By posting here you agree to and accept the following rules.
- 1. Post new comments at the top using a level 2 header.
- 2. Post all comments in correct English and grammar. This means real English, not the bastardised forms from the colonies.
- 3. You will not be a moron. Seriously, you're supposed to be a human being, act like it here please.
- 4. You will sign your posts in the conventional manner, this means with your own signature and with a datestamp. Templated signatures may be used without restriction provided they do not negatively impact the operation of this page.
- 5. Zergers have no right to post in my userspace. Any edits made by users who have characters on the Resensistised Zerg Liste may be removed by any user.
- 6. Using the "+" button is not a good idea. I hate scrolling to the bottom of the page (talk pages get very long) and your reply will be ignored on principle. If my attention is required for something or is a procedural message, kindly place it at the top of the page in accordance with rule 1.
These rules apply without exception to any page in my userspace, that's any page that begins User:Iscariot or User talk:Iscariot. This means you shouldn't go hunting for other pages to just be annoying.
Settling it once and for all
User:Aichon/Other/Iscariot's Vandal Data. The name of the link says it all. Unlike the others, I am asking for your input, since if there's going to be anyone that objects, it's going to be you. I'm gonna try and contact all of the sysops and former sysops who are still active around here and have been involved with his data or might have an interest in it. Even if I miss a few, I figure enough people check all of your pages that most people who need to see the link will see it. ;) —Aichon— 01:30, 21 April 2010 (BST)
- I know the correct state of my vandal data. That is not the point of contention. The fact is that Boxy was allowed to falsify my data without providing a single iota of proof or even reasoning. There was no "This should have been de-escalated due to linked contributions here", no "Due to X contibutions from here to here, I've de-escalated to following" and certainly no "This is the amount of time to be taken off future bans due to being served incorrectly". Tell me Aichon, how much ban time do I have in hand? Didn't think you'd know, because despite asking DDR, Bob and shockingly Boxy multiple times to put the note on the page, nothing was done. Tell me again where they were showing good faith there.
- Until Boxy is forthcoming with this basic list of why he falsified my vandal data I see no point in entertaining any further debate on the subject, I'm not the one at fault here, common courtesy dictates that this explanation should be provided, but no-one else seems concerned by his behaviour. I view any further pages on it to be attack pages against me and concerned with covering Boxy rather than getting the basic facts that should have been provided by him so long ago. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 09:51, 21 April 2010 (BST)
- *Sigh* You didn't even read it first, otherwise you wouldn't be asking those rhetorical questions. Truthfully. Honestly? That stings. I put in a lot of work, and to have it not even glanced at before being blown off...
- If you check the page, you should see that I do provide an answer for how much ban time is theoretically due to you (9 days, 7 hours, 1 minute if you'd like to know, and yes, I counted every minute of it and documented where it came from), I do link every single group of 250 edits following your escalations so that de-escalations can be verified, I do provide explanations for what your data should be (probably 10,000+ characters on that subject alone), and it's not a matter that I'm bringing up for the sake of debate.
- I'm not opening up a discussion where we're going to hash it all out. I'm presenting an answer to the question of what it should have been all along. Whether or not Boxy falsified data...that argument is tangential and unimportant in the context of what I've written up, and shouldn't stop the truth from coming out, especially so when I'm handing it to you on a silver platter. I didn't create an argument to prove you or anyone else wrong. What I did was set out to find out the truth about the matter, and I believe very strongly that I have succeeded. I'm inviting you to look over my findings, and as I said in my promotion nomination, I'm not interested in playing politics. I'm here to do a job, I did it here, and I did a damn fine job, if I do say so. I'm not expecting a thank you by any means, but I am looking for people who were around at the time to fact check me.
- So please, as a courtesy to me, would you look it over? I spent quite a few hours documenting everything after I had completed my research, and it should only take a few minutes to read through. The end result is favorable for you, but not because I planned it that way or was trying to appease you; it's favorable to you because that's what the evidence shows is the correct course of events, and I've documented it each step of the way. —Aichon— 10:26, 21 April 2010 (BST)

- The deletions and VB things are stupid, which is why I said talks. Is there really no way to bring a ban on creating arbies cases? :o --Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 20:48, 12 April 2010 (BST)
- Look at it the other way. What is the source of all the cases? Is there a mechanism to somehow stop one party from being antagonised? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 20:52, 12 April 2010 (BST)
- Not really. The arbitration system is there to settle disputes, by barring him from participating there (in any capacity since you can't offer to arbitrate from a talk page) you force him to use edit wars, vandalism and other admin pages to settle his disputes. Completely undermining the whole point of the page and creating drama elsewhere on the wiki. You might look to the legal system for inspiration, certain lawyers, I'm thinking Thompson here, have been forced to have their submissions and cases countersigned by another member of the bar before being entered. Perhaps ban him from creating cases that a designated volunteer hasn't looked over and given permission on his talk page first for a month. That should solve it.
- Your 'all admin pages' ban is ridiculous as it prevents participation in policy debates and sysop and crat elections. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 20:54, 12 April 2010 (BST)

