Hi! Welcome, and thanks for contributing to NetHackWiki!

  • The How to help and Style guide pages are excellent starting points.
  • Recent changes is a great first stop, because you can see what other people are editing right this minute, and where you can help.
  • Questions? Need help? You can ask on my talk page, at the Community Portal or on the talk page associated with each article! Just remember to sign those posts with four tildes: ~~~~. That will expand to create a signature.

I'm really happy to have you here, and look forward to working with you! -- ZeroOne (Talk) 22:37, 24 June 2009

Thanks for the page move

Thanks for moving Magic portal. -- 18:20, 8 November 2011 (UTC)


for your grammar fixes. --S.K. 21:35, 6 December 2011 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing that -- apparently dipping my longsword 300 times without getting Excalibur was just a phenomenal streak of bad luck, not a reflection of a code change. I remembered reading that at least in one other variant, dipping for the watery tart's sword was limited to Knight... guess it's back to hunting for another fountain now.

How to attribute

Not sure how to attribute that page, since it is technically a leaked version - the link on the page is to a pastebin which reprints the fixes35 file from the leaked tarball - if you know how to attribute that, please be my guest --Ozymandias (talk) 20:59, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Evil patch?

Hi, I've heard you are making an evil patch for NetHack - does that have a git repo? Cause I'd like to use some of the evil patch ideas for Slash'EM Extended, seeing as nobody's playing that variant anyway so nobody's gonna complain if I make it even more annoying. :) --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 12:26, 15 April 2015 (UTC)


Funny, when I was in school, they put me in a program for gifted children, but I hadn't been given to anyone, as a gift or otherwise. But that was in another country, and the language has moved on since then. Netzhack (talk) 23:12, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

As an adjective (rather than a verb), the word has two different meanings. English is weird sometimes. Ais523 (talk) 23:13, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
The other usage really didn't exist in my day. I'm 59. We said "give" or "give a gift" or "make a present of". English is getting weirder all the time, is my perspective. Netzhack (talk) 23:44, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Ngrams confirms it. Netzhack (talk) 00:16, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
