Hi, welcome to Invader ZIM Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Zim's Base page.Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Lord Kenny (Talk) 20:41, September 17, 20 10
Hi, Dykeatron, I was just passing by to say hello, how are you? hi and good
can you help on Zim and Tak's relationship?
Dykeatron, you have fixed vandalism, right?. Are you interested in the Rollback rights?. -- Gato
- Yes, rollbacking works with everyone, with or without account. I'm glad to grant you the rollback rights, congratulations!. Thank you for being so supportive and help this wiki so much, I'm very grateful!. -- Gato
Top of the Line
By order of InvaderMEEN (me) and Gato sin suerte, I have removed the fanon script of Top of the Line from the canon article and placed it in Invader Club Wiki, under Top of the Line. Please keep ALL fanon, however true to the canon, separate from the canon. Invader MEEN 20:20, December 10, 2010 (UTC)
Well, if you do find the user who is doing that, please tell them where it is and to work on it there. (and the bit about fanon and canon mixing).
Invader MEEN 19:57, December 12, 2010 (UTC)
You would be an excellent administrator, aren't you interested?. Gato sin suerte 07:27, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
- Wow, each time we speak you impress me, usually the people is way to fast to raise the hand in the matter of being an admin or a bureaucrat, and they don't think in the responsabilities they'd have to bear... But answering your question, It'd be expected from you, that you guide the users (specially newcomers) that need to be guide, to block trolls, to always be polite and understading, to delete useless pages and fix whatever can be fixed, to notice the flaws in the wiki and think in a way to fix them and to think in ways to make the wiki grow and improve; among other things of the same nature. Of course, you wouldn't do this alone, the other admins and me are here precisely for that, and if there is something you couldn't (or wouldn't like to) do, other admin will take care of that (like if you don't know anything of the code and templates are needed, other admin would take care of that). I don't expect you to be here everyday (not even I'm here everyday), but I do expect you to improve the wiki when you're around. Also, don't be scared of messing things up, everything can be fixed.
- in a nutshell, admins are here to serve. Are you interested? need more details?. Gato sin suerte 02:41, January 3, 2011 (UTC)
- Congratulations and well deserved!, You are officially an admin. A last thing I want to ask you, is that, please don't be so fast while deleting contributions, a lot of the users (specially newcomers), are intimidated when they see a wiki like this, and are not sure on how or what contribute, so when they do small contributions, even those which seem small, be understanding, and patient (if they need to be guided, leave them a message about what they can't do or what they did wrong). And if you need help with anything or you don't know exactly what to do in a situation, you always can ask me. Gato sin suerte 03:25, January 3, 2011 (UTC)
This wiki will use the wikia badges. I'm very sorry for not informing you this before. Here is more information User blog:Gato sin suerte/Badges, please help us with the names. Gato sin suerte 06:16, January 12, 2011 (UTC)
hi um... Olivia? okk so r u an administrator? and if u r r u one of the MAIN admins? and WHEN did u b-come an admin? sorry, i ask lots of questions, even Gato sin suerte knows, i ask him//her everything (i dunno) magic8ball8 sorry, i dont pay attention to things
Thanks for welcomeing me to Invader Zim Wiki! If I need any help I will be sure to ask you.Iloveyoucoldunfealingrobotarm 01:17, January 26, 2011 (UTC)
New spammer on your wiki
A couple of days ago you deleted a page called "Ed edd n eddy across the 3rd dimension" by what appears to be IP address 18.104.22.168. This same person has been going from wiki to wiki, spamming their name on existing pages and creating new pages so they can spam their name on those, as well. I have tracked them to over 50 different IP addresses beginning with 92.251 and 178.167 on 8 different wikis.
Wikia's spam filter has been updated to prevent some of what they are adding, but it can't catch all of it. You will see any or all of the following:
- The names Cillian, Lorcan, Ashling and Jessie, sometimes with the last name of Darcy.
- That he is "a warrior".
- That people have been kidnapped and he's going to rescue them.
- Seems to like balloons.
- References to the show Ed, Edd and Eddy.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you might as well be ready to issue blocks because once he appears on a wiki, you will see him many more times. -RRabbit42 (leave a message) 05:55, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
I know this is a dumb question, considering everyone knows how to (except me), but how do you add pictures to pages? Well, I know that there is a button in the corner, but how do you get the pictures to add in the first place?Iloveyoucoldunfealingrobotarm 15:39, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

Hi i wanted to know if any one here knows how to make Invader Zim animations
Hey, I noticed you peeps deleted the page about the relationship of Gaz and Gir. The info CAN be found elsewhere, but only in bits and peices, so could you guys please UNdelete it? Thanks!
Hi there, and back at 'cha! :3RebelSoliderFex 20:25, March 12, 2011 (UTC)
youve gots to follow my page on zims bro.
for the welcome. LED ZEPPELIN FOREVER!!! 17:39, April 8, 2011 (UTC)
How do you add headlines to pages?! I can't find out how!
Silent and clever evil. Its better then being a moron. 03:09, April 11, 2011 (UTC)Mid
There's an article, posted by an anonymous user, that's completely unrelated to the IZ world, and pretty much anything else. It's titled "poooooooooooop". I would try to help the article in some other way, but I don't know everything about how this Wikia works yet, as I'm new.
EvanescentBreeze 21:31, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
I appreciate all the help you've done for this wiki, and with adding pages to categories, but isn't it a bit unnecessary to add a page to minor characters if it's already listed as a stock character? if you need more help with adding pages to categories, you can find a link to the guide on the wiki corner on the recent activity page. again, thank you for contributing to this wiki! Invader777 02:38, April 30, 2011 (UTC)
The difference between stock characters and minor characters, is that stock characters are characters that make an appearance in a few episodes, but don't have any speaking parts or affect the plot line of an episode in any way. In general, they're just background characters. For example, Adult Dib is a stock character. A minor character is a character that has speaking lines and is usually involved in the plot somehow. The only thing that doesn't make them supporting characters, is that they may only have an appearance in one or two episodes. An example for that would be Moofy. She has a major role in an episode and has speaking lines, but she only makes one appearance in the show overall. I would be very grateful if you fixed the categories. Invader777 18:18, April 30, 2011 (UTC)
Read this please :-)
This is the person who rewrite the "Gaz and GIR's relationship page. I'm sorry I rewrite it, I didn't know it had been deleted, I only joined yesterday.
Sure you can get rid of it. But in the future, please tell me if sopmething is being deleted so I won't remake it if I notice it's missing. And do you agree, Dib's head is big? :-)
This must be anserwed :-0
Has there been a update on if Nickelodeon's going to continue Zim after operation doom?
Nice :-). By any chance, do you know when the new episodes will start being made?
DECEMBER!? Well that's stupid :-(
True about the crazy card, so true
Oh. Does that mean Invader Skoodge and Zim's Relationshipwill be destroyed to?

Your welcome.Ibarber 06:06, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, dude, for your help on my Nicktoons: MLB page!!!
