Hey there, welcome! Glad you like the wiki, and I really appreciated your additions to Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death). Thanks a lot :) Litso 23:40, 3 August 2008 (CEST)

Fuck... There must be a bug somewhere, I had the same problem with an image gallery disappearing, We'll sort it out. [god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 18:26, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Copy paste[edit]

Hello, please know you are welcome here to edit the wiki. However, please do not copy paste directly from wikipedia. We encourage editors to write in their own words. Also, your direct copy paste to the Holy Wood article removed links that were relevant here. Thanks ‡-me-‡ 11:38, 8 August 2010 (UTC) (Admin)

The "original" article was a copy/paste of the Wikipedia article. Besides, the sections I did copy/paste were ones I wrote myself. Red marquis 02:45, 9 August 2010 (UTC)


Thank you so much for your work here, extremely well written. ‡-me-‡ Manson Wiki Administrator 06:14, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Thank you very much. It is really great to have editors who write well. [god]speed 07:07, 10 August 2010 (UTC) Manson Wiki Administrator


While your content is well written, Readers should not have to be armed with a dictionary in order to understand the points you are attempting to portray. Example: "by the kratocratic plutarchy" just as an example. [god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 12:07, 28 August 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for adding these :) It was just the other day that I added them to my "to do" list :P ‡-me-‡ - MansonWiki Admin 13:17, 1 September 2010 (UTC)


Hi Red, I've been watching your edits and I'm becoming increasingly concerned as the the analytical nature of what you have to add. As mentioned before, we try to strictly avoid analysis and theory as I'm sure you can understand, these things are largely interpretive. We generally like to provide information with references and I've yet to see any? Your contributions are well written as always and it's not that we don't appreciate or understand the concepts that you are discussing by any means, I personally have been very much into interpretation and analysis of Manson's work. However, being an encyclopedic data base, there isn't much room for them. For example: It is written within the Holy Wood concept the "Winter of Discontent" (and its resolution on Valentine's Day), how so? And do you know where this lyric was taken from and why it was used? Or is this your interpretation? If so, I'm sure you can understand that these things are probably best left for private essays or analysis threads. ‡-me-‡ - MansonWiki Admin 08:35, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi Red, first of all I must apologize too. I deliberately questioned you to prove a point. That being that content that is of an analytical nature is not always accurate and probably best left off of the wiki. The term "The Winter of our Discontent" was actually first coined by Shakespeare and put to print in Richard III, 1954. It's relevance in the song President Dead, is that at a 1963 news conference, a reporter questioned Kennedy: "Reporter: "There is some impression and talk in the town and country that your Administration seems to have lost its momentum and to be slowing down and to be moving on the defensive. Could you comment on this feeling in the country?" President Kennedy: "I think we are making some progress so that if you ask me whether this was the 'Winter of Our Discontent', I would say no. If you would ask me whether we were doing quite as well this winter as we were doing in the fall, I would say no, too." Kennedy was assassinated later that year, hence the lyric "we can't all be martyred in the winter of our discontent." ‡-me-‡ - MansonWiki Admin 08:43, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
If you're looking for somewhere to bounce ideas, concepts and analysis regarding the triptych, here's a good place to start. Rest assured the administration does watch over edits here. While we could write these articles ourselves, we like to encourage fans to add and participate in the creation of Manson Wiki, "for the fans, by the fans." ‡-me-‡ - MansonWiki Admin 11:50, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Give us about 15 minutes, So that <me> can look over it as well. :) [god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 11:06, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
  • The first clip of Mansonspeaking into the camera was a podcast that was uploaded to prior to the release of Holy Wood. I've seen the other clip before as well It's from Dotmusic, which was popular during 99-00 and subsequently shut down in 03. The interview was released following the release of the album. [god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 08:28, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Highly doubtful. :p

[god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 00:30, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

It is in the sense of linking back and forth. But that doesn't extend to mirroring sites. [god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 00:48, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hey! Thank you very much for your edits, they are brilliant! --M1shael 23:34, 29 April 2011 (CDT)

I'm not finished yet. Lots of info still to embed. -Red marquis 01:10, 30 April 2011 (CDT)

I'll let you place it where ever you would like it. Harlequin 07:58, 25 May 2011 (CDT)
Thanks. I'm curious though, what privileges does this new position come with? -Red marquis 08:10, 25 May 2011 (CDT)
Here is the list of User group rights, you also have access to the crew forums - Harlequin 08:24, 25 May 2011 (CDT)
Did you take a look at the crew forum yet? There are a few things there that you might want to contribute to :) Harlequin 05:42, 27 May 2011 (CDT)
The Crew forum is located at the bottom under Staff, I'm particularly interested in having input into the latest interview we have been invited to conduct. Harlequin 08:36, 27 May 2011 (CDT)
This is embarrassing. I still can't find it. -Red marquis 09:16, 27 May 2011 (CDT)
My fault, you seem to have two accounts on the forums and I changed permissions for the wrong one, try nowHarlequin 09:59, 27 May 2011 (CDT)
Found it. -Red marquis 10:01, 27 May 2011 (CDT)

You don't need to manually input each file for the albums, just upload a new version of the file. Osiris 07:24, 7 June 2011 (CDT)

Why do you keep manually changing the album artwork in each article. All you have to do is go to the page file and upload a new version of the file. Osiris 07:40, 7 June 2011 (CDT)

This is fine by me. I need a mindless task to clear my head tonight. -Red marquis 07:43, 7 June 2011 (CDT)
Don't mind what you're doing but it makes it harder to see other edits in the recent changes o_O If you're looking for things to do we always need interviews added, you can skim current pages for spelling and grammatical errors, we could do with threads created on the forums some of the news items to encourage discussion and I have more if you get bored with those suggestions :p Harlequin
There are a couple of paintings that have yet to have pages created for them too. :) Harlequin 08:09, 7 June 2011 (CDT)

Protecting Pages[edit]

Just wondering why you're protecting pages? The wiki is supposed to be editable by anyone o_O The exception would be the main page, competition pages and interviews. Harlequin - MansonWiki Admin 05:16, 24 June 2011 (CDT)

If you noticed, vandals have taken on to the site recently. I'm just trying to prevent anymore of it. -Red marquis 05:39, 25 June 2011 (CDT)
Understood, we usually just block the offender rather than limit access to pages Harlequin - MansonWiki Admin 22:56, 25 June 2011 (CDT)

Here's the quote: --M1shael 12:41, 28 August 2011 (CDT)

Red Marquis, the article was not complete. As you should know, by way of my requests to you for sources, I'm well aware of the requirement to write an article. However time did not allow. The wiki is a work in progress as you know. But seeing as you have completed it already, I thank you. BTW....Tone down the attitude in the shoutbox. Thanks Harlequin - MansonWiki Admin 15:04, 28 August 2011 (CDT)
Sorry about that and thanks for the thanks. -Red marquis 15:08, 28 August 2011 (CDT)
Nice to know you're on to things ;) Harlequin - MansonWiki Admin 15:13, 28 August 2011 (CDT)
