Categories

You have added the nonexistent category "Undead" to some articles. Please do not add new categories to articles. Big changes like adding a category and categorizing a bunch of articles must be discussed at an IRC meeting first. You can add you category to the agenda here. Please reply on my talk page. Thanks, Jxtreme My talk 13:35, July 14, 2011 (UTC)

PS Move Heroes content categorization

It is currently being discussed if PS Move Heroes content should be categorized with other R&C content. Please do not categorize PS Move Heroes content until a decision is made. You can see the discussion here. Jxtreme My talk 15:18, July 16, 2011 (UTC)

Re: 3 Things

  • No, there should not be a PS Move Heroes Monsterpedia. We do not cover non-R&C content from PS Move Heroes, so there would be no links to pages with images, and there would be no images of non-R&C enemies. So all you'd have is a list of enemy names...it wouldn't be very useful at all.
  • That image looks good. However, you must source and license it. Edit the page File:B2brawler.png, switch to source mode, and add this:
{{Information
|description=Describe the image here.
|source=Put the URL of where you got the image from ratchet galaxy here.
|licensing={{Fair use}}
|other versions=
}}
When uploading images, provide a source and license at a minimum. A description helps. You do not have to fill out all of the fields. Most images you upload will have {{Fair use}} as the license. Game screenshots get the {{Game screenshot}} license. Thanks for asking to change the image.
  • No, the Pirate Ratchet skin should not be added to the space pirate category. Even though it's space pirate related, Ratchet does not turn into a pirate when he puts on that costume.

You seem to be good at adding categories. Can you help categorize characters into games? Categorize the characters listed in the A Crack in Time article here in the category Category:A Crack in Time characters, and the characters listed in the Tools of Destruction article here in the category Category:Tools of Destruction characters. Thanks, Jxtreme My talk 04:58, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

Re: B2 Brawler image

Edit the B2 Brawler page in source mode. At the beginning of the text, you'll see something that begins with this:

{{GOEnemybox

A line or two after that, there will be a line that says something like:

|image=[[File:B2Brawler.jpg|250px]]

Change B2Brawler.jpg to B2brawler.png

That should change the image. Jxtreme My talk 04:04, July 20, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Images

In response to your question on Jxtreme's talk page, this is a matter to be left on our IRC meeting agenda. Personally, I think that the current image should remain until more portrait-like pictures are released on A4O launch. --TigernoseChatEdits 00:13, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Other Appearances

Yes, the Nefarious, Blarg Trooper and etc should have PlayStation Move Heroes as a cameo listed in their respective appearances sections. I think Ratchet and Clank already are known to appear Jak X and Golf and is said on our wiki.

I'd also like to remind you to check out our layout guide. Our manual of style is written there, and you can learn how to edit and write pages in the standard wiki format. This includes italicising game names; so Size Matters turns into Size Matters all the time. Remember to do this every time you add a game title in.

Thanks, and have fun editing!

--TigernoseChatEdits 16:39, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Gleeber and Lunk

This again, is better discussed on our IRC meetings agenda. My personal opinion is that Gleeber and Lunk shouldn't have their own articles because they do not actually appear in the Ratchet & Clank universe canonically, while Jak and Sly are often mentioned. Although others may have different opinions so I think we should discuss it on the agenda.

Regarding the enemy at the start, it isn't the B2 Brawler because that was a defeated boss in a different galaxy, and the Enforcers appeared in Metropolis already. It's simply an unmanned Enforcer with no canonical elements.

Also we already have categories for most games' characters, such as Category:Tools of Destruction characters however some games do not have these categories, so we will make them.

Hope that helps! --TigernoseChatEdits 15:57, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Re: All 4 One and Drophyd General

That is a very good theory, what if the Creature Collector started collecting all of our old villains? Sounds cool, and I'd love to see it happen.

The Digital Qwark page was deleted because there is no such thing as a digital qwark. We already have an article for the Qwark enemies so a Digital Qwark page is not needed.

Also, please do not leave messages on Hunterj or Jxtreme's talk page for the time being because they are both away from editing. It'd be better off to leave them on my talk as I'm curretly the only active administrator. In response to your question about War Bots, I think this is something you should put on the IRC meeting agenda. --TigernoseChatEdits 17:37, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Clone Home

Hey DrNefarious. Please sign your edits with four tidles so I know who is talking :)

Yeah, I agree that this must have gave the idea for Size Matters. It was in fact in development before Size Matters and was cancelled when SM development began.

