Hi, welcome to House of the Dead Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the List of Zombies page.
THANK YOU Edit
THANK YOU ABOUT THAT MESSAGE I AM WAS GUILTY I DO THAT BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE A WIKI FOR FANS IF WANT I WILL CALL MY FRIEND TO MAKE WIKI FOR HOTD 5
Re:HotD 5 pagesEdit
Thanks for the heads up. I deleted all of the images and pages that were related to Ryan's HotD 5. I had a problem with fan-made work on this wiki when I first got here.
I noticed that you tried moving a couple of his pages to the names "page deleted", but that just renames the pages and does not remove them. In the future just send me another message and I will actually delete them from our database. Thanks again for your help, I probably would not have stopped by here if you did not send me that message. :) --Oranejo 18:26, September 3, 2011 (UTC)
thank for delete my page now i am will call my friend to make a fan wiki
I apologize for not returning a message sooner..Edit
I haven't been following updates to any of the Wikias I've worked on for a while, so initially I didn't know much about what was going on. I must say that my curiousity was piqued when the talk page on my bio was being messed with on here, unlike other wikis I've done more on.
Either way, thank you for trying to clear up whatever's been going on (even though it's really not that hard to call BS on the whole HotD5 thing, as much as I wish it were real). I find it ridiculous that someone would go so far as to make a separate wiki and change others' posts just to support his thing. How long has Deepak been doing this, though?
That's a little sad...Edit
I can see how the lack of admin activity has become a problem if he's been doing this for that long. I just find it funny that he's doing it all and yet not providing any proof that it's real. (Especially if you're going to list voice actors for characters. I'll be damned if that flies past me without proof, since that's like the one thing that's both easy and hard to confirm.)
On becoming an admin, I know I haven't been terribly active on here (I've been here for what, two years? I haven't made any edits for a whole year until today ;_;)), so I don't really know of anyone that's still active except for you (and the few that have been active from what I can see on "recent activity"), so in that whole thing, I support you because you seem like you have your priorities in check when it comes to this wiki. (Because god knows this wiki needs it.)
I've looked through quite a bit of it already.Edit
You've been active long enough that you know more about the wiki than I do, and from what I've seen you've tried to warn/ask admins when they were active about something wrong before acting on it, and you have also given fair warning to others before changing something or asking them provide proof for unverified information regarding games and characters and whatnot. I'll voice my support on there when I get back from running errands.
Request to be an AdminEdit
Hey Dean, long time no see. Sorry I abandoned this place but real life kind of took over from me doing any wiki editing anymore. I actually logged into an old wiki I use to go to today just out of randomness and I saw an unread talk message notification for this wiki which brought me here. Anyway, down to business, I have fulfilled your request to be an admin here at this wiki. You more than deserve it. Oranejo (talk) 19:53, December 26, 2013 (UTC)
how do i delete this image? Edit
hey admin, how do you delete an image you recently added? As a fan of the game, I had created a 3d version of Hermit, but accidentally I've posted it twice, you see......
Hey Dean, delete this page. It's just some random thing that popped up in the wiki:
Issues with the wikiEdit
Dean, the wiki is a mess.
Issue 1: Lack of important images with a overflow of unimportant imagesEdit
Look at this image:
(Deleted image, no longer needed --multibrawlr)
Look at this image, look at it hard.
Is it needed? Nope!
Is it important to the series? Nope!
We have many images that aren't needed or important.
What we don't have however, is important images like when Daniel Curien turns into a zombie in the bad ending of HOTD3. (Which, I have to admit. Scared the livid shits outta me when he turned so suddenly.)
Here's a video of all the HOTD3 endings (The Zombie Daniel one is the second one)
Issue 2: Grammar Problems, Spacing Errors EtcEdit
As I scan through many of the pages, I tend to notice small things that don't make the page perfect just yet.
Take for example:
G , wasn't eating the hamburger.
There hats were taken.
