Hi Geth,

The file history says you uploaded File:Angel-Devil Shipping.jpg. The file itself is 404. Do you still have it, or know where to find it?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

I'll have to hunt it down again.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Thanks. I'll leave the file description page up for you, then.

Hi GethN7,

Just wanted to let you know that I've created a Discord for All The Tropes, with specific servers for different things. It's unofficial, however. If I have your permission, I'll put the invite link in the talk page.

- TheNothingness

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Go ahead and send me the link. I have no objection to a Discord service for this site at all, but before I do anything further, I'd at least like to get a look at at what you created if for no other reason than curiosity.

TheNothingness (talkcontribs)

The Recap template is borked.

QuestionableSanity (talkcontribs)

When I used it, the {{ROOTPAGE}} part just wrote out the category tag as article text, instead of actually adding the category.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

The template should be fixed now, thanks for catching that.

QuestionableSanity (talkcontribs)

It also has the {{trope}} template instead of the {{work}} template.

And the {{work}} template appears to not be working correctly; when I insert it, it goes off the page.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Whoops, forgot that. Should have fixed the other bugs as well.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

((I deleted an active instance of the work template from QS's post because this thread was turning up as a work page without a trope list. I apologize if I stepped on any toes.))

Tycio (talkcontribs)

do you know how I can get AnimeBaths.Miraheze.Org to redirect to AnimeBaths.org like how AllTheTropes.Miraheze.Org redirects to AllTheTropes.Org?

Weedle is blocked anyway. MOD: While that may be the case, you don't get to decide whether to close a discussion on somebody else's Talk page. If GethN7 wants this closed, he'll close it himself.

A barnstar for you!

You did a better job than I did in keeping your temper under control throughout this recent mess. Thank you for staying neutral for as long as you did. Robkelk (talk) 20:44, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Someone is going unstable

<snort>

= "Someone is disagreeing with me more than I like, and I can't ban him to shut him up!"

DocColress (talkcontribs)

That's not what I was saying, you absolute judgmental and self-important nimrod.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

FACEPALM

There is point from civil disagreement to spazzing out because someone recommends a solution you don't like, and this is getting way past the reasonable end of that.

Doc: I'm no more a fan of burning a field down than you, but if the crop rot is gonna be that recurrent, I can see the logic in doing so, and I'll help port the field's wheat shoots to another wiki patch if I must, but if the prevailing opinion is to burn the field down, I'll buy the torches myself because majority rule is how things work here.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

You're missing the reason I sent you this - What LT was proposing is NOT the point here. The point was I had a concern that he was getting more emotionally unstable about this issue and it might reach the point where he'd lash out and try to delete stuff himself. Not to mention his disagreements were far from "civil" (don't make me laugh - did you READ all that he typed and the attitude he took?), and saying things like "evict the autistic wonks" not only is offensive to those of us WHO HAVE ASPERGER'S but suggest forcible eviction of anyone who wishes to do something that LT doesn't want to see being done. Which is like, y'know, TYRANNY.

Oh, but it's only tyranny when I do it, of course. Truly I am the only bad guy on this Wiki, the enemy of all users, and I deserve to be talked meanly to and lose all that I'd cherished so much on this Wiki. Silly me for thinking otherwise.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

Y'know what? Yeah, go burn that field down. All of you. I don't give a fuck anymore - I'll just be over on TV Tropes, where this trope is handled competently.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Doc, I've tried to be the reasonable one here from day one, and I still sympathize with your position even now, but I'm still bound by the same rules where we put it to a vote and go with the prevailing wind.

If you absolutely insist on flouncing, so be it, leave without any bitterness from me, it's your decision.

That said, I do want this drama to end myself, and I will sublimate my desires in order to achieve that if I must, so if you are flouncing for real, then consider my vote switched to the other side of this debate, I'd like to resume a less stressful operation of a troping website in the long run, and that requires we all make compromises, even ones we don't like.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

And you have been reasonable. The rules in this place might suck sometimes but you've always done your best with what you had, and you've always shown fairness and good judgment. I don't have a bad word to say about you.

I've been calming myself down now. Drinking some coffee certainly helped. ^^

No, I won't be flouncing. You can keep your position on this matter and don't have to switch your vote. Compromise is what I've been wishing for too, but it's hard to do when everyone is all "shoot down on sight" at anything I have to say. I made my own proposal on the Complete Monster talk page yesterday, but no one seemed to read it because I got no response. What do you think - should I re-open that proposal?

Mark D. Gordon (talkcontribs)

Flame Emperor Edelgard and WalrusGuy are the long-term vandal from the other wiki.

Him/her adding Ragyo's picture, wanting to remove Johan Liebert and adding the attempted baby-killer from Ice Age makes clear it's him/her again.

I'm suggesting to block them both as soon as possible.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Much obliged. Will do that.

Mark D. Gordon (talkcontribs)

Thank you.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

Valkerone as well, right? Of course, that account got blocked too, thankfully.

This user turning up here again has been my big fear in regards to the Complete Monster trope, so I hope I can be forgiven for getting a bit overprotective and defensive due to being Properly Paranoid about such things...

DocColress (talkcontribs)

I want to get the Complete Monster and Magnificent Bastard pages better organized, but there's a big factor in the way that worries me. Could you help me settle on what to do here?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

What were you wanting to do exactly?

DocColress (talkcontribs)

Basically help to organize and tidy up the pages' entry content and the discussion pages for them. The concerning factor is the user Weedle McHairybug, who has a history on both Villain's Wiki and All The Tropes Wikia of being very confrontational on matters edit warring with others, and saying very uncomfortable things concerning his own moral beliefs and religious dogma that spark theist debates. (Like, on Villain's Wiki he argued against Frollo being labeled a CM because supposedly his fear for his immortal soul that made him spare baby Quasimodo was a redeeming quality to him, and if you recall he'd edit warred with me over a ridiculously long Maleficent CM entry that he bogged down with unnecessary opinionated details and was reliant on information from an unofficial "sequel" children's book.) Already, he's been deleting entries I've tried adding or re-adding to pages, not only on the main pages but on the discussion pages as well. He's pretty much exactly the sort of user I've gotten accused of being and I really don't feel like I have the patience to deal with him again.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Go nuts.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

"Go nuts?" I'm not really sure what you mean or what that'd entail. ;:D

Derivative (talkcontribs)

translated = do what you want there

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Basically, you have broad leeway here. Use you best discretion and do what you feel best.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

Well, I'll see what I can do. I don't want to come down too hard, but if that user pushes things, I'll have little to no other choice.

Semi-related, but rather than changing Complete Monster on this wiki too much to the point of making single example pages for individual works (something I'm still very much opposed to), I think a better way to expand the trope would be to create subpages of it that the Wikia version has but this version doesn't.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Tell you what, you can port over pages the Wikia versions has that this one does not, just make sure no one has plagiarized material prior to doing so. That aside, what you want to do on Wikia seems to be eminently reasonable, so use your discretion there.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

I will try to be as thorough as I can. And thanks for letting me know - I intend to use discretion and try to be cautious and reasonable.

DocColress (talkcontribs)
GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Endorsed. Just tag me in there on contentious debates and I'll referee if need be, no need to bring it up here.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

Understood. And thanks. :)
