Welcome

Hi, welcome to Buffyverse Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Sanctuary page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Din's Fire 997 (Talk) 04:36, November 30, 2010

Wasn't the Galaxy Quest book simply a novelization of the movie?

Bureaucrats/Admins

I noticed that this wiki have no active bureaucrats and admins. Are you the only one? Because I would be honoured if you could make me one. I just need to know the requirements. (TheWikiWitch (talk) 10:44, August 31, 2013 (UTC))

Great job!

I just wanted to point out that you've done a great job here. I haven't been around in a few months and was afraid what I would find but its been a pleasant surprise. As the only Bureaucrat I'm elevating you to Administrator or Sysop. http://buffy.wikia.com/wiki/Special:ListGroupRights. There you can see your new rights. Keep up the good work!.--Gonzalo84 00:15, January 22, 2011 (UTC)

Page Name edits

I'm confused. Can you explain the purpose of the {{PAGENAME}} edits? DinoSlider 02:19, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

  • I've seen it as standard on a few other wikia wikis, as it helps preserve the page text if a page gets moved or something like that. And while the episode pages are obviously unlikely to need that insurance, they're the easiest place to start in making something standard across the wiki.

I figured it'd be a useful change to make, but if you think it's needless obfuscation, I'm not especially committed to the idea; we could always change it back. --OzzMan 02:26, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

    • I was just curious to know the motivation. I would advise against it only because in many cases you do not want the text to change if the page moves. This is especially true in the case of episodes since the name of the episode does not always match the title of the article: Angel (episode), Witch (episode), and Darla (episode). With this change, it would make invalidate the text if one of the pages moved. The same would apply to character names and, to some extent, any articles that that require a disambiguation page.
      • Ah, I hadn't considered those. You raise a good point, I'll change 'em back. --OzzMan 02:58, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

Talk page edits

It's not good to edit comments, but to fix a link so that people can figure out where they are supposed to be going, that's not a bad thing by any stretch at all.

The big problem here came when someone changed the "Giles" redirect to be a disambig page (which was good), but never bothered cleaning up the incoming links. -- sulfur 02:03, April 28, 2011 (UTC)

You're missing the point that it was a quote taken from the text on the page, and changing someone's quote changes their point. Moreover, it's an old topic on a talk page that isn't relevant anymore anyway, so it's unlikely that anyone is actually going to click on the link to check on the veracity of the comment.--OzzMan 02:08, April 28, 2011 (UTC)

I get that it was a quote, but if it were still on the page, it would be fixed without issue. Now, if someone does visit it, it goes to the wrong place. And there's a link pointing to a disambiguation page, when there shouldn't be. That's why I changed the link, making a point not to change any of the actual text that is visible to the user. -- sulfur 02:13, April 28, 2011 (UTC)

Errr.. Hey, you could help by edditing Kate's profile page. There are these words around the picture & Thank you. I also strongly recommened you read the changes I made to Anya's personality page, the few last paragraphs and the new image anyway.

Thanks for the welcome. I could use some help! I accidently uploaded this file: http://buffy.wikia.com/wiki/File:Atfreetolaugh.jpg thinking it would only post to my profile. Can you remove it, please?


Thank you for your help, and the complement. I will remember to use signatures from now on.

Question about adding links to the story.

Can somebody help me to understand the basics of adding a link to another Wiki page or an image ? I wanted to insert a reference to Buffy's nightmare about Nurses in Willow Wonderland P 2 , but could not figure out how to do this. also, how does one communicate with other editors ?

deerinheadlights

PS

And what about signing using four tildes ???

Excited to be a new member - never tried to do any edits before so if I totally screw up page - please let me know.  I am a long time devoted fan of the Buffyverse and Angelverse. 


Hello, and thanks for the welcome! I'd like to point out a slight oversight on Buffy Summers' page, where it shows her aliases, it says that Spike called her Goldilocks just once, but it was actually 2 times: "Goodbye Iowa" ("hate to break it to you, Goldilocks, but you have a tragic bleeding taste in men", and later on in "Gone". 

