There's codes. Were supposed to solvve them. Then we go down the rabbit hole. Blee =p

Manson revealed in an interview with The Hierophant that the codes weren't his intention, so they really led nowhere. Rtiztik 06:42, 24 May 2007 (CEST)


Why is most of the articles here just copypasta jobs from wikipedia? Deathwish 05:09, 7 March 2007 (CET)

If we are just going to copy from Wikipedia...can people at least get rid of the links to issues not related to Manson? seriously, we have links to things like 'John F Kennedy' in some pages...its as simple as getting rid of the [[]] :P Deathwish 04:28, 13 March 2007 (CET)

I'm trying to do just that. Since I joined in March 2007 I've been heavily updating articles, only to leave links related to Manson, for me or anyone else to create later on. I've also noticed a lot of the articles are directely copied from Wikipedia, and I can see why; it is a start. But since Wikipedia is general and MansonWiki pertains entirely to intricate information on Marilyn Manson, it is possible to expand further on articles here than you would on Wikipedia, which is another thing I've been doing, including adding articles for all of Marilyn Manson's songs which, on Wikipedia would be unnecessary. I've spent so much work on this site in my spare time, it's crazy! I wish I could be rewarded with some form of admin authority, but what can you do? Anyways it's a great site and I just wanted to say at least one person is trying to resolve implicant copypasta. Rtiztik 06:42, 24 May 2007 (CEST)

Try crediting your sources aswell, I view many pages with info but where did it come from, you must of got it from somewhere!

Background Image

Does anyone know how to add a background. I'm sure only Litso could do it, but it looks dull with the default skin. Scicks 07:45, 31 March 2007 (CEST)

Editing the Main Page

Some jokers keep messing up the main page. It should probably be locked or people should be forced to sign up.
Either way, porn pics were put up and even the whole Main Page was erased. I'd lock it myself, but maybe I need to be an 'admin' or else I would.

Well we tend to straight up ban spammers and people that edit in clearly bad-faith, followed by a page revert. It doesn't happen too often but when it does there's consequences. But alright I'll lock it. Windstorm 02:21, 19 August 2007 (CEST)

To be honest I'm not too fond of locking pages, actually if people want to add/edit something on the frontpage they're welcome to as long as it's not lemonparties, lol. I was at a festival the past few days, but I've banned the sucker and I unlocked the front page again. Maybe I'll lock it when this starts to happen more often, but I don't guess that'll be soon. Thanks for restoring and locking it in my absence though! Litso 18:39, 20 August 2007 (CEST)

Since the current logo takes too much vertical space, resulting in having to scroll down to read anything at all, the Manson Wiki is looking for a new logo. The requirements are:

  • Max. 300 pixels high
  • Max. 500 pixels wide
  • Must contain the text "The Marilyn Manson wiki"
  • Must contain a recent image of Marilyn Manson (i.e. from the Eat Me, Drink Me era)

If needed the font that was used for the current logo can be provided, just contact me, but another font could be fine as well. Please send your designs to Mail.JPG, as well as your name (including optional email address or website you want it to link to) so we can give the due credits. Litso 13:04, 15 January 2008 (CET)

Live show setlists

Hello All,

If interested I have an excel spreadsheet of nearly all the tour dates from 1994 to 2003. While that in and of itself is not too exciting, in it I have also compiled recording sources and set lists for well over 2/3 of the shows (probably closer to 5/6 from the ACS tour onward). This has been a work in progress for me since '97. It also includes most of the canceled tour dates with "official" reasons for cancellation and information regarding some of Manson's guest appearances with other bands.

While I don't have time to create articles for most of these shows myself, I would be happy to forward the file on to anyone who would like to take the time with it. Drop me an email at for a copy of the file....

Much thanks for the file. Windstorm 22:13, 26 January 2008 (CET)


I have request. Why this page is only english? It may be the page on other languages.

