Whispers and Latin

Your name has shown up a few times in the history of Whispers. I was wondering if the revelation that the Others speak Latin has any impact on perception of what the whispers say. Since I don't speak Latin, I won't even try to figure it out.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 03:34, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, there's always been interest in the whispers. I had Latin I and II in high school longer ago than I care to remember. Someone -- I'll have to track down who -- was commenting on the correctness of grammar; they might hear something others don't. Thanks.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 17:15, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

How do you make those fancy signatures?

I hope you dont mind me asking, but i dont know how its done, making those signature boxes which include your talk page and contribs etc, is it done in HTML or something? I certanly dont have any advanced wiki skills yet! lol--Nzoomed 23:41, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

"Memorable Quotes"

Hey there. A user has been adding "memorable quotes" sections to character pages, without there being any kind of recent discussion about such a change. I took a look at their talk page and they've been told not to do it once before (Feb 2008), and the last vote on adding quotes to articles ended with it being rejected. I was just wondering if I should revert all the edits or not? Thanks.--Baker1000 16:56, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Ok, done :)--Baker1000 17:35, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Speedy Deletes

Someone made articles for 2 upcoming episodes. 316 (episode) and This Place Is Death need speed deletes until they're the next episode to air. Thanks --Gluphokquen Gunih 02:57, 3 February 2009 (UTC)


Just dropped by to let you know that User:Bloodbath 85 has made some rather frivolous and obviously nonconstructive edits to the "The Little Prince" page. However, several other edits he's made have been constructive, but the one I showed you obviously wasn't. Just letting you know; it may be nothing at all. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  03:28, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  03:42, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

The Mesa / Capsule Dump

How is the Capsule Dump located at The Mesa? They started at the Mesa and then walked for over a day until they reached the Capsule Dump. Hugo815 03:53, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

I agree it's filmed in the same location (Ka'a'awa Valley), and if we are adding locations based on that then we should add the Sonar Fence, Goodwin/Ana fight scene, The Tempest, and the place where Ben intercepted the survivors heading to the Radio Tower as being located at The Mesa Hugo815 04:08, 9 February 2009 (UTC)


I just selected my new favorite SysOp. :P ObiDanKenobi5 04:01, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Ms. Hawking

Where's the discussion page for Ms. Hawking? I think it got screwed up when someone made a redirect instead of moving it. See if you can fix it? Same with the Nadine and Lacombe pages. They were redirected and the talk pages are missing.--Mistertrouble189 03:46, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

I don't understand the deletion of this page as a redirect. It should still redirect to Eloise Hawking as she was still known by that name for part of the show. Robert K S (talk) 03:53, 12 February 2009 (UTC)


Hey CTS. I've just reverted some vandalism from the 5x05 transcipt. This user was responsible, could you please take the appropriate course of action? :)--Baker1000 20:49, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Never mind, it's been sorted.--Baker1000 21:01, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

I want to report Tvbadger90 as a vandal, he keeps deleting theories that don't belong to him--Deuce Dubbington XVII 22:33, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Again another vandal I want to report, Ranat 23, he deleted theories from 316 and gave no reason for deletion.--Deuce Dubbington XVII 22:49, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Another Vandal, Karbuckle, I don't know why they keep deleting theories, maybe they don't like it but that is no reason for it to be deleted.--Deuce Dubbington XVII 23:34, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

So i just saw an article in the talk page for 316/theories talking about newer edits replacing older edits. If that is what is happening to the page than those people I've mentioned today may not be vandals, and I apologize if I falsely accused them of being vandals.--Deuce Dubbington XVII 23:44, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Sneak peek spoilers

We have a huge problem with users editing articles based on information released in the ABC sneak peeks. I've had to revert two articles and still the information has been re-added. There is also a screencap uploaded from a sneak peek. Should these pages be locked?--Baker1000 14:46, 14 February 2009 (UTC)


The page for "316" keeps automatically deleting people's edits. I don't know who to contact about this, but you seem to be the most recently active SysOp, is there anything that can be done?  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  04:06, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, if you look at the edit history, you'll see that strange things were being deleted that had nothing to do with the core content of what people were changing. I see you just protected and unprotected it, and it kinda looks like it might be working again.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  04:09, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

