Announcement: I'm no longer active. My talk page is still your best bet to get in touch, but no promises. Aichon 04:39, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Please be aware of the following guidelines before posting here.

  • New conversations should be started at the bottom using a level two header (e.g. ==Header==). Or with the +
  • I like to keep conversations wherever they start, but if a conversation ends up here, I will keep it here.
  • I will format comments for stylistic reasons, delete comments for whatever reason, and generally do anything else within reason.

Thanks. Aichon

"I'm Tandy and I live with my husband and our 3 children termites in house jacksonville "

Sounds like one hell of story. Stay strong, Tandy. A ZOMBIE ANT 06:59, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

How can she stay strong when she needs to feed her children? That house is going to come down on her head. Aichon 13:14, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

nothing personal bub

just don't have respect for someone who wont respect another person's talk page. if there's a way to delete it permanently or lock it (like The Jack's page was) or what have you that would be ideal.. but I can't find it so.. yeah. I just happen to find the whole idea of the wiki message system to be incredibly pretentious.. as though every post on my talk page contains something I should find important or indeed, even want to read. I dont need some shitty wiki site telling me what I should value, hell I dont even like wikis to begin with (exercises in arrogant folk's self-important bullshit, all of them).. and for that matter I don't need you telling me what's in my best interest. so yeah, I guess it is a little personal. try not to be so pompous, or imperious like that preteen retard radicalwhig (not calling names, just making observations) Auralius 14:36, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

We don't lock user talk pages except in response to specific, ongoing acts of vandalism, and even then, only temporarily, since locking talk pages is—as I mentioned in one of our previous conversations on my talk page—contrary to the operation of a wiki. We actually never locked The Jack's talk page, just the group page.
Regarding the idea you posted on A/VB that there should be a vandalism case against me—presumably for editing your talk page—we have a lengthy case history of ruling that the simple act of editing a talk page is not vandalism; it's using the wiki as intended. The one exception is if you were to take me to Arbitration. If you did so, we'd pick a neutral arbitrator, we'd make our cases, and we'd receive a ruling. Assuming you made your case well enough to receive a ruling in your favor you might receive something akin to a restraining order against me, at which point any subsequent edits I made to your page could be viewed as an act of vandalism.
That said, Arbitration rulings can't overrule wiki policy, such as the policies governing official notices or my role as a sysop. As such, while an Arbitration ruling could keep me from randomly spamming your talk page with personal insults, it would't keep me from serving you with official notices...which—with the possible exception of the courtesy notice I gave you last week that there was a vandalism case against you—is literally all I've posted ever since I told you last December that I'd avoid editing your talk page unless necessary. You're not an enjoyable person to interact with, so I take no pleasure in posting to your talk page as it is. But hey, if you think that an Arbitration ruling is worth the hassle of going through the bureaucratic red tape on the off-chance that you can get a ruling that will keep me from doing something I'm not doing, that's your call.

It's okay Chonny, I think aurrie is still cranky that his boyfriend's alts got shot out of the game. Again. --RWSig1.png RWSig2.pngFoD PK Praise Rando!15:11, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

I Heard You Guys Like Rules

After being quite annoyed I figured might as well lash out at someone, so here goes: This user clearly has blinking text in their signature. Which according to this policy is against the rules. We can't have any epilecptics sitting and crashing in front of their pc's so I suggest someone tells Gardenator to make a plain/simple signature to prevent anyone getting triggered. I didn't know where to put this, so I came here with it - as you can see you are about to give me some sort of trouble too, but for that im well prepared (as was I for the horde of people coming to fuck me over :) ) Cheers! Sister Mary (talk) 00:58, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

Yeah...that rainbow of text known as the Goonsig has been thoroughly tested against the signature policy, with dozens of cases related to it dating back to 2011. I might be able to be convinced that it’s against policy, but it’d be for reasons other than what you’re citing since that text isn’t blinking. In the context of the Web, “blinking” refers specifically to text that appears and disappears (i.e. what the old HTML Blink tag used to do), and that sig isn’t an example of it.
If you’d like to pursue it further though, that policy page lays out the (annoyingly cumbersome) process for doing so. Aichon 02:00, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
Well im not here to give YOU a hard time over what IM going "through" - but that being sad I have no problem in shooting with what ammo I have available.
Im not going to engage this further and I will add a deletion template for my profile, make a new one and edit like that since it seems like the way im going to contribute here :) Sister Mary (talk) 02:16, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

FA help

Hey, I'm wondering if you could take a quick look at my cycling of Monroeville in UDWiki:Featured Articles as successful.

Essentially, I have no idea how these things are cycled on the main page over time, so I don't know if there's any more I need to do. Thanks. A ZOMBIE ANT 12:11, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

I added it to Template:SimpleFACycle. Looks like you got everything else. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 12:24, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Bob. A ZOMBIE ANT 12:28, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

It's okay Chonny

I, too, would have rolled back my A/RE comment about bob 4 dictator 4 lyfe. You clearly would make the superior wikitator. especially if it would make you stay ;_; --RWSig1.png RWSig2.pngFoD PK Praise Rando!02:41, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Not my first time doing it, and it may not be the last, but it always seems to involve Bob in some way. Aichon 04:23, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Just FYI: Wrecked Bawls isn't a wiki alt of Audio's. stelar Talk|MCM|EBD|Scourge 21:47, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

