IP user issue Edit

Blue Rook, This IP user has been doing incorrect & sometimes irrelevant edits in this wiki and it's becoming a problem. Someone needs to keep an eye on him. BattleshipMan (talk) 17:49, May 28, 2015 (UTC)

Special edition S1 DVD Edit

Hey Blue Rook, hope you're well! I was wondering whether you had the Special Edition S1 DVD with the deleted scenes on it - I saw you've uploaded some pics from deleted scenes in the past. Unfortunately I don't think it's available in the UK and I was looking for a favour about one of the deleted scenes (User blog:Acer4666/Andre Drazen's phone) and wondered if you could possibly help? Thank you :)--Acer4666 (talk) 15:02, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

1x17 deleted andre phone

Andre's phone

Turns out it's an "Audiovox"! Not sure what the "M" is about though. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 06:19, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
Ah that's brilliant, thank you! I did suspect it was Audiovox but thats great to have it confirmed. Still can't find that particular model but will keep trying now I have had it narrowed down :)--Acer4666 (talk) 08:25, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
Yes I actually spent some time trying to find the model information, with no luck. That's a tough hobby you have there. Technology has been moving so fast over the years. If you had to guess, what degree of likelihood is it that this is simply a custom prop and not an actual phone? Blue Rook  talk  contribs 19:23, June 12, 2015 (UTC)
Well, after a good few solid hours searching, I finally tracked down the model number. Audiovox CMP3! You're not wrong about it being a tough hobby :P Although I'm not sure they'd create custom props, what is possible is they get given prototype bits of technology that then never get released and so there's no info on them haha. Anyways thank you so much for your help in identifying this!--Acer4666 (talk) 18:14, June 14, 2015 (UTC)

Adam Morgan Edit

We could use your opinion on what to do about the actor who portrayed Adam Morgan in the picture at this forum since two actors share that name. BattleshipMan (talk) 20:19, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 02:42, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

Actor category order Edit

Hey Blue Rook! About my huge scale edit changing all the actor category orders :P I proposed it on the forum here, to be more consistent with the order "Characters", "Day X characters", "more specific info about them" that we have on character pages--Acer4666 (talk) 18:41, June 22, 2015 (UTC)

Weird crap Edit

Haha are you describing text from Wiki 24 as "weird crap"? How dare you! :P --Acer4666 (talk) 11:02, July 31, 2015 (UTC)

Hah! Couldn't make out what that was... Blue Rook  talk  contribs 05:11, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

Portable InfoboxesEdit

We’re reaching out to a few of our top communities, hoping to get you on board with the migration to the new infobox markup. And we have tools to help!

‘’’Why we’re doing this’’'

Simply put: Most current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and indeed any device that doesn’t use desktop-style displays. On desktops and laptops, they often look amazing. The problem is that Wikia’s traffic is trending mobile.

There is an important graph from our forum post about infoboxes a couple weeks back, and I want to share it here as well:

Wikia mobile traffic growth

Mobile is the future. Not just for Wikia, but for the web as a whole. Take a look at the recent trends and future growth predictions for mobile traffic - it's staggering.

We partnered with the Wikia community to create this new markup to make sure that your hard work can be displayed on mobile devices (as well as any future technologies) easily and without any new coding conventions. It’ll take some effort up front, to be sure, but we’re here to help, and the work you put in now will pay for itself tenfold in the future.

‘’’Tools we’ve designed to ease the process’’’

We’ve enabled two new features on your community. One is a tool for migrating the “old” infobox code to the new markup. It identifies templates on your wikia that look like infobox templates and places a box on the right rail of the template page. When you click the “Generate draft markup” button in this box, it opens a new tab containing a draft of your infobox using the new markup.

The second is a new feature on Special:Insights that will highlight which infoboxes on your wikia have not been migrated to the new infobox markup. It’s fairly intuitive - you can click on the infobox title link itself to see the old markup, or simply click the “Convert!” button on the right, which performs the same action as the “Generate draft markup” button.

This is our help page for the new markup. I’ll help get things rolling by converting a template or two as an example if you’d like me to, as well as watching this post for any questions. Pinkachu@Wikia (talk) 21:22, August 25, 2015 (UTC)

About NinaEdit

When I added her 2 the 2nd wave category you removed her. ...Why? She, by being the middleperson between wave and Wald's crew, was absolutely supporting and aiding the terrorist group. And why would Marianne be in the Marwan group categ if Nina can't b in dis 1?SuperbowserX (talk) 08:19, March 29, 2016 (UTC)

Nina wasn't a member of Second Wave: she did not answer to Syed Ali or anyone within his organization. She worked for herself, and simply sold information to Second Wave. On the other hand, Marianne Taylor worked directly for Powell, who was a member of Marwan's cell. The chain of command in her instance goes up to Marwan.

Nina answered to Mamud Rasheed Faheen didn't she?--SuperbowserX (talk) 19:38, March 29, 2016 (UTC)
I'm still holding to my point xD--SuperbowserX (talk) 23:00, March 29, 2016 (UTC)
She was hired by Second Wave to sell information Wald, but the criteria of the category defines the inclusion by members of the terrorist cell only. She was simply not a member of Second Wave. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 15:33, May 13, 2016 (UTC)

Just wanna say thanksEdit

Hey Blue, I've been making my Karma Houdini Compilation page, and I just want to say thanks a lot for you're Villain Factor page and your "Forbidden Characters" pages! They're very entertaining and have helped me enormously in making my list!--SuperbowserX (talk) 05:46, April 28, 2016 (UTC)

Certainly, I'm glad to have helped! Blue Rook  talk  contribs 15:33, May 13, 2016 (UTC)

SpiffEdit

Hey, I'm with Wikia's Community Development team. We're expecting Wiki 24 to get a bump in traffic when Legacy comes out and we thought it would be nice to help you guys spruce the community up a little. I've been sent over to help you guys with anything cosmetic you might want someone to look at, and maybe make some light improvements... for example, I feel like I could make your homepage a lot more engaging and dynamic. Is there anything you guys would like help with? Obviously you guys would have final say on anything I help out with... I'm just here to help, not to step on toes or make changes that you don't want. - Billy Arrowsmith (Talk), 19:57, April 29, 2016 (UTC)

I have replied directly on your Talk page. This is an excellent offer, and I hope you are still willing to lend a hand despite my delayed reply. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 15:33, May 13, 2016 (UTC)

Update information Edit

I added the articles of LAD actors; stuntman Richard Hansen and background actor Kevin Fyfe. Hansen appeared as one of Bashir's men in 9x02, just in case if you didn't see a picture of him on there. I also found out that Philip Winchester and Nazneen Contractor appeared in the backdoor pilot of the upcoming show Chicago Justice that aired in Chicago P.D..

Hi, Blue Rook!

Would you be interested in having 24 added to our television footer program?
