I've known Honeyfur for a while now and it's nice to see that arrogant, bossy, know-it-all be put in her place, and how she cracks and closes the thread with a salty remark after she knows she can't win. You have my respect, Tycio.
Fair enough, but it's nice of you to stand up for yourself.
Also, Honeyfur doesn't really care about understanding others feelings, she's very selfish and narcissistic in that way. Not to mention, her "friends" are just people who blow smoke up her... well you know. She's also more then willing to mistreat them when they become inconvenient to her.
"I try not to consider people as lost causes" I must say, your optimism about other people is strangely admirable but I must remind you of the famous saying "Reality is often disappointing". Not to mention, that mind-set can make you easy prey for others.
"Smoke metaphor is not appropriate" I know, that's why I didn't say it all. Not to mention, it's true and the truth is more important than anyones feelings.
Also, do you genuinely care about the context or are you just saying that? Because I've met goal-post shifters like that before...
0% chance would be overly pessimistic, just as 100% chance would be overly optimistic.
Metaphors are never true, that is why they are metaphors. Even though you did not use the entire metaphor, the insinuation is clear, and not really appropriate ways to discuss other editors.
I don't understand how requesting context is goalpost shifting. If you are going to direct me to read a conversation where people are referring to something put on a talk page, it would obviously be important for me to read the ?diff= for said talk page.
Hey man, if it quacks like a duck, looks like a duck and walks like a duck it's a duck no matter what you call it.
"Metaphors are never true" Yeah, obviously they are not literally true as you said "that's why they're metaphors"... And again, the truth is the truth and that matters more than anyone's feelings. You're going to hear and see things you don't like, that's life.
Again I ask, do you genuinely care about the context or are you just saying that? No offence, but I don't know you personally and I don't want to be sent on a wild goose chase.
I can walk like a duck and quack like a duck, so if I put on a duck costume I'm a duck? Nope.
I care about the context if you want me to weigh in on the talk page you linked to. I suppose if I cared a lot I would comb both their histories to find it myself. That I'm asking you to take up that burden (for having brought it up) means that while I do genuinely care, it's not a huge amount. I'll likely forget about it unless you maintain my interest :)
"If it was a shrinking human like Ray Palmer inside a robotic duck, I could be fooled" So, basically something that would never happen...okay bruh.
False dichotomy? First off, you're talking about shrinking duck suits and metaphors being literal. No offence, but I don't think you're one to go around preaching "False dichotomies" to others.... Second off, you're just arguing for the sake of arguing at this point for you have nothing to gain for disagreeing on small arbitrary things. In short, you're cutting off your own nose to spite your face...
Never happen by present tech but future duck disguises could always be possible with holograms.
The validity of my view considering caring/uncaring a false dichotomy is unrelated to duck hologram theory, please assess each argument independently rather than make ad hominem argument against latter based on former.
I do not believe that argument purely for the sake of argument can exist. Argument is a window to mutual enlightenment of both parties and observers, therefore other purposes can exist, and likely always exist as the priority.
I do not consider it arbitrary to note that "care or not care" oversimplifies the human experience.
Two people might care different amounts about something, for example. Perhaps one cares so much more intensely than the other that the other's lesser care seems like a complete lack of care by comparison: but that is not so.
"I do not believe that argument purely for the sake of argument can exist." Uh-huh, I hate to point out the obvious but "I believe" and or "I think" are not arguments. Also, for someone who preaches about context you seem pretty quick to let your word alone hold up your arguments...
"Caring/uncaring a false dichotomy is unrelated to duck hologram theory" Sure they do, both of them show despite the fact you love to use big words you don't really know what you're talking about and like to make yourself seem smarter than you actually are. Also, Cherry picking your past points! Classy...
Also, I'm done. I've seen enough... Also, seeing how you where too busy preaching on your soap-box I took the screenshot a day ago and I'm taking your lack of response as a "Yes".
You are correct that believe/think are not arguments. I suppose I should then point out that you didn't make an argument proving that it is possible to argue 100% for the sake of arguing.
It is a hypothetical construct, and if someone has proven it can be true, I have not seen such proof, so I am just informing you that I am not convinced of it.
These words do not seem big to me (that is relative/subjective) and I use them because they are comfortable for me as I struggle to make a point.
If I were smarter, I could get my points across using fewer/shorter words, so if I am doing this subconsciously to seem smarter, I am actually contradicting my conscious mind which knows efficiency is also a hallmark of intelligence (which I fail at).
I hope I do know something of what I talk about, but if there are shortcomings you perceive I would like to know so as to improve from learning them.
