Happy Tuesday, Zatalliya!

Welcome to my message wall! Drop questions and concerns below. I remove ordinary messages from the talk page as soon as I've replied, so don't worry about not seeing our conversation here. I'd much rather talk to you on Discord, though.  Jess#1144

TAKE NOTE

  • I'm a full-time university student and a full-time employee. This is a delicate balance that means I'll usually be on my phone.
  • It's she.
  • I prefer to voice chat on Tuesdays. If you need to call me on Discord, that's when. Coronavirus f*cked up my times. Just msg me.
  • Discord is my preferred communication method.
  • English. Though I've been in the States for years, I'm Taiwanese. My English isn't perfect.
  • If my coding is f*cked, let me know before you try and fix it yourself. Chances are, I'm working on it already.
    • I cannot properly answer your coding questions. I learned from the internet.
    • I wrote it like that because it looks good.
  • It's okay to not be an expert. If you need clarification on something (no matter how inane you may think it is), I will never be upset with you.
    • I believe there is no such thing as a stupid question.
  • Telepathy is intrusive and Mind Control is a violation of bodily autonomy.

CORONA UPDATE 3

  • I will have more free time as I have left my university campus. Discord's still the best place to reach me, though.

  • If it was simply radiation resistance, then homer wouldn't have been affected by the radiation and he wouldn't be glowing.

    In other words the entire scene would have been different if that was the case.

    But if you watch the whole video, you will see that homer actually shakes off the radiation poison like a dog shaking water off its coat.

    That's very clearly an example of Negation. Because he actually cancelled the effect of radiation and walked away as if everything was fine.

    Please stop removing him from the page. He is a user, and the event is not a gag and is taken quite seriously by others (because he almost caused a disaster/meltdown twice)

    I wouldn't have added him to the page if it was just a gag.

    If it was a one off joke with no other mention and no seriousness, then he wouldn't be considered a user.

    But it happens twice, and is mentioned both times in a serious tone so it counts as an example.

    • In your own opinion, what would consider being an example of Effect Negation?

      I thought the example of Homer was close to what the power was trying to describe. Sure it might not be a perfect example of it, but the basic idea is similar to what negation is.

      Sure he was only affected by radiation, but it also caused a change in his personality which he also negated at the same time when he shook off the effects of it.

      Besides, this isn't the first time things like this have happened in the series. For a series spanning more then 600 episodes, they're plenty of times Homer has done things just like this (and I'm not talking about the treehouse of horror episodes)

      I just thought it was a good example since its once of the earliest times in the series he has done it.

      Whether or not its the best case of Homer doing this, it still should at least count for something.

      Anyway, the point of the matter is what we should regard as an effect and how its considered negated.

    • If anything, the effect negation page SHOULD be a landing page for various types of <effect> negation powers, but the page instead seems to point to being able to negate effects bestowed by other powers/their users or those of a supernatural origin. The thumbnail picture states the character can negate the effects of any curse, so I guess that's more like it. As for characters not on the list, Touma Kamijou (A Certain Series) has also directly negated effects on him by using his right hand on himself, namely the effects of telepathy just by touching his head or the effects of magic when it's used on him. But ideally, I do want it to be a landing page of sorts, as do I want the same for a few other pages that encompass multiple powers.

      It doesn't help Homer's case that The Simpsons is more or less a comedy (where half the things are really played for a joke), and that there isn't much consistency in terms of "powers" shown on screen. Sure, maybe he belongs on the thick skull page because that's a thing apparently. But trying to shoehorn Simpsons characters onto power pages that are a bit more specific and aren't as explicit, isn't really going to work out.

  • Just wanted to see what you thought about my Personal Chemical idea. Basically, it's where the individual creates their own specialized chemical substance. No one else doe it the way they can. It often has supernatural effects. That sound okay? Just checking.

  • Hi. Do mind deleting Gestalt Monotheistic Deity Physiology?

    It already made once before in the past by ChocolateElemental, but it was deleted because it was either to similar to existing power or wasn't really a power at all.

    A new contributor remade the page without permission. So it needs to be deleted once more.

      Loading editor
    • What's wrong with the page in the first place? I'm just curious since I don't know why it was deleted to begin with — anyway, I'll probably just move it to Sandbox since it isn't poorly made.

  • hello! @Zatalliya, I have a new power idea. It’s called Omni-Weapon Proficiency. The power to use absolutely anything as a lethal weapon. Even things that wouldn’t normally hurt anyone could be used to seriously injure others such as a feather or a pillow. One user of this power is Iihiko from Medaka Box.

    As for the question, will super powers with no known users be deleted? Because I’d like to re-create otherness empowerment.

    • Whatever you say then.

      Never mind @Zatalliya.

    • Powers with no KUs will be migrated to the sandbox or moved to blogs and will only be deleted if they're duplicates of existing powers.

      As for Omni Weapon Proficiency, I think Known Users is a bigger problem than the power itself. You're free to make it in the sandbox but until someone finds a Known User it'll have to stay there.

