Possible Application

I am willing to terminate zombies and potential human threats. -- SDN 15:42, 14 September 2010 (BST)
I'm grinning ear to ear. Are you willing to travel? Does the rest of your group have an interest in working with Skynet? I've added contact information for real-time discussion to the main page under description and at the end. Talk to you soon. Skynet Defense Network 16:49, 14 September 2010 (BST)
Yes. I will do whatever it takes to ensure the survival of the human race. I will contact various other Terminators and transfer the link to this page and the chat application. We will meet again. -- SDN 22:12, 14 September 2010 (BST)

I like the RP aspect of your group/project and the idea that it could help germinate surivor cooperation. I'm interested to see where it goes. Have you thought about possibly using The Emergency Broadcast System as part of SkyNet? I don't speak wholly for CORAM, but I'm sure our group would stand behind any idea that brings about the use of EBS for...actual Emergency Broadcasts. Hit us up on the CORAM talk page if interested. ~Vsig.png 18:16, 14 September 2010 (BST)

Application ==

I am interested in my group, the Anti-Zombie Squad, joining the SDN Alliance. About which areas of Malton will you be active? --Penguinpyro 08:48, 15 September 2010 (BST)

Our operations will be limited to areas within the quarantine zone ;) All of Malton. Our first operation will be to assist a current ally, the location is undisclosed for now. Where does the AZS operate? Skynet Defense Network 19:09, 15 September 2010 (BST)
The AZS operates mainly in the SE quadrant of Malton, although we will enter central Malton if there's an event. So... do we just wait until Sept. 21st and then sign up? --Penguinpyro 22:56, 15 September 2010 (BST)
Nope. You're an ally, effective immediately. The launch date is just to give us time to iron everything out. Like getting our allies listed here xD The Fortress is hosting a party soon. Think you guys will be up for a gathering at a yet-undisclosed location on the 20th?
We're committed to a suburb every month (location classified). If it happens to be nearby the current point, we'll gladly join in. If not, we will consider scrapping our plans and joining in soon after it starts. --Penguinpyro 10:45, 16 September 2010 (BST)

Like to help out South Blythville?

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)

Able Squad of the Cannonball Crew is currently dispatched to aid in the South Blythville Recovery Effort. How's it going down there? Leon Silverblood 02:53, 19 September 2010 (BST)

So Far, everything is awesome! Maybe add {{SBR|Skynet Defence Network}} to your main page...yeah? Red Eyes-Dezonus-Red Eyes (talk) 13:44, 22 September 2010 (BST)
Ok. What's that do? Leon Silverblood 18:43, 23 September 2010 (BST)
nvm. I wasn't awake yet. On it. Leon Silverblood 18:43, 23 September 2010 (BST)


This User or Group has run with the pack and is considered a Friend by the Wulves.

Looking forward to working with you.--Belisarius17 03:14, 17 September 2010 (BST)

Complaint acquired

Why, again, are sentient murder machines not killing survivors? Nothing to be done! 23:20, 30 September 2010 (BST)

Some of them are but my understanding is only those who challenge the ordered uniformity of the overmind. To a robot, the difference between an animated corpse and a living body is about 21 grams and some electrical activity. Besides, who is more likely to challenge a centrally run defense network designed to establish order: survivors who see it as a source of protection in a troubled time or zombies who see it as a threat to the currently favorable status quo? I would call it threat assessment. But I can only postulate; though my name appears on it, this is not my baby.
--Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  00:06, 1 October 2010 (BST)
If I was a robot, I'd go for the smarter foes first. Machines can outlast something destined to rot. Nothing to be done! 00:12, 1 October 2010 (BST)
So you say that zombies are stupid? --Penguinpyro 02:38, 1 October 2010 (BST)
Yes. Now piss off and learn your ABC's. -- LEMON #1 02:53, 1 October 2010 (BST)
Case in point. Genuinely, though, zombies are animals incapable of higher thought than "food is here", or "food is there, let's go there". Long-term guerilla campaigns against a robot army aren't exactly their forte. Plus, no matter how many robots they smash, they're not going to get eating those tasty brains (Robocop 2 not withstanding). Nothing to be done! 02:56, 1 October 2010 (BST)
I've been considering making a rogue Terminator alt dedicated to terminating survivors as its main mission. So you never know, only time will tell. -- SDN 15:29, 2 October 2010 (BST)
I did not plan to revisit this thread but this might be philosophically interesting. You mention things like challenge. Again, I think you misunderstand. A robot overmind would seek efficiency, pure and simple. This one is designed to protect as the other Skynet model was. The other saw domination as the best way to protect as it saw humanity’s greatest threat to be humanity itself. When Humans tried to destroy it, it encountered a paradox: Skynet=the best way to protect humanity, Humanity will destroy Skynet, No skynet=humanity destroys itself=mission failed. At this point a secondary objective was created mandating self preservation. Humans=no skynet: hence the contradiction. Skynet was built to handle contradiction so it rationalized. When humanity is removed from both sides of the equation, the secondary mandate was all that remained. It seems only logical that it resolved to destroy us to protect us when that rationale allowed it to remain behind after we were gone to protect whatever remained that did not constitute a threat. In this situation, some of these failings have been accounted for but the situation is vastly different. Anyone who believes that humans are their own greatest threat has not taken a look around Malton recently. In summary, Skynet may someday kill us all…but not until zombies no longer pose a greater threat. We are not likely to see this in our time. As it stands, this Skynet works with survivors, using them as resources to serve their own best interests. It coordinates as a means to help us govern ourselves. If we prove we can do this, there is no reason for the secondary objective to be created. In an ideal world, Skynet will dismantle itself when it is no longer needed. But again, this is purely speculation on my part as Skynet itself has so far declined to comment.