I was wondering if you might share the source or artist of the paintings on your site? They are spectacular and remind me of the Dune novels by Frank Herbert. Thanks, Regards---Belisarius17 14:32, 31 March 2010 (BST)
Having said that, I guess you aren't surprised by that. Thoughts, if I may? -- 13:01, 31 March 2010 (BST)
- They're supposed to remind you of Dune, since that's what they're of. They all came from random places on the internet years ago. If you let me know which image(s) in particular I'll check my image archives and see if I can use the original file names to find out for you. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 14:36, 31 March 2010 (BST)
- Thank you very much, the image titled "He will not be found, yet all men will find him" is the one that stopped me cold. It reminded me of a line by T.E. Lawrence about needing the desert. It has been years since I have read those novels but the imagery stays with you. I think I will read them again. Thanks for having them up on your page and for checking on it. I appreciate it.--Belisarius17 15:13, 31 March 2010 (BST)

- To be fair I was just going to wait another month and then change it over to yearly without asking anyone. With de-escalations also applied when someone gets escalated by a current case, de-escalations is going to see the same use as undeletions, we can always swap over to a quarterly or monthly system if there's a need.
- Leave this month's admin archives to me, I'm going to document every step on that page and have a complete 'How To' guide for doing it since a lot of people don't know how to do it. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 13:06, 31 March 2010 (BST)

Removal of piece
Iscariot. You undid a removal of text by me on your group's talk page. Even though the text was written by me, i have learned that you have control over it. The issue is the following: members of my group have complained to me about the nature of the text, and i have agreed that it would be better if it was removed. I would like to ask you to remove my contribution here. --zyckde 01:56, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
- Not able to do so old bean. Removing your contribution would mean that the contributions of those who responded to you would be nonsensical, that would be considered impersonation on this wiki and is subject to escalation. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 02:09, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
- I agree with that principle. However, in this case it would be possible. The present responses in that section are about something else than my post, and they would not lose their meaning. --zyckde 02:14, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
- Having looked over it again I concede that your logic is flawless, however it remains our policy to retain all edits to our pages until such time as we choose to archive them. Having been through a similar debate with someone less articulate recently, it would by hypocritical of me to alter our stance for this one case. Perhaps you'd care to post a response stating why you feel your early contribution does not accurately reflect your group's position and clarify the errors of the original piece that caused the opposition from your fellows? -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 02:21, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
- As a small note, I'd like to point out that it was actually DDR who undid your edit, not Iscariot. —Aichon— 16:47, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
Iscariot, I just wanted to ask if you have any parcels of wisdon to impart on this matter. I am woefully inexperienced and would welcome a little help. -Devorac 20:10, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
- Yes. Follow the wonderful words of advice I shall now give you:
- Pick a competent arbitrator. Make sure he's someone without a history of antagonism against your cause and that he can demonstrate impartiality.
- Know your policies. Understand what can and can not be done on the wiki, don't allow someone to con you into believing something untrue.
- Win the case, not the big picture. Don't be drawn into minutiae. Focus on the original point of the case and argue that point from as many different angles as you need to defeat your opponent, any other arguments are a waste of time.
- When in doubt, go on the forum and shoot me a PM, I'll write your arguments for you if need be. To be fair I could win this game in two paragraphs, it's an easy one.
- -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 20:15, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
- I think I can handle it fairly well, but I will definitely keep your offer in mind. -Devorac 20:19, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
I sincerely hope you don't yell at me for this, but I'm just saying... becoming bloody from shooting someone isn't karma. In the same manner that becoming bloody from being shot isn't karma. It's anything but religious, that's for sure. I already said, I wasn't trying to punish PKers for shooting people. Most of them don't seem to care. Is Kevan punishing people who get shot for dying so much? I severely doubt that. I understand that you can't change your vote and you probably wouldn't change your vote if you could, but don't make stupid excuses and assumptions so you can fire off your spam cannon. Oh yeah, by the way, something's going on with your sig, I don't know if you meant it to do that or something. Just saying. --Enigmatalk 16:00, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
- You said that it was an attempt to code karma in to the game in as many words on Talk:Suggestions, don't cry because we read what you've written and vote based on that. Also, my reasoning is valid, if you don't think so go contact a sysop and ask for the vote to be struck, I'll laugh greatly as you're told to fuck off. Understand I could have just written "Spam - Overpowered" and it would have been a valid vote, don't whine because I actually told you what I think of your idiot idea. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 17:03, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
- In the developing suggestions, sure I may have joked that the guy who shot is a bastard, but in the final one there were no such words. I treated the bloodstains in a positive way, so your reasoning doesn't mean shit-all. I'm pretty sure you're supposed to vote on the suggestion, not the talk page. And I'm not going to the sysop to strike the vote, all it'll do is put it in Undecided instead of Rejected even if it does work, I'm just trying to tell you that you were a bigot. After all, on the discussion I also explained that I wasn't bringing in karma. --Enigmatalk 01:23, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Theoretically, a bot could be set up by Rooster, or someone with similar coding skill, but I don't really mind making the edits myself.

