'crat seat

Your 'crat seat is up in a few days, and I hadn't seen anyone else mention it yet, so I figured I'd remind you in case you had forgotten. Aichon 23:25, 15 August 2013 (BST)

I'm aware of it being up very soon. I have been the only one to keep tabs on A/RE for many months now :P -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 00:20, 16 August 2013 (BST)
Hey, I look at it just as often as you do...because it shows up in my watchlist whenever you make a change to it. Aichon 00:50, 16 August 2013 (BST)
Are you sure you've been paying attention? XD Bob Moncrief EBDW! 01:51, 18 August 2013 (BST)
Curse you for double-confusing me. Made me fix the fix for a minute. -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 02:05, 18 August 2013 (BST)

You shot me in the cock.

Hope there's no hard feelings, you can have my seat next. --Rosslessness 21:48, 3 September 2013 (BST)

I could, but why would I want to? My stance has always been to take positions as the community sees them fit to me, not to seek them out actively. We will see in 3 months. -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 22:30, 3 September 2013 (BST)
As a representative of the community, I demand that you give Ross the vacation he's been asking for, and that you and Bob become the wiki's new power couple, ever since Boxy and Ross split. Aichon 22:44, 3 September 2013 (BST)
Sorry to burst your bubble, but I'm taken already. ;) Bob Moncrief EBDW! 05:19, 4 September 2013 (BST)
I'll worry about that whole crat thing in December and not a second earlier. It's still a long time, ripe with potential for drama, misconduct and possibly The Big Revealâ„¢ that Bob Moncrief is secretly Grim_s. -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 19:26, 4 September 2013 (BST)
God damnit SZ, we've been keeping this under wraps for years and you go and blow it like this? Sorry about this Grim, Spider doesn't know how to keep his mouth shut. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 19:34, 4 September 2013 (BST)
Wait. I thought I was Grim? $DEITY DAMN IT ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 06:18, 5 September 2013 (BST)
Nope. You are merely Axe Hack. -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 07:23, 5 September 2013 (BST)
I'm Thad. I created the account as a joke account, a reflection of the worst kind of wiki user. Then, hilariously people actually voted for my sysop bid. I tried to convince DDR that it had all got out of hand, but he promoted my alt. Feeling guilt, I made sure Thads decisions were always idiotic and contrary to my own. Then finally, when it came to re-evaluation I knew I couldn't maintain the charade any longer. I stepped the account down, and continued with only my main. I'm sorry, I don't know why I even did it. --Rosslessness 19:02, 5 September 2013 (BST)

RG

So is it dead? --Rosslessness 12:34, 15 September 2013 (BST)

It is for all practical purposes. Unless Kyle gets actually to work, someone else steals the database or someone else decides to start a new RG from scratch, I don't see it ever taking off again. -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 12:38, 15 September 2013 (BST)
Hmm. We have some pages that need updating then. --Rosslessness 13:36, 15 September 2013 (BST)
I will need to research the relevant dates through more than a year's worth of spambot activity oer on the RG forums. Then I will update. -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 13:48, 15 September 2013 (BST)
Hm, this is odd. While I was researching which the latest report processed was, I have found one that was processed by Carrie Cutter about a week ago. I will need to ask Carrie if and to what extent things are working again before making any claims on main pages. -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 15:04, 15 September 2013 (BST)

Pagan event idea

Here's a screen of that thread you couldn't see: http://i.imgur.com/Fu9Fb82.jpg

Basically it's a Norse pagan ritual that is held at the beginning of winter and the middle of winter but there are no specific dates. I don't know if it's the same thing you were trying to organise last year but if we could get it organised and coordinated between the groups that would be great --TD 03:17, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, I've been madly busy with work. The idea I had was entirely different (more based on Rauhnacht and its main protagonist, the the Wild Hunt). Essentially, make the Rauhnacht a bloody reality for a suburb and have the wild riders kill anyone within who is fair game for the hunt. -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 07:56, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

O fellow crat

I assume Rev's lack of response qualifies as confirmation of demotion. Can I go ahead and demote? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 00:38, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Hold it for now. He has banned some bots since, which is pretty much action implying intent to the contrary of his previous request. I'd want an explicite confirmation of the request just to make sure, as it is common practice here anyway. -- Spiderzedâ–ˆ 17:08, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
Right, forgot about those (they don't show up on the regular contributions list). Will wait for confirmation. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 02:57, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Edit?

