Chart Template

Hi. Is it possible to add the Chart Template here? It would be interesting to have some family trees, maybe a page about it... I have some ideas. Narsha (talk) 19:02, September 7, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, those. I'll contact Dantman first, thanks. If he gives an okay, I'll bring it to the community to approval. Narsha (talk) 19:50, September 7, 2015 (UTC)
Dantman replied. I made this edit to show you what I wish to do, somehow... of course it need to improve. The boxes and lines were made by me using the codes of the Chart Template (in another wikia). I used the characters that are below their respective trees as titles. The trees are more to show in-laws relationships since the infoboxes only show direct blood relationships and lovers. What do you think about it? Is it a good idea or is it better to stop? And, if I start a community discussion about it, what is the place? Clans' talk page or the forum? Thanks for your help and sorry for taking your time. Narsha (talk) 20:48, September 10, 2015 (UTC)
Agree with Dantman. One way it could be implemented is by creating a tree for each non-trivial clan and adding it to each member of the clan (~30 trees I guess). Thats the way most wikis implement the family tree.
But imo, The relations don't really grow very complex in naruto like say in a novel series like ASOIAF. The infobox already lists all the important relations that the reader would be interested in. Its too much work for too little return.--~UltimateSupreme 06:19, September 12, 2015 (UTC)
I see. Thank you, WindStar. Narsha (talk) 17:26, September 12, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Pic

From yesterday's episode.--Omojuze (talk) 04:38, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

Of course. But I'm still hoping for that Naruto online game to be playable outside of China first. I doubt that it means three new games and, if we indeed get at least one, we'll get one of the three, and get a vote, just like people voted on the word "STORM"--Omojuze (talk) 04:43, September 18, 2015 (UTC)
Best guess would be: not enough time to implement the system. They are shooting for a lot: Kaguya on her own should be pretty hard to implement, given her battlefield change ability. Also, wall climbing as well.--Omojuze (talk) 04:48, September 18, 2015 (UTC)
Oh that's what I forgot!! Yes, not it does :D To answer your previous question, not this year.. I'm moving to Denmark next year, off to school, if I make it that is, and even If I won't, I'm still leaving, so... Maybe some time in the future, but I hope I find a way to at least try it out. Also, ignore my grammar please... I'm sick as a horse >.<--Omojuze (talk) 21:24, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

Hey you think it's okay if I try and upload this image from the Naruto spanish wikia of Sakura beating up a bunch of Ten-Tails clones? For some reason, I feel like there's gonna be some kind of issue regarding the image policy if I upload this, so I wanted to see if I could get your okay or not.--SSJ2AJB (talk) 00:57, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

Ok thanks. Also with the DBS Champa Arc, it's actually a bit interesting so far. It's as comedy-based as it is action, like how funny it was to see Beerus and Champa fighting over sweets. --SSJ2AJB (talk) 01:17, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Know what you mean lol. I'm kinda looking forward to this tournament, though I wish Gohan could participate. He kept going from being badass to bookworm since this whole started. --SSJ2AJB (talk) 01:27, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah they really downgraded Gohan's abilities over the years. He was my favorite character too (and still is). At least they finally made him a Super Saiyan 4. --SSJ2AJB (talk) 01:47, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
I think that's with Android #18 absorbed. --SSJ2AJB (talk) 01:58, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
I'd flip out if they start handing out SS4 and SSGSS forms to every Saiyan out there. Though at the same, I'd hope to play as one of them in the video games. --SSJ2AJB (talk) 02:15, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Nah, I kinda lost interest in DBZ games after the Raging Blast series, though I do watch the gameplays of Xenoverse sometimes. I miss gameplay elements like beam struggles or physical clashes, which is pretty much why I still like playing the Budokai/ Budokai Tenkaichi series. What about you? --SSJ2AJB (talk) 02:32, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

Exactly! I've been hoping for a long time they would make a BT4 or Raging Blast 3, especially the latter because just two games in a series just feels empty to me. The current games: yeah they're good, but not enough to top the BT series. --SSJ2AJB (talk) 02:52, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

