  • Hello.

    While I don't mind the edit itself, I would ask the same as you would ask me for your own ship pages and please consult me before editing the page like you did. :)

    I'm perfectly fine in the way of my of edits like spelling, grammar, categories etc. That's all fine. Just larger edits I'd like to be made aware of before it happens.

    Thanks, have a good day.

    • Alright well, I didn't see all of this until just now and my point still stands. I don't need to approach you for permission to edit these articles. Once more, you don't own the navy. And based on prior conversations you've approached me on in game? You were intending to give yourself Grand Admiral until I'd told you Jes Tereth held it. While I don't mind what you RP, I do mind if you're going to lie about your intentions.

      As for the pages at large, they're not yours. I don't know what's not getting through to you but let me repeat this.

      Lore pages, even if they're boats/have to do with the navy, are not yours and no one needs to address you personally when editing them. You are not an administrative consultant on the topic and cannot give yourself that sort of authority over anything.

      Skate around it as much as you want, it's very blatantly obvious you have an image for the navy in your mind that not everyone may conform to. Like it or not you do not have the authority nor permission to prevent or request for people to consult you before they make an edit to an article that was not expressly made within your own fanon. The Grand Alliance Navy is a lore organization. The carrier-class is a lore ship. These are not your express creations or your exclusive pages. If you go ahead and make your own classes of ships or fanon that isn't literally just Blizzard's stuff, then you can request people not edit as you wish (aside from categorical/grammatical).

      I'm stating this now for everyone who may have read this/Ranets may have approached in the past, you do not need to go to Ranets for personal approval on naval articles relating to the Grand Alliance Navy, the Navy of any kingdom, ship classes or anything having to do with the sphere of nautical fanon if it is not Ranets' own unique creations. That means edits to pages such as Carrier-class and Grand Alliance Navy are fine. It does not matter if you created the page before someone else, if it relates to a lore ship/organization, you don't suddenly gain control over it because you just happened to make the page first. If the article was not in lore and was actually created by your own imagination and creativity, you have express control over it. Lore organizations/creations you do not. This is coming from someone who is a senior member of the administrative body of the wiki.

    • Alright, alright. I was attempting to maintain that the reason I was asking for permission was so that I could -Manage- the pages. I never explicitly said I would deny people the right to edit the page. I only asked that I was made aware of what was going on. That was what I was intending. If I worded that otherwise or made it out to look like something else, then sorry. My goal was simply to allow people to be aware that I would like to know what goes on for my pages.

      As for the Grand Alliance Navy, there is actually ALOT in there that is fanon. Besides the history, I'd say a good 60% (Perhaps more.) is fanon that I've weaved to try to meld it with what we know as lore. The divisions, Admiralty, Fleet Air Arm, parts of the navies, etc. etc. That is fanon I've created. There is no direct mention of the term "Fleet Air Arm". There is no direct term to "Air Force', so I created a Fleet Air Arm with attachments to the Navy so that we had -something-.

      You go onto the GAN  page and see what is fanon and what is lore, Berenal, I assure you will see what I mean.

      As I said before, I'm simply just going to leave this argument. my point was out of hand, and I should have contacted you about this personnally. Whatever you, Everen's or anyone else's opnions of my leaving is, I don't care. 

      Thanks, and have a good day because I know mine's a bit tarnished now.

      -Rane.

  • Hey! I would just like to inquire about that. I have no issue with someone else being a FC as well, so long as the Fleet or Navy they hold the post in is independant from the GAN (As Ranets is the FC of the GAN, and you can't have two of the same Navy, if you follow).

    So I'm basically just wanting to know wether or not the Headlands Armada is independant from the Grand Alliance Navy. If it is indepenant, all good, mate! i won't be an issue. If not, I'd like to discuss about how we can balance things out?

  • Hey! So you might have seen I've been fixing up some of the medal pages I've made and I was just curious, reading the Liam's Cross page. If the Liam's Cross was added following the SoO, does that make it apart of the Grand Alliance Military Order of Wear, or is it still purely the Gilnean Military, however crumbeled it is?

    If it is in the Alliance, where does it fit in the OoW?

    • It's a purely Gilnean Military medal. I'm of the mind that Gilneas still keeps a significant level of separation from the GA in terms of things like this; given they were never ultra Alliance in any iteration of it. While they're def more into the GA than the AoL, I still think they'd keep that whole Gilnean pride centralism when it comes to their military.

  • No worries at all, I'll take absolutely everything down ASAP and revert whatever I can to its state before I touched it. I'm fairly new to the dynamics of the Wiki and wasn't exactly aware that this was your private/guild project. I (Obviously incorrectly and rather ignorantly) presumed that it was some kind of public work which anybody could contribute to in the areas where there was nothing - that's nobody's fault but my own, and I apologise profusely for making that assumption and taking the liberties I did. Had I known otherwise, I wouldn't have made any edits. 

    I very brazenly didn't read the OOC section on the page before I made the edits...the onus for that is completely on me, and I take full responsibility - but it was a blunder made out of poor foresight, not malicious intent. Please believe me when I say that even with that presumption, I never sought to take credit for, reappropriate or hijack anything that you or your fellows wrote, I merely wished to contribute to it in some way.