I actually did respond to you: I asked what you would use the screenshot for. Whether I said yes or no would be conditional upon that. I think you should probably take a lack of affirmation as a "no", but I did not want to give a hard refusal since I was open to the idea of giving you my consent if the use was one I liked.
Not sure which point you mean I'm cherry-picking. I totally cherrypick sometimes, I'll admit to that, but an hour later I will be fuzzy on the specifics, and I think cherrypicking is sometimes harmless so I don't know that I had any deceptive intent in doing so. Sometimes I cherrypick merely to emphasize which point I am addressing.
Isn't a soapbox generally on a public forum rather than in a private thread? If you feel I am being disingenuous because this a thread viewable to the rest of the community, I'll gladly answer you on some other medium, but I doubt I'll talk any different.
I expect you are frustrated with my vague and non-committal reply where I would not fully analyze w:c:LionKing:Thread92289 so to show my goodwill I can see if I can figure out what they were discussing without help from you...
Do you happen to know if Tristen Metcalf runs that Twitter account, or if it is one of the admins of the Lion Guard Wiki that runs it? It's described as "official Twitter feed for The Lion Guard Wiki" but I don't know if that's true. I would need to know to give understand the context of it's addition/removal.
I hope that my taking the time to look up this information on my own shows that I do care about the goings-on and your concerns. But in the future if you know more about the goings-on (ie why you objected to that specific warning) it's good form to provide that accessory information.
I'll be honest, I did get blocked and ironicly RealKnockout got banned permently for apparenty using bots. But I'm willing to come clean about it for what I did wasn't world ending and I'm willing to speak about it in constructive manner if anyone wishes to ask.
I'm not sure what % done the import of text is. I did not personally save the pictures but a volunteer from /a/ (anime imageboard) said he backed it up on archive.org and there appears to be a torrent file for it.
Once I've verified step 1 (import of source code) is done I'll inquire on Phabricator about image import.
Text import is most important because then we can add new stuff while we wait for the restoration of the old stuff. The most important data has always been the issue numbers and page numbers (or episodes and seconds) since those specifics can always be used to rebuild lost info.
That is also why I've always emphasized we should add that where possible, since text is easier to save than image.
That's a question for Paladox since they're the member of the Miraheze staff who've been assigned to take care of the import. I'm not really sure. Unlike when I use Special:Import manually, it doesn't appear to show a log when Phabricator imports documents, or else I'm not sure how to display it, so I can't see if it's still ongoing or what has or hasn't been done.
I mean, ideally you'd think they would amend their policy visibly BEFORE closing down wikis. Considering the rough treatment animebaths got (though not nearly as rough as animeslaps or KNJ which were shut down years before the Fandom merger) animefeet was pretty much coddled and got many more months of prep thanks to Sannse's generosity.
I could've done more with that time, was lazy and dragged my feet on it and hoped for others to pick up the slack, I was never the founder to begin with, even if I did end up broadening and growing it after adoption.
I don't think we'll need many administrators at the new place to start off.
The project is not, and has never been, for 'fetish shots': it is a neutral encyclopedic documentation of situations where characters are barefoot, that is all.
There is already an animefeet blogspot, you could also contribute there if you are worried about Miraheze shutting down. I am always open to looking for backup hosts in addition to MH. I'm presently having trouble importing the database there anyway.

Miraheze never announced that they are going to shut down, nor are they going to shut down their wikis, closing is optional if a user of one of it's staff members chooses it. I think it's just that your still on FANDOM and if they close these sites because it was a business decision to do so. Also a user that is a founder or bureaucrat of any Miraheze wikis could choose whether you are an admin or not.
Once we do finish setting up on Miraheze it wouldn't hurt to keep looking for 2nd host in case they adopt Wikia-like policies in the future. The transition would've went a lot smoother if we'd gotten an earlier start on Miraheze.
Appropriateness is subjective. Fandom is of course able to make final decisions on what content they want to include, though it's appreciated when they can do so in a polite way that doesn't include personal labeling on their end and simple nods they are making business decisions for company image based on external cultural attitudes.
I disagree with the idea that they are fetish content, personally. I understand Fandom closing them over the CONCERN that some might PERCEIVE or LABEL them that way (they could do without the controversy) but those who disagree with that are free to object to their projects being labelled that way.
Trope-based wikis are certainly not franchise-based, and I think that would be a simpler basis for objection, if Fandom wants to focus purely on franchises/series and not upon tropes. In which case I'm surprised "all the tropes" isn't on the chopping block after uncyclopedia.
