It's been a while since my last visit as a registered user. I've just started another run of the first F.E.A.R. and its expansions, while I was toying with the camera I've found a very interesting way to do a screenshot of a weapon.
The process allows the player to take a full screenshot of the weapon. Basically, you just have to crouch or stand in the corner of a well lit room and play with the 'lean' keys to see the weapon in its entirety.
Hey Leea, how's the wiki been treating you? A fellow admin on a couple of other wikis I regular has offered to help update the wiki, and I think it's a great idea. He knows a lot about coding and formating - way more than I do, and I would love to let him help us out. Are you alright with that? You wouldn't lose your status at all - we would just gain another member of our team. :)
Personally, I have no problem with the "old" one. It has Alma, and it has the F.E.A.R. logo. With the one you've shown me, it has Alma and Beckett, which excludes the Spin-offs in the series, Perseus Mandate and Extraction Point.
I really have no idea, whoever it was would most have likely created the wiki here around 2004/2005, when F.E.A.R. first came out, which is way beyond my time here, because I only really edited here since 2011.
From what I can tell, he threatened to sue Wikia staff if they continued to allow a small Wiki to use images from his Deviant Art account. There may have been more to it than just that, but that appears to have been the incident that caused the global ban.
I'm pretty sure I've seen him around on a bunch of different wikis too. I think the ban is recent, because there was a war between him and the admins on the Warhammer 40,000 wiki just a month or so ago.
To be honest, I believe the reason people disagree with the wikis is because of the rules that are given. Thats kind of why Im too scared to edit stuff on any of these wikis. I just dont wont to get into trouble over editing. I myself can feel that the wikis out there are very harsh with editing. People hate it, its unfair, and there is always arguments over many things. Did any of you feel that way before you became admin and first started?😑
Of course, lots of people feel that way. Or maybe that was just me. I know I got into lots of trouble at Elder Scrolls just a month ago for "irrelevant edits," but those edits were of use, and I had spent a lot of time researching the stuff I posted so someone else could use the info. I've been around wikis since 2008, so that was more than enough time to hone editing skills, so it was not like I was a vandal or left spelling mistakes left and right. You always get in each wiki the jackasses that think they can boss you around because they've been there longer than you, or have a higher position than you. But that's not true, those higher positions are a major responsibility, and that admins are seen as good people ready to help with anything on the wiki. I just hope I live up to that.
You mentioned on a F.E.A.R. 4 post that it would be beneficial if Warner Brothers was swamped with messages about making F.E.A.R. 4 (with F.E.A.R. 4 preferably taking place after the events of F.E.A.R. 3). So what's stopping any one from doing this? I don't think anything is. So I will try. But for me to try that means everyone that's a part of the F.E.A.R. community must get on the boat with me if this is to be the most effective. I'm not exactly sure where to start though and I have some questions about how to start.
I ran at Google with an axe and found the most direct way for a consumer to contact Warner Brothers is through customer service. That's all I found but that doesn't seem the most appropiate place to send messages. No doubt if enough messages were to sent to anything Warner Brother some attention would be gained but I'm trying to get as much attention as possible. Any ideas of where to even target with a flood of messages? (If I can even get enough people for the messages to even be classified as a "flood").
Another user that used to come here, I think his name was Stoudemire, he put up a Facebook page for some sort of prodding Warner Bros. for F.E.A.R. 4, though I have no idea how that worked out (I have no Facebook page). Does Warner Bros. have any Facebook page, or other "social media" outlet? It seems that everyone does these days, even the US government, so why an entertainment company wouldn't is beyond me.
Hey there, i was wondering, do you think it might be a good idea to make a stub that indicates that the article is in FEAR Online, because the Online FTP stuff is always changing and I'm not really sure if FEAR Online counts as a true fear game. At least to me , it does not seem to really sem to have a place in the overall timeline. It's like Tiberium Alliances does not have a proper setting in Command and Conquer, it makes it clear about where it basically stands in the timeline, but it acts more of a multiplayer than actually contributing to the story. cheers
I don't think that there is such a thing as stub categories for particular games. There is another F.E.A.R. game, F.E.A.R. Combat, that is exclusively online content, though there is no "individual missions" like I'm aware that there is in F.E.A.R. Online. At the same time, I don't really know (as you) if Online would constitute as a spin-off or main timeline game. I would just say that because of the title, "F.E.A.R. Online," that it would be a F.E.A.R. game, though "spin-off" or not is unclear.
