So a while ago I posted a comment on a blog post about wanting to become admin...and...it was impulsive and I had little forethought when writing it. I enjoyed writing those two blog posts soon after, but that was pretty much it. I soon realized that this wiki didn't really "call" to me, if that is the correct terminology.
So, I did the rude thing of leaving without telling you, becoming another one of the users that you've been irritated by the last few months - sorry.
I may edit here or there, but that's about it. May you continue seeing activity as the recent spurt of activity has appeared. :)
Nothing is really wrong either here or with myself, however, thank you for the offer to help if needed. I felt a need to apologize however because I had rashly asked for something then left for a long time and that wasn't very polite.
sorry xD um basically I need help. I am a noob to practically everything, and I don't exactly understand how making a wiki work. My idea (or maybe a goal) is to create a community of Subnautica fans who love making stuff about the game. I would like it if u could spread the word cuz I don't have many friends on any wiki.
Alright. I've been advertising it a little bit, but I've only worked on so many wikis. If you need admins though, I'd recommend Marble-y Cake. She's been very helpful here. If you want, I can ask her if she's interested. She could also help in assisting to spread word to other wikis.
Hello Venz412, this wiki is about My Little Pony fanfiction. But not only that, it is a little mini-community for everyone who joins to get along and chat, and care about others. I am an admin on this wiki, any questions you would like to ask, I will gladly answer. I'm not good with technical errors, so if you are having any techincal troubles, Marble-y Cake is most likely the one to go to. However, if you are having any other troubles, such as trolling, or you need information, you may contact me, Comicwing, or Marble-y.
I could make it a possibility, but first I would to know you a bit better. We can't just make anyone admin. I have an idea for that. Perhaps you and I could work on a few projects together. But first, what are you good at doing on Fanon? Drawing art and Comics? Writing stories? Or perhaps just creating characters and character description? ~Terrarian Pony
Nevermind the question. I saw your profile. Good at drawing, right? Do you do comics? Fan art? Perhaps I can have you work on a few projects of mine, and we can see where that goes. How's that sound? ~Terrarian Pony
Alright then, it's decided. I want to put your drawing skills to the test. First, I want you to read a project I've created called "Pony's Creed", from the prologue, all the way up to the end of chapter 2. (See the link below)
Suddenly, the sky turned dark, and ponies began pointing up in fear. There was shadowy, pony-like figure in the sky, looking down on the crowd.
???:" KEY NOTE!!!"
It's voice was like that of mare's, but like a hundred voices in one. Key Note turned around to see the silhouetted, pony-like creature. It had bright, white eyes, and from it's back, dangled a slightly shredded cape. It's aura was switching from purple to red rapidly. It's hooves were covered by steel horseshoes.
???:" I'M HERE TO COLLECT YOUR SOUL!!!"
(Remember, read from the beginning in order to paint a clear picture of what is going on in this scene.)
Actually... that's pretty good. At first I thought you made Key Note all pink, but then I looked back at the story, and it seems the lighting causes his white fur to look like that color. I love it. I love the design, I love how you made the phantom, and the gloomy darkness in the sky. I love it all. My only problem is his tail-wrap, but I think I can overlook that. Is it okay if I use this for my story? I'll even make sure people know it's yours. I would also like to share this with another friend of mine and see what she thinks, if that is okay with you. ~Terrarian Pony
Well, I'm glad you came to me. I'll let you know when I think of something else you could do. For now, continue doing what you like, and I'll take interest in whatever pages you make. And sorry if I seemed hesitant about the whole admin thing before, but I only wish to see if you can earn the responsibility, and you are well on your way. Keep it up. ~Terrarian Pony
I understand perfectly. Again, I'm grateful that you're willing to give me a chance. I hope I'll further impress you to eventually become an admin and help for the cause of the wiki.
If you want me to do more work, I could possible make pixel bases/icons for ponies that would be MSPaint safe. As for the icons, I could make gold, silver, and copper horseshoe/alicorn medals for the position of admins.
And if I possibly earn admin priviledges, fix up the rules and make edits and just do cleaning around the wiki.
Seeing the articles, there's too many articles that talks about canon material, or articles solely on canon materials. I am wondering if you can go around, help me delete articles that only pertain to canon material, and if one article pertains to a fnaon-series, rename it to fanon.
Since this is a fanon site, there should be no canon characters here (but terminologies should be here such as Magic).
Those are disambiguation pages, which has the lists of different versions of the character in question. I do not make a canon, but I alter them for the reality they exist in. Look at Twilight Sparkle (Earth-606), she has a similar history to her canon counterpart, but it only contain fan-made history in Earth-606 after a convergence of two or more realities.
From head hurt to brain hurt in only later than a minute. (*sigh* Why can't things just be simple?) Look, deletion of articles is not my strongsuit unless I know it's absolutely worth deleting. I became admin so I can clear the wiki of inappropriate content, and to ban those who think it's funny to vandalize articles just because there wasn't any admins at the time. I'm not trying to be mean, or lazy. I'm just saying, I can't just go through and delete canon articles... there are too many that I have seen.
