I'm sorry about the Tachyon edit war. I have had talks with Mateo on tachyon's talk page, have a look. The edit war was also over tachyon's status he kept wrighting his status as Deceased, however, we did not see his fate in the game it self so i put his staus as Missing in Action. To settle this i put it on the IRC meetings agenda. I wasn't trying to start an edit war i was just trying to tell mateo no proof tachyon died or survived kinda like what happend to Nefarious.

Hey, at least we're not saying "GET RID OF THE PICTURES YOU LITTLE-", because we'd get banned for saying that. Maybe you can copy the images and create a page over on the toolbar on the left <--, title it User:ScorpionXDragon/Gallery, so it won't get into the mainspace and be deleted. I have noticed you are working hard on your userpage, but my instructions are the easiest and you should still make some edits away from the userpage. And sorry for being mean, but it's not my decision on what rules there are. If you need any help following my instructions please contact me, HaYdOs271Chat to me! ??? 22:08, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

Heh, the last time I remembered to update the main page was last Saturday, then I forgot the following Sunday. Now I remembered, but you beat me to the chase. Nice to see you took care of everything featured on the main page, it takes a darn long time to do it... --Tigernose • Chat • Edits 12:37, May 30, 2010 (UTC)
My sincerest apologies. I got carried away. Nulls get on my nerves sometimes when it should be clear that opinions, jokes or speculation should stay out of an article. It won't happen again. --Mateo22Contact 17:35, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
I thought that when using planet in front of a particular world (e.g. Planet Daxx), it became a proper noun because it was part of the world's full title? Are we going to assume this is not the case with planet because it acts this way in ACIT? I was sure that planet was used as a proper noun elsewhere, or was I mistaken? --Mateo22Contact 21:13, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
That'd be fine. I can probably have a version up by then or even earlier. What's holding me up now is support for IE. I have to go through and add the IE junk so that the transparent pngs will load correctly. (Also, I might have to do something for gradients in IE because the built in IE renderer messes up text.) I've already done the merging, so that isn't a problem. However, how much of the old code do you want to keep? The css is very long (take a look at User:Jxtreme/monaco.css). --Jxtreme 14:24, June 14, 2010 (UTC)
I understand, however the situation at Talk:Death has cooled down from how it was before I protected it. I felt that there were too many edit wars so I protected it for an indefinite amount of time for the admins to fix, but I never had the oppurtunity to fix it so I forgot about it... Neffy and Mateo of course did request, but I did not believe it was the right decision to unprotect, although I was unaware of the current situation at the page. Of course, I should have looked into before making the decision, and I will next time. I'm always more lenient on most circumstances when it comes to protecting a page - I give it an expiry time, just this time things were a little heated up.
If I had the oppurtunity to work on it, then I would have unprotected it as soon as possible, but I didn't and totally forgot about it. Sorry about that.
Nifky, i think it would be smart of you if you protected the Death article, as the Edit Wars don't seem to stop, and some people still refuse to accept Drek is dead, you know those hardcore Drek fans. I will change it back to the good verson, but please i really think the article needs to be protected. Neffy545 17:02, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
Hey Nifky. Regarding the Futuro theme, I will open a forum for feedback during the trial period. You mentioned a screenshot gallery as well on Jxtreme's talk, and I'm happy to help out on that (I can get a screenshot from the iPhone for example and from as many browsers as possible [although IE and Chrome don't have moz-borders]). There's just one thing though, I've seen many problems with the skin at the moment. Jxtreme linked a new version of it, but he had trouble updating and the skin has gone all weird. Here's a picture:
As you can see, it's a problem, so has Jxtreme got it sorted. Just to tell you that I'm viewing it from User:Tigernose/monaco.css and I imported it from Jxtreme's local css page.
