You gave me permission to archive your talk page a while back when I suggested it may be time, and I've finally got around to it for you. Christophee (talk) 19:57, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you kindly. CrashBash (talk) 21:01, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

Do my eyes deceive me or have you reverted someone else's edit on the Snake Bite (Switzerland) back to how I left it? If so, then how can I ever thank you? I never thought I would see the day when you would revert someone else's edit back to how I left it! I thought I was just a complete nuisance who always edited things unnecessarily (or incorrectly) to you.--Nononsensecapeesh (talk) 21:36, November 3, 2012 (UTC)

That edit was justified in my eyes, the reason is buried somewhere in this discussion, you'll see it starting with the word "EDIT" in bold.  STORM II  21:45, November 3, 2012 (UTC)
Well I'm glad someone thought it was justified and even more so that CrashBash agreed with me for once after all the trouble we've given each other, that is apart from me forgetting that Hydrotech did not actually get to contest the play-off which I will let CrashBash off for because CrashBash is right in this instance.--Nononsensecapeesh (talk) 22:12, November 3, 2012 (UTC)
If I may give you another bit of advice, could you maybe create a new header if you're starting something on a talk page unrelated to the last topic? It will make it a lot less cluttered. CrashBash (talk) 22:25, November 3, 2012 (UTC)

The BatEdit

Regarding Extreme Warriors: Season 2/Heat B...Shouldn't The Bat be classified as a veteran since Patrick Campbell fought in Robot Wars with frenZy prior? (Headbanger14/The Hardcore Kid 03:49, November 16, 2012 (UTC))

A robot is counted as a veteran if it competed in a prior domestic championship. Those three are the key words - prior domestic championship. A robot is counted as a newcomer if it did not appear in one before, even if it competed in a side-event for a previous series in that edition, OR competed in any competition in another version (hence why all the Dutch robots who competed in Series 7 are classed as newcomers even though they fought in the Dutch series, because they are new to the UK series). Tell me, did Mr Campbell compete in Extreme Warriors 1? Because that would be the answer to whether The Bat is a veteran or a newcomer. CrashBash (talk) 07:35, November 16, 2012 (UTC)



which bit do you see as being incorrect? and thanks for the advice, hopefully I'll get it right this time. regards Simon Chompalot 21:07, December 15, 2012 (UTC)

It was because you claimed Chompalot was succeeded in the Iron Maidens by "Robots of Destruction 2005", which is incorrect. First of all, the Iron Maidens competition wasn't contested again during Robot Wars, and we only count competitions that occur in Robot Wars. We certainly are not aware of any robot called Robots of Destruction 2005. We need information related to Robot Wars, you see. CrashBash (talk) 10:57, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
Thing is, your information wasn't incorrect, CrashBash just assumed so, as he thought you were some random user changing the wording on the article and nothing more. In most cases, I think we prefer the way the article was worded before, but you can feel free to re-add that part about why Chompalot couldn't enter Series 7, and change beak to jaws if you prefer that. Likewise, if there's any information we dont have detailed, and you think is worth sharing, please let us know. ToastUltimatum 21:26, December 15, 2012 (UTC)
No, I removed it for a reason, it was incorrect. He was claiming that there was a non-existant robot. CrashBash (talk) 10:57, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps I misunderstood the Honours section. I did not think it related solely to the Iron Maidens Tournament, and indeed there is no mention of it doing so. so I had added out Tournament win at the "robots of Destruction" in 2005 which is organised by the Diotor team. This however is not a reason to reset the whole edit.
OK, I understand what you're trying to say, but there are still numerous problems. First of all, as I have already tried to explain to you, this wikia focuses on Robot Wars, and only Robot Wars. Sure, we may have an additional tidbit on what happened to a robot after the series ended, but it is meerly that. Any tournament victories held after that are not included in the honours. The second point, I see you've noticed what happened so I won't go into too much detail about it, but any Honours like that are indeed related solely to that one tournament. For example, if you go to Chaos 2's page, you'll see at the bottom that it is listed as UK champion, and it mentions "preceeded by Panic Attack, succeeded by Razer". That is what that table means. Thirdly, no offense, but your grammar wasn't exactly the best as Christophee has already said, and really should have been worded much better. Since it didn't add much to the incorrect information already added, I reverted the whole lot. Finally, and I've already mentioned this, on talk pages, please remember to sign your name by using this symbol ~ four times. Thank you. CrashBash (talk) 17:51, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

2012 Winter Trivia QuizEdit

As you are a regular user of the wiki, I wish to inform you that the 2012 Winter edition of the Trivia Quiz to be held on chat will be on the 29th December at 3pm (British Time). Sorry for not giving you that much notice, but I've been busy with other commitments lately. If you need to refamiliarise yourself with the Quiz, just visit my blog here. Please contact me on my talk page to say if you can make it or not. Thanks and I hope you can make it to defend your title! Datovidny (talk) 17:14, December 16, 2012 (UTC)