Thanks a lot and great job :) Scarlett22 (talk) 21:48, February 15, 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I'm new to this wiki and I'm a huge Buffy fan! Do you have any tips?

Tenses in Comic Chapter Articles

I wasn't quite sure who to broach this with, so I apologize in advance for leaving a message on your talk page.

I know that it's been discussed at length in the past, but I would like to bring up writing tenses in regards to the canon "Comics" area of the Wiki. As I understand it, this Wiki functions based on the literary past tense. The creators based the Wiki off of a similar one (Wookieepedia, I believe). Still, I simply can't accept the prospect that the comic chapter articles are written in past. A fellow user made me aware of this fact, and I think it's rather odd. My justification is as follows:

1) Firstly, comics are not in-verse characters, places or items. They are tangible things; they can be read, torn, dog-eared and have coffee spilled on them). Simply put, they exist in the physical world. I feel like a fool for bringing this up, but I think the introduction and summary sections of Comic-chapter related pages should be altered to accommodate the present tense. Here's an example: "Freefall, Part Three." As you can see, both the intro and summary are written in past, yet a comic book is still a book, and the sequence events in a book are stagnant; they unfold the same way each time you read them, therefore nothing that happens in them should be written about as if it has already happened.

2) Secondly, all episode summaries are written in the present tense. Following that logic, comic chapter summaries should be written in present as well.

3) Lastly, I would be willing to change every single canon comic chapter article into the present tense if you chose to allow it. If you think it's best left as is, then I'll accept that too. I don't altogether mind the current tense, but I do think it would be better altered. Still, it's entirely your decision.

Sorry again for leaving you with this long message. I really want to help improve this Wiki, and I think this one change could really to it justice in the long-run. I've seen other debates about this exact topic on other talk pages, but users never seem to come to a concrete conclusion. I have ideas in regards to the tenses of the "character" related pages, but all that can be saved for another day. Besides, I'm new and all, and I don't want to get in the way or anything.

Thanks for your message, I'm something of a novice at wiki-editing but I think I've included all the relevant links. Please let me know if any part of the edit was off-kilter or if I can help with anything else. Thanks again MagusDane (talk) 11:13, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

Just saw the "International Titles" headline in the Buff episodes behind the scenes part and noticed that some of the finnish titles were missing the translate so I thought sense Im finnish and I love Buffy, why not edit them there myself. I hope that's cool :)

Hi Ozzman And you are my best friend and I of course a big buffy fan Have a nice day --Buffyfan1998 (talk) 15:32, July 30, 2013 (UTC)buffyfan1998--Buffyfan1998 (talk) 15:32, July 30, 2013 (UTC) 

Request

There's this recent article titled the "Hellmouth Genius Effect" which asserts that the remarkable intelligence of some of Sunnydale's individuals (such as Warren and Ted's creator) are a direct result of the Hellmouth's energy. I made it a candidate for deletion since it's just speculation as far as I'm concerned, Since you're an admin, I'd like to know your opinion and if you agree with me then could you please delete it? OwnerMan (talk) 08:33, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, yeah, that's total speculation. The title alone is speculation, and it completely ignores the fact that superscience exists even in non-Hellmouthy places. Fred, for example, was a genius back in Texas all on her own. I'm gonna go ahead and delete it since it's, at best, a fan theory.--OzzMan (talk) 08:37, August 13, 2013 (UTC) 

Thanks for your input. OwnerMan (talk) 08:45, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

Request - delete account created in error

[text removed]

Don't worry, I'm clearing things now.  let me know via Special:Contact if you have any questions -- sannse @fandom (help forum | blog) 16:59, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the encouragement OzzMan.  I'm new to this site but figured I'd start small, making small edits for minor characters and using the yearbook as canon.  I don't know if you're into fan fiction but I have a story going on at fanfiction net.  It's called "Buffy epic."  It's a crossover with Angel but very much AU.  I use the same screen name as here.  I've already posted 27 chapters, there will be at least 500 more posted over the net year.  Two things I should warn you about it.  I rated it M for mature due to the sex and violence content.  Also it goes into issues of politics, philosophy, and religion.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you I understand.

