Recent Reversion

Why did you revert my edits? I was editing the cheating category to only include things that were listed as cheating in the cheating article.

Really? In the article Cheating:
Why did you remove the reference to changing the system clock? That is pretty clearly cheating. --Mogri 02:17, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Adjusting the system clock is "cheating" like using a FPS keyboard instead of a standard QWERTY keyboard is cheating. It's something completely external to the game.
No, the game would receive the same input from the keyboards, whereas you are deliberately changing the information received by the game when you alter the game clock. A better analogy might be a turbo controller versus a standard controller. --Mogri 00:29, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Pudding farming is listed as "degenerate behavior" not as "cheating". Try again.

Semantics. It's listed on the cheating page and is therefore behavior considered by some to be cheating. This isn't an ethics board; we should notify readers which behaviors might be frowned upon and leave it to their discretion whether to take advantage of those behaviors. Perhaps you can explain your other edits?
If this isn't an "ethics board" then why do you list anything other than the two things that are clearly cheating (savescumming and startscumming) under cheating?
"we should notify readers which behaviors might be frowned upon and leave it to their discretion whether to take advantage of those behaviors" <--
I'd like to point out that I'm not the only one opposed to your changes -- 65.110.6.36 also reverted your edit. Also, you neglect to mention your other edits -- I assume you have abandoned those?
More to the point, instead of squabbling pettily over what makes it onto the cheating page, your time and mine is better spent adding fresh content to the wiki. --Mogri 00:29, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
