I've created two new templates which are fairly simple: {{PolicyRemind}} and {{PolicyWarn}}. Both templates require Subst: and both require a value to be passed. I may create a template later for PolicyLastWarn for the 3rd offence, but what I've created so far is enough for now. Provide your thoughts here (and please don't just delete it as I spent most of today working on it and I'm not going to be that happy if all my time and effort is just wasted :/). --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 22:34, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

It'll have been a waste of time even if they aren't deleted. I find it interesting how hard you're trying to act like an admin. It's like you're trying to tell us something.
Also why do you boast so much of your doings here. Firstly you were boasting about your 1080p images including it in your rationales. Then you created a userbox for yourself (You know noone here uploads 1080p images). And now you are showcasing these templates. There are people who created templates but never show-off like you.

Wow really? Creating two templates for other people's use makes me trying to act like an admin? You really have no idea. I don't boast about my doings so why don't you just get lost because you seriously have no idea what on earth you are on about. The userbox fyi is NOT JUST FOR THOSE WHO UPLOAD IN 1080P! Learn to read the information page about it, because it quite clearly states it has 3 values for 480p, 720p and 1080p. My recommendation to you is to get out of this thread because you have really no idea what on earth your on about. All of what you have said is untrue and very rude. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 08:31, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

Nice work. I think they will be useful. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 08:37, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Jacce! Glad to hear a vote of confidence from the admins! :D --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 08:38, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

They will surely be useful. -- to me) 14:41, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

Yup. The intention behind the templates is to make it easier on people not to have to type out 50k variations of the same rule violation and just provides a default. :) --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 14:44, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

Nonetheless, you should act and respond in more polite and civilized manner Speysider. No need for rudeness even if he does not understand your doings. --Vecanoi (talk) 06:11, July 30, 2012 (UTC)

He was basically being intimidating as though he knew everything so I was rude. It follows the simple logic of "If your rude to others, expect rudeness back". As you can see, I am being civil to everyone but I do not act civil to anon's who think they know everything about my work on this wiki. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 08:34, July 30, 2012 (UTC)

Anons or not they deserve respect. Even the great ones here were once small, what would have happened if someone scared them off like you yelled at this poor fellow? We are maybe loosing some good future editors. "So the last will be first, and the first will be last", says the Holy Bible. --Vecanoi (talk) 10:25, July 30, 2012 (UTC)

You can discuss this with me on my talkpage, but I'll say that this anon deliberately came to this topic to be intimidating and insulting, I don't think the Wiki wants such a user here. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 10:27, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
I recommend finding a dictionary and looking up the word intimidate. Giving an opinion in a forum topic that asks for opinions is not what intimidate means. An example of intimidation would be making a template that threatens to block people from editing. A better example of intimidation would be making two templates that threaten to block people from editing. -- (talk) 18:23, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
You were being intimidating as well as harassing me. You clearly do not like me for some reason, even though an admin stated that this would be useful. Do me a favour and stay out of my way. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 18:26, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
So what, we're going to have templates for everything now? I'll just stick with the old way of reminding a user the policies here and that doesn't involve a template. The IPs was just freely expressing how he feels and quite frankly there's nothing wrong with that. -White Flash-(Talk)- 18:42, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
Who said anything about having a template for everything. I created the templates for those who want to use them. Nobody is putting a gun to your head and saying you must use the templates. They are just a more simpler way of reminding users about a policy violation. And if you actually look at the first IP comment, you can quite clearly see it was harassment so yes there is something wrong with it. Why do I get the feeling that everytime I try to improve the wiki, I get abuse and all sorts thrown at me ? --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 18:45, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
@Speysider: Well I keep seeing new templates for almost about anything; vandals, fanon and now this, since when we become this lazy just to send a user a single message? The first comment made by the IP was not harassment you probably assumed it was. And stop saying "I try to help but get abused" self-pity is annoying at best.
@Vacanoi: Everyone loses their cool once awhile, though you have a good point. -White Flash-(Talk)- 19:35, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
It's not self-pity, it's quite true. I've done a deed to help out users and all I get is insults and harassing comments saying that I'm a suckup, trying to act like an admin and all that crap that I am now sick and tired of hearing. Every single day I get it and it's really starting to make me become more ruder on the wiki. If people would just lay off me instead of jumping down my necks, maybe I wouldn't be like this =.=
And yes, the message was harassment, because Jacce blocked that IP for a day as a result. If that's not intimidation or harassment, then I have no idea what is. =.= --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 19:44, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
Freedom of expression? -White Flash-(Talk)- 19:46, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
