Alien articlesEdit

Monster Legacy just posted some long articles on the Aliens from the first two films.--Toa Quarax(Talk) 03:40, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I've noticed, but I just haven't had time to read through them all yet (although I did go through the one on the Warriors from Aliens). I'll definitely give them a read at some point.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:06, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

Uploading PhotosEdit

How do I upload photos?--Dofhd (talk) (Contribs) 21:56, March 19, 2015 (UTC)Dofhd

If you're using the VisualEditor, click on Insert, then Media and upload your photo.--Toa Quarax(Talk) 02:13, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
Dofhd, you might want to check out this help page on images.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk)

Hi there! Thank you for fixing my edits to certain pages, I am still new to the site! --Herashr (talk) (Contribs) 21:47, April 2, 2015 (UTC)

No problem, thaaks for contributing!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 07:44, April 3, 2015 (UTC)

Grid's pic Edit

I saw the new picture of the Grid Xeno....I'm sorry but i'm gonna have to disagree with this change....In the old pic it had a zoom in on it's face where you could clearly see it's most defining feature, this pic just looks like jumbled up body parts.....Permission to revert it?

Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 21:16, April 12, 2015 (UTC)Heatlineheard

Xenopedia policy is to use an in-film screenshot for the title image on character pages — the previous image was a behind-the-scenes photograph. I disagree that the new version "looks like jumbled up body parts", you can still see it's Grid, but you are of course welcome to try and find a better snapshot from the film!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:27, April 13, 2015 (UTC)

New messageEdit

Leigh, Sorry for writing on another post but I'm having trouble sending you a new Transmission, it seems to overwrite what was previously written, not sure why this is happening, it had never happened before. JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 09:50, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Huh, that's strange... It told me you posted a message on here but then before I could reply it said you'd you removed it again! Try again perhaps?--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 10:14, April 20, 2015 (UTC)


Yeah I don't know man, I removed it because it was showing me like your entire talk page was erased once it sent, so I undid it...let me try once more JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 10:17, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Ah yeah, I've had that happen before. It's just a glitch. If it happens again, click Edit, don't change anything and hit Publish again, and it should fix it.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 10:33, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Edit

Hey Leigh how's everything?

Been gone for a while since my fifteen year old dog passed, so I've been dealing with that amongst other things.

Also did you want me to make a few more edits for the new logo I was designing or is that last version good?

(Sorry about the archive edit, read the headline too late, so I erased what I had written.) JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 10:18, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Cool looks like it worked this time. JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 10:19, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Ah, really sorry to hear about your dog. We lost ours earlier this year. Sad but he was a good old age so not completely unexpected, and at least he was happy and healthy up until the end.
Feel free to try tweaking the logo some more if you want! I've actually been really busy of late trying to smarten up the comic book pages on here (all, like, two hundred of them) because they're one of our biggest problem areas, so I haven't had much time to think about anything else! It's been a bit of a marathon.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 10:33, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks man I really appreciate it. Sorry about your loss as well, they definitely become family so it is indeed very difficult. Mine was very happy and healthy overall, up until the final week of his life (wasn't eating etc.) but at least he passed in his sleep at home. Dogs should live like 30-45 years lol. Also at least both of our dogs were old and happy till the end.

Cool will do! Any particular things you'd like me to try and improve on it?

No worries my friend, if you need any covers or anything I can try and help when I have time if you like, I have thousands and thousands of AvP images that I hope to eventually upload unto here, just takes a while lol.

Lastly can't wait for Predator in Mortal Kombat X! Played it yet?

JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 10:47, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Fortunately Dark Horse Comics' website is proving a great asset, they have digital copies of the covers from virtually every comic (and every issue) they've ever published, so I've been able to fill in the ones that were missing on here no problem. But of course feel free to upload any cool images you have in your collection. During my digging around I even found a couple of comics that we had no pages for at all, so I've created those and added them to the various lists on here.
I'll be honest, I'm not a great fan of beat-em-ups (I'm not sure I've played a single one made for any platform post-SNES!) but I am quite intrigued by the Predator making a guest appearance in the new one. I'll keep an eye on it for sure. Maybe we can even get an article set up for it; after all, we have one for Call of Duty: Ghosts thanks to the Predator's playable appearance in that.
As for the logo, it looked pretty good to me, but if you can think of anyway to improve it by all means give it a go. I'm very nearly done with the comics pages, actually; once I'm finished I intend to start a blog post regarding the replacement of the current logo with the new one, to see what other people think.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 11:34, April 20, 2015 (UTC)

Oh yes! Dark Horse's website is great! Besides all the great documented info, they also have some really great HD wallpapers, seen the Fire and Stone ones?.

