I think it's quite obvious why you deserve this. You have spent the past few days tirelessly revising pages and uploading images, seemingly to no end! Combined with your work in the foreign versions of this wiki, it's safe to say you're making this wiki better.

A loss for words (and an amicable amount of concern)

Jeez, man... In my relatively short time on here, I've never seen anyone, especially someone as new as you, contribute to the wiki this much in ONE SINGLE DAY! I am honestly both proud of your work and concerned for your fingers. At the rate you're going, I expect to see you up on the Wiki Cap nominations list some day soon. Keep on keeping on, friend! (and please get some rest) ♡ Cinnapoodle 🐩 ♡ ( ◡‿◡ *) ⊱✿⊰ Talk To Me! ⊱✿⊰ 02:52, 26 March 2024 (UTC)

I appreciate the kind words. It's my day off and I'm just doing my best. A wikicap would be cool for sure but I've only been editing for a month-ish so that's a ways out. I'm watching some Youtube and I'm just editing to keep myself busy. I get plenty of rest don't worry lol Mediarch User Mediarch PFP.pngTalkMy Edits 02:58, 26 March 2024 (UTC)

Wow. Just wow. I didn't think I'd be back so soon, but it seems you've got a real knack for workin' hard around these parts. It's not often people dedicate themselves to such an ambitious task with such little break time. Keep up the hard work, pardner.

Image Categories

Hello, when uploading item skin images like what you did with the Beaten and Bruised they were lacking categories, in future please use {{subst:isd}} for item skin images, thank you!

You've taken over the recent changes log, haha. Thanks for making sure all those pages used the templates specifically for that, very awesome. You're cool.

Suggestion for bird crimes

Make a "medichievement" for it like slimeyboi did. Deliver the first one to swood for the bird box murder. (You left IRC so now it's on your suggestion page) Jh34ghu43gu (talk) 12:40, 2 May 2024 (UTC)

hmmm, it's an interesting thought. I see the vision, but I just don't think I should really be in the business of "awarding" bird criminals for their actions. If you run a red light the cop doesn't pull you over to congratulate you and give you a ribbon for the great crime you just did. I've given out a special mediachievement before and If I was going to do one for bird stuff I think it should be for positive bird actions.

Thanks for all the help by changing the Painted Variants templates from regular to full on non-English pages, as well by being quite quick in doing so. Lastly, thanks for doing that only on painted variants I'm / you are going to upload, as opposed of doing on all pages (English and from other languages) that doesn't have them ready for upload yet.

Assistance, bitte!

Howdy! I'm kind of new to the wiki and I would wanna ask if I could assist with the painted variant projects and other paints missing or needs updating! I would love to help out on this! KingK (talk) 14:10, 25 June 2024 (UTC)

Yeah you can definitely help with the paints. I don't think the wiki has an updated guide for it though (I should probably work on that). It's a pretty involved process. As far as I'm aware the model viewer still doesn't open after the 64bit update so you will need to do a couple things to get it working. That should get hlmv and hlmv++ working. If you load a model in hlmv++ and use these script files it should paint the cosmetic automatically and take images of each one. Then you need to convert each image to PNG and crop them. We use the Batch image manipulation plugin for GIMP so it can do them all in one go instead of doing each by hand. Once each image has been cropped and converted you can upload them to the wiki. If you are uploading the first version of an image you need to put {{subst:pid}} in the summary so it has the proper categories and everything. That's the short version and a basic overview of the process. I'll try to update the actual guide on the wiki. If you have any questions or encounter any problems let me know.
