Welcome to D&D Wiki![edit]

Welcome!

Hello Quincy, 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.

Questions

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.

Formatting

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.

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).

Classes In Your User Space[edit]

Hey Quincy, I just noticed all the classes you have saved have appeared under 5e Classes as opposed to 5e Incomplete Classes. If you don't mind, could you add a short needsbalance template for them, or better yet add the previous versions of the templates the class had to them if you still have them?--Blobby383b (talk) 09:05, 16 January 2018 (MST)

Better yet, just remove the entire footer please. --Green Dragon (talk) 09:10, 16 January 2018 (MST)
Okay, done. I've taken out the footers from all the classes I've saved, and now they shouldn't appear under 5e Classes. Thanks for the heads up. Quincy (talk) 10:07, 16 January 2018 (MST)

Dawn Of Worlds Game[edit]

I was wondering if i could tell you what i want to do and you make the map changes if thats to much i really need to know how maps work.Alucarddragonborn (talk) 10:56, 14 February 2018 (MST)

That's not too much at all. If that's what you're comfortable with doing, then sure I can work with that. Quincy (talk) 11:17, 14 February 2018 (MST)

Airbender Class Template Maintenance[edit]

Hey Quincy, I saw that you made some comments on the viability of a class that I am working on, namely Airbender (5e Class). I have not had time to do a lot with that homebrew, so it was someone else that came in and made changes. None of the content currently on the page was created by me. I am wondering if there is also a page for a 4e class Airbender, and someone mistakenly edited mine instead. Either way, someone made edits to the page and added content that I did not approve. I cannot locate their talk page to ask them not to edit my content. Is there a way for me to do that? Thank you! Sparrowhawk701 (talk) 23:19, 4 June 2018 (MDT)

Hi Sparrowhawk; I'm not quite sure what your issue is. You don't appear to have created that page, or even edited it, and looking through your contributions, you don't appear to have ever created such a class (not even in your deleted contributions). Can you please clarify the issue you're running into?
While I'm here, it appears you've also run into a common misconception, that being that you can call a page "yours" (in the ownership sense). It is long-standing policy that no one can claim sole ownership of a page; you can read more about this on the pages Help:Attribution Policy and Help:Legal. — Geodude671 Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 23:24, 4 June 2018 (MDT)
I'll propose that page for deletion; while you're waiting for it to be deleted, perhaps you can start making your class at another title (perhaps at User:Sparrowhawk701/Airbender?) and move it there when the current version of that page is deleted? — Geodude671 Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 23:35, 4 June 2018 (MDT)

Spamming align="center" seems like it may not be the best way, but it's essentially what Template:5e Class Features does. - Guy 12:11, 25 August 2018 (MDT)

Yes, that's perfect! Thank you very much for your help. Quincy (talk) 12:13, 25 August 2018 (MDT)

Thanks![edit]

It was truly my pleasure but you're welcome nonetheless. Quincy (talk) 18:33, 1 November 2018 (MDT)

Request for Adminship[edit]

You are a prolific editor on this site, which you clearly care a lot about, and I feel you would fulfill the role of an admin well. Would you like me to nominate you? — Geodude671 Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 09:09, 5 November 2018 (MST)

Yes please! It would be an utmost honor! Quincy (talk) 15:18, 5 November 2018 (MST)
I have posted your RfA here. — Geodude671 Chatmod.png (talk | contribs | email)‎‎ . . 11:23, 6 November 2018 (MST)

Administration[edit]

All aboard the S.S. Adminship!

Welcome to Adminship. You are now part of "The Face" of D&D Wiki. You have more burden on yourself now that you are an admin because users will be looking at you for editing help, knowledge about pages, etc. Make sure to familiarize yourself with Meta Pages to help address this burden. I recommend you take a look at Special:ListGroupRights if you have not already. Some of the new feature's uses follow: You can now delete pages, protect pages, rollback edits, block users and IP's, edit every page, patrol edits, and do a couple more minor things.

  • Deleting pages is normally done through Category:Candidates for Deletion. Anything with a good reason to be deleted on that page should be deleted. Other times pages should be deleted is in the case of vandalism, spam, or even when someone makes a page and after a few edits they either blank the page or replace it with something like "Please delete this". If this page consisted of close to just the preload it is fine to just delete it.
  • Protecting pages has quite a few different times when it should be used. Pages should be protected according to the author's wishes (with Template:Locked Page added to the top of the page in question), in case of conflict (with Template:Temp Locked Page added to the top of the page in question), in case of OGC published materials (with Template:OGL Top added to the top of the page in question and Template:OGL Bottom added to the bottom), or finally if the page is a vital part of D&D Wiki's organization. Also, if it deals with D&D Wiki's organization the page needs to be protected. For Example 3.5e Homebrew is protected from all non-sysop edits. No template needs to be added to pages if they are part of D&D Wiki's organization (even though some do exist like Template:Admin Locked Page)
  • Blocking a user or IP should be used with respect to policy. To block someone just click "block" (found on Recent Changes, the diff in question, the userpage, etc) and fill out the corresponding form. For a typical vandalism attack I normally block the user for two weeks. Certain things demand a longer block and others a shorter. No standards have been set for block lengths so use your best judgment.
  • Editing every page on D&D Wiki mostly means you can now edit the 5e SRD, 3.5e SRD and the MSRD. Feel free to edit them if inaccuracies are found. If interested further please look at their To-Do lists; I am sure your help will be appreciated.

Now that you are an admin I would say more burden is placed on you, but I really hope you enjoy being an admin and I hope you decide to stay around on D&D Wiki for a while more to come. Welcome to Adminship. Again, you're now part of "The Face" of D&D Wiki. --Green Dragon (talk) 13:58, 13 November 2018 (MST)

Ohmygosh, thank you so very much! I won't let you down! Quincy (talk) 15:16, 13 November 2018 (MST)
Welcome to the team. Was nice to have a RfA that didn't involve some drama. Looking forward to your continued contributions and if you require some assistance feel free to ask me or another admin in User_talk:Admin. —ConcealedLightChatmod.png (talk) 06:58, 14 November 2018 (MST)
Thanks ConcealedLight! Quincy (talk) 15:52, 14 November 2018 (MST)
Kudos on your RfA Quincy! I look forward to another user helping with janitorial work :p ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 10:19, 14 November 2018 (MST)
Thanks BSFM! Likewise, I look forward to working with you in my new capacity. Quincy (talk) 15:52, 14 November 2018 (MST)
Thanks for understanding that my concerns about your RfA were not the same as concerns for you being an admin. Welcome to the S.S. Adminship, my crowning artistic achievement :) May we set sail for adventure and friendship...--GamerAim Chatmod.png (talk) 16:00, 14 November 2018 (MST)
Thanks, GamerAim! I have a feeling we're going to get along just fine! It's a cute picture btw. Quincy (talk) 16:02, 14 November 2018 (MST)
Congratulations Quincy on your RFA I do hope you take to being an admin well and do try not to overwork your self! In any case, may the winds of magic all ways be In your favor!--Erlek Thunder weaver (talk | contribs | email) 05:31, 15 November 2018 (MST)
