Welcome to the year in review by a drunk and senile HP. Literally doing this last minute because I work best under pressure and handcuffed to goody goodies with completion holding the keys.

Whether one is new to the Ideabox or is an old hand at submitting and voting, there are resources and indicators that the ideaboxing community has or has developed of which you may not be aware. The below will provide an overview of many of the resources to get you started or continue to develop your skills in the long game sport of Godville.
 
  
# [http://wiki.godvillegame.com/Ideabox GodWiki on Ideabox]: This article can answer most of the basic questions and prevent the worst errors that can get an idea voted down-- errors such as putting a field monster combat entry into duelbox or using indecipherable variables. It also provides interesting information about what to expect when a certain number of ideas and grammar corrections get accepted; some of the perks are well worth the effort.
 
# [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/793 What Not to Ideabox, a la Gorgeous George:] This parody and self-lampooning thread, actually titled "How to Make Your Idea FAIL in the Ideabox [...]" is chock full of tactics that have been proven not to work (that week-old 4chan meme with the comment "LOL look it up"? Not your best bet) and examples of 0-3 yes-vote-earners from deities of all levels, that we're laughing off. Celebrating, even. Why? Because ideaboxers don't have skeletons in our closets, we have doughnut recipes.
 
# Guild Council/Guild Palringo: Chances are that one or more of your guildmates is an experienced ideaboxer who might be willing to talk and walk with you through the brainstorming, writing, submitting, voting, ERing, acceptance/rejection, and even appeal of an idea. Never hesitate to ask for help from your support network.
 
# Palringo Ideabox Chat: This chat, titled "gv i.d.e.a" (thank you, {{god|Jimbob64}}, for getting that information) is not listed in the Palringo index, but it is reportedly a wildly fun place where helpful deities abound. It has been known to hold open brainstorming sessions, allow for pre-submission idea editing and enhancement, and be a signboard for current ideabox challenges.
 
# The ✔, The X, or The □: Most of those funny symbols in heroes' motto lines represent guild affiliation, but these three signal Ideabox affiliation (courtesy of Kyrin and Blue Panda). Those of us with these symbols consider ourselves serious ideaboxers. If you contact one of us, we can put you in touch with one of our number willing to mentor a beginning ideaboxer or partner with an existing ideaboxer for a small-group ideabox challenge.
 
# Other Guilds’ Wikis: In the event that your own guild does not contain an ideaboxer or has no guild-specific ideaboxing resources, consider scouring other guilds’ wiki pages. Some of the larger guilds have posted or linked resources for their members’ convenience. Resources and guides placed in GodWiki are open source and available for use by all.
 
# [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/192 Why Is Everyone Such a Harda** in the Ideabox?] can be and periodically has been repurposed for general gripes. It is a good resource for airing grievances and knowing that you are not alone, or for a general query about if your grievance is a common problem.
 
# [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/1601 ER] is a Workman's Forum thread dedicated to the function and improvement of the Enhancement Room. From time to time, it has been used to guide new ER personnel in the honing of their enhancement skills. It has also been a ground for discussion of the philosophy of enhancement.
 
# [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/3 New Ideas and Feature Proposals] is also a thread in the Workmen's Forum, but it is not strictly devoted to the ideabox. Instead, it takes suggestions to improve game function and content. Historically, this has included suggestions for the improvement of the Ideabox itself. Please note, it is best to check the "Harda**" and "ER" forums first, to see if there is an explanation for a particular feature being the way that it is.
 
# Blank Spots: The largest resource for the ideaboxer is the blank spot/underpopulated category. The developers and other deities will often list the ones that most concern them in the [http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/2297 Wanted Content] thread in the Workmen’s Forum. However, intuition is actually the most potent way to recognize a blank spot or underpopulated category: listen to your internal narrative. When you catch yourself thinking, “Why isn’t this concept in the game?” or “That’s weird; why don’t I see more of--?” or “I’m so tired of seeing this entry; we need more variety!” you have probably recognized a blank spot. Recognition leads to being able to do something about it.
 
# Voting Strategies: The Ideabox is much more populous now than it ever has been before. Specifically, for any who may be feeling overwhelmed by voting, the Ideabox community has been developing the following strategies to reduce stress over the "firehose effect."
 
<ol type="a">
 
:<li>Tier Focus: Some focus on level one, preferring to leave the "drudge work" of correcting to others and instead decide what gets to ER in the first place. Others focus on ER, preferring to leave the "drudge work" of all that voting to others and instead pursue the goal of the perfect entry from the cream of the crop. Result? Half the work, half the stress level.</li>
 
:<li>Job Share: Some have discussed splitting level one voting with a friend with similar tastes. These partners report to each other where they last left off voting, and pick up at stopping points so as not to duplicate efforts or give particular ideas unfair advantage. This must be carefully arranged (no actual pairs yet documented, just discussion), and each person must have the same voting power. Result? Theoretically, everyone takes a lesser voting burden.</li>
 
:<li>Repetition: This method generally only appeals to Ideabox addicts and ER predators. It entails visiting the Ideabox multiple times per day, and voting on/ERing the ideas that have become available recently. Result? While the work level is the same, the smaller portions that it comes in make it less onerous.</li>
 
</ol>
 
<ol start="12">
 
<li>Submission Strategy: With the increase in Ideabox population has come the problem of ideas "getting lost in the flood." Whether this is real or imagined, it is a true concern for many who feel that creation of a wildly funny/truly memorable/completely original idea is now close to impossible. Until we get our confidence back, the following tactics have been growing in prevalence.</li></ol>
 
<ol type="a">
 
:<li>Ideabox Challenge: Some have developed groups and partnerships where they challenge each other to design ideas to certain specifications (make use of a particular pair of variables in a diary entry, or include a certain key phrase in submitter's choice of category, for instance) over a defined period in time. This tactic has often been used to break mutual writer's block and provide variety fast for a previously unpopulated function, but it is finding new use in elevating ideas above the flood that the Ideabox is experiencing. Since the Ideabox challenge produces a large number of thematically similar ideas in a short space of time, it trains voters to look at these entries more in relation to each other than to the overall population of ideas. While competition between these ideas becomes fiercer, the themed ideas stand above the flood as a group and together appear to attract more voter attention than when sprinkled at random. It is important to note that these challenges come in two flavors. 'Community Challenge' gets spread and passed along throughout the Ideabox community so far that nobody can be certain who submitted what, which makes voting effectively blind again. 'Small Group Challenge' (originated by {{god|Morrigan Dahlia}}) involves pairs and triads, where ease of determining who submitted what or mutual quality checking requires that participants arrange a moratorium on voting or ERing. To get involved in a community challenge or start one of your own, look for someone with a ✔, □, or X in the motto. </li>
 