Hi, thank you to welcome me there. I have only one question please. How can I make this blue board with infos about characters? Thank you.

New prof users

The new users Kennedyprof and pintoprof have polluted our wiki with ads about real-world 'spells'. I removed the page for deletion, however, I haven't touched the blog posts, since it's a bit more personal and subjective (as opposed to a wiki page, which must be governed by objectivity). I don't know if they will continue to post more ads, but I seriously hope you admins could watch them closely. Thanks. FTWinchester (talk) 20:31, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the heads up. I've taken care of those two accounts, and I'll check around for any other similar spambot users.--OzzMan (talk) 20:47, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for welcoming me to the wiki!  There is perhaps something you could help me with.  I'm quite new to these things and am just wondering about the general etiquette of the community.  I'm marathoning my way through the series and have been noticing quite a few continuity errors and pop-culture references that aren't mentioned in the pages for that episode. 

I'm wondering if it would be better to bring these things up in the talk pages to let the rest of the community decide if they belong on the page or if it would be more appropriate to just edit the page itself. 


Thanks,

Ethacetin (talk) 00:01, December 6, 2013 (UTC)ethacetin

Welcome to the wiki! I would suggest to you that the best method would be to simply add anything you know for certain is a continuity error, and anything you're unsure about could be brought up on the talk page for discussion.--OzzMan (talk) 00:32, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Gaffe

Sorry about the post on the evolved vampire talk page. Where should I post some questions like that? Is it better is a blog? FTWinchester (talk) 00:33, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, discussions like that are better kept to blog posts or the Watercooler section of the wiki's forums.--OzzMan (talk) 00:59, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

==I have been editing been editing realtionships of characters on their pages but it's a bit messy. Perhaps you would like to clean it up? Neptunestar84 (talk) 05:20, September 9, 2014 (UTC)

hey thanks for the welcome and everything and you're welcome. :) I was wondering, do you have a possbile answer to my question on the Ryan Anderson talk?

On the wiki's background

Hello there! I was just wondering what you think about the background image of the wiki. I personally think it's too bland and generic. It is not very suggestive to any of the titular characters. I think it would be nice if we update it. I've asked in the main page talk, but nobody was answering. OwnerMan expressed support with the idea. However, I wanted to know what others think as well. Plus, since the main page is locked, only an admin could really tweak it. I was wondering if you could share us your opinion. Thanks. FTWinchester (talk) 02:01, November 8, 2014 (UTC)

I suppose I've got no objection to a change, so long as it looks nice. Perhaps a shot of Sunnydale High's courtyard? It would be easily identified even as a background image, and wouldn't result in trying to cram a bunch of characters off to the side. I'm open to other ideas.--OzzMan (talk) 04:18, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
Alright. I guess we better make a blog to facilitate the discussion. Because so far, we are all going for different ideas. FTWinchester (talk) 03:45, November 28, 2014 (UTC)


Hello,

you can change the Battle model, something wrong, Please

Longbow and Compound Bow

Why were they deleted? We have pages on guns and crossbows anyway, and those two kinds of bows made actual appearances and don't really fit under crossbows since they are their own kind of bows. FTWinchester (talk) 03:24, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

And the Grenade Launcher was removed too? Buffy used that against the Judge and Adam also upgraded himself with one. I don't see why they don't warrant pages when we have several pages on real-life weapons that were also used against or imbibed with supernatural powers/creatures. FTWinchester (talk) 03:28, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

