## Merging planet and location articles

This might have been a pretty bad move. Now if the location and planet pages were small with little room for expansion, this would be a good idea. But if either page has enough content to stand on itself then it might be better to keep them apart. Not to mention throwing them together haphazardly isn't a good idea in general, now instead of 20 small but crappy pages we have 10 larger pages that are an utter mess. If you do merge stuff at least take the time to do it right (or better yet, discuss this sort of stuff). --Light Daxter - Talk 22:37, June 9, 2015 (UTC)

For the record, I necessarily don't agree with LD on this one, I personally think a planet and location page merge is ideal for a few reasons.-- Technobliterator TC 23:23, June 9, 2015 (UTC)

I completely see the point in merging the smaller planet articles if they aren't otherwise featured much beyond the existing location or don't have a lot of room for expansion after properly fleshing out a page and finding it inadequate. But I find that deciding on merging some and not merging others only serves to create more confusion in the long run. Because when do you or do you not merge? It's usually best to decide on this after writing a page and deciding it is too small instead of doing at right now, with the current state of the wiki.

Either way, I improvised a game plan of how to start work most efficiently, instead of picking one category and editing things randomly. It'd be best if I laid this out in an IRC chat though. --Light Daxter - Talk 16:36, June 10, 2015 (UTC)

Doesn't mean that the wiki can't use a second administrator, not mention a handful of edits doesn't mean much if he genuinely intends to contribute. --Light Daxter - Talk 16:31, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

I'm backpedaling pretty hard here, the initial idea was that the wiki was abandoned and that new folks could go and pick it up, but with this new surge of active editors, including some old ones, I won't be needed anymore (not to mention I have no intentions of working with those who led the wiki down the current road). I'll throw my vote around on your administrator request as I think you can still get those rights. I suggest asking Tigernose to see if he can get bureaucratorship and appoint you as admin or simply message the new (returned) editors to vote in on the matter as well, if Tigernose doesn't reply then just hope you get enough approvals and take that to the adoption site. --Light Daxter - Talk 16:47, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I’ve given you admin and bureaucrat rights on this wikia as you requested. You now have the tools you need to clean up, customize and maintain the wikia.

Check out your Admin Dashboard, which can by found by clicking "Admin" on the bottom toolbar -- it has links to all your new tools. Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with your new (old) wikia! -- Wendy (talk 04:18, June 13, 2015 (UTC)

Well that was easier than I thought, good luck Dr Nef and if you need anything just ask. --Light Daxter - Talk 10:25, June 13, 2015 (UTC)

Congrats, DrNefarious! You'll be great, you are definitely willing to help this place and qualified for the job! Per LD, if you need any help or advice, just ask.-- Technobliterator TC 12:24, June 13, 2015 (UTC)

## Ice planet deletion disagreement

I noted that you have just deleted a page of an unknown planet. Since it is a seperate part of a game about an unknown planet (we aren't 100% if that is Siberius), why should it be merged in another article?

Plasmo$\surd$ (t@lk) 15:18, June 13, 2015 (UTC)

• Well, as there has been a discussion about the page, they might knew more than me, so I might be wrong and the page did have to be deleted. But as long as I know, it shouldn't be deleted. I am not sure; if you agree, you can undelete it.

Plasmo$\surd$ (t@lk) 15:46, June 13, 2015 (UTC)

• Ok, I can explain why (if you notice, I had done an edit that it might be Grelbin).

## Impostor

Some user named User:Dr.NefariousAdmin is pretending to be you. --Light Daxter - Talk 15:17, June 14, 2015 (UTC)

## A mere misunderstanding

Although I do not appreciate the way my error was brought into light, nor my characterization as an impostor, I do aknowledge it. It is not my intention to mimic anyone. I'm merely an admin of a certain Dr. Nefarious page on facebook and thought it would be a fitting name for my acount. I hope no quarrel will be brought between us and I'm more than glad to change my acount's name, if it creates true commotion. I do hope you can give me some tips on how to do it, though. I've spent the last fifteen minutes trying to find out by myself and had no luck up until now. Unsigned comment at {{{2}}} by JB Dr. Nefarious1996 (talk • contribs).

