You mean the photo on the "how not to write a page" thing? Not to sound condescending, but wouldn't keeping the IP address right for all to see get us Wikia contributors in legal trouble (even if said IP guy or guys are trolls)? Isn't that going against the rules?
I remember either Attractions Magazine or Inside the Magic had a photo gallery of 2007 and 08 and smugmug. More importantly, I remember the 2007 photo gallery having shots of the alternate Jack opening scaremony (yes there was an alternate). However it seemed to have vanished. Just wanted to point something out.
I'm pretty sure they had the real Jack (James Keaton from twitter) perform in the press show (I remember there being Jack photos on flickr a long time ago. I'm gonna search soon when i can). Maybe he can testify?
Relating to the above, and to the XX collection, I was thinking of adding the photos of James Keaton and Dean Karr to the page and copyrighting them so it can be known who it belonged to. Or should we just wait and ask them on Twitter instead of what i previously suggested?
Here's one request of mine that should be put on the first list (considering I don't think it's too much of a hassle): can someone (either HHN wiki or someone) ask Jack/James KEaton if he has any proof of the "Alternate Press Openings" for 2007 or 2009. And heck, could we ask if we could take some of the Jack photos and apply it here?
And sorry if I sound pushy but can someone ask him like, Today?
I think while broswing through "HORRORNIGHTNIGHTMARES" facebook page I found a photo of Bloody Mary pre-transformation. However the image has not aged well. Can you ask, like Today/Tomorrow (sorry for my pushiness) if they still have it, and if they do, ask if they can post it and several others.
I think a good way to get their attention is to act like the "Caligula Cult" that used to troll us:
" wherr wherr is me Maro Agana phokos you (insert insult/untelligible here). I wunna sek sum Mirrorography. Mirrorography. Mirrors"
I asked it like this:
Hello again. Sorry if it appears that I am harassing you. But, I have been asked by an associate of mine on the wiki, if I could show you the attached image which is apparently proof of the previously mentioned opening scaremony.
Nice. That kind of knowledge is hard to come by. There is obviously a lot information about the Orlando event, but conversely information on the other 3 events is very scare with early Hollywood and Japan about tying. There is more information available about Hollywood post 2011 as their websites have been save onto The Wayback Machine. Singapore would be hard to find information about except for two websites: RWS Scoop (The official blog of Resort World Sentosa) and Dejki, which have between them documented basically everything you would want to know about that event.
Also I might request something about this later, but there's a guy on Youtube who goes by "Cow Missing" who posted some actual footage from the Hollywood vaults (such as Terror Tram videos. Maybe I'll ask thee later if you can ask him if he has footage from Orlando.
Videos, you have to upload them either from YouTube, Dailymotion or Vimeo but I think their then saved to the wiki. Audio, it has to be in a few specific formats, explained here: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Audio
Since this doesn't really advance this wiki in any way, I think it's fine to post this on the forums. And I don't think they allow "Guests" so I'll need you to send em' this message:
"Hello this is literally paranoid wiki user MadcapFalcone. I have a request as to the "Audio Mixes" of this community.
I plan on making my own audio project that involves not only Music, but also sounds from the websites, and there have been a few areas where I have not been successful. I want to ask you folks one of two things:
1. How do you manage to record/ extract audio from said sites? I've tried to do it myself, but I couldn't record it "Internally"- it also records the outside.
2. Now this is asking a lot (and this is why I said "one of two) but: can anyone (like Gambit) record the sounds from the links below? Maybe even put them in the previous Audio Mixes? Although I could see this being a problem with Reaper; maybe they should be put in a "Sounds of HHN" mix.
Much help would be obliged! If you're going with 2. (And if so, sorry for putting you all this trouble) Here are the links to what I'm looking for:
While I was looking at HHN videos on Vimeo, i noticed that Roddy has a page of his own. Curiously, I looked for HHN related content and found this:
This contains some small snippets from the Screamhouse queue video, Mary's Mirror, and The "Theater Rules". And they aren't recordings- they come straight from the vaults themselves.
So for the first part, I would like you to tell Roddy on twitter this:
"Hey this is MadcapFalcone. Can I ask you about something HHN-related? I'll admit though, this is quite a crazy request."
I think it'll entice em' more this way.
reporting it? Oh come on Ozian, certainly the trollposting can't get too-
"Freddy is scary. His nakedness though is erotic."