Yeah I don't play much fighting games but I have been a huge Mortal Kombat fan since I was really young, and although Predator makes no sense in the MK Universe it's still gonna be a lot of fun to have my favorite character (next to the Alien and Engineer) in my favorite fighting game series lol! Yes I was thinking the same thing, once he's out I'll play him a few million times and then create an article or add info to it if it already exists.

Yeah personally I think it looks just fine, pretty satisfied with the latest one ;P

Awesome thanks =) JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 21:28, April 21, 2015 (UTC)

Ah I didn't know they did wallpapers too, I'll have a look at those. I was planning to explore the site a little more now that I'm done with the comics.
I'll get on the blog post in the near future.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:44, April 22, 2015 (UTC)

New ChatEdit

Hey Leigh,

How have you been my friend? Sorry I've been a bit absent from the site, just had a lot going on. Just noticed that our logo is now the main one! Awesome, it looks great :)

Once I get more active here again, I want to create an article for the Mortal Kombat X Predator, been playing that quite often since release. Now there are guest Predators in Mortal Kombat and Call Of Duty, hopefully they'll make a new Predator or Aliens vs. Predator for next gen consoles soon haha.


JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 05:46, July 15, 2015 (UTC)

Heya! Good to see you back. No problem about the absence, I stopped contributing so much for a while, either because I was away or just too busy, but I've been slaving away at tidying up the comic book articles lately. To be honest, I was hoping for some more input on the logo switch, but the wiki's really quiet at the moment. Still, the new one does look quite good!
That sounds great. If CoD: Ghosts gets a page then MKX really should too, but I don't have the game so I'm probably not the best person to do it! Just follow the CoD page as a guide — it should mostly focus on just the Predator stuff rather than the game as a whole, because this is still an AVP wiki. A new AVP game would be great, I'm hoping Isolation's success will encourage them to develop more games in the franchise. And I'm still waiting for that stand-alone Predator game! Concrete Jungle was so long ago :( --Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 07:52, July 15, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! :)

Yeah I know what you mean, sometimes life gets busy or things get in the way and you barely have time to do the things you love. A friend of mine recently died about 2 weeks ago, and he was only 37, so me and another friend we had in common kinda miss him, but he loved to have fun and was pretty laid back, so I'm sure he'd be happy if we didn't get all sad lol. His favorite thing was Terminator so we always say that at least he saw Genisys which he actually really liked haha. Real funny dude.

Awesome! I'll be sure to check out the comic articles you've improved! I've actually been wanting to do a full extensive article for Elden like the one I made for Ahab, gotta get around to that sometime.

Agreed! I feel the new logo represents the entire AvP Universe even Giger quite beautifully :)

Sounds good my friend, I will get around to the MKX soon hopefully.


Yes I really would love a new AvP or Predator game! And I agree hopefully Isolation will inspire them to make more Alien/Predator games. I thought AVP: Evolution (iOS) was phenomenal game for not being a major PC/console game. Yeah Concrete Jungle was ten years ago :( lol

JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 00:56, July 16, 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I'm so sorry to hear that. 37 is no age. I'm glad it sounds like you're holding up OK though. Like you said, he probably wouldn't want you moping around. Glad he got to enjoy Genisys at least!
I haven't done a whole lot to the actual content of the comics pages, just added infoboxes, added cover images for the ones that didn't have them, cleaned up the intros and created articles for the comics we were missing (I think I've got them all now). They could still use quite a bit of work — almost none of them have character articles or detailed plot summaries — but as someone who doesn't read comics I'm afraid I can't really help out there! The pages at least look a lot smarter now. My big project at the moment is the Aliens magazine article, which was a real mess and full of "we don't know" stuff. I'm actually collecting the magazine as well, so the list of contents is looking far more complete now, at least for the issues I have. At the same time I'm reading through the old novels, adding plot summaries to those because almost none of them have any.
All good fun by my wallet isn't happy :'( Haha.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:06, July 16, 2015 (UTC)


Yeah too young indeed. You're absolutely right, and yeah at least he got a chance to enjoy the latest installment to his favorite franchise!


Oh ok cool, yeah I did something similar with the games a while back, small changes like that make big difference though, good job! Yeah I have all the comics, so I'll see I can help out sometime by adding pictures and useful info :)

Awesome! Yeah I have a lot of those but they're locked away in a collection furniture I built that I haven't been to in years lol (also have those huge 1995 Medicom Alien and Predator hand puppets amongst other AvP things in there), but that's great!

