User talk:50.136.149.237

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki

Please stop adding the Sailor Venus speculation to the Mira page - you and other users have a history of doing this. There is a clear consensus that there is no clear relation between Mira and Sailor Venus. If you re-add it again the semi-protection will return, possibly indefinitely. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 06:15, December 19, 2014 (EST)


Page Blanking[edit]

Blanking talk pages is not allowed. Please contribute constructively instead of messing with those. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:11, December 19, 2014 (EST)

RE:Look below[edit]

Not especially, although Octavian in the Animal Crossing series is pretty cool. :) Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:19, December 19, 2014 (EST)

u should put this on your talk page, not here.

Talk Page Message Removal[edit]

Hey there, I reverted your last removal of Red's message. I'm afraid that removing messages from talk pages is against the wiki's policy in most cases, including this one; in the last year especially, the policy has shifted more toward keeping all past talk page records. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
Incidentally, you could create an account on the wiki to use for editing, if you haven't already, which would allow you to leave this talk page behind, more or less. -Sky (talk) 01:23, December 20, 2014 (EST)

Protection Notice[edit]

Because you keep blanking this talk page, it is now semi-protected for a week, so you'll need to reply on my or other staff member's talk page if you have any questions or whatnot. Thank you. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 06:50, December 20, 2014 (EST)

If IPs aren't supposed to have user pages, why is it possible for one(including me) to make one? --50.136.149.237 20:50, December 30, 2014 (EST)

Just because you can technically create it; IPs can create pages for some reason (but not talk pages, on many other wikis it's the other way around). But by no means does that mean it's allowed, we just have to trust users to not create such pages, and it's not like it's a big hassle to delete an IP userpage when one is created. This reminds me a bit of the message in the user talk archive template that states that only admins can edit this archive, but it's technically possible for anyone to edit it (the software can't recognize archives) so protection is often needed in these cases. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 11:42, December 31, 2014 (EST)

Why can't anonymous users create talk pages? Is there a way for administrators to change this kind of stuff in settings that can only be changed by admins? I'm not an admin so I don't know if there is....

--50.136.149.237 20:11, January 1, 2015 (EST)

Only the server admin has access to these kind of settings. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 06:51, January 2, 2015 (EST)

Is there a picture of what the settings look like? I want to know what it looks and I'm so curious about this! --50.136.149.237 12:52, January 2, 2015 (EST)

There aren't any "settings" to screenshot. All of the permissions are programmed in using PHP coding. If you want to see a list of all of the permissions by user group, check out Special:ListGroupRights. --Jake 14:06, January 2, 2015 (EST)

Are you going to change the settings? It kinda bothers me how I can't create talk pages(I also can create a user page, but that doesn't bother me). I wish I could create talk pages of villagers(and stuff like that) that don't have a talk page created. I don't want to create an account because i want to be anonymous. You don't have to actually do it, I can live without and I'm just saying. --50.136.149.237 16:41, January 4, 2015 (EST)

I do support the idea of IP's being able to create talk pages, if that can be implemented. That being said, you can create an account while still remaining anonymous. There's no requirement for you to use a real name or disclose any personal information. If anything, an account can be more anonymous than editing via IP, as an IP address reveals your general location. ~SuperHamster Talk 18:03, January 4, 2015 (EST)

What i meant by anonymous is not creating an account. I want to be an unregistered anon even if it can be shared by other users. --50.136.149.237 16:28, January 6, 2015 (EST)

Since you want to create talk pages for certain subjects, what kinds of questions and comments do you have in mind pertaining to these articles? I guess asking people like me or other users now would be the best way to accomplish what you want to do if you insist on remaining anonymous. On another note, I'm not sure why I.P.s can even create pages in the first place since deleting pages require certain group rights in the first place. Mario Signature.png 17:18, January 6, 2015 (EST)

P.S. I'm a bit late, but "erection" has a completely nonsexual meaning; it means "mounting, to put up". You do this to flags, poles, towers, and anything.
P.P.S. Considering your recent disruptive and untrustworthy behavior regarding spam and vandalism, my question is if giving I.P.s the right to create talk pages is even worth it. Mario Signature.png 17:36, January 6, 2015 (EST)

What SuperHamster and I are trying to communicate is that you are actually more anonymous by creating an account. If you have an account, only high ranking staff members can view details such as your IP, City/State, and computer information. But if you do not create an account, your IP will remain public and anyone can view it or use it to trace your location. A quick Google search of your IP reveals several other wikis you are (or were) active on, each of which you appear to be known for making disruptive edits on. My point is, you aren't as anonymous as you think by remaining unregistered. We do not intend on changing our permissions to allow IPs to create talk pages any time soon because on average, and as demonstrated, registered users tend to hold themselves more accountable for their edits than IPs do. --Jake 22:13, January 6, 2015 (EST)

