==Archiving==
 
I've archived years of talk. Hopefully, you won't mind that I've done so.
 
 
Hunter61, who are you on the MTGS Forums? We're trying to arrange so that you can access (more) subfora. Thanks! --[[User:Magic Mage|<b>M</b>agic <b>M</b>age]] ([[User_talk:Magic_Mage|talk]]) 01:47, 1 September 2012 (EDT)
 
 
:My reply to your reply that you left on my talk page is on [[User talk:Magic Mage|my talk page]]. Apologies for any inconvenience. I'll try to have SOPs and stuff in place, hopefully with input from colleagues. --[[User:Magic Mage|<font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">agic</font> <font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">age</font>]] ([[User_talk:Magic_Mage|<font color="red">talk!</font>]]) 07:36, 4 September 2012 (EDT)

How good is it when a sysop is welcoming bots left and right? That's what I get for trying to bite more than I can chew... thanks for the catch though - [[User:Votan|votan]] ([[User talk:Votan|talk]]) 11:03, 4 September 2012 (EDT)

==RE: Category names==
 
Please understand that, whilst convenient, it is worth noting, in category names, things that are real world and things that are of ''Magic'', the game of ''Magic'', or the storylines of ''Magic''.
 
 
There are deprecated categories that I was to phase out but can no longer do so. These include [[http://wiki.mtgsalvation.com/index.php?title=Category:Affiliations&curid=3451&diff=106982&oldid=105849 Affiliations], [[:Category:Magic storyline planes]]/[[:Category:Planes]] (for [[:Category:Magic planes]], considering the overlap and the lack of exclusivity between game and storyline planes, and the fact that this is a far too subtle point to need such distinction).
 
 
With respect to categorisation, unless you guys don't care too much about it, draft up something regarding standards and promote good (and non-ugly) coding.
 
 
Cheers. --[[User:Magic Mage|<font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">agic</font> <font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">age</font>]] ([[User_talk:Magic_Mage|<font color="red">talk!</font>]]) 14:18, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
 
 
==Categories and character stubs==
 
Seriously, why did you undo all my categorisation work? It all seems really foolish and bull-/pig-headed, especially without justification.
 
 
If you were the person at the top of the chain making the decision to, well, screw things up, I'd like you to explain why you did what you did from January onwards. If you were going to make such a change that negatively affected the wiki, the reasons for which aren't clear or readily discernible, it might have been good to explain yourself. --[[User:Magic Mage|<font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">agic</font> <font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">age</font>]] ([[User_talk:Magic_Mage|<font color="red">talk!</font>]]) 15:27, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
 
 
:Also, why have you undone the merges? The site never needed, does not need, and will not need literally thousands of stubs that won't get any longer on characters.
 
 
:Admittedly, I overlooked the fact that you probably didn't think long and hard before you did and do things but now it's impossible to find characters, for example, from similar storyline arcs or to read through all of them in as short a time as possible ('cause finding is now via the massive and massively nonspecific category "Characters", sifting takes forever, and clicking/closing/switching tabs takes another eternity).
 
 
:On the plus side, well, at least we sort of had autoregistering users under control. --[[User:Magic Mage|<font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">agic</font> <font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">age</font>]] ([[User_talk:Magic_Mage|<font color="red">talk!</font>]]) 15:31, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
 
 
::Here's an extract from WP:
 
 
::"Every Wikipedia page should belong to at least one category. (However, there is no need to categorize talk pages, redirects, or user pages, though these may be placed in categories where appropriate.) In addition, '''each categorized page should be placed in all of the ''most specific'' categories to which it logically belongs.''' This means that if a page belongs to a subcategory of C (or a subcategory of a subcategory of C, and so on) then it is ''not'' normally placed directly into C. For exceptions to this rule, see Non-diffusing subcategories below."

== Guild Champions ==
 
 
Good work setting up the Ruric Thar page. Think we can make a project of getting all the guild champions in? I can handle uploading the art and filling out the main body if you can get the character boxes and references set up.[[User:Barinellos|Barinellos]] ([[User talk:Barinellos|talk]]) 04:01, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
 
 
Yes, we can do that --[[User:Hunter61|Hunter61]] ([[User talk:Hunter61|talk]]) 04:22, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
 
 
== [[Slivers/Trivia]] ==
 
 
Has that been updated for M14? [[User:InThePeachGarden|InThePeachGarden]] ([[User talk:InThePeachGarden|talk]]) 15:59, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

==''Theros'' material==
 
Hi Hunter,
 
 
As you seem to be the most active of all the users and, indeed, sysops of the wiki, I thought I might make this suggestion to you. As things such as trivia (e.g., reprinted cards) are things that are going to be readily searchable, these things can probably take a back seat as things such as official storyline or setting stuff from dailymtg.com (e.g., [http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/263c "Planeswalker's Guide, Pt. 3"]) or MaRo's design columns are added.
 
 
Having gone back and searched for good sources or specific articles to fill out and support statements, I know it's a real pain in the butt to not have done this as things are made known (even if it's relatively dull, routine, and time-consuming; but, they do say a stitch in time saves nine!).
 
 
Just a thought. If you have thoughts of you own, I'd be glad to hear them. :)

==Just a 'nice job'==
 
Nice job on editing and maintaining the wiki.
 
 
Shame not more are also editing (but it's a volunteer thing of course). —[[User:Magic Mage|<font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">agic</font> <font color="dark"><b>M</b></font><font color="darkred">age</font>]] ([[User_talk:Magic_Mage|<font color="red">talk!</font>]]) 12:07, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

  • User talk:Hunter61/Archive 1 (2006–2013)

Please do not add things like this

For instance,

Troacctid has done a good job of maintaining the article, keeping in what is appropriate and keeping out what is not and rewriting it in a reasonable and readable way.

Cheers. —Magic Mage (talk!) 13:55, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
