  • Hi Supermorff

    I have a question about an entry you made on 20th February 2008: http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/Babylon_Guardian?oldid=8049

    Where did you get the name "Angelus the Gatekeeper" from? He's not called that in the Japanese strategy guide and I can't find it anywhere in Youtube videos of the Japanese version of the game.

    • Hi IndigoPengi. I'm pretty sure that page was copied from somewhere else on the wiki, probably a list article that I was splitting up. (I should have said which page it came from. That's my bad.) That list article itself probably came from somewhere like Wikipedia. Over time, we've found a lot of the information we took from other sites to not be very reliable, so if you have gone back to the actual games and can't find the name, it's probably just wrong.

    • Thanks for the reply. Yeah, turns out it was wrong. It's now been corrected.

  • Do you remember me? I was that arrogant kid who used to cause more harm than good around here.

    Almost 10 years later, I understand how problematic I've been in the past, and the shame of that is a big part of why I don't stop by anymore.

    I'm not asking for forgiveness or respect or anything like that, but I did want to apologise for any and all trouble I caused.

    • Hi Sala. Yes, I remember you. I don't know if I'd say you caused more harm than good, but there was frustration in the past that is not now worth revisiting. Still, the fact that you have come here and apologised shows a level of emotional maturity that I do respect, so thank you. I hope you are well.

    • I appreciate it. Thank you. A lot has happened in these years, and so I'm glad you can help me to move on from this darker part of my life.

  • Hi Supermorff. I hope you are fine. While I was cleaning up some MediaWiki pages, I ran into this system message, which contains a list of images; some deleted and some still exist. But, the problem here is that I don't know what the system message was supposed to do exactly, and there is no documentation of it anywhere.

    It seems to me to do some blocking-related actions to photos, but it is not very clear what permission it blocks in files. So, since you were the only one who was editing it these years, I wonder if you could still explain its functionality to me.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Luma.dash,

      Yes, your instinct is right, it was for protection. To be honest, I don't remember exactly how it worked. It was either to prevent files with these names being created, or to prevent them being added to pages. We had a problem back then with image spamming, and this was a bit of a patch while we put other controls in place.

      I assume the software has updated since and it may not work as it used to. Even if it does, these particular filenames are probably not a problem any more.

      Keep up the good work!

    • I see... I may experiment with it later on my sandbox wiki to see the behaviour now. Regardless though, thanks for the help.

  • I was wondering if anyone on the Sonic Wiki has heard that Jon Burton is making an unofficial, Sonic 3D Blast, Director's Cut. Link: https://twitter.com/JonTt/status/918650620000731137/photo/1

  • I have nominated myself for bureaucrat rights. Perhaps you would be interested?

  • I just got this message from the Fandom's Community Development team. What do you think about it? What do you think should be accepted from them?

    • As you know, I'm not very active here any more, so any advice I give is general instead of specific to the current needs of SNN.

      That said, I think if the Community Development team are offering practical help for anything, whether that's making a new homepage or getting the wiki updated using new features, then you should accept the help and see what they come up with. For the homepage, nothing is stopping you from changing back if you don't like it. For the features, we'll have to switch over eventually anyway and it would be better to do it with help from the Development team instead of figuring it out ourselves.

  • Do you know if it has been stated in the comics that the Marxio Brothers each has "marxio" as their last name? Because if not, then Grouchio Marxio, Chicio Marxio and Harpio Marxio need to be renamed.

  • Hello, Supermorff. I am BlueSpeeder, an administrator on the wiki. Upon a recent site discussion, it was proposed that the current bureaucrats step down and be replaced with active users who will shortly become bureaucrats. As such, the proposal states that you must step down. I will give you a week to contact Wikia staff and have your rights removed. Failure to cooperate will lead to consequences. Thank you for your time!

      This message comes across as incredibly threatening and antagonistic. I don't think that was necessary. If you had wanted to be more civil, you could have worded it like this:

      "Hi Supermorff. I'm BlueSpeeder, an administrator here on SNN. You may be aware that there was a recent site discussion on this wiki, in which the SNN community agreed that current bureaucrats should step down and be replaced with more active users. As such, please use your existing bureaucrat privileges to relinquish those privileges. Thank you for your time!"

      Anyway, I've given up those privileges. All the best to you with the new council.

      Look, I'm aware I made a mistake, don't worry, community consensus is back in order. I'll give your rights back ASAP. Sorry, Morff.

    • It would help a lot if you voiced your opinion on the matter on http://sonic.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:416776

  • Hello Supermorff. A new thread has been opened regarding the stage theme articles, and since you were helping establish those articles, I think it would be a good idea that you at least gave your thoughts on the subject. I know I may be medling but I figured it would be a wise choice to include you.

    • No rule. In that particular case, the code tells me that he is using one of the WYSIWYG editors in the wiki. I would strongly recommend that he switch on the Source editor in preferences, at least for a little while, so that he can see what the markup code looks like. Then I'd hope it became clearer to him how to improve his edits. Using Source is incredibly helpful for improving wiki awareness and becoming a better editor.

    • I see. Thank you for the advise. I am afraid he has worn my patience down and now I am on the border of just being too rude towards him.
