Is that huge corvid from Dark Souls a crow or a raven[edit]

I think it's an oversized crow because the beak proportions are like a crow's, and its nasal bristles aren't extensive as they are on a raven. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 21:24, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

You mean the one that carries you from the Asylum to Firelink? I think it's a crow. By looking up the differences between Crows and Ravens, I agree with your assesment on the beak and the bristles. There is also the fact that the bird flaps it's wings quite heavily, which is behavior more associated with crows (Ravens tend to soar more). Furthermore it's tail is a clean circle of feathers (source I found calls it "like a fan"), which indicates it's a crow. Ravens on the other hand have a tail that's more pronounced in it's individual feathers (giving them a pointy tail and the source calls it "like a wedge"). It would also make sense from a lore perspective to be a crow, since it's likely related to Velka, Goddess of Sin, who is heavily associated with crows. The Crow (talk) 21:41, 11 December 2019 (UTC)
The source, I'm guessing, is telling the difference between the American crowWikipedia's W.svg and the common ravenWikipedia's W.svg,. Finally, you can tell between a crow and a raven from the noise they make; crows caw while ravens croak. I think the crow you see in Dark Souls is based on the carrion crowWikipedia's W.svg. Comparison between the birds here. Carrion crows are the common crow of Europe, and Dark Souls lore is based on medieval Europe I'm guessing. But that's how that crow should be based from, can't say for sure if the developers actually do know their crows. After all, I've heard American crows cawing in that gritty Tomb Raider reboot despite the setting taking place in some fictional island in Japan. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 03:32, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, true. I don't recall the crow in Firelink making any noises though. As far as the crow they went for, it's probably a Carrion Crow, since Bloodborne has enemies that are explicitly called Carrion Crows and From tends to be pretty good in researching things for their fantasy worlds. Birdid seems like a really interesting site, I'll keep that one bookmarked! The Crow (talk) 08:40, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

You removed my test article, and it wasn't plagiarized article[edit]

Iit was going to be used as a model to explain how DRM is malware but you deleted it, I was using it to help learn the markup wiki language. Please don't remove my stuff until I'm done editing it, I will mark the page with "TEST PAGE" in the future so that you don't remove it. Mon333 (talk)

I literally found the same page on MalwareWikipedia's W.svg. That's called plagiarism. If you want to experiment, use your user sandbox. The Crow (row row fight the power) 14:24, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

Raven incidents[edit]

To be clear, I am keeping up with the list. User:Godless_Raven/sandbox (so far, only 2 of the 8 accusations of editwarring are true). Also, the slavery article was me literally going to the talk page to ask users about an edit that someone else made, not me. — Godless Raven SDAPOe logo.svg talkstalkwalkbalk 🌹 Flag of Europe.svg 18:21, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

As a gesture of peace, I deleted the page. I hope you do the same so that we can talk about our differences, either here or on discord. Hit me up if you want to make peace and discuss things like adult. — Godless Raven SDAPOe logo.svg talkstalkwalkbalk 🌹 Flag of Europe.svg 21:15, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Your archive bot[edit]

I roled it as a bot, however I did as you may have noticed remove the sysop role from it. Generally speaking it's recommended to avoid running adminbots unless absolutely necessary for short runs that require it to have admin tools. There are various reasons for this which are explained on Wikipedia, most of which apply here too. EK (talk) 11:43, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Alrighty, and yeah I get why on further thought. Just wasn't sure at first due to me not having a full understanding of how the bot worked at the time of writing. As long as it can edit + create pages it should be good though. Writing up docs for it now. The Crow (row row fight the power) 11:48, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
