Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Use in computer technology[edit]

A definition should be added for the usage related to computers. - Juzeris 23:29, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC) This begs the question - where to stop? The descriptive elements of the definition lend its usage to computers, games, and other superficially empowered beings.

Traditional Usage[edit]

OK - the word 'wizard' was used LONG before roleplaying games and the gamer definition should not be the core definition used.

'Tis true, see Wizard (paranormal).

Why[edit]

Why was my addition removed today?

Because it is a copyright violation? Please don't copy it in again. Robert Ullmann 23:36, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

It is not a copyright violation. I have approval from my professor to use this. It is from the Grey School of Wizardry. So you need to allow it in this public forum or it is a TOS violation.

The entry was copied wholesale from another source and subsequently badly formatted, I beleive a lot of the content may reside better in wikipedia. Also it is considered extremely bad maners to renter material previously reverted. Your should contact the admin that reverted first to discuss why.--Williamsayers79 09:07, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

wizard

"An older male virgin, particularly one over 30 years of age". The given citation only says that if you reach 30 as a virgin, you will become a wizard, i.e. wizard in the normal sense, a magical man. It doesn't show that "wizard" means "old virgin". Equinox 03:38, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Seems like it was just a misunderstanding. RFV failed. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 22:38, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
