  • I just saw your recent edit and do you not use the oxford comma? I'm pretty sure the comma can be fine either way. Is it a preferred method of the wiki to not use it?

    • Ended up undoing it, it works either way. I didn't have a chance to look at it entirely thouroughly and only was able to check the coding before editing it.

  • For this page, link for "Terms and Conditions" can no longer be found.

    I found a replacement from signature of a forum user, Meandrina: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1F-nswuD-OpCmnGZMVaj43_0swx4NYb-U_ZZ31RNMUFw/edit?usp=sharing

    This is a serious matter, I'm unsure of the change, and I don't feel eligible to do such an edit. Kindly ask if you can do the change?

  • Zed! Before you went off on the live chat I was about to send you my project. It's at the bottom of my wall so tell me when you see it so I can remove it (it's a sneak peek after all)

      It's been a good while since I was a Riachu, friend. I don't see a need to return to that time just yet.

      Maybe when I'm feeling extra nostaglic, but not right now.

  • I shouldn't write anything too long, knowing my grammar couldn't afford that XD Please bear with me. My comment was blocked to prevent hijacking in blog post, so I decided to post it here. It's about appreciation. 

    Appreciation as a necessity

    I have heard about behaviourism learning theory by B.F. Skinner in education field. Theorists believe that changes in behaviour occur when respondant to certain stimuli receives desirable or unwanted outcome. They did an experiment: A doorbell rang, no response (secretion of saliva) was found in a dog. By manipulating the stimuli - everytime the doorbell rang, the dog was given food, they found - after a few tries, even by hearing only doorbell, secretion of saliva was found. Accompany the doorbell with food, the dog showed increasing in volume of saliva secretion. But when the food was no longer given to the dog, the volume of saliva secretion decreased when it heard the doorbell. It continued to the extent where the dog no longer react to the doorbell. Applying the theory in a classroom, if a teacher gives no recognition or appreciation, student's motivation may burnout. Even though the given recognition may not look like one (medal, certificate, trophy, etc.), just a cue on any student, follow up by a simple praise "I like how you phrase it", provides enough extrinsic motivation for them to talk for the second time. So, I believe that appreciation or anything that is deemed as "reward", is the drive source of all effort. Personally, I can't do things without appreciation. Why wasting time doing something which people don't bother looking at. But you're different. You keep up your work, even feeling underappreciated, you're beyond human.

    Looking for appreciation isn't vainity, but necessity. Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs, on the fourth stage, it reads: Esteem Needs (prestige & feeling of accomplishment). In this theory, when the prior stages were fulfilled, human tend to look for higher need. The first 3 stages include: Physiology, Safety & Belongingness (relationship), which I'm guessing you pretty much have them all. For you to look for the fourth stage of need is something instinctive, you shouldn't be afraid of it. A dog reacts positively towards the doorbell because it reminds of the fulfillment of survival needs. Physically healthy students in a safe classroom, with lots of friend around, feel motivated to engage in the lesson just because a simple compliment, as sense of achieving is exactly what they need in that circumstance. Can I safely guess, you're just like one of the student there? Then, you don't need to suppress your need for wanting appreciation. You're human.

    Appreciation throughout Life

    Erik Erikson had a theory that says, psychosocial development of human goes through 8 stages. It happens throughout one's life, certain developmental stage occurs on certain age level. Unable to complete the prior impose difficulty to the latter. 

    1) Trust vs Distrust: An infant decides whether to trust the world, and who to trust. Typically parents, or those who provide basic needs, comfort & affection, come out as someone reliable, gain trust from these innocents. Toddler exposed in distrust surrounding, without fulfilling first 3 stages of need in Abraham maslow, may later live a neglected life. Hopefully, everyone had this stage passed.

    2) Autonomy vs Doubt: Children starts to explore surrounding and their capability by instinct. If children are constant stopped by authority (parents or teachers) for trying things, they may have the habit to cast self-doubt upon themselves. If they are encouraged or rewarded for their "exploration", they feel okay to be themselves, and start to learn to handle their routine.

    3) Initiative vs Guilt: If children's effort result desirable outcome, it strengthens their initiative. Otherwise, they would less likely to take initiative if they feel guilty over their failure. But simple appreciation or encouragement may override guilt of failure as children recognize parents or elders as their authority.

    4) Industry vs Inferiority: A primary kid learns to be competitive, productive & try to come out as an individual of achieving. They may lose motivation upon things if they feel they're not as good as their peers. Appreciation in this stage is absolutely important to tell kids that they can do things to overcome their sense of incompetence.     

    5) Identity vs Role Confusion: A teenage questions "What have I got?"& "What am I going to do with it?" If I tell someone that they are a good at reviewing role, then they might establish their identity as a good role reviewer here, doing every review more serious than ever, constantly seek for improvement. See, a simple act of appreciation, as long it is genuine, we wouldn't know how much it impacts an individual. And, if you ever receive praise, please take it by heart. It is your potential to refine which you yourself may not notice. You may find yourself in it.

    6) Intimacy vs Isolation: Can I love? Am I loved? An appreciation can tell you whether you're blended in or not. When Addfire told me that I did well for my first role review, and that moment, I realised I am already a part of this wiki. As time goes on, people no longer react to my reviews or comment. I start feeling isolated. I questioned, am I still a part of this place? But thank God. I found people who appreciate me. That's why I still come back once in a while, cause I miss the feeling I was once loved. Sometimes, I want a lot of people to appreciate me, I want that sense of belonging. But sometimes, I'm thankful there's only a few who appreciate, cause I can clearly who are they, and what they say.

