Where is the place to discuss introduction of new articles? Sohould we just create an article and that is it? I would like to do one in the Cheerleading Team of LWH, and I have already picked up some notes. How should I proceed?
- I don't think there is one. If you want to start an article, search for the title in the search box (for example "Lawndale High School cheerleaders". You'll end up with a page starting There is no page titled "Lawndale High School cheerleaders". You will be then asked to create such a page. Go to Wikipedia's how to edit a page for instructions.

Is it Doom Yet?
I noticed this unused page Is it Doom Yet? (Please note the lowercase i in the second word) and redirected it to the correct title, Is It Doom Yet?. I just noticed that the first page isn't actually used elsewhere nor is it linked to by anything. It probably could just be deleted. --Drmike 10:04, 25 April 2008 (EDT)
Page with wrong name
Hello All. I'm a little embarrassed to inform that I made a mistake while typing one of the pages for the Canon Characters: I entered a page to David, a character briefly appearing in Gifted, and wanted to name the page "David (Grove Hills)", to distinguish it from "David Sorenson". However, I mispelled and wrote "David (Gove Hills)".
I assume the page needs either to be deleted or renamed. But, for that, I think an administrator is needed... Or is there any other way?
Sorry again for the typo... --João Paulo Costa 13:48, 18 March 2009 (CDT)
Turned the typo into a redirect and copied the info onto the correct page title after punching it up a bit. Disco316 18:15, 18 March 2009 (CDT)
Thank you! --João Paulo Costa 21:42, 19 March 2009 (CDT)
- Sorry I didn't see this before. I deleted the "David (Gove Hills)" article. --Quiverwing 11:54, 19 April 2009 (CDT)
Fictional Characters in Canon
Hello All: here's a question that I'd like to present:
I've been thinking of adding pages to the characters Rattling Girl of Lawndale, Metal Mouth and Girl in The House of Bad Grades. All of these were refered to in the episode 410 Legends of the Mall
My question regards their nature: Are they canon characters? Are they in some kind of special Cathegory within canon? Is there a norm followed by other wikis?
elp is appreciated. --João Paulo Costa 19:21, 3 May 2009 (CDT)
I've noticed a large number of what I assume are bots signing up and creating pages for the purpose of advertising prescription medicine sales. Can something be done about this? --1stgenfan 17:24, 11 July 2009 (CDT)
Forgive me for this dumb question; I neglected to add an email address to my previous account and I've forgotten my password. Is there a way to retrieve it or should I just start a new account? 1stgenfan 2 15:16, 29 July 2009 (CDT)

Yet More Spam
Can anyone tell me if Mike Yamiolkoski is the same person as Mike Xeno? I was preparing an entry for "Sarcasm at 1600" and the PPMB entry presents both names: Xeno as the username, and the story is signed Yamiolkoski. For verifications, please see http://www.thepaperpusher.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5992&hilit=Sarcasm+at+1600

Anything I can Do?
I have way too much free time (one of the perks of an unhealthy social life) and thought I'd do some stuff around here, I have pretty good knowledge of Daria and used to be an editor at wikipedia so i know the ropes so are there any petty menial jobs that you wouldn't be seen dead doing but which a noob like me might enjoy? --Heydrian
Hey, Heydrian. The main things are creating wanted pages, expanding stubs, and correcting any errors you may see. Glad to have you on board. --Disco316 04:25, 16 January 2010 (CST)
Just popping on here to say "hi".
Been editing as I rewatch the series on DVD. I'm not much into reading or producing fan fiction, but good heavens - I didn't know the Daria fanfiction universe was such a busy place! (And that's meant in a good sense - a vibrant fanfiction community proves the Daria world is still alive!) Anyway, I'm just popping around editing here and there. I've made a List of bloopers and goofs in Daria of things that I've seen as I rewatch, and added a page on the Hindenburg.--Pittsburghmuggle 08:19, 31 May 2010 (CDT)

Regarding Leonard Lamm
Hello everybody. I've been trying to improve the Leonard Lamm character page but I do not know how to classify his activity. Is he a entrepeneur? A Utra-soda representative (I don't think so, but still...), as self promoting intermediate? How would you classify his activity?
--JPAGC 18:42, 29 August 2010 (CDT)
- Entreprenuer or Ultra cola representative. Both sound okay, I think. --Quiverwing 20:01, 29 August 2010 (CDT)
