I'll just tack this on the bottom

I can't tell where to put this so I'll just tack it onto the bottom. Shouldn't the things you're adding to their talk pages just be templates? Much cleaner. Legend26 (talk | contribs) 21:22, 15 January 2012 (EST)

Because people don't really like it when I make new pages. And since it will obviously be deleted in a few days, when they don't like being called noobs, it's much easier just to copy and paste. Also, please put your OWN signature in a template pl0x? - Quenty (talk • January 16)
Don't see why. It's not exactly that big compared to some others. Legend26 (talk | contribs) 21:33, 15 January 2012 (EST)
That's true, however I liki looking at {{User:Legend26/sig|date=21:33, 15 January 2012 (EST)}} then whatever you've got there.  :D Oh well. Do as you must. - Quenty (talk • January 16)

Welcome to the Roblox Wiki

I see you've added about 31,548 lines of text in welcome messages in under five minutes. To assist you, and to provide others with an easier method of cleaning those messages up, I've created a page for you here. Just use {{User:Outofspace/HeyWelcome}} to post your message (at your prerogative, of course). ~⇒OutOfSpace

Erm. Ok. Do you want me to fix/change it now, or what? It seems though, if you look at recent changes now, you might find that most of the users are deleting it/looking at it to figure out how to use wiki formatting. However, if you wish me to do it as a template, I'd be happy to do it. :P Just tell me what you want me to do.... :P - Quenty (talk • January 16)
No, I'll take care of that. I'll be sure to include an HTML comment above the tag so they know what to delete/what not. I don't mean to sound picky or fussy about this, just wanted to suggest it :P ⇒OutOfSpace

Combining a Couple Pages

You said if I had a question to post on someone's talk page: that's what I'm doing. :D Well, I found that there are 2 pages on a lot of the same stuff: Groups and Group Admin. Both of which are slightly outdated. Could we combine them? And then once we do, I'll make any needed updates?

Shagabash | PM | Talk | Contribs | 
17:26, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
I would agree with combining them into just a Group page. As to updating the images, I'm not sure if even editors can. Legend26 (talk | contribs) 12:43, 17 January 2012 (EST)
Why wouldn't we be able to update/replace the images?
Shagabash | PM | Talk | Contribs | 
21:54, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
I know I can update the images. However, they probably should be combined. :P - Quenty (talk • January 18)
Can I go ahead and combine them? It'd be best if we could update the images first, though..
Shagabash | PM | Talk | Contribs | 
01:03, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Talk to someone else, I would personally say yes. - Quenty (talk • January 18)
Okay.. All I really need though is some images to be updated.
Shagabash | PM | Talk | Contribs | 
03:18, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, well. I don't think writers can update images... Not sure though. - Quenty (talk • January 18)

I haven't found any way to. This is why I need you or some other editor. :P
Shagabash | PM | Talk | Contribs | 
03:44, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
OK. What pictures, and where? - Quenty (talk • January 18)
I'd like the pictures on Groups to be updated; I can make them myself, but then I'd need to have a way to send you the files.
Shagabash | PM | Talk | Contribs | 
03:47, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
I'll try to update them soon. Remind me sometime. - Quenty (talk • January 18)

Links

Here, here and on many other pages too, you've added links to certain words. But, these link were already in the "In Object:" section of the page. Wouldn't such links be kind of redundant, considering the same link is there just one line below?
03:45, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
The point of adding the link is so no matter where you are on the wiki, you keep on clicking. This happens on like every single wiki except for this one, and the one I'm running for my Robotics team. If you add more interesting content, then the more people learn about ROBLOX! - Quenty (talk • January 18)
Yes, but the exact same link is there one line below...
04:33, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Some 7 year olds are oblivious. - Quenty (talk • January 18)
Well, maybe, but I don't really think that's a good reason to spam the article with links. Look here: Editing Policy: Navigation. It says "This should be the first time a term comes up".
I don't think putting 50 times the same link in the same page, especially on two adjacent lines, is a good idea. Too much links makes reading harder. However, I do believe that this list should be empty.
04:49, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
I have to agree with Julien. If they're oblivious, it's their problem. Legend26 (talk | contribs) 23:52, 17 January 2012 (EST)

What's wrong with extra links? - Quenty (talk • January 18)

Too much identical links means blue text everywhere, which can be annoying and make reading harder.
00:51, 18 January 2012 (EST)
It's actually only 1 link though, and makes it easier to navigate. Also, look at the number of links on Wikipedia. - Quenty (talk • January 18)






I cannot approve revisions on the SOPA article.

