Thanks for joining our game. Smudger13 15:21, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Not a problem. KonigCCX 17:04, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Hey you Edit

Not to brag or anything, but one way, or another, I will surpass your $200 million and I'll beat your record someday at the Showtime in BP. JMBZ-12 17:16, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

My friend got 91 Billion, so beat that Spoil-t 00:13, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Massive vehicle edits Edit

Could you add {{Image needed}} to the pages you just edited? The junkyard images are just placeholders until better ones are added. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 21:36, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Done, but of course I'm stupid enough not to log in. /facepalm KonigCCX 00:36, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Hey Edit

Yea I'm still figuring out how to work this lol. I'm guessing you saw the page on criterion? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Glesga Maestro (talkcontribs)

Nice Photos!Edit

Where did you find those neat pictures of the Dust Storm (e.g. DustStormsunset etc.) that you recently put on the Dust Storm page? They're awesome!--Pobsta 14:00, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

BSI Edit

What do you think of this district infobox for Big Surf Island (Location), [1] Ignore the stupid place of the picture on the left. Smudger13talk 16:05, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Seems pretty nice to me. The image in the infobox is a good placeholder until we find something much nicer in the future. KonigCCX 16:08, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Shall I Upload? The only thing is all the unknowns every where. Makes it look...boring Smudger13talk 16:12, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Sure. The change can always be undone if something isn't quite right. KonigCCX 16:15, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I already see a problem with the infobox. The Mega Jumps and Billboards both are not showing up. I have no idea how to correct it either. KonigCCX 16:50, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

It was working...Smudger13talk 16:53, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Where did you get the info about junkyards etc? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Smudger13 (talkcontribs)

Here. KonigCCX 17:00, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

I found the problem with the infobox.

  1. The template is for superjump, not megajump, so for the time being, Super Jump it is.
  2. The template is broken, therefore doesn't show billboards. See here

Smudger13talk 17:05, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Right. :P I found what the problem was, I just didn't know what needed to be done to fix it. KonigCCX 17:08, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Whoops. Deleted wrong info. Could you add the junkyards etc back in info box, soz, cheers Smudger13talk 17:10, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Made a new info box, hope it works. Smudger13talk 17:21, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Lol, i failed Smudger13talk 17:32, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

It's not a problem, I'm sure Ex or Rappy will know how to fix the rest of the infobox. KonigCCX 17:33, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Is there anything they cant do. Ive messaged Ex, and he'll probably talk to Rappy. Smudger13talk 17:37, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Fixed, and fixed. Megajumps, superjumps and billboards all work. (Good job on noticing the billboards, the code looked right for it, but wasn't) —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 00:36, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Massive Category EditsEdit

I went pretty crazy with the file category edits, hopefully it isn't too troubling. I might have continued, but after my last edit I checked the next page of files and realized just how massive it was and quit. I'm sure I categorized all of the vehicle images correctly, but if anyone finds an incorrect edit, you know what to do. KonigCCX 07:28, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

I think what we need to do is when someone is uploading a file, somewhere it needs to say they need to categorize it once it's been uploaded. Or even better, have a section on the upload page where people can categorize it at the same time. Babadingldoo 14:49, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
I agree with this, and I will look into how to add that feature as well as other templates to that drop down list. (IE... selecting vehicle image from a drop down list automatically adds Category:Vehicle images to the image uploaded) —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 00:38, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Members to check outEdit

Babadingldoo - huuuuge noob :P lmao XD And smudger joined after me so :P Babadingldoo 16:47, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

But I joined the clan first :p Smudger13talk 16:50, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
BTW Konig, Nice user page. Also, Is it me, or this talk, but my text comes out grey if I text and post normally Smudger13talk 16:54, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
idk what you're talkin about I joined the clan the same day I joined the wiki. Babadingldoo 16:56, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Proof Smudger13talk 17:01, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
Oh wait, you joined the wiki and the clan before me. nvm... ^_^' Babadingldoo 17:11, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, it doesn't really have anything to do with being new, I'm just messing with Babadingldoo. :P And thanks for the compliment Smudge. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  17:13, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

No probs. Sorry that I left our freeburn this morning, I had to go to school :( Smudger13talk 17:22, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

