Hi, I'm from Haruhi Wiki. One of the admins of this wiki, TheGreatEye, has requested to affiliate with us in the past, and we have accepted his request. But strangely he didn't add our logo to the main page of this Wiki. So can we affiliate with your site? I'm also a big fan of Index and Railgun, I hope you would accept our request. Thanks!
I had been meaning to repley to his post, but I have been preoccupied with real life for more then the past week. I just sent him reply and feel the obligation to respond to you, and I think we need to think how we can improve people's awareness of the rule and what to do when the happens in the future, as I siad to Drastical somone always violates this and I want to avoid another issue in the future.
Okay... Okay, Okay, Okay, During those tough times of being blocked, i seemed to have been mad about you blocking me out of this place here. Perhaps a little too mad, that i have abused the power of kind speech and have spoken filth of you and what you did. Above all that, I just wanna say sorry about doing so, and that i will try not to do it again. As i have promised, this place will once again be friendly and happy, and hopefully lose such strict ways that made people like me suffer. So, atop of that, i didnt mean to realy be that way, it is just that... that.. It was too harsh Okay? I was just trying to help, i thought i was gonna do something good, to add a new page that people can stop by and edit, okay? So please, i didnt really notice that reminder anywhere, so no more harsh blocks, you know now that you have done that, i now feel weak in confidence and feel as though i have to ask admins to allow me to edit any page, due to me not knowing if i will get bloked again. And also, why make it such a long block? Sorry, okay, i wasnt meant to hurt anyone, including you or anything. I am sorry.
I now just wanna get along with everybody, forget what has happened in the past, and look forward to a better brighter future for all wiki users, for me and for you. Help others insteas of hurt. Expand this site instead of lower its great size.
And if i really have done something worng, im sorry, and if i do something woring in the future, please dont do what you did then.
one thing that i wanna know is when the volume is translated so i can recreate the dianoid page. Just remind me (this goes toward everyone). Oh and if i dont have enough info, sorry, hopefully some other user wil add more to it. So thats all i gotta say, so overall sorry for EVERYTHING. Hope this mesage helped, and so goodbye, and good luck.
First of all sorry for taking so long to reply I have be busy for over the past week and I wanted the time to have the proper response to you. First of all their was their are no hard feelings, you did nothing wrong it was just a misunderstanding. The rule about not posting new information until a novel is done translating is there to avoid any unnecessary confusion and reedit's, like in the latest book the the main antagonist was throwing out misinformation left and right, that is why we wait until the novel is fully translated. As for the original time that I set for your ban was the usual time I set for people on their first offence, if you have any ideas on how to make more people aware of this rule or what I do when somone else brakes this rule in the future, because we have somone who dose so every new release of the novel.
I personally made that announcement on the Community Messages section without thinking of outright blocking anyone who breaks that rule. And I don't think Drastical has created the article on the Dianoid in bad faith, so I'm requesting to have his block period shortened from two weeks to one week or something. (For me, I don't really want to block anyone, unless it involves destructive practices like making shitstorms in article comments or vandalism. We're still a small community, so I want to make sure we're at least welcoming for new faces.)
js06 is already in the middle of translating Chapter 1, which seems to be set in the Dianoid, so there should be enough details in what has been translated right now. I'll also ask Drastical to make sure he has enough data and has everything properly cited the next time he tries to create an article about the Dianoid.
I just wanted to check something to make certain. When you added the poll for NT11, for some reason other sections of the main page were reverted to an earlier version - was this accidental or deliberate?
The sections which have been affected on the main page are the Franchise Overview section, the Poll Results section and the inter-wiki links (though Fujimaru-kun fixed the links shortly after it happened).
I've put the affected sections back how they were - is that OK?
Two other things I thought I should mention:
The NT11 edit restriction notice is still up on Community Messages. Perhaps it would be an idea to swap it out with a note about the poll being open for the NT11 Arc Name, so that people are alerted to it?
You probably noticed but there have been a couple of image deletions by Wiki Staff in the last week or so. The images that were targeted seem to have been images related to exposure. There are images of a similar nature present elsewhere on the wiki so there might well be more deletions to come.
I was apologising for leaving the summary incomplete for quite some time and likely causing inconvenience (I started work on it, stopped part-way due to burn-out/gloom-button-press, didn't resume it (I probably won't be able to do so given circumstances at the moment), and didn't leave a note or anything for those that might have been interested).
That's OK, these things happen. Things are a bit busy on this end as well, what with the request for help with the Heavy Object Wiki and all the other stuff. Herald was also thinking about customizing the achievements and has opened a thread for discussing ideas. The lucky edit image has been changed, though the new image (from Cloverfield) is a little bit off-putting.
