Editing playing guides[edit]

Please do not remove entire sections of playing guides. If you wish to rewrite them that's fine, but do not just eliminate them entirely. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 21:06, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

So if there is a section in a guide about how to use fire magic on a warrior because Hamstorm worked in the past, I may not remove it? That is about the same (though a crit barrager sucks even more) -=-Koda Kumi 20:29, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
It may help to provide a reason in the edit summary or talk page to clarify why exactly you're removing it - without a reason, large removal of content may, at first sight, seem to be in bad faith. Your fire-magic-on-warrior example is a different scenario, as it's commonly known to be rubbish and is also relatively small in size. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 20:37, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I just noticed your comments on the talk page - proof of how an edit summary can be useful (e.g. "look on talk page") :). --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 20:39, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, I was thinking about the wrong subject :P But the information in there is really outdated and mostly nerfed to oblivion.

Signature[edit]

Not sure if you're aware of this, but the lack of a timestamp in your signatures made me think I should tell you that you don't have to enter the code for your signature each time, you can put the code in the nickname field of your preferences and tick the raw signatures box. Entering ~~~~ will then insert that code and also a timestamp. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 15:56, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Timestamp? I have no idea what you are talking about, man. Also, I found it despite being an utter wiki noob, thanks!
If I could only get the talk page link to work it would be great. I entered the exact same thing I use all the time but for some reason it is shot now :P Koda Kumi User Koda Kumi UT.jpeg talk 16:37, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
The timestamp is the "15:56, 10 December 2008 (UTC)" part. The talk page link won't work here because this is your talk page :P. You can test it out on the sandbox. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 17:02, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Recent edit to lynsey's archive pages[edit]

Hey hey, just a wee heads up but once something has been moved to an archive page it is no longer open to be edited further by the community and is really only their for reference purposes thus why your last 2 edits have been reverted. Sorry about any inconvenience caused by this. Please post new bugs however on the respective active talk pages. Thanks. :) -- Salome User salome sig2.png 00:14, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

That is illogical. They are called 'bugs awaiting fixes for a reason. Koda Kumi User Koda Kumi UT.jpeg talk 11:25, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes but it being archived means it's been read by the user and is no longer needed info as they already have it in mind. Also I'm not completely sure that Lynsey is the bug woman. I think we have a page for to report bugs. I'll go have a look and if i find the page I'll post it here for you. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 14:03, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Did you forget which guild you were in a couple of months ago? By the way, if you can still view their forums, you can have a good laugh. I certainly did. Koda Kumi User Koda Kumi UT.jpeg talk 09:13, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
Nah, they perma-banned me. What's there to laugh at? Also, what reason is there you're not on good terms with me? If I remember correctly, we agreed on quite a few things back when I was in that guild. Dark Morphon 13:23, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Hrm?[edit]

Soulmate? no. I am a girl, not a guy. She's a good friend of a circle of friends that I share things with. Not a best friend. I have that already as well as a soulmate. She was like family. Secondly, that issue should be a dead one. Thirdly, the ip thing? Others were calling it racial. No one looks at the actual picture, Only some have. I was being Nice to begin with. Just others are the ones that take it out of hand. Perhaps a peek at not just talk pages, but page history, etc. woulda helped clear things up. Things are settled with that. I don't have problems honestly with ips themselves. Just well... Let's take a look at this senario. Say I registered as an Ip. Okay, no problems. I play a bit, but Ip addresses can change the next day, month, etc. Also Ip Addresses can be spoofed aka like Proxy IPs. Different users can use the same Ip using a proxy. There are two policies on here, closely the same or similar. Some of us, including me was thinking ip was just an Ip, but with being actual account. As this Ip (back to the senario here) I was 'posing' to be an unregistered account. The ip with total 00s is not really an 'actual' ip or can be considered one. Others may use numbers, fine. Just if here's another thing. Registered user as Ip... that actual ip changes. Another user on here ends up with that ip... See where I am getting at? Where as actual numbers like 54 or names like your's? No problem. It's not a racial or an issue I have with ips as so many think and it's not a situation like that Sita. It's just in an opinion, if I'm gonna have an account , I would try not to have an account that could cause problems, aka create a nickname with bad words, or use numbers that'd resemble an actual ip, whether it's mine or not. I'd have to take in effect that if I use this longer than I 'mean to' ... Even if it's mine, It could end up being another's and that'd be 'impersonating' causing more problems than worth. Had thought about registering my IP as my name, before this handle, but I decided to have a name to resemble the character i have in the game. Hope this can clarify that I'm not such a 'bitch' as I may appear often times, but there's 'reasons' behind things. I could have been uglier, but I chose not to. Off for supper. 72.148.31.114 00:11, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

