Your Wiki Work

Thanks for all your regular contributions to the wiki. Just a few comments:

  • Can you make sure that you include links to other pages. Obviously it doesn't matter if the page exists or not .... This is done as follows:
[[Page Name]]
  • It is also useful to put pages into a category as it gives the wiki some structure. A full list of categories is available at Special:Categories but feel free to add others as you think appropriate. To add a page to the category called "Catgegory Name" put the following at the bottom of a page:
[[Category: Category Name]]

Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks again for your contributions -- Bad CO 20:03, 3 May 2006 (BST)

Hartlepool Article Edit

Thanks R_H - surprised anyone takes any interest in the place. Only picked up on it 'cos I was born there. True about the monkey - bloody thing's followed me all around the world. Cheers, Cliff.


Rabid - please accept this promotion to Wiki Sysop as a token of our thanks! DarthDoctr 21:17, 12 June 2007 (BST)


RH - You don't fancy having a trawl through the Dead Ends and MOD ACTION REQUIRED do you?? It will help to keep your delete finger in good shape as there are a few bone posts in there that have slipped through the net. JuniorBod 09:53, 27 June 2007 (BST)

Duplicate Info?

RH - Re-enactment Walt and Walts contain much the same stuff. Can pages be merged on the wiki?

User: Minime-maniac

Just to let you know that Mrs Simon_de_Montfort-Broughton has recently asked that we remove her husband's ARRSEpedia entry. Needless to say I declined the offer! I therefore suspect that user Minime-maniac may be her! -- Bad CO 20:38, 31 March 2008 (BST)

Sorry - libel

Yeah fine so I deleted a post and got libel and slander confused. Unlike most of you guys I went straight to the horse's mouth and contacted the guy's wife. All I could find was a scared young woman with a screaming unhappy baby. Picking on a guy is all well and good but it looks like this has gone way too far, if in fact it was true - most of it seems a wind up from NigelW. Now I used to have a lot of respect for HM Forces but this is not doing them any credit and seems like a bl**dy horrible thing to be doing - but hey it's a matter for your own minds (yeah a Yank with a conscience - it's a first). But also having spoken to her yeah it looks like legal action might be heading this way.


I'll believe that when I see it. The was nothing slanderous or libelous in that entry. There could have been, but I'm not that stupid and left some content out. I am aware M-M that you're a former USAF airman who's resident in the UK and involved with Sir Simon's re-enactment group?

Sorry to hear about his wife's torment. Simon should grow up and stop dressing up like something he's obviously not and bullshitting his way through life as a high-ranking soldier. He might also want to consider thinking like one? Some positions are indefensible. If for his missus' sake.

Wembley Stadium

Thanks for the edit on the Stadium mate. I was going to liven it up but I was more interested in getting some shut-eye. Anyway, thanks again.

Not giving you grief

Seriously mate, I'm not having a go. I was just saying thanks. Even though I'm a SysOp, I don't have a clue on most things apart from creating AFV /MBT / Aviation articles.

Embra Castle

Yep, looks better RH. Cheers. Mangonel 16:01, 27 May 2008 (BST)


Cheers. Would you believe it, the Enter key on my Japlap has gone tits. I should put a notice re on my page I think. Wingated 16:45, 2 June 2008 (BST)

  • Hams, I can't do an external link (want to put one on the Hitler article where I've just fingered him as a Spurs supporter - see You Tube "Hitler and his Tottenham mates miss fourth spot." )Got to link this one, really I must. Keep buggeritup though. Please halp? Ta Wingated 20:21, 2 June 2008 (BST)
  • Pls could you direct me to where I can work out how to add Catagories to new pages? I done some but theylook all mong without them... Ta Wingated 17:50, 4 June 2008 (BST)

I know I run off half-a-dozen the other morning : ) - all from the Wanted List. I just felt hesitant - being a brand-new show-up of a dim bint with the military experience and knowledge being a bone-idle national-service clerk for bedpans in Northern Israel in the mid-80's. (I'm born London, dual nationality, dragged off to Mum's native Land of Milk, Honey and Fuckups in 1979. Cheers, Mum. Appreciated it). So I didn't want to kick off starting pages on stuff I know sod-all about, no matter how relevant they clearly are to the main ARRSE themes and preoccupations. That's just takign the piss in ym book, even if the presence of a stubby might prompt the real thing. Anyway. Enter key has had it, chances of getting a new puter are currently lottery-dependant (not that I've ever bought any tix, mind) so please: in the meantime, if I stick up a Righteous New Page (and I've got the hang of categories - ta for that), you would still consider looking them up and organising them into paragraphs where necessary? Wingated 22:31, 7 June 2008 (BST)

  • More? More New Articles? from me? My puter is permanently fup duck pending possible lottery jollies which would be considerably enabled if I ever bothered to get along to Spar and buy the tix. So please, if you see any New Article By Me which aren't of instant-delete class, would you come along and sort them into paragraghs - the only thing I can't improvise? Please? And thanx for the Wingate pic and Rammstein page. Rammstein are sorted but QOTSA RULE. PS Am bint not dude :} Wingated 22:47, 7 June 2008 (BST)

Been working. Up to elbows in drunk's ejections and stuff. Boo. However. No pictures I has of desert bint when sexy me but ask Mum I will. Keep your shorts in meantime. Or try. Wingated 23:08, 24 June 2008 (BST)

Thanks for the edit

I'm a man of too many words when I get going :) Professorbob 22:46, 25 July 2008 (BST)


Sorry, guess I should have explained better. I meant the murderous, canniballistic family from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

--Ritch 15:58, 15 December 2008 (UTC)


Ahh sorry. If I knew it was you who wrote it, I would have phrased my rant differently. :D

  • Cough* It just needed a polish up!


Appreciate the edits and formatting to Home Computer. Thanks!--ScouseD 17:29, 21 May 2009 (UTC)


Like the updates to SR71, but I’m pretty certain that NASA retired the last of them in Oct 1999. See No big deal though and the page has certainly been improved. --ScouseD 09:58, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Good updates. A spiffing job all round :) --ScouseD 22:03, 27 May 2009 (UTC)


Yeah, seen a few edits on 'ere. A lot of promising talent (not in that way like... lol) --Ritch 22:28, 30 June 2009 (UTC)


Much appreciated, Rabid. Thanks too for following up with pic and caps policy formats on other pages. --ScouseD 13:41, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Minister Doh Nut

Hey. Just read the update. What's been going on?


Ahh right. Well he's back anyway. Probably have to start a whole new page soon, or at least vet it when someone enthusiastically knocks one up. --Ritch 01:58, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Washing Machine Caption

You've nailed it mate! --Ritch 21:52, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

'Deep Battle' Query

What shall we do with the Deep Battle page? I restored it after Laits little tantrum thinking he might actually bother to tidy it up. Doesn't look that way. Shall we bin it?

    • Just an edit to say that I've deleted it. Just re-read it and 99% doesn't make sense.**

    • Well watching that throw its toys out of the pram has cheered my otherwise rubbish day up. Cheers for that. :D **


Page that was merged (Balkans) is still linked to by 11 other pages with no redirect to The_Balkans. It's still showing as the 'most wanted' Wanted page. I've no idea how to create a redirect page - but it must be easier and cleaner than changing all 11 links (?)--Tax Tw-t 13:14, 20 January 2010 (UTC)


Aww shucks, tis a real pleasure to be back. I really hope now to stick around regular like. Got the wanted pages list to be going on with on with but if there's anything you reckon needs some attention that I could do, I'd be happy to have a go. Wingated 15:55, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
