The nomination of any group that fails voting of historical status should be moved from Category talk:Historical Groups to here. Archives for failed nominations prior to 2010 can be found here.

Umbrella Corporation

Traditionally those nominating groups write a short paragraph explaining why they have nominated said groups. --Ross Less Ness Enter Stranger... 23:12, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

that usually applies to groups that have some accomplishments in game tho.-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 23:28, 14 November 2012
Should I remove them? Since they were absorbed into our group I thought the these pages should be represented as well.--Umbrella-White.pngPresident JacksonUmbrella-White.png 23:55, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Aren't these separate groups? Some of us chose not to pay attention to the drama-bomb that exploded with them, so I have no clue which groups are sub-groups are separate. Aichon 23:32, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Can I start this over or something? I misunderstood the voting. I thought people would be voting for each unique page. I'm simply representing Umbrella Corporation, I'm not here to represent the other subgroups that were absorbed into us. Just thought it was part of the measure of voting to include those groups with us.--Umbrella-White.pngPresident JacksonUmbrella-White.png 00:21, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

You can try again a week after the voting ends if you really want, but I seriously doubt you'll get a friendlier welcome next time. Anything with the name "Umbrella" in it (with a handful of exceptions) tends to get a rather visceral reaction from most folks, based on what I've seen over the years. Since I missed most of the original drama, I don't entirely understand it all, but I wouldn't bet on making it into Historical Groups unless you can cite something that's actually historical. I.e. Something that changed the way the game was played. You may have accomplished more than some groups, but most of those groups came earlier and came up with ideas that altered the course of the game in some way. Without being able to show that you did so, it's hard to succeed in getting through these days. Aichon 04:46, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your sympathetic response. I guess I'm not the man to do this. Surprisingly (or not) I did most of the coding for anything Umbrella related on the wiki with the exception of templates. It was a lot of time spent that I hoped to be preserved. When the second Era ended our history was deleted from the internets by those who seized control in the Third Era. It's really the stigma of Umbrella Corporation. It's a lot of fun to role play it out but didn't translate well with ends not justifying means. The incident in which the majority are basing their decisions off of was with a character player named Haliman111. I'll spare details that lead to the "drama", but he was a fine addition to our group at the time and a great adversary at the end of it all. Same cannot be said for those who destroyed our forum or erased our history. Around six years our groups involvement in-game. I'd like to think that we did something, but perhaps I will simply be left to thoughts.--Umbrella-White.pngPresident JacksonUmbrella-White.png 20:52, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

You should have contacted me Jackson, even though I could have told you in advance this attempt would have stood no chance at all, and while Umbrella is something of a long closed book to me, I wouldn't have minded writing a decent overview of the group's shaded past that I knew of. Even though even I personally lean on "No", right now this bid doesn't do the group justice. Perhaps I'll try to write something better, if only to serve as a counterweight to some of the more predictable criticism. -- Cat Pic.png Thadeous Oakley Talk 10:27, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

This proposal wasn't authorized by the current leadership of Umbrella Corporation. Although I have great doubts that this'll go through (Yes, I understand our shady history); I would like to say that Jackson no longer represents UC as a whole, he hasn't for quite some time. Although we are largely inactive, we still continue on as unnoticeable mist... I, as the current legitimate Chairman of the Board, CEO; in no shape way or form condone Umbrella Corporation (Or it's sub-groups) being nominated for historical status. That being said, I shall vote as such below. --Chairman Fanglord, 16:01, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
If the group is still active in part, then this isn't even a valid nomination (see rule #6 above). Aichon 16:05, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
Then it's decided, this nomination isn't valid.... Just another tarnish on our public relations record I'm afraid. --Chairman Fanglord, 17:17, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

    If such documented history (Umbrella Corporation Recent Events [3]) is not enough to impress then I willfully concede our faults and apologize for wasting each of your valuable time.

  3. No 1) You're too lazy to even write up reasons why these groups should be included, (Didn't know, not going to hold it against them) 2) I know little about these groups and what I do know isn't good  CrunchyCake  T  Breakfast Club 23:42, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
    I've read what you've put and even looked into some of these links. It's not particularly impressive trying to show off what you've done with broken links and I'm really struggling to see what sort of achievements you've actually acomplished. The history page is rather scant filled with what I can only call fluff (2 operations? and even then not particularly well documented - the 2nd in particular is highly confusing as to what you actually did). I remain unconvinced.  CrunchyCake  T  Breakfast Club 07:05, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
    I "fixed" the links. Would you mind removing the comment about being lazy? I didn't know I was allowed to post a brief paragraph and my wiki skills are lacking.--Umbrella-White.pngPresident JacksonUmbrella-White.png 20:37, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
  4. I think in its heyday, I saw some graffiti around about UBCS, but unfortunately that was about it. Yeah, I'm sure you guys were around, but I really can't say with confidence that I ever had any experience with your group besides on the wiki (bad things). A ZOMBIE ANT 00:14, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
  5. Famous for zerging and other miscellaneous douchebaggery. Nothing else. --Papa Moloch 00:25, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
    Whoa whoa whoa whoa. "...zerging and other miscellaneous douchebaggery..." Can you site any of that? Sounds like you are all basing your biased decisions on something that happened back in early 2009. Not reflecting on anything prior or post as if that is what defined this group. Are you freakin kidding me?--Umbrella-White.pngPresident JacksonUmbrella-White.png 01:15, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
    No one said that was all you did. It's just the only thing you did well enough to be noticed. So for almost everyone outside of the group(s), all they know is zerging and crying. --Open the Box Org XIII Alts 15:49, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
    This is called, "Historical Groups". As such, any history, even the ones from early 2009, is vital history about the groups. As such, we're making our opinions based on the groups' history, and what parts of it stands out. Sadly, the bad history stands out a lot more than the good. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 15:59, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

  7. Nope. Your given reasons can be summed up thus- "We played the game, had some drama and made a few wiki edits." Great, now how about something the rest of us didn't do too? Also, your only legacy is as a drama magnet, and what little contact I've had with Umbrella only supported that. Pretty sure trollbait doesn't count as historical.--RadicalWhig 01:16, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Regulators Alliance

The Regulators Alliance was based out of Dartside. The RA, initially was the group name. Over time we evolved into an alliance, the original members still carried the RA in their name, but newer members were not required to do so; As such we had many groups which fell into the umbrella of the alliance, but weren't necessarily Regulators themselves. The groups listed on our page, included both allies (separate groups entirely) and alliance members. While the RA was together Dartside stayed safe, and kept to the original founding members mission of establishing a place where survivors could be safe. The RA was the main group in Dartside until their disbanding. The RA had a reputation for being fair, regardless of affiliations. Pk'ers who moved through Dartside but did not attack members were allowed to move through untouched. Groups who wanted to call Dartside home were encouraged and helped. To this day, the 57th ADMI is still in Dart and maintains a presence. If the RA has a legacy, then they would be a part of it. I understand just because a group was around for awhile doesn't mean they deserve this; but I think the RA does. We dedicated our time and talent to not only securing Dartside, but we maintained the area, and helped our allies whenever they needed help. Our connections to other groups, went much farther then just Dartside, as we maintained many friendships throughout Malton, which included not just other survivor groups but some pk'er groups as well. I will happy to answer any questions, and I appreciate everyone taking the time to vote and comment, thanks. Thanks to Aichon as well for helping me with the page.

  1. Rage against the machine. Perhaps not the most glamorous of groups, nor the most glamourous of suburbs, I still think RA had a pretty sizable impact on the history of Dartside from 2006-2009. Yeah, its localized history, but I still see it as history, and hopefully it won't be forgotten. -MHSstaff 21:57, 22 October 2012 (BST)

Team Xtreme

Team Xtreme - Having been a Pker for a long time and seen a lot of things in this game, I will say that as far as Bhers go, and I've seen a lot, these guys were one of the best I've encountered. They were an early adversary and served as a bit of measuring stick for ones that followed. I still remember these guys putting up a tougher challenge with less than half the players 'The Saints' had. A rare Bher group that you, as a Pker, didn't want to see much of but you respected them. A small but very effective group who often took on challenges rather than cower from them. Well organized, well lead and well known to those who stuck with the game for more than a month. --Hibernaculum 01:29, 4 July 2012 (BST)

  7. As the former leader I ask that all voters look at the History part of our page. We worked with Survivor groups such as the Cannonball Crew and Skynet Defense Network. Even though we were indeed Bounty Hunters we did a lot of pro survivor operations such as this one Alliance 45 In 2 operations we fought the Zombies in Gulsonside with Operation Damage Control (July 21, 2010 - Sept 12, 2010) and Operation: Beaten to Death (July 28, 2011 - September 5, 2011) Also with Operation Uplift (October 1, 2010 - October 22, 2010) Wyke Hills goes from Red to Green with Team Xtreme, the Wulves and D.S. R&D. Operation Blindside (January 19, 2011 - January 28, 2011) Team Xtreme with Skynet Defense Network, FPDF, AZS, KT, MR, C4NT, WULVES, MCDU, The Fortress, DSR&D, and Z.A.L.P. worked together in Whittenside against the Feral Undead just to name a few things (Not typical BHer stuff) Operation: Rock The Dead (April 11, 2011 - July 2, 2011) Was when Team Xtreme helped defend Malton against the return of the dead. Operation: Black List (September 9, 2011 - October 3, 2011) Was when Team Xtreme fought against Text Rapists and Zergs. This event won a 2011 Malton Murder Award for Best Bounty Hunting Moment, Team Xtreme is proud to have participated in the event. Team Xtreme was also Winner of the 2011 Malton Murder Awards for Best Bounty Hunter Group. And lastly October 28, 2010 is when I officially launched my blog web show The Xtreme Zone to entertain the people of Malton. The show lasted a year. And there was 4 years worth of Bounty Hunting in between all that. So my vote is yes. We have a History Page for a reason. --Josh Clark 02:32, 4 July 2012 (BST)

