Editing Another User's User Space Edit

Please do not make changes to pages that are in another user's user space. This goes against wiki policy, and can result in a ban. You should not edit pages that are under User:(another user's screen name), e.g. User:Trandra/Sandbox/Engineer (multiplayer).

Let me know if you have any questions. Trandra 14:00, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for the dit i didn't saw it when i red the policy. I just wanted to help in your project that i support.
Kind regards,
DeldiRe

2013Edit

leaving Edit

I would like to thank you for your mature opinions and for the support you expressed me recently. I’m sorry I haven’t had a chance to get to know you, and will not, either, or at least not on this wiki, as I am leaving for good. Farewell. --Ygrain (talk) 11:45, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

It as really a sad decision but i can clearly understand your frustration and your uncomprehension, i feel the same way. I hope that you are not the first of a larger group to leave this wiki. Nevertheless you are still welcome if you want to come back :)--DeldiRe 14:55, January 22, 2013 (UTC)

Cleanup tactics page Edit

I'm currently trying to cleanup the tactics page of ennemies (I begin with ME3) because there is too much information and most of them ar irrelevant. I proceed with those criteria :

  • I delete repetition
  • I try to merge similar information
  • I delete general info (such as Overload is good against shield and Warp againt armor), these informations belong to the power pages.
  • I delete information who are too specific (like a krogan can have x% against such type with this shtogun and this power in this difficulty)
  • I try to simplify the infos
  • I transform specific info into general remarks (ex: Javelin pass trough the shiel of the guardian -> piercing dammage can pass trought the shield of the guardian)

My methodology is, of course, open to discussion.

--DeldiRe 15:25, February 19, 2013 (UTC)

I am going to say this bluntly because there is no nice way to say this. I can honestly say that is the worst cleanup job I have seen. You removed so much valid content that I cannot even believe you would call that cleanup. I had to repeatedly question whether or not it was vandalism. You do need more experience and more familiarity with how tactics sections work before you just start slashing content. Lancer1289 (talk) 20:54, February 19, 2013 (UTC)
I can hear your comment but how can you honneslty thinking that "Overload on a Nemesis is effective" is a relevant information for this page. The tactics page are overwhelmed with useless info who hide the information really interessant to understand the capacity of ennemies. Nevertheless, as I said my vision is submitted to debate, if you feel that i deleted too much, you are free to undo (I only made cleanup for cerberus force in ME3).

But how dare can you accuse me of vandalism ? I prefer to be a vandal for one page than be a vandal for the whole wiki as you are with your attitude (and I do not speak of your reaction to my "cleanups" --DeldiRe 23:22, February 19, 2013 (UTC)

I am sorry that you took offense, but there really was no other way to describe it and how bad it really was and how it looked. I felt that you did need that perspective on just how bad it looked. You removed so much content, that it looked exactly what a vandal would do, deleting large swaths of content under a guise or nothing. You also removed so much valid content, specially character and class specific stuff, that is again something that a vandal would do because they did not like it. It was a very serious issue and one that I can honestly say that I have not seen before, nor hope to see again.
Will I admit they do need cleanup? Yes they do. Is there redundant content? Probably. But removing large swaths of content based on a badly defined set of guidelines and with no discussion I might add is not the way to do it. When implementing large scale cleaup projects, it is best to at least discuss it first with a senior editor or admin to ensure that the backfire is not as serious. Lancer1289 (talk) 01:33, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

I will then launch a forum to create new guidelines for tactics pages to clean and reorganize this real flow of informations. And stop telling me that i acted as a vandal, I explained my vision which is not "i do not like it, i remove it". I just tried to reorganize and remove the informations who did not belong to the page (overload good for stripping shields belong to overload page). But I have others ideas in order to improve those pages and i will submit them to the community. --DeldiRe 09:23, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

Please Edit

Please stop making edits to character articles. What you are doing does not fit with how articles are to be formatted. If a character only appears in one game, then do not add a header for that game. Only a spoiler tag is necessary. We do not need unnecessary headers, especially when they end up forcing a Table of Contents. ONly if characters appear in multiple games or have need of a tactics section do they required multiple headers. In the future, please do check with someone first before doing something like this because there may be things you are unaware of. Lancer1289 (talk) 18:28, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

Do not begin to unedit what I have done. I just try to make character articles coherent with each others. None of them was layouted in the same way.Ans for the poeple appearing only in one game, i did not add a TOC. Furthemore, those character could still appears in further release --DeldiRe 18:32, February 22, 2013 (UTC)
And I will be going through all of the edits because there are inconsistencies. You keep adding headers where they are unneeded, you have forced ToC's when they are unneeded, you have added clr tags which add huge amounts of space in articles. Putting huge spaces in articles just makes every article look unprofessional and sloppy. Lancer1289 (talk) 18:35, February 22, 2013 (UTC)
Again it is YOUR vision that you put forward. I just made the article more consisten with each other. How dare can you just undo like that. Stop doing that and open YOUR vision to debate with others. I'm tired of your attitude. --DeldiRe 18:40, February 22, 2013 (UTC)
Moreover you changed everything i have done even things that are not against your **** vision. Like new chapter style to fit with other articles... --DeldiRe 18:41, February 22, 2013 (UTC)
Really? I have found at least 10 articles where you have forced a TOC for two or less sections. I have found at least 15 articles where you have added a header when something/someone only appears in one game/comic/book and that is unnecessary. I have found a number of clr tags when they are not necessary. Clr tags are to be added on an as needed basis. This is your vision you are forcing, not a standard one. You keep doing this and you keep proving that you do not understand how things work. You keep doing large scale things without checking with someone first, and I am getting sick of it. You know the procedure for making large scale changes, and you do not follow it. Twice now. Lancer1289 (talk) 18:46, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

Lets let cool heads prevail here, guys. I suggest that you both step back and cool down a bit before things escalate.--Legionwrex (talk) 18:44, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

When people cannot at least check with someone first before making large scale changes, then that is a problem and I cannot let it go. Lancer1289 (talk) 18:46, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

I m tired of arguing with you on every point, it is hopeless, you always stick to your vision. I think that you won, i won't make further edit until you leave, once and for all, this wiki. I hope that more capable poeple will replace you soon enough (and there is plenty of them among the editors such as legionwrex, trandra TE78, ...). And to rephrase you, I'm sick of your insult (vandalism, morron, noob,...) toward me and other users. And to respond to my edits, I made them only to make every articles formated in the same way to look more professionnal but it seems that for you it is sloppy, such as everything you do not like. Ah and one last thing, when i tried to ask a change in large scale with the right template, you just mocked me because it was a fail attempt just because my template was'nt perfect (because it was one of my first edit). See you. nb: It is the first time that I want to break the language policy, but Im to polite to do so... --DeldiRe 19:37, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