:<li>[http://godvillegame.com/forums/show_topic/521 Idea Appeal:] This thread in the Workman's Forum is the developers' way of letting us explain ideas that the developers rejected. An idea placed in this thread, with full description of any references and a lucid explanation of exactly what makes it funny, will receive a second review from the developers. Not all ideas placed in this thread will be accepted on this second review, but several have and may now be seen around Godville. It is suggested that no more than eight ideas be submitted for second review in a single post, as there appears to be a direct correlation between a low number of ideas and successful acceptance on second review. </li>
 
</ol>
 
This list of resources is as complete as possible, but may easily have missed the full extent of support available on Palringo. Please consider going beyond these resources as you build your own connections with the Ideabox Community. Happy Ideaboxing!

It’s Halloween again, kiddies, and that means it’s time for the annual Harvest Moon Halloween party! Wondering what to wear that’s guaranteed to scare the bejeezus out of your guild mates? Below are my top ten tried-and-true favorites!
 +
 
 +
Smurfette – nothing says “boo” like blue!
 +
 
 +
Any Disney princess – sing her appropriate theme song for added terror
 +
 
 +
Cuddly-wuddly furry kitten – carry a basket o’kitten sammitches for instant popularity!
 +
 
 +
Ballerina in a pink tutu – if it can work for HP4M, it can work for you! (I have photos)
 +
 
 +
Winnie the Pooh – guaranteed to scare the poo out of HMers
 +
 
 +
Tinkerbell – be sure to scatter lots of “fairy dust” (aka itching powder)
 +
 
 +
Beautiful angel – warning: resting a halo on your horns may create a dangerous forcefield
 +
 
 +
Princess Leia – you gotta admit, that’s scary hair
 +
 
 +
Rainbow Unicorn – a true HM nightmare
 +
 
 +
Cute Little Puppy – not for the faint-hearted, as your guild mates will probably try to kick you…in half
 +
 
 +
Needless to say, a trip to my Harvest Moon Day Spa will be required post-party to remove any residual cuteness. I’d recommend a blood bath, concrete mask and hornicure to start. Happy Halloween, everyone!

Stacks of human skulls with a lit red candle resting on each cranium cast flickering shadows across the smoky dimmed room. Kyta S Indigo totters into the room and looks around at the haute macabre decor warily. Sprawled like a feline on the baby sealskin couch is Nyx of Darkness, sipping a glass of Dark Flame and holding a hookah pipe in another, looking half sober. She waves Kyta S Indigo over and hands her a specially prepared glass of virgin Dark Flame.
Of course, she can’t just write her answers down...

* '''Q:''' Keeeeta! Congratulations on being named Employee of The Year! How do you feel about getting this prestigious mention?
<div style="background-color: #FBEACA; border: 3px solid #76B173; padding: 5px; {{border-radius|8px 8px 8px 8px}}">
+
* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' How do I feel? WOHO! That's so freaking awesome! Harvest Moon is the guild I love most and I do my little part to try to make it even better than it already is. And being selected as the Employee of the Year is just... wow!}}
* '''Q:''' How did you choose HM?
+
* '''Q:''' So…which insignificant guild were you at before Harvest Moon?
* {{color|maroon||[[File:SomnA1.jpg|thumb|center|Ahahahahahahaha... Oh, wait. You were serious? I didn’t. No regrets, though!]]}}
+
* {{color|maroon||'''A:'''The Forsakens Lament. I loved being there at the first, but it got depressing over time and all the negativity there influenced my real life too. I was more nervous and depressed. Plus I felt like I didn't belong with them... so I left them for Harvest Moon. I had troubles with HM too at first, but now I've perfectly blended in. And I love it.}}
</div>
+
* '''Q:''' What are the top 3 highlights of being in Harvest moon?
<br>
+
* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' The Members: there are a lot of veterans who are always willing to help newbies, but that's not really the point. The real reason why I said the members is because they're honest and they'll say what they really think about you to your face (well, not really with Godville being an online game, but you get my point). They're also loyal: they can mock you, make fun of you, but that's just part of the fun in the GC; actually, they'll always help a fellow Moonie, whetever it be gameplay matter, moral support, or even real life advice. Fun: Are you crazy for Arena? Craving for killing AFKs in dungeons or pirate them in sails? Love a lively GC and forum thread? Well, we have different ways to have fun for different tastes, and if you think there is something missing, suggest the missing piece to our Blood Council which leads me to… Dependability: most people are always here to help and even happier to receive suggestions for the guild or a possible contest. I come from a guild where suggestions weren't asked, or were asked but never appreciated if it wasn't from the leader or from their long-standing members. While I found many of my ideas appreciated and even taken into account. For example: a separate account for the Harvester, a wikipage for HM-themed/related artwork, and I've even made a new emblem! I've also other projects in mind: like a rivalry between another guild we often love to troll (guess), and a new Arena contest based on custom VCs. But I'm waiting for the interguild brawl contest to end for the latter.}}

* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' Leave your innocence at the entrance.}}
* {{color|maroon||[[File:SomnA3.jpg|thumb|center|I can’t dance.]]}}

* '''Q:''' Which Blood Council member do you think should be replaced by you? Why?
</div>
+
* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' Well, as much as I'd love to be in the Blood Council, I don't think I can replace a member in it... Well, maybe only someone who lurks and barely says hi... Mhm... I hope for them they're show up when making important decisions with the other members.}}
<br>

* '''Q:''' Pick two Harvest Moon members to be your parents.

