If you are here to inquire about a story of yours that was deleted, read this first as it will likely explain why.

Are you here about a Journal Entry pasta that was deleted? Read that guide before asking why your story was deleted.

If you are inquiring about a longer story that was deleted, perhaps this guide will elaborate on possible issues.

This guide on micro pastas should help if you are wondering why your short story was deleted.

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

Or maybe it was a more emotion driven story that you're wondering about what went wrong and how you can improve.

So, about the writing thing...Was I supposed to post a full length story? Or a summary? Sorry i sound like a noob, I just joined today. Vancetix spirit (talk) 17:16, December 31, 2018 (UTC)Vancetix

Wait, who, what, when, how? 

Damn, I'm surprised I landed in the PotM section. Thank you for notifying me!

Ex-ca-YUSE me good sir, but why was my story "Aurora Sheffield" deleted? I was planning to work on that just now, but poof, it gone fam. And there was no "suspicious external link" and why does a story have to be finished to be posted? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Acorn64 (talkcontribs).

Hello again. I finished my Aurora Sheffield Story, but whenever I try to save it, it says it was aborted by an extension hook or something. Can you help me with this?

Why was Lungs deleted?? Ive read the rules and it dont get what the story missed??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by QuestionMarked (talkcontribs).

Re: edits

When I edit and click the place I want to add something, my mouse will automatically highlight a very small space about one character wide, and as I type, the letters start replacing any text that's in front of it character by character as I typed, instead of the rest of the block moving forwards, if that makes sense.

I tried publishing and re-editing to 'reset' the thing but I had to resort to copy and pasting words into the spaces I wanted. Not sure if you've had this problem before but, apologies if it seemed like I was pointsgaming.

Thanks!

Story Deletion

I would like to know why story The Man in the Hoodie was deleted. I mean what was wrong with it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Scream 999 (talkcontribs).


Hello! Thank you for letting me know why my story was deleted. 

Also, do you have any suggestions on how to improve dialogue in stories and story ideas?

Page with copyright issue

Hey, sorry to bother you. Would you be able to delete this page? The revision history includes entire copies of copyrighted pastas, as well as users' personal email addresses and other information that should not be on Wikia. The base article was removed due to a request from the original author as well; it's strange how FANDOM staff did not remove the talk page at the same time. Thank you, LsSnab (talk) 20:36, January 11, 2019 (UTC)

Re: Page with copyright issue

Alright, thank you very much for the response. LsSnab (talk) 21:23, January 11, 2019 (UTC)

I really appreciate the feedback. This was actually the first time I ever wrote a little story in english. 

I don't want it back though, I have the idea in my head and if I have time I will write a similar but better story. DarkHunter89 (talk) 08:30, January 12, 2019 (UTC)

Update?

Hey, sorry to bother again. Has the admin team discussed deleting the talk page with copyright issues? What are the results (if any)? Thanks again, LsSnab (talk) 20:35, January 18, 2019 (UTC)

RE: Categories Mistake

I am deeply sorry for the trouble I caused with the categories. I am still new to this system, and I wasn't aware that the "Categories" feature would take any input without question. I was under the mistaken impression that the system would let me know if I was entering an invalid category.

I didn't realize until DrBob flagged my story that I'd made an error, but by then there was no way I could correct it. 

I will heed the given advice and strive to do better in the future. SawmillTurtle (talk) 01:57, January 19, 2019 (UTC)

User category?

You said on my talk page that I'd be eligible for my own category when I posted my tenth story, but at the time I didn't respond since I figured it might get deleted. I'm still worried my stories may not be up to the (raised?) quality standards (and that Kenosis could be too NSFW) and at risk of deletion, but if that's not the case... well, I guess I'm asking if I could get that category now that I've posted my eleventh story? If not, ok. VerminGoat (talk) 18:13, January 22, 2019 (UTC)

Hello, I'm sorry for bothering you. But I am still not certain why my story was deleted? I made sure everything was spelled correctly.

