Some IP has been vandalizing this page Starcraft Marine (5e Class). I am not sure if you guys think it is worth dealing with but I figured bring it to your attention. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by TeslaFistforge (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

SirSprinkles appears to have handled this. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 17:31, 10 September 2020 (MDT)

Several IPs have been editing this page despite the author asking this to not be done. I reverted the changes but the IPs in question have also been causing problems elsewhere, so I figured I would bring it to your attention. TeslaFistforge (talk) 22:24, 20 September 2020 (MDT)

Some Questions

Hopefully I am not bothering anyone but I have a few questions. I have been doing cleaning up by reverting malicious edits, and I was wondering: one, how do you revert an entire page back to a point before any of the malicious edits were made, as often times people will make multiple edits and the revert feature only does one edit at a time; two, would the administration as a whole rather that I report it here or just fix it myself? TeslaFistforge (talk) 13:44, 12 September 2020 (MDT)

1) If you click on the timestamp of when the edit was made in the "history" tab, it will show you what the page looked like at the time of that edit. If you then click "edit", the edit screen will warn you that you are editing an old version of the page. If you change nothing and click "Save", you'll revert the edits made since then.
2) There's no real need to report vandalism if you have already cleaned it up yourself, unless you judge the edits to be particularly problematic. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 20:44, 12 September 2020 (MDT)
Alright, thanks for the help! TeslaFistforge (talk) 21:16, 12 September 2020 (MDT)

Hi, i have a couple questions. Before i ask them, i am new to this page, so im very inexperienced with how it works. Sorry and thanks for your help in advance. Anyway, question 1: how and where do i go to talk to people about questions and rules and things like that. Please if possible give simple, but detailed direction. 2. Can someone help me with a disclaimer on my class im making. Im making a class referencing something, and as expected, its talking about some sort of disclaimer that i need to add. I dont know how to do that. Could you type it under here so i can put it on mine? Sorcerer of Bees

Not an admin but most of this stuff is simple enough.
  • Depends on what the question is. If it’s general rulings and such, maybe the talk page for the SRD part, or if it’s homebrew related, the talk page for that thing. The talk page is right at the top, beside the page tab.
  • What class? Might help me identify the issue better.
Not very good answers but fast help is fast help. Next time you have a question like this, hit the + tab, beside the edit button. Creates a new section, instead of putting your new stuff in an old section. --SwankyPants (talk) 21:14, 11 April 2021 (MDT)
There is no issue using a title/topic that already exists. "Some Questions" is befitting place to ask....some questions!
As said though, Talk Pages are where you can go. If you land a talk page that isn't appropriate, I hope our user base kindly directs you to the appropriate one. Users use to link the correct pages but I am not sure how things go these days; a lot of hammers get waved about.
If you are referencing something that exists already i.e. tv show, movie, etc, you most likely need to add a {{Copyright Disclaimer}}. Which it looks like your Blacklight Predator (5e Class) already has one, and you aren't being asked to add anything at this point. It is letting others know your source for information.

Homebrewing Subclasses and Subraces for an existing Homebrew Class

I've been hanging around looking at some of the homebrew here for quite a few years now, with little actually making of my own. The other day I thought about trying and making a couple subraces for a homebrew race that I thought could do with more, but then I realised that as said race was locked it probably wouldn't be a good idea to add subraces directly to it. Then, today I thought about perhaps trying to make a subclass or two for an existing homebrew class, but then as well as thinking against it but remembering the previous time. I then thought - would it be possible to have a separate page for a homebrew subrace/class for a homebrew race/class, similar to how we have those for existing races and classes? If, what would be the recommended thing for me to do? Flamechar33 . . 17:49, 20 September 2020 (BST)

