[edit] Protected page

I would edit this, but unfortunately it is protected, if someone wants to open it up so I can make some alterations to the main page - that would be great!

Why is this page portected anyway? I have made a new mainpage, but it needs to be unlocked first. :@ Lykerok 17:10, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Why are you applieing this change of main page to all the wikis?! Before you change it, let some others know first! User:Benedict

No, I am no applying this to all wikis. One I either

  • Contribute to
  • Am staff for

I'm not going to randomly change the main page to any wiki I see anyway. ¬¬ Plus, the main page look way outdated. Lykerok 18:45, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Well the Blue is a bit bright. And the main page is unlocked. {{SUBST:User:Benedict/sig}} 19:20, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

The Main Page isn't unlocked and I couldn't give a **** if you think the Blue is too bright tbh. Lykerok 19:30, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Some change needs to happen Benedict and the sooner you realise that the better. I don't know why you're so against it but you really need to open your eyes some. The layout is great. Many people have agreed and I'm pretty sure you're the only one who's disagreed.

Wake up, please. Relmutsie AN 22:51, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

The main page is unlocked for me, I don't know why it isn't for you. The main page colors are perfect, I think. Before they were bright. Benedict 09:03, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Something Minor

I know this isn't reallt a big deal but on talk pages alot of failed mark-up has been seen such as {{SUBST:Benedict|Benedict}}. For all those that are unaware ~~~~ creates the folloing effect Lykerok 13:10, 10 July 2009 (UTC) so in future please use that so I don't get annoyed (XD) and it just tells us when you wrote he message. ;) Lykerok 13:11, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

That failed mark-up is due to Benedicts custom sig set from the Pikmin wiki ;) Nagare 13:18, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

I wil fix this. I didn't realise that sigs dont work cross wiki. Benedict

[edit] The GTFO Attitude

Unfortunately, I cannot post this in the planning thread, but I've noticed quite a bit of hate going both ways for the people contributing on this wiki.

First off, Benedict. Stop acting like you own the neowikis and have a supreme say in everything that goes on. The rest of the contributors have more say in the matter than you do. Additionaly, 4 of them agree against you, therefore, it is a majority rule, not just "oh I hate Benedict let me undo his shit". Not to mention, Relmutsie currently has four wiki staff tags, that shows he knows not only what he is doing but how stuff works and how to organize a team. Lykerok got his original tag before you did and thus has more experience. You should value their thoughts instead of immediately overriding them. You have no more say than they do and vice versa. BUT when more than one person agrees against you (and only yourself) you can't just do whatever the hell you feel like.

Working on a wiki alone is not the most fun thing to do but if you work as a team you follow the guidelines set by the majority of the team and if you don't, they have free reign to change what you have added because it is a collaborative effort. Right now you guys have about four contributors, which is good and could make this whole thing go a lot smoother.

To Relmutsie and Lykerok, you two, although friends, don't need to take stabs at Benedict for everything he does even if he tries to screw everything up majorly. Just make a public note of it and move on. For everything he undoes or messes up, undo it.

Again for Benedict, just because someone doesn't like what you are trying to do doesn't mean you should just say "GTFO and don't edit my shit". You need to understand the wiki is about more than just you. It is a team effort. Stop trying to be so damn controlling and let things work themselves out. Also, stop creating new pages needlessly. Utilize the search feature and do things from there. Several base pages have already been established but still need a lot of polishing which can easily be split amongst you guys.

Personally, you all need to stop being whiney little bitches and work together instead of against each other at every single turn of events. Telling someone to just leave the wiki isn't the best idea but if you continue fighting what everyone else is achieving Benedict, it will only hurt you in the future.

/rant? I'm not sure about /rant... More of a telling off if you ask me. But of course, you don't ask me. I'm fine with this, I'll try to cooperate a bit more from now on, k? Benedict 09:03, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Template:Spell

I created this template ages ago for the Spell pages, but then found out it cluttered the pages up a bit. Would you like me to make it like the Template:Cat on the Pokemon Wiki, subst:, or remove it entierly? Just thought I would mension it before someone comes along and blocks me from this wiki for creating templates as well. Benedict 09:03, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh pushy pushy. No because it's just another one of your useless templates. Happy now? Relmutsie AN 12:27, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Redirects

Why are so many being set up? Some of them are ridiculous. Finest example? Hogwarts School of Witchraft and Wizardry.

Don't focus on redirects; you should be focusing more on content. All I've seen recently is you guys setting up redirects, to which Benedict has obviously complained, and to be honest I (to an extent) agree with him. Create pages; not redirects. It's good practice. Relmutsie AN 09:12, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Hogwars School of Witchcraft and Wizardy is the correct name of the school. But the whole page was written under Hogwarts, so i redirected the correct name to it and gave it a custom title. To me it wasnt ridiculous, same as the Tom Riddle one, there isnt enough information on him alone to warrent a single page for himself, he is voldemort, just his past, and he only shows in the films/books in one film where he tried to over take ginny, so why does he get a whole page to himself? Its all fine you saying Dont Redirect, but some of them are needed, or useless pages will be created. An example will be some that Benedict has created in the Hufflepuff page, some of the students wont have enough information for a page, maybe a sentance or two, but they all have empty pages. That someone is gonna write a sentance in possible going along the lines of Fictional character in Harry Potter Universe then leave it at that. A lot of characters have just that in them. Simon1987 11:53, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

That's not even my point. Surely it would've made MUCH more sense to redirect Hogwarts to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? o_O Relmutsie AN 12:37, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Possibly would ahve been, but then your creating a new page, and porting the information over. Either way, it goes to the same page. Simon1987 14:07, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Its easy to sort out: just edit the page and remove the redirect. SOME pages should be redirected, as a stub is a stub and will be a stub. Benedict 15:16, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

I have switched around the Hogwarts pages, and im working on the main characters. Simon1987 15:35, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