    7) Generativity vs Stagnation: Late adulthood, people question themselves whether they had done enough. If they were appreciated enough, they feel they had worked for a better community. They may acquire the sense to guide the future generation. However, those who dissatified with recognition they had, they develop sense of stagnation. They are unmotivated to help the community to move forward.

    8) Integrity vs Despair: Elder who see their life unproductive or being contemplate with their achievement. Am I doing right this whole time? If no, they may see all hopelessness in the world. Appreciate effort and sacrifice of these elders. It is important to change their life perspective.

    I hope I could answer what you're looking for. May sounds a little bit random, but my gut feeling told me you're facing certain existential questions. Maybe I can help a little with my limited scientific knowledge. Hope it helps to change your perspective, or maybe understand life a little bit more? Hopefully I did something. If it doesn't, at least I did show you that I care. 

    Finally, I wanna say, I cherish you, and appreciate everything you've done. People come and go, that include me, but you're here to stay, right until this moment, still doing things. What's more plausible than that?

    You may not always need to find yourself in our eyes. You know yourself than us. Please appreciate yourself, be kind to yourself. Cause you deserve better. Please, be well. Stay healthy.

    • Oosh. Thank you so much for that, that simply just warms my heart.

      Seeing the scientific views behind things in my case definitely does help. Always puts out that new perspective of things.

      From everything I've seen from you, from all of your own posts, you yourself go above and beyond. You pull out old research about topics everywhere. You dig up old files and make detailed reports on roles themselves, their functions, and how they are played (BG as an example).

      In my view, you are definitely underappreciated yourself on your own ways, which kind of sucks. But hey, although I may not post a response to show it each time, I'll use this one to show that I do appreciate what you do each time you come up...and I especially appreciate you coming out here on my own "territory" and writing up something that made my day (well, night, midnight rn but who needs sleep lol XD hahahahahahahahaha)



      You're a fabulous person who is doing so much stuff here out of the ordinary, which is always something to look forward to. Uniqueness defines us all in this day and age, and you've definitely shown it. Keep doing what you keep doing. I'm always looking forward to it.

    • Yeeeeeeeeeet I did something!! :DDD I'm happy enough that you're fine right now. I was both happy and worried reading your blog. I feel the burnout, I understand & I hate how it was bottled up all the way there. Thanks goodness, you voiced it out. I was there, I don't like it, I don't want anyone to be there. I must do something. And I did a thing. I thought you're like someone tough who rarely share his feelings, so I don't really expect a reply though XD Surprised that you did. You made my day! Most importantly, you're good. 

      No worries about me. I was there, but people are there for me too. I'm all fine :D Right now, I'm still learning to give without taking, contribute without expecting. Can't really say I did better when I can't keep up my effort. But I'll try my best.

      THANK YOU SO MUCH for recognizing my senseless baseless otherworldly idea XD I'll make sure I hone it nicely. Sometimes my execution couldn't keep it up. There were times I ended up burdening someone else irl. I can understand why my work wasn't liked. I feel like people were already nice to me not to criticize my work, cause I see only flaw, a lot of them, in my presentation. I don't wanna take credit for effort, even though sometimes I think I deserve some encouragement at least. Sooo... I'm not really down to face underappreciation, but I'm down seeing my mistakes. Again, I'll try my best, and thanks for reading my lousy job XD

  • Hi Zed,

    I've been assigned to be the new Wiki Manager for this wiki, replacing Jr Mime who left the Fandom Wiki Manager team two weeks ago. If you have any questions or problems related to the wiki, feel free to contact me on my message wall.

  • I know this unorthodox, but I'd like to request admin just for the purposes of hosting the Wiki Mafia game. I know in the past it's been likely that a player might accidentally post after the night ended or while they're dead, or an anon might post something on the thread to troll, so I'd just like the ability to remove and edit other comments, basically. If not, it's cool, I just think it's better and more efficient for me to have the power instead of asking someone else to do it. After the game's over, you can take it away.

    I promise I won't abuse the power, if that's any concern, but I hope it isn't.

    • Having the ability to simply delete comments/move threads is a Discussion Moderator. Admin I cannot grant, only Bureaucrats can, but I however can grant Discussion Mod.

      Anyway, there’s the whole discussion about “we don’t need any more staff” but this is an interesting instance where its a “staff rental” if you only want to have it just to manage your WM game and nothing outside of it. I myself would be fine with just that, however, asking someone higher up to take care of something is what the current staff are here for. Hawaiian is easily contactable and readily active here as with myself, we recently got Rubik on the team as a new Administrator, Dongarinos of all people also recently came back from her 2 year hiatus, and they’re all contactable. The first two are active to take care of all that stuff as well.

      Trolling anons aren’t much of a huge problem, there’s one hanging around now but they only target one person and we’re quick to dispose of em.

      In my eyes you’d be the last type of person who’d abuse power, I don’t think that’s ever been a concern for anyone here XD

      We usually look at giving staff as a full time thing. A “staff rental” hasn’t been a talk since ever really.

      I’ll see some other input, I’m up for giving Discussion Mod to ya to manage this, or if not we could go through ourselves and remove anything that’s not supposed to be there, but know that type of stuff isn’t a huge concern or is prevalent.

      We also have Ghosty as an admin but he’s a lazy boi, so I dunno if he’ll do anything.

    • Glad to be the first to rent a staff position XD

      I also forgot to mention that I might be closing threads during the night phases, just to make sure no one posts.

      I know it's not much of a concern, I guess I just want to be an extra eye as the host of the game if I feel anything is out of place, instead of making you guys deal with it. Same with closing the thread.

      I'll go ask Haw to check it out, thanks!
