Obtaining Historical Status

A policy is in place which outlines the method to attain historical status.

  1. Events must have been declared over.
  2. The event must have affected either multiple suburbs or how the game was played for a group, such as triggering a change.
  3. A nomination should be made on Category_talk:Historical Events.
  4. An announcement should be made on Wiki News, and {{HistoricalEventVoting}} should be put on the event's wiki page.
  5. Within two weeks of a nomination, the Event must be approved by 2/3 of the voters, with a minimum of 15 voters (or 10 YES votes) for a nomination to pass. The only allowable votes are Yes and No
  6. Events that pass will be added to the category as described below.
  7. Events must allow a week to pass between nominations.

Nominations for Historical Status

Battle of pitneybank

I just noticed Battle of Pitneybank had never been voted upon for historical, which is kind of surprising. Yes, the article and title is POV and some of the details are contested, but that isn't criteria for historical. This was a pretty huge thing back in 2008. It followed right on the heels of one of the biggest battles of Fort Creedy and some may even argue that Silent Night and the battle of Creedy were was a part of the bigger battle. Though a lot of buildings in Pitney were ransacked by BB2 during this battle, Giddings took center stage. Certainly, it was the highlight of BB2. It completely stalled the Bash for nearly a month. Some even claim the Giddings battle was the direct result of the Interferance game update, since Kevan's zom Bub was present during the siege. The interferance update was added a few weeks into the Giddings siege and was debatably directly responsible for the beachhead leading to the end of the battle. However you feel about the documented accounting of the battle, I think its a no-brainer for Historical Events. ~Vsig.png 19:46, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

For (Battle of Pitneybank)

  1. See above. ~Vsig.png 19:46, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
  2. For - And I added the Historical Group Voting template to the page. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 20:42, 4 August 2012 (BST)

Against (Battle of Pitneybank)

    • Nope At was frequently stated over the course of the articles talk page most of the information placed there is wrong and was done in an attempt to spin the happenings in a survivor weighted PoV. This is one of like three articles this particular user wrote in this attempt. iirc. Read the talk page, it covers EVERYTHING that justifies this article being burned in a fire and forever forgotten about. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 22:44, 4 August 2012 (BST)
      • I did read the talk page and I agree that the article is horribly written but does that mean we should throw out the in-game event completely because of it? Why not rewrite the article? Or write a different less POV article? I thought the purpose of this category was to nominate major events in the game's history. I think this qualifies. How many other events had a game changing mechanic mid-siege that could potentially be tied to Kevan acting directly as a result thereof? Not many.~Vsig.png 01:29, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
        • Since an historical article is protected, it should be rewritten before this stage. Everyone will probably agree that the in-game event has some historical significance. The problem is the out-of game description sucks, which means that anyone reading the event is going to come away with the wrong impression regarding the event and game, and think we are completely stoned and drunk for voting this monstrosity in.-MHSstaff 02:15, 5 August 2012 (BST)
  1. As Karek. The event itself is noteworthy, the article itself, not so much. Although the talk page is absolutely hilarious. -MHSstaff 23:19, 4 August 2012 (BST)
  2. nope as Karekey
  3. As Karek. The event itself, I'd say was historical. That page, however, is awful. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 23:55, 4 August 2012 (BST)
  4. Nominate the talk page. What are the other articles Kark? --RossWHO????ness 00:17, 5 August 2012 (BST)
  5. The event was definitely historical. This account does not match what happened there, however. Write a new account of the event (this one is beyond saving, since even the "Bashing Back" part of its title is POV), then resubmit. Aichon 03:03, 5 August 2012 (BST)
  6. Historical Event, but a dreadful article that needs to be rewritten before the status is conferred. We already have dreadfully biased articles that should be removed from the category. Let's not add to them. --Papa Moloch 03:09, 5 August 2012 (BST)

Battle of the Bear Pit

Currently not listed due to the lack of a single vote. This was last put to a vote when the events voting process was new and few users were aware of it and was never put back up for a vote even though it's failure was due only to the minimum votes rule. Time to fix this travesty. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 14:55, 25 June 2011 (BST)

For(Bear Pit)

  1. Speaks for itself.--Karekmaps 2.0?! 14:55, 25 June 2011 (BST)

  3. Damn u Ron Burgundy --hagnat 15:19, 25 June 2011 (BST)
  4. You know, when you join a game in 2009, and yet have heard about an event from 2006, you know it must have been HUGE. -- Spiderzed 16:16, 25 June 2011 (BST)
  5. Part of why the Abattoir should be historical as well. -MHSstaff 20:35, 25 June 2011 (BST)
  6. Yep. Aichon 21:21, 25 June 2011 (BST)
  7. YES. my first action under the C4NT banner.-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 23:40, 25 June 2011 (bst)

  9. Asheets 16:37, 27 June 2011 (BST)
  10. I immediately regret this decision. --Rosslessness 16:40, 27 June 2011 (BST)

  13. My tenure in UD has thus far been short, but this was one of the first articles I read. Epic. Wish the community still had this type of activity left in them. --Mightymonkeytoe 14:11, 29 June 2011 (BST)
  14. Make it so. Nothing to be done! 11:41, 1 July 2011 (BST)

Against(Bear Pit)

  1. Nah... it was more famous in post event litigation.--THE Godfather of Яesensitized, Anime Sucks Yalk | W! U! WMM| CC CPFOAS DORISFlag.jpg LOE ZHU | Яezzens 18:02, 30 June 2011 (BST)

Secondary list of chronological order?

Any votes against the creation of a timeline below the alphabetically ordered list of historical events? I'd list the events along with the dates they ran. I just think it'd provide for a more reasonable reading of this page, and world lore. Jeffool 10:55, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

On a Category page nothing can go below the alphabetical list, however, if anyone is interested in making something like this it could be useful, although I think one might already exist somewhere. And I found it Timeline--Karekmaps?! 13:03, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
Although it looks like that needs much reworking.--Karekmaps?! 13:04, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