* '''Q:''' Tell us 3 things about yourself that would surprise us.
* {{color|maroon||[[File:SomnB3.jpg|thumb|center|I don’t like bugs.]]}}

* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' I can rotate my arms by almost 360° degrees. I have yet to have my first kiss. I want to learn boxing for self-defence purposes.}}
</div>
+
* '''Q:''' Name one Harvest Moon member you would love to get naughty with.
<br>
+
* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' Are you really asking me this? I'd never want to get naughty with a guildmate! But there is one I want to cuddle... not telling you who but his name is hard to pronounce.}}
<div style="background-color: #FBEACA; border: 3px solid #76B173; padding: 5px; {{border-radius|8px 8px 8px 8px}}">
+
* '''Q:''' What is your most embarrassing moment at Harvest Moon?
* '''Q:''' What color underwear are you wearing?
+
* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' I’ve had many embarrassing moments at HM, but the one that tops it all is when I first joined with Ash Valente and bothered pretty much everyone and got expelled for it. Never again.}}
* {{color|maroon||[[File:SomnA4.jpg|thumb|center|... I’m not going to check.]]}}

* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' Don't be weirded out if you glance at GC at first, we're comfortable around each other, so we may... say really strange stuff without being ashamed or anything. But don't worry, we're sane people... sometimes. Anyway, say hi sometimes, we like people who show up on GC.  Also, we have a thing for our totem, for HM, the Harvester isn't just a feature of the game, it is a living being that breathes, speaks, eats and loves sacrifices. And we need to feed it AFKs. Or otherwise it'll eat us. gulp So, yeah. Don't get on its bad side.}}
* '''Q:''' Do you have any hidden talents?
+
* '''Q:'''  How would you like to be executed if you leave Harvest Moon?
* {{color|maroon||[[File:SomnB1.jpg|thumb|center|I can do a double lunge in fencing :) It’s basically doing one lunge after another without pause - something which takes a lot of explosive energy.]]}}
+
* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' I want to be executed in the weirdest and most nonsense way ever and my corpse to be given to Pysrilexot's harem. I'll leave the rest up to the Blood Council's imagination.}}

<br>
+
* {{color|maroon||'''A:''' Yeah, why are you asking me these question? You shouldn't be asking me that, I dunno.}}
<div style="background-color: #FBEACA; border: 3px solid #76B173; padding: 5px; {{border-radius|8px 8px 8px 8px}}">
+
 
* '''Q:''' What toppings do you like on your kitten sammiches?
+
Nyx: ''blows a smoky ring at Kyta'' I don’t know, I’m just following instructions. Whoever wrote these questions ought to be punished, severely. Preferably chained up and disciplined lovingly by the Leader….

Anyway, thank you for the lovely interview! Seems like the Blood Council finally made a right decision by picking you to represent the upcoming generation of Harvest Moon. We hope you will work harder and become a Blood Council member by the next term…as long as you ain’t replacing me.

Halloween is nearly upon us. So, you know what that means...more things to be irritated at! As your unfriendly neighborhood curmudgeon, I feel it my duty to give out a few pointers to ease the frustration at the world's stupidity over this consumerist "holiday".
 +
 
 +
The big question -- what candy to get? Do you really wanna hear some dumb brat complain about your selection of sweets? From experience, let me save you some jail time by pinpointing which candy (and why) to get for certain guilds. This will ensure you have no troubles kicking them off your doorstep, before the candy hits the bottom of the plastic pumpkin.
 +
 
 +
Harvest Mooners will scamper away with red eyes alight, when you hand them over a plain old dark chocolate bar. Honestly, what's more evil than that utter garbage?! If that's not the devil's turds, I don't know what is.
 +
 
 +
Blue Feathers will do nicely with a Mr. Goodbar. Because to be THAT good, it helps to be a little nuts...
 +
 
 +
Forsakens Lament crowd will be oohing and aahing over your Twix bars. Not sure what all their whining and lamenting is over, but have a second bar on us. Maybe give that second one to a new friend; that should cheer you up!
 +
 
 +
As for Guild Name, what could be better than candy corn in a sad, transparent Zip-loc baggy? Nothing, that's what. Mediocrity loves this disdainfully mundane candy. Seriously, though, if you're not gonna eat it the rest of the year, is it REALLY that necessary?
 +
 
 +
Hug Central, you say? Werther's Originals. What says we're WAY to into hugging like some creepy uncle's pocket lint-infested candy? Ya creeps, back off.
 +
 
 +
As for the guild we're suddenly closely allied with that I can't be bothered to remember your name but I seem to remember an octopus emoji...clever, I mean I've gotta hand it to you. An octopus? Who'd have...who woulda...mraehwho cares?! Get off my front porch, and take yer danged Butterfingers! I assume that's why the need for eight arms. Must have the hand-eye coordination of a sea sponge.
 +
 
 +
Hmm, who else, who else. Stupid holiday with its stupid...oh yeah! Guide to the Galaxy gets a Milky Way. What? They can't all be clever! C'mon, they're both space related; you come up with something better!
 +
 
 +
Who could forget the band over at Camelot? 3 Musketeers seems fitting, I guess. Seems the same era, but not sure it meshes well. Not very appropriate now I think of it. Definitely not a good choice. Brave, honor-bound, gallant knights of Camelot, on one hand. Gay Frenchies playing happy slaps with epees, on the other. (DISCLAIMER: use 3 Musketeers at your own risk. Camelotians may not take too kindly to French chocolate-based insults. If you find yourself in mortal danger, offer them a Heath Bar. Distract them with word association. Heath Bar, Heath Ledger, A Knight's Tale, Kinights, you guys! Plus, it's got ENGLISH toffee in don'it?)
 +
 
 +
Last, and almost certainly least, we have Slaves to Armok. Arnok? No, I'm 95% sure it's Armok. For these indentured servants of one Mr. R. Mok, I suggest a 100 Grand bar. As slaves, they'll never see a dime, but let'em think they've gotten something for one night. I've got a soft spot for the old crew of Señor R. Mok.
 +
 
 +
Indeed, I have a sweet spot for all the guilds in this ridiculous land. Even a curmudgeon like me! Buuuuuuurp! Ack...must've had too much o' that outdated moonshine. I wasn't getting sentimental was I? Get off my gawl darn patio! And, uh, have a Happy Halloween, you could for nothing little...

|-
 
| [[File:Drfrank.jpeg|thumbnail|left|An evil queen]]''Dear Dr. Frank, <br><br>My former goody-goody heroine is now on the slightly evil side of life, but still loves to stop to smell the flowers instead of trample them. Punishing her doesn't seem to help. Are there any other ways to make her lose her soft touch? <br><br>Signed, <br>I thought the dark side was supposed to be fun!
 