Though the story mode of Xenoverse is pretty cool. --SSJ2AJB (talk) 02:53, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah lol. I didn't really mind replaying the story over and over (in fact I loved it, since each game had better gameplay than the last). But nice that there was finally some originality in the game instead of in the anime series. --SSJ2AJB (talk) 03:00, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
True that. --SSJ2AJB (talk) 04:01, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Star Wars: The Force

I would say yes, but regrettably I haven't done serious in depth study (yes I said study lol) of Star Wars in quite some time. But yes I am quite a big Star Wars fan who plans to see the Episode 7 tomorrow night (Thursday).--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 02:35, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

After having watched Episode 7, yeah the movie is fine. It is not without minor issues from me but overall it is my new top Star Wars movie (For the record: 7, 3, 5, 4, 6, 1, 2). They did not use George Lucas' script, and I think Abrams rewrote the new script from scratch so overall it's a great film.
My opinion of the Prequels are that they are not nearly as terribad as the overwhelming majority of Star Wars fans believe them to be. That is not to say they are necessarily great as a whole. The dialogue is super weak, the plot is unfocused, and the characters are for the most part forgettable and this relates back to the last point about the plot. But as I stated before, Episode 3 was my favorite Star Wars film until this one, because despite all of that, I came out of the theater having super enjoyed it. It also helps that I was 9 when the Prequels started and 15 when they ended so I was quite literally the target audience for it, as opposed to the 30-40(?) year olds who were the target audience when the films first came out. That being said, I understand a lot of the issues the Prequels, as I mentioned above and they are not unfounded. The Dialogue is super weak, and laughably bad, the plot was super unfocused because a large part of it dealt with "Big Picture" things as opposed to the more character focus of the Original Trilogy. And I am happy to say that Episode 7 does this correctly, a greater focus is on Character development, not Plot Development. There is a difference. Overall, had the Prequels had the exact same plot, but a director who had someone rewrite his script so the characters talked like actual people and had the story revolve around character and not Grand Scope politics game, they would have been fine I wouldn't have to say "I like the Prequels" in hushed voices.
And finally, I loved both Clone Wars series. Ahsoka was a bit grating at first, she seemed like the snarky kid they add to the movie who things they are a way bigger deal than they actually are, but always seem to come out right in the end for like the first season, before adjusting it actually felt like she was the student learning under a master. And the Genndy Tartakovsky Clone Wars cartoon showed General Grevious as he should have been in Episode III and the 3D Clone Wars so that'll always be up there in my book.--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 13:00, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
My favorite parts are really the ones where other people are the focus and not Obi-Wan or Anakin. Ahsoka really started to shine after I think after season 2, so episodes that tended to focus on her were very enjoyable. Episodes that also dealt with the actual war and not some strange Sith plot where also really high on my list as were things involving the Clones. But hands down, the duel between Darth Sidious vs Maul and Savage Opress was the best lightsaber duel in all forms of media.--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 11:53, December 21, 2015 (UTC)

Re: I feel soooo good about my life right now

I fell off Rebels for some reason, but I do still watch it. The change in design doesn't bother me that much, mainly because I know the overall design of the show is different. That being said, I highly doubt the show will end with them dying. Maybe they just get assigned to some backass part of the galaxy, but death? Doubtful.--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 11:54, February 20, 2016 (UTC)

I actually fell off of the comics during Vader Down. Not because it was bad, I thought it was very very good. But work got bad I fell off all of my comic books.

