News reporter[edit]

  • Hey Ajr, I was just wondering why sysop needs "editnews", and why it can't be specifically for the news reporter right much like the "changerating" right is just for QCG? :S NovaHawk 00:06, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
    Hey - I didn't add it to sysop, someone else did, and I don't like duplicate rights so I removed it from all sysops. As much as I think that we have more than enough user groups (bag, qcg, newsreporter, checkuser, etc.), I won't block it further if you want to have it separate. I know that some people had issues with too many groups last time though - maybe starting a forum on it would be good? I'm in the middle of midterms now, but I'll gladly comment on it or start one in a week. Regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 01:07, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
    I don't think we have too many groups right now. Even if we do have more than we had at Brickia, we have more "branches" and abilities than we had last time, such as News. I doubt too many people would end up getting all of the rights at once (except for me lol) since some of them are pretty niche, such as News and BAG. Currently there is a board discussion on Meta about merging some rights, such as CU+OS. --ToaMeiko (talk) 01:18, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
    Sorry, I just assumed it due to you removing them. Good luck with the midterms :) NovaHawk 01:34, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Re.[edit]

Hey. Thanks for the message. I will be contributing here, and would like my rights transferred if that's ok. Thanks :) Shadowwarrior016 (talk) 03:39, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

wikidata[edit]

No clue what I'm doing there :P CJC95 (talk) 13:40, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

It... takes a while to figure out. I still don't understand stuff and I've been there for over a year now :P Ajraddatz (talk) 16:25, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
I assume English means American English, since British and Canadian English also exist? :P CJC95 (talk) 16:31, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, silly Americans think that their English is the best... when in reality a minority of anglos worldwide speak it :P Ajraddatz (talk) 16:52, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
Every time I go to do something at Wikidata someone has already beaten me to it. I think most of my contribs there are rather pathetic lol. --ToaMeiko (talk) 16:50, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

RE: Helloooo[edit]

Hey! Laptop broke down on me a couple months ago, finally found the cash to get a new one. Trying to get back in the swing of things, guess I better get on creating my userpage. :D -NBP3.0 (talk) 18:11, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

NBP!! :D Long time no see! :D --ToaMeiko (talk)

Ello[edit]

Hello Ajr!  :D Glad to be back, though it won't be as frequent. I will be making my userpage much nicer in the coming week(s). Great to hear from ya'.  :D Klagoer (talk)


Re: Contributing[edit]

Thanks for the rights. I'm not sure how much I'll use them, but they will be helpful whenever I edit. But I'm not going to edit at such a hectic pace as before. Agent Charge (talk) 05:46, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Hey Ajr, are you still around? Haven't seen you for aaages :( NovaHawk 00:54, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
    Yeah, I check in now and again. Honestly, I'm spending most of my wiki-time on Wikimedia, and don't really see Brickimedia going anywhere (though I also haven't been helping at all with that). Meh. Ajraddatz (talk) 01:00, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
    • Oh, wow that was fast, I was thinking I'd have to wait at least 24 hours :D Yeah, fair enough, it doesn't really seem to have taken off much :( NovaHawk 01:31, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Me so I can moan and also discuss a problem that is irritating me. CJC95 (talk) 20:35, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

greatballcontraption.com[edit]

Ajraddatz, I'm Brian from Brickwiki.info. While BrickWiki still isn't around to a merger, I did just inherit the greatballcontraption.com domain, and I think Brickimedia would be a great host for it. The great ball contraption community has a pent-up need for things like

  • a forum
  • an index of GBC modules with associated commentary
  • tutorials

What do you think, and how long would it take to set up a skeleton? Kind regards, ALittleSlow (talk) 01:27, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

