I've grown very tired of the image edit wars caused by User:Genocyber. He seems to be either ignorant of our rules, or either blatantly disregards them, or a bit of both. In addition to countless examples of bad images he's uploaded and re-uploaded (Such as images of Smoker and Hina from Z, which it was determined were unneeded since they look the same as past appearances) that have been deleted, here are several examples of his recent edit warring:

These continued edit wars are getting very troublesome and unproductive. Either his behavior should change, or he should get a ban. I don't wanna deal with this anymore. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 16:05, April 21, 2013 (UTC)


I guess an one-week ban would be good.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  16:10, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

I think it'd be fine if he'd just use talkpages more so we could discuss stuff. In 500 edits he deigned to reply to 3 talkpage posts. (And those edits cover everything from the beginning of March, so they do include those editwars) I agree with staw, 1 or 2 weeks sounds reasonable, and a general fixing of attitude is required.  Fanta Talk  16:27, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

He's been quite disruptive and unreasonable. He's gotta change or say bye-bye. uknownada Talk 17:47, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

I don't really know about Geno that much but from what I've seen from this, I'd have to agree.  STC  Talk Page  18:12, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

I definitely agree with banning him, but I'd say for a month at least. He went with this streak for a long time, despite warnings. 1-2 weeks isn't enough, if you'd ask me. Yata Talk to me 20:00, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

I'll have to agree. Let Geno feel the at-least-one-week Ban! >_> WU out - ☆ Wonder-kun ☆ (◣ ◢) 20:18, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

I guess that it has finally come down to this. This behaviour isn't anything recent, as it has been happening for quite some time, but people were tolerant until now. I think that a one month ban minimum is within reason. MasterDeva (talk) 16:25, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

I believe 1 month is too much.but he definitely deserves a ban for one or twee weeks.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  17:16, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

I would normally agree with that but as I mentioned above this has been going on for quite some time, and Genocyber is not a newbie here either. If it wasn't for that, a two weeks would have been enough. MasterDeva (talk) 18:09, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

Well,Genos is a good editor so I guess we can show some tolerance.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  18:13, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

If you guys really want to ban me over trivial shit then be my guest. Just remember I've done alot for this place. And these edit wars are goddamn retarded. That one with Robins face? Guess what, her eyes were always blue in the show! For fucks sake just write in the trivia section the manga colors them in brown since they're never going to change in the show. And the RAWs I change? I do it because a blank scanslation is more crisp and looks ultimately better than a low quality grainy image. People visiting the wiki here don't give a shit about that sort of thing, but I'm sure they'd like being able to SEE the image clearly.

So go ahead and ban me. I really couldn't care less. I only do what I do for the love of the source material. Genocyber (talk) 02:51, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

You do what you love for the source material? That sounds kind of strange since you're denying the source material on things that come to Robin's eyes. The source material is the manga, not the anime. And while I do agree the color scheme isn't too important to change in the portrait, it's not something to war over. Especially how poor your reasoning is. One Piece is a comic first, and a TV show second. These edits are not "trivial". They're rude, spontaneous, and constant. Your attitude is not appreciative in this community. Even I agree with having stuff like Robin's portrait being the anime, or the scanlation being the manga, but it's too trivial and not important enough for me to care so much for. Even if it was, I wouldn't revert it as rudely as you do. I even remember the Supernova portrait wars: "reverting until you can come up with a less butthurt reason". You're a very rude user, Geno. It's not trivial; it's simply bad behavior. uknownada Talk 02:58, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

I like the fact that geno is contributing but if his edits are going to be troublesome and also his attitude is not toleranted in this wiki, so i think two weeks ban  Mejiaj1  Talk  Mejiaj1  Talk  03:10, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

You ignore the rules of the wiki, Geno. If you disagree with them, edit wars aren't the way to change them. You may not like the rules, but you are still subject to them.

