RE:Your message in Furbearingbrick's page

It's quite alright. I set my expectations through the floor so as to not be disappointed with the outcome. Thanks! The S (talk) 23:29, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

Writer's Showcase & Writer's Workshop

I made a couple template pages on my sandbox wiki. I'm sending this message to all the active admins to see how it is received. It is a slight alteration to the {{nav-bottom}} template, which I have named {{Nav-display}} with the [[Special:RandomInCategory]] feature. Check it out here. The link is at the bottom of the message. Click either "Writer's Workshop" or "Writer's Showcase", which will take you to one of three test pages I've set up for each side of the template.

This template could be added to the front page if that's what the plan is, or the recent activities page if that is the plan, or both, even.

If implemented, it would also include the user adding either one of the categories to the post they wish to be included in this feature. Stories could be filtered out of either category after a week or two, keeping the categories small, which would raise the chance of each post getting hits. Whatever length of time would work best for each post to stay in the either category, I could take this on myself (or jointly with other users), removing the categories from the posts that have already been featured for a while.

Just to be clear, the categories "Writer's Showcase" and "Writer's Workshop" would need to added (or if other names for the categories are more fitting, I could easily change the template to reflect that). And, lastly, the categories would only be added directly to the posts on the Writer's Showcase or Writer's Workshop, and not the pages themselves (this will keep the feature limited to original stories, and promote activity on these boards.)

Check it out, let me know what you think. Any suggestions/additions to the feature would be appreciated.

Update on this, by the way, since the original version wasn't actually working, I've remade this with Javascript (it's still at the link above). The use of Javascript means that no new categories would need to be created. « UnderScorre » 14:14, July 4, 2015 (UTC)

Template Madness

Noticing you've marked a couple of stories for review and I thought I might give out a template that's a little more simple than coding one. it is: {{M4R|Reason}} and you simply need to put it at the top of the page and it adds the M4R category automatically. It's like a variation of the delete template. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 18:15, July 9, 2015 (UTC)

Broken redirect

Would you delete this? http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Peer_into_The_Unknown

Inside there is thunder in your heart 01:14, July 10, 2015 (UTC)

The page is not that old, so leaving redirects behind is not important. And the redirect points to a deleted page since I moved it, and it probably should be deleted. According to CMoS, "into" should be lowercase in titling because it is a preposition. According to AP style, anything under four letters is not capitalized, and according to another style (I think it's used by some publishers) anything under five letters is not capitalized. I've been using CMoS, as I've seen other prominent users capitalize "Is" in titles such as LOLSKELETONS and ClericOfMadness. As "is" is a verb, it would be capitalized under CMoS, and no other style. There's pages capitalized under other styles though, so revert my page move if you wish.

Posted OC but I don't know what to do??

Hey there, I posted a story a while back, entitled Cloak. I didn't really (and still don't) know how to use the site and I kind of forgot about it, but I just looked into my talk page and saw something you posted there like forever ago that said I should have tagged it OC and moved it to the submissions page. I had no idea that I was supposed to do that and now I am worried that it is too late. Please help.

Deletion Appeal

I'm afraid we posted at the same time again and this time have differing opinions. I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with some aspects of your appeal as the broken English in conjunction with an outside perspective (third person) really seemed forced, the lack of explanation as to which facet of Primal is talking and how to identify them, the capitalization and wording/redundancy issues also were a deal-breaker for me. As it stands, I think one of us should remove their response and I really feel like the story isn't up to quality standards and needs extensive revision. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 03:40, July 14, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, also just a side note, but we've been asking users to contact an admin or take it to the writer's workshop before submitting a revised story (even if re-written from the ground up) as some users have spammed the appeal with their stories after making minor changes. It's not a big issue, but it saves authors the trouble of submitting another story that gets deleted and it saves admins the hassle of being attacked over it. EmpyrealInvective (talk) 13:15, July 14, 2015 (UTC)

Category That Didn't Exist

Sorry about adding a category that apparently didn't exist. When I was marking down categories, the ones that I had both showed up as listed categories. Then again, maybe I was just being an idiot xD

Sorry about that.

