Update

There will be no actual definitive number for this, and also I'll try to update one character a day. --Rosslessness 18:56, 12 July 2012 (BST)

A CLARIFICATION

This list is more about ingame characters, than wiki mastering superfools. --RossWHO????ness 08:09, 14 July 2012 (BST)

Title Change

Suggested title change: "Zombie Players Are Better Than Everyone". Seriously, how much can that green zombie wang get polished before it falls off? -- ™ & © Amazing, INC. All rights reserved. Replying constitutes acceptance of our Terms of Service. 03:16, 15 September 2012 (BST)

Maybe if survivor players pulled the lead out and made a difference beyond relying on their imbalance to carry the day. :/ When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 03:17, 15 September 2012 (BST)
Back in the day, harman players were routinely laughed and bullied off the Wiki, which is a tremendous tool. WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M A TREMENDOUS TOOL? I'm sure that's not the way it's been the entire time... has it? Zombie players carry around broken dollies, gangbang grandma, all this cutesy-poo "I'm an undead!" stuff, but ANY semblance of character dev by harman players was almost immediately Trenchcoating, deserving of griefing, PKing, and harrassment on the wiki, etc. Honestly, the PKers and Zombie players got an early hold on the resource and its power positions, and the game suffered for it. Not everyone wants to emulate a Will Farrel jester for the amusement of the populace. -- ™ & © Amazing, INC. All rights reserved.

More talking - I got the lead out and made a big difference. Everything I attempted, however, was shat on by the griefers, PKers, and zeds. Tactics to counter zombie tactics were decried as horrible nazi atrocities, etc. So I stopped playing. I guarantee you other survivor players who 'got the lead out' and saw how useless it was did the same. It's a PoV cancer around here. -- ™ & © Amazing, INC. All rights reserved.

Actually, I stopped playing UD after I couldn't use the Wiki resource for group information (linked from ingame, remember) and the like. Sorry - troll fail. :D -- ™ & © Amazing, INC. All rights reserved. Replying constitutes acceptance of our Terms of Service. 06:03, 15 September 2012 (BST)

It's funny cause it's still so damn wrong after all of these years. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 04:42, 15 September 2012 (BST)
What's actually funny is you're still just as ignorant. Hey, don't let the state of reality... the total baisness of this entire site against human players, etc... change your absolutely unquestionable PoV. When you're one of the folks making things shit for people you disagree with, it's plenty easy to be fooled into thinking you're just "right". My games fail for a ton of reasons, UD fails because folks like yourself want to make things shitty for anyone who isn't in your clique.

The proof is in the pudding, by the way. This was a simple convo with opposing viewpoints stemming from a comment about someone's meaningless list in their Userspace. Suddenly, it turned around into actually being about me. Do me a favor and mentally pinpoint the moment the topic went from this silly list to how much I suck. -- ™ & © Amazing, INC.

Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm not) but you were the one who turned it personal by contrasting your own "achievements" with my broad comments; and now you're upset that you did it and it didn't go well. Clap clap. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 08:13, 15 September 2012 (BST)
I'll correct you since you're wrong. Let's explore this in the simplist terms.

You're Reply 2, and you made it personal. You could've easily related your own contrasting opinion or experience on the matter, but instead you just went for the cliché response. "LOL RAGEQUIT".

Hate to put my head in the sarlacs mouth here, but any nom-nom-nominations for survivors would be greatly appreciated. --I'm not the Ross UDWiki needs, I'm the Ross it deserves. 08:06, 15 September 2012 (BST)

I'll probably wait for the rules that apply to human characters, since the current guidelines don't seem to apply. This is only half-pissy.

Immediate Stuff on Persons of Note

Greetings dear wiki friend. Simply put this is my attempt at creating a who's who of Urban Dead, and as such I'm looking for 20 or 30 characters who have had a lasting impact on UD.

The page itself is protected, but feel free to add nominations below.

Other than that, I'll add stuff as people convince me. Userspace and all that.

