Theres your 3K! Yeah I know of the edit counting glitch. My counter says I have 8.3K edits yet the special edit counter page says I have 9K edits. I just go by whats next to my avatar as its easier. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 02:10, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
Hey Arrow can you update the Features of BF3 and Features of BF4 templates with Battlelog? I would like you to put it like this in the multiplayer section of both templates: Battlelog(Platoons Emblems Missions) . -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 03:07, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
I can't view it at the moment since work computers block gaming-related anything. I'll check it out later.18:38, February 28, 2014 (UTC)
Arrow, read Platoons. You can only create a platoon if you are Premium or at least level 10. Also i promoted you and PLR to Founders so you can edit and do the same things i can with the platoon. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 22:01, February 28, 2014 (UTC)
That drivable SUV in the link you posted in the trivia was awesome to watch! I love the hidden things in BF3, like the pilotable Little Bird in Op. Swordbreaker, PLR technical in Night Shift, and now, this. :D22:27, March 1, 2014 (UTC)

Arrow, I think its about time we overhaul all weapon, gadgets, and vehicle (W/G/V) pages. What do you say?
Basically we would:
- Remove all instances of "In Battlefield ***, the *** is a ***" Instead it should read, "The *** is a *** featured in Battlefield ***, "
- Removing gallery coding in source - Unless its a complex gallery the coding should just read <"gallery">
- Combining galleries - If a gallery has one picture in it and it is directly followed by another gallery with numerous images, combine them
- Remove excessive images - if you think a gallery has too many, remove the ones with the least importance
- Remove all subjective content
- Fix spacing
- Anymore ideas, go for them
- Fix game headings - All expansion exclusive weapons/vehicles should still be listed under the base game or if a weapon/gadget is fundamentally different in a expansion then the base game, it should be under the "Heading 3". For example, Many pages have BC2V items in heading 2 instead of 3
That Match in Rogue Transmission
You bastard! I bailed out of the passenger seat of the Kasatka into the field, spotting a group of enemies, along with you! Excitedly, I flank around and sprint right at you from behind. My knife was literally centimeters away from your throat, animation triggered, heart pounding, and your buddy shoots me dead. Oh, how I yearn for your dog tags. They will be mine! :P20:46, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
- I had a gut feeling you were one of those three red dots in the field when I bailed out of the helicopter. :P Maybe next time, indeed. >:)

Can you update the BF4 gadget template with all knives in the game? Also, if you want to make an attachment template and take the time to go through each and every attachment page and put it on them, go for it. The same goes for Launchers, Explosives, etc. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 22:19, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
Just saw your message, that sounds like a good idea. Though I think we should keep launchers on the weapons page, like in Weapons/BF3, though that's up to you guys, just my thoughts on it.
So, just to compose a list:
^Move to the Gadgets/BF4 template.
^Move to the new Attachments/BF4 template.
08:15, March 5, 2014 (UTC)
I see your point now (regarding lauunchers). Go for it.18:02, March 5, 2014 (UTC)
You guys think you can boss around when you have been here for a while I thought this is a free Wiki that anyone can edit. - EpicWaffleFTW March 6, 2014
Arrow the knife list is getting too long and will only get longer. Can you turn the list into a table like the assignment pages? You know have it "Image/Knife Name/Unlocked/Other Info" - -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 21:51, March 6, 2014 (UTC)
... on the gadgets and attachments templates!19:00, March 7, 2014 (UTC)
- Great! You mustve liked creeping on my PSN trophies for BF4 to get those pics :P. Pertaining to your background, I would speak with Yuri as he created the last few as well as the Wiki's logi. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 17:02, March 11, 2014 (UTC)
It is quite the hassle. Yuri put in a lot of effort in changing it from BF3 to BF4. I think it is best if we leave it as is.05:46, March 12, 2014 (UTC)
Its about time we merge all those horrible customization stubs on the Wiki. Think your up to it? Maybe we could set it up like the Appearance page. That also brings me to possible merging of Training Option pages with Specialization pages. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 02:36, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
- Per Yuri, if you happen to come across any trivia tabbers, replace them with heading 3 sections in the trivia. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 22:16, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
- What should we do with the remaining P4F customization pages? -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 17:34, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
Your the master at user pages...
So how do I get rid of the grenade category on my page which I accidently added? (Yes I'm back. See my blog for an explanation)
That would work. If I still had access to visual editing. Right now I can only edit in source mode (for what ever peculiar reason). Any ideas?-- 14:10, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I can now add categories. However, I still have no access to visual editor. It's no biggy, I kinda like source mode...-- 15:03, March 15, 2014 (UTC)

