Whats with the new pages? At least one of them is blank, if you need somewhere to fuck around with new ideas either use the Sandbox or use your userpage or a userpage sub page.--xoxo 07:31, 27 April 2008 (BST)

They're templates. I erased the contents of a few because they turned out cruddy. Should I register them for quick deletion? --Zig13 07:33, 27 April 2008 (BST)
Fo' Sho'. A/SD in case you weren't aware.--xoxo 07:34, 27 April 2008 (BST)
'Fo' Sho'? For sure? Right, i'll give it a go... --Zig13 07:36, 27 April 2008 (BST)
You have correctly deciphered my secret message. Congrats.--xoxo 07:37, 27 April 2008 (BST)
And for future reference editing my post on a talk page can be considered vandalism, obviously you were doing it for aesthetic reasons and you didn't alter the meaning at all so i don't care, just letting you know. If you don't like what someone writes on your talk page you can clear it all but you can't edit bits of a post.--xoxo 07:42, 27 April 2008 (BST)
Fair enougth - sorry --Zig13 07:44, 27 April 2008 (BST)
Thanks for all your help! I think that is all of them. --Zig13 07:49, 27 April 2008 (BST)

'Making it work'

My signature help request Problem solved! I now have a very nice signature: Zig13 - 27/04/2008 at 11:04(BST)

Your template

Hey just wondering what the purpose of your dead location template is? Seems pretty much the same as the existing location stub template...$xoxo 12:26, 30 April 2008 (BST)

Oh and you need a bit of work on your profile, your profile link doens't work, i'd be happy to fix things up if you want. And steel capped boots aren't expensive! The cheapest ones down here are like AU$40. --xoxo 12:28, 30 April 2008 (BST)
If by link you mean my signature - it dosn't work on my profile but it works everywhere else so thats fine. The location demplate is different in that all the things the location template usually refers to are already there (map, search thingy etc.). I used the template for my safehouse I am doing up (look in contributions). Thanks for you comment! Zig13 - 1/05/2008 at 06:27(BST)
Ah ok thanks for the explanation about the dead location thing. Nah i mean the link to your profile, you've got these {{{'s in there that you need to remove.--xoxo 06:45, 1 May 2008 (BST)
What link to my profile? My signature seems fine?!? What is on the user:zig13/signature page is exactly what I have in the nickame box and it works... Zig13 - 1/05/2008 at 10:48(BST)
Not your sig, your link to your UD profile. Click on it and you'll see what i mean.--xoxo 11:56, 1 May 2008 (BST)
Fixed it! Thankyou! Didn't notice that... Zig13 - 1/05/2008 at 15:40(BST)


Referring to this

Your edit there removed two other votes (including mine) so i undid it. feel free to go back and sign your vote however make sure you aren't removing other peoples votes accidentally. If you aren't sure what i mean check the history tab.--xoxo 11:12, 7 May 2008 (BST)

Sorry! No idea how that happened there?!? Was it an edit conflict? Your vote was far away from where I edited and all I did was sign it! Zig13 - 7/05/2008 at 11:28(BST)
Sometimes if two people edit at the same time one overrides the other (it happened to me once and i got put on A/VB but declared innocent for it) but since it was iscariot's and my vote i'm not sure...could be edit conflict but you should get a warning and if you ignore it it shouldn't screw up the other people's edits...anyway dw about it, just preview ;) --xoxo 11:56, 7 May 2008 (BST)
Btw if you ever need any help with editing feel free to drop by my talk page, can't remember if i've already offered so might as well reiterate anyway. My wiki skills aren't great but they are good enough and i can find the right person for the job usually if its beyond me. Also how come you killed the top section of this page?--xoxo 12:03, 7 May 2008 (BST)
Ugh? Killed? What, my talk page? Please explain... Zig13 - 7/05/2008 at 14:18(BST)
Well its not quite dead, just...incapacitated. Look under the 'Eh?''ve removed the new lines between our posts of course you can if you want but i didn't exactly see why...--xoxo 07:23, 8 May 2008 (BST)
Oh! Just for consistancy and space saving ;) Zig13 - 8/05/2008 at 10:46(BST)


