  • Thanks for some of your refinements to the section. There were some ways your edit conveyed the story better than mine. I did change some, only minor, details about it, most notably the punctuation. You don't need to put a comma before "and" most of the time.

    As a rule of thumb, you only need to add a comma when the words that follow "and" can stand as their own sentence. Most of the time, that works, but I'm sure sometimes it's not the case. But it's a good rule to go by.

    I wanted to message you just so diffuse any "competing edits" or the like, so you understand where I'm coming from in the edit summary.

      Hello,

      Glad it met your standards, since you kept the spirit of the edit while only touching on the grammatical issues, so I'm quite happy.

      Anyway, glad you approve so much.  Take care.

  • Hey ...

    Did RT release the episode to the public today (to avoid conflict with Extra Life)?

    Or are we just taking things into our own hands?

      No, that partial transcript was made of the Episode 2 Sneak Peak, nothing more.  I simply fixed some dialogue and added some details.  I didn't mean to imply the episide was already released, which is clearly not the case, otherwise the entire transcript would be completed by now.

  • Alhazard, three pictures you just uploaded to the wiki have been deleted for being leaks. RT has not released them to the public yet, so make sure not to upload any images from the V5 trailer or any private screenings to the wiki, in keeping with our Spoiler Policy.

    • The rule is wiki wide, Alhazard. No spoilers or leaks uploaded to the wiki, and no links to spoilers or leaks on the wiki. Discussion on the appropriate Spoiler Thread is fine.

  • It is true that she will approve of Yang giving Adam his deserved beating but I saw in that episode that Adam is more skilled that Yang really is but trust me Adam be better wary of not finding Raven at all with this information because she might want for Yang to handle this herself but she will not hesitate to kill Adam at all for this action.

    The personality of Adam  in what he did to Blake and Yang will piss her off because he was psychotic to the point of obsession, and he seems sexually obsessed with Blake, and Raven is not a woman that tolerates men that do these things he has no tolerance for them she would either kill or take off both of his arms to prove her point remember if she is willing to kill a Hunter or Huntress without regret imagine what she would do to this guy.

    • Erm, I wouldn't too sure about Raven avenging Yang anytime soon, her main concern seems to be her tribe's welfare, watching over Yang is secondary.  And it seems she wants Yang to survive without her, maybe that was the whole idea, seeing herself as a bane to Yang rather than a boon.  And while Adam was more skilled in "Heroes and Monsters," next time will definitely be a different story, Yang won't fly headlong again lest she risk her life once more, Tai really drilled that point home in their sparring episode.  So Yang will opt to fight with her skills and use her Semblance as a last resort, rather than a first resort as she did during the Beacon Arc.

      Not to mention Raven's probably seen much worse than what Adam did to Yang during her tribal life, so such brutality might not offend her as much as you might believe.  I mean she felt no remorse over what befell Shion, nor any other village that she's beseiged.  So I doubt Raven will do anything to Adam, heck if she fights as foolishly as Yang did against Adam she might die.  If she gets hit by the Moonslice then she's basically a goner, why he spared Yang is still unknown, though in time he'll wish he finished her off in Beacon.  Bet on it.

  • You removed headings and their content from the Salem Affiliation page without discussion of any sort. This falls under the category of vandalism, but we also considered this a misunderstood, good faith edit hence only a warning was agreed upon.

    Your confusion on the matter could have been clarified if you had simply asked about it in the comments instead of putting yourself in the position of getting a warning.

    It has also been noticed, several times, that you like to rewrite articles with the addition of misinformation, which at times include word choices that are not accurate. While the misinformation has been addressed with you multiple times before, a new habit of going in and re-rewriting what has been undone has been noticed. This, while more subtle than an outright argument over a piece of trivia, also qualifies as edit warring. The most recent example would be your determination to change the description "taking into account" regarding Yang's Semblance on one of the pages. You changed it into something inaccurate; it was changed back; you changed it again into a different description. It was agreed to be left alone, but an eye kept out to see if you did it one more time. If such a habit keeps up, it will warrant an edit war warning.

    Regarding the use of the heading Affiliation: It is the name of the page, it is the topmost heading, and this is the structure for all character pages across the wiki. The intent behind the top heading Affiliation, for the more informed characters, is as you perceived. It is a group they were involved with in chronological order of their background. This is why "Salem's Faction" did not belong as a subheading at the top on Ozpin's page. With Salem's page, the information has come in so gradually, even before either our time here at the wiki, that the headings were created to reflect what knowledge existed. The only groups Salem can be associated with are the ones listed. If you want to propose removing group categories from Salem's Affiliation page as something that feels inconsistent with the other pages, please feel free to do so in the comment section.

