Thanks for the Heads up, im still new to all this but want to participate, cheers for correcting me.
The story The World's End is mine. I started it back in 2008/2007. I should have rights to edit the pages as I see fit. Someone that took the time to write one page does not have control over everything. Please let me have creative license over my work. It is not my intention to rip apart others contributions, but sometimes I need to clean things up and add some things to the story. Anyways, I don't think anyone else has contributed to my story for about three years, I don't think they will be mad if I change a few sentences or delete something so it makes more sense.
Oh... whoops. Guess I was more tired than I thought. Thanks for pointing that out to me.

Could you delete the following page in my story. Walk over to the fully-grown female child and explain to the father that you intend no harm, you just want her as your mate
I changed the title, edited the page, and tried to move it to the new location, only to find that someone had written in it already. Thanks.
Hey, just wondering if you could delete the following page on my story? I merged it with another page, and couldn't find a tutorial on how to do it. Thanks.

Thanks for the helpful tips on punctuating dialogue! Gosh, you'd think I would know a simple grammatical rule like that. Horribly embarrassing, but I guess you learn something new every day! ;D

Thank you so much for helping us abide by the categories. I actually am teaching a class of 12-14 year olds in Santiago in a two-week course of creative writing. We are really enjoying this create-your-own-adventure site but did notice that one of our pages were deleted. What would you suggest we do to prevent this happening again? Would you like us to each make our own account?

Hey, I'm kind of new here but I've notice that I can't post my idea in the Idea Pitch... The story's name is The Twin Empires.
Hey, I've seen that you've edited my page. I'm currently trying to figure out how the formatting goes, and have had some trouble with the tutorial. Do you think I could get some advice? I've read the tutorial over and over and cant figure out how to add properly formatted links and how to edit those linked pages (and so on and so forth)
Thanks for the help
Hey bro r u the mod here? If you are I cannot put images in the submissions every-time i get a code verifier then it puts me on 20 min lock down. Also I haven't really checked my stories but it seems someone let ppl edit it now i got rows upon rows of additions i dont like.
Thanks for the heads up about the categories for my High School submissions and fixing my pages. And thanks for the text for the status bar; I was wondering how to get that.
User: Mreurotic Date: 10/10/2013 Hey, I messaged you once before, and was now curious about something. Is there a way to find out when new pages within your story are added? I ask this because I come on weekly, and hate having to travel through every option to see if there is anything new. I was also wondering if you had your own website somewhere, and if you did, could you share it? Thank you.
P.S. If you, or anyone reading this, wanted to email me, you can at email@example.com
I saw your comment, and I'm kind of busy with my story at the moment but I plan on putting a title for each category I post. -Txtinkerbell12, 12-9-13 ____________________________________________________________________
Hey, quick question: I forgot my password, and was wondering if there was anyway to recover it? if not, that's okay, was just curious. - Kanin452, 12-5-13
Thank you for the constructive criticism without being a jerk, and for not deleting my contribution. I admit that was my very first edit on the site. Your adventure is my favourite on the site so far and I may have gotten a bit carried away! - ThaneOfAss
Still new to site. I see your warning and am trying to figure out what you mean it. I'm just working on structure atm and apologize if I left out something important but i'm still working around the main structure and am not finished so please don't delete my work. My thanks, ~ MixedMojo
Hey there - just wondered if you'd like to read and/or comment on my story. Am new to the site. The story is The Punishment of Claire and Cassandra. Any tips/criticisms on the story or using the wiki would be most appreciated. Hornlarry 00:09, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
User:creat0r Yeah, I know I'm not the best at grammar, and I know I forgot the location in the status bar. *facepalms*
Anyways, maybe you or someone else good at grammar could review the pages I make? I don't want to impose or force you to work. Just asking! Anyways, thank you so much for fixing my little problems. :) User:creat0r What do you mean? I looked over my additions and I can't see any problems. ________________________________________________________
User:Mreurotic Sorry if my grammar isn't up to standards. I love that story arc, yet since nothing was added for a while, I thought I could help. I can see 1 punctuation error, yet that is it. Sorry if I make mistakes.
User: Mreurotic I do admit that I am distracted at times, often writing an addition to your things, as well as on another site trying a 'choose your own adventure' style thing with the comments. I will take into consideration your advice, and re-edit what I have put up to keep it up to your standard. I hope that you do find my writing up to standard, as part of my dream is to become a writer, and this is good experience for me to learn.
User:RoodyPoo Uhhh...don't delete my page. It's obviously a WIP. Let me finish it before you decide if it's good enough or not. _________________________________________________________
User:Masterdill22 Hey, i just recieved your message about leaving my title to the category thing, and I'm somehwat confused... i dont mind if you edit them to meet the requirements, oh and also, how easy is my story to access right now since its just been created?
Hey, sorry. How do I add my title to the category thing?
