You said you wanted to take a look at what the bot does when it was working... Template:Allopentasks. --Shane (T - C - E) 11:40, 5 August 2006 (CDT)

Thanks. --The Merovingian (C - E) 13:15, 5 August 2006 (CDT)

I created this page (for you and others) for help using the new cite templates so you understand how it works. --Shane (T - C - E) 00:57, 6 August 2006 (CDT)

I do not understand. --The Merovingian (C - E) 01:22, 6 August 2006 (CDT)

Actually could you do that in circa 6 hours? THe old ball and chain has me doin' stuff. --The Merovingian (C - E) 11:52, 8 August 2006 (CDT)
Steel's not around in 6. :-| Shouldn't really take that long. Episode Pages # < Character Pages, but there are more changes... --Shane (T - C - E) 11:55, 8 August 2006 (CDT)

Battlestar List

I understand the list's canon-bility, but I'd like to know the list, and a reference where I can look at it myself. --Volostheguardian 03:52, 9 August 2006 (CDT)

Oh yeah, sure I'll help you out with that; hmmm...I"m going to need to do some digging, I'll get back to you on that...--The Merovingian (C - E) 06:10, 9 August 2006 (CDT)
Where the frak is that list? I'm cutting through alot of felgercarb and I still haven't havent' had a reading on that muthafrakking list. --Volostheguardian 03:32, 18 August 2006 (CDT)
I think some were deleted, and I don't have time to dig; check some of the TOS battlestar entries' History pages, as they may have contained "Zoic-only RDM Battlestar info" from a while ago.--The Merovingian (C - E) 11:16, 18 August 2006 (CDT)
"According to information releaed by Zoic Studios, the Rycon is one of the five battlestars built by the Colonials during the Cylon War, the others being Galactica, Columbia, Pegasus and Atlantia. There is currently no canonical data to support this, but as the Rycon was a name used in the the original series, it is probable the name would be carried forward to the new series."
I dug that out of the Rycon entry. --Steelviper 11:25, 18 August 2006 (CDT)
How could it be Five? Doral stated in the Miniseries that there were originally Twelve. --The Merovingian (C - E) 11:43, 18 August 2006 (CDT)
Ernestborg9 appears to have created that entry (at least the Rycon). I've got no idea where that came from. --Steelviper 11:49, 18 August 2006 (CDT)
If I ever meet that Ernestborg9 guy in person (an impossibility) I'm going to beat him to a pulp. He hasn't come here for over a year, but he wrote a LOT of junk we later had to fix. Most obviously is the "Reviews" he did instead of "Analysis" for episodes, but on top of that; I mean just from technical articles, ship articles, character articles he just made a lot of bad stuff we later had to fix. :) --The Merovingian (C - E) 11:59, 18 August 2006 (CDT)

IGN interview EJO's Bush Comments

Just wondering if you caught EJO's commemts on Bush. Lucy tried to cover for him :).--FrankieG 20:25, 19 August 2006 (CDT)

What are you specifically referring to? I saw the interview but I thought it was the usual "he's a moron" stuff. --The Merovingian (C - E) 20:26, 19 August 2006 (CDT)
Let me see if I can get this right, EJO talking about Adama being so overwhelmed like George Bush and want to throw his hands up, But Bush comes out every morning talking about the happy day it is. Lucy goes not he (bush) doesn't say that. I'll listem again if you want me, but I think that is close. --FrankieG 20:35, 19 August 2006 (CDT)


Oh no, this CNP we're uploading has tons of backdoors! Sure it looks like a good idea, updating the styling and such, but pretty soon we're going to be stuck about 300 gigabytes from our homepage with our pants down and only McAfee to protect us. --Volostheguardian 00:29, 23 August 2006 (CDT)

I don't make these updates; Shane and Joe are doing that, I'm not involved at all.--The Merovingian (C - E) 09:30, 23 August 2006 (CDT)


  • I'm not arguing with you. But out of curiosity could you provide the source where RDM specifically said FTL tech is wormhole based? -- Troyian 16:21, 27 August 2006 (CDT)
I'd have to check the blog; I actually don't really care about tech stuff, I was just pointing out that BSG doesn't call it a "Jump Point". --The Merovingian (C - E) 16:54, 27 August 2006 (CDT)

Name Change

I'm changing my user name from "The_Merovingian" to "V"

The Matrix reference is getting dated, and V for Vendetta is cool. Needed a fresh start.

**Everyone is supposed to know that "The Merovingian" and "V" are the same person; it will even be in my sig for a time. I asked the Admins to change my name and they said okay. Just to let you guys know. -- The_Merovingian 09/06/06 02:38 PM

(the above message was received as a PM by Steelviper on the Bulletin board system --Steelviper 14:37, 6 September 2006 (CDT))

I get confused with people changing names. Ive used the same one for like a bazillion years. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 15:21, 6 September 2006 (CDT)