  18. Yes. It was always an event for the BAR when Team Xtreme came to town. Jesus Sante CFT 04:27, 5 July 2012 (BST)
  19. As a general thing, the niche of PKers matters very little in the big picture of UD given the default conflict (survivors vs zombies) and basic game mechanics (cost of killing vs cost of revival, significance of draining AP with meatshielding and ruining which PKers don't do). BHers, being essentially a niche within the niche, matter even less as a general thing. That being said, within its narrow niche, Team Xtreme has been highly significant. When we will look back in a few years and wonder about who has mattered within the field of bounty-hunting, TX must definitively be mentioned. For that reason, I think they should be included. -- Spiderzed 19:26, 5 July 2012 (BST)
    To specially lower the bar to "Well known presence in a subgroup community" would be to devalue what Historical Groups purpose as a category. It's purpose is to help newer users to understand how the community and culture has grown and particularly the groups which will come up in discussion time and again as being why things are done. Team Xtreme doesn't even make that list for BHers, nor PKers, much less Survivors, Zombies, or Players. And its particularly egregious when most(including these) BHers by nature play poorly(ineffectively) and are not innovative strategically(Beyond RG and some of what DARIS did) in even the limited anti-pker realm, COMBAT REVIVE was a more effective anti-pker group by the numbers than this, 404 and THEM are/were a functionally better example of anti-pker strategy that actually had demonstrable lasting effects on both specific conflicts and the game itself. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 07:20, 7 July 2012 (BST)
    Sorry, Karek, but I've got to disagree with your assessment of Historical category as a tool. If you've ever actually tried to learn about UD history based on groups in this category, you'd be pretty damn confused/frustrated. That's why projects like Zombie Renaissance, Project Timeline, UDThisMonth and others exist. These days Historical Group is nothing more than a badge. I'd argue that TX are probably more deserving of the badge than other groups wearing it, but I don't think they necessarily NEED it to be recognized as a group that contributed to UD's history.~Vsig.png 18:55, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
    Just want to note that both Project Timeline and UDThisMonth use Historical Group status as a criterion for inclusion, so this vote has bearing on those pages. See here and here. Bob Moncrief 21:33, 7 July 2012 (BST)
    Historical Group status is specifically not a criteria for inclusion on PT. That's why you don't see groups like ASS, Brain Central, Mockers or other questionably historic groups but you do see RRF, Fortress, ACC and others. ~Vsig.png 22:24, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
    In this case your disagreement note actually reinforces why this nonsense is nonsense. My statement is based on why this category exists, which was initially to preserve pages of noteworthy groups from deletion during the Crit 12 days so that valuable reference material wouldn't be lost. Since then we've preserved it as a navigational reserve for those groups who we accept as being information-ally important to the mission statement of the wiki(i.e. Providing imporatnt game relevant information). Team Xtreme is an example of a group that will never meet that purpose and shouldn't even be up for a vote. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 20:04, 8 July 2012 (BST)

  24. At some point you have to look at a groups contributions as a whole, not just if they changed the game or were one of the first organized groups six years ago. Otherwise you can pretty much stop adding groups to this category altogether. A lot of groups have had a huge impact on the game and its players without having changed how its played or bringing about new rules or mechanics. A good group that does well, contributes positively in its particular field, and has maintained reasonable longevity in the community should be recognized. TX has done all of that.--Roddy Winters 19:51, 8 July 2012 (BST)
    This is not true. Quantity of stuff they do does not outweigh the quality. And honestly, the people arguing for this have only pointed out the quantity, not the quality.

  2. Convince me. --Rosslessness 18:22, 4 July 2012 (BST)
    Since you asked let me give it a shot. Admittedly, what follows is information that predates me. It is my understanding of events and if its accuracy needs to be called into question, please feel free. How did TX change the game? Undoubtedly, there were BHers before TX. My understanding is that most of them were lone hunters or small groups of 2 to 3. They would come together at places like the RG but not in a permanent strategic way. Was there Pack BHing, yes. Organizations like the DEM were organized and engaged in BHing along with their many other functions. My understanding is that if there were purely BHer groups before the time that TX, Malton Marshals, and the Saints formed in 2008, they were transitory. They specialized and they organized for the sole purpose of hunting bounties and they were good at it, providing a counterpoint to PKing groups which had been around for some time. Helping to create organized opposition lead to BHer events like All saints day in 2008 and the organized opposition to Samhain Slaughter. BHer groups are a feature of the game today. Now, while I might well be unaware of a notable group or two that would damage this argument, one thing I am fairly sure of is that TX was instrumental in introducing BHer arms into super groups. There were super groups before TX, but since their inception from Alliance 45 to Cannonball Crew to SDN, TX was there making their specialized services a part of how groups like this would operate. Regardless of how one feels about BHing groups or supergroups, they are a part of Malton life and TX helped make them what they are today. Long winded but I hope it helps. --Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Friday, 6 July 2012

    Shearbank Liberation Army, Dulston Defense Death Squad, to name a few old BHer groups (or semi-BHer groups) of the old days that has Historical status, Al. Sure, they were limited to a single location and didn't use Rogue's Gallery as heavily as today's BHer groups, but they were still BHer groups. Just...correcting your facts a little there, Al. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 15:36, 6 July 2012 (BST)
    They didn't use RG at all because it didn't exist yet. The concept of bounties didn't even exist. Back then it was just a PK List hosted on Desensitized with screenshots of last known locations. Ironicly, though, it was former members of DARIS, whom the SLA were were at war with that were partially responsible for the modern bounty system. That new group was called The Council of Leaders (new), led by Katthew (and others). They were the real pioneers in Bounty Hunting as are those members of DEM who founded the Rogues Gallery. Just correcting some of your facts, Axe. ~Vsig.png 17:41, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
    Thanks Axe, I figured I missed a few, but the fact remains, these groups were institutional or regionally strategic. I still maintain that the 08 groups brought something new to the table that was not there before and still is there today. TX to me was the most successful and recognized of the newer batch. Their influence was formative and therefore historically significant.--Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Friday, 6 July 2012
    That can be seen both ways. For one, I honestly believed RG was a lot better back then before it moved to it's current home. TX deserves a spot in historical, but not for the reasons you've stated here. It's the same with CK. CK deserves to be historical too, but not for the reasons stated in both CK votes. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 01:05, 7 July 2012 (BST)
    Where are you getting your information regarding dates? I assume it's the wiki, and you don't realise that the history gets wiped every so often, making the History tab inherently unreliable. The Malton Marshals date back to 2006 or so. Fascist Pig Hunters adopted that name and their PKer hunting ways at the beginning of 2006. Pretty sure the CDF's PKer Response Unit (PKRU) dates back to '06 as well, but you'd have to check with them because they don't make much information publicly available. Either way, while TX were certainly notable the last few years, you can in no way call them a founding bounty hunting group. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 02:07, 8 July 2012 (BST)
    My guess is the earliest possible entry in the History tab, although had Al checked their talk page... --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 02:45, 8 July 2012 (BST)
    Yes, that was my guess too. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:09, 8 July 2012 (BST)
    Yes that is where it came from. I was unaware of the history wipes. I mentioned that this all predates me right? I might still argue though that being the principle torch-bearer of a tradition is a historically significant role, as is advancing the work of a predecessor into a more public arena. Without treating this as notable, there are gaps in your timeline. --Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Sunday, 8 July 2012
    Aye. The formation of the groups I mentioned predate me, too; I just read a lot. (And had to set the record straight.) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:48, 8 July 2012 (BST)
    It's also probably worth mention here that the RG list was predated by CDF and DHPD's lists in addition to whatever was running on ressenz/dessenz at the time. There was a point in time where the go to list recommendation was those two groups wiki based PKer bounty lists(which I believe are still somewhat maintained?).--Karekmaps 2.0?! 20:10, 8 July 2012 (BST)

  3. Why are they historical? Because they were effective? Did they change the game? Is this another popularity contest? --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 20:08, 4 July 2012 (BST)
  4. As above. This vote is largely irrelevant, as there is clearly a bandwagon rolling. However, I'm really not seeing this at all. They were... alright and that's about it. If a CV features only events that the applicant actually has to explain then there is not much there. If there were a category for Historical Characters (and I have long believed that there should be), then Josh Clark would make it. Team Xtreme though? Not for me. --Papa Moloch 20:32, 4 July 2012 (BST)
    Edited to add: The menstrual outbursts added to the initial proposal are absolutely absurd. There is no evidence of significant PKer bias in the contrasting votes for TX and Pathetic Bill and there isn't necessarily a need to 'change the game' in order to make the list. The Bills were very original, highly influential and famous both on the map and in the metagame. In short, they added something new. TX, while a good team, were essentially just a later equivalent of other older groups, spent much of their career perceptibly overshadowed by the Saints, embarked upon repeated incarnations of Operation Trenchyname (about which only those directly involved gave even a quarter of a damn) and have a CV upon which half the content relates to their alliances/service to other groups. Of the three examples that Josh has cited in his edit, two involve unheard of 'wars' with very minor groups ('...things of legend'? How embarrassing.) and the other amounts to 'We tagged along on a major event, tried to fuck it up and failed.' It's hardly C4NT stuff.
    As for the alleged 'PKer bias', holy fucking shit. Before slinging that accusation about, try taking off the tinfoil hat and having an objective look at some of the 'Yes' votes: I can see at least 11 that offer no reasoning at all, more that offer specious reasons and more than a few obvious RSVPs to the meatpuppet house-party. In short, even if a couple of PKers are voting without due objective consideration, they aren't even close to leveling the circle jerk score.
    The one thing on which I will agree with Josh is that things should indeed change in this category. However, they need to change in a way that would mean that no-one would bother even proposing a group like TX for Historical Group status. My own interpretation of 'Historical' is less stringent than Karek's, but it's far closer to his than the circle jerk mess that this category has become. If I had my way then about 80% of the current groups would have their status removed and I would never have even allowed Columbine Kids to be put forward at all. --Papa Moloch 19:19, 9 July 2012 (BST)

  10. I liked Team Xtreme. They were good at what they did and weren't obnoxious about it, either. Other groups have gotten Historical due to being so good that they forced other groups to change their tactics to deal with them, but I don't think TX did that. And I really don't think TX had the sort of presence that impacted the suburbs they went through. I'm rather sad to find that they've disbanded though. Until I saw this, I thought they were still active. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 05:30, 5 July 2012 (BST)

    This is the group that most voters here agree were at least famous and good at BHing (meaning they killed a lot of people). And humor?

