Oi! Buddy![edit]

Its Pika, from discord with the https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Aura_Warrior_(5e_Class) aura warrior class. after doing some balancing and fixing up some wording as requested, would you say its better balanced than before, or does it still need some modifications? If so, please put it in the discussion page.

Hey Dude![edit]

I like what you said about game balance. It rings very true. Quincy (talk) 19:36, 12 December 2018 (MST)

Thanks! Not very openly said point I think often around here. --Yanied (talk) 20:02, 13 December 2018 (MST)

Request for Adminship?[edit]

I've been thinking, Yanied... You've been around for a while now, you're a prolific editor, and your contributions are consistently helpful and high-quality. I get the impression that you'd do well as an administrator, and you'd be able to do a lot of good for our website if you were entrusted with administrator tools. Would you like me to nominate you for adminship? Quincy (talk) 22:57, 20 January 2019 (MST)

Oh, gee that sounds like a big responsibility. I'd like to better know the details of what an admin really does before I commit with any wrong idea. Otherwise, thanks, I'd be grateful for nomination!--Yanied (talk) 13:13, 21 January 2019 (MST)
You can read about what admins do here on Wikipedia. In practice, on our wiki at least, it's not actually that big a responsibility - being an admin just means you're a "trusted user" and you have a bit more power than other users as a result. You don't really need to change what you're doing all that much. Take some time to consider it, at least. No pressure. Quincy (talk) 13:40, 21 January 2019 (MST)
Oh, cool. Then yeah, sure, I'd be happy to be nominated. Thanks!--Yanied (talk) 13:45, 21 January 2019 (MST)
I'm glad to hear it! Since you agreed, I've created a page for your nomination Here. Quincy (talk) 14:47, 21 January 2019 (MST)
Oh wow, thanks. So I have to answer those questions, right?--Yanied (talk) 14:57, 21 January 2019 (MST)
Yep, simple as that. Quincy (talk) 15:07, 21 January 2019 (MST)
I say that most people have been able to work with you a bit, would you be interested in another adminship nomination? --Green Dragon (talk) 23:24, 6 June 2019 (MDT)
Ah, thanks for the notice. I feel I'm getting a bit more of the hang of things... But I think I need a bit more confidence before I jump into that again. Maybe another time? Thanks again.--Yanied (talk) 23:29, 6 June 2019 (MDT)

Litch[edit]

I just want to say, great work on Litch (5e Race). It was in a poor state when I tagged it 2 years ago and you really polished it up well. Marasmusine (talk) 11:38, 8 March 2019 (MST)

Thanks! Means a lot hearing it from the one who tagged it--Yanied (talk) 11:43, 8 March 2019 (MST)

Image Links Tip (You may find this useful?)[edit]

Hello Yanied, I noticed the last edit on your userpage where you said that didn't know how to link to image pages without creating a huge picture. When you're linking to images, you can change the output size of the image by, instead of simply using [[File:Example.jpg]] to link to an image, adding a vertical bar at the end of the link followed by how many pixels in size you want your image to be. For example, if you want to limit the size of an image to 200 pixels, you could use the link, [[File:Example.jpg|200px]]. Does that help? Based Quincy (talk) 19:28, 30 March 2019 (MDT)

Thanks but I was thinking more along the lines of how it shows up on a watch list just as a link and there's no picture. I feel if there's a picture it just takes up a lot of room visually.--Yanied (talk) 20:30, 30 March 2019 (MDT)
Bringing this topic up again, you could use [https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/File:Peddler_by_Granger.jpg this format] to produce links like this if you don't want the picture to show up.--Blobby383b (talk) 04:43, 21 September 2019 (MDT)
Oh, yeah. I've often used that for source linking outside rather than inside the wiki. I should get back on this (got distracted). Thanks--Yanied (talk) 20:16, 22 September 2019 (MDT)

Abandonment[edit]

Dude, I... I gotta say. For one, I dont know how to actually like, message people? so this is the best I got... Thank you. The Apocalypto class that I... well, abandoned months ago now. It is... immaculate. i love it. And I have you primarily, almost entirely you, to thank. So... Thank you. So much for fleshing out the bare husk I had tossed aside... 50.96.89.57 23:46, 30 March 2019 (MDT)

Oh, you're welcome! I always liked the idea of the four horsemen so it was very fun and I'm very glad you liked it! Thanks for stopping by!--Yanied (talk) 14:43, 31 March 2019 (MDT)


Ralis[edit]

Hello! I recently saw you edited up the Ralis race, and it is awesome that you did so, especially because writing isn't exactly my strong suit however, the direction you went with it is quite different from what I imagined the race to be. Essentially you created a perfect homunculus. The Ralis, while could be considered that are the orb itself, it is a soul cage. Or as one of my buddies calls it, it turns you into a meat gundam. The soul gets sucked into the orb, then you control the meat suit. I understand its confusing, but essentially I wanted to create a magical item, that is the race itself, the orb is the race, not the body itself.

