A/VB - I'm disappointed, DDR. Really. --Haliman - Talk 03:43, 1 July 2009 (BST)

yeah ddr why cant you ignore pretty much every rule in the book so we can all have a creepy laugh over a GURL ON TEH INTERNET --Cyberbob 03:45, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Yep. --Haliman - Talk 03:46, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Rules are rules. It is obviously humorous, regardless of how serious Moonie claimed. I also warned Moonie via IRC that this would be the outcome. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 03:48, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Rules are rules, and you warned him on IRC that it would be vandalism... obviously the course of action you would take in response would be to vote Keep on it and wait until someone else brought him to A/VB to openly declare it as such. --Cyberbob 03:58, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Was one hour too much for you, Bob? Everything happens in it's due course, there is no reason why my right to vote should immediately become nullified by my position as a sysop. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 04:00, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Yes one hour was too much, and your "right to vote" does not extend to turning a blind eye to vandalism. --Cyberbob 04:03, 1 July 2009 (BST)
It's a joke! Even if it technically is Vandalism, who was hurt? --Haliman - Talk 04:05, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Where was this "argument" every other time a humourous suggestion in the main space has been ruled vandalism? --Cyberbob 04:07, 1 July 2009 (BST)
I probably wasn't online when it happened? --Haliman - Talk 04:08, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Why would that stop someone who obviously feels as strongly about this topic as you? --Cyberbob 04:11, 1 July 2009 (BST)
It's not creepy! --dgw 04:11, 1 July 2009 (BST)
lets have a sowrd fite over it!!!!!!!! --Cyberbob 04:14, 1 July 2009 (BST)
*draws her sword* en garde! --dgw 04:19, 1 July 2009 (BST)
I haven't noticed any cases of this before this one is what I'm trying to say. --Haliman - Talk 04:12, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Surely you'd go looking if it matters to you so much? --Cyberbob 04:14, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Yep. But I didn't know I would care that much until just now. --Haliman - Talk 04:16, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Why don't you go make a policy repealing humourous suggestions in the mainspace being vandalism, as well as the elimination of the separate Humourous Suggestions space? I'm sure you care deeply enough to actually get your hands dirty over it. --Cyberbob 04:19, 1 July 2009 (BST)
That comment doesn't even deserve a yep. --Haliman - Talk 04:22, 1 July 2009 (BST)
If you don't care enough to actually go out and do something about it then you shouldn't bother opening your mouth. --Cyberbob 04:26, 1 July 2009 (BST)
I'll say whatever the hell I want. I WILL NOT BE SILENCED! --Haliman - Talk 04:27, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Hey, I'm not complaining - your bleatings are always good for a laugh. I'm just saying. --Cyberbob 04:29, 1 July 2009 (BST)
How can one person unilaterally decide that a well-recieved suggestion is humorous? What guidelines are there for determining that something is humorous? omg wikidrama!! I want to get drunk and vote for Fiffy without being told it's humorous! *sharpens sword moar* --dgw 04:30, 1 July 2009 (BST)
you're dumb. --Cyberbob 04:32, 1 July 2009 (BST)
I'm dumb? You're tryin to kill people's fun. And it's a serious question, even if it seeeeems obvious to you in this case that it's humorous. --dgw 04:41, 1 July 2009 (BST)
How am I killing your fun? You can still have your funny suggestion, just not in the main area. Go to Humorous Suggestions and post it there. --Cyberbob 04:46, 1 July 2009 (BST)

Bob, Done. and DDR: "Also, I'd prefer a "Ban Retards" button which would instantly ban all petty users, and Umbrella employees in the blink of an eye" - Good Thing I'm NOT an Umbrella Employee ^_^ --Haliman - Talk 04:59, 1 July 2009 (BST)

Any pitiful group with Umbrella in it's name is a retarded attempt at copying a legitimate antagonist faction from a well-respected videogame franchise. I don't care how both you two groups refer to each other, but to the outside world you are both Umbrella. Both you and the other Umbrella should be ashamed of yourselves. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 05:01, 1 July 2009 (BST)
I'm ashamed of the OTHER pitiful Umbrella if that counts for anything. ^_^ --Haliman - Talk 05:04, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Judging a group you have never been into, now that is pitiful. --Thadeous Oakley 10:22, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Your opinion of pitiful does not sway me, Mistergame. Avoiding an arbitration case which you previously accepted, by spurting bits of Dutch is pitiful to me, but I don't run in and whinge about it. If you were the exact same group but called the Parasol Biohazard Containment Service, then perhaps I wouldn't be against your group, however tryhard and irritating it looks (Grand Marshal? General? Please...) But I don't approve of groups taking the name of Umbrella and making it into the own group. Furthermore, when two groups who plagiarised the name go on a massive drama/vandal spree because both the groups were unoriginal enough to make their own group name, then it tips the boat for me. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 10:30, 1 July 2009 (BST)
I accepted that arbitration as much as a post-order bride accepts her marriage. The case would have gone through without me so a choice, no I hadn't. And be happy about Umbrella. Both groups are well organized, structured, nice wiki and have been or are successful to a good extent. If we would disband UC and UBCS then you can count on one hand how long it would take for a trenchcoater to turn Umbrella into the laughingstock that probably won't even hit the statspage. You can't create a zombie apocalypse without Umbrella turning up sooner or later. At least now its something good. --Thadeous Oakley 11:08, 1 July 2009 (BST)
It's a terrible and embarrassingly unoriginal concept for a group, but as long as we get in there before some noob trenchcoater, it'll be okay is a very poor mentality to have. You had no interest in talking to suicidalangel, as you don't now, so you should have just refused the case and have someone else represent you, it would at leased be the mature, productive thing to do. My talk page has had enough petty junk on it for one day, as you'd notice above, and I have no interest in furthering this argument about the Umbrellas or your arbitration woes. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 11:13, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Thadeous has a point. The groups are, to some extent, successful, the groups are somewhat calm towards each other now, and the members aren't powertripping troll assholes. We could go about making fun of every group weaker than us, but we don't, because we're not egomaniacs. Just my two-cents. --Haliman - Talk 04:08, 2 July 2009 (BST)

