Kudos on the Final Fantasy Tactics finds! I'm interested to see what else is lingering about. -- Rick 16:17, 18 May 2010 (EDT)

Thanks. FFT is one of my favorite games, and was one of the first games I was able to discover any unused content in, so it's kinda special to me in that regard. =P That said, I unfortunately no longer have my PS1 or Gameshark, so I'm writing much of this from memory, and as I said in the article, some of it may be hazy. I'll attempt to re-test/clarify it and get some screens of this stuff via emulator some time, though. -YK 16:41, 18 May 2010 (EDT)

Wow! Thanks for getting those images of the unused Knights of Justice items. I was just about to make an edit asking if anyone with hacking skills could do that. That was really quick! The Sapphire of Truth is a palette swap of the other gems, but I'm pretty sure all the other sprites are unique, so that's quite interesting. --Flying Omelette 20:53, 19 May 2010 (EDT)

I should thank *you* for pointing out those items in the first place! I'd have never otherwise known they were there! I actually read your KoJ article a while back, and was curious. When I saw you were porting some of your findings here, I decided to try hacking the inventory to see if they still existed. My method of finding them wasn't very sophisticated (I basically found the inventory offsets in a savestate and put in a bunch of random numbers until they popped up), but hey, it worked! Also... weren't you the one who pointed out the missing Robotrek Programmers' Room song in the SNESMusic.org SPC set not long ago? Thanks for that, too. =P -YK 20:57, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
Yup, that was me. I'm going back a few years now, but I think I also mentioned the missing Ogre Lair song in Knights of Justice, the hidden song at the end of Star Fox if you wait at the final screen for several minutes, and the missing tavern theme in Drakkhen. I'll always let you know if I find anything else that's missing. And thanks go to you and everyone else at SNESMusic.org for working so hard on making those SPC sets available to game music enthusiasts like myself. --Flying Omelette 21:14, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
Yeah, I remember that, now that you mention it... Also, got a bit of info about Blackwing. I don't remember where I read it (I don't *think* it was your site, but I could be wrong; if so, forgive me for saying something dumb), but I've heard speculation that Blackwing may have been replaced in-game with the dragon you fight early on, since it's the only boss in the game (that I'm aware of) that *isn't* listed among that text you found. Maybe that's where he was supposed to be fought, but the developers decided it was too early for a Warlord battle at that point? -YK 21:21, 19 May 2010 (EDT)
That's definitely a possibility and I have a feeling it's probably the truth. I actually speculated about that when I submitted the KoJ article to Rick's wiki, but I omitted that sentence when I copied the article over, because I felt I was speculating too much and I was trying to keep my hopes up. --Flying Omelette 21:42, 19 May 2010 (EDT)

If you're still looking for GameShark codes for Breath of Fire 3, would these help? http://www.bsfree.org/?s=1&d=8&g=9394 (bsfree.org's usually a good place to look for GS, PAR, etc. codes...) --Aoi 03:23, 17 September 2010 (EDT)

Thanks! It doesn't have the walk-through-walls code I'm gonna need, but it's got everything else I need. This will be a big help, and finally allow me to continue that page. -YK YK-sig.png 14:58, 17 September 2010 (EDT)

new heading with no name because derp

I wasn't gonna make a page for one unused item, but seeing as how it's here and all...

Nyet! Always make a new page even if it's for something trivial. You never know when something miniscule will lead to the game getting further exploration and discoveries!

