@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 June 2016 - 09:09 PM)

I know the wiki which is highly relevant to this forum!

@  Locoman : (26 June 2016 - 07:54 PM)

I didn't know either of those things, to be honest. I thought we were just going by the accuracy and amount of informaiton.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 June 2016 - 07:37 PM)

They all have their demons. Bulbapedia's got a history of creepy admins, Wookipedia's ruthlessly crushed other SW wiki attempts in the past...

@  Locoman : (26 June 2016 - 07:34 PM)

but my favorite wikis of all time are the half-completed wikis out there on wikia that have been abandoned and subsequently overrun by little kids

@  Locoman : (26 June 2016 - 07:33 PM)

There are other good wikis out there too, though. Bulbapedia, Wookieepedia, Nukapedia...

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 June 2016 - 07:33 PM)

Every wiki has good wikipeople trying to wiki at their best.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 June 2016 - 07:21 PM)

Also, it's more entertaining to read.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 June 2016 - 07:07 PM)

In my experience tfwiki's reliability in Transformers is exponentially greater than that of any wikia, even a subject as popular as Marvel.

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 06:11 PM)

Also the Walky guy did this too. He said Marvel Wiki is unreliable, I understand where he's coming from and yes Marvel Wiki has its own flaws but that doesn't mean all of the things people wrote there is wrong. 
 
Also Marvel Wiki user Nausiated is a really good wiki editor. For example his work; http://marvel.wikia....xpanded_History
http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/PeterParker_(Earth-616)/Expanded_History

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 06:11 PM)

Also the Walky guy 

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 06:07 PM)

Yeah that too.

@  Locoman : (26 June 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Also keep in mind that some of these people might have gotten banned from the wiki for various reasons, and are still bitter.

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 04:23 PM)

Yeah but it's kinda frustrating even though they are ignorant comments.:-/

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 June 2016 - 04:21 PM)

If they're not right then it doesn't actually matter what they say.

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 04:18 PM)

Thanks for the answers.

@  Nevermore : (26 June 2016 - 03:51 PM)

That's how I approach it!

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 02:38 PM)

You're right.

@  MEDdMI : (26 June 2016 - 01:47 PM)

Sometimes you just need to ignore the criticism and do it for yourself, if no one else.

@  MEDdMI : (26 June 2016 - 01:40 PM)

There's always going to be naysayers and trolls no matter what you do, regardless of the effort you put in.

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 12:56 PM)

Notveryknighly, Did I said they are right???? it's just all the work you've done and some guy comes and says "This wiki is unreliable becuase wikis can be edited by everyone!" , it's just irritiating. They don't even respect the wiki users (not talking about myself by "wiki users" btw)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (26 June 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Potato!

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 June 2016 - 09:47 AM)

I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 100. What number is it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 June 2016 - 09:26 AM)

Because someone saying that doesn't make it true????

@  tffan01 : (26 June 2016 - 09:15 AM)

Why bother editin the wiki? There's always some douchebag that constantly says wiki is unreliable. Someone even said "I would trust google over TFWiki (yes he's specifically talking about TFWiki) anyday."

Seems a guy in Atlanta shot a 17-year-old to death for egging his Mercedes.

On one hand, the retaliation was clearly out of line.

On the other hand, I'm sorely tempted to print out a copy of the article and tape it to my car; it's been egged twice in the last 10 months, and so I do believe a little wall-to-wall counseling might be in order for the perpetrators.

Well, the kid shouldn't have been egging.

I was kind hoping he didn't die after being gunned, so he could have actually learned something. I hope his family gets through this.

I guarantee that if you tape a copy of that article to your car, within 1 week you will have no intact windows left on said vehicle.
A threat means nothing if you're not prepared to carry it out. They know you're not going to shoot them, FI.

Was the toilet paper on sale, too?


No, of course the kid shouldn't have been vandalizing, but that guy was a whackjob. If it wasn't because of some kid and a carton of eggs, it would have been someone bumping his car in a Wal-Mart parking lot with a shopping cart. Or someone cutting him off in traffic. Or his wife serving him an undercooked steak. Or his kid mouthing off.

If someone is crazy enough to shoot someone because of some eggs, they were a ticking time bomb to begin with.

People are batjive for their cars in Atlanta, but I suppose the fact that it was a /gold/ /entry-level/ luxury car should have been a huge tip-off about the owner's sanity in the first place. Pity, the egging was an improvement over THAT hideous color.

Edit: More details -- the driver actually RETURNED to the egging location. Premeditated, but also dumb because he cruised by AGAIN while police were on the scene. http://www.wsbtv.com...574/detail.html

Yeah and then everyone who's been egging your car will step up and start throwing rocks at your car.

Absolutely! I think it goes without saying. Also as a side note: the location, Joseph E. Boone Boulevard and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard is in one (of 4!) of Atlanta's neighborhoods that made it into a 25 most dangerous neighborhoods to live in list.

This is why people like me are often such hard sells on whether we really need the second amendment in this day and age. This guy is probably not going to go to jail for all that long - although I'd be happy to be proven wrong. Too many people equate "right to bear arms" with "right to use them whenever for whatever reason" to shoot people for stupid-ass reasons.

Yeah, vandalism is terrible. But it's not worth killing someone over. Why the hell is that such a hard concept to some?
