Lexicon Announcements
  • The fourth round of the Survival Lexicon has begun! Four of the 12 articles have been completed.
  • Six articles need to be written for round three, and we're still missing three articles from round two. Round five shall be postponed until these are completed.

This is white so no text is lost. Hopefully.

I kept the lexicon heading here because you people love to talk to me about it, right? ----RahrahCome join the #party!00:51, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Well deadlines gone, and we're still 4 short, let alone 2 phantoms. We alright adding round 2 phantoms? I assume round 3 starts on monday, as im ready to go.
You may have to fire up those replacements! --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 19:38, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Hope you don't mind but I did my third week piece. Come on Rory, sort those stragglers!--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:48, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Those two people you have listed at the top as not having done their first article haven't been online for a week. Brainguard's last contrib was the 23rd, Adward's was the 27th.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 20:50, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I was just tipping you off that you shouldn't be too hopeful of them returning.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:12, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Do the new guys need an explanation of what they need to do RE: citations in round 1? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:14, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Okay, thank you for the notification Rory. :) Jpanzer 21:59, 2 November 2009 (UTC)


At least you're getting involved....

Given that the talk page is going to degenerate fast, and away from the much needed point that needs discussing, I thought it best to reply here. He got 'sardonic replies' etc, because he lied. Look back at contribution history, he states in his edit summary that he's fixing the spelling. He vandalised the page of a group on this wiki and was deliberately deceitful about it. If he'd had followed the directions I gave him and waited for a decision/answered the appropriate questions it would have been sorted. He didn't, even after being told it was vandalism he continued to edit the page of another group for his own personal agenda. He also lied by saying 'tons' of links, in three pages of google there are two, and in between the two UDwiki ones was that comment from the burger site. What do you his chances of getting that removed are? Won't that harm his employment chances just as much? Or do you think his potential employers are going to be more concerned with, you know, things that aren't browser games or indications of sexual acts with meat food products?

SA and I acted like we did because we are under no obligation to be nice to someone who is vandalising, disrupting and lying to this community. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge!

I forfeit my spot on the lexicon. It was grande while it lasted, but I'm too busy to delve into the wiki any further than gnoming at the moment. Sorry bud. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 09:03, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Half a lexicon.

After round 4 i think we should stop, look at filling in the gaps and readvertise for more writing talent. What you think? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:22, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

If someone can explain, in plain English, how the game works, I'd be up for joining in, though it looks like you still have three reserve players to go. I tried reading through all of those rules back when the first call for players was made, and I had to give up after I got lost in the contradictions and jargon at some point. Aichon 16:15, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
The rules do seem to be confusing. I've mainly been doing everything a step behind the rest so I can see how everyone else is doing things. If we need more articles and can't find the player base, would we consider writing multiple articles per player per round? When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 19:43, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Right. Lexicon in 3 sentences and one word.
Everyone writes an article.
Everyone finds a word in someone else's article they think would make a good title for an article, and turns that word into a link.
In the next round you turn one of these links into another article.
Anything I missed?
--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 19:55, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. What happens when a round contains no phantoms. I'm assuming we just pull 12 articles out of our ass like it's round one all over again. Also is it mandatory for all the phantoms to be written? Currently round four contains no phantoms, so you can see where the confusion occurs. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 20:42, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Basically, just what you said. Treat it like round 1. You can either write for an open space or for a phantom with each round. Rory answered a load of my questions over at my talk page, and that was something he addressed. Ross, I was getting hung up on a lot of the details regarding citing and other special cases, which have since been addressed, but thanks for the summary, since that reinforces my understanding of the game.

No problem. Always enjoy a nice post here once in a while :D --Haliman - Talk 19:38, 3 January 2010 (UTC)


No worries man. Glad I could help, if I actually did.... did I? I take it the folder was still there then after all?
Btw, you still have that alt feraling away? We're getting the DSS band back together and you've always got a place here dude.

Just wanted to mention that your logo is actually a few KB too large for the Recruitment page's requirements (and Rooster tends to patrol these sorts of things). I'd replace it myself, but it seems the png compression that my software uses is worse than what you have, and switching it to a jpg means that you lose the transparency on the corners of the envelope. You only need to shave a few KB though, so I'll leave it up to you. Aichon 00:01, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Rooster beat ya to it. Told you he's quick. Anyway, crisis averted. Aichon 22:53, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
