j-nox is correct. anyone can have a custom sig. make a page with your sig. then make a page refering to the first. enter the second page into your preferences pane for signature. it is preferable to have these pages under your user:namespace (such as user:blobort/sig & user:blobort/sig/prefs)   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon.png   Wordpress shovel.png   Boston globe bullhorn.png  20:20, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

Is "plugging" acceptable?

Hello, Dr. F,

Prissybitch, here with a request. I trust your opinion and judgement. I've recently joined a PS3 gaming group/forum that caters to adult gamers looking for folks to coop with. So far I really enjoy the camaraderie of the group. When I first visited here I found that, sadly, there weren't many PS3 users here to converse with. I still love the wiki and visit it often for game reference.

I would like to drop a plug for the group in the Watercooler forum or even the PS3 trading forum. Would this be acceptable under wiki rules and etiquette? I just want to offer other PS3 users a place to find other PS3 users who still play the game and will be playing BL2.

Any advice you could offer in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Prissy:)Prissyb*tch talk 03:10, May 26, 2012 (UTC)

social groups and websites are not subject to the rules for commercial sites. any and all communities and groups for this, or any, game may be endorsed, shamelessly plugged and yes, even pimped. very good question PB ty4askn.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon.png   Wordpress shovel.png   Boston globe bullhorn.png  04:50, May 26, 2012 (UTC) Blogs too. specially blogs. blogs

Fail to categorize images

Hello Dr. Clayton Forrestor, user Torgue here.

I'm new here and I didn't know that I had to categorize the images I uploaded, so I apologize if I caused you any trouble.

Also thank you for blocking me, because otherwise I wouldn't have discovered that all images gotta be categorized.

I can try to find and categorize all the uncategorized images I've uploaded so far to make up for my mistake.

In the future I'll be more careful before editing anything so I won't mess up again.

See you around.

Torgue (talk) 19:24, June 12, 2014 (UTC)

messing up is part of learning. so is communication so please keep an eye on your talk page. i very much doubt you will be blocked again provided you categorize and publish your uploads (if only on your own userpage). there is a link to this wiki's policies in the topnav and IatBR and his greeters are always around to help get you started. its a community so you never have to go it alone.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon.png   Wordpress shovel.png   Boston globe bullhorn.png  20:10, June 12, 2014 (UTC)

the red guns thing (featuring User:Raisins)

Hi. Have read over your work with Red Guns in BL1, and wonder if it is possible to use them in gameplay?Quiddam (talk) 20:37, February 25, 2018 (UTC)

red guns can be constructed in save file editors and used in the first blands game. no one may trade or drop them however comma because (after many patches) these monstrosities are volatile and disappear. some may not even survive spawn in. the real hideous ones w/ stuff like 3 names or 2 magazines definitely will not (YMMV). thank you for asking.

New screenshot questions

Hi, Dr. Forrestor,

I've just fixed specs for Hell Fox Siren mod. Should I also create some variants page with my screenshot or there is some magic that links uploaded picture to related wiki page?

Thank you!

Abcdenis (talk) 20:29, May 5, 2018 (UTC)

please do add a variants page. see other item pages for example(s) of format. Njoy! Dr. FThe Evil Dr. F  •  Boston globe bullhorn.png  •  Wordpress shovel.png   23:57, May 5, 2018 (UTC)


Hi Dr. Clayton Forrestor I was looking at bosses for the pre sequel and found both MINAC Minion and Rex Loader as optional bosses but the minions are reskins of regular enemys and don't drop anything, Rex Loader is just a npc and the player never fights him. I think the minion should be removed from the bosses and added to enemys and that Rex Loader should be removed from the template.

GruffKibbles89 (talk) 12:07, May 7, 2018 (UTC)

I apologize for interfering, sorry.. I think that the Minions can not be the regular enemies in any way, as they appears only in one place and only in a pair with their master, and are only found during the one mission. That is, Minions are unique enemies or, following the terminology of the template, are "optional boss"es. And that the presence of the minion looked more correct in the navbox, he must stand in tandem with the boss: MINAC & his Minions. Unfortunately, Minak himself is not the boss in the Pre-Sequel and so do not make it in the navbox. -- Sega010 (talk) 19:19, May 7, 2018 (UTC).
it is notable that neither minac nor rex are (currently) categorized as bosses. you may, of course, remove them from the template. i must caution you to be prepared to defend removal or any revision, esp this long after the game's release date. if anyone reverses your edit/removal the page will be locked until you and the other party have both made public arguments (on a blog, not my talk page) and people have read them and decided. if you would like to have the discussion occur before the edit(s) are made i suggest starting the blog/discussion and linking it on the admin's talk pages so we can link it on the main page and so on and so on. i am NOT recommending against removing links or against editing a template. i AM stating that if there is objection to the edit you will be asked to defend your reasoning in open forum. that said they are not category:boss so imo do not belong in template. change one or the other. please do not change both, b/c that would hurt my feelings terribly. ty & Njoy!