Reverting Edit

That bit of information on Heat G was a perfect example of when not to use the undo button. Just because it's in the wrong place doesn't mean it's factually wrong and needs to be deleted. This is the kind of faulty practice I was talking about not two hours ago on my own talk page. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 21:56, December 17, 2012 (UTC)

It doesn't even make any sense though. CrashBash (talk) 21:57, December 17, 2012 (UTC)

Small tip Edit

Normally, I don't bother correcting people's spelling, as some tend to get annoyed by having their spelling corrected, but you use this word a lot, particularly in The Arena, so it's best you know. The spelling is not definately, it's definitely. Hope this helps. ToastUltimatum 21:55, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

It SOUNDS like an A, and Chrome doesn't give me a spellcheck...and besides, its set to American anyway. But thank you. CrashBash (talk) 21:56, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
The way I say it, it sounds like an 'i'. Does Chrome not come with a dictionary? It's a while since I used it because it's painfully slow on my laptop. Christophee (talk) 12:43, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
When you write "definately", does the word have a red squiggly line underneath it? I use Chrome and I usually right click on said word and select definitely. Job done. Of course, if the red lines don't appear (which they should unless you've been fiddling with the dictionary) then you need to make sure that you spell it correctly.  STORM II  13:04, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
It does do the squiggly line thing, but it's set to American spelling, and I can't figure out for the life of me how to change it. Because of that, I often just have to trust my gut instincts....sorry. CrashBash (talk) 16:34, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
I use a UK dictionary plugin on Firefox, which you could probably get for Chrome too. Then you won't have to second-guess whether it's a UK/US thing or a proper spelling mistake. Christophee (talk) 16:50, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

Best Battles Edit

I know you haven't asked for my opinion, but if you're interested, here's my two cents on battles.

  1. Bigger Brother vs Hypno-Disc
  2. Razer vs Behemoth (1st World Championship final)
  3. Chaos 2 vs The Big Cheese
  4. Panic Attack vs Cassius
  5. Chaos 2 vs Stinger
  6. Wheely Big Cheese vs Axe Awe
  7. Panic Attack vs Firestorm (Series 3)
  8. Firestorm 4 vs Bigger Brother
  9. Black Hole vs Philliper 2
  10. Lightning vs Thor

MattRobot WarsTalk to me 16:30, December 31, 2012 (UTC)

I would have gotten to you eventually. Thank you. CrashBash (talk) 16:31, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
Here's my €0.02. :P
  1. Storm 2 vs Steel Avenger
  2. Hypno-Disc vs Bigger Brother
  3. Hypno-Disc vs Splinter
  4. Typhoon 2 vs Atomic
  5. Gravity vs 13 Black
  6. Iron Awe 2.1 vs Bigger Brother
  7. Chaos 2 vs Firestorm
  8. Pussycat vs Razer (S4)
  9. Roadblock vs Recyclopse vs T.R.A.C.I.E. vs Robot the Bruce vs Cunning Plan vs Bodyhammer
  10. Terrorhurtz vs Razer
Didn't take me that long once I started pondering.  STORM II  20:16, December 31, 2012 (UTC)

Wild ThingEdit

Ok, I didn't realise the panel was on in the first round, my bad, must've been some kind of extra decoration and extra protection maybe. RelicRaider (talk) 19:19, January 1, 2013 (UTC)

Ragnabot Edit

I'd like to move on to the next batch of qualifiers, but first if you wouldn't mind breaking the Hammerhead vs The Alien tie. I thought I'd leave it to you as a judge. MattRobot WarsTalk to me 10:36, February 19, 2013 (UTC)

The Hurting Edit

I cna see how his messages might rub you the wrong way, but I'm asking you as a personal favour to please find some way to get along with him. Even if you have to ignore semantic errors, or complete and total avoidance, he's the only one here who knows how to build a robot, and has stores of good information. I'll really appreciate it. Thanks. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 13:35, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

That's why I thought I'd tell him before it got to "that stage", if you know what I mean. But I'll try. CrashBash (talk) 14:51, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
As a future reference, say aomething on the talk page immediately after the first time after your undo gets undone. Even if it means leaving the page in the wrong state, it's better to nip it in the bud early than go back and forth ad infinitum. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 17:10, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

Ragnabot Edit

I feel like I may have put you out a little bit with my selections for Ragnabot, so I'll try and best explain my logic here.

By and large, one robot = one entry. I waive this rule when there is a noticeable shift in the dynamic of the machine. Allow me to provide examples.

  • Plunderbird machines all followed roughly the same pattern - wedged, strong pushers, latter two had a crushing weapon. As a result, I don't feel they warrant two entries.
  • In the example of X-Terminator, X-Terminators 1 & 2 were fairly similar, box shape with an axe so this constitutes one entry; however X-Terminator 3 had a completely different weapon, so it gets a seperate entry
  • There was a marked design change between Chaos and Chaos 2, so this means two entries.

