Help (Creature Creation)[edit]

Hey, I made my creature as best as I can using the template you showed me. For some reason it was not giving me the code usage for the special qualities and such on the basic page so I went and found a page that was using it. From there things seemed to work out. It now has its own page in the Creatures section... not completely sure as to which section since I just pressed add new creature. Anyway, I figured you would like to know how far I have made it, and that if nothing else you will know where to find it. Also, since you mentioned you might chime in and give suggestions and such when you get to look at it. Dimidium Troll Also, it seems that I have figured out how to link into pages as well. You are a good teacher, thanks for the instruction! --Lyrad8791 22:56, 4 January 2011 (MST)

Question (Dealing with Spam)[edit]

I have left a similar message on Green Dragons Talk page but I figure I should be thorough with this. It seems there are a few Users that are posting spam and doing a redirect for their User page to the mentioned Spam. One instance is this link here. I don't know the procedure for deleting spam so I am asking you and the owner. I was just wondering if I should just mention it and leave be or if I should delete the contents of the page since I don't know how I would delete the page itself. Lyrad8791 23:57, 8 January 2011 (MST)

Well, the long and the short of it is you shouldn't probably bother to do anything. Only Admins can totally delete a page. Likewise, only admins can ban a user. Whenever I come across spam, I blank the page, and then add a delete template. After that, I save changes with something like "Delete this spam" in the edit summary. Usually Jazzman is pretty good about catching these and deleting them for real. I don't know the official site policy on users handling spam, but no one has asked me to stop, so I still do it. One thing, however, is to make sure that the page never had any content on it. We don't want to delete a page that once had content, just because it now has spam. Like I said, us users can't do much in the way of permanent change (that's the admin's job), so if you want to turn a blind eye, no one will blame you. However, if you delete a bunch, someone might give you a nifty little barnstar like I have at the top of this page. --Badger 00:02, 9 January 2011 (MST)

Help (Creating an Animal)[edit]

So... you mentioned something about tables and things like that? i did find what each thing means ( d20M Creature ) but what i need is the stuff it lists in the examples please. -Ozzy1234567890 11:06, 24 January 2011 (MST)

Well, here is a link to every homebrew d20M creature. One of them is bound to have examples of what you need. Jazzman left a comment on one of your messages with some suggestions of how he would do it. You might want to check that out. --Badger 12:17, 24 January 2011 (MST)
Might this be what you are looking for? JazzMan 12:22, 24 January 2011 (MST)
It's exacly what I needed. Thanks for the help! --Ozzy1234567890 10:53, 25 January 2011 (MST)

Help (4e Community)[edit]

Hey Badger, Do you know anyone who's really good at making D&D 4e stuff, but is also good at changing 4e stuff (you know, like, changing monsters from the monster manual)? --Axl 22:11, 1 February 2011 (MST)

Well, I'll be honest, I don't know how active they are anymore, but Sepsis has done quite a bit of 4e work (and is an admin here, so he might still be active-ish). For some reason I want to say Sam Kay also knows 4e a bit, but I don't think he's active on this wiki much anymore (again, I could be wrong on both points). Those are the two names that spring to mind, but I want to be clear that I don't know how much (if any) help then can/will be. --Badger 22:21, 1 February 2011 (MST)
Thanks for trying to help. But the reason was actually to help me with my Pumped Up sourcebook. But I'm deleting it now. Sorry for bothering you. --Axl 21:30, 16 March 2011 (MDT)
No problem, I'm here to help. --Badger 00:54, 30 May 2011 (MDT)

Help (Sandboxes)[edit]

Hey badger it is Dj00345. I wanted to ask you if there is a way to create ur own sandbox? I wanted to create one myself and don't know how to?... Can u help me out and explain how to make one?? Dj00345.

It's really easy, just add a /sandbox after your username, for example User:Dj00345/sandbox. You can put anything on the page, so sandbox, or sandbox1, or ninja_of_the_winterlands, or whatever you want. If you go to that page you'll be prompted to make a new page with that name. It's easy. --Badger 13:31, 1 March 2011 (MST)

Help (Pictures)[edit]

hey badger. it is me Dj00345. i just added a image to one of my pages. and the picture is too big. how do i make it small enough to fit on the page??? can you help me at all??? the page is called Zendra. please help me..... Dj00345 17:42, 3 March 2011 (MST)

I went ahead and changed the size. Check out the code and you can learn for next time. You can change the text by editing the code. You can change the size of the picture by increasing or decreasing the pixels. --Badger 17:53, 3 March 2011 (MST)
Thx. Got it now! ;) Dj00345 10:14, 6 March 2011 (MST)

