Hi, welcome to Total Drama Island Fanfiction wikia! Thanks for your edit to the Total Drama Island (fanon version) page.
I realize that you're still quite new here, but I've noticed that so far you haven't done anything here but work on your own story. That's all very well, but there are advantages to getting involved on the social side as well. Commenting on stories, joining blog discussions, and generally getting to know people will help drive traffic to your own stories, because people are more likely to check out stories written by people they know.

Hi there! I'm Lulucas777 yo can call me Lulu if you want. Can you please tell me how you made your character Haliee? Please and thank you in advance! :) --Lulucas777 Team Gwen all the way!!!! 01:26, April 21, 2011 (UTC)
I noticed your conversation with Nalyd. On that topic, I would say that your TDI reimagining is probably a PG story, although a case could be made for it to be PG-13. The death scene is the main wildcard. Speaking of which, although contestants have died in OC competition stories, yours may be the first TD reimagining on the wiki to kill off a canon character. (It won't be the last though--my TDI reimagining will also kill off at least one canon character.)
On an unrelated note, thanks for your support of TDI-G&S on the Featured Story ballot. Based on the length of time you've been registered here, and the comments you made with your votes on the Featured Story and Featured Image pages, I'm guessing that you were reading stories for a while as an IP or under your TD Wiki username before registering here. Speaking of which, if you don't mind my asking, was there a particular reason why you registered here under a different name than you had on the TD wiki? Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O!

I presume your main purpose in nominating your collage for Featured Image is to draw attention to your story (although I'm sure you wouldn't object if the image itself won) so your "stump speech" should mention your story and provide a link to it. This is an accepted way to publicize a story. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 05:23, May 16, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the tips on Total Drama Action (Lens Way) here are my answers to your suggesttions
1.You said my dialouge in it was confusing what do you mean
2.I cant do more than 100 lines cause thats my record and well if I write for too long I get kinda bored
3.And I'll try to describe things outside of the dialouge
4.And what do you mean by actualy finnishing it

A couple of things regarding your TDI reimagining (and yes, I'm still reading it even though I haven't commented on the last few chapters): first, I've noticed that some of your grammar and phrasing is rather odd, although this is more noticeable in the early chapters. I see on your User page that you're Brazilian. Am I correct in assuming that English isn't your first language? If that's the case, then it would explain a lot, if Portugese has a different grammatical structure. Second, on a more specific note, "Hide and be Sneaky" has Heather speaking a line, but it doesn't appear to be a dream sequence or anything similar. From the context, I'm guessing that the line in question was supposed to be Hailee's. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 03:27, May 20, 2011 (UTC)
FYI, Oppose votes on the Feature ballots must give a reason. If an Oppose vote doesn't give a reason, the admins may delete it. Support votes don't require a reason, but most people give one.