Anyway, just reply back and hopefully I can see you on IRC or something so we can see what we can do. --Tigernose • Chat • Edits 17:54, June 15, 2010 (UTC)
Update the skin to the User:Jxtreme/monaco.css one. I just made some fixes. Also, do you admins have any extra icons in the page bar for admin purposes that I need to add? --Jxtreme 12:59, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
It wasn't about that. It used to be on the lacerator page saying he was holding it. Clearly it was a glitch because the ammo screen was on but he still had a wrench. I failed to point that out at the start of the argument. No Melon! :P Mobutu4(R) My Talk--My Mood 05:36, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
I created an account here a while ago, but forgot the name I used, and my password. Would it be okay with you if I created another account? Thanks, and sorry I am an AU; I felt it was the safest way. 188.8.131.52 19:50, June 28, 2010 (UTC)
An AU is just an annomous contributor, and I edited for a few days in January before things popped up, and I forgot my username. I thought you had a sockpuppet policy. That's why I wanted to ask someone :D. 184.108.40.206 16:17, June 30, 2010 (UTC)
Just so you know, I have played the Gamut of R&C Games MINUS the PSPs and Crack in Time, which I just began last night after finishing Quest for Booty. My wife Completed the Future Trilogy on Sunday and is now in Challenge Mode on Crack. We just got our PS3 when FFXIII came out. Yeah, for the first time ever, we are late adopters. BTW, Tools is the first R&C Game that I did not finish at 100%; I still have to get "Everybody Dance Now" but I was dying to continue the storyline after Challenge Mode that I needed to move on and I will go back with my 200 Million Bolts and 5 Million Raritanium and make the world Dance Wit Me, again. I was a Club & Mobile DJ from 1977-1994. My Screen Name stands for my DJ Name... World Famous DJ Joey G. :-) Oh, and as a sub-quest for myself in my 2nd Challenge Mode, I'd like to see what comes after 999,999,999 Bolts. does it stop or to I break 1 Billion. ;-)
I am more than willing and able to help out around the site. My working life has been split between Music and Financial and Office Business. 6 Years in Banking, 8 on Wall Street, My wife and I ran our own Multimedia Web Design Biz for 5 years, and aside from DJing, I've been a Musician (Guitar studied since 9, Bass, Drums, Keys, and Classical and Latin Percussion) since ever, I have my Degree in Recording Engineering, Master Class Certificates in several DAW systems including ProTools, Composer, Arranger, Producer, Conductor of everything from a Jazz Combo, to Musical Director of a Stage Band, to Assistant Percussion Section Leader and Music Committee member as well as once in a while Conductor of a Community Concert Band of 85 Musicians. Basically, what I'm saying is if you need work with Music or Audio in general, call me. :-)
Also, I'm experienced as an editor from my time on Wall Street, writing and maintaining the Company Procedure manuals for a Gov't Contracted Financial Company. So if anyone needs help finalizing a long post for format, grammar and spelling. I can help there as well.
Right now, I have a lot of free time due to a Broken Left Hip that needs to be replaced, so don't feel bad if you want to burden me with some stuff. Frankly it would help the boredom.
Sorry to ramble on, but like I sort of said, I am a huge fan of these games and can't wait to become more involved in the community.
Hope all is well with you. I look forward to chatting with you soon.