Cheers --Rosslessness 18:41, 11 July 2012 (BST)

Suggested format for Entries

==Ron Burgundy== [[File:RonDrag.jpg|right|thumb|Ron Burgundy ]] Ron Burgundy ([http://www.urbandead.com/profile.cgi?id=26370 profile link]) was the leader of the [[Channel 4 News Team]]. He helped lead them into glorious battle on numerous occasions, including the infamous [[Battle of the Bear Pit]] and [[Battle of Blackmore]]. Ron participated in the [[First Siege of Caiger Mall]], and indeed almost every historical event prior to his retirement in 2008. His love of [[Suggestion:20071110_Pac_Man_in_Malton!|PacMan]] is well recorded, as well as scotch. Legend suggests his final resting place is somewhere in [[Ackland Mall]] [[User:Ron Burgundy|This link]] should tell you more about Ron.

Bump

There's talk happening over at Category talk:Historical Groups#TX. See list there for ideas. Or, ya know just continue discussing it here. ~Vsig.png 18:26, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Qualifications?

Just wondering what would qualify a person to be noted here? :) -- Johnny Twotoes 22:37, 10 July 2012 (BST)

suggestions, really. Its not a hard and fast list. --Rosslessness 22:48, 10 July 2012 (BST)
I nominate Johnny Twotoes! Dude's been playing for over a week now. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 23:28, 10 July 2012 (BST)

PKers / Bounty Hunters

Any thoughts on entries for that?
As a general thing, game mechanics make it so that only survivors and zombies really have an impact on a suburb, while the contributions of PKers and BHers are small and short-lived (cheap revives, no AP draining by meatshielding/ruining etc.) Still, "the third side" is a popular and distinctive feature of UD, so it should have at least a couple of token entries. Sirens could be a good pick (founder of Red Rum, the biggest and most important PKer group of long term), as could be one of the founders of the Philosophe Knights (who have definitively put their very own spin on the whole PKing business, and have been doing that for a long time now). As for BHers, no real idea for singling anyone out. -- Spiderzed 19:05, 11 July 2012 (BST)

Its a fair cop, and as someone who doesnt involve this facet of the game, one I'll need most help on. --Rosslessness 19:10, 11 July 2012 (BST)
Sirens and Karloth would be good examples of noteworthy pkers. Particularly that are known around the rest of the game. Sirens is less notable for a number of reasons related to meta-drama and relative quietness for years. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 21:15, 11 July 2012 (BST)
Thanks. Only thing left after that to look at is the big fish in the small ponds. --Rosslessness 21:43, 11 July 2012 (BST)

Bob Hammero, Jimbo Bob, Anton Howard...Hail ASS! :D --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 01:41, 12 July 2012 (BST)
Canderous Ordo (for causing DORIS to transform from a random collection of people with Resenz Forum sigs into the PKer equivalent of the Freemasons, and using this as the basis for some massive PKer events/wars.)
And now the names of all the Philosophe Knights who've had an effect on this game:
...
There are a tiny, tiny handful of people who've played this game with enough effort, outreach, time, and sheer dumb luck to have an actual lasting effect on more than 10 people at a time. The Founders of the PK? You can't even put a name to any of them without research. Seriously, folks. You guys are scraping the bottom of the barrel with a lot of these 'notable' people. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 05:40, 13 July 2012 (BST)
Yeah, pretty much that. Though I'm not sure Canderous would make my list, DORIS as a group, sure. Canderous individually maybe not. If I had to list any Sonny identity it would be either Sonny Corleone or his pre-RRF survivor(this one is the more likely of the two). --Karekmaps 2.0?! 06:11, 13 July 2012 (BST)

Oh, can I nominate myself? I revitalized the Malton Manhunt with my own strings of events that bought the community together for a glorious fun time of killing each other for sport. It was my events that bought the Manhunt era into it's golden age, after all. :P --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 04:20, 12 July 2012 (BST)

Blanemcc is a PKer. It's a fact. Some dudes sprayed it all over Malton that one time. In all seriousness though, you'd be looking at the likes of Sonny/Canderous, Karloth Vois, Eugenie, Vandr possibly (notably for WPKU) and any number of Rummers. --Blanemcc 13:40, 24 July 2012 (BST)
Blanemcc is a PKer has got to be one of the more successful UD memes, it is true… also, do not forget Zaruthustra. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 15:33, 25 July 2012 (BST)
I wouldn't put Eugenie or Vandr on there. As far as PKers go, I'd stick with Sirens, Karloth and Kyle. Also, maybe the original Pathetic Bill (although the case is there that the Bills as a group amount to far more than the individual).--Papa Moloch 19:14, 25 July 2012 (BST)
Wish I knew who did it. Was it all a coordinated campaign, or did everyone jump on the bandwagon? I digress.... --Blanemcc 15:40, 25 July 2012 (BST)

