For adding all those resource building subheaders to the suburb pages. It'll save me alot of time with setting up the Builing Information Centers.~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 21:48, 7 July 2009 (BST)

I've got all the Fire station reports filed (God, that was a nightmare), and it looks like most of hospital and PD reports are in too (although there are still gaps). From here it's just checking and filing (and filing, and filing...) each suburb. Also, when you get to work on the BIC pages, I have two small requests: One, that you start with the Arkhams and move right and up (to keep us from tripping on each other); and two, that you use the Building Information Center/Rhodenbank as a template for the BICs. It's the one I've been using so far, and I'd like to keep the databases as uniform as possible. Again, thanks for the hand!~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 22:21, 7 July 2009 (BST)
You might want to sign the centers you write up. Its not a big deal, but almost all other centers have a signature, and I wouldn't want to see you not getting credit for your work.~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 19:34, 8 July 2009 (BST)
P.S. Nice template :)
Yeah, the map was made by The Status Reporters, the original group to try to knock out the BICs. I update it every five or so suburbs; In fact, I just recently added your progress as well.~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 19:50, 8 July 2009 (BST)
Just updated the final suburb -Dartside- finishing the BIC. Thanks to you, this thing got done a lot sooner than expected, and your updates really set an example to use with other pages. Even though the hard part (actually writing the reports) is out of the way, I hope you'll stick around to help fine tune this machine. Again, thanks. ~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 08:25, 9 July 2009 (BST)
That has to be the craziest thing I've ever seen (in a good way). I'd be glad to pitch in and lend a hand. One small thing I noticed is that there are a few strage squares in Havercroft and Earletown (probably left over from a typo I'm guessing). They really aren't much of a problem, but I'd try to make sure none of them are left in the final version. Just something to look out for.~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 23:05, 13 July 2009 (BST)
Great job on that map (I'm guessing you're doing one per building type now?) That's an awsome concept. Anyways, sorry I backed out on my offer to help (I tried and fell flat on my face).--~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 20:04, 21 July 2009 (BST)
Funny you should say that, I just left the MOB a little "thank you" note on their locator page. Ironically, they're probably the best group when it comes to updating reports. Anyways, yeah, I'll make sure to send out some adverts/pleas to active groups. As to your template problem, are you sure your spelling and capitailizing it correctly? templates can be pretty picky.--~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 20:18, 21 July 2009 (BST)

When you're making the factory danger reports, make sure to put them in Category:Factory Danger Levels and Category:(suburb name) Danger Levels|Building name. Leave them out of the BIC category- that one's for the suburbs!--~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 22:37, 21 July 2009 (BST)

The Imperium

Why does no-one like them? They seem like quite a nice bunch, I have looked at the "war" and believe that it was an un-provoked attack, what did the imperium do to deserve the griefing war that followed? Oldharry101---23:29 (UST/GMT)

Know who I am yet? The only reason I want a new name is
  • A Were not in Monroeville
  • B There was already a Malton group called The Many

--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 13:32, 6 August 2008 (BST)


Your template signature seems to be broken. It would have broken the numbering here, so I removed it and left your regular signature there.

Just to illustrate how it breaks it;

  1. --RahrahCome join the #party! text that's supposed to be on the same line as the signature
  2. should be number two

It looks like there are some trailing newlines in the signature. I suggest you remove them and do not use the signature before the above numbered list works properly. If you do not know how to fix it, I can try. --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 10:53, 7 August 2008 (BST) Fixed. :)

Your new character

At the moment id recommend you gain a few levels in a safe suburb like Houldenbank and gain a few essential skills (Free running, etc.) Then, your best bet for helping our cause is to help defend the tribe building NT which is on the Northern most border of Houldenbank, a suburb which is adjacent to Dentonside. --Nimrod1 21:05, 8 August 2008 (BST)

Actually one of my alternative characters is in the Stickling mall. If you can get in via the North West corner when its below EHB you can heal survivors in there for quick exp. --Nimrod1 21:11, 8 August 2008 (BST)

Your crazy rip off page

Its a start.

Any of these any good for you?



--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:26, 8 August 2008 (BST)

Im going to go and have a think, throw my own suggestion out there, but I'll leave a lot of last minute thing until later. Also have you considered a move to --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:44, 8 August 2008 (BST)

See what you think. User:Rosslessness/Random Rambling/Sandbox5 RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 15:39, 9 August 2008 (BST)

What mad wiki skills?

Its all quite easy really. What you want to know? I can teach most of it within a day. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 17:33, 9 August 2008 (BST)

Yeah. Thats the way, just steal it off some page you like and mess around.

