WelcomeEdit

Hi, welcome to QuakeWiki! Thanks for your edit to the User talk:Shaleblade page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Sarah Manley@fandom (Talk) 13:39, March 1, 2010


RE: Hey man Edit

I would more than love to have your help around this wiki. I myself adopted it with little knowledge of a wiki's inner workings, so any and all help is more than appreciated. Your admin status should be coming into effect. --Shaleblade 01:23, March 22, 2010 (UTC)



HeyEdit

I've been playing Quake II and Quake for years and know my stuff when it comes to these 2 fine games and their expansion packs. It'd be a pleasure to put my knowellege of Quake down into this Wiki for others to see. Check out the Dragon (Boss) page to see my efforts. I need a few pages created but I'm not permitted yet to create pages. If you're looking for more Admins I'll be more than willing to go for it and prove my self.

Quake is a fine game and I want to help make this a fine Wiki.


Raadec,


RE: Admin Request Edit

Judging by the quality of Raadec's edits, I would say Raadec is more than capable of holding an administrative position. Also, if it is possible to edit user group permissions, please let me know; I would like to allow Admins/Members/Etc etc etc to create new pages, rather than just helpers. --Shaleblade 13:22, March 24, 2010 (UTC)


Edit

If we're going to be using a skin like this, maybe we could use [this] icon? I believe it may fit better. I really like the way this redesign is going.

Do note that when I adopted this wiki, it was with the previous logo/skin. Not my choice. --Shaleblade 21:44, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

EDIT: It looks better on a dark background, it works with transparencies.


New BackgroundEdit

Whilst its a nice change, I thought I'd just let you know (in case you didn't already know) that some pages (particuly the templates) have white back ground with whitish grey text. I realise this is work in progress, so as I continue my work on this Wiki, I'll look out for any problem/ideas that may help.

Raadec 07:56, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

EDIT: Thank you :)


ImagesEdit

Sorry, but I've noticed you've uploaded a few images lately, but when I try, it gives me that permission page that says I don't have permission. Any ideas?

Raadec 20:39, March 31, 2010 (UTC)raadec


RE:RE:ImagesEdit

Sorry, but I ask because I've done quite a few pages over the past week, but hardly any of them have pictures. Since I have every Quake game under the sun, I plan on taking my own pictures. Overwriting current images won't last very long in terms of practicality ;)

Raadec 09:18, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

p.s

I've noticed you have your own Wiki, Dark Crusade. So you must know a thing or two about a decent wiki page. Any feed back you can give me on my pages will be helpful. I might be an expert on Quake, but this is my first administrator position on a Wiki and my first time editing Wiki pages on mass.


RE:RE:RE:RE:ImagesEdit

That is stupid, oh well, for now I'll concentrate on updating the current pages and probably going over the ones I've already updated. Shaleblade will learn his way round in time and then I'll be able to do a lot more for this wiki.

And yes, I do have more edits :) but as the old outdated saying goes, quality is more important than quantity. I'm working on a template for the pages to make them neat and professional looking whilst getting down as much information as possible.

Raadec 18:43, April 1, 2010 (UTC)


Wake Up Call Edit

Hey

Just wandering where you been :) Not that theres any imediate need for your return. The Wiki is running nicely, apart from the lack of ability to create new pages. I've been made Burecrate but I still have no idea what exactly I can do with this new title, apart from help the fellow community, which is good. There's no problems but I'm sure I, as the only regular admin at the moment, will be able to sort any that do arise.

Raadec 13:51, April 20, 2010 (UTC)


Lifting the Ban Edit

I've actully already contacted Wikia Help about it and they came back asking some questions. I'm waiting for a second reply but it wouldn't hurt if we both tried.