Creating all the homebrew entries is not really good, because you need to use the homebrew page anyway for the reference. For this reason, everything should be accessible from the main page for the homebrew creation. --Green Dragon (talk) 14:16, 20 September 2020 (MDT)
What I think GD means is that if you make your own sub(race/class) for an already homebrew race or class, it will end up as an orphaned page because there aren't any DPLs for sub-parts of homebrew races/classes. Although, this could be rectified easily by just adding an "other/uncategorized" section to 5e Subclasses, and there is already such a section for 5e Subraces. If you make your own sub-part for a homebrew page, though, I think the general preference is for it to be added to the existing homebrew page for that race or class. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 15:12, 20 September 2020 (MDT)
Ok, I understand. Sorry for the late answer/thanks, and thanks! Flamechar33 . . 19:58, 24 September 2020 (BST)

Intentionally Collaborative Environment or Campaign Development

I'm interested in starting an environment or campaign development of "Sunken Rlyeh" which is H.P. Lovecraft's city where dead Cthulhu waits dreaming... I have developed some ideas about the nature of this underwater city, its inhabitants, and some special rules pertaining to interactions and the city's non-Euclidean geometry. I've also made some encounter tables and a table of city locations/structures. The concept is that below the surface of a prime material ocean, at the point farthest from any surface landmass, is a gate to the Elemental Plane of Water. On the other side of the gate is the city of Rlyeh, which sank and reformed itself as an underwater sphere. The sunken city is dark and sinister and slimy, and filled with many horrific denizens (but appropriate for the level of the adventuring party). The encounter tables include one for the prime material ocean surface, a deep water table appropriate for either side of the gate area, and one for the city itself. The encounters include creatures from standard 5e material, as well as many D&D Wiki creatures. I am hopeful that others would contribute significantly to this effort, especially those who have submitted Lovecraft-based creatures and races. Has anything like this been attempted, and has it worked out? Any suggestions/advice? If it seems doable and has a chance to succeed, how might I get started?

--Dain (talk) 22:20, 28 October 2020 (MDT)

Hello there Dain, it is good to see that you are interested in starting up a large project. Working with other users on large scale projects will be difficult, but has been done before. Off the top of my head, a notable example I remember are the several issues of D&D Wiki Magazine, which went well, but has since fallen off in recent times. To start making the project a reality, I would suggest reaching out to users who have recently make Lovecraft inspired homebrew on their talk pages and ask them whether they would be interested in working together to create the campaign/environment. Besides that, you can also reach out to a bunch of other users on the D&D Wiki discord. For more information on the discord, you can check out the D&D Wiki Social Media page. Either way, gl on the project.--Blobby383b (talk) 21:18, 5 November 2020 (MST)
Should I attempt contact via the discussion page or the relevant material, or via the original contributor's "talk button" on the history page, or some other means? Or does it matter how I do it? I'm assuming that the person I'm attempting to contact will get an email from the dandwiki alerting them to a message? Thanks... --Dain (talk) 20:41, 6 November 2020 (MST)
I would suggest reaching out to them on their talk/discussion page, but it doesn't matter too much how you go about contacting the user. If a user has not disabled emails from the wiki and has watched a page, when you contact them on a page they have watched they should get an email.--Blobby383b (talk) 19:18, 7 November 2020 (MST)

Captcha problems

When trying to create a page, D&D Wiki asks me to solve four captchas at once. Even after doing so multiple times it still won't let me post. I suspect this might have something to do with the captchas appearing both above and below on the same page: this screenshot shows what I mean. 2405:8100:8000:5CA1:0:0:C9:A916 13:06, 13 November 2020 (MST)

Hey there anonymous, while it unclear what exactly caused D&D Wiki to cause you to solve so many captchas, you can resolve the issue by creating an account as users don't have to solve captchas. You can create by yourself or contact blue dragon on their talk page as they are the admin in charge of technical stuff on the wiki with your IP address / desired username / ect. info. I am sorry that you have issues with the wiki's captcha and wish you the best.--Blobby383b (talk) 12:55, 17 November 2020 (MST)
Did you change the same thing with adding content into the page? --Green Dragon (talk) 11:12, 18 November 2020 (MST)

