Magnificent First Day

Welcome again HTD and many thanks for jumping in and improving our wiki by updating from some of the more modern sources - very much appreciated and, as they say, keep up the good work. --Fleanetha (talk) 19:43, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

...and miraculous follow up

Hello again HTD. What you have done on our wiki is miraculous - many, many thanks, and that is the most important message. Please don't be offended by the small changes I have made to the templates you've been working on. You may be correct in some of them, but I have reversed those I cannot immediately see why a deletion was necessary. If you disagree / are unclear just type a little note in the Discussion/Template Talk page for the template and we can discuss properly. This is safer than a hard deletion that may be missed. Updating the template documentation would also help the reviewers understand your intention. --Fleanetha (talk) 09:57, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Template help

To help you set up your pages, HTD, and to maintain consistency, did you know there are proforma page templates? For instance, for a new page about a creature, open the blank page at at the top you'll see an 'Article template toolbox'. Open it up by clicking on the [show] button, click on [show] for 'People and beings', then click 'Creature' and a standardly formatted Creature page is created ready for completion. Much of the template, page structure, and categories are pre-populated for your ease. You can use comments to block out any sections not yet needed too ready for later editors to complete when that information is published. This will also help the editors review your input. Let me know if you can't access this helpmate. --Fleanetha (talk) 14:18, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

I think I can help you find them (and there are a few). If I make up a name of a page that will never exist, osaahflahsflhsaflksa, you can click on that and the template tool appears at the top of your screen just below the text: 'If you are here by mistake, click your browser's back button.' - have a play. I am confident that link will stay red even if Bestiary 7 is published. --Fleanetha (talk) 16:11, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Deletions

Your deletion of ostovite from Template:Demon species navbox stated 'not a demon' as the rationale. Thanks for adding a rationale, it does help. However, this time, the creature is described as a demon in the reference source given under the navbox, so I have undone the deletion. Please provide more evidence / open a conversation at Template talk:Demon species navbox and we can amend appropriately thereafter. I made some comments above about how best to handle such deletions - anything you can do to help reviewers is appreciated. -Fleanetha (talk) 08:50, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

answered your last point in my User talk area, HTD. --Fleanetha (talk) 21:08, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Make a User Page!!!

You seem to be posting a lot. It'd be nice not to have so many red-linked HTDs in recent changes *wink*—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 03:51, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

And here I thought I was posting this in your talk page. I guess I went and made you a user page! But it's empty now that I moved the text here. So, while the red links are gone, your user page is so sad!—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 03:54, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Removing references

Thanks for updating articles with information from newer sources. However, please don't delete references to older sources, especially if they contain the same or similar information. Users who might not own the newer sources can still use the wiki to find information on that subject. Some examples include refences you removed from Higashiyama Shigure and xiomorn. The best practice recommended by the canon policy is to discuss deletion plans on an article's talk pages before making the change.

Also, if content in newer sources conflicts with older sources, please follow the policy on canon conflicts to document and resolve the conflicts. -Oznogon (talk) 20:28, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

I've restored another reference removed without explanation, this time from neothelid. Please do not delete references without an explanation. -Oznogon (talk) 07:26, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
I've restored an item you removed from Template:Robot navbox without explanation. To be more explicit, please do not delete citations, categories, or navbox list items without explanation, and if there is any doubt then discuss or explain when deleting anything. It saves everyone the trouble of trying to guess at what could be motivating that decision, and discussion gives others who have worked on these articles and tools a chance to review and suggest further or alternative changes. -Oznogon (talk) 05:44, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

Spoiler policy

Pages you created for Secret Shade, Erich Zann, Userib, Cassilda, Maukui, Lencia Visserene, Katiyana, Anamurumon, and Kimandatsu have all had spoiler badges added to them by an administrator in the last few days. Please review the spoiler policy and add spoiler {{Badges}} to articles you create that contain spoilers. -Oznogon (talk) 07:26, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

People have either asked or told you to err on the side of badges for three months, and wasted time following after you cleaning it up for you. We've revised and expanded the policy for you.
At this point we're running the wiki on your schedule, to suit you, and you still add blatant spoilers. You still rip up categories, references, content, all of it, without collaborating, without thinking about anyone but your own use.
It's disheartening. It's disruptive, wasteful, and ignores policy. If you don't like the policy, it can change! Just ask! Talk it out! But you're just a goddamned steamroller!
It's driving me off of this site. I'm out. It's yours. Hell with it -Oznogon (talk) 03:06, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Giant template

Thanks for updating Template:Giant species, HTD. Can you add a rationale in the navbox please to indicate why the three giant types, Inverted giant, Mongrel giant, and Runeslave have been separated off at the bottom. I have already added for you a hidden title to show where it goes and how it should look. --Fleanetha (talk) 11:27, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

So, can you add the rationale please in the navbox? --Fleanetha (talk) 12:53, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Please take a break

We cannot manage some of the very far-reaching changes you're making. Since you continue to decline to discuss fundamental changes before making them, please take a day or two off from the wiki so admins, who are not in your timezone, can catch up and discuss. If you continue to make such changes to the wiki, I'll enforce this request with a temporary block. -Oznogon (talk) 00:24, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for taking a step back and allowing us to start planning around the change to Nocticula. Please discuss at PathfinderWiki talk:Nocticula Revision Initiative to help us work through the ramifications of that change before we start editing related articles collaboratively. -Oznogon (talk) 23:54, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Helping by adding canon sources

You've been busy adding new articles, but it looks like you never followed up on many of them to add canon sources. Here's a list of more than 200 articles you created that don't have any canon source citations for content beyond Bestiary monster statistics:

Since you have an interest in these subjects, you can help to improve the wiki by adding at least one canon source for these articles. For details, please see Special:WikiForum/A quest! Improving articles that cite no canon sources. -Oznogon (talk) 05:38, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Norgorber

Hello HTD. I am looking at your latest update to Norgorber here and cannot find anything relating to the topic discussed - "The halfling god Thamir Gixx ..." - at either reference you've made to the section from Crownfall. I am guessing it's simply a cut and paste error. Could you have a look please and add the refs you actually meant please? --Fleanetha (talk) 14:10, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Please take another break

HTD, the administrator team need to discuss how we handle the issues around your input to the wiki, balancing the positive enhancements you make against the vast amount of administrative work it generates and your repeated failure to take on board our requests to amend some of your behaviour. Please step back from editing the wiki now while we try to catch up and have our discussion. We'll let you know our decision as soon as we can, but please allow at least a fortnight for this. --Fleanetha (talk) 18:09, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
