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)

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)

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)

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)

About them icons. Like I said, the ones I cobbled up when I first had the idea look like crap.

Personally, I don't like the bottle cap surrounding the star. Can't we just have the star we already have, but in a different color for the various rightsholders? Jspoel Speech Jspoel 16:33, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
Gunny told me me to try something, this is best i came up with Starbottlecapfinal2, the star looks a bit weird, but started from the original star on the bottle caps, and i guess the angle is to blame.- Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 16:48, April 20, 2014 (UTC)

( The stars I've seen till now are (sorry to say) rather amateuristic. The one we have now is perfectly fine I think. Just fiddle a bit with the color, nothing more. Keep it simple I say. Jspoel Speech Jspoel 17:01, April 20, 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...

Fireban Edit

I'll be relaying this on all of your talk pages.

This seems to be a slam dunk to me. You all did seem to be kidding around a bit with south park references, the three of you told him to not bring SNM stuff over, he continued, Hail you told him that you weren't messing around, Fireburn you then asked "r u sur?" (sic) to which hail replied "yes" and you acknowledged that with a "mkay" and then "but first".

Fireburn, were also encouraging the use of admin tools with your "Go ahead" "Kick me MH", making me wonder if this was your intention all along - to provoke a ban and then get me to act.

In short Burn, they got you dead to rights, and I would have done the same. Agent c (talk) 13:50, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

No problem, happy to help :) --TribalWisdom(colour) Talk! 08:06, May 8, 2014 (UTC)

I figured there would be deaths like that all across the games (I've never played Fallouts 1 or 2, and I only got to complete New Vegas once before I lost it). That's why I was looking for unpreventable deaths specifically in Fallout 3. I thought it was noteworthy until I realized how many unsaveable characters I had forgotten about (Janice, Anna, Agnes Taylor, President Eden, possibly more I'm forgetting about at the moment). I'll try to come up with better edits. Thanks for complimenting me on my avatar, though. The Guy Lying In The Grass (talk) 21:57, May 8, 2014 (UTC)

mentioned-only pages Edit

If you would like some help with changing the pages, just let me know. If we divide the alphabet per game and one does A-Z and the other Z-A, we may finish is quicker? And on another note, I'm no native English speaker, so correct me if i'm wrong, but wouldn't it be better to just drop the "only" instead of moving it? It sounds better to me and only loses a minimum of accuracy I think. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 19:25, May 13, 2014 (UTC)

Can't promise I'll meet you in the middle, but I'll see what I can do. About the verification if it indeed apears only in that 1 game: is it enough to take trough the page or do I also have to search the wiki elsewhere? - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 19:42, May 13, 2014 (UTC)

Inquiry request Edit

Hey Ryan. I've been asked to form a neutral, three-admin committee to investigate the events that happened last night (or really early this morning for most of Europe, I think) in chat. There will be chat logs that provide adequate coverage of what was said, and I'd encourage you to also look at these relevant talk pages: User talk:Limmiegirl, User talk:Agent c, User talk:TheGunslingerReturns..., and User talk:GarouxBloodline. Basically, the events concern the chat ban (and later site ban, although this was removed rather quickly) of User:GarouxBloodline. The chat ban was performed by User:TheGunslingerReturns...

Please review the relevant materials, if you will, and we will come together to discuss this matter and present our findings and conclusions. --Skire (talk) 18:11, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

Alright. When you have time, just let me know when and where we three can meet. The Chinese FO wiki chat is also available, if need be. --Skire (talk) 21:24, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hi Ry,

Re the investigation. As currently constituted there are some flaws with the investigation. Firstly that the body was convened outside of policy in that a bureaucrat is required to appoint the 3 (I think that you'll agree when looking at slinger's method of ban doing something outside the norm to investigate something outside of the norm is somewhat hypocritical); additionally there have been questions raised about skire's involvement in the events (being in communication with several participants during the event).

After discussing this with Skire, in order to resolve these flaws I'm asking yourself and X to continue looking into the situation, but to work with Follower instead of Skire. Skire has agreed this is appropriate, he doesn't concede his neutrality but does agree that a replacement may be warranted. Additionally, this puts the investigation in line with policy.

Although I was present, I don't expect me putting the rubber stamp on this to in any way effect your investigation. Agent c (talk) 21:58, May 14, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the link. By my reading - "Pages in the "User" namespace are generally considered to be the property of the user they belong to... and nobody else is allowed to edit without your permission."

means I am allowed to edit my own user page correct? Mad Dog Fargo (talk) 06:03, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

I see. You guys have different rules here. Mad Dog Fargo (talk) 07:39, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
I can appreciate the site's own rules, that's why I asked. However, I disagree to the well thought out part. Using a user's talk page to 'tar' and mark a user for undoing a revert, because one admin is friends with another, is one. It's a long story, but it would be good for some of the admins here to follow the policies they enforce. Mad Dog Fargo (talk) 08:29, June 4, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the kind response. You seem to be one of the more reasonable admins here (I think I've interacted with you before). Like I said it's long story, and the quick-triggered edit-warring warning (no 3RR rule here I've learned) is just one part of it. Mad Dog Fargo (talk) 08:48, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Fantasy food truck battle Edit

Hey, first off, love the profile pic, I even know the episode that is from.

Anyway, The Elder Scrolls wiki wanted to know if it would be possible for us to help each other with the Fantasy food battle. We figure we are both Bethesda and are not competing, so no reason not to help each other. That and Gravity falls seems to be the only wiki we are facing that has a massive fan base and is campaigning, so we are a little nervous.

I hope you guys are doing well preparing for the next fallout game, new games are an exciting moment for a wiki. I know things will go well, this is a very well maintained wiki. Good luck, and happy editing.-Cheatcodechamp (talk) 04:40, August 20, 2015 (UTC)