I hope this hasn't bothered you too much and my explanation has helped. MattRobot WarsTalk to me 21:35, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

It's OK, don't worry about it too much. It does make sense, I just figured that the original X-Terminator was slightly more different than the others. But I do get what you mean at the end of the day. I take it, therefore, that there'll only be one Firestorm (although I did expect that anyway) CrashBash (talk) 21:39, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
That is correct. MattRobot WarsTalk to me 22:01, March 20, 2013 (UTC)

The Stars Collection Edit

I actually have a copy of this set. It's possible you might have a different version. My copy comes on two double-sided DVDs. StalwartUK 14:22, April 13, 2013 (UTC)

I see. I've got the four-disc version, which does indeed come with the terminology and the "Cut Your Own Battle" version. Unless there are actually meant to be other features, of course, which I'm unaware of (not counting the interview with Team Razer, since it's exclusive). CrashBash (talk) 14:48, April 13, 2013 (UTC)
Here's some photos of my set: [1] [2] [3] DVD menu screenshot (it's the same for all four sides)
There's also one other oddity about the set. The side of the disc that should hold the Sir Killalot and the House Robots video (and it's labeled as such) actually has the first 70 minutes of the Razer video. Once more, on the "Battles" menu you can still see the clips from the House Robots video. StalwartUK 15:51, April 13, 2013 (UTC)
I will admit that is unusual, and completely unlike my version. CrashBash (talk) 21:15, April 13, 2013 (UTC)

Wheely Big CheeseEdit

By 'they' I was referring to the wheels, not the robot(s), but fair enough, your edit sounds a lot cleaner. Combatwombat555 (talk) 16:48, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Ragnabot Heat F votes Edit

...what was that all about? --GoldenFox93 (talk) 17:22, May 4, 2013 (UTC)

Talk to Christophee about it, not me. I only cleared up one he missed. CrashBash (talk) 17:28, May 4, 2013 (UTC)
Done. Apologies for initially not noticing, it was the one regarding your edit afterwards I'd been notified of. Sorted now, though. --GoldenFox93 (talk) 17:35, May 4, 2013 (UTC)
I assure you there was no malicious intent. I myself thought you had done enough to qualify for the Arena, so it came as a surprise to me. CrashBash (talk) 17:41, May 4, 2013 (UTC)
It's quite difficult to keep track these days with all the special permissions we're handing out. I still want to lower the quota one day to make things easier, but I don't get much support from the other bureaucrats. So it is what it is and we have to keep a close eye on who's voting. Christophee (talk) 19:10, May 4, 2013 (UTC)


OK, fair enough. But where does it say what the quota is? The Ragnabot looks like something I would like to get involved in. Jimlaad43 (talk) 05:01, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

All details can be found here. Christophee (talk) 15:10, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

Cyclone 2 Edit

Why exactly did you rollback my edit? ToastUltimatum 20:19, June 26, 2013 (UTC)

I already explained why. CrashBash (talk) 20:22, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
Well, it's better now there's a few Cyclone 2s in there. ToastUltimatum 20:20, June 26, 2013 (UTC)

Dead Metal Edit

What happened to my Dead Metal edits. I admit that they were a bit basic, but they were a lot better than nothing. Jimlaad43 (talk) 18:20, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

I deleted them because they contributed nothing. None of your "claims" were noteworthy or indeed relevant. If you want to improve Dead Metal's page, then all I ask are for some proper edits relevant to Dead Metal. CrashBash (talk) 18:41, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

Arena CommentsEdit

Look, I've tried to remain quiet for a while, because I'm pretty sure everyone's just going to back you, but you really need to cut out the comments you make to me on the Arena. I understand that it is a debate and The Arena was created for argumental purposes, but you've taken that too far, and very few rounds go by without you constantly making comments on my votes, and don't try and beat around the bush, they're ALWAYS on MY votes, whatever you say about that.

It's really annoying, it comes across like you just want to put me down to always look the smartest for every battle when there's a disagreement, and when things don't go your way (i.e. one person doesn't vote the same way as you) there's no need to even say something, because nobody asked you, and I usually end up on the losing side, but you don't see me directly arguing with people's votes do you?

Seriously, I mentioned it a while ago, I mentioned it again recently, and you're still annoying me with it, no offense, but I would've thought given your past on the wiki that you would've learned to not try and rile people up the wrong way. Datovidny (talk) 20:46, July 5, 2013 (UTC)

CrashBash, no matter how much you disagree with some messages, you cannot remove talk page content. If you don't want this to spiral any further, just... leave it alone. ToastUltimatum 21:56, July 5, 2013 (UTC)
But I'm sick of him continually insisting that he's the ONLY person I comment to, when that's not the case. In the last heat, I was commenting to RA2 and GoldenFox...heck, I commented to you earlier in this very same heat. All this nonsense he keeps spewing about me "trying to put him down"...I'm sick of it. THAT'S why I deleted it. I didn't want that nonsense in there. I hate it when people tell lies about me. You know that. Why else do you think I created a new account after Toon Ganondorf banned my old one? Because he claimed I was a troll and was "violating his opinions" when all I was doing was correcting mistakes he'd made. There, I said it. "A fresh start" was only half the reason. If David's going to keep on insisting that I'm trying to put him down, which isn't true, then this shouldn't be here. CrashBash (talk) 21:59, July 5, 2013 (UTC)
If that's what you wanted to tell Datovidny, surely you would tell him that, instead of deleting the message. I'm sure we've all got something on our talk pages we don't want, I should never have responded to Maddox in the way I did back when he was a new face. Sometimes we just have to abide by wiki policies and deal with it. ToastUltimatum 22:04, July 5, 2013 (UTC)
I've already told him before, though, that he isn't the "only one", I've already TOLD him that I'm not trying to put him down. He won't understand that. And frankly, his temper tantrum in regards to Ming Dienasty really PO'ed me, so he's hardly innocent himself of "directly arguing". I've tried to explain it to him, but if he's not going to listen and spew lies, why should I bother? I seriously feel that way. CrashBash (talk) 22:11, July 5, 2013 (UTC)


