Jet, it was brought to my attention that you added a new rule to the roleplay rules. This was not discussed with either Icy or me, who are the final line of confirmation for new rules.
While I do understand the reasoning as to why you would want a rule like this, I can find no evidence as to who approved of this. Any rules or edits that Winter has made on the roleplay rules page was done on the authority of Icy and I being in agreement after weighing in the pros and cons.
I have asked Winter to rollback your edit. This proposed rule will go into consideration and we will let you know of what the conclusion is.
Okay, I would also like to request that you add a note of that, I was scanning the rules for what was the process for rule submissions to a new rule. As the rules tended to be something discussed and then ultimately if the majority viewed it as a good rule it was added from my perspective.
I also recommend making an official list of who to go to for this stuff so I don't get asked to do stuff that are outside my powers.
Admins (people who get last decision on stuff/run the RP): Ember (wiki name), Iceflower (wiki name)
Content editors (minor mods who can edit pages) Wint, Juni
Minor moderators who can only approve characters: Jet, and whoever else just have this power.
But if she's already a part of the decisions process, why not let her accept cats? I know content editing is you get to edit threads, okay then that could be a moderator/content editor, the position just below the admins and can only act on their say so.
I'm just saying the jobs aren't entirely clear and thus the power structure is unclear, even me looking in as someone who's been here for a long time find it unclear. Which means it's likely extremely confusing to a new or younger member.
While we can list who does what, it's all too easy to assume that the ones accepting cats are involved in the decisions of what happens in the roleplay from those outside. It should be made clear at the top of the rules that Icy and Emb are in charge and everything is done on their say so. And that certain members can do things, and they can't do others.
There has to be a way to make notifications go through the wiki so everyone can be aware of these things cause even I wasn't aware of that.
There's a lot of things I'm not aware of tbh, I stick to the roleplay so much that I'm barely up on what's going on in the overarching wiki.
I'm thinking whoever does that newletter/announcement things should maybe include a plug in the roleplaying info pages maybe have anyone who has even a small amount of responsibility on this wiki have to be aware of these changes and updates. Like when a newsletter is posted all the ones who moderate, or do tasks have to reply/confirm they've read these updates so there isn't any risk of miscommunication

2. You have an article pending from the end of August, titled "Rewriting Ashfur - unfinished". I'm not certain if it was Russet who added the unfinished part, but it does seem unfinished, as it cuts off right after a comma. Would you like this article to be sent to you so that you may finish it, or would you like me to just delete the article?
Ashfur is a character I dislike because he got an outcome I feel was undeserved. As a cat who attempted to murder four cats (Firestar, Hollyleaf, Lionblaze and Jayfeather) he should've gone to the Dark Forest. Instead we get a line about him loving too much and that somehow is supposed to fix everything. As I've grown older, I've read stories that have of examples of people who are unfortunately similar to Ashfur, not in the 'I have a crush on you, but you don't love me, that justifies me killing those around you to make you pay', more in the, 'I want you, but you refuse to be with me so I'll try to make your life a living nightmare'. There's not a large difference, but the murder is the thing that earns Ashfur The Dark Forest no matter what the books say. However, if Ashfur were to have been rewritten, and the murder parts removed, Hawkfrost using someone else to get to Firestar, he can still be a giant yandere to Squirrelflight just not a murderous one. Yandere literally translate to love sick, and in many pop culture stuff is represented by a crazy person who is determined to do everything they can to get the person they love. From manipulating others relationships, to offing people, to bribes they'll do anything to get the one they desire. Because they're love sick. Now we've seen some nasty, mean, and callous cats make it to StarClan (Rainflower and Appledusk namely). So if Ashfur didn't attempt to kill anyone his path to StarClan would be more reasonable with the excuse that he 'loved too much' He could still pose a threat to Squirrelflight, just not exactly a life threatening one... as much. A thought I had was what if he didn't agree to help Hawkfrost kill Firestar, I have no doubt Hawkfrost would've found some other way, but what if instead when Squirrelflight left with Leafpool he followed them and learned the secret then and there. While yes it was 'official medicine cat business' he was willing to bar three cats from escaping a fire and lead his clan leader into a trap, ignoring the official business and following them wouldn't be too out of character. He could totally mess up their lives, either from realizing Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw hadn't had kits yet (opening the door for him) or from going out to Leafpool and Squirrelflight and threatening to reveal their secret and have Leafpool and her kits driven out. There's a number of terrible ways it could go, he could force Squirrelflight to claim that they were his and her kits still protecting Leafpool but alienating Brambleclaw and causing great pain to Squirrelflight. Or he could make small demands of them every now and then while holding the secret hostage. But it doesn't have to just be the secret. Ashfur in Sunset showed how he was willing to cast doubt on Leafpools integrity because she was Squirrelflights sister trying to promote Squirrelflights mate. Ashfur could easily spread some rumors here and there, Leafpools been talking with Crowfeather again, or Lionpaws been passing intel to WindClan in the tunnels (if he discovered him and heatherpaw at the time Lionpaw was occasionally training with Tigerstar and Hawkfrost and developing strange wounds overnight, Ashfur could get curious what the son of the cat he loves is up to and follows him and discovers them meeting). Now Lionpaws in hot water, causing strife for his mother without spilling a drop of blood. The potential ways Ashfur could muck up Squirrelflights and her kits lives are numerous. What if since he knew Hawkfrost wanted help he agreed to help only to try to expose Brambleclaw as a traitor to the clan. I think that's what he did want to do, so in this case it'd be him actually succeeding in doing so. Or planning it so rather than Firestar getting trapped he warnedFirestar of Hawkfrost and Brambleclaw treachery or even announces it to the clan in an impromptu announcement like Mousefur did in the book. What I'm saying is Ashfur could've been a terribly cruel and obsessive love sick cat who did everything to both hurt Squirrelflight and drive her to surrender to him. He doesnt necessarily need to be Darkstripe levels of bad, he could be subtle about it. Like if he forced Squirrelflight to claim he was the father of Jaykit, Hollykit and Lionkit, I think he'd be satisfied with the ruse and we'd see Squirrelflight suffering from her lost relationship with Brambleclaw and the kits growing up with a great deal of tension around them. But Ashfur wouldn't be a mustache twirling villain, he'd be satisfied with the result and go about life as he did, just with seemingly kits of his own, with the she cat he wanted as his mate. I could see the tensions getting to him eventually as his and Squirrelflights interactions keep forcefully reminding him they're living a lie. Until he finally explodes at the three at some point revealing the truth and knocking the world out from under their paws. Sorta like how Hollyleaf did in Sunrise. I could still see him trying to bar their path in the fire to get rid of them, but Squirrelflight or Jayfeather says they won't look kindly on you if you kill 'your' kits. But since we're discussing how he could still go to StarClan he can't do that. He could be recklessly negligent, like run ahead while they're still trying to get clear and just not be helpful. I think if Ashfur had taken the less bloody approach and either just acted as a saboteur (keeping a close eye on Squirrelflights family to seek out opportunity to muck up their lives) or mastermind (learning the secret right away and forcing Squirrelflight and Leafpools kits to be 'his kits'). Him being allowed in StarClan would be somewhat more reasonable. I don't think we'd be thrilled but hey they've let an abusive mother in, a terrible cat who ditched his mate after she lost everything, so a yandere who spilled no blood would be fine,