No problem. =P It came to mind when I was making that, plus it was excellently written. It also encourages me to read your TDI fic, too (I'll be honest, I didn't at first cause it was a big block of words before you learned how to seperate dialouge and stuff and I was a little annoyed by your advertising of it, and by the time I gained interest reading it all seemed too daunting. xD). =P ~ Problem? ;D 19:56, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
Like all the lines, obviously. ;P Seriously though, thanks. =P I'm proud of TDI-T2, not cause it's really good or anything (although I conider it good, I am the author after all =P) but so far it's my only competition story I can get to the third chapter in and still like writing for it. xD =P ~ Problem? ;D 20:11, July 2, 2011 (UTC)
im just replying to your comment, actually it does, in the second chapter characters from the show come out in it, you just have to wait till i post it :)220.127.116.11 23:33, July 10, 2011 (UTC)
I have indeed. I haven't decided when to nominate myself, but I plan to do it by September. I would run this month, but there seems to be some pretty stiff compeition. I.E, the users from that three-way tie a while back. Don't be a rainbow, be a flag. -Lady Gaga. 20:29, July 13, 2011 (UTC)
Oh gosh, I'm not quite sure if there's anything you can do. VH was at the perfect time to capture the Wiki's consiousness. It was one of the first one-shots, one of the first non-comp fics, one of the first stories with character death, it broke ground, and I guess that's why it became so popular.
Nowadays, almost everything on this Wiki gets drowned out, and I'm definitely no exception. I have to resort to near-advertising as well. However, saying that you're writing on on your blog might get a few readers.
Expanding on TDIRM's comments, Violet Hill was written when the wiki community was far smaller than it is now, there were only about 20 edits a day, and everyone read and commented on everyone else's stories. The little band that was active during this period is now known as the "veterans", and this period has been described as the wiki's Golden Age.
Nowadays, it's much harder for a new author to attract attention. A good way to do so is to nominate something for Featured Story, which I see you've done with Ordinary Knives. (This was how I was able to get Legacy noticed when I had been on the wiki only a few weeks and was almost totally unknown.) Although Knives is unlikely to ever win, due to the (not unreasonable) belief that longer works take more effort, a quixotic nomination is an accepted way to publicize a story. Besides, you never know when the stars will align. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 05:51, July 15, 2011 (UTC)
Hi, Jkl. I'm Lulu. I know we don't talk much, but I was wondering if you could make an elimination chart for Total Drama Super Stars and Total Drama Island: Take II? Please? If so the teams for TDI: Take II are Andre, Bianca, Delilah, Katy, Mac, Hannah, Penny, Gabi, Mickey M., Lukas, and Omar are the Screaming Buffalos. The team color is blue. And Ana, Charlie, Eleanor, Felix, Jess, Julianne, Justin, Liam, Patty, Ryan, and Tony are the Killer Catfish. The team color is purple. For TD Super Stars the teams are on the page and you can pick the colors. Sorry if I'm bothering you, but I just want to get it done. Thanks if you cam. --Lulucas777 17:20, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks. Oh and BTW, I'm Brazilian too. Except I don't live in Brazil. --Lulucas777 17:25, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
Uh, I made a mistake. I forgot to remove Selena. She's not a character anymore. Brittany replaces Selena. sorry. It's my fault. Could you fix it? --Lulucas777 18:04, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, one more thing. The Screaming Buffalos team color is a Yale-Blue. That's an actual color. I just found that out. --Lulucas777 18:09, July 24, 2011 (UTC)
I actually hadn't seen the Wiki-lympics since I haven't been on long enough in the past week or so to actually check out any blogs. I read it over and I'd love to do the art challenge, except for the fact that it's held mostly through Chatango and IRC. I'm not exactly fond of things like that, and I'm not sure I'll be able to be in the chat at certain times because I'm usually online in the middle of the night. If I were to do it, I would probably need somebody else to be there to represent me in the chats and I'm not sure that would work out well.

Hi, I needs you to get your newsletter stuff up soon or at least by the end of the month, once you are done post it here at my wiki ( http://webly.wikia.com/wiki/ ). Just create a page about the subject you are doing and add a 'September 2011' to the end and you're good. So, don't forget. :P --HINT:A AWESOME USER,that loves Chatango and Chatting but wonders,what's with Cyan? 23:19, August 17, 2011 (UTC)
I'm thinking you should ask SG what questions he's going to ask himself and it should be at least ten. You should write them down on a document and save it just in case he wins which is very probable. --HINT:A AWESOME USER,that loves Chatango and Chatting but wonders,what's with Cyan? 23:27, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

I'll still up for it! I'll add a new chapter to Total Drama: Pointless and Random soon (hopefully today). Also I did see your third blog post before reading the message (Are you psychic too :P). I'ma comment on it. Thanks for messaging me and remembering I wanted to do a chapter for TD: PaR. Oh, come on. I bought KFC. It pretends to be southern, you pretend to be southern.

