Gameplay

Clear, straightforward, and stylish. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 06:48, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Yes
  1. Yes - --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 06:48, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
  2. Either I'm capped or someone in the house is downloading a shiton of porn. The point is, this page took ages to load and when I was anticipating what a page with the name "gameplay" I immediately thought the ideal page would have the simple basics of the game spread out in the simplest but most effective and explanitive form, and also link to many other potentially helpful pages that could tell me where to look if I needed help. You know, everything that the DiL wiki didn't do. So yeah, Took a few minutes to read, looks nice, and explains the three most important parts of the game(play): How to play (AP), why you're playing (XP), and how to go about the mixture of the two (how to play for xp: items). I dig, so I'd definitely vouch. -- LEMON #1 14:35, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
  3. Great, helpful article, linked to a bundle of places. Imo, should be linked to a bundle more.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 14:51, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

No
  1. No - It's a nice page to have around on the wiki in case anyone ever searches for the phrase "gameplay" but I just can't get excited about it at all. Also, it loaded fine for me, you might want to close all those porn tabs buddy.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 18:16, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Blackmore 4(04)

I'd like to think it's a good read, and a nice example of more recent in-game history.

Yes
  1. ~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 20:38, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
  2. Conditional yes - I think the "Frontline" section may need to be either streamlined or made a subpage. If made a subpage, just condense down the section on the main page so it holds links to the relevant sections and acts as a contents section for it. I also dislike the IRC layout of it, but that's just me. All things considered, moar new stuff is good. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 20:41, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
  3. A great example of a well-written event page that should be showcased in the Good Article series. Still don't think it's historical though ;-p .-MHSstaff 23:26, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Guides:The Zombie Lexicon

Yeah, I know it's a guide, but we've had those featured before so don't be holding that against it. It's got some seriously good in-depth work in there, and along with its sister project has pretty much helped to defined an entirely new creole language. The informative nature of the article, its fun little quirks, and some of the wonderfully useful tidbits in there all say to me that it deserves the status.

Yes
  1. See above. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 22:46, 12 November 2010 (UTC)
  2. Yes - Its received more effort than the vast majority of pages, and the result is that its among the best. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 06:53, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
  3. Yes - as far as I'm concerned, it's one of the most useful pages on the UDwiki. ~~ Chief Seagull ~~ talk 10:55, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes
  1. Yes - I think it's a well made article.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:24, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
    So do I,... I'll change my vote to yes sometime before his seven days are up. Just curious to have an answer to the questions presented. -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 21:38, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
  2. Yes - I think every article is a good one. --Moctezuma The Streltsy :) 22:08, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
  3. Yes - Very thorough. --TripleU 23:52, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
  4. Weak Yes - It really meets all criteria and pretty interesting. But the accuracy of the article is under the question. it'd be cool to gather statistics on a distance somehow, but it's kind of abuse to the system. --fe328 23:59, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
  5. Yes - Maybe not an article that I will read often, but then again that has no bearing on its quality. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 09:49, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

No

Against I think that the article needs to address the issue of 'what happens if the building requirments aren't met?' For example: under the Lab Assistant section,... what happens if there are no NT buildings that fit the crieria? Granted, this may never be the case,... in fact, I doubt that this would ever be the case,... but what if? Is there a really good answer for this? BTW, my vote can easily be swayed to a yes vote,... it's just that this is something I notice, and was hoping it could be addressed in some way... -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 20:14, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Hmm. Probably something I can't do with spadework, unless I spend a day creating Necrotech assistant Alts and then throwing barricades at the relevant NT's. Probably a question for Kevan. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 20:16, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Maybe not now anymore, but that could have been the case during the March of the Dead. No Necrotechs meeting requirements I mean.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 20:26, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
I see, so this issue would have to be addressed through a case study,... Perhaps such a thing should be noted in the article somewhere? Personally, I've got a similar, also interesting take on this subject. Considering the priority of NT buildings within the game, and the community as a whole, and inversly, being the big target they are for zombie groups,... how often do you think conditions like this exist? And is it VSB or lower? At that, when it comes to spawning, is this really a luck of the draw sort of thing, or is it something thats vastly affected by the actions of the people playing the game? I think that that's worth noting in the article to, simply because that last point I made is the whole allure of the game to a great many people... everything is situational, and all outcomes are affected solely by the individuals playing... and thus, so are the spawning locations in a way. -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 21:04, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Our Lord and Saviour has answered on his talk page. I'll add to the page, today. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 09:00, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
Vote struck, and changed to yes. -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 13:28, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Questionable accuracy and the minor need to test what happens if there are no valid spawnpoints.--ShadowScope'the true enemy' 03:39, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

