Featured Content

I've updated the stuff for August's Featured Content, but could you check if I've missed anything. Too busy on my HMS Illustrious (R-06) model! (will post pictures soon!) VandalAwardHeatedPeteTalk 17:45, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks

What can I say, you helped me from my start on this wiki. You have been a great friend and leader on this wiki. Without you I couldn't get UoTM or Adminship. CruzDude {Talk} {Contributions} Trusted UserEditor's AwardUoTM 21:30, August 1, 2010 (UTC)

Talk Page

Could you archive my talk page? Anything before August, thanks :D CruzDude {Talk} {Contributions} Trusted UserEditor's AwardUoTM 15:55, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Cruz's RfA

In your absence, I've archived Cruz and TMOI's RfAs, added Cruz's name to the admin list and asked a wiki staff member to change Cruz's user rights to sysop. As with above, could you check the archive and rights upgrade, in case there is anything that has been missed VandalAwardHeatedPeteTalk 16:36, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Yay!! All done. Hope that I did everything ok... did I? VandalAwardHeatedPeteTalk 18:04, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Can I get my rollback back?

I'm tired of the fact of how when I see vandalism, I have to act lickity split on the matter. Rollback rights can only help the wiki has there is no to abuse them (to vandalize of course, and you know I have never in my 1,600 main space edits ever vandalized). I have had tons of experience on Wikia, and I am an admin on the Splinter Cell Wiki (the game of which I am playing right now) and on the Made Up Characters Wiki (official COD wiki fan fiction). TheManOfIron and I have stopped bitching at each other at the moment (can't tell you when the next bitch fight will happen). SergantPeter Griffen BoyRadio Operator AwardRibbon

Userpages

I don't know what to do about them, TMOI shows how not to have one, yet at the same time we need to protect a user's rights. What do you think about Userpages? I have been giving out warnings (which usually won't ever lead to blocks) for editing someone else's userpage wrongfully.

Other Wikia Friends

I was thinking about our Wikia friends (only one COD Wiki) and I thought, why not try to get one or two more new wiki friends? I was thinking that we should stick with an FPS Wiki, like MOH Wiki. CruzDude {Talk} {Contributions} AdministratorEditor's AwardUoTM 23:37, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Very true. But MOH Wiki is in need of desperate help. FPS_Headhunter LASER GUNS BEW BEW!!!! :D 23:38, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

@FPS Maybe a MOHWTF (Medal of Honor Wiki Task Force) I thought that the Combat Arms wiki (1,000+ articles) has a great community too CruzDude {Talk} {Contributions} AdministratorEditor's AwardUoTM 23:41, August 2, 2010 (UTC)


Yeah a Wiki Task Force for the MOH Wiki is a great idea. I know that the Combat Arms wiki would have a great community but I don't think of having them as our center of attention. They probably know nothing about anything here. FPS_Headhunter LASER GUNS BEW BEW!!!! :D 23:44, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

If I get MOH, I'd be willing to help. Also, lol, MOHWTF... :D ~ though are we really ready to be making a task force? There's still a tone of work to be done here, after all. Admin SSD 天皇陛下萬歳! 02:25, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

New Operation

Due to the recent debate over friendly wikis, I have decided to suggest an all-inclusive Battlefield wiki operation to send representatives out on the search for possible friendly FPS gaming wikias ( i.e. MoH and Borderlands). My plan is to send representatives out based on experience in their wiki of choice (for example, I will hope to be leading my idea for an op, Operation: Friends Across The Border, whose mission is to get B-lands wiki to be our friend). However, since everyone might not agree, I suggest putting a vote out first. HEYOO!!!

