Re: Months[edit source]

That was a big fail, wasn't it? Anyway, I had concussion so I have an excuse. elmo's ujelly? ramblings 07:27, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

Thats nice and all and I am happy to accept that but what I do not get is that there is loads of stuff I see that counts as speculation if mine does yet happily sits there with no removal. However I put something with reasonable evidence and it isn't allowed. Please explain to me how it is fair for my edit to be removed for reasons no one else seems to keep to? Oh and I know he wants me kicked and all but how am I breaking the rules? I just want to know how this is fair on me as a member of the community to be subject to a rule no one else seems to care about? Nism100 11:50, February 14, 2012 (UTC)

Thats fair enough, but if they see a roadside bomb on the side of the road, they aren't just going to leave it. I see allot of it. All I want is to see the rule a little more used in the community if I get told off for it. If I was to remove some of the clearly speculative stuff I would get moaned at and that is the thing I am on about here. If I have to listen to this rule, why doesn't everyone else and if they do, how come I still see allot of it? that is my point Nism100 12:06, February 14, 2012 (UTC)

A minor tip[edit source]

When something is on a numbered list (#), to make new paragraphs use <br /><br /> (f.ex. I have a concern.<br /><br />This is a new paragraph.; this would show as

I have a concern.

This is a new paragraph.) Otherwise it'll break the list and the numbering starts over. - Spetsnaz Logo MW2.png MLGISNOT4ME [Talk] - 12:12, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

Me and Eltomo discussed this the other day. COD:LEAK only protects the mainspace, nothing else, which is why we have had blogs about leaked information and leaked images on the filespace in the past.

Chat ban[edit source]

Why did i get a ban from chat,you DID NOT say why.

Also,i AM NOT on the chat/bans page,and i do not know how long my ban will be.

Also,if it was because in one of my message the chat history was copied and posted,IT WAS NOT MY FAULT,my computer bugged,i did not do that in purpose,im on the chat from April on a almost daily basis and i never spammed.

Also,you did not warn me in any kind,and other users getting warnings and kicks before they get a ban,but you banned me indifenently NOT STATING a reason.Lovely -.-

I want this thing cleared out and to see your answer.


Rider of the light 16:19, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

Question[edit source]

You banned me a minute after you kicked me, giving me no warning before you banned me. Can you please explain? I thought users were to be given warnimgs before being banned. MetlTalk 02:40, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

That still doesn't justify your banning me. You gave me no warnings before kicking me, and then you flat out banned me a minute after I came back, with no warning there either. I don't care if I was one ban away from being perma'd, it is standard operating procedure to warn users before they are banned. Therfore, I do not see the reasoning behind my banning. MetlTalk 02:45, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Again, flat out banning someone without warning is in violation of Chat Mod expectations. If I broke a rule, you should of told me, and if I broke it again, ban me the next time I did it, not ban me the minute I come back imto chat with no warning given. And that was the only rule I broke, so I see no reason behind this ban. I'm actually going to talk to Callofduty4 about this tomorrow, I feel this is an unfair and unjustified ban. MetlTalk 02:53, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Where does it say that posting personal information is to be taken as seriously as posting porn/shock links? That was never written on the COD:CHAT page, and I've never seen that stated in any discussion, whether on a forum or on chat itself. MetlTalk 03:03, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

A Formal Apology from User:Metlman13[edit source]

Hey Joe, I just wanted to come by today and say I'm sorry for posting a link to your facebook the other day on chat. It was an honest mistake on my part, it completely slipped my mind that I needed to get your permission first before linking it, and therfore, I was quite angry and confused at the time the banning took place. I also apologize if that led to unwanted damage to your facebook page, as I was genuinely curious to see if that profile really belonged to you.

Anyways, I hope you read this, and of you did, thanks for your time. If not, I'll find time soon to talk to you, I have 4 exams to take this week, and school ends for me on Thursday. Moreover, I'm looking forward to Monday, when E3 starts. :D

It's been an honor being in chat for this long, so I guess this is goodbye. I'll talk to you guys soon.

