    • Why hello there sir. Why are you bragging about having more badges than moi? It isn't much of a bragging right to me since you are only #4. Now if you were #1 I woukd consider it a bragging right. You have been more active than me sir, so this is why you have more badges. Please refrain from the bragging sir. Its very childlike. XD

    • You have two months' time on me, sir, so activity, sir, is no excuse, sir, so have a nice day, sir, and why are we calling each other "sir," sir?

    • I don't know sir. Graduating has put a mature and British like way of talking in my mind sir. I am sure that is the case sir. I can't help it sir.

    • Well, sir, since "Mod Articles" was closed, sir (and Sitb was right in doing so—imagine his notifications and clutter), I thought it wise, sir, to continue it here . . . sir.

      • Seven times, sir? I transgressed, sir, naught but seven, sir; shall I say, sir, how many times, sir, you didn't say "sir," sir? Or shall we admit, sir, that we are both human (or human's best friend (and I don't mean "gun")), sir, and make mistakes . . . sir?
      • If I seemed, sir, to be a bit unresponsive, sir, I apologise, sir: when playing Subnautica, sir, I get worse internet speed . . . sir.

    • I've been thinking, sir: if I ever, sir, get to first, sir, in achievements, sir; then it'll be, sir, because I'm more active, sir, then Sitb, sir; so, sir, you could still, sir, say it's because, sir, I'm more active . . . sir.

      Sir, in your second reply, sir, you said you didn't know, sir; but then you said, sir, you were sure of it, sir; which is a contradiction . . . sir.

    • Sir I am starting to get tired of this sir thing sir. Can we stop sir?

    • Yes, but there's a catch—here are three things I request that you do:

      • Transfer the articles you categorized as "renewable" to having the renewable tag in the infobox.
      • Remove shulker shells and totems of undying from "renewable" as shulkers and evokers do not respawn, respectively.
      • Hope that no one else beats you to it because I know you just love to do this stuff yourself without any delegation at all whatsoever (et cetera).

    • "I'm a Higher Badge Rank than You"

      Does it matter? You seem to be editing a lot, some being about unimportant things, kind of like badgefarming.

    • "I'm a Higher Badge Rank than You"

      Does it matter?

      Did you see where I said I was hoping for creative response—or the rest of this thread?

      You seem to be editing a lot

      I'm going to ignore the strong tone of "overachievement-is-bad" and merely say I often find myself with free time.

      some being about unimportant things

      Only as important as Oxford commas.

      kind of like badgefarming.

      I "do not make edits to simply earn badges/achievements on the wiki" (policy)—for one, they're too constructive to count. That's all the evidence I can think of.

      Yes, but that's not the point.

      I just found the amount of editing suspicious as there seems to be a lot.

      Oxford commas are part of proper English grammar. Are you saying that grammar isn't important while editing articles?

    • NinjaDogDB took it the way I had hoped, as my experiences with him have taught me he probably would.

      Understandable: there's people like you, who have multiple wikis to attend to, including ones to administrate, along with a lot of life to live; and there's people like me, who have only one wiki and a lot of free time (well, less now that I've gotten back into Subnautica, but yeah).

      No, only Oxford commas (and other bits and pieces unrelated to this discussion), and only as much as simplified links, or point-of-view, or whatever else you were referring to.

      Oxford commas are important. They are part of proper English.

    • Okay, Oxford commas are important; I fold on that part.

      Would condensing code, fixing POV, or whatever else you were referring to be unimportant?

      Those are good and constructive edits.

    • So what would "some being about unimportant things" refer to?

    • as in types of dashes and other stuff.

        Loading editor
    • Dashes are part of English grammar.

        Loading editor
    • Is there any reliable source you have other than the punctuation guide, which isn't always correct?

        Loading editor
    • If you question the dashes, "unimportant" is the wrong word.

      Sometimes Grammarly.com; what parts of ThePunctuationGuide do you disagree with with strong evidence (to counteract the sources it says it uses)?

        Loading editor
    • I use grammarly, and I didn't really see anything about dashes.

        Loading editor
    • Neither do I; I searched up "dashes" on google and found this Grammarly article. I think that's case-closed on dashes, the only case open being proper punctuation sourcing.

