Adding descriptions

Hi TripleU, fair play to you for taking the time to add in-game location descriptions.

That said, I'm in favour of adding the in-game description to location page stubs, but not when a description and photos have been provided, and especially when the in-game description doesn't match. It looks weird to read a description of a building and see a photo of something completely different, or read another conflicting description later on. I took a lot of time over those Stanbury Village pages (among other suburb locations) and now they look and read rather oddly. For example, the "fire-damaged red-brick" of Brome Library, otherwise described and depicted as a limestone medieval library, or the all-glass Stribling Library which is now also "an imposing concrete building split by a large, diagonal crack". :/ --Mallrat The Spanish Inquisition TSI The Kilt Store TKS Clubbed to Death CTD 08:46, 8 July 2012 (BST)

You're gonna have to speak up, I can't hear you over those jackhammers outside. Something about "rent-a-horse?" Mules.jpg

Unemplementia Suburbs

Hello again. Since I have some time off from term and work, I wanted to ask you if you're still interested in suburb designs for Rosslessness's Unemplementia city? --TheBardofAwesome 00:24, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

The only topic on this page you'll ever need to read

It's far too early to withdraw or get into massive overhauling - the policy would need to simmer anyway for three days before it could go to voting. Things don't look peachy right now, granted, but at least DDR sounded in favour of keeping spam from Kevan's talk in the VB case discussion. We'll see.
As for the Escape II event, I don't view being randomly revived as a casualty - at least not for Team Zambah. Remember, kids: If you stick a needle into Toten "Feral Death-Cultist Guide" Mannskiste, he doesn't step on toes. He steps on necks. -- Spiderzed 20:47, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Will you get mad if I occasionally refer to you as "one-and-a-half-V" (which I did once, in case you haven't seen)...?

Triple U is actually a cool name, but I felt like being funny. Which I probably wasn't. ~m T! 05:07, 31 December 2010 (UTC)


I came across this a few weeks ago... What is {{switch|CURRENTYEARc2010 supposed to do? -- †  talk ? f.u. 06:06, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Vapor's topic here

Well damn you type faster and I won't feel as if you've logged from the wiki without answering questions from your talk page :D. BTW, history shows that it was in fact You who posted the half-assed switch template on the Religion page. :P now let's go have cake, friend. ~Vsig.png 07:13, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Switch Redirect

Try the redirect on the outside of the switch, but the link on the inside. I think that might work.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:03, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

I was hoping you wouldn't see that

You caught me. ~Vsig.png 02:38, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, that's a...

good point. My thought was that new stuff probably won't come for a while since I am somewhat busy these days so syndication seemed liked a sorta-kinda good idea at the time. Also, I've seen some of things your propagandist has done. It's appreciated. Let me know if you ever desire to write something longer; MHS could use some new / any blood.-MHSstaff 05:23, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

An Fak?

What? Fak, fak is both singular and begins with a Fer sound (as in rhymes with flak.) as opposed to an ef sound. Unless he's calling it an F.A.K. it should be A fak. Although the an H. thing is probably correct. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 02:21, 22 January 2011 (UTC)


Go ahead. Although the interpunction errors were already in the original. -- Spiderzed 01:48, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

AH page

You wrote

If only the bottom pic could occupy the gray space below and to the left. That would be real classy.

Just thought I would add my two cents. I will not be offended if you ignore me or tell me to mind my own business. To get it to occupy the left space, you just have to un-center it, but to get it to occupy the grey beneath, you have to give up your cell padding. I would suggest instead putting it in a filled box that is roughly the same color as the pic. You can then specify a percentage of how far across the page you want it to go and center your image inside of it, to look like your .jpg is extended to either side, or right justify it within a box that takes up more than 50% of the screen, to keep the image more or less in the center of the screen but have it reach to the left.

As a side note, adding comments to this page using the "+" button adds them to the bottom of the code in a non-displayed section of your page. I moved it up but I thought you might want to be aware.