  • Greetings. Hope you are safe and well. I had three power ideas, all of them being personal powers. I just wanted to see if it was okay to make them.

    1. Personal Capacicitance - the ability to control one's personal ability to hold an electrical charge. One can control their own ability to maintain as big or low charge they wish.

    2. Personal Game - the ability to have a personalized game whose rules the user can control and various effects and consequences (potentially reality altering ones) the owner can manifest.

    Hope these are okay. Thank you for your time.

    • 3. Personal Mutation - the ability to control, alter and/or enhance mutations in one's own body.

        Loading editor
    • I suppose Electricity Absorption covers the first one. Personal Mutation also can be covered by an extra limitation in mutation manipulation that says 'User may be restricted to changing one's own genetic makeup' or something.

      Personal Game is an interesting power and I think I can see that on the wiki. Do you have any known users?

        Loading editor
    • I do have users. As for the other two, it is unfortunate that they will not work, but I have another idea: Personal Chemical. This is where the individual can create their own specialized chemical substances, changing them to their specs according to need. As with Personal Game, I have users. How's that?

  • Can you please give the user Mega Bigman a timeout?

    He keeps replacing the categories with candidates for deletion on valid pages. And this isn't even the first time its happened, as he has repeated this sort of behavior 5 times at last count.

    I don't know why he thinks the pages aren't valid, but considering he is a repeat offender for this sort of behavior a block is probably a necessary step.

    He has even been asked in the past not to remove categories or to stop adding candidates for deletion on valid pages.

    I would rather not have this sort of thing happen again, as we would have to lock the pages. But considering how many times he has done this some action is needed.

    thanks for your help.

    Sometimes he edits them normally, but other times he just removes the categories or posts candidate for deletion. Even if the page is considered valid or has been on the wikia forever.

  • Hi, the user CGibling keeps trying to post what is clearly fanmade/fanon content on the wikia.

    He claims that it isn't fanmade, but a search reveals it was written by him and the only source for it is a wikia in his name.

    He keeps trying to revert the edits when Arquetion removes it, even though Arquetion is well within his rights to remove the content since its fan material.

    He made the series and the characters, which means by definition its fanon/OC material.

    Can you please explain to him that he can't post it on here? He won't listen to reason and claims that reverting his edits is considered vandalism. Even though he shouldn't be posting it on the wikia anyway.

    • If all published content is considered valid for this wikia, then were going to have to change the rules again. 

      Because some things are not considered valid even if its published material (doujinshi's are the best example of this).

      I'm just trying to do my job as a contributor. There is no information available on the users works online, not even a basic or general search reveals anything.

      In cases like that, we can't help but realize that the work is fan material. Because there's nothing else it could possibly be if you can't find a single relevant piece of information regarding it online.

      I would like your opinion on this matter so things like this don't keep happening. Because otherwise its going to cause future problems for other users.

      Some material is going to be regarded as fanon even if its from a published work, and we have to decide what the dividing point of that is so this doesn't escalate again....

    • You conveniently left out that two administrators replied to you.

      Necrotifice and Holokami have both stated what I would have said in that case, that his work is valid because it is published. It's not that he wrote for the wiki, he just wrote the story and happens to want his characters on the site. And bout the rules? I'm working on those with the very admins you've forgotten to mention regarding what's published and what isn't.

      I'm not going to give my opinion this time, I'm going to bring about a full-on policy change. Because we have an insane amount of non-valid users on various pages such as commentary works and gags, we can't just casually draw the line at a lesser-known work of fiction.

      Could you at least give the full context the next time you want something?

    • Thanks for replying.

      Anything that can improve the quality of the wikia and make it easier to understand the distinctions of what users are accepted will be a great help.

  • Why are the categories being removed from the wikia?

    I noticed that the Rare and Common powers pages were deleted or are being removed from pages.

    Those categories are necessary for the function of the wikia and to tell when scrollboxes are needed.

    I don't see the reason to delete them since they serve a function for the various pages on the wikia.

      Loading editor
    • They aren't.

      "Common powers" and "Rare powers" imply how frequently occurring the powers are in fiction. Of course some powers are going to be rare, and others are not going to be. But we aren't the ones to make that distinction

      You can look at a page and decide whether or not a scrollbox is needed. You can count the number of items in a list. A category doesn't need to do that for you or anyone.

  • Hi. Regarding my problems with leadership on this site, I think that the whole random selection thing is a bad idea. My past experiences with admins or anyone with a high position on this wiki involves them demanding sources over and over (while not sending a single source themselves) then finally, after wasting my time, telling me their wrong because they say so. 

    I didn't want to get specific, but take SageM for example. I'm obviously not the only one with this kind of experience with him, so how he got to be an admin is beyond me, unless kuo selected him...

  • Hello!

    I was concern about the Kangaroo Physiology page, its catagories keep vanishing after one or more is added. Did a test about it and brought the same result.

    Thats all, have a good day!
