BAM!

I archived your old talk page, since it was a very long one and its size was annoying.Jamés the chapeist Send a message to Al Chapé here! 22:43, October 28, 2014 (UTC)

Ban

I was banned for joking about age...please lift ban.

Awesome!

Thank you for accepting. I promise you it'll be awesome.

Now, we have a month to figure it out, so we can run down a few of the basics. First off, we have the same basic options for conducting the interview. We can do it through email, like when you interviewed me, or we can do it through Skype, like when I interviewed Dubious.

The pro's and con's are pretty simple.

Skype gives me a chance to not only ask you the basic questions, but to also add caveats to answers you are giving, or follow ups to certain comments. This tends to make for a fuller interview, but it also requires a more "on the spot" Q&A, which can be a bit nerve racking for some people. It would also require us to sit down at the same time to conduct it, thus having to coordinate times and such. Of course, we have over a month to complete this, so maybe that isn't that big a deal. (Dubious and I did the interview over the course of a few conversations.)

Email is the other option. Pro is that it gives you all the time you need to think out your answers on your own schedule, which in many ways is easier. It also takes away the stress of feeling that you must answer on the spot. Con for that is it limits a lot of the natural flow of conversation, as I do build many of my questions off of the question before it. Of course, it is always possible to simply apply caveat questions in follow up emails, still giving it that natural flow.

Either way, the choice is yours. As I did, if you would like to email me a short bio about yourself, sort of highlighting elements of yourself that you feel would enhance the questions, please do. If there are any specific stories you've written that you would like me to highlight, also include those.

Again, thanks so much Sal for agreeing to do the interview.

Best,

In case you didn't see Banning's page, I cannot allow back-to-back interviews with the same people. Sorry, Sal. Nothing personal at all. I just need to keep the community in mind here, and this might look fishy to users. Chin up, though. I have a feeling you'll be interviewed down the road, soon enough.
Also, do you have November's interview ready to go? Please let me know how it is progressing. If it's not done, I'll have to think quickly on a solution. Take care. Mystreve (talk) 11:23, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

Re:

You can put it up anytime you want. According to the site clock, (3:04 A.M. Nov. 1st) you can even upload it now. Then again there really isn't any time constraints. I just set the upload day for the 1st to prevent someone from uploading an interview weeks in advance and 'stealing another user's thunder' so-to-speak or in the middle of the month and users not having time to read it before the next one goes up. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 03:06, November 1, 2014 (UTC)

Great interview

Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job. It's not an easy task to make me sound interesting..lol, but you pulled it off.

A couple of suggested edits though. I think you need to place the Staff Blog in the actual category box, as it is currently only showing up on the regular user blogs.

Also, within the interview when I reference my specific story titles, could you please make those into internal links to the stories themselves, so that readers can click them and check out my work.

Thanks again for doing an amazing interview. Happy Halloween!

Best,

--Banningk1979 (talk) 06:59, November 1, 2014 (UTC)

Love your work! Keep doing what you do. :)

Greyowl,

Hey, I'm a lesser known writer here on the wiki but as of late have written some pasta that have been narrated and have gainned the attention of a few well-known writers here.  I was hoping that if you had time, you might review a pasta that I posted in the writers workshop.  It was supposed to be a novella.  I'm at 10,000 words an have just begun the story really.  It's a detective noir story set in modern times.  I have a close detective friend who gave me insight on the details of the life of a hommicide investigator and standard protocol for a hommicide investigation.  Again, I'm not done.  It's still early enough in to where I can still welcome critique from those willing to give it.  If you can read it, awesome.  If not, thanks for your time in reading this.  It's all good.  Thank you.


Update: It's done if you'd like to take a gander.  Thanks!

Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed some your stores I read here tonight.

--rage. (talk) 08:34, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Hopefully it's possible.