The same thing is happening again with "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham", would you be able to do whatever you did to fix it last week? Thanks.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  04:23, 26 February 2009 (UTC)


I emailed plktrn about the spoiler on the talk page for 316, and I commented it out. However, I see you are online. Could you please handle it and lte plktrn know? It's under the DHARMA logo section, and it really annoyed me because the link leads to a big spoiler picture!! ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 02:31, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

CTS, no, I didn't delete it because I'm not a mod to do so. I commented it out on talk so that it doesn't spoil anyone else. Yes, please, on the rest. ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 05:09, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Both please. There was a spoiler posted in the talk, and I commented it out since I didn't want to get banned for deleting a comment that was not made by me. If you go to edit, it's there, just commented out. Please too ban the person who posted it, or at least warn them not to spoiler others. They spoiled, AND they linked to a spoiler topic without warning that featured a picture I didn't want to see, but couldn't avoid once it opened up as the first post. Thanks ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 05:17, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. I wasn't sure of the process and erred on the side of caution. ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 00:29, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

I don't know if this is a spoiler or not. The_Sheriff/Theories It's a theory page with no parent article created. It's assuming a name of a future station at the very least. --Gluphokquen Gunih 04:29, 21 February 2009 (UTC)


Can you put one of those disclaimer I see on top of the 316/theory page about the theory policy? That way maybe people can better make use of the page and realize that it is used to place theories and not add discussions to the theories listed. Thank you.--Deuce Dubbington XVII 08:13, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Well I know about that but wasn't there a disclaimer like the spoiler banner for the theory policy? Oh and thanks for the heads-up about the talk page deletions and archives.

Well no I don't but I remember seeing one before, it pretty much gave a description of the theory policy and it had links to it. Well I guess the side banner will suffice. --Deuce Dubbington XVII 07:17, 24 February 2009 (UTC)


Please remove this user blog spoiler: Thanks. ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 02:44, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

That was fast! Thanks :) ---- LOSTonthisdarnisland 02:54, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
At this point, if you think a year ban is justified, I think you should just make it till say 31st June 2010. No point in welcoming someone back where you think a year ban is justified for 10 or 11 episodes. May as well make it till the series is complete. (Harsh maybe, but for the sake of a few months...!) -- Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  02:57, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
  • So yeah I forgot to mention that this guy here had posted a link to a spoiler for "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham" on the Talk:Ajira Airways page, I already deleted it but I was told that it needs to be reported as well. I think that they tried to post the actual video on it because it had a bunch of code all around the link. But it was just a link to a video of a scene from this weeks episode. --Deuce Dubbington XVII 08:01, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Spoiler image

Hey, just to bring to your attention that this user uploaded a new version of an existing image earlier. It was a completely different image to the one it is supposed to be and was from a future episode. It has been reverted now, but it would have appeared on all the pages the existing image links to which I think you'll agree is far worse than just uploading a spoiler pic and not linking it to any pages. Just thought I'd let you know so you can take some action :)--Baker1000 20:52, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank you :) --Baker1000 00:27, 25 February 2009 (UTC)


Hey could you delete Image:PilotLapidus-mini.jpg? Thanks. Sometimes I'll try to upload a new version but it always stays the old version. Oh well you can just delete and I'll get a new version (under a different name).--Mistertrouble189 00:04, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Ya know what, never mind. It worked. I guess it takes a few min.--Mistertrouble189 00:08, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Hey, got some images to be deleted (all are replaced with pics of "square" size aka better sized pics)

Thanks.--Mistertrouble189 03:16, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

BDM Geography

Shouldn't the Via Domus stuff have it's own section since it is essentially non-canon? --Hugo815 04:09, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Ah I see, but they never said that what was shown in Via Domus was an accurate representation of the "real" second spectrum or canon. Hopefully we will revisit the BDM in the future and see. --Hugo815 00:11, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

About the blogs

So you know how there is a notification when we have a new message on our talk page, is there a way we can get notified on our blogs when someone makes a comment?--Deuce Dubbington XVII 05:13, 25 February 2009 (UTC)


Hey! There's this user that copied my username and then left me a weird comment! Can you block him/her or give them a warning or something! please! Thanks! -- Bringlibbyandcharlieback  Talk   Contribs 14:40, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Portal Image templates