BubbleWaffle0 (talk) 00:52, January 27, 2019 (UTC)BubbleWaffle0

Ah, sorry nevermind. I posted my story in the incorrect spot. Sorry again for bothering you.

Thank you, Sir. I guess that does it, but how do I access my old talk messages? I thought there would be a little section titled "Archive 1" above my new talk page.

Thanks

Sorry to trouble ya with that mess. I love the site and appreciate all you do to help 'keep it creepy'. This may seem like an empty offer since I know very little about how to navigate this site or the internet in general, but please don't ever hesitate to ask if there's anything I can do to help out around here.

Hello. I have just recently logged in today after I dunno how many years, nostalgia hit me and i remembered that I had a creepypasta project written. When I logged in I saw that it was deleted (unfinished) is there a way to recover the file or is it gone forever?

Quick Question...

When it's claimed vandalism deleted things on your talk page on YOUR account, then why is there an edit button there? —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheKidOfWikis (talkcontribs).

Hey, it's me

Hey Empy, it's LionPrince. I'm back. I was hoping you could answer my question on how i could possibly reprise my failed past attempts at writing a pasta.



LionPrince13 (talk) 15:42, February 2, 2019 (UTC)

Just saw the message

Hey sorry, I just saw your notification. Firstly, sorry, my vernacular always made me think reprise meant redo in a loose sense. As for the suggestions, I meant would creating a whole new page with new backstory of the same character premise be acceptable. Or do I still have to rewrite it THEN submit an appeal before I post?


LionPrince13 (talk) 04:13, February 7, 2019 (UTC)

Delete User Page

Hi there,

Just wanted to request that my user page be deleted from the wiki.

Thanks,

TheBushAdministration (talk) 14:25, February 16, 2019 (UTC)

Hello! I have a quick question. How would I know if people could understand my message? I, myself, am an aspiring author/writer. When I usally show people my work, they are often confused on the message I try to potray. People usally say I should write in a more, 'Normal Style', but I often find myself having writers block and giving less detail in that sense. How could I help people understand the message I am trying to give while not coming off as to bland or to intense? Thank you.

My story was just deleted, and I wanted to ask why. Hope I didn't do anything bad.

Thank you :),

Orgasmeter (talk) 00:34, February 19, 2019 (UTC)

Hello :),

I received your message about my story being a troll pasta, and I just have a few questions regarding the classification of my story.

1. Why is it considered a troll pasta?

I can understand by the name and by the ending (wink wink), however it doesn't seem to really fit into a troll category...What was it about my story that you did not like?

2. A few Holders stories kind of fit into the same category, why are they still up?

I don't mean to sound like an entitled brat, really I don't, but there are stories on here that contain similar silly things...but they're still up on the website. Is there a possibility I can change my story a bit for it to fit your guidelines?

Thank you for your response :), Sincerely, Orgasmeter Orgasmeter (talk) 00:44, February 19, 2019 (UTC)

Toy Maker, Again

Sorry to bother you again but could you help me out once more? You see the Toy Maker creepypasta that Fra7013 posted was actually just a repost of one from "an american creepypasta site" that got deleted which was around May - July 2013. I have no idea who made it or have the link to it but do you think you could give me the same information as before except with this one? Again sorry to be a bother, the original creepypasta is just what I'm looking for.

I'm sick of this place; you are no fun. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zornech (talkcontribs).

Follow up

Heya, same guy bothering you with the toymaker thing again.

I was a little confused with your reply so I'll just ask for specifics real quick. You said this was the earliest version of the toymaker creepypasta, however what was the exact date it was created and who made it? 