I would imagine

...if you are doing just 30 you will need to be conservative but I would think that Jensonson and Bullgod should make the cut. On the more debatable side, I might suggest Josh Clark and Leon Silverblood. Josh's merits were discussed by many in the recent group vote. Leon would be more controversial. He has a lot of detractors, but like him or not, he has been around for a long time and had his fingers in a lot of pies. He is a case of someone who is more known in game than on the wiki I think. DJ talent might also fit for notoriety in his field as would Hibernaculum. --Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Thursday, 12 July 2012

Josh Clark and Bullgod, yes. Jensonson, maybe. The others, nope. Is there something you can point me to that would explain their inclusion? --Open the Box Org XIII Alts 04:11, 12 July 2012 (BST)
Never heard of any of them other than Bullgod, who certainly deserves a place. --WanYao 09:24, 12 July 2012 (BST)
Rationale for these is similar to that provided for Duke D'oeuvre below. If they are persons of note, I would think it would be more useful if they were still active. Otherwise they are points of historical reference rather than a who's who of who you might meet. Historic accounts like Josh or Bullgod are only relevant for their legacy. Still relevant but I would say less so than those like bub who still crop up from time to time or those like Leon who have remained constantly active. As below, if this is not what this list is trying to do, let me know and I will stop. I would prefer for that to come from Ross though as it is his list.--Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Saturday, 14 July 2012
leon are you fucking kidding me?-- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 22:31, 12 July 2012
Harrison, are you a real person or a bot that randomly generates irrelevant statements and outrage? I wonder sometimes. --Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Saturday, 14 July 2012
Only Bullgod on that list is even worth considering in the slightest. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 06:02, 13 July 2012 (BST)
bullgod, my rambunctious neighbor, how I adore thee. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 06:52, 13 July 2012 (BST)
Harrison is a real bot, not sure how you count that. As for Leon, your reasoning is he has basically been mediocre but he's done it for a long time? This is going to be a long list with lots of unimportant players if constantly active is good enough. --Open the Box Org XIII Alts 21:07, 15 July 2012 (BST)
There was a second half to my statement having to do with pies. Sweet, delicious, post apocalyptic pies in which his finger was often in a leadership position. If that convoluted and slightly disturbing metaphor does not convince at least one person, then I retract the nomination as I am tired of defending it on my own. I am glad someone spoke up for Rev's alt though. I had some idea of some of those points but did not have the details so I figured I would leave them to the more qualified to mention. Perhaps similar will happen with Leon. --Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Wednesday, 18 July 2012
fat chance. he is a moron and probably one of the main reasons I gravitated away from the NMC. -- HEY! HANDS OFF MAH BOOBS!   bitch   COBRA!   אמת 19:13, 18 July 2012

Katthew

I nominate Katthew. Nobody can really deny how ingrained in UD that SA has been. From The Many to DARIS, UTF, New CoL, The Dead, The Malton Globetrotters and The Dead 2.0, Katthew was there. Katthew was all up in Desenz and maintaind the PK list for a long while. I beleive she even helped ressurect the board after it went down and eventually moved to Resenz. I keep expecting her to spring out of the dark shadows one day to make us all her bitch. Katthew is definitely a person of note. ~Vsig.png 03:19, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Yes. When I fall, I'll weep for happiness 18:52, 12 July 2012 (BST)
Seconded, pretty much. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 06:03, 13 July 2012 (BST)
I've read enough on this wiki to come about her name more than enough :) YES -- Johnny Twotoes 17:37, 14 July 2012 (BST)

Of all the people to represent the SA contribution I fucking agree that Katthew is the one. --Globetrotters Icon.png #99 DCC 00:12, 26 July 2012 (BST)

Duke D'oeuvre

Missed him on my last post --Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Thursday, 12 July 2012

