Blanking pages

Don't blank any pages in the future, even if it's your own story. It could be construed as vandalism, and just leaves a blank page with no content. If you wish to have your story deleted, just ask an admin.

Nay Nay is Cray Cray

Not sure if you should stop reverting his/her edits now or not. I think you might just be encouraging him/her and making the recent activity log more convoluted at this point, but not sure. I've contacted an admin via email, so this will be resolved in a bit. You might wait to revert articles after the ban that way there isn't an edit war or so the vandal gets bored and goes away. Just a suggestion, the decision is yours. Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 08:59, February 7, 2017 (UTC)

Cool, cool! Best of luck to you and keep up the good work :D Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 09:11, February 7, 2017 (UTC)
Hey, I wanted to drop by to say that I personally appreciate your efforts in undoing vandalism. Thank you for that and cheers.

Heads up

Hey there, Milan. I wanted to give you a heads-up, next time you think a story is worthy of deletion, instead of adding the Delete Now category like you'd add any other one, it would be better to add this template at the begging of the story: {{Delete}}. You can also add | and a specific reason for deletion, otherwise it will say it doesn't meet the quality standards. The same goes for marked for review ( {{M4R}} ), except you have to state a reason there.

I'm the Hand of God. The one where he holds the spear 17:36, February 11, 2017 (UTC)

That's alright. By the way, if you see that again, revert it. Not even authors are allowed to blank their own page.

I'm the Hand of God. The one where he holds the spear 17:51, February 11, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Greetings

Thanks so much!  You're so sweet!  You have no idea how much it means to me to hear that someone likes the Black Friday series.  It's probably my favorite thing I've ever written, but I got kind of self-conscious and didn't know whether or not other people would be into it, as it's more of a comedy metapasta than an actual scary story.  So yeah, I'm so happy you're enjoying it.  I think I'm going to post new chapters on Tuesdays and Saturdays, as I'm still doing line-by-line edits, there's a new one up now.  

Thank you!!!

Re: Askin' Travis a little question

There was really no need to add emphasis on those words. If the author intended for those words to be focused on, they would have added the italics themselves. It seems like something the author should be made aware of and not changed without their acknowledgement. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 19:43, March 12, 2017 (UTC)

If I may also weigh in, when editing you should focus only on fixing mistakes, and maybe things like adding the by-user template. In other words, don't fix what ain't broken.
I'm the Hand of God. The one where he holds the spear 19:48, March 12, 2017 (UTC)
Rather than flood someone's TOC with dozens of separate headers I tend to leave out headers on conversations that are simple. If it bothers you so much, you can add the header. I just don't see the point for one and done messages. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 20:15, March 12, 2017 (UTC)
Okay, you do realize that if message on my talk page actually had headers for each one that it would be much, much longer (there're five separate messages inquiring about deletions) and that the only reason we're continuing this conversation is because you're complaining about an inane thing that you easily resolved yourself? Each person has their own style for categorizing and I was just trying to explain my philosophy. I try to make it as non-cluttered and condensed as possible. Sorry if that bothers you, but there's no real ettiequte laid out that users have to uphold other than the basic don't alter/blank messages/warnings and don't harass/threaten users. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 20:31, March 12, 2017 (UTC)

A Heads Up

Please refrain from adding categories to pages that are marked for review (especially ones with categories already listed and obscured with: "<!--[[Category:Beings]] [[Category:Space]]-->") as the marked for review template and categorization are admin's means of quarantining stories until changes can be made/an admin can weigh in as explained on the Marked for Review page. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 23:20, March 13, 2017 (UTC)

No problem. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 23:39, March 13, 2017 (UTC)

Notice

Pictures should only be added to stories with the author's consent as the images may not coincide with the writer's original tone for the story. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 16:50, March 18, 2017 (UTC)

It doesn't matter how much you think a picture fits, it's up to the author to decide. The same arguments could be used to add additional paragraphs to someone else's work. Impractical or not, asking for permission is always the right way to proceed.
I'm the Hand of God. The one where he holds the spear 17:07, March 18, 2017 (UTC)
If you feel the picture is essential you'll be willing to go the extra mile to get the author's approval. Adding pictures without their consent is like changing wording, it alters their original intent. As for them really matching, I'm not sure how adding a caricature drawing onto a ritual-based story matches their idea (especially if they're going for believability). You can say it matches but the author may completely disagree with that statement so their input should be taken into account. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 17:10, March 18, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Pro

