It's how they get their kicks I suppose. Like being invincible and challenging others to kill you in proof of your invincibility.
I could be accidentally feeding this troll by passively blocking him all the time. He wants to be banned to proove how unbannable he is or something like that.
If he was, I was expecting something more... I dunno, more severe? I've first heard of a serial wiki troll from Harry Potter Wiki that went into some lockdown. I figured it was more of a troll that was causing more harm, or a raid of trolls or something.
This here could probably be solved if it's possible to simply disable new user sign-up over the weekends. Keep our current community active without the need of a major lockdown, just can't have new blood for awhile.
What sucks is, just because I delete the post, as an admin they're still visable to me. So I see all the dicks.
I don't think it make much different to lock existing threads given he'll just make new ones.
I think the right sollution would be to prevent new users from posting for the weekends. Allow the current community to be free to login and logout but anyone who hasn't posted on SNN before the posting block will be unable to do anything.
If I remember correctly, you mentioned that you were 31 years old, and possibly the oldest member of this community. I'm 26 and I also feel like I'm one of the oldest on here. I hope there's more of us on here who were actually old enough to play the early games when they were still fresh.
Next time, when you are on the image page, click on the "File history" tab and then click on "Upload a new version of this file". It will save a lot of time by uploading an updated version of the pic instead of uploading several more duplicates. The files have to be of the same extension in order for this to work (i.e. .jpgs can only be replaces with .jpgs or .jpegs).
I just had one more question on this. Using the "Upload a new version" method, is it possible to change the destination filename of a replacement picture? No matter what I do it seems to be locked to the original filename and won't allow edits.
If I had not been the "buzz kill" first then you would eventually be accusing someone else for being a buzz kill just for answering your queries.
If you already knew that water did not cure zombots and was asking the question as a "what if" scenario then you should of stated, that would be more of a speculation thread then. But given you did not know about it and had asked those questions I simply gave you the answers and confirmations. You're welcome.
Am I? You asked a question on your thread, I gave answers to your questions and I'm the jerk?
Why are you really upset with me here? I believe you made that thread because you didn't know about the water thing and you thought "Hey! Could I be onto something?" and that maybe you were right and how cool it would be if it turned out true. But because you overlooked that water fountain you're taking it out on me when you could just accept that you forgot about the water fountain and moved on, or at least say on your thread "Oh yeah, forgot about that, but what if it did?"
I believe the jerkiest thing that I could of done was to just ignore that thread and let you remain oblivious. Sometimes I ignore threads when it comes to subjects I know little of, but when a thread asks a question or does not know of something that I can help answer, then I usually do my best to answer.
If there were others who have issues with me then they have not come open with me, or if they have asked other admins about me those admins haven't discussed my behavior.
I know of one other user who did thought I was being somewhat of an undermining sort in which he addressed the matter with me and we talked it out. I wasn't trying to make him look dumb or treated him like a fool, he had speculations and questions which I answered to the best of my knowledge and sort of struggled with discussion ettiquettes which I tried to encourage him to correct. Sometimes he took what I said the wrong way or personal which I assured him it was not.
It's same with you, I wasn't trying to make you the fool in your own thread nor do I mean to belittle you. All I did was simply answer the questions you presented. If it was the other way round I'd be thankful for being corrected. Even with SNN and other Sonic-related wiki's there are still loads of Sonic things I do not know of.
I will confess that yes, I am guilty of nitpicking. A bad habit of mine that I've attempted to overcome since High School where even my best friend thought I was too imposing of my suggestions for his character. No longer wanting to be that kind of guy I try to keep an open mind and closed mouth when it comes to other peoples creative directions.
As for Enclave, can you please remind me who? I recall awhile back NexSans2092 talked about if he made a SA3 game and later said he and a partner were going to make a "Sonic Adventure 3" and asked for tips. He specifically asked me what I believe what makes a Sonic Adventure game. He didn't understood my detest for Hnt Rings but I acknowledged I was being too picky over something I was perhaps the only one ever to have an issue with and didn't want to impose how he would make his game. If anything he had good ideas I liked.
The answer is simple. Your valid points arn't as valid as you may believe. You just need to think "why is it like that" and "what does it mean if it's not like that."
Also, you have a habit of making multiple posts when only one will do and you make multiple threads that are sometimes the same thing for no reason. Please just keep it to just the one thread per valid subject.