@legionwrex : Thank you for your intervention but I already cooled my head more than once. And as we say in Belgium "too much is too much".--DeldiRe 19:42, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

(edit conflict)And you have to keep arguing because you have never understood how things work. Any time that large scale edits are to be made, you are required to check with someone first, not just go off and do what you want. And you did that...twice. The reason for this is to ensure standards and to ensure that the person doing it does it the right way. You have twice just went off and did your own thing and that just is not tolerated. So far, just about every major change has either been talked over with an admin at the very least, or gone into the projects forum. The last two character page cleanups where in the projects forum. You just went off and did what you want with no discussion, no consideration for standards, and absolutely nothing to check you until after you start. If you had come to anyone first, you would have gotten feedback and it would not have backfired.
There is also just something I will not tolerate, someone putting words into my mouth. I have never called you a "noob", "moron", or a vandal. I had little choice but to give you a very real perspective about what it looked like. You went off and did want you want without consulting anyone about what the standards were. You just did what you wanted, with what you thought was right, and removed what you thought was irrelevant. You again did this without any consultation and without talking to anyone. This cannot be tolerated and will not be tolerated. Your reaction to this was entirely overblown and if you had been much more reasonable, things would have worked out, but again, it was clear that you never read any site policies and just did want you wanted. Large edits are required to be checked with first because of the amount of articles they will impact. This has worked quite successfully in the past, and you did not even bother to even try. Therefore, the fault for this is entirely on your own. No one I know would start making large changes and then say, "oh if you want to discuss it, fine, but I'm going to keep doing what I think is right". You talk first, then work, not the other way around. Lancer1289 (talk) 19:53, February 22, 2013 (UTC)
Hilarious you just said 4 times the same things. Keep talking you made my day. And by the way. Check with an admins ? There is none... Only 3 for a huge wiki (and one of them is a complete [put the word you want to hear] --DeldiRe 19:59, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

Oh and by the way : "Administrators should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that isn't vandalism. Administrator powers should be use to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith. Ideally an admin shouldn't be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Wikia community."--DeldiRe 10:46, February 25, 2013 (UTC)

Final Warning Edit

Any further violation of site policy will result in a ban. Your comments are completely uncalled for and your repeated insulting attitude is not helping anything. Your persistent harassment is also a violation of site policy. Break any site policy again, and you will face a ban for your behavior. Lancer1289 (talk) 19:54, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

"Your comments are completely uncalled for and your repeated insulting attitude is not helping anything." Taking into account how you've been in some recent posts, wouldn't this mean you'de have to ban yourself via the same context? Avg Man (talk) 02:27, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
Not that it annoy me because I won't edit anymore. But why I m blocked? I did'nt comment or edit anything since the "final warning". --DeldiRe 13:19, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

That is true, actually. Tali's no.1 fan (talk) 13:34, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

You are blocked because Commdor and I were both of the opinion that your blatant violations of site policy (and there is literally no way you can spin calling another editor a complete moron as anything but a willful violation of site policy) warranted an immediate ban. Don't blame Lancer. The decision to impose the ban was made by Commdor and I. The really funny thing is, it was also the two of us who decided on the ban for TellNo1, which DeldiRe was referring to while insulting Lancer.
To be perfectly clear, insulting other editors is intolerable, and in this case, it was done openly and blatantly, in direct defiance of site policy. DeldiRe is more than welcome to resume editing after the ban expires, provided there are no further repeat occurrences of this boorish behavior. SpartHawg948 (talk) 11:43, February 25, 2013 (UTC)

I won't oppose the temporary ban because i know that I deserved it and I never said and I never will say otherwise. Nevertheless, I hope that you will soon enough understand that there is a serious issue when we compare the admin policy and the behaviour of some admin (and I won't give a name or I will be accused of a vendetta).

I explain myself, it is clearly stated that an admin may not impose his will "to settle editing dispute wich was clearly the case in most of my "debate" with Lancer. And it is often the case when Lancer "debate" with others editors. You can't deny that. Moreover, it is clearly stated that the contribution of an editor acting in good faith (what I always did on this wiki, I just want to improve a fabulous tool that I use very, maybe too, often) can't be deleted by admin without a proper debate.

And last but not least, I hope that you will be smart to enough to not judge my point in regard of what I said to Lancer. I know that it was not the better option to resolve the problem but, actually, it was the only way to have some attention from the administration.

kr, --DeldiRe 11:58, February 25, 2013 (UTC)


Oh, and btw, I still wait a response of Lancer on the debate that i launch on the "hazard" talk page. I think this is an interessant topic to talk about (can we use "canon" when we speak about gameplay?) --DeldiRe 12:00, February 25, 2013 (UTC)

I'm impressed.Edit

You've done a really good job on editing the ME:infiltrator pages. Sorry that I've been no help at all...--TW6464 (talk) 13:32, March 26, 2013 (UTC)

I will keep working on this to improve content. You are welcome to add some comment or to correct spelling/grammar/layout.

And thank you for your support. I wanted to start that work a bit earlier but i was delayed by my "little" argumentation with Lancer. Nevertheless, work is going on. --DeldiRe 13:51, March 26, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I'll try to when I can.--TW6464 (talk) 13:58, March 26, 2013 (UTC)

once again, extremely impressed. You've pretty much taken this whole d*mn effort on your shoulders. Fantastic job. And again, I apologize for being a lazy bum. I've had a project I needed to do for my health class, and it's taken whatever time I got, man.--TW6464 (talk) 13:51, April 22, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your support, it gives me more motivation ;) --DeldiRe 13:52, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

THANKS Edit

Thanks for the resent edits at the ME 3 infiltrator, it only a few that have played the game(who edits on this wiki), and its valueble information :)--Perkins98 (talk) 17:31, March 26, 2013 (UTC)

Ty for support, I'm still working on it--DeldiRe 19:05, March 26, 2013 (UTC)

Edit

I uploaded a logo you can put at the top of your sandbox page to match the other game pages: File:Mass Effect Infiltrator logo.png. Trandra (talk) 21:14, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, it is added. I'm now waiting a lot of screenshot on my mailbox (hard to transfer picture from my tablet to my PC :s) and I will improve the work that you made for weapons and powers for MEI.--DeldiRe 21:23, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

Then I guess that you support my new version of ME:I main page. Do not hesitate to edit my sandbox to correct it so it will be ready to launch sooner. --DeldiRe 21:26, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

Multiupload Page Edit

I'm not sure if you know this already, but we've got a Special:MultipleUpload for uploading several images at a time.

And please add [[Category:Mass Effect: Infiltrator]] in the description (you only have to do it in the single description box at the bottom for multi-upload). I'm trying to clean up the Uncategorized Images.

Thanks!