Funny you should mention actually because I had no clue what I was doing and stole it directly off TenebrousTorrent's userpage while removing any HTML tags that affected font etc. If you want more info on how to make it look cool you might want to ask Mr Dupin, I think he knows a bit more about this stuff ChristianWallis (talk) 08:10, April 25, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Ridiculous

You're confusing disembowelment for dismemberment (additionally if you're going to use dismemberment as a category tag, it needs to be more focused on in the story. For example you wouldn't add the animals category just because it makes mention of a dog at one point) and you're confusing good edits for stylistic changes that don't actually improve a story's quality. Additionally I answered your question about unfinished pages in the comments. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 23:51, April 29, 2017 (UTC)

Concerning Your Edits

Hello. I’ve noticed that you’ve been very active with your edits lately, particularly in regards to NickyXX’s Black Friday series. I myself have been following the series from the beginning, which also means I’ve noticed the changes that you’ve been making. To be frank, many of the edits you make are abysmally bad. Like... horrible. Before I go any further, I’d like to say that I honestly believe you’re well-meaning. It’s nice that there’s someone here who is willing to take the time to try and improve things. The problem is that you’re often careless, creating mistakes where there were none before. You also have a tendency to correct grammar and spelling that wasn't incorrect to begin with. Yikes! The worst thing you do is to override the author’s stylistic choices, overzealously changing passages that were intentionally written in a way that highlighted a character’s personality. I’ll give some examples below, but it will be just a small sampling of your bad edits; after a certain point, any more would be unproductive.

And before I get on with the examples, let me say that many of your edits are actually quite helpful, and I was impressed with some of the things you caught (when I wasn’t scowling furiously at your other edits). In no way do I want you to stop editing, but instead I’d like you to be more careful and considerate. I debated for a long time whether I should approach this subject with you. After all, you haven’t edited any of my stories, and I’m not an admin. In the end, I feel that it’s my right at a reader to experience the story in the way that was intended by the author, without a well-meaning interloper getting in the way.

EXAMPLES OF CARELESS EDITING:

Kidnapped by a Cthullu Ripoff:
Original wording: A couple mimed tapping watches. A few more mouthed questions.
You changed it to: A couple mimed tapping watches A few more mouthed questions.
Original wording: The air was hazy. Peppermint permeated the mall.
Changed to: The air was hazy Peppermint permeated the mall.
Okay, so you don’t like double spaces after periods. While it’s debatable as to whether that’s something that should be changed or not, that’s an issue for later. In your zeal to cut out the double spaces, you also deleted the periods, resulting in run-on sentences. You also did this on The Specific Patsy They Want.

I Get It, I'm a TV Trope
Original wording: Evie asked sardonically.
Changed to: vie asked sardonically.
Yep, you deleted the E from the character’s name. BTW, this one has already been fixed.

EXAMPLES OF FLAT-OUT INCORRECT EDITING:

Round One - The Old One
Original wording: “Winner takes all,” she said.
Changed to: “Winner takes all”, she said.
You probably already know the comma is supposed to go inside the quotation marks. Not sure why you put it outside. At first I thought it was simply a typo, but you repeated this exact mistake two more times a little further down. These particular edits of yours have already been reverted.

Of Course There's a Clown
Original wording: wormlike
Changed to: worm-like.
Wormlike is one word and doesn’t need to be hyphenated.

Find Me a Blow Up Doll
Original wording: But I didn’t see any lightning.
Changed to: But I didn't see any lighting.
This is wrong because a few paragraphs earlier, the author mentioned “those lightning-sphere toys” which is what the character was unable to see upon entering the store.

Original wording: crotchless, claylike, doorframe (note, these words appeared separate from each other in the story)
Changed to: crotch-less, clay-like, door frame
Same as wormlike, they were already correct to begin with and didn't need hyphenating/separating.

EXAMPLES OF OVERRIDING THE AUTHOR'S STYLISTIC CHOICES:

I Know How to Use it All as a Weapon:
Original wording: amongst
Changed to: among
There was nothing that was grammatically incorrect with the original sentence. Writers often have reasons for using specific words, and you really have no right to go and change it just because you think your version sounds better.

