Hopefully they'll give you a hand! Ah ha. Ha ha. Ah that sucked. –Xoid STFU! 05:56, 5 July 2006 (BST)


Thanks! --Matthew Fahrenheit Talk 02:53, 10 July 2006 (BST)


"P.P.S I'll actually write a script to crawl through the maps and count the building types when I go home today, I should have that list tomorrow, pending I don't go crazy trying to bend AppleScript to my will. --Burgan 16:41, 11 July 2006 (BST)"

Stop being so darn fruity. Ha ha. Ah ha. Ah… that also sucked. Anyway, could I have a copy of that list? Or perhaps you would prefer to add it to the Building Types and Empty Blocks pages? –Xoid STFU! 19:18, 11 July 2006 (BST)

I came here to ask the same thing! Posting it in the wiki would be nice; I'm sure many others are eager for this info as well. If you can, it would be Greatly Appreciated, --Raystanwick 23:20, 11 July 2006 (BST)

Alright, it seems that your totals are accurate, from a cursory inspection. Not sure about the suburbs themselves, but I'm busy. –Xoid STFU! 19:37, 12 July 2006 (BST)

Suggestion Vote Policy

Eh. Sorry. I did that before I checked the rules. Also, it turns out that 2/3rd have to vote "Yes" (in addition for 15 people to have to vote "Yes" as well), otherwise the policy is rejected. Looks like the policy will be rejected anyway, so the Spam Problem will remain.--ShadowScope 03:53, 20 July 2006 (BST)

Welcome to our Wiki

Hi Burgan! As we can see, you made your first edits to this wiki not long ago. It's OK to be new, and we encourage new blood to join and enrich our community. At the same time, we understand that no one is a perfect wiki editor straight off the bat, and, just in case you get stuck, here're some useful tips to help you out. Please take the time to read them.

General Editing
  • Never delete someone else's edits, comments, responses, etc. off community pages. To do so is considered vandalism.
  • If you write a comment it's useful to sign it so that other editors will know who wrote it. You can write "{{User:TripleU/Sig}} 10:13, 14 February 2017 (UTC)" at the end of your comment to sign it, or there's this button Sign.png on the top of the edit page that will sign for you if you want.
  • You may want to know how your edits will look before they have been saved, to make sure that nothing is wrong. Use the "Preview" button before the "Save" button - it's your friend!
  • If you're slow in your editing and there's an editing conflict, you might not understand the error that you get. The easiest way to overcome the edit conflict is to copy whatever you have been writing, go back with your browser, and then re-enter the edit page so that you can add your edits without deleting those made before yours.
  • The wiki is a collaborative project, please do your best to work well with fellow editors.

Further help for editing the wiki can be found on the Help page.

Project Mentor

Project Mentor has been set up to allow new wiki users to have a more experienced wiki veteran mentor them for the first few weeks. Visit its page for more information!

Your User Page

One of the great things about the wiki is that every user can have his or her own user page! These pages are located in the User: namespace — in other words, they all begin with "User:" (yours is User:Burgan). The appropriate place to write about yourself or your characters is on your user page, or a subpage of that page (e.g., User:Burgan/Your Character's Name). Please don't create pages about yourself outside the User: namespace. Those pages will be moved into subpages of your user page, and the original speedily deleted. If you want something to be deleted, use the speedy deletion page; that's why Criterion 7 was made.

User Talk Pages

Every user has a talk page, found by clicking the "discussion" link at the top of his or her user page, or by going directly to it (yours would be User talk:Burgan). If you have a question for someone, or want to say something to him or her, his or her user talk page is the place.

However, many users on the wiki have established specific guidelines for how their user talk pages are to be treated — where new comments should go, how they should be written, what is or is not okay to talk about, etc. Be sure to look for guidelines on the talk page before you leave a comment.

If you don't see any guidelines specified, the assumption is that you should place your comment at the bottom of the talk page, under a level 2 heading. This can be accomplished by clicking the "+" link next to the "edit" tab at the top of the talk page, or by manually typing in your message in this format:

==Message title==

Your message goes here

When replying to a comment already laid on the page, remember to indent it correctly: do it by inserting as many colons plus one to the message you're replying to at the begining of your message, like this:

==Message title==

Your message

:User's reply

::Your reply
The Suggestions Page

We know that as a new user, you want to share your ideas with us. But a community as big as ours has already seen all kind of suggestions, and it's possible that we've already seen something very similar to the ideas you have. Follow these simple guidelines to make sure that your suggestion gets the respect that it deserves:

  • We strongly recommend that you read the Suggestions Dos and Do Nots and the Frequently Suggested Ideas pages so that you will have an idea of what kind of suggestions are likely to be accepted and what kind are ridiculous in the eyes of the community. The pages might look long and time-consuming to read, but you will find them entertaining and helpful.
  • It may be helpful to wait a few days to get a feel for the wiki and the other users before subjecting your idea to any possible criticism. If you're unsure, the Suggestions Discussion page is good neutral territory to suggest, gather feedback, and refine your idea before officially submitting it.
  • Write your suggestion according to these steps. If it looks too complicated for you, ask for help.
  • You can't modify a suggestion that you've written once it has been posted on the Suggestions page. You can withdraw and resubmit it with changes later, but only do that if people liked your original suggestion while requesting changes, not if it was Spaminated.
  • If you get stuck at ANY point in writing your suggestion, ask for help. There's no shame in being new and after a few times, you'll get the hang of it.
Additional Contacts

If there's anything not covered by this introduction, you still have plenty of avenues to find some extra help. Project Welcome and Project Mentor are perfect starting points, but if you have something more pressing at hand, don't be afraid to get in touch with the administration staff.