Undead Infiltration Units

Still looking for them? We might be right up your alley. Especially as we are also machines willing to help survivors - West German automotive engineering at its best. -- Spiderzed 16:27, 22 October 2010 (BST)

As much as it is a shame in that it is a cleaver concept and it would be interesting to have SpiderZed aboard in one form or another, I do not believe this is intended to be in earnest. This group seems to be a satiric creation highlighting the pointlessness of random ZKing and boasts ties to the Heathers by way of two of their front organizations: Team Icecream (who do not hand out FAKs as their XP values do not change) and Dr. Albert Schwan (the clone they made of me). Unless I miss my recollection, the account listed as leadership is a death cultist formerly with the FU (I may be mistaken in this regard). Final decision obviously rests with Skynet leadership but I advise against admission or cooperation without further investigation as this group appears to be linked to enemies of almost all Skynet affiliates.
--Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  04:32, 25 October 2010 (BST)
I advise hiring these guys. No one knows a zombie's anatomy better than a zombie. Nothing to be done! 00:07, 27 October 2010 (BST)
While we indeed focus on ZKing, it's not all the life-culting we do. All the tricks of the savvy life-cultist are up our sleeves, and then some more. We also ensure guaranteed entry points, save survivors from their inevitable fate in break-ins and increase safehouse security by making them look less palatable, among many other things to help harmanz. -- Spiderzed 00:24, 27 October 2010 (BST)
I am still not convinced that this is not a taunt made in jest. If you are in earnest, can provide us with assurances that information will not be leaked to the Heathers through Team Ice Cream( which would harm TX) or to the FU (which would harm FPDF), and are willing to change the details and links on your group page that currently misrepresent this group and its affiliates (namely me), I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. If you do these things, you may consider my objection withdrawn. You have always struck me as an ethical user and your survivor Alts I have come across have always demonstrated a clear separation from your zombie Alts. I am not fond of the Heathers connection but will believe you if you assure me you will keep it separate. I suggest you drop by the IRC and discuss things with the group leadership as they will be the ones to ultimately make the call.
--Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  23:59, 27 October 2010 (BST)

I have to agree with the good Doc on this, I don't like the connection to the Heathers Team Ice Cream or the link to the Parody page of Doctor Schwan. Also listing Clubbed to Death as a Ally really doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy either. These things we would need to talk about. --Josh Clark 16:01, 28 October 2010 (BST)

When was the last time you've been locked out by overcading death-cultists in Gulsonside? C2D has shut down that problem on its own, showing us all what life-culting can achieve at its pinnacle. They enjoy all the trust we could give them. (We are also in negotiations with Feral Undead and SFHNAS, who had similarly smashing successes in their efforts to help survivors in their too often frustrating search for reliable entry points.) -- Spiderzed 16:21, 28 October 2010 (BST)

I dare say...

...I do seem to find it a coincidence that Skynet tends to appears at wherever one of my alts is at for the past few months. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 16:08, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Curses! You've discovered our sekrit! I have, in fact, been basing all decisions about troop movements on your alt locations. But as long as we're on the subject...
where we going next? --Bad Attitude BarbieSDN 10:13, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks Skynet

To Skynet, Team Xtream and all others involved. Thanks for the opportunity to stand along side you and take on LUEshi's Rangers. It was fun and very well coordinated. The scouting and information gathering was second to none making my small role as easy as taking stale candy from a zombie. You know how to contact me, let's do this again sometime soon. --Raven Corvus 02:36, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, Raven! --Bad Attitude BarbieSDN 10:09, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

You might need a correction...

Not to burst your bubbles or anything, but the zombie virus has already spread to other parts of the UK and a part of the United States. ;) --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 01:30, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Alright, who wants to clean the article up a bit? Leon Silverblood 02:01, 1 May 2011 (BST)

Peng, thanks for all your hard work and ideas, and especially for the humor injection :D Leon Silverblood 23:33, 15 August 2011 (BST)

Holy crap, guys, blue text on black is an eyesore. --Penguinpyro 07:18, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

I didn't think it was possible, but your front page is even less readable than ever! Congratulations, I suppose.--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 12:37, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Skynet PKing?

Hi, Clary Zedrin has been indulging a bit of PKing, or at least assisting Flowers of Decay PKers (they apparently can't do their own dirty work, bless the poor little blossoms). What's the story - is this a new group policy or just a sentient murder machine gone rogue?--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 13:26, 18 July 2012 (BST)

Update: it appears Leon has also joined in, apparently aiding and abetting the Flowers of Decay (who are doing a terrible job by the way. Some of the worst PKers we've seen for a while - and we remember C.A.R.). :D Comments?--Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 17:50, 25 July 2012 (BST)
Will this suffice?

Credit where credit's due

While I am flattered, all credit for the classic Red Rum page design belongs to Sirens Discord. I merely maintained what she designed. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 14:06, 25 July 2012 (BST)

Well, thank you Sirens Discord!--Bad Attitude BarbieSDN 20:19, 26 July 2012 (BST)