No but I did just purchase Episode 7 so I'm watching that lol.--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 19:16, April 24, 2016 (UTC)
Oh no, JJ Abrams admitted that they basically redid Episode 4 so to "get the fans back with something familiar". Personally I think it was a cop-out. It was the ultimate admittance that they were banking the entirety of the new trilogy on nostalgia. That said, the result was still the best Star Wars movie they've made (My order is now 7, 3, 5, 6, 5, 4, 1, 2) but it still leaves a sour taste in my mouth. However Rogue One has me hopeful that they can write good interesting stories without just being a rehash of a original trilogy film.--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 11:21, April 26, 2016 (UTC)
We won't know until it's out but I'm going to assume way after, as Rebels takes place I think at least 4 or so years before A New Hope while Rogue One takes place at most weeks before A New Hope. Also I really hope they don't try to Michael Jackson and Tupac Tarkin. Just get the guy who played him in Episode III. That guy was fine.--TheUltimate3 Akimichi Symbol (talk) 23:04, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

re: admin/sysop

Interestingly, when I first started using Wikia long ago, I always used the term "admin" and never sysop. Over the years though, my opinion changed, primarily because of the fact that I'd been administrating internet forums alongside the odd Wikia contribution: due to the differences between the admin of a wiki and the admin of a forum, I began to adopt the technical (and more accurate) word "sysop" for those who had the sysop flag on a wiki (simply because the user group at the core code level of MediaWiki calls it "sysop", not admin, though the front end text can be changed) and adopted "admin" exclusively for use on non-wiki sites. This is because an admin on a forum has a lot of control over the site that a sysop on a wiki does not. Below I go into detail about two main reasons why I do this.

The main reason for my decision to use the word "sysop" is mainly because it's generally accepted that a hierarchy exists on an internet forum, because you "earn your way" to becoming a moderator or administrator of a forum and it is MUCH harder to revert rogue moderator actions (you can do it, but there is no "quick way" like you can with wiki edits). On forums, there are no "bots" and there's no way to automate the reversion of rogue moderator actions, which means other moderators and administrators must manually look through the moderator logs and go through every single action and revert them, which is VERY time consuming: in a wiki environment, a user need only set up a bot (giving it the bot flag) and revert the bad contributions, without anyone noticing that anything happened.

The other main reason for my decision is that rights on a wiki are less dangerous than they are in a forum environment. If I were to give someone the sysop flag on a wiki, then it's easy for me to take that way quickly or even to revert bad edits they've made (even easier if they vandalise community JS due to the JS Review Tool blocking any attempts to add malicious code there). But in a forum environment, it is much harder to deal with rogue administrators, as a rogue admin with the wrong administrator permissions set on their account for the forum's Admin Control Panel, can cause a LOT of damage (an example of something that a rogue forum admin could do is change the URL and cookie settings, essentially making the whole forum unusable to every forum member without a database backup, which will lose posts if the backup is not recent). A rogue sysop on a wiki doesn't have anywhere close to this level of access to harm a wiki, because MediaWiki has no "admin control panel" to automate the changes, so unless they've got FTP or cPanel access to the localsettings.php file, they cannot harm the wiki in the way that a rogue forum admin could, making a sysop's bad actions simpler to revert.

I hope this explains everything about why I use sysop on a wiki and not the word admin. Feel free to post on my talkpage if you have further queries or questions! :D --SuperSajuuk (talk) 20:51, April 1, 2016 (UTC)