Community Newsletter[edit source]

Wiki-wordmark.png

Wiki Community Newsletter for Saturday, March 1st

The newsletter will focus on changes to the wiki within the last month and a few notifications for users as well!

What happened last month?
[edit source]

  • Hyperborrean22 suggested we remove opinion blogs from the front page and allow anyone to create them, not just News Team members. After a very longwinded discussion between him and Sam, it was deemed the proposal was in bad faith. Forum:Opnion blogs (Opened 15:50, February 16, 2014; closed 17:39, February 20, 2014)
  • Kylet357 noticed that the wiki's official YouTube channel has been inactive and only lightly used, and suggested we put it to better use by asking for improvement ideas. Several good ideas were brought up, such as level walkthroughs and partnerships with existing YouTubers, but in the end it was decided that there exists too much competition for the channel to thrive and not enough user interest in putting effort into the videos. Forum:CoD Wiki YT Channel (Opened 02:15, December 1, 2013; closed 16:30, February 25, 2014)
  • Egon Eagle suggested a new section in mainspace articles for references to the CoD series in popular culture and cited a few examples. The forum received little attention, but after two weeks was closed with the unanimous dicision that those references should remain in the trivia section. Forum:Call of Duty in popular culture (Opened 16:07, February 13, 2014; closed 22:39, February 27, 2014)
  • Verantha was voted February's Featured User! She was previously Featured User in January of 2012. A warm congratulations and big thanks to her for her admirably consistent additions to mainspace articles.

What's happening this month?
[edit source]

  • Call of Duty Wiki:Articles for Deletion has several articles nominated, so please consider dropping by and providing some valuable feedback.
  • Call of Duty Wiki:Requested Improvement Drive Articles is an ongoing project to improve the articles that desperately need it. Argo and many other users put a lot of hard work into it and it would be greatly appreciated if you could help out!
  • Kat has suggested we change the skin of the wiki to something less dark, and has provided a mockup. Some other possible avenues of change have been brought up as well. Forum:Wiki skin revamp
  • Sam noticed a section at the bottom of some pages labeled "Must Watch Videos" that closely resembles the "Related Videos" feature we chose to disable some time ago. After the issue was raised, we all noticed that it only appears every so often. Forum:Must Watch Videos
  • Callofduty4 and Sam have together proposed that we do away with our leaked information policy on the grounds that: it severely limites our ability to post relevant information that would draw viewership; Activision has never asked any other large site to stop posting leaked info like we do, which is unfair and unwarranted; and since we have received no reply from Activision after repeated attempts to clear things up, it's about time we took things into our own hands. It has also been suggested by others that we contact Wikia staff for their take on the situation. Forum:Retiring COD:LEAK
  • AntiScootaTwo has suggested we either allow low-quality Ghosts images to be put into mainspace articles, or start a new image project to combat the amount of Ghosts weapon pages sorely in need of images. The main issue is the lack of editors that own the PC copy or a capture card. Forum:Ghosts Weapon images
  • Sam has lamented that the trivia sections of many articles have become long and filled with untrivial information, and some possible improvements are being discussed. Forum:Regarding trivia sections
  • Damac feels that the recent decline in the quality of news articles has led to decreased readership, and has asked for suggestions for improvement. Prominent ideas so far include more professionalism and a link to this forum. Forum:Quality of News
  • Kylet357 thought it might be necessary to have a new category for satire blogs, but after some reconsideration has changed his proposal to a "non-serious" category. Forum:Satire Category for Blogs

Other reminders
[edit source]

This month's newsletter was made by Joe Copp

Newsletter[edit source]

Had a slight teething issue, but has now been sent out to all those that were signed up. 00:27, March 2, 2014 (UTC)
Template will just {{Newsletter}} but Subst will post the contents of the template out as if it were an actual post. Which functions a bit better on a talk page as it stops people accidental editing the template page, or pushing it around. 00:48, March 2, 2014 (UTC)

​Newsletter[edit source]

It looks really nice man. Definitely gotta keep this going. It's monthly, right? Zombie Rank 8 Icon BOII.png Kylet357 · talk  01:25, March 2, 2014 (UTC)

