I'm the maintainer of a page about ChatZilla motifs and plugins:

I'll put a screenshot of your motif and a link to its CSS, so people can find it and use it more easily if they wish.

You can contact me via email (on top of my page) if you have any comment.

Eh... things aren't going too well for me I'm afraid; I'm very ticked off at the moment, but still smiling! I won't scare you with the details, I'd come off too emo, and I hate talking about meself; it doesn't matter anyway, I'd rather hear about you :P What work?
The link didn't work, my dear! What picture was it?
Love as always going your way,

Good morning/afternoon/evening, my dear!
We've hit a bit of a snag in the LGBT.. or, I should say, we might. Do you think the more opposed people will get angry at the pictures with humans in them? I was watching the telly and some guy is suing this... thing for putting up pictures of lesbian couples :S WDYT?
Love and such going your way :)

Hiya Benn!
No worries :) I tried my hardest to phrase the question like the guy on TV did ;) BTW, I remember the name of the thing now... a children show by the name of "Arthur"...
But, I totally agree with ye. I just hate getting nasty things going my way, y'know? Thanks for your end :) I was getting a bit lonely, too, so your message was welcome :P
I'm alright, but I've been better. I won't scare you with details, as you've enough on your plate already ;) When do you head out to the college? I hope you'll still have time for, em, wikiHow :P
And, I'm facing too many technical difficulties to check your contribs list (the main problem being my inability to work computers, it seems), so I'll have to ask: did you upload any of the photos?
Love served back your way mate!

Just tell me what to do!

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that I will not be a user anymore on wikihow. I will still go on wikihow as anonomys. I will be continuing the HTE project, and helping out with all the other projects, and writing articles, but as anonomys, because I want to focus more on helping out with on wikihow, not chatting. Thanks for all the advice! Thanks for being a great friend!

Bye for now! :)

D-raeD rae said:

It'd better get sorted soon x
Anyway, Foxglove came at me with the idea of changing the name id the GLBT category to the LGBT category (makes in more universal, don't you think?); passed it along to Jack, he supports it. Just need your input, you being the leader of the project the idea stemmed from, and all :) *Gawd that was a run-on, sorry!*
Let us know, love, and that'll be dolled up in no time :D

Made my day, what with the running water bit :D You're such a sweetie :P
I shall pass your opinion along to Foxglove, and then Jack should hook us up...
And, if you don't mind, I'm looking to ask you advice once you return :)
Love and such going your way!

putting in a layout like you have where it's like a table kind of.

At 19:01, Oct 27, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Righto, I've got some time to make you suffer ;P Let's begin:
Apparently, I'm a wee bit "obvious" (as the school administration said) with my opinions on gay couples etc. Also, I'm a wee bit stingy when people insult groups, not individuals, if you get me.
While I was helping to teach a younger grade (8 or 9, I believe), the teacher was enforcing Biogenesis and totally disrespecting the homosexual population. She was, and I'm putting it nicely, quite rude. Aw, heck, she was being a she-witch. She was. What I hate the most, is that they're teaching the kids to me homophobic, and not to tolerate others. I mean.. c'mon!
I kinda sorta... *ahem* gave'em a piece of my mind. My lecture resulted in several points and giggles, and whispers of "she's so one of them". Now, people think I'm gay, which isn't that big of a deal; now nobody talks to me :D
I wouldn't mind all that drama, but now everyone's treating me different, you know what I mean? Teachers are screwing with my grades, students harassing me and my sister; but thankfully, my sister hasn't a clue of what's going on.
I thought I was being a paranoid worm (I normally am), until they stole my iPod. But then, when they gave it back, it had stuff like "The Last Gay Song Ever" (American Hard-Fi), and others I'm not going to mention. I don't want to tear up :P Also, my funky messenger bag: nobody had read what it really said, as they don't quite understand English :P But, now, they've found someone to read and dispose of it. Same with my daisy things. And the funky sock monkey with the shirt that said "A Little Straigher, but Not a Hater!" (you remember that piccie? :D)
I'm also quite surprised, as I'm the reason they've removed internet from the building... *sigh* they think I do naughty things.. my wikiHow contrib records have a lot of LGBT edits :P Ah, well, what can ye do?
I don't care about what they're doing to me, but I don't like the way they're going about this whole issue; what do you reckon is the best way to go about this? I hate seeing children hating. And I just hate the way it's affecting me grades; I want to go to university before I'm 25!
My how immature did that rant sound? I remind meself of a middle schooler who got hit in the head :P
Thanks my dear, and I heart you just for making it this far down the message. Have a hug, courtesy of moi!
PS;; Even you can't answer, I'd still appreciate a hug back :P And, you should really check out those edits on the LGBT project; (Date a Bisexual) :D

