Eridian Weapons page move

Hey there. I'm sure you had good intentions while moving this page to Eridian Weapon, but the general wikia policy is to have pages such as this as plural, check any of our Weapons categories/articles if you want to be sure. I reverted it, and feel free to let me know if you have any questions/comments. Thanks! --Aelwrath45 18:43, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Ah, gotcha -- I am currently working on cleaning up Category pages containing content more appropriate for the Main namespace. I'll be sure to stick with pluralized titles in the future :)  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  18:47, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Oh wow sorry, thought it was the category page for Eridian Weapons (confused it with Alien guns. Completed zoned out on that one. --Aelwrath45 00:19, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

== apparently plural is this wiki's style ==:b There is little basis for the above statement. When the pages began to surface they were created randomly with no consideration for plural or singular forms. I tried to raise the subject and got no real response from that, so the trend has actually been to place the categories in a plural form and shift most of the article plurals to singular. -- WarBlade 22:54, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Most of the time the article names are in singular and categories in plural. That's how a wiki is built. --Gourra (talk) 23:24, November 5, 2009 (UTC)
Indeed, that is the "wiki norm" that I am used to dealing with -- categories are pluralized, articles are singular.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  05:09, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
Also, I've noticed a lot of copy/paste moves around here -- please use the Move button whenever possible, as that will retain an article's revision history... You can even move over a redirect page, providing it only has one edit in its history and that it points at the article you are moving. Of course the first time someone performs a copy/paste move, they forever ruin any chance of properly moving the article (that is, unless a sysop comes and cleans it up).  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  05:11, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
That sounds more like something that the public should know, just not the people who read your talk page. --Gourra (talk) 07:13, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. This and several other policy considerations should be laid down somewhere obvious under a heading like "Borderlands Wiki Editing Policies" and should be easier to find than this. -- WarBlade 07:23, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

Let's make a manual of style? [1] --Aelwrath45 15:34, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

Delete, Not redirect.

There is no need to have so many pages floating around with randomly generated prefixes. I see the point in Madjack redirecting to Maliwan Madjack, because it is still the name. Likewise for Unforgiven redirecting to Jakobs unforgiven, but when you start making all the pages with prefixes, it becomes ridiculous. Nobody is going to search for the weapons with the prefix in them. --Zaybertamer 18:28, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

Hi and editing stuff

Hi. I see that you are busy straightening up things. If you want to save yourself some time on the pages that I am adding, feel free to leave me a message with the items you need added. Or a new section to add to the pages I am making and I will gladly add it so you wont have to go back later. Also, I don't mind pointers as I am still relatively new to wiki editing. Thanks.

After watching your RfA thread and giving people time to reply, it seems like most of the comments are supportive of having you as an admin, so I just changed your status to bureaucrat. The only other currently active admin right now is User:Alexandersig, so if he or you become inactive, or if the community feels that 2 active admins aren't enough, feel free to promote other good editors to admin as well. Thanks for the effort you've made and will continue to make to improve the wiki, and congrats on the promotion. If you need any help or have any questions, don't hesitate to drop me a message.

We've got a vandal blanking pages... Unregistered contributor Billdoom 15:59, December 4, 2009 (UTC)


I would like to report a vandal. The user "IX-ElEdZordZ" changed the forum header template, adding something like advertising / requesting crap.

Maybe that wasn't the best idea, but i allready editet the affected articles and removed his text from the forumheader template.

Sorry for any difficulties caused by my actions. --DingoEgret 13:39, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

think i got it figured out...

like i said, its been a while since ive done wiki editing but i think i found a workaround that works--posted a thumbnail with what ive got worked up so far to let you see what my thoughts are as far as adding to the character pages or possibly the main build screen for each character to give people a better idea of the possibilities (im going to be making one for each character for my own benefit regardless if they will be used on the wiki) dfareaper 1933 december 4, 2009 (PST)

Video code

So the code, I would put the video ID right before the </youtube> tag? ()

That code would probably make it alot easier than what I've been doing. p.s. Would videos be better after the "walkthrough" section, or way at the end of the page?