I think you'll find that all the bits of trivia for the 5 mentioned robots were written by me. It started as the comparison on Barber-Ous of it and Judge Shred, and after discovering the other 3 robots (sub version, iron awe and malc), I wrote the rest of the trivia myself. If you are going to change what I wrote, at least keep all 5 names up in all pages. Jimlaad43 (talk) 20:07, July 12, 2013 (UTC)

Considering they all mentioned Judge Shred, I find that difficult to believe that you simply wrote it yourself. If you had, you wouldn't have added it. And, forgive me for sounding rude, but I don't like having to clean up behind other users. It's better they learn from their own mistakes. CrashBash (talk) 20:25, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
I admit to copying and pasting it all, but if you check the time stamps, you will see that the Judge Shred info was originally on the Barberous page, and I kept it in the trivia for them all, as it wasn't in the Judge Shred page, so thought it was fine. I have removed the Judge Shred fact from all but its own page and left the other robots with just the names of the others. I am slightly offended though that you don't have any faith that I could write a fact about Judge Shred. The trivia sections are now fine on all 5 pages and we should just leave it at this. Jimlaad43 (talk) 20:52, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
That's fair enough, just be careful next time, OK? CrashBash (talk) 20:58, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
What was wrong with my additions to the Panic Attack pullbacks? Why do lots of my edits get reverted by you? All I'm doing is adding useful information and they get removed. Jimlaad43 (talk) 17:46, July 18, 2013 (UTC)
The same reason I removed all of your other edits - they contributed very little and were inaccurate. Panic Attack's lifting forks (not "prongs") do reach the floor. CrashBash (talk) 18:08, July 18, 2013 (UTC)

Something you have to understand Edit

When I say that an argument is over, it means it's over. I don't care if you feel indignant about a robot getting slandered, that's not an excuse to ignore my ceasefire order, and then take it out of the Arena and into talk pages. It's true that you weren't the only one who committed a foul, but the fact remains that you were the first to make it personal, and the first to escalate after I told everyone to stop. I'm giving you an official warning, and you'd be wise to assure me that that isn't too soft. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 19:16, August 23, 2013 (UTC)

Why are you only telling me this? I wasn't the one who wrote "Nice "logic" you have there", and that was written after your ceasefire and before the escalation. I call that "getting personal", personally. I'm sorry that it went that far and I'm sorry that my attempts to show David that Dominator could self-right came out wrong. I will confess I don't think things through before writing (hence my edits now), and again I apologise. But I still don't think it's fair I'm getting ALL the blame, which didn't help my outbursts. Either way, I've calmed down now and hopefully should be able to move on. CrashBash (talk) 19:43, August 23, 2013 (UTC)
RA2 has already given his reason, that you were the first one to involve talk pages, just leave it be CrashBash, I don't want to see you get banned, so just leave it be. :) RelicRaider (talk) 19:55, August 23, 2013 (UTC)
OK, I'm even more confused because I'm being told different things, but fine, I'll leave it be. CrashBash (talk) 19:57, August 23, 2013 (UTC)

Refbot disputeEdit

It was the way you said it, also what reason is there to totally remove the image from the page? I respect that you have every right to do so as that is the wiki way, but from what you've said in the summery, you've removed the image "because you don't like the wording I've used" that's how I've perceived it. And if there is already an image of it, then why not put that one in it's place and remove the other? As opposed to it having no place whatsoever?--BBTS :) (talk) 17:21, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

It was partly because there was, at the time, no place to put it. It was just there for the sake of being there, rather than to demonstrate anything. What you probably should have done was add an explanation as to what you were trying to demonstrate. Compare your edit with Jim's, and you'll see what I mean. Just a little suggestion for future reference. Also, please don't assume that every time someone deletes a post you did, they are having an "attitude", OK? CrashBash (talk) 17:28, October 10, 2013 (UTC)
Two things, A - I have added a trivia point on to the page to address the photo, and captioned it with a (potentially) funny quote from Jonathan Pearce. B - BBTS, I have had problems with CrashBash before, but the more you edit, the better he gets towards you. Keep up your good work, but try to leave opinions like "hilarious" out of the mainspace, as some people won't find it so. Jimlaad43(talk) 17:27, October 10, 2013 (UTC)
For Mr. Crash: Thank you for the explanation, that was what I needed. Also I didn't say you had an attitude because you deleted my post, because that's just petty. as I said I thought you had an attitude because of how you worded the summery, but that doesn't matter now.
For Mr. Jim thank you for the tips and for sorting this out in a way that made Mr. Crash and myself happy. I wouldn't like my start on RWW to be the same as my start on deviantART. --BBTS :) (talk) 17:42, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