      Okay then. I'm on it even though I have noticed that yall have gotten into a little arguement while I was gone.

    • If "yall" means Phillydan25 and I, I don't why we have so many debates. It always seems to come from a misunderstanding—misunderstanding the rollback tool, misunderstanding the point of this whole thread, misunderstanding the point of stubs, etc.

      Oops. I forgot that y'all is informal in grammar. Sorry about using the improper way to signify both you and Phillydan.

      That's because you have been giving somewhat arrogant responses to the messages. I do not have a misunderstanding, and please stop acting like you're very experienced with Fandom.

      The fact that you and SLSCool always seem to argue. Due to how your previous reply was worded, I think you will get into yet another arguement with SLScool.

    • NinjaDogDB, you know me so well. However, when I asked about "y'all," I was wondering if it meant something else that'd sprung up on the wiki; partially because I cannot remember what else had sprung up, and partially because you were mentioning an argument on this very thread, I find my questioning rhetorical.

      To Phillydan25: I had a misunderstanding about the rollback tool, which was solved when I found an answer that was 0% seeming like it was based on some sort of technicality(the answer in question was Fandom's definition); you had a misunderstanding about stubs, which Sitb solved (how this wiki uses a different standard than many wikis); and based on how I was having a humorous conversation with NinjaDogDB, which you took in a serious matter, there is also a misunderstanding about the original thread. As to seeming experienced with Fandom: the only example of this I can find is not so much about Fandom as it is about this particular wiki (stubs); mind bringing up some examples? As to arrogance: as a human who will naturally be biased, I cannot find examples leaning in your favor; mind bringing up some examples?

    • Look: this thread is getting long, and NinjaDogDB probably doesn't want to put up with it. Neither do I, actually, in the sense that I don't want to go through the effort of discussing; besides, it's been a day since I replied, and you haven't replied since, so my proposition is to forget about this discussion. I'm purposefully keeping it vague because I don't know how much we ought to close the case on, or how, if anything; what's your response?

        Loading editor
    • Alright.

      I never had a misunderstanding on stubs. I knew what a stub was.

      There have been some times I felt like you have been acting very experienced with Fandom, like in our rollback and stub discussion,

        Loading editor
    • What does "alright" refer to? I'm assuming not my latest comment, because that would make you a hypocrit for the two other paragraphs you wrote.

      In Stub Template, you did not know how this wiki uses stubs, but you knew how almost every other wiki out there uses it— the latter being something you know a lot more about than I do.

      In the stub discussion: Sitb said in this part:
      I don't think that [mini-modding] applies to this situation. We are having a discussion for the purpose of clarification. Your comment appeared to be an observation of this wiki's policy (which also happened to be correct), along with your opinion of what you believe would be the appropriate way to use stubs. Considering how the start of this discussion questioned an edit you made, it is only logical that you tried to explain why you made such a decision. You also immediately clarified/apologized for any mis-interpretation of your response, which should be the end of it.
      That's my defense; I will add, however, that I was not acting so much experienced with Fandom as I was acting experienced with this wiki. Looking back at Banners, though: unlike the stub discussion, I was rather arrogant, and I'll apologize. Part of the arrogance came from thinking your explanations were correct out of technicality; for example, when you said the rollback page never says the rollback tool can't be used for anything else, I was thinking along the lines of, "well, no one ever said I can't use my pocketknife to conquer the earth, so . . ." I do not remember much of what happened in the live chat except that you explained some things, I explained some things, and then I searched up what Fandom says about the rollback tool: I discovered the rollback tool has a universal use across all of Fandom, unlike stubs, and it said something slightly different than what this wiki's rollback page says, but directly agreed with you. I had found something that cannot possibly seem technically binding, so I was then certain you were right.
      In conclusion to that paragraph (though I still expect you to read all of it): I was neither arrogant nor experienced with stubs, and I was not acting experienced with rollbacks except with what this wiki said, but I was arrogant with it.

    • Looking at your responses, I kind of agree. Let's just stop this discussion and not argue.

      Also, about the "alright" part - that was in response to " I cannot find examples leaning in your favor; mind bringing up some examples?"
