Have something to say?

If you have something to say, please click here (or use the [+] tab at the top of the page between "edit" and "history") to add a new section in order to keep the page more organized (unless, of course, you're commenting on a topic already being discussed).

Please also remember to sign your post by using the signature button at the top of the editing box (it's the second button from the right, between the red "no" circle and the horizontal line) or by typing --~~~~ at the end of your entry. Thanks!

Your comments

Regarding the Burroughs River Page

I think we should keep this page though possibly revert it back to the original page originally made by Dave. The page itself serves no more use other than a history to the development of the three new furoma locations. Also, we all love a little history of MH don't we? We're still trying to find out who Ronza is after all =p

  • Since the articles for referenced locations are causing the same problem as crafted cheeses, I'm thinking we could use the same solution and just put them all into a single article. I've made an example in my sandbox after going through every location/loot/mouse description and only selecting the capitalized references. The exclusions include Ronza's homeland, Zugzwang's tower, the eastern island and the northern forest of Furoma. Revengeance 12:47, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

An addition to the FAQ

Based on the fact that Dave Vanderburg himself has said that switching traps/bases will not affect luck in catching mice (according to his revision history of Master of the Cheese Belt Mouse), would it be worth mentioning that in the FAQ? It's (unfortunately) a REALLY widely-held belief that changing traps will make it easier to catch things, and it might sway people against it if we mentioned it. --Kirbix 03:27, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Go for it.  :-) -- B.Rossow talkcontr 07:37, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
    • I actually feel that information would better go in the myth pages (could go in the FAQ as well) along side the cheddar banking myth.AzureOwl 09:06, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Spanish Pages

That's good you're not afraid to tell me. I am semi-fluent in Spanish though I have not needed to speak it in a long time so if there is someone who is more fluent, I will be glad to let him edit the pages and thanks for your comments. I always enjoy them and even though I don't always agree with them at first I Always see your point after a while.--Justin.craig09 20:07, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the quick reply! Didn't mean anything personal -- acting more as a messenger as I'm FAR from fluent in Spanish (unless you need someone to count to ten -- then I'm your guy!) and wouldn't know if they were even close to correct or not. -- B.Rossow talkcontr 20:15, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
    • Its okay. I didn't take any offense. I haven't used my Spanish in years and it has depleted quite a bit. I may do a few edits here and there but I will make them few and far between. Oh and by the way, are there any special projects you would like me to work on? I will make sure I get them approved by you before I change anything big.--Justin.craig09 20:28, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
      • I don't have anything specific in mind. I'm spending more time lately on a different wiki I'm getting off the ground (unrelated to MH). Please don't think you need to get anything approved by me -- I'm no more in charge around here than you or anyone else except the developers who own the site. I just happen to have strong opinions on how things should be done. If you have something to work on, go for it! If it's a big change, I'd suggest doing it in your sandbox and then posting a note on the relevant talk page for affected article(s) before making sweeping changes, but that's up to you. Gotta run.... -- B.Rossow talkcontr 20:51, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

control freak?

This is the second time I've modified a page in order to improve it, and the second time I've had my changes rolled back so that you can post it again with some other changes of your own. Do you always modify a page after someone else has? Are you a control freak who always has to have the last word? If that's so, then just set up your own page and don't make it a wiki! I can tell you that I will never bother trying to help again!!!!!
