Suggestion Talk

Hey man, you commented on my suggestion but did you read my reply? Your point is that caution should take extra AP - well guess what, players without free running have that risk removed without having to do anything extra, while someone with free running must take extra AP to remove that risk. Does that sound right to you? --ScaredPlayer 01:52, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes, but they can't free run. And like whoever-it-was said, toggling Free Running would be a better suggestion. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 01:53, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation Bob, that's all I was really looking for. Perhaps someone will make that suggestion in the future hopefully. --ScaredPlayer 01:58, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh, and I would have suggested implementing either toggling FR or removing fall damage, but the suggestion tips said not to give people choices. I'm actually happy with either-or. --ScaredPlayer 02:06, 26 March 2009 (UTC)


Your thoughts?--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 18:50, 30 May 2009 (BST)

Everything I would've wanted to say has already been said. Besides the "It's not hard to justify yourself well" thing. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 19:40, 30 May 2009 (BST)
I meant go there and say things instead of other places. That way it's all in one convenient place. :( --Mr. Angel, Help needed? 19:44, 30 May 2009 (BST)
Brb editing that page then! --Bob Boberton TF / DW 19:45, 30 May 2009 (BST)
Yay!--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 19:48, 30 May 2009 (BST)
Done and done! I expanded it a little so I look like I might actually know what I'm talking about. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 19:51, 30 May 2009 (BST)

Zombie Lord

Since what neither of us was saying had anything to do with anything but us attacking each other, I believe I am justified. I didn't remove anyone else's "dealings" with him and I didn't remove posts that were on topic, even if they were attacks. And I think Suicide just had an oopsie there. No big deal. What it boils down to is useless garbage that was filling the page unecessarily and wrecking the suggestions in which they appeared.--Pesatyel 00:34, 1 June 2009 (BST)

Also I love trolling the trolly troll too. If he wants to insult and disrespect other users, he'll have no respect from me. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 00:35, 1 June 2009 (BST)
Which is completely alright and within the boundaries. But I do urge you two not to just continue the insult war, look for a way to end it.--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 00:38, 1 June 2009 (BST)
I'll direct the trollwar towards an end when he starts shaping up and doesn't feel the need to curse in capital letters every other sentence. ;) --Bob Boberton TF / DW 00:46, 1 June 2009 (BST)
But an arbies case will end it now, with just a bit more work that's over on A/A. If he chooses not to participate himself, someone will be choosen to represent him, so either way this is ended. :) --Mr. Angel, Help needed? 00:48, 1 June 2009 (BST)

Thanks for the backup. That dude just wow, I'm not sure what that dude's on. Did you see him answer my question? Well whatever, I posited my question to him in order to point out a flaw in his suggestion (and, maybe attack him a little too, sure, but this time legitimately). Whether he answers or not (which he'll just say I can't read anyway), I'm done.--Pesatyel 01:01, 1 June 2009 (BST)


Sorry if you felt attacked. I didn't mean you, it would be cyber.--Thadeous Oakley, Hurf durf I liek to blink!! 19:14, 1 June 2009 (BST)

It's alright. I hardly take anything on the open internet seriously anyway haha. ;) --Bob Boberton TF / DW 20:22, 1 June 2009 (BST)
Oh. OH! Cyberbob! See, now this is why I regret having picked a common-name Internet alias. Hah. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 20:29, 1 June 2009 (BST)

Hi Bob, thanks for the warm welcome. Hope to see you in The Preston Arms for a few pints.


Dead Historical Status

Hey there. I wanted to talk to you about the voting on the Dead's historical status without clogging up the page. I think this is a really interesting discussion. For instance, in my own group, only 2 players remain from when I first joined, and the original founder was gone before I got there. But we've got 30 members and we're going strong. How do you define a group in an online environment where members and leaders come and go?--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 04:44, 14 June 2009 (BST)


I know I need to make it known, but uh, I don't really know anyone... I told H.A.R.D., and can't think of anyone else to tell...--The Shoemaker Talk Red FactionDinosaur.gif 19:13, 15 June 2009 (BST)

Linkthewindow posted a notice on the main Hollomstown page. That should suffice. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 19:31, 15 June 2009 (BST)

WN Stuff

Hey, Bob. I'd just like you to know, there are quicker ways to get those WN and Wn? templates on the pages without having to sign. Just use {{subst:WN}} and {{subst:Wn?}}. It saves a hell of a lot of time, and makes WN sprees go a lot quicker. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs (status:Mudkip!) 00:51, 16 June 2009 (BST)

I just copy-paste a message I've got and add a question mark if necessary. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 00:52, 16 June 2009 (BST)
That works too, but these subst templates there are very time consuming. You don't even need to sign when using them. I can't force you to use them or anything, but I'm just merely adding a little WN secret into your arsenal. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs (status:Mudkip!) 00:56, 16 June 2009 (BST)
Coming from the guy who spammed the recent changes with his edits, and rarely went back to see if the person needed help beyond that.--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 02:12, 16 June 2009 (BST)

senior cunt

Oh my god... That is solid gold. I've added a link to his homepage on my userpage... I also fixed my about me to annoy him a bit, hope it works. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 02:29, 19 June 2009 (BST)