Moderation help in Discussions

Hi Dr. Clayton Forrestor,

I'm not sure if you're aware, but your wiki has a community app with Discussions that has become quite popular. Discussions has become really active (more than 1000 postings now), thanks to all those mobile users. App users can post really easily from the app and interact with each other, but since the app's scope is limited, they can't edit wiki articles or use talk pages (so far), which is why you've probably not been contacted by any of them before.

As is inevitable with this much activity, there has been some drama and spam in Discussions, and the community there could use a moderator or two. Since there aren't many active admins on this wiki, and no Discussions moderators at all, I'm offering you the help of our Global DMods.

If you'd rather moderate Discussions yourself, possibly with the help of other community members you'd want to promote to mods, let me know! Otherwise we can assign a team of global moderators to the Discussions here on the wiki. They will soon contact you to follow up. You don't need to help them or do anything, but if there is anything they should know about this wiki's guidelines and policies, things you'd like them to pay attention to, they'll be happy to hear your input before they become active on Discussions. They will, of course, not interfere in how you run the rest of the wiki.

Let me know if you have any questions! Mira Laime  (help forum | blog) 23:13, May 8, 2018 (UTC)

no users have, as yet, contacted me about their interest in moderating discussion. until they do and we have discussed their ability to do so i think it would be best if staff and their appointees moderate the discussions part of this wikia. policies are posted under community in the topnav. if you or your globals need anything from me i am available here. thank you for the heads up and good luck w/ the new functionality. Dr. FThe Evil Dr. F  •  Boston globe bullhorn.png  •  Wordpress shovel.png   00:01, May 9, 2018 (UTC)
Hello! I’m Ursuul, one of the GDMs (along with Sayuri) assigned to moderate the Discussions here. We’ll be sure to look over the policies you already have here & set about cleaning up. After we’re done we’ll remain for some time moderating, establishing policies & looking for permanent moderator candidates for when we leave. We’ll be available if you have any questions or requests for how we moderate, see you around!
UrsuulTalkGDMDate10:40 PM Monday, May 14, 2018 (UTC)
Hello, I am Sayuri! I look forward to working with you. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. We'll make sure to keep in touch! SayuriDarling 22:49, May 14, 2018 (UTC)

welcome to the both of you. please feel free to inquire of active users and admins for information pertaining to topics, problematic or otherwise, which present parts of the game and/or lore which is not familiar to you. for myself i very much appreciate you taking on this task. Njoy! Dr. FThe Evil Dr. F  •  Boston globe bullhorn.png  •  Wordpress shovel.png   23:47, May 14, 2018 (UTC)

/d rules

Hello! We are creating /d rules and we just wanted to clarify if expletives are allowed on the wiki? I couldn't find a policy for it. Thanks! SayuriDarling

if i remember what i wrote correctly - this is an adult rated game for violence (and other things) and for that reason there is no proscription on adult or abusive language in user and forum/blog namespace. in article namespace the language must match the language used in the game. discuss is not article namespace so it is open season where language is concerned. that said, if the OP specifically requests plain language or rated pg language i shud like that to be honored and if necessary enforced. Dr. FThe Evil Dr. F  •  Boston globe bullhorn.png  •  Wordpress shovel.png   21:12, May 16, 2018 (UTC)

I had read the policy before I messaged you. I just wanted to make sure that it was alright before I write rules. Thank you for your time. SayuriDarling 22:51, May 16, 2018 (UTC)

Blands Wikia Discord

Hello Dr Clayton Forrester, I am SteakBurger, one of the users of the borderlands wiki app. A while ago some of use were wondering whether the wiki has its own discord server? I (along with several others) proposed having one should there not be one already. I am here to ask, would you be objected to the wiki having one? I have currently got an empty server lying around and have fitted it to be a potential wiki discord server. If you have anything to say on the matter, could you please get back to me whenever you can? Preferably via discord as my computer is on the brink and as a result it may be a while before I see your verdict on this matter(I am getting a new one however, just not yet).