Just wondering here, but why did you edit my page to add the signature? -- TheBardofOld 01:48, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Did you mean Category:Hoddmimis Holt? If so, click that link and it'll explain why it was added. Aichon 04:26, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Nope, not that. Spiderzed added my signature to the bottom of my character page for Derek Sutherland for some reason. It's not a huge problem. I just don't understand why.-- TheBardofOld 05:17, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
I'm not aware of having added a signature. -- Spiderzed 06:45, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Huh, weird. I guess I added it. Whoops. Apologies for the wrongful accusation Spider. -- TheBardofOld 07:02, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

I woke up. Any wiki salvaging still need doing?--Rosslessness 19:34, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Glad I clicked the link.

Was freaking out, thinking someone from the B.A.R simply took it upon themselves to do as my sisters says "t3h l-l@x000rr". Saw otherwise. Legit guys, being legit. Raining Fire 12:58, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Disappointed...

I really thought you'd break the wiki, pwny it up, or some other such garbage. Now, I see you're planning on turning in your keys with nay a pwny in sight. --K 20:48, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

RE: Houghton Towers

I know Spiderzed, it's why I said "I had second thoughts." But in the end, if the game stays long enough... the dead will leave and I can start having a safe H.Q.. Even if it takes forever and majority of players are gone... I won't care. Reasons can be just strong enough to do something, or the core strength of 'why.' And my reason for staying hasn't seen a variable to leave yet. Because that variable would have to be the game shutting down. They'll get bored eventually, and even if I don't have a playground full of people to play with, I'll still have fun :) But I won't leave, I have a liking to Houghton Towers, if I leave, I won't have my reason to stay. --- Umbrella Corp.gif Alex Yamata 09:52, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Rules For Location Picture?

I'd like to use a picture from google images as the representation of a building in the game on the wiki, but just to be safe, are there, and what are the rules for getting one? --- Umbrella Corp.gif Alex Yamata 12:07, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Hey Alex, if you look at the upload form when you go to upload an image you'll see the basic versions of the rules. My assumption is that your question relates to copyright. Our rules state that you shouldn't upload copyrighted images without permission, but in practice it's no issue unless the copyright holder makes a specific complaint, in which an administrator will take it down. But this is extremely rare, so my advice is that you just upload it first and then see if any issue comes up. A ZOMBIE ANT 14:35, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Suggestion help

Hey there, I put up a suggestion in the discussion page, and I think this could be an answer making the game continue to be fun for the players that are still here. I think that UD has to keep the players that it has, and keep them entertained. I think the idea can be easily expanded upon to make the fun last. Anyway just want to get someone's opinion on it seeing as noone really looks there anymore.JoshCz (talk) 20:25, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

I wanted to make a pun here, but my mind went blank

Hey hey, Zed of eight legs. Remind me again...What's the policy on external links in sigs? Because I was thinking of linking my YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch in my sig. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm active again, mind you. I admit, I've gotten bored of Urban Dead (and most other text based games) shortly after I quit. --Axe Hack's Ghost (talk) 01:40, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

They're fine so long as they conform to anything else in the sig rules (images over 14px tall are a no go, no weiners, etc). The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 17:32, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
Can I be an anarchist instead of a conformist? I'll be like that crazy old man on the street corner crying about how damned the world is. --Axe Hack's Ghost (talk) 17:44, 16 July 2015 (UTC)


Hello

Hello spiderzed of the populat, oracle of the wiki. What do I do against impersonation user accounts being created in my groups name:

http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php?title=User:Pathetic_Bill_Tribute_Band&action=edit&redlink=1 http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php?title=User:The_Pathetic_Bill_Tribute_Band&action=edit&redlink=1

Most likely the zerger Jack Yocum as he was upset some time ago that he used his real name on the wiki and someone said it in game.