- Yes, but only because I just got an update on it on my talk page....
- I'm just thinking we start the groundwork now, then if you ever get bored/leave the wiki it's easier to instantly trigger the bot. In fact it'd be better to start it while you're still covering the task, then the errors made by the bot can be caught early. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 14:03, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
- That makes sense. I don't know if it would be possible, but I'm no expert on bots. It would also have to deal with the issue of archives filling up, which is only just beginning to happen, as per Dulston. I dunno. I'll bring it up with Rooster.--Yonnua Koponen Talk !

If you'd like to know what's working where and how ask, don't just guess. If you'd like a comparison of features on the server level down between the three ask, don't just guess. I'm sure I could provide some information you obviously don't know about this stuff and would be glad to do so if you actually care about trying to present information correctly. It would also be nice if you put as much effort into using NPOV facts and comparisons for the readers sake as you seem to in trying to undo my edits. --Karekmaps?! 12:57, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
- Where do I start? If you're whining about me putting back (correctly) that original images could not be viewed I'd remind you that it was hours after I put that warning back up that this wiki actually found out where to find their images, and nearly two whole months after the problem actually happened. That's almost Microsoft levels of customer service there.
- If you're talking about the paragraph on Swiers' system, you'll find all of that is accurate and sourced from the actual site itself.
- If you're talking about the list at the top weighing the pros and cons of these systems, you'll do well to remember that these were written in collaboration with RG mods and ZHU members.
- If you're just here to whine about losing your monopoly on a front page advert you can just fuck right off back into whatever hole you were in for the last two months while people were asking about the problems you've only just decided to fix.

I'm not sure what's up, but when I deleted File:A Cylon Forever by NovaStarX.gif, I noticed as it moved it would distort itself (hard to explain) but the image seems somewhat corrupted as a .gif. I recently noticed the same with your current sig image on DS. Have you noticed this yet/at all? I don't know what to say further, I don't have any solutions or further help but I'm just trying to give you a heads up incase you want to try and investigate it and reupload it in the future. -- 11:37, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
- I haven't seen any difference between the two based on just looking at them. It might have been due to the amount of times it appeared on Talk:Suggestions causing slowdowns and then saving wrong in your cache. Or it might be my cache using the image on my HD. If it develops into an actual problem I'll try again, I have both versions saved. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 14:04, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

- You might want to look into getting glasses or perhaps getting a stronger prescription if you wear glasses. Or maybe empty your cache. After your post I changed my signature to conform to the rules, whereas yours doesn't conform to them. My signature is now 14 pixals high. Your signature is 54.24 kbs. The rule states no image size higher then 50 kbs. 54.24 kbs is 4.24 kbs over the limit. I suggest that you change your signature, or take the escalation.

- I have no image greater than 50kb, the criteria specifically refers to single image and has no limitations on the use of multiple images or a total sig image size. Nice try but fail.