Are you able to give me a link to the article you read about Clone Home? Without a source we can't make any articles about the imitators. Thanks, --TigernoseChatEdits 16:34, August 16, 2011 (UTC)

Problem

Hi there. I thank you for your numerous edits and I really appreciate all the hard work you have done while I was off on vacation. However, I would like you to notify a few problems I have noticed when you have been editing.

Most of your edits still don't tend to follow our layout guide. Here are a few problems I have noticed that persist in your contributions:

Bold title name

You do not bold the the title of the page in the body text. When creating a page about Qwark (for example), remember always to bold the first iteration of the word Qwark in the article.

  • example: (Page title: Captain Qwark) Captain Qwark was a superhero.

Notices in brackets

When adding a notice to an item in a list in brackets (parenthesis), always remember to leave a space, make sure it's not capitalised and then make the notice small.

Here's a correct example:

Here's an incorrect example:

Commas

I have noticed sometimes you use commas in sentences when a period should be used instead.

Example of correct use of period instead of comma:

Incorrect use of both bolding text and commas:

Ending sentences with periods

Remember to always end sentences with a period! I'm often sifting through the recent changes merely to add a period to an edit. If you remember to finish sentences with periods, then it will mean less work for me having to fix it.

Similarity between two things

I also notice that you sometimes include a game in the appearances section of an object, that doesn't actually appear in the game. However, something similar does appear in the game. You did this with VR headset, noting its similarity to the Pilot's Helmet.

They are not the same thing. They are completely different regardless of looks. So, do not add the first R&C game into the appearances of the VR Headset merely because the Pilot's Helmet appears in that game.

Other things

  • Remember to capitalise proper nouns and proper nouns only. A dog is a noun but not a proper noun. Metropolis is a proper noun.
  • Remember to always write in past tense when writing about in-universe content. Try to keep present tense in the gaming tips or behind the scenes of an in-universe article.

Source mode

It would be gladly appreciated if you disable the Rich Text Editor from now on. Wikia recently introduced a new editor to help newer users. Unfortunately it is still very buggy. Also, it is very unflexible to work with. When disabled, all editing will be in wikicode. It may be daunting at first, but remember that I've been using it since I started 3 years ago. In fact, the majority of editors use it.

It is very easy to learn, and most importantly, it allows you to have more control over your work. If you start using the wikicode editor from now on, I will no longer have to clean up behind you because of the buggy RTE (Rich Text Editor). It will allow to work on newer levels, and it will ensure that I won't have to keep on fixing your edits.

Please, Dr Nefarious. Follow the layout guide. I condensed the most important parts in this message. I would appreciate it very much if you would follow these guidelines when editing. Please realise how much of a problem this is that I had to write up a message.

And remember, everything can be found in the layout guide. --TigernoseChatEdits 11:17, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

Issues

Please do not add categories. In general, categories must be approved by the community before being added. A few categories you have added follow the existing category structure: Category:All 4 One characters, Category:Secret Agent Clank characters. However, most are not needed, and even non-canonical. Category:Robot Ninjas, for example, creates a group of enemies which does not exist in the Ratchet & Clank universe. All of the those enemies were never said to be part of a species of "Robot Ninjas." If you want to add a category, ask me first.

Also, do not add articles about made-up things. For example, Blarg Helicopters. The helicopters the Blarg Helicopter Commanders flew were never given a name, and even if they were, it's so trivial that it's not notable. Mega Death Beam Attacks and Giant Robot Ninjas are also extremely trivial. They don't need their own articles.

Keep these in mind when editing. Thanks, Jxtreme My talk 16:25, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

  • Thanks for understanding. You've been adding a lot of info I have no idea about—nothing wrong with that, except that the R&C wiki is often regarded (by some) as unreliable for misinformation, and I want to prevent that. I didn't remove the SaC stuff (I think) because I don't own that game, but I didn't remember the install cutscene. When you add info, also add where you got it from in the future.

Just remember no speculation and no articles about things we don't know much about. Also, get new categories approved. Thanks, Jxtreme My talk 00:51, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Hello DrNefarious!

