Old Man Emp Spoils Jay's Talk Page
Yeah, I was more focused on if they were self-nominating and not if it had already won. Good catch. Let me just hang my head in shame for a few minutes... EmpyrealInvective (talk) 23:48, April 13, 2015 (UTC)
Congrats on a successful admin campaign! Glad to see quality folks getting handed the reins.
The Sisters of Tobit have arrived
Newest Tobit story is up, please check out Tobit: The Grim Sorority of Tabitha Shaw.
Haha, yes it was my birthday! I had a lot of fun. Lots of food and drink. I'm not gonna lie, I get pretty sentimental on birthdays, just knowing how much family and friends I have, more than I realize the rest of the year. Thanks for your b-day wishes :) --PROCEEDS THE WEEDIAN - NAZARETH (talk) 14:55, April 15, 2015 (UTC)
I've been so out of the loop lately. I only just now realized you were promoted, lol. Anyway, congrats on getting admin! I'm glad there's still people crazy enough to do menial labor for free around here. Really sets my mind at ease :)
Seriously though, congrats. You've been such a tremendous help to the wiki lately, which I've been meaning to thank you for for a while now. You're still not getting a raise, though. LOLSKELETONS (talk) 16:29, April 16, 2015 (UTC)
So I see you were promoted to admin. I'm sooo jealous and not at the same time XD.
I guess even though I joined before (in my old account, SYD) ya and remember ya as a normal user, now I'm the one who's the normal and you're a boss xD
Hey, Jay. If you have time to check out my new story, I'd love some feedback. Thanks! A Figure in the Fog
Blog violating rules
Hey, just a minor thing, if you revert someone blanking their talk page, remember to warn them with Talkpage. Otherwise they'll just do it again and will have an excuse for doing so (they weren't warned).
- No problem. I just noticed Chiyami had blanked his/her talk again after you reverted them and wanted to make sure you knew for the future. « UnderScorre » 19:03, April 19, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the notice
Wow, I had no idea. I have seen so many writers use it (I've even seen it in Conan Doyle's work) that I assumed it really was a word. Thanks for letting me know. MrDupin (talk) 14:53, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
- I tried to find an answer online but nothing came up. I'll ask you if you've got no problem: Instead of the wrong 'overally', can I use 'in overall'? Using 'overall' in most cases seems kinda weird to me. MrDupin (talk) 15:00, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
Someone posted their story in the Writer's Showcase, here's the link. Always glad to help!
Thanks for pointing that put, I think I fixed it now! Thanks!