I was wondering why you skipped out so quickly, but that's no problem either. I'm actually online right now if you need 2 player challenges or want to host for x-player challenges. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  17:24, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Sure, Babadingldoo wanna join us on PSN? Smudger13talk 17:29, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

PSN: Smudger_13 (Smudger13talk 17:39, 2 June 2009 (UTC))
I tried to look for your name in the lobby and it wasn't there, then I sent you a friend request. Where are you? Babadingldoo 17:56, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Guess what? You joined paradise city on the same day as my birthday! :O We must be soul brothers. ;) Babadingldoo 14:51, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

<_< Do not want. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  20:46, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

BigSurf Images Edit

Where did you get the extra images from Criterion of the new vehicles? They look like they are from the news section, but my browser is only showing 4 images! Enlighten me, Smudger13talk 17:40, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, other burnout members already got a hold of them before I did, but this is basically how it's done.

http://eu.llnet.burnout.cdn.ea.com/u/f/WebContent/images/CNN/DLC_Big_Surf_Island/Governor/Island_Governor_02.png

This is the URL for the first public Olympus Governor image on Criterion's website. It's really by chance, but if you happen to type.. say Island_Governor_03.png at the end of it, you might get lucky and an unreleased image just might appear. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  17:46, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Boost Pages Edit

Do you want me to add cop cars to one of the pages? Smudger13talk 19:38, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Sure, it's all up to you. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  19:40, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Allright, as I don't like them, Ill do the aggro cop cars. Only if you want me to help out though. Smudger13talk 19:44, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

I have no problem with extra help, thanks for offering too. :D KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  19:46, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

I like what you have done to the manufacture pages. Unfortunately, I'm not so keen on the Locked boost, sorry Smudger13talk 20:49, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Assistant Edit

You're nominated to be an assistant, and voting starts tomorrow. Why don't you make a campaign template? "Hi I'm Konig. Vote for me blah blah. Cheers" nicely rounded off in a black outline box...Anyways Ill vote for ya Smudger13talk  17:18, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

I'd definitely appreciate being an assistant, but I'm far too lazy to do what you're suggesting. :P KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  23:49, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

lol Smudger13talk  09:15, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Top Speeds Edit

Since the Paradise vehicle top speeds are being merged with the infoboxes, I was wondering if we could put the files that were used into action on the manufacturer pages. I also thought that if I do make these changes, the manufacturers should disappear from each vehicle link since Hunter is the main article in the first place.

Example

PCPD VehiclesEdit

Thoughts? KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  02:33, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Yeah I have one. Criterion Games are very lazy into not adding a speedometer to determine how fast you are going. It's so easy to add this feature! JMBZ-12 17:06, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

They didn't want to put a speedometer, defeats purpose of the game Smudger13talk  17:21, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

"Defeats the purpose of the game." That doesn't make any sense. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  17:51, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

How does a speedometer defeat the purpose of the game when the game is about speed & every Burnout game (besides Paradise) had a speedometer. I want to know the exact speed I'm going when I smack a bus. Spoil-t 18:03, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

I was thinking if the main HUD we used in Paradise is too crowded, they could clear out everything from the Bumper Cam HUD & add a speedometer there. Not too many people use this camera (that's the point really), but at least we would be able to switch to it if we wished to see our speed & acceleration. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  18:08, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Online 18th June Edit

Come online and own all my mate's mates at stunt run Smudger13talk  18:20, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Lol, it figures I lose my connection while trying to enter the room. :\ KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  18:31, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Titles Edit

Just a tidbit of info... if the title for the infobox is the same as the page name, you can remove the title = altogether. If title is missing, it defaults to {{PAGENAME}}. I am not quite sure why everyone even adds the title. Maybe I should just remove that option altogether. Moving the page would automatically update the infobox if title wasn't there. *shrug* —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 19:34, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Mic Edit

Do you use a mic when freeburning? I forgot. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 01:58, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
I usually don't, but I could start using it more if it is necessary for hosting clan meetings. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  02:03, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, using a mic when hosting is preferable, if not necessary. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 02:11, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Car gestures are good enough for me. :D Spoil-t 02:17, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Creating text chatrooms is also a good idea for everyone to be able to comunicate with each other. Babadingldoo 02:34, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Portal:Clan/Clan Colors Edit

