From D&D Wiki
Welcome to D&D Wiki!
Hello Jwguy, and welcome to D&D Wiki. I hope you have been enjoying this site, and I hope you have been finding the information here on D&D Wiki useful. I am an admin (and, actually, the owner as well) here on D&D Wiki along with a couple other people who make up "The Face" of D&D Wiki. Everything relating to admins can be found here.
If you have any question about D&D Wiki, D&D, formatting on D&D Wiki, what day today is, or whatever, an admin will, many times, give a good answer. Please feel free to ask any admin any question (ask me a question!).
Formatting on D&D Wiki (or any wiki for that matter) can be very difficult, and if you need help a good place to start is Help:Editing on Wikipedia (or even their Introduction page). This will explain the basic wiki formatting and should provide quite a few useful links that explain more specific areas of wiki formatting. Again, if you have any questions about formatting on D&D Wiki please ask them as, I imagine, anybody will be more than happy to help you get them answered.
A strong and welcoming community exists on D&D Wiki, and I am sure you will find it rather nice. Most discussions take place on content talk pages, however please feel free to walk into The Tavern (our local chat room) and talk to some fellow D&D Wikians. Anyway, on D&D Wiki, possibly since discussions are never deleted, people try to be nice. This means please follow Wikipedia's guidelines on Civility and Etiquette when discussing anything. Also, on a pretty different note, to ensure people know who posted what, please sign your name after a post with four tildes (~~~~) or by clicking on the signature icon. This will automatically produce your name and the date. Anyway, I hope you come to love the close-knit D&D Wiki community and welcome again, you are now a D&D Wikian. --Green Dragon 23:03, 13 August 2009 (MDT)
Tirr Areas Infobox
Hey, so I noticed you were open to suggestions for ways to make your campaign setting pages a little prettier. I took that as a challenge. I've
stolen borrowed taken inspiration from some other infoboxes I've seen. If you want to stop by here and tell me what you like/dislike on the associated talk page, I can finish it up so that your campaign setting will be prettier. --Badger 01:20, 27 June 2011 (MDT)
Favor to ask
JW, I would appreciate it if you could help me out with some proofreading/balancing. I created a few items, and have them listed on my User Page. Would you be able to take a look and address any issues you might see? Thanks much. -- Irykyl 08:43, 28 March 2012 (MDT)
- I'll get around to giving them a look and rating, sure. Jwguy 13:52, 28 March 2012 (MDT)
- Just a few things I noticed as I went through the first few, though I've only fully checked the Helmet of Zen. There is no authorship of pages, therefore the "Created By: Irykyl" should be removed from the pages. Second, items like the Full-plate of Zen Disciple sound like they should be artifacts, and I've edited the helmet of zen to reflect this. For auras, the aura is usually of a school of magic, such as abjuration or conjuration, though rarely it can be a type or subtype, such as good, lawful, etc..
- The Full plate is an artifact. I was wanting the individual pieces to be wonderous items. It can be worn as a solo piece. Thanks for looking!-- Irykyl 02:32, 29 March 2012 (MDT)
- I gathered that, but considering that they were supposedly forged by gods, and the power of some of the abilities they give the wearer, it just seems that such a classification might be a little odd. I thought Minor Artifacts would suit them, with the Full Plate being a Major Artifact. Jwguy 06:41, 29 March 2012 (MDT)
- That makes sense. How's the balance overall?-- Irykyl 15:50, 30 March 2012 (MDT)
- I looked over most of the artifacts. As long as a DM plays them like artifacts should be (Rare and powerful, not bought out of the local pawnshop), they should be fine. What kind of thing were you going for? I noticed a lot of Wisdom Bonuses. Jwguy 01:57, 16 April 2012 (MDT)
Not to be a prick but... (<--- If you have to start a sentence with these words? Don't.) Because you'll probably just end up sounding like one. Duh. Now, to emphasize and illustrate: I wrote that notation on the Talk Page of the Black Lion Lead to express my displeasure with GD's 'editorial' of the class back in October. The very uninformed description, that it gloriously was. After all, I thought it was a personal attack on my work in general and completely unprofessional. But as GD has so thankfully written, it was eventually corrected. No harm, no foul. Done is done. ...And just as he and I were working things out... You show up to 'express your IMHO'. ...Well super. How thoughtful of you. Isn't that just wonderful. Aren't you just cute. Moral of the Story: Don't be a Prick, Prick. --Jay Freedman 00:25, 16 April 2012 (MDT)
- The page and that section showed up in the recent changes as a recent edit. I had trouble understanding your accusation that it was offensive, since the only definition I know for Mendacious did not seem to apply in that capacity, and so my comment was questioning in that line of thought. The Not to be a prick beginning was my recognition that questioning the use of and accusation of using the word might be seen as offensive, as it appeared you were already agitated and I know Green Dragon sometimes has difficulties communicating, so I wanted to clear that up before I mentioned my feeling on the matter. In summary, my comment was regarding that I didn't see how it was such a big deal, as opposed to a small mistake. It was irrational to go that crazy over it, and I didn't understand the use of Mendacious. If you weren't hair-trigger flipping, this would have been a "Yeah, we got that." bit and you wouldn't have posted a possible violation of the rules on my user-page. Stuff.
