Fanfic

(I hope I'm doing this right.) I got your message about a fanfic article on my user page and thank you for the invitation to discuss it over here. Although I don't know when I'd be able to write something up, I would be interested in putting together a fanfic article, if you think there's enough interest here for such a beast. I'm so new to all this, though, that I probably will need help... (On the bright side, I did figure out how to do a header on this entry, all by myself. Hee.) Sabaceanbabe 15:56, 6 April 2006 (CDT)

You did just fine! I often append new conversations to the bottom of a page, but there are others that prefer to be at the top of the stack. I live out of the Recent Changes page and diffs, so I should be able to find it either way. Creating the article is as simple as "searching" for a topic that doesn't exist, and clicking the "create this article" link on the resulting page. In this case Fan fiction might be an appropriate article name, as a page with that name exists over at Memory-alpha. (I am nothing if not a pattern-follower.) I may go ahead and "click the red link" and get the page created, since I know that can be a scary process when you're not used to it. Whenever you're ready, feel free to start in on it. --Steelviper 16:05, 6 April 2006 (CDT)
A) Yeah to create new articles, i.e. "Frodo", you would type "Frodo" into the search bar, it would say that a page of that name doesn't exist, along with a red linke saying you may "creat this article", click on that, then "edit" the blank page (just as you click "edit" to post on any page, such as you did for this one) and type your info. We'll help you along with the particulars later.
B)I see nothing wrong with copying from MemoryAlpha, I've been bringing this up more lately, but I really base alot of BSGwiki stuff on MemoryAlpha. Entries for the battles series, and so forth. They've already established and worked the kinks out of a lot of this, so I usually try to "reverse-engineer" things to do for BattlestarWiki by examining Memory Alpha. --The Merovingian (C - E) 17:17, 6 April 2006 (CDT)

Deleted images

I see you deleted quite a few images the other day (March 31), but you deletet quite a few that were being linked to. Heavy Raider and Basestar. While not directly embedded into the wiki they were used as links and should either be restored, or the links to the images removed.--Mercifull 06:29, 3 April 2006 (CDT)

Sigh. My bad. It is exceedingly difficult to determine that images being linked in that way are being used, since they don't register in the "what links here" and they end up in the "unused files" report (which is what I was cleaning up). I tried restoring the images, but it appeared to only restore the text. I guess for now I'll remove the dead links, but you might post to the talk page and see if people interested in those articles miss those images. I apologize for trampling over your images in my "cleaning rampage". I did not intend to delete the linked images. Perhaps a short term hack for getting them off of the "unused files" would be to post thumbnails to the talk page. --Steelviper 07:35, 3 April 2006 (CDT)
No problem, i re-uploaded the images and thumbed them in the talk page explaining why.--Mercifull 07:51, 3 April 2006 (CDT)
The best thing to do would to note what pages link to the images on the image's own description page. -- Joe Beaudoin 13:45, 3 April 2006 (CDT)
Would that keep them off of the Special:Unusedimages? I guess that's not a big deal (if they show up on there), but it is an easier list to work if it's kept small. --Steelviper 13:48, 3 April 2006 (CDT)
Unfortunately, no. If we wanted to keep them off Special:Unusedimages, then thumbing them on the talk page of the article that links to the images would do the trick. -- Joe Beaudoin 13:50, 3 April 2006 (CDT)

Vandals

That was a pretty good reaction time; from when he came to when he was banned, he lasted under 5 minutes. Hope that motivates him to move on to greener pastures. --The Merovingian (C - E) 14:48, 17 April 2006 (CDT)

Thanks for the alert. In the future, drop me a message on my talk to fire off an email on the off-chance I'm not haunting the RC, or on the admin noticeboard for a more general alert. I liked their message about how "delicate" their vandalism was... --Steelviper 14:51, 17 April 2006 (CDT)
Yeah, that was a bit much. Thanks for catching that one so fast. --April Arcus 21:25, 17 April 2006 (CDT)
I was a bit slow on that one, although I re-nuked him, just to be sure. No amount of hull plating will let him survive THAT one. One thing worries me. Those numbers of the user name are sequential. Someone may be using an automated bot to create accounts. Is there a human-readable-only thing that Joe could add to require humans to create accounts? --Spencerian 16:47, 17 April 2006 (CDT)
It's been suggested. --CalculatinAvatar 22:12, 17 April 2006 (CDT)

Help with Koenigrules

Steelviper, as you are another registered user of the official site, and I'm not always the most tactful, can you make an official announcement of our blacklisting of Koenigrules and HollyWoodNorthReport? If you are uneasy about posting it yourself, can you PM it to my account there.

