A new Bob

I believe User:Bob Lister is a Bob vandal, judging by the photos he has just uploaded. Just thought I'd let you know so that you can take the appropriate course of action :)--Baker1000 13:25, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Yeah the creepy sex offender pictures was a give away. Thanks for banning him ^_^--Baker1000 01:31, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Uh, just thought I'd alert you that he's just managed to edit his talk page. User talk:Bob Lister--Baker1000 13:54, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
No problem. Also, I was wondering if there was a way you could take down the Christmas banner on the Lostbook skin, since it's been over for a while now...thanks! :)--Baker1000 00:50, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks alot =)--Baker1000 02:19, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

sawyer Biblical references

i have seen that you edited my comment :***Jacob in Hebrew refer to heel, because Jacob grabbed his twin brother, Esau's, heel on birth. There is no connection at all between Jacob and cheater nor supplanter, FOR SURE.

Via Domus eps

Hey, what do you think about adding a line for a link to the walkthrough subsections on Template:Infobox Via Domus, similar to how we put a transcript link at the bottom of episode article infoboxes. There are currently no links on pages like Hotel Persephone to the walkthrough section. Other than that, I like how it's turned out like we discussed - having the article for each ep be like an episode one and then have the walkthroughs contained separately - looks much better. --Nickb123 (Talk) 00:40, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Damn, did I? I thought I removed the link to the episode images because it was just one big cat and difficult to navigate. --Nickb123 (Talk) 23:22, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Via Domus Walkthrough

Hey CTS, I just wanted to express my gratitude for cleaning up the walkthrough for me. I worked on it from start to finish, then did some things in between and worked from there. I also got rid of my Chrome and Google bar so I didn't have spell check when making those huge adds. I was waiting for some info from the forums and have been really busy due to the holidays and haven't been able to do the final read through. I know this isn't proper to do on a wiki because of the people who may read it in the mean time, so I just wanted to say sorry.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  06:30, 11 January 2009 (UTC)


hi  CTS  Talk   Contribs . i changed my user page and then loged out. when i am loged out it is the old page. when i log it is new. when i click edit it says im editing an old page. do you know what the problem is? thanks.--DF3 my talk page my edits my identity 15:41, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

hey. is the lighthouse a real station?--DF3 my talk page my edits my identity 02:23, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

i think that the temple and the lighthouse should be on the DHARMA stations page. do you?--DF3 my talk page my edits my identity 16:33, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

hi  CTS  Talk   Contribs . i think the lighthouse and the temple should have PNGs like the others. do you agree? ( Ex: Image:TheSwan.png )--DF3 my talk page my edits my identity 14:34, 26 January 2009 (UTC)


Hey, do you think we can take down the template notices on the Via Domus Walkthrough? I would leave a message on the talk page but it would be another 5 months before there was a answer. I got almost all of it done (besides 1 or 2 minor bits of info viewers/editors can add), you and that one other editors read it over and corrected the major and minor grammer issues. I got all the controls and more. It's taken about 2-3 months but unless I missed some other issues it's done! Just wanted to know about the templates.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  11:30, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


Hey again, I came across a vandal, User:Drakodan. He has made four edits total and each are acts of a vandal, I reverted the Christian Shepard page twice but didn't want to go on and provoke him. Just thought I would let you know.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  12:16, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


I know it's become your past time to undo every single edit I make, despite its validity, but what the heck is the deal with reverting the "Steve" picture to one of the actor who no longer plays him? If I wanted to quickly find out who Steve was, and what he looked like, that picture would serve only to confuse given the fact that he is now played by Dustin Watchman. Other than "for old times sake," I see no logic for keeping the main photo on the Steve page as the picture of Christian Bowman from the seventh episode of the first season. It's now Season 5, and Watchman plays Steve. I think my change was legitimate, in good faith, and makes perfect sense. So other than it being your knee-jerk habit to undo everything that I have done (including hijacking the Survivors page that I created), what rational basis is there for undoing this change? --Castaway815 15:49, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Vandal 2

Got another vandal for ya, User:Oliver Mitchell, nothing to offensive.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  11:31, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

vandal note

I also messaged few other SySops on this matter, User:Oliver Mitchell vandalized Alex, User talk:Nickb123 and User:Orhan94, my user page. If you are currently online, could you please check the page history for Alex, because I reverted his/her edits, and could you please ban him/her. Orhan94 11:33, 14 January 2009 (UTC)


Could you delete Talk:Archetype/Merge beacuse the article itself states the it should've been deleted five months ago. Orhan94 21:36, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Thank you. Orhan94 21:38, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Re: Blonde Woman/Ricos Wife

