Re: Question,

As Cadden mentioned, stabilizers seem to be the analog to maneuvering thrusters.

Then again, we're dealing with inertia dampeners and artificial gravity generators, so it's not a big surprise that maneuvering thrusters might be overlooked. :)

Re: Reboot: Wikia

Your words resound with logic. Though, I wasn't advocating a mail campaign to alert users. More like once a decision is made, give it X weeks before the mass pruning begins. In any case, I've backed-up my pages, so I'm set. :) I'm curious, though, what is the logic to determine if a page needs to be...

Re: Reboot: Wikia

I'm well aware of that. I don't want to have to restore something to retrieve it and then delete it again.

Or else, perhaps give a 2 weeks notice or 4 weeks or whatever before pruning of articles. That'll give people time to retrieve anything.

Re: Reboot: Wikia

I know I'm not an active member of the community anymore, but you're not going to prune (aka delete) any of the existing articles, right? If so, perhaps giving a grace period to allow users to backup their articles might be a nice gesture. I for one would like to backup the articles I've written in ...

Hey guys. I realize now that my statement was easily read as offensive. I didn't mean it that way, but when I read it now, I can see why it'd be taken that way. I definitely deserved the rebukes that I received. I offer my apologies for the tasteless post.

Non-OCD Balsa: Would it be prudent to add a line that says these rules are specific to the forum only, and do not supersede the wiki rules?

Re: I think the time has come...

Well, the title of the new rules thread includes wiki in the title, so that needs to be removed. Additionally, there are a host of rule threads in the MBT forum that need to be archived because they are obsolete with the removal of FCs et al.

Re: I think the time has come...

Well the wiki rules are different from the forum rules because they govern things like image citation, copyright, plagiarism, etc. if you guys want to get rid of that, that's fine, but I think they are more important because they address actual RL issues. Also, it does appear you guys invalidated th...

Um. Did you get rid of the wiki rules as well? Including image citation and the like? Was that intended?

Edit: never mind, I misread the threads. Looks like the wiki rule set is still there. I blame it on reading the forum on s phone.
