  • I saw the changes you made to the various pages I worked on. I wanted to apologise for adding the pages to the wrong categories. I'll make sure to not add future pages to the wrong categories again.

    • No worries! For the most part just try to keep to the nested categories that are more specific to when a location/country/character appears :)

  • Hi Mechemik, what's with the changes to the categories I've edited?

    • Again, I mean no disrespect.

      But the reason I am editing categories (only to have all my edits be undone) is precisely to prepare in advance the foundation of this wiki and improve its organization. In your post above, you have directly skirted my point addressing why these issues are not "non-issues" and instead do not respond to my points with any meaningful suggestions or counter-arguments as to why they are "non-issues" other than "they are non-issues."

      Frankly speaking, I'm not going to make more hours-long edits to this wiki if the basic structure of the wiki itself is unorganized; and all my well-thought out suggestions are, frankly, not listened to and not even addressed beyond "they're non-issues." If you want to see more edits to this wiki, perhaps you should start editing more like I have done. I am not some "work horse" that will do all the work while you go away for weeks at a time and tell me my suggestions for improving the wiki are "non-issues." Frankly speaking, I'm a bit insulted that your responses to my posts are apparently unimportant enough that you do not even bother to use correct grammar, spelling, and sentence structure in your responses.

      Also, I am surprised my America page edit is up to the standards that are here, especially since the page dealing with "standards" barely mentions any at all. But then again, I suppose this in itself is another "non-issue" that I have attempted to bring to your attention.

      Unless you decide to respond to my posts with actual, clear counter-arguments that debate my points instead of dismissing them outright: do not expect me to spend any more time improving this wiki. I have a life and this is volunteer work as you have pointed out, and frankly I'm not going to volunteer my time only to have my concerns be dismissed by an admin who is barely online and doesn't bother to proofread his responses to me.

      - I wish you the best of luck in the future of this wiki,

      - Director Boots.

    • I Have to be honest here, i get that you are passionate about this subject, but i think you need to take a step back and look at what this is. Its a fan wiki, where fans edit content about a subject, and you seem to be taking this a bit more seriously than it needs to be. I Am not saying this is unimportant, but you seem to be very worked up over a small thing. As we both said, this is just a volunteer thing, and we all have lives outside of this. It just needs some perspective. 

      I Think that i have addressed your issues perfectly clear, and i am not skirting the issues, because in reality these are not issues you need to be concerned with. Categories are a very straightforward thing, and do not need to be obsessed over or debated in such a fashion. Mechemik is absolutly right in his responces to you, and i would heed his advice as a content team member. I Get that you want to be prepared for the onslaught of information from the game but i do not feel like your concerns raised would impact editing and content creation down the line.

      The whole non-issue thing, is exactly what i mean. You have created these issues where i do not feel like they existed in the past, and that they will have minimal impact in the future. Yes we need to prepare, but having "captains of lore" and "captains of gameplay" is not something we need to even think about at this time. You mentioned having a page with lore and no game info. This is a perfect example of a non-issue. A Page should blend naturally with lore and gameplay, and we shouldnt be dividing it up.

      As far as i am aware, the divide between gameplay and lore, the categories (though this is mostly aimed at Mechemik), communication and the formatting/style guide are the only issues that you have raised (please correct me if you feel i have missed something out). As i said before, the lore/gameplay thing is done and i feel like my responces should be sufficiant. Its not an issue if the page is long if the subject requires it. If the subject is fairly complex then divide them accordingly. We are on the same page in regards to the America/Government articles.

      The style guide/formatting of content is something you have mentioned several times, yes it needs updating, and as i said, let me know specific areas that need to be added/changed. You mentioned you wanted standardization and formatting procedures, but have not really given any information on what that means. From my perspective, you want this to mean dividing pages up between lore, having proper categories etc. However i do not know if this is what you actually mean or not. 

      I do not want to belittle your edits, and like i said your America page is good, however i want more of that, and less of what we have been discussing. There are so many complex subjects that need a really indepth analysis, however we are arguing weather a page should be divided by lore etc. 

      Its not that i do not care about my spelling and whatnot, but this is just a chat page, where we all feel the need to overdiscuss things to the point where my responces are long and bloated. Sorry that i have not proofread a 500+ word essay to you, but rest assured that articles and chat pages are not the same in regards to the editing policies

    • Not that I'm aware of. That's up to each wiki's admins to decide if they wish to enable or not.

    • Should we add nationality to infobox even here? By now there are already Americans, Japanese, Haitians and Mexican (? Jackie).
