Election

So, canvassing and intimidation are working fairly well. We should make a campaign promise to PK everyone who votes against us, whaddaya think? ;) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 13:11, 3 July 2010 (BST)

My Vote

In the mayor election is very much up for grabs. Best offer between you and Kyle gets it.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 16:42, 4 July 2010 (BST)

There is no div mask over the + button. I use IE.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 17:25, 4 July 2010 (BST)
This makes Mis sad. He spent far too long delicately adjusting the position of it by trial and error. :( The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 17:28, 4 July 2010 (BST)
Also, with compatibility mode, it's too far to the left. :P I'll vote for you if you give me Home Secretary of Malton, without the silly signature thing. I care far more for titles than I do for a ranking list.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 17:29, 4 July 2010 (BST)
Deal. I also expect you to sort out housing issues. That's what home secretaries do right? The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 17:30, 4 July 2010 (BST)
Nope, Immigration. So, realistically, I'll have a pretty cushy job. Now, the election decides whether my title is Home Secretary or Shadow Home Secretary.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 17:31, 4 July 2010 (BST)

If Misanthropy loses the election, Yonnua Koponen shall change the links in this template so that they link on the first two names, and not on Axe Hack.

You and Axe Hack shall be forced to link to the Chilean Blob in their signatures and you will both create e-penis templates and present these templates to Giles on his talk page in a timely manner not to exceed 4 (four) days. Additionally they will be banned from commenting on each others talk pages for a period of 1 (one) day, effective immediatly. - Poodle of Doom 23:55, 4 July 2010 (BST)

Tried to post a comment via the standard wiki talk page interface but found myself unable to. I believe this constitutes your 1 week's notice. ;) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 06:36, 10 July 2010 (BST)

He actually asked about it in advance and I think the consensus was that people were either indifferent or okay with it, given that the + shouldn't be used if you want to follow the guidelines of his page. Aichon 08:24, 10 July 2010 (BST)
Page guidelines are of debatable enforceability, especially compared to breaking wiki functionality, and the reason I noticed was because it's actually always present even when you scroll down and thus obscures page elements further down the page.
I'm not overly fussed about this one compared to others, just wanted to make sure – and it's a good thing he checked first (though I will read your link to see what exactly the arguments were ;)). That said, there are a few about that are definitely nowhere near as benign as this, and I intend to attempt to eradicate them where I see them. :D Cheers! ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 08:42, 10 July 2010 (BST)
Hmm...I hadn't noticed the scrolling issue previously, but you're completely correct. And definitely read the link! As for enforceability, that wasn't what I was getting at. I was citing that as his "pressing reason" for doing it, which would give him the reason he needed to break wiki functionality, as you put it. Plus, later versions of wiki software allow you to remove that link outright, so if the wiki were upgraded, this would be a non-issue since it's a feature of the software itself.

ZOMG IMPERSONAYSHUN!!1 :P
I knew it did that, but at the same time, it's always right at the top where you should have already read by the time you've scrolled enough for it to obscure it. I don't know how to block the "+" any other way though. Also you seem to have the same problem I used to - your sig totally doesn't look like it does in your image when I view it, it's just plain text. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 21:42, 10 July 2010 (BST)
I see his sig as is, but with slightly less fancy font.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:46, 10 July 2010 (BST)
You don't have the right fancy fonts installed, so it's falling back to defaults. Also, given that it's covering my sig, is it technically impersonation? :P ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 21:50, 10 July 2010 (BST)
I have this problem with the majority of these previous sigs. What font is it meant to be? The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 21:52, 10 July 2010 (BST)

Apparently you lack the Cochin font as well, so you're falling back on Arial for my sig. Cochin comes standard with Office, I thought, but I may very well be incorrect about that. It makes a BIG difference in how mine appears though. Arial is so heavy-handed compared to the elegance of Cochin. Aichon 03:52, 11 July 2010 (BST)

yo yo yo , I wanted to clear up what i'd said on a/bp cause I didn't want you thinking i consider you a bad ssyop. I vote aichon and i said you let personal opinions override your better judgement as an op, I hope you don't take this personally. I don't meant you're a bad op, in fact, I think you're one of the best at the moment, particularly your presence in the entire place, if only we'd had that back in early 09. Either way, don't take what I said personally plz, it's only a critical analysis of the ops and while I maintain what I said it true I don't expect you to consider it a bad form, off hand comment. Just a heads up that I do respect you, especially knowing that at my worst I'm not any better. Or any soberere.

