My 2 cents (not that anyone asked or cares) and some explanation.

No, we're not going to let you post whatever you want on the wiki.

I think you're making a mistake by taking the role of attempting to moderate the accuracy of what gets put into the Wiki. As a moderator you should be removing flagrant rules violations (like quest postings) and arbitrating Wiki disputes. However, you should let the accuracy business be disputed amongst the users and only arbitrate as necessary.

Here's my reasoning:

1) There's a bit of a conflict of interest when a large contributor as well as moderator of the Wiki also is deciding what's accurate and what isn't. I don't think that requires much more explanation and while I'm not accusing you of anything, you can see why that might hurt the usage of the Wiki.

2) It will hurt the Wiki if people perceive that the role of keeping it accurate and updated falls on the moderators. Likewise, it will merely impose more of a burden on yourselves.

3) The Wiki is meant to belong to the community, not to Yhorian. Gabe was gracious enough to host it after Xanthrailles lost interest but do try to remember its intention is to be a scratch pad for the community, not Yhorian's personal CF FAQ. Don't assume ownership of something you don't own.

And frankly, its just a Wiki. Its meant to be a fluid evolving exchange of ideas that belongs to the community. That's the point of the Wiki. I don't know why everything you're involved with you need to immediately assume a role of ownership. You remind me of Valgina.

If imms wanted you to be able to choose your familiar there would be a command to do so. n/t

Death_Claw January 03, 2008 09:18AM

Isn't there? -nt-

infi January 03, 2008 10:26AM

No. n/t

Why have it some weird hash function based on char's name as opposed to simply making it random? nt

infi January 03, 2008 11:21AM

That's a good question.

Death_Claw January 03, 2008 12:29PM

You seem to be speaking like I 'consistantly' censor pages. I censored Infi, DC. That's it. nt

Yhorian January 03, 2008 03:25PM

I couldn't find the posts via search...

Scrimbul January 03, 2008 07:30AM

That's why its a Wiki. So just edit it.

Death_Claw January 03, 2008 01:24PM

Not even worth responding to. -nt-

infi January 03, 2008 08:51AM

I could personally care less, but...

Jib January 02, 2008 06:13PM

IMO, a reactive change to the schedule of familiars only becomes a problem if people get pissy about it

ExPaladin(VIP) January 03, 2008 03:03AM

I often wonder if its deterministic nature isn't meant to be exploitable...

Death_Claw January 03, 2008 09:21AM

Is it REALLY, verifiably based on a character's name? Can someone explain how that method possibly makes sense? n/t

Death_Claw January 04, 2008 03:34AM

Verification.

infi January 05, 2008 05:31AM

I've questioned this as well, and I think it should very likely be changed. nt

Yhorian January 03, 2008 11:37AM

Contradicting yourself often?

When did I not do that exactly?

"Any possible advantage lost"

Bash is a skill which can perma-lag you.

infi January 02, 2008 06:25PM

Personally I think that newbies would benefit from not having such knowledge at first

daurwyn(VIP) January 03, 2008 08:04AM

Because moderators aren't meant to do that? Are you on crack or something?

Yhorian(VIP) January 03, 2008 05:12AM

Why are you such a control freak?

Death_Claw January 03, 2008 11:13AM

Hi, I'm DC. And I like to be melodramatic. Name one other thing I censored on the Wiki.

Yhorian January 03, 2008 03:16PM

Death_Claw January 04, 2008 05:12AM

Read this.

infi January 03, 2008 11:27AM

I actually wrote the latter part of that description. So who am I censoring exactly?

Yhorian January 03, 2008 03:23PM

In fact, looking at the revisions, you only wrote all the Challegha tactics. The others were Torak and I. nt

Yhorian January 03, 2008 03:42PM

I would put that kind of descriptions to demons page since we have those. nt

DurNominator January 03, 2008 01:04PM

How about let the author decide where it goes?

infi January 03, 2008 01:17PM

It's a Wiki, so other people can re-arrange it.

DurNominator January 03, 2008 01:24PM

Re: It's a Wiki, so other people can re-arrange it.

Death_Claw January 03, 2008 01:27PM

Give one good reason why the Wiki should be an undirected ground for rants and misinformation. nt

Yhorian January 03, 2008 03:34PM

The heart of our disagreement.

infi January 03, 2008 09:07AM

And in disagreeing with the moderator, you've failed to persuade anyone else you're right. nt

Yhorian January 03, 2008 09:19AM

Misinfo.

infi January 03, 2008 10:28AM

Find someone who supports your hairbrained argument. Then call it misinfo. Not the other way around. nt
