hi, just one question: when adding a comment to a Suggestion page, what teplate should i use so I have my name and current date there? could not find it anywhere

The Only reason I reference Isc and Thad, is that there's been no one better recently. --I'm not the Ross UDWiki needs, I'm the Ross it deserves. 12:09, 8 September 2012 (BST)

Yeah, not to react but that's no joke the only time I've heard Iscariot's name in at least a year. That was actually supposed to be the joke. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 12:45, 8 September 2012 (BST)
I figured. This place has gotten really undramatic lately by the looks of things. Somebody throw a coup. Linkthewindow  Talk  07:34, 9 September 2012 (BST)
Your observation is dead on. This is a very different wiki to the one we 'grew up' in. I'll say that, the the dead will return, I bet... A ZOMBIE ANT 07:49, 9 September 2012 (BST)
Not sure about that, the drama peaked around the whole Grim coup saga and has been steadily decreasing since. I've returned/lurked occasionally since I left, and it's become - and stayed - a lot less dramatic (which is good.) On an unrelated note, love reading my comments from three years ago. Linkthewindow  Talk  08:01, 9 September 2012 (BST)

At the near to the bottom of the section located here, obifirefighter has changed his name as an insult to mine. I proceded by changing what he put as "Leroy Stupids" after a message implying that it was myself doing the typing, back to obi. He then changed it back to "Leroy Stupids." Would this be considered impersonation on his account? --Leroy jankens 18:22, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Firstly, please use a permalink next time. Makes it a bit easier to track it. Anyway, it's a borerline case, but people have been warned over it previously. In future, you can use vandal banning (A/VB) for a quicker response (I'm not a sysop ;).) Linkthewindow  Talk  21:00, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you and...

I cant seem to get it too work! I cut and pasted it on to my user page but it didnt work, some script was still showing so I dont know what I did wrong! Also when I do get it to work cant i just delete that "mah sig and other stuffz" link I have right at the bottom of my page?--mo ヽ(´ー`)ノ MCM MOB DB 11:44, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Okay, that was my fault. Stupid code. I've fixed it now, and made it a template, so all you have to do is add {{User:Mightyoak/Navbar}} to the top of every page (and yes, you can delete the link.) Linkthewindow  Talk  11:51, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you link your a diamond! :-D --mo ヽ(´ー`)ノ MCM MOB DB 12:23, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


Here's a question for you.

"How many of last years peer reviewed suggestions went through developing suggestions?"

"How many peer reviewed suggestions didn't go though developing suggestions?

--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 21:15, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Let me guess;
All of them?
Anyway, I'll add something like that to my table. Could just show newbies the awesome power of D:S ;P.

-- Linkthewindow  Talk  21:17, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

I believe its about 66% suggestions that went through DS.

And about 10% of those that didn't go through DS.--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 21:23, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, we'll know for sure this year! Linkthewindow  Talk  21:32, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Hah! It was me being sneaky. If someone had said "RE you'd be a terrible sysop" Id never have run. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 08:41, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Good idea ;P. Linkthewindow  Talk  08:42, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Help needed

I'm hoping that you can help or know who I can contact to help out with this. The List_of_Revivification_Points page seems to be "messed up" for lack of a better term. I'm thinking its the formatting or something. Can you take a look or recommend who I can speak to about this? Thanks! ---Lois Millard 17:04, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Fixed. Template:RevivePointHeader was the culprit.--  AHLGTG 17:58, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Ok, then! Thanks! --Lois Millard 19:16, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
Damn those Gnomes. Always faster on the draw then regular users. I've been seeing problems with that template on other pages too, but I thought it was just locally messed-up formatting :|. Linkthewindow  Talk  21:48, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Crit 1's

You really need to expand your time frame on the Crit 1's. I suggest only submitting pages that are 6 months old or older. Not everyone is on the wiki everyday and maybe they are still deciding on what exactly they want on the page. It's not going to hurt anything to let them sit for a bit. Besides, not every group wants a huge wiki page.--– Nubis NWO 17:03, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Your page

Is 1280 really considered low res? :( -- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 00:41, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Relative to 1680*1050 :P. Are you using 1280? Linkthewindow  Talk  00:43, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
It's the appropriate one for my monitor, so yesh.-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 00:49, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

p Surely you've comleted the radio massacre thing?

And sprint did go through developing suggestion. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:43, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

We completed the radio massacre about a month ago. Why?
Thanks. I must have filed the report before he moved across the text. Linkthewindow  Talk  11:45, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Because on your project page it says its ongoing. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:50, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, fixed now. Thanks for pointing that out, I always forget about that page ;(. Linkthewindow  Talk  11:52, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
So whats the next project? Want to leave some feed back on UDWiki talk:Projects/A Tale of Undead Cities ? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:53, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm currently going through and flagging inactive (no edits for six months, nothing on the stat page,) groups inactive with this template, but I'll have a look at that. Linkthewindow  Talk  11:54, 18 January 2009 (UTC)


You may need to make your shoutbox bigger, its hard to navigate through on your main page. Either that or you should archive/purge weekly, in my opinion. Liberty 15:49, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

I'll do a purge soon. Linkthewindow  Talk  00:21, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I concur. Also "Got stuff to do in real life. I'll still be around, but not insanely active.", lol.--xoxo 00:13, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Buda's journal

Hi. Thanks for offering to help me out. I'll take the second option please - 'Journal: The Travels of Buda'. Thanks again. Buda Hilton 19/01/09 15:05(GMT).

