"... Cinnamon cocks!" · (talk) 03:04, October 1, 2011 (UTC)


Hi Jack,

my name is Chris, I'm new around here. I am the founder of a Red Dead Redemption Posse/Clan called the West Elizabeth Shadow Wolves (Shadow Wolves), I was trying to create my own infobox for my posse page but I couldn't figure out how. I wanted one not exact but similar to the one found here:

Whenever I do try to create my own it comes up non-existent, evidently I am doing something wrong. The reason I would like to create my own infobox template is because I would like to have more catagories than the one provided has. I was also wondering if there was someway to lock the page once I'm finished with it so that it couldn't be vandalised and still be accessible to myself so that I may make changes when needed?

RE: RE: Greetings, I Could Use Your Help

Thanks for the prompt response Jack, I appreciate your willingness to help me out. As silly as it may sound I’m not sure how to go about creating a page on a wikia.

RE: RE: Re: Greetings, I Could Use Your Help

I found the shortcut to the "create a page" page, and attempted to create my own template and failed.

Background change

Jack, Can we try to change the wiki's background? I'm talking like instead of being a black background it being like the colours of the game cover. You know red with dark redish/blackish. That all. Dragonhunter 2336 12:19, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Mesa De La Luna Pic

The existing pic is just very dark (because it's at night) and, as such, doesn't really show the color and details of the rock formation as a daytime picture would. I think it makes a good secondary picture, but would prefer a daytime shot as the primary ... hmmm, I was going to say, "like the other pictures in the region," but I note that several of them are nighttime as well (Alta Cabeza, Roca de Madera, etc.). I guess for me that region is about the red rocks under the desert sun.

Fist of Dollars

Dear Jack

You may know already that I have created a Facebook campaign called Who Else Wants More for Red Dead Redemption. I've got question though. How long and how notice must the Campaign make till it's mention on Red Dead Wiki, I just wondering. Also if you and anyone else who you know would also like more for Red Dead you are more than welcome to join the campaign.

Thank you for your time

Jack, can you have a talk with madscy? He's trolling on a few people. Dragonhunter 2336 18:17, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

Here it is

In one blog, he put people in two forms : "fat people and little kids" (which insaulted me and my little bro because he plays my wii) another one he called it stupid, another he laughed at a rumour some anon heard (praticly insaulting him) another was he was insaulting a person because of his langauge, need i say more? Dragonhunter 2336 01:07, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

I don't want to start a fight, just tell him calm down with his comments. Dragonhunter 2336 03:07, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

lol jack im not trolling at all. just because i think the Wii is lame, thats my opinion. yes i said it was for kids and fat people, if he is insulted by that than he is either one or both of those. how am i supposed to know. dragon you post on blogs all the time saying non sense, what do you expect. sorry jack, ill leave my comments to minimum on dragon. Madscy 15:33, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

Ok madscy, no i don't call stuff non sense anymore i just say "no, just no" when i dissagree on somthing, now i'm giving the thought to agree on stuff, not insault people by what they say or because they are from a different country. Dragonhunter 2336 15:48, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

no, just no. that is all.Madscy 15:51, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

Now we are getting somewhere! Dragonhunter 2336 15:54, October 19, 2011 (UTC)


Extract images directly from the game. Maybe there are some things Beta. Rockstar usually leave "traces" in their games.--Chiquito 16:55, November 3, 2011 (UTC) Use several programs (A Game ISO Xbox)Too I can extrac models or terrain--Chiquito 17:10, November 3, 2011 (UTC) That's more complicated. The files will compile with strange names like 33434_656656.rcs0a. Rcs extension, the file in a matter of each photograph and look at it one by one. There are thousands and I still have a lot by watching. Besides, there are other files that have not yet succeeded in opening--Chiquito 21:21, November 3, 2011 (UTC)


Hey Jack,

Sorry for deserting you guys for the past few days. Shit happened and I found myself once again on the road, this time back to Dublin :(

I'm staying with my cousin for a few days, but once I get things squared away I'm gonna be traveling back to Da Nang, and hopefully then I'll be able to start contributing regularly again...if my new job will allow me :P

Again, sorry about my abscence.

Personal Attacks in Blog Comment

Hey JackFrost,

I saw some idiot insult the writer of a blog. I don't know if what he said is a personal attack or not but I'm pretty sure it is and personal attacks are against the rules. Read the comment for yourself and see what you think.

i took those pictures from If i had a capture card, i would have pictures for EVERYTHING, as i am a bit of a OCD-type person.

Tjlongshot 20:44, November 30, 2011 (UTC)

ok, thanks for the advice. btw how does the chat thing work? i never see anyone else on the chat.

im so sorry, but i accidentally uploaded the same photo twice, and on top of that, i accidentally replaced the stock image on the vulture page. i would like to keep the second photo i uploaded, however, i dont know who uploaded the original vulture stock image, so hopefully they see the mistake and are able to re-upload their image, as it was accidentally replaced. again, i am very sorry and embarassed by this mistake.

Tjlongshot 01:06, December 1, 2011 (UTC)

RE:Are We Sure On This?

Yes, I'm sure. I didn't just make up the name Ramiro de la Cueva. I took his picture, then let him kill me, and it told me his name.

However, there's a possibility that I made a mistake. I used to get names in groups, so I'd have a name written down with a small description of the NPC, and a group of pictures; there might have been a mix up, but I doubt it. Feel free to check up on that.

Jack, whats going on with chat lately? I was just by myself on it the other day and it got all messed up. It basically just shut down on itself. You've been there when its laggy, have you got any reason for why it might be like this? Peace.

Alright, so let me know what you think! It looks really nice all nestled beside a pic. :)

The fact that political ideologies are tangible realities is not a proof of their vitally necessary character. The bubonic plague was an extraordinarily powerful social reality, but no one would have regarded it as vitally necessary.