Anyway, are we good to start a poll here? JustSomeDude...  Talk | 03:12, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

Kind of pointless since everyone seems to want me gone. But that Supernovas thing is still retarded. How are we expected to make any progress around here when nobody wants to change anything?? And my 'behavior' is merely my frustrations at the lack of understanding alot of you seem to have when I make these edits. Better pictures will come along, characters will get new looks, change them! If you people would stop painting me as black against white you might see some of my better reasoning, and me being alot nicer. Genocyber (talk)

What about the no ban option? SeaTerror (talk) 05:32, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

Hear, hear, some of you are making banninbg people into your hobby instead of focusing on editing and contributing meanigful stuff. Before you ban me again for just one remark. While others can go spouting off, unchecked and mostly unchallenged. (OnePieceNation (talk) 20:44, April 28, 2013 (UTC))

It's not that we want you gone, Geno. It's that we want you to change the way you act a bit to a friendlier mood. I understand you can be frustrated; we all are. But when you're unreasonably continuing an edit war without any input whatsoever except to insult, that feels more like stubbornness. It will cause less frustration to rationally discuss the war, rather than continue it with insults. You also need to understand the reasoning behind us keeping old images. Something like the Supernovas page strictly uses information that's pre-timeskip. Changing their portraits would be inconsistent. We also can't really act like that post-timeskip image is canon, since it has yet to be in the story yet. But I'm getting off-topic. Those are just examples of things you can rationally protest without having to resort to insults or edit-warring. uknownada Talk 07:21, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

Bumping this, since Geno keeps editwarring without using the talkpages. here, here, here, here here, here and here. Gal seems to be at least making an effort to use the talkpages now. Geno, not so much.  Fanta Talk  12:54, May 2, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, in those reverts he's been rather rude too. I'm making the test poll. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 19:06, May 2, 2013 (UTC)

I suggest polling the length at the same time.   Galaxy 9000   23:56, May 2, 2013 (UTC)

That's not how we do it, according to the rules. I'm not arguing that here, because here is not the place for it, and since it's been a few days this poll will open. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 00:30, May 5, 2013 (UTC)

Maybe mentioned already, but more edit warring. Sewil 4:37, May 5 - 2013

I am an agressive editor. Merely passionate about my work. If one or two little swears gets me banned, then go ahead and do it. Genocyber (talk) 20:14, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

The swears aren't the problem. It's being a overly "aggressive editor" that has led to the ban. We don't want to edit war over everything, particularly when there's no discussions or when discussions are ignored. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 20:32, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

The only edit wars have been over mostly Galaxy changing everything back to manga's which is infuriating. I have been giving my points and reasoning for changing things that have mostly been ignored.Genocyber (talk) 21:27, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

That's because your reasoning for them is too little and too late. Just because you give a reason for why you edit warred, it doesn't make it a god reason to edit war, or get you out of a ban. I really want you to edit war less and to be a nicer, more communicative editor, but at this point we'll see if that's something that you can do after your ban. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 06:17, May 8, 2013 (UTC)

"That's because your reasoning for them is too little and too late." So in other words you just don't want to listen to the reasons. SeaTerror (talk) 17:10, May 8, 2013 (UTC)

I didn't say that. I mean that he continued to edit war extensively after this forum was created (and even after the poll started), and only stopped once the portraits were locked by admins. I find the reasons he gave to be inadequate for the extent of his deeds. That's what I mean by "too little, too late." Don't put words in my mouth. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 17:19, May 8, 2013 (UTC)

You find EVERYTHING to be inadequate. Like when I had apologized on my own forum and explained everything you still voted for the ban along with other very similar things. You have this major problem where everything is inadequate and keep on bringing up pointless things like the chat thing on Galaxy's ban forum. Or ignore any responses that don't suit your agenda. SeaTerror (talk) 00:16, May 10, 2013 (UTC)

You vote for Geno's ban but you vote against Gal's ban. Those 2 cases are almost the same so I really don't understand why you want Genos ban but gal not.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  13:17, May 10, 2013 (UTC)

Because gal is at least making a sense out of his edit wars, trying to talk with people why he thinks his image is better, while geno is just warring without a reason and just for edits, it seems. He is also very aggressive and ignores talk pages on images during edit wars. Sewil 22:10, May 10 - 2013
I put reasons down on all the images I edit. Galaxy is fucking with the entire place reverting every image as he pleases, giving very half-assed reasons. And I do respond to the talk pages, but as usual everybody ignores my input around here. I feel like I'm trying to staple together a ship falling apart here! Genocyber (talk) 12:50, May 11, 2013 (UTC)
Well that is just your opinion. And yesterday you reverted not one, but three images that had already been discussed and closed, totally ignoring a long-since archived discussion and reverting them for the sole reason of noticing it when gal re-uploaded another version of the hody jones portrait. Files: File:Hody Jones Portrait.png, File:Zeo_Portrait.png, File:Daruma Portrait.png. Sewil 19:51, May 11 - 2013
I changed those because those make for horrible portraits. Also spoilers? Sheesh....
By the way, I hadn't known about that discussion and if people agree that really looks better, and not even using the anime portraits then that makes me quite dissapointed. I think Gal is being quite manipulative and pushing his ways hard on others. I have been merely trying to keep things as they were before everything turned to shit. If your going to ban me for doing this, then stop talking and get it over with. Genocyber (talk) 22:35, May 11, 2013 (UTC)

Discussion 2

geno has started edit warring again and hasnt been listening to other users i think a discussion should be opened up about his behavior. here are some examples:

--Quoth The Raven "Nevermore" 22:16, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

Let's not forget this one and it's talk page.