Thank you, that bugged the hell out of me, but I didn't feel like fixing it at the time. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 03:25, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
No worries, I just thought that the symbols for vehicles were positioned incorrectly and fixed it. I also felt that they needed to stand out more, hopefully the color I chose is decent enough for viewers. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  04:12, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, fine with me. I was debating on putting them before the car though, but it looks good. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 04:21, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
I actually tried that out first, but I didn't like how it lined up with the Paradise Cars. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  04:24, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Assistant Edit

Thanks for taking part in the RfA. After a while of voting, you have been elected as our new site assistant. So to keep it sweet and short: thanks, and i hope you carry on being a great asset to our site.

Thanks, TH3_P4RK5T3R T4LK_P4G3 F0UND37'5_8L0G C0NTR1BUT10N5 Burnopedia Admin 09:43, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Here's an upgraded license to add to your User page: File:Assistant License.png Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 02:17, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

monaco.css Edit

You can copy the sites monoco.css over to your space if you want, but you won't see any changes until you change something with it. IE... if you change a color for something in the site in your monoco.css, it will override the settings Ex and I have put into place. Basically, you could make Burnopedia look how YOU want it to, and not how WE want it to. Ex and I could both help you if you wish to change things. 90% of what is in the .css is color and image changes, with a little fine tuning of margins and positions here and there. My monoco.css has a few changes from the sites .css... some of which I will be changing shortly. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 08:32, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

That's alright, I was just testing it out. They way you view the Wiki is pretty nice, but I'm very comfortable with the original view. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  08:34, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Which original view? —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 08:36, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
I've never really played with the skins before, so I guess I've always had the Admin override selected. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  08:41, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I think that's the default in preferences. My .css isn't much different from the sites... I think some small side-bar menu tweaks, and image or two, and color changes. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 08:43, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Opinion Edit

Which do you prefer? ... P.S. I stole your font styling for my sig too =) —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 19:08, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

I think the orange clashes too much with the links at the bottom, and I still don't like the digits for the infobox. (maybe if we got a hold of green numbers to go with the boost type) And yes, I noticed your new signature, it's pretty sweet. I thought about making mine that small at first, but I wasn't sure if it would be accepted. You have to admit that it's harder to read. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  19:17, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess it is a little. I was more looking for your opinion on the bottom. Ex likes the orange, I like the blue. I can make some digit numbers with different colors, but I don't know if there is a replace function in wiki markup. It may not even be an easy thing to implement. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 19:33, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Platinum WTR Pics Edit

Where'd you get 'em? Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 00:31, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

I decided to look through some ooold Criterion news archives and I found them. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  00:36, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Cool. Find anything else? Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 00:39, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Nothing that could have been added to the other articles. =\ KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  00:44, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Actually scratch that, there are a few more images that I will upload later on. In the meantime, I left a question for you on your talk page. (those aren't the images I'm talking about btw) KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  01:20, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Colors Edit

Your colors are back... somehow I left them out with the last edit. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 04:35, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Image Categories Edit

I usually forget too, but you can categorize vehicle images when you upload them using the description box. This saves an edit later down the road to categorize them. For now, please use only Category:Burnout Paradise vehicle images or Category:Big Surf Island vehicle images as these two are sub-categories of Category:Vehicle images. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 04:14, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