The blonde womans in Lost: Via Domus can be heard saying what I quoted, if you listen carefully enough. (with a good set of headphones)

Re:Lost Via Domus images

Sure. I'll upload them soon. QuiGonJinnBe mindful of the Living Force... 13:11, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Could you move Category:Images of Ana-Lucia Cortez to [Category:Images of Ana Lucia Cortez, because I'm fixing some old redirects to Categories and Templates that started appearing in the Wanted Pages article since LP moved to Wikia, and it would help me a lot. Orhan94 15:41, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

  • OK. I'll do that later after I'm done clearing out Wanted Pages. Orhan94 17:02, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
    • Could you also unprotect Image:Goodwin ana promo.JPG? Orhan94 18:04, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Hey, FYI see my comments at Orhan's talk page. I am going out very soon all day, and will not be able to today handle the task of deleting all the category redirects he made. (rollbacks don't work; please use a full delete rather than blanking the page). Could you try and do so? -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk  18:16, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
    • Yeah, all of them should be deleted; if anyone uses these tags, the user will think they have correctly categorized an article or image, but the fact is they don't work and the article/image remains uncategorized, but b/c it appears in the "redirect cat" (use &redirect=no), they won't show up in the list of uncategorized images. Bottom line is they don't work, but would lead users to believe they do, so they really need to be deleted. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk  18:22, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
    • If you don't have time, I'll do it tomorrow. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk  18:23, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
    • OK I'm back. Thanks so much for going through those. I gotta ask Angela and the team if there is an easier way to do that other than restoring backups. BTW regarding your img tag question, what it does is add a category tag through using <includeonly>[[Category:something]]</includeonly>. I believe similar categorization is done with images from episodes... it should all be in the options of the img tag. -- Contrib¯ _Santa_ ¯  Talk  03:06, 18 January 2009 (UTC)


Just wondering if the protection on the new episode pages will be lifter as the episode airs in the US or after it's finished? Can theories for the events that happen in the show be added while it's airing or after it's finished as well?-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  03:17, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs 

Question for a SYSOP

Hi mate, a quick question. When the new episodes air of Season 5, are we supposed to wait for a SYSOP to fill in the episode summaries, or can anyone jump in and start writing? I ask because if everyone is trying to edit the same page at once it could get confusing.. Integrated (User / Talk) 04:52, 17 January 2009 (UTC)


Hey, could you delete Image:Curly-hairedGuy.jpg and Image:IMG grayshrttailie.jpg since I uploaded better versions. Thanks man. --16:53, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Hey I think I created an article page by accident when trying to insert an image to my user page, can you delete the article page if in fact I did create it. It says (New page: 1x15-Charlie_Shooting_Ethan.jpg‎) in the recent changes page.--Deucedub17 02:59, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

After exploring the wonderful new feature of blogs, I realized you can't delete them lol. So go ahead and delete User_blog:Mistertrouble189/Testing.--Mistertrouble189 04:34, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Another Question for a SYSOP

Sorry to bother you again, but it's been bugging me for a while that on the Ben theories page ( there is a section specifically titled Theories which either need additional evidence/logic or to be removed to comply with the Lostpedia theory policy. The section is full of outdated theories and has been there for a while, I'm wondering shouldn't we be clearing up theory pages and removing outdated theories prior to season 5? Do I have permission to delete this section? Integrated (User / Talk) 00:19, 18 January 2009 (UTC)


Hey, CTS. I'm new to Lostpedia, and I am designing my userpage. Can you tell me where I can find the Lostaway Template? Thank you, --Katrina Johnson 03:16, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

merging and cleaning up

So i was looking at the active projects page and decided to go through the episode theory pages and saw that The Man Behind the Curtain/Theories page needs to be cleaned up or merged and I wanted to do it so I can help out with the work but I wasn't sure how to go about this. I was just going to go and pick out the theories and place them in their respective theory pages without making duplicate theories but than I noticed that when SysOps do this kind of work it shows up in the recent changes as merging and deletion. Is there a way I can do this without causing too much of a disturbance or will I have to just go through one theory at a time? --Deuce Dubbington XVII 04:11, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank You

Thanks for your help, CTS! By the way, is there anything I can do to improve Lostpedia page-wise? Thank you again, --Katrina Johnson 21:19, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