Cheers--EmPathetic Bill (talk) 09:50, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Stay tuned right here at Vandal Banhammering. I will wait for other ops first as they haven't done anything yet but to create the accounts, so there is no immediate danger that requires me to overturn the usual bureaucrazy. -- Spiderzed 20:15, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

A belated apology

Hey SZ, I wanted to make sure to sincerely apologize to you as soon as I got back. I pretty much abandoned you as sole bureaucrat for a while there. You did excellently as our sole fearless leader, and I'm sorry for making it even lonelier at the top. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 21:30, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm actually rather glad that it wasn't something more serious. And now jump on A/PM, faggot, we need some ops who actually do something sometimes other than to stuff themselves with Hotpockets. -- Spiderzed 16:56, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
Unless you count getting a call at 11pm saying "you're flying to Greece tomorrow morning for six months" serious. And maybe wait to A/PM me til I've hit the 500 edits threshold again — although at the rate I tend to spam-edit (and update greater Darvall danger reports) that might be in about a week or so ;D Bob Moncrief EBDW! 03:07, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
This is the point where Bob reveals that he's actually Yonnua in disguise with sysop account #3. Aichon 15:03, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
Still sticking with the story that I'm not you, I see. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 15:07, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
Just get on A/PM, fogett. We will check for 500 edits by the time that official procedures are through. (Not that the 500 edits criterion would be pleased by any op of today.) -- Spiderzed 21:50, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes… “one”… >_> ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 22:42, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
Does anyone remember I made a bet that he was dead? I genuinely thought he was dead. Then people passed a policy straight after that basically said if he was dead, he would still be eligible to be a crat. Good times. A ZOMBIE ANT 06:31, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

I'm leaving this to you. I'm about to head out for the day. Hard to believe it's been going this entire day, basically. Thanks for the work, and thanks as well Bob and DDR, since I know you're both watching this page. Aichon 22:47, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
It's 2350 around here during the week... Guess where I will be heading soon? We might need moar spambatters from Oz. The clocks there run backwards, so they can cover the most improbable times. -- Spiderzed 22:52, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Zerge List

I noticed you've submitted users to Resensitized's Zerge List within the last 18 months, is this something you've done regularly? Do you know what state it's currently in? A ZOMBIE ANT 12:44, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

In the more active times of the game, I have been with ZHU and helped on a number of zerg investigations, as well as submitted some zerg sightings of my own. These days Resensitized seems to be asleep at the wheel, but so does most of the metagame. The backlog from the heydays still makes for a great resource. -- Spiderzed 12:55, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
If you have the time, could you quickly outline a general insight into how you would investigate? How much proof would be needed to designate someone as a Zerg? What telltale signs did you look for? A ZOMBIE ANT 06:50, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
Naming-style. (When you see ObviousZerg001, ObviousZerg002, ObviousZerg003 and ObviousZerg017 in the same building, it doesn't really take a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on.) Close creation dates and successive profile IDs. Physical proximity on the map. Acting one after another in short succession towards the same goal. Profile descriptions can also be a strong indicator, especially if the player behind the zergs has an odd spelling mistake or an odd choice of words.
If several of those fit, you can be pretty sure of having caught a zerg army. This only captures the dumb zergs, but in my experience most zergs aren't very subtle or clever about their zerging. Most zerg investigations just involves hanging out in the area to observe the activity of the suspected zerg alts to get multiple screenshots of them acting in quick succession to rule out anecdotal flukes, and to catch any additional zerg alts that may have been overlooked at first. -- Spiderzed 12:58, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
The one note on quickly-acting-in-succession — because this is how (e.g.) zombie strike teams operate, this alone doesn't prove zerging. It'd have to go hand-in-hand with other indicators as well. Otherwise, these are the indicators I use too. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 14:51, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
Strike teams almost always operate in parallel, not succession. If you see "X killed 1, X killed 2, Y killed 3, Y killed 4, Z killed 5" and so on, it's probably a zerg, since each character is doing all of their actions before the next one begins. If you see "X killed 1, Y killed 2, X killed 3, Z killed 4, Y killed 5", it's probably a team, since their attacks are interleaving one another as they all attack together after picking their targets at the start.
