  • I'm not sure I agree that this trivia point is a stretch. The tree that Roku sets on fire was part of the vision that he created, rather than something that actually "existed" in the real world, which I think emphasises the symbolical nature of the action and highlights it as being more than just a throwaway. I would also add that the burning bush itself is a common symbol in Christianity rather than being an obscure reference, which again I feel justifies the point as worth noting.

  • I was thinking of starting a blog on my profile about the adult humor woven into the Avatar franchise. Something similar to this page from Pixar (https://pixar.fandom.com/wiki/Adult_Humor). Would such an idea be out of place on this Wiki, or can I go through with it? If it gets people's interest, maybe it could become a page on its own?

    • That edit looks good.

      The part in the bracket seems a bit unnecessary. I might suggest simply removing it, so the sentence would read:

      The children offered their condolences and Katara told them that her mother wanted her and her brother to be safe, sacrificing herself not only so Katara's life would be spared, but also so that the Southern Water Tribe's bending style could survive into the future.

      What do you think?

  • If I understand your question in this edit correctly, the post on the tumblr page states:

    Revered by the Sun Warriors, Ran and Shaw are two Firebending masters who are also ancient dragons. In order to learn Firebending from them, any potential student must present themselves to the dragons. Ran and Shaw examine you and read your heart and soul. If they deem you worthy, they will teach you, if they don't, they will destroy you on the spot.

    The useage of they in the instances I highlighted refer to R&S being the ones that destroy those unworthy, and not the tribe. This to me justifies how it was previously stated in the article.

    • That does indeed provide an answer to my question.

      That said though, I don't think the note needs to be reinstated, as we don't know if they killed those people with their bending, and secondly, a lot of firebenders are known to have killed people. Killing someone does not necessarily prove firebending prowess.

    • I have no problem with that. We already note in the introduction the main point about those deemed unworthy being killed, so I don't think we are losing anything important. Unless you think there is anything removed that should be added to the intro?

  • Hi Lostris. I was wondering what program you use for resizing and optimising images. I have some images from Imbalance Part One that I have cropped from online scans to add to the relevant articles, but they are all quite large (both in pixels and bytes) and I wanted to shrink them before uploading them to the wiki. The standard tool on my Mac doesn't seem to do a very good job.

    • I generally work on image with FastStone Image Viewer. I can't recall the name of the optimizing program at the moment. I used to use PNGGauntlet, which does a good job.

    • Thank you. I will see if I can download them.

    • If this is the same program Lostris recommended me way back, the name is File Optimizer, by Javier Gutiérrez Chamorro.

    • Ah yes, that's the one. Sorry, haven't been on my computer for a while, haven't used my usual programs.

  • Thanks for deleting the Chi-blokering page. I hope I don't make the same mistake of putting a page on the wrong wiki again. Sorry about the inconvenience.

    • Don't worry about that, such things happen :-) If it ever were to happen again, just add the {{delete}} notice on top of the page.

  • Hey Lostris. Hope you are well.

    If you have the time, would you be able to run Botris to rename Earthen Fire Refinery to Earthen Fire refinery. If you don't, I am happy to go through and do it manually.

    • The DC Universe... or your know... torrents for non-USA residents...

      Three episodes every Friday until the 25th, when it will be four episodes, followed by a 5 months break until June, when they'll release the second half of the season.

    • Urgh, hate when they get you all hooked and then leave you hanging for months -_- I might wait till the complete airing of the series so I can binge this.

  • I posted this to the Wiki help desk, but it's not really getting any traction:

    "I'm curious, in this page that defines the dating system, it says that the year 0 AG "began in winter." So, does this mean it's assumed both hemispheres of the Avatar World are somehow in the same season at the same time? Because usually when the north is in winter, the south is in summer, & vice versa."

    Basically, I'm trying to understand how the dates referenced on the Wiki articles work, especially in respect to seasons.

    • The BG/AG dating system directly came from a War Room forum. If I can find the link I will post it.

      Found it: Avatar Wiki:War Room/Dating system

    • True that, but before we had the system of BSC/ASC, which I also think was something we made up (and eventually used by nick.com as well).
