Arbies

Don't know if chev knows the procedure. Perhaps a message telling him you're ready to proceed? Oh his talk page? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 17:47, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Any questions? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 19:36, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Owsleybank groups

Hallo Maverick, with regard to your spring clean of groups: Rotter's Relief is actually still active in Owsleybank (even though we are mostly bleeding at this stage). Do you require a more formal notice? --Mummelmann 12:48, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Nope, this is good enough. I will note it that Rotter's Relief is still active. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 06:19, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Checking in....

I noticed Rotters Relief posted above, and you made them active.... I was hoping to confirm EVIL,... not sure if you knew or not,... but the only response required was on the talk pages. Any who,... we're still active. -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 04:24, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Don't worry that you haven't been confirmed yet, Poodle. We go back through and check all of the talk pages before we remove anyone. Confirming you early just saves us a little time later (at the expense of some time now, of course). Aichon 06:31, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
Just checking in is all.... I thought it to be moving faster elsewhere,... and wanted to make sure we weren't missed... that said, thanks to all involved. -Poodle of DoomM! Fear is only as deep as the mind will allow it be.T 04:37, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Nope, you haven't been missed. It's just a slow process. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 05:30, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Already responded

on the forum......--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 10:07, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Ah, see now if I wasn't at work I'd have all the tabs open and would have noticed... --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 10:21, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
Got a crazy new 404 plan. Check the forum. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 21:09, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

We are still active in Dakerstown

FUACK is still alive and well. We are a small group so we may be hard to find if you're looking for us, but we're here. In the future, please check in with us at our forum before removing us from the active group listing. Egil 03:24, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

A request was posted on your group's talk page that you confirm your activity. That same request was also posted on hundreds of other groups' talk pages at the same time as part of a semi-annual project to clean up the group listings for each suburb. Maverick was responsible for your suburb's groups, but there are only about a half dozen of us handling the project, and we don't have the resources to track down every single group listed in every single suburb, especially since the vast majority of the ones we remove are legitimately gone and no longer active.
Maverick didn't remove your group mistakenly or because you're a small group and he couldn't find you in-game. He removed FUACK, just as he removed dozens of other groups across the city, because they failed to respond to the request that they confirm their activity. In the future, if you'd like to avoid this, the only way to do so is to check your group's talk page at least once every two weeks. The next time this project comes around, there's no guarantee that Maverick will be the one checking your suburb anyway, so that's the only way to be sure. Aichon 04:00, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
My mistake. I admit I'm not familiar with the politics of such things as this. My apologies, Maverick. Most of our members are not active on the wiki, and I check it only rarely. I shall keep an eye on our group page in the future. Egil 06:11, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
The next time we do the cleanup probably won't be until next year anyway, so you'll be fine for a good long while. Worst case scenario is that you get removed again and just have to re-add yourselves, which only takes a minute or two, thankfully. Anyway, sorry for the mix-up on our end as well. We tried to notify people in more ways this time around than we have in the past, but some active groups always slip through the cracks regardless. Aichon 07:26, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Umm... what Aichon said. Thanks for watching my talk page while I took the weekend off. =D --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 09:28, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Hey

Thanks for telling me, I've been busy trying to level up and find a surburb to work in. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BlackRider (talkcontribs) at an unknown time.

No problem. We're almost always in the same five suburbs, so you always know where you can find us. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 09:50, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Districts

I anticipate a lot of district pages are going to be made soon. For my sake, I'm gonna just give you a heads up to categorise them as you go (since I assume a lot of the base coding is just copy and pasted anyway) to make my job here a little smoother. -- 12:27, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Yep, that will be the case. Just sticking with the one district page until we get a nice pretty format for it though. So you might not even see the other district pages up for a few weeks yet. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 19:40, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

DistrictForm2

Your page was unlinked, so i linked it here.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 13:11, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

10mfh

10mfh are still active in Molebank. Thanks for taking on the cleanup effort, Lord knows its needed from time to time and there aren't many willing to put the time.

Just a suggestion though, if a group has a forum listed it would be particularly polite to follow through to it and see if there's any activity there, or maybe even drop by and say hello (as for us, we love to welcome guests and there's always a good cup of tea waiting) before signing the death certificate. The 10mfh forum is VERY active and the two or three clicks it would have taken to verify that would have been a lot less effort than the changes you implemented took you to do and certainly for us in reverting them back. Even more so since my HTML/Wiki skills border on the laughable. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Cs lewis (talkcontribs) at an unknown time.