Help (Stubs)[edit]

Hey one more question.... If I want to help finish a STUB page, do I just go ahead and edit it, or do I have to wait for someone to give me an answer??? Dj00345 10:14, 6 March 2011 (MST)

I usually check to see when the stub template was added, how long the page has gone un-edited, and if the original author is still around. If it looks like no one else is going to do it, just jump right in. On pages that are a little more complete, and just missing little things here and there, it might be better to leave a message on the talk pages with your suggested changes, and give the community a week or so to talk about it. --Badger 12:10, 6 March 2011 (MST)
And if I finish what the stub template says needs to be fixed,, do i remove the template??? Dj00345 17:53, 6 March 2011 (MST)
I assume you're asking about Dhampir, which just needs another adventurer? Yeah, that you can just add whenever you think of one, and remove the stub template when you do. --Badger 18:05, 6 March 2011 (MST)
Alrighty then. Thx again. And yes I am asking about dhampir Dj00345 18:33, 6 March 2011 (MST)
I ended up removing Template:Stub from the dampir. See the history for what the edit was. --Green Dragon 18:39, 6 March 2011 (MST)

Question (User Creation Log)[edit]

hey badger. i was just looking around on the Wiki and ended up in the User Creation log. where it shows every account that has been created. i went down to the date i helped my friend get an account on this wiki and saw it. then i went to December dates to see if my account was there. (i was bored and wanted to see). Apparently, my account i guess doesn't exist... i didnt see my account name anywhere in there... Is That A Good Thing or A Bad Thing.??????? Please answer..... Dj00345 20:15, 11 March 2011 (MST)

Huh, that's interesting. Well, do you recall creating an account? It does appear that you never made one, but you are certainly logged in and making edits. To make an account you need to log in. If you log in and make edits, you should have an account. I don't know what's going on, I'd ask Green Dragon if you're concerned. --Badger 20:36, 11 March 2011 (MST)
Well see. I made an account. I guess it didn't recognize it. I didn't get the message that green dragon sends to you saying that you are now a dnd wikian. I never got that message... Dj00345 09:54, 12 March 2011 (MST)
That's not an automated message, GD goes through and does those manually, so it's possible he just missed you. If you have an options menu at the top right corner of the screen that says "Dj00345, my talk, my preferences, my watchlist, my contributions, logout" you're probably a member and the site is just a little hinky. --Badger 12:40, 12 March 2011 (MST)
Yeah I have all those. So it must be some sort of glitch maybe...? Dj00345 12:43, 12 March 2011 (MST)
Yeah, as far as I can tell you're a full-blooded wikian, and the wiki is just screwing up. If you're concerned you can leave a message on Green Dragon's talk page, either asking him there, or directing him to this conversation. --Badger 12:46, 12 March 2011 (MST)
I'm not really concerned. i was just making sure that the wiki wasn't screwed up or anything. i was just keeping an eye out. thx for the help badger! Dj00345 14:57, 12 March 2011 (MST)
Oh, the wiki screws up all the time. This isn't anything major, so I wouldn't worry about it. --Badger 15:46, 12 March 2011 (MST)

Question (Multi-classing)[edit]

Alright, so I think I'm doing this right. And I suppose this will be the first question I will ask, is it possible to go back to a class that specifically says you can't after multiclassing? Even if the class you multiclass with says you can? (Sorry if you don't understand or if this seems stupid.)--Raem 17:35, 12 March 2011 (MST)

First, yeah, you did everything correctly. Now, let me try to understand your question. I think if the 2nd class explicitly says "you can multi-class, even if your first class says you cannot" then you can. However, if the 2nd class doesn't say that, you're out of luck. That said, it's really up to your DM. --Badger 17:42, 12 March 2011 (MST)

Help (Campaign Creation)[edit]

Hey badger! Dj00345. I have a question. I'm thinking of making my own campaign setting and was just wondering where to go in order to create the "Supplement" pages for it??? I took a look at the "Valgora" campaign setting and it's edit stuff. And noticed that the links said Valgora supplement. Where do I go to make one of those pages except under a different campaign setting of course... Dj00345 13:57, 5 April 2011 (MDT)

Oh, well, as far as I know there is no official formatting for creating campaign settings. This little box might make it easier to add to a campaign setting, just replace "MyPage" with the name of your page, and "MySetting" with the name of your setting:
If you'd like, I'm sure someone can help you making a footer/header for your campaign setting and using it as a preload. My guess is Hooper would be the guy to ask about that, as I think Valgora is his setting, and you seem to like that one. --Badger 18:30, 5 April 2011 (MDT)

Help (Class Creation)[edit]

