  • If a conversation starts here, I will normally continue it here, as I find it much easier to follow a conversation on one page. Likewise, if I comment on someone else's talk page, I prefer being replied to there, for the same reason. The talk page will be on my watchlist once I've posted on it, so I won't miss a reply.
  • I request that messages on my talk page are written with at least decent grammar. It doesn't have to be perfect, by any means, but if I can't easily understand what's being said, I can't honestly deny that it somewhat impairs my willingness to work it out and, if relevant, respond to it.
  • All messages should be signed in accordance with the wiki's signature policy.
  • If you have any help requests, particularly with coding, feel free to ask. I'm apparently good at wikicode, at least according to several people on FFWiki. Including some that I think are better than me :P
  • I'm an admin, so you can also talk to me about blocks, moving or protecting pages, etc.

Fresh talk page for 2016, why notEdit

-- Sorceror Nobody, 01:42, January 28, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you Edit

I'm one of the fighters against vandalism, in particular the equaranon. I've been fussing and discussing with him/her/it on mspabooru frequently, and didn't know it had this wiki as a hideout :0 So, thank you for fixing that while I was asleep. NepetaLeijon27 (talk) 09:50, January 28, 2016 (UTC)

Well, I mean, I'm an admin, so I'm just doing my job. Which is something I should do more often on here, to be honest ; )
Thank you for the reversions and such that you've done recently : ) -- Sorceror Nobody, 17:48, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

Whoops, I'm sorry about the Dave Strider page. That was the first time I'd seen it on there, and it was grammatically incorrect, so I fixed the grammar and that was it. I didn't add it there myself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Beygirl1818 (talkcontribs)

Concerning Ableism and Gamzee Edit

Part of me doesn't much understand why I'm being ranted at for calling Gamzee Makara a psycho, when technically, he DOES fit the definition of a psychopath. I understand its ableist, but its also the truth concerning him, at least as far as I can tell. Per Ankh ED 00:08, April 2, 2016 (UTC) The main reason this confises me is because LITERALLY the enire fandom has called Gamz psycho at one point or another. Per Ankh ED 00:21, April 2, 2016 (UTC)

People will always rant. I agree that he does seem to fit the definition, but it's such a strongly loaded word that it's probably simpler to just avoid using it... is there a specific reason for the word to be used? And where is this ranting happening? I'm not seeing it on the wiki...
I'm fairly confident that at least one person in the fandom, someone, somewhere, hasn't called Gamzee psycho. So you might want to be less liberal in using the word "literally". Especially with emphasis, which implies you mean literally literally :P
On an unrelated note, a reminder once again that the severity of vandalism does not alter which warning template is used. Edits we can believe were good faith errors get warning 1. Evident bad faith, even if only minor, gets warning 2 -- Sorceror Nobody, 19:27, April 2, 2016 (UTC)
I see. And it was on tumblr. And I got the warning template memo. Several times. Thank you.Per Ankh ED 19:30, April 2, 2016 (UTC)
Well I mean if you're using the word on tumblr, you're going to get about fifty times more people screaming at you for it than you would elsewhere on the internet :P -- Sorceror Nobody, 19:31, April 2, 2016 (UTC)
Fortunately for me, it was responded to with a private chat instead of a reblog. It was only that one follower, and nobody else complained... Per Ankh ED 19:33, April 2, 2016 (UTC)

Editing Privledges Edit

I'm seriously thinking it's time we take steps to prevent new and anonymous contributors from editing, because more often than not, they turn out to be vandals. Per Ankh ED 23:27, September 4, 2016 (UTC)

You can start a thread about it in the forum if you want, but of course this is hardly the first time it's come up, and we've always decided that we're not doing blanket prevention for new and anons unless there's a really severe attack.
Besides, it's Wikia that we'd have to convince of the severity of the issue anyway, since even sysops and bcrats don't actually have the power to take the steps you're proposing – the Special:ProtectSite tool is, by default, only usable by Wikia staff and VSTF. As far as I know, they're pretty reluctant, as a rule, to apply it themselves unless the problem is incredibly detrimental to the wiki in question (and even more unlikely to grant the permissions to the wiki's own staff).
Trust me, we really don't have it that bad -- Sorceror Nobody, 23:54, September 4, 2016 (UTC)
-sigh- Very well. Though it seems they've increased slightly since the comic's ending. Per Ankh ED 23:55, September 4, 2016 (UTC)
Oh, I agree. But then, it always seems like it's increased. I think we just go through waves, and every time attacks happen, we can't help but compare it to the quiet period that preceded it -- Sorceror Nobody, 23:58, September 4, 2016 (UTC)
I suppose so. Per Ankh ED 23:59, September 4, 2016 (UTC)

I think I'll just ... Step away from the wiki for now. Per Ankh ED 23:36, September 7, 2016 (UTC)

That may not be a bad idea, for a little while. Do come back as soon as possible, of course : ) -- Sorceror Nobody, 23:38, September 7, 2016 (UTC)

If anyone needs me, I'll be in the Artifact Database wiki. Per Ankh ED 23:40, September 7, 2016 (UTC)

I walk away for a week...Edit

...and some anon is replacing Skaia's entire page content with a wikipedia page about beef or a cow, or something. In Slovak. I would love to know how or why this guy, who has used multiple accounts to do it over and over, is doing this at all. Per Ankh ED 19:15, September 19, 2016 (UTC)
