Incident Rename

Will you please take a look at this discussion? thanks. -- Roobydo  talk  contribs  12:07, 30 May 2009 (UTC)


Hey, just read your season 5 review, very comprehensive, great read! However I think with your line "I still don't believe that JACOB, the ageless seemingly all-powerful island entity, was killed by Ben. I'm pretty sure that Jacob wanted to be killed, for reasons unknown" you're in a bit of denial there. --Integrated (User / Talk) 06:57, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

  • I don't think we can predict what the writer's motives are.. and they killed him off in his first appearance - so what? I do think Jacob dying will have dire consequences for the Island, possibly the world --Integrated (User / Talk) 15:13, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
    • That's true but I think his enemy would know that - he spent one hundred fifty years planning this remember.. just because to us we see him for one episode, from Jacob's enemy it was been a very long time coming. Personally I think the 'war' that Widmore mentioned, and the 'they' that are coming, is perhaps the people who invented the rules that Jacob's Nemesis had to find the loophole in, who are more powerful than Jacob or his nemesis. And maybe they relate to the whispers? --Integrated (User / Talk) 15:21, 31 May 2009 (UTC)


Hey CTS there seems to be an ongoing problem with user User:ObiDanKenobi5 he seems to have good intentions but has continued to make changes to major images without disscusing them. He has been warned by several users including myself and still continues to make these image changes without having disscused his disered change only after a week long disscusion he finally decided to discuss one change he made. Not only that but while disscusing it on the talk pg in his argument he took repeated shots at my argument and me as a user with sarcastic remarks on two seperate occasions. I feel like this i getting out of hand he replaces images with the same exact ones that are his own for no apparent reason and changes major picture (such as episodes main pictures and portal pictures) without disscusing with other users I was hoping maybee a message from a sysop would hopefully get this guy to cut out these antics. Thanks -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  16:20, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Update: hey nevermind after his latest message i think he may understand his mistakes in editing these pictures. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  03:24, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Deletion request

Hey CTS, could you delete Image:SBSSG2-mini.jpg for me? Thanks.--Mistertrouble189 21:16, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

One of my pages. text formatting problem.

Hey. I was working on my user page and the text won't format properly. Can you take a look at it and see what I did wrong? This is the page: User:Crash815/Chapters and the problem is on the row starting with "The Future". The names in the "flashforward" column are supposed to be bolded and centered, but it's not working properly. --Crash815 Talk 17:07, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the help. It's finally working! Crash815 Talk 18:50, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Jacob's Nemesis

Hey I saw you re-added 'Esau' to the fan nickname section of Jacob's Nemesis. I deleted it but quickly undid my revision when I was it was a Sysop who'd re-added it. I see you've also read the discussion we've been having, and after reading this you have honestly decided to allow nicknames which are only referenced by fan sites? If this is your decision then fine, I just want to hear it confirmed, that any nickname can now be spammed onto that page with a fan website as a reference? --Integrated (User / Talk) 04:02, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

  • You stating "Esau, Flocke, Unlocke" are the most prominent and popular nicknames does not make it truth. Only a handful of people call him Esau because they think it makes them sound smart. Thank you for the clarification though.--Integrated (User / Talk) 05:00, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Hi, CTS. Could you make a final say on whether this "fansite" counts as a legitimate reference for the nickname "Spider-Man" to be added to the Jacob's nemesis article? Given the lack of content on the site, the lack of formatting, and the lack of Google being able to find any reference to "the world from above" as a Lost fan site, it seems possible (even likely) that this is a fake site being made simply so that the name "Spider-Man" can be added to LP. Even if this is not the case, however, I don't feel that the site has any notability to give a new nickname to the character, particularly since it doesn't bother to point out who these "hundreds of fans" are who use this nickname. Thanks for your help.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  07:43, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

A request

Could you please check out the discussion I started on the forums? Thanks. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  20:04, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Re: Evangelism