Example: Recca's article started as just a "Sega-like sound and logos", then some more research turned it into the full intro it is now. --Xkeeper 03:16, 23 May 2010 (EDT)

Hm. You're right. The purpose of this Wiki *is*, after all, to list all manner of unused stuff, no matter how much or how little. I still know about quite a bit of unused stuffs from various other games. And yeah, now that you mention it... had the Knights of Justice page not been ported here, I'd never had tried to find the unused item icons, which lead me to screwing up a save in such a way that it lead others to the discovery of debug mode. Cause and effect, and all that. -YK 03:40, 23 May 2010 (EDT)
Trivia: I may never have found any of the unused stuff in Knights of Justice had I not read that Nintendo Power article where the developer said Blackwing was his favorite boss. I thought, "Wait a minute, there's no Blackwing boss in this game", and that led to me opening up the ROM in tile viewers and notepad and asking around for codes in hopes of trying to find it. --Flying Omelette 07:35, 23 May 2010 (EDT)

just a quick thanks. :o

Thanks for neatening up the FFVI thing I just put up. >>; not enough sleep for me to write a good thing, but... enough consciousness to know that it ought to be up here. You own! --RahanAkero 04:18, 29 May 2010 (EDT)

Mega Man redirects

Mega Man 5 and V are technically different games, being the GB game and NES game respectively. But... --Xk-sig.png Xkeeper (talk) 16:08, 30 May 2010 (EDT)

Ah, you're right. Good thing I didn't do any roman numeral redirects yet, then. -YK YK-sig.png 16:19, 30 May 2010 (EDT)


Moves

Fixing template. I'd have done the redirect properly, but "Final Fantasy VI" was *already* a redirect.

Solution: Get an admin to do it. Losing the page history just to make a redirect is a terrible thing. --Xk-sig.png Xkeeper (talk) 15:47, 31 May 2010 (EDT)

Ah. I hadn't thought of that... Will do next time. That's what I get for trying to do things on my own. Oh well. =P -YK YK-sig.png 15:47, 31 May 2010 (EDT)
Yeah, and sorry about the rollback. That was supposed to be an undo. --Xk-sig.png Xkeeper (talk) 15:50, 31 May 2010 (EDT)
No big, it was an easy fix. Still, I apologize for some of my silly amateurish mistakes. I've been to other wikis before, but I haven't really done a whole lot on them; this is the first one in which I've done a heavy amount of editing, so I'm still learning some stuff. I hope I've been more "useful" than "troublesome" here, though -YK YK-sig.png 15:54, 31 May 2010 (EDT)
Hey, don't be so hard on yourself. You've been pretty useful here. -- Rick 15:55, 31 May 2010 (EDT)
This is a learning process for everyone, not just you. --Xk-sig.png Xkeeper (talk) 15:58, 31 May 2010 (EDT)


New heading herp de derp

I think I put that TVTropes link up, but I've been tempted to move it closer to the top of the page. Kinda debating it, though, and feels like it might be a baaaaad idea... --Xk-sig.png Xkeeper (talk) 04:34, 25 June 2010 (EDT)

Well, I just saw it there one day, followed it here, and hey. Why do you think it'd be a bad idea to move it up, though? -YK YK-sig.png 13:51, 25 June 2010 (EDT)

If you want to check the quality of your MP3s-vs-OGGvorbis recordings, there is a simple program called Infomer that proves to be very useful. http://www.neillcorlett.com/informer/ Nensondubois 23:24, 19 July 2010 (EDT)

Final Fantasy IX

Is it possible that the character portraits are stored as TIM files, just like in FFVII? I don't personally have FFIX on hand to check, but that's readily fixed by the internet. Just throwin' that out there. :o --RahanAkero 19:20, 27 July 2010 (EDT)

It's possible, but I'd need a better program for viewing PSX files than the one I have, which is old, awkward to use, and due to its "free trial" period having expired like a decade ago, it won't let me *extract* the files. Plus FF9 has like 2000+ TIM files... Anyone know of a good PSX file viewer? -YK YK-sig.png 19:52, 27 July 2010 (EDT)
Maybe TIM Viewer? That's what I used when I was messing with PSX games. --Xk-sig.png Xkeeper (talk) 20:08, 27 July 2010 (EDT)
Hmm. That program works, and is easy to use, but it still only lets me view/extract one TIM file at a time... if I could extract the whole lot of the things at once, I could easily batch-convert them to BMP and then browse them as thumbnails, which would make searching ~2000 files for one graphic (which unfortunately may not even *be* there) much, much easier... Still, I was able to use it to rip better versions of the unused SaGa Frontier RegionMap text images... -YK YK-sig.png 02:23, 28 July 2010 (EDT)