Much as I love this man, how does he fit on this list? --DTPraise KnowledgePK 05:42, 13 July 2012 (BST)
He never left. And no.--Karekmaps 2.0?! 06:08, 13 July 2012 (BST)
I offered him here because Ross is putting together a list of persons of note. The "did he change the game" dynamic seems to be a holdover from the discussion on historical status. Duke D'oeuvre has been around, racked up a respectable kill total, been associated with most of the more notable PKer groups(including the PK and Redrum), but most importantly, his notoriety comes from his consistent personality and character design. Also, he is still active which makes it more worth while to current players to include him on a list like this. If UD is treated as an RPG rather than a strategy game, Duke D'oeuvre is one of the interesting characters who seem to be an active, notably unique, and semi-permanent feature of it's landscape. Were I a new player, I would want to know if I was standing in a room with him. If that is not the type of candidates this list is seeking to recognize, if it intends to utilize in whole or part the mired qualifications of historic status, or if it intends to focus on strategy rather than role-playing, then merely inform me now and save yourself many similarly arrived at suggestions in days to come. --Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Saturday, 14 July 2012
That's it? I somehow doubt that this measures up to Jorm, Bullgod, and Burgundy in terms of 'notable'. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 01:27, 14 July 2012 (BST) EDIT: Much less the 'Lasting Impact on the Game' that Rosslessness is looking for. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 01:34, 14 July 2012 (BST)
Does every entry need to? Also, in some ways, personalities like this are more notable in that they are still around to notice. A who's who is just another history book if all the entries correspond to people who are already dead. It certainly does not let you know who to look out for for one reason or another.--Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Saturday, 14 July 2012
Nope --WanYao 01:45, 14 July 2012 (BST)
I might be wrong, but Rev in general seems to have made a decent meta-game impact, but I'm not sure that could be tied to a single alt. Meta-celebrity, yup. But not what this list is...I think.--Open the Box Org XIII Alts 21:09, 15 July 2012 (BST)
Duke is his PKing alt. He led Red Rum with it, has led one of the most exclusive PKing groups (LCGHC) with it, I believe led the PKA with it, and has been a Philosophe Knight with it (at a leadership rank, no less), all at the same time. To say the least, most of the things he's famous for are directly tied to that alt. His other alts are admittedly well-known in their own circles (he leads a MOB strike team, led a mass combat revive with an often-quoted catchphrase at Blackmore 4(04), and gets around in BHer circles quite a bit), but this one is easily responsible for the vast majority of his notoriety since it's been the channel through which most of the big things he's done have occurred. The majority of the big PKing happenings in recent years can be tied directly to this character in one way or another. Aichon 22:00, 15 July 2012 (BST)
"The majority of the big PKing happenings in recent years can be tied directly to this character in one way or another." They can? I seem to recall him forgetting to invite Red Rum to many, and being all...well...loveably Revenant about others. By which I mean, too lazy/forgetful/inactive to show up. Duke is definitely in more groups than ought to be possible, and has more leadership positions than I knew was possible for one man to hold - including being the former Vice Mayor of Malton - but like a lot of people in recent years, he has yet to make a more permanent mark on Malton. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 04:40, 18 July 2012 (BST)
Again though, if indelibility is your sole criteria be prepared to have the list consist of bub, Someone named Holly of whom I have never heard but who holds acct #13, one of the first people to organize zombies, one of the first people to organize survivors, one of the first people to PK, the first bounty hunter, the person who figured out how to make a pinata (always wondered who this was by the way), and no one else. Unless this is the list you want, you must consider more than changing the way the game is played. You must look at notability as leaving a lasting mark on those around you. Memorability is possibly the strongest and possibly the only criteria by which to judge this. I ask myself, "which names do I associate with UD". By this criteria, all of the people I mentioned hold at least enough sway to be considered in that WanYao seems to be one of only a very few people who have not heard of them. Under those same criteria though, Amazing may not have a strong case for his admission because he cited mostly wiki events but Aichon made a decent enough case on his behalf to not reject him out of hand. I ask again, what exactly do you want this list to do? Until we come to a common consensus on this, we are doomed to the same circular masturbatory practices that have made so many so unhappy with the way historical group voting is done. "had a lasting impact on UD" was never going to cut it and this is the logical result.--Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Wednesday, 18 July 2012
Cease bringing logic into this at once! :P Aichon 07:09, 18 July 2012 (BST)
First: I'll thank you to stop trying to put words in my mouth, especially with such bizarre bullshit. Second: Common Consensus? This list is on Rosslessness' page. His rules. He says "Lasting Effect", so that's what goes on this list. I don't see the lasting effect that the Duke has had on this game yet. Give it a year of two, maybe. Personally, I think Revenant's zombie alt has had more of a lasting effect than his PKer. Reputation and metagame achievement does not 'notable' make. Swiers' work, which started all the various 'Witnesses' that are commonly used instead screenshots, makes him notable in the metagame, but not terribly important ingame. I've had enough of an effect on the PKA that I won a 'Services to the Industry' award by a landslide in the 2009 MMA's, but Ingame I'm just some no-name Scout for a PK group. This list is for people who, should you meet them ingame, have an effect on the players and environment around them because of how they've used their AP and influence.
