Articles that need making! Edit

I think it would be a great idea to make a page where all the pages that need making should be listed, so that people have somewhere to start! -Ottsworth 16:50, March 23, 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, I was thinking of working on one of those last night but my PC died so I am on a laptop, I will work on that today when I get home.

Templates Edit

How do you make templates on this? I want to make a template like this:


 {{Infobox song |
    | Name           = 
    | Type           = 
    | Artist         = 
    | alt Artist     = 
    | Album          = 
    | Recorded       = 
    | Released       = 
    | Published      = 
    | Genre          = 
    | Language       = 
    | Length         = 
    | Writer         = 
    | Composer       = 
    | Label          = 
    | Producer       = 
    | Tracks         = 
    | prev           = 
    | prev_no        = 
    | track_no       = 
    | next           = 
    | next_no        = 
    | Misc           = 
    }}

Like the wikipedia one, so it's easier to access different pages. :s -Ottsworth 17:59, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

I want one one of these but I am not quite shure how to make a template for one, I will look into it and get to work, thanks for writing

-==+THE GMoD - Owner Slipknot Wiki +==- 00:27, March 24, 2010 (UTC)

That code is not the 'template' code it is the 'interface' for template, that is used to pass the data to the different items (parameters). see help:templates for some info. - BulldozerD11 02:05, April 16, 2010 (UTC)


I made one for Albums, you can easily use the same code of any of the album pages and re-use that code for any other pages with minimal modification.-==+THE GMoD - Owner Slipknot Wiki +==- 08:32, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

The template {{Album Infobox}} is missing some extra code that creates the styles (you need to copy from the source wiki) and paste into the mediawiki:common.css file. (The other missing wiki templates it uses I have added, to remove the "red template:some name" links that appeaared on the templates page).
I've added a template for you from The Templates Wiki that is a basic Infobox Album template - {{Infobox album}}, along with several missing standard / common templates and other templates that are used to build Infobox album.
You need to look at the code part and adapt it to suit the wiki. The information on the doc page (which looks like the example above will also need updating to match. This 'list' is copied and then pasted into each page the template is need ed on and the information (if known) filled in, to generated the Infobox.
Note wikipedia code is not 100% compatible and can be far more complex in some cases. You can create a song version from {nfobox album by changing a few of the row titles and the data elements. - BulldozerD11 02:05, April 16, 2010 (UTC)

Ownership of wikiEdit

GMod please note under wikia's terms of use you are the founder of a wiki if you started it, You do NOT own that Wiki., as you are asserting Ownership in you signature. Wikis are open to anyone to edit and thus 'belong to the community' of the wiki. (note im not staff, but noticed your sig on a post at Community forum) - BulldozerD11 02:05, April 16, 2010 (UTC)


Uhhg, alright I guess I understand, I am the admin and currently the only person working here, plus I made the signature back when I had the wiki temporarily CLOSED to public editing.

I will change it.

- -==+THE GMoD - Owner Slipknot Wiki +==- 05:13, April 16, 2010 (UTC)


It is changed, sorry for the problem.

- ---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 05:19, April 16, 2010 (UTC)

No problem, GMoD it is a common misunderstanding. I Just felt your rather prominent sig was likely to discourage others from participating & helping you build it. your new version looks fine to me. I can understand your 'possessiveness' if you suffered some vandalism early on. Note: - Some of what appears to be vandalism in some cases is just ignorance of wiki editing methods or etiquete. Often each editor believes 'their' version is right, or they have accidentally removed content due to not using preview & inserting material in the middle of wiki code resulting in non display of part of the page. I often find new pages with no usefull content since wikia introduced the new 'create page' popup dialog, I just delete them immediately with a edit summary of 'Test edit ? no useful content !' or similar. If you have a problem with a particular user contact wikia staff by special:contact, but you should first try to 'talk' to the user concerned by leaving a message about the edits and explaining the problem/issue and why you have reverted the edit etc . There are a number of useful tips at the Help wiki. - Hope that helps - BulldozerD11 12:12, April 16, 2010 (UTC)


Well the vandalism I faced early on where mostly hatefull comments about Slipknot.