Background stories

Hello Jack!

I discovered that the user is 'vandalising' some pages in a very special way. He kinda makes up background stories for certain characters, then adds it to the page. This already happened two times now. I think it's not a real 'evil' way of vandalising...I don't even know how to call it, but it's really annoying and since it's not canon something like that doesn't belong into the articles.

i just wanted to inform you about this! Thank you :) QueenAnnesRevenge 23:33, January 4, 2012 (UTC)

Admins page

Hi Jack,

I was thinkin' to do something like that (made by me) on the admins page here.

Other Examples

What do you think? -- Ilan xd 17:06, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

So sorry. I will try to Alphabetize in the Future.

New Story!

Hey Jack!

I have made a new story! It is called AJ1776's New Story: Dutch's Empire? Just to let you know, I followed the instructions that you gave me in that one chat session. I would be very obliged for you to read and comment.

Posse stuff..


Heey made a mistake, I changed the of a posse from The Red Army Clan to Posse:The Red Army Clan and it didnt automatically add the page to the posse section. Please fix this.

I am never touching posses again.. should have listened to 2ks4

Message wall

Heey Jack,

I made a blog post on the new Message Wall feature, this new feature replaces the talk page with more organized and awesome designed message wall. Check it out and comment please.

Posse Rules

Well i looked at the posse rules page and it said nothing about pictures, i assume pics that are on the wiki are availible to all.

Indian Gravesite & Unwanted Pictures

I'm trying to find the location of indian gravesite that you posted ----------------->

Just some general, not to cryptic, tips on it's location will do. I will attempt to find it myself from there, the dirt looks quite dry, maybe a desert?

Also I added some photos to my personal page, yet they ended up in the Red Dead Wiki photo bucket. They don't have anything to do with the game, and I did'nt really want them posted threre. I cannot see any prompts in the public photo section to remove them, can you help?

Thanks, Rippa6.

—Preceding unsigned comment added by Rippa6 (talkcontribs)

Hi Jack

Yep, I do know about the Mystery site. I added theory 6 to the page, and I know the location of the gravesite at repentance rock. It's the Jeremiah Monument location I'm unsure of, I probaly should've mentioned that. Any clues would be appreciated, also thanks for the help with photos, I was'nt sure about that one.


Rippa6 :)


Haha, no not movie, the game! I don't where the Jeremiah/Indian monument is in the game. Any tips on it's location would be appreciated.




Oh ok, cool. Thanks for that Jack, I appreciate the help. It really had me stumped there for awhile! lol :)

User rights

Jack, could you please remove the admin rights for WugHD2.0? He's currently listed as inactive (though, I am moving him to former) on the admins page, but Riley pointed out that Wug made a blog about his resignation. Since he resigned, he should no longer retain his rights. Cheers.

Sláinte mhaith! - Hobbes (Talk) 02:29, February 3, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. I must say, I haven't either. However, he joined about a month before me and was active through the summer. As you know, I joined in late-spring and was inactive through the summer, before returning in autumn. That would explain how I missed him. :)

Article Help

Don't you think the current wording of the page Paternal Pride sounds kind of cheesy and has unneeded suspense? Shouldn't the wiki read more like an info page and less like a scary novel? Any feedback would be great.

Thank you,

Profile change and Inactive posse

Heey Jack,

I talked to Hobbes and he suggested it would look better on your profile if it said bureaucrat instead of admin. If you want i could change the common.js with java scripting so it would say that. Here is how the common.js would look once completed (here). Here is how your profile would look, think about it and get back to me. Also, i was wondering if a inactive posse project could be made to get rid of posses that have not been edited in the last 4-6 months perhaps.

Welcome message

Hi I am Cjbeattie Admin on Red Dead Answers can you tell me how to customize the welcome message that users get to make it like yours cheers.--The Buffalo Rifle Cjbeattie 19:52, February 7, 2012 (UTC)


Re: Just a Couple o' Things

User group

I had a look at Riley's message, and it seems that this is pretty simple. All you need to do is add the script below, to MediaWiki:Common.js and you're all set :)

/** Change "Bureaucrat" to newGroup **/
if((wgPageName == 'User:JackFrost23') || (wgPageName == 'User talk:JackFrost23') || (wgPageName == 'Special:Contributions/JackFrost23')) {
Infobox backgrounds

This shouldn't be too hard either. I already copied the script from the Spanish wiki into our MediaWiki:Wikia.css. All you need to decide is, which background to use on which templates?


The backgrounds should appear behind the big letters, if they don't try clearing you cache.


I tried to get the font to work, but it seems that Wikia doesn't support it. This is what comes out when the font is used. Another thing about the font is that it doesn't have any lowercase letters. This would make the articles a little hard to read. Although it could still be used for headers -- if Wikia supported it :)

If there's anything else you need, just let me know. Cheers :) --Anon(Talk) 00:40, February 8, 2012 (UTC)

To add the background to a template, you'll need to use the class="class name" attribute to the to the fields you want it to affect (like this). The hardest thing here, is finding the right lines to put the code in -- took me a couple of tries :)
Adding new backgrounds shouldn't be too hard, all you need to do is just copy the format and change the image URL and the class name, everything else stays the same.
For example. Take this:
.bg1 {
	 background-image: url(;
Change bg1 to whatever you want the new background to be called, change the URL to the new image's URL and you're done.
.bg5 {
	background-image: url(;
If you just want to change the image, you can do that by uploading a new version of that image and it should keep the same URL.
And don't worry about not getting all of this yet, I've had no idea how these things worked until you asked me about it the first time. And I'm still no expert :D --Anon(Talk) 19:44, February 8, 2012 (UTC)