Milla was pretty hot in the first movie. --Brigadier Sergeant Major Field Marshal Paddy Dignam 23:28, 1 July 2009 (BST)

/me sighs. Better sig now? --Haliman - Talk 04:14, 2 July 2009 (BST)
I'll vote no, because it still has the petty message to Cyberbob at the end. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 04:46, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Same here - for that reason and that I've seen better versions. "General" was alright, "Grand Marshal" was silly (but that might be the anti-WoW talking), and the current one falls in between those two. Maybe just "Haliman - UBCS" or something. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 04:49, 2 July 2009 (BST)
I refuse to change the Yep. Maybe Founder of the UBCS, or UBCS Wiki Editor? --Haliman - Talk 05:10, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Maybe just get rid of the bureaucracy and unnecessary self-titling, if people wanted to find out the founder of the group, they would look at the group page, if they wanted to see the Wiki Editor, they would check the history. Putting it in your signature appeals to them, but the other 96% of the wiki probably find the titling a little redundant. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 05:14, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Well, good point. But just "Haliman" sounds too dull.. Any ideas what I should put with it? --Haliman - Talk 05:18, 2 July 2009 (BST)
If your name is boring, maybe try jazz up the formatting, I guess. When I'm bored with my sig I just change the formatting to a dif style/colour. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 05:20, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Hmm... Maybe. I like my format tho D: --Haliman - Talk 05:25, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Colour? Variety is the spice of life! DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 05:27, 2 July 2009 (BST)
One sec. :) --Haliman - Talk 05:29, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Well, green pops out, but idk. --Haliman - Talk 05:36, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Instead of "Green", use "DarkOliveGreen". DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 05:39, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Or even "SeaGreen". DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 05:40, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Now it seems too old and crusty... And I swear if ANY of my guys make a comment... --Haliman - Talk 05:47, 2 July 2009 (BST)
I guess. I saw you try black, that was alright. When in doubt, go black. The other ones previously, like blue and stuff, were good, I just didn't like green. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 05:49, 2 July 2009 (BST)
I didn't try black. I tried the non-existent OliveGreen, so it reverted to back. I tried blue, steelblue, and slateblue. But meh. Idk. --Haliman - Talk 05:51, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Hali, that sig looks like you. Old and lame. Die in a fire. loljk <3 --Skouth 05:52, 2 July 2009 (BST)
MidnightBlue? DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 05:53, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Maybe make your sig text black or a dark colour and try lighter backgrounds. :P --Bob Boberton TF / DW 05:55, 2 July 2009 (BST)
I like this one alot. Agreed? --Haliman - Talk 07:38, 2 July 2009 (BST)
Still hate the self titling and now its twice as long as before. But at leased you used Midnightblue. That's good enough for me. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 09:48, 2 July 2009 (BST)

Template help

How do you format a template so it will show up on a page if you only put Template:Suchandsuch? --Imthatguy 16:04, 3 July 2009 (BST)

Ah, see if you want to put a page up as a template (for example, that page in your userspace, you do {{User:XXXXXX/Page}}. That way it just uses the page as a source instead of searching in the Template: namespace. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 16:07, 3 July 2009 (BST)

Awrr - Don't kill civility!

Oh buddy I can't believe you just voted against my civility article. You know you loves it, and the "Text-rape rules!" crowd hardly needs your support. Come baby change your vote. STRONG VARCH!--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 19:28, 6 July 2009 (BST)

