Welcome

Hi, welcome to Aselia Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Gardle page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! Lanate (talk) 08:23, March 3, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for your recent contributions. However, please note that I have reverted some of your edits and provided my reasoning for doing so in the edit summaries. Also, I am inclined to mention that "god" and "gods" are commonly used in a gender-neutral manner. Nonetheless, I agree that "deity" and "deities" are perhaps better and more appropriate terms in most cases.

Fair warning. If you undo my edits again, I will ban you. Edit warring is not permitted on any wiki, and you should know better than to revert an admin's edits. Rather, you can address your questions or concerns here on your talk page, where I have already initiated a discussion on the matter.

With the Indignation page, I would rather not change any of those translations, but seeing as how Japanese is out of my comfort zone, I really have no opinion. On Loni's page, you are misunderstanding the context in which the title is used. The protagonists are journeying to battle God, capitalized, indicative of a specific, identified entity—not a random deity. In this case, Fortuna is being referred to as God, and no, "Goddess" would not be more appropriate in this context. Leave it alone. On Shizel's page, deitylike isn't a word and can only be considered grammatically correct through the use of a hyphen, thereby "creating" a word: deity-like. I also don't like to mess with word choices when it concerns a game I haven't played, and a former admin wrote that article.

Finally, the Cruxis page. First, you are linking section headers, which results in accessibility issues. Second, you are being redundant by listing the Grand Cardinals, as they have their own page, meaning we should utilize the {{main}} template instead. Likewise, their images only belong on that page and their individual pages. The rest is acceptable, although I will make these changes. Also, now that it has been brought to my attention, the Four Seraphim deserve their own page as well.

Check the following link: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/deitylike

Deitylike/Deity-like is a word.

Jdogno7 (talk) 00:53, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

Wiktionary is not a credible source and contains many invented terms, including the cringe-worthy goddesslike. To these extents, hyphens should be used, as only godlike is acceptable without a hyphen. This is, however, beside the point, as I've stated that I'm not keen on messing with the word choice of a former admin when I've yet to play the game myself. In other words, it's not a big deal, so leave it alone.

Arosia (talk) 01:04, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

In case you don't believe me, you can refer to this page, which clearly states:

Wiktionary is not an arbiter of what is good English; correct English, acceptable English, suitable English, or even grammatical. Wiktionary describes usage, it does not prescribe nor proscribe it, and adheres only to its criteria for inclusion, which state that any term or meaning that can be shown to be in sufficiently widespread use may be included. By including or not including a certain term, it by no means accepts or attempts to promote a certain point of view, but is simply documenting, explaining what is in use in English or any other language.

Just wanted to clarify in the event that someone thinks I'm bashing Wiktionary, which I'm not. My preferred dictionary source has always been Merriam-Webster.

Arosia (talk) 01:28, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

What I was going to say was:

Wikitionary have a criteria of inclusion: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Criteria_for_inclusion

I have been told: "We're a descriptive dictionary, so it's not a matter of what might make sense, or might be a good word, but what is actually used in the language." "It's not enough to have something that makes sense based on similar words: this is a descriptive dictionary, so we go by actual usage as specified in our Criteria for inclusion. This isn't Urban Dictionary, where you can just make stuff up."

Check: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/User_talk:Chuck_Entz at the "DeityDamn" and "Deityforsaken" sections.

I see where you're coming from, and I'm not saying they're not used. I'm just saying they're grammatically incorrect. Also, while they may not "make stuff up", adding words simply because they can be found on the Internet (which, by the way, is what they do) still doesn't impress me enough to incorporate them into my or this wiki's vocabulary.

Arosia (talk) 02:07, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

"I'm just saying they're grammatically incorrect.": Which words are you talking about being grammatically incorrect?

Jdogno7 (talk) 02:12, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

Deitylike and goddesslike are grammatically incorrect and should be hyphenated: deity-like; goddess-like. Only godlike is acceptable without a hyphen.

Arosia (talk) 02:19, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

"Only godlike is acceptable without a hyphen.": Why?

Jdogno7 (talk) 02:23, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

Because it's an actual word with ubiquitous usage. Search any online dictionary and find it. Are you trolling at this point or being serious? Because we're just about done here.

Arosia (talk) 02:43, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

"Because it's an actual word with ubiquitous usage.": Well what defines an "actual word"?

"Are you trolling at this point or being serious?": I am being serious. So asking someone to back up their arguments is being a troll? Is that what you are saying?

Jdogno7 (talk) 02:48, March 4, 2016 (UTC)

Permanent ban

Do you find this cute? Perhaps funny? Because I don't. In fact, I think I've been more than lenient with you. Find another wiki to harass because you're done here.

Arosia (talk) 21:07, March 26, 2016 (UTC)

I thought I recognized your username. Permanent means permanent. Stay away from this wiki.
