Could you look into possibly getting the Michael Myers and Walter White articles taken down? The Myers page just points out extremely plain view observations that are pretty much sherlocked or desperately reaching for imaginary clues to back their claim. And the Walter White one isn't even a myth but more of a "dress-up" list based on one uses in-game cosplay and the pretty much obvious Breaking Bad 1986 Fleetwood Bounder aka the Camper. But yeah, these articles ironically spawned right after you posted the new Sherlock policy. Just stating my concern. kthx
I created both pages and I appreciate your honesty. I agree with what you said about the Walter White page having a "dress-up list". But, the Myers page wasn't sherlocked nor backed up with imaginary clues. The thing I did with it was make connections between the Halloween movies and Grand Theft Auto V. Since I had already seen many of the films, it was easy for me to know what I was dealing with. Besides, even if someone did back up the page with imaginary clues, wouldn't you think the page already would have been taken down?
He doesn't exist. The reason I'm not bringing up the Shining page is because that page mentions the fact that the jackets are explicitly called "Overlook"s and made available for Trevor because he was partially inspired by Jack Nicholson and his performance in the film. Something like pointing out Pumpkins being a solid clue would mean that any of the other farms in Blaine County are also directly connected to Halloween. I know you have good intentions but I've seen the house. They're not similar at all. They just have the same architecture. The porch of the house by Mt. Gordo isn't a full porch with a centered door like the Halloween house. Also, the Gordo house is L-shaped and the Halloween house is a cube shape and doesn't feature a triangular roof face. I could go on all day about structural designs but you get my point right? It's too broad of a comparison. Also if pumpkins and old town houses were big enough clues, then it could be said that the house was based on the one from Trick-or-Treat (a pretty obscure horror film).
I'm getting real sick of this. You and Boomer are making up your own clique where you block users who disagree with you, and make up all these dumb policies that just reflect what you want. There are 6 other staff members, we deserve a say in how this wiki's run.
I'm not getting into this with you - Your outbursts have become very disruptive to this wiki and it's beyond unprofessional. You want to make unilateral decisions by yourself and then have vaultboy run with your ideas. Making outlandish claims about me and Boomer is a outright slap in the face and only makes you look bad.
This wiki isn't all about what you want, when you want it, and how you want it. You know how the rules work, so don't cry about it.
Well Ragequit will remain UotM until the end of August since this month was cut short. Those two users sound good. I neeed a little more time to see who stands out next month but I wouldn't be suprised if Ragequit returns for a second month.
So I figured out how to view themes on Wikia, and ours hasn't been working lately. Why? Because it's too dark. Look at this example, where I put a lighter default background over fully transparent black:
If we want to fix it, we just need to make the theme lighter.
Well when I originally uploaded the background I noticed how the Bigfoot was hard to see so I adjusted the transparency levels and there still was no difference. I'm fine with the way it looks but if you need the bigfoot the background image will have to be fixed then uploaded again.
Boomer8 blocked User:Myth hunter for "pointsgaming" even though he added GTA San Andreas Myths, and GTA Wiki Info, two established categories, to articles. He also blocked User:TheAverageAnarchist for Incivility, which was good except for one thing - he blocked for too long and TAA should of just recieved a warning before the block.
Myth Hunter has been warned numerous times about pointsgaming so I'm not suprised to hear he is now blocked for it. I have looked over Myth Hunter's edit history and found that 1) he usually edits a single page multiple times, 2) he adds the easter egg category to pages that are clearly not easter eggs, 3) he added GTA San Andreas Myths category to articles that all ready have the Myths and Legends in GTA San Andreas category, 4) he add the GTA Wiki info category that don't contain GTA Wiki content.
In light of all the edits Boomer had to revert I understand his frustration. The AvengeAnarchist should 100% be blocked after the verbal attack on Boomer. Saying Boomer is basically bullying Myth Hunter because he is not in the top ten on the leaderboard is ridiculous and unfounded.
Civility is one of the main rules on this wiki and the AvengeAnarchist clearly crossed that line.
I think every UotM should have a theme. For example, how about 'Best Debunker,' where we could have TheAverageAnarchist and The_Funktasm, as they are the most profound skeptics on the wiki, or the best New User, i.e and account less than 3 months old, for example, Theoriginal66.
I think we should have each users' achievements stand on their own. There really is no need to inject more conditions on being nominated for UotM, we should just look at what users stand out the most which would include established users as well as new users. Otherwise it really wouldn't be THE user of the month.
I completely agree with you. Ragequit is a special circumstance though because the guy is active practically everyday and makes good, quality edits. Users like Boomer who don't have as many edits are still vital to the community. Boomer I has grown tremendously as an editor and is one of the best writers on the wiki. This month is kind of a toss up since we were only judging a week versus a whole month. I definitely believe that new users and senior editors will shine in the UofM system we just have to work out the kinks first.
