    Straight off, I think you'd like to be informed that "Sheriff" Owens is a Constable

    I wrote "Sheriff Owens" and I'm pretty sure everyone will know who I'm talking about.

    I hate being picky, but wayne-scales is right. His name is Constable Owens.

    Yeah. Eh, sorry DonThrogg, but wayne is correct here.

    Seeing that you argument is based off personal opinion rather than logic, DonThrogg, maybe you might accept that wayne is correct if a quantity of others' opinions are weighed up against yours.

    Looks to me like Don is the one doing the work, and if he wants to call him John fuckin' Wayne, that's cool with me.

    Fair point.

    However, DonThrogg seems to be in the impression that his version of Owens' title is satisfactory, which is what we are "debating". If DonThrogg believed that his version wasn't satisfactory, then he may have posted "I've no problem if you change it yourself". He appears to wish for his decision to remain on the Wiki, evidence of this being his defense of his decision, but that may have been just to avoid conceding fault.

    'Sheriff' is satisfactory, and here's why: If you know enough about the game to notice the misnomer, you don't need a fucking Shrouded Hills walkthrough. And if you can't make the connection between Sheriff Owens and Constable Owens, you're going to need more help than the wiki can supply.



    "OMFG, where the fuck is Sheriff Owens? I wonder if he's related to old Constable Owens?"

    If one wishes to be presumptuous, maybe so.

    Hehe, well this is actually a point for my favor.



    Well, I guess the title is satisfactory, but that was a poor term of describing this situation on my part. I meant more of we are debating whether it should just be satisfactory on the Wiki, or should it be absolutely correct.

    Debates can get kinda messy when analyzed, because they involve both what is being debated, and also what the purpose of the sides in the argument are. It gets particularly messy to analyze as the debate develops, because debaters' credibility can get damaged, as well as what points are being debated in the present can be very distance form the original purposes of the debaters, and different debaters on the same side could even have different proposes.


    My stance on this particular subject is "call a spade a spade", however, you have some good points Jungle Japes.

    Are you guys joking? He just contributes to the troikipedia, and you guys jump on him for mixing up sheriff and constable?


    Donthrogg, thank you for the update. The community is grateful.

    Packersfan, I can assure that we did not "jump" on DonThrogg.

    wayne-scales merely pointed out an error which he believed DonThrogg to have made, in the intention so that it may be corrected to secure the excellence of DonThrogg's contribution to the community.

    As you may understand, conversation just develops. This is a forum, and debates are quite natural.

    I'm not sure if the following term is alien here, but: "QFT".

    I can easily change it to "Constable" but i don't think it really matters. If you want to change it you are free to register on Troikapedia and edit the page. And lets just stop arguing about Sheriff vs Constable.

    It's early and my brain isn't in gear yet, but I fail to see the impetus behind this post. Help me out here Grimm.

    Have you looked at the article in question?
