Hey Frozen! It's Denji, previously a sysop for PDB back when it was owned by U4dandy. Would like to have sysop rights again if at all possible. Thanks! -- Denji (talk) 15:51, 12 September 2013 (MST)

oh okay that makes sense edit: wait a sec there's no time tag or anything, do I add those myself - Ed

Hey, I'm having trouble accessing the website. It's telling me "server not found", but when browsed through a proxy the site loads up just fine. What's going on? - Ed

Can you give me a ping on CrypticChat when you get this, please? Destructor (talk) 17:54, 1 October 2013 (MST)

Did you happen to get a hold of him yet? If not, shoot me an e-mail as well~ (Not to mention we mods should have better contact info to contact and co-ordinate!) --Δ Epelesker (talk) 10:49, 2 October 2013 (MST)

Thanks for fixing the cats on iRun Man :D was going to come back and check what actual categories were as page not finished yet Liath

Hey! Thanks for porting over my pages from the old PDB! I'm so happy they're still around! - BlackWolfe (talk) 22:26, 19 October 2013 (MST)

Re: your question about Hooverou. He's a different user from what I remember. However, I did block Wizzy again from a new account just now. --Δ Epelesker (talk) 11:29, 2 November 2013 (MST)

I think they made another account, I think it's "Wiz". -- @leroyswish (Talk) 15:03, 3 October 2013
I think they also made another account: Wizz.

Hi FrozenViolet! Got a bit of nostalgia and looked around, and I noticed you ported The Peacemaker over from the old PDB, and not a single thing missing. Saved me that trouble and losing all that work, and that was very kind of you. You have my deep gratitude! Astrosimi (talk) 20:44, 22 February 2014 (MST)

Thank you very much for all the work you are doing in relocating all our old Delta pages and info. Vitality (talk) 08:52, 11 March 2014 (MST)

Broken Links seem to be related to missing files and missing pages - a lot of these may be down to typos and transposition errors, some may be pages that havent been moved from old primus site but are linked on pages that have moved. Special:WantedFiles seems like a good place to start as there are only 370 errors on it. Special:WantedPages is a bit tougher there are more - but glancing at first page it may be that people have inadvertently put [ ] around names and these are creating the problem. 08:43, 21 March 2014 (MST)

additional just went through a bunch of pages in "boken links" category - All Star stories and added a category and they disappeared from the broken links. It may be a database indexing issue that is fixed by resaving the pages in a lot of cases. I will do some googling and see if its a common thing Liath (talk) 08:51, 21 March 2014 (MST)
Think i have found it - seems to be an inherent issue with mediawiki but there is a fix - we may have to get User:Destructor to arrange it though.
Example Issue
Instructions for RebuildAll.php Liath (talk) 09:00, 21 March 2014 (MST)

Thanks for taking on the flags ;D I think its a nice little addition to the site and adds a professional look -- Liath (talk) 14:11, 26 March 2014 (MST)

Fixed Captain Adamant. For the pages with the messed up formatting which cause the odd display issue on the category footer etc, the easiest way I found of looking for and fixing it is to cut each individual section from the page onto a new page - e.g TestPage and preview them in turn to see where the issue is appearing and then look to see what it is - usually it's that they have forgotten to close an html tag they have opened e.g every <div> must have a </div> Quite often if they are using the profile template they have simply deleted the closing div statements at the very bottom of the page. -- Liath (talk) 17:17, 31 March 2014 (MST)

Ive never had CORP added automatically. I can only presume its the template they are copying to create their pages. -- Liath (talk) 08:59, 23 April 2014 (MST)

my @Liath category is in the < noinclude> section of the templates so doesn't get pulled through when the template is used, only on the template page itself.

Fixed. Unfortunately I havent found anything to parse mediawiki code. You can check the whole webpage at W3C but that doesnt really work for mediawiki sections. Only way is to go through the code checking that every open div has a /div. In this instance I actually recoded a whole lot of the page to remove/replace divs with span as they were simply for text coloring. -- Liath (talk) 15:50, 19 May 2014 (MST)

heya - just wondering why you reverted the prosthetics category change - the reason i made it was to clean up the initial category listing (as i have been doing over the last couple of weeks) so as there isnt a huge daunting list at first glance, but categories can still be found by browsing. -- Liath (talk) 14:00, 23 May 2014 (MST)

ah ok :D thought i had messed up something you had been doing before :D Liath (talk) 14:29, 23 May 2014 (MST)

Ey :3

Seems like your work is incredibly inspirational. I ganked your Navigation menus and now I was inspired by one more thing... Specifically a costume you have on Corrosia. The Shephard outfit was amazing. I would have used the Barbarian one too but I don't think I'm able to replicate that one. Either way, hope you don't mind :3--User:Zydrate 18:16, 14 November 2013 (MST)

Hello ForzenViolet! You will have to forgive my very late reply and thanks for your compliment on the discussion page of Kahi. It was months ago, I just never thought to look and check that page. I wanted to thank you and all the other moderators for everything that you do for this community; having a place to put all of these random thoughts and stories is wonderful, so thank you for this space. I am very happy you liked Kahi's page, though I have added and subtracted more since then! -- Ouroboros1988 10:38, 10/10/2014 (GMT). (PS-- Second edit was to move my comment to the correct place at the bottom of this discussion page. 'Cause I derped. :D)
Fixed Choc Chip Italics - opening ''''' formatting tags but no corresponding close in section headers (the ones with the images) 17:00, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Bolt Thrower

Hey there. I'm hoping that this will reach the player called Platinum Fatale from early Champions online. I played Bolt Thrower back in the day. Really miss quality Rp. If this is you please say hi.

Do you still have access to the old PDB site, or is that all lost at this point? Vitality (talk) 13:03, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
