PS4 Lineup Video[]

Hey there, Awyman13, my name is Doug from Wikia's Community Development team. We recently created a PS4 Lineup video that features Battlefield 4 and would love to have it hosted on the featured media section of your mainpage. You can find the video here: Your decision on whether to implement.

Thank you and have a good one! TheBlueRogue (profile)•(talk)•(email) 23:46, November 15, 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations![]

On being one of our Wiki's finest, the Administrators. I definitely thought you were eligible for the position. Keep up the good work! 75 Ranger Regiment Coat Of Arms.png Rangers Lead The Way Ranger Tab.png 03:16, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Recker construction[]

The stuff that this anon put in on Recker is really bad, and I'm not really up for revising it all. Can I just delete it and put in my own? I know his intentions were good, but it's just really poor quality. He would skip events of missions, the grammar is lacking, and it doesn't fit typical uniform standards. For example, he put in detailed recounting of Hawkins' crash, but just skipped everything between the factory and school. Since it isn't the main article of the missions, it's just supposed to be short, right? I feel like I need to re-write it all. Bleh. 23:03, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Blackburn's page just says how he recounted his POV of the campaign to the agents. It doesn't actually explain mission-for-mission. Even Marlowe isn't that explicit. I'm thinking about just briefly writing up the missions' events within a few sentences per mission. Bleh. 23:20, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Confirmed weapons for SA, leak or no leak?[]

I was scouring the web for info on any upcoming expansion packs and I found some interesting things involving SA:

We all know the AS VAL and the F2000 is confirmed, but I also read that there is the M60E4, the DAO-12, and golly Bad Company! The GOL! My concern is is it considered leaked or is it a glitch with the patch again? If I am given the go I will add these three to the list.

RE: Achievements[]

Hi again.

Achievements have been discussed and very strongly rejected previously (see here). I personally stand by the arguments against them made in that forum.

However, you rightly point out that times have changed, and achievements have been successful on other wikis. Furthermore, with less activity and fewer active users, the current bureaucracy is no longer fit for purpose.

My suggestion would be that if you think this will help, discuss it with whoever is active at the moment and if you can agree, then perhaps give it a trial. - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 11:42, November 27, 2013 (UTC)

Some image questions[]

Hi again. I've decided I can do some image work for being lucky enough to own BF:BC2, BF3 and BF4 on PC as well as one that can run them smoothly (most or all images I'll take will be on high/ultra at 1080p), but I'd ask a few questions if that's ok.

  1. After taking a few looks at other images on other pages, it seems other people including admins have used public domain to license in-game screenshots, do I use that as well, instead of fair use?
  1. Do you prefer images with transparent background (such as this) or without it? Cropping it out takes another 5-10 minutes of work per image so if it makes the image worse or simply not notably better, I might not do it.
  1. I assume it's alright if I remove the current images from pages simultaneously when I replace if they're low quality and obsolete? And for that matter, do you guys do anything about unused images?

Alright. To use the fair use license on in-game screenshots, I assume it would be {{Fair|Gameplay|© 2013, Electronic Arts. All rights reserved}} or something (I honestly can't come up with a proper "source" for something taken from your own gameplay)? -- Magpul Battlelog.png MLGisNot4Me talk

Furthermore, the community has every right to debate and vote on anything - he has no right to ban a proposal and if he tries that constitutes an abuse of his privileges, which the community can easily revoke, and a blockable offence - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 20:12, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

Both Joe and Ranger have today announced to me their intention to retire from the wiki. That leaves the wiki without an active bureaucrat (I can't stay myself, my dissertation is on the horizon).

Neutraliser (talk) 20:44, December 3, 2013 (UTC)Luis

Just to clear something up: frequent editing does not equate to excessive editing or "spamming" (unless the user is making very small edits to the same page repeatedly within a very short timeframe (which no one has done, IIRC).

Re: BF Pic[]

I recommend print screening (PRNT SCRN) and then pasting the little icon to get the image. It wouldn't let me re-upload it to here because it detected a duplicate. Mind you it is very small (20x20). Flag of Iran.pngPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON.png 00:10, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Fluid[]

Can you screenshot the problem as you see it, because everything looks fine to me. Fluid just means the content auto-resizes to the size of the screen better for widescreen and tablets. It does, however, mean any content set to a specific width has to be done so as a percentage of the screen width rather than a set number of pixels. If you can show me where the problem is, I can fix it. - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 13:00, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

I think fluid is supposed to look like that - it's certainly not something we can change ourselves. It looks similar to your screenshots on my phone, but still looks normal on my laptop. If you come across anything else that doesn't work that can be changed, it would be useful to know.
As for the Neutraliser situation, I agree. I've given him a warning for the category adding thing, but also suggested he ask for help if he needs it. I take it Jack of All knows something about CTW? Hopefully between all of us we can help to resolve the situation soon. - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 13:30, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

Redundant articles[]

I saw you wrote up a new page for Weapon Crate, but I already wrote up this subject under Supply Drop (Singleplayer). As we shouldn't have two different pages for the same subject, we should find a way to merge them. I personally think it's a good idea to keep the old page, as it includes the section about BF:BC2. Maybe we should rename the old page to "Weapon Crate"?

