McZeds/Historical Group Voting

From The Urban Dead Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The old McZeds was a historical movement, didn't do much in game, but it was a pioneer in its variety of humor, culinary jokes- and groups were missing. Amazing and Atari Techno are now absentee from the wiki, so this old version of McZeds deserves to be put out to pasture, and the new one heralded in. --User:Nalikill 22:30, 13 September 2007 (BST)

Please note that New McZeds will be active, should you get the munchies for a Malty!


I tried to revive it, in New McZeds. But it sure was historical. It introduced to the game something new- humour.See below--The-Not-So-Late Stuartbman The ThirdMcZeds.png MBE OBE 23:38, 13 September 2007 (BST)
  1. Why is it closing now? --  AHLGTG 01:06, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  2. Becuase it's guarenteed to be 100% tasty and delicious.--Wooty 01:33, 14 September 2007 (BST)
    Until yesterday I didn't realise there was an old and a new McZeds... I loathe McZeds... but it made its impact, that's undeniable. --WanYao 03:13, 14 September 2007 (BST) [vote changed, see below]
  3. Good luck with the New McZeds franchise, the Abandoned will support you every step of the way! (granted that you don't turn into a PK'ing group, of course.)--Private Mark 04:41, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  4. Funny enough --~~~~ [Talk] 06:59, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  5. Totally. --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 08:01, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  6. Eh, i think their burgers tasted funny..but none the less they healed me when i was about to be a zomburger myself. FOR --Someguy5031 09:47, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  7. They get my seal of approval. --Mobius187 8:04 AM, September 14 2007 (EST)
  8. The Grove used to work very closely with the Judgewood branch, till some horde came in nd the family stopped playing... we had a good run though. --MarieThe Grove on Tour 15:41, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  9. mc zeds was good for propaganda as it pratically said that if you run out of food, eat what you kill:) --s gill 20:28, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  10. Although I was not crazy about having one on the same location as my group's revive point it was memorable and fun, & I'd rather not see it Crit 12ed down the line by some over zealous user. JD 00:01, 15 September 2007 (BST)
  11. Funny, unique for its time worth saving and besides I've heard disk space is cheap.--Kristi of the Dead 03:48, 15 September 2007 (BST)
  12. I raised a character from level one out of a McZed shop, and I have to say that they provided me with an interesting enough time to make me want to get involved a bit more with the game. --Goofy McCoy mfd HK-47 talk 05:57, 15 September 2007 (BST)
  13. It was fun, and spread in the whole Malton. --Abi79 AB 11:43, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    "Was" you say?? It's still ACTIVE, that's the big lie of all this. The "new" McZ's wiki is identical content to the old one, under new "management" is all. There is continuity there as well... The "group" -- which wasn't as a group so much as a wiki gimmick-- is NOT historical (as in, "of the past"), it is ACTIVE. Active. Active. Active. Active. **as he continues to bash everyone over the head with the word, like a mad Sesame Street character... failing to not that it's note actually doing damage, because it's a nerf word, and everyone is watching the season premiere of some crappy show like Lost, anyway** hmph.... --WanYao 16:27, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    McZed's in its original form is not active. You seem to be fairly new to the wiki, and were not there to understand McZed's original impact in the game. It brought a whole new level of in-character humor and fun to the game and wiki. The version that is ACTIVE today is just a guy who, instead of coming up with an original idea, decided to swipe a piece of UD history and call it his own to attain instant celebrity. Pathetic. McZed's WAS a real group, with real players. What is called McZed's today is not part of the original plan, nor has the "new" group been given the blessing of the creator (Amazing) or current owner, me. What's next? a swiping of RRF? --Zod Rhombus 