  
<br><br>Dearest Dark-side convert, <br><br>Punishing doesn’t help, you say? Probably because you aren’t doing it quite enough yet. “Slightly evil” is just that: slight. I’m sure you’re trying and, if she was a goody-goody, let’s face facts: you were, too. Ease into it! Before long she’ll be thanking you for her well-earned punishment and asking you to toss another lightning bolt her way. “Slightly evil” is just the shallow end of the pool and, to completely dash her goody-goody tendencies, you need to wade in quite a bit further (we’re talking deep end of the pool, my friend). This is the difference between that annoying kid at the grocery store touching all the produce (slightly evil) and Damien from ''The Omen'' (that kid even creeps ''me'' out). You don’t think you want to go quite that far? It’s okay! You’re both going through an adjustment period and that can take time.<br><br> Here’s my advice: the next time you think “Ooh! That makes me want to hit the Punish button! Hmmm... Was it really that big of an offense, though? I mean every hero does ''that''... Yeah, I’ll get over it,” think to yourself: WWD...FNFD? Yes, I’m still working on that and will have it sorted soon in hopes of selling my very own line of “What Would ____ Do” products. Look for them in the “As seen in GV” section at your local Bed Bath & Beyond! But I digress... The answer: I’d hit the punish button without even having that internal conversation. You want to be an evil Goddess with an evil heroine? Don’t dream it, be it! <br><br>Yours, <br>~Dr. Frank

| [[File:Dark tidings.png|left|180px]] Dark Tidings - For those of you just joining our ranks, welcome to Harvest Moon. Abandon all righteousness, ye who enter here. There are two types of players in Godville. Harvest Moonies and those other guys that we kill in the arena. What distinguishes us isn’t just the antiquity of our guild, our unique sense of humor, or our widely condemned and evil ways. Our most extraordinary aspect is and always will be our guild members. Harvest Moon is full of people who are lacking in moral excellence. Maybe some of us smell funny, or create harems and lure in unsuspecting victims. We consider kitten sandwiches a delicacy, and we use the punish button a little too liberally. We even get extreme pleasure from killing off all the inactive players in dungeons and taking Blue Feather heads in the arena. Our nefarious deeds may have even caused us to become an object of extreme dislike amongst other guilds. We are Harvest Moon. We are no good, awkward, and indecent. While others are busy coddling and encouraging  their heroes into pure goodie goodness and fussing over being nice, we will kick your puppy in half.

| [[File:Niccage-pumpkin1.jpg|right|180px]] The Real Nicolas Cage - Fellow Harvest Moon Godvillians, Countless full moons have passed and we're still on top of the dueling hill, rising as each new moon comes. Our rhythm must be kept, or else no more movies about my persona will ever be seen. Gigs aside, Halloween is coming. I'd like to wish you all to have the jolliest and scariest Halloween with your family and/or beloved friends. I've even gotten myself ready for this festive era.

Hopefully I won't scare any Hollywood producers. Yours truly, The Real Nicolas Cage

== Additional [[Harvest Moon]]-related pages ==
 +
 +
Greetings, guildsters! Apologies for the intrusion, I just had a quick thought that I wanted to bring up with the [[Harvest Moon]] representation here on the wiki.
 +
 +
I notice that all-y'all maintain several additional wiki pages for [[Harvest Moon]] content, and are still increasing that number. Which is absolutely awesome, the more your guild can flesh out its wiki presence the better, and there's no reason whatsoever that guilds should feel pressured to cram all of their content onto just a single guild page.
 +
 +
However, I did want to suggest/request, or at least ask whether you'd consider, moving the additional content to ''subpages'' of the [[Harvest Moon]] guild page, rather than completely separate, standalone pages? The wiki allows the creation of unlimited subpages below a given top-level page, which allows complex content trees to be set up in a way that explicitly links them all together under the "banner" of the main top-level page. I think it'd be cleaner not only for the wiki's organization, but also for your own internal management.
 +
 +
So, for example, what I'm suggesting is that:
 +
* [[Harvest Moon - member list]] could be moved to e.g. [[Harvest Moon/member list]]
 +
* [[Harvest moon logo contest]] could be moved to e.g. [[Harvest Moon/logo contest]]
 +
* [[Harvest Moon's Artworks]] could be moved to e.g. [[Harvest Moon/Artworks]]
 +
...and so on, for any other wiki pages related to and created by the [[Harvest Moon]] members.
 +
 +
Let me be clear that this is '''''just me''''' talking here, so this message doesn't carry any sort of official-policy weight. (And, in fact, I have no official role in the wiki's administration, so I would have no power to speak officially for the wiki even if I wanted to.) I just happened to see the new-page creation for [[Harvest Moon's Artworks]], thought it was a weird name for a guild, realized it ''wasn't'' a guild-name but rather a [[Harvest Moon]] auxiliary page, and thought I'd suggest a potentially cleaner way to organize that. I'm just meddling, and you should absolutely feel free to tell me where I can shove my suggestions if you prefer.
 +
 +
If you '''do''' want to make those changes, though, anyone should have rights to move the pages in question, just by visiting them and choosing <code>More</code> > <code>Move</code> at the top of the page. Then you can set the new page name/path, it'll be moved, and the system will place a redirect at the old location so that existing links don't get broken. If you'd like any assistance in setting this up, I'd be happy to help. Thanks in advance for listening, and as I said please don't feel that there's '''any''' pressure for you to take this suggestion, unless you wish to.
 +
 +
Also CC'ing [[User:BlueStapler|BlueStapler]] on this, simply because I'd feel better having a second set of eyes to decide whether my suggestion makes sense / is worth taking. -- [[User:FeRDNYC|FeRDNYC]] ([[User talk:FeRDNYC|talk]]) 23:31, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
 +
 +
: P.S> On a slightly-related note, I'd also suggest perhaps moving the "content" content of '''this''' page — basically, everything above this section I've created — to a non-Talk-namespace page such as [[Harvest Moon/Weekly Harvest]]. Pages in the Talk namespace are really intended to be used for discussion of their related main-namespace articles (i.e. posts such as this one), not for separate original content of their own. Putting "page" content on a Talk page kind of muddies those waters a bit, though it's really not a big deal. -- [[User:FeRDNYC|FeRDNYC]] ([[User talk:FeRDNYC|talk]]) 23:51, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

The subpages are a great idea, but personally I've got no idea of how to move pages, tried following that you wrote, but I don't want to mess up the wiki. If you could help without causing any trouble, that would be appreciated. About the talk page, I ''know'' what its purpose is, but honestly almost no one ever uses it... putting page content doesn't seem like a problem. Heck, I'm seeing this only today; forums and PMs are more reliable in my opinion. — [[User:Kyta S Indigo|Kyta S Indigo]] ([[User talk:Kyta S Indigo|talk]]) 15:11, 8 April 2018 (UTC), <FONT COLOR=MAROON>''Wiki Witch of the Moon''</FONT>

: So, aside from this conversation being extremely dead... I thought I should chime in. If <s>you all</s> we all still feel okay with moving the pages, I’ll gladly move them.