---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 19:55, April 16, 2010 (UTC)


vol,5Edit

do you know when vol,5 will come out. i really want the albumJay666 15:24, April 25, 2010 (UTC)


Vol .5 will be out possibly in 2012. There is no way to be shure as it is not yet being recorded seeing as Slipknot is in hiatus.

---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 18:05, April 25, 2010 (UTC)


i didnt know slipknot was in hiatus. guess i'll just have to keep waiting. thanks...Jay666 04:31, April 26, 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, but look forward to a Stone Sour (Corey and Jim) and MurderDolls (Joey) album, Slipknot is on Hiatus mainly because these side-projects.

AdminsEdit

your the founder of this site aren't you. do you have the power to make someone an admin, if so could you please make me an admin, i am just a kid but i am completely devoted to music (mainly slipknot, korn and HIM) and i promise you, you wont regret giving me the responsibility of being an admin...Jay666 12:47, April 26, 2010 (UTC)


I can make you a moderator so you have certain privelages. I have trust in you, you seem like a good guy and if you are true to your word you can be a moderator.

---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 17:07, April 26, 2010 (UTC)


thanks i wont disapoint you....Jay666 20:51, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

CrowzEdit

what is crowz...Jay666 14:03, April 26, 2010 (UTC)


Crowz... is not as much of an album as an era, originally there where plans to release a sort of... 2.0 version of Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat.

The era was 1997 through 1998 and was pretty much a bunch of demo songs released and sent out to record companys. If they could not get signed, they would independatly release Crowz themselves, they ended up getting signed with RoadRunner Records, so Crowz was dropped and development on the Self Titled album began.


I am actually uploading ALL of the available songs off of Crowz.


Cheers ---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 17:10, April 26, 2010 (UTC)


AdminEdit

Hey man Im Dave, im pretty well known in certain communities on the internet and im an admin for a few sites, im growing into the web design world and i have a hell of a lot of expericne with wikis so id love for you to consider me as an Admin on your site, i can help with promotion etc. My Page on my wiki


Hey Dave.

I am considering you for Admin. But btw you get a few points knocked off by not creating a Level 2 Header on your post here, and for not using a proper Signature here. Besides that you seem to have a clean history and I might give you priveladges here after I see a few edits done here to check the quality of your edits.

---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 19:28, May 1, 2010 (UTC)


Ah well i have an excuse for that, the editor was on Rich Text, and theres nothing more i hate than richtext, i cant use it, but its on wiki text now so im good Dave20:59 ,May 1st, 2010(UTC)


If anything Rich Text is easier to use, its less flexible but it works for small edits. You can use Wikitext in Rich Text mode though.

---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 20:31, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

So hows about it, Adminship, i have lots of experience, im good with websites layout, Your main page if you dont mind me saying is dull, i can bring you some light to it, make it look awsome, give it some templates et cetera.? [Dav]e x 16:52, May 2nd, 2010 (UTC)

Ok you will have Adminship by midnight tonight, I just DEMAND that the links to the different pages are back (Band Members, albums, Answers, Gallery, etc)

Music videosEdit

I cant get any more music videos onto the Slipknot Music Videos page that I made, do you reckon you could help out with that please.....Jay666 06:11, May 2, 2010 (UTC)


also could you put people=shit live at the big day out on the live section my computer doesn't want to right now..... Jay666 06:23, May 2, 2010 (UTC)


i just want to run this by you first but can i add the music videos page that i created to the quick links on the main page....Jay666 11:33, May 3, 2010 (UTC)


Hey Jay. You can add the Music Video page to the Main Page. Please note that I am going to be slightly re-working it but thanks for putting it together.

---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 22:49, May 3, 2010 (UTC)


thanks. it not complete but its almost there. ohh you can call me jayke.... Jay666 07:40, May 4, 2010 (UTC)

Thankyou and Et Cetera. Edit

Hi, First of all i'd like to say thankyou for promoting me to Admin, i won't let you down, and i hope i can bring my experties and experience to the Wiki.

