New Here? Read Me First

First of all, welcome to the BAR!

Second, and this is important, if you really want to contact the BAR and expect a response in a reasonable amount of time we recommend that you post on the BAR's group forum instead. Why? Because only Caleb Usher (aka Mobius187) hangs around here often enough to spot posts and he's not even with the BAR! So we strongly encourage you to drop by the forum. As we allow Guest access you don't even need to sign-up. How cool is that? Very.

However, several BAR members are now somewhat wiki active. If you try to contact us here, rest assured, we will notice, but we make no promises on how long that will actually take. If you want a speedy response, our forum is the way to go.

If you must post here be advised that all BAR patrons are asked to post their comments in the section best suited to their topic. Any topic that you have no idea where it should be placed should end up under "Generic Topics". The BAR holds the right to later move that topic anywhere it pleases, including deleting it, especially if it's old and no longer relevant. Important old topics may later be archived, but for now they don't. Always post the newest topics at the top of each section.

All of the really old posts are now be located in the archive. If you ever feel nostalgic then pop by there and read a few. Don't blame us if they're boring.

Generic Topics

There's only one rule here. Newest posts go at the top, older posts are found towards the bottom.

Hurrah!

Hey guys, I've got this human char who's roaming around rather pointlessly, I think I'll drop by some other time. Too bad you're almost all the way across town, but expect some Shawn Grey dude to be popping up eventually. ~m T! 02:11, 9 October 2010 (BST)

We look forward to it. I'll have a tall frosty one waiting for ya.--tyx94 19:54, 9 October 2010 (BST)
Be sure to drop in to the forum as well, Shawn. You can drink with us virtually (which, admittedly, is not as fun as drinking with us for real) at: http://burchellarms.proboards.com/ Jesus Sante CFT 03:02, 11 October 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) (DI:MD) (Like me to become a Sysop?)

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) (DI:MD) (Like me to become a Sysop?) 10:53, 16 September 2010 (BST)

Hello BAR

My preference is to maintain a non-target policy with your group. However, during this Hang 'Em High event I think we're going to drop that. Just fair warning. I will suggest to the others in BCH that only BAR members that are actually participating in Hang 'Em High be targeted. Some BCH members are more...volatile than others though and I cant guarantee what they will do all do, nor am I interested in trying to give orders to anyone. We don't have any bosses over here. We'll see where things go I suppose.--DeWolf 03:57, 9 June 2010 (BST)

I must say, that's awfully sporting of you to notify the BAR of this turn of events. I mean, I naturally assumed this would happen when certain members joined in the Hang 'Em High competition, but it's always good to know for certain. Now the BAR doesn't often check here, but I'll re-post this comment on their forum, in their Regulars (group members) section. Then those BAR members who would rather not get involved can take a short trip elsewhere during the competition's month to avoid any unwanted fallout. If you would prefer to contact the BAR directly though, for a more official response, please post to their forum (if you have not done so already). --Mobius 12:54, 9 June 2010 (BST)
Thanks for the heads up. It is only natural that you shoot back, but extending a courtesy to the rest of my group is some classy behavior. Just why is it that you don't get along with the DA?--Mrgomez 17:49, 9 June 2010 (BST)
I shall third the thanks for warning us ahead of time. I'd to agree with Gomez and say that I have no problem with you guys, this is nothing personal to me, so retaliation from you is understandable. However, keeping it only to participants would be a good idea, methinks.--Tyx94 21:58, 9 June 2010 (BST)

Request for Aid

We see that you are members of the Malton Uprising, and therefor opponents of tyranny and oppression. We wish to bring your attention to another case of tyranny and oppression. The Imperium, which also is a member of the Uprising, has launched three attacks now on the Gibsonton Squatters, without any bloodshed from the Squatters in return. These attacks have been aimed to silence our voices and drive us from the suburb they seek hegemony over. We are badly outnumbered and fighting to save ourselves from total destruction. This is exactly the kind of action the Malton Uprising was meant to oppose. We beg you, as free people, to oppose this action, either by cutting ties with the Imperium or by aiding us in our struggle for autonomy and liberty from their rule.--Fenian 03:41, 5 April 2010 (BST)