I also think another ban is in order. Clearly, nothing has been learned, and Geno continues to be "an aggressive editor". He continues to edit war, and far more rudely than we've allowed others to get away with. I was hesitant to re-open this forum in the past weeks, because he "just got off of a ban", but after today's blatant disregard of a poll and our rules, I will not be hesitant in the future.

I don't know if he just doesn't read talk pages before he reverts, or just chooses to ignore them. Either way, his behavior is still unacceptable, and another ban is in order.

And Geno, if you actually looked at our recently edited talk pages and forums, you'll find that there are ways to discuss changing the rules that you seem to think are so wrong. Like this one which could stop half of your edit wars JustSomeDude...  Talk | 22:42, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

All edits I did were of already current edit wars going on. You seem to misunderstand vandalizing with trying to get your voice heard around here. I always provide reasons when I add or alter a picture. As I explained to Galaxy, the poll was decided on a anime picture that was being pushed at the time, but however I chose to use an older one that came before the poll and since the poll was on one picture and not ALL, my reasons did not break any rules. If you want to ban me, I suggest also banning Galaxy who has been micromanaging everything around here, and trying to push his way. Genocyber (talk) 03:29, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

^ This just proves he isn't reading our forums or talk pages.

The image that you reverted to was the one we polled. You are breaking our rules, and I definitely support a ban.   Galaxy 9000   03:43, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

Even if you revert images with a reason provided, it's still edit warring. Edit wars are solved on talk pages, not in edit summaries. An admin told you to stop two days ago and you did not.

And often your reasons are flawed or ignorant of our policies. Here's an example: this version of Luffy's portrait (the one you reverted to) is the one that was beaten in the poll. I know this for two reasons: A) I voted for it. B) If you look at the dates of the poll (May 14-19), this is the only anime version of the image that was warred over. This version was first uploaded May 25th, after the poll had closed, and the fact that it was not part of the poll was discussed on the talk page. If you had actually done your homework by reading the talk page, or viewing the image history, or just believing other users when they told you you were posting against the poll decision, you could have avoided at lot of trouble. But you didn't, and you've gotten into an a petty argument with another user over your own ignorance. I don't see any reason why we should have to put up with behavior like this. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 03:56, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

[[:File:Moriah Attacked by Doflamingo and Pacifistas.png|Yay more edit warring without first discussing it in the talk page!]] Sewil 9:33, June 27 - 2013

Wow, on an image that had about 18-19 edits on the talk page by the time he made that revert. I don't know how you could ignore that before making an edit. I say unless Geno or anyone else can say anything notable in his defense before the end of the week (saturday), we start the poll. We shouldn't let this forum "die" and in effect forgive all of the actions mentioned in this section. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 14:10, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

Actually, that talk page had only 2 actual posts when he reverted.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  14:25, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

I agree with JSD.

Although, due to the messages on his talk, I don't think he's coming back.   Galaxy 9000   18:47, June 27, 2013 (UTC)

Why don't we open a poll already and be done with it? There are are plenty or reasons that warrant one anyway. MasterDeva (talk) 13:36, June 28, 2013 (UTC)

Are we going to open this?   Galaxy 9000   01:19, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

As it would seem Geno's behaviour hasn't improved, i support opening a poll. Besty17Talk 01:43, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

Poll draft below.   Galaxy 9000   01:45, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

He continues to not do things correctly. All of his recent images are named completely wrong, and don't have the correct categorization.   Galaxy 9000   09:12, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

What do you mean? I re uploaded one that needed a better name, but I been giving them all good names and the appropriate categories. Genocyber (talk) 09:49, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

Names like Kizaru zephyr.PNG are not descriptive, and just cause more work for our image renamers. As for categories, you continue to leave out the movie image category, the episode images category, and the movie images category from your images, even though you have been asked before to include them.   Galaxy 9000   09:58, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

I don't remember anyone telling me this, but if its what needed I'll at them. Genocyber (talk) 10:10, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

How about an anime version of this? JustSomeDude...  Talk | 04:09, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

Updated with the ban poll version. Sewil 4:41, June 30 - 2013

Hm, yea, you mean a manga version ^^, but thinking about it, I don't think signing is really relative to voting, it's not really voting for some thing or the other when signing something, it's really just helping that person out.