The classic novels are good reads, do you own most of them? If not I'll see if I can assist I know have all of those, I'll look for them if you need help with any (Aliens, Predator and AvP)

Haha yeah most AvP collectible will make wallets cry...I recently purchased the Weyland-Yutani Report so that definitely hurt my wallet lol.

JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 21:17, July 16, 2015 (UTC)

Oh wow, the W-Y Report? I'm seriously having to fight the urge to buy that! Not sure I can justify spending over $300 on a book but damn do I want it! It looks awesome.
I'm pretty sure I've told you before that I'm not a huge comic book guy, but Aliens magazine interests me because of all the other articles in it, plus the awesome cover art — while I don't necessarily like reading comics, I do love the beautiful cover artowrk they often have! Plus, lover of comics or not, I do really wanna read the Alien3 adaptation, which I now have courtesy of the Alien3 Movie Special spin-off. Haven't had a chance to read it yet though. I'm considering picking up the Alien Resurrection comic afterwards too, if only to complete the set. (I already have Alien: The Illustrated Story; that really is a great comic!)
As for the novels, I only have the Aliens books up to Labyrinth for now, but I fully intend to buy more when I get through the ones I have. I'm just finishing off Alien Harvest at the moment. Some of them are definitely better than others, but they've all at least been entertaining reads. And of course you're welcome to help out if you'd like!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:43, July 17, 2015 (UTC)


Lol yeah it was very expensive, haven't began reading it as of yet but I couldn't hold myself I pre-ordered I believe in October lol

Yeah I know exactly what you mean man!, some cover arts are just astonishing! And very captivating! Also yes the Aliens magazine has good articles. Yeah I have all of the Alien 3 comics individually, love their cover art too! Just last year I purchased a large art print of one of the covers from that series, along with a huge 27x40 poster of the comic Aliens versus Predator: Eternal, can't remember if I have Alien 3: Movie Special I probably do I that furniture. Ah yes! I have the Alien: Resurrection one as well, one of my local comic shop has a ton of those! For like $3.50 each lol

I love Alien: The Illustrated Story! If I remember correctly I have the original and a re-release, it is indeed fantastic my friend!

I agree some are better than others but all are entertaining reads though as you say. I'll go to my book shelf and then see what's missing here on the site for some and add some info :)

(If not this week soon, just been crazy busy lol)

JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 19:47, July 18, 2015 (UTC)

I am so seriously tempted to get the W-Y Report. Thinking I may cave at some pint lol. I'm really damn jealous that you have a copy! Maybe after I've got the last two issues of Aliens magazine I'm missing... :) --Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 18:55, July 19, 2015 (UTC)

AVP-R images Edit

Hey Leigh, I will be uploading some photos from AVP Requiem soon and when I am able to, be aware that some photos may look the same but one version will be from the blu-ray. I took from different version to see what would be best and/or suitable. --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 15:47, May 7, 2015 (UTC)

Hey there! First of all, my condolences for owning that movie :P In all seriousness though, that sounds great, those pages have some of the worst images on the site. Generally I'd say the Blu-ray pictures should be better. Higher resolution and all that. Instead of uploading two of everything maybe you could deleted the one you decide is inferior after you've tried them out? There shouldn't really be any need for two copies.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 17:01, May 7, 2015 (UTC)

Hi Edit

Hello. (Nature's savoir (talk) (Contribs) 21:02, May 28, 2015 (UTC))

Errm... hi. Did you want anyting in particular?--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:33, May 29, 2015 (UTC)

Please add the Characters category to the In-universe articles category Edit

Could you please add Category:Characters to Category:In-universe articles?John Pannozzi (talk) (Contribs) 14:41, June 4, 2015 (UTC)

Concrete Jungle Edit

I recently found some surprisingly high-quality HD playthrough videos of it on YouTube, so I'm going to be replacing existing low-quality images with screencaps from them. It won't get done overnight, but I'll work on it periodically. You can check out quality of the new images on the Lucretia Borgia, Baby Blew, and Dark Blade Clan pages. Ghost Leader (talk) (Contribs) 06:15, July 20, 2015 (UTC)

I noticed, and was just on my way to your talk page to thank you! Great job, those images really needed smartening up. Keep up the good work!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:00, July 20, 2015 (UTC)

Right here is the first level[1]. They continue on at the top of the "Up Next" widget on the right side of the player. The uploader must be a fellow fan, considering his name.