The wiki has a policy of not having articles for real world items, people, or places. If a Wikipedia entry would suffice for it, then it doesn't need an entry here. There are certain exceptions, such as Halloween (holiday) and Nicolas Cage, because the way these things appear in the Buffyverse are unique to the Buffyverse. Having an entry for special weapons like the Scythe or even Mr. Pointy is fine, but we don't need entries for mundane things that exist outside of the Buffyverse.--OzzMan (talk) 14:38, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
Noted. However, I was confused as to why Fire axe was kept. And where do we draw the line? Crossbows and stakes also have pages here. Please advise. Thanks. FTWinchester (talk) 15:09, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
I think a case could be made for the notability of stakes, Crosses, and Holy Water, given that their role in vampire slaying is different than the real world's mundane uses. I left fire axe in because I wasn't rooting around looking for things to delete, I just deleted a few things I came across. It was an oversight rather than an intentional exclusion.--OzzMan (talk) 15:24, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
so which ones should we delete? FTWinchester (talk) 15:38, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
Anything where the description of the item doesn't offer any information that wouldn't be included in a Wikipedia entry for the same item. Stuff that already exists in the real world doesn't need to be chronicled here. Any specific items, like Buffy Summers' knerf, are fine, because their info is Buffyverse exclusive.--OzzMan (talk) 15:47, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

Canon/IDW characters

Please stop removing information from articles like Beck and other IDW characters' pages on the grounds that the information is non-canon.

I can understand omitting non-canon information from characters' histories if the information is superfluous (for example, I would not argue for including content from the early comics or novels in main characters' articles such as Buffy Summers). However, Asylum and Shadow Puppets are crucial stories in Beck's arc; they establish her character, explain her origin and relationship with Spike, and later canonical stories like After the Fall clearly reference and build upon those stories. An argument could even be made that Asylum is retroactively canon, but that is not the point I'm making. In the context of this Wiki alone, it is negligent to omit such important information from a characters' history; if you wish to tag that information as dubious canon, so be it, but removing it completely damages the quality of the article.

Buffyverse canon is not a black and white topic, this wiki should not ignore content because some fans personally believe it doesn't "count". How the information is presented in the article is debatable but it should be present. Paul730 (talk) 23:50, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

I don't believe that non-canon info has any place in the body of a canon article, and have been editing that way for years now. I once made a suggestion that perhaps some sort of "the following is non-canon" and "the following is disputably non-canon" tag be made to facilitate the inclusion of it, but since no discussion ever followed, I just struck the non-canon info and moved on. All of Beck's info from these stories is still on the wiki, it's just chronicled on the pages for those stories, which are clearly labeled as non-canon at the top. Putting non-canon info on canon pages is confusing to our users and therefore unhelpful. We may not have a strict list of what is or isn't canon, but we have, at the very least, a loose guideline set up on the Canon page, so, at the bare minimum, we shouldn't contradict that.--OzzMan (talk) 00:46, December 3, 2014 (UTC)
It was me who wrote most of that canon article, and it describes the ambiguous canonicity of some stories, particular IDW comics and works by Brian Lynch. Asylum is a bizarre case, as it was originally a non-canon story, whose characters were later folded into canon; the events of Asylum clearly "happened" since Spike and George/Beck reference them in later stories. Therefore, ignoring those obviously relevant stories entirely because you personally don't count them as canon is remiss of this wiki.
I believe the information should be available in Beck's character bio. This whole concept of "canon articles" and "non-canon articles" is flawed because some characters blur the lines of canon. Not only that, but sometimes canon or dubiously canon stories flesh out a characters' history significantly (see Go Ask Malice for Faith, Sins of the Father for Pike, the original Dark Horse comics for Adam and The Master); in that case, I believe including that information is worthwhile, even if the canonicity is questionable. I'm not saying we cover every single Buffy novel in every characters' bio, but if that novel informs that characters' history significantly then its' worth including. It should be this wiki's job to provide the information without bias, and let the readers decide for themselves what to think of it; tagging sections with "this information may not be canon" might be necessary to provide clarity, but the information should still be there.
I would recommend looking at Wookiepedia and how they handle character bios; ALL the relevant information gets covered, with canon tags when necessary. I think this wiki should follow that example. Paul730 (talk) 20:56, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
That's not quite how Wookieepedia handles stuff anymore. As most of the Star Wars canon has been thrown out entirely, they now have tabbed pages, with confirmed canon only on the Canon tab, and everything (canon and non-canon combined) under the Legends tab. I'd be perfectly fine with that exact setup, but I can't condone putting non-canon info on a canon page without alerting the reader that the info has absolutely no bearing on the ongoing seasons. The only character I can see needing an exception to the rule is Yuki Makimura, who has no canon information whatsoever, other than the fact that she exists in canon. Characters like Beck and George certainly have a background with Spike that was never shown in canon, but so does Bro'os. In the "commentary" for the hardcover edition of Spike: After the Fall, Brian Lynch specifically points out that a reader reading only the canon stories could easily just infer that Spike's relationship with these characters was established "offscreen" in the same way.
To make it clear, my main concern for canon is that our pages make sense to the reader, and that they know which things definitely happened and inform the events in the Buffyverse going forward.--OzzMan (talk) 10:52, December 14, 2014 (UTC)

