[19:59] * @Graestan runs like a centaur now
[19:59] <@Imperialles> Never do that again :|
[19:59] <@Culator|Blarg> Sorry, we don't hire dirty centaurs.
[19:59] <@Cull_Tremayne> That's the coolest command on the site.
[19:59] <@Gonk|Busy> lol
[19:59] <@GreenTentacle> I-still-don't-know-who.
[20:00] <@The4dotelipsis> EhwahT?
[20:00] <@Graestan> Meetin
[20:00] <@Imperialles> Aight, 2 AM.
[20:00] <@The4dotelipsis> Interesting. If I remain silent for some time, I'm serving a customer. :P
[20:00] <@Imperialles> Start this thing.
[20:00] <@Graestan> First order of business:
[20:00] <@Graestan>
[20:00] <@Graestan> Nothin.
[20:00] <@The4dotelipsis> Zero hour. 9 AM.
[20:00] <@Graestan> Kill.
[20:01] <@Imperialles> Kill.
[20:01] <@ChackJadson> Kill
[20:01] <@Toprawa> Kill
[20:01] <@The4dotelipsis> Kill.
[20:01] <@Graestan> Greyman says kill.
[20:01] <@Cull_Tremayne> And I'm gonna be...high.
[20:01] <@Culator|Blarg> Krill.
[20:01] <@CavalierOne> Kill
[20:01] <@Cull_Tremayne> Also kill.
[20:01] <@Graestan> I tell ya she dead.
[20:01] <@Toprawa> I say you he dead
[20:01] <@Graestan> This one is less cut-and-dry:
[20:01] <@Graestan>
[20:01] <@Eyrezer> Krill it is
[20:01] <@Cull_Tremayne> Keep.
[20:01] <@GreenTentacle> Keep.
[20:01] <@Toprawa> is all the info in there?
[20:01] <@The4dotelipsis> I plead ignorance and abstain. :P
[20:02] <@Graestan> Keep, lots of improvement.
[20:02] <@ChackJadson> Keep. It looks better.
[20:02] <@Graestan> Greyman also sayskeep.
[20:02] <@Imperialles> Abstain.
[20:02] <@CavalierOne> Keep
[20:02] <@Culator|Blarg> I didn't see much of a problem in the first place.
[20:02] <@Culator|Blarg> So keep.
[20:02] <@Gonk|Busy> Kreep.
[20:03] <@Graestan> She's a kept woman.
[20:03] <@Graestan> Next:
[20:03] <@Graestan> No change.
[20:03] <@Toprawa> Kill
[20:03] <@Graestan> FAR is the last edit.
[20:03] <@GreenTentacle> Kill.
[20:03] <@ChackJadson> Acky wants it killed, so kill it
[20:03] <@The4dotelipsis> Destray! Bahleet!
[20:03] <@GreenTentacle> We don't even need to vote.
[20:03] <@Cull_Tremayne> I'm still not sure why we're doing this...
[20:03] <@Graestan> Kill from me and Greyman.
[20:03] <@Eyrezer> Killllllllllll!
[20:03] <@CavalierOne> Kill if Acky wants it to be killed.
[20:03] <@Graestan> Because we need blood.
[20:03] <@GreenTentacle> No change = kill by default
[20:04] <@Graestan> Okay, another closer one:
[20:04] <@The4dotelipsis> And we need to demonstrate that this hen has teeth.
[20:04] <@Graestan>
[20:04] <@Cull_Tremayne> If he's going to fix it eventually, not sure why he wants to de-FA it.
[20:04] <@The4dotelipsis> It's still not up to date.
[20:04] <@Toprawa> Kill
[20:04] <@GreenTentacle> It's not up to date on purpose.
[20:04] <@Culator|Blarg> I'm afraid I have to disagree with Orville, Jack, and Mister. Can't we just do something to his voice box?
[20:04] <@Gonk|Busy> We're voting to probe, yes?
[20:04] <@The4dotelipsis> Keel Bond! Now!
[20:04] <@Cull_Tremayne> Is this a probation vote?
[20:04] <@GreenTentacle> He was avoiding spoilers.
[20:04] <@GreenTentacle> Kill or keep.
[20:04] <@Graestan> Gonk: No, this is from last meeting.
[20:05] <@GreenTentacle> It's acquired intro refs.
[20:05] <@Graestan> I am saying kill, I don't trust that it will be brought completely up-to-date and updated with regularity.
[20:05] <@Graestan> Greyman says kill, too
[20:05] <@The4dotelipsis> Yeah. Its daddy ran away, so...
[20:05] <@ChackJadson> Kill, per Grae
[20:05] <@CavalierOne> Kill.
