Why does the military

Bother flying over this suburb, cause all it seems to be saying is "shits fallen, zombies there, the blackmore building is as always, gone. I just find it kinda funny, no? --Mikalos209 19:23, 10 July 2010 (BST)

Bombing runs? They never lynch children, babies—no matter what they do they are whitewashed in advance 19:28, 10 July 2010 (BST)
They obviously aren't very good at it then. Although the bastards who get Ridleybank duty for the day probably thing of it like a day off.--Mikalos209 05:14, 11 July 2010 (BST)

August 11th

Well, the DHPD[1] is bringing their two-week jaunt into Ridleybank to a close. It's been fun, guys. And, not to brag, but I think we've done pretty damn well, considering the opposition. Thanks for being there to provide targets for us. --Gabcd86 16:09, 11 August 2009 (BST)

Beating the DoHS is not considered an opposition. The RRF is out ruining the SSZ at the moment, when we get back we'll clean up whatever is left over. --User:Axe27/Sig 15:36, 12 August 2009 (BST)
Meh, if you leave your front-door open, we will burgle you. Cos we're cops :) --Gabcd86 10:18, 27 August 2009 (BST)

October 12th

The Lockettside Boys[2] would like to announce the resurgence of their long postponed karaoke tour, commencing with an outstanding kick off from Buttery Row School in Ridleybank. All musical styles welcome with tracks both old and new expected to be belted out with gusto. Drinks and nibbles available just as soon as the RRF break down the cades and open our arteries and crack our skulls. Till then, Viva LoBo's!

September 4th

Though small in number, survivors have begun to battle in Northeastern Ridleybank. We're disorganized and heavily outnumbered. If more members from groups such as the USAI show up though, a serious battle could be in the works. Many early gains are gone, but could be easily retaken with support. In short, the survivors need backup. USAI AWOL Officer Conrad

May 22

Jackson, you guys have been here less than a week. You only came down when you realized there was no danger, why dont you just stop trying to force everyone to buy an umbrella and go home. William Joel 02:06, 22 May 2008 (BST)

yes umbrella please dont try to take credit away from all the groups that have been in Ridleybank since the blackmore building was originally recaptured, you guys only came along when it was relatively safe to do so.

We were only here to get Ridleybank back from yellow to green, we are not taking credit for recaputering blackmore or something (actually, no group can take credit for that, the only reason Ridley is safe is because of the absence of the RFF). Its in Umbrella's intrest to keep Ridley as safe as possible, to prevent RRF zombies to enter Roachtown or Shearbank. (Now to wait for this to get moved to the discussion page)...--MisterGame 21:31, 22 May 2008 (BST)

Moved due to inane bickering. --Banana reads Scoundrell for all of Yesterday's News, Today! 22:25, 22 May 2008 (BST)

Actually game theres quite a few survivor groups responsible for capturing blackmore then making it green so i reckon if they wanted those 5 or so groups could take credit for it easily enough Wealthysoup 12:37, 23 May 2008 (BST)

Okay, but how much credit can one take for capturing a building/suburb that has only like 20 zombies around?--MisterGame 21:04, 23 May 2008 (BST)

re: late March Danger status conflict

i changed the status back to ghost town -- based on the man's report. thekooks, i didn't change the danger level myself because i didn't see enough of the suburb to be certain. but i saw a lot more than the 3 Iwitnesses i posted -- and everywhere i was, there were VERY few zombies. i suspected ghost town, but as i said, i didn't see enough for it to be conclusive. then the man went and did a proper scout, which apparently confirmed my suspicions. he seems to have changed danger level based on his scout -- not my sparse iwitness evidence. i only wish he'd posted some screenies to back it up, sigh. --WanYao 05:57, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

theman is a liar. It's why he's theman. --Sonny Corleone RRF DORIS MSD MOB pr0n 05:58, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
no he is not lying. i just scouted the entire suburb. and counted about 50 zombies. see the news. --WanYao 06:22, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

All you vandals and trolls quit fucking around. Ridley is not fucking Moderate or Safe.

As for the actual status, I presented the evidence for it being Ghost Town. No one else has presented ANYTHING to back up their claims. Not Sonny, not the man, no one. --WanYao 06:58, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Dude, the evidence you presented clearly show it should be very dangerous, "10 zombie horde".--Thekooks 18:44, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Technicaly... fair enough... but barely... Yeah, fine, there is one small horde of about a dozen around the Blackmore. But the rest of the suburb is almost abandoned. Of course I am not trying to argue that the zombies have lost Ridleybank or something... They'll be back... And I'm sure the zombies who are there are quite active. However, at the moment, it clearly very sparsely occupied. If it weren't for the Blackmore clump, it'd indisputably be a Ghost Town. --WanYao 18:58, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
Go make a human alt and try and stay the night, if you wake up alive you can have Ghost Town. The place has 50 zombies, that is quite alot, it has an 150 strong hord about seven blocks south, it is ridleybank, the place is a "very dangerous" place to be.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Thekooks (talkcontribs) at an unknown time.