It seemed rather suspicious as the user; DrNefarious only received his administrator rights yesterday you see. --Light Daxter - Talk 15:53, June 14, 2015 (UTC)

## Trophies

I tried to talk to the forum for trophies to ask to start earning trophies, but I didn't get any reply. Could you help me? Plasmo$\surd$ (t@lk) 16:57, June 14, 2015 (UTC)

• I think I have done the bronze editor and bronze uploader (100 edits and a sourced and licensed upload).--Plasmo$\surd$ (t@lk) 10:10, June 15, 2015 (UTC)
• Thank you!--Plasmo$\surd$ (t@lk) 09:45, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

## Notability

Hi there, DrNef, nice work you've been doing on the wiki so far! I just wanted to point you to Forum:Notability, to see if you had any comments on it. It was an old forum started by Hunterj back in the day, but I think it could be revised to create a project page/policy for the wiki here. If you need an idea, Project:Notability on Jak Wiki is what I had in mind here, but probably modified to fit R&C wiki needs. Was hoping I could get your thoughts on this. Thanks!-- Technobliterator TC 16:31, June 16, 2015 (UTC)

## Bureaucrate

My input is put. Done and done! --Fullmedalshlong0307 (talk) 16:52, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

Hello, sorry for the late reply. Just wanted to say thanks for taking over the responsibilities. I'm not really able to contribute significantly at the moment but am still just about around... I'm glad there is someone who can keep a closer eye on the wiki, particularly with the upcoming new game and film. If there's anything you need help with at all please let me know and I'll try to reply soon, but unfortunately my time is very limited at the moment. I'm confident you'll help take the wiki forward alongside active editors. It's particularly great to see some older discussions re-opened, separately I might get my bot working on typos etc. that's at least something I can do for now! Many thanks, HunterjHunterj's Resort 20:43, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

## IRC Discussion

Hi there,

Us on the J&D wiki are interested in helping you guys out, now that one of our admins is back. We were wondering if you were interested in an IRC discussion sometime where we chat about a few things we would like to do around here when we move in? If not, we can open a forum or something where we outline the changes we want to make and involve you (though we might end up doing that any for visibility purposes :p). If you let me know whether you're interested/what times you're free, we can start whenever. Presumably beginning with templates/categories or something. Thanks! ^.^-- Technobliterator TC 21:23, June 21, 2015 (UTC)

I'd say that an IRC discussion would likely be miles easier to get everything discussed in a swift fashion so that we can all get on the same page - saves the delay in between replies. I'm almost always on there, btw, you can probably find me any time you log on (though I'll be away most of tomorrow). However, creating a forum is probably also a good idea, considering I'd probably end up making one anyway. :P Your choice.-- Technobliterator TC 23:18, June 23, 2015 (UTC)
I have to say I partially agree with Doc. I've always liked on-wiki discussion over chat rooms, for visibility and organizational purposes. I understand the point about swift replies and efficiency and such, but it works well on Wikipedia and it makes it to where everyone's points are fully articulate/completed, documented, and it also makes it to where disputes/flame wars or useless off-topic comments are less-likely to happen. In my experience I've also noticed that debates/conversations are generally shorter. I agree we can/should use chat rooms behind the scenes for petty stuff or really major disagreements (not that I anticipate any such things), but for major proposals I say we stick to forums/talk pages. —Jak Himself (talk · contributions) 23:24, June 23, 2015 (UTC)
Ah, I see. I understand. I'll gladly start a forum sometime soon, but if you'll be busy over the weeks, that's fine too. My plan is to begin work here more often once I'm satisfied with what I'm doing on another wiki. So I'll be more than happy to begin a forum as soon as that day occurs (could be a week or two?), or you can bug me to start one sooner if you find yourself with more free time before then. Thanks!-- Technobliterator TC 20:39, June 24, 2015 (UTC)

## All Content from the original games

Yes, there will be a previous weapons, gadgets, skins, enemies and bosses from the original series.

