Hi Cashmcat, I think we need to talk. I noticed that most of your comments of the wiki have been very disrespectful to other users. This is supposed to be a safe place where people can collaborate and share their views. It seems that you are constantly putting other people down and disregarding their opinions. (like here,here, and here to name a few). It's 100% okay for you to have your own views as well, but you cannot just call other people out and make it sound like they are incompetent for suggesting something. This behavior is really unacceptable on the wiki. I totally understand that sometimes people say things that seem illogical/don't make sense and you think you are (and likely are) right. But that does not give you the right to shoot other people down. A lot the users on here are very young, from different countries, and sometimes don't even know Ariana that well. I know it's hard to not say anything back to them when you are so knowledgeable about Ariana, but if what you are going to say doesn't really add anything and is just to prove that you are right & they are wrong..... you should really just ignore it. Besides, comments are not the main point of this wiki; it's one thing to get in a debate with someone over an article, but it's another thing to get in a fight over a tiny comment. And aside from all of this, you have been using inappropriate language A LOT, and that is also not allowed.
Anyway, I'm not trying to be mean or sound angry, I just really want this wiki to be a nice place for everyone, and your behavior has been harming that. This is a warning, so if you continue to act this way, I may have to resort to blocking you.
Hi Divine618, I think you're being a bit oversensitive. I'm genuinely unsure if you know the difference between a challenge to an opinion and directing personal insults.
First "testament" - literally arguing against someone's reasoning is "disregarding their opinions" and "putting other people down". Okay. Did I ever say "your opinion is irrelevant" or "you're stupid"? No, I was challenging his / her speculation and explaining why it was unreasonable. It's an opinion board. Expect to have your opinion argued against, expect to be wrong sometimes. Sorry if I'm not all cutesy and cupcake-y.
Second "testament" - again, oversensitive? Yes I created a theoretical instance
Third "testament" - literally I asked how they thought it sounded like LMH? It wasn't rhetorical, I was genuinely curious to what similarities he / she found between the two songs.
That doesn't make sense. I'm completely allowed to argue against people and prove things wrong??? They are a pretty big aspect of the wiki you know (probably one of the biggest)...it's the primary form of interaction, it's a place to discuss / dismiss rumors, share opinions, argue against speculations, etc. like wyd fam? Should we not try to clarify rumors and confirm incorrect speculations??? "A fight over a tiny comment"??? When did that ever happen. lol I wanna see the receipts. again I think you're confused, interpreting a refute as a giant fight. Okay I didn't know this was a kiddie website, I will refrain from using ~bad words~. At least is 'lmao' too "inappropriate" as well? In all seriousness am I allowed to say that or no?
Anyway, I'm not trying to be mean or sound angry, I just really want to discuss speculations? This is a place open to discussion. Again, in the first link the poster clearly stated that it was a supposition. That person made a discussion thread for the topic, which clearly implies that it's open to discussion.
block me if you want but it'll be really immature of you if you do lol.
I think you misunderstood what I'm saying. It's fine for you to disagree with people and talk about different rumors/speculation. What I have a problem with is the way you say it. Instead of saying, "I think that's kind of unlikely" you said, "lmao it doesn't work like that. At all." Do you not see the difference? It's all about respect. I'm not saying you have to kiss their butt, I'm saying you shouldn't be rude. The "third" link I showed, you said "how the hell does this sound like LMH". If you actually wanted the user to explain the differences, you shouldn't have phrased the question like that. Even this whole discussion, you're trying to undermine me by copying how I typed my first comment (ex: Hi Divine618; Anyway, I'm not trying to be mean or sound angry,). I know you're not personally calling people out but there is still a level of disrespect present. There's more than one way have that. I think discussion is great I just want you to go about it the right way. I'm trying to help.
And yes, using "bad words" on here is against the rules. There's no discussion on that. There are lots of young kids (a large percentage of Ariana's fan base), and it's honestly not necessary to use it. Plus, if you have inappropriate language, you can be denied certain things like having your wiki promoted. There's no need to insult us by calling this a "kiddie website." It is a big deal.
"I think", "that's kind of", etc. 💀 really unsure phrases. Again, that's extremely soft timid wording lol do you actually hear people ever say that casually? I'm firm with my opinions :/ lol but if y'all want me to soften everything and otherwise block me then sure. Well you edited my comment 💀 how am I supposed to remember that without knowing you changed my comment before 💀💀
Undermine? 💀 You're jumping to conclusions, I literally just phrased a sentence or two like yours. Ridicule isn't inherent with that (and besides I actually meant what I said even if it was a copying of your phrasing)
Disrespect? There isn't a "right" way to discuss, I think that's kind of self-righteous.
Didn't know that. Ok. You didn't answer the first time I'm asking again, is "lmao" also classified as bad / inappropriate. No teenagers comprise most of Ariana's fans. Really? Kiddie isn't derogatory, you're jumping to conclusions again.
You're right, there isn't one "correct" way to have a discussion. But there does need to be respect, always. I hope we can agree that's important. You can get the same point across, politely, without having to soften your words and be meek about it. That's all I'm trying to say. I want you to still contribute to the wiki and get in discussions, just have a different mindset. I'm not going to block you if you just clean up the language and have a tiny bit more consideration for all people editing here. And "lmao" isn't technically a bad word, but I would prefer if you didn't use it.
