Hi guys - sorry for the late reply! Any questions I had had actually been answered before on the community managers blog post and a question my friend has asked but was answered. I do look forward with working with you guys and communicating any issues and problems that arise here :)
I'm pretty sure Soljakilla89 is inventing characters he then fill the pages he creates on this wiki with (with the exception of the Batman Rapist page). These pages (which are, moreover, not supported by sources) are:
- Man in the Suit (the name is from the TV series "Person of Interest", which similarly portrays a vigilante)
- Cassius (this character is from a Richard Gere spy movie: "The Double")
- Stopwatch Gang (the gang and image are from a 2016 bank robbers movie named "Marauders", only the name is taken from a real criminal gang which committed bank robberies in the 70s)
Don't know if this is some kind of April Fool's Day prank or something, but the characters are all fake. I personally think these pages should be deleted as they do not contain real information. I couldn't find anything on the net to support the reported facts. Maybe Soljakilla89 should give some explanations.
The Cassius page was don't by someone else whereas the other too are from Soljakilla98. I'm giving the former user 24 hours to produce an explanation whereas I'm giving the latter the benefit on the doubt and give some hard fact articles. However if he falls to respond in 24 hours I will be deleting those pages.
Artyom99 (the creator of the Cassius page) is a some sort of "prank accomplice" of Soljakilla89. He supports his pages and creations claiming they are real, while he knows very well they are fakes. I think he should be given the 24 hours ultimatum too.
Now, if you say you are SURE Cassius existed (even if only a myth) and your father worked on him, i'll trust you. I'm not so sure for what concerns the other pages.
Nah don't sweat it. Better late than never right? Anyways it's done. Now if you're ok with it, i'd like to make a list of my ideas, and i'd like for you to to simply put "Yes" or "No" for each. You ready for it?
Homicide Terminology (for the different kinds of murder like seria/spree killing or for my other homicide pages)
Real Life Hitmen
Real Life House Cleaners
Real Criminal Organizations
Oh and would it also be cool if you could rename the "Real Institutionalized Criminals" to "Institutionalized Real World Criminals"? I would do it myself but the rename button that normally appears in the edit menu isn't there. It would just sort of line-up better with the Deceased and Incarcerated categories. Wouldn't you say? If i come up with anymore i'll let you know.
Real Proxy Killers - NOT SURE. Will think about it.
Real Angels of Death - DECLINED. The title of angel of death in my opinion is too ambiguous to any serial killer so I'm not sure.
A category for criminals active before the 19th century (haven't thought of a name, maybe "Ancient" or "Historic" criminals) - APPROVED. This is a very good idea. Maybe you can call it Pre-20th Century Criminals.
Real Suicides - APPROVED.
Incarcerated Real World Criminals - APPROVED. Are you sure we don't have this category or some variation of it? Because if we don't then damn we do need this! Count both living and dead criminals.
Real Prolific Killers - DECLINED. Serial and prolific are interchangeable.
Criminals mentioned by season (like "Criminals Referenced in Season number" and so on) - APPROVED. The title you said is good despite being rather long but this imo is a great category.
Survivors (characters who have survived an attempt on their lives) - APPROVED. Absolutely.
Killers (like a in-show counterpart to the "Real Life Killer", for killers of all classifications on the show) - APPROVED. The only condition for this category is that it can't be used to categorize our unsub pages. Simply have our existing kille pages (serial, proxy, etc) listed as subcategories.
Unknown Fates (for characters who's fates are not revealed, like Bruno Hawks) - APPORVED. Brilliant category
a category for criminals not yet mentioned or referenced (like Moses Sithole or Daniel Camargo) - APPROVED. At first I thought you meant criminals who are in upcoming episodes or like unseen criminals? If you meant the latter I also approve of a category called "Unseen Criminals". However for this purpose I agree but I can't seem to come up with a good title for the category.
Homicide Terminology (for the different kinds of murder like seria/spree killing or for my other homicide pages) - APPROVED.
Real Life Hitmen - APPROVED
Real Life House Cleaners - NOT SURE. Can you elaborate on this category?
Real Criminal Organizations - APPROVED.