Incorrectly animated animation

Have you not played a Metroid game before? :P Geega's animations aren't like that. The first three frames make the "flying up" animation, which go 1 2 3 2 Then the three after that are the "attacking" animation, which ALSO go 1 2 3 2

Since you animated it, you get to fix it! Thanks :) --Techokami 18:39, 27 September 2010 (EDT)

Shoot. Yeah, I've played Metroid games... but I figured those things were in the correct order. Bah. Oh well, I'll fix it later. =P -YK YK-sig.png 18:40, 27 September 2010 (EDT)
And in your current aniGIF, one of the frames looses a pixel. It's noticable, and gives me a nervous tic whenever I see it. Gaaargh --Techokami 18:44, 27 September 2010 (EDT)
That... well, either it was like that in the file you uploaded, or my image program thought whatever that pixel was... was the same color as the background. Argh. Well, it'll also get fixed when I re-do the animation. -YK YK-sig.png 18:45, 27 September 2010 (EDT)
All right. Sprite broken down into two animations, animated much more smoothly, and with that pixel fixed. Is this better? =P -YK YK-sig.png 19:04, 27 September 2010 (EDT)
Much nicer. Also, you keep changing things in my watch list to have red, negative numbers! :( --Don't try pressing it, now. Techokami (talk) 18:41, 30 September 2010 (EDT)

Animated PNGs

I dunno how GoldS does it, but Japng seems to be a pretty good program for making APNGs. It supports transparent PNGs too, unlike another one I tested out. --Rabidabid 15:43, 3 October 2010 (EDT)

TLOZ:LA

What's up with deleting my revision? Deleting information is clearly not a good edit and therefore I undid it. Check the facts next time. --Tauwasser 04:40, 9 February 2011 (EST)

No, *you* need to check the facts. He "deleted" that information because it *wasn't true*, and should have been fixed *long* ago. There is no way to get the Tanaka song to play in any English release of Link's Awakening; certainly not via the "ZELDA" code, which, in the DX version, has the exact same effect as it does in the original: It plays a remix of the main theme. -YK YK-sig.png 04:58, 9 February 2011 (EST)
Then maybe he should have stated that. Look at the diff and it's not obvious that he "corrected [a] previous information-destroying edit", simply because he changed the facts. He should have said so. --Tauwasser 07:10, 9 February 2011 (EST)
[[1]] was the information-destroying edit I was correcting. See how the language cleanup altered the meaning? Next time, when a section says to refer to another section for clarification, please do so before editing. Or trust that people who claim to be _correcting_ information are actually correcting it. --Boco 09:12, 9 February 2011 (EST)
Tauwasser's modus operandi is "douche first, douche later". Don't let it get to you. --Xk-sig.png Xkeeper (talk) 09:54, 9 February 2011 (EST)

Reverting

Why were my edits reverted on Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy V? They were not harmful or took any info away, and in fact were just cleanup work (breaking up long paragraphs, added punctuation, etc.) for ease of reading. If I have done something wrong, I apologize. -WarioBarker 00:56, 27 February 2011 (EST)

