  • Hi Arcaedia, 

    Many users have posted comments against the deletion proposal for Deus Ex Interesting Quotes/Thoughts

    Personally, I think there's nothing wrong with a collection of quotes. For example, wikiquotes has compilations of quotes for Deus Ex games, such as:

    However, the title "Interesting Quotes/Thoughts" should be revised to avoid subjective descriptions such as "interesting." So I think all that's needed is to revise the premise of the article from "quotes that are interest" to something like "quotes by subject."

    Just wanted to bring this to your attention to see if you have any guidance on this matter or input on my suggestion above.

    • Hi Aeratus,

      Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I'm glad users of the wiki have pointed out that they'd like this article to stay. I've removed the nominated for deletion banner.

      As for what to rename the page, how about something in line with quotes included on character pages like "Deus Ex series notable quotes"? Open for other suggestions though.

    • "Deus Ex series notable quotes" sounds good to me.

  • A recent comment in the Allison Staněk article states that "Stanek" (rather than Staněk) should be the correct name, because the hacek mark for the "e" does not appear in the game. I believe the comment is correct, but I wanted to run this by you just to make sure, because you were the original author of that article.

  • Just to let know, I think I fixed up the code for the navbox now (the erroneous part that kept appearing in edit mode should now be gone). I don't know if I got got all the previous style over so let me know if it doesn't look quite the same and I'll try to see about fixing it.

  • You might have seen the "join Illuminati" spam comments coming from the 197.21x.xxx.xxx IPs (Nigerian). I'd like to suggest blocking this IP range. Blocked IPs will be able to view the wiki but not comment/edit.

    What do you think?

  • I think these two pages (here and here) are duplicates and wasn't sure which one you wanted to keep.

  • Check the comments over on Daria Myska's page. MattH321 has left a rather nasty comment.

    • I edited out the nasty bit.

      Game criticism in general is fine imho, as long as it's not offensive/hate speech.

    • I agree. But also, shouldnt his comment be moved over to the article concerning the mission, instead of Daria's page?

        Loading editor
    • Comments are just that, so as long as they are somehow related to the topic there's not much reason to move them. Also not sure if the OPs get notifications when their comments are moved, so I'd rather leave the comments where they are to avoid confusion.

  • Hi, I'm not sure when Sugarhoney will be back and a user is taking it personal when I asked for Sugarhoney's thoughts on a page the user had created and keeps arguing about it even when I pointed out it's up to you guys. Also, I wanted to run something by you related to the topic but as they're going to attack anything that has to do with that page, is there another way to talk?

  • Hi, I saw a user recently went through and changed all the infoboxes image order to reflect the latest game (not necessarily the latest chronologically, like DeBeers is now his 2029 self rather than the 2052) and I couldn't find a policy regarding this. What's your suggestion?

      Loading editor
    • There isn't an explicit policy on this but I think the practice previously was to put the image from the game the character features most prominently in first. I'm not necessarily against the way the anon editor has arranged the images, as long as other editors are happy with it. What's your opinion?

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I'm ok with the edit as is, and I don't see editing wars breaking out over it (thankfully most leave the infobox images alone).

  • The admin of the Square/Square Enix wiki posted an affiliation request. I'd appreciate if you could join the discussion as I believe you are much more experienced with handling things like that. Thanks!

    • >> but if the logo could be added neatly I would be in favour of it.

      I tried a couple of things... In our current layout, the logo could be placed in the lower right corner, under "Quote":

      UserMockup1

      But on small-width screens where 2-column layout is used this will look a bit less neat - with empty space in the adjacent column. However, this is the far bottom of the page, so the empty space might be not a big deal.

      UserMockup2

      Thoughts?

    • Sorry for taking so long to get back to this. What you've come up with looks ok to me, and I'd be happy to add it to the main page if other editors agree and the Square Enix wiki are still interested.

  • Hi, when you get a chance, can you look into this user's changes? I'm not overly familiar with the lore regarding the articles so I can't tell if it's accurate or them throwing in their own speculation.

    • I think the anon is correct, although there is slightly conflicting information about this. One email says:

      ">I'd like to investigate the possibility of resurrecting
      >the bovine manipulation project (MJID-9803HU8932), with
      >an eye towards recreating the "Gray" lifeform -- while
      >the project was deemed a failure at the time, it _was_
      >successful as a propaganda tactic in diverting attention
      >away from actual Dreamland research."

      which I would say confirms they're not really aliens and are meant as more of a diversion. Although it might be slightly speculative to say the idea is to discredit any whistle-blowers rather than just confuse the public. Do you think the current phrasing should be reworded at all? Thanks for asking!

        Loading editor
    • Ok, thanks for that. I'd probably reword it just to remove the whistle-blower part then, as that email shows it was a diversion, but can't say for certain if it was also meant to discredit any potential whistle blowers.

    • How you've rephrased it sounds good. Thanks for that :)