Also how did you find it? DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 02:32, 19 June 2009 (BST)
He mentioned in his vandalizing edit that his UD account was "Rob#####" (I forget the numbers) and I looked up his game profile in the UD Profile Database. There was a link to it there. :D --Bob Boberton TF / DW 02:57, 19 June 2009 (BST)
If you find a contact email, tell me, would you? I have a few words to say about this user's inconsistencies. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 03:08, 19 June 2009 (BST)
Sure. His profile is Rob25387, and he's got himself a plan to get banned:
"AntiUrbanDead: [1]
My Mission: To get myself banned, I will be making an army of CUNTs. Thats right, admin are lazy fucking dicks, so I'll ban myself with around 100 accounts! LMFAO Fuck you very much for this fun way to get banned!"
haha oh wow --Bob Boberton TF / DW 03:13, 19 June 2009 (BST)

Group advice

Hey, thanks for the warm welcome!

I do have a few questions, I guess. I signed up to create a new group page, Shearbank Patrol, which is meant to be a sort of meta-group for signing off anything that happens in Shearbank, requesting help, etc. Is there anything I need to know about this sort of thing, or any advise you could spare? --Alan Jersie 17:01, 21 June 2009 (BST)

Fuel Siphon Suggestion Comments

Point taken on using the preview button, but if you look at the time stamps on my response comments, neither one has been responded to at the time I'm writing this. I'm not trying to swerve my arguments, my thought process is messy - I think of stuff as I'm typing and, unfortunately, after I've hit the Save Page button (this comment being an example :P) How about I make sure the time stamp reflects the last edit before I walk away and declare the comment "done"?--Jaeger ayers 02:11, 26 June 2009 (BST)

Thanks for the tip on using the minor edit checkbox and mentioning the edit logs - looking at the record of my rapid-fire revisions, I think I need to just slow down and think before I speak :)--Jaeger ayers 02:20, 26 June 2009 (BST)
You get used to it, I used to be the same (and often still am). DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 04:56, 26 June 2009 (BST)

Hey, thank you--

--I've always admired the tank pic on your page. It is pretty stellar and beautiful and I enjoy it very much. lol --Lucy Daniels 09:43, 29 June 2009 (BST)

Annus Horribilis

Hey Bob. Thanks so much for the help. I think I've fixed it now. Perhaps. x --    : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 23:26, 29 June 2009 (BST)


You voted keep for one of my suggestions. SUCCESS. --Haliman - Talk 04:56, 1 July 2009 (BST)

Edits on my page

Hey Bob so ok I hunt The Fortress and we could never likely see eye to eye me being a pker and all, but thank you for ensuring the protection of my marked for death page - I know what you did was simply the right thing but its a game and some people take it a bit too serious you know? I am not into messing around with peoples pages or outside game nastiness so thanks anyway!--C Whitty 22:29, 1 July 2009 (BST)

Yeah... you might have it out for us, but that's no reason not to be civil. Blair might be a bit worse, but I'll tell you, Wiki vandals are even worse than that. :D --Bob Boberton TF / DW 02:42, 2 July 2009 (BST)

another rely

Oh, ok thanks for the welcome, and so far I am enjoying the urban dead wiki.

For now

Please take the time to wait before you're sure that a new user isn't an Izumi alt (as evidenced by them not being banned yet in a reasonable amount of time) before posting that stupid template on their talk pages. --Cyberbob 07:51, 5 July 2009 (BST)


I was wondering why my comment was removed.... -Poodle of doom

Wheres my welcome?

Lol wheres my "welcome to the wiki" thing? I might need help. I think i forgot how to sign my posts--Suffery 09:07, 11 July 2009 (BST)

Successful Test

Of Mudkipz. --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 00:06, 24 July 2009 (BST)


Hi Bob I just did an edit of St Helena hospital in spicer hills (status update) and if you could look at it, where the image indicating safe is there is some text I cant get rid of - any ideas? Thanks --C Whitty 13:06, 28 July 2009 (BST)

I fixed it. Don't put the image code in the 'status' section. Just the status; eg. 'safe'. --ϑϑ 13:10, 28 July 2009 (BST)

Thanks --C Whitty 14:50, 28 July 2009 (BST)

It was a simple mistake.