Moved Non-News Junk

January 13 Rumor has it the RRF are making there way to Pitneybank to help their undead brothers. This might lead to possible recapture tries by survivors.--MisterGame 22:18, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Whee, garbage. Mistergame, get a clue. You are at the edge of a ban for all your misinformation. --The Grimch U! E! WAT! 22:42, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

November 6th, 2007

Blackmore remains in zambah claws with 45 zambahz hipping an' a hoppin' inside, the area around Blackmore is also partially ruined; the 5th of November vengeance soldiers have not succeeded. Zambah morale is, dare I say it Jim, extremely high. Now over to Cathy for the weather. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by LordOlam (talkcontribs) at an unknown time.
The recent poorly-organized and not really well-attended survivor attack on this suburb seems to have accomplished two things: first, the RRF have effectively "flinched" and brought a large portion of their main attack force back to their home suburb to defend a single building that honestly doesn't need much defending; and second, many have just gone and 'caded up the place in defiance. Does this count as a major victory for survivors? No. But can the opposition claim a major victory as well? Not really. While Blackmore has not fallen and probably will not fall, many more survivors survived a few more nights in Riddleybank than might normally be possible, even with a major horde in town. And at the very least, the boredom of a burb that no one really challenges has been temporarily broken. Back to you, Jim. --evilbob 19:43, 6 November 2007 (UTC)
Of course, The trenchies still attempt to take back buildings, but for all intents and purposes, those survivors will likely be dead near the end of week. So, No, the RRF didn't beat them back from the get-go, but in the long run, the RRF still holds the intiative, which means that either way, the RRF in the end still holds the victory. Not Major, but definetly a victory.--User:Axe27/Sig 15:03, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
I wouldn't say flinched, they've been waiting for the free meal for a while consider how much food came last year(which by the way was also a complete failure and a great feast for the DoHS, Blackmore was essentially something seperate that the FoN tries to take credit for). And just fyi, you would have been right about the never challanged part last year, but since the whole Blackmore thing people who can't let go and want to relive the "glory days" of the BoB have come almost twice a month to try and move on Ridleybank and Blackmore, so much that that has even gotten boring.--Karekmaps?! 15:10, 7 November 2007 (UTC) Then again, I guess it can be a success too, if you had the same goals as last year, which from what I can tell you didn't, cause the RRF did leave the Big Bash this time around to play with the FoN.--Karekmaps?! 15:12, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

What Happened?

Seems like some revisionist history is needed and fast. Remember Remember the fifth of now never, the failed treason and plot. Survivors came all day, died all the same, their ventures but for naught. I know not why, but that day they came and died, laughed at by those with the rot. Much better.--Karekmaps?! 17:21, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Stupid survivor stuff

As the 5th of November comes closer, reports spread of a new planned attack on Ridleybank to once again try and reclaim the land. These planners are asking all survivors to ready yourselves and come close to the area for the strike on that fateful day. Prof. Latirus 06:36, 24 October 2007 (BST)

Moved to talk. Suburb pages are for news regarding the suburb, not organisational rallying calls. --The Grimch U! E! WAT! 09:12, 24 October 2007 (BST)

Groups Vs. Organizations

Groups need members, Organizations don't have members. Groups with members go on the group section when they have a real presence in the suburb(even though many groups add themselves when only one member is present). Organizations don't go on the groups section at all, they don't have members. If it's not in a players Group Profile it shouldn't be listed on the Active Groups section, and since each group in the DEM organization acts of it's own accord without the backing of the rest of the DEM, and also considers itself an independent group, they are an independent group. If the DEM wants representation on that page they should do what most zombie groups have done for a while and change their group names to Department of Emergency Management and remove the listing of the subgroups. As it is though they need to pick a hole, and in this case they chose to be the Malton Fire Department, not the Department of Emergency Management. No other survivor organization(that I know of) in the game gets this kind of billing ingame, and no zombie organizations do(only one that ever did come close was !zanbah and they are largely disbanded). Anyway, the point is to be listed you need to be represented in the suburb and need to be a group, and either the DEM isn't a group or the MFD isn't a group in this case.--Karekmaps?! 19:50, 4 August 2007 (BST)

