Off the RecordEdit
Nice work with cleaning up the "Off the Record" page. I never thought that there would be so many grammar/spelling mistakes one of the more important pages of the wiki. Mutant705 (talk) 16:43, December 14, 2012 (UTC)
Welcome Admin Edit
Finally we've got an Admin on the site. I've been around for over a year, and I've only seen a few admins a couple of times. I haven't been on much since I got the Survive a Year badge, but I'll help out if you need anything, as I am a fan of the series- wish I had the games themselves though.

User Page Vandels Edit
I'm inactive in here to be perfectly honest, I can promise you that it's not me editing my page however feel free to protect it. I know I'm being stalked by one I.P address after I got him banned on another wiki it's possibly him.—Riley Heligo 07:49, March 5, 2013 (UTC)
Yup it was the same guy.—Riley Heligo 07:50, March 5, 2013 (UTC)
Two vandles Edit
Mind undoing these guys' work and banning them- I'm unable to fix what they messed up.
OTR Pages Edit
Do you want me to make pages for the two OTR pages that don't already have any?
Katey Greene Edit
Have fun. :D
The Curious Case of El Morabeth Edit
For the longest time on this wiki, I've seen the unexplained phrase "Salem El Morabeth" being used on the main zombie page in reference to the Queen larvae's immune-system damaging virus (that inevitably helps to create zombies).
The problem is that this information is not cited nor expanded upon in any way after the mention of the name. I made a note of this on the zombie:talk page; I've never seen this title used in any Dead Rising material I've seen thus far. Is this a case of misinformation or merely a severe lack of citation?
Honestly, I'm moreover curious about where such a crazily eccentric name came from. If this is the official name of the virus, that's most definitely something we should note.
Here's the only reference I've been able to find on the entirety of the internet: Zombies! You're invited to spread the Salem El Morabeth infection on Twitter for the chance to get a hold of Dead Rising Merchanise! Head over to http://twitter.com/DeadRising and retweet the competition message to join! (Rules at http://bit.ly/VIjOn7)
This seems to be the official Dead Rising Twitter from what I can tell.
RE: Salem El Morabeth Edit
Very interesting! Considering that "Morabeth" is a REALLY obscure variation of an Arabic word for teacher or saint, I almost knew it had to be official in some way... average people don't make things like that up off the top of their head. xD
I'm not sure where this phrase came from, but it sounds like it might be source material. Considering that Dead Rising is an innately Japanese series, it may be something the fans have never seen. It's definitely staying... but I'm really interested to know more about this now, honestly.
I know for a fact that this phrase is never mentioned in ANY of the current six games, for starters.
I'll keep working on the Zombie page's information, it had a lot of inaccuracies.
Essentially, the button to skip spoilers on the "Zombie" page doesn't work when you click on it - it just does nothing.
Vandalized Page Edit
Parent Filter Edit
Hi, Touhou FTW!
I wanted to swing by and let you know of a new feature we've recently released for interested sites. It's called the Parent Filter and can be accessed through adding /wiki/MediaWiki:ParentFilter to the end of the site's url.
The purpose is two-fold: 1) to provide information to parents about the site's subject from people who are actually very familiar with the content and 2) to eventually provide a home or hub for all such pages parents can visit.
Here's a great example of the feature put to use.
You can learn more about it here. Feel free to throw any questions or comments you might have into that blog.
hey there, I'm working on the Parent Filter initiative for Wikia. I've created a basic page for your site and am working on filling out some of the information, but it would be great to have feedback, edits, and contributions from your community -- you're the experts! I know with the upcoming game release lots of parents will be getting questions from their teens and pre-teens about the new Dead Rising game and this page would be really helpful for them. Here's the link to the current page. Thanks Generaltsao @ (profile)•(talk)•(email) 22:27, October 8, 2013 (UTC)
Messed up Page Edit
I fixed it.
Duplicate Magazine Articles Edit
I noticed that there are two versions of articles for Magazines in Dead Rising 2. Any way the same articles be merged with each other?