Shaun, from Subject2Discussion, heard about my stance against Koenigrules on HangarDeck5, and e-mailed me back complaining that A) I wanted to "rip into" Koenigrules B)"recalling it was YOU, Merovingian, that Ron Moore was talking about in regards to massive spoilers." As a result, I will *NOT* be appearing on his show, he said.

I replied back to Shaun, telling him that B) That doesn't make sense: I've never spread massive spoilers: if he means the season 2 finale spoiler warning, that was against "TheDigitalAlchemist" a poster on the official messageboards who openly admits that he spread the spoilers---->I mean, he started a thread, using his normal user name, which was filled with spoiler screencaps from the finale. And he's proud of this and will admit it to anyone. If Shaun meant "recent spoiler complaints Ron has had".....all of the recent season THREE spoilers have originated with KoenigRules. So I honestly don't know why Shaun would think that.

As for "A" I told Shaun that yes, I want to in a professional manner "rip into" Koenigrules....because his behavior has been so appalling, and has abused our trust so much, that he deserves to be exposed. ---->I told Shaun that I hope he would reconsider, because we have all here already agreed on BSWiki to blacklist KoenigRules, and I really, really felt that the right thing to do is to go onto Shaun's show to explain to both him and his listeners why we felt we had to do it. ---->I also urged Shaun to read our eveidence against Koenigrules, posted on BattlestarWiki (I don't think he saw it yet).

I hope Shaun gives up the benefit of the doubt: I think we're really trying to help him, by pointing out this breach of trust to him, and by wanting to contact him personally via phone instead of just doing it.

Well, it could use your writing expertise SteelViper. --The Merovingian (C - E) 00:30, 22 April 2006 (CDT)

We haven't blacklisted anybody yet. Please wait for the vote to conclude. For my part, I'd really prefer you try to avoid attacking anybody, regardless of how justified you may feel. The truth will come out on its own. --April Arcus 02:53, 22 April 2006 (CDT)
Indeed. But word gets out about this, we've got the vote displayed prominently, I think we should make up an announcement while we're waiting and I also think it wouldn't be best if I made it. I think someone else could do a better job than me. --The Merovingian (C - E) 02:58, 22 April 2006 (CDT)
The vote is displayed quite prominently. We already have more turnout than for any other vote on the wiki, with four days before it closes. Further evangelism on anyone's part would strike me as axe-grinding. --April Arcus 03:01, 22 April 2006 (CDT)
Oh no I didn't mean evangelism for a vote, I mean to explain the results to people once its finished. I think an explanation I gave wouldn't be good, and I think someone else could summarize the points better, that's all. --The Merovingian (C - E) 03:10, 22 April 2006 (CDT)
We could collaboratively develop an official statement. I think that might lead to a balanced viewpoint, and would be fitting with the overall theme of the wiki. (Not that we should take too long, or get bogged down in committees and such). --Steelviper 08:44, 22 April 2006 (CDT)
Excellent thought. Sorry for misunderstanding you above, Merv. --April Arcus 13:30, 22 April 2006 (CDT)
KR already found out about this, surprise surprise this is an open content site, and is furious on the official messageboards and just berating everyone who doubts him. Although I've mentioned he's in the process of being blacklisted, I have not official made a thread announcing "BattlestarWiki has blacklisted Koenigrules" and this is what I meant: someone else should do that, and someone else should write that, so it is as balanced as it can be. --The Merovingian (C - E) 14:08, 22 April 2006 (CDT)
Now this I must see... --Shane (T - C - E) 14:14, 22 April 2006 (CDT)
Ok. How about something like this:
"Consensus ({link to the vote}) at Battlestar Wiki (www.battlestarwiki.org) has determined that effective {END OF VOTING} KR ({link to KR}) and HNR ({link to HNR}) are not to be considered acceptable sources for the purposes of citing information. This policy is effective indefinitely, until such time that consensus determines that the afformentioned entities become reliable primary sources of information. The measure it taken for the purpose of protecting the credibility and accuracy of Battlestar Wiki.
So say we all."
Part of me is loathe to make an announcement of what is, essentially, an internal matter, but if we do say anything it should be concise and accurate (like we strive for everything else here to be). --Steelviper 17:58, 22 April 2006 (CDT)
On further thought, I agree - a formal statement seems a bit much. I think a note on the "unacceptable sources" section of the Citation Jihad and a link to the vote would be adequate.
As for HNR, since they actually cite their sources, including KR when they use him, I don't think that this ruling needs to extend to them. Since they don't claim to be a primary source, there should never be a reason to link to them anyway. --April Arcus 18:12, 22 April 2006 (CDT)

