About the comment that you added to Hook's article ("Hey, please read the comment policies (or the text right above the comment section.) This kind of thing isn't allowed."): Please note, that according to our policies, warnings are to be made by staff members. (The sole exception to this is any content that insults or slanders a user personally.) I appreciate that you're trying to help, but minimodding is not allowed. Please remember this in the future :-)
I wasn't trying to issue a warning, I was just informing him of a policy he missed before he ended up in enough trouble to get a warning. Hence why when he continued to make the same mistake, I didn't continue. I attempted to phrase it in a way that made that clear but re-reading it now I see that I didn't do that very well.
Out of sheer curiosity, though, do you happen to know why that policy was created? It seems a little weird and counter-productive to me to ban users from informing other users of their policy-breaking and I've never seen a similar policy on another wiki, so I'd like to have a better understanding of it so I'm less likely to accidentally break it (and possibly to suggest implementation of a similar rule on other wikis if the reason makes sense to me :P)
It's okay, I know you were just trying to help :-) As for your question: It is about overstepping authority, and is in fact a rule on many wikis. It is better to leave these things to staff, because different people say different things. If everyone was free to do it, we could reach a point where people don't know what rules to follow because so many different people say different things. We want to avoid that kind of situation.
Please note that this is a warning, it is not up for debate.
This comment, as I'm sure you already know, is absolutely inappropriate and will not be tolerated. If this kind of rudeness happens again, you will be blocked for a period of time. I know it can be frustrating to see the same suggestions repeatedly, (believe me, I know!) but not everyone is as familiar with the policies as others. It is no excuse to be rude, and if you find that a particular policy is "ridiculous and makes no sense", you are absolutely welcome to start a discussion about it.
I wasn't trying to come across as rude? I was expressing general exasperation, but not with the specific person. And I understand the point of the policy and by no means do I intend on requesting a change, but it does result in some weird examples (such as First Mate or Jekyll and Hyde's long-term naming of "Groundsman" and "Warden"). I did purposefully phrase my comment as snarky, but it was intended to be lighthearted and not an insult to anyone.
That may be true, but we have to remember that when communicating in text, all tone is lost. You may know you're joking, but the people reading it may not. This is something pretty much all of us have to keep in mind, myself included, so just try to be more mindful in the future of how others may take your comments.
Please don't do stuff like this:
Jasmine#WikiaArticleComments. That second comment of "...hellooooo?" is, for one, extremely rude and, for two, you posted it like ten minutes after the first. Being rude and impatient is not a good way to get the answers you're looking for, please keep that in mind. :)
About that revert about the book. Actually, I did explained you why I revert it. But it seems that I only began because now that I look back at it, it seems that I published it without the rest of my explanation x)
Mea culpa, I went too fast ^^
So, if I revert it, it is because you added a point saying that in the script of 112, the book was mentioned/supposed to appear or whatever. We don't need this trivia, for the simple reason that the book does appear in the opening scene of 112 ^^ Belle is holding it :) So no need to use the script for that, since the book does appear.
You see, that"s why ^^ But next time, ask me directly on my message wall ;)
I don't know who you think you are, but I'm gonna ask you to change your tone when you talk to me. You don't have to give me orders or to talk like that. If you disagree with something that we're doing on the wiki, it is fine. But it does not give you the right to give me an order or talk to me like shit.
I don't really care who you think I think I am, but I'd like you to know that assumptions don't sit well with me. There was no rude tone that was intended to go behind that comment (nor a large portion of the other comments i've left for you), and if you have a problem with how I phrase my speech then you can get over it.
First of all, please stop with the attitude. I did see the comment you left, DatNuttyKid, here:http://onceuponatime.wikia.com/wiki/Season_Five?curid=203529&diff=470981&oldid=470666, and my opinion is that, yes, the comment may have not be meant to be rude, but it certainly came across as it. And no, no one should just "get over it" if they don't like how you speak. The problem here is that you are not intending to sound rude, but you are sounding rude. This is the internet. We aren't speaking face to face, so of course there are going to be misunderstandings when things are typed rather than spoken. You said, "Then make her a page!", which comes across as impatient and even flippant in your response to Lady undoing your prior edit. My advice is to just be more aware of what you write, and how you are coming across in speech when responding to someone else's edits. There's no reason why you couldn't have written to Lady on her wall to ask if there was going to be a page made for Violet's actress rather than leaving a comment on your edit telling her to make a page, which came off as potentially rude to Lady.
I understand that when speaking via the internet it's hard to tell what the intended tone is. However, as much as I should keep that in mind when making comments that could come off as rude, you should also keep that in mind when approaching someone who came off as rude, and her post here was much ruder than my comment would have been if it was intended to be rude. It's one thing to take it as rude and ask me to stop, but it's another to come in and attack me for it when that was never the intention.
I just ask you to stop talking to me with your rude tone. And, I did it quite politely. So no, my comment was not rude at all; all I did was to ask you to stop talking to me lile you did. No need to try to revert the situation.
Yes, speaking through the internet might be confusing since, as we all know, tone is not really attached to it, so it's up to every one to kind of guess based on the words chosen. The edit summary might have been alright, but it sure does sound rude. Given that you claim it was not the intention, I think things are settled. You yourself should understand Lady's response, especially if it seems worse than it is due to the internet communication.
Besides, if we expect someone to react badly, we will see a bad tone in their words. So let's all just try to expect the best from eachother.
