RE: DMRs Edit
Yuri PDWs are a different class of weapons made up of submachine guns and carbines. Not much different from the DMR class in BF4 which are made up of semiautomatic sniper rifles. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 18:32, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
Yuri, many pages under construction are not incomplete. In fact they shouldnt be under construction, such as the Sniper Rifle page. So if its obvious it doesnt need any more info but its under construction, just remove it. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 19:02, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
- No info to add on the Sniper rifle page at all. How can you consider that an incomplete. Remember that it is technically a disambiguation page as well. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 19:09, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
- Wilco though i would rather you left the nav boxes alone, however. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 19:15, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
A page isn't "complete" until it's silver/gold? There's certainly a middle ground between "Incomplete" pages (pages that do not have enough info to cover the subject) and Silver/gold, which are especially good pages.
Otherwise, we'd be sticking "incomplete" to 95% of our articles, instead of focusing on the ones that really need expansion/rewriting.
What about bronze star arrow?--19:16, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
How is it not true? 42 uses hitscan. I've played 42. I've looked at stat numbers for BC2 (denkirson or whatever, where we got BC2 damage numbers from.) It says there that all bullets use identical velocity at 600 (m/s). -- A2AContact
1. That's what I meant about FB1 games, that all small arms use identical velocity. Obviously not vehicle cannons.
2. I know 2 and 2142 use actual projectiles, but are you sure that includes 1942? I've played it and it seems more like HS.
Hot damn Edit
Quite an editing spree, Yuri! Haha.07:23, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
From Their Website Edit
ARES-16 AMG-2 (from their name, ARES DEFENSE), 16 probably derived from M-16 (US mil designation of the AR-15), AMG-2 (Assault Machine Gun). Their Website. Google led me to this answer as to where this name comes from. 22:52, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
I don't mean to peak and pry but what 'cha doin'? i'm in chat now if you want to talk--08:34, March 23, 2014 (UTC)
BC Overhaul Edit
If I may ask, how did you find out about it? I thought the page was done and so no one would see it. (I understand that still doesn't make it acceptable but I would like to know)--18:26, March 24, 2014 (UTC)
hhhmmm... I'm not going to drag it on... Don't worry Yuri. I promise I won't do it again. Just a bit of harmless fun on my end. Besides, it's not like anyone reading the article purely for information will have seen it (unless they had been reading the code for whatever peculiar reason...)--18:51, March 24, 2014 (UTC)
Have to go at the moment, apologies. I'll probably be on later this afternoon.19:10, March 24, 2014 (UTC)
Chat has crashed Edit
At least for me. It's actually beneficial as I need to do some work, have a nice night Yuri!--19:47, March 24, 2014 (UTC)
No i wont hold it against you as the picture hyper showed me was out of context. As for steam i have sent requests before to no avail. On top of that i doubt it would work for mobile. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 20:50, March 24, 2014 (UTC)
Knife page Edit
Isn't saying what each knife is IRL comparable to the IRL first paragraph on every weapon, vehicle, and gadget page? It's just in a different place on the page due to how the Knife page is set up. -- A2AContact 03:38, March 25, 2014 (UTC)
- I don't think it's quite the same as putting IRL in the main body of articles, which of course would be unacceptable and a mess. That's because each model of weapon/vehicle/gadget has a separate page, while knives don't.
- But I see what you're saying, and yeah some knives don't have a specific IRL model. People just may be interested in the IRL counterpart when applicable, just like we have on other pages. But it's fine with me either way. -- A2AContact 03:48, March 25, 2014 (UTC)
Blog Favor Edit
Re: Tabbers Edit
Alright, I'll stop using them in the future. Apologies for any issues they may have caused. There have been issues with me using them before, do we have a policy on tabbers that I seem to be missing? --23:10, March 25, 2014 (UTC)
Not to question your judgement but Edit
why? what was wrong with it?--19:11, March 27, 2014 (UTC)
sorry, never gave an example.