  13. No. A highly visible and fairly well coordinated bounty hunting fixture for many years, but didn't change the game nor challenge the perimeters, nor do anything singularly more spectacular, sophisticated or successful than any other group. --BOSCH 01:06, 7 July 2012 (BST)
  14. Meh. Even if they were "highly significant" within bounty hunting (and I've seen little indication that they were, they were just very good at it, they didn't change the way people bounty hunt) it's kind of silly to say that that makes you historical. If you say being very good or even the best at a given subsection of the game is noteworthy, you get in to a weird line of argumentation. If there's a really specialised section of the game e.g. people who hunt people who hunt people who hunt zergs, if the people who do that are very good at it, are they historical? No. Because what they do represents a very small aspect of the game which is largely insignificant. If we look at the history of the game, these guys didn't change it in any way; they aren't a landmark on it. They were just very good at playing the game as it was. Not Historical. --Shortround }.{ My Contributions 01:19, 7 July 2012 (BST)

  17. Team Xtreme was a good group filled with players who had class. No one who was ever bountied by one of their members can say that the person who killed them was a dick about it. But they didn't really impact the game enough to justify a historical group. -- Goribus 02:11, 8 July 2012 (BST)
  18. After considering all the arguments on both sides and my own thoughts, I'm going to have to come down on the not historical side. While I always enjoyed playing against Team Xtreme, I don't consider them to have changed the way I or any of my groups played – which, I might remind you ,included the largest PKer groups in the game. Albert Schwan's argument, that they were the first BH group to be part of a "supergroup", can be disproved singlehandedly by CDF in the old days (they were HUGE) and their PKRU, or by the DEM's Malton Marshals branch, both of which were extant several years prior to Team Xtreme's founding.
    In my opinion, your strongest argument for Historical Status is the movies and videos put out by Josh Clark. That man is a star! (N.B. I may be biased by having appeared in his first animated movie. Shifty >_> <_<) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ

Columbine Kids

10 months have passed since the last nomination, which furthermore failed by just one vote. I see it thus as justified to re-approach them and see how well their reputation has kept up.

It has now been much more than a year that any Columbine Kids have been active, let alone orchestrated anything together.

From their very founding day on, they have polarized the UD metagame, going even as far as getting the group put up for deletion vote due to bad taste, or because no one thinks of the children, or whatever the reasoning was for those who voted for deletion. And it wasn't just at the beginning that they shocked and polarized the UD crowd, it even continued throughout their career.

They have not just made impact by their concept, though. They were also effective PKers, racking up massive bounties, performing highly coordinated timed strikes and getting involved in events like the 2008 Wedding Crash or Samhain Slaughter 1 to 3. You also mustn't forget their various school shooting tours they have organized and pulled off on their own.

They were recognized in the Malton Murder Awards 2010 as nominee for Best PKer Group.

Columbine Kids

Now that probably the last member wearing the tags has switched to a different group (welcome to Cobra, YOG :P) and the group as such hasn't coordinated at all for a long while (the forums have been down for months), it's probably about time to recognize Columbine Kids as historical.

From their very founding day on, they have polarized the UD metagame, going even as far as getting the group put up for deletion vote due to bad taste, or because no one thinks of the children, or whatever the reasoning was for those who voted for deletion.

  16. Sigh... Yes And here's why. I despise this group. I hate everything about them. I Loathe and detest the very creaion of it ffs. It's unsavoury, childish glorification of 'shock value' made me uneasy from the first minute I saw some plank wearing the tags two years ago when I started playing, and still, to this day does. However, that's why they work. That was their hook, so to speak.
    The BH'er in me, always wanted to whack a CK. Hell, I wanted to do it with Deej too, should the chance arisen. They made an impact, and much as I dislike the theme of the group, they certainly knew how to grab the eye. They should be remembered, if not for 'cos they were a 'great PK'er' group, then 'cos they were a bunch of knobbers people wanted to kill. A lot.

    how can you compare CK to cornhole? that insults everyones intelligence. we were at least good at what we did.-- The preceding signed comment was added by these amazing looking bitch 05:00 29 March 2011 (UTC)
    Because both CK and Cornhole's chief claim to fame is creating wiki drama through glorifying mass-murderers. But hey, for the lulz, right?--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 16:43, 30 March 2011 (BST)
    Yes, it's what all murderers truly crave: To be represented as borderline-retarded, monosyllabic, repressed homosexuals who kill because they are too stupid to do anything else. That truly is the definition of glory. There are several reasons why comparisons to Cornhoolio are absolutely cretinous, including the subtle distinction between actual satire and 4Chan 'here it is LOL' vomit, the not-exactly subtle distinction between stupid and wasteful murder and mechanised and legalised genocide, and then the entirely obvious distinction between a legitimate group of UD players and a single serial-zerging mass wiki vandal. Somehow though, I suspect that aiding you in grasping these will prove a sisyphean task on a par with trying to teach a particularly stupid dog a card trick. --Papa Moloch 23:34, 30 March 2011 (BST)
    Much of what fuels mass murderers like the Columbine Kids is the desire for notoriety. You feed that notoriety and thereby encourage others. Most UD players never use the wiki so your pisspoor attempt at 'satire' is lost on them: all they see is 'Columbine Kids' tags. Even for those of us who frequent the wiki, the CK page has only got 15000 hits - FFS, even my TSI page has well over 50,000. As for Cornhole, you miss the point entirely - he's not historical, neither was this group. Hint for the future: satire is funny, not merely offensive, as Chris Morris could tell you.--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 20:43, 1 April 2011 (BST)
    Yes and he can also attest to the fact that for every person who enjoys a piece of satire there will be a hundred or more whiny babblers shrieking their butthurt. The fact that you cite Chris Morris as an example in the same post in which you laughably assert that a group from a minor internet browser game could influence potential future mass murderers only underlines just how inexorably stupid you actually are. I suppose then that Chris Morris is a great influence upon the next generation of paedophiles, drug dealers and suicide bombers. After all, if you draw attention to something then that means that people will think that's cool and become more likely to do it themselves, right? As a part of his work Morris has made jokes about Myra Hindley and Peter Sutcliffe, so he runs the risk of inspiring murderers too. Hell, he did it on the television for the viewing of millions.
    Your arguments are becoming increasingly garbled. You assert that Columbine Kids 'feed notoriety and thereby encourage others', then claim that they don't get enough attention to claim influence, and then subsequently cite a man who has an audience of millions and also uses representations of real-life murderers as an example of how satire 'should' be done! I'd suggest that you make up your mind, but it appears that you'd need the world's most powerful microscope simply to find it. --Papa Moloch 17:23, 2 April 2011 (BST)
    Lots of words, many insults, not much substance: looks like I touched a nerve and you're upset. Arguments by numbers for the hard-of-reading, do try to keep up: 1. Morris is funny, CK isn't. Having some wit counts for a lot in satire. 2. Most people playing UD don't read the wiki, so yes, they might well regard CK-tagged characters (shooting survivors in schools, etc.) as glorifying murderers. 3. CK claim historical status partly for stirring up wiki drama but in 6 months, even poor deluded Cornholioo's talk page got more hits than CK's talk page has in nearly two years. It's pretty easy to stir shit up; as for timed strikes, taking part in events, being runner-up in a PKer award, so what? Hardly epoch-making stuff.--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 18:02, 2 April 2011 (BST)
    Not upset at all: I just genuinely enjoy slapping around people who try to present arguments and fail miserably. Note how there's no argument with Paddy, Karek, et al. They make their points in a rational fashion and, regardless of whether I agree or not, get due respect for it. You simply manufacture a fatuous comparison to a mass-zerger and wiki vandal and then, when that fails dismally, you resort to the old 'glorifies'/'encourages copycats'. Even then you screw that up by citing as an example a man whose whole career would, by that measure, have inspired murder, paedophilia and drug abuse (amongst other things) on a truly immense scale. Did anyone in CK ever expect to rival Morris? Not even slightly. Who could with a wiki page and a group name? Still, I'd rather do something a little different and be compared very much unfavourably with him than be yet another lame-wit peddling the same tired references to the same tired sketch from the same tired 70s show.
    As for the number of page hits, an interesting pair of parallels there. Cornholio and TSI? Well, they have at least one thing in common... --Papa Moloch 19:15, 2 April 2011 (BST)
    Well then, hopefully as the first voter here it will be helpful that I agree with you. Claiming that you see them as Cornholio equivalents is both kinda insulting(UDWiki, so I guess it's a bit expected) and irrelevant to whether or not their historical. The Dead were grade A dicks to a lot of people, ask any DHPD memebers, still totally historical. It's not really relevant to the vote Mallrat, did they have a impact on the game that you saw aside from that? That's the question that should be being answered.--Karekmaps?! 19:22, 2 April 2011 (BST)
    Exactly. Emotional responses against and in favor of the CK should not be justification for a no or a yes vote. And the comparison with Cornholio is bullshit. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 20:21, 2 April 2011 (BST)
    Monty Python - now there's a historical group. Karek, my point re Cornhole is that he also created wiki drama, but there's no way he'd be considered historical for that, and to highlight that (as you said), CK's dramatic impact was minor. Paddy: "did they have a impact on the game that you saw aside from that?" - No.--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 21:32, 2 April 2011 (BST)
    (NPOV comment: Papa Moloch has slapped poor Mallrat around like a boss) --Karloth Vois ¯\(°_o)/¯ 16:54, 3 April 2011 (BST)
    Arguments left unrefuted: that CK wasn't funny; that most UD players don't use the wiki; that even Cornhole generated more drama; that CK did nothing new as a PKer group; and that their in-game impact was minor. Moloch's had plenty of chances to come up with arguments rather than hysterical insults, and fluffed his lines every time. As I've said to Karek elsewhere, this has already had more attention from me than it deserves, so I'll leave Moloch to write another rambling essay if he wants.--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 17:08, 3 April 2011 (BST)

  12. No - For the same reason Moloch voted no on the FOD’s bid: The CK "were undoubtedly good, but for me an historical group needs to have made a difference to the game itself. Sadly I don't think that they achieved that." Polarizing the metagame doesn’t change the way the game is played, in my opinion, nor does coordinating themed strikes. It’s true that I didn’t find the CK’s satire particularly funny or effective, but I never questioned their right to exist. They are a highly intelligent, articulate, legitimate group of UD players. But not historical. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 23:50, 31 March 2011 (BST)
  13. No - I almost want to vote Yes to counter the they're offensive and therefore not historical argument. But from a more reasoned standpoint, I agree with Paddy. Trolling like this is fun for the whole family and they deserve a small share of our appreciation for bringing creativity and discussion to the game, just like any other group.