Just want to let you know VideoJug has a bunch of good video how-tos that could be added to wikiHow and would fit nicely in the LGBT project I think. I've already added Respond when a Friend Tells You They Are Gay and Respond when Your Child Tells You They Are Gay. You can find more adaptable how-tos in the VideoJug gay & lesbian section.

Wiki Postcard
Just got back from a quick trip to New Hampshire and wanted to send you this wiki postcard. It is a photo I took after hiking up Mount Monadnock. I missed you and everyone else at wikiHow when I was gone.

Thanks so much for making wikiHow a better place. You are making our shared dream of a free, complete, high quality how-to manual possible. Thanks.

D-raeD rae said:

Hiya doll face!
You made me feel so much better :) And that's with me leaving all the scary bits out.. ugh.
"What's wrong with expressing your opinions? You live in a democracy right? Have they literally said something along the lines of "Can you tone your opinions down a bit, your making it look like we have to tolerate it"?" Nope, think KSA, in an international school, love. Saudis are quite tolerant, actually, it's the "international" kids that are the bums. And, yep, they have said that. Well, they said "Can you keep your opinions on this matter to yourself, you're disrupting the learning environment." Like the girl smoking in the corner isn't.
"I thought we all live in democratic society? What is this, Iran?" Pretty close, my dear :D I wanna go back to Canada!
"GOOD ON YOU! YOU GO SISTER! *clicks fingers* Give 'em a piece of everyone else's mind too (me included). Here's a video for you <video here>" Thanks :D But... the video is blocked. What was it, really?
"WHAT!! THAT'S SURELY ILLEGAL! Complain, I would!" Ha! Tell them that. There's no one to complain to, not even the highers, as they've all made it very clear where they stand. Very clear. It's a good thing I never take anything seriously!
"do you feel that they are all in it (all the staff)? Is there anyone impartial that you can voice your concerns to? I'm very lucky, we have an Equality and Diversity Officer (who I get on very well with) who we can complain to, and the college has a zero-tolerance policy on homophobia, and we can complain about anything and something has to be done (because we are the customer's after all). Erm... perhaps a counsellor or governor or the head/president or someone? Where do you live by the way again (I'm thinking Canada?)"- well, we've no E&D officer, no counsellors, and noway would the feds help out. There's just... no way. And, as of this summer, I live in the KSA.
Did you know they even banned smarties and skittles as a result of my outburst? That makes me feel like a rebel :)
"I give you a big hug and a heart ♥" Ya? Well I give you all that and a peck <3 Love you. I cannot believe you didn't text slap me :P

PS;; nobody would care to listen :P Even the 'rents hate the rainbow.

Hey Benn I need a bit of help making my user page look...well NOT blank would be a good start. Anyway, any suggestions, comments and advice would be appreciated. I want to put in a bunch of icons and pictures and things, links to articles i've written (aren't that many)...not quite sure how to do it.


At 07:06, Nov 03, 2007

Daniyasalteregowriterintraining said:

I wanted something black and white and with only one other colour. Like black, white and sea-blue or something like that. I wanted to it to look a bit newspaper-ish actually. What do you think?

