Well i have some ideas i wanted to make into some blogs..But i think they are not worthy. So i'm putting them in to one. I also believe i owe an apology to some users, but well get to that.
As i looked through the special pages, i saw Special:Deadendpages and Special:LonelyPages. Dead-end pages mean they don't link to anywhere and Lonely pages aren't linked to. So i see it as this: More people need to look through these so that every page is linked to somewhere, or as i like to call it: "Endless linking".
Coded user pages
This is one of those fads everyone seems to be getting to; but does it really impress people? My user page has always been in wikia text, and always will be. Do we really need to show-off the power of coding? Some people will attempt at imitating other user pages; and will end up like this: User blog:SilverPlays97/CODING (wj4). I also think it might scare off a user; thinking that this wiki-editing thing is to complicated. I can't stop a fad, but i can state my opinion on it.
I made a blog a while back, User blog:SilverPlays97/The SNN Social pyramid, that said i saw user rights as a "social pyramid". Now, i see it as ranks. Like in the army, every rank has equal rights, but one with a higher rank has more abilities. I have made a Flow-Chart that shows the ways users can get user rights: The longest, Rollback -> chat-mod -> admin -> bureaucrat, is the most ideal because it shows you have experience in every field of the wiki; which can get you more support.
I see allot more often nominations being closed within 2 weeks and site-discussions going on for one week, and people that look like they are editing faster than they can type! Why the rush? Some things take time. If you close a discussion early you might lose the chance of a user with great influence to say their thoughts. It takes away ideas. Their are allot of users out their who do "lightning editing", which is editing pages at a very fast rate (like 10 pages per minute). I see this as intimidating and annoying. I take time on my projects. We are a wiki, not a high-school essay that is due tomorrow.
- To my fellow users:
I have to clarify some things. When le gave me a cleaned-up version of spyro's demotion, he said this:
"I must also inform you that this whole business is making me extremely nervous. My relationship with Spyro has never been a strong one; at one point, he considered opposing my Rollback nomination (thankfully he never did) just because I said something on chat he disagreed with. If he finds out (which he will) that I was involved in this demotion, his opinion of me would plummet even further, and I would never live it down. I'm still obliged to help though."
I Should of known to pull out then. Now look what a mess i made! People are confused about the opposition of Solace. I made it so the ME and LE would be in support of spyro's demotion. I put down the 2nd number thinking le would put his sig down. I was shocked when he opposed. I did feel betrayed for a second, then i realized le was doing this for his own good.
Le solace is an amazing user who i give my utmost respect. I do not hate him for changing his mind. DO NOT hold this ageist him when he is nominated for another position.
- To SpyroSonic2000:
I think i rocked your world for a while. I now realize all those reasons i put to demote you where pathetic and could have been addressed user-to-user. I thought the only way i could get you to change was to set-up a demotion. I hope this does not get between us and solace. I hope this does not effect your reputation as a chat-mod. I dearly apoligise. I feel that i attacked you. I hope you don't feel the same way.
- To Le Solace:
I should have never asked for you to be apart in spyro's demotion. You must be extremely stressed-out about what people think about you. I really do hate myself for doing this to you. I hope you can forgive me for the terrible things that i may have put you through. You are my Ally and my friend, let's just forget about this and move on to bigger and better things on SNN.