I am probably going to regret pointing this out, but here goes anyway. Strictly speaking CK passed this vote. The policy which is place states that a group must be approved by 2/3rds of voters, with a minimum of 15 votes WITHIN two weeks, i.e. not after two weeks have elapsed. The 15th vote on this was Penguinpyro's no vote at 08:20 on the 28th. At that point there were 10 yes and 5 no votes giving 2/3rds within the two weeks as stipulated by the policy. Gordon 21:19, 10 April 2011 (BST)
It's never been done nor interpreted that way though, and strictly speaking, both Aichon and I still had no votes at that point which would make it 10-7. The policy should probably be clearer. It's a good catch though.-MHSstaff 21:36, 10 April 2011 (BST)

The 4-H

One of the bigger (at one time, at least) and more resilient localized survivor groups in Malton, The 4-H, officially closed their doors on October 6th, 2010. While not exactly a game changer, the Headhunters of Huntley Heights participated in a large number of historic events in Malton, including the defense of Stickling Mall during Shop-a-Thon 2006, the Battle of Blackmore, and the operations of Alliance 45. The group lasted two months shy of five years, secured and maintained two previously uninhabitable suburbs (Huntley Heights and Raines Hills), opened/established the long-utilized Veryard Crescent Revive Point, and employed 105+ members over the course of our time in Malton.. We also established the original public barricade plan, as well as all of the original UDwiki pages for Huntley Heights as part of our efforts to keep the survivors of the Heights informed, safe, and sound.

Unfortunately, over the years the group was decimated by a combination of griefers and a lack of new members, but I hope that those we played with (or against) can fondly remember the audacious 4H that fought the Big Bash in Shearbank (even if we did lose, hah), rather than the skeleton crew left at Vicari when we disbanded.

  7. Yes - I've been involved with the 4-H in some way, shape, or form since I first started playing UD back in '05, be that as an ally or an actual member of the group. We may not have influenced the entirety of Malton, but we most certainly affected Huntley and the suburbs around it rather heavily. That, and we were good at swapping bullets with quite a lot of PKers. :D --RagnaRover 02:40, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

  9. No - Unlike the uninformed masses above, I have heard of the 4H. I know enough of their history to say that they were pretty much only relevant in Huntley Heights. They were a good group, to be sure, but they didn't add much to the experience of other players - beyond being a bullet sponge for a fair number of PKers and PKer groups. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 22:59, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Big Bash 3

BB3. Many of you were fortunate enough to have been a part of it or taken apart by it. For those of you who were, there's no need to explain any of this stuff to you since you were there. You saw it. You felt it. For those that missed it, however, it was something BIG, and it had a planned beginning and end.

Game Impact: We began in the wake of Escape on June 3rd of last year. BB3 started out in the southwest corner of Malton, did a giant looparound the city, had to pause periodically to let folks catch up since we were moving too fast, and finished things up 4 months and a week later with dozens upon dozens of our tag-wearing group members descending on the historic Whetcombe Park, in tribute to those that went On Strike. During that time, we ruined partied in 48 suburbs, though we also ate the brains of dozens of other suburbs that were fortunate enough to be adjacent to those 48. We moved through suburbs so quickly that most survivors never even knew we were coming until their suburb was ruined, and though no official count was kept, it's probably safe to say that thousands, if not tens of thousands, of brains were eaten by our members in the four months we were active. Backing that up, the survivor to zombie ratio shifted from about 70:30 when we started, to more like 40:60 when we ended.

Community Impact: I believe that at our peak we were the largest organized group in the game, which is made all the more impressive by the fact that we had numerous other groups that joined us while keeping their own tags, plus a massive feral cloud that could be felt from suburbs away. A cloud so renowned, in fact, that more than once since we disbanded, many of us have heard the cry of an ignorant survivor as they declared, "Its [sic] Big Bash 3!" when a random zombie breached a building. It's happened so often, in fact, that the Philosophe Knights even satirized the occurrence during a play they staged. The fact that the Malton Herald & Sun featured BB3, coupled with the fact that we disbanded suddenly (but intentionally) while we were still the second largest organized group in the game probably led to the confusion.

Strategic Impact: We advocated the use of attack windows in addition to strike teams, which ensured that even without coordination and communication, we still struck as a horde. Tactics such as these are what led to a healthy Fort Creedy and Giddings Mall falling within hours of each other after we moved into the suburb. Having a horde didn't hurt either, of course.

Wiki Impact: Did I mention that we have a kick-ass group page? And that we had received over 3000 page views of a countdown we posted a week in advance of when we officially started? We were also the most-linked group page for most of our run.

Other Impact: BRA!NZ.

Yes

  1. Yes - The party may have ended, but we still have the memories, and there's no denying that we made a big impact while we were around. I've been waiting for the four-month inactive timer to finish up so I could finally post this, and today is the day. Aichon 22:46, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
  2. Yes - If you want to talk about things with an impact in 2010, Big Bash should be high up on your list if you don't want to be laughed at. -- Spiderzed 22:53, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
  3. Yes - Wow has it been four months already. I was there and it was indeed groundbreaking. Just look at the suburb map history for June, July, August, and particularly September of 2010 and you'll see just what kind of impact was made. The group made a lasting impact on the game which lasted many, many weeks after (and to an extent before) the events. It was definitely historic. ~Vsig.png 22:55, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

  6. Yes - I don't think a horde has ever moved around the map so fast. Good times and great memories.-- Skoll Die 01:45, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

  8. Just because it didn't come up against the same survivor opposition as BB2 (and therefore won't be remembered as much for great battles, impact etc.) doesn't mean it isn't worthy of wearing the historical tag. Just because we were too weak to make any notable stands against BB3 doesn't make BB3 worse in itself. -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 05:34, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

  17. Yes -
    This Big Bash triumphed.
    I'm making a note here, HUGE SUCCESS.
    It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
    It's the third Big Bash:
    We killed who we could because we must;
    For the good of all of us-
    At least the ones who are dead.
    -
    But there's no sense crying over every mistake,
    You just keep on killing 'till you run out of hate.
    And the slaughter gets done
    And you cut the flow of guns
    To the people who are still alive.
    -
    I am still hungry.
    I'm being so sincere right now.
    Even though we ate your heart and killed you.
    And tore you to pieces.
    And threw every piece into our stomachs.
    As you died it hurt because
    We were so happy for you.
    -
    But those points of action brought a beautiful time
    To a great faction, who's strength only climbed
    So I'm GLaD the bash returned, think of all the meals we've turned
    Into the people who are not alive.
    -
    Be lucid and vote Yes
    You know it deserves to be recalled
    Unless you find something else that moved you
    Maybe Escape II
    That was a joke, ha ha, FAT CHANCE
    Anyway your brain is great
    It's so delicious and moist.
    -
    Look at me still talking when there's murder to do
    When I look out there it makes me GLaD we killed you
    So those breathers better run, 'cause we're loose to have some fun
    On the people who are still alive.
    -
    And believe me we were not alive.
    We murdered people and were not alive.
    We felt fantastic and were not alive.
    While you were dying we were not alive.
    And when you died we remained not alive.
    Not alive.

  2. No I thought I'd be the only one. The Impact was much less than either of its predecessors and was nothing new. (I can see why people would vote yes, but I've always fallen back on the question "Did they change the game?" when I vote. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 23:00, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
    I can see where you're coming from, but by your standard I don't think that we'll ever see any new groups enter the ranks of Historical Group, which isn't fair to those that are worthy of note. And if you're looking for game changing or new, it shifted the population balance drastically and introduced a new method of coordinating a feral horde that I have not heard of being used prior to it at this scale. As Spiderzed said, any mention of 2010 should include it. Aichon 23:16, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
    Remind me why you voted for Blackmore XVIII as an historic event again. -MHSstaff 04:22, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
  3. No - BB3 was impressive and it did demonstrate that the survivor player base is evaporating (confirmed by the recent GSGM). Furthermore, it is now clear that the remaining metagamers are basically zombies. So the fallout from the bash has lead to a significant revelation. However when considering a big bash or a big prick or a mall tour or escape etc, I think it's enough to include the first of each of these events as historically significant, rather than each subsequent one.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 04:13, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
    I have to disagree with this statement. The survivor player base is not evaporating. The zombie player base is. When I checked the stats yesterday to update Organization XIII's page, the population favors the survivors, and it still favors survivors right now. As of right now, the current ratio stands at 39% zombies, 61% survivors. I'd like to know: where have all the zombie metagamers gone to? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 04:33, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
    I don't really agree with Giles, but his argument is more about the organized, player base who metagame/use forums/are in groups rather than the population as a whole. -MHSstaff 04:56, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
  4. No - I say this as somebody who's zed took part in BB3, or at least tried. I had extreme difficulty ever finding the horde, and ending up sitting outside Caiger Mall for 3 months. I find myself agreeing with Giles, Ross, and sadly, Anime Sucks. This wasn't really on the scale of the other bashes, imo.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 07:34, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
  5. No - as Yonnua above, the third Bash didn't bother to update the wiki enough, anyone trying to follow via the wiki would find themselves a suburb or two behind, wandering ruins. Seemed kinda selfish. Plus the grande finale we were promised was a waste of time sitting around waiting for nothing for a few weeks. Saying that, it was kinda historical, and had its moments, but fuck it - am punishing its inadequacies with a NO. --    : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 09:13, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Big Survivors Little Survivor

Anyway, as unlikely to succeed as it is, I'd like to nominate Big Survivors Little Survivor for Historical status.

You probably have no idea who they were. It's unsurprising.

To Paraphrase.

  • BSLS were the first group of any description to be created in Borehamwood.
  • BSLS members hold the records for both "largest survived suicide repair in a perma death city." (350ap) and "largest suicide repair ever attempted" (529ap)
  • BSLS were the largest organised survivor group, before the meta combined all survivor groups into a single lump.
  • BSLS helped implement the standardised 28.06 radio channel throughout borehamwood alongside Galaxy News Radio
  • BSLS helped in the hunt for Game Over actively tracking Borehamwood's only publicised PK'er group. In the end we managed to wipe out their two leaders, whilst other survivors finished the job.
  • BSLS had Borehamwood's only international celebrity, namely Dermot O'leary. Famed throughout the city for his habit of suicide repairs without telling anyone.

So what? I here you say. Did the BSLS do anything game changing or unique? Well I believe they did.