Im not good with computer code, so I must have screwed it up and accidentally deleted that vote. I have apologized to Thadeous, the person of which made the vote, and the vandalism thing against me. --Justinbronze 23:23, 2 August 2009 (BST)

Pipe bomb, your calculation

Hey Bob, I'm assembling the pipe bomb Mk 2 idea (not because the first one failed but rather because it simply needed a massive overhaul) and I wanted to know If I could use your zombie damage calculations, you would get a little tag on the end of it that would say "-Zombie damage calculation courtesy of user Bob Boberton." Except I would make your name link you your profile. So how about it? (yes I could do my own, but you did them first on the discussion so I thought it might be nice to repay your favor.) -Devorac 22:56, 3 August 2009 (BST)

No problem, you don't even have to give credit... anybody could've done it with basic maths. :P --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 22:58, 3 August 2009 (BST)


that was extremely quick considering you read the whole suggestion in 2 mins and posted that... are you sure you didn't just scim through it and find the word 9% and RNG? just wondering not trying to troll you or anything :P --Gat 05:39, 24 August 2009 (BST)

I read quickly. Sometimes too quickly, and then people think I didn't read things in their entirety. --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 06:18, 24 August 2009 (BST)


For bothering to search through the archives for the dupe. I'm always so bad at it, so I never bother. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 04:17, 3 September 2009 (BST)

No problem. A search turned up only one page title match (the dupe) in the suggestion space. :Ð --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 05:17, 3 September 2009 (BST)

Beat me to the punch!

Dangit,I was going to report that guy who's screwing with DDR's sig. Unfortunately, he's causing the page to load so slow you beat me to it. Good catch none the less :)--~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 01:22, 8 September 2009 (BST)

Heh, we went for the revert of the first one at the same time, and you beat me to that. And yes, adding 100,000 characters to a page makes it really, really slow. --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 01:23, 8 September 2009 (BST)

I found you an owl!

He'll lead you to a prize, but don't be fooled! Look really hard, or you might miss it.

Suggestion : River

My Vote wasn't made after the suggestion was removed. It should not have been struck.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 16:01, 10 September 2009 (BST)

Give me a link and I'll see what I can do. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 16:05, 10 September 2009 (BST)
Suggestion, and my edit, in case you want to check.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 16:07, 10 September 2009 (BST)
Hmm. While you got your vote in before it was officially closed, the author requested it just before you made your vote, it's a similar thing to when we sysops are supposed to close the suggestion after the two week period but leave it a day late, we still have to strike the votes made in that last day, because even though technically we left the vote open till later, those votes aren't valid. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 16:13, 10 September 2009 (BST)
Not that Yonnua's vote matters either way, heh. And if the author had had the wherewithal to close it himself instead of just asking for it to be closed, it would've closed at the same time he made his "can this be closed please" comment, making your vote past due. --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 20:34, 10 September 2009 (BST)
Nah, I just didn't see his comment, and seeing as it wasn't on the actual suggestion page, I disregarded it when saying this. Ah well. --Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:17, 10 September 2009 (BST)
Yeah, took me a bit to find it too. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 00:29, 11 September 2009 (BST)


Perceptive. The story goes that Read's browser/mac is going on a rampage and leaving signatures around the place in random chunks of text. I see another Donkey game emerging ;D --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 00:29, 11 September 2009 (BST)

I believe you mean Donkey.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 07:28, 11 September 2009 (BST)


Iscariot has started an a/vb case against us because we posted on User:Iscariot/PD/1. I seemed to miss it, but he had a template at the top of the page saying that no-one could post there unless invited specifically by him. He was tryign to keep it within certain users or something. Anyway, I'm just notifying you of the case, because it would seem Iscariot thought it best not to tell us.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 07:38, 16 September 2009 (BST)

He's already seen it, noted via A/VB's talk page. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 08:15, 16 September 2009 (BST)

Excuse me, sir

I see you are part of the wiki team. I'm fairly new here and trying to build a page. In the last few days someone is harassing me about deleting some images I'm not using. I don't know what he's talking about or how to do it. But, he won't leave me alone and he's scaring me. I'm afraid he's going to mess up my page. Can you help me?--Taco2 14:06, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

I really wouldn't worry too much about it. Cyberbob just loves his delete button, and even if he deletes your images, you can just upload them again. If he deletes them illegitimately or "messes up your page," he'll have to answer for his actions either through Vandal Banning or Misconduct. --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 20:00, 28 November 2009 (BST)

I stole my signature-method from boxy: Put all the code for it (with timestamp substitutions) in the Nickname field in preferences, and have Raw Signatures checked. Then, all you have to do is sign with ~~~ so the timestamps don't double up. For example, here's what I've got in my nickname box:
'''[[User:BobBoberton|<span style="color: #FF4500">Bob Boberton</span>]] <sup>[[The_Fortress|<span style="color: #6B8E23">TF</span>]] / [[The_Fortress/Dark_Watch|<span style="color: #778899 ">DW</span>]]</sup>''' [[Image:Littlemudkipsig.gif]] {{subst:LOCALTIME}}, {{subst:LOCALDAY}} {{subst:LOCALMONTHNAME}} {{subst:LOCALYEAR}} (BST)
Oh, that reminds me - I should switch that back to UTC. --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 20:53, 14 December 2009 (BST)