Favourite robotsEdit

Hey, I am compiling a list of the wiki's favourite and least favourite robots and would like as many users to submit their opinions as possible. Here is the link. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:14, November 11, 2013 (UTC)

I don't even know what they are. CrashBash (talk) 12:24, November 13, 2013 (UTC)

Regarding Heat J Edit

I had a look there just now, and I found you'd said this- "TBH, I'm just glad GF isn't here right now, I fear he'd be throwing a tantrum about "Cheap As Chips" every single round". You know, I might not be able to vote, but I sure as hell can still read what gets put there. My not being there gives you no excuse to talk like that about me behind my back. Besides, even I know that TAN would've walked that one, so no. No I wouldn't have been throwing quote-unquote "Tantrums" about it. --GoldenFox93 (talk) 15:20, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

I really don't see why you needed to bring that up here. Does it matter if somebody mentions you on a forum page? Christophee (talk) 15:51, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
That's one thing, and that alone would've been fine. But insulting me and automatically assuming that I'd try and stir up trouble due to TAN being there is not. --GoldenFox93 (talk) 16:03, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
You really need to relax and stop getting so worked up about everything. I think that's probably the main reason why you keep getting into all these silly arguments with people. Just my two cents on the matter. Christophee (talk) 17:00, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
And yet you're not throwing a tantrum now? As Christophee said, yuo get way too aggitated way too easily. You seriously need to calm down and not rage so much. That's the reason why you were temporarily banned from the arena in the first place. Just chill. CrashBash (talk) 17:18, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry to get involved, but I'm on GF's side here. He learned from the Cassius/Terrorhurtz issue to vote for the robot that would win, and (to paraphrase) he does still respect TAN enough to know when it would win battles. I see that the comment made was a bit too far by Crash, to revel in the fact that someone has been given a temporary ban and is rubbing it in. Jimlaad43(talk) 17:13, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
I admit I might have taken it a bit far, but Christophee's more having a go at him for doing what got him banned in the first place. CrashBash (talk) 17:18, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
I'll agree that CB's comment was unnecessary and ill-advised, but I also don't think GF needed to come here complaining about it. These silly disputes are so unnecessary most of the time, and over completely trivial things. Christophee (talk) 17:28, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. I wouldn't say I was in the wrong for flagging it up, though. --GoldenFox93 (talk) 17:41, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
Whilst you were not in the wrong for flagging it up, you were in the wrong, as has already been stated, by the way you reacted. If you had just tried to be a little bit calmer about it, then maybe it wouldn't have gotten other people involved. I'm going to be blunt, GF, but your actions across the wikia really bug me, and I find you very hard to swallow. The way you act is a lot like a former member who would do the exact same thing - insist his way was right, throw tantrums when the results didn't go his way, show outright rudeness to other members and generally refuse to listen to advice - and I couldn't stand him. I know I've not shown the best amount of kind words involving you, but I genuinely do not want you to fall down that level, because the last thing I want is to have another wikia member I cannot tolerate. I'm not asking you to go away, I'm not asking you to change who you are...all I'm going to ask, in a polite civil tone, is that you try to be just a little more patient, less rude and actually take into account what we're telling you. Do you think you can do that? CrashBash (talk) 18:03, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
I don't think he reacted all that wrongly here at all. Rather than just disagreeing with a vote, he was actually being picked on and insulted here, so he made a firm and correct point back to you. Your last point in the last comment is right, but what you said Crash was more in the wrong than GF's response, which was firm but fair. Jimlaad43(talk) 18:11, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
I understand that. But he could have easily said something like...
"I had a look there just now, and I found you'd said this- "TBH, I'm just glad GF isn't here right now, I fear he'd be throwing a tantrum about "Cheap As Chips" every single round". I do not think this is a fair statement, and I would kindly ask that you don't make a comment like that about me again, please."
— GoldenFox93 which I could have responded...
"OK then, my upmost apologies."
— Me
...or something like that. He didn't need to rage, which is my concern. CrashBash (talk) 18:20, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

Any chance we can put this whole thing to bed now? Christophee (talk) 21:00, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I think so. I was able to flag up the issue, it's been dealt with accordingly, and I've also taken into account what Crash explained to me earlier about being more polite and more patient. I hope to be able to prove that's the case once my ban's been lifted- and even in the meantime, I do hope to contribute as much as I can with that in mind. It should be fine now, as long as nothing else like that happens. --GoldenFox93 (talk) 23:26, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

Magazine RequestEdit

Here is the scan from the RWM of the Chaos 2 vs Hypno-Disc fantasy fight. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:11, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Page 3

