Hi, fellow Futurepedia editors,

Welcome to the small quiet corner in the infinite reaches of the Futurepedia space/time continuum that is my talk page.

If you contact me on here, I will reply on here and leave a copy of my reply on your talk page; I will check back as often as I can. So if you have any questions, suggestions and/or comments about my contributions to Futurepedia, put your fingers to the keyboard and leave them here.

All I ask is that new messages be placed under the last to avoid my getting hopelessly confused, and that no inappropriate comments or bad language be used; Futurepedia is a family website, y'know!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Note: As the subject matter of Futurepedia originates in the United States, and although I live in England (U.K.), I will be using American English spellings and terms in my contributions for the sake of consistency. -- FREDDIE

Video telephone

Hi Freddie! You've been making a lot of good contributions, so thanks for your help. Sorry if I sounded a bit rude as I reverted some of your contributions to Video telephone, but sometimes it's hard to be tactful on the short comment line for an edit. First of all, since this wiki is about BTTF, I believe the focus should be about helping people understand popular culture as depicted in the movie, not describing in great detail the various services that we have today, which would have biased choices, and not very useful in understanding the movie. Second, since this is a wiki, you don't have to include comments asking people to update the information in an article in the future, since we assume this will be done.

Finally (a request for everyone), with the year 2015 coming closer, it seems a lot of editors are comparing the movie's prediction of 2015 with the real world. I don't have a problem with this as long as they don't emphasize that the movie was *wrong*, after all, this is intended to be fiction. However, if you choose to make a commentary about this, it shouldn't go in "Behind the scenes", which should be about the production of the movies. Can we put these comments under another heading called "After the movie" or "Movie future vs. actual future"? Unsigned comment by Western Union (talk • contribs).

  • Might I suggest a section or subsection within BTS titled "Fiction vs. Reality"? -- Riffsyphon1024 22:33, July 2, 2012 (UTC)
    • Well Riff, that's not quite my point. Think of the meaning of "Behind the scenes"; "scenes" means the movie the public sees on the screen, and "behind" means hidden information about the making of that scene (historical events and other elements that younger viewers may not know about that are referred to in the script, production details, etc.). Future real-world events are not part of the making of "the scenes". (Only a fact like "This episode of The Honeymooners actually aired December 31, 1955, not November 5" would go under a heading of "Fiction vs. reality" under "Behind the scenes".)
    • Since Futurepedia is patterned after Wookieepedia, I tried to look for examples of how they handle it, but didn't find any. Riff might know more about the development of policies there, but I'm surprised how they have kept everything strictly in-universe there -- I didn't see any mention of how light sabres or blasters might work in our world, or attempts to invent real working models. But since the BTTF world looks so much like our own, it's hard to remember that it is a fictional universe just like Star Wars, with its own consistent past and future.

Re. Video telephone

Hi Western Union,

Thank you for your hypercube re. Video telephone.

I did not mean to "predict our future" — to quote your page revision of 16:24, July 2, 2012 — and if I did so, I assure you I did not do this deliberately.

I had merely intended my comments about AT&T being unlikely to develop a video telephone like that seen in Back to the Future Part II with the rise of FaceTime and Skype to be in the same vein as 'Real-world science' in Hoverboard and the 'Actuality' of Hydrator.

If in doing so, I overstepped the mark, I apologise. I also accept, understand and respect your decisions for reverting my contributions, and will do my best to ensure this doesn't happen again. --Freddie R. Aldous 13:03, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

  • Don't let that discourage you from contributing, Freddie, we're all learning from each other here. I didn't know myself that AT&T had already developed a video telephone in the 1960's until I did a little research. But since I've never used FaceTime or Skype myself, unless you can cite some statistics on how many people use them, I thought it was a bit premature to proclaim them a successful home videophone. I'm sure we can come up with a logical place in these articles to put statements that rate how well the futurologists for BTTFII predicted the future. Western Union 16:18, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Identa-pad

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd get in touch to let you know I've created the page Identa-pad for Futurepedia.

As this is the first time I've created a Wikia page, I'd be very grateful if you could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary. Many thanks. --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 11:58, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Color-shifting lenticular baseball cap

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know I've created the page Color-shifting lenticular baseball cap for Futurepedia.

I'd be very grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary. Many thanks. -- --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 10:04, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Shredding

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know I've created the page Shredding for Futurepedia.

