Welcome to D&D Wiki![edit]


Hello Artif, and welcome to D&D Wiki! I hope you are enjoying D&D Wiki and have been finding the information here useful. Before you start contributing, we recommend you make sure your user preferences match your preferences.


If you have any questions about a specific page please ask it on that page's talk page. If you have a D&D-related question, you can ask it on DnD Discussions. Everything relating to D&D Wiki's administration can be asked here. If you need to contact another user, please use their talk page.


Syntax 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 basic wiki formatting and should provide quite a few useful links that explain more specific areas of wiki formatting. Help:Portal also provides detailed explanation of information important specifically to this community.


A strong and welcoming community exists on D&D Wiki, and I'm sure you will find us friendly. To enable the community to function, a number of policies are in effect. Most importantly, we follow and expect you to follow Wikipedia's guidelines on civility and etiquette when discussing anything. As most work has multiple authors, please do not delete content without following our removal process. When posting a comment on a talk page, please ensure you sign your name with four tildes (~~~~) or by clicking on the signature icon (Signature icon.png). This will automatically produce your name and the date. I hope you come to enjoy D&D Wiki and the community. Welcome again, you are now a D&D Wikian. --SirSprinkles (talk) 03:12, 9 August 2021 (MDT)

Hey, hopefully you see this, I am the person who made the Grimoire Summoner page, I wasn't sure on how else to try to contact you. To cut it short I am a little on the edge for the changes made to the class and I am still actively self testing and looking to make changes to the class when I can. But since you didn't blatantly try to make the class OP and instead wanted to add a little something to it we could try to work something out about adding another archetype. So I am going to delete the added material soon, but feel free to post onto the discussion page on the grimoire summoner class page, and we can try to get something going, that we can both agree on. If this doesn't sit well will you feel free to make a variant class and make self changes there instead.

Content Based on Other Works[edit]

If you make content based on another person's work, you must add in a copyright disclaimer with the owner and the franchise. {{Copyright Disclaimer|owner=owner name|franchise=franchise name}} . --Lavie (talk) 17:38, 2 October 2021 (MDT)

Bro what the fuck, I was working on putting it and you edited the page as I was editing it and it deleted 70% of everything I did. Don't edit my pages. --Artif (talk) 17:54, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
And you changed the "reason" my page isnt finished. Don't touch my things, I will fix them myself. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Artif (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.
Also, once you have posted content on this wiki, anyone can edit it. It's how the wiki works. No one user owns any page of the D&D Wiki, with the sole exception of user pages. --Lavie (talk) 18:01, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
Artif, I would recommend you read up on the Behavioral Policy, particularly the Civility and Language And Adult Theme sections. I would remind you that, as per D&D Wiki policy, and I quote, "If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here." This message is included in the editing window of every single page. The intent of D&D Wiki is that we all come together to improve pages as much as possible.
If you do not want to share the pages you have made, I suggest you request that they be moved to a user subpage, as stated in the Behavioral Policy's section on User Pages. If you would like to instead signify that the page you are working on is actively being worked on, so as to prevent future mishaps, the {{WIP}} or {{inuse}} templates can be placed on the page beforehand.
Thank you for your time, and welcome to the D&D Wiki. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 18:16, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
Its not the fact that he edited it. Its that he deleted half of my edits without any apology or anything other than 'It happens'. While also many times before, completely reverting any changes ive made to other pages, which were not even his in the first place. --Artif (talk) 18:25, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
She*, and I didn't delete anything of yours. I just put in the categories which you removed when you removed the preload. --Lavie (talk) 18:29, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
On this page? I'm glad that you added something that I was seconds away from doing with my edit. Over righting mine and in turn, it deleted everything I did. So yes, you kinda did delete it. --Artif (talk) 18:33, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
That would be because it does happen. Editing conflicts are uncommon, but not rare at all. I've also already informed you of how to avoid them - if someone sees a page with an In Use template, they'll know that it's actively being edited, and thus refrain from editing it. Note that this is not a reason to permanently leave an In Use template on a page - if that occurs, it will be removed once it becomes clear that the page is not in fact in use. See Improving, Reviewing, and Removing Templates for more information. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 18:36, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
Also, "once you have posted content on this wiki, anyone can edit it." this is just not correct? I've seen many pages that are not editable. --Artif (talk) 18:41, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
Certain pages have been protected from being edited, for various reasons ranging from vandalism to site infrastructure. I would highly recommend you read through the Help section to gain an understanding of the manner in which the wiki operates. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 18:43, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
Lavie, Please, Just get off my pages. You're still changing more. I ask you to not edit my pages so you go through each one to edit it? Are you kidding me --Artif (talk) 18:50, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
Now that I have WIP on every single one of my pages. I shouldnt see any changes, Like you said --Artif (talk) 18:50, 2 October 2021 (MDT)
I shall reiterate that the use case of the WIP template is simply to signify that a page is in the process of being constructed, and does not prohibit other edits, merely encourages users to be alert to the possibility of editing conflicts. I shall also clarify that the In Use template is only to be used in cases where a page will be actively undergoing a long edit, and is to be removed shortly after said edit is complete. I shall yet again encourage you to read through the Help section, and through all relevant links I have previously provided, so as to gain a proper understanding of the role of a member of the D&D Wiki community. --Nuke The Earth (talk) 02:44, 3 October 2021 (MDT)