[20:05] <@Gonk|Busy> Gotta say kill.
[20:05] <@GreenTentacle> Mauser has done a lot of work on it.
[20:06] <@Gonk|Busy> Then it can be a GA.
[20:06] <@GreenTentacle> And it's probably not that far off.
[20:06] <@GreenTentacle> So a reluctant kill vote from me.
[20:06] <@Graestan> Comics are no more.
[20:06] <@Graestan> Okay, time for the new articles to be voted to keep or put on probation.
[20:06] <@Graestan>
[20:06] <@The4dotelipsis> Kill.
[20:06] <@Gonk|Busy> Probedrobe.
[20:06] <@Graestan> Don't get me started on this article.
[20:06] <@Toprawa> Probe
[20:07] <@The4dotelipsis> I mean probe.
[20:07] <@Gonk|Busy> Per Grae :)
[20:07] <@ChackJadson> Probe
[20:07] <@GreenTentacle> Probe.
[20:07] <@Graestan> Probe. Someone revive Solus from death.
[20:07] <@CavalierOne> Probe
[20:07] <@Toprawa> I will remind you that we are not here to debate the existence of monsters.
[20:07] <@Graestan> haha
[20:07] <@Graestan> Anyone else?
[20:08] <@Graestan> She's probed.
[20:08] <@Graestan>
[20:08] <@Toprawa> Keep
[20:08] <@Graestan> Keep.
[20:08] <@The4dotelipsis> Keep.
[20:08] <@GreenTentacle> Keep!!! ;)
[20:08] <@Toprawa> it was GTed
[20:08] <@ChackJadson> Keep
[20:08] <@CavalierOne> Keep
[20:08] <@Graestan> GT did the legwork.
[20:08] <@Culator|Blarg> K.
[20:09] <@Graestan>
[20:09] <@Toprawa> Probe until it can be fixed
[20:09] <@Graestan> Greyman: "Probation unless someone can update it before I can. Either way, I'll be giving it an overhaul when I get home to Canada, like I've said."
[20:09] <@The4dotelipsis> Probe it in the bottom.
[20:09] <@ChackJadson> Probation, I suppose
[20:09] <@GreenTentacle> Meh.
[20:09] <@Graestan> I concur.
[20:09] <@CavalierOne> Probe until its sorted out.
[20:09] <@GreenTentacle> I don't mind keeping and trusting him to fix it.
[20:09] <@GreenTentacle> As long as it isn't featured before then.
[20:09] <@Graestan> He said probe, otherwise I'd tend to agree.
[20:09] <@The4dotelipsis> Eeeeeh, then it's misleading until such time.
[20:10] <@Toprawa> ...
[20:10] <@GreenTentacle> But yeah, if Grey says probe, then I guess I can't argue.
[20:11] <@Culator|Blarg> I wouldn't tough Old Rustface with a ten foot beskad, but probe it anyway.
[20:11] <@Graestan> It's featured far in the future.
[20:11] <@Toprawa> "We gotta get out of this place...if it's the last thing we ever doooo"
[20:11] <@Graestan>
[20:11] <@Graestan> Probe. Greyman concurs.
[20:11] <@Toprawa> apparently Cerea's been fixed?
[20:11] <@ChackJadson> Imp fixed it, no?
[20:11] <@GreenTentacle> Keep.
[20:11] <@GreenTentacle> It's been fixed.
[20:11] <@Toprawa> Keep if it's fixed
[20:11] <@ChackJadson> Yeah. Keep.
[20:11] <@Toprawa> I didn't look at it
[20:11] <@The4dotelipsis> KOTOR CG info added, as far as I can tell. Keep.
[20:11] <@GreenTentacle> Imperialles: Explain yourself, man. :P
[20:12] <@Culator|Blarg> We can keep Remulak.
[20:12] <@CavalierOne> Keep
[20:12] <@Culator|Blarg> I mean Cerea.
[20:12] <@Graestan> I still think it's a bit short, but if you all insist.
[20:12] <@Toprawa> You can reprobe it next meeting :P
[20:12] <@The4dotelipsis> ...not if he doesn't want to get smacked over the head with a newspaper, he can't. :P
[20:13] <@GreenTentacle> Heh.
[20:13] <@Graestan> Narfle the garthok.
[20:13] <@Graestan>
[20:13] <@Toprawa> Harrar himself said it's lacking, and he wrote it
[20:13] <@Toprawa> Probe on his word
[20:13] <@Gonk|Busy> It's hard to barfle nargle zauss.
[20:13] <@Graestan> Is he being overmodest?
[20:13] <@GreenTentacle> He ain't gonna be fixing it anytime soon.
[20:13] <@Graestan> With all those marbles in your mouth.
