::I could state certain things in the introductory paragraph for browsers to be aware of so that they don't become confused as you mentioned and I would also modify the classification of certain Zoids to reflect what they are stated to be based on in their article, for example the Ultrasaurus zoid as based on ''Brachiosaurus'' and not ''Giraffatitan'' as I have it listed as based on, is this what you were talking about?

Creating the article would add a degree of legitimization and recognition of your blog, which may compromise the wikis integrity in the eyes of prospective editors and cost us editors. We've had an annoyingly persistent editor who used a similar system and categorized Zoids like you did in your blog... it took me ''weeks'' to undo and I had to partially do it a second time. By Zoid type, I mean [https://zoids.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Liger-Type_Zoids this] and [https://zoids.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Tyrannosaur-Type_Zoids this]. Personally it's a no for me, but once we have more editors you can bring it up and consensus on it. I can't allow it, not even as an Admin, I wouldn't be a tyrant.

::::Could you say more clearly what you mean when you say you think that the integrity of the Zoids wiki might be compromised by an article featuring a classification system that lists Zoids under categories of the creatures they are described as based on from their articles, I wouldn't be adding anything unoffical, just listing them in the order of the creatures they are officially based on.

With your article people can simply say that it was in an article and they could mistakenly believe, like the editor who previously did so, that it is okay to categorize pages like that. That would worsen the wiki and divert users attention to cleaning up unacceptable edits instead of making meaningful and worthwhile edits and working on projects. Also, once again, supporting fan project would make the wiki look like it doesn't care about in-universe canon. I can't get anymore more clear than this. Also, try to make your talk page edits in one go. Users can edit conflict and lose their entire written message.

:I could just mention in the introductory paragraph that Zoid articles are not to be categorised in that way and an existing article that already classifies the Zoids in an animal taxonomic order would make that sort of article categorisation redundant and less likely to occur anyway. Something like that category editing person you mentioned probably won't happen again and if it does then I could just undo their editing myself if you think it is innapropriate so that you don't have to.
 
 
:Also I wouldn't call an article like that a fan project, my blog post maybe but an actual article would look different, the classification system would be modified to only list creatures that Zoids are stated as officially based on (unlike my blog post which features what I think is more accurate classification), it would look just like the [[List of Zoids]] article but with the Zoids listed in an animal taxonomic order instead, this would be the only major difference.
 
 
:The creatures Zoids are listed in their articles as based on are still official canon and wouldn't conflict with anything or describe anything new that isn't mentioned elsewhere on this wiki, the List of Zoids article even lists the creatures the Zoids are based on, though obviously the lists themselves only list the Zoids alphabetically, does this comprehensively address your concerns?

Listen, I can't even okay the project. I don't have the authority and it requires consensus; multiple users agreeing. My opinion is irrelevant, but I don't support the idea and even if I did then I wouldn't have the authority to okay it. Not even as an Admin/B-crat. I've been patience and I've explained this to you already, but I have things to do and so far I've just been rehashing the same thing repeatedly. Honestly it just seems like you want validation and recognition for an ultimately meaningless fan project... it's interesting, but it isn't canon or even truly relevant. I will discuss this no further; I've already wasted an hour. [[User:Zane T 69|Zane T 69]] ([[User talk:Zane T 69|talk]]) 03:55, February 25, 2019 (UTC)
 
 
:Well I wouldn't go so far as to call it a project since it's just a list article and I would be able to create it quite quickly, it also could simply just be a compliment to the List of Zoids article until admin decide if it should be featured more prominently or not.
 
 
:And also if the animal taxonomic Zoids classification article somehow becomes an issue for whatever reason then it could just be deleted or edited to be more appropriate, so there really isn't any problem there at all.
 
 
:I could simply create the article for you to review and see if it would be a nice compliment to the List of Zoids article for the time being, I don't see how any of this could possibly destabilise the Zoids wiki, what do you say? [[User:Freighttrain, The|Freighttrain, The]] ([[User talk:Freighttrain, The|talk]]) 04:05, February 25, 2019 (UTC)
 
 
I say no. It's your fan project and while the effort that you invested in it is impressive, it isn't relevant. It's applying Earth's taxonomical system to mecha on another planet. It's for all intents and purposes, fanon. Please quit wasting my time. You have my answer, which is ''no''.

:Zoids mecha are officially based on animals or mythological etc. creatures from Earth and not just in some of their names or on the boxes the models come in, in the anime sometimes characters will mention that a particular Zoid is based on a particular animal.
 
 
:Those animals and creatures Zoids are based on are from Earth, not anywhere else and the official and only kind of classification system for those animals is the animal taxonomic classification system, such an article would not be fanon at all and would only be using offical information and the preexisting biology taxonomical system and would even be titled and arranged in a similar way to the List of Zoids article (maybe something like 'List of Zoids by Creature Type').
 
 
:The creation of one new article wouldn't cause any sort of hassle, especially not after Moviejunkie2009 just created a whole bunch of I don't even know what. This is how a wiki develops, by users creating new articles and the type of article I propose would help facilitate easier and more constructive browsing and therefore assist with productiveness potential.

Moviejunkie created future infrastructure for expansion and improvement. You want validation for your fan project. You've annoyed me over something pointless for '''over two hours''' and I'm done. If you create your page, then you will most likely get blocked. I know that I would delete the page and your blog. They may be based upon Earth's life-forms, but they are mecha and therefore different. Your fixating over similarities for something that is, in-universe, on the other side of the galaxy.
 
 
'''If you post on this wall one more time about your fanon project then I will deem it harassment and seek a block for you. For the second time, I'm done. For the second time, quit wasting my time. Create your page, but don't be surprised if you get blocked. Your actions here demonstrate a severe lack of maturity; you kept bugging me until I essentially caved. ''I told you this at least twice, but I don't have the authority to okay the pages creation, but like a child you continued pointlessly pestering me over something that doesn't matter.'' Your blog is only important to you, the bulk of your edits; over 250, are on your blog. That and spam editing on talkpages, which, again, causes edit conflicts and slows conversations. I don't think that you're mature enough for this wiki. Once again, don't bother me about your dumb blog. You have exhausted my patience and my understanding and have forever reduced my opinion of you.''' [[User:Zane T 69|Zane T 69]] ([[User talk:Zane T 69|talk]]) 05:11, February 25, 2019 (UTC)

I don't understand why you want to remove heroes off the characters who are the good guys that makes no sense.
