About the "review" thing

Hello, I've got the message about the review of Jew, ClockworkSpirit and Dr. Scaphandre from Scaphandre. I think the reviews are probably about the Wiki Cap Nomination, so I leave a message here for the confirmation. If it is really about the nomination, then maybe I will take some time looking at these three nominees and give YES/NO reviews since I don't really know them much. Posing my reviews here later is probably not a good idea, so it would be great if there's another discreet way to send my reviews to you, thanks. ~www~ 19:50, 31 August 2016 (PDT)
BTW, the Cap review logs' password are auto-generated, I forget how to get inside. Is there any way to get in...?

The idea is that you don't need to be known beyond a pseudonym. Whenever you're ready send your vote and a reasonable short rationale. Either with Steam or IRC PMs. Email is also fine. -- Lagg Backpack Stickybomb Launcher.png 19:52, 31 August 2016 (PDT)
Okay. If I come up with reviews, I'll let you know. Probably by using Steam. ~www~ 20:58, 31 August 2016 (PDT)

Name of my account

Hey! I'm wanna change my wiki name "✌AlexBro✌" to "LazyRaider". Can i do that?The preceding unsigned comment was added by ✌ AlexBro ✌ (talk) • (contribs) ✌LazyRaider✌ (talk) 10:12, 7 January 2017 (PST)

I think the wiki doesn't like your peace signs. Page keeps erroring when I try to change it. :( -- Lagg Backpack Stickybomb Launcher.png 09:22, 7 January 2017 (PST)

New user

Hello, Lagg, today i have seen a new user Lordonio, who changes my articles to the wrong ones. When I try to put everything back into place, I get an identical change in response. Also some he's problems: tautology, bad russian language. Can you talk to him? He ignores my remarks. The preceding unsigned comment was added by ✌ AlexBro ✌ (talk) • (contribs) ✌LazyRaider✌ (talk) 05:53, 17 may 2017 (PST)

    • It looks like very big joke. Alex doesn't know much, do not take he seriously. And, Alex, please say about this Radist or TheRilonh not Lagg.
I'll take care of that. Go to work again, Laggles. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk | Contribs} 09:05, 17 May 2017 (PDT)

The Front Page is in horrible shape

We've had so many blogs happen, but no one has been updating the front page to reflect that. --User Dr. Scaphandre Golden Ghastly Gibus.png Dr. Scaphandre 14:35, 26 July 2017 (PDT)

I feel like this might be because the blags have had fairly meh content besides that update. But yeah. If you want to leave relevant links and descriptions for it I'll put and attribute you. -- Lagg Backpack Stickybomb Launcher.png 14:39, 26 July 2017 (PDT)
Even significant blogs like the announcement of the balance changes were not updated. But yes, I would like front page privileges back so I can fix this. (In terms of the blogs, I'll only put the most three recent blogs). I think it may also be time to rotate the Featured Article as well. --User Dr. Scaphandre Golden Ghastly Gibus.png Dr. Scaphandre 19:47, 26 July 2017 (PDT)

Trying to create my userpage with a link to my Wikipedia Userpage.

Hello, I am quite new to the TF2 wiki, but certainly not new to Wikimarkup and the lark. I am trying to add a link to my Wikipedia Userpage, but keep getting hit with a ReCAPTCHA for the external link, then a "This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: New user spam". What I am actually trying to type in: "Greetings, I am Littlecat456, an experienced wiki editor. My main wikipedia account can be found [here]. If you need to discuss something private with me, use the handy-dandy "Email this User" button found on both Wikipedia and this wiki. This page will slowly turn into something great, as I re-familiarise myself with Wikimarkup, and the lark." Please could you help me out? Thanks in advance.

Because Lagg is unlikely to answer at this time, I'll try to help. What usually works if excluding the external link (Or using [[w:User:Littlecat456|here]], that might work, too) then adding it in the 2nd edit. This is because there has been a rise in bots making accounts on the wiki and putting scam links on their user pages. This will catch some innocent users but largely stops the links.

Unable To Connect To The IRC Channel


I am sorry for bothering you.

I'm new to the Team Fortress Wiki and I was unable to connect to the IRC channel and that's why I am contacting you.

I have a few questions about navigating through the Wiki (I already read most of the guidelines), as the way of communicating here is pretty new to me.

I am not sure whom I should contact. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, sorry for late response. Seems that I messed up my notification settings a bit. Feel free to contact me or anyone listed here on their talk pages. At the moment we're still requiring users to be registered before joining. Which you can do by typing /msg nickserv help register and following the instructions. -- Lagg Backpack Stickybomb Launcher.png 06:33, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. No worries, it's not a late response. I did manage to register and am able to use the IRC chat. I appreciate your help. --Kubrat (talk) 12:13, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

The article I made keeps being flagged as "Large spam pages"

Hello, I'm new to the TF2 wiki and I was trying to make an article on basic strategies for sniper (classic) but it flagged it as large spam pages. Porcupine's Revenge (talk) 04:21, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

You triggered the filter that assumes an account is a bot if it doesn't have much of a history and tries to edit pages with links in them or tries to do substantial edits. -- Lagg Backpack Stickybomb Launcher.png 05:55, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