Trandra (talk) 07:56, April 17, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the info, I will do it for the next upload wave. (and thanks for your fixes) --DeldiRe 08:17, April 17, 2013 (UTC)

No problem. The pages are starting to look nice and filled out! I will probably work a bit more on walkthrough specifics when I feel like playing through MEI again. I'm going to reset my game so I can specify where the credit consoles and wall-safes can be picked up. Trandra (talk) 08:20, April 17, 2013 (UTC)
Perfect, i will focus on screenshots because it is harder for me to write coherent and good walkthrough. But as you said, I'm already glad of the work that we already done, MEI content will soon meet the wikia quality standards.--DeldiRe 08:43, April 17, 2013 (UTC)
I have just cleaned all the pictures I uploaded by giving them several category. --DeldiRe 07:46, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

Bray Proposal Edit

So far, you've gotten a good reception for your call for a Bray article. Including the two of us, four have spoken in favor to zero against. I suggest formerly putting forth a proposal (i.e., putting forth a vote). Thanks. TheUnknown285 (talk) 13:42, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

@DeldiRe - As I've mentioned on the project page, since this is a project proposal, you or other users who support it need to first produce the Bray article in a sandbox for the community to examine before any vote can be opened. -- Commdor (Talk) 18:23, April 28, 2013 (UTC)
@commdor : see on forum page.--DeldiRe 19:05, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

Just a note Edit

The word is spelled ENEMY in English. That is eNemy. A single "n," unlike the French word. Trandra (talk) 20:50, May 2, 2013 (UTC)


ahah Thanks, I make always the mistake because of the french word :) I will do my best to avoid that. --DeldiRe 08:38, May 3, 2013 (UTC)

extra space advisory Edit

wikia seems to be forcing extra spaces at the end of all section-based edits lately, and since you're one of those who still bother to contribute i'd like to bring this issue to mind.

namely, check for any spaces at the very end of any edit you make. if there's any, backspace it. helps save time from having to correct oversights like this. thanks. T̴̴͕̲̞̳̖̼̱͒͛̎͒ͫ̃ͧeͩ̈̽̈҉͓̝̰̼̦̫̤̀͠m̫̪̪̯̻͎̫̅̇̓̇͌̚p̸̙̝̓̓͌ͨ͆ͣͥ̂̕o͒̽͐̽͏̞̬̻͕͔͕͚̰͍͠͞ṙ̢̞͚͈̹̰ͨ̓ͭ̈́̌ạ̢̧̪̹̺̺̣̹̲͂͆̏ͪͨ͒ͭř̹͈͜͠y̷͍̻̜̹̼̾̽̈́e̵̹̼̟̦͚͐̈́͌͘d͉̲̣̻͉̱͗̅ḭ̷̻̆͋̆̓̔͝t̨͍̦̫̗͂̅̍̋̆ͩ͝ộ̫̟̬̳̝̲̾ͫ̒̿ͮ̑̚rͯ̎ͨͭ̄̿̽͛҉̠̫̱̠̘̘̲́ͅ7̩̻ͤͩͨ͝͡8̜̣̙͇̻ͨ͛͛̆͒̆̽̒͐͜͡ ͥ̍̉̃̇ͥ̓ͨ͏̕҉̥̹͓̗̤̠̖̤ (talk) 15:17, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice TE, I had also seen it but didn't know the reason--DeldiRe 19:58, June 8, 2013 (UTC)

Something I learned about Projects Forum votes Edit

What I've discovered about the whole "don't open voting when you open the project" strategy is that people will come by during initial discussion and say something positive, but then they won't remember/bother to come back when you open voting and vote. So I had a project pass literally 1-0-0 with only my own vote! Which I guess worked out for me that time, but it felt weird. So then the next time I opened a (very similar) project, I just opened voting right away along with discussion. That time people did the same thing of coming along and saying something positive... AND they voted Yes. So anyway, probably says something about human nature, making people stop by twice means you won't get as many folks stopping by. Use at your discretion :-) Cattlesquat (talk) 21:47, June 17, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks buddy, I already saw that but I already tried (for MEI project) to do that and, guess what, lancer came and deleted my vote and said that it is needed to open a discussion first. Just look to the log of this huge project and check the only comment he posted. So this time I wanted to follow the rules but it seems that it is not enough. --DeldiRe 21:53, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
If there's a policy that you can't open voting along with a reasonably complete sandbox mockup, then I certainly can't find that policy anywhere. And I've seen several "projects forum" items other than mine that started right out with voting open and proceeded to fruition undisturbed. I'm not saying I'm infallible on the point of finding & knowing all the policies, but if it happens again I recommend raising and if necessary escalating as a point of order. Cattlesquat (talk) 22:01, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
I also did not saw it on the MoS, however you know how certain people use MoS as they see fit..--DeldiRe 22:08, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
By the way, thanks for your support by saying the things as they were. --DeldiRe 22:12, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
No problem. I think Commdor is operating in good faith & missed and/or differently-interpreted Trandra's note, plus didn't know about the Wikia changes. I vaguely wish we weren't so delete-first-ask-questions-later around here but that's more a matter of personal preference and overall I think it's all straightening itself out. And I feel where you're coming from about other totally separate situations and I've certainly got my wikia-ears perked up when making-up-the-rules-as-we-go-along surfaces to be a loud voice against it. Your faithful servant, etc. Cattlesquat (talk) 22:44, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
Oh and on the ironic side the massive # of "discussion" edits have moved your article to the enviable top spot in the "hot items" list, which will certainly attract more eyes and probably voters to your issue. No guarantee how they'll vote of course, but at least you'll get the eyes. Your faithful servant, etc. Cattlesquat (talk) 22:50, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
Yep as you said, Commdor is acting in good faith, I'm sure of it, but I still do no like the "deletefirstaskafter" especially with familiar editors. And as I said, I'm glad that Comdor took part in the content discussion. It's just too bad that we came with that discussion about upload, I knew we would came to this that's why i did not wanted to upload any video in the first place --DeldiRe 22:55, June 17, 2013 (UTC)

N7HQ Datapad Images Edit

File:ME3 N7HQ Garvug.png, File:ME3 N7HQ Hourglass Nebula.png, and File:ME3 N7HQ Omega.png (the locations in the Terminus Systems) have all been uploaded for you to use in your Sandbox. Trandra (talk) 13:37, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you Trandra !!--DeldiRe 13:47, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

If you are using Chrome (or Firefox, which behaves similarly), you can right-click on something and "Inspect the element" or "View Source." It's easy in Chrome, since it has a developer tool that shows the source code (CSS or JS file). One of the little subwindows shows what background images are being pulled in by calls to the CSS file. You have to click on the proper "div" to find it, though. If you don't understand enough HTML or CSS to know which one is the right div, then I can take care of it. Trandra (talk) 15:32, June 25, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks again. I tried to do something for the layout, what do you think ? Terminus system only for now. I can also implement that for the datapad article. Feel free to edit my sandbox if you have an idea (different layout, coding, size of pictures,...). I can easily revert it if needed.--DeldiRe 22:41, June 25, 2013 (UTC)
xpost xpost. since there seems to be no differences in terms of flavor text between the browser and app versions of datapad, you can simply insert one intro paragraph in the galaxy of war section saying that the browser version dishes out galactic readiness percentage rewards as opposed to credits or something. then the rest follows as such or something similar:

ME3 N7HQ Pinnacle Station
N7HQ Icon Pinnacle Station

Pinnacle Station: Command Center – Formerly a military training Facility, Pinnacle Station has been repurposed as a command and control center for Council forces.

