Can anyone work on the templates for the Main Page? That would be a grand help. Thanks.

Hey I was thinking about creating a page in german... exist's that yet? UserGordon Freeman|Gordon Freeman 1555, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Removed the "Create New Page" whotsit.  There's been a glut of useless new pages that we can't even delete until we get the current admin back online. UserComing Second|Coming Second 1616, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

We seem to be suffering from a number of technical problems recently, the most annoying of which is the "GNU FDL Free Doc License" bar appearing right in the middle of the longer articles.  AlsoSkyrim is a vast region set in the northern part of old Tamriel. It is the home of the Nords, large and hardy men and women who have a strong resistance to frost, both natural and magical. It is bordered by Morrowind to the east, Cyrodiil to the south, Hammerfell to the southwest, and High Rock to the west; the island of Solstheim lies to the northeast of Skyrim. , I cannot seem to start new topics or comment on changes (which is why I'm querying this here and not in the forum).  Is this a) just something I'm suffering from, b) a wider problem suffered by more wikis, c) a local problem and is it d) fixable? UserComing Second|Coming Second 1344, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Who deleted the "Ambiguously Canon" template? It doesn't seem to work anymore. SpecialContributions/71.245.76.111|71.245.76.111 1741, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

The "Ambiguously Canon" issue is no more on this wiki. See Gearbox Software of the Half-Life expansions. UserKlow|Klow 2225, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

== Main Page design ==

Hullo! I'm Kirkburn, a Wikia Gaming Helper, and I have a note to make regarding the Main Page. You may be interested in stealing some code/links from the wcstarter|Wikia Starter wiki which is the current new wiki base design. Keep up the great work! wUserKirkburn|Kirkburn (wUser_talkKirkburn|talk) 1316, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

== Main page layout ==

Hello! I've been working on an important update to the main page layout which you can see on UserKirkburn/Dev. You can find out more about why it's so important on User talkKirkburn/Dev. Does anyone have any views or opinions on it? The colour scheme and content can be changed, if so wished. wUserKirkburn|Kirkburn (wUser_talkKirkburn|talk) 1605, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

 I've updated the design to more closely resemble the current main page - though it is a little more colourful (which can be toned down if so wished). wUserKirkburn|Kirkburn (wUser_talkKirkburn|talk) 2257, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

 This update needs to go live soon - if there are no objections, I would like to put it live before the end of the week. wUserKirkburn|Kirkburn (wUser_talkKirkburn|talk) 1124, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

 I've made more tweaks and put it live - it has everything from the original, plus a little bit more. wUserKirkburn|Kirkburn (wUser_talkKirkburn|talk) 0940, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

== What's with the main page? ==

Seriously, I like the Cake Wiki concept, but some stuff on the main sounds like fanon and bias (even if it were true, we still don't allow that kind of stuff on wikia. Plus, Mr. Main is messy too. UserBaker78|Baker78 0034, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
We've decided to take the Wiki in a new direction, we weren't happy with the last layout, it was in need of reform. We think the new page much better reflects what we do. The admins are quite happy. - UserHalo-343|Halo-343 0044, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
The layout is fine, get rid of the bias and grammar and spelling errors. UserBaker78|Baker78 0110, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
NO! As the newest admin, you are banned FOR-EV-ER! UserBig McLargeHuge|Big McLargeHuge 0335, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
That's not rational. I'm trying to make a suggestion, and you retaliate like this? 0_0 UserBaker78|Baker78 0344, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
March 32nd is my favorite day of the year. As Bill in L4D would say, "You ''ARE'' an idiot!" UserBig McLargeHuge|Big McLargeHuge 0350, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

The new main page and logo a PREFECT! They wil STAY!1!1! UserKlow|Klow 1107, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

== New Icon ==

Who's the dumbass who changed the site logo to "Cake Wiki"? This new picture had horrible quality and the site is called "Combine Overwiki". It does not fit well (that's what she said). Someone should change it back! NOW!
 Because yelling on the internet will get what you want.

== Question ==

"Did you know that Striders were to be assaulted by the player and being taken their gun after being defeated?"
...What? --SpecialContributions/99.155.146.134|99.155.146.134 2158, April 22, 2010 (UTC)
I can rewrite it, if you want. In the Beta, you can "ride" it and take its gun for you after kill it. See the Strider article for more info. UserKlow|Klow 0730, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

== What the? ==

Who was the idiot who slapped the Halo ad onto the main area? Get rid of it now.--UserFlareKitsune|FlareKitsune 1558, April 28, 2010 (UTC)
Could you avoid calling us names? Wikia manages the ugly ads, we cannot move, change or remove them. UserKlow|Klow 1150, April 29, 2010 (UTC)

==Alien Swarm Wiki==
There seems to be a mistake in your VWN section. Swarm Hub is not the Alien Swarm Wiki it is a totally independent English and Russian language website at http//wiki.swarmhub.net/wiki/Main_Page wiki.swarmhub.net, the real Alien Swarm Wiki is at http//alienswarm.wikia.com/wiki/Alien_Swarm_Wiki alienswarm.wikia.com. It is hosted on Wikia. --UserBasique|Basique 1307, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

