Let’s stop clogging Talk Pages like this and let the Admins do their work.
The section has been alphabetized, but the page still has much work to be done. The protection is set to expire after a day but maybe I'll need to extend it. There is nothing you could possibly need to add to this page right now that you harass me about it on two separate posts. Now cool it. (And stop trying to call me like I'm your dog?)
I have just put a lot of work into that page and would like to work more on it. whatever
@Les: Hello, hope you don’t mind me barging in like this.
@Rope: Please read the following quotes:
“Your guys' trying to alphabetize the list is breaking the code, and I can't work on the page effectively when there are editing conflicts.” And, “You have to be careful of the way the cells of the wikitable are set up or else it will become completely destroyed like this. It's very delicate and requires more than just copy-pasting sections around.” - Les.
“If you start editing a page and someone else publishes their own edit before you publish theirs, it creates an edit conflict, requiring you to paste your changes back into the altered page, an extremely time-consuming process when dealing with the complex code contained in these tables. You're editing the page so frequently you're effectively blocking Les from fixing your coding errors.” - Astounding Beyond Belief.
Do you know what that means? They’re trying to tell you that editing conflicts will mess up the codes within a page. They know what they’re talking about, and I don’t even wanna know what would happen if something like that happened to a page. Have a good rest of the evening.
Okay Somebody tell me what is going on
Okay, I give up.
They just did.
I am confused
Read SkullIslandExplorer's post.
I did but it makes no sense to me. dumb it down for me
Your edits (if you keep doing what you're doing) will mess up the code on the page.
oh okay so i can continue when he is done
Just ask him when the page is ready and maybe we'll have a talk page for organizing times to work on it.
I have no idea what SkullIslandExplorer's talking about. It is not the edit conflicts causing the issues of the page, it's the sloppy editing of the table that breaks it. The edit conflicts just prevent us from doing something about it. This is a very extensive page and requires more than copy-pasting entries around and throwing dates into it. It still needs to be thoroughly organized and restructured, and it's something we need to handle. Your wanting to help is appreciated, but it isn't doing us any good right now.
.... yeah, sorry about that. I’m not too smart when it comes to this tech stuff.
^Since someone is going to invariably ask for a dumbed-down version:
Your edits aren't up to the standard the site requires. The goal isn't to do as many edits as quickly as possible, it's to keep up the general appearance of the rest of the site. Continuing to sloppily edit just for the sake of editing is causing errors that are breaking the page's code.
The page is locked because the admins had to go in and manually fix all those errors. They couldn't leave the page unprotected because you guys are editing so fast and so frequently that you're canceling out the admins' work.
To Rope and MinecraftJoe
Take a break to think about how low quality your edits are.
.... or, maybe we can do the old fashioned way of fixing up other pages on this wiki, instead of having tunnel vision on specific ones. The fact that you focus entirely on the Godzilla in popular culture page instead of helping to contribute to the other 3,219 pages on this wiki baffles me.
Oh, and if you’re going to edit other articles, don’t swarm pages with edits, or the Admins will have to do this again (and I’m saying that because it’s very evident). And I’d prefer if we don’t mess up page codes, ‘cause that would suck. Just sayin’.
Hey, I have been doing other pages, just I was the original one to notice this, or at least bring it to mind of everyone. Rope is the one who is constantly working on it. I just do a few organizations on it sometimes (which I thought were helpful) and then work on other pages. Everyone, dont get angry at me about this.
yo at least I do the work unlike some people who tell other people to do it
Your missing the point.
Okay guys, I think we’ve clogged Les’s Talk Page enough. How about we just learn from this, put this behind us, let bygones be bygones, and move on with our lives? Does that sound like a good idea? I think so.
@Les, Sorry about the mess. Be safe and have a good day.
Vader raptor) Who cares Skull) Thanks