'Play Dead (and Invisible)'

I've typed up an even more elaborate version of my 'Play Dead' tactic for PKers/death cultists (see here), that goes beyond the obvious application for those types of characters (which would be to 'Play Dead' outside the nearest entry point to the target, for AP efficiency reasons, I suppose).

Exactly. You can be done in just a few minutes with dozens and dozens of pages. Of course, if you supply a reason for deletion, even a c/p one, it takes longer since that involves an extra mouse move per deletion, which adds a surprising amount of additional time. Aichon 11:46, 26 July 2010 (BST)
That explains the speed. I was manually mousing "delete", "delete", "close tab", rinse and repeat. Fucking shortuctters. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 17:42, 26 July 2010 (BST)

A question

Greetings, oh once and future Mayor, er...once and briefly Mayor...er....well. Ahem. Anyway-I have a question. I happened to run across a new player who is forming a fledgling zombie group and he asked me so I thought I might forward it to you (since I am a lotech luddite with the keyboarding skills of a trained chimp) To wit and I quote: "Thank you! Yes, my son explained the alt-abuse thing to me after the first weekend of playing. I try to keep all my alts in separate areas. I have one each of the four basic classes, but I've only made character pages for three so far. How do I add my Menagerie group page to the list of groups? I tried to edit the Zombie Groups page to add the link, but when I click edit, I only see the first couple of sentences for the page, not any of the alphabetized link lists.--scubamatt 17:41, 27 July 2010 (BST) Hmmm-that is a good question!

Discussion

Thoughts on this? The precedent would be this if it was Misconduct.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 17:40, 6 August 2010 (BST)

I noticed it as well. You're not suppose to edit a protected page unless it's a necessary administrative edit, otherwise it's abuse of sysops power. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 17:54, 6 August 2010 (BST)
You agree? I'm thinking of taking it to A/M, pending Mis' response here.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 17:55, 6 August 2010 (BST)
Technically? Yeah, you have a case if you ask me. In the spirit of the rules it's misconduct. But, it may very well be a mistake. I don't know exactly how it works as a sysops, but maybe he didn't realize it was protected and thus it was an accident. But even on purpose, it's slap on the wrist/soft warning material considering the content, though actual misconduct if you're strict. In my opinion. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 18:13, 6 August 2010 (BST)
Well, that's why I'm asking his opinion. When you edit a protected page, a giant red notice appears, so mistakes are unlikely, but even if it was, in the SA precedent I linked he claimed it was a mistake.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 18:32, 6 August 2010 (BST)
I'm aware SA claimed it as a mistake, that's why I left that accident option open. I didn't know about red notice your talking about, though it still leaves the option he didn't know it wasn't allowed. Which is the most likely case scenario here then, unless he knew it wasn't allowed, but Mis is better than that so I doubt it. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 18:38, 6 August 2010 (BST)
I actually didn't notice it being protected at the time, I was just responding to Poodle. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 21:59, 6 August 2010 (BST)
There's also a difference in the nature of the posts. After all, calling them a penis is not exactly the same as writing a frowny face. Aichon 22:01, 6 August 2010 (BST)
Both are trolling comments which were unnecessary. However, Mis has a history of making stupid errors when posting (e.g. newbie welcomes on user pages instead of talks) so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt with this one.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 22:06, 6 August 2010 (BST)

I wasn't trolling this time (and you know I'd admit if I was). I was genuinely dismayed at losing a valuable laughing stock and wanted Poodle to know I wasn't just kidding about it. And i r not stoopid. :( The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 22:08, 6 August 2010 (BST)
Minus the part about Poodle, that's how I read it, especially given your vote in the permaban and the comment with it. Aichon 22:22, 6 August 2010 (BST)
Still, if he'd known it was protected, it would be misconduct, and that's the important thing.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 22:23, 6 August 2010 (BST)
Hey now, why do get the live grenade/hot potato thrown into my hands? I don't and didn't have the intention of bringing this to misconduct, merely stating that it could be brought. Personally speaking, nothing more then soft warning, and not worthy of true misconduct. Dealing with this through his talk page is best and that's what happened. @Aichon, trolling or not, it was unnecessary and therefore abuse whether intentional or not. Also, the edit in question should probably be reverted if it hasn't been already. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 22:28, 6 August 2010 (BST)
Edit conflicted.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 22:28, 6 August 2010 (BST)
I figured that would be your opinion, I was just informing you that I had no intention of bringing it, and that if you did, you'd still have a case if you wanted to.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 22:30, 6 August 2010 (BST)
Oh, I agree that it was not right for him to post it, don't get me wrong, and I briefly considered A/Ming him over it as well, before deciding it wasn't worth it (it wasn't until later that I saw this stuff here). As you said, soft warning is all that's really necessary. And yeah, it should be reverted...off to do that. Aichon 23:00, 6 August 2010 (BST)