Transclusion and Ref tag

I was trying to cobble together a row template for the weapon example tables, so people would break them less often with weird formatting, and I ran into a snag. When i give parameter 9 (the image filename) to my template and then use it inside an image link inside a <ref> tag, it breaks. Please check it out and offer any advice: Template:Weapon table row --Raisins 16:52, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Oops! Sorry, Dr. Clayton Forrestor -- you must've caught an error from some editing that I should've sandboxed first. Please do use the new weapon table templates, as they will help standardize the format. Also, note the new usage example listed at Template:Weapon table row -- with named parameters.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  11:47, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
thank you. i have in fact been running rampant through sniper rifles with code i borrowed from the equalizer page. seems to be functioning now though. Dr. Clayton Forrestor 11:55, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
please try to use the new "named parameters" format listed in the usage example, though. this also now includes templates to start/end the table. Thanks Dr.CF!  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  12:13, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
may i ask, in your example there is the text "weapon table" in your footnote. is this aftifact or is it intentional? i found a format which is compact and starts and ends the table without the extra text - example on my talk page - is this acceptable? sincerely, Dr. F Dr. Clayton Forrestor 13:08, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
(back from afk) Arbitrary naming choice, but intentional design decision. I used a feature of the references tag that allows you to group similar items -- I just happened to call the group "weapon table" as an arbitrary choice. I do want to continue to use a references group, but I do not care what it is called -- "weapon table" was just the default text I placed while adding this feature. I'm going to go rename it to "Weapon" instead, for a shorter display format.
The reason I would prefer to use grouped references is so that if these someday should move back into the article space, they wouldn't disrupt any "normal" references in the article (I think).  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  13:16, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

i think i _finally_ see the light. the redundancy of the column title facilitates ease of use, n'est-ce pas? thank you for your time and kind attention. Dr. Clayton Forrestor 13:50, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Editing for wiki noobs like me...

Hi LobStoR I'm new to all this wiki editing jazz and was wondering if you could give me a few tips? Namely, how do I make a clickable link that doesn't say the actual address. For Example on my user page a link that says my volcano model but takes someone to the volcano page when clicked. Also how do I insert images and add those "user-boxes" like "this user owns a PS3" at the moment all that info is just on my user page in boring plain old text. Thanks for your help. DaleGK 15:13, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

When you have the editor up, one way to do it is to click "Source" then place your link into double square brackets, ie: [[Volcano]], which will produce a link like this: Volcano. For further tips about editing in Source mode, check out the Wikipedia Editing FAQ, and for help editing with the Rich Text Editor, see the Wikia rich text editor help page.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  16:05, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
Edit: To get started on your user page, you can copy/paste the code sample from Userbox gallery. As for images, etc, I highly recommend finding something that you like, and copy/pasting it (in Source mode).  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  16:15, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

If the map was intended to display treasure chest locations, then all you need to do is:
  1. Navigate to the File: page
  2. Scroll down just past the revision history
  3. Click the link that says "Upload a new version of this file"
Then don't forget to provide a very brief summary of what was updated (ie "updated with additional chest locations" etc). Let me know if I can help any further.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  15:11, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Sometimes graphics can turn into some very large filesizes, so for example a 1 megabyte file with 128kbit/sec upload speed will take a little over 60 seconds to upload. If it's not giving you any specific errors (or even just sending you to a blank page), then it probably is uploading.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  15:35, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

fallout wiki

I've posted something similar to this on a couple admins pages on fallout wiki, I'm trying to figure out how to adapt the thing on here where if someone doesn't sign there posts either you or the system goes in and leaves a comment like the preceding comment was unsigned by (insert user here) id like info on a couple things including is it a coding thing and therefore automatic? or is it a thing that as a admin you can do where you type in etc and it pops up? i don't care about quick response's so take your time on that part.Toolazytomakeaaccount 18:54, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Anyone can do it, by manually using Template:Unsigned as {{unsigned|<username>|<date and time (UTC)>}} to mark a comment as unsigned... you can find the exact date and time of the edit in the Revision history. Out on Wikipedia, there is a bot that runs around and signs unsigned comments, but this is a small wiki, so we probably won't have anything like that in the immediately foreseeable future.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  20:08, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the greet

I've used the wiki to great effect on my getting started with the game. I was completely bewildered on builds initially (and arguably maybe still am) and there were a couple points where I was lost in the game in spite of the relative simplicity and straightforwardness of the design. Weapons, especially, are still a great topic of confusion for me. So, uh, thanks for existing!