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary. Many thanks. ----Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 12:43, April 28, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia pages: Luxor Cab Company and Cab B25

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I've created not one but two (yes, two!) new pages for Futurepedia: Luxor Cab Company and Cab B25.

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary. Many thanks. --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 18:41, May 2, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Transparent necktie

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I've created the page Transparent necktie for Futurepedia.

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary.

As the page is currently imageless (which is why I've added this particular category), please feel free to add any image(s) you come across which may be suitable. Assuming, of course, you can find any of a necktie that's transparent... :-)

Many thanks. --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 11:17, May 4, 2014 (UTC)


Hi Western Union,

Newface

Just thought I'd let you know that I've managed to find a suitable image for Transparent necktie so the page is now no longer imageless, and have attached a copy so you can see what I've chosen.

Hope you appreciate this update. Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 16:21, July 3, 2014 (UTC)

Cab B25

Hi Riffsyphon1024,

Funrise Collector Cards

According to the Collector Card on the rear packaging for the toy Back to the Future Taxicab manufactured by Funrise, Inc. as part of their Back to the Future Part II three-vehicle series in 1989 (the other two being the DeLorean Car (Modified Engine) and the Back to the Future Police Car), Cab B25 came with an 'Entertainment System' consisting of "200 local channel stereo, mobile phone, food, beverage and snack dispensing systems".

As this info was never mentioned either in the movie or in the novelization, should it be "considered non-canon or disputed in canonicity", which is how I marked it when adding it to Taxicab?

I'd be grateful if you could look into this matter (perhaps Western Union could help you out here) and let me know what you decide. If you decide to alter or roll back the aforementioned edit, I'll understand.

Many thanks.--Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 11:21, May 20, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Auto rebels

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I've created the page Auto rebels for Futurepedia.

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary.

CusCo's phone number

Hi McFord,

What exactly does happen when you dial CusCo's number 1-954-204-345 on the phone? As I live in England (UK) and not the United States, I'd be interested to know.

Many thanks.--Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 12:08, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

  • More detailed answer is on my talk page, but short answer is that if you dialed one more number, it would ring a phone somewhere near Miami, Florida.

New Futurepedia page: Magnifying glass

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I've created the page Magnifying glass for Futurepedia.

I'd be very grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary.

Many thanks. --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 16:01, September 2, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia pages: Reel-to-reel tape recorder and Soapbox scooter

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I've created not one but two (yes, two!) new pages for Futurepedia: Reel-to-reel tape recorder and Soapbox scooter.

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary.

As both pages are currently imageless, please feel free to add any image(s) you come across which may be suitable.

Many thanks. --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 14:36, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Marty's driver's license

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I've created the page Marty's driver's license for Futurepedia.

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary — bearing in mind that, living in the UK, my knowledge of driver's licenses issued in the United States is rather limited. Perhaps you could also mention when doing so what the pink circle on the left of Marty's signature, his birthdate and the code 00 11 051955 is — a DMV hologram, perhaps?

I should point out that the details of the license used on the page have been taken from Free printable copy of Marty's driver's license.

As the page is currently imageless, please feel free to add any image(s) you come across which may be suitable.

Many thanks --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 10:32, October 8, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Compu-Serve

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I've created the page Compu-Serve for Futurepedia.

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary.

The page is a stub at the moment as I didn't have any more information on the subject (sorry about that), but hopefully other historians will expand it in the not-too-distant future. Fingers crossed...

Many thanks. --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 13:48, October 8, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Tank truck

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you that I've created the page Tank truck for Futurepedia.

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary.

I wasn't sure to begin with whether to call the page 'Tank truck' or 'Tanker truck' (which I gather are both used in the United States), but seeing as Wikipedia calls its page on the subject by the former title, and I wanted to include a link to this, I decided: 'Tank truck', it is! I hope this will be all right.

Many thanks. --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 14:32, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

Imput on Lincoln

Though brief, I was thinking of putting up an article of Abraham Lincoln due to mention of his assassination during Back to the Future: The Game - Episode 4: Double Visions.

That said, would you say that he technically appears in Back to the Future Part II due to being on a 5 dollar bill in Doc's money suitcase? If not, any good instances where there's a good look at a dollar bill or penny? Antiyonder (talk) 23:04, October 26, 2014 (UTC)

Hi Antiyonder,

In answer to your question, I suppose Abraham Lincoln being seen on a $5 bill in Doc's money suitcase in Back to the Future Part II would count as an appearance, just as much as that of Goldie Wilson II on the promotional re-election posters seen in 2015 in that same movie.