Thus might be a dumb question, but how do you post, And a purple text is in , And then you click on it and leads you to a another zim wiki thing. Ex: When I click on a purple text "Zim", It shows me Zim's Wiki page. HOW DO YOU???
Thank you again!
Thank you again.
Zim & Gaz in MLB
If you see Gaz in the MLB page, don't edit it, I saw the trailer today and saw Gaz in it too!
Just wanted to say thanks for the warm welcome! I'm glad to be a part of this community! ^__^
I noticed you editing and I just wanna say.... HI! Man, over one thousand edits! I'm only at..... three hundred? about..... So yeah lol I just like so socialize :) Invader 00:27, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
WHY WOULD YOU DELETE DA' PAGE UTMOIZ?????? WHYYYYY. Thank you thats all have to say.
This message was by: Invader Zade herself.
I AM APART OF THE NERDY-TRASHBAG PEOPLE!~ Literraly :P
Just Making Sure...
So, um... I noticed that lots of my posts and edits are being deleted... Don't get me wrong! I'm not angry at all! I'm just curious as to why, and to make sure I'm not being a nuisance with... Uninformative or... Spam-ish? edits...! I don't want to be a bother and end up banned, so any clarification would be awesome. Thank you so much! ^__^
D.Skitty 00:27, August 11, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much for clarifying that for me. I'll definitely make sure to keep an eye on that sort of thing from now on. :D
I also wanted to say thank you for your courtesy; I've been involved in a few different fanbases and more often than not they weren't exactly... friendly, to put it simply. So, again, thanks for everything! ^__^
D.Skitty 20:13, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Is there anyway to change your name? Because I can't figure out how.

Hi! I'm Mark, from Wikia's Content Team. I'm here to offer my help to redesign your mainpage. The actual content will stay mostly the same, however, we need to create 2 seperate columns using special tags so that the ads on your mainpage will not mess up the layout of the page and puss it down about 300 pixels. I will show you the redesigned mainpage first so you can comment on it, so don't worry about that. Please leave me a message on my talkpage with your decision. Cheers, Mark (talk) 20:51, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
I see that you're donning a new icon. Quite nice. PrimusGod 20:02, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

I've noticed that Darkinvaderdoomirken has been flooding the wiki a lot more recently, and it's becoming quite a frustration. Shouldn't it be time to take some sort of action against this, such as an IP block of some sort? PrimusGod 22:15, October 24, 2011 (UTC)
We are saved! PrimusGod 08:06, October 25, 2011 (UTC)
You said I could ship my fanon charaters. How do I do that? (Invader Trine Creator 10:08, October 30, 2011 (UTC))
Well, when I do to my blog, it won't show my blog post. But if I go into contributions, and click on the name of the blog post, it works fine. Is this my computer or a system glitch?
Jilly57 19:07, November 19, 2011 (UTC)
Well, I restarted it and it's working now...maybe it was just a glitch in my computer. Heh, OK.

Heya. I don't know how involved you or your fellow admin are on Operation Head Pigeons but do pop over to Invader Force facebook page (our quiet and less crowded subsidiary facebook page where members can be productive) if you're interested in pitching ideas on how to help us out or vice versa.

Hi there. Wanted to make some revisements for the (appropriately) locked Operation Doom page. Pop over to its talk page when you cank. Thank you! :) 22.214.171.124 20:40, December 14, 2011 (UTC)

i dont know
i guess. go ask Dr. Annoymous1
hey this is the creator of the operation room with a moose page can you clean up the operation room with a moose page and by the way do you want to join operation room with a moose and if your with ohp2.0 or the irken empire tell your leader that i want to become alies ps i am almighty tallest black 126.96.36.199 20:16, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
Umm.. Why did you revert the "Minimoose" page? "Zim's Sidekicks" seems like a legitimate category. And President Man DOES qualify as a world leader.Dr. Anonymous1 23:59, December 31, 2011 (UTC)
OK, thanks for that. I'll keep that in mind in the future.Dr. Anonymous1 01:45, January 1, 2012 (UTC)
Incidentally, I couldn't help noticing that the "Doctor Who Fanon Wiki" is among your "favorite Wikis". Was this just the result of a one-off visit, or are you actually a fan of the series?Dr. Anonymous1 03:04, January 1, 2012 (UTC)
Just thought i'd say hello.
Don't know if I'll be of much major help on here, I just wanna help with cleaning up some pages.
Also, I found two episode pages ('The Frycook What Came From All That Space' and 'Abducted') earlier that seemed like they were vandalized by someone who is not a member. They were completely gone. I put them back, but is there anything we can do to make sure they don't do it again?
Hey, thanks for welcoming me to the IZ wiki. You can link me unfinished entries or entries that need to exist and I'll try to write them up!
Invader Riki, signing off!
I think I am the tallest Invader on Irk... other than the Tallest of course! 01:04, January 6, 2012 (UTC)
Why not? I think it's good idea. Refreshing a main page thanks to that would be a nice change too.
So yeah, it's a good time to change featured article/quote (and poll maybe?) I've had an idea to make voting page for featured article/quote/picture, but apparently the idea died when Gato disappeared (again).
By writing rules maybe we should throw some more restrictions? Sometimes it's annoying when Anonymous Wikia Contributors are making new, useless pages or even the logged ones are making many wrong edits (spam and not only). Since we have rules written there Invader ZIM Wiki:Ways To Help maybe we should throw it on the talk page for every new member and perhaps forbid making edits on some pages for Anonymous editors? Teneery 08:14, January 7, 2012 (UTC)
For now we can go on with one of the most important pages as the featured article. About quotes - not sure if it would work, but perhaps I should try making a template which would contain a box with random, different quotes everytime somebody is visitng a page?
I will try to find a way to edit that message, although I'm afraid that only Gato could do something about it, being a main admin and all. Although User:PrimusGod also wrote to me about that - don't know if you read that or no, but she left the message on my talk page just under yours, on the very bottom - perhaps you should take a look on her advice and then we'll decide what exactly we should do. Teneery 08:00, January 8, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for adding the "Canceled Characters" category. I was thinking that it was "unused" characters". Thanks for setting me straight on that. Dr. Anonymous 23:38, January 7, 2012 (UTC)
Were you the one who sent me that message on my Talk Page? -- Dr. Anonymous 02:32, January 8, 2012 (UTC)
Disregard my previous message; I found out who the culprit was; Invader Lena. There really should be a reminder that pops up if you try to "publish" a message without a signature, don't ya think?--Dr. Anonymous 00:00, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for adding that picture in "Shunk Wugga"; I can't upload photos on my iPod Touch. How DO you take screenshots, anyway? --Dr. Anonymous 01:38, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
Has been a while!
Hey I've been horribly busy with college and I hadn't had time to come back, I thought I had left a bureaucrat before I went absent (again), but I just read a message someone left me saying that I didn't, so I just came by to promote you and Teneery, both of you have done a wonderful job around the wiki, sorry for not doing it sooner.
