Hiya Onderduiker!

I noticed that you reverted a few of my pages that I had deleted. I had deleted them at the time due to being somewhat unwelcome in the Basin, regarding that most basiners would rather do without my help or assistance in anything. That was not actually a vandalism, but if you feel that the pages were wanted, then do please keep them. It would probably do a lot for my self-esteem if someone finds the pages useful and enjoys them. Thanks for taking the time and effort in saving the work done here ... I greatly appreciate the things you do to keep this wiki going. Skie of Marduke 22:31, 27 July 2011 (UTC)


I think you're giving me too much credit: a few months ago I went through our Wiki just adding category tags to all content pages (including yours) so that it would be clear(er) to which game they belonged, but I don't remember reverting any blanked or deleted pages. As far as I know, your only potentially controversial contributions are your CD_Rom emulation guide and A Guide to Rushing, both of which I've seen linked for as long as I can remember (although I may have moved around those links over the years: just a few days ago I moved the link to the guide to rushing from the Basic to the new Hardcore page).
Thanks for your contributions to our Wiki: you don't always get the same feedback you do from our forums, but judging by the number of views your guides must have been appreciated (certainly, no one has taken enough offence to remove internal links to them, let alone blank or delete the pages themselves).

I was, of course, referring to the Guildwars guide pages... I had never removed the D2 guides. I do think, though, that I should convert my Diablo Clone guide to wiki markup and put it in here... but I basically stopped playing Guildwars a long while ago. I have no idea how to even check how often a page gets viewed in here, lol! Skie of Marduke 09:22, 28 July 2011 (UTC)


Ah, I see: I don't play Guild Wars so I don't visit those forums or Wiki pages (except to add category tags), so I was unaware of any controversy or friction there. However, looking at the revision history of A Guide to Bows and Modifiers and A Guide to Combat in Guild Wars, I notice that you first blanked the pages and then reverted those yourself (my recent edits were simply to add them to the Guild Wars category).
If you decide to add your Diablo Clone guide to our Wiki, you can add a link to it to the World Event and Diablo (World Event) pages (or add the information directly to those pages if you prefer: I won't get around to adding any information myself until late this year or early next year).
There's a bar at the bottom of each page which tells you when it was last modified and how many times it's been accessed/viewed (easy to overlook on long pages unless you scroll right down to the bottom).
I noticed you blanked some pages added by vandals, but this isn't necessary: I regularly check recent changes and as an administrator I can delete those pages entirely and block the users (now that I've categorised all legitimate pages, I can use Special:UncategorizedPages to double-check in case I miss any). Unfortunately the vandalism is most likely the product of bots rather than actual people, but I can deal with it quite quickly and easily as long as I don't let it build up (a minute or two a day is no problem, 15-20 minutes once a week would be tedious).

Just a quick thanks for the formatting help on the D3 pages. I did look at the tables you had set up before, but didn't know how to make that formatting work with the spreadsheet that I was using for the skills info. Much thanks for the formatting and standardizing help! Martini


No problem: although I don't plan to add any content to our Diablo III section, I'm likely to chip in with formatting, navigation and categorisation. Let me know if you ever need any help. Onderduiker 09:35, 9 April 2012 (PDT)

PM waiting
