  • May I ask why you undid my edits on Bellamy and Echo's pages? I was trying to standardize the number of people killed as some are written as words and some are written as numbers.

    • If I may step in -- I believe it's like a standard thing, where you write numbers out as words but once they hit, like, eleven or something, then you just type them out. It's easier to write 299 than two-hundred-ninety-nine.

    • Then that is what I will do from now on, thank you for getting back to me so soon.

    • Yes, as KeepOnKeepingOn said. Sorry for not responding til now.

    • This wiki doesn't have a formal policy (that I recall). In general we follow Wikipedia's manual of style, so see MOS:SPELL09.

  • Ok. I've held my tongue as you've seemed to follow some people (including me) around "correcting" some things that are purely subjective. Some actual corrections, which are great, and some serious "tomato, tomahto" stuff like surmised vs assumed.  Fine. In the end it doesn't matter whose exact wording "wins" - the important thing is getting a solid account of the show out there. The great thing about wikis is that we're all (supposedly) on the same team, trying to make things better.

    What doesn't help with that, however, is being rude to each other in comments. Including editing comments. This time it was to me: "Please speak English when you revert not gibberish." Which could use a comma between revert and not, ironically, considering it's griping about improper English, but let's let that slide.

    The salient point there: We all walk a line in edit-comments between being concise, vs thoroughly explaining what we did to fellow editors. If you have a problem with a fellow wiki editor's style or use of fairly common internet abbreviations, please be forthright and bring it up to them, as I am doing here. Don't simply snark backhandedly in comments, leading us to wonder what you're grousing about.

    I'm not the first to whom you've been rude. In the last week alone, there was "The reacter [sic] is NOT in the basement of the Palace. You'd know this if you paid attention." - which I surmise/assume was directed at WarGrowlmon18, since I think he made that edit. No need for the "if you'd paid attention" since we're equals, even colleagues. If you are so frustrated in your life that you feel the need to denigrate people who have the same goal as you... IDK, please pet a fluffy animal of your choice, or take up a relaxing hobby or sport, or work out your aggression in a game where smacktalk is celebrated.  To be needlessly hostile in a place like this is to turn a nice community toxic.  Please think about your words and use them more carefully. Or at least be open & honest if you're going to be confrontational. Doesn't seem too much to ask, considering this is supposed to be a community where "assume good faith" is a keystone policy.

    Cheers.

  • Heya, 

    About the Music field: yeah def pointless to have a space for Episode in the Ep's page. I had just copied the row from Music, but your edit makes sense.  They used to have a field in episode pages about where to purchase the track, but I left that part out because looking around it seemed several users didn't want that. It's def a loaded question now, don't want to be seen as promoting Amazon vs Apple vs Google etc. 

    I'm thinking we should probably remove the field in the table along with in the rows, wondering if it should be replaced with anything in particular (could see a link to the lyrics or youtube or something, but again that's getting into promotion issues). If you have thoughts on that, great. If not, I'll just remove the field from the table; if someone else wants to add another column.... good for them (in a not passive-aggressive way).

  • Dear Wellsworth96,


    I have one more question to ask you. Why do you care so much about the James Crockett picture from the Red Sun Rising?

      Loading editor
  • Dear Wellsworth96,

    The James Crockett picture from the Red Sun Rising, makes me haunted of the memories when he tortured Octavia. I'm just scared. I cannot let the picture be shown in the Categories. The James Crockett picture from the Red Sun Rising, makes me upset, due to the haunting memories of him torturing Octavia. It will make me cry.

    • As Janus100 told you, how you feel cannot dictate your edits. That is not a valid reason in my eyes and your picture is horrible quality. I am not trying to be cold hearted, but it's just a picture.

        Loading editor
    • Eugene....... let me repeat: "Your feelings over a character or a specific scene are not valid justifications for why a specific image should or should not be used." You're making this image sound like James is all bloody, snarling, and shooting lasers out of his eyes. However, the image you're so upset about has nothing graphic or violent in it.

      If you're so upset over this scene, I'm surprised you're watching the series. You must be crying yourself to sleep only to awaken with violent nightmares every single night given all the scary and haunting scenes.