Other languages could be a project to take up later on, but right now MansonWiki is only written in English. I can only speak English, but the other administrator here is actually Dutch, and on the forums we often get visits from users of whom English isn't their dominant language. So maybe in the future there'll be different languages, but right now we're already working on enough upgrades, so I can't see other languages being implemented in the near future.

Generic Praise

I really wanna say that I'm blown away by the amount of content on the Wiki. The revisions have made everything look even neater and more professional and it gets better by the day. Shit, if I didn't know any better, I would say this was a site that was paid for by Interscope :P. Again, kick ass wiki, and here's to a (hopefully good) new album! ETPC 20:50, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

I saw you on the YouTube channel earlier too; just wanted to say thanks for your appreciation! :) Alden Weston 02:49, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

I found another 15.

In my listening to the old albums (getting ready for the new album) I found that there are 51 total tracks in the triptych. 51 is a reverse 15, as the story is in reverse chronological order. I have added this to the list of 15's and added a trivia of it to the triptych page.

Signed, The Saint of Stain. 12:34, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Another 15 would be if you counted all of Manson's digits after losing his arm in the "I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)" music video. :D


Why is there no section of these? (As far as I know, atleast.) I think it'd be fun to devote a section to humorous quotes, etc.

MansonWiki Redesign 2.0

And On The Third Day...

After careful deliberation and planning Jen and I feel that we have created something that is truly groundbreaking for the future of, We feel that it incorporates the key elements of what The Wiki should contain and presents them in a fashionable manner, full of vitriol and venom. While maintaining a User-friendly infrastructure that is certain to leave the proverbial 'scar' on the minds of users both old and new, as well as establishing a brand for MANSONWIKI.

We hope that you guys like it, as we tried to incorporate all of the ideas that we were presented and design something that we can all be proud of... Here is the URL to the link in the forum Manson Wiki Design Idea V2.0[ god ]speed 10:29, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh my god I love this! If there is gonna be a vote on it, "I vote a million percent yes!" -- In the words of Randy Jackson. lol Ron Zombie 20:07, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Updgrade to 1.15.0

MansonWiki has updated it's software from version 1.13.0 to 1.15.0 today. Please report any problems that occur the next few days below. Litso 09:46, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

New Logo Design

The proposed design for the new MansonWiki logo can be viewed please let us know your opinion. ‡-me-‡ 07:57, 6 February 2010 (UTC)


Below are the two choices for the Default page of MANSONWIKI, The winner will be the layout for the main page, while the other will still be an option to use in your My Preferences Tab if you so wish. Jen and I have spent weeks designing something that would not only make MansonWiki users proud, But to bring MansonWiki to it's rightful position as the Largest Source for Marilyn Manson News. Feel Free to Leave comments either in this discussion page, or on the forum.

i thought the website was to be relaunched on the 14th as a "gift" ??? --SPECTRE-01 19:55, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

That would have been nice, but nope. Soon, hopefully. Litso 14:48, 15 February 2010 (UTC)


You are absolutely right, Jen & I planned to have the site launched on Valentines Day, however due to unforeseen technical difficulties, it had to be delayed. Rest assured the design is completely finished and has been turned over to Litso, who will be programming. [god]speed 18:29, 22 February 2010 (UTC)



Based on the fact that this is a major event, which is months away... And currently the biggest announcement of 2010 Do you guys think we should replace the main image of Manson on the couch with the banner for HELL, ETC.