This is the same anonymous user again. If the solution is to require a user to create an account in order to create a page, why bother with this step at all? I don't know who here has access to LocalSettings, but it's fairly easy to deny a user group the permission to create a page. [1] Fewer users would be alienated that way, I imagine.
I appreciate your input Green Dragon but I'm not sure what you're asking, and I'm not very sure if you're addressing Blobby383b or myself. To clarify, I have this problem whenever I try to create any new page. When I try to edit an already existing page (like this one), I only receive one set of captchas and those captchas are able to resolve. 2A0B:F4C2:2:0:0:0:0:1 07:57, 19 November 2020 (MST)

Unregistered users can create pages. I just am asking if you tried the steps you did above with adding information into the page? Maybe it has something to do with your cookie settings, or forms. --Green Dragon (talk) 10:27, 20 November 2020 (MST)

Redirect Retraction.

I'll cut to the chase. I'm am relatively new and barely understand the mechanics of this wiki. I have contributed already because I know basics of other wikis, but I'm figuring out the finer details on this one. Anyhow, I have finished reading the editing help page and learned a lot of what I needed to know. So I redirected an empty template my page made to a category. I realized the further I read on what a template does. Once I try to edit said template I realized what I've just done. So I would like to request all redirects going to the "Category:Mark of Prestige" category I made be removed/wiped or however this is resolved. Please and thank you.

PS. I am working on an empty page for a setting, so I thought I'd spend my time working on it because I am currently in a campaign for said setting. It's more work than I expected, but I'll get it done.

Thanks for letting us know about the issues you have been having. It seems like the major issue was that in 5e, there are blessings so you can use the already existing template and formatting to create homebrew blessing for a campaign setting, but marks of prestige are an original thing that is only really used in the Hyrule campaign setting, and as such, a template did not exist for it. Because of this, I have gone ahead and made a template for it, moved the mark of prestige page so it has the (Hyrule Supplement) identifier, and fixed up how the Marks of Prestige (Hyrule Supplement) and Hero of Hyrule (Hyrule Supplement) work. In the future, you can use the existing formatting on Hero of Hyrule (Hyrule Supplement) for all new marks of prestige.--Blobby383b (talk) 10:13, 20 November 2020 (MST)

Upsetting Article

Hello moderators,

I am writing you concerning the following article:

It was brought to my attention after one of my fellow players was looking for information regarding her race in DnD, she had stumbled onto this article believing it to be the official class. We’ve all made this mistake at least once, we’re not concerned with her not recognizing this wiki’s purpose. Instead we (her entire DnD group) were appalled with the content of this page. This race is written with an inherent sexist bias that is unrealistic and harmful. It isn’t super clear on your Warning Policy page if this sort of speech is accepted.

Here are a few of the upsetting ideals written into this race:

“Hence, the lizardfolk have inferior endurance, especially the females, who have even more serious problems metabolizing lactic acid. In a long fight, a lizardfolk will tire faster than a human and will probably retreat if the fight isn't won in a couple of minutes.”

“An average male requires an average of 8 hours of sleep, while a female requires an average of 10 hours of sleep, although many females prefer to sleep for 12 hours.”

"Without exception, within the same species, male lizardfolk are larger, heavier, stronger, faster, more durable, more resistant to pain, fatigue and sickness, and less easily tired than female lizardfolk. Additionally, male lizardfolk have higher average intelligence and are wiser than female lizardfolk. This is due to the need for the males to do the hunting and fighting for the tribe. Additionally, male lizardfolk naturally live longer than females, but the habits of war and violence tend to equalize their lifespans with the females. In no case does a female lizardfolk ever control a tribe, clan, or village; the purpose of the female lizardfolk consorts is to make heirs, not to rule. If a chief were to die and a daughter or wife was his only relative, then the strongest males would fight to see which one of them was the strongest, and the winner would become the new chief.

