Breadcrumb and Categories[edit]

Hey Ref3erence! I am cleaning up things and noticed that there's many pages you've created without these. They help navigate and sort/organize the wiki so if you could add them that would be great. All you need to do is copy and paste whats below if it isn't already on a page. I'd really appreciate the help in keeping the wiki cleaned up. ~ BigShotFancyMan 12:14, 2 July 2019 (MDT)

Moving Work In Progress Stands (5e Subclass)[edit]

Hey there reference, I am here to ask you about potentially moving the Work In Progress Stands (5e Subclass) to a better place. I was thinking that since there was a need for a workplace of some sorts to work on stands, why not make it so the WIP page is a subpage to Stand User Variant (5e Class) as opposed to having the page on its own? The new name in question would be Stand User Variant (5e Class)/Work In Progress Stands and a link to the subpage could be provided on the talk page of Stand User Variant (5e Class) saying that all incomplete ideas or thoughts on possible new stands could be put here. I hope you will consider the thought as it will make it much easier for users to find the WIP page and for users to find which class page the WIP page belongs to. Thanks again.--Blobby383b (talk) 14:39, 30 September 2019 (MDT)

Wraith Suit[edit]

You completely changed how my armor works! It's not per rest, it has a set recharge time, and when you screw with that you get a spell, not an armor. Next time you want to alter one of my articles that changes it mechanically, let me know. I write these things in this way for a reason, and you may not see the reason, but that doesn't mean you should just change it without talking to me first! Flamestarter (talk) 14:44, 25 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

While I understand where you're coming from, my main reason for changing it was because "once per day" is imprecise, though your most recent edit fixed that. The other reason was that mechanically a long rest is 8 hours long at least, thus players taking more than one long rest per day is very unlikely. Ultimately, I changed it to be somewhat more mechanically to how it works in X-Com, but that's subjective. If I did modify it to be more inline with your reasoning, I would use the wording "until the same time the next day", but it's up to you. -Ref3rence (talk) 14:57, 25 October 2019 (MDT)
Well, thank you, and I'm sorry for losing it. Just make sure to make a detailed note of what you've done and why in the discussion area, or I will undo it. I really hate it when I get edits snuck into my articles. Flamestarter (talk) 15:52, 25 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

My One for All Class[edit]

Hey there, I see you left a comment on my One for All page. I'm not sure how you located it since it is a user page, and since it is such I would prefer if it isn't edited. The class is going through lots of changes as it's playtested and worked on. While you're welcome to use it or suggest changes on the talk page, I request it not be edited directly. Thanks and sorry for the inconveniences. Celestial Mechanist (talk) 17:12, 26 October 2019 (MDT)

Homunculus (5e Class)[edit]

Ahoy Reference! This page has been untouched for months and I was curious if you have plans to return to it? Red Leg Leo (talk) 08:07, 3 March 2020 (MST)

I have been meaning to go back and continue working on it, I just got stuck in a rut on what to add. Rest assured, one day I will complete it. -Ref3rence (talk) 09:50, 3 March 2020 (MST)
Sounds good. If you could just touch up something that'd take it of a dpl that tracks WIPs or having it on a subuser page wouldn't require a WIP. Red Leg Leo (talk) 10:37, 3 March 2020 (MST)

Image attribution[edit]

Hey, I just wanted to give you some info on using images and properly giving attribution. If the image is a screenshot from a show or movie, that counts under Fair Use and should be uploaded to the wiki so that the link can't be broken. If it is an image from somewhere else, you should provide a link to the official page for the artist and attempt to link directly to the original image. --PJammaz (talk) 09:43, 4 April 2020 (MDT)

Sorry for the delay. While I understand the risk of redlinking, I don’t believe that having a fair use image not uploaded to the wiki counts as incorrect attribution. --Ref3rence (talk) 13:21, 5 April 2020 (MDT)
The important part is providing links to the original source. Just mentioning the name of the artist or series is not enough. --PJammaz (talk) 14:28, 5 April 2020 (MDT)
Fair enough. --Ref3rence (talk) 14:47, 5 April 2020 (MDT)

Variant Features for Homebrews[edit]

I'd disagree they aren't for homebrews. I think Soul Siphon doesn't need its own article though. But if there is a user war over what can be put on a page, I'd understand a user doing something like this. Red Leg Leo (talk) 12:02, 27 April 2020 (MDT)

It also looks as though three minutes took place before a users idea was thrown in the garbage. I've encouraged people in the past not to rush so quickly to delete or stamp IRR templates on newly created pages. Users would be more encouraged to collaborate if our community did the same. Red Leg Leo (talk) 12:05, 27 April 2020 (MDT)
I apologize for my conduct, the edit was hasty and unnecessarily hostile. My intent was that variant features for homebrew classes should be on their respective class page, not that they shouldn't exist at all, and that as such the content should be moved there, thus making the page redundant and deletable. I will work to correct my behavior in the future.--Ref3rence (talk) 12:17, 27 April 2020 (MDT)
That would have made a lot more sense, and much easier to understand when going through CfD. Red Leg Leo (talk) 12:41, 27 April 2020 (MDT)

The Titanshifter (5e Class) Edit War[edit]

Hey there Ref3rence, I just wanted to let you know that I am thankful for what you did when you were dealing with User:DEUSVULT9000's edits on the titanshifter class. Specifically, you did do the right things in explaining your reasoning on the talk page after the initial edits, and when that didn't work, you contacted the user to try and reach them, and finally you contacted an admin to try and resolve the situation. If you do encounter situations like this in the future though, try to contact the user or an admin to help with the situation sooner before a full blown edit war ensues on the page in question.--Blobby383b (talk) 21:38, 9 May 2020 (MDT)

Will do, thanks again. --Ref3rence (talk) 21:40, 9 May 2020 (MDT)

On the Saiyan Fighter...[edit]

So I'm a huge munchkin and love making incredibly powerful characters, and I was wondering which of the variants are the most powerful? Sorry if this sounds dumb. Also, which of the subclasses do you recommend? They all sound cool and I cant decide. Thanks in advance! --Mushroomwizard (talk) 22:03, 10 July 2020 (MDT)

Saiyan Fighter, Variant (5e Class) was the original, with Saiyan Fighter, 2nd Variant (5e Class) having extended (and typically more powerful) subclasses. If you plan on going above 20th level, I'd suggest Ascended Saiyan (5e Class) over its variant simply for more options (balance-wise they're about the same). Any of the subclasses are about as good as the others, but I personally have a soft spot for Successor and Traveler. --Ref3rence (talk) 23:03, 10 July 2020 (MDT)

Alright, sounds good. Thank you. I have been dming my group for little over a year now and I wanna try something new by making a BBEG from a cool themed homebrew class. Found this one and it fit very well. Thank you! --Mushroomwizard (talk) 23:15, 10 July 2020 (MDT)

Paradox space (5e Campaign Setting)[edit]

Thank you for the rating! –MJLTalk 11:48, 21 July 2020 (MDT)

On the Shinigami, Variant (5e class)[edit]

Worked up a lot on it. Also mentioned in the discussion for the class what all I addressed from your concerns. -- Wes1996 (talk) 14:06, 14 September 2020 (EST)

Worked on the newest concerns as well. Hope they look a bit better with the examples and moving around of the wording on Soul Ignition. -- Wes1996 (talk) 17:24, 14 September 2020 (EST)