  • Hi Alhazad,

    You are a decent writer and have an active mind, but your occasional habit of putting things not factual into articles has been ramped up lately. Your interpretation of things that happen in the show do not actually match the events that occur in the episodes. Some examples: Cinder destroying Ozpin's body; Ruby angry at learning Cinder is alive; Taiying being angry at Yang for not putting the arm on right away; Raven leaving "without a word."

    Some of them are you simply getting too creative with your word choice in such a way that it twists the information into something that isn't factual or confirmed. I am not sure if this is connected to your need to "pump up the drama" like before and you simply don't recognize that your new wording is making statements of things that don't happen or you genuinely don't realize that you're drawing speculative conclusions. I think it's a combination of both.

    I know that these are good faith edits and genuinely think you're good people ^.^ I am not trying to pick on you. Do try to stop and think about whether or not what you are adding to an article actually happened or was confirmed in the show. As Minomelo recently pointed out, we get over 70,000 people visiting this site every day. It's important to be accurate with our article content.

    Thanks!

    • Hello,

      I'm not trying to pump up the drama anymore, not with that Taiyang edit anyway, I admit "disheartened" is much accurate than "disgruntled."  As for Raven, I doubt she told anyone of her plans, or else Tai would've tried to stop her.  And yes, your description of Ruby being antagonistic towards Cinder is definitely more precise.  As for Ozpin, if he still had his own body he wouldn't have "moved on," so to speak.  It just seemed like common sense that he lost his old body hence why he's now in another.  Wasn't trying to be overly dramatic, just trying to read between the lines.  A good story doesn't need to beat its readers over the head with the facts, if it's done properly the readers can deduce the truth without it being shoved in their faces.  Metroid Other M was an example of really bad storytelling, where it feels like the writers are treating us like idiots by making things too obvious.  Thankfully RT isn't doing that, and I'm glad.  Thanks for the input, and have a wonderful day. :D

    • We're not telling a story. We're an informational resource. I even said to you in the message back in September that your word choices were changing the content into being misleading. Reading between the lines is fine; it does in fact makes for good storytelling. But adding your conclusions into articles as though they are factually what occurred is what is being brought to your attention. Do keep them in the discussions and out of the articles from here forward. Thank you and enjoy your day.

  • Alhazad,

    I am sorry that we didn't come to a better understanding about this the last time. Please stop rewriting articles as though you need to pump up the drama. This includes creating more than straightforward descriptions of the characters. Main space articles are meant to be informational, not a dramatic storytelling.

    • Hrm, alright, I'll try to refrain from adding any drama to the main articles.  Would it be alright for transcripts, or not even there?

      Anyway, I just edited the Ozpin's Group page, no drama added, only taking out unnecessary words and adding some explanations when needed.  Hope this is more appropriate to wiki rules.

    • I don't believe transcripts are the right place for dramatisation either, as they are meant to be what happens in the show directly transcribed to an easy to read format; it's meant to be very literal with no flowery phrases or extra descriptions.

      I read your edit to Ozpin's Group page, though, and it looks good to me.

    • Hi Alhazad. Thank you for trying to get a better understanding. I think that the difference between article writing about a fiction and actual fiction writing is something you're struggling with here. As I said before, you've definitely got skills, so please don't take any of this as not being supportive of you personally. 

      I do have some things about your most recent edit that I'm likely to change.

      [ [ Character's Full Name ] ] is fine. It doesn't need to be changed to [ [ Character's Full Name | Character's Full Name ] ] which is what happened. ETA: Ah, I see now what happened, the punctuation was changed to be included in the link: Name, ] ] That's also unnecessary.

      Some of the phrasing you've altered changed the implications of the content, and there's an abrupt switch to past tense.

  • Hey there, Alhazad!

    I think you got a touch too carried away at the end of your edits to the Ozpin vs. Cinder battle page. There are places in the forums for sharing and supporting colorful narrative, but main article space should be informational. Also, don't forget to include your edit summary, per site rules.  

    I really do enjoy seeing you edit articles. It's nice to see the language touched up a notch and tightened, like when you edited Qrow's affiliation page, and like what you did with Cinder melting the floor. You've definitely got skills. :-)

    • Hello,

      Sorry if I got a bit too... colorful, I see too many people using the characters' names over and over again, so I've striven to be more creative at identifying characters.  And... I was trying to capture some of the dramatic tenstion of the scene (^^;;), I'll try to avoid that in the main articles in the future.  Thanks for the tip.

    • Oh, I get you. I've got my own ... well, not quite pet peeves, but I can't think of a better word at the moment. Repeated use of the same word too close together, and overuse of "then" or "says" are a couple of them.  On another wikia I specifically have the mission known as "shock reduction" because the animanga involves so many reaction shots the previous users just used "shock" to describe everything. I once edited a page that had the word shock in it 25 times.

      So we're kindred spirits, Alhazad ^.^
