I appreciate you removing that silly "people rage toward heavies" strategy on the strategy pages. :) Just a word of thanks.-Rocket Ship BBQ 08:33, 8 October 2011 (PDT)

No problem! ^^ Zabidenu 08:37, 8 October 2011 (PDT)

What was wrong with the trivia I added for the Widowmaker? I thought that was very relevant and rather interesting to know Triplejx3

It's rather obvious that you can shoot many rounds with a weapon that uses metal as ammo and doesn't need reloading next to a dispenser Zabidenu 21:43, 16 October 2011 (PDT)

Painted images

Hey, like to say nice job on the images. Secondly when uploading them make sure you use {{subst:pid} (don't forget the 2nd } ). Also categorizing, They don't belong under Item skin images. Just letting you know for future references. Thanks. Ashes 17:24, 22 February 2013 (PST)

Thanks! And about the categories, yeah, I learnt that the hard way - I just quickly snagged the categories off the RED Batter's Helm image without thinking much. Thanks for the feedback. Zabidenu 17:34, 22 February 2013 (PST)

Infobox Images

Two in one day. lol anyways when adding infobox images no need to use {{subst:pid} as that is for painted previews. Manually add the license and categories. Ashes 18:30, 22 February 2013 (PST)

And two mistakes in one day as well. Haha, I'll keep this in mind. Thanks. Zabidenu 02:43, 23 February 2013 (PST)

About {{w:}} and w:

I think you don't need to do that by yourself, WindBOT will do that automatically after the page got edited by any user. Let's the bot do that pain work. User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 17:34, 8 March 2013 (PST)

I would suggest just leaving these templates alone. WindBOT automatically picks it up. Its low priority but it will still fix it in the near future. Ashes 02:32, 31 March 2013 (PDT)
okay Zabidenu 02:34, 31 March 2013 (PDT)

Model question

Regarding this image Captain Punch, i can't figure out how to switch the Fist of Steel to blue team color once i load the heavy robot into hlmv. Do it require color config. Please pm me when available. SuperNova123 03:17, 12 March 2013 (PDT)

Thanks, check out this result Image. By the way how do you get so smooth edges, i have both Paint.Net and GIMP as disposal. SuperNova123 08:18, 12 March 2013 (PDT)

I just want to point out that your work have more smooth edges then what i can achieve. By the way the function of the cubemap is coloring or related? SuperNova123 08:40, 12 March 2013 (PDT)

I was looking for the "Essential Accessories" socks for scout, but i can't figure out what hidden name it uses, do you know someone that might know the correct model name? SuperNova123 03:17, 13 March 2013 (PDT)

I downloaded the CS6 - 30 days trail version. Can you please share the Refine Edge settings with me. SuperNova123 13:15, 16 March 2013 (PDT)

Using the magic wand is no issue but the Refine Edge tool is like a maze for new users to find the correct values. SuperNova123 08:18, 20 March 2013 (PDT)

Thanks for sharing the values with me, as you suggested i did that three times and come up with this as result Image. Some minor tweaks need to be done for removing these pixels around the border, its easily visible. What do you mean by eyecolor? SuperNova123 09:02, 20 March 2013 (PDT)

I switched the default (grey) background color to white and the final result was better. But there is four different options to choise colors in HLMV. Background, Ground, Light and Ambient color. Which of these do you recommend to edit. CTRL + Left mouse button let me adjust the lighting angle by manual. Tyrant's Helm SuperNova123 02:50, 22 March 2013 (PDT)

Picture Question

Excuse me, I am kind of new to this wiki and I really want to add images of the robots (Heavy Mittens, Giant Demoknight) in the way that you do where they all have the same pose but with different items and everything. Can you show me please? :3 I am REALLY anxious to help with those robot pics ;w;

Small request

Heyo. Nicely done on the /fi translations. I have a small request.

This is a list of Wanted categories. If you could please translate all the /fi ones that would be great. Thanks :D Ashes 15:43, 8 May 2013 (PDT)

Thanks! :3 I'll look into it. Zabidenu 15:45, 8 May 2013 (PDT)

Done! In case you have more requests like this, feel free to tell me. Zabidenu 16:08, 8 May 2013 (PDT) Danke :D Ashes 16:26, 8 May 2013 (PDT)

Jos et ole vielä huomannut, TF2:seen on lisätty Konehanskalle nimi: Kunnioittamaton Robohanska jonka korjasin. Hospappa 13:41, 24 June 2013 (PDT)

Blue Rogue's Brogues Image

Hey, Zabidenu, is it possible for you to do a blue image for the Rogue's Brogues? I was going over the new items earlier, and I noticed that you didn't create one. If there's a chance you can that, it'd be great. --Omolong (talk) 18:20, 18 July 2013 (PDT)

I'm confused..

I'm new to wikis. and i'm unsure of how to use them... I also thought that Saxton Hale was an "OFFICIAL" character.. I didn't know the responses/etc were unofficial.. Look. I'm sorry..

Sorry about that last undo; I had a brain fart. I looked at what Mr.Cti added and what he removed, and got the two mixed up. Somehow. I ain't that bright, if you haven't noticed already. --ICantThinkOfName (talk) 14:56, 28 November 2013 (PST)

About the Colonel's Coat page

I appreciate you helping me edit the Colonel's Coat page (by editing Pitch's inventory link to the current backpack link format. They forgot to add his name.). However, the link doesn't seem to work. KirjiroSenzuki (talk) 04:11, 10 February 2014 (PST)

It will work eventually - the dictionary (where the Steam IDs are added) works using a bot, and it takes a while for it to push the changes. Just wait for a bit and the link should work fine! User Zabidenu sig.png (contribstalk) 04:13, 10 February 2014 (PST)

About crosshair cursor in TF2TightRope page.

Apologies for the undo. It showed up to me as a 'bot edit', instead of a human. There was also no description of why the change was made.

I didn't realise there would be an issue, with making the cursor change to a crosshair when hovering over the sniper related area. Could you explain to me more as to why I should not do things like this? Is it a layout consistency rule, or something? I am not that great with wiki editing, so I am happy to learn from my mistakes. CoolJosh3k (talk) 02:04, 19 February 2014 (PST)

First of all, thanks for leaving a message first, saving us an edit war. *sigh of relief*
And yeah, it's indeed a layout consistency thing. There's no real reason to have a special cursor for just one cell - it's much neater to have it all consistent. User Zabidenu sig.png (contribstalk) 02:08, 19 February 2014 (PST)
Okay. I added that a long while ago, as a fun little Easter Egg. Figured some readers who saw it would get a smile. Oh well, lesson learned. CoolJosh3k (talk) 02:11, 19 February 2014 (PST)

Is it Weird?

Is it just me or do I always want to pronounce your name "Zabidabadoo" because... I always do. I'm sorry! :'S --A Blueberry Muffin 20:33, 21 February 2014 (PST)

Howdy. It seems you got a signature, like other members have it as well. I would like to make a signature for me, but what type of coding is used on the signature area? I just know where to edit my signature (which is in Preferences). Is there any Special Page (like the userboxes) for the format of a signature code? Thanks.