Also, I liked that banner better when it was a Tatooine banner. It sucks now that it's a Dune banner. Dune fucking sucked, worst Space Opera ever. Why would I want to read the novel to one of the worst Space Opera movies I've ever seen? - Goribus 09:40, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- Some of us are intelligent enough to actually read our Sci-Fi rather than wait for the moving picture versions. David Lynch's Dune was hideous, but bears no resemblance to the actual novel. Still, Lynch is a better director than Lucas (who stole every good idea he ever had off Kurosawa) or Bay (who likes inserting casual racism in your Go-Bots franchise). -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 02:52, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
- I don't need to read it to know I wouldn't like it. I haven't read Twilight and I'm certain I wouldn't like that either. Also your point about the movie having no resemblance to the novel is refuted by it's author: Though Herbert said the book's depth and symbolism seemed to intimidate many filmmakers, he was pleased with the film, saying that "They've got it. It begins as Dune does. And I hear my dialogue all the way through. There are some interpretations and liberties, but you're gonna come out knowing you've seen Dune." Herbert on Lynch's Dune movie
- As for your other point that Lynch is a better director then Lucas and Bay, that goes without saying. I happen to be a fan of Lynch's work excluding Dune. However he does tend to attract the snooty elitist types like yourself that take cinema far too seriously. You seem to take a lot of things way too seriously. I'm willing to bet that you've never enjoyed any kind of fiction in any kind of media unless you see it as "art", or more likely a bunch of other people see it as "art". While Lynch is a better director than Lucas, the majority of his movies aren't as entertaining as Lucas' movies.
- Oh and before I forget Bay's first movie was a mindless popcorn action movie, and for what it was it was passable entertainment. The sequel was a massive clusterfuck of plot holes, bad writing, bad acting, "what the fuck's going on", etc. It was written during a writers strike by amateurs and it really shows. Even with the standards for popcorn action movies it's mindless and just plain awful. In fact, it's about as bad as the Dune movie. I do find it precious that I'm getting a lecture on science fiction and entertainment from a Battlestar Galactica fanboy though. Both series were fucking atrocious. - Goribus 07:23, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
- You know I actually came here to quote the old "Your signature is illegal. You have one week to conform to the Signature Policy before you are taken to A/VB." It seems I was beaten to the punch. Normally I don't give a flying whoopity-do about other people's signatures, but since you're so keen on pounding other people over the head with the rulebook I'm going to jump on the bandwagon.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 12:06, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- Hate to have to say this, but Iscariot's signature image is 13 pixels high. :P --Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 14:19, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- I have to agree with Iscariot here guys, it clearly indicates that the images cannot be more then 50kb, it doesn't specify a particular number of images that you can have there. "Signatures which contain images larger then 50kb." -- 14:54, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- Izzie, you never said what was wrong with people's signature. Even worse, you didn't even link to the signature policy. Not vandalism for everyone based on improper informing of breaking said rules. If you're going to warn people you need to be able to answer their questions of why. None of these signatures are bad-faith, therefore simple mistakes. If you can't be bothered to help people with fixing their signatures then don't bother warning them. Newb mistakes will never get an escalation the first time.--Thadeous Oakley 15:58, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- Don't I remember you getting a soft warning for backseat sysoping before? Also, there are no 'rules' as you seem to imply. People are given a week to change illegal sigs after they are informed that they are illegal. There is no other duty I have to perform. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 02:52, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
Nothing in my sig is illegal. Get your lies off my talk page in the future. Also, your blinking 2001 light is over 50kb (54.24kb to be precise). Way to go champ. 16:15, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- Mis is right. If you right-click on the image of Iz's sig and then to properties you'll see that it is indeed 54.24kb. Ha, you got one week Iscariot. Talking about major fail.--Thadeous Oakley 16:27, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- This is probably what Goribus meant, on second thought. --Thadeous Oakley 16:36, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- If you go to the image page on the wiki, it's 36KB. The other KB are from the text.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 16:47, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- "to know the face of god is to know madness"? That's part of the image, Yonnua. Sure the image on it's own is 36 kb, but if you decide to add text then it obviously grows in data. --Thadeous Oakley 17:59, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- Yeah, but the policy doesn't include the text. it's referring to the uploaded image on the wiki. :( I think. --Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:09, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- It doesn't specify either way. Therefore I'd take it at face value - the image in the sig is over 50kb and is therefore illegal. 18:13, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- Yeah, I've just checked through about 20 relevant policy discussions, none of which say anything, so it would go to the sysops to rule how they thought. As Iscariot said though, he's already been through a couple of trials for the sig, so it won't be a definite either way. Allow me to check for VB precedent.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:19, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

- No surprise considering how few (if any besides Iz) signature case were on A/VB. --Thadeous Oakley 18:43, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
- Few points of correction:
- His sig is from Battlestar Galactica, not 2001. It's a Cylon's eye, not HAL.
- The text you get when you mouseover is not part of the image. It's wiki code.
- You'd need several thousand characters if you wanted to have enough text to go from 36KB to 54.2KB. There's not even .1KB of text there.
- The uploaded image is 36KB in size.
- When images are resized to be smaller using wiki code, the wiki creates a new version of the file at that size.
- Because his image has been resized (non-optimally) for his signature by the wiki software, it ended up getting bigger. VERY odd.
- I'd agree with the others in saying that his sig is technically a violation because of the resizing issue.
- Stop arguing on the Internet. This is just pointless drama.

Hi. Forgive my slowness but I've noticed when you tallied up the votes on my "So you've decided to be a zombie" guide, you initially marked it as a featured guide then changed your mind. Don't get me wrong, I'm not having a pop at you, I'm just wondering why this is as I thought a guide needed 75% approval to be featured (which mine got). Cheers, Chief Seagull talk 15:39, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

