Welcome to this wiki! Dwarf Fortress rapidly becomes more complicated, and we're always glad to have new writers.
Since we prefer that you try to follow our wiki's standards, we've made a list of basic guidelines. This is a template.

  • To let us know who you are, please sign your posts on discussion pages by typing --~~~~ after your posts. This can also be inserted with the Button sig756222.png button if JavaScript is enabled.
  • Never put a question mark in the title of a page. Question marks mess things up, and your page will be moved to a different name.
  • When making comments on a talk page, use one more colon before each line in your comment than was used in the comment you reply to. Put exactly one empty line between comments by different users but do not use blank lines inside of a comment. If your comment has no indents, use <br> after each line.
  • Avoid making many small edits to a page. Instead, try to make one large edit. This makes the history of the page a lot easier to read.
  • Don't edit the user page of another user. If you want to tell them something, add the comment to their talk page.
  • If you put a comment at the bottom of a talk page with section headers, you've probably put it in a section. Don't put things in the wrong sections. If necessary, create a section.
  • Most importantly, read and follow the rules. Really. Read them.

A Taste of Your Own Medicine?[edit]

Wikis are about collaborative editing, not enacting eye for an eye or tooth for a tooth revenge based on edits you think were not constructive. That merely degrades the quality of the wiki. I have plenty of reason to believe Squirrelloid acted in good faith when removing those quotes; however, you - by your own admission - have made it clear that you were not acting in good faith. Behave, and settle differences in opinion sensibly like a responsible adult. --Briess 16:52, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

Sure, I'm with you on this. Yet, there's a nuance between collaborative editing and imposing is view of a subject. In this case, Squirrelloid is imposing is own humor, removing quote on false pretense ( I repeat, nowhere is it written than quote must be funny ). By doing so, it's clearly impossible to re-add them back, since no one really care and you can't get a consensus on this. I'm acting in good faith too, for the wiki, as I find his removal offensive, and I'm not the only one, as you can see. There's NO reason to keep the quote page small, there's no reason to remove quote who are not necessarily funny, since quote are quote, not funny little catch phrase.
That's why I removed quote added by him, to show him how easily it is to destroy something. Anyone can come by, delete a lot of them, and never came back, based on is own opinion. Now as per wiki rule, he has to call for opinion so he can add it back. Funny stuff to have a taste of his own medicine, Yet he prefer to come by and cry to you. If I had not admitted it, or deleted them with a fake account, it would have been the same. --Karl 17:17, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
"That's why I removed quote added by him, to show him how easily it is to destroy something." I don't care by what means you think removal of content for example is justifiable by; but UNLESS you believe that you are improving the page, and that is your primary goal (not education of what edits can do to a wiki), by removing content, don't remove content. --Briess 17:20, 5 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm not stupid. I know the spammers are bots. What's wrong with making fun of them? --LaVacaMorada 14:33, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Actually, this particular spammer is unfortunately not a bot. It's an actual human, probably working in a sweatshop. Hence, why none of my anti-spam measures do jack squat against this moron. --Briess 19:14, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
