  • Hey, been seeing the edits being made to the site's infoboxes. While I'm definitely sure it's good faith editing, I'm not big on the lack of informing me about or talking with me on changing designs for things I'd spent time refining for reasons. Especially when they're site-wide.

    Slow down a bit on the editing. I'd rather talk through new designs and fix their potential problems first, or cooperatively refine them before pushing them out. We have sandboxes for this reason. I say this, not being a fan of certain layout choices made here.

    Likewise towards certain categories I've seen popping up, that I'd abandoned as a concept, but haven't had time to speak on. I stopped using a certain style for a reason.

    Hope you understand, and as I said, I appreciate the drive to do something. But as long as I'm here, I'd rather it go through me, or be approved in part by me. It's part of the team process.

    • Can the portable infoboxes be formatted with panels as a way to organize information for things and characters that make multiple appearances and change over time? For instance, for Godzilla, he has different lengths, heights, eye colors, allies, and enemies between films. Wouldn't creating a panel for each film help make infoboxes like his easier to read, instead of making endless columns of text and having to put the film year in parenthesis next to certain entries?

    • I don't think so. Even if it was possible, I think it'd just make what's supposed to be consolidated info appear super cramped in a small space.

  • Hey. Is it true that you can make good HD pictures?

  • You did the images as I was getting ready to upload them, lmao. Thanks for doing them, though. Appreciate it.

    QUICK THING, just be careful of making redundant images. Nothing with the final trailer's images are bad for that, but some TV spot ones are close to ones we already have.

    Again, thanks for the image uploads. As I noticed you did the TV spots following Beautiful. Helps a lot.

    • No problem. I did have a few more final trailer images but deleted them since they were already from past TV spots like you said.

    • Ahhh, gucci. To elaborate on that, the one time that should differ is if there's a difference in CGI work that is super noticeable. Which is useful to document later on. Don't think that's been the case, but it's useful for the future.

    • Even I've noticed improved lighting, color, and CGI in the trailer and TV spot images.

  • Heyo, I've seen your edits over the past half a year or so, and you're a really good editor. You write well, adhere to proper page guidelines, and you've contributed a lot to this place. To the point where I haven't had to warn you, or anything. First, I must honestly thank you for all the help. It's really appreciated!

    Second, as per the title, I'm here to approach you about a staff position, provided you wanted one. While I'm not asking you to undertake any responsibilities you don't want, the offer is there, and I think you'd be good for the role. More specifically with the rollback-admin line of duty.

    Regards, Raven Message Wall!

    • Thanks. What does a rollback adminstrator do exactly?

        Loading editor
    • I should've been specific, I meant "rollback to administrator", as in, positions from rollback to admin are open to you. Not rollback administrator, lol. My bad.

        Loading editor
    • Ok then what are some of the responsibilities of some of those positions?

        Loading editor
    • Well, rollback grants you the ability to quickly rollback undesirable edits. Basically a soft power boost.

      Administrator privileges grant you the ability to rollback undesired edits, protect/lock pages depending on the circumstance, and the ability to ban/block users for whatever reason, permitted the reason's right, of course. Yunno, vandalism, etc.

  • Thanks for helping me update the Kong Skull Island page. It was kind of driving me nuts how inaccurate it was. :)