Aww. Look, I do love it, but the against votes were just too right. Cmon, surely you know another buddy who can push that article over 50%... DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 01:37, 7 July 2009 (BST)
Yarp. I could probably round up some support from my groups. Oh well. I'll just crawl over to them with this knife in my back. Love, --GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 05:16, 7 July 2009 (BST)
hope you enjoy the sight of me striking votes due to meatpuppetry --Cyberbob 05:19, 7 July 2009 (BST)
What is this "meatpuppetry" you speak of? --GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 05:32, 7 July 2009 (BST)
Do you really not know or are you being cute? --Cyberbob 05:34, 7 July 2009 (BST)
I really don't know how you mean it in this context. I would think of meatpuppetry as being using alts or something to vote. --GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 05:36, 7 July 2009 (BST)
That's sockpuppetry. Linkthewindow  Talk  05:37, 7 July 2009 (BST)
No Giles, you are the puppets. (Meatpuppetry is like sockpuppetry, except they're actually different people. Like that Fiffy lazer beem eyes suggestion.) --Bob Boberton TF / DW 05:40, 7 July 2009 (BST)
This too. Linkthewindow  Talk  05:45, 7 July 2009 (BST)

Of course. Under sockpuppetry in the wiki, we find a subsection for meat puppet: "Editors of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia use "meat puppet" to deprecate contributions from a new community member if the new member was (apparently) recruited by an existing member only to back up the recruiting member's position." Of course I wouldn't stoop to that. A couple of members of CAPD and the SWA do already actively maintain wiki accounts and contribute to the wiki. I'm not above shooting them a link to the voting on our forums and asking them to make up their own minds. That certainly isn't meatpuppetry, yeh? --GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 05:42, 7 July 2009 (BST)

It is, but only slightly. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 05:43, 7 July 2009 (BST)
Whether it's slightly or strongly meatpuppetry is irrelevant. --Cyberbob 05:44, 7 July 2009 (BST)
Isnt that what the democrats and republicans do every election? I also demand proof that he is meatpuppeting or im putting cyberbob up for misconduct--Imthatguy 05:48, 7 July 2009 (BST)
you're precious --Cyberbob 05:50, 7 July 2009 (BST)
Firstly, real life =/= UDwiki.
Secondly, you're an idiot. Misconduct is for abuse of sysop powers (not just regular editing,) and Bob never accused Giles of anything. He warned him against meatpuppeting. Linkthewindow  Talk  05:51, 7 July 2009 (BST)
Apart from anything else, Giles, meatpupeting is hella lame. It's a fucking guide, FFS. Some people don't think it deserves to be a reviewed one, and voted that way. Deal with it, instead of fucking over the wiki by getting your mates, who wouldn't have otherwise voted, to force it through simply to stroke your own ego -- boxy talkteh rulz 21:50 7 July 2009 (BST)
but some people have self-esteem issues and need this kind of internet glory or they get all emo and everyone dislikes emos --Bob Boberton TF / DW 21:53, 7 July 2009 (BST)

Votes unstruck. There is nothing in the rules that permits anyone from removing anyones votes unless they are made by sock puppets. Until such time as there is something that allows it, kindly piss off. - Grim s

I have no idea why you guys are so apeshit over such a minor, petty vote, when there have been plenty over other more seriousness meatpuppeting issues that have even been let through. I thought it was decided there would be no meatpuppet striking, especially for such a little thing like this. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 22:47, 7 July 2009 (BST)

So i cant vote? please ciberbob... i think you cant vote for me ...and if i want to vote i can vote no? meat pupeting is because i am on CAPD¨?no? my Sig please i am a MPD member too...and there i used to teach new player to read that guide...why? because need to remember is a game but still we can have respect for others...So say what you want but my vote is my vote..have respect for me...i respect you..--(x)AlvaromesaTalk | Bacardi |MPD | Malton Public Radio 23:13, 7 July 2009 (BST)

It's all good, thank you alvaro for voting your mind. It sucks that such drama would unfold as a result of that. For any interested parties, I've defended my actions on User_talk:Cyberbob240#Garr_Knock_it_off. With this, the matter is resolved for me, regardless of how the vote goes. In the end, the fact that 22 people have registered their opinion of civility is quite positive. I hope to someday have a better understanding of the confounding and frustrating maze of unwritten rules and precedents that surface on the wiki from time to time. --GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 00:30, 8 July 2009 (BST)
yes...subverting democracy is a pretty hard thing to get a handle on i agree --Cyberbob 01:28, 8 July 2009 (BST)
What? Advising us to read something we are interested in, so we could vote if we agree, is subverting democracy? That is idiotic. Giles did nothing wrong. --Sophie ◆◆◆ CAPD 01:42, 8 July 2009 (BST)

I've been archiving a few suburb News posts, and I've arrived at a conundrum. I've archived the whole month of June for most suburbs, but not deleted posts under a month old. Is this correct? Or should I be deleting the whole month?--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 17:56, 14 July 2009 (BST)

While we're at it, what do I do if the last post on a page is more than a month old? Do I leave it, or put some snazzy line saying "There is no recent news for this suburb. Go to the archive, indicated here." --Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:00, 14 July 2009 (BST)
There isn't a rule of thumb, but for the first problem, generally you just archive the whole month regardless of whether it's over a month old or not. Especially at this time of month, where it usually doesn't matter. For the second problem, just get rid of all the old news and add that notice, probably saying There is no recent news for this suburb. News older than 1st July 2009 can be found in the archive. The given month in a notice like this won't need an update because anyone who adds to the news will delete it anyway, but otherwise people will know just when the last news post was.

