Talk Page

Well, that would just take up more server space by adding another page. I think I'm going to shave off some of the comments and make the page smaller, but I don't think I need to create an archive for them. Thanks for the suggestion though. - Gunmaster45

Aussie Gun Laws

It's a shame that the gun laws down under are so damned strict. It must be hard for a gun nut to live over there-S&Wshooter

Yeah, indeed. :( --MattyDienhoff 09:49, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Operation Flashpoint

Operation Flashpoint has to be the best video game page here. Good work with the screenshots.--SB2296 16:27, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

The MP5SD3 is actually a MP5SD-N1 which is noted by its Navy trigger group.--SB2296 16:41, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
As you can see the difference between a SEF trigger group and a Navy trigger group is the presence of bullet pictograms(as seen in MP5A4/A5) on the latter one, which IS the case in OFP.--SB2296 09:36, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Zombies Wiki

Are you the same user on the Zombies Wiki? The reason why I asked is because the MattyDeinhoff on the Zombies Wiki uploaded firearm pictures from Imfdb and those pictures are only authorized for Imfdb according to MoviePropMaster2008. - Kenny99 14:21, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, that's me. I was at the time under the impression that images uploaded to wikis were in the public domain (as they often are in Wikimedia commons). This is a completely different website, I know, but I didn't put very much thought into it at the time, beyond providing credit. That's stupid and is no excuse, I know, but that's what I was thinking at the time. I'll propose them for deletion on copyright grounds. I apologize for using them without permission, it was foolish and rude. :( --MattyDienhoff 19:06, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
Wow. Thank you Kenny99 for watching my back.  :) Thank you MattyDienhoff for being such a gentleman and a man of honor :) MoviePropMaster2008 05:01, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory

Since that it's just an expansion pack, go ahead and add the new weapons of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. - Kenny99 05:02, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Categorize your images, please

Please, don't forget to put [[Category:Screenshot]] (or simply {{SS}} template) on every screenshot that you upload, and {{PCA}} on posters and covers. Greg-Z (talk) 02:16, 6 January 2014 (EST)

Sorry about that, I should've examined the rules more closely. Thanks for setting me straight! --MattyDienhoff (talk) 02:25, 6 January 2014 (EST)

State of Decay

You were actually correct the first time regarding level 2 headings. I'd roll it back, but you added a lot of stuff along with the formatting changes. --Funkychinaman (talk) 21:04, 6 January 2014 (EST)

Technically yes, since going from level one to two is the logical progression, I'm just trying it this way for appearance reasons. Due to the sheer number of entries, I think it looks better without all the extra dividing lines that were present when I used level two headings. The table of contents still works as intended, is there another reason it shouldn't be done this way?
By the way, I have a little trick for making lots of little formatting changes quickly, I copy and paste the article text into Notepad, search for the item I want to change (like, say: "=="), and use Replace All to insert the new item in its place (in this case, "==="). So don't worry about that, I'm willing to change it back if you really think I should. --MattyDienhoff (talk) 01:29, 7 January 2014 (EST)
That IS the established standard as defined in the IMFDB Style Guide. --Funkychinaman (talk) 01:31, 7 January 2014 (EST)
I see! Thanks for directing me to that, it'll be very helpful. I was honestly not aware there was a style guide, I can't find any mention of it in the rules, so I was using other articles (this one in particular, which uses level 3 headers) for reference on style and layout. I'll change back to level 2 headers, I'm sure it'll look better once I've filled them all out with images, anyway. --MattyDienhoff (talk) 01:41, 7 January 2014 (EST)
Although there was already an unofficial standard amongst the admins here, the Style Guide was our attempt to codify them all in one spot. With the Style Guide in place, we can now point new users toward it as a framework of how a complete page is supposed to look. I'm sure you will still find things like level 3 headings and links in subheadings amongst the older pages that existed prior to the Style Guide coming into effect. --Funkychinaman (talk) 02:40, 7 January 2014 (EST)

State of Decay

I noefforted it when I realized it was just a list with no link or images and hadn't been worked on in two months. Even if you're still getting the screenshots, you can still write some descriptions and put up some weapon images. (BTW, all pages are supposed to be original. Copy and pasting from other resources is frowned upon.) --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:59, 25 March 2014 (EDT)

Permission to use your screenshots on the SoD wiki

Hello, I'm a JeremyCarl from the SoD wiki. Great work on the page. You dropped a message on my talk page saying I was welcome to use the images here, but I still think I should ask again. And I'm really interested in knowing how you took clean screenshots of the firearms. Did it involve using mods?

Hi again! I didn't actually capture the isolated shots myself, Undead Labs' weapon modeler Brant Fitzgerald kindly offered to provide those for the article, so I guess the answer is "dev powers". :D
In any case, Brant was very open and helpful about the whole thing, and I'm certain he won't mind if you utilize these images on the wiki too, so the offer stands, feel free! --MattyDienhoff (talk) 00:44, 12 June 2014 (EDT)
