Active group

Hey Bob, following your post on my talk page, can you walk me through how to resurrect my group as active and listed within suburbs ? Thanks ! --Murderess (talk) 16:03, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi! Looks like Aichon answered your question, but if you have any others let me know! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 20:50, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
Will do, thank you! And see you on NC ;) --Murderess (talk) 21:53, 25 January 2017 (UTC)


Thank you kindly for the warm welcome! I appreciate all the work you do for the wiki. 🌙j3novac0rps🌙 13:56, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

My pleasure ^_^ Bob Moncrief EBDW! 20:00, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Our Cookies

Did you get the cookie login issue too? --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 23:19, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

I never logged out so I just got the other issue — where I couldn't save any edits. Stelar helped me troubleshoot, and Aich put me in touch with Kevan, who fixed the problem. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 02:31, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
Oh, okay. Good to hear that you had your cookies at least. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 02:51, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I logged out to see what was up after Stelar e-mailed me via the SoC boards, and then promptly found myself locked out of my account. Thankfully, Kevan was quick to respond to Bob and we were all back in action pretty quickly.
Also, I realized I don't get notified about PMs on NecroConnect, and after looking through the board preferences, I'm not actually sure that there's a way to do it at all. Wish there was, since I don't check it unless I'm prompted to, and I wouldn't mind having it as a backup means of reaching me for people who don't know about the SoC or get locked out of the wiki. Aichon 14:45, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
There's no option for email notification from PMs, but you can enable an "Allow members to email you?" setting under Email & Subscription settings. You can also get emails from mass announcements, but I think we've only done one of those since the forum was set up almost two years ago. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 16:50, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, that's the most annoying thing I've found with NecroConnect. I don't think I've ever been part of a forum ever without an option to get email notifications for PMs. Just glad we're back to normal now. Being locked out of the wiki wasn't very fun. stelar (talk) 20:54, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Thank you!

You perform a great task through your actions in Malton. I would like to personally thank you for up to date information regarding the never ending apocalypse. It's hard to get news even through radio these days, so I'm confident that im not the only one who benefits from you on this board. If you're in Grigg Heights sometime and you need a good FAKing or some bourbon, find me in Victor hospital! --McChesney--

Thanks so much! I really appreciate the kind word. I currently reside a couple suburbs away in East Becktown, but if I'm ever in the area I'll say hi! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 03:40, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Thank You For Welcome

Hi Bob thank you for welcoming me to the wiki, it is much appreciated. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by WaitLightning (talkcontribs) at an unknown time.

Replied on your talk page. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 18:36, 28 May 2017 (UTC)


Who am I to stop someone who wants to sysop this place? Approved. Also, if it goes wrong Aichon automatically gets promoted to Crat. --Rosslessness ; the shambling custodian of UD's past... 09:04, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

Agreed. All vouches, and I have no objections. I'll do the promotion in a few. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 10:56, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
Promotion done, and I think all relevant archives updated. (If they're not, blame Aichon. He invented all that :P ) Bob Moncrief EBDW! 11:59, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
To be fair, you're the one who's done the most work on it, so I prefer to blame you. Also, you missed the A/M archives when noting Mis' demotion. :P Aichon 14:53, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
What A/M archives? <_< >_> Bob Moncrief EBDW! 20:56, 29 May 2017 (UTC)

U r no fun

p --hagnat 22:00, 9 June 2017 (UTC)
I save all the fun for discord :P Bob Moncrief EBDW! 04:13, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

There's so much room for activities!

Aichon said he was disappointed by lack of activity on your talk page. So activity activity activity activity activity activity activity activity. Etc :P stelar (talk) 13:35, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Ramble ramble ramble pointless question? activity activity ramble ramble. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 14:56, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
With Spider sowing the seeds of drama below (not that I actually expect it to blossom or grow), all we need now is some stream of consciousness rants to meet my expectations. Aichon 18:45, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
The tree of wiki activity must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of crats and vandals. -- Spiderzed 09:21, 20 July 2017 (UTC)


When and where did the crat discussion about it occur? -- Spiderzed 18:18, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

I was wondering the same thing, actually, given Ross' general leaning towards keeping those discussions on-wiki. Aichon 18:37, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
They must be hiding something. I smell corruption. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 22:27, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
Do you think Ross is actually dead? How long do you think he's been dead? Maybe Bob has been logging in as Ross for months or years... Aichon 02:50, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
I thought I was you, Aich. If I've possessed Ross, and Stelar is also me, then who's driving the car? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 04:16, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
We discussed (incredibly briefly) on Discord. (If you join the UDWiki Discord you can see the discussion.) Bob Moncrief EBDW! 00:20, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

I'm actually Yon. To recreate the discussion, "Hi Bob, I'm in favour of retaining everyone." --Rosslessness ; the shambling custodian of UD's past... 07:19, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

sevlioce undeletion

thanks but I've never been a fan of overly-fascist rules and regulations setup on something that is supposed to be user-run content. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Auralius (talkcontribs) at an unknown time.

Hi! I assume this means you don't want that undeletion? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 15:40, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

lo Bob

you come back, bring pie? Aichon 16:41, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

mmmmmmm! Aichon 18:39, 30 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks and a Question

Hi Bob, thanks for welcoming me to the community. My activities may be rather limited right now, but I have a question that I want answered. It would appear that for the External Military Reports, that reports of "a dozen" are recorded as ~1dzn in short form, but this breaks the formatting in the External Military Report Map. I'm sure that I can't just change rules willy-nilly, and someone else in the past appears to have had a problem with this (as far back as 2009!) and not had any response on the discussions section of the rules for interpreting and recording External Military Reports. So with that in mind, do you know who I would contact to propose a change from ~1dzn to ~12 and ~2dzn to ~24? It seems that some users are just going with that anyway, ignoring the rules, so it would seem natural to have it changed. Thanks again and I hope you have a happy holidays.