Please note that the Squatters have been harassing us for some time using intentionally inflammatory rhetoric and outright insults, and that they were the first to threaten war if we did not accede to their ridiculous and humiliating demands listed on the Imperium's talk page (toward the bottom of the "Murder" section).--Scott Timewell Imperium CFT 03:41, 5 April 2010 (BST)
Please note that their first murder was before our rhetoric became more confrontational, and that we have never harmed an Imperium member. We believe in free speech, and having been murdered more than once by this group for our exercise of our speech, our demands were nothing less than reasonable. Such thuggery cannot be condoned. --Fenian 05:01, 5 April 2010 (BST)
If this is still going on, you should contact us at our forum, listed above. I cannot speak for the group here. However, I will offer my opinion. War between survivors groups is stupid. STUPID. You waste time and resources over petty arguments. I've already looked into what happened. Both groups are in the wrong. Kiss, make up, and get over it. Again, if this is already done with, I suppose I just wasted 2 minutes. But both groups are free to contact the BAR on our forum. --Tyx94 01:53, 25 April 2010 (BST)

I have to agree. Besides, sometimes things can blow out of proportion during the ecstasy of the moment. As I have experienced, wars between two survivor groups are not only stupid like Tyx said, but they also go nowhere.Leo Leonardo III 23:34, 20 May 2010 (BST)

Opey Taylor spotted

Don't know how active you guys are, or if you check here often, but I thought you'd like to know the above fool was spotted (by yours truly) in Schreiber Drive PD in Rolt Heights within the last half hour. I know because he brained me with an axe a few times, and that after I'd healed the bastard. No good deed goes unpunished, I guess, but it caused me to check him out and discover him on your PK list, which I updated for you as well. Happy Hunting o/ JokimotoM.E.R.C.Y. EDU T 14:37, 04 February 2013 (UTC)

Mr. Yalls' Whining

I am not a PKer, but I think your policy is stupid. I don't care what your reasons are, when you kill a survivor you help the undead. He can kill people just as easily dead, and you've just wasted ammo and AP on him. Added to which, what if the kill that got him on your list was justified? And what if someone sees you kill him, and thinks you're the PKer? And why get so whiny and butthurt over being PKed when revivification is so easy - easier, in fact, that killing you was, making death essentially meaningless? --Cman yall 03:52, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Because that's how we play. We don't put up with being PKed. If someone PKs here, we will make sure the area is not safe for that PKer. It's about honor. We realize that there are pacifistic people out there (we have some in our group), but we play how we want to.--tyx94 19:46, 1 April 2011 (BST)
What's wrong with wanting order and justice in our suburb? Is your suggestion really to just look the other way? WWBD? What Would Batman Do? Jesus Sante CFT 04:29, 2 April 2011 (BST)

David Faust Only Impersonates Illuminati

Hello, BAR! I was just perusing the wiki when I stumbled upon your page and noted that David Faust is identified as Illuminati. Alas, Mr. Faust's is impersonating a member of this group and is not a member; he is (or was) in Angels of Mercy - a group whose members all appear to be dead now. I hope this clarifies things. Be well, BAR.--Ciscokitty 20:40, 9 August 2010 (BST)

Thank you for the clarification. I will update our list. Jesus Sante CFT 17:28, 16 August 2010 (BST)

You guys :wub:

Awww, you guys are so cute...war against The Streltsy. Seriously? Can we keep you guys, it's so adorable, you's guy's thinkin' you's can actually fight a war <33. -- Emot-argh.gif 15:43, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
War against you guys too if you don't mind your own affairs. They wanted a war so we're giving them a war. Leo Leonardo III 18:06, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
Do you live in a vacuum? The Colonel is Streltsy. Also, you can't declare war on us. We declared it first. --Moctezuma The Streltsy :) 01:07, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
In all seriousness can you really blame him for not knowing who The Colonel is, I mean I'm still trying to determine who The Streltsy are... are you guys by any chance associated with a real PKer group like Red Rum? Also what is the connection to the Mona Lisa? And how would living in a vacuum result in someone lacking information? Actually, you know what, I have better things to do than trying to figure this all out. --Mobius 12:35, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
Knowing is half the battle, and I am afraid...you just lost half the battle. Good day to you kind sir. (soft distant GI JOE music plays) -- Emot-argh.gif 15:54, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
And yet, as this chart clearly shows, the other 50% of the battle is comprised primarily of both red and blue lasers, which I can confirm the BAR has in spades. I highly doubt the same can be said about the Streltsy, who historically used the arquebus, a firearm that did not utilize lasers of any colour. Therefore the BAR has claimed 50% victory in this confrontation.
GIJoeChart.jpg
Yet another thrilling episode of Talk:Burchell Arms Regulars! --Mobius 18:13, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
So that puts us both at 50% victory. Or it would if it weren't for the fact that they've only killed us three times and we've killed them eight times. There must be some malfunctioning with their lasers. EDIT: As of a few minutes ago, we've killed them ten times. Also, I noticed another Streltsy is dead at the moment, so they appear to have killed us four times. --Moctezuma The Streltsy :) 00:14, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
In all honesty the BAR doesn't use their multi-coloured lasers. If G.I. Joe has taught us anything about lasers it's that they're highly ineffective against living targets. So I doubt they will make an appearance during this conflict. However, like nukes, having this arsenal secures a certain degree of victory (estimated at 50%) even if they're never utilized. Be sure to let me know if you feel deterred by this fact to any degree. --Mobius 12:11, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
No, a zombie ate me. Then I did the nasty and got revived at BAR's own RP ;) -- Emot-argh.gif 01:50, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
Interestingly enough I read about the revive, as I'm the forum admin over at the BAR. Now my question is, was the zombie a member of the BAR? I don't recall if the BAR allows ZKing or not, like the Dulston Alliance does. As for the revive, what can I say (that won't sound like an outright lie) but the BAR was feeling generous. --Mobius 12:11, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

YOU ARE NOT PREPARED

Hello BAR members, I would like to announce that your group is first on my list of people who stand in my way of eradicating the life out of this town, I'll be seeing you, but you won't see me...until it's too late. User:Pathetic Bill X January 8, 2010

Seriously? Leave us alone. --User:Justin91 Feb 22
"...I'll be seeing you, but you won't see me..."? The only concern I have is that Pathetic Bill X is hinting he's invisible, which would indicate he is the Invisible Man! The worrying part here is due to the fact that the invisible man himself was invisible, but his clothing wasn't. Hence the necessity for him to shed his clothes in order to become truly become invisible... which implies that Pathetic Bill X is in fact running around naked. And that, sir, is simply uncalled for! --Mobius 16:00, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
Dude you're right i've been back a few days now... and I haven't seen your sorry ass. I thought you were going to hit us where we live? Afraid cause the leader is back in town? --Leo Leonardo III 02:19, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Alliance Requests

Big Damn Heroes

We are located in a factory at 82,19 in lovely Rolt Heights, only 8 blocks to the west of your grand establishment. I am inquriing about the possibility of forming a mutual alliance between our groups as it seems a logical pair as we could provide mutual support in time of need. We recently declared Legends of Darkness members KOS as we needed some fun. Other than that we look to keep Rolt Heights free of Zombie hordes and keep peace in the area and help those in need out as we can in the surrounding neighborhoods. We await your reply. --marrion barry 20:53, 4 March 2010 (CST)

Hey, I'm not BAR, so I really can't help you, but they don't actually check this page very much. It would probably be best to discuss it with them on their group forum.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 07:39, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
I concur with Yonnua. The BAR does not come here as often as they did. Their group forum is the best place to contact them. --Mobius 13:25, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Great Suburb Group Massacre 2013

Jeez Whig, did you not read the bumph at the top? We're active I think in Rolt Heights and the other burbs nearby, mainly as we've lost our key and can't really remember the address. Someone tattooed 26.14 MHz onto Sante's forehead so we're hopeful this answers your questions.