[20:13] <@ChackJadson> Yeah. I put this up here. It's missing stuff from Dark Journey, and the like
[20:14] <@The4dotelipsis> Pleading ignorance here again.
[20:14] <@ChackJadson> So, probe.
[20:14] <@GreenTentacle> But I don't personally know what's wrong with it.
[20:14] <@Graestan> Dark Journey
[20:14] <@GreenTentacle> If it's missing stuff, then probe.
[20:14] <@Graestan> I vote to strike DJ from canon
[20:14] <@Graestan> Otherwise, probe, yes
[20:14] <@ChackJadson> It could be more comprehensive from bascially everything
[20:14] <@The4dotelipsis> Elaine Cunningham raped my childhood.
[20:15] <@Graestan> :S
[20:15] <@CavalierOne> Probe, although with Harrar gone, I'm afraid it might get overlooked.
[20:15] <@Graestan> C'est la vie
[20:15] <@GreenTentacle> Say the old folks.
[20:15] <@Gonk|Busy> Abstain
[20:15] <@ChackJadson> Someone will fix it someday
[20:15] <@Graestan> Chack will
[20:15] <@Graestan> in 2013
[20:15] <@Graestan> :P
[20:15] <@ChackJadson> Heh...maybe
[20:15] <@Graestan> Next:
[20:15] <@Graestan>
[20:15] <@Gonk|Busy> Probe
[20:15] <@Graestan> Not comprehensive.
[20:15] <@ChackJadson> Probe
[20:15] <@Graestan> Probe.
[20:15] <@GreenTentacle> Probe.
[20:15] <@Toprawa> Probe
[20:16] <@Graestan> It's in need of repair.
[20:16] <@Culator|Blarg> Shoot.
[20:16] <@The4dotelipsis> Ear lobe.
[20:16] <@CavalierOne> Probe.
[20:16] <@Graestan> Wow, no more articles.
[20:16] <@ChackJadson> That was fast
[20:16] <@Graestan> Okay, on to the painful part
[20:16] <@Toprawa> Can we leave?
[20:17] <@Graestan>
[20:17] <@Graestan> I don't like when people act like this.
[20:17] <@ChackJadson> Yeah. That was rude.
[20:17] <@GreenTentacle> ...
[20:17] <@GreenTentacle> What bit?
[20:18] <@Graestan> "Easy fix; you could've done this one even with no knowledge of the source material. "
[20:18] <@Gonk|Busy> I wouldn't say he was being a full-on jerk, but he should have phrased it more delicately. And delicate phrasing is probably a good thing in areas as contentious as FAN.
[20:18] <@Graestan> "Linked. Another easy, easy fix"
[20:18] <@Toprawa> what I will say in defense of myself, not that I need to, is that I fully understand and apply {{Sofixit}} to my reviewing. If I can't fix something, I make an objection. I'm not going to rewrite an article for someone
[20:19] <@GreenTentacle> I don't think it was rude.
[20:19] <@Graestan> this isn't about this particular article, per se, but I was hoping Ataru would be here because I get the feeling things led up to this snark
[20:19] <@GreenTentacle> At least, I don't think he intended it to be.
[20:19] <@Gonk|Busy> I think he at least intended to be brusque.
[20:20] <@Gonk|Busy> Which shouldn't be encouraged either. It ain't IRC.
[20:20] <@The4dotelipsis> Gotta agree with GT here. I don't have anything to do with it, but from the outside...this all seems a little bit like mountains and molehills to me.
[20:20] <@Toprawa> FWIW, I was pretty insulted by it.
[20:21] <@Toprawa> There was no need for that whatsoever
[20:21] <@Graestan> at any rate, I see a "line" as far as interacting with nominators and objectors, and I hope everyone shares this philosophy and tries not to have double-standards when it comes to their own "lines"
[20:21] <@Toprawa> I didn't instigate anything
[20:21] * @Imperialles (n=Imperial@wikia/Imperialles) Quit (Connection timed out�)
[20:22] <@Graestan> that's all from me; I know you don't all agree with my initial interpretation of it, but if Ataru had shown up I could have tried to get to the bottom of this; I know there's been a lot of related chatter
[20:22] <@The4dotelipsis> Maybe he was offended by having his writing called "bland", or having wording that "just stinks." Doesn't make any supposed rudeness on his part right, know. I think it comes down to the fact that everyone needs to be a little more thick-skinned.
[20:22] <@Toprawa> but he didn't write, 4dot
[20:22] <@Toprawa> it wasn't his article
[20:22] <@ChackJadson> Thrawn did, mostly
[20:22] <@Toprawa> he's taking offense to nothing
[20:23] <@The4dotelipsis> I see.