I am just curious as to why my pages On Xozen Infection? I am very confused.If i did something wrong please inform before you delete it. *Seth Xozen*
I apologize for misspelling "brakes" in Rampage. Thanks for the heads up. -Tower0505
Quick question, how do I make my story available to the public? -Jessica<3
I wanted to try to fix the 'Hot Mom' pages that you deleted because they weren't catagorized but my first and only attempt failed so feel free to delete that attempt. I was trying to keep the original content and just add what ever it was missing but couldn't make it work. Didn't mean to side-step your authority or anything like that and apologize if it created a miss understanding. - Black Dragon 25
Hey how do I add the title to the catagory? - Yougotmyshirt
It's great the sight has decreased the page load time. It was getting to unbearable levels. However the 20 page per hour thing is god awful. Can that be edited some how so ppl are not waiting a whole hour? Like say down to 2 or 3 per minute.--Yihman1 05:02, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi, youve sent me 2 warnings on page catagorization. I'm new here, how do I do that? 6 june 2013
These last months the site has been unbearably slow making it practically unusable, and despite repeated contacts the site admin Rob Kohr does not seem interested in acknowledging that his quick fixes aren't real solutions. Since I see no indication on his part a comprehensive fix restoring this site to normal responsiveness is forthcoming any time soon, I'd like to ask you if you know of any other free wiki site with a no-censorship policy, Platypus? Regards, Anedwcan 06:16, 8 July 2013 (UTC)
Really quick question, I can't see the amount of views I am getting per page anymore. Is this the same for everybody or did I change a setting?
Hello! Just curious about why you deleted my page. - FFF
In regards to your last comment on my talk page, I just wanted to say that I respect that rampage is your story, and if you don't want me posting there, then just say the word; I will respect that.
I put up a couple of stories last night, one of which I found in a folder which I thought I had posted a long time ago, the other of which I wrote in a bit of a hurry. For that reason, I must have forgotten to make sure that they conformed to your preferred punctuation style, and I apologize for that.
In regard to your last comment on my talk page, allow me to say, "Thank you". You said everything I had hoped you would say, and I feel encouraged to keep writing, and to follow http://editthis.info/create_your_own_adventure/Punctuation_with_dialogue.
My academic background is in descriptive grammar, and I have since moved to work with editing, which is of course prescriptive, but I never work with fiction writing, so I haven't had cause to study use of punctuation in quotations before.
Sorry about any grammar mistakes, I thought I had looked over it and caught them. Do you mind letting me know what I missed so I'm more aware of it next time?
Hey it's me again. It seems that stories haven't been featured in a while. Are they chosen by the someone or can we just replace it with our own every week?
Sorry for the way i've been acting, i'm not trying to get banned. Sometimes I don't always think before I post due to my Aspberger's Syndrome, I was out of line with what I said before and I regret it. I appreciate you showing what I did wrong with my last entry, that really helped me. So i'm going to take your advice and try and start my own story, i'll consider myself lucky if I turn out to be even half as good of a writer as you are, i'll try not to make my grammar look too sloppy. I actually did well in my English classes in college, but I guess it's not always so easy to adapt your skills at writing papers into writing stories on sites like this. _________________________________________________________
I'll keep that in mind. Thanks. - Azmor
Hi This is Pedobear12 Thank you for showing me how to add the category into the story, I was trying to do that, but gave up. turns out i was almost there :) Anyway I was wondering if you could tell me how to make different lines in a single story merge. In other words if one decision was made, how do I make the lines merge with a bit down the line decisions of a different set. What I am getting at is that if you choose a path it may lead to being captured or death. if you choose the other path one of the decisions in that path could have the same result. So instead of retyping it, I want to know how to direct the page to that same ending, especially if I think that ending was writen well?
Hey this is Gaydude, I'm new with all these things, I have the basics like making a page and stuff down. Don't know a thing about adding the category thingy and also about merging parts of the story.
Incomplete pages /options/status bar/category from the previous page.
Hey thanks for the feedback. I am fairly new to this site and don't yet know how to make new pages, add choices or add category bar. I don't mean to leave the story on a limb, it's just I don't know how to add options and selections. Could you message me and explain these to me if it's not too much trouble.
EDIT: Interesting how the masculine/feminine forms persist from the the word's French roots. I didn't know that!
I dont know how to create the page with a catagory how do i do that? 22xander
Platypus, i am pretty new to this site, and i want to try to help with your story. Can you please help me with making a good story with links?
(note: I think Links are pretty dang confusing)
Thank you, From TrawnyCarrol
Thanks man, I'll read some of the interactive and see if i can help somewhere
Pokemon Trainer School - Trawny
Ok, i read a lot of what has been done, and i was wondering if i could help with the Pokemon trainer school? I'll take any pokemon, but i would prefer to do snivy's story.
Pizza Girl Choices
I'm confused as to why you deleted the page I added for the pizza girl in the hotel. The note about the deletion said the choices weren't in second person, but each and ever choice refers to "you", the very definition of second person. Please clarify this for me.
Catogrizing pages Trawny
how do i categorize these pages, still a bit new with that.
