Advertising?[edit]

Is it really a good use of 'other meanings' to link to the commercial websites of companies selling anything called Kahuna? I'm thinking of removing all commercial links, and just adding a blanket entry saying that 'Kahuna' has been used as a product name or brand name by many companies. Anyone else reading this? Comments? Zora 03:53, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Kahuna

Agreed. Apart from specific copyrighted brand names standing as intangibles asset for a notable product/company (like CocaCola, whose proncipal asset is the brand name) other brand names on product related pages will only encourage advertisers to use WP as an advertising channel. Zora, it's time for you raise the advertising debate at the village pump. I think you have at least one supporter here. If we have a specific guideline to fight advertising it would make life simpler for all editors. It's difficult to use only personal judgement to fight something as entrenched as advertising. - Aditya Kabir 15:46, 20 December 2006 (UTC)

Re-write[edit]

I re-wrote the Hawaiian section to make it accurate and removed inauthentic and non-referenced statements. Makana Chai 21:11, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Pharmacy Manager?[edit]

This was in the body of the article:

  • Kahuna can sometimes be used by a Pharmacy Manager to refer to his or herself. The term is found to be somewhat vulgar in such usage.

This seems dubious to me. Can anyone confirm? Roman à clef 22:32, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

That at least sounds plausible: If the term has mainly referred to practitioners of herbal medicine since 1919, it could conceivably be co-opted by pharmacists. And if that did happen, I'd imagine it would seem rather vulgar. 72.82.227.247 (talk) 01:06, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Clarify please[edit]

Re: 'most kahuna practices remained legal' - unclear whether this refers to spiritual practices or craftsmanship. From what I've read, colonisation meant that spiritual practices were outlawed as 'superstition'; but I'm not aware that crafts expertise was under threat.Julia Rossi 04:58, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for being bold. I agree it's unsourced trivia, yet I believe most of it is true, and it's helpful to have this information available in the article. How about moving back into the article and calling it 'usourced trivia'? I'd rather have it unsourced than sourced, or we'll end up with a bunch of ridiculous links, methinks. Mahalo Makana Chai (talk) 20:23, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
I may have been too bold! I've added the section back in per your suggestion, but I've also added a {{trivia}} tag. Are you familiar with WP:TRIV and the links at the bottom of that page? Perhaps we can work together to improve this article. Viriditas (talk) 09:06, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
Mahalo. I'll check WP:TRIV. Right now I'm researching something for the main part of the article, which I'm more concerned about. And then we're supposed to be working on Hawaiian religion :-) This one is lower on my list. Makana Chai (talk) 06:33, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
So true. :) Ok. Let me know if I can be your research assistant. Viriditas (talk) 10:12, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
I looked at WP:TRIV and this doesn't seem to fit. This isn't a random list of trivia, it is a list of non-Hawaiian uses, a legitimate section, me thinks. But speaking of trivia, I pared down the history section to take out some inessential details. Now if we can just get to religion ... Makana Chai (talk) 08:46, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
I understand what you are saying, and I think you are making an important point, but on Wikipedia, trivia sections are generally considered lists of information that are not important to the subject in question. The question to ask is, how is this material important to the subject? If the answer is, 'it isn't', then it probably doesn't belong here. Whenever possible, we try to incorporate the trivia into the body of the topic, or convert lists to prose. This process usually requires expansion. If a list of material is deemed important, it should be restricted to a particular topic. Trivia that doesn't have sources is usually removed on sight. Viriditas (talk) 11:54, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
You're right. I moved it all to a new disambig page. Hope that's okay. Should we take out all the listings above that you put there for safekeeping? Makana Chai (talk) 01:50, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
It depends on the entry. The dab project has a set of strict guidelines that they use, and they will eliminate any entry that doesn't have an actual page. If you think the information is important, and can easily be converted into prose, it may be necessary to merge it into other articles, or failing that, find the appropriate redirect. Red links are usually deleted on dab pages. Viriditas (talk) 21:40, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Well, if you look at the dab, someone wrote 'bollocks' in the comment section. There are hardly any links at all. Is there some other format we can find for this? Otherwise, I fear we will spend the rest of our lives defending this page from people putting up every trivial reference to kahuna. And the trivia info is useful on some level. Just not here. Makana Chai (talk) 22:27, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Leave a very brief note over at Wikipedia talk:Disambiguation and Wikipedia talk:Trivia sections and ask for help. There are usually good editors watching those pages. I can of course, offer more advice, but maybe it is best to get more editors involved; That might give you more choices. Viriditas (talk) 22:40, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Good job, Makana. It looks like you received a number of helpful replies. BTW, the 'bollocks' that User:Closedmouth left in the edit summary had nothing to do with your article. That user was upset because their previous edit was a typo. You can see it, here. :-) Viriditas (talk) 13:07, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Rappelz Player Class Guide by koki1

Balancing Classes: War Kahuna - History Of Rappelz

I made this little thing mostly for new players who wants to know more the classes. Maybe it will help people choosing a class for the first time.

