pinata

My changes on the Pinata are not self-promotion. They are fact, just like the Red Rum statistic is fact. If it is not true, that is one thing, find someone with more recorded and I'll agree with you. But if it is true, then you should leave it. --Krazyxman 01:26, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

If you want to make a claim like that and have it stick, you'll need to provide evidence/proof to be displayed next to the claim. If you cannot provide such proof, it is highly unlikely it will remain on the page. Also, don't make the page Krazyxman, it will be deleted, all your info has to go on your user page. sorry. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 01:34, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
I have the proof already on my user page which I now linked to instead of the other link. I was unaware of that possibility but now it is fixed. --Krazyxman 02:00, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
It's not a very interesting fact, and not really noteworthy enough to be on the main page. One guy, who's created 14 pinatas? And it's not proof that you are the "pinata master", it's just evidence that you're the only one who's bothered to collect the screenshots. Red rum were the first group to do it in any coordinated manner, which makes much more of an impact than one guy, and his reviver -- boxy 05:48, 12 December 2011 (BST)
The fact that I have done over 50 is a noteworthy statistic, but I have only started keeping track of them recently as I have said many times before. I have no reason to lie, have been playing the game a while now and have many people, both survivor and zed alike who can testify to my presence and actions in the game. Also, I have no reviver, and while the original intent behind Los Diablos was to utilizing the Pinata as a team strategy, I do not have any active players with which to utilize this opportunity with, and have been operating solo for quite a long time now and I don't even play any alts. --KRaZyXmAn 17:49, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Curious

When did everyone here get so touchy that they couldn't separate a point from the person making it? Even at the worst of back in the day it wasn't that bad. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 11:05, 29 August 2011 (BST)

Oh, I dunno. There's just less trolling/humour used lately, and the community is smaller, is all Tongue :P -- boxy 12:05, 29 August 2011 (BST)
You know it's a real shame we're losing that one there. I certainly will miss his witty repertoire, the way he systematically decimates a point with his seamless logic, the unarguable confidence in the purity of his conviction. Oh what a loss of the weighty input he brought to the wiki on a daily basis, however will we cope in the absence of his discerning glare? Where ever will we find someone so willing to jump into the fray, the endless confusion, and help bring something better from the refuse heap as he? --Karekmaps 2.0?! 15:32, 29 August 2011 (BST)
people dont agree with me must be cause they are biased ablobloo -- ϑanceϑanceevolution 04:25, 30 August 2011 (BST)

This should go back on the page. I don't think it is confusing at all (obviously, because I think I'm originally the one who started putting the current time on elections), if you do, perhaps you should find some way to make it clearer, rather than removing it all together. It is a useful piece of information that saves people from having to find out the server time some other way, to tell when a vote is over -- boxy 21:30, 29 August 2011 (BST)

I don't know that I can agree with that assessment looking at the results since it's been implemented. It's the only significant thing that changed to cause people to mistakenly vote up to a week past the "deadline"(which before it used to just be the day not x absurd hour). As a user who made that mistake himself unintentionally I can at least verify it is extremely easy to do. Also we really shouldn't be setting essentially random server times for vote ends anyway so the whole thing really probably shouldn't exist, it doesn't bring anything positive to the system other than a date of completion. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 21:57, 29 August 2011 (BST)
Actually, the people voting after the deadline happened because people started linking promo bids on various forums, and people turned up ages later trying to vote.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:43, 29 August 2011 (BST)

Sig Problems Boxy?