I know it might seem a bit annoying, but could you perhaps take a look at my recent thread? I would very much appreciate some help from local editors and writers I enjoy reading. If you do thank you, even if it's just a look I appreciate the time. Maybe review my other reads too? Anywho, thanks again and I hope to see more from you soon. :)

Activity Warning

Hi. Just so you know, you haven't made any article edits since November of last year. Users with rollback rights are expected to be some of the most active on the wiki, and to set an example for other users. We really need you to be more active than you currently are. If you do want to retain your user rights, please become more active. If you do not, please contact a bureaucrat to have your rights removed. Regards, Underscorre - Talk to me 19:41, January 9, 2015 (UTC)

By the way, sorry if this came out as threatening. Your activity is (obviously) your choice, it's just useful to us for the rollbacks to be helping out. I'm glad to see that you edited articles yesterday, it's good to have you back. Regards, Underscorre - Talk to me 19:03, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

New story, so ya know I need that review

Hey Sal,

Been a while, hope all is well with you. Well, I got a new story out there,

For Love and Hot Chocolate

Would really love a review at your earliest opportunity.

Hi, GreyOwl

Hi.  I noticed you review a lot of stories and always leave very constructive feedback, so I was wondering if you would review a pasta of mine- The Abalone Thief.  I am also a big fan of your pasta.  If this is an unwelcome intrusion please just let me know and I won't ever bug you again.  Thanks for your time.

Review of course

Hey, new story posted, Tobit: The Bleeding Sky. If you get a chance, please give it a read and let me know your thoughts.

Banningk1979 (talk) 01:57, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

Review request please

I think I've got a couple out that need your discerning eye. 

Tobit: The Bleeding Sky and its sequel Tobit: Blood and Obligations.

Whenever you get a chance, check 'em out and let me know what you think.

Banningk1979 (talk) 07:44, February 26, 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the reviews

Hey Sal,

Thanks for the glowing reviews to both of my stories, very much appreciated. The next chapter should be up sometime in March. I am giving myeslf a short break from writing this week so that I can recharge the creative batteries. Again, thank you so much for the support.

Also, For Love and Hot Chocolate is nominated for PoTM, so please show it some support, lol.

Best,

New Story

Hey, Grey! I've got a new story I'd love to get your feedback on if you have time. Thanks! The Lonely Stars Shadowswimmer77 (talk) 19:42, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

Ha, I guess it has been a while.  If you want more, I finally finished The Soldier which I believe you read the first several parts of (warning...it turned into a small novella) and I have two shorter stories Petals and A Bad Night that were my semi-final and final entries to Blacknumber's freestyle contest.  Please feel more than free to take a look at any or all of them if you are so inclined.  Obviously if you have any of your stuff in particular you'd like me to read, I'd be more than happy to; your writing is still some of the smoothest I've found on this site.  Last but not least, the Wicker House is up for PotM...if you haven't voted yet, it needs all the help it can get (Banning is killing it so far)!  Thanks again, and hope all's good with you.

Marked for Review

Hey, when marking stories for review, it would be great if you could use the M4R template. You just add it to the top of the article you're M4R'ing, replacing reason with the reason why you're marking it for review. This automatically adds the Marked for Review category, and makes it easier for other editors to understand what's wrong with a story and fix this.

Stories

I just wanted to stop by and say that I really like your stories. The ones that I've read so far (Sirens, Room 250, It's So Cold, and The Raffle) are unique in premise. Despite a nitpick or two, The Raffle is among my favorite pasta. I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for any new pasta you put out after I finish reading what you've got posted. Feel free to let me know if you make any more and never quit, because you are very talented :) Buckle up! I'm going to be popular! 03:17, May 29, 2015 (UTC)

That sucks, I can relate to that though. Just try to keep writing for yourself and think of it as more experience gained, that's how I manage when I don't get feedback. I am very happy that you are pursuing the plots you wrote down, it would have been a massive waste for you not to have. Try not to sell yourself short, because you are a very skilled writer. Your attention to detail, unique plots and grammar are all nothing short of amazing. Let me know when you finish your next pasta and I'll be happy to give it a read. Keep chipping away, GreyOwl :)Buckle up! I'm going to be popular! 15:50, May 29, 2015 (UTC)

Writing contest!