18:07, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    If you knew anything about the history, you'd know I ran the original McZeds after Atari ran it into the ground and, well, ran. Arbitration decided in your boyfriend Amazing's favour, and as such I was only allowed to keep new McZeds running. That's not pathetic. That's giving a damn about a group. What is pathetic, however, is your lack of interest in the group at all. You did Jack Shit for the wiki page, and you were neither a manager nor elected. For fucks sake, let me get New McZeds running. It isn't harming you...yet. (wait until you see the new menu!). We don't need your blessings. We can get this shit off the ground.(BST)--The-Not-So-Late Stuartbman The ThirdMcZeds.png MBE OBE 19:08, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    Y'know, a more positive attitude in the beginning would have probably helped. If you approached Amazing in a more humble manner, I'm sure he would have gladly transferred ownership to you, or at least considered it. The above response is just drama-intensive and doesn't really show any regard for others, hence the tension. --Zod Rhombus 23:50, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    I would not like to enter in on the on-going drama that's started here because Abi made a simple post, but if I may, does anyone find it ironic that an in-game humor group could cause so much trouble? Regardless, all I can say is, ease up everyone. --Private Mark 03:35, 16 September 2007 (BST)
  14. As the current owner of the group, I am for going historical. I believe McZed's added a new dimension to in-character fun and humor and was the first of its type. I would like Historical Status to further disambiguate the ORIGINAL form from the current copycat group, which has no ties, nor blessings from the current owner (me) or creator for that matter.--Zod Rhombus 18:12, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    Who crapped in your corn flakes and made you leader of McZed's? Nalikill 19:25, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    Amazing did. The wiki needs less newfags and more people who know before talking. --Sonny Corleone RRF DORIS CRF pr0n 20:08, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    Fair enough. Link me to where Amazing made him leader, and I'll back off. Nalikill 20:12, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    Crossman Defense Force. Since McZeds was created by the CDF and Amagozod Rhombus is the current leader of CDF he is also leader of McZeds. That would make Stuartbman's edits to the page vandalism if Amagozod truly wanted to be a dick, but he isn't, unlike his predecessor. And everyone that isn't a newfag knows that Zod Rhombus is the sucessor to all of Amazing's work. We were there. We saw, we fought, we died just to get that son of a bitch banned. --Sonny Corleone RRF DORIS CRF pr0n 20:20, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    Here is the link where Amazing made me leader. It is true in this instance that I am looking out for the interest of the original creator, since I helped in its inception and he asked me to help him. Plus, I know more about the group than you think, I know Atari and Amazing IRL. I don't have an interest in a vandalism case and I don't want to participate in a drama-bomb, if you have further problems with me, take it to arbitration. I have tried valiantly to distance myself from Amazing's work and be a more positive contributor here. I would like to point out that this is the closest Sonny has come to taking my side, so I can live with that. Thanks Sonny, I think. :) --Zod Rhombus 23:44, 15 September 2007 (BST)
  15. Should forever be remembered in history.--Whatley2212 07:16, 16 September 2007 (BST)
  16. This group belongs to the creator and should be remembered in history Hatama 17:44, 17 September 2007 (BST)
  17. Amazing is...well Amazing! Give McZeds the historical status it deserves! --MadMoneyMike 18:34, 17 September 2007 (BST)
  18. MCZEDS FTW! --Dysplasia 19:45, 17 September 2007 (BST)
  19. I support the old McZeds page being locked, and left as-is.--Steel Reserve 0
  20. I LOVE MCZEDS! --Alreddyded
  21. Leave it and lock it. I haven't played UD in a while but I'd still eat there. ;) --Hiram A Doctor 23:01, 17 September 2007 (BST)
