Thanks for the offer and hospitality, Mr. Viper

Thank you so much for your words of welcome into this well put together website as well as the offer to display my artwork on a budding Battlestar Galactica fansite. I am flattered by your proposal and I would be happy to participate. I do not claim on being the best fan artist out there. I don't have graphic images or fancy computer programs. All I have is a sheet of paper, colored pencils, a scanner (which is momentarily broken), and a PowerPoint program to add additional information. Regardless, I will try my best to give BSG fans what they want. I would be honored to put my art on your site.

Thank you so much for the offer. So say we all (or maybe just me).

Definitely gallery format

Mr. Viper,

Regarding your suggestions on what format to use for the Fan Art gallery, I think it should definitely be in a gallery format. Being a long time user of Wikis everywhere, I always found it easier to visually see the picture than to continuously click on an article and read look at it to see what it's like. Please advise.

DeviantArt Notice

Dear Mr. Viper (I think that's going to be your new nickname if I may be so bold),

I will definitely spread the word to other BSG Deviants. The only reason I haven't been posting art is (this is humiliating) I forgot how to upload images.

Incompetently yours, Forestbender

You're gonna be happy with me, Mr. Viper

Dear Mr. Viper,

As you have told me, I have started to direct Deviants to BSP. I haven't just directed, I've downright recruited. I already have at least five incredibly gifted artists who have agreed to let us use their pictures. However, one of them asked if this is good for college credit. Is it? Please contact me ASAP.

BSP

Mr. Viper,

I have a good idea. Really good idea.

You know how on the character pages in BSW, they give all this info on the colony, the job, the birth name, etc. of the character. What if we used that same format for the users of BSP? See my user page to get the idea of what I'm talking about.

If you like it, submit your own. I can't wait to see what colony you're from.

-Forestbender

While we could add "Colony" to the User Data template, I'm not sure how frequently it'd get filled out. I'm not terribly proud of my birth colony (based on my birthdate) of Aquaria, seeing as how badly our team got stomped by the Picon Panthers last season. Though if people did want to fill in that kind of information, using the Character Data template like you did is the perfect way to do it, in my opinion. --Steelviper 15:36, 22 March 2008 (CDT)

Idea for the header. :) Shane (talk) 16:07, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Oh. The random images. OK. I'll get right on that. --Steelviper 08:26, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Battlestar Galacticast

Not sure if you were already aware, but Tricia began a podcast called "Battlestar Galacticast" that may be worth exploring. I've only begun listening to it, but it looks very promising for new nuggets of information. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 21:57, 22 May 2019 (PDT)

Age

Nice to see some new activity on the wiki. Particularly I was amused by you updating your age for the first time in a decade. Did you know that we have a template to calculate age so that you don't need to manually keep updating it? {{age|yyyy|mm|dd}} --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 05:15, 24 May 2019 (PDT)
