Welcome to my talk page. This is where you bug me about stuff on the wiki and complain about how lousy some template or edit looks. I usually don't bite so feel free to ask me anything about the wiki. For off wiki matters please use my MRT email or click here to send me a message.

Please create a new section for new messages and requests - that way I can follow my inbox. Click here or the plus button (or "Add Topic" in vector) at the top of the screen to create a new section. When you reply, use indents with a colon (:) at the beginning of the line. Sign all posts with four tildes (~~~~).

If you want a fast response follow the tips above, otherwise I have to clean this page up before I can even figure out who needs what. Thanks.

HTML codes

Chief. I saw that you can use html tags for underline and strikethrow are there any more html codes you can use?

--Tom Pairs 19:33, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

There are a couple, but most HTML has MediaWiki equivalents. For instance tables are handled through a separate syntax. However span and div tags do work as you would expect. Chiefbozx 02:07, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

You forgot to indent. Whatever. Anyway, you've got the permissions to upload images now. Have a nice day. chiefbozxtalkcontibs 11:29, 31 August 2013 (EDT)

Poke (can I upload images?) Logiblocs (talk) 13:21, 2 October 2013 (EDT)

Sorry, image upload is currently restricted to Trusted members and up, we may consider adjusting this at our next GSM. chiefbozxtalkcontibs 20:07, 2 October 2013 (EDT)
Ok, thanks. Is there any other way I can get an image on the wiki? Logiblocs (talk) 02:14, 3 October 2013 (EDT)
Logiblocs, you can send the image to a Trusted member via email, or you can talk to a mod and send it to mod@minecartrapidtransit.net. Be sure to ask them beforehand though. --Hawksfan1010 (talk) 08:32, 3 October 2013 (EDT)
Ok, Thanks! Logiblocs (talk) 03:07, 4 October 2013 (EDT)

Missing user page perms

Poke (I don't seem to be able to create my own user page despite being trusted) --RX37 (talk) 09:47, 6 October 2013 (EDT)

Hm, it looks like you are able to create pages (you did in revision 2562 of RX37 Industries), this means you should be able to create your userpage. Go to User:RX37 and try creating it - If not, then go edit ten or fifteen other pages. The ability to edit your page is given to you by the wiki software, unless I was to do some tinkering. chiefbozxtalkcontibs 01:21, 7 October 2013 (EDT)
Thanks for the help. Also it seems that I cannot upload images either, so I probably was left out of the trusted list anyway.RX37 (talk) 12:53, 31 October 2013 (EDT)

Image perms missing

Hi chief, I cannot upload images using the link at the top of the wiki despite being trusted. It says I don't have permission. --Jmckeen (talk) 09:27, 2 November 2013 (EDT)

Fixed! chiefbozxtalkcontibs 18:47, 3 November 2013 (EST)
Thanks :D --Jmckeen (talk) 15:56, 6 November 2013 (EST)

Spawn Transit??

Hey chief,

When will the transit centre begin construction? I need to know because I would like to build my rail lines soon.

You forgot to indent again! Anyway, as I have outlined on my projects doc, I hope to groundbreak this weekend. chiefbozxtalkcontibs 09:52, 18 September 2013 (EDT)


Projects?

Chief,

I'd be happy to work on I-200, the Orange Line, and TerminusConnect if you need extra hands to do it.

-Sam

Benie (talk) 13:48, 31 October 2013 (EDT)
To be honest, I don't particularly like the idea of an InterMap running next to my peaceful, quiet community (Big Lake). Any chance I-200 could be underground, under the lake? The exit would have to be redone, but I'll allow it there.

