Third-Person DiscussionEdit

Hi. I've opened up a forum to discuss a proposal to deal with our first-person-in-articles issue. Can you please give it a glance and share any feedback. Thanks 69.l25 (talk) 04:40, February 12, 2014 (UTC)

Tumbleweed RanchEdit

If people start editing on the same page just after I did, I'm checking it. Force of habit. Even admins... Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:25, March 6, 2014 (UTC)

I knew that. Things are good over here, thanks. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 18:31, March 6, 2014 (UTC)

Request for recommendation Edit

I would like you, User:Tocinoman and User:Skire to take a look at a recent edit made by ToCxHawK on his user page. It seems that after another user was banned from chat (and later site-blocked), ToCxHawK posted a quote of that user's comment, the one the other user was banned for, on his user page (which he later removed). Frankly, to me, posting that comment in any form, quoting someone else or not, is very disturbing, and I feel a violation of policy meriting administrative action. I understand that we are required to assume good faith, so I asked him on his talk page to explain the reasoning behind posting the offensive quoted comment. His reply to me can be summed up as "I found it hilarious". I, personally, can find no humor at all in someone saying what the quoted user said. His explanation, to me, does not show he posted the objectionable content in error or any other way that can be termed "good faith". It appears to me that he either agrees with the sentiment, or, more probably, that he enjoys the offensive comment so much that he choose to re-post it as a quote on his user page.

If it were left up to me, he would be blocked for this edit. But understanding that I am one of the main targets of the comment he quoted, I am not comfortable doing that. I would prefer that you three examine this and return a recommendation to me for action. Please, in concert with the others, examine this and let me know of your decision, whatever that may be, as soon as you find possible. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 01:11, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you guys for getting back to me quickly. Before I act on your recommendation and remove his rights for 2 weeks, there's one question I feel needs to be asked: The incident in question does not involve his use of rights. It's a user conduct issue from my perspective. I would appreciate it if you could detail your rationale of using administrative conduct discipline (removal of rights) over user conduct discipline (site block). I suspect it's his position as moderator, but my question to that would be: What would your recommendation be if the user in question held no extra rights and why is that different in this case? I want to apply our policies as fairly as possible. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 18:50, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for the recommendation. It will be implemented immediately. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 03:54, March 9, 2014 (UTC)

Chattin' up a stormEdit

Think you could pop into chat for a few minutes? Toci US Air Force Into the wild blue yonder... 03:24, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

Chat Question Edit

Hey is something going on in chat? I cant seem to join. Every time I do it just logs me out, when I visit a different page it has me logged in? Anything going on that I might not be able to do that?—Preceding unsigned comment added by Fireburn12 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Response Edit

Hey Ryan, How's it going? I wrote you a response to your vote to try and clear up the screenshot. If you could read it and let me know anything about it, That would be great! Thank you! RangerSequoia "Some say this user is a Patroller..." Wiki 07:58, March 15, 2014 (UTC)

Edit on Metro Central Edit

Hey TwoBears, you changed my edit on Metro Central. I knew someone would, I just kind of wanted to draw attention to the fact that the layout description mentions only three dead female talons when there are four. I posted about it on the talk page. If you could comment on the talk or edit the page to fix this I'd appreciate it. 18:58, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

Bot Edit

That should just about do it. Thanks,  The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 02:54, March 21, 2014 (UTC)

I went ahead and reconfigured AWB to run here and did the edits. Find/replace worked enough to do it. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 02:41, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
No worries. I needed to get that thing set up for here anyways. Now I just need a bot account. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 16:06, March 22, 2014 (UTC)

Happy birthday!Edit

Hope you have a good one. --Skire (talk) 23:11, March 28, 2014 (UTC)

Birthdizzle Edit

Hey Ryan, Happy Birthday man! RangerSequoia "Some say this user is a Moderator..." Wiki 23:47, March 28, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry Edit

Sorry, Ryan. I hit ban right after Paladin kick that guy and it banned you. You're unbanned, I hope the ban undid properly. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 02:19, March 31, 2014 (UTC)

Legionary Assassin>BugsEdit

My apologies. I didn't realize it was overdue. However, on the rewording part, Legionary Assassins always travel in packs, so noting that was a little redundant.Foxi Hooves (talk) 04:36, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Chat .js/.cssEdit

Hey Ryan. I totally and blatantly copied your chat javascript and css just to see what it did, and it didn't do anything. I think I know what it's supposed to do, but I'm curious as to what you're trying. Is it to sort the users into usergroups in the chat list? Sorry for being annoying :P FollowersApocalypseLogo A Follower  Talk  04:46, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Ahh. I can see that now. Could be a good little addition for clarity. FollowersApocalypseLogo A Follower  Talk  04:52, April 7, 2014 (UTC)


Hm, maybe it will work. Perhaps it should be given a test phase, to see how it works and what can be gained from that, then see what if it will be kept or be disabled. Energy X 18:11, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Sounds like a good idea, but I don't understand why it should be a feature exclusive to administrators. It's only for convenience after all -- clicking on "A Wikia Contributor" would bring you to their contributions page, displaying their IP. Am I missing something? --Skire (talk) 18:56, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

I'm not entirely clear on what this would do? Would it take us directly the the contributions page or do something else?---bleep196- (talk) 00:58, April 8, 2014 (UTC)

In that case I'd fully support such a change for all users of the wiki. --Skire (talk) 01:58, April 8, 2014 (UTC)

Script Edit

Saw your script earlier, and felt I should point out that such a script has already existed here for quite some time. I even use a version of it myself that does not need Administrative rights, and have been for well over a year now. Thought I would mention that in-case it would be easier to work off of an already existing script instead of starting from scratch. ForGaroux Some Assembly Required! 23:33, April 11, 2014 (UTC)


Hey Burrs, you said you would endorse me, when do you think I should run for chat mod? I'm ready whenever you are, man. Dead Gunner's SMG JPG1 "Semper Invictus" 23:50, April 15, 2014 (UTC)

icons Edit

About them icons. Like I said, the ones I cobbled up when I first had the idea look like crap. We can either A: find someone who can make nice one, or B: Wait until I have a chance to see if I can do so myself, which would probably be this upcoming weekend. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 00:05, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

For what it's worth, here's the two I made. Never did make one for BCs. Icon-chatadminIcon-chatmod The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 00:12, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
That one's easy. Hover over the star in chat and right click. Select "inspect element" and it will show you the link to the image on wikia's servers. The Gunny  UserGunny chevrons 20:02, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

Certain User Edit

Do you know the name of the other account "A SOVIET WOLF" (now named Slade-Wilson) was using to get a sock puppet/circumvent ban here?

Some are saying he used the name change to get around the ban but I don't think that works...