At 15:17, Nov 03, 2007

Daniyasalteregowriterintraining said:

Hey, sure go ahead, that would be great =)

At 17:37, Nov 03, 2007

Daniyasalteregowriterintraining said:

Thanks Benn I like it! :) Do you think we could make the font colour black instead of blue though and use courier new as the font? Er also can I put blog widgets on the page? I have the code for one I'm not sure if it would work on a page like this. I can send you the code if you like... and er how can I put a link to the articles I've written?

(Hope I'm not being a bother :S, I'm extremely html illiterate!)

At 17:43, Nov 03, 2007

Daniyasalteregowriterintraining said:

Er I cant post it (something about exceeding the maximum number of urls...) should I just email it to you then?

At 18:25, Nov 03, 2007

Daniyasalteregowriterintraining said:

Thanks loads Benn, I prolly won't be around I'm going offline now have work to do tomorrow and its nearly three in the morning now, will tty tomorrow then. :)

Kind wikiHow Contributor
I take great pleasure in awarding Benn with the Kindness Barnstar. You are always a cheerful, polite, sweet presence on wikiHow, and you have not gone unnoticed. Whenever anyone comes at you with a problem, you never turn them down. When faced with an unpleasant person, you stay sweet. You, my dear, are one of wikiHow's greatest.

D-raeD rae said:

Hiya cutie!
I was a bit surprised that you hadn't gotten any barnstars, actually :P It was pretty frikkin hard thinking of the words for yours, though; I had to refrain from using things like: I heart you, I love you, You're adorable (which you are :D My Lord!).. etc. etc. I'm pretty sure wikiHow wouldn't allow that XD
I've actually discovered that I just may be... *ahem*.... well, you know. Or maybe you don't.. hmm. Well, I can't bring meself to say it, which sucks :P How I wish these things were private!
Anyway, how you doing, love? Alright, so?
Have I told you that I love you recently? Ah, okay. I love you, Benn <3 *mwah*

At 16:38, Nov 11, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

'Ello my dear!
I simply heart heart heart you now <3 Your poem thingy made me cry! You're an angel, you are! <3
Heh heh... I don't have an e-mail anymore. I was getting too much hate mail, so I just closed it :P Have you got a bebo? I've got one, but only since one of my friends ate my head off about it.
I like it; Benn et Luke. That's soo cute :D I wish you luck sweetie. He is so lucky XD
Me? Em, haha. How exactly did you know? I'm thinking bi at the moment; though it may just be teenage rebellion, trying to tick off the people around me :P WDYT?
I heart you more than ever; seriously, I love you more than my iPod. That's extreme, man!! <3 xXx xXx

At 18:08, Nov 13, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Hallo my dear!
I'll see to getting my Bebo life up again :P Expect a DJ invite in a bit.
I love that, "Try before you buy" bit XD It's hard though, as, in the public eye, bi means "gay but just won't come out". Eh, well. Losing friends over orientation isn't a big deal to me, but I'd still rather shut up until I turn 25 (when I graduate and am outta the house:P)
And I wanted to tell you: remember my spat with the Bio teacher in the class? I used scientific facts to argue against the administration to make it so they can't diss the LGBT community in my school anymore :D Yay for me.
And I wanted to thank-you; you don't know how much your messages have helped me over the past summer and onward. Seriously, I owe you a lot. It's really comforting to know that I can talk to you about anything without getting verbal abuse :P Whether it's wikiHow stuff, or other things you're always there. *hugs*

You're a very brave lad, I must say. Jeez, I cannot even tell my parents I use the phone XD... or Bebo-- Cheers for the White Board thinger, btw :D-- That is so cool that you came right out; inspiration <3
You feeling down, love? I hope everything's alright...

You say Lukey, too? I thought I was the only person who did that :P
I'm good and dandy, just trying to figure out some Trigonometry homework while catching up on wikiHow. Not the best way to get it right, but whatever.. I've got a long weekend to figure it out.
87 miles away? Wow... that's not good. He's in a place with phone and internet connection, though?