If you are in the US, enjoy the 4th. If not, you still get one any way so enjoy it. :-)
Yep, I think it's a good time to hand out the estimation templates, and I hope this meeting deadline doesn't lag like before, however I can't hand them out at the moment - but can you? If you could I would appreciate it. Thanks! --Tigernose • Chat • Edits 17:42, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
The IRC meeting template says its on July 14 (Wednesday). I'm pretty sure the estimation was agreed at July 17, Saturday, so if this also happened on other people's talk pages, we ought to change it so people don't get confused. Seeing as you have the list of people, could you change it? If you can't, just send me the list and I'll fix it. --Tigernose • Chat • Edits 15:03, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
Do you know where the Ratchet & Clank series' enemy names are taken? Not all of them were mentoined in the games (skill points, dialogue etc...) and unlike Going Commando, others didn't have a monsterpedia. Are these canonical? --Tiku-Orava 23:21, July 10, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry that I've not edited for about five months (or at least only edited occasionally), I should hopefully be editing a little more now, but not all the time. I was going to ask you how to remove the new editing system, but then I realised that it only showed up when I wasn't signed in The b-Unit's167th Drophyd 15:52, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Hey. As I probably won't be able to see you tomorrow on IRC, I felt this urgency must be posted here. The IRC meeting time was confirmed on short notice - I don't blame you looking at the upcoming deadline - but I converted to my local time (which is British Savings Time, one hour ahead) and I don't think I'd be able to attend the last half of the agenda seeing its size. So I was thinking we could move it an hour back? Hunterj also prefers this time, and I calculated that the earlier the better for Australians and Americans, right? So the way I'm looking at this, it's a good idea for all, but of course I need some sort of confirmation on how this will affect everyone.
If you agree, can we change the time as soon as possible as we can't waste enough time for changing it on even shorter notice for our users? If you don't agree, then we'll have to stick with this half. Luckily, we've learnt our lessons and our IRC meetings will be a lot quicker.
Also, me and Hunterj agreed to seeing as he's active again and able to set up our meetings, the IRC meetings should be regular and every 2 months so important things aren't put on hold. --Tigernose • Chat • Edits 18:02, July 14, 2010 (UTC)
In case you didn't know, cause I don't want people to think this is false info, there is a new Ratchet & Clank comic series coming out that will be leading up to the next game. Seeing as most of you didn't know I already created the articles about this new series. According to the link I found, it will be a comic series with a mini-adventure leading up to the next game. It is also said to answer some questions about Ratchet's history and the Lombaxes. The new main villain of the comic series is going to be a Markazian planet thief named Artemis Zogg. Dr. Nefarious and Lawrence will also appear, and just as everyone speculated, he indeed did teleport the doctor off the ship before it crashed. I don't really know if the link I put works but if it doesn't just go on the internet and find it by typing Ratchet and Clank comic series or just Ratchet and Clank comics, it should come up, and you can put a new link. I would've done it myself, but it is really late at the moment and I have to wake up in time for the IRC Meetings, where I will discuss the rest of this matter. Anyway, with a new game being confirmed, I think we should take away the hinting ACiT will be the last cause we know its not going to be now. If you have any problems finding it, tell me. Neffy545 06:42, July 17, 2010 (UTC)
Damn, I forgot to put on my alarm clock. Sorry if I missed the IRC Meetings, man we really need to make the time later next time. Anyway, I already told Haydos about this silly problem but dispite so many confimed sources, including one that says Ratchet and Clank killed him in the comic, people are still finding it hard to accept he's dead and say dumb speculation like he teleported out. Man, its so, well, logical to see he died, a huge impact from a rocky planet should/will/could/would kill anyone, even Blarg. And if by some chance he survived that, he was in a mech that was like over hunderds of pounds and we saw him in it, so the mech itself could have easily crushed him. And if that didn't kill him, then the blast from the Deplantizer did, if his mech didn't crush him, it would be over poweering him, and therefore would not be able to escape, even if he had a teleporter. Man, Nifky i'm sure you agree that it is stupid fan-fiction to say he survived and is already confirmed. Neffy545 01:28, July 18, 2010 (UTC)
