RE: Thanks for fixing that![edit]

I just replaced the quote template with a similar one, {{quote2}}. This allows pipe linking (as in, linking to a page while displaying something different) and additional descriptions. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:15, September 26, 2019 (EDT)


What was that vandalism for? --Yoshi ski.png FanOfYoshi DrFreezegood SMW2.png 12:22, October 13, 2019 (EDT)

What vandalism? Did I do something? If I did, I guess roll it back, but I dont know what you're talking about. Mad Hunter (talk) 16:32, October 13, 2019 (EDT)

Ohh… I Have no idea about that. I didn't do that, I swear! Why would I? Mad Hunter (talk) 16:36, October 13, 2019 (EDT)

As should be clear by now, Hunter simply made a mistake - though they did also overreact with their proposal right after, the fact remains that bad faith shouldn't be presumed where "incompetence" (or, more specifically, user error) is a much likelier explanation. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters.

My proposal Idea wasn't to block proposals from being made, but to block archives from being edited. I'm not so sure how that would work out though. Mad Hunter (talk) 09:05, October 23, 2019 (EDT)

Except in said overreaction, you missed that it wasn't an archive page you edited (which we have several of, already maintained by regular uses and admins alike), but an older revision of the current page. Locking either page would have been pointlessly obstructive, especially when the simpler solution is to pay a bit more mind to what you're editing. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters.

Also, the main proposal archives are already full-protected (except the current one, archive 54). I do agree that, since protecting only old revisions is impossible, fully protecting the proposal page would inevitably end up completely destroying the point of a proposal (why even have a proposal on the main proposals page when only admins can vote anyway?).

Huh. How was I even able to edit that anyway if the archives were protected? Mad Hunter (talk) 10:10, October 23, 2019 (EDT)

Old revisions are not proposal archives. Archives are stuff like this. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 10:14, October 23, 2019 (EDT)
I already said this, and I've already given the solution - be more attentive when going through older revisions of a page. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 10:20, October 23, 2019 (EDT)

Ok. Mad Hunter (talk) 10:21, October 23, 2019 (EDT)

How articles are written[edit]

I'll try not to be too harsh here, but I think I really need to get through to you on this. Firstly, we don't use the word "you" when talking about the player, we instead say "the player" or the playable character depending on what's best for the situation. This wiki is supposed to be written like an encyclopedia rather than a strategy guide. Secondly, remember to use italics when typing game titles. Look at editing pages to see how it's done. Lastly, when pluralising certain things, you can do it like this: "Car]]s" which is how they're normally done and saves time. Other than that, it's great that you're trying to be helpful on here, we just need you to comply with these things too. Mario Sakuraba (talk) 07:40, October 28, 2019 (EDT)

I would highly suggest going over MarioWiki:Manual of Style. Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC 08:21, October 28, 2019 (EDT)

Wow, It's nice to have so much attention, even if it was for something I did wrong. Anyway, thanks for reminding me of that, I'm constantly forgetting it. It was way worse when I edited stuff on the terraria wiki and wrote stuff like: "I Prefer to use the Minishark, but some people use the Musket" You could say I wasn't the best writer on there.