Alliance forces repelled the enemy assault and kept Pinnacle Station functional.
(Credits : 75) (Galactic Readiness : +2.80%)

I was thinking the same thing. A specific page for the mini game (with the two versions) and a link to this page from datapad and N7 HQ page. However, put this into the Mass Effect 3: Galaxy at War article yet better because we have also lots of similar infos on the MEI section (mechanism to increase war assets and/or readiness). I propose to :
  • Add a chapter about EMS (war asset total, military strenght * readiness = EMS) for clarity.
  • Replace the chapter about Mass Effect datapad by the a complete article about the mini game (with an explanation of the two versions)
  • delete the whole text on datapad article and replace it by a simple intro (mini game to improve readiness with fleets/missions system, based on credits/evolution of the fleets system, replaced by a web broswer version which delete the credits/evolution mechanism,...) and a link (main page : galaxy at war #minigame)
  • Add the N7 HQ article with only a short intro of the mini games and not the whole text/pictures (permit to improve your readiness with fleets/missions system, this game replace datapad bu without credit/evolution mechanism,...).

The hard with that is to make a good article which includes the two version of the game. We can try to do it on my sandbox. Thoughts ? Trandra, thoughts ? Anyone else ? --DeldiRe 10:05, June 28, 2013 (UTC)


Hi TE78, could you take a high quality pictures of the galaxy map please ? It could flesh this article with a "cover" pictures : User:DeldiRe/Sandbox/Mass Effect 3: Galaxy At War.

And I think that the web browser mini game is bugged because I can only send Three fleets on missions, after that, the "game" is bugged and do not launch further fleets. Have you the same problem ? --DeldiRe 10:06, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Commdor, As you can see, the integration of the mini game mechanisms (from both version, lets say V.ios and V.HQ) is a proposal of TE78. I was not really in favor of that to begin with but when I was thinking, it seems to be the best way to do it because :

  • The datapad and N7HQ article are not overflowned with a huge amount of info but just with a clear description of what the game is and a link with the detailed content (such as for the e-mail section of the datapad).
  • Galaxy At War article is more complete because it show every possibilty to improve your readiness. For example, imagine a player who do not know nothing about ME who want to improve his readiness. He will come to that article and will be glad to see that a mini game is available and that it can improve the readiness even more than multiplayer. He will then look after the N7 HQ website.
  • All informations about the mini game can be found in one place, it is then easier to understand that there is two separated version and that one replaced the first with another mechanism. (but I'm sure that we can improve the explanation I gave for more clarity).
  • The part "theaters of operations" is located on the good page and is only about "lore" and there is no part of gameplay mechanism in it (such as the rewars which are redundant). Which is good for poeple who are redrect there due to there search on quariant colony (KetOsh) for example.

Thoughts ?--DeldiRe 08:03, July 9, 2013 (UTC)

Except the mini-game is not a separate entity from either the Datapad app or N7 HQ, it's a feature in both. The gameplay information belongs in those articles, not the Galaxy at War page, because that page's purpose is to provide only an overview of the Galaxy at War system. Readers looking to learn more about how GaW tie-in media can improve their Galactic Readiness can navigate to the articles about those tie-ins. -- Commdor (Talk) 00:24, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

Sure but as it was, you had a link on both page. As it is now, you have no much info on datapad and everything on N7HQ and the separation between the two version is not so easy to understand. Moreover, you putted the credits reward in the N7HQ article which have no sense ;) because credits belong to datapad :). That, at least must change. --DeldiRe 07:24, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

read articles before inserting information Edit

i've had to revert some of your trivia since you aren't reading the ME3 sections of the affected characters. which pretty much says the same things.

as such, most of the stuff you're adding aren't trivia. they're better off incorporated under
=== Mass Effect 3: Citadel === subsections.

exceptions probably allowable for those without their own ME3 sections like schells, mouse, etc. T̴̴͕̲̞̳̖̼̱͒͛̎͒ͫ̃ͧeͩ̈̽̈҉͓̝̰̼̦̫̤̀͠m̫̪̪̯̻͎̫̅̇̓̇͌̚p̸̙̝̓̓͌ͨ͆ͣͥ̂̕o͒̽͐̽͏̞̬̻͕͔͕͚̰͍͠͞ṙ̢̞͚͈̹̰ͨ̓ͭ̈́̌ạ̢̧̪̹̺̺̣̹̲͂͆̏ͪͨ͒ͭř̹͈͜͠y̷͍̻̜̹̼̾̽̈́e̵̹̼̟̦͚͐̈́͌͘d͉̲̣̻͉̱͗̅ḭ̷̻̆͋̆̓̔͝t̨͍̦̫̗͂̅̍̋̆ͩ͝ộ̫̟̬̳̝̲̾ͫ̒̿ͮ̑̚rͯ̎ͨͭ̄̿̽͛҉̠̫̱̠̘̘̲́ͅ7̩̻ͤͩͨ͝͡8̜̣̙͇̻ͨ͛͛̆͒̆̽̒͐͜͡ ͥ̍̉̃̇ͥ̓ͨ͏̕҉̥̹͓̗̤̠̖̤ (talk) 13:22, July 17, 2013 (UTC)

Request Edit

I have a little request for you.

Unlike you I have no account and I can't add any pictures like you can. I asked administrators to do this, but they ignore me like the Council ignore Shepard.

On talk page of ME:Paragon lost characters I put a suggestion to add the collector general as an adversary and gave even a link to the film and a moment time of good character picture. I ask you to take that picture and add it. Please, do that. 78.8.131.1 21:09, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

I will look into it. However, don't be afraid to create your own user account to start useful edits. --DeldiRe 22:19, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

Due to the low quality version of my film, I can't get a good screenshot. You can try to do it yourself if you ask help to temporary editor78. I'm now off for holidays so I can't look to that issue anymore. --DeldiRe 22:20, July 28, 2013 (UTC)

Welcome back! Edit

If you're interested and in case you hadn't noticed during your absence, there is some news about key people working on the next Mass Effect game.
And it might sound silly coming from the newcomer, but regardless: Welcome back! — Elseweyr (talk) 08:39, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the info and for the welcome message, it is always a pleasure to receive such attention ;). I also have seen that an app (final hours of ME3) was published on Origin but it is not stated on the main page and no info about it can be found on the wiki, do you have more infos about it ? --DeldiRe 08:42, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

Glad you're back! Cattlesquat (talk) 22:12, August 19, 2013 (UTC)
About the FHOME3: While it's technically a Mass Effect app, it's been around for a year, and I dare reason there'd be an article about it already should it merit one. I'll get back to you once I've familiarized myself with it, though. — Elseweyr (talk) 23:09, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

I will download it during the week and do the same. After that, let's go for a common sandbox.