You see, a guy by the name of LoneDev on the italian creepypasta wiki posted this toymaker creepypasta on June 20th, 2013. However, he has said that it was only a repost of of the original creepypasta that he found on a "american creepypasta wiki" which had been deleted (it was deleted on June 20th, 2013, the same day LoneDev reuploaded it because he was reading the original on the wiki and copied it before it got takin down). Fra7013 reuploaded the toymaker creepypasta on here on November 3rd, 2013 which was also deleted.

Basically, LoneDev reuploaded the creepypasta onto the italian creepypasta wiki and then Fra7013 reuploaded it onto here but it was eventually takin down. I have no idea who the original creator was or who deleted the original but I do know that the title was just like the other ones: "玩具メーカー (Toy Maker)"

Anyways this will be my last post about it so I won't bug you anymore after this, thanks for everything so far!

Eyes

Hi.

So, I guess you get a lot of these messages, but you just deleted my story. The thing is that I had re-read it multiple times before uploading, so this wouldn't happen, and I couldn't find anything wrong with it. I've already read the quality standarts before. So, I was wondering why? I'd be really nice if you could tell me, because, quite francly, I don't understand it. Appearently it was due to "widespread punctuation, capitalization, wording, and plot issues", but, as I said before, I couldn't see anything wrong with it.

(The story I'm talkning about was called "Eyes: Don't look")

April Fool's Day plans

Hello! I was thinking of doing a harmless little April Fools joke, but I wanted to see if I could so I don't get into trouble. On April 1st, I plan to change my user page for a few hours. I plan on temporarily changing my profile pic to this meme I made a few months ago and my user page description to some song lyrics. It's not hurting someone or committing vandalism, just doing a silly little thing that might raise eyebrows. Still, I thought I'd better get clearance. Raidra (talk) 00:12, March 29, 2019 (UTC)

Deletion Of My Pasta

Hello. I read the writing advice and quality standards pages and I don't really understand why my pasta (Darkness Won't Help 1-Contact) got deleted. It had correct punctuation, spell checking, capitalisation, I kept the story moving in chunks of days.

Page deletion

Hey uh, I don't mind that you deleted my page, I know the story wasn't good, but could you maybe copy paste it onto my talk page? Just so have it for memories, since it was my first creepypasta. —Preceding unsigned comment added by DJ10wiki (talkcontribs).


Small question.

Dear EmpyrealInvective,

I’m pretty new to this wiki and am just starting to find my way around. I’d love one day to be an active member and I’m trying to contribute as much as I can for now, forgive me for unknowingly breaking the rules. I’ll be more careful later on about adding tags and commenting on blog posts. Thank you for your messages.

How to improve?

Can you please give me some advice on how to make a better story?

Dear EmpyRealInvective,

I’m thinking about submitting one of my stories I wrote onto the wiki, but I’m not too sure about the copyright/ownership issues. Does my story become public domain and will I unknowingly sign away my ownership since I’ve released it onto a public website or do the ownership rights stay with me? Just wondering and I hoped you could clear it up for me. Thanks.

Reposted Story

I am trying to post a story and it's now being removed because it's a reupload? i am trying to fix it so it isn't a wall o text as the other guy said. and i don't remember how to edit. and it doesn't help when the story is taken down because i am trying to post a damn story? help rather than removing my content maybe? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tau Epsilon (talkcontribs).

Quick Question

Hey Empy,

How do I put a {By-User} tag on a story that actually works? I tried on a story two times, and I didn't really seem to work correctly. So if you can give me exactly how to do it, that would be very helpful.

Best,

JohnathanNash (talk) 01:59, May 12, 2019 (UTC)

Regarding Recent Edits

Hi there. I was the one going through some articles clearing the notes that followed along the lines of "this is my first creepypasta." I asked Cleric in the Discord before doing so, and he responded by saying unless it was directly tied to the story somehow, then I could probably get away with it. But I will stop if that is the correct thing to do.