CrossoverEdit

Ridley Scott has officle confirmed that Blade Runner and Alien both Play in the same universe 


http://www.toplessrobot.com/2012/10/ridley_scott_just_merged_the_alien_and_blade_runne.php


so, why you delet ?--Preceding unsigned comment added by Obi Wan Knoblauch (talk) - Please sign your messages with ~~~~

Please sign your posts on talk pages.
Ridley Scott has most certainly not "officially confirmed" that the Alien series and Blade Runner take place in the same universe. The only time that article you linked to even mentions Scott is when it talks about references he specifically elected not to include in Prometheus, so there's no link there because he cut them all. As for the mention of Tyrell in the Blu-ray special features, that's merely an Easter egg and it's highly unlikely Scott had anything to do with it, so it's hardly definitive proof.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 15:36, September 2, 2015 (UTC)

Re:Edit

No problem! ^^ That vandal was vandalizing my wiki, too. {{SUBST:Nosubst|User:The Fox Girl/Sig}} 09:44, September 14, 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry...Edit

Hello Leigh Burne, and yes it is true that I have been copy-pasting several pages on Xenopedia..... My bad... I didn't mean to offend anyone, but I can see why you're mad... I apologize for not asking your permission first and the permission of the other Xenopedia admins, this is a huge and terrible error in my part. The reason I copy-pasted those pages is because I had no idea those books and cards existed until seeing them in Xenopedia. I guess it's hard for me to come up with words different from the ones in Xenopedia, so I went the easy route by copy-pasting them and then modify them.... Again I'm really sorry for copy-pasting the articles, I'm also sorry for not asking your permission first and the permission of the other admins..... Dino crisis fan (talk) September 16, 2015 (UTC)

That's fine. I'm not exactly mad, just a little disappointed that my hard work has been taken by someone else. I wasn't so bothered about the Alien photo cards article, but I put a lot of effort into researching and writing the Aliens magazine page, and to have someone simply copy it all (and, intentionally or not, make it seem like their own work in the process) was a little upsetting. I certainly don't mind you using Xenopedia as a source of information, because as you say, details on some of these things are really hard to find, but simply copying someone else's text feels a little unfair.
I appreciate the apology, and accept it. No hard feelings!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:12, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
Apology is appreciated Dino but more than photos have been plagiarised from this wiki, whole articles have been  copied and pasted onto yours in the past, such as the facehugger page for example, they are no longer identical now due to new edits done by me, Leigh and Toa and others over the last.. two years say, but compare the old versions and the ones on yours and you can see. I would have said something myself but I concentrated on other stuff first, but with the new edits made that improved our pages and made them different, I decided to let it go. In future please be original but if you need to share sources for citation, then just ask and we will give an answer. Trust me in that you would give your wiki more credibility and respect if the articles and info in them are original, people do notice no matter how subtle or extensive the modification done to it. Apology accepted though. --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 12:33, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

RenameEdit

Hey, do you think we should rename Super Predator (Clan) to Super Predator Clan (Game Preserve)? Deathblade 100 (talk) (Contribs) 23:55, September 24, 2015 (UTC)

Are there any other Super Predator clans with which it might be confused?--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 07:55, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
There is a Super Predator Clan on LV-416. But I'm not sure if it counts. Deathblade 100 (talk) (Contribs) 03:58, September 26, 2015 (UTC)
Ah is that from a game or something? I'd still debate whether it needs a rename though. The Classic Predator from Predators is still considered to be in the Jungle Hunter Clan, just like the original Jungle Hunter, despite being on a different planet. The whole clan thing is a bit of an issue to me anyway, as we don't really have any proof with most Predators that they are in a certain group or tribe or whatever. Not that I'm aware of anyway.
FYI, not ignoring you, I'm away this week!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:27, October 1, 2015 (UTC)

JANN'S BACKEdit

Hey my friend, been a long time, lol been so busy with so much stuff going on lately, still been keeping up with everything AvP though, that's always top priority haha!

Recently acquired the Legendary Encounters Alien and Predator card sets (I highly recommend them) and new NECA Classic Kenner AvP 2-Pack, definitely a cool collectible. Also really interested in the new novels beginning with Predator: Incursion. Lastly what do you think about the new film's name? Alien: Paradise Lost? I think it's good but maybe just Paradise Lost might have been just fine. Either way still looking forward to it.

