Hey Samuel! I have a question for you that involves another wiki, but do you know what country Klock101 currently lives in? Considering you two have known each other for quite a considerable time, I thought you'd be the first person to know. Thanks!
Hey Sam. Sorry for being absent during E3 week (no internet) but what do you want to do about Elena and Sully's pages; because we have new images of each! I know we should wait for renders but god knows how log we'll have to wait for those; furthermore, I'm annoyed that we haven't seen the closed door demo! I'd love to see Nate sliding along in the dirt! :D Still, liking the co-op melee bits where Sully just rushes in to take out that dude when Nate's trapped. Your thoughts?
As for the new images, I would say go ahead and change them if they are hi-res enough. I really enjoyed the E3 2015 demo and I have to say I am now very, very excited. Shall be getting my PS4 very soon... I also thought that Sully was a lot more helpful in the demo as a whole, compared to NPCs from past games.
I'm glad you've messaged me actually as I've been meaning to talk to both you and Ilan. I'm not sure if you read my forum thread from a few months ago, but please take a look here http://uncharted.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:36191
Long story short, my time here is coming to an end and I need to know I'm leaving this place in the hands of able, active, adminstrators. I've talked of a new 'Head Admin' as well, but I can't see any sense in giving the role to a new admin. The only two people I could trust with the position would be you or Ilan. As Ilan hasn't been seen for a long time, I would like to offer it to you. You have proved yourself on the Wiki over the years and I would feel more than happy leaving it in your hands.
You are under no obligation to accept - 'Head Admin' isn't really an official term after all, and you could still help out here just as much as a regularr admin. The Wiki really does need someone leading the admin team, keeping the various portals on the front page up to date and making the Wiki's design is slick and current. But please, if you don't think you can commit to something like this - you will need to be active almost every day - then don't worry about it.
I'll check out that forum no worries. Man, I would really love to accept that position... but I don't think I'd be honest if I said I could be active everyday. Still, thank you! That's really nice of you to offer, I'm quite grateful. Kinda funny considering I didn't ever think I'd be admin here and now I could be head. But honestly, I'm not sure I would be able to live up to that, like be on everyday.
But I'm sad to hear you're leaving; mind me asking why that is?
While I am disappointed you have declined, I respect your decision. The search continues! Will you still be present as a standard admin from now on?
As for my reasons for leaving, I simply do not have the time to edit here as much as I'd like. This is mainly down to school and with uni just one year away it is doubtful my time will free up anytime soon. It doesn't feel right calling myself head admin and then only logging in barely once a week. I know there is someone out there better suited for the role, it is just a matter of time before they show up. You haven't heard from Ilan recently have you?
Ilan is here, lads and ladies. I've just been caught in a long line of difficult times among military service, work in other websites, personal loss, and general depression that has been hitting me for sometime now.
Anyways, I am more or less back; I'm more active during weekends due to me staying in my base for most of the week, but even then I'll keep an eye on the wiki and edit and clean up when possible.
On a side note, yes, I've renamed my username. o,o
Hey Ilan, good to see you. Sorry to hear about all of that, hope things are better for you now.
I'm not sure if you've read it yet, but I'll post a link to an important blog post I made a few months back - http://uncharted.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:36191 Tl;dr, I've all but left the Wiki and I'm doing my best to make sure it's in the best hands.
I'll start by offering you the Head Admin role, you being the only person other than Elena who I could trust it with, but I think I can predict your answer based on your post. If not Head Admin, it is at least good that you're back in some shape or form.
Now, to the administrative team in general,
E3 came and went, and the Wiki still seems a ghost town compared to what it used to be. I feel a core team of Ilan, Elena and NinjaFatGuy will do a fine job in running the place from now on. I still have my Wiki account linked to my email so any questions or queries send my way and I'll answer best I can. For now I'll retain my admin rights so I can help out with any vandalism issues in the near future, but eventually I will get rid of them altogether.
The last step now is for me to appoint a new bureaucrat. This is exactly the same as an admin except they can also appoint new admins, so the Wiki really does need one. I don't mind who it is if any of the current admins would like the role, as really appointing new administrators should be a unanimous decision anyway. The bureaucrat is just the one who goes in and flicks the switch.
For now though, this is my final post as head admin. Good luck with the Uncharted Wiki and I'll see you around. For any who want to catch me on PSN, my username is samuelcd1997.
Note that Head Admin and bureaucrat are different positions. In essence, if you were to become head admin, you would also be a bureaucrat (it is good to have more than one) but you would have a lot more duties too. I listed them here http://uncharted.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:36191.
The position is still open so if you're serious about taking it, then just say the word. If you'd rather just be a bureaucrat, then let me know also.
Hey, just wondering if we should add Uncharted: Fight For Fortune to the wiki. Although not a Naughty Dog game itself, it's a card-based game for the Vita using cards earned in Golden Abyss. I have quite a bit to say about it (as I mentioned on the new admin discussion thread). I didn't want to start it up in case you (or another admin) decides not to, so I thought I'd ask and wait for feedback.
Great edits so far, definitely what the Wiki has needed for a while now.
I'm not sure what you're referring to by the game section? The page is in the "Uncharted Games" category and on the "Uncharted (series)" page. If you mean the navigation bar, I don't think it really qualifies as part of the main series to be along with the other 5.
Quick stuff: you have a message from NinjaFatGuy but just wanted you to know I handled his requests. Just before you do work for no reason. :)
I locked down Drake's 'brother' page because of requests and also it was being chnaged 50 times a day. Also, the logo is altered slightly. Just thought you should know.
But what about that gameplay, right? I love the melee! That back and forth countering is what I've always wanted. I love how Drake just flips the guy to end the fight. can't wait to see more of that. Also, the climbing animations look so much better (not that they were bad before). Just hope we see some in game footage of Elena and Sully soon.
I liked the video - looks great and I can't wait to play. One thing though, Naughty Dog did kinda pick a bit of a dull scene to show off the game. Yes, it was full of action and combat, but there wasn't too much new from the past game. However, perhaps this is a good thing - I remember with UC3 they ended up showing all the best bits (plane, ship, chateau) beforehand, leaving nothing new.
Overall, I am looking forward to see more. Especially, as you say, some Elena and Sully footage.
Yeah, I agree. But I think they wanted to A.) not do a U3 and spoil it all B.) show off the more dynamic fights. I loved that bit where the grenade was there so he kinda dove off the cliff and grappled. Looked very nice. But we'll see. This is ND; I'm sure they have more up their sleeve.
Hey, did you see the small reference in Drake's journal when he pulls it out near that skeleton; on the right hand side he had a little note to remember to call Elena. Love little details like that.
Please, Samuel, lock the page Unnamed character (Uncharted 4) to administrators only. So many people are mistaking the character to be named Sam when Drake said "Same" in the gameplay. Just please lock it, no other admin is responding to anything.
