Design

Which Wikia. It depends on what you want... You could just rip our CSS out and place it into yours, then changing things like the colours and the pictures, if you wanted. Mediawiki:monaco.css is where our CSS lives. Plkrtn 13:59, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Images

Where is the source that you get the images you upload to the site from? This is just for my own curiosity as they seem a lot more colourful and crisper than most of the pictures that are uploaded?

as Israeli user of lostpedia you might like to know that Hebrew lostpedia is now on air. hope you could find the time to help us grow and contribute  :)--sharon1234 (Talk) 17:46, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Upcoming episodes

Creating articles for future episodes (except the next episode to air) is a violation of spoiler policy. Lostpedia:Spoiler_Policy#Immediately_upcoming_episode_names. I know the info is out there and easy to get, but please avoid creating episode articles this early. Thanks --Gluphokquen Gunih 02:54, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

ban lifted

Hey ObiDan, I've unblocked you. I don't think you had bad intentions, or were intentionally disregarding the spoiler policy with your sub page. Just try and be a little more wary of LP:SP in the future Smiley emoticons smile. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 03:35, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

You should be able to edit now; I unblocked the IP address. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 04:00, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Aww, thanks...;) -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 04:02, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I was waiting on a reply from Santa, which wasn't forthcoming, but I'm glad to see you are unblocked! -- Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  11:56, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
I am still blocked, which is quite ridiculous. It's like I'm being punished for something I did not do on purpose, and even prevented on previous times. ObiDanKenobi5 03:09, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry that you were re-blocked. It isn't my decision, and the sysops are currently discussing this and trying to come to a consensus. I'm hoping you will be unblocked soon... it shouldn't be too long of a ban, don't worry. Smiley emoticons smile

Pics

Hey Obi, apologies we haven't been able to chat. I assume the issue has been resolved now anyway? A quick thing - I've seen you've been replacing a lot of high quality pics with lower quality ones on episode articles, etc. Seems like you're just thinking "this pic looks better", but when you're replacing them, it's making them of lesser quality. So I don't wanna say "don't change pics" cause sometimes there are lame ones and you want better ones - but just be aware that better quality is better. Cheers man, --Nickb123 (Talk) 18:38, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

OK got one, sorry for the delay. Before and After. Smaller pics, lesser quality. That sort of deal - unless the pics suck, changing all of them to suit your preference is a little iffy - you know what I mean? Cheers, --Nickb123 (Talk) 17:06, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Proxies

Thanks for the proxy box - it looks nice. I created the page for Hurley's guitar, but I was wondering if you had any images of it to upload on the page? Perhaps of one with Hurley swimming in the lake, and another of him carrying it on the plane or in the airport? Thanks :) meggie ~ Talk & contribs 19:49, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Army camp

How come you removed the images at Army camp? Robert K S (talk) 00:26, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I see, I don't know how to make it better but I did put the images back. Robert K S (talk) 01:25, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

List of DHARMA Initiative members

Hey, I just wana commend you for making/improving all those minis for the DHARMA list. Now it looks neater with all the pics the same size, nice job!--Mistertrouble189 20:36, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Yeah I know what you mean, they'd always annoy me and I'd try to remind myself to do it sometime later but never got to it haha. List of Others look good too, but my Other (LaFleur) mini looks bad so I'll do another. But now both lists look pretty good and not askew. Woot.--Mistertrouble189 22:11, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Images of "He's Our You"

Hey there,

You've been replacing images on that episode without any real justification. That led to some sort of image dispute which had been resolved on the talk page of that article through user consensus. Please don't replace images there again without first explaining your reasons on the talk page of that article. — Iimitk  T  C  03:28, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Duplicate Images

Hi, Dan. Just wanted you to know that you uploaded this image quite a few hours after I uploaded this one. Please check the image category for the episode before uploading images...it saves both file space and is also avoids duplicates. Thanks! -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  16:49, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Alright, thanks. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  20:14, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Lapidus

I noticed you keep switching images on Frank Lapidus page you have to remeber that images need to be under the correct categories so a pic of Frank discovering his co-pilot is dead belongs under the "back on the island" category not "After the Island" since that image did take place on island. --Czygan84 15:44, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Image Changes