It's not a mistake, the Swarm Hub wiki was created by the very guys who created the VWN and manage the official TF wiki. It has never been said that a wiki was necessarily to be hosted by Wikia to be valid or just exist, and that we ''must'' link to a wiki hosted by Wikia before any other. When a subject does not have its wiki on Wikia, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Furthermore, any "real" Alien Swarm wiki would be the official one, which does not exist (yet). So I don't understand your use of "independent", since Wikia is not related to Valve or any copyright holder having its contents in the wikis of Wikia, and any Alien Swarm wiki hosted on any website has the same value as long as it is fan-managed, Wikia or not. You'll also see that on the left menu we link to the official Gmod wiki, not the duplicate one from Wikia, which would be a bit nonsensical. IMHO, the more wikis hosted by different websites the better, since Wikia has no monopoly on the creation of wikis. I hope you get my point. UserKlow|Klow 1400, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
Don't bother Bastique. I started the VWN too. If you'd like to merge, I'd be happy to oblige, otherwise don't bother trying to say that your wiki is the 'real' wiki. Thanks. UserSmashman2|Smashman2 1443, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

I know exactly who you are Smashman, I just resent the fact that you decided that your wiki was the "official" Alien Swarm wiki when ours was there first and is much more complete. I've put the option of a merger up to a vote by the community, we'll see what they decide. --UserBasique|Basique 1658, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
I'm glad you decided to consider the merge. No wiki is 'official' anyhow. I've said many times that I planned to create a MediaWiki installation, and I proposed the merger then. If we move I can maintain the server easily and there won't be any problems from Wikia. UserSmashman2|Smashman2 1742, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

== Links, Team Fortress ==

This still links to the old crappy wiki. Mind changing it or removing it? Thanks. UserSmashman2|Smashman2 2049, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
Changed. UserBramblepath|Bramblepath 1518, October 27, 2010 (UTC)

== New logo ==

I approve of this. UserSmelltheashes|Smelltheashes 0410, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
So is it called Wheatley wiki now or that's just a logo expansion? {{Unsigned|46.107.34.147}}
Just an expansion. UserSiPlus|SiPlus 1713, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

== What about page translations? ==

Are there any page translations?
Do you accept page translations?
If yes, how should they be added? Like COUNTRYTAG_PAGETITLE? (e.g. DE_Gordon_Freeman)

I'd maybe like to translate some pages into German. Just tell me how I should do it http//www.wayankatel.com blog pendidikan.

== Wiki changes ==

I am really sorry but it's been ages since i last visited this wiki and it has been renamed can anybody guide me through the changes and the motivations behind them?
Thanks. --UserDeniedoperative|Deniedoperative 0212, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
The wiki has moved to http//combineoverwiki.net combineoverwiki.net, to be independent and advertising free. This wiki has been renamed to avoid confusion between the two, and Wikia will keep this one open for editing. SpecialContributions/93.93.222.210|93.93.222.210 1142, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Ok thanks for telling me. It's kind of like the Halo Nation and Halo Wiki divergence. --UserDeniedoperative|Deniedoperative 0953, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

It's a similar situation, yes.  In both cases the wiki forked (I wouldn't say "moved", as it's still here ) but now has the opportunity to revive and continue here.  -- UserSannse|sannse http//images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb32675/wikia/images/e/e9/WikiaStaff.png  (wccommunityForumCommunity_Central_Forum|help forum | wccommunityBlogWikia_Staff_Blog |blog)  2338, January 18, 2012 (UTC)

== Links and Social Media boxes overlapping ==

FileBroken-layout.png|thumb
The layout of the frontpage is severely broken in Firefox version 18.0 using Wikias own MediaWiki skin. The link box is floating over the social media buttons. The page is protected so I can't fix it myself. UserMatthiasM|Matthias (User talkMatthiasM|talk) 1438, January 24, 2013 (UTC)
Seems fine for me. Maybe something is wrong with your browser. SpecialContributions/31.133.244.49|31.133.244.49 2044, January 26, 2013 (UTC)
No it's the same for me. I looked into it but I don't understand what's wrong... UserDeckard8t88|Deckard8t88 (User talkDeckard8t88|talk) 1102, January 28, 2013 (UTC)
The bug is "fixed" for now. There was something wrong with the relation of the Links template and the top-right ad location, I'll try to understand why!... UserDeckard8t88|Deckard8t88 (User talkDeckard8t88|talk) 1107, January 28, 2013 (UTC)


== Black Mesa (Source) content suggested ==
Hello, I'm posting to remind everyone that it would be helpful (if not just interesting) if images and content from the recent source mod Black Mesa were added to this wiki. This way, other viewers could see the changes compared to the original Half-Life. Plus, that mod brought it closer to the Half-Life 2 storyline with the addition of Dr. Kliener and Eli - not to mention women scientists and multiple zombie victims that only Opposing Force had before. Uploading of this content to go alongside the rest of what's here would be much appreciated.
Thank you.