I hope I will be at the next IRC. This time i'll try not to stay up all night lol. And, OK, I will give I link to the comics that confirms he's dead, but I really think people should see that it is plan and clear that he id dead already. Oh, BTW, HunterJ keeps erasing it every time I put deceased, may you be able to explain the reasons and the confirmation that he is dead, so I can put his TRUE status once again. Neffy545 19:52, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
I have been eraseing this guys edits for a long time now, and now he's just starting to piss me off, he keeps saying Secret Agent Clank takes place aftre ACiT, and when I keep telling him it doesn't and that it was confirmed to take place after SM, he puts it anyway. He also keeps putting Nef's current status as deceased, he must not be listening to the new sources and the comics. Anyway, you have already gave him a warning and I warned him two times already so I thought for his own good it would make sense for me to tell you, as I don't think he's going to stop. I also think he may be a sock puppet as another unregistrated user wrights the same things he does. To find him, just go to the edits I undid like Nefarious or Ratchet and go to history, he should be right there. 01:30, July 23, 2010 (UTC)
I can't remember if I gave out the FA awards when ACiT was given FA status, I don't think I did. Would you mind having a look through the history to see who helped make it an FA and then either give me a list of them or award them for me? Thanks. I've gone through the RC from this week, so it's been checked up to the time of leaving this message. HunterjHunterj's Resort 22:14, July 24, 2010 (UTC)
Regrettably, I overlooked the date the status was given to Flint Vorselon and assumed I was partially responsible, so apologies for my oversight. In any case, I thank you and Hunterj very much for your generosity in being lenient with this award! I am currently doing my best to make Vorselon's article as shinny as possible, and am extremely grateful for your support of my work that goes into these pages. Thanks again!!! --Mateo22Contact 01:33, September 29, 2010 (UTC)
Recent events on the Ratchet & Clank wiki and on other wikis has lead me to the conclusion that we need to have the first administrative meeting in the history of the R&C wiki. This would be an IRC meeting focusing on administrators - other users may attend but will not be personally invited (e.g. no sitenotice changes) to the meeting. It would be best for this to be as soon as possible. I think either this coming weekend or the weekend after (2nd or 3rd of October, or 9th and 10th). It would be a short meeting with no pre-set agenda as such (we will not be going through the IRC meeting agenda). It should last no more than an hour, although I expect it to be shorter. Please let me know what dates and times (in UTC) you should be able to attend both this weekend and next weekend so I can see what fits best for us admins! A response as soon as possible would be appreciated. Thanks, and sorry for the short notice. HunterjHunterj's Resort 20:40, September 30, 2010 (UTC)
Hello. I reported this to Hunterj weeks ago, but he has not yet responded. The page is called Mr. Men Wiki that only says "MR funny". He is 220.127.116.11 (I don't know why this is a redlink), and he has never contributed except to that page once. I am just saying that this page should be deleted as it is completely unrelated. Thanks for your time. DaRanger 17:48, November 11, 2010 (UTC)
Thank You, that was kind of bothering me. Once again Thanks. DaRanger 17:13, November 12, 2010 (UTC)
I'm being wrongly accused by you of creating "Fanon" articles but I'm really not. I"m getting my info from the Ratchet and Clank comics. I'm not making things up. Hope you understand and thanks for reading this.
I would just like to remind you that I get all my Ratchet&Clank info from the games,comics etc. of Ratchet & Clank. Basically the franchise.Peter17982 14:43, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Ah, spamming. The obvious way to be blocked. WARNING: Block imminent. Webtv4 02:14, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
I see you are starting to block the IPs of the person that has been spamming their name. Just to let you know, Wikia have updated their system to catch some of what this person is adding, but it may not catch everything. For example, some of the things this person has added include balloons, being a warrior, friends or family members that have been kidnapped, as well as the names Cillian and/or Lorcan, sometimes in conjunction with their surname of Darcy.
They are continuing to branch out to more wikis, spamming as they go. In order to get ahead of their little "game" and reduce the amount of time you have to spend cleaning up after them, I recommend placing blocks on all the IP addresses they have used.
Each of the links have been adjusted so that they will take you to the Block user page for your wiki. As you can see, the IP address changes each time, though I have seen a couple of them repeat occasionally. As an alternative, you may want to set a block on the 18.104.22.168/17 and 22.214.171.124/17 ranges. Note, however, that this will catch a lot of IP addresses.