Also going to start getting more active here again soon, been missing the site lol

JANN ELDERPREDATOR (talk) (Contribs) 12:27, October 1, 2015 (UTC)

Heya. Good to hear you've been collecting, I picked up a bunch more novels lately as well as the oldschool Alien Trilogy VHS box set. Completely useless — I don't even have a VCR any more — but it's awesome :D
I'm not really liking how the new film now has Alien in the title. Just Paradise Lost would've been far better. I thought the whole idea was to make Prometheus its own series that was separate from Alien, and that the sequels were supposed to move even further away from the Alien series. Now it looks like they've totally changed their minds, just like they did during production of the first movie. It all sounds like a bit of a mess. To be honest, I'm not particularly excited by the new film at the moment. I'm not a huge fan of the first and I worry the new one won't be much better.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:58, October 2, 2015 (UTC)

Chestburster clothing issue. Edit

I think sometimes adults do indeed remove some armor or clothing, Tequila had her armor removed in AVP (2010), she was wearing the armor before her abduction but when you free her, she is wearing a grey vest or something. --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 20:35, October 21, 2015 (UTC)

Hmmm, I dunno. There's nothing to say her armour wasn't accidentally pulled off in the struggle when she was captured. She could even have taken it off herself aboard the dropship before it crashed, as an armoured vest could be cumbersome and get in the way aboard an aircraft. Not saying that's what happened, but I don't think there's any solid proof that it was deliberately removed by the Xenos to help the Chestburster get out.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:45, October 22, 2015 (UTC)
Adults are known to remove facial gear or helmets as well to allow facehuggers to latch on to their hosts, Aliens: berserkers is a source for this. Its up to you what you want to do, I just thought I let you know about avp is all. Seen you been busy lately, good job :) has Toa been back on yet? --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 12:59, October 22, 2015 (UTC)
Pulling off a helmet to let a Facehugger take hold seems a little different to undressing the torso so it can get back out again. For one, helmets or hats are easier to claw off. As far as I can recall, Xenos have never been shown undressing someone's torso for any reason. Again, I'm not saying you're wrong, I just don't think there's enough evidence to say it happens.
Nope, no sign of Toa, no word from him either :( I hope he's just busy, would be good to see him back here. He did tons of good work on here!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 13:11, October 22, 2015 (UTC)

Messed up Mike Tanaka's gallery Edit

I've tried to give Mike Tanaka a gallery and add some of his sketches to the wiki but it's all gone to hell and don't know how to repair it. Thought it would be best to let you know so you could tinker with it. 

Also, Mike has a sketch of Waits and his family somewhere but I can't find those pictures.

Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 22:29, November 9, 2015 (UTC)

I noticed, and I've just fixed it. Your were forgetting to put </gallery> at the end of the image gallery. You have to sandwich the images between <gallery> and </gallery>, and then it should all arrange itself nicely. No harm done :)
Out of curiosity, where are these images coming from? Are they in the game somewhere?--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:16, November 10, 2015 (UTC)
Mike is nowhere to be seen in the game, there WAS a single archive log of him though. 
All of his sketches are from his Twitter page. He's done Ransome, Lingard, his family, Axel and the Xeno itself. He's also done waits but can't find a picture for it anywhere.
Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 21:14, November 10, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I remember Tanaka being mentioned. Thanks for clearing up the origin of the pictures! Good work!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 08:52, November 11, 2015 (UTC)

Alien IsolationS? Edit

There seems to be a duplicate page of Alien Isolation that someone has created called Alien Isolations.

Tried linking D Turner's appearances to Isolation the game but it just comes up with IsolationS.

This dude. http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/96.245.11.193

He's also messing up other pages which i've undone.

Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 21:50, November 22, 2015 (UTC)

I just noticed his disruptive editing, thanks for clearing all that up. I'm afraid I was away over the weekend and I haven't had a chance to get on until now. Thanks also for pointing out that duplicate page he's created; I've deleted it. He's been on before trying to add info about a "Sulaco Pack" DLC he claims is being released for Alien: Isolation, which is obviously bogus. I'll leave him a warning and if he comes on doing this again I'll issue a block.
Thanks for the housekeeping while I was away! Oh yeah, and the reason you couldn't link to Alien: Isolation was probably because you were forgetting to put the colon (:) in the name. You can also use the template {{AI}} to quickly and easily add a link to the game!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 10:15, November 23, 2015 (UTC)

Tekken 7 Edit

Do you think the Predator should be in Tekken 7? If yes, https://www.change.org/p/namco-bandai-namco-entertainment-katsuhiro-harada-20th-century-fox-jim-thomas-john-thomas-put-predator-in-tekken-7/edit?utm_source=guides&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=petition_tips

WikiaEdit

I didn't see any of these films. But is nice to see that some Admin have nicely edited Wiki, Talk Pages, Profile etc. I searching for Admin like you. --Matthew Bowyer Fan (talk) (Contribs) 16:34, November 26, 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for saying so! Sadly I don't get to edit on here as much as I used to, and there's still a lot that needs improving, but it's always nice to hear my work is appreciated.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 16:50, November 26, 2015 (UTC)