First, when you make your character, you choose your race. There are 3 different races; Gaia, Deva and Asura.

Then, when you have completed some start quests and such, you will be able to choose your first job class. For each race there are 3 first job classes:

Gaia: Fighter, Kahuna and Spell Singer.
Deva: Holy Warrior, Cleric and Breeder.
Asura: Strider, Dark Magi and Sorcerer.

Fighter: The Gaia warrior. A regular damage dealer class. The class can be used as a melee combat fighter or a long range fighter. As melee weapon I would recommend using a 2-handed axe or 2 1-handed axes (you will need a passive skill for that). Swords also work. As long range weapon you have a Long Bow.

Kahuna: The Gaia magician. This class have some good magic spells combined with a pretty good melee fighting ability. They are usually using a 2-handed axe for fighting. They also have buff skills (raising stats of others/yourself) that are very useful in groups.

Spell Singer: The Gaia summoner. As all summoner classes, this class uses a pet to fight by your side. It got skills to make a pet strong. Combined with this, it’s also a good fighter by itself. I would recommend using 2 1-handed axes when you get the passive skill for it. A 2-handed axe works too.

Holy Warrior: The Deva warrior. This class are mainly melee combat warriors. It has good defense and health, which makes it an excellent tank that can last long. Many weapons fit this class, some are 1-handed sword + shield, 2 1-handed swords, spear, 1-handed mace + shield etc.

Cleric: The Deva magician. This class are most known for the healing spells. It can heal (restore health) other players and itself. This makes it an excellent class for playing in groups to keep people alive. It also have other good magic spells and buffs. I recommend using a staff for better healing when you are playing in a group or a mace when you play alone for a good combination of magic and melee attacks.

Breeder: The Deva summoner. A class where you use a pet fighting by your side. It has skills to make a pet strong in addition to pet healing and pet buffs. Recommended weapon is a 2-handed mace.

Strider: The Asura warrior. A class that fights melee or range. It is known for fast hits and quick speed. Melee weapons would be 2 1-handed swords or 2 1-handed dirks. The range weapon for this class is a crossbow.

Dark Magi: The Asura magician. This class is using attack magic and debuff magic. It casts strong magic spells to kill the enemy. It uses a 2-handed staff for strong magic attacks, but a dirk + shield combo works too for melee attacks.

Sorcerer: The Asura summoner. Another class where you use a pet to fight by your side. It have skills to make your pet strong and also got good magic attack skills. They are mainly using dirk + shield to fight.

Later, when your character level is at least 50 and your job level is at least 40, you will be able to choose a second job class based on the class you choose as first job.

A short list over the second job classes:

Fighter can become a Champion or an Archer.
Champion improves the melee ability of the fighter.
Archer improves the range ability of the fighter.

Rappelz Made Simple

Kahuna can become a Druid or a Battle Kahuna.
Druid gets good new magic spells and are probably more specialized on magic than the Battle Kahuna.
Battle Kahuna improves the fighting of the Kahuna, and are probably more specialized on melee attacking than the Druid.

Spell Singer can become an Evoker.
Evoker improves the abilities of the spell singer.

Holy Warrior can become a Soldier or a Knight.
Soldier improves the abilities of the Holy Warrior. Probably a bit more oriented on attack power than the Knight.
Knight improves the abilities of the Holy Warrior. Probably a bit more oriented on defense power than the Soldier.

Cleric can become a Priest or a Bishop.
Priest improves the healing abilities of the Cleric.
Bishop improves the magic abilities of the Cleric. A little less healing specialized than the Priest.

Breeder can become a Soul Breeder.
Soul Breeder improves the abilities of the Breeder.

Strider can become an Assassin or a Shadow Hunter.
Assassin improves the melee ability of the Strider.
Shadow Hunter improves the range ability of the Strider.

Dark Magi can become a Chaos Magician or a Warlock.
Chaos Magician improves the magic abilities of the Dark Magi. More attack spell specialized than the Warlock.
Warlock improves the magic abilities of the Dark Magi. More Debuff spell specialized than the Chaos Magician.

Sorcerer can become a Battle Summoner.
Battle Summoner improves the abilities of the Sorcerer.