I recently noticed several image changes to main picutres of several season 4 episodes. I wanted to let you know that your opinion alone doesnt give you the right to change them. When an image has been established for over a year if you want to change it you must mark it for disscusion and if people agree with you then you can change it but you cant just go through changing images that have been established for over a year. Not only that but next to every image you changed was a not saying not to change it. So i have reverted your edits and if you still want them changed then mark the episodes for image disscusion.  B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  22:58, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

You've also done this with the Richard Alpert page. Replacing images from season 3 with ones you like doesn't mean everyone agrees. In fact you replaced all the images in season 3 to your liking. I reverted the changes. If you feel your choices are better, argue so on the talk page before making changes. Also on the season 5 section you replaced the promotional image shot of Richard on his knees in front of Daniel to a screencap that shows him with Ellie with no emotional impact or anything of the sort. Just because something is newer doesn't mean it should overwrite an older image showing the same thing. -- Hamdo    [Talk] 04:06, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Duplicate images

Hey there. If you're going to upload images that are duplicates of ones already uploaded, could you go to the existing image page and click on "Upload a new version of this file" instead of just uploading it separately? It will replace the old image with the new one and avoids duplicates. Thanks. -- Graft   talk   contributions  19:08, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

The Incident

Hi. Please don't move the images in the Flashbacks section of "The Incident, Part 1". I know the code looks odd with them appearing in the wrong section, but it causes issues with the alignment of the subsection titles when you put them in the same section. Also please don't readd the brclears to the article. They were removed to fix complains of spacing issues brought up on the talk page (moving the images was done to accommodate the removal of the brclears). The article looks better this way, please see here before changing it back.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  03:11, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Re:Penny

The original picture was a million times better than the one you changed it to. Also while i got you the image you keep changing concerning follow the leader is from 5x15 not 5x16 it is a promotional picture from 5x15 and it better fits the episode than the picture of locke talking to his people. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  00:54, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

  • No you didnt prove anything its a PROMOTIONAL PIRCTURE from 5x15 that means it is usually off scene look it up online. You need to realize promotional picture are not screencaps they are usually taken not from the pov that we see so it is from 5x15. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  15:53, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Your in the wrong here weve been using that group of promotional pictures for 5x15 since it was first shown [[1]] so obviously a good number of users believe these ar promotional shots from 5x15 so this is it Ive given you ample opportunity to stop making these edits but obviously when it comes to images you make decisions on your own without disscusing them. From the above comments youve shown no respect to other users and make changes based on your own personal feelings. I dont want to edit war with you and this disccusion has gone nowhere as you refuse to admit your wrong. If you disagree then you can discuss it on the season 5 page as the picture i am reverting was the original and you are trying to make the change. For future refrence when you want to change an image you discuss it first and then make the change. This site is about user consensus not Obidankenobis opinion. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  19:58, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Hey just wanted to thank you for your nice comment on the season 5 talk page. Those pages are for disscusion so you state your opinion and then ILL state mine you dont need to state yours and then meanwhile tell other users my opinion while not only misrepresenting me but making my argument sound horribleand just bash me, I mean how is the fact that you belive i dont know what a promo picture is relevant to the argument. You state your opinion then ill state mine if you state both sides of the argument then obviously the disscusion is biased. I think you need to have a look at the guidelines page as to how exactly this wiki works because you have been a horrible user to work with throughout this whole process. And as i like to give users the benefit of doubt it has been hard not to report you for the way you handle your edits on the wiki. Ive tried to handles this polietly on my own but the shots you take at me as a user when presenting your arguments on talk pages are uncalled for. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  05:57, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Its alright my biggest thing with this whole argument was not just me comming at you but more of a long standing issue with tons of users on the wiki who change major images/pages without a disscusion, and trust me in the past I have come off in disscusions as a HUGE A-whole at time so i understand completely its all frustration about two opposing arguments. Hopefully the disscusion on the talk pages will solve these matters and you and I can continue to make contributions to the wiki. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  03:30, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Images

Hi Dan. Please don't upload new versions of files that are completely different versions from the original image (for example: File:1x05 JackIsland.png). Thanks. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  16:53, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

No problem. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  17:12, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Images again