These categories need a huge re-work. A lot of these files had 3-4 categories on them. Ideally, you'd want one category (although that can't always be done) being a category of another. (IE. Category:Burnout Revenge vehicle images being a sub-category of Category:Vehicle images which is a sub-cat of Category:Images) I don't have time to deal with all these now, but they are on my list of things to do. I really need to start something similar to the P12 Community Challenge and do what other sites have set up, and make a Project page outlining projects that need to be done around the wiki. These categories are not something a bot can simply do as they need to be sorted correctly. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 04:27, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
When I originally made the mass edits to vehicle images, I thought about the exact type of sub-category you mentioned, but I kind of left the matter alone. I plan on another mass edit sometime soon, but I'm not going to rush it. (also, I always thought the more categories the better, but I guess I was wrong) KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  04:34, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, if they belong to all the categories, yes. But you don't have to have a vehicle image labeled as Category:Burnout Paradise vehicles / Category:Vehicle images / Category:Big Surf Island vehicles / Category:Big Surf Island vehicle images... because obviously a BSI vehicle is a Paradise vehicle... and, images shouldn't be labeled as vehicles (that's used to vehicle pages). For images, we don't really need 3-4 cats, but for vehicle pages, it's fine. IE Toy Nighthawk... would be fine under BSI, Legendary, Toy... possibly even something like Purchasable item as well. (Check out the Cavalry page)... and as far as Burning Routes don't have the manufacturer in their name... they should. If nothing else than for linking purposes. It's stupid to have a link like Carson Fastback Burning Route. As far as I am concerned, the BR pages should include the manufacturer. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 06:46, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Eh sorry, that's not exactly what I meant. It should just be listed as Fastback Burning Route because that's what it says in-game. I also meant that the in-game wording for burning routes doesn't mention manufacturers, just vehicle names. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  06:54, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Picture Question Edit

As you may know, I am currently writing many articles for all Paradise City roads and monument/landmarks, my problem is that I have no knowledge of how to get screenshots taken without actually taking pictures with a camera... where does your picture on the Harbor Town page come from, and did you take it? I need to find a way to take aerial photos of paradise city to include in my upcoming articles... C ee X 17:52, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm afraid that I didn't capture the image, it's a screenshot from Criterion. =\ KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  18:48, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
I know of a way to get arial shots. Go into Picture Paradise mode (where it goes around the city playing classical music) and when/if it views the landmark, take the shot. As taking pictures goes, you'll have to buy a screen capture device, like a Dazzle, which cost $70. Babadingldoo 18:53, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Tomorrow Edit

Are you ready for the clan meet? I PM'd everyone (except you) on their PS3s, so you might be getting some last-minute friend requests. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 19:21, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't see why I wouldn't be. (And yes, I did get a few requests) KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  19:47, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
Cool. I'll drop in if I can. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 01:59, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Edits Edit

Hey there! Thanks for sweeping up the mess I left when I wrote the article concerning Root Avenue like "shorcut" and "pedestrain". However isn't "via" a useable word? I'd also like to nitpick on the "Elevated" El Train simply because "El" of El Train means elevated... Thus elevated El Train would mean elevated Elevated Train... But thanks anyway! C ee X (TALK) Burnopedia Admin - 12:48, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

You can change the elevated thing back if you want, I didn't realize that El meant elevated. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  12:12, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Promotion Edit

Go fast

PromotionEdit

Excellent! Your performance on this wiki has definitely been noticed and appreciated, throughout the community. You have done an amazing job and have helped the community, as a whole, in many useful ways and have helped some individual users very well. Because of this you are now a Sysop (administrator). You now have sysop rights, which enables you to delete and protect pages, block and unblock users and to have a wider role in the Burnout Wiki community. However you do not yet have bureaucrat rights but if you keep up the excellent work then you may be promoted again!

So now you're a sysop; your role in the community has changed once again. You will be asked lots more questions and given more and larger responsibilities. Eventually, you will be much busier and your assistance will be required much more frequently. When new users join the Burnout Wiki, it is recommended that you lead them and oversee their progress for a week or two until they become used to the wiki. Overall this is a bigger step to take, than your last promotion, and you deserve it! Just keep up the amazing work and help the community even more. Thanks a lot. Crashbroke23 Burnopedia Admin 02:11, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Re-edits Edit

Hey, sorry but I'll have to moan at you for a second or two. :-( *moans* I just wanted to say that in my opinion, you nitpick on syntax a teenee bit too much. But then again, your perfectionism is what differentiates us both and is certainly why you have been promoted to Administrator. BTW an intelligent question that'll help me understand, what does it change to replace underscores with spaces in file links? C ee X (TALK) Burnopedia Admin - 01:00, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Well nothing can be perfect, but admit that I am a picky person. Also, I get rid of underscores like that because I feel it's nothing but unneeded text. Just another picky "perfectionist" habit I have. =P KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  02:57, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
Whether underscores or spaces... doesn't matter... it's still 1 byte of information. I prefer no underscores myself as a matter of habit (unless it's a out-of-wiki link, where you can't use spaces). But yeah, Konig is more anal than me about wiki edits at time =) —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 08:07, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Sorry Edit