Much appriciated. CrashBash (talk) 10:25, December 21, 2013 (UTC)
Nice find! Being a Chaos 2 fan, I can't say I would've agreed with the result itself, but it's definitely quite fascinating to see more of the Fantasy Fights. Without sounding impolite, do you have any more of them? I'd particularly like to see the Mortis/Stinger/HypnoDisc (Issue 20) and Dominator 2/Berserk 2/Wel-Dor 2 (Issue 9) fights, if it's alright. --GoldenFox93 (talk) 18:13, December 22, 2013 (UTC)
If you're curious, GoldenFox, I had the intention of using this for an upcoming list. I have my thoughts, but I won't spoil. CrashBash (talk) 18:22, December 22, 2013 (UTC)
Oh really, what sort of list? I'm intrigued to see how the Magazine scans will come into play, there. --GoldenFox93 (talk) 18:42, December 22, 2013 (UTC)
Can't say, but you can always vote on my "Lists" talk page. CrashBash (talk) 20:06, December 22, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. In the meantime, I'll remain on the lookout and see what it'll be once it's up. I'm guessing it'll be something to do with the matches they had in the Fantasy Fights? They did have some fairly good ideas for fights there, but I doubt there'd be quite as many explosions if they did actually happen! --GoldenFox93 (talk) 20:13, December 22, 2013 (UTC)
Don't want to be a bit of a bother but can you transcribe the pages for me? I can't read most of the text. AlexGRFan97 (talk) 21:29, December 27, 2013 (UTC)


Just for clarification, I didn't invite him to troll here, I told him to go into the chat and talk to me so we could sort things out. No one else was there like in other chats, so I figured it would be a good place, plus it's on home turf for me. Just clarifying in case you or anyone else gets the wrong end of the stick. RelicRaider (talk) 17:40, January 12, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I already figured out he's retarded. CrashBash (talk) 17:41, January 12, 2014 (UTC)
That is not the most politically correct term to use is it Crash? Sam (BAZINGA) 19:07, January 12, 2014 (UTC)
To a normal person, true, but the guy was obviously a troll, with no intention of being a good member. That's different. CrashBash (talk) 19:55, January 12, 2014 (UTC)
So why not just say he's a troll instead of risking offending people? Christophee (talk) 22:14, January 12, 2014 (UTC)
My apologies, but with trolls it is sorta force of habit. CrashBash (talk) 22:26, January 12, 2014 (UTC)

Control yourself Edit

I know you don't like being called out, so I wouldn't do this if I really had to. You need to lay off the Sabre Tooth team member, who is providing useful information and trying to help - deleting it completely without a second thought is not helpful. Yes, he broke the formatting rules, but that doesn't mean we can't choose to find the solution that works best for everyone. Sure the proper way to edit is "not rocket science" to you, but this guy probably didn't know about at all until a day ago, and probably doesn't notice the talk page notification either - they're easy to miss. Wikipedia had a rule about handling dubious edits, "assume good faith." My bad for not adding it to our rules sooner, but you need to need to start embracing it ASAP. No more fighting with him, or you're getting a block - I don't care if he curses at you, insults your mother, or does anything else provocative. To the other members, please no one else post here, I don't need a million people trying to play backseat mediator. I'm not going to force you to apologize to him, but I will suggest it, and you can decide how importantly you value respect. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 00:21, March 1, 2014 (UTC)

Oh come on, I tried to be reasonable with him, give him some polite suggestions and I got blown off on them. Considering to put this..."awkward" certain other roboteers have been when they contributed to the wikia, can you really blame me? I get fed up, I get frustrated. CrashBash (talk) 08:14, March 1, 2014 (UTC)
Besides, it wasn't "without a second thought", that was why I addressed him about it on his talk page. Also, half of the time, I genuinely can't tell. There have been times when two roboteers have given conflicting views on the same battle, you know. CrashBash (talk) 08:35, March 1, 2014 (UTC)

Wiki warsEdit

Have you seen part 2 of the final yet? If not, The Alien has gotten the seeding below the on e it got in Wiki Wars 1. Sam (BAZINGA) 12:06, April 2, 2014 (UTC)

Hate to burst your bubble, but The Alien came third in Wiki Wars 1. CrashBash (talk) 12:13, April 2, 2014 (UTC)

Concerning the Sign Pages, thank you I thought it was for everything.--Timothy Sillery (talk) 13:43, June 12, 2014 (UTC)

Pronaxe Edit

I like the look of this one. And a very clever idea of yours to think of this design. Tell me, will you be doing a picture for ALL your UK champions, or just some of them?--Anderson9132 (talk) 18:40, August 1, 2014 (UTC)

Regretably, a lot of my champions were simply renamed pullback toys, or were lego models of real robots, but I will nevertheless draw any original ones that did well. CrashBash (talk) 19:25, August 1, 2014 (UTC)


Do you hate me or something? —Preceding unsigned comment added by RobotManiac (talkcontribs)

OK, three things. First of all, if you're not talking about the previous topic, which was Pronaxe, then you need to create a new header and not follow through to a previous one. See how I've done it.
Second of all, as it states at the top, this is a talk page, so you need to sign your posts using four tildes (~ four times) or the signature button.
Third of all, no, I don't. It's called constructive criticism, like what I've shown you just here. You need to be more careful with what you write. CrashBash (talk) 19:39, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