Hey,

Just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am hosting a Demon/Devil writing contest. I have a blog up that explains that whole deal, you can check it out here Official Contest Page.

I know you haven't written in a while, but I also know that you're one of the best on this page, and I would love to see what you come up with. The contest is open to entries until July 15th, so there is plenty of time. I hope you'll consider entering.

Best,

Banningk1979 (talk) 17:01, June 10, 2015 (UTC)

Credit

My writing usually suffers from my characters having a lack of personality, as such I have been studying your writing which I feel does personalities really well. Although my current story still is of my own style, I feel that it has been influenced quite a bit by your writings. I was wondering if you would be okay with me referring to your stories as inspirations in an author's note for my upcoming contest entry "The Endeavor"? I'd feel a bit bad if I didn't since I feel like my writing has evolved a bit thanks to yours; thanks for that :)

It isn't finished yet, but you can read it here: http://pastebin.com/pP8ynxRH Thanks again, GreyOwl! Keep writing :) Buckle up! I'm going to be popular! 06:27, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

Review Requests

Hey Sal,

I was wondering if you've ever gotten around to reading my newer Tobit stories. You're reviews are very valued by me and I am hoping to get some fresh feedback, as I plan of trying to potentially publish those stories once I finish the series. 

Let me know if you can find some time to squeeze ol' Tobit into your schedule.

More Pasta

Hey GreyOwl! I was wondering if you were currently writing more pasta or had plans to do so. There aren't any stories like yours on the wiki, I really like your habit of taking monsters/beings and making them more human or in the right than the humans. You are really talented at giving your characters emotion and personality, I'm jealous of that XD Not trying to pressure you into writing more, I was just wondering :) Buckle up I'm going to be popular 00:48, August 31, 2015 (UTC)

He may not want to pressure you, so I will. Write!!
P.S. We miss you.
Jay Ten (talk) 00:59, August 31, 2015 (UTC)

Jumping on the "feels" bandwagon

Sal,

You are indeed missed around here. I understand exactly how you feel about low traffic on your stories. I deal with it too, as some of mine that have been on here over a year have only ten or so comments, half of which were replies from me. So I certainly get the feeling. 

I miss your feedback on my stories, as you gave some of the best reviews, and it showed that you really read everything line by line, and that was always appreciated. 

You'll always have a fan in me, so you know I'll read and review anything you post. 

Banningk1979 (talk) 03:25, August 31, 2015 (UTC)

I too know the feeling. I've written twelve pastas at this point and they probably average out to be around 6 comments each, with me making up half through replies. I've read most of your pasta, but haven't commented on some that I've read, I could start doing that if you like. If you ever get your novel published let me know and I'll be sure to look into it :) Also, be sure to check out On Writing by Stephen King as it goes over how to get a publisher and some bits about publishing. Buckle up I'm going to be popular 04:00, August 31, 2015 (UTC)

New Stand-Alone pasta

Sal,

Just finished my first stand-alone is some time. Figured you could give me some of that time tested feedback.

Queen Justine and the Cutest Little Shing

Thanks,

--Banningk1979 (talk) 08:00, September 12, 2015 (UTC)

Would you like your own Top Ten?

Hello GreyOwl! I am contacting you to ask if you would like a top ten list pertaining to the best stories that you have written or released on this wikia.

I started doing top tens for users a while ago, and when I made this blog to ask the people of the wikia who was deserving of a top ten, your name came up a few times. In the most recent blog I released, in which I counted down the best work of BanningK1979, both you and Blacknumber1 were highly requested as my next list in the comments section. 

