The Great Radio Group Massacre

Check-Mark-Reviewed.jpg Group Confirmed.
This frequency was confirmed active. Thank you for your reply.

I know this is a random request, but it's for all groups regardless of size.

-- Linkthewindow  Talk  22:57, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm going to tell you the same thing I told the last guys... Please contact us by forum in the future. It's a total fluke that I'm seeing this right now, I almost missed the notice about the cleanup on the main page. Yes, though, we are still here.--Labine50 MEMS | MHG 01:55, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Aww, I would have swung by the forums after a week or two. Or maybe I could have impersonated y'all instead, and saved you the trouble... ;) --Jen 03:19, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Lol. Anyway we can't use forums as it sets a double standard, and will thus mean that all groups will want to be contacted that way. Sorry :(. Linkthewindow  Talk  07:26, 18 December 2008 (UTC)


The Necrotech Assassins are a large presence in Crowbank. As you appear to be the areas central survivor authority, the NTA has opened communications with you to discuss the future of the suburb. It feels a shame that having just been retaken, it should be plunged in to a war that could compromise its delicate state. Therefore, I have for you an ultimatum. We feel that it is unfair that your group has been shunned from Malton after all it has done, and so we are willing to offer you an alliance. As the recent Malton Uprising declared war on you under the premise that you allow three alts per your organization, I would allow some of your members to enter the NTA, and continue their regular actions as members of the DEM. This would allow you to appear to have changed, yet also continue as you are. It would also mean that you would be lent support from our agents, who would also cease their current murders on members of your groups. As my men are covert, you shall not discover who is actually working for me. The only way to cease the attacks will be to form an alliance. I also wish for a full support accord to be agreed, that we can work together in any large-scale battles in the future. These are my terms. If you do not Respond and accept the alliance before new years day, 3 days from now, then I shall reveal the full extent of my force, and declare war on the DEM. The hidden NTA agents, and those who have yet to begin PKing, will all be given the DEM as a focus, and will be sent en masse to eliminate all life in the Crowbank area. This will remain as a constant until you surrender, and submit unconditionally. However, if you do choose to form an alleigance, we shall work on the conditions fairly. I wait for your response. --Necrotech Officer of Defense, Alexander Koponen 16:44, 28 December 2008 (BST)

The Great Suburb Group Massacre, 2009

Check-Mark-Reviewed.jpg Group Confirmed.
This group was confirmed active. Thank you for your reply.

Occasionally, general checks are done of group activity. This may seem like a stupid question, but it's for all groups, regardless of size. Linkthewindow  Talk  11:22, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, this is not actually a group, but an organizational construct of member groups and strategic partners, but: yes, we are active. - Stephen Krantz 17:50, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Good enough for me! Linkthewindow  Talk  22:46, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your help! - Stephen Krantz 11:32, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
I wonder what would have happened if you hadn't confirmed... Would it had mattered that we asked each DEM group and sub-group separately? I see redundancy in these queries, Linky! Mayhap we should stick to asking groups if they are active... less polytiks to consider.(The preceeding statement was made in jest) --YoHohoTalk 15:43, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Eh, sorry - was that a question? - Stephen Krantz 16:14, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
I was just wondering what would have been done if no one had confirmed that the DEM was active, just the groups within it.--YoHohoTalk 23:58, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, we can try next time, can't we? - Stephen Krantz 06:19, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
Sure! It can be a game. Heads or tails: Do DEM groups have to put all of their tags onto the suburb pages or just some? =P --YoHohoTalk 15:51, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
I'd say that's up to the groups to decide. - Stephen Krantz 16:05, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Rhetorical question, Krantz. *pats* --YoHohoTalk 16:11, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I see. You did know I'm not the brightest, right? - Stephen Krantz 16:13, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
I wouldn't say that... lets just call you focused on the literal. --YoHohoTalk 17:48, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Hm. I see. *eats doughnut*- Stephen Krantz 18:03, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Website for DEM? seems to be taken by an domain grabber. Where do i get my revive queues from now? -- -Alka Selzer- [ Talk - Map - Stuff 19:08, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

It is back online, for now at least. Lomd 23:45, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
WHOIS information show a "Last Updated On" 22-Mar-2009 22:49:05 UTC and Expiration Date in March 2010, so i guess it's okay now. -- -Alka Selzer- [ Talk - Map - Stuff 07:07, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Building Information Center

Hello, I am here representing the Building Information Center. As one of the largest and most omnipresent organisations in the game, you would be able to maintain the reports for many buildings across the city. In essence, that is why I am here- to request that you, and your member groups help to update the BIC.--~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 22:05, 21 July 2009 (BST)

Ephraim Lancer

I don't know if this is the place to put this, but a player called Ephraim Lancer has been repetitively destroying the generator in Tompson Mall. His group listing suggests he is part of your group. Is this so, and if so, why are you allowing him to destroy the Generator? Sorakairi 22:59, 26 July 2009 (BST)

It EPIN UD. --Skouth 23:38, 6 August 2009 (BST)
Anyone with a DEM group tag isn't likely affiliated with this alliance - they go by their individual group tags: Malton Fire Department, Malton Police Department, whatever. Mr. Lancer seems to be masquerading or perhaps has started his own DEM, one with hookers, and blackjack. -- M arcusF ilby T 20:54, 7 August 2009 (BST)
That DEM sounds like it would be a muc more popular force. I know I'd join it. --Doctor Dark 05:15, 8 August 2009 (BST)
He has killed me twice also --DaReaperZ

Recruitment Image

Hi there. This is to let you know the image on your recruitment advert is currently above the allowed limit of 56KiB. You might consider uploading a more compressed version for the purposes of the template. Please rectify the issue or your advert may be removed. Thanks. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 15:01, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for the notice. The image is now at 32KB, which should be small enough. G F J 10:51, 7 March 2010 (UTC)


Concerning your group advert on the Category:Recruitment page, you may be interested to know that a vote is currently underway concerning the duration of time adverts can be reserved by a given timestamp. Your input is welcomed, and it should be known that if this vote passes you will need to update your adverts on a at least a monthly basis, not a two-monthly basis. Thanks. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 00:43, 25 July 2010 (BST)

Thanks for the notice. I agree that the proposed change is an improvement. G F J 11:09, 25 July 2010 (BST)

Like to help out South Blythville?