Hey there, sorry about the rediculous number of page changes, but it seems that evey time I try to preview, my browser freezes, and it has been a min since I saw code. I will post my email and gamertag on my page, as I am only trying to link up with other people who play on a more professional and respectful level. Sorry about the Noobness, buddy. LOL Uncommon509 23:20, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

It's alright, just as long as you don't continue the edits. I really wouldn't have a clue as to why your browser would be freezing up after hitting the preview button, but I do know that you won't have to worry about players who are less than professional/respectful here. We have some great players in our clan, and I hope you get a chance to see that. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  23:25, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Clan Rankings Edit

Is it okay with you if I carry out the emergency promotions required to have CeeX's new ranking system implemented? I'll give you a link on your talk page so you can go over them, if you want. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, see this link.) Oh, and you're number three now that Rappy stepped down. Congrats! Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 23:01, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

Nah, I am still #3, just inactive =p Maybe when he passes me in edits... —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 02:18, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
Check them out and see if you agree here. Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 00:24, September 11, 2009 (UTC)

Protection Edit

Meh, don't abuse protection... that's not what it's for. *frown* —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 02:17, September 3, 2009 (UTC)

Gah, I'm really sorry. I saw that TheParkster had originally protected his page (along with Exlonox) and had thought that it was okay. I'll go ahead and remove it. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  02:20, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
Then they slipped through my cracks... *eyes gleam like an evil mastermind* —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 02:21, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
A little naive here, how do I un-protect a page, do I have to change the expiration date? -_- ... KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  02:29, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
Umm, I don't quite remember =p I never protect pages. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 02:34, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
Meh, not a 'bad move' just unneeded. Protection should only be used seldomly... and on admin-only type editable pages. Protecting user pages that aren't under an edit attack is actually against wikia's 'standards'. BTW, can you unprotect parksters page too? Ex's already is. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 02:40, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
Actually just as you were typing this I was asking you what to do with TheParkster's page. Btw, I just shorted the protection time for mine. I saw no option to immediately remove protection but it should work anyway. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  02:43, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
There is a way to do it...

Clan Card Edit

O.o

That's a very cool clan card you have there! You had a great idea to change the colors, adds some personality to it! I wonder if Rappy would agree to edit the template we currently have so that it would be easier to change the colors... What do you think? Also, I'll nitpick you while I'm at it... ;-P

I think you should just shorten your "Availability", it deforms the template with 4 lines of text when it was made for only 1!

Example: "Available: Online Weekdays after 4PM EST, play Burnout Paradise on the weekends."

And finally, wouldn't you like to show off your card by putting it at the top of your page? Just ideas!

Cheers mate C ee X (TALK) Burnopedia Admin - 08:07, September 6, 2009 (UTC)

  • Availability

Even if I shorten the text in this section it would still end up with 2 lines. Although I guess it would look better that way.

  • Card color

It would be nice to change the color of the card immediately (without trouble), but I don't want to overhaul Rappy with such work. It's not that big of a deal.

  • My card

I would have liked to show off the clan card at the top of my page, but because of the layout I really couldn't do it. Besides, I'm not sure that it would look nice at the top even with readjustments. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  08:46, September 6, 2009 (UTC)

I think what he means for the card placement is to have it at the top and in the center between contents and your licence. Babadingldoo 16:17, September 6, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I know. I tried to do that but it ruined the page. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  21:41, September 6, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for editing my card because it looks completely messed up on my screen. It's running into the youtube video and has pushed text and images into the wrong areas (and on top of that I see multiple "invalid extension" messages at the bottom of my user page}. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  22:16, September 6, 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, looks fine to me. Are you using the right resolution? If you don't like it you can always undo it. And I don't know about that invalad extention junk, all those <includeonly>s were there before I edited it. Babadingldoo 22:22, September 6, 2009 (UTC)
Yes I'm using the right resolution, I just don't have a large screen. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  22:27, September 6, 2009 (UTC)

Clan message Edit

What do you think of this letter to inactive clan members? Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 19:29, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