Maybe I'm daft but your sig looks the same as it always has to me. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 13:57, 21 April 2011 (BST)

I don't use a templated sig, so my old ones didn't change, but I can't seem to get the code I was using to work as a sig now, only a bare basic sig... ie. -- boxy 14:34, 21 April 2011 (BST)
Is the treat signature as wikitext box marked? --Karekmaps 2.0?! 14:57, 21 April 2011 (BST)
i take it this has somthing to do with the update? b/c my sig is broke also. the code is too long? guess i'm back to templated sigs. :P ---- bitch  15:08, 21 April 2011 (BST)
It looks fine to me. What browser are you using? ~Vapor 15:11, 21 April 2011
no whats going on is where you enter code for your sig the text box is smaller.. so if you have a bunch of code. you are fucked. like boxy and I... I can only enter about half of it now. and the small date/time thing does not work with template sigs.---- bitch  15:16, 21 April 2011 (BST)
Oh I see. Well you can have a templated sig but subst it. For example here is preferences: {{subst:User:Vapor/sig}} <sub>{{subst:LOCALTIME}}, {{subst:LOCALDAY}} {{subst:LOCALMONTHNAME}} {{subst:LOCALYEAR}}</sub>. So the code for my sig is stored on User:Vapor/sig but when I sign, the code is subst'd and the template isn't called. ~Vapor 15:30, 21 April 2011
Same as Vapor and mine is unaffected. Looks like that's how it has to be done now.--Yonnua Koponen T G P ^^^ 15:32, 21 April 2011 (BST)
oh i think i just thought of a way around it.---- bitch  15:42, 21 April 2011 (BST)
fixed i just added the time code stuff to my sig code with <small></small>. and left the image stuff as a template. great now I get to keep the look i wanted. remeber this is how I wanted it in the first place.. win!---- bitch 15:47, 21 April 2011
One of the new features is an option to limit the size of sigs; evidently the default is less than we are used to. I suspect that it'll be easier to template the sigs than to get Kevan to change it.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 17:11, 21 April 2011 (BST)

Testies -- boxy 00:38, 22 April 2011

Just to butt-in but is it against the rules to incorporate the time stamp into your sig? or would that be wiki breaking?--Weed.jpgArthur DentWeed.jpg BIN LADEN IS DEAD!!!!! 14:11, 22 April 2011 (BST)

As long as you always sign with ~~~ instead of ~~~~ (inserting just the sig without the timestamp, thus avoiding double time stamps), it should work splendid. Not sure if it would work properly with templated sigs, though. -- Spiderzed 14:25, 22 April 2011 (BST)
Yeah ran into a problem with the new sig limits, has anyone told kevan?, because it is very easy to bypass it with templated sigs--Weed.jpgArthur DentWeed.jpg BIN LADEN IS DEAD!!!!! 14:35, 22 April 2011 (BST)
We haven't told Kevan yet because we're still finding out what all is broken and what we can just fix ourselves. Discussion is happening at UDWiki_talk:Administration/Discussion#Wiki_update_FAQs. In the case of signature length, I think the default value of 255 characters is being used in Default.php. Kevan needs to change &MaxSigChars to something other than 255 Ideally it would be whichever number was used before. ~Vsig.png 14:53, 22 April 2011
yeah i bypassed with a combo of the two. and sign with ~~~--  bitch 14:58, 22 April 2011
Sweet, but can someone check it out for obvious coding defects? --Weed.jpgArthur DentWeed.jpg BIN LADEN IS DEAD!!!!! 16:44, 23 April 2011
Your sig is bound to cause trouble by not closing the bolding tags. If you want a bolded timestamp, you are going to need to subst your sig so that all tags can be closed. -- Spiderzed 16:50, 23 April 2011 (BST)
Fixed for you, but if you want bold timestamp than as spider said, you'll have to subst it using magic words and three tilde signing. ~Vsig.png 16:54, 23 April 2011
or just have two bold groupings --Weed.jpgArthur DentWeed.jpg BIN LADEN IS DEAD!!!!! 20:20, 23 April 2011

You can't do it with templated signatures. In my preferences => User profile => Nickname I have:

But it wasn't. The section he posted in was about templating sections of a few particular pages. Instead, he commented on my recent mass editing of my group subpages, where I racked up over two hundred edits (one hundred last night, and one hundred today), and was pumping it out like rapid fire...

