  • Hey Genesjs

    There is something I have been wondering lately. If a high-ranking user eventually decides to retire, then his rights are eventually revoked since he will no longer be able to make use of them. However, if a high-ranking user decides to return, then would it really be necessary for him to go through all those procedures with voting at the discussions and proving his worth to re-earn his rights? I mean, if such a user has done nothing to discredit himself and only lost his rights because he decided to take a leave of absence, then it would mean his skills and reputation are the same as when he got his original rights, meaning those procedures he would have to go through would be meaningless.

    In short, I am wondering if a returning user can get his rights back if he just lost them due to retirement or a prolonged absence. I am just wondering that for myself; there will surely come a time where I wont have as much time as I have now with SNN, and I would most likely loose my rights. I would thus hate to start over in chase I find the time to return, yet be restricted by the rights as a regular user when I know I skill have the qualities that made me a b-krat.

    What do you think?

      Done. I doubt there'd be any real complaints from anyone here, but in case there are some objections to your User rights being restored we can always have a Discussion about it, as you've suggested. Normally I'd sit and wait a while on an issue like this and watch how a User performs before I consider restoring their former User rights, but given the short time frame in which you were gone before you came back in this case I'm willing to make an exception. In any case, welcome back Blue.

      Thanks, my man.

  • Could you please contact User:Time Biter about his rollback right? Because it has been four months since he has made an edit, and in accordance to our special rights policy, we must message him first before his rights are lapsed (in case he does not respond to the message). And since you are a bureaucrat, you are the best one to ask for this.

  • Hello, Gen. I want to apologize for my brash and unacceptable behavior on Journalistic's demotion thread. It was extremely uncalled for and I want to apologize for being rude to you and, dare I say, harassing you, on there as well as on your message wall. I hope you can sincerely forgive me for this manner, I should be more mature about situations like this.

    • And I want to apologize to you for losing my temper with you too quickly. I won't make any excuses, since it won't change the fact that I should've worked harder to keep my emotions under control when I was replying to you, just as I should've done with several other people on that thread as well. Upon sitting on everything for a few days, in retrospect I can admit that there were flaws/mistakes in how I conducted myself throughout this whole affair, and I plan to address these problems to the best of my ability. I hope that you can also forgive me for being so quick to treat you as harshly as I have done in that thread.

      P.S.: I actually saw this message you left me last night, along with the one you left on that forum thread. The only reason I didn't reply to either one is because, for some reason, I couldn't. On both this thread and the other one, when I tried to leave replies to them my messages vanished into the void, and since it was already very late for me by the time I discovered these things I felt that I just didn't have the time to try replying to them again. If I wasn't experiencing these weird technical issues, you would've seen me reply to you sooner.

      P.S.S.: Oh, and Happy Birthday, if you don't mind my saying so. Going by this little tidbit you wrote on your Userpage, "It was October 17th, 2011: a young, thirteen year-old boy browsed the Internet to research the latest Sonic the Hedgehog video game, Sonic Generations. [...]", and given the current date, I'm assuming that you're... 19 years old now?

      I'm sorry, but I just can't do it tonight (if they're still there). It's just way too late for me, and I've spent far too much time on that forum. They're going to have to discuss whatever they'd like to discuss with me another time.

      Are you going to keep mocking me even outside of that forum? If so, then I can ignore you everywhere else, too.

      So Modren, who wanted to speak with me in Discord anyway? And by issue, are you referring to the one in that thread? And why can't they talk to me here, why Discord?

  • Hey Genesjs, I wanna apologize for getting off topic the other day. I wasn't intending on dragging it that far. Just want to let you know I'll try harder to stay on topic. Thanks for reminding me about what we were supposed to be discussing. Happy Easter!

      As in regards to the Discussion, I have been thinking about what Journalistic said about it inevitably replacing forums. Personally, I would just get this over and done if is going to happen, regardless. In such a case, I assume the community will make a transition like when we switched from talk pages to message boards. It was sudden, but we managed to make it work, and now we're better off for it.

      Indeed.

      I wish we had more time to think this whole thing over, but we seem pressed for time. And I'd also normally be insisting that we get as much input on this as quickly as possible, but again, we seem limited on time, so if we're going to make a decision on what we're gonna do with everything then I suggest we get a consensus between the core Admins ASAP if you feel we haven't finished doing so already. To be honest, after seeing some people point out some of the issues that the Discussions feature has, I think I was right to feel hesitant in readily adopting the feature, even despite my support over having it eventually implemented. One example that comes to the top of my mind is an apparent lack of organization for threads of various topics. I don't like seeing such stuff being mixed together and becoming a God-awful, jumbled mess over time, and until (if) they address this issue and give Wikis a way to categorize and filter out the forums when searching for specific threads we're gonna have to get a little creative and use the titles of the threads themselves or something if we want to be able to find anything as quickly as possible.

      This isn't an ideal situation to me, but for now I recommend that you go ahead and just use whatever consensus that you, me and the rest of the core Admins make on everything and report our decision(s) back to Orko2814. We can deal with whatever comes after later. So, to reiterate my thoughts on everything in a more concise manner, with a couple additional things added:

      1) I vote we go ahead and see about having our Wiki getting a potential "spiffing". As you've just said, if the majority of us don't end up liking what is changed for whatever reason, we can always revert everything back without any trouble. Whatever we decide to do with appearances in the end, I think that, if nothing else, we should take up Orko2814/the Fandom's Community Development Team's offer to see about promoting our Wiki since there will be two major Sonic games coming out in the near future.

      2) I think that the idea behind the Discussions feature is neat and that, despite my hesitation to implement it in it's current state, we should go ahead and have this feature enabled, since it's going to eventually replace our Forums anyway and it'll probably be better to get everyone on board with the new feature ASAP instead of having it suddenly forced on us at a later date. Besides, I'm sure Fandom is listening to feedback that people are giving about the Discussions feature, so if we have some problems with it we can always consider trying to give feedback of our own to their development team so they can use it to try and resolve any problems the feature has sooner rather than later. In the meantime, we can try to deal with the feature's shortcomings the best we can and hope we can manage everything in a way that won't make things too frustrating for everyone.

      3) Since we already have a Mobile App, I don't think anything else really needs to be said about it.

  • In response to this, I can say we have been given green-light for a re-used concept. However, I have no idea how to set and reuse an old motif, so could you maybe handle this?

  • Hello Gen. It's come to my attention that you are almost proceeding to enter four months without editing the wiki. As this wiki's rules go, if a user with user rights does not edit for four months or longer they will be demoted. However, a warning is sent out, hence this message. If you don't respond within two weeks you will be demoted. Thanks for your cooperation!
