  • This will be the only time I will kindly ask you to refrain from renaming the "Organic gags" page. "Gags" should not be capitalized in its title; this is a standard guideline for page titles as documented in our Manual of Style. Next time you rename the page will result in a short block.

    • I think this one's on you as you should have referenced the Manual of Style in your reason for editing the title. You can't expect everyone to know a set of rules that's not in plain sight, especially with a vague name like that.

    • Our policy pages are always located in the navigation at the top under “This Wiki”. They can also be found on the Main Page. Although we cannot guarantee that users have read any of the policies, it is assumed that every user who contributes to the wiki possesses a basic understanding of what our main site policy and Manual of Style entail.

      While you’re right that I probably should’ve linked the Manual of Style in my edit reason, what you could’ve also done was send me a message asking why I reverted the change you made. Luckily I did you a favor by editing the above message where I previously made no mention of the Manual of Style.

    • When you put the reason "proper title capitalization", I assumed you didn't know proper grammar as non-articles are always supposed to start with a capital letter. You say that you did me a favor, but it should be clearly marked in the first place. I wouldn't think to check "This Wiki" for formatting rules and, even if I did, I wouldn't know what "Manual of Style" meant, so it should clearly be renamed to something more identifiable to what it actually is.

    • Yes, I’ve admitted that my edit reason was quite frankly vague and could’ve offered a better explanation but that does not change the fact that there was at least one other option for you to consider before reverting my title change.

      I don’t know why you wouldn’t think to look at the navigation dropdown menus because the purpose of a wiki navigation is to allow users to quickly navigate through the wiki’s important pages. I’d advise you to keep that in mind. I’m hoping there isn’t any harm in encouraging you to take a few seconds out of your freetime to open the “This Wiki” dropdown menu and find Manual of Style, then take a few minutes to read the guidelines from that page. This could not have been any more simple than it already is, my friend.

  • Please do not delete code from pages. That is vandalism and you may be punished for doing so if you continue.

    • I looked at the comparison between our edits and didn't realize I accidentally deleted some formatting. I was just correcting a line in the trivia. It won't happen again.

    • No, that's wrong!

      ...Obscure video game references aside, I don't think Excalibur did any form of vandalism, from what I can infer from his edit is that he ether used the source editor (Nerdy) or classic editor (Even more nerdy) and accidently removed the piece of code with his edit.

      What he did wasn't vandalism, if he did then he'd spam random junk onto the page or removed heavy chunks of the page (Which he did neither). Excalibur, most likely, was too naïve with code and accidently removed a line.

      What he did... I don't think is block worthy, but hey that's my two cents onto the topic.

    • I used words like “may” and “please” because I was not sure, however it was worth a mini-warning just in case. I understand this isn’t my wiki, but I do run a wiki for 5 years. I highly suggest making a forum announcement for people to use source editor, as it is very unlikely to make mistakes like this, while it is easy in visual editor
