If you're here because I deleted your story, please read this blog first. If you want to attempt getting your story back on the site, put it in the Writer's Workshop, make significant changes based on the feedback, and then make a Deletion Appeal.

I also highly recommend reading stories in the Suggested Reading category to get a feel of what we're looking for. Also, to improve your writing skills you can give the Writing Advice blogs a read. They are written by members of our community and they are of great help.

Hello I'm having a little trouble coming up with ideas for a Creepypasta, but when I do, I always have trouble writing the story. Do you have any tips on how to prevent this? --Urncle (talk) 22:16, March 22, 2018 (UTC)Urncle

Stupid Question

'sup Dupin. Seeing as my talk page is full of mostly old messages and other such material, I was curious as to how I would actually go about creating a talkpage archive. I can't seem to find a guide or anything of the sort from the admittedly small amount of searching I have done. Mind giving me a crash course/point form list of how to create one so I can make more or less remove the clutter from my talk page. I had almost deleted it a few moments ago before even remembering archives were a thing and how it was against the rules to blank your talk page. Thanks in advance man.

Beat Me To It

Thanks for the instructions! I will make sure to refer back to it the next time I want to archive my talk page because well, as the title implies Empy beat me to it so I had no need to do it myself.

Hey, Kid. Hold tf up...

Yo, Chief Admin here. I demand that you get them Lost Episode catergories reuploaded now!!

~Chief Admin (your boss, dumb dumb)

Hello, sorry to bother you. Been a long time since I've been here, so I apologize if I tread incorrectly. I recently posted my newest story (or rather, several short stories that make up one story, with the intention of making a full-length final part to accompany it. Should I save posting it here for when the final 'extra-length' portion of it is done, or is it fine up in its current state, and I can post the 'follow-up' to it later?

Apologies again for bothering you, I have it posted on my blog as well for those that want to read it there, but more people tend to read it here. I'd be happy to save it until it's 'technically' complete if preferred, though, I just thought the completed portions were substantial enough on their own for it to constitute splitting it into two major pages instead of one extra-long one.

I'll still run it through the workshop to make improvements, but seeing as it's intended to be setup and the less important Muses, I think it works as a standalone. Henry's tale was meant to be a straight story told in 'chapters,' but my plans for the trip up the mountain range, the Final Muse and the epilogue kind of swelled up into something I'd rather dedicate another small 'collection' of weird stuff like this to. Thanks for clariying things, and I hope to have more stuff soon. At least sooner than last time.

Question about Whether "Holders" Category Is Standalone

These pages say that you can add any category to parts of the Holders series other than Ritual, Items/Objects, and Places. However, it has been relayed to me that the Holders category is standalone like the Historical Archive/PD category. Can you please tell me where it says this? I'm legitimately confused.

The Lullaby Man

Hi,

This morning I posted my short story, "The Lullaby Man." I logged on tonight to find it removed because it "Did not meet quality standards." I find this very vague. Could you please explain to me exactly why my story was deleted? I'd appreciate it.

Thank you,

~Josh

I gotta ask, the one short story I had where the guy killed himself and became a god was the one I still liked. And every other person who i've let read it has liked it too. It had good reveiws on here, so why did you remove it?

Here's a link to it.

Tide16 (talk)

Chat logs

He is doing more than just removing his name from the pages. He is actively going through, removing the pre-tags, and substantially changing the underlying formatting of the pages. In addition to this he is actively swapping words out that aren't his name.

  1. changes SJW to SocJus
  2. changes SJW to SocJus
  3. changes SJW to SocJus
  4. mangles formatting
  5. mangles formatting
  6. mangles formatting
  7. mangles formatting
  8. mangles formatting
  9. mangles formatting

At this point I would be asking a few questions, namely:

  1. Should someone be editing chatlogs that are 4-years old?
  2. Should someone change the formatting of 4-year old logs?
  3. Should someone retroactively make the logs PC?
  4. Should there still be chatlogs from 4-years ago on the wiki?

The answer to all of these questions, in my opinion is no. There is no reason to edit them as doing so only draws attention to the content of the page. Now I know their real name is Blaire. In addition to this, no one should be arbitrarily be changing what was said in the logs. If they are a record of what was actually said at the time then going back and correcting PC language is just historical revisionism.

And lastly, why are these even still here? Is there any actual purpose for retaining logs from a chat that hasn't existed in 4-years in the first place? Probably not.

Llanunall talk    11:32, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

Fandom recently blacklisted that acronym, such that it sometimes will not actually let you edit a page with it on it. I found that out when the wikia editor would no longer let me edit my user page because I had a link to one of my trollpastas with "SJW" in it.

