Speedy Deletion G7[edit]

As per here and here, users do not have the right to request deletion just because they don't want an article uploaded here anymore. I understand that some users may have disregarded our long-standing (if unwritten) policy on the matter, but I hope I am making it clear now that deleting articles either explicitly or implicitly in accordance with Wikipedia speedy deletion criteria G7 is disallowed on D&D Wiki. I hope that you will keep this in mind when [not] deleting articles in the future :) --GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 10:17, 1 October 2018 (MDT)

If it is expected that a page cannot be speedily deleted by author request—even with no other significant contributors, with potential copyright infringement, and with apparent consensus—you may want to (again) edit the portion of the proposed deletion policy which addresses this. Or, preferably, bring it up on the talk page.
Assuming we aren't following that policy yet, all we have to go on for this specific issue is precedent. Precedent for fulling deletion on this basis exists with dozens of different examples from several different administrators.
I still believe I took the right course of action in deleting the content you have restored. That said, one user (you) clearly disagrees with the deletion of that speedily deleted page (although I don't understand the rationale), so for only that reason I will refrain from taking any further action at this time. - Guy 11:30, 1 October 2018 (MDT)
It is worth noting that in the over six years which passed since the two cited precedents, there are dozens (maybe hundreds?) of more recent precedent examples of content being deleted by author request. In the absence of policy, we use precedent. Clearly precedent differs on this matter, which is part of the reason I wanted the input of yourself and others on the deletion policy I proposed: so conflicts like this would not arise. - Guy 15:24, 1 October 2018 (MDT)
I agree. Let's make that precedent for deleting from user requests a policy? Varkarrus (talk) 15:22, 1 October 2018 (MDT)
Content should not be deleted by atuhor request without supporting good reason, this has been long-standing policy. And the reason behind the massive D&D Wiki schism some years ago. People agree to post their content as per GFDL, and any deletion of their work is something we should only do as a major courtesy in exceptional situations. --SgtLion (talk) 15:33, 1 October 2018 (MDT)
Not exactly. D&D Wiki allows users to request their pages to be deleted, but not with G7. We use our own deletion policy, since our license states "If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here." Please add {{delete}} to the pages that are made by this sole contributor, but do not use G7. Also, no, that is not at all a reason for a number of users leaving D&D Wiki. It also seems to happen more often than not, so I don't give it any historical significance. --Green Dragon (talk) 23:59, 7 October 2018 (MDT)
Aye, duly noted. It seems my understanding of past events was pretty poor, leading to some faulty memory on this matter; Apologies~ --SgtLion (talk) 10:00, 9 October 2018 (MDT)
Okay, so based off this situation you want to resign from the administration? I will be sorry to see you leave! If you don't reply at all, I will take your answer for a "yes" and demote you. Sorry that you could not handle your role. --Green Dragon (talk) 08:58, 10 October 2018 (MDT)
Okay, you asked me to respond: GD said we can't speedy delete G7. I based my judgement on precedent. Now he confirmed it. It is policy. Your reason for deleting, as you reiterated on my RfA, was speedy deleting. There was no cause for speedy deleting it. That is why it was speedy undeleted. For more information, see above.--GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 06:35, 13 October 2018 (MDT)


Sorry I'm Late[edit]

Character Creation[edit]

Hey Guy, I know I've seen an alternate way to create characters but can't find it at the moment. I thought it was you working on something like this but I'unno no mo! If others reading this can help that'd be helpful too. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 13:35, 11 January 2019 (MST)

I’m looking for a character generation variant. It’s on someone’s user pages, though I’ve forgotten who obviously. There are guidelines for buying proficiencies, class features, etc. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 15:41, 11 January 2019 (MST)
Hours of searching I finally found what I was looking for an understand why I thought it was a user page. Quincy's Point System (5e Variant Rule) ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 18:55, 11 January 2019 (MST)