RE:Mr. Squinty

We should add at least two more columns since I'm sure we'll be getting new screenshots of the Others in Season 5, so why not add the columns now and insert the Mr. Squinty pic. And I noticed that in the "comments" column, the episodes aren't showing up, just a bunch of apostrophes. We should probably do the same with the middle section background cast--Mistertrouble189 22:46, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Hmm it seems like you added a second row when it should have been a column instead. I will try to see if I can fix that.--Mistertrouble189 18:14, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Well I thought it'd be better to add more columns I guess. I tried to add another column but idk fully how to do it so I gave up haha. I think Santa knows how to though.--Mistertrouble189 18:27, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Yeah that's very true. If all else fails, a second row can work out. I'll drop a message for Santa about this.--Mistertrouble189 18:30, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Yeah ok I just gave up adding a column. I'll let others worry about it when the time comes. ALSO, you could add the picture of Mr. Squinty as a tailie to the "comments" column and then insert the pic in the 2nd row into the first, si?--Mistertrouble189 01:46, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
  • The first pic in his row is him as a Tailie. We could move this picture to his "comments" column (like other extras have pictures of them off-show in that column) and then, insert the picture you recently added into the first row (thus removing the 2nd row)--Mistertrouble189 01:52, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Let's go get 'em

I read your profile page; seems you're a big fan of Jack too. He's my favorite character on the show. Nice to find any other fellow Jackfaces. You've done a lot of cool stuff on the site, and I really like your DHARMA symbols. Check out my theories and let me know what you think. NamasteCrazy Bearded Jack 06:11, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the compliments to. I can't wait for the show to start. I hope to be a lot more involved on LP this year. I'm planning on working on as many episode recaps/new pages and contributing as many theories as I can. -- Crazy Bearded Jack 00:35, 20 January 2009 (UTC)


I was just going through random pages and it eventually led me to this page here. I was wondering why this page was locked and what it was for. There's nothing on there at all and even the discussion page is locked. Just curious.--Deuce Dubbington XVII 07:51, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Two tailies

Hey, could you check out my latest post on the talk page of the list of flight 815 passengers? I added two tailes that were seen being taken away in a promotional still (from The Other 48 days) however Castaway revertrd it..--Mistertrouble189 04:40, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

  • There were more bg tailies that would make the "offical number" (like 22 or something) of tailies untrue. Ana said 9 were taken on the 12th night however more than 9 ppl disapeared. The 6 bg tailie men on the table (2 are the ones castaway reverted) are there cuz theyre seen with the othets/seen being kidnapped. See also Talk:Castaway815.--Mistertrouble189 04:58, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Castaway once again reverted my edit, perhaps drop a msg for him?--Mistertrouble189 03:31, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
  • He saw our convo and agreed to leave them up there "for now"--Mistertrouble189 03:40, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

User pages

Hi, C! Apologies for breaching policy. I find that it's easier to welcome new people to the wiki when there aren't so many redlinks in Recent Changes. Lostpedia has been so active today, I wanted to make sure you guys weren't getting behind in welcoming the new members of the community. If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. Thanks again! —Scott (talk) 00:21, 23 January 2009 (UTC)


Hi, I was wondering whether there is a general discussion page for this.. but I'm wondering if on character pages we should ditch the Day 100- after where it says Season 5. The only reason I say this is because now they are glitching their way through time doesn't the number of days they've spent on the island since the crash become like.. redundant? Until we have a more clear frame of where (and when) they are going to actually end up, wouldn't it be better to leave out the Day 100- ?? Is there a page I should go to to discuss this? Integrated (User / Talk) 02:55, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Thanks a lot for your fast reply man! I've put the idea up there, feel free to comment on it. Integrated (User / Talk) 03:56, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the comment, I see your logic. My worry is that things will get fairly complicated if they end up in a different time period, or if they get separated and all move to different times. Integrated (User / Talk) 04:36, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry I answered you so late

You asked me a couple months ago why I removed the inconsistancies from the BDM (Via Domus). Well it's because It is becoming plainer and plainer that Ben's radio tower map is pretty messed up. I know a lot of people think it is the the map of maps, but if you compare the evidence for both the North and South issue (Whether the the Beach camp being to the north or south, and other locals) the the survivor camp being to the south pretty much wins hands down. You might want to check out It has a compiled list of pretty much all geographic/directional references within the show. Another to also check out is (Yea it has a similar name, but it's a different site). --LOST-The Cartographer 02:57, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Renaming Moria --> Moira

Hey, when I created Moria, I realized that her name is actually Moira so a rename would be appreciated. Thx. --Mistertrouble189 04:27, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

So that guy was banned? I guess he didn't like Bernard.--Deuce Dubbington XVII 06:54, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
