From YPPedia


Ahoy! The article chest was fine how it was, and I suspect the article you tried to create in its place already exists somewhere - I've reverted your edits for this reason. It's nothing personal, I'm just trying to keep the wiki tidy. What were you trying to make? Perhaps I can help you. --Belthazar451 21:15, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation titles should be in the form "chest (disambiguation)", that is a space after the base page title. Furthermore I don't see the need for a "chest (disambiguation)" page. This would only be the case if there was a "chest" page that is vastly more important than all the other chest pages. Arguably this could be an article containing content similar to List of storage furniture#Chests (PoE storage), but then again it would make for a really short article, there isn't too much else to write about the subject. It would be best if you explained what you try to achieve (and waited for some sort of consensus) before moving that page again. I moved it back for now. --Alfwyn 21:59, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Island designers

Hi, I'm not sure what you were trying to make at Island designer directroy, but the content for island design already exists, and there's a directory of island designers as a category here. Let me know if I can help you further! --Yaten talk 20:59, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Island stubs

Ahoy. I've rolled back your changes to the Park and Angelfish Island articles because I don't feel that either of those really constitutes a stub. Before continuing you should address the points brought up at Template talk:Islandstub as to what really constitutes a stub article for an island. --Fiddler 15:59, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Alpha island too. And you're not even doing it right... --Belthazar451 23:45, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

it is a stub becuase in 2010 4 building were made and they are info page like all stubs--Top90 06:17, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Yppedia:Request for Adminship

Ahoy. As per policy, since you have failed to correctly fill out the Request for Adminship that is clearly outlined it has been deleted. Please take the time to view other past RfA's that have been successful for recommendation on how you should fill this out in future. Please also have a look at some [[YPPedia:Requests for adminship/Standards|user standards] for what they expect of an administrator. Fair winds! -- Cedarwings (talk) 07:00, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Using Templates

The usual way to use templates is to just use them like {{delete}}. You just seem to copy some of the template text. As a consequence pages you request deletion for don't end up in Category:Candidates for speedy deletion and the request is hard to notice for admins. --Alfwyn 13:21, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Ice Template

Ahoy. Please don't re-name long-established templates. The template {{Ice}} (Usage) is used on close to four hundred different articles - your modification of that template broke every single one of them, and was completely unneccesary, as the uses for the template you put in its place are already covered by the {{testing}} (Usage) template. I've reverted your move and related edits. Please read up on YPPedia policies and style guide before attempting to create any further templates. --Belthazar451 13:44, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Using templates, again

I tried already to explain the usage of templates above. As seen in this edit you still don't seem to have a grasp of the concept. Please refrain from editing templates until you understand the concepts of transclusion and substitution. --Alfwyn 14:04, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Your upload of Image:Permanent ban.png has been reverted because there is no reason to have the ban reason hidden. It is not violating privacy as "Spamming" is most likely a common ban reason, and the account name is blurred out in the picture itself. --Thunderbird 00:56, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Images & Templates

Remember to take care while editing the YPPedia. Recently you have uploaded several images (mostly avatars it seems) which were not named according to our naming scheme for avatar images. Following this scheme when uploading new images helps keep YPPedia's large collection of image files organised. Some templates also rely on properly named images in order to function correctly.

Secondly, I noticed you tried to create a new template. When creating new templates, consider whether there is a need for the template. Users generally only edit their own userpages, and are discouraged from editing the userpages of others. Secondly, it's important to make sure you spell new page names correctly. A typo with your new template has meant that it's not being properly recognised as a template by YPPedia's software.

Because of the above reasons, I've proposed that the template you attempted to create be deleted. Even if the template name was corrected, I don't forsee it being used by many others. Be sure to check the YPPedia:Style guide for more information that will help you while editing the YPPedia. Fair winds! --Sagacious (talk) 13:27, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Your recent edits

Ahoy! All of your recent edits have been votes on proposals that were either added to policy or rejected over two years ago. Take care to check the dates on when those votes were actually active.

To address your comment on the policy to auto-fail improperly completed RfAs (i.e. "instead of removing them edit them"), there's two good reasons why this is not possible or desirable.

  1. The RfA is often missing information specifically about the user in question, which the rest of us would have no knowledge of in order to write it on the RfA.
  2. And more importantly, not filling it out properly demonstrates either an inability to follow instructions, or a lack of understanding on how templates work, and both of these are among the more basic skills neccesary for an admin.

If you want to try to change the outcome of a vote, you're free to re-raise the issue and call another vote, but you'll need to have a very good case if you want to convince the consensus to go the other way. Otherwise, there's no need to vote on them, because the vote is long over. Fair winds! --Belthazar451 20:40, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