But then, you can bet your bottom dollar (if you'll pardon the pun) that someone somewhere will have a different opinion on this. :-)

Anyway, best of luck with the article! --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 12:44, October 28, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the imput. Incidentally, any idea if it's alright for anyone to create templates, or is it something only mods/admins are allowed to do on here? I ask cause I'd like to be able to better link to the Simpsons Wiki (as opposed to the Simpsons Wikia) due to the fact that my uploads were from the site. Antiyonder (talk) 23:14, October 28, 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, Antiyonder, can't help you on the subject of templates, I'm afraid. It's best to contact the admins on this; remember, they know best! -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 11:20, October 30, 2014 (UTC)
Figured so. It's just that Riff seems to have taken a leave of absence, so I'm not sure when he'll respond to my question. Antiyonder (talk) 20:14, November 2, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Receipt

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I've created the page Receipt for Futurepedia.

OK, I admit this is just a small item in the BTTF universe, but I thought it would be worth mentioning! :-)

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary.

Many thanks.--Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 15:50, December 18, 2014 (UTC)

New Futurepedia page: Credit card

Hi Western Union,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that I've created the page Credit card for Futurepedia.

Like Receipt, this is another small item in the BTTF universe, but I thought it worthy of mention! :-)

I'd be grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary.

As the page is currently imageless (which is why I've added this particular category), please feel free to add any image(s) you come across which may be suitable.

Which comes first: 'Behind the scenes' or 'Actuality'?

Hi Riffsyphon1024,

With regard to pages relating to 2015, should the 'Behind the scenes' section come after 'Actuality' or before?

I'd very grateful if you could tell me the preferred style so I can bear this in mind for any new pages I may create for Futurepedia.

I await your reply with great interest. -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 13:22, January 1, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Which comes first: 'Behind the scenes' or 'Actuality'?

Hi Tonyruscoe,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to thank you for the layout suggestion for pages relating to 2015 you left on Riffsyphon1024's talk page in reply to my post.

It'll come in very useful for when I create any new pages for Futurepedia, and I've printed myself off a copy for reference.

With regard as to whether the second section should be called 'Actuality' or 'Real world', I personally prefer the former, and have been changing the heading accordingly when I come across it. As far as I know, no-one's ever changed it back, so I'd say 'Actuality' is now the accepted title. I hope this helps.

Many thanks for your help, and all the best for the real-life 2015! --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 11:56, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

  • In case you didn't see his response, Riffsyphon1024 replied to your question:
    Pardon the delay in response. We should actually have Actuality as a subsection of Behind the Scenes. Everything else listed is okay.
    Also, I just stumbled across this useful page which I'd not seen before: Futurepedia:Manual_of_StyleTonyruscoe (talk) 20:44, January 12, 2015 (UTC)

New articles

Hi Riffsyphon1024,

With regard to the reply you left on Western Union's talk page to my message 'New Futurepedia page: Pac Fax' (04:19, January 13, 2015), I think it's only fair to point out that the reason I notify you every time I create an article for Futurepedia is because I've always done so ever since I created my first page, Identa-pad, on September 27, 2012.

I feel that to do this is only polite, rather than you and Western Union having a new article suddenly appearing on Futurepedia unannounced anywhere except on the Recent Wiki Activity page. I also let you know so that — as I point out in my messages — you may “take a look when you get a spare moment and make any changes you consider necessary”. I hope you understand.

Anyway, keep up the good work in the real-life 2015! -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 15:24, January 13, 2015 (UTC)

Re: New articles

Hi Riffsyphon1024,

Thank you for your message (23:45, January 13, 2015) letting me know about the Special:Newpages and Special:NewFiles logs — both of which, to tell you the truth, I had previously been completely unaware of in all my time as a historian. Still, one learns something new every day...

Anyway, I'll do as you've asked and whenever I create a new article for Futurepedia, I'll let the aforementioned logs and the Recent Wiki Activity page speak for themselves.

Now comes the tricky part: with all the redlinks that have been added to pages recently, where do I start?! :-)

Keep up the good work in the real-life 2015! -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 14:40, January 14, 2015 (UTC)

_NOTOC_

Hi Riffsyphon1024,

Please could you explain the meaning of the _NOTOC_ code that has been placed on the page Photograph?