RedNovaTyrant (talk) 23:54, May 14, 2019 (UTC)

That's alright, haha. It's a good idea, it was just something I was seeing and it just didn't look too fantastic. Just trying to help. Have a good one. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 00:00, May 15, 2019 (UTC)

Hey man,

How many stories do I have to have to get my own category? And if I meet the limit would you be the person to reach out to make that for me?

Best,

I would definitely appreciate it if you would do that.

Wow you're orange again?!

Hi Empy, it's Lorena, aka the former Dinkleberg loser, aka the person who couldn't decide her username for 5 years, aka the one that made a thread that was made somehow completely out of my character. But now I'm settled on identifying myself online with this username pretty much everywhere online.

So, how's it going? Are you having fun here again?

If you're wondering how I'm doing, I'm fine and not fine at once. I removed almost all of my online presence, especially anything related from my past self. My social life has been destroyed and my mental illnesses keeps coming back and forth, but fortunately I am able to manage them.

On the good side, I will soon quit my college program and I will hopefully start studying Broadcasting TV/Videography in a different college in the same city. Last month I was in Chicago and spent a few days walking around downtown and recording footage for practice, and I may finally get the hormones I want real bad in two months. And although I will likely not write anything for this site or be active here at all, I am excited to go back on writing when I go to my new program, and I'm glad I learned many writing basics when writing for this site. It helped me to make technically solid stories that will help me in the future. Londafettuc (talk) 05:03, May 17, 2019 (UTC)

Category template

I tried testing the template on one of my stories, but it seems to have just removed the categories from the infobox.

 Can I have a link to the story that got deleted yesterday? PuGlOvEr1890 00:37, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

Can I have a link to. My story I think it was called cutie patrik and lucaPuGlOvEr1890 00:38, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

Category Question

I noticed you edited a story because it was under both "Demon/Devil" and "Animals" in reference to the same entity. I've actually been meaning to ask you and Cleric about these categories, because I have not found any rule anywhere stating that Animals should not be added to one of the Beings categories.

I'd suggest maybe creating the rule along the same line as the one for "Items/Objects" and "Vehicles" namely, that while they aren't outright mutually exclusive, "Animals" should not be applied to refer to the same entity as "Beings" or one of the Beings subcategories, particularly "Cryptids."

So then, under such a rule, my story Silent Spring could stay under both "Cryptids" and "Animals" since it both deals with a mysterious cryptid and the strange behavior of real animals, but my story The Spider on the Television would have to go under either "Demon/Devil" or "Animals" since both refer to the spider.

What I'm saying is the rule doesn't appear to be text-codified anywhere. I've looked on all the relevant category pages and through the rules on the genre listing page, and there's nothing that makes the precedent publicly known that I can find.

Concerning the Frankenstein Page

Afternoon to ya. As I was random page jumping, I came across the Frankenstein article and give it a quick skim. I noticed that the prologue did not appear to be there (the start of the letters from the sea captain before Victor arrived on the ship). Is this an error, was it never posted, or is this simply a different version? Just double checking. Have a good one. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 18:23, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

It's all good, t'was just something I noticed. Whenever you get a chance, then. And good luck with your exams. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 13:59, May 29, 2019 (UTC)

I would like you to take a look at a creepypasta I wrote and maybe consider letting be on the wiki.

A Question Regarding Fixing Stories

Hey again. As I'm trying to learn more of the site's stipulations on running the place in the hopes of being more (correctly) helpful, I have a question regarding edits to older stories on the wiki.

Is there an age for a story that even if it doesn't necessarily meet today's QS should be left alone? (i.e. a poorer story that was written in 2014 or something of the like?) If so, what time period should I avoid making major edits to a story, or avoid marking a story for review?

I also noticed you did find the opening letters for Frankenstein, happy to see them up. And hope your exams went well. Thank you again. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 14:05, June 6, 2019 (UTC)

Ah yes, Helel mentioned avoiding stylistic changes to me once. And I completely understand keeping some for historical significance, but thank you for the clarification. I'll take a look again through Frankenstein when I get a chance, but I think it's pretty down pat at this point. Thanks once again for everything, and good luck on the exams to come then haha.