However, there is one major topic I'm wondering about the lack of on the wiki -- math and theorycraft, (or whatever you want to call it.) Formulas. Explanations. Details on what goes on inside the game about stuff. I realize there's math stuff, and then there's math stuff. I'm only looking for the basics, like how elemental multipliers affect damage. (I've got that one down, I think.) I realize there's a ton of different things going on internally, and I'm not asking for a complete explanation of recoil across every weapon type (and body type) and to what degree +X% recoil reduction improves upon that. Surely the basics are something that has been worked on by somebody. But there's no pages?

If not, I don't know what kind of time I have to volunteer, but I am a math major and have some experience working on wikis. (Albeit, the wiki I was on was almost exclusively edited by me, so I'm not familiar with working with others. I hope posting this way is proper etiquette.) I guess I could volunteer to collect info on the matter....I just seem like a poor choice considering I bought the game after Christmas and I'm not playing on the PC version.

Azuarc 01:04, January 7, 2010 (UTC)

That would be terrific! I have contributed a couple of formulas on a few articles (see the bottom row of Weapon proficiency as an example), but I would love to see one central article titled Formula (or similar) as a compilation of different formulas from the whole range of gameplay. Feel free to use the Forums and talk pages to try to scoop for some information, as I am pretty sure there are others who would be interested in this, too.
Also, we do have LaTeX here, if you're familiar with using <math> tags on wikis. Cheers,  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  11:26, January 7, 2010 (UTC)
Check out Elemental Damage. I made a significant addition to that page. Maybe I should have just rewritten it, but it was lacking. While I can't promise I'll continue making edits, that's at least some idea of what I was looking for. I'm glad someone on the forums pointed me to the page I drew the information from, which certainly seemed credible. LMK if there's any problems with the way I handled that.

Achievements pages

They're in a real state. I wouldn't mind formatting them all, but I'm not sure on what format you/the wiki wants. Could you show me a page / format that you want all the achievement pages to follow, and I'll try and do my best to fix some pages. --TCoZ 13:12, January 7, 2010 (UTC)

I am not too particular, really, as many of them don't require much more than one sentence... as long as they all have Template:Infobox achievement, it should be fine.

Hmm, can i just make the Borderlands Overhaul Modification page a redirect to the wikia? Or at least, can You (If you're an administrator) delete it? Nelo Angelo 97 18:59, January 7, 2010 (UTC)

You've locked the Overhaul forum? Thank god. Nelo Angelo 97 17:52, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

got tired of people insulting you and your so called "mod" eh? anyway thanks from me for also locking it down, i would've preferred deleting, who reversed the deleting anyway?Toolazytomakeaaccount 19:35, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

I restored the revision history, because there is no need to erase history like it didn't happen. The thread is closed.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  19:43, January 8, 2010 (UTC)


I have a question. When I see another users post their signature is highlighted in Yellow. When i put my signature it is just in white. Is this the same with everyone? Or do i have to assign the link manually.

Thanks.--ADHD-Panda 22:01, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

You can update your signature under your preferences (must be logged in). To link to your profile, the wiki code would be [[User:ADHD-Panda|ADHD-Panda]] (note the User: in front). Perhaps sometime I'll write a short tutorial on how to transclude a signature, allowing you to retroactively update it later (similar to my sig).

from xJdKxZomBiE about the stryker shotty...

hey man im definently interested since ur the only one who responded. unfortunately everytime i try to enter your gamertag it wont let me add the underscore after sentinal and if i try other possibilities of your gt it says user does not exist. i have tried both a ms controller keypad, controller itself, even my desktop keyboard. its being weird. so perhaps you could just send me a message or f-r on xbox live. im not sure from memory but the last time i checked my bloody unforgiven the dmdg was over 800 and its a long bore. i have a crapload of other things too if ur interested. —Preceding unsigned comment added by XJdKxZomBiE (talkcontribs) 17:52, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

If you are referring to this edit of Forum:360 wanted strong jakobs striker shotgun, then you're looking for User: (talk | contribs). All I changed was the title of the thread, which was very long. Good luck!  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  10:58, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

Borderlands Fanon Wiki

I wasn't sure I needed some special permission to post news that the Borderlands Fanon Wiki is open to any who wish to write about Pandora . . . I'm rambling. Anyway!

