  • Hey, JATSKO! This is pretty random, but having been away from the Wiki for awhile until just recently, I have been checking out pages at leisure...(not just out of necessity!) ;) Anyway, I can REALLY see the improvement in overall quality of the pages since your arrival, notably the artwork "polishing". The one that struck me the most was the closing artwork in Sub10: The Exit, (above ground, with camels) and it's "minor edits" as you modestly labeled them. FANTASTIC WORK! Over the past 10 years I have done my own graphics "edits" for my own personal Submachine - curiosity creations, (i.e. Long before it was posted on Wiki, my Wanting to know what the massive vertical statue at the bottom of Sub 9's Temple actually looked like, as the player only sees about 1/7 of it at any given time during the scrolling sequence...PLUS the trademark Submachine shading around the edges to constantly deal with!) ...So I completely realize and totally appreciate what a tremendous effort that HAD to have been, and seriously admired it for a good 5 minutes, for whatever that's worth! So glad to have you as Admin/Beaur, and fantastic that you are as passionate as I would be if I had the time to be an Admin!

    • Well, it was what it was. I'm just providing an up-to-date source of information for people; if it means I have to go to a bit of a length to compile a picture, so be it. I'm glad you appreciate it!

  • Again a little message from that new member of the Submachine Wiki Exploration Team. I don't think it's useful to again fill this message with references like resin fills the left part of the Temple, so I won't do that again this time.

    In one of your videos or streams (please keep 'em coming, Jatsko), you mentioned that you're studying literature. Probably it was in BTM #3, my favorite BTM till now. Yeah, in that video, you deepened out the chiastic structure in the Submachine series. You were watching Submachine from a literary perspective.

    I dug that. That was a great thing you did there.

    Initially, when a friend of mine showed me Submachine 6 short after its release, we didn't care a lot about the storyline. Our English probably wasn't good enough back, and our main goal was to finish the game. Around the release of Sub10, I got interested in Submachine again after playing it barely for some years. Around that time I found your YouTube channel too, by the way (I started watching your Submachine Weekend). After Sub10's release and the gigantic amount of locations and informations it involved, I got more and more interested in the actual story behind it. I started to realize (mostly by investigating the Wiki and re-reading the Notes) what a great job Mateusz Skutnik had done. I started to enjoy Submachine at a different "level", in a different way.

    And now I ask you, Professor in Submachinistry Jatsko, to express your some more views of Submachine as a literary work of art, as someone who knows a lot about literature. It's fascinating how a video game contains so much story, so much deepness to it, and so much to discover. Every answer adds three questions to our list. 

    What makes Submachine a game such an extraordinarily prosaic game in the point-and-click genre? 

    Disclaimer: I'm expressing a desire. This is of course not meant to appear compelling.

    • Hi, thanks for the post. I guess I'm not sure exactly what you're asking. Are you looking for me to try to write the Submachine plot out as an actual literary work or did you want me to discuss the plot more from a literary standpoint? Let me know. I should also clear up that I'm not studying literature at all; it's just something that catches my interest from time to time.

      "did you want me to discuss the plot more from a literary standpoint?"

      I meant this :)

      (I thought you had told somewhere in BTM 3 that you were studying literature. Apparently I was wrong. I've re-watched the first few minutes of it and couldn't find it).

  • Hi Jatsko, I was just wondering if you could change the status of my theory to "unvoted", as I have finally completed it. 

    Thanks,

    (P.S, can I possibly become an administator on the wiki, I'd really like to know your thoughts)

    • Edit another 945 Pages, and then ask him again.

    • I don't see any evidence of you having made changes to it since January 27th. However if you say it is complete, then of course I'll change it.

      Keep these things in mind: 1) You can add more to your theory any time you want, and you can also change the status itself between unvoted and reserved. The only time a status change is not allowed is when a theory has been voted on. New theories can be manipulated by the author as much as possible :D

      2) This is just a general thought: I know I've been making a crap-ton of edits lately, but that shouldn't intimidate you from making your own. I'm not saying that I think you're holding back; just remember to feel free to edit whatever you think needs to be edited.

      That being said, since I understand you're interested in serving this Wiki, there are a lot of things you should keep in mind when asking about the admin situation. First, people are not automatically qualified for adminship after reaching a certain amount of edits (btw, HallMonitor4, welcome to the wiki!).

      What matters is your intent for the position, what the Wiki needs right now, and the experience you're bringing to the table. So, just to make sure you're clear, let me talk about each of these points.

      Your intent. What is it that makes you want to run for the position? What goals do you hope to achieve that you can not by being a regular user? As the previous active admin did for me, I will ask you to write a statement with your goals. For more information on what exactly an admin does, look at http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Administrators'_how-to_guide , which gives a good list of an admin's power and, in tandem, responsibilities.

      The Wiki's needs. The Wiki has two active admins right now, me and Vortex. Obviously I'm much more active than Vortex is, but he is still available on backup. Also - again, looking at who edits the Wiki - it's mostly me making edits that are both admin-specific, but most are edits that anyone can do. I just happen to make time to constantly take care of them. When it comes to admin powers, though, I actually don't do that much. I'd say about 90% of the stuff I actively do on the Wiki is stuff anyone can do without adminship. If you were to take a general snapshot of the Wiki right now, you'll notice that you have a very small group of regular people making edits (10 might be stretching it), and two of those people are admins. That means there is already enough administrative power as is to serve a community of that size. So keep all this in mind.