You're doing a great job with the articles, by the way.
On further thought, since the game was published by Warner Brothers (which owns the F.E.A.R. title, by the way), and since Monolith won't have anything more to do with the F.E.A.R. series (they said F.E.A.R. 2 would be their last game), and Day 1 was bought out (they were supposed to continue the F.E.A.R. titles after Monolith), I would hazard to think that F.E.A.R. Online would indeed be in the cannon timeline. After all, Warner Bros. is the only one left with the copyright to F.E.A.R., they can use any game studio to make a F.E.A.R. game, and thus I think that indeed F.E.A.R. Online would be cannon.
Sorry about that. I was busy helping with the details of some parties and also cleaned out my closet. Its amazing how stuff can get shoved to the back, and it stays there until you decide to re-arrange and then its found again with cries of "Hey! I remember this? How did it get all the way back there?" =P
If you'd like to hang around and want the responsibility, I'd like to open up a community vote for you as admin. Since I don't have bureaucrat status, I can't give you the right myself, but Wikia staff have said they'll give admin rights to whoever the community agrees on.
That'd be OK. I'm a Patroller at the Fallout wiki, so I know some of the tools that are included with an Admin's tools. However, I know that there are more tools that an Admin has access to that a Patroller doesn't, so is there somewhere I can read about the particular toolset of an Admin?
Actually, I am already an admin in Wolfenstein. Not going to lies to you since most of over there are every busy with other community. While I remain watching over there. Leea, you should be the one here miss. It will be perfect choice guarding all these precious information. Until the fourth installment come, then we will discuss it how to improved more of it.
Though I have no idea if hacking someone's wikia account is possible, I do remember Stoudemire complaining awhile ago that someone used his account to vandalize wikis and he was being banned for stuff he didn't do. The original "'cocking' a grenade" edits were done by an anon, then more (that I didn't see as bad edits or vandalism) were done by your account. Maybe someone guessed your password and logged in as you, I don't know. I know I had a weird experience like this a couple years ago at the Fallout Wiki, where a Patroller said I had deleted a bunch of stuff on the Mirelurk page, when I had not even touched that page in a very long time. It didn't happen again, and I'm very thankful for that. Maybe you could change your password, just to be sure.
I am not certain my account is secure, but I am certain this incident is partly my fault. I forgot to log out after I left, and my brother saw the page and decided to "mess" with it, thankfully the damage is not severe or I am gonna catch heat for this. Now I set password to my PC, I cannot afford to let this happen again.
Sometime, it cannot be solved even you change your password it come back again in any-time. Ever since all the update of the community have already attracting more unwanted guests to imposting someone to do something that is not commit by him. Better keep your eyes on it. It may happened to anyone of us.
You know, I would love to, but I don't have a Live account, nor do I have the right internet connection. I have dial-up internet. You wouldn't believe how many times I've been asked if I could play with someone, only to have to turn them down. Sorry about that. =(
So I dug into the blurry image problem a little deeper, and found something weird. It appears that Wikia has automatically resized some images to a fraction of what they originally were (and it's possible it has resized all images, but some were so large to begin with that it didn't affect them), which makes regular sized versions of them look blurry and distorted. For instance, this is the size of your image that turns up when I click View Image. I highly doubt you uploaded something that tiny, so it must be Wikia doing it. It's done it to a bunch of other images too, both here and on other wikis. Weird. I'll go ahead and contact Wiki about it.
No, I didn't upload something that small. I would never upload something that small. The pictures are 1280 x 720 pixels, and were of very high quality. There would be almost no point in uploading thumbnail sized pics. =P
Well, whatever Wikia has done, it has gotten worse. Now I can't upload pictures, period. It keeps telling me that its not the right file format, although most (if not all) of the pics I've uploaded are of the JPEG format.
From what I hear, Wikia's just been having problems in general the last couple of days. I got a reply almost immediately saying they were aware of the problem and are working on it, so it sounds like they know things aren't working the way they should. I guess we just have to wait for them to fix it.
