Hey, about the image we both submitted at the same time I didn't revert yours because I wanted mine, yours showed selecting info_player_start instead of info_player_deathmatch --Omnicoder 22:27, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

I wanted to revert mine anyway :) --Barracuda 22:50, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Template Category

Do you have any reasoning for removing templates from the template category? EDIT: Nevermind, I see what you did there. Thanks. Thelonesoldier 22:39, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Ah, you were faster with your edit. Well, that's what I was going to say: They're not removed from the category entirely, but rather automatically moved into the sub-category Category:Notice templates through Template:Messagebox/start. I feel that this is really necessary, because most of these templates are using different HTML/CSS markups, which causes redundancy and an inconsistent look & feel. And a generic all-in-one template category isn't very helpful IMHO. --Barracuda 22:48, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I get it and agree. I just thought putting some of the more common templates in a category was better than having none of them categorized at all, but being more specific is better. Thelonesoldier 00:01, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
I love the new Messagebox template you've created (and/or imported) and integrated with existing message templates. Good work! —Mattshu 07:03, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! It was about time to get rid of these old HTML-templates :) --Barracuda 11:00, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

"Category Spam"?

I categorized some pages, and you reverted those edits, citing "category spam"; what exactly does that mean? Are you contesting that those page do not in fact belong in those categories? Please explain. --Nick Davidowicz 14:54, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

These pages had too many nested categories. For example, Category:Portal 2 Level Design Tutorials is now a subcategory of Category:Level Design Tutorials and Category:Portal 2 Level Design, the latter again is a subcategory of Category:Portal 2. Adding a page to every one of these categories and not just to the "highest" subcategory is in conflict to the purpose of subcategories (see Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Categorization). This wiki already has a very bad utilization of categories, just have a look at Category:Tutorials for example, it's a mess! --Barracuda 16:42, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Alright, how about just using Category:Portal 2 Level Design and Category:Tutorials instead of Category:Portal 2 Level Design Tutorials? --Nick 17:36, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Category:Tutorials already has too many game-specific tutorials, we definitely need a subcategory for Portal 2. But how about Category:Portal 2 Tutorials and Category:Portal 2 Level Design? --Barracuda 17:41, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Yeah I think that's probably best.--Nick D. 18:01, 28 April 2011 (UTC)


I am just here to say that I appreciate your work on the portal 2 related pages. Keep up the good work!--Henke37 22:26, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, you're doing a great job, too! Still, there's a lot of work to do... --Barracuda 23:21, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Template problem

I think I remember you making a lot of formatting changes to templates recently. If so, maybe you could figure this out: I added a numbered list to Template:Deletemod and it somehow introduced line breaks and an apostrophe after the numbered list. I can usually figure out this kind of thing but this one has me stumped. Any idea how to fix that apostrophe? Thelonesoldier 23:15, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Ok... I'm not sure about the exact reason for this problem, but I was able to fix it in Template:Delete. --Barracuda 05:59, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
Nice, thanks! Thelonesoldier 11:06, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Global_ents.vmf =

Excellent job on the table layout! I pretty much just compiled the information and stuck it on, so that's much better. --JZ Bradley 06:16, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