  22. I loved the old McZeds. They gave me my first job as a double zomburger with extra cheese. Actually they only used a chunk of my ass. But the rest of me enjoyed going through their dumpster late at night for the leftovers. The New McZeds uses cow meat as filler and only has zombie flavoring. Not the same at all. --Kalki
  23. Mczeds is legendary. It can never be duplicated by a mere mortal.--ABE THE REAPER 00:54, 18 September 2007 (BST)
  24. I'm not voting yes just because I think Amazing is forever getting the shaft on this wiki, but because casual idea theft such as this makes me puke in my mouth a little bit. Lock the original McZeds and make it a piece of UD history. Hail Amazing!! --Doc Garden 02:18, 18 September 2007 (BST)
  25. A: no idea theft. B: Mo (Amazings HR name) told me to, it seems like something HR-related, so I decided to role-play as my HR character and do what Mo told me to. :unworthy: --AlexanderRM 02:30, 18 September 2007 (BST) EDIT: sorry Mo, you shouldn't have mentioned that people who voted keep would be under suspicion of being your alts. Even though it's killing me to totally go against my CoM obligations, I'm not going to risk being banned. --AlexanderRM 02:38, 18 September 2007 (BST) Edit 2: Oaky, I've changed my mind out of pure laziness. It's easier to make this back into a vote than it is to make into a comment. --AlexanderRM 00:45, 19 September 2007 (BST)
  26. I am voteing for it. Why becuase I can..--Carrie Cutter 05:02, 18 September 2007 (BST)
  27. For. Though, I'd also like to see New McZed's closed down. -Wikey 05:36, 18 September 2007 (BST)
  28. For. I hate to see ideas stolen like this, McZed's should be a part of UD history. -Buskirk
  29. McZeds is like Highlander; there can be only one. For. Hoelle
  30. Just because I am fond with the old Zomburgers.--Oranchov 20:48, 18 September 2007 (BST)
  31. I'm for it, because I designed the logo, and the whole idea made me laugh. --WibbleBRAINS 22:08, 19 September 2007 (BST)
  32. For. As I understand this, a new group wants to use the history, reputation, and ingenuity of the original. Last I checked, that was plagiarism and intellectual theft. Stand on your own, New McZed's, not on the efforts of someone else. If you admire those efforts, you should get their approval first. Ellis Kinkaid
    Ah, I'm glad you support Studbartman as the legitimate leader of McZeds, the old one. As he did get the approval of the restaurant managers after both designated owners went AWOL. Thank you for agreeing (And show me the wiki rules against plagarism, or a trademark or copyright on the McZeds name.) Nalikill  TALK  E!  W!  M!  USAI  03:55, 20 September 2007 (BST)
    Hey, I haven't seen the leaders of Pwotters around lately, I think I'm gonna go become the leader of their group and since that would make them active I would then take over their wikipage since it would no longer be protected as a historical group. -Wikey 07:56, 20 September 2007 (BST)
    No...I held a vote, which was overturned by A/A, so I took my voters (with their permission) and founded New McZeds. I created most of the images, McZedsWorld, templated the menu, and that cool disclaimer thing at the bottom.--The-Not-So-Late Stuartbman The ThirdMcZeds.png MBE OBE 07:59, 20 September 2007 (BST)
    And... uh, how does that give you the right to take over McZed's? It's like if McDonald's totally shut down, then an old store owner or something tries to found a new McDonald's and is opposed by both the original founder and the legal owner, goes to court, loses, then goes and starts it up anyway. He wouldn't legally be able to name it "the new McDonald's" even, let alone actually claim that it was the same as the old one. And you've also vandalized old McZed's templates and the old page, and I WILL report that as soon as I'm bored enough. --AlexanderRM 23:22, 28 September 2007 (BST)
  33. Definitely FOR! Sffh 02:10, 21 September 2007 (BST)
  34. For -- Long live McZeds Asheets 23:21, 25 September 2007 (BST)
  35. For --Vercingetorix 20:33, 28 September 2007 (BST)
  36. Definitely For Eruan 23:59, 28 September 2007 (BST)

  1. Against - I want BOTH the new one and the old one removed. after readont he comments I got so confused i wanted to hit my monitor. The man 20:04, 21 September 2007 (BST)