I promise I'll stop tomorrow. Just for today, I'm going to have that edit summary. Besides, it's not every edit, just most.--15:22, March 15, 2014 (UTC)

Friends on BL
Hey man, if it turns out some of my friends are interested in joining our platoon, can you put a message on the public wall of our platoon telling them to ask Awy (still need to talk to him about that) and me about times to join in for a game on PS3? I would do it myself only my lack of standing/respect makes it a bit awkward to be posting directory messages. Unless you want me two? p.s. I have not check my inbox yet so maybe none of them give a ****.--08:45, March 16, 2014 (UTC)
I started on the Battlefield Play4Free Customization. Think you can help? The link to the page with all items is at the very bottom in external links. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 22:11, March 16, 2014 (UTC)
Upgrade Path Merge
Can you help me combine the Upgrade path pages? They'll just remain stubs anyway. By combine i mean we would put them in tables like other pages. Have it set up as
I would like to use the images from Battlelog. You cannot directly save them, you need to go into the files to get them. Kook or Apprentice know how to do this. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 18:23, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
Re: This page
I was doing it similar to Awy's style. however, I might change the colour scheme. I'm a bit iffy though because I would probably use teal in it and we all know what teal refers to.--16:48, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
--18:07, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
There are no DMRs in either BC2 or BF3. I don't have BF4, but they're probably considered sniper rifles there as well. So there's no reason for that page to exist. Юра 18:20, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
- Then don't include what we've already discerned to be unrelated. Юра 18:24, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
Christ. No. That isn't what I meant. Юра 19:15, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

Sig and block
I already talked to wiki staff about my sig. It stays as it is. Now block me for the next 5 hours please so I'm not tempted to edit here. I need to revise. Thank you.
Don't question my mind. If you're my friend you will block me for 5 hours so I can do this.-- 19:25, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
Surely I'm allowed to request being blocked?-- 20:03, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
part of me just nieh, nieh, nieh! but the mature part says you're right. I still would appreciate the use of force. p.s. you're aware your sig is back to it's normal self right? 17:38, March 18, 2014 (UTC)
1 - BC2 would only apply to small arms, except shotguns.
2 - and I'm the one who got all of the information on Refractor era games. I don't have them on-hand but yes, all refractor-era games use projectiles. Юра 21:23, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
- Yes, I'm sure. They're hitscan-like because they aren't all subject to bullet drop, but some of them are (namely, handguns, but handguns are weird because they're also the only ones with damage dropoff.) Юра 21:33, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
You can change the name of attachment for what you need, but keep _fancy.png For exact names, go to loadout menu, open some weapon loadout and press F12 (firefox), then choose item, you want to.