"Derpy Hooves Dark Day"

Hey Reading, just to let you know that the story you deleted earlier (Derpy Hooves dark day) was actually a reupload of a story I deleted yesterday morning, for being blacklisted. I've not done anything to change the messages on the uploader's talk page, since I don't want to get in your way, but you might want to change your messages about the deletion to Template:Reup :)

Hoping you're well,

Hey!

Hi there! My name is Hailey Sawyer and I'm currently writing a creepypasta. If you're up for reading and reviewing it, I'll send you a pastebin link to the latest version of it. I'll give you a bit of info on the pasta. It has been said that the "Lost Episode" genre is highly cliched and it seems like there's very little you can do with it now. However, with this pasta, I plan to breath new life into the genre by either avoiding or subverting cliches. Instead of making the episode that the protagonist watches bloody or gory or anything like that, it will instead be more of a psychological horror approach like the rest of the pasta.

Where's The Review? 

Did you hear that Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is out now? Because I did and I played it. It was so scary that I died. That's right I'm a ghost. (Makes ghost noises) But in all seriousness though, you said that review of my story would be up yesterday but I never received it. I'm not angry though, just a bit confused as to what happened to that.

Reply to "Review" message

I'm sorry to hear about your misfortunes. Here, you deserve this: (hug). As for the review, I'm glad I'm off to a good start and reguarding the cresent horns part, one of the ideas for this pasta was that the more the character watched the episode, the more the shadow figure would turn into a samurai. For you see, one of the twists of the story was that the episode that the character was watching turns out to be all in her head and basically had a mental illness. I'll try to flesh out the idea more and see if I still want to go through with it but it's a possibility. I went over all the descriptions with Koromo and she said that they weren't too long or overblown but I guess me and Koro both missed one. Whoops! I'll take a look at the TV description and try to figure out if I want to shorten it or make one of the character traits that the protagonist has (i.e She has a thing for detail). I enjoyed your review and all that it had to say. I hope this pasta can help the Lost Episode genre regain some hope when finished.

You're welcome. Whenever I get sad, angry, or scared, one of the things I do is look at cute animals, especially rabbits. As we all know, you can't go wrong with rabbits, right? I'm writing up a chapter outline for chapter 7 and I'm stuck on what should happen when Kristy gets up to her room. Any suggestions? If so, I'll be here waiting. By the way, if you haven't seen the chapter outline, I'll send it to you as soon as I can via pastebin.

Reply to "This ain't no race!" message

I guess you're right. I gotta find my own ideas starting... now! *Sits there for several hours while nothing gets typed* D'oh! Looks like I gotta get some inspriation by wating other R.L Stine episodes where the family moves to a new place, like Spaceman for example. Have you seen that episode? It's one of two Haunting Hour episodes with an alternate ending. The other one being Scarecrow.

Reply to "I didn't know" message

Yeah it came out in 2010 and ended in 2014. The series is (loosly) based on some of R.L Stine's short stories from what I understand. The following episodes that involve moving to a new place that I can recall are: Walls, The Hole, My Imaginary Friend, etc.

Hello, Nick.

I was wondering if you are alerted when something you've written has been edited. I was browsing on the page that lists deleted pastas, and I read many of your comments. The critique of "Poisoned Lily" seems to be heavily edited, however; there were many errors that you, yourself, had pointed out to others. I'm wondering if someone with a bit of a grudge edited it, and if that's the case I thought you should know.

Mistake

It was a mistake for me to try joining this wiki, I have a very fragile psyche that I managed to shatter with my own actions. If possible can my account be deleted and all evidence of my existence erased, I'm too broken for this. This whole site, or at least my being a member of it is acting as one big trigger, for some very very dark things I thought I'd moved on from. Apparently not, can my existence just vanish, I think I need to forget any of this happened.