But if you search up "erection", you'll mostly find results about the sexual meaning of the word. --50.136.149.237 15:54, January 8, 2015 (EST)

I'll let this go for now (between you and me, edit-warring with you about something as trivial as this would make my Administrator application look bad) but if you continue to revert admin edits, one of the higher-ups will block you again. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:47, January 9, 2015 (EST)

Reverting admin's edits isn't bad per se, but continuously reverting our edits qualifies as edit warring, which isn't desirable behavior for either user. Red Snapper, however, has already established himself as a trustworthy user. We've said before, you have a bad record and you're not making much better improvements despite some good edits you've made. At this rate, you can face another block, even longer if this keeps up. Mario Signature.png 18:29, January 11, 2015 (EST)

If I ever do create an account on Nookipedia, it will be called "Serena". If you see an account with that name, it's likely to be me unless it was created in 2015(the current year for now) or 2016 as I won't create any accounts in those years.

--50.136.149.237 18:32, May 25, 2015 (EDT)

Noted. I don't see any downsides into creating an account, though. It's easier to remember "Serena" than BoN (bunch of numbers) for starters. Mario Signature.png 20:40, May 25, 2015 (EDT)

Net / Toy Hammer[edit]

We'll get an answer on the capitalization policies eventually, but in the meantime, you need to follow them and not edit war if you want to keep your editing privileges. Thank you! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 15:30, January 14, 2015 (EST)

Regarding this, I have blocked you (50.136.149.237) for 24 hours for editing against policy and counter-productive edit warring. Our policy is there to set out standards that the community has agreed upon - if you disagree with it, you are more than welcome to initiate a discussion on it (either at the Community Fountain or the Bulletin Board), but you should not edit content against policy or continue to edit war as Red has explained. Edit warring is counter-productive, compared to discussions. ~SuperHamster Talk 19:26, January 14, 2015 (EST)

Vandalism[edit]

Thanks for fighting the vandalism the website has just had, it's much appreciated! I'm taking measures to ensure that the edit-warring does not continue. Thanks again! (or as Tom Nook would say, "Thanks much!") Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 13:11, May 20, 2015 (EDT)

yay!

--50.136.149.237 13:12, May 20, 2015 (EDT)

Yeah, wasn't here to stop it myself, but anyhow, it's much appreciated the vandal was kept at bay. Thanks! Mario Signature.png 23:14, May 20, 2015 (EDT)

e[edit]

My sister will be away from the computer!

--50.136.149.237 14:15, May 22, 2015 (EDT)

Heh, no worries. Mistakes happen to all of us! :) Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 14:18, May 22, 2015 (EDT)

Please be careful next time. If your sister vandalizes from your I.P. address, you will be held responsible and will get blocked regardless. Please let her know that vandalizing is unproductive, wastes our time and energy, and it's not even funny 99% of time. We take these kinds of edits seriously, even if we can swiftly undo them. But anyhow, I suggest discussing with your sister about it next time. Mario Signature.png 19:35, May 22, 2015 (EDT)

I told her(she thinks that some vandalism she saw is funny).

--50.136.149.237 19:39, May 22, 2015 (EDT)

All right then. Take care! :) Mario Signature.png 19:41, May 22, 2015 (EDT)

Vandal userpages[edit]

Please do not create userpages related to vandals. I also do not suggest creating a category for vandal users as it draws attention to them. Most of the time, vandals get indefinitely banned on sight and that's it for them. Mario Signature.png 19:34, May 24, 2015 (EDT)

I dunno why I did that.

--50.136.149.237 19:36, May 24, 2015 (EDT)

Huh, probably must've been an accident. Mario Signature.png 19:39, May 24, 2015 (EDT)

Your new article[edit]

I don't think cupid bench qualifies for its own article because we feel it is more ideal if furniture are part of lists. You can, however, incorporate this furniture piece into our List of white furniture page. Unfortunately, I can't find relevant information on the cupid bench in City Folk, although the furniture has appeared in New Leaf. Mario Signature.png 20:07, May 24, 2015 (EDT)

Sockpuppets[edit]

Sysops in other wikis have a function called CheckUser that reveals the I.P. address (the location) for that user. I think it checks for any other user that shares the I.P. address. Since I do not have CheckUser (this is a admin privilege for bureaucrats here), I cannot confirm which user shares which I.P. address. If there is a recurring vandal, a range block will work. I think a range block is the most appropriate for this persistent buncho numbers vandal, but I can't do this. Mario Signature.png 20:02, May 29, 2015 (EDT)

A range block will not work, Mario. The first few digits of the IP address would need to be identical, and in this case they are all completely different. The only real solution is temporarily disabling IP editing like we did last September. I've started a topic on the staff forums about the issue, if you're interested. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 05:34, May 30, 2015 (EDT)

Where is the forum topic?