Actually, I don't know why I did it. It's like some weird force came over me. Anyway, as I'm nearly done, I'll come back to the pages where June remains, and I'll take it away, but for now I'll stop. I might end up doing it tomorrow.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:10, 14 July 2009 (BST)

Thanks for the welcome back - I don't know how long I'm going to be back, but being on the outside of the drama looking in makes it a whole lot easier to stomach and get back to work.

Historical use of Historical

History was made today when a historically large amount of history was revised so that future history for this historical idea will be different. As future history was changed in one way, and pending this historical votes passing, in another, the word "historical" itself and all of it's other tenses and uses were used a historical number of times. When historical members of the community were asked to comment on this historical day, a historical number of them didn't care at all. For this quasi -historical figure, I would just like to say I can't wait until this day and these writings are historical.--SirArgo Talk 18:33, 20 July 2009 (BST)

Quick Question

Can anything be done about This? I find it amusing, because the fellow who created it is long gone, and I've been a PKer for awhile. I'm just curious if it could be deleted or some such. It's not really fun when someone searches my username and comes up with that farce. Thanks for anything. -- THELORDGUNSLINGER 22:18, 20 July 2009 (BST)

Actually, yes it can be deleted. It's one of those one-off groups that don't go anywhere. Not to mention that it was an almost entire copy of the old kill Deus page, which has since changed. And not to mention that pudge was a griefer that the Demons (who Kill Deus was playing against, and in a good manner, at the time) nor the members of Deus liked him (if I'm not mistaken. I'm not sure about the Deus's, but I was a Demon at the time, so I know we didn't like him). It could easily be put up for deletions, hell, if you put it on SD as a crit one, I'd delete it myself. They even use the same image that Kill deus used, and the one they use on their template Template:Kill_Deus257.--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 22:39, 20 July 2009 (BST)
I've put it up for A/SD, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were sent to A/D, or even just rejected outright. Still, it could always be moved to a subpage of the user's namespace. We'll see how it goes. --ϑϑℜ 03:30, 21 July 2009 (BST)

It was entirely true. I'd say 70-80 percent of the survivors who are left spawned in a 20x20 area. The area was sufficiently underpopulated that we knew most survivors and zombies by name, and with GNR's help had an effective communication net up almost immediately. Smaller was better. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 16:08, 22 July 2009 (BST)

My signature is SUBST, so it pastes the code down onto the page manually every time I use it, whereas the {{SUBST:Nosubst|User:XXXX/sig}} means that it throws the template on the page instead. It's better for longer sigs. --ϑϑℜ 02:03, 25 July 2009 (BST)

The mysteriously disappearing page

I recently made a deletion request deletion request that was on course to pass. And then it got deleted. Before the 2 week deadline, and no one has owned up to it or said they deleted it.

My intelligence is so irrelevant to any of this because the fact is that I have at leased some sort of knowledge and experience on wikis that you obviously don't. And 3. The fact you made that deletion 3 hours early is not only irrelevant, but also proves that you'll always just be another sheep that herds the deletions section.

If you're going to nitpick me...

I'll be happy to nitpick you back. In reference to your statement: "I respect it. Unlike Giles, he had the decency to go against, rather than persistently complain and then vouch." I didn't persistently complain and then vouch. In fact, the precise order of my statements was - question, complaint, vouch, complaint.
Your pal,
--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 21:15, 31 July 2009 (BST)

Exactly. If all you are going to do is criticise him, then why not just go against? If your comment isn't supportive in any way, it doesn't say much for your vouch, and it's obvious you don't want to vouch, and if you do, it's near impossible to tell. You might want to add something decent on besides all the negativity or your vouch is more or less meaningless. --ϑϑ 01:51, 1 August 2009 (BST)
And you were hardly nitpicking, as I was hardly nitpicking you in my initial comment, because there is quite a bit that would have to be said about your a/pm vouch in the first place, if one were so inclined. The problems with it are so obvious, though, that there is no reason for me to go into it. Unnecessary arguments aren't in anyone's interests just now. --ϑϑ 02:05, 1 August 2009 (BST)

Wesnoth is pretty fresh but I burned out on it. Anyways. I don't see any problem with criticizing someone and still agreeing with them in other areas or seeing merit in their overall performance. Perhaps you interpret honest critique as a slap in the face but I don't and from what I gather SA didn't either. I said in my vote that SA is "honest and fair" and that's why I vouched.
Do you read my posts before you huff and puff or do you just look for one thing to disagree with?
After confronting SA and looking at their contributions, I do feel he/she is coming from a good place in their decision making, and to me that's the most important trait in a crat.

There is no civility policy on this wiki, they have every right to say what they are saying. The thing is, 90% of the abusing comments on the deletions votes were not personal attacks but only in response to the tameness of the deletions case. As for Read and co, they are shitstirrers and are looking for a reaction from their behaviour, your responsibility is to stop giving it to them.

As for DCC's comment on the open discussion, DCC notoriously swears a lot and it is 100% within his right.