Deleted Story

If you have already seen this kind of premise elsewhere and don't want to have 2 stories with some common elements, what's the point of trying to improve it (at least for this site)?

That's an argument I've already heard: "sorry, there is already a story with a scarecrow, next"

You will have to delete a lot of stories if you follow this logic

Hi


Message to admins

Hi, I wrote this "story" (you can find it here: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:514480 ), Empyrallnvective thought it was just a troll pasta but it was in fact a way to criticize the site's policy. I'll copy what I wrote on his talk page (it's destined to him at first, but the critize and suggestions should be read by every admin)

It's a shame you took my "story" like a troll pasta, it was a way to criticize this site's policy.

And don't think I'm only complaining about my deleted stories, in fact, I don't care: I'll post them elsewhere, other people will read them, it is the same for me.

I have read some stories that were deleted and I must say that some were creepeier than most of the admins' stories I have read.

You may have good skills in English, but you have no peticuliar tallent in writing, as everyone here. And you know why? Because talented writers make a living out of it. So stop geing condescendant by denying someone's envy to tell a story (s)he imagined just because you found an insignificant mistake/bad choice of word/...

I spoke with other members and with people on reddit (who were also members), many of them think that I have a point.

But I'm not here just to criticize, I'd like to give suggestions to make this site better.

This system (publishing, deletion, deletion appeal) doesn't work (you can see by yourself all the denied appeals on the page) and it means loads of good stories that won't be published.

What can you do instead? Well, first of all, the workshop should be easier to spot and helping members should be rewarded (it means less work for the admins). You can also give tools to auto correct the grammar. Then, a story won't be published immediately, it would go to a "pending zone" where admins, moderators,... will personally help the writer to correct everything. This will work way better than deleting a story, asking for a revised copy and denying the deletion appeal because the writer didn't spot this peticuliar virgule misplacement.

Now, this "I've already seen this premise somewhere": I have read excellent Stephen King's novels that reminded me some other autors. And here too, I have read stories that had something in common with another one. It is ineviatble and you will miss a lot of good stories if you systematically delete stories that have a common point with another one. For example, one of my stories about a scarecrow was deleted because there already was another story with a scarecrow. The stories were completely different, except that they both had a scarecrow involved.

So now, you should have a talk with the other admins, because you have 2 options:

- You change nothing and keep believing that you all are masters of horror on their throne, deleting peasants' stories

- You apply my advice, make changes in your policy and make this site great

Hello, thank you very much for the welcome. Unfortunately, am still trying to walk my way through navigation. (Using an android phone) at the moment and am having a little bit of a hard time. I'd like to ask if there is a way for me to view the site as if its on android view?

Hello, WhyAmIReadingThis, thank you for your message as a welcoming way to a new Creepypasta member. I, Albertus Meppler hope to make good stories through the time I spent on Creepypasta and hope that you'll help me whenever I have a question on whether or not I should categorize my articles. :)

(Albertus Meppler5353 (talk) 02:16, December 21, 2015 (UTC))

I really appreciate your help on categorization stories thank you. :) (Albertus Meppler5353 (talk) 04:13, December 21, 2015 (UTC))

"Doesn't meet quality standards" Is to vague. I need an in depth report in order to work on improving my work so that it does meet quality standards. If you are to delete it, that's fine. I am aware you have every right to do so. But, I would of liked a heads up saying "You need to improve this" and if it is deleted an in depth report on why. I want a whole god damn critique on why it was deleted so that I can not only improve my content, but yours. Sincerely, SpaceAgeQuice. —Preceding unsigned comment added by SpaceAgeQuice (talkcontribs).

Hey, my story got marked for review. It says that there are multiple punctuation, capitalisation and story issues and that it needs a second opinion. I'm not sure as to what the problems might be so I'm thinking that maybe you can help me out. Here's the link to the story: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Illusion


It would be really grateful if you could help out. Thanks
