Updating armour pages[edit]

Just wanted to say thanks for the incredible work you've done so far on all of those armour pages. That's a lot of information you've had to sort through and clean up! G R E E N E R 00:49, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you! I appreciate the feedback! BuffsEverywhere (talk) 01:25, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

About NPC images[edit]

There's a Shared Model Project, which could save you time when adding character model images to new or existing articles. Or You can help improve it ^^ - J.P.User J.P. sigicon.png 15:33, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up! However, I think having the right background is important - it makes finding some NPCs easier, which in my opinion is more helpful than just documenting the model. BuffsEverywhere (talk) 20:49, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing spam on my user page[edit]

saw your revert, thank you :) -- KillerRabbit 👯💬 13:50, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Glad to help! --BuffsEverywhere (talk) 14:12, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Kinda tempted to revert that[edit]

with regards to this edit, NPC's are not really supposed to be set as located inside POI locations. This may be a reminder for me to go through and replace the location=poi with location=area-name. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 07:11, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

Yup, that's true but even if the NPC was set incorrectly, it's better that the template shows a POI than a dash... --BuffsEverywhere (talk) 09:15, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

"There is no minimum number of contributions required to voice an opinion on the state of the wiki or community."[edit]

This isn't necessarily always the case. On GWW, users had to have an account and had a certain number of qualifying edits to participate in bureaucrat elections. horrible | contribs 11:46, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

That is a massive stretch and was only there to prevent mass creation of new accounts for potentially stacking votes. Neither wiki however has ever had a metric for minimum contribuitions, for someone to have an oppinion. Thats a strong misread of that rule, Horrible. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 11:50, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
Yes, but i think it's applicable here. Otherwise a flood of IPs/New users could come in and determine what the wiki says regarding this topic. horrible | contribs 12:16, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
Nope. It doesnt apply. The wiki rules through consensus, not voting. The only reason their was a limit on BC elections is because voting was an integral element of the process itself. If ip's and new users have an oppinion, they are more than welcome to engage with the discussion being had. It will go into the pot of discourse and debate that the wiki community is engaging in and will be afforeded the weight due to the merits of the oppinion itself. You can not be arguing in favour of a more inclusive wiki environment, while simulataneously arguing that some shouldn't be afforded a voice.
Anyway sorry for having this debate on your page Buffs. -- Salome User salome sig2.png 12:29, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
“On GWW, users had to have an account and had a certain number of qualifying edits to participate in bureaucrat elections”
There is a very simple reason for that though which does not apply anywhere else: Bureaucrat elections were solely decided by the vote tally, i.e. the number of votes. During the voting stage, there was no more discussion and only the actual vote itself counted. So to prevent abuse, we required every voter to be an actual member of the community.
This does not apply to anything else though: Discussions are not decided by vote counts or by who is the loudest. People are encouraged to form consensus, and for that every voice is welcome, regardless of whether that user is a long-term contributor, a new contributor or an anonymous user just there to voice their opinion. poke | talk 12:43, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
Fair enough, I see that I misunderstood the reasoning behind it and shouldn't have confused strict voting with a community-driven consensus. horrible | contribs 12:50, 13 June 2020 (UTC)