Help

The Group Box on our group page now looks pretty messed up. You'll notice it immediately. Can you help me make it look a little more normal? - Poodle of Doom 17:59, 8 August 2010 (BST)

I've had a look and I can't see an easy fix for it. If you'd like I could manually code the box with alterations to make it fit better, as it seems the problem is due to the cells being equally spaced instead of skewed to one side as would be preferred. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 18:04, 8 August 2010 (BST)
Yeah,... I'm okay with that. To be honest, I tried to steal the code from the Groupbox Template, to manually edit it,... but couldn't make heads or tails of the sizing and spacing, or where it was even at in the code. I figured I'd just screw it up and make it worse, so instead of screwing around for 15 to 20 minutes, just to hit the same brick wall, I just cut my losses and asked for help. If you're up to giving me the code, I'd be happy to implement it, and if it works the way I like, I'll create a new group template for that spot. - Poodle of Doom 18:09, 8 August 2010 (BST)

No, because it isn't a creative medium. It's limited precisely by the designer of the hard and software available. Therefore there are a precise number of designs and circumstances.

Umm, no? Not even slightly? Intellectual property doesn't refer to a format widely used on an internet wiki, and what's more:
The World Intellectual Property Organisation said:
Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind: inventions, literary and artistic works, and symbols, names, images, and designs used in commerce.
Notice the most important part? I'll try again.

How exactly is he obtaining money from the usage of this page?

Strange, then, how both ipo.gov.uk (cf unregistered community design) and everything else I'm turning up explicitly state that design falls under the criteria, and mentions nothing about the sole use in commerce. As it stands, we either comb through every piece of UK law to find what applies here (and I'm leaning towards what I'm getting on ipo.gov.uk), or we follow the disclaimer on every edit box on the wiki, which reads: "You are also promising us that you wrote this yourself, or copied it from a public domain or similar free resource", something obviously not the case here. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 22:03, 10 August 2010 (BST)

WIPO. Also, the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, Britain's source of copyright law, says that "Names, titles, short phrases and colours are not generally considered unique or substantial enough to be covered". As it stands, the only similarities are that the page is black, has red text, a red border, and an image at the top. Wow, it must be stolen. And since that is the actual law, of this country, it's pretty definite. Or we go by international law as per my other link. The wiki text was not written by any legal professional, so that's a pathetically weak argument.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 22:08, 10 August 2010 (BST)

and I shouldn't have to explain this to you, but a statute kind of takes more importance than some sketchy government website. You know, it being the law and all, and that website being made by some dopey civil servant.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 22:14, 10 August 2010 (BST)
A 1988 statute can hardly be expected to cover a situation dealing with technology unconceivable at the time and can hardly be considered an exhaustive list. Position listed states:
"S1(2) of the Registered Designs Act 1949 defines a design as “the appearance of the whole or part of a product resulting from the features of, in particular, the lines, contours, colours, shape, texture or materials of the product or its ornamentation”.
The “product” you have designed can be anything such as an industrial or handicraft item (other than a computer program), and, in particular, can include things like packaging, get-up, graphic symbols, typographic typefaces, and parts of products intended to be assembled into a more complex product."
Which seems to me to cover what's going on here, applying the general limitations as opposed to a limited list of specifics compiled before this situation could ever have been conceived of by anyone. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 22:20, 10 August 2010 (BST)
well you yourself rendered that useless by starting your post with:
Misanthropy said:

and then using a 1949 statute. The CDPA88 was ammended in 92 to include computer programs and only programs. Anything e;se is superfluous.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 22:23, 10 August 2010 (BST)

You didn't read what I said at all did you. My only point about the statute's age was the limitations that posed on its position as an exhaustive list, so I then provided a statute which gave a broader scope and didn't try to limit itself to quickly-dating exhaustive listing.