OK then, I understand now. Sorry for the mistake. Just new to wiki, still kinda experimenting with things RobotManiac (talk) 20:36, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

No problem, but as a heads-up, that comment WAS related to the previous one, so it didn't need a new header. CrashBash (talk) 21:57, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry for my unnecessary edits. I edited Robot Wars The Seventh Wars Heat F and you left that as I put it, but how come you change my other edits? RobotManiac (talk) 20:25, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

Frankly, I don't even know, all you really did was reword a description that didn't need editing. I guess the only reason why I didn't revert the S7-HF edit was because you didn't remove anything. But, seriously, those are the key words - "didn't need editing". There was nothing wrong with the description of the article you edited, and you actually removed a good chunk of what was written.
If you want to rewrite battle descriptions, then can I recommend only doing those that NEED it? Like ones that are barely a paragraph long? If it doesn't look like it needs editing, find one that does. There's plenty that need a good fix-me-up, but the ones you've currently chosen, regrettably, are not it. CrashBash (talk) 20:36, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

Which battle descriptions need editing? RobotManiac (talk) 13:44, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

The ones that look like they need editing is the only real answer I can give you. I believe there is a list somewhere, but otherwise it's common sense. CrashBash (talk) 16:32, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

I really should get out of the bad habit of putting it's rather than its. I need to get use to putting its RobotManiac (talk) 17:37, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Just remember that it's is the same as it is and you'll be fine. CrashBash (talk) 18:01, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Resetti's Wars Wiki Edit

I was thinking of making a wiki similar to this but about Resetti's Wars for Series' 1, 2 and 3. And 4 when it's finished.

I'm not the person to speak to about that. CrashBash (talk) 18:30, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Judges DecisionEdit

I need you and the other Judges to make a Judges Decision on the Elvis v Killertron v The Blob fight in Audited Series 1. I am at college today, so I will put up Round 2 when I get back. Drop Zone mk2 (talk) 08:05, November 12, 2014 (UTC)


How do I use a quote?

Wait, I might've found it. Not use.


By the way, I didn't edit anything on the 10th of December. I only started editing today.

You're new to wikias, aren't you? First of all, you need to create a seperate heading when you're bringing up a new point, rather than add it on to an existing one. The "edit" button should have an option to do this automatically, but otherwise, surround it in two pairs of "=".
Secondly, you have to remember to sign your posts. As the top of the screen tells you, this is done by using four tildes (~) or the signature button. Simply writting your name is not the same as signing, I'm afraid.
Finally, today IS the 10th of December.
I hope you will take all of these into consideration. CrashBash (talk) 23:06, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

 ??? Edit

What did I do wrong? I added information to the series 5 section of Dead Metal. That's on the job list and I was helping to do the job.RobotManiac (talk) 16:12, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

The job list asks to add relevant information. CrashBash (talk) 17:32, March 16, 2015 (UTC)

I give you credit though because this is the only wiki I know where people actually bother to look at the edits.RobotManiac (talk) 22:49, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

If it helps, the information needs to be about Dead Metal. That was not specifically about Dead Metal. So you know. CrashBash (talk) 22:51, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

Just want to make sure you see this (copied from my talk page) Edit

"OK, seriously, not only is he refusing to accept my apology and listen to your statement, but he is now genuinely being malicious! Do something right now, please. CrashBash (talk) 22:38, March 19, 2015 (UTC)

"Mate, he's not under an obligation to respond within 24 hours - I'd need a lot more hands to count on my fingers all the times I was absent for more than a day. What were you thinking with that "stop ignoring me" message? I'll grant I didn't say you couldn't post on his talk page, but I would have thought it implicit that I didn't want you doing or saying anything that could agitate the situation. I understand that the internet is an escape from the real world, the world where you can't always get your own back when you've been slighted. But this has to be a safe place for everyone, and you've done things you shouldn't in the past few hours. Neither of you was in completely in the right before, but the hostility, combined with deleting someone else's post on their own page, crosses the line. I'm giving you a mandatory vacation to cool down. You can sound off on your own page, but I'd recommend against saying anything that isn't apologetic or shifts the blame. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 01:06, March 20, 2015 (UTC)"
Look, I admit that I was in the wrong for deleting someone else's post on his own talk page, but "he's not under an obligation to respond within 24 hours" is not the issue. He DID respond. Why am I getting banned for hostility when he's allowed to say things like "Of course I'm talking on deaf ears, you will still believe that I'm being irrational and I'm the one with "deep psychological problems", because for me you're a classic case of someone on the internet keen to cause a stir" or "If you could see how tired I was right now you'd know how much your opinion just doesn't matter and how much I don't care that you're whining yet again."? How is what he is doing acceptable and what I did isn't? Oh, wait, you're probably going to assume this is me shifting the blame now, aren't you? Of course I'm not. I'm aware what I did was wrong, and I'm sorry. But this is injustice. You're having a go at me for "breaking an obligation" I didn't even break. That's why I messaged you in the first place. And besides, that "stop ignoring me" message was there when I messaged you the FIRST time. Why bring it up now? Oh wait, again, you're going to think I'm shifting the blame (again, I'm not). Yes, I know I snapped, and I'm sorry....but all I was trying to do was apologise. CrashBash (talk) 06:19, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
I let it go when you made a very barbed apology on his talk page, but that didn't mean I forgot about it. The block was for all the things compounded, with the talk page deletions simply being the last straw. He said he didn't want to talk to you, and you made the decision to talk anyway; this is what I was talking about when I said that you can't always get your own back. He's not off the hook - he is still on notice not to engage with you. Likewise, I don't want you making any more messages addressed to him. I'll admit I was wrong about the chronology in which events happened, but all things considered, a 3 day block is generous. Serve your time, be a good citizen when you get back, and this will all be behind us. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 00:54, March 21, 2015 (UTC)
I'll be completely honest, you gave me this ban to "cool down", but all things considered, circumstances just stressing me out more. I'm sorry I have to say that. All I can realistically say is that I'll try....CrashBash (talk) 07:07, March 21, 2015 (UTC)