Actually some wiki's on Wikia do allow bureaucrats to grant bot flag (but it's extremely rare, the only known case I know of is the Runescape Wiki). The default action is to allow bureaucrats to remove the bot flag (but not grant) from bad bots, but not many wiki's have this (the wiki's which don't either requested that feature to be removed, or Wikia Staff took it away due to abuse, or the wiki is bugged).
You would be correct in saying that Wikia Staff are the administrators (in essence like a forum admin) of the service. While forum admins can each be limited in what they can do (through admin perms, which limits what features they've got access to (most admins tend to just have forums, users and groups rights, only the "super admins" tend to have every other feature), limiting abuse and rogue admins breaking the site), Wikia Staff have essentially full control of every wiki.
I think the reason a lot of users tend to call the sysops "admins" is because either they don't understand that sysops don't actually have full access to things, or because Wikia Staff repeatedly call them "admins" so that Staff don't need to get involved when a sysop is doing things that aren't in the best interests of the wiki. Both are just as bad as each other and does not help when you try to explain that a sysop is just a regular user with some extra buttons and doesn't have a lot of additional access: whereas an admin on a forum could quite easily do what they want without anyone noticing (the only users who would notice if an admin is abusing their position is if another admin with the right access can view the admin and mod logs, which non-admins cannot view: different on a wiki where the community can see everything as it's publically logged). --SuperSajuuk (talk) 21:26, April 1, 2016 (UTC)
I realised that I failed to mention one difference between admins and sysops. When a sysop "blocks" a user from the wiki, all they do is revoke editing abilities, but the user can still read everything (so they can still watch on and laugh when a wiki is going downhill): but a "ban" enacted by a forum moderator revokes "everything" (you can't even view the site and some forums even remove the ability to log out to prevent the user socking the ban, though the level of what is revoked by the ban is customisable by forum administrators).
Don't worry about forgetting, it's easy to do when so many wiki's are just the same generic setup with limited customisation. :p --SuperSajuuk (talk) 21:33, April 1, 2016 (UTC)
Yep, you are completely correct. A lot of terminology that is used on "forums" are usually confused on a wiki, so when someone "blocks" you on a wiki, people take it the wrong way and think it's more harsh than it really is, when in reality, a block on a wiki is just saying "stop editing, but read the wiki anyway". On a forum, it's a "we don't want you back here and we don't want you reading anything we post, piss off" type notice :p --SuperSajuuk (talk) 21:38, April 1, 2016 (UTC)
I agree, though the implementations that exist for some forum software (thinking vBulletin 3.x here) aren't that great and they don't always work since clearing cookies causes you to get logged out anyway (the only method that would work is to have a system where the notice appears regardless of the user being logged in or not, ie not setting a cookie, which is difficult to pull off without such things being intercepted with an adblocker).
The only way it could be done is if Wikia made every wiki use it's own user database, rather than an SSO hacky solution so that one account works everywhere (and in which causes blocks to be completely pointless in general). --SuperSajuuk (talk) 21:54, April 1, 2016 (UTC)
I did see that discussion come up a lot of times on Central Wiki (and even on the Wikia Community discord server), but luckily for me, I don't see it since ad blocker is necessary for me to actually use the Internet with my 3mbps connection :p (though despite that, I absolutely abhor ads being placed in the middle of content, it's just dumb as that isn't what content is for).

Re: Curious

Chapter 490, when Naruto, Fukasaku, Gamamaru, and Gerotora are talking about Naruto using the Nine-Tails' chakra. When they talk about the hatred latching onto Naruto, there's a panel of Version 1 jinchuriki form Naruto, you can count five tails. I don't know if this was changed in the volume release, but I don't think it was. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:32, April 21, 2016 (UTC)

I could of sworn that you said not long ago you hadn't read OnePiece yet, or did you pick it up recently? --Sarutobii2 (talk) 02:30, July 1, 2016 (UTC)
Well that escalated lmao. I did somewhat the same, having watched some of OP as a kid, then i randomly started reading the manga when the Impel Down arc began, and i've been reading it weekly ever since. It's a nice difference from the Naruto manga, but the same can't be said about the OP anime, which for the most part is horrible ever since its nearly caught up with the manga. My only annoyance about the manga is that Oda (the author) is constantly taking breaks. --Sarutobii2 (talk) 07:27, July 1, 2016 (UTC)
It's not just the OP filler, its the canon eps as well. They use to cover like 2-4 chapters each ep, but the anime these days only ever does like 1 chapter of content max and drags it out as much as possible. 100% agree with OP having great character development, and the focus is well divided on a multitude of characters aside from the main characters. But i think what i love more in OP than in Naruto, is the mystery. All Naruto had was who's under Tobi's mask, is Minato Naruto's father and the Sage of Six Paths, as opposed to OP having the void century, poneglyphs, the will of D, devil fruit's etc etc. --Sarutobii2 (talk) 09:29, July 1, 2016 (UTC)
Op is defo gonna have 1000 chapters. According to one of its editors, the time skip (ch597) was half way through the story and as of ch794, the story is around 70% complete. I haven't seen/remember any plot holes in OP aside from Mr. 3 floating on water at 1 point. The set up for things is crazy in OP. Like Jinbe's character and Sanji birthplace were established early on in the story, and hundreds of chapters later it comes to light. Crazy stuff ay. --Sarutobii2 (talk) 18:57, July 2, 2016 (UTC)

