Danke schön, mein Freund. It is good to be back. :)23:08, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
- Absolutely no problem at all, you two deserved it. 23:16, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
Hey thanks for fixing the infoboxes which mysteriously turned white as I didnt have the time to do it myself. Speaking of it, did you change the infobox text color to black? If so can you change it back as black is impossible to see on a dark grey background. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 04:17, December 5, 2014 (UTC)
Its fine. For the background though we will need a vote on it to make it official. Wish I could help with it but Ive always had problems with backgrounds. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 07:29, December 24, 2014 (UTC)
- Sounds good, man. About time for a Hardline background. -- A2AContact 21:13, December 31, 2014 (UTC)
Countdown to War Edit
Hardline Map Names Edit
Re: High Tension Edit
- Alright, thanks! I've been rather inactive lately but I'm trying to keep up on new information now... -- A2AContact 19:46, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
Jorge contacted you via email about the upcoming event right? He originally asked me but I refered him to you since I cant go do to having no leave in the USAF at the moment. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 23:32, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
Hello, Apprentice125! Uh, thanks for the welcome to the wiki! Personally, I want to contribute here as much as possible, however, don't worry, I don't see the need to be a moderator or admin or anything. :) The reason why I joined was basically to fill in the many blanks on the wiki, and considering that I am an avid BF4 player (believe it or not I actually don't own it, but I play it all the time at my friend's place, but I'm working on building a gaming PC of my own), I want to fill them in as much as possible to help others looking for info! Thanks so much, and I really appreciate it!
Roger that! Thanks so much, really appreciate it. Also, uh, one more thing. When creating that flag-chart template as seen right beneath the equipment template on flood zone, what template is there to create that chart, or how do I even do it? Thanks!
Technical Problem Edit
Hey, Apprentice 125, so, while filling in what equipment the combatants have in Conquest on Caspian Border, but when trying to create a redirecting link for the M1161 ITV, it claims no such article exists. Could you check it out? I have no idea what's up. Thanks, and stay frosty.
Weapon License? Edit
- Hua. I would remove the hyperlink for it however as that doesnt deserve a page by it self, aside from mentioning it in an article sonewhere. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 07:40, January 25, 2015 (UTC)
Silk Road Rush Edit
Hey, Apprrentice, I just had a question about the Rush gamemode on Silk Road after the September 2014 patch. I'm not sure if you could help with this, but how much did Rush on Silk Road change after the patch? I'm unable to find out because I'm building a gaming PC for BF4, so I essentially can't play it :I sorry, mate. Thanks though!
Or, hold on. All I need to know is what are the vehicles used by the defenders in the 3rd stage?
Silk Road Edit
Hey! So, uh, hope I did a good job with finishing up Silk Road. Does it look like anything's wrong with it/needs work? http://battlefield.wikia.com/wiki/Silk_Road
Really Just Wanted to Say... Edit
Giants of Karelia Edit
Yo! hey, I just had a quick request: could you possibly find the map overview for Giants of Karelia, and I mean map overview in the sense of this:
Regarding Giants, I can't find one anywhere for it. Thanks!
Hardline Assignment project Edit
Hey AP I have a job for you. We now have access to all 257 Assignments for Hardline. Can you add them to the Battlefield Hardline Assignments page? After its all said and done, we'll decide if we need to or not on how to divy up the page like we did for BF4 assingments. You can find a video of ALL 257 assignments here. You'll need to get the images off Battlelog, however though Ive also asked Bela94 to obtain the images as well. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 02:50, February 4, 2015 (UTC)
Giants of Karelia Edit
Yo! Thanks for adding the commander resource things - I forgot to add them after I revamped the descriptions XD Also, have you been able to find a map of the general area of Giants of Karelia? If not, no worries, take your time. I'm just unable to find anything wherever I go :P stay frosty!
Only In Battlefield Video Errors Edit
- Yeah I agree about darker colors, and grouping together is good as well. It could possibly be applied to other games, but Hardline has lots of faction weapons while other games only have a few, and Hardline has a clear Blue=Cops and Red/Orange=Criminals theme, while other games it would be harder to associate a color with each faction. What colors do you think would look good for "Default" and "Assignment"? I just used white and gold but we could change those. :P -- A2AContact 23:05, February 16, 2015 (UTC)
- Alright, I'll mess with it and see what looks good. (Oh, and feel free to copy my sandbox code to yours if you want to mess with it.)