A good image would be 2 people disputing over something and a third person stopping them. Sewil 4:45, June 30 - 2013

In a way, by giving their signatures, the citizens were voting for integration with humans; while not doing so or taking it back was either neutral or being against it.

Let's take that talk here. Getting back to Genocyber's poll, have we all agreed to start it now? uknownada Talk 06:46, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

I don't think anyone disagrees. Sewil 7:50, June 30 - 2013

I would put in the options for the poll, but I think the poll template should be automated more. I think if you put code like {{Poll/ban/User:Genocyber}} or something, it should just fill out everything, including the poll options. There are never any alterations to ban polls, except for start/end times anyways. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 11:45, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

It would be the same thing. This one basically has 2 polls in one which is why there are so many options. And you still need a variable for voting (on each length option) so I don't really get how adding another sub-page for the user would make it simpler. Adding a sub-page for each user would only remove the user variable. Sewil 12:02, June 30 - 2013

Weeellll...I leave for a few days vacation and come back to this. Nice to know you people have found your witch to burn. Go ahead and ban me if this is how I'll be treated from now on. I'd rather move on to a better place. Genocyber (talk) 11:58, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

You brought this on yourself. I'm surprised you expected something less of a turnout after your actions, and it doesn't really seem like you care about this community at all anymore since you decide to quit just like that and wont even defend yourself? Why should we respond with a positive attitude after that? Sewil 15:08, July 2 - 2013

Because Sewil, it doesn't matter what I say up to this point. The decision has already been made. Genocyber (talk) 19:33, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

If you had rectified your behaviour after the first ban, this wouldn't be happening now. You had your fair share of warnings. As Sewil said above, you brought this on yourself so don't try to play the victim. MasterDeva (talk) 20:53, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

Rudeness and ignoring policies don't help the wiki. Videogamep Talk 01:18, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

The fact that you've never cared to learn or follow our rules reflects just how little you respect the community. The "way you do business" is not in accordance with our policies, and is destructive to our community. After all the reminders and warnings about our rules, you can't even post a response in the proper section of your own ban forum (The "poll discussion" section is only for issues related to the poll, you should be posting in the "Discussion 2" section). And this isn't new, because you never make a new section on anyone's user talk page, always just add your post to the bottom of the page. Since you've posted in the wrong section, I can't even be sure if you read my response to your most recent post in the actual discussion section. To quote a movie, "What we got here is a failure to communicate." Let's see if you can communicate in 3 months. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 01:29, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

I follow the rules here to the very best of my ability. If I miss a few here and there it isn't intentional. The only real problem has been over the image wars. I find I have a right to speak my voice over something I feel is wrong, even if everyone disagrees with me. Even if the discussion is over, I'd speak my mind and let things be heard. That is what part of being a group effort is. And if others have a problem with me I will approach them over it. But regardless, it seems my time here is at an end. Nothing can change that now. Genocyber (talk) 05:08, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

Well, this shows that he's still not reading. Post in the proper section.   Galaxy 9000   09:12, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

Since I still don't know if you've read my post above, here it is again:

Even if you revert images with a reason provided, it's still edit warring. Edit wars are solved on talk pages, not in edit summaries. An admin told you to stop two days ago and you did not.
And often your reasons are flawed or ignorant of our policies. Here's an example: this version of Luffy's portrait (the one you reverted to) is the one that was beaten in the poll. I know this for two reasons: A) I voted for it. B) If you look at the dates of the poll (May 14-19), this is the only anime version of the image that was warred over. This version was first uploaded May 25th, after the poll had closed, and the fact that it was not part of the poll was discussed on the talk page. If you had actually done your homework by reading the talk page, or viewing the image history, or just believing other users when they told you you were posting against the poll decision, you could have avoided at lot of trouble. But you didn't, and you've gotten into an a petty argument with another user over your own ignorance. I don't see any reason why we should have to put up with behavior like this. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 03:56, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

It doesn't really matter if you broke the rules intentionally or not. That would only affect how long I'd vote for your ban to be. The fact of the matter is that your actions, like the ones I mentioned above, are disruptive and create more work for other editors who have to clean up your messes and take the time to deal with your incessant and flawed arguing.