But it's true, I don't know why Jizo got sysopped in the first place given his relative non-existence on the wiki as a whole, he barely edits the main wiki and the most he does in the forums is randomly close a thread once a month...
You and Saru are more active than him, even before you were all sysopped. And now you've been sysopped... --Sajuuk 10:24, July 21, 2016 (UTC)

Well I'd say you were more active than Jizo has ever been. ;)
Of course, I suspected you were resigning because of having too many wiki's to manage.

Haha, editing on steroids. That's a new phrase for intensive editing. But I agree: even I don't even do "heavy editing" anymore, just content to do the odd revert/minor edit that nobody else plans on doing themselves.
It's ok about chat, I understand. Only thing I was going to ask is your thoughts on whether the wiki should employ the use of the Content Moderator flag for some users. --Sajuuk 11:00, July 21, 2016 (UTC)

Sasuke

actually the part that is extraneous is the parts about Sasuke's relationship with Sakura and Itachi in his personality section. i see no problem with expounding on his motivations. however, i kind of left those sections because i didn't want to overwrite someone's hard work. -- Lalalalaigothis (talk) 03:19, July 22, 2016 (UTC)

I didnt think this was a corrupt system, but apparently it is. --Lalalalaigothis (talk) 16:59, July 22, 2016 (UTC)
So tell me WindStar, do you disagree that giving a whole paragraph on a relationship does not pertain to the personality section? You never answered. A counterproductive edit, that adds citations and gives more details about Sasuke's actual personality? You know, his character, rather than just actions? Look son, you may be sysop but that doesn't mean you should abuse your powers. Just because someone's writing is a little more detailed does not mean that it isn't a good edit; in fact it takes the time to give a measured view of both strengths and weaknesses. Now you can get cute and write 'counterproductive edit' or you can show me where the lie is.
You still didn't answer me. How is an entire paragraph dedicated to Itachi and Sakura's relationship in Sasuke's personality 'summarizing and shortening content.'??
I don't know if you noticed, but I actually shortened certain areas and added more information in areas that were not fully explained. Information that pertains to an individuals' motivations are certainly relevant . This is a way to turn away new editors, honestly. The idea that the content is perfect as is and can't be improved upon, or only in minor ways. I am seriously disappointed as a first time user. Now I didn't know about the talk thing, I can look into that, but I'm talking to you now because you were the first one and last one on the page. Obviously I was just excited to contribute; in fact I put a couple hours worth of work into trying to flesh out that entire section. But if the only way you determine quality of content is brevity, instead of actual content and a true assessment of the character, well, that's sad. --Lalalalaigothis (talk) 18:13, July 22, 2016 (UTC)
Hello. You know I'm not going to give up. So you might as well speak. In fact, why don't you do your job as an administrator and go to the page you suggested I go to, and talk to me there.
Finally, let the record state that I never 'restored' my edits. Each and every single one of my edits was adjusted, and not the same as before. I'm taking this to a different administrator if need be. --Lalalalaigothis (talk) 18:13, July 22, 2016 (UTC)
BTW, I take back what I said about the corrupt system or whatever. You seem to be fair enough as well. It just really seemed to me like you were using your powers to keep everything the same, locking the page w.o explanation, which is not the case. I actually missed the "warring" part of the "counter productive edit" message. Also, I updated the talk page. Lalalalaigothis (talk) 00:57, July 24, 2016 (UTC)
Hey, just really briefly:
You make a good effort (Thank You!), but you also contradict yourself. You claim that the "nature of the wiki" is editing, yet you claim from the beginning that "the article explains personality just fine," meaning what exactly? That it's "just fine" so it shouldn't be touched? HOWEVER, the thing about multiple users, community not approving it, etc., 3 times/12 hours, I understand. British English, check.
Can I just ask, point blank - do you really think:
"Sasuke first met Sakura Haruno when they were children in the Academy, where his good looks caused her to become infatuated with him, which later grew into love. On his part, Sasuke was aware Sakura had feelings for him, but he showed no interest in her and considered her to be annoying. After they became team-mates, they began to interact more and acknowledge each other's strengths and weaknesses, causing Sasuke to think of her as someone he needs to protect. Despite feeling grateful of how much she is willing to do to make him happy, he still abandons the prospect of being with her to pursue revenge and defect Konoha."
is more relevant to Sasuke's nature than Sasuke's dream to protect people in the police force?
Also, the whole "incorrect citation" (Naruto 230, Page 7) thing? Did you look at the page? Kishimoto mentions so early on that Sasuke believes his left arm is as an instrument to climb into darkness. His chidori arm. That he lost. It's representative. I thought that was interesting... means Sasuke opting not to have his left arm replaced is probably no coincidence. I think Sasuke mentioned it directly in Shinden, but I'm still looking. What say you?
Question: As an admin, can you make judgement calls? i.e., when reverting becomes spiteful? Or are you just not about that around here? Lalalalaigothis (talk) 20:35, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Rasengan

