About the ROMs page[edit]

Holy shit bruv, I didn't even realize what you were losing your shit over. I did those edits to simplify how long and redundant half the page was LOL. I'm an active browser on /r/piracy and /r/3dshacks, are you kidding me? What I put there was fine and I don't see why you reversed half the shit. Regardless, I guess I'm sorry? Take care.

Wrote a long-ass reply here but it doesn't seem to have passed. First of all, my mistake about the portalroms site, it was working but the download section wasn't and I was using it before. That's where that first impression came from. You were not the first one to remove tons of links from this page, I'll just say. Beyond that, I have no desire in having an edit war here.

About wiiuiso - most prior content is gone, but still has some activity and full sets, having anything other than the "official" source just in case is preferable to relying on something that could be blocked. PSNdl and FreeShop's databases aren't exhaustive, and the alternatives listed (Ciangel and the other ps3 thing) are actually needed for games not on that list (like the obscure jp digital stuff). That's where I got the second impression that you're the type that doesn't want to get informed and deletes anything that isn't popular, I guess you know how well recommending emuparadise only went.I still vigorously stand by promoting obscure and less popular/ideal sites as long as they give out proper dumps.

The long winded 3DS decryption info is needed and relying on Citra's official site info exclusively isn't reasonable, they don't even admit decrypting on PC is possible and they promote decryption tools on real hardware that they break compat. with constantly (unless you use unofficial builds, but some autist is removing links for those, even the gpl compliant ones, for some reason). Tons of different opinions in their team, but some genuinely believe this would make the emulator a "piracy tool" and the status quo is the only good thing. Please restore that info here or somewhere else on this wiki just in case.

The page moving around thing is because I contributed on some sets that were later linked here, and around the time the page got hotlinked on external sites they started dying out while sets that were NOT linked were fine. Fuck doing corporate private eyes' job for them. Anyone familiar with the wiki will know where to get this and that's the original point.Dipswitch (talk) 00:53, 19 December 2017 (EST)

Sorry for the very late reply, but I'll respond to each. Wiiuiso is fine for that reasoning then, I simply removed since it's sole purpose was to provide Wii ISOs and Wii U, although after the wipe it just literally had a few threads. I understand you keeping it, since that's fine reasoning.
Also I was unaware about the issue with Citra. But honestly, fuck whoever keeps trying to switch around half the info given. I'm glad that page is locked. If you need to explain certain things that I possibly end up removing, feel free to leave something on my talk page telling me why you did it, that is if it doesn't fit in the summary :). Sorry for the somewhat rude exchange above, I was just kind of confused by you thinking of me coming off as a corporate scrooge or something. Anyway, take care.

About the ROMs page - 2/6/18[edit]

Whoa, what's the story behind the massive fuck-up edit? I'm out of the loop so I don't know if there's any weird drama going on.

"ROM/ISO Sites" is now hotlinked by external sites. There's an ongoing overhaul to this page precisely because of how much it's linked to elsewhere and to adress that need to the best interest of this wiki and the ressources within. The repeated links are a mistake, and a regrettable display of a lack of effort. I will fix that shortly. Check up the main page link in the meanwhile. Dipswitch (talk) 22:32, 7 February 2018 (EST)
Okay, carry on.
Yeah I was the one who reverted the repeated links thing. Glad there's a reason for all of that and and keep up the good work, that page is a really useful resource and it's looking better than ever. --ElizabethNoir (talk) 12:59, 9 February 2018 (EST)
