Hello StarCraft Wiki Community![edit source]
Hello everyone, you may have seen me around fiddling with stuff. I think today is a good day to say hello and so here I am. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 23:43, September 14, 2010 (UTC)
Lurker, Medic, Dark archon[edit source]
Well, Mr. Zeta1127,89thLegion (you don't mind if I just call you "ZetaLegion", don't you?), the Lurker, Medic and Dark archon will be added in Heart of the Swarm, as well as the "Devour"(as they know call it, thought they may change it into the "Devourer), something like a valkyrie and another unit for the protoss. So, don't be irritated for too long! -- Andra2404 !WARNING! Badge collector !WARNING! 12:03, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
- Zeta, Zeta1127, or ZetaLegion will do just fine. I hope so, because the Zerg are in a bad place right now from what I have heard. Overlap like what has happened with the Firebat/Hellion and Lurker/Baneling/Roach (the latter isn't really much of an overlap if one thinks about it) is often unavoidable. There is no lore reason, other than Ulrezaj being the last Dark Archon, for the loss of the Dark Archon, because they need it now more than ever. Now if only I could just get Wings of Liberty and a slightly better computer, I could give a better opinion on the matter. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 17:09, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
- Well, in HotS, Zerg get lurker & devourer (currently called "devour", which will be anti-air units), the Terran get medic & a valkyrie-like anti-air unit which will "complete a terran player's banshee army", and the Protoss get dark archon, as "the protoss had to few spellcasters", and another unit. read it all here!-- Andra2404 !WARNING! Badge collector !WARNING! 17:16, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
- Now they see the holes in the Zerg tech tree? I would have seen them from day one if I had been keeping track of WoL development as it was happening. I would wait for Medivacs to be majorly aggressive too or do the old original StarCraft mass marines routine. Not much to say on the return of the Dark Archon, other than it is needed. Now I must say that almost could have been pulled from a Brood War preview. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 17:29, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
- And so it was an April Fool's joke, would really be nice if it was true. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 17:39, September 17, 2010 (UTC)
- The date is something to watch very closely. I immediately got a feeling of déjà vu by reading that, and I didn't even read the responses and date until later. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 19:24, September 17, 2010 (UTC)
Hey, Zeta. As far as the queen's disambiguation box thing goes, couldn't we use the "new one" and just uncheck the lore option? I saw a Queen entry on the search drop-down menu, so I thought a lore article existed, but even without it, all the other SC I & II mirrored units seem to take the new box. -- Techpriest88 21:58, October 5, 2010 (UTC)
- Not using the lore option may be a good idea, but the two versions are vastly different. The way it has been has worked so far. Are we planning on having separate pages for each unit for lore and gameplay for every game? I noticed many lore and gameplay pages have been split recently. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 22:15, October 5, 2010 (UTC)
Unusual Problem[edit source]
An internet search box keeps replacing the content when I try to edit pages on wikis with the rich text editor. What should I do, fortunately I am not having this problem here. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 15:24, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
- Is this happening when you're typing in on-site links? If so, that can be disabled in your preferences under the "editing" tab. Otherwise, if it's giving you wierd off-site searches, you might want to scan your compy for adware, as that sounds like something it might cause. -- Techpriest88 20:51, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
- Certainly sounds like it. -- Techpriest88 20:58, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
- I've never seen this problem before, but I turned off the Rick Text Editor for my computer. Actually, I thought it was now turned off by default on this wiki. I hope the upcoming changes later this month don't impose it. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 22:33, October 8, 2010 (UTC)
- I hope the new skin doesn't happen, because so many people don't like it, me included. I turned of Rich Text Editor. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 03:17, October 9, 2010 (UTC)
- I had to switch to the new look, Monaco is messed up for me, and I am not very happy. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 23:14, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
- As soon as you figure this mess out, tell me. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 23:48, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
- Switching didn't work. According to the Wikia staff blog, something happened to strip out the CSS ... insert technobabble here. In short, it's screwed up. Apparently they're trying to fix it. I'm currently "enjoying" the new look. I see why they're getting rid of the sidebar; while I like it, it's incompatible with the new skin. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 23:54, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
- I totally agree, the new topbar is a good idea, and the userpages are a mess. It is a little too much. I am probably familiar with that technobabble, I have some web design under my belt, I am familiar with CSS. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 00:02, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
- The problem has returned, CSS is being stripped again. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 22:27, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
- They talk about it here, specifically "Hi all - Monaco is currently experiencing some issues in which CSS is being stripped, which causes the pages to look broken. We're working on resolving this issue ASAP and Monaco will not remain looking like this - don't worry. Please also note that the blog is not the place to report these types of issues, if you're seeing something that looks broken the best thing to do is report it at Special:Contact or in the public IRC channel." PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 00:19, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
- Why does the new look have horizontal margins, it scarcely takes up half of the screen on a wide-screen monitor? I don't have a clue were too post such a comment. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 22:15, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
- They fixed the width, so at least template boxes won't get smushed on some screens, but assumed everyone has tiny monitors. I hear they widened it, so now those with tiny monitors will have to use scrollbars.