now why?-- 19:13, March 27, 2014 (UTC)
BF:Leak details we not host leaked content. Now if you consider an external link a form of hosting then it shall be removed. The purpose of the blog is to report it has been leaked and that any content added as a result will be removed on sight with perpetrators reprimanded. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 19:41, March 27, 2014 (UTC)
- I have fixed the blog and I suggest we clarify better in BF:LEAK to avoid future problems. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 19:45, March 27, 2014 (UTC)
I dont need to speak to him over it. If he doesnt want to listen to me or go find for himself thats his problem. I made a blog over the topic the day it happened so I know my shit. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 03:46, March 28, 2014 (UTC)
- Believe me I would but Apple is terrible and causes my phone to freeze everytime I try to go to a page's history, a users contribution page, or an Anon page. Fucking iOS7.1! -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 04:16, March 28, 2014 (UTC)
What are you talking about? I was just following the format on other pages Yuri. eg: http://battlefield.wikia.com/wiki/SCAR-H#References-- 18:22, March 28, 2014 (UTC)
I'll get to work--18:22, March 28, 2014 (UTC)
This a reference or...? -- 18:28, March 28, 2014 (UTC)
not true good sir. Some headers just go <ref> and have nothing more thus creating no errors.--18:36, March 28, 2014 (UTC)
strange. anyway, I'm hunting them down right now. They won't survive by Friday next week (I have other thing to do once I finish the AR sweep)--18:41, March 28, 2014 (UTC)
Working on it right now, should be done later today. -20:42, March 29, 2014 (UTC)
Theme Issue Edit
Yuri we have a problem. CODW decided to make their theme noticeably similar to ours. Since today is April 1st they also added some dumb things to it but it looks like theyre keeping the theme. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 23:32, April 1, 2014 (UTC)
- Wiki Skin Revamp. They it was pure coincidence but i dont buy it. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 23:41, April 1, 2014 (UTC)
- Was not a joke. Unproductive to go around and adding two cents on how no one likes a gamemode -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 11:54, April 8, 2014 (UTC)
- Actually it's a talk page (not a main article) and it has been done a few times in the past. Also there is no rule that says you can't add your opinion on a talk page.
I declare your right of giving him a warning null.--12:35, April 8, 2014 (UTC)
Your Comment Edit
Re: Since I never saw you on steamEdit
Thanks Yuri! Really appreiciate that.
Character pages Edit
What's this superseded thing? I would check myself but my computer says "oh you wanted THAT page ok well wait nonono we cant do that too much stuff"
Is personal attacks/name-calling really how we should treat other users, as admins? Hyper may cause some problems, but he's not a troll/vandal/flamer. Any problems caused by users on the wiki are dealt with easily enough, it's not as if it takes a lot of work and stress to warn/block people. This just seems like a good way to drive away any user that ever does a single thing to anger you. If AEAE, why should we be so condescending? -- A2AContact 16:49, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
I freaking know that he is at times pretentious, annoying, and sometimes causes trouble. I deal with it too. I sure as hell don't support that behavior. But do you expect all users to be perfect? Do you forget that people with imperfect behavior have contributed a lot of editing, and to this community? Why are you so above everyone else?
- There's just gotta be a better approach than name-calling, something I'm pretty sure is against our own rules, and that users other than yourself would be warned/blocked for. -- A2AContact 17:19, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
- Yes, someone causes trouble, you warn/block. Good. I know you're by-the-book about it, and I respect that. My only real issue is why you aren't 'civil' about it. Sure, we should warn and block those who cause trouble, but I see no good reason why admins should resort to insults instead of just dealing justice. -- A2AContact 17:43, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
Be civil to a rude and threatened an editor is pure nonsense. A2A you clearly have no idea who you were messing with. Because you cuddled him ect. Congrats your not suppressing his actions your encouraging him because your doing nothing.-- 17:54, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
I know I've been too lenient, and I'm sorry. But AFIAK, I haven't actively encouraged him to cause trouble. I know exactly who I'm "messing with", I didn't first come to this wiki yesterday. Saying that someone is pretentious and rude is expressing a fact. Calling someone "dick" or "shit" is unneccessarily resorting to insults. (You could say it's stating a fact, but you know it's unneeded.) Even though he "threatened" you, hell you can just block him. Where in the rules does it say that admins should be uncivil? -- A2AContact 18:05, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
- Whatever your "norm" is, we have a civility policy that everyone is supposed to abide by. I'm not "personally offended", I'm just talking about our rules. That's all I'm saying. -- A2AContact 18:12, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
Wow this is the fucking internet. There's no limit how much I can say fuck or shit. Also I'm pretty sure there's a no flame towards someone rule. That's just nonexistent. If it was enforced we would have all the admin banned.--18:17, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