Take the time to truly learn how the wiki deals with things and what our policies, particularly those regarding image wars. Feel free to ask questions about the rules, and you'll get happy responses. Don't just edit without full knowledge of them, that is only a recipe for disaster for everyone. If you do those things, then you can become a truly valued editor here, instead of a nuisance. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 12:32, July 3, 2013 (UTC)

This is why i hate polls where u can see others' votes. It disables you to vote from your opinion and just makes you vote on what others voted on. Say you wanted to vote for "permanent", but you see that it's kind of tied between "1 week" and "3 months", you know that, because you can see the votes, that voting for "permanent" would be throwing away your vote. If you couldn't see the votes, you wouldn't think twice, but rather just vote for whatever you think. Sewil 13:29, July 9 - 2013

Nobody cares. SeaTerror (talk) 17:53, July 9, 2013 (UTC)

Sewil has a point. Lelouch Di Britannia Talk Page  04:55, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

Not at all. SeaTerror (talk) 07:03, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

I also agree with Sewil. I wish it was possible to hide the polls.   Galaxy 9000   07:04, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

Good thing it isn't possible. SeaTerror (talk) 07:20, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

I brought this up ages ago in Meganoide's ban forum, but I feel the best solution in these multi-option ban length polls is to make it so that if you choose an extreme at either end and it doesn't win, your vote is moved to the next option closer to the centre. So if 3 people vote one-week, 5 vote one-month and 6 vote three-months, the one-week votes would be counted as part of one-month, which would win 8-6. This would prevent people having to change their votes to avoid wasting them. It would be justified on the basis that the people voting one-week would prefer a one-month ban to a three-month. We could make the redirection opt-in/out as well, just in case people don't want to for any reason. Zodiaque             07:27, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

Hell no. We will never allow that. A person who voted for one week doesn't mean they voted for one month and vice versa. A person's vote only counts for the option they voted on and only they can change it. SeaTerror (talk) 07:30, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

I kinda like that idea actually. Sewil 21:03, July 10 - 2013

I agree with the opinion raised by SeaTerror above. There is no point to hiding the voters on polls and the process should be as transparent as possible. If someone feels insecure about voting for something, outside what majority has voted for, and can't handle the weight of their own decisions, they shouldn't vote at all. There is no such thing as "throwing away your vote" like removing your vote all together from the poll. MasterDeva (talk) 21:20, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

I second Deva's statement. WU out - Omgomg.gifWonder 怀疑 Talk 说话 Cute_Helioptile_Sprite.png  13:43, July 12, 2013 (UTC)

Uhm, the last two people who voted have exceeded the end time of the poll making their votes void. I think we should write somewhere that end the result was a tie and that the vote period will be extended so more people can vote. MasterDeva (talk) 12:43, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

Discussion 3

Alright, this is the third time this forum has been opened. Once again, Genocyber has been ignoring rules regarding image wars, which we all know he has been previously informed of (see the previous sections of this forum if you don't believe me). He also continues to be insulting towards other users, as you can see from the previous link. There has been zero change in his editing practices and zero change in his attitude. I believe we should once again ban Genocyber, though for a much longer period of time than before. His most recent ban was for 3 months, and I think his continued behavior merits a ban of one year. Also, since this is the 3rd time, I think when the issue goes to poll, the option of a permanent ban should be there. I've said it all before in previous sections, and really have nothing new to say this time, except that I'm significantly less tolerant this time around, since Geno has clearly learned nothing. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 04:19, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

Nothing banworthy this time since that's only one image. Plus he wasn't the only one to revert the image. SeaTerror (talk) 06:12, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

It doesn't look ban worthy, but he should at least get a warning considering his history with image wars. Videogamep Talk 06:30, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

I agree with a ban. There have also been other instances recently, like this image (and its corresponding talk page), changing captions on pages, and attempting to remove valid images from pages, in order to fit his own editing desires [2].

I'm also sure that his unwillingness to upload new images correctly also helps to contribute towards a ban. He's been told that the categories he adds are usually wrong, and that he doesn't change Category:Chapter Images to Category:Episode Images, when uploading a new image, but instead, he adds Category:Anime Images, and doesn't erase the chapter images category, causing more work for other editors. It would be fine if it wasn't such a common occurrence, and if he hadn't been told to not do such a thing.

@SeaTerror, he was the only one to continuously revert it to the version that breaks the rules (the non original version), even though he knows not to do it.

