Hi Lilboops, that page was just a question someone wrote, creating a wiki page instead of posting to the forums. There's no original text to revert to. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, I'll delete the page now.
For future reference, reverting an article is easy to do if you do come across mistakes/vandalism/etc. of a wiki article. Just click on the EDIT button and scroll down to the history tab (a record of all edits made to an article) and click undo on the edit in question to restore the previous edit.
I'm not trying to be Deb downer - but I'm really tired of the thread showing up for SN folks. I thought I saw some thread saying that they would have a few days to move their posts or something but it's still happening. Whatever can be done I'm sure most of us will appreciate the move. Thanks again.
Is it possible for you to send out reminders that not everyone speaks the same language OR asks a perfect question? Why are these well established wika members allowed to talk so poorly to newer members? I have 3 coworkers who joined the game. However, they wont join wika because of the attitudes here. I recently had my feelings hurt and told in a RUDE PUBLIC "suggestion" how i should ask questions. How humiliating!! I asked a question. I explained my situation. He was so freaking rude and its PUBLIC! He 100% did NOT need to say that to me. We arent game friends... ive never talked to him before this thread. Im allowed to be treated so rudely?? Why am i not allowed to ask or answer the way i feel will explain what happened???
Hi TXCLOVER, I'm sorry to hear that you felt humiliated in the forums and that your coworkers think it is unwelcoming and unfriendly, that is the total opposite of what it should be.
If you're referring to the Eagle Eye thread, I just read through that and while DystopianMe's last post in that thread can come across as
harsh and rude, he may have just have been trying to help.
As for asking questions, there is no right or wrong way to ask a question...just ask. So please don't feel that you can't.
Emotions can run high on online message boards such as these where everyone has an opinion on everything. Which often times lead to misunderstandings since we all have different ways of writing, some more straightforward than others. And the way we read comments can differ, as what sounds light and playful to some can come across as rude and demanding to others. So please try to assume good faith and best intentions whenever possible.
There is already a Forum Policies/FAQ located on the upper right side of the Forums page that everyone should read and abide by when using the Forums. I will leave a reminder on his wall about the policy.
chamy is it possible to use hashtags or ampersats to trigger a message show up for a recipient? i.e. if I want you to see a post in a thread and am not on your wall could I add @meohmy or #meohmy and you would get a notification up above to look there?
I noticed someone posted some hints on the Garden location - for "Leprechaun Coin Locations." I would remove the hints myself, but am not positive - weren't they part of the St. Patrick's Day update earlier this year? Similar to finding black pearls?
The IP was from Malaysia. The majority of Malaysians are muslims and in Islam dogs are considered unclean and being called a dog is a real bad insult. Put the dog in a sentence which is complicated to understand for non-natives with not so good knowledge of English and there is no humor just an insult. And btw, calling people who don't know English very well drunk is also insulting.
At this point, I don't care about Malaysian or Muslim customs because I'm sick of this crap. I did not call anyone a Dog! What I said was that Mytona listens to me and what I have to say about as much as a Dog would listen to the flees on its butt which means that Mytona doesn't listen to me because what I have to say holds no value for them.
How dare you try to use social norms and religion as a means to justify your or anyone else's racial intolerance! Whether or not I insulted that person they had no right to use racial slurs to attack me. And yes I do stand by what I said they did sound drunk because their belligerent racial slur laced unprovoked attacks were bearly legible.
Since you feel that attacking people by race is acceptable if an insult is perceived instead of asking that person what exactly was being stated or implied by the statement made (which I did and was attacked for that as well) then you will continue to have troubles in online communities and life.
That poster's nasty temperament is not welcome so I'm happy not to have to speak to them again and since you side with that poster Okapi3, you can say away from me as well because I refuse to walk on glass or tiptoe around my words in order to appease you as your attitude implies that you feel you are so much better than me in some way that I should. I made this post to thank a Moderator for doing her job not to continue to be attacked for something that I did not do and get told when others think it's okay to attack me by race. And since this is not a Malaysian or Muslim forum your accusations are rude and inappropriate plus this conversation did not include you until you decided to include yourself. If you find that you are insulted by any of what I have to say you only have yourself to blame.