Ok, I will remember that. Thanks
I'm new to this page, and just posted a page, is there anything else I have to do
Boulder City Prison
Thanks again for looking over BCP and giving me advice. I ended up with more time than I thought tonight, so I finished the first revision of BCP: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:453883 I did leave the first instance of the blood because it brought up the dialogue with the first guard which I incorporated into the plot via the conversation with the 2nd guard. I'll remove the blood and rework the dialogue, if you don't like the way it is implemented. There's also no rush for you to look at it, I get that you're busy. Doom Vroom (talk) 04:38, April 26, 2015 (UTC)
IMO, those two sentences make sense on their own & joining them is a comma splice, but if you and Pretentious agree on it then I guess it's correct. Have a good day :)
- Also, noticed you keep linking to User blog:EmpyrealInvective/So I Deleted Your Pasta - An Overview. That page has actually been deleted - Emp's blog on the subject is now here (in writing advice). « UnderScorre » 15:45, April 26, 2015 (UTC)
Tobit series order
Great to hear from you. Congrats on becoming an Admin, in case I didn't already tell you.
So, to answer your question, I would say that The Demon Tobit of Delphia comes first. It introduces the characters of Hyraaq Tobit, Derrick Reynolds and Lance Madison, all who are featured in later installments of the Tobit Saga itself. Therefore, I would suggest people read The Demon first just to get familier with those names, as well as the city of Delphia and the general plot.
For Love and Hot Chocolate would come second, simply because it introduces the character of Mr. Pinkerton who goes on to have a larger impact in the Tobit Saga as well.
After that, Tobit: The Bleeding Sky kicks off the saga itself, and the rest of the series falls in proper order from there.
Hope that helps. I would expect to see the next Tobit installment show up sometime in May, as I am taking a couple weeks to sort of step back from writing and let my batteries recharge. I rolled out the last two Tobit stories fairly quickly, and want to make sure that the quality doesn't suffer in the name of speed.
Thanks for following my work and for the support.
I am not roleplaying my good sir. I am Laughing Jack and I am sorry but i need to let people know who i am that is why i did what i did. but i am sorry and i will not let my friends on my account and do that my good sir so good day and read som egood Creepypastas
Problemo with my Pasta
Hey jay, so I posted a new pasta at the writer's workshop, and all the text was wrapped in white. How do I get rid of it? I'm afraid it will make people not want to read it.
Have you managed to get your hands on the new Irvine Welsh book A Descent Ride? I pre-ordered it on Amazon but it's not being shipped for like three more weeks. I think it's out in Europe or something. Anyway, if you get a chance will you take a look at this tender and heart warming coming of age story? The Gym Teacher. I think you will really like this one, I even talk about The 120 Days of Sodom! HumboldtLycanthrope (talk) 23:17, April 29, 2015 (UTC)
Hey, why'd you remove the Age 11 bit from my title?
Yeah, could you put it there then? Thanks, I just feel it's essential.
I am writng on behalf my my creepypasta. The witches den. i was wondering if i could get a copy of the pasta as the one i have saved on my pc is not working correctly. and i can respect ur desicion to delte the pasta however i am very proud of it and would like to show my friends and family.
Thought you should know. :)
Thanks for the support brother, it's awesome that my story got featured!
A short answer
Could you give me an Answer?
It's about "The Chronicle of a Desaster", which was deleted by you
In which criteria i failed?
Storyline, Grammar or Spelling?
An Answer would be great, because then i could edit the Pasta and then hopefully fulfill the Standards.
Thanks for helping me test out that blocking question I had. I'm sure I could have asked someone, but it seemed easier to just ask an admin I trusted to test it out instead. Sorry for anyone's confusion reading this with questions. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 03:30, May 2, 2015 (UTC)
Sorry about the blog post, I just forgot to read the blog rules. I just thought of it as my own wall where I post random shit.
Hey there, what's up? My pasta didn't get any useful comments or reviews, which, I admit, is kind of disappointing considering how much work I put into it. I did receive some positive feedback on Facebook and other sites, but nothing here. Am I allowed to bump it, or perhaps resubmit it and try again? Or should I just go ahead and submit it to the Wiki without waiting for more reviews? RaidenDP1 (talk) 20:22, May 3, 2015 (UTC)
Hey, Jay! Sorry to be a bother again, but do you think you can add a category to my pasta for beings and entities, or something similar? I've deliberately left it ambiguous whether it's all in the protagonist's head, or if she's actually being haunted by something, and I don't want people to get the wrong impression after viewing the categories. Thanks! RaidenDP1 (talk) 22:01, May 3, 2015 (UTC)
Protected page has numerous errors
This page has numerous errors, but I can't edit it. Could you edit it for me (I can point out the mistakes, but they're pretty obvious), or there's nothing that can be done (as it's in the Historical Archive)? MrDupin (talk) 15:54, May 4, 2015 (UTC)
There is no need to say sorry my dear Jay i just needed you know that
There was a creepypasta video by Yuriyofwind on youtube. The one he did was Zelda AI, so i was bored and wondered if the page even existed, when i looked for it, i found it deleted, is there any way to get the content of the page Metalcornknight (talk) 20:44, May 5, 2015 (UTC)metalcornknight
I'm terribly sorry. I'll try not being so rude again.

Permission for a Contest/Suggestions
Hey Jay! I was wondering if I could have permission to start a "Fairytale Contest"! It's were I give them a fairytale to darken, you can modify anything, of course. Anyway, I was thinking someone could set up a contest guideline page, and a list of people to contact for permission. I woule like to not have any other contests going on with the Freestyle Competition, though. And any other offical competition. Thanks!
--01:48, May 7, 2015 (UTC)CrazyWords--
- Thanks Jay! 01:56, May 7, 2015 (UTC)CrazyWords
This pasta is currently protected from editing, but it needed changes, so I left a comment. Would you look at the comment and make the changes?
Okay, can you inform me if you ever set the guidelines up? I hope that that contest would "challenge" people's imagination or see how good they can write.
R*I*S*I*N*G*F*U*S*I*O*N 22:00, May 7, 2015 (UTC)
Ok, got it.
Here's the blog! Thanks Jay! 17:02, May 9, 2015 (UTC)CrazyWords
Damn! I saw it coming. Anyways, don't bother. I'll just rewrite the whole thing out, or I'll just write a better story.
Whaddya think?What do you think of this logo? Does it look much better? Waiting for your opinion, bruh!
- I don't know, but I'm thinking of moving the first E's middle thing lower, so it would really look like E. I dunno. Maybe that will work. RuckusQuantum 20:08, May 9, 2015 (UTC)
Can it be?! Have I been ninja'd in my own domain of deletion appeals? (Since I typed it up, I figured I'd post anyway. Don't mean to step on your toes. Thanks for helping out on the DA. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 17:47, May 11, 2015 (UTC)
- Nah, I think we can leave both up as you pointed out the semicolon issue and it shows that two admins looked over it and pointed out similar issues so it really isn't bias. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 19:24, May 11, 2015 (UTC)
It's all good
Yeah, I wasn't 100% sure how, or if, we were making categories for the contests. I saw that the category existed and figured I would use it just in case. Thanks for the correction.
Why was it deleted?
Just want to know why it was deleted.
Ok cool. Here's the thing with the story: it was meant to be a series of journal entries. The story was meant to be edited in much the same way as 1999 wasDarthWeezer1994 (talk) 23:12, May 14, 2015 (UTC)
Holy crap I didn't see that. Alright I got it. I came up with that story on the fly any way. I got better, more complete stories to upload. Thanks for your helpDarthWeezer1994 (talk) 23:28, May 14, 2015 (UTC)
Hey why did you delete my story "Hell isn't that bad"?? Desmond (Slender Resercher) 15:28, May 15, 2015 (UTC)Slender Reasearcher
Why doesnt my stroy reach the standards. Most creepypastas ive read on this page arent very creepy so why was mine deleted?!
Just got the new Irvine Welsh novel in the mail
it was shipped all the way from the U.K. When I get done with it maybe I'll post a review--no spoilers, I promise! Also, if you get a chance, check out my entry for CrazyWords' Fairy Tale Challenge: Nightingale. Thanks, good buddy. HumboldtLycanthrope (talk) 17:30, May 15, 2015 (UTC)