RE: Well, you could pass it on to someone else to do when you can't or have a team of people to do it or just leave it as a new thing for the News Team to do. I actually wouldn't mind helping out with it. Zombie Rank 8 Icon BOII.png Kylet357 · talk  01:25, March 2, 2014 (UTC)

Game to try out[edit source]

Hey Joe, I passed around a few beta codes around to some people on here (CoD 4 and Kat, to name two of the five) for a game that I play sometime ago now. Whether they were used or not, I don't know, but I was emailed another one. The game is called Doom Warrior. It's made by Neil Yates and his dev company Creaky Corpse. They made the bird-eye view, zombie MMORPG Dead Frontier. Anyway, Doom Warrior is a very M-rated game. It does contain partial nudity for the female characters and of course it contains gore. There a few more things that might not be of your taste (there's a bit more sexual content than I'd like to admit). If it doesn't sound to your liking, then by all means pass this code on to someone who might be interested. Otherwise, here's the beta key for your latest game:

mucdo

www.doomwarrior.com is where you'll find the download for the game. In case you're worried about if your computer isn't strong enough, this game doesn't require a computer with a strong graphics card, which is pretty good. Anyway, have fun with the game if you end up playing it. Maybe I might see ya on there.

Thank you...[edit source]

RE:Warning templates[edit source]

I think with some templates we can just strip the shell and they'll work. Others, such as Vandalism, might need a bit of tweaking so its more a warning and not a warning with a list. I'm certain I can do some of them when I'm free, but right now most of my energy is directed to getting the theme forum going forwards and not backwards. 20:24, April 28, 2014 (UTC)

Regarding the Monthly Newsletters[edit source]

I've noticed that monthly newsletters haven't been done in a while. Seeing as how no one has done them lately, I was hoping I might be able to work on them. Sam said that it would be best to talk to you, since it was originally your idea. Could I do the newsletters, please? http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2013/276/1/2/bionicle__unity_duty_destiny_by_cyberpictures-d6p3li2.pngLegos-Rule-15 Talk 04:33, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, maybe you'll get to become a bit more active again soon! Also, thank you in regards with the newsletter. I'll make sure to do good on it. http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2013/276/1/2/bionicle__unity_duty_destiny_by_cyberpictures-d6p3li2.pngLegos-Rule-15 Talk 04:23, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

Forum[edit source]

The Call of Wikia forum has come to a vote. I just wanted to let you know as you were one of the users that suggested we make another forum regarding blogs like Magmas, and the NST rule. I just wanted to let you know as if you weren't able to make that forum it would sort of weaken the compromise. So wanted to let you know so you could be active for the end vote of this and the creation of the new forum after. Thanks. 04:44, August 6, 2014 (UTC)

Yo I'm getting the hell out of here before this gets deader than 90's music[edit source]

You're a good guy, and a good admin, so I hope you make it higher one day.-Diego

Merry X-mas![edit source]

Not sure if you still come by, but I'll leave this here :)

Discussions and looking ahead[edit source]

Hi Joe,

I wanted to check in and let you know that any involvement you wish to have over in Discussions is welcome and appreciated! It's encouraging to see that you think there's some potential there. For the most part there have not been any true problem users, but it would be great to have an admin available to set local blocks when needed. It's a holiday weekend in the US and the UK, as you probably know, so I will likely check in later next week about a few things as we move forward with the plan to make it a place for readers to talk about the wiki content. But of course feel free to ask me anything in the meantime. Thanks! -BertH (help forum | blog) 19:51, May 25, 2017 (UTC)

Discussions[edit source]

Hi Joe,

Apologies for the delay in reaching out.

I wanted to check in about two general things related to Discussions and get your thoughts, so that we can be coordinated.

1) Areas of focus where we can crafting some strategies and specific posts, to talk to the app users about the wiki.[edit source]

In this area, I think we can all work together — you, other admins and community members, the volunteer mods, staff — if we just coordinate on strategy. But as someone who knows the wiki content the best, we’ll need your guidance.