Radio Edit

The Mad Craskers have had 26.07 as their dedicated frequency for five years. As such, they get to share it with the suburbs or the suburbs have to move.--Justinbronze 03:56, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

I think you're confused. The game isn't quite five years old, the Mad Craskers aren't even 3.5 years old, and, as far as I can tell, those frequencies have been assigned as they are since the summer of 2006 or earlier, which was before the Mad Craskers were formed. Besides which, no single group is more important than five suburbs in the game. There's nothing stopping the Mad Craskers from conducting their transmissions over those channels, but those channels are already dedicated to that district, and there's no changing that without a lot of discussion on Talk:Radio, so best of luck with that. Aichon 04:22, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
The Mad Craskers have owned the frequency before it was assigned to districts. Therefore it is theirs.--Justinbronze 12:39, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
You say that, then provide no evidence. Please check this page. You'll find various mentions of district frequencies being used from before the Mad Craskers were even formed, so your claim is patently false. And no one "owns" the frequency anyway; it's merely designated for certain uses, and in this case, the designation as a district frequency has been in place since before your group was formed and can only now be changed by discussing it on Talk:Radio, not by getting on boxy's case about it. Aichon 17:57, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Go to the Mad Craskers Forum and ask around. We have held the frequency since before there was even a Radio page. --Justinbronze 21:07, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

There is a difference between "held" and "used" -- boxy talkteh rulz 21:13 19 February 2010 (BST)
And stop bullshitting about your group being around before radio. Your group page clearly states it was started in Sept 2006, and here is a quote from the Radio archive page (notice the date). Every suburb in Malton should have 1 dedicated frequency. The frequencies belong to the public and public should come before any INDIVIDUAL group, big or small. A frequency for every suburb! --FreeMalton 23:31, 1 June 2006 (BST) -- boxy talkteh rulz 21:18 19 February 2010 (BST)
And unless you go to A/A and try to cement your claim, you're going to get nowhere on this. Popular opinion on this wiki will always support the needs of the community, especially if it's been that way for 4 years. -- 22:16, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

I don't think there's a need to make note of them all on a/pt, as long as you make it clear in your edit summary why it is being made -- boxy talkteh rulz 07:15 23 November 2009 (BST)

The DHPD and Conndraka

Hi boxy. A public statement from the DHPD around Conndraka's recent actions on the wiki, as per http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php/UDWiki:Administration/Protections/2009/October#The_DHPD_know_how_to_use_headers... has been posted to our section of the wiki at http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php/Dunell_Hills_Police_Department/Policies_and_Procedures#DHPD_Stances

Given that you were involved in the original discussion, can you please advise if we should be posting this to any other sections of the wiki and/or letting anyone else know about our decision? It'd be great if you could reply to my talk page. Cheers. -- Sanpedro 23:18, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Cheers - I was wondering if you would mind calling past our forum so that I we can confirm this? I also have an unrelated question that I would like to ask out of the public eye 1 Sanpedro 00:04, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Confirming Groups

I'll admit, in retrospect creating the new pages wasn't the best idea, since they're liable to drop off at any moment. the category, however, was for sorting purposes; about two thirds of the groups in the origional don't belong there anymore, so I found it would be easier to sort the actual stat-page groups out than the other way around. The groups are free to be deleted; the category as well (once I finish, of course). Sorry if this seems like unnecissary mess.--~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 19:01, 7 September 2009 (BST)

It's probably going to get messy, and be a neverending job. Frankly, I'd just get rid of the confirmed group category all together. It's a remnant of a passed wiki-era, when defunct groups got crit 12 speedydeleted. It has no real function any more. I'll put those group pages up for deletion, if they're still around -- boxy talkteh rulz 10:29 8 September 2009 (BST)

If you're around, I have a quick task for you to do. Template:Group contact= and the similar pages (check either user contribs or "whatlinkshere" from the actual image) should be in namespaces/recruit formatting/deleted, whatever suits. I'm at uni and don't have the time just now so if you're on today, to give it a go, I'd appreciate it. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 04:41, 11 August 2009 (BST)

