Man, it's been a while since I wrote a blog on here, huh?
Posting to let everyone know that I have lately been purchasing apps on my newly-upgraded Android phone, and have been focusing primarily on games that have aliens in them. A primary reason for this of course is to support us here at ASW (my apparent lack of participation has far more to do with a load of adult responsibilities than it has to do with lack of enthusiasm for us here).
While the primary app I downloaded was Star Wars: Tiny Death Star (which really won't serve any purpose here at all), I do have others such as A Space Shooter For Free! and Star Command which I will be working on adding here to ASW; unfortunately I don't know how to take screenshots from my phone to use here so …Read more >
Help Create The Riddick Alien Survival Challenge Quiz!
How would you fare against hordes of extraterrestrial beasts in a barren alien wasteland? Wikia wants to know and we'd like YOUR HELP coming up with questions for a quiz. We want the final results to be "Alien Fodder", "Alien Slave Mind", "The Turncoat", "Survivor", and "Resistance Leader" -- make sure your question has an answer related to each result.

First of, I have written this post partially to try to create a place to settle down the recent controversy over "Alternative Forms of Life", so we no longer have to jump over between several user talk pages and category talk pages, and I also think putting it in blog form might help bringing in more opinions on the whole matter.
Thing is: I have recently brought back Category:Alternative Forms of Life (because it had dozens of pages and I saw it as a nice, useful category), which had been previously deleted. I never thought there would be so much controversy about it, but it ended up spawning some. Points against it have been raised: specifically, that it's impractical, highly anthropocentric, hard-to-define, highly anthropocentric, incorr…Read more >

This blog is intended for the Administrators and Bureaucrats of ASW.
While I was perusing the various IP blocks we have here, I noticed a trend to block IP's for either infinite, or for an inhumanly long time (until 2111, for example.)
I feel it must be reminded that all users first deserve a warning, and then a temporary block. (3-5 days). If they are just petty vandals, they will probably not come back after that. If they do, and continue to vandalize, a longer sentence should be put in place. (2-3 weeks, depending on severity of actions.)
One thing we should never do though, is outright ban an IP from editing this wiki, forever. It is potentially detrimental to people who may get that IP in the future and may wish to edit here, or people …

The Predators are the primary alien antagonists of the Predator film series, they are a race of hunters that continuously seek human and other exotic prey both sapient and non-sapient.
In the various non-film media the Predator have been portrayed in a number of different ways, they are typically called the Yautja (e-wat-ya) in expanded material and the term has generally been accepted by fans and writers of the material.
However in two of the DH Press predator books, starting with Predator: Forever Midnight they are portrayed as the Hish-qu-Ten (Abbreviated as Hish), with seemingly no attempt to even loosely connect them with previous versions of the species.
Predators are physically distinguished from humans by their greater height, arthropod-like m…

Once when I was younger I use to wonder if we were alone in the universe. I was 10 yrs. old at the time and I can remember looking up at the stars and envisioning a giant UFO, all the stars connected forming a huge craft. The musings of my mind soon diminished as I went on to highschool and then college. There I met a clairvoyant who told me I was meant for something greater than the job I had bartending. She said I was suppose to move WEst and find a Guru. Two years later I found myself on the road headed to California from Wisconsin. There I started taking yoga classes from a lady named Lola and soon became interested in esoteric philosophy. I was interested in modeling and sent some of my photos I had recently taken to a couple o…Read more >

How do we handle plants . . .
both the words "flora" and "plants" are technically incorrect.
Do you put non-sapient plants in the "non-sapient species" category? As there are both sapient, and non-sapient plants . . . .
I say we use the term "flora" - _ - and then categorize the species by sapience . . .
but that is confusing as heck, because then we will have a bunch of plants in non-sapient species . . . .
and this all applies to microscopic organisms as well :I

Since my ideas about Featured Articles seem to have been well-received, I went ahead and created Template:FA for us to put on the talk page of articles we'd like to nominate.
Already nominated Ralok's suggestions (Hokita and Remulakian) plus the following articles: Anunnaki, Cardassian, Dalek, Elder Thing, Felucian, Geth, Grox, Kryptonian, Long One, Mala'kak, Martian (Looney Tunes), Martian (Ray Bradbury), Melmacian, Mesklinite, Metroid, Necromorph, Pak'ma'ra, Prawn, Soft One, Species (Alien Species), Tenctonese, The Thing, Weeping Angel, Xenomorph and Yautja.
These are the wiki's best articles IMO, but if you disagree feel free to contest them. Also, please nominate more articles if I forgot some which also deserve FA status!Read more >
For years, I've been utilizing code on here to create new infoboxes to include info not found in current templates; however, I am thinking about creating some new templates for us to use, similar to this or this. Do any of you have any opinions on what should and shouldn't be included? I'm thinking it'd go something like the following:
Any of the statistic options not filled out won't appear on that particular list, so you won't have a bunch of blank options.
- Status (for extant, extinct, critically endangered, data deficient, etc)
Any of the statistic options not filled out won't appear on that particular list, so you won't have a bunch of blank options.

