The wiki holds that pages for deceased characters should be written in past tense, whereas living characters have pages written in present tense. As such, I reverted the edit you made to Adam's history page where you changed back to present tense what had been turned into the past tense to reflect his death.
I just wanted to be upfront on why I made such a big "undo" in case you'd find that edit and wonder why I did it.
Yeah there were a few of edits made at the time by another edit between my edit at the time and yours. All by Kunoichi101, but I won't say I'm certain that they're related because I haven't checked yet.
Edit: To be honest I only remember changing the result of that singular battle. Just that? Maybe I did forget.
Whatever happens, there's certainly been a lot of "back and forthing" on the page since. I hope the wiki can settle on a final edit since there's not gonna be anything new for him until we have enough reason for a "Legacy Section"
Copying and pasting large chunks out of a Wikipedia article into an article on the RWBY Wiki is completely unacceptable. The copied content has been removed from the article, and while the community may discuss whether or not we want the sections you proposed adding, we will not host sections stolen from another site.
Even if you state where you got it from, it is not proper etiquette to copy large chunks of an external article, and is still considered plagiarism. As for consequences, as long as this behavior does not occur again, there is no need for punishment beyond this message.
Also, I don't appreciate the implications in your posts that made it sound like I completely intended to commit theft with clear knowledge of consequence. I still remember that fiasco months back with some little shite calling me a creep for something a good chunk of this community actually does.
Come to think of it. I think this is the only place where I ever received the shortest end of the stick for "harassing" someone, who was supposedly "the victim", who seemed to take a bit too much joy in bleeding me out.
Which is why you shouldn't do 5 or 7 in a row, dude. I got an email notification every time, too. And while it's nice to be able to resolve several emails in one go, would still rather not get my inbox flooded or repeatedly encounter edit conflicts.
"Truth be told I have a weird feeling when it comes to drafts and final drafts." I'm not quite sure what you mean, but pretty much nothing is a final draft on a wiki.
Y'know the cliche'? "You don't fully appreciate something until it's gone." Well it's sorta like that. Unfortunate and inconventiant as it is, I seem to only fully comprehend what is accomplished or damaged until after they've been done. Hence the drafts and final drafts of the articles.
Just a tip, nothing's wrong. If you are not in source editor when copying and pasting stuff, weird formatting will show up around the text you pasted. It's been happening to everybody for the past couple of months for some reason.
Please take the discussion on the Menagerie description here where it's already started.
Unfortunately, since this is the second time you've received word from me on using edits and their summaries for discussion, and the recent behavior, this constitutes an official warning against edit warring. Continuing to do so may result in consequences, including being blocked.
This doesn't become a war until you repeat your own edit. I grant you that Grey should have given you an edit summary explaining his undoing of your work the first time, but the moment you undo the undo that is YOU escalating and provoking it.
When something like this happens, it's preferable for at least one of the parties to reach out for discussion, either in the comments or on the other person's message wall. Leaving a message on someone's wall gives them a notification, so that ensures that they'll know a discussion has started.
As for the debate over whether or not it was the Faunus who saw the gift of Menagerie as a slap in the face, I would actually say that it seems it was the Faunus, judging by Blake and Sun's conversation in the episode Menagerie. The summary that Sun gave was pretty much that the Faunus view the "gift" as the Humans giving them a terrible island, only 1/3 of which is actually safely usable, in the corner of the map just to get the Faunus to shut up.
I looked at a few transcripts and I couldn't find where its mentioned that Humans sought to legally confine Faunus to Menagerie. What's the source on that?
Also, for both you and Sentry, please use edit summaries when doing undoes. That bordered on an edit war just now without either of you communicating with the other. Even without a summary, please don't kneejerk undo someone undoing your work and open communication instead so that discussion can be clear.
