Signatures on talk pages only

Please only sign your posts on talk pages, not on main namespace pages. All the changes can be seen on history pages, which gives time, date and editor. SpaceNut 21:02, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Recent Edits

Thanks for all of your backstory information on various groups and characters from City's colorful history! However, please take care when you move or delete references, especially redirects. Create disambiguation pages instead of removing redirects. For example, the Torrent page you fiddled with (which I reverted the changes to):

  • Torrent turns into a disambiguation page
    • Link to Torrent
    • Link to the villain that Luminary defeated (page name to link to would be "Torrent (Villain)")

Thanks! ~ AGGE talk/cons 03:55, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanx for tha advice mate. I'm kinda new to it all atm so am learning as I go.

The reason I tried to change that redirect was because Torrent is simply a power in a list of powers and isn't actually its full title. Where as Torrent the Villain is his full name.

Hope that makes sense as to why I attempted to change the redirect. Will leave redirects alone in future though :)

--The Fish 11:10, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Everyone starts learning somewhere! :) No need to worry overmuch, that's what we're here for. If you have any questions, feel free to drop any of us a line. We're happy to help and answer questions.
"Torrent" is what we call the power - if people search for "torrent" instead of "dark blast", it should redirect to where it should be. If more than one thing or person is called "torrent", the page should be a disambiguation ({{disambig}}) to include links to all relevant things or people.
And as a last request, please don't blank pages. Instead, flag them with {{delete}} and give a reason why it should be deleted.
Thanks for all of your efforts! This is fantastic :) ~ AGGE talk/cons 19:00, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

ah ok. Thank you for the help and advice. :) --The Fish 21:59, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

RE: + Cat

I enter "+cat" in the summary for an edit as a shorthand way of saying "added category tag". In the case of the images you uploaded, that means that I added "[[Category: The Fish Images]]" in the image description. Adding a category tag allows us to group similar articles or images together. When an article or image has been added to a category, you can scroll all the way to the bottom to see the links to the categories it belongs to. Following the category links will show you everything that has been filed under those categories. --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 19:51, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Can I also ask what the -x and +x are for too pls? I was guessing it's you lot adding and minusing my posts but some posts which the wiki never had before are getting Minuses and things that I've only added paragraphs to are getting +'s in the 100's? :s

e.g "(diff) (hist) . . m Amerika Korps‎; 19:05 . . (-2) . . Aggelakis (Talk | contribs)" --The Fish 23:21, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Those numbers indicate the size of the change that was made to the article. For example, if there were 1250 characters in the article before editing and there are 1260 characters in the article after editing, the change log will indicate (+10). The wiki software automatically generates those numbers when it records any edit. --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 23:41, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Canon sources for heroes

Hey man, I'm working on a list of all canon heroes and villains, not as in-depth as the Historical Heroes and Villains page, but more of a quick reference page. Can you tell me what source the heroes Caduceus, Dreadnought, Herald, Impetus, and the area PAX derive from? For example, are they in-game, from the comics, the novels...? --K26dp 16:51, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi mate, sorry didn't get back sooner but I've been away for a bit. The info on the things you listed I took from an old site. Caduceus, Dreadnought, Herald and Impetus were all old AT walkthroughs when the game was 1st released. They have since been deleted from the official site but were there originally to tell new players about the different AT's. PAX was something that I came across on the same site but I can find no further info on it. If you would like the link to the site I used, then I can link you up. :)

--The Fish 23:53, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, if you have the link, that would be great. I'm always interested in the nooks and crannies of the game. --K26dp 14:38, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

There ya go mate. --The Fish 15:12, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

RE: Going Rogue

No plans to make a separate wiki for the GR info. Agge's already started with some basic organization. There's a thread on the forums related to that. There's also some info already recorded for some of the characters: Desdemona, Maelstrom, Tyrant. If you want to start entering info, go ahead and we'll try to help keep it organized as best we can. --Eabrace Healthbar notify phone.png 02:01, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