Hello it was recomended to me that you might be able to help me with a concept. You see me and my friends are planning to start a DnD 3.5 OP campaign (so crazy templates etc...) But im new to dnd so I have no idea how to make the class/template/race I wanted. the concept I came up with was a Prototype character based off of the game prototype for the xbox 360. Im not quite sure weither it would be a class a template or a race. So I was wondering if you could help me make it? (or make it for me)? -- Grunt 17:03, 25 April 2011 (MDT)

Well, let me begin by saying I've never played Prototype, so I probably can't help you with much. However, here's how I'd recommend you try it.
If you want to use existing classes, here's what I'd suggest: I don't know if you're familiar with gestalt characters, but that's what I'd recommend. Basically, you combine the best parts of two classes into one super-class. I'd recommend something like a Psion with an emphasis in psychometabolism, or maybe psychokinesis. From there, I'd make your other class something that would work well with the abilities of your psion, so maybe rogue. I like rogues a lot, so maybe I'm just biased. It sounds like a barbarian might also work well. Since you're going for overpowered, I think a gestalt Psion/Tome Barbarian would best approximate what you're looking for.
However, if you're looking to create your own homemade material, here's what I'd suggest: Start with a beefy Hit Die, like a d10, give yourself medium or good Base attack bonus(like the rogue or fighter), good fortitude and reflex saves (+12 at 20) and bad will saves (+6 at 20). After that, I'd give yourself a limited spell list, pulling your favorite spells from psionics, and use Constitution instead of Intelligence for the key ability. After that, add on a bunch of heavy hitting power class skills, using classes like Threat, Tome Barbarian, and maybe even Death Knight for ideas.
I hope this helps. --Badger 17:03, 25 April 2011 (MDT)

Help (Campaign Settings)[edit]

You asked if I wanted help, I do. I go straigh to the point.

I would want to make an own:

  1. make a page with the info about classes "and the world" and "how to make a class character".
  2. Then put a link to it in the Classes.
  3. make links that change pages adn scrolls down to an article.
  4. learn to make footers
  5. page for my classes that are adapted for my campaign setting.
I've numbered each of the questions you have, and I'll answer them in order. Let me know if you need more detail on any of them
1. If you want to make a page about classes for your Campaign Setting, just make a standard page for your Campaign setting. If you want, you can use the "Add New Campaign Setting Info" thing that I made here. As far as I know there is no codified pre-load for this, so you can just model it off a page that you like, or do it on your own.
2. Putting a link to it is just like adding any other link. You simply type this code: [[Name_Of_Page | Display Text]].
For example, you would probably make the pages named "Classes_(MyCampaign_Supplement)", so your code would say: [[Classes_(MyCampaign_Supplement) | Classes in MyCampaign]]. Naturally, you'll want to replace "MyCampaign" with whatever the name of your campaign is.
3. Making links that link to a specific section is also pretty easy. You use the same format that you used above for creating a link, and to link to a particular section, you put a #SectionName after the name of the page. For example, if you wanted to make a link to this section, you would write " [[User_Talk:Badger#Help_(Campaign Settings) | Display Text]].
4. Making footers is as easy as making a page. First you make a page and put on it whatever you want the footer to say. Name the page something like "Navigation Footer (MyCampaign Supplement)". After that, you just have to include that page at the bottom of every page you want a footer. Only, this time, instead of using brackets like you normally use for a link (These: "[[]]"), use braces (These: "{{}}")
5. Again, just make a page that's name ends with (MyCampaign Supplement), and put a list of classes and changes. You may find it is easier to make full on tables to show changes, or just text lists of changes. It's up to you.
One last note, as helpful as I may be with this, User:Hooper is probably better. He is the one who rates most of the campaign settings, and he is the one who has one of the most complete campaign settings on this wiki. --Badger 16:47, 30 May 2011 (MDT)

For Identification Purposes?[edit]

Ok now i'm curious why you moved my page... made it loads of fun to try and find it through my simple input of the address it was sitting at without the variant 3.5 mumbo jumbo.

I'm just curious why you did it, I understand that there WAS a Dragoon class that was made and deleted for whatever reason... That's why i made it a Dragoon Lancer, there was someone who made a Dragoon that i thought was totally whacked out on ADnD and well I felt it needed a do-over, pouring through the books i found a nice combination that is actually based on pre-existing 3.0 and 3.5 edition material, short of some attack/ Wings purposes it is all based on the rules. I think it works marvelously and when i find the actual balance i would really hope people start picking it up. It was one of my favorite classes in FF Tactics, short of the huge error in missing people because they moved while you were in the air (Huge disappointment there) but getting back on track. I would appreciate a simple explanation, and well some feedback would be nice since you seem to have been the ONLY person on here who has done anything of note to my Dragoon Lancer.