    With that said, allow me to commend you for an excellent assortments of writings. It makes for quality reading, and even if I won't be contributing to it I'll certainly be watching it.

    • I've gone ahead and read what you'd contributed we'd probably have no issue finding a place in it (though I'd kindly request it be -after- Aerin Greymane, we've actually got some stuff written out for her!). The OOC disclaimer was posted after as prior people had come to me directly and I'd thought it wasn't necessary, though I'll have it there in case of the future issues.

      I have no issues with you contributing so long as you simply just run them by myself or aeliren first so we can get something that'll keep the narrative flowing properly. If you'd like, hit me up in game or on the wall further and we can possibly discuss retaining the information you'd created with some minor modifications to make it so it'll be added in properly. As I'd statedin the OOC part, we're open to suggestions/new content at any time; we just would like to be informed and allowed to ensure said content will flow in properly. (Ex: someone putting something that states Gilneas was destroyed at some point or whatever is a pretty substantial detail).

      As stated I'd love to get more folks involved and have what you wrote out included in some form, so please do get back to me soon.

    • Thanks for being so understanding, and I'm very grateful that you'd still allow me to contribute after this 'mishap'.

      I've got a whole bunch of relatively minor and inconsequential ideas for the timeline, but I suppose at its core my most 'significant' addition centred around the documentation of a Warring Kingdoms-period Gilnean tyrant (As well as the documentation of his immediate predecessor/s and/or successor/s) whose reign - while greatly reinforcing the power of the kingdom in the political arena - was characterized by bloody, expansionist conflicts with the other northern realms, further religious turmoil between the throne and the Church as well as harsh, paranoid treament of the nobility - vaguely reminiscent of the reign of Tristan II and in a generic way analogous to certain real-life monarchs of history such as Ivan the Terrible or Henry VIII of England.

      I have the time to completely rehaul everything I've previously written to suit the parameters of your choice, so just tell me what you want specifically altered and I'll start from scratch. This time, before I edit the page, I'll make sure to run my final proposal through you first.

    • I'll be putting up Aerin's stuff soon, so probably after her daughter. I've got nothing for her just yet so it would be ideal, though I'd request we not make the blow to Gilneas so extreme that they lose holdings in Silverpine/they're crippled. The Era of Strife is supposed to end badly but for other reasons.

    • I'm in contact with Moorwhelp and he's just asked me if he can restore this page:

      http://moon-guard.wikia.com/wiki/Jerome_VI

      I said that he could, but I'm really not confident with the usage of your material on that page so just let me know here specifically what you'd like rescinded/added and I'll get to it ASAP. 

      And to the rest, that's all fine, I'll get in contact with you again when you put up Aerin's history.

  • Salutations and greetings!

    I was originally going to write to you concerning your page about "The Wickers" and the various pages associated with it, though it seems that I can metaphorically 'kill two birds with one stone', as it seems that you also head 'The Blades of Greymane'.

    But where are my manners? Chances are you haven't heard much of my current character, Bizenghast, but you may have heard of my other character Lillianvex. Regardless, Bizenghast is the leader of a similar group to 'The Wickers' known as The Order of the Harvest, though we are largely a little unorganised at the moment as it's just myself and a few friends at the moment.

    I was wondering if there was any possibility of The Blades and/or The Wickers interacting at any point, considering their similar goals and Gilnean kinship?

    At any rate, please don't hesitate to ask me any questions, either through Wikkia, mail or whispers. :)

    Thank you ever so much for your time,

    -Raising Kane

    • If you want we can talk in game, I'd be more than willing to talk here though. I'm not finished uploading but the Wickers are not the kind of organization that would probably be happy to interact with others, even if the Order of the Harvest is keeping to the Old Ways. They're mostly just hostile to everyone who isn't a part of their group at this point and are actually unaffiliated with Gilneas as a kingdom. I've seen your guild advert, actually, and the Blades/Duchy would probably be more than happy to interact with another Gilneas group. If you've got any questions then by all means toss me a whisper in game (Can find me on Berenal, Aeydan, Grayblade and a few others. Just ask around my guild/send me a letter if you want)

  • We went through this with Caspius' page. Character pages should not be changed by others, with the sole exception of adding categories and updating succession boxes. I left Madelynne's version of the event on the Battle of Edenfield page, but I wil not allow my character pages to be edited by others. I will be speaking with Maxen in game to address this. Please refrain from making any further changes to my character pages without my permission. Thank you.

      This is off-topic, but because paint.net was mentioned above, and I was curious, I googled the page.  My AVG immediately warned me of a threat on paint.net, so please use caution.

      I've been using it since it came out several years ago and I've never had issues with it. At the time, it was an alternative to paying an obscene fortune for the latest version of Adobe Photoshop. It's certainly not as versatile as Photoshop, but it's less of a system resource hog and it works well for doing basic editing.

    • Huh.  Well, my AVG caught two infections and removed them upon visiting the page.  Just letting you know.

  • Could you help out with organising the subcategories under pirates for adding a "The Hellbringers" page there? We are currently attempting to add ourselves into the wikia and work on lots of lore but are having trouble with that.