Raadec 09:12, April 21, 2010 (UTC)


Update: QuakeWikiEdit

Your right, as we three are the only regular admins at this time, i've made you a bureaucrat, I doubt Shaleblade'll have any problems with that :). But I do think it should stick with just us 3 for the time being until. Unless ofcourse you know somebody from your other Wikia you think would be able to contribute beyond what you, I or Shaleblade could do. QuakeWiki is going through a rebirth and all help is welcome.

I've taken a break from my postings which I'll continue in good time, hopefully once this ban is taken care of. Like me, users such as Dorat are keen to start making new pages. I've got some plans for this wikia, namely deleting useless pages and replacing them with much needed pages.

For example, this page which lists all the guards can be replaced by a disambiguation theres no need for that page to have information and then have the same information of the seperate pages. Basically I'm going to go through every page and clean up the entire Wikia. It's not bad at the moment, but god is in the detail.

renaming Edit

can we re-name pages? if so do you know how?

Raadec 17:44, April 22, 2010 (UTC)


re:re:renamingEdit

i found out how to rename pages, theres a tab at the top of the pages to move a page, thus in a way, creating a new page. I've just done it with the Makron, and now all i must do is delete the original Makron page because there is now a Makron (Q2) and Makron (Q4)

p.s. how've you been finding out how to disable the ban on new pages?

Raadec 12:00, April 23, 2010 (UTC)


Creating new pages Edit

The problem with creating pages has finally been sorted out thanks to me. I have put a message on the main page to make sure everyone knows. I will take it down after a few days. Edit it if you want but its easier than telling everyone one at a time.


Raadec 18:23, April 23, 2010 (UTC)


General Inquiry Edit

A number of questions, if I may:


Currently, character pages are named by abbreviated rank and name. While this in-and-of itself is not an issue, is it possible to follow the conventions of naming characters simply by their full name, without their rank? Has this been tried previously?:: Are there any umbrella projects ongoing that I should know of prior to modifying certain pages? Similarly, are there any articles, or collections of articles, that have a higher priority for improvement than other articles?
In regard to article standards, is there a project or endeavor in swing to improve or expand its specifics?
Projects and General Improvements

Similarly, are there any articles, or collections of articles, that have a higher priority for improvement than other articles?

My apologies if this inquiry is either poorly-timed or bothersome (or, worse, both), but I wanted to get a general sense before making any changes, insignificant or drastic as they may be. Thank you for you time. Auguststorm1945 19:07, April 27, 2010 (UTC)


New User Edit

A new user has had a play around with the main page as he requested to have a chance. I like it, it needs a bit of cleaning up which I'll probably sort out tonight. I just want to know what your thoughts are on it since your the one who has done this sort of thing in the past.


Raadec 23:32, April 27, 2010 (UTC)


RE:Main Page Edit

First, the Weapons tab is good, I like it. Maybe its getting too crowded now. The navbar should be a quick link for users and the tabs "Recent Blog Posts" and "Quake 4 Pictures" are just adding to the clutter and I dont see any need for them. If you agree, would you mind getting rid of those two, but the others I think are good.

Secondly, what happened to the other Logo? It was much better than this new one don't you think? Is there a reason you changed it?

and Fianlly, on the mainpage there is now a recent activity, but we also have a recent activity under the navbar so would you be able to get rid of the recent activity that is on the actual main page. The one under the navbar is better placed. I did try my self last night, but I made a huge mess of it and had to undo it.

Raadec 17:44, April 28, 2010 (UTC)


It's quite simple really; I'll go ahead and remove it for now. Sorry to intrude, but faster this way. Auguststorm1945 17:48, April 28, 2010 (UTC)


Quake 3 Bots Edit

Thank you for sorting that out.

I have visited the new Quake 3 Bots page and there is a minor problem with the Navbar and Logo. Could you have a look? I have stated a new layout for that page but its not going well. I am also thinking about renaming that page Eternal Arena and using it as a link page to bots and maps.

Also I have been thinking about the main page and I think it is a bit cluttered. The old style was more spaced out. if you get what I mean. I am going to draw up an idea that will hopefully combine the good points of both versions. Look here on my user page to see what I am talking about and see if you agree.