Query

I need your opinion on this, please. I've deleted it but the user brought it back and I don't want to seem like a jerk, but I honestly think the page is unnecessary. Thanks. FTWinchester (talk) 14:51, December 6, 2014 (UTC)

It's definitely unnecessary. "Actors that also appeared in How I Met Your Mother" or something along those lines might make an acceptable category or list page, but the show itself doesn't require a page.--OzzMan (talk) 10:56, December 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hi OzzMan

Thanks for reaching out. I am a student at American University, and I am working on a research paper for a class. I am looking at posts and comments people have made in the past, and trying to get in touch with the users to see how their feelings towards those episodes and the show have changed over time. I'm also interested in fans' histories with the show. (If you'd like to see the list of episodes I'm focusing on, just let me know.)

Here is the questionnaire I've been using.

Images

How does this wiki go about adding new main images to pages? I was gonna try to find a new image for Drusilla on the Big Bad page but I didn't know if I have to nominate it or ask or just add it? Tysonjackson (talk) 00:35, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Let me know if you need any help with your Buffy wikia! Happy to give you any help you might need or want. :)

Excuse Me?

I'm afraid I believe you were unfair in your assessment of my post to the 'Chosen' page. Half of my content was to point out inaccuracies in the page's information (I'd pointed out a flaw in the Scoobies losing significant others pattern and in the comment that a deleted piece of dialogue would have made Buffy the only person who knew about Connor at the time) in contrary to one of your complaints, I was unaware that personal feedback was not permitted so for that I apologize, but could you not have just deleted those comments rather than my entire post?

And I absolutely don't understand your accusation of "racial slurs", I never made a single comment that had anything to do with race. I'd never, I'm absolutely not a racist. 

I really don't appreciate when my posts are deleted without the issue being discussed with me, I'm very open to editing my wording if my expressional curse words or tone are considered offensive and I believe there was useful substance to this particular post which could have been salvaged. In this case, I was away on a camping trip and thus has no internet access on the day you took your action but I'd have worked with you as soon as your message came to my attention. 