You want a list that has a different Criteria so you can stuff more people in? Make it on your own page. It is that simple.--DTPraise KnowledgePK 15:49, 18 July 2012 (BST)
I will offer one final stab at this before bowing out of this discussion entirely, which I am sure will come as a great relief for many. DTs most recent post has shown me that this conversation is going nowhere. When someone generally renowned for his analytical, level-headed demeanor becomes defensive and uses the term "Bizarre bullshit" we are clearly losing ground. My objection was not designed to put words in anyone's mouth but to sum up what I saw to be the crux of the disagreement working itself out on this page. My objection is not centered around wanting a different set of criteria; it is centered around wanting criteria in the first place. "had a lasting impact on UD" is not a criteria: or if it is, it is woefully inadequate to base a list around. Each of us is filling in the definition with our own assumptions. For me, fame and notoriety are a big part of how one is remembered and therefore leaves a mark, for others it is the lasting strategic impact on how the game is played, still for others it is inseparable from the meta-game. After DT abandoned the "changing the game" principle in the most recent post, I am not sure what criteria he is using. My point is that it is different from mine and that used by others. By my criteria, our esteemed vice mayor is worthy of this list, by DT's he is not. Since Ross had not defined his terms, I can only assume that he is still considering criteria of his own. Accordingly, my concept of what makes one notable has no more or less claim to truth than that held by anyone else. Failure to recognize this is behind this mess: a mess that could be lessened with a useful and agreed upon rubric. True, this is Ross's page but through use of such ill-defined terms, he has merely invited the same argument to his page that existed elsewhere. I was attempting to point this out. Does he have to fix it? No, of course not. If he does not, he is doomed to this bickering. Having said that, I refer you once more to my nominations and leave this list to its fate. May it eventually sort itself out and fare well.--Albert Schwan Albert Schwan  Wednesday, 18 July 2012
Schwan's got a point. Either the criteria stays the same, in which case it's open to interpretation, or it gets narrowed down a bit. Ross can't do it all. There's certainly nothing crazy about nominating Duke. Hell, even Dave Grohl makes some sense. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 00:54, 19 July 2012 (BST)
I love it when people make specious arguments and then book it before they are called to defend their words. But the knowledge that I wont be receiving a response has never stopped me from typing before, and I shan't begin now.
First, the "Bizzare Bullshit": In response to me asking Aichon a question, you represented (and continue to represent) my arguments as "Notable = First Person to Do Something". You've tried telling me that by my standards Bub and Survivor #1 would be the only people on the list. Which is strange considering that every time I compared the Duke to anyone else, it was to Jorm, Burgundy, and Bullgod - not First in anything. Many hordes existed before Bullgod and Jorm, and many survivor groups existed before Burgundy. What makes these three people stand out is the massive impact they had and continue to have on the game. Once again, Rosslessness' "Lasting Effect". Not first guy to stick a needle into a Hostile zombie. Not Urban Dead Celebrity. Not someone who burnt himself out leading a bunch of different groups to various levels of success.
My standards require this: A Lasting Impact on the Game. I have never wavered from this argument, despite your apparent belief that I'm abandoning my arguments left and right.
To be honest, I'm fairly sure you're just getting bitter that someone disagrees with you and have decided to troll me with straw man arguments, but I'll be damned if that stops me from responding. Secondly, as to your whole "Let's change the page's thrice-stated criteria" thing. Why? Because your nominees don't actually fit the page? I said, waaaay up, under the heading PKers/Bounty Hunters that there are a tiny number of people who fit the Notable criteria simply because not many people have changed the game. I know this disqualifies a lot of people you look up to as venerable Veterans of UD, but quite honestly, it's probably for the better. They may have changed your game, maybe, but the vast majority of people either haven't heard of them or don't care about them.
Once again, I really don't think Duke D'oeuvre deserves a place on this page yet. I know he has plans to shake Malton up in the future, and maybe those will give him more than just name recognition to be remembered by. Regards, --DTPraise KnowledgePK 03:05, 19 July 2012 (BST)
It sounds like you're the one who's bitter, Tom. You don't think Duke deserves a place on this page, and someone else has the audacity to disagree with you (cogently, I might add). "The vast majority of people" who play this game haven't heard of anyone on this list, including Jorm, Burgundy, and Bullgod. It takes a special kind of person to play a text-based zombie game for 6 or 7 years. --Paddy DignamIS DEAD 17:58, 19 July 2012 (BST)
People always disagree with me, Paddy, as you well know. I love disagreements because they allow me to write walls of text. I don't know why I'd be bitter about it.
What annoys me is the blatant misrepresentation of my argument as "hurr durr Duke wasn't the first PKer therefore he can get fucked". And I agree, we are both definitely special people. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 04:22, 20 July 2012 (BST)