I won't be able to come back to help until summer vacations, at least :(
Gato sin suerte 06:26, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
Congratulations and Excessive Praise
Congratulations on becoming a Bureaucrat! Quite honestly, I think that both you and Teenery were WAY overdue for a promotion, as you have both proved yourselves to be exceptional leaders in the past. Seriously, though, that isn't flattery: you're FAR more open and friendly than the admins on the other Wikis I've visited. On some Wikis, they just use the Talk page to let you know when you've broken the rules. And yet they have a chat room! Generally, as you'd suspect, they only use it to talk about how they should ban this guy or how that episode was the "worst episode ever". That's all they do!
But you guys don't do that. You treat others like they're human beings, and I commend that. Congratulations again on a well-needed promotion, and sorry for wasting your time with such a tedious, happy-filled encomium. Dr. Anonymous 02:25, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
WTF with SOPA?
Okayyy... Lemme get this straight: are ALL Wikia sites being completely blacked out due to this whole "anti-piracy" BS? Dr. Anonymous 01:49, January 18, 2012 (UTC)
Well, not exactly, actually: I read through that little message at the bottom of your page, and it says that, to protest against SOPA, all Wikia sites are going to have their skins and ads removed temporarily. Not the whole site, thank God. Quite honestly, I can really do without those obnoxious ads, but the skin... well, it doesn't seem to have impacted this site much, now has it? Y'know, I think we should have the Irken military logo in the background (not the smiley face or the "bird-signal", the one with the circle in the center), rather than the "I'M NORMAL!" picture. The current picture's too distracting imo, and besides, the Irken logo would look much more... sinister. MWA-HAHAHAHAAA!!!! Dr. Anonymous 21:38, January 18, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for getting those pictures in; I'd do it, but I'm currently battling four projects and two tests, all of which (due to an unlucky bout of stupidity on my teachers' part) all are due tomorrow. Sorry, just needed to vent a little; the stress is getting to me. Dr. Anonymous 22:24, January 23, 2012 (UTC)
And what beautiful screenshots they are. ;-)
And thanks; I'm gonna need it!! Dr. Anonymous 01:15, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, I need some help, big time: my iPod Touch just did something a bit odd: whenever I access any Wikia sites on it, Safari now redirects me to the crappy "mobile" version of the Wiki, which only allows the Wiki's basic content. No editing, no logging in, no talk pages, NOTHING.
Normally, I'd banish this lousy substitute with the "Full Site" button at the bottom of the page. However, when I clicked it this time, the P.O.S. just reloaded the s***ty mobile version. I did it again and again, but no luck. I then tried resetting, deleting all website data, everything. No luck.
If you have any idea what to do, please reply ASAP. Thanks!Dr. Anonymous 22:01, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
I was wondering...
Have you played the Metroid series?

Request for Administrative Privileges
Hey, Dykeatron. I know this might seem like I'm asking a bit much, but is there any chance that... y'know... you could make me an administrator? It's just that, besides the fact that I could do more good here as an administrator, we've also been very hard-pressed for Admins since Gato left us.
I'm okay if you decline, but I'm kind of hoping you'll say yes. :-' User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:25, February 11, 2012 (UTC)
Voting of the Doomed
Well, it's my understanding that bureaucrats naturally have the ability to promote other users whenever they want. Still, you could hold it to a vote. Doubt PG will vote for me, though... I honestly don't know what she's holding against me, but I'm getting kinda depressed by it. User: Dr. Anonymous1 21:41, February 11, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, where DID Teenery go off to? At any rate, it DOES help that InvaderMEEN is one of my best friends. I'll e-mail him about it, but for impartiality's sake I'll also contact Gato and Lord Kenny. User: Dr. Anonymous1 15:07, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, Dr. Anonymous1 has proven to me to be a great user. He has plenty of experience with wikis, and is an active contributor. I also know him in person, and he is not one to vandalize.
So, just to recap, yes, I belileve that he deserves admin.
Hey, thank you so much! Of course, I understand the responsibilities that come with this, and I vow never to abuse these powers. Thankfully, I'm good at resolving conflicts.
By the way, d'you think it's time to update the Main Page? I mean, all of its content has been collecting dust up there for about 2-3 months, and I have a feeling that we need to make a few changes. Perhaps hold a new contest? Maybe a new poll?
Actually, I was thinking of some ideas for new polls. For example, favorite characters, Series 2 episodes, etc. As for promoting other Zim sites, I dunno how Nick'd react to that idea, and while we DO have Jhonen's permission, we should, in the face of uncertainty, hold back on that matter.
Of the more important matters, however, is the background for our site. Personally, I am in favor of a change from the current "I'm NORMAL!" picture to something a bit more representative of the show as a whole, and perhaps less visually distracting. PrimusGod has made it very clear to me that she is opposed to this idea, but I think it's best if all users discussed this issue on a forum page and contributed ideas if necessary. Also, I accidentally enabled the Wiki's "Chat" function. It actually looked pretty good, but I disabled it again so that we could vote on the idea, in case some users object. User: Dr. Anonymous1 21:07, February 14, 2012 (UTC)
Excellent! Unfortunately, I have to go to bed now, so we should talk about this in the morning before school. Thanks, User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:02, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and happy Valentine's Day! User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:14, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
- Y I doubt Doctor activated the chat function "on accident", as he had full intentions on activating it when/if he ever became Administrator. I, for one, object to having such a ridiculous function. PrimusGod 11:01, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
To Delete or Not to Delete?
Hey, I noticed that CorrCorro just created a page on Santa Claus. I don't know what we should do with it; should we delete it, or should we just rewrite it? I mean, look at it. Just wanted to ask your opinion before I went draconian on it. Plus, I don't know how to delete pages. Do you? User: Dr. Anonymous1 22:43, February 16, 2012 (UTC)
Might wanna keep an eye on this new user, "The pussinboots678." User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:16, February 21, 2012 (UTC)
You know, I've been thinking: we have all these pages about the Irken race, Irken Empire, Irken Armada, Irken society... Shouldn't we just, for the sake of efficiency, put them all under one page? Just an idea. User: Dr. Anonymous1 22:39, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
== Proposed rule
OK. However I'm currently working on writing a succinct-yet-equally informative article about the mighty Irken race for the Alien Species Wiki. I'll let you know when it's done.
In the meantime, I'd like to talk about the case of the user known as Mjp20031. And her recent "spam" articles. Contrary to Zimfan's theories, I suspect that these are not, in fact, intentional spam, and she is in reality unfamiliar with Wiki use. In other words, these were made in good faith. My advice for cases like this? I say we copy all the material within the erroneous article, delete said article, and paste its content onto the creator's Talk page, along with a message informing them about this Wiki's rules and a recommendation that they put such things in the form of blog posts.
Whoof, that wore out my thumbs. I await your ruling. Thanks, User: Dr. Anonymous1 11:29, February 28, 2012 (UTC)
Well, the only problem with the current method is that there is the likelihood that they will not heed the deadline, or they'll not come back for a few months, and find that their hard work has been deleted without their notice. At the risk of sounding arrogant, I think it'd be better if we went with my idea. Thanks! User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:40, February 29, 2012 (UTC)
Re: Main Page
Hey, I'd love to! I was hoping you'd ask! Unfortunately, I'm only available after 12 pm both Saturday and Sunday (New York Time). Hope that's still doable. So happy you asked, though; I was wondering when we could get around to that. Never mind that made me feel all happy and fuzzy-like inside; never forget the happiness and... fuzzy-like-ness.