It should be obvious that male lizardfolk are excellent front line soldiers. With more strength and constitution than an average human, they ought to make great fighters. At home, they are excellent hunters and fishers, and can apply their hunting skills to aid whatever party of adventurers they may join. The males can also make skilled rangers.

Female lizardfolk are often unable to take care of themselves, as they aren't very good at competing with males for hunting or fishing grounds; the very few that have ever tried have been outclassed in every way. As a result, they have to find a mate or else depend on male relatives. In isolation, a female lizardfolk actually would be able to do some hunting or fishing, but even the least competition from a male will be enough to see her outdone. Female lizardfolk are more flexible than their male counterparts, but not nearly so much so that they would get any bonus to dexterity because of it.

For game purposes, to get the stats of a female lizardfolk, first calculate the stats normally for the male, and then factor in the following:

-4 strength, -4 constitution, -2 intelligence, -2 wisdom. Female lizardfolk also only have +2 natural armor instead of the male +5 natural armor (in common lizardfolk, but in no case do females have more than, or as much natural armor as the males, no matter the species.) Females can only hold their breath for only three times its constitution score before drowning (instead of 4X for the male.) Females by necessity, are supposed to lay eggs and raise children, thus ensuring the continued survival of the race. Biologically, this necessitates certain physiological adjustments that may impede the females from combat, but in no way reduce their value to the race; in fact, their value actually increases in some ways because they can lay eggs. Lizardfolk females are acutely aware of this, and very few females will live their lives without reproducing.

In comparison to a human, a typical female lizardfolk has -2 strength, constitution, wisdom, and -4 intelligence (minimum of 3). In an adventuring party, this can prove to be quite a problem. Being neither good at combat nor skilled in magic, the female lizardfolk would at first glance appear to be a liability for any party. However, this weakness can be turned into a strength... of a sort. Having little combat proficiency frees the female lizardfolk PCs from having to develop such skills, enabling them to class as bards and rogues and develop other skills. With little need to give them fighting skills, one can develop a female character's non-combat skills, and use them to the party's advantage. Female Paludian lizardfolk bards receive a +2 charisma bonus upon entering that class and lose it when leaving it. This reflects the exotic, eye-catching nature of the females; this is only able to be exploited by a class which requires the female to be looked at and paid attention to. For a female fighter or paladin, appearance and grace matter less, and the rest of the world knows it, so only the bard would logically receive a bonus for being eye-catching in a performance. Skills for the female lizardfolk that are worth focusing on include Balance, Diplomacy, Disguise, Escape Artist, Gather information, Move Silently,Open Lock, Perform, and Sleight of hand. Chances are, one can easily fit an exotic, alluring female lizardfolk into a party, especially if one's party needs someone agile and charismatic (while there is no particular bonus for dexterity, it ought to be focused on in order to make the PC worthwhile.) These can be good PCs because they can excel in certain niche roles that a party might need from time to time, such as having to send someone to balance on a narrow plank in order to get an item, or having to sneak through a dark room.

During the prime mating season (spring, roughly 1/4 of the year), females receive a special +4 modifier to certain charisma checks to represent the release of pheromones and their greater desire to mate (though females always wish to mate more than the males do, but even more so during mating season), but it wears off after the season ends. In the wider world, female lizardfolk are considered to be rare, exotic and eye-catching, whereas the ferocious males simply intimidate and frighten others. Hence, the outside observer can see a dichotomy between the two roles of the lizardfolk sexes; male strength vs female exoticness.

There is one native Paludian class which allows female lizardfolk to circumvent some of their disadvantages, that of the Hierodule, a divine casting class with no offensive capability. The education required for this class enables the females to avoid the -2 intelligence and -2 wisdom penalty, and this will apply only for the female if her first class is that of Heirodule. For no other class does the training for being a Heirodule apply, so if the female should switch classes, the penalties to intelligence and wisdom apply."

