Hi i love your wiki page and was wondering if you could give me a masterclass in wiki improvement via pm on the forum? Thanks

I've sent you a message on the forum - I'll try to help as much as possible! --Marsbar9 Schomer 18:13, 5 January 2008 (GMT)

Just read what you said about us two on your userpage! I guess we do seem to argue a lot on the forum. At the time of writing I've done about 110 posts and 89 of them are arguing with you or your ideas somehow! Well I'll try to be more considerate of your ideas in future mars!

haha ye we do - I'm sure out of my 400 odd posts 3/4 are arguing or debating :P


Hi, just to let you know I am the real Alexrider (no, not realy but I am a spy) I have every single spy gadget in the world! I realy have got james Bond's watch and you know Q's helecoptor? I got it!

Nice talking,


Hey nice to speak to you Alexrider. I quite like espionage aswell lol.


Hey Mars, i saw your uploaded schome logo, which looks awesome. The only problem is that it has the OU logo in it (which not even Peter is allowed to use without the uni's permission!). I fear you may be told to remove this :( Perhaps replace the OU logo for a picture of Peter's avatar head?!

I did wonder if I was allowed to put it in and sent Peter an IM, but he never got bnack to me. I'll have a think about what else could go there, is it possible to change the colour of it, to the Schome purple or is this still a no-no? --Marsbar9 Schomer 12:47, 21 September 2007 (BST)

no - the university branding team is in charge of the logo and the OU "colour scheme" (!) and we get a right earful if we use it in an unauthorised way which includes a whole number of penickety things: using it without telling them, altering the logo in any way [removing the writing, changing colours, changing the ratio], altering the position of the logo [apparently the logo has to be within 1/4 length of itself from any other writing or borders near it], etc etc blah blah blah! We had a student event on campus last year and had to remove the OU logo from all our flyers and posters advertising the event, they are really annoyingly pedantic about the use of the OU logo. They even have a huge textbook written with all the rules and regs on how to use the OU logo LOL! --Beccaw 10:53, 22 September 2007 (BST)

Oh lol - need to look at something else then :P --Marsbar9 Schomer 11:02, 23 September 2007 (BST)


Hey just saw ya schome poster you uploaded - not too sure about the line on the first paragraph

<< Maybe you're looking to meet ppl....and no one know who you really are>>

it kinda implies you don't have to be a genuine kind of person, and that you can lie to ppl about who you are. I take it you don't mean it like that!!! Do you mean people get to meet the real you without having to physically meet you???? I dunno, i would suggest rephrasing just the last few words of that sentence.

--Beccaw 20:27, 11 October 2007 (BST)

Apparently it doesn't make grammatical sense, so I need to play about and look at that line!!! :) Thanks for pointing it out though!


Becca (Again!)

I'm so nosey LOL....

I know you uploaded these earlier in the week - but i've been too busy here in Finland to be nosing around the wiki!

Just thought i'd drop by and mention i'm loving the Learning through gaming.jpg and the Knowledge Age Skills.jpg. They both look very professional as far as my "I don't have an artistic bone in my body" opinion goes....

--Beccaw 09:26, 26 October 2007 (BST)

Thanks Becca - good comments are welcome all the time :-) --Marsbar9 Schomer 18:11, 26 October 2007 (BST)


Hey, i've been trying to follow Trixxiee's turtorial on how to upload pics to the wiki. But when i try to follow it i end up going in a giant circle:

upload file > log on > upload file > log on > upload file > log on etc

even though i am already logged on to the wiki.

Is there another way of uploading files without using the "upload file" button from the toolbox, cos it just keeps directing me to the log on to the wiki page? --Beccaw 22:43, 27 October 2007 (BST)

Hiya Becca,try this:
If that doesn't work, then I suggest popping a note on the forum - the wiki has been playing up lately, and a few people have been having similar problems. Hope this helps. --Marsbar9 Schomer 09:21, 28 October 2007 (GMT)

User page spree

You know i've just had to maually check every single new user page you created ..... sigh.....

I should give you a star for the most number of wiki edits/new pages in 24 hours!!!!! LOL! --Beccaw 20:27, 7 January 2008 (GMT)

Sorry Becca, I did think afterwards; “I wonder who’s going to moderate all those pages!” --Marsbar9 Schomer 17:20, 8 January 2008 (GMT)
I think I probably still hold "most wiki edits/new pages in 24 hours" from when I moved and categorised all personal pages into subpages in the first place - something I see is still being done (yay!). I think that came to about 350 edits in the space of four or five consecutive hours. - Kathy Schomer 17:40, 8 January 2008 (GMT)

Titanic Banner

Was thinking that maybe the text was too dark a colour (i think you have it in grey). Some people may have problems reading it (if they have dyslexia or problems differentiating between different colours). The image looks suitably spooky... mirky - rather apt considering its current location! --Beccaw 17:22, 9 January 2008 (GMT)

Hmm.... I think I was trying to get it mysterious... as if the story was going to gradually unfold. Colour is a problem I've been picked up on before, I'll try to see if I saved it - if not, I'll create it again! Thanks for pointing this out Becca :) --Marsbar9 Schomer 19:35, 9 January 2008 (GMT)
PS: I don't have re-upload rights, is there a way for you to sort that out for me or is it a job for Peter? Thanks!

Reupload rights

Hey Mars message Peter about re-upload rights. --Beccaw 14:04, 14 January 2008 (GMT)

Newsletter article

Of course you can include my pictures in the newsletter. Are you asking me to write about how I created the actual drawings on paper or how I created the characters look and their personalities? I'm a little confused. If it is the latter, I will probably write about character design and how to make a unique character and their personality. I was also wondering if that subject (character design) was all right to write about. Finally, I was wondering how long this article should be. Please reply as soon as possible. Thanks.

I am done writing the newsletter article. How do I give it to you? Please reply as soon as possible.