No valid spawnpoints query answered. Now explain how I can improve on the so called questionable accuracy? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:15, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
I was just rather dubious that there would be a complex method of spawning when you could have someone just spawn anywhere but...well...eh. Kevan replied and didn't try to knock you down so I'll change my vote.--ShadowScope'the true enemy' 23:41, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
  1. Poodle and SS's reasons are so utterly stupid; if they think the reason for a glossary/player-resource article like this is to just prove what would happen in extreme hypothetical situations, then they are wrong. Having said that, this article is useful to show interested users the nature of spawning; and that is all. GA's in general should have the ability to interest any user into reading at leased a bit of it, but I don't think this has it. Narrow/special interest works don't generally fit my idea of a GA. -- 05:26, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
    I just felt the article needed to be 'complete'. It's 'complete', so that's why the Keep. I don't see a GA needing to personally interest anyone, as long as it's a Good Article (NPOV, Compelte, Well Written, "Awesome"), it suffices.--ShadowScope'the true enemy' 23:40, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
    By personally interest people, I mean it needs something in it that does inherently make it "awesome". This is boring. It covers a concept that is experienced within the first two clicks of making an UD account for everyone, I think this sort of coverage isn't unnecessary, but not groundbreaking enough to be a GA at all. -- 23:52, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
    I think its range is more than that. It adds another reason for cading TRP's to only VSB and shows another benefit of emitting a feeding groan (which needs a major rewrite). I also think that its important to note that some suburbs underpopulation might be due to their lack of Firestations and Necrotechs. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 09:44, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
    Also why there might be a lower zed presence within the same suburbs,.... -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 13:23, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

A Beginners Guide to Urban Dead

This article has been accessed over 80,000 times,.... has been cited by many other users as still being an important peice of information (as can be seen here, here, here, and here), as well as having been cited for information (like here for example). That said, many users, and pages not listed above, link to it, having thought it was important to keep. Also, when it was reveiwed here, it seemed to have some support as long as it was updated. These are the reasons why I think the article should be a Featured Article. -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 04:24, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

    I don't know what you just said other than yes.... -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 04:40, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
  6. Yes - although it could do with being split up into subpages. Linkthewindow  Talk  08:05, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
  7. Yes Its not really a guide, just a lot of important glossary pages all stuck together in one place. Still an excellent resource mind. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 09:38, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
  8. Yes - Helped some of my friends get into the game, wored for them will work for anybody. --Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 00:10, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

  1. POV much? Lacking basic information and vague when it comes to its own declarations. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 12:07, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
    Vague in it's declarations, and non neutral POV.... hmmm....? -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 13:21, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
  2. No - I don't really like the layout of it. Perhaps some tables for some of the information, or just links to separate pages with the information (for example Building types). I'm not really a big fan of a huge amount of information on the one page. Don't see why the information on building types needs to be repeated on this page as well, especially useless information like interior and exterior descriptions. It just builds up the page more. μnholy®eign Dual nature player 06:25, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
    Really,.... you'd rather have it look like this? -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 13:21, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
    No I wouldn't like it like that. You know what I meant Don't be a smart-arse. But just in case I didn't make it clear the first time... The beginners guide should give relevant information that beginners need. Just the basics, some details where needed. But NOT a complete guide on the entire game. The details are included on other pages, and people can access them by searching if need be. Rather then clotting up a beginners guide with useless information. On top of that, some basic information that beginners would need isn't included as well. Thats why I don't like it. μnholy®eign Dual nature player 11:40, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
    I do know what you mean,... however,.... I know being new to a game, I like to waltz in with everything on the table, and a good working knowledge of what I should be doing, or what the working aspects of a game are. Not just having my character spawn someplace... and not know what I should be looking at, or how to get into a building.... or why I should even give a rats ass about libraries,... which you seem to think are absolutly frivolous, amongst other things I've included. Obviously this isn't the case, both from an RP perspective, as well as a strategic perspective, both of which are touched on within the article. -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 22:28, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

