Regarding what you wrote on the page †Pazuzu, I'd appreciate if you would participate in the discussion I started on Talk:Graveyard. Thanks. --Cliff Burton Marco 13:06, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

My talk page

  1. It might be best, not to strike the whole text when I haven't even read it. If you need to strike, strike only parts that are your comments. I am not perfect, I might do it wrong in the future, therefore this is meant.. as (another suggestion), constructive critic. I will read it nevertheless, so you make it harder for me and others to read it.
  2. Marking sections as resolved... another suggestion.. add (resolved) behind the section headline, instead of replacing it. Same as above with the reading, here I will have to find the topic headline.
  3. If you need to decide to move a discussion to another page, please link to it. I do have to search for the page you moved it to. But better let me handle it, even if I do not respond immediately. People might read something into your actions. Fangs! --Cliff Burton Marco 23:07, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
Wow none of those ever even occurred to me. This is great advice! Thank you! --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 23:10, 13 December 2009 (UTC)


You edited both, is there a diff between him and †Bloodspawn? --Cliff Burton Marco 07:06, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes there were two. But that doesn't mean I didn't make a mistake anyway. I believe the original was small "s". I'll go check the edits, and my old records, to make double-sure.--Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 07:12, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Historic figure

I saw you put the line "Historic figure." to some of the characters. The line does not really say much. What about them? Is this something which could be done by using a category instead? With some explanation? Also, who thinks one is a historcal figure? You? Are there others? Should this be something which could be voted for on a seperate page? Historical figure nominees? Glad you're onboard again, Kumpel! ;) --Cliff Burton Marco 09:11, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

I was just sort of marking them so that someday later, when we are doing candidates for a category, I could find them by doing a search. I think Historic figures should be vampires who made significant changes to the landscape (for good or bad) and who are no longer in the city. Archangel would qualify, except he's still being played by me. Capadocious, however, does qualify because Robert no longer plays the game. If we were to start doing nominees, I would go down the list of characters and just start picking out names I recognize. Then I would go to the talk pages and say why I remember them. Other's I hope, would do the same. Michelle (Player of ophelia) is someone we should get in on this. She has kept written notes over the years. --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 18:55, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Status: DEAD

I replaced them with Status: Dead. It doesn't scream so much :) --Cliff Burton Marco 09:54, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

New Templates which might be come in handy for you

Oh I like this one, thanks cliff! --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 21:24, 1 January 2010 (UTC)


My response is on the 2002 discussion page. I hope this clears things up. :)



May I ask what the problem is with this clan page? As it is a clan page, there is a policy for that: RavenBlack_CityWiki:Specific_Case_Editing_Guidelines#Group_and_Group_Talk:_pages. If anyone of that clan has a problem with Clan Cap or AA and writes in an biased way, that's something we have to accept, as it is to accept how Archibald sees the world on his and his clan pages, right? --Cliff Burton Marco 08:10, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

I just read on the talk page that you think that "the page does NOT belong to the Ferry". Why is that? --Cliff Burton Marco 08:17, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

You said that only user pages and vampire pages were like that. If this now extends to clan pages, I will back down and apoligize.--Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 08:55, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
It says so from the beginning of that document, November 27, 2009. --Cliff Burton Marco 08:58, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Just tell me what you want, and I will comply.--Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 08:59, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

A Few Questions

First question, I am just not getting how to make a signature. I have read the page a couple times and my brain just isn't processing it. I have done it by hand, but isn't there a way to have it post automatically when you hit the signature button?

Second question, I have already made a few of the corrections on Lucius' page but how do I cross them off when the corrections are done?

I apologize for stupid questions, but I am very new at this and still trying to learn all the coding and stuff and I have bugged poor Marco enough. :) Thanks for any help you can offer. --Kenosha_Vamp 19:33 04 March 2010

No, didn't figure the signature out, just typed the whole thing in by hand and was hoping maybe there was an automatic way of doing it like on forums so I don't have to type it out every time. --Kenosha_Vamp 22:45 04 March 2010
That's so wierd. If you hit the sig button, it should do it autmagically...I'll make sure cliff is aware of this. --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 23:15, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Sig Help!!

I'm also having trouble with my sig, I've been reading the section on creating the template, but I'm still having trouble. I just don't understand what the instructions is talking about and I'm just having a hard time following it. Please help? :( I'll post my sig and show you why I need help. --PersefoneRadical 20:23, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

There's a difference in lower and upper letters. You created (and thus named) your existing Signature page User:PersefoneRadical/Sig. I took the liberty to fix it. --Cliff Burton Marco 23:44, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
Thank you Cliff, sorry for being derilect in my duties I was gone for the weekend. Sig looks great! --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 06:58, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the help!! --PersefoneRadical 18:13, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

You're both welcome. --Cliff Burton Marco 00:21, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Any suggestions?

Hey there, Arch. Are there any suggestions to enhance the wiki? Something I forgot about (I know there are still some cliff only work in progress places)? So you know about the UD wiki ? How about the new wiki User Interface (I am using it on several other wiki-sites I run, with mixed feelings. Though I like it, it might be irritating for unexperienced users).