Hey. I know I'm not Mav, but I think I can explain. The Great Suburb group massacre took place on all 100 suburbs, so taking the time to register on every group's forum would've taken considerably more time and effort.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 17:36, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
To follow up on what Yonnua said (and to reference Aichon a little further up my page), it's the same policy for every group listed in every suburb. We realize that not every group checks the wiki that often, even if they are very active in-game or on their forums. That's why we give two weeks to respond and confirm activity. With all the groups that need to be verified, looking for them off the wiki just creates much more hassle and involves a lot more time than it is worth. But the nice thing is that in situations like yours, it's a very easy fix to simply add your group back to whichever suburbs you were removed from. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 22:03, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Chidley Row Fire Crew

If that offer of an alliance with the Order of the Black Rose is still open, We accept. And would you communicate with us about the status of the 'necro tech' your group maintains. We are dealing with an infestation and are looking for other ways of dealing with the problems other than with the 'AX'. All of the 'radios' in the area have been destroyed so post your reply on Talk:Chidley_Row_Fire_CrewSigning off --Armen Hammer 10:06, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Hard Knock Life

Look likes they may drop off the stats page soon. Want to try a 404 style move on them? They seem to be our type of people. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:24, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

They most certainly do. I'll try to get in touch with them and put the offer out there. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 19:08, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Forum issue

How can people make revive requests if they have to be pre approved? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 12:15, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Already resolved. Guest account; information in the revive request thread, which can be viewed by people even who are not logged in. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 20:59, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Bowring Blackwatch

right on dude, never checked that discussion section. Sadly I see a fair amount of reaching out we've completely, though not deliberately, ignored. Oh well, we're here on the border of Old Arkham and Spicer Hills, like we have since '05 or '06 doin' our pro survivor thing. no revenge kills without a group vote, negotiations ... like that. So, come on down and bring some love ... --Akdov 00:12, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

It happens. In all likelihood if Old Arkham or Spicer Hills is running red, you might see me down there with the members of 404. Take care until then. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 03:23, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Template,district.

Mind If I write some flavour on the rose district page you've created? its a bit bare. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 09:49, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Yes please! I'm still playing around with the template itself to make the sidebar prettier right now, so I haven't paid any attention to the actual content on the actual district page. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 09:51, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
District SW-2 Thoughts? I have a few ideas about the page, why is the RADIO header in capitals? Also, with the complete lack of NT's and few FD's, it may be wise to go for a 3 width trp list and lose the bulletin boards? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 10:23, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
I wasn't sure, although I figured a mention somewhere about Abigale's Flower Shop or something flavourful to compliment the name of the district. The RADIO header is just something I borrowed from Mornington's page, and I figured we could add in any other notable frequencies (if any). As far as the TRP list, I've already decided to remove that entirely, I just haven't settled on what to replace it with just yet. Perhaps something akin to the "Key Buildings" bit that is normally in the suburb sidebars as Aichon suggested. No idea yet. Thoughts for tomorrow, unless you think of something before I do. --10:31, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, its just the capitilisation of RADIO I didn't like, none of the other headers are in capitals. ill mess around with some code later today. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 10:34, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Altered the background colour on one of the side pieces, do you think it looks better the same colour as the background?--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 13:42, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
It looks fine for the mast status but the EMR seems harder to read that way. I was trying to get it to look more like the suburb pages but gave up after an hour last night. I'll try again tomorrow. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 20:58, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Tried an alternative TRP setup. What you think? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 21:30, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
I like it. Particularly because one can easily identify where all the buildings are with the links. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 21:54, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

group page formating and styles

hey, just wondering who did your group page formats and what not. we're working on spruicing the place up a bit with a colour scheme, and I thought you might be able to point me in the direction of some coding. Jack S13 T! PC 16:03, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

I borrowed most of the OBR's from the Burchell Arms Regulars, with some changes to suit my liking. I would also look to the Help page in the sidebar for generic coding help. But if you hit a roadblock you can let me know and I'll help you out or at least point you in the direction of others who can. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 21:06, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank you!