A relevent and constructive comment made over three weeks ago, discussing a relevant point, after I'd already joined said discussion earlier, and you only see fit to even bring it up, let alone moan about it, now? I actually don't know if you're being serious or not. 14:34, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
- I'm quite sure you meant to type 'relevant'. Three weeks ago? Well fucking excuse me for having broken internets and addressing the matter my first day back on the wiki. Simple question, did the page you edit begin with User: or User talk:? One is for the sole editing of the user in question and anyone given permission, the other is for discussion, which did you edit? Did you intentionally ignore the very obvious notice at the top of the page? Or was it an inability to read? You have the entirety of your own user space to place things you deem 'relevant' and 'constructive', in my user space however the uninvited prattlings of unwanted users are neither relevant or constructive. I have now warned you about editing invitation only projects that placed in my user space and pointed you to the very obvious warning notice that was at the top of the page when you edited it. If repeat your edits after being told that they are unwanted, I will be forced to conclude that your edits are made in bad faith to be disruptive and I will make the appropriate A/VB report. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 23:59, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
- I really don't care. Project's underway with its own public page, further discussion in your pissant little playpen is needless at this point. Then again, if this was anything other than a dick measuring contest, you might have actually contributed to said project with the energy you spent sulking at me. 00:06, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
- If it's my 'pissant little playpen', why are you so eager to jump in an add your unwanted opinions? I see you have failed to answer the very simple question as to what type of page it was that you edited, whether it was a talk page, or a user page, why am I not surprised by the omission of such a simple answer? Again you seem to be confusing words in the English language, I was informing you that your edits are unwanted, not sulking. How hard would it have been to say "I'm sorry, I won't vandalise your pages in the future" and resolve the matter that way?
- I'd have loved to have participated in the project, but connection difficulties meant I was away for the start and that the time where Aich and I would have made an easy and streamlined system for doing all of it, as well as a standardisation of the relevant (notice the 'a'?) host pages was therefore denied to me, maybe next time. It didn't much help when the agreed start date (agreed due to the ease of logistic concerns) was brought forward for some unknown reason. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 03:03, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Great Suburb Group Massacre 2010
I noticed the issue you mentioned re: "Groups in one suburb are organizations in another (e.g. The Spanish Inquisition in Vinetown)". Aichon made TSI an 'organisation' on the Vinetown list as we have a subsidiary there (St John's Classic Rock, SJCR), but SJCR is not active in Pegton so it was an anomaly. I've amended the listings so that TSI is listed correctly as a group in both suburbs, and have removed SJCR for the time being as it's currently inactive anyway (one DJ has idled out, and the radio studio needs power). Hope that helps.--Mallrat TSI TKS CTD 10:03, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
- I was actually the one that mentioned the "issue" (those seven points were comments I made). From what I saw, I didn't really make it into an organization, since I was acting on this previous edit of yours. I just corrected the formatting, as my note said. Regardless though, I'm glad that it's no longer an "issue" at all. One less thing to worry about. :D —Aichon— 10:22, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Should I be pronouncing it "IsCAREiyat, IsCareiyot, IsCARIYAT?" There are many more. These questions keep me up at night. Now, if you're unsatisfied with "Izzy" to replace your profoundly mysterious and exotic username that is probably a reference to something I will never bother to google, I can help you; I've compiled a list. Possible options: Isis, "IS CAR?", (Is it a car?), Isabelle (being much classier than Izzy), Isssssssss (It's fun to be a snake, trust me), or even Caroline, because you strike me as a good caroline. Now, since you obviously are unhappy with your common nickname, and are likely going to be unhappy with my proposals, and since I don't feel like googling your name or trying to sound it out in my head, I will compromise by calling you WANDA. Who knows, maybe WANDA will finally bait Zombie Lord enough so that his self esteem finally gives out, or maybe WANDA will move on to bigger and better things to occupy (pronoun's) time.

- All other matters set aside for the moment, you'd be hard-pressed to call that an autobiography, since Judas was, well, kinda dead about 100-150+ years before it was written.

- I just checked the Historical group page, and it confirms that they go on to the listing after passing the community vote.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 16:50, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
- Historical does not equal historic. For years historic groups have been listed on suburb pages without trouble or needing historical status. You think someone requesting promotion might take the time to understand the history of the community and its precedents. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 17:03, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

- I'm completely indifferent to the group. The facts of the matter are that they shouldn't be able to enter a category without vote, especially since they weren't even present in the suburb when they were active.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 17:12, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
- I have some serious doubts about your story, Iscariot. To my knowledge, you need to be pass historical vote first. Second opinion plz. --Thadeous Oakley 17:39, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
- If this is what I think this might be about, listing groups as historic on the suburb pages is an entirely different process to getting voted as a "historical group". Suburb listings reflect the groups who were locally historic in small ways, but who didn't make a big impact on the game as a whole. The category "historical groups", and the subsequent voting process, are for those who made a game-wide impact. For example, DHPD, if their time comes, might not make the vote as they're very regional and limited in scope, but will assuredly be listed under their home suburb for the work they do there. So now you know, half the battle, blah-dee-blah. Also, ninja-ed by Rooster, who appears to be disproving my point. Am I wrong? I could be wrong. 17:49, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
- TA-DAH!!! Mis has the correct! Groups that have been important to suburbs, but would not pass historical voting due to their lack on impact on the game in general have always been allowed to be entered in that section to commemorate their history in the area. Now if some people want to change that, I'm happy with that.... BB2 went through fifty-three suburbs, they best get started.... -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 18:01, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
- The sidebar is intended for groups who have passed voting, mismatches in the terms can be considered an error in my part in the template's creation (though personally, I consider historic to mean of importance in history, and historical to mean just any history, although I think dictionaries tend to agree they're interchangable) but the intention if definitely for groups who've passed voting. Change the wording to historical if it irks you. -- RoosterDragon 17:46, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm not going to allow them to be done over due to a majority dislike of them and their own naivety about the rules.