I'd like to propose some changes:

A Whole Page Called "Trivia", it could feature Trivia related to sLipknot stone sour and all else slipknot related

a better categorized Image and Video Gallery, preferably by era. :) Dave

Signiture_edited-1.jpg 20:08, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

Discog Edit

Take a look at the discog page, tell me what you think Signiture_edited-1.jpg 21:12, May 2, 2010 (UTC)


Looking good. I like it, I changed the Crowz box to have a proper link and the date to Unreleased. Also Early Releases is missing "The Basement Sessions" from 1992.

Besides that really nice work ;)

---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 21:14, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

thanks, sorry about that, i've never heard of the Basment Sessions. :) Signiture_edited-1.jpg 21:15, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, there is the Basement sessions, then there is Vol .5 (Upcoming Album) that will be possible released in 2012. How do you create another box to what you did on the discography page XD?
---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 21:23, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
just go on go on the discog page and click edit page and copy and paste one of the boexes and fill in the info from the ones allready there Signiture_edited-1.jpg 21:30, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

Block Edit Edit

I noticed youve blocked normal users from editing song pages among other things, im undoing these because how do you expect to get a community going if no-one can edit a page. Please don't contact me back on this unles you feel you have to. Signiture_edited-1.jpg 12:21, May 4, 2010 (UTC)


Yeah sorry, those are left overs of when I was completely blocking everyone that was not a moderator, I was doing this because I was Experiencing EXTREME vandalism.

---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 18:00, May 4, 2010 (UTC)

Spotlight Request Edit

Hi GMoD. I can see you have been working hard on Slipknot Wiki -- your customized skin is really nice! In order to get a spotlight by request you need to meet these criteria, including at least 200 non-stub content pages. Please feel free to ask again when you can meet all of the criteria! -- Wendy (talk) 05:05, May 11, 2010 (UTC)


About CrowzEdit

Those songs that are unconfirmed on being released or recorded i have some of the songs listed off of later albums.

or is that listing only about crowz.... Jay666 03:31, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


That is strictly Crowz only. As lots of the songs where later released on different albums.---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 03:33, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


cool thanks then i think that part should be called later released or something....Jay666 03:36, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


Actually allot of the songs there are unreleased at all (Nature, Fur, May 17th, Vizqueen). Plus alot of the released songs have multiple versions, like one with Corey and one with Anders. So a section like that would not work out. ---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 03:41, May 22, 2010 (UTC)



ok i was just thinking that we dont change anything but add an extra section for the songs that are confirmed later released....Jay666 03:46, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


Again, the problem with this new section is that there is multiple versions of these songs, with different vocalist. So saying that would really not be true, like if I put... Corey's version on Wait And Bleed on the list as released later I would have to put Anders version of Wait And Bleed there to because it is the same song but different versions. It just does not work. plus songs like Carve evolved into later songs, Carve evolved into "Before I Forget", May 17th evolved into "New Abortion" and more. ---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 03:48, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


oh ok then where would i be able to here the original Carve or May17th. i would like to hear them....Jay666 03:52, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


Well May 17th and such where only ever performed live. So thats abit hard. But I could definatly zip them up and put my collection of "Crowz" together for you to download?

Do you also need MFKR?.---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 03:56, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


i dont think i need mate feed mkill repeat i'll go check now....Jay666 03:57, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


i have a *knockoff* copy of mfkr and i didnt even realise hahahaha. im good for mate feed kill repeat....Jay666 04:08, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


Ok I will set it up and put it for download. Well I am at it, pop in MFKR and listen to Some Feel and Confessions.---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 04:09, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


cool....Jay666 04:16, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


Alright here man, enjoy: CLICK HERE!!!!!!!! It should not be up forever because it is on a gaming site but I did this for you.---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 04:45, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


thanks im downloading it now....Jay666 04:50, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


Welcome, least I can do.---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 04:51, May 22, 2010 (UTC)



these songs are really good why wouldnt they get relleased its a shame really....Jay666 05:18, May 22, 2010 (UTC)


I know, its a shame. Well, that stuff happens. There just was not enough room for therm and after the years they become forgotten. ---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 17:38, May 22, 2010 (UTC)



VandalismEdit

i think the pages should be protected to admins only to stop vandalism. but i also think that we should start using the disscussion pages so people can post things about the pages, and if the things posted on the disscussion pages are good, we can add them to the pages without the vandalism....Jay666 09:41, May 23, 2010 (UTC)


I have done this previously, but sadly I am now aiming for getting a "Wikia Spotlight" so I have to have most of the pages to "Members Only" That means people can not edit anonimously (without an account or signing into one). So that if there is vandalism I will be able to reverse the edit and block the account that vandalised it.