Cheers!

Thanks! You've been kept as active in Rolt Heights and Pescodside, but you're not currently listed as using 26.14 MHz. Your listed frequency (26.97 MHz) has been delisted, but feel free to re-list it at your convenience. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 16:28, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Great Suburb Group Massacre 2013

I'm a volunteer helping to do some janitorial work on the suburb pages of the wiki. As part of that, we're double-checking in which suburbs each group is active. Currently, you're listed in one or more suburbs, in addition to using a radio frequency. If you would like to continue being listed, then please respond within the next month with the radio frequency you are using and a list of every suburb where you are currently active. If we don't hear back from you or we can't get the information we need, we'll be removing you from the lists, but you're welcome to re-add yourself later. If you have any questions, feel free to visit our informational page. Thanks.--RWSig1.png RWSig2.pngFoD PK Praise Rando!02:54, 22 October 2013 (BST)

Orphan Pages

ORPHAN.jpg Orphaned Page
The following page(s) were orphaned, meaning they weren't linked from any other page on UDWiki.
Please take a moment to review the page(s) and find an appropriate place on the wiki to link them. If you don't want the pages anymore just post them on the Deletions Page. Please note that the link(s) above do not remove the page from the orphanage.

Some of these may be intended for inclusion, but in looking, it doesn't appear that they are transcluded anywhere on the wiki. Transcluding them will save them from the orphanage. ~Vsig.png 04:57, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

I noticed that the Webcomic archive is linked on the webcomic page (at the bottom). I have used the Award Cluesless template (see Deadbeat list). I vote we ditch the BAR ATG and Old News pages. Jesus Sante CFT 03:06, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Yes I believe Mobius linked the Comic Archive soon after I posted this here. As for the award pages, if their only purpose is inclusions then they can be linked at Category:BAR under the Inclusion Pages section. ~Vsig.png 05:29, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Great Suburb Group Massacre 2011

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

--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:58, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Yep, we're here and active. Rolt Heights and Pescodside.--tyx94 23:52, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. Tell Kurt that Zombie Hunting Season has started.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 08:01, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
I'd love to, but Kurt doesn't really stop by the forums anymore. If I see him in-game though, I'll pass on the message.--tyx94 14:05, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Is your Radio frequency still in use?

Stop hand.png 2010 Group Radio Activity Query
In order to maintain the wiki as an up to date source of information groups are occasionally removed from the Radio pages when they are no longer active.

Is this group still actively using the frequency specified on the Radio page as theirs? If so simply confirm here by writing something below. If not, it's frequency will be removed from Radio pages in 14 days.

I'm sorry if this is an inconvenience or it seems relatively stupid when put into context of your group, but it is our interest to treat all groups on the same level when doing these purges. A reply within 2 weeks will be greatly appreciated. -- LEMON #1 12:32, 25 August 2010 (BST)

No response has been made in 2 weeks, and as such, your group will be removed from the list. If you come back at a later date and would like to reserve this frequency again, just place it back onto the available frequency of your choice. Thank you. -- LEMON #1 13:34, 8 September 2010 (BST)
I just reclaimed 26.97 MHz. We have got to start checking the talk page more! Jesus Sante CFT 04:08, 12 September 2010 (BST)
Lol! No probs. -- LEMON #1 06:04, 12 September 2010 (BST)

Recruitment

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. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 00:39, 25 July 2010 (BST)

Thanks for the update. I'm trying to update the signature every month anyway, but that's a very recent development. Obviously we've been very bad at this. Jesus Sante CFT 18:08, 25 July 2010 (BST)
Oh, I'm not singling any group out, I notified every group who has an ad there so that they didn't miss any changes happening. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 18:38, 25 July 2010 (BST)

Recruitment Ad

Your ad has been removed from the Recruitment page because of rules violation, specifically your image is too large. There is a guide here. Please re-add it if you are still active and recruiting.

I'm sorry, but your image is larger than 76,000px and is too large for the Recruitment page. Feel free to alter the ad and repost it! Thanks!--Lois talk 10MFH 19:18, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