Yeah, that was kind of fail. XD BTW, the satirical blog posts are epic. :P It was NP to support Ordinary Knives. I loved the story. :) BTW, I think the only reason it's R is because of profanity. Otherwise, I would make it PG-13. SG has a habit of changing his siggy once a month. 02:33, August 20, 2011 (UTC)
...Pretty cool, I guess. I didn't really think I would win, and I sure didn't know this Newslette would pop up. XD
...My stories are popular? XD I guess they're moderately popular. :P My favorite one has to be Total Drama: Paradise Beach. The first few chapters kind of sucked, but it was the first compeition story I wrote and actually showed to other people, unlike those script format things I jotted down in notebooks. XD
To read, comment, and write stories, I guess. I was reading anonymously for a few months... since like May 2010, I think. XD The first time I saw the wiki was like in Summer 2009, I think.
...Not at all. XD I expected to get like 5-7 supports, and not to win. XD I doubted I would even get into fourth place, let alone win. :P Then, I check and go, "...Are these people crazy?" XD
Webly or Lindsay, I guess. They deserved just as much, if not more, than I did. Pretty much all if the candidates deserved, I guess. If they didn't, they wouldn't have ran. XD
I have this on my userpage, but I guess I'll repeat it. XD Probably Total Drama Reality, Total Drama: Tiki Jungle, Blonde Date, and Ordinary Knives. (*is totally not kissing up to you with that last one*)
...Rebecca Black. It was REBECCA BLACK.
Um... be epic and don't ask weird questions. :3
Not really, at the moment. To get a Featured Story and Character eventually, I guess.
I notice you're changing the Jkl's TDI format so it's the "br" format. Well, let me inform you of an easier eay to do that: Put "<poem>" at the top of the chapter, "</poem>" at the bottom, and remove all the double enters from it.

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!! :DDD I'm sooo HAPPY!! :D (Zaraz chyba języka w gębie zpomnę XP) Oo so here are the answers for the interview :)
Why did you decide to nominate that picture for FI?
I decieded to put this picture, becouse I worked on it about 2 hours and I thought that it turned out good. Izzy, not the tree -,-' And I hoped that many guys would enjoy a hadmade picture :D
Did you expect to get so many support votes?
Actually no. I was suprised, becouse I wasn't there for few days and when I saw that many supports (and one oppose :P) I was totally shocked :)
It's the first time in nearly a year a hand-drawn image wins FI. How do you feel about that?
Well, I'm happy that people are still enjoing traditional drawings :)
In your opinion, which image in the ballot should have won if yours hadn't?
Man, there was a lot of great pictures! For example the pic with Bridge and Sadie or Julie's character image! I was sure that the Reddy's picture will win! :)
What's your favorite bit in the whole drawing?
Emm... XD Izzy's pants, I gusse. I like how they turend out :) I really enjoy drawing Izzy :D She's got intresting shapes eg. eyes, eyebrows and head.
☺ Let's SMILE! xD ☻ 21:10, September 30, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I realize your asking questions for interviews right now but for FC, the featured character is the person who's supposed to be doing the interview. Sorry for not clarifying that. So, could you change those questions quick please? --HINT:A AWESOME USER,that loves Chatango and Chatting but wonders,what's with Cyan? 21:12, September 30, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the interview, now, onto the questions.
Well, I don't think that's fully the reason. If the story is older and popular, then it's a classic story. I think since it already was popular, then that's why it won. It also won because Sprink's stories weren't in the running. XD Seriously, though, I'm glad that Craziness won. I'm a little saddened that Production got fewer votes, but hey! Craziness is shorter, and I believe that the characters, while aren't amazing, are better than Production's. I guess that can be the reason. That, and nostalgic properties. That's a powerful tool. But alas, I digress.
My favorite character? Hm... I'm not going to say. But the character will be in my All-Star series, and I'll announce who it is when I announce it. Just wait and see!
Oh, I could make it tons better. Now, I actually know more about description and characterization. While in Production both of those weren't very good, in Fiji, I believe it's much better. I just have to slow down and remind myself about showing what's happening instead of telling it. XD If you haven't guessed, Fiji's my guinea pig of sorts for description. XD
In the whole story? In my honest opinion, it has to be the finale. While for some, it was disappointing, I feel as though it really showed that I grew as a writer.
Hm... in the ballot? It's a tie between two: Ordinary Knives and A Person. Ordinary Knives is extremely well-written, and A Person is just an awesome showing of Heather. It was nice to see Heather portrayed in a positive light.
Did you plan to win Featured Character?
- Umm, yeah, totally. That weird Nyan guy was also running, but everyone hates him, so it wasn't hard. There were also some characters from other seasons, but that wasn't a problem.
You beat Julie, who has recently been voted the best character in the whole wiki. Why do you think that happened?
- Uh, I always thought Julie was a little weird. But yeah, I think it was just luck. And I was the best liked character in the competition, apparently.
Is there something you regret having done in the competition?
- Totally. Almost killing that Vincent guy... That's why I got eliminated.
What were the best and worst things about being in Total Drama Revolution?
- Best would be getting my first boyfriend, Tricky. He's so cute, and funny, and... Anyways, the worst would be making enemies with all the peeps on my team just because I dated Trick and almost killed that Vincent kid. I think Trick and that silent chick are the only people who like me now.
What are your future goals?
- To make it to the All-Stars season, (which I probably won't) to have a healthy relationship with Trick, and to be a good Featured Character!
Featured Quote rules
One of the rules I added to the Featured Quote page today states that nominated Quotes should be formatted exactly as they are in the story. This means, among other things, that the dialogue in your FQ nomination shouldn't be in boldface unless it appears that way in the story. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O!