---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 18:34, May 23, 2010 (UTC)


ok so how do you get it on spotlight?....Jay666 02:48, May 24, 2010 (UTC)


Mainly I need 200 non-stub pages. And a few other little things. Also I hope you noticed that I am redoing the Video page (including renaming it Videos due to the variety of content I am putting there.)---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 02:57, May 24, 2010 (UTC)


the video page is heaps better than mine was but where are the live vids cos i went to watch one yesterday but it wasnt there....Jay666 06:23, May 26, 2010 (UTC)\


I am working on adding live videos, just it is not going to be one per song. I plan to set it up so it goes that you put the live videos by date on there. So If I where to put the entire Ozzfest 1999 setlist. Then I wanted to add the entire Dynamo 2000 setlist. I would not just add the songs played at Dynamo that where not played at Ozzfest, I would add them all, Also how are you taking Paul's death? ---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 18:22, May 26, 2010 (UTC)


cool and yeah im taking paul's death pretty badly me and some freinds were talking about doing a tribute song for him but i dont think it will happen i am listening to nothing but slipknot for the next week im memory of him. it is the saddest news ive heard since ever....Jay666 07:53, May 27, 2010 (UTC)



Other WikisEdit

ive been checking out some of the other bands wikis and not many even come close to the organisation and neatness of this wiki the wikis ive seen have a ton of pages but barely any (if at all) organisation its a shame this wiki isnt on the spotlight yet....Jay666 10:46, May 27, 2010 (UTC)


Thanks man I truly take pride in my work. I put more work into this than work into any other project. You can help me out by making pages about specific songs and once we reach 200 pages I can apply again for a spotlight.---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 13:03, May 27, 2010 (UTC)


i wall try my best and i will also try and get some of my freinds who are maggots for life to help out a little aswell....Jay666 00:11, May 28, 2010 (UTC)


Dude, I really appreciate it. Thank you. ---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 01:12, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

Slipknot Wiki Edit

Hello! You sent me a welcome message about a month ago, and I got on today and decided to reply.


Slipknot Wiki is ok, the only thing is I wish there was just like a place to just chill and talk random with people about whatever. If you have something like that on here, can you please show it to me, because the talk pages don't seem to be just that, they seem to be there for talking about the Slipknot Wiki only. (UNSIGNED comment by Xscarreddemonx )


Actually, I am working on a forum for the Wiki. I will link it here once I am done. And please do not forget to sign your posts with the "Signature" button on the top bar. ---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 19:04, May 29, 2010 (UTC)


band member pagesEdit

what happened the band member pages are a lot smaller now is there a reason for this....Jay666 10:04, June 2, 2010 (UTC)


Smaller? Looks fine to me, I centered the info and such but I really did not remove anything.---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 16:56, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Ad free Edit

Hi! Would you like this wiki to be ad-free? I'm looking for wikis to be part of a new program which would remove all ads from the wiki for $19.95/month.

If you are interested, please be visit here to sign up. Let me know if you have any questions! - sannse@fandom (help forum | blog) 20:41, June 2, 2010 (UTC)\


Wish I could afford it but sadly not.---/THE GMoD - Admin - Slipknot Wiki\--- 20:43, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Brandon Darner Edit

Hey i think i've found a video of Slipknot playing with Brandon Darner i dont know if this is 100% right but its better i think if you take a look at it here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGtIMlM8dU4 the guy who i think is Brandon Darner is the first guy you see he plays drums he wears the old man mask with a RED jumpsuit.


Hmm thats wierd! Nice video, thanks for letting me know about it!.

From what I can see this might be Brandon Darner but, as said, it is most likely Sid. He is seen playing drums at the begining of the video but it is later found to be Anders' set of drums. I am looking into it,

Again, thanks.