Read your short treatise on the subject and I agree that some of these nominations are creating absolutely ridiculous amounts of drama. I think that getting rid of the Historical Group category is a good idea, but by the same token there should be some method of determining whether or not a groups page(s) should be on the wiki forever. Otherwise, we could end up with a number of group pages for groups that only lasted a month or two and disbanded; nobody will ever use them again or likely even visit them, so why keep them?
What about changing the policy for nominations instead? Currently it stands at only two months after a group disbands (or after an event). Why not re-write the policy to account for a longer period of time, say six months or even a year? I would argue that if after that longer period of time people still even remember the event or group in question, it might be worth a nomination. Just my thoughts. --Maverick Talk - OBR 404 07:47, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
- I'm only responding to one of these once. If I wanted your opinion (read: you had half a clue about the policies of this wiki) you'd have been invited to participate. It doesn't mean you should come to my talk page and fill it up with crap about every thought that passed through your head. We already keep group pages permanently on this wiki, even if they were only around a couple of months (see: ZEMA). You can't alter a policy towards nominations, because there isn't one currently. BB2 had 90-ish members when they got the nod the day we disbanded it, The Dead had well over a hundred and are still active. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 10:11, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
- This policy actually has nothing to do with Historical groups. It's all about gaming the system to prevent any hard-working janitors from beign able to clean up orphaned group pages.

Historical voting is the perfect example of why not everything on this wiki is a vote. It's not like you can say, "This is almost historic, try again in 2 months." I've been on the receiving end of a frankly ridiculous historical vote, and frankly despair at l33t newbs going "WHO?". Frankly it would be a lot easier if we just got a few people who have played the game since the beginning to decide.
Nowadays there are only a handful of groups who can genuinely claim they "changed the game". Survivors are more fractured then ever, and the large zombie groups are the easy route for new zombies. Any groups formed this year people think are even close? Clubbed to death? Dead bunnies? Any survivor group? Meh.
As I'm here, I've been reading the combat revive page. Think it needs a bit of a rewrite. Whats your opinion Iscariot? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 15:59, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
- Question is, who would you put on this committee? I haven't been here since 2005, neither have you. Hagnat? He called Sponge a cheat and unclassy for death culting and reporting survivor numbers at the beginning of MT09, when Sponge was doing what I (the guy that wrote the fucking rules for the event) asked him to. The newbies think everything they do is historical, the throwbacks think new playstyles like death culting are wrong and won't even consider them, who do we pick? And as this is the wiki there's the notion of limitation of authority, could a sysop override the committee for a popular choice under the 'ignore shit when it suits them' clause? Could they refuse to add the category (or remove it) on pages they disagree with?
- Feel free to jump onto PD3 and add your opinions Ross.
- Combat revive does need an overhaul, badly. So do a lot of older 'glossary' style pages. I was thinking of doing the death cultist one a while back, but then remembered that all I do is 'troll this place' and add 'malicious clauses' where ever I go.... -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 01:48, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
- I've just got to work, but I'll chime in later today. A lot of the glossary pages need a complete rewrite. Ive been toying around with a major revamp of the zombie skills pages as well.

Thanks for your input; I have seen the Columbine Kids page. I feel it is an unfortunate choice but to be fair, humor is often dark and full of edges. Creating that page is not a choice I would have made, but people have a right to express themselves as they see fit. That is also why I did not edit the Burn Towers site after another user pointed out that it was within my rights to do so if I saw fit(I am a humble newbie and misunderstood the rules...apparently English is my first AND second language). If I find something as vulgar, crass, boorish or even repugnant, that is my opinion and I think it is OK to tell someone that is how I feel about it. Would'nt you do the same for any friend who made a joke that was offending people? Of course, real sarcasm is best left to professionals. They usually are saying shocking things because they want things to get better-much like that raging Gryphon gent on your page. What do you think?

Simple question, how is it an unreasonable request to undo his edits until the correct version is discovered? I am the only one who could be harmed by doing that and I'm the one requesting it.

- Hmm. Well, if it IS only harming you by reverting the edit, which I can see it definately is, then there shouldn't really be a problem. I guess the way he's thinking is that there's no point putting it back how it was before, because both are wrong, and there isn't really any formal investigation going in to it. I assume he decided to go with the more leniant option of the two then, as opposed to giving you something which was both wrong and bad. It's a tricky situation. I'll talk to him, and see if he'd be willing to revert the edit.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 00:27, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
- His isn't the more lenient version in any way, it serves to obsfucate the issue and is blatantly hypocritical, and he knows it. Good luck trying to talk to him, prepare to be stonewalled. Or he'll fall into the argument of "Prove beyond all doubt what the correct version is", odd how he didn't have to do the same before he made his edits isn't it? It won't get changed, ever, he'd have to admit he'd wrong and his little world would fall apart if he did. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 00:34, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Frankly, Iscariot, threatening to take me to A/VB, or somehow endanger my efforts to become a sysop doesn't worry me. If sorting out this wiki the way it should be prevents me from being a sysop, then I guess I wouldn't care to be one. However, the fact that what I did was in the best interests of the group makes it perfectly acceptable. And I wasn't the oen who removed the comment, I just stopped you from putting it back.