Random rambling aside, though...
Incidentally, do you prefer to be called Olivia? I've always wondered that. I'm assuming you do, but.. Y'know.
Thanks again! User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:02, March 1, 2012 (UTC)
Odd... I just discovered today that, on Saturday, we'll be wasting five hours selling mulch for a fundraiser. Creeepy. You haven't been watching me with video cameras, have you? ;-)
Seriously, though, I can totally understand why you changed your name; that would be awkward. ;-)
At any rate, I've made a short list of things we should discuss changing during the revampage meeting:
- The logo/title card for ZimWiki.
- Featured article
- New Contest
Revampage... Ever notice how we both share this bizarre talent for coining these weird new words?
Oh, and is there any chance we could meet with Johnny on Sunday at 3-pm-ish? How are we going to meet?
User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:30, March 2, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, darn. ;-)
In any case, I forgot about the featured quote. Thanks for reminding me. Fortunately, however, I have (with PrimusGod's help) already created a new poll. As for the watermark; we'll just have to vote on that. My idea was to use the Irken Military logo, or something else that's a bit less visually distracting and a bit more... Irkeny. Yay, I coined another term!
Oh, and I WAS referring to the little rectangular box. Sounds like your man CB Johnny has some good ideas. Send that to me, 'k?
There was a Christmas layout? Awww... I missed that. Now I'm sad. Speaking of which: you use Facebook? What's your username? Any chance you could get Johnny to create a Wikia account using the same username, and meet us here?
I haven't used Facebook for a LONG while, though, so I don't remember the ins and outs of carrying on a conversation there.
At any rate, I'm available at 3:30 pm on Sunday, so I hope that's OK with you.
By the way, WHICH username were you referring to?
User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:16, March 3, 2012 (UTC)
Brilliant! So, where should we meet tomorrow: maybe I could temporarily activate the chat function at 3:30? Or, perhaps, we could just use the chat on Alien Species Wiki. I can't do Facebook chatting, so... Yeah. Chat's the only way for me. That or talk pages.
By the way, should I alert the other major members of the Wiki? Doesn't seem fair that only two admins get to change the Wiki without their consent. User: Dr. Anonymous1 21:53, March 3, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I talked with Holbenilord and Bluefrackle about it: they're cool with it. But then, they're naturally easygoing to begin with, so that's not exactly a surprise. Good guys, though: apparently Holbenilord is a fellow Whovian.
Oh, and make sure that Johnny also knows about where/when we're meeting. Thanks! User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:03, March 4, 2012 (UTC)
Hm, InvaderMEEN handed me that very same file a year ago; didn't work. Here's to hoping this version works better! Thanks! User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:24, March 5, 2012 (UTC)
Hmmm, like the armada idea... caption's a bit wordy, though. Plus, you have all these other sites also claiming to e the #1 Zim database, so we need a memorable line that sets us apart, such as "Spread the Invasion!"
Now, a screenshot of ZIM... funny you should mention that: my logo idea actually includes such a screenshot. Y'know the main menu screens for Complete Invasion, with that shadowy purple mass of Irken cables serving as the background? I was thinking of using that background, with the military logo in the center, and, to top it off, a watermark of Zim's sneering/cackling visage to the direct left of the logo. Adds a nice sense of impending doom, if you ask me.
Of course, these are all still works in progress, so let me know what you think about them! User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:10, March 6, 2012 (UTC)
Excellent! So it's agreed, then? I think I could do it myself... Except for the watermark bit. That could be kinda hard. User: Dr. Anonymous1 11:28, March 6, 2012 (UTC)
I like the banner you made. Though the "Number one source for all things invader zim" seems a bit cheesy, in my opinion. The graphics are nice, though, and the colors of the text and backgrounds compliment each other nicely. PrimusGod 11:30, March 6, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll work on sketching it out now. Should the title be on the top or bottom? User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:58, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
We Got a Live One
OK, I took a look at the recent contributions kindly made by 188.8.131.52, and it appears we have a vandal on our hands. If it's OK with you, I'm gonna ban his sorry little behind for a week. User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:07, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
Wow, you're up at this hour? Man, you're devoted.
Just whacked him with the banhammer. No need to worry about him. By the way, in the unlikely event that a "Metroiderator" decides to pop by, just ban him. User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:17, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
Main Page problem solved!
Ok, before I give you my BRILLIANT idea regarding the main page, let me just say how unbelievably AWESOME your new avatar is. Seriously, the awesomeness is burning my eyes.
Anyway, my aMAZing plan: you know how I took issue with the banner idea listing Soapy Waffles, OHP and the other fan organisations we support, and you expressed a desire to make the clicking of each picture direct you to the corresponding fansite? Well, the answer to both of our problems has been sitting right in front of us all along: we simply use the same "Irken screens" we use to direct you to the rules page, administrators, cast, etc!.. Albeit in a different color or smaller size, of course.
Of course, neither of us are experts in computer programming, but in the event that we can't figure out a way to "reverse-engineer" the coding for the Irken screens, InvaderMEEN might be able to help us out. He is an expert in that kind of thing.
Let me know what you think! User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:18, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
i think ur hot
Jimmyrustler 02:25, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't reply on time; my school schedule's CUH-RAZY. At any rate, your praise is SO refreshing after a spending two hours screwing up in P.E. Thank you SO much! I credit your Doctor Who pic for my epiphany. ;-)
By the way, what was that whole thing with that "Jimmyrustler" person? Do you know him/her personally, or what? User: Dr. Anonymous1 19:29, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not done yet.
Hmm.. Do you mean "girlfriend" colloquially, or literally? Not that it matters to me, just... Y'know... idle curiosity. Damn, that came out all wrong. User: Dr. Anonymous1 20:48, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
Ah. That way? I'm sorry if I sound kind of rude; it's just that I myself was beginning to like you a bit ;-). Nothing really noteworthy; just maybe a mild crush. Wow, I can't believe I'm pouring all this out. Anywho, we can still be friends, right? User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:17, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
Not "My Bad"... For a change.
Heh, sorry about that the other day; someone got a hold of my iPod (my older brother). He's been teasing me for a while about "my girlfriend" online. I like you as a friend, nothing more. A good friend, no doubt about that, but still: nothing different.
Now, to ease the awkwardness surrounding that little whatchamacallit, I had a thought: while we don't generally support Fanon per se, don't you think we should have articles about the OHP, Soapy Waffles, Operation Massive, etc.? User: Dr. Anonymous1 13:56, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
Believe me, following that little incident I told him he was a lot of things... None of which I can list in polite company. >:-(
In any case, my suggestion was exactly that: just include a nice, unbiased summary without anything suggesting that readers do one thing or another. Believe me, I learned how important impartiality in a recent History class, where we were presenting our research projects: One student researched some Christian youth group, but she didn't do much informing, and it was clear that her main goal was just to try and make us join. She even handed out FLYERS, for Chrissake! Ay, carumba.
