If you don't mind me asking, why did you undo my edits to these pages? All I changed was it saying it takes place in liverpool to london, which is stated in JoJo6251 as where it is located. Skimming Chapter 1 and looking at JoJo6251 again I don't see any mention of Liverpool.
Had to do some minor fixes to the romaji you used for the chapter titles across the pages. 植物 doesn't have a long O in it and 鑑定人 ends in "nin" not "kon" (I know that at a quick look ni and ko look the same). Jsyk.
Also because I'm too lazy to open a new thread, I did a ton of updates to Template:Part 8 Volume in order to make everything appear correctly if there's no title or other information out about it yet other than the release date, because vol 15 was announced a few weeks ago but nothing's out other than the release date. So all these changes make it so everything looks decent and there's now a placeholder image that should allow people to upload the cover when it's out.
Any reason for the undo? The entire synopsis is grammatically incorrect and inconsistent. All synopses of flashbacks should be written in present-tense after they are fully established as flashbacks. Even disregarding that, there are some problems with the way it was written in past-tense.
The reason being that an event that happened in the past, is usually narrated in the past tense. Fuck historical present, we don't need to summarize Jojo's plot in a more confusing way than necessary. A flashback should be narrated in the past tense.
You can, however, correct which past tense is used for the flashback, if you're so grammatically inclined. English is not my native language so it's possible I make grammar mistakes.
General English grammar rules say so, but I didn't base my edits off that. If you look at this page, which also contains a flashback, it is written in present tense. I assumed that using another page on the wiki from the same part and containing a flashback would be valid enough precedent. So, should we either change the Ch. 49 page and all othe flashbacks that include the present tense, or undo my edit to keep in line with precedent. It's your call.
Why are you saying not to do such trivia on the Kaato page? There is no reason not to add it. I had added it previously and MetallicKaiser only removed it because at the time Hato's stand name was not confirmed. He said that we could add it once her Stand's name was confirmed, which it now is.
It's a falseful comparison between the characters. You want to see symbolism where there aren't and disregard the fact that Norisuke and Tsurugi too have King in their Stand name. Besides its junk trivia anyway.
I suggest you check the trivia policy of this wikia.
I do think it's a faulty comparison to a deck of cards since the "King" theme naming isn't exclusive to her children. If the 4 kids and only them had "King" in their names, your suggestion would have been likely a valid thing to point out, but it's not the case.
Allow me to preface this: I'm fully aware that I have no idea what stress mods must be under when managing a community, especially one as large as this one. That being said, I do believe that you could be a bit nicer/more patient when delivering comment(s) to people who either need correcting, or are doing something to garner attention. My personal viewpoint on the whole Ryulong debacle aside, I do believe that some of the dialogue that went down between you and him could have been worded slightly better on your part. For instance, when you said that you would revert his edit over the whole Kaato scarf/wallet/sunglasses being a reference to Lisa Lisa when he "had his back turned" was quite low in my opinion. Furthermore, the manner in which you deal with other offenders could be remedied slightly through a slight increase in the precision of critiscism given. Another minor instance, (and not the impetus for this post, I assure you) was when you stated my lack of edits on the later sections of DiU was sad. I fully understand that you had no idea what was going on in my personal life at the time, but still, you could definately have worded the post better, and more constructively. Now, please do not misconstrue this as a "Nabukun worst mod" post, because it isn't. What it is is a post consiting of personal feedback on how you could possibly improve your wording, and in doing so, demonstrate control over a situation better, and also set a better example for the community. Thank you for your time.
I assure you I'm under no kind of stress since I barely manage the community anyway.
But you're right, I wouldn't hurt that I be nicer to my fellow editors. If someone trusted me enough to make me a discussion mod, although I have a pretty bad record concerning discussion, I should live up to the responsibility.
I'll be a little more tactful from now on, thank you for addressing this issue of mine.
I assigned Nabu as a discussions moderator because he seems to understand the policies and my intentions most of the time, and his blunt nature is very helpful in getting those intentions across to some of the other users.
With that said, I do agree that he could practice some restriction. Can't recall which page it was, but that long rant in the comments, as well as the personal insults come to mind.
Could you please give formal warnings to Buddyroid and DlagonDlagon for disruption and trolling? I asked Eckilsax to do this in October after they came back, and he did say he would, but he never left them proper warnings for their trolling. They're now back (as usual) because I'm talking to you guys on content issues and this post and a response to me asking why Eckilsax never warned them are just getting annoying. I know we haven't seen eye to eye on things, but I'm actually trying to improve the site and these two guys are only here to hassle me so they can screencap or link to their asshole friends about it.