SBR logo.png
Fixing what the Big Bash Broke.

The South Blythville Recovery Effort is a collaboration of individual survivors and groups working together to recover South Blythville to what it was before the Big Bash 3 come in and broke everything.

If you and/or your group are in the South Blythville area and would like to help, Please view this page, and/or contact Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk)

Please forward this on, even if you don't wish to partake as we can use all the help we can get. {{SBRadd}} places this on your post ;)

Hey there, I've sent you this because you're a survivor group. Please help us if you can, we'd really appreciate it. If you can't help physically, you can always help by spreading the word ;) Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk) 10:53, 16 September 2010 (BST)

Hello Dezonus, thanks for your initiative. We will try to get some members into the South Blythville area, although at this point I unfortunately cannot make any guarantees or present concrete data. Regards, G F J 11:54, 16 September 2010 (BST)
Thanks for your quick reply. I am doing my best, but being called a spammer by some =/ It's not easy when the Zeds are co-ordinated and survivors are not...Anyway enough of my whingeing, If you guys would like to put together a dispatch of your group, that would be great =D I wont add you to the list just yet, but let me know if you officially would like to help out Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk) 09:46, 17 September 2010 (BST)

GSGM 10 No.2

Check-Mark-Reviewed.jpg Section Confirmed True.
The Section was confirmed to still be true. Thank you for your reply.

South Blythville - Section reads as follows:
"Officers of the Malton Fire Department, Malton Police Department, and Malton Forensics Unit assigned to DEM district SW-1 (North Blythville, Wykewood, South Blythville, Greentown and Lockettside) patrol this suburb frequently and assist with resolving emergencies."
Is this still true? Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk) 06:48, 19 September 2010 (BST)

Partly ;-) It's still correct that there are DEM members patrolling the suburb from time to time, but we do not have a permanent presence and "frequently" would be an exaggeration. I can't provide you with a clear number of how often that patrolling takes place, however, simple because it strongly depends on the situation in other areas of Malton, the number of available members, and other factors of which some are hard to foresee. G F J 10:40, 19 September 2010 (BST)
I also came across the same thing written in Wykewood, would what you said also apply for Wykewood? Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk) 14:35, 19 September 2010 (BST)
Yes, it should apply to Wykewood as well. What I would suggest is not completely removing the paragraph, but altering it a bit. Regards, G F J 16:34, 19 September 2010 (BST)
If you can write up something to replace it with, I'll replace both for you if you like? I can't exactly alter it myself as I don't really know your group too well... Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk) 13:43, 20 September 2010 (BST)
Thanks for the offer. I've edited the two suburbs now, updating the paragraph. I hope this has improved it. G F J 13:44, 23 September 2010 (BST)
Thanks for the effort :) Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk) 03:16, 3 October 2010 (BST)

District Map for the NE

Hi there. Regarding this image which is a map of the NE District. According to the image description it is used by the DEM, MFD, and MPD. The image is used on a handful of pages (11 to be precise), such as Nurton Walk Fire Station. I'm just wondering if your group still uses this map or if it serves any purpose to you. If so, you'll notice that district 3 and district 5 look almost identical in color. I could easily fix that for you with a photo editing program and upload a better version of the map that has more distinct districts, however if this is no longer in use then it's probably not worth the effort and it would be easier to remove the images all together, since they aren't pretty to look at. You can respond either here or on my talk page, no hurry, I'll wait to hear back from you :) --GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 21:21, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Hello, no, we do not currently need that image and are not using it on any of our pages. Thanks for your offer to improve it, but as far as the DEM is concerned, I don't think it'd be worth it. Regards, G F J 16:59, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Still Alive?

I haven't seen any from your group since the RG moved away -- where have you all gone? :( --Ash  |  T  |  яя  | 14:43, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello Ashley, yes, we're still alive :-) If you haven't encountered us, it's probably coincidence or the PKer community has gotten worse at tracking us ;-) In any case, the RG has nothing to do with it. By the way, even if you didn't see us, we recently saw you - four days ago at the Yagoton / East Boundwood border. Regards, G F J 13:53, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

How's the DEM dealing with the whole cataclysmic zombie uprising and whatnot? I haven't seen much of any group right now, particularly not the DEM --Thorgold 07:48, 14 May 2011 (BST)

Well, in what area are you in-game? The DEM is not operating city-wide at the moment, we are focusing on specific areas. In these areas, though, we really are visible. By the way, as it looks like you're a former member: In case you're interested in getting back in the loop with DEM operations and to work with us again, let me suggest to consider rejoining.

Anyone know what's going on with BrainstocK? I tried to check in earlier and it said there was an unknown error. --Jerran1 NecroConnect Creator/Admin 15:42, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Anyone living here? 2018

If anyone is alive or even here still please can you state your numbers? I am part of the Roftwood Coordination Center -Tess Eks (talk) 22:30, 11 February 2018 (UTC) - DEM is still around, we've got a mobile team just finished operating in East Becktown with the East Becktown Defenders. Not as many of us as there used to be, but still a half dozen active plus about the same that fade in and out as the exigencies of life dictate. All Hail CLWG, MFU Chief
