Ellipses II: The Dottening

Alright. We actually went over this back in 2018, but I never got a proper answer to my question. So, I ask for a second time: what's the deal with you constantly changing all ellipsis symbols (…) to trios of periods? Is there some rule in the Manual of Style that I missed, somewhere? If so, why doesn't that apply to en dashes (–) which, under similar logic, would be converted to double-hyphens or a single dash? I know there's a expected level of professionalism when editing Wiki pages. I learned that the hard way from contributing to Wikipedia. But, WarioBarker? Wiki pages aren't manuscripts, and this sure-as-heck isn't Chicago.

So, if there's something that I legitimately missed in the site rules, or there's some stubborn reason you keep doing this, I'd like to see/hear it. This is important to me.

Honestly...it's really just personal preference, as I've always used the three-periods version on other sites and in my personal files. There's also the fact I edit from a mobile device which doesn't allow me to insert the ellipsis symbols via the onscreen keyboard, though yes I can use copy-paste.
As for the en dashes, single dashes are again personal preference, though admittedly I've overlooked a few instances. I used to use en dashes on other sites and double-hyphens in my personal files, but eventually I began not liking how they looked and switched to single dashes.
I get that my style isn't to everyone's taste, so I'll stop messing with the ellipses and en dashes. -WarioBarker (talk) 14:48, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Hey, man. Just because I got on your case (twice) about it doesn't mean you should stop doing things your way. There's no rule about this stuff, either way, and it's not like you're doing it to spite anyone. If you prefer individual periods and simple dashes, keep doing it that way! I will always concede to grammatical edits like that because, like with you, I have my own preferences. Besides, " …" and "…" are a fair bit longer than "..." in an HTML file. ;)
Super-thanks for the answer! I was hoping it was something reasonable, and it totally was~

Your Zombieville 1997 Edits (from 03/02/21)

Hello there!

I've noticed that you've made some edits to my Zombieville 1997 entry, particularly here: https://tcrf.net/index.php?title=Zombieville_(1997)/Oddities&diff=prev&oldid=896384

I wanted to say thanks for your help! I appreciate it!

Thanks again,

Hot Wheels World Race

Can you fix the grammar errors on the page? I know I made a lot of errors and it looks very sloppy.

Gunmetal (1998) Page

Say when I do finally get the time to properly fill out that article (2022 had other plans so never did get around to it when I wanted to), how does one move it back to the proper games listing?

AlbertHamik (talk) 11 November 2022

At the top of the page, select More, then Move. On the next page, under "New title:" select "(Main)" in the first box's dropdown menu and remove "AlbertHamik/" from the second box (the "Reason:" box is optional), then hit the "Move page" button. -WarioBarker (talk) 06:42, 11 November 2022 (UTC)
—Oh okay thanks! —AlbertHamik (talk) 11 November 2022


I noticed you deleted the Shadowgate series template and added "Beyond Shadowgate" to the "MacVenture" template. The problem is Beyond Shadowgate is not a MacVenture game, only ICOM's games that originated on Apple's Macintosh qualify for that. That's why you have three unrelated IPs in that same series template. Shadowgate is its own series and has several games that did not originate in the Mac (and one that isn't even a point & click game). Other pages have multiple series templates if the games fall into different categories, for example, Donkey Kong is both in the DK series and Mario template. So I don't believe it was the right decision to delete the Shadowgate template. ReyVGM (talk) 03:21, 3 April 2023 (UTC)

You're right. I'll take my lumps for this one. Thanks for reverting my edits. 👍 -WarioBarker (talk) 03:35, 3 April 2023 (UTC)
No prob. It was going to look very jarring if someone makes a page for Shadowgate 64 and adds that game to the "MacVenture" template :P ReyVGM (talk) 03:42, 3 April 2023 (UTC)

hopefully this ain't too rude but

just wondering, regarding the uh, mario clock page, did you intend to change DSi Shop to eShop? just wondering, if that's alright, just wanted to know if there was a reason (and if you're alright with me correcting it to DSi Shop) MaidenTree (talk) 15:15, 22 April 2023 (UTC)

Stylistic Edits

Hey. If something's objectively incorrect, go ahead and fix it. If there's more informative data that could be added or information that could be better organized, go for it. But, while I know you mean well, maybe reconsider making minor stylistic edits to people's writing (for example, arbitrarily rewording a sentence)? It feels a bit unwelcome and nit-picky to me.

(Also, I know that technically, TCRF doesn't usually leave white spaces between sections and such, but I really appreciate having that for pages that I'm the only one working on, at least while I'm actively editing.)

Dad Jokes Removal

I like what you do with the site when it comes to grammar and downsizing pages, but… why did you remove my stupid dad jokes from the Proto:Mega Man: Powered Up page. ),:

So… that was incredibly unhelpful. Also, I was talking to WarioBarker, not you. This does not concern you. (: Edit: Well, now it does. d:
Also, please don't move my signature around. If I wanted it to be on the same line as my thoughts, I would put it there. Thank you.
~ Jo Li (U, T, C) 15:28, 24 June 2023 (UTC)
Be...cause they're stupid? Okay, seriously - I think my thought process (and I'm saying that because I was editing at 1 in the morning instead of sleeping, so there's a good chance my brain was running on fumes) was that they looked like the kind of comments I've seen on newly-created pages in the past, so I ousted them because I thought they seemed dopey. In any case, I've added them back. -WarioBarker (talk) 23:57, 24 June 2023 (UTC)
But you were right to do so, they were stupid and they go against the rules posted above. ReyVGM (talk) 00:41, 25 June 2023 (UTC)
They did not go against the rules posted above, Rey. I did not edit the article "just to add humor" as I was changing the stub page into a hub page (da-dum bum), and I was not "offensive" beyond the fact that the wordplay was "Dad-level". Now, maybe I did "overdo it" a tiny bit. That said, I've revised the "jokes". Thank you for your unsolicited but honest feedback. You wienie. (;
~ Jo Li (U, T, C) 01:48, 25 June 2023 (UTC)
Oof. I can relate to running on fumes. Been there recently with an article here, in fact! But, I digress.
I can definitely see how you'd look at those "jokes", roll your eyes, and erase them. They were a bit forced. I've gone ahead and modified the text to focus more on facts than funny. Thank you for your response and keep up the good work!

Prerelease Timelines Stuff

Hi there just a quick question, are development timelines on prerelease pages meant to use ordinal dates (May 3rd rather than May 3) or is it up to personal preference? Though I use ordinal, I'm not entirely certain which is more favoured on this wiki. --Mantis (talk) 04:53, 16 November 2023 (UTC)

No clue which is more favored (the rules on Prerelease pages don't say one way or the other), but it seems it's just up to personal preference. -WarioBarker (talk) 00:13, 17 November 2023 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for clarifying. --Mantis (talk) 01:35, 17 November 2023 (UTC)

Regarding the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster page Rename.

Why did you rename the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster page? The game is literally called that in various places such as store fronts, Wikipedia and fan wikis. (If you are able to), can you rename the article back to the correct title please? --Mantis (talk) 10:27, 9 March 2024 (UTC)

I renamed it because the correct title made it a subpage of Final Fantasy X titled "X-2 HD Remaster", which I'm pretty sure wasn't the intent of the page creator. Using an ampersand was the best solution I could think of. -WarioBarker (talk) 00:50, 10 March 2024 (UTC)