Why does "Wanksta" fall under the trollpasta category?

Trollpasta/CP -- Wanksta

I don't know why my pasta was considered to be a trollpasta —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wankstuh (talkcontribs).

hello i would like to inqire about something regarding blogs i want to make sure i dont break any rules so i came to you before writing it because you were the first person listed on the administrator page. i am not that good at writing horror but i had an idea that i think that, in the hands of a good writer could be made into a really good story but i dont want to get in trouble by accedentaly braking the rules, am i allowed to post the idea on a blog asking for somone to try and use it since i could not do it myself? thanks in advance Eeveeboi71 (talk) 00:21, June 9, 2019 (UTC)Eeveeboi71

Dear Empy,

It’s sounds weird saying this, but thank you for banning me. I was going out of control making little one word edits on my story to get on the RA feed, and I would have continued in kind if you hadn’t banned me (which actually helped me because I took time to carefully read the rules and wiki guidelines.) Sorry for spamming edits and I promise you it won’t happen again. Have a nice day!

𝓚𝓻𝓪𝔃𝔂 (talk) 01:11, June 9, 2019 (UTC)

Excuse me but how come you deleted a bunch of the stories I uploaded? I’m pretty sure they were in the public domain but if not I’m so sorry for my mistake!

6Chaos6Herald6 (talk) 05:35, June 10, 2019 (UTC)

Public domain

Thanks for the tip. I’m going to start posting my original works. I posted classic ghost/horror stories I liked because they weren’t already available on this wiki but I thought they deserved more attention. And really, thank you so much for not banning me. I’ve learned my lesson

Btw is it safe to assume if a story is on wiki source it’s in public domain? So if I were to continue to post classic stories make sure they’re on wiki source, to be safe?

(P.s., I actually thought dickens first attempt at horror wasn’t too bad)

6Chaos6Herald6 (talk) 14:52, June 10, 2019 (UTC)

I just found a bunch of stories I previously uploaded and marked them for deletion

Can I make my own category yet?

Hey Empy,

I just uploaded my tenth pasta, Foot and Mouth, and I was wondering if I could get a green light for making my own author category. All ten stories are original, non-Reddit, never posted anywhere else, as per the requirements. They're all linked on my profile if you want to check. If there's an issue, please let me know.

Question Regarding Giving Credit

Hello again; hope your exams are going/went well. I had another question regarding editing. If I come across a story without any given credit, such as this, but doesn't say "Unknown author", should I add one for the person who created the page or leave it blank? Now if you say to ask the author first whether they created it or not, what should I do if they do not respond or haven't been active for some time? Thanks again. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 14:18, June 12, 2019 (UTC)

Alright then. Thanks for the clarification. (I don't mean this in a rude way, but it seems like there's not a whole lot to be done in regards to older stories haha, but I understand why.) RedNovaTyrant (talk) 14:51, June 12, 2019 (UTC)

Idle M4Rs

Hey hey. I'm here for the Daily Bugging of the Admin. I was looking through the M4R category, and noticed two stories that have marked for about a month. Just wanting to bring them to someone's attention:

Read Along With Me - Marked on May 13; last edit made on May 16

The Wolf That Howled - Marked May 18; last edit made on June 7

No rush, I imagine you're busy carrying the weight of the Wiki as is haha. I'll see ya around. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 13:53, June 13, 2019 (UTC)

Gotcha. Just thought they might have been forgotten since they were there for so long. Thanks! RedNovaTyrant (talk) 14:13, June 13, 2019 (UTC)
Goodness! That's an awful lot. Hope it all goes well, and sorry for all the bugging lately. Godspeed friend. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 14:36, June 13, 2019 (UTC)

Hello,

I wanted to talk about the Spinoffs or the blacklisted content. Now, i wanted to make a page called "Neverending Hallways". The story is not about a haunted game, it's about a... Well a plain game. It's also said that Science is a good way to write stories. The game is based on a Therapist's game. It is not haunted. Please approve it.