Alien Film? Edit

I'm somewhat ashamed to say this, but the only "Alien" film I've seen is the first AVP.  I know I'm behind by several decades.  I tried finding the first Alien, but neither Netflix nor Hulu has it.  Or any of the others for that matter.  Do you know of an alternate (preferably free) way to watch it?  TheMindOfMadness (talk) (Contribs) 03:51, December 4, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for my late reply, I've been away all weekend.
I'm afraid I honestly wouldn't know — I've had the Alien films on home video practically since I was a kid, so I have no idea where you can find them online.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 10:00, December 7, 2015 (UTC)

Greetings Edit

Hi, What's up? Cstoczyn (talk) (Contribs) 02:19, December 6, 2015 (UTC)

Hi there. Not much going on, I haven't been on here as much as I used to, which is a shame. The wiki's quite quiet these days actually. Was there something in particular you wanted?--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 13:54, December 7, 2015 (UTC)

Just dropping by. Edit

Hey Leigh, just dropping by to see how you are friend. I have been steadily adding info from the comics, as well as adding new character pages, unfortunately I haven't even scratched the surface yet, still quite a lot to do lol.

I didn't know the Predator novel was out yet, do you by any chance have it? --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 12:05, December 11, 2015 (UTC)

Heya Crute :) I'm good thanks. Haven't been on quite as much as I would've liked lately, but life's been pretty busy! Still, today I've managed to start setting up articles for some of the new stuff that's been announced recently; there's the new Predator comic on the way and also a behind the scenes book about the filming of Aliens coming out in the not-too distant future. I noticed you'd been working on the comics stuff, good job!
Afraid I don't have the new novel. I honestly wasn't too excited about it before release for some reason. I really like what I've heard since though, and I really wanna read it, but sadly I just have such a huge backlog of unread novels to get through I haven't even bothered buying it yet haha. Plus I have a friend who keeps lending me brilliant books which really isn't helping :D I'll pick it up at some point. Maybe nearer the release of the next one.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 12:26, December 11, 2015 (UTC)
Glad you're ok, yeah its understandable, personal lives can take up time I know haha. The traffic on this site will get higher though when the new films come out, so be prepared for that lol.
I am not sure what to make of the Predator novel, I haven't got it yet but the image of Wolf and the sewer, which seems to indicate a reference to Requiem is kind of severely off-putting. If Fox had any sense, they would ignore that film forever, bad enough I have to get picture from that film. What is curious is that this rage war is supposed to the predator novels like how Shadows was the Alien one, yet Aliens seem to have a big part in the Predator one, heck the sequel is called Alien: incursion and the third one is an AVP novel. --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 12:51, December 11, 2015 (UTC)
From what I've heard, Incursion has literally nothing to do with Requiem, they just used that image because they're too cheap to make a proper cover haha. Kinda like how they used screenshots from Aliens: Colonial Marines (!) for the covers of the last two Alien books. I do miss how they used to actually make covers for the novels :(
Story-wise, from what I've heard, all three might as well be AVP novels, because they're all about the Aliens fighting the Predators, but I guess they wanted to build up to it with the Predator and Alien books first, to build some hype. Still, I've actually heard the new novel's really good.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 13:51, December 11, 2015 (UTC)
Well that gives me hope, As for the artist error, yeah it is in the second issue of the Prometheus one. The artist gave a facehugger five digits instead of four, the fifth replacing the air sacs, before that it was drawn correctly. --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 14:57, December 11, 2015 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Thanks, I'll add a note about that if you haven't already :) --Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:27, December 14, 2015 (UTC)

New MessageEdit

Why is Alien vs Predator: Requiem not metnioned in the main page? Altrich (talk) (Contribs) 11:48, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

What do you mean? None of the films are specifically mentioned by name on the main page (although I have been thinking about changing that).--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:27, December 14, 2015 (UTC)

MKX bullet points Edit

Does the page NOT have to include bullet points when listing the movie references? I just think if they were bullet pointed it would make them easier to find/read individually Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 18:34, January 16, 2016 (UTC)

Sure, I suppose they can be bullet-pointed. I mostly took issue with the info being moved out of the DLC section and into the trivia, because the page is about the DLC, so any references it adds are hardly trivial. I see you've re-bulleted them in the Predator DLC section, so that's fine.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:51, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
Good to know Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 10:37, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

Why no levels section? Edit

ACM's level section is only half green so..... Besides, you've gotta start somewhere right? If you don't like them being red I'll just take away the link format so they'll be normal text color for the time being.

Out of the entirety of the users on this wiki surely someone would be able to create pages on the missions? Isn't the whole point in wikias expansion of info? I'm just creating a starting point for people to work off of. 