I don't mind mentioning that he used it and it looks alike and for all intents and purposes it was the Rasengan, but I don't think he should be listed as a user (the same way that Hagoromo and Indro "used" Chidori apparently?

Can you explain to me how mocking someone's argument is the same as insulting said person? Why am I getting a warning when I was mostly rebutting 8Gates' claims? All was fine until he came in and the first thing he did was insult everyone who agreed that Naruto and Sasuke would easily beat the four Hokages. Throughout the rest of the thread 8Gates continued to insult me and the time I mocked his arguments is when you came in and deemed that I was also making insults? What? I was only pointing out the flaws in his arguments and logic, how he was taking things out-of-context, how immature he was being, and how he was being a bit of a hypocrite.

Re: Curious

All of them, from the "Lost Adventures" issues, to the non-canon and chibi ones, to the proper graphic novel trilogies. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 03:12, July 23, 2016 (UTC)

Probably The Search. It finally revealed what happened to Ursa. It didn't do wonders for her character though. The copious amounts of Crazula, flashback Ozai, the fact they remembered Koh exists, and one of the most conceptually interesting spirits in the franchise pushed it to the top. Something I wish the graphic novels did a bit more is flesh out characters that didn't get much time on the show. I would love a White Lotus focused comic. Jeong-Jeong was way too interesting for the minuscule amount of screentime he had. When the Korra comics start being a thing, I would also appreciate more Red Lotus material. The four had cool abilities, but other than Zaheer, none of them had much character. Seeing them all coming together and developing their camaraderie would be interesting. They could finish that prequel with them being incarcerated, since they did want flashback of their kidnap attempt of child Korra in Book Three. Maybe even revisit the still at large Red Lotus agents. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 04:15, July 23, 2016 (UTC)
Smoke and Shadow had an interesting set up, but had quite some faults in execution. My tolerance to shipping is proportional to its quality, and the Zuko/Mai/Kei Lo triangle took up more space it had any right. The reveal of Azula being behind the Kemurikage also fell flat to me. Who were her henchwomen? Where did they come from? How did they meet? How does Azula suddenly know how to redirect lightning? How can Zuko bend dragon multi-colored fire? What is special about that fire? There was too little to no explanation for any that. What Ukano did and did not know also was confusing. The trilogy opened with him thinking the Kemurikage were actually spirits, but when we learn it was Azula, he already seemed to know that. I also strongly disliked what that trilogy did to the timeline. It takes quite a bit of interpretation for what was shown there not to completely mess up the established timeline and Fire Nation history. In Smoke and Shadow, the first Fire Lord was established as the one who united the Fire Islands after defeating war lords, and when Aang wonders why the Avatar of that time didn't do anything against the war lords, Zuko figures this happened before the Avatar came to me. None of that makes sense. The four nations only came to be after Wan became Raava's Avatar, after people stopped living in the lion turtle cities and spread through the world again as the spirits no longer roamed the world. Also, the Fire Lord first branched off the Fire Sages. Long in the past, the Fire Nation was a theocracy similar to the Air Nomads, and they were led by the Fire Sages, they themselves originating from a branch of the Bhanti Tribe, the Fire Sage-like people who appeared in the Beginnings episodes in Book Two Spirits in the island Korra washed up on. Their leader was the called the Fire Lord because of his deep spiritual connection to fire. The Fire Nation royal family began when a Fire Lord split from the sages, starting a monarchy. The only way any of Smoke and Shadow makes sense is if you assume the first monarchy collapsed before the rise of the Sun Warriors, whose culture is known to have influenced the Fire Sages, and from the Fire Sages, the Fire Lord title resurfaced and eventually led to a monarchy again. The Avatar's absence during the unification era of the Fire Nation can be explained by him or her simply having yet to learn they're the Avatar, depending on how long the unification wars, or simply being occupied with other conflicts in other parts of the world. Zuko's assumption could simply be wrong. The lack of firebending during the Kemurikage era makes no sense, as life outside the lion turtles only happened Wan, and people used bending to fight wars in his time. Fire Nation history from Smoke and Shadow can work, but I shouldn't have to go through so many hoops and assumptions to make it work. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 19:26, July 23, 2016 (UTC)
