Alright, who's the culprit?

STOP MOVING THE SOUNDTRACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE PAGE.
It looks awful. It breaks up the content, it makes it look like the end of the page, and is much less important then the gameplay and character sections which you seem so intent on hiding. Really, it makes no sense to have it there. SO QUIT IT.

wait what?

Someone keeps reorganizing the page layout so that the soundtrack breaks up the characters and gameplay sections. Which, I agree with BoG, would look really, really stupid.

Wow, that sucks. There's no way for the moderator to tell who is doing what when it comes to editing?

Well, I didn't do it. But, it is annoying, agreed.

However, besides the soundtrack format change, the page is very nice. Kudos to whoever did it. A lot of information and the like. I like it. Still, keep it like it is now. The soundtrack section is where it belongs.

Who thinks that that is a good idea?

Somebody should stop being a dum-dum.

I keep moving the soundtrack, but the rest of the page I'd say is thanks to StarFoxA. I had done a whole bunch, but somebody got rid of it all, and the only logical explanation is the user with 2,000+ points on the page.

The sooner a versioning system gets implemented, the better.

I agree with my fellow Moderator here that dicking around with the Wiki will only end badly for the culprit. Having a soundtrack list in the middle of what is a pretty substantial amount of information on this particular page just breaks it up and makes the layout of the page look badly organised. Soundtracks are best left to the bottom or end of an article, not smack bang in the middle.

Also to whoever did write that article up, kudos, thats one long and informative article.

A separate page on wikis for soundtrack listings would be good, I think.

AND HE STRIKES AGAIN.

Ok, really , who is it? STOP. I know just how I'll draw you out of your cave.

I think you telling whoever not to do it brought them back out of hiding. :P

Whoever it is, I thank them. They got me to read the GB Final Fantasy VI page which in turn makes me wanna play Final Fantasy VI.

I hope to do it again. They'll reveal themselves.
Also, Red, thank StarFoxA, who wrote that entire thing. Yes, the rest of us have points, but I think he scrapped all of our work for the better.

Sorry, that was me. I thought that it was better under the "development" section than in its own section. But now I see it your way.

Awesome! Jedi Mind tricks = success!

Now I have to go switch it again. The soundtrack is important! Stop fucking with it!

I can only imagine StarFox sitting there wondering just who the hell keeps rearranging it his stuff!  


StarFox "what the hell, why did someone move the soundtracks, i'll have to fix that"

BoG  "who did that?! now i have to fix it again"
rinse & repeat

priceless

+5 for the jedi mind trick BoG, good work

It's not me.  I can't edit pages.   >.<

We need an edit history functionality on wiki pages. There is one for guides. Why not use it with the Wiki page as well. I trust our dear moderators will tell Snide/Coonce/Ethan about this.

They're well aware of the need for change tracking on the wiki, but I don't think that's on their current "to do" list.

The guide edit history doesn't even work the way it should. You can't save or publish a previous version of a guide; and you can't even look at previous versions unless you're the main editor of the guide.
So if I screw something up on the image moderation guide, I have to rely on jlrm01 to restore the previous version of the guide. If he can.
