  • I think we need to post something about how we'd like the pages to be written. Tonight's example of someone posting pages with little-to-none content has just made me think about it harder.

    Perhaps something along the lines of "at least three paragraphs are necessary for a page to remain on this wiki," or something along those lines, and have a link on the front page about a style guide. At least then we'll be able to tell people that they're violating wiki rules.

    Just a thought, let me know yours,

  • That clown that created all the Kayesaur pages a while ago is back with a new account. I've blocked him again and removed all the crap he posted, but might need to keep our eyes open.

  • I'm thinking about just getting shot of the SCP stuff for just now. I know I'm not quite finished with the PTNH, but the SCPs are irritating too- they all seem to be straight copypastes from either the main site or their wiki.

    What are your thoughts?

    • Didn't Death Incarnate make most of the SCP pages? I would ask him about this but he's been scarce around here lately and I'm not really familiar with SCP myself.

    • He made a couple of them, but for the most part they're straight CP jobs. I'll keep Death's ones, but I think the others need to go, unless you have any objections. In any case, unless it's an article that's been archived, SCPs are constantly evolving and being rewritten anyway, so I'm not convinced that they should be here. We just don't have the time to keep up with them.

      Fil.

    • Go ahead and delete them, then. If Death decides to come back or someone else wants to take a shot at the SCP content, they can be responsible for updating them as and when.

  • Adding Groups was a mistake, I was thinking about the Resident Evil categories and such. My bad. Came back to fix it, but you got ahead of me.

  • Hi Devo, was just wondering if you actually are going through the PTNH by alphabet. If so, I'll start looking at them alphabetically and see if there's anything I feel like doing work on; if not I'll just delete if that's good with you.

    Also, have you finished your import from MCW?

  • Hi Devo, tonight I've added a couple of articles to the PTNH tag, just in case you want to have a look at those as well. I just assume you're doing things alphabetically, and don't want us to miss anything.

  • Just had to block a Fandom for removing complete content from 7 different pages. The IP is 77.85.90.56, you maybe want to keep an eye out for him on MCW. Have restored the pages.

    • I'll keep a lookout. Although I probably would've let him get away with erasing the Zurg page. I really don't think that belongs here. :P

  • Hi Devo, another message to ask your opinion.

    I know what we discussed privately, but I'm coming around to the conclusion that it's maybe better to just delete a lot of these pages. I simply don't have either the time nor inclination to research and fix up most of them, and by the looks of things, neither do you. There are some that may be salvageable with minimal effort, which I don't have a problem with, but for the majority that's not really what I want to spend my time here doing. Most of them could just be removed and perhaps rewritten in the future with simple, concise pages whose subject matter can be left to other wikis (the Godzilla/Gamera-related pages are a particular bugbear of mine).

    Let me know what you think,

    • I agree, for the most part. I'm still going through the list at present, but once I'm done and you and Peashooter are okay with it, I'd like to just delete whatever pages are left and be done with it.

        Loading editor
    • Not a problem. I've already removed a couple. As for Pea, don't fret it, I find his articles actually pretty easy to rewrite. Dunno what happened, maybe he just didn't like the last message I sent him, but there's been no sign of him since then (nearly 3 weeks back).

      Once you've had a look at everything, let me know, and I'll take a look at what's left to see what I'd like to rewrite, then I'll maybe put on a short-term tag for anything I'd like to redo. Once you're finished, we can properly clean out Monster Wiki.

      On another note, I've had to block yet another Power Rangers CP guy. The amount of time it's taking to catch these guys is just getting frustrating, he copied from 3 different sites (it's maybe just the same guy operating from different IPs, I don't know). I'm unsure of how to deal with this. Maybe we really need a guidance page, or a (last resort) You Will Be Banned If . . . Page. It doesn't happen that often, but when it does, I know that that will be my evenings editing gone chasing down plagiarism.

    • Probably the same guy using different IPs. He's been doing the same thing on the Monsters & Creatures Wiki (dunno why since that wiki's served its purpose now) and even the Movie Morgue Wiki! I've banned him from the Movie Morgue and gave him a warning on MCW, but I'm fully expecting him to ignore it.

      As for trying to deal with it, I think all we can really do is just delete these incidents as they pop up and ban the culprits. They usually don't make usernames for themselves, so I reckon they only come here purely to ruin things, so warnings are probably wasted on them.

    • Added a thing on the front page about MMPR editors being autoblocked if they aren't signed in. Probably won't make a difference, but it's stated now.

  • Hey Devo, just wanted to know what you thought on this.

    I was considering adding some of the Zoanoids to the Manufactured Monsters category, as even though they are genetically engineered, certain types were produced in numbers, so I think that could qualify as "manufactured". I'll leave the decision to you though, because Guyver's definitely your area rather than mine.

    • I'm done with the Guyver for now. The only way I'm changing anything now is if/when the manga finally comes off hiatus and finally finishes the story! 32 years the Guyver series has been going! It's as old as I am! And it STILL hasn't finished because it keeps getting passed down to different writers/artists/publishers! I just want them to resolve the story and finally be done with it! :P

        Loading editor
    • Wow, really didn't expect such a vehement response! I thought it looked pretty interesting (the actual Guyvers not so much, but I'm definitely into the idea of shapeshifting sleeper agents, and X-Day just sounded amazing), and was going to ask if you knew of any sites that catered for a . . . certain type . . . of download. I might still ask that question.

      Besides that, do you think that some Zoanoids might be classed as manufactured, or do you think that this is something best left alone?

      Fil

    • Yeah, Zoanoids count as manufactured, at least the non-hyper ones which are generally one-of-a-kind.