I just wanted to warn you that you create a page that already existed. You created the "Drek Fighter Ship", but there was already a "Drek's Starfighter". Please see to it that this problem is solved as soon as possible.


By the way, nice to meet you. It's always nice to get in contact with another dedicated Ratchet and Clank fan.

Appearances section

Hi there and thanks for all the edits with the launch of All 4 One. Just a reminder that when making an appearances section, never spell it "==Apperances:==" - spell it as "==Appearances==".

Thanks. --TigernoseChatEdits 16:21, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Re:

Ratchet-Galaxy is not a trusted source for canon, that could be merely speculation. --TigernoseChatEdits 18:08, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

Just leave it till we find a trusted source. --TigernoseChatEdits 16:50, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback on the vandalism issue, DrNefarious. I'll always be glad to help out the R&C community! Ruzzss 02:11, December 25, 2011 (UTC)

Greetings, DrNefarious!

When I first came in, I couldn't help but notice that you changed the category of my "Casino Security Officer" page to "Candidates for speedy deletion". I am grateful that you did so, considering that the "Senior Guard" page already existed. As you know, I am a recent member, and thus, I did not knew about the page's existence.

However, I also saw that you readily wanted to delete one of my HD images as well. As you know, HD images are hard to come by, especially rare images of Secret Agent Clank. Next time you do so, please do check if the images you are throwing away are something relevant or not. I have saved the picture by inserting it in the Senior Guard's page gallery, so do as you please with the Casino Security Officer page.

Best wishes,

Sergeant Ratchet 16:27, January 5, 2012 (UTC)

Secret Agent Clank is a spin off

I have asked the enterprise and they said that it is a spin off. I have uploaded the photo :) Oh and can I ask something? My email is appearing in the photo and I don't want it to appear anymore. What should I do? Thanks.

bye

Hello again. So, can I put that they are spin offs in parentheses? Thanks :)

Malllo

My Talk page

Hello again. I delete some things of my talk page just to be more organized, with less things in it :) But can you say to me where did you see this rule? :P Thanks!

bye

First, I deleted because I haven't seen this rule that you said until now, and as you haven't given me some kind of a proof, I can delete my talk page because it is also, MY talk page. If it was the talk page of another person, I would understand you. If you delete things of your talk page, it is ok. Because it is your talk page.

Second, I have never asked to this admin how to block pages. The only thing I talked to him was about the Secret Agent Clank game being a spin off or not(he was disagreeing of the game being a spin off) in Octuber of 2011.

bye

Malllo

Yay

I gave Ratchet and Clank 3 a 9.2 out of 10. I critisized it for its lack of alternate Gadgebot forms like the ones in Locked and Loaded.

Organization

Hello again. Sorry for editing Ratchet and Clank pages. It is because I think it is not very organized! :P I think it is more easy to put everything in just one, for example the spin offs in the section gaming spin offs. It could also say in each spin off game what it is its order :). And in the comics(like they are not games), It could be in the section Other. Sorry for editing again :P Thanks!

I haven't read anywhere that the games are supposed to be in order. I asked an admin. Where have you seen that the games are supposed to be in order? Also, beforetime, the games were not in order. Going Mobile and Playstation Move Heroes for example were almost at the end of the page.

bye

But, that's not fair. I haven't seen nor read in anywhere that the games need to be in order. Putting all the games in the order let the page with too much content in one section(games). I also think that the order of the games could be in the page Ratchet & Clank series. Thanks.

bye

First, it is not annoy. If you think in this manner, your attitudes of undone my edits are also annoying. Not everything is like the way you want to. I want the page to be more organized in the way I want, but at least I am discussing with you(thing that you should also do). Second, Why should I leave the page the way you want to? I mean, I can't leave the page the way I want too, but I think we have to reach an agreement. As all the admin are out, and a bit irresponsible too, I think we have to solve this page problem.

bye

|Malllo 14:39, January 18, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I think they are not slowly coming back :P Yesteday, there was an admin who was editiing some pages for a while. I leaved a message in his talk page and yet, nothing. They are being a bit irresponsible :/

Also, the pages didn't had this new organization you put. I remember. Going Mobile was almost at the end of the page, along with Playstation Move Heroes. Secret Agent Clank was in its normal position because it was yet not proved that it was a spin off. As I have got the proof, and as all the confirmed spin offs titles were at the end of the page, I thought it would be more organized and convenient creating the section Gaming spin offs. No one implied with this, except you... :P

Malllo 12:15, January 20, 2012 (UTC)

Hi

Do you play or used to play Secret Agent Clank?