Raadec 11:10, April 29, 2010 (UTC)

EDIT: Auguststorm1945 has requested for an administrator position. I have also forwarded this to Shaleblade to decide as a group whether to accept it or not.


Clarifications Edit

As you have voiced a concern regarding my revisions, I would simply ask that you clarify it: what specific actions or directions might I take that would result in the ruination of Quake Wiki? I am both curious and wish to avoid such conflicts. Auguststorm1945 08:34, April 30, 2010 (UTC)


I certainly understand your caution, given that particular experience. How exactly did this particular user ruin the wiki? Auguststorm1945 08:47, April 30, 2010 (UTC)


Ah, I see. By the way is this the wiki you are referring to? And the closest I've ever come to that level of catastrophe was forgetting the <noinclude></noinclude> when categorizing a template, a mistake which was quickly remedied. Auguststorm1945 08:56, April 30, 2010 (UTC)


Alright; is there anything you want me to specifically avoid revising? Auguststorm1945 09:15, April 30, 2010 (UTC)


Auguststorm1945 Edit

From what you said, I have told him that he will be made a Sysop. All I need from you is a final definite answer.

Of course he’ll only be made a sysop, not a bureaucrat so just incase he does screw us over, we can strip him of his rank and ban him, not that I think he will =D

But I understand where you’re coming from.


THE MAINPAGE



You’ve stated you’ve sorted out a template for the new mainpage, but it looks the same. I am by no means rushing you, you can do it when ever, but I’m just making sure you don't think it's finished.

Raadec 21:33, April 30, 2010 (UTC)


MediaWiki:Monaco-sidebar Edit

I made some modifications to the weapons section (took a few edits to get it right, admittedly); it's a bit easier to deal with, I think. The subsections of Weapons of Quake (Quake 1, Quake 2, etc.) now link straight to their respective category of weapons (Category:Quake 1 Weapons|Quake 1, (Category:Quake 2 Weapons|Quake 2)). I also made a redirect from Weapons of Quake to take users straight to Weapons. Auguststorm1945 19:56, May 1, 2010 (UTC)


Main Page Edit

You remember how the main page was before Auguststorm changed it? Would you be able to return it to that template with the two boxes either side of each other. I will sort out the details within the boxes. Thank you.

Raadec 11:58, May 4, 2010 (UTC)


Pretty simple, good sir;
{{box1 start}}
{{box2 start}}
{{boxes end}}
Anyway, I changed I returned above box set to the main page, removed an a header section with redundant content, moved games into one of the boxes (rather than leave it with redundant information), and removed the odd link at the bottom. Auguststorm1945 18:35, May 4, 2010 (UTC)


RE:Quake 2 Video Edit

What you've done is great. I should have finished it since I started it but I've not had much time to do any large amount of editing lately. So thank you for taking care of that.

Main Page

I have a couple of points to make on the development of the main page.

1) The Poll. Don't get me wrong, I like it but it just isn't suited for the main page. Would you agree that we should make a Poll Page that can be linked from the Main Page if you want to keep it going? Maybe have a new Poll every week/month.

2) The Game Link Logos. Well done on the new designs, really goes well with the obsession theme (or what ever its called). But the Quake II logo is about out, I know this was due to some render error as I was on QuakeWiki when you were in the middle of putting the new images on. I am going to further improve the mainpage today and replace those images, but if you have any objections, i'll glady put yours back on.

Raadec 09:13, May 6, 2010 (UTC)


Game Logos Edit

All I'll be doing is making them a bit bigger and fixing the Quake II icon. But I'll be keeping to your design as close as possible. But you are more than welcome to check them out your self and decide if you like them. Expect them to be in the images sometime today.


Raadec 09:29, May 6, 2010 (UTC)


Link Logos Edit

I have uploaded the link logos for Quake 1 and 3... number 2 and 4 are on the way. Take a look and tell me what you think. I didn't spend alot of time making them so please tell me what you think, be it good or bad.

