Hi Billy, I'm an admin that's been away for a while and I really appreciate you picking up the slack while I've been gone. That said, however, a user brought some concerns to me about the image liscensing policy that you have implemented. I certainly do not want to take sides, but I was hoping to discuss it with you. Although liscensing is important, it is not necessary for every image on the wiki to be liscensed and to insist that every image be liscensed will discourage casual editors and stunt the growth of our already small wiki. I would also like to remind you that blocking is a last resort and not to be used against a user who questions or disagrees with you. There are some other policy issues that I would like to discuss with you as well, once we discuss and refine the image policy. --[[User:DreamPunk|DreamPunk]] 23:16, May 26, 2012 (UTC)

Welcome

Hi, welcome to Steampunk Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Steampunk page.

Then join us for an upcoming webinar to chat with staff and other Wikia editors. You can also check our Staff blog to keep up-to-date with the latest news and events around Wikia.

Happy editing, BillK (help forum | blog)

Response from Tissa

Hi, Billy. Yes would love to have you as an admin ... I have been following some of your additions. (and I am a big Girl Genius fan. Let me know if you need me to do anything.) --Tissa.Forrest 02:11, March 23, 2012 (UTC)

Billy are you an admin now? If you are could we add "Virtual Worlds" and "Machinima" to the media drop down? And add "Fictional Characters" and "Avatars" to the people drop down. And maybe add them to the home page as well. --Tissa.Forrest 23:19, March 26, 2012 (UTC)


No, not yet. Have you left BillK a message? I suppose that they are still trying to make up their minds about me. -- Billy Catringer 14:45, March 27, 2012 (UTC)

Yes I left the message for BillK --Tissa.Forrest 15:06, March 27, 2012 (UTC) So far, I have not heard a word from him. I have continued working on this place as though I am going to get the job, but who knows. I do appreciate your having got in touch with BillK though. -- Billy Catringer 16:08, March 27, 2012 (UTC)

Dr. Carmilla

Hi Billy, I'm Maki, the creator of Dr. Carmilla, Nice to meet you! I got a message from Koshernova to join and fill in my details, so here I am ^^

Mx.yamazaki 16:22, April 8, 2012 (UTC) Well, good! I am happy to welcome you aboard. Have fun with your very own page, Maki. -- Billy Catringer 16:27, April 8, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Billy! I've added a section on Retrospective-Futurism and interlinked a few of the sections, as well as a couple of minor scripting tweaks to a a couple of pages so that they look nicer. I'll see about working on some of the other pages that I have good knowledge of (a number of them are friends of mine) and possibly start a page on the mechanisms. I've written up the start of the Dr. Carmilla page, but looking forward to helping out over the site in general :) Mx.yamazaki 19:15, April 8, 2012 (UTC)

Looking forward to it Billy, and thank you for the welcome. Ms. Sheol 05:34, April 16, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Billy, I edited the talk page for steampunk bands as I felt that it was no longer appropriate since the changes you have made to the page criteria. Thank you for your continued openess to editing and updating of the page.

Sincerely, Sheol.

Image Licensing

Hi Billy, I'm an admin that's been away for a while and I really appreciate you picking up the slack while I've been gone.