Welcomenewbie Template

Hey Boxy. Wanted to ask: why is the {{subst:WN}} version of the Welcomenewbie template is protected, while the main one isn't?--User:Axe27/Sig 21:26, 23 July 2009 (BST)

Recategorisation

I remember you had a spree of edits a while ago that was you recategorising certain images. Assuming you didn't finish, is it anything I can help with? DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 16:27, 26 June 2009 (BST)

Oh, I work on Category:Page Elements every now and then. Trying to separate out all the sub-category images that should be in Ribbons, Icons, Emoticons, Group Images, Maps, Screenshots, etc. It's become a sort of a catchall category, full of stuff that should be elsewhere -- boxy talkteh rulz 11:37 27 June 2009 (BST)
I absolutely agree. The system fails because those extra categories aren't features on the Template:Image Categorisation, imo, thats where most users learn. I may fix it up later on. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 13:43, 27 June 2009 (BST)

AH Historic Re-categorization

May I ask why the old AH page now indicates that Axes High is inactive? I created that page to archive the activities of Axes High before the massive wiki history cleanup... Axes High is still very much active, and I would appreciate a reversion of the article to its prior state.

Thanks, Hardcore Rockabilly, Retired FAE Axes High AH RR RRF

The old AH page already specified that it was inactive. Boxy just got rid of the historical template and added the inactive one. Being a historic group means it is inactive anyway, and because he only made the change on Axes High (Historic), it never affected the new AH to start with. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 08:34, 28 May 2009 (BST)
The historic groups category is for inactive groups who have been voted historic. I edited a lot of pages that weren't supposed to have that template on them. All of the others (hopefully) were inactive. Sorry about that, I've removed the template altogether -- boxy talkteh rulz 08:34 28 May 2009 (BST)
Hmm. I thought they were different groups. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 08:36, 28 May 2009 (BST)
Ah, they could well be... but I've had enough of UD history for the moment ::) -- boxy talkteh rulz 08:40 28 May 2009 (BST)

There is no "new" AH, as it's been the same group with a constant (though occasionally small) membership since its creation. If you'd like, I can have Tenk pop on over and back this up... There's the current page and the historic one (having a 3.5 year-old group neccesitates preserving at least a minimum of historic info when a history wipe rolls around). I don't know why it was listed as "historic", as when I created the page it was a subpage of the AH page (Axes High/Historic). Hardcore Rockabilly, Retired FAE Axes High AH RR RRF

That's where it should have stayed. All this time, I've read the historic one thinking it was a separate historical group and your Axes High was just a new-age clone under separate command. Either way is fine though. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 08:49, 28 May 2009 (BST)
If it's their page then it wants to be moved into their group space properly, Axes High/Old for instance. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 08:53, 28 May 2009 (BST)

BBSC

Ya I am the same person. I have 3 accts on ud, one of em is bonghit420... i had like 4 people in that group BBSC one was true blood... he is my brother in rl.. now he does not play ud n e more and the other two people that asked to join never showed up... so I have made a decision to end that group, plus its name was to stupid. and i am starting a new group called My School... it is going to be a group dedicated to fucking up schools. and anything else lol... But for now i just wanted to get that page down because it was a work in progress that i just did not feel like finishing... to prove i am the same person just email me at scar3crow36@yahoo.com and i will respond that i have lost my password for my other acct on here Jock Horror when i cleared my cookies... so its no big deal..--Jhorror 06:59, 25 May 2009 (BST)

-Well if changing my group to batshit insane is not enough then i dont know what is. I will not change my UD profile just to remove a page... so i guess whenever you do the group clean up thing and never get a responce from me then it will get removed right? Like i have said before, you can email me and i will respond there. You have my word that I am who I say I am.--Jhorror 00:35, 26 May 2009 (BST)