Yes, I go on long, irrelevant tangents like this. Why do you ask?
Anywhos, you're absolutely right: OHP and Soapy Waffles are definitely ones we should do first. Just include a brief history, the founders... You get the idea. Thanks! User: Dr. Anonymous1 21:59, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, do you know what happened to the infoboxes for Zim and Dib? The colors appear to have gone screwy again. Didja get my last message? User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:14, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
I'm assuming the problem you were trying to solve was that of Zim's hands and antennae blending in with the background? I'd suggest reverting it, then replacing that picture with an identical one that has a white background. It's not that you had a bad idea, it's just that the hot-pink-and-lime-green color scheme really doesn't fit in with the Wiki's skin color scheme. At the risk of sounding like a cantankerous old man, it just looked better before. Perhaps dark magenta would work? User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:32, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
Well, yeah, that too, I guess. I just didn't want to be rude.. ;-)
Well, that IS a definite improvement, but I think it'd be better if the "caption boxes" are always a darker color than the infobox itself. Actually, IMO, it was just perfect as it was originally. Are you OK with a white background? How do you change the color scheme of infoboxes? User: Dr. Anonymous1 11:47, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, so it wasn't you? Ah, didn't get that the first time.
At any rate, we could color the background a dark purple, maybe. I dunno. I'll work on it. Thank you, Windows Paint. User: Dr. Anonymous1 19:51, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
OK, just uploaded two pics. You think one'd be good enough for the main infobox picture?User: Dr. Anonymous1 20:15, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
You'd think that it would be, but no, it's genuine. User: Dr. Anonymous1 22:10, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
Y'knows, we could just make the infoboxes black, with purple/magenta captioning. I think that's work fine.
Off-task, whi's your favorite Doctor Who villain? User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:41, March 11, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, yes, the infamous Master. For some reason, when I see his name all I can think of is the number four and the scene where he was watching Teletubbies. :-/
IMO, the Daleks are the best. Shame Steve Moffat decided to create a candy-colored "Officer" caste with huge buttcracks. At least he changed his mind and decided to keep the old ones. Thank god. Yep, I'm a purist. Kudos to you for naming your cuddly pet after Britain's deadliest race of killing machines. ;-) User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:16, March 11, 2012 (UTC)
By the way, what's your typical schedule? It'd be nice just to talk once in a while without having to wait for 2+ hours until the other person logs back on. :-' User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:29, March 11, 2012 (UTC)
As long as he doesn't try to crush your head with a plunger.
I'm guessing you mean three pm? That's good.
Heh, saw the IZ Pilot the other day. We've come so far. User: Dr. Anonymous1 13:59, March 11, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and I fixed the GIR infobox, by the way. Thank god. User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:27, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
Heh, thanks. Mine too, especially in Season 2. Still, seeing as you already have the same thing... Then again, maybe I'll keep it; I dunno. User: Dr. Anonymous1 10:20, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
Hey! What's up? Look, I just took care of another moronic vandal, and I did the obvious. "Behold the Doctor, the Great Exterminator." ;-) Heh, Doctor Who references. Lena's a fan too, apparently.
I had a thought: Should PrimusGod be made an Admin? We could have an Irken Triumvirate! Sorry, read Shakespeare's Julius Caesar lately, and I was surprised to find that the ordinary people in Caesar were EXACTLY as stupid as the humans in IZ! Weird, huh?
User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:41, March 13, 2012 (UTC)
Actually, it wasn't that bad. Kinda funny, really... Especially when people mispronounced stuff.
Now, with PrimusGod... My only concern about her being in a leadership position is that her harsh manner will scare away new members. As for whether she wants said position or not, I dunno; she said she didn't want it, but she was rather irritated with my promotion then, so it might have been "sour grapes" (pardon the Aesopic allusion). We could just ask her again. Couldn't hurt. User: Dr. Anonymous1 10:25, March 13, 2012 (UTC)
OK, I got a few good screenshots of Zita and Chunk as they first appeared in the Pilot. You think I should add those to their respective articles, just to show how they originally appeared? Oh, and I even got one of "Squee". And they said it couldn't be done! User: Dr. Anonymous1 10:24, March 14, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, Olivia; haven't heard from you for awhile. What's new?
By the way, Phineas10 invited me yesterday to meet with some users from the Spanish ZimWiki on their Chat room. It was fun... but awkward; They're great people, but you have to know a good deal of Spanish to understand everything they're saying... Which I do not. I had to get Phineas10 to translate for me. ;-)
Anyway, apparently they dislike sleep, so they're open pretty much all the time. Any chance we could all meet there sometime, and hang out? :-)
User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:42, March 16, 2012 (UTC)
Ouch. What kind of volunteer work? Doesn't sound very voluntary. What grade are you in, anyway?
User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:55, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
Ah. I'm a sophomore. User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:07, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, jist so you know: I have now standardized all of the Season 1 Transcripts by adding the transcript box-list-thing at the bottom of each one, and adding the "Season 1 Transcripts" category. Not something to be taken lightly; it was a LOT of work, lemme tell you.
However, as I was doing this, I discovered that multiple transcripts are not yet completed. These include, but are not limited to:
- Battle of the Planets
- Career Day
- Tak, the Hideous New Girl
- The Voting of the Doomed
- Mysterious Mysteries
- The Girl Who Cried Gnome
Just thought I'd give you an update. Dr. Anonymous, signing off!
User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:20, March 20, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, you're welcome! Anything I can do. And I ain't done yet!
You still doing that volunteer work?
User: Dr. Anonymous1 10:25, March 20, 2012 (UTC)
What kind of volunteer work do you do, anyway? Just curious. User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:20, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, that's neat! Wish I could do something like that. 'Course, with only 15 minutes of free time per day, it's kinda hard to commit to anything else. Sigh....
User: Dr. Anonymous1 23:04, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
Congrats on getting the "True Fan" badge! Zimfan:D 05:09, March 26, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, haven't heard from you for awhile while. You all right?
By the way: for the episode page of Door to Door, there are two different summaries of the episode (one is titled "synopsis"). In order to keep episode articles standardized, I think we should try merging the two. Good idea? User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:51, March 29, 2012 (UTC)
the screenshot pages:
Hi dykea, are the Screenshot pages open to edit for all people, or is it just admin? Or, is it not even able to edit at all. Zimfan:D 00:31, March 31, 2012 (UTC)
Well Teneery has not edited for over two months, and most likely hasn't logged on in a while. So, I don't think asking him is really a option. If I Didn't Like Invader Zim, My Username Wouldn't Be Zimfan 17:38, April 4, 2012 (UTC)
Ok great then! If I Didn't Like Invader Zim, My Username Wouldn't Be Zimfan 20:31, April 4, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, Olivia, I had a question: Do you think I should go ahead and make the Zim, Dib, GIR and Gaz pages open to registered users only, instead of just Admins? Personally, I think we should (only template pages should be locked, IMO), but I wanted to run it by you, since you're the leader round here and, well, you're AWESOME... Although awesomeness doesn't really have an effect on the level of authority one has, does it? Hmm...