... yeah the Caligula group needs to go. (shudders)
I didn't read the rest but (BLEEP) is he referring to THAT Legacy? I sometimes wonder if it's not a cult or a single troll, but myself transformed into Mr. Hyde (seeing as I know a fair amount of Legacy and caligula). We might as well put the HHN Troll wiki.
Oh I was just mentioning I know about Legacy the member of HNN (based on topics I've browsed, he seems to be a real insider on HHN) and the movie/real historic figure Caligula (which is more interesting than the movie itself) . They are both unrelated. Hopefully.
I just say that because the only thing that connects the IP's (Except for Caligula) are that they all register as being in Miami when I looked it up. Should I just insert the link in the 28 discussion?
Today at the HHN Wiki, we received a troll article about a supposed Caligula house coming. It is so incredibly beautiful, I just have to share it with the community who don't go to the wiki. Sorry for this having nothing to do with HHN28, I just don't know where else I could put this. Warning for NSFW content. Io, Fredigula | Halloween Horror Nights Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia - Ozian16
Alright. Still I would merely say the title of the thing rather than link it directly though, as the mods might get furious. Also I would have talked/asked about HHN 28 a little in that post, and then talk about the Caligula nonsense.
Just some friendly suggestions!
Not to sound condescending, but I would take away the link rightaway and edit it to just say "Io, Freddyigula" as to not make a fuss. I would also edit it to talk about HHN 28 a bit to make it a little less offtopic.
I just deleated it. I might add it though. I got a reply off of VSTF. My two options are to, either protected to deleted pages from being remade, which won't work because it's a different page name each time, or ban all IP addresses from editing until they lose interest, which won't work because of you. So we basically have to grin and bare it. Unless you don't want to edit for the next month.
I that would be weird, as we usually get 3-4. But it did happen in 2009 (Leave It to Cleaver and The Spawning). Wasn’t that the forum members ignoring one original for being excessively inspired by an IP? So we still could technically get 3.
Wll I would count Dracula, Frankenstein as originals (sorta) due to the fact that they weren't specifically based on any likeness (unless you count Coppola/Christopher Lee). Even Chucky from what I heard was "original"- it was based on the films but given a rather original scenario (Giant Dolls)
Sorry for the long wait. I would post some of our more rare pics in the twitter as well as put it in the profile pic.
And when addressing someone like say Roddy in the case of a request, I would go for something like this:
"Hey buddy can I ask you some HHN related trivia?" or "Hey great fan of your work, can you (INSERT HERE)". I think they would respond more to a typical friend way rather than an authorative/"serious" bmanner.
I'll probably post more when I can but here's the general gist.
Hmm. I should probably use a more "friendly" tone when making enquiries, that would probably make them more likely to respond. As for the profile, I was going to request an actual wiki word Halloween Horror Nights Wiki logo to use on the wiki and any social media accounts I merely haven't gotten to that bit.
I think either DesigningFear or charles Bremer (who owns it) has a Full HD version of this, could you be so kind and ask one of them today if they could send a pic on Twitter (and if we could post some of their pics on the wiki)?
I think some updates should be in order. MAybe ask something like "Um what's MAldaken Pass?" or some newly added pics from our wiki (the rare ones). It might boost up some popularity points for us (be sure to tag some fellow HHN tweeters)
"Hey an anonynous user of my wiki has told me that you might hold an HD version of this pic below. If you have it can you send it through here (also can we use some of your HHN pics for our wiki please?)?
(INSERT IMAGE HERE)"
I would post a Screamhouse pic and tag Roddy, HNN, any random HHN account.
I'll ask them. My only concern with the image concept is that, it might attract the person who actually owns the rights to the images and get them to demand that we take them off as 99.8% of the photo's on the wiki have been uploaded without the compyright holder's knowledge or consent.
It depends whether or not they would fit within the scope of the wiki. We would need a vote. Also whether we should have pages for the properties within HHN (i.e Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, SAW, Nightmare on Elm Street etc..) or not.
Yes. These things take time, especially with real life stuff. I'll get to contacting these people eventually and get there support for the wiki. Until then, we have to make do with what resources on the event we have.
I noticed in some type of "message thinga ma bob" (don't know what it's called) that there has been some trouble with the Fidram facebook.