Prism Card

Got one from my sister's old laptop. Also using my sister's old laptop with Backtrack (SLAX) right on the hard drive. --Shane (T - C - E) 22:00, 20 May 2006 (CDT)

Sweet. --Steelviper 07:29, 21 May 2006 (CDT)

Fanart

SV, you said you'd send me a preview of the fanart thing with me in it; I said I didn't get the preview you e-mailed me; that didn't mean I didn't want to check it out or be in it, I just wanted you to try to send it again; did you have a pic of me originally lined up for that ad thing you made, which you removed because I didn't respond, thus causing you to think I didn't want to? The thing you made now looks great, yeah I'd like to be in that :) (based on your "persimmons" comment on my talk page, I'm assuming you had an original with me in it) THanks. --The Merovingian (C - E) 09:38, 26 May 2006 (CDT)

Periodically Updated Thought

I like your most recent one. The Maud'Dib one. Such good books. It made me think to mention that I like the fact that you have it up at all. --Day (Talk - Admin) 21:28, 5 June 2006 (CDT)

People read those!? Cool. Thanks.--Steelviper 07:36, 6 June 2006 (CDT)

Margaret Edmonson/Margaret Edmondson

While it is great that we have confirmation of the correct name now and I spend a little bit of time earlier changing all the references I feel that we should keep Margaret Edmonson as a redirect for people that search for that name on the wiki. --Mercifull 08:33, 9 June 2006 (CDT)

Good point. No harm keeping around a pointer to the new location. (Plus that's two fewer broken links on my talk page...) --Steelviper 08:36, 9 June 2006 (CDT)

Bribes

/me hands Steelviper 100 cubits. http://forum.tip.it/images/smiles/eusa_angel.gif --Mercifull 14:26, 15 June 2006 (CDT)

Sweet! But I am going to have to report this to the Ethics Comittee. You'll probably be banned.--Steelviper 14:28, 15 June 2006 (CDT)
Its all kosher guvnor 'onest --Mercifull 14:32, 15 June 2006 (CDT)
BANHAMMER!!! *wink* --Day (Talk - Admin) 14:40, 15 June 2006 (CDT)

On User Cylon500

I added a block explanation to the user's page already, but feel free to add any additional explanation or clarify/modify what I've added. He's a bit of a loose cannon, this one. --Spencerian 10:16, 21 June 2006 (CDT)

Thanks! Looks good. For whatever good it will do... (it appears that he doesn't read his talk page). You'd think he/she'd notice the "new messages" prompt that appears at the top. Perhaps not. Being blocked limits that user to only editing their talk page, so hopefully this gives them an opportunity to find it and respond. I'd like to see Cylon500 be a contributing member. --Steelviper 11:18, 21 June 2006 (CDT)

Oh Yes...Oh Yes

I just looked at those advertising images you made and was overwhelmed with a need to respond. WOW. Those are some GREAT advertisements, with the perfect blend of factuality and satire (making Spencerian Adama, thumbs up!). Alas, the wonders of Adobe Photoshop (or other program, if you don't use Photoshop) never cease. Of course, you'd probably need to update the group image with Mercifull's face, since he's a new admin, but other than that they're awesome. Where do you post that stuff anyway? I though Wikipedia was commercial free, or is this going out on the World Wide Web, or am I just completely mistaken as to where they go? --Homeworld616 14:35, 23 July 2006 (CDT)

Thanks for the feedback! World Wide Web was the idea, to be used by other Galactica sites or by contributors on their webpages or as signatures on message boards. It wasn't really a completed thought, and was partly just "proof of concept". I do post similar work over in my Galactica BS fan art thread. Photoshop 6 is the "weapon of choice". I've got GIMP installed on another machine, but I don't know it nearly as well as PS at this point. --Steelviper 06:58, 24 July 2006 (CDT)
Well, they were great nonetheless and it's good to know that you aren't injured. If you are confused by that "injured" comment, I said it because I noticed in the newspaper this morning that there was a gunman shooting people at a party in a Knights of Columbus building in Kansas City. I saw from your character box that that is where you live, and when I saw the ages of two of the dead victims I immediately thought, "Holy frak! I hope Steelviper wasn't one of them!" --Homeworld616 23:42, 24 July 2006 (CDT)