You see, despite the lack of an explicit explanation for Azula's blue fire, that looks like a natural and logical progression. Fire burning blue is an indication of higher temperature, so Azula's "I have to be the perfect, I have to be the best" mentality would push her enough for her fire to reflect that. The fact other master firebenders don't display that, like Ozai, Iroh, or Jeong-Jeong, also leads me to believe it's a personality thing. Iroh is powerful, but from all we've seen to him, the focus of his firebending is something like "use only as much power as necessary". He and Azula have focus on skill, but his doesn't go into intensity. Ozai on the other hand, thinks so highly of himself that he would not see himself as having to be better, thus pushing himself to the point of blue flames. Jeong-Jeong's entire restraint philosophy goes completely against the idea of burning hotter. I'd go as far as saying they blue fire is something that firebenders of a certain mastery can achieve, but don't practice because it's generally not worth it for usual firebending applications. For dragon fire, I have no idea. I can't think of any reason why dragon fire would be so colorful. It's also worth noting that not all dragon fire looks like a rainbow, so it's definitely something they deliberately do on purpose. What different effect rainbow fire could have and why Zuko can do it escapes me. My guess would be something related to spirituality, as all possible reasons I can think for differently colored fire involve science, but that wouldn't explain the lack of rainbow fire from other spiritually inclined firebenders, like Iroh, or past Avatars.
I liked The Promise. It showed some of the growing pains of what would be Republic City, though I wish we would still get some more mentions of that in the other trilogies. We do see mentions, but all we see is the progress, like one conflict was all it took to make a well-oiled machine. I also enjoyed Ozai. Most of his characterization in the comic was indirect, made by how other characters related to him. In this trilogy and in the other trilogies he appears, we get to see him. At the start of The Promise, even with no bending and behind bars, he still held some sway over Zuko. I didn't like or dislike the Toph plot or the Air Acolyte plot in The Promise. To me, though they did tie into the main plot in the end, there were most just there. The Rift was mostly neutral to me. What I liked and what I didn't liked sort of evened out. I liked that the plot had an anchor in Yangchen. Of the four Avatars that preceded Aang, she was the one that picked my interest the most, and the fact there was no side story about her life in that Escape the Spirit World game that bridged Books Two and Three only made me appreciate her more. Stuff like this is why I hated that Bryke had Korra lose her connection to past Avatars, with the flimsiest of excuses: she didn't use it much. Having the ability to do so is still important, and maybe future Avatars will not be so bone-headed as Korra and want to make use of the connection. This was equivalent of burning Wan Shi Tong's library in terms of wasting valuable resources. The only thing that kept me going was being able to develop a head-canon in which that connection can be restored, based only on stuff from canon. On the other hand, the Aang and Toph conflict about the factory was boring to me. The majority of it felt very forced to me, and most of it could have been avoided if they had bothered talking it out. Other than Toph reconnecting with her father, everything about the factory was boring. Satoru irritated me. Something that started in The Rift also feels unnecessarily vague and complex is timeline placement. The new spirit focused festival happened three months later. Then Smoke and Shadow came along, and a significant portion of part one happened between the group coming back from Hira'a to mainland Fire Nation after the end of The Search and the beginning of The Rift. Now, North and South will begin sometime in the middle of Smoke and Shadow part two after Katara and Sokka leave Aang, and later on he will join them. And somewhere in the middle of all that, there's still the spirit festival from the end of The Rift. At the Avatar wiki, trying to piece this all together chronologically is not fun.