Badger didn't mean any offense. All homebrew pages are (supposed to be) appended with an identifying tag such as (3.5e Creature) or (d20M Advanced Class). JazzMan 19:14, 7 June 2011 (MDT)
Yep, Jazzman summed it up. Sorry for any confusion it may have caused. There should have been a redirect from the old URL to the updated one, I don't know why that wasn't working (but it appears to be working now). I've not actually read the page, but since my vacation has just begun I'll get around to it (sooner or later) and leave some thoughts on the talk page. Once again, sorry for any confusion or trouble this may have caused; I was just following policy.--Badger 20:24, 7 June 2011 (MDT)
Well i was really just curious as to the why... since it really didn't seem to have been a part of any of the other classes that i looked at. I have been going through and trying to reflect any changes i've come across and would really like some insight anyone has. Gainesja 04:34, 12 June 2011 (EST)
People are really, really, really, bad about adding those tags, so I'm sure there are many pages floating around that don't have them yet. Though more pages have them than not, so if you haven't seen any yet you must just be really lucky. JazzMan 07:40, 12 June 2011 (MDT)
I think on that day alone I moved like 3 or 4 other classes and deities. It's just something I do every so often, when I notice a few pages in the recent changes need it. --Badger 10:27, 12 June 2011 (MDT)

Admin Nomination[edit]

I hope that you accept the recent nomination for adminship that has been activated for you. Please go to Requests for Adminship/Badger to reply to the nominee questions. I look forward to seeing the community's thoughts!   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   06:10, 19 June 2011 (MDT)

Thank you for your nomination, as well as your support. I accept the nomination, and I look forward to continuing to contribute to the community, either as a administrator, or as a user. --Badger 20:09, 19 June 2011 (MDT)
Welcome to Adminship. You are now part of "The Face" of D&D Wiki. Honestly, as you will notice, not much has been changed now that you are an admin. If anything, I would say more burden is placed on you. I recommend you take a look at Special:ListGroupRights if you have not already. Some of the the new features' uses pertaining to D&D Wiki follow. You can now delete pages, protect pages, rollback edits, block users and IP's, edit every page, patrol edits, and do a couple more minor things.
  • Deleting pages is normally done through Category:Candidates for Deletion. Anything with a good reason to be deleted on that page should be deleted. The other time pages should be deleted is when someone makes a certain page and after a few edits they either blank the page or replace it with something like "Please delete this". If this page consisted of close to just the preload, just delete it.
  • Protecting pages has quite a few different times when it should be used. Pages should be protected according to the author's wishes (with Template:Locked Page added to the top of the page in question), in case of conflict (with Template:Temp Locked Page added to the top of the page in question), in case of OGC published materials (with Template:OGL Top added to the top of the page in question and Template:OGL Bottom added to the bottom), or finally if the page is a vital part of D&D Wiki's organization. If it deals with D&D Wiki's organization it either needs to be be protected from IP edits or all non-sysop edits. As a rule of thumb pages up to two tiers deep (up for discussion/rethinking) from the Main Page are normally locked to anyone but sysops and all the others are just protected from IP edits. For Example 3.5e Homebrew is protected from all non-sysop edits whereas a deeper in page like LA 0 Races is only protected from IP edits. No template needs to be added to pages if they are part of D&D Wiki's organization (even though some do exist like Template:Admin Locked Page)
  • Blocking a user or IP should only be used after an IP or user vandalizes a certain page. To block someone just click "block" (found on RC, the diff in question, the userpage, etc) and fill out the corresponding form. For a typical vandalism attack I normally block the user for two weeks. Certain things demand a longer block and others a shorter. No standards have been set for block lengths, use your best judgment.
  • Editing every page on D&D Wiki mostly means you can now edit the SRD and the MSRD. Feel free to edit them if inaccuracies are found. If interested further please look at the SRD ToDO List or the MSRD tasks. Of course that is only the base. There is never enough help to get everything done, so I am sure your help would be appreciated.
  • Patrolling edits should, in a nutshell, be used when you have looked over an edit and fixed everything that needs to be fixed (this includes reviewing the content with templates, answering questions, etc).
I know this is really long-winded, so I'll keep the rest short. You have more burden on yourself now that you are an admin because users will be looking at you for editing help, knowledge of the standards, etc. It's a bit more work, but I really hope you enjoy being an admin and I hope you decide to stay around on D&D Wiki for a while more to come. Welcome to Adminship, again you're now part of "The Face" of D&D Wiki. --Green Dragon 12:58, 26 June 2011 (MDT)
With regard to Requests for Adminship#Exceptions, your account's inactivity led to your adminship being removed. I would like to say that D&D Wiki is very grateful for your assistance and should you decide to return your work will always be appreciated, and we would like to see you fulfill that role if you feel it is something you want to pursue. The option is always available for your expertise. Thanks again. --Green Dragon (talk) 07:52, 29 October 2014 (MDT)