Remember: These guidelines may look difficult to learn and follow, but they're mainly just common sense! Think about what you're going to say or do before you do it! If you don't make an effort to do so, then why would others have the obligation to be nice to you? Feel free to ask any Project Welcome member if you need help, that's our purpose anyways!

If you want to delete this text, just delete the {{Welcomenewbie}} line from your talk page. Remember that you can always have access to these tips on the Project Welcome/Welcomenewbie page. --Sonny Corleone WTF RRF ASS CoL 20:18, 26 July 2006 (BST)

Just FYI

Jimbo is out of town at the moment, so I doubt he'll see your comment for a few days yet. –Bob Hammero ModB'cratTA 20:27, 28 July 2006 (BST)


Im gonna check google on this one. --Gold Blade 00:39, 2 August 2006 (BST) I figured it out. It's 3%, then added to a 3% of the remaining 97% (i.e 2.91%), giving a 5.91%, continuing with a 3% of the remaining 94.09%, (2.8227) giving a total of 8.7327. That pattern continues. I pretty sure that's right.

Oh no, you're dead...

I couldn't save thine Burgan or thine hamburger, but I did manage to find a nice pizza place nearby. --Mnbvcx 01:33, 2 August 2006 (BST)


I see what you mean, thanks. Enoch the Watcher 19:40, 2 August 2006 (BST)


Thanks for the correction- it's welcomed. ---Captain Leah- 14:18, 10 August 2006 (BST)

Where you convinced or not.

Hello Burgan. You made a comment on an idea I put up on the suggestion talk page about gifts. You asked me to try and convince you that the change would add to the game. I put a reply up. Did I succeed or are you still unconvinced? The Mad Axeman 19:54, 15 August 2006 (BST)


Heh. Just noticed an edit you made. Didn't think that too many people cared about proper formatting nowdays. I must say, I am impressed that you made a stand.

Xoid STFU! 12:41, 16 August 2006 (BST)


Well, I know I didn't want it in a mall, but I had several problems: 1, not in PD's. 2, it would be almost impossible to find otherwise. 3, I needed more than one type of building to have them, and nowhere else seemed reasonable. Where else should i put it? --Gold Blade 21:16, 16 August 2006 (BST) I agree, but having them Armory exclusive somewhat nerfs the whole idea of it: to give low level survivors a chance to get xp, because gaining xp is ridiculously slow when you're level 0. --Gold Blade 21:25, 16 August 2006 (BST) Read the update i put in the mp5 suggestion and you should understand why i decided against armories only.--Gold Blade 20:19, 17 August 2006 (BST)


I know exactly what you mean about the suggestions page (from your user page). Why do you think I stopped going there? I was getting too annoyed just from reading it. But fear not, there are plenty of other, more interesting places on the wiki. –Bob Hammero ModB'cratTA 04:09, 30 August 2006 (BST)


Re: I stand corrected. --Kiltric 23:24, 10 September 2006 (BST)


There are two separate issues here.

  1. is that it allows XP gain without danger, which is strongly against the game philosophy (books are the only exception, and they're useless).
  2. is that Aush has nerfed it down to uselessness in the hopes that people will say "It can't do any harm, therefore why not Keep." Well if it's useless it deserves a Kill. Rheingold 20:10, 12 September 2006 (BST)


It doesnt seem to link to your user page. Any reason why?--Gage 03:21, 14 October 2006 (BST) I suggest that you use '''[[User:Burgan|{{c|black|Burgan}}]]''' [[Image:Black.png|20px]]. That should do the same thing, but it should link to your userpage.--Gage 06:15, 16 October 2006 (BST)

Okay, now that this policy has passed, your signature must link to your userpage. This is your one warning.--Gage 03:00, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
It wasn't an official warning or anything.--Gage 15:53, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Re: It burns

He didn't mean "it burns" as in it looks bad, but that all the coding for it was on every page. It's nice to know what you think, though. --Joe O'Wood TALKCONTRIBSUD 12:23, 28 November 2006 (UTC)


Yeah, I spaced my signature. Thanks for reminding me!--Lachryma 16:00, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Re: Dropped Vote

Yeah, I found it after I reposted my vote. He seemed new, so I only posted mild names on his talk page. --Sgt. Expendable JG 04:31, 12 December 2006 (UTC)


"Now we just have bitter old voters and foolish new voters" So which are you?--Honestmistake 18:48, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Re: Specialization Skills

It's still a stupid idea; that reserves a person to use one weapon. --Joe O'Wood TALKCONTRIBSUD 17:29, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
