  • Hello Bobikz

    I am pleased to inform you that you have been selected as the Editor of the Month for November 2019. To reflect this honour, your username will be given a cyan shade for the upcoming month which will be mostly visible in the Wiki Activity, Community and page histories. Moreover, your profile masthead will permanently have the tag "Featured Editor - November 2019" added to it.

    Your name and portrait have been added to the Main Page. In case you are not satisfied with the current portrait, please inform me with your choice from this list so that I can make the necessary changes.

    Keep up the good work!

    Sincerely
    Pafton (wall | edits)

    • Hello Pafton,

      Sorry for answering so late( 

      This is a real honour for me although I think I did very little for The Wiki in November.

      The portrait is nice, thank you!

      Sincerely,

      Bobikz (talk)

  • Hi

    Since you're involved with the quest pages, I'd like to tell you that certain questgiver categories have undergone name changes in order to be more consistent with their "actual" names:

    • Myciena is now Princess Myciena
    • Grivus is now General Grivus
    • Terry is now Admiral Terry Hunt
    • Greva is now Greva Darn

    The necessary updates have been made in all the quests pages to reflect the changes.

    Sincerely
    Pafton (wall | edits)

    • Thanks for this information! From now on I'll use the new category names.

  • Hi Bobikz

    Almost about a year ago, we had nominated your name for the post of CM. Unfortunately due to RL reasons, you weren't able to get the post at that time. Currently, our wiki is severely understaffed. Of course, we have active admins, but they are restricted in their specific domains and aren't able to create a connect with the people. Therefore, considering that you're decently active, I would like to offer you the CM's post once again. Do hear me out before making a decision.

    Last year, once of your reasons for rejecting the post was that your English wasn't up to the mark. I would like to tell you that English is not a problem. Most of the pages have a generic structure and are easily editable. Of course, if you are stuck anywhere, we are readily willing to help you. You also said that you were quite busy at that time. I hope that within the span of the year your work might have reached manageable levels. Also, it is imperative that you should know that activity is not an issue at all. I went through your previous edits and the frequency in which they are made is more than sufficient for this post. Moreover, in case you do get busy in the future, you can always inform us. We are an accommodating lot and do our best to cover up any admin/CM's absence.

    Upon looking at your profile, I came to know that you're a Russian. It would be interesting to note that 2 members of our team have been Russians. I certainly hope that you would be the third.

    Please consider this proposal thoughtfully. Our wiki is going through difficult times without adequate management, and it is in such scenarios that dedicated contributors like you can alleviate our problems.

    Eagerly awaiting a reply.

    • Hi Pafton,

      I'm really sorry but I can't. I'm still busy IRL.

      That's true I've done quite many edits during ths year but the difference between such a type of contribution and content moderation is freedom and the absence of responsibility. First is a hobby, second is a duty. I make edits when I have a free evening and want to edit, a CM makes edits when he/she have to. If I haven't a free minute during a fortnight or a month, I can disappear from here without warning. If I was a CM, in such a situation, I would have to inform the team and to find who can do my work instead of me. That is how my real life looks like, and I'm psychologically not ready to turn my free-time activity into a duty. Moreover, my edits are mostly short and simple to make and take a little time. I think CM's work is much more complicated even though it includes a lot of copying.

      I realise the Wiki faces hard times now but if I said yes, I would get exhausted by CM's work and I fear that one day I wouldn't cope with and would just disappear without informing the other. I think the last situation would be worse than me saying no from the beginning.

      Sorry,

      Bobikz (talk)

  • Hello Bobikz,

    I'd like to notify you that I've put forward your name for the post of Content Moderator. If the other admins agree and you're willing then you'll be made one.

    I'll let you know when a decision has been made, and if appointed will also inform you of your new rights and provide a link to access the team's chat server.

    • Hi Bobikz,

      Lorenard sure did some great work on the quests, also on the recurring ones.

      Any quest info you can provide is appreciated, it doens't have to be as detailed as Lorenard organized it. At the moment I'm taking the 'by force' path, so I also don't have info about the 'peaceful' ones, but I'm sure someone will fill it in eventually.

      If you can help on the side quests that would be great. At the moment I'm still in BA, taking it slowly, getting the most from the recurring quests, so it won't be soon before I can provide EMA / HMA info. I'll keep you informed, in the mean time thanks again for all your edits :)

    • Oh, sorry, i didn't know that you're still in BA. When you reach EMA and if you are willing to do something with EMA side quests and need any help, please contact me.

      If the order doesn't have to be perfect, I've tried to organise LMA quests on the 'Side Quests' page. There are a lot of 'perhaps' and 'probably' now:) I'm going to do the same with CA quests when I reach the end of CA.  

      Thanks for your help and your advice!

  • Hi Bobikz,

    Thank you for your edits on several quest pages and adding them to categories.

    If I may give you a tip: instead of adding incomplete quests to the category, you can put the {{Incomplete Quest}} template at the top of the page.

    This will place an 'Incomplete Quest' banner on top of the page and will automatically add it to the proper category. Whenever an article is completed you can remove this template.

    You can find an example on the Annoy Grivus page.

    • Hi Mr.Quib,

      Thanks for your advice. It  wiil be very useful because I'm adding LMA side quest pages little by little, and it usually takes several days to find out a completion text and complete the page.