There was nothing bad about them, per se, but they didn't improve the articles, either. They were just re-words for the sake of re-words, it seemed. I should've used a summary rather than a straight rollback, but... yeah. Also, you don't need to remove the game names from the intro; we like them there. -YK YK-sig.png 01:46, 28 February 2011 (EST)
Point taken on the "names-in-the-intro" thing. Also, there are ways to improve an article without actually adding anything, and that was generally what I was doing. -WarioBarker 02:10, 28 February 2011 (EST)
You've made many legit edits, and I'm glad to see some new faces working hard around here. But just because an edit *can* be made doesn't mean it *needs* to be, either. Generally, unless it's for clarity, you don't need to re-word something. We're not Wikipedia here. =P -YK YK-sig.png 02:12, 28 February 2011 (EST)
My opinions: Fixing weird grammar and punctuation (especially on pages written by people whose first language isn't English) or slight rewording purely for clarity is OK; rewriting articles to meet Wikipedia standards (God forbid) or to fit your own personal style is not. We also don't need history lessons in the article headers; all that stuff you put in the Wheel of Fortune article about "the show's true history" was completely unnecessary. People can go to "the other wiki" for that stuff if they're so inclined. --BMF54123 02:15, 28 February 2011 (EST)
That's what I was doing; not the "meet Wikipedia standards/personal style" thing, but for clarity and to fix formatting errors (I notice many pages using the "__TOC__" and "{{Clear}}" headers before the body of each article for that exact reason), so I apologize if I have done anything wrong (including the Wheel of Fortune thing, which I admit was really stupid of me). I guess what I'm saying is...how do we move from here? -WarioBarker 02:23, 28 February 2011 (EST)
The __TOC__ and {{clear}} things are there on pages with shorter tables of contents so the first part of the page doesn't "bleed" into the {{bob}} template. They're not necessary on larger pages, though, and so can be safely removed. As for how to "move on", well, what's done is done. There's no sense in dwelling on it. -YK YK-sig.png 02:26, 28 February 2011 (EST)

Just a small tip. You don't need to put an extra space after {{clear}}. It kind of creates this awkward empty gap between the things you're clearing. So for example, instead of doing this:

__TOC__
{{clear}}

==Content==

Try doing this:

__TOC__
{{clear}}
==Content==

It's certainly nothing major, it just helps the pages look a little bit tighter and neater looking. Happy editing! --Rabidabid 12:46, 28 February 2011 (EST)

I apologize for uploading the Zelda II-Goddess Statue.png in the wrong resolution again, don't know what I was thinking, I really should be more careful when editing, but I am confused about the palette not being accurate though, isn't Nestopia's default NTSC palette the way to go if you want the most accurate colors? I noticed that the palette is varying quite much between pics on the Zelda II wiki page. -Ganon 13:10, 7 Dec 2011 (CET)

We haven't settled on a standard palette because the NES doesn't really have one. Every emulator in existence seems to use its own set of (usually terrible) colors. I suppose "Nestopia NTSC, default settings" might be the best option, though someone would inevitably complain that it doesn't match the 1983 Zenith CRT they grew up with. Sigh. --BMF54123 14:31, 7 December 2011 (EST)

Oh, I see. Yeah, it's unfortunate that the palette differ so much between emulators, for example, I've seen many sources on the net that list the colors being slightly different on the sprite of Link in Zelda II between the JPN and US versions, when it's really just because the screencaps were taken from different emulators. But I guess this only becomes a problem when several people editing the same page. Anyway, I have tons of info and screenshots (in the correct resolution this time) that I could add to the Zelda II page but I am now unsure how I am going to proceed. Great site you guys have here btw. :) -Ganon 21:30, 7 Dec 2011 (CET)

AKA formatting

can you please make AKA line in BOB little more italic by default so could probably stop WarioBarker from putting apostrophe all the way lol i'm really tired reverting that back ;)--Cah4e3 05:14, 11 March 2011 (EST)


Blocking Spambots

Umass Wiki has a link to a plugin for captchas on MediaWiki. They have a few other suggestions for blocking spambots too. Hope this helps! --Fry's Dead Dog (I will wait for you) 23:21, 31 March 2011 (EDT)

"Prototype" word

I'm really sure I don't need to say this, but... You do know that the Greek letters assigned to development stages are not arbitrary, right? [2] I'll just assume that you meant that we don't know for sure what comes before and after the prototype described. {EspyoT} 10:29, 3 April 2011 (EDT)

Italicization

[3] [4] Are we going to have a sloppy, unorganized and ugly wiki, or the exact opposite? {EspyoT} 19:54, 28 April 2011 (EDT)