David, please read thisEdit

I was seriously just trying to apologise to you. Why is this so difficult to understand? I regretted snapping at you on the Arena forum in the first place, that's why I actually went back and reinstated your vote which I removed in a fit of rage. Why do you keep slagging me off when all I'm trying to do is make amends for my actions? Even now, you're still doing it. Can't we just make up? CrashBash (talk) 22:43, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

Want me to post this on his talk page so he's more likely to see it? Combatwombat555 (talk) 22:45, March 20, 2015 (UTC)
Please, although given his state, he's likely not going to listen. CrashBash (talk) 22:49, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

Poll Edit

How can I get a poll that I've made to be a featured one on the home page?RobotManiac (talk) 15:20, March 21, 2015 (UTC)

You probably can't, unless you post it as a suggestion. I honestly don't know. CrashBash (talk) 15:55, March 21, 2015 (UTC)
I believe Madlooney6 is the user who changes the polls, I would talk to him about it. Combatwombat555 (talk) 15:58, March 21, 2015 (UTC)


I'm starting to wonder if you have a problem with me and my edits bub. But by sound of it your against me putting some bits of information on certain robot pages are you.

Two bits of advice I would like to give. First of all, I would advise you to create a new heading, like I have done now, especially if it's unrelated to the topic at hand (in this case, it had nothing to do with polls). Secondly, as the guideline clearly says, "This is a talk page. Please remember to sign your posts using four tildes (~ four times) or the signature button".
But more to the point, no, I don't have a problem with you or the fact that you're editing, I meerly have a "problem" with what you are writing. A lot of it is simply not relevant to the article. That's why I deleted them. CrashBash (talk) 17:00, March 25, 2015 (UTC)

If you won't respect what I doing, I won' respect you're edits.

Again, as the page clearly states, you need to sign your posts using four tildes (~ this) or the signature button. Also, with all due respect, you need to improve your grammar. It's "I won't respect your edits".
But, again, that's not the point. The point is, you need to be more careful with what you write. As I said before, a lot of what you're writing is not relevant to the article you're trying to contribute to. I admire your enthusiasm, don't get me wrong, but it needs to be relevant. Respect has nothing to do with it. CrashBash (talk) 09:30, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

This is way you always find my contributions rubbish and you have the cheek and to get rid of them.

Sign your name. I have told you this several times. Why can't you understand that? CrashBash (talk) 09:44, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

I'm in my twenties (not saying how old) and tell me this, are people like you control freaks or not. (Lewis05) there happy, I left my name.

No, that's still not right. As I have clearly said, you need to use four tildes (~ this symbol) or the signature button. And how is offering constructive criticism being a "control freak"? It's not my fault you won't accept it. I'll admit I've not got the best of tempers/attitudes, but I really tried to keep my patience. Can I please ask you find another way to contribute other than searching out "grudge matches" that eventually become redundant? CrashBash (talk) 09:52, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

Not feeling it anymoreEdit

Hey guys...I'm really going to be honest here, due to various factors, I'm just not enjoying being on this wikia anymore. I don't really want to go into too much detail, but either way...I would leave completely, but we all know that won't happen, because every time I've tried to leave, I've ended up coming back. But I'm barely contributing anymore, and I'm not enjoying essentially being dead-space. Basically, unless something miraculous happens, don't expect to see me around too much more.

With that being said, there is probably one last quick thing I need to do...CrashBash (talk) 16:05, April 17, 2015 (UTC)

If you become "inactive", how many actually active admins would that leave us? Jimlaad43(talk) 17:07, April 17, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I'm no admin. CrashBash (talk) 17:20, April 17, 2015 (UTC)
Question, does this mean I am going to have to alter the Unsung Heroes Base page because I still have you listed as a judge on it.--Nononsensecapeesh (talk) 17:39, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
Probably. But that shouldn't be too difficult, I wouldn't have thought. CrashBash (talk) 18:24, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
Never said it would be difficult, I just wondered.--Nononsensecapeesh (talk) 18:52, April 20, 2015 (UTC)