Thanks, I appreciate you taking the time to say that, especially since it was in the past. While I disagreed with Robert KS opinion, I ultimately felt that if I said anything else to disagree with him, I would have been banned. I didn't want that to happen for any reason. Thanks for letting me know that if that had happened, another SysOp could have reversed it if they felt it was wrongfully done. I also thought it was shady that he actually removed the comments from the talk page where the discussion was at, even though removing anything from a Talk page is against LP policy. I wasn't looking for an argument, but he seemed to be doing what he was accusing me of doing. Again, thanks for taking the time to express your opinion.  NEVERGIVEUP  Contribs  Talk  20:39, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Idea not getting attention

I posed an idea on the idea page about a week ago. It hasn't received that many responses.

Question 1) Can you take a look at it and comment? It's here.

Question 2) Who should I talk to about making the bot?

Thanks, cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 16:20, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram reply I'll talk to them. Oh, I almost forgot. Could you or another sysop talk to the owner of Cluebot on Wikipedia. It's their vandal bot. I think it would be beneficial if we could use it. Thanks, cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 16:43, 20 June 2009 (UTC)


Take a look at User:Terrorist's contributions. -- Graft   talk   contributions  06:24, 28 June 2009 (UTC)


Please check (and ban forever...) this user: Pope Boris Allen. he's done some vandalism on: The Incident, Parts 1 & 2, The Monster, Jacob and more...-- Sharon1234  Talk  Flashback  16:01, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

"Bob's image.... " guy is back as Special:Contributions/Bob_MASTURBATE. I'll spread the word to some other sysops as well to see who's avail rght now. - NEVERGIVEUP  Contribs  Talk  14:01, 16 July 2009 (UTC)


Can you check out my idea? it's been there a while... Roobydo  talk  contribs  06:42, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Renaming articles

I'm not sure how this works so that is why I'm asking. There are a couple of article names that have been nominated for renaming and after trying to do it myself, I realized that only admin's can change the name. Mapinguari has already been added to the Debunked theories page, but the name change on the article hasn't happened yet. Also, Last Humans (theory) has already been debunked. I'm going to put the theory on the Debunked theories page as well, but it also needs to be renamed to show continuity between all the other debunked theory pages. Is there a proper way to request a sysop look at the renaming discussion? If so, I apologize that I didn't do it that way, but I'm learning this process. I couldn't find it in Help:Contents. - NEVERGIVEUP  Contribs  Talk  20:11, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram reply Great, thanks for the help. - NEVERGIVEUP  Contribs  Talk  11:58, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

More vandalism

He's back again as Special:Contributions/Boberto el bob. I'll leave this message on some other Admin's page incase you don't see this right away. - NEVERGIVEUP  Contribs  Talk  12:47, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

New Spoiler Policy

I have created a new spolier/promotional material policy that I feel correctly addreses the issues at hand: titles, ignored discussions, and the fact that our motivation is contradictory to our policy. The policy is in two parts. The first part deals with spoilers and can be found here. The second part deals with promotional material and may be found here. I would like you to weigh in so improvements may be made before I submit it to be an official policy. Thanks! cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 17:02, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Possible Vandal

User:COOL has made several edits to articles adding references to "barefeet"[sic] and other references to characters bound/gagged/tied/etc. These are his only edits and I think we had a vandal do this a few months ago too so I wanted to report it just in case. Thanks.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  02:01, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Tom Friendly

It is his canon name and Lostpedia consensus is irrelevant. It was not displayed as a nickname like "Libby" or "Frogurt" were (namely, in quotes), which means that it has to be his real last name. If you refuse to accept Tom Friendly as his name, then you have to disregard the names Karl Martin and Elizabeth Smith, which are just as canon. This is not a matter for debate. --Golden Monkey 17:57, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

SysOp opinion

I don't know whether this has already been discussed, but could you and the other SysOps please weigh in on this? Thanks.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  21:21, 29 July 2009 (UTC)


User:Namasmarius2 Replaced the content of a number of pages with garbage, and deleted the content of some other pages. He also created this page with no content.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  08:50, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Don't worry, I got it. --Blueeagleislander 08:52, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Cleanup LP:Ideas

Lostpedia:Ideas needs to be cleaned up. Several discussions have been implemented/not implemented.