Re: Image and Revert Policies

For your information, 4th Six Paths replaced the original image without good reason, and with image that didn't improve article at all, so I mearly restored the original image. Also, 4th Six Paths, SuperSajuuk and Sarutobii2 changed the image of Indra's infobox without proper discussion, so if anyone should be reminded of the use of talk pages, it would be them. --JouXIII (talk) 00:37, July 25, 2016 (UTC)

sigh Fair enough, I guess... I'm just tired of people trying to put unnecessary changes in the articles. I have nothing against change itself, just unnecessary and stupid ones, and change of Indra's infobox image is very unnecessary. --JouXIII (talk) 01:09, July 25, 2016 (UTC)

Re:Indra

I'm just trying to make this clear, when I uploaded this file and put it on the Indra infobox I was trying to see if anybody would be okay with, but when JouXIII said that it was no good and took it off I didn't want to get into a big argument and agreed with him/her. But then suddenly other users liked the image and there was a big edit war (which wasn't my intention). Then I found a better image showing Indra without his Sharingan activated and since the wiki doesn't show the Uchiha memebers with there Sharingan activated I thought I put it on the infobox. But then JouXII gave a poor reason saying that it was "fugly" and that "it doesn't improve article at all". I'm okay with my image being taken off ONLY if there is a good reason.--Rinnegan 4th Six Paths (talk) 02:15, July 25, 2016 (UTC)

As for what you just said I'll take that into consideration.--Rinnegan 4th Six Paths (talk) 02:16, July 25, 2016 (UTC)

Edit wars

Just so you know, JouXIII has a long history here of persistently edit warring and doing whatever he wants, not to mention persistently insulting other people's opinions in some veiled way to get his way. Apparently, me opposing his image on the talkpage means I have "something against Indra" or that I "don't care about the series", which is pretty funny.

In a number of instances, his edit summaries and attitude to editors are very similar to those displayed by Omojuze (and later under his new account of BerserkerPhantom). The edit warring is insane, because despite whatever we say, Jou just continues to restore his own edits, insulting users in the process through edit summaries. I don't know how this can be curbed without protecting pages he engages in disputes over or by blocking him for a time and getting him to learn to use article talkpages to deal with disputes. The former is not something that would really solve anything, other than harming the wiki as a whole, by preventing legitimate contributions. :/

Just thought you should know this, in case you weren't aware of the user's history. --Sajuuk 12:29, July 25, 2016 (UTC)

Aye and I'm also of the opinion that page protections aren't always a way of solving problems, they're only a temporary "stop editing this page and discuss", but given how so few people are interested in using talkpages, page protection has become pretty pointless. --Sajuuk 15:54, July 25, 2016 (UTC)