  • BSLS helped discover, understand and fix the single most game breaking error in Urban Dead history, namely the free repair of all buildings with a repair cost of more than 150ap. Rather than exploit a bug that could of led to the reclamation of the entire ruined city in only a month and against the advice of some radical survivors, the Little Survivor's suspended all repairs, and tried to stop the game from massively screwing zombies. As one member commented. "We've stayed ahead of the zombies so far, we don't need this."

And on a slightly more annoying note,

  • BSLS were finally wiped out when User:Rosslessness requested Kevan bring snow to Urban dead. Less than a day later the last of the group was devoured by a feral who simply followed their footprints.

Which is why you now get....

  • Although it's freezing in Monroeville and Borehamwood, the snow isn't heavy enough to leave footprints there.

So there you go. I look forward to your, "WWWHHOOOOOOO?" comments. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 17:38, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

  1. Meh - Being the first group in the city, if true, would be worthy if there were some separate category for borehamwood, but the rest looks like padding the resume - finding a bug, doing survivor things like working with other groups and repairing buildings, getting killed when zombies found the last member, etc. This isn't to diminish the fun they had playing or the significance of the group in their own context, mainly I just can't get excited enough about a borehamwood group to put them on par with the historical entries from the main game.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 18:24, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

The Grove

The Grove formed out of a loose coalition in Judgewood in the early months of the game's existence. Seeing the need for a combined effort in an area lean on resources, the coalition became The Grove, named for their headquarters, the Brentnal Grove PD. Active in defending nearby Caiger Mall in many of the early seiges, they were a fixture in the NW corner until disbanding in 2009. In addition to their dedicated defence of Judgewood, the group made periodic tours out of their home base, lending a hand in a number of mall seiges. This group fought long and hard in this vulnerable corner, and as a result were one of the first groups to encounter Extinction in their early attempts to dominate the NW, and kept tbeir headquarters a safe haven for survivors.^^^^

    Anyone from the Northwest should have been aware of them and their influence in the area. They're just one of those groups that had a decently large impact in the areas they helped out, and had lots of cool people with them. That said, last I checked, they don't meet #6 above (i.e. they haven't been disbanded for at least 4 months). Can someone from The Grove confirm that they have indeed been inactive for 4 months already? I've only seen their former group members start joining new groups as of a week or two ago, so I was under the impression that was when they had disbanded (but since they were on tour for so long before that, I may have just missed it). If someone can confirm it for me, I'll switch my vote to a Yes. Aichon 19:29, 12 October 2010 (BST)

    Hi, thanks for the questions. Aichon: Bilko disbanded the group on their forums in August of 2009. He said: "As the last remaining Elder in game I guess it's up to me to lock up the place.

    1.) They aren't insignificant because they focused on one suburb, they're insignificant because they never got it safe enough that they could move farther out (like the RRF does in Greater Ridleybank), because they were never powerful enough to have that much of an effect. 2.) Lots of groups attend sieges. EVIL went to escape, and they aren't historical. 3.) Going on a tour is not historical. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 17:10, 21 October 2010 (BST)

  3. Yes, but the page needs to be expanded - The Penny Heights OGs were one of the first PKer groups to step forward and say: "Hey, we're a PKer group.", which at that time, was not common. Most groups of that time were still pretending to be pro-survivor, so they enjoy the plausible deniability of being a "survivor group", but could get away with PKing random people. Unfortunately, it seems that their low numbers, a schism in the group (note the leadership change), and the open declaration of being a PKer group, hastened their demise. Despite being a small group, you can see that they yellowed Penny Heights, took over two hospitals, and even took a stand with DARIS against the CoL. Also, if you look at the history for the page, Max Grivas was advocating that they be nominated for Historical Groups back in 2007. --Akule Maker of fine, hand-crafted UDWiki sass since 2006 -- Akule School's back in session™ 22:09, 19 October 2010 (BST)

Ackland Abattoir

way back in the day, actually right near the beginning of the game, the Ackland Abattoir ravaged havercroft, and Ackland Mall Security with its attacks and tricks. being such a plight to the suburb itself way back when, countless scores of survivors, newbies, and now veteran players fell victim to their tactics. As of right now, this group has been disbanded for quite some time, and only has one remaining member who does not recruit, yet proudly keeps his group status on his profile the same. i remember seeing them shortly before/after the Battle of the Bear Pit. i commune with this remaining member quite often actually, as it is nice to reminisce about the good old days. they terrorized our suburb for a long while, and i believe they deserve the due credit Nuerotoxic2213 19:30, 4 September 2010 (BST)

It's been ages since I've seen any of the members active, and it's also been ages since I've seen them on the stats page. The group was made up of a bunch of members on a Taiwanese bulletin board system under the same name of the group. They came into existence in late 2006, and held strong until early 2007 (from what I know, at least). Their base of operations was situated around Shearbank. They've reached over 200 in weeks, took a small part in Battle of Blackmore, and were a major force in defending Shearbank from Shacknews after Shacknews came in and ravaged Blackmore. If anything, they were probably the largest group whose players originated from Taiwan. And believe me, their presence gave Malton a good feel of having a mixed-culture population, especially since the majority of the players in Urban Dead speaks English.

  1. Yes - Those were good old days, all right, and these guys were a big help in many major sieges back then.

    Is there any actual proof that they were zerging? --Shatari 12:25, 4 September 2010 (BST)
    Yes. Cross reference any member with the list in the second and third posts of the Zerg Liste thread. Then use the search button to search for that character's name. All additions to the zerg liste are the result of someone submitting evidence to Resenz. It's then evaluated by the Zerg Liste staff. If someone's on that list there's a 95% chance they're a legitimate zerg. The other 5% are coincidental mistakes. The system is not perfect, but if you don't get yourself off the list you're assumed to be a zerg. As it stands several members of PTT are still on the list, and are still being listed. So yeah, they zerg and there's evidence of it. Any other questions? - Goribus 08:35, 8 September 2010 (BST)
    Ye- if 99% of them don't speak english, how do they get off? What does Resenz to for international speaking ud players? -- LEMON #1 11:56, 8 September 2010 (BST)
    That's not Resenz' problem DDR. There are legitimate non zergers on the list, but until they take the effort to go to Resenz to prove otherwise they're still going to be on the list. Also using the not speaking English excuse isn't really valid. Especially since the RDD has about 25% or more members from Europe that speak English as a second, or in some cases, third language. If the 1% of the group that does speak/read English can't go to Resenz and play interpretor for the rest of the group it's no one's problem but their own. If you want them off the liste then go and contact them and tell them what they'll need to do. Had she not taken a leave of absence I'd ask our own Asian member to go and talk to them assuming they speak the same language. Ours speaks English and Chinese, but I think she also speaks German and maybe French. She was a smart girl that one. - Goribus 10:34, 10 September 2010 (BST)
    How does this list work? Do the users compare IP addresses, or is it simply "similar sounding names"? How wide spread was the alleged zerging, and was the majority of the group made aware of it? Further, were any members of the group informed that they were on the list in a language that they could understand? It's easy to accuse someone of zerging, but it's unfair to do so without proof. Can you link to some proof please?--Shatari 17:51, 10 September 2010 (BST)
    For listing purposes a number of criteria is used. Similar naming habits, profile writing styles, creation dates, etc. Everyone that gets listed (or not) is done so because someone went to Resenz and posted a screencap/dumbwit/iwit/etc. It's then evaluated by the Zerg Liste Staff. For purposes of de-listing it's as simple as posting screenshots/dumbwits/iwits showing that the characters are seperated. In the case of mistaken identity deals the owner of each character must go to Resenz and post there for IP verification purposes. As the people that staff the Zerg Liste are moderators and admins for that purpose they can look up IPs of the people posting. From there IPs can be matched against known proxies and more or less pinpoint where said person is posting from. No one tells them that they're on it, as I've said that's not the Zerg Liste's problem.
    Had you used the link I posted you would see hundreds of names on that list. Also a fairly detailed post about how the list works, how to get off of it, how to post to it, etc. The amount of time for listing, investigating, delisting, etc. is fairly high enough as it is. How is one supposed to track down a specific character to tell them they've been listed anyway? Hmmm? As for showing you proof? Go fuck yourself. I don't need to prove shit to you if you're too lazy to do the work yourself. I can't be fucked to track down some mythical memberlist for dozens of random characters and do individual searches to prove to you that someone was listed. Sorry, but I have a life outside of this game and I'm not going to waste hours of my life to win some stupid argument on the internet because someone's so dense they can't do research for themselves. - Goribus 03:15, 11 September 2010 (BST)
    I was told it was standard to be told you were executed for zerging as per the Zerg Liste in game when someone killed a perpetrator of zerging. Do you yourself not follow this practice then? -- LEMON #1 03:35, 11 September 2010 (BST)
    Sure, when I'm zerg hunting with a breather and run into a zerg. The zerg liste copy paste is in every kill taunt. But to go out of my fucking way to randomly inform what is literally hundreds of people they're on the list? Yeah, that's not going to happen. You're being naive to think anyone would go out of their way to track down each and every person on the Zerg Liste to tell them they're on a list. Not to mention it's imfuckingpossible to do so. Go ahead, and try to track down just one random player that isn't associated in the meta-game. I dare you. See how much time and effort you're going to waste to track down one single solitary person playing a single random character. I don't staff the Zerg Liste, I hunt from it and I'm in the ZHU. ZHU =/= Zerg Liste Staff. - Goribus 07:50, 11 September 2010 (BST)
    I don't remember me saying that. Do you remember me saying that? -- LEMON #1 14:06, 11 September 2010 (BST)
    Wait, so you're accusing a group of being zergers, and then you're mad when someone asks you to provide some form of evidence? Have you ever heard of "Burden of Proof"?--Shatari 03:58, 11 September 2010 (BST)
    He already sorta linked you to where said evidence is. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 04:09, 11 September 2010 (BST)
    But there's no real evidence there, just some names on a list, devoid of all context or evidence (for what little is needed to get on the list in the first place). The only evidence is that there are players in the group allegedly on the list (Goribus isn't willing to list any names, so I have no reason to assume it's true) and someone allegedly accused them of zerging at some point. Since the only way they can be cleared is to respond to some random list on the internet in a language the majority of them don't speak, it's unlikely that they were ever aware of the list. The site can only view IP addresses of people who actually post on that forum (which is coincidentally the only solid evidence that can be brought against inconspicuous zergers), so he's not even linking to real evidence. Linking to a page with thousands of names and saying "See? PROOF! Don't like it? Fuck you! Prove me wrong!" is not very convincing and does nothing to shift the burden of proof.--Shatari 06:05, 11 September 2010 (BST)

  4. Was going to not vote because I had some idea that they were before my time, but I specifically remember seeing these guys with about 200 members before I found their wiki page for the firs time. This is a vote towards the fact they they've been huge for years and yet I'd never seen or heard of them in-game at all, not once. Yeah, they're cute and it's great that this established UD as an international game that transgressed language barriers, yada yada, and I won't mind if they do become historical for that reason. But I still can't find myself supporting it. -- LEMON #1 11:00, 4 September 2010 (BST)
    I don't wanna vote either side, so don't consider this when tallying up the votes, but I echo DDR's sentiment that a group that big should have had a greater in-game relevance than they did. Their impact wasn't small, but it was 99.9% based on what they were, not what they did. I'm decidedly undecided about this one but I feel that my reasoning is worth pointing out. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 13:46, 4 September 2010 (BST) this was originally an abstain but historical voting policy states there may only be yes or no, so I removed the header and placed it up to the rest of voting. -- LEMON #1 14:52, 4 September 2010 (BST)
  5. Murdered these guys over and over and over again. Most of their members were just standing logins. Did I mention the LoD wiped the floor with them when we only had 12 members?