Allow me to explain a few things. First I think i unintentionally posted some misleading info. None of the pics of M. Agana are in his album (except for a shot of her makeup materials from the 2008 commercial). There ARE some cool never before seen (in full resolution anyway) pics, but i only found them in the comment sections of some of his photos (specifically when he was dressing up as her for Halloween).
I think it would be best if somone on this wiki asked him personally if he could lend some pics so they could be featured on the wiki gallery- I'm uneasy about having an account on my own (which is why I don't have one here). Maybe he can be a contributor to this wiki? (For that matter has anyone contacted KArr for permission?)
Thank you for clarifying that, I’ll look in the comments. I was also thinking that the wiki would need to get an official Facebook page to make requests like that, as it would be odd for me to request them in a personal capacity and so I would need to get round to making one.
Thnaks for the response. I think when i was younger i read a press release that titled Bloody Mary this way. I don't know it was authentic or not (but i think it otherwise matched the info of 2008), but if it was, I just decided to put it in because it sounded cool.
And yeah, there should be a facebook page for this.
Oh and by the way, there's two people I know on the internet who could also be of service:
Legacy from IU forums (and sometimes HNN). He attended the years 2002 , 2003, 2004, 2009,and 2010. He also knows what goes on at HHN due to some sources (and he hates leaks). He could probably give the detail on those years (particularly Screamhouse)
tumblr account "the Vsherette" (formerly Drplagueiswhite). She has rare pics and videos of HHNs of the past (recently she posted BTS shots from the 2006 commercial and a never before seen news report from XX)
Hello I am the other admin on this wiki. About the house receptions thing. I always thought that we could do the receptions of the houses as long as they are not biased. I think we should do a vote on whether or not to do house receptions. Also we need a 3rd vote on whether these should be called scareactors or scare-actors and whether it is scarezones scare-zones or scare zones. And the Bloody Mary pics thing. Sure I would like to see the link. Sorry my grammar is bad :/
The main reason for the contradiction is that, I just genuinely haven't got around to seeking out all the weird generalised opinions posted on the wiki before I adopted it and deleting them. There have just been tasks which have seen more critical at the time. Sorry if I appear hypocritical to you, I'll check more thoroughly in the future.
As for The Bloody MAry pics.... www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.201578340575.261457.534250575&type=3
I think it would be good to insert some of the images here so it can get preserved in case it is lost. Of course we would have to get Dean Karr's permission to post said pics.
I also know of another person on facebook who has rare mary pics (my researching was is was for a little hhn project)... however I'm unsure if I should name drop him, considering hes not in anyway involved in HHN itself, and I dont follow him. (I'm too timid around social media- I borrowed a friends account).
Interesting.. Weren't pictures like that leaked back then, spoiling the surprise of Bloody Mary's design? I'll see what I can do about them. If you think the second person's materials could help the wiki, then it wouldn't hurt to allow me or Luigi to have a look at them.
The person doesn't have an HHN album with MAry pics (I already did some serious detective work for unique HHN pics for my now-defunct project), but there has been some interesting photos sighted and I think he would gladly give the rest to you if you asked.
Um, what's with Sweet 16: The Director's Cut? The description does NOT match with what the actual event show was. Also where did it say that Harvest of the Souls was due to the Terra Servants? Interestinmg idea, but I don't remember seeing anything officially state that...
Sorry to sound harsh, but I think some professional contributors like yourself oughta take a look at it. Thanks!
I wasn’t at HHN that particular year, so I have to rely on secondary sources only (and Dr. Jimmy). Also, it’s night in the UK so I won’t be able to do research until tomorrow sorry. But if the information is wrong I’ll sort it.
Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood events also should be sorted by year and not by title because of the limited and often conflicting online information about them, as well as the lack of official names for later events. That you for helping to make the Halloween Horror Nights Wiki a better place. -Ozian16.
Hello. Halloween Horror Nights Wiki looks good, but I realize it is well past October. Are you still interested in the spotlight? If so, please let me know and I will be happy to add it to the list for January or February.
I think a spotlight would be good for the wiki, as it is the slow season for news right now and it could help drum up intrest. But could it possibly be in late February? To time it with the possible announcement of this year's dates and tickets.
It's usually better to pick something that is graphic/picture based rather than words. Remember that it will be displayed at only about 100px wide, so that much text may be hard to read. I can use it if you are really set on it, but I would suggest you look for something wtih some sort of image.