Sorry, must have missed where I failed to post the name. If I didn't do it, then can you please edit that for me? I'm new here.
So, I can't even use a simple url?
About my additions
I'm cool with you editing and deleting my posts, it shows that you care about the quality of the story. I'd like to apologize for any annoyance I may have caused. Also, about the thing with who was in the car, I assumed that the choices being made were more what the person reading would want to happen, not what the actual character in the story was making. Whoops, I will be sure to follow the rules in the future and brush up on my grammar skills! --Anyname 23:08, 9 February 2014 (EST)
I didn't vandalize anything. The only page I've altered has been for continuity, due to what has happened in the storyline for the previous few pages. This wasn't a prank, that was just the direction the story was going. You can check, if you like: http://editthis.info/create_your_own_adventure/Give_her_one_last_cream_filling --User:Nighshade586
Just wanted to say hello, thank you for deleting my post.
Sorry, I am not used to editing these. I do better with my blog.
Anyways, I guess I will see you around ^.^
--Dirty Me 13:09, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Addition - Platypus, question. I want to create a page in my story but not linked to my story where I can keep a log of where my links are and where they are broken. I can probably do it on my PC, but I am editing from both home and work, so feel it would be easier if I can just have a link log or something where I keep track of my forks without having to go through it multiple times.
Is this acceptable to do? I just want to make sure.
--Dirty Me 13:57, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
So, just checking. Do I seem to be doing fine right now? I know I occasionally post a long story in a link, then have no additional options and change the stuff in that link. I am just laying in the base for the branch I am working on, and will remove/add/edit/modify everything as I progress. You can see my most recent path if you are worried about that, so you can see how I work on it and bring it to the final stage. Just wanted to mention that, since I am still doing alot of work on it. --Dirty Me 10:37, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Hmm, think I have a problem. I tried to create a template so I could have a hide text thing, and think I did something wrong, because I keep getting Template loop detected: Template:Hidden begin Template loop detected: Template:Hidden begin Template loop detected: Template:Hidden end. Any idea what I am doing wrong? I tried it from the standard wikipedia, but, it doesn't seem to be working D: --Dirty Me 09:20, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Actually, what I am trying to do is this (Which you can see is a problem if you check the Dirty Me/Storyboard:
- Nothing seen here
Click the show,
- path 1 [show]
- path 2 [show]
- path 3 [show]
Then, I can create the page paths, so, for example, someone is reading through, then gets to a certain point and needs to leave, they can just go to the Storyboard, look up the path they see, and go directly to it. It seems nicer than the category page, so you can see what choices lead to what paths. I guess I saw Uman's, and liked it, but wanted to make the entire story path so you could just look up options quickly and decide where you want to go. But right now, my opening, with all paths shown until the end of it, is over 900 lines, which won't really be nice for anyone to use. Instead, it is just a mess D: --Dirty Me 13:05, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
If we can figure it out, it would be nice, but no worries. Sorry, I have created a few pages for you to delete, since it isn't really worth it to try without being able to hide. The pages I guess that I wasted trying this, and that aren't needed are: Template:Dirty Me/hidden begin, Template:Hidden begin, Template:Hidden end, and think I accidentally created Template:Documentation. If we can't really find a way to do it, I think my storyboard idea is useless, but guess we can wait for a little to see if someone knows how to before deleting it. Sorry for the mess/headache D: --Dirty Me 13:37, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for deleting the pages, and sorry for the mess. Also, thanks for fixing the +annabeth thing. I didn't notice I deleted the wrong part. I saw it had some warning thing about resources or whatever, so I was trying to delete some of the PAGESINCAT things I was using. It helps for finding stories that don't have much, but guess it gives some problems or whatever. I will just use it for the currently active stories now. Now to see what else I want to do. Maybe I will look at Uman's thing and try that for my storyboard. idk, we will see xD --Dirty Me 16:12, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Platypus, sorry, I thought I had fixed Blazetempest's issues a bit more. I wasn't sure what to do with it, and it was a bit poorly written, but I thought I at least made it more sensible. It may be my fault, since I was unsure if the story was written from an "I" or "You" point, so I left his pronoun style the same, and just adjusted some of the other grammatical mistakes. --Dirty Me 16:29, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Any reason you deleted my story? Kelly and Owen's Pokemon Adventure?
If something was wrong why not message me some how, instead of deleting everything?
Please move from family section as it has.kicking in the balls etc
(About Dadrocks' change to the front page) Platypus, I read the message on his page, and in his defense, I don't think he changed the Harry Potter thing on the front page for vandalism, but to try to request it be moved to a different section since he seems to feel it was no longer family friendly due to his addition. I understand why it is inappropriate, but, I think it is more an act of (insert reference to lights and no one being home here), rather than malicious intent. Just wanted to mention how it seems so there are no hard feelings because of a misunderstanding. Of course, there is the question of quality to his changes...but that is a different issue... --Dirty Me 09:10, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