  • "Audio player/hosting" should go to fulfilled.
  • "Templates for Portal Images" should go to fulfilled. (See Template:Portal)
  • "Rollback guards" should go to fulfilled. (See "Mass User Revert")
  • "Collapsible Episode Navbox" should go to fulfilled.

Thanks! cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 17:04, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Saw your edits, good job! Can you look here and see how the template looks. Thanks! cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 17:48, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Speedy Delete

Lostpedia:Users The content doesn't belong there. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 18:35, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Another one. Marshall Surivor. Consensus to delete is here. Thanks! cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 19:32, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Fan Fiction Contest

During the hiatus the theme has been fan appreciation. And I thought what better way than to have a fan fiction contest. And what better place to have it then on lostpedia! There would be rules and challenges each week or two. We would write 18 episodes each has to be with in the same story arc Ben can't die one episode and then come back to life the next one. I really need an admin to support me on this idea and all the feed back I have gotten is positive. Please help! --BenKilledDharma 00:34, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Eloise redirect

Hi, I was just wondering why typing in "Eloise" redirects you to a disambiguation page instead of Eloise Hawking's article. I realize that there are indeed two characters on the show that have Eloise as a name (Hawking and the rat), but I imagine the number of people who search for "Eloise" and mean the rat is very small. I feel the same way about this as I would if there were a redirect to a disambiguation page for "Tom" - sure, there are characters such as Tom Brennan and Claire's ex-boyfriend Thomas, but chances are, people searching for "Tom" are looking for Tom Friendly. Thanks. Gefred7112 19:23, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Greetings --

Is something strange going on with the autosig function? Or the SUBST function. I made an edit at Talk:Benjamin Linus and using the sig button there (and here) did not cause my sig to show. Thanks--{{SUBST:User:Gaarmyvet/Autosig}} 15:22, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram reply Doesn't happen to me cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 20:41, September 24, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the hints. I had {{SUBST:User:Gaarmyvet/Autosig}} (with a capital "A") on my prefs page... It always worked before. Aarrgh! No need to answer.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 20:13, September 25, 2009 (UTC)

Possible Vandal

I can't tell whether User:Jacob194 is a vandal or just making misguided edits. Either way, I thought a SysOp might want to take a look.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  07:11, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Dealt with. Gave a tempban, mostly subtle/possibly misguided stuff, except this. --Blueeagleislander 07:19, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Remove picture, please


I've had a request from the actress to remove File:5x06_Nalini.jpg from the wiki -- could you please remove the image from the pages that use it, and delete it? She has offered to provide a replacement image for you to use, and I'll direct her to contact you for that. Thanks! — Catherine@Wikia (talk) 23:59, October 14, 2009 (UTC)

The image has been deleted. Thanks for notifying me. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 00:05, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
It's my understanding that the replacement image is the actress' headshot, which is not appropriate for the character page. I have restored the file while it's under discussion.    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 22:31, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

Hello CTS,

Here it's Gisela, reporter for the brazilian magazine Superinteressante. I'm writing an article about lost mysteries for our special issue about Lost and would be very happy to interview you about this. Would you have time for that this week or the next one? What I need is an interview by phone or skype. It's only about your personal opinion on the series and your guesses for the next season. My e-mail is

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Gisela Giblanco 23:34, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Vandal or Sloppy?

You might want to look here: User:Lostededed. The user has cited a bunch of "non-productive" categories.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 02:35, November 26, 2009 (UTC)


Hey CTS i think User:Golden Monkey needs to be told what exactly are spoilers. He thinks its ok to list a character as deceased because it was confirmed in an article with the producers. Now a lot of people arent sure of he/shes fate and are trying very hard to stay in the dark regarding s6 and i dont think its fair to post this type of info on a site that is supposed to be spoiler free. Maybee hell listen to you. thanks