It seems fine to me. I think you should give Seeks a heads up too; If he sees something he wants to add we can discuss an improvement of the message.
KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  19:41, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
He already okay'd it. Do you have any suggestions for improvement? Exlonox talk  Burnopedia Admin 19:43, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Nope, it's good to go. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  19:55, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

Annihilator Burning Route Page Edit

deleted "Annihilator Burning Route" ‎ (No content/invalid content: Article needs more detailed information, not a small guide that would belong in a forum post or something)

Hey - I put a fair amount of work into that page - granted it lacked some details, but it had no info before and now it has no info again. I thought the point of the Wiki format was that info could be added as needed and as each player knew details until the page was complete ... Tiger-Heli 18:34, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

I'm sorry if I was quick to delete your work, but in terms of article completion, we usually for detail like This. If users put a few sentences on a page that hasn't been started and try to call it an article it will usually be deleted by an admin. Sure I could put a stub on it, but the way I see it the page is better off left empty than left with another stub and some fragmented info. KoenigseggCCXR Burnopedia Admin  18:51, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
I guess that makes sense - I like the way the page you listed had the shortest route and two alternates. To be honest, I haven't succeeded with the Annihilator Route, so I was looking for help, and figured I'd at least add what I'd completed so far ... Tiger-Heli 19:02, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I do have a question, Do I need to give a notice of some kind when I want to join a Meeting? --Biophil12 23:31, November 9, 2009 (UTC)

Layout and Tables Edit

I noted that a *huge* amount of complicated code was put into place to make this wikia look this good. Alas, the recent restructuring to fixed wikia pages and the reduced width of the default text area has led almost all tables to look really bad. Spoiling all the wonderful work put into them.

The biggest issue is vertical bloat. I added some code changes on Big_Surf_Island_(update)#Vehicles as a test to show what I mean. My present solution to reduce the "Stars" in size under Ratings definitely helps. And ensuring the table is width 100% also gives a few extra pixel in width desperately needed.

Some feedback on what your thoughts are on the subject would be good. I hesitate meddling into more tables without an OK.

Templates: Several of those also show vertical bloat, if OK, I could suggest some changes to make the look nicer. E.g. the Event link box.

Anyway really great job you folks have been doing on this wikia. — AEon 09:29, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

See Carbon#List_of_Carbon_Cars for my concept table listing. I made the change a while ago, but never had the time to fix them all. If you're interested and have the time to fix them, it would be appreciated. Or if you wish to toss ideas around, go for it. I really don't like reducing the size of the stars though. —Rappy talk Burnopedia Admin • 09:36, January 29, 2011 (UTC)
That is an interesting solution, the horizontally placed dots are indeed the way it should be, just like in the game. And I see the point of using larger dots, i.e. to make them easier to read. Though an improvement it also takes some time getting used to, i.e. correlating the table title with the proper content field. And the speeds might also be better vertically aligned (Cruising over Boosting, reducing vertical padding). Alas, due to the width restriction and the mass of content, there is probably no "perfect" solution.
So rolling back my test changes should be done. Not sure I have the time to constantly apply your layout. But should I find anything else to suggest I'll mention or directly add it. — AEon 10:39, January 29, 2011 (UTC)

Resuming Activity? Edit

Hey Silver, it's been a long time!

I'm dropping you a line because I was wondering if you'd be willing to come back and edit on Burnopedia. I don't know if you have heard, but "Burnout Crash" is a game title that has been registered and as such is the first press announcement about a future Burnout.

I for one am editing more frequently here, doing my best to adapt Burnopedia to the new skin and polishing the content. Unfortunately everyone left when there was still a huge ton of work left... And there still is. I took up the responsibility to finish all street articles and that's what I'm going to do before the next game comes out.

So this leads me to asking if you were willing to help us finish up anything you like. Let's face it, there are missing articles in every area (except Burnout Paradise vehicles), most critical of which are: Pre-Paradise locations, events and Paradise events and challenges... I really want this "Burnopedia" to be complete, but I can't do it alone. Ex has come back but I think for a more administrative task, keeping the trolls and spammers at bay with his ban hammer of might. Rappy and I are getting technical with bots and DPLs to sort existing pages out and make life here easier on the long-term.

So there it is, a quick run down of the situation and our goals that should be completed before Crash is released... I hope you'll be able to help!

Cheers mate!