Asking for help

Hello, Big Brother
The all seeing eye and mind police are everywhere. lol. Thanks bud, but I'm on the fence and haven't decided yet. I noticed many authors, Mike MacGee among them, don't include readings on their pastas. And I had one writer tell me that having his reading included made him feel that people weren't reading his story, but just listening. The thing is, man, --did you listen to it?-- it is so good. I feel I should put it up. It's fucking awesome. I just got to think about it for a minute. HumboldtLycanthrope (talk) 03:22, May 19, 2015 (UTC)
Escuse me Mr.Jay ten, I was wondering if I could have my story, knock knock murder, brought back from deletion. I thought it was a good story, and a moderator edited it. It only had a little spacing issue accordung to him. Also, it is my dream to write a pasta, and I would love it very much. I dont see anything wrong with it, in all seriosness. Also, I was hoping maybe instead of insta deletion, we can actually work with eachother. There will be alot more quality stories, your fan base will rise and never fall, and everyone will be happy. But please sir, can you undelete it. I know there is writers workshop, but I dont have time for that. suncerely,Christopher Michael Richardson (talk) 19:55, May 20, 2015 (UTC) Christopher Michael Richardson
Yes, another contest proposal, but this time by me!
I got the idea in my head that I want to do one too. Now, I realize that we are a little contest heavy right now, so I was thinking of proposing the idea to you and the other admins (who I'll be sending this message to as well, just to crowd source the idea) now, and launch the contest itself at the start of June.
The idea that I have is a demon/devil themed contest. I would keep it pretty open ended, not assigning anyone specific goals or terms to write within. The only rule would be that the theme of the story would have to be demon centric, the plot and the rest is up to the writer. Other rules, like length of story and such will be added in pending approval.
Basically I would open up the first 20 days of June for submissions, and I will read and grade as they come in. The 20th-25th would be the judging, with the winner being announced at the end of June.
Now, here is where I would need admin support, beyond just approving the contest. I want to offer prizes, but I don't have a bunch of game codes to give out like Guy did in his contest last year. Basically, the prize ideas I came up with look like this,
The winning author gets a choice of either being the automatic spotlighted pasta for the month of July, or an automatic nomination for Pasta of the Month. It would be their choice as to which prize to accept.
The contest would be essentially open to anyone, regardless of user rights, accept for me, since I would be the primary judge. I am still thinking of whether or not I want to offer assistant judging positions to anyone else.
Either way, this is still very much in the planning phase, and much of it is going to rely on admin support and approval, especially for prize portion. I am mostly looking for feedback and suggestions at this point, as maybe you have a better idea of potential prizes, if you're not keen on the ideas that I came up with.
If the idea gets blessed off on, I will write a Staff Blog with the contest rules and guidelines so that people who want to get an early jump on this can.
Let me know your thoughts on this. As I said before, it would kick off in June, so that gives us the rest of this month to close out current contests, plus, if you do approve, you can factor that against any other potential contest proposals that may pop up.
Thanks for you time and consideration,
Thank you for the support on my contest. Everything sounds really good, I was going to stress the NSFW rule when I officially post the contest. To make sure the times vibe, I'll just wait about two weeks after Emp's contest wraps to start mine, to make sure everyone has a chance to recharge their creative batteries and such.
Basically, if you or Emp just want to green light me next month when you think it's the best time to start mine, just shoot me a message on my talk page letting me know it's go time, and I'll post a staff blog announcing the contest.
Again, thanks so much for supporting the idea.
Hi, I only had one question, how can I get my story so I can edit it or even just copy and paste it to something else?

Weird blog issue
Hey, buddy. For some reason I can't get a blog to post. Everytime I hit publish the edit screen just pops back up with the "subject blog post" icon. When I hit publish again another icon appears. This keeps happening over and over. What's up with that? Thanks, bro. HumboldtLycanthrope (talk) 17:04, May 29, 2015 (UTC)
- Yeah. The power that gets to the crats' heads gets out of control sometimes. Buy them a drink and tell them their work sucks. Rinse and repeat until they are crying. Don't ask me how I know this. :D
- Grats again on you and Banning's promotions btw. Spotted you two from a mile away way back when and knew you'd both be shoe-ins for power spots here. Well-deserved.