The Crimson Clan

Yep, you read it - The Crimson Clan no longer operates in Urban Dead. Started in April 4th, 2007, The Clan made its first triumphs defending Dakerstown against zombie hordes - most notably Extinction. After few months of operating (and growing in numbers) The Clan took Havercroft and Ackland Mall as its home.

During the time in Havercroft (which lasted until the beginning of 2010) The Clan reached its peak in numbers (over 100 members working under the group tag) and also were among Top 10 Groups in the game. Clan also worked for keeping up the Mall and various resource buildings around it - mainly NTs - and also participated in the many sieges of Ackland during this time, gaining some reputation among the regular Mall residents. --Waak 20:16, 11 July 2010 (BST)

Too bad the Clan didn't become historic after all. But if we can't be remembered this way, I'm sure we'll be remembered in others. If anyone wants to contact the few of us that remain, our forums are still more or less active. Bye Crimson, these few years have been good ones. Rest in peace. --Jsrbrunty 22:49, 25 July 2010 (BST)

  6. Yes. I've been out of the game for a while, but I have some very good memories of the Crimson Clan, and I think we had a pretty big effect on the areas we worked in. Also, I refute the allegations of zerging below. I have tried to stay up to date with goings-on, and have no knowledge of recent alt abuse within the Clan. I'd suggest that all those below examine their sources, if they have any, rather than use zerging as a cover for in-game rivalries and deny this influential group the recognition they deserve. --LK Oddjob 19:32, 16 July 2010 (BST)
    Did you actually read the resenz thread linked below? It's hardly a matter of opinion. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 19:42, 16 July 2010 (BST)
    I myself was involved in the alt controversy, but if you'd care to note, that was resolved three years ago. We worked over an area of several suburbs, and at the time thought it reasonable to have alternate characters, provided they were kept separate. I acknowledge that at times some members gave in to temptation and used more than one character in the same operation, but that was the exception. I regret my actions then, but they were restricted to a few members of the group. Yes, the clan wasn't infallible, but we learned from our mistakes, and I consider we have more than regained respect in the years since then. --LK Oddjob 20:09, 16 July 2010 (BST)
    I don't know about you, but I consider multiple alts in the same group zerging. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 09:48, 17 July 2010 (BST)
    Its not, you can have 2 alts in the same group, but you can't have them in the same suburb, or 10 squares to be safe about it. Now it may be bad form (if you do it to boost on the stats page), but it is allowed.--Raddox MurTangle 20:29, 17 July 2010 (BST)
    That's still considered alt abuse. The DEM have been villified for years as a result and eventually recanted it. It was also one of the elements that led to the downfall of the Imperium (if I remember correctly). Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 20:49, 17 July 2010 (BST)
    It may be considered alt abuse, but technically it is not.--Raddox MurTangle 21:58, 17 July 2010 (BST)
    There are certain things that are disagreed upon. What if your character is 7 or 8 block from another? What if the horde of one character moves a little faster than expected and hits the suburb of another? Can the human character take a look around? Must the zombie specifically avoid buildings seen by the human? There is a gray area. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 22:13, 17 July 2010 (BST)
    10 squares apart to be safe, If you unknowingly or knowingly bring an alt within that distance than will suffer a search rate drop and a hit rate drop. So by game mechanics you are zerging. No gray area there. --Raddox MurTangle 22:17, 17 July 2010 (BST)
    So if you make a new character who happens to spawn within those ten blocks of another, you're zerging? And it's perfectly fine to have one character find a target, attack him, flee, and have a second character finish him off, so long as they never go within those magical ten blocks of each other? --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 22:39, 17 July 2010 (BST)
    From what I've seen, there's a roughly 24 hour time limit you need to stick to between moving out and moving in with someone else, which means that you may as well just rest the first character and AP up again. As for spawning, from my own experiences, it seems to have some kind of an effect but I don't know if it triggers a full-blown flag or if I just had some shitty luck, but the only way around it really is to just get the fuck out of Dodge and let things right themselves. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 22:43, 17 July 2010 (BST)
    It is 24 hours, your right, and if you spawn a new player within 10 squares of an old one then you should move them away as fast as possible. But all this does not matter if your dealing with a proxy zerger, because they do not suffer the lowered rates. That's a different discussion for a different time.--Raddox MurTangle 23:31, 17 July 2010 (BST)
    10 squares apart, you say? I noticed this group centers around Ackland Mall. If you take a look here, it states, "Please do not put one alt on each side of Caiger Mall and claim that this constitutes "separate suburbs."" --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 01:21, 21 July 2010 (BST)
    I'm not saying they are not zerging, I know how bad it was when I was running a group there and I already made my vote as a no if you look down there V. All I am saying is that 10 spaces is a suburb, so the rule is "keep em a suburb apart" so basically keep your people 10 spaces apart.--Raddox MurTangle 08:32, 21 July 2010 (BST)
    Also, email Kevan and ask him for yourself, the zerg mechanics will not kick in if the same IP has 2 people in the same group if they are 10 spaces away.--Raddox MurTangle 08:35, 21 July 2010 (BST)
  7. Yes. I consider we've contributed a lot to the game (especially the Havercroft area) over the years. At our best, we were well known to people all over Malton, not just in our patch of ground. There seems to be a lot of argument over the zerging issue. The Clan used to zerg openly, as did many groups at the time. As it became less acceptable and more groups turned non-zerging, our founder also passed a ban on it. Despite our previous zerging, this rule was followed and the few who didn't go along with it were disciplined accordingly. That rule was made over 2 and a half years ago. I really don't understand what all the fuss is about now. --Jsrbrunty 20:08, 17 July 2010 (BST)
  8. Yes. In protest to dumb policies I'm voting yes on everything up for historical voting until forever.

    I can understand that, given that I've known other people who made the same mistake, but that you stayed in a group that knowingly supported it is what I'm questioning, as is the fact that you're still supporting them now. Aichon 23:34, 22 July 2010 (BST)
    The Clan didn't support zerging after the ban was passed within the group. May I repeat that that was over 2 years ago. Since then we never supported zerging knowingly, even in the smallest way. --Jsrbrunty 23:08, 23 July 2010 (BST)

    And one more thing. The Clan was home to CyAdora (aka SillyLillyPilly). She happens to be a major rapist, and in Shartak, the most well known by far. This is the worst she's done in UD, but in Shartak, she definitely crossed a line, and ended up spurring one of the largest controversies in the game's history. This is just one bad apple, but following Giles's excellent train of thought, it doesn't exactly encourage us to honor the group with the title of historical. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 09:31, 17 July 2010 (BST)

Also, I don't sit well with their logic to abuse alts because "Pkers are asshats". Havercroft is a blight on all of Malton. I will never go back because of the amount of zerging players in the area.

  2. Maybe if they were the 1st, but if there were 100 others before them they can't really be that special. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 21:43, 15 June 2010 (BST)
  3. Nay - I would've never heard of them if I didn't make a point of maintaining the formatting of the suburb group listings. I'm afraid I've never seen any effects that they've caused or have heard of anyone working alongside them or commending them for their efforts. Really, this is the very first time I've ever heard anyone talk about them at all. Aichon 22:17, 15 June 2010 (BST)

  9. No - Not this guy again. -- 02:23, 16 June 2010 (BST)
  10. No - "I, and about 3 other people are the only surviviors of when we disbanded. We have now formed the 82nd Airborne Division". Those are your words, which to me sounds like there was something about the 101st that made you want to change the name to the 82nd. Personally, I don't even care what the reasons are because that tells me that the group isn't really dead--just shambling along under a new guise. And quite obviously slouching because as Aichon above, if I did not stalk suburb pages I wouldn't have even heard of the 101st. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 08:14, 16 June 2010 (BST)

  15. No - Hibernaculum 20:23, 16 June 2010 (BST)
  16. No - I never even heard of this group before. The only reason I saw this is because I was looking at the Escape nomination. All this group did was, quote: "took back nummerous malls and even played a main role in taking back creedy once." Sorry but that's nothing special. --FallUpStairs 21:23, 16 June 2010 (BST)
  17. No - First, seems to me that you just changed the name of the group. And as most people here, never heard of you. Taking back some malls and a fort once doesn't make you historical. --KyleStyle 22:40, 16 June 2010 (BST)