My discord: SteakBurger#4816

SteakBurger (talk) 15:35, June 9, 2018 (UTC)SteakBurger

mr/ms burger. may i call you steak? steak that is a very good and important question however comma Dr. FThe Evil Dr. F  •  Boston globe bullhorn.png  •  Wordpress shovel.png   is not staff and only staff can ok such a thing. i recommend you talk to JoePlay as this user not only started the Blands Wikia but is also staff. However this works out i hope you will msg me back and link me the discord server so i can put it on the feed page and places like that. ty 4 bringing this up.   Dr. F    Chemicalweapon.png   Wordpress shovel.png   Boston globe bullhorn.png  20:09, June 9, 2018 (UTC)

Regarding the discord server, here is the link, as you requested. Sadly I do not know how to reply to the original comment I made, due this having to be done via my phone. This also means I will not get notified so sorry this link has arrived 2 hours after your reply.

For SteakBurger: Follow the instructions listed under the "Enabling the widget" section on this page at Dev Wiki to get the settings ready on the server.
For Dr. F: First, go to MediaWiki:ImportJS and copy/paste dev:DiscordIntegrator/code.js to import the DiscordIntegrator script. To embed the widget on the right rail, follow the instructions under the Sidebar section.
Let me know if you have any trouble. JoePlay FandomStaff.png (talk) 16:26, June 11, 2018 (UTC)

For: Dr Clayton Forrestor. If you don't mind me asking, what is your discord? I feel it would make it much easier for me to message you about the discord server, due to my phone being able to receive notifications 24/7. However, my laptop is now seeming to be more reliable to talk on, so that question may be redundant.

For: JoePlay. I have completed the instructions you have given me, anything else while I am at it?
SteakBurger (talk) 18:19, June 11, 2018 (UTC)SteakBurger

@SteakBurger: Nah. That should be all you need to do on your end. JoePlay FandomStaff.png (talk) 14:19, June 12, 2018 (UTC)

Hey Dr. F! As you can tell by the 30 Days of Borderlands promotion, the Fandom Gaming team is excited for the upcoming, major release in the Borderlands series. I just wanted to assure you that your wiki manager, Tephra, and I are here to help, as needed. I've already asked Tephra to keep an eye on recent changes before and after the release of Borderlands 3 to help watch for spam and vandalism. If you have any questions, or if there is anything specific that you want help with, do not hesitate to reach out to Tephra or myself. Keep up the great work!

new pages help

Hello! Thanks for offering to help. I could use more info on how to add image boxes to pages. For example, I uploaded an image of the Mr Caffiene Shield and I wanted to create the item reward page linked to the mission Rise and Grind . However, I couldn't figure out how to put the Infobox for Shields onto the page. I tried roaming around the help pages but couldn't find anything coherent. Can you please point me to a page that might help me? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, Dameofgames (talk) 00:50, September 21, 2019 (UTC)

go to Mr_Caffeine_Shield (redlinked for now until you make the page) and paste the format from Template:Infobox_shield and you can use your upload for the image. look at other shield pages for the format (which you can leave blank if you place a {{stub}} at the top of the page.

Maliwan Heavy Article

Hello. Earlier, I went to add an article regarding Maliwan Heavies, and noticed the infobox at the bottom has links to Badass Heavies, and a couple different kinds of Heavies. I was wondering if you wanted that article consolidated into one singular article regarding Maliwan Heavies, or if you do indeed want separate entries for each type.

^ yes they all have the same weak spot but attacks are significantly different (slow vs AoE Dot Burn). for now let us go with the rule of 'different name = own article.' Dr. FThe Evil Dr. F  •  Boston globe bullhorn.png  •  Wordpress shovel.png   19:56, October 22, 2019 (UTC)

All right, I will utilize making separate pages for each kind. Thank you for the response.