Ah, yes, sorry if I mussed up your vision a lot... It's just that I have a preference against making races that use a base race, due to their variability, which can sometimes be a balance issue. The traits themselves also had effects that were either not wholly 5e standard, or made the race too strong at a starting level. It was awesome seeing what you did have though, and if you want to try and make your vision come to fruition in a different way, I'd say do it!--Yanied (talk) 19:41, 8 June 2019 (MDT)


Lospiri[edit]

Hey, don't know how to direct message on here, so this is how we message I guess. You asked about the Lospiri setting on my page (Cammino3). While I was originally planning on making it a 5e setting, after extensive homebrew work in 5e, I've come to the conclusion that it won't work for the setting. I will be using work based off the stuff tagged as Lospiri here, but it will be an official setting of a trpg system that is currently under development.--Yanied (talk) 10:31, 20 September 2019 (MDT)

Cool. Just wanted to know. (Btw you used my signature lol)--Yanied (talk) 10:40, 20 September 2019 (MDT)

Pokémon Evolution[edit]

I noticed on the Deino page the feats act as the pokemon evolution and thought that was a pretty slick way to deal with that quality. Do all the pokemon you help with or create use the same process? Like, I won't find a Raichu race, but I would find a Pikachu with a racial feat Raichu?   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   09:38, 23 September 2019 (MDT)

Yeah, you could. Thing is that some of the races were made readily as last evolutions (because their first evolution may not be appropriate or enough to be a race), so this is not possible for all of them. Truth be, credit goes to CL for mentioning how feats act as evolutionary in Discord. I just acted and tried it out. ^ ^; If I do any other pokemon races, I may add more of them, yep.--Yanied (talk) 11:27, 23 September 2019 (MDT)
I wanna make a Pokémon race, but I don't know what already been done. Can someone help me? Flamestarter (talk) 16:19, 24 September 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
Hey, sure. You can check out all the pokemon stuff here--Yanied (talk) 20:07, 24 September 2019 (MDT)

Checkup![edit]

Hey, I was wondering if you could check my corebot race again to see if I missed anything? That would be great and I'd really appreciate it. Flamestarter (talk) 16:22, 24 September 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

Sure. I'll give it a look-see--Yanied (talk) 20:08, 24 September 2019 (MDT)
I have left my review on the talk page--Yanied (talk) 21:15, 24 September 2019 (MDT)

Racial Help[edit]

I'd like some help making a race, small Cybertronians. Not normal size like Boulder or Bumblebee, but smaller ones like Arcee and Groove. Do you think you could help me? I'd owe you a favor and be happy to repay it when you need a fresh pair of eyes. Flamestarter (talk) 15:13, 30 September 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

Sure, I can lend a hand. Exactly what help do you need and in what parts? Regarding size, if they are indeed Small, that's fine and they'd be like dwarves. If you mean Tiny, then that means they use the variant rule.--Yanied (talk) 18:47, 30 September 2019 (MDT)
No, no, see, the "smaller" Autobots are actually like 10 feet tall. They're smaller because normal sized ones are almost 15. I think that would count as large. Also, are you available for helping with lore and fluff on my Shade race? I took the link like you suggested and it lead me back to you. Love from Flamestarter (talk) 19:07, 2 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter <3
Ah. In that case, yes, the cybertronians would be Large. As a courtesy note of caution, for any large race maker: Large races have an inherent bonus due to their size lending strength and allowing them to wield certain weapons, as well as grapple easier (iirc). So Just be aware of that for the balance aspect.
And sure, I can fluff up the race if you'd like :)--Yanied (talk) 19:11, 2 October 2019 (MDT)
You are amazing, Yanied! Thank you so much! I will send you the Cybertronian link a little later. Flamestarter (talk) 19:17, 2 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
I was unable to start the Cybertronian page yesterday and the rest of my week is really busy. If you could get it started, that would be awesome and I could add in some things. Flamestarter (talk) 04:35, 3 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
That's fine. I will start the bare skeleton, as I don't have much experience with what a cybertronian even is. I also fluffed up the Shade (5e Race).--Yanied (talk) 07:10, 3 October 2019 (MDT)
Thank you very much! You did an amazing job and I love it so much and you're amazing and I'm very appreciate!! Flamestarter (talk) 14:10, 3 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
You did a lot of the work yourself, so no need to thank me. There's just some issues with the balancing and all, and I'll just check for wording after.--Yanied (talk) 14:12, 3 October 2019 (MDT)
Aww, you're sweet on me! Anyway, If you need help with mechanics of a race, class, etc., you tell me, because I'm oddly good at it. Not like odd for everyone, odd for me. Flamestarter (talk) 03:46, 12 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
I'll keep that in mind, thanks.--Yanied (talk) 16:12, 12 October 2019 (MDT)

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) 23:35, 15 October 2019 (MDT)

Sincere congrats, dude. Glad you passed the RfA! Welcome to the club! Based Quincy (talk) 23:43, 15 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks! I hope I'll be able to uphold the duty and all.--Yanied (talk) 23:44, 15 October 2019 (MDT)
Is there a test for becoming admin on here? I'm confused. Flamestarter (talk) 13:50, 16 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter
There is a nomination process and, because we are democratic, an election and discussion, essentially.--Yanied (talk) 13:54, 16 October 2019 (MDT)
Congratulations Yanied. Yeet Yeet!   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   06:05, 17 October 2019 (MDT)
Thanks BSFM!--Yanied (talk) 07:36, 17 October 2019 (MDT)

Checkup![edit]

Hey, Yanied! I finished the spell Angel's Arrow and the weapon Element Gun. I was hoping you could take a look at it. -Your best bud, Flamestarter (talk) 13:48, 16 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

Sure.--Yanied (talk) 13:54, 16 October 2019 (MDT)
I have left my reviews on the pages. Nice.--Yanied (talk) 07:36, 17 October 2019 (MDT)
Thank you so much! I try my hardest. Flamestarter (talk) 11:48, 17 October 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter

Vatranite[edit]

Hey, Yanied. I really appreciate your help with some of my things, so to thank you, I'd like to assist with the Vatranite race. Give it a good look-through. The race is a really good idea and I think my grammar-freak nature might be able help. Flamestarter (talk) 17:21, 1 November 2019 (MDT)Flamestarter.

Oh thanks. To be honest, I just wanted to let it simmer a bit because it isn't abandoned just yet and I'm having a bit of a burnout with all the writing I have to do. So I was just shifting to incrementalism and focusing on classes more.--Yanied (talk) 20:28, 1 November 2019 (MDT)
