I'm not really too worried about it. I looked at what we have (at least what I could find) and there's nothing without a lot of other junk. Ultimately, its one orb of magic versus another. I don't know that anything would be substantially better than what I've done.

Wiki Staff[edit source]

Sir, im wondering, how to be a wikistaff?? BusterTsurugi2NE1Dissicon ff7 Clo2.png08:15, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

First, you must gather the seven golden seals of the Dark God Hirokaikotsu, and deliver them one by one to the shrines dedicated to the Sun Goddess Jurokamikozu scattered around the world. As you place each seal in it's shrine you will receive a clue to the location of the next seal. When all seven seals are placed they will align their light in the heavens to direct you to your new location, the lost mountain of King Thumia, which appears on no map known to mortal man. Travel to the mountain and climb it, atop which you will find the Sword of WikiStaff +5. This is just step one, next you must slay the Three Dragons of the Stars, located in the depths of the earth in their lairs beneath Canada, Saudi Arabia and Australia. Mix the blood of all three together to create the Elixir of Draconic Wisdom, the warlock who lives atop Mr. Fuji will trade it for the Shield of WikiStaff +5. With these weapons, you can challenge a staff member to single combat in the Pit of Infernal Torment, and the first to knock his opponent off the bridge into the maelstrom below shall be declared their successor in the staff pantheon.

There are a number of things that would help you to become a FF Wiki staff, and then include but are not necessarily limited to the following:
  1. Add a lot of valuable content to the wiki. Find something we don't have and add it.
  2. Become a librarian. Read articles, fix links, categorize lonely files and pages, help with efforts as they arise that require a lot of edits and would be troublesome for one person.
  3. Be known. Post occasionally on the forums. Participate in talk discussions. Be courteous when you disagree. Demonstrate level-headed-ness.
  4. Do not be a flash in the pan. No one is promoted overnight. It will take time and dedication. To this end, don't ever expect to be staff. Enjoy being here for being here.
  5. Be in the right place at the right time. I know this reads as 'be lucky,' the number of admins and moderators do not change often so a lot of times someone has to leave in order for someone else to be promoted. The powers that be will also have to be in the mood to promote people and currently some of our staff has such a hard time getting along with one another that adding more staff just seems like adding more headache.

What about i post SOME GOOD PICTURES to FF:Ring of Fates then i become a moderator or the LEAST position in the staff just only joining me (How many monsters should i edit for it??), BusterTsurugi2NE1Dissicon ff7 Clo2.png13:48, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

TacticAngel TALK 17:43, January 29, 2011 (UTC)
You are already ignoring my suggestion #4 already. That is frustrating. Frankly, you'll have to be useful over a long period of time. You also think that I have the ability to just make you a moderator. Even if that was the case, I wouldn't tell you that I'd make you a moderator if you uploaded 100 good images (or whatever). Words are more important here, anyway. Typically we (staff) vote on these things, and I'd vote against you. Perhaps it is old fashioned and very Republican of me to be more likely to vote for a Cincinnatus rather than someone who aspires to be immediately recognized.

You should probably learn how to punctuate and capitalize things correctly. I try not to be a grammar nazi, but this is a wiki. Writing in proper English is a useful skill here.

Then sorry, but can we create userboxes (in a template page) from other wiki even we are not staffs ??. BusterTsurugi2NE1Dissicon ff7 Clo2.png15:40, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

Random Loudness[edit source]

Now this is serious, a unknown contributor wrote on my talk page, and he made offenses against me, like my edits aren't so good, i gave Cloud Strife a bad name (well i'm not his fan either) and etc. Is there any solutions on this problem?? BusterTsurugi2NE1Dissicon ff7 Clo2.png14:28, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, not to sound harsh, but you're seriously overreacting. One, it's not remotely serious. Two, in all honesty, your edits aren't so good. Three, it's hardly surprising people would think you are a fan, given your username and the multitude of Cloud-related stuff on your userpage. Four, "et cetera" what? Five, it's not a problem, and certainly nothing worth pestering an admin with -- Sorceror Nobody 17:57, February 11, 2011 (UTC)
SN is absolutely correct. Whilst the post in question may lack tact, it is fundamentally not vandalism. As to the other points: yes, your edits are of a generally poor quality (here's an example, and another, and another). Yes, your HTML markup skills are seemingly lacking (observe the history of your sig). It is indeed no surprise that you are assumed to be a fan of Cloud, considering that you have 'Buster' in your name, his picture in your sig, talk bubble and on your userpage, and you have a random quote generator that uses Cloud's lines. I would also like to point out that you have been bothering a couple of users to a frankly inconsiderate degree. From my conversations with other users, it would seem that you have made an overwhelmingly negative impression on many of them. As such, I would suggest that you improve your posting habits on this wiki. Lastly, this really isn't worth bothering TacticAngel with, especially considering your previous 'wikistaff' request failures here. http://i1176.photobucket.com/albums/x333/KujaFFIX/2ea674f6.pngKujaBox.PNG 19:19, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

If you think someone is behaving in a manner that clearly breaches some general understanding of polite etiquette, could you tell me where to find this. We do try to keep things civil around here, even if that civility is enforced with a ban-hammer or lesser negative motivational tool.

