Excellent[edit source]

job on the Battle of New Jacinto page! But you need to add page sources to articles, so we know where to look to confirm information. Other than that, keep up the good work. --The Forgotten Jedi 23:49, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

  • Yeah well I've never really created a page before let alone a template (which I did for the Lambent Invasion) so I honestly didn't know what I was doing.--WarGrowlmon18 00:04, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
    • Well, you did a wonderful job. Do you know how to add references? --The Forgotten Jedi 00:08, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
      • No, I barley knew how to do what I did let alone references. I was completly winging it with creating that and the Battle of Pelruan pages. Feel free to add some if you want, but I am done for tonight. I had to put A LOT of effort into what I did do, having to go through the pages of the book and put in details, figure out how to make the pages, creating that template (I have a little experience in making pages (I made the Battle of the Colony page on the Battlestar Wiki but that's it) but absolutly NO experience with creating templates)....... I just got tired of those red links for the battle pages.--WarGrowlmon18 00:13, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
        • Well, very good job. I didn't try to make battle pages for a long time after I began editing. I think they are the hardest pages to make. I'll put in the references when I have time. Didn't you used to edit on the Heroes wiki? I did too for a while, but stopped shortly before the show was canceled. Went under the name "Ratclaws" then. --The Forgotten Jedi 00:23, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
          • Yes, I edit on many wikis under this same name (all you have to do is log in apparently), but I very rarley create pages and I've never encountered one where you had to put in references like this one has you do. The other ones are mostly TV shows so they're easy to do, but I have no idea how they do that here. I LOVED Heroes, on the DVD before Brave New World (final episode) the show creator appeared having asked to be put there and basicaly said he was going to try to resurrect that show in some form. Hopefully that means a movie or something like that.--WarGrowlmon18 00:36, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
            • I hope so, I loved Heroes too. Should have gotten another season, even if would have only been 13 episodes to wrap it up. --The Forgotten Jedi 00:41, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
              • Agreed. A few nice deleted scenes on the DVD too, but none for the final three episodes which is too bad as The Wall had such potential for them and fanfiction (sadly there's very little for that particular episode which is surprising). By the way: I added Lesser Islands Free Trade Association to the Anvil Gate page. That's the name of Darrel Jacques gang according to Anvil Gate and I don't think the Free Trade Area actually appeared except maybe in relation to Massy, there may have been something mentioned quickly about his gang in relation to him but that's about all.--WarGrowlmon18 00:45, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
                • I think they are one and the same. I'm fairly sure it's a mistake on Karren Traviss's part. It's one of several things she needs to be emailed about. --The Forgotten Jedi 00:55, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
                  • Dude they're not. It's made clear that that's Jacques' gang, both in that passage and from Ollivar himself and in Jacinto's Remnant Baird identifies Jacques' gang as a rival gang after speaking to Massy. They're clearly not the same, just have similar names.--WarGrowlmon18 01:04, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
                    • Hmm, I seem to remember someone mentioning that Jacques' had led a coup. I'll go back and take a look. --The Forgotten Jedi 01:12, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
                      • I read that. Actually Anya thought that before they found out the truth about Massy's relationship with Jacques. Afterwards its made quite clear that Jacques is just the leader of a rival gang.--WarGrowlmon18 01:14, September 4, 2010 (UTC)
                        • Ah, okay. Wish they didn't have such identical names. --The Forgotten Jedi 01:19, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Locust-War and my workbench[edit source]

My main project is the Locust-War page right now so please don't update it since its make my job like 1% harder.--JacktheBlack 18:57, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks[edit source]

for all the cleanup edits. That's helping a lot.--The Forgotten Jedi (talk) 17:23, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

  • Some pages really need them and I don't even know where to begin.--WarGrowlmon18 (talk) 18:54, September 3, 2012 (UTC)

Admin[edit source]

You are now a Admin. Good luck!--JacktheBlack (talk) 23:55, September 7, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, never been one before. Can you fill me in on what that intails because I honestly have no idea.WarGrowlmon18 (talk) 03:53, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

Can you help me out? Zane T 69 gave me an inifinite ban on the Supernatural wiki, I confronted him about it and tried to reasonable and he unban me. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks for your message my Gear brother! I look forward to working with you also. Till the next time :)

(Hello) Hi can we talk about Jack jnr?

