Icons

Excellent Icon Choices! --Shane (T - C - E) 10:03, 23 April 2006 (CDT)

Thanks, I thought they all needed individual ones instead of the standard photo icon. --Mercifull 10:06, 23 April 2006 (CDT)
I agree. May I suggest a change of icon for: Image:Bsg-wiki-babelfish.png --Shane (T - C - E) 10:06, 23 April 2006 (CDT)
Adobe or Fireworks? And if Fireworks, can you send your PNG file and tell me your setting because somehow when I save the logo, I am making them 49k instead of your 9k. :) --Shane (T - C - E) 11:24, 24 April 2006 (CDT)
Using Adobe Photoshop CS. I dont have fireworks. --Mercifull 12:03, 24 April 2006 (CDT)
Doh. Ok. Desktop is down, no Photoshop CS on laptop. nevermind... :-) --Shane (T - C - E) 12:07, 24 April 2006 (CDT)

Consider this an official announcement of my paying you insane amounts of the proper respect. What the kids are calling, I believe, "Mad props". --Day (Talk - Admin) 22:38, 22 May 2006 (CDT)

Hey, there. Could you make an icon for the silly pages? I'd imagine a tag with a picture of Ed Olmos with a large, red clown nose would do it, and I'll leave it to you. Thanks! --Spencerian 17:09, 23 May 2006 (CDT)

Hows this? BSG WIKI Silly.png --Mercifull 17:35, 24 May 2006 (CDT)
You. Are. A. God. Very cool, thanks! --Spencerian 12:36, 25 May 2006 (CDT)

Got another icon to whip up. Can you make one relevant to the comic for a future tag, or reference one we can use. I'm thinking we should make one to flag any alternate or separate continuity articles, so it probably should be generic. (Maybe an TOS Adama or any other character with a black goatee, going with the Star Trek "mirrorverse" thing.) I'm going to check with Shane (master of tags) to whip up a tag template concept and we can use it and see if it passes overall muster. --Spencerian 14:39, 5 June 2006 (CDT)

Images

Mercifull, you mentioned that you own the PAL DVDs of the first season. If you have the time, it would be great if you could go through Category:Images with no tag and upload some higher quality versions. --Peter Farago 14:01, 23 April 2006 (CDT)

Sure, i'll see what time I have this week and weekend --Mercifull 04:08, 24 April 2006 (CDT)

Mercifull in BSG

That head pose in your user pic is pretty unusual (compared to what people take screenshots of), and I'll keep on the lookout for a "perfect" screenshot match, but in the meantime I whipped up this. (Kind of a dark scene, lighting-wise, but the best match of head/neck I've found so far). --Steelviper 14:29, 2 June 2006 (CDT)

ROFL I look a bit too happy to be at a death ceremony type thing. I'll try and find a better combination of pics of me/bsg pics at the weekend. --Mercifull 15:33, 2 June 2006 (CDT)
Not EVERYBODY liked Cain, apparently... --Steelviper 15:39, 2 June 2006 (CDT)
Lol! --Mercifull 15:55, 2 June 2006 (CDT)

RFA

You've been nominated. Again.--Steelviper 08:23, 23 June 2006 (CDT)

Thankyou for the nomination. :) I will fill out the required areas of the form this afternoon. --Mercifull 08:25, 23 June 2006 (CDT)
Seems like your acceptance has been lost from the page. Please check. --FrankieG 09:30, 23 June 2006 (CDT)
Fixed now, thanks :) --Mercifull 09:36, 23 June 2006 (CDT)


Thanks

Hi, and thanks for your (very delayed) welcome. I joined around the time of the season 2.5 finale, over a month and a half ago. Kkimball 15:42, 28 June 2006 (CDT)

Ooops well everyone else missed your signup too lol. Slipped through the net :P --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 15:43, 28 June 2006 (CDT)

Wheaties

As I recall, and I don't recall what episode, might have been Sacrifice, Roslin says after seeing an aggressive Keikeya, "Looks like someone ate their Wheaties today." I could be wrong, I suppose, but damnit, what are the odds that Wheaties exist in a far corner of the universe? This is significant.... Huh? 09:23, 29 June 2006 (CDT)

Congrats!

