Hello there! Welcome to Alien Species Wiki! We here are very happy that you are joining our wiki! We have a wide variety of things for you to explore, and hopefully you will become one of our regular contributors. A good place to start is here:

We know that's a lot to handle, but don't worry, if you require any assistance one of our admins will be happy to help you! Have fun!

WelcomeEdit

Hi, welcome to Alien Species! Thanks for your edit to the File:Rachni drone.jpg page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Owen1983 (Talk) 20:19, May 9, 2011

Hey man! Glad to see a new user here, helping out. My I ask just how you found this wiki and what your opinions are of it? Just curious is all. Nexus12: Because pure dominance isn't enough {ENSIGN} 20:16, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Awesome! I, personally, love Mass effect 2, and plan to buy the third when it comes out. I hope you stick around, you seem like a nice person! Nexus12: Because pure dominance isn't enough {ENSIGN} 20:26, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Would you like to be a patroller? Edit

I'm thinking of nominating you for a patroller position, due to your activity levels. My question is, would you like to be one? Nexus12: Because pure dominance isn't enough {ENSIGN} 20:44, May 12, 2011 (UTC)

I'd like that. I can patrol, but i'm not sure if i'd be right for dealing with vandalism... Holbenilord 12:50, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

You wouldn't have to deal with problem users if you wouldn't want to. When you see vandalism, you can either undo it, or report it to an admin like Owen. In fact, the title patroller only requires that you,

  • Patrol edits.
  • Revert edits.
  • Housekeep. (Which you already do, as I can see).

So how about it? Want me to nominate you for patroller? Nexus12: Because pure dominance isn't enough {ENSIGN} 19:52, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good! I would like a nomination. Holbenilord 20:16, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Just nominated you! If you get the chance, please be sure to vote on my RfA too! Cheers, Nexus12: Because pure dominance isn't enough {ENSIGN} 21:10, May 13, 2011 (UTC)

Just a few things Edit

vandalism

  • the easiest way to patrol is through the activity feed beside each page there is a paper icon this is the recent history newest edit is on the right and the oldest is on the left and you can revert bad edit by pressing undo then publish. Another way is through the page history and this will show the complete history for that page and the previous page will be shown but you have to save the page I think I have covered everything if you still need help ask me or Nexus12

non wiki styles Edit

Articles should be written in the wikis Manual of style --Owen1983 17:16, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Edit

Thanks for ignoring that vandal. His pleas are of a desperate nature, and ignoring him is the best thing we can do. (Other than blocking him of course). Nexus12: Because pure dominance isn't enough {ENSIGN} 19:38, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Any time. I googled his IP- he has a pretty bad record... and apparently he's working from school. Holbenilord 19:46, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah? That's interesting. Working from school? That would explain how he's using a "different i.p. address than normal. How'd you get that info? And any connection to wikitroid? I'm greatly interested in this subject because the vandal attacked me, and I wish to bring him/her to justice. Nexus12: Because pure dominance isn't enough {ENSIGN} 19:50, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

I just googled the IP 206.172.6.34 , the one he was using. Most results are userpages with mods telling him not to create nonsense articles. Holbenilord 19:55, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Nexus12: Because pure dominance isn't enough {ENSIGN} 19:56, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, can you do me a favor? When you get around to it, it would be great to have your opinion on the amendment I just suggested here thanks! Nexus12: Because pure dominance isn't enough {ENSIGN} 21:45, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Hello Edit

Hi, I'm Soulslayer317 who made some species for my original work and thanks for some corrections on the Sha'dahls hopefully to chat with you another time

Hey, welcome! I'd be glad to chat. Holbenilord 14:06, June 7, 2011 (UTC)

Help with a wiki Edit

Well if you like maybe you could help me with a protot-type wiki I'm working on and hlep with some corrections. I'll do the Sha'dahl but the rest you can check out, http://babylonpedia.wikia.com/wiki/BabylonGate_Wiki

Ah, well, i'd like to, but i'm not really very good with B5 lore- i've only seen a few episodes and that kind of thing. Holbenilord 14:26, June 7, 2011 (UTC)

No its not related to B5 its very much different from the series.

