To fill you in

Took me a while to realise you could use the normal editor instead of the stupid Rich Text editor. Well, we are waiting for a newere database dump so we can move content over to ShoutWiki. The newest was a few days old unfortunatley and I knew Kingcjc had done a lot of work on crew pages since. I have started welcoming users at ShoutWiki using a template with red links unfortunately. Feel free to make an account there, it will have all the same details if you make it with the same name including edit count. Thanks, Solar Dragon 14:16, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

OK. Thanks for that Solar. I'll make an account there now. Effluvium 15:12, October 10, 2010 (UTC)


Hey, can ask you thoughts on the template seen at the bottom of here. Thanks ----- It's Magic - Kingcjc 10:28, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. Yeah, the template looks pretty cool! Are you thinking of changing the current template, when the move happens, to this one? I take it that you're staying here? Effluvium 10:35, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I was planning to change it if no one disagrees and I shall be here still :) ----- It's Magic - Kingcjc 10:41, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, OK. Cool :) Effluvium 10:42, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
The New Wikisimpsons is currently developing a new template as well, here. I spent ages making that one :D --Smiley12 was here at 02:44, October 27, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Background image

I would give it a go, but im afraid my computers died and so I have to use a laptop with practically no memory on, so I can't download and use programmes like that at the mo. ----- It's Magic - Kingcjc 22:11, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

Seems like you are suffering from something I did a while ago and no one noticed. :P Part of my plan to draw people away, use a colour that looks like crap to go with a crap skin! Why don't we use this image instead? :P ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 23:08, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
OK, thanks Kingcjc. Solar, I'm not trying to turn into a Wikia staff member now or anything, but, please stop messing around with the wiki. And, that picture you linked to isn't funny it's just offensive. Just because Family Guy can take the mick out of AIDS, doesn't mean everybody has to. Me and Kingcjc have decided to stay here, and are making plans to improve the Simpsons Wiki. If you feel ShoutWiki is a better host and your wiki will be better, well, we'll see. You've made your decision to move, we've made our choice to stay. Lets just leave it as that for now. Effluvium 23:16, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
I'll do the image for this wiki. I also wish you guys the best for the future as this will be my last edit here. --Smiley12 was here at 07:31, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
Done. If you want me to make them blend into each other just asks. --Smiley12 was here at 07:51, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I didn't make the image. I was offered it by someone else. I still think it is stupid to split up the community. We should all move together. Once we become the better wiki, I hope that you decide to come too. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 08:54, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and the new background image looks even worse than the green/brown crap colour too. The lines don't even match up on the top and bottom! ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 08:56, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
OK, Solar. Sorry I snapped. I know you feel strongly against Wikia for all the hassle thats been caused by the new skin. And, if this wiki does go down hill, I hope the users who decided to stay are still welcome to join the ShoutWiki wiki? If that does happen, that is... Effluvium 10:57, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, sure. Although you will not get your admin rights back straight away. You will need to work your way up again and then apply again I'm afraid if you do that. Don't worry about us not being better, I have plans. I already have a sort of agreement with the Infosphere too. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 11:11, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
Agreement? Willing to share what this agreement is about? :) Effluvium 11:13, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
Solar asked one of the admins of The Infosphere to make the new Wikisimpsons an affiliate of The Infosphere. — TheHomer (TalkContributions) 14:04, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Effluvium 15:05, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
Hi there, i hope that's what you wanted :), if not, then you can just use the "Previous versions" dropdown in the theme designer to go back to your old skin — Game widow 22:26, November 7, 2010 (UTC)
That's perfect! Thank you so much! :) Effluvium 17:22, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Admin rights

You had admin rights all along. I have made it so your name is yellow. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 17:08, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Oh, really? Well, thanks! It's great to be back! :) Effluvium 18:06, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Simpsons Comics

Me and Blackadder (Kingcjc) were discussing this over IRC a short while ago. We think that most comics should be canon but some, such as the THOH comics, are non-canon. We need a proper discussion about this though. Also, I prefer the talk pages over boards so if you contact me on my talk page in future, that would be good as I get the message straight away instead of checking the main page or my email to find out about it. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 12:17, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