“Like all other species of lizardfolk, the males are much heavier, larger, stronger, and more durable in every way than the females, who only weigh between 90-120 pounds (on average), are at least a foot shorter, are nowhere near as strong, and have softer skin, weaker bones, and less resistance to pain, fatigue, and injury. The females also have a lesser capacity for logic and reason, being creatures of hormones, feelings, and passions. The common lizardfolk are the most numerous type of in Paludia, forming a plurality of the entire lizardfolk population in Paludia.”

I understand the desire to create races that mimic animals and cultures but no animal puts this strong of a disadvantage on all females. This article appears to be written with a ridiculous amount of harmful language and ideals towards females. It explicitly states that women of this race are useless for all things other than mating, it frequently uses the problematic work “exotic” and only gives women any use if they are used as a sex object as a bard and any advantage they get from that goes away if they leave the party. I’m not sure if the class started this way or was added later. Regardless, it seems inappropriate to have an article like this for a game that should be about inclusion and acceptance.

I am posting this for all of the moderators so the article can be reviewed. I understand if this isn’t found to be against your community guidelines but please do consider the harm this type of article might impose on someone who might be quick to make parallels with human females or young females who might believe this about themselves.

Thank you —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ConcernedViewer (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

Hi there ConcernedViewer, I agree with your analysis of this page. Looking at the talk page, it seems the intent of the sexual dimorphism was to mirror the size advantage that real-life male monitor lizards have over the females, but I agree with you that the implementation of this is problematic to say the least. I'm going to trim down or remove the issues you pointed out. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 21:07, 3 December 2020 (MST)

Steel Balls (5e Equipment)

Would a third party mind assisting with the appropriate use of a copyright disclaimer. I'd rather not edit war. Red Leg Leo (talk) 09:56, 10 December 2020 (MST)

Page Lock

Good Evening, I make homebrew here specifically for a 5e westmarch. I submit it there and have it approved, and balance it according to the mods suggestions. After repeatedly asking for people NOT to edit my pages, because they do give useful feedback, and after being ignored many times. I would like to request that my pages and be locked from editing outside of d&dwiki admins and myself. As going through the process due to edits from other users would be a pain, and having to go through an edit war would not be desirable. I appreciate feedback, but I would prefer if people used the discussion part of the page, before blatantly editing it. ChckenNoodlez|talk 8:10pm, 2, 16, 2021

Hi there ChckenNoodlez, you should consider moving that feat and subclass to a sub-userpage, perhaps User:ChckenNoodlez/Revised Shield Master and User:ChckenNoodlez/Revised Champion. In general, pages in the main space are open to edit by most everyone, barring a few exceptions. If you copy that content to your userspace, other users will not be allowed to edit them (or at least, to do so would be considered very rude), except for admins to remove content that breaks sitewide rules. If you need help, please let me or another helper know. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 19:22, 16 February 2021 (MST)

Help with a deleted page

Hi there, I had a class called warlord, variant (5e Class). It was deleted at 17:56, 8 January 2021 by Geodude671 according to the deletion log. If I had to guess it would be due to an unfinished article being dormant for too long. Would it be possible for it to be undeleted, at least temporarily, so that I can save it, as it had some ideas I really liked that I would like to use for the future. Thanks for your time.

Potential Edit War

On this race that has been my primary contribution to the wiki and that I have been working on slowly for over a year due to health complications, an ip/user by the name of FlickerTheFlareon has completely steamrolled over my request to run edits past me before they are posted for the mutual benefit of the race and the wiki. She then went on to make several very imbalanced buffs to the race and requested that they not be changed but on several of her pages on their earliest versions, she asked that no one edit that except for her. Furthermore, she then put on her profile that she "pulled her weight" on the race. I intend to revert all changes to the race made by this ip/user, but I decided it would be best to notify the administration beforehand as I expect an edit war to ensue. TeslaFistforge (talk) 13:06, 24 February 2021 (MST)