I did know that. :P Also I was meaning if one of you had made the redirects, you would have had more of a say in just reverting them.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 23:12, 10 August 2010 (BST)
You're both wrong. Redirect rights have little to do with who made them. If I wanted to, right now I could have EVIL unprotected and made a disambig, regardless of the hundreds of links Doodle has thrown at it under the guise of his own group, and regardless of him making it, because regardless of all that effort, it's not his group and it's an abbreviation for a now multiple used term. Regarding Thad, he does have a right to some of them, if the likely search string is more directed at that group's name. Hence why I reverted his redirects that were closer to your Umbrella, and left the ones closer to his. -- 04:50, 11 August 2010 (BST)

*Adding my 2¢* From what I understand of American law (and no, I'm not suggesting it applies across the pond; I'm merely offering another take on the matter), usually designs can be patented and trademarked, not copyrighted, though artwork involved in a design, such as icons, backgrounds, textures, etc. can be copyrighted. Even when you're patenting a design, however, you usually just patent the layout. You can also apply trademark to it, however, as was seen when T-Mobile either issued a C&D or sued, I believe, Engadget a few years back because Engadget's mobile tech blog was using a color of pink that they thought was too similar to their own trademark shade of pink. That said, patents and trademarks must be filed in order to be enforceable, and with copyrights, while they are enforceable immediately upon the artwork's creation, unless they're registered with your local copyright office, the most you can do is issue a C&D. You can't even file for any damages until they're registered. Also, you both are idiots for arguing about it so much. Aichon 03:54, 11 August 2010 (BST)

"artwork involved in a design, such as icons, backgrounds, textures, etc." are the only things applicable in British law. Read links above.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 10:11, 11 August 2010 (BST)
Not true. As your own links say, there are plenty of other forms of intellectual property which are not covered under copyright yet still receive protections in other forms (e.g. patents and trademarks), and they give examples as well. Almost all of your discussion above revolved around copyrights and examples for them. I was saying that even though copyright may not apply to designs, patents or trademarks still might, and I haven't seen anything in your links that disagrees with that assertion. In fact, from what I can tell, UK law (as US law) is one of the few that currently upholds software patents, which would be a basis for this sort of thing. Again though, as I said, patents and trademarks wouldn't matter here anyway, since none were filed or registered. Copyright is the only one that provides an automatic protection on the work, and we all agree that it doesn't apply to the design, regardless of which country's law you're using. Aichon 10:31, 11 August 2010 (BST)
I may be mistaken, but I think the 92 act is the last relevant act for the three. If it doesn't say anything about it, it's probably allowed. Either way, it's a contentious issue which could probably be argued either way in court.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 10:37, 11 August 2010 (BST)
Plus, there's a big difference from what you and I might read out of the books, and what skilled lawyers have already read out of them, argued, and gotten put into practice in common law countries such as ours. I prefer going to sites such as Wikipedia for their synopsis of how some of these laws are actually being practiced today. Aichon 11:02, 11 August 2010 (BST)

Thought you'd like to know

It looks like your sig might be one of the ones causing issues for A/VB (the current month's archive isn't showing up on it since it has too much inclusion data), since it's a decent amount larger than the norm. This isn't a warning to fix it or anything of the sort, merely a friendly notification, since I figured you'd want to be aware of something like this. What you do with this info is your call. My best guess is that it's the images causing the issues, since the other big culprit was DDR's sig with the arrow images in it. Aichon 06:44, 30 August 2010 (BST)

Have you seen this yet? Check the code for it. I've designed it from the ground up to be modifiable by anyone without needing any extra templates or anything (and the template that generates it all is actually remarkably light). Basically, anyone can create as many styles as they want, name them whatever they want, and then can apply them to whichever suburbs they want. They can also stylize the entire table however they want (though it has some preset defaults), and they can nest it into tables or divs however they want so that it fits on the page better. Basically, it could probably be used as a replacement for pretty much every minimap of the city that has ever existed or ever will on the wiki.

Well, I already told Mis that if I won it, I'd be giving the best zombie award to my horde (that is, BB3 as I'd sooner disassociate MOB from a PKer award ceremony,) but I really just wanted to know if there was a way of announcing this. I'm kind of stumped as to where or indeed whether it would be appropriate on the page. I've just announced it in #BB3 and given the zombies there permission to use the template, incidentally. I may not be able to make it to a ceremony, so Mis, if you're planning on doing one, do ya think you could you make a note about the donation during the broadcast? That would be ahzam, ta. --Amber Waves of Pain 10:23, 15 September 2010 (BST)
Currently dead in Dartside after testing Bellow some more. I'll try to make it up. Amber, you can also edit the front page of the awards page to show that you've given it to BB3, the page is just another public one.

