Thanks for fixing my link[edit]

I thank you for fixing my link- Cjscorpion

Thanks for fixing Cole[edit]

Thanks for the help as you can tell I'm a bit new to the Wiki, I'm very grateful thank you so much.--JumpyBoss (talk) 16:21, 7 January 2021 (MST)

Thank you for helping me balance the skill with my homebrew class[edit]

That was very sweet of you and works way better, have a wonderful day! Stay fresh (talk) 17:17, 22 February 2021 (MST)

Thanks for fixing some of my balances! Hauptmann.[edit]

As you could probably tell, I'm not the most experienced with 5e and the wiki. Yes, I play a ton of it and my party is obsessed with homebrew, but I just do not have the time some of you experienced players do. I'd just like to say thanks for helping me out, it's appreciated. I'm hoping to balance enough things to get the hang of writing pages and concocting concepts well enough to make my own things with a good foundation soon enough. Anyhow, keep up the great work bro. +Rep - Hauptmann Burner (talk)

Thanks for the assist on Boon of The Eldritch Master[edit]

Thank you for the help with the Epic Boon I added - would it be possible to link it to the Epic Boons List? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by kampfertum89 (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

No problem. Just checked, it’s still there. Between Eldritch Knight and Elemental Fire, easy to miss. --SwankyPants (talk) 21:01, 26 March 2021 (MDT)

Regarding edits[edit]

thank you for taking the time to reach out to me regarding corrections. if it wouldn't be too much trouble could you contact me via discord? my username is CommanderBeepo#9116 but back on topic, thank you for taking time out of your day to review my effort at homebrewing Arknights into 5e --AshKnight (talk) 5:57, 14 May 2021 (PST)

Sorry, that might not work out too well right now, but I can still do stuff on talk pages if that’s okay. If you absolutely must talk to me through discord, I am still on the communities discord, and if you can’t reach me there, my full tag is SwankyPants#8553. By the way, you could’ve just responded on your own talk page, might make things a bit easier. Thanks for not being too angry. --SwankyPants (talk) 07:08, 14 May 2021 (MDT)
hey, me again. Just coming by to remind you not to make edits without consultation, thanks.: --AshKnight (talk) 20:21, 15 May 2021 (MDT)
Well, you don't own the page, so that's wrong, actually. I'll take my time to explain it then.
  • Originally, the natural weapons were split into three different traits, which wasted space. Even then, the tail was by far the best one, having the additional "knock prone on str save" thing. So, I merged them all into one trait, letting you choose what you want.
    • The Sauria Strength trait was meant to depower the tail and give you a reason to use the other damage types. Nothing else.
  • On that undo, you also deformatted a few things, namely making Strength into Strength, and other such things.
  • As per above, you lowered the maximum height to 5'10".
My edits seemed more than fair while still trying to maintain the original spirit of the page. In practice, this race probably now functions much better, as you no longer have two useless traits, and some extra fighty stuff other than the "knock prone". I'm curious to see why you're against it. --SwankyPants (talk) 06:55, 16 May 2021 (MDT)
I created the page. Your being incredibly rude by altering another's work with consulting them, this is even mention by the websites rules as something to avoid. I'm trying to stay true to in game lore, lore that you aren't aware of. I don't need your opinions or your overbearing hand, id like my work left alone.: --AshKnight (talk) 08:01, 16 May 2021 (MDT)
So be it. I rescind my comments about you not being angry. Thanks for your time. --SwankyPants (talk) 08:41, 16 May 2021 (MDT)
I'm not angry, just annoyed. I shouldn't have to watch all my work like a hawk to ensure my vision is left alone. --AshKnight (talk) 08:51, 16 May 2021 (MDT)
I would appreciate it if you both were a bit more cordial, but that is just one of the points I want to make. What I would like to say is that it seems like you may be confused AshKnight. Homebrew on the wiki can be edited by anyone and the goal of the wiki is collaborative creativity. By having multiple people edit a work, you get several different perspectives on what works best for that homebrew. In addition to that, you don't have to inform the creator before editing their work, as while informing other users of your plans for a homebrew page is for the best, it is by no means necessary. Also, when editing a page, below the edit box is a text blurb which details some info about creating homebrew on the wiki which includes the following " If you do not want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then do not submit it here".
Because it seems like you were not aware of all of this, I would like to ask you and to a lesser extent SwankyPants to please respect other people's opinions. For AshKnight, in all likelihood, there will come a time when people edit homebrew you worked on to vandalize it/make it worse, but try to not simply revert the edits other users do in good faith, which it seems like SwankyPants's initial edits were. Either way, if you believe an edit needs to be reverted explaining why an edit has been reverted can also helpful(either through the edit summary or talk page), with the relatively recent lumberjack being an example.
Anyway, for SwankyPants, I ask that you try to be cordial and discuss things when issues arise. I do understand that you too may be upset, but explaining things and being calm is better than letting a situation devolve. Either way, edits do need to be made to the race, but this is not the forum to have them. I have since locked the race and will be giving my own personal thoughts about the race on its talk page a latter date when things are calmer.
My closing thoughts are for AshKnight. I do understand wanting to stay true to source material when creating homebrew, but at the same time would like to say that taking some liberties with how something works for the sake of balance/flavor/ect. to translate it to another medium is ok. A homebrew's final appearance may different than what you or I would have imagined, but in the end we all are trying to creating usable and balanced content for 5e.--Blobby383b (talk) 09:47, 16 May 2021 (MDT)
