Signing Talk Pages

I'm going to have to bring this up again, you must sign your posts on talk pages using ~~~~. As far as I'm aware, it says about doing that on every single talk page when you're editing it, so you can't really say you don't know that you have to do it or that you don't know how to do it. WelcomeBOT's message above this covers using the signature too. --Omolong (talk) 08:38, 24 December 2014 (PST)

Apologies, but getting into new habits is very difficult. I will try to keep that in mind, but nobody is perfect. ScottishDrunkard (talk) 08:40, 24 December 2014 (PST)
I can understand that, but it's not really something you can just not do, you have to sign your posts. There is even a button in the editing toolbar that automatically inputs the tildes when you click it. Having to sign your posts after you can get quite annoying to do. --Omolong (talk) 08:59, 24 December 2014 (PST)
Did you say a button that would do it for me? That would allow me to be lazy :) ScottishDrunkard (talk) 09:02, 24 December 2014 (PST)
Once again, I must bring this up. There is no real excuse to not putting your signature on talk pages. You have been spoken to about it multiple times, and there is a message on talk pages that says about doing it. The fact that you are on an iPad is no excuse. If it too awkward to put the tildes in manually, then just use the button in the editing toolbar for it. --Omolong (talk) 11:34, 28 December 2014 (PST)
Where is it? Preferences? ScottishDrunkard (talk) 11:36, 28 December 2014 (PST)
If you have disabled the editing toolbar, then you'll have to enable it in preferences. If not, then it is this Signature Icon.png button, as WelcomeBOT said above. There is a similar icon in the top bar of the enhanced editing toolbar as well. --Omolong (talk) 11:40, 28 December 2014 (PST)
Test--ScottishDrunkard (talk) 11:42, 28 December 2014 (PST)
It work. I'll keep a reminder eveythime i contribute to a discussuion.--ScottishDrunkard (talk) 11:43, 28 December 2014 (PST)


Hello. Please do not revive old discussions that haven't been touched in years. You revived an old discussions which ended almost 3 years ago. Try not to do it again in future, and make sure to pay attention to the dates of messages. Thanks.  –  Kii (talk) 04:19, 2 January 2015 (PST)

Ah. Thanks, Ill remember to not Necropost in future. ScottishDrunkard (talk) 04:31, 2 January 2015 (PST)


•F*cking Omolong...
— You

Interesting your anger... Any reason in particular? — Tark lm(pt-br) 14:15, 24 January 2015 (PST)

I just... There are reasons.. Just trust me on that... (Sorry of the lateness for my reply...) ScottishDrunkard (talk) 14:33, 2 February 2015 (PST)

Recent Edits + Recent behavior

Heyo, After noticing what was going on, I'm just going to point out several things.

1. Its been a wiki policy/standard that "The" in an item name doesn't exist in the name on wiki for obvious reasons. If every article started with "The"... it would be difficult to navigate the search bar option with the drop down if all you see is everything starting with "The". That and its pretty redundant to have honestly.

2. Your recent behavior (and not so recent). The attitude and language given to other members isn't REALLY appropriate. Especially when they are pointing out a mistake or trying to help you.

3. Rather than shun out anyone who tries to help you, perhaps try and use your mistakes and learn off them. That's the sole reason why Omolong was undoing/pointing out your mistakes. Its to help you understand what is right and what is wrong when editing the wiki.

Whether you read this or not is really up to you, I'm just pointing this out because the behavior you displayed isn't appropriate. That and i'm not sure whether or not a moderator will do anything regarding said behavior.

In case it is not already obvious to you, I am going to clarify it: we do not take kindly to insulting other users, which was the main reason for your ban (and might I add, I did consider making it permanent, but decided to be lenient). And considering the circumstances of that ban, I'm going to give you only one more chance here on the Wiki. You will conduct your behavior appropriately, both through your edits here and your behavior in the IRC channel (should you choose to go there again), or I will ensure that you do not bother us again.
As an addendum, the reversion of your edits was mainly due to not following trivia and/or style guidelines, so in order to avoid such situations again you would probably due well to read the guidelines and make sure that you understand them. --User LordKelvin Signature.png LordKelvin 15:05, 18 April 2015 (PDT)
I'm not going to be doing many or any edits. The easiest way I know to not get banned again is to not do anything. When a new update comes out, it will make skeleton pages for any new weapons, cosmetics or maps, like I have always done. ScottishDrunkard (talk) 05:06, 19 April 2015 (PDT)
Just to let you know, but we don't really need users to create skeleton pages for the majority of weapons or cosmetics. If there's an update with a decent number of new weapons/cosmetics (other than tournament medals), it's easier and faster to let Moussekateer's bot create the pages. If there's not that many items added, then the pages can be created by users, but it's better to put all the information that can be confirmed on the page (so infobox parameters, painted variants, relevant categories, a gallery for class images etc), rather than a line stating the item's name and when it was added. It's less work for other users too, as they don't have to go over the page and correct it.
In regards to maps/gamemodes, the pages do need to be created, but for maps it's easier to add most of the information that can be confirmed, as there's not as much info that needs confirming compared to items. Gamemodes on the other hand are harder to confirm information for (so those pages are normally a bit barebones until people actually play the gamemode), but the pages should at least include the relevant update history, navs and categories, along with anything else that can be easily confirmed (such as maps in an appropriate table), and the recent addition/stub templates at the top. Hope that clears some things up for skeleton pages. --Omolong (talk) 07:57, 19 April 2015 (PDT)
In that case, I won't do anything at all. Like I said before I was banned... I. Am. Out of here. ScottishDrunkard (talk) 12:01, 21 April 2015 (PDT)

Trivia Hazmat Headcase

Heyo, Just gonna point this out here. I merely re-worded the trivia so its not so clustered with tiny details. Trivia is meant to be on the point as a "Did you know" sort of thing. No one really wants minor details. And also, if there was a source such as a reddit post, well all of the details is already there for reader's pleasure to read at a different time.

Keep trivia to the point and avoid too much detail. Last thing we need is a word wall for a trivia point that really just needs 2-3 lines. Ashes (talk) 15:15, 4 February 2016 (PST)