Original wording: “God.”
Changed to: ”God!”
So you felt it needed an exclamation point. You know who didn’t feel that way? The author! Also, you added quotation marks facing the wrong way – so that one can go in the “careless edit” bin as well.

You Already Have Them
Original wording: Three clues. Damien.
Changed to: Three clues, Damien.
The problem with this edit is that it alters the character’s way of speaking. The period (that you changed to a comma) gave the speech a staccato nature. It was an integral part of the sentence, yet you made the choice to eliminate it. I would agree that usually, a comma would be most appropriate in these situations. But here, the author was using it to show that Minnie’s speech was somewhat unnatural.

I Get It, I'm a TV Trope
Original wording: “Do you surrender? Damien.
Changed to: “Do you surrender, Damien?
Same as above. You’re changing the character’s intended speech pattern.

The Monster's Gonna Take One of Us Out
Original wording: unmoving
Changed to: motionless
Why? Again, just because you may think something sounds better a different way, that doesn’t give you the right to edit it to suit your own preference. There was nothing grammatically wrong with the sentence to start off with.

Find Me a Blow Up Doll
Original wording: DING! DINGDINGDING DING DING!
Changed to: DING! DING! DING! DING! DING!
The three dings all in a row (without the exclamation points) gives an additional sense of urgency that can’t be conveyed by the exclamation points alone. Why did you feel the need to change it?

He Had No Face
Original wording: YOU CANT SAVE THEM GOD DIDNT SAVE HER
Changed to: YOU CAN'T SAVE THEM GOD DIDN'T SAVE HER
Why oh why would you correct a CHARACTER’S written grammar? The lack of apostrophes was clearly intentional by the author, because not only does it give us insight into the character who wrote the note, but it also fits thematically with the character's jagged handwriting.

We Can Be Your Friends, Little Ricky
I won't bother to post it all here, but you went through and edited (for grammar) an entire text message conversation between two of the characters. Why? The errors were clearly intentional, and made to reflect the way real-world people text.

Original wording: annunciated
Changed to: announced
The two words are synonyms, and either one would be appropriate, so you had no reason to change what the author wrote.

Humans are Highly Discouraged from Entering Other Dimensions
Original wording: some notes in an Asian language
Changed to: some notes in some Asian language
This is a completely pointless and unnecessary edit.

Creepy Thomas O. (talk) 23:14, May 12, 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply. I hope I didn't come off too negatively in my original post. Like I touched on, I honestly believe that you make some great edits. For example, moving the author notes to the top of the page is very helpful to those people who stumble into the series halfway through. As far as the "two spaces after a period" is concerned - you'll find that there's a huge difference of opinion on that matter. Many people were taught as children to leave two spaces; it's a holdover from the days of typewriters. Generally, the people who do this are a bit older than the ones who don't, though there are exceptions. I myself had to make a concerted effort to stop with the two spaces and embrace the one. My honest opinion on whether it should be changed or not is "I really don't know." My gut instinct tells me to leave it up to what the writer wants, but the stories do look a little cleaner with only one space. Lastly... I'm very impressed by anyone who has mastered multiple languages. I myself can only remember about twenty words in Spanish and that's about it.
Creepy Thomas O. (talk) 22:19, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

Another Warning Against Stylistic Editing

Please refrain from making stylistic changes to stories. You've been warned about this a few times already. Older authors still adhere to the two spaces after conclusive punctuation and numerous forms accept this method of writing. Removing/adding in spaces after punctuation is a superfluous edit that doesn't improve the story. I would really suggest looking over Creepy Thomas O's message as he covers a lot of points that I would here. Failure to follow rules will result in a temporary ban from editing. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 20:04, May 17, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Just Wondering

I have noticed you've edited a bunch of my stories.  Thank you so much for that, by the way!!  And, this is probably weird, but I didn't even noticed you'd changed the spacing.  I don't mind, but that's got to be a lot of work for you!  I've never used a typewriter in my life, but it's second nature for me to use two spaces after a period, because that's how I was taught in school as a kid.  It's fine, though.  I don't mind either way.