--50.136.149.237 13:36, May 30, 2015 (EDT)

D'oh, so I was wrong about the range block. Yeah, he's right: the I.P. range needs to be the similar bunches of numbers. As for what Red Snapper brought up, the forum topic is an admin-only discussion so I think you need to be promoted within this wiki. The thread is simply about this issue right now and our inputs about it. Mario Signature.png 15:23, May 30, 2015 (EDT)

Why can't I view it?

--50.136.149.237 15:24, May 30, 2015 (EDT)

As I said, it is an admin-only discussion. I showed you this link because that's where our forums are, and we do have a thread on this. Sorry for any inconvenience. :/ Mario Signature.png 15:26, May 30, 2015 (EDT)

Is there an option to change it so the thread can be viewed by anyone and only admins can post?(I'm curious about it!)

--50.136.149.237 17:57, May 30, 2015 (EDT)

The thread itself is in the staff discussion child board. We can move it out of the child board, but I suggest you ask SuperHamster about this. Mario Signature.png 20:52, May 30, 2015 (EDT)

Can't you ask him?

--50.136.149.237 22:01, May 30, 2015 (EDT)

nevermind I'll ask. --50.136.149.237 17:50, May 31, 2015 (EDT)

Hi there - I've replied on my talk page. The thread has been moved for public view. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:13, June 1, 2015 (EDT)
Yeah! That being said, we are considering to lock the wiki from I.P. editing for perhaps two weeks, depending on how serious the vandal attack is. It is a simple heads-up. Mario Signature.png 21:23, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

Maybe some or all of the vandals that vandalized in May such as 198.27.124.1 are friends/family of some of the others that vandalized in the same month.(and some might not know them)

--50.136.149.237 11:36, June 2, 2015 (EDT)

That could be possible but at the same time it could be the same user just changing the IP address to bypass the bans. It's hard to assume so that's why it's either all or nothing when it comes to bans. -BabyLuigi PiT sprite.pngBaby Luigi(Talk to me?) 11:57, June 2, 2015 (EDT)

Maybe you can change it so unregistered users can create talk pages after IP editing is not disabled anymore(and that IPs can't create user pages or any page)

--50.136.149.237 19:43, June 2, 2015 (EDT)

Oddly enough, that's what the consensus was. :) Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 11:40, June 3, 2015 (EDT)

Or what if you can change the settings so IP users can can create any page(not user pages) and talk pages.

--50.136.149.237 18:45, June 3, 2015 (EDT)

Not a good idea to continue letting IP users create pages, I'm afraid. The staff have decided that this will be cut off, because 99% of anonymous page creations were unconstructive. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 13:06, June 4, 2015 (EDT)

Is there a way to change it so IP users can't create user pages?(and that IPs can only create talk pages and no other page type)

--50.136.149.237 13:27, June 4, 2015 (EDT)

Jake could install namespace protection, but that would ban IPs from editing anyone's user page. Still, if IPs aren't going to be allowed to create non-talk pages at all, they won't be able to create user pages either way. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 13:34, June 4, 2015 (EDT)

Yeah but IPs don't have user pages and there's no reason for them to edit user pages.

--50.136.149.237 15:24, June 4, 2015 (EDT)

I believe it is possible to let only registered users to create user pages. Furthermore, we can even protect user pages so only the staff members and the user of the user page can edit them. Mario Signature.png 15:27, June 4, 2015 (EDT)

Undergrowth vegetation[edit]

Considering your recent creation on undergrowth vegetation, previously, we have deleted in per this discussion in its respective talk page. The page and its talk page have been deleted a while ago, but here is the discussion:

This is another unnecessary page, IMO. Like the doomed fish group pages, it'd be better as a category. What do you think? Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 14:21, May 22, 2015 (EDT)

Yeah, this is a useless oneliner article that is better served as a wiki category. Go ahead, Red Snapper. Mario Signature.png 19:30, May 22, 2015 (EDT)
Will do! Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 07:10, May 23, 2015 (EDT)

If you disagree, feel free to provide any input! Mario Signature.png 21:15, May 30, 2015 (EDT)


This article should be kept because we can put a lot of info about it on this page(a category could say a little bit about it, but not as much a page)

