Ahoy there! Just a word in your ear about declaring pages Candidates for Speedy Deletion: please don't tag the entire page for deletion based on one element or paragraph, unless it's the only thing on the page. Just remove the paragraph that bugs you, and let the rest be.
Also, there's a policy to give newer users a bit of buffer room after their edits, because they're likely still correcting and trying to figure stuff out, and it's extremely frustrating to spend 20 minutes desperately working on something only to have it all deleted or clipped off by someone with a stronger grasp of how it works. I hope this is easy enough to swallow... it can be difficult to restrain yourself sometimes, but the YPPedia has exponentially more "greenie" users than most other wikis on the internet, so we do need to do our best to make them feel comfortable in a new and confusing environment. Welcome to the YPPedia, in any event! --Ponytailguy 20:45, 2 September 2006 (PDT)
Thanks for the info, I wasn't really sure if that page met the requirements but if it is true that he has been banned then the information is much less relavent, isn't it? Also thanks for the welcome, you've probably noticed some of my edits and new pages, I hope they meet the 'requirements' and add to, not subtract from, the quality of the YPPedia. --Inschato 21:00, 2 September 2006 (PDT)
- Aye, information about banning/blocking is something we don't generally allow on Pirate pages unless it's extremely important and relevant to that pirate, like it is with someone like Robertdonald, Antix or Phade. In this case, you're correct to assume it's inappropiate for the YPPedia, but there was still content there that could be salvaged, so a CSD wasn't the best course of action.
- I wouldn't worry about your edits or quality thereof. As a general rule, if people are being quiet, you're doing an amazing job. --Ponytailguy 21:10, 2 September 2006 (PDT)
The word "you" is where the problem lies. Third-person writing avoids both "I" and "you." --Thunderbird 13:49, 4 September 2006 (PDT)
