Welcome to D&D Wiki![edit]

Welcome!

Hello Yanied, 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.

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)

I hereby award you this barnstar for the excellent work you have done adding lore to multiple 5e races and bringing incomplete races to a playable state. Thank you very much! Know now that your diligence does not go unappreciated! Quincy (talk) 20:15, 25 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)

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)

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)