Oh, right! I'll have to research it. Holbenilord 14:32, June 7, 2011 (UTC)

Oops... Edit

Sorry, man, I think between renaming the Saturnyne page and editing it I accidentally removed some of the edits you had done there. I see you've put them back, so it's all fine now, I just wanted you to know that it was my mistake :- ) BlueFrackle 15:39, June 8, 2011 (UTC)

Ha, no worries. All fixed! :) Holbenilord 15:41, June 8, 2011 (UTC)

Hey thanks for adding categories on the Gubru page, and I think you'll have to do the same for the Hoon page as well. See, the trouble is, I'm stuck editing in monobook and I'm not quite sure how to add categories in monobook. It's sort of pathetic actually :/ Insurgence: Like the Phoenix I rise again! {ADMIN} 21:06, June 8, 2011 (UTC)

He's in the wrong here, not you. I just feel it fair to give you a warning. I am impressed by your ability to stay calm in the face of his taunts, but it was only a catuionary warning. Sometimes debates can spiral out of control. So no threat to you or anything, and certainly not a pre-block warning. More cautionary. :) Insurgence: Like the Phoenix I rise again! 19:14, June 15, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, I reviewed the situation with Werebereus. You weren't in the wrong. I just saw so many messages, but you actually kept your head. Sorry for issuing you a warning, my bad :P Insurgence: Like the Phoenix I rise again! 20:39, June 18, 2011 (UTC)

Multiverses wiki Edit

Hey Holbenilord. You may or may not be familiar with User:Pinguinus, but he has asked me if his wiki, Multiverses wiki, could become a sister wiki of ASW. You could almost think of it as another Alien Fanon Wiki, but unlike Alien Fanon Wiki, it is beginning to show more and more activity. I support him, but I certainly cannot make a decision on my own. I'm sending this messagee to all current members of the ASPF and hope that each of you can get back to me as quickly as possible. Thanks, Insurgence: Like the Phoenix I rise again! 21:01, June 18, 2011 (UTC)

Pretty much anything is allowed in that contest, besides the usual stuff like vulgarity and whatnot. It could be sapient, non-sapient, multicellular, single-celled, or anything else you can think of. You can enter whatever you like. Pinguinus 12:09, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

I've started an RfC for Multiverses. After Pinguinus has answered the questions, please vote. Thanks, Insurgence: Like the Phoenix I rise again! 18:06, June 19, 2011 (UTC)

Would you like a promotion?Edit

Hey HL, I'd like you to consider taking the open Ensign position that the ASPF has. You are a very dedicated editor, and I think the use of a rollback button would assist you in your constant vigil of our wiki. I'm willing to nominate you if you would like me to. I think you would be a good Ensign, seeing your activity levels and all. Anyway, think on it and get back to me as soon as possible! Regards, Insurgence: Like the Phoenix I rise again! 18:18, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

wikias new look Edit

I am beginning a trail of the new editor as its in beta the wiki will be on it for 24hrs this f we have any issues we can revert back to the new look. --Owen1983 21:52, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Vandal Edit

There's a vandal here; look at the revision history of Pandora or Na'vi. He or she replaced all contact with cuss words. Just thought I should report this. They could strike again. Pinguinus 03:37, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Predalien Edit

I have banned the IP responsible for the vandalism. --Owen1983 14:46, July 28, 2011 (UTC)

My two months of penance Edit

As per the title I will be taking two months off wikia for a debt. Please keep a watch on ASW in my stead. Thanks. Lord Phoenix at your service 19:34, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

New Vandal Edit

As you certainly already know, Lovid vandalized the Owriss page. I have considered a block, though I thought it would be wise to get the opinions of others before I act. I'm not a particular fan of vandals. They've only contributed today out of ever, so I am also considering keeping a close watch on them and the minute I notice another vandalism, to ban them at that point. Warning should certainly be in order, for this first offense, as well, but wanted a clear banning statement to go by alongside the warning. -- Somarinoa 16:30, November 4, 2011 (UTC)

I see you left a comment on our page. Well no its not a fan thing. My friends an i think its real, and everything i put down is true.

Admin Edit

Your a good editor with good standing your an ideal candidate

Promotion Edit

You've been given administrative and rollback status as requested. I'd normally say something fancy here, but I'm trying to cram 6 months of work into 2 weeks - so you'll have to forgive me on that one. I know you will serve us here at the wikia well. Good luck out there! -- Somarinoa 18:33, December 15, 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations Edit

I am looking forward to working with you --Owen1983 18:29, December 20, 2011 (UTC)

I'm just surprised it took this long! Congratulations. Lord Phoenix at your service 15:42, January 10, 2012 (UTC)

Current Policy Decision's Current Definition Edit

Well, the current idea is to actually simply make sure everything is simply PG-13 as opposed to actually deleting articles, since there's a big gray area amongst what could be considered smut and the fact that deleting articles as such would mean that the wikia would always remain incomplete. -- Somarinoa 20:06, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Article CommentsEdit