For quite some time now (and I mean it, it's been more than a year) we've had the same "featured article" in our Main Page, the Moorwen.
Before that, I remember we went through a few others that were chosen by votation every month, but that system was sort of unofficially dropped because almost nobody voted. And before that, I remember we had a list of "featured articles" which were chosen arbitrarily.
I believe it's time for another change, and I got a proposal. Between having a list and having a new article every month, I prefer the list, so we won't have to chose something new all the time. But instead of a list, it should be far more interesting as a gallery. And of course electing the featured articles by voting is far preferable than c…Read more >

I have found a new method of sorting Species by trait without overwhelming the pages with categories.
by including thet
code on the category pages . . . . they will not appear on the actual page.
Thus we will be able to sort through five fingered species, without the category "five fignered" appearing on each page, or red colored species, or various otehr traits . . .
The question is . . . is whether we should do this or not
you can see an example of this here

I dont know if this is a good idea yet, so I think it should be discussed.
I am creating this blog to discuss what I think is appropriate content for this wiki, as there seems to be some dispute over it. First and foremost I think that this places is a place for . . . alien species! But it is a place for other things as well.
This is obvious, this is a place for any and all species alien to this universe. That is to say something unknown in our world, it could be a species or being from any science fiction or fantasy universe, even if that universe is defined solely by the presence of this single aspect.
This includes species sapient, non-sapient, floral, fungal, anything and everything.
All alien technology should be allowed in my opinion, as these are things that are differing from our reality. However I do not th…

So, because Alien Fanon stopped accepting non-AVP content as of...July I believe it was, and because I wanted us at ASW to have control over the new sister site so that we don't have to worry about a repeat occurrence of our placing information taken off this site no longer being allowed there at some time in the future, I have created a new fanon sister site for us to use: Extraterrestrial Fanon Wiki.
I expect to start moving fanon info there soon, and you're more than welcome to start doing so immediately. Any of you admins here, if you want administrator status over there as well let me know and I'll make it happen. We should also probably affiliate with it on our front page here on ASW. — Somarinoa (talk) 02:34, August 19, 2012 (UTC) …Read more >

Here is a list of articles created—presumably all by 188.8.131.52—that have absolutely no information on them, and are simply "blank pages". If any of you have the time or the knowledge (or the search engine skills) to fill some of these out for us (I will be doing so some but I also have other engagements) that'd be great. Keep in mind that the info should simply be added, as opposed to the pages just being deleted. I have taken care of the articles I found in my preliminary search that did not need to exist (which almost included the weapons but I thought, meh, what the hey). Categories should exist on each page which will aid in obtaining the information on each. For the weapons however, you can add from numerous sources (for instan…Read more >

184.108.40.206 added a few "image placeholders" to some of the alien species galleries—specifically to AL, KI and RI. These additions are "Alien Bears", "Kisshu/Kish" and "Rick the Platypus". Now, I have no idea what the first two are but I can state that Rick the Platypus is a character from My Gym Partner's a Monkey, episode 33 entitled "That Darn Platypus". That makes my assumption that the other two may be actual species as well though I don't know what from. Any help in obtaining images and information for these species would be, of course, greatly appreciated. — Somarinoa 06:43, June 18, 2012 (UTC)Read more >

The birth of the two infants, Lisa and Arnold Shin to their human "Father" Griswold Shin. Father is single and having to raise the two children on his own.
It is too early to tell how they will develop at this moment. Both children are more or less identical, they both resemble the alien father rather than the human father.
They have shrunken noses, black eyes, and black eyebrows with no significant hair growth as of yet (the alien father had no head hair).
Both infants have wants and needs identical to that of a typical sim infant, if this holds true they will become toddlers during their third day of life.
When transitioned to toddlers the two children grew hair, individual facial traits became more apparent.

I will be studying the pregnant male sim, the subject in question is one "Griswold Shin" a sim of my own creation. Little manipulation was used in triggering the pregnancy.

- Eye Color: Blue

The categories here seem to be ill-thought out for the scope of the project . . . I suggest a complete restructuring of the categories.
It needs to be planned though, there is going to be a loooooooooot of grunt work involved in reformatting the categories of 5000 pages, of course I have the time to do so o _ o
There needs to be four over-categories, one for technology, worlds, sapient species, and non-sapient species. A basic overview of what I think it should be I am going to put here, but I think a lot more discussion needs to be put into the idea of a radical reformation such as this.
- Habitable Planets
- (various third-tear sub-categories based on broad environmental assessments)
- Uninhabitable Planets
- Habitable Planets
- Habitable Moons

- I have decided to re-blog my blog from the prey wiki, this blog concerns the many races of the "Prey Universe", as prey 2 has not been released the names of many of these races are simply placeholders'
Well, prey has undergone a radical shift in structure. It is no longer a universe formatted like doom, resistence, or red faction. No longer does a single enemy sit upon a pedestle of wrong, and a single force stand for good. Normally a reformmatting like this would hurt the universe (ask red faction about when it added aliens) . . . . but . . . In prey, stated that other races and worlds existed out there. There was enough little things to indicate that this type of system could exist, and now it looks completely awesome.

IP address 220.127.116.11 has been adding pages without information. While that isn't against policy or anything as far as I can recall, these completely blank could get easily lost amongst all the other pages if we don't get on adding at least some information to them, which for one will diminish our overall professionalism. If you are looking for pages to add info on, I suggest checking out their contribution page and adding info as well as images to the various pages (though you should check the alien species galleries just in case images for the species already exist). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dantescifi thinks he's...funny, or something. He added a bunch of Star Wars images - some of which we already have - but the thing is, he added MASSIVE amounts of white to each.

I am not an idiot. I have an IQ only 16 points under Einstein and I am a significant Star Wars fan. You're not pulling any wool over my eyes here, buddy.
It's entirely possible that they were attempting to add images without saving original images to the drive by using screen captures and MS Paint, though it seems unlikely due to the violations of species names and designs that don't norma…Read more >