It's funny, I think this is the only time it has come up... Hmm... Anyway, the Dulston Alliance shows it's member groups on the suburb page, and the DEM is really like the Dulston Alliance. (If a bit more spread out...) There's the umbrella group, (The DEM) and the member groups. (MFD, MEMS, MPD, MFU, MCDU, AH)--Labine50 MHG|MEMS 09:09, 15 August 2007 (BST)
Dulston alliance isn't a group and shouldn't be on the group list either, might be good to note that since I joined the DoHS and have largely stopped caring about the quality of this wiki I am largely contained to the Ridleybank page suburb wise due to my duties. I don't agree with any group doing it, it isn't just a DEM thing. If they want the group to have representation they should have that name be their group name, if it's not on the stats page it really shouldn't be listed on the suburb pages.--Karekmaps?! 09:18, 15 August 2007 (BST)


If the RRF is in pretty much total control over the suburb, aren't they an empire now, instead of a resistance force?--TheGuitarHero 10:58, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

No, because we don't repress freedoms. We don't rule the area, we inhabit it. There's still a whole city out there filled with harmans barricading the place up. We merely seek to open the door and show everyone the true meaning of BARHAH. It's not an empire to have a place to call home.-- LordOlam 13:53, 24 May 2007 (BST)

then why does my group keep getting attacked by your group when we're in BARRVILLE? --Kylethoreau 01:36, 29 September 2007 (BST)

You're Harmanz, We're Zombies. Your in the homeland. If you don't like it, GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN.--User:Axe27/Sig 01:39, 29 September 2007 (BST)


I just want it noted that a lot of the people who defend the SSZ don't really feel that The Blackmore Building is strategically vital to the Zone. It's a good proving ground, and has historical value, but besides being great for XP and game experience it's not vital to us. It's pretty much good for the newbies and that's about it. But that's pretty much I think who's been fighting there, newer players learning tactics (like dump, 'cade, heal, kill). As of this time though, there are more important locations to defend within the SSZ, expecially with Mall Tour '07 about to come through. I know many in the Ridleybank Resistance Front feel the same way about Blackmore as well.--Benigno 18:51, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Phone Mast status report

If you have time, can we get you to update with the current status of your local phone mast? Thanks from MalTel and Asheets 20:23, 15 February 2007 (UTC)


who keeps changing the danger level back to red? it's not. All most every building is caded and maybe 10 buildings have power. and there are NO zombie hordes greater than 50. come on. what happened to NPOV.--SexualharrisonMalton Rangers 14:48, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

thats more like it!--SexualharrisonMalton Rangers/mossad 17:14, 19 January 2007 (UTC)


Note: I'm cutting EVERY SINGLE pov line in this. This is neither a survivor nor a zombie page. I will try to salvage your bad writing into npov if possible. I will continue to do so.--Jorm 19:26, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Originally posted on the Ridleybank suburb page.


The old zombie moderators have given up control of this page for us survivors to scribble all over. It seems a glorious anarchistic experiment, but maybe someone could condense the chaos... I'd prefer not to touch the moderation of the page, myself. I always want more pictures!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sir Fred of Etruria (talkcontribs) at an unknown time.

Zombie group?

Are the zombies here under a flag or just a horde?== TwoFaced

Most are (probably) RRF. The others are randoms that decided to answer the call (groan, whatever). There is no "flag" per-se, unless you count RRF's Department of Homeland Security. Other than that, its all just zombies throwing AP at strafed barricades. --Karlsbad 05:10, 12 September 2006 (BST)

Resource grid

Can we please get rid of that goddamn resource grid? It's ugly as hell plus it's redundant. Stanbury don't have it anymore so why should Northbury? --Bonefiver 06:28, 8 September 2006 (BST)

NPOV or not NPOV?

I understand the Ridleybank Liberation Army's attitude, but I think the following as it stands is inappropriate for a NPOV entry.

December 01, 2005 - The Ridleybank Resistance Front retreats from Caiger Mall, with new orders to drive out these "invaders".
The Ridleybank Liberation Army prepares its defenses and laughs at zombie presumptuousness.

I've moved this to below petrosjko's quoted order to return to Ridleybank, as it strikes me as a response to that. I don't want a stupid edit war to start here, I'll keep this on my watch page, so if you have any changes or issues, go ahead and put them here/in the article itself, and I'll see it.Nervie 10:25, 5 Dec 2005 (GMT)

It seems that the humans defenses were too weak, almost all safehouses have been destroyed already. With even more zombies heading home, it seems there is no hope for the humans. --AssaultLord 16:15, 12 Dec 2005 (GMT)

Perhaps. Central Ridleybank is certainly no longer a pleasant place for survivors to be, but the borders, especially the southern border with Stanbury Village are still giving resistance for the time being, although I wouldn't put money on it lasting. Nervie 18:08, 12 Dec 2005 (GMT)

(It's not vandalism, it's rewording for accuracy. "Defeat" has an air of finality to it -
I have changed my wording to make sure that it is clear that the RRF killed all inside.)