I don't think a warning is going to do anything, honestly. This isn't something new for him, so if the previous punishment wasn't enough, then it just needs to be longer, in order to give him a harsher lesson.   Galaxy 9000   12:01, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

Hhahah, This is getting ridiculous. You guys should fix your behavior instead of blaming everything on Geno. Someone is trying to help the wiki and you guys do what? Ban him of course! Nice OP Wiki, once again you prove how friendly you are!  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  12:19, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

That's a really stupid rule anyway when it comes to current arcs in the manga and anime. Obviously the manga image is going to be there for more than a month before the anime gets there. SeaTerror (talk) 16:57, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

...That doesn't really mean anything. It's still the default, and original version.   Galaxy 9000   17:11, January 13, 2014 (UTC) SeaTerror (talk) 17:21, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

Nice attempt at trolling, but keep that crap off this forum.   Galaxy 9000   19:04, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

Obviously sarcasm = trolling now. You missed the point. It is damn obvious that the manga version of a CURRENT arc is going to have a manga image before an anime image. SeaTerror (talk) 19:08, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

You're missing the point, ST. It has nothing to do with manga images being from the current arc. The real problem is that Geno continues to revert images instead of using the talk page, which is exactly the kind of thing the rule regarding image wars was created to solve.

And Staw, clearly many people (myself included) tried to help Geno 2 bans ago. Before every ban, many people attempted to warn Geno of how his actions are detrimental to the wiki and violate its policies. Check the history of this forum and his talk page if you don't believe me. I start this now because clearly that help does nothing and Geno is still what he once called himself "a harsh editor". I don't see how you can ask us to change our behavior when a user like Geno continues to do exactly what he's been banned for before and warned about 1000 times before. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 20:30, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

So what now? Obviously banning him hasen't stopped him. AsuraDrago 15:17, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

That's why the permanent ban option is on the table.   Galaxy 9000   15:47, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

Well judging how his actions have been before and after the last two polls that won by a large margin, why not just use the permanent ban? Its obvious how the poll will be in favor of banning him. We all have seen his rudeness and barbaric language in play, and his reasons for edits/wars are always invalid and nothing but swearing. This will turn into a pattern unless he honestly agrees to shape up or a permanent ban must truly be the final resort. AsuraDrago 22:40, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

"and his reasons for edits/wars are always invalid" You mean like Galaxy's reasoning because a hair color is slightly different? SeaTerror (talk) 23:08, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

Look, I agree with you on that. But thats a different subject. AsuraDrago 23:18, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

No it isn't. You said Geno's were always invalid. It's the same thing. SeaTerror (talk) 23:35, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

Reasons for reverting do not matter for this forum. What matters is the rule against image editing wars, which Geno violates regularly and Galaxy does not. Please keep the discussion on topic, guys. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 23:39, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

I was anyway. So whats going to happen then? Like i said it will be a reapeated pattern with Geno. AsuraDrago 23:52, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

I'd find it hard to argue. Multiple warnings, no good. His previous bans were about 3 months, maybe we should try 1 year this time, and if that doesn't work, permanent ban. Or should we just make it permanent right now, since this is his 4th transgression? Yata Talk to me 00:24, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

He's already had two polls resulting in bans. All won over by a huge margin. Plus with recent events I think a permanent ban now would be reasonable. But since a year-long/permanet ban is a serious matter lets do this: one more chance. I know you all have been more than generous with warnings, but let this be the last time. The next time he does anything bad, ban him. No questions asked, no warnings, he'd be done. AsuraDrago 00:54, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

Well....maybe if this place wasn't ran like a bunch of fucking idiots then maybe more shit would get done around here. Throughout the entire time I been here its been nothing but an air of narccism self importance, and fighting over every single little change that gets made around here. Some people like Galaxy have been a cruel cancer to this place, consistantly shitting up the pages and starting wars with anyone who wants to do something productive around here. So you know what? Ban me. Do it! Free me from this fucking hell hole so I'm not tempted to come back. Every thing I've done to help this place has been fought tooth and nail under the most trivial and shithawk reasonings. The admins don't do fuck all around here besides ban people. You can take all your little pathetic flame wars and ego's and shove it. You'll not get one more helpful edit out of me. Hit the perma ban button and continue to wallow in your cesspool.

Nobody700 01:10, January 15, 2014 (UTC)

I agree. He lost all privileges now. He was disrupting the wiki, and insulting users. Different when you joke, and what he said. People who only disrupt wikis don't deserve to work on it. I admit, I don't work much, but I do sometimes, and I never on purpose cause problems on articles. Just wanted to say that, so people don't accuse me of being a hypocrite.
