Skype name

Hello I don't know you all that well, but I was wondering what your skype name is. That would be great Thanks Derpster945 (talk) 22:03, January 25, 2013 (UTC)

I do not know you very well so I won't mention my Skype name, sorry about that :/ The Americanized Brony22:10, January 25, 2013 (UTC)
I have a feeling we may see each other some more so keep this question in mind Derpster945 (talk) 22:34, January 25, 2013 (UTC)

About this FANMADE thing, I accidently uploaded the "Rule 63 Rarity" by mistake, he wasn't even supposed to be put on this wiki, I wanted to put a screenshot of an episode and I carelessly clicked the Rule 63 by mistake and uploaded without realizing...

I hope that I don't do similar mistakes in the future, and have a good day...

About my pictures..., my bad

Sorry about the picture size, I have finally managed to shrink them down to a more acceptable size, but so far all I got is at least 640. I hope that's of any good use?! Again, sorry. I'll be more carefell pal. YggdrasillLaufey (talk) 17:34, February 7, 2013 (UTC)

Getting Me Banned from this Wiki


Juan this is Slack345,

I saw that you were in on the plan to get me removed globally and that you were helping Ced.  How could you?

I thought we were friends.  It doesn't matter because I got unbanned on the gumball wiki and Randomced got banned for 2 weeks on this wiki.  This just shows that you can't trust anyone when it comes to the internet. Slack345 (talk) 22:19, March 6, 2013 (UTC)Slack345Slack345 (talk) 22:19, March 6, 2013 (UTC)

Plan gone awry. I took no part on the plan. BTW please remember to use the proper header if your message is different from the previous one, thanks. The Americanized Brony23:28, March 6, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Suggestive Images

Alright, I'll attempt to be more wary of what I post.  What if I make external links as long as it's nothing super suggestive and warn people?  Anyways, I'll keep it as PG[13] as I possibly can XD.

Dragon Theology (talk) 06:27, March 9, 2013 (UTC)Dragon Theology

Meme faces were not allowed on the wiki by an Admin a while ago. I link them using the {{R}} and it seems to be fine. So yeah, I guess you can link them as long as they're not too disturbing/suggestive, thanks. The Americanized Brony15:14, March 9, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, Juan, it's me,Firefly233 13:37, March 29, 2013 (UTC),anyway uh, thanks for the advice, bye!

Image Question

Okay, I just want to know.  How is it the gifs I used for my page got deleted yet the ones with AJ are still there.  I posted gifs with Zecora, Chrysallis, Changelings, etc. and they all got deleted and now a bunch of broken picture frames are being shown.

I just want to know is there a reasoning behind it, cause if so I would like to know

Dragon Theology (talk) 18:31, April 17, 2013 (UTC)Dragon Theology

That was probably on account of you using the URL of the image, rather than the Wikicode form. If you use [[File:This image.png]] rather than the full URL of the image, it will show that the image is in use and it will not get deleted.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  18:34, April 17, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry about that. You should follow Food's tip so this problem doesn't happen in the future. Now let's wait for somepony to undelete them. The Americanized Brony18:44, April 17, 2013 (UTC)

Misnamed files~

Hola Juan SQUEE.png

Well I found a couple of images that were new and misnamed (it's probably 5 hours ago by the time you read this lol)  and I just wanted to let you know. So the sooner you can come one the sooner you can take care of them Spike_and_rarity_s_heart_shaped_fire_ruby_by_edwardten-d4jbvk5.png FAHqYUz.png Spitfire Talk  xzAIGzM.png

Hello Juan, As you may have know, my Chatban has now ended, but there's a problem, I'm still banned. I don't know whats happening, but why am i still banned for, JacobMason2345 (talk) 16:33, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

At the time this message was left your ban was still active. Your ban ended 30 minutes after you left this message. You should now be able to access chat. The Americanized Brony19:02, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

Deleting unused files

Hi Juan. Recently I noticed that you deleted a fanmade file with the reason being "4 hours unused" or something like that? (I got the notification because I renamed the file shortly after it was uploaded.) Is that a legit reason now? That would be nice, because I get the feeling that there are too many junky unused non-official files floating around that people upload just for fun. Steph physarum (talk) FANMADE_Octavia_by_the_fireside.png 12:55, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, fanmade images can be deleted if they are not being used. Although some administrators or ImageControl wouldn't like how fast I delete them I feel that if they are not being used after 3 hours of being in the wiki they should be taken care of. Also it would be a good idea to rename the images after they are put to use, as renaming them and then being deleted is not productive :) The Americanized Brony13:02, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
The problem is that when I look at a recently uploaded fanmade image (often with titles like "03893084038902eee.png") I don't know whether to jump to action and rename it, or just keep it at the back of my mind and pray he/she won't use it so I can just delete it half a day later. But like you said, it's a waste of time to carefully rename something, only to have it deleted when it's deemed unused.
I think I'm going to start a forum topic about sourcing fanart. As a growing wiki, I feel bad that we don't have a way to credit the sources of images that people upload. It's fairly easy 95% of the time to trace an image back to a Deviantart account or something using Google Image Search, but we should have the habit of sourcing artists. I bet they wouldn't be too happy if they came on the Wiki and saw that people were just uploading their artwork, even if it's just for use on their personal profile page.