Main Page

Hello Chief, I just thought I'd let you know that I noticed that the server has updated to Minecraft 1.6.4, but the box on the main page of the wiki still says that the server is on Minecraft 1.6.2. If you have some time, you might want to fix that. - Diemundz Diemundz (talk) 22:41, 13 November 2013 (EST)

Looks like Thomas took care of it. :P --Hawks (talk) 08:59, 15 November 2013 (EST)

Image Upload

Hey, can I please get permissions to upload images? Thanks, mfish125

Done! Actually, thomasfyfe beat me to it, but you should be good to go. chiefbozxtalkcontibs 13:51, 23 November 2013 (EST)

Image upload

Hi chief, minecrafter0505 here, I'd like to ask for image uploading permissions so I can add pictures to my pages ;) Awaiting Permissions, mc0505 EDIT: I've now seen the thrusted only access, so question solved itself... Minecrafter0505 (talk) 15:33, 11 December 2013 (EST)

Minecrafter, If you have a Skype or can upload any of these images to the internet, myself and other Trusteds can upload them for you. :D -Sam
The best way to get images posted if you're not Trusted+ is to email them to a moderator or trusted member. chiefbozxtalkcontibs 19:38, 11 December 2013 (EST)

I-200

Hey chief, Is there any way I-200 could run through riverside aswell? Noah (talk) 12:23, 14 December 2013 (EST) nopro988

Where's mah user page!

Seems as if, even though i have made several edits and made a new page, I am still without a user page (or permissions to make one) Bensismith (talk) 17:40, 23 December 2013 (EST)

Ok, seems to be fixed anyway... That's sods law i guess, huh? Bensismith (talk) 10:43, 25 December 2013 (EST)

Typo ALERT!

Just realised chief: your signature says "talk, contibs"... To my understanding, it should be "contribs". Just putting it out there, Bensismith (talk) 10:47, 25 December 2013 (EST)

Uploading images on wiki

can i have perms to upload images to wiki plz :P ≈≈≈≈ Music3_0

Someone beat me to it. chiefbozxtalkcontibs 09:48, 13 January 2014 (EST)
LOL thanks to the both of you guys :P

Templates from Wikipedia

Hey chief, can I possibly copy a table of contents template from Wikipedia? The link to it is here . I do think that the license is compatible, however I do not know how to attribute. Any policy on using Wikipedia code? Skelezomperman (talk) 21:32, 16 January 2014 (EST)

As far as I know, the table of contents will always stick to the left of an article. If you want it to go elsewhere, use the code from {{infobox}} and throw the magic word __TOC__ in it. Wikipedia uses a license called the GNU Fee Documentation License, which actually isn't compatible with the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 3.0 Unported license that we're using here, so technically you're not supposed to copy-'n-paste straight over. However, you're welcome to remake an adaptation of it for use here. Hope this helps! chiefbozxtalkcontibs 21:36, 16 January 2014 (EST)

Image Permissions

Dear chief, can I now get permissions to upload images, as I am Trusted now? ;) Minecrafter0505 (talk) 14:42, 1 April 2014 (EDT)

Poke

Hey Chief. Can I have permissions to upload files on the wiki? Thanks, Logiblocs (talk) 17:23, 1 April 2014 (EDT)

Name Changes

Chief,

You have some facts wrong on the Name Change Page, such as you can't change the name to chiefbozx and/or Frumple even if you guys change your name, if I'm not mistaken.

-Yoshi

If we change our names first, then our names become available and someone else can claim them, as explained here. chiefbozxtalkcontribs 19:39, 14 April 2014 (EDT)
We should probably put a rule against trolling with new names, right? -MinecraftYoshi26
Yes, in our new policies we will include a "Username Policy", including something along this line. Might want to post something in the GSM folder. chiefbozxtalkcontribs 19:56, 14 April 2014 (EDT)

Pokey Pokey/Image Permissions

I can haz image uploading rights! Welcome99 is in the wiki! (Talk to the hand!) #YOLOSWAGGINS 01:42, 8 May 2014 (EDT)


Me too please.... screenshots are waiting :P

Just as soon as you can, please!

Tarheelscouse (talk) 11:54, 8 May 2014 (EDT)

Sorry to poke you and add yet ANOTHER image perm request, but could I please have permission to upload to the wiki? Sorry to bother you and thanks so much, best (talk) 13:47, 8 May 2014 (EDT)

Transcluding User templates

Chief, I am in the process of making a template for franchises here. Is it possible that that template can get transcluded onto other pages? Thanks. Skelezomperman (talk) (contribs) (email) 21:15, 10 July 2014 (EDT)

Poke

On behalf of all the new trusteds, I poke you for image permissions. :P Skelezomperman (talk) (contribs) (email) 12:50, 13 July 2014 (EDT)
P.S. I've noticed that several demoted/retired mods still have mod permissions, and none of the new mods have mod permissions on the wiki.