In the Consumer section it says "This makes re-stocking much faster than in police departments or hospitals", but in the First Aid Kit section it says "it is proven that Hospitals are now the best place to search for FAK's. Even an unlit hospital has yielded FAK's with a greater rate than a lit mall"... so which of these is correct? Chief Seagull talk 12:47, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
    Considering the search rate for FAKs in Malls was nerfed a year or two ago, there's no doubt that Hospitals are the best place to find FAKs now. Aichon 16:56, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Survivor-Zombie Imbalance

This is intended to be a reasonably NPOV account of the survivor/zombie ratio since the game's inception. It was a reasonable article at the start of the year but hadn't been updated in a while and since then I've reworked most of it. I've filled in the history from what I've researched on the wiki.

I think you'll find that the precedents of the system (which I didn't make BTW, simply upkept) is a strong pro-qualitative feedback method. Think of it as A/PM except any legitimate criticisms brought by anyone is enough to reject a potential GA. If you don't think the criticism here counts as legitimate, it's because it was obviously considered so not GA potential they didn't bother explaining. -- LEMON #1 10:25, 20 September 2010 (BST)

As much as I hate this article, it did get the support of the community, I see no reason to deny it the position. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 15:47, 20 September 2010 (BST)
Because the page is essentially a pun, and making this a community vote lends itself to meatpuppetry in a place where meatpuppetry is commonly found.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 15:53, 20 September 2010 (BST)

"The nomination will be discussed and if there are no major issues raised..." (top of page) - Discussion not a vote, unless those in favour can refute any "issues raised" i.e. that the page article is actually good, and your "votes" weren't just for the punny title, then you get your GA. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 17:05, 20 September 2010 (BST)

So without any actual codified "arbiter", anyone can throw out a GA if they feel they have "good reason" to? This may in fact be the most poorly thought out process on the wiki. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 17:13, 20 September 2010 (BST)
The idea being you can discuss a problem and fix it and then GA it without objection, as opposed to letting a bad page through from lack of voters/vote rigging/whatever. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 17:23, 20 September 2010 (BST)
Why is there voting anyway? And that's a serious question. Why aren't we just discussing, coming to a consensus, editing it to fix minor issues issues, and then moving forward? On ones like this, where you'll definitely get folks split on the issue, I'd say it should default to not being GA, since there are clearly issues that cannot be overcome. Granted, it's a more involved process, but it'd actually make sense, as opposed to being a vote that has no place or meaning aside from expressing a summarization of that person's opinion on the subject.

  2. No - The main problem with this article is that it is hard to tell if it is a guide/strategy or a subtle parody of a guide / strategy. If it was purely a guide with better formatting and information, it would be pure awesomeness. If it was entirely a parody, it would be liquid sex. Unfortunately, it tries to be both and fails at becoming either. - MHSstaff 20:17, 6 September 2010 (BST)

Actually DDR has taken control of this. And it has now passed.

Yes
  1. Yes - I'm offended that you think being fanmade is a bad thing. This thing is a vital piece of our history. Without it, we'd have no way of knowing how this all started. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 02:54, 24 July 2010 (BST)
No
  1. This is a no with a but - it's a good page, but it just look amateurish. I might give it an overhaul soon to have things like paragraphs, headers, more interwiki links, etc, though I don't know how that would affect this vote. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 02:56, 24 July 2010 (BST)
  2. Very similar to Possible Causes for the Situation, they are the two pages on the wiki that should be considered the best in the entire place, but just fall a bit short. Both of these pages added to my fascination with the rich history of Malton when I started many years ago but they need some basic formatting before being accepted IMO. It's not cause I don't think they shouldn't be GA's at this point, it's that with a simple 20 minutes of work, they won't only qualify but will also be miles ahead of what they are now. -- 03:07, 24 July 2010 (BST)

Your page consists of a collection of silly images and templates together with, here it comes, 3 whopping sentences you wrote. It's a pretty basic, nice-looking userpage but as an article?