I don't know about the new interface, Do you have a link? I often go to the UD wiki for inspiration, but there are several things that we do better than they do, or at least could be doing better than they do, yet they do a LOT that we are not doing at all. I do have a few ideas for our wiki, let me put a few thoughts together and present them to you. :) --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 06:46, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
Take your time, I am away until at least tuesday. A link for the new wiki user interface would be the wikimedia-blog talking about it. Also, if you have an account at wikipedia, you should be able to use it. Might be necessary to switch to it, though. of course, I would RBCfy the colours. Fangs, for helping. --Cliff Burton Marco 09:02, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
Any new thoughts? I am planning to update the wiki software for security reasons and would like to decide about the UI. --Cliff Burton Marco 17:23, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

my sig

hey, I am confused about how I created a page that didn't belong to me. I concur that I was having trouble with the signature thing. but i didn't realize that it caused me to make a page on someone elses page. I wanted the sig to say Susan rather than Occamrazor, since that seemed to be an issue. I would also like to settle the issue regarding the confusion about me and aaron being the same person. Can you tell me how we can put this issue to rest, please? thanks--Occamrazor 07:33, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Eliminating Confusion

Hey Archie,

So I'm curious what moderator powers have given the ability to scry the human behind the Wiki-users. I'm not Susan, Occamrazor, or female for that matter. You know me; I RP'd in you clan for nearly two years. So please *tries to phrase it nicely* STOP being a dumbass?

Thanx Bro

--Alchemy Monday 07:45, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Sorry Susan, I have SEVERAL conversations where Aaron is swearing up and down to me OOC that he never played Alchemy Monday, so unless he's the most untrustworthy liar that one can imagine, I'm simply not going to believe you. Furthermore, I'm not going to get into this DRAMA with you here on this wiki, or play these games with you. You and I both know what's up, so let it go. I will not discuss this issue with you again. --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 16:29, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Latest doings...

Just wanna say that I read (some of) them and wanna thank you. I like it. I am losing a bit the overview over the whole site though. I wish I could make the things a bit simpler. We need a better and easier suggestions system where users can see from the startpage what suggestions where made. I am thinking about this for a while now. --Cliff Burton Marco 13:39, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! I think perhaps an expansion of the Help:Howto page is in order, and include it on the Wiki Information template, as well as an expansion of the Wiki Information template itself, so it has more choices. Or perhaps create a version of that template that can be used like a bar across the top of the main page. Those are just a few thoughts that popped immediately to mind. I will think about this too. --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 16:55, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

You're an ass! †Majica

Stop being a douchebag

Change the page, dick. Stop making up bullshit. --Lameth, the honorable and fair. 03:04, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Awaiting response from you.

I have revoked your administration powers for now. --Cliff Burton Marco 18:58, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

I do not believe I have abused my powers. The lock on the Wilde page was placed to prevent edit warring. It is NOT a group page, nor the personal page of any editor. The creator of the page has not expressed any dissatisfaction with my actions. The Vampire Archangel is the grandsire of the Wilde line, and has as much right to the page as anyone in my humble opinion. You are the boss here, and if you feel otherwise, I will of course do as you say. --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 19:05, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Please check your E-Mail. --Cliff Burton Marco 19:14, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
I hate to butt my nose in the drama, but I created that page in it's current incarnation. That's very obvious on the talk page, Arch. I could've started a new page, but I chose to not waste the space that was already there with a bad (un-related page). And I - the creator of the Wilde page, am very adamently expression dissatisfaction with your actions. Loudly. Do not try to weasle around it, it's clear I started the page.--Ace 19:17, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
You did not create the page. And why are you only NOW expressing all this dissatisfaction with the Archangel mention? It's been up there for months. --Archangel Talk * Welcome * Support 19:20, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Archangel is NOT my character's Sire nor Grandsire. Another lie. Your charrie's name appears no where in my characters lineage. And Ace, the creator of the Wilde page did express his concerns over what you did in regard to the Wilde family page and your constant edits. I've asked repeatidly, since last night, that you stop adding and editing information to a page that doesn't concern you, or your character. Again, if you feel what you're trying to add is pertaint to your charrie's history, then add it to your charrie's page. It's insignifigant on the Wilde page and so I ask again, to cease with your edits. Thank you! †Majica

I did create the page, and I left evidence every step of the way to prove it. The page was originally Sheridan's Chateau, and I MADE IT INTO THE WILDE PAGE. You can read, Arch. Don't split hairs to try and make yourself innocent. As for why Im now claiming dis-satisfaction? That's because it was only just brought to my attention. I don't have time to stalk after all your insanities, but when I see you ruining a page I spent time creating I have to step in. All of the Family pages were created by me, the entire category was created by me. And that's clear in the history.--Ace 19:24, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Everything that I tried to add to the Wilde family page, you deleted, but left your lie there for what reason I don't know. To try to agrivate me? To push my buttons? To annoy? Your abuse of power, by banning me last night, as well as adding and editing whatever you feel was appropriate was shocking. †Majica

This was LONG overdue in coming. My appreciation to Cliff Burton for finally doing something about this ongoing problem. --Alchemy Monday 20:36, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
