Hey, you might want to make you archive link a color other than red, as it makes them look like redlinks. -- A2AContact 22:02, March 16, 2014 (UTC)


They would need to be taken from the game files of Battlelog. You cant just copy and save them. awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 18:14, March 17, 2014 (UTC)


Never mind about the freaking classification thing. And you need to put your signature in a template. (You can just make the same template on another wiki if it's a problem.) -- A2AContact 19:22, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

? .... You will not be blocked... -- awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 19:32, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

Hyper. Everybody has template sigs. There's no problem it could possibly cause. Sorry, but I'm not blocking you. That's not a proper use of admin responsibilities. UserMonthRibbon ArrowTwoActual talk

Lol, you guys are closer to Gamescom and get special editions of the game. :P Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 17:53, March 18, 2014 (UTC)

I'll be on later today, but I'm probably still busy thirty minutes from now. And I was referring to steelbooks, I sort of have an obsession with collecting them. :p Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 18:02, March 18, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I have both steelbooks for BF3 and BF4, though the latter is smaller (G2 size, I think, exact same size as PS4/Xbox One cases). There's something addicting about them. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 18:43, March 18, 2014 (UTC)


Yep, similar to how Activision released Call of Duty Online in China as well. These kinds of games are hardly known outside of their respective countries and are only featured in Western media when they're announced. Once released, they're never heard from/featured again. Asian market games tend to reuse a lot of assets, and could be deemed subpar, at least from my point of view (compared to the titles they're based on). Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 07:54, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

It's Korean, not Chinese -.- ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 13:35, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Apologies for the oversight, though, a lot of the descriptions and names are written in Chinese. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 17:12, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Actually, it seems after further research it was developed for the Korean, Chinese, and Taiwanese game markets. I still apologize for the initial assumption that it was developed only for the Chinese market. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 17:23, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, keep up the editing, man. And the apology was directed at Yuri. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 18:07, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

It has stopped working for me (again). I'll check out the forum in a bit. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 16:50, March 22, 2014 (UTC)


The CoC isn't a bad idea (if it is a bit too complex for a very small platoon), and BL interface only supports the user flags Founder and Leader. If you'd like to take charge of getting squads together, you could ask the other admins what they think about making you a Leader. I'm fine with it if they are. -- A2AContact 16:02, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

Oh, and template your freaking sig already! If it does not include images, there are no problems it could cause cross-wiki. Trust me, I understand this stuff. I'll help you with it if need be. -- A2AContact 16:10, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

Just ask Awy or PLR about it. -- A2AContact 23:41, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

New User Forum

Hyper I know your trying to encourage new users to post on the forum but you should not write on it. It is only meant to have New Users on it, thats it. -- awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 17:03, March 23, 2014 (UTC)


You need not ask for permission to email someone else (or me, for that matter). What you choose to do is your choice and yours alone. What you asked almost sounded like you're asking permission to speak, which is something not required, ever. This is a democracy, after all. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 17:45, March 24, 2014 (UTC)

Understood. I was clarifying that you do not need to ask for permission to email. I am a witness to this, yes. I did not mean otherwise. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 19:01, March 24, 2014 (UTC)

What are you referring to (on the front page of Battlelog)?

Also, in regards to your request for becoming a Leader on the BF Wiki Platoon, I have no problem with that. I'd confirm with Awy and if he approves, him or I will proceed to grant you Leader status. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 17:44, March 26, 2014 (UTC)

Don't add references headers to pages that don't have references. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 18:10, March 28, 2014 (UTC)

That page used to have references on it back before I became the lead editor on refractor games. I removed the references but forgot to remove the actual reflist. If a page has a header like that but no references are listed that means it should be removed because it has no references. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 18:21, March 28, 2014 (UTC)
If there were references on a page without the reflist template or <references/>, there would be an error at the bottom of the page saying "<ref> tags exist but no <references/> tag was found".
So to put it shortly, no. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 18:31, March 28, 2014 (UTC)
Example. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 18:33, March 28, 2014 (UTC)

I have no idea what you're talking about. If there were a loose ref tag it would blank everything afterward and give that same error. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 18:39, March 28, 2014 (UTC)

To add to that only the Reflist template go under the references section, you dont put links under there. On top of that i havent a clue why you deleted the leaked content off the expansions like you were supposed to but decided to leave the link to the leaked content that was added.-- awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 19:49, March 28, 2014 (UTC)