Modifiers Added, But for future refrence,[edit]

what are the modifiers to use? Class, Prestige Class, NPC, Monster, Equipment, Campaign, Quest, Deity, Trait, Flaw, Feat, Spell, Race are the ones i can think of, am i missing any? Also, Is there a way i can set a page to only accept changes that I approve?

I've corrected the spelling of the modifiers above (and added a few more). Those are all the ones I can think of off the top of my head (and all the major ones), but I am sure there are more obscure ones. As for your second question, no there is not. However, you can use the "watch" tab, at the top of each page, and any changes that are made to that page will show up in the "my watchlist" page linked in the top right corner of the page (when you're logged in). You can click on "diff" to see the changes made in each edit. This is about as close as you can get to what you want. --Badger 19:26, 14 July 2011 (MDT)

Hi I was interested in joining the D&D WIKI but it seams your create account is broken[edit]

Hi, I was trying to find the webmaster but didn't see a link to leave a message for one. Maybe you can forward this on to her/him/them.

Anyway, I went to create an account and tried to make an account but it seams to be broken. A box keeps popping up saying type two words to in to prevent span but the silly thing just keeps cycling and won't go away to let you create the account. I tried at least a dozen times to get past it but always comes back. Very frustrating!

And now the fool thing shows up trying to post this message.

Does it mention it is related to CloudFlare (D&D Wiki:General disclaimer)? --Green Dragon 17:05, 30 July 2011 (MDT)
If you can give me the exact error message you're getting, that would help immensely. What name are you trying to register? Is it possible that someone has already registered that name? Green Dragon, who responded above me, is the owner/operator of the website, so he's probably your best bet for a fix. --Badger 00:37, 31 July 2011 (MDT)

Thank You[edit]

I wished to thank you for your recent remarks on my page. And to acknowledge your intrinsic and direct approach.

Any time? But seriously, I have no idea who you are or what page you're talking about (I've been a whirlwind of edits these past few days), but you're welcome. Let me know if there's anything else you need. In the future, don't forget to sign your posts with --~~~~ or by pressing the signature button. --Badger 18:51, 24 August 2011 (MDT)
Your deletion of a page was most appreciated.
Oh, well, glad I could help. --Badger 19:19, 24 August 2011 (MDT)
Could you extend your gracious policy upon a few of my other incomplete works?
Policy says that we're supposed to wait at least 2 weeks before deleting anything. If I've deleted anything sooner than that, I apologize. Most of our to-be-deleted content is months, if not years old, though (so you should have plenty of time). If your content has a delete template, I'll check on the history, and if it looks like you're making progress on it, I'll give it time. If you give me the links you want me to keep an eye out for, I'll get around to checking on them later. Also, if I delete anything that you'd like back, I think can restore it easily (I've never tried, but I know I should be able to). --Badger 19:29, 24 August 2011 (MDT)
I understand. I would like 75% of all my work deleted (noting most is incomplete, and I have no wish to complete 75%). I have only a few articles here; and have a desire to complete the 25%. The other work only hurts my prestige.
Right, well, place the code {{delete|~~~~~|Author has abandoned.}} to the top of every incomplete page you don't want to keep, and I'll delete them as I get around to them. --Badger 19:45, 24 August 2011 (MDT)
It is finished.
Is there a reason that you're signing out and not signing your comments when leaving a message to me, but logging in to edit your pages? You're not trying to hide your identity, are you? --Badger 20:00, 24 August 2011 (MDT)
No. I simply wanted to make sure you were interested before damming the pages. --Frankenkesey 20:12, 24 August 2011 (MDT)
Well, it's not policy to delete pages just because the author doesn't want them anymore. Arguably you should be using the "abandoned" template instead, but I've never seen anyone adopt one of those pages and fix it up, so I don't know that it's a very useful template (although it's a good idea). It's my personal belief that we should just delete unfinished and unusable material, rather than letting it stick around as abandoned for years. If your pages don't have enough content for someone else to take and finish up, I'll delete them. However, if they have enough already, I'll swap out delete with abandoned. --Badger 20:12, 24 August 2011 (MDT)
This maxim sounds fair. --Frankenkesey 20:15, 24 August 2011 (MDT)

Master of the twin paths[edit]

Just created the "Master of the twin paths" for 3.5e custom prestige classes. It was moved to "formatting issues" soon after.

