Your alias

A friendly suggestion: I'd pick something other than "The Mentor". Someone who has been running BBSes and generally hanging out in online communities (e.g. me) since before someone using such an alias was born (i.e. you) might get rubbed slightly the wrong way. --Mikk 20:29, 10 June 2006 (EDT)

How so? And I've been working on wikis longer than most of the people here have, if not all - not to brag, but I daresay I know quite a bit about working with mediawiki and about the wikispirit - that is why I called myself this. Not to mention I'm never around because of other wiki projects and when I *do* bother to leave a post here, I have a *very* good reason. Thus I like to be listened to. Thus; the name.

Perhaps, but, in effect, you are masking your identity and seemingly trying to sound 'better' than others. What's wrong with using your already well-known name, or a neutral sounding alternative. You do make it sound like we should be honoured with your presence, which, to be frank, isn't welcome :) -- Kirkburn 17:20, 12 June 2006 (EDT)
What isn't welcome? My presence? Don't start boi (-: And, name changed. I can take a joke (-; The Smentor 17:22, 12 June 2006 (EDT)
Heh, nice! =) I know how much you did for this site, and I respect that (= -- Kirkburn 17:36, 12 June 2006 (EDT)
heh, thanks - I'm mainly only here as a human dictionary - CSS, HTML, MediaWiki's idiosyncrasies and general weirdness and maze-like code, Wikitex/Wikitext/WikiML, how to apply the Wiki Spirit, Wiki conventions, and Wikicarrots. Wait, scratch the last one. No carrots were harmed in the making of this post. Hey! And no stealing my smilies! (-; The Smentor 17:38, 12 June 2006 (EDT)


What the hell is up with you, man? Can we at least discuss what the current problem is? It's not good timing right now since we have a vandal loose, again ... -- Kirkburn 13:11, 28 August 2006 (EDT)

Nothing the hell is up with me. I'm trying to help with the vandal BTW, but not much I can do if I'm not a mentor. 15 thousand pages and one admin? No fucking breaucrats? I tsould have 10 or so. Damn administration here sucks fucking balls. The Smentor 13:22, 28 August 2006 (EDT)
Calm down, man. It's not the end of the world :/ I understand the stub.gif change now (which you didn't explain before), but what of the other stuff? -- Kirkburn 14:11, 28 August 2006 (EDT)
Save your breath, that isn't the real one. --Ragestorm 14:27, 28 August 2006 (EDT)
You never know... --Fandyllic 3:02 PM PDT 28 Aug 2006
You must be the real one. No imposter could fake your Mac-driven humor. --Ragestorm 16:03, 28 August 2006 (EDT)
It is sort of funny, but look closely at these changes: the real Silver?, the fake Silver
SilverSide worked hard, but he is still kinda aggro. --Fandyllic 4:20 PM PDT 28 Aug 2006
So that was the real SilverSide? I've seen him get mad, but never use language. Well, this does teach us a valuable lesson, I suppose: much as we appreciate you, you can't do it all yourself. --Ragestorm 17:33, 28 August 2006 (EDT)
I thought it was a bit odd as well, but I think it mostly just came from the frustration of this edits being messed with. Unfortunate coincidence really :( -- Kirkburn 18:58, 28 August 2006 (EDT)
...This is me. Who esle. Thanks whoever got rid of the vandal's addition to my... note. I'm always around. I'm removing the icons I submitted for various reasons; and the stub icon was simply a violation, no question about it. This is likely my last posting for a while. The Smentor 04:54, 30 August 2006 (EDT)
To explain a bit more, I don't usually cuss - I'm in college now, it's sort of fuckin with me, so forgive my slips - anyway, the main reason I came back so angry was I simply came back to check for new messages mostly; but it just brought back memories of why I left in the first place... between my attempts to work with the site owner and being completely unable to communicate with him; and the fact that at the time I was quite incensed with the fact that Fandyllic, whom I saw as a 'noob' or an 'interloper' who had no idea what he was doing, was promoted over my head - between all that leading up to my final leave of absence; stacked with the stress here with college starting and work completely swamping me... I simply blew. Anyway, even though I've calmed down, my statements still stand, and I am still removing all my intellectual property submissions from the site systematically. Thanks for your time. The Smentor 05:20, 30 August 2006 (EDT)
Your intellectual property is no longer yours to remove. You have submitted it under the GNU Free Documentation License v1.2 [1] which means that WoWWiki has every right to keep redistributing your copyrighted material. Granted, making edits is what a wiki is about, but I'll say this as a precaution: if you start tearing large holes in the wiki just because something can be said to be your work, or a derivative of your work, you will be declared a vandal and banned.
However, seeing as how you are claiming to be a wiki expert of sorts, I cannot but assume that you already know this as fact, which leads me to wonder what reason you have for saying this in the first place?   --Mikk (T) 05:49, 30 August 2006 (EDT) & -- Kirkburn (talk) 05:51, 30 August 2006 (EDT)
My textual intellectual property is now released under the GNU, yes - the visual work is not released in any such way, including the layout and design of the community portal. The point is moot; the icons (which were my biggest problem) are gone, the community portal is merely a point of fact. Rest is up to you. And yes, I 'claim to be a wiki expert of sorts' - but I don't remember you from anywhere; you certainly weren't around when I was here or you wouldn't be talking (typing?) in that tone (font?) of voice (text?). You seem relatively new, gasp, oh - and you're an admin too! Wow. I'm starting to love the administration infrastructure here more and more. I can't go on about this, I have a life to attend to and I have achived my goals here, so good day to you, and good luck with this site. The Smentor 05:58, 30 August 2006 (EDT)
This is not SilverSide. This is Peerless. Two different people. SilverSide made a few initial edits here, then stopped editing and I used her account. Thus, for all intents and purposes, this is the SilverSide that you know and love. *grin* The Smentor 06:01, 30 August 2006 (EDT)