I've been working on making templates for the portal images in order to gain consistancy with the names. Unfortunately I need to change the names on a couple of them. Could I impose on you to change Template:PortalIMG/Nikki to Template:PortalIMG/Nikki Fernandez and Template:PortalIMG/Helen to Template:PortalIMG/Helen Noorwood? Thanks in advance!  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  05:05, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Canon On Hydra Runway

Why did you pull my non-canon tag from the Hydra camp? The issue isn't over yet - you hadn't even read my talk page reply. I want more input than just you and Baker on this. Restore it. We can pull the tag in a few days IF there is a consensus to do so. Or amend the article. –DocH my edits 03:21, 1 March 2009 (UTC) The canon issue isn't that she said what she said. The canon issue is the hydra camp article says "It seems as if flight 316 crashed landed almost directly on the runway built by the..." ---not a thing was SEEN or SAID to even slightly suggest that the aircraft crash landed anywhere near a runway.--- –DocH my edits
re:You can clealy see from this image that the plane landed on a runway, and there's only one runway we know of that's near the Hydra...

-Not clear at all. I've already examined all the HD photo screencaps. This night shot, I adjusted the brightness, saturation, hue, etc... it is only 20 feet wide - not a runway for the smallest Cessna. The vegetation completely covers across the end of it, well short of the day shot from season three. It looks more like a flat, rocky creek bed... the kind you find close to the shoreline (where Ajira is). Statements don't go into canon articles unless they are facts. Facts can be proven. The statement about the runway can't be proven. Therefore it needs to come out until it is proven... satisfying LP Policy. –DocH my edits 04:04, 1 March 2009 (UTC)


Thank you very much. --Butseriouslyfolks 00:36, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

  • It's not a problem. I've been a wiki admin so I know it's a lot of work, mostly thankless and extremely low paying. ;-) --Butseriouslyfolks 01:18, 5 March 2009 (UTC)


Thanks man. I appreciate it. :) -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  23:01, 11 March 2009 (UTC)


There's a rather lengthy discussion on Lostpedia:Ideas regarding unanswered questions. I've presented my side of the argument, and the rather unfriendly user has dismissed them as me "playing dumb." Could you perhaps go check out this discussion and weigh in? It's all rather confusing, and I want to know if you see it the same way as I do, or if I'm missing something. Thanks,  Sam McPherson  T  C  E  23:47, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  00:31, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Your question on the Darlton interview

  • Just wanted to let you know that I asked the same question on that interview few days ago, though I left Libby out, because I think they won't answer it as part of her mysterious background. Though I asked about Eko's , Tom's and Paulo's last names. --Orhan94 18:13, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Oh, OK. I also really would like to get an answer to that question.--Orhan94 21:27, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

User:Ray sheperd=jacob

Just a head's up, User:Ray sheperd=jacob has vandalized several pages [1][2][3]. The first two seemed like they could've been accidental but the third one is clearly vandalism.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  05:00, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi  CTS  Talk   Contribs . I will make the logo. I can do it. --DF3 my talk page my edits my identity 18:02, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Is this Redinvstaff what you had in mind? I just got a new graphics creator, and I have'nt quite figured out how to use it yet. Its a bit pixley, but I'll try to fix that later.--DF3 my talk page my edits my identity 01:13, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Hey man, how are you doing?

Just wanted to ask you as a Super Moderator, if we may have some moderators for the German forums. Because -- as far as I know -- we don't even have one, at least none of us LP sysops is. Hope you can help me out with that.

Thanks --DerAndre (talk) 16:20, 21 March 2009 (UTC)


Okay first off, I was watching the latest video for Lost Untangled and I noticed that they included an image never used in an episode yet. And using my skills (not really that hard to tell) I determined that it is highly likely that this image is from an upcoming episode, possibly the next one. The image is at 1:59 if you care to look. So I was wondering... should the video be temporarily taken down? What do we do? Secondly, I was looking through a user's page and found here that they had posted the title of the season 5 finale. I'm sure they just heard it on the podcast or were recording it for themselves, but obviously it needs to be taken care of. Thanks much. meggie ~ Talk & contribs 23:47, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Okay thank you! Should we just remove the spoiler banner as soon as those images have been shown then? meggie ~ Talk & contribs 23:57, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Spoiler restriction on titles

Oops. I wasn't aware of that. Won't happen again. WCFrancis 00:01, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