I also have in mind several corrections related to art and interactive content :

  • more infos on the art book page (the description of the art of mass effect universe isn't really complete but I need more infos that i'm currently gathering.
  • In the main page, I will ask to add a scroll in "other media" with a scroll "interactive content" (ME: datapad, N7 HQ & FHOME3).
  • Regroup ME film and MEPL into one single scroll ? (where I can add trailers page  :D )--DeldiRe 23:32, August 19, 2013 (UTC)

Mass_Effect_Logo.png Edit

rename to File:Mass Effect Galaxy Logo.png.

because of obvious reasons.

i suppose i can always petition a rename of the file in its talkpage, or rename it outright, but 1) that's just needless red tape and 2) as file uploader you had to be kept in the loop.

i just need your consent to rename so i can validly file an edit reason ASAP saying "author request".

Indeed, it didn't but as we said, we can make a special treatment due to its particularity : its 4 different stories. What its your opinion on that topic ? --DeldiRe (talk) 09:58, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

Actually you should also keep informations about artistic team.--DeldiRe (talk) 09:59, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

homeworlds and foundation are both anthologies, but there's still existing precedents to deal with.
now, homeworlds only has 4 issues. all other multi-issue comics stop at 4. foundation has at least 13. hubbing is totally justifiable for foundation because cramming all 13 issues in 1 page is obviously unwieldly. homeworlds ends up being the odd man out.
if another 4-issue anthology comes up (not really sure if 3- or 2-issue ones count), then it's fair game to set up hubs for them by virtue of emerging pattern.
for now, feel free to restore artist information only.

I do agree with your point except that we shouldn't put the focus on the lengt and the number of issues but more on the content. Never mind we can wait until more comics comes even if it will take a loooong time. btw, who will cover the foundation 2 release (as Commdor is no more present) ?

When I say content I do not mean the content present on the wiki. I merely speak about the idea that ME:homeworlds is four separated stories while others comics are only one story. If you take the problem in that POV, the number of issue is irrelevant because it's the content which is different ;). As for fondation, the content (separated stories) AND the lenght (13 issues) can be used as reasons to create an HUB page. --DeldiRe (talk) 13:00, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

i'm not really seeing the difference between File:Pirate (Galaxy).png and File:Pirate Elite (Galaxy).png. there's an unused item :File:Pirate Mass Effect Galaxy.png that looks more like your description in the pirate elite page.

I checked it once more and its correct. In fact, the unused file was a mistake because it is not even a pirat, its a batarian terrorist so you can delete that one (I thought that I already put a delete tag).
For the others, if you look carefully, you can see the white part on the elite pirat when the legs of the classic pirate are green (I made a precision in the text). --DeldiRe (talk) 13:00, September 5, 2013 (UTC)

so when was your latest bright idea ever up for community discussion? Edit

don't get me wrong, those twitter feeds will probably get approved down the line with some/a lot of adjustments, but seriously?

WHERE THE FUCK IS THE COMMUNITY INPUT ON THIS?

you of all people should already know the procedure for introducing newish elements into the wiki but you never learn. we never really dealt with massive offsite copypasting before (only text integration and reference-citing whenever needed) and there are multiple things that needed prior feedback. "small" things like layout, formatting, scope of content, article naming conventions, or even the necessity for such an endeavor in the first place. stuff that don't concern the regular folk but are nightmares for the organizational-minded to think things over. utterly trivial issues like the recent romance hullabaloo get discussed over and you just decided you're above such bureaucracy with this wider-ranging project?

consider this a strike one warning. proper channels and proper documentation of project scope and detail, or else.

T̴̴͕̲̞̳̖̼̱͒͛̎͒ͫ̃ͧeͩ̈̽̈҉͓̝̰̼̦̫̤̀͠m̫̪̪̯̻͎̫̅̇̓̇͌̚p̸̙̝̓̓͌ͨ͆ͣͥ̂̕o͒̽͐̽͏̞̬̻͕͔͕͚̰͍͠͞ṙ̢̞͚͈̹̰ͨ̓ͭ̈́̌ạ̢̧̪̹̺̺̣̹̲͂͆̏ͪͨ͒ͭř̹͈͜͠y̷͍̻̜̹̼̾̽̈́e̵̹̼̟̦͚͐̈́͌͘d͉̲̣̻͉̱͗̅ḭ̷̻̆͋̆̓̔͝t̨͍̦̫̗͂̅̍̋̆ͩ͝ộ̫̟̬̳̝̲̾ͫ̒̿ͮ̑̚rͯ̎ͨͭ̄̿̽͛҉̠̫̱̠̘̘̲́ͅ7̩̻ͤͩͨ͝͡8̜̣̙͇̻ͨ͛͛̆͒̆̽̒͐͜͡ ͥ̍̉̃̇ͥ̓ͨ͏̕҉̥̹͓̗̤̠̖̤ (talk) 13:51, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

Are you kidding me ? Why are you so harsh after all the job done on this ? I will answer all your attacks :

  • Copypasting ? It's not copypasting at all, I sorted all the infos (5 differents tweets account + several web page) to put them in a readable way and I added an intro to explain the context. Without that, the story is impossible to understand. Alliance News Network/SolComms is more something like copy paste because it's only one twitter feed (but the intro is interesting to understand the context, like I did for shore leave content).
  • Reference/copypast ? I would have prefer to not copypaste (and put reference instead) but the information needed to be sorted and we have a precedent like (once more) Alliance News Network/SolComms
  • Community input ? I spoke about it during a whole day with Elseweyr (which is the one of the only currently active editor) on the chat. When the FIRST page was completed, i just came to you (on user page) to ask your input (there is two others similar stories to sort -> findleviathan and fight for omega).
  • Procedure ? Forum:Twitter Lore and my sandboxes pages are free to look at and are free to comment for any input.
  • Am I above the discussions ? I certainly do not think that way as you can see that I'm always asking opinion (see MEG template enemy box for example or previous trailer article). I just added a new page and I did not a massive change on the wikia content nor a massive new thing because Alliance News Network/SolComms was already present.

To conclude, you know that I'm open to discussion and that I want to improve the completion of this wiki. There is no need to be harsh and as you can see I tried to follow every procedures even if it's true I implemented the page a bit fast because there was a precedent (in my mind, it was not a big deal, in the contrary it was just a page to fill a hole). And to my defense, you also know that the wiki is currently not with a lot of editors so the community input is really hard to get.