My tribulation is over it being an interwiki link, and that may not be okay . . . ?

Link to main page: [[3]]

Anyway, its open for people to post fanon, and it should qualify for BorderLands Wiki News. That Damn Sniper 00:34, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Sure, feel free to add it to the news feed... everyone is welcome to add news, worst case scenario is someone else might remove it. You can make interwiki links to other Wikia wikis like this:

Boom Stick

Comparing 2 Boom Sticks

You left a message on my talk page. I have a question. Look at this. I can't decide wether to sell one. HELP ME! P.S. You have a PS3? My PSN ID:MegaManX10 MegaManX10 16:47, January 18, 2010 (UTC) MegaManX10

Sell the left one (lv28)... unless you're hanging onto it for a friend or an alt. It has inferior damage compared to the lv47 boomstick (on the right). Remember that all the bonuses listed in the bottom (ie +damage) are already included in the stats up top.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  03:09, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

Weapon examples - ref. pictures.

Hi! Thanks for the welcome.

Might seem a bit of silly question, but I've got a few decent weapons I'd like to upload screenshots for on their respective weapon Talk pages. I've got the tables worked out, but the pictures seem to work with coded references instead of simply uploading a picture and leaving it at that. :D

A reference to a quick guide on how this is done properly would be welcome, cause I can't seem to find exactly what I'm looking for under the Help pages. :)

Thanks in advance for your time!Agilaz89 11:51, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

Edit: nevermind, figured it out. :D Agilaz89 11:58, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

Atlas Chimera Talk Page

Hello !

I wanted to upload the pictures of 2 Atlas Chimera's I found, but when I was on the Atlas Chimera talk page, it just showed "Templates" when I tried to edit, and not the pictures.

Can you put the pictures there for me, or explain me how to do it ?

These are the 2 pictures of the Chimera's:

Thanks in advance . :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Broken*Days (talkcontribs) 06:08, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

DLC 3 = The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

Since this DLC is now named and has more information, could you add it to the sidebar under "Add-on Content"? Thanks! -- Claptrap 01:48, January 29, 2010 (UTC)

Candidates for Banning

(or should this be a forum?)including vandals

could we put a stop to this individgible Special:Contributions/ ChemicalweaponDr. F

On a similar note, please review Special:Contributions/ in the interests of keeping the sewage levels slightly lower. Thanks. -- WarBlade 08:57, January 31, 2010 (UTC)

Can sysops ban? Because I'm going to start reporting vandals, starting with Special:Contributions/ The Flying Fenrakk 17:40, January 31, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, sysops can temporarily or permanently ban. I monitor the RecentChanges with a feedreader, so anytime an Edit Summary says "undo" or "revert" (not case sensitive) I look into it. See Special:Log/block -- note how the IP Fenrakk reported was already blocked prior to the report here, thanks to "undo"/"revert" in an Edit Summary notifying me. The other problem is response time... I login about once every 24 hours, so maybe it's time we look for another sysop on this wiki, to improve that response time.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  08:51, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
When you say it looks for "revert", does that include "rv vandalism"? -- ClaptrapTorgueSig Claptrap icon Jakobscoveclaptrapz 11:35, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, thanks Claptrap -- I just now updated my filter to add those, so any partial match of the following will work: undo,revert,rv,vandal.  LobStoR name  talk  contribs  17:44, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
That's cool. Does it automatically ban them, or do you have to do that when you log in? The Flying Fenrakk 12:45, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

the Ninth New Haven weapons crate


I made a correction to the number of crates located in New Haven. There IS a ninth crate, but its the furthest from the cluster of crates we're already familiar with.
