Harassment of Oxyaena[edit]

I've been seeing relentless harassment of Oxyaena in saloon, both from IP and named users. This is beyond childish, and there has been a severe absence of mod intervention. I don't care what bones users on the wiki have to pick with her, this is pissing me off. Minish (talk) 14:52, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, I banned the latest BoN to try their luck, doubtless someone will either revert the ban or the BoN will simply change their IP, but nothing much else I can do about it. Lord knows I've tried. Oxyaena Harass 14:56, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
I've been reverting the harassment as I find it and blocking the offenders. There isn't much more we can do. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:59, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
Which I appreciate, I've noticed. Thanks. With this kind of format there's not much we can do, I mostly have taken to trying to ignore it now, not let it bother me as much, but it's still makes participating in this community less welcoming. Oxyaena Harass 15:04, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for doing what you can. I didn't realise that there isn't much that can be done in the long-term. Minish (talk) 15:09, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Quick Question[edit]

Some of this place seems totally off the wall bat shit insane, and some of it seems serious and I can't tell what the intention is. So I'm asking if this wiki is ironic, or if some people use it as so and some people are serious, or if all of it's serious because I can't really figure it out. — Unsigned, by: 67.4.31.41 / talk

It's a bit of both. БaбyЛuigiOнФire🚓(T|C) 22:02, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
To answer your question: yes. ShabiDOO 22:58, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
This wiki isn't even insane compared to some of the thing ive see on Conservapedia ""helpmeimscared!"" (talk) 17:47, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
It's the internet, it has always been full of degenerates. GIFT and all. We try to get rid of the more toxic members, but, politics... SockPup (talk) 19:06, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Collapsing drama?[edit]

Hey, I wasn't sure if I am allowed to collapse drama threads. I am pretty sure a lot of users don't want to read about it in the saloon. If I did collapse it without being allowed to, let me know. — Godless Raven SDAPOe logo.svg talkstalkwalkbalk 🌹 Flag of Europe.svg 13:46, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

its normally encouraged to collapse obvious trolling. EK (talk) 14:01, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
well... not sure if the drama is quality-wise better than trolling tho — Godless Raven SDAPOe logo.svg talkstalkwalkbalk 🌹 Flag of Europe.svg 14:04, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
I collapse stuff a lot. Sometimes I get a bit carried away, to the point that HBC once scolded me for collapsing a few of those awful Oxy/Cory flame wars, if a bit harshly. (And of course, I collapsed some of GR's.) All this drama from HBC, GR, and Oxy has made this saloon bar that was supposed to be fun a toxic cesspool ruled by someone you can bait with a pointless poll that isn't even about her specifically- and her arch-nemeses' (also toxic) drama isn't helping either. Heck, I even invented the following new collapse:

What is this even used for[edit]

Why tf there a talk page for a talk page. lmao. A S E L A कुरा 02:04, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

I agree, it's a pointless page. It just calls to be vandalized because there are so few edits that vandals will have their name popping up in the fossil record. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 17:05, 27 January 2021 (UTC)
I assume it's used for that Ardbeg advertisement on top. Man, got to go buy me a bottle tomorrow. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 17:12, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

Brazilian guy making a Indie Game[edit]

So I have started to make a indie game in RPG Maker. It is an African themed RPG set in a ficional world inahbited by humans, furries , talking animals and spiritual beings. I even launched a very flaming manifesto Wrong Points in the Game Industry and Possible Solutions, both in English and Portuguese, to help create buzz about it. Most people torpedoed most of what I put in said manifesto, but anyway, I put the question in the table. Now I have the most hard part of the work ahead, actually starting to work in the development of the game. Wish me luck! KemalOliver (talk) 23:55, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