Because a certain someone set the z-index so high as to go over top of the wiki buttons.
Good job on that, by the way.
Samacado 01:03, 19 January 2012 (EST)

I can approve it myself. However, I couldn't get a few buttons... -___- DANG IT! - Quenty (talk • January 19)
Haha, funny. I used index.php?title=title&action=edit to edit the page. :)
I just did that. However, I want to overwrite the last icons/search. Anyway? - Quenty (talk • January 19)
I bet if I placed this on the home page of the wiki, users would freak. - Quenty (talk • January 19)
I believe MrDoomBringer would freak too... Anyways.. STOP USING THE <center> TAG, IT IS DEPRECATED! Also, when using rgba, don't forget to also put a normal rgb. Not all browsers support rgba. However, they all support opacity, so try using opacity too. It's easy to see you just copied it from my menu, since you're making this simple mistake. :) Try using opacity when you can, instead of rgba. The only difference is that opacity makes everything transparent, including child objects (in my navigation menu, that'd have made links and the title transparent, which is not desirable. That's why I used rgba).
I'm a CSS noob. Cut me some slack. - Quenty (talk • January 19)

DO NOT REVIEW User Sub-Pages

They are not meant to be reviewed to where the owner of that sub-page has to have it reviewed again for any changed to be made. MrNicNac - Wiki Editor

Oh, so that's the reason it needed to be reviewed. I thought it was because it was used on many pages or idk.

Problem with archiving talk

I spend the last 10 minutes looking for a heading listed on the recent changes, and couldn't find it. This is because the headings get consume by the tabs. Can I suggest that to remedy this, you do not use the tabs? I'm about to make an edit that provides an alternative.
10:57, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
I didn't change that. MrHistory did. Please talk to him. kthxbai. - Quenty (talk • March 15)

What in the WORLD is going on?

Anyone got ANYTHING? Ironnoob says an administrator got passguessed. - Quenty (talk • April 2)

Been wondering the same. I'd think that's the most likely answer. That was certainly... interesting. Hopefully they'll tell us what happened, but given Roblox's history being open about this stuff, I doubt it. Legend26 (talk | contribs) 00:00, 2 April 2012 (EDT)
That's what I said on IronNoob. I also said: #bigbrotheriswatching, but that's just a bit over the top. Anyway, I've found substantial documentation on IronNoob, and it STILL looks like someone PGed an admin.
One mentioned something about the forum mods trying to stop it and then SML shutting down the site. Honestly doubt that it happened that way, but something like that I think. Legend26 (talk | contribs) 00:59, 2 April 2012 (EDT)
JulienDethurens and I are playing games using teleport service. :P - Quenty (talk • April 2)
What did I miss? I can see the site is down, but what else happened?
08:38, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

I didn't miss anything. I've seen it all. ALL of it. Throughout all of it, I believed it was a joke. But when I saw stickmasterluke, considering he is an admin, himself not sure what was going on (on twitter), and then, after seeing the admins literally swearing on the forums (I know they would never do that, even as a joke), I started having doubts. Apparently, briguy also posted on twitter that it isn't a prank, but I couldn't find his tweet. Here is what happened (some of these might be unrelated, but they still did happen. Also, the order might not be exact):