Raadec 10:52, May 6, 2010 (UTC)


Thanks Edit

I had to go do something else before I could do Q4 Link, so thank you for doing it.


Raadec 13:47, May 6, 2010 (UTC)


re: Edit

Thanks, I'm just sorting out a few pictures and updating pages at the moment.

Regarding Team Arena, I'll have a look some time. Team Arena is the one Quake game I have not played :)

Regarding QuakeLive, I've tried it once before and couldnt get it working. I might try again in the near future.

Raadec 15:00, May 7, 2010 (UTC)


idea Edit

in the navbar where it says Quake quad...

can you put an extra list after the first list of games for the expansion packs. So Quake Quad would lead to Quake would lead to Scourge of Armagon, for example.

Thanks.

Raadec 16:00, May 7, 2010 (UTC)


Idea #2 Edit

I've had anouther idea, and if you don't want to I completely understand or if it doesnt even mean anything thing to you, then that's fine too.

I'm just wondering if you have MSN. Because if we added each other, we could more easily discuss the Wikia, and it would be just that, discussing the Wikia. Like I said, if you dont want to or you dont have MSN, i understand and we can forget about it.

Raadec 19:38, May 7, 2010 (UTC)


Quake 3 Bots Edit

Yo,

Is there a plan to make pages for every Quake 3 Bot? Because if there is, do you think there's any need? The information for each bot will fit on Quake 3 Bots so there is no need for each bot to have their own page.

This a housekeeping idea more than anything. If you agree, then I'll make it a paramount rule.

I'm also going to sort out that page (tidy it up) today.

Raadec 15:11, May 11, 2010 (UTC)


Game portals Edit

Hey there...

I've already proposed this idea to Raadec with a plea for help, but he hasn't responded yet so I'm asking you now:

As of now, the four links on the main page only lead to the four games. I think it would be better to create Portals that give an overview over each game's levels, enemie, weapons, items, expansions etc.. This would allow for easier access to many articles. As I cannot even build a simple template on my own, I would like to ask you whether you could do this.

Dorat 16:40, May 12, 2010 (UTC)

I did respond but I never heard anything back from him.

Raadec 17:06, May 12, 2010 (UTC)

User:TeriffiedToxic{ background-color: #ff7700; color: #ffffff; } 08:52, May 13, 2010 (UTC)


Mods and Hacks Edit

Sgt.Veteren (with his latest contributions) has made me think we need to decide whether will will cover mods and hacks on QuakeWiki or just stick to official material. Veteren has created pages relating to some The Simpons mod for Quake 3. At the moment these pages are poor but for the time being, that is besides the point.


We will follow the good faith rule and give Veteren a chance to continue his work on these pages. But in the meantime, we need to decide if we will continue to cover similar material. Personally I would vote against such articles and would very much like to delete Veteren's new pages.

What are your views?


Raadec 09:28, May 13, 2010 (UTC)


RE: Mods and hacks Edit

Well I agree with you point and deleting them would be the best idea. I just was wondering about make a page for Open arena. It's a mod that is basicly quake arena just with different Bots and maps. But I guess thats a mod so you go ahead and delete them pages and make sure to tell stg dude why you did it.



Thanks

User:TeriffiedToxic Q3A is great 16:36, May 13, 2010 (UTC)


RE:mods Edit

Ok then, then it's a rule then? Only official material to be coverd on QuakeWiki? Maybe we should make a page listing the games that pages can be made based on.

I'm going to sort Veteren out tomorrow. The Simpsons just dont belong on this site. I'm going to leave it up to you to decide whethere that thing you spoke of should be covered since I dont know anything about it.

Raadec 17:34, May 13, 2010 (UTC)


Re: Portals Edit

Well, I've been looking around in some wikis and found the technology portal on Memory Alpha (see here). I think except for the "featured article"-part, that this is a structure we could use.