The IP list is for all affected wikis and Wikipedia, not just here. The one that started with 32.151 was a typo and has been corrected to 92.251. The two /17 block ranges were actually suggested by VegaDark on the Report Spam page. For the wiki I'm an admin on, I opted to set individual blocks for 1 year, which is our policy for spam. If it was a problem on just one or two wikis, I would have set a shorter block as a deterrent against repeating this bad behavior, but once I saw how frequently EdFanon was being hit, it became spam.
Other than their names, there's not much that's consistent, but saying that he "is a warrior" and that a friend or family member "has been kidnapped" seem to be occasional themes.
I wasn't aware that you were now a part of the VSTF, but I did accidentally find out that the spam filter had been updated, so that will go a long ways towards solving this problem. Hopefully they will find something better and more constructive to do. -RRabbit42 (leave a message) 07:13, January 21, 2011 (UTC)
Per a request by Hunterj on IRC, I've set up forums for the more important topics on the IRC agenda. Could you add your opinion to the discussions? —JxtremeMy talk 03:05, July 16, 2011 (UTC)

The new user, Azimuth (something like that) has edited Your mother page. This page is a candidate for deletion because it is useless and has no effect on any Ratchet and Clank game. Azimuth is raising suspicion in my books, so what I'm saying is, if he makes a silly edit, mabye you should ban him. I haven't been on in a few days, so I don't know what happened to the Your Mother page. If he deleted info from it, then all is well.
User:Jack's Posse Fic is still telling admins on other wikis to get him unblocked on pokemon.wikia.com and nickelodeon.wikia.com! please global perma ban him! 126.96.36.199 17:31, January 5, 2012 (UTC)
Hi, I don't know how active you are, but I've uploaded File:Mr.Zurkon.png, a version of the jpg image but without the white background. As I'm not an admin, I'm not sure if I should have done this without permission, and so I haven't edited the links to the jpg image to replace it. I'd just like to ask if this is ok?
Secondly, if you look here, you'll see an idea I had for standard layouts across certain pages. If this were to go ahead, these layouts would be made mandatory across pages of their category. It'd overall hopefully make pages neater, help with adding content for new pages and improve organization. However, I've no real place to propose this, as I'm not sure whether there are forums up anywhere, and the IRC meeting doesn't look like it's happening soon. Any help or opinions regarding this?
The page is not even close to a good page. Your mother is being placed for deletion. I've added a tag that will notify the admin to delete the page. I'm also expecting a block. Webtv4 02:11, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
Hello! I want to ask if I could do some kind of organization in the pages Ratchet, and Clank. What I want to do is to put some games in one section. For example, Secret Agent Clank is a spin off, and Ratchet & Clank: Going Mobile is too, so it should be put in the section Gaming spin offs. And the comics, along with the Manga, in the section Other or Other media. So, can I do this? :P Thanks :)
Hi im User Ryno4ever and i own all the Ratchet and clank Official strategy guides. recently Ive been having this argument over the proper name of an Item Ratchet gets In Going Commando. That item is the Glider or as The ratchet and clank going commando guide calls it the Momentum Glider. Now i know in-game when he recives the item it says You got the glider, however in the description it says The momentum Glider. the user malllo says its an adjective but i disagree. I disagree because in the Official Strategy Guide its called momentum glider and in game description shows that its called momentum glider also sure Momentum is not capitiliezed but that might be a spelling error. The game guide states time and time again that when ratchet uses the item it reads Momentum Glider. what is your opinion on this should it be changed to Momentum Glider or just remain The Glider.
I have begun a task to restore each and every page to accuracy within this wiki, to make a long story short. I would like first for you to know this (hence why you will likely see my name frequently in recent edits). Secondly, I wish to have a "project" created for my task, if you and/or other admins would be willing to create one and recruit others to help me out in this endeavor.
(Sorry for the straight-to-business perspective, but I want to get this message out quickly to each admin, since I will be posting this on each admin's talk page, so that I can get a reply from whoever is on the most.)
Thank you for your assistance, should you give any. Divine Paladin 03:58, March 27, 2012 (UTC)