Why are you quoting Wikipedia? We're not Wikipedia. We don't use Wikipedia rules. -- Prince Kassad 19:57, 28 April 2011 (EDT)
As the good prince said. Just because this is a wiki does not mean we are obligated to follow Wikipedia's standards. -YK YK-sig.png 20:00, 28 April 2011 (EDT)
True. However, just because my neighbor's not me, doesn't mean I should stop eating (could've found a better metaphor). But really, if we're going to have game names unitalicized on purpose, please say so, so that I may stop italicizing them. Or should we start italicizing them, to make the wiki look better? {EspyoT} 07:29, 29 April 2011 (EDT)
We're not going to. Seriously, it just bugs me how many people figure that every wiki needs to follow Wikipedia's standards to the letter... -YK YK-sig.png 15:09, 29 April 2011 (EDT)
Agreed. Wikipedia has really soiled how wikis are handled. Every idiot tries to emulate them to look "professional" or w/e to look good, but it just makes every wiki look like a souless copy of Wikipedia. Teflon 15:39, 29 April 2011 (EDT)
Ok, I understand. And please, let's not throw names in the air, Teflon. Well, should we maybe add this to the formatting guidelines? {EspyoT} 19:32, 29 April 2011 (EDT)

Two items for deletion

I would like to request the deletion of Image0122.png (an image for Eternal Champions: Challenge From the Dark Side which has been superseded by one with a proper name) and the main page of Shadow Warrior (as I had moved its info, which only pertained to the prototype, to a properly-named page and removed the redirect; the main page no longer serves any purpose).

If this is the improper form of requesting, I apologize. -WarioBarker 03:47, 23 July 2011 (EDT)

Done and done. Just stick a {{delete}} on unnecessary images/pages in the future, though; we'll get to them eventually. -YK YK-sig.png 14:33, 23 July 2011 (EDT)

Zelda Wind Waker Thing

That Zelda Wind Waker thing under the music I have put was commenting about the music. It's really for sure. I apologize for my English, but I can give you a tip. The music is from Zelda Link to The Past.

Image Alignment and Organization

Sorry about the annoyance, I'm just trying to make the wiki look a little more organized and consistent in regards to image placement etc.

Is there some sort of "best practice" as to when images shouldn't be shoved out of the way of the text? TheKins 23:55, 8 October 2011 (EDT)

There aren't any hard and fast rules, really. The way I align images, personally, is basically by importance of the screenshot. If it's displaying something front and center (such as an unused area or other major feature), I align it to the left. If it's just a supplementary screenshot, however (such as one showing off unused items in the inventory, or showing what a debug menu looks like), I align it to the right. -YK YK-sig.png 00:02, 9 October 2011 (EDT)
Honestly, as long as an image's placement looks okay and doesn't break things, I don't care what side it's on, or how text flows around it, or what have you. I kinda like having variety in our articles anyway; making them all follow the same strict template is stupid and boring. --BMF54123 00:09, 9 October 2011 (EDT)

Breath of Fire II Debug Mode

Hey, you gonna go into any detail on that? If not, shoot me a quick e-mail or PM or what have you with the method to access it and I'll do it. I know some places that are interested in hearing about this little tidbit. -- Rick 23:34, 18 October 2011 (EDT)

...you know, I don't actually remember how I accessed it. It was probably a Game Genie/PAR code, but I can't remember offhand... and I lost the save with it when my hard drive crashed, which is why I never did anything further with that part of the page. If you can find a way to access it (if it *was* a code, it shouldn't be hard to find it again; I'll look a bit later), you're more than welcome to do it. -YK YK-sig.png 18:28, 25 October 2011 (EDT)

Sorry.