I was also looking to the romance discussion but I'm still building my opinion on it (consensus not yet reached^^) and I will weight my voice if I see that it can be relevant. If not I let the discussion to others. And romance page (one of the most important article of the wiki) can not really be compared with the AAN news feed which is more a secondary article.

Well, I hope that I have been cleared because I'm quite shocked that you think that I believe that I'm above the community. It's not true at all! --DeldiRe (talk) 14:23, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

I'll just quickly step in here and speak for myself: one other editor saying 'why not' (and not much else) in chat ≠ community input. While going ahead and creating the new article was a rash and ill-advised action, I greatly appreciate the work you're doing and I'm pretty sure I'd support new page(s) with the twitter stories at some point. Elseweyr (talk) 14:35, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Sure that it was not a real community input, but I just said it to show that I still had a discussion about it (and you and I are actually almost the half of the active community^^). The implementation was maybe too fast but as I said, why is there the page about sollcomms (Emily Wong story) and not for the others ? It seems logic to fill this omission with an article with the same sort of layout. But yeah, we can start a vote about it.--DeldiRe (talk) 14:42, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm. A regular contributor adds an article in good faith. It gets rejected & deleted as too problematic to do without community discussion, with a suggestion to put it to the community & some explanation of what needed to be discussed. THAT much all seems pretty routine to me. No noticeable damage to wiki or community, etc. What bothers me a lot more is why that led an admin, who in theory is supposed to be more mature & act as a guide and helper, to pour forth a stream of abuse, obscenities included, and start throwing around "one strike" warnings. That sort of thing does a lot more damage to the community (and by extension the wiki) than one article being created & deleted inside of a few hours. Cattlesquat (talk) 17:08, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Im with Cattlesquat on this. Even if DeldiRe was in the wrong Temp your overreaction was completely uncalled for. And I did not work so hard to have the language restriction removed for you to launch obscenities in every post. Doing so severly weakens your argument and just makes you look childish.

Re: ME4Edit

I'll let the edits be reverted, but that does raise an issue in ME (insert title here), since the data is based on spin-offs, and every indication that ME4 is a non-spinoff games. I mean, I'll toe the line, but if it's coming from Bioware itself, even if it never comes to fruition, shouldn't it be stored for historical purposes?--Hawki (talk) 13:35, September 24, 2013 (UTC)

As you say, the only reason to put it is for historical reason. However I'm not sure that it has an added value to the wiki. Maybe you should ask an admin about that but IMO it is unneeded (except on a blog about ME4 developments info as you created) ;). In the future, you can also create a chapter about ideas stated by Bioware but who where rejected in the main version.

M-597 Ladon Edit

Hi,

I got that from temporaryEditor but the codex on ME3 Wii U does not put the entry on M-597 Ladon there. It has its own separate codex outside in the primary codex. Also, there's a note on the Ladon description article that should the Codex entry be transcribed, it should go to the description area instead.

MP character infobox Edit

Hi Del,

I tinkered a bit on your template over at the Finnish wiki, to the best of my abilities ;p You can see what I came up with over at fi:Käyttäjä:Elseweyr/Human Soldier; the template itself is on fi:Malline:CharacterMP and the CSS I used is right at the beginning of my site-wide CSS page (fi:Järjestelmäviesti:Wikia.css). The same code is on my personal CSS page on this wiki.

If you want to play around with colours and other styles, feel free to do it over at the Finnish wiki (since the CSS indeed affects all users); if you want to conduct experiments here instead and want to use my CSS classes, just copy the relevant code into your own CSS page (User:DeldiRe/wikia.css). Let me know if you need help or you want me to adjust something for you. Elseweyr [ talk | stalk ] February 6, 2014, 09:48:42 (UTC)

Hm, I did ask you whether the code was from somewhere, and Wikia has terms of use. Naughty jellyfish :p Elseweyr [ talk | stalk ] February 6, 2014, 10:32:47 (UTC)

Thanks for the work you did, but I'm not sure if it's preferable to work via the wikia.css or via the templete itself. What is, for you, the most relevant choice? ;).--DeldiRe (talk) 14:33, February 6, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, well, I just removed a whole lot of unnecessary repeated styling from the template, so that alone makes it preferable to create separate classes that can be used as many times as you like.
Look at my CSS page and the kind of stuff under the .character-ME3MP things: they're various styling attributes, right? Then look at my version of the template, and you'll see it's very simplified: to style a cell (where in "your" version background colours and other stuff are defined over and over again), I can simply use class="col-left", and it will pick the styling I've defined for col-left on the CSS page. Thus, when I want to try out, say, different colours for the left column, it's enough to change it in the corresponding class, and anything that's styled with that class in the template will be updated.
So, it's handier to tweak, and the template is less cluttered with code. I also got rid of redundant #if functions: each character has an image, class, race, etc. -- the only thing that doesn't apply to everyone is gender. I hope this made sense, but we can go over it in Chat next time you're online. Elseweyr [ talk | stalk ] February 6, 2014, 17:03:01 (UTC)


Concerns Edit

A little over a month ago, I was banned by Temporaryeditor78. I was editing a few pages which had incorrect spelling and grammar. Suddenly I was told that I was IP banned and unable to edit. Since I was banned I could not post to talk pages for other admin of the wiki to plead my case. I went to my page to find this :

FINAL warning

for your own good, read up on the wiki's style guidelines and manuals of style. i have warned you twice in the past before about this. the bulk of your edits indicate that you can't be arsed to.

  1. codex entries are verbatim.
  2. unnecessary and borderline incorrect word changes
  3. constant brit/american spelling "corrections"

make edits of similar nature once more and you will find your edit privileges revoked. T̴̴͕̲̞̳̖̼̱͒͛̎͒ͫ̃ͧeͩ̈̽̈҉͓̝̰̼̦̫̤̀͠m̫̪̪̯̻͎̫̅̇̓̇͌̚p̸̙̝̓̓͌ͨ͆ͣͥ̂̕o͒̽͐̽͏̞̬̻͕͔͕͚̰͍͠͞ṙ̢̞͚͈̹̰ͨ̓ͭ̈́̌ạ̢̧̪̹̺̺̣̹̲͂͆̏ͪͨ͒ͭř̹͈͜͠y̷͍̻̜̹̼̾̽̈́e̵̹̼̟̦͚͐̈́͌͘d͉̲̣̻͉̱͗̅ḭ̷̻̆͋̆̓̔͝t̨͍̦̫̗͂̅̍̋̆ͩ͝ộ̫̟̬̳̝̲̾ͫ̒̿ͮ̑̚rͯ̎ͨͭ̄̿̽͛҉̠̫̱̠̘̘̲́ͅ7̩̻ͤͩͨ͝͡8̜̣̙͇̻ͨ͛͛̆͒̆̽̒͐͜͡ ͥ̍̉̃̇ͥ̓ͨ͏̕҉̥̹͓̗̤̠̖̤ (talk) 03:34, February 23, 2014 (UTC)


One, I never received a first, second, or ANY warning before this. His changing of my edits happened within minutes of a ban.