Basically, as per Jed and Read, there's nothing the admin can do to help you or enforce your wishes. It isn't because we are bad sysops, or we like to see this happen, but because the structure of the wiki prevents us from having any authority in stopping user X saying user Y is gay. As for the 5 pillars, a majority of them don't apply to UDWiki at all, namely in this case the fact we don't have a Code of Conduct. The best you can do is to go to arbitration and request something that necessitates your wishes. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 05:43, 13 August 2009 (BST)

Urban dead has become boring now

I think it is due to the sameness that occurs over time. Nothing ever changes, it's just more of the same. Kill zombies, get killed by pkers, kill humans. It never changes. Do you agree is my question. Aka Paradox 01:55, 15 August 2009 (BST)

I've been playing for just over 2 years and at one point, yes, I thought the game had become boring. I think the game can only become boring if you expect too much from it. I won't go through a history lesson, but when I got bored with the game, I just tried new things. Being a brain rotted human, leading groups, travelling and organising games like manhunts. At the moment I'm with a couple of groups who co-ordinate over IRC and hence it has a fun, welcome, social point to it. When I found UD got boring I just played it more casually, and it worked that way. To play UD you have to be prepared to fight for something, and when a suburb is green and it's surrounding suburbs are as such, there isn't much to fight for, only to stay for. They aren't the same thing.
As for the balance of the game and its structure, I do think that something's wrong. A battle hasn't happened since Kevan introduced cade-blocking and de-centralised malls with the FAKs, which I don't like because I enjoyed being with a massive brethren fighting against the biggest horde there was to offer. Kevan's changed the game over time so it can serve more as a zombie apocalypse, which is great, except for the "apocalypse" part, which Malton is currently not. Survivors outnumber Zombies far too greatly and that's likely to never change in UD's current state.
Long story short: UD gets boring when survivors dominate 70% of the game over zombies. The game isn't boring when someone like The Dead trounce the place and make every single suburb a death zone, because then you have someone to truly fight against and a true goal to achieve. At the moment, it's a bit of a wank for survivors and it's been like it for a while. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 02:16, 15 August 2009 (BST)
I guess that means I do agree to some extent, but personally I don't find UD boring because I've gone to certain lengths to keep doing what makes me enjoy UD: fight back for suburbs with survivor groups in ravaged towns, and participate in manhunts with friends and other wiki users. You just have to find something Malton that keeps you coming back. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 02:16, 15 August 2009 (BST)
Thank you for that very honest answer. I honestly think though that it's the "standstill"ness of the game that makes it so different from what I imagined a MMORPG. If it helps you to understand what I mean try to imagine the movie Dawn of the Dead but with you being able to play in the entire city and there's *animation*. I don't want to click on a button and affect essentially nothing cause on a small scale like urban dead it feels like you are only playing with yourself and time is standing still. (no joke intended). I want to like see actual weapons and you aiming at the zombies who number in the hundred thousands as I helplessly try to barricade a mall or something. Can you feel that adrenaline from something so innovative? Aka Paradox 19:08, 15 August 2009 (BST)
Go get dead rising (i think thats its name) or some other zombie xbox game. This is a text based game, it doesn't try to be anything else. Look up text based MMORPG and you'll see theres heaps of them, they aren't everyones cup of tea so you can always play WoW if thats more up your alley.--xoxo 23:59, 15 August 2009 (BST)

If he was the first one to be promoted then you are absolutely right and I apoligize, I set up the A/RE page late at night and was fearful I would get some of the user rights logs a little wrong.

I've run the ips. A couple of them appear to be from the same area, possibly even the same person using a variable ip, but the addresses are different enough that we can't get them for sockpuppetry. Considering the similarities in the quality of their spelling and grammar, and the fact that they're all voting on the same awful suggestion, I would hazard a guess that some of them might be meatpuppets (i.e. the author asked his friends to come along and vote) but there's really nothing we can do about it.The General T Sys U!

Well, he lost, because the suggestion was spammed. But that doesn't stop him trying again with an even zanier suggestion.

Contribs 21:40, 20 August 2009 (BST)
If he tries again then I have no doubts whatsoever that it will be spamminated as well. While I do agree that some sort of policy limiting meatpuppetry would be a good idea, but I'm not sure it would be passed as because people wouldn't like the fact that it could restrict new users from voting. The suggestions system has it's own system for suggesting rules changes, etc. which is done through Category_talk:Suggestions#Suggestion_Discussion. Anyway, it appears boxy is more observant than I am and noticed further similarities in the typing patterns and on those grounds I've ruled vandalism.--The General T Sys U! P!