One of the wiki policies being "Be Bold" means that editing is not always a process of alerting an OP. And as the history of that page will show, an admin removed the mark of ownership on that because this is a community where any works in the mainspace are valid targets for editing, especially if incomplete.--Yanied (talk) 21:09, 24 February 2021 (MST)

Heroic Spirit Edit War

There seems to be an edit war brewing over Heroic Spirit (5e Class). --SlaadSack (talk) 13:06, 13 March 2021 (MST)

Formatting Issue

I have no idea where else to take this, so here goes. On Bestiary (Berserk Supplement), the tedious column length could easily be resolved by shifting the Miscellaneous Creatures section to the right side of the page. The only problem is, I don't have the slightest idea how to accomplish that, or even if it's possible, and would really appreciate some help.--Ref3rence (talk) 10:01, 22 April 2021 (MDT)

Many many thanks, Blobby.--10:28, 22 April 2021 (MDT)
Glad to help. Also, I don't know whether you want the two sections to be parallel, so if you want here are two ways to go about doing it. If you don't want the table of contents to show, you can use __NOTOC__ or to make the two sections parallel you could add line breaks(<br>) right before miscellaneous creatures. Either way, gl on the campaign setting.--Blobby383b (talk) 10:32, 22 April 2021 (MDT)

Overlapping Images

So much for formatting helper. I keep seeing this issue show up, where even though the image is formatted exactly how it should be(div class, in the {{5e Image}} thing), the image shows up over text. Examples:

I see no rhyme or reason between these, as more than half the time, that formatting should work(I steal it from functional pages), but here I am regardless. Is it just because of the image holders? I’ve never seen this issue solved anywhere, and I’m really curious if it can be. Thanks. --SwankyPants (talk) 13:13, 22 April 2021 (MDT)

When using the image resizer, you need to use flex:none after the 5e image part as the image resizer already makes the image float right. The confusion problems comes from the fact that without the image resizer, you need float:right instead.--Blobby383b (talk) 16:20, 22 April 2021 (MDT)
Well, that certainly is confusing. Thanks for the tip, and the fixes. --SwankyPants (talk) 16:44, 22 April 2021 (MDT)


Like to report issue of the page being deleted. The page was a fun homebrew race and was used on a dnd rp server of over 100 people.

I was originally going to make a new topic, but seeing as we already have a page resurrection request, I might as well put this here.

Template:5e Creature Issues

The 5e Creature template currently has some glaring accessibility flaws, as outlined on its respective talk page. I was originally going to let this be a "get to it when you can" issue due to how niche they are, but as the daunting scale of my current project approaches, my perception of the necessity of this issue has greatly increased, thus I am bringing it here. If a solution is already being worked toward and I'm just being obnoxious, I apologize, but if not, please take a look as soon as you get the chance.--Ref3rence (talk) 11:06, 29 June 2021 (MDT)

Help with a Deleted Page

Recently I started building a character, and using the Sorcerer, Elemental Variant class. But, one of the page of the Inferno cantrip (an important part of the class) has been deleted: specifically the Dagger version. According to the log, it was deleted on 08:41, 24 December 2018 by ConcealedLight. I would like to know why the page was deleted, and if it would be possible to un-delete it (even if temporarily), or have a "copy" send to me. Thanks for the attention.

Help with Armor/Weapon Listings for Campaign Settings

Yeah I'm just generally confused as to how one goes about formatting for Armor and Weapons. From what I can tell (from looking at other creator's lists of armor and weapons), it looks like it just draws from all Homebrew or SRD, but I only want specific weapons/armors in the setting. How does one process these lists into finer detail than just slamming every Homebrew weapon that exists into my campaign? --DrGuest (talk) 22:55, 16 September 2021 (MDT)

Non-admin here, a decent example of how to format that kind of thing would be the weapons section of this page, which can be converted into a similar armor formatting simply by changing out what pages are linked to and costs.--Ref3rence (talk) 23:02, 16 September 2021 (MDT)
Wow, quick response. Thanks for the example for that, now I'm just wondering why most layouts aren't like this.--DrGuest (talk) 01:02, 17 September 2021 (MDT)
Most campaigns don't have a specific theme for equipment to follow, so giving players more options becomes preferable.--Ref3rence (talk) 08:43, 17 September 2021 (MDT)

Why doesn't this wiki have a mobile view option available?