Flattering as watching this discussion has been, I do have to step in to correct a few misstatements and misconceptions.

1) As fas as “lasting effect” goes, well, to put it plainly, most of the lasting effect I had had has not been in plain sight — which, as anyone who claims to know me at all should know, is very much my modus operandi. This being said, I am probably in the unique position of arguing against my own inclusion on this list — which I can do very easily by simply not incriminating myself, a lesson others should have learned a long time ago.
B) The habit of others to confuse me with this “Revenant” fellow – from what I understand, some sort of priest of one of these “zombie” religions that seem so popular these last few years – has been, while utterly inexplicable to, of no small use in concealing my deeds and intents until it was too late for those concerned, and frequently even afterwards.
iii) Lastly, Doctor, “former Vice Mayor of Malton”? Former, nothing. I am the current Vice Mayor of Malton, as well as the Acting Mayor, the Head of Government, and the man who is going to bring the city burning down around your ears.

Amazing

Seriously, what the Hell? The most hated man in the history of Urban Dead has to nominate himself? Travesty! Heresy! Mustardseed! Aside from being a drama bomb of epic propotions and being a part of all the hot Caiger Mall seiges back in the day and leading THE group that kept Darvall Heights a safe zone for a wide timespan and THE group that kept over one billion survivors from starving, there's also the matter of the Sacred Ground Policy, Binoculars, Billboards, Feeding Groan, Other Things, and a UD clothing system that appeared immediately after the clothing system on Hell Rising. Also, being an integral part of early wiki history, including creating the numbered vote system (no, really) and probably a butt-load of other crap. Amazing was PKing and Griefing BEFORE it was cool. Back when you had to walk up hill in the snow just to register a the name of your enemy with a I in place of the l and smear their name throughout Malton.

As much as everyone loves to hate on Amazing, I was actually thinking of putting him forward. He was indeed the leader of a historical group, he played a role in the early sieges of Caiger Mall, and he did point out a few other in-game ideas that he had a hand in. His claim isn't entirely without merit, so it shouldn't be dismissed outright, regardless of his wiki shenanigans. Aichon 04:03, 15 July 2012 (BST)

What's his lasting ingame significance? Are those groups still around, as a powerhouse? Did he introduce a tactic which is currently a cornerstone of Survivor life? --DTPraise KnowledgePK 05:06, 15 July 2012 (BST)
I don't see these guidelines being applied to other entries. Most notably the eternally loved Ron Burgundy. You could essentially copy/paste Ron's listing and swap out the links to create the "lite" version of an Amazing blurb. Besides, the fact that there's opposition to a clearly influential character/player only amplifies their "Person of Note" status. After all, if "Amazing" weren't "of note", would anyone here have replied to the masturbatory self-nomination? :) -- ™ & © Amazing, INC. All rights reserved.

Oh, BERF. The number of my posts here have nothing to do with my original point. Let's not get all silly. To be fair, I can just answer straight-up, though. The groups I ran and/or created were still around years after I was banned here and left the game, and are both in historical status. As for tactics, I mentioned the SGP thing (I logged in recently and found the most zombies in my area waiting in a cemetery) and probably other stuff. Really I think that one's huge enough to just stop there. -- ™ & © Amazing, INC. All rights reserved. Replying constitutes acceptance of our Terms of Service. 06:43, 15 July 2012 (BST)
SGP is pretty big, as he pointed out. Otherwise, I have no intention of arguing for him. I merely wanted to push people past the "let's blow off Amazing because he's unliked" stage. Dismissing him is fine, so long as it's for valid reasons. I'm mostly staying out of all of this since I have no real interest in it and even less firsthand knowledge of the people involved (with the exception of Jorm, perhaps). Aichon 09:02, 15 July 2012 (BST)
Thanks. I don't necessarily care as much as it would seem (I came by and saw this page in recent edits and figure it'd be fun to make some noise) but it's always kind of disappointing when folks so obviously play favorites. Again, it's no big deal, so playing favorites is actually not a problem - let's just admit it happens. I would think being disliked is actually a check mark in my favor.

