absurd to consider this a blooper or continuity error. Just because he's not as likely to use it doesn't mean that it's a mistake. In particular, seeing as how a significant portion of language usage and development is dependent upon one's parents and the usage in the home, and given that we know nothing about Miles' mother's upbringing (with regard to region), it is assumptive at best and pedantic at worst to consider this an error on the part of the writers. Learn what's appropriate to say where before posting. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Daniel1302 (talkcontribs) 2009-04-17T06:51:00.

Your timeline edits

Given the clarification in the clip show, it seems clear that Ajira took off in 2008 and landed on the Island in 2007. We know the plane and everyone on it experienced a time flash.  Robert K S   tell me  15:50, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

A jump back a year? If it was really something that complex, I think they might have made it clearer in the recap show. As it is, "in 2007" could go either way. Regardless, though, the flight took off in 2008. --Pyramidhead 15:54, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
The recap show is for average viewers with just a few clarifications thrown in for the real nuts like us. Average viewers don't care about whether it's 2007 or 2008--it's just "present day, more or less". I don't see why a jump back a year is any more complex a thing to comprehend than Jin's jump forward a few weeks after the Monster got Montand.  Robert K S   tell me  15:59, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Please use edit summaries

I can never tell what your intentions are with some of your edits. I don't want to revert what seems like a mistaken deletion of a line from the Daniel nav because you probably have a plan for it, but it would really help me if I knew what your plan was, and by typing just a couple of words in the edit summary, you'll help to prevent confusion. Thanks...  Robert K S   tell me  06:25, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Previously on Lost

While it's good to be bold when it comes to editing, implementing large-scale changes across episode articles (like adding the previously on Lost to synopses) should be brought up at Lostpedia:Ideas to gauge user consensus. -- Graft   talk   contributions  05:33, 2 May 2009 (UTC)


I noticed you changed 5x15 to a non centric episode. Well it was voted on and it was decided that it was a Richard episode so in order not to confuse anyone you need to leave it as richard if you dont think it is than vote against it on the talk pg but again your opinion doesnt override 30+ others user opinions. If you dont know then look at th S5 nav box because only sysops can edit that so it is usually correct. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  00:06, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Linking to episodes

Can you please use the Template:Ep system in order to link to episode titles please, instead of manually entering them. As these will display the correct episode name. Thank you. -- Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  11:30, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Silent Hill Wiki

I apologize in advance if this doesn't pertain to you in the slightest, but it seems you share a name, formatting and all, with one of the current Admins of Silent Hill Wiki. If you are indeed that same Pyramidhead, we really need your help. Again, I apologize if this doesn't pertain to you.

Thanks in advance. --The Good Man 22:09, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Character appearances (locke/nemesis)

Just wanted to let you know why i reverted your edits in the character appearances page. First a disscusion took place where the consensus was (and there were abosolutely NO oblections) to include lockes appearances as the "nemesis" as purple. Secondly another disscusion happened where it was decided to keep the nemesis off the main chacter list until we get more info about him. For the one hundreth time look at talk pages before making edits the disscusion regarding lockes appeances in 5x11 and 5x12 is on the character appearances talk page so theres no excuse. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  03:16, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Source of current Juliet (season 5) picture?

Hey Pyramid I was just wondering where this picture[3] was found? I have never seen that promo of Elizabeth for season 5 before. She looks so f*#$ing hot in that picture. So do you remember where you found it? --LOST-Frink 07:35, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

promo examples

I reverted your edits because the episodes aren't fanon. They just show how certain pages would look after my promotional material and spoiler policies (links in my signature) are implemented. Once the policies are implemented the page will be deleted. Thanks! cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 21:13, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

I changed the template because your page was showing up in the Episodes category where it has no business being. --Pyramidhead 21:15, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram reply It shows episodes. Unless you can get a sysop to agree with you, I request that you leave my page alone. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 21:19, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
What's the big deal? The current Infobox Episode automatically adds the episode to the category based on the season and episode number. All I'm doing is changing it to an identical template that does not list the page in that category. The page looks exactly the same as it did before, except now it's not appearing intermingled with actual episodes of Lost. --Pyramidhead 21:22, 10 August 2009 (UTC)


I've been putting them all at the end. I've done most of the main characters. I don't think it matters where they go. They don't show up on the page. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 22:21, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram reply I meant that where they go doesn't matter. As long as they're on the list thats what matters. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 22:27, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram reply Feel free to change it, I won't stop you. I'm copying and pasting, and it's easier to paste at the end. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 22:37, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Because You Left

Hi, Please write your reasons in the talk page before changing the info-box of this episode. The opening scene of Season 5 is an ongoing discussion, so just writing "There's no Chang in this episode" and cleaning the flashback and flashforward information would be unfair for the users who have been discussing this issue for months. We watched the scene from Chang's and Faraday's points of view, so according to the latest consensus it was a flashback of Chang and flashforward of Daniel. If you have any counter ideas, please just share and discuss in the talk page. Thank you very much. --Paintbox 12:05, September 14, 2009 (UTC)

s6 promo pics

Thanks for adding the Season 6 promotional photos. I was about to do it myself. If you run into any spoiler issues, I've got your back. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 02:07, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Season 6 promo photos

Hey, can you please keep the Sawyer one where he's looking at the camera? His hair is gross in the other one and sticking out and the pose is just awkward in general. Also, how can we keep yours and not these massive ones? --Alexisfan07 10 December 2009

Hi. Please see this before changing the portal images.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  03:07, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Promo Pictures