If there are any more page which you want locked, just let us know! --Green Dragon (talk) 09:40, 22 October 2021 (MDT)

My Feat:

Hello i createt the feats Scales of Bahamut (5e Feat) Armor of Bahamut (5e Feat) but lost the permissions to edit becouse User:Lavie startet a editing war and changed it all times, i try to talk with him but the problem his now where he got what he want and the feat is stuck by the changes he did i have no chace thet he accept but i want that the feat i createt is that again how i createt it or get turned off, I have a strong perfectionist side that makes it almost a shame for me that the feat I created was so "ruined". I hope for your understanding. ShieldingPaladin7 (talk) 13:09, 31 October 2021 (MDT)

Those pages have been locked for a duration of one week so that all involved users can work out their differences on the talk page. Lavie's edits to both pages were constructive - they improved the state of those pages, be that in grammar, spelling improvements, or proper capitalization. Reverting such edits is not in the spirit of D&D Wiki, as it would restore the page to a worse state.
I would remind you that every page in the public spaces of this wiki belongs to the wiki as a whole, not one single user. As stated below every single editing window on this wiki, "If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here." If you wish for the pages you create to be yours alone, I would suggest making a user subpage instead.
Upon expiry of the page locks, I expect this dispute will be resolved. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 11:11, 31 October 2021 (MDT)


I noticed a new vandal just now: --Gdd4270 (talk) 14:42, 26 November 2021 (MST)

Yeah, already taken care of.--Yanied (talk) 14:43, 26 November 2021 (MST)
Great. --Gdd4270 (talk) 14:43, 26 November 2021 (MST)

Please protect this page

Please could someone protect Arcanetarakk, B8 (5e Equipment) from anonymous edits? I already added {{Protection Against IP Edits}}. --Gdd4270 (talk) 17:52, 26 November 2021 (MST)

I don't see any high traffic vandalism there to warrant it?--Yanied (talk) 15:12, 27 November 2021 (MST)
But I consider it complete. Also, I don't want any. --Gdd4270 (talk) 15:14, 27 November 2021 (MST)
I see Blobby has already done it. In my opinion unless it is infrastructure or has contentious editing, blocking it up isn't really necessary.--Yanied (talk) 15:16, 27 November 2021 (MST)

My class concept was deleted.

i made the witch 4th variant and was working on it day by day when i got home from work. i logged on today to make more for it since i had been in a kind of creative rut on it and found out my page was deleted. is there anyway i can recover what i had so i can at least put it on another website where it wont just randomly be deleted while i am working on it?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Guyudntknow (talkcontribs) .