I had to delete your Featured Quote nominee for length. I might have been able to let it go if it had only one or two paragraph breaks, but it had six.

Something I just realized: even if I hadn't deleted your Hailee quote and "Aunt Lib" passage from the Featured Quote ballot for other reasons, I would have had to delete them because you had already nominated the "Lindsay's Limitation" quote, and the rules say you can only nominate one quote per story.

I think a period of writer's block is a good time to do revisions, because revising an existing chapter takes less creative energy than producing one from scratch. I think it would be a great help to both your story's reputation and the traffic it gets (not that we have any way to monitor traffic anymore) because first impressions are important. In addition to improving originality, rewriting the first two chapters would surely improve their phrasing. When you started your story, it was pretty clear that English is presumably not your first language, but your phrasing has improved considerably as your story has progressed.
Speaking of your stories, this is a fairly minor point, but I think Ordinary Knives is properly characterized as a short story, rather than as a one-shot. OK has several scene changes (in the form of flashbacks, although that's neither here nor there), and that's not really a one-shot structure. A one-shot not only has no chapter/section breaks, but also normally deals with only a single scene. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 04:12, October 11, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah. I'd love to do that. I have to admit though, fanfic-wise it would probably be at the bottom of my priority list. I won't neglect it though and it will probably be easy for me to do every other chapter. Do you have any ideas in mind?--Radicalm18 "Nice guys finish last, that's why I'll treat you like trash." 18:49, October 15, 2011 (UTC)
Oh yeah. I forgot you had mentioned your idea in the post. The only thing that confuses me is how we are going to make twenty "dorks", each with unique personalities, if they are all nerds. Also, you might want to tell me in chat what your ten contestants's stereotypes are so that I don't copy any of them.--Radicalm18 "Nice guys finish last, that's why I'll treat you like trash." 20:42, October 15, 2011 (UTC)
The reason I didn't make specific suggestions on how to improve your current FQ candidate was that your English writing skills have improved noticeably over the course of the story, so I didn't want to assume that you needed or wanted detailed direction. I figured that if you wanted help, you would ask for it. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 00:33, October 20, 2011 (UTC)