Hey Benn - I took a look at the articles as you asked. I do support a merger or two there. I spruced up one of them (I forget which one now *scratching head* - sigh. Senility so young.

Excellent job!! Well done.;) I am proud of you as that was a difficult merge..;)

Thank you for sharing it with me.

At 15:41, Nov 25, 2007

Dreamgal2Sondra C said:

Not sure that Jack will put that article topic up for Featured. it is too controversal.

but it looks good and you added an excellent article to our site.

many of my articles are not Fa either....but they are needed as articles to read.

At 15:51, Nov 25, 2007

Dreamgal2Sondra C said:

I did not say we are not allowed to. We are allowed to suggest, but the choice is up to Jack.

He might just select it, I have no idea, I just gave you my opinion, which may or may not be correct.

So if you want to know, just tag it fac on the discussion page, and just wait to find out..

I've come to bother you with BSP stuffs; Create a Preppy Bedroom (girls) is ready for spiffing. Only if you're free though.
Thanks <3

D-raeD rae said:

Heya stud!
Thank you so much, I heart it (and you of course).
I also think that the LGBT article is SPIFFING! I checked it's history, and you've improved so much. Good on you!
I've got to apologise for being a wee bit.. *insert notorious b-word, adjective form, here* in that last message. I was kinda peeved (not because of you, of course!); apart from the little heart, you couldn't feel the love in it. I'm sorry :(
Right. Here's love and such coming your way, my dear! XxX
Ps;; thank you soo much *again* for the vector thing. I owe ya big time, sweetie.

At 07:55, Nov 30, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

'Ello cutie!
Still, I applaud your sweetness :P
Controversial? Ha! You should've seen Address British Royalty and Aristocracy in Person's discussion page! Now that was controversial, my dear! Come Out as LGBT would be a perfect FA, I think :)
You've talked to someone about featuring it, have you?
Lots of snuggles and love,

Unfortunately, "Offensive" is NOT an acceptable reason for an NFD tag. You can check out the list of acceptable reasons for NFD here.

At 13:33, Dec 01, 2007

Loiswade42Lois Wade said:

A merge tag would be one alternative...

You should consider though, that there are folks who would never think to search for "Understand Gay and Lesbian People"...and would search for "talk to..." instead. Think of it as providing two avenues to share information with two different types of people.

You enlarge your audience by keeping both articles.

At 13:54, Dec 01, 2007

Loiswade42Lois Wade said:

There are some folks who are so uncomfortable with the whole homosexual concept that they would never consider searching for an article titled "Understand" or "Do something with" a person who was GLBT. For those types of folks, "Talk to..." is a less threatening starting point for gathering information and beginning to understand a differing point of view.

I would suggest adding your more accepting and less offensively titled articles as Related Wiki's... so that once they have read the easy/introductory article, you can offer more comprehensive information if they're up for it.

At 15:20, Dec 01, 2007

D-raeD rae said:

Good evening, love!
Hm, I'm not at all pleased with the article's discussion page :/ I was kinda expecting comments from those people, but I didn't expect them so soon. Gr.
I think you handled it quite well, my dear :) And no worries, I'm sure it'll be up for FA eventually. I think it's about time an article like that to be featured! I like the piccies, too XD But yeah, there's no reason for it not to be. As you said, "it's the article's quality".
But what about the Understanding Gay and Lesbian People article? That may have higher chance, but what do you think?
Heh heh, I also took a gander at your article, about entertaining guests... now that deserves to be featured, cookie! :D *copy/paste*
I'm also going to nose around wikiHow's FA rules, just so I can have some ammo when I pop in on the discussion pages; I'm going to leave my bit on the LGBT article in a sec.
OMG.. you and Lukey gave me hugs!? Heh heh, gosh I feel loved :P
Sending love, snuggles and such (the whole shebang :D) to you both, and anyone else within three feet of you x0x