--50.136.149.237 18:21, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

I'm willing to add content, but if we simply just list it or add information already covered in the other pages, I see little reason to list this as a separate page rather than a category. For starters, what kind of content do you think should be added to undergrowth vegetation? Keep note that if undergrowth vegetation qualifies as a page, you must provide enough content to keep it as a page. If you cannot keep the page at least a paragraph or so in length in content (the standards are not sharply defined, but take that as a general guideline), then we should leave the page as a red link until we create a page large enough to be a stub. Finally, consider the reasons undergrowth vegetation was deleted in the first place: it is a small page that serves mostly as a list, and its name is most likely given by fans rather than an official category for the flora. Mario Signature.png 18:29, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

Page deletion[edit]

There is usually no reason to semi-protect a page after it has been deleted. If it is vandalism though, I delete it once. In most cases, I have to delete it only once. Only if it's recreated multiple times is usually when I resort to semi-protecting. For the most part, vandals aren't very patient users. Mario Signature.png 14:44, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

But if the title and/or content is just gibberish such as "rgkpogkeopgkowphkopkhpeokgop", then I think it should be protected because another person might re-create it. It doesn't have to be semi protected(if a registered user creates it again).

--50.136.149.237 15:04, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

Maybe, but if a vandal was really committed, they could simply create a nonsense page with a slightly different title, like "rgkgovxlasmdmsafksfm". We could be creation protecting pages all day if we had that attitude! Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 15:12, June 1, 2015 (EDT)
Exactly. There are a vast number of combinations of letters you can do. "rgkpogkeopgkowphkopkhpeokgop" has 28 letters. There are 26 letters in the alphabet. Using mathematics, the amount of letter combinations possible would be 2628, or 4.16 x 1039! That would be 416 with more than 30 zeros following it! The vandal can use ANY one of the 416 with 30+ zeroes nonsense words, and "rgkgovxlasmdmsafksf" would be a different page from "rgkgovxlasmdmsafksfm", so there's no stopping a vandal from creating nonsense pages if the vandal REALLY wants to. And that's from just the 26 letters of the alphabet. I didn't even factor in digits and special characters such as ä,Ę,ℳ,♠. You're right that stuff like "rgkpogkeopgkowphkopkhpeokgop" will never qualify for a page, but we shouldn't devote our energy to protecting these from being created. Mario Signature.png 18:39, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

Hey[edit]

Nookipedia has been temporarily locked from I.P. editing until 11:59 PM EDT June 15th, 2015 due to vandal attacks. Just a heads up! You can either wait through this or register and edit from there. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for reading! Mario Signature.png 21:52, June 1, 2015 (EDT)

I have a sister[edit]

That Baby Luigi person is, in fact, the worst enemy ever my identical twin sister. So yeah, I do have a sibling here who edits very occasionally. :) Mario Signature.png 14:49, June 2, 2015 (EDT)

Really? Why is she called Baby Luigi if Luigi(the character) is a boy? I always thought that user was a boy because of the name...hmmmm....

Villager info[edit]

As you're taking information from Thonky, take note that the vibe (e.g. "Fancy", "Old") are older names. In order to find the correct name, use this guide instead. Thanks, and good work! Mario Signature.png 20:08, June 20, 2015 (EDT)

What are the newer names of the older ones

--50.136.149.237 21:45, June 20, 2015 (EDT)

You added "Fancy" when the guide's equivalent is "Cute". As for the guide, if it says "Cute", then "Historical" for a villager, it means that the villager likes Cute items and dislikes Historical items. I thought it's pretty straight-forward? Use the GFAQs guide instead of the Thonky guide for villager clothing/furniture preferences. The names you're using right now is the reason the Villager Info template is not working 100% (the ideal gifts part). Mario Signature.png 15:07, June 21, 2015 (EDT)

Renaming[edit]

When renaming articles, please use the move function rather than creating a new article. That way, the history is preserved. Thanks. Additionally, I believe the actual term is "refurbish", so we're sticking with that. Mario Signature.png 22:34, July 15, 2015 (EDT)

Ignore most of what Mario said: IP users do not have the ability to move pages. Please request on the article's talk page instead. Thanks for your co-operation. Red (talk) Red Snapper WW Sprite.png 11:36, July 16, 2015 (EDT)
All right then, didn't know that. Thanks for pointing that out. Mario Signature.png 15:38, July 16, 2015 (EDT)

This is the discussion page for an anonymous user who has not created an account yet, or who does not use it. We therefore have to use the numerical IP address to identify them. Such an IP address can be shared by several users. If you are an anonymous user and feel that irrelevant comments have been directed at you, please create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