Many people here in this forum and around the world own dogs and love them very much and even go as far as to consider them to be part of their families. Furthermore here in the United States when pet owners registers their Dogs with a veternarian or for petigree or breeding purposes the dog is legally given the surname of the pet owner so if you or anyone else has a problem being mentioned in the same sentence a Dog is mentioned in then your fighting will continue to be a problem for you and get you banned often.
Before this goes any further Ruby, Okapi only sought to provide a context to explain the extent of insult your words might have caused the Fandom user due to their cultural differences and why it caused such a visceral response. We can all agree that words can be misunderstood and hurt feelings can result from careless words that may not come off as playful to others. To accuse Okapi of condoning the profanity is unfair.
The forum is part of a global community with users from all over the world and all walks of life. Different languages and different cultures can sometimes result in misunderstandings but we shouldn't say those cultures and languages don't belong in this forum. Try to assume good faith and realize that if the person felt insulted rightly or wrongly, they will respond in kind.
True but I don't want to be attacked like that and did not come here for excuses from another or for justification. I only wanted to say thank you to you and ended up feeling as if people are trying to force another culture's customs on me and got reprimanded for stating how I perceived my attacker's behavior. I just want this to end too but I do not want to literally be turned into a dog to kick for anyone who has a bad day or because I'm not a member of their religion or community.
It would have been more polite if this person had:
A. Read the post in question because I did not call anyone a dog.
B. Not have taken sides by telling me that voicing my own feeling about the way someone else spewed their own feelings on me was wrong. I did not call that person a drunk. I said that person sounded as though they are drunk.
C. Asked to talk to me about this without interrupting a conversation that was not started with them and that they were not asked to participate in.
I would just like to be left alone about it TBH and not have to worry about being my normal joyful and playful self. And since my feelings in the whole situation were not once considered by Okapi or my attacker I want them both to leave me alone and not follow me around this forum infusing this whole awful situation into every conversation I have. I'm a person too and have a right to have my own feelings about things that are said to me. I'm not here to be Malaysian or Muslim. I'm here to enjoy spending time with people who happen to like playing the same game that I like. I don't think asking Okapi to leave me alone is an unfair request especially since it's obvious that our cultural difference may cause future misunderstandings.
Please imagine you are learning Hungarian, you find a Hungarian forum about a topic you like and you want to take part in conversations. You post something far from being perfect Hungarian to the best of your ability and someone else writes: She sounds as though she is drunk.
That's not what happened regarding the situation you are so bound and determine to referee. I responded that I didn't understand their response and then I took a guess at what was trying to be said and then I gave the poster a suggestion of how to let the company know directly what they wanted. And then I tried to make light of the fact that the company doesn't listen to me so telling me will not get the poster what they wanted.
I did that because I have seen other posts where people seemed to think MyTona is directly connected to this site. I'm tired of explaining myself. I shouldn't have to explain myself so much just to have a conversation with someone. It is making me uncomfortable having a conversation with you. I do not want to talk to you and am stating this as clearly as possible in order to avoid more confusion.
Stop trying to turn this around to make me feel that this is all my fault because I have no compassion for people that speak english as a second language. I already took as much responsibility for the situation as I'm going to in my opening post to MeohMy. A post you should have already read and understood since you are so determined to participate in this conversation. That is why you are being asked to leave me alone. Plus there are proxies and other ways to make an IP address look as if it is coming in from someplace it is not so this could all be a moot point because someone was simply looking to pick a fight with me. I have stated several times on this site that I have gotten the chance to know, work with and play games with people from all over the world. That is the 1st time anyone has so viciously attacked me (except for when someone else on this site chose to attack in a similar way for a similar reason) You would know that if you had taken a moment to get to know me. The 2nd reason you are being asked to leave me alone.
Again you did not read the original post which makes it insulting that you should feel the need to keep trying to go back and forth with me about this. That is another reason you are being asked to leave me alone. I have also asked that you leave me alone and you are choosing not to do so, which is a very rude thing to do and extremely demeaning. This is a 4th reason you are being asked to leave me alone. I am asking again. Please leave me alone. In front of a forum admin. I am a person and have rights just like you and the poster and I am clearly stating I don't want either of you to talk to me. Since that poster's rights matter so much to you, my rights should matter too and clearly, they don't. And now you have a 5th reason I do not wish to talk to you. LeaveMeAlone.
