Welcome to my Talk

Hi! Just a few ground rules.

  • Please put newer entries at the top of the relevant section.
  • If you need to create your own section for some strange reason, place it at the top as well and mind the headings.
  • The Drama Llama has not been necessary so far, I want to keep it that way.
  • If I came to your talk page, let's keep the conversation there. If you came here, this is where I will respond.

Thanks! ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 01:35, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

I ended up on your page today somehow and was motivated to make mine a tad bit better. That has been the second time you have motivated me to do better so I just wanted to say thanks.--ZIPO/Talk/◆◆/CAPD 15:05, 16 May 2009 (BST)

The Big Prick is coming to the Four Corners (Southwest)

Anything we need to know while we visit your lovely area? Asheets 19:27, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

It's pretty quiet around the area right now; the Mall Tour passed through a couple weeks back but there are only about 10 zeds or so. I'd also ask that you don't write over any graffiti starting "Liz sez" or any of the Blackwatch tags. Beyond that, nothing special. Welcome! Let me know if there's anything I can do to help out! ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 19:50, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Animated NecroWatch Scans

Extropymine... since you're the one that recruited me for NecroWatch, I'm coming to YOU with a problem... I'm trying something new with the Dewes NT scan... specifically, since they're anticipating an attack, I'm trying to do hourly NecroNet scans and post them. But, not just post new ones, animate the old ones so you can see a progression of what happens. Obviously, I can't spend forever on it, so it won't be updated overnight or when I'm gone, but... does this count as multiple scans? Or one scan for the list? I don't want to run up the tab just because, nor open a hole for people to get their awards, but I'm curious what official policy would be. Please advise here! via my talk page (or here, if need be.) --BLusk 20:55, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Heya, BLusk! Well, the official answer to your question is "every scan that is significantly different from the previous scan counts." Which is to say, we don't want people taking a scan every 10 minutes just to rack up their count, but then again, a scan every 10 minutes during a major siege might be useful and important! It's a judgment call on the part of the NTechnician. If you take a scan an hour for a day, and nothing much happens, then use your best judgment-- award yourself 3 or 4 scans, since a scan every 6 hours is certainly an acceptable rate. However, if your 24 scans clearly show a horde move in and start acting? Heck, count them! Oh, and if that happens, you should also post up the animated scan on the talk page cause I bet people would love to watch it!
Now, the other thing I'll mention to you is that (as you probably know), normal NT Scans are .png files. You've probably already changed the scan template for your animated .gif so it will display properly. But when you're done with this project, remember to change it back to .png so it doesn't confuse the next NTech who does a scan there.
Good luck with this! It sounds like a cool idea! ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 06:37, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the approval, and I'll be sure to change it back when all is said and done. It seems like a fun way to make useful information out of snapshots in time. BLusk 14:57, 22 March 2009 (UTC)


Hello Extropymine ... can i ask you some help to make a better userpage?.ok thanks--(x)AlvaromesaTalk | Bacardi |MPD | Malton Public Radio 20:16, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi again! Sure, I can sure try. What sorts of things were you interested in trying out? Here are a few of my favorite Userpages:
Do any of those pages look good to you? ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 21:21, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
User:Iscariot is cool...but i want to find some to put my different character of your userpage.--(x)AlvaromesaTalk | Bacardi |MPD | Malton Public Radio 00:30, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, I tell you what. Go ahead and tell me the character names, and find a nice picture to represent each one, and I would be more than happy to set up pages for them to get you started. I can also make you a character bar to display on your main user page. ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 00:35, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

OK... my characters are Lt Mesa(Mpd image or my banner) Adrian mesa(C.A.P.D) and alvaromesa(fuerza latina) you can put simple imagges and after that i edit to put my images problem?--(x)AlvaromesaTalk | Bacardi |MPD | Malton Public Radio 10:46, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

All right, I just made a big ol' edit to your user page. If you like it, just play around with the images and text until it's what you want. If you don't like it, roll it back. ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 19:27, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

wow...fantastic...really thanks a lot..thanks fot the contribution Extropyme .. i really love it!.--(x)AlvaromesaTalk | Bacardi |MPD | Malton Public Radio 22:41, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

You're welcome! The stuff you still need to do is go through that and do things like add links to your character profiles and the date you first started playing, things like that. You also may want to re-format your headings and such, but that's up to you! ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 23:42, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Project Necrowatch

Thanks for the post regarding joining the NW project. I believe I have followed all relevant steps to join and I have posted up my first report on the Maver Building, Edgecombe. Could you confirm for me that all is in order and I haven't missed or forgotten anything that I should be doing. There is an awful lot to read and I'm on a lunch break. I think I did it all right but if you can come back to me and let me know I would appreciate it. I get to add a snazzy NW to my Sig just like yours? ^_^ ƦedeyeϧyϮ MDK | NW 12:30, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

The Maver Building looks great, and your join post on Talk:NecroWatch is just fine. Mobius will add you to the membership roster, and then you can either update your own running NT count, or you can just go about your merry business and Mobius will do it every few days during his regular maintenance. And of course, you can put anything you like into your signature! Welcome aboard! ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 15:25, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm sorry, you lost me a little. What exactly have I done? ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 02:45, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, this is regarding suggestion voting. Only the creator of a current suggestion may reply to votes on it, and only the original voter may reply to that. this is not on, it clutters everything. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 03:07, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh, yes-- understood. Thanks for the heads' up. I thought you were referring to one of my more recent votes, and I was worried since I've been trying to reign myself in over the last couple weeks. Thanks for coming by to mention it to me-- I appreciate the civility of a note on a talk page as opposed to immediately running to vandal banning, as I see some other users do every day for every imagined offense. ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 03:22, 5 March 2009 (UTC)


Hello, I am Citizen VI of the Philosophe Knights, and also Mr. Valere Lenoir while working with the NecroWatch. I've been taking note of your scanning efforts while completing a scan run of South-West Malton, and, seeing your classy wiki page, thought I'd drop by to say hello. I generally represent the Philosophe Knights, being a senior member of our leading body, but I come here by a personal vocation, as a potential friend, so if you are not appreciative of the more... esoteric methods of pædagogy I assure you: you need come no closer than you are. I'm greatly impressed by your work with the Four Corners, and when Valere has graduated from the College of Medicine, in which he will shortly enroll, I'd love to come down and help out in any way I can. I have a number of scientific experiments I intend to run, but there's no reason I can't do them in any particular location. Anyway, it's great to see someone as creative and driven as you, and I'm glad to made your acquaintance. -- CITIZEN VI 01:14, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, VI. I'm already an admirer of the Knights, who bring an amount of class to the pvp game that many other groups lack. It was actually Valere's "NT Progress Map" that got me started thinking about a template NecroWatch could use for its members, but unfortunately yours is just an uploaded image, so I had to use something a little more crude. I've been taking more and more baby-steps here on the Wiki, having learned very quickly about the remarkable amount of drama that gets flung about, but I've been getting more comfortable. Thank you for stopping by, and your friendship is warmly welcomed. ~ extropymine Talk | NW | 4Corners 01:24, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