If nobody get's to it after a while, I'll move onto creating pages for the the levels. Is that okay? I've got my hands caught up with the whole Archive log thing at the mo.

Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 10:05, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

Well to be honest, I've been considering deleting the level pages for Aliens: Colonial Marines for some time, I just haven't got around to actually doing it. Whoever started doing them only did the first few (in fact only the Mission 1 page is anything like what you'd call "complete") and then gave up, and that was back when the game came out two and a half years ago. But more than that — this isn't a gaming site. People aren't likely to come hunting here for walkthroughs of Alien video games when there are far better, far more popular and far more qualified sites out there providing that kind of info. And none of the other games in the Alien/Predator/Alien vs. Predator franchise have such pages on here. So long as the plot and characters are covered, I don't see the need to go into the specifics of gameplay for every single section of the game.
While I agree it's good to expand the wiki with new info, at the same time you have to ask, "Is there any point?" In this case it seems like a lot of work would go into making pages for every level of Alien: Isolation for no real benefit. Personally, I think they'd be completely unnecessary, just like the Colonial Marines ones are. Your thoughts?
Oh, and I forgot to say before, sorry for my late reply to your previous question. As per usual I was away all weekend and didn't get on the wiki at all :) --Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 10:53, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
Okay. Point taken. I'll get to removing the mission list as well as the ones on the ACM page whilst I'm at it. Cheers for putting up with me. Btw what's going to happen to the Mission pages for ACM then? Should they be removed? Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 17:25, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
Haha I wouldn't call it "putting up" with you, it's good to have you here and I'm perfectly happy to discuss and debate changes to the site :) And you've been doing good work with the Isolation-related pages, something I've been really slow at getting around to, so thanks for that. As for the ACM pages, I'll delete them. I'll see if there's anything on the Mission 1 page that needs moving elsewhere, but the others are pretty sparse and I can't see anything that'll need copying.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:21, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

The Boltgun Edit

See, this is where it gets confuzing. It wouldnt make sense for Chief to have written the message regarding "weaponizing the tools" since he was the one who created the boltgun himself. Let alone under desperate circumstances. 

So it must have been Waits

So  actually thinking about it, it definetly WASN'T regarding the boltgun...Unless Porter had made a previous boltgun....

So either the message was written ages ago by Waits who was complaining to Porter about a weaponized tool or it was Porter who was complaining to a fellow colleague about weaponizing a tool.....I'm getting confuzed just thinking about it. Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 14:53, January 22, 2016 (UTC)

The way I see it, Waits is the station Marshal — if he wanted to talk to Porter about building dangerous weapons, he wouldn't go down there and scribble a note on a board. I figured he was the one sending the letters, and Chief then passed the message on to his men by writing the note. Perhaps he's having a joke with his men at the Marshal's expense, making it look like they're the ones responsible when all along it's him building these things. Or perhaps it really is his men who are guilty and Porter's genuinely annoyed with them for it, and it's only when the Alien starts snatching people that he builds the bolt gun, perhaps inspired by what his men have been up to. Either way, it wouldn't seem to make sense for the note to have been written by Waits, and anyway it's signed with a C, which I presume stands for Chief.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 15:10, January 22, 2016 (UTC)

Aliens neca? Edit

What happened to the Aliens NECA page? I swear there was a page on this wiki that listed all series of neca figures for Aliens but I cant find it anywhere now? Either its had a complete makeover or... Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 17:20, January 27, 2016 (UTC)

I have no idea. I started this page just recently purely because we didn't seem to have one already, and I thought it was a bit of an oversight. But unfortunately I don't know much about the NECA figures and after getting that far I found a contradictory source on exactly which figures were part of which series, so I stalled.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:34, January 28, 2016 (UTC)

Ah yes. That was the one. I swear I couldn't find it anywhere. Btw the Predator neca page as well as the Neca page in general is very linear when it comes to listing figures. Pretty sure the Aliens neca page you just showed me has more info on that than the other two pages combined. Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 22:13, January 28, 2016 (UTC)

The Predator one (I assume you mean this one?) seems to only be about figures from the 2010 film, not the company's Predator line in general (I'd probably merge that once we get a decent NECA Predator page set up, but until then I'll leave it). And yeah, the main NECA page is very bare. Like I said, I basically know jack about the figures and concrete info on their back-catalogue seems hard to find. I keep meaning to ask on a forum somewhere if anyone can point me in the direction of that info, but I've got too much else on the go at the minute lol. Of course, if you know anything at all, feel free to help out, but don't worry if you're as clueless as me :) --Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:17, January 29, 2016 (UTC)
Don't know much about the neca figurines myself except not to trust the information given on the bios, they are absurdly ridiculous lol --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 11:30, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