Anywho, I had another question: Do you think Zimfan might be due for a promotion? Considering the - well, considerable number of contributions he's made recently...
User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:22, April 5, 2012 (UTC)
Well, considering that there are only two admins here, and that a large majority of the "bad" edits that are made on pages are done so by unregistered users, the most reasonable approach would be to allow access to registered users ONLY; that way, we can track any vandals down and, if need be, ban their sorry little behinds.
Actually, ZimFan hasn't asked for any such thing; that's one of the reasons I think he'd be a good choice. User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:00, April 6, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, off-topic: You know that recent pirate-comedy-film-thingy that Aardman's been shooting? Well, I looked at the cast for it, and guess who's in it? DAVID TENNANT! EEEEEEE!!!!!!
Honestly, I was wondering what he's been up to since marrying Georgia Moffat.. Another collection of bizarre coincidences, eh? User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:24, April 6, 2012 (UTC)
Apparently, he'll be voicing Charles Darwin. That'll be interesting.
Equally awesome!!! User: Dr. Anonymous1 23:18, April 6, 2012 (UTC)
Well, Zimfan has proven himself in every way. Should we go ahead and make him an Admin? User: Dr. Anonymous1 19:08, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
Well, as the title says, thanks for making me a administrator! I promise to be the best I can with my new-found powers. (Oh and P.S, I'm screaming in joy, in real life :P ) If I Didn't Like Invader Zim, My Username Wouldn't Be Zimfan 20:09, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, Olivia: Is there any chance we could hold another conference in the Chat Room next Sunday at 3, to discuss how we can improve the rules of the Wiki? Reason I'm asking is 'cause they're rather vague in their current form. Definitely could use some room for improvement. And I got some good ones! User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:54, April 12, 2012 (UTC)
Well, I'm having a friend over this Sunday, Saturdays and weekdas of any kind are out of the question, and the Sunday after next you're busy... How 'bout the Sunday after those two? Gonna be a while from now, but it may be worth it. User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:11, April 13, 2012 (UTC)
And yeah, I was the one enabled it; PrimusGod was the only one against it, and since she hasn't been around for a few months, and everyone else was clamoring for its enabling, I decided to do so as a test run. It seems to have paid off. Sorry I didn't ask first. User: Dr. Anonymous1 10:21, April 13, 2012 (UTC)
Re: Quick Favor
Well, I kinda still want to do that, but I haven't gotten around to making the "monitor" picture thingies that'll serve as hyperlinks to the various sites. I'll get it done soon, though.
However, I WILL put up the link you gave me. Should I just put it under a sub-title that says "LOOK! NEW CONTEST!", or do you want something specific? User: Dr. Anonymous1 10:21, April 16, 2012 (UTC)
Well, that explains a bit. Gahh, that must suck. AP? Man, and I thought Honors English and Biology were bad! 8-*
At any rate, you really didn't have to worry about missing the little rules conference I was planning to have yesterday; I forgot that we had to spend that day preparing for my dad's retirement ceremony, and apparently Zimfan had something going on as well. Just let us know when you're free, and we'll reschedule the conference to suit that. That cool? :-)
Oh, another thing: Zimfan recently came up with the bright idea of holding an IZ trivia contest on the Chat, starting after school gets out. Each contestant will receive 45 seconds to answer a question, and whoever receives the most wins.... Something. I dunno yet. We can promote it on Community Messages. Sound like a good idea? User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:56, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
Hey Olivia. I saw the Rise of the Zitboy Screenshots page, and I think we should change the pages to that format. But I wanted your ok. I asked Dr. Anonymous (too lazy to add the link), but he never responded. So, can we? It would make it easier for other users to add pictures, and that would be nice. Hi, I'm Zimfan! Talk To me! I Am Normal. 02:57, May 19, 2012 (UTC)
Wait, which format? :P The older one, or the newer ones. I'm thinking you're talking about reverting it to the older format, but I'm not 100% sure (stupid me.) XP Hi, I'm Zimfan! Talk To me! I Am Normal. 21:27, May 19, 2012 (UTC)
Offtopic though: I learned how to add pics to the screenshot page in the old format. You want to know?
Moving to another wiki for a while.
Yep, you heard me right. I am moving to Making Fiends Wiki for a while. I noticed the wiki has quite a few things to fix up, and since there's almost no users, I might as well move there. Besides, I have proposed quite a few major changes to the wiki (such as transcripts, a facts section on each page), plus I have to add screenshot pages, so yeah, that could take AT LEAST until summer.
Even though I'm leaving, I will be coming back mid early summer (the middle of early summer), feel free to contact me on My Talkpage at Making Fiends Wiki , most-all messages here WILL NOT GET A RESPONSE. So anyway, see you this mid early summer! Hi, I'm Zimfan! Talk To me! I Am Normal. 21:05, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
Updates and Random Questions
Hey, you heard that we're holding another "Rules Conference" when school's out, right? It'll be June 20th.
By the way, you outta the doghouse yet?
Oh, another thing: Have you seen the Doctor Who TV Movie from 1996?User: Dr. Anonymous1 02:14, May 27, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, that's good... and cruelly ironic, seeing as I have just recently been grounded 'till the end of the school year. Got too much schoolwork anyway; what I wouldn't do to the people who designed our curriculum.
And yeah, I actually just saw the "Doctor Who Movie" on Youtube a while back. Not bad: My only complaints were that most of the actors were American ('cause it was set in America), and the plot was slightly predictable. But the Master really shines in his role as the main villain. Definitely one of the best versions we've seen lately. So, yeah: It's divided into 9 parts, so that your computer can load it quickly. User: Dr. Anonymous1 14:49, May 28, 2012 (UTC)
Need to Update
Hey, how do you update Community Messages? I'd like to post a new entry informing everyone about the conference on the 20th.
Where've you been lately, by the way?
Thanks, User: Dr. Anonymous1 01:50, June 8, 2012 (UTC)
Nope, I can edit it... Guess it IS in my privileges. Yay. I'll just get on it, then.
Yeah, my school's really trying to overwork us as much as possible; I have THREE final exams on Monday, two on Tuesday, and the idiots who run my school got the CLEVER idea of cutting the schedules for those days in HALF!
And maybe I should just study all weekend? Nope, can't do that: Conveniently, I now have to waste my weekend at my cousin's graduation party!! WHAT THE HECK??!!!!
So, yeah, I'm literally losing sleep and sanity over this crap, as is evidenced by this irritated tirade. Gonna light all my schoolwork on fire the minute school's out. MWA-HAH-HAH-HAH-HAAAAA!!!!!
I guess, given MY academic dilemma, I can't really blame you for the "reading list" thing. And as for the video game addiction, I can't pass judgement about dorkiness: I'm the one who just discovered Memebase.com, and can't get his nose out of it.
Incidentally, ever read "The Catcher in the Rye?"User: Dr. Anonymous1 21:37, June 8, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, tell me about it: I swear to God, after I read it, I want to slug anyone who even SAYS the word "phony."
