Yesterday, I saw your latest edit on your userpage, so, in reply to that, I wrote a five paragraph essay about that statement, but then I was in a hurry and unfortunately I forgot to save (fortunately for you, since it did ramble on a bit), so now it's lost and since I can't be bothered to re-write it (unless you really want to read it?), let me say that that's a really provocative insult on the entire database, including yourself. I don't want to create tension and arguments, but hey, that's what I think, and I wanted to write that. Penguinpuffdude It's time for a chat, no? 01:50, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
Since you asked for it, I remembered what I wrote, re-wrote it, and here it is:
"Okay, where should I start? Ah, yes.
If we're talking about "diversity is weakness!!" about people from different countries, then you're really, really wrong. Do you suppose that a bunch of males from exclusively <insert country here> is totally the way to go?
I don't think so!
Star Kirby12, Swiss Ninja, and hey, even the most famous user on the wiki, Explorer, are all on the Wall of Fame due to their top-notch content...but they weren't from just one country! That statement insults and excludes users like these, as somehow weak and pathetic. Also, it insults yourself, because you're Canadian, and face the cold facts - Canadians is a French-speaking country, but France isn't made up of just one kind of people due to where it is located, and Napoleon doesn't help (c'mon, there have got to be British, Italian, Spanish, etc. people). Your neighbours, the Americans, are also made up of a variety of diverse cultures. That's how you insult yourself, and others from the same continent.
It's also kinda hypocritical, because you - another guy on the Wall of Fame, a respected admin - write about a variety of different subjects, from countries to penguins to Shops Island's transport system: does that mean you too, are weak? You'd shout "of course not!", but with this statement, you make yourself weak. (Don't get me wrong, I'm not intentionally trying to flamebait here!)
Now, let's move on to another subject.
If there was no diversity, then the world and the wiki would be really boring places. Let's imagine, long ago, the wiki decided to follow your statement, and we had only two countries - Antarctica and Club Penguin. Then, the wiki decided that all important penguins (presidents, mayors, etc.) were exactly like their CP counterparts, and nobody could be like them until CP said so. Then, our only characters would be a bunch of our own accounts, and we were in the humble places we were, as either member or non-member. Don't you think that you - and many others - would have quit long ago, from the boredom and restriction?
In a connected point - you like the English language, but it's a mashup of Latin, Greek, Saxon, Scandinavian, Celtic and French. Would you necessarily still like it if was soooo not diverse, and the language didn't accept new terms, while other languages had epic words like schadenfreude, zeitgeist, and ennui?
Finally, this is just an uninformed guess, but it proves that you're using axioms, in this case, with the theory of divide and conquer. Let's say a country's invaders took over the country, but they feared the subjects were too strong, and may become dissatisfied with them. So, they gently ease their enemies into powerful positions - or spread slander - and with the chaos, they can happily keep power. Here, diversity is a bad thing, but it doesn't mean that:
Diversity is a thing.
Divide and Conquer is bad.
Therefore all diversity is bad.
In other words, things are boring without diversity. Thank you for having the patience to read this."
I'll try to do these things after I improve the LQAS to AQAs. Also, the ships are important to protect all of the states and also located in different places most of the time (so at least half of them aren't in DI, but other places like Club Bear, Monitorpig and Baaa!, which are located away from the Duck Archipelago). -- Quackerpingu (Talk) (Contributions) 08:43, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
I've noticed while going through unrated articles that some characters have backgrounds or segments of their articles written in story format (an example would be Gold). I'm not quite sure how to go around rating these sort of articles in the future should we encounter any more of them. A discussion would be nice since im usually out cold when the four of you are around--

RE: A request
How's this? I've included all the cities I could find on the previous map, as well as some of the geographical features and locations mentioned on the article itself. I can always go back and change the names of the cities or add/remove certain things if you like -- Wikipenguino45 (Talk) (Contribs) (Articles) 03:57, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
That's something I'm 100% not accepting. What Wonderweez told me is that admins will change the article, which I was okay with because there weren't any issues left that I could find. However, I based everything I wrote on the maps (although I didn't write about the shape of DI and other stuff on the article). I don't want the maps or the shapes of the states changed without my approval, and I have the right to demand it as that wasn't part of what I was told would happen. Nobody told me anything about the maps, otherwise I'd have tried to change them myself. -- Quackerpingu (Talk) (Contributions) 09:07, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
Ok, change the maps, but only the states that are currently on File:Duckmap.png and File:Duckmap2.png- not Annonia or Noot Island, which were sold to Andera. -- Quackerpingu (Talk) (Contributions) 09:28, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