    I said MOST. Most of the people who would have supported this have either quit a long time ago, Or are laying flat dead outside the woodbourne building. And most of these "no" votes are from people who have nothing better to do than spam "no" about groups that were disbanded LONGGGG befor they even joined this game.-- Jerrel tlk (82nd!) (Project Unwelcome!). 00:11, 24 June 2010 (BST)
    Whinge much? Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 00:15, 24 June 2010 (BST)
    No, it's about you trying to promote one group from a big piece of homogeneous shit demographic of groups, all of which are "1000TH AIRBOURNE MILITARY BATTALION CORPS PEACE ANTI ZOMBIE FORCE 36TH BRIGADE INFANTRY SWAT CORPS SPECIAL OPS" and never really got anywhere and no one recognises, let alone remembers. And what the fuck, even by your logic, your group doesn't stand the test of time. You cry because it won't make historical because no one remembers is and those that do aren't around to vote it in. If it were historical, by definition it wouldn't have the problem of disappearing into the pages of history without anyone remembering it. -- 05:19, 24 June 2010 (BST)
    Why would you say it in response to jorm unless it was in directed at him? Don't try to weasel out now with that "most" crap. As for the rest of your excuse, I accidentally kicked a bouncy ball into another kid's head during recess on January 25th, 1993. Don't ask me why I remember that, but it stuck with me. I can hear you asking now, "why should I care about that?" Well, just as my playground mistake from 17 years ago is of no historical importance to anyone else, the same can be said of your group. If your group ever was that important, you should have put them up for historical status back in 2007. As it is, you have no room to complain since you knew what you were getting into when you nominated the group. Aichon 13:20, 24 June 2010 (BST)
    Sure, Go ahead and call us a, what did you call it? A..."big piece of homogeneous shit demographic of a group?" I mean, I GUESS that's cool of you to do. But, Either way....-- Jerrel tlk (82nd!) (Project Unwelcome!). 13:48, 24 June 2010 (BST)

Escape

I was told I had to do this through here, but I'll keep it short. Escape is over - it was always designed to end on June 1, something that was heavily advertised throughout the duration of the movement. If you could pass me on this so I can go ahead and start writing my memoirs, I'd be most appreciative. -Captain Video 05:56, 3 June 2010 (BST)

Yes (Escape)

  1. Yes - Definitely one of the most interesting and highly publicised events in a looooooooong time. -- 06:10, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  2. Hell yes - Absolutely. --Sophie ◆◆◆ CAPD 06:22, 3 June 2010 (BST)

  4. Yes - Same reasons as DDR. μnholy®eign Dual nature player 06:52, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    Yes - It was interesting and even though I did not participate, the numbers were large enough that it deserves a mention. --Travis Wells not signed properly -- 08:42, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  5. Yes - Most certainly. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 08:31, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  6. Yes, yes and thrice yes - twas verily bloody good fun, m'lud. Chief Seagull squawk 09:04, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  7. Yes Events do not need to be successful to be historical and anything that gathers that many brains into one big buffet most certainly counts as significant! --Honestmistake 10:09, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    Incredibly Weak Yes - I'd prefer it to be a historical event, in all honesty, but I don't see why it can't be both (assuming someone makes a page for the event).--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 10:51, 3 June 2010 (BST) Changin' mah vote.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 11:27, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  8. Yes - Largest group on the stats page by far in a good while, lots of publicity, and clearly significant by the numbers that turned up on both sides --ORakoon 11:49, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  9. Yes - Utter failure but a good try--Weed.jpgArthur DentWeed.jpg BIN LADEN IS DEAD!!!!! 12:44, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    Weak Yes - Has been definitively the most significant event this year so far. (Of course, the opposition consists of the umpteenth Battle of Krinks and St. Aiden's zerg army trying to reclaim Ridleybank, so this isn't really a badge to be proud of.) -- Spiderzed 12:54, 3 June 2010 (BST) Screw that, others are right. We need a NPoV page on the event and cover that as historic, not that group. -- Spiderzed 18:55, 10 June 2010 (BST)
  10. Yes - A historic fail, but historic none-the-less. Asheets 13:13, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  11. Yes - There's a blurred line between an event and a group that sets itself a time-limited objective/reason to exist/whatever, but this doesn't count against it as a historical group IMO. Escape had good flavour (lol), a new idea, a large following and a large zombie response. Historical. Yes. Garum 13:17, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  12. Without a bloody doubt, Yes - The sheer momentum it picked up in such a short space of time, and given that it came from absolutely nothing in the first place, people are gonna remember this. Anyone who was there saw the numbers present, both inside and out after the zeds came. PK'ers came, BH'ers came... it was the place to be. And for a while, there was an atmosphere of excited hope buzzing around the place, something the game had been lacking for too long. F'kin yes man. GG Escape, GG.

  14. Yes I don't see why not. As a group, the largest I have ever seen, by the way, it was one of the more bizarre moments of Urban Dead. It certainly deserves to be remembered, though perhaps under events as opposed to groups? --The Prophet of Life 19:01, 3 June 2010 (BST)

  16. Yes - Obviously. --AORDMOPRI ! T 21:02, 3 June 2010 (BST)

  39. Yes - Although the coordination was pathetic, and many were slaughtered, it was an excellent group and event. In little over a month, this group was able to gain 400+ members. It's double the size of RRF, but only ran up until June 1st. Even though nothing was accomplished, either because the zombies had overtaken Ellicott or because Kevan didn't care, its a historic group nonetheless.--SykoKiller666 14:50, 6 June 2010 (BST)

    If you could have the other 13 sign, I'd really appreciate it. -Captain Video 02:29, 9 June 2010 (BST)
  52. Yes Even though it failed, it still sent reverberations throughout the game. It unified 500+ people, and is one of the largest groups/ events in Urbandead history. Just because something doesn't succeed or change things doesn't mean it shouldn't be historical - like a German land war in Russia during the winter. We all learn about that in history class, don't we?--alevins 04:49, 9 June 2010 (BST)
  53. Yes The fail is irrelevant. It was an eye catching event and impacted the game. --Jesus Sante 12:56, 9 June 2010 (BST)

    Pfffft, your group smells like feet. My group, however, had a massive effect on the game, and should already be remembered by all. We should be historical. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 21:47, 12 June 2010 (BST)

  60. Yea There was so much talk about the great Escape that people from all over Malton came to the event. It may have failed, but the participants gave it their best shot, so they should be remembered. Canis Caeli 6:44, 15 June 2010 (BST)
  61. Yea - the group cause the event. Which was a significant note in the timeline. Therefore, the group is historical. Much like Adolf Hitler is historical, for being someone involved in one of the protagonists in the second world war. Flawless logic, right there. :3 -- Rahrah is not too happy about another dead lexicon. 21:55, 15 June 2010 (BST)

    I believe the word your looking for, as the flawless comeback of all time is "YOU'RE flawless logic." -- Rahrah is not too happy about another dead lexicon. 17:37, 16 June 2010 (BST)
    More like how the Jews aren't historical, because, despite being majorly involved in WW2, they're still around in abundance and didn't achieve their aim to be not massacred.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 08:11, 16 June 2010 (BST)
    The Jews who died in the holocaust are remembered, and shall be for a long time, because they were the ones who suffered most due to the Holocaust. (As will the Nazis who were the perpetrators.) However, those that had less to do with the event, like the Romani and the Slavs are less remembered. Much like if one were to be asked about the event Escape, the first group that would come to mind would be "Escape", rather than "No Escape" or "That huge group of zombies that ruined it for everyone". This will probably be moved to the talk page soon. -- Rahrah is not too happy about another dead lexicon. 17:37, 16 June 2010 (BST)
    Can we just agree that you all lose at logic because of Godwin's Law? Aichon 18:08, 16 June 2010 (BST)
    I was waiting for someone to realise... ;) -- Rahrah 18:12, 16 June 2010 (BST)
  62. Yes - For the record I think this entire category is retarted. But my "no" vote from earlier was only with the intention of getting one of you apparently too lazy 400+ people to write a brief analysis of what happened to your group, so future generations could look on the historical page and have an idea what it was all about. The fact that a group of 400 people can't muster a single individual with the wiki-fu to properly memorialize their own passing is a shame. Sigh. But anyways I never intended to deny this worthy group of the historical status that it deserves. Good luck and I hope the extra vote helps. :) --GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 01:45, 16 June 2010 (BST)
  63. Yes - A bit of a toss-up, but I think the group and event are historical, even if they failed. --Zarneverfike 19:11, 16 June 2010 (BST)

No (Escape)

  1. Why? - I'm leaning towards a yes for the reasons DDR mentioned, but aside from being highly publicised I'm not really seeing any effects from the event. You know, aside from a whole lot of zombies in one place, which was funny as hell. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 06:39, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    I understand your point, but events this big are few and far between nowadays. In fact, that's an understatement, since as far as I know, this is the largest gathering of people I've heard of in two years, since March of The Dead and the apparent Battle of Barhapolis. In a game where numbers are declining and group actions en masse aren't as spectacular (particular in roleplaying value), I found this thrilling and exciting. -- 07:30, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    Your word: event. This group was less than impressive and failed to change anything about the way the game was played. The event they were at was much bigger than just their group, which is what makes the event historical, even though the group is not. Aichon 11:33, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    Personally I think the exact opposite. As an event it was shit, I just sat there and listened to spam and then got PK'd and died. The group is what was original. Now we are just butting heads about opinions though so let's agree to disagree since we've both made points for and against yeah? -- 11:36, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    I can agree to that. I think I viewed the event differently since I was on the outside looking in, rather than the inside looking out, as you were. For us zombies, this was the best eating we've had in awhile, and the most fun too, since almost all of the big groups showed up in force. Lots of joint strike operations and the like make for lots of fun. :) Aichon 11:41, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    No/Abstain - It's absolutely a historical group/event, but I'd like to see something on the page which details what happened. Now that the 1st and 2nd have come and gone, perhaps some of the people who participated can write up a little "post-event analysis". Then I'll happily vote yes.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 09:03, 3 June 2010 (BST) changing vote to yes.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 01:34, 16 June 2010 (BST)
  2. No - I feel that the event was HUGELY significant and should definitely be considered historical (see here), but the group itself failed to change the game at all and didn't do anything of significance aside from get together in one place and get themselves (along with everyone and everything else in a 10 block radius) killed by hungry zombies. Had they actually succeeded at their objectives, possibly even their secondary one of committing mass suicide by jumping, I might change my mind, but they didn't. Also, with 414 members still active in the group, that makes it far and away the largest in the game right now, so I think it's still too early to consider the group beyond the point of actively contributing (as the rules at the top of this page require). I know that's a bit of a technicality, but it's just one reason for my vote amongst several. Aichon 11:25, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    Typically groups made for a one-time purpose go into historical groups not events. Eg. BBB, and more likening to Escape itself, On strike. Just like Big Bash (which didn't really "change the game" besides be a horde but is still with my former examples in Historical Groups category), it's just the thing we do, I guess. -- 11:32, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    But if it's an event, then we avoid No Escape requesting the same thing. They'd both be pinned down under the same name.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 11:33, 3 June 2010 (BST)
    On Strike actually succeeded though, and as I said, had Escape succeeded, I may have changed my vote (likely would have). As for likening it to other events, why not the famous sieges and the like that are mentioned over here? This was essentially the biggest and shortest siege in recent history, after all. Yonnua also makes a good point about it covering all of the groups if it's an event. Aichon 11:36, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  3. No - Like my vote up there in the yes column says, it was very weak, and Aichon's changed my mind. As Aichon, and as I said before, but with much more frowny-face. >:( --Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 11:28, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  4. No - This seems more like an event to me, and didn't actually change anything within the game. I supported the effort, but I don't think it deserves enshrinement like this given its eventual lack of any impact. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 15:24, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  5. Hahahahahahahaha! Oh, wait. You're serious? Let me laugh harder. Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! - They didn't do shit other than get trolled to death. And they certainly didn't accomplish anything. And like Aichon said, the event might be historical, but the group isn't. The group is just a footnote on the event's historical page in my opinion. - Goribus 21:23, 3 June 2010 (BST)
  6. No - Event, yes. Group, no. --Papa Moloch 00:28, 4 June 2010 (BST)
  7. Event - I worry that No Escape will be left out otherwise, and they played a big role. Besides, I infected DDR, one of the most eventful attacks of my career. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 00:29, 4 June 2010 (BST)
  8. Fuck no - As a group, their only virtue was numbers. They did everything that a group could do wrong and that's including them not achieving their stated goals. The amount of fail in Escape as a group is immeasurable with currently manufactured equipment. As a historical event? I'd give it a second thought before voting "no" again. I'm not knocking it as something fun, just on every other possible level. --Papa Johnny 05:51, 4 June 2010 (BST)
    A whole mess of people died? That doesn't count? I mean yes, it was a failure, but it was pretty spectacular. Like watching a rocket blow up on the launchpad. -Captain Video 02:37, 9 June 2010 (BST)