Ive had a word with Bisfan, about and we just need to let them know names, admins and hte like.

Incidently Dulston Power? Don't you mean Dentonside power? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 17:42, 9 August 2008 (BST)

The Monroeville Many are Migrating

haha, well thats good to know. if you guys need a place to get started and level some alts your welcomed in our home suburb Whittenside, there's always fresh trenchies coming to the fort so there's plenty to eat for all.--Bullgod 08:16, 12 August 2008 (BST)

Your suggestion:

Thanks for that heads up, there's a reason I test stuff out in "the AH sandbox", after all...

If you might impart a bit of wisdom… see the white parts in the navbar containing the links? Is there any way get those to be black?

(Woah... thanks. I was fiddling with it in the SB, gave up, looked back… and it was black! Thanks for your help, as my wiki skillz are almost nonexistent. --Hardcore Rockabilly 09:44, 12 August 2008 (BST)

Hmmm... Okay, I can see the edits when comparing the versions, but I can't see the any visible difference. am I doin' it wrong?

I see that, but I seem to recall the titles always being white. Am I missing something?

Well, have a wonderful shower, and thanks a lot for your help. My visible titles thank you as well.

Ive changed the add, because I couldn't read it!. What Browser are you using, because it was black wiriting on a black background for me. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 20:47, 12 August 2008 (BST)

Thank You, sir!

Glad we could help in the effort to hold Ackland. Our team is currently split, but we're doing the best we can on either side of the border. Those /zom/ guys are a kick, aren't they...

I enjoyed the lofi add. But id make the move to asap. Leave the old forum behind. what you think?--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 19:46, 21 August 2008 (BST)
Dont forget to update the links, they all still point to the old MM forum. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 10:24, 22 August 2008 (BST)

Nicholas Mall

I noticed that you were the one who updated the wiki status of the mall. Anyway, the Malton Block Party will be held in the area quite soon. Who would I need to contact to talk about a temporary non-aggression pact? I'd like to get one corner of the mall de-ruined for about 7 days or so, to be handed back to the zombies after the party is over. It's all in the name of community building and fun, of course.--Labine50 MEMS | MHG 00:33, 15 September 2008 (BST)

Project CP

Okay! Well when you find the time, would you be able to go to the Active Projects part of UDWiki:Projects and, through checking history (or status of the project on the page) just make a list of them and whether they actually are active or not. There aren't too many pages to seive through, so hopefully you're up for it =] If you decide to give it a go, just leave the list on the Project CP talk page.

It's the group I founded almost a year ago. We have been fairly successful if I do say so myself. Pro survivor group with capitals in Shearbank, Santlerville, and Pitneybank. --Haliman - Talk 20:18, 9 July 2009 (BST)

Damn, if you would join us, that'd be great! :P. Let's talk more in detail later. i'll be on leave until sunday. --Haliman - Talk 06:54, 10 July 2009 (BST)

You're not planning on doing this all by hand are you? Heavens above, if you need another StatusMap variant I could've just churned one out using a script. Big timesaver. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 17:06, 21 July 2009 (BST)

I was holding back on the various TRPs as most of them still lack the odd report here and there, that and I haven't checked if all could fit under the inclusion limit. I'll start of them now lest another poor soul loses several hours to it. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 20:03, 21 July 2009 (BST)

I've run out the PD and Hospital maps and will finish the other TRPs shortly. A couple of the reports seem to be missing though, they're all for disambiguated locations so you probably just need to check the reports are on the right pages. You can see which ones are missing by editing the map and then scrolling through the list of templates used, looking for redlinks. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 20:47, 21 July 2009 (BST)

Turns out that ARs and factories have like almost no reports. So I'll leave it as is for now. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 20:55, 21 July 2009 (BST)


Stop just now. We're still in the process of discussing how things should happen, and so far it isn't the way you're working it.

As the clear majority, the 'player-made events' should be in the Events category, there's no point moving the masses over to another category that they clearly can stay in, as Kevan's events are the minority and the specialist historical pages, we should be moving them along. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 13:55, 3 September 2009 (BST)

Group removal

Please do not remove groups from suburb listings due to your own opinions about them as you did here, or at least have the good grace to inform the group of your intentions and reasoning for discussion first. -- To know the face of God is to know madness....Praise knowledge!

