Stop hand.png
Please do not spam talk pages with messages targeting users who are most likely not interested in the message/advertisement. Even if it's in jest it can annoy. However, the actual argument about vote striking on the voting page wasn't vandalism and as such, I'm just giving you a heads up that it's still fair game on whether you'd like to discuss/fight for the rules if you'd like. I personally think you're wrong but I won't enforce my views against your edits anymore and as such I'm considering it Yon's responsibility if he wants to discuss it with you, possibly over at A/A, as he is page organiser. So basically sorry it got so annoying and personal, I only enforced what I thought were the rules of the wiki but since the sysops ruled it as much more interpretable than I thought I'm happy to drop it and let you do what you'd like. -- 11:15, 5 July 2010 (BST)
I targeted only members who have been involved in the Election page, and only left one message per member, clearly making note of who if was from and why the message was left. I will dispute this charge in the proper venue. Thank you for the heads up, and for the consideration. It is appreciated.

A few qualms. First off, it was orphaned. Now it's linked here. :P Second, it should probably be in PK namespace or a redirect or whatever.

It was a redirect originally. Then I decided to make it a stub. This practice of linking things on talk pages is incredibly lazy and satisfies an obsessive desire for order without actually providing anything useful, and all of you who do it should be ashamed! Grr! Argh! *shaking fist*

oldest group

Rev, I finally got around to reading one of your reponses. Team Zombie Hardcore was founded on August 29th, 2005. That was Mark Whalberg's origination date, and the character was made specifically to found the group. I have an email from that date, from Mark Whalberg's sent to a bunch of the oldschool TZH'ers speaking of how to log in, and what group tag to use.

I also want to point out that part of our criteria (as opposed to yours) include that TZH has never been inactive, and since the invention of the stats page we have been on it. Our group has operated under the same leadersip, same mission statement, and same name continuously since August 29th. I am generous in saying that the RRF might also meet that Criteria. While D13 has been around longer (for sure) their leadership (I believe has changed) several times. --Dhavid Grohl 15:28, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Also, wanted to point out that while Cannonball Crew is a cool group, they weren't officially a group for quite a while. The even allude to this on their group history page, that they "informally" referred to themselves as Cannonball Crew. Organization didn't come until later. Now... when does a group become a group? Hard to say. I have changed our wiki page to reflect the change over RRF, and the deference to DK13... even if I think their leadership has changed.--Dhavid Grohl 15:36, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
Ah! Good to hear from you on this. That definitely makes you guys one of the oldest still-active groups. Wonder if it's worth moving the fruits of that little research project to the wiki? It's going to get a lot more readership and contribution here, and I personally think that it's worth preserving as much of this type of history as possible. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 17:19, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
I would think so as well. While Brainstock, and many of the other sites have a lot of hits, its no where near the volume I think the wiki gets, as its directly linked from the main page. Would a whole new category be needed... Historical facts? Or something like that. I imagine we could have a lot more than group listings. Major events might count too. Big Bash, Caiger Mall, etc. Things like that are scattered around on different user pages or location pages right now. There really hasn't been a great way to look at in toto. We could have discussions on the relevance of certain issues, etc. As a social experiment UD has been unique, and the history of the groups, players, and events reflects that, and I agree with you that its worth saving. --Dhavid Grohl 22:21, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