I agree. FPS_Headhunter LASER GUNS BEW BEW!!!! :D 18:51, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Right now I'm a Crat on MOH Wiki, and I play Combat Arms which has a great culture I'll see what happens CruzDude {Talk} {Contributions} AdministratorEditor's AwardUoTM 18:56, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Oh. As for Combat Arms, I've decided to quit now. The High abundance of users using overpowered guns and High Specialist+Hacker population just ruin the game for me. Pretty much most of the game is a f!*k-off. Even though I could just go to the site and launch it I still don't think of playing it. FPS_Headhunter LASER GUNS BEW BEW!!!! :D 19:00, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

I put a category on the MOH Wiki sidebar called "Related Wikis" and listed Battlefield under it. I'll MOH under our wikis related. CruzDude {Talk} {Contributions} AdministratorEditor's AwardUoTM 20:50, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry to keep whining to you but...

This blog seems to be directly attacking the CoD Wiki, and it will not be tolerated by us. There seems to be a league of users on this wiki who seem to have a vendetta against the CoD Wiki for some reason. Jealousy, maybe? Or just plain ignorance? I kindly ask you to delete that blog, and sort out this anti-CoD Wiki crap. Thanks again. --Callofduty4 (Talk) 22:32, August 3, 2010 (UTC) We are strongly against achievements, here, almost everyone, so we're doing everything possible to get rid of that stuff.

I want your side of the deal done.

I sent you my sid eof the arguement on e-mail, and if I did that, I would be a trusted user again. I want your side done. Also tell Sactage he needs to stop overreacting on IRC. I'm checking to see if names are registered, I tell him that, and he tries to ban me for user impersonation, when he knows I am changing names to see if they're registered, he must have no memory at all. SergantPeter Griffen BoyRadio Operator AwardRibbon

No, I've given you the evidence of his trolling before, check your talkpage where I reported him, my older talkpage, his talkpage and Callofduty4's talkpage. I also told you where to find other stuff where he had been trolling me as well. Now give me my damn rights, or tell me what you want, or I will never attempt to cooperate with you.

New Bond Game

Supposed to be called The Blood Stone (cheesy name). Do you think you'll get it, it is supposed to be in around by late December, and by late December they mean before Christmas, so Jews won't be offended, dang Jews. SergantPeter Griffen BoyRadio Operator AwardRibbon

Why does it seem that British people know more about British games then Americans do, but then Japanese people know more about American games then we do! DO WE GET ANYTHING IN THE GAMING INDUSTRY? Even the Call of Duty games, there's usually more British missions then American missions! SergantPeter Griffen BoyRadio Operator AwardRibbon

Well, we brits only had more missions in the early CoD games because it allowed the game to have stealth missions with the SOE/SAS. Also, in WW2, the USA just blew everything up with B-17s, so what would be the point of an american stealth mission when the whole enemy force is dead!
But in the MW series, the brits had more missions in MW1 because the main characters were british (Gaz, soap, Price) and the USMC guys just got nuked by Al-Asad. In MW2, the main part of the campaign followed TF141 who were lead by Soap and Ghost, who were brits, and IW didn't expand on the fight in the USA.

Battlefield Heroes Gun pages

I have a question for you. In Battlefield Heroes, there are two factions with different weapons, yet those weapons are equal in everything except looks and name. So my question is, should I make separate pages for them? Or should I make them into one page? If so what should be its title? Thanks, CruzDude {Talk} {Contributions} AdministratorEditor's AwardUoTM 18:27, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

If i were doing this, I'd make 3 pages- Soldier weapons, Gunner weapons, Commando weapons, and then list all the weapons for both sides and their stats.

