RWED: GBA Edit

I've written the pages for Dead Metal/Robot Wars: Extreme Destruction (GBA) and Firestorm/Robot Wars: Extreme Destruction (GBA), and ToastUltimatum did 101/Robot Wars: Extreme Destruction (GBA). If you wish to continue helping with this project, use these pages as a template. Also in future, don't paste raw code as a template, use the template hyperlink as well, in this case {{Robots in Extreme Destruction (GBA)}} MattRobot WarsTalk to me 13:37, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

Not sure what Mattt said when he typed "Use the template hyperlink as well", {{Robots in Extreme Destruction (GBA)}} is all you have to put, no raw code at all. I've left this task to BizarroKing to fix, in case he wants to bump up his edit count, but bear that in mind. ToastUltimatum 13:41, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
I meant 'instead', sorry my brain's a bit fried today. MattRobot WarsTalk to me 13:51, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

Bring back Robot WarsEdit

VoteSaxon7 on Youtube made this. I agree with him that the show should return. Sam (BAZINGA) 23:44, July 31, 2012 (UTC)

ChompalotEdit

Hi Sam, Yes I am Simon from Team Cookie Monsters. I edited the Chompalot page earlier, but it has reverted, I've tried refreshing browser and purging but it's still the same. Cheers Simon --Chompalot 19:39, December 15, 2012 (UTC)

2012 Winter Trivia QuizEdit

As you are a regular user of the wiki, I wish to inform you that the 2012 Winter edition of the Trivia Quiz to be held on chat will be on the 29th December at 3pm (British Time). Sorry for not giving you that much notice, but I've been busy with other commitments lately. If you need to refamiliarise yourself with the Quiz, just visit my blog here. Please contact me on my talk page to say if you can make it or not. Thanks and I hope you can make it. Datovidny (talk) 17:12, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

Your Top 10 favourite battles Edit

Hello there. With the anniversary of the Wikia not far away, I'm looking to see what the Wikia's all time favourite battle is for a new list. May I ask you what your top ten favourite battles in Robot Wars were? Thank you. CrashBash (talk) 10:21, January 1, 2013 (UTC)

Is there a forum page for the favorite battles or do I just list them here? Sam (BAZINGA) 17:21, January 1, 2013 (UTC)
You can list them on my blog. http://robotwars.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:CrashBash/Top_10_Best_Battles,_according_to_the_wikia_-_worth_doing%3F CrashBash (talk) 17:32, January 1, 2013 (UTC)

Sugar Plum Fairy/SkabEdit

Laurie Calvert got back to me, and said he's unable to help as the name of Sugar Plum Fairy doesn't ring any bells for him and that places like the FRA Forums are the best bet for information. Mind if I move the discussion to talk pages? MassiveDestruction49 23:06, February 2, 2013 (UTC)

Not at all. Sam (BAZINGA) 23:12, February 2, 2013 (UTC)

Sent John Willoughby a message on YouTube about it. MassiveDestruction49 00:04, February 3, 2013 (UTC)

Awesome, what about other roboteers that entered robots into Techno Games? Trevor Wright, Gary Cairns and other roboteers are on Facebook, they might know something. Sam (BAZINGA) 00:09, February 3, 2013 (UTC)

John Willoughby got back to me saying that Skabs owner was called Dave Robinson, and gave me an e-mail address. It's 10 years old so there is a slim chance of contacting him, but i'll give it a shot. MassiveDestruction49 18:54, February 3, 2013 (UTC)

Okey Dokey. Sam (BAZINGA) 19:21, February 3, 2013 (UTC)

Hotmail has told me that the message has been delayed, so I don't know if that means if the servers are having a problem at the moment, or I'm sending to a defunct address. Hopefully will find out soon. MassiveDestruction49 19:33, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

If it turns out that the e-mail address is dead, oh c***. If the servers are having a problem sending the message, the e-mail address might still work and the Techno Games wiki (and maybe this wiki) gets some valueable information from the roboteer. Sam (BAZINGA) 19:52, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

Bad news I'm afraid. Hotmail said the e-mail failed because it couldn't connect to the destination server, so I'm guessing that it no longer works. All we have right now is that Skab and Sugar Plum Fairy are very, very likely the same robot- every detail of the bodies of both machines is identical right up to a small curve underneath the flat end (that can be seen in the picture of Chaos 2 flipping Skab and if you look closely at SPF during it's Assault against Typhoon Rover), and Skab minus the spike and with some paint equals Sugar Plum Fairy. However it's like the probability that the Series 6 A-Kill is the same middleweight from Series 3 just with a load of weapons piled on- no absolute confirmation from the creator. I do remember one thing about Sugar Plum Fairy from watching Techno-Games 10 years ago though- it was going to be painted pink but the team ordered the wrong paint and it ended up purple instead, so you could use it reaching the semi-final as the basis of a Techno Games article, with the paint and possibility that it was Skab as trivia. MassiveDestruction49 23:46 February 5, 2013 (UTC)

I'll make the page for Sugar Plum Fairy later, thanks for the info on the paint. Sam (BAZINGA) 10:51, February 6, 2013 (UTC)

Here is the page. Sam (BAZINGA) 21:43, February 6, 2013 (UTC)

Nice article, thought I'd give it a little tweak or two, thanks about the rivalry section for Team Juggerbot by the way. MassiveDestruction49 23:53, February 7, 2013 (UTC)

That's ok. Sam (BAZINGA) 10:01, February 8, 2013 (UTC)