Why did you remove Karek as well as Pestolence from the arbitrator list? Pestolence hasn't made an edit since June so that's justified but Karek's last edit was on the 19th. Did he ask for it or something? Cyberbob Talk 08:06, 27 September 2009 (BST)

- Click this link. Now use this wonderful power I expect you to have called reading, spot Karek and then apologise. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 09:44, 27 September 2009 (BST)
- I've decided that you don't deserve an apology. If apologies mean so much to you perhaps next time you could be a bit more gracious in your responses. Cyberbob Talk 09:49, 27 September 2009 (BST)
- Just so everyone reading this is aware, I was performing routine maintenance as proscribed by the wiki job list and completed it as stated in the guidelines. Cyberbob came here and accused me of removing a user incorrectly when anyone who clicked the page in question could see that his accusation was false. Despite being categorically proven wrong no apology was offered and instead a blatant personal attack was launched even though Cyberbob was at fault throughout. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 09:59, 27 September 2009 (BST)
I prefered it when this page was a haven against sysops...what happened to that rule? --xoxo 06:40, 8 October 2009 (BST)
- Unlike certain sysops I am making an effort to be reasonable on this wiki. One only has to look at Cyberbob's conduct here and Boxy's doctoring of my A/VD data to see that this is apparent. You'll notice that if you or I added sections of nonsense or sections deliberately large as to obscrure the responses of others on a policy page, we'd be taken to A/VB and escalated. I find it strange that the same doesn't seem to apply to sysops and their pets. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 06:56, 8 October 2009 (BST)
You have said repeatedly recently that you'd like to see new sysops promoted to cover the slack. Recently, I've considered running, and I consulted the current sysops prior to your return about it. They said that I needed to become more present in drama-nests such as a/vb and a/m, which I have tried to do since, although have not yet completely achieved. In your opinion, if I were to continue to work on these goals, would you support me in a sysop bid?--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 19:08, 25 September 2009 (BST)
- It is not entirely to do with presence in these arenas, nor the quantity of contributions but the quality of those contributions. Awareness of precedent and abandonment of ego as regards these arenas. Conndraka and Cyberbob are bad sysops by this criteria, both exercise the power of the sysop as if it's some elite and divine right, and both cause more drama and discord in the community as a result. However, not causing drama by non-participation also makes you a bad sysop, see The Rooster in the recent Nubis drama, it would have been in the community's best interest to have full participation from the admin team, yet apparently it's beneath The Rooster even though he was active elsewhere (targeting me whilst still doing fuck all about a major group doing the same), such traits also make a bad sysop.
- The important thing to consider is why you want to be a sysop and what you will do when promoted, these are just as important as procedural and policy knowledge. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 04:53, 26 September 2009 (BST)
- I want to be a sysop so that I can help out on the admin pages, instead of just turning up and reading them, or occassionally posting a semi-relevant comment on the talk. Being a sysop, I'd be able to actually do something about things. I'm certainly aware that i've been trollish in the past, and I feel I've made steps towards fixing this more recently.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 09:50, 26 September 2009 (BST)
- Theoretical ruling time. Say you're a sysop, provide a ruling and explanation for it for the following cases; 1 and 2 will do for starters. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 10:40, 26 September 2009 (BST)
- On the SA case, I'd say borderline Misconduct. I didn't read the whole thing, but from the beginning section, he opened the door to misconduct by using his sysop status as a badge. Furthermore, that precedent against Hagnat that Cheese linked to is fairly clear. I'll read the other one briefly, then I'll read over them again to check if I stand by my decisions.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 10:46, 26 September 2009 (BST)
- I'd also say misconduct on the Boxy case. He used his powers to remove groups which, at the time they were added, were deemed historical. They should be evaluated by the process that stood at the time, not the present one. That would be like holding re-evaluations for sysops who had held the position but were no longer sysops anymore, like Odd Starter. It would be ridiculous.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 10:52, 26 September 2009 (BST)
- And based on this I won't be vouching for you. Conndraka used to pull the same behaviour, rule on something and then maybe, possibly read and understand the circumstances later. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 10:54, 26 September 2009 (BST)
- If this were an actual case, I would have read it. Since it's just you finding my general opinion, I gave a general opinion. As I'm havign two conversations at once, i thought it would be best to give a swift response, and a more evaluated one later. In the case of an actual a/m case, I'd have several days to make a ruling, not five minutes.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 10:59, 26 September 2009 (BST)
I'm a bit too close to this to really see the glaring logical areas, want to lead me through them, much like a confused and drunken child? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:05, 20 September 2009 (BST)
- Logical errors wise, I see two major ones:
- "More importantly no zombie or hostile groups are listed. " followed by "Get a rivalry going"
- The notion that the wiki is accurate when it comes to group placement and effectiveness. I guarantee that the DEM are still listed in at least 10 suburbs they don't have anyone in.
- The big problem though is it's lack of style, there's nothing there, no character. Grim's guide and my rantings work because of their unadulterated loathing for people who do differently, and people have a platform then to engage it from, this guide has no soul, with no soul there's nothing to make a connection to a newbie searching this vast resource for help. It becomes forgettable. I can see what you're saying because I've been playing for years, your facts are sound, I know this, you know this, but without any explanation as to why it becomes just as valid as Brainguard's Fort strategy to newbies. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 19:59, 20 September 2009 (BST)
- Frankly thats two good points. The DEM aren't as bad as they were, and when I challenged the MFD, (By far the worst offender) I did manage to take them off 20 or so suburbs. I'll change both those points.
- As for style, you're right. Lookng back it shows that I wrote it in 3 big chunks and It doesn't flow. I'm just wondering If its possible to inject character in a way other than anger?
- As I'm here which 80's programme are you referencing with your sig? The one with the remake or the one with the hoff? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 20:52, 20 September 2009 (BST)
- Style's a funny thing. NMH worked as it was written in one sitting as an outpouring at the banality of that SOS page, HTABRG (sig link) was written over several months and is more vanilla, think about how you want your guide to approach the user and from that dictate the tone and language of the piece.
- I style most of my stuff after The Prophet Hicks or 2, generally because that's how I write and argue in general, it doesn't mean aggression is the only method of structuring a guide. Find another work, whether guide, novel or even a review that you want your guide to be like and then from there see how it could be done in a vanilla manner, an aggressive manner etc. From there you should be able to isolate what you like about it and apply it.
- I still think you need to increasing its size through explanations to qualify your remarks, I think it will end up three times bigger if done right.
- As for the TV show, I like the millennial remake:
- I like my toasters with blonde hair and legs that go all the way up....