      I'm sorry for being callous, but your argument went from silly to absurd. Please desist with it. If you can't handle this series, then you shouldn't be editing this wiki.

  • Hi, I noticed you've partaken in the edit war of deceased vs. dormant for floated hosts. I think a lot of us can agree a prime is only deceased once their drive is destroyed or they are not woken up forever. We cannot say either is true beyond a doubt, so I think deceased (presumed) is a good compromise. This says she is probably dead, however it's possible that she isn't. What do you think?

      Hi WarGrowlmon18. I've been working on wikis for over a decade, as an admin for over three years. I'm familiar with many of the tricks that bad actors use on wikis. I've locked individual pages. I've done IP range blocks. I know how to contact staff for checkuser. I've temporarily disabled IP edits on whole wikis. In short, this isn't my first rodeo. At this time there hasn't been any actions to indicate more severe measures are necessary. Before you ask me to lock down the entire wiki, please provide evidence that it's currently necessary.

      To reiterate, I've been around the block. Something I've learned is that the majority of bad actors don't know how to jump IPs. Those who do jump, often jump within a specific range (making range blocks very effective). Bad actors who jump to random IPs around the world are very, very rare. You can block IP edits, but that doesn't prevent them from creating multiple new accounts, etc. If someone wanted to be persistent enough, they can wreck havoc. However, the vast majority of people have better uses of their time and go away after being blocked.

      The reason I'm not taking more serious actions, is because there is no evidence that such actions are necessary at this time. The issue was one IP who's now blocked. Until they start jumping, it's still a one IP issue.

      Well, I hope you're right, honestly. I was just giving advice as one Admin to another based on my own experiences. I don't Admin on this Wiki, but one of the Wikis I DO hold it on I've probably been Admin for close to a decade. To be frankly honest, I'm still not sure how I got that one as I was suddenly promoted without seeking the job, but at this point the automatic welcome message there (and it IS a very active Wiki) is signed as coming from me. Which I don't know how that happened but don't really care. The other one, the one I mentioned, I sought that job which required a vote. It was unanimous aside from one guy who got an Infinite Ban shortly thereafter because he was a major troublemaker.

    • And as one admin to another, I'm asking you to provide actual evidence that at this point a single IP block is insufficient. Because right now you're making a lot of noise out of nothing.

      Yes, I know, sometimes an IP jumps, but I also know that majority of time they don't. So I don't lock pages after one bad IP. Nor do I do range blocks over one IP. And I certainly don't lock down entire wiki over one IP.

      And this issue is literally one IP. But you're making them into an army that hasn't appeared yet. Maybe they will, maybe they won't. Meanwhile, my goal is to provide as open an environment as possible and locking down only when it becomes necessary.

      Right now, you've wasted much more of my time than that IP has and haven't given me one bit of useful information.

  • The Flame isn't a person, no, but its an AI. Its specifically called an AI by both Becca and Raven. We also put a Kill Count for the termination of the original ALIE. If we did that for ALIE's termination, we should do the same for her counterpart's.

    • If we're treating ALIE 1 as a character and ALIE 2 as an object, then ALIE 1 gets character infobox and ALIE 2 gets object infobox.

  • Who you know that John Murphy will appear in 'Blood of Sanctum'?

    I agree, it is most logical...... but honest that episode was NOT yet on screen. True, I can see Murphy in the promo teaser 6x13.

  • I think we should create pages for them. They were minor characters sure, but we have pages on here for minor characters with lesser roles and Layla has become a recurring character.

    • re:Gavin - huh, did I? Well, I must have thought he had co-starring credit. Anyway, feel free to point me to the guidelines when I'm wrong.

      re:conflict - Board:Suggestions is for all of our community editing discussions. As for Earthkru - nope, it's not a canon term, but neither is "Bellamy's Militia". Sometimes fans have to make up a term when canon doesn't offer one. If you want to include CoG, then "War Against the Primes" may be better, or even something more generic like "Sanctum War".

      I might go with Sanctum Conflict. A war implies open fighting and battles. So far there's just been some skirmishes and assassinations.