User Name

As a massive Battletech fan, I'm surprised it took me this long to comment on your user name. The clans are one of my favorite parts of the universe though. Of course, the Jade Falcons are the greatest of the clans, Quiaff? --Talos 15:09, 23 July 2006 (CDT)

Neg. (But then, you're asking a fan of the clan that got ran out of their invasion corridor in the Inner Sphere by the Falcons, so I'm more than a little biased.) --Steelviper 07:01, 24 July 2006 (CDT)
True, true, better than Wolverine, Wolf, or Smoke(d) Jaguar though. --Talos 10:55, 24 July 2006 (CDT)
It took me a second to remember that first one is the "Not named clan". Which Wolf? (Got all fractured, etc.) And the poor Jaguars ended up paying the price for Wolcott (though I hear it was actually the insolence of an individual on a usenet group pissing off the FASA writers that was actually their undoing). And I DO have to give the Falcons credit for kicking the Vipers out of their "wedge". I think I always resented a little the support they got from all the Aiden Pryde readers. Clan Steel Viper was always sort of a "Ravenclaw" or a "Hufflepuff" to the Falcon's "Gryffendor" or "Slytherin" (to put it in terms of Harry Potter).--Steelviper 11:08, 24 July 2006 (CDT)
When I said Wolves, I meant both the Wolves and the WIE. Kell is cool, except in Operation Audacity when he helps fight the Falcons. I'm a big fan of Pryde, he has a great story (The Jade Phoenix Saga is a great book). Yeah, the Vipers are cool, better than those crazy, shaman (and traitorous) Nova Cats and the bloody Fire Mandrills. --Talos 17:02, 24 July 2006 (CDT)

Galactica 1980 (RDM)

Sweet - I love the pics you added to the G80 silly page! Mokwella 12:59, 26 July 2006 (CDT)

Wiki Comparison 2

I'm working on the updated wiki comparison article; I'll likely make it a special page of some kind. I couldn't remember where we discussed redoing it, thus the note here. I hope to have it done before the weekend, but I have to dive around all the wikis a lot. --Spencerian 10:36, 2 August 2006 (CDT)

Thanks for the update. The discussion was previous located at User talk:Spencerian#State of the Wiki. Also, thanks for the TOS retouching. It doesn't get nearly as many pageviews, but it deserves to be just as standardized and conventionalated(ized) as everything else. --Steelviper 10:38, 2 August 2006 (CDT)

Mac

I am in the mall in the Apple store, and the site looks really good on a Mac laptop. :-D Ok gtg. --Shane (T - C - E) 14:58, 7 August 2006 (CDT)

I certainly hope so. I use one exclusively, and Joe uses one as well. We'd be one of the first to scream when the wiki looks like ass. :) --Spencerian 20:55, 7 August 2006 (CDT)
Huzzah ^_^ --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 10:10, 8 August 2006 (CDT)
hah. I remember that video from RIT. That video was played on the big screen. The entire campus busted out laughing. --Shane (T - C - E) 10:17, 8 August 2006 (CDT)
I use a Mac exclusively as well with Firefox. In fact, using Macs is my job; I'm a system engineer for a local IT company. --Spencerian 16:52, 16 September 2006 (CDT)

Don't be a dick

Thanks for starting this idea, it lead me to more ideas. Thanks! --FrankieG 22:27, 15 September 2006 (CDT)

Please check the rewrite of the think tank proposals into one, and revert/changed if I stepped overboard. Thanks. --FrankieG 06:17, 16 September 2006 (CDT)

Welcome back

Ready for the season 3 onslaught? We're getting at least 20-30 new contributors every week now! Hope your tan hasn't affected your typing skills.