Annus Horribilis

I could probably cover up the title with a div box if you wanted.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:06, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Ooh, what's a div box? --    : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 09:26, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Look at my user page - the things with scroll bars are div boxes, and you can have them in any colour, size, in any place on the screen, and without scroll bars. Putting one at the start of the AH page code, and then setting the position as -X so that it goes upwards would cover the title.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:20, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Aha, geddit now, but no idea how to use it properly. Could u please be so kind if u have the time? Thanks Yon x --    : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 09:18, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

Looks like you've sorted it already. I'd be happy to slip a div on if you still want, but it looks fine, in all honesty.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 15:48, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

All I did was hide the Title. There's still some white space and a line that should die. --    : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 16:25, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

and while we've gotcha - how do I change the font for entire page? x--    : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 10:38, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

My topic here



Consider this a soft warning not to use magic keywords in recruitment ads to "game" the system. Although this won't count towards vandal data, consider yourself warned softly. Be also encouraged to resolve such minor matters outside of A/VB (e.g. by simply purging the illegal ads.) -- Spiderzed 20:57, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Prize wheel

The last two times you spun ur prize wheel I got {{nothing}}. I think it's broken. ~Vsig.png 20:51, 13 April 2011

BTW if you still want it moved that is fine. It is like four clicks and if it makes coding your group page easier then I don't mind doing it at all. ~Vsig.png 21:22, 13 April 2011
I think I might know what the problem is. I stuggled with the same problems when learning how to use {{ifdef}}. Mind if I have a go at it? ~Vsig.png 05:19, 14 April 2011

District SE-4/Minimap

De-orphaning, also wondering what is the point of this page. Can we delete it? --Karekmaps 2.0?! 09:16, 23 April 2011 (BST)

Sorry, missed your response because of it being at the bottom of my page. Couldn't all of that code then simply be merger onto the District SE-4 page? There's not much to it and it seems fairly excessive to put so small of an insert into a whole subpage. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 09:51, 30 April 2011 (BST)

lil help

I honestly can not make heads or tales of how to use the wiki setup for I know what to write but can not understand how to set it up —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dark Steel (talkcontribs) at an unknown time.

About the Angels Wing Page

I'm so sorry it took me this long to talk to you, I didn't read you post, i thought it was more ideas on how to help maintain the wiki, and seeing as i don't use the wiki other than to maintain my page and my group page, i didn't think I'd need it..

I'd love to go with option C, i could have the things that are most important to our group, and several tags at the bottom..

If you would still help me with my page, I'd be really appreciative, I'm so sorry it took me this long to contact you! and i thank you for taking your time to try and contact me, please do take care!

--Snoog4 21:51, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

P.S. you have permission to edit the page, sorry for any other inconveniences that i may cause.--Snoog4 21:53, 2 January 2012 (UTC)


You may notice it is suceptable to page caching issues. If you're going to use it, I'd suggest building a purge link into any incoming links to it. There's a seperate template I made just for that reason, in fact. {{purge}}. Use it and whenever the resulting link is clicked, your page using the currentminute template will be purged of its cache. For external use, use this direct link ~Vsig.png 04:15, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Oh yeah, forgot I already said all this a long time ago on the discussion page, I did. Glad its working out. If ya want to throw some FOD propaganda in there, ya know, I won't mind too much. ~Vsig.png 05:37, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Barhah Trips

Hey man, how've you been? Not sure if you have your email addy hooked to this wiki account still and if you'll get this. I'll try emailing you later if I don't get a reply. Wondering if you'd be willing to come out of hiding to help with a little community project I'm thinking of doing for BB4. I want to bring back the Death Rattle Battle and could use another couple of MCs with a pension for zamgrh. I immediately thought of you and Mis and our work on the Dictionary/zamgrh map and the 2010 Death Rattle Battle. Let me know if you're interested. ~Vsig.png 17:57, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

I'll have the wiki page completed and start campaigning the event this weekend. Judging to tak place mid month and at the end of the month. The whole thing should be wrapped up by the end of July or early August. ~Vsig.png 15:18, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Scheduled v. Speedy

Hey TripleU! Just wanted to let you know that the Scheduled Deletions page is only for requesting new deletion schedules, an entire class of files/pages eligible for scheduled deletion. Any specific page to be deleted under a schedule should still be requested on the Speedy Deletions page. Thanks! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 12:37, 15 July 2013 (BST)


Regarding this, yup, I know. I was on my phone, saw what was clearly a case of accidental impersonation, but knew I didn't have enough time to do a proper edit or add a comment, so I figured that rolling it back was better than nothing. After all, I could come back later and add a nice, explanatory comment while correcting it with the {{unsigned}} template. And then I forgot to come back later. >_< Thanks for fixing it.

Danger status updates

Hey, I've noticed on a few of the updates you've made recently you've deleted the '=' after 'user', which leads to it looking like it's unsigned. I've fixed a couple that I've come across so far, but I thought I'd let you know :) stelar (talk) 08:10, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

Oh! Nice catch, thanks for that. I tend to drone through them and I do occasionally miss something. Spiderzed once called me out for something similar. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 05:11, 27 December 2017 (UTC)