I went over the guidelines, and I'm FAIRLY certain that I was within my bounds EXCEPT for one or two changed to codex entries, which were a complete accident and easily rectified.

There is no such thing as "Borderline" incorrect grammar. Your front page says grammar and spelling corrections are always welcome. My changes that were not to codex entries were in fact correct, which was why I made them. I think the fact that I made numerous edits in about an hour somehow annoyed Temp.

As to the whole brit/american spelling? Mass effect follows "American English" style when it comes to spelling. I.E. Armor, not Armour. So I could be wrong, but I BELIEVE it's fine for me to change it to "American" English. If this is not the case, please let me know and I won't ever do it again.

I'm not going to make ANY edits until I have an answer on this from a mod other then Temporaryeditor78 as to whether editing spelling and grammar (Non codex) is OK. His message was rude and his rash decision to ban me seemed unprofessional. I am unbanned now, for whatever reason, and I did report this incident to wikia, though I never received a response from them after their first so I have no idea if they have anything to do with me being unbanned.

I have already posted this on Trandra's talk page, but I do not know how active she is and would like having this resolved as soon as possible. I am not sure what your moderator status actually allows, so if you can't help me then please by all means delete this message and I'm sorry to have bothered you

I find Temp's attitude as moderator to be borderline flaming/trolling, or would discuss the issue with him myself.

Many thanks.

Ottakanawa (talk) 10:12, April 15, 2014 (UTC)


Hi Ottakanawa, As you said it, my moderator status doesn't allow me to weight my position on this matter and I leave it to Trandra. However, I know that Temp can be harsh sometimes but you shouldn't take it too personally because he has a lot of issues to deal in the same times in order to keep this wiki in a good shape. All I can say is that you seem to be a good editor acting in good faith for the sake of this wiki. As such, I hope that you will remain on this community in order to contribute with us. I also hope that you will forget this incident as fast as possible and become a valuable asset. By bringing the topic to Trandra, you took a good decision to defend your position but do not expect a "justice" ;). I had also my problems with a problem some months ago but I proved my value by editing, I suggest you to do the same and I will be happy to help you doing so! See you buddy!--DeldiRe (talk) 11:07, April 15, 2014 (UTC)


Thank You Edit

As it turns out I was wrong, I had received the warning an hour prior. For some reason it hadn't shown up in my notifications. Temp was completely justified in what he did. He also cleared some stuff up for me. I'm not very good when it comes to wikipedia edits aside from spelling and grammar, which anyone else could also do. Haha. I'm not sure how all the tools work and stuff, but I'll get better at it. I'll make sure to do a better job, thanks for the response.

Editing links Edit

Ahoy. Thanks for your work so far, but please note that [[Adept]] is still a single-player class page for Shepard's military specialisation, so this doesn't help. A link to ME3MP/.../Adept should now point to Adept (multiplayer) instead, if applicable. Elseweyr talkstalk April 25, 2014, 21:17:02 (UTC)
EDIT: link correction (11:03, April 26, 2014 (UTC))

Yes I saw it a bit late :) So I stop editing such link. By what should we replace it?--DeldiRe (talk) 13:28, April 26, 2014 (UTC)
Generally you change "Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer/Character Customization/Adept" to "Adept (multiplayer)" if you still want to reference all of the multiplayer Adepts in general. Elseweyr talkstalk April 27, 2014, 01:33:14 (UTC)

Kudos & edit notice Edit

As far as I can tell, any further adjustments relating to the recently created character pages is beyond the scope of the project. Thank you for your contributions to it and for helping implement the changes!

Regarding player notes, looking at your recent edits I don't think all of the cut notes necessarily needed to be removed: replacing a bunch of character-specific notes with "can be useful in team of biotics" is rather counter-productive. Power and enemy pages may also have useful character-specific notes that could potentially be transplanted to character pages instead.

And while your grammar doesn't have to be flawless in order to edit articles, you could eliminate a lot of mistakes simply by using some spell-checking tool while editing in English. Leaving in stuff like "os" instead of "of" and somehow changing "Grenades" to "grandes" along with other wording "improvements" (which mostly involve making something acceptable ungrammatical) is tedious to correct but easy for you not to introduce in the first place. Since you assume others will help you with language (which basically is okay), at least do your best to eliminate typos and spelling errors. It may be best to avoid modifying the language altogether unless you're absolutely certain it needs to be corrected; dictionaries can also help you in this. Elseweyr talkstalk May 1, 2014, 17:33:30 (UTC)

It's strange because I'm using a tool to correct spelling mistakes. I will be more careful. For "can be useful in a team of biotic", it's just to shorten long statement to explain this simple idea. ut yeah, it still can be improved. My main objective is to order the notes and to simplify them.--DeldiRe (talk) 20:59, May 1, 2014 (UTC)

at this point i would ask you to Edit

stop with the links even though you're mostly finished.

apparently, links within the text weren't allowed by spart and the others way back when.

as i've been busy QCing my own additions lately, i'll be reviewing this case for the moment and properly weigh in once i know more.

Erf, indeed. It's kind of strange as Commdor made the links himself. There was also several CDN pages who were linked before I started. I don't see any indication of this in site policy and I hope we won't have to remove them as they can be useful to understand the CDN stories... In the first place, I just wanted to order the stories not put links into CDN articles but as I said, some pages were linked that's why I wanted to have coherence in the wiki... Maybe should we open a discussion on it. I didn't know that it could be problematic, on the contrary.

NB: I plan to propose a nav box and a list of the stories (ordered in a proper layout) as soon as my sandbox is ready.--DeldiRe (talk) 15:48, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

personally i have no problems with the linkages, but once i know the reason why they prohibited it i might change my mind and go dictator mode again. or maybe not. a proper MOS wasn't laid out for CDN, after all. to be on the safe side though, 1) ask spart for clarifications. 2) propose a measure for allowing links. do #2 once i've replied back with my final judgments.

as for navboxes, one organized according to months may be sufficient. in light of multiple avenues for sorting, pick the most immutable: page-based. which happened to be organized by months. storylabels tend to be lengthy, arbitrary, and will crowd up a general-purpose nav aid.

