Welcome and well done on all your work here. Unfortunately, we don't have many active admins and even they are a bit quiet at the moment. Give User:Balzac a nudge if necessary. Speedoslover 21:22, 23 November 2008 (UTC)


"Strange characters"

In Sept. 2006, this site underwent a rename vandalism attack, where articles were renamed to names of other articles and/or to random nonsense titles multiple times. As part of the recovery effort, characters other than simple ASCII were messed up (UTF-8 codes interpreted as as ISO-8859-1). We fixed most of these at the time, but some eluded us. Just so you know... -- AnonMoos 19:25, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

true, that is an import reason to use things like © for © etc... --Roguebfl (talk) 19:53, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
I see, thanks. Obviously, if I see any other funnies I shall fix them. Ropeuser 22:09, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you :)

Now that you are an admin; how about taking a look at what I wrote on MediaWiki talk:Licenses, especially as you do a lot of image uploading yourself.

Wiki links

when a wiki url has index.php you do not use index.php?title=User:Ropeuser but instead use index.php/User:Ropeuser the "title" style are only used for special page function. --Roguebfl (talk) 13:03, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Cat and kitten suit

"A catsuit without legs is sometimes called a kittensuit, although such a garment is indistinguishable from a leotard." Does a kittensuit still have a zip, as with a catsuit? If so, it is distinguishable from a leotard; if not, perhaps that is worth stating. --Interesdom 14:26, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Leotards may have zips if they have high necks: [1] I could say "indistinguishable from a leotard with a zip." Ropeuser 17:29, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Mental nondage / Honour bondage

When I checked for mental bondage before creating it, I missed seeing honour bondage. I think they may as well be merged, what do you think? --Interesdom 23:20, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Done; I leave you to decide whether we still need to acknowledge SMiki. Ropeuser 14:34, 11 May 2009 (UTC)


Hello, thanks for your welcome note (and your recommendation pointing me here too), it's great to be involved with this.

I had a thought, but being new here I wanted to get a second opinion. The paraphilia page is extensive, but doesn't point to any exhaustive list of specific philias; I was considering that it might be useful to create either a list on the paraphilia page - or perhaps a separate sub-category under the Fetish category. I'm more than happy to do this, just wondered what you (or others) thought about it. --Erleiden 00:59, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Question re: wikipedia content

Hi, and thanks for the welcome on my talk page.

I'm working on redlinks as a way of getting to know the place. I was going to do cosplay next, then discovered that Wikipedia has an excellent, well-referenced article on the subject. Since this is definitely a fetish-oriented topic, I'd like you opinion on how to handle it.

Do I:

  1. Cut and paste the Wikipedia content here? That would freeze the article in its current state.
  2. Create a stub article, and link to the Wikipedia content? That would keep the article fresh but also expose us to vandalism that occurs over there.
  3. Not create an article at all, but fix the redlinks to point directly to Wikipedia?
  4. Do my best to recreate the article here? Would rather not reinvent the wheel.

Anne Rice

Her parents named here Howard? If true it would be good to add a bit of Wikitext to warn the unwary... Howard!!? bt 13:19, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Surprising for an Irish Catholic family in that place and time, but I guess her own Web site settles the issue (assuming it's not been spoofed or vandalized itself...). Thnaks for the heads up... Howard!??? bt 20:40, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