  2. Against - Was never an actual group led by Amazing. It was made for the wiki and the wiki only. --Sonny Corleone RRF DORIS CRF pr0n 15:42, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  3. Going to have to agree. I did talk to McZeds, but let be honest, ANYONE could easily create meta-gamey nonsense like McZeds. Let not honor them, please. This is an Apoc, NOT a Farm.--ShadowScope 19:43, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  4. Against - For the reason given by Sonny. Also, the "new" McZed's is the same as the "old" McZed's, just with a fancier template and different "management." Therefore, it isn't actually an historical group -- it's still active! --WanYao 19:48, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  5. Against - Did absolutely nothing to warrant historical status. --The Grimch U! 20:39, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  6. Against - Never understood the point of it, and if it was supposed to be funny it then it failed to make me laugh. - Whitehouse 22:27, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  7. Against --Jorm 23:01, 14 September 2007 (BST)
  8. Against As Grim. --Karekmaps?! 23:50, 14 September 2007 (BST)

  15. Against-Specifically to piss of Zod.--The-Not-So-Late Stuartbman The ThirdMcZeds.png MBE OBE 19:13, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    I did this to try my best to give you, the new McZeds, a fresh chance. Please, if you would, change your vote to for. Nalikill 19:26, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    Not while Zod is flaming me, for the new McZeds, a fresh chance^^--The-Not-So-Late Stuartbman The ThirdMcZeds.png MBE OBE 22:20, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    How am I flaming you? Have I not acted in a responsive yet civil manner? I have not filed any Arb or V/B cases against you for swiping content, nor have I harassed you in any way. If I cannot get the old page protected as Historical Status, my only recourse is to take it to Arb or V/B, since there is a direct line of ownership. I only want the work we put into it protected. I have nothing against you as a wiki user or player. Of course,"specifically to piss off Zod" seems flamish. I have not acted in that way at all. --Zod Rhombus 06:13, 16 September 2007 (BST)
    Wow, you forgot your reply to For #13 quick.--The-Not-So-Late Stuartbman The ThirdMcZeds.png MBE OBE 11:36, 16 September 2007 (BST)
  16. Against --Lucero Talk U! 20:15, 15 September 2007 (BST)
  17. Against - Never made it to the stats page, had little impact in the game, and is still active under a new management. Yes, it is a fun page, but only that. --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 21:00, 15 September 2007 (BST)
  18. Agaisnt - Wiki-Groups aren't a game group. Suck it. --User:Axe27/Sig 21:02, 15 September 2007 (BST)
    Well, my understanding is that there were some members, there was some nominal "organisation" to it... It wasn't merely a couple of wiki templates... However, "nominal" is the operative word here... nominal and incidental... --WanYao 03:06, 16 September 2007 (BST)
  19. Against -Seems pretty obvious, was never an in-game force and this is hardly historical -Shaggy123 10:53, 16 September 2007 (BST)
  20. Against -I did this for Stuartbman, and if he changes his vote, I'll change mine. Nalikill 18:14, 16 September 2007 (BST)
  21. Against - Ahm nah ah hambargar! Srekto 05:15, 17 September 2007 (BST)
  22. because McZeds reminds me of Rally's. Nasty stuff.-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 20:25, 17 September 2007 (BST)
  23. Against - As above. --TeksuraTalk 06:51, 18 September 2007 (BST)
  24. Against --Kibbs 17:44, 18 September 2007 (BST)
  25. Against because they are still going on, will still raise a smile with newbies, and creators shouldn't be so jealous of their creations being perpetuated by others on a free online RPG - see our criticism of user:Lachryma, sorry, Ghetto Cow, going historical--Crabappleslegalteam 01:16, 19 September 2007 (BST)
  26. Against - If it still causes drama it is still active. --Max Grivas JG / M.F.T. 23:59, 19 September 2007 (BST)
  27. Against - Didn't make history and was more of a wiki page than an actual group. Also, being that it's mostly a wiki thing, can it ever really end? --Dorian Miller 21:07, 29 September 2007 (BST)
  28. Against - This "group" had no impact on the actual game.--Jiangyingzi 03:07, 1 October 2007 (BST)


Voting failed. With only 36 of 64 valid votes, McZeds didnt got 2/3 of the votes needed to get historical status. --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 12:20, 24 October 2007 (BST)