We might actually need to consider getting a new administrator; we don't see Day or Peter as often, and we're a bit behind in pre-season mopping, much less being prepared for the new season stuff. Thoughts? --Spencerian 12:00, 25 September 2006 (CDT)

I think my record would demonstrate that I'm rather liberal when it comes to mop-granting. While there may be higher expectations as to how you comport yourself as an admin (since outsiders might attribute more to the "admin" title than there really is), ultimately it's mostly just a "delete" button and a "block" button (and their resective inverses). So I wouldn't be opposed to the idea, should the RFA's come up. We haven't had an "abusive" admin yet, and I've got faith that the RFA process would help keep out most troublemakers.
Possible candidates might include Shane (though that one may be controversial), Gougef (quotemaster), and Talos (one of our imagemasters).
What particular mopping are you targeting? I'm taking a look at the CFSD and CFD articles today. --Steelviper 12:14, 25 September 2006 (CDT)
Oh, the usual. I'm anal when I'm here. On almost every article I find something to mop. :) Yeah, your suggestions aren't bad. I just find it comforting to have an admin online almost all the time. Sorry if I struck the wrong tone. --Spencerian 20:01, 25 September 2006 (CDT)
Well, I do usually end up online most of the workday (Central time), so I guess that'd be comforting. I wasn't inferring a bad tone, just wanted to help pitch in if there was a particular list you were working. Sounds like you're more on "Category:A to Z", which is a nice goal (but difficult to focus on). I guess there's the TODO list and the Goals on the community portal, but it doesn't seem like there's much activity around those. Maybe we should try to change that.
If you like all my mop-boy suggestions well enough to second an RFA, I'd setup the RFA's. Or you could email me your favorites if you're shy about leaving folks out (though it'll be pretty apparent once the RFA's do or don't get created). --Steelviper 20:51, 25 September 2006 (CDT)
OK. Let's get into the season a couple of weeks and see how things go. I'll set up an RFA perhaps by that time, but don't wait for me if you see a greater need. I should do one myself; it looks like "fun." --Spencerian 08:03, 26 September 2006 (CDT)

Mary on TODAY

Set recorder! --Shane (T - C - E) 18:39, 30 September 2006 (CDT)

Original Thought

What no "original" thought? :) Seriously, where is the second thought (second law) from? --FrankieG 11:39, 6 October 2006 (CDT)

The second thought was my own (though the odd diction does make it sound a bit... antiquated). And I was referring, of course, to the second law of thermodynamics (and not the second law of robotics, or motion or whatever). --Steelviper 11:42, 6 October 2006 (CDT)
It just sounded really familiar. Yes, the universe is entropy ;). --FrankieG 11:56, 6 October 2006 (CDT)

Sorry for the spoiler

Didn't mean to be a dick, there with my speculation based on official spoilers. In the future I'll put my comments in spoiler texts to minimize problems. I was sure we could speak about anything on talk, but it can still rankle people who want to be genuinely surprised. --Spencerian 11:44, 6 October 2006 (CDT)

Not a problem at all! I was just worried that it was saying "so and so definitely dies at such and such point". When in fact, it said nothing of the sort. No harm, no foul, play on! --Steelviper 11:47, 6 October 2006 (CDT)

My RFA

NBSG-AdmiralPin.jpg Thank you for participating in my RfA, which passed with a tally of 7/0/0. I can't express how much it means to me to become an administrator. I'll work even more and harder to become useful for the community. If you need a helping hand, don't hesitate to contact me. Shane (T - C - E) 20:36, 8 October 2006 (CDT)

Podcast Transcripts

Thanksyou for starting to write up the transcripts for the poscasts. I think that SciFi have blocked people outside of the US from downloading them (im getting 404 errors) so reading these will be very useful for me.

p.s I think it might be worth archiving your Talk page --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 11:12, 9 October 2006 (CDT)

Actually, the everybody (todo el mundo) is getting the 404 errors from Scifi.com at present. I hit the sciffy boards and apparently they're working on it. Somebody posted a link to a weird format, and somebody later posted a link to the mp3. I'll find that thread, and link to it. Hopefully they get that fixed before too long.
Nag, nag, nag. You're right, of course. I'll archive here in a sec. --Steelviper 11:15, 9 October 2006 (CDT)
Archived. Fetching that link now. --Steelviper 11:19, 9 October 2006 (CDT)
The link. (referenced above). I'm using the galacticastation mp3 (since I new that Express Scribe could handle mp3, but wasn't sure about m4a). --Steelviper 11:22, 9 October 2006 (CDT)
Thankyou ^_^ --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 11:28, 9 October 2006 (CDT)
You're welcome. Thanks for the archive reminder. I don't usually get enough traffic 'round here to justify archiving very often (which is evident given that's only my second archive). --Steelviper 11:30, 9 October 2006 (CDT)