By means of a coin toss, it was decided that you are next... with one condition. I would like your permission to do this. Otherwise it would just feel wrong.

Thanks for your time! Let me know what you think!

SnakeTongue (Jack Crayven) (talk) 21:38, November 15, 2015 (UTC)

Tobit reviews

Hey Sal,

Just wanted to start off by saying congrats on getting your Top Ten list coming out soon. You deserve it, and I hope it brings some well earned exposure to your stories. I also wanted to ask when you think you might get around to reviewing the rest of my Tobit stories. I was loving your reviews and was looking forward to seeing the rest of them. I think I'll start my next Tobit chapter soon, so hopefully that happens.

Also, could you leave me your thoughts on Queen Justine and the Cutest Little Shing. It's a rather bold pasta that goes into some conterverial current events, and I would love to read your thoughts on it. 

Well, I think I'm tapped out on asking you for favors for one night. Hope to hear back from you soon.

Thanks for the review

Thank you for the awesome reviews on my latest Tobits. Your feedback is always deeply appreciated. Of course, if you're feeling really brave, check out my Jeff the Killer re-write, lol.

K. Banning Kellum (talk) 01:50, December 10, 2015 (UTC)

Glad you enjoyed Jeff

As always, your review left me feeling pretty revived. Honestly, the general backlash took me by surprise a bit. I am glad that you picked up on the subtle nuances though, as the design was to show that Jeff and Liu were essentially alone in their stuggles, with the town, the bullies and their own parents turning their backs on them in one form or another. 

As always, I am beyond pleased that you enjoyed my work, thanks for reading. My new job schedule is brutal. I recently started work for the USPS, and the hours are nuts. Sure, the money is amazing, but working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week is almost more than I bargained for. So, I've been on here a lot less because of it. I am not sure what impact these new hours will have on my regular writing, but I am hoping that after the holiday season, things level out and I start getting normal time off. Then I can move on to my next Tobit chapter.

Thanks again for the kind words and postive review! Your opinion is highly valued in my writing.

K. Banning Kellum (talk) 11:30, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

Good News!

Your Top Ten is now complete! It's been a pleasure working with you.

SnakeTongue (Jack Crayven) (talk) 21:19, January 2, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks

Glad to see you got the narration on your page :P The coding for videos is such a pain. Today I learned that you can insert it as a thumbnail, so thanks for that (I was trying to help you out with that in the preview function, but failed miserably). I am glad to see that Aesthetically Pleasing is beginning to get the attention it deserves. It's still my favorite thing that you've written (though that's a hard claim to make between it and The Raffle.

So, how have things been? Any luck with the pen? Oh, thanks by the way for helping improve my writing! I can't remember if I ever thanked you for that or not, but I learned to make better characters from reading your stories; you truly helped me out a ton. So thank you for helping me out. I still can't make characters anywhere near as characterized as you manage to (always like how you manage to make the monsters more human than the humans are). Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 07:28, February 15, 2016 (UTC)