Walkthrough guide (end)

The current testing phase for the walkthrough teaching aid that was enabled for this wiki will be ending tomorrow and eventually disabled. Depending on how it performed, it may become a standard feature on the United Community Platform. Let me know if you have any feedback on things you felt it did well or poorly within the next 24 hours.

im for keeping it, regardless. Dr. FThe Evil Dr. F  •  Boston globe bullhorn.png  •  Wordpress shovel.png   06:00, October 30, 2019 (UTC)
Unfortunately, you cannot keep the current version. I'm not sure on all of the details, but it has to be disabled.

if (when) it is available in any way, shape or form i would like it available here. Dr. FThe Evil Dr. F  •  Boston globe bullhorn.png  •  Wordpress shovel.png   12:29, October 30, 2019 (UTC)

Wiki improvements

I got a note from one of the Community Managers with a couple suggestions for the wiki. First, your icon for the Fandom apps on the main page is a bit outdated. Secondly, there are several nonportable infoboxes that maybe could be converted.

Midgemong Renaming

So, the page for Midgemong is titled "Midge-Mong", instead of what the enemy is actually called in-game, which is Midgemong. I have a screenshot of it, which I uploaded to Imgur at this link. I already corrected the page for the most part, but I'd like to request renaming the page to a correct title.~Tora (To4oo4) (talk) 18:10, July 3, 2020 (UTC) The challenge in-game is also called "Midgemong Has No Friends", and again uses the spelling "Midgemong" in its description. I'd also recommend renaming the Midge-Mong Has No Friends page to reflect the correct spelling.~Tora (To4oo4) (talk) 19:05, July 3, 2020 (UTC)

i even looked up some old videos of the mission and farming in case it was renamed via patch at some point. it would seem it was just incorrectly named when created and the convention stuck for whatever reason. tyvm.

Moderator Permissions

Hi, is it alright if I can be moderator? I am planning to change/update the Borderlands Wiki font and also change the Borderlands Wiki background.


TheRedKnightMCC (talk) 14:07, August 29, 2020 (UTC)

so that is three topics. firstly, to be a moderator one must draw attention to one's work for the community and cultivate a trust w/ moderators already in place. secondly, moderators do not have the user rights to change the font or the wiki background. to get the background and/or font changed it is not required to become an admin it is only required to convince a loud enough portion of the community that it is a good idea to change the font and/or the background. this conversation can be had on anyone's blog in user namespace (finding out what user namespace is would also be helpful toward moderator and admin status). third, it is a good idea to discuss major changes to the fandom with the active community. it is not required that staff and admins take part in these discussions it is eventually required to notify someone w/ user rights to make major changes.

of course if these discussions have already taken place and i was just not notified please link me the discussions here or on discord. Dr. FThe Evil Dr. F  •  Boston globe bullhorn.png  •  Wordpress shovel.png   19:47, August 29, 2020 (UTC)

Fandom Decisions

Been a while old friend. I need your opinion on something. Fandom chose to merge Mordheim:City of the Damned Fandom site with the Gamepedia site. The Fandom site has information on current mods and past versions of the game while the Gamepedia site does not. Does this sound like the corporate over-ruling its own principles? Or does it sound typical?

Quite bitter about it actually and it makes me think that I have wasted a HUGE amount of time documenting and recording information. Whats your take, if any? Final signature.jpg 01:20, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

I did a Rant. Feel a bit better. Probably add a stub page every day, see how long they leave up the site before they take it down. Final signature.jpg 01:16, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

A "wikia star is born" (whatever they are called now) advised me to put in a request so I did. You can comment on it if you have an opinion. Final signature.jpg 18:54, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Locked pages

Hello from the french Borderlands fandom. I'd like to add interlanguage links to the King Aracobb and Slither pages — but they're still locked (since 2012!). Should i request for editing or will the pages be unlocked? Thanks in advance. Muchos (talk) 23:01, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Marcie Halloway

I was wondering can I create a page for Marcie Halloway? The girl who was a total jerk to Gaige?

I mean even though she's an unseen character she's actually pretty significant.

1. She's at least partially the reason Gaige is even a Vault Hunter. Gaige did have to flee Eden-5 for inadvertently killing her and ended up on Pandora. 2. She had Gaige's Deathtrap design stolen and made into Crime Buster Bots you have to fight in Borderlands 3. 3. She sent assassins after Gaige in the Son of Crawmerax DLC which the latter's Dad promptly defeated. 4. She's had a nasty history with Gaige according to the Ecologs. 5. Gaige recounts the science fair incident where Marcie was killed in Guns, Love and Tentacles.