Cowboy Up and Swiper actually both meet that criteria of actually influencial. It's why I suggested them. DHPD's most notable event in their history aside from the Dead stuff would actually be a zerging drama, they didn't have cult of personality members of note beyond Marty or Conndraka and both have been more notable for wiki involvement and drama than anything else. Cowboy Up isn't just on here because CDF was big, he's on here because he was a 'Ron Burgandy', instantly recognizable and instantly recognized. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 17:11, 18 July 2012 (BST)

Read. Back in the day this was a common name to come across, in addition to Zod, Cowboy Up, Sonny, and Ron(and his arch-rival). There was a time when groups like the ACC actually had name recognition, though it's been a few years. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 23:11, 17 July 2012 (BST)
ACC was never on my radar. Perhaps before my time? ... But there's the rub ... I don't know everything about UD, but I've been around a while and I educated myself on the early stuff I missed out on. And if ACC didn't make an impression other than, "Oh, I heard that name", then was their influence THAT significant? Maybe. Maybe not. --WanYao 07:51, 18 July 2012 (BST)
No but the Alliance of Giddings might happen to be something you've heard of anyway. ACC is still around iirc. But definitely of note before your time. Most people on this list with the exception of Uncle Zeddie are notable from before your time as well, some are only remembered due to vocal groups(Petro), some are only remembered now due to reappearing from the mists(Jorm, Katthew). They were all still game changing people that you remembered when you saw because everyone talked about them and what they were doing. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 17:18, 18 July 2012 (BST)

Benigno

I nominate me! I organized the SSZ project in 2007 and it became one of the strongest survivor strongholds in UD history - and spanned 5 suburbs. I did a lot of work in the background but I made barricade plans for all our suburbs, got most of the groups all coordinating together...I'm not sure what else to say really. I know it was a big part of early UD history. --Benigno SSZ RCC 01:30, 8 September 2012 (BST)

I have a very different set of memories about the SSZ considering it encroached on the territory I was responsible for defending at that time. It was a lot of things but it wasn't influential, the remnants of AMS, the Santlerville survivor groups, and the two CDFs were the actual players for most of the SSZ's history and later on even smaller non-mall groups like THEM and 404 had significantly more impact than the SSZ ever did. The DHPD even had more influence and they didn't even have malls in their equivalently sized area outside of the occasional Caiger visit. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 03:46, 8 September 2012 (BST)
That is to say that definitely Rexy and Marty, and then possibly even Taurmagion(sic, AMS) were more notable players at the time. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 03:50, 8 September 2012 (BST)

I honestly was just kinda seeing what people remembered about back then. I don't really care if I get mentioned or not quite honestly as there were many more well-known people back then than me. I was always pretty quiet publicly, but behind the scenes I was giving orders to most of the individuals and groups at the time. I just didn't want the Urban Dead history books to completely omit the SSZ project out of it..--Benigno SSZ RCC 19:44, 8 September 2012 (BST)
Ah, my first group leader… good times, man, good times. I'd say you were certainly notable among Central Malton survivors at the time, but ultimately the SSZ concept didn't stand the test of time, largely due to lack of NTs. (Changing game mechanics didn't help, either.) Although speaking of which, didn't MJS come up with the idea in the first place?… wait, no, I think that was the NSZs, which pretty much were/are what we were trying to accomplish all along.
And speaking of whom how the fuck is he not on this list? I swear for like the first 6, 7 groups I joined, after a while I'd discover he was right there with me! Grr! Argh! *shaking fist*

I'd give a vote for MJS. Foobarosa came up with the idea of the SSZ and I made it happen. We already had small defense networks for all of our NTs, but we took the ideas of the NSZs that MJS described and further incorporated them into our defense strategy.