- I never said "don't cuss on the internet". I could care less about that. I was just referring to warning users in an administrative capacity, that's all. I apologize if I came off the wrong way. -- A2AContact 18:28, April 16, 2014 (UTC)
Page Worthy? Edit
Hi, Just wanted to give you a heads up that I'm replacing a few videos on this community that will be expiring with other versions from our premium library. Thanks. Peter 18:04, April 24, 2014 (UTC)
CSS Woes Edit
- I check over at the Space Dandy Wiki and the CSS is fine. Following that I rechecked ours and found that was also working again. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 03:41, April 25, 2014 (UTC)
- Did you reach CSS though the Admin dashboard? -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 03:57, April 25, 2014 (UTC)
I'm not the best person to answer this for you. I will pass your inquiry along however and somebody else more informed on this should be able to provide an answer for you. Cheers. Peter 16:05, April 25, 2014 (UTC)
- Same for me, comes up as the page's source code. 16:36, April 25, 2014 (UTC)
- We started to investigate this (I was able to see it on a few other communities) but the issue seems to have cleared up. I can see MediaWiki:Wikia.css just fine everywhere now, including here. If you see this again, or to report any other bugs in the future, please use Special:Contact to notify Wikia staff. Thanks! BertH (help forum | blog) 00:05, April 26, 2014 (UTC)
BF4 Category Edit
Gamemode Categories Edit
Many gamemode cateogories, such as "Gamemodes of Battlefield 3" are either incomplete or not created (but still listed as categories). Should we either complete them or remove them? awyman13 (Talk/Work) 02:29, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
BF Concepts Edit
- Vehicle Disable aswell or is it already in a place I am forgetting about? -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 03:44, April 30, 2014 (UTC)
- May I suggest separating the page and putting it under Vehicle Health? A soldier and tank are different after all as is how they take damage. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 04:18, April 30, 2014 (UTC)
- Yuri the Canadits for Deletion category has 77 members because of that idiot, you didnt fix them. I would do it but im largely useless due to my phone freezing whenever I try to look at history pages. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 11:53, May 1, 2014 (UTC)
- That was before I went to investigate how he messed up all those pages. Turns out you forgot to undo his revision on the level infobox template. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 19:34, May 1, 2014 (UTC)
Monthly Poll Edit
- Now that you said you that, why not merge the 1x scope pages? Theyre all essential the same and would remain stubs anyway. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 22:12, May 7, 2014 (UTC)
- No point in having a page for identical abilities that only differ in name. Should we make a page for every single weapon variant? How about all the M16 variants? Nope. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 23:32, May 7, 2014 (UTC)
Auto Injector Edit
Potential E3 QuestionsEdit
Hey there Hanyuu!
My name’s Mike and I’m with Wikia’s gaming ComDev team. Just wanted to say hi and ask you a quick question about E3. As you might know, E3 is one of the biggest game conventions of the year, and it’s right around the corner. We may have the opportunity ahead of the show to interview some folks from EA, and would love to ask them any questions about any potential upcoming Battlefield games that you or the other admins may have.
Here’s an example of a community interview we’ve done before: http://xcom.wikia.com/wiki/File:Expert_Showcase_Special_Edition_-_XCOM_Enemy_Within
We really like letting Wikia communities ask the questions, because they’re very knowledgeable about their game of choice, and ask extremely in-depth questions that regular news outlets don’t.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in doing, feel free to submit any questions you have here, or directly to me at email@example.com Hope to hear back from you soon, and thanks again for all your edits & contributions to Battlefield Wiki!
Ask EA Edit
- I know you don't want (Disambiguation), but if you're going to put things like (Kit) or (Battlefield 4) to clarify a page's subject, why couldn't we have (Disambig) in a few cases, like Medic and Bomb, to separate the dis from the main subject, because there was a single specific article with each of those names? -- A2AContact 20:52, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
- I agree with your reasoning in renaming the disambigs, it's a good idea. I think in a few cases with no direct name overlap (Medic, Bomb, possibly Motion Sensor), the main pages would have no ( ), and would additionally link to a disambig. Would that be alright? -- A2AContact 21:05, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
- Wow thanks for that bit of confidence in my administration. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 01:54, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
- How about you find me an example and we'll go from there. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 02:03, May 15, 2014 (UTC)
- Example 1 - The guy had made a blog completely unrelated to BF, in fact I believe it was for modeling or something. In any case it was made for the sole purpose to talk about that.
- Example 2 - The guy kept uploading videos to the Wiki meant for promotion and was adding them to pages. I warned him and he kept on doing it until PLR blocked him.
