Categories on redirect pages

I just noticed that the software upgrade has led to redirect pages appearing in categories. This is "correct" behaviour insofar as they do have [[Category:X]] in them, but bad because it's spamming up the list with unimportant entries. I'd like to see them hidden again...what do you think? --TomEdwards 19:23, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Interesting, I had not noticed this, but it makes sense. This is more of a new feature than a bug since the redirects actually have category tags in them. The category index is similar to the index of a book, so in this particular case, I think it is appropriate that the redirect titles that are unique parameters (such as $basetexturenoenvmap) are in the category index. The redirects that are duplicates of other entries clearly added only for search purposes ($detail alpha mask base texture) should definitely not have category tags. And the remaining ones in the $ section could get category tags parameters added so they are correctly alphabetized. --JeffLane 01:05, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Bugged pages when past a certain length

On the List of L4D Models page, it goes into blank space past "props_rooftop\acvent03.mdl" (ctrl+f and paste to hop to it) for some reason - but when you edit the page you can see the content past that still exists, just for some reason the wiki isn't showing it

Wikipedia doesn't have this problem dunno if it's a known bug or what, thought you should know --Wikikitty 19:34, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Left 4 Dead: Survival

Hi Jeff, it's me again. If you don't mind me asking, what makes the game think that a certain map is survival map? I've been inspecting the Last Stand map for the last 3 hours and couldn't find anything that would indicate this. --Baliame (talk) 20:28, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

I assume it's set with the mp_gamemode now. Before loading the map, it is set to survival. For the current maps that have survial modes on them, they have some hand-written lump which adds any Survival unique entities. --Remmiz 21:51, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, that would explain it all, however, if gamemode is only settable prior to map start, it would be impossible, or rather dodgy to set it up in the map file only :( --Baliame (talk) 14:29, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
To make a Survival map all you really need to do is like maybe make a map specific config changing the gamemode, and use a panic event to start the timer. --''JakeB'' 20:01, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Deletion party

Holy crap you had a little deletion party on the 19th. Well, at least you removed all the useless stuff ;) --Sbrown 22:37, 25 June 2009 (UTC)


I've made a visual version of otherlang, which has been possible since Mediawiki added link= support to images. But there's a problem that stops it from working on translated pages. Can you see a solution to this from the admin side? --TomEdwards 20:18, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Bad french translation

Dears Jeff

A whole french community has been spammed on their forum board by the Wiki user

But it's like a teenager editing.

Some times he simply copy/past english without translating. Some times he's introduce mistake in the process. Every time it's full of language error.

Most of us like Nyko18 (Portal Prelude and I hate Moutain) and Kirumi (Another good french level Designer) Have tried to edit him work and tried to talk with him without success.

He reply by deleting their editing, injure, or children sentence "Gna I make it frist, mine ti is!! Naa y'r late ur nab!" (Of course I use him spelling when he trying to say:) "Well I have done it first, So it's mine now and your are weak, sorry!"

Best Regards, Gectou4 From French Level deisgn Community

Sorry pls stop spam, I don't know kirumi, and you. Stop. But this user is too a spammer he write that on the article Creating a dynamic light:fr :
[NOTE POUR L'AUTEUR] Si tu jouais avec les commentaires en mode developpeur, tu serais un peu moins ignorant et tu éviterais de répandre tes bétises par le biais de """"tuto""""
Mais bon sang, tu vois pas que tu dis de la merde ? on his discussion page.

Here is not a children wars, stop that pls. I ask Administrator to stop GECTOU and KIRUMI. Thx. Anarkia777

Could all of you please stop this? Judging by your childish acts, neither of you are capable of discussing and solving this issue yourselves, so just let it go and let Jeff decide what's best. Solokiller 11:03, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

I agree. But as I said on my discussion page, I just reproach Anarkia to post false information about lighting entities.
And, to prevent this, I only deleted the false parts. By example, the part (1 sentence) where he said that Episode 1 don't use any Dynamical lighting.
kirumi 13:13, 24 July 2009
Our Aplogies to the whole VDC, we've got spammed too, we have already trying to talk, but like you said it's turn like childish acts. It's like talking to a wall. he's vandalisme everything, got a ban, then create a new account and do it again. Now he do it on the wiki. that's enough. We can no longer supports this anymore.
Once again, our most sincere apologies about this .--Gectou4 11:35, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
PS : It's ok for Kirumi I speaked with him. Thx. Anarkia777.