[20:23] <@GreenTentacle> Regardless, such criticisms of others' writing should also be avoided.
[20:24] <@GreenTentacle> I know at least one person who took offence to an objection to their writing style.
[20:24] <@The4dotelipsis> Indeed. If we're all so worried about being offended, perhaps the objections themselves should be more diplomatic.
[20:24] <@Graestan> I'd agree that Toprawa was close to his own line and possibly over that of others, but he never goes so far as Ataru did there
[20:24] <@Toprawa> I think that's ultimately beside the point.
[20:24] <@Toprawa> if I had directly insulted Ataru's writing, that's one thing
[20:24] <@Toprawa> But this is not the case
[20:26] <@The4dotelipsis> I think the point is that both you and Ataru used strong words, obviously someone, somewhere got upset over it...
[20:26] <@Graestan> no
[20:26] <@The4dotelipsis>'s not really as major as it's being made out to be.
[20:26] <@Graestan> Toprawa didn't go so far as Atarudid
[20:26] <@The4dotelipsis> That's debatable.
[20:27] <@GreenTentacle> I'm with 4dot.
[20:27] <@Gonk|Busy> Delicate phrasing encouraged from nominators, objectors, defenders, interested parties, and anybody else on FAN. People get touchy about writing -- I see this every day IRL.
[20:27] <@Eyrezer> Ataru was the master of making those kind of objections...
[20:27] <@Graestan> it wasn't a personal fight between two people, it was a review and requests for changes
[20:27] <@The4dotelipsis> To me, it's all the same.
[20:27] <@Toprawa> If I took any liberty here, its because I'm reviewing an article written by someone who for my money doesn't even exist. Not that that's defending any "harsh wording" I used, but Ataru took something that wasn't even directed at him and threw it right back in my face, unnecessarily
[20:28] <@Toprawa> if he didn't appreciate what I said, he needs to come and tal kto me directly
[20:28] <@Toprawa> not leave it on the FAN page
[20:28] <@GreenTentacle> Sure.
[20:28] <@GreenTentacle> These things are better resolved on here.
[20:28] <@The4dotelipsis> If Toprawa's objections had been entirely neutral (and "sugarcoated") and Ataru had reacted in the way that he did, damn right I'd be asking some questions.
[20:28] <@Graestan> well, I think everyone is well aware which nominators put up a stink when they get objections, period, let alone lists of them - in short, I'd advise avoiding them and not enabling their behavior
[20:28] <@Graestan> but Ataru stepped in, made it a fight with Toprawa
[20:29] <@Graestan> I don't like this
[20:29] <@Toprawa> so whether anyone's right or wrong, isn't the point - it's just a reminder to leave the bullshit off the FAN page
[20:29] <@The4dotelipsis> Agreed.
[20:29] <@Graestan> indeed
[20:29] <@The4dotelipsis> All brawling should be kept in here, or in PMs or something. I don't care which.
[20:29] <@Graestan> yes
[20:29] <@GreenTentacle> Yeah.
[20:29] <@Graestan> that is exactly what I was looking for
[20:30] <@Graestan> no reason to embarrass people or make a fool of oneself
[20:30] <@Graestan> alright, Chack?
[20:30] <@Gonk|Busy> Now, WHO WANTS MUFFINS?! :DD
[20:30] <@Toprawa> heh
[20:30] <@GreenTentacle> Can I get some blue milk with that?
[20:30] <@ChackJadson> Yeah. Can everyone just try to do more work, and review mor often?
[20:31] <@Culator|Blarg> No.
[20:31] <@Graestan> I'm already on it. ;)
[20:31] <@Gonk|Busy> oh, meeting's not done yet :p
[20:31] <@The4dotelipsis> "You are Oreilly men. You work, men."
[20:31] * @Gonk|Busy promises to review something sometime reasonably soon :)
[20:31] <@ChackJadson> Like I said, that's pretty much it. I don't want to whine about it or anything
[20:32] <@The4dotelipsis> I'll Inq whiles I Wook. And Wook whiles I Inq.
[20:32] <@The4dotelipsis> And like another Sinon I'll take another Troy...
[20:32] <@Graestan> Okay, it's my best friend's birthday, and he and the pizza are here. Good evening.
[20:32] <@ChackJadson> Jsut it'd be nice if we had more than a few Inqs consistently reviewing
[20:32] * @CavalierOne resolves to increase productivity.
[20:32] <@ChackJadson> See ya
[20:32] * Graestan is now known as Grae|Away
[20:32] <@Culator|Blarg> The rest of the interview will be centaur questions.
[20:32] <@Gonk|Busy> I bid you all INQ PARTINGS