Like I said, Grammar and Spacing issues are getting annoying.
Issue 3: "Oh no, dead end!" Edit
Often, I come across pages which don't have any links.
Most of the zombies character's pages don't have any links. So it's just dead ends everywhere.
Issue 4: Lack talk pages/Guidelines/Rules PagesEdit
This is a SERIOUS issue, no rules page means nobody know's their limit.
Simple, create a page where each topic is a page (Pageception)
So people can go to whichever topic about a character like G they want to!
Look at the Call of Duty wiki guidelines, that will help!
It's a rules page, put the rules down with the punishment for breaking these rules.
Anyway, hope this gives you a good view of the current state of the wiki. So...
Get going, make them important pages like the rules/guidelines!
So was the guy who made HOTD 5 pages and references in other characters Bios just some random guy?
I am.not exaggerating these edits at all. Last month me and a user had to delete most of the info on the Magician page because the person who vandalized it (I am still searching their username through the history) deleted all the info and wrote in inappropriate humor and facts that were not true about tue Magician at all. It took me a while to write the whole page! Just recently an edited picture of the Magician was posted up.
I am.not exaggerating any of this. I wish I had taken screenshots for proof.
Hey Dean, my name is DarryLazakar. I've joined this wiki since this January. Since House of the Dead: Scarlet Dawn is coming this September and more fans have come to the wiki, I think It's time for the wiki to get abit of a new look. Here are some of my suggestions to make this wiki even better:
1. Replace the HotD wiki logo with the updated Scarlet Dawn version of the logo. The current logo sometimes cannot be seen due to the red background of the wiki, so I suggest to remove it and upgrade it with a new one.
2. Fix the "List of Zombies" section. Honestly, It's a mess. I'm no HTML master so I suggest you bring somebody to clean it up.
3. Remove unnecessary articles, categories and pictures. There is alot of pictures unrelated to HotD, there's also alot of duplicate articles and unused/unnecessary categories in every article. I suggest to fix this up.
I hope these suggestions can be considered (since you're the administrator) and hopefully make the wiki better. Me and many others will continue to keep the wiki alive and provide new informations as well. I hope you're considering these suggestions. Thank you.
About: Your ReplyEdit
Hey Dean, thanks for the reply
I would love to be an administrator. There's so much things I want to do to improve the wiki even more.
However, I just joined Wikia this January so there are some things that I still don't understand Additionally, I'm no a expert in HTML coding so there's going to be a problem or two.
So for now, I'd say that I will not take the admin role for now, because like I said, I feel like I'm not eligible yet. I'm currently still learning the ins and outs of Wikia. More importantly, with me recently just started my first semester in University, I'm afraid that I can't do my work properly.
When the time is right, I will accept the duty as the admin. I'll tell you when I feel that I'm ready to take such task.
Uhh, you could wait that long right? Hahahaha
Vandalism by User 188.8.131.52Edit
User 184.108.40.206 recently created zombie pages with random and/or vulgar sentences (including a racial slur on the "Aztec" page: "Fuck back to mexico you wetback mong").
I cleaned up those edits and left a message on the user's talk page, but I wanted to make you aware of it too.
About: Your offerEdit
Hey Dean, it's Darryl again.
So hey, I've been thinking about your offer for a while now. I did say to you back then that I would refuse the role of the administrator due to personal reasons.
Well now that I had enough time and confidence to maintain the wiki, I'm thinking to accept your offer.
May I wonder, is the offer still available? If so, I would love to take control as the administrator. I see that the wikia needs cleanups, improvements and many more, and I have plenty of ideas to make it happen.
I know you're probably busy in real life, but I hope you'll reading this.
Endorsing DarryLazakar for wiki adminEdit
I believe DarryLazakar should be the wiki admin.
He's passionate about the franchise and has made nothing but positive contributions here.
I hope you read this, and I hope we can sort this admin thing out. We need someone in charge who has time to actively support the wiki, and I think DarryLazakar is that person.