I think I understand some of your lack of motivation. It's super frustrating when you put your heart, effort, and soul into a story only for things like Sonic.exe to be super popular. I could be wrong and you might not feel motivated for different reasons, but that just always does it for me. I think Banning has it pretty down pat on how we should feel about these things (even if we don't). Banning once told me that he writes for himself and he doesn't really care if anyone hates his stories, so long as he likes them. A good attitude to have in a lot of respects, I think, but an audience helps a lot too. Like, I just really want my stories to spread and a lot of people to enjoy them, you know? I don't really care if I myself become super popular or not (it isn't like I'm using my real name, lol), just my stories. I wish there was some way that we could see how many people have viewed our pages and finished them, that ego boost would help. As it stands now, we only have the reviews to go by.
I'd recommend starting with The Endeavor as not only did it get nominated for Pasta of the Month, but I credited you in it. Speaking of Pasta of the Month, did you know that Aesthetically Pleasing was actually nominated for this month's voting? Anyway, even if you never put out another story ever again, I think it'd be a good thing if you stuck around here. Not to stroke your ego or anything, but I feel like you could really help some writers improve as you've helped me and this wiki could always use better writers. Banning is good with his universe building, Humboldt is great with his gory and lusty works, and you excel with characterization. You each have your own distinguished styles and I'm really jealous of that XD Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 01:09, February 16, 2016 (UTC)
I forgot about insights being a thing, because you can't search for stories, but on a hunch I found out that Aesthetically Pleasing was within the first 3 pages; page 2 actually. It has 67 views so far this week: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Insights/popularpages?page=2 Don't know if the views are unique though, but it has been looked at a good amount if weeks are defined by the start of every Sunday.
Thank you. I apologize if it came across as bragging, I just meant it as a "this is how far I got because I learned from you" type way. I'd say it has a good chance of winning since the admin are in charge of voting and thus all users who vote will actually have to read the stories (I think it'd come in second at worst and I genuinely mean that). That's neat, I'm glad to have helped XD Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 04:37, February 16, 2016 (UTC)
I'll be rooting for it to win all the same XD Ah, I actually lost to the same pasta that I lost to (which got first) in the contest that I wrote The Endeavor for (I'll beat you one of these days, my friend and rival, Humboldt!). Well, I'll leave you to your writing :D Don't hesitate to drop by and start chatting with me at any time! Buckle up! I'm going to be popular 05:11, February 16, 2016 (UTC)

Edits

Thanks for chipping in with the edits lately. Just a heads-up though, really the only time ellipses should be joined is if it's a pause in a word, "Li...ke this.". Otherwise it should be spaced as as they're two separate words. ("Like... this.") Keep up the good work. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 20:14, March 8, 2016 (UTC)

To be honest, it's all subjective and the more research you put in, the more iffy it gets. (Traditionally, no one is using correctly as they're meant to denote omission of words.) I tend to just leave ellipses alone when I find them as they're are multiple styles/methods that people subscribe to and it can become an issue like region-specific spelling. I typically just check to make sure they're not being overused (One story that was five paragraphs long once used 50+ ellipses.). Once more, thanks for the edits. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 20:31, March 8, 2016 (UTC)

Feedback of course!

Hey,

Re:

Thanks for the welcome. I'm definitely glad to see you back around as well. Sorry I wasn't here, but I'm guessing you saw in my blog that it's been a roller coaster these past couple months. I hated to abandon the place, but I just got overwhelmed I guess. If you need anything, feel free to message me.

Jay Ten (talk) 11:52, April 8, 2016 (UTC)

Hello GreyOwl, After receiving your kind words I checked out your profile which led me to a list of your works. I was mesmerized just with the few pieces I read! What an amazing talent you have for storytelling. Im hooked.

Now I value and treasure any feedback from anyone, but encouragement from ones of your caliper really gives us new ones a sense of accomplishment. It's those experiences that fuel the machine that will write tomorrow's even better story. KillaHawke1 (talk) 21:00, April 13, 2016 (UTC)

Edits AMMENDED: All aboard the Emp stupidity train

Sorry for not messaging you sooner, but I just wanted to mention that the wiki accepts both British and English methods of spelling (defence/defense, colour/color, realise/realize) so there isn't really any need to correct those as both forms are considered correct here. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 01:18, April 19, 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, from your edits it looked like you were changing the spelling when in fact you were making it uniform to agree with the author's spelling style. Sorry about that, every now and then, I have to correct these issues so my apologies for jumping the gun there and assuming it was incorrect when you were in the right. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 01:35, April 19, 2016 (UTC)

Aesthetically Pleasing

Hello, I'm Dee Dust, and I am incredibly sorry. I did a reading of Aesthetically Pleasing, and I forgot to ask if it was alright with you first. My appologies, I only noticed I hadn't when I came to share the link. I'm usually good at keeping things straight but I think I confused you with another author who gave me permission. I am sorry, may I have your permission to do a recording of your stories? I give credit to authors and link back to them for any viewers who want to read the story themselves. DeeDust (talk) 13:12, May 23, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you! I just like to ask first. It seems polite especially with such wonderful stories. I do love the way this story bends around to take on a whole new meaning of natural beauty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gW6DF0KaK_c DeeDust (talk) 04:11, May 24, 2016 (UTC)

Hey there.