Anyways, I'm so glad you liked the ending.  I'll read some of your stories when I get more free time :)

NickyXX (talk) 04:41, May 18, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Pointless Edits

Really, the only thing that picture tells me is that you made all of those changes before asking if it was alright. You have repeatedly changed something that doesn’t need to be altered in any way. Multiple people use two spaces after sentences. While it is less common, it is still an accepted method. Cleric even brought this up on a throwaway poll saying, “I know I'm a total relic for using double space.  I just find it looks better in smaller fonts.”

Another note, the fact that you only asked these people (Shadowswimmer77, who I had to ask, and NickyXX, who you asked after the fact) after editing their stories and changing the style in which they were written doesn’t bode well. Given that I, Creepy Thomas O., and Diexilius have pointed this out to you on multiple separate occasions and you’re still making these un-necessary edits doesn’t seem like the best choice. We don't actually have a talk page template because most times we only have to point out the issue once for someone to realize that editing like that is a bad decision. As for the fact that you "altered it to match the one that was predominant", I would point you to NickyXX's catalogue of stories which are almost always written with two spaces. In fact a majority of the single spaced style that I came across that was written by them were the ones you changed. How exactly is that making the story uniform? Feel free to read over: Three Friends Diner, The Burned Photo, The Shredder Monkey, and Sniff and note the number of spaces.

To put it in easier to understand terms, this would be like you changing the spelling of British writing (defence/travelling/colour) to American (defense/traveling/color) because you felt it ‘looked better’. This wiki accepts both and we frequently warn people who go about changing them. This is another instance of you changing something stylistically without getting approval. It doesn’t matter if you feel like it improves the story to remove a space after a sentence or think that a picture improves the story, without the author’s input, you’re basically changing their story without their permission. The next time you do so, I will treat it as a ban-able offense as it’s clear you’re not taking these warnings into account. As for "admins are the law. But that doesn't give them the right to make laws." I'm actually just enforcing the laws that have been set up on the wiki. I've had no hand in creating them. Feel free to message Cleric if you feel I've overstepped my bounds. Also, please remember to sign your posts. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 20:56, May 18, 2017 (UTC)

Also, I suggest you keep reading the lowest cutout you added: "The standard is one space, but it's okay to use two." I'm just going to put that in bold and underline it so you can make sure to read it correctly this time. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 21:02, May 18, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Notice

Done, please let me know if there's anything else. I'll try to get around to reviewing the M4R stories when I get a bit more free time to really look them over. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 00:12, May 20, 2017 (UTC)

It likely would violate our copyright rules as the book is probably not in public domain and is probably trademarked and licensed. We tend to play it on the safe side in these instances as DMCAs have been issued over content similar to this in the past. A few months back, we had to remove a medical mystery about Edward Mordrake after it was revealed the content came from a book about medical anomalies. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 00:28, May 20, 2017 (UTC)

RE: M4R

Thanks for the reminder, but if you look at the M4R descriptions, you'll notice that both are in the author's court to edit and fix their issues (as the errors have been pointed out to them on their posts in the WW and the onus for writing/editing falls on the author after they've been given feedback. Once by Christian and the other by me.) by the end of this month. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 20:46, June 22, 2017 (UTC)

Slavic Pride or Something

Milan, my brother, my slavic butt rub worthy brother. 

Sorry for drooling all over your ethnicity, I came to look at your page and found this one piece about the almighty, one true god, Perun.

RE:Slavic Pride or Something

From the couple of pieces I got to read which are yours, they're relatively short and "My dears" or however its called, forgive me for not remembering the proper name. I've read it a while ago, wasn't bad, wasn't amazing either. You do have lots of talent on the technical side and something of a Poe'ish style to your writing. While I do find this style good for its time, my own taste is somewhat more towards the psychological side of the macabre.

Also, I've this one piece about Marowit (I assume if you are polish you should be familiar with the deity even though I'm not sure you are not a southern slav), I shall post it on this wikia.

OK, I'm missing something. Did we ever specify a war or can we use any? I was thinking Vietnam fitting with my theme but I can change it.FilmCriticFrog (talk) 05:18, September 21, 2017 (UTC)

An update involving my story revamp

Hey Helel, I looked over a couple of things and fixed some pacing, grammar, and overall weird mistakes I found on my way to a short revise. It's over on the Workshop again. You don't have to look over it now but I'm just letting you know. I wanna know the bigger mistakes when you review it and if you spot more grammar or pacing mistakes, let me know. I'm super tired so I might not have gotten every thing right. I'll see you later, peace! LionPrince13 (talk) 08:16, September 22, 2017 (UTC)LionPrince13

Finally updated, to my best intent

Hey man! I'm ready for my next review, and please read the very beginning of the post before doing said action. 