That said, I'm inclined to agree that there really doesn't seem much point in even having these old logs up to begin with. Many of the informational pages from the "old wiki" are archived, such as chat moderator applications, and I think we should do the same with chat logs at this point if not just delete them entirely. I understand this wiki may have made a point in the past about "what you say in chat is public record for all to see", but as Llanunall said, it's been four years and no one is reading these.

Also, in Discord DM convos, this person has admitted that they have been finding the editor really buggy with these logs. They accidentally added the categories "troll pasta" and "suggested reading" to one log and asked me to undo a format mangle they made.

Your friendly neighborhood night owl. (talk) 14:13, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

That would explain why he changed it to SocJus, not that this is a good reason to alter the logs. If it were up to me I would have just not edited the page or done something to break up the word like we have done here.
That said, there wasn't really a good reason to actually edit the pages as I said above. Doing so mangled them, jeopardized their integrity, and attracted attention to a detail he sought to omit. In the end it seems like the entire project back fired quite thoroughly and now we all know his name and have a bunch of mangled log pages.
Deletion seems like the only reasonable path forward. They aren't useful, they apparently contain details people don't want posted everywhere, and they reflect a rather toxic environment according to people. These reasons coupled with the fact the chat hasn't been a thing for 4-years and you essentially have a complete case for deletion.

Story Deletion Request

Would you mind deleting my story The Hands I Never Felt from the wiki? I feel it's too personal for me to want to have publicly available online now. I've already saved a copy to my Google Docs in case I want to share it with anyone in the future.

Diff

Hey Dupin, hope you're doing well, how's life? :) Just thought I'd point out this diff. Seems to change quite a few of the author's wording choices unnecessarily (although there are a couple of spelling corrections in there). Wasn't sure whether or not it warranted reversal, so I thought I'd just point it out to be sure.

Writer's Showcase

Heya, I saw this thread and thought I could lend a hand. IK Maria was originally going to put together a script that would solve the issue, but that never seemed to materialise, so I've thrown something together myself. It's nowhere near finished yet, I just want to know whether this is something you'd be interested in before I go any further with it. To test it out, head to Common.js, press Enter test mode on the right, then navigate to the front page.

Obviously it's very incomplete at this time, but it's successfully fetching threads from the showcase & displaying them, it really just needs a bit of styling to look nicer. Let me know what you think.

Underscorre talk - contrib - log 21:35, August 11, 2018 (UTC)

It was being slightly dodgy for me too, maybe try adding the import to your personal JS? You'd just add:
importScriptPage('MediaWiki:Showcase.js');
Could also be a caching issue?
Underscorre talk - contrib - log 21:50, August 11, 2018 (UTC)
Hmm, I'll submit the pages for review then, so test mode won't be necessary. Sorry about this!
Underscorre talk - contrib - log 08:16, August 12, 2018 (UTC)

Socks?

Hey Dupin, sorry for the triple message (do I get a reward for the combo?).

You might want to take a look into these users - Fexd1, Mr.feardx12, Unamed666 and Danhorrorx66. They all seem quite intent on defending Danhorror's pasta.

Mr.feardx12 removed the M4R, saying in the comments "doesn't need to get delete". Fexd1 later also removed the M4R, saying something similar in the edit summary.

Unamed666 seems to have only made edits to Danhorror's page, and Fexd1 is also very focused on it, which I wouldn't expect from people with seemingly no connection to it.

Fexd1 thanked himself for a compliment to the pasta (possibly forgetting to switch accounts?) then hastily corrected this to give his third(!) rating for the pasta. All three accounts gave similar ratings, and Fexd1, Mr.feardx12, and Danhorrorx66 all have pretty similar naming schemes.

Let me know if this makes sense to you, or if I seem like I'm diving into a conspiracy theory rabbit hole.

All the best!

Underscorre talk - contrib - log 23:24, August 12, 2018 (UTC)

Pardon my intrusion, but I came across this conversation, and it made me think of something I noticed recently. I happened to see that Mr.feardx12 made a comment thanking someone for complimenting a story that they didn't write, making it seem like they were taking credit for it (Llanunall had a good response, asking, "You didn't write the story why are you saying thanks?"). It could mean something, it could mean nothing. It just doesn't look good when someone seemingly takes credit for someone else's story.
Also, I don't know whether to laugh or shake my head at that Fexd1 incident. Did he not know that that edit would show up on his Contributions list? Raidra (talk) 02:30, August 13, 2018 (UTC)
You're certainly welcome. For now that's just something to file away in the "Things That Make You Go, 'Hmmm...'" category. Cheers to you too! Raidra (talk) 19:03, August 13, 2018 (UTC)

Important - Some of your pastas may be deleted

Hello, I am a bot operated by Underscorre. If you believe you have received this message in error, please contact Underscorre via his talk page.