No worries :). Linkthewindow  Talk  15:08, 19 January 2009 (UTC)


Im glad you liked my (very amaturish) design... I'm new to all this wiki stuff and it was even hard for me to reply to you. Your first message I did not understand, so if you could clear that up for me I would be very happy. BTW I first thought I messed up the wiki page when I added it so I got scared >.<. But if you could tell me how to resize it that would be great. I have a little thing I want to add to it that needs your help. Please respond and also I was wondering if we could have a chat through AIM or any of those other chat sites. --- Lt Marzzarella

Heh :). Firstly, I think you might be talking about Hagnat, who lives here, so if that,s what you want, just click there. Now, as for resizing images:
[[Image.png|Ypx]] (where Y is the number of pixels,) should do the trick. By the way, please sign with four tides ~~~~. Thanks! Linkthewindow  Talk  21:45, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Your answers

Cheers for the quick response! You can wiki-stalk me any time you'd like :P -- Peter McGrady  FoD 04:11, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Just found you in-game. Didn't know you were MCM - probably a good thing I didn't kill you in our strike at the Academy a little while ago, or you might not be as helpful :P -- Peter McGrady  FoD 11:31, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry about it. There's a reason I keep any group links out of my sig ;). Heck, next time I see you prepare to be slapped with a newspaper! Linkthewindow  Talk  11:35, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Nope, I'm pretty good for now. Cheers! -- Peter McGrady  FoD 11:49, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Damn, you're fast! (And look, I'll remember to sign this one) -- Peter McGrady  FoD 05:20, 21 January 2009 (UTC)


Indeed. Even if I got interested because one of the NecroNet images was breaking a page.. and now I have a brand new reason to spend more time on this wiki ;).

Oh, what did you think of the AZS? Did you enjoy our Tequila and Pie? --Janus talk 13:35, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Heh. We should form "Wiki Addicts Anonymous" :P. I've done some uploading previously, it's a good service, just needs a few more active contributors.
And, yes, I did, although I must say, there is something about the cookies back at St. George's :). Linkthewindow  Talk  13:44, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Ahah, we could create that, yeah. Guess a lot of people would join.
You know, we should write an article about the food habits of the people in Malton.. (cookies, pie, cake).. :P --Janus talk 14:09, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

the page Team_Zombie_Hardcore/PhantomXombie can be deleted. Sorry about that, didn't even realize it existed. --Dhavid Grohl 19:58, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Useless pages

Im aware of the useless pages ill put them up for deletion when im done with them was just trying to solve a problem! im having trouble getting a page to format properly, could u take a look at it as u seem to know what ur doing  :) --Nimrod1 21:01, 26 January 2009 (UTC) Basically the side bar ive made on the left is preventing a main body of text to be placed beside it and im really not sure how to fix it :( --Nimrod1 23:18, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

please, a newbie needs help with a new page

hi (amazing user page!) First of all excuse my bad english. It's the first time that i create a page in this wiki. I've read the help page but i don't know if i've broken policies or etiquettes creating this NT Mantra. I also have no idea if i can link it freely in the wiki or if i have to flag it somehow or if it has to be voted(???). Suggestions? Thanks a Lot! --MamaMantis 12:58, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

*Chuckles* I just saw that page and commented on it :). Since it's not a page made in bad faith, it's fine (bad faith=vandalism.) There's no limit on linkage-just be careful not to spam links everywhere (that annoys people, obviously.) You might want to put a link on any NecroTechs that use the strategy, or any groups (ask with them first if you aren't a member.) Or perhaps create a template? Linkthewindow  Talk  13:02, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
woah! you did it just before i wrote this on you user page. Better than flash gordon. I'll talk about the strategy and link it in game to speed up improvements and then i'll create the template. Thanks --MamaMantis 13:18, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Grayside Civil War

This was taken right before hostilities broke out. At the time we assumed that SNAKEHOUND had invited the Philosophe Knights into the suburb. We later discovered that a SNAKEHOUND member was in fact the victim of the Philosophe Knights member.File:Pker 11 copy.jpg I'll also ask around to see if anyone else has anything else, they should..

Being bored

I hope to get it done and ready today. I can always make a second template without the link, like I did to {{UDBox2}}.

User Page

Even using my Extendo-wideTM monitor (1440x900), it's still a little short on room. Since the most common resolution is still 1024x768 (generally about half the internet these days), you're probably just creating a clutter-storm for most people. Even those who are ahead of the curve on 1280x1024 (about a third) are not gonna have much luck. Just saying. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 16:37, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi there!

Hey, Link, I've been attempting to fix up my user page and wondered if you could help me out, since you seem to be rather skilled at the whole coding thing, unlike myself. Anyway, as you can see, my user page currently has two blocks of text, one yellow text on green backdrop and one green text on yellow backdrop, and these two blocks are one on top of the other. I want them to be stacked side by side; in other words, to make the rows into columns. Do you know how to do this? --Pestolence(talk) 01:31, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Try something like this:
{| style=code yada yada align="center" somethingsuch
|style=left side code| content || style=right side code| content

--  AHLGTG 01:36, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Wow! Thanks, it's working now! Thanks for the help, Gnome (thanks to you too, Link, I'm sure you would have done just as well if Gnome weren't lurking at this particular moment.) --Pestolence(talk) 01:44, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
