Doc Rotten

Hello Doc! here write what you have on mind, so we don't waste AP. First of all I think that we both should get mobiles... and think what we should do actually... Maybe regaining some abandoned building in Miltown district? Maybe this one? It has a mobile mast, hospital, NT and police nearby... And it's a factory, there are gennies there... What you think about it?

Upcoming!

Malton Block Party -- from 20th September! don't miss!

What the hell?

Why did you delete my signature, as seen here?--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 15:57, 10 September 2009 (BST)

I'm going to pipe in and suggest that it was a mistake, it happens from time to time. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 16:07, 10 September 2009 (BST)
Yeah, I tend to do annoyed titles though. I'd still like to know why he did it. Then we can prevent the same mistake again.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 16:09, 10 September 2009 (BST)
Me? No idea. My mistake, eventually. Or maybe some zombies, though. -- Bucz 00:54, 11 September 2009 (BST)

Your Script

If you have a weather-detection script, you may be able to do something a lot more useful than submitting suggestions; if you make a UD-based greasemonkey script with your weather reader, people will actually have a good chance of seeing it implemented.

Why greasemonkey? I don't know much about JavaScript. The script I have made is in Perl, like the engine (I suppose), so it would be easy to integrate. -- Bucz 10:47, 11 September 2009 (BST)
Because Greasemonkey alters Client Side Scripting, allowing users to implement your changes without kevin or Urban Dead having to do a thing. If you have another plugin that accomplishes the same thing, feel free to use that one, but less than .001% of all suggestions are implemented whether they pass or not...

No Wiki Tags

You need to place it in no wiki tags, a button can be found in your tool panel, the crossed red circle with a 'W' in it, or use the raw tags: <nowiki></nowiki>

Ironically, to display the tags I had to put them in no wiki tags.... -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 23:09, 14 September 2009 (BST)

Thanks, but now when I paste the script new lines are not respected - puts all in a single veeery long wrapped (crapped) line... -- Bucz 20:05, 15 September 2009 (BST)

Put only the parts that involve code, the <> parts, in the tags. Lelouch vi Britannia is helping make Ridleybank green_ and gives Achievements 22:33, 15 September 2009 (BST)

<pre></pre> tags did the job. -- Bucz 13:54, 17 September 2009 (BST)

Thanks, but what is this written in? Perl? --Matthewbluewars /New City\ 21:46, 17 September 2009 (BST)

Yup, Perl. And under Linux - I use wget function to download page source (but there are also per functions, it was just easier for me to use embedded Linux-ish one) -- Bucz 23:13, 17 September 2009 (BST)