Go to my preferences, click the Recent Changes tab, then put in your desired number. 750 will actually do most of the time, if you check at least once every day and a half or so. But on periods of long removal, I tend to amp it up higher.--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 00:43, 18 May 2009 (BST)

It only goes to 500. --  AHLGTG 02:30, 18 May 2009 (BST)
Actually, via preferences, you can increase it to a base of 2500. I think with some browser tweaking though, you can increase it up to 5000. Not sure yet. Never had to do it.--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 02:37, 18 May 2009 (BST)
So it can, if a bit slowly. But can your "watchlist" remove the boring stuff, leaving only the important things behind? I think not!--  AHLGTG 02:40, 18 May 2009 (BST)
It's only slow because your internet/computer sucks. And also, it can, because my brain is notorious for not caring about things that aren't captivating. Also, my watchlist is now empty, because I cleared it and decided to stop adding everything I edit to it. Now, it's just going to be unused.--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 02:43, 18 May 2009 (BST)

Template Question

I'm trying to figure out how to display the month in which a page was last modified in named form. I know {{REVISIONMONTH}} exists, but it displays the month in numeric form. This would work, but having both a date and month expressed numerically can be confusing, as their positions are interchangeable in common usage. Anyway, I tried to create a template {{REVISIONMONTHNAME}} by using code from wikipedia and {{REVISIONMONTH}}. This has failed and I can't figure out how to get it to work. Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated. --Zarneverfike 07:44, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

What do you need it for? The revision date is at the bottom of pages for me, already. For example, "This page has been accessed 15,589 times. This page was last modified 07:44, January 6, 2009" is at the bottom of this page -- boxy talkteh rulz 10:26 6 January 2009 (BST)
I wanted to use it in another template: {{Mobile Phone Mast Coverage}}, based on the Monroeville and Borehamwood population templates. I wanted to include a last revised date on the template, so it would be convenient to see how current the network coverage number was. Using the revision templates would make updating the mobile coverage template slightly easier, as only the % number would have to be updated. Like I said, {{REVISIONMONTH}} would suffice, but I think having the month in named form is potentially less confusing, and also, in my opinion, looks better. I tried playing around with the {{REVISIONMONTHNAME}} template a bit, but its above my wiki editing skill level. Oh, and yes, if templates created for this little project fail / aren't used a speedy deletion will be their ultimate fate. --Zarneverfike 22:17, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
I'd guess that the problem is that we don't have parser functions installed in this wiki (I think). Pity really, because I could use it in one of my projects -- boxy talkteh rulz 10:03 7 January 2009 (BST)
I think I may actually have gotten it to work. Turns out {{switch}} was used prior to parser functions on wikipedia, and was a valid template here. Anyway, I'm almost certain {{REVISIONMONTHNAME}} works properly now (though I guess I won't know for certain until February.) Anyway, thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Also, I'll submit the two unused templates created in the process: {{MONTHNAME}} and {{MONTHNUMBER}} to A/SD. Thank you again for your help. --Zarneverfike 11:01, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Edit: Given further thought, {{REVISIONMONTHNAME}} is useless, as it would only display when it was last revised. Its code is now directly included in the mobile coverage template I was working on. {{REVISIONMONTHNAME}} will join its cousins in the speedy deletion queue. Thanks anyway for the help though. --Zarneverfike 11:17, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
You might also want to put that failed template up for A/SD by the way. Unless you can change it over to something useful or that works.--– Nubis NWO 11:32, 6 January 2009 (UTC)


I made something to this effect in ProjDev. Just haven't quite bothered finishing it yet. Depending on how soon it's needed and how major a part of the project it is I could always fast track it for you.--Karekmaps?! 06:46, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, it ended up working, but not as I intended. All the revision templates called the final page they were included on, and not the phone mast template. It would be slightly preferable if I could figure out how to make them work how I want them. In the mean time, I've resorted to tildes (which work fine, but are an extra step for anyone updating the template, and produce a more precise, but less aesthetically pleasing result.) --Zarneverfike 13:58, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