If it's to indicate something I've done wrong when creating the page, I apologize and will try not to do it again.

I await your reply with great interest. -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 20:53, January 28, 2015 (UTC)

Re. Glasses

Hi Antiyonder,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to thank you for your recent new additions to Glasses, all of which I had been unaware of when I created the page.

BTW, don't worry about not being an expert on glasses even though you wear them yourself. I wear glasses too, and I'm no expert on them either!

Anyway, keep up the good work in the real-life 2015. -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 10:16, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Incidentally, as my birthday for the year passed, I decided to get the 2nd DVD release of the trilogy as you know a person can only have one 2015 birthday. Antiyonder (talk) 18:08, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

If I may ask for a bit of help...

Yeah, I got the go ahead to to the templates to link to an article from the Simpsonswiki (https://simpsonswiki.com/wiki/Main_Page) as opposed to the Simpsons Wikia as that's where I got some of the related photos and such for my articles here.

But I haven't been able to make the proper link whether it's External link or just typing in the page title within an article. Maybe you could help out with that. (Link for the template is here: http://backtothefuture.wikia.com/wiki/Template:SimpsonsWiki) Antiyonder (talk) 18:08, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Past or present tense?

I'm curious why you think the tense of an article like Back to the Future Annual should be changed from present to past. While the book is no longer on sale, it does still exist. It's true that it was a book, but it still is a book, so I believe the article should be written in the present tense. I was going to just revert the changes but thought I'd see if you had good reasons for making the change. Cheers! Tonyruscoe (talk) 21:04, May 6, 2015 (UTC)

  • After doing a bit searching, I've found that past tense is preferred for in-universe articles but the style guidelines are unclear for out-of-universe articles, since How to write suggests that present tense is acceptable when talking about the real world while the Manual of Style seems to suggest that all articles should be written in past tense including real-world articles. So perhaps you're right? Tonyruscoe (talk) 21:18, May 6, 2015 (UTC)

2045?

Bttf4

This logo was set in 2045 by Zemeckis and Gale.

Freddie, I have seen some of the articles written 2045 and I don't know why it doesn't appear in Back to the Future trilogy or animated series since 1991-1992 but I the logo of Back to the Future Part IV looks like Doc and Marty arriving on June 16, 2045. JajathePuppet (talk) 09:13, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

Actual 10/22/2015 issue of USA Today

Hi Riffsyphon1024,

USA Today BTTF2

I am wondering whether or not the articles featured on the front page wrap of the real-life October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today should be considered canon or non-canon on Futurepedia.

Please you tell me which is correct? Thank you. -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 15:40, October 22, 2015 (UTC)

Could use your imput on doing articles for IDW's BTTF

Now given that each issue looks to have two stories each, do you think I should just make an article for the stories, or make an article for each story plus the comic book they appear in? Antiyonder (talk) 22:13, October 23, 2015 (UTC)

Television channels in 2015

Hi McFord,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to thank you for your edit to Canine Sports Network, and for pointing out in your summary that 'channel' rather than 'station' is actually correct.

I had wrongly assumed that the two were one and the same, and had therefore used 'station' as an alternative name for 'channel'. As a result of your summary, I've now altered The Art Channel, The Atrocity Channel and The Weather Channel accordingly.

Once again, thank you for your correction, and keep up the good work! -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 11:22, November 1, 2015 (UTC)

Belated response, sorry!

Freddie-- I just now read your note of November 1, and apologize for not responding sooner.  Before now, I hadn't noticed the mention in the corner of "you have new messages", whereas on Wikipedia, it's a bright orange announcement.   I must have seemed awfully arrogant in failing to acknowledge your note. Anyway, I'm impressed with all of the additions that you bring to this project.  I've been contributing, on and off, for several years.  Best wishes.  McFord (talk) 16:27, December 14, 2015 (UTC)

SKYWAY CONDITION sign

Hi Western Union,

I think Skyway could do with an image of the small non-floating SKYWAY CONDITION sign seen affixed to the corner of a rooftop in Courthouse Square in 2015 to tie-in with the descriptive text I have previously provided.