Despite low-user rate with only a handful, I want to talk to you on the policies contributed to the MLP lore. When I am done with one of them, we should talk if the policy I written is acceptable or not. To find a finish policy, I will tell you when I am done, to which be in my Sandbox. Is that alright with you?
Policy that the users need to follow. Such as, lets say the Naming Policy shall we?
In MLP, they never ever used human names (like James, or John) and being a fanon to MLP, we should enforce the user to use non-human names (like Midnight Turner or Might Shallow) in accordance to the MLP universe (however, this rule does not apply to humans). This policy is to keep clean of humans in the FIM universe (as I deleted my humans of my lore, as I find it dumb honestly and so starting over with the Nine Realms). So, no human names on ponies (but this rule does not apply to those ponies made before this policy, as it wont be fair).
I think we need this, has in canon lore, no humans has appeared in Equestria, because the writers didn't want it. These policies is to keep it like MLP, while making your own. But like I said, it does not apply to humans, only ponies.
Well... about that, sometimes I can't come up with a creative name, so sometimes I have to improvise, and use human names. Besides, it doesn't seem too fair to those who are creatively challenged. Also, I do have a story series that has humans, and ponies, both of which who use magic. However, I do agree that if it has anything to do with humans in Equestria, then it just shouldn't be there. (Unless there is a good logic behind a human being in Equestria. Portals should not be an optional logic. Completely alternate universes could be acceptable.) However, I am not too concerned with story content, as long as it is appropriate. I am more concerned with the random photos that people post. We should make it a rule against posting unnecessary photos.
Ahhh yes, the images. That is also one of great concern. As anyone can upload any photo, a troll could come along, and upload s 18+ picture of a girl, or something highly inappropriate. Have you gotten any run-ins of such unnecessary/R-rated photos?
With the names, I mainly refer to ponies in general. Ponies shouldn't have humans names, since their well.. Human. You wouldn't name your Australian kid a Japanese name, would you? No, cause that be weird. Po
What about names that are familiar to the MLP franchise? Trixie. Luna. Maud. Cadenza. Those can all be human names. Oh, and Diane, as in Pinkemena Diane Pie? Seriously, Pinkie Pie is mane six character, and even she has a human name as a middle name. And what about some background characters, eh? Octavia can also be a human name. I'll... tell you when I think of something else, but the point is, some human names are canon for MLP. Always do your research. That's what I do whenever I create a story. I have to do research on specific topics, in order to place certain factions, or perhaps use complicated words in the correct sentence. But I am getting off topic. Human names are sometimes canon MLP lore. Some pony names are even based off of human names.
However, the confusing is do ponies use a last name? There's Twilight Sparkle, but her brother is Shining Armor (last name not same), and there's Twilight Velvet and Night Light (yet not the same last names). But by human names, I mean like James or Tim kinda thing. Not Latin names or ancient names such as Octavia. I mean on the modern names really.
Well, if you think about it, I think shining armor "might" be adopted. He doesn't look very similar to either of his parents. At least Twilight slightly resembles her mother, but other than that... eh. Still though, I think the real question is... HOW THE HECK DOES MOM AND DAUGHTER HAVE THE SAME FIRST NAME BUT NOT LAST!? That is just WAY too CREEPY!!! But you're right, sometimes it is confusing. I mean, none of the Apple family have the same last name, but most of the pie family do. Pinkie Pie, Maud Pie, Marble Pie... I can't remember the rest. But with the Apple family, Applejack and Apple Bloom... wait no, Applejack is spelled in one word, Apple Bloom is spelled seperately, but it doesn't make any sense since nopony would only call her "Apple", so it really is confusing to spell it seperately... Wow. I just realized I am a total MLP nerd. That's not a bad thing, right?
Not really, I go deep in the lore of MLP, such has make connections to human mythological legends and folktales. The most prominent example be the Arthurian Legends.
Starswirl the Bearded: He shows fine exmaples of being Merlin, adviser of King Arthur. Starswirl shows many similarities to Merlin. Both born with great magical capabilities, both connected to a royal family (specifically, the King/princesses). While Starswirl never stated on Celestia and Luna's parents (possibility that Stawswirl personally knew them but who knows?). And like also, Starswirl was stuck in Limbo, while Merlin was stuck in a stone rock for all eternity.
Canterlot: Shows IMMENSE identity to Camelot, the castle and the location of the Knights of the Round Table, and Arthur's Court. And some depicted that Camelot was on the side of a mountain, exactly like Canterlot. While it is unknown if Excalibur exists in MLP, but there is a chance considering the many Arthurian connections.
Ah... I see. I always wandered what Canterlot was a reference too. I knew it was a reference to something, just couldn't put my finger on it. But that's besides the big picture, you've done more research then I had originally thought.