Ldogec 02:15, January 18, 2012 (UTC)

I was asking, because on the Meat Mortar, lots of users keep deleting the Tasty Meat Mod, where Ratchet can destroy pigs which release meat, which functions like Nanotech. It is REALLY annoying that annonymous users keep deleting this info, so I blocked a few. Did you acquire the Tasty Meat Mod?

Ldogec 02:27, January 18, 2012 (UTC)

I think that the official Insomniac Games' games should be under the main canon category while the other High Impact Games and PlayStation Move Heroes should be listed under a different category as non-canon but that's just my opinion. Maybe you should ask others' opinions too and let the majority decide. --HiQuTalk to me! 13:12, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

Wow, didn't know that. Maybe a compromise; the non-Insomniac Games could be listed below the official ones but still as canon. --HiQuTalk to me! 14:00, January 21, 2012 (UTC)


Hello. But you have to be aware that the admin said that the games in the section Non-Insomniac games are still considered canon games. Going Mobile is not canon, Secret Agent Clank can be non-canon too(I am waiting the reply of the enterprise), Playstation Move Heroes is also non canon, and the Manga is not a Non-Insomniac game. It is not even a game. I only want to know what is the big difference between this organization, and mine. The only thing that it is different is the section names being different. As my section name is Gaming spin offs, this new organization has the section name Non-insomniac games. I also created the section Other, because the comics are not games, so it shouldn't be put in the section Games.

And the admin said that it was only his opinion. Oh, and aren't you the one that said that the games are supposed to be in order? I do not understand why you agreed with this new organization, as the admin only staded that it is only his opinion.

bye

Malllo 15:07, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

All right. So I want you to do the majority rules thing, as I don't have any choice :/.

I contact them via email. I take a screenshot, and later upload it. You just need to go to their website and click in something to contact them.

Malllo 15:28, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

Re:

I agree with you completely. They should be in chronological order like it was before Malllo came around. Nobody argued about it before and it worked just find. I have been undoing his edits because it is stupid how he is placing everything. It is almost like he thinks he runs the wiki. So, I agree, put it in chronological order, just like it was and has been for years. DaRanger (Talk ~ Contribs) 15:43, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

I notice you are asking everyone, but this whole thing shall be in Forum:Administrative topics where voting and comments can be all organized. I can help you make it if you want. DaRanger (Talk ~ Contribs) 15:55, January 21, 2012 (UTC)
Yep, you're right. Sorry for the confusion. DaRanger (Talk ~ Contribs) 15:10, January 22, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, every game, even the spin-offs should be in chronological order, but put the comics at the end.

Ldogec 21:19, January 21, 2012 (UTC)

hi just wondering if you saw my replay to your question yesterday.

RE: honsetly i totally agree with you having everything in chronological order makes alot more sense. however its ok to mention that ya Secret Agent Clank is a spinoff but just on the descrption on the game itself not every page its making the wiki look bad. every page that mentions secret agent clank it says "spin off" we get it write it once and thats it. instead of editing useless things why dont you edit things that are nesecery like what i did on the omniwrenches. im pretty sure there alot of junk that needs fixing, alot of pages that need images and alot of pages that need correcting . so leave things in there proper order and stop editing useless things. play ratchet and clank on your spare times and togheter we can make this wiki alot better.

Ryno4everThank you

I asked them. Just wait a bit ok?

Your call. --HiQuTalk to me! 15:26, January 23, 2012 (UTC)

Hi again. I made an edit yesterday in the page Ratchet, but I was not logged. What I was trying to say is, if people don't go in the page, they won't know that the games are spin offs. That is why I think it is good to put spin off in parentheses next to the spin off games.

Thanks.

bye

Malllo 12:53, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

Hello. I just wanted to state that they are spin offs, because there are people who don't know too much of Ratchet & Clank. So, some people who will read won't know that they are spin offs. Unless if they go in the page. Also, I see that only one person has said that putting spin off next to the game's title is a bad idea. I want to ask if you could say this to the others, and justify why I want to put spin off next to the games titles. Pherhaps they will understand :)

And about the comics, after reading again the people replies, I think that I have won the votation. Because only one user said that he thinks that putting the comics in the end is good(the others haven't said anything). So, 2 persons agree with me(Malllo,me :D, and Ldogec). And one person agree with you(DrNefarious).