I made a user page for the page that you can work on here. The original page has also been restored--Yanied (talk) 15:11, 27 November 2021 (MST)
Hey, just restored the Witch, 4th Variant (5e Class) page. Since it spent 2 weeks with that deletion tag it just kinda got deleted without anybody taking too good of a look, I assume. For future reference, you can remove tags if the problems are solved/if you're still working on it. Thanks for stopping by, and sorry to put you through that. --SwankyPants (talk) 15:12, 27 November 2021 (MST)
I am sorry for the deletion, and as Swanky said, you could remove the deletion tag if a page's problems are being worked on. Besides that, when you are logged on, you can go to Preferences at the top right and near the bottom of the User Profile tab is a setting for "Email me when a page or a file on my watchlist is changed" which can allow you to stay up to date with pages you watch (by clicking the watch button at the top of any page on the wiki).--Blobby383b (talk) 16:06, 27 November 2021 (MST)
No problem thank you guys for restoring it. yeah i get that it was a hectic week for me had to move half a house out half a house in ontop of working and checking on family in a hospital I didnt have alot of time to check the page until tonight when i had a game where i work on it with some friends and we noticed it was gone. i am most likely gonna use the one on my profile then if you guys wanna delete the other one and i can just send them the new link to the one on my profile that we can work on. sorry i didn't notice it sooner (Guyudntknow (talk) 16:53, 27 November 2021 (MST) = Guyudntknow 18:53pm, 27 november 2021 (EST))
You mean to keep the user page one? That can be arranged. It is a more lenient method if you do not have a lot of time so you can work on it on your own pace and take it to the main pages when you are done. --Yanied (talk) 11:59, 28 November 2021 (MST)

IP creating unacceptable spam page created Ogre Shit this morning. Another possible IP vandal. I added a {{delete}} tag already. Please delete the page. --Gdd4270 (talk) 07:56, 28 November 2021 (MST)

I changed the {{delete}} to {{needsadmin}}. --Gdd4270 (talk) 08:22, 28 November 2021 (MST)

I am slowly returning to this wiki after a hiatus, and there seems to be much more vandalism now. Is this some sort of co-ordinated effort of disruption? Marasmusine (talk) 10:08, 28 November 2021 (MST)
Seems to be one or two people that pop in every now and then, rarely together. We've tried what we can but it seems like they're using VPNs or something, so there's no easy way to get rid of them. Nothing we can't deal with, though. --SwankyPants (talk) 10:34, 28 November 2021 (MST)
Who are they? --Gdd4270 (talk) 15:19, 5 December 2021 (MST)
People spending their time unproductively now that the holidays are here maybe? Nah, just kidding. These people were already like that before the holidays. Some have grudges, others are passing by. --Yanied (talk) 11:59, 28 November 2021 (MST)
I am pretty sure that I want to see a "pelican" themed creature, that could be really interesting and fit the tendency or some of the more notable vandalism :). --Green Dragon (talk) 14:37, 29 November 2021 (MST)
"Pelican"? What do you mean. --Gdd4270 (talk) 04:18, 30 November 2021 (MST)
Inside joke.--Yanied (talk) 12:05, 30 November 2021 (MST)
Ok. --Gdd4270 (talk) 15:19, 5 December 2021 (MST)

Searching Special:WantedPages

I know that wikimedia no longer updates Wanted Pages, but is there a way to search for red links by what text they include? It's not the most important thing in the world, but it would help a lot if I could see what pages I still needed in settings that use DPLs for creature overviews in a single list instead of sorting through every other page for red links (especially for pages that could be named two different things).--Ref3rence (talk) 17:35, 3 December 2021 (MST)

I don't believe there is a way to search the Special Page sorry. I do now that the majority of campaign settings don't use DPLs for creating their content and simply have red links, so it is easier for them to identify what is incomplete (and most people don't know about DPLs). Because of this, I would recommend leaving notes on pages to keep track of what hasn't been completed yet, possibly even in <!-- Comments --> if you don't want it to show. --Blobby383b (talk) 20:45, 3 December 2021 (MST)
Darn. Thanks for looking into it and responding anyways!--Ref3rence (talk) 13:29, 4 December 2021 (MST)

Separation Needed

me and another user are reaching a boiling point and I just want my feat to and their spell to be separate entries --Brostodes (talk) 11:40, 7 December 2021 (MST)

Alright, the last thing we need to do is glorify these people with pages, specifically designed to list what they've done. I'm deleting these and recommending you don't make more. --SwankyPants (talk) 20:27, 13 December 2021 (MST)
Just confirming what Swanky said above, thanks for informing us but this is not how we do things here. — Geodude Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 20:29, 13 December 2021 (MST)