If it's ok with them, I guess we could simply copy it from there, if not, one would have to re-create it for this wiki...

Dorat 15:49, May 14, 2010 (UTC)


Mod Pages cont'd update Edit

Like I said last time, I'm going to leave the mod pages, we just need to make sure the peeps who create them make it a proper article and not some one sentance pathetic effort.

Except for the Simpsons pages. They WILL be taken down this week. I will see to it.

Raadec 23:10, May 16, 2010 (UTC)


re: Edit

its good, well done. keep up the good work. i made an edit on Tier 0 just changing the layout, hope you like it but any further improvements are always welcome.

i am playing Dissolution of Eternity so you might have noticed my new pages relating to the enemies in that game. check out Mummy, Overlord and Quake's Guardian. more to come over time.

Raadec 13:28, May 30, 2010 (UTC)


Quake 4 Video Edit

Hey,

I have asked 3819x22 (youtube user) about allowing us to use his Quake 4 videos on QuakeWiki. I'll await his reply and keep you updated on the matter.

Raadec 21:10, June 2, 2010 (UTC)


RE:Q4vid Edit

He has "granted permission" so I will start putting them on today.

Raadec 08:24, June 3, 2010 (UTC)


Cheats Edit

Good question you've raised, do we need cheat pages.

This is how I see it, QuakeWiki is about all things Quake and people will come here to look up information and facts about Quake. So we should put up all things Quake and cheats are part of the game. So I think we should do it, despite not really wanting to.

This leads onto the next thing. I don't think we want 5 seperate pages for cheats with 1 for Macintosh, 1 for PC, 1 for PSX. I'm sure you'll agree but this is what that unregistered contributer has started. So, if you agree with putting a cheat page on it, then I'll rename Quake 4 Console Cheats (Mac) to Quake Cheats and then it will be a single page for every cheat on every game on every system.

Raadec 09:44, June 10, 2010 (UTC)


re: Edit

I know what your feeling, I am too. But it has to be done. Atleast my way all the cheats will be put together in a 'single' page.


Raadec 08:02, June 11, 2010 (UTC)


Front page Polls Edit

To get a quick reaction, I do think front page polls are a good idea. But can you make a sepereate box maybe under or above the current two to tidy it up a bit?

Also, what's with the logo change poll? I kinda like our current logo.

Raadec 09:47, June 11, 2010 (UTC)


Re: Front page Edit

Well I've tried and tried again and I can't get the poll in a single box it always joins with Box 2. And with the Logo it's good but the Red quake logo it is Regeneration so I think it needs changing to something more Quakey


Logo & Background Edit

First off, the logo looks nothing like the Regeneration symbol. I do think the logo is fine, BUT I am open to ideas for a better one. We could get the others to design their own logo and we'll see if they come up with something better.

As for background image, I do have some ideas but I haven't the first clue on how to put them there. If I draw a concept image of our front page with my idea, would you be able to do it?

Raadec 11:52, June 14, 2010 (UTC)


RE Edit

ok Sclera1 09:01, June 16, 2010 (UTC)


Quake 3 Bots Edit

Hey, you beat me to the punch. I have just deleted Doom (Q3) and Klesk and was about to explain to him why I did it but you'd already done it. Anyways keep an eye on him, and be on the look out for more Quake 3 Bots that arn't Bitterman or Ranger.

Raadec 09:02, June 16, 2010 (UTC)


Skin Edit

It's all HTML, unless am looking at it wrong. I trust that it will be worth a try. It will be work in progress until we can get it perfect.

Raadec 12:35, June 16, 2010 (UTC)


Spring Cleaning Edit

Hey, I am going to start a spring cleaning, in that we delete every useless page. If you could help by giving me a list of pages you find that you think should be deleted (their content moved to anouther page). I will look out for possible deletions. I have no idea how many we will find if any, but its worth the effort to clean up QuakeWiki.