Comment deletion

Please avoid marking comments for deletion when they have some sort of relevance to the page or are talking about the show. Comments only really need to be deleted when they are harassment, trolling, spam, completely random and off-topic, nonsense, etc. Thanks, ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 00:49, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Off-topic question: did you put extra "span" code there so it won't trigger an abuse filter or something? (I replied really quickly to this because I got an email notification.) Steph physarum (talk) FANMADE_Octavia_by_the_fireside.png 00:55, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
Yes. It's a way to get around it because it doesn't strip HTML tags.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  02:16, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
Isn't the word "troll" (and by extension, its present participle "trolling") not filtered? 04:45, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
In that case, it might be the spam filter, which we don't control. It catches random things every now and then when it's inconvenient for you. Alternatively, we might just be assuming it was filtered in the first place. Hah.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  04:49, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
Nah, I thought it was the vandalism filter when the edit didn't save the first time, so I did the span trick so I wouldn't get blocked. It was actually a server issue, though. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 05:02, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
I feel like I was tagging those type of comments for deletion. Anyways I guess I'll have to tone it down a bit and tag the ones that seem necessary (all the ones I tagged seemed to be but eh). The Americanized BronyJuan The American Brony (talk) 01:03, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess I might be a bit more lenient on deleting them. It's usually fine for them to stay unless they're obviously bad or non sequitur. Kind of hard to explain my criteria, but most of the ones I saw tagged were acceptable to me. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 05:02, May 30, 2013 (UTC)


Hello Juan, you just added the Workshop article Craft to the candidates for deletion. Would you please explain why ? Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  15:44, June 10, 2013 (UTC)

Because the article itself is pretty much useless and it lacks content. The Americanized Brony15:46, June 10, 2013 (UTC)
Would you please tell me where I could find the information this article aims to provide in the future ? Would you also consider a workshop article a candidate for deletion for its lack of content, even if less than a month old ? Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  15:48, June 10, 2013 (UTC)
I usually just tag stuff for deletion when I think it shouldn't exist. You could ask an administrator about it, thanks. The Americanized Brony15:51, June 10, 2013 (UTC)
Done. Thanks –  Drakep6yPvD4.png  16:05, June 10, 2013 (UTC)


Please Juan help!! I uploaded the same file of "Wubway" twice but with different file names. One is "FANMADE wubway" and the other is "5hfsajflasjdfljsaf" something like that. Please could you delete the 5safjasfksajf;l one please? Thanks. Raraah, Awesome Pony 23:43, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

Profile page music

I jumped a little when I heard it, then I was like YEAAAAH AVATAR! (I commented so quickly on this because I got an email notification that you edited your page) Steph physarum (talk) CastleCreator_Octavia.png 05:00, July 18, 2013 (UTC)

lol, you like the Avatar series too? :D Yeah, I like Avatar, ALOT. Although I just got into it a few weeks ago, when I remembered I used to watch it. By what you heard, I love the Credits music :P The Americanized Brony05:33, July 18, 2013 (UTC)
I was really into ATLA and Korra a while back, now ponies are my "main" cartoon series/ are at the forefront of my mind. :D Steph physarum (talk) CastleCreator_Octavia.png 05:35, July 18, 2013 (UTC)
Eh, the Avatar series replaced MLP on my favorite show spot for now. I still love MLP though, too good of a show. The Americanized Brony05:40, July 18, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Juan

Hey Juan, thanks for the message. I hope college isn't stressing you out too much, although I can only imagine how much work you have and how intense the classes must be. Funnily enough, I haven't been editing here much (or at all) because I'm doing all the work on another wikia. What back-up plan were you referring to? I'm not quite sure what you meant. You have fun too, no matter where you go :) Steph physarum (talk)V6OlmCb.png 18:46, February 22, 2014 (UTC)

It's-a Shad here

Hey Juan! So, remember when you said i don't need to leave any money in the spiders' web if i want to fight a special boss in Undertale? Well, i was spoiled about who the boss is becuz YouTube suggested a music called "Spider Dance - Muffet's Theme" to me. So heh, looks like i know who it is.

So uhh, i'm at the part where i'm at the depressed ghost's house (still haven't killed anything) so how close am i to this boss fight?

Your images

Good morning Juan,

As requested, I have deleted all the images you tagged.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Kind regards, 7d2V8iG.png 11:55, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

S&E number formatting

I'm pretty sure it was agreed way back when that either the formatting with zero padding or no zero padding was acceptable (so S0?E0?, S?E0?, and S?E?, for example, would all be acceptable). Not saying you have to stop, if you don't want to (I mean, you do have your bot flag on, so it's not like you're flooding Recent Changes or Wiki Activity), just wondering why you're going through and making such a minor change.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 01:22, April 23, 2016 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png 

It did cross my mind that it was allowed but when I checked the guidelines, I saw "Celestia smiling S1E02.png" as an example and took off from there. The example shown in here also displayed "Apple Dumpling ID S3E08.png" in the list. I was planning on setting S#E## as a set guideline after finishing with seasons 1-6 (since only the first 9 episodes of each season have that issue). I can stop if you would like me to. Juan The American Brony (talk) 02:00, April 23, 2016 (UTC)
Aaaand I forgot to set my bot flag back on after posting this message. My bad Juan The American Brony (talk) 04:02, April 23, 2016 (UTC)
Like I said, I don't really care (while I would prefer it to remain up to each contributor as to whether or not to have zero padding in the season and episode number, I'd be fine with one set standard being introduced as well), I just don't think it matters, either. You're free to do as you please, since like I said, you put your bot flag on so as to not flood Recent Changes or Wiki Activity. Also, thanks for the response - I was wondering why you were making that edit.-- Undisguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.pngJonny Manztalkcontribse-mailedit count 09:34, April 23, 2016 (UTC)Disguised_Nyx_by_AibotNya.png