As for renaming the "Real Institutionalized Criminals" to "Institutionalized Real World Criminals", I'm afraid the renaming button doesn't appear for me. An option I have in my mind is you creating the category, and adding it to the corresponding criminals' pages but taking off the Real Institutionalized category.
Any category I'd like to recommend are Hate Crime Perpetrators.
My apologies for invading, but would you mind if I'd help you with some of these categories because in all honestly, I've been meaning to talk to you about adding some of these categories for a while, but I've been a bit busy. I'm about to graduate school.
Hey, not to butt in or anything, and i certainly mean no offense to either of you, but i was really referencing that i make all the categories. I certainly appreciate you wanting to help, but i think i can handle this.
Real Suicides is done. Oh and i'm so sorry i forgot to answer your questions. No we don't have that category. And i do mean criminals who already have an article, but haven't been mentioned or referenced (yet, so i guess when the show ends i guess we can just delete those pages and the category). And what i mean is like the "House Cleaner"type- , like Ronald Weems or Charles Holcombe. Peter Sutcliffe is a real house cleaner (he killed prostitutes in order to clean the streets). And the Killers category is supposed to have all the criminals (or killers at least) but sure i'll put the pathologies in the sub categories space.
Nah i'm fine. I've got this. Though you are certainly welcome to pick up on anything i might have missed (which i probrably did). And if you have any category ideas feel free to present them to him and i'd be happy to help you with them (if you want it).
So hey i haven't updated in a while (since i figured you were tired of that), but it appears i've hit a bit of a roadblock. It seems there's already Survivors and Real Life Child Killers categories. And it appears both of them are candidates for deletion. If one of you could just delete those to make room for the new ones that would be fantastic, Also there are two clone categories of the Stubs one (Article Stubs and Stub) and a Real Criminals one (clone of Real World Criminals). Just thought i'd let you know.
You can simply remove the candidates for deletion and make them.
Also, I have been meaning to talk about categories lately. I am personally grateful we are one of a handful of wikis I know and seen who has such a carefully done and accurate web of categories, especially given how many categories we are. However, given we certainly have core categories that are of utter importance like Serial Killers, Black Widows, Season X Criminals, Psychopaths, etc we have begun venturing into other less important categories simply for the sake of thinking we need more categories. Some pages already have almost 25 categories and in my opinion its quite overkill. Soon I fear we will be bringing incredibly trivial categories like "Blue-Eyed Criminals," "Blonde Victims," and "30-39 Year-Old Criminals". For now I believe the category system is quite detailed already and there is no need for more. You can continue to make the categories I approved above, but henceforth unless you truly feel you have an important category that's worth adding, please feel free to share and I will weigh my opinion in. Otherwise, I think instead of doing more categories I suggest making new pages, such as terminology pages or real world criminal pages.
I still just think it would be easier to just delete them (out with the old and in with the new, if you know what i mean). I know we are (and i am certainly proud to have taken part in that expansion, glad to be of service). Oh and i certainly have no intentions of making such ridiculous categories like that (i know what lines to cross, at least i think, besides i would have asked first anyway). But if you truly wish for me to cut back (or just outright stop) i understand and i will respect your wishes.
The Episode Tribute seems to be missing from the Season Eleven portion of the episode navigation box. I don't know how to edit the box, and Fashionable said that you were the person to talk to to fix this issue. Would be much appreciated if you taught me how to fix the box.
Sorry for the really late reply. In order to edit the template, go to Template:EpisodeNavbox and it will take you to the navbox. Click the edit button and scroll all the way down to the later season's episodes. As the navbox is up to date (thank you to the admin who did that), all you simply need to do to add a bullet point and then a link to the next episode and click save.
Hi there Echo Spy. I notcied that the articles for Luke's girlfriend Lisa Douglas and Supervisory Special Agent Andrew Mendoza (a love interest for Emily Prentiss according to some sources) have not been created yet. Just wanted to let you know. Yes I could create the articles myself, but I don't want to risk breaking the rules somehow and get banned from this site as a result.
You wouldn't - banning people from this site would be petty if it was a reason like making a needed page. We are a heavily structured wiki but we do follow the classic character page layout. Any page you make will be further edited as normal but can be revised or built more if it needs to.