I have no problem with the wording as Daxx has put it, I could argue that defeat is acceptable, as the Gingerbreads were resoundly defeated in that particular raid. However, as I said on his user talk, I have no objection to leaving the text as he wrote it, rather than my own text, as I think it reads better. Nervie 14:13, 14 Dec 2005 (GMT)

I was really only rewording because as Nervie says it was technically a defeat, in that every member inside was killed, however it wasn't a defeat of the whole organisation, rather just the one safehouse. I didn't think the previous text made that entirely clear. I just wanted to make sure that events are portrayed accurately - I have made sure that the entry notes that all inside were killed, it's a bit more NPOV than "defeat", in my opinion. Sorry if I've ruffled any feathers. --Daxx 14:18, 14 Dec 2005 (GMT)

Maybe we should try and condense the "Important Events" a little? I changed it a few minutes ago but I realise it can get pretty cluttered if we're to update every time a survivor group enters and is beat back...we could put it as something like "Paradox enter the suburb, but retreat to restock a few days later". Just a thought--Electrocutioner 23:06, 24 February 2006 (GMT)

Hey, since you have 'Barrville, aka Barhahville' on the Barrville page, I suppose you wouldn't mind if we changed it to 'Ridleybank, aka Candyland' on this page? --Gilant 00:41, 31 March 2006 (BST)

Since the Gingerbread Men were slaughtered and were turned into zombies, they do not maintain even a small presence within Ridleybank. So this would not be accurate in the slightest. But you're just trolling anyway.--Jorm 01:02, 31 March 2006 (BST)
Not exactly (though I suppose I should have tossed a wink in there). While I would certainly agree that the two situations are not exactly equitable at the moment, I do have a character who has been operating in and around Ridleybank who hasn't died in weeks. And the latest reports on Barrville (and my own experiences with a different character before I moved them out to switch characters operating in this area), are that the RRF certainly does not control Barrville. Indeed, the Dead Presidents have been a greater threat lately than the RRF had been in over a month. My point is, I don't think you have any right to claim Barrville as your territory (on the front of the Barrville page - on the RRF group page is an entirely different story IMHO!), since it quite obviously is not under your control at this time. And I hope to see it never will be, but that that will be determined in the fulness of time. It is hotly contested territory, but territory my observations would indicate the survivors are more in control of than zombies in general, never mind the RRF. And you will note, rather than go ahead and edit the Ridleybank article to make my point and then fight over it, I brought it up on the discussion page. I am not in the habit of, try to be sure no representative of my groups, conduct themselves in that manner. If we put our name on something, it is either an uncontested point, or all significant parties involved have agreed to it. --Gilant 05:37, 31 March 2006 (BST)

I would like to add my recntly created group, Power For The People to the group page, but I don't wnat anybody to get worked up for no reason over it, So if anybody has a problem with that, let me know, or I add it in 24 hours.--Labine50 MHG|MalTel 04:39, 1 July 2006 (BST)

I don't have a problem with it, but the RRF might. The CC recently carried out a mission in Ridleybank and it resulted in a pretty heated debate as to whether I had the right to post certain things on the Ridleybank page. Turns out the RRF was previously criticized for adding their name to the "groups in this suburb" box in other suburbs when they were just there on a temporary mission. Supposedly the group box is only for groups that have a long-term presence in the suburb. Especially if your group isn't even planning on invading for another two weeks. Also, posts on the history section should be fact-based, not propaganda. --Koppie 07:37, 2 July 2006 (BST)

Great Suburb Group Massacre 2010

All suburb wiki pages are undergoing a clean up to remove inactive groups from the group listing (see here: this suburb's groups). If you are a group currently listed in this suburb, you will be contacted on your group's talk page within the next few days and asked to reply, indicating that you are active in this suburb. Groups that fail to reply within two weeks of being contacted will automatically be removed from the suburbs where they are listed.

We're posting here in the hopes that more groups will be aware of the clean up and can respond appropriately, since our team does not have the time nor the manpower to seek out every group in-game or track down its group members elsewhere on the wiki. If you know that some groups in your suburb do not check the wiki, please be a good neighbor and let them know that they NEED to check it for this, or else they will be unlisted in the near future.

The wiki members coordinating the cleanup will be using the table below to track their progress in communicating with the various groups. Please do not edit it if you are not involved with The Great Suburb Group Massacre 2010 team.

The Great Suburb Group Massacre 2010