I made a reading of your latest. Hope it's alright.

Drive-By Gallery Addition

Hi there! I put all your narrations into a gallery. Hope you don't mind. I was doing it with my own stuff and I remember seeing that yours weren't really arranged so nice and I think it looks much better this way. Feel free to undo or rearrange or whatever.

Would love some feedback from my favorite author/reviewer.

I did as you requested and deleted your story. Let me know if you need anything else. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 20:02, July 3, 2016 (UTC)

Forgot the header--new story review

Hey, I sent you a message the other day about a new story asking for a review. I forgot to head it, and it may have gotten lost in the shuffle. Anyway, if you did see the message, sorry for pestering you, but in case you didn't, I was wondering if you'd read and review my latest story and entry into Whitix's contest:

The Unkillable Kenny Leonard

Thanks,

Just a Question

Hey I Just Wanted to know if there's anything against posting a bunch of stories in a short period.

Thank you in advance for answering.

Hola

Just checking in to see how you've been. It's been a while since I talked to you. Didn't know if you saw any of my blogs about moving and whatnot. Anyway, I live in Puerto Rico now. Nice to see your name in the feed. Hope all is well with you.

I am so glad you liked it. I alway hope to exceed an author's expectation with a narration I do. KillaHawke1 (talk) 05:13, August 4, 2016 (UTC)

Request

Hey GreyOwl, sorry to bug you, but I think you're one of the few people who can help me out in this situation. I'm trying to publish a story, but I forgot that I had uploaded it to the crst wiki. Unfortunately I don't have rights there, but I noticed you're a VCROCon that wiki which means you can delete pages. I'm wondering if you can help me out and delete the page I linked to as I'm trying to get it e-published and I don't want any reason for Amazon to turn down the request. Thanks, EmpyrealInvective (talk) 16:10, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

Final Tobit Story Posted!

Well, the journey is over and the last Tobit chapter is up. As always, I come seeking feedback.

Best,

K. Banning Kellum (talk) 18:59, September 23, 2016 (UTC)



Hello Sal!

My name is Hailey Sawyer and I was wondering if you could take a look at a story I'm currently working on. So far, it contains about 14 chapters so I can send you a certain amount of chapters per message if that will make reviewing the story easier for you. The story is called A Trip to Cape Cod That I Won’t Forget (Originally called R.L Stine’s: The Haunting Hour Season 4 Episode 13) and it's basically a lost episode pasta that goes for a more psychological approach. I've made sure to use as few cliches as possible and to correct any grammar error I see. If you're interested in reviewing the story, let me know and I'll send you the first three or four chapters.

Heeere's Hailey! Wanna Talk? 01:59, December 18, 2016 (UTC)

Hey, new stories up

Sal,

I know it's been a while, not sure if you're still checking in, but I figured I'd let you know about the new works I have, and of course, would love your review.

The final Tobit story was written: Tobit: Hyraaq Tobit

This is a stand alone I wrote here: The Doctor and the Coffin Song

And this is my entry into a Dark Humor contest: Dinner with Vivianna

Would love your thoughts on them,

Best,

--K. Banning Kellum (talk) 23:04, February 9, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, looking forward to it!

And you know I love your reviews. Can't wait for the feedback!