Discuss image changes i know ive told you before but youve changed just about half of every episodes main image. A lot of the changes are good but a few are well not just drop a line on the talk pg get some opinions on these changes. I know you know the policy because weve been thorught this before but If i gotta tell you again im gonna report it. Just discuss it. I do like a lot of the changes though its just a few that dont seem better than the previous image-- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  03:26, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Two things, one i didnt point these changes out for no reason i mentioned that a few of the changes were not good. Secondly you said no one has complained or mentioned these changes well here ya go im mentioning and complaining about them. As far as which changes well i reverted the ones i felt were "wrong". Lastly this isnt just about the changes youre making now just look at your talk page youve been warned several times about the rules of images and changing them. Yet again you are disregarding the rules, you do not have to discuss every little change you make regarding an image but when you changing the main picture of an episode (some that have been up for years with "no complaints") then yeah you do need to discuss it. And what does the rewatch have to do with anything, oh you watched the episode so change an image that has been up for years thats like saying I saw Enter 77 two days ago so i guess i should rewrite the entire article. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  00:02, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
  • All i want is user input i may even be wrong. By the way if you want to get technical with your whole you only edited the images during the rewatch. Well not to be rude but thats bull because you edited Not in Portland, Stranger in a Strange land, Expose, and the glass ballerina dating back to June and i know the rewatch has gotten to s3 yet.e pics So be honest and just say you felt the pics needed to be changed instead of telling me you got an epiphany while rewatching the episode. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  04:34, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
I getcha if people knew how many episodes i watched for fun theyd think i was sick. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  17:17, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Man in Black Photo

A blur! Nice. Should have thought of that. --Cul-de-zack 01:29, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Green vs Blue

There have been disscusion about colors and it was decided that we use the same color scheme throughout the site so do not remove blue from alternate time line regardless of what you think. It can be disscused but we need to not confuse people. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  19:39, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

I have no idea where it is discussed your gonna need to find that ( not to mention every portal uses the same color scheme) However how on earth would being specific and keeping with the colors we have always used confuse people?? Have a look at the talk pg on the portal, people are already confused about why they are green, they need to be blue or you can bring it up on the talk pg. But changing the colors scheme on one page while every other page on this site uses the same scheme would be absolutely be confusing. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  19:45, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
Heres your link [[3]] it needs to be changed back for now. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  20:08, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
Seriously, you ask for a link and i give you a link and you ignore it, it doesnt matter when it ws disscused it was decided all portals will use the same color system. Heres how your argument works for example lets say miles and frank both die, acordding to your system on the Kahana portal we would change deceased to green and get rid off all the other colors becuase they wouldnt be needed. That would make no sense. -- B1G CZYGS  Talk  Contribs  20:20, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Portal pics

I've seen you've added some new portal pics to Portal:Mysterious that fit quite well and wanted to ask you for a favor. I'm starting a portal for companies and organizations on the show see User:Orhan94/Portal:Companies and Organizations and I wanted to ask whether you would like to help me by cutting and resizing portal pics for the various company logos for which we don't have a portal pic. See Template:Nav-Companies for a rough list of companies that would be featured on the portal and for whom we would need logo portal pic. I'm planing to use only companies for which we've seen logos (either on screen or on ARG websites). I hope it isn't a problem and I'm looking forward to working with you on the portal if you agree to participate. --Orhan94 16:48, February 21, 2010 (UTC)

Portal pics

Hey, I need your help again. This time I'm making a portals for the cast and crew members and I would really appreciate if you helped me by cutting and uploading pictures for the needed cast and crew members (except for the fews that have their portal pics already because of the interviews portal). Cheers and thank you. --Orhan94 01:43, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Ab Aeterno

If you are the one who keeps changing the image to the one in the jail cell, I'm the one who is changing it back. I did give a reason and it's on the discussion page. You can't just change the image whenever you want to without conferring with others. (Kdc2 05:35, March 27, 2010 (UTC))

Image of the twins

  • Obi - I wonder why you favor a lower resolution, blurry copy of the Twins after birth to a better quality, more close up picture of them. As far as the content MiB in tears as opposed to grimacing doesn't seem to be much of an advantage. what do you think?    Charles Kane     talk  contribs   email   02:48, May 13, 2010 (UTC)

Could you explain your reasoning, please? Thanks.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 21:02, May 13, 2010 (UTC)

Images:The End

Obi - I reverted the image of Sayid and Shannon coz the one you used have both Shannon and Sayid in compete darkness, no features can be seen at all. Not good IMO. Wonder if you could get closer to the one I put up which shows both Shannon and Sayid's faces very nicely. That would be great. Removing watermarks on your other images!    Charles Kane     talk  contribs   email   11:21, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
