Crashsnake[edit]

I have been considering starting a thread about Crashsnake at WP:AN. What do you think about this? He has many warnings on his talk page, has been blocked a few times, and still never replies to any warnings and often keeps going right on what he was doing. I am uncomfortable with blocking him myself, but maybe some greater community input is needed. BOZ (talk) 20:44, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Something needs to be done about Crashsnake's behavior. He can make good contributions, but his lack of edit summary and some bad edits makes it hard to trust any of his edits. I had previously given up on getting him to improve his behavior because warnings and blocks didn't do anything. My edits on the 17th were because I recently learned about the WP:AN as a way to improve situations like this, and I thought if I gave him one last chance on the 17th I could then escalate it to the Administrators' board for some help. Start a thread and post a link here. I will give you support. Spidey104 13:40, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
Will do. It will take a bit of time and research (nothing of the level of WP:RFC/U, but still) so I will probably have to do that tomorrow evening. BOZ (talk) 16:35, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
I know you haven't edited since I started it, but in case you haven't seen it already, there is Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#Crashsnake. BOZ (talk) 16:37, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
I'm surprised to see that he actually responded! Maybe this will actually work to get him to fix his behavior. I have already posted a comment and will monitor the discussion as it continues. Thank you for starting the discussion and thank you for providing me with the link. Spidey104 19:19, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Template:EP series of templates[edit]

I'm moving this discussion here as it is more appropriate than on that talk page. I'm quite sure that you had never seen it before as it is a fairly new parameter. I just wanted to make sure that you were aware of it moving forward (and there will likely be more new options added over time). You can keep up on the current options by visiting {{subst:EP}} and viewing the doc. Jackmcbarn, Mr. Stradivarius, Anomie, Redrose64 and myself have been putting a lot of work and time into streamlining the whole edit request system. There's even a new script in alpha development that you "may" want to check out if you plan on answering a lot of {{Edit semi-protected}} request and you can check out the details on User:Jackmcbarn/editProtectedHelper. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 04:10, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you. Those will be useful to have. Spidey104 00:31, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Stormlight Archive[edit]

Hey, I saw that you removed my recent edit about the pre-publication text. I thought it useful to delete those; after all, the information is available on the Way of Kings and Words of Radiance pages; if we will add all the pre-publication info to the series page it will be a huge info-dump. What I can do is this: adding a section that refers to each of the pre-publication info at the respective pages. What do you think? --J.A.R. Huygebaert (talk) 12:53, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

I still stand by what I said in my edit summary: "That section should be shortened/summarized in this article, but not completely removed." That information should be in great detail in the articles for the individual books, but it should still be present in the article about the whole series -- albeit in a more condensed manner.

I've been away for a little while, but it looks like you kept a good eye on The Stormlight Archive while I was away. Thank you for your edits on that. Spidey104 14:02, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
These days I only edit pages about Sanderson, so I'm glad your happy about it. I'm going to edit Words of Radiance after I finished the book (I'm reading it very slowly because I will have to wait two years before the next book comes out), so if your planning on doing some edits, remember that I will do the same. I will include the number of chapters and interludes in the introduction, like with The Way of Kings, the plot section will be created and probably information about bestselling etc too. --J.A.R. Huygebaert (talk) 16:21, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Those all sounds like perfect additions.
I'm actually waiting to read Words of Radiance, because I'm tight on money right now, I already own other books I want to read, there will be two years until the next book, and the price will come down before the next book arrives. So I will actually be avoiding the Words of Radiance article to keep from spoiling the story for myself. I might also have to start avoiding The Stormlight Archive article so I don't see any spoilers Spidey104 18:55, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, don't spoil anything for yourself - you wil regret it. I'm at page 340 and its crazy how much happens in this book. I'm seriously questioning how Sanderson is going to fill the rest of the books.--J.A.R. Huygebaert (talk) 19:43, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