Secondly, I would probably have to agree. Your edits are not up to par from what I have seen. You seem to have limited use of capitalization and punctuation. Writing ability is a valuable tool on a wiki. I would never suggest you learn how to speak or conduct yourself publicly from me, though.

I'm not really going to argue it (he is underage), but he said he'd be 13 in seven months. I just find it a little unfair he needs to wait almost a half year extra.

For what it is worth, I do not support a reduction in the length of the block. Besides being underage, a significant proportion of his mainspace edits are of poor quality and have to be reverted. And his ban-skipping as an anon hardly helps the matter. http://i1176.photobucket.com/albums/x333/KujaFFIX/2ea674f6.pngKujaBox.PNG 08:01, March 12, 2011 (UTC)

Well, I will give you two characterizations. They mean about the same thing, one just sounds more ban-fist like.

  2. You may participate in the DNC until such a time as I ban you, again.

Thank you for the heads up. I have something planned which I wanted to coincide with the New Year. I am aware of the forum post though. It seems to be something of an annual tradition. I will weigh in as appropriate.

I imagined by "weigh in" you meant you would write a message in the forum. 13:02, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

What's happening to the DNC[edit source]

Since you have not commented on the current situation occurring in Forum:DNC ownership, I will bring the discussion to you. Although I get the impression you've read most of it, so I'll try to be brief.

Anything held in project space is owned by the community. Therefore all decisions that are made should be based on a consensus of the community. Currently the DNC is being upheld by you and you alone, and you are calling all of the shots.

Discussion has lead to the agreement that the wiki's project arena (whether it is the DNC or a new arena) will have to be managed by a group of people who act based on what the community wants. Obviously this does not fit into the current scheme of things. Therefore an action has to be taken.

It seems to me the action most people want to be taken is that we replace the management of the DNC with a number of users. Now most users don't mind if you were involved in the management, but you wouldn't be able to do as you wish without first having the community agree with you. It would also mean that other users could update the fight if you can't. Although the specific way the arena would be managed hasn't been specified, I imagine that it would be on a "users take it in turns" basis, where another user will step in when one cannot update the fight.

Nothing has been finalised yet, however in the end you will not be solely in-charge of the wiki's arena. Your opinion on how it happens, and your involvement in it will be partially up to you.

If you would like to still control the DNC but host it in your own user area, that is also a possibility however you will first have to convince a number of users. And if you do not respond and make no comment on the current situation (either here or in the linked forum) then your input on what happens in the DNC cannot be taken into account, and it is very likely your involvement with the DNC will be terminated and other users will take over its management.

The wiki just wants what's best for everyone. What's best for the rest of the wiki happens to be a community owned arena. If you do not comment then we cannot possibly do anything for you in this situation and you will be left with nothing. JBed 20:18, January 16, 2012 (UTC)

TacticAngel TALK 05:53, January 18, 2012 (UTC)
Jbed, I don't think anything specifically was asked of me in the forum, certainly nothing of a consensus regarding what the 'problem' is, aside from an update schedule. Notice how few ideas are mentioned by more than one person, and there are numerous contradicting the views of others.

I'm hesitant to get involved on account of the sheer number of unsolicited attacks I have already endured there. The one constant with the DNC is that someone will complain about something, so I take all complaints with a grain of salt. Sometimes things change. Sometimes things remain the same. I would wager one or the other will happen, but these complaints are brought by proxy, and I have a feeling it is largely propagated by the same people as these things generally are.

No issues have been articulated with regard to improvements on the DNC talk page, which is the appropriate place to do so, not in quite some time, and from the looks of it certain people are campaigning for this in a spirit that looks more like a vendetta than an honest critique, as much as they claim not to want to be involved. I would imagine they solicit negative feedback from other channels, like IRC too. Ultimately, if someone or a group of people have an issue with the DNC and they want to articulate it, I will do as I always have and hear them out. If someone wants to lynch me, I will, of course, avoid that mob. Historically, and this is a good point to end on, such changes have only been effected by my own compromise, which the tone would suggest is not possible, or by the edict.

Thank you, Kuja. It doesn't really change much, but for some reason if there is the need for a bureaucrat on an emergency basis--though I can't imagine what that would be--I am certainly frequently available to help.

Thank you, sir.

It is actually pretty wild how prevalent this thing has become. There are a dozen wikis that have ripped it off, including one guy who claimed to have made it, even though its pretty obvious that he didn't.