Why should I bother? The entire topic was on the bunnies talk page, it's just customary on this wiki to continue the conversation there. Personally, I couldn't give two shits whether you were serious or not, the very fact you made the statement at all is ludicrous, even as a joke. Anyone with a shred of common sense would have criticised DTangent when he announced the policy, not just sit back and then cry when he 'breaks' it. If you are so touchy about me taking this up with you on your talk page, there's a lesson to be learned in this and it is you should have taken up your frivolous matter on DTangent's talk page, not the Bunnies. Now you've screwed up and anything goes, so deal with it.
And if you want to continue this on a talk page, then so be it, make it personal, I had trifles with the policy more than you, but whatever. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 00:00, 24 August 2009 (BST)

Header Images

In some of the North-Eastern suburbs, I've seen some images, used alogn with the headers, such as AquaMonument.jpg, AquaInfo.jpg and AquaReviv.jpg. I think they give a nicer aesthetic feel to the page. I'd be willing to add them to the other suburbs, but ideally, I'd like to ask a sysops permission first, as it's a change to the overall format of the page. (Well, just adding an image, but still). What do you think?--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 14:39, 27 August 2009 (BST)

Sysops don't have any more say over the aesthetics or content (except NPOV) of pages than anyone else. The only reason you should feel the need to ask a sysop before doing something is if you think it might be taken as being vandalism, and the sort of thing you're looking to do is anything but. Cyberbob  Talk  14:59, 27 August 2009 (BST)
Thanks, well I'll get right to work on that then. I just didn't want an a/vb case or anything.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 15:01, 27 August 2009 (BST)
There's seriously honestly truly no need to be wary of being accused of vandalism, much less being "convicted" of it, when you're doing something so obviously in good faith. You do get the odd stupid case from numbskulls who don't bother to ask the person they're accusing about their actions beforehand, but those are a rarity.
BTW: Making A/VB cases doesn't have anything to do with being a sysop in any way shape or form. We do make the majority of them but that's because we - for the most part - tend to either be more active than most people or are simply a bit more alert. It doesn't bear any relation to our position at all. Cyberbob  Talk  15:09, 27 August 2009 (BST)
(sorry if I'm harping on a bit here but I really don't like that particular misconception - nothing against you or anything) Cyberbob  Talk  15:10, 27 August 2009 (BST)
No, I moreso asked a sysop because they have the power to vote, and being a sysop means that you're meant to ahve a better understanding of policy. I was wondering if it breached a policy I was unaware of. I've done the first 10 or so, and I'll continue with the rest another time. I should have finished it within the week. Then I'll start work on trying to get all suburb pages ordered in the same way.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 15:24, 27 August 2009 (BST)

Obviously replacing NEW ACCOUNT with your new username. To change your signature to say the name you want but link to your main account, make the new account that you want and then go to my preferences and change the "nickname" field to the name you want (for example, Dr Frank) and make sure that the "Raw signatures" box underneath it is unchecked, then save your preferences.

I'm so very confused. I wanted to use my old account, but since I couldn't access it I made this one, and am using it to use the old account. I just want to start using the old, inactive account. I hope there isn't a problem with that... --~Dr Frank (t) (DF) [P] (Sb) 04:39, 31 August 2009 (BST)
Ah, I see. Look, You should, in my opinion, just make an account called DrFrank or something that's similar and just make that your main account. What you're doing isn't technically wrong but it's just so confusing for users because The Second, on first inspection, is too discernible from Dr Frank it will just confuse users. It's basically up to you. However, it might be worth it to make a notice at the top of Dr Frank, just to say that you edit under the account of The Second, just so no one freaks out etc. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 04:55, 31 August 2009 (BST)

Game History

DanceDanceRevolution said:
  • make a subcategory of Category:Events that only has in-game events created by kevan eg. fog
    • and hence, make Snow!

The existing categories for game history, fictional backstory, actual news events, mega-impact player events and smaller scale player events is a fucked up as that list itself.

I had a half-hearted attempted at providing some reasonable order in my (on-going) category cleanup. Currently most everything comes under Category:History where I've had a stab at deciding what belongs where. Category:Events would be for game history such as sieges and basically anything players organized. Category:Fiction is the catch-all for anything that's basically creative writing. Generally backstory but some other stuff too. The history category itself I was planning to use to chuck the actual news updates and special happenings like April Fools, Halloween, etc, and maybe any articles that were reasonably NPOV on events that had a big in-game impact (Yahoomas, the goons, etc)

That said, I'm open to debate on all that. I didn't feel upto renaming/recategorizing most of that since they were well populated and whatnot. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 01:59, 3 September 2009 (BST)

Hmm. I always prefer using a category like Category:History as a portal category, say for Category:Events, Category:Fiction and perhaps.... Category:Developer Events (decent title TBA obviously), and then all that which is in Category:History and Category:Events can be sorted between those three.

No, don't feel like you're doing wrong because I love all the help I can get- and what you're doing isn't wrong because wiki's are designed to be like this- I just think that "Events" is an apt term to describe the player-run events. particularly because Kevan's are much rarer and perhaps deserve a category called maybe "Official Events".

Dakerstown Libraries for deletion

Dakerstown Libraries is up for Speedy Deletion. Where do I put it? On the deletions page, where I put Dakerstown Buildings a moment ago or directly to Speedy Deletions? If latter, where there exactly? Thanks. --Maps 15:20, 4 September 2009 (BST)

Just at the top of here (on A/SD) with a level 3 header. You aren't required to give a criterion as users usually can pick it anyway, just throw it on there and say the same thing as you said on A/D with Dakerstown Buildings. For future reference, once building location blocks have become unmerged, they become Criterion 1's for Speedy Deletion because all their content has since been copied to more relevant locations, so they don't need to go through the Deletions page.

