From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

TL;DR: I haven't read my RfA - But, I resign. I voiced my problems, again and again, for over a year, and nobody even cared to acknowledge they existed except to literally tell me to shut up. I was ignored, deliberately harassed (especially off-site), people were being overtly mean to both me and others, and nobody cared enough to give a damn.* Repeatedly voicing my problems just got me in trouble, so I finally shut the hell up, and I used what I felt was the only avenue I had left to make the site feel positive again. I'm not proud of what I did, but I honestly feel justified in having done it. If you let somebody who is comfy at home feel poorly treated there, then ignore their many, many voiced concerns, consistently, for over a year, and tell them to quiet up and let them feel like an unimportant piece of junk: Then please don't be surprised that they got upset and acted on their own to try improve their circumstances.

Soppier stuff that is extraneous:
It's hard to let go of a community that warmed my heart for almost 10 freaking years. I used to have such a lovely, soul-saving time here, long past my love for DnD. This site was a home where I could hide whenever I felt sad. This place taught me that I could actually make a positive contribution to the world (most Barnstars+mini barnstars of all time babee ;3). I've zero doubt it saved my life. But perhaps I should just accept that the people, the energy, the love, the respect - The site that I loved is gone; And perhaps it's gone for good. A wise man once asked me "Which community are you helping, and is this what you want?"; I should've answered him honestly.

I really want to apologise to Blue Dragon: For we had such a fun and constructive time, you are literally my favourite person on this wiki, and far and away my biggest regret in all this is that your life has been made more difficult again (I obviously breached ye trust, but do lemme know if I can ever do anything for you, ever) - I am truly sorry.

I also want to apologise to BigShotFancyMan: for letting their life become difficult when they were *the only person on this wiki, aside from GamerAim, to actually listen to my concerns. A really, really special thanks to the three of you, and also to Marasmusine for espousing every attitude that made me fall in love with this wiki. Were it up to me, I would make put those four people in charge of the universe.

Those are all the apologies I feel are necessary - I hope instead of being upset about that, you can, perhaps for a single moment, understand my point of view. For obvious reasons, I guess I won't be allowed around here anymore. I earnestly hope that everyone has a happier time than I <3

I hope that explains my position a little better. If I'm still able to, I'll still exist, an' I might stop and make the odd contribution, every now and again, just to relive that blissful nostalgia. At the end of the day, it is just a website with cool but unimportant text about fictional things, so nobody should get that upset <3

P.S. I sincerely and eagerly want reaffirm my love, and respect, for everybody mentioned at #ilu (including Green Dragon). If any of you mentioned want to get in touch, then please do <3

Peace y'all <3 --SgtLion (talk) 14:02, 9 December 2018 (MST)

I was the cherry on your cake.
I was the sugar with your coffee.
I was the lion of your pride.

I write just for closure's sake.
I voiced my plight, you ignored me.
I acted out, shot down in my stride.

Abouteth I[edit]

I'm probably banned!

To do[edit]

Love thy plighted admins more in the future.

I did it![edit]

I did a whole lot of cool things, for instance:

  • Forever keep trying to learn about wikibots and failing. I'll get there. What can I say? I have a bot that does anything I need now.
  • Learn 5e so I can participate in DandwikiDnDing. I'm so bad at learning these things by myself. 5e upsets me thus far. But I know how to make a character now.
  • Update Wiki to new MediaWiki version Yeehaw.
  • Update bot to work with new MediaWiki version Damn yooou!
  • Change the captcha system to something the average dullard like myself could actually understand without having to duckduckgo it. I am but a God among mortals (plus BD)


Barnstars~ (and rings?!) Trophy Case[edit]

Yes, this will be its own section now. Two and a half stars is enough for me to warrant it: I'm rich!:
Left to leave a legacy - Best in the biz yo. <3

I give you this Barnstar for your outstanding work in helping to correct spelling, grammatical errors, and other language issues with articles. These small changes help improve each and every page, as well as improve upon the quality of D&D wiki as a whole. --Hooper 03:32, 19 October 2009 (CST)

Mini Barnstar has evolved into Barnstar! In recognition of your continued devotion to maintenance tasks and for your good humour. Marasmusine (talk) 14:23, 13 October 2015 (MDT)

SgtLion has provided valuable syntax assistance to make D&D Wiki respond to some of its more critical criticism. He has helped make MediaWiki:Common.css display individual namespaces differently, and he has resolved some major syntax failings like on {{5e SRD Spell List Level}}. Great work! --Green Dragon (talk) 05:57, 19 February 2017 (MST)

You, with the support of others, have accomplished something very wonderful for this wiki. The homebrew/official banners are established, and people can stop losing their minds over the matter. People now have only themselves to blame for their own misunderstandings. I can not thank you enough for going through the tangle of code necessary to make that happen. --Kydo (talk) 06:09, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

Hey, cool dude! Here's a totally hip barnstar for using your radical robot to automate (most of) the 3e SRD creatures! I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say how much we appreciate what you've done for us with your bot, so thanks <3 --GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 07:53, 3 September 2017 (MDT)

I award you this barnstar for your willingness to jump into multiple large-sized infrastructure projects. Using SgtLionBot you have made vast improvements in a short time. This barnstar picks out your restructuring of EN Publishing to fit it with OGL requirements in a successful manner. --Green Dragon (talk) 23:29, 28 November 2017 (MST)

I award myself this good ol' CakeStar that I just made up because I want to celebrate having being on D&D Wiki for over ten years!!! Whoop!--SgtLion (talk) 15:50, 22 October 2018 (MDT)

This section is to secretly declare my love for wiki friends,
Though they'll not acknowledge it, it's my love I.. sends.

The first and original, the true GD,
Your commitment and insight forever astound me.
A second and so cool, my dear Marasmusine,
You put your words behind me, and since, we are kin.
[Plus an extra line for my total crush on you - is that a sin?]
Poetic, with soul, I talk of course of my Salasay,
Your greetings, your care, your words make every day.
Most certainly blind to this, I dare mention Blue Dragon,
Wizardry, knowledge and friendliness, thanks a ton~
A constant positive, no doubt a closest Jwguy,
Whenever we converse, my heart just dares to fly!
Woah, that was a fast impression, smart Darkzumi, (Smartzumi?)
Charming? Sharp eye? Niceties? You've woo'd me.
You mean I haven't yet talked of that kind, precious Kydo?
I hope the attraction his determination stirs in me doesn't show!
My, my, GamerAim, it's already like love at first sight,
Smart, clever one of progress, I beseech thee, be my brave knight!
(With one more line dedicated to your brilliance, it's only right.)
[Fine, you legendary crumpet. You're my shining beacon of light.]
Hold fast, Cotsu, for your goodwill is that of legend,
Amongst a worrying and fractured community, you are true godsend.
Real man o' the world, BSFM, well, cross the 'pond,
We disagree so much, and yet we've a trust; I am indeed fond.
No apologies to all who I failed to mention,
Learn to treat people better, if you ever want ascension!
