Hello MDGeistMD02, I did that for many reasons. The main reason was that I tried to earn the Uruk-hai Berserker pin. But I did it also to improve the Wiki where I could. I failed to earn the pin, but i'm still proud for my actions today. Is that reassuring, MDGeistMD02?
You were gone for nearly a year, then come back and suddenly start changing the titles of several pages with nary a discussion about it ahead of time. You probably should have asked others if they thought the name changes were either:
1) an ideal title for the article
2) even necessary to begin with
While you seem to not have meant anything malicious by your actions, they do call into question why you even chose to make such random, and most likely unnecessary, changes to begin with.
That I was away for so long, that was because for that long it seemed that I could nothing do here anylonger. And I have more Wikies to improve. But when Middle-earth: Shadow of War was announced, I found the way back to return here. I hope that this answer all your questions.
Considering the volume of the black screen with the rolling ring is 35% of the game. Im gonna have to go ahead and disagree with your position on the matter. It is as much a part of the game as the murdering of pretty much everything that moves. People should be aware that they are gonna spend a lot of time staring at nothing in between menus. So no. it is not in fact useless. It is a public service. You are enabling developers to continue to release garbage. You should feel shame right along with them.
Feel shame for it? Dear user 126.96.36.199, this is a Wiki, a website what's similar to Wikipedia, only more focused on a separate topic. The way that you tried to reach the developers, that’s no way to do that. You take such information into a forum. I'll not give a full detailed explanation about this, I have better things to do.
Here I give you the text from what you had written:
"Shadow of Mordor is an excellent game, but its crippled by a never ending plague of a black loading screen. This is unacceptable. The gap between action and menus is far too vast, and i have quit playing for months at a time because of this single and unnecessary flaw. The developers owe an apology to each and every single person who bought this game. Individually and in writing. How dare they sell something that is broken like this for any price. There is nothing in the menu screen that warrants such a massive load time. The way these Orcs and Goblins seizure around. Pfffff. Garbage. The people who let this go to market should be ashamed of themselves for crippling the game like this, and should be reminded hourly until they ask for forgiveness."
But remember, this is something what can be used in a forum on this Wiki, not a article.
Bilbo Baggins is mentioned in Shadow of Mordor, perhaps indirectly. But that's enough reason that a article about Bilbo Baggins has the right to be here, at soon when there is useful information about him for in this wiki.
But Bilbo Baggins has no article on this wikia, we shouldn't link to empty pages. I have no issue with the reference itself being on the page but why link to a page that doesn't exist? it makes it look unprofessional and untidy. We can't make a page for a character that's vaguely mentioned in one line spoken by Gollum.
When SoM 2 comes out or is announced and Bilbo has some relevance, that's when we start linking his page all over the wiki. As it stands now its a pointless link without purpose.
I don't think so. Links, from articles which not are created on this wiki yet, on articles these are created here... My point is, that will encourage users here more to created such new articles. That will bring sometimes pleasant surprises, if you understand what I mean.
You're right that a Bilbo Baggins article is not very needed here, Joker. But it's not excluded that someone will create a Bilbo Baggins article on this wiki someday. He is at least mentioned in the game. That's reason enough that a Bilbo Baggins is allowed to be here.
By the way, Bilbo's name is for a long time in the template Navbox characters, even at the time that Mark came very often on this wiki. There is even a Shelob article here.
But shouldn't we just wait for that day to come and then start linking articles? for example you don't see the Assassin's Creed wikia creating a page for an assassin named Peter because maybe one day Ubisoft will name an assassin that.
Bilbo isn't even mentioned directly, Gollum says filthy Bagginses once and that's it. Its not substantial enough for a link.
Yeah I saw that, also alot of articles need to be either merged or deleted because we didn't know what would be relevant to the game's story line pre-release. But Shelob is a bit different because she is actually mentioned extensively in a few artifacts through out the game.
Is there some rule I am unaware of that says the apostrophes and the 's' are not supposed to be included in the link for the words?
I notice you have changed several of my edits regarding this, the latest being the Sauron's one from the War of the Ring page which I did just yesterday. I was never told otherwise, and don't want to come across as beginning an 'edit war' where we go back and forth on this.
If you could perhaps show me the rule in a Manual of Style or some other evidence that we aren't supposed to be doing this, then I will desist.
Heya Tim, How have you been? it seems like ages since we spoke. Not long now till the release, just over a month i think. I have been thinkinhg of topics that perhaps when we both have time we could discuss. These are the following...
- The new Celebrimbor story missions and will they be replayable or will they be a one time play?
- The main approach to Shadow of Mordor in terms of Stealth, Hardcore or Tactical way to go around the game.
- In the Sauron's Servants trailer, Mount Doom erupts after Sauron supposedly smashes into the ground. Could this mean that at some point we could see Mount Doom turn Mordor into the desolate wasteland we know from The Lord of the Rings?
Obvisouly i would work entirely around your plans if you would like to take these idea's and some of your own. You always have a good idea :) Just let me know when your free.
PS: Oh yeah i forgot to mention the name change, i felt Agandaur worked better and especially along with my avatar.
Oh yes? Then advance, happy birthday, Agandaûr. I understand your situation, then we do it another time. I don't know which other day yet. I am confident that one of us (you and me) will came with an new suggestion when we can chat together. Have a nice birthday, Agandaûr.
