Actually, I've gotten a bunch of drafts on my computer about fixing small problems that are in the system, if you can wait a couple of days for everything else (A/VB, A/M) to calm down, I'll post 'em up here on my sandbox.--Mr. Angel, Help needed? 16:56, 9 June 2009 (BST)

While grateful for your support in the promotion bid I feel I really should point out that I simply do not have the skills or patience to do many of the technical functions that a sysop normally does. This is not to say that I cannot and will not learn enough to help out, rather to point out that I currently have no clue as to how they work. If you were voting for me because you trust my judgement on issues like A/VB and Misconduct then thank you… if you think I can be trusted to maintain the wiki infrastructure then please change your vote to abstain because I am crap at editing stuff let alone fixing other folks mistakes.--Honestmistake 14:00, 3 February 2009 (UTC)


I'm sorry you're leaving for a while (ever?). From my limited interactions with you, you seem a decent person. Best of luck in your future endeavors! --Pedentic 23:09, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Best wishes

I'm sorry to hear that you're leaving, Ross. I hope you don't ask for a permaban just in case you decide to come back, but if you don't, I just want to wish you best of luck in whatever you do next.

Are you planning to stick around the game (read the Noise Abatement Society?) --Pestolence(talk) 02:17, 5 February 2009 (UTC)


Before you leave sysopship go vote misconduct against hagnat. It's the right thing to do :P I'ma miss you pal, come back soon!! --xoxo 05:22, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Bye Ross. It's been nice knowing you, and I sure hope you don't ask for a permaban. That real world can be scary, you know :P.

Thanks for helping me out on those first few months of the Wiki, and generally being one of the nicer sysops.

Good luck with your degree, and the real world generally.

Linkthewindow  Talk  06:13, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Goodbye then,

Well I don't know you very well, if really at all, but when it came to being a sysop let me say that you did a very good job. And in the current state of things, that's what we need most. Good luck on wherever you go.--SirArgo Talk 07:33, 5 February 2009 (UTC)


Sorry Ross, but you are not allowed to leave this wiki. Instead, you are now going to be promoted to bureaucrat without a term expiration. Also, you cannot demote yourself and must give up all your RL pursuits for the wiki. That is all. ;) --ZsL 07:41, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

So Long

You have made many contributions to this small corner of the internet, and more importantly have always come across as a level headed and exceptionally likable person. I thank you for welcoming me on my first day, and hope that you might yet return in future to do so for others. Your presence has had a positive effect on us all and I wish you the best of luck with your real life endeavors. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 16:35, 5 February 2009 (UTC)


Your going??? But you can't leave, your one of the only sane people here. --Honestmistake 17:49, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

I felt like there needed to be another goodbye message...

...So I made one. Bye... you can check in back on my userpage for updates on my game, it might be done by the time you hopefully come back. :) --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 18:41, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Ok Ross, you are now a boring regular user again. =p Best of luck with what you plan to do and hopefully you'll come back to reorganise our extensive piles of crap at some point in future! Good luck. -- Cheese 19:34, 5 February 2009 (UTC)


Thank you for your compliment, Check out my talk page for my longer response to what you said A shorter version of what happened is basically this: we were on a training mission, and St Ferrols was nearby our boot camp. Expect us sticking around for a while :D --User:Zeffrin 3:27 PM (PST)

The case on A/M involving Hagnat banning SLR over his sig is tied. You were a sysop when it was started. If you have a vote (which we need as a tie breaker) it would be greatly appreciated so we can resolve the case.--– Nubis NWO 14:53, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

*Raises Eyebrow*

Things to do on the Wiki when you're dead. Your magic 8-ball spits out random pages names now does it? (You must tell me where to get one, if it does) What's the idea behind this lark of a page then? -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 22:42, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Ah, you're going about it wrongly sir. You want to start by listing all the pages on the wiki and then remove the good ones. It'll go much faster. Yeah, I went there. Take that, wiki! Seriously though, would not making it a wiki-project, or a sub page on CP of "Pages Needing Work" been a little more professional? Ah heck, I'm quibbling, forget about that, mind if I add a stack of pages? I bet I can turn up at least 10 in 10 minutes. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 22:54, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok, so the wiki decided to 404 me, and only me, for 10 minutes after you posted. Harsh. Anyway, chucked a few pages up, though I think I cheated by using a few pages I was responsible for making crap. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 23:28, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
Wasn't just you, me as well. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 23:29, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, everybody else seemed to make plenty of edits during that time. I'm sure I can still top you though, since I've been getting these random outages targeted at me since before my extended leave. Yet everybody else seems unaffected, tis freaky. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 23:34, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

OBR and Other Such Things

On behalf of the OBR, thank you. The group has grown remarkably well with very minimal meta-game advertising, so maybe I'm onto something with the district idea. Time will tell! With any luck our numbers will continue to grow and we will continue to climb the ladder on the stats page.

Also, welcome back to the wiki, even if you're only stopping back once in a while. It's always nice to see names I have come to respect the opinions of jumping back in once in a while. --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 07:47, 5 April 2009 (BST)

I've managed to lock myself out of my main account. It's simply Goribus. I never recieved an email confirmation for that account (I think I used the email as well) and I couldn't get back into it. I doubt you can do much for me, but can I please get a redirect on that account's page and talk pages to this account's user and talk pages at least?

My bad.

Re this -- Yes, I somehow overlooked the (now-obvious) usefulness of the DangerReports. My only excuse is that I thought I had checked them out when I first started here and concluded somehow that they were robot-generated, and that editing would thus probably confuse the robot. I now realize I'd investigated by starting at the link for DangerReportTimekeeperBot and looking for instructions. I didn't see any there, and was sidetracked by that. I'll start putting them back in. --Lariat2301 22:46, 23 May 2009 (BST)

OK, I think I've got it. Why do there seem to be two types of DangerReports? Does the "PIN" type work the same way? No DangerReport existed for Karnaus Row Fire Station, so I created one (can you check it for correctness?); is there anything else that needs doing to register it with the update robot, or does it just use the category list? Also: any recommendations for my Barricade Policy template? I wonder whether it might make more sense to create a single template instead, with the level as the first parameter; I also need to create a "DesiredDWO" version, too. And if it then seems adequate, it could be moved to the template namespace, couldn't it? Although this Wiki seems to use special users, too -- why the separation? --Lariat2301 23:10, 23 May 2009 (BST)

Help with TMOD

We're not exactly bright and happy over at the Fortress with these griefers. They're even going as far as using some of our materials - can we do anything about that? Any help or advice would be appreciated. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 21:58, 9 June 2009 (BST)

Unless it's specifically copyrighted material like handmade pictures or such, you can't do much. Not that you could even if it was. Arbies is the only real way.