Although you're not actually one of my subscribers, I thought I'd let you know that I have posted LTDI's Fifth Night chapter. Ever wondered what you'd get if you turned a simple dodgeball match into a war epic? Fifth Night has an answer. This chapter also includes a scene that parodies the iconic first torture scene from Life After Lies. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 21:46, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
That's OK. I didn't know whether you'd read any of LTDI since its official launch, since I don't recall your ever having commented on it (although I know you've commented on some of the previews) and I normally wouldn't bring a new chapter to your attention under those circumstances. The main reason I mentioned it to you this time is because I know you like LAL, and Fifth Night is the chapter with the LAL parody. By the by, the specific war epic in question is Homer's epic poem, The Iliad.
I, too, have fallen behind on my reading. Among other things, I haven't had a chance to check out the revisions you've made to your own reimagining, although I did recently read the rest of the triathlon chapter. And no, I'm not familiar with Community. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 22:43, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
Guess what? YOU'RE NOT CRAZY!! *dances terribly* I'm not merely a twisted extension of yourself! :D Anyhoo, nice to meet you (finally XD) and thanks for the TWE support! I'm really looking forward to revamping it, and I'll definately be considering Toad and Rhonda for collaborrators (hopefully I'll have a chance to look at their works over the weekend). Hip hip HOORAAAH!!!
Joke Quote campaign
On the FQ ballot, I've commented at length on the joke FQ nominee. I can't bring myself to vote for it, but I won't remove it unless the story it come from--an apparent dead fic that hasn't been updated in almost 3 years--gets deleted. If the joke quote remains eligible and actually wins, it will be Featured normally. If that causes FQ to lose all credibility, then so be it.
On a peripherally related note, I think it's time we got moving on the front page redesign, since there seems to be a good consensus for it. I think we can do this without the need to make you a temporary admin, which I don't have the power to do anyway. (One of the b-crats would have to do that if it's needed, since mere admins can't promote people to their own rank.) If the redesign is ready, you could copy it to a sandbox page on this wiki, copy in any new templates that it uses, and upload any needed images. Then, when all the component are ready, and the current Feature commentaries/links are added, I (or another admin) could simply paste the whole thing over the current main page lock, stock and barrel. One thing, though: For the Noncompetition Stories category, you currently have a scene from the Losers episode. That works reasonably well, but I'm wondering whether there might be another scene, from either the Losers episode or one of the Aftermath episodes, that works better.