If you don't get revived before making it to Lukinswood just stand at the cemetery 22,46 and put a revive request on CORAM's talk page and we'll get you. The queue was emptied a few days ago so should be no wait right now.--~Vsig.png 19:19, 16 September 2010 (BST)

I would totally do that but I'm afraid I'm at -8AP due to that last bellowing. If you can hold off 4 more hours I'll do it, though. ~Vsig.png 00:02, 15 September 2010 (BST)

Sure thing. Hit me up here or on IRC and I'll get it done. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 00:03, 15 September 2010 (BST)
Alright, will do. Is there a specific channel you use? ~Vsig.png 00:10, 15 September 2010 (BST)
I'm in both the wiki ones, but you can just use /query Misanthropy to message me directly. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 00:12, 15 September 2010 (BST)

I just realized I never asked if you were interested. But if you are, would you like to suggest some stuff for the forum? I know it could use some work, but I'm now drained of ideas... =/ --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 02:11, 15 September 2010 (BST)

I might sign up in the morning, but I disagree with the principal of the thing. I'm all for bringing the balancing in favour of the dead, rather than keeping it on an even keel, you see. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 02:13, 15 September 2010 (BST)
Well, I'm still on a steady debate in my mind what the proper population balance would be. I have 50/50, 45/55, and 40/60 in mind so far... --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 02:20, 15 September 2010 (BST)
99/1. For realism. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 22:20, 15 September 2010 (BST)
That might be great for realism, but we all know unless Malton gets rid of the NecroTechs, that's not happening. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 22:39, 15 September 2010 (BST)
It's totally possible. Just needs careful planning. Look at the big zombie hordes. If they thinned a bit they'd cover more ground without much overall loss in anything but speed. If the balance of actual players and not just mrh-cow padding was to change, it'd be easily concievable. The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new 22:51, 15 September 2010 (BST)
It's the speed that makes them so deadly, since they can wipe out infrastructure before repairs can take place. Spread them out and they move slowly enough that repairs happen right after they leave. It is possible, though, I think, to get, say, 70-30 with the current hordes fairly easily, if they just coordinated their efforts and moved in specific patterns. There are certain strategies that apply to horde movement which have significant impact on survivor populations (e.g. go in a spiral towards the middle to cause maximum damage, devastate everything around a survivor stronghold to retard reinforcement efforts, double back over recent repairs to ruin reinforcements and break morale). BB3 actually recently did that first one, which is a large part of why the entire Northwest got ruined recently. MOB did the same thing around Christmas time last year, which resulted in the SE getting wrecked, and both RRF and MOB had devastated the Pitneybank area right before that (i.e. point #2), which utterly gutted the survivor's strongest point in the eastern half of the city, leading to revive queues that were lasting for weeks. If they coordinated a bit to cut off lines of reinforcement and moved quickly, RRF, MOB, and BB3 could eat the city alive, but they'd never do it, and it's for the best of the game that they don't. Aichon 06:08, 16 September 2010 (BST)
Oh I'm not saying thinning the crowd out too much, obviously. But the three major hordes (four if you want to count BB3 but it'll not be around forever), if working in unison, could easily tackle 4-5 suburbs at a time, rather than 3, which gives a 33% raise in the actual area being attacked at a given time. It's also a case of logistics if the smaller hordes were to get on board, having the smaller hordes attacking areas with a lower block:building ratio, or building:TRP ratio, and especially targetting the SW-2 district with a concerted, but small, rotter contingent (one NT for the district can easily be pinataed, then camped in by more angry rotters than can be readily dealt with by a relief force that's being worn down through revive deprivation). Active co-operation between the hordes and the larger PKer groups could easily lead to a quicker demise, as the ability to scout inside, and clear TRPs quickly from the inside (especially the ever-contested forts and malls) only accelerates things. Of course, this is a game of ego more than anything else, and that level of co-operation is beyond reaching, so it's pretty much going to boil down to whichever side has the more tenacious players - give it two to three years, and I'd say the zombies, with players who average out to be much more thick-skinned about the whole thing, will be much more dominant.