You just revived my brain rotted Death cultist! Have fun watching your barricades crumble... FROM THE INSIDE! Mwahahahahahahahahahaha!--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 13:02, 15 April 2010 (BST)

Sometimes that is the price that must be paid to bring back an NT in a red suburb. So be it! --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 19:45, 15 April 2010 (BST)
I look forward to attempting to take it down again.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:18, 15 April 2010 (BST)
Is yonnua eating us? Excitement! --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 21:28, 15 April 2010 (BST)
Wait, who are you? (As in which alt.)--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:33, 15 April 2010 (BST)
If only there was a page listing all my favourite alts. Perhaps in my user space. I'll give you a clue. He's the one vibrating. Mister essa? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:47, 15 April 2010 (BST)
That would be the one. However, after looking through your characters, I can't seem to work out which one it is... :/--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:59, 15 April 2010 (BST)
Ah. Now that my IP limit has reset, I've got it, Little Chris.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 00:10, 16 April 2010 (BST)
Excellent. Good tussling! --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 09:15, 16 April 2010 (BST)

Tollyton

Sorry I haven't gotten round to coming yet, I'm trying to help Tollyton, it's been hit recently, building a group of survivors up, if you can help, please message me. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BlackRider (talkcontribs) 05:09, 21 April 2010.

Tollyton is pretty far outside the range of the OBR's influence, and 404 is rather busy in South Blythville at the moment, so I am afraid we are unable to help. But we'll be around, so get here when you can. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 12:17, 21 April 2010 (BST)
Tollyton Gosh darn it. You got any tips, like which buildings should be targetted for reconstruction asap, etc? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BlackRider (talkcontribs) 12:28, 21 April 2010.
For Tollyton I would start with the NT and then work north to the hospitals and libraries. You also have to remember that you're right by RRF stomping grounds, so things aren't likely to ever be very safe over there. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 20:47, 21 April 2010 (BST)
Already got hospital, just got junkyard, trying to get a group to get the mall, if we suceed i'll tell y'all. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BlackRider (talkcontribs) 20:50, 21 April 2010.

Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 12:57, 3 May 2010 (BST)

What, are you depressed that South Blythville is no longer a red suburb? :P --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 19:35, 3 May 2010 (BST)
Considering you killed me and threw me outside, yes.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 19:40, 3 May 2010 (BST)
Well that's what happens when rotten little zombies sleep away from an NT. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 01:46, 4 May 2010 (BST)

Dont thank me

Thank yourself. It will make you a better survivor. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 19:17, 2 June 2010 (BST)

Well it's not the first zombie character I've had. But it will be the first zombie I will try to actively involve in the zombie meta-game. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 23:52, 2 June 2010 (BST)


Would like to discuss Earletown Cade Plan

It seems like you might be the one who went to the trouble of working on Earletowns Cade plan. Would you care to discuss? I have an Alt in the Earletown Rangers and we would like to go to a more VSB++ driven scheme. Thoughts?--Belisarius17 03:47, 6 June 2010 (BST)

Nope, I have not done any work on Earletown's barricade plan. I have simply upgraded it to the new template. If you want to make changes to the plan, I would advise using the Earletown Barricade Plan talk page and give some time for other survivors in the area to pitch in information. Preferably even contacting other local groups so everyone agrees on the plan. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 04:56, 6 June 2010 (BST)

District SW-2/Minimap

ORPHAN.jpg Orphaned Page
The following page(s) were orphaned, meaning they weren't linked from any other page on UDWiki. For house-keeping's sake, we are adding the link onto the relevant talk page. If you don't want the pages anymore just post them on the Deletions Page. You aren't required to do anything, but we'd appreciate if it you kept the link on any one of your pages.

Please note that the link provided below will not remove the page from Orphaned Pages, so you'll still need to manually make a link for us. Thank you.