Name Changes

Hi chief (and other admins). I am aware that you have bureaucratic powers. Is it possible that if a player changes their name radically (e.g., Frumple to Tacomonster), that you could make a method to ask admins for a username change on the wiki, like on Wikipedia? Not that I plan on changing my name, but I think that should be done. Thanks, Skelezomperman (talk) (contribs) (email) 15:22, 4 February 2015 (EST)

Hi Skele, Due to a complication in how the wiki was installed we do not have an extension installed yet to handle that. Over the next couple of weeks we will be looking to get that installed. Please be patient, as only Frumple can actually do this, and our server configuration is a bit weird from a "typical" MW installation. chiefbozxtalkcontribs 14:35, 6 February 2015 (EST)

Smite

As of gamma all staff can /smite, unless that was changed. KittyCat11231 - THE LLAMAS ARE COMING!!! Though they're stuck in traffic on the NJ Turnpike so give them time. (talk) 15:56, 16 March 2015 (EDT)

REALLY? :P

Chief, you named the VMTA lines after Pokemon games? :P Really? Enjineer30302 (talk) 19:56, 19 March 2015 (EDT)

I'm pretty certain he named the metro lines after gems and some of the Pokemon games also happened to have some of those names too, as some of the, were named after gems. That seems like the more logical answer to me at least. Bensismith (talk) 20:01, 19 March 2015 (EDT)
Bensi wins. Six out of twelve lines happen to match up with Pokémon games but Amethyst, Azurite and Citrine are other gems/birthstones. Airport, Victory and Waterport Link are shuttle services and so are named after the area they serve. chiefbozxtalkcontribs 00:04, 21 March 2015 (EDT)
 :P Yeah but still, isn't one of the places in Vermillion named after a place in some Pokemon game? Enjineer30302 (talk) 14:18, 21 March 2015 (EDT)

Poke - Does the Chief want an Minecart Public Radio Member Station?

Poke! Well, I'd want to know :) Enjineer30302 (talk) 14:19, 21 March 2015 (EDT)

Pokey Pokey

Master Chief, what's the rank you need to upload pics to the wiki? (This is during gamma) Valach - Gimmeh da bananas now! :D (talk) 12:28, 17 April 2015 (EDT)

Hey Valach, I know I'm not Chief ;P, but you must be of the Trustee rank or higher. Thanks! hnt (talk) 15:05, 17 April 2015 (EDT)
I'm a Councillor :P Valach - Gimmeh da bananas now! :D (talk) 15:58, 17 April 2015 (EDT)
Okay, then just wait for Chief to see this, and give you perms. However, since you are currently banned, you may not receive it, but that's the Admins call. Thanks! hnt (talk) 16:46, 17 April 2015 (EDT)
Done. chiefbozxtalkcontribs 02:47, 18 April 2015 (EDT)

Airport proposal double-check

Hey chief! Can you check your email? I've sent you one regarding that did you approve my Thunderbird International Airport proposal. Thanks! Decorminecraft (talk) 17:59, 4 May 2015 (EDT)

Ward 7: Discussion? When?

You seem to have rolled back my edit that you do not allow double wards in the VPS. However, you also stated that we have discussed it in you edit comment... when? Never have we discussed of double wards. Then again, I posted this so that I can discuss about double wards, and never did you see it. Until we conclude this discussion, Janghwa city does not solely sees its ward being singular.

Additional question, what's with Formosa and Sealane sharing wards then? If not, then can you tell me their statuses?
HanSangYoon 03:04, 18 December 2015 (EST)

Han, my apologies, this was a mistake on my behalf, I was meant to have discussed this with you earlier this week. But I had a discussion with chief about this regarding Sealane and it was decided that you can only have one ward, and the ward that applies to you depends entirely on what ward you city hall is in. Sealane's city hall is in the south which is Ward 5 therefore Sealane's postcode is SL5. Hope this clears things up. Again my apologies. RLcrafters (talk) 03:23, 18 December 2015 (EST)
+10 RLcrafters. Cities will obviously cross ward boundaries but they should only have one post code. chiefbozxtalkcontribs 14:43, 18 December 2015 (EST)
