Lol all good, message all you want! I'm not really sure what the issue that you're talking about is. If it were another homophobic content, but all it says is 'deleted', it means that a moderator has already gotten to it and removed it :)
The image policy talks about images having a purpose, and if an image is not used on an article or fanon it becomes a candidate for deletion. And with the way message walls work, attaching an image actually uploads it.
I've removed the second comment because it is both irrelevant and the attitude definitely borders, if not leaps directly into, homophobia. I hahve left the first, though, because people saying that a character is heterosexual is not actually homophobic.
Hi. I'm not trying to be a bother, but I see that my edits keep getting undone on Amon's article. I didn't want to edit it again (as this would likely constitute as an edit war), but the section includes the incorrect usage of a comma. There should be a comma where I added one as well as where you just removed one. It's not a big deal; if you'd like to keep it as it is, that's your call. I was just trying to correct the grammar on the article and wondered why my edits were getting rolled back.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'rolled back'. I understand the concept, but for the four edits you've done, only one has been changed afterwards and that was me removing a comma in the sentence. I don't agree that there should be a comma where I removed it, though I agree that there could be. I find it more grammatically incorrect to use four commas in a sentence that isn't even that long.
If I were to edit it again, I would change it to use a semicolon instead of the comma before the 'and', and then re-add the comma that I removed after your edit. I definitely agree that the original sentence structure needed improvement.
The sentence requires a comma after "over the years," as this is an introductory clause, and the comma I added is necessary because it separates two independent clauses. I agree that the sentence is a bit wordy. Would it be all right if I played around with it a bit? I just want to make sure my actions aren't perceived as starting an edit war or anything. :)
Ah. On our wiki, Rollback is a separate edit to just undoing something, and is only ever really used for extreme vandalism.
You're absolutely allowed to play around with things. Here, an edit war is really mostly just when two users keep undoing each other's work. In our case, you made a change, and then I made a further change, and then you're making another change. It's not a war because we're not fighting over who is 'correct'.
And, definitely by starting a discussion, no one is going to think this is an edit war :) go nuts!
As suggested by EchoEmpire and your order to stop discussion in thread, I guess I should take the discussion here. If you would be kind enough to paste my original post here, I could explain to you how it's relevant to the post.
I know it's insignificant at this point. I am just very baffled and curious how it's irrelevant. I mean, I get that it could be sensitive; it really depends how people are capable of handling such comments, and I shouldn't expect everyone to. But in terms of relevance, my opinion is that my post was relevant not only to the topic, but also to the answer of another post of a relevant question ("what if it was used for good?") in response to my very first post:
Sry. I tried adding a reason for undoing your edit twice. It didn't take, so I'll just do it here. Jianzhu is only mentioned once in that sentence. And it is only there to show the magnitude of Kyoshi's feat. It's not about Jianzhu at all.
When users have a disagreement, we return the page to how it was before it was changed (known as 'status quo') and discuss it. I saw the message you left on my wall but haven't had a chance to sit down and respond until now.
I removed the addition because while it does talk about a single thing Kyoshi did whilst in the Avatar State, it focuses too much on how it was something that another character had been unable to do. Compare that addition to the sentence already there, which talks about Kyoshi's ability to completely separate a peninsula to form an island. If focuses on her ability to do it, not another character's inability to do it.
Additionally, the point of that paragraph, as made clear by the first sentence, is that Kyoshi is able to "bend all four elements" and "enter the Avatar State at will" [emphasis mine]. Your addition shows neither the ability to bend all four elements, nor the ability to decide to use the Avatar State.
That addition does not fit in that paragraph, and as I said in my edit, would probably fit better on the Avatar page to discuss Avatars having the ability, while in the Avatar State, to access complex or unknown-to-them bending abilities.
While what you added is correct, I don't think that the line is necessary in that paragraph. The point of that paragraph is to show Kyoshi's proficiency with the Avatar State, for which I would only consider necessary to list her greatest and most spectacular feat using it as well as one time she purposefully entered it. I wouldn't consider the first time she used it as a good example because she did not show a great level of power in comparison to the other example (as much as it says that Jianzhu couldn't do it), because it was also a combination of raw strength + the Avatar State, and because it doesn't show her ability to enter the state and she did not do so willingly.
The page is now protected to prevent more edit warring. You opened up a discussion here and then did not respond, instead continuing to edit.
We are talking about the current 'status quo' of the page, which is before you edited it today. If you had edited it to change it back after DC removed the content four days ago, that would have been the status quo, and the section would have remained during the discussion. You did not, and neither did anyone else, and as such a new status quo for the page was created: one without that addition.
Okay, addressing your point. Agreed, it is not the greatest feat she ever did, and I do agree that that entire section can be rephrased. Those 2 different uses of the AS are 32 years apart. Kyoshi mastered control over the Avatar State in literally 3 tries. It took Aang a dozen tries give or take to master the Avatar State, and he was an airbender, so spirituality is literally in his blood. Kyoshi superseded that. I do feel it is an important point to add when trying to describe her growth as a bender. But definitely, you have to add in another couple sentences for the context to make sense.
The fact that Kyoshi achieved mastery in a MUCH shorter time than any other known Avatar (Korra notwithstanding, cuz Aang just sort of gave the keys over to her), is something that is unique to her and her growth and development as a bender. It is not relevant when discussing the mechanics of the AS or the Avatar as a collective.
I see how the fact that she mastered the Avatar State in such a short time (at least in comparision to Aang) could be relevant, and so I understand how a growth from the first time she uses it to the time she has mastered it can be mentioned in that section, but that does not require a full description of the scene that is already described in the History section of the same article. In my opinion, the last edit you made would need to be rewritten so it clearly states how she went from accidentally entering the state to fully master it without getting into much detail of the Tagaka scene.
I would suggest changing it to something like this:
As the Avatar, Kyoshi was able to bend all four elements and enter the Avatar State at will. At the age of 16, she [[Avatar#Momentarily|momentarily]] entered the State for the first time,<ref name="Twitter" /> albeit involuntarily, while fighting Tagaka, having been activated as an instinctive defense mechanism. Later that same year, Kyoshi was able to remain fully aware of her heightened powers while in the Avatar State when she consciously dueled and killed Xu Ping An.<ref name="TRoK27" /> Her most spectacular known feat was using the Avatar State to separate her home peninsula from the Earth Kingdom mainland and push it far out to sea to create Kyoshi Island.
On the same bar where you write a post, there are two buttons at the right: one is called "Text" and the other is called "Poll". You have to click the "Poll" button and it will give you an easy way to create one.
Not Fruipit, but I think I should be able to answer your question. To become an admin, you need to be nominated by another user here, and then the community votes on whether they think you would be a suitable admin. If you are accepted, you are given admin rights. However, as of right now, nominations are currently closed, as we have five admins, which is the maximum. If we were to drop down to four admins, then nominations would be opened.
Not necessarily, AOAS. While we do currently have five admins, it really depends on the level of activity on the wiki as to whether we need more, even if an admin were to leave.
Additionally, admins are only chosen from the current list of Rollback users, as users must have shown a history of both editing and vandalism reversion on the wiki, and already have been entrusted with those additional tools.
This procedure is only true on the Avatar Wiki; another wiki may chose their admins differently.
