Replacement for Polls Edit
Hey Leea, I feel too busy with my studies and so I'm quitting as poll person. Since you seem to have given me a kajillion suggestions, I thought you might be interested in the position. Tell me what you think.
We would miss Brother Fox but such a lady of imagination would serve us well !
SaintPain→ Here to help." 01:23, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry, I'll send any codes when it's time. No, I'm not joking, but I'm not quitting at exactly next week, I'm waiting until the 8th of November because then I will have been poll person for a whole year! I just thought I'd get another candidate in the running so it's not short notice. So I have what, 4 more editions left? The reason I'm quitting is because I'm starting to get very busy with my studies at 6th Form (last year of High School more or less) and soon I will have to go.
I've picked Jasper for the position now of course, you will always still be able to give suggestions. c:
Sorry about the polls Edit
Is this why you have been away from online the last few days ? ~ I know you took a trip but that is not the same.
- All we can do is try to roll with the changes ~ I have no idea why fox wants to any quit.
- I liked all the poll ideas you suggested ~ He must just have other obligations.
- I am sorry I can't help ~ My last chat ban soured my taste for any politics here. I still love the site & most folks here.
I wish I could be more help but if I got involved it would reflect badly on you.
Unless they changed the rules again ~ I think you can still post your own blog polls & I would vote on them.
- Keep your chin up ~ We all get hard knocks ~ Drive on Mz Kishori!

Poll present Edit
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.
P.S. I'm sorry for playing you over in regards to the new Poll position, I should have thought good about it first before making a decision.
I do plan on using that picture I made yes. I also plan on doing a video introduction of myself addressing the audience. I've asked a hardcore question already by the way, but I will use your music one.
Why did you undo the edit on the crashed airliner page? That was a good edit. Must have been the likely part. If you check the Transport plane page, you can see the crashed plane in the gallery. And in the GECK it matches exactly the ones in Camp McCarran. It's hard enough to get editors, don't discourage people who make an honest attempt. Jspoel 22:41, October 31, 2014 (UTC)
RE: Being lonely Edit
I'm sorry about that, that sounds tough. One of your solutions might be to perhaps move somewhere else. Do you have a job which can support yourself? Otherwise, maybe you could once in a while take a trip out of your town and visit somewhere else and see new people.
Bioshock 2 Edit
Well, I've completed Bioshock 2 a few days ago and it was really good. The gameplay was better than the first, but I just thought the story and characters weren't as strong as the first one. I did love Eleanor though:
"Love is just a chemical. We give it meaning by choice"
When Eleanor comes into the game in the last level or so, things get brilliant with the bond she shares with Delta. And I will say that the Neutral ending (where Delta sacrifices himself) was one of the most beautiful endings I've seen in a game before. I did get the Good ending on my first play through, but I watched the Neutral one on Youtube and thought it was far better with its emotion and redemption of Delta and Eleanor. Choosing to die rather than let her become corrupted like him, it brought me close to tears.
Ah, I'm not even talking about the Bad ending. The Neutral Sacrifice (Sophia lives in this one) ending where Eleanor gives you a choice was just beautiful and more realistic, as Delta and Eleanor are both imperfect and from Delta sacrificing himself he gives Eleanor the free will to make her own choices and fate. Delta chooses to die rather than let his darkness corrupt her. Much better than the "Pure Good" ending in my view which felt too sappy.
Sophia was kind of meh to me. Having a lunatic as your main antagonist took away any kind of emotional attachment I might have had with the story. Ryan was extreme, but he was a villain who I could sympathise with. Ultimately, he was just human and that was why he screwed up. He couldn't kill his own son and decided to choose his death. Truly an awesome and memorable character/antagonist. Although I do admit that the final battle was better than the end boss of Fontaine in the first game which I felt ruined the atmosphere and the story as the first Bioshock didn't need an end boss.
I just plain didn't like Sophia. She felt like a self-inserted character at the last minute. She's made out to be very important in the game from audio journals you find and posters yet there was no reference at all of her in the first game. Her goal wasn't noble at all, she was just bat-shit crazy. She wanted to create some non-sentient creature born from all the minds in Rapture, except she never thought that such a mindless being is no better than a robot. She also failed to think of whether the being might kill her if it determines her be evil or something. How does any such thing help anyone? Her plan had more holes than a colander.
I did play Minerva's Den actually, as I like achievements. It was a nice self-contained story with a good twist and tied off the Rapture story of the series quite nicely. I wouldn't bother with the Protector Trials, which was pretty much just try and get a high score. Such a mode could have been made an unlockable in the main game when you complete rather than a cost of £3/$5.
It was cool playing as a Little Sister near the end, it allowed you to see the world as they see it, which was quite unsettling as it looks all sunshine and rainbows to them, with the short glimpses of what it really looks like when you're harvesting ADAM.
Veteran's Day present Edit
Very nice dear heart ~ Is that the sun rise of a Zombie dawn or Happy sun set ?
- You did make a Halloween reference ~;) I hope yours was big fun !!

Polls for meEdit
Looking forward to you flooding my talk page actually. Would be pretty hard to come up with enough polls on my own. Two really good suggestions this week, I'll take a look at slotting one or both in now (maybe save one for a latter week).
Thanks for the suggestions.

Add it as a note to the behind the scenes section with a reference to the booklet. You can add as support that the GECK ID also indicates the change of name, where its editor ID is WhiteHorsenettleBerry. Jspoel 14:35, November 16, 2014 (UTC)
- You can see a few examples at the bottom of the Caesar page. The text of these references is found somewhere on the page. Search for <ref> and you can see how it works. Jspoel 23:53, November 17, 2014 (UTC)
Oh MY F *** ! Edit
They are canned soy hot-dogs, >>. Zombie fingers sound more tasty than veggie mess ~ I love ya Mz Leea But that is NASTY ~;P

Templates on the FEAR wikiEdit
I think I may have fixed it. It was doubled because Video and 250px was used in the template as well as in the article itself. I still had to change Video: into File: though in the template, otherwise it doesn't recognize the video. So just use the name of the file in the article, and leave the File and 250px out. (Replacing the video still doesn't work properly but at least you've the major problem solved.) Jspoel 16:32, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
- I'm not sure what you mean. I checked a dozen pages linking to the walkthrough template and they are all fine. (Almost) all pages are good and don't have the File and 250px on the Video parameter line. Someone did it right for those and you just went wrong with these 5 pages I just fixed. Jspoel 23:13, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
- Nothing weird. I think my change to the Video Walkthrough template from Video to File changed everything again today for the better. Jspoel 23:44, November 26, 2014 (UTC)
