"captcha sucks! can it be turned off for idgames links?"[edit]

Yes, there is a way to make exceptions, MediaWiki:Captcha-addurl-whitelist.  I know nothing about regexps though — please contact an active admin who is a coder (i.e. most of them).    Ryan W 14:51, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Polyobject page[edit]

Some context on my messages in the changelog on this article. There was a recent thread on Doomworld Forums that went on for about 10 pages with an argument over licensing of source ports during which ZDaemon staff were brought to task for not sharing a fix - or even the problem itself - in Eternity's polyobject implementation. Earlier around August, I had made a request to them on the altdeath forums for this information which went unanswered - or so I thought.

Apparently instead of coming to me in person and sharing that information, they came here and defaced the Polyobject article with what amounts to an ad hominem attack against me and the port I work on. The edit made to this article not only stripped me of credit for part of the approach used in ZDoom - for which even the ZDoom source code gives me proper credit - but also used non-encyclopedic mocking tone in describing what was a minor oversight in my approach to fragment sorting.

I have already independently discovered and fixed the bug in question so none of that information belongs there any longer. However, I consider the edit that was made by this anonymous user to be totally inappropriate and an attack on the integrity of the wiki. We don't need such childish vindictive behavior here and I think and hope you'd agree. So what I said isn't meant to be a threat against registered, responsible, and helpful users like yourself in any way. Thanks for your further improvements to the article; I have reviewed them to be at the same quality level. --Quasar 17:36, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

I understand that you're angry at them for removing credit for your work from the article and being arrogant about their polyobject implementation.
  • I can't see the mocking tone here. Admittedly I don't know English well enough to know how subtle tone variations is represented in writing.
  • Threatening bans four months after an apparently one-off edit itself looks vindictive.