Question Number... Something

Yup, me again. I figured I'd come to you since you've been here for so long, so you'd probably know. Whatever happened to the wiki's fourth collab? I see the third one, Hallowroots, on the front page, and the fifth is nearly done, but I never hear anything about number four. Was it cancelled or never finished? Or would someone else know more? Just curious. Peace, and thanks! RedNovaTyrant (talk) 17:44, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

Alright, thanks for the help :) RedNovaTyrant (talk) 17:57, June 24, 2019 (UTC)

Videos Category

Hello, good day, yadda yadda yadda. If I am going through pages and find one with a .gif, does that count as a video and should have the Videos tag, or is it just an image? Just wanting to make sure. I've mostly been going by the criteria of "if it has a play button, it's a video". Thanks. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 13:14, June 25, 2019 (UTC)

Alright, glad I was right in that. I went looking under Genre Listing for its extra ruling, but thank you for the confirmation. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 13:27, June 25, 2019 (UTC)

Tro-lo-lo-lo Wiki Relations Question

I'm still here. I noticed that you had banned King claw 1 for spam pages, as they had coming, but I also took notice to the template used for notifying someone to this. There is a link and reference to the Trollpasta wiki, though it is now closed down. Should something be done about updating that, along with any other mentions or links to the TPW, be it removing them entirely or linking to somewhere else? Just a thought. (Perhaps this would be better if discussed on the forum instead) RedNovaTyrant (talk) 19:01, June 26, 2019 (UTC)

Ah, gotcha. Yeah, I understand not sending people to sites we're aren't very brotherly with. Sorry to bother about it then. See ya. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 19:16, June 26, 2019 (UTC)

Vandalism Report

This user just vandalized the page "NPC" by adding various errors, changing credit to their name, and noting the change asa "lol". RedNovaTyrant (talk) 13:34, June 27, 2019 (UTC)

Question of the Day: Subpages (?)

Title says it all. I've seen some examples (or so I think I have), such as staff role applications or Hopeless' deletion log (it showed up in wiki activity so I just took a look). I was wondering if you could explain how one is made, and what rules apply to them, or when they are allowed to be made? Thanks :) RedNovaTyrant (talk) 16:55, June 27, 2019 (UTC)

Ahhhh, okay. So "technically", I can create a subpage for anything, so long as it falls within Fandom's TOS and the wiki's rules? That's good to know then. I was thinking of making one just to remind myself of vandalism cases I've helped fix, as sometimes my memory fails me miserably, so it'd be good to keep track of for if the time comes to try for rollback possibly. Well, thank you again very much. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 17:16, June 27, 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I know you aren't looking for specific examples when it comes to the application. I just need to write them down so that I can remember how many instances I was involved with. Again, very bad memory at times. RedNovaTyrant (talk) 17:22, June 27, 2019 (UTC)

Oh, ok. I'm sorry, and will try not to do it again. Thanks for telling me.

Hermann T

Sooo, yeah, i wrote ‘Hermann T’ a very long time ago and i knew there were punctuation errors and plot holes, i know i need some help with improving it. Update: I didnt mean to reupload the pasta, i think i was editing the page when you first deleted it.

Deleted creepypasta

Hello sir, may I ask why is my story deleted? It was called "Air Smells Suicide Today." 

quick check

hey there, empy! figured i'd give a quick check to the wiki after all the years i've been inactive. really writing this message out of impulse, to be honest; i'm just so curious as to how things are in the site lately. i did some checking around the wiki, and i'm seeing quite a lot of shit has changed since i last visited. it's like a completely different place from what i remember back in the days.

well, really that's all man. just wanted to peek a bit on you all. hope you're all doing just fine out there! stay kicking :D