Hello! I've been trying to help out with images here on the wiki, and I had a question about adding images to the infoboxes for some of the kit pages. Currently, more-or-less every game before Bad Company 2 has no image in the infoboxes for the kits, so I was wondering if it'd be okay if I start going back and adding some images for the games I'm able to. However, some of the games (namely BF2 with SF and 1942) have way too many factions to use a tabber for, so I wanted to know if I could use the "Favorite Class" image, like the one below for BF2's Anti-Tank kit, for those games in the infobox and leave the character images in the gallery like they already are for the BF2 kits. Sorry to bother you with this, but I've been really wanting to help out around here, and working with media seems to be something I'm good at, so I'd like to know how to proceed.

Thanks,

Thanks for the go-ahead. I made some changes to the Anti-Tank page, everything look good? The only thing that may be out of line is the tabber I added for the actual character models, otherwise all the images clutter up the page if they're just in a gallery .

"Purple"[]

Hey, I've noticed something;  on that auto 'welcome' message, it still says that b'crats have a purple color? For obvious reasons, is there a way to change this? It's really out-of-date and kinda bugs me. Bleh. 04:30, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Heads Up[]

Just a heads up - Neutraliser's block has expired and I noticed he made a single edit again yesterday. I'm assuming in good faith that he is simply ignorant of our policies as opposed to deliberately breaking them and have left him a message accordingly. Nevertheless, keep an eye on him if he starts editing again... - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 12:24, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Edit Tracks[]

Sadly, I'm very busy with work at the moment, so I can't find time for any major editing, achievements included. I don't think there should be any rush with them, but I'll have a quick glance. Maybe they should be disabled until after we find time to customise them? I am not intending to stay beyond the middle of next week at the latest, so I hope your move goes well and you can get yourself set back up soon. - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 22:37, December 14, 2013 (UTC)

We seem to have run into an edit conflict, should we go one by one at adding spoiler templates (decided in chat)? BFBC2 UMP45 ICON.pngX-AltClickBF3 G53 ICON.png

Assignments[]

I'll would happily help out, but you seem to have already sorted most of them. Is there a list of ones left to do that I could work through, perhaps? - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 13:28, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

No problem, I'll work on it later today.

RE: Tabber[]

I detest tabber with absolute unrivalled passion. It is ugly, inconvenient, slows down the page and screws up the page navigation. In my view, it should never, ever be used in the mainspace - hence I removed it. If the page is too long to have on a single page, it should be split, never tabbed. - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 16:12, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

To be honest, I don't see anything wrong with the length they're at currently. If you have instructed Arrow to split it then that's fine. Once it's split, there should be no need for a tabber of any kind (Yuri's included) on the assignment pages - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 16:22, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

My thing isn't finished. Besides that, I intended it only for excessively long pages like Wake Island or M16. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image.gif  16:25, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Why did you delete those pages? Did you move them somewhere else?

Re: Re:[]

Alright, thanks for the help. I tried to fix it by copying the source from a previous version, but I'm not familiar with how to do that. I must be missing it when it's right in front of my face

Spoiler Template[]

Hey, thanks for getting rid of those images for X-Alt while I was offline.

I was just wondering if we could change the "Click here to reveal them" sentence of the spoiler template to another color, let's say, white? Anything that will make it stand out more. Flag of Iran.pngPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON.png 15:18, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for getting back to me, just wanted to see what you'd think. Flag of Iran.pngPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON.png 18:23, December 22, 2013 (UTC)
Alright, so I changed it to white. Looks better now that it is more clear to the user that it is supposed to be clicked on. Flag of Iran.pngPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON.png 18:38, December 22, 2013 (UTC)

Redirects for assignment pages  []

Hey, I added redirects for each of the BF3 Premium "Specialist" assignments (JNG-90 Specialist, MTAR Specialist, etc.), as they had pages linking to them. Do I need to do this for any other individual assignment pages? UserMonthRibbon.png ArrowTwoActual talk

Username Colours[]

Sorry, I didn't mean to change the staff colour. I haven't been sleeping and have been making a few mistakes here and there, so thanks for pointing that out. I intended to change helpers and VSTF to purple as they were a garish shade of pink and I was trying to tone it down slightly because it looked better. I've hopefully managed to change the helper & VSTF colour to how I wanted it without messing with the Staff colour this time! - Bondpedia (Contact) [ User of the Month: July 2010 Administrator and Bureaucrat Veteran ] 07:03, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Spoiler[]

While I completely understand why they may be needed, I feel it is hindering the basic premise of a Wiki (that is, presenting content). We need consistency, so it is one or the other. Not to mention spoilers in the infoboxes themselves, which was one of my points on the forum. The current template will not be going away, it will be simply implemented in the style of the one prior to our most recent-adopted system (as in not being interactive or hiding anything). It will not be clickable, and will be placed where it is needed (in the required section or at the top). As for just having it on the games' pages, well, like I said, consistency.

I've archived both forum threads. Going to work on the spoiler template now. Let's begin to undo all the interactive spoiler templates. They will now be present where they belong (in a section that contains spoilers). I'll give an example once I'm done.
