Hullo there Emptysora! Welcome to the Godwiki!
There wouldn't be any confrontation involved in adding yourself to Help:Requests, helpful new faces around the wiki are a pleasure to have! And if you're helping someone and encounter something that makes you worry, never fear, any other volunteer editor will be completely happy to help you figure out whatever's up.
We subscribe strongly to Being Bold around here. And in the event that something is undone, we always prefer to have a constructive, friendly discussion about it.
- I don’t exactly expect conflict to occur, it’s more the “what if” that makes me wary of confrontation—even if I know full well that it’s completely unfounded. Honestly, unexpectedly receiving a response like this has actually eased my nerves quite a bit in that regard, ironically. I guess I shall try to be bold as you say. Thanks.

- Glad to have you here, Emptysora, for as much or as little as you want to contribute.
slight side note, there's a space before the extension in the image, might we be able to move the image?
(From this edit comment.)
- In the template call, the
imageparameter says something like “Boogey Knight[space].jpg” I was just wondering if we could move File:Boogey Knight .jpg to File:Boogey Knight.jpg. We don’t have to, it just bugs me, as bad as that sounds, heh. — Emptysora (talk) 07:28, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately it's essentially impossible to keep diary time formats consistent, for many reasons! We don't have string parser functions, so we can't do it automatically, and so it depends entirely on where the person copied the diary entry from. The app and the desktop versions of Godville handle timestamps differently. And there's simply no way to communicate all these tiny little stylistic preferences to new contributors, at least not without scaring people off from contributing.
If we want things to be consistent, we either need to write very clever, very easy to use templates (which is often, but not always, possible), or just manually to in and make every little edit ourselves. (I've thought about writing a bot or two for the Godwiki, but normal bots are disabled, and writing a bot manually which can log in to Godvillegame.com, get the cookie, and then do what I'd want on the wiki using scraping and HTML GET and POST, well, it's more trouble than I've been bothered to do so far, heh.)