      Your skills. This is really similar to the first point, but there are some additional things to be aware of here. This is something to really think about: what can you bring to the table that the Wiki needs? What makes you eligible for a boost in authority? This is more than just stating what you want to do as an admin; this deals with how Vortex and I know that you are someone we can give this power to.

      So you asked for my thoughts; those are it. It might have been a bit more than you were expecting, but it's what the old highly-active admin (Mordikai Wartwunson) told me to consider when I applied for the position. Take some time to think about it, and if you still want to pursue it, let me know with you thoughts and intentions!

      On an end note, I think I will make a YouTube video describing my position on the Wiki, especially since a few more users have started being active on here. I'll probably explain why I do what I do, the power I have, and how new users can feel at home on the SubWiki. It'll do me some good to cross-check my power and look at it from a position where I'm actually reviewing it and not utilizing it all the time. So thanks for bringing up your question for this reason also :D

    • Thank you for the detailed response! I understand that my position on this wiki has been very small when compared to others, and I certainly have no problem in contributing more before bringing up admin stuff until then. Personally, I think I have to learn a lot about the editing process, and doing so by devoting more time into the wiki. I aprecciate the time, and effort you put into this site, and the information you provide for the fandom. That being said, I love the submachine franchise, and would like to contribute to it in any way possible. I believe only in time, and effort I can truly prove I am eligible for an administrator position. 

      Thanks again for your respone,

      808

    (@jfh): A little message from a new member of the SWET, the Submachine Wiki Exploration Team.

    Last day I went... no, not camping in Kent... I was teleporting between videos in area jts. The wisdom of Thoth (or of the ancient cristal of wisdom, not sure ;) )guided me to an idea for the Knowledge Storing Area (which is called Wiki by people with two regular arms). What if there was a longread, one cool fancy longread, with the whole story of the Submachine Series written down. 32 pages filled with a magnificent story... Along with the story itself, there could be additional information, like in your video about Mirrors.

    There is no diary page, there is no spoon, but there could be an epic story page!

    Why am I PM'ing you? Well..I've got an assignment for you. You seem to be the best man for this job! Is it an interesting idea? Or are there seven answers to that question? Use your powers, given to you by Shiva, to write... ;)

    I referenced every game in this post...

    I am sorry

    and

    m = 291*

    sincerely

    J.

    *good feeling about this one

    • I appreciate the effort that went into that. Well done!

      There used to be a page containing a sort of summary of the series, but it had to be constantly revised because people couldn't agree how to write it, and the numerous plot holes made a final version frustrating.

      The problem is, even after 11 years, there's not enough information.

      Right now I'm developing a plan to see if I can tackle making a summary, but I am waiting until after the release of Submachine: The Engine to do so. I feel like that game will enlighten us and help fill in the gaps.

      So yeah, I'll totally do it. But we just need more facts.

      (It's actually for that very same reason that I'm planning to hold off creating topic discussions for some of my Beating the Machine videos until after the Engine is released.)

      Thanks for letting me know of your interest!

    • I'm even more exited for The Engine now...

      I love those BTM videos, your explanations which dig deep into the Submachines. It's interesting how a game series contains such a great story, isn't it? So much detail. Things you didn't see the first or second time you play it.

      I'm btw new to the WIki, but I've been a fan for several years.

    • BTW, a little question: what would happen if you'd break the walls of, let's say, the basement? What's behind it? Unknown rooms? The void? And if you would jump into the Void, where would you end up? Would you die... or is actual death not really possible in a Submachine? Are dead people in Submachines only dead in some layers but alive in others?

      I don't think it's possible to get a quick answer to this question...

  • I'm very sorry to hear the YouTube channel hasn't worked out Jatsko. Me, and many others have enjoyed your content, and it's sad to see you take a hiatus; however I understand. Is there any possible way of keeping the channel alive by letting other users make content for it? If so, I would really like to contribute. Please take it into consideration, and take as much time for yourself as you need.

    Thanks for the great content, and help in the Sub community!

    • Thanks for your kind words :) I'm trying to figure out a solution for the YouTube channel. As it is right now, it shouldn't be too much of a hassle to configure it for other Pastel Members; however, one thing that bugs me about it is that the channel has a vanity url called "youtube.com/jatsko", which I set before I turned it into the community channel. I can't delete the url or change it, and I really don't want it to be associated with the channel anymore.

      I'm discussing on the forum how to best work around it here: http://pastelland.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=732&start=60

    • Yes, there is! Take a look at my user page to see what I'm up to.

      Since there's been so much news coming out about the eventual release of Submachine Universe HD, I decided to do a sort of minimal cleanup to theory pages and any locations in the current SubVerse to get everything ready for the release. Typically upon a game release the Wiki holds a theory voting session where we open up select categories of theories to be voted on by the community (this is all explained in full on the theory voting page). I thought it wouldn't be a bad idea to add a "theory history" of statuses to each theory to give them some more substance before we head into the next session.

      Thanks for the kind words!