Recently, it was brought to the attention of the Creepypasta Wiki staff that pastas posted under licenses other than CC BY-SA are not allowed to be hosted on Wikia. Please see this announcement for more information. I have automatically identified that a number of your pastas may have been released under a non-compliant license (e.g: CC BY-ND, CC BY-NC, etc). Unfortunately, we cannot allow any pastas to remain on the site which are not licensed under CC BY-SA/public domain, and your pastas will be deleted some time in the future if they remain under a non-compliant license.

We would like to sincerely apologise for this situation. For many years, the staff here have operated under the assumption that alternative licenses were acceptable, and we intended to protect the rights of authors by allowing flexibility in how they licensed their stories. These deletions have not come about through any error at all on your part, we simply got it wrong.

As mentioned above, deletions will occur some time in the future (possibly in September). Right now, you have two options. If you wish for your pasta(s) to remain on Creepypasta Wiki, you will need to change the license on all of your pages to CC BY-SA. I have included a guide on how to do this below. If you wish for your pasta(s) to remain under their current licenses and be deleted, you do not need to do anything. I will automatically delete any of your pages which remain incompatibly licensed some time in the future.

Once your pasta has been deleted, it can be restored if you wish to change the license to CC BY-SA. Contact an administrator via their talk page, and ask for your pasta to be restored, being sure to note that the pasta was deleted because of licensing issues.

Changing the license on your pasta

Your pasta was identified as being incompatible due to the use of the {{By}} or {{By-user}} template, with the license parameter set to something other than cc-by-sa. For example, it could look something like the following:

{{by|Underscorre|user=yes|license=cc-by-nd}}
{{by-user|Underscorre|license=cc-by-nc}}

To change the license to CC BY-SA, alter the license parameter to show the correct license. Note that, if using the {{By-user}} template, the license parameter is actually filled in automatically, and you can remove it altogether to have the same effect of changing to BY-SA. The examples above would become the following:

{{by|Underscorre|user=yes|license=cc-by-sa}}
{{by-user|Underscorre}}

If you change the license in this fashion, your pastas will not be deleted. Please be aware of the implications of this license change - if you are switching from BY-NC/BY-ND, you will be allowing commercial use/derivatives of your pasta. Ensure this is what you want before changing license.

Contact an administrator if you need any assistance with changing your pasta's license.

Incompatible Pastas

I have included a list of your pastas which have incompatible licenses below. Once again, we'd like to apologise for this situation. If you need any assistance/information, please contact an administrator, or ask a question in the announcement thread. Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you.

PotM Response

That's awesome, man! I wrote that thing like 2 years ago. Never thought it'd be up for PotM. And I wanted all my stories to stay here, so thanks for changing the licenses over. I thought it'd do it automatically, but it seems that was not the case. Thanks again :D

This user was warned by Empy last year about making substantial edits to two stories. Yesterday he did it again to one of the same stories. Unless he is the original author and can prove authorship (highly unlikely), I believe this now counts as vandalism.

Hello, MrDupin. I would like to ask for the story " The Darkness of shadow" that had been deleted recently. It's my students' story, and I would like to give him  some advice about it, but he didn't have back up file. May I ask you to for the story please. 

Thank you so much

Story

I think you miss the point of it. It's not supposed to be a long drawn out story with large character development. It's a short absurdist story with a little bti of existionalist horror. Because if I were I would be terririefed in that situation and you know you would too. You say it doesn't meet quality standards but it was up here for a while, and got a 10/10 review from someone on here, and another admin checked it before allowing it posted

Possible troll has been vandalizing pages

Hello, and sorry to bother you. As the heading suggests, a user has been recently vandalizing pages. He has vandalized the stories The Zebra and Impatiently Waiting for the End of the World. On top of that he made a blog post accusing this wiki of being homophobic (because his vandalisms have been reverted) which I fear might be taken seriously by FANDOM and this site might get into some kind of trouble because of it.

Thank you for your time.

UPDATE: The trustworthy LOLSKELETONS has pointed The Zebra vandal out. And he (Skelly) too thinks that the user is a troll.

Ned Wolfkin. (talk) 03:27, September 27, 2018 (UTC)

You're Welcome and thank you

Hello.

First off, I'd like to say you are welcome (for my reporting the vandal), and I will let you or another admin know if it happens again.

As you might already know the night I reported that vandal this site was struck by a totally different vandal who was replacing entire atricles with badly drawn pornography, blanking pages, and vandalizing talk pages (I initially reported this to Helel). He even created sockpuppet accounts which I reported to ChristianWallis.

The night after (which was thursday night around 11:00 PM) the vandal struck again, but this time ol' Empy and I reverted his changes as soon as he made them. He made a blog post trying to talk to other users and Dr.BobSmith helped talk him down from his vandalism. The vandal promised to stop (and I see he has made good on his promise so far) and suggested that this site find a way of blocking users who use the Onion Router/TOR.

And finally, thank you for wishing me "a good one", I wish you the same.