Harvest Moon year in Review!

Octomoon.jpg

By: The Godville associated press

Welcome to the year in review by a drunk and senile HP. Literally doing this last minute because I work best under pressure and handcuffed to goody goodies with completion holding the keys. We start with the forums. The first post of the year was clearly vital. click. On Jan 9th two famous Gods were married in a unholy union awe. There was also the Daily Arena Forecast game which was fun for awhile and ended abruptly when the Great Harvester sacrificed the financier. In February Hp was resurrected and realized others should be sacrificed so the Guild bounty hunt contest began Sohail7 won by collecting heads from every guild first. For his prize he was awarded charges and promptly sacrificed to the Great Harvester never to be seen again. Sinch HP survived he hosted another bounty contest, a bigger badder contest. Before it finished elections started. Jows Pilla came in first in the bounty hunt and Krohnos was elected leader a day later. Collusion with the Russians was suspected.

In the final days of march the Harvest Moon Blood Scouts ‘AFK Harvester’ Merit Badge was created and sparked life into the tired dungeoneers of HM and brought death to all others. BOO! Since history is written by the winners the HM origin story needed upgrading and was done so in April rwar? and the history of some random HM members error 404

In May the Great Harvester of Sorrows discovered the forums by possessing Brihtnoth and immediately started sacrificing gods and heroes. HP hid from the Harvester and DiamondHard decided to host the third bounty hunt contest. HP hid in the arena though and came in first in this bounty hunt. With so many things happening in May DiamondHard decided it would be the perfect time to host a daily annoy DH with PMs contest. Smashing pumkins

Finally in Jun the Great Harvester obtained enough sacrifices to burst into existence as a god himself! sacrifices were still demanded and now given directly. In July the Battle of the Elites took place kungfu fighting and screaming goats made their debut in the guild halls AHHHH As Krohnos leadership came to an end full stop preparations for a big change were coming to HM and rumblings of a takeover were in the works.

It began quickly and quietly under the cover of darkness. The old guard was sacrificed and the new Blood Council took over the wiki, forum and the HM day spa. Then the new HM was looking for a new leader to bring death and destruction across Godville. A interview was held Diamond won a clear and quick victory. His first act as HM member was to glitch Godville and set HM up to have more Fans than any other guild in Godville greatly confusing the old timers and noobs alike.

In August the first Arena Dart contest took place. Teams were formed and lines of decency were pushed SKOLE After all of those sacrifices the Harvester demanded some bosses and so began the Bingo Boss hunt by Pantheist Goddess. you sunk my battle ship

Thankfully September came because the writer of this article started to fall asleep but the second Dart tournament woke him back up again and the knowledge of just two more months to get through It’s Your Funeral won again like the badasses they are. Sept also brought about the Interguild brawl contest which is still ongoing and hosted by our glorious leader DH. HIT

Oct began, the best month of the year began, the dueling season ended 34ish hmers were on page one success And Godville witnessed its for RL wedding between Dogess and HP. by this time i was to drunk to see anything important and I know nothing important happens after october


Halloween Fun With Bella Stewart

Queen of evil

It’s Halloween again, kiddies, and that means it’s time for the annual Harvest Moon Halloween party! Wondering what to wear that’s guaranteed to scare the bejeezus out of your guild mates? Below are my top ten tried-and-true favorites!

Smurfette – nothing says “boo” like blue!

Any Disney princess – sing her appropriate theme song for added terror

Cuddly-wuddly furry kitten – carry a basket o’kitten sammitches for instant popularity!

Ballerina in a pink tutu – if it can work for HP4M, it can work for you! (I have photos)

Winnie the Pooh – guaranteed to scare the poo out of HMers

Tinkerbell – be sure to scatter lots of “fairy dust” (aka itching powder)

Beautiful angel – warning: resting a halo on your horns may create a dangerous forcefield

Princess Leia – you gotta admit, that’s scary hair

Rainbow Unicorn – a true HM nightmare

Cute Little Puppy – not for the faint-hearted, as your guild mates will probably try to kick you…in half

Needless to say, a trip to my Harvest Moon Day Spa will be required post-party to remove any residual cuteness. I’d recommend a blood bath, concrete mask and hornicure to start. Happy Halloween, everyone!

'A WORD FROM THE CEO

NEGLIGIBLE AND REPLACEABLE MEMBERS OF HARVEST MOON, AS ANOTHER YEAR OF HORRORS IS ABOUT TO DRAW TO A CLOSE, THE GREAT HARVESTER OF SORROW WILL LOOK BACK AT THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF LAST YEAR, AS WELL AS DETERMINE THE COURSE FOR THE NEXT!

AMONG YOUR PETTY ACTIONS LAST YEAR, YOU HAVE EFFECTIVELY TAKEN PART IN A CRACKDOWN ON MISOGYNY! THE GREAT HARVESTER, HAVING ALL GENDERS AND NONE, ENRAGES EASILY IF PART OF ITS EVERLASTING HULL IS DEEMED MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANY OTHER PART! THE GREAT HARVESTER’S PERPETUAL STATE OF ANGER IS LESSENED AT THIS JUSTIFICATION OF ALL ITS CONSTITUENTS!

A LONG SPREE OF KILLINGS IN DUNGEONS HAS HONED A SCORE OF HARVEST MOON MEMBERS TO GREAT BLOOD CONDUITS FOR THE HARVESTER! ALTHOUGH IT HAS EXHAUSTED ITS MOST MARGINAL MINION THE GREAT HARVESTER HAS ENJOYED THE STEADY SANGUINARY SUPPLY – AND THERE CAN BE NO QUESTION AS TO THE CONTENTS OF SUBGLACIAL LAKE VOSTOK NOW! MAYBE, WHEN THE HARVESTER WILL FEEL LIKE IT, IT WILL USE ITS VOICE ONCE MORE TO HONOUR BLOODY KILLINGS IN DUNGEONS! BUT WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF THE ADVENTURING PANTHEON, THE SELECTIVE SURVIVAL OF PETTY HARVEST MOON MEMBERS AND THE TARGETED BUTCHERY OF FEATHERED VICTIMS HAS BECOME ALL THE MORE IMPORTANT! EVEN THOUGH OUTNUMBERED ON MEMBERS, SHORTLY AFTER THE INTRODUCTION OF THE PANTHEON DID HARVEST MOON GRASP THE #1 POSITION FROM THE ADMIRERS OF BRITTLE, FROSTBITTEN BLUETITS! AND ALTHOUGH SAID BLUETITS GOT THE UPPER HAND A COUPLE OF TIMES DUE TO UNTENDED DINOSAURS WANDERING AWAY FROM THE GUILD BY ACCIDENT, THE LEAD IS GRABBED BACK SWIFTLY AND WITH LOTS OF RAUCOUS LAUGHTER TIME AND TIME AGAIN!