My question is simple, is now officially removed or is it waiting to be checked? If it is removed, how may I improve it to have it added to the homebrew category it fits.

Also how do I format it correctly?

with many thanks, Ryulin18

You're doing a great job

Right, well, good news! Master of the twin paths hasn't been removed, it was just moved (for a totally unrelated reason). You can find you creation here.
First off, your page was moved to include an "identifer", which means I added "_(3.5e_Prestige_Class)" to the end of your class name. We use these to keep all our content straight, and every page is supposed to have one.
If you check out other Prestige classes, like this one, you'll notice the bottom has a sort of footer that works as navigation, as well as some categories. You'll want to add those to your page (not those exact ones, but the ones that apply to your class). I'd search through other prestige classes until you find one that seems like yours, and check out what categories you'll want to include. Let me know if you need anything else. --Badger 19:18, 24 August 2011 (MDT)


If it existed, you should get on it right now. But it doesn't so... JazzMan 13:37, 28 August 2011 (MDT)

Master of the twin paths - Part 2[edit]

Okay. I have added breadcrumbs and the categories! Is it okay now?

Any advice to get it finished?

much thanks, Ryulin

Alright, well, the cats and breadcrumbs look a lot better now. The next thing I'd say is fluff. Everything always needs more fluff. Well, almost everything. Check out a featured article like this one for notes on making your page better. If you're committed enough, you can turn your page into a featured article. --Badger 13:53, 28 August 2011 (MDT)


Hi Badger,

I realized that I took my trolling too far yesterday. Seriously, I'm not a jerk like that usually. I have just been using this website as out outlet, so to speak, which is pretty immature. Anyways, I've decided to quit my trolling here altogether and also to stop harboring resentment for Green Dragon and Hooper.

In the case of Green Dragon, I realized that teasing him may have been fun, it really was a childish way to burn off steam over real life issues.

In the case of Hooper, I realized that he's just like a lot of other D&D players I've met and gotten along with: he's got a strong personality and reflects that with strong opinions. And really, that's a good thing, not a bad thing. Unfortunately, I let situations where I saw him butt horns with other users sway me to dislike him.

I was logged into a chatroom that both of you were in last night (although I was afk), and although most of your conversation was cut off, I realized that I was being pretty stupid and you are decent guys.

So, my apologies to you (and Hooper), for the nonsense I stirred up. Cheers. --Aarnott 08:15, 31 August 2011 (MDT)

From my administrator standpoint: That was mean, you shouldn't do that. I have half a mind to ban you here and now, regardless of policy.
From my human being standpoint: Ehh, just don't do it again. At least, not on important pages. I probably over-reacted in my message asking you to cut it out. It wasn't really that big of a deal. No hard feelings, at least on my end. It is my suspicion, though I can't speak for him, that Hooper also thought it was no big thing. --Badger 14:02, 31 August 2011 (MDT)

Master of the twin paths - Part 3[edit]

Added all the fluff I dare to. Can you give me an idea of what to do next before I can have this page legitimized (I'm an English teacher, so using a z there hurt) and sent to my DM?

I really want this rated...Anyone want to do it?

Hey Badger[edit]

I saw that you Changed the name of my raze Urgalz to Urgalz (3.5e Race) I forgot to do that and I just wanted to thank you for that. I looked at your the classes that you created and I do sai that the Hooker (3.5e class) is kinda funny at least i haven't lauged so much when I looked at some class. --Baharas 05:54, 16 September 2011 (MDT)

Well, thank you; I'm pretty proud of that Hooker class, even though it's a April Fools class. Don't worry about missing that identifier, lot's people get it wrong the first few times, just try to include it for all the future pages you make. If you've already made pages without identifiers, you can use the "move" tab at the top of that page to move it to a page with the correct identifier. Welcome to the wiki. --Badger 18:09, 16 September 2011 (MDT)
yeah I noticed when you moved it how to change it and I just noticed that you were a admin so congratulation for that :P
and I want to ask you: I am creating a class named Guardian, Variant2 (3.5e Class) why does this look like this?
When the page says "remove this entire line" it means that entire line of text from the edit window, not just everything after it says "remove this line" (so also delete the bit that says <nowiki><!- REMOVE THIS ENTIRE LINE). I've fixed it for you, but you can see what I did by checking out this diff. Also, don't forget to sign your posts by typing --~~~~ at the end of your message, or by hitting the signature button in the toolbar (the one that looks like a bunch of loops, second from the end).--Badger 13:59, 19 September 2011 (MDT)
yeah sorry about that forgot and thanks for helping me :P --Baharas 02:26, 20 September 2011 (MDT)
No worries, that's why I'm here. Kinda. Mostly. It's why I enjoy being here at least. --Badger 02:34, 20 September 2011 (MDT)