Also, when are you going to implement the new custom theme?

Raadec 22:15, June 18, 2010 (UTC)


Edit

Sorry i have been away and thus have not been on for sometime. I can't log in from where I am but I do like the logo and would be glad to have it put on asap.

As for the skin, there still needs to be white text replacing the darker text which is hard to see on dark backgrounds, but this is an on going thing and you can do it in your own time.

I'll confirm this as me when I am back at home but thought to hault your waiting for the time being.

Raadec


Skin Edit

First off, that is me in the previouse message.. i've been in London this week.

Anyways, regarding the skin and the poll on the front page... it's not gained high reactions and to me, it has become a softer version of obsession. Don't get me wrong, i am even thinking its bad thing, this will take sometime to get the right skin. But at the moment it is the not the right one.

Like i've said, that logo is good so put that up when you're ready. We'll discuss skin ideas next time we're on msn



Raadec 20:27, June 25, 2010 (UTC)


'yello Edit

Hey. This seems like a cool wiki, I think I could help you if you like. My knowledge specialises in Quake Live and Quake 1 (flash import... kekeke), so I could help a lot with those. Thanks for any responses.

Kid2255 Talk 22:40, June 27, 2010 (UTC)


Logo and Skin Edit

Now that your back, read my last two posts and decide wether we want to keep this skin for now or revet back to Obsession. Don't take this wrong way, I do like your efforts but it does need improving as I'm sure you'll agree.

My idea is to base the color scheme on the new logo (Brownish Yellow Orange). It pays homage to the original Quake logo and would be a good idea for QuakeWiki. See what you can do. Looking forward to it.

Raadec 10:07, June 28, 2010 (UTC)


Merge with QuakeLiveWiki Edit

Hi, I have asked that owner of QuakeLiveWiki to merge with us again. I would prefer it if we did because that would mean everything QuakeLive we could put on his Wiki and leave this one just Quake 1-4. All that we would do is make it clear that peeps go to his Wiki for QuakeLive and he makes it clear peeps come to us for Quake.


Raadec 09:59, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

QuakeLiveWiki guy said he would be glad to form a friendship between are Wikis. We can still have information about QuakeLive but can't hurt to form this friendship.. I do agree with you that we should also have all the information on QuakeLive too. To be honest, after thinking about, I can't see the point of QuakeLiveWiki that we can't do more than him on this Wiki. What do you think.


Raadec 11:08, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

I've seen you've been doing some work on QuakeLiveWiki. I think we should list all the maps here. Maybe make a page with a picture of each map and it's items. Or if you think it would be better, make a page for each map.


Raadec 11:23, June 30, 2010 (UTC)


My New Wiki Edit

I am having a go at my own Wiki for The Office UK. Even if you don't know anything about it, it would be good if you could join it and help with some of the formatting (if only for a short time as I get started off).

See below for the link.

The Office UK

For starters, it didn't save the logo I put up. I'll upload the logo for you to put on.

Thanks.

Raadec 08:30, July 1, 2010 (UTC)


QuakeLiveWiki Edit

Can you fix my message about QuakeLive on our main page, put the link in and all.. thanks. I'm useless at HTML, not used it properly for years.


Raadec 17:13, July 1, 2010 (UTC)


BackgroundEdit

I agree, I guess it's always a good idea to go back to the routes of a series (using the color scheme of the original logo).

But there are still a few tweaks that need to be done, namely the links (which are dark blue and hard to see) need to contrast the brown background (on mainpage, maybe white would be a good idea). And the templates need better text color. But apart from that, I am happy with it :)

Raadec 09:49, July 2, 2010 (UTC)


BackgroundEdit

I do like having a picture in the background, but personally I do not think we should use a Quake Wars one. I am half and half really, so we will keep it for now. Also the text on the brown background should be white because the dark blue of the "clicked on" links is difficult to see.