VampireBloodlust (talk) 03:45, June 30, 2015 (UTC)VampireBloodLust

I performed my duties as an Admin on this Wiki. I cleaned up an infraction, then alerted the offender to their infraction. My duties do not include educating you on how to use the wiki. Central has a wealth of resources for that purpose. If you broke the rules due to ignorance, I can understand that, but I was still required to rollback the page to a version that didn't have the unneeded content on it. If you wish to once again add the content that is allowable, then by all means do so. To address your second paragraph, you most certainly did use a racial slur, and ignorance of it is not understandable in this case. You have been warned about it, and similar infractions of that nature will lead to being banned without further discussion.--OzzMan (talk) 04:24, June 30, 2015 (UTC)

Can you created the page Attack on Buffy and Anabelle for me, please ? I do not have time

Re: 'Potential and new Slayers' category page

Hi there. I noticed you have deleted the category page Potential and new Slayers because there were two preexisting category pages that capture the same content. I don't have an issue with that. However, the category still exists and continue to list the pages categorized under it, which creates inconsistencies. What do you recommend? FTWinchester (talk) 13:32, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

fake article

This guy creates fake articles about himself all over wikia and even the Wikipedia. http://buffy.wikia.com/wiki/Richard_Madenfort?action=history shows where he created it here, under a user name similar to one of the many he used on Wikipedia before being blocked there. Notice the article he created there by the same name deleted https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Richard_Madenfort&action=edit&redlink=1 and it mentioning his username, same one he uses here to create the same nonsense article. I erased his nonsense he created on the Taylor Swift wikia awhile back after someone told me about him. Anyway, please delete that article and consider blocking him so he doesn't just recreate it.

The I in team episode page and Buffy summers relationships page

I'm sorry I didn't mean to cause trouble on the I in team episode page. All I did was fix some links. The links are now redirected again. If there is an issue with fixing links. Then I won't edit anymore. Also with Buffy summers relationships page. When I tried to fix some stuff Riley Finns section. It changes another color from yellow to blue in the show changes section. What I mean. The entire text shows yellow before changing anything. When I tried to fix some stuff it shows the entire text as blue. But the info is still the same. Can I please edit the page and please publish the edit? (Natalie j (talk) 22:06, September 20, 2017 (UTC))

Any assistance wouyld be great. Thanks.

Hello OzzMan. Im trying to correct the spelling of this page: Ferula Gemini so that it will correctly read as: Ferula Gemina. The problem I'm having is that there are two pages and the other one is mispelled as well. Was attempting to add the correct information to the other page but it wont let me rename it correctly.

Any assistance wouyld be great. Thanks.

Re:Gemini

Hey, I just redirected all alternative pages I've found, but maintened the main page with the name "Ferula Gemini", not "Gemina" as suggested. In my understanding, the source for the object's name is solely auditory, from the characters' speech. therefore the confusion. So I resorted on the following logic: both words are related to the Latin word for twin ("geminus" ), but "gemini" (plural) would make more sense than "gemina" (feminine) in reference to the tool, translating its name to "twins cane". Is there a trustful written source for this?

Re:Gemina

Going off of any online transcript Giles says "Gemina". Going off of closed captioning for the show (which I use as I'm hard of hearing) Giles says "Gemina". Going off of closed captioning for the show Riley say's "Gemina". Below are the screen caps I took today from the episode: The Replacement.



At this time I'm requesting that the title of the page in question be changed to it's rightful title:

                                             Ferula GEMINA.

GeminA1

Clearly the name is GEMINA.

GeminA2

Clearly the name is GEMINA.

Infobox Images

Can you please check out this new convo/question I started in the community central board? I need your fellow admin's take on it. Thanks. CLICK HERE AND LOOK AT BOTTOM INFOBOX DISCUSSION. QueenBuffy35px-Pink crown 20:04, December 10, 2017 (UTC)

Unjust blocking

Hi, OzzMan, I hope you can help me with this dispute. I'm sharing this messages with all Buffyverse administrators, since I don't know how many of you are still active, and would like to have this solved without taking it to the Fandom Community Central.