And yeah, we DO have to read it. Unfortunately. No offense to Mr. Salinger, of course, but I just do not like that book.
Oh, by the way: The rules conference is now on the 23rd, since Zimfan has a field trip on the 20th.

Draft for Community Message
Hey, 'Livia! I haven't gotten around to updating the Community Messages, since I think you should read what I currently have. Here it is:
Hey, everybody! Before I get to the main part of this bulletin, I'd like to give a proper welcome and thank-you to our newest members: User:EllenRebecca3, User:Pokemonic, and User:Pixel guy. In addition, I'd like to welcome back Invasor ZimWiki's User:BurtBolivia. You guys have been doing a GREAT job around here, and I think y'all deserve some recognition.
And now, for the main part of this Message: For those who don't know, we will be having a Conference in the Chat on June 23rd, at 3:00 pm (New York time). Why? We will be discussing how we can add to and improve the rules of this Wiki, as they are - in their current state - a bit vague. We need users to know exactly what they can and cannot do, and what the consequences are. Y'know, stuff like that.
If anyone cannot make it on the 23rd at 3, let me know, and we'll change the date, and let everyone else know.
- User: Dr. Anonymous1 16:40, June 16, 2012 (UTC)
So, yeah, that's pretty much it. Is it good to go? User: Dr. Anonymous1 16:40, June 16, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, what's up? Sorry I haven't really talked to you in a while but, y'know, duty calls!
Heh-heh, doodie. I said doo.
But ANYway, considering that it's a mere two days before we have that "rules conference thingy", I just wanted to know if you are DEFINITELY gonna be there. (I know I might be getting a bit crazy over this, but I feel this need to be ABSOLUTELY SURE about EVERYTHING before I do something, y'know?) So, yeah, if anything's changed in yer schedule, lemme know. If not, sorry to bother ya.
Later, User: Dr. Anonymous1 16:36, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Olivia (yep, I am here.), I have a proposal for the gallery.
On the Making Fiends wiki, they have a nice look to their gallery. Here's what it looks like.http://makingfiends.wikia.com/wiki/Gallery:Super_Evil
I think it's a good idea because it would be much easier for fellow editors to add to the gallery pages, plus it resizes it for you.
Hey, what's up? User: Dr. Anonymous1 23:44, August 9, 2012 (UTC)
Issue with Cast and Crew
Hey, I just noticed that we have a MAJOR issue with the "Cast and Crew" page. For one thing, they have been separated into two separate pages, and both (particularly the "Cast" page) are HORRIBLY written. How do you suggest that we fix this problem? User: Dr. Anonymous1 15:52, August 15, 2012 (UTC)
What? Really? The problem's bigger than I thought. OK.... But should I include ALL the actors and crew members, or just the ones we have articles on? User: Dr. Anonymous1 00:09, August 16, 2012 (UTC)
OK, so I had a different idea: What if, instead of creating another page for the cast and crew to link to the "Cast & Crew" monitor on the Main Page, we use the Category Index we already have for pages that are under the category of "Cast and Crew". That seems rather more logical and efficient to me. I think the same should apply to the "Locations" monitor-link. Sound good?
Oh, and another thing: Awhile back, I proposed that we take the same "Irken Monitor link"-thing we have for Cast, Rules, etc. on the Main Page, and also use it for our associate sites instead of the banner we currently have in place. You agreed with this idea, but nothing was ever done. Are we gonna do anything with that idea?

Hey uh, Dr. Anonymous told me you might be able to help me. I was trying to upload one simple photo for a blog post I was gonna make, but it apparently overwrote a file, AND it replaced something on a user's talk page's slideshow. I need help. How can I fix this?
Related Videos Module
Hi, my name is Nic and I'm a member of the Wikia Content Development Team. As you may have seen on many wikis such as Call of Duty, there is a new module for the right hand column that displays related videos to the Wiki. This is a new feature that we want to place on your wiki, would you be cool with allowing this? The module can be seen on any page, here is an example - Wagnike2 (talk) 00:40, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
Eh? Sorry, I'm not seeing it from here. Maybe there's somethig wrog with your Browser.
By the way, in your absence I've been getting some technical tips from a User known as Czechout on the TARDIS Wiki, who's basically a Wikiformatting genius. Thanks to his help, I've managed to reprogram that "new messages" notification thingy so that, instead of it just saying "You have new messages on the ____", it says: "Incoming transmission from ____". Clever, eh?
However, I'm pretty sure that these formatting upgrades have nothing to do with your "German" predicament. Maybe you could contact Czechout; if he can't help you, nobody can.
Hm.. Must be one of those momentary glitches that come and go. Weird. And yeah, it only says "incoming transmission from ___" in the template for new messages from outside the Wiki; a different one exists for the in-Wiki notfications, which always has to start with "You have". Hence why the notification you got for this message says "You have incoming transmissions."
As for the main page, I still plan to replace the banner with the "control panel" scheme. Also, I plan on.. Well, getting it a bit more organised.
Also, you've heard me blather on about this, but we still REALLY need to improve the rules page. You know, clarify exactly what each rule means, and list the possible consequences, as well as our banning policy. Perhaps include more than just a bullet point for each rule. Y'know, that sort of thing. 'Cos we have recently been encountering a high degree of... unprofessional behaviour around here, and I think it would help if we made the rules VERY specific.
Unfortunately, we haven't had many other users to discuss this on the Talk Page. Where HAVE they all gone?!
Yeah, of course.
Well, I'll try to create a rough draft of the revised rules on the "Ways to Help the Wiki" page. I'll tell you when it's finished, and we can look over it.
In America, anyway. I am SO excited! They say this episode will actually make the Daleks frightening. All I have to say is, after those big-butted, rainbowy abominations, it's about time. Dr. Anonymous1 (talk) 20:50, August 31, 2012 (UTC)
It WAS good. I just wish we could have seen more of the really old Daleks. Small complaint, though. But I just LOVED it when that Dalek kept saying "eggs"! XD
I was also very happy to see the old bronze Daleks back in action. Still, was I the only one who cracked up when they were revealed to be the "Parliament of the Daleks"? It almost sounds like a parody of itself. I loved the new "robomen", though; and the bit with reanimated corpses - fantastic!
As for the next companion, I have no idea how she's gonna bounce back from that demise, but I hope that time's rewritten. I'll admit, I just LOVE her character! I mean, she's smart, funny, and definitely not afraid to flirt with the first person she sees. I loved her comment about nose-vs-chin fencing. Man, we haven't seen a smart-ass like that since... Well, we haven't, have we?
And yeah, I'm getting tired of Amy and Rory too. I don't hate them, but they've been going on for three seasons now. I mean, even the TENTH DOCTOR himself was starting to wear out after three seasons. Sometimes you just need to start fresh.
Speaking of which: at the end, the Daleks had their minds wiped.. Does this mean that they'll have re-learn who the Doctor is the hard way, or what? i'm curious about that.