I'm sorry 'bout the captions. I won't do it anymore. --Jumbods64 15:39, 27 December 2011 (EST)

Help

Do you know how to take a screenshot via Project64? I tried too see a "Screen capture" option as the manual says there is when I read on how to capture, but whereever I look, I just can't find one. My PC doesn't have a PrntScrn button as it is rather a Netbook. Thanks. Squirreldroid 18:46, 22 January 2012 (EST)

I'm not familiar with that emulator, so I'm afraid I can't help you there... sorry. -YK YK-sig.png 18:48, 22 January 2012 (EST)
You might want to look into this link, Squirreldroid. That said, Project64's internal screenshot function takes .jpegs, which are not recommended on this wiki, since they commonly have artifacts and the screenshots come out looking quite ugly. --From: divingkataetheweirdo 21:15, 22 January 2012 (EST)

captions

If you're not supposed to add captions to the images, why are there so many in most pages? Take the original Legend of Zelda article. Captions on every image. What exactly is policy on this, is it allowed or not? I did add other info, too, btw. Just happened to do so in separate edits. YourBuddyBill 20:20, 26 January 2012 (EST)

Captions are generally to be added only by those who actually add the images themselves. We've had problems with people editing *just* for the sake of adding/changing captions. See the Guidelines page (particularly this part) for our overall stance on them. -YK YK-sig.png 20:22, 26 January 2012 (EST)
I'm not planning on doing that, though frankly I'm pretty sure that most of that random humor wasn't added by the uploaders. EDIT: I keep forgetting to sign YourBuddyBill 20:27, 26 January 2012 (EST) Also, someone undid your undo. XD

Ok, ok, no captions it is. Although if that's the policy, shouldn't you be looking to make sure ALL those captions were added by the image uploaders? YourBuddyBill 20:33, 26 January 2012 (EST) (forgot sig again)

Question regarding "<console> games" categories

So I've just figured out why certain articles (the MW2 article for example) appear in some categories, but not others (the MW2 article is in the "PC games" category, but not the "Xbox 360 games" category). It's due to the "Bob" template and how it only accepts one input in the "system" field. So my question is this; Would it be "kosher" to go around to articles such as the MW2 article and manually add in the appropriate console categories? 404 User Not Found 15:58, 4 March 2012 (EST)

Spambots

Have you admins ever thought of setting up some form of "admin verification" system for new users, where an email is sent to one of you or another admin (or you could set up a new email that all admins here can access) whenever a new user creates an account, so that you can monitor who is signing up? This method might not be the best choice, due to the amount of spambots currently registering......but seeing as how new users have to complete a captcha, why not include some form of admin account verification, or maybe a random question system that adds a question to the signup form that the person has to properly answer to fully create an account? I know there's plenty of methods that can be set up here to stop the spambots. It's just a matter of finding the right one for this wiki. 404 User Not Found 15:42, 25 March 2012 (EDT)

You'd want to talk to Xkeeper about that sort of thing, since he's the one who does all the behind-the-scenes work. About all I can do is just delete their garbage pages and ban them. -YK YK-sig.png 15:44, 25 March 2012 (EDT)

I just realised after you deleted the Action Man series template that there are only about 8 games altogether all made by different companies and almost all on Pc so the Template was quite stupid. Sorry for wasting your time. --SamuelEarl666 07:37, 13 June 2012 (EDT)

It wasn't stupid. Just ill-timed. There's no need to feel bad about what you did; such a template is perfectly acceptable, provided there are pages for at least three such games on the wiki. As for your other point about them being by different developers, "Series" is kind of a misnomer with those templates at times, since in many cases, the only link is the same license or whatnot. -YK YK-sig.png 14:46, 13 June 2012 (EDT)

Why did you revert my edit to the Investigate template?

Why did you revert my edit to the Investigate template? It was to prevent the Cleanup templates category from being categorized as To investigate. --AttackedbyGlitch 14:42, 17 June 2012 (EDT)

It broke the template, apparently. Let me see - Andlabs 14:45, 17 June 2012 (EDT)
To elaborate... For starters, you broke the template. In addition, there's no code in there that would do what you even said, making the edit pointless anyhow. -YK YK-sig.png 14:47, 17 June 2012 (EDT)
Ah, wait. I see what you were trying to do. Your complete lack of edit summaries, however, leads to misunderstandings like this, however. If you're gonna mess with templates, it's imperative that you explain *what you're doing*. -YK YK-sig.png 14:51, 17 June 2012 (EDT)