So I am editing again. If something goes bad, you edit again :)

Malllo 00:51, January 25, 2012 (UTC)

Klunk page

Look, the picture you found in the Ratchet Galaxy website could be official, but this does not care. The picture is really bad in all aspects. Klunk's head is out of proportion, his eyes seems orange and not red, and it seems like Klunk's head(wich is a bit shoddy too) is on Clank's body of the Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando american cover. It does not matter if the image is official or not. The picture is bad, and that's what matters.

Past Tence, or Present Tence

Some of the articles here are in present tence. I thought you guys write in past tence? This IS a Sci-Fi wiki, after all. Or are you guys starting to write your own ideas and become a proper wiki? UxieLover1994 12:32, February 8, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. I thought you were an admin. Anyway, Clank's article is in present tence. Maybe we should have a talk about upgrading the MoS to make the articles stand out more, even if it means keeping past tence. I know you guys follow the other Sci-Fi wikis, but it will just get too confusing. I've already pointed out many errors, y'know. UxieLover1994 13:03, February 8, 2012 (UTC)
I got angry with the admins because of their refusal to help create an independent wiki, prefering to stay with Wikia, even if they are the last wiki left. I accused them as being Wikia's "sheep", used my userpage to insult them, the marked it for deletion. I'm suprised I've not been blocked here. UxieLover1994 13:14, February 8, 2012 (UTC)
Really? That's nice of you. After all, there should be an independent R&C wiki, even if nobody here wants to help make it possible. Reasons why they refuse to leave is because they just want the spotlight to themselves, and Wikia bribes Google for being on top, anyway. Another reason could be that once the site is independent, the MoS will be change to insure that present tence is used, articles are restricted to only those who's importance is at least minor (rather than everybody and everything mentioned) and that everyone's articles use the name they are best known as rather than by their real names (only Clank was able to bypass this, otherwise his real name, XJ0461, would have been used instead). UxieLover1994 13:35, February 8, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. But I know in my Heart that most of them (maybe all) will prefer being within a site run by greedy people who ignore all complaints than getting the freedom they should have. No matter how much I try to create an independent site, it never happens, and I cannot run it on my own computer, y'know. UxieLover1994 14:13, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

Re:

Sorry, --TigernoseChatEdits 17:38, March 23, 2012 (UTC)

Re:

One employee "agrees" to your idea because they may think it sounds cool. That does not make it canon. For it to be canon, it has to be stated in the game, obviously. --TigernoseChatEdits 10:08, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

Re: The Q

He says "You've chosen to wear the Q" as a metaphor for Q-Force. The Q itself is not important, nor is it a major part of the series. As an object, or concept, it is not worthy of even our granularity policy - because it simply does not manifest itself to a notability worthy of an article. Sorry. --TigernoseChatEdits 11:50, April 10, 2012 (UTC)

Do we need to? Shouldn't it simply be mentioned in Comet-strike? Even so, we should consult a strategy guide for its offcial name. --TigernoseChatEdits 12:49, April 12, 2012 (UTC)

I spent the passed 2 days reading the official Ratchet & Clank all 4 one strategy guide and there was no mention of a name to qwarks melee weapon. However we should ask insomniac about it.

Re: Other wiki

That is KBABZ's wiki. You can't just upload images without a license, and you have no permission from him so I am afraid I am going to have to delete all information. Please tell me before uploading images otherwise you can be blocked for uploading images without licensing. Also, please do not copy from that wiki, as I'm sure KBABZ would not want it.

Re:

At the moment, sorry, no. Although you should create a forum topic for the IRC agenda, so we can discuss it nearer to the release. I don't think we should be creating articles about characters and objects from other series', just because they feature in the same game as Ratchet. Only if they are linked to Ratchet in some way (such as Jak and Sly from PS Heroes, they interact with each other all time).