Unfortunately, I don't have the means to provide an image of the aforementioned sign myself for Futurepedia. Perhaps you and/or Riffsyphon1024 could help out here? Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I await your reply with great interest. -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 14:44, May 13, 2016 (UTC)

Peanut brittle

Actually, didn't we see it briefly in the movie as George poured some into a bowl during the McFly family dinner in Part 1? Antiyonder (talk) 20:01, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

Re. Peanut brittle

Hi Antiyonder,

Thanks for pointing out the unfortunate omission of the brief appearance of peanut brittle during the dinner scene in Back to the Future. I've updated the 'Behind the scenes' section of the page accordingly.

Well spotted, and A+ for observation! --Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 20:23, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

I'll see you in the future!

Fox Pasadena Theatre (not Theater!)

Hi JenniBee,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to apologize for 'correcting' the name of Fox Pasadena Theatre.

I honestly had no idea that the theater's name was actually spelled as 'Theatre' (U.K. spelling) and not 'Theater' (U.S. spelling). Had I known this, I wouldn't have renamed the page, thinking it was a mistake.

I've changed the name back, and added info in the 'Behind the scenes' section to point out that 'theatre' is the correct spelling so, hopefully, no other historians will make the same mistake I did.

You've done some good work on Futurepedia recently, such as adding more info and/or images to pages I've created, so keep it up.

I await your reply with great interest. -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 19:14, March 13, 2017 (UTC)

'IDW comics' page images

I've added images to the IDW pages in your list - hopefully all of them, but I may have missed some.

Re: 'IDW comics' page images

Hi Olicomet,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to thank you for all the images you've added to the Back to the Future (IDW Publishing) pages I've created.

Keep up the good work on Futurepedia, and I hope you continue to enjoy the BTTF IDW comic books/trade paperbacks.

I await your reply with great interest. -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk) 19:32, June 22, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for helping me dude, English is not really my speaking language and you seem to be the only one 'fluenting' my work.

Your recently created pages

Hi JenniBee,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know I've added the previously omitted 'Appearances' section to your recently created pages Camel cigarettes, Camel cigarettes vendor, Cigarette and Tobacco.

However, I don't know which issue number(s) of Back to the Future: Tales from the Time Train the pages related to (I only read the trade paperbacks, I'm afraid), so perhaps you could add these so the 'Appearances' section on each page will be complete?

I await your reply with great interest.

Another vandal

Hi Riffsyphon1024,

I have noticed that someone on the wiki has been vandalizing certain pages on the wiki, changing release dates relating to the Back to the Future trilogy. I shan't refer to them by name, but I'm sure you know who it is.

As a result of this vandalism, the release dates for Parts I, II and III are now given as 1996, 2000 and 2001 respectively — all of which are completely inaccurate and nonsensical.

I've tried to change back as much of this misinformation as I can, only for it to be reverted. People like this spoil Futurepedia for others, so please take appropriate action as soon as you can.

Many thanks -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk)


Vandal alert

Hi Western Union,

I've alerted your fellow admin Riffsyphon1024 to the presence of a vandal on the wiki, and thought I should let you know too.

This individual — who I shan't refer to by name, but I'm sure you know who they are — has been changing release dates relating to the Back to the Future trilogy, giving those for Parts I, II and III as 1996, 2000 and 2001 respectively — all of which are completely inaccurate and nonsensical.

I've tried to change back as much of this misinformation as I can, only for it to be reverted. I would be very grateful if you and Riffsyphon1024 could take action as soon as possible, as people like this spoil Futurepedia for others.

I await your reply with great interest. -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk)


New images

Hi Nyptkeeper,

Just thought I'd drop you a line to thank you for all the photos and/or screenshots you've added to the previously imageless pages I created.

A+ for all your good work, and keep it up! -- Freddie R. Aldous (talk)

Reporting a vandal

Hello I would like to report the user: KmB2906! who is consistently vandalising pages for instance he keeps changing the release date for the first film to 1993, the second film to 1996 and the third to 2002 which is obviously false and we have many sources to confirm the correct years are 1985, 1989 and 1990 (ironically he even leaves in the citations confirming the correct dates). I have reverted his edits 3 times now so it seems he's not going to let up therefore a block would be the appropriate action. JJFLyingV (talk) 18:40, June 8, 2019 (UTC)

Re: Reporting a vandal

Hi JJFlyingV,

I'm afraid I can't help you, as I'm not an admin. It's User:Riffsyphon1024 and User:Western Union you want.

However, I'm aware of the vandal you mention, KmB2906!, and have reported them to the admins. I suggest you do the same, as people like this spoil Futurepedia for others.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