Grammar Template

Is there some sort of template that can be put on a page to warn users of intentional bad grammer? You know something like:

Warning: This page may have some bad grammar due to how the text was written by the developers. or something similar to that?AK47Productions 18:23, 18 June 2012 (EDT)

No, but you can (and should) put a note at the top of the page explaining that the text was copied from the game, errors and all. I've done that for a few pages. -YK YK-sig.png 18:27, 18 June 2012 (EDT)

Good to know. Thanks.AK47Productions 18:29, 18 June 2012 (EDT)

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PlayStation)

"In fact, nothing you changed makes this page any better. You're just rewording for the sake of rewording."

How? I added a link to the GameShark page, removed an unnecessary "TOC" and "clear" (there are well more than four headers, and the TOC is long enough that the "clear" was unneeded), and basically made things flow better without removing any sort of information (such as "the Sega Saturn port of Symphony of the Night" -> "the Saturn version"). -WarioBarker 18:33, 26 June 2012 (EDT)

You reworded a lot of things for the sake of rewording them, not changing the meaning one bit, but rephrasing things differently. You've been doing this virtually your entire time here, and honestly by this point, it's *strongly* starting to come across as "let's see how far we can push YK and/or BMF while not technically breaking any rules". I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt, as I usually do, and assume you earnestly believe you're making things better... but you aren't. There is no inherent benefit in most of these random rewords; they merely sound different and often stilted. We are not Wikipedia, and things do not need to sound "encylopedic" or "official". Further, you seem to have this strange insistence on editing pages made by established members, as though you're trying to show them up or something. There are *so* many pages that could actually *use* your help, which we've mentioned to you several times already, yet you continue to re-invent the wheel. Oh, and when we tell you not to do something, that's not an open invitation to go and do the exact opposite. For instance, you don't need to add pointless TOCs to pages, but there's no reason to go around *removing* them, either. In addition, you seem to be hiding the fact that you're doing these rewrites behind benign edit summaries such as "adding/removing TOC". I don't know if you're doing this on purpose, but it certain *looks* like you are. -YK YK-sig.png 18:47, 26 June 2012 (EDT)
You have some good points, sir (and thanks for not using bold characters or exclamation points), but again you're trying to insinuate that I'm deliberately trying to push you or anyone else and edit pages "made by established members, as though you're trying to show them up or something." That has never been my intention, and I directly state on my user page that I apologize in advance if I screw anything up (and I try to fix my mistakes if I notice them). Further, whoever starts or edits a page shouldn't matter, so long as the content is legit (I've already mentioned this elsewhere).
Then again, the last time you accused me of exactly that thing, it was on my talk page and unbeknownst to me you argued with Inuyasha and got blocked by Xkeeper for three days...after which you posted this message on your user page stating you needed to leave the wiki "for a few weeks", only to revert it four days later because "I like this place too much." despite the fact your previous message said "I can make all the excuses I want, but the bottom line is the same" and when you reverted said edit you made an excuse. I've always respected the admins of this site, and I always will unless they do things that aren't worthy of respect; not staying true to your word, especially when your "few-week" departure was more or less publicly announced, is one of those things.
You've insisted for the longest time that I'm trying to show up established users and push the mods, when I'm not and never have on an intentional basis...and quite frankly, I'm starting to believe you didn't mean a word of the apology you had on your page (and I'm sure I'm not alone on that). Seriously, man...why don't you take your own advice? -WarioBarker 20:04, 26 June 2012 (EDT)
For fuck's sake you idiots I went through the trouble of making it so that WarioBarker's edits weren't reported in IRC so you'd all shut your fucking traps. Rewording for the sake of rewording? WHO GIVES A FUCKING FLYING SHIT ON WHEELS. IT'S A FUCKING WIKI. IT CAN BE EDITED. FUCK --Xk-sig.png Xkeeper (talk) 12:21, 27 June 2012 (EDT)