Cut-content are listed in bold.

### Enemies & Bosses:

#### Bosses:

So that is all. Thank you. --Thedarkpyrano (talk) 13:58, June 29, 2015 (UTC)

Hello it seems to me that you have already done a tour of Ratchet Wikia battle to put last levels

Ben they launch a subject to give argument why they should be changed.

If you want to help us of course :)

## "Reboot"

Hey, DrNefarious! How are you doing? Didn't know you've became an administrator... congratz! :-)

I'm writing to get some things straight with your last edits xD Do you have a proper source stating that this new R&C game is, indeed, a completely reboot of the series?  As far I'm afraid of, they haven't mentioned such thing... the game will be just a remake of the first game with new elements, like weapons and stuff, and improved graphics. Torta de Limão (talk) 18:45, July 19, 2015 (UTC)

Right, but there're no actual sources for that statement; there're no official sources that call it a "reboot". I don't think it would be appropriate to keep this way, even if it's just a placeholder, because, from what I've seen on those years, sourced information is pratically a must here. Also, we don't know if there will be another game after this PS4 one; so, it's all unsure and opened to speculation. It could, for example, be just a standalone game that serves as an homenage to the first.

I think I have an idea that would work well for this moment, but, as a wiki, it needs approval: my idea is to keep the Movie in the section Other (or Other Media) and the PS4 game next to the original R&C (as a subsection). Of course, we could edit it later, if more things are unfolded. Torta de Limão (talk) 19:03, July 19, 2015 (UTC)

I just think it's better to let go the term "reboot", as the game itself is not considered so; it's considered a remake. Torta de Limão (talk) 22:53, July 21, 2015 (UTC)

May I ask you, kindly, that we review this new idea you and other users had when I was away from here? It's that... it just doesn't make too much sense for me... we don't know if there will be, in fact, a new R&C series. The only clear thing is that the game will be a remake of Ratchet & Clank. We should first wait for more information to show up before going out and putting merely speculative information in a lot of pages. Torta de Limão (talk) 22:55, July 27, 2015 (UTC)

The movie and the game are basically the same thing. It's not two different entries to this "new series"; one is an adaptation of another. That's why I say this doesn't make much sense, at all. We should just consider it as a "remake". Torta de Limão (talk) 22:54, August 6, 2015 (UTC)

## Block: "Thedarkpyrano"

I forgot something: I don't think you should have blocked the user right away for his last edits. I mean, you could've used the warning template before the actual block so the user would be aware to refrain for doing that again. Torta de Limão (talk) 19:13, July 19, 2015 (UTC)

Oh, ok then! Torta de Limão (talk) 22:51, July 21, 2015 (UTC)

## Portable Infoboxes

We’re reaching out to a few of our top communities, hoping to get you on board with the migration to the new infobox markup. And we have tools to help!

Why we’re doing this

Simply put: Most current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and indeed any device that doesn’t use desktop-style displays. On desktops and laptops, they often look amazing. The problem is that Wikia’s traffic is trending mobile.

There is an important graph from our forum post about infoboxes a couple weeks back, and I want to share it here as well:

Mobile is the future. Not just for Wikia, but for the web as a whole. Take a look at the recent trends and future growth predictions for mobile traffic - it's staggering.

We partnered with the Wikia community to create this new markup to make sure that your hard work can be displayed on mobile devices (as well as any future technologies) easily and without any new coding conventions. It’ll take some effort up front, to be sure, but we’re here to help, and the work you put in now will pay for itself tenfold in the future.

