WelcomeEdit

Hi, welcome to Supernatural Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Chupacabra page.
Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help you with anything!
Also note that we are in the process of converting articles written in the present tense to the past tense. So you are welcome to edit any such article you come across. Once again, Welcome! Dtol (talk) 16:46, March 5, 2018 (UTC)

Spam-editingEdit

In the future, please try making all of your edits in one go; especially on short pages. Zane T 69 (talk) 02:01, March 6, 2018 (UTC)

JoiningEdit

You're very much welcome! I should thank you; we're always happy to have new users! Dtol (talk) 23:54, March 9, 2018 (UTC)

BlockedEdit

From what I can tell, there's nothing on the talk page or your block log to suggest that you've been blocked. Some users have been having trouble with editing pages, but classic editor seems to work. Could you tell me what happens when you try to edit a page? Dtol (talk) 07:49, March 15, 2018 (UTC)

Sure! That would be a good idea. I'll see what happened. Dtol (talk) 16:46, March 15, 2018 (UTC)

I see. I checked your edit, and I think you do have a good point since super stamina is under the standard powers of a deity. I can't exactly speak on behalf of Zane or WG18 for undoing your edits, but in the future, I think it's best not to mass edit in one go, especially if you're using an IP address, since there can be a lot of vandalism issues with anonymous users. Normally, when I do an edit that I'm not sure about, especially when I was a new user, I wait for a while before doing similar edits to other pages so that anyone who disagrees can undo the edit, or a discussion can be brought up with it. 

This can happen with new users, since the community is unaware of your intentions, and an innocent mistake may look like vandalism and result in a block. I actually have one block that was caused by a problem I sometimes have with the classic editor! :) The mass editing was most likely the reason for your block, and I apologise for that, because you seem to have good intentions and edit in good faith.

For now, if you want to put super stamina on every deity's page, you could start a discussion on the Deities Talk Page to stop this from happening again. Personally, I agree that super stamina should be added, but community consensus is important on the wikia, so asking others would help a lot. If this happens again, feel free to leave a message on my talk page, and if the edit had good intentions, I can explain the situation to the other admins and remove the block from your records. 

Do you want anything to be done about the IP block? It seems separate from your account and it has already expired, so I'm not sure how much it would impact your current editing. Once again, I'm sorry about the block, since it does seem unfair on your part, considering that you wanted to better the page.

Happy Editing! (I hope this answers your question) Dtol (talk) 17:44, March 16, 2018 (UTC)

About your block, you claimed Plutos had eternal stamina, and for Mercury "infinite" stamina. This can viewed here. Zane T 69 (talk) 18:31, March 16, 2018 (UTC)

You're very much welcome. I understand how hard it is when you first start editing, but it does get a lot easier! :) Dtol (talk) 20:10, March 16, 2018 (UTC)

Spam EditingEdit

Editing a lot of pages is fine, if whatever you're doing to each page is acceptable and seen as constructive by the community. The main issue with spam editing is users that edit the same page multiple times within a short time period, especially if the page is short, the user is correcting the same kind of information and the user wasn't correcting an error with their own editing. This spam editing can also be if the user edits the page in the same way over multiple days and on each day, multiple times. An example would be [1] or [2], where you can see the spam editing by a user.

If you're worried that your edits will be seen as spam editing, then put an edit summary explaining the edits you are doing, which will then clearly show that your edits were done in good faith. Also, everyone makes mistakes - you might need to edit the page you just edited because you accidentally left a red-link, you just saw a typo, etc. etc. No one should consider that spam editing, especially if you're not a serial offender, and you add relatively large amounts of information to the page. An example of editing multiple pages across short time frames here: [3] and [4] .

I've noticed with your super agility edits, that you're adding creatures to the list one at a time. If you're worried about spam editing, then you could always keep the page open and add as you find another creature instead of publishing after each addition. Additionally, after you've proved yourself to the community by doing a wide variety of edits in good faith, they will know you are not purposefully 'spam editing' to increase your own edit count. I mainly am the only editor on the Primordial Entities page, and have done some edits in quick succession that might have been considered as 'spam', see [5] but most are over longer periods of time, and given the complexity of the page and my normal edits, was ok.

It gets a lot easier the longer you spend on the wikia and the more frequent your edits.