I have no idea what you are jabbing at, but you still have to tell me what gives you the right to insult people who use their IP as their handle on this wiki. Koda User Koda Kumi UT.jpeg Kumi 10:31, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

Could you stop messing with it and changing your name randomly? I know it is you, but others likely don't and it makes it difficult to recognise who is making a comment. Misery 12:16, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

People are good at remembering color schemes. I bet some people did not even notice I changed my name. Heavens User Koda Kumi UT.jpeg Delight 13:01, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
On the contrary, each time you do this, I think, "where have I seen a signature like this before? I wonder if someone has stolen the code from whassisname." Maybe you can express your creativity in some other way that doesn't put the burden on the reader to figure out who said what. Thanks.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 13:12, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

It's not too hard to recognize (unless normal people don't memorize everyone's signature), but it is unfortunately against the signature policy since it doesn't clearly identify you. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 18:28, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
It's well and grand if people already know who you are, like me, but people shouldn't have to have been around for the past two years just to be able to recognise who is talking to who on a talk page. Misery 12:51, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

I don't understand what this conversation is about. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 22:12, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Here we go again. "Spend half of your day digging through my 20k+ contribs or stfu naab!" and "U r n idiot Misery is kewl k?" comments make me sick. A person who holds power should be exemplary. Trolls are running rampant and they can point their finger at you and say "According to Misery and Auron, what we do is normal!" and continue bullying people with good intentions away. Or even worse, convince them that people they meet on this wiki are not people but just sock puppets (which you have done, do not even try to deny that). Do you see what you have caused now, and how it is counter-productive to a sysop's goals? Koda User Koda Kumi UT.jpeg Kumi 11:25, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
I don't think I have ever seen anyone justify their behaviour based upon my behaviour. I'm not even aware of anyone who is trying to emulate me, unless you mean some humour about horses which is hardly detrimental to the wiki. I never told you to dig through 20k+ contributions, you have attempted to give examples and I will attempt to address them.
I have no idea what I have to do with Nicky Silverstar, as far as I can tell I never had any interaction with him at all, I only made 5 edits before he left, so I will ignore that example. In fact, you were dancing on his talk page the day he left, so it is pretty rich for you to accuse me of being responsible for this behaviour. I didn't have to dig through 20,000 contributions to find that, would you like me to link you directly to the diff?
If you want to talk about Tanaric, his intentions were far from good. From day one after his return it was very obvious that he wanted power and influence and he fought to get it. He jumped all over anyone he thought might have influence to try and befriend them because he knew, like most people do, that who you know is a huge part of any politics, including wiki-politics. He also had rather extreme views, which he pushed often as soon as he was a sysop. Because he was keen to be a big man he spent a lot of time in IRC and spouted the same things there. This grated on certain people who disagreed with him, I largely kept out of it. My entire involvement in Tanaric's case came about when he was arguing with Pika Fan on IRC. Pika Fan said something about how if he had such a big problem with trolls he should do something about it. I don't remember exactly. Tanaric asked him what he was trying to say and I said "He is saying you are a bitch", which was my interpretation of Pika Fan's statement and I feel was very accurate. Immediately afterwords Tanaric banned a few people, including Pika Fan, for a few months. I can only assume that my interpretation of Pika Fan's statement threw him into a rage, resulting in an inappropriate, on-wiki response. Other sysops immediately leapt in, reverting bans and jumping down his throat. I tried to talk him down and get him to see how his actions could be interpreted: "I would also like to point out that at the moment it looks very much like you banned Cursed Angel for requesting your reconfirmation and Pika Fan for disagreeing with you. Misery 20:37, 23 February 2010 (UTC)"