FWIW, I think the problem w/ lack of beeps in the podcasts is that the m4a's have (silent) chapter markers. In iTunes there's a command to skip ahead or back a chapter (command-shift-right or left arrow on a Mac), and I understand the same is true on an iPod. Scifi is breaking each act into a chapter.--PrePressChris 13:09, 25 October 2006 (CDT)

Aha! Thanks! That makes sense. As a non-iPod/iTunes user I was baffled. Even finding a player for it was a bit of a challenge (fortunately VLC was up to the challenge). My biggest problem with m4a is that it's not compatible (at least out of the box) with Express Scribe. Fortunately an mp3 version was floated that covered most of the episode. As long as Scifi keeps putting out the mp3 versions complete with the beeps I'll be a happy camper. (I really didn't need the audio files broken down by act like they were, but it was handy for transcribing in small bites, and knowing ahead of time how long a given act would be.) --Steelviper 13:14, 25 October 2006 (CDT)

Go ahead with KBLGII. I have been ill for several weeks and transcription is one of the last things that I would feel like doing ;). --FrankieG 18:02, 3 November 2006 (EST)

It looks like you are on a roll. Since I'm still not 100%, go ahead with KBLGII. --FrankieG 10:59, 17 November 2006 (CST)

Did you see RDM's blog entry? Aside from last week's and this week's podcasts, there's this coming up: The "Roundtable Discussion" as we're calling it, is a freewheeling discussion, and there are definitely times when there's too much cross-talk and too much laughter on the recording to discern anything coherent (especially in the beginning) but tucked in amid the revelry are some interesting and fascinating tidbits which I hope you'll enjoy. --PrePressChris 17:39, 1 December 2006 (CST)

Yeah. I wasn't that excited about the thought of transcribing that when I saw Mrs. Ron talking about posting it in the first place. It's already up as three parts of "Writer's Meeting" (in three parts). Since it's of the "writer's room" class of podcast, I figured it would go under the same heading as the writer's room podcast (which is to say, likely to be procrastinated on for a while since I'm rather frightened of the thought of all the cross-talk and MANY speakers). --Steelviper 20:36, 1 December 2006 (CST)
I think that's one to leave off 'til we're caught up with this season, at least. --PrePressChris 23:05, 1 December 2006 (CST)
How have you remained sane while doing all this podcasts? I barely got one teaser out of myself. --FrankieG 11:01, 8 December 2006 (CST)
I can't get certified insane if I avoid being diagnosed, right? Mostly I just try to break it up into managable chunks (3 minutes is a typical pull), and try to do a little bit every day. It really helps me (psychologically) when I know other people are working on it too, though. Having you, and Prepress, and Peter, and Shane (and everybody else) working on it makes it feel a lot more like a team effort. I'd love to find somebody to get a head start on the podcasts as they're released on Friday (I wait till I see an episode before starting on a podcast, and that's usually later in the weekend). I definitely feel faster when I'm completing one rather than starting from scratch. I just hope people are reading them. If we're just needing them for a line or two to cite in the episode articles, I could just transcribe those relevent excerpts in a lot less time than it takes to do a whole podcast. --Steelviper 11:14, 8 December 2006 (CST)
I'm using them, anyway. I was just able to quote that bit about having Dirk Benedict playing God thanks to them. (and Gouge, he's not crazy. He just has incredible, almost machine-like, endurance...) --PrePressChris 16:12, 8 December 2006 (CST)

I noticed the Rapture podcast was not getting done, that's why I did it. I'm trying to get it done as fast as I can. I don't think I can have the latest podcast transcribed before the next episode airs, so I recommend that if and when you have time, you start transcribing TaB so we won't interfere with each other. --Catrope 13:16, 30 January 2007 (CST)

BTW, if you're going to verify my transcriptions, would you please try to fill in the "(unintelligible)"s? I felt like I had quite a lot of them, especially in Act 2. --Catrope 13:47, 31 January 2007 (CST)
As a "transcriber", I'll try to prioritize my time towards transcribing the untranscribed first (working on "Taking a Break"), then fall back to verifying once we're caught up (or if I happen to be burned out on transcribing). You might drop a note to PrePressChris as well, as he's been our ace verifier of late and he is extremely adept at converting all of my "unintelligible"'s into english. Don't feel the least bit bad about them, as they happen and that's really what verifiers are there for. Don't let those sections slow you down from getting the "meat" transcribed. We can always go back and clean up that stuff later. I find that if it's really important they will usually repeat themselves or otherwise repeat it in an intelligible manner. --Steelviper 14:00, 31 January 2007 (CST)