Something like this

Soldier weapons

Royal 1/National 1- high damage, low range

Royal 2/National 2- large magazine, low damage

VandalAwardHeatedPeteTalk 18:54, August 5, 2010 (UTC)


But in Bad Company 1, the AEK-101 had the same stats as the M416, and they got different pages. SergantPeter Griffen BoyRadio Operator AwardRibbon

Well, the problem with doing separate pages for these guns is that there are so many weapons to make articles for, so jut one article with stats and tips for every gun in a class would be simpler and time effective. VandalAwardHeatedPeteTalk 19:08, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Or how about for each weapon type (Machine gun, pistol, shot gun, sniper rifle, submachine gun, etc.) CruzDude {Talk} {Contributions} AdministratorEditor's AwardUoTM 20:04, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

I like the idea of types. Just make it "Submachine Gun (Battlefield Heroes)", kinda like you did for Tank (Battlefield Heroes), Plane (Battlefield Heroes) and Jeep (Battlefield Heroes), as well as keep that article structure. Oh, and use this. Admin SSD 天皇陛下萬歳! 02:55, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

lol @ dumbass award. I agree with the userpage part, but I do not agree with TMOI's userpage. It directly insults a user calling him all sorts of stuff, and insults the entire wiki.

formally reporting the user FPS Headhunter. He BLANANTLY flamed/attacked me calling me a Nazi, which I am not, and telling me to Burn in hell. This is intimidation behavior/harassment towards me. He also deleted 2 things of of yours and his talk pages, violating code.

BFHQ question

I bought BF2 about a month ago, and have been playing it quite a bit.However, the BFHQ hasn't recorded any of my stats. Asfar as it's concerned, i havent played the game at all. even when i got an award just a few minutes ago, it didnt show up on my stats. Is there something ive been doing wrong, or something i was supposed to do? Gmanington MCCCXLII 02:05, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Make sure that the game is connected to your EA account properly, then play a few more online games, try and unlock some new weapons. If the problem still persists, email EA's customer support or which ever customer support it says on the BFHQ website. But to be honest, we're not the guys you should be asking, we're more the guys you ask for information about the games. BFBC2 ta51HeatedPeteTalk 09:18, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Is it OK if i make a link to Template:Signatures on there? It'd aid navigation quite a bit. BFBC2 ta51HeatedPeteTalk 13:35, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Featured Article

since we have two featured article nominations, and there isn't a clear winner, I think that the descision about which to feature should be made by a senior user (i.e. you, as the active b'crat). To me there are three options:

  1. Select Port Valdez as the FA
  2. Select Arica Harbour as the FA
  3. Create a vote (between PV and AH) for the FA on the nominations page, and delay the FA change

I know this may annoy some other users, but it's the best way to quickly decide what to do. BFBC2 ta51HeatedPeteTalk 15:00, August 31, 2010 (UTC)


This is a tricky one. I have actually no idea how to resolve this one. I think it would be best as a personal review. I think that we need something after equal scores to decided who wins. Maybe it could be which one has the most supports? I really don't know. NZ Richtofen Doc. Richtofen 15:20, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, it is a tricky one. But let's let BP decide BFBC2 ta51HeatedPeteTalk_ 15:23, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Seeing as DG65 now made a vote supporting Arica, both RfFAs have equal support stats. BFBC2 ta51HeatedPeteTalk 16:09, August 31, 2010 (UTC)
However, that means that Valdez is on +1 whereas Arica is on +2. This means that Arica becomes the featured article. NZ Richtofen Doc. Richtofen 16:56, August 31, 2010 (UTC)


The way I see to solve this, is a set tie-breaking criteria. I'd say the following (in this order):

  1. Which has most support votes
  2. Which has the highest vote difference (support minus oppose)
  3. Which has most support votes from admins

In the event there is still a draw (unlikely), we'll have to improvise. But under these conditions, it looks like Arica will win this time... - Bondpedia (ContactContributions) Administrator and BureaucratVeteranUser of the Month: July 2010 18:04, August 31, 2010 (UTC)


I believe two and one would swap. If it were to be like the above, 15/0/14 would beat 13/0/0. NZ Richtofen Doc. Richtofen 18:14, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, I agree with you, as it also takes into account different times nominated for. If it's been nominated longer, it might have more support votes but not necessarily as good a balance. - Bondpedia (ContactContributions) Administrator and BureaucratVeteranUser of the Month: July 2010 18:38, August 31, 2010 (UTC)