Hey, seems the color is in some templates but not others. It's in the code of each one, rather than a global setting.
- If you want to go around removing it from each template, that would be helpful. -- A2AContact 23:48, February 16, 2015 (UTC)
- Hmm, the background is default gray now, but we don't have border between sections. Seems like the white makes up the border between sections, making it look at lot better. It'd be better to set the default BG to white, and key in the grey for each box. -- A2AContact 00:13, February 17, 2015 (UTC)
- Nice work! Goes a lot better with the new theme. I would have done more of it but I handed off the computer. Now for us to find colors for the WiP...? -- A2AContact 01:24, February 17, 2015 (UTC)
Final Stand DLC map overviews Edit
Yo, Apprentice! Have you made any progress finding the map overviews to the four Final Stand DLC maps?
Yeah, sure thing! also, sorry to hear you were in the hospital. You okay? What happened? ;-;
I finished adding the text updates to Giants of Karelia, and I will add map layout photos soon. And regarding Operation Whiteout, don't expect me to delete anything, because looking at it, Patch is doing one helluva job there. I may just add a few details he left out and add on to the text. :P Stay frosty!
Licensing Images Edit
Alright, I got the previous message, and thanks for the heads-up. Just a quick question. How do I exactly license an image, because when I looked I couldn't find a clear explanation. :P sorry, I sound like a total noob. And just to be clear, you found the map overviews for the Final Stand maps? Where? Stay frosty
Hey, finally got the hang of licensing the images, and I did it for all of the ones on Giants of Karelia. I'm looking for images of map layouts for Operation Whiteout , and I've found all but ones for Obliteration and Defuse. I'm not worried about the Defuse one, cause no one ever plays it. However, could you find a map overview for Obliteration on Whiteout and upload it? Thanks, mate. Stay frosty!
Yo! Thanks so much, man! You just did me a huge favor! :D hope it wasn't too much of a hassle though ;) thanks to that roadblock being fixed, I'm gonna finally add the map layouts to Op. Whiteout and then I'm moving on to do work on Lost Islands. :D THANKS! Stay frosty.
They Must Know! Edit
Going to sleep for work in the morning but maybe you can write a story on this. REMEMBER! It is vital you SHOOT THE LIMBS OFF or YOU WILL DIE. Thanks be to the Marker for We shall be whole again! -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 04:43, February 26, 2015 (UTC)
YouTube Channel RecommendationsEdit
You're right about the Hardline dirt bikes, both the cop and criminal bikes are KLR650 models, so they should be on the same page.
I haven't been able to identify the criminal helicopters yet, I was looking through some helis the other day, but no match yet. At least we already know the models of the police choppers.
About that couch - Visceral devs mentioned it when I was at EA. Apparently it is an Easter Egg "vehicle" which can be entered and "driven", and can allegedly be found somewhere on Dust Bowl. -- A2AContact 19:51, March 9, 2015 (UTC)
Go for it. Ill be pocking it up tomarrow as well during my lunch but I probably wont even touch SP until this weekend. Until then hold down the SP Fort! -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 04:12, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
Hardline Images Edit
New Hardline Videos Edit
4K renders Edit
I made this winrar archive with 4K renders compressed with PNGGauntlet for minimum filesize.
Feel free to download http://www.megafileupload.com/1K0b/Battlefield_&_Call_of_Duty.rar
Hardline Gold Knives Edit
Yeah, Ill probably ask for it one of these days. Since my PS4 is connected to my youtune account, however, it may just be easier to add videos to the channel rather than upload them. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 04:52, April 14, 2015 (UTC)
We've Gone Black Edit
- The Hardline and BF4 DLC map pages could use some work. Also, yes the background is black. I know Wikia has been doing some changes to their format but this is the first time Im seeing our background missing. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 05:56, May 22, 2015 (UTC)
1942 Aircraft Picture Mission Edit
Transport Helicicopter of BFHL IRL FOUND! Edit
Found the IRL counterpart of the Transport Helicopter (Battlefield Hardline)! Turns out it IS a Black Hawk but it ISNT! Its actually the Sikorsky S-70 which became the original Black Hawk!. Its more or less the civilian variant. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 05:09, May 23, 2015 (UTC)
Around a week ago I added some categories to the M16 page. They were then removed with no explanation. Now, I'm sure the user had a perfectly good reason why he did so and as a result I would like to know so I don't re-offend and get myself blocked. I realised as an admin you may be able to shed some light on why the categories were removed. I'm merely asking out of respect, please do not block me for enquiring.
