Hello, I started a motion to get you promoted to Admin. If you think you can cope with the additional responsibilities - or not - please say so here. Either way, thanks for your contributions! --Cru121 (ContributionsMessage) 11:05, June 30, 2015 (EDT)


Don't worry too much about what words they use for now... I see the issue, I'll fix it next week with a new template. :) ShoeMaker (Contribs • Message) 11:22, July 8, 2016 (EDT)

  • Okay, so I've started by making {{Roll result}}. It takes parameters of |cf=critical fail, |fl=fail lower boundary & |fu=fail upper boundary for ranges or a single |f=fail value, |sl=success lower boundary & |su=success upper boundary for ranges or a single |s=success value, and |cs=critical success. I know things like crit fail is 5 below the lower fail boundary and whatnot... I'll add calculations to the template when I have more time for things like that when appropriate. I'll also make a template for "Suspected DC range" or whatever it is on the end to use the values entered in the Roll result template and calculate what the minimum needed is. Then, at some point I want to go through and make a {{DC row}} to be able to put all the information on one line and not have to type so much (so don't worry about going around and replacing everything with this new template just yet Wink ShoeMaker (Contribs • Message) 12:19, July 8, 2016 (EDT)

Administrator offer[edit]

Hey there! It's been some time since you declined on DDOt:Administrators/promote/Dywypi despite the nomination being successful. As the only one who objected, not based on your ability or capacity as much based on the fact that almost all the active editors at the time where administrators or above and I didn't see the need to add more, I've noted that things have changed and some of our more active administrators aren't editing as much here. That being the case, I'd like to offer to nominate you myself for the permission set as I think it would be beneficial to the wiki as a whole. Being where-as you declined the previous offer, I thought it prudent to ask you if you'd be interested here first. :) ShoeMaker (Contribs • Message) 11:37, July 31, 2016 (EDT)

  • Thanks for the reoffer although there probably is less "administrator" activity; it still looks as though, the DDO Wiki is still going from strength-to-strength. I'm still quite content in my old ordinary casual robe; so I'll gracefully decline the second offer. Dywypi (ContribsMessage) 07:07, August 2, 2016 (EDT)
    • We can discuss it here. Having the Administrator bit does not require you to do any extra or more complicated work, it just shows you as a trusted user and gives you a few more tools to be able to edit through protected pages, protect pages, delete pages, and a bunch of other stuff you may or may not ever do. I'd like to see you with the tools, even if you have no intention on using them as I'm sure you'll find it handy from time to time to have a little more access. ShoeMaker (Contribs • Message) 10:27, August 2, 2016 (EDT)
  • Perhaps you should reconsider the adminhood offer so that you can combat spam effectively. DDO community need you! --Cru121 (ContribsMessage) 09:23, November 21, 2016 (EST)


You can now simply wrap spam pages in {{ Spam | content... }} to flag them for deletion and comment out the content all in one shot. Thanks for your hard work! :)  👟 ShoeMaker (Contribs • Message) 👟 10:30, January 4, 2018 (EST)