Your signature must have at leased one character linking to your userpage. Users have been made to change their signatures before if the signature is nothing but redirect-images. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 04:38, 15 September 2009 (BST)
- So, are you going to change your signature to comply with the sig policy any time soon? The handle portion of your signature must link to your user page or one its subpages, image can link elsewhere. It's not obvious to newbies that the image is what they need to click on to find your userpage via a redirect. Signatures are there to make it easy for people to know who made a post, and to find their userpage to contact them -- boxy talk • teh rulz 03:04 27 September 2009 (BST)
- Please do not add links to my user talk page. As you may not be aware, my signature is legal and was accordingly deemed so by the user who questioned it above. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 06:09, 27 September 2009 (BST)
- The link is to avoid your stupid set up here, where I have to edit the whole page, and find where I need to edit in a wall of text instead of being able to edit only the section I want to reply to. Any valid reason why you are making it difficult for people to use this page for it's intended purpose?
Your signature isn't legal, you've been asked nicely to fix it, and haven't. The handle portion of a signature is a text link to your user page (or a sub-page thereof). Please modify it now -- boxy talk • teh rulz 06:32 27 September 2009 (BST)
- I dislike such links and have asked you nicely not to use them already. Do not place another one on my page. Please revisit your supposed timeline of events, the legality of my signature was questioned by a now current 'crat, the signature was altered and then deemed legal. If you are of the mistaken belief that my current signature is illegal I invite you to point directly as to which portion is illegal and why by quoting the appropriate section of the Signature Policy and then allow me the week am I permitted to select and code a new signature as allowed by policy.
- Although I am wondering, as are others no doubt, as to why my signature gets so much coverage when a member of the sysop team has had an illegal signature for months and not one of you have thought to bring that up. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 06:39, 27 September 2009 (BST)
- Adding a single full stop is not a suitable fix for this problem, as you well know, the handle portion of your sig needs to be obvious, not hidden away -- boxy talk • teh rulz 09:40 27 September 2009 (BST)
- I'm waiting for the policy quote and the appropriate week, please supply the appropriate quote, as your current argument is provably incorrect due to basic precedent. Either my sig is legal, or other sigs by multiple users including sysops have been conveniently overlooked by you in the past. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 09:44, 27 September 2009 (BST)
- You've had your week. Do it, and do it now. If you have issues with other people's sigs, bring them up, don't just expect me to know what you're talking about -- boxy talk • teh rulz 09:50 27 September 2009 (BST)
- I have not had a week at all, yet again I remind you that the last time the legality of my sig was brought into question and that notice was created, it was resolved within the hour and ruled as legitimate by the sysop in question. You are attempting to deny me the basic rights as established by policy and I find this to be clearly in bad faith, especially given your deceitful alterations to my vandal data history. -- . . <== DDR Approved Editor 09:59, 27 September 2009 (BST)

I should've consulted them, yes, but I was, and still am, sure that the Philosophe Knights are a PKer group, and therefore shouldn't be in the survivor section of a group template for a suburb.

Your characted description left me puzzled about WTF you were talking about. Rubens barrichelo can kiss my ass, he is the worst racer that brazil ever sent to formula one. Last year i did rotted for Massa a lot, but rubens didnt smashed Hamilton's car, and Vettel couldnt hold the brit in that final lap, so he lost. This year was awesome to see the races, but as far as brazilians were running on it, there wasnt hope for them... specially if you take into account barrichelo's murder attempt on Massa in that race that prevented him from racing several races.
