Splitting the lists
So, I went through and categorized everything (that hadn't already been done so) as supplemental, radical, or transformational and added the appropriate categories. If you have any questions as to why I put something in a specific category, please ask and I'll explain my rationale. For now, though, things look pretty good. —EldritchNumen 14:45, 9 April 2007 (MDT)
- Thanks so much for finishing this job. However, I am curious on 3 of your decisions (AoT Expanded Religions, Advanced Aging/Height/Weight Rules (Talk:Advanced Vital Statistics (DnD Variant Rule)#Supplemental Variant Rule), and Talk:Armor Penetration). If you could clarify these I would be most appreciative. Please do not take this questions as an insult, I just want to better understand why these rules are in the category they are in. Thanks. --Green Dragon 10:41, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
- No problem! I'm glad someone is looking over them, since I want to make sure that everything belongs in the right category, and am by no means infallible. In any case, I replied to the three you brought up (and reversed my opinion in one). —EldritchNumen 14:31, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
- Thanks for doing that and I am glad I did not annoy you with my questions about your choices. --Green Dragon 16:39, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
Should this be moved back to DnD Variant Rules? I think so because this only deals with variant rules that can either supplement or transform D&D—this does not deal with core rules as those are covered by the SRD. What are your thoughts on this? --Green Dragon 16:56, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
- I'd say leave it. It is, after all, in the section that covers Homebrew material. I think it is pretty clear that the official rules are in the SRD section. If anyone is worried, we could easily put a disclaimer on the page, e.g. "These rules seek to expand upon or supercede the published SRD rules for DnD, though they all are still governed the d20 system." Or something like that. —EldritchNumen 17:46, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
- The reason I was asking if it would be a good idea to move this back was mainly because all the "Back to" footers still link to DnD Variant Rules and moving it back would save work. However, I do not think this needs a disclaimer (it should be obvious that these rules are not core). I guess I will just fix all the "Back to" footers. --Green Dragon 18:02, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
- We can help you, too! :) You don't have to be the only work horse around here... —EldritchNumen 18:30, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
- I know, I know... It's just that I would rather have help with the harder things (things I have not got around to doing yet — like responding to peoples balances of classes, etc). If you want to help with the harder things go to Recent Changes and press "Hide Patrolled". All the posts I have not looked at yet should pop up and if you answer those it would be a much much greater help than helping here :). Anyway, you can help here if you would like to. --Green Dragon 19:12, 10 April 2007 (MDT)
Shouldn't this page be admin blocked so "anti-geek" vandals (as such people might put it) can't vandalize this page? --Sam Kay 12:20, 12 August 2007 (MDT)
- Currently all the subsets off from Dungeons and Dragons are not locked; even to IP's. This has been a problem in some scenarios, however with this page it has not yet, really. This page has only been vandalized once (I think), and that was by an IP. An option is to make this page just editable to Users (like Talk:Main Page). Anyway, I am open to anything, and I would like to know what everyone thinks about locking this page, and to what degree... --Green Dragon 13:06, 12 August 2007 (MDT)
Thanks to all
Thank you to everyone who has been helping me get my Inath (3.5e Variant Rule) information up on the wiki. You all rock, and I appreciate the hell out of your help!
On that note, I will soon be looking to people for inspiration on developing new Inath Talents (Inath Supplement), after a general guideline of rules has been posted. This may include many tidbits already posted here on the wiki, but I am open to all suggestions for new content in thie regard. If you watch the page, and I make a post about generalizations regarding what a talent is and how it operates, I will be MORE than willing to hear what you think about adding to the list.
Thanks, ya'll! -- xido 15:29, 2 October 2007 (MDT)
Inath can be posted as a Radical Variant Rule, and the Jashnian (deific) rolling method can be posted as a Transformational Variant Rule (I could not figure out how to edit the list in the Non-Categorized section...). -- xido 20:05, 11 November 2007 (MST)
- Done. All the lists on this page are actually dlp lists so they have no need to be modified. All one has to do is change the categories on the items they wish to place and they will be moved. Hope this helps. --Green Dragon 20:15, 11 November 2007 (MST)
- Thanks, bud. You rock.
- On another note, I am also extremely happy to see that other campaign settings have been added to the WFR Guild page, and I certainly hope that one day I can consider you an honored member of the Guild, along with Dmilewski and the other talented contributors here. My top Guild Members are really excited about opening the WFR to outside members, and it has gone over really well with my partners in the project. I would love to include you among its ranks, and indeed would love to consider the D&D Wiki projects a full segment of the Guild's overall goals and methods. Along with the inclusion and recognizing of RPGA methods, I feel that we are in the beginning of a long and wonderful next few years. I can appreciate the hard work that has been done here, because Wikiworld so closely resembles the efforts of what I have helped Jashnia to be within Elftown. I have described to my partners that we will begin hosting d20/D&D-style stats and information on D&D Wiki for Jashnia settings (with respective links on those Elftown pages to dandwiki.com content), and hosting campaign setting content and concepts on the ET wiki, which allows certain privacy and editing setting that work more for a world that has the possibility of being published in typical legal venues. With these methods, we are hoping to make our content both D&D-friendly, and free-form-/text-based-/creative-writing-friendly. -- xido 22:19, 11 November 2007 (MST)