This is what happens when I go away.

Laughing Boy decides he's going to have his own way with other groups. He creates Mall_Tour_2009/Map after group leadership have already decided to delete it. And then has the actual map deleted because he's apparently in charge.

The deletion breaks links and ruins the fact that the group is hosted entirely in category space as is legal and makes it easier to find things when linking etc.

Deleting it also caused breaks in template links, not that he appears to have considered this first.

Given that group leadership have the right to organise their pages as they see fit, and creating pages in the space of other groups or users has been voted vandalism previously, do we get a deletion of his version and an undeletion of the actual version? Or must there be drama? -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem! The Rogues Gallery!. <== DDR Approved Editor 20:28, 12 September 2009 (BST)

Fair enough. I was under the misinterpretation that undeletion required a vote.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:09, 12 September 2009 (BST)
He had to move the page manually because moving category pages is impossible. Having it as a category page was pretty stupid and I agree that it should've been moved. That said there does appear to be this pre-existing duplicate which appears to have been missed be everybody, so it seems like SDing the new page would rectify this.
On a related note, the first level headers of these 09 tour pages still need fixing for interfering with content outside the usual page area. It'd be nice to see something actually done about that. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 00:39, 13 September 2009 (BST)
Who asked for a move? No-one in the group. In owned userspace people and groups can create subpages as they see fit. What we have here is someone recreating a page leadership had deleted, and then having a perfectly legal page deleting and breaking links elsewhere. How hard is it for the sysop team to respect the rights of groups? -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge! Mischief! Mayhem!

It was an unused category, open to speedydeletion. What a stupid way to set up a group, putting it in the category space. This was always going to happen -- boxy talkteh rulz 03:03 13 September 2009 (BST)
The way the whole group was set up seems to have been done specifically to create namespace drama. It's clear that group pages and sub pages in the main namespace are owned pages, there is no need for groups on User pages or group sub-pages in the category namespace. Categories are deleted when no other pages are in the category, regardless of whether they are created by groups -- boxy talkteh rulz 03:05 13 September 2009 (BST)
People breaking templates and sysops supporting them. People creating pages in the group space and sysops supporting them when it's been ruled vandalism before. Sysops accusing me of creating drama when I was following the example set by two then sysops. A sysop managing to argue here when he hasn't ruled on the major misconduct case at hand, normal users can argue, they can't rule misconduct. The other sysop finding time to argue here and not actually do my protections.

It's very simple really, don't screw up the group's wiki-organisation, and random users won't have to come along and fix it for you.

"It's very simple really, don't screw up the group's wiki-organisation, and random users won't have to come along and fix it for you." As this page is the only one in question and you've said "fix it for you", I didn't create it, so they aren't fixing it for me. It also can't be a dupe, as the fucking leadership of the group already had the page he re-created deleted under owner privilege. He decided he was going to go against the express wishes of the owners of the page and bring back something they had removed. Also, still doesn't address why it went through this process and broke a template whilst no fucker noticed. It also doesn't explain why my protections still aren't done (oh you must not be one of those janitorial sysops...) or you can take the time to argue here and not consider the misconduct cases (so you aren't a ruling sysop either.... what do you actually do with the position?).

I'm sorry, Iscariot, sorry that you're such a tool. You created this mess when you organised the group this way. You created the original Category:Mall Tour 2009 page, that forced this sub page to become an unused category when someone else just tacked on the /MT09Map to the end like anyone would. It wouldn't be a problem if the page was in the proper place in the first place, in the main namespace. If you were really looking to help fix up the Mall Tour 2009 pages, you'd be fixing any links or inclusions that may be stuffed up, and making it easy for "the group leadership" to use without creating confusing and duplicate pages all over the wiki -- boxy talkteh rulz 07:18 13 September 2009 (BST)

As stupid as the whole thing may seem, it is a group project and if having it in its current incarnation is breaking links and inclusions then they have a right to want it reverted.

The linkages should have refixed themselves now the undeletion has occurred. Mall_Tour_2009/Map will need re-SDing using Fiffy's original wishes, it is also a dupe of the needed version.

Hi, I'm Drox and I'm new. I usually run around, updating building statuses and such. When I got to my usual pages at West Becktown, I got a "welcome newbie" message. It redirected me to the Project Mentor page and asked me to pick one. So, what do I do? - Droxisla 14:14, 16 September 2009 (BST)

Well, it depends what you want to do on the wiki. I see you've already gotten used to updating Danger Reports, but there's more to be found on the wiki, say, if you'd like to make/join an in-game group, or read UD's history, read about items/skills, or help maintain certain status reports (which you already do for buildings), then you're always welcome to hang around.

