Leaders in the {{Infobox Faction}}

I've noticed that you're listing all past leaders in the {{Infobox Faction}}, it's probably just a personal preference issue, but I do think that in the case of Hammers Slammers it's a bit over the top... I would rather see just the actual leader or the last leader before dissolution in the infobox and have a separate section of the article with the list of all the leaders... --Xanyarr Chyakk 18:08, 19 June 2011 (GMT)

Okay. Understood. When there are a large number of leaders, I'll put them in a separate section. -- Rupert Havok 18:10, 19 June 2011 (GMT)


activating accounts with names not following guidelines

hey Rupert,
there's a rule/guideline/policy on Holocron:Guide that states that users MUST use Combine Handle for Holocron user accounts. It's tied to CP rewards, but also allows for better identification and communication outside of wiki. Perhaps we should follow it, eh? ;)
--Xesh Randell 16:50, 30 December 2012 (GMT)

Hi Xesh. Thank you for your feedback. I'm aware of the guideline; however, in this case, Derrik Thynite lost access to his existing Holocron account (User:Derrik Thynite) and was unable to retrieve his password. I contacted Dreighton regarding the problem and requested she look into the matter. As we cannot manually reset passwords, Thynite requested that an alternate account be temporarily activated. Several Holocron users have had this problem before in the past and others pursued a similar approach until it was resolved. -- Rupert Havok 18:15, 30 December 2012 (GMT)
I see. Does it mean that email password restore function via Special:UserLogin does not work? According to Manual:Resetting passwords Jennifer should be able to change password manually, provided we have those maintenance scripts... --Xesh Randell 13:03, 31 December 2012 (GMT)
Ooops, I even contacted Derrik on this, but somehow let it slip. The problem is that he did not enter a mailaddress and I can not access the command line of the server (or the DB for that matter). I suppose it is easier to let him stick to Derrik T than running this through Sin. Or you could all do me a favour by mailing him to let him know how my lack of access is a pain where it hurts, will you? ;) --Dreighton 23:03, 31 March 2013 (GMT)
I would e-mail Sin, but I worry he would auto-kill my in-game character as his official response. ;) -- Rupert Havok 06:11, 3 April 2013 (GMT)

Redirect pages for alternate spellings

I've noticed this for a while and didn't ask, but do we really need to clog up the database with redirect pages for alternate spellings of Faction names that no one is even linking to? Mesh`la Daryc 16:25, 8 December 2013 (GMT)

  1. In the majority of instances, I am creating re-directs for links that are used by people via the Special:WantedPages.
  2. One can't "clog up" a Wiki database with redirects. In fact, most articles on Wikipedia have roughly 40 to 50 redirects. Some articles have 80 to 100 redirects. In comparison, we barely have 2 to 5 per article.
  3. The very purpose of redirects -- as defined by Wikipedia and Wikia -- is for alternate spellings, alternative names, etc.
    -- Rupert Havok 01:23, 9 December 2013 (GMT)

Thanks, I've hit a few redirects that looped around to the first redirect so I'd been wondering.
