    • Thanks, I'm not great with mechanics and had to fix lots of links, I didn't realize they'd be red at first. It also didn't occur to me that there's a "recent changes" list that'd fill up with my crap, so I'll be more careful about that from now on.--Stupac2 05:34, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

hi, do you read this page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lol wut (talkcontribs) on 17:14, 16 May 2009

  • Don't forget to sign your talk page posts. And you generally shouldn't edit non-talk pages in a user's space (other than your own). I'll leave it to stupac to decide if he wants to revert your change. --Flargen 01:41, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Adding Guide to main space

Would it be okay with you if your ascension guide was moved into the main wiki space? Or a copy of it placed there, anyway. This would open it up to more general editors, but there shouldn't be any problem with you keeping your own version in your user space like right now. --Flargen 02:44, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

If it was substantially changed then yes, that would be fine. If it would just to open it to minor tweaks I'd prefer to be notified somehow (wiki edit, kmail, whatever) and keep only one copy. I put this on the wiki to take advantage of easy links and the other advantages besides the easiness of editing. But I have loose interpretation of IP stuff, if someone's going to put a substantial amount of work into changing it then that's fine, otherwise less fine. --Stupac2 06:26, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

That's a funny way of looing at it. No one will substantially change it, of course; they wouldn't be allowed to even if they tried. If you look at the Bad Moon Strategy page, the edits have mostly been spelling mistakes and links, and there's lots of both. That's bad? Also...it doesn't matter why you put this on the wiki, it's here now. If IP stuff is your concern, then I should go ahead and do it, yes? Lol wut 11:43, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Well that's my policy. I'm pretty sure that there aren't many broken links or typos in here, in several months the worst thing to be found is a link to an outdated page (besides the bot fixing spiky hair gel when the name was changed). But the point stands that this is my work and I can do whatever I please with it. Besides, user pages aren't like the wiki in general, editing someone else's user page is extremely bad form. While it's possible, it's frowned upon.
My policy will remain that if someone wants something to changed to ask me in-game, on the forums, or here. It's not like I'm hard to contact. And if someone wants to modify the guide substantially they're free to. But shortening it will remove a large portion of the usefulness, which is that it covers basically everything you need to know to ascend well, which was my goal. If you have a different goal I suggest writing your own guide. --Stupac2 19:49, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm sorry, what? What does this have to do with putting it on the wiki? No one will shorten it or remove usefulness, so that's all good then? Lol wut 21:46, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm not at all sure what you're asking. But if you want to put the guide into an actual wiki page (say "Normal Ascension" or whatever, then the answer is NO. I don't want two copies floating around for no reason. I want my work to stay mine. If you want to make a guide for some other page, you're free to. If you want to have it be substantially informed by this guide, that's fine. But I frankly don't see the need.--Stupac2 21:57, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Any reason?
I shouldn't need to give one, but the main reason I put this on the wiki was to take advantage of easy formatting and linking. If user pages didn't exist as a sanctuary from the collaborative nature of the wiki I would have put it on the AFH forums. This is my work, and it was work, and as such I want it to stay my work. I want to be the sole arbiter of its destiny. Proposing edits, small or large, is fine. But I have final say over them. That's just the way I want it. --Stupac2 22:58, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
I already said you would be. If Flargen says so, too, is that enough? Lol wut 23:36, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
I would be what? I have no idea what you're asking to do.--Stupac2 00:08, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Capped/Floored adventures

These should probably be categorized in other places, too. Are there capped combats? The comedians perhaps? Or capped superlikelies? If they're all strictly non-combats we could (currently) just place that category as a sub-category of the NC category, but otherwise multiple categorizations would be fitting. We'd either need a bunch of variations on "tag=cap" (ugh), or we'd remove "cap"/etc. from the "tag=" support and add it as its own parameter (similar to floor, I suppose); like "cap=y". Auto-cat'ing adventures sure is getting to be a sticky situation. --Flargen 21:11, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

  • I don't know of any capped combats, and Jick's post on the forum specifically said only noncombats have the new capping mechanic. There are also capped superlikelies, but as far as I know the only capped noncombats use the new mechanic, and all capped superlikelies use the old one. Floored adventures are weirder since there are a number of ways they can happen, the ballroom song, o cap'm my cap'm, and the manor open are pretty distinct kinds of floors. I don't necessarily think it's worth differentiating between them in the adventuretop thing, but we should in each one's notes. But I'm definitely following your lead on the best ways to categorize things, whatever works best is fine with me, as long as some form of category exists.--Stupac2 21:40, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Maintenance Help

Ubernuke is going to help maintain this guide. He, and only he, has my permission to edit my namespace. Just letting any wiki admins and others know. --Stupac2 02:36, 31 August 2011 (CEST)