- If only they weren't forcing this new look on us, I could probably live with it. I don't have a wide-screen monitor, I just happen to have them at school and went there during the Monaco problems. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 22:57, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
Kunsip Makto[edit source]
Can't you just blocked him and deny his right to edit the talk page?--El_Nazgir 18:49, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
- Yes, will do, though he is probably going to end up banned. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 20:44, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
- What's the situation with him? I've just noticed him adding a bunch of (totally useless) "StarCraft 2 only" categories to everything. I take it he's being more troublesome still? -- Techpriest88 21:18, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
- He added those categories as you saw, I reverted few, then told him to stop adding it and gave him reason why on his talk page. Then he continued to add it and said something on his talk page without signing. I continued to revert them and then Hawki and PSH berated him on his talk page and he started getting nasty and deleting what we wrote. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 21:30, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
- So the new guy thinks he owns the place... I hope the ban falls swiftly. -- Techpriest88 23:03, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
- I was fully expecting that, between continuing to add the category after I gave him an explanation, the warnings, and the insults, this is the right thing to do. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 23:09, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
Hyperion's Lab Upgrade Templates[edit source]
I am trying to edit the templates PSH just made, but it isn't working. My changes aren't showing on the articles. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 00:09, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
It's the job queue. Sometimes changes just don't show up immediately; it has to do with coding speed and some other computer stuff. For instance, I just editing MediaWiki.css to bold level 4 and 5 headings, but that's not visible to me yet. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 00:50, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
Perdition turret[edit source]
Firstly, I know that's not how you reference. I'm not saying I'm right to do it that way; I was being lazy. However, that doesn't mean you should just revert it. I will try to reference in the future, however. Secondly, my evidence is not that you can walk over it. Read the talk page; play the levels. You cannot see the turrets until they start shooting you. Engine of Destruction is, in particular, a good example as they show up very early on.--RandomguY 06:33, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
- I can't test any of this and besides you didn't edit the supply depot page to reflect that so please leave it alone until someone else can confirm it. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 06:36, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
- I know this isn't hard evidence, but see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDjJvtu2vtw&feature=watch_response_rev .Skip to approximately 12:25. I know the video doesn't explicitly say it's a Perdition turret, but it's clearly what it is by look and effect.--RandomguY 06:44, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
- That actually hurts your case, the turrets didn't appear to be in the Raider infantry's line of sight and range until they deployed. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 07:02, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
- The marines are right next to the turrets, laterally, and they were all visible. Additionally, they were all in firing range (proven: 12:28; even if you don't catch the marine firing one shot, they were in Tychus's range, and the marines were right behind him), so it's impossible for them to just be visible, and have the turrets out of line-of-sight due a potential slightly greater distance. Apart from that, you can't use the range argument because marines don't actually outrange turrets.--RandomguY 23:17, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Marines and Tychus both have 5 range, Perdition turrets only have 4 range, so I can use the range argument. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 23:40, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Darn, I misread. Still, it's unlikely that you can shoot it but you can't see it until it pops up, as it would be the only unit in the game, and as I said the turrets are clearly in visual range. Certainly, if Perdition turrets do have 4 range, and for some reason I remember them as having 5, I doubt that Tychus will walk into them and be shot. AI units don't do that.--RandomguY 06:09, November 10, 2010 (UTC)
- Nevermind, they have 4 range. Ignore the relevant clause in that sentence, please.-RandomguY 06:32, November 10, 2010 (UTC)
- So what's the verdict? Wait for confirmation, continue discussion, scrap the whole thing, or make the changes?--RandomguY 04:54, November 13, 2010 (UTC)
- I tested this out. I built a Perdition turret under a mutalisk in Haven's Fall and it didn't attack it. It is also confirmed by the fact that Glaive wurms don't bounce on burrowed turrets (I tested that out too).Wil1 23:11, December 8, 2010 (UTC)
Cross-Wiki Vandal Blocked[edit source]
Three years ago, the StarCraft Wiki and others were attacked by a cross-wiki vandal and spammer. He attempted to evade blocks by using multiple accounts. Since the vandalization was a "slow trickle", usually each account would only be blocked for a few months, so he'd rotate, but eventually he couldn't control himself and got all his accounts blocked, at which point he started harassing various users at other wikis. Eventually Wikia took the unusual step of subjecting him to a regex block (which means blocked across all wikis).