Hey thanks for putting up the new promo pics but one problem nobody really likes the way you changed them. Im not good at this so if you could fix the new ones that would be great. But im going to revert the old ones and please leave them that way beacause you are making changes that were disscussed and generally disliked by a majority.-- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  15:41, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Season 6 Promo Pictures

Hey, instead of starting an editing war, I thought reasoning over the two kinds of promo images would be the best solutions. I only uploaded a new versions of the promos where extra background space is cropped, and in some cases the characters are looking directly at the camera, instead of to the distance. What are you reasonings? Cheers,  ODK  Talk  Sandbox  22:08, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Yours are too long, and the sidebars are stretched out enough as it is; mine are the same size and general orientation that we've used for the last three seasons. Since the promo photos are copyrighted, we generally want to have them as low-res as possible. Also, I don't see how you can say yours have "better lighting" when they're the exact same photos. --Pyramidhead 23:25, December 14, 2009 (UTC)


Are you on 24 Wikia? If so, me to.--Station7 20:29, January 10, 2010 (UTC)


Stop the template:at business. Feel free to work on it after the premiere tomorrow.    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 01:48, February 2, 2010 (UTC)


Why is it suddenly not clear which one they belong to? In the first half, sure (though I am puzzled as to why we can't just use the same method we do with flashbacks-are flash-sideways special for some arbitrary reason, so that who it begins and ends with isn't a way to tell?), but it certainly is in the second half, where each one is clearly from somebody's POV. IE, we can clearly tell that Kate's escape is from her POV. We can tell that Jin & Sun checking in is from their POV. We can tell that Jack learning where his father's body is is from his POV. Each one in the second half is structured like a traditional flashback, and as such should be noted. --Golden Monkey 20:14, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Article type headers

I LOVE IT!!!! Superb choice of images too. I've put the CSS into the common.css file but where are you requesting that scripting go exactly? Let me know ASAP and I'll get it submitted so you can create a sandbox page. I'll note though, that it doesn't mean it'll definitely happen (I'd like it to personally) but it definitely needs testing, and putting past other users first. -- Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  23:21, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! The javascript code would go in Common.js. --Pyramidhead 00:13, February 4, 2010 (UTC)


For starters dont ever strikethrough my posts again. Secondly you can admit your wrong. Once again this site is not about Pyramidheads opinion and to hell with eveyrone elses. Also your smark remarks are uneccesary NEVER did i say i was an authority figure I had see an article from the producers, who created the whole show. I provided a source an even told people where to find the comment. Lastly if you actually read the comments youd see the producers dont like the term alternate being used the reality/timeline is meaningless the point remains they dont like the term alternate becuase it suggests one timeline/reality is not real. You have never cared about other user opinions and have continued to make edits that please only you. You an I have been through this before. But put all that aside I dont want an edit war, these arent my thoughts they are the creators of the shows thoughts. Just admit you are wrong. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  00:39, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Archived Footage

Stop editing appearnces in Season 5 to not include archived footage. They count as per the rules that even you have to follow. You have been warned to stop before so please stop now. Also when someone reverts your edits with explanation if you revert them back you must also explain why, because in this case you were in the wrong. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  04:29, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Infobox Character

Actually, Boring really is his real last name. His father was called Mel Boring, but he went by his mother's maiden name acting wise. Understandably. --Golden Monkey 00:56, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Really? I checked on Wikipedia and didn't see it there. Sorry about that! --Pyramidhead 01:09, February 11, 2010 (UTC)


Please stop changing the timeline name on pages from flash-sideway to alternate or parrallel. I know you dont like it but it really doesnt matter. Considering the last time I gave you proof you said the producers were not clear I suggest you listen to the latest audio podcast. The terms Alternate and parrallel (timeline or reality, doesnt matter which) are considered "downright offensive" to the producers. My opinion nor yours really matters, the producers have spoke. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  00:51, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

stop removing archived footage

Youve been told before but yet again you ignore everyone. So please stop removing achived footage, it has always counted I dont know why you think it would no longer count toward character totals. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  03:31, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Future Episode Articles

I realize you're just trying to help, but please do not create the articles for future episodes, especially before they air in the USA. Technically, by creating the article an hour ahead of the airtime, you have posted a spoiler. I typically watch on a 15 minute start-delay, so I handle the creation of the articles at that time and immediately lock them down. Thanks,    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 02:19, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

FS Appearances

Here we go again I dont know why im even leaving you a mesage beause 10 times out of 10 you ignore me and do what you want. But about your edits on character appearances they are ridiculous. You need to discuss it first you and one other user are the only ones making these edits and several users have undone them. Not only that but on almost every page on this site jack is listed as appearing in 102 episodes but on his page you have changed it to 101 why, because no one (outside of one user) agrees with you so no one fixes your mistakes. I tried to compromise with the trivia thing but instead you undo my edits and insult me. So heres some advice instead SPELLING IN ALL CAPS "DONT CHANGE THIS" bring up a discussion state your point and well see what happens if you are right you can make the change and instead of your "DONT CHANGE THIS" (which by the way i could put next to anything, but is meaningless w/out an argument or discussion) you could refer users to a talk pg and no one would change it. Discussions are good, do you remeber the whole archive footage argument? Well you made a discussion and you made a pretty good point, you were right that pg was for actors I was wrong so now people dont undo your edits on that pg. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  23:46, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

  • The best thing to do here is to get a consensus. Pyramidhead, please don't go about making these changes to pages unless a consensus is reached to do so. There are obviously people on both sides of the fence, and a consensus needs to be reached -- this is a collaborative wiki and the users have to discuss and give support for their opinion regarding this issue so that a consensus can be reached. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 04:17, March 5, 2010 (UTC)