    And, TA-DAH!, has everyone just seen how right I was? I say this system is open to meatpuppetry as soon as it's seen to be easily abused and we get our first instance. This article is losing by six votes and we get four votes all of a sudden within 24 minutes, my, what a coincidence(!) I wonder if a certain group, let's say for the sake of argument, MOB, is spoken of highly in this article? I wonder if these four users have something in common, perhaps shared membership in the same hypothetical group? That seems likely, I wonder if there was a shout out on IRC.... Of course systems like suggestions and historical have things like similarity conditions and minimum participation requirements, this doesn't and MOB gives us our nice first concrete example and more importantly proves me right. Although I did expect more class from MOB. Still, I feel a chorus of the 'I Told You So' song coming on. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem!

    The one where I implicitly state that I withdrew it because I was tired of idiots like you assuming foul play when there is none? If I wanted to meatpuppet something for personal gain I'd have used a group page or something more personal, not a community effort I merely did grunt work for.

    Actually it's the fact that you called ulterior motives from the get-go, rather than actually asking why I chose the article I did. Of course I had to have put it up for selfish reasons.

    My, how right you are. After all, my experience has taught me that asking people with ulterior motives means they just tell you their schemes, that's how it works! How could I have forgotten such a self-evident truth of reality that people never lie. I quote the Prophet Gregory "Everybody lies". For the sake of argument, how many times have you ever asked someone you felt wasn't being entirely truthful and open about it and they've just come clean about it? You can give me as many examples as you like, I'll direct you to the world of politics and win the argument with contemptuous ease.
    You thought the article was good? How quaint, how unselfish of you.... to nominate your own article.... truly you shall go to paradise when you pass on to sit with the Enlightened Sting and Saint Bono. What next? Will you nominate your next Youtube video for an Oscar? Couldn't wait for someone else to nominate it now could you? And behold, you've started posting responses to my votes in different nominations, turning this into the den of drama that I so accurately predicted, didn't take it with grace and a simple and honest note when withdrawing your own nomination. Nope, you started dragging your terribly hurt feelings across to a new arena. Please continue to prove me right, it gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling. You know, like when you've just eaten a kitten.
    For the record I have better articles sat in my userspace, do you see me dragging them here like a insecure blonde looking for approval? Nope. And why? Because I'm happy to let the articles themselves be the indicator of quality, not an artificial category that I'd meatpuppeted into.

    You really are a pathetic asshole. You still refuse to back down over the core issue. I thought it was a good article. What the fuck is this page called? UDWiki:Featured Articles/Good Articles. So fucking what if I had a hand in writing it. I've contributed to other pages nominated here, too. And I'd have nominated it had all the work been done by Kelly, or Rev, or Gor, or anyone else who contributed. If we all sat and let good pages be justed by their own merit, there'd be no fucking point to this system at all, now, would there? You're forgetting that I put the page up for a vote. One which, despite your incorrect expectations, was left to be voted on naturally and without any meatpuppets. Not that you care. No, no.

    Refuse to back down? If by that do I think that I'm completely right and you're completely wrong, then yes. Slight correction though, you didn't leave the nomination "to be voted on naturally", you quickly removed it in the face of a dissenting opinion. You didn't argue your point that "it was good" you just withdrew it. Can't have been that good if you're not willing to endure some criticism over it. Notice I didn't have to meatpuppet support for my point of view, that's because I had a well constructed argument that I could (and still am) defending. Other users agreed with all or part of that argument, and not with yours. I tell you what, I'll start voting 'simply' on your articles when you have the basic fucking humility not to nominate them yourself or have a minion do it for you, sound fair?

    I have mentioned twice now explicitly why it was withdrawn, and once implicitly whilst withdrawing it. I don't care to have words put in my mouth and motives laid at my feet when neither are true. In the face of a wall of false accusations, I felt it better to withdraw the nomination than to have anyone else start chipping in with lies.

