Hello everyone!


You failed when editing the Block Tool page, because when you put the gallery in you forgot to put </gallery> after it ended, causing the {{WeaponsNav}} template and Weapons category to disappear from the page. Fixed it now though. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (talk) 12:42, 29 July 2013 (MDT) BoltActionBlue.png ♠--

That's what Wikis are all about. :) -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 10:01, 1 August 2013 (MDT)

Custom Match Rules

It would be nice if after you put all the game mode changeable rules in their articles that you put them in the Custom Match article :) --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (talk) 12:42, 29 July 2013 (MDT) BoltActionBlue.png ♠--

Will do. ^^ -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 09:07, 30 July 2013 (MDT)
By the way, to add, could you also put the game mode of the rule next to it when you add them in? That might be a useful addition. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (talk) 12:42, 29 July 2013 (MDT) BoltActionBlue.png ♠--
Yeah sounds good. -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 09:52, 30 July 2013 (MDT)
To make this easier I've taken out the rule bullet list and replaced it with a table with sections "Type/Game Mode" and "Name". --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (talk) 12:42, 29 July 2013 (MDT) BoltActionBlue.png ♠--

Great job.

You are doing a wonderful job keeping everything updated and looking nice. Keep it up, this wiki is doing great because of you.

Thank you! I want the wiki to be the best it can be, and to be a really helpful resource for AoS players. Thank you for all your help too. :) - Count (talk) 04:05, 23 July 2013 (MDT)

Computer Issues

Hey everyone, unfortunately I'm having some computer issues which means I'll be without my PC for the next few days. I'm continuing to make edits using my tablet, but as you can imagine this is far more time consuming than a computer with a mouse and keyboard! I'll have my PC back in action in the next few days and will be back to my usual amount of edits.

Thanks, Count (talk) 13:06, 24 July 2013 (MDT)

What is wrong with your PC? --Travas2 (talk) 13:56, 24 July 2013 (MDT)

Just had some issues with the graphics card, all sorted now. :) -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 08:48, 29 July 2013 (MDT)

Wiki Titles

I see that Sallythebutcher wants to give a few of the contributors rights to publish news and give them wiki titles on the official forum, do you have any word on this? I'm just curious if you have talked to her about this yet or not. --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 12:55, 3 August 2013 (MDT)

I've suggested that you, TntMatthew and Pauliux00 would be the best people to give a Wiki title but I haven't heard anything back (I'm not sure she's working this weekend), so I'm not sure how it's all going to work. -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 14:03, 3 August 2013 (MDT)

I was mostly just wondering if you had contacted her yet. Thank you for the info, and I greatly appreciate you suggesting me along with the others. Cheers. --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 14:13, 3 August 2013 (MDT)

No problem - your contributions have been really great. -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 14:23, 3 August 2013 (MDT)

Article Of The Month

I added a new 'contest', AOTM, and I was hoping you would be the one to choose the winner after each month. I have given the guidelines on the actual page, you will just have to pick one of the nominees for the award. If you don't want to do it, that is fine, I just wanted to make sure you are alright with it. :) --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 22:42, 22 August 2013 (MDT)

Nice idea. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (Talk) BoltActionBlue.png Wikiteam.png ♠-- 03:56, 23 August 2013 (MDT)
This is a great idea, thanks for implementing it. :) So the idea is that users can vote on nominated articles, and I 'make it official' and pick the winner once a consensus has been reached? -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 14:15, 24 August 2013 (MDT)
Well the idea was to have people pick possible articles, then have you pick one to be the AOTM, however, feel free to make any changes, just make sure you make changes notable on the talk page. --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 08:12, 25 August 2013 (MDT)
That's fine, just wanted to check. :) -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 20:50, 30 August 2013 (MDT)


Hey everyone, I apologise for my recent lack of activity. As you may already know, I've recently moved from England to Vancouver, Canada (arrived this morning). As you can imagine moving your life ~5,000 miles to a country you've never visited is pretty time consuming, so I've not been able to work as much on the Wiki as I'd like. I've certainly not forgotten about it though, and will be back editing properly once I've gotten settled in. Thanks. :) -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 20:50, 30 August 2013 (MDT)

It's alright. Looking forward to seeing you edit often again. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (♣Talk Page♣) BoltActionBlue.png Wiki Team ♠-- 12:01, 1 September 2013 (MDT)

Staff Page

Just created a page for the Wiki staff, feel free to edit your part and etc. If it's completed might submit for AotM--Links (talk) 12:46, 7 September 2013 (MDT)

Cool, I'll have a look. -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 16:41, 8 September 2013 (MDT)

Map of the Month

Hey, i've been making a new page called Map of the Month(Based on AOTM) and i wanted you to check it. I've made a new template:

--Links (talk) 03:39, 8 September 2013 (MDT)
I'll check it out now. :) -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 16:41, 8 September 2013 (MDT)


Hello i was wondering if you wanted the domain for free since im not going to be running the wiki again. If you are interested please email me at or send me a message here.--Links (talk) 03:47, 8 September 2013 (MDT)

I'll be in touch. :) -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 16:41, 8 September 2013 (MDT)

Doing a nice job with the spam + a suggestion

Just would like to point these things out:

  • You are doing a nice job shovelling the spam.
  • But User talk:Quitkey still exists.
  • It was a good idea making the whole wiki semi-protected. There's another wiki I'm on which gets vandalised pretty often because it allows non-registered users to edit it, but most people are able to shovel the spam pretty quickly

Now, my suggestion. My suggestion is that a padlock icon appears on the top-right of a protected page, similar to Wikipedia. While it's only a visual thing, I think it could be quite nice to have. For a concept, I decided to reuse an unused PNG file from my web browser and recolour it to gold:

--♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew - The Razorblood (♣Talk Page♣) BoltActionBlue.png ♠-- 12:06, 10 October 2013 (MDT)

Cheers. I'll get the captcha updated soon so they stop getting through at all. Whoops, missed that one. Just shoot me a message on Steam or something if it happens again. I think making is semi-protected strikes a good balance between keeping the Wiki easy to edit (creating an account only takes a few seconds), whilst cutting out the spam and vandalism and keeping a level of accountability.
Interesting idea. :) I'll look into it and see how difficult it'll be to implement. -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 16:45, 10 October 2013 (MDT)
Neat. I've made some new cons for four other protections, I can post the links for them if you like. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew - The Razorblood (♣Talk Page♣) BoltActionBlue.png ♠-- 04:34, 11 October 2013 (MDT)
Small edit: I've made {{Protection}} which would allow placing of a coloured padlock icon depending on the power. Syntax: {{Protection|power=(power)}}. Available powers are: full (gold), semi (grey), move (green), upload (purple), perma (red). Leaving the power field empty results in a white padlock. Haven't tested this yet, though. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew - The Razorblood (♣Talk Page♣) BoltActionBlue.png ♠-- 06:56, 11 October 2013 (MDT)

All hail the count XD

Something rather funny imo :P --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew - The Razorblood (♣Talk Page♣) BoltActionBlue.png ♠-- 09:24, 15 October 2013 (MDT)

XD Me and Old Flads were having a bit of a joke around on Twitter last night. He called me the All Seeing Wiki Lord, and I joked that I wondered if Sally could change my user title on the forums. Didn't expect to see that when I woke up. XD -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 09:38, 15 October 2013 (MDT)

Orange Name

Just for a quick question, on the Ace of Spades Steam Forums I've seen two posts by you and your name was orange there. Have you noticed this and do you know why? I'm a bit curious because I've never seen something like that before. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (♣Talk Page♣) BoltActionBlue.png ♠-- 13:09, 24 December 2013 (MST)

It's because I'm a moderator on the Ace of Spades Steam forums. I don't actually do any moderating, it's just so I have the permissions to schedule events for the official Ace of Spades Steam group should I choose to. :) -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 14:14, 24 December 2013 (MST)
Cool. I knew moderators have orange names in the discussions, although usually there's a silver star next to their name, and I didn't see said star so I didn't know. ;) --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (♣Talk Page♣) BoltActionBlue.png ♠-- 14:35, 24 December 2013 (MST)

Maintenance/Backup Notices

Hey Count, just letting you know that if you want, for the backup/maintenance messages you occasionally put in the community portal, you could use {{Notice box}} for stuff. Just an example of what you could do:

{{notice box 
 | style = border: 1px solid #56A2FF; background-color: #ADD2FF
 | width = 90%
 | align = center
 | image = Information.png
 | header = Header text (optional)
 | text = Main text - replace with a notice


Information.png Header text (optional)
Main text - replace with a notice

If you want to see a full documentation, you can go to the documentation page for the template. --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (♣TC♣) BoltActionBlue.png ♠-- 09:54, 12 January 2014 (MST)

Nice idea, I'll do this next time. ^^ -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 10:47, 12 January 2014 (MST)

April March Fools??

We apparently have an April Fools joke on March 31st.

Or am I being oblivious to time zones? --♠ MarksmanGreenHead.png TntMatthew (♣TC♣) BoltActionBlue.png ♠-- 10:34, 31 March 2014 (MDT)

It's April 1st in places like New Zealand. :D -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 10:39, 31 March 2014 (MDT) epic. --DeuceHeadBlue.png Travas2 (♠ Talk ♠) Spade.png 13:38, 31 March 2014 (MDT)

Poll changes

Thought I'd ask you about this. When I view a poll which I haven't voted on, I can't see the results any more. It used to be so I could see the results even if I hadn't voted. I think it's nice to see other people's opinions without having to have a say for myself, so I'm not really a fan of this change. Is it possible you can change it back to what it was before? --♠ TntMatthew Swords.png TntMatthew (♣TC♣) TntMatthew Swords.png ♠-- 13:53, 1 July 2014 (MDT)

Done. It got changed when I updated the polls extension and I forgot to change it back, sorry about that. -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 14:37, 1 July 2014 (MDT)

Summary fail XD

Count, that's the Map of the Month banner, not the World Cup banner. --♠ TntMatthew Swords.png TntMatthew (♣TC♣) TntMatthew Swords.png ♠-- 13:12, 10 July 2014 (MDT)

I know but you can't edit edit summaries. :< -- ZombieHead.png Count (My talk page) 14:30, 10 July 2014 (MDT)
MediaWiki needs to add this in the next update lol. --♠ TntMatthew Swords.png TntMatthew (♣TC♣) TntMatthew Swords.png ♠-- 00:12, 11 July 2014 (MDT)

Long time no see

Hey Count. It's been a while. How have you been?