Overall, it's good what you've done.

Raadec 22:55, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

p.s.

I am playing Quake II again now so I will be doing quite a bit of editing of Quake II related pages over the next couple of weeks.

Raadec 22:55, July 8, 2010 (UTC)


Background Edit

I see you changed the skin, what are your future plans for it?


Raadec 18:36, July 16, 2010 (UTC)


Quake 4 Squads Edit

Someone has made a page for each squad. I would prefer there was one page for all the squads. If you can sort this out, that;d be good. But if you havent got time, then I will sort it out. It would give me something productive to do for the first time in ages.


Raadec 17:44, July 17, 2010 (UTC)


unregistered users Edit

i see your point but the problem is, now we have loads of pages with 1 sentance and many of these are secoundary characters and thus 1 sentance is what you'll get from it. Kinda lame.

Also can we do something to get peeps to make accounts, it is a lot more difficult to help/control people when they don't use an account. Maybe a note on the main page.

Raadec 17:22, July 21, 2010 (UTC)


Template text Edit

Hi, i just awnted to say that in some of the templates like the Quake 1 enemies etc, you couldn't really see the enemy names when they are blue in a dark brown background. How about putting the text in a red color instead? =) Sclera1 07:08, July 31, 2010 (UTC)


Help with Q3 Pages Edit

Would you like some help getting the Q3 and Q3TA pages together?

Q3 Bot Pages Edit

Sorry about that, I'll reedit and delete.

Bit of Help Edit

Could you tell me how to delete my page? I don't see how to do it.

Hi Edit

Hey, how are things going here? Sorry I've not been here lately, am sure you can cope by your self. I will be around for a few days.

Kamikaze Page Edit

Would you like me to create the Kamikaze powerup page for you? DoomerX 23:58, August 19, 2010 (UTC)DoomerX


Ranger and/or Wrack Edit

I'm not so sure that Ranger is the only hero from Quake 1. While using the /bot_testichat 1 command, most of Wrack's chat lines referred to Q1 weapons, items or in the case of the kamikaze, to Shub. When I tested Ranger's lines, were the axe in the kill_gauntlet section and the game_enter chat lines, which mentioned Quake's minions and portals. Wrack had mentioned slipgates in his game_enter as well.. So could it be possible that Wrack and Ranger are two personalities of the same character?



Unneccesary?Edit

Thanks for the welcoming :) but was my improvement on medkit unneccesary? Darkrille132 19:31, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Dear TerrifedToxic,

How can I find out the monster's health, their attack damage, weapons' damage?

Best wishes

PS: Why can't I edit Zombie (Q1) page?!


New Admin Edit

Hey,

Saw your poll about a new admin and I really don't think we need to at this time. We have 4 active admins, 2 of which arn't really active and the wiki is running smoothly. Unless you can think of a real good reason, then I can't see us taking someone else on.

All the best,

Raadec 20:54, September 23, 2010 (UTC)


ReRe Poll Edit

I see what you mean. I do admit I have not had chance to do much work on the wiki in the past few months. I do look out for bad posts (which I have sorted out a few lately) but you're right.

Keep an eye out for anyone you think might work. Just put it by through me so we both can monitor someones work and choose.

I will still be here helping :)

All the best.

Mainpage Font Edit

Hey there,

When you have sometime, can you experiment with the mainpage font? I am thinking we could try Black (including links) but if that does not look good, can you make it all white (as it is now) but make the links white too?

Thanks

Raadec 21:28, September 28, 2010 (UTC)


New Skin Edit

Hey, I like the new skin. Since the recent activity sidebar is no longer present, do you think you could put it somewhere on the mainpage? The bottom right hand box (where you currently talk about poll results) might be a good idea.

This will help me with upkeeping the Wiki's quality.

Raadec 18:28, November 6, 2010 (UTC)


History Edit

Either I am blind or this new wikia layout is even more retarded than I first thought. Where is the History button so that you can see a list of edits and users who posted?