Thank you :)
Oh ok. that makes perfect sense. Thank you! :)
Re: L96 Rename Edit
USAF is sending me to Florida this Friday for a week until August 14th so I'll be gone and unable to perform any admin duties in the meantime. Its up to you. --awyman13 (Talk/Work) 21:47, August 2, 2015 (UTC)
We’re reaching out to a few of our top communities, hoping to get you on board with the migration to the new infobox markup. And we have tools to help!
Why we’re doing this
Simply put: Most current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and indeed any device that doesn’t use desktop-style displays. On desktops and laptops, they often look amazing. The problem is that Wikia’s traffic is trending mobile.
There is an important graph from our forum post about infoboxes a couple weeks back, and I want to share it here as well:
Mobile is the future. Not just for Wikia, but for the web as a whole. Take a look at the recent trends and future growth predictions for mobile traffic - it's staggering.
We partnered with the Wikia community to create this new markup to make sure that your hard work can be displayed on mobile devices (as well as any future technologies) easily and without any new coding conventions. It’ll take some effort up front, to be sure, but we’re here to help, and the work you put in now will pay for itself tenfold in the future.
Tools we’ve designed to ease the process
We’ve enabled two new features on your community. One is a tool for migrating the “old” infobox code to the new markup. It identifies templates on your wikia that look like infobox templates and places a box on the right rail of the template page. When you click the “Generate draft markup” button in this box, it opens a new tab containing a draft of your infobox using the new markup.
The second is a new feature on Special:Insights that will highlight which infoboxes on your wikia have not been migrated to the new infobox markup. It’s fairly intuitive - you can click on the infobox title link itself to see the old markup, or simply click the “Convert!” button on the right, which performs the same action as the “Generate draft markup” button.
This is our help page for the new markup. I’ll help get things rolling by converting a template or two as an example if you’d like me to, as well as watching this forum post for any questions.
After surviving the hot and humid lands of Florida for a week I've FINALLY returned! In other news the new background and theme looks great! Think you could get a header for the theme to go at the top of the page? It appears as a black bar when scrolling all the way up on the page. Im in the process of updating myself on past events for the week. Keep me posted. --awyman13 (Talk/Work) 01:44, August 16, 2015 (UTC)
Criminal Activity Masks Edit
Image MissionEditCan you make this image Survivalist page? --awyman13 (Talk/Work) 16:54, August 17, 2015 (UTC)
- If its not too much trouble, can you also add the three Bounty Hunter coin images? --awyman13 (Talk/Work) 17:09, August 17, 2015 (UTC)
- Turns out I no longer have the rights to edit the Widget or any other. Makes less sense since Im the one who created it in the first place. I'll have to have staff look into it.
Robbery Scout Helicopter Edit
Do you know what vehicle that is on Battlelog for the Scout Helicopter? We already have a disambig for it so preferaby we dont want to make a page for that name. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 02:06, August 25, 2015 (UTC)
RE: Videos Edit
No prob, man!16:20, August 25, 2015 (UTC)
Portable Infobox CompleteEdit
The infobox conversion you asked me to do has been complete for some time now... Just was a little busy and forgot to reach out to you!
You can see it live on this page here;
and you can approve the draft and make it the standard infobox for weapon infoboxes here;
Let me know if you have any questions,
Summer Patch Subpage Edit
The Summer patch doesnt really need a subpage with Night Ops. We also never give patches their own pages, rather we note the changes on their respective pages. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 05:13, September 2, 2015 (UTC)

High res BFHL attachmentsEdit
Would you render these BFHL attachments?