TacticAngel TALK 23:56, April 18, 2012 (UTC)
The guy's name is "Ajax 013." I came upon it because they credit him on the http://warhammer40kfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Template:TalkText page that I found. I didn't make a big deal about it. He's writing fan fiction for Halo, so if his greatest accomplishment in life is some wiki-plagiarism, I'm not about to take that victory from him. Yes, he could not be bothered to change the name of it.

Also funny.

TacticAngel TALK 00:39, April 19, 2012 (UTC)
I did leave a note on the Halo Fanon under the template saying that the FFWiki was where this came from, and we did't mind if he used it, we just didn't care for him pretending it was his. I don't think its proper that I take all the credit for it. I may have put together the original template, but it was edited a dozen times by a dozen people, each one taking it to the next level (or at least changing it) so I think it is only appropriate that I take credit for being the beginning, but the ultimate authorship of what it is now and what was stolen was community-based.

And if you google Template:TalkText, you can see how much it has proliferated, gone viral you could say.

"It... It looks terrible. Green and black? Really?"

That's not how it is. It's just how it renders when incorrect things are inserted. For example, the colour being used is "{{{line}}}"... it looks like this:

Template & Custom CSS[edit source]

Hello TacticAngel. ^^ I happened across your Template:Talk as I was passing through Halo Nations, and I rather liked it. I tried copying it over to my home wiki; (Nukapedia) and that's when I noticed there was a hefty amount of customized code that was involved. (I am not so familiar with CSS.) So I followed this template back to its original source here, and I figured I'd ask you for your permission and possible help in integrating your work over at my wiki for personal use. Thank you for reading, and I hope to hear back from you soon. Dragon.jpg Skål!

TacticAngel TALK 16:49, June 4, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your interest in our little talk template. I should say that by no means do I claim sole responsibility for this template. The idea was my genesis, I did create the prototype, but most of what is in the current template represents the continuous, hard work of the other members of this wiki. We are happy to let you use the template, we would only ask that you give some attribution to the Final Fantasy Wiki when you post it. A little extra word of mouth never hurt anyone.


I really appreciate it. If I manage to get it to work on Nukapedia, I will remember to give you and your community here the recognition it deserves. Is there any chance you can help me with the implementation process? CSS and me are not so familiar, and I could really use some help. It was also brought to light that the user JBed could help me as well, so I went ahead and sent him/her a message as well.

The template has now been successfully transferred over, and I gave proper credit. Thank you again for allowing me to use it. :)

Final Fantasy Quiz[edit source]

Hey TacticAngel, My name is Bob and I work on the Community Development team at Wikia. We are really impressed with your wiki and wanted to highlight all the great content you have. We thought making a quiz would be a great way to engage editors and attract new people.

This feature uses its own separate namespace, so it won't affect the integrity of the wiki, it's just something fun we would like to do to celebrate your wiki. Please let us know if this is something you'd be interested in, and if you have any suggestions for quiz questions (we'll need the answers too).

I only put this on your page, so as to not come across as spam. If other admins would like to chime in, please feel free! Thanks! Bob (profile)•(talk)•(email) 00:15, June 14, 2012 (UTC)

I'm not an admin so I'm not sure if I can "chime in", but I'm a bit skeptical. Are there any other wikis with this quiz thing installed, so we can see what it's like?C A T U S E 00:20, June 14, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm... seems like a pretty good idea, as long as there isn't too much emphasis on it. We have something like 50 people joining just to vote at the DNC to 1 person joining to do anything else here, and there's not all that much emphasis on the DNC. Gotta have some users editing the mainspace & stuff, y'know.C A T U S E 01:01, June 14, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Tactic. I promise not to go on any mass moving sprees. :P

And did you just ban JBed for 2 hours? What's the story there? C A T U S E 05:15, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

I just got blocked for 2 hours, which is all fine and dandy (and anti-wiki and bad-management-- two hours a helpful editor cannot edit, and you're supposed to give warnings before bans) but I do not even know why.

Were you insulted when I made comments about your ascension to bcrathood? Because I never really stated anything other than the truth. Diablo blindly promoted you because you've been here a long time (Diablo does not know the users here, he's stated it himself. He knows you because you've been here a long time, yet he didn't even know inactive you were).

And aside from it being a blind promotion, there was no community decision. That is what wiki is about. It's not that SysOps and bcrats have all say.

It's not harassment, and it is not that intimidating. If it was done to any other user nothing would happen, but because -1: It's you, and -2: You have the powers, you block me. The thing is that sort of behaviour happens all the time (and not by me), except to other people who do not have powers.

Besides, what you call intimidating I call the truth. Am I not allowed to call out what I consider a bad management decision? Besides, my only comments regarding you were that you would not have been the community's No1 choice for bcrat and that you are not active.

Unless I've got it all wrong and I was harassing someone else somewhere else. JBed 13:15, June 15, 2012 (UTC)