There's no point having either on an article with no ref tags, period. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 21:05, March 28, 2014 (UTC)


It wasn't your edit that screwed it, it's that someone left one of these: | around, messing with the archive template. -- A2AContact 21:44, March 28, 2014 (UTC)


If you want to use your sig on multiple wikis, just create a template with the same name, on each wiki you edit on. That's what I do. That way you can put the template in your prefs and still sign with ~~~~. -- A2AContact 19:11, March 29, 2014 (UTC)


I was aware. While upgrading servers is DiCEs top priority, making a blog about it is not mine. Feel free when you have time -- awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 17:07, April 3, 2014 (UTC)

MP Tags

You do realize there are 650 dog tags right? -- awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 15:00, April 5, 2014 (UTC)

Re: Profile Images/Avatars

Just license them the same as you would any image. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 13:52, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

As uploading avatars is ubiquitous across the entire internet, I think it's just accepted that they can't and don't need to be licensed. They're just to "represent" a user, we're not claiming to own the image.

Putting images on a page, on the other hand, would be seen more as taking ownership of said images, which is why we must license them to show the real owner and avoid copyright trouble.

In short: Don't worry about avatars, but be sure to license any image used on your profile with fairuse, noting the source and copyright holder. -- A2AContact 14:44, April 7, 2014 (UTC)

Listen Well.

  • Dont undermine Me or Any other Admins
  • Dont intrude on warnings given by admins unless your involved
  • Know your place. Remember, your not a TU

-- awyman13FandomStaff.png (Talk/Work) 17:02, April 10, 2014 (UTC)


I've already told you. You cannot protect pages for or against a single user. And it's not your place to. As we've told you several times, we the admins will of course deal with any offenses, no need to be so paranoid.

If you want to break up the dogtags by headers, I reccomend that you just end the table, add a ==Header== or ===Subheader===, and then start a new table. Breaks it up better. See Battlefield 2142 Online Ranks, for example. -- A2AContact 15:30, April 12, 2014 (UTC)

Chat (when you're on)

Thanks, mate. Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 17:19, April 12, 2014 (UTC)

Simply put, no way. I'm literally afraid by now guys. When I think of this place, I am sad. You have treat with me suspicion and aggression to even back hand comments of mine and it's so evident even my dumb brain can pick up on it. There's punishment then there's overkill. I'll finish my pages and then go. I'm sure you'll write me off a paranoid maniac but being a normal human feels impossible with you. I hope your happy you've convinced me to leave, I'm only relieved at this point. I'll see you around but don't expect me to reply to the hateful things you've got planned. Hyperborrean22Talk 20:19, April 12, 2014 (UTC)

We're being hateful (really? Hateful?) and punishing you? No. The only issue I even have is how paranoid you are about users coming after you (something which has never happened on here).
I'm not trying to make you leave. Some other users may treat you with suspicion, yes. It would just be better if both you and them would back off a bit and try to be cooperative instead of defensive and aggressive. Stay or leave if you want to, I'm not gonna waste my breath (typing?) arguing about it. -- A2AContact 23:22, April 12, 2014 (UTC)

@Hyper: What in the hell? I only wished to talk to you about the country dog tags (standardization of naming, proper licensing, etc.) in chat, if your message is what you are referring to.
Per Arrow, what is troubling you? I have barely read your discussion with Arrow regarding the potential users who are coming to cause a commotion. As he has stated before, if they do end up doing something, appropriate action will be taken against them.
Regarding your apparent paranoia: you've committed a wrong before, we all have. There's no reason to feel upset about it, or to think we are continuously "suspicious" of you or any other user. It's best to learn from these mistakes and not continue them.
I apologize if I or anyone else here has made the wiki an upsetting place for you. I implore you to stay, take it easy for a bit, and continue on. You're a quality editor who has much ahead of him, this I am sure of.

"England is watching"

Listen, you pretentious little shit.

I have no tolerance for bullshit. One more remark like that, if I get even the slightest sense that you're planning some idiocy, or trying to undermine me or anybody else on this wiki, and it's back to a block. I wasn't kidding when I said that I'm watching you like a hawk, and that little quip isn't exactly helping your standing in my eyes. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 02:51, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