I have come in close contact with the Director of the Exhibit, and have been speaking to him on a frequent basis over the past few days, He told me that Manson Wiki will be the first to know of any developments on the Exhibit, and has even promised to send us the first photo of the exhibit once it is set up! You guys will be glad to know that based on Google Analytics we set a new record for page views yesterday thanks to links to MansonWiki's article on the art exhibit on Babalon, Provider Module, Twitter, et cetera. So perhaps put this up to celebrate this and usher in the coming revamp which will more than likely be completed by the time the exhibit is over. [god]speed 01:51, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

I like it, do it. it would make the banner size conflict in the news template cease. NickSixx

Then We could put a picture of all the new paintings as the featured image In The News section[god]speed 01:56, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, then we could also have more exposure to them and it would also make them easier to get to. I like the idea. NickSixx
Lagozzino do you like the changes to the main page? [god]speed 06:00, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Well I like the banner in and of itself, but its a tad too wide and stretching the page (or maybe that's just on my monitor?). But aside from that its cool. --Lagozzino 06:05, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up, I can change the size of it. I will do adjust it on my desktop, as my laptop is a widescreen. I like how it's set up to link directly to the article. We have began programming the new design [god]speed 06:10, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Love it!‡-me-‡ 10:29, 26 February 2010 (UTC)


  • We will also be implementing a new "multi-upload" feature, We have tested the FCKEditor as well as Multiupload on the new site and both work wonders. As Jen suggested, take time now to familiarize yourselves with the FCKEditor, It is a really nice WYSIWYG Editor (what you see is what you get) and will be OPTIONAL to use, the original wiki editor is still available, it's as simple as clicking disable rich text editor on the page you are editing. We are extremely excited but we still have some things to work out with it. Special thanks to Antickon, Who also programmed Babalon/The Nacht, whom we couldn't have gotten this redesign up without his hard work and dedication. I hope you all are as excited as we are, because you guys all work your asses off and i can guarantee that you will all be proud of this site we have worked on for months. [god]speed 00:57, 5 May 2010 (UTC)


  • What do you guys think of the new editor? We really incorporated it for new users that don't know Wiki coding, so I don't expect that the senior members will really care for it too much. But it does do some pretty amazing things for example when you go to link something it will search the entire wiki for whatever word you type to connect it to the article. I like the fact that one can easily click it on or off right in the edit menu. So if you want to use it, great, if not that's totally fine. We just hope it helps out those who don't know how to use wiki coding. [god]speed 09:18, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Personally i dont like richtext full stop but this ones pretty wicked, im going to stick to wiki text but like yuo said for new users its awsome :) Dave 10:47, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

What about this options? Will you launch it? --M1shael 04:26, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Where did that image come from M1shael? It's a possibility, send us the link so we can go over the details --M1shael 05:42, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Updates that mention interviews

This is purely a gramatical error, but you should look at rephrasing the update mentions of the "exclusive interviews". Specifically "On August 15, 2010, MansonWiki published its second exclusive interview with Hugh Warner, father of Marilyn Manson.". That last one reads that it's your second interview with Hugh, when in fact you mean to say Hugh is the one being interviewed on the site's second exclusive interview. Just thought you'd want to correct that to make it look more professional.

I've noticed this before. In one instance I actually changed it to "[...] its first interview, where it spoke with professional photography Tony Silva," but I digress I get lazy sometimes :P Alden Weston talk forum profile 13:41, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

"Fuck the Monsters"

I know Manson and Gaga had a supposed fling about a year ago, but I was wondering if anyone would know whether he was reffering to her or Combichrist. The reason I ask is because Combichrist's new album is called "Making Monsters" and they are getting alot of praise for that, which may make manson mad as I seem to recall an article (maybe on Vampire Freaks?) where Andy LaPlegua was compared to Manson. Just wondering if anyone else drew anything from this.... --God Module 18:49, 31 August 2010 (UTC)


I rotated the news, so that the upcoming events are top of the list, once it passes it drops to the bottom and everything goes back into the place they originally were. Example, I bumped the Bio to the top shortly before it aired, Same thing with Alternate Press which is coming up in 2 weeks, once that is over then Celebrity Ghost Stories is Oct 30th so it will be at the top. Etc etc. [god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 10:47, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

In the past there is that but in the future there will be notihing

how many time i do not do what i want to do but do what i dont want to do