YES YES YES YES YES. This would be very much appreciated at Brickimedia in my opinion. It would also be a good way to get Brickimedia out in the LEGO community offline as well, since the GBC community is present at almost every major fan convention. +1 on this idea from me. --ToaMeiko (talk) 01:36, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
I think we could make some server space for it :-). I'm not very familiar with the GBC community, so it would be better if someone else figured out what needed to be done to make it work, but it sounds like a great idea. You could retain ownership over the domain and gain access to our servers for development as well if that interests you. Ajraddatz (talk) 02:04, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
I'd like to consult the technical department to see if GBC could be on our MediaWiki installation used by all our wikis but be located on Brian's domain rather than ours. It should be possible, I'd imagine. That way everything's still running on the same single MediaWiki installation as if GBC was another wiki, but with its own domain. --ToaMeiko (talk) 02:09, 9 January 2015 (UTC)
As discussed, this is easily possible. UltrasonicNXT (talk)
That would be the ideal configuration. Sorry about starting two conversations. It was a combination of my spam filter and my impatience.ALittleSlow (talk) 02:22, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Incase you don't check Meta for a while, can you rename my account? --LK901 18:18, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Sure, looking now. Ajraddatz (talk) 19:35, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

RE: Why did you rollback this edit?[edit]

Yeah, I know it's for vandalism, but I was on my phone in a hurry. Nova and I have been undoing his recent edits because they are in violation of our BP:NOT policy. I figured because we had said so in an earlier edit summary I could just hit rollback, but if you want me to write it in next time I can. BrikkyyTalk 23:47, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

A few of the edits weren't BP:NOT, although falling foul of other things. CJC95 (talk) 23:50, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Problem with only stating it in one edit summary is it would require he see that particular edit summary, which in this case it seems he didn't. Never a bad thing to repeat yourself if it helps avoid an issue. --ToaMeiko (talk) 23:55, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Re: Server[edit]

  • Sorry, I sometimes forget meta exists for things other than being a place to upload images :P Thanks for the reply, yeah that makes total sense. I was under the impression we could just simply go to a slightly better (and only slightly more expensive) plan with the same host, I didn't know it'd be a big problem and potentially put us back to losing money instead of earning it NovaHawk 23:29, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

    Done. I have very limited internet access right now, unfortunately. Ajraddatz (talk) 00:59, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
    Thanks Ajr, didn't mean to bug you about it or anything (I know I posted the message in multiple places), I just thought it needed a fix pretty urgently :) NovaHawk 03:25, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Need Prize from 2014 Comic Con Contest[edit]

Hi, Ajraddatz.

This is my first time on a user talk page, so I hope this is the right place to put this.

Last year, I won a Mirkwood Elf Army set from the "2014 Comic-Con Contest", but I never received it. Do you know who I should contact to claim my prize? Unsigned comment by Lancethecat (talk • contribs).

On our budget records, that order was cancelled. I must have been told not to order it at some point for some reason. Perhaps I never received shipping information from you? If you can email me your name, mailing address, and a valid phone number for the shipping company to reach you at if necessary, I can order the set for you if it is still available, and if not we can order a set of equivalent value of your choice. --ToaMeiko (talk) 18:26, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Re: Sysadmin rights use[edit]

Takedown request[edit]

  • Hey Ajr, just making sure- does the takedown request apply to the two new Rogue One images as well as that one from weeks ago you deleted? NovaHawk 01:07, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
    Hi Nova. The takedown was only issued for the one I deleted. If they have a problem with the others, they can issue notices for them as well :-) Ajraddatz (talk) 05:01, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Featured review This month's featured review is on 10696 LEGO Medium Creative Brick Box, written by Brikkyy13.

Bclassic1.JPG

Hello! Today I'm reviewing one of the Classic sets that are new for 2015, 10696 LEGO Medium Creative Brick Box. This set was kindly donated to Brickipedia by our friends over at The LEGO Group. So, is this set worth picking up, or is it just another parts pack? As you can see, the packing is quite unconventional. Like most sets branded under the "LEGO" name alone (i.e. not any specific theme) the parts are packaged in large re-usable for containers.

BlackKnights-shield.png

The Black Knights were one of the various factions of LEGO's Castle theme and were introduced in 1988. During its run, a total of thirteen sets were released as part this series, including two major castles, making it one of the larger LEGO Castle factions of this era. The black colour of their fortifications was one of the features that set the Black Knights apart from earlier factions. The Black Knights were also distinguished by their symbol, which was a blue wyvern dragon featured on their shields and banners, a motif that was also used by the Dragon Masters with different colours. The Black Knights were phased out as regular theme after 1994 but the crest still made occasional appearances until 1996.