--TigernoseChatEdits 13:13, April 28, 2012 (UTC)

Well, my opinion isn't final, I'm just trying to keep the wiki clean for now. Feel free to make a discussion on our IRC agenda so we can discuss it further and see what the community thinks. --TigernoseChatEdits 15:11, April 28, 2012 (UTC)

Re: GM, SM and SAC

That's not concrete evidence that these games aren't canon at all. Furthermore, you have to consider the fact that were not developed by Insomniac to be a reason that they are not featured on this page. --TigernoseChatEdits 17:19, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

  • That link does strongly suggest they are non-canon, but by not mentioning them unfortunately that is not conclusive evidence that they are not canon - especially due to the varied developers. Many thanks, HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 20:01, June 9, 2012 (UTC)

Game infobox template

Hello. I just thought I'd let you know that, within the game infobox template, the preceded and followed fields for games is for storyline, not release order. The Trilogy is simply a compilation of the first three games so would have no preceded or followed by fields. Many thanks, --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 14:59, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

  • The game itself doesn't have a story involved, neither does it have a chronology. I know the manual does but the manual can be used as a source rather than an "appearance". So there is a small plot to the setting of the game, but it's not the game's story it's found from another source. Kind regards, --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 10:43, June 30, 2012 (UTC)

Hey hello :] Unfortunatly Insomniac hasn't replied me back yet :/ But don't worry, I'll keep trying to get this information for you :D I will ask again today or tomorrow.

Space crab

The only basis for this article is a promo image. We don't know anything about the game, these enemies might even change or be dropped by release. Wait until a press release until we actually get an ounce for information about the game to make an article about these enemies. That article you sourced wasn't actually documenting these enemies, just describing them. --TigernoseChatEdits 16:03, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

Re:The Ratchet & Clank Collection

We did consider that but chose not to as we felt it was not necessary, as it is simply a repackaging existing content and therefore the appearance is still the individual game, not the collection. The exception being very small amounts of content exclusive to the collection which is explained in our new policy. If you have any more questions please let me know. Many thanks, HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 14:06, July 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hi! Insomniac finally replied me! But I didn't like their answer :/ They said that any question I have should be directed to the forums(http://www.insomniacgames.com/community/). But I keep asking things to them :P That's what I don't understand. If you want I can ask them again :]

PS Battle Royale

Thanks for your recent contributions. I believe we are covering PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale in a similar fashion to Heroes on the Move, so full coverage of R&C content but separated as non-canon (e.g. in appearances a sub-section for non-canon appearances). --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 16:30, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

  • OK, thanks for that. We can use that as a source then as well. Insomniac clearly got fed-up with us asking them for further clarification which is understandable. The issue was that IG didn't make it, but it's not IG's license, Sony hold the rights to R&C so canon can become a little murky... Also, GM is not necessarily non-canon yet. Technically, as there is nothing saying it is not, however it certainly is lower priority. Many thanks, --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 20:49, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

Missile Minion

Hey. I wanted to ask you about the Missile Minion page. The article mentions they reappear as Grungarian Bombers in FFA (with an image as well), however I was wondering if you were able to confirm whether or not Missile Minions and Grungarian Bombers were the same enemies. Thanks. --TigernoseChatEdits 16:28, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Do you think you could provide a source for Two and a Half Blargs? Thanks, --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 18:51, September 14, 2012 (UTC)

Help with image

Hi, you uploaded this image a while ago. All images should have a source or license but I'm actually interested to know what game the screenshot came from as it might affect the article. At a guess I'd say A4O, but I'm not sure. I'd appreciate you letting me know - don't worry about the source or license on this image's description page as I'll sort it out due to my interest in the image, once I know what game it from. Thanks, --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 00:00, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

FFA cover art

Hello, just thought I'd let you know that the FFA cover art you uploaded a while ago is actually a fake, cover art is yet to be released. Please be careful when uploading and adding articles to the wiki and look carefully at the sources. Kind regards, --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 19:09, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

Qwark Mech

Hi. Is Qwark Mech a canon name or conjecture? If canon can I have a source for the name please? Kind regards, --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 13:35, November 10, 2012 (UTC)

  • No problem! I've fixed. I presume a lot of your edits about final bosses etc are slightly speculative based on the new trailer? If so then I think what we've done so far is okay and sourced, but please be careful with speculation and ensure you always add any sources available. On a separate note I played the game at Eurogamer 2012 and I cannot wait for release! Many thanks, --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 13:40, November 10, 2012 (UTC)

Re:All-Stars Battle Royale

For now simply add it to the All-Stars Battle Royale article, the article with his name can be redirected to the All-Stars Battle Royale article. Can you place the {{spoiler-top}} on the article when you add the info, and use {{spoiler}} and {{endspoiler}} for the section where you mentioned the main boss - also please make sure you add a source.