You are now an admin! Should you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask any other admin! -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 08:53, 30 June 2006 (CDT)

Thank you all for supporting me :D --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 08:57, 30 June 2006 (CDT)
Congratulations, well deserved --FrankieG 08:59, 30 June 2006 (CDT)
Kudos. --Steelviper 10:05, 30 June 2006 (CDT)
Welcome to the club! As junior admin, you're now the new Mop Boy! We expect the admin break room floor so shiny and clean that food dropped there has the 5-Second Rule extended to 20 seconds. "See Mercifull mop. Mop, Mercifull, mop!" --Spencerian 09:04, 30 June 2006 (CDT)
Oh, I wish I found this earlier, but this Wikipedia link on how to use your admin powers is available. Much of it should apply here as we use the same version of MediaWiki. --Spencerian 09:12, 30 June 2006 (CDT)
Thanks for that link, I will have a good read of it. I also found this article which I think might be useful for me ^_^ --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 09:14, 30 June 2006 (CDT)
Congratulations --CalculatinAvatar(C-T) 16:22, 30 June 2006 (CDT)

Sic transit gloria mundi--The Merovingian (C - E) 09:54, 30 June 2006 (CDT)

Latin or the song by Brand New? :P --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 10:09, 30 June 2006 (CDT)
I'd assume he means the thing with the burning flax, as the song would be a rather mystifying reference. --CalculatinAvatar(C-T) 16:22, 30 June 2006 (CDT)
Welcome to the Admin...ness... *ahem* Right. Man, I wish someone had had that helpful WP link for me on joining. I shall make note of it, as I still don't know how to do some things. --Day (Talk - Admin) 19:25, 2 July 2006 (CDT)
Better late than never.. Congrats, my friend. --Shane (T - C - E) 05:15, 9 July 2006 (CDT)

You Are Receiving A Wireless Broadcast

Hello, you are being contacted by The Homeworld. I just wanted to say thanks for the hints you dropped me on my talk page and just wanted to let you know that you're welcome there anytime. Since you are from England, I will attempt to greet you in the Queen's Enlgish.

Top of the morning to you, and I do say it is an honour working with you on this wiki dedicated to Battlestare Galactica, the most positively smashing sci-fi show and amazing theatre experience. Have a jolly good day now, and it is simply capital to make your acquaintance. Cheerio!

There, I think I overdid it and I apologize for that. By the way, I'm addicted to Red Bull too! It's not illegal in the USA yet and, dammit, it is GOOD! I didn't know it could kill me...That only makes me want to drink it some more! I must go replenish my stock. Homeworld out. --Homeworld616 10:32, 20 July 2006 (CDT)

Tank

The tank need your input. --Shane (T - C - E) 09:35, 26 July 2006 (CDT)

Cite Templates. --Shane (T - C - E) 08:29, 27 July 2006 (CDT)
Sorry for delay, been a bit busy --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 08:41, 27 July 2006 (CDT)

Additions to Michelle Forbes

I'm really sorry about that copyright mix-up. I thought that since this is also a wiki that I could use the material about Michelle Forbes from Wikipedia here. I will take down the article and re-write it. Please contact me at my user talk. --Commander Me. (I don't know how to make a direct link, so you might have to find me the hard way.) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Commander Me (talk • contribs).

No problem, copyright issues can be quite complicated. If you are in doubt if something can be used or not add it to the talk page and ask for comments. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 02:55, 27 July 2006 (CDT)

Voting

Yes.. I am voting though I despise the movie. :-D. On that. On that other issue, any updates? --Shane (T - C - E) 09:42, 8 August 2006 (CDT)

What other issue? --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 09:44, 8 August 2006 (CDT)

You still online?

n/t --Shane (T - C - E) 10:18, 13 August 2006 (CDT)

Yeah i'm on now --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 10:19, 13 August 2006 (CDT)
Bloops. Checking to see if you are online. :) --Shane (T - C - E) 14:55, 15 August 2006 (CDT)