I was so thinking about this today, what way your idea? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 21:57, 7 October 2009 (BST)

I was thinking a smaller, new lexicon. Maybe that was easier to understand. We can call it Lexicon;Survival --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 17:43, 8 October 2009 (BST)
Added some stuff on the lexicon discussion. ONce formats done, you can spam it in the CP and Wiki News. Drum up more interest. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 10:26, 10 October 2009 (BST)
9 people already. I reckon by tomorrow It will be full! --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:10, 11 October 2009 (BST)
I really don't think it matters. Some people will drop out anyway, and as commander in chief you can ask people to do specifice pieces that are missing or double up. You have to decide when you want to officially start it. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:16, 11 October 2009 (BST)
12 baby! --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:22, 12 October 2009 (BST)
Might be busy next week. Any chance I can do my lexicon early? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 19:25, 13 October 2009 (BST)
Slightly confusd by the end of round stuff. Can you give an example? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 20:03, 22 October 2009 (BST)
Heres an example. I write a piece entitled "dwindling away" which is a phrase from BENEFITS OF ZOMBIFICATION. Within the article, I add a link to COMMAND, another first lexicon article. Anything else I need to do? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 20:33, 22 October 2009 (BST)


No. Not really. Images are categorised, orphans is empty, suburb news is cycled.




Suburb listing needs redoing! --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 18:33, 14 October 2009 (BST)

Good start. I'll leave you to take it off all the suburbs they aren't in anymore as well. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 19:55, 14 October 2009 (BST)

You want a job? Fetch. I'll give you 24 hours until I do them myself. My clock starts.... --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 00:45, 15 October 2009 (BST)

Sorry, I cheated. I cut the deadline off early and did it myself. Still, you disappoint me, padawan ;D --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 01:08, 16 October 2009 (BST)


Let me try again.

I have to pick an article (other than my own)

So lets say yours. I pick the phrase "Rebirth Memory", and turn it into a red link?

I can't write the rebirth memory piece.

Does that make sense?

And what with the reference on Lexicon:Brain, The? Wheres that come from? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:05, 23 October 2009 (BST)

And what happened with MOM? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:06, 23 October 2009 (BST)
and is the bee active? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:06, 23 October 2009 (BST)

Edit conflict. Twice. D:.

Yes. You do exactly as you said. It appears User:Broggly, a member of the Lexicon, added in a reference and also their signature though i'm not sure where Mhr came into the article.

About MOM, I just sent my only free character to go eat with the MOB, and I have no experience whatsoever with survivor groups (bar 404.) and especially none leading them.

Also, bee is hanging round Molebank, healing while waiting for what 404 are gonna do next. We're still in Molebank, right? --RahrahCome join the #party!22:13, 23 October 2009 (BST)

No, we're looking at somewhere else. Check the forum, we have a new target. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:43, 23 October 2009 (BST)

I can has clarification?

So I picked DDR's Lexicon:Cannibalism, made a red link out of glorified murders, and added it to GHI. This is okay, yes?

Now I'm not sure... do I have to do this again? I mean, should I create another phantom? I'm afraid there's conflicting directions here. Teh Rulez says "others will make three citations to entries in the piece," which makes me think I should make three citations. But the Note in Lexicon:Survival says "you may only cite once." And that article by the Neel bloke says "at the end of the article, you sign your name, and make two citations to other entries in the encyclopedia."

I'm in bits now :S --Sophie ◆◆◆ CAPD 22:12, 24 October 2009 (BST)

You can only cite 1 article at a time, but every article can only be cited with 3 links. When you cite an article, you make a note of it on the bottom of the original article you just added it to. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 00:13, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Ah, of course. Forgot the note. I'll rectify momentarily. --Sophie ◆◆◆ CAPD 01:22, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Right, have a look at the lexicon, i think theres 4 different ideas about citing going on, use your lexicon overlord power and people know how they should do it --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 14:25, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

So are we allowed to start on article 2 yet? Because I've got an interview with Dr. Francis that's taking up a good amount of space on my tapes. Space that could be used to tivo old episodes of LOST... Errr... study the narcolepsy in infected individuals.--~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 00:47, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
I guess so, it technically started two days ago. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 00:56, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
A slight problem; there are only three "phantoms" in this week's category; my citation (which I can't use), a citation from my article (ditto, and vouched for at that), and a third one which I'd rather not deal with. What now, sir?--~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 01:21, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
I made a cool one >=D --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 03:01, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
I already wrote my article though :(
It's got more allusions than an 11th grade english textbook.--~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 03:04, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

more help

With the lexicon, is it banned to retroactively cite older articles from previous rounds; not for the sake of the game but for the sake of extensifying the lexicon? eg, in one of my articles I wish to cite Lexicon:Breakout, can it be done. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 10:50, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

I think its actively encouraged! --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:24, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
It takes up a citation though and I only have 3, and I'm banking on my erotic sleeping patterns page to have plenty of out of context, seedy citations. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 11:26, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
