hi, welcome to the wiki. i suggest you take a moment to work out how things are done around here. there are very few rules as such, and few of those are written down. however, this is a fairly tightly moddded wiki, and edits that aren't in the spirit of the wiki don't last very long. perhaps you could read the discussion and its archive to get a feel for who everyone is and what they feel about stuff. also, hanging about Special:RecentChanges will tell you a great deal about which edits are likely to last, and those in the talk space are particularly useful since they tell you how and what people think. mostly, read the articles in the main space. see how they're constructed, what goes where. the wiki always needs good editors. i hope you'll become one. --Evilkolbot 03:17, 7 August 2011 (CEST)
- On that note, in-game bots (such as K-Bay) generally do not get their own pages. There is a single Bots page where a simple description of the relevant bot and perhaps a link that further details/gives access to their services are placed. The basic rule of thumb is to avoid vanity pages on the wiki, unless specifically sanctioned by the game creators (so custom items will mention who got the item, and what for if known). There are a few exceptions to this rule, for better or worse. Chatbot has been allowed his own page, and players that were very prominent in the early days of the game such as Bashy also have their own page. Bashy does at least possess a custom item. But, basically, there are no other players or bots that qualify for that from the modern era of KoL. If you seriously believe there is a player/bot that deserves such distinguished wiki recognition, then you can bring it up on Discussion. If it seems a popular enough proposal, it can be implemented. --Flargen 03:33, 7 August 2011 (CEST)
- alright sorry guys i should've actually learned a little more about this wiki rather than just jump in and put in useless stuff or prohibited.... etc. --zyga21
Sock Puppetry is also frowned upon
We can see when you do that. And that's the sort of thing that tends to make my ban hammer get all twitchy. I hope you're going somewhere useful in regards to what I mentioned above... --Flargen 07:33, 7 August 2011 (CEST)
- And there you go, that's why it gets all twitchy. Your puppet account is perma banned, which will serve as a ban for this account at least for a time. If you skirt around that but are on good behavior, we may just let you be. We could always use good editors. Else, we'll just block this account directly. --Flargen 07:43, 7 August 2011 (CEST)
Ok ok ok... hold up a second, Please, I made that account because the guy Don py. in the real game announced that he was back yadda yadda so i figuered on adding it to the wiki.... Personally i thought that if i put it on there on this account people would say that i was spamming something for no reason.... i meant it in a way to not make me look like a complete idiot for putting that up, this is why i made an account in the characters name because it would make sense to hear it from the character.
SUMMERY OF THAT ^: I'm sorry, won't do it again, i feel pretty stupid for doing that, BUT! i thought it would be an updated part to that page as needed because originally i thought jick made the new NPC for KoL... apparently the person who is the "Don P." isn't real and was banned, i was going to get on the "don" account that i made to change it but i was doing other things....
SUMMERY OF A SUMMERY: I'm Sorry, Wont happen again. --Zyga21 07:23, 8 August 2011
- Well, as I said, if you don't cross any other lines, I think we can just let you be, and hopefully you'll be one of our many valued editors. --Flargen
Thankyou. --Zyga sidenote: how long am i banned?
- Your Don account is permabanned and will stay that way. That ban would only affect you if you were to edit under the same IP address you had then. Since you are currently able to edit, you are no longer under such a de facto ban. I'll remove the banner, though. The banner itself has no powers related to banning; just something we use when we want to be sure an editor knows why they were banned and for how long. --Flargen 08:49, 11 August 2011 (CEST)