Addon Category Candidates Edit
Main Page Slider Edit
New Favicon Edit
Can you create a new Favicon for the Wiki? You know give it a black background or maybe the raining background of BF4 as well as the BF4 stylized BF letters? awyman13 (Talk/Work) 21:21, May 21, 2014 (UTC)
Vehicle Page Edit
- Probably not fictional but theres no way we can know for certain. Could just create a page for what the general truck is, not the specific. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 18:28, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
Battlefield 5: SWAT Edit
Turns out that is may indeed be true that Visceral is developing Battlefield 5 and will announce it at E3 2014. News Blog worthy? -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 21:39, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
- Its not leaking anything and as you know the title has long been rumored. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 21:46, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
New Wiki Edit
Just want to let you know of User:Timothy.walter.5095. He was blocked at CODW for breaking DDD on his and others userpages. After he was blocked he started spamming his talk page. I undid it but he reverted me and was being a smartass saying I broke DDD. Basically giving you a heads up. BTW, he took it upon himself to edit the BC2 V weapons template. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 03:43, May 24, 2014 (UTC)
BF2 Map Formatting Edit
Shouldnt they be formatted similar to the Conquest Large variant on newer maps? All the bases are generally the same on 32 variant compared to 64 and there is no sense to describe the same base more then once. If the base is exclusive to the 64 variant then we can put a small note in in brackets like [Conquest Large]. If bases do have any differences based on variants then we can just note that in the section. awyman13 (Talk/Work) 05:02, May 26, 2014 (UTC)
RE: license imageEdit
Image from a blog in IGN. Done --KuronoX
Zip Line Edit
Why has Zip line been merged with Crossbow? The Zip Line is a transportation gadget, and is the name of the gadget; the crossbow is just the means by which is it deployed.
How about this: the "Repair Tool" in BF3/BF4 "is" a blowtorch, but since it is called "Repair Tool" and functions as such, it's on the Repair Tool page. I don't think this was a good merge. -- A2AContact 23:04, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
- I thought it was called "Zip Line" in the Kit/Spawn menu, and the game manual? Also, isn't it impossible to kill with, meaning its kill-message is part of gamefiles, and is never seen? We don't name pages after internal files. -- A2AContact 23:17, May 28, 2014 (UTC)
- For future reference, may i mention a certain game in development features zip lines. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 00:09, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
|For the excelling work you have done to keep this Wiki a reliable and expansive source of information, I award you, by popular nomination and voting, the award of User of the Month of June 2014. Congratulations! - Pedro9basket (talk) [ ] 23:19, June 2, 2014 (UTC)|
I looked around in the wiki, and stuff that appear in more than one game are all randomly listed on pages and is randomly cluttered up. I suggest using the tabber function.
The Dodge Charger is a common police car around where I live. Plus, the Mustang is a two-door coupe while the Charger's a sedan. It's the seventh-gen (2011-2014) model seen in the screencap, easily recognizable by the lines on the doors and fenders- see this pic versus the screenshot. The BFHL one just has a different front grill installed.
Syringe Disambig Edit
- Just graduated from high school a couple weeks ago so I can actually play video games now, although I'm god awful at Battlefield now. I'm really digging GTA V though. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 04:09, June 10, 2014 (UTC)
What would you say about the categorization of Technical, Rhino, and Snowmobile? All of them would be civilian vehicles originally, but they are outfitted with military weapons (and armor plating in the Rhino's case), unlike other civilian cars. Your call, since you're the guy to go to about categories. -- A2AContact 03:55, June 10, 2014 (UTC)
Crossbox/Zip Line Edit
It turns out the Zip Line works exactly as it did in BF2 with the Crossbow. Can you set it up accordingly? You can find gameplay of it among other things here. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 07:19, June 10, 2014 (UTC)
- I mean how the zipline is fired via crossbow like in BF2. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 15:13, June 10, 2014 (UTC)
We must Speak Edit
- I played Rainbow Six. Join chat so i can fill you in. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 03:39, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
Hardline Nominated for Best in Show at E3Edit
Hey there YuriKaslov
It's Doug from Wikia's Community Development Team. I'm stopping by to let you know that Battlefield Hardline has been selected as one of the best games shown at E3 2014! We're hosting a big poll over at our E3 Portal and are calling for the community to vote for their favorite E3 game! The game with the most votes wins the title of Best in Show 2014.
I have added a nomination banner on the top right-rail of the mainpage that links to the poll. Feel free to remove the banner if you would not like it there. I will also be posting a blog announcing the nomination to get community attention soon.
Infobox Merge Edit
Re: Gallery Widths Edit
Sorry, mate. Did not realize those were intentional. I'll re-add any I may have removed. Most of the Hardline-related page galleries were 120 in width.23:23, June 27, 2014 (UTC)
Vehicle pages Edit
What do you think about the existence of this page? Unlike other minor vehicles in BF3, it is not once driven or operated by either the player or AI, and is simply a stationary object. -- A2AContact 17:49, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah I wish we could customize it more but it seems way more popular than talk pages or forum posts. Wikia has it in the BF Wiki app so everyone uses it alot more. -- awyman13 (Talk/Work) 19:39, September 9, 2016 (UTC)