    Wait, you don't like having words put in your mouth and now you're telling me what I am supposed to have known? And I thought only Americans had an irony deficiency. Let's look at the things I am supposed to have accused you of (and anyone with any ability to read can see was directed at the system as it was being used and no names were ever mentioned), we'll just use the second sentence of my vote on your nomination: "This is now going to turn into the same den of drama that the historical system was". Didn't take your own advice about 'simple' responses to suffice did you? No, you dragged your issues over to this second nomination fulfilling the prophecy that certain nominations would turn this into a drama-fest. I called it, you proved it. "Wall of false accusations"?

Without a minimum limit as per historical this system is going to be the new dumping ground when people want a pointless tag for their page to try and be elitist over their piece of shit event/group/tactic/guide/whatever.

    When Cheese and I maintained this GA voting had a very utopian ideal where proper criticism would more or less leave the article moot as a GA. Now RHO and others have started cycling them, it's just become a vote. -- 12:32, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
    You fucking promoted him. There is no attempt to maintain or improve articles in his tenure, it's just a case of throwing a load at voting and seeing what sticks. I would bring this up with him, but he'd ignore the community as he did on his promotion bid, and everything else since he's been promoted.
    This is just going to become Historical Lite, same refreshing drama and meatpuppetry, half the actual people needed to force through the result you want. Historical has a minimum of 15 votes required to be a valid nomination with an approval rating of 66%, this system has no minimum participation limit and is now based around a simple majority. I looked through the archives, do you know how many of these nominations got 15 votes? One. A single one, and that was a user page.

    You know I remember a time when he used to at least ask shit on talk pages and actually listen and respond to the input given there. I wonder what event happened that showed him that ignoring what the community said was a perfectly acceptable action...?
    Regardless, I see you made a concise, point by point response to everything I raised. Oh, wait.... So given we've seen all these problems, potential drama, lack of use of the system, misuse by those supposedly maintaining it added to the fact that this system is not policy backed and thus only needs common sense users to say "Enough!", can we please get rid of this failed experiment already? -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge!

    Or what? You'll ban me? You'll cry more? You'll turn into a truck and make a movie with overt racism? If you actual read what I wrote you'd notice the qualifier "when", meaning 'yet to' and implying 'if and when he does'.

    Now you're changing your objection, first it was "Show me where in the past I've thrown my weight around", now it's "You're saying you think I'm going to throw my weight around at some point in the future". And you'd be right about the second, but that's not what you said originally, so I was right in responding the way I did.

    This isn't a challenge, there are no cages, swords or pistols. This is you misreading, now I must assume intentionally since I've already pointed out your comprehension failure, in order to try and remove the essential qualifier to my original statement.

    Are you naturally illiterate? Or did you just skip the very first sentence of my last post that discussed the nature of this supposed challenge?

    If failure to read is a trend in the admin team you'd make a perfect addition. No, you see I have a term to fulfil as crat, and whilst sticking with a job (all your aborted "policy discussions"? the GSM? your A/M case promises on all of us?) might not be your cup of tea, it's always been my intention to wait until the term ends before I retire, and I've always maintained that, even to you. Not my fault if hearsay tells your it'll be sooner. -- 12:21, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
    We both know that certain people would block my promotion even though I could get more than the four vouches that Red Hawk One managed. My userspace projects are ongoing, and are of no concern to the wider community until they are put in the correct namespace and become actual policy proposals. The GSM was interrupted by three weeks of connection problems, not getting on the intertubes kinda messes with your ability to do shit. Your misconduct case is waiting on a response I get from the UK Information Commissioner's department of helpful monkeys. Anyway, you don't stick at things, especially when there are guarantees that you have to follow through with what you say you'll do, I remind you of the bet that you wouldn't get a ruling on to stop you welching on.

  • Its part of my namespace, and as such might want to change the page name before even considering it's good articleness.
  • Its full of spelling mistakes.
  • It is NPOV. I am merely reporting the result of my investigation into the belief of zerging. I even ask people to come to their own conclusions about what the information suggests.

    It's not technically a vote, it's similar in nature to a promotion bid (but with an article). If several people have raised points against it becoming a good article then those points should be addressed beforehand, hence allowing for improvement of it. If it was a straight majority then we'd have quite a bit of meat-puppeting going on. =p -- Cheese 08:20, 18 May 2009 (BST)