Your page, District SW-2/Minimap, was not linked to on the wiki. This message is just to provide a link for it and clear it from our orphanage. --Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 20:39, 15 June 2010 (BST)

I'm assuming this is probably because of evolving changes to the district page. I might put this up for deletion soon if that is the case. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 07:19, 16 June 2010 (BST)

Malton Manhunt/Axe Hack's Manhunt 3

This is a reminder to you, and all the other contestants, that AHMH3 begins in 5 days as of this post. The playing area is the top 16 suburbs in a 4x4 formation on the Northwest of the map. You are expected to be in the area at the start of the Manhunt, so if you're not already in the area, get moving! And happy hunting to you. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 16:29, 26 June 2010 (BST)

policy discussion

DDR made a mistake when writing the policy - he included Template:Inactive (which is a template for inactive sysops,) instead of Template:InactiveGroup (which is a template for inactive groups.) To keep within the rules, if/when he changes the link, he'll need permission of all voters. So I decided I would seek that now.

Basically, are you alright with the link being changed? Linkthewindow  Talk  09:17, 16 July 2010 (BST)

Most certainly. I read that on DDR's talk page as well. So in way more words than needed, I am okay with the link being changed so that it is correct. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 09:19, 16 July 2010 (BST)
Thanks. It's an understandable oversight on his part, and I don't blame him. It's just that if he changed it without seeking the permission of those who voted, he will be decapitated by wikilawyers (and we don't want that...) Linkthewindow  Talk  09:21, 16 July 2010 (BST)
No decap without proper pomp and circumstance! --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 09:33, 16 July 2010 (BST)
Thank you v much for noting that, I just guessed the template and saw the blue link and thought everything was dandy :( -- 09:36, 16 July 2010 (BST)

So...

404 is back up and active again? Linkthewindow  Talk  04:01, 18 July 2010 (BST)

They never left. They merged with the Order of the Black Rose when they were down to just three active members, and grown back since then. A large burst recently with Fiffy and a number of the old classics coming back. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 06:49, 20 July 2010 (BST)

District SE-4

Just wanted to thank you for making the district page. Obviously we're still looking for more aesthetically pleasing ways to display some parts of it **coughTRPtemplatecough** so if you think of any creative ways of doing so, please let me know. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 09:54, 22 July 2010 (BST)

What I really want is a way to extract the groups from the suburb group templates, and inject it into a template for the groups of the whole district. But for now, I think the priority is convincing the minimaps that warehouses and junkyards are actually buildings. --VVV RPGMBCWS 22:01, 22 July 2010 (BST)
I'll look into it but there's probably a way of just setting up a table with fields for each suburb in the district, and templating the group listings into it, albeit smaller. For instance, if you look at {{Millen Hills Groups}} you'll see there's no actual limit to the size of the template, it's just forced smaller by the table it's on on the surburb page - similar to how {{RDDsidenav}} is not contrained width-wise, but on the pages it's included on (such as this or this), it's forced into the size of the cell it's in. By building a nice-looking table you could have smaller versions of the group listing templates in those, using the overall table to force the sizes to fit. Nothing to be done! 22:22, 22 July 2010 (BST)

Sig

You'll need to reduce the size of your sig's PK mask image. There is a policy stating that sig images can be no more than 14px high. ie. PKM.GIF instead of PKM.GIF -- boxy talkteh rulz 21:39 25 July 2010 (BST)

Thank'ee -- boxy talkteh rulz 12:20 26 July 2010 (BST)

Manhunt

You were quite good in AHMH3, and so I'm going to invite you to join the Discosaurs in the EVIL manhunt, either as a guest on the team or as a full member; whatever you'd like. You interested?--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 22:47, 7 August 2010 (BST)

I would, but I am afraid that Lord Pendragon really needs to put on a fresh mask and go back to educating all the ignorant fools in Malton. Perhaps next time. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 07:42, 10 August 2010 (BST)
What about the awesome Manhunt All-Stars? Eh? Eh? :D -- 08:01, 10 August 2010 (BST)
Pretty much as above, chief. I have 1000 people to shoot, stab, and set on fire. They ain't going to do it to themselves. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 08:07, 10 August 2010 (BST)
You want any help with that? I'm planning to do the same, and I'm freshly stocked on all of my regular supplies (though I should stop by a puppet museum at some point, since my facemask is rather bloodied). IV PK 08:16, 10 August 2010 (BST)
I'm certainly not going to refuse the help of one of my fellows. Not sure where I'm going to start back up again, but figured I might venture down to Stanbury Village and finish that place off for psychological reasons. And yes, definitely stop somewhere for a new mask along the way as I need a replacement too. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 08:32, 10 August 2010 (BST)
