Maybe it was an NSFW pasta that was deleted, if so, this guide has you covered on common pitfalls.

Re: Re: Evidence
I typed the URL wrong. I reported this because it seems so painfully obvious, and they have shown they have read the rules.
I do not expect the user to be punished. I understand these alts are not active, but it should probobaly be noted.
Good day Empy.
I am curious, is it within the rules for a user to have multiple stories nominated for PotM at once?
They've been nominated by different users, but I just want to ensure everything's on the up and up.
Thanks for your time.
- Thank you for your prompt response regarding this issue. I'm still relatively new to the Wiki, and Fandom in general. Is there any possibility of it becoming a rule in the future?
- I ask all of this because two of my stories were nominated, separately, by user's who had no collusion or knowledge of the other's intentions. I respect their decisions, and am flattered by the nominations, but I wholeheartedly agree with you about it not being entirely fair. How would you recommend we proceed with this? I don't want to disrespect either user, or their intentions, but perhaps one of the nominations should be removed?
PotM Double Nomination Kurfuffle
I reached out to MakRalston, explaining the conundrum. I believe it best that Eggy have its nomination rescinded, in honour of fair competition and simplicity, as it is the latter of the two nominations.
Thank you for your guidance in this matter.
A copy of my story
can I have a copy of the story you deleted so I can atleast have an archive just incase I want to post it somewhere else

Sorry for the message, but ...
My profile and talk pages have just been vandalized by this user. I don't want this to happen to anyone else, so I'd appreciate if you looked into it. Thanks! Palaeontologica (talk) 16:05, 25 December 2021 (UTC)
Writer's Workshop Draft Removal
Good day Dr. Invective.
At your discretion, I'd like to request that my draft of Better Thoughts (Unreviewed) in the Writer's Workshop be removed, as the story has been posted to the wiki in its final form.
Thanks for your time.
- Re: Writer's Workshop Draft Removal response
- My bad, I had no idea such a process existed. I know I fudged it up, but I saw what you did to the page, so now I know for the future. Thanks for your assistance.
Thank you for the kind congratulations. It is truly an honour to have joined the prestige of PotM authors.
Thank you, once more!
Copy of Red Tape
Can you provide me with a copy of my story, Red Tape, for the Writers Workshop? I didn't have it saved anywhere else.