Wiki policies and codes Edit

Hey buddy, I am going to be reviewing the policies, rules and so on of another wiki in a min, and since you have done a good job on the polices on this wiki, I am thinking of using and adding the same policies, rules etc, Let me know your thoughts, I won't be adding anything there without your input on the matter. in the meantime I will be testing my user page there to see if the code for mine here will work there. --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 12:08, January 29, 2016 (UTC)

You mean copying our policies over to the other Wikia? Sure, I've no problem with that. It should all work fine. The only thing I can think of that won't work properly is the little header box I made that goes at the top — while the box and the text in it should copy OK, the little Weyland-Yutani logos obviously won't because you won't have those image files on the other wiki, but I doubt you'll want those anyway and they're easy enough to remove or change for different images. Let me know if you need any help!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 10:16, February 1, 2016 (UTC)
Further to my previous message, I've added a policy page on plagiarism in light of recent events.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 12:22, February 1, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks and good work on that, I checked the page out and its very nice and right to the point while making the reader aware of good faith. As you already know plagiarism is always something that has been frowned upon and against wiki rules, but now thanks to you it is no longer an unwritten rule, most of the rules and policies we and most other wikis have is usually a part of the core princibles of wikia and wikipedia itself but some wikis don't have any these polices written down, though the presence of it usually remains as a lot of editors have excellent behavior and are aware of the polices from previously editing wikipedia but too often there are those who are not aware of such policies on wikia, assuming that there are different rules which admittedly is sometimes true and so go on to make edits that harm the wiki, this is why I always believe its important to have policy pages created on wikies, even if the rules are already there on wikipedia and widely known, some people just do need reminding that we all go by them. --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 11:00, February 2, 2016 (UTC)

From JohnsThroneEdit

Another admin has already sent a message to Smijes08, and as far as I'm concerned, y'all are handling it, and that's all that matters. I'm more than happy to be cordial because of how well you guys are acting. There's no hard feelings, it just needed to be brought to attention since we've had to handle some plagiarism in the past. Thanks and have a good one

Plasmacaster Rename Edit

Hey I noticed you renamed "Plasma Caster" to "Plasmacaster" Why was that? Deathblade 100 (talk) (Contribs) 20:24, February 8, 2016 (UTC)

I noticed a lot of the Predator weapons on here have no solid reference for their names, and I also realised that Predator: Concrete Jungle (the video game) does give names for many of those weapons. "Plasmacaster" is simply how the name is presented in the game. I intended to change and properly reference a bunch of the other weapons based on info from the game, but now that you've queried this I'll wait and see if you have any input you'd like to make.
For what it's worth, I probably should've opened a discussion on the matter first, or at least better explained my reasons when I did the rename. Sorry about that! If you have anything you'd like to say about it, let me know.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:17, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
The special two disc edition of predator has a section about the weaponry of the predator and has given names. --PredTriLaser The Cruentus(Talk) 11:28, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
That's true. I'll also check that tonight. Although I'd argue a released game that prominently uses these names during gameplay supersedes a behind the scenes feature on a DVD... Furthermore, having investigated some more, is seems Aliens versus Predator 2 also used many of the same names as Concrete Jungle for Predator weapons. Still, I will look and see how the weapons are named on the DVD. We can always list both as alternate names if there are indeed differences.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 12:01, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
I'm going to reply here, so that hopefully you both get it — I checked the Predator 2 DVD (the DVD for the first film doesn't have a dedicated piece on the Predator's weapons, but I might re-watch the making-of documentary if I get a chance and see if that mentions them at all) and the names used in the special features are all... well, kinda weird and frustratingly vague. Like "Telescoping Spear" for the Combi-Stick or "Smart Weapon" for the Smart-Disc. I'd be inclined to use the names from the games just because a) they seem far more widespread and b) we have at least two games corroborating each other. If anything, the weapon names on the DVD special features are more like descriptions than names.--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:15, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Bolaji Badejo video Edit

Was able to replace the screen test vid with one that wasnt blocked. Made it hella big though and I dont know how to make it smaller 0_0 Heatlineheard (talk) (Contribs) 21:09, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Only just seeing your message now, but I fixed the video last night :) You'd put an extra couple of ]] in the middle of the video link, before the part that would've made it just a thumbnail. Deleted them and it's back to normal. It's a shame we can't somehow directly upload videos to the Wiki like images so they wouldn't vanish just because they got removed from YouTube. Thanks for fixing it!--Buck-ark LEIGH BURNE(Talk) 09:00, February 11, 2016 (UTC)