Hey, JKL. I know you're working on the front page, so, can you get on chat for like five minutes? I want to tell you something. Keep calm...And may the odds be ever in your favor. 18:02, July 16, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, JKL!!! I'm a new admin, and I won Trey's thing! How'd your film do? I'm hoping you got to see the Olympics. I loved that "greetings!" from Rio. :D *hugs JKL* I'm glad you're around again! :) JustLittleOlMe Lil Jay JLOM Jay-Z Jay-cobb Jayneneh Lady Gideon 00:52, August 15, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you! I'm enjoying learning to be an admin. :) I'm glad you find out soon about how your film did, too. Even if it doesn't do as well as you'd hoped, I know from having film festivals here in Denver that the people who do get to present are thrilled that they were chosen to be in the festival. So congratulations on being presented! :D
I also understand how you felt about the Olympic 'Greetings from Rio', simply because I'm very critical of our U.S. presentations in multinational settings. I'm always worried about how other countries view us, and how we depict and view ourselves. I don't think of it as anti-patriotic, but it sometimes feels to me like Jingoism, which completely turns me off.
I absolutely adore the Olympics, and nearly all of the sports. Just not the intentional injury ones. Gideon and I enjoyed the swimming, gymnastics, track and field, pentathalon and decathalon together. And I also loved the equestrian, bicycling and beach volleyball--men and women.
Also, you're welcome! I love your incredible characterizations, and I had a lot of fun commenting on your characters, so I'm looking forward to your story. :D Thanks for being so creative. :) Jay JLOMThings turn out for the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out - John Wooden 07:10, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
I don't think I've mentioned this before, but your front page layout design is beautiful!! :D Thank you SO much for your input! The colors, design, and the disclaimer are wonderfully professional looking! *hugs* :) JustLittleOlMe Lil Jay JLOM Jay-Z Jay-cobb Jayneneh Lady Gideon 22:47, September 7, 2012 (UTC)
I don't know how often you're around, but a Polish Total Drama Island has linked our main page to their wiki, and would like us to do the same. I've told Red and Gid, but I figure you're the expert, so you should have a say, too. Thanks, and for all the details, just jump onto my talk page of today and a couple days back. :) Jay JLOMThings turn out for the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out - John Wooden 02:02, October 17, 2012 (UTC)
You're so sweet! And I hope everything is going great for you! :) The main reason I talked to you here was because I had no idea how to link stuff to the front page properly. Gid showed me yesterday, but I didn't want to "play" with it and accidentally mess it up. xDD Just edit. ;P Anyhow, I figured you had the most know-how of all of us on the front page, so you're the go-to guy for front page changes, imo. :) Great to see you here again! :D JustLittleOlMe Lil Jay JLOM Jay-Z Jay-cobb Jayneneh Lady Gideon 02:29, October 19, 2012 (UTC)I've adored your humor ever since Gid first showed me some of your work. This was long before I joined the wiki, so I've paid tribute to your fun by creating a very unique individual for you in my story. :) Also, I've been giving everyone here on the FF wiki who makes an appearance in my story an honorary Gull's Seal of Approval. :D This is in recognition of all your hard work in cleaning up Total Drama Island, since you're now one of the contributors! Thank you for appearing in my story, and I hope you make many more appearances! :) Jay JLOMThings turn out for the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out - John Wooden 06:44, November 2, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your vote for my Loonacy FQ nom! :D I try to keep these characters as "reality" based as possible, but for my most recent tale I've tried something different for the comedic aspects. Also to expand my writing styles. I'm really having fun writing it! :D Thanks for being a comedic writing inspiration! :D JustLittleOlMe Lil Jay JLOM Jay-Z Jay-cobb Jayneneh Lady Gideon 16:37, September 9, 2013 (UTC)
Regarding your Wiki Awards "Best Single Chapter" nominations, "The Cockroach' Tale" has two chapters, so you'll have to pick one. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 15:27, December 18, 2013 (UTC)
That was one of the most adorable and amusing Subscriber Notifications I've ever had the pleasure to read! xD I've been looking forward to Socially Awkward ever since I knew you were planning to write *more* of it. :) I can get past the R-rating easily enough if the cause for the R is justified. :) Thank you for your notice! :)
As for Christmas, we went to visit my family for Christmas Eve, and hosted Gid's family gathering on Christmas. Very fun, but I was rather glad when it was over, too. ;) Our weather was even fairly nice. Happily our hosting of the event was rewarded with a stuffed larder and pantry. We're still eating leftovers! ;D
My brother was over today after our Sunday church service, and Gid, Bro and I played a fun game of Iron Dragon, which is a fantasy railroad tycoon game. You build track to haul stuff from cities and towns, and whomever has 7 major cities and 250 gold first wins. Today I won. =) Of course, the play's the thing...worth doing.
I really hope you had a fabulous holiday season, too. =) I'm looking forward to reading your story, and I'm glad you're still having fun writing here. :D Jay JLOM The dump was so full that it had to refuse refuse. xD 08:50, January 6, 2014 (UTC)
It's no problem, I love your stories tbh! And I love this community so I feel okay with posting stuff about me, as long as it's not my exact location and full name I guess its okay to tell other users about myself :P If TDSA does have zombies later on in the story I guess I'll love it even more, and omg I totally agree with the sharp quality decline over the course of Under the Dome but I loved it nonetheless! I guess I'll get down to reading now, thanks for the Subscriber's Notice! :D The State of Your Life, Is Nothing More Than a Reflection of Your State of Mind. 18:02, January 6, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you JKL. I've actually been in luck, I've had some snowdays which have let me work on the Newsletter and be a bit more present. Though with finals coming up, I'm kinda worried about the newsletter of this month :p Though I do have two and half interviews.
Glad to see you're here! I mean, you've always been here but you seem more here recently. Thank you :) I enjoyed that interview like heck <3 And I sure as heck will! I'd love to infact. And I hope my comment is good, I really enjoyed TDSA and can tell it's going to be fantastic. Code Red. Code Red Mountain Dew. It was pretty popular back then. Some might argue that it's popularity usurped that of regular Mountain Dew. I would argue... 23:21, January 6, 2014 (UTC)
The reason why I'm close to 12K only a few weeks after my 10K blog (which I posted about a month after actually hitting 10K) is that Wikia changed the way our official edit counts are handled. Long story short, our deleted edits now count when they didn't before. When that change went into effect, my edit count jumped by 1400 overnight. That's also why serial story canceller Reddy saw his edit count jump from 8K to 22K. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 23:41, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
Great to see you back! =) Congratulations on your 2000th edit, and I'm hoping to get back to reading your awesome story!! :D Thanks for telling me. :) Jay JLOM We must polish the Polish furniture. xD 06:34, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
