Adding sirpuddingsirpudding to WikiWalk.

All your Junior Staff are belong to us.

Well, the user changed their name to "Herr_Wolff". Y'know what I just learned tonight? That Adolf Hitler referred to himself as "Herr Wolf".

Nus is right about the mission creep, and I think I see why: somewhere along the way, the team's original purpose of site upkeep (the out-of-universe stuff) became conflated with content upkeep (the in-universe stuff), which I believe should remain under the purview of Rewrite. At most, Custodial should have the right to bug Rewrite about "Hey, have y'all culled Experiment Log X yet?" when they start looking bloated1.

I would support the creation of this team so long as its scope is limited to site upkeep and does not extend to content upkeep. Otherwise meh.

'Coon, your objections have been noted and recognized, and also noting for the record that this position was (to varying degrees) supported by several other peeps in Staff Chat. Further noting that at least one staff member in SSSC expressed at least as strident opposition to the original post with the logs as 'Coon is expressing for the replacement post. Damned if we do, damned if we don't, and in the end someone will be sorely disappointed (at best) and I hate that it has to be that way.

New site member AuroxAurox has been leaving feedback that's on the shorter, vague and unhelpful side:

If your question is about adding to the idea without making it too scary, put it in here:

The format is off and unorganized, but the idea is solid. For the format, use the template provided:

The paragraphs should be combined in areas ( your choice) and should be simpler. The idea of a memetic virus that increases the intelligence of animals to the point of sentience is interesting. Don't give up on this idea. Just do some work :)

Reconstruction would be an interesting route, since not many SCPs promote creation rather than destruction

This is a bit confusing. You seem to have the general idea of this SCP and what it can do, but your problem is passing that idea on to the reader. The explanations of effects are a bit hard to comprehend entirely, and this format of phases causes the reader to have to jump around the page.
This entire file is written like a novel. Try to write it simpler, and as if you are the Foundation writing a report.]

They seem to want to help, but at the moment they're not really positively contributing much. Keep an eye on.

Thanks to Zachary for informing me of this.

The contents of Magnus's PM logs, if there's any question on where my "you're a racist" comes from:

Eta: also same person as this guy.

It was pointed out that the username Dr_HeydrichDr_Heydrich appears to refer to Reinhard Heydrich, a high-raking Nazi in the Third Reich and all around awful guy. Sent this PM:

Hello, your username has been deemed inappropriate due to its apparent allusion to Reinhard Heydrich, a notorious high-ranking member of Hitler's administration described as "the darkest figure within the Nazi elite". We do not allow usernames that allude to Nazis or the Third Reich. Please change your username within 48 hours or you will be removed from the wiki, and will not be allowed to rejoin until your handle is no longer inappropriate. Thank you for you cooperation.


If no compliance, revoke 28 April around 15:30 EDT.

Seconding Nusquam's post nearly in full.

This weekend i will sit down with you and Conwell about whose purview guide and stafflist updates will be.

Re: PROPOSAL - Custodial Team by DexanoteDexanote, 26 Apr 2017 18:14

So, this happened in 19

A user complained about cats doing the "bring a thing up then immediately want to drop it when people disagree" thing (with regards to gamergate/anita sarkeesian in this instance) and it was immediately seconded, thirded, and fourthed by the respective number of users.

The user's issues with "don't be a dick" as a rule then moved to 17

While dealing with this shit and the licensing issues over the past four days have sapped all the energy from my soul for pursuing it further, I would just like to note my grave objections to the removal of logs and my severe disagreement with every reason provided therefor.

Re: Moenennbys by ProcyonLotorProcyonLotor, 26 Apr 2017 17:43

it'd end up as a completely different team anyway.

That would be the idea, yeah, repurposing the infrastructure for a new mission. It'd be really up to Conwell and his team what they want to do, and it's not something we have to worry about today, tomorrow, or next week. Just a thought.

Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!

Re: PROPOSAL - Custodial Team by RogetRoget, 26 Apr 2017 17:08

That would be the ideal in allocating team members, but considering the huge difference between crosslinking and the updating of guides that dozens of new members are exposed to, I am once again uncertain. Would this team chosen for adding content between articles really be suitable for updating guides? Or would we want a newly arranged team of members for a specific and huge part of the site?

I think if the WikiWalk team forces itself to "evolve", it'd end up as a completely different team anyway.

Can we ask Cad/Caduceus/Cadbury to put a block on this individual so they can't make any more accounts?

Re: Disciplinary - Ratlock by ZynZyn, 26 Apr 2017 15:21

Noting that the offending SCP seems to have been self deleted, however I have screens if required.

The SCP Wiki is a spook.

Things like background guide updates have been done by WikiWalk lately, perhaps once the main job is finished doing stuff like wiki guide updates could be moved in their purview in an evolved team. It'd be a shame to throw away all that team infrastructure just because cross-linking is finished at that hypothetical future moment.