- Now that the subject of that comment is out of the way, I'll attend to this one: Get over yourself. You're getting all worked up on the internet over something really trivial, especially if it was such water under the bridge, as you say. I've found out firsthand, and you should have, that this is a public place, and being hyper-sensitive over what is yours is only going to cause you to perform irrational actions and possibly lower your credibility in the eyes of the community; Like you're doing now.
- If you wanna' rage because all you can see are attacks coming from all sides, I'd like you take this opportunity to ask you to please do that somewhere else. If you decline, then whatever, I'm really not concerned. Your moral-supremacy, my-way-or-the-highway post on my user-page just confirms that in all your lecturing, you're not much of a saint either, even if your assumptions were true.
- This is a wiki. Everything here is public. Learn to be calm, work with others, and understand that you can't really hurt anyone but yourself over the internet, no matter how hard you try to flex your internet tough-guy muscles, or how clever and witty you think your comments are, and that's beside all the sunken ideology.
- I made the same mistake as you, a couple weeks ago. I got all angry at Green Dragon, thinking that he was just being a jerk or something, and messing up my pages. I'm not really sure what I think about him, but as it turned out, he had a decent reason for what he did, and I just didn't know any better, and thought my work was under attack. I saw what happened here, and I felt like adding in my two cents, even with a disclaimer, that you seemed to misconstrue entirely. Here's hoping you can work out your problems, like I did, and that you can follow your own advice. Peace~ Jwguy 01:55, 16 April 2012 (MDT)
- Well well. Your pretty smart after all kiddo. I meet alot of people on the internet and not all of them are bright people. Mostly trolls and morons who need a step or two to be kept in their place. After your little '2 cents' post, on an already resolved issued, I figured you for a troll too. But you kept your head pretty well I see. ...Long-winded? But good. Needless to say: Well done. However, don't push your luck. Handing out advice and opinions during a dispute is never a 'bright idea'. "Pearls before swine?" So the saying goes. Heh. Keep up the good work. We won't talk again. Warning noted. --Jay Freedman 02:14, 16 April 2012 (MDT)
- And we all lived happily ever after. Cool story, Bro. Jwguy 02:33, 16 April 2012 (MDT)
If you want your Tirr pages locked let me know and I can lock them. Just give me a list here, or direct me to the relevant campaign setting category and I can lock them for you. Which level of protection do you desire? Also please make sure that the pages are in the final state you desire if I am to lock them all the way to the administrator level. --Green Dragon (talk) 02:19, 25 February 2014 (MST)
- I appreciate the gesture, and I might take you up on that in the future. As it stands, I'm still kind of letting the campaign take shape. Every now and then, I decide to go back and change some stuff around; I've been running a campaign these last two years with this campaign, and while fun, it has served as a great testing ground for some of these concepts present in the campaign, so every now and then I have to revise the pages. I also want to get most of my pages into the "_____, Tirr" format before they're locked down, as well, so that I'm not taking up any namespaces that anyone else might want to use for a more general game, rather than the ones tailored for my own campaign. Thanks for the offer, though. If I manage to get all of this done, I'll definitely accept it, then. Jwguy (talk) 16:34, 25 February 2014 (MST)
- Well, pardon me for my lack of knowledge on Wikis, as far as administration goes, but is it possible to lock those pages so that only I can edit them? While they are rather complete, I do sometimes return to make edits for lore, and sometimes minor additions are fine. The template there is mainly just to keep random edits from overpowering them or changing them too drastically. It basically was just meant to signify that the idea behind the pages was pretty much complete and integral to the campaign, which I feel is necessary since Tirr is a slightly higher power-level campaign than usual, which can lead one to believe that some aspects are overpowered or rather different compared to others.
