What's the reason for mass deletion?
Boba, why...why are you deleting all of the self-made pages you've reworked in your sandbox? Why are you destroying months of your work, just because no one offered you help? I mean...its your sandbox, do what you want with it, but it seems to me that you have been working on this massive project for almost a year now (Unless I missed something), and it would be a really, really big shame if it all went down the waste. So here, I'm offering you help, let's finish these dammed self-made pages together!
Thanks for the offer, but they were right when it was too much work. While it’s not too much work to be finished, it IS too much work to be rejected outright once it’s finished because Tark stands by his opinion about the page as a whole, and I’m not one to waste time. I’m not a fan of having a whole big project like this rely on someone else’s opinion, so I hope you can understand the reason I requested it to be deleted. Thanks. ~ Boba 18:53, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
Hi, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. I didn't reject anything, I just explained why the page was deleted.
I still stand by what I said, but it was just my opinion, not a verdict. I don't have the power to shut down a discussions I don't agree with. — Tarklm(pt-br) 19:53, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
Template:Cerebral Discharge Killstreaker effects, and Cleaning Out Unused Templates
so, I'm working on cleaning out Special:UnusedTemplates. sort of. I think it's a bit of a Sisyphean task. anyway, among the list of unused templates was Template:Cerebral Discharge Killstreaker effects. its purpose is served by a table on Killstreak Kit, and your edit summary on creation just says, "test of format." was it supposed to be a sandbox for making the currently-used table? do you have plans to use it in the future? or can it just be deleted now, having served its purpose?

it's served its purpose. you can go ahead and delete it. ~ Boba 05:44, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
About Energy Orb effect
Hey, It's me Archimo, tried to help a viewer with sufficient proof regarding the energy orb situation, Would just like to try and clear this whole thing up about the Energy Orb effect so the information can be correct on the wiki, According to the wiki it couldn't be unboxed after Tough Break in 2015 from all decorated cases and it were removed from all unusual pools as well, It's currently not unboxable but this happened back in Jungle Inferno Oct 20th 2017 when they went over to case global effects as seen here: https://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=31834 talking about how cases will work in the pyro update later named the jungle inferno update.
Further more I unboxed an energy orb rocket launcher myself a bit above a month before the Jungle inferno update which according to the current information on the wiki it isn't possible since it were removed from all unusual pools in the tough break update of 2015. If the claim is that I recorded this video while it were still unboxable I think the fact that my only video from 2015 were recorded on phone and my videos for the first year or something were done with a trash mic, then I can also provide the backpack compare link (but wiki won't let me post it) where you can go to the history despite the rocket launcher showing as just an unusual stock rocket launcher with energy orb the history will work and go to the right item, where you'll notice it says the ID were first changed in 2019 until then it had the original id If any changes happens to an item or if it gets moved to let's say steam community market or you make any changes to it even a description tag etc, it's id change from the original id, considering that it were obtained on this compare link date it means that it were unboxed during 2017, which means the Wiki is incorrect about the tough break update being when it were removed.

Hi, I've reworded the notice on the Gun Mettle Unusual effect template to say "Removed from future Unusual pools in the Tough Break Update". According to a few sources, including your video, the Energy Orb effect was able to only be unboxed on the Gun Mettle series of cases, while being removed from future case pools. However, there is currently nothing concrete that I know of that documents the exact time the Energy Orb effect was also removed from Gun Mettle cases, rendering it completely removed. You would have to find proof, preferably through a diff, as your video, the backpack link, OR the blog post have file evidence proving what patch the effect was fully removed in.
TL;DR: I changed the wording on the weapon Unusual template. Please only change it back if you find concrete evidence through things like diffs and come to me about it. Thanks. ~ Boba 03:31, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
I currently do not see any changes on the unusual page. Maybe we can just word it to "taken out of future unusual pools during tough break & sometime after 2017 removed completely", in the unusual display where it currently says: "*Removed from all Unusual pools in the Tough Break Update" while in the 2015 tough break patch note as "Only appears in the Unusual Pool from Gun Mettle Going forward & were removed completely eventually", just to specify they were only ever available in the gun mettle cases and were later removed completely? Also I never did any edits to it I just provided the proof that the current info is incorrect. The proof so far should at least confirm this much and it's way better then the wiki being completely wrong on the subject even if it doesn't specify the exact date it were removed.

Hi, the change was made to Template:Gun Mettle Update Unusual effects hours ago. Unfortunately, loose wording like "taken out of future unusual pools during tough break & sometime after 2017 removed completely" isn't going to cut it for a wiki. The "proof" that was sent in doesn't apply to this situation. You're going to need to find proof showing EXACTLY when the effect was removed from the Gun Mettle pool. Something vague like your video or forum posts made days after an update aren't going to work, unfortunately. Thanks. ~ Boba 04:05, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
I feel like there is enough concrete proof to the point of it being available until the case global thing was added & Valve were saying on their blogpost that the case global thing was going to be added with the pyro (jungle inferno) update which it was. but Energy orb wasn't in the case global effect list for some reason, meanwhile you got the "undocumented change" which there is no proof of at all and that was completely fine having off of somebody assuming it were removed in tough break when it wasn't, what kinda documentation did they show cause they obviously didn't care to look into it at all? I don't really know what else I can do to change your mind on the subject, But honestly if it's worded to a point that people don't get mislead into the energy orb being removed in 2015 I'd be happy about that, I'm not sure how the template works, however I assume it'll be loaded up eventually and show as the new wording you put on it to specify that or am I wrong? Archimo (talk) 04:26, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
The global case Unusuals being added unfortunately doesn't prove anything towards this, though. If something on the wiki right now is incorrect, I'd rather have it stay that way until concrete evidence proves the correct information. Stuff like "since X was added, that potentially means Y was removed along with it" doesn't cut it. "X was removed and here is the proof showing when it was removed" does. The new wording on the template should already be there. If it's not, that's just cache issues. Try pressing Shift + F5. Thanks. ~ Boba 04:42, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
Pressing Shift + f5 didn't work neither did opening the page on my phone which have never been on the tf2 wiki, however if I go to edit it and go view preview it works, but just there not on the actual place it's supposed to be, kinda odd to me. Does it need to be corrected in multiple language or what's up with that? Archimo (talk) 05:09, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
That's just the wiki being the wiki. It's got a lot of weird technical quirks that I've just gotten used to. Please refrain from posting on my talk page until you can find more clearer evidence on exactly which patch Energy Orb was removed. I'll be looking, too. Thanks. ~ Boba 19:45, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
Wondering why the Graveyard glitch isn't a glitch?
The inside wall of the BLU morgue has the same map-leak effect (saw this while noclipping) which is probably due to the map-maker optimising the map so the areas players don't see doesn't have to be rendered. But this means because the ghosts can be used to see through walls a player can easily come across this disorientating visual problem so shouldn't we classify this because couldn't the mapmaker fix this by making that wall rendered?