Patronage Featured Article?[edit]

Hey, Badger. I've put in images on most of my pages for my Patronage (4e Campaign Setting). Could you take a look and decide if more is needed to get your vote for Featured Article status?--Wrecan 16:42, 16 September 2011 (MDT)

Wow. Those pages look so much better now with pictures, in my opinion. I've changed my vote on the FA nomination accordingly. Good work. --Badger 18:09, 16 September 2011 (MDT)


I just wanted to ask you how can I put Image on my races pages I tryed but it doesent work? --Baharas 05:05, 29 September 2011 (MDT)

Uh, well, let me first start by making sure the image you want to upload is legal. Assuming it is, what you have to do is type out [[File:Image_Name.jpg]] and save the changes. Once you've done that, your "image" will show up as a red link. Click on that link. It should take you to a page that will allow you to upload your chosen image. If you've already uploaded the image to our image server, it appear right away, rather than as a red link. If you can show me what image you want to upload, and where it needs to go, I can show you in more detail. As far as I know, that should work. Images tend to go a little wonky every so often, but they seem to be working just fine right now. --Badger 21:40, 29 September 2011 (MDT)
well I tryed that but it didn't work and here is a link to the pic [1] and I am trying to put it on Urgalz (3.5e Race) --Baharas 03:53, 3 October 2011 (MDT)
you don't have to do anything I found out what i was doing wrong and I finally uploaded pic on Urgalz (3.5e Race) and Knasari (3.5e Race) --Baharas 05:51, 7 October 2011 (MDT)

Copperwood permission[edit]

Hi from new account. I came across this wiki by accident and just happened to notice a message saying "awaiting permission from copperwood" for a couple of articles.

Well, I am the one and only copperwood. Those permissions have been waiting for about, ooh, 5 years ago! Bit of a long time, but I created the account on Wizards ages ago to submit those articles and haven't logged back in since they changed to 'D&D Insider'

If it matters, and the articles are still available, then you have my permission!

Greetings Badger[edit]

Greeting Badger, this is Lyrad8791. We have talked a bit before on some of my stuff that I have submitted a while back. I was wondering if you had the time to take a look at my sandbox and tell me what you think about my charts there. I also have a second sandbox, which I have dedicated to my world that I am creating. Since the charts didn't fit in with the world itself, I left them in their current location. Anyway, I was hoping I might get some opinions on them, as well as some ideas on how to progress from where I am currently at in my project. If you can think of anyone else who might like to help or would be interested to see what I have thus far, send them over and have them leave a message in the discussion area of either page. The link to the charts is here and the page for what I currently have on my world is here. Thanks for the time you took in reading this, and I hope to hear from you again.

Suggestions and rating help[edit]

Ello Badger!

(insert the badger song -> [2])

Okay seriously, I need help with getting my custom prestige class rated and commented. I am a bit of an addict when it comes to feedback and I am having trouble finding the right places to create attention to my works. Also I have read the forms and guides to a good page but I am not sure I have every thing cowered.

Could you go my work over? Especially the warhammer 40K boltgun. Cant figure out a nice and fitting way of presenting all the upgrades and ammunition options available.

Thanks before hand from --ElvenKingSlave · Weapons Summoner · Talk 03:01, 28 November 2011 (MST)

[Weapon Summoner(3.5 class)]
[Boltgun(3.5 Equipment)]
[Lasgun(3.5 Equipment)]

Right, well, where to begin...
I'm gonna let you know right now, there are a lot of people on this wiki making content, and virtually no one reviewing it. I'd recommend trying to make connections with other users who seem to be pretty active, and set up a sort of co-op where you keep each other in the loop with your stuff, and constantly rate one another's stuff. I'd give your class a once over, but I'm more than swamped at the moment with real world things. I'll be honest, I've been away for so long now that I'm not even sure who is still very active on the wiki.
A quick once over says to me that you've done pretty well at formatting most of your stuff. There are a few things, like the NPC on your Weapon Summoner is wonky. My first edit, however, will have to be striking out your rating because you aren't allowed to rate your own stuff. Sorry, it's the rules.
Other than that, I don't know what to tell you. I'll be free in about two weeks. Send me another message then and I'll see what I can do for you. --Badger 17:44, 28 November 2011 (MST)
Thanks :D Thats all I am asking. --ElvenKingSlave · Weapons Summoner · Talk 07:15, 30 November 2011 (MST)

My created items[edit]

Badger, could I get you to take a look at the Magic items I created and give me an opinion on them? My friends like them, but I think they are a bit biased. Any critiques would be welcome. They are all listed on my user page. Thanks again. -- Irykyl 11:24, 6 March 2012 (MST)

2 things[edit]

First i would like you to know that i've have added 2 feats under the 3e Feats section (Ambidexterity and Armor Proficiency (Heavy))

also something seems to be wrong with sending a confirmation email to allow me to send messages to people.

