Spotlight Request Edit
Hi. Aliens Anthology Wiki looks really great. Could you please customize the Community Corner? Let me know on my talk page when you've done that and I'll be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 02:35, March 1, 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks for taking care of that -- I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! -- Wendy (talk) 02:18, March 2, 2012 (UTC)
Hello, so you are the owner of this wiki? I'm am Spacemarine1998, huge aliens nerd. If you are board you can talk to me
no bigge, hows the page?
Added the version of the Prometheus trailer that is officially licensed to Wikia to "Featured Video" on the main page. Obviously, you're welcome to remove it, but it seemed very relevant, and there was a nice open spot for it. Can't wait to see it!!!

Dead Link Edit
I noticed that since Newt's page has been renamed, clicking on her tab from the "Characters" section under the "universe" section on the upper bar leads to a dead link. any ideas on how to fix it? -- Gibson42 17:12, May 13, 2012 (UTC)
By the way, I noticed the same problem with the M577 Personal Carrier... Care to help with fixing it? -- Gibson42 18:09, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
As a fan, I tweaked the background a little bit in order to be able to see the alien on the right hand side of the content instead of being hidden behind the content, and to make the edges fade out into the background color for those with wider resolutions. I also turned up the transparency for the content area so the image can be see faintly behind the content. Originally, I was going to bring the background image out to the prevailing HD widescreen width, but I noticed that you were the one who uploaded it, and given your width choice, there's a good chance you're running a smaller resolution. Since you are the founder, I wanted to make sure it would still look good to you. I also created a favicon using the egg artwork from the first film, and pulled the Wordmark logo off the black background so that the background image would be visible through it. PLEASE don't feel like you are in ANY way obligated to keep these changes, I just happened to be doing other work here & thought these would be positive adjustments. If you would like to revert any or all of these changes, it can easily be done using the Theme Designer history ("Previous versions") dropdown. Can't wait for Prometheus!

(This was supposed to go out to you yesterday, but when I tabbed back this morning it never went out & was still in edit mode. :( Sorry about that, I would have preferred you to read this rather that having it appear that I/we just came in & started messing with stuff without a heads up. SOOOO glad you approve, I would have felt like a real ass if you hated it & didn't even get this message)
Wiki alliance. Edit
Hi, i am Mr.Scryer and i recently viewed this wiki and commented in one your blogs, this is indeed a good wiki and i am glad to see movie contiuity not mixed with comic ones. I would like to help edit this wiki and i would welcomeeyou or other members here to help my wiki http://xenoversal.wikia.com/wiki/Xenoverse_Wiki, as while your wiki concentrates on the xenomorphs, mine is about the Alien vs predator, however, unlike xenopedia, i will be keeping movie canon seperate from the EU (expanded universe) and to make the fans of one particular franchise happy, my wiki will view avp as three separate franchises, Alien, predator and Alien vs predator. Mr.Scryer. 15:44, May 30, 2012 (UTC)
The info i put into space jockey derelict may need to be deleted or at least not taken as truth yet ( i will be watching the film in two days so i can either confirm it or disprove) i got the info from reading the wikipedia but very recently the prometheus page's plot summary has been considerably trimmed down, with an editor saying that the previous long and detailed plot was vandalism. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Prometheus_(film)&action=history Mr.Scryer. 18:02, May 30, 2012 (UTC)
Apologies, it was the person who trimmed it down who was the vandal, so the info i put in space jockey and derelict is still perhaps authentic. Mr.Scryer. 18:08, May 30, 2012 (UTC)
Just wanted you to know it is a common misconception that Xenomorphs have exoskeletons. You can tell that they don't because the non-jointed areas bend, this would never happen if it did have an exoskeleton. --WAVE (talk) 05:31, July 15, 2012 (UTC)
New Spotlight Request Edit
Hi. Alien Anthology Wiki looks fantastic -- I love your custom skin! The only thing I see is that the main page is sysop protected. Could you please drop the protection to only block edits from new and unregistered accounts? Then I'd be happy to add the wiki to the approved spotlight list. -- Wendy (talk) 02:48, July 27, 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks for taking care of that -- I've added the wiki to the approved spotlight list! XD1 does nice work on skins :) -- Wendy (talk) 02:46, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
I've receceived your message and my answer is yes, I feel that I can accept the responsibilities of being an Admin.
hey i noticed you redone changes i done of the pics in several articles, my images to be exact, they are good quality, the ones before my edits were screen caps of the films, usually i dont like to share my pics anywhere except flickr, i will upload any good quality promotional, behind the scenes and production as long as they are used in articles, let me know if you want any pics i can dig up, please give my pictures a chance.

Related Wikis Edit
Just wondering what's the position in this Wiki on "bringing over" duplicate articles from other related Wikis. Some wikis require a direct link, others prohibit it completely.
Could you edit a section on the Aliens: Colonial Marines that shows what preorder bonusus you get depending where you preorder like with what they did on the Halo wiki?184.108.40.206 03:45, November 29, 2012 (UTC)

Roy Scammell imageEdit
Hey, Dino crisis fan. Thanks for creating the Alien: Isolation (comic) page on Xenopedia. Anyways, I was wondering if you knew where you got the picture of Roy Scammell on his page (Roy Scammell.jpg).
Hello wiki founder Dino crisis fan, I have just made three blog posts on this wiki regarding classification systems and speculation on several topics from the AvP franchises that you may find are of interest to you and I would love to know what you think of them.

Creation of a 'List of Xenomorphs' ArticleEdit
Hello Dino crisis fan, I have recently made a Xenomorph classification system blog post on this wiki and have been updating and tidying it up from the List of Xenomorph castes article (which I also created) on Xenopaedia, I have not yet completed converting it to the neater table format but once I have completed it do you think it is something that you would like to feature in an article on the Alien Anthology wiki?

Help with the Infobox game!!! Edit
Hello Dino crisis fan, I'm new here (although it’s only been three weeks since I joined this community) and I ended up doing some nonsense ... Without knowing it, I ended up reissuing the standard infobox for games in this community and I don’t know how to revert my error... SORRY! <:(--SamuelsXeno (talk) 05:51, May 28, 2020 (UTC)
Image is not fitting in the infobox Edit
Hello! the infobox image of the article I created shows an empty space as if the photo used didn’t fit completely, I’ve tried using other photos, but the problem occurs the same way, I would know how to make the image fit within the entire space of the box of image? --SamuelsXeno (talk) 15:22, May 28, 2020 (UTC)
New blog postEdit
Hi Dino crisis fan, I've created a new blog post titled 'Future Space-based Military Branches', it is not related to the Alien franchise but it contains content related to prominent elements within the franchise, such as space-based military force nomenclature like 'Space Marines Corps' and 'Aerospace Marine Corps' etc., as well as speculation on military spaceship design.