Introduction[edit source]

Hey! My name is Atvelonis, and I'm the Fandom Wiki Manager for Gearspedia as well as an admin on Elder Scrolls. I'm here to help you and the wider community, and act as a liaison between you and Fandom Staff. If you ever have any questions or issues related to the wiki, its features (editing, templates, bots, etc.), or whatever else, feel free to reach out to me on my talk page or on Discord (Atvelonis#9495) and I can help out! —Atvelonis (talk) 21:13, May 2, 2019 (UTC)


Edits[edit source]

Could I ask why you keep reverting my edits, which are clearly superior to the original version of what I wrote? Thanks. Chairman Fenix (talk) 18:52, July 22, 2019 (UTC)

I'd appreciate a quick response since I'm actively trying to make the wikia better. Chairman Fenix (talk) 19:07, July 22, 2019 (UTC)

Problematic editor[edit source]

Would you please consider blocking 24.191.243.36? He's not a vandal, but he appears to have a not-great grasp of English grammar and punctuation (confusing its and it's, removing commas that should stay, adding -ed and -ted suffixes to words that don't need it, like "putted" and "cutted" and "spreaded"), and has not responded to warnings. You've reverted a number of his edits yourself, but others have been slipping through and I've tried fixing several manually. It's time consuming to have to keep cleaning up after this editor, scanning entire long articles for his errors because the edits he makes are so extensive, and frustrating that he won't take responsibility for his mistakes. UIR Partisan (talk) 22:07, September 7, 2019 (UTC)

Hello again. I was looking through some pages and it seems the editor I brought up above has resurfaced under a new address: 24.191.243.44. He has been active since December and edited dozens of articles to insert incorrect grammar and punctuation, and not all of those edits have been reverted. Your block on his previous address did not deter him, so you might want to do an IP range block this time. UIR Partisan (talk) 00:45, May 14, 2020 (UTC)

Please do not delete my editing[edit source]

Why did you delete the editing of Sire .

Helping out[edit source]

Hey! Hope you're doing well. Gearspedia is currently a trending wiki, so it's getting a good amount of traffic. I wanted to reach out to ask if there were any outstanding tasks that need to be completed in terms of wiki content or revitalization. If you know of anything that could be improved, like content that needs to be added, templates that need to be updated, or if you want to improve the main page or something, myself and/or the Content Team would definitely be happy to help there. So let me know! Thanks. :) —Atvelonis (talk) 18:32, September 16, 2019 (UTC)

Hunt for the Locust Scientist[edit source]

Yes it was me! Sorry I was going to make the page and add references. Title is conjecture, but Rod Ferguson confirmed that Gears: Tactics takes place in 2 A.E. and the plot is about the squad taking down a Locust scientist who was inventing large creatures responsible for destroying whole cities.

--Gearslover01 (talk) 00:26, October 20, 2019 (UTC)

Gears Tactics. It's a new Gears game that was announced at 2018 E3. It plays like Halo Wars. It has yet to be released, but it is story-driven. Sid Redburn who wrote the whistle-blow letter at New Hope is in it, and the main protagonist is most likely Gabriel Diaz. --Gearslover01 (talk) 02:53, October 20, 2019 (UTC)

  • Oh god. Halo Wars was always the Halo game I had the most trouble with and I haven't even gotten to Halo Wars 2 yet!!! For years I could never beat that damn thing or even get very far with it!!! I did finally beat it and got good enough at it that I've even beaten it a few times now but I abandoned even trying to play that for years. I think Halo 4 coming out might've motivated me to try again or something like that.--WarGrowlmon18 (talk) 04:24, October 20, 2019 (UTC)

Azura[edit source]

Azura is both a city AND an island. There are pamphlets calling it a city. Plus, because it's a COG affiliated city, it's a part of Tyrus. Much like how Honolulu, Hawaii is a part of the United States.

Swarm Hive Development[edit source]

Ever since the Wardens are in charge of scouting new locations suitable for new Hives, how are Swarm Hives constructed exactly?

