Fall of Winterfell thread

Allen Knott,

You have the full right to disagree, criticize and argue with other users and administrators, but only in civilized manner.

You do not have the right to offend other users, by declaring that part of an artcile "needs to reword, because it contained opinions of the editor who wrote it, and not based totally on the books" - this is rude, improper and unacceptable behavior. It is your opinion, not a solid proof fact.

You may re-open the thread by writing "I disagree with the passage that says X, because in my opinion...", specify your reasons, and invite others to join the thread - without insults, but with manners and courtesy, even if you think the other party is totally wrong and you are right.

Be warned: any more offensive writing like you did will result in blocking. Moonracer (talk) 07:19, April 22, 2020 (UTC)


I didn't realize that I would offend other users nor that my wording was "rude, improper and unacceptable behavior" or it would be considered offensive writing. I personally don't think it was any of those things. 
However, I think it's better I drop this since I don't want to be blocked.

I've reviewed the matter and can see nothing "improper or unacceptable" whatsoever. What is considered offensive is, of course subjective, however there has been no insulting language, nor personal attacks, so from a policy viewpoint there is no call for action here. Threats of blocking certainly aren't helpful. - Xanderen signature 07:47, April 22, 2020 (UTC)


Thank. I think I made Moonracer mad because I feel his wrote a books section that included his opinion but isn't totally support by the books.

You are wrong. You have not offended me in any way.
Once you opened a public thread, and phrased it in a manner, which IMO is offensive, I gave you the warning. I assure you I would have done the same, had you referred to a passage that someone else wrote.
IMO, accusing another user of making up stuff (I do not mean deliberate vandalism) is offensive.
Like I wrote, everyone has the right to disagree with others - but politely.
No one told you to drop the issue, on the contrary.
Now that Xandered restored it, I advise you to rephrase the thread. Moonracer (talk) 07:59, April 22, 2020 (UTC)


I didn't say offended I said mad. I don't think it was offensive. You're entitled to feel that way but I said I was going to drop the issue because I don't want you to block me. "Properly" and "offensive" is a matter of opinion. Everyone has the right to disagreed with others and I agreed politely but calling some ignorance isn't polite and is offensive in my opinion. Along with dismissing them, what is seemly because you don't like what they had to say. I don't feel I accused you of making up stuff. I said I felt you were giving your opinion/feeling on the fact that Robb didn't care which is a matter of opinion, only somewhat supported by the text. I think it's fine how I originally wrote it.