Lose the attitude before I treat you in the manner your requesting. You may feel that you're being here and my not makes my comments invalid but it doesn't. Just because I'm not here for every whiny cunt drama fest doesn't make my additions any less valid, especially when I'm commenting for valid reasons. So you're butthurt about something, get over it or come to me and actually bitch about it in a manner that actually has you not behaving like a royal cunt for no reason because, at this point, that's exactly what you're doing all over the wiki. I posted it on your talk page because that's direct to you and you get a notice and are obviously on, there's no throwing it in your face beyond saying lose the baseless attitude, the rest is "hey, look, this is relevant to my comment and why I posted to boxy and if you're going to continue in that discussion you should probably be aware of it" Sorry I didn't phrase it nice enough, I wasn't aware you were raging at me in general about stupid shit until your last ridiculous comment on A/M. --Karekmaps?! 14:20, 17 September 2009 (BST)
I never said anything you was saying was less valid. I said if you actually paid more attention to the events you were commenting on there would be less likelihood of stuffing it up, reasonable enough? Yeah, you're free to comment on my talk page but my preference is that we keep the disputes on one page for ease of reading for other users/ourselves later on. I have no further interest in pursuing this Karke, the only reason I had a bite was because a) you complained about no one 'going on' about Iscariot's signature, implying that we as sysop weren't doing their job, when I clearly had 'gone on' about it, hence the butthurt. Also, under my obligation to let the community have their say on A/M before archival is the only reason I had a go at you for prolonging the unnecessary and futile discussion about an admittedly preposterous (but dead) proposal, and then you claiming me that I am not doing my job, hence the further butthurt. I'm over it now. Arsehole, douche, ignorant, biased, bad sysop, whatever I am, I'm over the argument. Just happy Nubis' chapter is finally over and I couldn't care much about anything else we argued about.

To DDR, my sig wasn't bad faith. Being slightly annoying isn't bad faith. The way the Sysop team didnt give me one week to change it is bad faith. The way I was banned for increasing the amount of links to my user page and subpages and removing the amount of external links while decreasing the amount of characters in the link was bad faith.

And to Karek, I lol'd at you saying blah blah..."doesn't make my opinion any less valid". I think I remember you claiming that anyone who wasn't a sysop didn't have an opinion worth listening to. You said it on basically every medium I've ever corresponded with you. You made a big fuss about being elitist on IRC, remember?--CyberRead240 15:38, 17 September 2009 (BST)

I think you're confusing situational elitism and educated contributing. My addition on sysop stuff matters on the basis that I can legitimately talk on precedence and policy in a knowledgeable and correct manner. Being there when something happens isn't a viable limiter to user contribution when it doesn't limit the ability of the user to monitor the going ons of the issue/case/event, activity is not a measure of correctness. --Karekmaps?! 22:30, 17 September 2009 (BST)

I'm not sure. A large case is not likely to succeed because we are hesitant to rule on things we can't prove, namely actions that go far back that can't be proved via checkuser. Technically, once DCC is on A/VB, any one of us can call for a premature permaban vote, as per Nubis' own typical precedence established here, but despite the fact DCC has claimed multiple times to have been in control of Nubis account for over a year (eg. A/PM and Nub's talk page), I doubt you'll get the outcome you hoped for. Personally, now he's been demoted they've gone more or less inactive, which supports the theory that they are the same person (the buttons are gone now so he has no interest to come back), but at the same time, asking for more is a bit much. If you want to do the method which has more chance of succeeding, I'd suggest the first one. The team, myself included, has shown enough apathy in enforcing the second method that I wouldn't think your chances are high. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 02:42, 26 September 2009 (BST)

Hope you don't mind it being up there a few more days. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 23:36, 27 September 2009 (BST)

Barricade Plan Template -- District Version

Hey DDR. I've been working on a district version of the standard suburb barricade plan template. I have all the crazy linked coding set up (so that if you make a change to the suburb's plan it is reflected in the district plan automatically), but for some reason I'm still having some issues with uniform sizing of the suburbs within the district. I talked to Red Hawk One about it and he said you might have a better idea of how to go about fixing it.

I just spent the last couple hours playing with both the individual suburb width and height values and those in my tables, but both to nil effect. Hoping that maybe you can think of something I haven't, or that collective brainstorming will come to a solution. I'd love to set this up for all the districts in Malton, but not unless they can look good. All the work is in my Sandbox. Thanks in advance! --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 08:02, 29 September 2009 (BST)

Hmm. I looked at all the sandboxes, I think I understand what you mean... this is the issue, yes? The odd spaces and whatnot inbetween all the individual suburb inclusions? Does it mean that you'd like them all together without spaces inbetween? --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 08:34, 29 September 2009 (BST)
That's exactly what I'm looking for. Either so there is no space, or so there is minimal space. Either way, the varied sizes among all the suburbs is what is driving me crazy right now. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 07:21, 30 September 2009 (BST)
I think this one may be beyond me at the moment- It's over my head but regardless I'll give it a go after work tomorrow, but in the interest of getting it fixed as soon as possible I've contacted some of the better coders on the wiki, they'll definitely be able to do it for you, the only question is whether they'll come onto UDWiki soon enough to see it. We'll see. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 14:02, 30 September 2009 (BST)
I've been working on it since the beginning of 2009 to get this far, so I'm not in a big rush. But thanks for contacting other coding folks about it! --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 06:28, 1 October 2009 (BST)
