Thank you.

Before you told me i did the signing manually but this is way easier so thank you. --Chasval (talk) 16:03, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Certainly! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 17:38, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, Bob, for the welcome and the tip. I most certainly appreciate the help as I am new. Will likely be using your pages and assistance to help both myself and the Wiki grow! --Alexander Brock (talk) 19:34, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Edit Speed

Hi bob, just wondering how long it takes for my edits to actually change the site. --Desert Roamer (talk) 22:34, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Hey Desert Roamer, your edits should be instantaneous. Sometimes if high-traffic pages are edited they may take a minute or so. But nothing short of "practically" instant. THE CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER 11:20, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
There's also a layer of "percolation". If you edit e.g. a suburb DangerStatus, it can take one to ten minutes for it to change the actual map on the Suburb page, for example, depending on the length of the job queue. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 16:06, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Update suburb danger level

Hey Bob, I updated Lockettside's danger level, it shows on the lockettside page but it is not (yet?) reflected on the city map page. Is this normal or did I do it wrong?--EasyDinner (talk) 19:58, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

EDIT; I just read the comment above, guess that answers my question ;D --EasyDinner (talk) 20:00, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

Yup, it can take a few minutes for changes on one page to propagate to other pages. If you want to speed things along, there is a trick you can do: go to the page you want to see updated (e.g. City Map), edit it, and then save it without making any changes. Doing so won't actually change the page's content at all, but it will force that page to refresh any content that it gets from elsewhere. ;) Aichon 20:16, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

Spelling mistake at creation of page

Hi Bob, I made a mistake in the title of my page and would like to change it. I'm probably looking for a tab that says 'move' but I am unable to find it.--EasyDinner (talk) 09:52, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Hey EasyDinner, only sysops can move pages I'm afraid. Could you tell me what page you'd like it to be moved to? I could do it right now for you. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION 09:56, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Hello DanceDanceRevolution, I created Clan of the Wooly Rhinoceros but it should be Clan of the Woolly Rhinoceros --EasyDinner (talk) 10:09, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
No problem ED. I've moved the page over. The old page also now redirects to the new one too. May your Rhinoceri remain Woolly. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION 10:23, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks a million, I'll be more careful in the future :) --EasyDinner (talk) 10:34, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
As long as you're creating you can be as careless as you want! We'll be there to help out if things go wrong. Good luck! DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION 10:39, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Hi Easy, and thanks DDR! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 13:44, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you

Thanks for the welcome ! Sorry I’m not too savvy yet on the wiki I’m still trying to figure it all out.

Sure thing! You'll get the hang of it soon enough. ^_^ Bob Moncrief EBDW! 12:03, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

Most linked to page

You just need like 2000 more links! :D -- SomethingSomething.gif 09:56, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

The main problem is that my various signatures link to other pages, so those get boosted too. Makes it hard to pass Project Welcome when I keep linking to it. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 12:09, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
Also, unfortunately, a few of those links aren't permanent if they are on Dangerreport updates. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION 22:12, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
Too true! My throne lies upon a house of cards. Although that is a sig race strategy in itself, since one DangerUpdate gets your sig onto 3 or more pages. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 22:16, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
That’s super clever... you sneaky thing. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION 22:28, 4 January 2019 (UTC)


Thanks for the welcome. I did have one question as I'm new to editing wiki. Is there a delay between updating the status on the User:DangerReport/LOCATION pages and the actual status on the main location page showing the update? I updated two danger reports yesterday and I ended up dumping my cache for the last 24 hrs to see if it would show the updates on the main as they weren't showing any immediate difference. It shows on one now, but not the other page. Sidicious (talk) 19:08, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

Replied on your talk page. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 20:46, 21 December 2018 (UTC)


Thanks for the welcome Bob, I actually played UD a while back and me and my friends are just getting back into it. We're thinking about scoping out Fort Creedy and working on it slowly but surely. We're not sure if we'll base ourselves out of Pegton or Edgecombe but I figured I have AP so I'd update the Danger Map as much as possible while I'm at it. AsukaUnit-02 Pilot 19:56, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Sure thing! Creedy can be a dangerous place, so be prepared for a fight. But I'm sure you know that! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 21:55, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

Extreme repair

That clusters done. Whats next? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:26, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
