Quoth the article:

  • Dogley reached the Dogley Dimension by level-teleporting to level 4.5 in wizard mode. Then why did Dogley not immediately fall to level 5, as all other monsters seem to do?

Should be obvious. He's in Wizard mode. Monsters aren't. -- 18:48, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Quoth the article:

  • Why are we naming this after Dogley anyway, if the Wizard of Yendor already knew of this dimension?

Should be obvious: its the same reason that they're called America instead of Columbusland or whatever. The Wizard may have discovered the Dogley Dimension, but Dogley was the one who made it famous, much the same as the fact that despite Columbus beiong the one who discovered the existance of America, but Amerigo Vespuci made them famous to the king of england, so the king named them after Amerigo instead of Columbus.

Columbus did not discover America. You can't discover a continent that already has people living there. --MadDawg2552 20:18, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Says who? I just discovered a new land across the eastern ocean from America, and of course there were native people there. In their own strange language, they seem to be called Oiresh, but I have chosen to call them the East Chinese to avoid confusion. The natives attempted to resist my claim to their lands, but as they are primitives who don't even have atomic bombs, much less modern weaponry like thermonuclear MIRVs, that can scarcely be countenanced as meaningful. The larger problem is that of the counter-claims by other civilized nations—in particular, the Queen of Canada claims that she owns at least the northern part of my new lands—but I'm sure a few decades of piracy will chase them off their claim, as is the usual practice.
More importantly, unless you think Amerigo Vespucci was a native (hint: Italy is generally considered part of Europe, not North America), your point doesn't actually contradict anything. -- 01:31, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