Blog + Happy New Year!
Hey again! Happy New Year, hope you had a great Holiday season. Do you have any holiday issues/questions/comments/feedback?
Over the Holiday break, we received a report about this blog and how the blog is being used by some to harass BloodySpghetti. It is generally best not to post blogs targetting individual users - even if the intentions are correct - as affected users may be targetted is all. Would it be alright to remove the blog? It's over a year old and if the wiki needs a blog to remind users of the rules, I could help make another one that doesn't mention specific users. :) --Spongebob456 talk 18:48, 3 January 2022 (UTC)
- Hey, many thanks! I definitely agree with you the importance of stopping predatory behaviour and while I don't know the full context, my bringing it up wasn't an endorsement of that user, moreso to state that it is discouraged to use blogs to offer that message while naming users in question is all. Having those blogs/policies in place to stop predatory behaviour and warn others I totally understand and if I can help in any way in future please do let me know.
- I'm interested in what you say that they have their own wiki and what you suggest they may use it for. Have you got a link to that handy please? I want to investigate and make sure I have more context on it. Has that user been reported on Discord for this behaviour? --Spongebob456 talk 19:54, 4 January 2022 (UTC)
Random question just for fun
Are you an Auto-Mod? If not, then damn, do you have any free time?
I don't really know what to say. I'm confused honestly. Why was my page, That wasn't a Deer, deleted?
Re: My deleted post?
You should be a gunslinger.
Before I could even mark that page for deletion, BAM, it's gone. I may have accidentally recreated it with the deletion tag because of the whole debacle. If so, my bad.
I clearly don't know what I'm doing.
I've found bits and pieces of editing information, but is there a full guide out there for updating certain areas? I don't want to muck anything up mess something up too badly because I think I mucked up the Writer's Showcase with my entry and now I look like a dork or . Thanks :)
Re: Re: Cannibalism
I am glad to say that, along with the two you suggested on my talk page, I have found The nessesary amount of stories that would fit into the category. Actually, your story, At My Most Human State, is what inspired me to try to make the category. However, I probably should have read up on how to do it and who to ask. Anyway, Here are the stories: I Work in a Meat Factory in Birmingham, Rapacious, Butter-Scotch, Fursonal Vendetta, Finger-Lickin' Good, Flesh, Dinner Guest, German Steel
Additional stories: The Man Who Never Had His Fill, The Meat, The Meating, Meat Market, Mom's Cooking, My Brother and I Kidnapped a Woman for Thanksgiving, My Mother's Baking.
It Happened Again
I tagged it for deletion as you deleted, I believe. Sorry.
Request to review a draft
Hi, I just added a draft titled 'How my roommate managed to overcome her drinking problem' in the writer's workshop. I'd be really grateful if you or any of your colleagues would be able to review the story.
Good day Empy, hope you're doing well.
Unfortunately, following some blunt advice and responses I gave to a user named "Lol980898" they have begun harassing me personally by vandalising my articles, making malicious posts about me and by replying to me abusively.
They also created a blog post as an article which is spam.
I hope you are able to deal with this ASAP because it's very annoying to have your articles vandalised.
Many thanks :)
Candidates for Deletion
Hello there! It seems like there are a lot of stories in the 'Delete Now' category. Some have been in there for several days now. Could you take a look in there and delete the articles that do not belong on the wiki? PinkSus (talk) 17:54, 10 February 2022 (UTC)
I didn't notice your note on my talk page but sure!
Old content deletion request
Hey there Travis/Empy.
I was a user here in the past, but however for all the wrong reasons back for a brief period in 2016. (I was 14 back then). I had done some dubious activity in the past regarding a very bad creepypasta I had submitted (its title was Number 17 if I can recall, and it has been deleted for a good reason, it was beyond horrible and nonsensical and no copies of it exist). I had acted very badly back then - I was very immature back then and not fluent in English as well, as well as writing rather stupid stuff that I regret and have changed opinions- and regret this happening. In the end, I admit that the entire creation of that intentionally atrocious pasta (Number 17) I uploaded back then was just a troll and nothing to do with me, I was 14 and loved to troll people in the past, and I sincerely apologize for what I had done back then for the sake of trolling, including even pretending to hate stuff for the sake of trolling, I was very immature back then.
I would like to request a deletion for all mentions of this from your archives both in the deletion appeal and in your talk archives, as I don't want any association anymore with stuff I did in the past. (If you have time of course, also it should be easy as it is all activity from my account, which was very few and on your archives on talk 21 and 22 as well as deletion appeal archive number 20 or 21 if I remember correctly)
Re: Deletion rejection
I understand now the meaning of this message. While it will stay permanent, yes I am glad I matured and let the past become an opportunity for improvement. I have worked a lot genuinely in different communities when it comes to storywriting and this time serious ones. I honestly don't know why I began trolling here, it was a part of a series of trolls I did as a young teen (of varying content) and now after revisioning this, it was pretty stupid and decided to move on.
Yes, of course I understand why appeals etc. don't get deleted, it is a way to help the admins and I say it is a good thing indeed.
Overall, I have to say thanks to your response, pretty good advice in general.
Have a nice day!
Not to Be a Creep But...
Are you back?
I noticed you had some recent activity, in a totally non-creepy way.
It's super hype if you are. You've been sorely missed by the community, both in presence and actions.
In your absence I've attempted to be a more productive user. Using your actions/history as guidance (without trying to mini-mod).
Anyways, whether or not you're back, I hope you're doing well.
Re: Creepers Gonna Creep
While I'm sorry to hear that you don't intent do come back in the same capacity, I'm happy to hear that you feel as though your life is in a better order. I'm sure it's easy to get wrapped up in things around here. Especially being as dedicated as you were. Regardless of what happens, you'll always be appreciated here in my books. It will be rough without the iron fist of Empy to quash the upstarts and rabble rousers.
I'm considering putting forth an application for rollbacker/discussions mod. No one else has stepped up for a while, and the only active users with any authority are big daddy Cleric, and Billy C (who are excellent, of course). I think I'm in a unique position to be desired due to an air of desperation...
Jokes aside, it's good you're in a better place. Real life > online commitments. With your work ethic, I'm sure you'll succeed anywhere you commit yourself.
I look forward to seeing you when the moon is blue, my friend.
I was wondering if I could talk to you on Discord about an offsite topic regarding myself and a few other users. I imagine it's something you'd be interested in. My username is Cornconic#2186. Thanks in advance.