Yeah, I never noticed that before.. Wouldn't it be weird if you were the first one who did? My main problem with the episode was that I expected it to be the Second Coming of the Daleks. I guess it was in many ways, but my expectations were WAY too high... but that's normal. I kind of expected them to include more of the classic Daleks in the Asylum, and I would have liked them to be a bit more insane. But again, expectations too high.
I liked the idea of the humans getting converted into mindless slaves of the Daleks, though. Hmm.. Wouldn't they technically be cyborg zombie soldiers? That just occurred to me.
Yeah, I think it's time for new companions, too; the current ones were pretty funny (although I wanted to strangle somebody whenever they said "Raggedy Doctor"), but I think it's REALLY time for a change.
Is it just me, or do the bronze ones look a bit different now? Not that I'm complaining.
And yeah; I guess they'll have to relearn the hard way in future episodes. Trust me, they'll be back.
Incidentally, did you know that one of the next episodes is called "The Angels Take Manhatten"? I got a challenge for you: find as many things possible that are wrong with that title. Dr. Anonymous1 (talk) 00:33, September 6, 2012 (UTC)
Blossom needs Rollback Rights
Ah, what serendipity! Thanks for showing up when you did; ZimFan and I have decided that User:Blossomofdeath has proven herself to be deserving of a promotion to Rollbacker, but neither of us can actually do so. Any chance you could promote her? Thanks.
Oh, by the way, we added the "monitor screen" thing on the Main Page for our associate sites.
Excellent! Don't worry, we're all busy sometimes; more often than not, really, with school in full swing.
Well, glad you like it; it was kind of a joint effort, truth be told; I initiated the effort, Blossom created the pictures, I put them in, and ZimFan fixed the coding so clicking on them would take you directly to the sites themselves (I swear, sometimes he seems to know more than he lets on). But enough rambling.
Yeah, I liked it too. And, as much as I wanted the Ponds to go, they really handled their departure well. A beautiful ending. I didn't like the idea that the Statue of Liberty was a Weeping Angel, though... Even less so that they didn't DO anything with it. I mean, it's just STANDING there as Amy and Rory talk about jumping. It's like it wanted to stay: "Um... Is this a bad time? Should I come back later?"
By the way, the character of Oswin won't be returning; her actress will be playing a Victorian woman named Clara.. Who, like you said, is the next companion. Yay!
Re:You have been promoted
Awesome. I'll do my best. :)
Hey, 'Livia. Sorry to bother you, but recently User:Projectgir requested a promotion to Rollbacker. I personally think he's ready: He's devoted, diligent and conscientious. However, as you know the current process of promotion requires the approval of TWO Admins and the powers of one Bureaucrat. Thus, I'm gonna need you to help me out with this promoting him.
By the way, we're currently working on re-writing the rules on this Wiki; maybe we can change the process of promotion to something more like this? http://metroid.wikia.com/wiki/Wikitroid:Requests_for_access
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
THANK YOU SO MUCH I WON'T LET YOU DOWN!20:15, October 21, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for that. He'll do well.
Well, the rules are still a work in progress, but we're getting there. Speaking f which, the link I sent you: D'you think that's a good alternative process for promotion? Dr. Anonymous1 (talk) 21:28, October 21, 2012 (UTC)
I feel kinda weird asking this, but anyway, here it goes:
I would like to be a bureaucrat on the wiki! I have helped a lot on the wiki lately, from the rules debacle (still ongoing anyway), and the current bloody gir searchers! And also, it's kinda annoying to have a promotion take a few days to process. I've been a admin here for over half a year, and I think i'm due for a promotion. So whattya say? Can I be a bureaucrat? Hi, I'm Zimfan! Talk To me! I Am Normal. 23:04, October 21, 2012 (UTC)
Aww, thanks! :-) Yes, I guess I'll take the promotion: I think I can handle the responsibility. I still recognise you as our leader, though. ;-) Hey, you're busy. I understand completely. High school at this point is getting to be a MAY-JOR pain in the arse.
Oh, by the way Olivia, I want to promote the wiki on wikia spotlight. I think we need some more editors around here. So, can I get your permission to do this? Hi, I'm Zimfan! Talk To me! I Am Normal. 00:12, October 23, 2012 (UTC)
We're all mad here. ;-)
By the way, check out this bizarre video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2GG0dHzeck&feature=youtube_gdata_player Dr. Anonymous1 (talk) 04:37, October 26, 2012 (UTC)
Team Up Proposal
Heya! CB Johnny from Operation Head Pigeons here. Wanted to say thanks to you guys for promoting us during this integral year for the fandom, I'm a big fan of the site. I want to get in touch with all of the admin for a project I'm keeping under wraps. I'll say this much: I want to involve as many big names in the Invader Zim fandom (OHP, Zim Wiki, Soapy Waffles & their newly acquired branch Invader Zim Fan Animated "Shorts",Buzzyworld, Zim tee contest winners, maybe more) and business (Mighty Fine, Invadercon, Art of Play, show crew members, maybe more) for a little project unrelated to getting the show back in production. [Edit: removed private information]
Hi Olivia. Doctor, ZimFan and I had a small talk about making Edna and Harvey wiki, where I am an administrator (therefore automatically getting permission) and Making Fiends wiki allies with this wiki. We figured it would be best to talk to you and see if you are okay with this, so here I am. Blossom | |(Converse) 01:49,11/9/2012
Basically, ZimFan (Making Fiends) and I (Edna and Harvey) want our wikis to ally with this one, but not really for the wiki's gain. I would consider it as an "extra" thing, just so that other people know that this some wiki has good relations with another wiki to be shown on the main page, and that is pretty much all there is to it. I have talked to Doc, and he suggests that we split the affiliations into two more sub-categories, one of them "related wikis", which would be the Zim related wikis, and the "allied wikis", which have an affiliation as an extra thing. Blossom | |(Converse) 01:22,11/11/2012
Hey, Olivia, you're back! Good to see you!
I'm so glad you're back, especially since have a MAJOR problem on our hands: ZimFan's little sister. She has access to ZimFan's computer and Wikia account, and she has made it her life's mission to destroy this place. Yet now, she's asking for a Wikia account! What should we do? Dr. Anonymous1 (talk) 01:14, January 1, 2013 (UTC)
Well, that's the problem: since Bureaucrats can unban themselves, we were utterly powerless to stop her from blocking as many users as she wanted. ZimFan's already changed his password, but his computer still automatically recognises him, so his little sister can just log in whenever she wants, and start the process all over again! What should we do then? Dr. Anonymous1 (talk) 01:33, January 1, 2013 (UTC)
Nope, never mind, it's too late: She has already decided to strike, and I've been unable to make her realise that this idiotic idea of getting "revenge" on her brother isn't worth ruining all of us. We'll make her pay, but till then we're gonna need someone on damage control. Any chance you could help out tonight? I gotta go to bed. Dr. Anonymous1 (talk) 02:44, January 1, 2013 (UTC)
Would you like to affiliate with the Snafu Comics Wiki? Because Zim and GIR appear as major characters, especially GIR, in Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi. Dib, Gaz and Professor Membrane also all have appeared in the comic with a somewhat large role.