By the way, I read NoEnd House and a bit of The Showers

anyways, glad to let you know, see ya!

Concerning the collab entry

Sure, I'd just like to generally know what changes you intend on making. If it's about things that pertain to future entries, I'm all for it.

Duskfallen (talk) 15:50, September 24, 2017 (UTC)Noctevoire


Sure, just make sure you don't change much about the story itself. The dialogue between characters is         free to be  altered.

Duskfallen (talk) 16:14, September 24, 2017 (UTC)Noctevoire

Speaking of which, what did you think of the story itself?

Duskfallen (talk) 16:17, September 24, 2017 (UTC)Noctevoire

discord for collab?

Does one already exist? or a discord chat for wiki users in general? if so I have no idea how to find it.--Mikemacdee (talk) 07:34, September 28, 2017 (UTC)

Hiya

I would be happy to narrate some of your stories. I aso have a channel on vidme which I am very active with.

Please let me know which stories you have in mind so I can have a read.

Thanks very much.

I read your Collab entry

I really liked the detail with which you described the tunnel situation. The utilization of realistic horror made it especially unsettling. However, I was a bit disappointed with how the mysterious black figure only made an appearance in one line, almost as an afterthought. Kinda seems like it was put in just to make it correlate with the other stories.

I'm interested to hear where you think the story's going, and how it's all gonna tie together, since you're writing the conclusion. I have some ideas as to how they can all wrap up.

Icydice says hello

Hello Helel, thank you for reviewing my micropastas. I'm glad you thought it was interesting, I had an idea for a micropasta plot, thought for a while, wrote it and spell checked it/uploaded it all in about two hours hoping the idea would be alright. I was trying to go for the protagonist being the reflection, but as you mentioned this is a little unclear. I'm thinking of ways to make it easier to figure out or maybe just flat out saying he's a reflection at the end of the story.

Oh, and thank you for the compliment my friend. I will try to do those great things for sure.


I'll post the story, although I'm a little unsure on how to sign it and give an authors note in the story. Might need help but I'm sure I can find out how through when you did it on my Werewplf story.

Review

Hi friend, I posted another rather short story on the workshop. It has two reviews saying it is good, but I feel there is something more I need for the story but I cannot place it. I was wondering if whenever you had any free time you might review it. Also I would like the opinion of someone experienced, like you.

Thanks,

Icydice (talk) 18:59, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

Hello, Icy again. Forgot to link the story.

Small Misconception

Thank you man, you have been a huge help.

Icydice (talk) 19:57, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

I made the fixes you suggested and added in some juicy (Although somewhat disturbing) details about the punishment of those evil men. Thank you again for your time.

Indeed you have!

Excellent work on hitting the mark! Feel free to apply your category at your leisure.

RE: Collab

Things are still rocky, and every time I've hit a point where I try to get it back on track it's been thrown off by something entirely different. Real life is so utterly hectic right now that I'm still trying to get the collab entry in order. (For example: I literally just got internet back today, hence my absence for the past 2 (3?) weeks).

You guys all have my sincerest apologies. A lot of stuff going on recently has been completely out of my control and I'm a very busy person rl nowadays, and I am so sorry. Your Friendly Neighborhood Toddler (talk) 00:07, November 15, 2017 (UTC)

I'm going to try and write it up before the due date. It'll probably be a fairly short entry either way - but let the others know to go ahead and post freely. No need to wait on me unless their entries are somehow dependent on my own.
If they are, let me know how many people I'm holding up so I can better prioritize and be able to plan it in with the rest of my schedule as to make it more convenient for everyone. Your Friendly Neighborhood Toddler (talk) 00:38, November 15, 2017 (UTC)

Writer's Workshop

Hello there! I posted something on writers workshop and for some reason when I copied the work from word and posted it the words turned black? I'm not sure what happened, but I was hoping you would know what causes this so I can fix it.

Custom signature? pfft, as if I were that creative (talk) 16:25, November 22, 2017 (UTC)

furballa and leathersuits.