How do you figure? I'd rather not get into the details, but I really don't see how the logs could be clearer on this one. Aichon 22:10, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
I have voice chatted with both Bawls and Audio at the same time before playing a game online. stelar Talk|MCM|EBD|Scourge 22:14, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
so they told you. Wow, what an elaborate attempt at sockpuppetry on Audios JISORs part. --Emot-siren.gif LABIA on the INTERNET Emot-siren.gif Dunell Hills Corpseman The Malton Globetrotters#24 - You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| TMG 22:25, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
Told me what? That they are two different people entirely? Because that is the truth. stelar Talk|MCM|EBD|Scourge 22:28, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
Oh yeah, I'm not saying you are lying. --Emot-siren.gif LABIA on the INTERNET Emot-siren.gif Dunell Hills Corpseman The Malton Globetrotters#24 - You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| TMG 22:31, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
If you're willing to confirm that you voice chatted with both of them prior to the ban, I'd take that as sufficient evidence that they're different people. In chatting with Audio on Discord, he provided an explanation for why they would share so many details in the logs. None of it was provable, but with your word to back it up, I'd be fine with unbanning Wrecked Bawls. I'm heading out the door, so feel free to de-list Bawls and remove his ban. Aichon 22:48, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
Yes, of course it was before the ban. stelar Talk|MCM|EBD|Scourge 22:56, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

Erm, if (gleaning from the vague references to sysop IP data here) they often share an IP address, and there's been no confirmation that the Wrecked Bawls on this wiki is the same person Stelar was conversing with on Discord, and there's any indication that AudioAttack (who has a history of making shitloads of fleshed out but often discarded alt wiki accounts) could have control of, or have originally created, the account, then the account surely shouldn't be unbanned. THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 02:13, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Actually, perhaps scratch that position, I think you're right Stelar, it's best to be safe rather than sorry when it comes to user experience. THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 03:58, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
That’s also why I was curious about the timing of things. Had she chatted with them immediately after the ban, the timing would be a bit too coincidental. Prior, however? Much more believable. That said, some of this confusion was likely avoidable, so I expect that it won’t come up again, but if it does, we’ll cross that bridge then. Aichon 04:08, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Good precedent for how to avoid bans on a sock puppet account. --Emot-siren.gif LABIA on the INTERNET Emot-siren.gif Dunell Hills Corpseman The Malton Globetrotters#24 - You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| TMG 05:26, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

In theory, but it would be immediately suspicious if Bawls started posting during AA's ban. That would trip a lot of red flags. THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 07:04, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
I predict this will be a problem if Bawls start voting along with JISOR. I honestly thought that AmericanMary was one his alts. Or if JISOR ever runs for sysop.--Emot-siren.gif LABIA on the INTERNET Emot-siren.gif Dunell Hills Corpseman The Malton Globetrotters#24 - You rated this wiki '1'!

Less so for sysop. Even if he ran for sysop, vouches/againsts aren't numerically counted, they are counted in a qualitative way that gives less credence to supporters who may be biased. His conflict of interest would definitely be noted. THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 07:59, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

DDR's sysop bid

So... it seems we have a decision on our hands. Your thoughts? stelar Talk|MCM|EBD|Scourge 12:42, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Though I'm disappointed that no one took the opportunity to question his well-documented affection for furries, nor his racially-charged but short-lived radio career focused on the relationship between Albacore tuna and 16th century Appalachian politics, nor even his largely-maligned and globally-condemned "performance art" of seeking charitable donations by livestreaming himself clubbing baby red pandas to death, I still think we have a solid candidate on our hands. He has an established history as a good 'sop, he's retained an ongoing interest in the wiki, and he's routinely acted as a good foil to the rest of the sysop team by providing well-informed, dissenting views on controversial issues. If he's crazy enough to ask for it, I say we let him have it. Aichon 16:06, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Maybe they will come up at the re-evals. Can't load all the questions on him at once, after all! He survived Bob's line of questioning, and I figure anyone who can get through that deserves the promotion :P Shall we make it so? stelar Talk|MCM|EBD|Scourge 08:53, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Sysop archive help.

Thanks for helping me on my half-boiled archive job. I don't think I've been a sysop since the archives changed around so I thought I'd make a mistake... THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 01:04, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

From what I saw, you got everything right. I just figured I caught you in the middle of things and that you hadn’t got to them yet. Didn’t even realize you had missed them. Aichon 01:14, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, from RC it would like I got distracted midway through the process. I think the truth of the matter is I'd forgotten that last leg of the archival tasks. But now I know. Thanks again! THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 04:14, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you so much for everything

I don't think anyone ever bothered to realize how much you've done for this game / wiki. I often drop the links to your scripts and tell them how awesome you are every single time. You've made the game easy going and if I lose the organizer I just go insane. I mean who keeps track without ?? So... thank you for everything and I do hope you'll still be around if I need a shoulder to lean on and of course... ask about something I can't figure out :) --Murderess (talk) 21:29, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

You're very welcome, and thank you very much for the kind words. Compared to the greats of the game, I haven't done much at all. I'm just happy to have contributed in my small ways. As for once I leave, I don't plan to check in regularly any longer, but that won't necessarily stop me from coming by if someone reaches out with a question or request, though I make no promises. Aichon 22:12, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
See, you're the cutest and will be most missed. "little contribution" ? Your scripts EVERYONE uses ! Modest to boot. Your family has the very best and I wish you the very best of all. You so will be checking in ;) --Murderess (talk) 22:18, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

It feels real now.

That userpage changes make it really hit home! THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 03:44, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Eh, you guys still have me through next month. But yeah, I'm starting to wrap things up and make final edits to some things, just to get them in a state where I want them to be. Aichon 14:18, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
