    So, I've noticed a number of articles over the last few months that have been obviously copy+pasted to this wikia. This is especially obvious when the articles have the various remaining artifacts from references, aka the "[4]", et cetera pieces -- an example of this would be the Sluis Van page, which I left as-is as an example for now.

    Now, not only are these unsightly, and kind of lazy to leave in, but we had an issue with ESW a while back about people here just copying pages they find on other wikis instead of rewriting the information again outright like really, they ought to be doing (if we could just copy and paste, I'd be adding 26+ pages a day… yes, really). We also have had a big problem with people coming in and "adding" pages but l…

    Evil Twin

    March 15, 2014 by Somarinoa

    I noticed this morning that I had an email in my inbox offering me a temporary code for having forgotten my wiki password. The thing is, it isn't something I would forget. This means someone, somewhere is apparently attempting to hack into my account. I wanted to inform the community in case I do anything out of the ordinary. At the same time, however, my computer finally kicked the bucket a couple days ago, and this means I will be doing all of my editing either from my phone (which sucks for editing and will likely only be on my user pages) and the work computer (which I can make larger edits but is more risky and will still not allow image uploads of any sort). So if I am somehow making major edits in the next couple days, it ought…

    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 …

    New templates?

    November 18, 2012 by Somarinoa

    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.

    • Universe
    • Homeworld
    • Sapience
    • Lifespan
    • Diet
    • Status (for extant, extinct, critically endangered, data deficient, etc)
    • Appearances

    New Fanon Sister Site

    August 19, 2012 by Somarinoa

    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) …