Please let me know why the video was removed from Battlefield 4: Naval Strike. If it's something that's against the site policy, I'd like to know so I can leave a note on my profile page. Raylan13 (talk) 16:45, March 21, 2014 (UTC)
So I'm clear to get my squad together with the BF?--17:46, March 21, 2014 (UTC)
It's obviously based on one of those shrike weapons but it doesn't precisely match any of the ones I've looked at. That IRL weapon is hard to find actual concrete info on -- from what I've read, the IRL one is a conversion for an AR15-type rifle as opposed to an actually separate weapon. Юра 02:29, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
An interesting idea...
Whilst I am getting my team together I wanted to ask you something. A while ago I asked if I could be promoted to leader in anticipation of my squad but was rejected. I understand why I was rejected but last afternoon, I had an interesting idea. Is it possible to make further ranks in the platoon? For the sake of speed, I'm going to type both replies to the answers yes and no. (This is not me trying to appear overly forward but rather trying to keep things moving as I if it's going to happen the new guys will have to have experienced it from the start rather than being (what would appear to be) demoted a few days in.)
If the answer is yes then my idea is to introduce a new layer to our platoon. This being Founders at the top, Leaders second highest, Wiki members below them then finally Reserves at the bottom. The difference between wiki members and reserves is that wiki members would have an account here and edit, whilst reserves do not have an account or edit extremely rarely. Reserves would essentially be people we get who are on our friends lists to join the platoon but are not willing to commit to editing. Essentially, founders organize things, leaders order everyone below them on the field but wiki members can order reserves. This is similar to how a real military works with lieutenants being able to order sergeants who order corporals who order privates. This may seem at first like a way to just be extremely hierarchical to new guys but it would actually cause people to want to get involved with wikia giving us more editors which (in my opinion) is a positive.
n.b. This would also allow for me to keep command over my friends with a system as they would have a general sense of authority without me having to apply for leadership. I would actually still be lower than everyone else only being able to keep in charge of my units. (and you guys don't have to invest a great deal of trust into me.)
If the answer is no then
damn it can you suggest any alternatives? I would rather have some command over my friends (who can be quite disobedient) then just be seemingly on par with them (and quite frankly that would be exactly how it would be).
10:06, March 23, 2014 (UTC)
I think the "chain-of-command" (Admins > Active guys > Wikia guys > Friends and partly active guys) proposal is quite interesting, and I think we could profit from that, as our Platoon would be more open to other people (and thus become bigger) but at the same time would not result in a loose-collection of wikia-memebers and non-members, but rather having a core of wikia-members and then their friends around as "back-up". --Oorah! 11:19, March 23, 2014 (UTC)(ROK) DK0010
Where do I apply?
Give me the direction and I'll make an application. I'm pretty confident I can win people on this one. It's a shame however we can't have more in depth platoon ranks...--18:56, March 23, 2014 (UTC)
- It makes more sense to have them all in one place. I was also planning on merging the Dog Tag page with the collectible Dog Tag page. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 04:18, March 25, 2014 (UTC)
That's equivalent to saying we should allow IRL equivalents in the main body of every section of any given page. It's not really the same thing. Besides that, like 90% of the knives have their IRL basis in the description, and those that don't might not be based on a specific model of knife. Boot knives, for instance, have existed in that form for centuries. Юра 03:41, March 25, 2014 (UTC)
- It only seems like a different case because the pages are very steamlined compared to most weapon-pages. If they were expanded (which they could be, because physical descriptions + infoboxes can be pretty decent-length), it would be the same as with any other weapon. If we start doing this for BF4 knives, then we should apply the same rules to the other knives on that page -- and if you do that to, say, the BFV knife, you'll see why I don't think that's a good idea. It would make up a good fourth of the section's info. Юра 03:54, March 25, 2014 (UTC)
Sure, I'll see what I can do. Just need to dig up that PDF of the manual, it's hiding here somewhere...
By the way, apologies for my absence in past few weeks, I recently had some major issues in my personal life that kept me from doing much. Luckily, that's all taken care of now, and I'm really looking forward to helping out here again. Just point me where you need me. -22:56, March 25, 2014 (UTC)
- And it's done. Just need to track down some images. Let me know if there's anything else I can do. - :03:42, March 27, 2014 (UTC)
How do you license wallpapers properly? Thanks!--10:53, March 26, 2014 (UTC)
Ok thanks... looking at it, it must have been an edit glitch.
on a side note, do you mind if I handle that new guy, slow reader (I think)? I know what's going on with his editing screen and need practice talking (which is apparent from recent... stuff...). What 'cha say? you can monitor my interactions with him if you don't trust me. please?-- 18:32, March 27, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you--18:39, March 27, 2014 (UTC)
Templating my sig
As a special thank you for trusting me with SR, I've decided to template my sig as I know how much you hate the code. However, there are two conditions:
1. The template has to be different from my original sig template. I want to keep that for special occasions still.
2. The template link has to be something simple to compensate for it replacing the usual need of pressing 4 ~. I'm still keeping the code in my preferences for when I take a little trip to another wiki on those rare occasions I feel like editing something else. Something about typing signatures +hyperborrean22 +whatever else seems a bit too tedious.

Hey, I was thinking; what gives us the right to avatars and profile images? they're not ours and they technically steel the owners image. How do I license them even!? I'm sure there's a great reason but I would appreciate an answer. Thanks!-- 13:41, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Help Has Arrived
If you look at my userpage, you'll see that i radically overhauled it and fixed the order of things. No longer are the userboxes messing up and other things. Do you want my secrets? -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 02:34, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
- Your ipod edits just as well as my phone. Anyway, like the userpage? -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 03:59, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
Got a question
Hayo, this may be probably be perceived as paranoid and anti social (It's me, what do you expect?) but it's more precautionary and not even possible right now. Is it possible to ban a user from editing a single page (ie. my talk)? I would like to say this is just to know for the future. I got no way to even predict the users involved in this right now. thanks!--11:14, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
Here is a gold mine for you. Numerous chapters of CTW can be found here! If it says youve reach your reading limit, just go back to the previous page to fix it. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 01:42, April 10, 2014 (UTC)
- You can do the same to center your three awards in a horizontal row and perfectly align all your userboxes below. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 03:11, April 11, 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I see your not up for informing me of page specific blocking. I don't really mind. It's irrelevant right now anyway.
I wanted to ask if there is a way to centralize text in a table so I can have headers regarding the multiplayer dog tags. Any ideas? Thanks!--09:55, April 12, 2014 (UTC)
Can you look over Floux's and mine images taken from our PS4. Maybe I'm being picky but I think one picture may be licensed incorrectly. Just my opinion though, it's entirely possible the licenses are both correct.