I also think you're doing a great job! Keep up the good work! :) Dtol (talk) 12:06, March 18, 2018 (UTC)

Unless I'm mistaken, we avoid listing unknowns as unknown. It's redundant and kinda pointless. I was and am very tired and not working at a 100%, so I was making some sloppy edits. Zane T 69 (talk) 22:28, March 19, 2018 (UTC)

There isn't really any tension, everyone makes mistakes and some are small and some are huge. While those mistakes don't really require forgiveness, I do forgive you. Zane T 69 (talk) 23:09, March 19, 2018 (UTC)

It's pretty much what Zane said. That information is unnecessary for those pages, since the majority of creature pages don't need an alpha/creator section. It's just not common enough, as well as unknown being something that should be minimised on pages. It is very difficult for new editors to contribute to a community they're most likely unfamiliar with, and there is a learning curve, but we're always happy to lend a hand and make your time on the wikia easier and better. Dtol (talk) 00:10, March 20, 2018 (UTC)

EmailEdit

Have you checked your spam, or searched directly for community@fandom.com in your email? You could always go on 'My Preferences' on your user profile (the little drop-down box at the top of the page) and go to the e-mail subsection - check that your email is correct and that the disable emails isn't on. I hope that helps! If you have any problems, feel free to leave another message. Dtol (talk) 14:59, March 28, 2018 (UTC)

EditingEdit

I wondered if you use source editor to edit, since some of your edits uses longer code than needed like [6] this. Using source editor would help you to make 'cleaner' edits. Thanks! Dtol (talk) 14:59, March 28, 2018 (UTC)

Source or classic editor, I meant. What do you mean by the source button? Can you see the actual code? Super Strength|Super Strength was one of your edits, although minimising code would mean that Super Strength is preferred. Dtol (talk) 07:01, March 29, 2018 (UTC)

That's weird. It should show you the code, and that would minimise extra code. You should be able to use the source editor in the same way as classic. What exactly are you seeing on the source editor, and how are you editing on it? (e.g. give code example of an edit or something).

Sorry to bother you by the way; it's just that if this problem was sorted out, there would be a lot less need for clean-ups. Dtol (talk) 13:04, March 29, 2018 (UTC)

I see. By using the 'normal mode' to edit, I assume you are highlighting text and attaching links to it that way? (Please correct me if I'm wrong) While that is a perfectly fine way to edit, for longer-term users with many more edits, it can lead to unnecessary code and repeated follow-up corrections using the classic editor. If you use the classic editor, it would be a tremendous help, because it would minimise the amount of code that you insert into a page, and make it easier to load, but it's up to you.

Thanks! Dtol (talk) 11:52, March 30, 2018 (UTC)

MythologyEdit

From looking at the Borderwalker page and looking it up, I don't think that they exist in real-world mythology. Regarding the Inuit mythology, I don't know what pages you were looking at and what exactly you have already found, but http://www.inuitmyths.com/index.htm and http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/inuit-myth-and-legend/ may be useful. Dtol (talk) 10:09, April 10, 2018 (UTC)

You're welcome, but I'm there's no need. I'm happy to help and you did all of it! :) Um... I'm not entirely sure why it's so limited, but if I had to guess, it would be that because there were so many tribes, a myth about a particular being with vary widely and various myths would fluctuate over time, and because there was so many, there was never really definitive myths that got passed down? I guess it would also depend on what happened to the tribes and how the civilisations ended, but I don't really know. Dtol (talk) 15:22, May 9, 2018 (UTC)

Classic EditorEdit

When I used the source editor, it didn't seem much more different from the classic editor, except it doesn't have a colour coding scheme. Classic Editor just takes a while to get used to, but because it's very similar to the source editor, you shouldn't be having too many issues with it. Since you're already using source editor, I'm not sure if any tips I have would be useful to you.

Could you give me examples of the difficulties you're having with the classic editor? I might be able to offer more specific advice. Using Source Editor is perfectly fine, although I'm pretty sure the majority of long-term editors use Classic, because its colour-coded scheme makes it easier to spot mistakes. I'm not sure about the whole recommended thing; I just think that most find it easier to use Classic.

I don't know much about South American or African mythology, sorry, but I'm 90% sure they would have a few shapeshifter creatures/demonic creatures to explain diseases and most myths commonly have a shapeshifter/voice mimicker to prevent children from running off, lest they get kidnapped. I'm not sure how many of those they would have, although if I had to hazard a guess, if would not be that many. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Good luck on your project by the way! :) Dtol (talk) 19:54, April 17, 2018 (UTC)

If you don't like using the Classic Editor, you don't have to. Your edits of late have been of higher quality and you seem to be checking them a lot more frequently, which is great. If you're more comfortable with the Source Editor and prefer to stick with that, do that. Your edits are perfectly fine. If you want to try out the Classic Editor, go ahead, and if you have any other issues with it, you could always ask me. I'm happy to make your time on the wikia easier. :) Dtol (talk) 22:08, April 17, 2018 (UTC)

NetflixEdit

Sorry about the late reply. I've been quite busy over the past week or so and haven't had time to check the wikia. About your question, I actually don't have Netflix, so I don't really know about different release dates, although I imagine it would be the same. shrugs Sorry that I can't be more helpful.