K. Banning Kellum (talk) 18:27, February 17, 2017 (UTC)

Heyo

Hey GreyOwl. If you see this, can you please contact me at mrdupincp@gmail.com? I want to talk to you about featuring you on the front page, if you're interested. MrDupin (talk) 21:56, March 7, 2017 (UTC)

Good to Hear from You

Saw your message. I really appreciate that. I'm really glad my simple message meant something to you. I am here to ask for permission to put your stories on my new site. The site is rather broad, but stories are a big part of it. I don't want to take too much from this wiki, but I don't see anything wrong with asking my friends. Anyway, let me know and come check out the site if you like - The Horror Network. If you'd rather them stay here, I totally understand and won't be offended, but I wanted to ask. Hope to hear from you soon. Be safe.

Narrated stories

Hello, I have narrated a couple of your stories and wanted to link them to you if you would like to listen and add them to your story pages. You are an AMAZING writer, please do keep it up!

Unbearable

They've Changed

Thank you!

I am so glad you liked the narrations, I have more of your stories on my list so when I get to them I will contact you once again!

Hi GreyOwl I was wondering if you were gonna make a sequel to sirens it is a really good Pasta and if you had time can you please make the sequel

New Wicker Saga Story

Hey, Grey! If/when you have the time, hoped you might check out my new Wicker Saga story Sins of the Father.  Thanks in advance!

Shadowswimmer77 (talk) 13:24, September 21, 2017 (UTC)

Categories

Hey, I just thought I'd let you know that we recently decided to create an author category for users who have 10+ stories posted on the wiki. Feel free to check out that link and message one of us/leave a post on the forum if you have any interest. Have a good one. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 00:27, October 18, 2017 (UTC)

Inactivity

I've done admin reviews, and now other rights have fallen under review. I have noticed a several months gap in activity and was wondering if you still wished to retain your rights as Rollback. Please feel free to respond (or not) to this as soon as possible or your rights will be removed as per the inactivity policy.

ClericofMadness (talk) 05:49, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

Dropping by to say Hi!

Ain't every day you see a veteran user returning after a long hiatus.

I'm glad you decided to come back, Grey.

Helel ben Shahaar (talk) 09:13, June 17, 2018 (UTC)

Thought I'd piggyback off Helel by introducing myself and welcome you back as well!

Hello fellow owl

hi, I'm HopelessNightOwl. I believe I started becoming really active around here right around when you went on hiatus. Nice to see you back.

Your friendly neighborhood night owl. (talk) 23:59, June 17, 2018 (UTC)

Hello (from the other side[of the looking glass]).

I'm just your neighborhood sandwich wiz kid stopping by to say hi. So I heard you've been on hiatus? And you've been here a lot longer than I have? (I am suffering from Severe Newbie Disorder. Yours truly is a 2018'er.)

Welp, certainly glad you're back. With this place, it's the more the merrier! (I think you could find Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, too, if you searched hard enough.) The One and Only Sandwich Wizard. (talk) 00:22, June 18, 2018 (UTC)

Long time

Hey Sal,

Glad to see you back. I've written a few new stories since the last time her were active and it felt really weird not sending you my usual desperate plea for feedback. Welcome back!

--K. Banning Kellum (talk) 23:33, June 18, 2018 (UTC)

Newer stuff

Here are links to my newer works. Whenever you have a chance, no rush. I'm not sure if you ever got around to the last Tobit chapter, but that one has been wrapped up for a while.

Tobit: Hyraaq Tobit

Total Universal Blackout

Cheers,

--K. Banning Kellum (talk) 03:59, June 19, 2018 (UTC)

New Era!

Hello, Sal.

I can't exactly tell how much you've been here recently, but a few things have changed since you were.

For one, we now have an unofficial Discord server. And, as a Rollback, your presence is expected there. 

Well, not really "expected", but it sure would be nice to have you there.

Second, we now have a system of User Categories. Considering the number of your stories, you are eligible for your own. If you want it, just say the word and I'll make it so.

Looking forward to seeing you in our ranks!

Helel ben Shahaar (talk) 14:37, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