  • Many players, OBC and TBC, started giving away their accounts, for weird reasons. I have myself seen three of such posts, and thought they were probably all just kidding, but their passwords were indeed the right ones, according to other comments in the forum posts, and it all happened in less than an hour. According to a post on IronNoob, there are many more of these, 17, if I remember.
  • I started seeing posts about Minish having bought Merely's Domino Crown for 12 millions (if I remember well, it was 12 millions) ROBUX and Dignity being back (which was indeed true, I literally saw a post from Dignity, I even have a link to it. Dignity did post and was indeed unbanned for 5 minutes or so)
  • Heard stuff about LMaD, so started looking over there. The forum was being spammed with donation requests to Minish and Merely. Minish donated 10 millions of ROBUX to three players and Merely donated 2 millions, I think, to random users, with amounts ranging from 10k ROBUX to 50k ROBUX.
  • The banners on the site started going completely crazy and they started saying lots of things, here are some of these (there were also more, like one saying jaredvaldez4 is the best builder on ROBLOX, and one about free BC, but I missed these. The ones listed below did indeed happen, and their text was exactly as I put it below. I even noted the color):
    • RED: Playing roblox is always better then going outside!
    • RED: Abcedfghikjlmnoqprstuvwzyx
    • RED: NO TOMATO IS ALWAYS BEST SILLY ORANGE
    • BLUE: minish is a stupid noob. nah not rly
    • PINK: remember kids trust anyone with your password
    • ORANGE: APRIL FEWLZ
    • PINK: Ten bux says we do roll back on today
    • PINK: hai itz pheedy mcnoobster and minish and we taken over
    • PINK: McNoobster in dah houze
    • PINK: McNoobster!!!!!!
  • Merely got deleted.
  • Are17, Pheedy, and some other users got administrative powers and started messing around.
  • Some admins started cursing on the forums. (I'm serious. I've seen two of these posts, and that's when I started to doubt, because I knew the admins would never do a such thing, even as a joke) The posts were deleted soon after, though.
  • Maintenance for some minutes, a really short maintenance.
  • The site comes back up for some minutes.
  • Maintenance. This maintenance is still continuing at the moment and the site has not came back up.
  • Me and Quenty start communicating through twitter and we start having fun playing random places with the TeleportService.

More information can be found on this blog post. I'm just posting it here so people who didn't see it can know what happened, btw. --JulienDethurens 05:13, 2 April 2012 (EDT)

How could this have happened? I'm doubting an account got pass guessed at this point, because there was more than one admin that was cursing on the forums, unless one account had the passwords of everyone's. -pighead10 05:19, 2 April 2012 (EDT)
Well, the thing is, when you have access to one admin account, you automatically have access to all the accounts on ROBLOX, including the accounts of all the other admins. I remember MrDoomBringer saying that they were able to take control of someone's else account so they could look at our non-public domain models and places, and if mods can do that, admins certainly can too. --JulienDethurens 05:38, 2 April 2012 (EDT)
Scary mess. Really. When I found out I suddenly had over 7.5M bux I found out [someone] (turned out to be Merely) "bought" my Wanwood crown for 10M.. Seems like Merely also "sold" a hat for .. 12M bux. I hope a real rollback will take place. --Dennisvdz 16:36, 2 April 2012 (EDT)
Very interesting, but to be honest - does anyone fully believe someone guessed an administrators password? There are multiple sites dedicating to teaching hacking of large networks, as well as multiple hacking groups that tend to 'branch' off for fun. MrNicNac - Wiki Editor
They/he/she might have bruteforced it, tho... As far as I know there isn't a limit on login tries you make. Or I've just never hit that limit. --Dennisvdz 07:55, 3 April 2012 (EDT)
The isn't a limit on login tries you make, but there is a captcha. Therefore, bruteforcing is not an option. --JulienDethurens 23:16, 3 April 2012 (EDT)
Bit late here, but those two posts with admins swearing: Go look at the screenshots again, specifically the dates the admins posted them. Both of them were generated through client-side modification and neither of them are legitimate screenshots. Both were edited, either in-browser or in an imaging program. Funnily they forgot to change the date too.
Trappingnoobs   (Writer, Editor, Reviewer)    Like something I did? Dislike something I did? Tell me on my talk page20:57, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Of course the date is from years ago. I don't think they were able to post as another person, just edit old posts and other such stuff. Legend26 (talk | contribs) 17:47, 19 August 2012 (CDT)

I thought I already warned yall about this? Whenever my account was stolen and I took it back, I went through all the messages and found messages from some of their "big hackers" saying things like "hey watch out, there's gonna be a huge hack day soon. It's gonna be way bigger than april fools" ( or something similar, haven't been on SDuke in over a month ). The guy who took my account was also a LMaD guy and did pretty much the same thing with my account: spam messages, buying hats for other accounts and I think he also took 100k tickets and 50k robuxs from my account and spread it through his other ones.--~SDuke524~ 22:32, 19 August 2012 (CDT)
Wait sorry, I didn't see the date on this and assumed it was talking about a recent event.--~SDuke524~ 22:43, 19 August 2012 (CDT)

Image

Hey there. Just curious, do you still remember why you tagged this image for deletion? It links to a bunch of pages, so I'm just curious. Thanks!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 19:36, 12 April 2012 (EDT)

Nope, no idea. I fixed it. Probably just super tired when I did it. - Quenty (talk • April 13)
Not a problem!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 00:02, 15 April 2012 (EDT)
Great! - Quenty (talk • April 17)

Erm..