Anyone know how I could get the 'Contacting Zig13' template to be on the same row as the character description box? Zig13 - 16/06/2008 at 22:06(BST)

Sorry no idea, i've asked the gnome to come and help you out, he'll know what to do!--xoxo 09:51, 18 June 2008 (BST)
Thankyou! I'm also trying to repair the top of Warehouse 48,99. It looks fine on my computer, but I just viewed it on a bigger screen and it isn't so good. Preferably, the transmitter information template should be below the warehouse and block information with the the status reports etc up the left side of this. Zig13 - 18/06/2008 at 09:54(BST)
I took a shot at it. Hows that look? --Kikashie Read the Dispatch! 16:00, 18 June 2008 (BST)
That's fantastic! Thankyou! I will examine the code closely and aim to learn from it! Zig13 - 18/06/2008 at 18:25(BST)

Not Nice

Your slam against the residents of the Bainton Hotel was really rather uncalled for. --Pibbit 02:15, 28 June 2008 (BST)

I had to come up with something to put in the description box. So I put:

Prior to the incident, this hotel was frequented with the rich and famous who cherished it's proximity to Wyke Hills. A far call then from it's current inhabitants who care little for such impracticalities as etiquette and currency

After people expressed thier distaste at this, I changed it to:

Prior to the incident, this hotel was frequented with the rich and famous who cherished it's proximity to a Alner Library and the Mechel Museum . A far call then from it's current inhabitants who find barricading the doors much more important than keeping the place tidy.

However, as the place seems to be frequented by role-players you DO claim to tidy the place, I believe this is still seen as unacceptable. Prior to my edit, the page was empty. I decided to format it so I could add info and do status reports and I needed a filler for the general section. It's simply what I came up with - I had no intention of causing offense. If someone thinks they can write something better, then they are free to replace it. - Zig13 - 29/06/2008 at 18:27(BST)


Thanks for the tip, I'll definately look into that. Btw how did you happen to come across my page? --BrainsTasty 21:35, 10 July 2008 (BST)

Recent changes! I should probably get the 'recent changes stalker' template. I originally found it on the page for some junkyards and have used it in the refurbishment of other location pages as well as on my profile - Zig13 - 11/07/2008 at 06:42(BST)

Templates of Yours

If you do not plan to use them, please post them to Speedy Deletion.

Thanks! --Pedentic 04:00, 7 August 2008 (BST)

Yeh... I have kinda been meaning to do that.... I'll do it right now - Zig13 - 8/08/2008 at 10:08(BST)
All mentioned have been put forward for speedy deletion - Zig13 - 8/08/2008 at 10:12(BST)

Keep or Kill?

You placed your Keep vote in the Kill section. Did you do that on purpose or was it an accident? --Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 14:49, 29 June 2009 (BST)

It seems SirArgo moved it to the Keep section, you can blame him if you intended it as a Kill :). --Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 16:19, 29 June 2009 (BST)
And now J3D's undoed it. Oh well. --Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 17:16, 29 June 2009 (BST)
Having a good convo with yourself there mid?? :P --xoxo 18:01, 29 June 2009 (BST)
It was good until you had to butt in. --Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 13:24, 30 June 2009 (BST)
:( sorry. --xoxo 13:28, 30 June 2009 (BST)
Ummm ooops.... - Zig13 - 30/06/2009 at 16:31(BST)


Template:ContactZig13 is showing up as unused. Do you want it deleted? Please post it on A/SD then. Thanks. --– Nubis NWO 17:51, 15 August 2009 (BST)

Done - thanks for the reminder - Zig13 - 17/08/2009 at 10:40(BST)


It's possible to have a regular page as a template using a trick, which I've outlined on A/SD.

Also, please be careful with your formatting in future with requests. Thanks. Linkthewindow  Talk  12:42, 17 August 2009 (BST)

It's okay - the rest of the Randoms templates are located at Template:The_Randoms/whatever so it makes sense for the one I just made to go there as well. Thanks for the help anyway - I will keep it in mind - Zig13 - 17/08/2009 at 12:52(BST)