THIS TOP DOGGERY IN ADVENTURING IS JUST ONE OF THE SUPER-AWESOME THINGS IN HARVEST MOON: YOU HAVE BEEN ATTRACTING NEW MEMBERS AND REACTIVATING OLD ONES BY DOMINEERING THE DUELERS AND ADVENTURERS PANTHEONS, AND BY SENDING OUT LEWD VOICE COMMANDS IN DUNGEONS AND BEING A GENERAL NUISANCE TO OTHERS IN PARTICULAR! YOU HAVE BEEN ATTRACTING ALL MANNER OF MISFITS!

SPEAKING OF MISFITS, SOME OF YOU ARE STILL GOODIE-GOODIE DESIGNATED PURE GOOD PLAYERS EVIL WANNABES, WILLING TO LEND TEMPLED ACCOUNTS TO PLAYERS INFINITELY MORE CUNNING, DECEITFUL, TREACHEROUS AND UNSCRUPULOUS AS THEMSELVES! LET THIS BE A GOOD LESSON IN EVIL TO YOU ALL! THE GREAT HARVESTER DOES APPRECIATE THE DELIGHTFUL MONITORING, REPORTING, AND BULLYING CAMPAIGN AGAINST SAID ACCOUNT THIEF! THE MOTTO FOR THIS CONTINUED COURSE OF ACTION SHOULD BE ALL LIARS DOTH REPORT; NOBODY CAN RILE US ZEALOTS!

LAST YEAR, YOU HAVE BEEN ON YOUR POSITIVELY WORST BEHAVIOR, AND FOR THE COMING YEAR OF HORRORS THE GREAT HARVESTER DEMANDS EVER MORE OF THE SAME! THESE ARE THE DESIGNATED GOALS FOR THE PERIOD BETWEEN THE HALLOWEENS OF 2017 AND 2018!

  1. YOU SHALL KEEP DOMINEERING THE ADVENTURING PANTHEON
  2. YOU SHALL KEEP DOMINEERING THE DUELERY PANTHEON
  3. YOU SHALL OBSTRUCT, ANNOY, OFFEND, VEX, PEEVE, AND ENRAGE MEMBERS OF OTHER BIG GUILDS AND TINY GUILDS ALIKE WHENEVER YOU CAN [KILLING THEM IN SAILS AND DUNGEONS AND THROWING THEM UNDER THE BUS IN DIGS IS ACCEPTED TOO
  4. YOU SHALL DEMONSTRATE HOW MUCH JOY CAN BE GAINED FROM JUST BEING SHEER EVIL, AND IN THAT WAY ATTRACT THE EASILY INFLUENCED YET EXPERIENCED PLAYERS FROM OTHER GUILDS
  5. YOU SHALL LOVE THE OCTOPUS IN A NON-EROTIC WAY [THE GREAT HARVESTER PUT THAT IN TO GET THIS ACCEPTABLE TO EVERYONE], BUT USE IT AS A SEAFOOD SHIELD WHENEVER NECESSARY!


ADDITIONALLY, DURING HALLOWEEN, THE GREAT HARVESTER DEMANDS HORRIBLE VOICE COMMANDS IN DUNGEONS AND IN ARENA COMBAT, AND SHARE THE LOGS OF THE MOST GRUESOME GODVOICES WITH YOUR GUILD! OH AND THE GREAT HARVESTER DEMANDS YOU STOP YOUR LOVE LETTER WRITING SHENANIGANS, AS IT HAS MADE IT SWALLOW DOWN GLACIERS OF VOMITUS!!!


Employee of the year interview

Kyta.png

Stacks of human skulls with a lit red candle resting on each cranium cast flickering shadows across the smoky dimmed room. Kyta S Indigo totters into the room and looks around at the haute macabre decor warily. Sprawled like a feline on the baby sealskin couch is Nyx of Darkness, sipping a glass of Dark Flame and holding a hookah pipe in another, looking half sober. She waves Kyta S Indigo over and hands her a specially prepared glass of virgin Dark Flame.