Please, don't create object pages just to create them. I was about to create it, anyway. Just do some research on Google and you'll probably find some threads about it on ROBLOX or something. If there's really no info at all, post on the talk page without creating the page and send a PM to a developer (yes, they actually answer to our questions about the wiki). --JulienDethurens 21:26, 25 April 2012 (EDT)

I'm doing it so we all know it's a stub, not a dead end. Seriously. I'm creating them for a reason. People don't look at bad redirects, they look at stubs. Solution found. - Quenty (talk • April 26)
Anyone can make stubs. Don't be lazy. --Anaminus 21:34, 25 April 2012 (EDT)
Well, if you insist... - Quenty (talk • April 26)
Do some research. If you can't find anything, ask a dev and post on the talk page. --JulienDethurens 21:36, 25 April 2012 (EDT)

Block

Hey Quenty. I saw you blocked an account. While the username is bad, it doesn't have any tools, so the block wasn't needed. We don't need to be blocking old users. Thanks.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 12:38, 6 May 2012 (EDT)

I was hoping it would hide the name from this list. However, it didn't do that. So it failed. Thanks for the advice. - Quenty (talk • May 6)
This is why we need Oversight. Hide log actions (ex. user creation log). --User:Tomtomn00/Signature

Class stubs

I sure hope you plan on filling in the Toolbar page. If you're just going to put a stub in, then don't even bother creating the page. --Anaminus 15:16, 10 July 2012 (EDT)

I'm not entirely sure how to, but I was planning on giving it a shot. The idea is that I usually go through the stubs on the wiki, so I'll remember to go back to that page... - Quenty (talk • July 10)
Fixed that for you

Someone Reviewed My User Subpage

Self-explanatory. I woke up today, and one of my user sub-pages is reviewed. It's here. Would you mine fixing this? --»ElectricBlaze (Writer) 13:32, 1 August 2012 (EDT)

Ugh, someone did it to my userpage too. It's here. --»ElectricBlaze (Writer) 13:38, 1 August 2012 (EDT)

Check the history for the person who reviewed it. You can ask gordonrox24 to delete your userpage and restore the last revision which should fix it. Legend26 (talk | contribs) 14:52, 1 August 2012 (EDT)
It was Reesemcblox. It says that she checked the previous revision, and that the latest one is "pending review". Don't I just need an editor or a reviewer to approve my latest versions? --»ElectricBlaze (Writer) 19:36, 1 August 2012 (EDT)
Alright, never mind; MrNicNac checked it. It's cool. --»ElectricBlaze (Writer) 13:36, 3 August 2012 (EDT)
Argh, but nobody has checked it since August 2nd. :C --»ElectricBlaze (Writer) 16:02, 6 August 2012 (EDT)
Ok. I think I fixed it. xD - Quenty (talk • August 11)
Thanks! »ElectricBlaze (Writer)

Example - Template:Lua

I wanted to create a example template. That has a explanation of what it was doing. What do you think? I can make a test page to show you? Just let me know what you think. --
Itunes89 (Itunes89 - Talk)
20:30, 8 October 2012 (CDT)
I'm not sure what you're referring too. Can you clarify your statement? Are you talking about this template?
Sorry, I'm talking about adding a example template. Notice here how there is a example section. A part that explains what the code will do, then the code. I was thinking of making a template that houses all that in a neat box. Just to make it look nice is all.

19:15, 9 October 2012 (CDT)
Oh, of course! So do you want help creating it? I'm not too great at templates, but I'm sure I can help! - Quenty (talk • October 10)
Template:Example Legend26 (talk | contribs) 21:46, 9 October 2012 (CDT)
Well, great. I could have swore I looked.... Anyway I could edit that.
Itunes89 (Itunes89 - Talk)
07:44, 10 October 2012 (CDT)
We don't need it in a "neat box". It's better as a subheading on each member page. The {{example}} template is already overused. Feel free to try and improve the template, but please try to avoid using extra boxes unless they add value.

Wiki Cheat-Sheet

Hey Quenty, I was just wondering if you could update the wiki cheat-sheet so it has the CURRENTTIME command? That would be awesome, thanks! -Usering -

Where would I find that? And what do you want specifically changed? - Quenty (talk • February 10)
In your cheat sheet, for the date it includes everything but the CURRENTTIME. Cheat Sheet -Usering -
Fixed. xD Thanks. - Quenty (talk • February 10)
No problem -Usering -