  10. triple massive fuck no as above. since when do we reward massive fail? maybe as an event. this needs to be forgotten.----sexualharrisonStarofdavid2.png ¯\(Boobs.gif)/¯ 17:51, 4 June 2010 (BST)
  11. No - Escape as a group failed as already mentioned, all they had were numbers and an idea. A huge part of what made the event fun was the zombies and PKers who showed up, and they are given little mention on the Escape group page. You're glorifying the failing element of a much larger thing. Make an event page, tell of all who were there and all that happened. -- Papa Jadkor (RRF) (MotA) (MT11) 18:06, 4 June 2010 (BST)
  12. No - As Moloch! --Akbar 18:23, 4 June 2010 (BST)
  13. No - If you actually went by the original intent of the Escape page, you should have walked away from the game as of June 2nd. Since you are here requesting that the page be put up for a historical group, it's obvious that you didn't quit the game. As such, we shouldn't reward a tantrum with Historical status. I did make a template for the occasion. Enjoy. --Akule Maker of fine, hand-crafted UDWiki sass since 2006 -- Akule School's back in session™ 19:40, 4 June 2010 (BST)
    No, I concede failure with no clauses. I simply believe this deserves to be remembered. As Goethe put it, "Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it." -Captain Video 02:37, 9 June 2010 (BST)
    Which would make it a Historical Event and not a Historical Group. Even then, I will still vote against, as the members who participated as a protesting survivor were not actually going to quit the game, thus making the whole exercise a giant circle-jerk of futility. If you and the others had actually gone through with it and someone else put up the event, I would have considered voting for, as it actually did stir people to do things. --Akule Maker of fine, hand-crafted UDWiki sass since 2006 -- Akule School's back in session™ 22:26, 11 June 2010 (BST)

  15. No Massive incompetence and stupidity does not qualify a group for historical status. Even the event itself was ill conceived and not really all that significant. --Grogh 22:41, 4 June 2010 (BST)

  17. No As Aichon Moonie Talk | Testimonials 08:53, 5 June 2010 (BST)
  18. No - It's more of an event. The poor coordination showed by survivors lessened the feel of a "group". The arrival of Zombies and PKers from practically every big group in the game was what made it an event. Suggestion - Let's get a decent event page sorted.-- Adward  11:23, 5 June 2010 (BST)
  19. I'm pretty sure that it was stated on the Escape page that they weren't really a group. - User:Whitehouse 11:48, 5 June 2010 (BST)
  20. No Akule is right on the spot. I say no, it's a historical event. -- I'm just adding on here because I don't know where else to say this :3 Something you guys should think about was this was just a big fail bandwagon (Escape, I mean), everyone just went "baaa" and sheeped over to Ellicott Place Railway Station. It's no historic group --S e n e r g y T 17:42, 5 June 2010 (BST)
  21. No It was a pretty large event but as a group Escape failed to accomplish anything whatsoever, unless you count being delicious. --Globule13 02:33, 6 June 2010 (BST)
  22. No No Escape ruined the group and prevented them reaching the stated goal. If No Escape didn't be ignorant dicks, they probably would of reach their goal. therefore, yes. No Escape should be "honored" for being the group that ruined it for everyone.--Lonercs 06:05, 6 June 2010 (BST)
    Could you be any more bitter? The break in that resulted in your downfall was 13 zombies, at first. 380 survivors failed to dump them. Any "ruining" is down to the failure of the survivors concerned. Not all of them, but the vast majority of them. And ignorant dicks? We just happen to go where the food is. :) -- Adward  12:54, 6 June 2010 (BST)

  30. No I would love to say yes, but I'm afraid despite all the fun, energy and attention, it simply wasn't a group until the tinychat started. Even then only one in ten of the people supposedly 'in' Escape got involved. If more people gotten involved, and helped achieve of the aim of reclaiming Ellicott Place on June 1st, I would have said yes.

  36. No - Why should failure be met with reward? --Skoll 06:53, 9 June 2010 (BST)
    I'm going to throw in a quick counterargument here:
    1. Events and groups are treated the same in the system (see, On Strike, The Big Bash, etc.). I think everyone who argues Escape's elimination from the historical record on the grounds of semantics is therefore a bit off.
    2. I sort of get why people didn't like Escape (even though it would have tipped the game's balance in the favor of the zombies and allowed the living to 'win,' thus satisfying both sides) but does the fact that you disliked the group really disqualify i?
    3. Escape is still the largest group in Malton, meaning that member characters, while forgetful, were and still are active in Malton. Inactive characters idle out after five days. This was real. Botched, but real.
    4: Does the fact that the group failed truly eliminate its significance? I mean yes, a win would have been nice, but there's a difference between losing and not mattering. Escape was big enough that in drew a huge horde to a railway station and turned a green suburb red. I'd say that was entirely significant.
    5: "They didn't do shit other than get trolled to death" isn't really an argument. And don't think I'm saying that because I'm a whiny survivor. I'm actually dead and loving it right now. I just think anybody who wants to give me flack for being lame should put as much work into telling me so as I put into one of those radio broadcasts. It's only fair.
    -Captain Video 02:28, 9 June 2010 (BST)
    Gotta say I concur. 1. BBB failed too, so what? 2. It's a shame that people from no escape are so quick to vote no because they want some recognition. Escape thought of the idea. Escape was original, you just added no at the front and griefed them. Well done, but too bad, Escape was the catalyst. This is the biggest and most talked about event in 2 years, 2 fucking years guys, the fact that the zombie players vote against en masse just because it was on the other side, and the zeds won, is a joke. And voting against it because it "should" be event just because they want to be included yet there's no event page as much from them as from the organisers of Escape, and it should be entered as a group anyway. Sigh. Having said that, I'm only disappointed that it won't be historical when IMO it should. Shit happens I guess. -- 02:38, 9 June 2010 (BST)
    I think it's about time we nullify the policy that created Historical Groups. The whole purpose of this category was to preserve groups of worth while Crit 12 was around on A/SD, but now that Crit 12 has been nullified for some time, the only purpose the category serves is to create excess drama and waste everyone's time with these e-peen contests every few months. Historical Groups shouldn't even exist any longer. In fact... Aichon 02:55, 9 June 2010 (BST)
    I don't think we should eliminate them completely, but removing the entry criteria is not a bad idea since they don't really mean what they used to. -- 03:24, 9 June 2010 (BST)
    Sorry to burst your bubble DDR, but the zombies were what made it such a good time (albeit a failure, but still a Historical Event). Kevan was most likely not going to do anything to the "Escapees", and if damn near every big zombie group int he game hadn't turned up, it would have just been a huge circle jerk for a couple of weeks. As it happens, a fun time was had. Also: It's rather shitty to assume that zombie players are all voting no for some recognition, or because we were on the other side. We came to Owsleybank because brains were there. We are voting against it because the group itself was a failure. Unless your name is FedCom, failure isn't criteria.-- Adward  17:44, 9 June 2010 (BST)
    It still sounds like you're just voting against this because you're a zombie. "If the other side hadn't showed up" isn't a valid argument in Malton. The other side always shows up. There were plans, other than getting eaten, for what would happen if we weren't spirited away. They're right on the Escape page. -Captain Video 23:28, 9 June 2010 (BST)
    Dont' forget Ron Burgundy? -- 03:01, 10 June 2010 (BST)
    Hey, don't blame all of us No Escapers. I'm quite happy to vote Yes, since the event itself revolved around Escape. As long as Escape is remembered, we'll be too. And more importantly, the group really does deserve recognition for getting 500 delicious brains all in one place for us to eat. ^_^ --Shatari 19:02, 9 June 2010 (BST)

  37. No Others are right, it's the overall event that matters, not that group. What we need is an NPoV page about the event. And if only to motivate others to write and contribute to one when Escape fails to be regarded as historical group. -- Spiderzed 18:57, 10 June 2010 (BST)
  38. No Escape itself failed to complete its goal, and then failed to stay as dead bodies after June 1st. and don't say that's not a valid reason, that was the point of escape --4Zio'TJ! 19:04, 12 June 2010 (BST)
    You do realize that the 'staying dead' part was completely optional, right? Quite a few people chose to do so, but it was only one of several options for them. --Shatari 23:59, 13 June 2010 (BST)

    No I agree with others. The event was historical, but Escape as a group was just a mass of mostly feral survivors in a building waiting for something to happen. The collective Zombies and PKers of Malton made that something happen. We brought conflict, gave Escapees something to do during the wait. We even gave you the most logical ending of all. All Escape accomplished was having a mildly interesting idea and feeding a massive horde of zombies. Write up an unbiased event page detailing the events of Escape with all the major contributing groups (Zombies and PKers included) and I'll wholeheartedly support it as a historical event.