Potential things to direct the Discussions/app users to:

Article feedback

What sections of content (categories, subject areas, etc) do you know need some work? Where would feedback from readers be helpful?

Take a look at the Insights list of popular pages - are there any that make you cringe or wish that those pages were in better shape?

Are there any content or format issues that you guys debate, where some reader feedback could help decide something?

Getting the “fresh eyes” perspective on things can be helpful, but you need to ask specific questions and give them specific links.

Good places to start editing

Same question: What sections of content do you know need some work? Do any pages need to be updated with some “easy” changes, things that might be a little mundane for experienced editors? This could be things like adding images, updating stats for recent releases, info on less-trafficked tie-in media or merchandise. Do you guys maintain any to-do lists?

I know you’re somewhat recently returned to the wiki. Last year we added a feature called the Community Page, which includes automated lists and area to make your own to-do list. This is intended as a starting point for new editors.

2) Moderation[edit source]

I noticed that often, some user’s posts are getting deleted when they’re not following the guidelines, but without any sort of message or notice about why the deletion is happening. A good strategy can be to post a reply stating why the certain type of post is not allowed, and then lock the post to further replies. Then the user sees the reply (likely from a notification), and other users will see the warning as well, which can help prevent repeat behavior. Posts disappearing with no context won’t help anyone do better. I am seeing this most on “tech support” type posts but there are other types as well. Enforcing the guidelines is needed, but if it happens invisibly, it's much less effective.

Looking for Players — this is clearly a popular type of post, and I think there are plenty of good ways to leverage that. Why exactly are those types of posts not allowed in Discussions? I see in the guidelines that you’re trying to send people here for that. That’s definitely not going to work for these users. It’s clearly not even working for desktop users — the page has had one addition in the past year. As I have said in a few other places, systems that may have worked well for the desktop/wiki users can’t be applied here with the same assumptions. You need to think outside the box.

My advice is to create a Discussions category for these posts so that all users can find them easily, or filter them out if that’s not what they are looking for. Or perhaps even try and get them all to post on a single post (e.g. “Looking for players June 2017”) so they’re all there together and getting notifications when someone new comes along. That's a very no-clutter option that might work well, when combined with the category. To reiterate — no one in the app is going to go to the trouble of editing the wiki forum page. Discussions is easy to post in and easy to get notified about replies, it should be the place to go for this type of request. People are coming there for this type of thing — don’t fight the tide, use it to your advantage! If they connect with others and find what they need, they’ll be more likely to come back again for other stuff.

Let me know what you think about implementing these suggestions. In both areas, the volunteers can do most of the heavy lifting. That is part of the plan here, because I know this might seem tedious and repetitive for you and the other admins — just deleting and moving on is much easier and quicker, of course. But it’s this diligence that will create the culture that you want to see, over time. And that’s the plan, to get things to that state. We just need to be in alignment to make sure things are consistent, and to coordinate on the strategy of directing users to content areas for feedback and editing encouragement.

Thanks -BertH (help forum | blog) 02:13, June 13, 2017 (UTC)

Hi Joe, do you have any thoughts on the suggestions I offered? We would like to move forward with a collaborative approach on making this a success for the community, as I have been suggesting. But to do this we need to hear about what you think will work and what you're interested in trying out, etc. It sounded like you were open to exploring some of this. Leading up to the game release in the fall, there's a great opportunity to leverage the interest/buzz and try out some new ideas. If there's a better place to talk about this, let me know. Thanks! -BertH (help forum | blog) 16:22, June 28, 2017 (UTC)

Disco Follow-up[edit source]

Hi Joe,

My name is Nico and work on ComDev's gaming team here at FANDOM. I've seen that you were in contact with Bert in the past and figure that this message might be of interest to you.

Thanks,

A very delayed response...[edit source]

Thanks man! I can't believe I've actually surpassed 30k edits 0_o. I remember when passing 1k felt like I had just completed some kind of Herculean task. Hopefully I get better at quickly responding to messages somewhere in the next 30k edits! Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 08:30, January 7, 2018 (UTC)