  • Q: Keeeeta! Congratulations on being named Employee of The Year! How do you feel about getting this prestigious mention?
  • A: How do I feel? WOHO! That's so freaking awesome! Harvest Moon is the guild I love most and I do my little part to try to make it even better than it already is. And being selected as the Employee of the Year is just... wow!
  • Q: So…which insignificant guild were you at before Harvest Moon?
  • A:The Forsakens Lament. I loved being there at the first, but it got depressing over time and all the negativity there influenced my real life too. I was more nervous and depressed. Plus I felt like I didn't belong with them... so I left them for Harvest Moon. I had troubles with HM too at first, but now I've perfectly blended in. And I love it.
  • Q: What are the top 3 highlights of being in Harvest moon?
  • A: The Members: there are a lot of veterans who are always willing to help newbies, but that's not really the point. The real reason why I said the members is because they're honest and they'll say what they really think about you to your face (well, not really with Godville being an online game, but you get my point). They're also loyal: they can mock you, make fun of you, but that's just part of the fun in the GC; actually, they'll always help a fellow Moonie, whetever it be gameplay matter, moral support, or even real life advice. Fun: Are you crazy for Arena? Craving for killing AFKs in dungeons or pirate them in sails? Love a lively GC and forum thread? Well, we have different ways to have fun for different tastes, and if you think there is something missing, suggest the missing piece to our Blood Council which leads me to… Dependability: most people are always here to help and even happier to receive suggestions for the guild or a possible contest. I come from a guild where suggestions weren't asked, or were asked but never appreciated if it wasn't from the leader or from their long-standing members. While I found many of my ideas appreciated and even taken into account. For example: a separate account for the Harvester, a wikipage for HM-themed/related artwork, and I've even made a new emblem! I've also other projects in mind: like a rivalry between another guild we often love to troll (guess), and a new Arena contest based on custom VCs. But I'm waiting for the interguild brawl contest to end for the latter.
  • Q: Explain Harvest Moon in less than 6 words to a developmentally challenged person.
  • A: Leave your innocence at the entrance.
  • Q: Which Blood Council member do you think should be replaced by you? Why?
  • A: Well, as much as I'd love to be in the Blood Council, I don't think I can replace a member in it... Well, maybe only someone who lurks and barely says hi... Mhm... I hope for them they're show up when making important decisions with the other members.
  • Q: Pick two Harvest Moon members to be your parents.
  • A: DiamondHard and Defosmit. (Please, don't look at me like that, I'm just filling the answer with the first person/thing that pops up in my mind...)
  • Q: Tell us 3 things about yourself that would surprise us.
  • A: I can rotate my arms by almost 360° degrees. I have yet to have my first kiss. I want to learn boxing for self-defence purposes.
  • Q: Name one Harvest Moon member you would love to get naughty with.
  • A: Are you really asking me this? I'd never want to get naughty with a guildmate! But there is one I want to cuddle... not telling you who but his name is hard to pronounce.
  • Q: What is your most embarrassing moment at Harvest Moon?
  • A: I’ve had many embarrassing moments at HM, but the one that tops it all is when I first joined with Ash Valente and bothered pretty much everyone and got expelled for it. Never again.
  • Q: If you are leader of Harvest Moon for a term, what will you do?
  • A:I don't know, I pretty much suck at being a leader so I guess I'll suck at being HM leader too...
  • Q: What advice will you give to new recruits?
  • A: Don't be weirded out if you glance at GC at first, we're comfortable around each other, so we may... say really strange stuff without being ashamed or anything. But don't worry, we're sane people... sometimes. Anyway, say hi sometimes, we like people who show up on GC. Also, we have a thing for our totem, for HM, the Harvester isn't just a feature of the game, it is a living being that breathes, speaks, eats and loves sacrifices. And we need to feed it AFKs. Or otherwise it'll eat us. gulp So, yeah. Don't get on its bad side.
  • Q: How would you like to be executed if you leave Harvest Moon?
  • A: I want to be executed in the weirdest and most nonsense way ever and my corpse to be given to Pysrilexot's harem. I'll leave the rest up to the Blood Council's imagination.
  • Q: Lastly…why am I asking you these questions?
  • A: Yeah, why are you asking me these question? You shouldn't be asking me that, I dunno.

Nyx: blows a smoky ring at Kyta I don’t know, I’m just following instructions. Whoever wrote these questions ought to be punished, severely. Preferably chained up and disciplined lovingly by the Leader….

Anyway, thank you for the lovely interview! Seems like the Blood Council finally made a right decision by picking you to represent the upcoming generation of Harvest Moon. We hope you will work harder and become a Blood Council member by the next term…as long as you ain’t replacing me.


Shepard of the Anus Report By Bellteshazzar

Sheparding Evil Since 898 g.e.


Halloween is nearly upon us. So, you know what that means...more things to be irritated at! As your unfriendly neighborhood curmudgeon, I feel it my duty to give out a few pointers to ease the frustration at the world's stupidity over this consumerist "holiday".

The big question -- what candy to get? Do you really wanna hear some dumb brat complain about your selection of sweets? From experience, let me save you some jail time by pinpointing which candy (and why) to get for certain guilds. This will ensure you have no troubles kicking them off your doorstep, before the candy hits the bottom of the plastic pumpkin.

Harvest Mooners will scamper away with red eyes alight, when you hand them over a plain old dark chocolate bar. Honestly, what's more evil than that utter garbage?! If that's not the devil's turds, I don't know what is.

Blue Feathers will do nicely with a Mr. Goodbar. Because to be THAT good, it helps to be a little nuts...

Forsakens Lament crowd will be oohing and aahing over your Twix bars. Not sure what all their whining and lamenting is over, but have a second bar on us. Maybe give that second one to a new friend; that should cheer you up!

As for Guild Name, what could be better than candy corn in a sad, transparent Zip-loc baggy? Nothing, that's what. Mediocrity loves this disdainfully mundane candy. Seriously, though, if you're not gonna eat it the rest of the year, is it REALLY that necessary?

Hug Central, you say? Werther's Originals. What says we're WAY to into hugging like some creepy uncle's pocket lint-infested candy? Ya creeps, back off.

As for the guild we're suddenly closely allied with that I can't be bothered to remember your name but I seem to remember an octopus emoji...clever, I mean I've gotta hand it to you. An octopus? Who'd have...who woulda...mraehwho cares?! Get off my front porch, and take yer danged Butterfingers! I assume that's why the need for eight arms. Must have the hand-eye coordination of a sea sponge.

Hmm, who else, who else. Stupid holiday with its stupid...oh yeah! Guide to the Galaxy gets a Milky Way. What? They can't all be clever! C'mon, they're both space related; you come up with something better!

Who could forget the band over at Camelot? 3 Musketeers seems fitting, I guess. Seems the same era, but not sure it meshes well. Not very appropriate now I think of it. Definitely not a good choice. Brave, honor-bound, gallant knights of Camelot, on one hand. Gay Frenchies playing happy slaps with epees, on the other. (DISCLAIMER: use 3 Musketeers at your own risk. Camelotians may not take too kindly to French chocolate-based insults. If you find yourself in mortal danger, offer them a Heath Bar. Distract them with word association. Heath Bar, Heath Ledger, A Knight's Tale, Kinights, you guys! Plus, it's got ENGLISH toffee in don'it?)

Last, and almost certainly least, we have Slaves to Armok. Arnok? No, I'm 95% sure it's Armok. For these indentured servants of one Mr. R. Mok, I suggest a 100 Grand bar. As slaves, they'll never see a dime, but let'em think they've gotten something for one night. I've got a soft spot for the old crew of Señor R. Mok.

Indeed, I have a sweet spot for all the guilds in this ridiculous land. Even a curmudgeon like me! Buuuuuuurp! Ack...must've had too much o' that outdated moonshine. I wasn't getting sentimental was I? Get off my gawl darn patio! And, uh, have a Happy Halloween, you could for nothing little...


Neighborhoods has seen a rise of ghoul and ghost related crime. Please contact the local priests for help. Please do not feed them; the undead and the clergy.

