452's Message Wall Rule 1Edit

Do not continue discussions here which were started elsewhere.

If you wish to ask a question about something I have posted elsewhere, please ask there instead of starting a thread here. If you have a question, someone else might also, so the question being asked and answered in the original place benefits everyone.

I welcome questions about anything I have ever posted, regardless of how long ago it was posted, but only in the correct place.

This is the internet, time does not matter.

452's Message Wall Rule 2Edit

Do not contact me here about issues from other wikis.

If you're blocked with talk page editing revoked, then trying to continue the closed discussion elsewhere will only result in your block being extended.

452's Message Wall Rule 3Edit

Stay out of conversations which do not concern you.

If someone asks me a question, then it is for me to answer. If someone wanted an answer from you, they would ask on your Message Wall. If someone wanted an answer from anyone, they would ask on the Forum instead of a Message Wall.

  • Just so you know, I made a misspell...

    When I said "you just proclaimed that you are not blocking me due to my mistake.", I actually meant to say "you just proclaimed that you are not UNBLOCKING me due to my mistake.". So basically you just blocked me over a mistake I made yet again XD

    And if you need me to quote where you said that, you said "That's a rhetorical question, the answer is: No, that would be absurd.". So to be fair I think it was common sense that I made a misspelling considering I was referring about the possibility of you unblocking me.

    And btw, I wasn't making you out to be a liar in anyway, I was just thinking logically about all this by trying to give you some advice.

  • Hi 452. I sent you an email last week using the address that's connected with your Wikia account, and I just want to check in to see if you received it. Did you? Thanks!

      I found my extended reply, and now seems like a great time to post it.


      Before you commented on my wall, I was just going to ignore the email, as I am still a little offended by the fact that I was accused of "customization policy violations" for things I re-added under explicit permission from Wikia Staff. (Hilariously, when I was given the permission, I asked that it be posted publicly - I must have anticipated something was going to go wrong.)

      But since you seem to want a response, here it is:

      • I am not interested in joining Wikia Stars.
      • I am not interested in private emails from Wikia.
      • I am not interested in "talking to the media" for Wikia.
      • I am not interested in "going to events" to represent Wikia.
      • I am not interested in appearing in Wikia videos.
      • I am not interested in signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement with Wikia.
      • I am not interested in sharing personal information with Wikia.
      • I am not interested in learning about Wikia features and programs before the rest of the community.
      • I am not interested in talking to you over voice or video chat.

      To me, the "wiki spirit" is the fact that everyone is equal, and everything is public. I don't think cliques like Wikia Stars are in the wiki spirit - despite that this is apparently the norm on wikipedia.

      • I am not interested in you offering me anything which is not available to everyone.
        • I am rather insulted that you think I am the type of person who would want to join a clique.
      • The only "opportunity" I am interested in is fair and equal treatment.
        • If one wiki is given permission to do something, I expect that permission to apply to all wikis.
        • If one wiki is told they are not allowed to do something, I expect that to apply to all wikis also.

      The majority of the customisations I have made were inspired by customisations on other wikis, so to remove my customisations as "violations" while allowing them on other wikis does not make me feel like I'm being treated equally. Especially when my explanation that I did them because I saw them others wikis is ignored.

      This is pretty much what happened:

      Cop: "You were doing 5 over the limit!"
      Me: "I was doing 5 over the limit because everyone was doing 5 over the limit."
      Cop: "Stop policing other drivers!"

      It has never actually occurred to me to ask why I was being singled out, I just assume you don't like wikis with lots of customisation, and were just looking for something to nitpick that was actually against policy in some way. Similar to how a Cop might pull someone over for a minor offense just because.


      Your offer to give me the chance to ask any questions I have is an intriguing one, because I do like getting answers to questions, and I learned long ago that Staff don't like giving straight answers to any question, even when I'm painstakingly specific about the type of answer I'm looking for.

      For example, even when I have specifically indicated that I wanted a Yes/No answer, I've received a vague answer which uses neither of those words.

      You didn't indicate whether or not you wanted a yes or no in response to your email, but just in case I haven't been clear:

      • No.

  • Thanks for making those changes, I copied them over to my own diff.css file and attributed your global.css specific page revision that added it :)

  • Greetings, 452. ^^
    There are two of your scripts that I am interested in using on Doraemon Wiki, and I would like to ask for your permission for it. These scripts specifically are edit count level and tab link ones.
    My apologies for bothering you - I just would like to make sure that you are fine with them being used there before doing so. :)
    Thank you.

  • Greetings 452,

    I was looking at your global.js and noticed that you use a lot of personal scripts within the user namespace of your personal wiki. Quite a few of these are scripts that you've adapted (some might say perfected). My question is: if I find these scripts useful to my work on Wikia may I use them in my global.js as long as I give you attribution?

    I realize that this is asking a lot and these scripts are prone to edits without warning, possible bugs, and even the occasional error. However, I admire the work that you've done and saw it fit to ask if I may put them to personal use before acting.

    Thanks in advance!

      Thanks for asking. It's a nice change to have someone say "May I have your permission to do this", rather than the usual: people demanding I tell them how to do something.

      Go for it. :)

      I hadn't realised you meant (almost) all of them.

      I've updated the location of some of the scripts, please make the same changes in your global js. :)

    • I apologize I didn't make it clear, I will make the changes.

      Edit: Finished! :)

  • Hello, 452. 

    I would like to apologise for my recent behavior. I set off on the wrong foot with you back in 2015, due to my stupidity to not notice the copyright measures put in place for the gallery template for the Saints Row wiki. Escalating from this, my recent chat join was merely an attempt to say hi, which quickly, and understandably backfired. I regret joining and should have apologised months ago. I hope that we can make amends in one way or another.  I don't expect you to accept my apology, as I understand my actions have had the domino affect, and as a result,  I was blocked. I never realised that I was fully non-permitted from the chat,  hence I joined. Looking back on chat ban summaries, I understand now.

    Anyway, there is not much more I can say. Apologies, 452, stay well. I will try to prove myself I am a better person in the future, and I hope I can prove myself to you especially, but again, I don't expect you to. 

    Thank you for your time.

  • I just saw your edit to the comment you made about the new files change and how it breaks the file module. Hopefully you'll be able to fix that bug for the module, as I use it myself as it helps for finding new pics. :)

  • Hello, I recently made a proposal on Central (and on EN Wikipedia) that I thought you might be interested in. Would you take a look at User blog:Thisismyrofl/Suggestion: "Documentation" namespace (or even better, the original on Wikipedia)?

    I've worked with you in the past and I know the type of admin you are. I wanted to know if it would be a change you would welcome on your wiki.