Ratchet & Clank Platinum Pack

Hello. I could be mistaken, but I believe that Ratchet & Clank Platinum Pack is the PAL title, while the American title is the Ratchet & Clank Future Pack. Are you in PAL regions? --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 10:42, November 29, 2012 (UTC)

Merge

Hi, just a couple of quick notes about using {{merge}}. When adding the merge template please don't substitute it or use direct code, instead simply place {{merge|Article title of merge location}} and also please only add the merge template to the article that is being merged into the other article. For example add it to the mech page to have it merged into the tank page. Many thanks, --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 16:08, December 2, 2012 (UTC)

Mr Zurgo

Do you have the exact quote? The only one I heard was Zurgo explaining he'd stolen the explosives from the Thugs-4-Less outpost. --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 14:54, December 3, 2012 (UTC)

  • Also, I may be mistaken but I thought this section you removed was correct:

In ''[[Ratchet: Deadlocked]]'', the game started with Ratchet on the [[Starship Phoenix]] where he was then taken to take part in the Gladiator contests. 

--HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 14:58, December 3, 2012 (UTC)

  • Right, thanks. For some reason I thought that was the Starship Phoenix page not the QForce page! --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 15:28, December 4, 2012 (UTC)
  • And Re:Mr Zurgo. Ah! That's what she says... I'd recommend you posting a comment on the talk page, ideally with a link to a YouTube clip or something. --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 16:04, December 4, 2012 (UTC)

Its not his father...

i believe its not his father, and i quote Zurgo "have you looked around the temple? i think youll be surprised to find two dosen charges of pyrocidic demo charges. i stole it from the thug-4-less outpost. this whole place is wired to blow. diabolical twist".

mother: "stauart have you seen your fathers demo charges? his companys suppose to demolish the old gadgetron buliding this afternoon and someone took all the demo charges from the shed".

zurgo replies. "she talking about other demo charges. charges compleatly unrelated to the ones used in this temple! these i stole from the thugs-4 -less. which i said before, which is still true".

he was hesitating in his replay therefore the thug leader cannot be his father.

Re:SAC non canon

We're simply ensuring the content is under the SAC heading, not a spin-off section. We still don't have any proof that any of them are non-canon (especially not for SM), but due to inconsistencies etc it's best to keep their content separate. So for the most part articles remain the same, but some articles have SAC content integrated with other content. We just need to make sure the SAC heading is used for articles about content from SAC and other materials. At the upcoming IRC meeting we'll be discussing a template to highlight any direct conflicts with canon from SM, GM and SAC. I hope I've explained this clearly, if not please let me know. --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 12:57, December 13, 2012 (UTC)

  • In the case of biographies they should remain in the current order, just ensuring all SAC content is under the SAC sub-heading. --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 13:13, December 13, 2012 (UTC)
  • That doesn't make it non-canon. (Unfortunately) It's not for fans to decide. Sony own the franchise, they're in charge. By separating the content into sub-sections (as we have done for most articles) we simply present the facts in an unbiased way and leave up to fans to decide. In answer to your specific questions the "entire race of Ratchet Clones" - as I understand it they were turned into battle Ratchets at the end, I wouldn't consider that a major inconsistency as 'toy' Lombaxes would effectively leave Ratchet as the last Lombax (I'm not saying that's what I personally think, I'm just saying that's another way it could be viewed). "GM ends on a cliffhanger that is never finished because CH was never released." - that doesn't change anything unfortunately, we just simply don't know how that story ends (yet). I'm not saying I like it either. I don't particularly have an opinion either way to be honest but we don't just pick and chose the canon, we just present it in a factual and neutral point of view. --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 14:27, December 13, 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks. Nefarious doesn't count as a mention as as the Nefarious Troopers aren't actually referred to by name (at least as far as we are currently aware) in the game. Sadly I don't have much choice regarding spoilers as the UK release date isn't until next Friday (it may be this Friday but official sources say a week Friday) and I still need to help maintain the wiki. --HunterjHunterj icon Hunterj's Resort 16:36, November 12, 2013 (UTC)