Tools we’ve designed to ease the process

We’ve enabled two new features on your community. One is a tool for migrating the “old” infobox code to the new markup. It identifies templates on your wikia that look like infobox templates and places a box on the right rail of the template page. When you click the “Generate draft markup” button in this box, it opens a new tab containing a draft of your infobox using the new markup.

The second is a new feature on Special:Insights that will highlight which infoboxes on your wikia have not been migrated to the new infobox markup. It’s fairly intuitive - you can click on the infobox title link itself to see the old markup, or simply click the “Convert!” button on the right, which performs the same action as the “Generate draft markup” button.

This is our help page for the new markup. Please let me know if you have any questions.

## Gaming footers

Hi, DrNefarious!

I was wondering if you had any input on this site being included in the new gaming footers? We'd love to see the Ratchet and Clank community included!

Best regards,

Raylan13 (talk) 16:55, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

Consider this site listed and approved - thanks! Raylan13 (talk) 17:31, September 19, 2015 (UTC)

## Italian wiki

Hi. When Italian users are on this site, a message appears at the top of every page: "Ratchet & Clank wiki is also available in Italian". And then, there is the link for enter in a little and very bad wiki. Can you correct that link? The true Ratchet & Clank italian wiki is this: http://it.ratcheteclank.wikia.com/wiki/Ratchet_%26_Clank_Italia_Wiki. Because the wiki you put in the link is extremely poor in every sense. Thank you for the collaboration.

No problem. But first I wanna see the true link

Greetings I felt it was meaningful to mention the Rynocirator's power seeing as it is hated on yet very strong. I'm still a bit new here but i'm sure i'll be good.

## List of gadgets page mistake

• Hi! All the edditters of the wiki must help to edditted the page "List of gadgets". Sir Dr. Nefarious please look into it RcAlTaCnHkET (talk) 10:42, November 25, 2015 (UTC)RcAlTaCnHkET

## Re: Other side stories and events section

I never got the real answer about them being non canon, although I was confirmed they were spin-offs, directly from an e-mail sent by Insomniac Games. But, nevermind, no problem. It's not the same thing and this issue is yet to be solved. I'm just curious about how we can confirm those "ambiguously canon events" take place after x game, as we have no real information to cover that.

But, overall, I realized you haven't seen all my changes on the page; a particularly section, named "Powers, abilities and weaponry", was poorly written and did not comply with the manual of style we use in this Wiki. What people have to keep in mind is that this is a game. If Ratchet is a "professional sniper, vehicle expert" that can "dodge most of enemy's attacks", that is completely up to the player. It's very relative.

I took some time editing that section in belief of improving the article. I am going to revert the edits again, but only on that said section, ok? Torta de Limão (talk) 15:53, December 6, 2015 (UTC)

## Years

Whether we should take those dates from the R&C 1 magazines or not it's still ambigual. Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, for instance, takes place in a different galaxy that does not necessarily need to have the same calendar. Basically, we could only state those years for Solana (although I still don't agree with this, as we don't know precisely how the calendar works as it relates to other games in the series). Torta de Limão (talk) 09:37, January 30, 2016 (UTC)

• We know the year from Ratchet and Clank's point of view - even if it is a different galaxy it is still that year. It's from an Insomniac Games canon source, so it's fine to add.Doc Nef (talk) 13:06, January 30, 2016 (UTC)
• I know, but that's only sourced for that particular galaxy. Sorry if I am being a bit boring to discuss some things with you xD However, I was teached that the content put in this Wiki needs to, preferably, have a source. What we are doing is estimating something we are not entirely sure about. I don't agree with that. Torta de Limão (talk) 14:09, February 3, 2016 (UTC)
• Well, how about on the Going Commando page we put "It takes place in the year 5355 going by the Solana Galaxy's year system". I'm sorry if I come off not wanting to discuss things, it's just that there's a lot of work to do on this wiki and I don't really like being interupted from moving on to the next thing that needs fixing/adding.Doc Nef (talk) 15:15, February 3, 2016 (UTC)