Raadec 12:16, November 19, 2010 (UTC)


Pardon the interruption, but I believe it is available in the "My tools" tab at the bottom of the page. If it is not, you should be able to add it to your tools. Additionally, there is usually a small tab immediately underneath the article title; hover your pointer over it - a "View Full History" option should become visible.

Update November Edit

A couple of things.


Edit

Don't take it the wrong way, but I think the Logo can do with some work. It's one of those things that will take a few attempts to get right. Thanks to Wikia we are back at square one. I have created a very simple Logo (see below) and can you tell me what you think. If you don't like it, feel free say.

Logo4

New Logo







Or. Maybe we could hold some sort of contest where we get people to design a logo and then us two decide which one to choose. The winner can get a banner on his/her user page or something. Tell me what you think of that too.


2) Quake WarsEdit

I am one of the people who voted No for a Quake Wars page. Mainly because Quake Wars is an ET game, not Quake. But it seems the majority want a page for it. What are your views on this?

Raadec 12:17, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

Quake 3 Bots Edit

I now think the pages are a good idea, but only if we can find the data for each bot to put on the wikia. I heard, although never found, that the data is on the Q3A disc. I will try to find this with the help of our editors.

Raadec 12:15, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

Response Edit

Alright - the main page was changed, undone, redone, and so on. I started utilizing the Forums, as has Raadec, in an effort to include and encourage the community. I recently created an article for Quake Wars, and a template for it as well. Similarly, I have added templates as appropriate to various articles. I also clarified a number of points with Raadec regarding administration, ownership, forums, and help pages.

You weren't "notified" because you weren't active. Come to think of it, when I was absent for a time, neither yourself nor Raadec asked my opinion on things, which was fine. I also would appreciate it if you would refrain from swearing at myself, or any user really.

If there is something you would like further explained, just ask. Auguststorm1945 20:04, December 4, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Edit

Well the mainpage is in need of work and this is the "going forwards" progress bit. Don't think it's anywhere near finished in it's current state. I have a few points I don't like about it but me and Auguststorm are working towards making it better.

And no need to get "angry". I didn't see any need to contact you about it since i'm still awaiting a reply about the Logo.

It's pretty much what AStorm said, we're working at the Mainpage. It's an ongoing progress and please feel free to tell us what you think. With all 3 of us working on it, we'll quickly get something good.

--Raadec 21:46, December 4, 2010 (UTC)

Background Edit

I agree, as I stated, I'm not all happy about the new layout, but me and Auguststorm are working at improving it. We are all putting ideas into it and helping one anouther to get something good out of it.

And don't worry about it, I my self just sit back and monitor the Wiki without actully making edits sometimes. And ofcourse, any real life problems out weigh the Wiki.

At the moment, I am looking over other pro-Wikis such as GTAWiki, Wookiepedia, Lostpedia, KillzoneWiki to see what we can borrow for the mainpage layout. Ofcourse we should not copy it as we need to come up with our very own which will suit the Wiki, both its is level of input and community as well the topic in hand, Quake.

--Raadec 15:38, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

Quake Live Wiki Edit

It would be extremely difficult for me to copy Quake Live Wiki, considering I have never visited that site. If you are referring to the user of headers, however, you should know that they are very common and are in use on many wikis.

And the game's title is Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. I checked. Several times.

As for "not answering your calls" - which calls? If you're referring to the main page, anything I do there is undone rather quickly, or was until recently. Aside from that, I can't find any message you sent me. Auguststorm1945 17:34, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

Edit

I agree, my idea was just an idea. Have anouther go but I just came up with an idea. I think we should have picture, such as Quake logo (as it is on mine) but maybe then have it say QuakeWiki but in the same font as your 500 edits banner that you made. That was cool.

--Raadec 11:06, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Logo Edit

The new logo is up. I really like it. That IS our new logo, thanks mate. The color and font is perfect.