Please remove all my material from this wiki[edit]

I asked Green Dragon but he refuses. I would like all pages created by me to be deleted from this wiki. The reasons are personal and nobody's business but my own. Thank you for your cooperation. --Scryer's Eve (talk | contribs) 15:56, 26 March 2012 (MDT)

Sorry, but according to policy I'm not allowed to do that. Is it a silly policy? Probably. Do I like that policy? I can't think of a time I have. Do I have to follow it? Tragically. I'm not going to bother asking why you don't want your stuff on the wiki anymore, as it doesn't really matter, but there's nothing I can do. The way I see it, you have two options: First, you can stick around and try and petition the rule change so that your content can be removed. If you can show (through history) that no one else has modified the content you uploaded, that would go a long way to showing that you'd not be removing anyone else's contributions (in my mind at least). Option two is to just walk away angry. It's a pretty lame option, but it's what might happen anyway. --Badger 16:47, 26 March 2012 (MDT)

Homebrew Race Formatting[edit]

When submitting a homebrew race, may I format the top section (Race's name in plural) like a creature page and/or a SRD, or is the markup, or some version thereof, supplied at the edit/create page all that's accepted?Omegatiger121 (talk) 13:34, 16 June 2012 (MDT)

Real-time human-moderated games[edit]

hello. i was looking for a site that offers real-time human-moderated games. do you know of any?

thank you.

Am I allowed to proceed?[edit]

Hi badger, I'm sure this happens a lot but I just pulled your name first from the Admin list, hoping to get someone to talk to. Anyway, my question was aimed towards the lack of content that exists for 3.5 and has not been posted. While I understand that a lot of classes are not core, Psion as well as its including features are listed, and so I thought I might request to put up more classes, such as from the Magic of Incarnum book, or the Complete Warrior, Divine, Ect. I would love to punch in as much time as needed to get this done. My players love this wiki and I have no time to go fishing for spells in countless books. Please let me know. Thanks :)

Hi there. Welcome, and we're glad to see that you like the wiki, and want to contribute. Unfortunately, you aren't allowed to add just any content you want. Any content we have has to be licensed in a way that allows for free distribution. The complete warrior/divine, and many other books have not been licensed under the OGL (open gaming license). If you know of content that is licensed under the OGL (or a similar license), contact an admin, and we'll double check and then give you the go ahead to transcribe it.
There are plenty of other ways you can contribute, though! Here you can find a list of abandoned pages, each of which could use some work. An editorial eye could be used on just about any page here on the wiki, and there are tons of people who would love for you to read (and rate) their creations. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask me, or any other admin. Cheers. --Badger (talk) 20:12, 3 October 2012 (MDT)

Bills and indeed hooks.[edit]

Hi badger, thanks for contacting me. I have no issues with your revert and I'll make my case on the talk page. Marasmusine (talk) 13:31, 5 October 2012 (MDT)

Who to talk to....[edit]

Hey, I was wondering who to talk to about the 3.5 Necromancer homebrew page... it used to have skeletal ally which i really liked, but now it has stitched familiar and i was wondering if it was either possible to view the older page or have the information maybe sent to me, or as i said just who to talk to.

Thanks for your time!


That's the nature of wikis, they are always changing just a little. Luckily, however, you can see the article the way it used to be. if you navigate to the page you want, and click on the "history" tab, you can see every version of the page. Click on the date you want, it it will show you how that page appeared at that time. The most recent version of that page that included the "skeletal ally" is this one. --Badger (talk) 16:58, 13 October 2012 (MDT)

Helpers Page[edit]

I am attempting to implement a "Helpers" page to assist users with their problems. If you would like to help other users with wiki problems, simply add all of the following categories that you feel that you could assist in to your User Page. The Categories available are: [[Category:3.5e Balancing Helper]], [[Category:4e Balancing Helper]], [[Category:Proofreader Helper]], [[Category:Flavor Helper]], and [[Category:General Helper]]. If you choose to put one of the above categories, please also add [[Category:Helper]] as well. Thank you, Salasay Δ 13:44, 5 February 2013 (MST)