  • Links: Good way of doing thing, I hope that it will pass regarding the time it tooks ;) Please, don't undo until you are sure it was a bad idea. I could also help you to undo if necessary...
  • NavBox + stories: I take your comments into account and I generally agree with them. I will make several proposal when I'm ready, I think we will find a proper way in order to facilitate the navigation on those strange articles. NB: the headlines were arbitrary chosen :). --DeldiRe (talk) 16:32, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

as far as i can tell, there was no explicit reason why textlinks were suddenly banned. template documentations tell nothing about the matter other than transcribing the full text. nothing in discussions either while people were hashing out the organizational details. while i can see the appeal in keeping the entries pristine, we already have precedent on how much we can treat verbatim-only items (codex).

get spart's input on this. give it a week. resume operations on the event of a go-ahead (or lack of response). otherwise, the links will have to go, i will have to codify the restriction, and you will have to propose something to get them back.

As it is a long and boring work to do, I would suggest to keep them during the discussion except if you can remove/re add them easily without destroying the work I made on stories.

Minor Characters Article Edit

Hey, I've been working on and off on the proof of concept for the article. You had offered in the past to help with adding characters from the media that I'm not familiar with (i.e., everything other than the core games). So if you would like to, I give you permission to make edits to my sandbox article, maybe just a couple to show what it would look like. I have a running list of characters that need entries at the top of the page, so you can add to that as well. Thanks. TheUnknown285 (talk) 16:05, October 20, 2014 (UTC)

2015Edit

Hello Edit

Hi! So I decided to finally become a contributor to this wiki, due to my love for the series, and figured that it'd be fun to expand it some. I noticed that some pages have a lack of lore on them, and was wondering if it would be appropriate to expand on them. For instance, I have noticed certain characters do not have sections on their biographies and such. Is it necessary to do that, as most other wikis do, or is there a reason (I'd keep it vague, due to the fact that there is no clear "canon"). I also wanted to make an article about the Andromeda galaxy, as it will be playing an important role in the series in the future.

Great to be here

Darth Ravigious (talk) 19:07, July 28, 2015 (UTC)

Hello Ravigious and welcome on this wiki! Your contribution is more than welcome as we are eager to improve the quality of this wiki. It's always good to expand a page if you are sure that the new content has a real added value (reading the Manual of Style is also good to help you). If you are not sure, you should launch a discussion on the talk page. If you want to start a bigger edit, I would suggest to try it first on a sandbox page. In any case, your edits can be undone if they don't suit the rules of our community. Don't be mad, it happens really often and it doesn't should stop your contributions ;).
For Andromeda, I would suggest to wait for more concrete information. The wiki policy is quite clear, no speculation at all and only confirmed information by dev or by the game itself. Don't worry, there is plenty of others articles to improve in the meantinme.
Have fun and feel free to ask any question.--DeldiRe (talk) 19:53, July 28, 2015 (UTC)

Ah yeah, I suppose that makes sense. Even though we already pretty much know that the reddit leak was completely or near completely true in regards to the game, we can't technically assume anything unless an official announcement is made. Same thing goes on like wookieepedia.

And thanks. I look forward to it. I was thinking of editing the "human" article and mentioning how life originated in like a paragraph.

Admin issueEdit

Could you please revoke TemporaryEditor78's admin privileges? Please just glance at his talk page for 2015 or 2016. He does not leave reasons for his edits and is EXTREMELY rude, nasty, and flaming with other members of this community. He speaks for himself.

He often bans with no warnings, and enforces policies without any thought at all just because he likes them whether or not the community feels otherwise. He is a bully.

This has gone on for years, there are now staff here who can help you get rid of Temp. He should no longer be in charge. He has scared away literally HUNDREDS of editors instead of teaching them anything. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 142.105.153.46 (talk · contr).

Hi, I can understand your position but I think that you should open a dialog with him. More than an admin, he is also a very valuable editor on this wiki and works hard to keep the quality of the wiki to its highest standards. It takes time and he is, as we are, not paid for the job! He can be rude but sometimes I think that he just has no time to give so much explanation. Do not hesitate to launch a dialog with him, he is also a good listener if you propose solutions to improve wiki. If you wish to launch a vote for a demotion, feel free but I'm not sure that you will be able to gather enough support to do so especially now as we need all the "manpower" we have to complete MEA content.

That's on his talk page. I LITERALLY HAD TO EDIT THE POST TO HAVE A SPACE IN AS S BECAUSE THE SLUR FILTER NORMALLY PREVENTS IT AND HE CIRCUMVENTED IT JUST TO INSULT THIS USER. YOU CAN CHECK FOR YOURSELF BY TRYING TO POST THE WORD AS S WITHOUT A SPACE ANYWHERE.This is approaching quite literally the 200th time he has been rude like this. Please explain to me how this is justified.

Do something about it please. It has literally been years of him being allowed to blatantly harass and insult people rather than teaching them anything while having ZERO accountability.

I don't expect you'll demote him, it's been years of you being content with the way he speaks to people, but please speak to him. I have tried to speak with him on several occasions over 3 years, he has called me a halfwit, a moron, and said 'he doesn't need to explain himself' your own dialogue above is a contradiction. Multiple community rules are being broken by him on a weekly basis. Again, it's been YEARS.

Please do your job. PLEASE.

TemporaryEditor78 Edit

TemporaryEditor78 Edit

Was gonna ask you more seriously about talking to TempEditor about his behavior and constant violation of the wiki's rules (No warnings. No reasons for reverts. Insulting people asking him why they were banned) But after looking through his talk page and edit history it is abundantly clear that he is immune from the rules AS HE HAS BEEN BREAKING THEM ON A NIGH WEEKLY BASIS FOR YEARS. Very sad. Literally hundreds of community members have been scared off and harassed by him over years with 0 repercussions. You should be ashamed. I see how you handled a recent complaint by allowing him to ban them for 'vandalism', I see he was also called out for his blatant abuse of his admin status and nothing was done. Well this is not 'vandalism' it is a valid complaint so if I am banned for sharing this with admins and nothing is done about it you're just further proving my point.

Mass Effect 2 Planet IDs Edit

Greetings!

I have discovered that each planet (and even locations such as Citadel, Omega, Heretic station etc) have their internal ID number and a corresponding boolean that checks if this planet was visited (planet info accessed). For example, Earth's ID is 30102; Klendagon's is 110201 etc. The question is, should I edit the planet descriptions adding the ME2 ID tag for each planet? Or will it totally be a waste of my time? Thank you for reply.

P.S. Note that these IDs are ME2-specific; the same planets will have different IDs in ME and ME3. ArsenVitiuk (talk) 07:41, November 25, 2017 (UTC)

waste of your time because 1) verbatim descriptions only and 2) there's no point.

Shield Boost Edit

I was looking through the Mass Effect ability pages and here's what I noticed. There are three talents - Basic Armor, Tactical Armor and Combat Armor - that unlock the 'Shield Boost' ability. However, the 'Shield Boost' description is only present on the 'Tactical Armor' page. What do you think about creating a separate page for the Shield Boost ability? As an alternative, the Shield Boost description could be copied onto the Basic Armor and Combat Armor pages, but I think the latter is not so effective.