1. Where in the world do these Swarm biomasses keep coming from?

2. These red fleshly tendrils spreading all over the area swarming into building ruins, soils, where do these tentacles come from in the first place?

3. How are the Swarm Nests built in the first place? Who builds the Swarm Nests and how many Juvies can fit into the Nest?

Interwiki question[edit source]

Hello WarGrowlmon18! How are you? I'm WFlash, Wiki Manager for the spanish video game wikis.

I wanted to ask you if you'll be interested in activate the interwiki links with the Gears of War wikis in other languages. I found a total of eight: German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese and Russian.

If you are OK with it, I can take care of them with no problem; just say the word. Thanks in advance, greetings!

WFLΛSH (My cave) 11:06, December 30, 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, it basically links all the wikis together so they are easier to find for readers. You can see an example on The Witcher wiki, on the bottom of the page (just under Categories) there are the links to all the other languages.
WFLΛSH (My cave) 11:36, December 30, 2019 (UTC)
So, I activated the links to the Spanish, Italian and Russian wikis since those are the biggest (the other languages have between 1 and 15 articles so they are really small); still, if you want them activated you can head on to this page on Community Central and make a request there. Greetings!

Questions[edit source]

Hi there, I'm Atvelonis, the Wiki Manager for this wiki. I had a couple of quick things to ask, if you have a moment.

So I recently made some slight modifications to the main page in order to optimize the reader experience and search engine optimization. I didn't remove any content, just moved around a couple of elements, and got rid of a few invisible tables (which should really only be used for data, not design) as they were not needed to maintain the structure of the page. I expanded the lede slightly so that first-time visitors would have a better idea of what the wiki and series actually are without navigating to another page. If you have any other ideas for the main page, feel free to let me know.

The last change to the main page I'd be interested in making is updating the poll, which has been the same since 2017. However, I don't know that much about the series, and wanted to ask, could you think of a suitable question for readers to answer?

And one more thing, right now this wiki is technically called "Gears of War" (e.g. if you look at the {{SITENAME}}), although in the wordmark and on the main page it's called "Gearspedia." Would you prefer if I had the sitename etc. changed to "Gearspedia," or perhaps "Gears of War Wiki"? Either of those would be a little less ambiguous than the current name. The URL would not be changed. Up to you, just let me know.

Thanks! —Atvelonis (talk) 00:07, April 26, 2020 (UTC)

Hi again, hope you're doing well. Just bumping this message in case you overlooked it. If you don't have an opinion on any of this, I can just make a generic poll asking about which game is everyone's favorite, and I could go with "Gearspedia" for the sitename in accordance with the wordmark. These things aren't critical, but it's good to keep the place tidy all the same. —Atvelonis (talk) 17:20, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

Content[edit source]

1) I didn't remove those spaces, source editior removes unneeded spaces by itself.

2) If the content that I post is badly written, why not edit yourself instead of removing content entirely? It's not that hard.

Including Image for Locust Sniper page[edit source]

Hello WarGrowlmon18! I assume that you're the one to talk to when it comes to editing.

I want to include an image for the Locust Sniper page that shows the image of the grub after killing Anthony Carmine. But I'm having trouble with editing the page to include the image (no changes have been published).

Can you give me a hand? I'm willing to just show you what the image looks like and letting you edit the page.

Thanks, WeareVenom16 (talk) 15:07, May 15, 2020 (UTC) WeareVenom16



A Locust Sniper, after killing Anthony Carmine

I just don't fully know how the edits work. I do need to practice, but I also thought that maybe it's better to let you add the image in. If you think it fits into the article.



WeareVenom16 (talk) 16:35, May 15, 2020 (UTC)

Ok, Thanks!



WeareVenom16 (talk) 14:08, May 18, 2020 (UTC)

Luis 140 Lincoln[edit source]

Hey what’s up? Just asking that’s all. Just wondering too. I still am.

Just a quick question and a suggestion[edit source]

Howdy, how's tricks? Just dropping you a line cause of all the staff folks here you're the one with the most recent edits. Was gonna suggest that you fine folks link your policies somewhere in the top tool bar or on the main page, had to go digging around for them to find 'em. It'll make it easier for folks to find them as needed. As for the question, do y'all have a policy on overlinking? I tried to look around for one but didn't find one.