OK, it's just I was trying to re-organise Sideshow Bob's page and was wondering if the "comics" section would go in the Non-canon appearances section of the article? And alright, talk pages it is! :) Effluvium 12:25, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

☆The Crystal Homer Award☆

Much appreciated, thanks Solar Effluvium 14:55, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Quick Grammar Tip

Titles of TV shows and books only need to be italicized. They don't need to also be enclosed in quotation marks. -- Mythigator 22:30, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

OK, thanks for that tip - I didn't know this. You truly learn something everyday! :P Effluvium 15:57, 31 January 2011 (UTC)


Saw you editing Wikia. What was that all about? The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 17:42, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I went through a brief period of editing over there and trying to see if it could work. I was also interested in trying out the new editor. Forget it. I have returned to the light! :P I'm here. And I'm here to stay. My exams are over and done with, and I'm looking forward to making some more useful edits here. Sorry about that. --Effluvium 21:13, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I love how you ruined the infobox and deleted a couple of pages before returning though :P ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 21:38, 11 July 2011 (UTC)


Hi, I've noticed that you have not been very active lately and have decided that to make way for possible new admins who would be more active and use their powers, I am asking you to do two things. Firstly, become more active. Secondly, explain why you should keep the powers. I don't like to do this but we can't have so many "active" admins who aren't actually active. If you don't think you will become more active, please tell me so I can change your status to semi-active or even inactive. Thanks, The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 14:23, 17 August 2011 (EDT)

Hi Solar. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to this message - I've been away from a computer for the last few days. I'd like to apologize for my inactivity. However, I do plan on starting editing again, I've just been focusing my efforts on other projects around the web. I would like to continue to work on the episode articles (make them uniform, add more information etc.) and I don't need admin rights to do this. So, if you have several future admins lined up, it is your decision if you want to remove my rights and pass them on to someone else. It is up to you. But, yes, to answer your question, I do plan on editing more in the future. Thanks! --Effluvium 10:59, 23 August 2011 (EDT)
I won't bother with removing your rights. Several of our admins have gone inactive or semi-active lately so I might look into promoting someone else but not just yet. The Solar Dragon 18:20, 29 August 2011 (EDT)

Do you know what this is?

Hi. Do you want to guess which wiki I'm an administrator on? Do you have any idea how our logo got this? All I did was save it, paste it onto paint (which annoyingly turns it black) and the picture in the middle appeared. So, any ideas? By the way, on the leaderboard, you're two spaces down. Solar Dragon is one space down (he's finally second).
Random IP. I don't edit here. 03:56, 22 December 2011 (EST)

This is not Wikia. I've removed the links to Wikia. Ask someone on Wikia, not here. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 05:22, 22 December 2011 (EST)
Effluvium did the spacing on the logo, so if anyone added that, it was probably him. I can't ask Wikia, no-one there created the logo. 08:02, 22 December 2011 (EST)

Well ask elsewhere, as this discussion is not related to this wiki.--Cook879 08:04, 22 December 2011 (EST)

Merchandise Award sitenotice

Can you remove the Merchandise Award notice on the sitenotice and replace it with "The Merchandise Award has been revived for a Weekend Special!" I asked Solar, but like yesterday, he ignored it. Thanks, ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 10:24, 7 April 2012 (EDT)

Done. Have a look - is that what you were after? :) --Effluvium 11:57, 7 April 2012 (EDT)

I think you can remove "There is a second voting session for a new main page design." from the main page as well, because I changed to the winning alternative. FatHomerTalk 12:20, 7 April 2012 (EDT)

OK. I'll delete that bit too. --Effluvium 12:33, 7 April 2012 (EDT)

Financial Panther

Are you him? Homer to the Max (talk) 14:03, September 6, 2013 (EDT)

No? I don't really know what you're on about... --Effluvium (talk) 12:32, October 16, 2013 (EDT)
Financial Panther is one of the members on NoHomers. --Nick97 (talk ~ contribs) 15:40, October 16, 2013 (EDT)
Oh, thanks for telling me. No, I'm not him - I don't have an account on NoHomers. --Effluvium (talk) 17:09, October 18, 2013 (EDT)
