AE2 Color Applicator[edit source]

I saw that you moved something. I was wondering if I had done something wrong. DiamondKnight19 (talk) 01:56, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

DiamondKnight19: nah, not really. The AE2 navbox disambiguated some stuff that doesn't need to be disambiguated. -Xbony2 (talk) 04:56, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

page to protect[edit source]

Hello, can you semiprotect (edit only autoconfirmed) Energy Core (Draconic Evolution)‎‎? Almost every second edit is vandalism. Qwertxquartx (talk) 18:37, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, that's a bit odd. Protected. -Xbony2 (talk) 02:41, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

Better standart-deletereasons?[edit source]

Hello, I would like to see the default deletion reasons (currently stored at MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown) being "polished up" a bit, following the Wikipedia pattern. I have created a draft for this: (see source code for complete thing)

  • General
    • Other reason
    • G1: Nonsense, vandalism or spam
    • G2: Test page
    • G3: Unambiguous copyright infringement or plagiarism
    • G4: Insufficient content
    • G5: Duplicated article
    • G6: Non-controversial cleanup
    • G7: One author who has requested deletion or blanked the page
    • G8: Page depending on a nonexistent or deleted page
  • User pages
    • U1: User request to delete page in own userspace
    • U2: Userpage or subpage of a nonexistent user
  • Redirects
    • R1: Redirect to a deleted or nonexistent page
    • R2: Recently created, implausible redirect/typo

Of course this still looks quite chaotic, e.g. the pure section links should be replaced by redirects like "FTB:DP#1", or the links to wikipedia. Besides, I have to say that I can't judge now whether the whole thing really makes sense, the idea just came to my head. Strangely enough, I get Wikipedia reasons when deleting files, but nowhere else? Qwertxquartx (talk) 16:54, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

The original was ripped directly from Wikipedia. Jinbobo, one of the original admins, copied a lot of things from Wikipedia, and to be honest I think it was a pretty bad idea to do much of what he did, since the scale of this wiki is entirely different from Wikipedia's and we have very different issues. Not hating on him, there weren't a lot of other wikis to copy from and Gamepedia wasn't a thing like it is today, but his solutions weren't great for the long term. I think it's better here to have a simplified set of reasons and a simplified deletion policy and not link to Wikipedia (their policies are not ours). We should probably finish a deletion policy before linking to it also. -Xbony2 (talk) 20:53, 1 August 2020 (UTC)
Okay. Thank you for your fast reply! Qwertxquartx (talk) 14:15, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
gamepedia notifications helped :P -Xbony2 (talk) 23:50, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