"You could have done everything you did, but slightly differently, and avoided all the drama and current reconfirmation requests. My statement of how the actions could be interpreted seems to be accurate as evidenced by how people are reacting. I'm sorry for how things turned out, especially as I suspect my comments on IRC contributed. I don't see this ending well or without drama. Misery 21:03, 23 February 2010 (UTC)"
That was my entire involvement in that situation. Off-wiki behaviour is the only thing that could be considered bad and I stand by my interpretation of Pika's statement as accurate. Are you trying to blame me for Pika Fan's behaviour? He operates completely independently of me and always has done. I have not had any influence on his behaviour at all. We disagree on several fundamental points about the way wikis, the internet and the world work and should be, but we do get along rather well.
I also stand by comments I have made to Ryuu. I know Ryuu pretty well, him and I are still in contact, in fact I talked to him last night. I also stand by my comments about people on the internet. I consider it good, sound advice. It does not lead to the logical conclusion that you should treat people on the internet poorly, only psychopathic reasoning would lead you to that conclusion. Ryuu's life has been improved by not being on the wiki. What I said to him was good for him as a person, I don't really care if it was good for the wiki. I would like to think what I said to him was the right thing to do as a human being. If you can explain to me how the kind of co-dependent relationships that develop on the internet are good for someone trying to develop as a person I may be able to see the error of my ways.
What exactly are you blaming me for? Who are these people that I influence to behave badly? I mean specifically. I don't even need a diff linked, just tell me specifically what I have done wrong. You are very quick to jump on all these supposed bad things that I have done, but you never say what they are, excluding the few examples from above that I don't think are bad at all. It is impossible for me to defend myself against allegations if I don't know what they are. It is impossible to prove a negative. This is why laws against slander and libel exist. If you want to accuse someone of something, you better damn well have some proof of what you are saying. I know this isn't "the real world" and we don't have specific rules against slander or libel, but what you are doing is harassment and it is disruptive. I am asking you to provide evidence for these claims, or to cease making them. If you decide to persist, I will request sysop intervention in this problem and I guarantee you that I will link specific examples and diffs. What I am requesting is not unreasonable, if I am responsible for all the evils of the wiki it should be trivial for you to find something in my contributions, or wait 3 days and check my most recent contributions, to find evidence of my vile and evil machinations.
I haven't done anything counterproductive to a sysops goals.
I do have one question for you though. If I have done all of this, why are you the only person who can see it? Misery 12:23, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
"I am asking you to provide evidence for these claims, or to cease making them."
I cannot. The most I can do is asking you to stop telling people to be indifferent towards others. Of course, you are not the only one guilty of this, but this wiki is already filled with a negative atmosphere, and it could use some less hostility and bad faith (yea I know, irony, but I am a 'believer' of the ends that justify the means).
Why am I the only one who can see what you (though mostly indirectly) cause? Probably because many people do not care enough. Who knows? Koda User Koda Kumi UT.jpeg Kumi 14:06, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
So all of this is because of one article I linked in combination with things I have told Ryuu? Those are the only times I have ever told anyone to act indifferently that I can remember. Misery 14:45, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Bureaucracy[edit]

The bureaucracy around the feedback namespace was created for a two-fold purpose. First, to enforce investment by users into their suggestions. This promotes a better presentation of suggestions. Second, to act as a dampener to the amount of suggestions. No more "OMG buff this to 1/1/1" or "OMG nurf this to 25/90" --JonTheMon 18:33, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