You are welcome. Word limit seems short... or that piece was so good I didn't notice the length. Serbian still has a Cryllic written form. Again, Glagolitic was maintained only by Croat clergy up until the 1800s.

Writers' Showcase template Trouble

Hi, I'm trying to use the WS template on this post: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:600011, but I seem to have broken it somehow. Can you help me, or should I just format it myself without the template?

No worries!

I'll take a look at it tonight and let you know if anything needs correcting.

Writer's Workshop Story

Thanks for your review on my story. I have updated it since and even proofread it and used grammarly, but I'm sure it has grammar flaws because I've been totally out of it the past few days. I'll find them though don't worry. In the meantime I don't know if you want to read it agaon, but here is the updated version.

Custom signature? pfft, as if I were that creative (talk) 14:01, December 23, 2017 (UTC)


Sorry for the delay

Hey,

I looked over the entries from The Tunnel on down, assuming that was yours as your the first signature to appear beneath them. 

I didn't spot any nomenclature issues as far as the military themes go on your part. As far as the character dialogue it felt organic and flowed well. It kept me interested. I'll have to dig into the whole thread one of these nights so that I can see how well it fits into the over all story. 

If you have any specific questions on military themes or lingo, please feel free to send those directly my way. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you on this one. 

K. Banning Kellum (talk) 18:23, December 23, 2017 (UTC)


Okay, got it right this time

Alright, I just got finished reading the Mercy section and I do have some corrections.

Okay, first off the doctor mentions that since he was a doctor in the civilian world, he was drafted as a medic. The correction here is two fold. A man with a medical degree likely wouldn't be drafted for starters, as he'd likely be too old by then or considered too valuable to the community he serves. However, if he were drafted, he'd have been used as an Army Field Surgeon, not a medic. This would mean that he'd be commissioned as an officer. 

A medic is an enlisted job in the Army that only requires comleting Basic Training and their lengthy Advanced Individual Training. Medics are typically somewhere on par with a paramedic as far as training and job duties require. 

The other mistake I caught was with the racist sergeant character. Firstly, Sergeants are Non-Comissioned Officers and are never referred to as "sir." NCO's are addressed by their rank. Only officers and warrant officers are referred to as "sir."

The doctor in your story would actually outrank the sergeant by quite a lot, so there would be no situation that I can imagine in which the sergeant would be barking orders at the doctor. 

Finally, the idea of the doctor informing soldiers that they are going to die is counter-intuative to most (current) medical doctrine. Medics are trained to reassure even the most extreme cases that they are going to make it, regardless of the odds. Keeping up the wounded soldiers' morale is a very valuable asset in the treatment. Although I suppose if it's just part of the doctor's personality to be ultra pragmatic, then it would make sense. 

Well, those are the errors that I caught. I hope this helps.

Template Trouble

Just wanted to drop by and say that when I try doing templates such as m4r, delete now, and signing my name on stories they don't seem to work right. I evem copy pasted them to perfection and they wouldn't do what they are supposed to. Anything I'm missing here?

Apology

Hi. Sorry, I'm completely new to this whole thing and I was very confused with the tags and I didn't see any notifications about the tags I used. I did in no way mean to ignore you or the rules. I just want to apologise for my lack of knowledge. I feel terrible about it so sorry once again.

I understand it's not an exuse. I just felt guilty so I wanted to say sorry that's the only reason I send you the message but thank you. I'll pay more attention next time. Vandelle (talk) 23:08, December 29, 2017 (UTC)Vandelle


Blogicle Template

There is a useful template that you can add that tells a user they cannot post their story as a blog, and gives them instructions on how to post a story. You can add the template by adding {{subst:Blogicle}}.

Thought you might find this useful. MrDupin (talk) 02:00, December 30, 2017 (UTC)


RE:Friendly Request

I don't think Cleric has properly gotten the chance to review your application page since it's the holidays and what not. While I can grant you admin rights, I cannot in good faith do it without Cleric giving the green light. Unless Cleric can't (or won't) do it for some reason. Though, it will be probably be very soon since the holidays are almost done, and Cleric will be back to do his stuff. If he still doesn't review your application in an appropriate amount of time, I'll do it myself. --Sloshedtrain Talk Contribs 19:45, December 30, 2017 (UTC)
