Talk Pages Edit

He probably did it by accident dear, it happens sometimes. Both of us are Jr. Admin's and wouldn't do anything to deter other people's opinions from being displayed. There is no reason to shout at him for it so please refrain from using capital letters as that is showing that you are shouting and therefor losing your temper over an accidental write over. Please refrain from doing so. Thank you. --Nynaeve 08:38, 21 September 2006 (EDT)

An edit conflict FOUR HOURS after I posted my comment? I think not. Toksyuryel 16:35, 22 September 2006 (EDT)

Comment deletion Edit

I apologize, I believe there was an editing conflict, and I inadvertently put my comment over yours. It was a mistake on my part, and I apologize. --Chrisjander 10:45, 21 September 2006 (EDT)

Your comment was posted four hours after mine was. Please note the timestamps carefully. There was no edit conflict. Toksyuryel 16:36, 22 September 2006 (EDT)

Redirects Edit

We as a community, and we as admins have discussed redirects before and yes - redirects made w/out links, misspellings of words, and basically any redirect in general that isn't deemed necessary - like a link to an armor set - completely unneccesary seeing as you can look it up by just typing in the name of the set such as Yigit and it will come up. No need to make a redirect. Even if a mispelled/misnamed page has one thing linking to it - the improper names will be changed on any pages it links to and the redirect will be deleted once it no longer has links. This is our policy on redirects and yes this HAS been discussed and the decision to delete these redirects has already been made. NO POINTLESS REDIRECTS. We do not encourage laziness in people. The search will show you what you need to find. Armor Sets are not like zones or jobs or anything really important and they certainly dont need different names to redirect to it like DRG > Dragoon.

So to reiterate - we have talked about this before and as it currently stands - we do not need these redirects and it has been our policy to delete them. Sorry if that upsets you but that is how it is. If you type in the name of something and hit go and there isnt a page for it - the search function will show you the choices. Utilize that. Thanks for understanding. --Nynaeve 12:42, 27 January 2007 (EST)

Why did you post this on MY talk page? The discussion was begun on your talk page, all replies should be kept there. Or is this another one of these nebulus "it's a policy because we said so and not for any logical reason that would actualy improve the quality of the wiki"s? --Toksyuryel 16:48, 27 January 2007 (EST)

Er, I'm going to remain neutral in your discussion of the redirects (I kinda understand where you are coming from with the redirects simply because people would type them in, but you could always try to put more options when you are searching (such as adding categories to your search results)), but people post in other people's talk pages because you get that message about having new thingies in your talk page, therefore you do not have to camp your watchlist, their talk page, recent changes, their contributions, or whatever. The only thing I'll comment on is how you type. If you want to win, compromise, or understand someone (especially admins, they're scary, no offense any admin. reading this >_>), you should try to type in a neutral point of view, or friendly. However, I can understand your stress (if you have any), especially since it seems you have had a not-so-good past experience with that whole "edit conflict" episode. Also, please do not take anything I said against you, I am simply trying to help you win this argument. --Jopasopa 17:23, 27 January 2007 (EST)

Thank you Jopasopa for explaining it. He is right, when someone posts something on someone else's talk page, the next wiki page that that person opens will show that they have a new message waiting for them on their talk page. Hence why it is normal to post replies back and forth on talk pages so that whoever is involved will know immediately when a response is made. Personally, I chose to get emails when someone posts a response/comment to anything on my Talk Page so I know immediately when I get one. I don't normally camp my watchlists and I only check Recent Changes relatively once a day now.
This is why it is the norm when users want to converse with another specific user to talk back and forth via each others talk pages. If you respond to something on your own talk page - there is no guarentee that the person who messaged you in the first place will see your response. Like the conflict above this - neither Chris nor I knew that you responded to us seeing as you didn't post it on our talk pages - hence no comment back - the only reason I saw that you commented here in the first place was Jopa's response causing frequent posting here. I hope this helps you in your understanding of the normal protocol for these kinds of situations and I hope you continue to enjoy using the FFXIclopedia. --Nynaeve 18:16, 27 January 2007 (EST)

Int and Resists Edit

Could you update the INT page of the wiki with your data on how INT works? Tsavi 06:29, 19 February 2007 (EST)

Broken names Edit

Then do something about all the broken names, because that adds to the Wanted pages/category sections which makes me a sad panda. --Charitwo 18:45, 15 March 2007 (EDT)

"Wanted Pages" should ignore the user: namespace, if it doesn't someone ought to go in and fix that. --Toksyuryel 19:18, 15 March 2007 (EDT)

Mob Type Edit

I hate to tell you this after you've manually changed so many pages, but "mob" should actually be "monster," since "mob" is slang and not used in the game. I'll change the pages if I can get around to it, but I figured you'd like to know why without seeing it a million times in editing comments. ~ Karuberu 01:38, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

It's no problem. Even the admins occasionally use "mob" when "monster" should be used instead (i.e. Mob Template). I didn't get around to it yesterday, so feel free to change them yourself, if you'd like. ~ Karuberu 13:08, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