Hello Hol, as a member of the ASPF it is required that you vote on the recent policy vote happening when you get the chance. Both BlueFrackle and I have made our points for and against respectively here and [User blog:Insurgence/Article Comments -- Yes or no|here]]. Thanks. Lord Phoenix at your service 02:32, February 5, 2012 (UTC)

xenomorphs Edit

When I first read the article i was confused also so i had a wird with the editor I am also assuming good faith because these users are probably new to wikia and don't no how we do things. --Owen1983 20:12, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

Another policy amendment?Edit

Just throwing this out there for comment, I was thinking of suggesting another amendment that would put a timeline on ASPF requests. Since right now they just go on forgotten until someone remembers them. Please feel free to add anything, as this is just a rough idea. Lord Phoenix at your service 02:44, February 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hi! Edit

Hello, Holbenilord. Would I be correct in assuming that I'm speaking to a fellow Whovian?

User: Dr. Anonymous1 23:59, February 17, 2012 (UTC)

Needs- Upgrading Edit

Hey, thoug you might wanna take a look at the Cybermen page; not only does it need a huge cleanup (Inge form of a complete rewriting), but it also needs a new infobox page; since the Cybermen seen in Closing Time were the original CyberMondasians from the old series, that picture of men in silver scuba-suits is now woefully outdated. I would advise rewriting it so that the page looks more like its TARDISWiki counterpart. Thought you might want to know this, as it is a rather large discrepancy.

Thanks, User: Dr. Anonymous1 17:09, February 19, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Hol, long time no see. How's Multiverses doing? No more conflict I hope? Insurgence: Speak! 20:52, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

Did the wiki enter an equilibrium between science and fantasy or does science still reign as it (arguably) should? Insurgence: Speak! 22:50, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

I always thought you would be better to direct the wiki anyway, you and the others have been there since the beginning. And you have a knack for it. Anyway it's good to talk to you again, thanks for not neglecting ASW! Insurgence: Speak! 21:09, March 7, 2012 (UTC)

Dantescifi Edit

While I appreciate all the species he have been adding up (though he's only copy-pasting, which I could have been doing all this time too...but that's alright, I suppose; we really should at least have the articles, right?), his activity has become suspicious to me, and I've been keeping an eye on him. Since he hasn't been adding images to his innumerable Wookieepedia articles that would otherwise possess them, I was taking the liberty of adding a few of them myself when I noticed he created some, but in the process noticing that a number of the pages he has been adding do not exist on Wookieepedia at all. The numbers are becoming staggering and honestly, I severely doubt that the Star Wars community would overlook so many species. The fact that so many of his articles also list them as looking "identical to <such and such other race>" is also strange and highly suspect, as what writer of official fiction would do this so often? Wouldn't they simply use the existing races instead of making up some random "identical to another" race? Star Wars has thousands of races, sapient, non-sapient and semi-sapient. I think they could find a race to suit their needs.

The thing that made me truly suspicious however was when I posted up my questioning as to what books these species came from or if they happened to be fanon, Dantescifi deleted every instance of me creating talk pages about it, and then refused to respond to his own talk page. That is not a natural reaction unless someone is trying to hide something.

I have come to the conclusion that a large number of his articles are in fact fanon, and he is abusing the wiki for his own monumental achievement gain. I suggest a hearing between the admins to figure out what to do about his actions. In the end, temporarily blocking or even permabanning him does not take too much away from us - I can easily copypasta like 10-50 Wookieepedia articles a day myself; I just prefer to rewrite all the information I come across, which generally takes time per article and usually leads to me adding far fewer articles than I otherwise could be contributing. It should be noted that there is a second Star Wars wiki that I know of - The Old Republic Wiki. I have not checked this site for his adds yet to see if they may have made their first appearance in that game, though I highly doubt it to be true that they did (though I do know one fan created species does appear in Old Republic). I will begin compiling a list of species he has added that I cannot find on Wookieepedia or Old Republic Wiki, and create a blog about it so it's easier for everyone to access. Keep me and the others posted on thoughts or ideas. -- Somarinoa 15:08, April 6, 2012 (UTC)

R'lyeh Edit

All the elements combine, the impossible

Also Ping is going to kill you now QE 13:24, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

I'm back! Edit

Hello fellow ASW crewmembers! I'd like to deeply apologize for my five months absence here, caused by combination of computer problems and lack of free time. I see you have done some amazing work, ASW is looking better than ever. I realize that it was very irresponsible of my part to stay away for so long. But I'm back now and planning to stay! I've just created pages for the Levanians, Selenites, Sensorites and a couple of others. I'll do my best to add at least one new species every week from now on. -- BlueFrackle (talk) 19:57, August 13, 2012 (UTC)