And of course he keeps trying to come back using various accounts. I just blocked one. It probably looks excessive given that particular account's history, but it's taking into account previous actions as well.
I'll check all those edits of his. Sorry I haven't been around lately; work just got horribly busy again. (I had to start at 8 AM, and a project due at noon wasn't finished by day's end too.)
I have been checking the pages I follow, but I wanted a second opinion before I go doing something like that. I know that busy feeling, I only got done with my finals less than a week ago. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 03:21, December 21, 2010 (UTC)

How does one become an admin?[edit source]
I am already an admin here, but I want to know where one would go to request to be an admin when the current admins on a wiki are inactive. I was asked here, which is why I don't know. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 23:29, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
There's a request a wiki form at Community Central Wikia. As for me, I'm not particularly active right now, but I should be much more next week when Ghost Academy 3 comes out. (Some people have it already, but it's not available to me until next Wednesday.) PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 23:34, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
The admins on Homeworld Wiki and Sins of a Solar Empire Wiki are basically inactive and I have done a lot of good on both, but I think I could do more good as an admin. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 23:54, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
APM spam[edit source]
New Wikia feature - Chat[edit source]
Hi! I'm Mark, from Wikia's Content Team. I'm excited to announce a brand-new Wikia feature - the Chat. The chat has been available for a while in beta, but it was recently added to WikiaLabs, meaning that any local sysop can activate the feature on their wiki! The chat is an excellent way to communicate with less experienced editors and new visitors to the wiki, without having to explain the process of editing entirely using talk pages. In addition to that, the chat also allows you to discuss news about the game easily without having to renew a page all the time waiting for the new messages bubble. Just to be clear, Wikia is not forcing this feature on any wiki, it's completely optional. However, we do recommend the feature as it'll only make editing easier, and attract more editors to the wiki. To activate the feature, visit Special:WikiaLabs and activate the chat. If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to leave me a message on my talk page! Cheers, Mark (talk) 22:48, July 12, 2011 (UTC)
The zerg article[edit source]
I dont get why this got sent double.
Hello, i would like to know the reason why the paragraph i just added into the physiology section in Zerg article got deleted. What did i do wrong? Edit: Nvm, noticed it got moved.
- I don't delete stuff without a good reason, though I would ask that you only capitalize things like the faction names at the beginning of sentences. It probably ended up as a double post because you just left a new message again instead of editing the section. Also, please sign your posts with four tildes. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 16:28, August 4, 2011 (UTC)
- It is easy to forget that, just helping. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 00:28, August 9, 2011 (UTC)
Zerg Breeds[edit source]
Please see the talk page for the template. If you want to edit, I'd rather the issues be discussed first before more edits are made.--Hawki 23:22, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with your overseer reasoning, though added my own in a sense. Full details are back on its talk page.--Hawki 23:57, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
Wiki Error[edit source]
Does anyone know why I keep getting an error prompt lately that says,
Warning: Unresponsive script
A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.
virtually every time I attempt to conduct an edit, because it sometimes prevents me from publishing if I cancel the script. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 00:11, September 30, 2011 (UTC)
- No, that error isn't affecting me. I hope it's not common. I would try Special: Contact as they're the experts there. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 00:20, September 30, 2011 (UTC)
Search and Link Suggestions Problem[edit source]
I have a question on Wiki Community Central Admin Forum concerning Sins of a Solar Empire Wiki and no one has responded, so I was hoping someone here might be able to help. There is similar problem mentioned in another thread in Technical Help that looks like it might be the same problem I am having, but the problem is Special:Contact/general doesn't seem to be available from my wiki. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 23:58, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
- They wrecked it. See here. There's an individual fix, but they took the fix off this wiki. Lame. PSH aka Kimera 757 (talk) contribs) 00:37, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
- Lovely, now they disabled search and link suggestions to try to fix their own mistake by releasing this change prematurely, really lame. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 05:02, May 23, 2012 (UTC)
User page[edit source]
Given that there are now over 450 links in your favourite pages list, I am thinking that it has gone far beyond what might be considered appropriate for a user page. Even more so given you have placeholders for articles that don't exist.
- You must not have seen my Wookieepedia user page yet, no one has ever called me out on that one, or any of my user pages before. Zeta1127 of the 89th Legion (talk) 03:57, March 13, 2013 (UTC)
- Yes, your Wookieepedia page is just crazy; 100kB for a user page? This is not something to be encouraged. There's also something fishy with listing non-existent pages.