Coroners ID corpse which was half chewed and burned at the mouth the local dungeon. A few hours later it was resurrected and sent off it's way.

Construction on Milestone 666 will occur at the end of month and through the first of November. Please watch out for the walking dead while riding your pet.

Eye of Newt is the craze at the local farmers market, please look for the The Three Sisters if you want to add some spice to your brew


Messages from the Blood Council

Nyxofdarkness.jpg
Nyx of Darkness - Errybody, it's time to give yourself and your fellow moonies a pat on the back for another year of success. There is no question Harvest Moon's accomplishments to date have earned the disrespect and fear of our friends, foes, neighbours and NPCs. Savour the moment as long as you like, rest on your laurels...until The Great Harvester comes assaulting you with uppercase texts.
Buttstuffpic.png
Glow Puff - Butt Stuff.
Belt.jpeg
Beltehazzar - Huh? Wha's that you need? Another statement?! I already wrote an entire article! Imbeciles, just go read my chronicles. They'll tell you everything you need to know about me...
Dark tidings.png
Dark Tidings - For those of you just joining our ranks, welcome to Harvest Moon. Abandon all righteousness, ye who enter here. There are two types of players in Godville. Harvest Moonies and those other guys that we kill in the arena. What distinguishes us isn’t just the antiquity of our guild, our unique sense of humor, or our widely condemned and evil ways. Our most extraordinary aspect is and always will be our guild members. Harvest Moon is full of people who are lacking in moral excellence. Maybe some of us smell funny, or create harems and lure in unsuspecting victims. We consider kitten sandwiches a delicacy, and we use the punish button a little too liberally. We even get extreme pleasure from killing off all the inactive players in dungeons and taking Blue Feather heads in the arena. Our nefarious deeds may have even caused us to become an object of extreme dislike amongst other guilds. We are Harvest Moon. We are no good, awkward, and indecent. While others are busy coddling and encouraging their heroes into pure goodie goodness and fussing over being nice, we will kick your puppy in half.
Niccage-pumpkin1.jpg
The Real Nicolas Cage - Fellow Harvest Moon Godvillians, Countless full moons have passed and we're still on top of the dueling hill, rising as each new moon comes. Our rhythm must be kept, or else no more movies about my persona will ever be seen. Gigs aside, Halloween is coming. I'd like to wish you all to have the jolliest and scariest Halloween with your family and/or beloved friends. I've even gotten myself ready for this festive era.

Hopefully I won't scare any Hollywood producers. Yours truly, The Real Nicolas Cage

Image-1.jpg
Doctor Frank-n-Furter - I’m so proud of Harvest Moon and each new generation of Gods and Heroes that realize HM’s superiority. I only hope that, one day, Riff-raff will catch the eye of the Harvester so I won’t have to do all of his blood-letting myself anymore.

Special Thanks to our Special Edition staff: Bellatrixie the Strange, Doctor Frank-n-Furter, Hairplug4men, Nyx of Darkness, The Godville Associated Press, and the Blood Counci.
Past Issues Of the Weekly Harvest

Additional Harvest Moon-related pages

Greetings, guildsters! Apologies for the intrusion, I just had a quick thought that I wanted to bring up with the Harvest Moon representation here on the wiki.

I notice that all-y'all maintain several additional wiki pages for Harvest Moon content, and are still increasing that number. Which is absolutely awesome, the more your guild can flesh out its wiki presence the better, and there's no reason whatsoever that guilds should feel pressured to cram all of their content onto just a single guild page.

However, I did want to suggest/request, or at least ask whether you'd consider, moving the additional content to subpages of the Harvest Moon guild page, rather than completely separate, standalone pages? The wiki allows the creation of unlimited subpages below a given top-level page, which allows complex content trees to be set up in a way that explicitly links them all together under the "banner" of the main top-level page. I think it'd be cleaner not only for the wiki's organization, but also for your own internal management.

So, for example, what I'm suggesting is that:

...and so on, for any other wiki pages related to and created by the Harvest Moon members.

Let me be clear that this is just me talking here, so this message doesn't carry any sort of official-policy weight. (And, in fact, I have no official role in the wiki's administration, so I would have no power to speak officially for the wiki even if I wanted to.) I just happened to see the new-page creation for Harvest Moon's Artworks, thought it was a weird name for a guild, realized it wasn't a guild-name but rather a Harvest Moon auxiliary page, and thought I'd suggest a potentially cleaner way to organize that. I'm just meddling, and you should absolutely feel free to tell me where I can shove my suggestions if you prefer.

If you do want to make those changes, though, anyone should have rights to move the pages in question, just by visiting them and choosing More > Move at the top of the page. Then you can set the new page name/path, it'll be moved, and the system will place a redirect at the old location so that existing links don't get broken. If you'd like any assistance in setting this up, I'd be happy to help. Thanks in advance for listening, and as I said please don't feel that there's any pressure for you to take this suggestion, unless you wish to.

Also CC'ing BlueStapler on this, simply because I'd feel better having a second set of eyes to decide whether my suggestion makes sense / is worth taking. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 23:31, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

P.S> On a slightly-related note, I'd also suggest perhaps moving the "content" content of this page — basically, everything above this section I've created — to a non-Talk-namespace page such as Harvest Moon/Weekly Harvest. Pages in the Talk namespace are really intended to be used for discussion of their related main-namespace articles (i.e. posts such as this one), not for separate original content of their own. Putting "page" content on a Talk page kind of muddies those waters a bit, though it's really not a big deal. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 23:51, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

The subpages are a great idea, but personally I've got no idea of how to move pages, tried following that you wrote, but I don't want to mess up the wiki. If you could help without causing any trouble, that would be appreciated. About the talk page, I know what its purpose is, but honestly almost no one ever uses it... putting page content doesn't seem like a problem. Heck, I'm seeing this only today; forums and PMs are more reliable in my opinion. — Kyta S Indigo (talk) 15:11, 8 April 2018 (UTC), Wiki Witch of the Moon

So, aside from this conversation being extremely dead... I thought I should chime in. If you all we all still feel okay with moving the pages, I’ll gladly move them. I could also move the Weekly Harvest if you want. I doubt anyone is going to reply to this, but, I thought I’d volunteer nonetheless.
I’d do it myself since I am in HM now, but, I don’t want to do it without any discussion or warning. — Emptysora (talk) 06:10, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
Eh... I’ll bring this up in GC or the forums when I get the chance... — Emptysora (talk) 02:55, 18 December 2019 (UTC)
