What the hell is wrong with Dai-Guard?!

NoxiousSludge (talkcontribs)

I apologize for the swearing in the title, but seriously, what is up with that Dai-Guard bot? From what I notice it's a very efficient little bot that tends to handle formatting and cleanup rather well. But "Man Without a Body" seems to be a trigger word for it or something, because whenever he's listed as providing a dramatic reading for a fan fic, Dai-Guard loses it's shit and spams the name all over the page. Thirty H's is the second page I've seen it happen on, and I have no clue as to if there are any other pages it's done this to. If you're the wrong guy to ask I apologize, but is there any reason why that name makes it go apeshit?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

My bot is Gethbot, not Dai-Guard (that's Vorticity's). I will, however, make him aware Dai-Guard seems to be going rogue, so thanks for the report.

Hi GethN7, I currently use the username "Davey2010" across all Wikimedia Projects and via https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Stewards%27_noticeboard#Checkuser_Request I've found out my username is seemingly being used on most non-wikimedia wikis and I've since found out their french userpage includes my trademark blue and orange font so they're clearly impersonating me,

Was there any way I can gain control of the username ? (such as them being renamed to a random username and then me re-registering the username?,

As can be seen at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Davey2010 I have a brilliant track record and have never vandalised on any project since having the account (and never would) - Given this project and the Miraheze one both appear under "Davey2010" on Google quite rightfully anyone would assume the user is me when it obviously isn't,

Many thanks,

Dave

Davey2010WP (talkcontribs)

Apologies for the "test" etc - I've found out it wouldn't allow me to save the message with links, Thanks

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

I would suggest contacting Miraheze Staff with this and asking them to investigate the situation for you.

Davey2010WP (talkcontribs)

Hi GethN7 , Okie dokie will do, Many thanks, Dave

I didn't know you have your own wiki. This wiki is better than TVTropes, at least for getting in with my chromebook.

I've been banned on TVTropes. My handle is DerangedEscargot. The Mod who banned me was nombretomado. Can you get another mod to unban me. If not, is there someone else on this wiki that can?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

As I told you on the Wikia fork, NO, no one here can help you.

This conversation is over.

Sorry for disturbing you. I just need a hobby.

Summary by Mark D. Gordon

Closed thema.

Mark D. Gordon (talkcontribs)

I want now to talk about the entries of the other four candidates and non-candidates of Complete Monster in the:

After War Gundam X/YMMV.

At first, we don't define a character, because of his/her fate. And the Frost Brothers are perhaps punished even worse. (Life is a heavier punishment by Gundam standards similar to One Piece, but is not used that often.)

TV Tropes Complete Monster Cleanup After War Gundam X Seidel Rasso Fixx Bloodman

- Does Bloodman even qualify? On TV Tropes' cleanup he's said to be one of the rare more humane antagonists (despite his name and appearance of an ugly old man). And while he has bad crimes to his name, he completely pales when compared to the other four.

- I'd say Rasso should stay. He's one of the most despicable characters (even perhaps THE most despicable character) in this series.

- The Frost Brothers being mere Smug Snakes is not correct. They murdered their superiors and wanted to kill all Newtypes and also murdered the two guys above. Their disqualifying quality is, that they care about each other. They have a Freudian Excuse, but I'm not sure, if it mitigates their crimes somewhat.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Bloodman, possibly. After he heard D.O.M.E out, he was actually willing to reconsider his warlike ways.

Siedel Rasso, he was still unwilling to shake his own delusions even after hearing D.O.M.E out.

The Frost Brothers, I'd argue they got redeemed in the same sense Victory Gundam's Katejina Loos did: They were in a worse position than they started out in and had to live with that, so I'd argue they ultimately don't qualify, since while they did some horrible things, they did pay for those actions and got handed a punishment they are in no position to do anything about, with Shagia being crippled in the ending and Olba having to take full-time care of him, and it's rather strongly implied they finally decided to let their hatred drop in the ending.

From My Sandbox - Trope Pantheon

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

So, here's the template for the Trope Pantheon: User:Jade Shauni/sandbox I know it must go through some reworks and polishing before it gets posted, the reason why I didn't put it up yet in the Template box, it's because once the others see that TP is back, they'll go wild, because they didn't know about the rules that you see there. Plus, how do I put it up without the run wild part happening? I want to put the rules in the template, without ruining the posting. (Ignore the Cheagal Writing, that's a trope that needs working, so it won't get deleted by lack of examples)).

I think some of the rules should be expanded upon, it looks like the Other Trope Wiki got serious with who gets into the TP after things became too insane for them to handle, so, they posted some rules which minimize any future damage (I see this as a bit too late, but it puts less future work when new tropers come in with new gods). If I can't put the rules on the template, they should be in the actual TP page, like how the Other Trope Wiki does it. So, which rules are good for forking: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Pantheon/TropePantheons

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Cleaned it up some, but it otherwise works.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Okay, so we don't need anything from Tv Tropes' Trope Pantheon rules, we're good to go. Right? So, how do I make a template and where do I post the rules.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Check out existing templates to make sure you don't pick a name we already have for an existing template, then create a new one in Template namespace.

I also recommend using an existing template that already fits your needs as a base, copy the page contents over to your new template, then add the information you need to the modified template.

If possible, you should make this template an infobox similar to the site notices you occasionally see atop the site header.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Oh, I got lost, when I went to search templates, now I'm wondering how do I make a template/docs and can there be two/several gods for one trope or should the TP be about one god per trope? Also, should I add in the rules that the gods won't get rotated out, because when I logged out, I just realize that I should add more, before I put the template up.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Two things:

  1. Start a forum topic and solicit some advice from other people, it's clear this idea needs more work.
  2. If you don't know how to make a template, see Help:Templates
Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Thanks, I follow your advice and put it in a forum. I want to do this right, because if we don't seal off the holes, we'll end up like Tv Tropes.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)
GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Works for me.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Any ideas to make it unique, so it won't be too much of a "Trope Pantheon ripoff"?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Not really. As long as we keep the idiotic attempts at fanfiction to a minimum, that alone will make ours better than the one on TVT.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Hey, I'm trying to reverse engineer some of the pages that I started, including the Trope Workshop:Forgettable Character , and tweaking, fixing, and polishing them. So, how am I doing?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Better, doing better.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Do I get rid of the "Cleanup: Don't copy from TVT" tag or must I leave it there, until the page comes really clean?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Make sure it's completely sterile first.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

I wrote it from the ground up now, so that should get most of it, even though it needs a bit of cleaning.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Then when any questionable bits are gone, the message can leave as well.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

Okay, I removed the message. The only thing left is beware of some stupid grammar mistake/misspelling on my part and maybe the examples.

Jade Shauni (talkcontribs)

I started fixing the other one: Trope Workshop:Adapted Out

I rework it from the ground up, so it's in a similar state: questionable stuff removed, only grammar mistakes, typos, and other personal mistakes remains.