I'm an user of this wiki since 2015, administrator since 2017, and currently the second most prolific contributor with over 14 thousand edits. Yesterday, I was accused of deleting a new template from a bureaucrat, and my rights as an administrator were removed. The fact is: User:QueenBuffy had never created such template, but in reality an article (Season2EpisodeGuide), as she could have seen in my contributions list or her own. I was accused of doing based on a discussion at the Buffyverse Communnity Central from 2017, in which the theme was episode infobox images; while User:OwnerMan and I argued in favor of promotional pictures, QueenBuffy preferred vertical ones. She brought this discussion also as an argument that I disagreeing with her is disrespectful to her higher position and personal work, and my help with creating an actual template should have been in form of direct requests to her instead of contributions. Even though she now has deleted the template I made (Template:EpisodeGuideBuffySeason2), which is exactly what she accuses me of, and continues to maintain the incorrect article format.

Meanwhile, she had added another template she created, Template:Season1EpisodeGuide, to List of Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes, at the time the 4th most visited article in this wiki, and therefore of major impact to its users. She declares she feels threatened that I also edited this template, even though no {{Edit}} warning banner or similar had been added, and she now explicitly declares ownership. As you may see for yourself, my edits were 10 hours after hers, included individual summary justifying them, and, as any other contribution in a wiki, passive of being discussed, undone, or followed with more contributions from any other user. My edits were related to updating the layout in accord to all other tables on this wiki and replacing the text with official summaries. Bringing the image discussion back, you can also see in its history ([2]) that my edits included vertical images as well as screenshots, in accord to her own demand from 2017 and using her own uploads, which she claims I don't respect. She has since undone my contributions and locked the page from me.

During this discussion, she also locked the episode articles Some Assembly Required, Inca Mummy Girl, Halloween, Lie to Me, and The Dark Age. These are articles that she solely contributed changing the infobox pictures for low quality screenshots with spoilers, under the argument that the article's title and summary weren't enough for her to identify them. Despite that she went directly against the previous/ongoing discussion in the Community Central, I had respected her demand and didn't replace any of these pictures. But still she locked them to me. You may see that I had contributed to all these articles before, and had been done so with all episode articles, in the sections synopsis, continuity, appearances, behind the scenes, as well as with links and references. Now I'm unable to do so, because she accuses that I'll undo all her work, and she should be the one that does it to my contributions. After her edits, she also reopened the image discussion with a new argument, now without one person able to disagree with her.

In conclusion, not only she has falsely accused me of undoing her work, then punished for supposedly doing so, but she has been actively preventing me from contributing to the wiki. This means directly violating the Wiki guidelines, such as Confusion about ownership, Deleting content, and Assume good faith. Since she continues with the accusations even after my explanations and apologies, and intends to completely limit me because I'm the one that should understand how offended she feels with the wiki model of contribution, I request now from you at least having my rights back.

Just now she edited the Cordelia Chase article, solely replacing the main picture — a promotional picture from Angel season 2 (File:AS2 017 Cordelia.jpg) —, for a picture she just uploaded (instead from the character's gallery) from a shooting the actress did after the show had aired (File:Cordy_Main_New.jpg). Another user undid this, as the picture did not represent the character, and still she redid it, messaging him: "Don't undo my work. Thanks." (User talk:Pokemonfan201). It should be noted that Cordelia's is one of the most visited articles and that I've been largely contributing to its content, inclusive with the previous infobox picture, and she has also blocked from it. If she continues to impose and harass anyone for contributing within the wiki guidelines or disagreeing with her in open discussions, I intend to request the appropriate restrictions for her behavior.

Now that I restored my own reply she had deleted from my own talk page (which she refused to do so), you are free to read the complete discussion for yourself at User talk:Ellesy#My work, if you like.

Thank you for the attention, I hope to hear from you soon.

Once again, I'm not in the least trying to harass or cause trouble. It just seems like whatever edits I make you do not approve of them and not only do you disagree but you create your own template and make mine "wrong". Once again with the infobox images...I let u keep your promo shots you wanted, but if there isnt one that explains what the ep is about, only then do I revert to horizontal images. The only reason I had to temporarily block pages and remove your rollback rights, is everything I was doing continued to be undone. This wiki must always be a collaborative effort.
