AdoptionEdit

Hi. I've given you admin and bureaucrat rights here, per your successful adoption request. Be sure to let us know if you need anything, and good luck with the wiki! - Brandon Rhea@Wikia(talk) 19:00, March 23, 2012 (UTC)


I want to know. How do I request to become an administrator? FirestarIDN10:18, June 5, 2012 (UTC)


Is there such a role as Public Relations(PR) Manager? Not that I am very desperate,but I would like to apply for such a role if there is.

Is there anything other than Wiki contributions that I can provide for reference?Ritdracmon14:21, June 5, 2012 (UTC)


So...how many admins/bureaucrats are you planning on having right now?Ritdracmon 15:19, June 6, 2012 (UTC)


Manual can be found here Ritdracmon 07:02, June 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hei,

I'm trying to track down Wipeout artwork. I want hi-res image I can blow up as art for my home.

I expected to find a 'Art of' coffee table book on Amazon but none was ever released (can't believe that a game series with such a groundbreaking design never had one).

Any ideas where I might be able to get my hands on original concept art or super hi-res images? So far I've tried Google, eBay, Amazon, and both the Design Republic and the studio has shut down :(... Next I'll start trying to track down individual artists...

Thanks. Nice site - AWESOME GAME SERIES :)


Here are two sites that I use (quite a bit) to get game art from the series:

Japanese fan site

WipEout: Ballistic Antigravity Racing (Tumblr)

Other than that, links to images can be found searching through the WipeoutZone forums (wipeoutzone.com). Hope you find some to your liking :)

Blocked(?)Edit

I looked at my proile and I see/saw a "BLOCKED" beside it. I do not remember engaging in any illegitimate or illegal activity.Ritdracmon (talk) 07:04, January 21, 2013 (UTC)


Where abouts? I've had a quick look on your profile, but there's nothing stating it. (To make things clear, I haven't blocked you or anything like that.)

Gilke001 (talk) 07:59, January 21, 2013 (UTC)


I guess that it is an 'I saw'  then.

I remembered a block given by a VSTF to an IP address that was close to mine,but I did not copy the notice. What is the likelihood of erroneous blocks? This is certainly not the first time.Ritdracmon (talk) 08:02, January 21, 2013 (UTC)


This is the first I've heard of it. Gilke001 (talk) 08:04, January 21, 2013 (UTC)


It says here that I'm 'Blocked" Ritdracmon (talk) 08:24, January 21, 2013 (UTC)


Ok. What I've done is actually blocked you (not really, you just can't send email) for only 1 minute, maybe it'll lift completely after the timeframe. Reply back if you still get this after the timeframe. Gilke001 (talk) 08:34, January 21, 2013 (UTC)


It seems to pop up occasionally  Ritdracmon (talk) 08:41, January 21, 2013 (UTC)


If its popping up, but not affecting your account or your posting privilages etc., I would just leave it. However, if its keeps bugging you, ask one of the Wikia Community Support Team for help.

Hope you can get this problem sorted out without too much hassle.

Gilke001 (talk) 08:58, January 21, 2013 (UTC)


Thank you for all the assistance you have given.  Ritdracmon (talk) 09:02, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

Some Wipeout content Edit

Hi Gilke001,

I'm sending you some interesting links that could improve your Wiki ;-)

- On this page of this Japanese fansite http://www22.atpages.jp/wipeout/wipeout/report/woF001.html there are technical drawing of the ships of each team as well illustrations for weapons. (It would be nice if you could upload these pics in the gallery)

- The old website of WipEout : Fusion no longer works very well but there was very interesting content.

http://web.archive.org/web/20040730110717/http://www.wipeoutfusion.com/


- Here the website of a former designer of Wip3out.

Select Wipeout 3 category Go to the concept art tab (ships artworks) On the left tab in the screenshot category there are artworks of the tracks.

Hey Glike, I'm new to this wiki and someone undid my edits to the Ag-Systems page. You see because Ag-Systems is a single company, the verbs that are used should be the same words that you would use for a singular noun. Though there are many employees working at Ag-Systems, the verbs still should be singular. If you could teach me how to revert my previous edit, I would be grateful. Thanks. AG-SYSTEMS (talk) 11:42, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

So...we are not editing for gramatical correctness? Isn't better to make things better to read grammatically? I'm just wondering because you are admin and I am new here. I personally vote that we should aim for grammatical correctness. AG-SYSTEMS (talk) 02:32, May 18, 2013 (UTC)

I was wondering if I could get your advice on an issue. I made edits to the pages FEISAR F5000 and AG Systems F5000, but they were quickly reverted by an anon user IP. So I resubmitted the edit again a number of times over the last week, and everytime it was reverted by an anon user IP - except the last time, which was by user FirestarIDN, followed by a threat of an admin ban through the user talk page, which I take very seriously.

I think the edits are a good improvement, and I've even laid out a talk entry on the AG Systems F5000 page to suggest that they shouldn't be reverted without proper review. But I'm being told by Firestar to leave it alone and that the edit makes the page too long. So I have just a few questions that I need to understand the answers to. Is there something I should know about these pages, like if are they protected? Is there any limit to the length of these pages? Should I keep defending my edits?

I look forward to hearing your advice, Jackal-d (talk) 14:17, June 10, 2013 (UTC)

I acknowledge that this is a wiki. It's just that I felt that my edits to the article are being unappreciated. And please, tell me that I'm not being targeted by troll-ish, non-member contributors that have their IP addresses appear in Recent Activity when they edit/undo/etc. an article. Or maybe they felt that my wording is too...(erm, what's the right word for this?) And that they liked the article the way it is and wanted me to leave it alone. But whatever the reason, this is a wiki. Plus, I happen to own WipEout Fusion and WipEout 64 (pretty cool games, let me tell you that) -JustAlex93


Just to let you know, I've created some nice clean .svg (scalable vector graphic) images in the style of the Fury .png files you uploaded for use on each of the speed class pages. Just wondering what your thoughts are on this (if .svg graphics are accepted on this wiki). Jackal-d (talk) 17:56, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

I've uploaded the image in the Vector page, per your request. I'll wait before adding the rest. Jackal-d (talk) 02:21, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback! :D Each page should be updated not too long after this message. Jackal-d (talk) 03:36, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
