Hello, if you could translate this article to Dutch (updated) I think it would be really awesome because it's one that I worked on a lot and I am interested in your language. :)--Leaderboard class allclass.png Akolyth (talk) 19:00, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Yeah sure, I'll get to it tomorrow morning, I'm really tired right now because it's 22:14 but I'll get on it tomorrow. GrampaSwood (talk) 20:14, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Hello GrampaSwood!

Thanks so much for your help. I have realized that now --Doktorjan 09:03, 30 December 2018 (UTC)


Hey, although I'm glad to see people translating wiki pages into Dutch, you really should pay more attention to basic grammar - you're getting basic verbs wrong in some of your translations. Sleepybird (talk) 04:43, 9 January 2019 (UTC)


Hey, er zijn een hoop pagina's waarvan de Nederlandse vertaling barst van de spelfouten, niet alleen de pagina's die door jou zijn vertaald. Het meest voorkomende probleem is volgens mij dat veel woorden die aan elkaar zouden moeten staan los worden geschreven: ik heb vandaag de pagina van de Gemuteerde melk verbeterd, waarin herhaaldelijk 'brood monster' stond in plaats van 'broodmonster'. Bijvoeglijk naamwoorden staan los - 'eng monster' zou wel los moeten staan - maar vaak zie ik foute spaties in zelfstandig naamwoorden. Ook had ik in het artikel dat ik van jou had verbeterd, die van de Millenial Mercenary, wat werkwoordspelling verbeterd. Derde persoon enkelvoud in de tegenwoordige tijd heeft natuurlijk geen stam + d. Kijk hier nog even naar: Sleepybird (talk) 15:46, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Iedereen maakt trouwens fouten, dus maak je geen zorgen :) Het is alleen iets om op te letten. Sleepybird (talk) 15:51, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Smissmas 2018 Nav

Sommige Smissmas 2018-voorwerpen hebben Nederlandse namen, ik ben ze aan het updaten. Weet jij toevallig hoe de nav onderaan de pagina's kan worden geüpdatet? Die geeft namelijk nog steeds de Engelse namen aan. Sleepybird (talk) 17:28, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Als het goed is dan word de nav geüpdatet via de dictionary (, deze link gaat naar de pagina met alle voorwerpen), je moet alleen wel met CTRL + F de Engelse naam opzoeken. (De Dictionary word ook gebruikt voor de {{item name/link|voorwerpnaam}}. Dat zorgt ervoor dat de naam automatisch vertaald word). GrampaSwood (talk) 18:05, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Trivia revert

First of all, if you don't think it's trivia, fine, but that doesn't mean you should just remove my contribution, second, no it's not mentioned already on the page, Will Sagerman's name is nowhere to be found on the page, he is the creator of the viewmodel and should be credited for it The preceding unsigned comment was added by TheKopakah (talk) • (contribs) 17:26 CEST

It's not that I don't think it's Trivia, it really isn't trivia. His name is mentioned in the infobox in the "contributed by" section. Please do not revert the edit again as it has been reverted before and might lead to punishment by :the staff.
Also please respond on your own user page next time (it's how the discussion can be followed by outsiders) and sign your comments using ~~~~

Hi GrampaSwood

First of all thank you. What I meant by the question meant am I doing a good job with the translations. The preceding unsigned comment was added by DoktorJan (talk) • (contribs) 29th of June 2019 20:35 CEST

I'm not Swedish myself, so I can't tell you. However, Steam has its own translation program called Steam Translation Server. There are 2 moderators for Swedish on there, Orange and Neargineer. You could add one of them and ask if they can review some of your translations.

Changes redo

I would like you to redo my changes on Template:Building Specifications, you told to provide a source, the source is myself, I have discovered it. I have a recording of me doing the test. BezaoBuilder (talk) 23:25, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Redo the edit and provide a source other than "I did it". Preferably a recording.
GrampaSwood (talk) 06:57, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
Ok, where should I send the recording?BezaoBuilder (talk) 16:35, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
Oh, the recording is here BezaoBuilder (talk) 16:40, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
If you could edit it to include a timer showing how 1 swing decreases it by 1,5 second, 2 swings would decrease it by 2 seconds, and 3 swings would decrease it by 3 seconds. You could also show how the first hit decrease. My adobe premiere shows it off as a having 61 frames per second, but 1,25 seconds being equal to 1 second for some reason. Preferably side by side, starting on the frame you place down the Sentry and ending on the frame the HUD icon changes. If you can't do this, or if someone else can't do it, you will have to wait until next week so I can do it myself.

This video was never intended to be published or easy for people to understand. This was simply made because I did not want to create a labyrinth of custom hammer-made maps, scripts, and screen recorders, I mean, I do not know if there is a "trigger_engineer_building" in hammer BezaoBuilder (talk) 16:17, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
All you just need to do is add some timers to it, it's not that much work. Otherwise, I can't confirm it.
GrampaSwood (talk) 16:24, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
But my Openshot does not have timers BezaoBuilder (talk) 17:45, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Meet the Robinsons speculation

Hi, GrampaSwood.

I added a note about speculations about the Shutterbug being a reference to Meet the Robinsons to the Trivia section because three different people have done it four times already. Considering the article is barely over one month old, I thought that was enough times to warrant a note, like how the Hound Dog has a Trivia note saying "Let readers make their own connection between the yellow painted Hound Dog and Johnny Bravo", and decided to add the Observer to the note as well because I saw that as a potential item for people to add multiple times too.

Cheers. =) - BrazilianNut (talk) 23:23, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

I only saw it being added once, and I usually see all/most edits on the English part of the wiki (I check the RC every morning until the last edit I saw in IRC's RC then sort on English only to make sure). I did not see other edits, so I missed them. I undid it now, but put the note at the bottom so people who are tempted to add it read it first as opposed to at the top/next to == Trivia ==