Hannibal image Edit

Hey Sammy. Do you happen to remember where you got this image of Hannibal? I'm trying to find out everything I can about the original team and I'm hoping that might help me. Christophee (talk) 14:07, April 19, 2013 (UTC)

Here Christophee. Sam (BAZINGA) 20:30, April 19, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. I actually linked to the second page of that discussion on Talk:Hannibal (UK), but didn't look at the first page. I assume that is the discussion you linked to in the first message on that talk page, but the url changed so the link doesn't work any more. Christophee (talk) 11:52, April 20, 2013 (UTC)

King B in 2007Edit

Are you sure this is King B fighting Merlin, because it doesn't look like King B head on. What source did you use to acquire this photo? Datovidny (talk) 10:58, June 23, 2013 (UTC)

It came from the Robots Live! Facebook page, it was taken at the London MCM Expo in 2007. Here's the link Sam (BAZINGA) 12:47, June 23, 2013 (UTC)
shouldn't King B have an 'Outside Robot Wars' section on its page then? RelicRaider (talk) 13:06, June 23, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it should. The Spaced fact should probably go in there too. Christophee (talk) 01:00, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
I'll do that now. Sam (BAZINGA) 08:24, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

UserboxesEdit

As an answer to your question - Yes, that is the whole point of the page. Jimlaad43(talk) 05:44, July 31, 2013 (UTC)

Awesome, I just wanted to make sure. Sam (BAZINGA) 15:51, July 31, 2013 (UTC)

Main page Edit

Hi Sam. Could you please consult the 'front page' discussion on the community portal and confirm whether you are still interested in taking over responsibility for updating the main page? Thank you. Christophee (talk) 15:36, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

Will do. Sam (BAZINGA) 15:48, September 8, 2013 (UTC)
Now that you are in charge of the main page, I think it would be quite good if you had a userbox on your userpage which displays that fact, rather like the Arena judges have. Of course, it's entirely up to you whether you want such a thing, it was just a suggestion. By the way, the 'Did you know' template has been unprotected, so you can edit it now. Christophee (talk) 00:13, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Is there a userbox for that? If there isn't, I'm going to make one. Also, thanks for unprotecting the Did You Know template. Sam (BAZINGA) 10:51, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
There isn't currently, no. I'm not very good at userboxes, so I'll let you decide how you want it to look. Christophee (talk) 12:39, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Made one, I simply modified one of the userboxes on my user page and put it at the top of the page. Sam (BAZINGA) 13:42, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Ah yes, so you have.I think it might look better on the right, but you'd probably have to create a new template from scratch for that. I'm not good at this stuff, as I said before. If you're happy with it, then that's all that matters. Christophee (talk) 14:03, September 11, 2013 (UTC)
Made a template, I think it looks pretty cool. Sam (BAZINGA) 14:25, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

Featured ContentEdit

Nice job with the main page, and particularly good choice for the clip. Incase you weren't aware, there are several suggestions for featured content on the Robot Wars Wiki - Main Page/Featured Content page if you get stuck in the future. Datovidny (talk) 17:56, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, I'm glad I've done a good job. I picked a video of the featured article and I will do for the rest of the planned future articles I've listed in my blog. For Gyrobot, I will have one of its qualifiers as the featured video, the featured episodes will have one fight from the episode (not off BBCRobotWarsUK though as YouTube blocked the first video of the Annihilator I uploaded) and competitors will have a fight featuring them. Sam (BAZINGA) 18:47, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

Lego Edit

I love those Lego robots you've added to your page. How long do they take you to make, and do you use them to battle, or just for display? Christophee (talk) 13:17, October 11, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks Chris. Some of them, like Formula 1.1 and Warrior Mouse, don't take more than 5 minutes to make, rebuild or modify. Others, like Legoredo and Thumper, take more than 5 minutes as I can't decide what parts to use or if they still work as good before being modified. I do use them for battling, either against each other or the whatever pullbacks I'm using as house robots. Sam (BAZINGA) 13:30, October 11, 2013 (UTC)

Front page factsEdit

There seems to be some dissent about the Android Love fact on the main page. As we are trying to remove it and mention it as a rumour, could you replace it with a new fact. Jimlaad43(talk) 12:59, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

I'll do that now. Sam (BAZINGA) 18:34, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

Eco WarriorEdit

You added a red link to Eco Warrior on the Banana-R Armour page. Are you planning to do anything to that page? Jimlaad43(talk) 14:03, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

Yep, we have the basic information on it. Sam (BAZINGA) 14:09, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

Featured Video Edit

Hey Sammy, I saw that you've put a fan video as the featured video on our front page. Is that going to be a recurring thing, and if so, can I get one up there occasionally? RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 17:48, November 5, 2013 (UTC)

If the featured article is a video game robot page or the poll has four robots that feature in one of your videos, I'll use your videos as they are pretty awesome. Sam (BAZINGA) 17:55, November 5, 2013 (UTC)
I suggested that one as it was one of the few videos to actually contain Terrorhurtz in Arenas of Destruction. I'm sure I read somewhere that the video was made by a RWW user. Jimlaad43(talk) 18:04, November 5, 2013 (UTC)
That's ManUCrazy's YouTube channel, right? Christophee (talk) 19:21, November 5, 2013 (UTC)
Yes it is, thanks. Jimlaad43(talk) 19:24, November 5, 2013 (UTC)

Sumpthing in 2013Edit

I assume this image was somewhere on Facebook. Can you send a link to this? Datovidny (talk) 18:12, November 5, 2013 (UTC)

Here's the link. Sam (BAZINGA) 18:26, November 5, 2013 (UTC)
